Israel's Land... Not Occupiers

CLEVER TRICKERY? or Lying Rhetoric...
News item: Israeli Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi (Ra'am Ta'al Party) February 13, 2010 declares that the Palestinian Arabs were not immigrants to the Land of Israel: "We did not arrive in the country on planes and we did not immigrate here ... if someone wishes to expel us, I'll say this: Whoever got here last will be leaving first." Fellow Arab MK Mohammed Barakeh (Hadash) echoed Tibi's words: "We did not immigrate from anywhere. This land is ours. To my regret, most of this land had been robbed over the course of dozens of years." - Ynetnews
No, Mr. Ahmed Tibi, the Jewish people were not latecomers and do not therefore, as you cleverly try to insinuate, have to be evicted first due to the fact that the Palestinians 'arrived first, before them.'

But, you know history as well as I do, Mr. Tibi? You know that, willed by God, the Jewish people arrived here already during the time of Moses and Joshua, and that they were longer occupants of this land - holy to them by God's decree, than any other occupying power - be it the Canaanites, the Mamluks, the Turks, the British or the - by the world labeled "illegal"- Jordanian occupation.

The Palestinians were never occupying masters of this land, but the few who were here during the Turkish, British and Jordanian occupations lived under the flag of those powers. In fact, many who now claim to be the authentic 'Palestinians' immigrated to this land during the time of the British Mandate, attracted by the conditions to earn a living which were better here than in the surrounding countries from which they came. This has been superbly documented by Joan Peters in her classic From Time Immemorial (JKAP Publications, Chicago, 1984).

What, then, is this clever insinuation all about, Mr. Tibi? Whom do you want to impress with your erroneous statement? Those Jews who have forgotten their roots; where they came from?
They were longer here than any other nation. And though many may not believe it anymore themselves, the God of Israel does. He not only gave them this, His land, "as an everlasting possession," but He promised repeatedly through His prophets that, after a time of dispersion, He would bring them back to it.

So next time be careful when you speak about eviction! For if you, as a Muslim, believe that your Allah is the same God as the God of Israel - and even the Quran speaks of the return of the Jewish people to their land - then surely you and all of us need to fear and tremble lest we find ourselves fighting the will of the Almighty!

The Palestinian Arabs are the occupiers of Jewish land

Tell the World the are delusional in thinking that Arabs belong in Israel - There will never be a an Arab/Palestinian State together or adjacent to Eretz Israel.
There has never such a nation as the Palestinian/Arab People.
The Arab/Moslem Koran specifically states in

The Qur'an 17:104 - states the land belongs to the Jewish people

If the historic documents, comments written by eyewitnesses and declarations by the most authoritative Arab scholars are still not enough, let us quote the most important source for Muslim Arabs:

"And thereafter we [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd'.".

Any sincere Muslim must recognize the Land they call "Palestine" as the Jewish Homeland, according to the book considered by Muslims to be the most sacred word and Allah's ultimate revelation.

Any building of housing in The Greater Israel is the right and duty of the Israeli government. There is no such a thing as occupied territory. It is the land of Israel for over 4,000 years.

Sequence of historical events, agreements and a non-broken series of treaties and resolutions, as laid out by the San Remo Resolution, the League of Nations and the United Nations, gives the Jewish People title to the city of Jerusalem and the rest of Israel.

Let the Arab nation take the Palestinian Arabs and settle the in the Million plus Jewish home that they evicted from their countries and allow the Jewish nation to live in peace.

A true peace in the Middle East will be an economic phenomenon that the world has never seen. But this can only be accomplished when there is a real peace. The Arabs must stop preaching and teaching hate.

Any liberal Israeli that is delusional about Arab intention and wants to give any land in Israel to the Arabs should live Israel, he does not belong in Israel.

No Jew has the right to yield the rights of the Jewish People in Israel - David Ben Gurion

No Jew has the right to yield the rights of
the Jewish People in Israel -
David Ben Gurion
(David Ben-Gurion was the first Prime Minister of Israel and widely hailed as
the State's main founder).
"No Jew has the right to yield the rights
of the Jewish People in Israel.
No Jew has the authority to do so.
No Jewish body has the authority to do so.
Not even the entire Jewish People alive today
has the right to yield any part of Israel.
It is the right of the Jewish People over the generations, a right that under
no conditions can be cancelled.
Even if Jews during a specific period proclaim
they are relinquishing this right, they have neither the power nor the
authority to deny it to future generations.
No concession of this type is binding or
obligates the Jewish People. Our right to the country - the entire country -
exists as an eternal right, and we shall not yield this historic right until
its full and complete redemption is realized."
(David Ben Gurion, Zionist Congress, Basel,
Switzerland, 1937.)
"No country in the world exists today by
virtue of its 'right'.
All countries exist today by virtue of their
ability to defend themselves against those who seek their destruction."
“Man can live about forty days without food,
about three days without water, about eight minutes without air, but only for
one second without hope”
