As the Palestinian Authority leader Abbas (Fatah) gave his surreptitious directive, to his hordes, from the podium at the UN ... and innocent Israelis became victims ... it became imperative to end the current crop of lies being perpetuated by the Western media.
There are so many lies to choose from, but let's deal with just two: the real 'Palestinians' and the settlements.
There are no such people as 'Palestinians'. They are a fictitious group. Here are some facts:
• The name Palestina or 'Palestine' was a nomenclature created by the Romans. They wanted to rename Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) after the Philistines, the historical enemy of the Jews. It was only coined by Rome in 136 A.D. For virtually 2,000 years Jews were the only 'Palestinians' the world acknowledged.
• Islam was only founded in 610 A.D.
• Arabs first arrived in Israel with the Muslim invasion in 637 A.D. (Muslim conquest of Jerusalem.)
Yasser Arafat (late chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the PLO) and his henchmen began using the term 'Palestinians'. On March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, who stated:
The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity ... Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism.
Now, here's a riddle: What do you call a country where almost 100 percent of the population is comprised of 'Palestinians'? A 'Palestinian' state, right?
Wrong. That describes the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Jordan has a demographic that is 70 percent 'Palestinian'. Now, as Israel does, if the Bedouin population is incorporated in that category, the figure rises to 100 percent 'Palestinian'. With these kinds of stats, I think the PA should share in the Kingdom's rule ... don't you?
But I'm not thinking King Abdullah will allow that to happen - because it was tried before and his daddy halted that goal ...
September 1970 is known as 'Black September' in Arab history and also as the "era of regrettable events." It was a month when Hashemite King Hussein of Jordan moved to crush the autonomy of 'Palestinian' organizations (like the PLO) and restore his monarchy's rule over the nation. The violence resulted in the deaths of thousands of people, the vast majority being 'Palestinian' (approximately 30,000). The armed clash ended in July 1971 with the ejection of the PLO and thousands of 'Palestinian' miscreants to Lebanon, where they wreaked havoc on infidels (Lebanese Christians) and since then have monopolized the country, causing Christians there to cower through appeasement.
Now, Jordan has lots of land (45,495 square miles, to be precise). They have a population comprised of mostly so-called Palestinians. So why the cry for a 'Palestinian' state?
Well, because like most of the Arab world, they have no concern for these 'refugees', even though they are Muslim brothers. They are using them as leverage to attain their long-desired goal: the elimination of the state of Israel. And if they would give the 'Palestinians' land on which to reside, the 'Palestinians' would lose their victimhood status, and the Arab world would not only lose their entertainment (terrorism against Jews and other 'infidels'), but their major tool to rid the Middle East (and the world) of Jews, would be gone.
The fabricated people known as 'Palestinians' are really Jordanians. The land that is rightfully theirs: Jordan.
We'll settle the next lie, the settlement sham, in part 2 ...
Shalom through strength.
