US native Indians had to be eradicated: No owner of the land could be enslaved or bought. And they imported Blacks

And the Palestinians are Not about to be bought out so that immigrant Jews own the Land in Palestine. The Palestinians turned out to be much tougher to subjugated as all the colonial powers occupiers ever considered.

شعب للبيع بخمسين مليار دولار

.فضيحة العصر: اعطنا نهر الاردن وخذ زجاجة كوكا كولا بقلم نارام سرجون ومني مشاركة..
ككل شيء في اميريكا هناك ثمن للبشر ..

ففي اميريكا يحولون كل شيء الى فاتورة وأوراق نقدية .. حتى الوجع والالم له ثمن يباع في مكاتب المحاماة والمحاكم .

. السعادة ايضا لها ثمن حسب نوعها مثل سندويشة الهامبرغر كبيرة او صغيرة .. حتى الله يبيع ويباع في اميركا بالفواتير .. فصلاة الشكر هي فاتورة للرب تدفع له لأنه أطعم المبشرين الاوائل الذين تاهوا وكادوا يهلكون الى أن أرسل لهم الله بعض الهنود الحمر الذين انقذوهم وقدموا لهم أكواز الذرة ..

ورد الاميريكون الجميل لله انهم نحروا له كل الهنود الحمر وقدموهم كالقرابين ثم صلوا له وكتبوا اسم الله على الدولار ..

ولذلك فان العقل الاميريكي مصمم ومبرمج على حقيقة ان الوجود هو مدفوع الثمن ..

حتى عبارة (نحن نثق بالله) المكتوبة على الدولار يعتبرونها صفقة بينهم وبين الله .. هم يضعون اسمه على عملتهم وهو يرزقهم وينصرهم ..

ومن هنا يأتي مشروعهم لما يسمى (صفقة القرن) ..

التي هي ترجمة للعقل الاميريكي عندما تطور من مرحلة الصدام وقتل الهنود الحمر الى مرحلة ترحيل الشعوب الافريقية لملء الفراغ الذي تسبب به قتل شعب اميريكا الاصلي ..

فرغم ان الاميريكي راعي البقر كان قادرا على استعباد الهنود الحمر الاصليين على ارضهم بدل استيراد السود كالعبيد الا انه فضل القضاء على الهنود الحمر والقبائل التي كان يغزوها .. لان استعباد السكان الاصليين لن تكون عملية سهلة على الاطلاق ..

فالانتماء الى الارض لدى اي شعب يجعل استعباده على ارضه عملية غير موفقة وغير مجدية وصعبة للغاية .. وخاصة ان احتمال نيل الحرية كان يعني انه يمكن ان يعيد ذاكرة الأحفاد لاستعادة الأرض بعد الحرية ..

وكان من الافضل القضاء عليهم وابادتهم بدل استعبادهم .. وكان لابد من عملية فصل الانسان عن الارض بشكل قاطع ولاشيء يفصله عنها الا الموت .. حتى وان فرغت الارض من الشعب .. لتصبح أرضا بلا شعب .. ويصبح المهاجرون البيض شعبا بلا ارض (تماما كما اليهود في تعريفات وعد بلفور) ..

ولكن هذا خلق مشكلة وهي ان الارض الشاسعة التي تم افراغها من سكانها كانت تحتاج الى شعب آخر ليعمل فيها ويطلق عملية الانتاج .. فتم شحن عشرات ملايين الزنوج من افريقيا وتوطينهم في مزارع اميريكا بالقوة .. وهذا كان حلا معقولا ..

فهؤلاء لايريدون أرضا مهما تمردوا بل اقصى مايطلبونه هو حريتهم .. حتى وان تحرروا يوما فانهم لاينتمون الى أي أرض وليست لهم فيها أية جذور بعد ان تم قص جذورهم من افريقيا وزرعهم في ارض لاينتمون اليها وليست لهم فيها آثار ولامقابر ملوك ولاتعني لهم الا انها أرض لايملكونها بل يعملون للعيش فيها لدى من يملكها وهو السيد الابيض ..

وعقلية المالك لايملكها العبد وابناؤه واحفاده طالما انه يعرف انه جاء من ارض اخرى .. وهذا هو جوهر صفقة القرن .

