Oppose a Palestine State

In case you are not aware. President Barack Hussein Obama has joined the “give the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians a sovereign nation” crowd. This crowd spreads across the Democrat-Republican political spectrum. Most Democrats believe the poor Arabs put in refugee camps because of a multitude of Arab invasions into Israel suffer because Israeli occupation. How can a nation occupy land that was theirs in the first place?

The Republicans in the pro-Two-State solution believe a sovereign Palestinian State will be the beginning of the end of American hatred in the Middle East.

Both these Democrats and Republicans are nuts.

I am a Bible kind-of-guy and as such I see even more land that is not modern Israel’s indeed should be. But let’s go into the secular realm.

After the Ottoman Turks lost WWI the British and the French took possession of the Ottoman Middle East. The League of Nations placed the imprimatur of protection of the Arab Middle East which was divided arbitrarily into British and French spheres of influence called Mandates. The Palestine Mandate was carved out and there was a lot of lobbying to create a homeland for Jews to return to their ancestral homeland: hence the Balfour Declaration toward that end.

Jews had lived in the Levant even under Ottoman rule. After the Balfour Declaration, European Jews began slowly to immigrate to the Palestine Mandate. In the early 1900’s the Arabs that lived in the area could care less about Jewish immigration. The land was considered economically useless.

Jewish ingenuity sparked from Western learning devised ways to make agriculturally usable and economically productive. Even at this early point the Arabs were somewhat happy about the Jewish productivity for it provided employment for Arabs. Indeed the economic boom that came to the former Ottoman holdings enticed Arabs in the Middle East to immigrate to the area for better paying jobs.

Eventually the Arabs that had been under the Ottoman Turk thumb for so many generations began to resent foreign management by Britain and France. The Arabs did not foresee merely switching overlords from Ottoman Turks to the British and the French. Naturally this disgruntlement began to lead to a sense of nationalism. There has always been a Pan-Arab dream of the old glory days; however the Arab Middle East had been carved up according League of Nations (i.e. European) colonialism. There was not one unifying figure for a Pan-Arab nation and I am certain the British and the French would not view such an expansive single State to their national interest. Thus the Arab nationalism fell to tribal or clan families to assert dominance in the European arbitrary borders drawn up for the Arab Middle East.

Naturally the Arabs of the Palestine Mandate became nationalistic as well. This nationalism began to lead toward a dislike of the growing Jewish presence in the Jewish ancestral homeland. This Arab nationalism influenced the British to change their mind a bit on the existence of a Jewish homeland in the face of hostile Arab nationalism.

Indeed the Arab nationalism in the Palestine Mandate began to be belligerent when fellows like the Egyptian born Grand Mufti of Jerusalem began sowing Jew hatred into the Palestine Mandate Arabs.

Unfortunately for the racist Islamic Supremacist Grand Mufti al Husseini, the Jews were a large enough part of the Palestine Mandate population to not be intimidated by hate-speech and anti-Semitism that Jews had been acquainted with for thousands of years anyway.

The more hostile the al-Husseini Muslim-Arabs were to the Jews, the more the Jews pushed back against the Arabs.

The British began to realize they were in an untenable situation that no matter what the Brits did, neither Jewish nor Arab would be a happy camper.

The British solution: Figure out a way to get out of dodge.

The British problem: The Palestine Mandate was an international Trust the British had accepted for capitalistic reasons but were stuck for the responsibility when internecine nationalism became unprofitable for the British National Interests.

About the time the British would have laid this problem on to the International Body of the League of Nations, the League became irrelevant with the growing militarism of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan.

The British were stuck with administering the British Mandate as WWII overtook them.

Re-enter Grand Mufti al-Husseini who conspired with his Jew-hating favorite kafir Adolf Hitler to exterminate Jews in the British Mandate Palestine.

With American help the British defeated Nazi Germany and thus ended al-Husseini’s dream of Nazi aid to exterminate the Jews. The British were exhausted from two world wars in the same century. If they wanted to ditch the Palestine Mandate prior to WWII, it was a must from war weariness to do so now.

Enter another International Body from the ashes of WWII – the United Nations.

The U.N. devised a Two-State plan that would divide the Palestine Mandate into a Jewish and Arab nation. Transjordan was to be the Arab division and I am guessing the name Palestine was thought to be the name of the Jewish division. The thing is the Jews were going to be somewhat short changed in land with this new division that would make Jerusalem an international city belonging to neither Israel nor the Arabs.

