A new state?

It looks like the United Nations is going to declare a new state. You may ask yourselves "Where?" and you would be right in asking that. They are going to declare a new state on a land that does not belong to them nor has it ever belonged to them. It is like me declaring a room in your house as my home. Did I buy that room? No. But for the United Nations, that does not matter. This state is supposedly called Palestine.

Now what is this invented people? What are the characteristics of the invented people? Do they have their own language? Do they have art? Do they have authors? Do they have culture? Do they have history? Have they ever had a land? Well the answer is simple to all of those questions - a resounding No.

Let us look at the name they have supposedly taken for themselves, Palestine. Forget the fact that there is no P in Arabic so that in their eyes it is Falestine, let us simply look at the name. The word itself derives from the Hebrew word Peleshet, usually translated as Philistia in English. The word referred to the Philistine's invasion of Israel from the sea. The Philistines were not Arabs nor even Semites nor did they speak Arabic. They had no connection, ethnic, linguistic or historical with Arabia or Arabs. They were simply the enemies of the Israelites. When the Romans invaded the area of Judah, which some of you now call, a part of the West Bank, they renamed the area Palaestina as an affront to the Jews living there. The word and name Palestine refers to Israel and it always has. The area of Judea was renamed Palaestina in an attempt to minimize Jewish identification with the land of Israel. Wait a minute, that is exactly what the Arabs, UNESCO and the UN have been trying to do for forty years.

The use of the term "Palestinian" for an Arab ethnic group is a modern political creation which has no basis in fact - and had never had any international or academic credibility before 1967.

So where dis the present day invented nation come from? Well according to Hamas, they came from Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Syria. This is quite accurate as most came during the First World War to better their lives. Many of the homes they live in were taken from Jews after they massacred entire families. The so-called Arab-city of Hebron was not an Arab city until the massacre of 1929.

When the British invaded Israel in 1917 and were given the area to mandate in the San Remo conference, they issued stamps called pictorials. To stop any conflict with the Arab migrants, they wanted to issue stamps depicting items holy to all religions. Of course they battled to find remnants of Arab history apart from the Dome of the Rock and a mosque in Tiberias, but that is not the issue. The issue is that Rachel's Tomb, a tomb that was in Jewish hands for thousands of years, yes thousands, was designated as Jewish. 80 years later, UNESCO designated it as a mosque. How? The continued destruction of Judaism by the UN. The world could not wipe out the Jews in 2000 years of anti-Antisemitism, nor a Holocaust, but they are trying to wipe out Judaism instead.

Will this invented nation be granted its desires? Abba Eban once said, "If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions."

Before I go, have you ever thought why the Kurds do not have a state of their own yet? Are they not far more deserving?