. اي تجريد الشعب من الانتماء الى الأرض .. وتجريد الارض من الشعب .. ولكن عبر عملية بيع للانسان الفلسطيني الذي تحول الى سلعة في السوق او شعب مسروق للبيع سعره خمسون مليار دولار ..

صدقوني انه رغم كل مايقال عن صفقة القرن فانني لم اجد في التاريخ كله صفقة أكثر وقاحة منها .. ولم أجد في كل التاريخ الحقيقي والمزور صفقة فيها أكبر عملية استرقاق وعبودية .. فالتعبير الحقيقي الذي يعكس الصفقة هو انها أكبر عملية بيع للبشر في سوق النخاسة ..

وماتفعله اميريكا هو ترجمة للمشاهد الشهيرة التي نعرفها منذ رواية مسلسل الجذور الشهير لعملية بيع البشر .. في تلك العمليات كان الاميريكيون ينقلون البشر بالسفن من افريقيا الى اميريكا .. ويقتلعونهم من أرضهم ويقصون لهم جذورهم .. ويعرضونهم في السوق كالمواشي ..

وما صفقة القرن الا عملية شحن للبشر ونقلهم خارج ارضهم وقص حذورهم .. وكلفة العملية خمسون مليار دولار فقط وتتم عملية النقل اليوم عبر رشوة صغيرة وتافهة ..

وهي تحسين ظروف معيشة العبيد .. بخمسين مليار دولار .. ويتم نقل الفلسطينيين من من حالة شعب مالك لفلسطين الى حالة شعب ثمنه خمسون مليار دولار .. وهو أدنى سعر تم تداوله في بورصة النخاسة البشرية منذ ان وجدت .. وثمن بخس جدا جدا للانسان الذي لم يعد يساوي الا بضعة دولارات .

. وحسب مقاييس اميريكا فان ضحايا طائرة لوكربي تم تقدير ثمنهم باكثر من 3 مليارات دولار ودفع ثمنهم الزعيم القذافي مرغما عندما تركته العواصم العربية وحيدا في المواجهة في قضية لوكربي .. وهذا يعني ان كل الشعب الفلسطيني وكل فلسطين لاتساوي وفق ثمن صفقة القرن الا 16 طائرة لوكربي بركابها البالغ مجموعهم قرابة 4500 انسان .. وكل فلسطين الجغرافية وكل القدس لا تساوي مايعادل 16 طائرة ركاب ..

ماقاله امل دنقل في قصيدة (لاتصالح) هو بالضبط المعادل الجوهري لمفهوم( صفقة القرن)

لاتصالح
..ولو منحوك الذهب
أترى حين أفقأ عينيك
ثم أثبت جوهرتين مكانهما
هل ترى..؟
هي أشياء لا تشترى

انها فضيحة العصر والثمن الأبخس في التاريخ .. فاليهود وهم أثرى الناس على هذا الكوكب هذه الايام لايرون ان كل مال الدنيا يعادل أرضا ووطنا .. ويبحثون عن كل شجرة زيتون وليمون في فلسطين لشرائها ..وكما قالوا للسادات: اعطنا نهر النيل وخذ مقابله زجاجة كوكاكولا .. فقبل .. فانهم اليوم يقولون للفلسطيني:

اعطنا عينيك وخذ جوهرتين مكانهما .. اترك الزيتونة واترك الليمونة .. وخذ أطوموبيل ..
أعطنا الماء وخذ الكأس الفارغ ..
اعطنا نهر الاردن .. وخذ زجاجة كوكا كولا ..
أعطنا كل زيتون فلسطين وخذ علبة ببسي كولا ..

هذه الصفقة هي النتيجة الطبيعية لأسوأ قرار تورط فيه الفلسسطينيون وهو القرار الفلسطيني المستقل الذي أنجب أوسلو .. لأن منح القرار الفلسطيني المستقل خلص الزعماء العرب من اي مسؤولية تجاه فلسطين بحجة ان لفلسطين قرارا مستقلا ..

والقرار الفلسطيني هو السلام الذي يحميه محمود عباس برموش عينيه .. فيما قرر جزء آخر من قيادة الشعب الفلسطيني “اسلمة” القضية وتكليف اردوغان وقطر بتولي رعايتها ..

