Israel’s Worst Enemy: Lies and Myths

olThe Washington Post reports that some members of Secretary of State John Kerry’s senior staff think it’s time to say “enough” of Kerry’s futile and delusional attempts to broker peace between the Israelis and Arabs and implement the “two-state solution.” That’s a revelation one would think the chief diplomat of the greatest power in history would have experienced decades ago. Since the failed 1993 Oslo Accords, it has been obvious to all except the duplicitous, the ignorant, and the Jew-hater that the Arabs do not want a “Palestinian state living in peace side-by-side with Israel,” something they could have had many times in the past. On the contrary, as they serially prove in word and deed, they want Israel destroyed.

As Caroline Glick documents in her new book The Israeli Solution, the “two-state solution” is a diplomatic chimera for the West, and a tactic for revanchist Arabs who cannot achieve their eliminationist aims by military means. But the “Palestinian state” is merely one of many myths, half-truths, and outright lies that befuddle Western diplomats and leaders, and put the security and possibly the existence of Israel at risk.

First there is the canard that Israel is somehow an illegitimate state, a neo-imperialist outpost that Westerners created to protect their economic and geopolitical interests. In this popular myth, invading Jewish colonists “stole” the land and ethnically cleansed the region of its true possessors, the indigenous “Palestinian people.” This crime was repeated after 1967 Six Day War, when Israel seized the “West Bank,” occupying it as a colonial power and subjecting its inhabitants to a brutally discriminatory regime. The continuing power of this lie can be seen in the frequent comparison of Israel to apartheid South Africa. And this false historical analogy in turn drives the “Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions” movement, which is attempting to make Israel even more of a pariah state in order to duplicate the success of those tactics in dismantling white rule in South Africa.

Every dimension of this narrative is false. The state of Israel came into being by the same legitimate process that created the other new states in the region, the consequence of the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire after World War I. Consistent with the traditional practice of victorious states, the Allied powers France and England created Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Jordan, and of course Israel, to consolidate and protect their national interests. This legitimate right to rewrite the map may have been badly done and shortsighted––regions containing many different sects and ethnic groups were bad candidates for becoming a nation-state, as the history of Iraq and Lebanon proves, while prime candidates for nationhood like the Kurds were left out. But the right to do so was bestowed by the Allied victory and the Central Powers’ loss, the time-honored wages of starting a war and losing it. Likewise in Europe, the Austro-Hungarian Empire was dismantled, and the new states of Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, and Czechoslovakia were created. And arch-aggressor Germany was punished with a substantial loss of territory, leaving some 10 million Germans stranded outside the fatherland. Israel’s title to its country is as legitimate as Jordan’s, Syria’s and Lebanon’s.

Then there is the melodrama of the “displacement” of the “Palestinians,” who have been condemned to live as stateless “refugees” because of Israel’s aggression. This narrative of course ignores the fact that most of the Arabs fleeing Palestine left voluntarily, the first wave, mainly the Arab elite, beginning in November 1947 with the U.N. vote for partition. At the time it was clear to observers that most of the Arabs chose to flee their supposed ancestral homeland. In September 1948 Time magazine, no friend of Israel, wrote, “There is but little doubt that the most potent of the factors [explaining the Arab flight] were the announcements made over the air by the Arab Higher Committee urging the Arabs to quit.” These were followed in 1948 by 300,000 others, who either were avoiding the conflict, or were induced by the Arab Higher Committee with the promise that after victory they could return and find, as Arab League Secretary-General Azza Pasham said in May 1948, “that all the millions the Jews had spent on land and economic development would be easy booty, for it would be a simple matter to throw Jews into the Mediterranean.” Indeed, the withdrawal of Israelis from Gaza in 2005 confirmed the prediction that failed in 1948. The Gaza greenhouse industry, which American Jewish donors purchased for $14 million and gave to the Palestinian Authority in order to help Gaza’s economy, was instead destroyed by looters.

