9,000 Photos from 1800’s British Mandate of Palestine – with no trace of ‘Palestinians’


Where ARE all those Palestinians, the proclaimed one million of them who lived in Israel before they were ‘displaced’?

Nowhere.

Nowhere, because they never existed.

And where are all the mosques for those “1 million Palestinians”? With Muslims comes mosques. There can be no Muslim population without a large proportion of mosques. If they had been 1 million at the turn of the Century, or even in 1920 after they began immigrating to fight the British, with their rapid population growth Palestine would consist of over 40 million people today and not 4 million. That alone proves the Palestinian jihad lies. Their population is small because they are new invaders and occupiers who arrived late with an aim to commit jihad. They never lost land that was never theirs to begin with!

The British army permitted merely a few Ottomans to remain due to religious observations, the rest was Jewish. In reality according to eyewitness reports the barren British Mandate had a very small number of people living on it. Félix Bonfils (1831-1885) was a French photographer and writer who was active in the Middle East. Four years after his arrival he reported 15,000 prints of Egypt, Palestine, Syria, and Greece, and 9,000 stereoscopic-views. He traveled to the region several times and we hear of no mass population of Palestinians, which contradicts everything the Palestinians lie about to the world.

His pictures did not manage to capture any photographs of a single so-called ‘Palestinian’ who are suppose to have lost land to Jewish occupation, if we believe Arab propaganda. All he found was a few bedouines passing through and some remnants of the Ottoman Turks. Guess why? Because the “Palestinian” people as we know them today never existed.

The original philistines which the Arab jihadi’s named themselves after were a small group of lawless bandits who occupied the region near Gaza by force and died out before the birth of Christ. Islam was created over 600 years after the death of Christ and is the world’s youngest religion.

Palestinians are a fake creation ordered and constructed by the Grand Mufti Haj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini [1889-1974]. They were basically discovered (formed and invented) and originate from mass immigration from Egypt and Saudi Arabia with purpose to commit jihad. The Egyptian fighters ended up in Gaza and the Saudi fighters ended up in the West Bank according to their rout of entry.

This has been well documented by British government reports from the British Mandate and from Transjordan. It also fits the video clips and rants by Hamas leaders, who seem well aware that Palestinians are fake yet continue to argue that they ‘lost land’. We are dealing with a terrorist organization here, and not a people who became victims of loss of land.

It is also important to pay attention to the fact that once Israel had been assigned to be returned  to the Jewish people in 1917, Muslims rapidly began to pour into the region from other countries with a purpose to kill them. The first conflict and killing in Israel/Palestine was initiated by the Muslims. At that point to control the population influx the British government stopped Jewish people from entering the area. So for a short span, the Muslim population suddenly became a majority. Not for natural reasons but due to their rapid invasion and occupation. Therefore, if we look at timeline of events in history we will quite easily see that the REAL occupiers of the region are the Muslims.

Bonfils and other historic records do mention that an occasional Arab bedouines would pass through the ‘barren land’ to reach other destinations but they would not stay. There is no mention anywhere, ever, of a “Palestinian” people with permanent settlement in the British Mandate.

The Garden of Gethsemane
The Garden of Gethsemane, general view by F?lix Bonfils ca. 1885. This is an original vintage Albumen print on a thin sheet of paper with sepia color and slightly glossy surface, signed in the negative (within a red circle). Showing a view overlooking from the temple mount of Jerusalem towards Mount of Olives. In the center the Garden of Gethsemane and Kidron Valley. Above the garden, is the Eastern Russian Orthodox Church of St. Maria Magdalena inaugurated in 1888. On the left is the tomb of the Virgin Mary and the Church Of The Assumption. Size: 28 X 22 cm (11 x 8.5 inches). This photograph is documented in the list of Felix Bonfils Photographs (“Die Provincia Arabia”), in the Department of Rare Books, Princeton University Library, Box 6, File 25, and Photograph No. 303.

Jerusalem-II
Mur-des-Juifs-un-vendredi

St. Stephen’s Gate Jerusalem circa 1870. This is an original vintage Albumen print on a thin sheet of paper with sepia color and slightly glossy surface, depicting the gate known as St Stephen’s in the eastern wall surrounding the old city of Jerusalem. This gate is also known as the Lions gate because of the decorations to the right and left of the gate. These are actually panthers which were the symbols of Baibars (1223 –1277 CE). Baibars was the first Mamluk Sultan of Egypt and Syria. He defeated the crusaders who came to defend their Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 8th and 9th crusades. Saint Stephen was an early follower of Jesus. He was stoned to death in the mid 4th century CE and is considered the first martyr. Tradition puts the act of stoning outside this eastern gate, hence its name. In this picture we see that the path to the gate is slightly barred by earth. This was cleared around 1880. Inside the gate are Ottoman soldiers. This is an unsigned picture in relatively good condition with only minute foxing. there are some tears to the top and top right sides.

Porte St Etienne St. Stephen's Gate Bonfils circa 1880

Porte St Etienne St. Stephen’s Gate Bonfils circa 1880. This is an original vintage Albumen print on a thin sheet of paper pasted on cardboard with sepia color and slightly glossy surface, numbered 273, depicting the gate known as St Stephen’s in the eastern wall surrounding the old city of Jerusalem. This gate is also known as the Lions gate because of the decorations to the right and left of the gate. These are actually panthers which were the symbols of Baibars (1223 –1277 CE). Baibars was the first Mamluk Sultan of Egypt and Syria. He defeated the crusaders who came to defend their Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 8th and 9th crusades. Saint Stephen was an early follower of Jesus. He was stoned to death in the mid 4th century CE and is considered the first martyr. Tradition puts the act of stoning outside this eastern gate, hence its name. This is an unsigned picture by Bonfils in very good condition with no foxing.
Tomb of David on Mount Zion
Jerusalem Mosque of Omar [a confiscated synagogue that had been converted into a mosque) by Felix Bonfils ca. 1870. This is an original vintage Albumen print on a thin sheet of paper with sepia color and slightly glossy surface, signed in the negative (within a red circle). The picture shows the Dome of the Rock that is also called the Mosque of Omar. It was built in 691 AD by the Khalif Abd El Malik on the rocky top of Mount Moriah about 600 years after the Romans destroyed the Jewish temple. It was named after the Khalif Omar who captured Jerusalem from the Byzantine Christians in 638. In close proximity to the Dome of the Rock are three Ottoman freestanding qubbas (small domed structures) these qubbas are all single-unit buildings, their domes supported by six or eight open arches. With view looking south, to the left of the Dome of the Rock is the Dome of the Chain. To the right are the small Dome of the Prophet and the larger Dome of the Miraj. Size: 28 X 22 cm (11 x 8.5 inches). This photograph is documented in the list of Felix Bonfils Photographs (“Die Provincia Arabia”), in the Department of Rare Books, Princeton University Library, Box 19, File 9, and Photograph No. 278. (http://libweb.princeton.edu/libraries/firestone/rbsc/aids/brunnow.html).
Vallée de Josaphat, by Felix Bonfils ca. 1870
Vallée de Josaphat, by Felix Bonfils ca. 1870. Photo number 290. This is an original vintage Albumen print on a thin sheet of paper with sepia color and slightly glossy surface, signed in the negative, showing the northen entrance to the valley of Jehosaphat, or Kidron Valley. The road on the left is the road to Jerico which passes through Betheny. Above and below the road many tombstoens are visible. This is the Jewish cemetry on Mount of Olives. The monument in the middle is called Absalom’s Tomb after king David’s son. There are various monuments of this sort in the valley all dating from the 2nd or 1st centuries BCE. This photograph is documented in the list of Felix Bonfils Photographs in the Department of Rare Books, Princeton University Library, Box 6, folder 15. (http://diglib.princeton.edu/ead/getEad?id=ark:/88435/sj1391972#series1subseriesE). The prolific photographer Félix Bonfils was born on 8 March 1831 in France. In 1867 he moved to Beirut with his wife Lydie (b. 1837), and son Adrien (b. 1861) and set up a photographic studio. Bonfils published many albums focusing on specific regions or themes from various sites along the eastern Mediterranean. Bonfils died in 1885.

