The immigrants who now identify as Palestinians

There have been hundreds of diarists from biblical recording their travels to Palestine without ever referring to those currently identifying themselves as indigenous Palestinians

“The miniskirt and the Barbie Doll were creations of the 1960’s – as are the Palestinians”.

Those writers, researchers, travelers, religious, political and military leaders who since time immemorial journeyed or inhabited and recorded their experiences in Palestine never in their writings alluded to a people, race or tribe indigenous to the geography known as Palestinians.

There have been hundreds of diarists from biblical recording their travels to Palestine without ever referring to those currently identifying themselves as indigenous Palestinians.  None of those writers ever referenced for example, a war, battle or conflict fought by Palestinians against any domestic or foreign invader in protection of their habitat let alone the name of any indigenous Palestinian leader. The fact is the indigenous Palestinian is an historical myth – an anthropological miracle.

In the attached article for Blitz, I have noted numerous individuals through the centuries who detailed their travels through the geographical area we now term Israel and the Palestinian Territories and none of these historians, researchers, travelers and diarists ever refer to the Palestinian people. And the reason is simple and logical as the Palestinians are immigrants to the geography.

Below are just some examples of Arab commentators who attest to my statement.

Auni Bey Abdul – Hadi, Syrian Arab leader to the British Peel Commission, 1937:

“There is no such country as Palestine. Palestine is a term the Zionists invented. There is no Palestine in the Koran, it is alien to us”.

Ahmadd Shukan Arab Ambassador to the United Nations, 1956:

“Such a creature as Palestine does not exist at all ….”

King Hussein of Jordan, stated in 1960:

“Since 1948 Arab leaders have approached the so-called Palestinian problem in an irresponsible manner. They have used the Palestinian issue for selfish political purposes. This is both ridiculous and criminal”.

Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist stated:

“Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?”

Zuhair Mushin . Member of the PLO Military Council in an interview with the Dutch paper Trouw, March 1977:

“There are no differences between Jordanians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our ”Palestinian ” identity…yes the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel”.

Perversely even the most high profile so called “Palestinian”, Yasser Arafat, real name Mohammed Abdel Rahman Raouf al – Qudwa, who was actually Egyptian, admitted in his autobiography that the Palestinians were an invention.

“If there is any such thing as a Palestinian it is I, Arafat who created them”.

Joseph Farah, Arab writer and historian in his book Myths Of The Middle East:

“There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians who are Arabs …”

Those identifying today as “Palestinians’ are third and fourth generation descendants of immigrants from surrounding Arab countries. There are a mountain of Government reports, articles, reference books and material proving beyond doubt that the vast majority of Arabs were not land owning Palestinians who had been indigenous inhabitants but immigrants benefitting from the economic advantages that Zionism created. Moreover, those Arabs never identified as Palestinians, a term they believed made a mockery of their origination. as the quotations above verify.

Arab immigration and Zionism combined to improve the economy of the area and it is intriguing to revert to the statements made by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem , Amin al – Husseini , to Sir Laurie Hammond of the Peel Commission in 1937 in which he confirmed and admitted that no land had been stolen by the Zionists but all had been legally purchased . The land buyers were the Jewish National Fund or individual philanthropists.

Many diarized about the influx of Arab immigration into Palestine during the first waves of Zionism.

James Finn, Papers Relating to the Disturbances in Syria, June 2nd 1860:

“I learn of the arrival of six thousand of the Bnei Sukhr Arabs at Tiberias who are never seen this side of the Jordan”.

C.G. Smith – Studies on Palestine During the Ottoman Period:

“After 1870, the Turkish forward policy included the planting of Circassian colonies in the country”.

The Encyclopedia Brittanica 1911 records:

“There are very large contingents from the Mediterranean countries especially Armenia, Greece and Italy. Turkomen settlers and a fairly large Afghan colony, Motawila immigrants from Persia, tribes of Kurds, a Bosnian colony, Circassian settlements and a large Algerian and Sudanese element”.

Tewlik Bey El Hourani, Governor of Houran Province, Southwest Syria stated in an interview with La Syne August 12th 1934, that “in the last few months up to thirty six thousand Houransee Syrians had entered and settled in Palestine”.

De Hass, History of Palestine, 1934:

“In 1860 entire Algerian tribes immigrated en masse to Safed. The Muslims of Safed are ”mostly descended from these Moorish settlers and from Kurds who arrived a little earlier to the area”.

It is obvious that immigrants were not only Arabs but European Christian and at one time Christians made up nearly fifty percent of post 1964 Palestinian population. The Muslim Palestinians have been very successful in ethnically cleansing the Christians now accounting for approximately five percent of today’s Palestinians.

De Hass History of Palestine 1934 continued:

“Today’s Palestinians are immigrants from many nations; ” Balkans , Greeks, Syrians, Latins, Egyptians , Turks, Armenians, Italians, Persians, Kurds, Germans, Afghans, Circassians, Bosnians, Sudanese, Samaritans, Algerians, Motawila, Tartars, Hungarians,  Scots, Navarese, Bretons, English, Franks, Ruthenians, Bohemians,, Bulgarians, , Georgians, Persian, Copts, Indians, Maronites and many others”.

The Palestine Peel Commission Report , London, 1937:

“The illegal Arab immigration was not only going on from the Sinai , but also from Transjordan and Syria, and it is very difficult to make a case out for the misery of the Arabs if at the same time their compatriots from adjoining states could not be kept from going in to share that misery”.

Winston Churchill, 1922, A Peace To End All Peace:

“The Arabs would have sat in the dark forever had not the Zionist engineers harnessed the Jordan River for electrification. Now they swarm into Palestine seeking the light”.

In 1939 Churchill wrote:

“So far from being persecuted.the Arabs have crowded into the country and multiplied until their population has increased more than even all world Jewry could lift up the Jewish population”.

Ernst Frankenstein in his Justice for my People, 1943:

“Ibrahim Pasha the 1831 Egyptian conqueror of Palestine left behind him permanent colonies of Egyptians at Besian, Nablus, Irbid, Acre and Jaffa – into Jaffa alone at least 2000 have been imported”.

James William Parkes in his History of the Peoples of Palestine, 1970 page 212, wrote thus, “There are villages populated wholly by settlers from other portions of the Turkish Empire in the 19th century. There are villages of Bosnians, Circassians and Egyptians”.

How is it that the fictional Palestinians has managed to convince the world that they are the historical peoples of the geography they claim has been stolen from them by the Zionists. The Palestinians are a fictitious people that have morphed into fact. The world however chooses to ignore the facts. The modern antisemitism is to support Palestinian claims which historically and legally have never existed.

Dear readers, Blitz is neither an Israeli State nor Jewish owned or sponsored publication. It is an independent journal which has been publishing the truth under extreme adversities since 2003.
