Part 9. How Israel in 1948 committed Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians, about 400,000 within days in first stage Israeli historian Benny Morris might deny the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, but Jeremy R. Hammond own research shows that this was indeed how Israel came into being. The Israeli historian Benny Morris has been very vocal of late in denying that Palestine was ethnically cleansed of Arabs in order for the “Jewish state” of Israel to be established. In a series of articles in the Israeli daily Haaretz, Morris has debated the question with several of his critics who contend that ethnic cleansing is precisely what occurred. Not so, argues Morris. So who’s right? It’s worth noting at the outset that, while such a debate exists in the Israeli media, the US media remains, as ever, absolutely silent on the matter.

An overview of the crucial period from the rise of the Zionist movement until the creation of the state of Israel.

 

And what could be this Promised Land? And to whom?

Bishop Luke Khoury shared this story that Dayan (Israel defense minister) told the Indian reporter Karayanga in 1957 under the code name: Israel dagger.

Ben Gurion said: Israel need not build a mighty army. We will divide the States around us into smaller entities based on religious and ethnic enmities and clivage.

Moshe Dayan, in the footsteps of Ben Gurion, had a complete scenario of how Israel will expand and dominate the Middle East.

Even then, Israel planned to destroy Egypt’s fighter planes and its airport in the next preemptive war. The plan was executed in 1967.

Dayan saw that Iraq will be divided into three canton, Syria into 3 cantons, Egypt into 3 cantons, Sudan into 3 cantons, Lebanon in 2 cantons…

Dayan was not worried whether his statements will be published because:

“The Arab people don’t read what Israel publishes, if they read they won’t take us seriously, and if they comprehend the danger they won’t act, and if they act their actions are not sustained for any long period…”

35 years later, what Israel had planned has been carried out in Sudan and Lebanon. Iraq is fighting its war on this division scheme since 2003. Syria is valiantly doing its best in the last 5 years to avert its division.

The Saudi monarch Faisal begged President Lyndon Johnson in 1967 to give the green light for Israel to occupy Sinai, the Golan Heights, Jerusalem and the West Bank in order to give Saudi Arabia a reprieve from these progressive and anti-monarchist States such as Egypt and Syria.

The role is changing now:

1. The various Palestinian organizations and movements have been reading and translating Israeli books since 1970

2. Hezbollah in Lebanon is keeping up to date of Israel plans and statements

3. Iran is following closely Israeli positions

4. Syria is taking seriously Israeli programs

5. Israel has stopped reading and taking seriously what the States around it are saying and deciding.

The “Arabic” people and particularly the Syrian people in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine got it on the nail:

1. The Wahhabi Saudi monarchy is the real dagger in the body of the Arabic people. It is the source of Al Nousra and Daesh (ISIS)

2. Saudi Arabia is the main partner of Israel in the region and aiding Israel financially to expand its colonies in Palestine.

3. Saudi Arabia is the prime Zionist lobby in the USA and funding their lobbying campaigns at the highest levels

4. Saudi Arabia finally decided on a fatal action: getting directly involved militarily in Yemen and exciting its armed forces.

5. Take down this obscurantist monarchy, divide Saudi Arabia and this apartheid and expansionist Israel will cease to exist.

Note: Ironically, this is exactly what we call Greater Syria with northern borders extending further away to the Turkish Torus Mountain chains, including Cyprus.

This land is for the Syrian people who share the same culture, customs, tradition, language and myths in current States of Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Iraq.

كتاب خنجر اسرائيل و علاقته مع ما يحدث في البلاد العربية؟

قام صحفى هندى يدعى كاراينجا بنشر كتاب تحت اسم خنجر اسرائيل عام 1957 ونشر فى الكتاب حوار اجراه مع وزير الحرب الاسرائيلى موشى ديان قال فى حواره أن اسرائيل ستدمر كل الطائرات المصريه فى موطنها وبذلك تصبح السماء لنا وبذلك تحسم الحرب (قبل حرب 67) وكشف الصحفى عن وثيقة سريه اسرائيليه لتقسيم ارض العرب الى أقامة دوله اسرائيل الكبرى من نهر النيل الى الفرات من خلال تقسيم : العراق الى 3 دول هى (سنية فى الوسط – شيعية فى الجنوب – كرديه فى الشمال ينضم اليها كل الاكراد من الدول المحيطة )
سوريا تقسم الى3 دول (سنيه- علويه- درزيه)
لبنان تقسم الى دولتين ( شيعية فى الجنوب ومارونيه فى الشمال)
السودان الى3 دول – مصر الى 3 دول
وعندما سأل الصحفى ديان عن كشفه لمثل هذا المخطط كان رده :
(أن العرب لا يقرأون واذا قرأوا لا يفهمون واذا فهموا لا يعملون واذا عملوا لايستمرون)
وبعد صدور الكتاب ب 35 عام اي فى عام 1991 بدأ تقسيم العراق بنفس الكيفية المذكورة وقبله فى عام 1990 قام الشريف حسن الهندى بنشر مقاله فى جريدة السودان فى نفس العام ليحذر من محاولات تقسيم السودان وتقاسمه مع الدول المجاورة وكان أول من لفت الانظار لذلك حتى قسمت السودان فى2010 الى دولتين شمال وجنوبا وبقي الجزء الثالث غربا لم ينفذ والان جاء الدور على مصر فهل يسمح الشعب المصرى بغرس خنجر اسرائيل فى أرضة .
هذا اهداء منى الى كل ساذج وخائن ينفى نظرية المؤامرة فمن لا يقبل التاريخ يسقط فى افخاخ العدو وعملائه …

