Today's Golden Oldie is from January 1994.
Prior to 1948, when the State of Israel was created, a "Palestinian" was a Jew who lived in Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel.
After failing to destroy us in war, the Arab nations encouraged the Arabs of Bethlehem, Gaza, Hebron, Jerusalem, Nablus, etc. to see themselves as a coherent Arab nationality called "Palestinian". This promoted the fiction that there had once been a state called Palestine and that the Arabs were its natives ...and since Jews were no longer the "Palestinians", that meant that the Jews were foreign to the land. Oppressors. Outsiders. Settlers. Colonialists. The tactic worked ...but by 1994, our Arab neighbors were having trouble controlling the dangerous and violent Frankenstein's monster that they had created.
Arafat's heritage is now a two-headed beast ...Hamas, the Iranian stooge and the unrepentant terrorist PLO of Abbas. An the threat to the nations of the region is even greater now than it was back then.