فيما فلسطين ليست قضية اسلامية ولاعربية بل هي قضية انسانية مثل قضية الحرية والعبودبة والوجود البشري هي قضيه سورية محض وانظرو للشام نعرف لما فعلو ان اشغلوها بعبيدهم ومرتزقتهم ليمررو هذا العار

لذلك من العار ان تنتصر زجاجة البيبسي كولا على بساتين الزيتون .. وأن يهزم نهر الاردن امام هدير وزئير وفوران زجاجة كوكا كولا.. ومن العار ان تساوي طائرة لوكربي واحدة ثلث فلسطين ..

لايوجد أي رد على صفقة الكوكاكولا الا شيء واحد يرد الاعتبار للشعب الفلسطيني .. هو انتفاضة الزيتون .. التي ستقتلع معها أوسلو .. وهذا سيجر معه اقتلاع للقرار الفلسطيني المستقل ..

وتعيد كوشنر والعرب الى حافة عام 1936 .. عندما كانت فلسطين ملكا للجميع .. وحريتها مسؤولية الجميع .. عربا وغير عرب .. مسيحيين ومحمديين.. لأن فلسطين قضية العصر .. ومواجهة العصر .. معركة بين الفناء والبقاء ..

‘NYT’ coverage of Trump peace plan news quotes 5 pro-Israel voices, 0 Palestinians

Media Analysis

 on 

The New York Times covers phase one of the Trump peace plan, an economic “workshop” in Bahrain next month at which the administration is expected to dangle the money it wants to give Palestinians and states neighboring Israel, so that Palestinians will sacrifice their political demands/rights (among them sovereignty on ’67 borders; return of refugees; shared Jerusalem)– a figure said to be $68 billion.

The article quotes No Palestinians. (No Palestinian business person will attend this faked “workshop”)

It does include quotes from Aaron David Miller, Jared Kushner, Robert Satloff, Treasury’s Steve Mnuchin, and Brookings pundit Tamara Cofman Wittes. Five (Jewish) Americans, all five of them strong supporters of Israel. (Mnuchin’s background is here.)

Satloff, Wittes, and Miller are all presented as “critics” of the plan, but they are all Zionist critics of the plan. Just different shades of Zionist.(No, not shade. Stauncher Zionists than most Israelis)

Why? This is racism in journalism before your eyes.

The Times clearly has a structural bias against Palestinians. (As all colonial powers’ administrations in the last century)

Even as it demonstrates its higher consciousness in other left zones, the newspaper is stuck in the old paradigm on Israel.

How else could a newspaper publish four justifications of the killings of nonviolent protesters inside of a few months, as it did last year in Gaza?

This would never happen in any other context when a government opens fire on demonstrators.

But the Times columnists offered those justifications, in Shmuel Rosner’s case almost a bloodthirsty one, and there was no balance, let alone criticism from the Roger Cohens, David Brookses, and Michelle Goldbergs of the world.

Palestinians simply don’t count as full human actors.

The Palestinian Prime Minister released a statement rejecting the economic summit today. He and his cabinet surely were available yesterday. So was Sam Bahour, who writes that Palestine cannot have an economic future without an independent political future, in which construction workers and university graduates will be able to find employment inside a Palestinian state.

Diana Buttu, Saeb Erekat, Hanan Ashrawi (who has been denied a visa to travel to the U.S.), Omar Barghouti, Mustafa Barghouti, Haider Eid surely would have spoken to the Times, too.

Palestine is truly teeming with sophisticated political actors on a wide range who would have something to say about the implausibility of economic peace.

And if the Times says this was an American politics piece, well, there are Palestinians here, too, who have a lot to say. The bottom line here is obvious and disturbing. Palestinians aren’t equals.

Deal of the Century Adds “New” to the Four Thousand Year Old Name “Palestine”

The apartheid regime we know as “Israel” was built on the very ruins of Palestine and imposed a brutal regime on those who still live in their country. Millions of Palestinians still languish in refugee camps in and around Palestine, yet Israel and its allies around the world celebrate “Israeli independence.”