  1. Satan is all over the world for its a fallen angle ,thrown out of heaven with the other nephiliem ( fallen ones) . Not just in Islam. They are spiritual beings that rule on thre earth and are anti God Almighty, so anti Messiah (Christ) anti Israel. Anti the plan of God. But God is souvereign and has the last word! Israel is Gods country . All nations will turn against it. But like before God will defend it. The problem is spiritual and has no political silution. If men start relating to God and (not to satan) ,if men start living according to Gods rules and obey him. Accept his plan for the world Yeshua ha Messiah there will be peace on earth. This will happen in the 7th millenium! Man make plans God decides!!! He reigns over His creation !

  2. The so called Palestinians are full of hate because they are taught from childhood on to hate the Jews and to kill the. Their family will be payed for it and they go directly to heaven. The ones that don’t hate are worse of than the Israelis. Women are raped others killed. There is a lot of presure specially for chrisftians! The Israelis are thaught not to hate for the God of the Bible is a God of love and mercy. In the book of Kings it is written already that the kings of Israel were known for putting mercy before revange. 1st.Kings :31.and the 10 commandmands are their law. If everybody would livving according to that law there would be peace already, all over the world.

    • Well like all Caucasians you try to make yourselves look innocent. Jews hate in fact they hate other Jews and even worse they’re just as racially prejudiced as a lot of Caucasians. Look at the current prejudice and hate they have for Ethiopian Jews who came to Israel and all because they’re black. Most of the Jews in Israel aren’t even Jews they’re Europeans who chose the faith. The people who God promised the land to are long gone and have very few descendants alive today. So if the Palestinians are indeed Arabs they have more claim to the land than the current Jews who reside there. It’s almost as sad as the Euros claiming to discover America and saying there weren’t any Indians here when they came. Jews are a bunch of land robbers in the name of their one true God who also happens to be Islams one true God, go figure.

      • First of all, Girdon, i myself am not jewish. I did live in Israel for about 4 years. I met many Arabs too. They also worked in the kibbutz where I was living and there was a good relationship at that time. After the intifada’s it was hatd to know who to trust. I also saw the Etheopians come, the so Falasi’s as they were called. A friend if mine who is a nurse was paying visits to them and they were helped very well an nit hated at all. I know there ate hatefull people everywhere ,fanatics too. But generally I did not find the Israeli’s hate the Arabs nor the Etheopians. All the new immigrants are given as much help as possible. This you cannot say about the refugees in the Arab countries arround Israel. Where ever there are earthquakes or other desasters you can find Israeli soldiers to help rescue etc. I never hear that from Arab/ moslim countries.
        .

      • YOU are an IGNORANT MORON!!!
        Most of the Jews in Israel are the Diaspora from other Middle-East countries…including myself!! My family came from Sanaa Yemen that had a large Jewish population at one time.
        Know TRUE history and REAL facts before you SPEW your BULL SHIT LIES!!!

      • Indeed you have not a clue. More than 50% of Israeli Jews are Middle Eastern and Israel hold human rights in the highest regards for all, subject to imperfection and mistakes, and far better than any other country in the world, let alone the Arab world!

      • There is very little prejudice of Ethiopian Israeli Jews. They were brought to Israel by The Israeli government. The right to murder, maim and torture The Jewish People is, according to you a Muslim right. As for the Jews of Israel, they are Jewish and will always be Jewish by G-ds law. You are providing dis-information. Land robbery–Al Aqsa Mosque started out as a Jewish Temple, then became a Catholic Church when The Christians invaded Jerusalem, then came the Muslims who then grabbed the Temple and made it a Mosque. To bad that Islam’s one true G-d calls for the murder of infidels who do not convert to Islam.

      • Let’s have a show of hands. How many of you spewing nonsense live/have lived in Israel and experinced the true facts for yourself????

      • @Tivona Not sure if you are calling Gordon’s comment nonsense (which it is) but I suspect you’re addressing the disagreeing commenters.
        I have lived there, as did @Mnewgent, and they are right…have you lived there yourself?

      • The god of Islam is not the God of the Bible! “Allah has no son” is inscribed in their mosques! The God of the Bible gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life! John 3:16

      • Wow you don’t let little things like facts get in the way do you? I hate to break it to you bc it might cause you to sweat but genetic tests of jewish groups worldwide have definitively proven an unbroken group link to ancient times.
        Your attempt to compare Muslim genocide across the Mideast with supposed inequality of Ethiopian Jews in israel is obscene. No society has perfect anything including the USA which continually have race riots. But to compare the USA to let’s say Syria is a miscarriage of reality. Your attempt to refashion FACTS to fit your jew hating agenda is a failure like you are.

      • shut up , you don’t know what you are talking about….there are the MIZRAHIM JEWS..one MILLION of whom were expelled from Arab nations ….when Israel was created ….ONE MILLION..so SHUT up…all Jews are NOT from blah blah blah whatever you were sayingllwhatever lies from your mouth.

      • Jews hate Jews? Umm.. no. Think again. We’re united. We may not always get along. But we’re human just like anyone else. But when it comes down to it, we stick together. We’re all brothers and sisters. Arabs on the other hand…. well, the world already knows how “well” those guys get along with each other and the rest of the human race (for the most part).

      • What a bigoted comment. I suppose you know every jew? The majority of them? Get the fk outta here with your bigotry. It’s not welcome.

      • Gordon, before you speak nonsense you should learn about the jewish people and Israelis. They are most tolerant of all. The Falashas have been welcomed and accepted as Jews regardless of color. Jews come in all colors. The Jews of today are still here and are descendants from mount Sinai, survived against all odds, Thank GD.

      • Dear Gordon, be sure to look back when the knife is stuck: for some reason, I don’t think it will be a Jewish hand holding it.
        Not all Muslims are terrorists, that’s true. BUT, almost every terrorist in the last 100 years is a Muslim. And not only in Israel.
        So I ask you this: is the entire world against the Arabs? Did every country robbed Muslim land and freedom? Do you buy every piece of BS the media feeds you, or have you never heard of Wikipedia before (read about the history of the land of Israel before commenting about it)?

      • DNA evidence shows that even European Jews are descendants of the Jews in the holy land. We are an unbroken chain. Also, converts are fully Jewish, so that argument doesn’t work.

      • The God of Islam and the God of Israel aren’t the same God.
        In Islam there is son.
        Most Jews have not recognized Jesus as the Messiah.

