euphemisms

Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai
in response to reader comment: Naming the Enemy

It is not just euphemisms related to Islamic terror, but about the word used to address the Arabs who came here looking for work from Syria, Iraq and Egypt when the Jews were rebuilding this land. Now they are called "Palestinians," an invention that took place right after the 1967 war. Prior to this time, Jews were called Palestinians on their passports, not the other way around. Other words that are definitely erroneous and meant to destroy Israel and the Jewish rights to the Land are: occupation and settlers. In addition, Arafat tried to erase our historical and biblical link to the Temple Mount by saying that there were never any Jewish temples here. Big lies have been repeated for decades and those too many who are not informed, believe them to be the truth.
