Twisted CNN calls Muslim Brotherhood’s Abol Fotoh: an “Islamist moderate,” and his radicalism – “hawkish”.. Paul Cruickshank also glorifies Turkey’s Erdogan as some kind of a “model,” in the M.E.
Oh well. Call any (anti infidel) jihadist, from now on, a “hawkish.” Suits well the creeping submission to Islamization trend. Huh?
So, the rise in anti-Copt persecution and calls of “Itbach al Yahud” –Kill all Jews, for Islam [Nov. 2011]– in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Christian Winter (Arab Spring) is a “moderate hawkish” thing, I guess.
What on earth is a “moderate islamist” anyway? Is there such a thing as a “moderate fascist”?
Have you all not read what the Muslim Brotherhood aspires to, an all out oppressive Islamic Caliphate (and they are “ready to go…”), a world ruled by radical Islam UBER ALLES?
And how is Turkey’s Erdogan a “model?”
Because he is of he Islamic party AKP, that pushes for more Islamization in “moderate’ Turkey, where anti-Christian sentiments rise?
Because he is tied to terror linked IHH, which its infamous “Flotilla” (2010) called for the Jews to ‘go back to Auchwitz?’

MSM: ‘Ordinary’ Arab-Islamic bigots are “protesters”
When the MSM calls ‘ordinary’ Islamofascism – “protest”
It’s quite sickening when I watch BBC, CNN and others. Describing the anti-Israel vandals in Egypt [Sep. 2011] as “innocent protesters.”
As if the ‘ordinary’ Islamo-Arabs lay out specific demands, certain details to be met.
Let’s not skid off the truth, Israel is not welcome at all, in its entirety, even if Israel would spend the whole day giving candies to the Arabs.
Speaking of ‘giving.’ What exactly was the outcome when Israel gave, for example, Gaza, whereas Arab-Palestinians, never in history ‘had’ anything in the area – as a matter of fact? Only more Islamization, more Hamas acceptance [which was voted in following Israel’s give-away] and pro-violence that targets innocent civilians, especially Israeli children. So let’s not fool ourselves that Israeli’s so-called “policies” are the real reasons.
Of course there will always be incidents [Arab-Palestinians have quite an easy job in creating incidents, all they have to do is shoot behind civilians upon Israelis], which will serve as matches. But the gasoline is there, “Arab children are taught hatred of the Jews from their mother’s milk”* *.
Or as a writer has put it:
Their complaints are pure hypocrisy anyway. The Islamic world does not hate Israel because they care about the human rights of the Palestinians. If they cared about human rights they would have human rights in their own countries. The Islamic world hates Israel because, well, essentially because they are Jews. If they were Muslims, doing exactly the same things, no one in the Arab world would care. The main reason people focus on Israel is because it involves Jews.
Fact is, as a writer in the WSJ writes: Muslim Judeophobia is not-as is commonly claimed-a reaction to the Mideast conflict but one of its main “root causes.” It has been fueling Arab rejection of a Jewish state long before Israel’s creation.
Speaking of Islamism -specifically- in Egypt, Egyptian Cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub: The Jews Are the Enemies of Muslims Regardless of the Occupation of Palestine,… they are infidels
Take for example the cruel long Arab-Islamic racist boycott of Israel. Portrayed in MSM as some “activism…”
This antecedent movement is unabashedly anti-Semitic and racist, having started with a de facto boycott as early as 1922 against Jewish interests, not Israeli interests, 26 years prior to the establishment of the State of Israel.
The Arab League Council formally instated a boycott on December 2, 1945: “Jewish products and manufactured goods shall be considered undesirable to the Arab countries”. That, might I remind you, is a little less than 3 years before the establishment of the State of Israel and 22 years before the “occupation” began following the 6-Day War in 1967.
