‘Indigenous Palestinian People’ —A Media Driven Fiction
After the Ottoman Empire that enslaved the Balkans for 400 years was ended in 1918, along with the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it was the Serbians who provided the first victory in WWI as American allies—the Serbs help to destroy these two miserable Empires and ended this madness…
Then, 23 years later during WWII when the Nazis liquidated 6 million Jews, the state of Israel was established in 1945 as their homeland—land on which the Jews lived for thousands of years. THERE WAS NO PALESTINIAN NATIONAL IDENTITY OR POLITICAL BORDERS… It was all made up later. Arabs themselves say so, but the West continues to ignore the facts. We don’t wish to offend those who tell these lies and distortions because too many people are totally ignorant of historical facts. However, we are reminded of the words of George Santayana (1863-1952) who coined the phrase, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
At the end of WWI in 1918 the nation of Albania and The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes were formed as a settlement of that war…The Serbs gave up their nationhood, namely Serbia which was granted to them internationally at the Congress of Berlin in 1878, and forced to share their independence with their former enemies.
The costliest untruths of our time are the BILLIONS spent on the notion that the ‘jihad’ waged by Arabs in the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Gaza, against Jews in Israel is “a national struggle of an indigenous people for independence.” By ignoring the facts, the lies persist in obtaining international aid and political prestige, which makes it difficult for anyone involved to admit that the whole thing is nothing more than a propaganda stunt that continues to rob the United States Treasury and the surrounding Arab communities.
Like the fairy tale, ‘The Emperor’s Has No Clothes’, everyone pretends he has flowing robes. This has been so fabricated and absurd that if the Emperor himself stood up and yelled, ‘I am naked, go home!’ the crowd would go on complimenting the beauty of his garments.
“Before the Balfour Promise”, when Ottoman rule [1517-1917] ended, Palestine’s political borders we are asked to believe today DID NOT EXIST, and there was no such thing as a “Palestinian people” with a political identity. Palestine’s lines of administrative division stretched from east to west that included Jordan and Southern Lebanon, and like all peoples of the region [the Palestinians] were liberated from Turkish rule and immediately moved to colonial rule—without forming a Palestinian people’s political identity.
In 1917, everyone who lived in the region called themselves “Palestinians” including many Jews. As Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad said in March 2012 in an interview on Al-Hekma TV: “Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis. Who are the Palestinians?”…he went on to say… “We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian, Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, Cairo, Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians…” There is good reason, why the ‘Palestinian National Museum’ is empty of historical artefacts. They never existed!
The Arab historian, Judith Bergman’s admission in 2017 corroborates the observations of 19th century travelers to the region, who notably had no specific political agenda when they visited, unlike so many visitors to Israel today: “Outside the gates of Jerusalem, we saw no living object, heard no living sound,” wrote French poet Alphonse de Lamartine about his visit in 1835.
“The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is that of a body of population”, wrote British Consul James Finn in his 1857 description of the Holy Land.
American author, Mark Twain wrote about his visit in 1867: “Palestine sits in a sackcloth and ashes. Over it broods the spell of a curse that withered its fields and fettered its energies. …Palestine is desolate and unlovely….It is a hopeless dreary, heartbroken land.”
Nevertheless, the Arab propaganda machine gets away with publishing the immoral falsehoods, such as the one on the Palestinian Authority’s tourism website: “With a history that envelops more than one million years, Palestine has played an important role in human civilization. The crucible of prehistoric cultures, it is where settled society, the alphabet, religion, and literature developed, and would become a meeting place for diverse cultures and ideas that shaped the world we know today.” The international community not only approves of these embellishments of history, it mouths the words then happily pays for their promotion.
Historian Abd Al-Ghani’s declaration on PA TV was a historic, highly newsworthy admission that ought to have made the headlines everywhere, considering the importance the issue is given by political leaders, diplomats, the media and other establishment figures all over the world. After all, if the Arabs themselves admit that the ‘Palestinian people’ are an invention, should the consequence not be the end of these countless UN projects, billions of dollars in international aid, the endless campaigns against Israel and the costs of military weapons, intervention and decades of violence? The answer of course is yes, but no one is paying attention.
We live in a post-factual world, where Social Media lunatics are admired for their instant “pearls of wisdom” about history when most of them have not cracked a history book…Facts no longer have currency, when race, color of skin, refugee status and feelings of minority persecution have greater value than facts and history. The troubling inconvenience of truth, if it happens to stare you in the face, could be no easier than simply closing your eyes.
