This is the Muslim World

There are more than 1,100 million Muslims in the world.

This is the Muslim World

These are the countries of the world governed by Muslims.

This is the Muslim World and Israel

Israel is in blue – can you see it?

This is Israel

Israel is the only country in the world governed by Jews.

This is Israel

Israel is one-thousandth the size of the Muslim countries.

This is still too big for the Muslim countries.

If Israel was the size of a dot…

This would still be too big for the Muslim countries.

The Muslim countries said so back in 1948.

They said so in the four wars they fought against Israel.

They still say so today.

Some people say…

…that Israel is a “mistake”.

Some people say…

…that this tiny country shouldn’t exist amid the Muslims.

These people either don’t know history,

…or they have chosen to ignore history.

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…the Jewish Nation thrived for a thousand years.

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…the Jewish people were forcibly expelled from Israel.

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…even so, tens of thousands of Jews managed to stay.

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…Jerusalem has always remained the center of Judaism.

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…in the 2,000 years since the Diaspora…

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…no other people created a country to replace Israel.

They don’t know that…

Jerusalem

…Israel is the only nation to have ever stood here.

Now that Israel has been reborn…

Jerusalem

…the Muslims suddenly have a keen interest in the land.

The 3,000 year-old Jewish nation…

Jerusalem

The 3,000 year-old Jewish nation…

Jerusalem

…is now claimed by Muslims to be their “birthright”.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Jerusalem was built by the Jewish people.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Jerusalem is not Islam’s holiest city – Mecca is.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Jerusalem is not even their 2nd holiest city – Medina is.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Jerusalem has always been Judaism’s holiest city.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Jews everywhere have always turned to Jerusalem to pray.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Muslims everywhere turn to Mecca to pray.

This, despite the fact that…

Jerusalem

…Muslims east of Israel turn their backs on Jerusalem.

But, because tiny Israel lives again…

Jerusalem

…the Muslims cannot tolerate a Jewish state.

Muslim lands a thousand times larger…

…are not enough for them.

And a Jewish homeland a thousand times smaller…

…is too much for them.

They want to extinguish it…

…like this.

Thank you for watching.