The Arab-League Boycott and the modern DFI are not one in the same; however, they share the same ideological roots of racism and anti-Semitism towards anyone from Israel. During the initial years of the Arab-League Boycott, all products, whether made by Jew or Arab were boycotted…
Despite Israel’s lack of importance and despite the weakness of the moral charges against it, Israel is an outcast. Israeli nationalism – Zionism – has been declared racism. The Arab League enforces secondary and tertiary boycotts against Israel. Jews may not enter Saudi Arabia, except for American soldiers. Malaysia forbids the performance of “Jewish” music. This endless policy of boycott and non-recognition is officially the policy of most Arab states. Countries like Libya… Saudi Arabia have never suggested that they would make peace if Israel did X or Y or Z. Their opposition to Israel, supported by leftists everywhere in the world, is one of permanent enmity. Since such a stance excludes the possibility of peace, it is implicitly genocidal and therefore radically evil.
In a classical example, an ardent anti-Israel “advocate”, who has -for a long time- called for a boycott of Israeli goods, jumped to the next step by calling (in 2009): “Do not buy anything from businesses run by the Jewish community.”
Arab cartoons portray Jews [not just “Israelis”] as non-humans. Influenced much by hate sermons along the Islamic “apes and pigs” * canard.
Best selling author:
It’s about the bigotry … Make no mistake: Arab racism is killing Jews. These bigoted myths and conspiracy theories brainwash Palestinian children to commit suicide bombings against Jews. Innocent children play death games, such as collecting “martyr” cards with pictures of suicide bombers.”
The Goliath Arab-Islamic Jew-hatred [anti-Semitism] is sad, horrifying. Suffice to see some translations from Arabic in MEMRI and in ADL’s documentation.* * *.
Conclusion: to the MSM, quit politicizing their deep blind hatred. There will never be peace as ,long as hate-education exist – the real problem. It may be more against Jews but it never stops there. An inscription in Arabic written on a picture of the PLO flag was drawn on a church top near the platform where the bishop spoke. It read: ‘On Saturday we [the Muslims] shall kill the Jews and on Sunday we shall kill the Christians’. In fact the Muslims of the region have long referred derisively and threateningly to the ‘Saturday people’ and the ‘Sunday people’.

Jewish Family Massacred? Not Big News for World
by Gil Ronen
As five members of one Jewish family were being laid to rest, news of their sadistic massacre had all but disappeared from the world’s leading news websites. As of 11:00 AM EDT Sunday the item was completely missing from CNN’s homepage, while appearing in a low spot on both the BBC and FoxNews websites.
While you get 422,000 results when you search for http://www.google.com/#q=itamar+massacre, yet, the MSM news agencies are far from seeing it in the human view.
When you search CNN: http://www.google.com/#&q=site%3acnn.com+itamar+massacre, it gives you only an “ireport”: Itamar massacre: Fogel family butchered while sleeping – CNN iReport Mar 12, 2011.

Biased CNN explains as “news” why Palestinians aim at children
At the CNN news ticker the following title of “news” appeared today (Dec. 21, 2010): “5 hurt in rocket fire, retaliation in southern Israel” as well as on the page: http://edition.cnn.com/MIDDLEEAST .
The HTML copied:
<li><a href=”/2010/WORLD/meast/12/21/israel.rocket.fire/index.html”>5 hurt in rocket fire, retaliation, in southern Israel</a> </li>
Though when clicking on the actual link, the content is different, as it has been altered a few times, since.
That exact title was copied automatically on those that subscribe to CNN’s feeds, e. g.: http://news.vivasoft.hu/the-news/17842-5-hurt-in-rocket-fire,-retaliation-in-southern-israel.html and http://359online.com/5-hurt-in-rocket-fire-retaliation-in-southern-israel/
This fits very well with the Islamists-appeasement policy that whatever they do, it’s just a reaction, when in fact the Arab Palestinians are always initiating the attack aimed at innocent Israelis at their homes or at kindergartens when the children are gathered there, or/and practicing the use of its own civilians.
