(This is a re-post of a blog I wrote back in 2007 around the time of the Annapolis peace talks. However, I believe it is still pertinent today, and I talked about this on my most recent radio show.)
This is where I live, this is where my house is, this is where my children were born and raised. This is where my ancestors lived. This is the region that G-d gave to the 12 tribes of Israel. They want to cut our heart out, wrest Jerusalem from us, and make it into a Palestinian state. Dig down in the earth here, you will find JEWISH, not Arab artifacts. This is where Jewish Kings ruled. There were never any 'Palestinian' kings, and a country of 'Palestine' never existed. Palestine was the Jewish Homeland. My father was a 'Palestinian'. Most Arabs came in to this 'Jewish' region looking for work as more and more Jews came home and joined their brothers who were here for centuries. These Arabs would be insulted if they were called, 'Palestinians' which meant JEW. They were either Egyptians, or southern Syrians.There was never even an Arab Palestinian currency in all these centuries. The REGION known as Palestine was part of the Ottoman Empire (1299 to 1922) and therefore used TURKISH currency. When the British came in after WWI, they made the Land of Israel the ‘British Mandate of Palestine’, and the Egyptian pound was used until 1927. Egyptians swarmed into Israel for jobs, as the Arabs living in Gaza do today, crossing into Israel where they earn higher wages.
Though my father is not in this photo, here is a picture of Palestinian Jewish Parachutists in World War II.
The British then made what is called, the Palestinian pound, which was of course equal in value to the British pound sterling.
Did you skip over reading all those peace plans and summits? No fair. Read them each, and concentrate on them. We bled and paid a high price for each one of those 'solutions for peace'.
The corrupt Palestinian Authority has forfeited its right to exist. It has encouraged, born, fostered, and sponsored terrorism. It has violated it's commitments it made in every peace treaty signed, which was to stop their violence and terror. We should mete out justice to those Arab terrorists and leaders who have spilled our people’s blood, to those Arab leaders who hold our soldiers captive, and to all the Arab and Moslem nations who conspire against us with threats of annihilation.
We should also bring to justice any of our own leaders (whom I shall not name here) who have become corrupted, accepted bribes, armed our enemies, and released convicted terrorists. To these politicians who have sold themselves out, well, as an acquaintance of mine says, “They give ‘working girls’ a bad name. The Knesset today is the biggest brothel in Israel.”