But from a historical perspective, it is irrelevant how the Arabs became refugees. When in 1922 the Greeks lost their war they fought against the Turks in order to regain their sovereignty over lands their ancestors had lived in for nearly 3000 years, 1.5 million Greeks were transferred out of Turkey in exchange for half a million Turks from Europe. After World War II, 12 million Germans either fled or were driven from Eastern Europe, with at least half a million dying. In both cases, whether justly or not, the wages of starting a war and losing included the displacement of the losers. Yet only in the case of the Palestinian Arabs has this perennial cost of aggression been reversed, and those who prevailed in a war they didn’t start been demonized for the suffering of refugees created by the aggression of their ethnic and religious fellows.

In still another historical anomaly, in no other conflict have refugees failed to be integrated into countries with which they share an ethnic, religious, and cultural identity. Most of the some 800,000 Jews, for example, driven from lands like Egypt and Iraq in which their ancestors had lived for centuries, were welcomed into Israel, which footed the bill for their maintenance and integration into society. The Arab states, on the other hand, kept their brother Arabs and Muslims in squalid camps that have evolved into squalid cities, their keep paid for by the United Nations Relief Works Agency, the only U.N. agency dedicated to only one group of refugees. Thus the international community has enabled the revanchist policy of the Arab states, as Alexander Galloway, head of the UNRWA, said in 1952: “It is perfectly clear that the Arab nations do not want to solve the Arab refugee problem. They want to keep it an open sore, as an affront against the United Nations, and as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders don’t give a damn whether the refugees live or die.”

This brings us to the chief myth: that there exists a distinct Palestinian “people,” the original possessors of the land who have been unjustly denied a national homeland. In the quotes above notice that no Arab ever refers to these people as “Palestinians,” but as “Arabs,” which is what most of them are, sharing the same religion, language, and culture of their Arab neighbors in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. In fact, as Sha’i ben-Tekoa documents in his book Phantom Nation, the first U.N. resolution referencing “Palestinians” instead of  “Arabs” occurred 3 years after the Six Day War, marking international recognition of a “Palestinian people” and nation as yet another Arab tactic in gaining support in the West by exploiting an idea alien to traditional Islam. Before then “Palestinian” was a geographical designation, more typically applied to Jews. Numerous quotations from Arab leaders reveal not a single reference to a Palestinian people, but numerous one identifying the inhabitants of the geographical entity Palestine as “Arabs.” 

For example, in 1937, Arab Higher Committee Secretary Auni Abdel Hadi said, “There is no such country as Palestine. ‘Palestine’ is a country the Zionists invented. ‘Palestine’ is alien to us.” The Christian Arab George Antonius, author of the influential The Arab Awakening, told David Ben-Gurion, “There was no natural barrier between Palestine and Syria and there was no difference between their inhabitants.” Later in his book he defined Syria as including Lebanon, Palestine, and Jordan. In testimony to the U.N. in 1947, the Arab Higher Committee said, “Politically the Arabs of Palestine are not independent in the sense of forming a separate political identity.” Thirty years later Farouk Kaddoumi, then head of the PLO Political Department, told Newsweek, “Jordanians and Palestinians are considered by the PLO as one people.” After the Six-Day War a member of the Executive Council of the PLO, Zouhair Muhsin, was even more explicit: “There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity… Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel.”

Such examples can be multiplied, which makes all the talk of a separate Palestinian “people” deserving of their own nation nothing but propaganda supported by a bogus history that claims the Arabs who came to Palestine in the 7th century A.D as conquerors and occupiers, or later as migrant workers and immigrants, are the “indigenous” inhabitants descended from Biblical peoples like the Canaanites or the shadowy Jebusites––a claim unsupported by any written or archaeological evidence. Meanwhile, of course, abundant evidence exists showing that the Jews have continuously inhabited the region since 1300 B.C. Once more the logic of history is turned on its head, with the descendants of the original inhabitants deemed alien invaders, while the descendants of conquerors and occupiers are sanctified as victims.

