“Historic Palestine”

Posted by avideditor on January 7, 2010

“Historic Palestine”: “One of the well-worn memes of the anti-Israel crowd is that Israel is only offering 14%, or 12%, of ‘Historic Palestine’ to the Palestinian Arabs. For example, here is a small sample of how the phrase has been used in recent days:

What remains to the Palestinians now is less than 14% of Historic Palestine, all of it as isolated Bantustans, shrinking ghettos, walls, fences, checkpoints with surly soldiers,and the perpetual encroachment of expanding illegal Israeli colonies. Read the rest of this entry »

I think Netanyahu just sold out Israel. Did Netanyahu just sell out Israel?

Posted by avideditor on June 14, 2009

I am sorry but any call for a “pali” state in Israel is a sell out. The jihadis can do there best to rewrite history but they are not going to fool me. Jordan was created for the muslim. Israel for the jews. I hope his speach point that out but it did not.

Israel is still playing the price for giving up the Gaza Strip. Giving the muslims any more of Israel is a mistake. IMHO

Certain bloggers I used to look up to disagree with me. I draw a line in the sand on this Issue. Israel should never trade any land for peace IMHO. Read other views at Atlas or Holiger Awakens I hope they change their minds soon before they mislead other with their poisonous interpretation.

You can read the transcript below.

There are people that I used to respect making the assertion that his speaech was

Honored guests, citizens of Israel.
Peace has always been our people’s most ardent desire. Our prophets gave the world the vision of peace, we greet one another with wishes of peace, and our prayers conclude with the word peace.

We are gathered this evening in an institution named for two pioneers of peace, Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat, and we share in their vision.

President Abbas The Temple Mount is 100% Muslim

Posted by avideditor on June 2, 2008

 

I found this on Yid with a Lid it is a good read. It is time for Israel to kick the jihadis out of Israel. No peace can be made with mad men like these that don’t respect jewish life or history. 

Moderate President Mahmoud Abbas’ Chief of Staff had a message of war for its “negotiating peace partner today:

 

Jerusalem and the Temple Mount belong to the Muslims and any Israeli action that “offends” the Mount will be answered by 1.5 billion Muslims, declared the chief of staff for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. “Jerusalem is Muslim. The blessed Al Aqsa mosque and Harem Al Sharif (Temple Mount) is 100 percent Muslim. The Israelis are playing with fire when they threaten Al Aqsa with digging that is taking place,” said Abbas’ chief of staff Rafiq Al Husseini.

 

Gee whiz that sounds like a precondition to me. And it also goes against the history of the temple mount, as recently as 150 years ago Islam’s “Third Holiest Site” Was treated link a Slum Zone. Here’s a quick look at the Mount’s history after the second Temple.

 

 

70 CE 2nd Temple destroyed

 

135 CE Bar Kochba revolt and attempt to build 3rd temple quelled. Romans change the name of the country to Palestinia (that’s where the name Palestine comes from)

 

330 CE “Traveler of Bordeaux” visits Jerusalem and relates Jews praying on Temple Mount.

 

330-640 CE The Temple Mount becomes a garbage dump (that where the name Dung Gate comes from). This is done because the Christians try to teach the Jews that the covenant is over. When I visited Jerusalem, my guide told me that during this time Jews were only allowed up on the mount once a year: Tisha B’av.

 

362 CE Pope Julian authorizes Jews build third Temple, work destroyed by a fire or earthquake or both.

 

440 CE Hieronymus describes Jews mourning on top of Temple Mount.

 

680-700 CE Old wooden El Aksa Mosque constructed, 700 CE, and Dome of the Rock by Abd el-Malik, 684-690 CE.

 

940 CE Karaite scribe Salomon ben Yerucham writes of synagogues within Temple Mount courtyard.

 

1030 CE Rabbi Shlomo ben Yehuda describes Jewish custom of encircling Temple Mount.

 

1099-1187 Crusaders take Jerusalem/ Violent conquest of Holy Land in the name of Christianity. Many Jews and Moslems murdered. Jews sold into slavery and banished from Jerusalem. Dome of the Rock reconsecrated as “Temple Domini” and El Aksa as “Temple Salomonis.”

 

1100 CE Rabbi Avraham bar Chaya writes of synagogues on Temple Mount.

 

1165 CE Maimonides visits Jerusalem and prays on Temple Mount.

 

1187 CE Moslems Retake Jerusalem. Dome of the Rock and El Aksa restored to Islam. Icons removed. 1190, walls overlaid with marble inscriptions added in Arabic. Non-Moslems no longer permitted on Mount.

