Why Palestinian Arabs Were Invented

Let’s start this with a small challenge. Find a reference to Palestinian before 1964 which referred to Arabs instead of the Jews. Small hint, that is an impossible task. Even the British referred to the Jews as the Palestinians while referring to the Arabs as, oddly enough, Arabs. Sure, sometimes they would be called Syrians, Jordanians, Iraqi, Saudi, Egyptian and even the occasional Yemenite as their family names also depicted their origins. The original use of Palestine was, as most of you already are aware, by the Romans who after the final Jewish revolt was put down and the majority of the Jews moved scattering them throughout their empire and even selling them into bondage beyond the empire, that was the fate the Judeans faced and on top of the dispersion, they renamed Judea to Syria Palaestina in order to put an end to the Judean, the Jews. Even then, the newly created Palestinians under Roman rule were Jews. Since then, the area which comprises Jordan and Israel was referred to as Palestine while Lebanon and Syria were called Syria. There never was a nation known as Palestine and the only people to ever use Jerusalem as their capital city were the Jews. This also proves that all of Judea is part of Israel and history also backs the Israeli claims to Samaria. But we have a bigger question as the title promises.

 

The Palestinian Arabs were invented with the founding of a terrorist organization, the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in September of 1964. The whole concept and idea of how to successfully destroy Israel and turn it into another Islamic Arab run country came out of Moscow and the KGB. They had trained a number of the core officers amongst which was Mahmoud Abbas and close to the top was Yasser Arafat. They worked with the Arab League arranging to get forces and people to take on this name which was crafted with care by the KGB. They knew that for the most part, the world is completely ignorant about Middle Eastern history outside of most Jews and the majority of Arabs. This is not an area of study for most schools with the exception of the post Greater Israel under Kings David and Solomon (see map below) usually with either Babylonia or the Persian Empire followed by Alexander the Great through the Roman Empire and then nothing. The main history of the area which is now Israel was abandonment with the exception of some Bedouins, some Arabs and, more often than not, a majority population which was Jewish. Further, almost every (if not every) census by religion of the population of Jerusalem found the majority were Jews. The lie that the Jews deserted the lands is not entirely true as there have been Jews residing within what became Israel and parts of Jordan across the Jordan River as the original Tribes of Israel inhabited both sides of the Jordan River (see second map). This lack of education and knowledge allowed for the Palestinian Arabs to steal the Jews own story of returning to their ancestral lands except they left out the return and labeled it their constant inhabiting of the lands while claiming that there was not a single Jew until after World War II when the world gave the Jews Israel as an apology for the Holocaust. That entire narrative is false. Israel was promised post World War I in 1920 at the San Remo Conference and validated in numerous following treaties, then by the Mandate System put in place by the League of Nations where Israel was recognized by a unanimous vote of the members including the leader of the Arabs of that time, King Faisal and finally the United Nations Charter Article 80 enforces the Mandate System by the United Nations and recognizes the boundaries and borders of the Mandates. This makes the eastern border of Israel the Jordan River.

Eretz Yisroel from back in the time immediately after Exodus and before the additional conquest by King David and King Solomon with the original division of the lands between the Tribes covering both sides of the Jordan River. The Israelis and Jews in general could attempt to demand that Eretz Yisroel, the Land of Israel be made whole as was First Apportioned by Hashem.

 

So, the first thing which we see is that the Palestinian Arabs took the title Palestinian and always leave out the Arab part as by calling themselves Palestinians they can take Jewish historical events and claim that they were the intended party to receive the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, the 22% not gifted to Jordan as a home for the region’s Arabs (that 22% becomes important when interpreting Mahmoud Abbas). Jordan has even become known as the homeland of Palestinian Arabs as over three-quarters of the Jordanian population are closely related to the Palestinian Arabs living under the Palestinian Authority (a legalized PLO to be used by the world bodies to destroy Israel). Often both Yasser Arafat and more so Mahmoud Abbas would claim that all they want is their rightful 22% of the original Mandate (see, you did not have to wait and remember for too long). This does not mean 22% of the lands west of the Jordan River, this is a reference to the British Mandate and thus to all the lands west of the Jordan River. When, after the Six Day War, Yasser Arafat and all of the leadership of the PLO fled with the Jordanians across the Allenby Bridge into Jordan, you would never guess but they attempted to overthrow the King and take over Jordan in what would be referred to as Black September (also the name of the group which murdered the Israeli Olympic Team in Munich). After losing to King Hussein of Jordan, the PLO core were banished into Lebanon where they again attempted a revolution which might have succeeded if not for the intervention by Israel as Syria had joined the PLO in attempting to conquer Lebanon. This sent Yasser Arafat into exile with the top leadership of the PLO in Tunisia. There he sat until, for reasons which will forever be lost, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, under negotiations headed by Uri Savir with Yossi Beilin, Yair Hirschfeld, Shimon Peres, and Ron Pundak, the Oslo Accords agreement brought Arafat back as the leader of the Arabs to, as promised, bring order and an end to violence after the First Intifada. Arafat would become instrumental in forming the Second Intifada and the endless violence Israel still faces currently. The Oslo Accords is when all the great plans and schemes of the KGB would finally begin to pay dividends.

