“It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria.”
– Ahmed Shuqeiri, former chairman of the PLO
And so the lunacy begins…again.
Who would you vote for if the elections were held today? (1)
As the Israeli/Palestinian ‘supposed’ peace talks get under way in Washington (and we all know Netanyahu is going along with this farce just to placate Obama because of Iran) all sides, including sadly some misguided Israelis, are missing one key factor…there is NO such thing as a Palestinian people, period.
And if there’s NO Palestinian people then there’s NO need for a Palestinian homeland…that simple fact is why NO peace accords will ever be reached.
The idea of a ‘Palestinian people’ with a language, culture, and nationality all their own, is the creation of former PLO head Yasser Arafat. Simply, he made them up to further the PLO and NOTHING more. His creation was embellished upon by the surrounding Arab nations and the media after the very humiliating Arab defeat to Israel in the ’67 war.
And what today’s so-called Palestinians and their sympathizers try to call Palestine NEVER existed as an autonomous entity because there has NEVER been a country known as Palestine governed by Palestinians.
Today’s so-called ‘Palestinian people’ are just regular run of the mill Arabs who speak Arabic, whose ‘so-called’ religion is islam, and whose culture is shared by the surrounding Arab nations, and NO matter how much they protest, there are NO genetic differences between Jordanians, Syrians, Lebanese, and the so-called Palestinians. And anyway most Arab nationalities… Jordanians, Syrians, Lebanese, etc…were invented by the British Colonial Office in the nineteen-twenties as more recognizable boundaries were being drawn after WW1. Before then all who lived in those newly formed countries were just known as ‘Arabs’.
These facts make the so-called Palestinians and their wanting a Palestinian homeland just another political and tactical tool in the Arab…actually in the muslim…arsenal used in their ultimate goal of trying to destroy the Jewish nation of Israel…the Jewish people…and NOTHING more.
And while the so-called Palestinians love to bloviate that they’re the region’s original inhabitants…inhabitants who they claim were driven out by the Jews when Israel became the Jewish homeland in 1948, they are actually NOTHING but descendants of the muslim conquerors who over the centuries drove out or subjugated the region’s original inhabitants…the Jews. And remember, what they love to call Palestine was actually part of the Ottoman Empire until the early 20th century, and that before Israeli won and occupied certain disputed areas of land in wars cast upon them by their Arab neighbors, Gaza was owned by Egypt and the West Bank was owned by Jordan, and there were NO so-called Palestinians then…just as there are NONE now.
And reality is in that today’s world the Arabs control 99.9% of all the Middle East lands…just look at a map and you’ll see the tiny sliver of land that is Israel…a sliver that takes up maybe one-tenth of one percent of the entire landmass. Yet even that tiny sliver is too much for the Arabs for they want it all, and NO matter how many land concessions the Israelis make it will never be enough for them for their goal remains to wipe the Jewish nation of Israel off the map.
To wipe the intruding Jews…the Zionists…off the map NO matter that there was NEVER in history a Palestinian state…NEVER a Palestinian kingdom or Palestinian kings…NEVER a Palestinian capital…nor a Palestinian language, culture, or anything even remotely comprising a Palestinian heritage.
NOTHING remotely that can be used as justification for a Palestinian state.
To wipe Israel off the map even though history shows there was an Israeli kingdom going back to the days of the Old Testament…there were Israeli kings in the kingdom of Israel…there was a capital in the kingdom of Israel, a capital forever known as Jerusalem…there was an Israel 2000 years before the self-proclaimed prophet mohammad dreamt that he’s flying on a “magical horse” from Mecca to Jerusalem…there was and is an Israeli language (Hebrew), a thriving Israeli culture, and an Israeli heritage going back to the days of Abraham.
And Israel isn’t just the name of a state…it’s first and for all time a name of a nation (Am Yisrael). Israel is the name of the father of the nation (Jacob) and Israelis are his descendants. The real meaning of the word ‘Israeli’ is someone who belongs to the nation of Israel and NOT only “a citizen of a state called Israel”. The word ‘Israeli’ (Yisraeli…Yisraelim in plural) is mentioned in the Torah and it’s used in Hebrew even today.
NO…there is NO justification for a Palestinian state in the land known as Israel for there is NO Palestinians to lay claim to such an entity…there NEVER has been and there NEVER will be.
And I think the so-called Palestinians would be better served if they gave up this misguided quest and instead tried to live by these wise words said by former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, a very wise woman indeed:
“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children…We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