The time came and the British finally said, “We’re outta here.”

The relatively new Arab sovereign nations had warned that when the British left they intended to retake all of Palestine for the Arabs.

The Jews who had been developing a military infrastructure with illegal militias that participated in a tit-for-tat terrorist activity with the Arabs were able to toss enough rivalry to form a united force when Israel declared the name of their nation to Israel in 1948.

Five invading Arab armies and Arab participants from the former Palestine Mandate made their move to drive Israel into the sea. Arabs in the new Israel began to leave out of fear of war between Jews and Arabs. There was even a call to get out so the Arab armies could have their usual version of Muslim bloodlust that followed classical Muslim invaders. Also there was a bit of fear of reprisal from Jews if Arab citizen were caught in the cross fire between Jewish and Arab armies.

These fleeing Arabs became the foundation of the Arab refugees who at first were stranded in land under the authority of Arab Jordan (formerly Transjordan) – West Bank - and Egypt - Gaza.

The invading Armies refused to take in the refugees they caused to exist. Indeed they had a motive for establishing refugee camps and labeling the inhabitants Palestinians. That motive was to have a perpetual excuse to invade Israel when Arabs viewed themselves strong enough to terminate the little sliver of land known as Israel.

With the aid of Jew-hating secularist Arabs and an emerging radical Islam, those Arab refugees were inundated with hate propaganda toward Jews to the point that jihad style martyrdom (i.e. homicidal suicide) became a point of honor for the individual and a source of pride to the martyr’s family.

And now President Barack Hussein Obama, American politicians and State Department employees, European nations and Arab nations that can’t stand to have even a sliver of a dar al-harb in their midst; are demanding a sovereign State of Palestine who do not recognize the right of a Jewish State to exist.

Does that make any sense?

Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR is drumming up support to oppose the insanity of creating a Palestinian State.

News & Analysis
May 31, 2009

According to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) world fact book, the State of Israel occupies a total of 20,770 square kilometers which includes 440 sq km of water. To put this in perspective, the entire country of Israel is smaller than the US state of New Jersey.

The total population of Israel is listed as 7,233,701; this includes non-Jewish Arabs whom are Israeli citizens. Israel is 76.4% Jewish with a minority of Muslims (16%), Arab Christians (1.7%) with “other Christians”, Druze, and unspecified making up the remaining religious groupings.

The government of Israel is a parliamentary democracy with a number of factions making up the Knesset, which includes members who are not only anti-Israel, but anti-Semitic as well.

In short, Israel, excepting its parliamentary form of government, is somewhat a microcosm of the United States; a multi-religious society with a participatory government that includes those dedicated to its destruction from within.

The US president is expected to present a “Peace Speech” in Egypt on June 4. President Obama is expected to announce his support for a “settlement of the Jewish question” by calling on Israel to accept the two state “solution” that will make it impossible for Israel to effectively defend itself. To be blunt, Israel is being asked to commit national suicide first by division into indefensible borders and secondly by massive immigration that will destroy the country from within.

Israel, a country occupying a fraction of the Middle East; a country re-born following the Holocaust; a country that makes a home even for those dedicated to its destruction; is being demanded of by the rest of the world to commit national suicide by dividing itself into two; one side that is expected to live with a false promise of peace and the other that is totally dedicated to destroying the other by any means necessary. Israel must win every war; her numerous enemies only one.

We shall not have peace by any division of Israel; nor will we “solve the Jewish question” by partnering with countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, or any other Muslim-majority country in the Middle East. History has proven, time and time again, that political agreements with Muslim-majority countries are not worth the paper they are printed on and that all “agreements” are viewed by Muslim-majority governments as concessions to their religious ideology.

Let us ask the Saudi’s, the Syrians, and the rest of the Muslim world why they accept the presence of refugee camps housing multi-generations of Palestinians; why they refuse to take these refugee’s or provide them any meaningful assistance? Are not the Palestinians their Muslim brothers and sisters? Why do these Muslim countries turn their back on their brethren and demand of the Jews to destroy their country to accommodate those who have absolutely NO RIGHT to Israel?