The hidden message behind the headline which attempts almost to equate the two sides is so outrageous, as if there’s some kind of moral equivalence between those that seek death and destruction for all and Israelis that struggle so hard to defend lives. So is the naiive “understanding” that when Hamas says it does something as a “retaliation,” we should simply “believe” it. Since when is news media a mouthpiece for terrorists? No one should buy into it as a fact, or anything else beyond a Hamas’ propaganda argument – value. Neither CNN, nor anyone else can assert as “news” what is a “retaliation” and what is in fact, an excuse.
According to this twisted CNN view, it’s all a game, they are just both fighting each other, nothing about Israelis defending citizens from Palestinians seeking civilians as targets, or/and children when they go to school. Note also CNN’s general ommission of the Israeli exact location ‘KINDERGARTEN’ repeatedly a target
Moreover, it entails a horrific cheapening of Israeli innocent lives, that they’re hurt “only because of some retaliation” thing. an almost “natural” casualty of some ‘tit-for-tat’ myth. How dare CNN?
Again and again, CNN shows its real “news” colors, when its more of an opinion medium.
How about a simple non-opinionated news headline: “Palestinians fire at Israeli homes,” or “Palestinians attack Israeli kindergartens, again.” Just the facts. The truth for a change!

Re: Arab Helen Thomas, Arab-Palestinians get back to ARABIA where they came from?
“She should lose her job over this,” Fleischer said in an email. “As someone who is Jewish, and as someone who worked with her and used to like her, I find this appalling.”
“She is advocating religious cleansing. How can Hearst stand by her? If a journalist, or a columnist, said the same thing about blacks or Hispanics, they would already have lost their jobs.”
Thomas knows that she could never say the blacks should go back to Africa or the Hispanics should go back to Mexico, she would ruin her over-celebrated reputation as the “dean” of the White House press corps.
The Arab immigrants — who they, their children/grandchildren today are called “palestinians” since the 1960’s
From Time Immemorial – Evidence of Unrecorded Arab Immigration 9 Fred M. Gottheil, “Arab Immigration into Pre-State Israel: 1922-1931″
Britain’s naval and political reaction to the illegal immigration of Jews to Palestine, 1945-1948, Fritz Liebreich, Routledge, 2005, ISBN 0714656372, 9780714656373, [p. 30]
The Determinants of British Policy… Matters improved with the departure of Lieutenant General Sir Louis Bols on 30 May 1920, the ending of the military adminidstration and the appointment of Sir Samuel as the first British High Commisioner for Palestine. However, under constant pressure from British pro-Arab spokesmen and officials, relations between Britian and the Jewish Zionists deteriorated steadily.
A Very good exaple of virtuallly general anti-Zionist bias of successsive British mandatory adiminstrations would be the virtual continuation of the Ottoman policy of supporting or at least condoning non-Jewish illegal [p. 31] immigration to Palestine. In contrast to the near universal and general condemntation and confrontation with Jewish illegal immigration.
As a buffer against the Bedouin the Ottomans had already brought the first Circassians from the Caucasus to Palestine in 1878. These truculant habitual warriors had been settled by the Turks as irregular garrisons on the desert fringes, allowing them to occupy and cultivate land, and thus hold back the nomad Arabs, who neither paid tax nor tilled the land at any time. Egyptian immigrants were settled by Ibrahim Pasha in Jaffa, Acre, Nablus and Beisan, Moors and Kurds settled in Safed, while the Arab tribes of the Wulda, Bu Sheille, Lheib and Adwquat, having been defeated in tribal wars and raids, entered Palestine at about the same time as the first Jewish settlers arrived. These Arabs cannot be considered indigenous to the land and neither can the Turks, Kurds, Moors, Algerians, Egyptians and Circassians imported by the Turks as aprotective force. The virtually generally accepted British claim of an overwhelming Arab indigenous population, settled for a thousand years in a crowded Palestine, whe were in danger of being swamped and displaced by the Jews was, therefore, considered by the more extreme Zionists to be a rewriting of history.
