Inside the Head of Mahmoud Abbas, His Mind and His Concept of Peace

 

Mahmoud Abbas has two items in his mind, his definition of a just peace and keeping the cash flowing into his and his family’s pockets. He has a great gig going as he simply refuses to accept any peace which permits the Jewish State to continue while knowing that as long as he holds out, there will be an enormous cash flow from which he diverts his unfair share. Israel has nobody to blame but their own errors in expecting that the PLO could be reformed and reach a lasting peace with Israel. These conclusions were in straight defiance of the things claimed by Mahmoud Abbas and Yasser Arafat before him. They spoke of conquering all of Palestine in stages making a peace and then breaking it demanding more land after each time. But peace is the last thing on Mahmoud Abbas’s mind as he is making off great raking in the slimmed funds right off the top of the monies from the EU, the UN and until recently, the United States and numerous other nations in Europe and the Middle East. Abbas can travel anywhere in the world freely and be received as an honored guest often shown far more respect that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would receive visiting the same places and people. Mahmoud Abbas sits in the catbird seat almost invulnerable to any accusation for he has been crowned by the EU, UN, numerous NGO’s, several UN Agencies, politicians near and far as the peacemaker and the sole promise for the Middle East. No title has ever been less appropriate.

 

There has been one central pillar to Mahmoud Abbas and his vision of peace, namely that President Trump and his Deal of the Century and anything else President Trump cares to present will be dead on arrival. Abbas has sworn to refuse any and everything proposed by President Trump. After all, is not refusing to consider any peace proposal how one becomes the peacemaker? But still Mahmoud Abbas has declared that he is open to any just peace which he defines as receiving his 22% of the British Mandate lands. Check the map below which depicts the British Mandate and the intended division as per treaties and conventions including being enforceable by the UN according to Article 80 of their Charter. This division gave 78% of the British Mandate lands to the Arabs as the country of Transjordan, subsequently changed to simply Jordan, and 22% for the Jewish State of Israel with the Jordan River as their border. This is the 22% Abbas is referencing when he claims he is ready for a just peace where he receives his rightful 22% of the British Mandate lands. He is referencing all of Israel as denoted in the 1964 original PLO Charter where they laid no claims to the West Bank under Jordanian rule or Gaza under Egyptian occupation but their claim was the rest of Palestine, simply all of Israel. Their claim has not changed, they just increased the size of what they demand to include what is today all of Israel. This is the demand of the man they title peacemaker and laud him wherever he goes in Europe, the United Nations and much of the developing world where he is viewed as some form of hero.

As recently noted, but worth another stating, the PLO has decided that no Arab has the right to leave their region seeking to make a new start anywhere else. They are holding their population as hostages just as they did to the Arabs who obeyed the Mufti’s order for them to come behind the Arab lines such that the soon to be conquering Arab armies could simply shoot everyone they found. When the conquering Arab armies failed to conquer quite as well as planned, they took the occupied regions of Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank) and locked the Arabs who trusted them to win annihilating the Jews into camps to be used as bartering chips claiming all of the land of Israel. This is the true origins of the vast majority of the Arab refugees who they claim were cleansed when they were called out by the Mufti of Jerusalem and they obeyed and such is their reward. Theirs is to await the final redemption of the lands from the Jewish usurpers. When the Arab world delivers on the promise of the Mufti, the total destruction of the Jewish State and the cleansing the region of everything Jewish, then these refugees in the camps are presumed to be permitted to return and enjoy the spoils, that was the original promise. As far as the world is concerned, these Arabs are the sole refugees from this conflict completely ignoring the over 800,000 Jews forced to flee the Middle East and North Africa who largely made Aliyah and came home to Israel. These Jews as well as those from Ethiopia and India amongst other remote locations, put to a lie the claim that all of Israel is made up of European Jews. Granted, European and North American Jews make up almost 18%, while Russian Jews make up another 16%, plus African and Asian Jews are just over 25%, while lastly the native-born Jews in Israel make up 39% of the Jewish population (see table below). With the rising anti-Semitism seemingly being world-wide, one can expect even more Jews making Aliyah and coming home if for no other reason, Israel will take them while the rest of the world would rather not touch them.

