Well, break out the sand fleas and celebrate. The warring Arabs who attacked Israel no less than five times in the past 60 years, and because of their aggression and hatred, lost those wars, now wants all land back, including land that was never theirs to begin with. Well, isn’t that typical Muslim hubris.
Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations grudgingly agreed Friday to attend next week’s U.S.-sponsored Mideast peace conference in Annapolis, despite failing to get any guarantee of Israeli concessions. But neither facts nor concessions matter to Arabs, all that matters to Arabs is accumulation, hoarding, thieving and killing Jews.
Prior to June 1967, Israel did not “occupy” any Arab land. Similarly, palestinians were not calling for the establishment of a palestinian state in the West Bank, which was controlled by Jordan, or in the Gaza Strip, which was ruled by Egypt.
Sadly, there no longer exists an international emergency force to protect Israel. Everyone hates the Jew, everyone blames the Jew for everything, from 9/11 to global warming to causing AIDS.
The unwillingness of any Arab state to make peace leaves Israel with no choice but to hold onto those territories it had captured in the war started by Arabs until Arabs are prepared to negotiate a settlement and most of all, promise to recognize the legitimacy and sovereignty of Israel.
All human beings are entitled to food, clothing, shelter, medical attention, and education. We all have a responsibility to ensure that others have these things.
But criminal gangs like the “palestinian people” don’t have legitimate claims to what they’re demanding.
Palestinian Arabs are not indigenous to Palestine. They are leftover Arabs, residual of another age. Knowing Arab history is vital to understanding the situation in the Middle East. Arabs are from Arabia. Beginning in AD 622, under Mohammad, Arab “prophet” of Medina, the Islamic religion became a war machine and aggressively expanded from the Arabian Peninsula to all directions until AD 750 when it controlled North Africa westward to Spain and southern France, northward to Palestine and Armenia, and eastward 400 miles past the Indus River.
During all this time Palestine was little more than a wilderness of nomads, loosely associated groups of provincial subdivisions with frequently changing administrations. The people were a “pan-Arab” mix of gypsy-like leftovers, whom the General Syrian Congress of 1919 declared to be “the southern part of Syria.” It wasn’t considered “Palestine,” a separate Arab nationality, until the 1967 Six-Day War of Israel’s boundary expansions. Arabs weren’t even in Palestine until the mid-7th century AD, over a thousand years later, after Palestine’s 1,300-year Jewish history.
Arabs later living in Palestine never developed themselves or the land, but remained nomadic and hardly productive during their 1,200-year stay. The difference between the American Indian and palestinians is that the American Indian can prove they lived in North America for centuries prior to the arrival of Europeans. Palestinians can’t prove anything, so it is imperative that the world stops immediately proposing a “palestinian peoplehood”. It’s invalid.
Moreso, Arabs have been killing Jews since the early 1900’s when there was no occupation.
And there is no occupation now. Arabs chose war, Arabs suffer the consequences.
There is no moral equivalence between what Jews do to defend themselves vs. what palestinian barbarians do to perpetuate the myth that their land was stolen by Jews.
The land that Israel is built on was bought and paid for – by Jews.
When some Palestinians fled in 1948 after their leaders told them to leave because they were going to kill the Jews, they left, thinking that the Jews would be dead when they returned.
Talk about hubris.
Now they pathetically crawl back and want their homes back or what they fabricate was their homes.
Right now, millions of Germans and Poles are living in the homes of murdered Jews, and no descendant Jew would humiliate themselves to demand that these Germans and Poles leave their homes so that they could return. Instead, the Jews made new homes, in Israel and in the US. In Israel, the Jews returned to their land that was barren and infertile, to land that some Arab landowners vacated, and to land that was never inhabited by Arabs to begin with.
Arabs think that the rest of us will bow to them by bombing us in our offices, synagogues, and kindergartens.
But let me scream this from the highest tower; there is no law on earth that requires the Jewish people to accept the revision of their history nor their own demise merely because Arabs say we should. The fact that Israel was attacked after leaving every inch of Lebanon and the Gaza Strip proves that the reason why Hezbollah initiated the war was not because of any territorial dispute, but just because Israel exists.
To those of us disgusted with the demonization of Israel, the nazification of Zionism, the politicization of all things Israeli, the Arab oversimplification reducing all discussions of Israel to the “palestinian problem”, I say, the “palestinian people” have not suffered enough and may their suffering continue for another 60 years.
Meanwhile, Condi Rice and every other American who is and will be betraying the Israel nation, should be informed that there is already an Arab state, to the one Arab nation (one nation, according to the Arabs themselves, see e.g. Weizmann-Feissal 1919 agreement talking about one Arab state for the Arabs and one Jewish state for the Jews which is “Palestine, east and west”).
In all other documents, the Arabs claim to be one nation only, therefore deserving one state only. Yes, there is already A Palestinian Arab State: It is called Jordan.