 

1188-1867 CE Jerusalem deteriorates. Described by visitors as a wasteland:

 

 

Nothing there [Jerusalem] to be seen but a little of the old walls which is yet remaining and all the rest is grass, moss and weeds. [English pilgrim in 1590]

 

The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population. [British consul in 1857]

 

There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent [valley of Jezreel] — not for 30 miles in either direction… One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. … For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee … Nazareth is forlorn … Jericho lies a moldering ruin … Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation… untenanted by any living creature… A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds … a silent, mournful expanse … a desolation … We never saw a human being on the whole route … Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil had almost deserted the country … Of all the lands there are for dismal scenery Palestine must be the prince. The hills barren and dull, the valleys unsightly deserts [inhabited by] swarms of beggars with ghastly sores and malformations. Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes … desolate and unlovely … [Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad, 1867]

 

 

 

1866 CE Jews once again become the Majority in Jerusalem.

 

1967 CE Six Day War: Jews Retake (and Give back) Temple Mount.

 

History is important. We learn about people’s true intentions from history. Abbas and his gang of terrorists are trying to “protect” a Holy Site that until 150 years ago a dump with a Mosque. It is interesting that the Temple Mount didn’t become important enough to Islam, until Jews became the Majority in Jerusalem.

 

This isn’t about a Mosque on a Hill. It’s about keeping any other faith from having a legacy to the land. Moslems in Israel pray five times a day facing Mecca, when they do that their butts are facing their supposed “third most holy site” on top of the Temple Mount. Three times a day Jews in Israel (and all overt the world) face the temple mount to pray, begging Hashem to rebuild the Holy Temple on top. For us there is no other place even close to its status of Holiness. Read the rest of this entry »

Boycott MSNBC and Buy Dunkin’ Donuts: Olbermann is clueless and support what the Kaffiyeh stands for the genocide of the Jewish people

Posted by avideditor on May 29, 2008

Rachel Ray was clearly wearing a pro Jihadi scarf. Olmermann supports Hezbollah, Hamas, and other terrorist and he has the audacity to call people exposing Jihadist the most like them. Olbermann is full of lies. He is a terrorist supporter. Every time I see some one wearing a Kaffiyeh I ask them if they support terrorist. Every time they say they support the “Palistinian struggle” against Israel. If you don’t believe me ask the next person wearing a Kadifah yourself. Wearing that scarf means you support the “Palestinian” effort to kill all the jews. Dunkin’ Donuts did the right thing by pulling that ad. If Dunkin’ Donuts was kosher I would eat there every day. They did the right thing by standing up against the Jihadis attempt of genocide against Jews. May G-d bless Dunkin’ Donuts and everyone else that takes a stand against terrorism. Watch the terrorist loving Olbermann preach his lies and hate.

The Guardian – Monday May 26 2008 Article history

Britain and other European governments should break from the US over the international embargo on Gaza, former US president Jimmy Carter told the Guardian yesterday. Carter, visiting the Welsh border town of Hay for the Guardian literary festival, described the EU’s position on the Israeli-Palestinian dispute as “supine” and its failure to criticise the Israeli blockade of Gaza as “embarrassing”.

Referring to the possibility of Europe breaking with the US in an interview with the Guardian, he said: “Why not? They’re not our vassals. They occupy an equal position with the US.”

The blockade on Hamas-ruled Gaza, imposed by the US, EU, UN and Russia – the so-called Quartet – after the organisation’s election victory in 2006, was “one of the greatest human rights crimes on Earth,” since it meant the “imprisonment of 1.6 million people, 1 million of whom are refugees”. “Most families in Gaza are eating only one meal per day. To see Europeans going along with this is embarrassing,” Carter said.

He called on the EU to reassess its stance if Hamas agreed to a ceasefire in Gaza. “Let the Europeans lift the embargo and say we will protect the rights of Palestinians in Gaza, and even send observers to Rafah gate [Gaza’s crossing into Egypt] to ensure the Palestinians don’t violate it.”

Although it is 27 years since he left the White House, Carter recently met Hamas leaders in Damascus. He declared a breakthrough in persuading the organisation to offer a Gaza ceasefire and a halt to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel if Israel stopped its air and ground strikes on the territory.

Carter described western governments’ self-imposed ban on talking to Hamas as unrealistic and said everyone knew Israel was negotiating with the organisation through an Egyptian mediator, Omar Suleiman. Suleiman took the Hamas ceasefire offer to Jerusalem last week.

Israel was still hesitating over the ceasefire, Carter confirmed yesterday. “I talked to Mr Suleiman the day before yesterday. I hope the Israelis will accept,” he said.

