Exposing the narrative
By Tabitha Korol

Vijay Prashad's propagandist diatribe in the Washington Post (A Caution to Israel, Jan. 26) contained abundant inaccuracies, with the obvious intent to disparage Israel and uphold the jihadist narrative. Under international law, Israel is not an occupier of Judea and Samaria. Jordan was never sovereign over the area after winning its 1948 aggressive war against Israel or after losing its 1967 aggressive war against Israel. However, because Arabs refused the partition, and could not win land militarily, they created a narrative to gain worldwide sympathy. It is well known that Arabs learned that Jews regained Israel and sympathy after WW II, and took on the mantle of victimhood for themselves. We are now all endangered by these pretenders.

Palestinians have the same academic freedoms as Jewish and Christian citizens in Israel, a democracy. It is the Islamic countries that deny basic human rights not only to Jews and Christians, but to their own women and children. If the cowardly world stood up against the Islamic-fascist bigotry, hate, and terrorism today, we might be able to retrieve the freedoms and peace we are all losing for tomorrow.
