“Palestine belongs to its Arab residents, not to the Jewish occupiers.”

Arab Member of Knesset Rewriting History:

“Palestine belongs to its Arab residents, not to the Jewish occupiers.”

(IsraelNN.com) Israeli Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List/Ram Ta’al) attacked the State of Israel in a fiery editorial published in the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Quds on Sunday.

Mr. Tibi,

Political rights to self-determination as a polity for Arabs were guaranteed by the League of Nations in four Mandates – in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and later, Trans-Jordan. Palestine has been recognized as the Jewish national home by all 51 member countries – the entire League of Nations – which unanimously declared on July 24, 1922:
“Recognition Has Been Given to the Historical Connection of the Jewish People with Palestine and to the Grounds for Reconstituting their National Home in that Country.”

Article 6 of the “Mandate for Palestine” clearly states:
“The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced [as in your case Mr. Tibi, since your civil and religious rights are protected as an Israeli Arab inhabitant in the land of Israel], shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.”

The “Mandate for Palestine,” a historical League of Nations document laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, a 10,000-square-mile area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law and valid to this day.

And since you, Mr. Tibi, cite Martin Luther King, Jr., and explicitly attack Zionism, it would be worthwhile to cite Reverend King in a 1968 appearance at Harvard University, where he said: “When people criticize Zionists they mean Jews. You are talking antisemitism.”

Mr. Tibi, you have 21 Arab countries to choose from. The Jews have one homeland – Israel – and they do not plan on giving it up.

  1. How many times do we need to read this revisionist “history”?

    Trouble is that the younger generation are not taught history and have a lot of lefty teachers who muddy the waters.

    Bottom line:
    Abraham, Moses, Jesus, then Mohammed. So who was there first? Who has always had an uninterrupted presence in the Holy land?

    And who lost more territory after the 6-Day War and the Yom Kippur War?

    But of course we know that muslims never do anything wrong and cannot stand to acknowledge any defeat.

    Maybe the Romans and the Christians could lay a claim to it,lol?

    Maybe the UN should have enforced its partition after WW2?

    As for the MLK quote: yes, I think it is a clever ploy to avoid being called an anti-semite. But that’s what they really mean, unless of course arab muslims see themselves as semites.

  2. Actually Gramfan, the lizards and snakes have been longer in palestine than any other form of animal life. But we can let the Jews have it just to stick it to the peaceful ones and because they have such a wide variety of cesspoolian nations to choose from.

    Sorry losers, your asses were whipped in several wars-that’s why there’s an Israel. If anything, you ingrates shoukl be grateful those awful Zionists didn’t throw all your sorry asses out years ago or do even worse things to you. Get over it.


    as I have said before: your comments are cool and succinct, and happily all over the ‘blogs that really count!

  4. I sent Tibi an e-mail (google: Knesset and you can easily find the e-mail addresses of al MK’s. Told him to get out of my country! That he belongs to a people of child abusers!
