The Palestinians

"...Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism."
[PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein said in an interview with the Dutch newspaper "Trau" (March 31, 1977),]

Palestinians doubt Blair can deliver," announces the BBC. "Four Palestinians die in West Bank," reports CNN. "IDF demolishes building used by Palestinian gunmen," announces Israel's government run Channel 1 News. The modern media is filled with stories about the Palestinians, their plight, their dilemmas and their struggles. All aspects of their lives seem to have been put under the microscope only one question never seems to be addressed:

Who are the Palestinians?

Who are these people who claim the Holy Land as their own? What is their history? Where did they come from? How did they arrive in the country they call Palestine? Now that both US President George Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon have come out in favor of a Palestinian state, it would be prudent to seek answers to these questions.

The Palestian people are a mixture of Arab peoples, and they happen to live in a region called Palestine. They were not a separate people. There never was a serious Arab-Palestinian national movement until 1964... three years BEFORE the Arabs of "Palestine" lost the West Bank [Judea and Samaria] and Gaza  as a result of the 1967 Six-Day War. Even the leader of the "Palestinian" people, Yasser Arafat, is EGYPTIAN!


PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein
said in an interview with the Dutch newspaper "Trau" (March 31, 1977),

"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."

The Arabs living in Syria or Jordan, etc., are also the same Arabs, but they are each a separate nation because they each have a separate country. The Palestinians want a separate country because they are now a separate nation. They were never a separate people before the new state of Israel.

Because of these lies, the Palestinians feel justified in sending suicide bombers to kill women, children, babies, old men, old women and noncombatant citizens. Because of these lies, the United Nations and the media of the world are condemning Israel who is acting less harshly than any other country would act in retaliation for such heinous attacks. What is the United States doing in Afghanistan, a totally foreign country? Killing Afghanis. Why? Because they attacked the US on Sept. 11. The world understand this. But why does the world not understand that that is exactly what Israel is doing, only on a much smaller scale?
