Jewish Ad Campaign Shows Muslim Nations Denying Existence of Israel

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
A Jewish organization has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars for newspaper ads that show maps produced in Muslim countries that don't show the nation of Israel. The ads, which have appeared in major newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and USA Today, were bankrolled by the New York-based American Jewish Committee. Executive director, David Harris, says his group wanted to make people aware of what Middle Eastern schoolchildren are being taught. "The maps in the ads include three from schoolbooks, which means that future generations of Palestinians, Saudis, and Syrians, among others, are being taught that Israel does not exist and, therefore, does not have a right to exist," Harris explains. "Even though the United Nations endorsed Israel's creation, [Muslim nations have] never accepted it in 1947, they still have not come to terms with it, and many still openly call for Israel's elimination." Harris says he wonders just how a nation can make peace with other nations that do not even recognize its very right to exist. (From Agape Press)

We cannot agree with some of the actions of Israel towards the Palestinians, but Israel does have a right to exist.
