Act like a Ghetto Jew and Be Treated as a Ghetto Jew


emperor kerry

I have said it before in my articles and it is worth repeating here since the Israeli Government is loathe to mention any of this. There was never a Palestinian people nor a country called Palestine. It is pure fiction that successive Israeli Governments have never sought fit to counter for fear of offending anyone. In biblical times, all of what is now Israel and Judea and Samaria (West Bank) was Jewish. When the Romans conquered the territory they named the entire area “Philistina” in order to rub salt into the wounds of the defeated Jews by renaming it in honour of the Jews’ ancient and mortal enemies the Philistines. By doing so, the Romans acknowledged that the real owners of the entire territory were Jews and over the centuries the name Philistina was anglicized to Palestine.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, if one were referred to as a Palestinian, that automatically implied that he or she was Jewish. Decades later, Arabs cleverly commandeered the term “Palestinian” and the unknowing masses bought the message that these same Arabs have never forgiven the division of their “country” by the UN. The facts are that Palestine was a geographical land mass administered finally by the British from 1914 until the 1947 partition plan, when only a small part was allocated back to its centuries-old rightful owners, the Jewish people.

Fortunately for these people they were dealing with Jews. No other country or people on the face of the earth would have even indulged their ludicrous and incessant claims nor given them the time of day. Jordan certainly did not.

Unfortunately for Israel, it to this day has no concept of Hasbara, let alone realises that Hasbara is a war that Abbas and Co. have mastered to an extent beyond their wildest imagination. They have turned history on its head and convinced the world of the truth of the Palestinian narrative.

It is now up to supporters of Israel worldwide to counter the Palestinian narrative of Abbas & Co. by engaging politicians and others with the pertinent facts and getting them to come out publicly with these facts.

  1. I just want to bitch slap this fool!!!

  2. Who placed Kerry or any American anything over Israel? Or who placed Israel under anyone? More than 2000 years waiting to take a shot at a Jewish nation not dominated by gentiles. How are we doing?

  3. Israel, tell john kerry to go to hell! Neither he nor his boss represent the American people. We love Israel.

  4. Israel, tell john kerry to go to hell! Neither he nor his boss represent the American people. We love Israel.

  5. This is what happens when you have a Muslim president and a left wing (Democrats) that hate all things good and honest!

  6. Cody Flecker says:

    Israel allowed this to happen. By acting like you still live in a Ghetto, you have enabled your enemies to take control of your actions. Israel should tell Obama and Kerry to go to hell and mind your own business. That is what Obama and Kerry would say to any country telling the USA what to do. Israel just doesn't have the balls to act as an independent nation.

  7. Aryeh Sax says:

    I agree, except for the part where Obama would tell any country to go to hell, only the Jewish State will he tell to go to hell. The rest he would apologize to them for the U.S.'s past wrongs and offer them any support he can. Even support against Israel's policies.

  9. Never again that mentality!

  10. Jeremiah Ginsberg says:

    Amen! Mr. Solomon! Masterfully written! Thank you for your perception and courage! Moses said,"You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods." (Exodus 23:31-33) Where is he now when you need him?

  11. Aryeh Sax says:

    Moses was the speaker passing on the the word of G-D, from the lips of the creator himself. that is my understanding.

  12. since when does America have any right to tell a soverign nation what to do?

  13. Please don't pay any attention to John Kerry – we don't!

  14. The best thing for Israel to do is kick Kerry to the curb and send him back to America. He does not represent all Americans.

  15. I as an American Citizen feel the need to say that Kerry nor the Obama administration represents the American peoples views on Israel or foreign policy in general. We love Israel. We pray for Israel.

    TOP TEN INDICATORS THAT YOUR EMPLOYER HAS CHANGED TO OBAMACARE

    10. Your annual breast exam is done at Hooters.

    9. Directions to your doctor’s office include “Take a left when you enter
    the trailer park.”

    8. The tongue depressors taste faintly of Fudgesicles.

    7. The only proctologist in the plan is “Bachus 100” from Roto-Rooter.

    6. The only item listed under Preventive Care Coverage is “An apple a
    day..”

    5. Your primary care physician is wearing the coveralls with
    a Goodwill brand tag.

    4. Where it says, “The patient is responsible for 200% of out-of-network
    charges,” it’s not a typographical error.

    3. The only expense that is 100% covered is “embalming.”

    2. Your Prozac comes in different colors with little M’s on them.

    AND THE NUMBER ONE SIGN YOU’VE JOINED OBAMACARE:

    1. You ask for Viagra and they give you a Popsicle stick and duct
    tape Less

  17. Allen Miller says:

    Kerry is a scumbag!

  18. Kerry suffers from Obama Complex.

  19. Well said… Israel is not a vassal of the US. if anyone has any doubts about Obama's personal agenda, consider the fact that over a number of years before he became president he didn't under a peep while he sat passively during the
    so-called Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Sunday diatribes against Jews and Israel.

  20. Gil Solomon deserves much praise and recognition for his intelligence and clarity of thought – he knows and understands Jewish and Israeli history and where the Arabs originally came from. But now what we must do is face the challenge and the primary requirement is for the Jewish people to unite. If Israel will feel that we are ready to support them and thus make them less dependent on American support, especially financially, they will feel much empowered. It is absolutely necessary to mount a powerful campaign to EDUCATE the world of our historical truth and reject the Arabian fables unconditionally. This will be costly but we should not be deterred and make whatever sacrifices are necessary. Now, Mr. Solomon, we need a plan of action and open the eyes of some of our own people who do not understand the complexity of Israel's position.