JERUSALEM, PALESTINE — Nakba Day — the day when Palestinians commemorate the destruction of their country and the mass killing and forced eviction of their people — is coming up, and with each passing day, another disturbing story unfolds.

Perhaps the most disturbing story so far is the plan to present Palestine with a new name, “New Palestine.” (How imaginative)

This, according to a rumored leak, is what Donald Trump and Jared Kushner are going to present to an anticipating world as part of the so-called “Deal of the Century.”

Also according to the leak, aside from a demand for Palestinians to accept a new name as part of the “Deal of the Century” — forgoing the name “Palestine,” which has been used to describe their land since the Bronze Age — the Palestinian people will have to accept that their heritage and their history will be erased and their land will be taken away for good.

In other words, what Palestinians are going to receive, according to the leak, is a new name but no country, and they will be expected to accept this or else they will be denied access to foreign aid, not only from the U.S. but other countries as well.

From elections to Gaza to Independence Day

Things move fast on the Israeli side of occupied Palestine.

Israel recently held elections, then — within a few weeks and before a new government was even formed — Israel lashed out with a deadly attack on Gaza.

Then, Israel recognized a few solemn days, the first one Holocaust Remembrance Day and the second, a day to commemorate Israeli soldiers who had fallen in battle. Then Israelis were off to celebrate “Israeli Independence.”

On the Palestinian side, no sooner does one tragedy end than a second one follows, no time for the fresh blood on the ground to dry before more is spilled.

The lovely face of 16-year-old Fatima Hijazi, shot by an Israeli sniper, is still fresh in people’s hearts when more, even younger casualties are reported. Palestinians go from mourning to mourning with no end in sight.

Over the past several years, a new phenomenon has risen, a joint memorial service where Israelis and Palestinians join together to commemorate their fallen loved ones.

While the idea of such an event may seem appealing to some, the moral equivalency it tries to create between the victims of the violence and those who lost their lives while perpetuating the violence is troubling.

However, in the political climate that now exists among Israelis, this is considered progressive. While this event was permitted to proceed, right-wing gangs came by to protest the initiative and lashed out with obscenities at the participants: “Sons of whores, may God take all of you stinking lefties! Death to Arabs!” and on and on.

Celebrating independence

A custom that can only be described as insensitive, if not outright cruel, and which has been in place since Palestine was destroyed, is the celebration of Israeli independence. Just as Israeli elections were held on the day that Palestinians commemorate the massacre at Deir Yassin, Israel callously celebrates a day of independence at the same time as Palestinians mourn the loss of their country.

The apartheid regime we know as “Israel” was built on the very ruins of Palestine and imposed a brutal regime on those who still live in their country. Millions of Palestinians still languish in refugee camps in and around Palestine, yet Israel and its allies around the world celebrate.

Israel Memorial Day

Israelis are not the indigenous people of Palestine. What we know today as “Israelis” are people who came to colonize mostly during the time of the British Mandate in Palestine, and they did so largely with the assistance of the British government.

The British mandate over Palestine, which was, in reality, an occupation of the country, facilitated the creation of the Zionist apartheid regime in Palestine. The Jews who came to colonize and settle in Palestine were never oppressed or occupied; in fact, they were privileged. The Jewish settlements in Palestine had services like running water and electricity long before many of the Palestinian communities did, and they were assisted by the British in every possible way.

The biblical Zionist narrative

The name “New Palestine” becomes even more absurd in light of the fact that the name Palestine was, “first documented in the late Bronze Age, about 3,200 years ago.”

Furthermore, according to a new book by historian Nur Masalha, “the name Palestine is the conventional name used between 450 B.C. and 1948 A.D. to describe the geographical region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.” These quotes are from Masalha’s Palestine, A Four Thousand Year History, published by Zed Books in 2018.

Palestine: A Four Thousand Year HistoryMasalha — professor of history at the London University School of Oriental and African Studies, or SOAS — takes on the difficult task of seriously, scientifically, and one may add successfully, challenging the prevailing narrative regarding Palestine.

This is clearly no simple feat but it is one in which the historian Masalha succeeds in a manner that is both admirable and convincing. (Just peruse the old pictures of Palestinians and Palestine before and after British mandated power)

Unfortunately, odds are neither Jared Kushner or Benjamin Netanyahu — the two men who are most likely to be behind the “New Palestine” and the “Deal of the Century” — will ever read this important history book.

