A killed symbol of the Palestinian intifada that was not killed

Many people may remember the beginning of the second Palestinian intifada, when footage of a Palestinian boy allegedly shot by Israeli soldiers circled the world. Muhammad Dura became a symbol of Palestinian " suffering ", intifada and the fight against so-called Israeli brutality, and aroused pro-Palestinian sympathy around the world. Thirteen years later, however, it turned out that the soldiers had not killed the boy, and the whole case was a hoax .

Al-Aqsa Intifada

Events in the Middle East from the Camp David summit in July 2000 to the February 2001 presidential election.

Amnesty International goes to terrorists

Amnesty International (AI) is known for its human rights activities. However, in connection with the Middle East events, only the State of Israel takes its toll and continues to campaign unprofessionally against Israel. The last time she became sadly known was the anti-Israel attacks during the war between Israel and Hamas in late 2012, which was named the "Pillar Defense".

Anti-Israel obsession

Holy Land. No other area is in such a furious conflict, no other state than Israel is so denied the right to life and existence. No other country faces such fierce and irreconcilable hatred from the left. Can this hatred be understood at all? Its core can be found in the UN and its various sub-organizations, universities and Muslim and communist countries.

Arafat, PLO, Israel and peace?

The article maps the main attempts and contradictions of the Middle East peace process until 1994. Later events are devoted to the article "Al-Aqsa Intifada".

Current US foreign policy in the Middle East peace process

1. US policy and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process Although the United States was involved in the Middle East before World War II, it did not begin to pursue a more active policy in the region until after the end of World War II. However, only since the 1960s can we speak of a "special relationship" between the United States and Israel, which continues to last until today. There are more answers to the question of where the roots of the important relationship between the two countries come from. East after 1945 can be explained on the one hand by the interest in oil, later also by anti-communism and the struggle for spheres of influence within the bipolarism characteristic of the Cold War.

Introduction When we say Middle East today, everyone is probably reminded of the revolution in Egypt, the uprising in Syria, or the fighting in Libya. The Middle East is currently a symbol of the unrest and revolts that could bring about changes in the policies of these Arab countries in the coming years. In connection with the crisis in the Arab world, there is also talk of the future of a small country that has been fighting for its existence since its inception - the future of the State of Israel.

2. Israel and the USA - a special relationship Relations between the United States and Israel have been exceptional since the establishment of the State of Israel. Since the 1960s, there has even been talk of a so-called special relationship, which exists between the two countries and has no analogues in the world. For decades, the two countries have maintained strong bilateral relations based on several factors - common strategic goals in the Middle East (eg Iran, Syria or Islamic extremism), sharing democratic values and historical roots dating back to the very founding of the State of Israel.

3. The Obama administration in the peace process The Obama administration in 2009 was faced with a difficult task during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Bush's attempts to end the disputes, presented by the Annapol Conference, were in ruins, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert would be forced to resign due to allegations of corruption, and a war broke out in Gaza just before Obama's inauguration.

Czechoslovakia and its military assistance to the state of Israel in the first period of its independent existence - Part 1

The proclamation of the state of Israel on May 14, 1948 was the result of World War II, in which Jews were the target of an unprecedented final liquidation by the Nazis. The desire of the Jews for their own country was not only the result of the Holocaust , it is primarily a spiritual matter of Judaism, related primarily to the exodus to which the Jews have been subjected several times in their long history. The Holocaust only accelerated it.

Czechoslovakia and its military assistance to the state of Israel in the first period of its independent existence - Part 10

The proclamation of an independent state of Israel has provoked a wave of sympathy in our society. This wave of sympathy spread across all groups of the population and this fact aroused a great response among war veterans from Svoboda's corps. Here it is necessary to realize that a large part of the units of Svoboda's army, mainly as long as it was a separate battalion and then a brigade, was made up of soldiers of Jewish origin.

Czechoslovakia and its military assistance to the state of Israel in the first period of its independent existence - Part 2

After the war, our country found out that the vast majority of its citizens of Jewish nationality were sent to extermination camps and liquidated by the occupation administration in the Protectorate and the special behavior of the political leadership of the Slovak state. From this consciousness arose a certain sense of need to at least correct this. This was one factor that became the breeding ground for aid to the new state.

The Israeli armed forces have always suffered from a lack of weapons. Returning to the first part, it is stated that at the end of 1947, Hagana had 900 quality rifles, 900 light machine guns and ammunition for three days of combat. Chaim Herzog even states in his book on the Arab-Israeli Wars that the machine guns were 700 light and 200 universal. I simplified it and added the machine guns. I think that at that time the category of weapons "universal machine gun" did not exist.
