Truth About Palestine: 1936 – 1939

BDS and Anti-Israel Israel Apartheid Week organizers must be very busy this year,

as their month long hate festival has now sprawled to a five full weeks.

Before their lies, hate and narratives get into full swing, it is time for a truth about Palestine.

Go back to 1936, long before there were “Israeli occupied settlements” as an excuse

and no one heard of the “West Bank.”

A boycott of the Jews of Palestine was called by Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini.

Violence and riots followed.

The British army built these pillboxes for their safety, around what was then Jerusalem.

By the end of the Arab riots of 1936-1939 in Palestine,

415 Jews were murdered.

But because of the boycott, the Jews of Palestine developed their own improved agricultural systems and were no longer dependent on Arab farmers.

1936-1939, could very well be the first #BDSFail.

Truth about Palestine.

 

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets

    The Jews also developed their own self-defense force through the sympathetic Bitish military genius Orde Wingate. If Wingate hadn’t been killed in a Burma plane crash during World War II, he might have become the IDF’s first chief of staff.

      MAJGEN Orde Charles Wingate was a realist and a thorn in British politicians’ backsides, for his friendship towards the Jews in Eretz Israel in the late 1930s
      Thanks to him, the Haganah boys and girls learned a few tricks. I doubt whether he would have become the IDF’s first CGS in 1948. The formation of the Jewish Independent Brigade Group in 1944 and the experience gained on active service by its members, and many who served in other British formations, produced many general officers in the IDF; the past 66 years saw many changes within the IDF.