But as far as Mahmoud Abbas is concerned, there was no Jewish history anywhere in the Middle East, all Jews come from New York, Los Angeles, London and the other major cities in Europe and North America. Judaism, to Abbas, is a religion and not a people or any group with a rightful claim to have lands anywhere like Islam which is the only form of rule suitable for planet Earth. You see, Mahmoud Abbas is a Muslim and thus believes that the world is broken into two regions, Dar al-Islam, the world under Sharia and thus peaceful and good, and Dar al-Harb, the world to be conquered by Islam and thus the world of war where evils are to be conquered and purified by Islam. This is behind his inability to allow or accept to grasp the idea of the Jews having their own state. Jews are to be hounded and chased from place to place never feeling safe or secure and without normative rights and definitely no privileges. The Medina Quranic verses are not very favorable towards Jews. The Medina Quran was written after the Meccan Quran and thus its verses overrule the earlier ones under the concept of Abrogation. A brief description of the two Quranic writings can be viewed here. There is no concept of any Jewish state despite all of the evidence, something the PLO and the Waqf have both attempted to destroy by digging presumably new water pipes on the Temple Mount leaving tons of dumped and broken pieces of Jewish history which is sifted through by a team of dedicated workers. They deny any and everything found linking the Jews to the land such as this recent find in Shiloh. And as far as the Jews returning to the lands from whence, they came, does this include the return of the properties of the Jews exiled from the Islamic world?

 

If anyone is ever planning on reaching some form of peace, currently the best method would be to grant every Arab the choice to emigrate to another country after receiving a generous payment for all properties and a relocation bonus which could be quite a handsome amount. This was the plan presented numerous times throughout the history of Israel and somehow it always gets ignored. It would be ideal if somebody were to overrule Hamas and the PLO and provide protection for those who desired to take the offer for relocation such that they could leave in safety and in an orderly manner. Such an offer cannot be enforced by Israel simply because the world would rise up with great indignation claiming this was just another form of ethnic cleansing when it is actually the second half of relocating those on the wrong side of the agreed upon borders. There were over 800,000 Jews exiled from the Arab and Islamic world and this would be the second half where the Arab refugees are accepted into the Arab world just as Israel took in the exiled and instant refugee Jews. But then we run into the same problem, Israel is not treated like any other nation. For Israel, her decisions must be approved by the rest of the world simply because the world has claimed the right to instruct Israel in what she may and may not perform. This is simply refusing to solve a problem which will only end in one means, a war where the casualties are unimaginable as should the PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah and Iran continue on their present course, they will educate their populations steeped in hatred of Jews and Israel specifically and then have a general attack by the populations rising up. This would consist of the Arab population of the PLO area, Gaza and southern Lebanon aided by IRGC and Iranian units in Syria all attacking Israel with rockets and literal waves of civilians surging across the borders in an effort to displace the Jews. When these waves are intercepted, then the EU, UN and the rest of the chorus will raise their voices decrying the offense to humanity. But they are the ones forcing this inevitability upon Israel, and just as bad, upon the Arab population and largely its youth as this human wave attack will be populated. Allow the Arabs to freely decide whether they wish to live under Israeli rule west of the Jordan River or wish to be bought out and given a substantial investment in their relocation aiding them and making them desirable to other nations. This or the final fight will one day come and the world will wonder how such a thing could happen, and they will be shocked and feign innocence. And that claim of innocence is the last straw which will forever break their credibility, as if they have all that much now.

Election Update, Can Bibi be Stopped?

 

We are not foolish enough or so blind as to believe that Bibi will not be forming the next government. This is almost an inevitability. But what can be prevented is his forming a “Unity Government” with Blue White while leaving the New Right-United Right coalition he all but forged himself out in the cold. It is entirely possible, probable even, that between Likud and Blue White parties they will have over sixty mandates likely achieving as high as sixty-seven mandates between the two parties. Such an outcome precludes any other parties being required to form a government. We understand that everyone who proposed such an outcome thus far have had their prediction ridiculed and their acumen questioned. We would rather simply explain our reasoning and allow it to stand or be crushed by the eventual events surrounding the coming September elections.

