The people who call themselves ‘Palestinians’ have worn out their welcome in Jordan, Lebanon, and now Egypt. On top of that, they won’t live in peace with Israel.

Talk about a dismal game plan...

100,000 victims in Lebanon during 8 years!!!

Viewpoint
Inside Lebanon: A misnster's View
Sumter Daily Item - Jan 29, 1983

... The PLO came to Lebanon 12 years ago, after it was evicted from Jordan by King Hussein, that "Black September" in 1970, Hussein's troops killed 10,000 PLO fighters in the expulsion from Jordan of these terrorists which were an increasing threat to the stability of his government. Eight years ago, in 1974, war broke out in Lebanon, as the PLO attempted to wrest this ancient country from its own people. From 1974 to 1982, over 100,000 people were killed in Lebanon by the PLO, half a million were injured, and one million were left homeless, without any significant world objection. The PLO siege of Lebanon, which has been incorrectly portrayed as a civil war, was in fact a reign of terror, during which anyone who refused to cooperate with the PLO was forcibly evicted from his home, watched his wife and daughters raped and mutilated, was tortured and killed, or perhaps just quietly disappeared. The Lebanese people — both Moslem and Christian — were prisoners within their own country.
In additions to the systematic terrorization of Lebanon, the PLO over the past eight years has repeatedly shelled the northern area of Israel, crossed the Israeli border in attacks on civilian people, and from Beirut directed attacks on Israeli diplomats and offices throughout the world, the most recent being the attempted assassination of Israel's ambassador to England, Shlome Argov. The people of Lebanon were fed up with the situation, and some of the several Lebanese factions, mainly Christian, appealed to Israel for assistance, Israel, equally fed up with the constant endangerment of the population of the Galilee, concurred, and in early July of this year the Israeli Army entered South Lebanon.

... We saw the PLO headquarters in Sidon, built near the town square, but underground, beneath a large and popular amusement park (complete with ferris wheel and roller coaster), "hiding beneath the skirts of women." We saw the Moslem hospital which the PLO used as an armament depot, marking their crates of live ammunition with the symbol of the Palestine Red Crescent (the local version of the Red Cross, and whose chairman is the brother of Yassar Arafat; most of the tragically inflated statistics on civilian casualties in Lebanon were provided by the Palestine Red Crescent issued without confirmation by the International Red Cross, which has since discovered how it was manipulated and has issued a formal retraction of the civilian casualty statistics). We talked with young men and old men in the streets of Sidon, candidly and happily. They told us how glad they are to have the Israeli army come in, how their freedom has been restored after eight years. They called the Israeli army "the army of liberation." Nowhere could we find a dissenting opinion.

We were on a hill at the end of the Beirut airport, looking over West Beirut, where the Israeli army estimates that 9,000 PLO terrorists are holding several more thousand Lebanese civilians as hostages. The Israeli army a few days ago asked those civilians who wished to leave West Beirut to come to the beach to be picked up; on their way to the beach, the PLO killed all those citizens, denouncing them as traitors.

... We drove back south, to the Maronite (Greek Catholic) village of Damour. Once a village of 40.000 Christians, they massacred over 10,000 of the citizens, and drove the rest out of the village. The village was taken over as a PLO barracks.

Well, yeah, there is. It's a place not a country.

Just like there isn't a state called "The Midwest"

True. It’s a geographic location, which the Romans have named for (largely, historic) Israel ...

Apparently the Egyptians are no longer amused with the Palestinians either.

...people forget what tragedies befell Lebanon. Today, Hizbollah holds the power in the entire south. Lebanon is a hostage to her own geopolitical weaknesses. The PLO (now conveniently called the PA) killed Lebanon, forcing the Israelis to invade in 1982. The power vacuum left Hizbollah in power and they (Iran) call the shots there now. Remember people, do not forget.

1970:

* The Arab "Palestinian" PLO, following the ejection from Jordan* *, "comes" to Lebanon.

* "The PLO exploited the existence of the Palestinian camps in Lebanon to use Lebanese territories to launch its attacks against Israel.*

* The situation would get worse* in 1974, when it's being recognized by the Arab League as the sole representative of Arab "Palestinians."*

In 1975, the PLO would engage in Muslims (including Hezbollah) vs Christians* atrocities / "civil war," in that country. Some estimated that between 1974-1982 alone, the PLO massacred over 100,000.*

* Some put the total number of victims in the hands of "Palestinians" and Syrians as high as 300,000*, between 1975-2000.

You are wrong, Milagros is correct. There never was a place or a region called Palestine. It received it's current name by the Roma Emperor Hadrian.

After the second Jewish revolt under Bar Cochba (A.D. 132-135) The Roman emperor Hadrian renamed the land of Israel and Judea as Palastina ('Palestine') after the ancient enemies of the Jews - the Philistines. Because of his hatred of the Jews, it was meant to be an insult to dishonor them and remove their history. Hadrian built Aelia Capitolina, in the area of the destroyed Temple and dedicated it to Jupiter-Zeus demonstrating the supremacy of the Roman deities in Judea. He then forbid the Jews from entering.

The “Palestinians” are the Chicago street hoods of the mideast.

Other muslims use them but no one likes them.

Without foolish US politicians to support them and provide money to purchase weapons, their mindless terrorism would have been dealt with many years ago.

And so it is that, with some grim humor, I note that the Egyptians have turned on the arab equivalent of the gypsies.

What were those people thinking? They had a new regime in Egypt that should have been compatible with their aim to destroy Israel and they thought to solidify that relationship by attacking the new government’s military and killing its soldiers?

Yes there is:

The Roman emperor Hadrian renamed the land of Israel and Judea as Palastina ('Palestine')

Well there you go. You just described it to a "T". I'd say 132 AD was a historic enough reference. Who do you think gets to name things, just the UN, The British Empire?

the Philistines

(not to be confused with "The Phillipines")

Israel should do everything in its (nuclear) power to take back every square inch of what is rightfully theirs, as decreed by Roman emperor Hadrian.

That could include Lebanon and parts of Syria and Jordan.

Yes... and have been used by all Arab leaders ever since the Mufti and Co. told them to leave the area (1948).

My wife saw this girl perfom several weeks back, and brought her to my attention.  Consider this a 'good news' item.

The photo is hilarious -- reminds me of the paid professional mourners who used to be the funeral processions in pharaonic Egypt.
