Don't Confuse Me with Facts!
by Donna Wasson 3/25/2012 / World Affairs
Ahhh. So many Arabs, so little time Almost every day I shake my head in amazement at the vitriolic hatred directed towards the tiny country of Israel, seemingly by the entire world. I never thought I would see a time when America would turn her back on our only ally amidst the insanity that is the Middle East.
But the most egregious culprit that stuns me to silence (and that ain't easy to do!) is the mainstream church. Yeah, I've written about this before but I just keep running across more and more information that only goes to prove this hatred of Israel is still a long running satanic conspiracy. The enemy isn't even trying to hide his preposterous tactics anymore! They're out in the open for all to see, unless you decide to turn a blind eye.
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, coined the quintessential model of widespread mental manipulation by this saying: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." Apparently, Yasir Arafat, former Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and former President of the Palestine Authority, subscribed to this theory because he utilized it to a breathtaking level of perfection and it's still in use today.
Arafat, God not rest his soul, was dedicated to the armed struggle against Israel to free Palestine for the Palestinians. He instigated guerrilla attacks on the tiny country, even encouraging violence against innocent civilians. Then in 1988, he changed tactics, clothing himself in a vesture of pseudo cooperation.
In a speech at a special United Nations session in Geneva, Switzerland, he declared that the PLO renounced terrorism (but he had his fingers crossed!) and supported "the right of all parties concerned in the Middle East conflict to live in peace and security, including the state of Palestine, Israel and other neighbors."
When this spewage issued from his lying lips, the peace process began. The negotiations included Arafat, Shimon Perez, Foreign Minister of Israel and Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel and led to the Oslo Accords in 1993. Both gentlemen, as well as Arafat, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994, which, truth be told really doesn't say much. I mean, an admitted terrorist. Given the Nobel Peace Prize! HAHAHA!!! It was a joke, right?? Unfortunately, not.
After all, Obama was awarded the prize in 2009. The man was elected to the US Senate in January 2005 and started his Presidential campaign in 2007. He left his Senate seat in 2008 a few months before he was sworn in as President of the United States in January 2008. The Nobel Prize Committee awarded him this prize "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." The committee attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons. What 'efforts'? What 'work'??
I won't dwell on the fact that this most destructive man, America's messiah, never held a private sector job in his whole life or that the ink on his Presidential swearing in certificate hadn't even dried when he was given this prize for having a 'vision.' He had yet to accomplish even one thing but, what the heck. He had a 'vision!'
This tells me that if you save up your Post cereal box-tops and mail them in to Post's headquarters with a SASE you too, can get your very own Nobel Peace Prize. After all, they hand them out to terrorist killers and narcissistic, lying windbags, why not us?
Back to the Palestinian propaganda machine. Rewriting the history of the Land of Israel in order to deny Israel's right to exist is key to PA policy and was instigated by, you guessed it, Mr. Arafat (God not rest his soul.) Even before the PA Terror Campaign, or the Intifada of 2000-2005, the desperate attempt to erase the Jewish nation's 3000 year old history in the land and replace it with fabricated 'ancient' Palestinian, Muslim and Arab histories was well under way.
This is a political strategy whose goal is to deny Israel's right to the land of their Fathers. It's accomplished by distorting, downplaying or denying ancient Jewish history, completely ignoring both archeology and historical documentation as well as refuting the Holocaust, along with other elements of Jewish history.
They also hide from the Palestinian people the fact that Jesus was a Jew who lived in Judea/Israel. They repeatedly state that He was a Palestinian who preached Islam, which also denies the history and legitimacy of Christianity. How Christ was able to preach Islam when He lived about 700 years before Muhammad received his "revelation" is entirely beside the point!
Some of their other delusional claims are that Zionism was Europe's plot to get rid of the Jews. They say Balfour supported a Jewish homeland to get the Jews out of Europe and it was a colonialist project with the aim of ruling the land and stealing Arab treasures as well as a way to obtain the genocidal weapons the Jews invented. Well, at least they put their imaginations to good use
They demonize Jews to the world, accusing them of having been evil and destructive throughout history which gives non-Jews seemingly justifiable cause to hate, persecute and try to expel them. The PA then makes up fairy-tale accounts of 'Palestinian' history in the region, thus negating Israel's claim to the land. They even turn a blind eye to the existence of thousands of ancient coins inscribed with Hebrew language, Jewish texts and Bullas (seals) which carry Biblical names that have been found in the area.
This would be hysterically funny, like some lame Saturday Night Live skit, were it not so deadly serious. Palestinian Media Watch is "an Israeli research institute that monitors the PA's messages to the general public and reports its findings to the US Congress as well as the Parliaments of numerous countries in order to give the world a precise understanding of the realities of the PA."