Illegal Jewish immigration was always fastidiously reported by successive British administrations, while the very considerable Arab illegal immigration was only addressed when their detection has became flagrant. The British Mandatory authorities whose tasks included recording the comings and goings in Palestine, was occasionally forced to mention the illegal Arab immigration, but only when the battle became too prevalent. The movement was always underestimated, minimised and considered casual:
In addition to increase in recorded immigration, a number of persons are known to enter Palestine illegally from both adjacent and European countries and remain there permanently.
Considerable Arab immigration was indeed proceeding without restriction or record from such areas as Syria, Egypt, Trans-Jordan and Lebanon. There has been some immigration from the surrounding territories, which, since it avoids the frontier controls, is not recorded.
Jewish illegal immigration was minutely detailed and meticulously recorded but all references to Arab illegal immigration were, perhaps deliberately, obscured. The preponderant concentration on the Jewish illegal immigration overwhelemd and negated all record of the parallel Arab traffic.
Tewfik Bey al-Haurani, Governer of the Hauran, was quoted as saying, ‘In the last few months from 30,000 to 36,000 Hauranese Syrians have entered Palestine and settled there.’
http://books.google.com/books?id=LsgnW34jp90C&pg=PA31&dq=arab+immigration+palestineWho are the Palestinians and who is occupying what?
The word plesheth meant migratory referring to the migration of the Philistines into the sea coast of Israel. So the Palestinians of 3000 years ago were, in fact, the Philistines. The Philistines were not native to Israel, in fact, as their name implies, they came from somewhere else. Most scholars agree that they came from the Greek Islands, most likely Crete. Obviously, they did not speak Arabic and they were not Semitic like the Jews and Arabs. The Arabs came from guess where?–Arabia.
The Canaanites disappeared from the face of the earth three millennia ago…
Even the Palestinians themselves have acknowledged their association with the region came long after the Jews… Over the last 2,000 years, there have been massive invasions that killed off most of the local people (e.g., the Crusades), migrations, the plague, and other manmade or natural disasters. The entire local population was replaced many times over. During the British mandate alone, more than 100,000 Arabs emigrated from neighboring countries and are today considered Palestinians.
By contrast, no serious historian questions the more than 3,000-year-old Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, or the modern Jewish people’s relation to the ancient Hebrews.
“…[the Palestinian Arabs’] basic sense of corporate historic identity was, at different levels, Muslim or Arab or – for some – Syrian; it is significant that even by the end of the Mandate in 1948, after thirty years of separate Palestinian political existence, there were virtually no books in Arabic on the history of Palestine..”
“PALESTINE” – Never an Arab Country
there was no geopolitical entity called “Palestine,” no Arab nation ever set historical roots on this soil and no national claim was ever made to the territory by any national group other than the Jews.
Under the Mandate, the Jewish population continued to grow but while their immigration was progressively restricted, that of Moslems from the surrounding countries (Syria and Jordan) was completely free. As a result, attracted by the Jewish development of the country, the Moslem population increased rapidly and had attained majority by 1947. Palestinian Arabs Never a Nation “Palestinian” Arab nationalism today is a product of recent political and religious currents. Until the 1920’s no such national community had even existed in “Palestine”. This is why both the Balfour Declaration and the League of Nations Mandate charged the Jews of the National Home with guaranteeing the civil and religious rights of other inhabitants. No mention was made of other national rights of other inhabitants, as it was recognized that the only national claim to the area was that made by the Jews.
Palestinian people do not exist! They love to say her statement is patently false – an intentional lie, … The Palestinian people does not exist.