This is #Palestine.

Hold on! We are just killing and stomping dirty Palestinian babies. You know, the “other” dead in the statistics that don’t need to be mentioned.
People less than 70 and can still see don’t need to look at the gory pictures of maimed children

Biographies of a few existential nemesis to Palestinian people: Late Ben Gurion, Golda Meir and Arial Sharon (Part 1)

The Palestinian people were aware of the danger of Zionist settlement in Palestine since 1920, but they were railroaded with the peace rhetoric of the Zionist leaders, and waited for the next calamity to befall them.

In 1931, the Palestinian undertook a civil disobedience campaign against the British mandated power for denying them democratic elections, even in their towns and cities. This first Intifada lasted 3 years and England had to dispatch 100,000 troops to quell this mass uprising.

Nazi Germany learned and documented the horror torture techniques and methods adopted in Palestine by the British forces.

1. Golda Mabovitch Meyerson Meir was 5 when the Kiev pogrom broke out in 1902. Her elder sister Sheyna was already a Zionist and instilled this idea of the Promised Land (Palestine) in Golda.

At the age of 8, the family immigrated to the USA and settled in Milwaukee simply because the father Moshe got a job as carpenter in that city. Bluma is the mother.

She married Morris Meyerson who found work as calligraphist for shop signs and banners: He had hobbies in classical music, theater and literature.

In 1921, Golda dragged Morris with her to Palestine and started their adventure in the kibbutz Merhavia.  Why Golda re-immigrated to Palestine? She claimed that the Jewish philosopher during Jesus period had said:

“If I don’t agree with myself, who will do it?

If I only agree with myself, who am I?

If not now, then when?”

Golda moved to Jerusalem and had a son and a daughter before she joined the Histadrout located in Tel Aviv. Morris was forced to relocate again, against his wishes and the children were taken care of by nannies and Golda’s parents.

In Jerusalem, Golda used to purchase her goods from Palestinian shops and paid in coupons (Histadrout coupons?).

Once, a Palestinian fruit seller declined the coupons on the ground that it is becoming a huge pain to substitute them to real money, and that he had to pay commission to change them. Golda behaved as westerners usually do by leaving the coupons and moving on with the goods. The seller was unphased and chased her down the street and had the Palestinians and the British police block her advance.

The Jews in Palestine had a steady supporter of their “cause” by Major Orde Wingate, in charge of training only 500 Jews to be sent on missions of blowing bridges, setting explosives and disabling communication lines of the advancing German troops in Libya and Egypt.

Actually, Wingate trained far more than 500 soldiers, interpreting the order of training in batches of 500 since the British soldiers will be unable to recognize the particular Jews in training.

The Palestinian people were forbidden to be trained for fighting or of carrying arms.

In 1946, the British in Cyprus set up refugee camps for the Jews arriving from Europe. Golda was dispatched by Ben Gurion to strike a deal with Sir Stuart Ross. And Golda was able to repatriate all the kids less than one year old with their families, on the ground that the babies would die during the winter.

In Nov. 29, 1047, the UN voted to establishing two States for the Palestinians and the Jews.

Unfortunately, the declaration gave the minority Jews (less than 40%) over 56% of the land.

And the Palestinians refused this unfair deal and started a campaign of harassment.

The deal also promised the evacuation of the British troops within 6 months and the two sides prepared for armed uprising.

Ben Gurion needed $25 million to war preparation and Golda demanded a vote on who should go to the US in order to amass such a sum of money from the Jews. The members in the meeting voted for Golda instead of Ben Gurion. Her campaign in most US cities generated over $50 million, a sum that shifted the balance in weapons quality.

Golda was appointed Labor minister for a decade and then Ben Gurion appointed her minister of Foreign Affairs as Moshe Sharret decided to leave his ministry in order to lead the Labor Party. Ben Gurion asked Golda to change her name to the Hebew “Meir” (the illuminated) for her new assignment.

