Israel-Lebanon conflict: international reactions
Point of view
I can see the apparent similarity in looking at different conflicts in various regions. Too many people in democratic societies have wrong feeling that they always have to support "young nations" in their efforts for independence and protest against "imperialists" countries. Often this view is not based on any facts, but is nothing else than misunderstood notion of "liberal" or "democratic" values.


Israel Support Rally. Washington, DC, 15 April 2002

The biggest in American history, Israel Support Rally was held in downtown Washington, DC on April 15. On the evening of the same day a TV commentator said that about 200,000 people attended the rally. A little bit later it was stated that about 100,000 people were there. Later on The Washington Post, known by the same bias against Israel, told us in a tiny article devoted to the Rally about "many tens of thousands of people". I would like you to see how many of us were there, how different we were, and how strong we showed our support for Israel in her just war against Arab terrorists!

Israel-Arab conflict: historical aspects. (5/03/2002)

After I uploaded some of my photographs of the Israel Support Rally on a Russian photographers' sight, a discussion arose under one of my pictures. I asked my virtual friend Yuriy Elkin to help me defend my point of view. As a result there was an excellent explanation of the current and historical aspects of the conflict between Israel and Arabs. Here is an excerpt of that discussion as well as several document links provided by Yuriy.

Facts and documents

The Involvement of Arafat, PA Senior Officials and Apparatuses in Terrorism against Israel, Corruption and Crime.
Prepared by a team headed by Dani Naveh, Israeli Minister of Parliamentary Affairs.

This report brings some very grave facts to your attention. Israel's military operation "Defensive Shield" has obtained clear-cut hard evidence that the Palestinian Authority under Yasser Arafat is a supporting encouraging and actively operating body of terror. Arafat and his close aides are directly responsible for the cold-blooded murder of Israeli citizens.