 

So, after the signing of the Oslo Accords signed in September of 1993, twenty-nine years after the founding of the PLO terrorist group, they were now transformed through Oslo into the Palestinian Authority and wiped clean of their terrorist past. Starting anew, Arafat almost immediately began building a fighting force and terrorist cells. What is interesting is who the other agents were in the formation of the Oslo Accords as this was not an out of the blue idea but another well planned plot to further the use of the Palestinian Arabs for the destruction of Israel as the Jewish State. The initial work, which was performed under strict security and secrecy, took place in Norway with a number of Norwegian facilitators. Somewhat less known was that the United States State Department was also involved in the machinations leading up to the start of the process. The story goes that some department overseeing the Middle East working with contacts within the State Department from the European desk brought in the Norwegians who offered to be the go between and not to physically bring State Department people into any visible positions. The State Department wanted complete deniability of their hands being part of this process. The Norwegians were actually representing a broader European base which also supported this idea for returning Arafat to within Israel to organize the good fight. This idea was sold on the basis of the peace reached with Egypt, the idea of land for peace, but as the Palestinian Arab position is for them to take all of Israel and the Jews can flee or be taken care of in some manner. There have been times when it was intimated that the Arabs would treat the Jews well and with respect due them once they got their Palestine returned to them. Why would there be any need to claim that the Jews would be welcome unless the Arab intent was to take all the land. Further, we all know what giving the Jews the respect due them actually means; the Mufti of Jerusalem spent World War II in Berlin and toured Islamic-Nazi battalions while also broadcasting into the Middle East urging Arabs to fight the British and begging Hitler and the top Nazi leadership to promise to cleanse the Middle East of its Jews after they conquered that area.

 

So, we have seen that the Palestinian Arabs were a KGB invention with the able assistance of the Arab League to be used against the Israeli allies of the United States and remove this region of American influence as the Soviet Union was fully behind the Arabs and their war against the Jews. When the Arabs failed to destroy Israel again in the 1967 Six Day War, (again as they also attempted to destroy Israel in 1948 and managed to occupy Gaza and the Shomron (Judea and Samaria aka West Bank of Jordan), it was decided that perhaps through terrorism they could force the Jews to give up and leave. The ties the Jews have for these lands is something that the KGB and the Arabs as well as Europeans and all the rest who think the Jews can be removed from their return to Eretz Yisroel is far beyond their ability to comprehend. This return was prophesized in the Torah and is occurring exactly as predicted. There are other references such as Isaiah 66:8 it states, “Who heard [anything] like this? Who saw [anything] like these? Is a land born in one day? Is a nation born at once, that Zion both experienced birth pangs and bore her children?” And as it states, Israel came into being unlike almost all other nations in a single day she was declared into existence. Yes, there are a minor number of Jews who claim that Israel must wait for Hashem and presumably they imply the Messiach. But Torah simply states that Hashem will cause Israel’s return in a miraculous way and that pretty much sums up everything which brought the Jewish State back from oblivion.

