Anti-Semitism Needs Only An Excuse

Submitted by Charles Knighton

IsraelThe Palestinian murderers do not want to build a state, they want to destroy a state and they say it out loud. They do not murder for peace and they do not murder for human rights. Netanyahu says UN chief Ban Ki-moon encouraging terror –  January 28 Advocate

We have to be honest enough to admit that more than 70 years after the Shoah, anti-Semitism is still alive in our ‘civilised’ European Union. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s top foreign affairs representative, Holocaust victims honoured 71 years after Auschwitz liberated – January 28 Advocate

The juxtaposition of these two articles on page 17 of the Advocate’s Thursday edition certainly caught my eye. Israel’s most vehement critics, and Barbados hosts not a few, like to accuse it of Nazi-like “genocide” when it defends itself against militant Palestinians, particularly in Gaza. Now, there’s a legitimate debate about whether Israel could have caused fewer civilian deaths in defending itself against Hamas’s rocket attacks and tunnel building last year as well as its response to the recent spate of shootings and stabbings directed against Israeli civilians.

But genocide has a specific meaning, which is the deliberate, total annihilation of a people. Where do we find actual genocide in Gaza? In Hamas’s “Covenant—its statement of its sacred mission. “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it,” the Covenant states, adding, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews).”

When Hamas, and Hezbolla before it, fired thousands of rockets into Israeli towns and cities, its leaders MEANT to kill as many Jews as possible and failed only because of the Iron Dome defense system. If these terrorists were to acquire more-sophisticated missiles or tactical nuclear weapons, they would happily kill millions of Jews in a Second Holocaust. All critics of Israel are not anti-Semitic. But those who ignore the genocidal intent of groups like Hamas and  Hezbolla and then hurl the word “genocide” at its intended victims, give themselves away.

The frequently heard rationalization/justification that blames Israel for anti-Semitism misses the point. For about 2000 years, anti-Semitism both existed and thrived when Israel did neither. The pogroms of Europe—and the occasional ones of the Muslim Middle East—took place with no Israel in sight. The Holocaust consumed 6 million Jews, and not because Hitler was pro-Palestinian. Anti-Semitism infected ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, the subtle mind of T.S. Eliot and the tinkering brain of Henry Ford way before any future Israeli had pushed around any future Palestinian. Anti-Semitism does not need a reason. It needs only an excuse.

    Miko Peled the (Israeli) General’s son

    Miko Peled’s grandfather was a signer on Israel’s Declaration of Independence, and his father was General Matti Peled, one of the Zionists who planned and executed Israel’s most definitive military victories in 1948 and 1967. In the following interview with Alternate Focus Peled talks about his book The General’s Son, from his evolution as an Israeli that was raised on the Zionist ideal of a Jewish state to his reality today. Miko’s words speak truth to empower.

    snip

    At a meeting of the General Staff after the Six Day War, Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin was beaming with the glory of victory. But when the meeting was nearing its end, my father raised his hand. He was called on, and he spoke of the unique chance the victory offered—to solve the Palestinian problem once and for all. For the first time in Israel’s history, we were face to face with the Palestinians, without other Arabs between us. Now we had a chance to offer them a state of their own in the West Bank and Gaza. He claimed with certainty that holding on to the West Bank and the people who lived in it was contrary to Israel’s long-term strategy. Popular resistance to the occupation was sure to arise, and Israel’s army would be used to quell that resistance, with disastrous and demoralizing results. It would turn the Jewish state into an increasingly brutal occupying power and eventually into a bi-national state. This was nothing short of prophetic as today we live this exact reality. As he was saying this, the future leaders of the Intifada (the Palestinian uprising) were still lying in their cradles.

    His words were ignored, his claims brushed aside and instead, blinded by their newly gained access to places with mythical/biblical names like Hebron and Bethlehem, Shilo and Shcem Israeli leaders began a massive settlement project to settle Jews in the newly conquered land. A few years later my father called on Israel to negotiate with the PLO: The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). He claimed that Israel needed to talk with whoever represented the Palestinian people, the people with whom we shared this land. He believed only peace with the Palestinians could ensure our continued existence as a state that was both Jewish and democratic.) Now, all these years later people talk of creating a Palestinian state in the WB but that option no longer exists.

    Talk about re-writing history! There were NEVER any ancient people called Palestinians, nor was there ANY ancient land called Palestine. The land of ‘Israel’ was renamed by Emperor Hadrian, (circa 73 AD) after he drove the Jews out of their ancient homeland, and in his hatred for the Jews he called the Jewish homeland Palestine.

    Ancient Jewish History:
    The Diaspora

    The Jewish state comes to an end in 70 AD, when the Romans begin to actively drive Jews from the home they had lived in for over a millennium. But the Jewish Diaspora (“diaspora” =”dispersion, scattering”) had begun long before the Romans had even dreamed of Judaea.

    When the Assyrians conquered Israel in 722, the Hebrew inhabitants were scattered all over the Middle East; these early victims of the dispersion disappeared utterly from the pages of history.

    However, when Nebuchadnezzar deported the Judaeans in 597 and 586 BC, he allowed them to remain in a unified community in Babylon. Another group of Judaeans fled to Egypt, where they settled in the Nile delta. So from 597 onwards, there were three distinct groups of Hebrews: a group in Babylon and other parts of the Middle East, a group in Judaea, and another group in Egypt.

    Thus, 597 is considered the beginning date of the Jewish Diaspora. While Cyrus the Persian allowed the Judaeans to return to their homeland in 538 BC, most chose to remain in Babylon. A large number of Jews in Egypt became mercenaries in Upper Egypt on an island called the Elephantine.

    All of these Jews retained their religion, identity, and social customs; both under the Persians and the Greeks, they were allowed to run their lives under their own laws. Some converted to other religions; still others combined the Yahweh cult with local cults; but the majority clung to the Hebraic religion and its new-found core document, the Torah.

    In 63 BC, Judaea became a protectorate of Rome. Coming under the administration of a governor, Judaea was allowed a king; the governor’s business was to regulate trade and maximize tax revenue.

    While the Jews despised the Greeks, the Romans were a nightmare. Governorships were bought at high prices; the governors would attempt to squeeze as much revenue as possible from their regions and pocket as much as they could.

    Even with a Jewish king, the Judaeans revolted in 70 AD, a desperate revolt that ended tragically. In 73 AD, the last of the revolutionaries were holed up in a mountain fort called Masada; the Romans had besieged the fort for two years, and the 1,000 men, women, and children inside were beginning to starve.

    In desperation, the Jewish revolutionaries killed themselves rather than surrender to the Romans. The Romans then destroyed Jerusalem, annexed Judaea as a Roman province, and systematically drove the Jews from Palestine.

    After 73 AD, Hebrew history would only be the history of the Diaspora as the Jews and their world view spread over Africa, Asia, and Europe.

    MYTHS & FACTS – A Guide to the Arab- Israeli Conflict

    MYTH
    “The Jews have no claim to the land they call Israel.”

    FACT
    A common misperception is that all the Jews were forced into the Diaspora by the Romans after the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in the year 70 C.E. and then, 1,800 years later, the Jews suddenly returned to Palestine demanding their country back. In reality, the Jewish people have maintained ties to their historic homeland for more than 3,700 years.

    The Jewish people base their claim to the Land of Israel on at least four premises: 1) the Jewish people settled and developed the land; 2) the international community granted political sovereignty in Palestine to the Jewish people; 3) the territory was captured in defensive wars and 4) God promised the land to the patriarch Abraham.

    Even after the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, and the beginning of the exile, Jewish life in the Land of Israel continued and often flourished. Large communities were reestablished in Jerusalem and Tiberias by the ninth century. In the 11th century, Jewish communities grew in Rafah, Gaza, Ashkelon, Jaffa and Caesarea.

    The Crusaders massacred many Jews during the 12th century, but the community rebounded in the next two centuries as large numbers of rabbis and Jewish pilgrims immigrated to Jerusalem and the Galilee. Prominent rabbis established communities in Safed, Jerusalem and elsewhere during the next 300 years.

    By the early 19th century—years before the birth of the modern Zionist movement—more than 10,000 Jews lived throughout what is today Israel.1 The 78 years of nation-building, beginning in 1870, culminated in the reestablishment of the Jewish State.

    Israel’s international “birth certificate” was validated by the promise of the Bible; uninterrupted Jewish settlement from the time of Joshua onward; the Balfour Declaration of 1917; the League of Nations Mandate, which incorporated the Balfour Declaration; the United Nations partition resolution of 1947; Israel’s admission to the UN in 1949; the recognition of Israel by most other states; and, most of all, the society created by Israel’s people in decades of thriving, dynamic national existence.

    “Nobody does Israel any service by proclaiming its ‘right to exist.’ Israel’s right to exist, like that of the United States, Saudi Arabia and 152 other states, is axiomatic and unreserved. Israel’s legitimacy is not suspended in midair awaiting acknowledgement. . . .There is certainly no other state, big or small, young or old, that would consider mere recognition of its ‘right to exist’ a favor, or a negotiable concession.”

    Abba Eban

    MYTH
    “Palestine was always an Arab country.”

    FACT
    The term “Palestine” is believed to be derived from the Philistines, an Aegean people who, in the 12th Century B.C.E., settled along the Mediterranean coastal plain of what are now Israel and the Gaza Strip. In the second century C.E., after crushing the last Jewish revolt, the Romans first applied the name Palaestina to Judea (the southern portion of what is now called the West Bank) in an attempt to minimize Jewish identification with the land of Israel. The Arabic word Filastin is derived from this Latin name.

    Map of British Mandate

    The Hebrews entered the Land of Israel about 1300 B.C.E., living under a tribal confederation until being united under the first monarch, King Saul.

    The second king, David, established Jerusalem as the capital around 1000 B.C.E. David’s son, Solomon, built the Temple soon thereafter and consolidated the military, administrative and religious functions of the kingdom.

