Except there really are NO SUCH THINGS as Palestinians. Another cure little invention by these other "terrorist" states as a weapon to take over Israeli land.

"Displaced arabs" would be more apropos. Maybe you should ask why these people can't return to the countries they came from in the first place.

You cannot return to a place you never came from in the first place. These people have been living in Palestine (after it was named by the Romans) for generations. This cannot be claimed by the Europeans that cry God gave us this land.

Please read the essay from the link I posted. I think you'll find out your thinking on this matter is completely wrong from a historical context.

A couple of excepts from the essay:



What other Arabs declared after the Six-Day War:

"There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity... yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel".

- Zuhair Muhsin, military commander of the PLO and member of the PLO Executive Council -

"You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there is no Palestinian entity, there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people, Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people".

- Syrian dictator Hafez Assad to the PLO leader Yassir Arafat -

"As I lived in Palestine, everyone I knew could trace their heritage back to the original country their great grandparents came from. Everyone knew their origin was not from the Canaanites, but ironically, this is the kind of stuff our education in the Middle East included. The fact is that today's Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today's Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, muslim Sherkas from Russia, muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. My grandfather, who was a dignitary in Bethlehem, almost lost his life by Abdul Qader Al-Husseni (the leader of the Palestinian revolution) after being accused of selling land to Jews. He used to tell us that his village Beit Sahur (The Shepherds Fields) in Bethlehem County was empty before his father settled in the area with six other families. The town has now grown to 30,000 inhabitants".

- Walid Shoebat, an "ex-Palestinian" Arab -


Quote frankly, I don't care what anyone else thinks. Palestine is a myth and political tool to be used against Israel. In fact, I hope it makes a lot of you on here angry. Darkness hates the light and the truth.

I for one do not think Israel is a terrorist Nation. I do however view the Zionist agenda as a fundamentalist movement similar to other groups labeled Terrorist for there actions. Israel's government has over stepped more times than one can count. Israel at this point is damned if it does and really damned if it doesn't. There needs to be new blood in the government. Changes must take root for it to truly survive. There is no doubt that Israel is under constant threat at all times. Who started it no longer matters. The current Israeli government perpetuates a fair amount of enemies.

Israel is no position to take a moral high ground though. Nor does anyone else who is attacking it. The whole lot need to take a step back and work together. However, one or both sides always sabotage the peace process and have demands and expectations that the other is not willing or cannot agree to.

I do know that Israel has offered a great deal for there expectations over the decades though. It's an up and down situation. War is inevitable for Israel and save the souls who are caught in the middle or oppose Israel because it will never give up or in to any threat.

I, for one, have never learned to displace pity with anger. Maybe others have.

There can be no other way to put it.

I have been under the impression that those who come to this site have, more or less, taken on the creed of "deny ignorance".
The attitude which some take on is quite the opposite. They incourage ignorance with their open displays of dogmatic adherance to some self serving points which, it seems, they think should trump all other points of discussion.
I have often been told, and I think I have heard it said here, that if one argues with a fool they only succeed in lowering themselves to that level.
I do enjoy the discussions which I find here at this site. That is until the people which I have just discribed insist upon their's being the only point of view.

thank you for the video.




The term Peleset (transliterated from hieroglyphs as P-r-s-t) is found in numerous Egyptian documents referring to a neighboring people or land starting from c.1150 BCE during the Twentieth dynasty of Egypt.




The first clear use of the term Palestine to refer to the entire area between Phoenicia and Egypt was in 5th century BC Ancient Greece.





Herodotus wrote of a 'district of Syria, called Palaistinê" in The Histories, the first historical work clearly defining the region...

just read the words in bold if you're too lazy to read the list. I just really don't believe lots of people here actually read the list. I wish the mods would replace the OP with this spaced out and bolded version so newcomers will find it easier to read.

No, sir, I don't NOT agree with your post and find it 100% biased towards the destruction of Israel as a nation. In fact, I am personally offended by the dribble you have posted and have asked the mods to remove this thread. It has no place on ATS.


Funniest thing I read all day. Someone gives 3 posts full of U.N. Condemnations against a country due to their aggressive behavior and you are offended by the dribble and want it removed. Care to refute any of it? Is it all lies?

I don't usually weigh into middle east issues, but over the years I've seen a trend and I have to call it as I see it.

Since I was a youngling, I've witnessed a lot of US diplomats 'in talks' with Netanyahu at one one point or another, and Arafat was the man that was ostracized, and recent evidence shows that Yasser could've been poisoned.

I can't speak for everyone, but that is what I saw. In my opinion certain factions favor Israel for reasons that are beyond my understanding, and if peace is to be achieved it cannot be done by favoring one side over another.

I do deny ignorance, except when people present political diatribe as evidence to support the continuous terrorist attacks against a nation who should be allowed to exist peacefully, without having to go back to the '67 borders or further than that.

I am not trying to argue with "fools" (have YOU been fooled?), but believe in my position 100%. No NATION is perfect and certainly no HUMAN. Therefore, BOTH are prone to make mistakes and misjudgements, sometimes with disastrous consequences. But I will not see a topic like this (i.e. WHY ISRAEL SHOULD BE WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH...and if you don't get that message then I can't help you anyway), floated to the top of the trending topics, whereby anyone who speaks up for Israel is a jew lover or zionist.

I have read numerous "other points of view" and have even entertained these to some degree, but I don't accept that palestine is a nation that has always existed. Is is a tool to be used against Israel. Unfortunately, as time goes on, people forget and start to blindly accept whatever crap is furthered by various media outlets.

When is the last time you heard on the news that Jerusalem is the holiest site for Christians compared to how Jerusalem is the third holiest site for muslims? Sick and tired of the demonizing of one tiny nation in a sea of terrorists.
