Over and over again we hear the erroneous claim that Israel was established because of the Holocaust. This myth is causing us incalculable damage because it implies that Israel has no right to exist other than as a guilt-offering, and one that came at the expense of another “people” with supposedly equal rights to the land. In fact, it appears that the awareness of Jewish claims to the land is what caused the Holocaust.
Even in otherwise pro-Israeli materials, we are told that the modern State of Israel was established in 1947. It was not! Contemporary international recognition of the Jewish indigenous rights to our land – land that lay within the borders of the British Mandate of Palestine — was already formalized in 1917, then reinforced in 1920 and again in 1922.
Horrified by increasing waves of Jewish immigration from Europe to the Palestinian Mandate, that began long before World War II, the Arabs saw an opportunity to ebb the tide when the Jew-hating Hitler rose to power. According to anthropologist and historian Francisco Gil-White, the Germans had only intended to transfer Jews from their country until Hajj Amin al-Huseini, founder of the “Palestinian” movement and mentor to Yassir Arafat, paid a visit to Hitler and suggested he exterminate them instead. If this is true, then it means that the primary architect of The Final Solution was al-Huseini and Hitler was his all-to-enthusiastic partner-in-crime.
Therefore, the next time you hear someone say that Israel was “born out of the Holocaust” remind him or her that the Holocaust was more likely caused to large extent because the Arabs saw us Jews as vermin that had to be stamped out wherever we were/are, not only in the Middle East, but everywhere. The Holocaust appears to have been the Arab attempt to keep the modern State of Israel from being, aided and abetted by the Nazis. Don’t let anyone twist history around anymore.
