10 things Leftists never talk about regarding the Arab Israeli conflict-

1. For every TRUE Palestinian Arab refugee there were two or more Middle Eastern Jewish refugees that were not Zionists, but nevertheless, were ruthlessly expelled from the Muslim controlled lands that they lived in over a thousand years before Islam. The Muslims stole thousands of miles of land, and billions of dollars of assets from Mizrahi Jews that were living in Eqypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Algeria, Morocco, etc. It is a well documented fact that over 900,000 Mizrahi Jews were forced to flee Muslim nations and go to Israel and other places. And that doesn't include unaccounted for Jews that had dual citizenship with the colonial powers. These Jews are estimated to be another half million. That is FAR MORE than the TRUE number Palestinian Arab refugees which is in the range of 450,000, almost half of which were landless, migrant workers. Even the most biased, liberal estimates from Arab sympathizers place the 1948 Arab refugee number at around 720,000. That number, which includes landless migrants, still falls quite short of the amount of Jewish refugees. We are looking at almost a million and a half truly Jewish refugees versus almost a quarter million Arab refugees (the Arabs that were not landless migrant workers). That is a ratio of 6 to 1 in favor of the Jews.
The problem is not about land. The problem is really about population transfer and exchange. If the Muslims gave the Palestinian Arabs all the property and assets they stole from the Mizrahi Jews, the Pali-Arabs would get far more than they themselves claim to have lost. Mizrahi Jews make up more than half the Israeli Jewish population, and unless the Arabs and Muslim Persians give them back all their land and assets (a rhetorical proposition), the Israelis will continue to expand within the confines of their tiny state. India and Pakistan exchanged populations, so did Turkey and Greece. The Arabs with all their land and petro-wealth should take responsibility like Israel did, and follow through with the exchange that they initiated.

2. How is it possible for the liberal estimate of 720, 000 Pali-Arab refugees to grow into the 10-11 million claimed today? It biologically IMPOSSIBLE.  In order for Pali-Arabs to be that many today, they would have to have a population growth rate exceeding the highest population growth rate in the world today according to both the U.N. and CIA fact book figures. When in fact, according to those sources they have half the growth rate of the highest in the world. So, where did these "Palestinians" come from?
The PLO has been importing Arabs from other countries to live in the West Bank and Gaza to artificially boost their numbers. Example: They will offer a sheep herder in Morocco making $1 a day the opportunity to live in Gaza and get $30 a day from UNRWA. A fake refugee. It is obvious because you can tell from their last names.  If their name is El Masri they're from Egypt, Mograby-North they're from West Africa, Saud they're from Saudi Arabia, etc. Most Pali-Arabs don't know anybody that's actually from there.
 Former PLO Terrorist Walid Shoebat said- "As I lived in Palestine, everyone I knew could trace their heritage back to the original country their great grandparents came from. Everyone knew their origin was not from the Canaanites, but ironically, this is the kind of stuff our education in the Middle East included. The fact is that today's Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today's Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, muslim Sherkas from Russia, muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. My grandfather, who was a dignitary in Bethlehem, almost lost his life by Abdul Qader Al-Husseni (the leader of the Palestinian revolution) after being accused of selling land to Jews. He used to tell us that his village Beit Sahur (The Shepherds Fields) in Bethlehem County was empty before his father settled in the area with six other families. The town has now grown to 30,000 inhabitants"

The Turks invited the the Jews fresh from the Russian pogroms to make use of the land, the Jews did, and made it flourish. Then the British took over...THEN droves Arabs came because they could get jobs and medicine from the Jews and Brits. Most Pali-Arabs were migrant workers. They are not from there. Arabs have been pouring in after 1948 because of U.N. money.

3. All those Muslim countries that stole Land and Assets from the Mizrahi Jews supported the war against Israel in 1948. By attacking Israel, they caused the Arab refugee problem as well as making EVEN MORE Jewish refugees. Since those Muslim countries started this mess, they should absorb the fewer Pali-Arab refugees into their vast lands with all their petro-dollars just like the tiny nation of Israel absorbed MORE Jewish refugees into their little bit of land with no petro-dollars or resources. The greater number of Mizrahi Jews changed themselves from miserable refugees into Israeli citizens without one dime of help from the international community. Why is it after 60 years the Pali-Arabs with billions of dollars from UNRWA can't make themselves non-refugees? BECAUSE THE MUSLIM NATIONS THAT HATE ISRAEL WON'T ABSORB THEM, AND WON'T LET THEM.-- 80% of "Palestine" is in Jordan, ruled by the Hashimites. Why don't the Pali-Arabs demand their land back from the Hashimite King? Take a wild guess.

4. The PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) was invented by the Soviet Union during the cold war. Its charter was drafted in Moscow. Arafat and Abbas were hand picked by the KGB. Trained by the Romanians. Abbas graduated from college in the Soviet Union. The USSR created Liberation front organizations in South America and other places to thwart western power. The PLO was not a grass roots organization. In the beginning, the Palestinian Arabs did not want Arafat, they liked the Israelis. Arafat was afraid the Arabs would turn him over to the Israelis, so he had to base himself in Jordan and other countries outside Israel or "Palestine". Arafat is the one that created so much tension between Jews and Pali-Arabs by turning them into terrorists with the help of the Soviets. If the KGB did not create the PLO the Arab-Israeli conflict might very well have been settled decades ago.

