Palestine/Israel- Myths and Facts

I came across this first article in my inbox and remembered some other myth vs fact sites I've run across over the years.


Think Again: Palestine

"Economic Peace Is Possible."
"Arab Intransigence Blocks Peace."
"Settlements Are Not the Issue."
"Israel's Occupation Is Not Apartheid."


Debunking 6 common Israeli myths

MYTH 1: THERE IS NO MORAL EQUIVALENCE BETWEEN SUICIDE BOMBINGS ON THE ONE HAND, AND ISRAEL'S KILLING OF PALESTINIANS ON THE OTHER

MYTH 2: ISRAEL'S INVASION OF PALESTINIAN CITIES AND REFUGEE CAMPS IS SELF-DEFENCE AGAINST SUICIDE BOMBINGS

MYTH 3: ARAFAT REFUSES TO CONDEMN SUICIDE BOMBINGS IN ARABIC

MYTH 4: ARAFAT HAS NOT DONE ENOUGH TO STOP TERRORISM

MYTH 5: ARAFAT SPURNED BARAK'S GENEROUS OFFER AT CAMP DAVID AND BROKE OFF NEGOTIATIONS WITH ISRAEL

MYTH 6: ARAFAT STARTED THE INTIFADA
