All anyone ever hears is the Palestinian perspective. Here's the world scoop. The poor victimized Palestinians are being imprisoned and forced into an apartheid by the the evil right wing Israelis.<br />
I wish people would come to know the truth about the region of Palestine that suddenly became a country when Israel came home. The idea of a Palestinian people is a tactical ploy by the Arabs that has paid off well.<br />
Way back on March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here's what he said:<br />
“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.<br />
“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”<br />
One the left eye, the other the right.
