Israel Committee of Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation

The purpose of the Israel Committee is to provide a link between the congregation and sources of news and current events occurring in Israel. This will improve the congregants’ understanding of issues faced by Israel, thereby allowing them to refute the many lies and misunderstandings propagated by enemies of Israel.

Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister of the Nazi Third Reich, once said that “if you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it is true”. The Arab world and its sympathizers are following that dictate in its attempt to delegitimize the existence of Israel. Some of their preposterous claims are

1)      Survivors of the holocaust stole Palestine from the Palestinians.

2)      Israel has committed war crimes against the Palestinian civilian population.

3)      Israel is a racist and apartheid society.

4)      Israel is the biggest enemy of the Arab world.


Refutation of these claims have been presented in many places. For example:

1)      The book From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters.

2)      Presentation to UN Human Rights Watch by British Col. Richard Kemp (see link below).

3)      The statistics of Israeli-Arab growth over the last 60 years (see link below).

4)      Israel should be emulated by the Arabs (journalist Al Mulhim, Arab News, 10/7/12, link