Revealing aspects of Palestinian history that Zionists would prefer remain in the dark, Masalha’s book is essential reading. Until the history of Palestine is told and the cruel reality in which Palestinians live today is exposed, Palestine will never be free.

Tidbits and Notes. Part 271

Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality.

Israel has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law. It has, in particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children.

Israeli snipers shot with live bullets on 16,000 unarmed Palestinians in last year alone. And the UN is shyly and barely saying: Israel committed what verges on crimes against humanity.

I don’t know who sold out to the enemy, but I have seen who paid the price

I don’t mind being buried in the soil, in a dark small patch of soil, but they no longer respect the soil. We are cremated or stuffed in a cement cave: the land is too rare and dear to reserve it for the departed.

Is Death the most compassionate of all realities?

Currently, millions of female fetuses are aborted each year in China and India. Even after birth, Indian baby girls are left to die of famine and negligence.

Minority ethnic groups in China are experiencing State Eugenics Laws since 1995; the Chinese genetic physician has simply to state that the expected baby of the minority parents is found to be physically or mentally handicapped to sterilize the parents; reactions are lukewarm; as they say “it is economics, stupid”.

He said: “Israel political and military leaders frightened the Israeli society far more than they were expected and the the Gulf “Arab/Emirate” States are far more ready to worry about Turkey Sunni expansionism than the avowed nemesis of Iran. Israel is thus cornered and totally confused at all front, particularly in Syria new status and progress

Another year of trying hard to erase Palestine and Palestinians

From Google Maps’ erasure of Palestine, to Israel’s Eurovision win, to the new Jewish-Arab movement that plans to save the Israeli left, here are the most popular articles we published this past year.

By +972 Magazine Staff

25. ‘We’ll ensure it doesn’t escalate to violence — on our end’

It’s hard to believe now, but 2018 began with a glimmer of hope for the residents of the Gaza Strip, as nonviolent activists planned mass demonstrations at the Israel-Gaza fence demanding freedom and the right of return for Palestinian refugees.

Ahmed Abu Artema, one of the organizers of the “Great Return March” spoke at the time to +972’s Rami Younis about why he believed hundreds of thousands of people would show up, and what message he’d like to send to Israelis. Read the interview here.

21. ‘Apartheid is a process’

19. Arabic was an official language in Israel for 70 years, 2 months, and 5 days

Why upend the status quo of the past 70-plus years? Ask the Israeli government.

18. How Google Maps is erasing Palestine

Ever wonder what it’s like for Palestinians to travel between Israeli checkpoints and roadblocks in the West Bank? A new report details the ways Google Maps’ mapping process in the occupied territories serves the interests of the Israeli government, while contradicting the company’s stated commitment to human rights.

15. The color of racism: What many get wrong about race relations in Israel

When an Arab family declared their intention to move into Afula, a mostly Mizrahi middle-class city in northern Israel, the locals responded with racism and hate. Meanwhile, anti-racist activists accused the residents of promoting ‘white supremacy.’ Lihi Yona writes that understanding the ways Jewish supremacy and white supremacy intersect in Israel is the first step toward dismantling them.

14. The new Jewish-Arab movement that plans to save the Israeli left

13. Israeli minister posts video with genocidal chants by fans

At the end of a Facebook video encouraging fair conduct by fans from Beitar Jerusalem, one of Israel’s notoriously racist soccer clubs, those surrounding Miri Regev break out into chants of ‘burn your village,’ directed at the opposing team — from an Arab city in Israel. Read the full story here.

11. How Childish Gambino explains the problem with Israel’s Eurovision win

Childish Gambino shocked the world this year with a new music video for his hit, “This is America,” which focuses on the oppression of African Americans. In the Israeli context, says Amjad Iraqi, the video serves to illustrate why audiences should focus on the injustices unfolding in the background of artistic performances – especially those representing the state. Read the article here.

10. In memory of Razan al-Najjar

The 21-year-old paramedic was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers while trying to aid wounded protesters near the Gaza-Israel separation fence. Many Israelis either refuse to believe she was actually killed or claim that her killing was somehow justified. Click here for more.

