End the “Palestinian” occupation of Israel.
Palestinian boss Mahmoud Abbas recently declared that Israel is “a colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness.” Moses, King David and thousands of years of Jewish history would disagree. Israel and the Jews are part of the story of human civilization. Over 50% of the human race has a holy book that tells of the Jewish journey to Israel. That includes Mohammed’s own copy of the Koran.
Israel isn’t a “colonial enterprise.” Palestine is.
Anyone who wants to find out where the name Israel comes from can open the Book of Genesis 32:29. The story even appears in Islamic hadiths. But where does “Palestine” really come from?
Palestine isn’t a Hebrew or Arabic word. The Greeks used it to describe the area. And when the Romans and their Arab mercenaries repressed the indigenous Jewish population, they renamed it all Palestine.
Palestine, after the Philistines: but why did the Greeks and Romans name the area after the Philistines?
The Philistines were one of the Greek origin sea peoples who had originally invaded and colonized the area. The Jewish resistance to Philistine colonialism is chronicled in the histories of Samson, King Saul and King David. It was natural for the Greek and Roman colonies that the Jews of the Second Temple era clashed with to use “Palestine”, the name associated with earlier colonies, to refer to their new colonies.
That latest phase of Greek colonialism led to an extended conflict between the Persian Empire and Greco-Roman civilization. The Romans made extended use of Arab mercenaries and rulers to secure their dominions. One such ruler was Herod, the son of an Idumean father and a Nabatean Arab mother, (according to the Greek historian Strabo they were both Arabic peoples), who repressed the Jews.
The eventual decline and fall of the Roman and Persian empires made way for the Islamic conquests of the region. But the Islamic bandit hordes had no original ideas. Their religion was a hodgepodge of Judaism, Christianity, assorted pagan beliefs and Mohammed’s violent fantasies. The rest of their culture they took wholesale from the Greeks. This game of historical Idiocracy ended with a collection of Arab colonists who call themselves “Palestinians” and claim to be descended from… somebody.
In Germany, Abbas declared that, “the nation of Palestine, throughout its long history, has been a beacon of generosity, and our people are an extension of the 3,500-year-old Canaanite civilization.” The Palestinian Authority that the unelected dictator runs was created in 1993. There was never any such independent country before that. And inquiring minds would love to know what an Islamic terrorist group and the Arab clans it oversees have in common with the Canaanite civilization. Fire, the wheel?
But then, Abbas also insisted that, “Mohammed the Prophet was a Palestinian”. According to Islamic tradition, Mohammed was an Adnanite Arab from Arabia. They claim descent from Ishmael and Abraham. That means they aren’t Canaanites. And a number of the Arab clans who make up the “Palestinians” do have their origins in Arabia. For a brief, shining moment, Abbas was telling the truth.
Previously, Abbas had also claimed that Jesus was a Palestinian. If you’re keeping track, that means the Palestinians are Canaanites, Arabs and Jews. That certainly covers a lot of historical bases.
But we’re just getting started.
“The Bible says, in these words, that the Palestinians existed before Abraham,” Abbas also insisted. The Bible doesn’t say anything in “these words”, but people took it to mean that he was claiming that the Palestinians were actually the Philistines. But then he took credit for the invention of the “Canaanite-Palestinian alphabet more than 6,000 years ago.”
There’s no such alphabet. The Palestinian Authority and Muslims in Israel use the Arabic alphabet which does have its extremely distant origins in the Phoenician Proto-Canaanite alphabet. But so does Greek, Latin and the letters you’re reading now. Like most of the “Palestinian” leader’s claims, it’s nonsense.
Within a few years, Abbas claimed that the “Palestinians” are descended from the Canaanites, the Philistines, the Jews and the Arabs. Only the last one is true. The “Palestinians” were part of a wave of Arab and Islamic invaders whose incursions continued well into the modern era.
There are some 10,000 “Afro-Palestinians” in Gaza. Some are African settlers who came in the 19th century. The anti-Israel left would have you believe that a Sudanese Muslim who settled in Israel in the late 19th century is an indigenous “Palestinian”, but a Jewish refugee from Egypt is a foreign “settler”.
The Arab Muslims who live in ’48 and ’67 Israel are made up of various clans from around the region.
Abbas has referred to Jordan and Palestine as “one people living in two states.” Hamas interior minister Fathi Hammad had once asserted, “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.”
The most famous Al-Masri is a billionaire who lives in a West Bank reproduction of an Italian villa named “The House of Palestine”, and was recently detained by the Saudis. Munib Masri served as a Palestinian Authority minister, holds a legislative seat and accounts for a quarter of the “Palestinian” economy. The greenhouse in his villa was a gift from Napoleon III to his mistress.
Masri, whose family name originated in Egypt, and claims to be a Palestinian, is actually a Saudi citizen who lives in an imported Italian villa. He made his money supplying the US military during Desert Storm.
That’s what a “Palestinian” looks like.