    The nation was divided under Solomon’s son, with the northern kingdom (Israel) lasting until 722 B.C.E., when the Assyrians destroyed it, and the southern kingdom (Judah) surviving until the Babylonian conquest in 586 B.C.E. The Jewish people enjoyed brief periods of sovereignty afterward until most Jews were finally driven from their homeland in 135 C.E.

    Jewish independence in the Land of Israel lasted for more than 400 years. This is much longer than Americans have enjoyed independence in what has become known as the United States. 4 In fact, if not for foreign conquerors, Israel would be more than 3,000 years old today.

    Palestine was never an exclusively Arab country, although Arabic gradually became the language of most of the population after the Muslim invasions of the seventh century. No independent Arab or Palestinian state ever existed in Palestine. When the distinguished Arab-American historian, Princeton University Prof. Philip Hitti, testified against partition before the Anglo-American Committee in 1946, he said:

    “There is no such thing as ‘Palestine’ in history, absolutely not.”

    Prior to partition, Palestinian Arabs did not view themselves as having a separate identity. When the First Congress of Muslim-Christian Associations met in Jerusalem in February 1919 to choose Palestinian representatives for the Paris Peace Conference, the following resolution was adopted:

    We consider Palestine as part of Arab Syria, as it has never been separated from it at any time. We are connected with it by national, religious, linguistic, natural, economic and geographical bonds.

    In 1937, a local Arab leader, Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, told the Peel Commission, which ultimately suggested the partition of Palestine: “There is no such country as Palestine! ‘Palestine’ is a term the Zionists invented! There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our country was for centuries part of Syria.”

    The representative of the Arab Higher Committee to the United Nations echoed this view in a statement to the General Assembly in May 1947, which said Palestine was part of the Province of Syria and the Arabs of Palestine did not comprise a separate political entity. A few years later, Ahmed Shuqeiri, later the chairman of the PLO, told the Security Council:

    “It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria.”

    Palestinian Arab nationalism is largely a post-World War I phenomenon that did not become a significant political movement until after the 1967 Six-Day War.

    MYTH
    “The Palestinians are descendants of the Canaanites and were in Palestine long before the Jews.”

    FACT
    Palestinian claims to be related to the Canaanites are a recent phenomenon and contrary to historical evidence. The Canaanites disappeared from the face of the earth three millennia ago, and no one knows if any of their descendants survived or, if they did, who they would be.

    Sherif Hussein, the guardian of the Islamic Holy Places in Arabia, said the Palestinians’ ancestors had only been in the area for 1,000 years. Even the Palestinians themselves have acknowledged their association with the region came long after the Jews.

    In testimony before the Anglo-American Committee in 1946, for example, they claimed a connection to Palestine of more than 1,000 years, dating back no further than the conquest of Muhammad’s followers in the 7th century.10Over the last 2,000 years, there have been massive invasions (e.g., the Crusades) that killed off most of the local people, migrations, the plague, and other manmade or natural disasters. The entire local population was replaced many times over. During the British mandate alone, more than 100,000 Arabs emigrated from neighboring countries and are today considered Palestinians.

    By contrast, no serious historian questions the more than 3,000-year-old Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, or the modern Jewish people’s relation to the ancient Hebrews.

    MYTH
    “The Balfour Declaration did not give Jews the right to a homeland in Palestine.”

    FACT
    In 1917, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration:

    His Majesty’s Government views with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

    The Mandate for Palestine included the Balfour Declaration. It specifically referred to “the historical connections of the Jewish people with Palestine” and to the moral validity of “reconstituting their National Home in that country.” The term “reconstituting” shows recognition of the fact that Palestine had been the Jews’ home. Furthermore, the British were instructed to “use their best endeavors to facilitate” Jewish immigration, to encourage settlement on the land and to “secure” the Jewish National Home. The word “Arab” does not appear in the Mandatory award. 11

    The Mandate was formalized by the 52 governments at the League of Nations on July 24, 1922.

    MYTH
    “Arabs in Palestine suffered because of Jewish settlement.”

    FACT
    For many centuries, Palestine was a sparsely populated, poorly cultivated and widely-neglected expanse of eroded hills, sandy deserts and malarial marshes. As late as 1880, the American consul in Jerusalem reported the area was continuing its historic decline. “The population and wealth of Palestine has not increased during the last forty years,” he said. 12

    The Report of the Palestine Royal Commission quotes an account of the Maritime Plain in 1913:

    The road leading from Gaza to the north was only a summer track suitable for transport by camels and carts . . . ​no orange groves, orchards or vineyards were to be seen until one reached [the Jewish village of] Yabna [Yavne]. . . . Houses were all of mud. No windows were anywhere to be seen. . . . The ploughs used were of wood. . . . The yields were very poor. . . . The sanitary conditions in the village were horrible. Schools did not exist. . . . The western part, towards the sea, was almost a desert. . . . The villages in this area were few and thinly populated. Many ruins of villages were scattered over the area, as owing to the prevalence of malaria, many villages were deserted by their inhabitants. 13

    Surprisingly, many people who were not sympathetic to the Zionist cause believed the Jews would improve the condition of Palestinian Arabs. For example, Dawood Barakat, editor of the Egyptian paper Al-Ahram, wrote: “It is absolutely necessary that an entente be made between the Zionists and Arabs, because the war of words can only do evil.

    The Zionists are necessary for the country: The money which they will bring, their knowledge and intelligence, and the industriousness which characterizes them will contribute without doubt to the regeneration of the country.”

    Even a leading Arab nationalist believed the return of the Jews to their homeland would help resuscitate the country. According to Sherif Hussein, the guardian of the Islamic Holy Places in Arabia:

    The resources of the country are still virgin soil and will be developed by the Jewish immigrants. One of the most amazing things until recent times was that the Palestinian used to leave his country, wandering over the high seas in every direction. His native soil could not retain a hold on him, though his ancestors had lived on it for 1000 years.

    At the same time we have seen the Jews from foreign countries streaming to Palestine from Russia, Germany, Austria, Spain, America. The cause of causes could not escape those who had a gift of deeper insight. They knew that the country was for its original sons (abna’ihi-l-asliyin), for all their differences, a sacred and beloved homeland. The return of these exiles (jaliya) to their homeland will prove materially and spiritually [to be] an experimental school for their brethren who are with them in the fields, factories, trades and in all things connected with toil and labor. 15

    As Hussein foresaw, the regeneration of Palestine, and the growth of its population, came only after Jews returned in massive numbers.

    “Mark Twain, who visited Palestine in 1867, described it as: “. . . a desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds—a silent mournful expanse. . . . A desolation is here that not even imagination can grace with the pomp of life and action. . . . We never saw a human being on the whole route. . . . There was hardly a tree or a shrub anywhere. Even the olive and the cactus, those fast friends of the worthless soil, had almost deserted the country.”

    MYTH
    “Zionism is racism.”

    FACT
    In 1975, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution slandering Zionism by equating it with racism. Zionism is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, which holds that Jews, like any other nation, are entitled to a homeland.

    History has demonstrated the need to ensure Jewish security through a national homeland. Zionism recognizes that Jewishness is defined by shared origin, religion, culture and history. The realization of the Zionist dream is exemplified by nearly six million Jews, from more than 100 countries, who are Israeli citizens.

    Israel’s Law of Return grants automatic citizenship to Jews, but non-Jews are also eligible to become citizens under naturalization procedures similar to those in other countries. Israel’s policy is not unique; many other countries, including Germany, Greece, Ireland and Finland have special categories of people who are entitled to citizenship.

    More than one million Muslim and Christian Arabs, Druze, Baha’is, Circassians and other ethnic groups also are represented in Israel’s population. The presence in Israel of thousands of Jews from Ethiopia, Yemen and India is the best refutation of the calumny against Zionism. In a series of historic airlifts, labeled Operations Moses (1984), Joshua (1985) and Solomon (1991), Israel rescued more than 20,000 members of the ancient Ethiopian Jewish community.

    Zionism does not discriminate against anyone. Israel’s open and democratic character, and its scrupulous protection of the religious and political rights of Christians and Muslims, rebut the charge of exclusivity. Moreover, anyone—Jew or non-Jew, Israeli, American, or Chinese, black, white, or purple—can be a Zionist.

    By contrast, the Arab states define citizenship strictly by native parentage. It is almost impossible to become a naturalized citizen in Arab states such as Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Several Arab nations have laws that facilitate the naturalization of foreign Arabs, with the specific exception of Palestinians. Jordan, on the other hand, instituted its own “law of return” in 1954, according citizenship to all former residents of Palestine, except for Jews.

    The 1975 UN resolution was part of the Soviet-Arab Cold War anti-Israel campaign. Almost all the former non-Arab supporters of the resolution have apologized and changed their positions. When the General Assembly voted to repeal the resolution in 1991, only some Arab and Muslim states, as well as Cuba, North Korea and Vietnam were opposed.

    Writing after “Operation Moses” was revealed, William Safire noted:

    “. . . For the first time in history, thousands of black people are being brought to a country not in chains but in dignity, not as slaves but as citizens.” http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org

    Facts become credible facts, when there are warranted to the relevant degree of certainty.

    MYTH
    “The Zionists could have chosen another country besides Palestine.”

    FACT
    In the late 19th century, the rise of anti-Semitism led to a resurgence of pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe, shattering promises of equality and tolerance. This stimulated Jewish immigration to Palestine from Europe.

    Simultaneously, a wave of Jews immigrated to Palestine from Yemen, Morocco, Iraq and Turkey. These Jews were unaware of Theodor -Herzl’s political Zionism or of European pogroms.

    They were motivated by the centuries-old dream of the “Return to Zion” and a fear of intolerance. Upon hearing that the gates of Palestine were open, they braved the hardships of travel and went to the Land of Israel.

    The Zionist ideal of a return to Israel has profound religious roots. Many Jewish prayers speak of Jerusalem, Zion and the Land of Israel.

