Help answer this question below.

Why dont the Palestinians get out of Israel and move to one of those other Muslim countries that surrounds Israel?

Theres Muslim countries on all sides if the Palestinians dont want to live in a Jewish country. Why dont they go to Syria or Jordan or Egypt or Iraq? Or Iran, or Yemen, or Saudi Arabia, or Afganistan, or Pakistan or Libya or Turkey or Sudan? Theres so many Muslim countries nearby where the Palestinians can live with their fellow Muslims in peace. Israel is just a tiny peice of desert land surrounded by nothing but more desert. Theres no way the Jews who own it now and the support of all their allies which include America, Americas military, the UN, all the Western World and World Organizations will give it up and they all got nukes and arent afraid to use them. Nobody supports Palestine or even recognizes they are a real people or an actual country besides Muslims. Why would these people prefer to waste their lives away in a conquered land where they are not happy. Taking back Israel and wiping it off the map with all the foreign and military aid it receives is impossible!

Please educate me, because it just does not make sense to me. Theres so many Muslim countries for the Palestinians to live in and practice sharia law and live their way of life the way they want. Instead of staying in Israel thats backed by the biggest baddest superpowers, why dont they go live in a nearby Muslim country with their fellow Muslims and stop complaining? Cant the Jews have just one country. How much longer is it gonna take for them to realize they lost a tiny piece of dirt thats smaller than Rhode Island and will never get it back?

    The Palestinians were kind of there first. And lots of people recognize the Palestinians as a real people who aren't Muslims.

    I mean, really, why don't I just take your house by force? You can go live with one of your friends or something. It's not like you could possibly stop me, I would just kill the crap out of you.

    From time to time people post statements showing they do not know the history of that land:

    From 1517-1917 Turkey's Ottoman Empire controlled a vast Arab empire, a portion of which is today Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine. During World War I (1914-1918), Turkey supported Germany. When Germany was defeated, so were the Turks. In 1916 control of the southern portion of their Ottoman Empire was "mandated" to France and Britain under the Sykes-Picot Agreement, which divided the Arab region into zones of influence. Lebanon and Syria were assigned (mandated) to France... and "Palestine" (today's Jordan, Israel and "West Bank") was mandated to Great Britain. Because no other peoples had ever established a national homeland in "Palestine" since the Jews had done it 2,000 years before, the British "looked favorably" upon the creation of a Jewish National Homeland throughout ALL of Palestine. The Jews had already begun mass immigration into Palestine in the 1880's in an effort to rid the land of swamps and malaria and prepare for the rebirth of Israel. This Jewish effort to revitalize the land attracted an equally large immigration of Arabs from neighboring areas who were drawn by employment opportunities and healthier living conditions. There was never any attempt to "rid" the area of what few Arabs there or those Arab masses that immigrated into this area along with the Jews!

    In 1923, the British divided the "Palestine" portion of the Ottoman Empire into two administrative districts. Jews would be permitted only west of the Jordan river. In effect, the British had "chopped off" 75% of the originally proposed Jewish Palestinian homeland to form an Arab Palestinian nation called Trans-Jordan (meaning "across the Jordan River"). This territory east of the Jordan River was given to Emir Abdullah (from Hejaz, now Saudi Arabia) who was not even an Arab-"Palestinian!" This portion of Palestine was renamed Trans-Jordan. Trans-Jordan and would again be renamed "Jordan" in 1946. In other words, the eastern 3/4 of Palestine would be renamed TWICE, in effect, erasing all connection to the name "Palestine!" However, the bottom line is that the Palestinian Arabs had THEIR "Arab Palestinian" homeland. The remaining 25% of Palestine (now WEST of the Jordan River) was to be the Jewish Palestinian homeland. However, sharing was not part of the Arab psychological makeup then nor now.

    Encouraged and incited by growing Arab nationalism throughout the Middle East, the Arabs of that small remaining Palestinian territory west of the Jordan River launched never-ending murderous attacks upon the Jewish Palestinians in an effort to drive them out. Most terrifying were the Hebron massacres of 1929 and later during the 1936-39 "Arab Revolt." The British at first tried to maintain order but soon (due to the large oil deposits being discovered throughout the Arab Middle East) turned a blind eye. It became painfully clear to the Palestinian Jews that they must fight the Arabs AND drive out the British.