Such an inversion is worthy of Orwell’s 1984. Yet these lies and myths––and there are many more–– have shaped and defined the conflict between Israel and the Arabs, and set the parameters of diplomatic solutions. But we should heed the Biblical injunction about the liberating power of truth. And the truth is, for a century fanatics filled with genocidal hatred have violently and viciously attacked a liberal-democratic nation legitimately established in the ancient homeland of its people. Until our diplomacy and foreign relations in the region are predicated on this truth, the “two-state solution” will continue to be a dangerous farce.

            Very odd attitude G. Nasser nationalised all their assets and ejected them from the country. Muslim accuse Copt of supporting Jew, and although muslim put Copt in their army they are afraid the Copt will betray them to Jew. NO-ONE wants the mozzy raghead as Master.

            The Coptic Pope Shenouda III July 2008, he told Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper: “Jews are a cursed people who have their hands indulged in the blood of Palestinians.”

            THE LEADER of the Coptic Church, Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria told Egyptian television on the 8th of April 2007 the Western Churches were wrong to exonerate Jews for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and criticised recent statements apologising for Christian anti-Semitism.

            Father Morcos Aziz Khalil in a recent article in Nahdet Masr Newspaper devoted his entire time to bashing the Jews. He said: “The Jews saw that the Church is their No. 1 Enemy and that without Priesthood the Church loses its most important component, thus the Masonic Movement was the secret Zionist hand to create revolution against the clergy. The Zionist Ideology has kept its conspiracies a secret buried in silence.”

    Duplicitous Jew-hater might well apply to this president as well as to many on today’s political left. Watching the 2012 DNC floor fight over including Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and God in their party platform was instructive. But these are pretty strong accusations against Republicans leaders, our Repubican president and nominees since Oslo. George W. Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney all strongly supported these savages who are bent on destroying Israel. Romney sent Sen. Jim Talent to fight for the Palestinian cause on our national platform writing committee. Talent prevailed over conservative Christian opposition. The party of Obama I believe is beyond repair. What happened to the Party of Lincoln; my party?

    • teq

      Don’t forget what Bush ’41 did after the first Iraq war, ordering Israel to attend peace negotiations with the Pals in Madrid. When Shamir refused, Bush threatened to cancel Israel’s loan guarantee, so Shamir relented and sent representatives to the “peace talks. This all eventually led to the travesty of Oslo.
      They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. This describes the behavior of Washington ever since Carter. Each president has naively believed he could get a feather in his cap by throwing Israelis and Pals together and telling them to talk each other into peace. No matter how many times the “Peace Process” has failed, each administration has blindly done the same thing over and over, each time believing it was going to magically lead to “peace”.
      It’s very frustrating.

        A time to mourn and a time to dance….

        A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
        A time to be silent and a time to speak.

        A time to love and a time to hate;
        A time for war and a time for peace….

    With Hamas, who is committed to Israel’s destruction based on unbending Jihadist dogma?

    Or with Fatah, who aspires to same results in stages, and would be overrun by Hamas soon after Israeli military vacates the West Bank anyway?

    2-State Plan doesn’t make sense only if you think its aim is Peace. It makes a lot of sense if you realize its aim is to destroy Israel!

    In fact, by reducing the Jewish state to militarily indefensible borders, it is a necessary next step for the Arabs in order to advance from Phase II to Phase III in their 1974 Phased Plan for dismantling of Israel.

    If Arabs really wanted Peace, they would not invent a separate Palestinian identity, while Jordan already covers nearly 80% of Mandatory Palestine and most Gaza Arabs are indistinguishable from Egypt’s Sinai Bedouin.

    Amazing how only Jews regaining JUDEA are neo-imperialist colony, whereas the Arabs from ARABIA are considered native from Morocco to Iraq. The Arabs are the largest colonial power on the planet.