Prime minister Eshkol asked her to lead the Labor Party in 1967. When Eshkol suddenly died in 1969, the Knesset elected Golda as prime Minister.

During the 1973 war, Golda called her ambassador Simha Dinitz in Washington DC and ordered him to demand an immediate aerial bridge for all kinds of weapons which allowed Israel to re-occupy the Syrian Golan Heights and the Sinai.

Golda was re-elected for another term of 4 years, but her cancer forced her to resign and died at the age of 78.

2. Ariel Scheinermann Sharon “Arik” (The Lion)

Born in 1928 from parents (Samuel and Vera) who immigrated from Eastern Europe  and settled in a kibbutz in the Galilee valley called Sharon.

Vera had the ambition of becoming a physician but worked the land and the farm instead.  She lived to be 98 and died in 1988. Every evening at 6 pm, Ariel would call her and she never forgot to remind her son “Never trust the word of the Arab”, meaning the Palestinian. That was the advice that the Palestinians should have known “Never trust the word of the Jews in Palestine

Sharon joined the Haganah at the age of 14 and he became famous in Israel by the age of 25 following his savage campaigns against the Palestinians civilians and frequent massacres on villages.

He was nominated commander of the 890th battalion in 1953 and his violent and unstable character denied him any chance to become Army chief. He settled on political positions such as Minister of Defense during Lebanon invasion of 1982 and then Prime Minister in 2001.

He ordered the evacuation of the few Jewish settlements in Gaza in 2005.

Sharon married Margalit (Gali) who died in 1962 from a car accident.He also lost his son Gour in 1967 at the age of 11. He has two sons from Lily: Omri and Gilad.

He married her sister Lily who died of cancer in 2000 at the age of 63.

It was Lily who incited Sharon to purchase the ranch The Sycamores (400 hectares) in 1973 by the Negev.

Yasser Arafat sent Sharon a telegram of condolence knowing how much Lily meant to Ariel. In response, when Arafat died from poison in Nov. 2004, Sharon watched the burial ceremony on TV and commented to his son Gilad “A normal people would not waste an entire day participating in the mourning of this Dog

Mind you that Ariel Sharon is a Rabid Dog and war criminal who planned and executed the massacres in the Palestinian camps of Sabra and Chatila in 1982. There were no Palestinian fighters since they were evacuated by sea from Beirut a couple of moths previously. Over 3,000 civilians, mostly babies, women and elderly were slaughtered for three nights and two days.

Ariel Sharon had said: “I dedicated my life to extend the existence of Israel for another 30 years. Neither me, my sons or my grandsons will ever witness peace

Sharon died on Jan.4, 2014 after remaining in coma since 2005. For a stature of 1.70 m, Sharon weighted 147 kilos when he was wracked by a second hemorrhagic brain attack.

3. The worst nemesis to the Palestinian people was David Ben Gurion. He lead the Labor Party and instituted the Haganah and planned for a decade the genocide on selected Palestinian villages and towns: The plans were executed after he declared the independence of Israel in 1948.  The purpose was to frighten the Palestinians to vacate their towns and occupy strategic locations during the two wars for “Independence”

In May 1939, four months before WWII, England “White Paper” was read in the presence of David Ben Gurion during a meeting in the Histadrout. It stated:

1. It is not in England current policy to establish a Jewish State in Palestine.

2. As of today, the Jews will only retain 5% of the land in Palestine.

3. Immigration of Jews will be restricted to 15,000 a year for the coming 5 years.

4. Afterwards, no Jews will be permitted to immigrate without the prior agreement with the “Arabic” authorities.

Ben Gurion said in the meeting: “We will fight the White Paper as if Hitler didn’t exist. And we will fight Hitler as if the White Paper didn’t exist

Consequently, the Haganah (the armed faction of the Zionists) was to resume the immigration under the nose of the British navy.

Ben Gurion remained Prime Minister until he got too old to govern.

Most powerful woman. Angela Merkel: Good for the world, bad for the Middle-East

Angela Jenkzsch Kasner Sauer Merkel’s biography when she lived in East Germany for 35 years is relegated in the notes section.

This article will focus on Angela’s positions toward Israel and the Shoah.

Merkel position is correct that it is all the German people who lived in East and West Germany who bear the responsibility of the great catastrophes, all the Shoahs that were inflicted on the Slave, Russian, Greek, and Jewish people…

Taking “Principled” position that “racism will never rule the world again” has to be reformed with pragmatic policies regarding actual, on the ground, practices of apartheid and racism in Israel.

