CAMERA Featured Letter-Writer

Recently, the New Jersey Jewish News featured a flattering portrayal of Breaking the Silence, an NGO with a history of publishing unreliable information attempting to portray the IDF in a negative light. CAMERA Letter-Writer Toby Block wrote to the NJJN:

Dear Editor:

The picture painted by Breaking the Silence defames the Israel Defense Forces while doing nothing to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people. The group doesn’t report incidents of alleged abuse to Israeli military authorities who, therefore, can’t correct problems and punish wrongdoers. In addition, the group promotes an inaccurate Palestinian narrative.

The Arabs of Palestine were denied their first-ever chance at sovereignty when Arab nations went to war to prevent Israel’s rebirth. Jordan illegally held the currently-disputed land for nineteen years, ethnically cleansing it of its indigenous Jewish population but never making a move to establish a Palestinian state. Following Israel’s liberation of the land (while defending her people from intended genocide), Palestinian leaders flatly rejected Israeli proposals for the creation of a Palestinian state. Those who want to end “the occupation�? should be pressuring the Palestinian leadership to negotiate with Israel and begin preparing their people to live in their new state, peaceably, beside the nation-state of the Jews.