    When the Arabs fled the Mandate the UK noted that there were some 420K of them and when UNRWA was formed they asked the Arabs how many ‘refugees’ there were and the number became over 700K overnight. Exactly where did the extra 300K come from? Also unlike the legal (Geneva Convention based) definition of the term refugee the Arabs only had to reside in the Mandate for some 18 months. That is not even legal residency in any country in the world. Why is that? Because over 80% of the Arabs had not resided in the Mandate long enough to establish residency.

    In 1948 there was another much larger refugee issue that the UN did nothing about. Over 10 million Muslims and Hindus became refugees and another 1-2 million civilians were killed over the independence of India and Pakistan. Number of refugees today – ZERO. Number of refugees that returned to their homes – ZERO. Compensation for the refugees – ZERO. UN Resolutions for any of the refugees – ZERO. UN assistance for the refugees – ZERO. Anybody else sensing a pattern?

    “Anti-Zionism” is the same as anti-Americanism in the rhetoric of the old Soviet Union. See the wild accusation of Dmitri Volkogonov before he saw the light: http://clarespark.com/2011/12/02/the-whiteness-of-the-whale/. “The Whiteness of the Whale.” Scroll down to the bottom for the money quote. Had Israel joined the Eastern bloc as the SU wanted, the left would have been pro-Jewish state.

    • emptorpreempted

      Interesting quote. Volkogonov, who became a liberal in the 90′s and wrote books on Soviet history, doesn’t seem to have been a sincere antisemite. The Soviet Union, on the other hand, was not just an antisemitic state, but a proselytizer of antisemitism throughout the world. The reason is not hard to divine: the Russians and other East Europeans were (and perhaps remain) habitually well-disposed toward the United States, and this sentiment was especially pronounced just after WWII. It must be useful and even necessary for the Communists to link America with the despised Jews, the better to consolidate their rule in newly-conquered territories. The implication of this is that Israel never had a real option to join with the Soviet bloc: the result might have been a disaster.

        Lying and grasping at straw, she clearly cites her source. Maybe your pathetic understand of the Middle East is a result of your lack of reading comprehension troll.

        • The Facts

          The part about anti-Zionism being a rehash of soviet anti-Americanism is plagiarism of Andrei S. Markovits. Please, don’t mess with the best.

          • Bklyn Farmer

            As I told you troll she clearly cites her sources, now go back under your rock and keep on playing choke-the-bishop.

          • ahad_ha_amoratsim

            Citing a someone else’s research and clearly attributing it to them is the opposite of plagiarism, but don’t let the facts confuse you, Facts, and we won’t let the Jew-hating, lying troll who calls himself Facts confuse us.

    The Arabs do not want a two state solution with 2-people living side by side in PEACE. They want the Middle East to be free of any Jews ever. They also want the Middle East free of Christians. After they get this they will want a world free of all Infidels. Then the different Islamic groups can fight it out with each other.

      First the Saturday People, then the Sunday People.

      Well, the Saturday People are almost gone, except for those in Israel. Soon, the Sunday People will be no more.

  • Harald Eigerson

    Why do people keep talking about a two state solution when they clearly mean a three state solution? There is already a two state solution called Israel and Jordan which was previously Trans-Jordan. Trans-Jordan wasn’t good enough even though they got way more land and were able to ban Jews so they dropped the Trans and came across the Jordan River and illegally occupied Judea and Samaria in 1948. May the British continue to pay a divine penance for their part in that. If you can get away with a two state solution well then why not three, four or however many it takes to partition Israel out of existence like Prussia, Russia and the Austrio-Hungarian Empire did to Poland? Enough with the bovine fecal matter, just say no!

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Harald Eigerson AKBAR!

      Yeah, the British can’t over the fact that Israel wasn’t defeated in 1948 by five attacking Arab armies, just three years after the end of WW2 and the Holocaust, especially without the “protection” of the perfidious British who tried to setup Israel to lose – but G-D Bless the Czechs for providing Israel with guns to defend themselves.

