Israel Never Placed a Single Arab in a Refugee Camp

There is this political accusarial legend that Israel placed hundreds of thousands of Arab into refugee camps. The simple and truthful answer to this accusation is that it is categorically false. The first evidence is that there is not a single Arab refugee camp in any area under full Israeli control. That includes every inch of Israel inside the Green Line (pre-Six Day War Armistice Lines) as well as none within Area C, the region of the Shomron under Israeli civil and military control as per the Oslo Accords. Another interesting side fact is that the idea that the entirety of the Shomron (Jordanian regions called the West Bank) belongs to the Arabs and was the state of Palestine is a complete fabrication. The region was originally intended to be part of Israel but was lost to Jordan during the 1948 War to Annihilate the Jews and end the Jewish State of Israel which resulted from six Arab Armies and a number of Arab militias attacking Israel the morning of May 15, 1948, the first morning of Israeli existence. Jordan renamed it West Bank as using its Biblical names of Judea and Samaria were far too Jewish and Shomron was really not all that much less Jewish, so they invented the West Bank, as it is the western banks of the Jordan River. Jordan lost control of these lands in the Six Day War as Israel liberated their lands from Jordanian control. Under International Law, all the lands west of the Jordan River belong to Israel and currently there exists a semiautonomous region which is ruled by the Palestinian Authority in Area A and Area B of the disputed region while Israel retained complete control of Area C. All of the Arab refugee camps are either in Gaza which is currently ruled by Hamas or in the region under Palestinian Authority control. The remainder of the Arab refugee camps are in Lebanon, Jordan and Syria, all established and under Arab rulers. No Arab refugee camp was ever established in Israel. All Arabs who were within the region inside the Green Line were granted full Israeli citizenship while their neighbors and relatives who fled as instructed by the Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini who called for the Arabs to leave the Jewish State so the invading Arab armies could simply slaughter everyone on their way to victory and their intended celebration on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea as they finished off the last of the Jews driving them into the sea. The Arabs’ intent was stated well 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.”

 

Every Arab refugee camp from this war was established by the Arab nations as they forced their brothers and sisters, fellow Arabs, into makeshift camps of tents surrounded by barbed wire with armed guards to prevent anyone escaping. This was done in order to play the refugee card demanding that Israel take in these Arabs and thus inundate the Jewish State with Arabs making them a majority and ending Israel at the first elections. This never materialized and they have kept these Arabs, many actually related to people living in the same area outside the camps but they are not permitted to relocate and start their lives anew. After the armistices were all signed and set, the Arab nations proceeded to drive their Jews from within their countries over the ensuing decade. The total numbers which relocated in Israel exceeded eight-hundred-thousand Jews. Remarkably, not one Jewish refugee camp was formed and Israel never demanded that the Arab world take back their Jews. Instead, these Jews were welcomed and integrated into the Israeli society where they make up approximately half of the Jewish population of Israel. This fact also lays bare the lie that the Jews of Israel all came from Russia, the Americas and Europe as half of the Jews in Israel origins are from Arab lands in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) regions. Facts are funny things, when people hear them they immediately react stuttering an answer of, “No! Really?” The only thing one can respond is, “Yes, really.” Another little fact is there never was any Arab state or any other state named Palestine. Palestine is an adoption of the Roman renaming of the region after they dispersed the Jews presumably to wipe the Jew from the face of the earth. Destroying the Jews is far from an original idea as it started in ancient Egypt, was also attempted by the Assyrians with a modicum of success, then the Persians gave it a go followed by the Greeks, Romans, Caliphate, Crusaders, Arab Empire, the Ottomans, the British and today the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds. These are simply the attempts made which include the region which makes up what was ancient Israel.

