  • This is not the first time Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has released a video talking about selected issues
  • Palestinians building statues of people who mass murdered Israeli men, women and children is morally incorrect and a shame for humanity
  • Khaled Nazzal planned the murder of 22 Israeli school children and four grown-ups

September 4, 2017: Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a new video on twitter with a message that how Palestinian Children are taught the message to hate and kill by showing them how the fellow Palestinians honor the people who mass murdered Israeli’s.  It’s wrong to spread hatred in a child’s mind, to hail murderers as heroes.

This is not the first time Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has released a video talking straightforwardly about selected issues, he began this practice in 2016.

Palestinian Children are being brainwashed with hatred

Palestinians building statues of people who mass murdered Israeli men, women and children is morally incorrect and a shame for humanity. When a child would ask his or her mother about the statue, she will tell him about how this murderer mercilessly killed children many of whom were her child’s age. Netanyahu said, “I want you to close your eyes and imagine. I want you to imagine a seven-year old girl named Fatima. She is walking to school with her mother, and sees a statue, and asks ‘who is that?’ Her mother answers-that is Khaled Nazzal. He planned the murder of 22 Israeli school children and four grown-ups.” Palestinians are filling the minds of young children with poison by expecting them to respect murderers as they honored them by building their statue’s.

Netanyahu continued in a similar manner, speaking out against the various statues erected by the Palestinian Authority in honor of terrorists like:

  • Dalal Maghrabi- In 1978’s Coastal Road Massacre she murdered 38 Israelis on a bus
  • Abu Sakkar- he is responsible for 15 Israelis death

Netanyahu voiced a strong message, “Children should be taught to love and respect, not hate and kill.” He concludes the video with this concern, “There are so many champions of peace to dedicate statues to. Why do the Palestinians consistently choose to honor mass murderers?” This video raises some important questions. What is the need to honor those who murdered their fellow countrymen? Why can’t statue’s be dedicated to people who fought for peace instead?

We all know about the prolonged communal conflict between Israeli’s and Palestinians but Palestinians stooped down to a very low level by building statues of Khaled Nazzal, Dalal Maghrabi, and Abu Sakkar, they are stained with innocent Israeli blood. Not only is this despicable it also gives a wrong message of hatred to Palestinian Children.

  • An ancient game turning out to be a peace maker between Arabs and Jews in Jerusalem
  • Backgammon is a deeply rooted game in the Middle-East, which is uniting segregated neighbors
  • Backgammon is one of the oldest board games in the world

Jerusalem, September 11, 2017: No one had ever imagined the power of Backgammon. And about how this ancient game could act as a game changer in the Middle-East.

Backgammon is one of the world’s oldest board games that is currently being used to bring back peace in the Middle-East.

Jerusalem Double project is a series of Backgammon tournament that takes place in Jerusalem. It is an inter cultural initiative by Jerusalem Foundation to create more interaction between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Israel is the only Jewish state in the world which is located just at the east of Mediterranean Sea. Jew is a word used for those people who profess Judaism irrespective of the place they live in.

Palestinians consist of the Arab population that hails from the land which is now controlled by Israel. They want to establish a state by the name “Palestine” on all or part of the land, which is currently controlled by Israel.

“We wanted to bring Jews and Arabs together beyond the daily grind. We wanted to create a joint cultural event in which everyone can share and we wanted to create cross over between neighborhoods that for generations have been completely segregated”, believes Zaki Djemal from Jerusalem Foundation.

Jerusalem Double chose Backgammon as a medium to break the walls between the Jews and Arabs because Backgammon is deeply rooted in the Middle-east. It is highly accessible and inclusive.

Initially, the project Jerusalem Double had faced a lot of resistance from both the communities. But, they went against the wind and left no stone unturned to make this project work. As a result, the Backgammon proved to be a catalyst towards a positive change.

In 2106, when the first Backgammon championship had happened, only 150 people showed up. But this time, 250 people participated in the tournament and competed for a cash prize of 6,000 USD.

Play can create empathy between strangers and apparent enemies and it can give us the confidence that we need to trust in each other and in the world we have been slighted, even after we have experienced pain, suffering, and fear said Zaik Djemal.

Backgammon is an outstanding initiative towards a peaceful morning in the Middle-East.

On the USA’s East Coast, Indians and Israelis already dominate the diamond business.

“If the people from India and Israel dominate the start-up space in Silicon Valley, why can’t they meet more often in New Delhi or Tel Aviv? I think start-ups provide great opportunities for people of both the countries who share common goals and aspirations,” he added.