First, we will admit we feared this when Bibi was unable to cobble together a right-leaning coalition after the elections just passed and failed in forming a coalition. We even see the European Union (EU) having a small hand in these coming disasters. They are the reason that Bibi needs a coalition which he has sufficient control such that it cannot crumble as the plans move ahead. Bibi is facing the Sharon moment when his entire reputation into the future will be affected. Ariel Sharon faced a similar threat to his plan but managed to form a new coalition under a new party without holding elections. He took a fair number of Likud members as the core to his new Kadima Party and formed a unity government around them using the Labor Party as the main partner. This led to the Gaza Withdrawal. One particular factoid which bears remembering is that until immediately before the Gaza Withdrawal was executed, Bibi Netanyahu remained allied with Ariel Sharon only pulling his support when it became obvious that Bibi would have lost his credibility within Likud, something which would have made his run as Prime Minister impossible. Bibi pulling away from Sharon was something necessary for its political expediency and to hold together the power base which Bibi had formed and who would be his springboard back into the Prime Minister position. But Bibi also was impressed by the media attention and the praises lavished upon Ariel Sharon simply for his having permitted Israeli policies to be dictated by the United States, specifically the State Department, and the approving light shined on the Gaza Withdrawal by the EU and its member states.

 

We have always suspected that Bibi Netanyahu plays to two audiences, the core Likudnics who keep him at the fore of his party and the European leaders from their respective capitals and the EU as the voice of Europe. These are also the main controlling forces behind much of the world media, or the result of what the media praises and condemns. Bibi is not solely to blame for far too many of the positions and decisions he makes as we fear that Sarah, his wife, has far too much sway and influence over his actions and even sometimes what he is permitted to think. This may have been the source rumors after the last elections that Bibi had signed an agreement with the EU allowing them to build anywhere in Area C from the Oslo Accords which had designated Areas A and B for the Palestinians to build and Area C was to be reserved for Israel. Of course it did not take the EU and numerous European nations along with the United States State Department, from now on this grouping shall be referred to as “the Beasts,” from decrying that the entirety of the disputed territory was supposed to be given to the Arabs and Israel should just be glad they were permitted to win the Six Day War and Yom Kippur War. Any other nation on planet Earth who had been attacked by around half a dozen neighboring countries would be granted the right to annex whatever lands were considered necessary to provide more secure and defensible borders. The aggrieved nation would also have the right to force the inhabitants of any lands they deemed necessary for their achieving good and decent borders to relocate into the nation from which said lands were acquired without any remuneration. These were the rules by which the entirety of the map of Europe was drawn, actually redrawn, after World War I when the Austria-Hungarian Empire and German Empire were broken up by the victorious allies (see maps below). This redrawing of the map even went so far as to create several nations such as Poland, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. These nations were formed under the auspices that indigenous peoples required their own nation, the exact reason why at the same time as Europe was redrawn, so was the Ottoman Empire and Israel was to be established as the homeland of the Jewish People. The British Mandate declared that the borders of the state of Israel were the Negev border with the Sinai Peninsula, the Blue Line with Lebanon, the Golan Heights with Syria and the Jordan River with Transjordan (later renamed Jordan). What is most definitely notable by its absence is the imaginary nation of Palestine where Palestinian Arabs presumably are the indigenous peoples.

