The 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 Jewish people jettisoned the national name “Palestinians” in favor of the national name “Israelis”.

    The local Arabs, lacking people-hood or a national identity, picked up the discarded word, dusted it off, and began the marketing of themselves as the “Palestinian people” as part of their propaganda and fight against the true native people here — the Jews.

      Exactly, which is why it is important to tell the truth about Palestine. Millions are being invested in a propaganda campaign to “rebrand” and it is working in Europe and around the world. Clever marketing can sell anything as narrative.

      So European jews were the true natives of Palestine? Really?

      • Real Jstreets

        No, Jews were the ones who made music and brought culture in Palestine.

    Are these pictures taken in cinema? This documentary has been around for a while. I’ve always wanted to see it.
