What "Palestine" is?

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Word Games

Submitted by Marcois Berenstein (Brazil), Jan 5, 2005 at 19:00

Mr.Pipes's incredible insight inspired many of us, of all religions who care about Israel's safety,sovereignty and nowadays its image before world's eyes.

I do strongly believe that concerning it that doesn't matter what we do -- most Europeans do HATE Jews and Israel and they'll continue to do so forever.It's in their blood.They simply inherited this disgust of our religion,our people and Zionism,a political movement aimed to restore Jewish self-confidence,respect and nationhood.Europeans were quite used to abuse Jews,until they were weaklings no more to their dismay.

Western media HATES Israel with a passion.The Guardian is only the tip of the iceberg.They condoned suicide-bombings against Israeli civillians,claiming that it was the other side's only weapon against the powerful IDF.

The "Palestine Question" was triggered by Nasser.There was never any country with such a name,never Jerusalem was claimed to be capital of any state,and the term "Palestinian People" only emerged into being AFTER Israeli smashing victory over its Arab foes in 1967.

Why do Egypt and Jordan ( another U.K.Foreign Office cooked-up state)didn't gave independence to the so-called "Palestinians" BEFORE the outbreak of that war?

Because none of them actually believed that a "Palestinian" people exists.

They are simply Arabs.No cultural differences with their fellow Syrian,Egyptian Arabs.None whatsoever.They have not any historic heritage in that place.The fact that many of the inhabited the region for centuries,doesn't give them any rights for it,for we should remember that JEWS WERE EXPELLED by the Romans,prohibited of returning,therefore Jews only claimed their ROBBED land back.This is Zionism.

I don't recognize any "Palestinian people",much less an independent country called "Palestine",and I never will,EVEN IF ISRAEL DOES.