 

But by using the title of Palestinian attached to their movement, the Arabs claim that there were no Jews in the land until May of 1948 when the Jews suddenly appeared and invaded destroying the country of Palestine. There never was any nation called Palestine in 1948 or ever, it is simply the Roman label given the lands of this area and they included Jordan. The Arabs are correct that there was a war and many Arabs fled their homes. This was their obeying the Mufti of Jerusalem who the British brought back seeing that charges of war crimes against him were lost, dropped or otherwise ignored. He promised that the gathered six Arab armies would destroy the Jews and then they could partake of the spoils. Well, even though the Arab forces occupied lands which were intended for Israel, they did not destroy Israel, so, instead they placed the Arabs who left expecting to share in the spoils into camps where they have remained ever since. The same promise was made in 1967 before the Six Day War and again Arabs went behind the Arab armies waiting for the Jews to be defeated. Israel won this time and liberated the lands which had been taken from her in 1948 as well as the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt and the Golan Heights which the British turned over to the French in order to take them from Israel by claiming they no longer controlled these lands. These too were liberated from Syria while the Shomron was liberated from Jordan and Gaza from Egypt. Interestingly, the majority of Arabs residing in Gaza have family names which denote Egyptian ancestry. If international law and all the treaties, conferences and everything else concerning the borders of Israel, the current borders of the Jordan River, the Golan Heights and the Sinai-Negev border along with the Blue Line border with Lebanon and you have what was initially promised after removing the 78% of the Mandate gifted to the Arabs and the Hashemite family (see map below). Further, international law would allow for the surrounding Arab nations would be required to absorb the Palestinian Arabs, those in Gaza to Egypt, those in the Shomron to Jordan or Syria and that would settle the exchange of refugees.

Oh, you were unaware of the Jews who became refugees after Israel was founded? Well, over eight-hundred-thousand Jews were driven out of the Arab and Muslim world in the first decade or so after the founding of Israel. The vast majority of these Jews had their families living in these regions for over a thousand years, but they were dispossessed of all their wealth and anything of value and often allowed one suitcase to take with them, a suitcase which was carefully examined for anything of value which would be confiscated. No nation was willing to take them in unless they were forced to by dual citizenship gained from the European colonial times in the period after World War I. The vast majority came to Israel who sent planes and ships and whatever was required to bring these Jews home. They were not put into camps to languish waiting to get their property back returning to their former country as the Arabs have been, they were incorporated into Israeli society. This meant for some rough financial times, but the hardship led to the Israel of today. But the Arabs refute this claiming that these Jews deserted their former homes taking all the wealth with them and are responsible for their current troubles. One can only wonder what Bashir al-Assad will claim about the Arab Refugee camps in Syria which were struck with barrel bombs and chemical agents and were amongst the first targets for Assad’s forces to strike. There were no United Nations condemnations forthcoming and almost nothing has been said about these events, they have been largely ignored. The camps which were in Syria are now mostly ghost towns and largely ruined. That is what many Arabs think about the Palestinian Arabs. Kuwait expelled the vast majority of the Palestinian Arabs, some claim all, during and after the First Gulf War and there was no great deal made about this relocation of almost half-a-million Palestinian Arabs. Apparently, the only people who are blamed for the misfortunes of the Palestinian Arabs is Israel.

 

The eventual end to the Palestinian Arabs and their use as a wedge for the eventual destruction of Israel is not going to meet any of the world’s great dreams. As neither the Palestinian Authority nor Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza are willing to allow the Jews to continue to rule their lands and their insistence that they be given all of Israel and refusing to accept anything less, they will eventually get nothing. When that day or series of events occurs, then the Palestinian Arabs in Gaza and in the Shomron will either willingly relocate possibly with a financial incentive, or they will eventually face being expelled for the same reason that Jordan and Lebanon expelled them. Actions have consequences and if the only thing you are willing to accept is all of Israel or nothing, then you very well could end up with nothing. They were designed to erase Israel off the face of the earth and in their insistence on succeeding in that task, they will receive what the losers in any conflict receive, nothing. That is the inevitable result from the current Arab insistence that Israel succumb to being ruled by their supposed betters when these betters placed the losing bet. Israel is not going away and that is the simply end of the story. The Palestinian Arabs will eventually either rebel against their current ruling group and reach an agreement or they will receive nothing and end up exiled in the end without having destroyed the Jewish State.

