Is The Claim For A Palestinian State A Political Confidence Trick?

Establishing The Facts

Exposing the facts should assist in your assessment.

If I may précis, the narrative continuously expressed over the last 50 years goes something along the following lines.

Since Israel’s independence 700.000 Palestinians were forcibly removed from their homes which they had inhabited since time immemorial.

The Palestinian refugees now number some 7 million and there is overwhelming International demand for an independent Palestinian State.

By the way, it would break all human reproductive records if indeed the population of indigenous Palestinians multiplied by a power of ten in 70 years!!!

The population of New York would be 95 million if New Yorkers reproduced at the rate of Palestinians!!!

That’s the narrative which is generally accepted by millions globally but let’s segregate the myths and this readership agrees with or is at least sympathetic to this essay, please, please let’s circulate widely.

Testing Palestinian Claims – Wars

The fraudulent claims of the Palestinian base case can easily be exposed by asking 2 very simple questions to those supporting the Palestinian cause.

I often ask this in debates and NEVER receive an answer.

These questions should be asked by all of Israel’s supporters to all of Israel’s opponents.

If the ‘ Palestinians ‘ are indigenous to the area, then what wars or battles were waged by Palestinians against various historical invaders from 3000 BC to 1948.

If such battles or wars occurred, who were the Palestinian leaders during these skirmishes?

During all my years of debating and pro Israel activism, I have never – I repeat never – received an answer to these very simple questions.

And just stop and think about it for a moment given the numerous invasions from various foreign armies – Greeks, Romans , Babylonians, Umayyads, Mamelukes, Mongols, Kurds, Crusaders, Byzantines and Ottomans.

Where was the Palestinian challenge?

From my research it never existed but let my ( our ) opponents prove me wrong.

And let’s be sensible about this as many opponents attempt to discredit me by naming various Arab families who lived around the area though to my research never identifying themselves as Palestinians.

The family name will in each case identify the area from which they originally came and I assure you such families would have certainly come from surrounding countries.

Testing Palestinian Claims – Religious

Now if there is no historical claim to a Palestinian State is there a Religious claim?

Again the narrative now is that Islam is attached to Jerusalem.

This also can be easily disproved, although another unpleasant aspect to a Palestinian State is why should a Palestine be Islamic – why not multi religious or cultural?

Let’s leave this 2nd aspect aside and concentrate on the mythical , Islamic, religious claims.

NEITHER JERUSALEM NOR PALESTINE are ever mentioned in the Qu’ran BUT in many Suras the Promised Land is bequeathed to the Jews / Children of Israel (17.104 and 5.20/21).

Any Muslim defying this is in actuality mocking the Qu’ran.

Again when I use this in debate, Israel’s opponents have no answer and I assure you without wishing to bore you I have other Qu’ranic Suras to further validate the Jewish claims to Jerusalem.

The claim that the ascension to heaven by Mohammed from the Furthest Mosque (supposedly the Al Aqsa Mosque) is historical myth as this Mosque was not constructed until 715 and Mohammed died in 636 AD!!

Testing Palestinian Claims – Legal

Now we can further debunk the Palestinian legal claims.

The facts are very simple in that the

ALL validate that Israel’s legal borders should also include the West Bank.

Moreover the International Legal Principles of Estoppel and Acquired Rights further support such expanded boundaries.

So in a few paragraphs we have debunked the Historical, Religious and Legal claims to an independent Palestinian State to include the West Bank or Judea and Samaria.

And given the turmoil within Islamic Nations, Yemen, Syria , Libya, Afghanistan, etc. does the world really want another Islamic country at the U.N. – a country that still maintains a manifesto of destroying Israel and exterminating Jews?!!

As Joseph Farah , the Arab history author scribed in ‘Myths of the Middle East’…

There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians ( another recent invention), Syrians, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs contribute 99.9 per cent of Middle East lands. Israel represents one tenth of one per cent of the landmass. But that’s too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.

The Palestinian Charters – Fatal Exercises in Theocracy (9/28/2022) - The Palestinian populations based in Gaza and Judea and Samaria are represented by 2 organizations, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority - and the leadership of both is constructed of antisemites, holocaust deniers, terrorists, and admirers of Hitler. Both detest each other and have killed more of Palestinians between them in internal disputes than Israel has killed in the protection of its citizens from Palestinian terrorist attacks (archive https://archive.ph/Y4tYx)
Brainy But Cowardly (BBC) Misses the Boat Again (8/17/2022) - When any person - or organization - forsakes principles for favoritism, they have lost all focus on character, Liberty, and justice.

In Spite of President Higgins, the Hope of Ireland Is In Its Grassroots Campaign (8/8/2022) - Whist Ireland's President Higgins waffled on at length about the least fortunate in global society and how Ireland was playing its part to assist those disenfranchised, like the political coward he is, he never alluded to Ireland's behaviour which has been the cause of much human misery. The Republic of Ireland has for decades hidden its dark past about domestic child abuse within State and quasi-Irish State institutions. The Church, church schools, orphanages, hospitals, work-houses, and even the Irish Boy Scouts organisations have a history of incest and grotesque child sexual abuse by those in authority.
The Palestinian Victim Card is Not Only Old, It Is Islamophobic (7/31/2022) - Historical evidence and Qur'anic teachings show that the land of Israel is promised to the Jewish people. As such, any support for the recent Palestinian claims to any part of the disputed geographical area - including Jerusalem - is Islamophobic.
Straight from the Qur’an – Islam Must Honor Israel (7/16/2022) - There are numerous Suras within the Quran that validate beyond any doubt whatsoever, in explicit detail no less, that the State of Israel is promised, bestowed, entrusted with sovereignty, and bequeathed to the Jewish People by Allah Himself.

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.

King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including

  • Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
  • members of the financial elite of Nebraska

It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
