I don't see how that supported your view.
You denied that there ever was a nation called Palestine while there it was.
A nation? Nothing supports your claim of this revisionist view, and despite you best efforts to sway from this point, by offering skewed perspectives
to indicate otherwise, these facts still remain ever so clear even within the documentation you are offering. I read that Doc. I reviewed it with
considerations for both peoples. I saw exactly what you refered to, but the Introduction to the overview of the whole matter, clearly denotes,
Palestine did not become a nation. What do you wish to me say? Deny Historical Fact solely to ensure your view of this is promoted, despite even
offering your own evidence which clearly states that your view is wrong? I don't know.
It may not have been indepenedent, but I never implied that it was.
And yes you have. CONSISTANLTLY in respects to this. From the days of the Romans until 1948, this region has been a protectorate under many forms of
rule. This in no way, makes Palestine a nation or state. A people living under occupation of Foreign Rule. You have stated in all of your responses,
until this point, that Palestine was a Nation. It never was and to this day, it remains as such. An area under occupation.
Palestine existed as a nation under British occupation, and that is where the word comes from as used by Palestinians today.
The term Palestine is derived from the name of the Philistines, a people of uncertain origins, possibly Aegean, who, in the 12th century BCE, settled
along the southern Mediterranean coastal plain of what is now Israel and the Gaza Strip and disappeared several centuries later. After crushing Bar
Kokhba's revolt (132-135), the Romans Latinized the hitherto seldom-used Greek name Palaestina (Παλαιστίνη) and applied it to the entire
region that had formerly included Iudaea Province (which combined Judea, Samaria, and Idumea). The Arabic toponym Filastin (فلسطين) is derived
from this name.
Again, my friend, this is where the word comes from. This is three times now I have addressed this.
But you keep wishing to push forward, so lets start in the 1900's and start working on this.
So our first Stop should reflect upon the international community and the main body that controled such matters.
First was the League of Nations
Here is that mandate, without the Skewed Disinformation that was offered in your
previous post. The Facts, we only wish for the Facts. And in reviewing the following, this is all that this deals with Facts.
This mandate is quite clear and easy to follow. No mis-information is riddled through the Mandate to lean it towards any party. The palestine Mandate
was solely prepared to give the Jewish People a Palestine Homeland. Even the League of Nations understoon what Palestine meant.
Next, maybe lets see what the U.N. offers.
Just review the list of Member States. Even today, there is no Palestine. Israel became a member, but where is Palestine?
So, in the infancy of the U.N., we can find resolutions of Jewish, ARAB, and some comments on Palestine See the following site
Click 1946, and scroll down to resolutions as noted.
Jewish request for a hearing See Res 104 (S-I)
ARAB request for a hearing See Res 105 (S-I)
Setting up an organization to review the matter See Res 106 (S-I)
These all outline this matter in the Basic sense, since this was during the first General assembly of the U.N. Nothing very direct, or informative,
but the basis again, is Palestine and the steps the U.N. Should take.
Now due to unknown reasons, we are unable to find the resolutions for anything discussed during their Second Year (1947), but in the Third General
Assembly we can find the beginings of this mis-conception of what Palestinians are. The year would now be 1948.
Again, use the Link Above and review 1948, Scroll down to Resolution as noted
The Paslestine Refugees See Res 212(III)
Yes, the problems begining, but in no uncertain terms are Palestines refugees anything other than Palestine refugees. The U.N. addresses the concerns
immeadiately, and the matter of this People your claim as Palestinians but are Palestine Arabs begins.
You can go on from there if you wish, or await further post to come.
This should do for your reviewing for today. There is quite abit. And I am sorry, but each of these files are archived as PDF's. Ones to follow will
likely also be PDF's until we reach the Mid-80's