On many occasions, in the UN and in the Knesset, Merkel declared Germany commitment to Israel security as a “Jewish State“. She even forced “Jewish State” in her party documents.

It stands to reason that part of Merkel’s position to the State of Israel was developed and linked to her closest advisers as she started her political career minister of Woman and Youth and then minister of the Environment.

Apparently, the second most powerful woman is Merkel’s hand right woman Beate Baumann (a staunch Zionist supporter). Beate has been the closest person to Angela since Merkel was given the portfolio of minister for Women and Youth in 1993, and has been her personal secretary ever since.

Two other advisers were also Zionist supporters. One of them, Lutz Stavenhagen, was Secretary of State for Security Services, who cooperated with Israel security and secretly shipped them tanks make of components belonging to the National People’s Army. He admitted his responsibility and was forced to resign.

Sure, Angela is against Israeli settlement in the Palestinian occupied land, and she occasionally remind Israel of Europe stand on these policies, but resuming building free nuclear submarines for this apartheid State is not sending the proper message that “racism should never rule again“.

The Holocaust means “burning sacrificial (living species) for the God”

Shoah is the Hebrew term to mean “Great Catastrophe”.

The Israelis prefer the word Shoah on the ground that the Germans didn’t sacrifice the Jews for a God. I beg to differ.

Nazi Germany sacrificed the believers of the One God Jehovah because there was no room for Jehovah in the monotheist German One God Idol representing the Teutonic people. The two “One God” were archaic in nature and the battlefield had to be waged among two people believing that they are the “superior race“.

The German people during WWII were not fighting for Hitler or Jesus… They were bound by a superior Religious sect that should dominate the other sects in “Continental Europe” from France to the Pacific.

There were countless Shoahs during the occupations of Nazi Germany: there were great catastrophes that befell the Slave people in Yugoslavia, the Russians, the Tzigans, the Greeks… Every people that lived in the Vital Space of Teutonic Germany.

The Jews may stick to this succinct word of Shoah, but it is to be reminded that over 60 million people suffered the same malevolent and “terminal” decision to displace other omnipotent “monotheist” Gods.

Merkel is blinded into not taking a strong stand against Nazi Israel who committed the Shoahs against the Palestinians, the Iraqis, the Lebanese and currently the Syrians, displaced all over the world in order for the “Superior Race” to dominate in its vital space in the Near East region.

Merkel supported Israel preemptive war on Gaza in 2008 and went as far as dispatching German navy, a first since WWII, to “monitor” any shipment of arms to Gaza.

Actually, the German navy mission was to cover the frequent missions of Israeli navy to commit assassinations on Syrian officials on the Syrian shores and allow shipments of arms to the Syrian insurgents into the port of Tripoli (Lebanon).

Merkel is angry with Israel Netanyahu PM frequent decisions to continue building settlement in Palestinian lands in opposition of the EU consensus to stop the building of settlements, and she finally had to come full circle in acknowledging the existence of a “Palestinian State” at the UN.

The claim that Angela position on the State of Israel stands out from the successive German Chancellors is not correct.

Since the establishment of Israel, Germany extended more economical, financial and military aid to Israel than the USA before the preemptive war of 1967.

In around 1955, Ben Gurion negotiated a $2 billion aid with Adenauer (A sum that far exceeded the combined GDP of all the “Arabic States” at the period. While Israel secret agents were hunting down, tracking and assassinating German scientists working in Egypt.

Note 1: Angela was born in Hamburg in 1954. The family moved to East Germany and settled in the city of Templin. The second largest Soviet garrison was located in Vogelsang, close to Templin.

The father Horst Kasner (Kazmierczak) was the pastor of Waldhof (forest court) and dean of the protestant Pastoral College and trained clergymen in rhetoric and oration.  The mother Herlind Jentzsch taught English and Latin.

Angela claims to be a quarter Polish since her grandparents were born and lived in the province of Posen.

Angela was excellent in mathematics and the Russian language and she loved the Russian literature and culture.

The family watched West Germany programs on TV and the sports on the East German TV.

Angela studied physics at the Karl Marx Univ. in Leipzig in 1973 and resumed her higher education at the Academy of Sciences in Berlin. She was the only woman working in the field of quantum chemistry and got her PhD in 1984.

She researched her topic in the Heyrovsky Institute in Prague. At the age of 23, she married the physicist Ulrich Merkel in 1977 and they divorced in 1982. She remarried with Dr. Joachin Sauer 15 years later.

After the divorce, Angela hitch-hiked through southern Russia to Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan.

Before the unification of Germany, Angela managed to travel to West Germany only once to attend a wedding of a cousin, although she lived in East Berlin for decades. Her brother is Marcus and her 10-year younger sister is Irene.

