Uncle Vladdi attempted to post this as a comment on: Venting The Stink Of Jimmy Farter: Two State Solution! Unfortunately, Blogger did not allow it, probably because of its length. I therefore post it here for the merit of its historical citations which amplify the falsity of the Falestinian Narrative. Unk. has included a link to his own blog at the end of the cmnt.,
"Concisely and accurately stated, as usual, Dajjal!
"Palestinians?!" WHAT "palestinians?"!
Where were the Palestinians?
In the New Testament, Paul notes that Gaza was completely devoid of life, containing "not even a solitary Bedouin."
And here's a more recent timeline - from the last 300 years or so - to confirm:
In 1695-1696, the Dutch scholar and cartographer, Adriaan Reland, (Hadriani Relandi) wrote: The names of settlements were mostly Hebrew, some Greek, and some Latin-Roman. No settlement had an original Muslim-Arab name with a historical root in its location. Most of the land was empty, desolate, and the inhabitants few in number and mostly concentrated in Jerusalem, Acco, Tzfat, Jaffa, Tiberius and Gaza. Most of the inhabitants were Jews and the rest Christians.
In Jerusalem there were approximately 5000 people, mostly Jews and some Christians. In Nazareth "Outside the city of Jerusalem, we saw no living object, heard no living sound ... a complete eternal silence reigns in the town, in the highways, in the country."
In 1844, William Thackeray writes about the road from Jaffa to Jerusalem: "Now the district is quite deserted."
In 1857, the British consul in Palestine, James Finn, reported: "The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is that of a body of population."
In 1866, W.M. Thomson writes: "How melancholy is this utter desolation. Not a house, not a trace of inhabitants, not even shepherds, to relieve the dull monotony ... Much of the country through which we have been rambling for a week appears never to have been inhabited, or even cultivated; and there are other parts, you say, still more barren."
In 1867, Charles Wyllys Elliott, president of Harvard University, wrote: "A beautiful sea lies unbosomed among the Galilean hills, in the midst of that land once possessed by Zebulon and Naphtali, Asher and Dan ... Life here was once idyllic, charming ... It was a world of ease, simplicity, and beauty; now it is a scene of desolation and misery."
In 1867, Mark Twain toured the Holy Land. This is how he described the land: "There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent - not for thirty miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents, but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride ten miles, hereabouts, and not see ten human beings. ... We had left Capernaum behind us. It was only a shapeless ruin. These unpeopled deserts, these rusty mounds of barrenness ... A desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given over wholly to weeds. A silent, mournful expanse... the country is infested with fierce Bedouins, whose sole happiness it is, in this life, to cut and stab and mangle and murder unoffending Christians."
Muslims don't believe in nation-state countries, they see them all as man-made, false idols. This is why these countries hadn't existed under the Arab caliphates, nor under the Turkish sultanates, for over 1,000 years.
<b>EVEN WHEN THE MUSLIMS RULED THE AREA, THEY NEVER BOTHERED TO RE-NAME IT TO "PALESTINE!" EVER!!!</b>
Originally, under the Greeks & Roman Christians, the countries in question were Libya, Syria, and Egypt (modern Jordan was part of Syria) and there was NEVER any separate "Palestine" nor "palestinian people" - EVER!
In fact, even the Egyptian-born Yasser Arafat, as well as all the kings of Arabia, have stated in public to the media that there never were, still aren't and never will be any "palestinian people!"
PLO Leader: The Palestinian People Does NOT Exist - March 31, 1977, Dutch newspaper Trouw -
PLO 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."
“FATHI HAMMAD” admits Palestinians are an invented people and are really Arabs from other Arab countries. Hamas official reveals where Palestinians came from.
Hamas Minister of the Interior Fathi Hammad Slams Egypt over Fuel Shortage in Gaza Strip, and Says:
"Half of the Palestinians Are Egyptians and the Other Half Are Saudis"
Al-Hekma TV (Egypt) - March 23, 2012
Obama wants to keep JUDEA and HEBRON away from Jews & Hebrews..."strange!"
And, let's not forget to mention that the reason the Turks lost these places in the first place - and why the Arabs gained them - was that the Turks had sided with Germany in WWI (and later, in WWII too)... so it's not as if any of "us" just went in there to colonialize the places; after all, the Germans always attacked first, upsetting the status-quo.
The Arabs had helped the Brits to overthrow the Turks, and so were rewarded with certain newly-carved-out countries (NONE of which was "palestine")!
And when, in 1919, the Rothschilds arranged the Balfour agreement and legally bought the previous Land of Israel back from Jordan, ALL the Arab kings and potentates agreed to the sale, laughing up the sleeves of their robes at the thought of taking so much money for what had been up until then nothing more than a literal garbage-dump. It was only after the industrious Jews, freshly exiled from Europe with knowledge of Western irrigation practices, made the dump bloom into a desert oasis, that the Arabs suddenly wanted it back, broke their words and treaties, reneged on their deals, and attacked the tiny nation en masse. And were soundly defeated for their treachery, again and again.