The True Identity of the So-called Palestinians
In this essay I would like to present the true origin and identity of the Arab people commonly known as “Palestinians”, and the widespread myths surrounding them. This research is intended to be completely neutral and objective, based on historic and archaeological evidences as well as other documents, including Arab sources, and quoting statements by authoritative Islamic personalities.
There are some modern myths -or more exactly, lies- that we can hear everyday through the mass-media as if they were true, of course, hiding the actual truth. For example, whenever the Temple Mount or Jerusalem are mentioned, it is usually remarked that is “the third holy place for muslims”, but why it is never said that is the FIRST Holy Place for Jews? It sounds like an utterly biased information!
In order to make this essay better comprehensible, it will be presented in two units:
·1) Myths and facts concerning the origin and identity of the so-called Palestinians;
·2) Myths and facts regarding Jerusalem and the Land of Israel.
I – Origin and identity of the so-called Palestinians
Palestinians are the newest of all the peoples on the face of the Earth, and began to exist in a single day by a kind of supernatural phenomenon that is unique in the whole history of mankind, as it is witnessed by Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist that acknowledged the lie he was fighting for and the truth he was fighting against:
“Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?” “We did not particularly mind Jordanian rule. The teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves Jordanian until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians – they removed the star from the Jordanian flag and all at once we had a Palestinian flag”. “When I finally realized the lies and myths I was taught, it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out”.
This declaration by a true “Palestinian” should have some significance for a sincerely neutral observer. Indeed, there is no such a thing like a Palestinian people, or a Palestinian culture, or a Palestinian language, or a Palestinian history. There has never been any Palestinian state, neither any Palestinian archaeological find nor coinage. The present-day “Palestinians” are an Arab people, with Arab culture, Arabic language and Arab history. They have their own Arab states from where they came into the Land of Israel about one century ago to contrast the Jewish immigration. That is the historical truth. They were Jordanians (another recent British invention, as there has never been any people known as “Jordanians”), and after the Six-Day War in which Israel utterly defeated the coalition of nine Arab states and took legitimate possession of Judea and Samaria, the Arab dwellers in those regions underwent a kind of anthropological miracle and discovered that they were Palestinians – something they did not know the day before. Of course, these people having a new identity had to build themselves a history, namely, had to steal some others’ history, and the only way that the victims of the theft would not complain is if those victims do no longer exist. Therefore, the Palestinian leaders claimed two contradictory lineages from ancient peoples that inhabited in the Land of Israel: the Canaanites and the Philistines. Let us consider both of them before going on with the Palestinian issue.
The Myth Of The Palestinian People – The answer is that the myth of the Palestinian People serves as the justification for Arab occupation of the Land of Israel. While the Arabs already possess 21 sovereign countries of their own (more than any other single people on earth) and control a land mass 800 times the size of the Land of Israel, this is apparently not enough for them. They therefore feel the need to rob the Jews of their one and only country, one of the smallest on the planet. Unfortunately, many people ignorant of the history of the region, including much of the world media, are only too willing to help.
All Things Beautiful: The Myth Of Palestine, Whenever there were Arab riots, Jewish immigration was restricted…
The Smoking Gun: Arab Immigration into Palestine, 1922-1931 – Middle East Quarterly.
by Judah Tzoref
The verbal Jihad legitimizes all means of demagogical rhetoric, spiced with shameless deception, just as the military Jihad legitimizes all forms of atrocious terrorism to undermine the existence of Israel. In both pursuits, the intent is to advance the “holy” cause of denying the Jewish heritage. Pursuing the “glorious” tradition of verbal Jihad, some fervent advocates of the Palestinian cause contract 4,000 years of the unique Jewish bond with the Land of Israel to merely 500 hundred years of past Jewish kingdoms.
