Once upon a time, there was a land called Israel. It was also called among other names, Canaan and Judah. Jews were here this whole time. They got kicked around. A lot. The Crusades whipped their ass. So did the Romans.
But let’s move up to 1947. So there were boats of Jews coming from Europe and the British were like, “hell no, we don’t want another boatload of these people.” But then they said, “this is bullshit…we don’t want to deal with this anymore” and the British went home.
Meanwhile, the newly created pre-curser to the United Nations offered up the two-state system. They gave like 50% of the land to the Arabs and 40% to the Jews. The newly created State of Israel had arrived.
Tel Aviv was in this Israel part, and a bunch of really shitty farmland and mostly desert. A lot was land that the Jews had already been working and developing.
So the Jews said yes. And the Arabs said hell no. And all the Arab countries surrounding this land said to the Palestinians…get off this land, and we will push all the Jews into the sea. And then you can come back and all the land, all 100% of it, will be yours.
So a lot of the Palestinians left…and went to the borders. And the Arab countries attacked Israel. And they lost. And Israel, because this was a war and all, captured more land than what was originally offered.
The Arabs that stayed in Israel, they became citizens. They work in the Government and sit on the Supreme Court. And they fight in the army—to defend Israel. Because they are Israeli. “Get out,” you say. But it’s true.
Those others, that left when all the Arab countries promised they would kick some Jew ass and told them to leave, because that so didn’t happen, they could not come back. Hence the Palestinian Refugees.
These Refugees...they said to, for example, Jordan…they said “hey Jordan, we can’t go back to our homes now, because you, you know… lost. Can we come live with you?” And Jordan said “hell no.” And so… presenting the West Bank.
And every other Arab country said hell no, too. They didn’t take them in. They didn’t take in their people, who they promised they would push the Jews into the sea for. They said hell no. All these Arab nations. They said, “no, you can’t come in our countries. We don’t want you.”
These Palestinian refugees, they got screwed. By their own people. Still. They are still getting screwed.
Because here we are… Right this minute. Here is Gaza. Are the Arab countries taking in those Palestinians from Gaza now? What is Egypt doing? Are they opening the gate and saying, please come in, we’ll keep you safe, you are one of ours? Nope.
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, just a few weeks ago, said “nope. We don’t want you here, you may have militants hiding amidst your group. You’ll muck up the 40-year-old peace treaty we have with Israel. Can’t come here. Hell no.”
And Jordan's King Abdullah II. "No refugees in Jordan.” Pretty clear, huh.
And what about Hamas, the government of the people of Gaza, who have tons of oil and fuel. Are they sharing this with the citizens of Gaza? Nope. They are keeping it to set off their rockets and to make sure they can live in their tunnels under hospitals and schools.
Because it’s not about people. It’s not about helping those people in Gaza.
This is not what it’s about at all. It’s about “From the River to the Sea.”
Eight times a two-state system has been offered and eight times, the Israelis have said yes and the Palestinians have said no. Eight times. The Arabs don’t want peace. They want the Jewish people gone. They want to push the Jewish people into the sea. From the River to the Sea. See
And then, guess what? The West is next. In fact, it’s already started.
