the US want Palestine

nations made war to eliminate Israel
is essential to remind ourselves why large numbers of Arabs fled in 1948.
The main reason was their leaders urged and ordered them to leave.
So they wouldn’t be in harm’s way as the Arab armies conquered and
exterminated the Jews. Let there be no mistake about extermination: it was
the publicly announced and repeatedly broadcast Arab war aim.
majority who fled did so to facilitate that Arab war aim. They were, after
all, to be the beneficiaries of this objective. They wanted their
neighbors, the Jews of Palestine, to be wiped out by all means including
mass drowning in the sea. They wanted the free spoils of booty, treasure
and property. They wanted their homes, towns, cities and infrastructure.
greed was unconstrained by any quality of mercy. Conversion, which was
often an alternative in Islamic history to death for infidels, was not
Nakbah will be avenged
sad for the Arabs in Palestine that the Arab nations who had come to help
them execute this genocide were unsuccessful. How bitter, frustrated and
tearful the Arabs were at their impotence to exterminate the Jews and to
enrich themselves with their loot.
Nakbah - the catastrophe - is the term used by the Arabs for having failed
to extinguish the Jewish state at birth. Its anniversary is commemorated
is something menacing about ‘el Nakbah’. Because it is understood to
mean a temporary glitch in achieving the genocidal aims of the Arab
was the result of the Six Days War (1967) initiated by Egypt’s Nasser,
Trans Jordan’s King Hussein, and Syria’s Assad. Contingents from Iraq,
Lebanon, Algeria and Kuwait also arrived. Israel was confronted by an Arab
force of some 465,000 troops, over 2,880 tanks and 810 aircraft. This huge
army suffered a second Nakbah.
Yom Kippur War in 1973 was launched by Egypt and Syria on Israel’s
holiest day when most of the population were at prayer in the synagogues.
Caught by surprise Israel suffered considerable casualties but recovered
to counter-attack and win this one too.
a UN cease fire call, hurriedly orchestrated by the Russians on behalf of
their client states, prevented Israel capturing Egypt’s Third Army, and
the fall of Cairo. Yet another Nakbah!
Defense Forces overcome terrorists
Israel Defense Forces has, for the present, overcome Palestinian terrorism
with new strategy and tactics. It has done what every political pundit and
armchair strategist pompously posited could not be done.
has provided a military solution against the Palestinian terrorist war of
attrition. Not a total solution to be sure, but effective enough for them
to cry uncle (Sam!). This is the reason the Palestinian Authority has
suddenly agreed to accept the Road Map. Not as a genuine olive branch, but
as a lifeline to alleviate their distress.
continue to nurture revenge
Arabs commemorate el Nakbah year after year, to keep their hopes and moral
high in anticipation of a glorious revenge. Mothers feed this ideal to
their children with their milk. The Islamic educational system in the Arab
countries methodically teaches Jew hatred and anti-Semitism in its schools
and universities. The Mullahs preach it most every Friday in their
sermons. The Arab world and its media are fully supportive.
express purpose of all this agitation is to keep motivation for Jewish
genocide alive and well. So that one fine day, when Allah wills, the Arabs
will exact their revenge and wipe Israel off the map. Their atlases
already anticipate this. Invariably Israel isn’t shown, only Palestine
will not host its willing executioners
force Israel to accept the return of our ‘willing executioners’ –
the original refugees and their descendants - would be a fatal, undeserved
and unforgivable injustice to our people.
would be outrageous to give these diehard terminators the freedom of our
streets and cities. It would be the height of absurdity to expect Israel
to host these millions or even hundreds of thousands of vengeful foes.
days the US would not knowingly host even one such Arab prospective
immigrant who had spent his entire life imbibing unrestrained hatred and
death dealing revenge for Americans! Yet the State Department wants Israel
to allow up to 3,000,000 of its enemies to return!
Map points the wrong way
returnees would constitute a Trojan horse – a fifth column par
excellence in the event of another war or intifada.
The altered demographics would
end the disingenuous vision of the Road Map sponsors. Two states living
side by side would be revealed as a pipe dream.
The Jewish State would very
soon be voted out of existence by its Arab majority.
The illogic of having two
states ruled by Palestinians, one called Israel and the other
Palestine, would be resolved by having one enlarged state of Palestine.
It’s on the cards that Jordan’s

It would be a mistake to suggest that these intellectuals are stupid. Yet

months ago that Israel is not Czechoslovakia. The unspoken message was
that Israel would not go quietly towards that final solution.
is surely not too late for the State Department to withdraw this untenable
“right of return”. Israel and the US should not have to clash over a
matter of life or death for Jews.
