In 1948 the State of Israel was created. The Arab states immediately tried to destroy it. They are still trying.
In 1967, after fighting a war instigated by the neighboring Arab countries, Israel gained possession of the West Bank and Gaza. The Arabs refused Israel's offer to return these territories in exchange for peace. "No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel" (Khartoum Resolutions, 1967).
After the Oslo Accords in 1993 Israel agreed to Palestinian autonomy over the disputed territories. The Palestinians used their autonomy to build a network of bomb factories and an infrastructure for terrorism.
In 2000 Israel agreed to a proposal ceding 97% of the disputed territories plus shared control of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. The Palestinian response has been two years of unremitting and escalating terrorism.
In these two years Israel has suffered 13,890 terrorist attacks.
4,400 people have been injured, many permanently disabled, with nails, screws, and other pieces of shrapnel lodged in their bodies.
600 people have been murdered, including babies, teenagers, mothers, fathers, grandparents, all targeted intentionally.
And who does Europe want to boycott? ISRAEL!
Shimon Peres, give back your Nobel Prize!
Europe, be proud of your heritage!