If one were to ask, what about in the remainder of the world. We will start from Russia and work our way westward and include some from southward. First thing is that all of the above can be included in this list as well, as they were not limited to simply the region of ancient Israel but included their entire empires. Russia made a number of attempts both under the Czars who wrote the fake manuscript, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in order to make an excuse for their war on the Jews. This manuscript has since been translated into Arabic, Farsi and other Arabian languages and sells well in much of the Muslim world being presented once again as fact and proof that the Jews have evil machinations for controlling the world. The pogroms and purification as well as the Inquisition and finally the Holocaust were all resulting from the Church being used by governments to focus hatred and blame for all calamities on the Jews so the ruling class could shift all blame from themselves. The Arab world would use different methods for persecuting Jews. The first is the Jiyza, a special tax placed on non-Muslims, sometimes even just Jews leaving everyone else free from this form of protection racket. The Jiyza was paid to recompense the Muslims for providing for the non-Muslims’ safety. If you did not pay the Jiyza, then it would become known that you were an open target for thefts or even murder. When the Jews or others had been taxed by the Jiyza to the point where they did not have sufficient wealth to steal through this method, this was when the other form of oppression was used, forced conversion. The non-Muslims, specifically Jews, were given the choice of converting to Islam or being beheaded. Those who refused were often beheaded on the spot and other times they would make a public spectacle of beheading the Jews or non-Muslims. Those who did convert would need to pay very particular attention to not break any of the rules of the Islamic faith as that would often mean that your conversion was not done in good faith and you would be executed as an Apostate. That brings us across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas where we will only represent the United States. Jews have been discriminated against through the years into the 1960’s when the Civil Rights Movement ended much of such discrimination. Still, there is one seminal event where Jews were targeted directly under General Grant with his infamous General Order No. 11 of 1862 in which he dispossessed the Jews of their property and expelled them from the region under his control which included Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. President Lincoln nullified the order but by the time it reached Washington D.C. and the President reviewed this one order amongst all he had on his plate at the time and the rescinding order reached General Grant, who some rumor he sat on that communication for long enough for the order to be completely carried out, the damage was dome for the most part if not completely. There is at least one nation whose Jews were never targeted or subjected to humiliations or other mistreatment, and that honor belongs to Japan. Even during World War II Japan refused the Nazi orders to murder their Jews or turn them over to German forces. This would bring us back to eastern Russia, so hope you enjoyed our little jaunt around the globe.

 

The above also answers the question as to why there are so few Jews in the world, a mere fraction not quite reaching to 0.2% (that is 0.002 of the world population). The honest question would be how there are any Jews at all when they were treated, as we often point out, exactly as were the Carthaginians by Rome in order to destroy them and remove them from history. It worked against Carthage but the Jews had a secret, the Torah. Torah became the center of our communities and gave us our sense of being and belonging while we awaited our promised return to our beloved homelands. We have been permitted our return and are not persecuting or retaining Arabs with refugee camps. All of the refugee camps were established in Arab controlled regions making those who obeyed the demands of Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini into prisoners of their own people who refused to permit them to integrate into their lands. When one looks at a map of the Arab world compared to tiny Israel (Israel is approximately the size of New Jersey) and remembers that Israel took in over eight-hundred-thousand Jews from across that very same Arab world, it boggles the mind that the Arabs with all their empty space demand that Israel also accept their refugees (see map below). Instead of accepting the responsibility for their self-inflictive actions, the Arab world blames Israel and equates Israel with Jew. Then they have investigated literally tens of millions, if not hundred or even billions, of dollars and Euros in propaganda blaming the Jewish State for the reason that anything which their lands lack economically as well as for these refugees which have increased from the original six-hundred-fifty-thousand to somewhere over five-million who remain after generations in the camps. The Arab refugees are not even treated by the United Nations, as are all other refugees around the world. While other refugees are under the jurisdiction of the UNHCR – The UN Refugee Agency but are given their own special United Nations refugee agency just for the Arab refugees, UNRWA – United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. While all other refugees are settled as rapidly as conditions allow and their children are not considered to be refugees thus all refugees are only for a single generation, the Arab refugees pass along their status as refugees to the children and their children’s children on into posterity thus not only prolonging the suffering lasting generation after generation, but this also has swelled the ranks of refugees into the millions with no end in sight. This has been the result of the Arabs forcing their brothers and sisters to wallow in poverty being denied rights restricting their available occupations, if even permitted work, denied ownership of land or homes, inadequate facilities in many of the camps, being targeted in Syria by Assad with every sort of weapon, and other degradations beyond any form of decency or respect. Then they place the blame for their actions upon Israel, the nation which granted every Arab within her borders full citizenry and rights as equals in the Jewish state.

