If "Palestinians" allegedly r the historic inhabitants of the Holy Land then...
Why is it that all historic documents mention Jews as the native inhabitants & Greeks, Romans & others as foreigners dwelling in Judea
*BUT
not of a Palestinian people either as native or foreign?
Why is there is no reference to any #Palestinian people in the Qur'an, although it is tradition that Mohammed was once in #Jerusalem.

It appears evident that even he did not meet any Palestinian in Jerusalem or in his whole life, neither did his successors.
Caliph Salahuddin al-Ayyub (Saladin), knew the Jews & kindly invited them to resettle in Jerusalem(which he recognized as their Homeland)
To claim that Palestinians r the original people of Israel is not only against secular history BUT also against Islamic history!

#TodayInHistory #OTD 1929: 67 Jews murdered in #Hebron, second holy city of Judaism, ending 3000 years of Jewish presence.
False rumors and inflammatory sermons in mosques in the previous weeks had already caused Jewish deaths and wounded in the Old City of #Jerusalem.
The Jewish community of Hebron was around 700 people out of 20,000.
False rumors of a massacre of Arabs in Jerusalem spread by infamous Mufti of Jerusalem Amin Al-Husseini, who would be the host of Hitler during WW II, triggered the #pogrom in Hebron.
The killings started on the 23rd, with the attack by a mob of the Hebron Yeshiva.
On the 24th morning, a mob started attacking Jewish homes, murdering, raping and beating Jewish residents.

One of #Canada #Ottawa's largest mosques loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’ via @StewartBellNP
globalnews.ca/news/4373959/o…
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.

How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go. jpost.com/Israel-News/Ab…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas. jpost.com/Breaking-News/…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough. jpost.com/Israel-News/PL…

‼️STOP THE LIES - "Palestinians must come to the table for talks"
Reminder👇😡👉 Mar 16, 2015
#Netanyahu Says NO Palestinian State While He's In Charge!
He also plans to continue building #WestBank settlements in #Palestine.
#BoycottIsrael #BDS #Occupation #ICC4Israel #Gaza
#Israel-i voters endorse #Netanyahu's policies
March, 2015 Bibi said he wouldn't allow the creation of a Palestinian state.
He explicitly stated that the reason creation of settlements is to block #Palestinians access to #Jerusalem & the establishment of a continuous state
#BDS
What #Palestinians Think Of #Netanyahu's 'No #Palestine' Statement👇
Benjamin Netanyahu made a promise to never allow a Palestinian state if he was elected. That played well with a significant portion of #Israel-is – but what do Palestinians think about his bold statement?

Extraordinary.

Acc. to @BarakRavid sources, #Russia has told #Israel that it'll seek to force #Iran 100km away from #Israeli-held 1974 #Golan line.

That means all territory west of the red line on map (L).

= A truly wild fantasy.

Look where #Iran is now (R); per @ETANA_Syria:
@BarakRavid @ETANA_Syria #Israel has shot down an #Assad regime Sukhoi fighter jet, which took off from T4 Airbase & flew 2km into Israeli airspace.

x2 Patriot SAM missiles were used & multiple messages sent in multiple languages prior to shoot-down.

Another example of #Russia’s value in de-escalation.
@BarakRavid @ETANA_Syria #pt: Just 36hrs ago was #Israel's first operational use of the "David’s Sling" SAM system, used to down #Assad ballistic missiles.

Yesterday, #Russia’s MFA & MOD visited #Jerusalem to firm-up their security arrangements with #Israel.

I wrote that #Moscow is incapable - clearly.

Support for the #Palestinians gathers pace in #Trump’s #America

@realDonaldTrump’s decision to withdraw #US from #UN Human Rights Council was an attempt to shield #Israel from accountability, but it may have backfired among voters in his own backyard

middleeastmonitor.com/20180624-suppo…
If you dance to #TelAviv’s tune—&, sadly, #Trump does—then you believe that the only folk who support #Palestinians are either religion-hating, secular Lefties or radical #Islamists & #Hamas cheerleaders who hang out on the fringes of society. The reality is quite different.
The reality is different as was illustrated admirably at a remarkable gathering of mainstream #American #Christians in St Louis, #Missouri when the #Presbyterian Church overwhelmingly adopted a No. of robust resolutions in solidarity with #Palestine at its 223rd General Assembly

Following are the 4 largest gatherings against Israel over the last few years, with tens of thousands of Anti-Zionist #Orthodox #Jews.

1) At the Barclays Stadium last year 06.11.2017:
Rabbi Shappiro: "The Jewish People Have No State!"
Listen:
Rabbi: "The State of Israel has as much to do with Judaism or Jewish Identity as China or Korea does...! They should stop calling themselves a Jewish State because that's a lie! They can call themselves, maybe Herzlstan...!"
-Thousands of Jews applauding
2) On June 9, 2013, tens of thousands of Orthodox Jews assembled on the streets of NY to protest against the existence of the State of Israel, and to condemn it's current evil decree to forcibly draft yeshiva students to their Army:

Is #Israel an '#Apartheid' state? This #UN report says yes
If being an apartheid state means committing inhumane acts, systematic oppression & domination by one racial group over another, then Israel is guilty, a UN panel has determined in a new report
wapo.st/2m5aHoJ?tid=ss…
#Apartheid is a term once associated with #SouthAfrica's white-rule system, but now represents a broad term for crimes against humanity under international law & the Rome Statute that set up International Criminal Court @ICC, said the report in its executive summary on Wednesday
#Israelis who find the term #Apartheid inaccurate & inflammatory when applied to their conflict with the #Palestinians, immediately slammed the report-A government spokesman even compared it to #Nazi tabloid Der Sturmer which promoted Nazi propaganda & was virulently #Antisemitic

#US Embassy celebrations: A who's who of the Israeli arms trade

972mag.com/u-s-embassy-op… via @972mag
Only 30 countries took part in the #Israeli Foreign Ministry’s gala celebrating the new #US embassy in #Jerusalem last week. Not coincidentally, Israel’s ties with most of them are based on arms sales used to carry out gross human rights violations
Following 1967 War, #Israel began a diplomatic campaign to convince countries to oppose resolutions demanding it to unilaterally withdraw from the occupied territories. Israel attempted to buy votes of "murderous dictatorships" & military juntas in exchange for weapons & training

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...

Curious what facts MSM is not reporting about today's planned tantrum in #Gaza that Palestinians call the #GazaReturnMarch? Look no further and unwind this thread 👇 #Israel
These planned riots on the border between #Israel and #Gaza have been taking place for 6+ weeks and expected to culminate on May 15th (tomorrow), to coincide with the Palestinian “Nakba” day.
#GazaReturnMarch is of course named after the so-called "right of return" of 5 - 7 million refugees and their offspring because Palestinians are invested in the mythology that they flood and strangle #Israel, a country of 8 million. Keep dreaming.

#JerusalemDay today, commemorating the reunification of the Holy City in the 1967 war on this Hebrew date.
It wasn't always like this.
The Jews were exiled from #Jerusalem in 70 CE when the Romans destroyed the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount and took Jews to Rome as slaves.
Longed to return - "Next year in Jerusalem" was their prayer.
Some Jews never left the Holy Land, and they eked out a living over the years. But in recent centuries they began their return. Jews were a majority in #Jerusalem for at least 170 years.
