THE PALESTINE QUESTION

THE PALESTINIAN DILEMMAPALESTINE QUESTION

The Palestine Question is the most complex political question in the modern world. It all started in European Countries East and West, when the Jews living there among the Christian populations were unable to mix freely with the prevalent people, but stuck to themselves as a superior entity, and refused assimilation.

Many countries started to persecute them or make their lives in Europe unpleasant. We remember the image of the itinerant Jew.

In Spain, the Catholic Church became radicalized through political nationalism. Thousand were killed and both Arabs and Jews were kicked out of Spain.

The following true story shows that the Zionists forced their co-religionists against their will to cut themselves from any communications with the “Goyim”( gentile, non-Jew).

Musa el Alami was born in the old quarter of Jerusalem. Their next door neighbour was a Jewish family. Both families lived in peace among themselves with mutual help and respect for each other. The Jewish brother was contacted by the Zionists and forced to cut his relations with Musa and his family. He was beaten by the Zionists, and his family was forced to leave the area of old Jerusalem and relocated in Tel Aviv. No fraternization was allowed whatsoever with their Arab brethren. If this were not racism, what is it?

It was the same reason at the time of the Babylon Diaspora. The Jews, who had married foreign women, had to divorce them and leave them to their fate with their children in Babylon.                                                                                                                                           Esdras 10:10-14

The “Philistines” (came from the Aegean Islands and from Crete). They came on different waves of migrations, seeking lands to settle in, and remake their lives. As the people in any island grow in number, this forces some of its inhabitants to migrate.

They came at first to the Nile Delta, and were pushed eastwards by the Pharaohs soldiers to the Coast of Canaan where they established their city-states like Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron, Jaffa and Gerar. Then they intermarried with the Canaanites, the first nations of the Fertile Crescent, and who originally came from Arabia to seek water for their flocks of sheep, goats and camels.

The Philistines were in Palestine 600 years before Israel was born. First, the Philistines did not come as conquerors in a frontal assault, but rather in small numbers and in consecutive waves of immigration.  It was the Philistines who learned the Canaanite language, and adopted all customs of the Canaanites.

The Canaanites originated in Arabia, and they came to the Fertile Crescent in the quest of water, thousands of years before the birth of Abraham.

They acquired the Canaanite political system the “City State”, agriculture, industry; each town had its own king its own government and has to defend itself from its enemies by its own power without the help of neighboring towns. This type of government was also in Ancient Greece.

PALESTINE QUESTION.

When the Jews were captive in Babylon, they build a town on the shore of the Euphrates called Tel Aviv; 2,500 years later they built a town also called Tel Aviv on the coastal sand dunes of Jaffa. The reason for their coming into the Fertile Crescent was: “WATER”. Continue reading THE PALESTINE QUESTION
