The Glazov Gang: The Myth of the Palestinians

Three distinguished guests recently joined Jamie Glazov’s tv program, The Glazov Gang, to battle it out on why the truth cannot be said about an invented people. A heated confrontation ensued and spiraled into pandemonium. The All-Star cast included Leon Weinstein, author of “Capitalism 101,” Evan Sayet, America’s #1 Conservative Comedian, and Rob Nelson, former Fox News talk show host. Below are the three segments to the program, which touched on several themes: Part 1 deals with The Invented People, Part 2 involves a heated battle of capitalism and Part 3 focuses on potential solutions to America’s biggest problems.

Part 1: The Invented People:

Part 2: Why Capitalism Succeeds:

Part 3: Simple Solutions for America’s Biggest Problems:

To get the whole story on why the Left hates capitalism’s success and supports destructive adversarial ideologies, read Jamie Glazov’s book, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror.

    Rob Nelson: Don't pound the table. Don't.

    March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper "Trouw" published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein:

    "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."

    This proves exactly what? That the Zionists didn't expel via force 650,000 Arab Muslims living in Palestine between '47-'49'? Of course not. Here's the Israeli Zionist historian Benny Morris on Israel's culpability and lies on their ethnic cleansing and occupation.

    T Rami al interviewed Morris for the newspaper Yediot Ahronot in December 1994.
    Morris: As one who received his education in Israel, I thought I knew that the Arabs had ‘run away.’ But I knew nothing else.The Jewish generations of 1948, however, knew the truth and deliberately misrepresented it. They knew there were plenty of mass deportations, massacres and rapes…The soldiers and the officials knew, but they suppressed what they knew and were deliberately disseminating lies.”

    Benny Morris also said this:
    “Israelis like to tell the world, that they are running an ‘enlightened’ or ‘benign’ occupation, qualitatively different from other military occupations the world has seen. The truth was radically different. Like all occupations, Israel’s was founded on brute force, repression and fear, collaboration and treachery, beatings and torture chambers, and daily intimidation, humiliation and manipulation.” Israeli historian, Benny Morris, “Righteous Victims.”

    What does it matter if one calls those people Palestinians or not? It's still a vicious, immoral act that deserves no moral support by the U.S. nor is it of strategic concern to the U.S. I'd be fine with offering any Jew who feels unsafe in their country U.S. citizenship – they could live here in safety as millions of Jews already do. More than that is taking sides in a religious conflict over land that I could care less who wins.

      Palestine? What Palestine? The mandate was supposed to be parted in two parts: Israel and Jordan.

      Typical antisemetic garbage and LIES from Glenn… Benny Morris has emphatically stated that the vast majority of Arabs (Palestinians) were never forced from their homes and never engaged in so-called "ethnic cleansing." The vast majority of Arabs left on their own accord at the urging of Arab governments who promised them spoils of war and to push the Jews into the sea.

      In Benny Morris' "Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem," he refutes his earlier claims and conclusively states that: "[T]here was no Zionist policy to expel the Arabs or intimidate them into flight" during the War of Independence. What Benny Morris does state is that Israeli troops encouraged or forced only a small percentage of Arabs to leave, and even this was due to the exigencies of the war itself. As Benny Morris states:

      "[T]he Palestine refugee problem was born of war, not by design, Jewish or Arab. It was largely a byproduct of Jewish and Arab fears and of the protracted, bitter fighting that characterized the first Israeli-Arab war; in smaller part it was the deliberation creation of Jewish and Arab military commanders and politicians."

      Historian Efraim Karsh explains further: "Israeli forces did on occasion expel Palestinians. But this accounted for only a small fraction of the total exodus, occurred not within the framework of a premeditated plan but in the heat of battle, and was dictated predominantly by ad hoc military considerations (notably the need to deny strategic sites to the enemy if there were no available Jewish forces to hold them)."

      Benny Morris was forced to admit that: "only 'several thousand' families were displaced following land sales to Jews between the 1880's and the late 1930's." As Alan Dershowitz points out, this is a "fraction of the number of people displaced by the Egyptian construction of the Aswan Dam."

      "…It's still a vicious, immoral act…"

      None of your business. A true isolationist calls for withdrawing from all entanglements, foreign aid etc. without delivering moral judgments on the other. You want your country to withdraw from all involvement from the Middle East? Your country's right as a sovereign state. But cut out those moral judgments that are the mark of interventionist scum. Which is what I consider you as long as you keep on that tack.

      "I'd be fine with offering any Jew who feels unsafe in their country U.S. citizenship…"

      Very generous of you, but the Land of Israel is the Jewish nation's only homeland. You might as well offer to "resettle" the Greeks in the United States.

      "…they could live here in safety as millions of Jews already do."

