Where were the Palestinians between the first century and 1948?
Archaeological and historical research of the geography from 1000 years BCE to the current day proves that no such people, race, tribe, culture or nation ever existed until Yasser Arafat, an Egyptian with the funding and assistance of the Soviet Union, created the ‘Palestinians’ in the 1960’s. The proof of the Palestinian non – existence is here and no amount of revisionism will amend that simple fact despite the weight of propaganda the United Nations and Israel’s enemies promote.
The Jewish people within the geography we now know as Israel were colonized by a variety of dynasties who oppressed and exiled the Jewish population. The Jewish people, the Jewish race, albeit part ethnically diluted race returned to their indigenous homeland and received nation status in 1948.
It is important to dispel the myth of European colonizers when referring to the Jewish people and the loss of their original ethnicity which is a weapon used against Israel and the enemies of the Jewish people. When a population has been dispersed through centuries of oppression from their original homeland, rape, intermarriage and conversion naturally dilute physical characteristics. Religious cultural beliefs and practices however have remained a constant connecting the Jewish people through the millennia.
Let’s review the presence of Judaism in the land of Israel, the Holy Land, and the absence of the Palestinian since time immemorial.
1020 – 732 BCE witnessed the presence of independent Jewish Kingdoms, pre days of Empire
732 – 597 BCE Neo – Assyrian Empire and the demise of the Kingdom of Israel
597 – 539 BCE Babylonian Empire and the demise of the Kingdom of Judah
539 – 533 BCE Persian Empire
333 – 63 BCE Greek Empire
63 – 313 CE Roman Empire
313 – 636 CE Byzantine Empire
636 – 1099 CE Arab Empire
1099 – 1021 CE Crusader Kingdoms
1291 – 1516 CE Ayyub and Mamluk Sultanate
1517 – 1917 CE Ottoman Empire
1918 – 1948 CE British Empire
During all these dynasties there is absolutely no presence that can be evidenced of any ‘Palestinian’ claim to any of the colonized land. No military activism, no political, religious nor legal claims let alone evidence of anything remotely resembling archaeological finds or acknowledgement by the numerous travelers to the area of an indigenous ‘Palestinian ‘ existence.
Hadrian, the Roman Emperor defeated the Bar Kochba revolt of the Jews against the Romans circa 135 CE, renamed the area Palaestina and banished the Jews from Jerusalem. Some Jews stayed in the surrounding area and others moved to Jewish areas such as Safed, Caesarea, and the Galilee as well as other geographical areas in the Middle East. At this time there was no Palestinian revolt against the Romans in efforts to regain any land colonized by them. The naming of the area Palaestina by the Romans was not in any way connected to today’s Palestinians but rather to the invaders from Greece, the Philistines, the former enemies of the Jewish people who settled the coastal regions before their extinction some five hundred years before the Romans arrived. Hadrian believed that by renaming the area after the immortal enemies of the Jews would be the ultimate act of humiliation and hostility, banishing any reference to Judaism to the homeland of the defeated, indigenous Jewish population.
The Jews were therefore dispersed and settled in a number of locations and as history proves, suffered for their religious beliefs throughout the centuries in those various locations ultimately with the Nazi holocaust and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Muslim countries immediately thereafter.
Unsurprisingly history finds no evidence of any people, race, tribe or culture known as Palestinian who attempted at any time to reclaim any lost land from any domestic or foreign colonizer. The anthropological miracle called the Palestinians only came into existence in the 1960’s, along with silicone breast implants and the mini skirt.
Whether a pogrom, being an organized atrocity or a massacre being a spontaneous one is of no consequence to the victims. History is a witness to numerous such atrocities and listed here are those (probably not all) committed against Jews by Muslims over fourteen hundred years where Jews were slaughtered as a defenseless minority.
The attempt by the Nazis to rid the world of its Jews nearly succeeded but perversely resulted in the Zionist objective – self-determination for Jewish people in their indigenous homeland with the formation of the Jewish State of Israel after WW2. The Palestinians are failing miserably in their attempts to fulfill the Nazi objectives by exterminating Jews as demanded in their Charters of the Palestinian National Council of 1968 and the Hamas Palestinian Charter of 1988. Absurdly the turmoil within Islam has promoted a growing number of Arab Muslim countries developing relationships with the Jewish State for their own security against other Arab and Islamic countries.
There have been several contributors to this chronological list of atrocities committed against the Jewish people since the origins of Islam and the irony is that during this period up to 1967, the Palestinians were not involved in one, not one such atrocity. This begs the question as to why given the numerous cowardly attacks inflicted on Jews by Palestinian terrorists after 1967. Were the indigenous Palestinians so peaceful for over one thousand years as other domestic and foreign invaders colonized the geography they currently claim? This cultural behavior would seem very different from their Islamic co – religionists in the immediate geographical area and surrounding countries? More of a paradox is that the Palestinian Charters demand Jew extermination and subservience or death to their form of Islam. So why were the Palestinians so well behaved, passive or uncommitted to regaining by force their lands in the previous centuries?
How odd that the Palestinians were never involved – maybe it’s because they never existed, unlike the Jews who far from being colonizers as promoted by the current, false narrative, were as evidenced by history, indigenous to the geography since time immemorial.
Remember when browsing through this diary of human suffering that each individual event exposed the moral indecency of the followers of Islam in an effort to dominate, subjugate, humiliate, colonize and exterminate those of a different religion. Nothing has changed given the Palestinian Charters of 1964 and 1968 and the Palestinian Hamas Charter of 1988 demanding extermination of Jews and subservience to Islam of all other religions.
I thank the several contributors to this extensive list which is probably not exhaustive and will be added to in the months ahead. It exposes humanity at its most morally indecent in the name of Islam.

The ‘Palestinian Cause’ as recognized by numerous Arab academics exposing militant Islamism is simply about land conquest from the original indigenous population.
Joseph Farah, Arab writer and journalist in ‘Myths Of The Middle East’:
“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 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”.
If the Palestinian objectives were to be fulfilled this list of atrocities would undoubtedly be extended. However, the Jewish people are not such easy prey these days for their enemies.
No morally decent person , nation , political or religious organization should support a Nazi ideological cause such as that promoted by the recently constructed ‘Palestinians’ whose two Charters of 1968 – the Palestinian National Council one and the Palestinian Hamas Charter of 1988 , demand extermination of Jewish people and subservience to Islam of all other races and religions.
Fortunately, other Arab countries through the Trump initiated Abraham accords are becoming disinterested the ‘Palestinian cause’ and developing military, political and economic relationships with Israel. These developing ties are on an unstoppable upward trajectory which mocks and damages the disgraceful Palestinian objectives and until those objectives as identified within the excremental Palestinian Charters are totally ditched no peace can ever be attained with the Islamic Nazis called the Palestinians.