Even the wars Israel was forced to fight simply to be born in 1948, again in 1967 and once more in 1973, after this loss the new tactic of terrorism and destroying Israel in stages became the order of the day. So, let us list the combatants in each of the wars Israel has survived and it just may be educational for us. The war of 1948 has euphemistically called the Israeli War of Independence simply because the war was launched mere hours after Israel was formed and had declared their independence from the British Mandate and British rule. A more accurate description of the war was given by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at that time, who stated, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” The proper name for the 1948 war is it was a War of Annihilation where the Jews would be wiped from the map of the Middle East and the world. Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen who were further aided by irregulars such as the Holy War Army, Arab Liberation Army and other militias plus what were called foreign volunteers consisting of the Muslim Brotherhood, Pakistan and the Sudan. Then in 1967 came the Six Day War, so named because it took six days. The combatants on the Arab side were Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon along with aid from numerous other Arab nations and several militias. The war in 1973 was launched in a surprise attack by the Arab forces on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur when virtually everybody was either in Synagogue or at the beach if they were less religious. For the history challenged, this was before cellphones and the IDF commanders sent trucks with loudspeakers atop announcing the universal call up as Israel was at war. IDF soldiers were seen running through the streets to their homes to grab their military gear and then they met up and formed impromptu units with whomever they had and set off to turn back the invading Arab armies. These included Egypt and Syria with expeditionary forces, a nice way of saying they did not send everybody, from Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Cuba with the entire effort supported and armed by the USSR. This was the time when the Russian leader Leonid Brezhnev called Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir demanding that Israel cease fighting their poor innocent Arab allies by noon Thursday or face the wrath of the Soviet Union. The call was made on Tuesday and Golda Meir simply replied to Leonid Brezhnev asking, “Why wait?” or so it was reported. The Soviet Union did not join the war. But reviewing the names of those who fought against Israel and one notices the absence of anything remotely Palestine related. The claim that Israel was founded over top of what was Palestine hold no validity either as before the lands became Israel, they were a part of the British Mandate and before that the Ottoman Empire. There has never been a nation called Palestine in all of history. But the world is dead set on inventing it and working with the Arabs to replace Israel with Palestine.

 

This is the reason that the EU pressed Israel to provide them permission to build in Area C where their intent is to place Palestinian towns such that all the Jewish communities are completely cut off from Israel and can be suffocated when the next round of violence starts. The EU has already been building a number of these communities without permits or any arrangements for making them habitable. They do serve well as a propaganda and political message as the Arabs will place themselves in these towns and guides bring EU officials, heads of state and UN officials through these communities pointing out their dearth of utilities or anything which might make them habitable. Since these communities have thus far been simply thrown up anywhere the EU can find open areas, preferable at hill tops or other critical places all without permits or making arrangements, these communities lack roads, electricity, gas, water, sewage or any other niceties. They even lack cable television. When the tours are given, the lack of utilities is blamed on Israel and these officials gobble that up without checking the validity, after all, the Jews are denying these poor people utilities, why look up the facts when it is so obvious to these anti-Semites. But this is apparently about to change, and why, because the EU and the UN and far too many leaders around the world to even try to list have all claimed that all of the disputed area must not be returned to Israel. But now the EU desires having these communities and all future EU constructions to be provided with utilities, roads and everything to make them habitable and thus new facts on the ground supporting the claims by leftists and anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist and anti-Semites that none of the disputed territories have any relation which could imply Israeli ownership of these lands. These are all parts of the efforts which began almost immediately after the San Remo Conference set the lands between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River as set aside for the Jewish State. Even Egypt and Jordan recognized that they had held Gaza and the Shomron (West Bank) actually belong to Israel as they relented all claims to these areas which they had illegally occupied from 1949 until Israel liberated them in the 1967 Six Day War. The only remaining action under international law which remained to be executed was the relocating of the peoples back into the redrawn borders placing them under their proper national control. But why allow a little thing such as international law be applied to Israel which, according to so many in this world of ours, has no right to exist on any land no matter how small an area. The main country which has made any moves towards recognition of the Israeli right to these lands has been the United States and largely due to the support given Israel by Congress since the early 1970’s when United States aid and allying with Israel initially began.

