...Is it actually possible that the United Nations, which is supposed to be an agent for world peace, actually recognizes the right to blow people up?

[According to Max Fisher of The New York Times:]

'But Ben-Gurion insisted that Israel give up the territories it had conquered. If it did not, he said, occupation would distort the young state, which had been founded to protect not just the Jewish people but their ideals of democracy and pluralism.'

In the print edition, this claim about Ben-Gurion wasn’t sourced, but the online version provided a link. Where did it lead? To an article by the late Arthur Hertzberg, once a prominent American rabbi, in the New York Review of Books back in 1987. There Hertzberg claimed to have heard Ben-Gurion, right after the 1967 victory, “insist that all of the territories that had been captured had to be given back, very quickly, for holding on to them would distort, and might ultimately destroy, the Jewish state.”

This week, Hertzberg’s report hit the front page of the New York Times, via Max Fisher. That’s too bad, because only three months ago I thoroughly debunked it at Mosaic Magazine. Although the Hertzberg story is often quoted, it struck me as dubious, knowing what I know about Ben-Gurion’s stated, public position in 1967. So I went to the trouble of asking the Ben-Gurion Archives in Sde Boker to help locate the transcript of the talk that Hertzberg attended. They did, and there’s no evidence whatsoever that Ben-Gurion said what Hertzberg claimed he heard...

Nothing gives a historian greater satisfaction than correcting a persistent error. And nothing is more frustrating than the resurrection of that error even after it’s been corrected. Especially if it suddenly surfaces on the front page of the New York Times. I explain at the link.

Hamas Has Invested USD $45 Million in Gaza Border Riots
JNi.Media via Jewish Press

Hamas has invested USD $45 million, over the past 100 days, in their riots along the Gaza-Israel border.

That $45 million went towards campaigning, protesters, logistics, compensation for the dead and wounded, arson kites and terror balloons, according to a report by Gal Berger of Kann News.

The end results of the Hamas investment were 678 fires, which burned down 2250 acres of Israeli forests, 1500 acres of Israeli agricultural land, and hundred of acres of open spaces in Israel, according to a YNet report.

In all likelihood, the money for the riots came from Iran.
