Psalms 83:1-8: "Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah." (All these Arab and Edomite tribes are now the Islamic nations surrounding Israel today.)
Friend, either you don't know your history, or you're a propagandist. Allow me to educate you a bit:
The British won God's Covenant Land, Israel, from the Islamic Caliphate, the Ottoman Empire, who were aligned with Germany in WW I. 
At one time this Caliphate had even conquered Spain (661-750 AD). The Barbary states of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Tripoli were part of this Caliphate in the early days of our Great Nation (late 1700's, early 1800's) They forced Thomas Jefferson to study the Koran, because they were exacting tribute, murdering and enslaving American citizens. He needed to know their beliefs in order to know his enemy and wage war with them.
The opening line of the Marines’ Hymn, “From the Halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli,” commemorates not only the Mexican War of 1846–1848, but also the war with Tripoli when Marines took part in the capture of Derna on April 27, 1805.
The Muslim Koran calls both Jews and Christians, "the people of the book," a title that I proudly accept, because the 66 books of the Bible make up the only perfect and complete Word of God to man which had a lot to do with the founding of America and our Constitution.
"In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the Dey of Algiers' ambassador to Britain. ... During the meeting Jefferson and Adams asked the Dey's ambassador why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts. In a later meeting with the American Congress, the two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam 'was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.'" 
Shortly after Jefferson's inauguration as president in 1801, he deployed American Marines and America's best warships to the Muslim Barbary Coast to defend American interests in the Mediterranean, and informed Congress. Jefferson said that America was going to spend "millions for defense but not one cent for tribute." He was obliged to send the state sponsored Muslim pirates to Islamic Paradise, and American interests in the Mediterranean were defend.
So America's first war after Independence was due to unprovoked attacks by Islamic terrorists. A war that America won, I might add.
Fast forward a little over an hundred years to WW I (1914-1918): Austria-Hungary, Germany, the Ottoman Empire, and others were aligned against the British Empire, France, the Russian Empire, and others. On the morning of December 10, 1917 precisely as prophesied in Isaiah 31:5, "As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it," scores of the British General Allenby's new biplanes flew over the Ottoman troops occupying Jerusalem. The Islamic Ottoman troops surrendered the city without firing a single shot. Jerusalem was defended, delivered and preserved. (It is interesting that December 10, 1917 was the Biblical holiday of Hanukkah which has to do with the Temple in Jerusalem. In order to rebuild the Temple, Israel would need to be back in the Land.) Then General Allenby took Megiddo [the place Armageddon is named after] from the Ottomans in September, 1918.
All this paved the way for the implementation of The Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917. The Balfour Declaration was the formal statement of policy by the British Government stating that "His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object ..."
"In 1937, 11 years before the rebirth of Israel, Saudi Arabia's King Ibn Saud said that Muslim hatred of Jews is based on the Koran '... for a Moslem to kill a Jew ... ensures him an immediate entry into Heaven.''' 
When Israel finally declared Independence on May 14, 1948 to take possession of the scanty piece of land promised them 30 years prior by England the very next day 5 Islamic nations, supported by others, attacked them. Wars and rumors of wars have been part of Israel's national scene since her beginning in 1948. She has basically been at a state of war ever since her reestablishment. Tiny Israel has fought 4 major wars with the Arabs:
1) The War of Independence (May 1948 to February 1949):
“On May 15, 1948, Israel was invaded by Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon ... pitt[ing] some 45 million Arabs against 64,000 Jews, and the Arab soldiers out numbered the Jews forty to one in population; in equipment, 1,000 to one; and in area 5000 to one. ... Against this massive and well-armed invaston, Israel had but 10,000 rifles ... and 3,600 sub-machine guns. ... [It was] the different attitudes of the opposing armies ... [that] determined the outcome. To the Arabs the name of the game was expansion and revenge; to the desperate Jews it was sheer survival ... On February 24, 1949, the War of Independence ended. The tiny nation not only survived, but found itself strengthened. However, a costly price was attached to the victory: the lives of 6,000 Jews, approximately 10% of the total population! ... As a result of her War of Independence, Israel gained 23% more territory ...” [Dr. H. L. Wellmington, Signs of the Times, pp. 134-137]
2) The Sinai War of 1956:
"Egypt had maintained its state of belligerency with Israel after the armistice agreement was signed. The first manifestation of this was the closing of the Suez Canal to Israeli shipping. On August 9, 1949, the UN Mixed Armistice Commission upheld Israel's complaint that Egypt was illegally blocking the canal. ... On September 1, 1951, the Security Council ordered Egypt to open the Canal to Israeli shipping. Egypt refused to comply. The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Muhammad Salah al-Din, said early in 1954 that: 'The Arab people will not be embarrassed to declare: We shall not be satisfied except by the final obliteration of Israel from the map of the Middle East.' In 1955, Egyptian President ... Nasser began to import arms from the Soviet Bloc to build his arsenal for the confrontation with Israel. In the short-term, however, he employed a new tactic to prosecute Egypt's war with Israel. He announced it on August 31, 1955: 'Egypt has decided to dispatch her heroes, the disciples of Pharaoh and the sons of Islam and they will cleanse the land of Palestine. ... There will be no peace on Israel's border because we demand vengeance, and vengeance is Israel's death.' These 'heroes' were Arab terrorists, or fedayeen, trained and equipped by Egyptian Intelligence to engage in hostile action on the border, and to infiltrate Israel to commit acts of sabotage and murder. ... The terrorist attacks violated the armistice agreement provision that prohibited the initiation of hostilities by paramilitary forces; nevertheless, it was Israel that was condemned by the UN Security Council for its counterattacks. During the six years during which this belligerency ... [there were] 1,339 cases of armed clashes with Egyptian armed forces, 435 cases of incursion from Egyptian controlled territory, 172 cases of sabotage perpetrated by Egyptian military units and fedayeen in Israel. As a result of these actions of Egyptian hostility within Israel, 364 Israelis were wounded and 101 killed. In 1956 alone, as a result of this aspect of Egyptian aggression, 28 Israelis were killed and 127 wounded. The escalation continued with the Egyptian blockade of Israel's shipping lane in the Straits of Tiran, and Nasser's nationalization of the Suez Canal in July 1956. On October 14, Nasser made clear his intent: ' I am not solely fighting against Israel itself. My task is to deliver the Arab world from destruction through Israel's intrigue, which has its roots abroad. Our hatred is very strong. There is no sense in talking about peace with Israel. There is not even the smallest place for negotiations.' Less than two weeks later, on October 25, Egypt signed a tripartite agreement with Syria and Jordan placing Nasser in command of all three armies. The blockade of the Suez Canal and Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli shipping, combined with the increased fedayeen attacks and the bellicosity of Arab statements, prompted Israel, with the backing of Britain and France, to attack Egypt on October 29, 1956. ... Israeli forces captur[ed] the Gaza Strip, much of the Sinai and Sharm al-Sheikh. [The 1956 War] The quick and forceful Israeli military took the Sinai in one week during the 1956 War. They killed between 2,000 and 3000, took about 5,600 prisoners, and captured vast amounts of Russian built equipment. Israeli losses were between 170 and 230 dead, 600 wounded, and 4 taken prisoner.
3) The Six-Day War of June, 1967:
Leading up to the Six Day War while Egyptian President Nasser continued to make speeches threatening war, Arab terrorist attacks grew more frequent. In 1965, 35 raids were conducted against Israel. In 1966, the number increased to 41. In just the first four months of 1967, 37 attacks were launched. [The 1967 Six-Day War] On May 30, 1967, Nasser announced, "The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel to face the challenge, while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan, and the whole Arab nation. This act will astound he world. Today they will know that the Arabs are arranged for battle. The critical hour has arrived. We have reached the stage of serious action and not declarations." [Six Days War: Crucial Quotes] "Nasser then closed the crucial Israeli port of Eilat on the Gulf of Aqaba. The war was on … On June 5 Israeli jets struck a death blow to the Egyptian air force…Fierce battles took place in the Golan Heights and in Jerusalem. Russia warned the world to keep hands off, expecting a quick Arab victory. But the ... Jews would not be destroyed ... Within six days the Arab forces were in retreat. Israeli soldiers had captured the Sinai [from Egypt] and the Golan Heights [from Syria], Russia was demanding peace in the Middle East. It is significant that Israel had captured all of Jerusalem [from Jordan]. All of this ancient and beloved city was n Jewish hands for the first time since 70 A.D." [Four Clear Signs of The End of The Age] Israel ... increased her territory from 8,000 square miles to 26,500. This had cost her 679 killed and 2,563 wounded." [Wellmington, p. 140]
4) The Yom Kippur War of October, 1973:
"On October 6, 1973 ... Israel was attacked simultaneously by Egypt in the south and Syria in the north. Most of the Jews had been fasting ... for [Yom Kippur] was the most sacred time of their entire year ... [It was] the largest conventional war, in terms of armored forces, since the end of World War II in 1945. Some 5,000 tanks [3,000 Arab versus 2,000 Israeli] ... were employed ... Over 1,000,000 men [fought], of which 838,000 were Arabs, pitted against 275,000 Jews ... The Israeli forces experienced some initial setbacks from the Russian-equiped army of Egypt ... However, in the north, Israel began to drive toward Damascus. Soon Israeli troops were able to invade Egypt also. When the United Nations finally was able to enforce a cease-fire, the Israeli troops were within 20 miles of Damascus [in Syria and] ... occupied territory on the west bank of the Suez Canal [in Egypt]. On October 25, 1973, the fourth and by far biggest Middle East war came to and end. Arab casualties exceeded 15,000. Israeli losses were over 4.000." [Wellmington, pp. 140-142]
Israel continues to come under unprovoked and indiscriminate missile attacks into Israeli towns by Hamas (which was created by the Muslim Brotherhood) and Hezbollah in Lebanon; the suicide bombers, and lying propagandists continue etc., etc.