    The injunction not to forget Jerusalem, the site of the Temple, is a major tenet of Judaism. The Hebrew language, the Torah, laws in the Talmud, the Jewish calendar and Jewish holidays and festivals all originated in Israel and revolve around its seasons and conditions.

    Jews pray toward Jerusalem and recite the words “next year in Jerusalem” every Passover. Jewish religion, culture and history make clear that it is only in the land of Israel that the Jewish commonwealth can be built.

    In 1897, Jewish leaders formally organized the Zionist political movement, calling for the restoration of the Jewish national home in Palestine, where Jews could find sanctuary and self-determination, and work for the renascence of their civilization and culture.

    MYTH
    “Herzl himself proposed Uganda as the Jewish state as an alternative to Palestine.”

    FACT
    Theodor Herzl sought support from the great powers for the creation of a Jewish homeland. He turned to Great Britain, and met with Joseph Chamberlain, the British colonial secretary and others. The British agreed, in principle, to permit Jewish settlement in East Africa.

    At the Sixth Zionist Congress at Basle on August 26, 1903, Herzl proposed the British Uganda Program as a temporary emergency refuge for Jews in Russia in immediate danger.

    While Herzl made it clear that this program would not affect the ultimate aim of Zionism, a Jewish entity in the Land of Israel, the proposal aroused a storm of protest at the Congress and nearly led to a split in the Zionist movement. The Uganda Program, which never had much support, was formally rejected by the Zionist movement at the Seventh Zionist Congress in 1905.

    MYTH
    “The Arabs saw the Balfour Declaration as a betrayal of their rights.”

    FACT
    Emir Faisal, son of Sherif Hussein, the leader of the Arab revolt against the Turks, signed an agreement with Chaim Weizmann and other Zionist leaders during the 1919 Paris Peace Conference.

    It acknowledged the “racial kinship and ancient bonds existing between the Arabs and the Jewish people” and concluded that “the surest means of working out the consummation of their national aspirations is through the closest possible collaboration in the development of the Arab states and Palestine.”

    Furthermore, the agreement looked to the fulfillment of the Balfour Declaration and called for all necessary measures “ . . . ​to encourage and stimulate immigration of Jews into Palestine on a large scale, and as quickly as possible to settle Jewish immigrants upon the land through closer settlement and intensive cultivation of the soil.”

    Faisal had conditioned his acceptance of the Balfour Declaration on the fulfillment of British wartime promises of independence to the Arabs. These were not kept.

    Critics dismiss the Weizmann-Faisal agreement because it was never enacted; however, the fact that the leader of the Arab nationalist movement and the Zionist movement could reach an understanding is significant because it demonstrated that Jewish and Arab aspirations were not necessarily mutually exclusive.

    “Our settlers do not come here as do the colonists from the Occident to have natives do their work for them; they themselves set their shoulders to the plow and they spend their strength and their blood to make the land fruitful. But it is not only for ourselves that we desire its fertility.

    The Jewish farmers have begun to teach their brothers, the Arab farmers, to cultivate the land more intensively; we desire to teach them further: together with them we want to cultivate the land—to ‘serve’ it, as the Hebrew has it. The more fertile this soil becomes, the more space there will be for us and for them. We have no desire to dispossess them: we want to live with them.”

    Martin Buber

    MYTH
    “The Zionists were colonialist tools of Western imperialism.”

    FACT
    “Colonialism means living by exploiting others,” Yehoshofat Harkabi has written. “But what could be further from colonialism than the idealism of city-dwelling Jews who strive to become farmers and laborers and to live by their own work?”

    Moreover, as British historian Paul Johnson noted, Zionists were hardly tools of imperialists given the powers’ general opposition to their cause. “Everywhere in the West, the foreign offices, defense ministries and big business were against the Zionists.”

    Emir Faisal also saw the Zionist movement as a companion to the Arab nationalist movement, fighting against imperialism, as he explained in a letter to Harvard law professor and future Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter on March 3, 1919, one day after Chaim Weizmann presented the Zionist case to the Paris conference. Faisal wrote:

    The Arabs, especially the educated among us, look with deepest sympathy on the Zionist movement. . . . We will wish the Jews a hearty welcome home. . . . We are working together for a reformed and revised Near East and our two movements complete one another. The Jewish movement is nationalist and not imperialist. And there is room in Syria for us both. Indeed, I think that neither can be a real success without the other (emphasis added).

    In the 1940s, the Jewish underground movements waged an anti–colonial war against the British. The Arabs, meanwhile, were concerned primarily with fighting the Jews rather than expelling the British imperialists.

    MYTH
    “The British promised the Arabs independence in Palestine.”

    FACT
    The central figure in the Arab nationalist movement at the time of World War I was Hussein ibn ‘Ali, the Sherif of Mecca in 1908. As Sherif, Hussein was responsible for the custody of Islam’s shrines in the Hejaz and was one of the Muslims’ spiritual leaders.

    In July 1915, Hussein sent a letter to Sir Henry MacMahon, the High Commissioner for Egypt, informing him of the terms for Arab participation in the war against the Turks. The letters between Hussein and MacMahon that followed outlined the areas that Britain was prepared to cede to the Arabs in exchange for their help.

    The Hussein-MacMahon correspondence conspicuously fails to mention Palestine. The British argued the omission had been intentional, thereby justifying their refusal to grant the Arabs independence in Palestine after the war.MacMahon explained:

    I feel it my duty to state, and I do so definitely and emphatically, that it was not intended by me in giving this pledge to King Hussein to include Palestine in the area in which Arab independence was promised. I also had every reason to believe at the time that the fact that Palestine was not included in my pledge was well understood by King Hussein. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org

    ZOE HAS OFF COURSE GIVEN THE PRFECT ANSWER FROM BIBLICAL AND OTHER ACCEPTED JEWISH HISTORY

    The BU BIble illiterates will off course mock and scoff as they have done for the last 7 years.

    tHE POINT I WAS MAKING EARLIER IS THAT FOR A JEW TO SPEAK OF “mythical/biblical names like Hebron and Bethlehem, Shilo and Shcem” TELLS ME THAT HE IS AN UNBELEVING MORON..THAT would be like saying Peny hole and Sweet Bottom 0f Fairways Gardens were not real Bajan locations.

    When a Jew says that ” Israel should negotiate with the PLO: The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), or talk with whoever represented the Palestinian people, the people with whom we shared this land, He is telling me that h has left GOd out of the equation, and that he has never the prophecies of how this story will end

    When a Jew says that “. He believed only peace with the Palestinians could ensure our continued existence as a state that was both Jewish and democratic,.) he tells me that he is lacking in understanding of his history and that he lacks an understanding of the nature of the conflict.

    Soon the Antichrist will usher in a state that is Jewish and Palestinian. There will b a pseudo peace for 3 and one half years…..then all hell will break loose as predicted in the Olivet Discourse as well as several of the OT prophets. this period is called the Great Tribulation or the Time of Jacob”s trouble inter alia.

    Seven years after Antichrist will usher in a state that is Jewish and Palestinian CHRIST WILL RETURN IN GLORY AND DEFEAT THE ARMIES OF THE UNITED NATIONS AT ARMAGEDDON AND SET UP HIS MILLENNIAL KINGDOM SO OFTEN PREDICTED BY OT PROPHETS.

    @HOPI, Your independent thought of MYTHS & LIES, can NEVER erase the FACTS, EVIDENCE, and TRUTH, of Israel’s RIGHT to their Ancient Homeland, of over 3000 years!

    MYTH
    “The Jews started the first war with the Arabs.”

    FACT
    The Arabs made clear they would go to war to prevent the establishment of a Jewish state. The chairman of the Arab Higher Committee said the Arabs would “fight for every inch of their country.” Two days later, the holy men of Al-Azhar University in Cairo called on the Muslim world to proclaim a jihad (holy war) against the Jews. Jamal Husseini, the Arab Higher Committee’s spokesman, had told the UN prior to the partition vote the Arabs would drench “the soil of our beloved country with the last drop of our blood. . . .”

    Map of Arab Invasion, 1948

    Husseini’s prediction began to come true almost immediately after the UN adopted the partition resolution on November 29, 1947. The Arabs declared a protest strike and instigated riots that claimed the lives of 62 Jews and 32 Arabs. Violence continued to escalate through the end of the year.

    The first large-scale assaults began on January 9, 1948, when approximately 1,000 Arabs attacked Jewish communities in northern Palestine. By February, the British said so many Arabs had infiltrated they lacked the forces to run them back.

    In the first phase of the war, lasting from November 29, 1947, until April 1, 1948, the Palestinian Arabs took the offensive, with help from volunteers from neighboring countries. The Jews suffered severe casualties and passage along most of their major roadways was disrupted.

    On April 26, 1948, Transjordan’s King Abdullah said:

    All our efforts to find a peaceful solution to the Palestine problem have failed. The only way left for us is war. I will have the pleasure and honor to save Palestine.

    On May 4, 1948, the Arab Legion attacked Kfar Etzion. The defenders drove them back, but the Legion returned a week later. After two days, the ill-equipped and outnumbered settlers were overwhelmed. Many defenders were massacred after they had surrendered. This was prior to the invasion by the regular Arab armies that followed Israel’s declaration of independence.

    The UN blamed the Arabs for the violence. The UN Palestine Commission, which was never permitted by the Arabs or British to go to Palestine to implement the resolution, reported to the Security Council on February 16, 1948, that “powerful Arab interests, both inside and outside Palestine, are defying the resolution of the General Assembly and are engaged in a deliberate effort to alter by force the settlement envisaged therein.” 8

    The Arabs were blunt in taking responsibility for the war. Jamal Husseini told the Security Council on April 16, 1948:

    The representative of the Jewish Agency told us yesterday that they were not the attackers, that the Arabs had begun the fighting. We did not deny this. We told the whole world that we were going to fight. 9

    The British commander of Jordan’s Arab Legion, John Bagot Glubb admitted:

    Early in January, the first detachments of the Arab Liberation Army began to infiltrate into Palestine from Syria. Some came through Jordan and even through Amman . . . ​They were in reality to strike the first blow in the ruin of the Arabs of Palestine.

