ARAB REJECTION OF ISRAEL!



 

Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,

The PLO had declared, “The struggle with the Zionist enemy (meaning Israel) is not a struggle about Israel's borders, but about Israel's existence.” This is a one way street - not to peace but… conflict and war. Hamas continually vows that NO Jewish state can exist among the Islamic states! Israel which consists of more than seven million Jews is surrounded by more than Five hundred million Arabs.

There is a JOKE that illustrates the absurdity of it all…

“The Prime Minister of Israel sits down with Mahmoud Abbas at the beginning of negotiations regarding the resolution of the conflict. The Prime Minister requests that he be allowed to begin the meeting with a story. Abbas replies, “Of course.”

The Prime Minister begins his story: “Years before the Israelites came to the Promised Land and settled here, Moses led them for 40 years through the desert. The Israelites began complaining that they were thirsty and, lo and behold, a miracle occurred and a stream appeared before them. They drank their fill and then decided to take advantage of the stream to do some bathing ~ including Moses.

When Moses came out of the water, he found that all his clothing was missing. “Who took my clothes?” Moses asked those around him. “It was the Palestinians,” replied the Israelites. “Wait a minute” Abbas exclaimed and immediately stood up and loudly objected… “That is absurd! How can you blame this on them?  There were NO Palestinians during the time of Moses!”

“All right,” replied the Prime Minister, “Now that we've got that settled, let's begin our negotiations!”

Unfortunately it is NOT so evident… The Palestinians and Muslims all insist there can be NO Jewish State among the Islamic states. This little piece of real state the size of the Kruger National Park is an upsetting testimony of God’s unconditional love and promises for Israel, to them… But, God can disturb those who deny Him in history and personally in their lives.

The one true God, Yahweh, has said in Psalm 129:5: “Let all those who hate Zion be put to shame and turned back.”

The history of the Arab-Israeli conflict reveals 24 major events when compromise was offered since the 1920s, dating from pre-state, League of Nations Mandate to the present time. Plan after plan, including patently pro-Arab proposals, were put on the table. Since the 1993 Oslo Accords, 15 agreements and memorandums have been signed. Let’s briefly examine some of these agreements and Arab response or compliance in each case. Arab claims that the Israeli “Occupation” prevents peace is nothing more than a red herring. It is not “The Occupation” that Arabs reject; it is Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish, sovereign and legitimate political entity.

“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, so that the name Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:4

What prevents achieving ‘peace’ is the Arab’s rejecting Israel’s right to exist, which began in the 1880s when the first Jewish immigrants returned to the land of Israel. Since the 1920s, long before the establishment of Israel or the 1967 Six-Day War, Palestinian Arabs have used a combination of diplomatic moves and violence, particularly terrorism against Jewish civilians, effectively rejecting every form of compromise.

At the core of the Arab-Israeli conflict is the Arab world's refusal to accept a non-Muslim political entity in the Middle East! “Peace” requires an Arab world that recognizes Israel as a legitimate political entity. Legitimacy means a State with viable and defendable borders where the Jews can exercise their own rights of self-determination by virtue of demographics (i.e., a Jewish majority). The Arab refusal to recognize Israel and their attempts to destroy the Jewish state are among the defining characteristics of Palestinian society.

Measures designed to destroy Israel vary from use of force (through wars, Intifada, violent riots, revolts and terrorism) to use of economic and demographic forces (economic boycotts, demands for jobs in Israel, Palestinian infiltration into Israel without visas or other permits). Their demands are also that Palestinian refugees from 1948 and their descendants be allowed to return to Israel. Absolute hatred and intolerance towards ‘non-Muslim political entities’ is a fate Jews shared with the Maronite Christians in Lebanon, even though Israel inhabits no more than 0.01 percent of the Middle Eastern landscape.

For almost 100 years, Palestinian behaviour has been based on political violence and rejection of the State of Israel The “Palestinian refugee problem” created in 1948 did not spark those strategies, nor did the “Occupation” of the Territories in the wake of the 1967 Six-Day War, which brought Israeli control over West Bank (Judea and Samaria) and Gaza.

