The Dirty Little Secret: Palestinians Donít Exist!
CSTNEWS ^ | October 8, 2012 | Don Boys, Ph.D.

Posted on 10/08/2012 6:23:49 AM PDT by John Leland 1789

There is no such group as the Palestinian people. They have never existed, do not exist now, and will not exist in the future. They are the only people in all history that came into existence in a single day! This was admitted by Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist: “Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?” He added that he did not mind Jordanian rule.

He and his compatriots were Jordanians “until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians.” Shoebat was saying that when the Jews re-took their historic and biblical homeland, the myth of an Arab Palestinian nation was created out of thin air and promoted worldwide. The gullible media, too lazy to do the research, still spouts the PLO line about the “Palestinian people.”

It is political humbug. Those people who are identified as “Palestinians” are simply refugees from Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. However, there are millions of these people who were born in refugee camps and have been taught they are “Palestinians.” But they are not. In 1948 and the1950s, displaced Arabs lived in abject squalor in refugee camps (supposed to be temporary) under the custodial care of the United Nations. Muslim leaders did not care about them until it became politically expedient to do so. There are no Palestinian people, or history, or culture, or coinage, or language, or uncovered artifacts. Palestinians don’t exist and never have. Muslims and media that promote “Palestinians” are repeating a falsehood and resisting the facts.

It must be emphasized that God loves Arabs as much as He does Jews; however, Jews have a special place in His plan. His plan was to redeem man through the sacrificial death and resurrection of His Son. Those “Palestinian” leaders who spout hatred for every non-Muslim are loved by God even if men have trouble loving them.

Israel was originally called the "land of Canaan" (Gen. 12:5), the "land of Israel" (1 Sam. 13:19), and the "land of Judah" (Isa. 19:17). The first century Jews had a thing about being under the thumb of the Romans (or anyone) so they seethed in constant hatred and rebellion against their oppressors. The Roman Emperor Hadrian was understandably (from his totalitarian view) displeased with the rebellious Jews and wanted to erase the name of Israel and Judah from history and the face of the Earth. He decided to ridicule them by renaming the land of Israel, “Syria Palaestina” identifying them with their hated enemy, the Philistines. Whatever Rome called the land, the Jews were still Jews.

It is from the term "Philistines" that the name "Palestinians" has been taken. Emperor Hadrian knew that Philistines were ancient enemies of the Jews and therefore the emperor showed his hatred and spite by giving Israel a new obnoxious name. Philistines were not Arabs (and were in fact, invaders from Crete) and there is no mention of Palestine until the first century. Palestinians are not mentioned in the Bible or Koran because they did not exist until after 1967.

In 135 Hadrian put down a Jewish rebellion by killing 580,000 Jews, leveled 985 villages and 50 fortified towns. That is why Jewish writers always refer to him by saying, "may his bones be crushed." Psalm 83:3-4 probably prophesied Hadrian’s oppressive actions: “They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 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.”

It didn’t work and never will work. Zachariah 2:8 warns: “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.” Jews, even while in rebellion, are special to God. Jews are forever!

God promised (and warned) in Genesis 12:3: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee.” Hitler and all Jew-haters discovered that verse to be literally true.” Earlier Americans learned that truth while Muslim nations have not. The results are obvious.

The “Palestinians” are bogus, a political show, and it’s time to pull the curtain on the charade.

It is not a secret. It is just something joe sixpack didn’t bother to find out, the MSM didn’t want to report, and politicians - and especially other arab countries - want to ignore.

Anyone with more than a passing interest in the history of the “Palestinian” people has known this for a long time.

This is all sophistry. In 1948 70% of the population of the land between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River, called at the time Palestine, were Arabs. It is now estimated that, even excluding the refugees, they constitute 50% of the population of that area. What they are called is irrelevant, they still have the right to live in the land in which they were born.