    Despite the disadvantages in numbers, organization and weapons, the Jews began to take the initiative in the weeks from April 1 until the declaration of independence on May 14. The Haganah captured several major towns including Tiberias and Haifa, and temporarily opened the road to Jerusalem.

    The partition resolution was never suspended or rescinded. Thus, Israel, the Jewish State in Palestine, was born on May 14, as the British finally left the country. Five Arab armies (Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq) immediately invaded Israel. Their intentions were declared by Abd Al-Rahman Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League: “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.”

    Military Situation at Cease Fire (June 11, 1948)

    MYTH
    “The United States was the only nation that criticized the Arab attack on Israel.”

    FACT
    The United States, the Soviet Union and most other states recognized Israel soon after it declared independence on May 14, 1948, and immediately condemned the Arabs for their aggression. The United States urged a resolution charging the Arabs with breach of the peace.

    Soviet delegate Andrei Gromyko told the Security Council, May 29, 1948:

    This is not the first time that the Arab states, which organized the invasion of Palestine, have ignored a decision of the Security Council or of the General Assembly. The USSR delegation deems it essential that the council should state its opinion more clearly and more firmly with regard to this attitude of the Arab states toward decisions of the Security Council.

    On July 15, the Security Council threatened to cite the Arab governments for aggression under the UN Charter. By this time, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had succeeded in stopping the Arab offensive and the initial phase of the fighting ended.

    MYTH
    “The West’s support of Israel allowed the Jews to conquer Palestine.”

    FACT
    The Jews won their war of independence with minimal help from the West. In fact, they won despite actions that undermined their military strength.

    Although the United States vigorously supported the partition resolution, the State Department did not want to provide the Jews with the means to defend themselves. “Otherwise,” Undersecretary of State Robert Lovett argued, “the Arabs might use arms of U.S. origin against Jews, or Jews might use them against Arabs.” Consequently, on December 5, 1947, the U.S. imposed an arms embargo on the region.

    Many opponents of the Jewish state in the State Department saw the embargo as a means of obstructing partition. President Truman, however, supported it because he hoped it could avert bloodshed. This was naive given Britain’s rejection of Lovett’s request to suspend weapons shipments to the Arabs and subsequent agreements to provide additional arms to Iraq and Transjordan.

    Armistice Lines, 1949

    The Arabs had no difficulty obtaining all the arms they needed. In fact, Jordan’s Arab Legion was armed and trained by the British, and led by a British officer. At the end of 1948, and beginning of 1949, British RAF planes flew with Egyptian squadrons over the Israel-Egypt border. On January 7, 1949, Israeli planes shot down four of the British aircraft.

    The Jews, on the other hand, were forced to smuggle weapons, principally from Czechoslovakia. When Israel declared its independence in May 1948, the army did not have a single cannon or tank. Its air force consisted of nine obsolete planes. Although the Haganah had 60,000 trained fighters, only 18,900 were fully mobilized, armed and prepared for war. 16 On the eve of the war, chief of operations Yigael Yadin told David Ben-Gurion: “The best we can tell you is that we have a 50–50 chance.”

    The Arab war to destroy Israel failed. Indeed, because of their aggression, the Arabs wound up with less territory than they would have had if they had accepted partition.

    The cost to Israel, however, was enormous. “Many of its most productive fields lay gutted and mined. Its citrus groves, for decades the basis of the Yishuv’s Jewish community economy, were largely destroyed.” 18 Military expenditures totaled approximately $500 million. Worse yet, 6,373 Israelis were killed, nearly one percent of the Jewish population of 650,000.

    Had the West enforced the partition resolution or given the Jews the capacity to defend themselves, many lives might have been saved.

    The Arab countries signed armistice agreements with Israel in 1949, starting with Egypt (Feb. 24), followed by Lebanon (March 23), Jordan (April 3) and Syria (July 20). Iraq was the only country that did not sign an agreement with Israel, choosing instead to withdraw its troops and hand over its sector to Jordan’s Arab Legion. None of the Arab states would negotiate a peace agreement.

    MYTH
    “The Arab economic boycott was imposed in response to the creation of Israel.”

    FACT
    The Arab boycott was formally declared by the newly formed Arab League Council on December 2, 1945: “Jewish products and manufactured goods shall be considered undesirable to the Arab countries.” All Arab “institutions, organizations, merchants, commission agents and individuals” were called upon “to refuse to deal in, distribute, or consume Zionist products or manufactured goods.” As is evident in this declaration, the terms “Jewish” and “Zionist” were used synonymously. Thus, even before the establishment of Israel, the Arab states had declared an economic boycott against the Jews of Palestine.

    The boycott, as it evolved after 1948, is divided into three components. The primary boycott prohibits direct trade between Israel and the Arab nations. The secondary boycott is directed at companies that do business with Israel. The tertiary boycott involves the blacklisting of firms that trade with other companies that do business with Israel.

    The objective of the boycott has been to isolate Israel from its neighbors and the international community, and deny it trade that might be used to augment its military and economic strength. While undoubtedly isolating Israel and separating the Jewish State from its most natural markets, the boycott failed to undermine Israel’s economy to the degree intended.

    In 1977, Congress prohibited U.S. companies from cooperating with the Arab boycott. When President Carter signed the law, he said the “issue goes to the very heart of free trade among nations” and that it was designed to “end the divisive effects on American life of foreign boycotts aimed at Jewish members of our society.”

    The boycott has gradually crumbled and few countries outside the Middle East comply with it. The primary boycott—prohibiting direct relations between Arab countries and Israel—cracked when nations such as Qatar, Oman and Morocco negotiated deals with Israel. Saudi Arabia, pledged to end its economic boycott as a condition for membership in the World Trade Organization but, after winning acceptance, continued its prior policy. Meanwhile, the boycott remains technically in force. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org

    NOT once has Israel ever attacked any Arab nation since its official recognized Statehood in 1948, unless, it WAS first provoked by been ATTACKED, which HAS happened EVERY time since 1948, UNTIL TODAY.

    The ISSUE has never been any so-called Peace treaty, NO!NO!NO! The PLO et al Arab, Islamic nations, ALL, have openly DECLARED, they want Israel DESTROYED, ANNIHILATION of every Jew, and their ancient, 3000 year HOMELAND, the State of Israel.

    End OCCUPATION, the constant refrain of the Palestinians! Israel CANNOT occupy, WHAT IS THEIR by RIGHT, Historically, for OVER 3,000 YEARS!

    These are the FACTS, not the MYTHS, LIES, and HATRED of Islamists!

    MYTH
    “Arab governments recognized Israel after the Suez War.” top

    FACT
    Golan Heights, 1949-1967

    Israel consistently expressed a desire to negotiate with its neighbors. In an address to the UN General Assembly on October 10, 1960, Foreign Minister Golda Meir challenged Arab leaders to meet with Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to negotiate a peace settlement. Egyptian President Nasser answered on October 15, saying that Israel was trying to deceive the world, and reiterating that his country would never recognize the Jewish State.

    The Arabs were equally adamant in their refusal to negotiate a separate settlement for the refugees. Nasser made clear that solving the refugee issue was not his concern. “The danger of Israel,” he said, “lies in the very existence of Israel as it is in the present and in what she represents.”2

    Meanwhile, Syria used the Golan Heights, which tower 3,000 feet above the Galilee, to shell Israeli farms and villages. Syria’s attacks grew more frequent in 1965 and 1966, while Nasser’s rhetoric became increasingly bellicose: “We shall not enter Palestine with its soil covered in sand,” he said on March 8, 1965. “We shall enter it with its soil saturated in blood.”

    Again, a few months later, Nasser expressed the Arabs’ aspiration: “. . . the full restoration of the rights of the Palestinian people. In other words, we aim at the destruction of the State of Israel. The immediate aim: perfection of Arab military might. The national aim: the eradication of Israel.”

    MYTH
    “Israel’s military strike in 1967 was unprovoked.”

    FACT
    A combination of bellicose Arab rhetoric, threatening behavior and, ultimately, an act of war left Israel no choice but preemptive action. To do this successfully, Israel needed the element of surprise. Had it waited for an Arab invasion, Israel would have been at a potentially catastrophic disadvantage.

    In addition to Nasser’s verbal threats, Israel was under actual attack from Arab terrorists. In 1965, 35 raids were conducted against Israel. In 1966, the number increased to. In just the first four months of 1967, 37 attacks were launched.

    Meanwhile, Syria’s attacks on Israeli kibbutzim from the Golan Heights provoked a retaliatory strike on April 7, 1967, during which Israeli planes shot down six Syrian MiGs. Shortly thereafter, the Soviet Union—which had been providing military and economic aid to both Syria and Egypt—gave Damascus information alleging a massive Israeli military buildup in preparation for an attack. Despite Israeli denials, Syria decided to invoke its defense treaty with Egypt.

    On May 15, Israel’s Independence Day, Egyptian troops began moving into the Sinai and massing near the Israeli border. By May 18, Syrian troops were prepared for battle along the Golan Heights.

    Nasser ordered the UN Emergency Force, stationed in the Sinai since 1956, to withdraw on May 16. Without bringing the matter to the attention of the General Assembly, as his predecessor had promised, Secretary-General U Thant complied with the demand. After the withdrawal of the UNEF, the Voice of the Arabs proclaimed (May 18, 1967):

    As of today, there no longer exists an international emergency force to protect Israel. We shall exercise patience no more. We shall not complain any more to the UN about Israel. The sole method we shall apply against Israel is total war, which will result in the extermination of Zionist existence. 6

    An enthusiastic echo was heard on May 20 from Syrian Defense Minister Hafez Assad:

    Our forces are now entirely ready not only to repulse the aggression, but to initiate the act of liberation itself, and to explode the Zionist presence in the Arab homeland. The Syrian army, with its finger on the trigger, is united. . . . I, as a military man, believe that the time has come to enter into a battle of ANNIHILATION.

