Palestine: Time to Tell the Truth

What land are Palestinian Arabs talking about when they speak of ‘occupation’?

What land are they talking about when they say they want to live in peace on the land of their fathers?

Do you understand them to mean the West Bank and Gaza? Do you believe they have rights to that land, and that Israel has taken it from them?

The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) was formed in 1964 for the purpose of “liberating occupied Palestine”. It is still the overarching representative authority of  those Arabs who call themselves Palestinians . Its original 1964 charter was, until the end of August 2014, available for all to see on the United Nations website, by simply typing PLO Charter into your browser. Now you will see an updated version that has had a few changes made to it, but still contains statements that support the point I am making here.

Article 24 in the original 1964 version of the PLO Charter stated: “This Organization does not exercise any regional sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, on the Gaza Strip or the Himmah Area.”

The  recently revised version states:

“This Organization does not exercise any territorial sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, on the Gaza Strip or in the Himmah Area. Its activities will be on the national popular level in the liberational, organizational, political and financial fields.”

Yes that’s right! The land they are telling the world belongs to them, and is under Israeli occupation, was not the land they were talking about when they originally made that claim back in 1964. And the revised wording still implies the PLO’s recognition of the West Bank as sovereign territory of Jordan, and that Gaza belongs to Egypt. What they were in fact claiming back  in 1964, and still claim today, is the land that was legally given to Israel by the United Nations.
It wasn’t until after the 1967 Arab/Israeli war, when Egypt, Jordan, Syria etc, with the help of Palestinian Arabs, attacked Israel, in an attempted war of annihilation. Israel won that war, liberating land in Gaza from Egypt, and the West Bank from Jordan, and the Golan from Syria.
Taking land from the aggressor in time of war is legal under international law.
Following Jordan’s loss of the West Bank and Egypt’s loss of Gaza during that Six Day War in 1967, article 24 was suddenly forgotten, and the new PLO land claim was born. That is, the land they tell the world they are after.
The bogus nature of their claim – and indeed the invention of the Palestinians in 1964 was underscored when the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Zuhair Mohsen told the Dutch newspaper Trouw in 1977:

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism.

“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

Total rejection of international law by the Palestinians was also part and parcel of this invented nation – since the League of Nations in 1922 and the United Nations in 1946 had already recognized the legitimate right of the Jewish people to reconstitute the Jewish National Home in Palestine whilst the United Nations had admitted Israel as a member on 11 May 1949.

Article 17 of the 1964 Charter expressed this view in the following manner:

The Partitioning of Palestine in 1947 and the establishment of Israel are illegal and false regardless of the loss of time, because they were contrary to the wish of the Palestinian people and their natural right to their homeland, and in violation of the basic principles embodied in the charter of the United Nations, foremost among which is the right to self-determination.

By 1968 Article 17 had been excised and replaced by Article 20 which declared:

The Balfour Declaration, the Mandate for Palestine, and everything that has been based upon them, are deemed null and void. Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.

So where are the borders of Palestine?
The name ‘Palestine’ is not an Arab name at all. It was given to the land by the Roman emperor Hadrian (That’s right! The one who built the wall between Scotland and England) after he ethnically cleansed most of the indigenous inhabitants from the land. And those indigenous inhabitants were Jews. If you look back before Israel’s re-birth as a nation in 1948, you will find the name Palestine was synonymous with Jews. A Palestinian Arab nation did not exist! There was never any Palestinian state. The land was classed as a province of Syria under Ottoman Turkish occupation for 400 years prior to British liberation in 1917.

The 1921 League of Nations mandate for a Jewish homeland, points out the context in which Israel came into existence in 1948, and “Palestinian” did not become a common term until after 1977.

This propaganda war has been successfully waged by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)  since its creation by the KGB in 1964.

Ion Mihai Pacepa, former acting chief of Communist Romania’s espionage service in an interview with Front Page Magazine on 1 March 2004 spilt the beans on the PLO and its connection to the Soviet regime when he said:

The PLO was dreamt up by the KGB, which had a penchant for “liberation” organizations. There was the National Liberation Army of Bolivia, created by the KGB in 1964 with help from Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Then there was the National Liberation Army of Colombia, created by the KGB in 1965 with help from Fidel Castro, which was soon deeply involved in kidnappings, hijackings, bombings and guerrilla warfare. In later years the KGB also created the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which carried out numerous bombing attacks on the “Palestinian territories” occupied by Israel, and the “Secret Army for Liberation of Armenia,” created by the KGB in 1975, which organized numerous bombing attacks against US airline offices in Western Europe.

In 1964 the first PLO Council, consisting of 422 Palestinian representatives handpicked by the KGB, approved the Palestinian National Charter—a document that had been drafted in Moscow.

The language used in the 1964 version of the PLO Charter was slick –  designed to establish that “Palestine belongs to the Palestinians”. Who could possibly disagree with that motherhood statement – especially if it was repeated ad nauseum?
The problem was that the Charter’s definition of “Palestinians” included only the Arab residents of former Palestine and a limited number of Jews.
Article 6. The Palestinians are those Arab citizens who were living normally in Palestine up to 1947, whether they remained or were expelled. Every child who was born to a Palestinian parent after this date whether in Palestine or outside is a Palestinian.
Article 7. Jews of Palestinian origin are considered Palestinians if they are willing to live peacefully and loyally in Palestine. (Yeah! Like those who were massacred in Hebron 1929)
The PLO has seen its propaganda campaign succeed to a stage where “Palestine” has been admitted as a member “state” of UNESCO in apparent contravention of the UNESCO Constitution, the Montevideo Convention and customary international law..
