There is No Such Thing as Palestinian People

Posted by Glezele Vayne on May 11, 2009


There are Arabs who live in a region once called Palestine. There was never a nation called the Palestinian people. This is a modern day myth, created for political purposes…nay, for purposes of stealth warfare. Before the State of Israel was reborn, Jews were called Palestinians.

The native people of this land never called it Palestine. It was either Judea, or Samaria, or the Galilee, or the Negev. It was Eretz Israel.  Romans, famed for gate-crashing raids, invasions, usurpations of native peoples, these Romans named it Palestina as one last dig — against the most troublesome province they’d ever conquered — Judea, who refused to submit to them for any appreciable length of time. This was extremely costly for Rome. In a parting kiss of death, as they murdered, enslaved and exiled most of us, in an attempt to permanently sever us from our land and hopefully destroy us from the face of the earth, they renamed the land Palastina.

The territory is still not a nation called Palestine. Now it is the “disputed territories”, despite the delusions of Arab mapmakers. Don’t believe me?

WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah wrote an article entitled “Palestinian People Do Not Exist

Here’s part of a post at Almost Eden (great photo BTW). I’d love to get my hands on a copy of the article from the Trouw.  As far as I can tell, their internet archives only go back as far as 1992.

“On March 31, 1977 the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. His statements were also later published in the Boston Herald and you’ll find them at various Internet sites as well. Here’s what he said:

‘The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.

‘For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

How does Jordan feel about this statement?

‘King Abdullah in 1948: “Palestine and Jordan are one…

‘Prince Hassan of the Jordanian National Assembly on February 2, 1970: “Palestine is Jordan and Jordan is Palestine; there is only one land, with one history and one and the same fate”.

‘Abdul Hamid Sharif, Prime Minister of Jordan in 1980: “The Palestinians and Jordanians do not belong to different nationalities. They hold the same Jordanian passports, are Arabs and have the same Jordanian culture.”

‘King Hussein in 1981: “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.’

And here’s what a few Arab-Americans have to say:

‘Distinguished Arab-American Princeton University historian Philip Hitti testified before the Anglo-American Committee, ‘There is no such thing as ‘Palestine’ in history.’

However, there were "Indian Nations" when Europeans came to occupy North America, and that can be proven without a doubt. They're still with us, their sovereign life restricted to a mere shadow of what it was when Europeans arrived with a mind to steal from these innocent, overly trusting people.

    So far as I can find, the term “Palestinian People” as applied to the local Arabs in Palestine, first appeared as an invention of the Soviet Union in the preamble to the Charter of the PLO and, prior to 1967, applied only to the local Arabs in Israel proper. Later, after Israel had conquered Judea, Samaria and Gaza, Arafat’s claim was enlarged to cover all the land under the control of Israel.

    It appears that “The Palestinian People” was an invention of the Soviet Union. According to General Ion Pacept, the highest ranking defector from the Soviet bloc during the Cold War, its Charter was drafted in Moscow and the first 428 members of its Council were selected by the KGB. Of several “liberation organizations” organized by the Soviets in the 60s and 70s, such as one for Bolivia, one for Columbia, and one for Armenia, the PLO has been the most successful.
    According to Pacepa, “In March 1978, . . . I secretly brought Arafat to Bucharest to involve him in a long-planned Soviet/Romanian disinformation plot. Its goal was to get the United States to establish diplomatic relations with him, by having him pretend to transform the terrorist PLO into a government-in-exile that was willing to renounce terrorism. Soviet president Leonid Brezhnev believed that newly elected US President Jimmy Carter would swallow the bait.”
    Carter did swallow the bait. So did many of the left wing Israelis.

  2. Clearly both history and their own leaders state the facts that their is no such thing as a palestinian nation, or a palestinian people, or a palestinian arab peoples. I applaud the people here who look through the propaganda and to the facts only!!

    Following the establishment of the fiction of the alleged Palestinian People, and their alleged quest for political self determination, according to General Pacepa, the highest ranking defector from the Soviet bloc during the Cold War, Brezhnev persuaded Arafat to PRETEND to renounce violence and PRETEND to seek peace negotiations. Arafat was reluctant to do so until Brezhnev told him if he did so the West would shower him with gold and glory. It did. Billions, with a large part for his Swiss Accounts, and glory, a Novel Peace Prize. Ceausescu warned him he would have to pretend over and over and over again. He did. Abbas is still pretending. This can only have one meaning: The so called peace process started as a charade and remains a charade.

    Pacepa has been deemed credible by former CIA director James Woolsey. And his story is corroborated by Zahir Muhsein, a member of the Executive Board of the PLO. In 1977 he told the Dutch Newspaper Trouw that there was no such thing as the Palestinian People, that is was a political ploy. He also renounced the alleged quest for political self determination by stating that as soon as the Arabs had wiped out all the Jews, sovereignty would be turned over to Jordan.
