Hello Genny-Raskin,

In reply to your inquiry, problems arose with founding the group Israeli-History. I sought to found it and then transfer the position of founder to a person from Israel or of Israeli descent. This is what I did with Iraqi-History and the group is now administered largely by Iraqis and appears to be doing okay. I did this with Israeli-History but the new founder decided to close the group with no warning or reason, I still do not know exactly why.

I think the problem was the scope of the group, and my attempt to delicately handle the highly controversial Israeli-Palestinian conflict in light of developments in international law on the matter at the United Nations.

If it could be re-founded that would be great, the history of Israel and people of heritage from Israel is very important to world history. I would like to seek out more support from Israeli DeviantArtists prior to creating the group, unlike last time. If you could help with that, that would be most helpful and appreciated.

Thank you for replying.
I understand.

When you mix history with recent politics, especially the ones that the UN agitate you might have a problem there...
I mean, their politics mostly hostile towards Israel as a country and it's people. Israelis that support our freedom and our current border lines would not support such connection.
To be more precise is, the fact that UN opens a lot of ridiculous inquiries on Israel regarding "violation of human rights" and "crimes against humanity", sometimes even one-sided, most of which have only vague connection to reality or truth, and based on prejudice, antisemitism, general hate and jealousy widely spread by our neighbors. It's really hard to believe that any Israeli (at least of right wing, that supports Israel as is), would support the UN...
Especially when, at the same time, there are little to no similar condemnations and accusations of very famous and cruel terrorist organizations (Hamas, Hezbolah, Isil, Phatah, Gihad Islamic Palestinic, Muslim Brothers and etc). This is undeniable, and clear as a day.
If it was of myself, I'd rather have no connection to the UN, at the current state as it is, I deem them not only useless at the regulation of so called "conflict" the "Palestinians" have with Israel, but mostly harmful, that cause it's escalation by legitimating their violence and hate, and deligitimating the right of Israel to protect itself against it.

If I was to form a group that discusses Israeli History, I'd try to put politics aside, and try to lay only facts on the table. Flattering or not. Every country has its pros and cons, allays and enemies.
More than that, centralizing the discussion only on the conflict, which is only about 120 years old, compared to the Jewish history and heritage is needless, it was already overdone by many, and it's not interesting. Also minimizing the discussion to the UN scope, is even more narrow - as it ignores completely the times and the origins of the conflict in the region, if you discuss it from the UN resolution of 1947, that gave approval for the state of Israel to come to life as a country.

Israeli history is vast. It goes as far as 4000 years ago, maybe even more (I'm no huge expert, although I know some of it). Discussing only the 70 past years in the face of our political situation is un-nessesary, boring and potentially harmful as it can ignite more false accusations and more hate, which is already present world wide, including in DA. And which I have to fight occasionally myself, while I have no interest in that, I am here for the art...

If you'd make a group, that really want's to discuss the history of the Jewish people, Zionists, Israelites, Judeans, Israelis, I'd support that cause, as long as it would embrace the whole scope of it; Historical events, scholars, literature, languages, philosophy, innovations, diaspora, names, professions, history of the people outside Israel, culture, customs, religion, heritage, geography, anthropology, sociology and politics - including all time, holocaust, banishment from Arab countries, the Ethiopian diaspora, immigration, population, education, army, state faculties and government, hospitals, universities, philanthropy - anything you might think of for any kind of people - this is something I would support. As there is much more to Israel than this blasted conflict, blown out of it's proportions by the world press, which ignores way much more of human suffering on vastly larger scopes all around the world, largely caused by the "Arab spring" and other issues, like famine and genocide in African countries and so on.

I hope you are not offended, but this is my position regarding this given issue.
With all due respect.

Genny (I am Israeli, Jew and a Zionist.)

I am fine with the scope that you have defined and all the topics you mentioned would be accepted. A Israeli-History group would be immensely valuable and I intend to re-found the group, set up the basic galleries, and transfer the position of founder to you if you would accept.

To be honest my attempt at neutrality on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict issue has in fact shown to me that there really is no Palestinian identity or history beyond the Arab-Israeli conflict and thus no real way to really have a neutral history group for the Palestinians. Before the 1960s people who later identified as "Palestinians" just identified as Arabs who happened to live in the region.
Genny-Raskin Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2015  Student General Artist
Now that you put it that way, it becomes clearer.
I approve of your cause.

I agree to the core with your understanding regarding the "Palestinian" issue. That is why I said, what I said. And as these so called "Palestinians" emerged only in the past few decades, to focus on them would mean, that we disregard everything that took place before they came to be, and it's the majority of our history. These people are just a tiny part of it.

I am not sure I have the time needed, or the knowledge to cover this scope of Jewish and Israeli culture.
For sure not alone, as I am already admin of 2 groups, and I am really struggling to maintain them active.

Also I can easily foresee haters to flood this group and claim ridiculous claims like they always do, lying terrible lies and hurting members...
I don't know if I have the guts needed to cope with this kind of violence.
After all, I came to DA for the arts, and not to fight vain fights against evil and ignorant people, who came here just to spread their hate...
