Reader comment on: UK Textbook Wipes Israel Off the Map

The British also helped found modern day Iraq and Jordan (the Arab Palestinian state), yet no one moans that Arabs have yet more and more land. The Jewish state was just one of five states made in the collapsed Ottoman Empire to accommodate the original peoples, the Jews, who were originally called the Palestinians and the Arabs (big clue), only fairly recently called Palestinians (circa 1970s) - they are Egyptians and Syrians and other Arabs:


and said even earlier, here:

"There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity.... yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel."
- Zuheir Muhsin, late Military Department head of the PLO and member of its Executive Council (Dutch daily Trouw, March 1977)

People need to ask themselves: can I name any ancient Arab Palestinian literature? The bedrock of a society... the Palestinian Talmud? It is Jewish, the Bible? The Dead Sea Scrolls - recently put online, are Jewish.. all in Hebrew not Arabic. All the ancient literature from Egyptian Steles to the Cyrus Cylinder to the Bible, a collection of books which corroborate secular literature confirm that Jews have an ancient land, its capital, Jerusalem in Israel.

Palestinians are majority Muslims with some Christian, and even fewer secular; they know Jews belong in Israel and that their return is promised. Baby Jesus, a Jew from Jewish parents was born in Bethlehem when there were no Muslims, where Muslims claim Jesus was born you will find no Jews; it is Judenrein. The Palestinians being Muslim always choose political parties which promise Sharia (i.e. text adherent Qur'anic law), actually knowing that Israel belongs to the Jews as the Qur'an itself (i.e. Allah) states that Israel is promised to the Jew and the Jews would return to their land Sura in the latter days (17:104). But they don't like it as all Jewish names e.g. David, Shlomo, Yehuda, Binyamin, Yaakov and culture prove the Jewish ancient link to the land.

Sahih International

And We said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, "Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering."
