Too funny when an Arab tells the truth:
I wonder how many of you remember Azmi Bishara, the former Knesset member who walked into the Israeli embassy in Cairo in April 2007 andresigned from the KnessetÂ after he got word that he was about to beindicted for treasonÂ for helping Hezbullah aim rockets during the 2006 Second Lebanon War. Bishara has not come back to Israel since.
Here’s an interview with Bishara (in Hebrew) from Israel’s Channel 2 television that took place approximately ten years ago. A fuller translation than what you are about to see will follow the interview (from Carl in J’lem)
And here’s a more complete translation than what you saw on the screen:
In an Interview with Yaron London (Israel’s Channel 2, recorded about a decade ago), Bashara said:
“I don’t think there is a Palestinian nation. I think there is an Arab nation, I think that this (the term “Palestinian nation”) is a colonial invention. Palestine, up to the end of the 19th century was southern Syria.
Yes folks, I keep telling you, there’s no such thing as ‘Palestine’ or a ‘Palestinian.’ Even the Arabs themselves occasionally acknowledge that truth when their guard is down. Here’s another example.
- The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of aPalestinian stateÂ is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state ofÂ IsraelÂ for ourÂ ArabÂ 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 opposeÂ Zionism.
- For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims toÂ HaifaÂ andÂ Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa,Â Beer-ShevaandÂ Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.
So why does everyone expect Israel to cut out half of its guts to create a real state for an imaginary people? Why does everyone expect Israel to endanger its own security to give a state to a people that does not exist?

Hugh Fitzgerald answers a Muslim poster on Jihad Watch:
Â What I don’t understand is WHY the Jew wants to live in the middle of us? Why can’t you carve up America…have a 52nd state and give it to them. SURELY, that would solve this damn problem once and for all.
“…that would solve this damn problem once and for all.”Â
The suggestion is made that Israel should disappear because then the “damn problem” would be solved “for once and for all.” Would it? Would Muslmis no longer feel they need kill Buddhists in southern Thailand, Hindus in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Kashmir, Christians in parts of Indonesia, southern Sudan, southern Nigeria (that “Jihad” that Colonel Ojukwu, head of the Biafran forces, denounced inthe Ahiara Declaration?), persecute and kill Copts in Egypt, Assyrians and Chaldeans in Iraq, Maronites (by the PLO, as in the forgotten massacre at Damur) in Lebanon, and of coure, constant demands made for changes in the legal and political institutions of the Western world, and demands for a dhimmi-like attitude of submission to Muslims at the U.N. and the E.U. and, if the O.I.C. has its way an end to all examination and critical inquiry into the nature of Islam by non-Muslmis everywhere, and much more in that dangerous and deadly — for all non-Muslims – vein, if the Jews of Israel are no longer permitted to have a tiny, nearly impersecptible state of their own, in order to satisfy Arab and Muslim greed and denial of rights to all non-Muslims? Would Israel’s disappearance “satisfy” Arabs and Muslims, or would it merely whet their appetitte for more?Â
And does Islam teach Muslims they are entitled only to this strip of land,or that, or does it tell them that the entire world must be dominated by Islam, that Muslims must remove every barrier, every obstacle (the American Constitution, especially the First Amendment, constitutes such an obstacle) to the spread, and tjhen the dominance, of Islam?Â
You know the answer. And so do more and more non-Muslims, waking up to, finding out about, what Islam — Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira — inculcate, and what is codified and and embodied in the Shari’a. And the more who become well-informed, the more they become justifiably alarmed about those who claim to be adherents — by calling themselves Muslims, even if they also claim that shape-shifting and vague, unsatisfying adjective “moderate: — of that Total Belief-System known as Islam.