Naqab desert, transfer of Palestinian Bedouins… And the “Prawer plan law”?   

Israel’s Prawer plan, which passed a first reading in parliament in June, aims to expropriate over 800,000 dunams of land in the Naqab desert (a dunam is the equivalent of 1,000 square meters) and expel about 50,000 Palestinian Bedouins.

35 unrecognized villages would also be demolished, culminating in unnervingly a blatant ethnic cleansing campaign that will occur under the nose of the international community. These Palestinian Bedouins will be expelled to one percent of the land.

Linah Alsaafin posted This July 15, 2013 on The Electronic Intifada: “Palestinian national strike to stop Israel’s “Prawer plan” ethnic cleansing”

Prawer plan”?  Ethnic cleansing plan of Palestinians?

 

(Wissam Nassar / Maan Images)

On Twitter and Facebook, the hashtags #StopPrawerPlan and #برافر_لن_يمر have been used to mobilize and create awareness.

Monday, July 15, 2013 has been designated as a national day of rage and “Anger Strike” by Palestinians from the river to the sea. Gaza and the West Bank have also planned for protests to take place on Monday.

Unsurprisingly, the PLO has denied (Arabic) issuing a statement that supported the Anger Strike.

The main protest took off from Ben Gurion University in Bir al-Saba at 10am on Monday and marched to the building of the Bedouins Settlement Authority. So far, 14 Palestinians have been arrested, including two minors.

Cities, towns, and villages inside the 1948 occupied territories including the Galilee in the north, the Triangle in the center, and the coast have organized their protests at busy street junctions, squares and roundabouts.

Abir Kopty has put together a schedule of the protests that will happen today throughout Palestine.

Why now?

Why carry out the largest demolition, land confiscation and forced displacement campaign now?

Anas Abu Daabas, president of the Academics Association in Rahat, explained at a 20 April seminar held by the al-Bireh Municipality I attended.

In recent years the largest economic hardship Israel has faced is the housing crisis, he said. Israel seeks to take advantage of the vast lands of the Naqab by building towns and cities for soldiers who will be closer to the military training camps, which Israel has transferred to the south of the country. This plan comes at the expense of the indigenous, who they mis-characterize as “invaders” and “nomads.”

“The embodiment of racial discrimination”

Amir Qweider, a student at Ben Gurion University who lives in the unrecognized village of Zarnouq, spoke at the same seminar about the reality of Bedouin villages in the Naqab. They are forbidden to house any permanent structures and risk immediate demolition if they do so.

There are no paved roads, no schools, no electricity or water grids, no telephone lines, and no sewage system,” he said. “The difference between the Jewish settlements and Arab villages is the embodiment of racial discrimination, even though we both are Israeli citizens.”

“Using the term ‘nomads’ to classify us is a way for Israel to justify the colonizing and settling of the Naqab, saying that since we roam the lands we do not own them,” Abu Daabas said, “but that is an outright lie. Our forefathers and tribes lived in villages, and [the Israeli lie] doesn’t explain why we still have structures of buildings like schools and homes dating to before the Nakba.”

On 30 March 1976, thousands of Palestinian citizens of Israel protested at the state’s announcement it would confiscate 60,000 dunums of Palestinian land. A general strike was organized from the Naqab desert to the Galilee, and the Israeli army killed six Palestinians as protests ensued. This became known as Land Day and is commemorated every year.

Palestinians should all take to the streets today and protest Israel’s land grab of 800,000dunams in the Naqab. Just as Land Day, in the words of Arjan El Fassed, “reaffirmed the Palestinian minority in Israel as an inseparable part of the Palestinian and Arab nation,” the Anger Strike of 15 July asserts that despite political division, non-representative and collaborative leadership, Palestine remains from the river to the sea, with the Bedouins in the Naqab an integral component of the Palestinian population.

Jerusalem, Sakhnin, Yafa, Umm al-Fahem, Shifa Amro, Gaza, Nablus, Hebron, Jenin, Upper Galilee, Ramallah, Kufr Kanna, Nazareth, Haifa. Israel can’t win on this.

History of Israeli land grab

The Naqab desert, historically neglected in Palestinian discourse, makes up 60 percent of Palestine, and its importance was not lost on David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister. In a letter to his son Amos written in 1937, Ben Gurion emphasized how total colonization of the Naqab is essential for Israel’s settler colonial concept:

We must expel Arabs and take their place … and if we have to use force, we have force at our disposal not in order to dispossess the Arabs of the Negev, and transfer them, but in order to guarantee our own right to settle in those places.

The ethnic cleansing campaign of 1948 affected 90 percent of the Naqab’s population, who were forcibly displaced to Jordan, Gaza and the Sinai desert.