Trump Peace Initiative Starting on Wrong Foot

 

President Trump’s Middle East economic package has been unveiled and it promises simply more of the same failure as we have seen before. Step one, promise to provide economic stimulus which will create jobs and provide economic opportunities for the average Palestinian Arab. This time they are talking about fifty-billion-dollars worth of stimulus. What exactly is the intention and how this plan can get beyond the same problems every previous plan had run into is beyond our ability to figure out. Perhaps it is the amount which is the intended difference as perhaps they are figuring that even the Palestinian deep pit cannot manage to pilfer, redirect and otherwise conceal such an amount. The Palestinian leadership has proven to be amongst the world’s best at stealing any and all funds invested. As displayed in the bar graph below, it is evident that the Palestinian Arab relief efforts far outpace those of any, if not all, the other needful places everywhere on the Earth. As any tour of Gaza will prove, even when provided with building materials, somehow, they build so many tunnels and bunkers such that they end up incapable of rebuilding much of the damage from even the war between Hamas with Islamic Jihad against the Palestinian Authority when Hamas took control of Gaza in a bloody coup. In each war, as time progressed, Hamas and the supportive NGO’s put forth the claim that Israel not only destroyed the same building from the previous engagements but caused further damage. The reality is the previous damages were never cleared or rebuilt; they were left in whatever condition they were when the fighting ended. Most of the buildings damaged or destroyed had been utilized as rocket-launching positions, ambush positions and other military uses with the intention of maximizing the damage done. Of course, this has been encouraged by the numerous NGO’s whose main purpose in life is to mar the Israeli reputation and to bring Israel before the numerous United Nations agencies and international courts for war crimes, crimes against society or any other criminal activities imaginable. The anti-Israel agenda has been turned into an industry which has been heavily financed by the Arabs and Islamic world as well as numerous far left institutions and funds. One can expect these NGO’s to line up to grab some of the pot of goal about to be dumped into the cesspool which is the Palestinian Arabs cause.

Mahmoud Abbas has made it quite clear that the “Pay-to-Slay” funds are paid out before any and all other items are funded. He has stated openly that even if the entire amount the Palestinian Authority was funded was equal to the funds necessary to cover the payments to terrorists, then it would all be utilized to pay the terrorists (see video below). Despite such a damning confession about the “Pay-to-Slay” being his first and foremost importance for funding above all else, the United Nations, European Union and numerous European countries and international NGO’s still swear that the Palestinian Authority is not encouraging terrorism. What is even more disturbing is that the highest paying position outside the leadership who are part of those who take a percentage of all funds provided their organizations is the murder of Israeli civilians. The Palestinian Authority even has an entire payment schedule which has been published (we have included one below). There is an even increasing amounts that are paid for the more Israelis a terrorist is able to murder. Then there are additional payments for specific other criteria such as if the terrorist has a family, is a resident of Jerusalem or a resident of Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has gone off the rails ever since President Trump announced the relocating of the United States embassy to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem. For Abbas, this was an aberrant act which was in direct opposition to the interests of the Palestinian Authority. What Abbas only states in Arabic and often not recorded is that the Palestinian Arabs cause is completely honest to the Khartoum Resolution of September 1, 1967, and the three no’s; “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel.” The only peace deal acceptable to the Palestinian Authority or to Hamas is any settlement in which Israel ceases to be the Jewish State and is instead returned to Islamic rule. This was the entirety behind the Khartoum conference.

 

 

Palestinian Authority Remunerations for Terrorists

Palestinian Authority Remunerations for Terrorists

 

Starting off this next peace initiative by promising to “invest” in the Palestinian economy is nothing new and the elites are probably already dividing up the funds and decided what minimal improvements they will use through which to distribute the funds to the right people who are in the loop and proven to share the wealth with all the right people. Theirs is a polished system through which how the cash enters their area of control, they have proven to be able to digest any amount of money regardless of the gross amount provided, but fifty-billion-dollars is the largest amount ever intended to be used to invigorate their economy and thus could be a real challenge. President Trump’s team has stated that this time the funds will be distributed with more care and will not be invested in the Palestinian leadership as has been the previous efforts. As the elites are all attached financially to the Palestinian leadership and likely to share the wealth which could be flowing into their coffers as this is necessary if they intend to live long enough to deposit their share of the funding. This latest approach to find the required means for hammering out peace between the Palestinian Arabs and Israel will be facing the same complex system which is quite practiced at distributing funds into the right people’s pockets including making sure that the “Pay-to-Slay” funds make their way to the true heroes of Palestinian society. These are also the people for whom roads, government buildings, schools, sports teams, sporting contests, parks, playgrounds and just about everything else including people’s first child’s name and some name all their children after terrorist murderers. Terrorism is the most glamorous of occupations, and it is considered an honorable profession. Such has become the attitude of Palestinian Arab society due to the indoctrination which children are exposed to as their educational curriculum. This is the societal norm which exists in the Palestinian Arab regions and the longer they are permitted to expend efforts at spreading their hatred of Israel and Jews to the Israeli Arabs is simply one more reason that the present ruling elites must be removed and preferably deported from all of Israel.