Israel has only two just options: either annex all the territories and grant full and equal citizenship to all the inhabitants or divide the land between themselves and the Arabs, which was the rational for the creation of the State of Israel in the first place. I recognize that both options are unpalatable and will not argue which would be better. A third option of expulsion of the Arab population is just not going to happen and would lead to a war in which Israel would be isolated from the whole world, possibly even the U.S.

I'm a bit confused.

Suppose an Arab child is born, today, on the West Bank. What is the nationality of that child? Note that I'm asking about the child's nationality, not his ethnic membership. For example, what passport should he eventually hold?

Should he get a Jordanian passport? If so, then you're saying that the West Bank is really, today, Jordanian territory.

But that doesn't make much sense. Should a person born, today, in Boston be automatically eligible for a British passport, just because England once ruled Boston?

So should that Arab child get an Israeli passport? If so, then you're saying that everyone born on the West Bank is an Israeli citizen, with all the voting rights, rights of free movement throughout Israel, etc. as any other Israeli.

Such a situation might well lead to the end of Israel.

In my mind, neither “Jordanian” nor “Israeli” seems to fit that Arab child. So is the child therefore stateless, not eligible for any passport and not eligible to vote in any elections anywhere at any time?

That seems wrong also. IMHO, "Palestinian" is the only option left.

You have been seriously misled.

You might be able to make a case that there is no nation of Palestine. Asserting there are no Palestinians displays the depth of your ignorance and gullibility.

In 1917 the Balfour Declaration stated:
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, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

The existing "non-jewish" people are Palestinians.

Then the British government gave two-thirds of the Palestinian Mandate over to a Saudi prince, and named the new entity Trans-Jordan. Jews were told to withdraw west of the Jordan, because that land was reserved for them, and the new Arab nation, could not have Jews in it (talk about discrimination).

In 1948 Israel was created. It pleaded with the Arab inhabitants to stay and live side by side with them. The surrounding Arab nations demanded that Arab leave the new state and allow them to drive the Jews into the sea. Some left, some stayed, and eventually became citizens.

The new Jewish nation was immediately attacked by the surrounding Arab nations. As a result, Trans-Jordan occupied what is now known as the West Bank, and changed its name to Jordan, since the original name means across the Jordan, and now they occupied land west of the Jordan.

Over 600,000 Jews were forcibly exiled from the middle eastern Arab states, and Israel refused entrance of Arabs who had left Israel, hoping that Israel would be destroyed, and they would come back in and take over the Jewish property that had been built up over two millennium.

The 600,000 Jews resettled in Israel and elsewhere outside of the middle east. The Arabs, who had left their lands to give Arab armies a free hand in destroying Israel, were left by their fellow Arabs in refugee camps on Israel's borders. Jordan destroyed Jewish synagogues in Jerusalem, destroyed the Jewish graveyards, and use the tombstones as floors for their urinals. Access to holy sites was closed off to Jews. All Arabs living in the area, occupied by Trans-Jordan following the 1948 war, were given Jordanian citizenship.

In 1967 Israel begged Jordan not to attack Israel along with Syria and Egypt. Jordan attacked and as a result lost the West Bank to Israel, including occupied Jerusalem.

Jews now possessed the Temple Mount, which had been lost to them in 70 AD when Roman legions, destroyed Jerusalem. Since approximately 1000 BC, Jerusalem has been the capital of only one nation, Israel. All invaders Roman, Byzantine, Muslim, or Crusader never established any other nation on that soil with Jerusalem a its capital.

Jews, in respect for all religious groups, gave open access to all faiths to its holy sites, including the Mosque of Omar and the Dome of the Rock, on the Temple Mount.

The only group ever referred to as “Palestinians” prior to June 1967, were the Jewish settlers. Once Jerusalem and West Bank came into possession of the Jews (following a deliberate attack by Arab armies), a subgroup of Arabs had to be created, that would be viewed as a small, persecuted minority, rather than part of the greater whole of Arab Islam, and its final goal of the reestablishment if a Muslim Caliph, controlling all Muslim lands throughout the world.