        Truth is Jesus is the Son of Jehovah and He is coming soon to save His elect.

        Got Jesus?

      • Ah dude… You wouldn’t have a swastika tattoo would you… You sound like you do. anyway, you should really get your head out of the propaganda machine…!

      • the root error in your entire argument is… only a crazy person would CHOOSE to be Jewish/.. to put up with the disrespect.. they hate.. the pogroms.. the mass murders.. and to choose EN MASS?? no my friend.. you just suffer from the same hate and disinformation..

      • You Sir are either very poorly educated or the dumbest bag of rocks I have ever read after. These photos are stark evidence of the Jewish people settling and claiming lands back from Islamic invaders. How did Absaloms tomb get there if King David didn’t have him buried there? There was a dark period of 400 years between the turning away of God from Israel and the arrival of a prophet proclaiming a Messiah to come in the birth of Jesus and fulfilled in His life, death, and resurrection. He watches over His people at all times!! Allah is a dead and rotting corpse and in no way comparable to Jehovah God Almighty!

      • Gordon, it has been proven by science that Jewish people is an ethnicity. According to DNA test, I am 98.5% Ashkenazi Jew being born and raised in Belarus but again according to chromosomal analysis my families come from Arabia and my DNA closely resembles DNA of Yemeni Jews and Saudi Arabians. So, European Jews cannot be coverts as converts would not have a Jewish gene

      • Your little paragraphs drip with Antisemitism. Why should anyone listen to your drivel? Your a purveyor of lies and/or half truths.

      • Israel is as large as lake Michigan ,20% of Israel population is arab muslim 80%are arab jews ,the arabs have stolen the land arabia 1400 years ago was majority jewish ,google the farhud and find out the truth .

      • Jews do not advocate genocide. Can others say the same? We are all human, with human flaws… but only the devil condones genocide.

      • Gordon, what does anything you are writing have to do with the subject matter – that Judea and Samaria are the original homeland of Judaism and Christianity, and there were no Muslims anywhere to be seen in the 19th Century when these pictures were taken.

      • Gordon, when an Arab moves to the USA or UK, would you still consider their descendants to be of Islamic/Arab descent? And if those descendants are practicing Muslims, would you still consider them Muslims? Or would you call them wannabe non-Muslims because they are now considered “Western” or “European” even though they are practicing Muslims? Jews left the land for many reasons, amongst them were wars, Roman empire, Ottoman Empire etc. They scattered to different countries and moved around over the centuries. Just because they were scattered, but kept the faith and traditions, does not make them any less Jewish than the Muslim who immigrates to Western civilisation, have his children there, keeps the faith and traditions. Many Jewish descendants are returning to their roots, many feel the need to return to the cradle where Judaism originated from. Saying a person is a Zionist just because he comes from Europe or western civilisation does not mean they are not Jewish, it means all the Jews who are returning are Zionists, Zion is one of the Names given to Jerusalem in the Torah, it indicates our connection to the land, it speaks of our belief that we may return to the land and that we belong to the land, nothing more.

    • Thanks for this excellent blog. I’ve lived and worked in Israel with people of various religions, nationalities, colors, and opinions. People got along. Why shouldn’t they?

      Even my Irish Catholic and Protestant neighbours shared a dwelling in peace. Today monsters are slitting the throats of elderly women and children. Is that a fair representation of “the religion of peace”?

      Just asking…

  3. Dear “Admin”, please provide links for “This has been well documented by British government reports from Transjordan”. If we talk among us, being vague may be fine (maybe) but when talking with the outside world this is not enough. Thanks!

    • Its very tiring to deal with Muslim arguments because its never constructive, nor is there any actual interest to read or know facts. The whole internet is there for you, if you don’t want to believe anything we repost. There are hundreds of articles and references in this blog alone. Go through them. But you don’t want to. We can’t waste time babysit Islamists with their endless lying and hate ideology.

      • Well, dear Admin, you are dealing with Muslim arguments in this very your article so I do not know what you are talking about really. Anyway there are many people outside (arabs but mainly not) that are ready to hear our arguments only if we provide the fonts. This is a fact not my opinion. Thus if you have a link to these reports you just do a favor to me and to all the people that are on our side. If you do not have the links does this mean that you pretend from your readers to do the basic researches that you, as the article writer, should do?

      • So why not go through the articles and the references then? And as far as British census records you can access them direct from the government website. The real issue is that people who pose their questions as an argument are not really interested at all to make the effort to research the subject. And if we provide references and details, that too is argued against. So its a no win situation. Those who want to know, make the effort to research the references. You want to buy into the Islamist agenda, and the perpetual lie that “Palestinians” somehow are victims. This argument is used in Jihad all over the world. Its a common jihad strategy used by Muslims not only in Gaza and West Bank but in India, Burma, Russia, Thailand, Indonesia, – just about anywhere.

      • The challenge & frustration in addressing the so-called ‘Muslim’ arguments is that pro-Palestinians will literally say anything, regardless of factual, historical or even logical accuracy. Their leaders just make shit up and repeat it 3 times and voila! It’s suddenly true.
        How do you constructively argue with a person or group who will make a willfully false statement and stick to it stubbornly, dismissing any conflicting factual information as “zionist propaganda”?
        How do you argue with people who believe Israel was behind the Paris attack? Even ISIS? How do you argue with people who deny facts and basic logic and quite simply don’t want to know?
        More importantly, what’s the point?

  4. I do not even know with whom I’m discussing … but I’m just asking for links because this will help my amateur activity of saying how the things really are (and incidentally supporting Israel of course) and you say that I keep the islamic agenda alive? So disappointing, “Admin”. The day I’ll lose my job I may have time to enter the british government website and search what you already supposedly found and mysteriously do not want to share … because you are a serious person and already found it, right?

    • We have over 12 million readers…. You need to make some effort on your own. This is a FREE blog. We don’t have time to serve 12 million readers who are too lazy to read the content they argue against.

      • Admin you’re wrong. No authoritative literature is trusted without supporting evidence, it is your responsibility to substantiate your position. Tghis is what a quality reference looks like, take note! 1. Dio Cassius, History of the Romans, lxix, 12-14, cited by de Haas, History, pp. 55-56. De Haas adds: “In the third of the Schweich Lectures of 1922 the late Israel Abrahams (‘Campains in Palestine from Alexander the Great’ London, 1927) belittles Dio, Cassius’ record of this war, and repeats the suggestion that the Jews were influenced by Hadrian ‘consent to the rebuilding of the Temple.’ This rebuilding myth, depending upon the alleged visit of Hadrian to Palestine on the death of Trajan, has been fully dealt with by Henderson in his biography of Hadrian. All the dimensions of the war, its gravity, and its duration, are fully attested by the inscriptions relating to the legions and by the honors distributed at the end of the campaign. The archeological records, carefully analyzed, support Dio Cassius and not his would-be corrector.

Hasselquist joined a party of four thousand pilgrims who went to Jericho under an escort of three hundred soldiers.

      • We’re not writing a book for you to read for free. If we had more time and were perhaps paid for our work, surely we would do in-depth research into references.

