A Fairytale About Fictitious People In A Make Believe Land…or The Myth Known As The So Called ‘Palestinians’
“Like Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, the Palestinians are a more modern fictitious people; like Smurfs, Hobbets and, more recently the Navi from the movie Avatar. (actually, Smurfs and Palestinians emerged at about the same time period)
However, the Palestinians are more closely related to the Boogey Man, Frankenstein, Pumpkinhead, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. They were specifically created to scare, intimidate and terrorize Jews and give people a victim and at the same time give a monster/creature in which to embody their hatred of Jews. In legend, the Palestinians were set loose in the world about 1968 to wreak havoc in the land of Israel, conduct hijackings, take hostages and conduct bombings. In more recent times, this has been expanded to include rocket attacks and suicide bombers.
Many parents have adopted the legend of the Palestinians to induce errant children to behave with the admonition “If you keep acting like that, you’ll turn into a Palestinian!”
Just as Santa Clause lives at a fictitious village/city at the North Pole, the Palestinians lived in a fictitious place called Palestine that was co-opted from an invention of the Roman’s to name a region under its domain which included the real countries of: Israel, northern Egypt, southern Lebanon, part of Syria, most of Mesopotamia and others.
Palestinian ancient artifacts are closely related to the Leprechaun’s Pot O’ Gold; said to exist at the end of rainbows. However, like the Pot O’ Gold, there is no actual end of the rainbow for one to find it.
Ancient Palestinian language does not exist, therefore we must assume from the legend that they were a race of mutes. Their ancient writings do not exist, therefore we must assume from the legend that they were illiterate.
In the modern mythology of the Palestinians, it has been incorporated into a cos-play type of lifestyle like, Vampires, Werewolves, Fairies, and other role playing games. Unlike the role playing game which is carried out in virtual reality; like Dungeons and Dragons or World of Warcraft, or specifically designed venues like conventions, comicons, furcons and such, Palestinian role play takes place in the real world using the entire world as its venue for play; this often causes the incorporation of people not involved in the lifestyle.
The fictitious Palestinian, and the role playing game has also been expanded to include supporters called “Pro-Palestinian Supporters”. These “supporters are closely related to Star Trek and Star Wars geeks who are in their late 20′s to 50′s and still live with their parents carving out a life in the basements. The lack of direct sunlight may explain their aberrant behavior like, participating in protests and flotillas. This is all done by the players in an effort to expand the game into other areas like: The United Nations, CAIR, Code Pink, Amnesty International, 9/11 Conspiracy Nuts, Ron Paul Supporters, The Muslim Brotherhood and, more recently, Occupy Wall Street.”
* So let’s review: There is no such thing as a Palestinian! There never was, nor has there ever been a Palestine or Palestinians! Just because you call yourself something, does not make it true! I can paint myself blue, hold 4 tires and take up residency in your garage, but a car it does not make me, nor does it mean I have entitlement to your garage!
No where in recorded history has there ever been a language known as Palestinian, or any Palestinian culture distinct from that of all the Arabs in the area. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians and there has never been a King or Emperor that has ever been a ruler of that fictitious land. Nor has there ever been a Palestinian currency, relics or any history what so ever. “Palestinians” are Arabs indistinguishable from Arabs throughout the Middle East. The great majority of Arabs in the modern day Palestinian authority and in Israel share the same culture, language and religion.
The modern Arab-Israeli conflict is the culmination of more than a century of ignorance, hatred, arrogance and a near suicidal unwillingness on the part of Arabs to compromise with the existence of a Jewish state, despite the fact that the area on which it sits has been the ancestral homeland of the Jews since 2000 years before Muhammad was even born.
In the 3500 years since Moses and the first establishment of Israel, many other empires have come and gone in the region, yet the Jewish people have always maintained a presence in the land that is sacred to them and has always been their homeland. And historical and archeological evidence from secular, Jewish and Arab excavations have proven this to be true.
The Origin Of The Name ‘Palestine’
Modern day Israel was once called Judea over 2000 years ago, in the early years of Roman rule. The Romans put down Jewish revolts in A.D. 70 and A.D. 132. Then in A.D. 135, the Romans drove the Jews out of Jerusalem, following the failed Bar Kochba revolt. “The Roman Authority” then named the area Palaestina at this time. The name Palaestina, (which became Palestine in English), is derived from Herodotus, who used the term Palestine Syria to refer to the entire southern part of Syria, meaning “Philistine Syria.”
In recent history the area called Palestine includes the territories of present day Israel and Jordan, From 1517 to 1917 most of this area remained under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire was dissolved at the end of World War I. Its successor, modern republic of Turkey, transferred Palestine to British Empire control under the Lausanne agreement that followed WW I.
In 1917 Great Britain issued the Balfour Declaration for “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people”. In 1922 Britain allocated nearly 80% of Palestine to Transjordan. Thus, Jordan covers the majority of the land of Palestine under British Mandate. Jordan also includes the majority of the Arabs who lived there. In other words, Jordan is the Arab portion of Palestine. The residents of Palestine are called “Palestinians”. Since Palestine includes both modern day Israel and Jordan both Arab and Jewish residents of this area were referred to as “Palestinians”.
It was only after WW2 that the Jews re-inhabited their historic homeland of Judea and Samaria that was given back to them as part of the UN Charter agreement, and that’s when that the myth of an Arab Palestinian nation was created and marketed worldwide. Jews come from Judea, not Palestine. Much of the Arab population in this area actually migrated into Israel and Judea and Samaria from the surrounding Arab countries in the past 100 years as refugees from Arab wars and the Jews were than willing to accept them.
What some refer to as “Palestinians” are really nothing more than Arab /Jordan /Syrian refugees that were taken in by Israel. But they would be later used as pawns by the surrounding Arab nations who didn’t want them back after losing the 6 day war where the Arab nations tried to push the Jewish people out of their homeland again. Many of these Arabs lived side by side with Jews peacefully in Israel, until they decided to turn on the Jews during the Israel War of Independence in 1948! Leaving many of these Arabs displaced after the war, because they could no longer be trusted by Israel. One small note… there is only one nation that has Arabs and Muslims represented in the their Government: Israel. No Arab or Muslim country or state out of the 52 that surround Israel ( a state the size of New Jersey) and wish it to be destroyed, can say they have Jews represented in their government. As a matter of fact, very few Arab or Muslim nations even have Jewish citizens left in their countries…. I wonder why?