    On May 22, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to all Israeli shipping and all ships bound for Eilat. This blockade cut off Israel’s only supply route with Asia and stopped the flow of oil from its main supplier, Iran. The following day, President Johnson declared the blockade illegal and tried, unsuccessfully, to organize an international flotilla to test it.

    Nasser was fully aware of the pressure he was exerting to force Israel’s hand. The day after the blockade was set up, he said defiantly: “The Jews threaten to make war. I reply: Welcome! We are ready for war.”8

    Nasser challenged Israel to fight almost daily. “Our basic objective will be the DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL.” The Arab people want to fight,” he said on May 27.9 The following day, he added: “We will not accept any . . . ​coexistence with Israel . . . ​Today the issue is not the establishment of peace between the Arab states and Israel. . . . The war with Israel is in effect since 1948.” 10

    King Hussein of Jordan signed a defense pact with Egypt on May 30. Nasser then announced:

    The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel . . . ​to face the challenge, while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan and the whole Arab nation. This act will astound the world. Today they will know that the Arabs are arranged for battle, the critical hour has arrived. We have reached the stage of serious action and not declarations. 11

    President Abdur Rahman Aref of Iraq joined in the war of words: “The existence of Israel is an error which must be rectified. This is our opportunity to wipe out the ignominy which has been with us since 1948. Our goal is clear—”TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP”12 On June 4, Iraq joined the military alliance with Egypt, Jordan and Syria.

    The Arab rhetoric was matched by the mobilization of Arab forces. Approximately 250,000 troops (nearly half in Sinai), more than 2,000 tanks and 700 aircraft ringed Israel.

    By this time, Israeli forces had been on alert for three weeks. The country could not remain fully mobilized indefinitely, nor could it allow its sea lane through the Gulf of Aqaba to be interdicted. Israel’s best option was to strike first. On June 5, 1967, the order was given to attack Egypt.

    MYTH
    “Nasser had the right to close the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping.”

    FACT
    Israel, 1949-1967

    In 1956, the United States gave Israel assurances that it recognized the Jewish State’s right of access to the Straits of Tiran. In 1957, at the UN, 17 maritime powers declared that Israel had a right to transit the Strait. Moreover, the blockade violated the Convention on the Territorial Sea and Contiguous Zone, which was adopted by the UN Conference on the Law of the Sea on April 27, 1958.

    The closure of the Strait of Tiran was the casus belli in 1967. Israel’s attack was a reaction to this Egyptian first strike.

    President Johnson acknowledged as much after the war (June 19, 1967):

    If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision that the Strait of Tiran would be closed. The right of innocent maritime passage must be preserved for all nations.15

    MYTH
    “The United States helped Israel defeat the Arabs in six days.”

    FACT
    The United States tried to prevent the war through negotiations, but it could not persuade Nasser or the other Arab states to cease their belligerent statements and actions. Still, right before the war, President Johnson warned: “Israel will not be alone unless it decides to go alone.” 16 Then, when the war began, the State Department announced: “Our position is neutral in thought, word and deed.”

    Moreover, while the Arabs were falsely accusing the United States of airlifting supplies to Israel, Johnson imposed an arms embargo on the region (France, Israel’s other main arms supplier, also embargoed arms to Israel).

    By contrast, the Soviets were supplying massive amounts of arms to the Arabs. Simultaneously, the armies of Kuwait, Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Iraq were contributing troops and arms to the Egyptian, Syrian and Jordanian fronts.18

    The Battle for Sinai

    Battle for Jerusalem

    MYTH
    “Israel attacked Jordan to capture Jerusalem.”

    FACT
    Prime Minister Levi Eshkol sent a message to King Hussein saying Israel would not attack Jordan unless he initiated hostilities. When Jordanian radar picked up a cluster of planes flying from Egypt to Israel, and the Egyptians convinced Hussein the planes were theirs, he then ordered the shelling of West Jerusalem. It turned out the planes were Israel’s, and were returning from destroying the Egyptian air force on the ground. Meanwhile, Syrian and Iraqi troops attacked Israel’s northern frontier.

    Had Jordan not attacked, the status of Jerusalem would not have changed during the course of the war. Once the city came under fire, however, Israel needed to defend it, and, in doing so, took the opportunity to unify the city, ending Jordan’s 19-year occupation of the eastern part.

    MYTH
    “Israel did not have to fire the first shot in June 1967.”

    FACT
    By using the element of surprise, Israeli forces managed to break through the enemy lines after just six days of fighting and were in a position to march on Cairo, Damascus and Amman. A cease-fire was invoked on June 10.

    The victory came at a very high cost. In storming the Golan Heights, Israel suffered 115 dead—roughly the number of Americans killed during Operation Desert Storm. Altogether, Israel lost twice as many men—777 dead and 2,586 wounded—in proportion to her total population as the U.S. lost in eight years of fighting in Vietnam. Also, despite the incredible success of the air campaign, the Israeli Air Force lost 46 of its 200 fighters. Had Israel waited for the Arabs to strike first, as it did in 1973, and not taken preemptive action, the cost would certainly have been much higher and victory could not have been assured.

    MYTH
    “Israel expelled peaceful Arab villagers from the West Bank and prevented them from returning after the war.”

    FACT
    After Jordan launched its attack on June 5, approximately 325,000 Palestinians living in the West Bank fled. These were Jordanian citizens who moved from one part of what they considered their country to another, primarily to avoid being caught in the cross fire of a war.

    A Palestinian refugee who was an administrator in a UNRWA camp in Jericho said Arab politicians had spread rumors in the camp. “They said all the young people would be killed. People heard on the radio that this is not the end, only the beginning, so they think maybe it will be a long war and they want to be in Jordan.”

    Some Palestinians who left preferred to live in an Arab state rather than under Israeli military rule. Members of various PLO factions fled to avoid capture by the Israelis. Nils-Göran Gussing, the person appointed by the UN Secretary-General to investigate the situation, found that many Arabs also feared they would no longer be able to receive money from family members working abroad.

    Israeli forces ordered a handful of Palestinians to move for “strategic and security reasons.” In some cases, they were allowed to return in a few days, in others, Israel offered to help them resettle elsewhere.

    Israel now ruled more than three-quarters of a million Palestinians—most of whom were hostile to the government. Nevertheless, more than 9,000 Palestinian families were reunited in 1967. Ultimately, more than 60,000 Palestinians were allowed to return.

    After the Six-Day War ended, President Johnson announced his view of what was required next to end the conflict:

    “Certainly, troops must be withdrawn; but there must also be recognized rights of national life, progress in solving the refugee problem, freedom of innocent maritime passage, limitation of the arms race and respect for political independence and territorial integrity.”

    “The Arabs say they want their territory back, but they don’t want to talk to us, and they don’t want to negotiate with us, and they don’t want to recognize us. They want peace by immaculate conception.”

    …we have taken on the very systems and methods that THEY used to persecute us, as our new adopted ways… Loans; bling; greed….
    …we therefore LOOK UP TO THEM as mentors – which is why Arthur and now Froon have overseen the situation where EVERY SHIITE bout here is now being run by an albino….

    What absolute brass bowlery….
    The remnants of the people made in the VERY image of BBE…. are here in a ‘black country’ aspiring to be just like those who, like the Israelis, worship materialism and live under the protection of the soon-to-be-destroyed USA…..

    The Israelis may be the biggest hypocrites of all time….. But Bajans are definitely the biggest brass bowls of all eternity….

    @HOPI, Another LIE, concocted against the Jews, read the FACTS, not MYTHS, re the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion’!

    Anti-Semitism:
    History of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”

    The “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” the most notorious and most successful work of modern anti-Semitism, draws on popular anti-Semitic notions which have their roots in medieval Europe from the time of the Crusades. The libels that the Jews used blood of Christian children for the Feast of Passover, poisoned the wells and spread the plague were pretexts for the wholesale destruction of Jewish communities throughout Europe. Tales were circulated among the masses of secret rabbinical conferences whose aim was to subjugate and exterminate the Christians, and motifs like these are found in early antisemitic literature.

    The conceptual inspiration for the Protocols can be traced back to the time of the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century. At that time, a French Jesuit named Abbe Barruel, representing reactionary elements opposed to the revolution, published in 1797 a treatise blaming the Revolution on a secret conspiracy operating through the Order of Freemasons. Barruel’s idea was nonsense, since the French nobility at the time was heavily Masonic, but he was influenced by a Scottish mathematician named Robison who was opposed to the Masons. In his treatise, Barruel did not himself blame the Jews, who were emancipated as a result of the Revolution. However, in 1806, Barruel circulated a forged letter, probably sent to him by members of the state police opposed to Napoleon Bonaparte’s liberal policy toward the Jews, calling attention to the alleged part of the Jews in the conspiracy he had earlier attributed to the Masons. This myth of an international Jewish conspiracy reappeared later on in 19th century Europe in places such as Germany and Poland.

    The direct predecessor of the Protocols can be found in the pamphlet “Dialogues in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu,” published by the non­Jewish French satirist Maurice Joly in 1864. In his “Dialogues,” which make no mention of the Jews, Joly attacked the political ambitions of the emperor Napoleon III using the imagery of a diabolical plot in Hell. The “Dialogues” were caught by the French authorities soon after their publication and Joly was tried and sentenced to prison for his pamphlet.

