This past weekend in New York City, thousands of protesters gathered in Times Square. But the number of protesters wasn’t the headline. Rather it was the diversity of the crowd that was surprising. One sign indicative of the mood read, “Dear Democratic Party, you lost...
Biden, the West, and the ‘Palestinian People’ Delusion
In today’s language, any attempt to explain the Arab-Israeli conflict in terms other than “Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land” and or the “denial of Palestinian nationalist aspiration” is often regarded as a declaration that the earth is flat and is the center of the universe.
But, what if this view is wrong?
What if the Jewish State – that is allegedly the root of all evil in the Middle East – was, instead, actually the victim?
What if Zionism is not colonialism but rather an ancient people’s return to their native, ancestral and covenantal lands?
What if, in reality, it is Arab and Islamic Imperialism and Colonialism, which contests a Jewish state on even 1/500th of the area of lands conquered by the Arabs in the 7th century?
In 1947, the United Nations voted UN Resolution 181 to establish TWO STATES – one Arab and one Jewish – west of the Jordan river on the remaining 24% of the portion of land under the British Mandate Palestine originally allocated for a Jewish State by the international community after WWI.
In spite of this enormous reduction of their original portion, the Jews accepted the resolution. 80 years ago, there was on the table a TWO STATES solution. This is NOT a new idea as we are relentlessly being deceived into believing, by the extremely well oiled and financed Arab propaganda machine, with the help of the wilfully and downright criminally negligent, Western news media, Academia, Clergy, and Politicians.
In 1948, the newly reborn State of Israel was invaded by FIVE Arab armies from Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and the Arab Legion of Jordan, whose crystal clear and publicly declared mission, was the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its citizens; hundreds of thousands of whom were Holocaust survivors.
The Jews were literally fighting for their very existence and were able to defeat all the Arab armies, who were forced to sue for a ceasefire.
Before 1964, not a single Arab ever called himself a Palestinian. Even the UN declared them as ‘Arab refugees from Palestine’ NOT ‘Palestinian refugees.’
I have to point out a few simple but important details that invariably and very conveniently escape the intellect and morality of the Arabs, their supporters, and their Western apologists:
1 Before the war against the establishment of the State of Israel, there were no Arab refugees.
2 The Arab refugees were the product of a war of aggression by the surrounding Arab states as well as by the Arabs of Palestine against not only the Charter of the UN but also in defiance of its resolution creating a TWO STATES solution to the Arab-Jewish dispute.
3 While the Arab refugees of allegedly 700,000 were the result of Arab aggression, the Jewish refugees from Arab and Muslim lands – numbering over 950,000 – were the product of anti-Jewish, Nazi-style rules and regulations, perpetrated against these ancient communities whose territories were occupied by the conquering Arab armies almost 1300-1400 years earlier.
4 For the last 80 years, humanity only heard about the plight of the Arab refugees but never about the Jewish or any of the other 40,000,000 worldwide refugees for whom not a dime was given to help any of them.
5 There are no UN resolutions demanding any compensation for the Jewish refugees from Arab and Muslim lands, but only for the Arabs.
6 There are no UN ‘right of return’ resolutions for the Jewish refugees, but only for the Arabs.
7 While the Jewish refugees were absorbed by Israel; the Arab refugees were still used as pawns to keep the Arab leaders in power under the pretext that they are fighting for their cause.
8 While the Arab refugees have been helped financially by the Western governments and by some of the Arab states with billions of aid dollars, NOT a dime was raised for the Jewish refugees from Arab and Muslim lands.
9 While the Arab refugees escaped to the neighboring Arab states only a few miles in any direction – speaking the same language, having the same beliefs and traditions – the Jewish refugees, on the other hand, had to travel in many cases, hundreds and thousands of miles, speaking 70 languages and dialects with incredibly different traditions.
10 While the Jews of Israel from 70 different countries around the world created a thriving and vibrant free, all-inclusive democracy, we see the Arabs of Palestine at war with each other as well as with their host Arabs.
11 If it were true that the Jews were using ethnic cleansing against the Arabs, then how can anyone explain the FACT that there are now almost two million Arab citizens in Israel from an original 150,000, while one cannot count more than 10,000 Jews among 450 million Arabs in 22 states?
So, who actually achieved the Ethnic Cleansing?
12 Why is Biden’s State Department supplying the ‘Palestinians’ and UNRWA with hundreds of millions of dollars when they know very well that most of this money will be pilfered by the corrupt Arab leaders, will finance terror tunnels, will finance rockets and terrorism, and will also finance the most venomous anti-Jewish education system in the world?