    The Palestinian Jews were forced to form an organized defense against the Arabs Palestinians... thus was formed the Hagana, the beginnings of the Israeli Defense Forces [IDF]. There was also a Jewish underground called the Irgun led by Menachem Begin (who later became Prime Minister of Israel). Besides fighting the Arabs, the Irgun was instrumental in driving out the pro-Arab British. Finally in 1947 the British had enough and turned the Palestine matter over to the United Nations.

    The 1947 U.N. Resolution 181 partition plan was to divide the remaining 25% of Palestine into a Jewish Palestinian State and a SECOND Arab Palestinian State (Trans-Jordan being the first) based upon population concentrations. The Jewish Palestinians accepted... the Arab Palestinians rejected. The Arabs still wanted ALL of Palestine... both east AND west of the Jordan River.

    Our Palestinian Cousins started the '48 war, and in so doing released the warlike appetites of a nation of survivors, a people with no place to run, who had repressed their rage for millennia, and had now earned full title to it!

    On May 14, 1948 the "Palestinian" Jews finally declared their own State of Israel and became "Israelis." On the next day, seven neighboring Arab armies... Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen... invaded Israel. Most of the Arabs living within the boundaries of the newly declared "ISRAEL" were encouraged to leave by the invading Arab armies to facilitate the slaughter of the Jews and were promised to be given all Jewish property after the victorious Arab armies won the war. The truth is that 70% of the Arab Palestinians who left in 1948 -- perhaps 300,000 to 400,000 of them -- never saw an Israeli soldier! They did not flee because they feared Jewish thugs, but because of a rational and reasonable calculus: the Jews will be exterminated; we will get out of the way while that messy and dangerous business goes forward, and we will return afterwards to reclaim our homes, and to inherit those nice Jewish properties as well.

    They guessed wrong; and the Arab Palestinians are still tortured by the residual shame of their flight. Their shame is so great because in their eyes running from Jews was like running from women. So much for the blatant lie about Jews throwing out all the [Palestinian] Arabs! The remaining 30% either (1) saw for themselves that these Jews would fight and die for their new nation and decided to pack up and leave or (2) were driven off the land as a normal consequence of war.

    When the 19 month war ended, Israel survived despite a 1% loss of its entire population! Those Arabs who did not flee became today's Israeli-Arab citizens. Those who fled became the seeds of the first wave of "Palestinian Arab refugees."

    The Arab propagandists and apologists almost never mentioned that in 1948, Arab armies launched a war against a one-day-old Israel. Instead they focus on the main consequence of that war: the creation of Arab refugees, stating that Israel "short of genocide" expelled 800,000 of them. This not only disagrees with UN estimates of a bit over 400,000 refugees but also ignores the fact that most of the Arabs/Palestinians were encouraged to leave by the Arab World itself!

    Because the Europeans dumped the Jews in Palestine after the second world war. It's not they had a choice in this. Nobody in Europe wanted the Jews. They still are phobic about them, even after all this time.

    Ergo, the PLO and others want their country back. I don't blame them. It's not their fault or the Jews. They are all puppets to the people that made this mess. Now hundreds of thousands die because nobody even tries to get along.

    It's an ideological mess. Where they should, on both sides, be worried about people, religion rears it's ugly and murderess head. Religion should not even come into the question. People and the needs and wants of the people should come first, for both of them.

    Because it doesn't really make sense. The homeland for Palestinians is Palestine. Even in the Bible, the Hebrews had to fight the Palestinians before they could move into the "promised land."

    "Why should the Israelis be in Palestine" is perhaps an even better question.

    Anyway, Palestinians get no passport or any other documentation from Israel to go to any other countries, so how are they supposed to travel?

    The best question, to me, is "Why can't the Israelis and Palestinians just live together?" Seriously, why not?

    Jordan would like the west bank back and egypt have up until now proposed for gaza to be part of it. Look up Greater Israel as well and see what you think about that as a possible new country.

  • by navyboy on September 21st, 2011


    That would make too much sense. Its more logical to keep fighting for another 60 years and gain absolutely nothing.