    Joly’s “Dialogues,” while intended as a political satire, soon fell into the hands of a German anti-Semite named Hermann Goedsche writing under the name os Sir John Retcliffe. Goedsche was a postal clerk and a spy for the Prussian secret police. He had been forced to leave the postal work due to his part in forging evidence in the prosecution against the Democratic leader Benedict Waldeck in 1849. Goedsche adapted Joly’s “Dialogues” into a mythical tale of a Jewish conspiracy as part of a series of novels entitled “Biarritz,” which appeared in 1868. In a chapter called “The Jewish Cemetery in Prague and the Council of Representatives of the Twelve Tribes of Israel,” he spins the fantasy of a secret centennial rabbinical conference which meets at midnight and whose purpose is to review the past hundred years and to make plans for the next century.

    Goedsche’s plagiary of Joly’s “Dialogues” soon found its way to Russia. It was translated into Russian in 1872, and a consolidation of the “council of representatives” under the name “Rabbi’s Speech” appeared in Russian in 1891. These works no doubt furnished the Russian secret police (Okhrana) with a means with which to strengthen the position of the weak Czar Nicholas II and discredit the reforms of the liberals who sympathized with the Jews. During the Dreyfus case of 1893­1895, agents of the Okhrana in Paris redacted the earlier works of Joly and Goedsche into a new edition which they called the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” The manuscript of the Protocols was brought to Russia in 1895 and was printed privately in 1897.

    The Protocols did not become public until 1905, when Russia’s defeat in the Russo-Japanese War was followed by the Revolution in the same year, leading to the promulgation of a constitution and institution of the Duma. In the wake of these events, the reactionary “Union of the Russian Nation” or Black Hundreds organization sought to incite popular feeling against the Jews, who they blamed for the Revolution and the Constitution. To this end they used the Protocols, which was first published in a public edition by the mystic priest Sergius Nilus in 1905. The Protocols were part of a propaganda campaign that accompanied the pogroms of 1905 inspired by the Okhrana. A variant text of the Protocols was published by George Butmi in 1906 and again in 1907. The edition of 1906 was found among the Czar’s collection, even though he had already recognized the work as a forgery. In his later editions, Nilus claimed that the Protocols had been read secretly at the First Zionist Congress at Basle in 1897, while Butmi, in his edition, wrote that they had no connection with the new Zionist movement, but, rather, were part of the Masonic conspiracy.

    In the civil war following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the reactionary White Armies made extensive use of the Protocols to incite widespread slaughters of Jews. At the same time, Russian emigrants brought the Protocols to western Europe, where the Nilus edition served as the basis for many translations, starting in 1920. Just after its appearance in London in 1920, Lucien Wolf exposed the Protocols as a plagiary of the earlier work of Joly and Goedsche, in a pamphlet of the Jewish Board of Deputies. The following year, in 1921, the story of the forgery was published in a series of articles in the London Times by Philip Grave, the paper’s correspondent in Constantinople.

    A whole book documenting the forgery was also published in the same year in the United States by Herman Bernstein (The Truth About “The Protocols of Zion.” Reprinted with an introduction by Norman Cohn. NY: Ktav Publishing House, 1971). Nevertheless, the Protocols continued to circulate widely. They were even sponsored by Henry Ford in the United States until 1927, and formed an important part of the Nazis’ justification of genocide of the Jews in the Holocaust. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org

    Sorry David, I did not submit the last post in that manner, I don’t know what went wrong!

    BTW, these so-called modern day Palestinians, are really Syrians, Egyptians, Jordanians, and so on, who have been USED by their Arab brothers, for selfish political ends, who could have CREATED easily a Palestinian state for them, from the MILLIONS of square miles of land, they collectively have.

    But, NO, they prefer to keep their Palestinian brothers in Refugee camps, making Israel look like the the one to blame.

    Khaled Al-Azm, who was Syria’s Prime Minister after the 1948 war, deplored the Arab tactics and the subsequent exploitation of the refugees, in his 1972 memoirs:

    “Since 1948 it is WE who demanded the return of the refugees…while it is WE who made them LEAVE…We brought disaster upon…Arab refugees, by INVITING them and bringing pressure to bear upon them to LEAVE…WE have rendered them DISPOSSESSED…WE have accustomed them to BEGGING…WE have participated in lowering their moral and social level…then we EXPLOITED them in executing crimes of murder, arson, and throwing bombs upon…men, women and children— all this in the service of political purposes…”(From Time Immemorial, The Origins of The Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine, p.16) Emphasis added.

    In 1958, former director of UNRWA Ralph Galloway declared angrily while in Jordan that:

    “The Arab states do NOT want to solve the refugee problem. They WANT to keep it an OPEN SORE, as an affront to the United Nations, and as a WEAPON against Israel. Arab leaders do NOT give a damn whether Arab refugees live or DIE.” (Ibid., p.23) Emphasis added.

    And King Hussein, the sole Arab leader who, for reasons that latter become clearer, directed integration of the Arabs, in 1960 stated:

    “Since 1948, Arab leaders have approached the Palestinian problem is an IRRESPONSIBLE manner…They have USED the Palestine people for SELFISH political purposes. This is rediculous and, I could say, even CRIMINAL.” ( Ibid., p.23) Emphasis added.

    THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS MANDATE

    The boundaries of this new nation were codified and APPROVED unanimously by the League of Nations, (precursor to the UN) three years after the Balfour Declaration, Britain was given the authority over the entire Middle East, from the Mediterranean to the borders of India. The territory to become the state of Israel – then variously referred to as “Palestine” “Western Palestine,” “South Syria” or even part of Turkey, extended east and west of the Jordan River from the Mediterranean to Arabia and Iraq, and north and south from Egypt to Lebanon and Syria. on present day maps, that includes most of the Arab nation of Jordan, southern Lebanon and the Sinai.

    Simultaneously, independent Arab statehood was being granted in Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The land originally given to Israel, was considerably bigger than today’s Jewish state, even including the territories captured in June 1967. Evidence shows Arab leaders were initially satisfied with their acquisition and did NOT question the status of the Jewish state.

    The Arab’s felt magnanimous at the time, because they had just emerged from centuries of Ottoman Turkish occupation, wherein they owned NOTHING! Suddenly Britain hands them an enormous gift, and YET, they did little to earn it. This is why Lord Balfour could not imagine they would “begrudge the small notch of land” the Jews were given.

    Britain Gives Away 75 percent of the Jews’ Mandated Land!

    it wasn’t long, however, before Abdullah, brother of Feisal ibn Hussein, decided he should have Transjordan (now Jordan) as his Kingdom. He protested to the British who UNILATERALLY decided to CARVE out of the Jewish State, 75 percent of its MANDATED territory, then known as Transjordan, and hand it over to Abdullah.

    The POINT is, that the League of Nations Mandate for Israel remained unchanged, even though Britain had unilaterally altered its map and its purpose. The Mandate included Transjordan until 1946, when that land was declared an independent state.

    In truth in in FACT, Transjordan had FINALLY become the de jure Arab state in Palestine just two years before Israel gained its Jewish statehood, in the remaining one-quarter of Palestine.

    Transjordan comprised nearly 38,000 square miles, Israel, less than 8,000 square miles.

    BRITAIN VIOLATED ITS MANDATE.

    When Britain gave Transjordan to Abdullah, it specifically VIOLATED Article 5 of the Mandate given unanimous approval bt the League of Nations at the San Remo Conference on July 24, 1922.

    The local British officials of the Foreign Office GROSSLY violated the main premise for Britain being given the Mandate by the League of Nations. They were specifically charged with ONLY facilitating the immigration of Jews to populate and settle the land granted as their homeland. Britain had explicit instructions NOT to allow or facilitate more immigration of Arabs into the new Jewish state.

    THE REAL PALESTINIAN STATE

    The historical footnote to the Arab-Israeli conflict serves to shatter another Muslim MYTH. The modern-day Royal Kingdom of Jordan WAS and IS* clearly an independent PALESTINIAN STATE. Geographically it spans MOST of the land once called Palestine. Its population is largely made up of so-called “Palestinians.” Abdullah and other Arab leaders ADMITTED as much in 1948 prior to launching their WAR of aggression AGAINST the new state of Israel.

    Western media thought Ariel Sharon was being sarcastic and evasive when a newsman asked him if he would give the Palestinians a state. He answered, “There already IS* a state of Palestine, its called Jordan It sounded preposterous to the reporters, as most of them HAD no knowledge of the area’s history. But Sharon not only knows that history well, he his a living witness of it.

    “Palestine and Transjordan are ONE, for Palestine is the coastline and Transjordan the hinterland of the same country.” said Abdullah. His Prime Minister, Hazza al-Majali, went even further, “We ARE the army of Palestine…the overwhelming majority of the Palestine Arabs are living in Jordan.” (THE EVERLASTING HATRED, THE ROOTS OF JIHAD, pp. 191-200) Emphasis added.

    Facts become credible FACTS, when they are warranted to the relevant degree of certainty.

    Zoe, please answer the following question:

    Are the modern-day Jews- especially those now occupying the land called Israel- the genetic offspring or descendants of those that lived in that same territory as recorded in the Judeo-Christian Bible? Are these same Jews the modern progeny of the people enslaved in Egypt for over 400 years living in the hot boiling sun and taken to the Promised Land by the legendary hero Moses?

    Are the modern Jews (some with blond hair and blue eyes) able to trace their genetic roots back to the 12 biblical tribes just like how black Bajans can trace their genetic roots to West Africa or white Bajans to Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
    If your answer is “Yes”, then one can argue Australia was settled by the white man long before the aborigines who are just immigrants from Africa or noir nouveaux arrivants.

    …mitochondrial DNA is passed along the maternal line. Its variation in the Ashkenazim is highly distinctive, with four major and numerous minor founders … we show that all four major founders, ~40% of Ashkenazi mtDNA variation, have ancestry in prehistoric Europe, rather than the Near East or Caucasus. Furthermore, most of the remaining minor founders share a similar deep European ancestry. Thus the great majority of Ashkenazi maternal lineages were not brought from the Levant, as commonly supposed, nor recruited in the Caucasus, as sometimes suggested, but assimilated within Europe.