What should Israel think of such aiding and abetting her virulent enemies? Will not these reprobate actions actually increase the probability of conflict and not reduce it?
80 years have been wasted to be told by Biden and the European Union members, that all that the Arabs want, is a Two States solution, while totally and wilfully ignoring the Arab charters asserting the extermination of Israel. The levels of hypocrisy, duplicity, and mendacity displayed by the US State Department and the media are so obscene, they beggar belief and morality.
Most of the Peoples’ that we know of, such as the Sumerians, Israelites, Babylonians, Assyrians, Greeks, Persians, Romans, Egyptians, Aztecs, Chinese, Indians, Europeans, etc., have left their mark on history with their writings and their monuments. The Palestinian people obviously – if they ever existed – should also have left their mark.
Let me now address the obscene fallacy that many politicians and others repeatedly regurgitate about the mythical Palestinian People:
If our Academics, Historians, Politicians, Clerics, and others are so sure that ‘Palestine and its people, go back throughout most of recorded history, one would expect them to be able to answer a few basic questions about them.
Can anyone name at least three of their kings/leaders?
When was a state called Palestine founded, and by whom?
What manuscripts have they left?
What monuments attest to their existence?
What were its borders?
What was the name of its capital?
What currency did they use?
Where can one find any records wherein the name of the country of Palestine and its people are mentioned?
If the people arbitrarily and mistakenly calling themselves ‘Palestinians’ are anything but generic migrants collected from all over the Arab and Muslim world; if they really have a genuine ethnic identity that gives them the right to self-determination, why did they not declare their independence between the years 1948 till 1967?
After all, during this long period of 19 years, there were no Israelis in the West Bank or Gaza; there were no settlements, and there was no so-called Jewish occupation.
Why did these ‘Palestinians’ not declare their independence after 1948 but allowed themselves to be occupied, suppressed and oppressed, by the Jordanians in the West Bank and the Egyptians in Gaza?
Why did the Politicians, Media, Clergy, and Academia in the USA and Europe not once mention that occupation and oppression during all these 19 years?
Why did the UN not have a single resolution about it during 19 years of occupation?
Why were these leaders deafeningly silent about the RIGHTS of the Palestinian People?
In fact, where were the so-called Palestinian People during these 19 years?
Why, during these 19 years – when they had the golden opportunity to establish the Palestinian state – did the Arab world choose not to do so?
Why did this allegedly ‘proud and ancient people’ wait until – after the Arabs suffered their ignominious and devastating defeat in the Six Days War at the hands of Israel – all of a sudden and miraculously, find their alleged peoplehood and nationhood?
The truth should be obvious to anyone who wants to know it: Arab countries have never abandoned their dream of destroying Israel; they still cherish and declare it every day.
In reality, the Arab-Israeli conflict has absolutely nothing to do with territory or even politics since the Arabs control about 4,000,000 Sq Miles against Israel’s 8,000. This conflict is purely and entirely religious since Jew-hatred is mandated and incited in Muhammad’s Quran. By the way, this Muslim hatred and aggression is not only directed against Jews but also commanded by Allah’s Sharia against 80% of none Muslim humanity: Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Agnostics, Pagans, etc., who are insultingly called Kuffar/Infidels.
Having time and again failed to achieve their evil goal by military means, they decided to fight Israel by proxy. For that purpose, they transformed the Arabs of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza into an ad hoc group and cynically called them ‘the Palestinian people.’
How else can one explain the refusal by Jordan and Egypt to unconditionally accept back the ‘West Bank’ and Gaza, respectively?
Can anyone show the world any proof to indicate if there ever was an entity called Palestine and its people Palestinians?
And if not, then who are the people presently called ‘Palestinians’?
During a press on April 1, US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price talked about the upcoming Palestinian elections – the first in 15 years – the “two-state solution,” saying:
“The exercise of democratic elections is a matter for the Palestinian people to determine. We note that the US and other key partners in the international community have long been clear about the importance of participants in that democratic process, renouncing violence and renouncing terrorism, recognizing Israel’s right to exist.”
To be charitable, Price – like most Democrats – must be high on crack-cocaine, because I am willing to predict that the Fundamentalist Sharia-compliant Muslims, such as Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood and others – whose’ publicly declared charters and statements not only extol violence, incite terrorism and refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist, but furthermore, assert the extermination of Israel and its Jews – will most assuredly win and never have any elections thereafter.
My prophecy will determine if IQ is more knowledgeable about these subjects than the whole of Biden’s administration and all of the European Union.