      • ahad_ha_amoratsim

        Five attacking armies more numerous, better armed and – thanks to the British – better trained.

        • aquataine

          Forty British offices helped with strategy and tactics in 1948.

      • aquataine

        Very true. Most Brits still remember the two soldiers executed by the Stern Gang.

        Oh, and Mum is a limey from Plymouth, England. That means I have correspondence with her huge gaggle of relatives.

        • Gee

          Yes – but why did they do that? Would it be in response to the hanging of two Israelis perhaps?

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          Most Americans still remember that Brits killed Americans in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.

          and….

          that the UK released the convicted bomber of Pan Am 103, on “compassionate” grounds – the “compassion” for Libyan oil contracts.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            They can’t win that game. They’re stupid to try it with us just because idiotic people refer to the USA as “neo-colonial.”

        • ahad_ha_amoratsim

          I still remember the hundreds of Jews martyred at York. And British complicity in the murder of Jews trying to break the Arab blockade of Hadassah Hospital during the mandate. And the White Paper of 1939.

  • brimp

    I am told by people of different backgrounds that it is common knowledge that: “Jews control the media”. But, if this was true then the information in this article would be the promoted to the masses. But it isn’t. Who is actually clouding the issues and why are they doing it?

  • herb benty

    The Hebrew Scriptures and the Bible clearly and emphatically declare that God gave the land of Israel to the Jews, that they would be overspread over the whole Earth, and in the latter days, God would unite them again in this land. The Messiah will come to a Jewish Israel at the end of this age. Now, pathetically, we see the powers of THIS world madly trying to stop God. It won’t work.

    • Gee

      Even the Qur’an refers to the “Land of the Jews”

      • objectivefactsmatter

        How inconvenient. Now we have to explain that lack of sharia is lack of justice according to allah. Sorry, we have to take over the world and force you to comply with our religious laws. Not our fault.

        • Bassam

          Idiot, how many times do I have to explain that lack of sharia in the US is your peoples loss. Dont worry, justice according to Allah is a sweet thing when it comes to the backward savages of USA.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Bassshole,

            Infidel Justice is coming your way.

            When we’re done with you, you’ll be cursing muhammed like and Infidel.

          • Gee

            You cowards have murdered more Muslims than everybody else in the world combined. I sure hope you continue to murder each other.
            Muslims are nothing but savage animals

        I read that in the Koran too. Jerusalem is mentioed hundreds of times in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, not once in the Koran.

        No it does not. F*cking lying filthy Jew!

          Ah another piece of sh*t – behave yourself boy before I have to step on your cowardly Muslim.
          All Muslims are stupid and cowards – that is the only explanation how us few Jews have so thoroughly beaten you in every war.

    The lies and myths found in the media today, shows how far propaganda can infiltrate our ability to reason. Tragically, the Muslim world, has the backing of anyone who is antisemitic and anti Israel, with huge sums of money available to them to invest in propaganda. Hate is learned, and in the Muslim culture it is endorsed. It is naive, to think that one can change aspects of a culture over night. It does not happen.

  • mikep1738

    Lies, Myths AND inaccurate terminology that validates the phony Arab narrative.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Lies, Myths AND Marxist (mendacious) terminology that completes the Arab circular logic of their false narratives.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    It’s not that difficult to understand. What’s happening in Israel is a run of the mill old fashion perpetual jihad being waged against the Jewish infidels by the Islamic totalitarian world through their proxies the so-called Palestinians to ultimately make Islam supreme in Israel and to render the Jewish infidels into harsh and degrading dhimmitude. All of their grievances, every last one of them, is hogwash, i.e., taqiyya, and used as a pretext to justify the perpetual jihad. As a matter of fact, the peace process itself is non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad utilized to weaken and delegitimize the state of Israel.