About 11,000 Bedouins remained in the desert, and between the years 1948-1965 were forced to live under an Israeli military regime. Internal displacement forced many of these Bedouins around the Bir al-SabaJaffa road to an area called Siyaj, on the border close to Hebron.

Under the occupation policy of confining the biggest number of Palestinians on the smallest percentage of land, Israel used a number of laws like the Land Ordinance Law, the Land Acquisition Law, and the Absentee Property Law to consolidate their land grabbing of the Naqab and legalizing the dispossession of the indigenous population. In 2004, the Expulsion of Invaders law was put into effect, demonizing Bedouins as trespassing attackers in their own land.

Between the years of 1993-2007, Israel increased demolitions of Bedouin homes, buildings, and other structures. On 11 September 2011, the Netanyahu government approved the Prawer plan, named after Ehud Prawer, the former deputy chair of national security. In that year alone, 1,000 houses were demolished and 2012 continued in the same vein.

In 1969 and throughout the 1970s, Israel planned seven townships to push the Bedouins in, as part of its grandiose scheme of settling one million Jews in the desert. The largest of these townships today is called Rahat, ranked two out of ten on the Israeli socio-economic ladder, and has 60,000 Palestinian Bedouins living there.

There are 46 Bedouin villages (which have existed since before 1948), with 35 of them unrecognized by the Israeli state. The remaining ten are supposedly recognized but they are not offered even the most basic of government services.

“I acknowledge Apartheid Exist” Noam Chomsky, and Ben Gurion

Ben Gurion, Israel first Prime Minister, had a strategic plan before the creation of Israel by a single vote in the UN in 1948.

He stated clearly: “We will create a Christian State on our northern border, beyond the Litany River. We will ally with this Christian State (Lebanon).

After we destroy the “Arabic armies”, bomb Amman (Capital of Jordan), we shall enter the West Bank (in Palestine). These preemptive wars will put Syria on its knees and surrender to the existence of Israel.

If Egypt is still enthused on confrontation, we will bomb Port said, Alexandria, Cairo…

In this way, we shall get revenge for our forefathers with the Egyptians, the Assyrians, and the Arameans (Canaan)…”

In his diary of July 18, 1948, Ben Gurion wrote:

“If I were an Arab leader, I  would never sign an accord with Israel. This is plainly normal: We have taken their country. It is true that God had promised us this land, but how this should be any of their concern? Our God is not their God. There have been anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler,  Auschwitz… Are these event of the Palestinian Arab’s faults? They should see a single matter: We have stolen their country.  Why should they accept this theft?

We have to do everything to insure that the Palestinians never return. The old Palestinians will die, and the younger ones will totally forget…”

Shlomo Zand wrote in 2009  “The Invention of the Jewish People”.

Zand insisted on the separation between going on pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the myth that it was a Jewish city.

The successive exodus stories in the Jewish bible were myths, and the concept of a National State built on Zionism is also a myth, and plainly invented in the last century…

Freud was invited to head the State of Israel as President (an honorific position) after Einstein declined the offer.

Freud said: “And do we have to kick out entire people out their lands, every time a Jew bangs his head on the lamentation wall”?

“O Jews of the world. Free yourself from Zionists and save yourself from another holocaust”

Noam Chomsky wrote:

One of the most effective devices is to encourage debate, but within a system of unspoken presuppositions that incorporate the basic principles of the doctrinal systems.

These principles are therefore removed from inspection; they become the framework for thinkable thought, not objects of rationale consideration

Memoirs of a Zionist Realtor who sold lands to Jewish Funds: Youssef Nehmani

The original Hebrew title is “Youssef Nehmani: The Man of Galilee“.  The diary chapter spans the period 1935-1949, and the letters cover the period from 1912 to 1964.

Youssef Nehmani was born in Russia in 1891 and immigrated to Palestine in 1907. He worked in the vignard in Jerusalem, in the colony of Zakhroun Yaacov, and got engaged in the party of Bou Aali Tessyoun (Zion workers).

Many Palestinians, particularly large landlord Lebanese who owned vast properties in north Palestine, sold their lands to Zionists and Jewish organization, decades before the UN decided to partition Palestine. The total private land that the Zionist Funds managed to acquire was 5.7% of Palestine, and yet the UN gave the minority Jews 53% of Palestine in 1947!

What follows is an account that the Palestinian peasants hardly sold their properties: It is the foreign landowners such as the feudal families in Lebanon and Syria who sold the most fertile lands to the Zionist Funds.

