One way of rewriting history is the shameless use of deceptive, bogus terms as if they are backed by facts. Their repetition creates a narrative in which falsehood eventually can become accepted as truth. This has happened before, at least once in recent memory, in Germany in the 1930's and was the basis on which the 'Third Reich' was established. It is quite scary that it is happening again ~ this time at Global level!
The world is is endowing Arabs in Judea, Samaria and Gaza with an aura of bogus peoplehood and statehood, as well as a false history as if title or ownership could be assigned out of thin air. A pure invention ~ Nazi style!
No legal binding authority has empowered anyone ~ No UN organ, including the International Court of Justice, or the Human Rights Council to decide that the territories of the 'West Bank', which should be known as Judea and Samaria, and Gaza could be transformed into "Occupied Palestinian Territories" or even "Palestine." The use of these dishonest, loaded terms by the worlds politicians & media empowers terrorism and the 'Palestinians' with the right to use all measures to expel Israel.
Arabs, the UN and its organs, and lately the International Court of Justice as well, have repeatedly claimed that the Palestinians are a native people ~ so much so that almost everyone now takes it for granted. The problem is that a stateless Palestinian People is a fabrication. The word Palestine is not even Arabic.
Palestine was never an independent state belonging to any people, nor did a Palestinian People distinct from other Arabs appear during 1,300 years of Muslim hegemony in the Palestine Area under Arab and Ottoman rule. During that rule, local Arabs were actually considered part of, and subject to, the authority of Greater Syria (Suriyya al-Kubra). Historically, before the Arabs fabricated the concept of Palestinian peoplehood as an exclusively Arab phenomenon, no such group existed. This is substantiated in countless official British Mandate ~ vintage documents that speak of the Jews and the Arabs of 'Palestine' ~ not Jews and Palestinians. Palestine is, & was a Geographical Area ... Not a Nationality!
And speaking of that Geographical area .... the following is a 'Map' from Palestinian Authority television showing their version of 'Palestine'. And what they require as 'their' land. The land area is in fact the Jewish State of Israel. Where is the Jewish State of Israel to be found on this map .... Nowhere! ..... "Wiped off the Map" ..... literally !!!!
(PMW was established in 1996 to “gain an understanding of Palestinian society through the monitoring of the Palestinian Arabic language media and schoolbooks,” its website states. The organization “analyzes Palestinian Authority culture and society from numerous perspectives, including studies on summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, religious ideology, crossword puzzles, and more. It plays the critical role of documenting the contradictions between the image the Palestinians present to the world in English and the messages to their own people in Arabic.”)
Can anybody logically tell me what would happen if Israel did vacate any territory for peace??? Well, actually, we don't have to guess. We have a concrete example .... Gaza!
Remember Gaza ~ with it's thriving farmlands, Wineries & Orchards ~ it has now become a 'Judenrein' sectarian statelet run by terrorists paid for by World Economic Aid. Would you see that for a 'Judenrein' Israel? Is that your Goal?? It is the goal of the people who profess themselves 'palestinain'!
In fact, before local Jews began calling themselves Israelis in 1948 (when the name "Israel" was chosen for the newly-established Jewish State), the term "Palestine" applied almost exclusively to Jews and the institutions founded by new Jewish immigrants in the first half of the 20th century, before the state's independence.
Some examples include: ~
The Jerusalem Post, the Jewish newspaper founded in 1932, was called 'The Palestine Post' until 1948.
Bank Leumi L'Israel, incorporated in 1902, was called the "Anglo-Palestine Company" until 1948.
The Jewish Agency ~ an arm of the Zionist movement engaged in Jewish settlement since 1929 ~ was initially called 'the Jewish Agency for Palestine'.
Today's Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, founded in 1936 by German Jewish refugees who fled Nazi Germany, was originally called the "Palestine Symphony Orchestra" composed of some 70 Palestinian Jews.
The United Jewish Appeal was established in 1939 as a merger of the United Palestine Appeal and the fundraising arm of the Joint Distribution Committee.
There Has Never Ever Been a Sovereign Arab State in Palestine!
The artificiality of a Palestinian identity is reflected in the attitudes and actions of neighbouring Arabs who never established a Palestinian state or advocated one prior to the Six-Day War in 1967.
Only twice in Jerusalem's history has it served as a National Capital. The first time was as the capital of the two Jewish Commonwealths during the First and Second Temple periods, as described in the Hebrew Bible and Jewish Chroniclar Histories, reinforced by archaeological evidence and numerous other ancient documents. The second time is in modern times as the Capital of the State of Israel. It has never served as an Arab capital for the simple reason that there has never been a Palestinian Arab state.
The rhetoric by Arab leaders on behalf of the 'Palestinians' rings hollow. Arabs never established a Palestinian state when the UN in 1947 recommended to partition Palestine, and to establish "an Arab and a Jewish state" (not a Palestinian state, it should be noted!). Nor did the Arabs recognize or establish a Palestinian state during the two decades prior to the Six-Day War when the 'West Bank' was under Jordanian control and the Gaza Strip was under Egyptian control. Nor did the Palestinian Arabs clamour for autonomy or independence during those years under Jordanian and Egyptian rule.
So much for facts and accuracy. Are these facts Clear enough ? Or Compelling enough??
