Skip to comments.The Dirty Little Secret: Palestinians Donít Exist!
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 dont 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 Hadrians 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 didnt 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 its time to pull the curtain on the charade.

Pass it on if you agree!
They're nothing more than useful dupes; it would be sad if it weren't such a sinister pact.
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.
"Anyone with more than a passing interest in the history of the Palestinian people has known this for a long time."
If you read the other comments, you will see the necessity of repeating this theme.
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
there are Christian Arabs both in Israel, West Bank — they have been there centuries....
If you read the other comments, you will see the necessity of repeating this theme.
I agree. I wasn’t dissing the thread. I was just making a statement of fact,and a sad one - that the thread is needed.
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.
