Nakba Remembrance Day

May 15, 2012

The key has become a symbol of the Palestinian struggle for the Right of Return – a universal right granted by the Fourth Geneva Convention – in violation by the Jewish State for 64 years.

Today, May 15 is the Palestinian Nakba Remembrance Day. It commemorates the massacring, uprooting, expulsion and plunder of the native Palestinians in a systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing orchestrated by war criminal David Ben Gurion and his Zionist gang against a defenseless civilian population. This massive act of terror carried out by Zionist immigrants resulted in the expulsion of 80% of Palestine’s native population, whose villages were subsequently razed to the ground and their property and lands confiscated by the illegitimate state of Israel. They have lived as destitute, stateless refugees ever since in refugee camps scattered in and around Palestine.

The ethnic cleansing by Jewish forces has also demonstrated to the people of the Middle East that the Zionist colonial invader from Europe is unlike any other before him – he does not abide by the laws of warfare or the common brotherhood of mankind. He targets the entire Palestinian people, not an army or armed forces. Unlike the countless empires and conquerors who extended their rule over Palestine over the ages, the Zionist aims to clear the land for a Jewish Lebensraum. He views the natives of the land as no more than weeds that need to be eradicated in his quest to erase the people and the history of Palestine. He rapes, massacres, razes villages and towns to the ground, confiscates and plunders property and covers his murderous track by planting forests over his victim’s remains. Then he continues his coverup by falsifying history, lying, distorting and omitting facts, subverting the truth and creating a fantasy alibi tale which he narrates to the world using his connections and influence in the West.

The Nakba is not just history, it is a living breathing thing, the heart of the Palestinian struggle and the root of the conflict. There will not be peace without an acknowledgement, compensation and / or the right of return. Moreover, the Zionists have not changed their ways one iota. The new Barbarians of the Middle East still plunder, confiscate, imprison, deport and kill under various pretexts. They deny the Palestinian Nakba and continue to this day to dispossess and oppress the remaining Palestinians, hoping to implement a Final Solution under the fog of war, like their European mentors.

Let it also be a reminder of Western colonial mores and their world order, that which sends people to jail for the thought crime of Holocaust denial, yet unequivocally supports and arms the perpetrators of the Palestinian Holocaust who never admitted their responsibility, have not paid a dime in reparations and have made Nakba denial an official policy.

    No Palestinian nation except the Jewish nation. Falsely-called “Palestinians” are Arab settler-colonist land-thieves who wish to steal the tiny sliver of land belonging to the only true Palestinians, the Jews.

    Anyone who accepts the fraudulent “Palestinian” narrative of the Arab imperialist has bought into “lies, myths and propaganda” as you describe it in the byline. The Jews are the indigenous of Palestine; Arabs are indigenous to Arabia and colonial interlopers in Palestine. Historic justice and lasting peace will be achieved by letting the Palestinians, meaning the Jews, be free of colonial, imperial Arab encroachment on their own soil. The Arab settlements in Palestine are illegal and will have to be dismantled for the sake of peace.

      There is a very simple way to prove who is the myth teller and who is stating historical fact: the Palestinians have land deeds and property deeds and every Palestinian in refugee camps can show you exactly where their houses and lands, stolen by force by the Zionist invaders, are or used to be. This is called indisputable fact, admissible as evidence in every court of justice. You and your Judeo-Nazionalist cohorts on the other hand, can only resort to “national claim” (just like the Nazis did to revoke Jewish property rights) and Zionist mythology, without any proof of land deeds or property deeds from 2000 years ago (which supposedly were revoked through a forced exile that didn’t happen as all historians agree), and until you can show me your personal land deed or property deed from 2000 years ago, show me exactly where your house was 2000 years ago, your case would be thrown out of court and you would be further charged with theft, murder and contempt for the court.

      I just approved your comment so that people who read this blog see what kind of poisonous fascist ideology we are dealing with, the twin mirror image of Nazi ideology (except that the Germans were not recent immigrants as the Zionists are, which makes the Zionist “nazional” claim even more abhorrent).

      ziontruth (sic):

      Setting aside your appalling and inexcusable ignorance of the region’s history, which reeks of racism, It seems that you have fallen for the nonsense spewed forth by Joan Peters in her mountain of mendacity, “From Time Immemorial….”

      For your edification:

      Dr. Porath, Israel’s leading historical demographer, called Peters’ book “a forgery [that] was almost universally dismissed [in Israel] as sheer rubbish, except maybe as a propaganda weapon.” (New York Times, Nov. 28, 1985).

