Egypt to Strip “Palestinian” Hamas Leaders of Egyptian Citizenship

Why do they have Egyptian citizenship you might ask, if they’re really members of the ancient Palestinian nation? (est. 1991) It’s because they are Egyptians.

Much of the so-called Palestinian Arab leadership consists of Egyptians.

Arafat was born in Cairo in 1929, before Israel was even founded as a modern state. Mahmoud Zahar, a co-founder of Hamas, who was planning to vote in the Egyptian election, is set to lose his Egyptian citizenship.

And then there was Hamas interior minister Fathi Hammad who has a tendency to state inconvenient truths.

Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We are all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri [“Egyptian”]. Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims. We are a part of you.

Joan Peters’ important book From Time Immemorial had already documented much of this. And it’s why the left has spent a great deal of time trying to discredit Peters and her book.

Because if the so-called Palestinians are really nothing more than Egyptian and Syrian migrants, then the legitimacy of their cause falls apart.

The (1831-1840) conquest, by Egypt’s Mohammed Ali, was solidified by a flow of Egyptian and Sudanese migrants settling empty spaces between Gaza and Tul-Karem up to the Hula Valley. They followed in the footsteps of thousands of Egyptian draft dodgers, who fled Egypt before 1831 and settled in Acre. The British traveler, H.B. Tristram, identified, in his 1865 The Land of Israel: a journal of travels in Palestine (p. 495), Egyptian migrants in the Beit-Shean Valley, Acre, Hadera, Netanya and Jaffa.

The British Palestine Exploration Fund documented that Egyptian neighborhoods proliferated in the Jaffa area: Saknet el-Mussariya, Abu Kebir, Abu Derwish, Sumeil, Sheikh Muwanis, Salame’, Fejja, etc. In 1917, the Arabs of Jaffa represented at least 25 nationalities, including Persians, Afghanis, Hindus and Balochis. Hundreds of Egyptian families settled in Ara’ Arara’, Kafer Qassem, Taiyiba and Qalansawa.

“Ibrahim Pasha, Palestine’s Egyptian conqueror, had left behind him permanent colonies of Egyptian immigrants at Beisan, Nablus, Irbid, Acre and Jaffa. Some 500 Egyptian soldiers’ families established a new quarter [in Jaffa], and that was only one among countless similar situations.

This was always about the Muslim physical and cultural colonialism of the land of the indigenous Jewish population.

    Thank you for shedding more light on the pastiche that is the “Palestinian” people.

  • Veracious_one

    there has never been a Palestine…Palestine is a Muslim terrorist invention…it’s always been just that…

    • kikorikid

      but there was, most certainly, a JUDEA.

    • Moa

      Judea Palestina was a Roman invention. The province was called Palestine through several empires.

      What is an invented fiction is a *country* called “Palestine”. It was invented in 1967 (by Soviet disinformation specialists) as a way for the Jordanian, Egyptian, Syrian and Saudi Arabs on the borders of Israel to wage their stated goal of genocide against the Jews (as commanded by hadith Shahih Muslim 6985).

      Go Egypt!

  • Erudite Mavin

    The Egyptian government has the courage to take on
    Hamas ,Muslim Brother Hood, and other terrorists.
    No wonder the Radical Left and Libertarians bash the Egyptian Gov.

    The person who should be in the White House also has a clue about the
    Palestinians. Sept 2012 Mitt Romney said
    ‘Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace’

    the pursuit of Middle East peace is likely to remain “an unsolved problem” because the Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever” in reaching a peace agreement with Israel.

    “I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there’s just no way,” Romney said.

    • kikorikid

      Hamas is a militant arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.
      Currently the Egyptian Govt. is in the process of expunging the
      Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. The Morsi trial has produced
      at least informal indictments against Obama for aiding and abbeting
      the murder of hundreds of anti-MB protesters.
      Again, the “Loyal Officers” have taken control and will
      most likely find Morsi guilty of Treason, and hang him
      like Sayyi Qubt,(1966).

      • Erudite Mavin

        Have been following events in the Middle East for decades along with other areas.
        The various groups, Muslim Brother Hood, al Qaeda, Taliban, Al shabaab, boko Haram, Al Nusra and the list goes on all have the same basic aim, the destruction of Jews, Christians and anyone else who do not think and believe as they do.
        The terrorists who flew the plane into the Pentagon lived here in San Diego as did Anwar al Awlaki for over 4 years.
        Both the Radical Left and the Libertarians support this mindset, make excuses for them and blame America and Israel.
        The Left and Libertarians rip the Egyptian Gov. and support
        the MB radical Morsi.

