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:
are the Palestinians?
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
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!

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?
