While out riding my bike on a blisteringly cold Israeli day, I had a realization.
I guess pushing one’s body has a tendency to make us see things more clearly.
I realized the Palestinians really are an occupied people, just as they and their misguided supporters claim.
In fact the Palestinian occupation has existed long before the Six Day War.
In the early 20th Century -- about twenty to thirty years after the MODERN birth of Zionism, the “SYRIAN ARABS” that like to call themselves today “The Palestinians” found their “OCCUPATION”.
Yes, the “Palestinian Nation” has been occupied; occupied with condemning and denying Jewish emancipation and self-determination.
This, in a land that belonged to “Israelites” long before there was an illiterate, upstart, Arab warrior named Mohammed.
The “Palestinian Nation” has made it their job to hate Jews and Israel.
Their failure to recognize Israel’s right to exist as the Jewish nation/state is the unadulterated proof of their hatred and racism.
This “occupation” that consumes the Palestinians so completely has caused them to turn their backs on their own statehood, normalization of their society and peace with Israel.
What consumes these allegedly “occupied” Palestinians is a political policy so ripe with HATRED AND RACISM TOWARDS JEWS that it could be picked straight from a tree!
This occupation does not just cover the Palestinians; it has moved like a virus to other fanatics of the world.
You see fanatics have always had it out for the Jews and their aspirations of freedom and self-determination.
It makes no difference what fanatics you’re talking about: the extreme left and even the not so fanatical left; right wing fascists; Neo-Nazis; Islamists; Insane Third World dictators, all of them have made it their policy to hate Israel and blame the Jews.
The fanatics and the Occupied (with destroying Israel) Palestinians have bamboozled the world with the asinine notion that Israel, the only existing liberal democracy in the entire Middle East, is oppressing the Palestinians.
In fact it has always been the Arabs oppressing Jewsin the Land of Israel and all the other native peoples of the Levant and North Africa; remember Arabs, FROM the ARABIAN PENINSULA!
These are the same oppressed ARAB/Palestinians who have rejected peace and compromise since the UN LEGALLY decided to partition the British-ruled Mandate of Eretz Israel into two nations – a Jewish Nation State, now called Israel; the other, Arab or Palestine.
These are the same Arab/Palestinians who rejected peace in 1967 at the Khartoum summit, after all the Palestinian nation was occupied; occupied, that is, with destroying Israel.
These are the same Palestinians who perpetuated their own occupation by rejecting statehood and peace in 2000; opting yet again for another skirmish with Israel.
These are the same Palestinians who continued their occupation even after Israel UNILATERALLY uprooted her towns in the Gaza strip.
These are the same helpless, occupied Palestinians who value rockets and hopefully killing Jews above peace, stability, food and other goods.
A poll just taken recently shows that 88% of the Arabs/Palestinians think that armed conflict is the solution to their problem!
YES, THE PALESTINIANS ARE OCCUPIED: THEY ARE AS OCCUPIED AS THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN.
AFTER ALL, THEY HAVE A NATION/STATE TO DENIGRATE, DELEGITIMIZE, DENY AND DESTROY.