        We’re providing quick reports and articles that people can research further. You’re quoting books – and about what? Not about this subject. About the photographs of Felix Bonfils? No matter what writings you quote the photos show that even in 1899 there was no “Palestinians” in their so called “homeland”. Funny that the real land owners who sold the lots in private ownership were Lebanese Christians and not “Palestinians”. If you think you have references contradicting the facts that Felix Bonfils took 9,000 photographs from the Middle East and from the British Mandate on several journeys then post your references. The photos prove what seems to have been a common statement about the British Mandate until the “Palestinian” fairytale was created after the Israeli borders (which included Jordan) were already drawn. In other words, they clearly prove that “Palestinians” did not have their presence in the British Mandate and had never been displaced.

        In 1857, the British consul in Palestine, James Finn, reported: “The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is that of a body of population.” [James Finn to the Earl of Clarendon, September 15, 1857]

        In 1866, W.M. Thomson writes: “How melancholy is this utter desolation. Not a house, not a trace of inhabitants, not even shepherds, to relieve the dull monotony … Much of the country through which we have been rambling for a week appears never to have been inhabited, or even cultivated; and there are other parts, you say, still more barren.” [In “A History of the Jews” by Paul Johnson, page 321]

        In 1874, Reverend Samuel Manning wrote: “But where were the inhabitants? This fertile plain, which might support an immense population, is almost a solitude…. Day by day we were to learn afresh the lesson now forced upon us, that the denunciations of ancient prophecy have been fulfilled to the very letter — “the land is left void and desolate and without inhabitants.” (Jeremiah, ch.44 v.22)

    • Everything admin has posted is easily verifiable. The fact that it supports Israel’s legitimacy is a product of research using unbiased, respectable, verifiable sources…. and maybe you should reconsider your position if all the actual verifiable facts point to Israel’s legitimacy.

      • We’re not jewish at all and have no jewish background or affiliation. So if anyone accuses us of biases, they’re simply making it up. All content is based purely on curiosity and research into the origin of the conflict.

    • Hate to tell you Andre but the Jews who were invited to come back to Israel are treated very similar to the blacks in America. Most of the Jews who reside in Israel are Euro Jews not descendants, so ironically the Ethiopian Jews have more rights to be there than they do since they have been Jews since the days of Solomon. So my guess is the real evil already exist in Israel and the fake Jews that reside there are there to usher in Armageddon as it was prophesied. Remember being Jewish isn’t a race it’s a religion and anyone can convert just like all the Euro Jews who live there now.

      • Wrong. Better than half of the Jewish population of Israel is either Sephardic or Mizrahi, meaning Non-European. No truth can be predicated upon your lies, therefore, you are dismissed.

      • no…SORRY…….MIZRAHIM JEWS, of which I AM ONE…..are ARAB JEWS….and we were SENT to ISRAEL , expelled from Arab nations in 1948 when ISRAEL was created…..we didn’t convert, we were always Jews, and now , after Israel was created by law in 1948 and out of the desert , we ,LEGALLY created a nation from sand …the world has changed it’s mind…
        in the 30’s the graffiti in Europe said..JEWS GO HOME TO PALESTINE>.so, we did. …NOW THE GRAFFITI says…JEWS OUT OF Palestine…………I AM A MIZRAHIM JEW and we never left the MIDDLE EAST>.and who wanted ISRAEL BEFORE 1948……..?????? NO ONE BUT THE JEWS..
        so thanks , world, thanks for screwing us again…thanks very much…

      • Gordon Chase where do you get this information your using to try and convince us that you live on this planet. You are so far of base it is sad. Start reading reading some history and hopefully some of it will stick in that void you seem to hav3 between your ears.

      • dumbest crap i ever heard, not even worth responding to in any depth other than to state you are a moron

    • Look at Modern Israel today full of Ethiopians rescued in a 48 hour train of aircraft taking them all and bringing them to Israel… They are the purest of Jews – untouched by modern culture. Today they are a vibrant part of Israeli society intermarrying with European Jews as well as Jews from Mideastern countries.
      Just to add to that… I am of Dutch decent – but my wife’s family is From Syria and Turkey! So she is far from White… But that is fine by me, I prefer my chocolate dark!

  5. First of all, Girdon, i myself am not jewish. I did live in Israel for about 4 years. I met many Arabs too. They also worked in the kibbutz where I was living and there was a good relationship at that time. After the intifada’s it was hatd to know who to trust. I also saw the Etheopians come, the so Falasi’s as they were called. A friend if mine who is a nurse was paying visits to them and they were helped very well an nit hated at all. I know there ate hatefull people everywhere ,fanatics too. But generally I did not find the Israeli’s hate the Arabs nor the Etheopians. All the new immigrants are given as much help as possible. This you cannot say about the refugees in the Arab countries arround Israel. Where ever there are earthquakes or other desasters you can find Israeli soldiers to help rescue etc. I never hear that from Arab/ moslim countries.
    .

  6. Dear brothers,

    There is more to life than violence, it is called peace. One whom understands peace starts with himself. Like the one who understood peace said ”be the change that you wish to see in the world”. Yes my friends those were the words of Ghandi. Please do make a change in the world but be sure that is the change you want to see. I want to see peace that is why i try to bring peace cause i want it. My advice to you would be to look further than you can see, see beyond violence there lays peace. For instance search Suriname ,this country has all kinds of races and religions. Even a synagoge next to a mosque, so it is possibility for a change in etnicall dispute.

  7. Even those Jews were Arab Jews from the looks and the traditional clothes, they look more Palestinian than anything. And there are a billion photo allover the web for the majority of the population at that time, Muslims. Jews were a minority even the Christians were bigger than them and remained as Palestinians Christians till today with their pure Palestinian native Middle Eastern clothes and traditions.

    • Sorry Bingo, there were no Arab Jews. Arabs invaded the Levant in 638 C.E Jews predate Arabs on the Levant by a number of millenia-you can call the Jews who lived there when the Arabs showed up, Mizrahi or Sephardi-but we certainly were not Arabs. And they wore their own Traditional Clothing.

  9. Interesting enough article. I was just wondering if you had some citations of creditable websites and books from where your information is coming from so that I may do a bit more reading myself .😊

    • This article is a little misleading in that there was definitely an Arab presence within the land that is today known as Israel, and as a whole, the number of Arabs exceeded the number of Jews. However, in certain places, Jerusalem as one example, the core population was in fact Jewish and it remained as such until the Mufti of Jerusalem organized murderous pogroms against the Jews in the 1920’s and 30’s, with the Jews finally being forced out of Jerusalem altogether in 1948 by the Jordanian army. If you look at census data from that period which was compiled from both Ottomans (pre WW1) and the British (during the Mandate), it shows that with Zionist immigration to Palestine, also came a large influx of Arab immigration who migrated there because of the economy that Zionist Jews were creating. Other Arabs moved to Palestine at the request of the Mufti in order to prevent Jews from becoming the majority population of that region. As for Jerusalem, there was no East Jerusalem … it was just Jerusalem .. and it was primarily a Jewish city. As for the Arabs, none of them identified themselves as Palestinian. Up until 1948, Palestinian meant Jewish. There is ZERO record of any Arab identifying themselves as Palestinian before the mid 1960’s. The burden of proof would be upon naysayers to establish otherwise. The internet is sometimes a wonderful place… you can do a simple google search and see that all I have spoken is true. Hope this helps.

