“The Palestinian Problem” Pt. 2
Zechariah 2:8 “…for he who touches you (Israel) touches the apple of His eye.”
4. The 10 Facts That Dismisses and Destroys The “Palestinian Problem”.
Fact #1: The driving force behind this issue is summed up in one word…hatred.
Most of us don’t realize how deep the hate is with the Arab towards the Jew. This hatred did not exist until Mohammed influence in the 7th century.
Arab children in most Arab counties are first indoctrinated with hate for the Jew in their homes and then their school’s textbooks!
Former Syrian Minister of Education, Suleiman
Al-Khash wrote, “The hatred which we indoctrinate into the minds of our children from their birth is sacred.”
In one Jordanian high school textbook says, “Israel was born to die…” Then on the back of the book is a map showing Arab armies circling Israel with missiles aimed at Tel Aviv.
In a Jordanian spelling book for 5th graders, the student is to practice writing, “We shall expel all the Jews from the Arab countries”
In a grammar book in Egypt for junior high they are to write, “The Arabs do not cease to act for the extermination of Israel.”
David Bar-Illan who grew up in Syria and later escaped to Israel remembers, “I remember that the Muslim boys threw stones at me…” from his education he says, “I remember it is written that all Jews are evil. And their (Jews) God is a god who wants to drink the blood of all the other people…this was in the Arabic book at the education system…”
Philip Hitti, a leading Arab historian says, hatred is “A chronic mental illness.”
Fact #2 Jews have always been a majority in the land.
Fact #3: It was not until the humiliating defeat of 1967, two decades after Israel’s sovereignty in the land, that a strong Arab connection was established.
Fact #4: If not careful the peace table will eventually destroy Israel.
The news media and politicians all call it the “peace process”, but it’s better said “piece process” – one piece of land after the next! President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair have devised a “Road Map to Peace”…really it’s a road map for Israel giving up more of it’s half of their 23%.
Israel in the last 60 years has been in 6 bloody wars with its Arab neighbors! And every time Israel has come out on top! Here me…what the Arab nations have failed to do on the battlefield they have accomplished at the peace table!
Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba said 30 years ago, “The only way to destroy Israel is through peace.”
I personally think that every time the PLO has come close to agree on principle with Israel it was only so they can regroup and rearm themselves.
Fact #5: After 1948 when Israel became a nation, the name “Palestinian” almost became extinct.
Fact #6: Under British rule, the Jews were carefully called “Palestinian Jews” because they did not want to offend the Arabs from Jordan, Egypt and Syria who hated the name “Palestinian”.
Fact #7: Arabs are Semites; Philistines were non-Semitic people.
“Non-Semitic = non-Arab, non-Jewish.
One of the strongest lies that even Yasser Arafat promoted among his people was that today’s Palestinian Arabs are descendants of ancient Philistines.
Anwar Sadat the former President of Egypt denounced this claim, “The assassination of Arab brethren like Goliath, Jewish sheep-herders
