May 14th, 1948 was the day that Israel officially
declared its independence. It was immediately
attacked by a half dozen Arab armies, and as a
result of the war which the Arabs themselves
initiated, two sets of refugees were created--Arabs
fleeing the fighting in that small portion of the
original 1920 Mandate of Palestine which would
become Israel and a greater number of Jewish
refugees fleeing their ancient homes in the
so-called "Arab" world.
To date, Arabs have almost two dozen states,
including one created on almost 80% of the original
1920 Mandate of Palestine...Jordan.
In 1947, Arabs were offered a second state for
themselves in about half of the roughly 20% of the
land remaining after the creation of Arab
Transjordan. They rejected this offer--which would
have netted Arab nationalism, in its various
stripes, almost 90% of the total territory.
Jews have one minuscule, resurrected state which
they never ceased to call home for over three
thousand years of history. It sits on less than one
half of one percent of the territory of the region.
Regardless, each May 15th Arabs protest and
demonstrate about their catastrophe--Israel's
rebirth--because in their attempt at completing
Hitler's genocide in 1948, their efforts backfired
Since the Arab tune is the same every Nakba Day,
there is no need for me to reinvent the wheel on
this issue either.
So, my friends, for your reading pleasure, please
check out my widely-published responses to Nakba Day
in years gone by. I have selected one of many
versions of each article. Here they are below...the
answer to the Arabs' distortions and outright lies:
A Tale Of Two Nakbas...
And, last year's edition, The Case Of The Missing
Had Arabs granted any of the scores of millions of
non-Arab peoples in the region just a tiny slice of
the very justice they demand solely for themselves,
their own "nakba" would have never occurred. It
happened as a result of their own self-centeredness
and greed--pure and simple. Now please read any or
all of the above articles to see what I mean.
