What was replied to an Israeli-Arab about "palestine" true history

Drora replies to Samar (an Arab in Israel):

Samar from Haifa, there is not a single Arab in the State of Israel or in the territories of the Land of Israel who does not have an Arab homeland (and therefore you are Arabs).

You invaded / leaked / penetrated - to the Land of Israel under the auspices, encouragement and backing of the Ottoman occupier and the British occupier, but you did not become the owner or sovereign as a result.

Open the world map, Arabs from Israel. You will find that the territory of the Arab countries (22) is larger than the territory of the European continent, and the territory of all the Muslim countries (56) covers about a third of the earth. A vast and indescribable area. Resources of oil and wealth unexplored.

So on the face of it it seems really okay for the Jewish people to have one tiny state of their own, without having to share it with another Muslim Arab people, right?

And let me tell you a few words about the Palestinian "people."

You are not a people. You are a Muslim fiction whose sole purpose is to conquer the Land of Israel.

Let's start with your name:

The Romans who conquered Israel called it as part of the act of conquest 'Provincial Palestine' - after the Philistines who lived in the Israeli coastal cities. The Philistines were red-haired seafarers who came to the shores of Israel from Europe and disappeared from our region about 1,600 years before the birth of Muhammad.

Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula have nothing to do with the Philistines - not genetic, not religious, not cultural, not historical and not geographically.

You are Arabs and not Philistines.

Equally, the Romans could call Israel a Swiss province. Would that have made you Swiss?

As for the Land of Israel, Samar from Haifa. Choose any historical record, any historical map, any historian accepted by the international academy that will show us where Palestine is, when there was ever in human history a state or country called Palestine, when there was ever in human history a "people" called the Palestinian people, who are you , Where did you come from and what is your connection to the territories of the Land of Israel?

Can not find a single detail anywhere in the world, including not among Muslim and Arab scholars (including the Qur'an in which the Land of Israel is called 'the Land of Israel, the land of the people of Israel') that will corroborate your arguments.

There is British documentation from the British Mandate period, Turkish documentation from the Ottoman period, documentation of all the conquests that took place in the Land of Israel - there is no mention of either a Palestinian people or a Palestinian state.

Well, let's conclude that if you find any documentation (which is not part of the Palestinian propaganda that changes historical facts in retrospect) - to be you and your existence in the Land of Israel - we already have something to start with.

You are a random cluster of factions and phalanxes from around the Muslim world, who hate each other. . . Almost like you hate us. This is actually the only thing that unites you - hatred of zionists. It's a very shabby base to drive on with!

In 1948, the number of Arabs living in Israel was the same as the number of Jews living in Arab countries. The twentieth century was a century of migration and population exchange across the planet. All Jews from Arab countries immigrated to their homeland Israel. All the Arabs from Israel were supposed to emigrate back to their Arab homelands ...

Not only did you not do so - you continued to infiltrate and infiltrate Israeli territory in any sophisticated way imaginable, and the lax policy of the State of Israel allowed you to.

In fact, today you have a Palestinian state, it is Jordan. But you want for yourself three Palestinians - Jordan, the "new Palestine" to be established in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and of course Israeli Arabs who identify themselves as Palestinians will continue to live in Israel and bring more and more Palestinian "brothers" from around the world.

Over the years (with the Zionist settlement) you have adopted the Jewish ethos, that is - the sanctity of Jerusalem and the right of return to Zion.

Although you built a mosque in the center of the Jewish Holy of Holies (a common Muslim custom in our world), your holy city is Mecca and not Jerusalem and you have the right of return only to your Arab homeland and not to Zion.

#In conclusion:,

I will refer you to a kind and humorous book. It is called " "Great Pleasure Excursion" in the Holy Land and was written by a writer named Samuel Longhorn (known as Mark Twain) in 1867.

He toured Israel length and breadth. He saw no Palestinians here, no green orchards, no Arab villages, no bustling cities. nothing. He saw and described desolation, swamps, cholera, fever, sands. "The Land of Weeping," as he called the Land of Israel.

All that is here, this paradise called Israel - built the Jewish genius. No wonder you and your brothers covet it!

And if you are sitting in your home connected to electricity and typing an answer on a computer, it is because the grades have arranged a country here that allows you to live on a completely different level than 99% of your sisters in Arab countries.

An Israeli Jewish citizen, the owner of the place, aligns herself with Israel.
