What would a "Palestinian" State mean for Jews??


Arab "palestinian" leaders have announced that "the world is about to witness the birth of a Palestinian state" as a result of their bid for a Unilateral Declaration of Independence by the United Nations when the U.N. General Assembly meets in New York City next week.  The United Nations does not have the authority to endow such statehood and cannot "create" a state!!

This has not deterred the Arabs ..... Fatah is urging All Arabs in Israel & in the Middle East to turn September 21st into a day of "national struggle"  ~ a phrase which translates in Arabic as "jihad"   ~ and take to the streets for mass marches, including a march to reclaim Israel's Capital City of Jerusalem!

Maen Areikat, the palestine Liberation Organization's ambassador to the United States said yesterday that any future palestinian state it seeks with help from the United Nations and the United States should be free of Jews ....... "I think it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated" Maen Areikat said.   So an admission ..... palestine would be Judenrein!   Such a state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews since Nazi Germany, which sought a country that was Judenrein ~ cleansed of Jews.   And to add insult to this already eggregious  statement, Elliott Abrams, a former U.S. National Security Council official added that this palestinian demand wass unacceptable and "a despicable form of anti-Semitism ....  A small Jewish presence in a future Palestine, up to 1% of the population, would not hurt the Palestinian identity", he said ..... I am not usually rendered speechless!!!!!

palestinian Authority President and PLO Chairman,  Mahmoud Abbas has bluntly stated “when a palestinian state is established, it would have no Israeli presence in it.”

Hamas is not a member of the PLO  but is also sworn to eliminating the State of Israel by jihad, and this is where it differs with the PLO who favours the approach of acquiring territory in stages as a prelude to a final assault on the Jewish State.  The PLO has made it abundantly clear that it is not prepared to accept the rule of international law, openly declaring in Article 20 of its Charter .....

    “The Balfour Declaration, the Mandate for Palestine, and everything that has been based upon them, are deemed null and void.”

Will United Nations members support such blatant and continuing disregard of international law by the PLO and fail to demand the PLO amend its Charter?

The PLO has also refused to acknowledge the connection of the Jewish people with their ancient biblical and legally sanctioned homeland by stating in Article 20 of its Charter ....

 “Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong."

Will the United Nations endorse any PLO approach whilst it exhibits Jew-hatred on such a scale?

The “complete end of the occupation” referred to by Abbas ~ even in the context of any two-state solution concieved of  ~  means the ethnic cleansing of all Jews living in the newly recognized palestinian State by  forcibly expelling them from their homes where tens of thousands have lived for more than thirty years. And Jews have had a presence for more than 3,300 years. Their right to live there has been sanctioned in international law by Article 6 of the 'Mandate for Palestine' and article 80 of the United Nations Charter.
Member States of the United Nations cannot close their ears or avert their eyes to what Abbas has made very clear  “We have frankly said, and always will say: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we won’t agree to the presence of one Israeli in it,”

Like Hitler ~ he is being truthful.  Will the world whisper its support??

Jews were ethnically cleansed from the Judea, Samaria (Israel's heartlands)  and East Jerusalem following Jordan’s conquest of both areas in 1948 until their return after the Six Day War in 1967.  Abbas has made it clear that he wants to return to the 1948 position ~ by doing as the Jordanians did  ~ eliminating all signs of Jewish life in East Jerusalem and  all of Israel by ethnic cleansing and by destroying Synagogues, desecrating sacred sites and trashing Jewish cemeteries.  Remember that Headstones Hundreds of years old were smashed or used as paving stones for roads & latrines in 1950's Jordanian rule of Jerusalem!!

As the United Nations deliberates on a possible palestinian State along the 1967 lines, it might do well to remember what happened the last time the Arabs occupied East Jerusalem from 1948-1967.  After the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem was captured, the destruction, desecration and systematic looting of Jewish sites began and continued. 57 ancient synagogues (the oldest dated to the 13th century), libraries and centres of religious study were ransacked and 12 were totally and deliberately destroyed. Those that remained standing were defaced, used for housing of both people and animals.  The city’s foremost Jewish shrine, the Western Wall, became a slum. Appeals were made to the United Nations and in the international community to declare the Old City to be an ‘open city’ and stop this destruction, (Rome was declared an open city at the end of WWII), but there was No Response!!! This condition continued until Jordan lost control of Jerusalem in June 1967, when Israel regained it's holiest land, Baruch Ha'Shem!

On the Mount of Olives, the Jordanian Arabs removed 38,000 tombstones from the ancient cemetery and used them as paving stones for roads and as construction material in Jordanian     Army camps, including use as latrines. When the area was recaptured by Israel in 1967, graves were found open with the bones scattered. Parts of the cemetery were converted into parking spaces, a filling station, and an asphalt road was built to cut through it… The Hurva Synagogue, attributed to Rabbi Moses Ben Nahman (Ramban), was the main synagogue in Jerusalem in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries (and possibly much earlier), until the Ottomans closed it in 1589 because of Muslim incitement. It was burned by Arabs in 1721 (Hurva means destruction in Hebrew), but again rebuilt in the 19th century, becoming the most prominent Synagogue in the Jerusalem skyline.    For that reason, when it was captured by the Arab Legion during the battle for Old Jerusalem in 1948, they dynamited it to show that they controlled the Jewish Quarter. The Hurva Synagogoue has now been rebuilt, Baruch Ha'Shem!

Is the United Nations  prepared to signal its willingness to endorse the expulsion of Jews from their current homes in their own land in flagrant violation of the decisions of the League of Nations and the United Nations Charter?   Is the United Nations prepared to Slaughter the Jewish State in the full knowledge of what a "palestinian" state would mean???

  1. Well Pana, desecrating cemeteries is what they do. You have to remember that they do not view us dhimmi as even being human in the first place. Therefore, to desecrate a Jewish (or Christian) cemetery is of no greater moment to them than relocating a landfill.

    When they say they are coming to mow you down, you had better BELIEVE that they will at least TRY. It's not just an empty threat, rhetoric, or hyperbole. Look at what they did to the Christians of Anatolia in 1915. How many millions dead? Who can even count the numbers?

    My warning and advice to Israel (the Land, the People, the Faith) is the following: When they say they are coming, they MEAN it. You must prepare to defend yourselves. Failure to take this seriously could result in Israel suffering the same result as the Armenians less than a century ago. Your continued survival DEPENDS on it.

    Seriously- Observe the mistakes of the Christians decimated in Turkey by the millions and LEARN from it. Do NOT repeat the mistakes of weakness and appeasement. Weakness PROVOKES violent jihad and appeasement will not buy time.
