Why it’s wrong to say “the” Palestinians

“#13 – ‘The Palestinians:’ The United Nations’ 1947 partition resolution called Palestine’s Arabs and Jews ‘the two Palestinian peoples.’ Nothing is more self-delegitimizing and counter-productive to achieving peace based on Arab recognition of Jews’ right to be there, than that Jews should go around calling Palestinian Arabs “The Palestinians.” They have no distinguishing language, religion, or culture from neighboring Arabs, and have never been sovereign in Palestine, whereas the Jews, with a presence stretching back three millennia, have had three states there, all Jerusalem-based. Most Palestinian Arabs cannot trace their own lineage to the land back more than 4 generations.”

Ready to be mind-boggled? Thanks to the persistent laziness of the Democrat media and its sheep-herd mentality, various anti-Israel and, increasingly, anti-Semitic groups, the other twelve points probably will surprise you as well.

Illuminate yourself.

  1. Don’t care. I know which side I’m on already. Who the Palestinians are, where they come from, which sects of islam they espouse, none of that matters to me.

  2. Better the truth than a lie. Know thy enemy and all that.
