Before the 1940s – Jews, Christians and Muslims ?

1940s to 1960s – The Arab-Israeli conflict

  • In the 1940s to 1960s, Israel’s struggle with its enemies was labelled as The Arab-Israeli conflict, not as The Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
  • Writings almost never referred to Israel’s enemies as the Palestinians. The word barely existed. Israel’s enemies were the Arabs.
  • Before 1967, why were there were no demands for a “Palestinian” state in the West Bank and Gaza?
    • Jordanian rule over the West Bank 1948 to 1967. Under Jordanian rule, there were no demands for a “Palestinian” state in the West Bank. Why not?
    • Egyptian rule over Gaza 1948 to 1967. Under Egyptian rule, there were no demands for a “Palestinian” state in Gaza. Why not?
    • The answer is because the “Palestinians” don’t really care about a “Palestinian” state. They never have.
  • Bruce Thornton, Dec 2011: “The truly “ignorant,” however, are those who have bought the “Palestinian homeland” propaganda. Where was all this talk about a homeland for the Palestinians in 1948, when the Arab armies invaded Israel? Their aim was not to create a Palestinian state, but rather to carve up the rest of British Mandatory Palestine … “Abdullah [ruler of Transjordan] was to swallow up the central hill regions of Palestine . . . The Egyptians would get the Negev. The Galilee would go to Syria, except that the coastal part as far as Acre would be added to the Lebanon.” Until 1967, the so-called “West Bank” was part of Jordan, but none of the Arab nations agitated for the creation of a Palestinian state. The “Palestinian homeland” became a tactical weapon after violence failed to achieve the real aim, the destruction of Israel.”
  • Who Really Cares About the Palestinians? by Mitchell Bard, 19 Feb 2013. On the Arab world’s indifference to the oppression, expulsion and slaughter of Palestinians if it cannot be blamed on the Jews. And the Arab world’s indifference to a Palestinian state before 1967.