The continuity of Jewish predominance within the Land of Israel was interrupted only by the Islamic conquest . The Islamic occupation successfully accomplished ethnic cleansing of the Jewish community through displacement, expropriation and forced inundation of the Land of Israel by Arab immigrants (a proven historical fact). All historical, scientific and non-Jihadic findings attest to the predominant Jewish existence in the Land of Israel over 2,500 years (since Abraham up to the ethnic cleansing perpetrated by Islamic occupation). […]
The absolute majority of the so-called Palestinians are descendants of the Twentieth Century Arab immigrants who searched for a rewarding chunk of the economical boom engendered by the returning Jews…
THE MYTH OF JEWISH COLONIALISM – IT’S TIME THE WORLD STOPPED SEEING MIDEAST CONFLICT THROUGH DISTORTED EUROCENTRIC LENS 14 December 2009 …The notion of ‘occupation’ and the use of the word ‘settlers’ reinforce the concept of Israeli ‘colonisation’ of ‘Arab’ land. Aside from assuming that the Palestinians must be the true natives because they look authentically ‘brown’,
The arabs in Israel…. Israel was never an exclusively Arab country, although Arabic gradually …
Jews are indigenous to the Palestine region and have lived there continuously for over 3,000 years
Zionists hoped to live in friendship and cooperation with the Arab population and believed that restoring the land would benefit everyone. Many Arabs welcomed this development, which also attracted Arab immigrants from … An estimated 25 percent to 37 percent of immigrants to pre-state Israel were Arabs, not Jews
There has never been a 2000 year absence. Jews have lived in Israel/Palestine for 4000 years and those Jewish families who have constantly lived in the country since Biblical times, the mustarabim, are the indigenous Palestinians.
The first Arabs came to the country in the 7th century in the wake of their conquering armies after the death of Mohammed. They’ve been immigrating, and emigrating, ever since, bringing with them their civil wars (in which Jews were severely persecuted by both sides) and their screwed-up environmental concepts that turned forest into desert. Other groups of peoples also immigrated to Israel/Palestine during this time, especially the Druze. (Today, if you call a Druze an Arab, you’ve just insulted him. This was told to me by a Druze.) Perhaps the earliest Zionist pioneers did have to fight Arab marauders and make the desert bloom, but they did not come to an empty land. Maybe it was sparsely populated, but it was not empty of Jews.
Subsequent decades of Zionist history have been characterized by trying to make peace with the Arabs, and totally ignoring the indigenous Jewish community, as if they didn’t exist. White America may have killed off the native peoples of America, but at least they acknowledged that they were there. The treatment of the Palestinian Jews by the Zionist immigrants reflected their treatment by the Zionist movement during the troubled years of the British mandate between 1917 and 1948. There were 4 periods between WWI and 1949 that Palestinian conflicts resulted in a refugee situation:
1920/1. The first Palestinian refugees were Jews. In the aftermath of WWI, British rule in Palestine supplanted 400 years of Turkish rule and a British administration was installed, headed by Ronald Storrs, governor of Jerusalem, and the Chief-of-Staff Richard Waters-Taylor. A week before Easter, Waters-Taylor, with the blessing of Storrs, had made a secret agreement with local Arab nationalist leaders to conduct bloody riots against the Jews of Palestine to show the world just how unpopular Zionism was. (See Benjamin Netanyahu’s A Durable Peace under the chapter “Betrayal.”) During the Arab pilgrimage to the site of Nebi Musa, believed by Muslims to be the burial place of Moses, the Arab masses were whipped into a frenzy and began to riot. This spread throughout the whole of the country beginning in Jerusalem. Their excuse to the world at large was that they were acting out their ‘legitimate’ grievances against the massive Jewish immigration into the country, fostered by the ‘lax’ British policy.