 

For those who believe that the United States has always had Israel’s back, here are a few facts which belie such thoughts. Yes, the United States voted for the UN patrician plan which would have taken the lands west of the Jordan river and divided it between Israel and a new Arab state (see map below). They then proceeded to place an arms embargo on the entire Middle East which allowed the Soviet Union to back their Arab allies and left Israel basically alone. Israel was originally provided aircraft by France who sold Israel some Mirage jets. The United States took an interest in Israel after the Six Day War as Israel appeared to be worthy of American support against the Soviet backed Arab states. It was when Israel was about to put the Lavi fighter, an indigenous production by Israeli industries, that the United States had second thoughts. The Lavi would have been in direct competition with the F-16 on the international arms market that caused the United States to propose a deal with Israel if she would stop their production of the Lavi even before they had started to produce this indigenous fighter jet. America offered F-16’s plus F-15’s and they promised that Israel would always have air superiority supported by the United States. This promise has recently fallen by the wayside as the United States is providing Saudi Arabia and Egypt with F-35 JSF’s, the same aircraft they have provided Israel thus making the Arab air forces having more F-35 JSF’s than Israel possesses. For this reason, economic reasons and simply dependence on nobody else are reasons that Israel must immediately make plans to produce their own aircraft once more. This would provide for thousands of high paying jobs for everything from production line personnel to the engineers required to design the next generation of jet fighters and other support aircraft. This would make Israel more independent and no longer having to rely on the United States aircraft meeting the Israeli requirements for their own air superiority.

Meanwhile, Bibi Netanyahu has already begun working on the means for permitting the EU to build facts on the ground in Area C. In a recent Cabinet meeting, Ministers set guidelines for approval of construction of housing units for Arabs in Area C. This is the necessary step required to make these EU communities legal and becoming fact on the ground. Once there have been guidelines set, they can be twisted, spindled, folded, torn and manipulated in order to provide cover for any and everything the EU desire to build and the eventual cutting off of the Jewish communities in Area C such that they will become unsupportable and have to be relinquished upon which the Arabs will take them over as well. The end result of this is to allow for the creation of an Arab Palestinian state covering the entirety of the disputed lands. The only area which would remain disputed would be East Jerusalem. This is where the PLO and PA demand that their state have its capital city. Should the Arabs succeed in making East Jerusalem part of their state, it would mean the Western Wall, Temple Mount and numerous other historic and biblical places being placed beyond the reach of the Jews just as it was when Jordan occupied these lands. Gaza has already been surrendered and Hamas with Islamic Jihad hold this region from which they launch attacks upon Israel often at the behest of Iran. Should the EU, UN, world busybodies and whomever else is pressing for the establishing of a new Arab state cut from the midsection of Israel succeed, which with Bibi’s assistance is inevitable, then Israel will have been forced back to the initial borders she faced at the onset of the Six Day War. This would make Israel nine miles in width at her narrowest point centered on Tel Aviv. This would place Tel Aviv in direct fire from rockets shot off the Judean Hills overlooking the center of Israel. Once Hamas backed by Iran took control of these areas, Israel could expect rockets to be launched whenever Iran felt it necessary into the heart of Tel Aviv where should they manage to destroy a single skyscraper Israel would be counting the dead in the thousands. Whenever such an attack takes place, we can assure you that the EU, UN and much the rest of the world would be demanding that Israel not be disproportional in their response. We discussed the irrationality of not using disproportional military response in this article. We know from experience that whatever the response by Israel to such an attack would be denounced by most of the world with the EU and UN leading the way. This is where Bibi’s arrangements with the EU will become a dire situation where Israel will have little response which the world will not condemn. How can we say this? Well, it has been the response even from those Israel considers to be friends every previous time Israel has found it necessary to respond to aggressive attacks by Arab forces. There is little if any reason to believe it would be otherwise.

