THE FACTS AND THE LIES
Palestinians are indigenous to the holy land : False
President Mahmoud Abbas often claims Palestinians are indigenous to the holy land. They are the offspring of the Canaanites or the Philistines. Groups that are long since gone. This has no basis in genetic or archeological facts. The Palestinians are Arabs that lived in the holy land, no more no less. Historians, archeologist and biblical records show no people called Palestinians and their Koran itself affirms conclusively that the Israelites were there 3000 years ago before all Arabs . The Israelites lived in the lands of Israel, Judea and Samaria ever since. The name Palestine is of Roman Empire origin and named this way to punish the Israelites when they revolted under Roman rule.
Israel occupies Palestinian land: False
There is not and never has been Palestinian land. There never has been a Palestinian state or a separate language. Israel has offered to turn over most of the land captured from Jordan to them in exchange for peace but they have never accepted the offer.
Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine: False
Palestinian leaders claim Jerusalem as the capital of their state. This excludes 3000 years of Jewish history and its founding by King David in 1000BCE before the advent of Islam. Jerusalem is cited many times in the Jewish bible, never in the Koran. For most of Jewish history the majority of the inhabitants have been Jews.
Palestinians have a right of return to Israel: False
700,000 Arabs left Israel when the Arab armies attacked. Today 30,000 are still alive yet the Palestinians want the original group plus children, grandchildren and great grandchildren be given the right of return. Some of these people live in the disputed territory of Judea and Samaria and in other Arab lands like Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. The total of refugees to be returned is about 5.5 million. No other group of refugee in history has claimed such a right . With a peace deal some right of return with a sensible number may be given such a right .
Israel is an Apartheid State: False
Of all the lies I can verify how this is false. I have been in Israel 3 times. The Israeli Arabs vote and have nearly all the rights of the Israeli Jews. The Israeli government gives more money to Jewish towns than to Arab towns. This is changing. The Palestinians in the West Bank are self-governing and have increased in numbers dramatically in the past decades. Their movements in the west bank are limited only by security concerns of the Jewish state.
