…(It takes just 1.5 minutes to read!)...maybe 2 minutes with my comments. . 
(from British TV interview with Netanyahu during retliation against Hamas's shelling of Israel,  from Colorado.  Compiled by a Christian University Professor. Comments from me in italics. Many of these facts I've heard before from other sources. 

It makes sense and it’s not slanted. Jewand non-Jew — it doesn’t matter.

1. Nationhood and Jerusalem – Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, Two thousand years before the rise of Islam. (Saul was 1st king in 11th century BCE, son of Kish of tribe of Benjamin.  Selected by prophet Samuel, prophet. Philistines and Ammonites were threatening.  King David was successor, also chosen by Samuel.  King Solomon was David's son.   Israel's king Jeroboam 933-912 BCE.  Larger than Judah, existed for 210 years, had 19 kings of 9 dynastics.  Ended with Samaria's capture by Sargon in 721BCE) (Kingdom of Judah, southerly of Israel and Judah, was divided from Israel in 933 BCE after death of Solomon) (Mohammad born 570CE in Mecca, age 40 had visitation from angel Gabriel, revelation from Allah, preached in 613, night journey in 620, 624 Battle of Badr, attack Jewish Qaynuqa tribe, exile them from Medina, etc., died June 8, 632CE.) 

2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel. (after 1967 Six Day War-Israel won)

3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years. (Joshua took over for Moses, went into the Promised Land.)

4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem , they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem . Mohammed never came to Jerusalem .
(Islam's Sura 17 , Al -Isra, and in the Hadith, tell of one night in 621 CE where Mohammed took a spiritual/physical ride on his steed, Buraq to "the farthest mosque", where he led other prophets in prayer, and also ascended to heaven on this magical horse and spoke to G-d who gave him instructions on how to pray. Muslims now claim the farthest mosque was the Jewish Temple Mount in Jerusalem where they  have built a Mosque over the Jewish Temple)

8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem . Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem .

9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: in 1948:  the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews . Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms. (Creation of Israel in 1948 caused Arab countries to kick out Jews).

11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel , a country no larger than the state of New Jersey ..

13. The Arab-Israeli Conflict: the Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

14. The PLO’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.(Israel left Gaza for the PLO and they turned it into a staging ground to shoot missiles into Southern Israel-Hamas took it over from PLO in fight) (Muslim Brotherhood Charter called for all Jews to be killed and destruction of Israel)

15. Under Jordanian rule, (up to 1967)  Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.  Sites now in danger-being taken over in Arab places, Jews denied access.-Blame UN's siding of accepting Palestine. 

16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel .

17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel .

18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians. (UN still silent when Israel is being bombarded by missiles from Gaza, Lebanon)

19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives (before 1967)

20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. (from 1948-1967)

Israel is the center of Bible Prophecy, and God Blesses those who Bless Israel – Genesis 12:3