While being scrupulously polite to the Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas, and prime minister, Salam Fayyad, who represent the Fatah movement, he was scathing about their exclusion of Hamas. He described the Fatah-only government as a “subterfuge” aimed at getting round Hamas’s election victory two years ago. “The top opinion pollster in Ramallah told me the other day that opinion on the West Bank is shifting to Hamas, because people believe Fatah has sold out to Israel and the US,” he said.

Carter said the Quartet’s policy of not talking to Hamas unless it recognised Israel and fulfilled two other conditions had been drafted by Elliot Abrams, an official in the national security council at the White House. He called Abrams “a very militant supporter of Israel”. The ex-president, whose election-monitoring Carter Centre had just certified Hamas’s election victory as free and fair, addressed the Quartet for 12 minutes at its session in London in 2006. He urged it to talk to Hamas, which had offered to form a unity government with Fatah, the losers.

“The Quartet’s final document had been drafted in Washington in advance, and not a line was changed,” he said.

Earlier, Carter, told Sky News that Hillary Clinton should abandon her battle to become Democratic presidential candidate after the last round of primaries in early June. Like many superdelegates, he has yet to declare his support for either Clinton or Barack Obama, but he suggested the outcome of the race was a foregone conclusion. “I think that a lot of us superdelegates will make a decision … quite rapidly, after the final primary on June 3,” he said. “I think at that point it will be time for her to give it up.”

Last night, before a packed crowd at Hay, Carter spoke of his “horror” at America’s involvement in torturing prisoners, saying he wanted the next US president to promise never to do so again.

He left an intriguing hint that George Bush might even face prosecution on war crimes charges once he left office.

When pressed by Philippe Sands QC on Bush’s recent admission that he had authorised interrogation procedures widely seen as amounting to torture, Carter replied that he was sure Bush would be able to live a peaceful, “productive life – in our country”.

Sands, an international legal expert, said afterwards that he understood that to be “clear confirmation” that while Bush would face no challenge in his own country, “what happened outside the country was another matter entirely”.

Nakba Means There’s No Palestine

Posted by avideditor on May 13, 2008

I found this great essay at Israel National News.

Read my recent essay on this for my views.  

 

by Prof. Steven Plaut

 

The real origin of the term Nakba.

Over the past few years, the term Nakba (also spelled Naqba) has become the favorite nonsense word of the Anti-Israel Lobby. Meaning “catastrophe” in Arabic, it has been embraced by anti-Semites all over the planet to refer to Israel’s creation, which supposedly imposed a “catastrophe” upon the “disenfranchised Palestinian Arabs.”

Of course, the real catastrophe that befell the Arabs in 1948-49 was that they failed in their attempt to annihilate Israel and exterminate its population, and for that they paid a price.

Meanwhile, Nakba Nonsense has been spreading. Google finds over 85,000 web pages referring to Israel’s creation as a nakba, and a Yahoo! search finds even more than that. The anti-Israel web magazineCounterpunch cannot mention Israel without using the term. Even Israel’s leftist Minister of Education, Yuli Tamir, has ordered that the Nakba be taught as part of the curriculum in Israeli schools, where Israel’s schoolchildren can be taught to mourn their own country’s existence. Nakba ceremonies are now held each year by those leftist professors at Israeli universities who mourn the very creation of their country.

The nakba of the late 1940s and 1950s that befell large numbers of Jews living in Arab countries, who were suddenly expelled, persecuted and stripped of their property, does not interest such people. Those Jewish refugees made new homes in Israel and actually outnumbered the Palestinians who fled Israel.

Meanwhile, an urban legend has been fabricated about the origin of the term Nakba – a fairy tale that claims the word was a banner waved by Palestinians starting in 1948, and that its very use shows how deep the roots of “Palestinian nationality” go. So, here is a little current events quiz: What is the real origin of the term Nakba and what is its original meaning?

If you get the answer to the quiz wrong – in other words, if you say it refers to the events of 1948 – then you are in very good company. I myself would have flunked the quiz up until a few days ago, when I stumbled on the correct answer. Not only does the bandying about of the nakba nonsense word not point to any “depth of the roots of Palestinian nationality,” it proves the very opposite: namely, that there is no such thing as a Palestinian nation or nationality at all.

The authoritative source on the origin of Nakba is none other than George Antonius, supposedly the first “official historian of Palestinian nationalism.” Like so many “Palestinians,” he actually wasn’t (Palestinian, that is). He was a Christian Lebanese-Egyptian who lived for a while in Jerusalem, where he composed his official advocacy/history of Arab nationalism. The Arab Awakening, a highly biased book, was published in 1938 and for years afterward was the official text used at British universities.

