ARABIZATION INC. The all out myth of 'all Arabs being natives in all of the middle east'


A myth that terrorists which have far greater ambitions, such as to Islamize the entire region if not the entire world or racist local Arabization, have been using it (still do) to the loss of so many lives among Israelis, 'Palestinians', or as an added justification for foreign Arab invaders to "fight in Iraq - Arab land -- against the non Arabs: US, Britain", furthermore, it is a tool in the wider Arab land to fuel bitterness at the entire west, (with historic colonialists like Great Britain, France, Belgium, etc. in mind).

To be true to history, the Berbers were before the (other) Arabs conquered them in N. Africa like in Morocco & in Algeria.

The same as to the indigenous Egyptians who are namely the Nubians then the Coptic Christians and not today's mostly 'modern Arabs' the occupiers..

Or the fact that most Arabs in today's 'Palestine' - Israel are a mere few generations away from immigrants out of surrounding countries, in other words, foreign settlers.

Berbers: The Proud Raiders

They call themselves Amazigh, the proud
raiders. But most people know them as Berbers.

For millennia, the Berbers of North Africa fought against Roman, Arab and French invaders. And, despite a history of colonisation, they have managed to preserve their language and culture, and have defended their land.

But all this is set to change. Nine months ago, joint American-Moroccan company Lonestar, began oil exploration and drilling near the town of Talsinnt. Nick Pelham reports from Morocco.

After Arabs invaded Egypt in 640 C.E., the native Copts were subjected to centuries of Arabization and Islamization. In contrast to the Maronites of Lebanon (who had the opportunity of gathering with access to the Mediterranean) and in contrast to the Assyrians of northern Mesopotamia's highlands (who were able to retreat to a mountainous mini-homeland), the Copts of Egypt found themselves trapped between desert and Nile. When the British arrived in the country at the end of the nineteenth century, the Copts had been reduced to less
than 300,000. Profiting from English rule, the Christians of Egypt re-integrated themselves into public life.

The True Identity of the So-called Palestinians.The current myth is that these Arabs were long established in "Palestine", until the Jews came and "displaced" them. The fact is, that recent Arab immigration into the Land of Israel displaced the Jews. That the massive increase in Arab population was very recent is attested by the ruling of the United Nations: That any Arab who had lived in the Holy Land for two years and then left in 1948 qualifies as a "Palestinian refugee".
