      Terrorist Israeli clown… Palestine is the land your settlers occupy in the west bank. and Gaza. Keep your foolish opinions and your country’s borders inside the 1967 lines and no more is required from you.

      1. Actually that’s pretty accurate.. a little reading in any history book will show that the original mandate consisted of all the territories including Jordan.That was sliced off to appease the Saudis and the Hashemite’s. If you really want to get technical, greater Israel included parts of the Sinai,Lebanon and Syria as well. The sooner everyone over there quits bashing their neighbors  and starts focusing on building up their own countries for the better you will all be better off. And kick out the Iranian stooges that will help. Everyone complains over there they want a better life yet refuses to do anything about it.Your countries are flush with money yet you guys are kept in poverty by the leaders that never leave,or lead.

          Until 1948 there was no official state of Israel either…These clowns using the lack of a “historical” Palestine to deny an indigenous people their right to land is foolish and defending it in semantics is just as foolish.

          1. But as far as calling it Historical Palestine,It was never was. The term coming from the Romans.The whole mess didnt even become a issue until 67-68. There could have been a Palestine in 48,67,73,78,the 80’s,and several offers to settle in this century as well,they just refuse. If the Arabs just make a peace agreement then everyone can get on with their lives and better themselves instead of destroying others.

          See my ‘quick notes’ to master09 … but better yet, see the wikipedia entries of ‘History of Palestine’ over 1.5 million years. How anyone can figure out who’s Palestinian is beyond me. I’d figure most are Egyptians … or perhaps African. Want to go there? Discover ‘roots’ ? 😉

        3.  Mohamad,  honestly, there was never another separate sovereign state/country in that territory before 1948 other than 3 Jewish ones.. the last one being in the 590’s C.E. , but there were some empires and caliphates that conquered and took over that territory…Roman Empire, Arab ‘umma’ (back then all were from Arabian peninsula) for 22 years and latter for several hundred the Ottoman Empire.

          According to INt’l law (you are late joining the conversation) you are also wrong.  Furthermore, the people who started calling themselves ‘palistinians’ since the 1960’s (this is the third identity they tried adopting) are from North Africa and the Middle East, -‘na’am’, even from Egypt and from Jordan during the illegal occupation 1948-1967 which only two countries recognized and NOT EVEN one ARAB country recognized!  I know facts hurt, don’t they?

          “The Palestinian
          people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a
          means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our
          Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians,
          Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical
          reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people,
          since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a
          distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.”

        What about the real place where they also lived Part of Jordan what happened in that side of the story.
        Go back 120 in history and it will show you the truth. Did you know this.

        It was only after the Jews re-inhabited their historic homeland of Judea and Samaria, that the myth of an Arab Palestinian nation was created and marketed worldwide. Jews come from Judea, not Palestinians. There is no 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. “Palestinians” are Arabs indistinguishable from Arabs throughout the Middle East. The great majority of Arabs in greater Palestine and Israel share the same culture, language and religion.

        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. The rebirth of Israel was accompanied by economic prosperity for the region. Arabs migrated to this area to find employment and enjoy the higher standard of living. In documents not more than hundred years, the area is described as a scarcely populated region. Jews by far were the majority in Jerusalem over the small Arab minority. Until the Oslo agreement the major source of income for Arab residents was employment in the Israeli sector. To this day, many Arabs try to migrate into Israel with various deceptions to become a citizen of Israel.,Thus, Jordan covers the majority of the land of Palestine

        Even the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Arafat himself, was not a “Palestinian”. He was born in Egypt.

        For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

        That’s pretty clear, isn’t it? It’s even more specific than Golda Meir’s statement. And it is hardly the only such statement of its kind. Arafat himself made a very definitive and unequivocal statement along these lines as late as 1993. It demonstrates conclusively that the Palestinian nationhood argument is the real strategic deception – one geared to set up the destruction of Israel.

        In fact, on the same day Arafat signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn in 1993, he explained his actions on Jordan TV. Here’s what he said: “Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish a sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.”

        No matter how many people convince themselves that the aspirations for Palestinian statehood are genuine and the key to peace in the Middle East, they are still deceiving themselves.

        I’ve said it before and I will say it again, in the history of the world, Palestine has never existed as a nation. The region known as Palestine was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their ancestral homeland. It was never ruled by Arabs as a separate nation.

    How can someone respect the community of the Israelis and the Muslim Arabs at the same time as they are diametrically opposed to each other. The Territory of the West Bank was a part of Jordan before the 1967 war was started by Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. I would think that the disposition of who is sovereign over the West Bank should be between Israel and Jordan; no one else should be involved. Who gave Lebanon or for that matter the authority the UN to decide what happens in the West Bank.

    It seems to me that the Arabs who have sworn to completely destroy Israel are trying to get back territory (that they lost in battle), by subterfuge, prevarications, and confusing the issue. I wish the world could clearly see the truth of the matter.

      This is true … and it doesn’t seem the King and Queen of Jordan were complaining too much.
