Yasmin Alibhai-Brown's Israel: A World of Hyperbole, Lies and Half-Truths - by Simon Plosker

...Alibhai-Brown concludes by calling on UK parliamentarians to “support peaceful Palestinian man, women and children who have so long been denied rights, livelihoods and dignity. Sometimes goodwill is the best present.” Goodwill is certainly the last thing that Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is capable of when it comes to Israel.

British commentator Yasmin Alibhai-Brown has a reputation for publishing anti-Israel screeds dating back over many years. So it isn’t unexpected to find the usual litany of lies, half-truths and hatred in her latest piece that appears in i News.

According to Alibhai-Brown:

Over the centuries, various holy land sites have been sacred to all three Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Jewish believers believe these were promised to them by Abraham, and for Muslims, Jerusalem is where Prophet Mohammed was sent glorious dreams and despatches from Allah. For centuries the three faiths were able to coexist in peace. Not any longer.

Why is the Jewish claim to the land a religious ‘belief’ while Islamic links to the holy land are referred to as factual?

In any case, Jewish links to the region in a purely religious context ignores (most likely deliberately) 3,500 years of Jewish nationhood that goes far beyond Judaism as just a religion.

And what history books has Alibhai-Brown been reading? Apparently none if she believes that “the three faiths were able to coexist in peace” for centuries, ignoring the fact that she is talking about one of the most fought-over pieces of real estate in the world.
