Still Denying Old Testament

Reader comment on item: Why Newt Gingrich Was Right about Palestinian History

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Jan 6, 2012 at 19:11

See now you are beginning to show your true colours... all that garb of sensibility only lasted for a little while.

Historical fact: The Israelites under Joshua were not invaders but returnees to their own land from Egypt.

Yeah ... how so? Again the Old Testament does not support you. The Jewish people did not originate from Modern Israel but from Arabia further along - Iraq, Syria.

If you have evidence to the contrary .... lets hear it?


There is nothing more astounding when 22 fictional Islamic states which never existed before, accusing Jews of occupying Jerusalem and Hebron!

That logic makes MOST states as Illegal. Most Jews occupying Israel and claiming the land did not originate from Israel. That is the difference. People of Middle East - come from Middle East.

Most Arab Jews joined Israel later than - European Jews. Those are the ones who primarily created Israel.
