The Palestinians have turned down every single peace offer they have received… They even said no when Israel offered them a state of their own on almost 100% of the land that they demanded.. And yet, Israel is blamed for the lack of peace in the Middle East.
A year ago, 21st August 2013 I woke up in the middle of the night and took my shahada. After years of searching for truth, I finally found it. For whole this year I learnt a lot. I could say it was the most valuable year of my life. I grew up. I met people who became my new family. I came to know what people are worth to keep and what people I should let go. I tought others about my religion. I studied a lot about Islam and sometimes it was really hard for me.
Before I really hated Islam but then I had a dream that someone gave me Qur’an so I started reading it. I came to know it wasn’t bad religion. It was the only true religion wrong understood by some people.
A year ago, 21st August 2013 I started to live. I’m happy and blessed to be a muslim. Alhamdulillah.
A more accurate picture of Israel’s giving land it controlled up for peace since 1967:
This map shows that Israel gave up control of the Sinai, Gaza, Southern Lebanon and much of the West Bank over the years. Rather than falsely accusing Israel as a land-grabbing rogue state, it accurately shows Israel as perhaps the only state in history that has voluntarily given up more than two-thirds of the areas it controls in exchange for nothing more than a paper agreement - or sometimes not even that. All at the risk of serious security concerns for her people, no less.
This is all because Israel wants, desperately, to live in real peace with her neighbors. This desire is not reciprocated by those neighbors, unfortunately.
The real map shows the truth of Israel’s incredible concessions in the often vain hope for peace.
