If Israel goes back to the 1967 lines, Palestinians cease to exist.

Reader comment on item: Obama vs Netanyahu, Round Three

Submitted by Dr. Ron Polland (United States), May 30, 2011 at 00:18

Need I remind everyone that the concept of a "unique Palestinian People fighting to reclaim its ancient homeland since time immemorial" did not exist before 1964 and the PLO Charter. The Palestinian National Movement started in the 1920's by Amin al-Husseini, Hitler's partner in the ME, was the concept of a 100% ARAB and zero Jewish Palestine. Al-Husseini was a Pan-Arabist, not a pro-Palestinian. At that time Palestinians were referred to as Jews.

The Pallys made no claims on the illegal occupation of the West Bank - by Jordan, and the illegal occupation of Gaza - by Egypt, between 1949 and 1967. Therefore, the Pallys must give up any claims to the West Bank and Gaza, forget about UN 242, and forget about their bogus "Right of Return" which has been paid in full with a population exchange of Jews from nine Arab nations.