9. The untold story of Jewish anti-Zionists in Israel

For nearly as long as Palestinians have resisted their displacement, small groups of Jews have joined them. Ran Greenstein’s book, “Zionism and Its Discontents,” brings to life the complex, often contradictory story of those Israelis who saw Palestinian and Jewish liberation as one and the same. Read Joshua Leifer’s review here.

7. The Palestine movement taught me to confront anti-Semitism

On American university campuses, pro-Palestine activists are routinely smeared as anti-Semites seeking to destroy Israel. But contrary to what pro-Israel activists claim, the BDS movement has been instrumental in challenging anti-Semitism on the left. Click herefor the full article.

6. Nabi Saleh is where I lost my Zionism

By the time +972’s Lisa Goldman began going to Nabi Saleh, she had spent about four years reporting on what she saw in the West Bank and Gaza, watching detachedly as her politics moved ever leftward. What she witnessed in that small West Bank village was the last straw. Read the full article here.

5. The myth of the Gaza ‘border’

What Israel fears more than a Palestinian state is a Palestinian population it cannot disown, and the myth that Gaza is “separated” from Israel helps it balance that fear. That myth must be broken, and that racist fear must be exposed, writes Amjad Iraqi. Read the full article here.

4. Why Israel’s Eurovision contestant became a target for BDS

Netta Barzilai stunned Europeans this past year with a feminist anthem that won the annual Eurovision Song Contest. Despite her undeniable talent, Barzilai is still the official representative of a country that, for more than half a century, has denied millions of people basic rights under a brutal military occupation, writes Orly Noy.

3. Videos show Israeli soldiers sniping unarmed protesters in Gaza

As Gaza’s ‘Great Return March’ turned into a full-fledged popular protest movement, the Israeli army scrambled to explain the growing body count. Infographics were released. Talking points were distributed. Israel was defending its sovereign border, they said. Then came the videos.

2. Denying Palestinians the right to challenge oppression

Attacks against the UK Labour Party for its newly adopted definition of anti-Semitism only contribute to the silencing of Palestinian voices, the potential criminalization of their struggle against Israeli policies, and the negation of their demands for freedom and equality, say two London-based human rights activists.

1. ‘I won’t fly refugees to their deaths’: The El Al pilots resisting deportation

The Israeli government announced late last year that it would begin deporting asylum seekers to third countries, where they would be vulnerable to exploitation, humiliation, human trafficking, frequent arrests, and possible death. Months before the plan was nixed, at least three pilots for Israel’s flag carrier published declarations publicly refusing to take part in the forced deportations.

What are your Invariable positions in politics?

What topics should be ripe for community-wide discussions?

Invariable positions in politics should be reduced to the bare minimum: all issues (economics, finance, trade, social equity, election laws…) need to be ripe for community-wide discussions and referendum.

Invariable positions that constitute the ideological structure must Not include abstract concepts like Freedom, Liberty, Democracy, Equality… any concept that are basically biased and controlled by the elite classes.

Many political systems, regardless of who is in power, have built-in invariable guidelines: Mostly to be in perpetual wars in order to support weapons industrial complexes such as the USA and Israel.

I won’t dwell on empires in the antiquity, since history is a fabricated stories of the victors and we lack enough documents to sustain any proclamation.

It would be great to study the history of current colonial powers for their invariable positions in geopolitics: mostly the USA, France, England, and Germany.

The other colonial powers that have been reduced to third class empires after WWII such as Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan…need Not be considered but as a replica in racist and apartheid behaviors toward the foreign occupied people.

Perpetual wars, wars of expansion and pre-emptive wars is the Invariable in USA history and Israel

States that were defeated both by the sword and the spirit are No longer viable States. Such as Libya and Somalia

Colonial powers such as USA, France and England persist on fomenting religious civil wars to take control of the people and their wealth

The Rothschild family, with accumulated $300 trillions, still plan and execute civil wars (through colonial governments) in militarily weaker countries to reap the spoil of what is left in public properties.

