4. Palestinian Passport


I have been sent pictures of Palestinian passports and I am guessing those who sent me pictures like the one below thought they had me cornered. Unfortunately for them, a simple Google search helped expose their attempt at a very poor photo shop job!

Can you find the difference?

Once again this is a BRITISH Palestine passport and not one that belonged to an Arab country called Palestine.

5. The National Palestine Basketball team

This is definitely the most pathetic attempt to prove an Arab Palestine country existed before Israel. Someone tweeted me this picture and dared me to explain how I still do not accept the fact that Palestine existed before Israel occupied it from the Arabs.

Well, this certainly is the Palestine basketball team but they are not Arab, Jewish or British. This is a photograph of the Illinois Palestine high school basketball varsity team!

This is what the Palestine team looks like today.

For those of you still not convinced, I challenge you to find me a year when an Arab Palestine country ever existed before Israel.

  1. Juliano Ruivo a Palestinian Arab nation or national people NEVER existed. The name Palestine was coined by the Romans when they occupied Israel from the Jews. The Romans changed the name to Palestine because when calling it Jerusalem or Israel or Judea it would be VERY hard to convince someone it does not belong to the Jews.
    Now Arabs are using the same name for the same purpose!
    Even their own leaders admit Palestinians are really Arabs from neighboring countries.
    THIS IS WHAT I DO! I debunk and expose lies against Israel!

  4. I don't get using the phrase 'before Israel'. Israel existed BC. Unless that stuff was from the Garden of Eden, the phrase is inaccurate. 'Before the rebirth of Israel,' okay, but it existed first and that shouldn't be trivialized either.

  5. I thought that the Romans used the term 'Palestine' to humiliate the Israelites – their enemy were the Philistines after all, and using that name was to add injury to insult. Also, in Arabic, the 'P' sound does not exist. So that the Arabs themselves call themselves 'Filisteenas'.

  6. There is also Yiddish on the Palestinian pound: "Funt" means pound in Yiddish, denoting the Palestinian (Jewish) pound, as opposed to the British pound. At that time, most of the people from the Yishuv spoke Yiddish. My grandfather, who lived in pre-state Palestine, and my mother who was born there, spoke Yiddish. And my great uncle fought in the Jewish Brigade of the British army during WWII.

  7. My late father in law was born in Rosh Pina in 1920. He had a palestinian passport. My own father (OBM) went to palestine in the 1920 from England with his family. He ALSO travelled with a palestinian passport. Therefore I tell my children that their grandfathers were both palestinian and entitled to the land. One son when beginning a university degree when sitting around the tutorial had to tell the group their story. One boy (Mohamad) said "my name is Mohamad and I am a Palestinian' My son's turn arrived, he said' My name is Yonah and I'm a palestinian) OUTRAGE from Mohamad. Upond questioning Mohamad's family came from Egypt. My yalmalka wearing bochur was the 'true' Palestinian.
    Outcome- by the end of the year the boys were friends.

  8. Like the Arabs have shared with the 800,000 Jews kicked out of Arab lands, not to mention the current genocide of Christians in the Middle East? I have a feeling this does not provoke similar outrage in you. Even from a purely secular perspective, Israel and the Jewish people have a right to the land based on simple fairness. If the rest of the religious world gave up the claims to all their lands, you'd have a stronger argument. Until then, selective moral outrage is pretty ridiculous.

  9. Only the willingly ignorant can deny these facts and the are welcome to an eternal existence without a creator.That would be hell.Palestine has always had Jews living there and there was never a country called by that name since it was district like the Golan, Would you name those Jews there a nation of Golanites?

  10. You sir, own the world Guiness record of the most BS in the less possible words! 😀
    You sadly manage to even contradict all palestinian autorities as they have admitted themself as just being Jordanians and Egyptians.

  11. In our office people from the Philippines, Nigeria, India, Pakistan, Greece, Russia all have one thing in common – the Muslim problems in these countries, specifically terrorism. If God does not exist, please explain the miracle of Israel. BTW Yaser Arafat was born in Egypt so he is Egyptian, not Palestinian because there is no such thing as Arab Palestine!

  12. Golda Meir quote: "
    There were no such thing as Palestinians. When was there an independent Palestinian people with a Palestinian state? It was either southern Syria before the First World War, and then it was a Palestine including Jordan. It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist."
    As quoted in Sunday Times (15 June 1969), also in The Washington Post (16 June 1969)

  13. Philistines were the arch enemy of Israel for some centuries. Sometimes there were treaties. I believe Mellech Dawied up looted them in the end. They are believed to come from an island near Greece or Italy and colonist Gaza area .

  14. The area was always occupied since the fal of the Chashmonaim (Maccabean) Kingdom in the first century before the common era, when the Romans took charge with the former Edomite forced Jewish King Horedos (Herod the great). Since then it has been occupied in the 7th century by the arabs, severl times by the cruisaders around the first milenium and in the 16th century by the Turks till 1917.

  15. If you go back to 1700 and the mapping and census taken of the land of Israel, you will find that not a single city or place had an Arab name and that there were no exclusive Arab communities. The communities were all Jewish or Christian. Any Arabs within the land of Israel were nomadic Beduins, or lived within predominantly Christian or Jewish communities.