A few sources are available, but no serious extensive research studies have been conducted, strong with documents, on the mechanism of selling lands to Jewish settlers…

There are the books published in English such as of Saleh Massoud Abu Basir “The struggle (Jihad) of Palestinian people, 1968”; Hind Amine Badiri “Palestinian Lands, 1998”; Yaacoub Khoury “Arab properties and the tied up money in Palestine”; Sami Hannawi…Zionist sources in Arabic are almost inexistent, save Jacques Cato “The problem of land in the Palestinian/Israeli cause (1917-1990)”; Tamar Goujansky “Development of capitalism in Palestine, 1987”

Sources mention that Zionist Organizations bought till 1948 over two million donom, and barely 70 thousand donom from private Palestinian peasants.

In the early 1920, the Jewish settlers used cavalry to protect their colonies (Hayrden in Galilee)from the bedouin of Houran who descended on the colonies such as Dagania in Tiberias, and these bedouin were called “Arab”, instead of “E3rab”. The Palestinian peasants refrained from attacking the Jewish colonies in north Palestine until much later, as the British mandated power started waves of harassment against the Palestinian people.

The author wrote that the Jewish Yishouf started transforming their German rifles to be compatible with Turkish ammunition, and that “the daily life among the Jews was poisoned because they could not withstand one another, and work was totally disorganized in the colonies”.

In 1911, Youssef joined the  Hashomer organization (the Guardian) till 1920 and relied the Hebrew cavalry in Galillee. He was successful in Real Estates and sold many properties to Israel National Fund (Hakirn Hakimet Israel).

Youssef Nehmani was appointed manager of the Israel National Fund for East Galili region (Hula, north of Bissan, up to the environ of Safad). Nehmani could not grasp the reason why Ben Gurion was not hot in buying more lands. Actually, Ben Gurion had decided to conquer these lands by force, and free of charge, after the Bell Paper suggested the partition of Palestine in 1937.

Nehmani had tight connections with Palestinian authority figures such as Khalil Francis, Bishop Akil (right hand of Lebanese Patriarch), Elias Nammour from Beirut, Abed Hussein Bezi (from Bent Jbeil, south Lebanon), abed Ghani Mardini and Na3im Choukeir (from Meiss Jabal, south Lebanon), Nassib Ghabriel (from Hasbaya, south-east Lebanon), Ali Abdallah, Khalil Farhat, and 3adel Badir…who sold their properties to him…

In late April 1997, the Nazareth daily “Fasl Makal” listed the Palestinian landlords who sold their properties to Jews between 1918 to 1945, and based on British archives. You have Muhammad Taher Husseini (father of Amine Husseini), Moussa Kazem Husseini, Moussa Alami, Ragheb Nashashibi, Ibrahim Fahou, Youssef Fahoum, Toufic Fahoum, Yacoob Ghoussein, family of Rock, Awni Abd Hadi (leader of the Independence Party and who sold the lands in Wadi Hawareth (3amik Hawfar), Judge Kanaan…and all these people were the leading Palestinian politicians before the Nakba of 1948.

Nehmani relates how he bought Hrawi Mountain and the lands in the town of 3adaissi (south Lebanon), Jahoula, and Buwaysieh in 1938, and the lands in Meiss Jabal, Muteleh, Manara, malikeyeh and Awlam in 1945…

He bought Kherbet Sobh from Elias Katit where the two colonies of Hanita and Yaalon were settled. The Emir of the “Arab” Faghour (bedouin) sold the lands of the village Khassass in 1939, where the terrorist Zionist Hagana committed genocide in 1947.

Nehmani bought lands from the family of Farhat in 1944, Ahmad Al Assaad, Mahmoud Al Assaad, and Salib Sobh (from Safad), Kamel Hussein, Ahmad Mardini, and Zaki Rokabi in the village of Kyam al Walid. Kamel Hussein, leader of the tribe Ghawarina sold properties in Hula.

The Lebanese feudal lord, Khaled Chehab, had very strong ties with the Zionist movement and sold his properties in the village of Ghabissieh.

The Lebanese landlords of Sursok, Salam, Tayan, Tuweini, Khoury, Biham, Kabbani, Omran, Sabbagh, Keir Dine Ahdab,…sold the Zionist Funds the most fertile lands.

The same goes to famous Syrian families who owned vast fertile lands in Palestine…These feudal landlords sold prior to election campaigns and they ruled Lebanon and Syria for many decades, and still bear heavy influence in the social/political structure.

The Palestinian peasants barely sold his properties, and the few ones who did were executed during the first Palestinian Intifada of 1935-38.  The foreign lanlords were living away from Palestine and they could not be reached for exactions.

The total private land that the Zionist Funds managed to acquire was 5.7% of Palestine, and yet the UN gave the Zionist State 53% of Palestine in 1947!