Antonius was an “official Palestinian representative” to Britain, trying to argue the cause for creating an Arab state in place of any prospective homeland promised the Jews under the Balfour Declaration of 1917. By the 1930s, Antonius was an active anti-Zionist propagandist and, as such, was offered a job at Columbia University (where some things don’t seem to change much). He served as an academic fig leaf for xenophobic Arab nationalists seeking to deny Jews any right to self-determination in or migration to the Land of Israel. And he was closely associated with the Grand Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini, Hitler’s main Islamic ally, and also with the pro-German regime in Iraq in the early 1940s.

Antonius was so passionately anti-Zionist that he continues to serve as the hero and mentor of Jewish leftist anti-Zionists everywhere. For example, the late Hebrew University sociology professor Baruch Kimmerling relied on Antonius at length in his own pseudo-history, Palestinians: The Making of a People (Free Press, 1993).

So how does Antonius provide us with the answer to the current events quiz concerning the origin of Nakba?

The term was not invented in 1948, but rather in 1920. And it was coined not because of Palestinians suddenly getting nationalistic, but because Arabs living in Palestine regarded themselves as Syrian and were enraged at being cut off from their Syrian homeland.

At the end of World War I, Britain and France divided the spoils of the Ottoman Empire between them. Britain got Palestine, including what is now Jordan, while France got Lebanon and Syria. The problem was that the Palestinian Arabs saw themselves as Syrians and were seen as such by other Syrians. The Palestinian Arabs were enraged that an artificial barrier was being erected within their Syrian homeland by the infidel colonial powers – one that would divide northern Syrian Arabs from southern Syrian Arabs, the latter being those who were later misnamed “Palestinians.”

The bulk of the Palestinian Arabs had in fact migrated to Palestine from Syria and Lebanon during the previous two generations, largely to benefit from the improving conditions and job opportunities afforded by Zionist immigration and capital flowing into the area. In 1920, both sets of Syrian Arabs, those in Syria and those in Palestine, rioted violently and murderously.

On page 312 of The Arab Awakening, Antonius writes: “The year 1920 has an evil name in Arab annals: it is referred to as the Year of the Catastrophe (Aam An-Nakba). It saw the first armed risings that occurred in protest against the post-War settlement imposed by the Allies on the Arab countries. In that year, serious outbreaks took place in Syria, Palestine, and Iraq.”

The original Nakba had nothing to do with Jews, and nothing to do with demands by Palestinian Arabs for self-determination, independence and statehood. To the contrary, it had everything to do with the fact that the Palestinian Arabs saw themselves as Syrians. They rioted at this nakba – at this catastrophe – because they found deeply offensive the very idea that they should be independent from Syria and Syrians. In the 1920s, the very suggestion that Palestinian Arabs constituted a separate ethnic nationality was enough to send those same Arabs out into the streets to murder and plunder violently in outrage.

If they themselves insisted they were simply Syrians who had migrated to the Land of Israel, by what logic are the Palestinian Arabs deemed entitled to their own state today? Palestinian Arabs are no more a nation and no more entitled to their own state than are the Arabs of Detroit or of Paris.

Speaking of Palestinians as Syrians, it is worth noting what one of the early Syrian nationalists had to say. The following quote comes from the great-grandfather of the current Syrian dictator, Bashar Assad:

“Those good Jews brought civilization and peace to the Arab Muslims, and they dispersed gold and prosperity over Palestine without damage to anyone or taking anything by force. Despite this, the Muslims declared holy war against them and did not hesitate to massacre their children and women…. Thus, a black fate awaits the Jews and other minorities in case the Mandates are canceled and Muslim Syria is united with Muslim Palestine.”

That statement is from a letter sent to the French prime minister in June 1936 by six Syrian Alawi notables (the Alawis are the ruling class in Syria today) in support of Zionism. Bashar’s great-grandfather was one of them (hat tip to Daniel Pipes for reference).

See pictures of jihadis and brain washed lefties remembering the “catastrophe” in that the arabs didn’t push the jews into the sea. Looking at Barack Obama’s recent comments it looks like he would join these loons. It just makes me sick. People should counter protest these loons so they don’t infect the rest of the population with there dangerous delusions.

Peace love and anti-semitism

Posted by avideditor on March 24, 2008

Due it indoctrination in my university, I used to be a crazy lefty. The extreme anti semitism of the movement woke me up to the lies of the left. I am sure if you read my blog you know where I stand now. Check out this great movie shows how anti-semitism has taken over the American Left. 

Barack Obama’s pastor shares the same views. And despite what Barack Obama is saying now his past actions show that he is inline with the anti-Semitic left

UPDATE: It look like the leftists are spreading their hate of the jews: Anti-Semitism on the Rise in Europe