 

The reality of the Arab Israeli conflict is that the Palestinian Arab terrorism is just the latest form of warfare taken by the Islamic Arab world to destroy Israel. What this means is that there is no amount of money which could ever find a remedy to the conflict which the Arabs will accept if Israel remains the Jewish State. First item is that Islam, despite the fantasies politicians tell, is completely incompatible with democracy. Further, they are taught that the Jews are lesser beings requiring their Islamic better to care for them. We will skip exactly what caring for the Jews actually entails. From the promise of a slaughter “about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades,” by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at the start of the Arab War of Annihilation begun against Israel the morning of her founding on May 15, 1948; their intent has never wavered from this attitude. This was their intent in the 1967 Six Day War and again for the 1973 Yom Kippur War. After the Six Day War, the Arabs decided to also include terrorism to force the Jews to flee from their violence. This was an agreed tactic established actually in 1964 when the KGB working with the Arab League established the Palestinian Liberation Organization headed by two trained Arab KGB elements, Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas. Their purpose was to make life so horrific and dangerous for Israelis that the Jews would flee going back to the nations from whence they had come. This has not worked quite as well as the Arabs had planned as the numbers of Jews has continued to increase over time. There is one other item which is counterintuitive for anybody who believes the claims of the Palestinian Arabs and their propaganda elements. This is that despite claims that Israel has been attempting genocide and ethnic cleansing, the numbers of Palestinian Arabs has greatly increased over the years as well. This is but one of the numerous lies peddled by the Arabs concerning Israel and who is occupying whose lands. Under International Law, the eastern border of Israel is the Jordan River into the Golan Heights and to where it empties into the Dead sea and continuing south. Gestate on this for a while and look at a map and fairly soon one comes to the realization that the Palestinian Arabs are occupying parts of Israel, how’s that for an opposite to everything that the entire imbroglio has been built upon lies and other infirmities which threaten to have the Arab cause collapse should the world ever get past their disingenuous acceptance of the Jewish State. In time we will cover this further.

Palestinian Terror Leaders Pose Threat to Trump

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 12:53 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

 

President Trump is allowing the first glimpse of what he has in store economically for the impetus for an Arab-Israeli solution. The one thing we have noted about every slight hint about the Trump plan for an Arab-Israeli solution has had some terminology normally attached to every previous plan noticeably missing. There has been next to no mention of Jerusalem, no hints at borders, not even any call for elections nor any apparent desire to entice the terror masters of the PLO and Hamas, and let us not make any mistakes, we are dealing and have been since the start of the Palestinian Authority with the PLO wearing a mask which has become torn and tattered to the point the PLO has been showing through for quite some time. The final revelation of what was behind the mask was revealed when they began paying openly for terrorists to murder Israelis and rewarding openly all those who had done such. There has been no approaching Mahmoud Abbas or Ramallah or Gaza. It is as if the Trump “Deal of the Century” will be implemented without anything required from the current terror masters who are oppressing their people for their own financial gains. The executing arm of world anti-Semitism which has been supporting the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and all the other various terror entities are critically invisible in the leaks which have trickled out so tantalizingly slow. What could President Trump have up his sleeve, can he pull it off and will there be a Trump Tower built at the center of his planned megalopolis? This and more will become ever so enticingly anticipated to be part of the result of the upcoming Manama Conference to be hosted by Bahrain to be held on June 25-6, 2019.

 

The “Prosperity for Peace Conference,” as the Manama Conference has been titled, will be attended by Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar along with the hosting Bahrain while on the opposite side of this venture, Russia and China have declined attending claiming that they back the Palestinian terrorists demands for Israel’s head. Oh, have we mentioned that Hamas and the PLO are both vehemently opposed to the meeting believing that it is a ruse to undermine their authority and the rights of their people to their promised lands. Saeb Erekat, the Palestine Liberation Organization’s secretary general, argued in The New York Times in his editorial titled “Trump Doesn’t Want Peace. He Wants Palestinian Surrender,” claiming, “There will be no economic prosperity in Palestine without the end of the occupation.” But President Trump appears to be willing to bet that there is an alternative means for a healthy and economically prosperous Palestinian settlement which will relieve Israel of their terror threats and other economic, political and demographic risks. The centerpiece to his plan is the NEOM development and communal project. The plan is to initiate an entire new region investing $500 billion to build and establish the futuristic city in Saudi Arabia with a bridge across the Red Sea into the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt and potentially Africa (see map below). The region is scheduled to include the symbol of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s ambitions for life after oil. It covers an area of 10,000 square miles (25,900 square kilometers) have been allocated for the development of the urban area, which will stretch into Jordan and Egypt. Israel is a mere 8500 square miles (22,072 square kilometers) by comparison. The first phase of the project is set to become known as the NEOM Riviera with high end spas, hotels and other services for the intended resort area. The other projects include futuristic industrial centers, research and development areas and other commercial and industrial parks with residential and other necessities to support the intended population. Previous attempts around the world to construct such developments have by and large been failures.

