Obviously, the Arab nations rejected the proposed division of Palestine into two states as mandated by Resolution 181, holding to the position that all of Palestine belonged to the Arabs. Let me remind you again that at that time, and by God's Design, the Jews were in fact the minority in what had formerly been their nation during Old Testament times. From this perspective, the Arab Palestinians had some legitimate claims. As a result, immediately following the Zionist Jews' unilateral declaration of independence on May 14, 1948, the Arabs declared war on the newly-formed State of Israel; and the very next day, the armies of Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq attacked the fledgling nation of Israel. Thus began the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. As a result of a ceasefire which was declared a year later, the Green Line was established.
As I have explained to my readers before, in my view, the 1948 Arab-Israeli War was a major mistake on the part of the Arabs; because what the Palestinians are trying to achieve right now via the United Nations, they could have had over sixty years ago. In fact, if you look at the 1948 United Nations partition map, you will quickly determine that the Palestinians could have retained even more back then. Not only that, but in the year 2000, Palestinian Liberation Organization chairman Yasser Arafat walked away from the Camp David Summit, in which Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak offered the Palestinians just about everything that they wanted. As a result, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has continued needlessly for an additional eleven years.
Another interesting point is this: According to the United Nations, as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, more than 700,000 Palestinians were either expelled by the Jews, or else were forced to flee the area that became the State of Israel. It is upon this by-product of the Arab-Israeli War that the Palestinians now base their claim of the "Right of Return". As you may already know, the Israelis are adamant in stating that they will never honor the Right of Return. Along with establishing permanent borders, and the future of Jerusalem, the Right of Return is one of the major obstacles for achieving a lasting peace between the two feuding parties.
If we can be honest with ourselves, what really occurred back in 1948 and thereafter was a type of ethnic cleansing. As I have explained before, the Europeans wanted the Jews out of Europe; because as they always seem to do, the Jews wanted to be in control through the power of the purse. In fact, by that time, the Jews -- in particular, the German Jews -- were already in financial control of most of the European continent. If you are not aware of these historic events, then I encourage you to undertake a study of the secretive Rothschild family, beginning with Mayer Amschel Rothschild and his five sons. You will discover that after having extended their financial power throughout Europe, these extremely wealthy German Jews advanced to other parts of the world, including to the United States of America, which today remains one of their financial strongholds.
As I said, one of the motivating factors which contributed to the United Nations Partition Plan For Palestine in 1947, was the spreading financial power and pervasive influence of the descendants of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, as well as that of other powerful Jewish families in Europe. In other words, there was a desire on the part of some to contain the Jews in their own homeland. In all fairness, it should be mentioned here that some of the Rothschilds have been fervent Zionists who have supported and financed Israel while others have not. In fact, some Rothschilds have preferred to remain at arm's length from politicians, even from their Israeli countrymen.
It has been assumed that the Europeans were also motivated at least in part by a sense of guilt stemming from the vile atrocities which had been committed by Germany's notorious chancellor, Adolf Hitler. However, in order for the United Nations plan to actually work, the Arab Palestinians had to be willing to surrender over half of their land. As we have seen, the Arabs rejected the forced division of their land via United Nations Resolution 181, and chose to go to war instead. With the Arab defeat in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the forced expulsion of the Palestinians from the State of Israel only grew worse, and their plight has continued to this day, along with their anger and frustration against, and their oppression by, the Zionist Jews of Israel.
As I mentioned earlier, at the time that the State of Israel was unilaterally created by the Zionist Jews, the Jews only comprised about thirty-three per cent of the population of Palestine, and possibly even less. It all depends on who you choose to believe. The remainder were of Arab descent. In fact, online sources state that only a few decades prior to that time, the Jewish population of Palestine hovered around eleven per cent. So the Jewish propaganda which claims that Palestine has always been primarily occupied by Jews is an absolute lie, and has simply been used as a tool to try to legitimize the Zionist Jews' creation of a state in 1948 Palestine.