The other problem which has also been thrust upon Israel is the supposed Arab Palestinians who claim they were thrown out of their nation of Palestine by the Jews. As already mentioned, there never was any nation called Palestine, it is simply the name given by the Romans to the region also known as southern Syria. When the British used the word Palestinian, they were referring to the Jews and when they wished to speak about the Arabs residing in the same region, they were called Arabs, surprisingly enough. Palestine, as a region, included all of Israel, Gaza, the Shomron and all of Jordan. When the decision was made to form an Arab state and a Jewish state, the British used the Jordan River to divide the lands as the British laughingly called evenly. Despite the fact that Jordan was formed in 78% of the Mandate lands and Israel in a mere 22%, the Zionist Congress agreed to the partition and that was supposed to be the end of the problem. When Mahmoud Abbas claims he merely wants the 22% of the lands of the British Mandate which he is entitled to, most of the world interprets that to mean the old Jordanian West Bank and possibly Gaza. That is not what Abbas means. His concept of 22% is the region which was not granted to the Arabs as Jordan, or simply all of Israel. They do not even hide that fact as their protesters and their rallies in the Palestinian Authority areas and Hamas’s Gaza always chant, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” The Arabs have never given up on Azzam Pasha’s dream of, “a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Iran take this one step further and call for the extermination of the Jews on the entirety of the Earth. This is also a popular theme in Jordan, much of Egypt, most of Turkey, many Saudis and throughout the rest of the Arab and parts of the Islamic world. We wish we could say this was the limit to this hatred, but it is not. There are many around the world who also desires the end of Israel and even the eradication of the Jews. These ideas have been gaining traction on the political left, mostly the far left, but it will not remain there. Should this poison infect the entirety of the world, Israel will serve a purpose she was denied by the British when they caved to Arab demands under threats of Arabs rising up against the British throughout the MENA region to prevent the Jews from Egypt escaping to Israel in order to escape the Nazi death machine. Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini spent most of World War II in Berlin or reviewing the Islamic brigades he assisted in forming to hunt down undesirables in the Balkans. This resulted in the deaths of many Jews and Christians and a war between these SS divisions and the Serbians who resisted the Nazis. This was one of the services the Mufti provided the Nazis. He also hosted radio broadcasts which targeted the Arab world and Iran and resulted in a number of uprisings against the British during the war. The Mufti also requested that the Nazis, after they would conquer Jerusalem and the Middle East, to please carry out a Final Solution of the Jews residing across the Middle East. There is one last factoid which needs mention, the yellow marking designating a Jew used by the Nazis was not an idea of their origins, it was first implemented by Umayyad Caliph Umar II in early 8th century. The practice was reissued and reinforced by Caliph Al-Mutawakkil (847–861), subsequently remaining in force for centuries. The misconception that the Arab and Muslim world became anti-Semitic copying the Nazis is untrue as they required absolutely no assistance and if anything, the Nazis got many of their concepts from the Islamic world including the yellow armbands demarking Jews. Christians often had a different color demarking them, as did Hindus and Buddhists under Islamic rule. The untruths get so much play for a very simple reason, ignorance. Now Ignorance is not stupidity, it simply means a lack of knowing something or lacking a proper education. When it comes to history, especially anything dating back before man walked on the moon (facetious comment), all too many of the youth, those under say, forty, have little knowledge of history and as you go deeper into history, the greater the lack of information. This is even true for all too many Jews which is unforgivable as our own history over the last four-thousand years plus is sufficient to provide a general knowledge of history, but many Jews have never actually read the Torah or anything concerning their own histories. In closing, there is the famous statement by George Santayana, “Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes.”

