Middle East myths exposed


Middle East myths exposed

Peter Baum

In his book Myths of the Middle East, Arab essayist and historian writes..

​”There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians, another recent invention, Syrians, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one tenth of one percent of the landmass. But that’s too much for the Arabs. They want it it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today…No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make. It will never be enough ”.

Published in October 2000, we can only admire the intellect,  pragmatism and foresight of this elegant scribe . Written before Israel gave back Gaza his prophetic essay is validated by the actions of Israel’s Arab opponents. Enemies of Israel within the United Nations conveniently ignore truth and are content hiding their anti Jewish State rhetoric under the cowardice of supposed pro Palestinianism. Such support for Palestinians however does not include the following – the slaughter of Arab Palestinians by a combination of Jordanian and Pakistani troops commanded by General Zia Al- Haq who later became Prime Minister of Pakistan. The numbers killed have never been acknowledged but are estimated to be between five thousand and twenty seven thousand with at least one hundred thousand ethnically cleansed to Tunisia. These events occurred during and after ‘Black September’ 1970.

The mass murders , torture and imprisonment of Palestinians by Iraqi Government and Shia militias backed by both Iraq and Iran in the Palestinian areas of Iraq, such as Al – Doura, Al – Houraya, and Al- Baladiyyat in Baghdad , 2003 -2004.

The bombing of the Al – Askari Mosque in Samarra resulting in the mass executions of Palestinians by Iraqis resulting in thousands of Palestinians being stranded id squalid conditions in Al- Waleed and Al- Karma camps having been stripped of all assets.

It would not surprise you therefore to be told that the current onslaught on Palestinians by Syrian, Russian and Iranian troops has attracted no support for Palestinians from their most vocal supporters within the United Nations such as Malaysia. How perverse that the Iranians are simultaneously massacring Palestinians in Syria, simultaneously supporting Hamas in Gaza.

The BBC and other mainstream western media outlets purposely ignore this phenomenon probably due to a bigoted agenda rather than professional incompetence both of which run through its DNA.

Naturally a diagrammatic inconvenience as identified by the map above would never appear on a mainstream western media outlet such as the BBC ‘s website as it would in one picture destroy five decades of BBC  anti Jewish propaganda. Similarly, could you imagine the scenario of a BBC or CNN sycophant daring to mention the Charters of either body that controls Palestinians – namely the Palestine National Council via the Palestinians Authority and Fatah in the West Bank or Hamas in Gaza.

Both Charters read like the Nazi manifestos of Hitler’s Germany. The preamble of the Hamas Charter, 1988, calls for the liquidation of Israel and Article seven for the extermination of Jews. Article thirteen eliminates any possibility of peace negotiations and only by Jihad will Palestinian aims be achieved. Article thirty one is determines that all other religions must be subservient to Islam.

The Palestinian National Charter, July 1968, similar to the Hamas Charter only recognizes conflict and never a peaceful settlement, as per  Articles nine and ten . Article 15 calls for the elimination of Zionism a euphemism for the Jewish State of Israel which receives no consideration as an existing entity anywhere in the Charter. Article twenty two is a garbled and intellectually retarded piece of Nazi propaganda but worthy of reading if only to expose the absurdity of ’Palestinian ‘ objectives.

Ironically, given how important Jerusalem is to the so called Palestinians one would have imagined that reference to the Holy City would be within both Charters. Not one mention of Jerusalem in either Charter – one assumes from this that it is completely unimportant.

Paradoxically the Koran the most Holy of Islam’s books neither mentions the Jerusalem nor Palestinians as both are an irrelevance to Islam. The fact that the Palestinian political elite refer to Jerusalem and Palestine being their natural home, in fact mocks the Koran which in numerous Suras (17100/4; 5.20/26 : 26.52/59 ) as just three examples ) bestows the Holy Land to the Children of Israel.

In conclusion Palestinians are mocking Islam, Allah, Mohammed and the Holy Koran.

Now imagine if all those pro Palestinians, such as the left wing of various political parties and the Republic of Ireland actually went to the bother of reading these Charters. Would they be horrified to understand that they were supporting unfashionable, right wing Arab Nazis?  Possibly but my intuition would be that their Jew hatred overrides their ideology that they have been fighting against all their lives as antisemitism is so embedded within their DNA.
