The Arab rabble is getting more and more desperate to prove that they have some kind of connection to the land of Israel. “ROFL” stands for ‘roll on the floor laughing’. Google it, if you don’t know who the Â biblical Jebusites, Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites were.
Reality is thatÂ Â villages [in the part of Israel the enemedia calls 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…..
From the Elder of Ziyon:
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich stands by his support for a Palestinian state, his spokesman said Saturday, despite his comment about an “invented Palestinian people” that has drawn fire from leaders in the West Bank.FromÂ CNN:
Gingrich made the comments in an interview that aired Friday with The Jewish Channel, a U.S. cable channel.
“I believe that the Jewish people have the right to have a state,” Gingrich said in the interview. “Remember, there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we’ve had an invented Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs, who are historically part of the Arab community.”

A photograph depicting the chairman of an organization dedicated to bolstering Jewish presence in Jerusalem running over two Palestinian children who were hurling stones at him was chosen as the best photograph at the “Local Testimony” 2011 exhibition.

He added, “And they had a chance to go many places and for a variety of political reasons, we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s. I think it’s tragic.”…
Fatah Revolutionary Council member Dimitri Diliani said Gingrich’s remarks reflect “the ignorant, provocative, and racist nature of Mr. Gingrich,” according to WAFA.
“The Palestinian people descended from the Canaanite tribe of the JebusitesÂ that inhabited the ancient site of Jerusalem as early as 3200 B.C.E.,” Diliani said. The “Gingrich remarks are ignorant of the basic historical facts of the Middle East.”
This is too good.
The only confirmed mention of the historic Jebusites is in the Hebrew Bible. That’s the only source that says that the Jebusites lived around Jerusalem. This exact same sourceÂ saysÂ that one of their leaders, Araunah, offered to give the Temple Mount to King David; David insisted that he pay for it, and he did Â – for the amount of fifty silver shekels.
So if you believe that the Palestinian Arabs are actually Jebusites, you must believe that they sold the Temple Mount to the Jews in a legal transaction.
(Since such a sale to a Jew would get Araunah the death penalty today, perhaps the Palestinians should atone for their sin!)
There is another problem, though.
The Constitution of Palestine refers numerous times to the “Arab PalestinianÂ people” and that “Palestine is part of the large Arab World, and theÂ Palestinian people are part of the Arab Nation.” TheÂ PLO CharterÂ similarly states “Palestine is the homeland of theÂ Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of theÂ Arab homeland, and the Palestinian people areÂ an integral part of the Arab nation.”
ButÂ Jebusites were not Arabs. They were not even Semites! No self-respecting Jebusite (if any had still existed) would identify with the Arab hordes who overran his homeland in the seventh century. He would probably want to behead the infidel invaders.
Is the constitution and charter wrong? When they call themselves Arab, are they all lying?
Perhaps “Palestine” should quit the Arab League and re-assert its nebulous Jebusite ancestry.
If it isn’t obvious enough already, note how Diliani chooses the Jebusites, not the Hittites or Amorites or other residents of Canaan, to be their ancestors – choosing the one tribe that is associated with Jerusalem.
A real people knows their own history; an invented people will invent their history – and change it whenever it is convenient for them. And since Jerusalem has only become important to the Arab residents of Palestine inÂ the past hundred years, it is convenient to choose specifically that tribe that lived there to be their invented ancestors today.
In other words, Diliani’s absurd assertion is actually proof for Gingrich’s claims.

Yesterday, Egyptian security forces in the Sinai seized a cache ofÂ bombsÂ that were on their way to Hamas in Gaza.
No doubt they were the peaceful types of bombs, though.
