Israel is Palestine

Prior to Arafat, the father of modern terrorism, stealing Palestinian from the Jewish people, no one referred to the future state of Palestine, now called Israel, as anything other than a Jewish state.

John Adams, the second president of the United States, was the first Zionist of the modern era.

In 1819, Mordecai Manuel Noah sent John Adams an early copy of his travel book, Travels in England, France Spain and the Barbary States.

In response to reading his travel book, Adams sent a letter wishing he had gone to Palestine with an army of Jewish fighters to reclaim the land that was stolen from them thousands of years ago.

“Farther I could find it in my heart to wish that you had been at the head of a hundred thousand Israelites,” Adams wrote. “And marching with them into Judea and making a conquest of that country and restoring your nation to the dominion of it. For I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation.”

Those places he wished to be retaken by Israelites were all in Palestine.

That was 1819. The First Zionist Congress did not meet until 1897.

Zionism comes from Zion. Zion is an ancient Biblical name for Jerusalem, where Palestine stood.

In 1897, Theodore Herzl wrote of what transpired.

“At Basel I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today, l would be greeted by universal laughter. In five years perhaps, and certainly in fifty years, everyone will perceive it.”

He was off by a year.

In 1917, there was the Balfour Declaration, which guaranteed Palestine would become a Jewish state.

“His Majesty’s Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”

The letter is short and makes very clear what was intended. Palestine was to be a Jewish nation.

Had that agreement been kept, European Jews would have had somewhere to flee to. Their ancient home. The British dragged their feet, leading to the loss of 6 million Jewish people.

It would not be until1947 that the UN intervened. Rather than accept the entirety of the Balfour Agreement, they split Palestine.

United Nations Resolution 181, resolution passed by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in 1947 that called for the partition of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states.”

Israel and Jordan were created at the same time, with Jordan getting the larger portion of Palestine.

The Jewish people were robbed of much of their promised land. Rather than fight, they agreed. They were the only ones who did.

The rest of the world turned a blind eye to Arab states wanting to kill every Jew in their recently reacquired land.

They won and became a nation and had other wars while fighting terrorists.

Throughout out it all, any reference to Palestine was directed at the Israelis, not Jordanians. Or any other Arab who was not Israeli.

It was not until 1964 that the theft of Palestine from Jewish to Arab happened. That was the year Arafat created the terrorist organization called the PLO.

From that moment on, there has been a slow forgetting of the truth. Israel is Palestine.

Other than Jewish references, there has never been an Arab country called Palestine. Palestine was always seen as the Jewish homeland, even before the rebirth of Israel.

Factual history is on the side of Israel. Not those who call themselves Palestinian today.
