IDC Herzliya Campus A Day on Campus

To mark IDC Herzliya’s 20th anniversary, we spent a day following Prof. Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president, and Jonathan Davis, VP for External Relations, around its delightful campus.



Karl Vick’s Revisionist History of Oslo

Karl Vick is clearly unaware that Rabin never advocated a Palestinian Arab state. He never advocated dividing Jerusalem.
Oslo handshake

Most outrageously, to Vick, the tragedy of the second intifada wasn’t that Arabs were slaughtering Jews by the hundreds – it was that their deaths killed the Israeli peace camp.

Vick, of course, doesn’t mention that prime minister Olmert went way beyond the Israeli offer in 2000, showing that even with so many murdered killed during the PLO’s and Hamas’ terror spree, Israel still wanted peace. That narrative doesn’t make it into the mainstream media which is wedded to the lie that Jews are the only people responsible for setbacks to peace.

Then Vick just makes things up:

Two decades after the White House signing, Palestinians have less income, less land and much less freedom than they did in 1993.

The implication is that this is all Israel’s fault. They may have less income and less freedom – but that is because of the terrorism that forced Israel to separate Arabs from Jews. Does Vick think that an international border between Israel and “Palestine” would allow workers to freely enter Israel?

But how can Vick say they have “less land”? There was no Palestinian Arab autonomy before Oslo, but now 100% of Gazans and about 97% of West Bank Palestinian Arabs live under Arab rule, with Arab security forces, Arab infrastructure and in what are virtually two separate Arab states, one of which is recognized by most of the world’s nations.

Vick’s bias is once again obvious. Yet these lies are the accepted conventional wisdom, and Time doesn’t even bother to fact check it.

Accompanying the story is a photo essay that is even more biased than this piece, if that is possible. It portrays Arabs as eternal victims does not show a single Jew living in Judea and Samaria who is not represented as an aggressive interloper on Arab and Muslim land. Muslims work fields or are victims of Jewish terror; Jews are not shown as normal human beings.
