(from Roseanne: I maintain that Empire is behind all revisionist history bc that fuels its main industry-Faked Left/cointelpro agitation of all ethnic divisions, so as 2 profit from selling arms to both sides for war profits.)
Varda Epstein answers this question:
Why does Israel ‘object’ to a Palestinian State?
We wouldn’t have any objection if they’d build their state in the territories already given to them for this purpose, for instance Transjordan (77% of the original territory promised to the Jews for a Jewish National Home as per the Balfour Declaration and the San Remo Conference), Gaza (from which 8,500 Jews were expelled in order to gift the territory to the so-called Palestinians for their state), or in the Sinai (which Egyptian President Sisi recently offered to the so-called Palestinians for their state, an offer that was rejected out of hand).
Unfortunately, it isn’t about recognition of a state called Palestine. That isn’t what they want. What they want is for the Jews to be expelled from Israel and they want the territory for themselves, lock, stock, and barrel. They don’t acknowledge archaeological artifacts, history, and accounts in both the bible and the Quran suggesting Jewish indigeneity in the territory now called Israel. They don’t acknowledge a state called Israel. They don’t acknowledge any form of Jewish rights to the territory.
They say this frequently in their PA funded television fare and on television talk shows. Their clerics blare it in their mosques, and they prove it by refusing every offer Israel has ever made to settle the Arab war against the Jews. Even when Ehud Barak offered to cede parts of Jerusalem and to offer the Arabs full autonomy over the Temple Mount, the holiest Jewish site dating back to before Mohammed was a twinkle in his mother’s eyes, Yassir Arafat, negotiating for the Arabs, refused.
They want the whole thing. And until they get it, they will shoot rockets at Jews, run them over at bus stops, stab them in the streets of Jerusalem, damage the Jerusalem light rail system to the tune of millions of dollars, and cry foul when Israel defends itself.
It’s all a crock of propaganda, which many of us have taken to calling “Pallywood.”
Recognize them all you want. But then what are you going to do about recognizing Israel? What part are you going to let the Jews have? And what will your God say about it if you say the Jews have no right to the territory He gave them, both according to the bible AND the Quran?
Keep in mind also, that Israel is surrounded by 22 Arab states. Rich states, loaded with oil and wealth. Is there some reason they can’t take in their brethren?
That’s a rhetorical question. Because we know that Sisi did exactly that only a few short months ago, and the Arabs refused, because it’s not about statehood and never was. It’s about coveting what belongs to the Jews.
Furthermore, more Jews were expelled from Arab nations than the number of Arab refugees created by the war the Arabs inflicted on Israel in 1947. a full 860,000 Jews were thrown out of Arab nations and they were not allowed to take their savings with them.
The nascent state of Israel took them in. But there was no population exchange as is usual when there are conflicts over territory. The Arab states kept their refugee brethren refugees in perpetuity, to keep the lie alive, that they deserved their own state on Israeli territory.
This is why Israelis have a problem with Sweden recognizing “Palestine.” “Palestine” is a myth that takes away recognition of Jewish rights to the Jews’ indigenous lands. It’s a ploy to destroy the Jewish state. It’s a ploy to prevent the settlement of an old conflict THEY started and refuse to settle in a properly dignified manner, no matter how much land Israel cedes for the sake of peace. Because they don’t want this settled in any way that allows a Jewish presence to remain in Jewish territory. Because they don’t acknowledge that Jews are human beings who deserve respect.
Recognize them all you want, but recognize them on territory they already have. Otherwise, I’m afraid your antisemitism will be showing.
