From: FARAH’S CALLOUS “FINAL SOLUTION” FOR PALESTINE, by Ted Pike (TruthTellers.org)
Farah: “There has never been an actual country called Palestine in the history of the world.”
Fact: Just three years before the 1917 Balfour Declaration, the Arab population in Palestine, including Christian Arabs, was counted at 634,133. For at least a century, they yearned for national freedom denied by Ottoman Turkish rulers. Hoping for independence, Palestinians, along with the Arab world, allied with the British under Lawrence of Arabia. He promised them independence if they helped defeat the Turks, allies of the Germans. [Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turkish rule of 1916–18 – ed.]
Much to the shame and regret of Lawrence, his promise to Palestinian Arabs was betrayed, starting with the secret 1915 Sykes-Picot Treaty and the Balfour Declaration which granted Britain rights to oversee creation of a Jewish state within Arab territory.
After 30 more years of Arab protest (and riots) against Zionist expansion, the United Nations set October 1, 1948 as the date for establishment of a Palestinian state. This came to nothing after Israeli terrorist organizations massacred innocent Arabs at Deir Yassin and assaulted other Arab cities and towns, eventually driving 800,000 Palestinians into UN-run concentration camps.
The Palestinians never had their longed-for nation, but only because of Zionist betrayal by the West. It is not because the Palestinians lacked the numbers or vision to have created one, either after World War I or World War II.
(video) Miko Peled: Israeli General’s Son – Geneva 5/14/14 — “Israeli historians have been validating what Palestinians have said all along. It was not the Palestinians that began an assault. The Zionist militia began a massive campaign against an unarmed civilian population that lasted for twelve months with the CLEAR INTENTION of completing the ETHNIC CLEANSING of Palestine.”
(video) “Life In Occupied Palestine,” Anna Baltzer: A wonderfully moving introduction to the plight of the Palestinians, in simple, everyday terms — Checkpoints, settlements, Israeli activism, 1948 War refugees, censorship, the Wall, ongoing annexation of Palestinian land — “It is five times more likely for an ISRAELI SOLDIER to commit SUICIDE than to be killed in a terrorist attack. So when people talk about this occupation as helping the Jewish people, they don’t realize how many Israelis are actually against it, and how IMPORTANT it is FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS WELL AS the PALESTINIAN people to end this”
(video) Alison Weir: History of the Israeli Palestinian Conflict — “Come to Palestine, Americans, and see your tax dollars at work, millions and millions of them, every day, and weep with me for our victims…”
(video) Inside Israel’s Pro-War Nationalist Camp — WE’RE HUMANS; THEY’RE ANIMALS” — Israeli soldier • “The most moral thing to do is to FLATTEN GAZA into a parking lot” — fmr. ISRAELI *PARLIAMENT* MEMBER • “A Jew is a soul; an Arab is a…”
Jews for Justice: The Origin of the Palestine-Israel Conflict — The root cause is clear. During the 1948 war, 750,000 Palestinians fled in terror or were actively expelled from their ancestral homeland and turned into refugees. The state of Israel then refused to allow them to return and either destroyed their villages entirely or expropriated their land, orchards, houses, businesses and personal possessions for the use of the Jewish population. This was the birth of the state of Israel.
Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘Christians’ have two sets of books: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If ‘THEY’ didn’t take down the towers…???