      Safety—until something changes. The Jews of Germany in the 1920s felt safe.

      "More than that is taking sides in a religious conflict over land that I could care less who wins."

      If you couldn't care less, how about shutting up about "Zionism's crimes"? Somebody who couldn't care less and doesn't want to take sides proves it by keeping his pie-hole shut about either of the side's deeds. As an isolationist you're a fraud. Go back to DailyKKKos, leftist interventionist scum.

      I read his book and in the conclusion was that about 1800 arabs were forced out of their homes. That is the true extent of the Nakhba. You could find 1800 Australians forced out of Western Sydney since the 1970s if you tried.

    Of course the State of Palestine never existed. Of course Jews were always the inhabitants living in the Palestine region under the Ottoman Empire and after WWI under the British Mandate…Judea and Samaria were called as Palestine (pejorative and offensive) for Roman Imperial order as punishment for the Bar Kojba battle, but Jewish people never renounced to their land and their faith. So is absolute accurate to call Palestinian as invented people. It is important to return to the exact mining and vocabulary to describe the real situation. And please improve a little more the sound. let sun glasses out and do not pound the table.

    Jordan revoked the citizenship of their palestinians and no one said anything. Since they got 3/4 of the land of palestine, why don't they just carve a country for the palestinians out of Jordan, if they care so much for them?

    The historical record proves that Arab Higher Committee urged the Palestinians to flee and added that Arabs who remained in Haifa, Jaffa, and Jerusalem and accepted Jewish protection would be regarded as renegades. The Israelis did everything possible to assure Israeli Arabs that their citizenship and safety would not be jeopardized. So, it was not the Jews who expelled them, but their own Arab leaders. This is historically recorded in major medias such as; Time Magazine May 3 1948, London Economist October 2 1948, Near East Arabic Broadcasting Station April 3 1949, New York Herald Tribune June 30 1949, The Beirut Muslim weekly Kul-Shay August 19 1951, The Jordanian daily newspaper February 19 1949 and April 9 1953, The Cairo daily Akhbar el Yom October 12 1963, Newsweek January 20 1963 and February 19 1949… please note that included in the medias cited are Arab medias as well.

    Furthermore, more than 800,000 Jews were expelled from Arab nations. The significant difference is that Israel absorbed the expelled Jews and assisted with their relocation and integration… while the Arabs seized upon the opportunity to once again play the victim card. Not a single Arab nation granted a single Palestinian citizenship… subsequently, they remain in refugee camps for the sole purposes of demonizing Israel and for the lucrative continuation of multi-billion$ in aid.
    On Sept. 11, 2011, Palestinian ambassador Abdullah Abdullah emphatically stated that Palestinian refugees would not become citizens of any newborn Palestinian state… “they are still refugees… and they will not be considered citizens.”

    A New Palestinian State Could Deny Citizenship to 45 Percent of All Palestinian ‘Refugees’

    No one blames the voters but in a democracy the voters are the real culprits. Everyone in
    Congress and the Senate knows that if they make the necessary cuts in entitlements to save the economy they will be voted out of office. The Republicans can't oppose Obama's extension of unemployment benefits or they will be voted out of office. So the debt keeps getting bigger and bigger until the inevitable will happen which is hyperinflation and starvation. You can't borrow forever. People are not willing to take the necessary steps now so we're going off the cliff.

      The United States is a Constitutional Republic. In a Constitutional Republic, every citizen is entitled to inalienable rights granted by God. Inalienable rights; Life, Liberty, the pursuit of Happiness, all men are created equal, presumption of innocence and due process can not be altered, negotiated, surrendered, sold, transferred, or voted away. In a democracy, the majority rule and can vote out any and all alienable rights. They knew that the Constitutional Republic was the first thing that had to go. And so, they began a steady campaign of indoctrinating Americans into enthusiastically and blindly embracing Democracy with the deceptive strategy of artificial patriotism. The heartbreaking irony is that even as well-meaning patriotic Americans were fighting and dying for Democracy they were simultaneously forfeiting their God-granted rights. The strategical purpose is to gradually and malevolently convert the U.S. into a Democracy… so they can then falsely declare that the people got what they voted for.

      Josef Stalin… “It is not the vote that counts, but who counts the votes.”

      Karl Marx… “Democracy is the road to socialism"

      Vladimir Lenin…"Democracy is indispensable to socialism"

    Jamie, please, PLEASE use a heavier hand in leading the panel. We want to hear what each person has to say, but when there are 4 shouting voices, well, no one is understood. The description of the event was, "A heated confrontation ensued and spiraled into pandemonium." Don't forget the origins and true meaning of the word pandemonium. "Scene of wild confusion or disorder because it is the abode of all demons, which is hell." Please, strive for order and lack of confusion in these discussions! Thanks, Carol
