in response to reader comment: Maybe, because Westerners have not yet ended their proxy war against Israel?

Dear Martin J. Malliet,

I don't dis agree with your Narrative. However, your particular interjection of facts reminds me of the great fiction of Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote.

Today, in 2001, several (19) Arabs commandeered 4 airplanes and gave the world 9/11. But how many people are alive today who experienced the event, firsthand? How many know that these are no less Muslim Arabs than the so-called Palestinians?

Generations come, and go. So that one must repeat one's Narrative, over, and over again.

However, that isn't anywhere near sufficiency. UNWRA pays for the schooling of the 4th, 5th, etc., generation. I know that you know that your truthful Narrative sampled here isn't taught to these newborn Philistines, and probably will not be today or tomorrow.

So one needs more than your "honest truth." But more than Realpolitik - which you seem to misunderstand - it consists of the Tactics of Bismark and Metternich before him to achieve Political goals for the countries of Europe with the aid of the Sword among Equals in Power in Europe, thereby achieving Peace through Balance.

Therefore, your Truth Narrative proposal is insufficient. You need more - Propaganda, at which the Philistines are far superior to the Truthful Jews, Israelis, and Zionists. Here are some suggestion:.

(1) Don't call the Palestinians. Call the Philistines.

(2) Insist that the "Occupied" territories are "Liberated" territories.

(3) Exclaim Zionism Nationalist of the Jewish People (like any other People of Adam).

(4) Explain that Jordan, Palestine, were all part of Greater Syria under the Ottomans - so the Philistines are also Syrians and Jordanians.

(5) Remind people that there are 6,000,000 Citizenship vacancies in Europe for the Philistines without a homeland, like the Jews from 1945-1948.

(6) there are also 5,000,000 vacancies among the 22 Arab countries vacated by Jews when they moved to Israel (counting their descendants).

I hope you got the drift. You will never get anywhere (I hold) merely by repeating TRUTH. You have to learn HASBARA, Advertising, and do it over, and over again, for new generations, and the uninformed who haven't yet been brain-washed beyond reach-ability to Truth.