For all intents and purposes, they shoot people and mek up noise (cos that what this argument sounds like to me) because the people retaliate.

    @Miller, I have a deep and abiding conviction for standing with Israel, the following is the Scriptural basis, for this deep conviction, which you’ll as usual reject, because you just do NOT, and cannot understand!

    Why Stand With Israel Today?

    Israel is a land about which God says uniquely, prophetically, redemptively, and repeatedly in the Bible This is Mine. God refers to Israel as He does to no other land on Earth. Israel was raised up to be a light to the Gentiles.

    The Church at its inception was virtually entirely Jewish, and it remained so until the Gospel began to spread. Ultimately the Gospel spread to Antioch, where the first Gentile congregation began, the base from which the Gospel spread into all the world.

    In the book of Romans, chapters 9 through 11, the apostle Paul deals with the question of the Jews in God’s providence and purpose. Within the whole of the Bible, these three chapters virtually stand alone as an elaboration of the theology of God’s dealing with Jews.

    The Jews were the “firstfruit” …the “first people” (through Abraham) to understand a covenant God. They then relayed the riches of that truth to the world, and through their agency, the Messiah came into the world.

    The Word of God calls Jews the “root” and Gentiles the “branches.” We’re reminded that while “because of unbelief, some of them were broken off and you stand by faith,” we are not to become haughty but to fear: “For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.” When the fullness of the Gentiles is completed, “all Israel will be saved.” (Romans 11:16-27)

    So why stand with Israel today?

    We are living in a sobering moment in history that calls us, as believers in Jesus Christ, to take a stand with Israel. We could be people of the last hour. We are not to be passive in the face of prophecy; we are called to pray with passion, to intercede, and to minister according to the words of the Savior who said it is not our task to speculate when the end will be. It is our responsibility to do Kingdom business until He comes (Luke 19:13).

    This is not about politics; this is about the Word of God, but the political ramifications are extremely dramatic. Scripture declares there will come a time when all the nations of the world will turn against Israel. It is so highly conceivable this could happen in our time that it is critical to outline why we should stand with Israel today.

    Eight Reasons for Standing With Israel

    Every believer is charged to make the Jews a priority in their value system and to render thanksgiving from their hearts for God?s work via them as a people.

    Understanding the basis of the attention that we give to the Jews has to do with understanding God’s divine order and things that God said. It involves a people and a land.

    -Every believer is charged to make Jews a priority in their value system because God has.

    -The Lord selected a people…He began by selecting a man named Abraham. The Lord said that through the seed of Abraham (in relationship with his wife, Sarah, giving birth to the promised child, Isaac) all the nations of the Earth will be blessed…every human being having access to the divine blessing of Almighty God.

    -In Genesis 12:3, the Lord says in the covenant He makes with Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

    -This relates not only to a people (the Jews), but it also relates to a land (Israel).

    -God will judge nations and deal with them for their decisions, just as He does individuals.

    -The Lord chose them for purposes: “…who are the Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen.” (Romans 9:4)

    -The Adoption: God’s divine choice of the seed of Abraham as a people.

    -The Glory: the manifest presence of God revealing Himself.

    -The Covenants: commitments that God makes:

    -The Abrahamic Covenant: God says, “I will give you a people and a land, and through this seed the nations of the Earth will be blessed.” (Genesis 17)

    -The Mosaic Covenant: The revelation of the law, given as a teaching means to lead us to Christ: redemption through the blood of the Lamb.

    -The New Covenant: In Jeremiah and Ezekiel, God says in words almost parallel: “For the time will come that I will take My law and I will make a new covenant with you, and I will put My Spirit within you.”

    -The Greatest Gift: the wonder of the gift of Jesus to mankind. “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” He gave Him through the Jews, and He came as a Jew. Jesus Himself, speaking to the woman of Samaria, said, “Salvation is of the Jews.”

    So Scripture speaks to us very clearly: We’re dealing with the roots of everything that has to do with the revelation of God to humankind. The proof of this is in the very existence of the Jews as a people and the fact that they’ve been recovered as a nation. Today the struggle is over Jerusalem, over Israel, and over the presence of Jews and their right to have a land. There are few nations willing to make an abiding commitment to stand by the Jews and Israel, but the Bible says God will honor those who do.

    Our place in God’s present order inextricably links us with the Jews as a people, and thereby the land of Israel, according to the Word.

    When we put our faith in the Redeemer who came through the Jews, we enter into a line of those who have trusted God according to His revealed grace and redemptive purpose.

    -Scripture declares that, spiritually speaking, when you receive the Lord, you become a Jew (Romans 2:28-29; Galatians 3:26-29).
    -If you are a believer, you cannot be consistent with the whole of Scripture and take a position that is passive toward the Jews and Israel.
    

    God has made unique declarations regarding the land of Israel which have never been rescinded:

    -Leviticus 25:23 – The land is the Lord’s land, and it is His to assign and dispose of: “The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine…”
    -Deuteronomy 32:43 – “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people…He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”
    -2 Chronicles 7:20 – God says if the people violate Me “…I will uproot them from My land which I have given them…”
    -Psalm 85:1-2 – “Lord, You have been favorable to Your land; You have brought back the captivity of Jacob. You have forgiven the iniquity of Your people; You have covered all their sin.”
    -Isaiah 8:8 – This land belongs to Father God and it is the land of His Messiah: “…and the stretching out of his wings will fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanuel.”
    -Jeremiah 2:7 – The Lord tells the people why there will come the loss, the destruction of the city of Jerusalem. “I brought you into a bountiful country…but when you entered, you defiled my land and made my heritage an abomination.”

    Ezekiel 38:16 – God is speaking to people in the end times who rise up against Israel. God is speaking of a confrontation that will take place in His land. “You will come up against My people Israel…I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you…”
    Joel 1:6, 2:18, 3:2 – Three times in this book, the land is referred to as belonging to the Lord. “For a nation has come up against My land…” (1:6) “Then the Lord will be zealous for His land…” (2:18) “I will gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.” (3:2)
    -Hosea 9:3 – This refers to the scattering of Israel: “They shall not dwell in the Lord’s land, but Ephraim shall return to Egypt, and shall eat unclean things in Assyria.”
    -Zechariah 9:16 – “The Lord their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people, for they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land…”

    When we talk about Israel, we are dealing with: 1) a piece of property that God has made pronouncements about and 2) God’s people to whom He’s given the land. It is a major issue with the Creator of all things, and it is non-negotiable. Things that God has said uniquely about Israel have never been rescinded.

    -Not only does the land belong to God, but also God has committed the land to Abraham and his offspring via Isaac forever. (Genesis 17:7-8)
    -"With a little wrath I hid My face from you...but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed..." (Isaiah 54:8-10)
    -The loss of governance by Israel through sin and dispersion has not altered God's announced commitment to make it theirs forever.  (Read Ezekiel 37:1-28).
    

    Israel’s present conflict is neither by their initiative nor perpetuated by expansionism or racism on their part.

    The general attitude of the world today regards the Palestinians as the underdog, but Israel is defending the land covenanted to them in 1917 and established by the United Nations Assembly in 1948. The Palestinian goal is not to secure a homeland but to drive Israel out altogether. For the sake of mounting public opinion against Israel, surrounding, well-resourced Arab nations have never offered refuge to the Palestinians. The majority of the world doesn’t know this, and nobody is bothering to tell them because sympathies are so overridden by other forces.

    To stand with Israel is not to oppose Arab peoples as an entity nor to oppose the rights of Arabs living in Israel to a peaceful, politically secure, and prosperous life.

    God has no disposition against any human being, certainly not Arabs who are the offspring of, Ishmael, the other son of His chosen leader Abraham. Standing for Israel doesn’t require an anti-Arab stance and doesn’t require us to be loveless toward other peoples.

    The relentless animosities of sectors of the Arab world are not merely political causes but are driven by spiritual powers that will not be satisfied until Israel ceases to exist.

    The forces opposed to Israel are not simply those of people who don’t like Jews. We are caught in the stream of spiritual forces greater than humanity, forces that cannot be overthrown politically or by the power of persuasion. These forces can only be broken by intercessory prayer where principalities and powers are cast down.

    The same spirit driving these animosities is equally opposed to Christians as to Jews, and in time will eventually bring persecution to both.

    Just as Scripture states there are two witnesses that will be put to death in Jerusalem at the very end of time (Revelation 11), there have been two witnesses that have stood for God throughout history: the Jews and the Christians.

    The hostilities and animosities are just as leveled at believers as they are at Israel, because there is a spirit in the world that is against all that is called God and everything about Him.

    -God as Creator - to Whom we owe our worship.
    -God as Judge - to Whom we owe our accountability.
    -God as Redeemer - Who has shown Himself through His Son, Jesus.
    -God as the moral Lawgiver of all humanity - to Whom we owe a responsibility in terms of our behavior.
    

    A biblical assignment and a divine promise summon our stand in faith, our intercession with expectancy, and our support with promise.

    We are called to stand with Israel today because we could be people of the last hour. The Lord has called us to be people with moral and biblical conviction, walking wisely and knowing His Word. He will honor those who make an abiding commitment to stand with the land He’s called uniquely His (Psalm 122:6). http://www.jackhayford.org

Risk is increased by the dress fashions that allow more of the body and skin to be exposed to the sun than is customary in neighboring countries”

    4 Israelis Arrested For Savage Hate Crimes Against African Refugees
    Shmarya Rosenbrg • FailedMessiah.com

    Four Israeli men in Tel Aviv allegedly beat and robbed African refugees in gruesome string of racially-motivated attacks, the Jerusalem Post reported.

    The men, all in their early twenties, were arrested Monday. They allegedly attacked Africans walking in South Tel Aviv, beating them with bottles and sticks, “using great cruelty,” police reportedly said.

    Robbing the Africans was not a priority for the men, who out of racial hatred primarily wanted to terrorize the African refugee community. The robberies were an afterthought.