According to one of their news stories in March 2012, a Judean Shekel coin from the year 66 A.D. was sold at an auction in New York for 1.1 million. The Hebrew words, "Shekel of Israel 66 A.D" are printed on the front and "Jerusalem the holy" appears on the back. The year 66 A.D. is significant because it was the first year of the Jewish rebellion that took place in the land of Judea against the Romans. This revolt lasted from 66-70 A.D. when the Romans invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the 2nd Jewish Temple, located on the Temple Mount, just as Jesus had predicted would happen.
"The Romans changed the name of Judea to "Palestine" 65 years later in the year 135 A.D., after the Bar Kochba Rebellion, NOT because of the existence of a local population that called themselves "Palestinians", but in an attempt to distance Jews from their own land, as punishment for the Jewish rebellion."
These events are further backed up by the find of another coin, this one Roman, which was minted after the Roman's victory and was inscribed "Judea Capta", meaning "the land of Judea is captured." These Roman coins are not that much of a rarity around Jerusalem. This auction caught the PA with its pants down. Oh my! Now there is even more irrefutable, solid evidence the Jews occupied that land thousands of years ago! What to do?? How do they spin evidence one can hold in one's hand?
You guessed it! The official Palestinian Authority Daily (newspaper) acknowledged the auction but claimed the coin sold was an "ancient Palestinian coin and a part of the Palestinian cultural tradition." Dudes. Really. The thing has HEBREW writing on it and a date of 66 A.D. ~~~ Awkward ! ~~~~
The PA categorizes any archeological evidence of Israel's ancient past in the land as a "political agenda." Yeah, that's the ticket! The PA issued the following statement. "The announcement that the Shoshana collection-including Palestinian coins which were almost certainly stolen and smuggled overseas from Palestine-is up for auction, is an opportunity for Jewish and Western scholars to use the Jewish revolt against the Romans in Palestine (actually it was Judea) for a political agenda and to connect this local revolt with the establishment of the Israeli occupation state in the 20th century. Usually, Palestinians and Arabs show no interest in antiquities from this period; (I bet they don't!) they are influenced by the Israeli and Zionist propaganda, despite the fact that they (the antiquities) are part of the Palestinian cultural heritage."
You folks might want to back up here. I thought you guys said Israel never lived in that land! That it was always Palestine. By acknowledging the Jewish revolt in 66 A.D., a fact documented by numerous historians of that day, aren't you kind of shooting yourselves in the Keffiyeh? Not that it would be a bad idea, but still!
Are the Palestinian people really so obtuse and hardheaded that they deliberately ignore solid evidence that Israel lived in that land at least 2000-3000+ years ago? Evidence that the whole world knows about?? Are you actually filled with such irrational, illogical hatred for the Jews that you deny what is in front of your eyes and teach your children blatant lies?
You can deny the truth all you want, but anyone operating on more than basic brain stem function can see what a crock of alimentary waste your revisionist history is! Apparently the American mainstream church's cerebral centers of higher reasoning are not operational.
Here, let me help you. Put down your rocket launchers and listen up. Before the Israeli patriarch Moses died, he named Joshua to take his place and lead the children of Israel into Canaan, or the Promised Land. As Jehovah (NOT Allah) commanded, he entered the land in approximately 1350 B.C., and began to conquer the various peoples living there. King David captured Jerusalem from the Jebusites in approximately 1000 B.C. and the city has been known by the Jews as, ' The City of David' ever since. Actually, it still is.
After King David's death his son, King Solomon, built the 1st Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount but it was destroyed when the city was captured by the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar in 596 B.C. After several decades in Babylonian captivity, and after the Archaemenid conquest of Babylonia, Cyrus II of Persia granted the Jews permission to rebuild the Temple and it was completed in 516 B.C. under the rule of Darius the Great.
THAT, my dear Palestinians, is the true history of the land and is corroborated by numerous historians as well as a plethora of archaeological evidence. Gee, that kind of blows it for you, doesn't it? I guess those nasty 'ol Jews were telling the truth after all! Now what? You need to find a new place to live!
Why don't you ask your Arab brothers for some land to make a Palestinian state on? After all, they have thousands of miles to spare! Aren't you weary of being the stooges for the entire Middle East? Why aren't you being taken in and provided for by your own people? Why do you allow yourselves and your children to be used and subordinated by fellow Arabs?
Why do you let unwarranted hatred fester in your hearts for a people who have done absolutely nothing but bend over backwards to accommodate you, when the ones you should be fighting are your neighboring brothers? Wake up, fools! You could have had your own 'State' 50-60 years ago! Look at the time and the lives of your children you've wasted in hatred!
What? Oh yeah. I won't confuse you with facts. The PA has sold you a story and you're sticking with it, believing it no matter what evidence is right in front of your eyes. I guess I can understand, though. After all, as the old saying goes, if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, eventually people will come to believe it. Right? Apparently so.