Finally, after the coming September election, the situation will be that Likud will be unable to form a right centered coalition. This will be the result of the attacks which have already begun to come targeting the right-wing coalition of the Unified Right and the New Right with Ayelet Shaked at the top of their list. We will be witness to one Likud person after another denigrating this coalition of parties as not including every party. This is due to three right wing parties who have refused to join the larger coalition. These include Otzma Yehudit, Zehut and Noam, likely the furthest right party, all of which have thus far simply refused any reasonable offer in stead choosing to run independently despite all polls showing their not clearing threshold. The Likud attackers will continue to press the idea that the union which has been formed is not up to the expectations of Likud to consider them a rightful partner in any future government coalition. Why would the Likud be denigrating what many see as their natural allies? Because Bibi knows that these parties would never permit the programs and future which Bibi is hoping to form as his legacy. Yes, we are speaking of Bibi and his legacy building. The past history of Israeli politics has been centered on those who worked hardest to recognize the Arab claims to the lands which make up Israel. The Oslo Accords became the legacy for Simone Perez while the Gaza Withdrawal is the legacy for Ariel Sharon. Bibi Netanyahu has a legacy as being the longest serving Prime Minister, but he desires something far more difficult to be surpassed by a future Prime Minister. Establishing an Arab state, be it along the Green Line or the Security Barrier, would make for a legacy, whether evil or for good we would see, which could not be surpassed by any future Prime Minister. The attacks on the right-wing coalition will continue as should Bibi and the Likud Party succeed in diminishing the votes received by this right-wing coalition as well as destroying any hope that Otzma Yehudit, Zehut and Noam have of clearing threshold and gaining Likud a mere three or maybe four mandates will make forming a right-wing coalition impossible without gaining the support of a leftist party such as Yisroel Beiteinu. This will set up the situation where Bibi will simply claim that forming a right-wing coalition has become impossible, impossible because the Likud continues to attack their own seeking to wring every last vote possible for Likud. Bibi’s actual desire would be to form a coalition where the Likud was the sole party. Lacking such freedom, Bibi will likely form a Unity Government with Blue White. When General Gantz announced the founding of his party, a central part of Blue White, he stated that he had learned much during the Gaza withdrawal and believes he now knows how to better enact such withdrawals and can see areas where similar actions would work to bring about the two-state solution. Never mind that Mahmoud Abbas and the entirety of the PLO and PA leadership do not desire and never have desired making their own state, they simply want only one thing, the destruction of Israel and the removal of the Jews. This has been their desire since day one and it is not about to change. They desire the destruction of Israel after which they will leave the land for Egypt and Jordan to decide who gets which parts while the PLO continues on their path of murdering every Jew who currently resides in Israel. This is the explosive package which Bibi appears to desire to pin his legacy upon, that he was able to make the Arab state from within lands belonging to Israel under international law. The reason for the pressure under which Bibi is about to fold is due to the fact that unless Israel formally surrenders claim to any of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, these lands are legally belonging to Israel and the Arabs residing in the Shomron should be legally relocated within Jordan.

 

One final note about the attempts to form this Arab state. The PLO and PA recently announced that leaving the region will no longer be permitted. Any Arab who attempts to leave the regions controlled by the PLO and PA will be charged with the crime of desertion and prevented from leaving and face jail or potentially execution to make an example of anyone who attempts to seek a better life elsewhere. This was in reaction to rumors that President Trump intends to allow Arab Palestinian to relocate and find a better life in a new location with a monetary bonus to assist their relocation. This is part and parcel of the PLO and PA efforts since the onset of the Oslo Accords, namely to put in place impediments which are meant to make any settlement of the Arab Israeli conflict impossible for as long as any solution permits the continued existence of the Jewish State. When the PLO was formed in September of 1964, it made no claim to Gaza, which was occupied by Egypt, or of the Shomron, occupied by Jordan and renamed West Bank, and only claiming the remainder of the lands between the river and the sea, or simply put, all of Israel. The PLO and PA continue to have this as their aim, the complete replacement of Israel with some Arab rule followed by the eradication of all the Jews residing within. Bibi is about to grant them their first in what they see as the eradication of the Jewish State in stages. Once they have gained the Shomron and East Jerusalem, their next claim will be the Galilee and then the Negev. This would make Israel the Tel Aviv metropolitan area completely surrounded by Arabs ready to use terrorism to drive the Jews from the lands by any means necessary. This is the reality that Israel faces and should Bibi form a unity government with the Blue White Party, then Israelis would be best served in forcing new elections by whatever means are necessary.

Why Palestinian Arabs Were Invented

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:03 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

 

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.

 

Greater Israel the Kingdoms of Kings David and Solomon Between 1050 and 930 BCE

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.