Ask any European leader or politician and the odds are you will hear that the reason there is no Palestinian State is due to Israeli refusals to make peace and the Israeli settlements. They will speak of how the Palestinians are thirsting for peace and crave their own State and have made generous offers if only Israel would compromise. They will never mention the refusals over the decades by the Arab League, Yasser Arafat, and Mahmoud Abbas to every offer beginning with the initial offer from the United Nations to found the Palestinian State on the more select and prime farming lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea leaving only a thin strip of land along the Mediterranean Sea, another along the northwest at the bottom of the Golan Heights and over half of the land being the southern lands of the Negev Dessert. The Zionists accepted this hardly equal or fair division while the Arab League refused to allow this partition as it still allowed the Jews to rule themselves and demanded that all the land be relegated to Arab rule and they would allow the Jews to remain as long as they behaved like good Dhimmis. The United Nations and the world simply left the offer to stand in hopes that the Arab League would accept the plan, but come the middle of May, 1948, Israel declared their nationhood and seven Arab nations’ armies declared a war of annihilation against the Nascent Jewish State of Israel. Miraculously, the small newly found State of Israel managed to survive and even gain lands by pushing the combined Arab armies back taking the western half of Jerusalem within hours of the declared ceasefire taking hold. At this point there was no Israeli presence in the lands of Gaza, Judea, or Samaria with Egypt retaining control of Gaza and Jordan retaining control over Judea and Samaria which they refused to call by their historic names substituting the less descriptive and un-Jewish name of West Bank. Jordan even attempted to annex the lands they called the West Bank and made the Arabs living within Jordanian citizens. This seemed natural as the Arabs living in the area mostly had relatives either in Jordan or in either Syria or Iraq as most had arrived over the past two generations as the economy offered better employment. Jordan’s annexation of the West Bank was not recognized not even by the other Arab nations or the Arab League and was recognized solely by Great Britain and Pakistan in the entire world. Jordan also forced the Jewish residents within their areas of control to leave their property behind and expelled them into Israel. Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Ben-Gurion offered for the Arabs living within Israel to remain and join in building a future. Despite this invitation many Arabs fled into neighboring Jordan, Egypt or Syria where they eventually ended up placed in camps, denied citizenship largely due to their not joining in the war against Israel; causing them to be seen as less loyal.

During the next decade over three-quarters of a million Jews were stripped of their wealth, lands, businesses and were deported from the majority of the countries of the Arab League with the majority finding a new home and a place to restart their lives in Israel while some went to Europe, the United States and other destinations. The Jews who were ejected from their homes often with only the clothes on their backs or a suitcase or two were welcomed in Israel and were granted citizenship and full rights and today they and their descendants make up approximately half of the Israeli population. This makes the claim by many Palestinian and Arab spokespersons that Israelis should be returned to the lands from whence they came in Europe and the United States ignores that half of the Israelis lived originally in the Arab world. One must wonder if these countries would open their arms and accept the descendants of the Jews they ejected. Somehow I just cannot see that ever happening.

