Israel’s late foreign minister, Abba Eban, once said: “If Algeria introduced a resolution at the UN declaring that the Earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions.”
On May 14, 1948, the day the State of Israel was born, while it was being attacked on every one of its borders by arab armies, David Ben-Gurion made the call for peace part of Israel’s Declaration of Independence: “We extend our hand to all neighboring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighborliness.”
That call for peace still stands, yet no arab could ever rise to meet that call.
Therefore, to accuse Israel, a country that continues to seek peace after 56 years of terror and war, of being racist, or of being an apartheid state engaged in ethnic cleansing, is akin to declaring that Israel has flattened the world.