      Rabbi Arthur Herzberg, vice-president of the World Jewish Congress agreed: “I think she has
      cooked the statistics…. The scholarship is phoney and tendentious. I do not believe she has read the Arabic sources that she quotes.” (ibid)

      Peters’ errors are blatant and numerous. Apart from ignoring the population figures for Palestine carefully calculated by expert demographers during the 19th century – e.g., in 1870, Palestinian Arabs made up 98% of the population, Jews 2%; in 1882, Palestinian Arabs owned 99.9% of the land, Jews owned 0.09% – she also fails to note the meticulous
      censuses taken during the British mandate.

      From Time Immemorial is also riddled with contradictions, easily detected misrepresentations of documented history and invalid data taken from another discredited source (Ernst Frankenstein). The general consensus among experts is that Peters did not write the book herself, but served as a front for others whose motives are obvious.

      To quote the renowned historian/anthropologist and “Holy Land” specialist, Professor Ilene Beatty: “When we speak of ‘Palestinians’ or of the ‘Arab population [of Palestine]‘, we must bear in mind their Canaanite origin. This is important because their legal right to the country stems…from the fact that the Canaanites were first, which gives them priority; their descendants have continued to live there, which gives them continuity; and (except for the 800,000 dispossessed refugees [of 1948 along with the 25,000 expelled just prior to and during Israel's first invasion of Egypt in 1956 and the additional more than 400,000 driven out during and after the war Israel launched on 5 June 1967]) they are still living there, which gives them present possession. Thus we see that on purely statistical grounds they have a proven legal right to their own land.” (“Arab and Jew in the Land of Canaan,” 1957)

        You are being dragged into the spurious argument “who was here first”, which is irrelevant at best. Aryans were there first in Germany. Does it mean that a person of Aryan descent can claim a Jew’s house, property and land for himself? According to ziontruth, yes. This just demonstrates the common root of Nazi ideology and Zionist ideology.

        “Peoples” or “nations” were not “there first”, neither Jewish nor Palestinian. Individuals have a right to property they legally purchased and a war does not annul that right. Even Hitler didn’t consider confiscating property in Paris and populating it with Germans.

        People who were expelled and whose property was confiscated by the Jewish State are entitled to reclaim the property and residence back. These are the basic rules of mankind, which the Jewish State tries so hard to divorce itself from.

    Ahad

    My primary objective was to debunk Joan Peters’ “thesis.” I’m sure you are aware that “her” bogus arguments play a major role in the Zionists’ attempt to delegitimize Palestinians and Palestine. Unfortunately, while you and I know full well that Palestinians are the region’s indigenous inhabitants, many mainstream Americans, Canadians, Europeans, etc., have been duped by Peters, her cohorts and hasbara puppets into viewing them as interlopers. In my view, it is imperative that this neo-fascistic nonsense be summarily squashed whenever it appears.

    With respect, always remember that the average person out there is poorly informed about this subject. The good news, however, is that thanks to the Internet, the truth is slowly, but steadily emerging. It will soon become a flood.
    Regards,
    David

    If the Arabs are the indigenous people of the land, then why do they live in towns with Hebrew names?
    Ramalla means “Heights of God”
    Bethlehem means “House of Bread”
    Jericho means “Moon Town”
    Hebron means “Little Friend”

      For the same reason some towns and villages have Canaanite or pagan names (Jerusalem comes to mind – city of the God Shalem). The pagans or Canaanites that inhabited the region didn’t “disappear” – they simply adopted ancient Jewish practices and names. Then the same thing happened in Palestine – the Judeans didn’t “disappear” – they simply adopted Arab culture and language and converted to Christianity and Islam.

      What you are referencing is a Zionist myth – that the Jews were exiled and Arabs took their place. There is absolutely no historical evidence to support this fairy tale which is the shaky foundation of Zionism – a fairy tale concocted to make European Jews believe that they have “rights to the land”.

      The only exile which there is plenty of evidence of is the exile of 1948-1949 – the Palestinian Nakba, when colonial Jewish settlers from Europe expelled and dispossessed an indigenous population that has lived in Palestine from time immemorial, descendents of the Canaanites, Israelites and other tribes that inhabited the area.

      BTW, there is no need to troll using an Arab name. I have heard these nonsensical Zionist arguments since I was born.
