'The greatest crime'?

What do you think was the greatest crime in human history? The Holocaust comes to mind. So do many of the pogroms in Europe starting with the crusades and continuing right up to the end of World War II. Of course, I'm being pretty parochial. So how about the Armenian genocide? The Sudanese war on non-Muslims? The Hutu's and Tutsi's of Rwanda?

'Palestinian Authority' television, run by our 'peace partner,' has decided that there's something worse - much worse - than all that. Would you believe the Balfour declaration?
Every year on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority leaders and official media issue harsh statements attacking it. According to the Palestinian narrative, Jews have no history in the land and therefore have no right to exist as a state. Consequently, Israel exists only because of the Balfour Declaration.

This year, the PA Ministry of Information and the Ministry of Culture organized a workshop for high school girls in Tulkarem in cooperation with the city's Education Administration. The girls wrote "letters of sorrow and pain to the Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II, and to the British Foreign Minister, William Hague, since it was the letter by that country's Foreign Minister Arthur James Balfour, which has caused the Palestinian people ongoing suffering," reported the official PA daily.

One girl wrote to Queen Elizabeth:
"The real reasons that caused Balfour to give his dark promise, first and foremost [the desire] to be rid of the Jews in Europe and to award them a prize for the genocidal weapons which they had invented, which helped Britain to annihilate more people."
PA leaders and official media have published claims on many occasions that the establishment of Israel was a European plot to get rid of the Jews in Europe because the Jews were a burden on European society. The Balfour Declaration is cited by many Palestinians as proof that Zionism was not a Jewish idea but a colonialist idea, and it was this idea that the Palestinian girl was expressing in her letter.
Let's go to the videotape.



Here's another one. Let's go to the videotape.

Despite the PA's claims in English to the international community that it recognizes Israel, the PA openly continues to indoctrinate its people with significant historical revision, to reject and deny Israel's right to exist.

The Pals are to stupid to know, the Balfour declaration had nothing to do with Israel being formed again in 48.
What saved Israel in 48 was its Army defeating the 5 invading Arab armies in 48.
The Brits helped the Arabs in the 48 war. British commander John Glubb was on of the Arabs top generals against Israel in the 48 war.

IN 1948, no Palestinian state was invaded or destroyed
to make way for the establishment of Israel. From biblical times, when this territory was the state of the Jews, to its control by the British army at the end of World War I, Palestine had never existed as a entity.
In 1948 if the Jews had lost the war, their territory would not have been handed over to the Palestinians. Rather, it would have been divided among the invading Arab forces, for the simple reason that none of the region's Arab regimes viewed the Palestinians as adistinct nation. The Arabs viewed the Palestinians are recent Arab immigrants from Syria and Egypt.

Zionism is not racism. Zionism is a political movement against Moslem racism.

The Jewish land mass of Arabia which 1/640 the size of the land mass of Arabia on which it sits, absorbed about 700,000 Jews from Arab countries is among the most significant yet little known injustices against humanity of the past century.

But this behavior is tolerated by Israel's hands-off policy towards the PA and its refusal, out of pragmatism, prudence, or fear, to assert Jewish rights and history of the holiest places in Judaism: the Western Wall, the Kotel, and the Temple Mount:

You forgot to mention the genocide of the Irish Catholics by the English.

Jesus was born in a land called Palestine. The Arab Palestinians have just as much right to the land as a group of Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe and the US.

Sean,

What genocide was that?

And by the way, Jesus was a Jew.

"Jesus was born in a land called Palestine"--sorry, that is just stupid. There was no Palestine until the fall of the Second Commonwealth and a Roman decision to insult Judea by renaming the country after the Philistines. Jesus, a Jew, was born in a land called Judea.

Try reading something about anything before bombarding us with these egregiously lame howlers.

How about the overwhelming majority of israeli citizens who came back to Eretz Yisrael by way of the Arab and Ottomon Middle East--they are called Sephardic.

Overlapping with the overwhelming majority of Jews in Israel who have regardless of their ancient ancestry (the Second Commonwealth) been born of Israeli mothers and daddies out of the womb in Israel?

Really, Sean, overall your spitball was insultingly dumb. It's like suddenly we are in a conversation with a goat or a talking chicken or a discarded shoe or a can opener or a used tire with no tread.

Go back to Occupying your parents spare bedroom.

Never said Jesus wasn't a Jew. And he was born in Judea, because there was no place called Israel. Got it.

Carl
Genocide is defined as "the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.

The genocide of the Irish by the British took place over hundreds of years. It is in school curriculum here in the US.

http://www.nj.gov/education/holocaust/curriculum/

If you are going to use the term "holocaust" you should specify which one you are talking about. That term was used to describe the destruction of the Irish before the events in Europe of the 1940's. Jews don't own the rights to the word.

"How about the overwhelming majority of israeli citizens who came back to Eretz Yisrael by way of the Arab and Ottomon Middle East--they are called Sephardic."

Oh Sparky, you don't know what you are talking about...

Even wikipedia knows you're wrong...

Today, Ashkenazi Jews constitute the largest group among Jews,[5] and among Israeli Jews as well.

Sean, you are a dolt and a moron. You changed your argument you overweening brat. Gone is the reference to Palestine, oopsy.

Do you know anything about Israeli history? No.

Judea was Jewish, the political equivalent of Israel under occupation--its name derived from the original Judean tribes. Ashkenazi Jews as Sephardic go back to the original Israeli commonswealths. Wikipedia? The majority of Israeli jews, which is what you began talking about, are Sephardic--and the overhwhelming majority native born, they were born in Israel, Sephardic and Ashkenazi or whatever in ethnicity--but by ethnicity wanker the Sephardic beat out Ashkenazi by about 50% to 47 percent.

Go away until you know something.

If you were right you wouldn't have to resort to name calling.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashkenazi_Jews#In_Israel

"In Israel

Today, Ashkenazi Jews constitute the largest group among Jews,[5] and among Israeli Jews as well"

This wikipedia article says differently. We have established wikipedia is not a reliable source. However even at a 50 to 47 split. It is hardly an overwhelming majority as you stated earlier. It is a slight majority.

If the Romans renamed it Palestine after the Philistines to insult the Judeans, that means the Philistines were already living there then. If the Jews left and the Philistines stayed, then don't the Palestinians have a claim?

Sean,

No. The 'Palestinians' are not the Phillistines. There is NO connection between them other than the closeness of the names.

The 'Palestinians' are a fiction invented by the Arab countries to better enable them to try to 'recover' what they lost in 1948 and 1967.

You wrote this...

"There was no Palestine until the fall of the Second Commonwealth and a Roman decision to insult Judea by renaming the country after the Philistines"

Not me. Maybe it wasn't to insult the Judeans maybe it was to recognize the people who stayed. By extension someone living in Palestine became a Palestinian. Much as you claim they Ashkenazi Jews born in Israel make them Israeli.

Now to this...
"The 'Palestinians' are a fiction invented by the Arab countries to better enable them to try to 'recover' what they lost in 1948 and 1967."

If as the Israelis like to say that Israel was a land without a people, then there was no one to "lose" the land in 1948.

What you are claiming is in direct opposition to what Dan Kelso is saying. He claims there was never an entity known as Palestine yet you are claiming there was. YOu Zionist need to get your propaganda straight.
