Keep repeating a lie often enough until it becomes a truth

Reader comment on item: Recognizing Israel as the Jewish State: Statements, Actions, Analyses
in response to reader comment: Who are the Palestinians

Submitted by Silverio Facundo Yareaj (Mexico), May 23, 2011 at 19:02

... for the benefit of other readers who might read your prejudiced view and be influenced by it, here it goes in a nutshell:

The non-entity "palestinians" were the smart creation a-la Madison Av. of an until then unknown, non-descript people whose magnificent purpose was to change the outlook of a tiny, 20,000 sq.km. 3-million-people Israel being bullied by over a dozen arab nations with several million sq. km. of land and over 100 million inhabitants to the new narrative of powerful, imperialistic Israel occupying and subjugating the poor, peaceful, hard-working pious arabs of Judea and Samaria and Gaza.

That these incompetent, corrupt antisemites in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Lybia and Saudi Arabia couldn't destroy Israel in four different attempts (1948, 1956, 1967, 1973) added insult to injury. A quick fix was needed, and soon!

As an added bonus, the ficticious "East-Jerusalem" concept was invented, to further deprive Jews of their spiritual, religious and national epicenter. Up until then nobody had ever heard of the term "East-Jerusalem". Or will you also come up with important "East-Jerusalemites" "poets and writers" throughout the centuries?

The whole world swallowed galdly and thankfully this canard, and up until today we have the centuries-old anti-Jewish blood-libel in new wrapping: "The Palestinians"

But I'm sure you didn't know that!
