Palestinians ‘Peoplehood’ Based on a Big Lie

editor 11 April 2018

By Eli E. Hertz.. The Palestinians claim that they are an ancient and indigenous people fails to stand up to historic scrutiny. Most Palestinian Arabs were newcomers to British Mandate Palestine. Until the 1967 Six-Day War made it expedient for Arabs to create a Palestinian peoplehood, local Arabs simply considered themselves part of the ‘great Arab nation’ or ‘southern Syrians.’

“Repeat a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it.”
Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels

“All [that Palestinians] can agree on as a community is what they want to destroy, not what they want to build.”
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman

There is no age-old Palestinian people. Most so-called Palestinians are relative newcomers to the Land of Israel. (more…)


Egypt Razes Gaza Border Houses, and No One Cares

editor 6 November 2014

By Ryan Jones.. Voices in the international community make a habit of calling out Israel each and every time it implements security measures that adversely affect the Palestinian Arabs. This is done in such a way that suggests the well-being of average Palestinians is their primary concern. Events over the past week demonstrated otherwise. (more…)


Palestinian Terror in the City of Peace

editor 9 October 2014

By Eli E. Hertz.. Palestinian Arabs have concentrated many of their terrorist attacks on Jews in Jerusalem, hoping to win the city by an onslaught of suicide bombers who seek to make life in the City of Peace unbearable. But this is not a new tactic. Arab strategy to turn Jerusalem into a battleground began in 1920. Unfortunately, Arab leaders often turn to violence to gain what they were unable to achieve at the negotiating table. When talks broke down at Camp David in 2000, Palestinian Arab leaders unleashed the al-Aqsa Intifada, which amounted to a full-blown guerrilla war against Israel. (more…)


IDF clears land mines from Arab fields near Bethlehem

editor 24 May 2013

By Israel Today Staff.. Once again demonstrating that it harbors no ill will toward the Palestinian Arabs, the Israeli army recently got to work clearing land mines from Arab-owned fields in the vicinity of Bethlehem. Well, of course the Israeli army should do so, it probably planted those mines in the first place! Except that, no, the IDF didn’t do so. The mines were planted by the Jordanian army prior to the Six Day War in 1967. (more…)


Palestinians less concerned about ‘settlements’ than poverty

editor 9 April 2013

By Israel Today Staff.. A survey of Palestinian Arabs finds that the presence of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the so-called “West Bank”, is only the third most important issue to them at present. More important in their eyes are growing poverty and the deep rifts that remain in Palestinian society as a result of the activities of groups like Hamas.

Gaza and International Law

editor 19 November 2012

By Eli E. Hertz.. What unites Palestinian Arabs is their opposition to Jewish nationalism and a desire to stamp it out – not aspirations for their own state. Murdering Jews is a collective Palestinian Arab effort that requires a collectively sensible response. (more…)


UN Resolution 194 and the “Right of Return”

editor 11 October 2012

By Eli. E. Hertz.. Resolution 194, adopted by the UN General Assembly on December 11, 1948, addressed a host of issues, but only one paragraph out of 15 dealt with refugees created by the conflict. Resolution 194 attempted to create the tools required to reach a truce in the region. It established a conciliation commission with representatives from the United States, France and Turkey to replace the UN mediator. The commission was charged with achieving “a final settlement of all questions between … governments and authorities concerned.” (more…)