      • First of all, Jews and Christians are also Arabs. I hope you know that. You mean Muslims, right? Ok, PROVE it with authentic documentation from census records – not some statement from a pro-Palestinian left winger quoting another left winger. Show us original and authentic records, just as we keep showing copies of actual letters, photographs and original statements from people who were there at the time – not from people today who imagine what never existed there.

        The mandate was British. There was no water in the area apart from very scarce regions and these regions had Jewish and Christian population who were offspring from the original population that had been there for centuries before Muslim invasion and slaughters.

        So where did the Muslims get water from? And WHERE are all the mosques to have served hundreds of thousands of Muslims people claimed lived there?
        The only presence of Muslims were Ottoman military personnel. And who were the Ottomans? They were Turks and invaders, not “Palestinians”. The Saudi’s considered them to be kafirs and were eager to have them removed and tried to exploit the British to do so, but planned to take the land to themselves to expand their Islamic caliphate. When they realized they were not going to get a free ride on the expulsion of the Ottomans and free land, they started mass immigration into Israel. This mass immigration began in the 1920’s, and in larger numbers, in the late 1930’s. But Israel was provided to the Jews in 1917 although its actual independence was only acquired in 1948.

        The “Arab” (Muslim) presence you talk about is not from actual natives. It’s from a period when Muslim from Egypt and Saudi Arabia started forcing their way in to occupy the area to grab it to themselves, while the British – worried of violent clashes – banned Jews from arriving. It is that periodof ‘hijra’ people use all the time as an argument that the region had more “Arabs” (Muslims) than Jews. No it didn’t. The Muslims forced their way in and Jews were not allowed into their own country. The region had, in fact, a Jewish and Christian majority by far before this mass migration began.

        And that is how the war started. The early “Palestinians” were from Egypt and Saudi Arabia. in fact, they continue to own Egyptian and Saudi passports. Now, of course, Muslims have sent people from all across the Middle East and beyond to pretend they are Palestinians. Newly arrived Muslims have to hand in their original passports and received a “Palestinian” one, and then are taught to repeat that they originate from Palestine. That is how jihad is fought there. Many former Muslims have given testimony to this forgery, including Walid Shoebat. To clear this illegal Muslim occupation up the UN should really do a DNA on these Muslims to expose their jihad and their endless lies and propaganda. This same lie is used all over the world by Muslims to encroach on land, including in Myanmar where Muslims have forced their way into the country lying and claiming they were born there when they actually came from Bangladesh. Myanmar today has the same problem as Israel with Muslim encroachment.

        The land was barren and uninhabitable and used as a THOROUGHFARE for Arabs crossing between east and west of Transjordan and the British Mandate. In addition, the ancestral land was owned (in actual paperwork) by Lebanese landowners who were Christian in origin and did not live there. Later as the new Jewish settlers came to move to Israel they actually and legally purchased the land although Israel and Jordan had been assigned to the Jewish people due to illegal Muslim occupation through history. So, the Jewish people have given up over 50% of their actual land to Muslims but the Muslims still continue to encroach themselves on even more land.

    • Maybe better start reading the British census records. Post the original source so people can see it. The library is not a source but a structure where content is kept…

      • Seriously dude, stop making a fool of yourself. Governmet of Palestine, Report and General Abstracts of the Census of 1922 taken on 23rd of October, 1922, compiled by J.B.

      • So you have no proof then? Why would I need census records from 1922 or the 1960’s and 1990s AFTER hijra? This makes no sense. The proof must supply their presence before the borders were drawn, or else the Muslims are lying and never lost any land at all.

        “Palestinians” were suppose to have been there for “centuries” before they were “occupied” and even claim their population was around 1 million before the borders were drawn in 1917. They have an average 5 children per woman. Do your own calculations what the real “Palestinian” population would have been if 1 million Muslims with 5 children per woman had actually lived there, and what their numbers would be today.

        Every single date you propose is only after 1917 and after Muslims started forcing themselves into the country demanding their caliphate. How is that evidence? Muslims mass immigrated in huge mobs. The Egyptian hijra ended up in Gaza before being stopped to proceed further by the British troops while the Saudi hijra ended up in the West Bank.
        The British government witness accounts say Muslims started forcing themselves on Israel when borders were drawn. The situation was so bad that within a few short months hundreds of thousands of Muslims had moved in and refused to leave. In 1920’s and until the end of 1930’s the biggest illegal masses of Muslims poured in. Are you the victim of lost land when you force yourself illegally on a place, or are you the actual occupier? To this day “Palestinians” continue to own passports from Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The Brits could not control their inflow and the intruders remained. Had they forced them all out we would probably not have seen the endless wars we see today. Its similar to the hijra in Europe today where hundreds of thousands of Muslims pour in every year, illegally. And the same flash mobs they superimpose onto to other countries like Myanmar, Thailand, for example.

        Give us the real census records of all those “Palestinians” from 1850, 1890, 1900, 1910. If they had such real presence in Israel and their land taken from them they must have been there before the borders were drawn.

        Why was Jordan suddenly created? Because Muslims poured in and forced themselves on the region to create their Islamic state. Jordan was initially a part of Israel. The Brits tried to resolve the issue by creating Jordan and leaving the illegals there.

      • Holy shit you are ignorant. You asked for citations and I gave them to you. Furthermore, you jackass, your article is about Palestine of the 19th century when the British Mandate was not until the 20th century. On top of that, everything that you have pontificated is little more a reiteration of what I said in my initial post. You are obviously too dim to recognize that we are actually on the same side. I was merely pointing out that suggestion that no Arab Muslims existed in this region of Palestine is as absurd as the anti-Zionist claims that Jews never had a stronghold anyplace in those same lands. Take the higher ground you idiot. Do not stoop to their level or you loose credibility. Its bad enough that you can’t even use your real name …. that in and of itself hurts your cause. Long story story, I am a historian by trade with archivist training. Perhaps you should hire me as your research and debating capabilities are quite sloppy.

      • For a self professed armchair historian you are pretty high on your own pedestal!

        Your statement “….suggestion that no Arab Muslims existed in this region of Palestine is as absurd” shows you can’t read properly. No one has claimed there was not a single Muslim (or “Arab” as you refer to them, which includes Muslims, Christians, Jews) on the land. But there was no settlements anywhere in the numbers or origin that the Palestinians argue. Their population numbers and growth also does not add up to their fairytales.

        The Palestinian claim to originate from 25,000 “philistines” in the 12th century BC is absurd. The philistines died out before Jesus was even born, long before the creation of Islam.

        I asked you for ORIGINAL proof to the Palestinian argument BEFORE the creation of Israel. You provide references to newly written and recycled content. New opinions are irrelevant. Give us a link to ORIGINAL documents from a government source, if you have any unseen ones – and not after 1917 and from new authors.

        All anyone would need is base facts from the end of 1800 to beginning of 1900, which comes from documentation, photos, government records, census, and witness accounts before Israel was created. Look up the word “original” in a dictionary.

        These numbers should be shown to pro-PAL governments around the world to show that the Muslim presence is illegal and superimposed – in contradiction to what they claim. It won’t help recycling someone’s new opinions.

        My “reiteration” is content I have already published in the blog.

        There are many fools amongst researchers, scientists and historians. How many “established” historians keep insisting that Islam is a religion of peace? I’ve lost count.