What they conveniently ignored was the massive Arab immigration into the country brought on by the economic opportunities introduced by the Jews. In fact, in the 30’s, President Roosevelt was reported to have commented that Arab immigration to Palestine far exceeded that of Jewish immigration (See A Durable Peace.) In any case, these riots were tame when compared to later riots. Seven Jews were killed, 200 wounded and women were raped. There were partial expulsions from various areas, such as from east Jerusalem, Jaffa, Gaza, and the tiny Jewish community of Khan Yunis, which consisted of just a few families. A total expulsion occurred from Lod. Many just left fearing more of the same, which indeed happened. In east Jerusalem, the remaining Jews were faced with massacre, but a defense force, organized immediately after WWI by Vladimir Jabotinsky, a WWI hero of Jewish Palestine, prevented this from happening. This organization was later to become the Haganah. As a result, Jabotinsky was arrested by the British and given a 15 year prison sentence. He was pardoned the next year due to international pressure.
The parliament in London was outraged at events in Palestine and quickly set about to dismiss both Storrs and Waters-Taylor. They created the office of High Commissioner, the first of which being Sir Herbert Samuel, a Jew. But the anti-Semitic administration still remained in the country. Samuel was a rather weak politician and the administration was successful in prevailing upon him to appoint Haj Amin al Husseini, the notorious Arab nationalist, as Grand Mufti of Arab Palestine, to appease the ‘legitimate’ Arab grievances. He later became a strong nazi ally.
The next year, Husseini orchestrated, with the full backing of the British authorities, a renewal of the most recent riots which resulted in the deaths of, perhaps, as many as 47 Jews. Of these, at least 13 were massacred at an immigrant hostel in Jaffa. The mob was actively aided by the Arab members of the local police. Consequently, more Jews were expelled from Jaffa and Samuel acquiesced to Arab demands and suspended Jewish immigration to the country while allowing Arab immigration to continue unabated. Partial expulsions occurred in Ramle, Beersheba, and Shiloah, the site of the original City of David and burial place of Rabbi Ovadiah Bertinoro, the late 15th century Chief Rabbi of Palestine. The tiny settlements of Kfar Saba and Kfar Malal (birthplace of Ariel Sharon), were totally destroyed and their residents driven out. Both were rebuilt the following year, but other communities were not so lucky. These refugees were either immigrants, or were families that have lived in their homes for generations. To anyone who could see, it was clear – it didn’t matter whether Jews were immigrants or not. The Arabs and British wished to clear Palestine of Jews, period. It is a policy that continues to this day.
In 1922, in a continuing policy of appeasing the Arabs, 75% of Palestine was taken away from the Jews and the Emirate of Transjordan was created, later to become Jordan. First the British, then the Arabs banned the entry of Jews from the area – a policy that continued until very recently. This put those communities of Arabs in Transjordan and even the Judean desert who were of Jewish ancestry in an awkward position. In 1948, these Arabs had always had good relations with their Jewish neighbors, but after 1948, most found themselves living on what became known as the ‘West Bank’ (and Jordan). They were often threatened with death by the other Arabs so that today, they would emphatically deny any Jewish connection.

How Strong Is the Arab Claim to Palestine?
October 01, 2004
There is a myth hanging over all discussion of the Palestinian problem: the myth that this land was “Arab” land taken from its native inhabitants by invading Jews. Whatever may be the correct solution, let’s get a few things straight: As a strictly legal matter, the Jews didn’t take Palestine from the Arabs; they took it from the British, who exercised sovereign authority in Palestine under a League of Nations mandate for thirty years prior to Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948. And the British don’t want it back.
[…] The Jews, meaning the people of the Kingdom of Judah, who, in their earlier incarnation as the Israelites, seized the land in the 12th and 13th centuries B.C. from:The Canaanites, who had inhabited the land for thousands of years before they were dispossessed by the Israelites. As the foregoing suggests, any Arab claim to sovereignty based on inherited historical control will not stand up. Arabs are not native to Palestine, but are native to Arabia, which is called Arab-ia for the breathtakingly simple reason that it is the historic home of the Arabs.
Not even a Zionist Jew would say that in America announcing that in public, you know why? because the most “moderate” Arab is more racist, far more bigoted and extreme than the most radical Zionist can ever be.
