  • Dear Mona,

    I sent you a reply 3 days ago (25-2-07), but did not receive an answer.

    Just checking if you received it... communications seem difficult with Gaza.

    from Holland with love,

  • We passed by the sites of the Palestinian villages and towns, that used to be there once upon a time but were ruined and destroyed, and their original inhabitants were forced to leave and made refugees.

    This is not what did happen , Mona.
    If you look closely at the historical record you will find out that after the partition of palestine was declared in november 1947 the palestinians and arab countries did not acept it.

    As you can read in the palestine post , beginning of december 1947 , the arab hight commitee declared a general strike and start mobilizing for war.

    (Actually jews and arabs in palestine had been clashing since the 20s).

    But arabs did not accept the partition.

    In may 1948 palestine was invaded by the arab armies .

    Unlike you say palestinian inhabitants were not just forced to leave.
    1 - For many years a war had been going on between jews and arab muslims.
    (there were arab jewish clashes in 1929 and 1936)

    2 In 1947 Since there were 2 people in palestine Palestine was divided.
    3 Palestinian arabs did not accept the creation of Israel.
    4 War started

    5 Many ( but not all) original arab inhabitants were forced to leave and made refugees.

    You wrote the original inhabitants of palestine were forced out but you forgot to say that the arabs did not accept an home for the jews in palestine.

    Palestinian leadership was responsible for war.

    There is more .

    Who was one of the palestinian leaders ?

    One of the palestinian leaders in 1947 was
    Haj Amin al-Husseini.
    He was a friend of Adolf Hitler.

    In europe hitler had exterminated 6 million jews.

    Would you accept to be part of a state in wich one of the leaders was a friend of someone who had exterminated your wholle family ?

    Of course not.
    You would not accept it.
    You would fight that person.
    That is exactly what the jews did.

    6 million jews had been massacred in europe.

    They did not want to be a minority again in an Arab state.

    You can look yourself at the news bulletin , december 1947,

    Click here and open in new window to watch video

    Of course : Palestinians could say : It is not right the jews did create an alien state in muslim arab land.

    The only problem is that bcause they had no state jews were persecuted for 2000 years.

    "About ten thousand Jews were transported to Rome to be used as work hands to help build the Coliseum".
    in 1506 , 5 thousand civilian jews were dragged from their homes and butchered in portugal.

    90% of the jewish population of europe was exterminated ( Including little babies that were thrown into de gas chambers full of people).

    Palestine was not a land without people as the zionist myth maintains but the jews were certainly a people withouth land , an home of their own.

    Jews were persecuted for 2000 years and they certainly deserved an home( As everyone else).

    I completely understand palestinians will not agree with me and such words are hard to hear for a palestinian. But I am not running for palestinian presidency.

    I just say what I believe it is the truth.
    The creation of a jewish state in Palestine would have not been fair if the jews had a state of their own in europe or america.
    But it was not the case.
    Jews had no home and for 2000 years they had been persecuted and slaughered.

    The argument could go on and on...;

    Taking into account that jews were persecuted by the christians and not the muslims, muslims could say ( like amedinejad does ).
    " Ok . It is fair jews had a state. Europeans should create an home for the jews in european lands , not muslim lands ).

    Looking back one can say it would have been better to create a jewish home in german soil. But to do it the allies would have to resettle all 600 000 jews that already lived in palestine in 1946,47 and take them to europe).
