Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

David Singer: Trump Seems Set to Expose UN Fraud on Boundaries of Palestine

Here's the latest article by Sydney lawyer and international affairs analyst David Singer.

He writes:

President Trump appears set to expose more than forty years of deceptive and misleading information disseminated by the United Nations (UN)  in relation to the boundaries of former Palestine.

This welcome development comes with President Trump’s Special U.S Envoy Jason D. Greenblatt telling Sky News in Arabic on 19 April:
“there is no reason to use the term ‘two-state solution,” the reason being that, “every side sees it differently.”
The UN must take responsibility for creating such confusion by perpetuating intellectual and political fraud originating with its 1978  publication: "The Origins and Evolution of the Palestinian Problem" (referred to below as the Study).

Part 1 of the Study covering 1917-1947 was trashed by Israel’s Ambassador to the UN – Yehuda Blum – on 16 November:
 “Even the most cursory reading of this document can leave no doubt that the means and machinery of the United Nations have been misused once again to disseminate highly selective and tendentious information under the guise, in this instance, of what purports to be a scholarly study.
The history of international conflicts, and particularly those with complex historical origins, can only be properly written by objective historians who enjoy complete academic freedom. The practice of writing and rewriting history according to the transient interests of a political body is, of course, characteristic of certain regimes. It is regrettable that the United Nations has now been drawn into that pattern.”
 Blum then told the UN General Assembly on 30 November 1978:
“At the end of the first part of the publication, ostensibly dealing with the period of the Palestine Mandate, there appear a number of maps. The one map that is conspicuously absent is the official map of the Palestine Mandate which, until 1946, included Transjordan on the east bank of the Jordan River. This map was omitted because it does not fit into the PLO’s own scheme, as it would show too clearly that a Palestinian Arab state has already been in existence for 32 years on more than three quarters of the territory of mandated Palestine – that is, the state now called Jordan. That embarrassment is eliminated in this purportedly scholarly and impartial publication by the simple expedient of eliminating the map.”
Blum was not finished – pointing out to the General Assembly on 20 December 1978 regarding Part 2 of the Study, covering 1947-1977:
“Taken in conjunction with the first part, it is clear that this pseudo-scientific “study” is designed to give currency, under the emblem of the United Nations, to a completely misleading version of the history of the Arab-Israel conflict.
Put briefly, that version has it that the League of Nations Mandate over Palestine was illegal, and all subsequent events, including the establishment of the State of Israel, are null and void. This wholly distorted view is set out in almost as many words in article 20 of the so-called PLO’s basic document, the “National Covenant”, and it forms the underlying thesis of the United Nations Secretariat publication in question. It completely ignores the Jewish people’s inalienable rights to self-determination, national independence and sovereignty in its homeland, the land of Israel.
Thus, what purports to be a scholarly study, supported by what appears to be a scientific apparatus, is no more than a crude piece of propaganda.”
Two  States exist in former Palestine today: Arab Jordan – created in 1946 in about 78 per cent of former Palestine –  and Jewish Israel – created in 1948 in about 17 per cent of that territory. These two states remain pivotal to ending the 100 years old Jewish-Arab conflict.

Trump seems ready to set the UN fabricated record straight when his peace plan is released.

  2. Susie Dym said:

    The two-state "solution" means establishing yet another dangerous, radicalized, failed Arab state -- this time just a bike-ride away from Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv and Ben-Gurion airport. This is unjust and un-necessary. There already is a Palestinian Arab state, 3 times the size of Israel -- in Jordan.

    All Palestinians should be transferred to Jordan, because JORDAN IS PALESTINE.

    The goal of creating [another] Palestinian state is not to help the Palestinians; the goal is to make Israel indefensible, so it can be wiped off the map by Muslims.

    Selling land to Jews is a death-penalty-felony in Jordan. Why should Palestinians be permitted to live in Israel when Jews are not permitted to live in Jordan?

    The Palestinians already have a state: It is called Jordan.
    Jordan is more than three times the size of Israel.

  3. In 1947 CE, British Palestine was divided in 2 parts:

    Eastern Palestine (78%) became the Arab state of Jordan.
    Western Palestine (22%) became the Jewish state of Israel.

    In 1970, Yassir Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) attempted to take control of Jordan, because they recognized that Jordan is Palestine.

    In 1978, Shimon Peres told Menachem Begin:
    "Jordan is also Palestine".

    For many decades, the Catholic Church refused to recognize both Israel and Jordan, because both countries are the Biblical “Holy Land”.

    President Ronald Reagan said this in year 1980:

    “Israel and Jordan are the two Palestinian states envisioned and authorized by the United Nations. Jordan is now recognized in some 80 per cent of the old territory of Palestine…”


    Professor George Jochnowitzy said:

    “ISIS, also known simply as the Islamic State,
    has released a map of its view a future Arab world.
    There is no Israel on the map, needless to say.

    What is shocking is that there is no Palestine.

    Palestine, the central element in Arab nationalism, would be forgotten once Arabs conquered all the land that they had once owned. Palestine has remained an issue simply to be a way of opposing Israel’s existence. Refugees have remained in camps for over 60 years in order to make them suffer so that the world would blame Israel.”

  4. I much prefer to refer to the so-called "Palestinians" with Yahowah's word for the historical Philistines - the Palishty - meaning "unauthorized foreigners who terrorize". It fits the modern-day wannabes just as perfectly.