        Acquiring the title is no guarantee or evidence of intelligence. Anyone can purchase their way to degrees nowadays, without possessing even common sense. To indicate you would contribute some kind of quality to research and debates is beyond humorous.

        Your best contribution would be to join some Gaza flotilla.

      • Admin, your inability to stay on topic, as well as your tendency to pontificate the obvious, is indicative of an internet educated dimwit. It appears that you mock formal education because in all likelihood, you don’t have any. Im on your team dimwit. You have already lost this exchange… and dimwit… I photographs from a member of the French Foreign legion who toured the entire Middle East at the end of the Ottoman period and there were many Arab Moslems dwelling in the region of Palestine. Were these folks Palestinians? No, of course not. The Palestinian identity is based upon a lie, but for you to assert that Arab Moslems did not dwell there is downright ludicrous. When were all the Mosques built? And again dimwit, by the fact that I need not hide my name as do you, my education and qualifications are easily verifiable. Contrarily, the armchair/internet warrior would somebody who is afraid to identify themselves… That would be you. You should really quit while you are behind. I tried helping you out, too bad you were too full of hubris and ignorance to recognize as such. In closing, my historical knowledge earned me a paycheck, who pays you to be an internet dullard?

      • No assbag, we try not to have uneducated dimwits on our side. Nobody needs a douchebag propagandist such as yourself. I know it must really suck to have put so much time into creating a blog only to get abused on it, but its not my fault that you are so dim. Do yourself a favor and get an education that extends beyond your keyboard. In fact, do all Zionists a favor and stop posting … you are giving us a bad name.

      • You are boring and stupid. I can’t believe you still have your panties in a bunch over over me correcting your misinformation four months ago. I am a Zionist you jackass .. and I suggest you put your internet based education to rest. You are not impressing anybody … especially when you can’t even use you actual name.

      • “Steve” and “Scott” (who seem to be one and the same person from Muslim infested Laurelton, Queens – not exactly a Jewish area):
        Have you actually seen the original records from the British Mandate and the demographics of the so called “palestinian” population? Don’t think so.
        And “Steve” you got to give a far better source to your drivel than some homemade website that keeps quoting sources after the Hijrah took place and not even with origial sources. Go to the authentic, original records from the British government.

      • OMG, you are so blissfully ignorant of history. YES dumb dumb, there were several areas within the Mandate, one of which was Jerusalem, where the majority of the populace was Jewish. However, elsewhere, and as a whole, Jews were in the minority. Seriously, get an education … start by looking at the census data compiled towards the end of the Ottoman era, and into the mandate period. Get ready for some butthurt. SMH … but must really suck getting throttled on your own page.

      • Why do you imagine that a Muslim troll like you have any kind of influence on us? Sitting in Queens in your housing project, ranting on our pages and then claiming we don’t know history is a pretty tall claim!

      • Clearly you do not have a full knowledge of the Jewish people. The reason they were in Egypt in the first place is because Jacob, son of Abraham, living in the land of Canaan had 12 sons whom one of them was Joseph whom his brothers hated and sold him to traders whom then took Joseph to Egypt as a slave. Through much tribulation, Joseph earned his way to being Pharoah’s number one advisor and pretty much in charge of all Egypt directly under the Pharoah. Joseph was blessed with being able to interpret dreams and the dream that the Pharoah had foretold of great famines not only in Egypt but also throughout all the regions far and near. It would be one where all would come to Egypt for food. Now along comes Joseph’s brothers in need of food and Joseph recognizes who they are but they do not him. He goes through a little bit of revenge for what they did to him but he forgives them and through the Pharoah invites all of his family to Egypt where they stayed and through many generations they started to work for the Egyptions and raise children there and then you have the rest of the story of Cecil B Demile’s Classic The Ten Commandments that basically explains of how they are brought out of slavery to the land that the God of Israel promises them. Now jump to the future where King David purchases Jerusalem so he made Jerusalem his capital and there you have the rest of the story. They did not steal it from anybody. They acquired it fair and honestly even though they ended up being forgetful and stupid then losing it for a time until they were in God’s graces once more. The God of Israel then allowed them to start returning to Jerusalem which has always been the land of the Jews as God promised and will be completely one day. And to quote a famous person, ” And now you know the Rest of the story”; Paul Harvey – Journalist. I left a lot of gaps in what happened but essentially it is all true. No Palestineans were there in the land that the Jewish people had been promised. They (Palestineans) were the invaders be it Arabic or what have you. There, I’ve said my two cents worth.

    Regarding a recent article called Not Stealing Palestine, but Purchasing Israel by Daniel Pipes there are a few points that can be made about his comments.

    The flaw in the argument presented can be found when the comparison is made of Israel being the “lesser of two evils” regarding colonizing Palestinian land compared to those who attained land by violent conquests throughout history.

    Too often we hear the same cry of the barbaric rule of the Roman Empire; or how the Crusaders conquered Jerusalem with horses “knee-deep in blood”; or how Hitler used false-flag techniques to achieve the same outcome in Austria & Poland.

    The frequency of these historic events which have shown barbaric examples of occupation doesn’t necessarily make them the standards by which we consider “historical norm” to be a correct methods of occupation. Moreover, simply by using these examples to fuel the argument for justifying Israeli occupation puts Zionist methodology within the same category as the Roman Empire’s brutality.

    There is, however a grave difference between the previous British colonization and the current Zionist occupation. Even though Britain colonized most of the surrounding regions, just as the Ottoman Empire did before them, the colonies were still considered Arab land, only with British military rule. Occupation itself is not illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention, however the Jewish state has not adhered to the rules of the Occupying Power’s responsibility under these laws, engaging in ongoing land confiscations, home demolitions, expanding settlement construction, systematic deportations, civilian displacements, residency revocation, water resource reallocation, economic strangulation, child imprisonment, violent checkpoint misconduct, border blockades, airspace “no-fly” restrictions, and maritime seaport blockades.

    In order to justify these actions, some traditionalists like to claim that the Jews were the original inhabitants of the region so it is their “right” to do as they please with “their” land. However they weren’t the original people of the land. They lived there 3000 years ago when David conquered Goliath, then his son Solomon created a kingdom, then there was civil war two generations later between Judea and Samara, and Nebuchadnezzar conquered and exiled the Jews to Babylon shortly after that. That’s all – four generations. A moment in the history of Jerusalem. People lived before the Jewish rule, and people lived after the Jewish rule. One cannot compare four generations with 1000 years of Arab habitation.

    Starting with the original rallying cry of Zionism – thought up by Israel Zangwill and adopted by Theodor Herzl – the following statement was used from the original Christian quote: “a people without land for a land without people” and that was the first Zionist lie. They knew full well that the region was not a land without people. In fact, they had sent a delegation of three Rabbis to inspect the territory. The message that the Rabbis sent back was “the bride is beautiful, but she is married to another man”. From the very beginning, the Zionists knew that their entire project was based on fabrication.

    During then time when Palestine was under British authority, land ownership within each sub-district (as shown in the figure) shows a significant percentage of Palestinian Arab ownership compared to the Jews and the British forces.

