Since the Oslo accords, the governments of Israel and the U.S. under different prime ministers and Presidents have unsuccessfully tried to reach peace with the bogus Palestinian entity. I mention the epithet “bogus” because, as I have related in previous essays, the English term “Palestinian” which is not an Arab name, was shrewdly invented for political purposes by the Arabs right after the birth of the State of Israel in 1948 and it became even more prominent and globalized after the arch-terrorist Arafat was brought from Tunis to the shores of Israel by a pathetic government headed by Peres, Barak and Yiitzhak Rabin in 1992 leading to a policy of land-for-peace, which remains in effect to this day.
Of some interest to those of you who may not know this, the so-called “Palestinians” are not natives of Israel, but Arabs who migrated from neighboring Arab countries in 1918. The name “Palestina” is a Latin-Roman name based on the Hebrew Biblical name of the ancient “Philistines” — “Plishtim” in Hebrew. The Philistines are extinct since approximately 2,000 years ago, and have no ancestral or historical relationship to Arabs. During the British mandate, the local Arabs never referred to themselves as “Palestinians,” but “Arabs.” So there is no ethnical, cultural or language history that could be attributed to the present so-called “Palestinians.” In fact, before the birth of the State of Israel, Jews were referred to as Palestinians. If you would bother searching history and encyclopedias, you will not find an Arabic name for Palestinian. Thus, “Palestinian” people have never existed as an autonomous entity.
Yet, in spite of indisputable historical facts, the very successful propaganda concocted by the Arabs to turn a phony culture and nation of Palestinian Arabs into a dismal fact has been accepted by the world of nations oblivious of Arab hostility, and reluctantly swallowed through intense pressure by successive Israel governments. The Arabs will never recognize Israel as a sovereign Jewish nation, nor will they agree to partition the land into two states and “live in peace and security,” as echoed by Western nations ad nauseam. The Arabs are actually engaged in a religious war against Israel and their only raison d’etre is the annihilation of the Jewish state to be replaced by their own 23rd Arab Islamic entity. Importantly, their ultimate ambition is to own not just the Land of Israel in its entirety (as illustrated in their own maps), but especially Jerusalem and the Temple Mount because they know that these holy sites symbolize religion, history, home and future of the Jewish people throughout the world.
As long as the Western world’s pressure on Israel continues to ignore the false Palestinian revisionist and false accounts and their interest lies in placating the Arab world rather than justice, historical accuracy and ethical truth, no parade of political advisors and emissaries to the Land of Israel will ever achieve peace in this troubled small corner of the world, and all wheeling and dealings will come to naught as it has in the past because the fate of Israel as a nation is to be eternal and a light to the nations as prophesied several times in the Jewish Scriptures.