    Moreover, the jihad being waged by the Islamic totalitarian world against the Jewish infidels in Israel is not in any way significantly different from the jihad being waged by the Islamic totalitarian world against the Hindu infidels in India, the Buddhists infidels in Thailand, the Chinese infidels in China, the Orthodox Christian infidels in Chechnya and Russia, the Christian infidels in Sudan and Nigeria, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum. All you have to do is connect the dots, and there are more than enough dots.

    • Bassam

      F*ck you’re retarded. Every idiotic comment from you is exactly the same. sneaky Jihad this and sneaky Jihad that.

      You’re just deluded because you follow a Cult full of pedo preists who love young children and lets not forget the ones that are 100% gaaaay, f*cking eeewww.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Behave yourself Jihadi monkey.

      Now say that with christians instead and people just might believe you.

  • Marshall

    Kerry truly is the fool of fools and it should come as no surprise that this anti semetic will continue to blame Israel to appease his boofhead boss and of course those wonderful paragons of virtue the UN. Besides the lure of a noble peace prize before he becomes a nobody ( he is now, but he thinks of himself as important ) drives him on with a steely determination that only he can understand. Give it up Kerry, give up that sizable ego that makes you feel so self important. At the end of it all and when all is said and done, you are just like a vapour – Pshht and then you are gone.

    • ahad_ha_amoratsim

      Kerry has been on a fool’s errand since he started this task, and I can’t think of anyone better suited for the job.

  • Hass

    Westerners are not interested in Jewish history.

    They simply ignore it, especially when it fits Leftist and Muslimes agenda.

    • Bassam

      Charming! An apostate of the only true and peaceful of Gods religion telling us Israel is good. How pathetic of you.
      A big punishment is headed your way for leaving and insulting Islam.

      May Allah have no mercy on you and may his soldiers take care of all apostates as prescribed by the greatest of all prophets Mohamad (PBUH).

      And lastly, you realise you not only pay a big price for leaving the most high of all religions. Jew loving dog.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Bassam, May you and your family join your prophet of Satan called Muahammed in H E L L.

        Most Arabs abandoned the worship of the G-d of Abraham, Issac, and Joseph when they started worshiping the demonic entity known as Allah.

      Much as they do with any other sort of history, only moreso.

  • IsraelitJudea

    In fact, as Sha’i ben-Tekoa documents in his book Phantom Nation, the first U.N. resolution referencing “Palestinians” instead of “Arabs” occurred 3 years after the Six Day War, marking international recognition of a “Palestinian people” and nation as yet another Arab tactic in gaining support in the West by exploiting an idea alien to traditional Islam. Before then “Palestinian” was a geographical designation, more typically applied to Jews. Numerous quotations from Arab leaders reveal not a single reference to a Palestinian people, but numerous one identifying the inhabitants of the geographical entity Palestine as “Arabs.”

    ———————————

    If you haven’t read “Phantom Nation” yet, you must do yourself a favor and read it. The whole story about the Arabs’ invention of a fake people as a weapon against Israel is told in this book!!

    • Bassam

      AWESOME Obama is the BEST President in US history.

      And even though he denies his Muslim faith to westerners, he assures the Arab Muslims that he will never let anyone insult our beloved Prophet and he will stand with the Muslims when the time comes.

      God Bless the greatest President ever!

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Obama is a Muslim. OK.

        Was he also not born in the USA?

      • Gee

        Ah yes a pedophile, thief, rapist and murderer is your prophet. Soon Odumba will be gone and America will wake up and start playing Cowboys and Muslims.
        Ask the Indians how well they faired in Cowboys and Indians

      • Thomas L. Stafford

        God despises liars. I doubt Obama is blessed in God’s eyes. But, then arguing with fools is a waste of time. So I’ll quit.

        • ahad_ha_amoratsim

          So am I the only one who thought Bassam’s post was meant as satire?

          Hmm, reading further, I guess it wasn’t. Sorry, it was hard for me to realize anyone was really that dumb.