5. The U.N. changed the standard definition of "refugee" solely for Pali-Arabs to mean anyone living in Palestine for two years can claim to be a refugee. This definition of 2 years does not apply to any other refugee on the planet. That means all the Arab migrants that came to Israel before 1948 looking to get jobs and medicine from the British and Jews are now included as refugees. Even though they had absolutely no roots there. There will not be a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict until we have a true accounting for how many real Arab refugees from Palestine exist and the far greater number of Middle Eastern Jews are compensated for their loses at the hands of the Muslim nations.

6. Before 1948 it was Jews and Christians that were known as "Palestinians" not the Arabs. The Jews have had the longest presence in that land than any other culture on earth. It is not an "Arab Land". For over a thousand years "Palestine" has be inhabited by Turks, Negroes, Berbers, Tartars, Slavs, Greeks, Dailamites and Kurds. Even Georgians and Circassians. The Arabs have no special propriety over this area.

7. Before Israel became a state, the leader of the Palestinian Arabs, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Muhammed Amin al-Husseini, helped Hitler wipe out Jews in Eastern Europe. Think about that...
Arabs left Palestine to kill Jews that were not Zionists, in a totally different part of the world, BEFORE ISRAELI STATEHOOD. Hitler made the Mufti an SS general and he led 30,000 Muslim troops in SS uniforms on a rampage through Eastern Europe to help kill Jews. What do the Muslims owe the European Ashkenazi Jews for helping Hitler exterminate them? - http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/gallery/

8. The Mizrahi Jews living under Islam were treated horribly as "Dhimmis". Jews had a far harder life under Islam than the Pali-Arabs have under their own Muslim oppressors. The civil rights of Pali-Arabs are repressed by the PLO and Hamas, not Israelis. If an Arab in the West Bank or Gaza stood on a street corner handing out pamphlets saying suicide bombing was wrong, he would be killed and dragged through the streets in minutes. There is no freedom of speech or freedom of press in "Palestine". The million plus Arabs that live in Israel have better rights than Pali-Arabs would have anywhere in the Arab world, with representation in the Israeli parliament. The Arabs that live in Israel would never trade their Israeli citizenship to become "Palestinian".

9. Here is what one ARAB journalist said about "Palestine". The following was written by Arab journalist, Joseph Farrah-

"The truth is that Palestine is no more real than Never-Never Land. The first time the name was used was in 70 A.D. when the Romans committed genocide against the Jews, smashed the Temple and declared the land of Israel would be no more. From then on, the Romans promised, it would be known as Palestine. The name was derived from the Philistines, a Goliathian people conquered by the Jews centuries earlier. It was a way for the Romans to add insult to injury. They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, but that had even less staying power.

Palestine has never existed -- before or since -- as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland.

There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.

But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today. Greed. Pride. Envy. Covetousness. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.

What about Islam's holy sites? There are none in Jerusalem.

Shocked? You should be. I don't expect you will ever hear this brutal truth from anyone else in the international media. It's just not politically correct.

I know what you're going to say: "Farah, the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem represent Islam's third most holy sites."

Not true. In fact, the Koran says nothing about Jerusalem. It mentions Mecca hundreds of times. It mentions Medina countless times. It never mentions Jerusalem. With good reason. There is no historical evidence to suggest Mohammed ever visited Jerusalem.

So how did Jerusalem become the third holiest site of Islam? Muslims today cite a vague passage in the Koran, the seventeenth Sura, entitled "The Night Journey." It relates that in a dream or a vision Mohammed was carried by night "from the sacred temple to the temple that is most remote, whose precinct we have blessed, that we might show him our signs. ..." In the seventh century, some Muslims identified the two temples mentioned in this verse as being in Mecca and Jerusalem. And that's as close as Islam's connection with Jerusalem gets -- myth, fantasy, wishful thinking. Meanwhile, Jews can trace their roots in Jerusalem back to the days of Abraham."

10. Here are quotes of what Arab/Muslim leaders and ex-terrorists have said about "Palestine".

Syrian dictator Hafez Assad told the PLO leader Yassir Arafat -

"You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there is no Palestinian entity, there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people, Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people".

Wallid Shoebat also said-
“Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?”
“We did not particularly mind Jordanian rule. The teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves Jordanian until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians - they removed the star from the Jordanian flag and all at once we had a Palestinian flag”. “When I finally realized the lies and myths I was taught, it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out”. -- http://www.imninalu.net/myths-pals.htm

"There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity... yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel". - Zuhair Muhsin, military commander of the PLO and member of the PLO Executive Council in a 1977 interview with the Amsterdam-based newspaper Trouw

"There is no such country as Palestine. 'Palestine' is a term the Zionists invented. There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our country was for centuries part of Syria. 'Palestine' is alien to us. It is the Zionists who introduced it". - Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, Syrian Arab leader to British Peel Commission, 1937 -

"There is no such thing as Palestine in history, absolutely not".
- Professor Philip Hitti, Arab historian, 1946 -

"It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but Southern Syria".
- Representant of Saudi Arabia at the United Nations, 1956 -

Son of Hamas, Mosab Hassan Yousef, said-

"Led by Hamas, Palestine would be an Islamic state, oppressed by religious leaders ruthlessly wielding sharia law.
Led by Fatah, Palestine would be a corrupt nation like Romania, structured on bribes."