Many leaders calling themselves the Mahdi have come and gone over the last 1382 years of Muslim rule, but all follow the same pattern of deception, brute force, enslavement, and subjugation of all peoples who do not bow to Mohammad and Islam. After all, the word Islam means submission.

There is no love exhibited by the moon god Allah, only forced submission. That god was worshiped in ancient Babylon, and by Mohammad's father, as an idol, before Mohammad used it as a unifying force for Arab expansionism.

Sorry, but the land has already been divided.
And,, since the Israelis have kicked Arab ass repeatedly, there is a pretty good argument for them owning the West Bank, Gaza strip and Golan Heights “by right of Conquest.”

The land comes with the people. If they own the land then give the Arab residents full and equal citizenship.

You have a point. The Palis need to go, too. Load up the box cars and ship them back to Jordan or Egypt.
You’d have to be suicidal or an enemy of the state, to give citizenship to people who want to kill you and destroy your country.

Call them Palestinians or call them Jordanians or call them something else, there are a couple of million of them and they don’t like Israelies at all. Changing their name won’t make them go away.

You need to get your head out of the clouds and live in reality. After 64 years it is clear that neither the Arabs nor the Jews are going to leave. It is time that both sides give up their absolutist claims and come to just terms with each other.

You need to check the mirror. Palis are willing to kill to their own children to hurt Israel. There is no basis for change, no common ground with which to work.
To suicidal and enemy of the state, I’ll guess I’ll have to add “deluded dupe.”

Until the 1960s, ‘Palestinian’ meant ‘Jew’. I have seen Jewish IDs from the Mandate that said so. That’s why your example specified ‘non-Jewish communities’: If it had said ‘Palestinian’ it would have meant ‘Jewish’.

Just to be clear, ‘Jordanians’ are also a very modern creation, ruled by the family that were the protectors of Mecca before the Saudis.

There is nothing quite as ridiculous as a failed attempt to belittle another person's knowledge or intelligence. Not considering your insults toward the OP, your reference to, and misinterpretation of, the cited text demonstrates your own lack of reading comprehension.

The citation does not define "Palestinians" as non-Jews. It refers to communities in a place called Palestine which are not Jewish, and therefore tacitly acknowledges that there were communities which were to be otherwise distinguished as Jewish; the "existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine" as opposed to existing Jewish ones. Were there no distinction to be made, the language would be as redundant as saying 'existing Palestinian communities in Palestine', or 'existing non-Jewish communities in non-Jewish lands'.

"Palestinian" is a geographical identification and "Jew" is not. To contrast the two is a sensible as comparing "Italians" to "people from the West Coast".

Perhaps you need a little more history information on that area. THERE IS NO PALISTINE. That area ia not Arabic. You confuse this fact that all moslems are not Arabs but most Arabs are moslem. Syrians, Turks, Iranis, Iraquis are moslem but not Arabs. They are not from the Arabian peninsula. As a matter of fact they pretty much hate arabs. The Turkish word for dog and negro is “Arab”. The so called palistinians are a made up people.

The self-identified 'Palestinians' are akin to the gypsies of Europe, outcasts of the Arab world, willing to be used as pawns because they have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

They're nothing more than useful dupes; it would be sad if it weren't such a sinister pact.

THERE IS NO PALISTINE.

This is perhaps the most asinine thing I have ever heard. It is one thing to state that the people who live in this area are not a separate nation or people from their neighbors, it is another to deny that one of the names that this area has been known as in Palestine. The term Palestine predates the Israeli/Palestinian dispute by 1500 years. It was used by Herodotus in his Histories in the 5th century B.C. It was also used by other such as Aristotle, Ovid, Pliny the Elder and Plutarch. It was even used by the Jewish writers Philo of Alexandria and Josephus. The term was used as the official name of the Roman province from A.D. 135 after the the Bar Kokhba Revolt. The fact that you do not like the use of the name does not change the fact that this is a name that has been historically attached to the region.

