I don't have any evidence??
Do you know what your using as "evidence" for Palestinians being a "people"? A Palestinian Passport. That's akin to holding up an Ontario drivers
license and saying "See, there's a distinct Ontario people, with a unique cultural identity".
It proves nothing, at all. It merely shows that, yes, there is such a administrative district called "Palestine", just as their is a Canadian province
Do you even know the history of the region? Palestine is an idea resurrected by the British, echoing the Roman falsification 1800 years earlier, when
Hadrian, in his anger and disdain for the Jewish people, renamed the province of Judea to "Palestina", after the Biblical nemesis of the Israelites -
At no point, EVER, was their a continuity between the Philistines, who were an Aegean Greek sea people, and the Arabs who invaded the Levant in the
the late 7th and early 8th centuries, which todays Palestines trace their ancestry to. These are two, entirely different groups of people. In between
them stands nearly 2 millenia of Jewish sovereignty in the land. After the destruction of the 2nd Temple, and the subsequent dispersion of the Jews to
the 4 corners of the world, to Spain, Morocco, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, Iraq etc, and following the internecine conflicts between Abbasid and
Omayyad caliphates, and the battles of the middle ages between the European crusaders and the Muslims, through Ottoman rule, up until the British
mandate, there has NEVER been a sovereign nation set up in the land.
As a matter of fact, if you know your history, the Arabs of whats called "Palestine""Jordan""Lebanon" and "Syria" fared far worse, and were dealing
with much more excruciating living conditions, at the end of the ottoman caliphate, due to the increased centralization and heavy taxes imposes by
Arab effendis on the locals. Truth is, when the Jews came, they brought prosperity with them. Of course, no one hears this side. Who cares, right???
The Jews brought investment, which brought jobs, and infrastructure, and improved standards of living. This of course was not meant for the Arab - but
the Arab nonetheless came and invaded those areas of Jewish settled Palestine - the Tel Aviv/Jaffa/Haifa region, and cleverly took those jobs Jewish
investment intended for the suffering Jews of eastern Europe and Russia (again, look up the history of that painful time in Jewish history)
How many massacres did the Arabs commit before the Jews did anything? How many times did these poor, defenseless, peace loving men and women get
ravaged by mobs of Muslim men girded on by a warmongering imam and Sheik?
It is such a sad thing you people don't understand this issue in context. In context, the JEWS ARE RIGHT. End of case. Does the Israeli government act
corruptly? yes. Does it bring bad press. Yes. Is that probably the intention of the gnostic-liberal, Israeli establishment? You bet your ass.
This is why I'm a religious Zionist. I am for the Jewish people. I am for their return to their native and spiritual land. If the Arabs don't like it
- go to the 22 other States God gave you. You CANT HAVE EVERYTHING. You can't make claims to the Temple mount when it is merely your "3rd most holy
site". It was built on the ashes of the Jewish temple, KNOWINGLY, and truly, that thing deserves to be destroyed. THAT is justice.
