To appreciate the widespread aggression against Israel, it is vital that you know accurate history, and not accept mainstream media or other opinions...
Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) is based on the adoption of lies as truths. It is only due to the repeated claims of Israel's enemies, that BDS has taken root and spread. This is fueled on college campuses by the left-wing, liberal minds of teachers and students that have adopted what's popular instead of truth, and have become biased against Israel. Many students are shocked when they learn that these lies are baseless myths. Here are a few...
Palestinian Lies: Exposed
Palestinians claim Israel as theirs. Yet, history teaches that they are not "Palestinians," but rather, simple Arabs. Jews come from Judea, (Israel). Palestinians do not. There is no language known as Palestinian, or any Palestinian culture distinct from that of all the Arabs in the area. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. "Palestinians" are Arabs indistinguishable from Arabs throughout the Middle East. Yassir Arafat was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1929. In 1967, Palestinian leaders claimed two contradictory lineages from ancient peoples that inhabited in the Land of Israel: the Canaanites and the Philistines. This overnight fabrication of a "Palestinian" people with no prior history, plus the contradictory claims of lineage expose Palestinians as Arabs seeking to rewrite history. In contrast, Jews have evidence and historical claim to Israel...
In numerous places, the Bible discusses God's promise of Israel to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and the Twelve Tribes of Israel (Jacob). Palestinians have no history regarding Israel. Mark Twain took a tour of Palestine in 1867. This is how he described that land. We are talking about Israel now. He said:
"A desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given over wholly to weeds. A silent, mournful expanse. We never saw a human being on the whole route. There was hardly a tree or a shrub anywhere. Even the olive and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country."

Archaeologists continue to unearth Israeli artifacts dating centuries back, all bearing Hebrew inscriptions and Biblical images like Menoras. Unsurprisingly, no findings refer to Palestinians or are written in a language other than Hebrew.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are 2000 years old. They are written in Hebrew and were discovered in a series of caves near the Dead Sea in the West Bank (of the Jordan River) between 1946 and 1956 by Bedouin shepherds and a team of archaeologists.
Thus, the claim that Jews are "occupying" Palestinian land are uncovered as lies.
