The "Final Solution" of Jewish Existance in Palestine by Palestinians / Dr.Rivka Shpak Lissak

A. History

The Palestinian "narrativ" tells the Holy Land was an Arabic Land from time immemorial, that the Jews invented their connection to this land, that they are European colonialists who robed Arab land, expelled its peaceful ancient inhabitants and turned them into refugees.

The Palestinian "narrative" is an effort to rewrite history in order to eliminate the Jewish state, Israel. The facts of history are entirely different.

The Jews are descendants of the Israel/ Judea ancient inhabitants of the Holy Land. They lived in this country from the 18th century BCE on, and were the majority of the population from the 13th century BCE until their majority was eliminated by the Roman Empire in 135 CE.

The Roman Empire crushed the rebellious Judean population, by killing thousands of their freedom fighters, enslaving thousands of their war prisoners, massacring thousands of civilians and forcing many others to ran away to save their lives or because of religious persecution and land confiscation. They changed the name of the country from Judea to Philstine, to eliminate any clue to Jewish existance. Instead, they continued the colonization of the country, started by Alexander the Great in the 4th century BCE, by Greeks, Macedonians, Romans and Syrian- Armenians.

Thus, from more than 3,000,000 Jews in the first century BCE , only about 700,000 survived by the 2nd century CE, and their number was further reduced to about 150,000 – 200,000 by the 6th century CE, by the same policy conducted by the Byzantine Empire.

The colonizers were converted to Christianity and became the majority of the population until the 14th century CE, when the Mamluks, Muslims of Turcman origin, took the country from the Crusaders and turned the christians into a minority. Many were massacred, many ran away, many died in the black plague and some were forced to convert to Islam.

In the 16th century, when the Ottomans took the country from the Mamluks, the country was populated by only about 200,000 inhabitants, mostly Bedouin- Arabs. Although Arabs and Muslims were invited to settle in the country by the Mamluks, the mass immigration of Arabs and Muslims took place between the end of the 19th century and the middle of the 20th century, when the Zionist movement and the British Mandate created new jobs. They were work immigrants.

B. How the Israeli- Palestinian problem was created

In 1917, the British government issued the Balfur Declaration in which it recognized the historical connection of the Jews to Palestine and promised a National Home to the Jews. After First World War, the League of Nation adopted the Balfur Declaration and gave the mandate to make the country a National Home for the Jews to the British government. The Arabs were given civilian rights.

But, the Arabs refused to accept the League of Nations' resolution and started a continuous war against the growing Jewish population. The situation became impossible and a British investigation committee, the Peel Committee decided in 1936/7 to divide the country into 2 states: a Jewish and an Arab state. The Arabs rejected the plan, the Jews accepted, although Trans- Jordan was given earlier, without the consent of the League of Nations, to the Arabs. The Arabs got most of the territory of the Mandate.

Second World War changed all decisions. The British government needed the support of the Arabs in the Middle East and promised the Arabs Palestine in exchange for their support against Germany. But, the Arabs decided to support Hitler. The Mufti, Hag' Amin Al- Hussaini, the leader of the Arabs of Palestine, became a close ally of Hitler. He supported the Final Solution of the Jewish in Europe and even visited a concentration camp.

The same fate was planned for the Jews of Palestine. The German- Arabic plan was to put all Jews of Palestine in a concentration camp, after General Romel will conquer Palestine, and exterminate them. Unfortunately, the Final Solution of the Jews of Palestine did not materialize, because the Germans were stopped in Egypt, in 1942.

When the Jewish leadership of Palestine organized ships to save Jews from death camps and bring them to Palestine, the Mufti and the Arabs protested against letting these refugees in. They had no mercy to their plight.

After Second World War, the United Nations decided to divide the country into 2 states: a Jewish and an Arab. But, the Arab leaders and the leader of the Arabs of Palestine (they defined themselves as Palestinians after the middle of the 20th century ), the Mufti, rejected the 1947 UN resolution and the Palestinian Arabs and the Arab states started a war against the Jews of Palestine and declared they were going "to throw all Jews into the sea." The local Arabs and Arab gangs from abroad started shooting and attacking Jewish cities and villages, and tried to eliminate Jewish transportation by attacking buses. Jews were massacred and the situation of the Jews became critical.

The Jews decided of fight back and conquer the Arab cities and villages from were the attacks against Jews were conducted. The Jewish went from defensive to offensive attack and many Arabs, who fought against the Jews and committed war crimes, became afraid and ran away. When the Arab armies invaded the new state of Israel, on May 1948, the mufti advised the Arabs to leave the country for a short time, until the Jews will be "thrown into the sea." Many took his advice. THIS IS HOW THE REFUGEE PROBLEM WAS CREATED.

During the war, the Israeli army expelled Arabs who participated in the fighting and their families. But most refugees ran away or followed their leaders' advice.

Who is responsible for the refugee problem? The Arabs and Palestinians or Israel?
