No other people have ever established a national homeland in the Land of Israel later re-named “Palestine” by the Romans in order to erase the name of Judea (and Israel), since the Jews were forced from it by the Romans 2,000 years ago!
In July 1922, after WWI, the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain with The Palestine Mandate, including the land east of the Jordan River, recognizing “the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine.”
A few months later, after the Great Britain and France made a deal with the Hashemite Kingdom and Egypt, the Eastern side of the Palestinian Mandate: The trans-Jordan (77% of the Palestinian Mandate) was given to the son of Sharif Hussein ibn Ali, Hashemite ruler of Mecca, after the Hashemites were ousted to trans-Jordan by the Saudi dynasty from Saudi Arabia ; the Golan Heights (5% of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French controlled Syrian Mandate, and the Sinai was given to Egypt.
The 1947 UN Resolution 181 partition plan was to divide the remaining 18% of Palestine into six triangles with Jerusalem as an international city – a Jewish Palestinian State and the SECOND Arab Palestinian State. Jews, traumatized by the Holocaust, accepted this idiotic plan, but the Arabs rejected it, as their aim was and still is to take all of the Land of Israel from the Jews!
After the Jews won the war waged against it by seven Muslim states, which most international Anti-Semites anticipated would be a victorious completion of a “Final Solution”, on May 14, 1948 Jews finally declared their own State of Israel!
For quite a while, the Muslim/Arab world and other enemies of the Jews became incapacitated by the shock.
Only in 1964, the KGB created the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In the same year, the first PLO Council, handpicked by the KGB, approved the Palestinian National Charter!
From 1949-67, while Judea, Samaria, Gaza, and East Jerusalem were occupied by Jordan and Egypt, there was no attempt to give independence to the so-called Palestinians living there. Quite the opposite!
The 1967 Six-Day war and the 1973 Yom Kippur war have proven to the Soviets the futility of this front of the proxy war with the West! And Arabs began to look for new sponsors of their anti-Jewish complaints.
It did not take long for the Western countries and the UN to pick up an anti-Israel banner. After all, in addition to pampering their old Anti-Semitic feelings, support for the anti-Israel cause has provided them with a secure supply of oil! By the end of the 1980s, the idea of Israel-bashing had gained acceptability, and by the end of the 1990s became popular and respectable among the Western politicians and academics! With a little or no effort at all, blaming Israel for everything and ignoring the terrorism, violence, and problems instigated by the Palestinian Authority, have become the norm now.
Step by step, traditional Anti-Semites of Europe and the Muslim world, with the help of useful idiots in the multiple UN organizations, deliberately and methodically have been vilifying and delegitimizing Israel, in their attempt to discredit the legitimacy of the only Jewish state!
At the moment, there is a feeling that change is coming. Hopefully, it will be strong and permanent – only time will tell. But regardless of who is in charge of the White House or in control of the United Nations, the government of Israel must assort itself as a leader of the sovereign state! It must start working toward ending occupation of all Jewish land by the enemies, and bring the reunification of Eretz-Israel forward.
Israel must be ready to use the current violence and threat from Gaza, to remove the enemy population, which eagerly supports Hamas and participates in terror against the Jewish state, to Sinai, as the first step toward the reunification of Jewish land. If the the present government of Israel is not willing to do so, it should be voted out and replaced by true Zionist one!