The next time someone says “Why, Jew?” when the question of Israel arises, turn your back on him. For an American to pose such a question; given our own history with tyranny at our founding; clearly demonstrates a lack of appreciation for our own freedoms, it would be impossible for such a person to understand other people’s right to the same.

President Obama may get his wish for what could lead to the destruction of Israel; but this would only show the world, again, that the United States stands for what is expedient, not for what is right. How many of our allies will continue to trust us if we turn our backs on Israel?

As for me, I stand for a united Israel…from the river to the sea.

Please read the following for a way to let the White House know how you feel about the presidents “peace” trip to Cairo.

The Unity Coalition for Israel offers you the opportunity to reply to President Obama in opposition to US policy in respect to the establishment of a new Palestinian State within Israeli borders, commonly referred to as "the Two State Solution." Your letter also will request that our President demand that the Palestinian Authority and the Arab League recognize Israel as a Jewish State.

The main feature of this Urgent Action Alert is a summary of Israel’s right to the land, found in the United States Congressional Record, dated June 30, 1922, and adopted unanimously by the House of Representatives. It succinctly and beautifully states the compelling reasons for a national home for the Jewish people presented as House Resolution 360. It outlines the geographical boundaries as well as the pragmatic and legal imperative for the State of Israel.

You will be asking that President Obama include in his thinking the opinions of those legislators who played an important role in founding the nation of Israel.

With one click, you can send your letter automatically (as shown below) or change the introduction in any way you wish. Simply add your own comments. Unchanged, your letter will be sent as follows and will go to President Barack Obama with copies to the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, the President’s Cabinet, and to select Members of Congress and the Knesset.

Please click on this link to send your letter:

Your letter will read as follows:

Dear President Obama,

Before putting together the final touches on your anticipated “Peace Speech” expected to be delivered in Egypt on June 4, 2009, I request of you a moment or two, to read what your fellow legislators had to say in the year 1922.

The issue at the time was in respect to the recreation of the Jewish National Home - in the area designated for them by the “Mandate for Palestine," an historical League of Nations document referencing the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law.

Mr. President, there has always been a Jewish presence in the land and reducing any land already granted to the Jewish people under international law is an injustice and a grievous handicap to the well-being of the Jewish State.

The Congressional Resolution follows:

The United States Congressional Record
National Home for

“Palestine of today, the land we now know as Palestine, was peopled by the Jews from the dawn of history until the Roman era. It is the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people. They were driven from it by force by the relentless Roman military machine and for centuries prevented from returning. At different periods various alien people succeeded them but the Jewish race had left an indelible impress upon the land.

“Today it is a Jewish country. Every name, every landmark, every monument and every trace of whatever civilization remaining there is still Jewish. And it has ever since remained a hope, a longing, as expressed in their prayers for these nearly 2,000 years. No other people has ever claimed Palestine as their national home. No other people has ever shown an aptitude or indicated a genuine desire to make it their homeland. The land has been ruled by foreigners. Only since the beginning of the modern Zionist effort may it be said that a creative, cultural, and economic force has entered Palestine. The Jewish Nation was forced from its natural home. It did not go because it wanted to.

“A perusal of Jewish history, a reading of Josephus, will convince the most skeptical that the grandest fight that was ever put up against an enemy was put up by the Jew. He never thought of leaving Palestine. But he was driven out. But did he, when driven out, give up his hope of getting back? Jewish history and Jewish literature give the answer to the question. The Jew even has a fast day devoted to the day of destruction of the Jewish homeland.

“Never throughout history did they give up hope of returning there. I am told that 90 per cent of the Jews today are praying for the return of the Jewish people to its own home. The best minds among them believe in the necessity of reestablishing their Jewish land. To my mind there is something prophetic in the fact that during the ages no other nation has taken over Palestine and held it in the sense of a homeland; and there is something providential in the fact that for 1,800 years it has remained in desolation as if waiting for the return of the people."


For Israel to make further land concessions for any reason is contrary to the original sentiments of the US Congress. Legally, the State of Israel is mandated and exists. We hope you will acknowledge this affirmation of Israel. We also hope that you will insist that the Palestinian Authority and the Arab League abide by this unanimous judgment of our forefathers recognizing Israel as a Jewish State, beginning with your forthcoming speech in Egypt on June 4th, and continuing throughout future policy statements.