        • Moa

          Please read “hadith Sahih Muslim 6985″. It is what ever pious Muslims knows, and the Lefties don’t. It is why there will never be peace in Israel until Islam is eradicated from the region.

          Similarly, Qur’an Sura 9:29 is why there will never be permanent peace between Muslims and non-Muslims until Islam is eradicated from the planet.

          Know. Your. Enemy.

          • Erudite Mavin

            I know Islam is the enemy, have studied their background, have dozens of books exposing their true background in taking over.
            It is the Libertarians who post on conservative sites who need to know and understand Islam is the enemy
            and stop being taken in by Ron Paul and his ilk who back Iran and the Muslim Brother Hood and blame America and Israel anytime there are terrorist attacks.

    Therefore the Arab Muslims are the true wanderers and invaders of the area. If so they should be deported to a friendly place such as Sweden or the UK. Will no doubt fully block their rusty and fragile health care systems.

    • Moa

      Actually, the Bedouin Arabs are the true wanderers. They are now Israeli citizens.

      The other Arabs from the modern countries of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia were brought in as cheap labor by the Zionists that created farms in the area in the late 19th Century (on land legally bought from large landholders such as the Sursocks of Beirut).

      Changing the region of “Palestine” to a fictitious country called “Palestine” was a work of art by Soviet disinformation specialsts, and subsequently pumped out by the jihadis and inhaled uncritically by the Cultural Marxists in Western “academia”.

  • Habbgun

    The so-called Palestinians have been thrown out of every place they go. Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia and now Egypt. Only the Israelis endlessly accommodate .

  • Fumby

    How many Israelis were born in other countries? What a pathetic article

    • Silver Garcia

      Correct but they came together despite speaking so many different languages and influences from those different countries. The invading and wandering Arab Muslims all spoke the same written and spoken language, despite a few accents. Same verb conjugation and pronouns.

    • Moa

      Israel’s immigration policy is up to the Israelis – because Jews are the oldest indigenous people of the area, and established kingdoms there over 3000 years ago.

      Bedouin(who are now Israeli citizens) came during the first Arab invasion in around 700 AD.

      Zionists migrated to the are in the late 19th Century after buying land from landholders such as the Lebanese Sursocks.

      The Zionists transformed swamps and other undesirable land into farms, but needed cheap labor to work the land. That’s when they hired lots of Arabs from what is now Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia to work the farms. The Zionists arrived *before* the “Palestinian” Arabs!

      The article is correct. It is you who is pathetic because you have no understanding of the history of the region – and you hate the article because its facts destroy the Leftist Narrative that has been fed to you. You’d rather be anti-scientific and cling to your false propaganda rather than have an open mind and learn about the true history of the region (which favors Israeli claims and shows the Arab claims to be mostly fraudulent).

      The most interesting thing is the fact that the imported Arab labor now claim the land as their own. The same thing is going to happen in Europe and the USA after a couple of generations after the flood of immigrants. Disinformation will take over and the native Europeans and Americans will be increasingly marginalized by counter-factual claims. You can see the tensions between massive population movements in places like Fiji (imported industrious Indians displacing the natives political power) and the Balkans (where the populations are all mixed up). The current immigration policies of Europe and the USA are destined to produce a ‘balkanized’ situation in the long term. Would make a great article if you think about it, Mr Greenfield :)

      • Silver Garcia

        And today it is the duty for the Israeli govt and supporters of Israel to financially support the removal of every Arab Muslim female ( at least) from the region. Best to remove all Arab Muslims but deprived of females they cannot procreate. I say dump them to the home of Thomas Friedman or George Galloway or Max Keiser. But seriously, Israel can do it, should do it and must do it.

  • truebearing

    Excellent article and invaluable ammunition against the blathering nit-wits on the Left who never let facts get in the way of their cookie cutter talking points.

    This is the kind of stuff that should be taught, every day, to students across America. We need a Greenfield feed to every school computer in America. Just imagine the number of exploding teacher’s heads were that to actually happen.