  16. History did not begin with the Arab conquest in the seventh century. The people whose nation was destroyed by the Romans were the Jews. There were no Arab Palestinians then — not until seven hundred years later would an Arab rule prevail, and then briefly. And not by people known as "Palestinians." The short Arab rule would be reigning over Christians and Jews, who had been there to languish under various other foreign conquerors, — Roman, Byzantine, Persian, to name just three in the centuries between the Roman and Arab conquests. The peoples who conquered under the banner of the invading Arabians from the desert were often hired mercenaries who remained on the land as soldiers — not Arabians, but others who were enticed by the promise of the booty of conquest.

    From the time the Arabians, along with their non-Arabian recruits, entered Palestine and Syria, they found and themselves added to what was "ethnologically a chaos of all the possible human combinations to which, when Palestine became a land of pilgrimage, a new admixture was added."1 Among the peoples who have been counted as "indigenous Palestinian Arabs" are Balkans, Greeks, Syrians, Latins, Egyptians, Turks, Armenians, Italians, Persians, Kurds, Germans, Afghans, Circassians, Bosnians, Sudanese, Samaritans, Algerians, Motawila, and Tartars.

    John of Wurzburg lists for the middle era of the kingdom, Latins, Germans, Hungarians, Scots, Navarese, Bretons, English, Franks, Ruthenians, Bohemians, Greeks, Bulgarians, Georgians, Armenians, Syrians, Persian Nestorians, Indians,Egyptians, Copts, Maronites and natives from the Nile Delta. The list might be much extended, for it was the period of the great self-willed city-states in Europe, and Amalfi, Pisans, Genoese, Venetians, and Marseillais, who had quarters in all the bigger cities, owned villages, and had trading rights, would, in all probability, have submitted to any of the above designations, only under pressure. Besides all these, Norsemen, Danes, Frisians, Tartars, Jews, Arabs, Russians, Nubians, and Samaritans, can be safely added to the greatest human agglomeration drawn together in one small area of the globe."2
    Greeks fled the Muslim rule in Greece, and landed in Palestine. By the mid-seventeenth century, the Greeks lived everywhere in the Holy Land–constituting about twenty percent of the population-and their authority dominated the villages.3

    Between 1750 and 1766 Jaffa had been rebuilt, and had some five hundred houses. Turks, Arabs, Greeks and Armenians and a solitary Latin monk lived there, to attend to the wants of the thousands of pilgrims who had to be temporarily housed in the port before proceeding to Jerusalem.4
    "In some cases villages [in Palestine] are populated wholly by settlers from other portions of the Turkish Empire within the nineteenth century. There are villages of Bosnians, Druzes, Circassians and Egyptians," one historian has reported. 5
    Another source, the Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1911 edition (before the "more chauvinist Arab history" began to prevail with the encouragement of the British), finds the "population" of Palestine composed of so "widely differing" a group of "inhabitants" — whose "ethnological affinities" create "early in the 20th century a list of no less than fifty languages" (see below) — that "it is therefore no easy task to write concisely … on the ethnology of Palestine." In addition to the "Assyrian, Persian and Roman" elements of ancient times, "the short-lived Egyptian government introduced into the population an element from that country which still persists in the villages."

    . . . There are very large contingents from the Mediterranean countries, especially Armenia, Greece and Italy . . . Turkoman settlements … a number of Persians and a fairly large Afghan colony . . . Motawila … long settled immigrants from Persia … tribes of Kurds … German "Templar" colonies … a Bosnian colony … and the Circassian settlements placed in certain centres … by the Turkish government in order to keep a restraint on the Bedouin … a large Algerian element in the population … still maintain(s) [while] the Sudanese have been reduced in numbers since the beginning of the 20th century.
    In the late eighteenth century, 3,000 Albanians recruited by Russians were settled in Acre. The Encyclopaedia Britannica finds "most interesting all the non-Arab communities in the country . . . the Samaritan sect in Nablus (Shechem); a gradually disappearing body" once "settled by the Assyrians to occupy the land left waste by the captivity of the Kingdom of Israel."6
    The disparate peoples recently assumed and purported to be "settled Arab indigenes, for a thousand years" were in fact a "heterogeneous" community 7 With no "Palestinian" identity, and according to an official British historical analysis in 1920, no Arab identity either: "The people west of the Jordan are not Arabs, but only Arabic-speaking. The bulk of the population are fellahin…. In the Gaza district they are mostly of Egyptian origin; elsewhere they are of the most mixed race." … FACT …..Israel was there way before Palestine and FACT they have no proof at the site of the temple because they are not ALLOWED access to dig for artifacts. Due to Islamic occupation and they built their dome over the original site of the temple.

  17. another FACT your so called insistence that the holocaust did not happen. My family participated in the clean up of dead bodies that were the result of the Nazi eradication of jews. Not only Jews but others were killed too, Polish and anyone that did not fit the blonde haired blue eyed profile. So little girl you need to quit drinking the coolaide of the liars that are trying to cover up history. The year they tried to take the holocaust out of the history books so they did not offend mulsims with in a week a mass gave was found while digging to install gas lines.