If you read some of my other articles, such as "The Fruits Of Disobedience", you will learn that between a variety of foreign invasions, occupations and expulsions -- referred to as the diasporas -- the vast majority of Jews were forced to live outside of the physical land of Israel for quite a few centuries during the course of their history. It happened with the Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians and the Romans. These became known as the Lost Tribes of Israel. The Bible informs us that this was in fact by the Lord's Design, and that in most cases it was the Israelites' punishment for rejecting God's Laws, God's Prophets, and in the case of the Roman incursions, their very own Messiah.
Furthermore, due to these invasions, occupations, expulsions and the intermarriages which occurred, the Jewish gene pool became heavily corrupted. As I have mentioned before, this is in fact one of the reasons why the Jews of Benjamin and Judah despised the Jews of Samaria, and viewed them as half-breeds, even though the gene pool of the Jews of Judah also became polluted as a result of the Babylonian Captivity, as well as the Roman occupation. This is why we find the following verse in the Gospel of John:
"Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans."
John 4:9, KJV
As a result of this genetic corruption, I must really wonder how many Israelis today are actual Jews in the truest sense of the word. They may be Jewish by religion, but how many of them are really fully Jewish in a biological sense? In other words, how many of them are actually of the tribe of Judah? While I honestly don't know if this point is true or not, I have read online that many of the Jews who have returned to Israel from Europe, Russia, the USA and other areas of the world, are not Jews at all, but are in fact usurpers who are pretending to be Jews. Given the verses that we studied in part two of this series regarding those who claim to be of Jewish origin, is it possible that there is some truth to this belief?
As you may know, from the time of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War until now, there have been other conflicts between the Arabs and the Jews; including the 1967 Six-Day War, as well as the October 6, 1973 war, which is commonly referred to as the Yom Kippur War. In addition to these two wars, there have also been the First Lebanon War, the Second Lebanon War, the First Intifada, the Second Intifada and the three-week Gaza War. Then, of course, there are the Palestinian suicide bomber attacks, Israeli military incursions into the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, etc. In short, because of the Arabs' rejection of United Nations Resolution 181 in 1948, there have been over sixty years of unnecessary war and conflict. In short, there is plenty of blame to be cast on both sides of the fence.
So tell me; hasn't there been enough violence and oppression now? Isn't it time to bring this millennia-old conflict to its conclusion? If the Zionist Jews were able to unilaterally declare their state in 1948, without any consultation with the Palestinians whatsoever, and if the United States was so quick to recognize that state over sixty years ago, why are both the USA and Israel behaving so hypocritically now, by offering such strong resistance to the Palestinians making a similar request at the United Nations Security Council? Why does the administration of US President Barack Obama display such hypocrisy by insisting that renewed negotiations with Israeli hardliners such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is the only legitimate path to peace, when the Zionists did not follow this same formula over sixty years ago? Not only did they not negotiate with the Palestinians, but they began to expel them and oppress them the minute that they had the upper hand.
Before any of you pro-Israel American Christians or pols try to justify your Israel-supporting position by mentioning all of the Palestinian suicide bomber attacks, or the Gazans lobbing inaccurate, homemade missiles into Israel, or maybe well-known Arab utterances such as "the Zionist Plague", or "driving the Jews into the sea", or "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades", let me remind you of something very important.
In all the long years that the Israelis and the Palestinians have been in conflict with each other, while the American and Jewish press have both emphasized how many Israelis have been killed by Palestinian suicide bombers, as a means to sway public opinion, the fact of the matter remains that the Israelis have killed far more Palestinians -- numbering in the thousands -- than the Palestinians have killed Israelis. The Jews have even resorted to outright assassination plots. Time and time again, the Israelis have used overwhelming and inappropriate force against the Palestinians. How can anyone possibly compare advanced Israeli military hardware with Palestinian youth throwing stones, or Gazans lobbing mortars that rarely harm anyone? To make such a comparison is, in my view, ridiculous to say the least.