    The cause and effects of the British Mandate when permission was given for a mass Jewish migration in the 1930’s (as a gesture of appreciation for Rothschild’s funding of WWI) caused great unrest throughout the entire region. The populous began growing at such an accelerating rate and in such a small area of land that it had caused massive collisions which resulted in the British government’s decision to halt Jewish immigration. Regardless of this, it led to a large scale illegal Jewish immigration following a bitter conflict with the British authority themselves.

    The simple fact that there was no room for the influx of European Jews had caused the Jews themselves to drive out Arab farmers by sending their own tractors out onto the fields owned and lived by the native people. Violence broke out and neither party stopped ever since.

    While early explanations of the Palestinian refugee crisis alleged that Arab leaders urged them to flee in radio broadcasts so that they wouldn’t get in the way of attacks on Israeli forces, there was no evidence to support this. At the time British and US intelligence, as well as the BBC, were monitoring Arabic language radio broadcasts in the region and none of them recorded exhortations to flee. Rather, there were calls to stay.

    Palestinians today still consist of the largest population of refugees in the world totaling 4.3 million as confirmed by the UNHCR, and are displaced in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. To claim that they sold their land to become refugees is a complete misrepresentation of historical events.

    There are claims that suggest the Jews purchased 10% of the land prior to the mass migration in the late 1930s / early 1940s, and there is in fact evidence to suggest that 10% of the population in the region that was called Palestine were of Jewish heritage; however that still does not include the rest of the land that was either unilaterally declared the state of Israel, annexed, or occupied. Israel’s PR campaigns do not clarify the specific details of the amount of the land that was actually purchased compared to the remainder that was taken by force.

    Accoriding to the statistics in the area, Jews purchased about 7 to 10 percent of the land when they was 2 percent of the population. Also this purchases and the strange jews natinality are illegal because there was not a national government in Palestine to defend the nation rights. The Britain occupation force allowed another foregin flow to steal the land by lack of laws and even that 7-10 percent is illegal because that occupation government of britain was illegal and not beside of the

    And even if, say for argument’s sake, that 10% was legal, it still doesn’t take into account the 55% that was annexed in 1948 even when there was no final decision made for the Partition Plan draft of 1947, and then a further 10% in 1949. In addition to this, the invasion of the entire land in 1967 leaves no reasoning behind the false pretence of a “purchase” of Israel.

    • Thats some great cutting and pasting you have done, but let me help you out … Israel exists … 100% legitimately .. and all of your attempts to delegitimize the Jewish state are nothing but an exercise in futility. Rather than advocate for the destruction of the Jewish state and the ethnic cleansing (murder) of the Jews living there, you would be much better off trying to figure out how to live in peace .. the world has had enough of your bigotry and your jihadist mentality. Grow up kid.

  14. Show me one verse in Torah and bible where it says Abraham Israel and Jacob was Jews…. Abraham (Hebrew: אַבְרָהָם‎ (About this sound listen )), originally Abram, is the first of the three biblical patriarchs. His story, told in chapters 11 through 25 of the Book of Genesis, plays a prominent role in Judaism and Christianity
    The narrative revolves around the themes of posterity and land. He was called by God to leave the house of his father Terah and settle in a land which was already settled by the descendants of Canaan, but God promised it to Abraham and his posterity
    my question is will God ever take a land from someone else and give it Abraham as a promise? For example will God ever take your house land from u and your people and give it to me or someone else as a promise land? is this justice? God will never do injustice with anyone because if he does then he can’t claim the title to be god So the rite full owner of this land is the descendants of Canaan…not Europe jews or any other Middle East Jews this land is in Middle East and the land only belong to the descendants of Canaan…if white Jews claiming for the land then they should go to Europe and search the family tree they will find their forefathers in EU not in the land of Canaan …. This verse of bible clearly proves it is not the word of God it is the word of humans because God will never take a land from someone else and give to me u or Abraham because the land belongs to some ones else not me u or Abraham Torah claims Gd do justice with everyone but by taking the land and giving it to Abraham is the act of injustice….one place Gd says he does justice and other place he is doing injustice by taking the land and giving it to Abraham clear cut contradiction in Torah… Sorry for bad English

  15. israeli archaeologists said we have no evidence of Solomon temple at Al aqsa mosque? Dude the pictures u posted it is doesn’t proves any thing we need evidence even I can show u pics of Palestinian so it doesn’t make any sense…plz go back to 1798 the Palestine was under the rule of France and Jews from EU started coming to the land when the land was occupied by franch…..in 1917 What was the Balfour Declaration?
    There are only a few documents in Middle Eastern history which have as much influence as the Balfour Declaration. The Balfour Declaration was sent as a 67-word statement contained within the short letter addressed to the British Foreign Secretary, Lord Arthur Balfour on November 2, 1917. The declaration acknowledged the establishment of a Jewish home in Palestine. The statement of the Declaration read as.
    His Majesty’s Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
    The letter was addressed to Lionel Walter Rothschild, a British banker and a Zionist activist, who drafted the declaration with the help of fellow Zionists Chaim Weizmann and Nahum Sokolow. The declaration proved to be in line with the wishes of Zionist leaders who hoped for a homeland in Palestine and designed the intense immigration of Jews from all over the world to Palestine.
    As Balfour was a part of the liberal government under Prime Minister David Lloyd George, they formed a public opinion that Jews have undergone injustices for a long time for which the West is to be blamed. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the West to find and establish a Jewish homeland.
    The motivation for achieving a separate homeland for Jews was aided by fundamentalist Christians who encouraged the idea for two reasons; to depopulate their own lands of Jews and to fulfill the Biblical prophecy, according to which the return of the Christ will occur after the establishment of a Jewish kingdom in the Holy Land.
    The Balfour Declaration met with criticism and controversies from the start, mainly because of its ambiguous text. The interpreters claimed that it did not state the idea of establishing a unique Jewish state rather a homeland where they would live alongside Palestinians and other Arabs. It was also pointed out that the second part of the declaration about the protection of the rights of Palestinian Arabs could be taken by them as the British endorsing Arab autonomy. Britain indeed protected Arab rights at some points during the mandate but its role remained contradictory nonetheless.
    In 1917, at the time of the declaration, Palestinian community was 90% of the total population while Jews amounting to around 50,000 only. By the time of Israel’s declaration of independence in 1947, this Jewish population increased to 600,000. By this time, Jews had been actively establishing quasi-governmental institutions, provoking resistance from Palestinians which occurred in the form of minor uprisings in 1933, 1929, 1921 and 1920 and a major one which lasted from 1936 to 1939 which is also known as Palestine Arab Revolt.
    The Balfour Declaration is said to have laid the foundation for the formation of the state of Israel which finally happened thirty-one years later in 1948……
    “The phrase ‘the establishment in Palestine of a National Home for the Jewish people’ was intended and understood by all concerned to mean at the time of the Balfour Declaration that Palestine would ultimately become a ‘Jewish Commonwealth’ or a ‘Jewish State’, if only Jews came and settled there in sufficient numbers.”[25]……James Balfour said he is giving the EU Jews the land Palestine and Jews says they purchased the land of Israel who is telling the truth James Balfour of Jews or it is stolen

  17. Hahahaha making up your own version of history works well when the people involved are extinct, but when they’re here and alive, it just makes look like complete fools.