In Middle-East politics, I have two invariable positions, based on daily confirmation for many decades:

1) Israel is our Existential enemy, and

2) Greater Syria forms one Nation with One people (current Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan and Iraq)

In a nutshell, All the colonial powers (USA, France, England and Germany) were white supremacists and had to create Israel to get rid of them. They used these poorer classes of “European” supremacist Jews as mercenaries to control and loot the Middle-East of their oil.

The Christian Evangelical sects support for the Return of the Jews to Palestine was a total cover up to encourage the poor Jews to immigrate for new lands.

Story of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Sami, the bedouin

One can’t understand the Palestinian/Zionist conflict (an existential case of an implanted colonial State in our midst) without bringing the whole geopolitical context that happened for a century (and even beyond that) before the actual ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948,(or the creation of this colonial implanted State in the Near-East):

First, Palestine was inhabited by the native Palestinians (regardless of their religion) for Thousands of years before the zionist thought to build their “jewish state” in Palestine.

In the late 19th century, and due to the European persecution of the European jews, the European zionist “jews” started a European national political movement (The Arab jews were absent) calling for finding a separate homeland for the Jews. (An emulation of the colonial mentality to occupy lands and people and exercise their racist ideology)

They were given numerous proposals by the European governments, Argentina in South America, Uganda in Africa, and Palestine in the Arab world.

For Herzl, that was a sober, rational idea. No God involved, no holy scriptures, no romantic nonsense. Palestine did not enter his mind. Nor had he any interest in the religious fantasies of “Evangelical” Christian Zionists in Britain and the US, like Alfred Balfour.
“I can tell you everything about the ‘promised Land’ except its location”

Now, because that the jewish religion has ancient ties to Palestine they chose Palestine as a “homeland” to be established for the jews. (It was the suggestion and pressure of the colonial powers to divide the people in the Middle-East and prevent them from daily trade and communication)

The jews, just like any other nation that invaded Palestine, have never ever been the natives of Palestine but invaders:

1. Before the old jewish invasion of Palestine, the area was inhabited for thousands of years by the native Canaanites, Jebusites, plesheth in the south, and the Phoneticians in the north that BEFORE any jew imagined to create a “god” to promise him Palestine (actually, the Jews were, as many poorer classes in that land, who fled to higher plateau and the desert regions, away from the urban centers).

2. The old jews were Outside Palestine, a bunch of nomads roaming the Middle East, until they created their own “god” and made Him promise them a land that originally is not theirs (Jehova was their warrior God, and the Canaanites in Jerusalem built them a tiny temple so that they can be recruited in the wars as mercenaries) .

3. The old jews occupied and ruled parts of (but never all of) Palestine for only 77 years and they toppled the original Jebusite temple and built theirs on its rubble, before they were driven out by the Roman invaders.

4. The old jews were invaders and simply were kicked out very soon compared to the Muslim occupiers of Spain who occupied Spain for over 600 years… So, the Muslims have zero right in Spain just the same like both the old and modern jews had and have zero right in Palestine… unless you want to believe in their Talmudic heresies of the “promised land” which anybody can claim a land property anywhere lying at his invented “god”.

spain

……………………

After the European zionist jews decided to colonize Palestine in the modern time aided and encouraged by the European colonization powers who (just like God in the old ages) promised them Palestine by the British “God” Arthur Balfour.

So, in the old ages, the jews invented their “god” to promise them Palestine and nowadays they found the British “god” to promise them Palestine again !!

Soon after modern European jews had decided to colonize Palestine in their First conference held in Basle, Switzerland (1899), they created the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in order to start buying land properties in Palestine to pave the way for establishing the “jewish state”,

But this project didn’t work well for them (despite the huge capital the JNF collected worldwide for that purpose) as the Palestinians not only didn’t sell their land but fought against that policy.

And in 1947, (despite the British facilitation of the jewish activities in Palestine) the JNF couldn’t  buy more than 5.8% from Palestine (a place less than Te-Aviv city now).

