The viciously anti-Israel “Irish Examiner.com” has printed the following in its article of today:
The Palestinians are ready to end all historic claims against Israel once they establish their state in the lands occupied in the 1967 Six-Day War, President Mahmoud Abbas said.
The above quote from the Irish Examiner is extremely misleading.
What we have in this case, as expressed above, is the complete re-writing of history. This is a lying narrative which was put about by the Arab propaganda machine after 1967, and which has been adopted by the world in general.
Why should the world take on board as true a narrative which tells lies about history? I can only locate this tendency to accept this lying narrative in a residual antisemitism which bubbles under the surface, during centuries of time, but which bursts out with poisonous venom at particular points.
We know that such a point was the Holocaust, or as Jews tend to say, The Shoah.
But another point was the 1960s, when the Soviet Union Stalinists attacked Israel as a Zionist, therefore Nazi, State.
In other words Zionism, which is the sincere feeling of Jews to return to Zion, their religious and national Homeland, was being equated with Nazism, by the horrible Soviet Stalinists (I should say Russian, because they should not be given the title of “Soviet”, which is a proud title in our books.
In any case the world adopted this Big Lie in different ways.
One of these ways is reflected in the above paragraph I have quoted by the Irish Examiner.
Not that this may be unconscious on their part. In other words the lying narrative of the Stalinists and the Arabs is so ingrained in Irish Media Circles, that they know not of what they write.
Let me return to the above paragraph:
The Irish Examiner use the word “Palestinians”.
They did not exist in 1948. Up to 1948 if you said you were a Palestinian then people would take you for a Jew, a palestinian Jew.
Up to 1948 the Arabs disliked the term “Palestinian” and called themselves simply “Arabs”.
From 1948 to 1967 when Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria, and Egypt Gaza, THEY CERTAINLY DID NOT USE THE TERM “PALESTINIANS”.
Nor was there the merest tiniest suggestion then of creating a “Palestinian State” which would have been the ideal time, when fellow Arabs were in total control.
Amazing thought that, eh!
The Arabs attacked the Jews in 1948, not accepting the UN plans for 2 states.
The Arabs lost in 1948 and there was a ceasefire arrangement.
In 1967 the Arabs attacked the Jews again, but this time they were attacking Israel itself, and they were attacking from those very territories of Judea and Samaria, and Gaza.
They lost again.
I repeat to the Irish Examiner. THEY LOST!
The Arabs lost in a war in which THEY WERE THE AGRESSOR.
The Arabs, and the anti Israel Irish Examiner, want to have their cake and eat it. They want to strike out in a genocidal war against Jews and then after they are defeated in that war they expect things to go back to where things were BEFORE THEY ATTACKED
To me this is the strangest thinking…That there is never any effect following a cause.
This is also the reason why we on 4international will always deny the validity of the word “occupation” because how is it an “occupation” to repulse your genocidal attackers. Just as brian Boru did in Clontarf outside Dublin you take the land on which your enemy is standing, and you deny your enemy the opportunity, or wish, to attack again from that land.
And this was Jewish land in every sense of the term anyway, through the Treaty of San Remo 1920, where this land of Judea and Samaria was set aside for the Jewish Homeland.
The Irish Examiner has another paragraph:
The Palestinians want to establish a state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in 1967. Israel has withdrawn from Gaza, but about half a million Israelis have settled in the other war-won areas.
You can see the utterly snivelling dishonesty of the Irish Examiner in the above. The impression is given to me as a reader that the Jews attacked and captured Judea and Samaria, plus Gaza. But they did not attack anything or anybody. It is they who were attacked.
The Jews were only defending in 1948 and 1967.
By reading the Irish Examiner you would never know, or think that.
This is really terrible journalism. Journalism of a very low level. There is a serious distortion of history taking place here.
Now if this is happening in this very central journalistic outlet in Ireland, how can the Irish people think in true terms about what happened in this vital history?
Or perhaps the Irish Examiner is really saying that History Does not Matter. That all that matters is “The Occupation”, even though this word is a distortion of history