    • You seem to be the fool. People don’t magically reappear in 1967 after being extinct since the 8th century BC.
      Zahir Muhsein, PLO leader, 1977: “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism for tactical reasons.”

  18. Who are the so called “Palestinians”?

    Arab migrants of different tribes. They came from different countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe, in search for employment or food. Some came during the Ottoman empire, others were imported by the British mandatory, to work in Haifa and Akko harbors from Triploy and Sidon. Others came from Jordan, Iraq and saudi Arabia and settled in Judea and Samaria during the occupation of Jordan (1948-1967). Gaza people are mostly from Egypt, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and further west countries of North Africa

  21. The British Mandate didn’t take place until 1924. The British Mandate only proves that the British had control of the land known as Palestine. Palestine did exist before the British mandate. Jews, Christians, and Arabs were found in the region. Jews were a minority and christians hardly even noted on census records because their numbers were so small.

    The Palestinian diaspora can be found around the world. They are in every major city in South America, and can be found in US census records. Immigrants from “Palestine, Arabia” are found in US census records prior to 1923.

    UN census records of Palestine, and letters regarding the establishment of Israel prove that the UN and the US warned Britain that Jews would have serious problems if the nation of Israel was established.

    There are 2 major problems that Jews should be concerned about and they have nothing to do with the Arabs.

    1.) The EU Oligarchs responsible for the establishment of Israel, were also funding Nazi Germany via Bank of England. This has been documented along with the fact the the British House of “Windsor” is actually German.
    The Bank of England was funding Hitler’s Germany all along. This fact changes the narrative of WWII is so many ways.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/bank-of-england/10213988/Never-mind-the-Czech-gold-the-Nazis-stole….html

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/bank-of-england/10212234/Bank-of-England-helped-the-Nazis-to-sell-plundered-gold.html

    The current occupants of Buckingham Palace are actually from the Bavarian House of Hanover is little name change and that was the end of that story. The British knew they were placing Jews between a rock and a hard place and as Arabs know too well the terrorism would not happen without government complicity. Israel nuclear neighbors are enabled by NATO despite pretense to the contrary. Does anybody question why Obama is engaging in regime change in the ME with the installation of “radical” leadership but won’t touch Hamas or Iran?

    2.) The Jews behind zionism could be considered fake Jews. We know Jews were not allowed in Anglo nations such as Britain until the 1600’s. The EU Oligarchs had a long history of treachery towards Jews. After the Spanish inquisition, which expelled heretics known as “Alumrados” From Iberia. There were groups pretending to be catholic, but actually practiced occult forms of Kabbalah etc. Many migrated out Iberia and into Germany, Holland, and Britain. Britain took the opportunity to allow wealthy merchants to do business in England regardless of religion. We can assume they could have pretended to be Jewish as well. Martin Luther’s writings prove the only ones protestant oligarchs hated more than jews were catholics.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alumbrados

    “Reform” Judaism, just like protestant reform was born in German and Britain.

    The families behind zionism, were the same people behind reform judaism. Most were not practicing jews and the initial reform in christianity simply resulted in religion being under the control of the monarchy. Jewish reform placed control under Rabbi du jour.

    Those behind zionism were fake jews. God is bigger than any of this. No doubt he protect his people. We are all victims of treasonous sockpuppet leaders beholden to something other than the people. God lives all of us, especially the least of us.

    Sir Moses Montefiore, even though he was promoted to superhero status in his time. Authors acknowledge Moses Montefiore wasn’t always a practicing jew, but claim he changed late in life and returned to his judaic roots. The Israeli masonic lodge, Montefiore Lodge no. 78, honored the lifelong mason in 1996. http://www.freemasons-freemasonry.com/montef.html

    “Upon reaching the ripe age of 80 years, “gil hagvurah” in Hebrew tradition, English Jewish Masons founded in 1864 the Montefiore Lodge #1017 in London. Later, in 1888, a second Montefiore Lodge (#753) was founded in Glasgow and in 1996 our Lodge, Montefiore Lodge of Installed Masters #78, was consecrated in Tel Aviv.”

    Both Rothschild and Montefiore families are credited for “Zionism”. Claude Montefiore, the grandson of Sir Moses introduced the new “Reform Judaism” or Progressive Judaism which had liberal views such as accepting homosexuality.

    http://www.britannica.com/biography/Claude-Joseph-Goldsmid-Montefiore

    Another member of the “jewish” Montefiore family, Reverend Hugh Montefiore, led a protestant Church of England. Hugh Montefiore told members of his congregation that “Jesus had homosexual tendencies.”

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/1489950/The-Right-Reverend-Hugh-Montefiore.html

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_Judaism

    It is interesting that religious “reform” that occurred for christianity in German and England, also happened in those two nations for Judaism centuries later. There are many Jewish anti-Zionist organizations that recognize the deception in the creation of Israel, but mostly reject the “fake judaism” or secularism which in truth oppose traditional faiths. Israel outwardly doesn’t recognize reform judaism aka progressive judaism aka liberal judaism, but these groups are heavily funded by Federal Israeli agencies.

    This link regarding the establishment of Israel is impeccably referenced, and should be a case study of how the West, including Jews, have been deceived.

  22. hahaha one thing being stupid and writing something like this( i wouldn’t care less,because there are more stupid people who did or wrote worst stuff that don’t deserve my attention).. but being a journalist and knowing nth about journalism and also writing something as stupid as this… “ironic”… are u sure u passed 12th grade ? did u even go to school ? i could re-post what u wrote and actually would be enough proof that you are an idiot more than Palestinians did not exist… I would like to help you out though.. I suggest to leave your so called ” Journalism” and try to be a comedian.. trsut me you have a better chance…

  23. Clearly those pictures demonstrate that the photographer waited for people to pass and the scene was empty before he took pictures. What a BS article with BS pictures. Interesting that pictures show empty buildings and yet WHO BUILT those buildings?

    Who are these people then?

  25. Beautiful, enlightening article and photographs. Just the title contains an error: the British Mandate dated from 1919 when the League of Nations assigned the administration of parts of the Middle East previously under the defeated Ottoman Empire to Britain and France.

  26. Well, why doesn’t everyone ignore people’s religion and ethnicity and just know that everyone is a divine extension from the creator…..geez…get with the program. We are all equal.

  27. The bottom line is that the God of Israel gave this land to His children, the Jews. HaShem Adonai will send the Moshiach to declare this Truth at the Mount of Olives. Even the muslims know this and thought that if they walled off the eastern gate and made a cemetary next to it, that would prevent our Messiah from returning. Every knee shall bow when the Messiah Ben David comes to declare Jerusalem as the eternal capitol of Israel!

    • Total tosh.

      Because it was given to us the English, by G-D, when i had a revelation & in a vision, G-D came to me. Where upon he announced, that we English are the chosen, should occupy the land. Sounds good to me, well, better than the original story, for that is what it is, a story!

      If you believe your story, then i believe mine, hence, please leave the land, as we want to move in within next couple of months. We’re packing now, got the flights booked!

      We can get rid of that unsightly Israeli government building, where the land was donated by the Rothschild’s, along Rothschild Avenue. Along with the Knesset, built on Rothschild’s donated land.

  28. Just a corrective: St. Stephen was martyred in the 1st century, shortly after Christ’s Ascension. Within a few years, NOT in the “mid 4th century CE.”
