Facts and Fiction

Today is the 60th anniversary of the UN vote for the Jews to gain a state in Israel. On November 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly approved, 33 to 13, Resolution 181, a partition plan that would have created two states, one Jewish and the other Arab, in what was then the British-controlled Palestine Mandate. According to the resolution, Jerusalem was to be a separate, international city, under UN jurisdiction. The November 29 decision was also a rare instance of the Soviet Union and the United States voting on the same side of a major foreign policy issue, which allowed their satellite nations to vote in favor of partition as well.

The Jews, even after the final state that they were to be given was much less than than originally promised them by the League of Nations and the Balfour Declaration since Jordan had been given to the Arabs and a second Arab state was supposed to be created on the western bank of the Jordan, danced in celebration. The Arabs, however, in typical fashion, marched out of the UN in a huff and prepared for war. The Jews were promised by the UN a greatly reduced state that had 40% of its population Arabs but nonetheless they rejoiced. The Arabs, of course, went to war. Having defeated over a million Arab troops determined to massacre the Jews, Israel's borders were increased and hundreds of thousands of Arabs fled, reducing their percentage of the population.

After Israel's War of Independece, Jordan conquered Judea and Samaria and Egypt conquered the Gaza Strip. Neither nation offered to create a "Palestinian" state (the "Palestinians" didn't even exist before '67) on these lands, even banning "Palestinian" national groups. Not that the Arabs really protested- the need for a "Palestinian" state only came after the Jews liberated the area in 1967 after defeating the Arab onslaught during the Sinx Day War.

Now, Zionist readers, arm yourselves with facts and go out and challenge the army of rabid anti-semitic lies. The Jews did not steal "Palestine" from anybody. Would you like to know the origin of the word "Palestine"? The term "Palestine" came from the name that the conquering Roman Empire gave the ancient Land of Israel in an attempt to obliterate and de-legitimize the Jewish presence in the Holy Land. The name "Palestine" was invented in the year 135 C.E. Before it was known as Judea, which was the southern kingdom of ancient Israel. The Roman Procurator was enraged at how the Jews refused to accept Roman rule and insisted on revolting, clinging desperately to their land. In a bid to dejudaize Israel, the Procurator named the land for Israel's biblical enemies, the Philistines. Thus, the Procurator declared that Land of Israel would from then forward be called "Philistia" [further bastardized into "Palaistina"] to dishonor the Jews and obliterate their history. Hence the name "Palestine." "Palestine" is only an attempt to erase the Jewish connection to Israel.

In honour of the 60th anniversary of the UN resolution and the holiday of Hannukah when the Jews rose up and cleansed the land of Hellenistic influences, Jews are preparing to build 3 more outposts in Judea and Samaria. Land of Israel activists in Judea and Samaria said Thursday that they planned to establish three new Jewish communities in the region during Chanukah. In addition, activists plan to return to five communities that were originally built this past Sukkot but which police have repeatedly torn down. The activists said they will build the new communities on the fifth day of Chanukah, Sunday, December 9. One will be located near Beit El, and will be called Givat HaOr, “The Hill of Light.” The second new community, Maoz Ester (“Ester’s Fortress”), will be built near Kochav Yaakov just north of the capital and a third town will be built near the Jerusalem suburb of Maaleh Adumim.
