In an effort to combat the incessant lies being promoted about the Jewish State, the Simon Wiesenthal Center recently launched the Top Ten Anti-Israel Lies campaign. To kick off this effort, the Center produced the 2010 Top Ten Anti-Israel Lies brochure which tackles some of the most inflammatory accusations about Israel:
The Top Ten Anti-Israel Lies
1. Israel was created by European guilt over the Nazi Holocaust. Why should Palestinians pay the price?
2. Had Israel withdrawn to its June 1967 borders, peace would have come long ago.
3. Israel is the main stumbling block to achieving a Two-State solution.
4. Nuclear Israel not Iran is the greatest threat to peace and stability.
5. Israel is an Apartheid State deserving of International Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaigns.
6. Plans to build 1,600 more homes in East Jerusalem prove Israel is ‘Judaizing’ the Holy City.
7. Israeli policies endanger U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
8. Israeli policies are the cause of worldwide anti-Semitism.
9. Israel, not Hamas, is responsible for the “humanitarian catastrophe” in Gaza. Goldstone was right when he charged that Israel was guilty of war crimes against civilians.
10. The only hope for peace is a single, bi-national state, eliminating the Jewish State of Israel.
