Islamic Terrorism in Israel

We keep hearing from Muslims around the world that Islam is the "Religion of Peace" and how terrorism is not part of Islam. Decades before there were any Arabs referred to as Palestinians, the first Arab sponsored terrorist attack upon Jews occurred. In 1929 Arab mobs massacred over 100 Jews, 67 of them in 1929 Hebron massacre alone, an ancient community where Jews lived among Arabs peacefully for centuries. Arabs then mutilated the dead bodies.

Long before a generic collection of Arabs were referred to as Palestinians, Muslims following the Koran were busy showing the terrorist nature of Islam. Hatred of "non-believers" is rampant and at the center of the Islamic doctrine. The Islamic community around the world would like everyone to believe that Jerusalem is a major part Islam, however, the city of Jerusalem is never mentioned anywhere in the Koran. It would be just as easy to claim that New York City, London, or any other city in the world is a major part of Islam. The only reason that Muslims want Israel is because of their hatred toward Jews, Judaism, and anything that is not Muslim.

Because of the hate-filled teachings of Muhammad, Islam is in a constant state of war with every religion on the planet. Every day in the name of Islam, Islamic fundamentalists attempt to kill non-Muslims i.e. Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists, for no other reason other than their hatred for anything non-Islamic. None of these other religions is at war with each other. They are only at war with Islam because Islam has the desire to kill them. It is not a war of their choosing. It is a war of defense and survival that is forced upon them by the followers of Islam. This is an easily understood concept when you read the following pages.

The Truth About the Palestinian People

When World War III Started

When a thorough examination of the "HAMAS Charter of 1988" is completed, you can see the true attitude of Islam. Modern day Islam teaches that all other religions fall under the umbrella of Islam and are only allowed by the grace of the leaders of Islam.

This page is a partial list of the Muslim atrocities committed in the name of Islam for no other reason than Muslim hatred of Jews. This list is not complete by any means. There are many gaps and omissions. Again, this is only a partial list. These attacks and many others like them from the daily onslaught from followers of Islam is what Israel tries to defend itself against every day.

Study the following actions by devout Muslims and you can see what Israel has endured everyday for over 80 years. Every one of these actions was done in the name of Islam. This is what it is to be a Muslim.
