From the same article:Magnificient. And the Israeli/Jewish PR is close to clinical death.The statement called on Arab and international media to "engage in an organised effort to gather evidence of Israeli war crimes in order to put Israeli generals, officers and settlers on trial before international courts."
The planned media campaign will denounce the fence being built by Israel to isolate Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank, and other "racist measures" and "collective punishment" against the Palestinians, the statement said.
Arab Jews better off under Islamic rule
Abu Dhabi |By A Staff Reporter | 20-06-2002
So what do the wise men really want to say?A two-day symposium in the capital has concluded that Arab Jews have enjoyed greater fundamental rights and freedom under Arab Islamic rule than under Israeli Zionist regimes.
They further discussed the situation of the Arab Jews currently living in Israel, and their attitudes towards the Arab-Israeli conflict, in comparison with their situation in the Arab countries throughout the history of the Arab Islamic civilisation, which rendered an exemplary model of tolerance, understanding, peaceful living, religious and sectarian freedom, in addition to preservation of the rights to privacy.
Responding to a question on whether the Islamic rhetoric was the major cause of isolating the Jews and creating a feeling of antagonism against them, Dr Al Refaie' said that the Quranic rhetoric was addressed to the Rabbis and Talmud scriptwriters and not to the Jewish laymen.
He added that history bears witness to the tolerance of Muslims towards the Jews. Asked if Arab rulers were behind the migration of the Jews, he said that the migration of Arab Jews took place at a time when Arab countries were under occupation.
Regarding the nature of hatred harboured by Jews towards the Arab world, he said that Zionism has created some history for the Jews, convincing them that they have always been persecuted and oppressed which, in turn, generated the feeling of hatred in Jews for all other nations.
As for the role of the Arab Jews in promoting foreign occupation, he pointed out that the Jews used to translate the Arab heritage into Hebrew deleting any reference to the Holy Quran and the traditions and life of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). They also were cooperative with the occupation forces as they used to provide them with all kinds of supplies, he added.
