the history of the earth, there has never been a
country of Palestine!
3000 years the land between the Mediterranean Sea
and Persia was conquered and rebuilt many times.
In the order of conquest:
· Israel/King David
around 1000 BC
· Alexander the
· British/French in
1917 Britain and France defeated the Ottomans in
WWl and did what all victors do--they divided up
the spoils of war. The British gave the Jews the
right to return to their long sought homeland. The
new Jewish area, called "Palestine" by the
of the land of Israel AND
you can see in the map below, area on both sides
of the Jordan River/Dead Sea was given to Israel
for her homeland.
nations were also carved out of the old Ottoman
empire: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon,
Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qutar, Bahrain and
Kuwait. So to make the ridiculous claim that
Israel is not a nation today would mean all those
other nations would have to be illegitimate as
despite all those newly created Arab nations, the
Arabs vehemently protested against Israel's new
land. So in 1946, the British divided Palestine,
the land given to Israel, into two parts. West of
the Jordan River was for the Jews and called
Palestine. East of the Jordan River was for the
Arabs and called Transjordan.
that was not enough to satisfy the Arabs. November
29, 1947, the U.N. further divided up Israel into
a Jewish and Arab state.
over 90% of the land originally given to Israel
for her homeland was taken away and given to the
Arabs for an independent Arab state.
the Jews, having just been through the holocaust
in Germany, and willing to take anything offered,
accepted the partition. Not surprisingly, the
ever-reaching Arabs rejected it.
about it, Israel gave up Jordan, and then was
willing to give up most of the land on the west
side of the Jordan River, keeping only 10% of what
was originally given to them, just to have
1948, on the day after the U.N. gave Israel her
nation status, six Arab nations attacked Israel
with over 800,000 troops. The Mufti of Jerusalem,
Haj Amin Al Husseini stated,
declare a holy war, my Moslem brothers! Murder the
Jews! Murder them all."
one-day-old nation, with no standing army and no
functioning government, had a total of 700,000
men, women and children to defend their new
God allowed Israel to hold on to most of the area,
losing the West Bank to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt.
They held West Jerusalem, but lost East Jerusalem
and the Old CIty to the Jordanians.
Israel's fight for her independence, Arab leaders
told the Arab population in Israel to flee. They
promised to push Israel into the Mediterranean Sea
and then they could come back and live in the
Arabs that didn't leave Israel were made Israeli
citizens and today have Israeli passports. They
enjoy protection, stability and the highest
standard of living for a middle class in the
entire Arab Middle East.
that fled Israel are what today are called "Arab
refugees." Their Arab brothers refused to absorb
them into Egypt and/or Jordan as citizens. Israel
however, absorbed some 3 million Jews that were
expelled from Arab countries.
The U.S. insisted the so
called "Palestinian refugees" have elections. They
did and promptly elected Hamas, a terrorist
organization, to run the government. They shoot
media gave them the name "Palestinians," but as
stated above, "Palestine" was a name given for the
Jewish homeland. An "Arab Palestine" has no
history, no language, no distinct culture,
nothing. They are simply Jordanians or Egyptians
and they should be citizens in those
Arab leaders have made a political football out of
the situation. They claim they need the land for a
Palestinian State, but they had full control of
the land from 1948 to 1967, 20 years, and did
nothing. Only after Israel recovered the land in
1967 did the issue of needing the land for a
"Palestinian State" come up.
"Arab Palestine" has pretty much a non-economy, no
manufacturing, no exports, no monetary system and
exists only by the billions Europe and the U.S.
give them in foreign aid. Only a fraction of that
foreign aid actually gets to the people, most
falling into the personal hands of Arab/Muslim
Palestinians have never recognized Israel's status
as a sovereign nation nor wavered from their
documented intent to wipe Israel from the face of
what about the call for the United Nations to
purpose of the United Nations, as spelled out in
its charter, is to maintain international peace
and security. It recognizes nations if they meet
four basic criteria.
A permanent population.
A defined territory.
The capacity to enter into formal relations with
Palestinian Authority does not meet these basic
characteristics of a nation.
Palestinian Authority has neither a permanent
population, a defined territory, a government with
the capacity to enter into relations with other
nations and certainly the ability to keep
Palestinian Authority does not control any part of
the West Bank to the exclusion of Israeli
authority, and it exercises no control at all in
the Gaza Strip--instead it is still run by the
terrorist organization Hamas.
Palestinian Authority does not qualify for
recognition as a state and, therefore, it does not
qualify for UN membership, which is open only to
putting the United Nations General Assembly in
charge of state recognition is inconsistent with
international law, as well as the United Nations
United Nations (General Assembly or Security
Council) has no power to create states or to grant
formal "recognition" to an aspiring state. The
right to recognize statehood is a fundamental
attribute of sovereignty and the United Nations is
not a sovereign.
this makes the world a bit tense... but it was
predicted in the Bible:
"... the Lord Will again recover the second time
His hand The remnant of His people... and will
gather the dispersed of Judah From the four
of the earth." Is. 11:11-12
Lord brought the Jews back the first time from the
Babylonian captivity. The second time was from the
four corners of the earth.
"And it will come about in that day that I will
Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all
who lift it will be severely injured. And all the
of the earth will be gathered against it."