    In April, police in Tel Aviv arrested five other Israeli males, two of them minors, for carrying out a series of similar attacks on African refugees in south Tel Aviv. But in two of those incidents, the arrested men mistakenly beat Ethiopian Jews – including one who was so badly beaten, he was hospitalized with a head injury.

    n Acts 21:37 – 39 we read of this encounter
    that tells the world the complexion of the Apostle
    Paul. 37 And as Paul was to be led into the
    castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I
    speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak
    Greek?

    38 Art not thou that Egyptian, which before
    these days madest an uproar, and leddest out
    into the wilderness four thousand men that were
    murderers?

    39 But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of
    Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city:
    and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto
    the people.
    In that short conversation, we can glimpse some
    information about Paul. You can see, the
    captain of the guard who may have been a white
    man mistook Paul for an African because of how
    he looked in complexion.
    Even so, some diehard ones may still be
    thinking; “Paul may have been one of just a few
    who were black among the millions Jews, who
    were white.”
    “Not true!” According to Roman historians at
    the time. Tacitus the Roman historian wrote:

    “The Jews of AD 90 and abounding in
    Europe were called Ethiopians.”

    Note: At that time in history, the continent was
    not called Africa and black people were
    universally known as Ethiopians.
    AD 90 is not long after the death of Christ. Therefore, since Jews during the Romans times looked like
    Ethiopians, aka black people. Then for sure, the Jews were Ethiopian or dark skinned looking long before
    the birth of Christ. This means Jesus himself was a black man.
    As you can see it was not an isolated case of the Roman officer who mistook the Apostle Paul for a dark
    skinned African. According to the historian Tacitus, all of ancient Rome identified the Jews as Ethiopians
    aka black Africans.

    Hebrews, Egyptians, Edomites, Babylonians, Ethiopians , Nubians etc. are black skinned nations.

    Laban was the Uncle of Esau / Edom, Laban means white.
    The word for white skin in Hebrew is laban, it means white or becoming white.  Laban is used in Exodus 4: where Yah tells Moses to put his hand into his bosom, and it turns white as Snow.  Laban is also used to describe Moses sister Miriam when Yah struck her with Leprosy and turned her entire body white (Numbers 12).  It’s used once again to describe Gheazi being stricken with Leprosy and having his skin turn white in 2nd kings 5:27.

    Rebekah, the wife of Isaac, and the Mother of Jacob and Esau had a brother name Laban. Laban was an albino, a black person born with white skin. Hint the reason for the name Laban or White.

    root” albho (white) .  The ALBINO is white.

      לבן La[V]aN or LaBHaN is white (Genesis 30:37); הלבנה HaLBaNaH means whitening :

      ” . . .though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow (YaLBeNoo)” — Isaiah1:180.

    LEBANON is named for its landmark white, snow-capped mountains. 

    Cesare Borgia was one homosexual lover of Leonardo Di Vinci. He posed for Leonardo Di Vinci and during the Renaissance the pictures drawn of him became the model for the pagan idol “white Jesus” we see everywhere today.

    Psalm 105:23,27 — 23 “ISRAEL ALSO CAME INTO EGYPT; AND SOJOURNED IN THE LAND OF HAM (KHAWM).”

    Verse 27 “THEY SHOWED HIS SIGNS AMONG THEM, AND WONDERS IN THE LAND OF HAM (KHAWM).”

    The scriptures calls Egypt the land of Khawm, and remember one of the meanings of Khawm is black, the scriptures are calling Egypt “The Land of Black” which is what Khemet means. Egypt is called the land of Khawm because the Egyptians were descendants of Noah’s son Khawm. This is more than likely the reason they called themselves Khemet. Scripture supports the fact that the Egyptians were a black-skinned people.

    In the book of Amos chapter 9: we will now see Israel being compared to Ham (Khawm) first born son Cush / Ethiopians.

    Verse 7 says “ARE YOU NOT AS CHILDREN OF THE ETHIOPIANS UNTO ME, O CHILDREN OF ISRAEL?”…

    In this Verse, the Israelites are being called children of the Ethiopians by the Most High. The Ethiopians are a known black-skinned people, and the most high is calling Israel their children. How much sense would it make to call a white skinned people, CHILDREN OF THE ETHIOPIANS? The majority of Jews today are white-skin. If ancient Israel were a white skinned people, wouldn’t it make more sense to compare them to a white skin nation. This verse does not say,
    “ARE YOU NOT AS CHILDREN OF THE ROMANS / GREEKS / GENTILES UNTO ME O CHILDREN OF ISRAEL?”
    It clearly compares Israel with a black skinned people. The reason for this is simple. Israel was and is a black skinned people, and the majority of them still are.

    A Roman historian named Tacitus who lived about C.E. 90 said, “Many assert that the Hebrews are an RACE OF ETHIOPIAN ORIGINS.”

    Lamentations 5:10 reads:

    “OUR SKIN WAS BLACK LIKE AN OVEN BECAUSE OF THE TERRIBLE FAMINE.”

    Notice, it says here that the Hebrews’ skin was black like an oven or charcoal black, because of the famine. When the Jews were in concentration camps in Europe during WWII, many of them were starved or in famine. Footage of them in the camps, show that their skin turned pale white. The same is true of the people in Kosov. They were in famine and their skin turned pale white, because they are also a white-skinned people. But pictures of starving people in Africa, show that their skin turns jet black or darker than its original hue.

    Who are the Jews?
    “Many, again, say that they were a race of Ethiopian origin, who in the time of king Cepheus were driven by fear and hatred of their neighbors to seek a new dwelling-place.”
    Source: Modern Jewish History:
    Tacitus on the Jews
    (c. 110 CE).

    The original Jews in Africa 2000 years ago were a Black African people as an ethnic group. (Massey: Egypt Light of the Word p.501) Many of them still are Black, in northern Africa such as the Falasha Jews of Ethiopia.

    In Acts 21:37 – 39 we read of this encounter
    that tells the world the complexion of the Apostle
    Paul.
    37 And as Paul was to be led into the

    Since the biblical Egyptians were a black-skinned people, Joseph had to be black-skinned also. If he were white skinned,  his brothers would have recognized him easily among the “black” Egyptians.  His brothers  thought Joseph was another Egyptian.

    The ancient Egyptians of Joseph time were indeed what we know today as “black”,  this is a fact attested to by many.

    Gerald Massey, English writer and author of the book, Egypt the Light of the World, wrote, “The dignity is so ancient that the insignia of the Pharaoh evidently belonged to the time when Egyptians wore nothing but the girdle of the Negro.” (p 251)

    Sir Richard Francis Burton, a 19th century English explorer, writer and linguist in 1883 wrote to Gerald Massey, “You are quite right about the “AFRICAN” origin of the Egyptians. I have 100 human skulls to prove it.”

    Scientist, R. T. Prittchett, states in his book The Natural History of Man, “In their complex and many of the complexions and in physical peculiarities the Egyptians were an “AFRICAN” race (p 124-125).

    The Ancient Greek historian Herodotus, who visited Egypt in the 5th century B.C.E., saw the Egyptians face to face and described them as black-skinned with woolly hair.

    Anthropologist, Count Constatin de Volney (1727-1820),spoke about the race of the Egyptians that produced the Pharaohs. He later paid tribute to Herodotus’ discovery when he said:

    The ancient Egyptians were true Negroes of the same type as all native born Africans. That being so, we can see how their blood mixed for several centuries with that of the Romans and Greeks, must have lost the intensity of it’s original color, while retaining none the less the imprint of it’s original mold. We can even state as a general principle that the face (referring to The Sphinx) is a kind of monument able, in many cases, to attest to or shed light on historical evidence on the origins of the people.”

    The fact that the ancient Egyptians were black-skin prompted Volney to make the following statement:
    “What a subject for meditation, just think that the race of black men today our slaves and the object of our scorn, is the very race to which we owe our arts, science and even the use of our speech.”

    The testimony of the ancients, the scriptures, & many Egyptologists, along with archaeology confirms that the Egyptians during biblical times were a “BLACK” PEOPLE. This is important to know, as we continue, we’ll see that the bible on multiple occasions describes the ancient Hebrews as looking like the Egyptians in physical appearance.

    Next, in Genesis chapter 50 verses 7-11, scripture will describes ALL the Hebrews as looking like the ancient Egyptians.

    After Jacob (who’s name was changed to Ysrayl – Israel) died in the land of Egypt, all the Hebrews and Egyptians went down to the land of Canaan to bury him (He asked his son to bury him in the land of Canaan with his forefathers Genesis 49:29-30).

    Verses 7-8, states that all the elders of Pharaoh’s house and all the elders of the land of Egypt along with all the Hebrews (except for their small children) went down.
    VERSE 9 says, “It was a very great company.”
    VERSE 11 says, that the Canaanite saw the funeral procession and said “THIS IS A GRIEVOUS MOURNING TO THE EGYPTIANS”.
    But, remember this was a mixed multitude of Hebrews and Egyptians going to bury a HEBREW, and the Canaanite identified them both as Egyptians. WHY? Because, the Canaanite saw a great company of black-skinned people who all look like native (black) Egyptians.

    If the Hebrews were a white skinned people, as we have been led to believe. The Canaanite who were familiar with both the Hebrews and Egyptians would have acknowledged them both by saying, “THIS IS A GRIEVOUS MOURNING TO THE EGYPTIANS AND HEBREWS.”  Without doubt white Hebrews would have stuck out like a sore thump among the black Egyptians.  The Canaanites never Identified the Hebrews separately from the Egyptians.  Since it was a Hebrew being buried you know the Israelites were the ones who were mourning the greatest.  The Canaanites seen this and though those Israelites in mourning were Egyptians. 

    The scripture goes on to say that the Canaanite named the place where they saw this great mourning for a HEBREW Abel Mizraim which means the meadow of Egypt/Mizraim or Mourning of the Egyptians.Zoe please comment.

    But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
    22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
    25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