 

NEOM is the Dream Solution to Arab

NEOM is the Dream Solution to Arab

 

This matches with the hints from about a year ago that a large part of the Trump Middle East peace offer was to be an opportunity for the Palestinian Arabs to relocate to a region with residential construction and a plethora of employment waiting to be filled allowing for their starting their lives anew in an area designed for their ability to succeed. That was met with threats from the PLO, Palestinian Authority and Hamas et al. Mahmoud Abbas and others have stated that the Palestinian Arabs would never surrender their claims to their rightful land from the River to the Sea. To the end, the terror masters only desire is the destruction of Israel no matter the human cost in lost lives of the refugees and those Arabs under their rule. Hamas has turned Gaza into an open-air prison where they refuse to permit their people the right to relocate to another region. The Palestinian Authority, the PLO with a nice tie, is just as adamant that the Arabs under their control would never leave and have no desire to relocate no matter how promising the offers might be. They claim that they desire merely to return to their homes, all of which just happen to be within Israel and, of course, they would never care to live with any Jews allowed in their country, but the world claims Israel, with an Arab population reaching twenty-percent living as equals with the Jews in Israel, are the racists. Can President Trump pull this rabbit out of his hat? That will depend on how he is able to arrange for the Arab Palestinians to be permitted to be freed from the oppressive rule of their two dictatorial regimes, Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza and the PLO in Judea and Samaria, the Shomron.

 

That is the crucial turning point of President Trump’s gambit for resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict. How to wrench and ply the Palestinian Arabs out from the controlling arms of those who are willing and have sacrificed the futures and livelihoods of the people in their care under their rule. The Palestinian Authority has taken a drastic step which depicts their lack of concern for their own people as they have ceased allowing Palestinian Arabs to be treated in Israeli hospitals claiming they are sending them to hospitals in Jordan and Egypt, except this is also not being permitted and their people are now going without potentially life saving treatments. This plan, should it ever actually materialize, will hit its major stumbling block when the time comes to transport Palestinian Arabs to this new megalopolis and their potentially new future full of opportunities outside the oppressive control of their current leadership. It is important to remember that Hamas, assisted by Islamic Jihad, rules Gaza by fiat and Hamas chooses their leadership and their government only employs those faithful to Hamas and the terror structure. This includes the teachers in their schools, medical personnel and every other position under government control. The Palestinian Authority, which claims to be a democracy, has not had an election since 2006 as Mahmoud Abbas knows that he would not be reelected and that this fact is so obvious that open elections are impossible in producing with him reelected, thus there will be no elections. Further, Hamas and the PLO are so opposed to one another that there will never be any hope of reconciliation between the two, especially as such would call for elections. Under this scenario, one must ask the question, how does President Trump expect to free the Palestinian Arabs from their leaders who will not even permit them to leave to receive medical treatments. Then there are the “refugees” who are the result of the Arab countries taking the Arabs who followed the Mufti of Jerusalem demanding they leave their homes in 1948 and again in 1967 so the Arab armies could simply destroy everything and everyone they found as they destroyed the Zionist Entity, Israel. When they did not succeed in this effort, they took these Arabs and locked them in camps and have kept them there for generations now. Only a minority percentage of the Arabs placed in these camps were expelled by Israel which was necessitated by a number of Arab communities who sided with the Arabs and were shooting at the Israeli soldiers from behind their lines and thus required being placed on the other side of the war. In total, these Arab refugees number far less than the over eight-hundred-thousand Jews expelled by the Arab world. Still, President Trump is going to have to find some means for extracting those Palestinian Arabs who wish to restart their lives elsewhere out from their regimes’ control. As one of our favorite shows often exclaims, “There’s your problem.”
