On 15 January 2013 a debate held at the Royal Geographic Society. The Subject: Israel is Destroying Itself With It's Settlement Policy.
As expected it was rife with bias and "mis-Information". The first blow (against) Israel came in the form of maps that supposedly "Proved All of Israel" had belonged to the "palestinians"...until the Jews came along.
Although these maps have long ago been shown to be the opposite of the truth~like the blood libels, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, they are a great tool for the anti-Israel camp who refuse to stop using them. It was interesting that not one person thought to challenge the fact that the maps were a misrepresentation. Not only are they a blatant lie, but a lie that is now touted as "Absolute Truth", despite the fact that there was not even a "Palestinan People" until Yasser Arafat came from Egypt in 1967 to create them. Prior to that, Arabs living in Israel refused to be called "Palestinians". Remember, it was called British Mandated Palestine~which also included Trans-Jordan, now named Jordan, which coincidentally was Not on the maps, but I digress...
Caroline Glick was asked to speak (against) the motion and she did so brilliantly. She laid out the facts and the audience listened. Perhaps they were dumbstruck that a Jew could actually stand up and challenge lies, bias and bigotry.
Not surprisingly the lies, bias, bigotry and yes, even anti-semitic prejudice, ruled the day. What I do find surprising is that people consistently have such closed minds that they are not even interested in the facts. They have swallowed the lie, hook~line~and sinker.
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,
people will eventually come to believe it...Joseph Goebbels
The Truth Hurts~Caroline Glick is Amazing!