Since 1948 Israel has been attacked by her Arab neighbors a number of times. Resulting from the first conflict where France, Great Britain and Israel declared war of Egypt after Gamal Abdel Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal and refused to allow European shipping to pass through the canal, Israel took possession of the entire Sinai Peninsula during this conflict but returned every inch of the lands to Egypt as part of the peace treaty that also saw the reopening of the Suez Canal to international shipping. United Nations peacekeepers were also stationed in the Sinai Peninsula to prevent another conflict from erupting. In late May, 1967, Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser ordered the peacekeepers removed from the Sinai Peninsula, massed troops on the Israeli southern border, closed the Straights of Tiran and massed Syrian troops on the Israeli northern border threatening to annihilate the Jewish State. The closing of the Straights of Tiran was an internationally recognized casus belli of war. Israel responded to this declaration and defeated both armies driving almost to the outskirts of Damascus and taking the entire Sinai Peninsula once again. Close to the beginning of the war upon hearing of great Arab victories that Egyptian and Syrian radio and television broadcast they were executing against the Israelis, Jordan declared war in the hopes on taking their part in the glorious victory. The Israelis pleaded for Jordan not to enter the conflict warning them that the broadcasts were untrue and were simply propaganda. Jordan did not trust the Israelis believing they were simply frightened of another Arab army entering the war which would definitely contribute to the end of the Jewish state. The results of the Six Day War are well known and by the end of the conflict, in response to the United Nations and World pressures, Israel halted their advances also now having driven the Jordanians back east of the Jordan River liberating occupied Judea and Samaria (one must recall that Jordan illegally occupied the so-called West Bank which was originally believed to be part of Israel). During Yom Kippur of October, 1973 Egypt and Syria once again attacked Israel hoping to reclaim the lands lost in 1967 and destroy the Jewish State. After initial gains the war ended with Israel retaining all of the Sinai Peninsula and having crossed the Suez Canal and approaching Cairo as well as approaching Damascus in Syria. When hostilities ended, Israel agreed to return to the borders which had existed since the 1967 conflict returning lands to both Egypt and Syria lands gained during the closing days of the conflict. Eventually Israel and Egypt made peace (for those who claim Israel must return some of the lands they gained in the 1967 war remember the following) with Israel returning all of the Sinai Peninsula once again, an expanse of land greatly larger than all of Israel. Egypt refused any claim to Gaza which was relented to Israeli sovereignty. Further on in time Jordan and Israel also reached a peace accord in which Jordan surrendered the previously Jordanian occupied lands to Israel liberating the lands and allowing many Jewish families to reclaim their lands and homes they had left when Jordan forcibly removed them in 1948.

Somewhere the world acquiesced to the invention of peoples whom had never existed in all of history and was admitted by even Yasser Arafat they were necessarily invented in order to have a political wedge with which to remove the Jews from Arab sovereign lands, namely Israel. This twist of history beyond recognition of any historic accounts dated previous to 1920 has gained great recognition and a life all its own in Europe as well as throughout the Arab and Muslim lands. Historically, before 1948 the use of the title Palestinian had several different forms, Palestinian Arab was used to define Arabs living within the British Mandate, Palestinian Jews or simple using Palestinian alone was used to refer to the Jews living within the British Mandate. In 1922 the nation of Transjordan, later renamed simply Jordan, was founded with the issue of the Churchill White Paper where Transjordan was granted for rule by the Hashemite family repaying them for their assistance against the Ottomans in World War I and they were to rule over a Palestinian State. This was the British reaction in response to Arab insistence for a country of their own within the British Mandate. The Arab demands implied they should have their country formed over all of the British Mandate but the British still had their obligation stemming from the Balfour Declaration, the Peel Commission, Article 80 of the United Nations Charter and numerous other treaties and agreements to found a Jewish homeland. The White Paper which established the Palestinian Arab State of Transjordan also guaranteed that the lands west of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea would remain never to be divided and remain as whole and in its entirety as the Jewish Homeland. This accord was also ratified by motions and legislations in the League of Nations, the United States and several European nations. That is the history; the future is far less resolute and will likely be a thorn as intended by Yasser Arafat and those who initiated the demand for another Arab nation in place of the only Jewish nation on Earth. This desire to replace Israel with one or two new Palestinian Arab states, whichever becomes necessary by events to come, is understood as the inevitable aim of the Arab world but is never spoken of as to admit to knowing this would reveal all the duplicities, animosities, hatreds, and lies which are the realities of the negotiations the world calls the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process, originally the Arab-Israeli Peace Process but renamed in order to mask the ultimate aim of the destruction of Israel.

They Call This a Peace Process?

The nonfunctional process existing between Israel and the Arab World continues in its usual agonizing spiral of never-ending demands and denials emanating from Mahmoud Abbas. Though it is usually stated as the Palestinian Israeli Peace Process, in reality everyone recognizes that the Palestinians are simply the political ploy the Arab World uses in their never ending quest to destroy Israel. The titular head of the Palestinians has refused a number of things which should disqualify anything he is associated with from receiving any recognition from the United States and the rest of the Western World, especially if they actually mean they support democracy, human rights and freedom. But he once again stated that at no time will there ever be a reason which would allow him to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. So, let us look at this latest twist of reasoning from Mahmoud Abbas that we can include in the ever-lengthening list of his previous best of demands and denials.