Note 1: Review was published by Sakr abu Fakhr in the Lebanese Daily Al Safir.  The book was assembled and published by Youssef Faytz in Hebrew in 1969, and translated in Arabic byElias Shoufani in 2010.

Note 2: Below is the Arabic list of the Lebanese and Syrian landlords who sold their vast properties to the Zionist Funds, along with the size of the lands and when, as published by the daily Al Safir:

«» (  لقد حصلوا عليها، عدا البائعين الفلسطينيين، من بعض أفراد العائلات التالية
1- آل سرسق اللبنانيون (ميشال ويوسف ونجيب وجورج) وهؤلاء باعوا أراضي الفولة ونورس وجنجار ومعلول في سنة 1910، ثم باعوا مرج ابن عامر بين سنة 1921 وسنة 1925، وبلغ مجموع ما باعه أفراد هذه العائلة 400 ألف دونم.
2- آل سلام اللبنانيون الذي حصلوا في سنة 1914 على امتياز تجفيف مستنقعات الحولة من الدولة العثمانية، واستثمار الأراضي المستصلحة، لكنهم تنازلوا عنها للوكالة اليهودية. وبلغت المساحة المبيعة 165 ألف دونم.
3- آل تيان اللبنانيون (أنطون وميشال) الذين باعوا وادي الحوارث في سنة 1929 ومساحته 308 آلاف دونم.
4- آل تويني اللبنانيون الذين باعوا أملاكاً في مرج ابن عامر وقرى بين عكا وحيفا مثل نهاريا وحيدر وانشراح والدار البيضاء. وقام بالبيع ألفرد تويني.
5- آل الخوري اللبنانيون الذين باعوا أراضي قرية الخريبة على جبل الكرمل والبالغة مساحتها 3850 دونماً. وقام بالبيع يوسف الخوري.
6- آل القباني اللبنانيون الذين باعوا وادي القباني القريب من طولكرم في سنة 1929، وبلغت مساحته 4 آلاف دونم.
7- مدام عمران من لبنان التي باعت أرضاً في غور بيسان في سنة 1931 مساحتها 3500 دونم.
8- آل الصباغ اللبنانيون الذين باعوا أراضيَ في السهل الساحلي.
9- محمد بيهم (من بيروت) الذي باع أرضاً في الحولة.
10- أسوأ من ذلك هو أن خير الدين الأحدب (رئيس وزراء) وصفي الدين قدورة وجوزف خديج وميشال سارجي ومراد دانا (يهودي) والياس الحاج أسسوا في بيروت، وبالتحديد في 19/8/1935 شركة لشراء الأراضي في جنوب لبنان وفلسطين وبيعها. وقد فضحت جريدة «ألفباء» الدمشقية هذه الشركة في عددها الصادر في 7/8/1937.
11- آل اليوسف السوريون الذين باعوا أراضيهم في البطيحة والزويّة والجولان من يهوشواع حانكين ممثل شركة تطوير أراضي فلسطين.
12- آل المارديني السوريون الذين باعوا أملاكهم في صفد.
13- آل القوتلي والجزائرلي والشمعة والعمري السوريون وكانت لهم ملكيات متفرقة باعوها كلها.
هؤلاء هم مَن وضع مساحات كبيرة من الأراضي بين أيدي الصهيونيين، علاوة على الأراضي التي كانت بين أيديهم أو التي منحتها لهم سلطات الانتداب الإنكليزي مثل امتياز شركة بوتاس البحر الميت (75 ألف دونم)، وامتياز شركة كهرباء فلسطين أو مشروع روتنبرغ (18 ألف دونم)، وقبل ذلك ما نالوه من الدولة العثمانية (650 ألف دونم)… وهكذا. أما الفلاحون الفلسطينيون، ولا أقول المالكين الفلسطينيين الأثرياء الذين باعوا وقبضوا مثل غيرهم من المالكين العرب الغائبين، فقد جرى التحايل عليهم بطرق شتى، فسلبوهم القليل مما كان بين أيديهم من الأرض، وهو يتراوح بين 68 ألف دونم و150 ألف دونم.
في معمان ثورة 1936 جرى الاقتصاص من بعض بائعي الأرض ومن السماسرة العرب، فاغتيل عدد منهم، وامتنع الباقون عن الاستمرار في هذا العار. لكن الاقتصاص من المُلاّك الغائبين كان من المحال، فلم يقتص منهم أحد، بل باعوا أراضيَ ليست لهم في الأصل، بل آلت إليهم من خلال حق الانتفاع لا من ملكية الرقبة في العهد العثماني. ولعل فضح انحطاط أصحاب تلك الأسماء، وكشف اللثام عما فعلوه في فلسطين، هما نوع من القصاص الرمزي، وهو الأمر الوحيد الممكن في هذا الميدان.