(Actually, it were the Lebanese landlords in north Palestine who sold their lands and towns in order to create a political status in Lebanon, because they already considered Palestine a lost case for their investment)

Seeing that their (buy and sell) project wouldn’t work, The zionist colonizers needed and did an extreme violent path that can be summarized in two things as Ilan Pappe illustrates:

Palestinian Nakba

1. A detailed information about the local Palestinian inhabitants which (the JNF was asked to compile)

…. the JNF Arab village a inventory that was a blueprint completed by the late 1930s that included the topographic location of each village with detailed information including husbandry, cultivated land, number of trees, quality of fruit, average amount of land per family, number of cars, shop owners, Palestinian clans and their political affiliation, descriptions of village mosques and names of their imams, civil servants and more. The final inventory update was finished in 1947 with lists of “wanted” persons in each village targeted in 1948 for search-and-arrest operations with those seized summarily shot on the spot in cold blood.

2. to create several terrorist gang groups like LehiIrgun and Sternwhich started operating as early as 1920s by assassinating the Palestinians that posed an obstacle to the zionist colonization project.

Ben Gorion
11 years before the actual ethnic cleansing

Now, having done so .. the zionist needed a systematic plan for the actual ethnic cleansing which started way before 1948:

President Franklin D. Roosevelt (enough time before the actual cleansing of Palestine) put it in December 1942 , “I actually would put a barbed wire around Palestine, and I would begin to move the Arabs out of Palestine…. Each time we move out an Arab we would bring in another Jewish family…” And this was exactly what happened with planned massacres !!

The plan was set:

“Red House” in Tel-Aviv that became headquarters for the Hagana, the dominant Zionist underground paramilitary militia during the British Mandate period in Palestine between 1920 and 1948 when the Jewish state came into being. He details how David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, met with leading Zionists and young Jewish military officers on March 10, 1948 to finalize plans to ethnically cleanse Palestine that unfolded in the months that followed including “large-scale (deadly serious)intimidation; laying siege to and bombarding villages and population centres; setting fire to homes, properties and goods; expulsion; demolition; and finally, planting mines among the rubble to prevent any of the expelled inhabitants from returning.”

Nakba 2

During the ethnic cleansing of the native Palestinians some 70 documented massacres ( Israeli Massacres on Palestinians ) were perpetrated by the Zionist terrorist groups in a systematic way to terrorize the natives out of their homes and villages:

Once the ethnic cleansing begun, the whole ugly business took six months to complete. It expelled about 800,000 people, killed many others, and destroyed 531 villages and 11 urban neighborhoods in cities like Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem. The action was a clear case of ethnic cleansing that international law today calls a crime against humanity for which convicted Nazis at Nuremberg were hanged. So far Israelis have always remained immune from international law even though names of guilty leaders and those charged with implementing their orders are known as well as the crimes they committed.

………………………………..

It should be noticed that:

1. Ethnically cleansing Palestine and creating “israel” is a European colonization project that was done by European jews. There has never been hatred or enmity between the Arabs-Muslims and the jews over history and it should be noticed that the jews had their ONLY jewish Golden Age under the Muslim rule and run out of Spain along with the Arabs fearing the European pogrom. In addition, in the modern history, while the jews were persecuted and massacred throughout Europe, they had a safe haven among the Arabs and in the Muslim countries.

2. The Arabs and Muslims didn’t kick the jews out of their homes from the Arab countries but it was the European zionist jews who had done the dirty job and MOST of the jews in the Arab-Muslim countries didnt migrate willingly to occupy Palestine but AFTER the creation of the zionist “jewish state” …. I would cite here exactly what my jewish Iraqi brother wrote after discovering the criminal zionist techniques:

” I write this article for the same reason I wrote my book: to tell the American people, and especially American Jews, that Jews from Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that, to force them to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace initiatives from their Arab neighbors. I write about what the first prime minister of Israel called “cruel Zionism.” I write about it because I was part of it.”

3. You should know the fact that the zionist settlers systematically and deliberately ethnically cleansed Palestine from its natives both Muslims and Christians as they expelled over 750,000 Palestinians among them over 100,000 Christians and razed 540 native villages among them over 80 ancient Christian villages along with their ancient churches that stood since Jesus, for the zionists to come and invent their “jewish state”

Baram

So … the whole fight is NOT between the “the Arabs-Muslims and the jews” as the zionist lie again, it is between European zionist occupiers (who ethnically cleansed the native Palestinians in the name of Judaism) and the natives of Palestine (both Muslims and Christians) who unjustifiably were massacred out of their homes and their villages were erased.