 

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stated once again this past Sunday that the PA will not meet Israel’s demand that it recognize Israel as the Jewish State. His reasoning was that to do so would negate any standing for the million and a half Palestinian Arabs living in Israel and no refugee would be allowed to come back to Israel, in keeping with the Palestinian Authority demand that Israel allow millions of Arab refugees to return to their old homes in Israeli cities as part of a future agreement, as reported by <a href=http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/152676#.TzhMFrQpr6M target=blank>Kol Yisrael radio by Arutz Sheva.</a> Breaking this down into its component parts and further examination reveals what he is really saying. His first claim that the Arabs in Israel would lose their standing in Israel is relating the old canard that Israel is a racist country where only Jews are allowed to vote, drive cars, hold jobs, run for political office, and a virtual cornucopia of other advantages all of which are presumably denied to the non-Jewish citizens of Israel, particularly the Arab Israelis. This is believed by many in the Palestinian Refugee Camps throughout much of the Arab World as this is exactly the treatment they receive from their Arab brothers. There is a dirty little secret; there are no Arab refugee camps in Israel. The <a href=http://mideastweb.org/mrefugees.htm target=blank>Palestinian Refugee Camps</a> are found in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. All of the Arabs who live within the Green Line plus some of those living within the Jerusalem Metropolitan Area have Israeli identification cards as Israeli citizens. All Israeli citizens, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Bahai, Arab, European, Oriental, African, absolutely every Israeli citizen have the same rights. They all have the right to vote, run for office, hold political office, work for the government, work for any employer, drive, and every other right. They are all treated equally before the law and as citizens.  So, this innuendo by Mahmoud Abbas is meant to demean and slur Israel feeding those who do the same in near constant demonstrations throughout the world and also to further their feeling of hopelessness for any rights for the Palestinian Refugees. It is to the benefit of Mahmoud Abbas and his co-terrorists to have the Palestinian Refugees believe that their sole path to any rights is through the destruction of Israel. This is only true due to the fact that they will never be given equal rights by their Arab Brothers who are also their jailors and oppressors, but that is forbidden to say as many truths in this confrontation seem to be.

 

The other part of Mahmoud Abbas complaint is actually not a lie, just a shielded truth. The reason recognizing Israel as a Jewish State negates the Palestinian Refugees ‘Right of Return’ is that the whole idea behind this concept is to flood Israel with so many Arab refugees that simply by numbers it will no longer be the Jewish State. Once the Arabs have a majority of the vote, Mahmoud Abbas believes that they will vote in an Arab government that will take the rights from the Jews and return them to the Dhimmi class they are meant to be by Islamist societies. Should Israel be recognized as the Jewish State, then relegating the Jews to virtual non-citizen status under the protection and subject to the generosity of the Muslims for their existence becomes a moot point. What people have not been told is that Israel has made offers for a peace agreement which included a partial Right of Return for some of the refugees to inside Israel. The latest offer including such an offer was proposed by former <a href=http://www.mererhetoric.com/2009/05/31/abbas-olmert-offered-us-the-west-bank-and-the-right-of-return-but-it-wasnt-good-enough/ target-blank>Prime Minister Ehud Olmert</a> along with 97% of the West Bank and was simply refused without even the courtesy of a counter offer by Mahmoud Abbas. Mahmoud Abbas has made clear on numerous occasions in every backhanded way possible that the only solution that is acceptable is the complete and total surrender to the Arabs of the State of Israel. This was one of the reasons that readmitting Hamas, Islamic Jihad and any other terrorist groups from Gaza into the PLO is completely acceptable. As Abbas has intimated numerous times, any treaty with Israel if it does not result in the destruction of Israel as the Jewish State must then reserve the right of the Palestinians to continued resistance through all means available. Translated into plain English, any treaty with Israel must either end the existence of Israel or allow the war to continue until Israel is annihilated. Who would have a problem making that agreement?
