Debunking Propaganda: ‘Israel Aggressor Myths’ Explained

Debunking Antisemitic Propaganda: ‘Israel Aggressor Myths’ Explained

Anti-semitic propaganda portrays Israel as the instigator of violence in its wars with neighboring Arab states, but it’s the opposite. On the first day of Israel’s establishment, five neighboring Arab countries attacked in response to its declaration of statehood in 1948. In response, Israel retaliated and won, while the defeated claimed victimhood.

This propaganda is perpetuated by Islamic apologists in universities, empowered by left-liberal politicians, and parroted by leftist media as “Israeli aggression.” Today, thousands of students rally behind Palestinians, including the LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter groups, out of ignorance.

1. Anti-Zionist rhetoric: “Jewish Supremacy”

Propaganda portrayed Israel as driven by revenge and hatred, which seeped into “anti-Zionist” rhetoric. This rhetoric justified the Yom Kippur War in 1973 when Egypt and Syria attacked Israel during its holiest time to reclaim territories lost in 1967. [History of Palestine]

Reclaiming territory to create buffer zones

In the 1967 Six-Day War, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria united to attack Israel, driven by Arab leaders’ calls for its destruction. Despite its small military, Israel won, reclaiming ancient territories.

These gains created buffer zones like the West Bank and Gaza, which were intended to deter future attacks, which Israel has every right to defend itself.

In 2005, the remaining Jews in Gaza were uprooted to give way for a Palestinian State. Still, Israel faced relentless attacks, such as suicide bombers and missiles, by Hamas and its radical Palestinian supporters.

The West Bank, located west of the Jordan River in the Middle East, is controlled by Israel, with parts also administered by the Palestinian Authority. This arrangement aims to create a buffer zone to facilitate regional peace and development.


2. The BDS Narrative: “Israel is an apartheid state”

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, founded in 2005, aims to ban Israeli goods, cultural exchanges, and academic institutions while urging institutions to withdraw investments from Israeli businesses everywhere.

BDS also aims to dismantle the West Bank barrier, purportedly achieve equality for Arab-Palestinian citizens, and ensure their right to return or rather to “reoccupy Israel,” as Muslims did when they invaded Jerusalem in the Middle Ages.

The demands of the BDS movement seem just yet to overlook the actions of Palestinian militants. They also accuse Israel of apartheid despite Israel granting citizenship to 2.1 million Arab-Palestinians through the years.


3. Israel is an obstacle to a Palestine State

Since the Six-Day War in 1967, the Palestinian Authority has accused Israel of obstructing Palestinian statehood through settlement expansion, ongoing military occupation, the Gaza blockade imposed since 2007, and the construction of the West Bank security barrier, initiated in 2002.

Israel has always supported a Palestine State

Israel has always supported the formation of the State of Palestine, culminating in 2005 when they uprooted Jewish citizens from Gaza so they could build their state.

Instead, they sent suicide bombers and missiles, giving Israel no choice but to install military surveillance in the Mediterranean Sea, as well as keep military forces in the West Bank, protecting both sides of Israel against constant attacks.

From the river to the sea

The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), founded in 1964, claims Israel refuses to allow a Palestinian state. However, they have consistently rejected peace accords, arguing they are unfair. Their true goal is Israel’s removal from the Middle East, as reflected in their slogan: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.

Peace accords signed by Israel, rejected by the PLO

  • Oslo Accords (1993): Israel signed agreements with the PLO, granting limited self-governance to Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
  • Camp David Summit (2000): Israel participated in peace talks offering significant territorial concessions.
  • Gaza Disengagement (2005): Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza, dismantling settlements and military presence.
  • Annapolis Conference (2007): Israel engaged in negotiations to discuss the creation of a Palestinian state.
  • Settlement Freezes (2010): Israel temporarily halted settlement expansion in the West Bank to facilitate peace talks.


4. Hamas-Israel War: “Israel committed genocide”

During Operation Protective Edge in 2014, amid the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, international media and advocacy groups accused Israel of targeting civilians, despite reports from organizations such as the United Nations acknowledging civilian casualties often resulted from Hamas and Palestinians themselves who used their citizens as human shields.

In 2024, the recent antisemitic rhetoric was that IDF committed genocide in Gaza, even if they were the ones who started the war by killing babies and kidnapping families in the October 7, 2023 attack.

Young people are incentivized “to die for Allah” by attacking Israel, often as a “suicide bomber.” Schools and camps glorify martyrdom, social media spreads propaganda, and families of attackers receive financial rewards.

Incentivizing Palestinians to attack Israel

For example, the Palestinian Authority spends $300 million annually on stipends for terrorists and “Martyrs’ ” families, promoting violence and martyrdom. [JCPA]

The Palestinian Authority’s payments to terrorists and “Martyrs'” families glorify terrorism, defy international laws, and persist due to donor and Israeli reluctance to address the issue, fearing further radicalization.