That area ia not Arabic.

This is plain silly. The non-Jewish population (70% of the population in 1947) is Arabic speaking.

You confuse this fact that all moslems are not Arabs but most Arabs are moslem.

I am well aware that many of the non-Jewish population is Christian and not Muslim. I never once mentioned Muslim.

Syrians, Turks, Iranis, Iraquis are moslem but not Arabs. They are not from the Arabian peninsula … The so called palistinians are a made up people.

True for the Turks but not the others. I think that you are confusing the term "arab" with "bedouin". The Arabs include more people than just the inhabitants of the Arabian peninsula. There are Arabs, mixed with the native Berber population, as far away as Morocco. There is a population from Morocco to Oman speaks Arabic, shares a common culture, and self-identify themselves as Arabs. That is good enough.

But make up your mind; the Arabic speaking non-Jewish population living between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River are either distinct from the neighboring Arabs or not. In the former case they are a separate people and should be called by the name they have given to themselves: Palestinians. In the latter case they are Arabs. Which is it?

In the end this is all semantics. They are an indigenous non-Jewish population that is not going away. This is a reality that Israel must accept, phantasies to the contrary notwithstanding.

An interesting bit about those who bless the jews getting blessed -- that's a yes and no

In the case of the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth, they welcomed jews from the 14th century onwards and in the 1700s 60% of the world's jews lived in Poland-Lithuania

There were no state sponsored pogroms

But that didn't help Poland-Lithuania which got ripped into three parts and the largest Jewish areas got incorporated in Russia and faced pogroms and then the Holocaust.

When the Jews were in Poland, it prospered, but that was because Jews were skilled in finance and in technology from Spain and Germany (where they came from) and they helped, along with the Germans, Armenians and others to vitalize the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth economy

This statement in Balfour only informs us that there is a particular parcel land that is labeled "Palestine." It does not state any recognition of either a race or nationality of people called "Palestinians."

I have in my possession materials on Palestine dating back to 1845, when there were Jews in significant numbers already there, beginning to build railroads, establish institutes, becoming agriculturists, planting vineyards and orchards, preparing to develop that barren land into fruitful fields.

At that time they were "stealing" no land, but purchasing large tracts, and there was very little trouble between the Jews and the Arabs from surrounding countries (not "Palestinians").

Of course, the more they developed throughout the nineteenth century, and as Zionism was developing into recognizable organizations during the time that Americans were engaged in our own war between the States, the powers of Islam were also planning how they could use the Jews' ingenuity to a certain point in the development of Palestine, and then reconquer the land for Mohammedanism, and drive the Jews into the sea.

Eventually, the western press turned Zionism into a dirty word. If you read Zionist organs from 1875 to 1915, you do not read of hatred against any Arab inhabitants of Palestine. You read of plans and fund raising among Jews for the industrial and agricultural development of Palestine.

There were two movements of Jews with regard to a homeland : Hirschel's idea that a Jewish homeland was needed, but that it could be anywhere on earth ; and also the (e.g.) Chovevi Zion insistence that it must be in Palestine. Neither side of that issue wrote of ridding any place, no not even Palestine, of its then current inhabitants . . . which were, by the way, not in any kind of political possession of the territory any more than they are now !

There was no Palestinian nation and there was no Palestinian nationality.

If there was any development and higher learning there (and there was), it was by the finances and finesse of Jews, not Arabs.

Interesting Poland or Polania was viewed by Jews as a good place from the 1400s until well after the partitions in the 18th century — Po lan ya can be translated as “here God dwells” in Hebrew. yet this didn’t stop the mutilation of Poland. Well, the struggles the Poles faced from the 1700s until the 1990s includes the pain and death of the Polish Jews.