The Israelis have done everything possible to make life more difficult for the Palestinians. This has included economic oppression, military oppression, chopping up their land so that it is now almost next to impossible for them to create a contiguous Palestinian State, multitudes of checkpoints, the barrier wall, etc. And let's not forget that the Arabs who live inside of Israel are treated like second class citizens as well.
My point is, if we use the excuse that the Palestinians are too violent to deserve their own state, then based on their greater, reciprocal violence, the Israelis don't deserve a state either. The truth is, there's been plenty of violence on both sides of the fence. There's been plenty of hatred and bigotry on both sides of the fence. There's been plenty of deception on both sides of the fence. There's been plenty of pride and prejudice on both sides of the fence. There's been plenty of corruption on both sides of the fence. There's been plenty of psychological manipulation of public opinion on both sides of the fence. In short, there is plenty of blame and guilt to be found on both sides of the fence.
In fact, if we use violence as a criteria, maybe the United States of America doesn't deserve to be a nation either due to all of the violent wars and conflicts she has started, or at least engaged in over the years. Do I need to remind you that the American Revolution was fought to throw off British political and economic oppression and tyranny? Does anyone today blame America for fighting a war against the British? Of course not. The Americans killed many British soldiers, and the British killed many Americans soldiers; yet people in America have been taught that this was a justified war in order to gain independence from the British Empire. So why then does the United States accuse the Palestinians of being terrorists when they are involved in a very similar struggle to liberate themselves from the tyranny, oppression and illegal occupation of their lands by Israel?
Remember this: Who is labeled a terrorist and who is labeled a freedom fighter simply depends on who possesses the better propaganda machine.
While many of us may not agree with, and are even appalled by their tactics, such as targeting Israeli civilians, we still need to recognize that the Palestinians are engaged in a struggle for independence. Perhaps if we were forced to endure decades of Israeli belligerence and oppression, we would begin to understand the Palestinian situation in a different light, and we would not be so quick to condemn them.
Please don't misinterpret my words or assume that I support Palestinian violence, as I most certainly do not. Please refer to my three-part series entitled "Palestinian Suicide Bombers And Middle East Peace", as well as some of my other politically-oriented articles, in order to acquire a more thorough perspective regarding my personal views concerning war and violence. I assure you that I am a peacemaker, and not a warmonger.
As you will know, in a more recent example, despite strong resistance from some American lawmakers, and without really knowing who they are, US President Barack Obama supported the Libyan rebels in throwing off the oppressive yoke of longtime dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Along with some of the NATO members of Europe, the Obama Administration even provided military assistance and intelligence to the Libyan rebels, in order to ensure that they would be victorious over Colonel Gaddafi.
With Obama's intervention in Libya, we see a clear American double standard. In other words, the facts concerning the Palestinian struggle against the Israelis are known by many informed people. We know who the players are. We know what their grievances are. We know what approaches have already been tried, and failed. We know what injustices have been committed. We know what mistakes have been made. We know what ultimately has to happen in order to achieve lasting peace.
Despite the clarity of the situation, as we have seen, the Obama administration has made known that it will not do what needs to be done, by voting in favor of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' request for full United Nations membership, and recognition of the State of Palestine.
In contrast, with a very limited amount of questionable and uncertain information, President Obama made the decision to not only lend his verbal support to the Libyan rebels, but America's military support as well. So tell me; why in the world did the Libyan rebels merit America's decisive support while Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians have not? Why did President Obama not insist on the Libyan rebels negotiating with Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, as he is now insisting that the Palestinians do with the Zionist Jews? Is it possible that I have already provided you with a clear answer? Can that answer possibly be found in powerful Jewish lobbies in Washington, DC such as the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee? What do you think?
Within a few short hours, American President Barack Hussein Obama will be given an opportunity to leave his indelible mark on the world. He will have a chance to make history, and to leave behind a legacy which has been denied to many world leaders before him, and which will be remembered for many years to come. President Obama can either choose to be just another Israeli stooge and puppet and demonstrate his weakness, or else he can choose to rise to the occasion, and demonstrate real leadership, audacity, boldness and vision. What will he do? We don't have long to find out.