The “Palestinians” are Egyptians, Saudis, Jordanians, Senegalese, Sudanese and a number of other Muslim invasive colonists. They are not Philistines, Canaanites or Jews. They’re as indigenous as Al-Masri’s “House of Palestine” made out of imported Italian marble and filled with European art.
The “Palestinians” are what they always were: a foreign Islamic Arab colony inside Israel.
The Big Lie of Palestine is that the Islamic colonists are the indigenous population of Israel and that the Jews are colonizing Palestine. But an indigenous people can never colonize their own country.
“Palestine” is a twisted colonial fiction. The name reflects Greek colonization of the region. And its use by the modern Islamic colonists shows their lack of any actual historical connection to Israel.
After all the agonized wailing about the deeply meaningful “Palestinian” connection to “Palestine”, they still haven’t come up with their own name for the place. One that they can properly pronounce. (There’s no proper “P” in Arabic.) But Abbas keeps coming up with new lies about which ancient people the “Palestinians” are descended from this week.
I can’t wait until he claims to be Cherokee.
The claim of the “Palestinian” colonists to Israel is a lie of Islamic imperialism. The Muslim powers of the region have funded the racist attacks by the PLO, Hamas and other Islamic terrorist groups on Jews.
The “Palestinians” are not the victims of colonialism. They are its perpetrators.
The fighting between Israel and Islamic terrorists is a struggle between imperialism and colonialism. The imperialists are not the oppressed Jewish minority that has been forced out of nearly everywhere else in the region. It’s the Arab Islamic majority that represses minorities across the region.
“Palestine” is a pathetic attempt to launder one imperial identity with another followed by shameless efforts to appropriate the identities of nearly every ancient people in the region. Including the Jews.
The only way to end the conflict is to end the lies.

It shows the vast power of the left where any time they desire to leverage A claim against Israel, they just change the historical facts, and ignore all evidence and questions that contradict their new arab muslim victim Jewish guilt story. It does not matter what Trump or pence say or do as far as I am concerned, because 90%+ of the american media still continues to censor the Jewish peoples legal right to the land of Judea and Samaria 50 years after the war we had to liberate it from the jordanian occupiers, since there were no calls from the united nations demanding that the Jordanians surrender them. Americas media continued repetition of the ‘palestinian’ and illegal occupation myth for 50 years are the narrative of A bitter enemy, and the refusal to admit that arab muslims have no real moral claim to the land of Israel on account of being invaders there in the first place, who denied the Jews of the middle east equal rights for over A thousand years, and the reason they desire to deny Jews equal rights is because they wish to keep the Jews down so the cannot achieve economic freedom, and cannot exert real freedom of speech to exert their rights. Shows you how willing to ally with Jew oppression america is. There is A very hateful ruthless motivation animating the majority of the american establishment, and its aims are far more dangerous than the Israeli tv will warn you. The fact that the American right will not warn or expose the Jews of America or Israel, proves they are in on it. As long as the Israeli establishment is still subservient to the american narrative of lies about Israel and the Jewish people, then the Jewish people of Israel remain an oppressed people, with no knowledge of their enemy who has taken over their schools, media and politicians and demanded that they all say what A wonderful friend america is. This is an enemy that is trying as hard as it can to force as much censorship and Jewish submission as it can. The majority of americans do not accept the consequences of Jewish economic independence, along with the American asset owners who face A considerable short term reduction in the value of their American holdings with the exposure of Jewish inequality and an end to equality in general. The unified interests of the American people and the amercan asset owners motivates A very aggressive oppression indeed. Fear not, G-d is with Israel it is easy to see, because the results of equality are the enslavement and eventual extermination of the white American gentiles and Jews, the resulting influence on American assets is the delegitimization of the entire worlds economic system, the reduction of the entire worlds assets to zero, and that represents A greater destruction of capital than the acceptance of Jewish economic leadership. It is probably the case that in order to maintain order and reduce casualties, it is necessary either to reorganize living arrangements and borders without the clear understanding of the people of the world, or with the Jewish people speaking confidently about their rights, their entitlement to live free of violence and oppression. Both are acceptable, either the moral high ground, or lies and force behind the scenes. Not A complete confession followed by the probability of rejection and the entire population warring against the rulers. Either the people think the issue is the story of the Jewish people, freeing themselves from thousands of years of gentile spiritual and biological hostility towards Jews, that is more than radical enough to justify perpetual violence and violation of the rights of citizens through malicious acts. Speaking in the name of G-d, in the name of universal justice is sufficient to attain the consent of the leaders of all the nations of the world, and the future leaders. Leaders and peoples inevitably need to be desensitized to their anger over the idea of foreign peoples having more influence upon their race than they concede to. In order to fulfill the promise of justice, and keep the Jews of Israel from becoming corrupt leaders, they will need to expunge the evil that dominates the Jewish people and nation, but for now we can focus on the old sin of depending on the false idols of the nations of money and armies. In G-d I trust.