Arabs have rejected the presence of Jews with political aspirations to rebuild their Ancient Biblical homeland since the beginning of political Zionism. When in 1891 the number of Jewish immigrants leaving the country equalled the number of new arrivals, and nine years of Zionist endeavour, had produced barely a dozen struggling and insolvent Jewish agricultural settlements. Arab leaders from Jerusalem called upon the Ottoman administration to ban Jewish immigration and the sale of land to Jews.  BUT, nothing was mentioned or any action taken against the illegal Arab infiltration of illegal immigrants from the surrounding Arab nations.

At each occasion when attempts to reach a ‘live-and-let-live’ solution have been reached, Arab responses have boiled down to a two-pronged offensive that dovetails diplomacy with violence. In short, the Arabs, and particularly the Palestinians, have refused to recognize Israel as a legitimate state or to negotiate genuine compromise. Instead, they have tried to drive the Jews out through violence and terror.



 

We must remember that the reason for Israel's existence today is Biblical rather than political. The Bible says that God chose a special people to be His witness to the world…

“You are My witnesses,” declares the LORD,”… “And My servant whom I have chosen”... “And what nation on the earth is like Your people Israel, whom God went to redeem for Himself as a people and to make a name for Himself, and to do a great thing for You and awesome things for Your land ...” (Isaiah 43.10; 2 Samuel 7:23)

A hidden movement… illegal Arab Immigration!

Why was illegal Arab immigration dismissed as insignificant or as “about 1 percent of the population?” One must pause here to question – how could a condition as chronic and serious in its implications as the artificial inflation of (existing) Arab population by Arab immigration into Jewish areas of Western Palestine in the early 1900’s remain unchallenged and unrecorded by the British Mandatory Government?

Here are some facts taken from the archives of the public record offices in London Kew Gardens:

“It is agreed that refugees who would appear to be Syrian, Lebanese or Palestinian by nationality may be admitted into Palestine without Passport or Visa.” Controller of Permits, Jerusalem, 1926

“Many Damascene (people from Damascus, Syria) have found their way into Palestine without a proper permit. These refuges are scattered all over Palestine…” 25th October, 1926.

In an Immigration Memo, “Druze’s who are in Palestine without permission,” A Mukhtar (Village Chief) could vouch for the illegal immigrants.

Charges were also dismissed against illegal immigrants on the grounds that they had friends in Palestine who could look after them. Comments from the British Representative in Jeddah revealed that the illicit immigrants were thugs and terrorists who entered Palestine for the purpose of wrecking havoc and inciting mob violence!

These are just a few of the many documented HIDDEN illegal Arab immigrant facts.  For the fear of offending Arab leaders the immigrants were apparently provided the loophole and the “official” fraudulent means to prevent their deportation as illegal immigrants. “Such Arab entrance will quickly satisfy demands for additional labour… and will thereby virtually leave no room in the labour category for Jewish immigrants from outside for Palestine.” (Palestine Partitioning Report 1938)

1920 - The year Arabs discovered “Palestine”… Judging from news reports, one might think that Palestinian nationalism has been active as long as Jews and Arabs have been living at the eastern edge of the Mediterra­nean Sea and that the Palestinians have always sought an independent Palestinian state. In fact, this is far from the truth!

The idea of an Arab state resting between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea is, rather, a twentieth-century concept… In­deed, its origins can be traced with surpris­ing precision to a single year — 1920! In January 1920, Palestinian nationalism hard­ly existed but by December of that critical year, it had been born. No one ever imagined a Pales­tinian nation, and for good reason… Palestine had always been, and at that time remained, a Jewish and Christian concept, utterly for­eign to the Muslims. Muslims look to MECCA not Palestine for their most sacred landmarks. Further, there has never been an “independent” state in Palestine ruled by Muslims; such states that were brought into existence were ruled either by Jews or Christians.

Muslim distaste for the very notion of Palestine was confirmed in April 1920, when the British authorities carved out a Palestinian entity. The Muslims’ response was one of extreme suspicion. They saw the outline of this territory as a victory for the Zionists; in their more paranoid moments, they even thought it reflected linger­ing Crusader impulses among the British. Palestine was brought into existence by Brit­ish imperial authorities, not by Arabs; fur­ther, Muslims felt defeated by the British carving out of a distinct Palestinian entity. There is no Palestinian endorsing this act when it took place in 1920. To the contrary, every recorded opinion suggests intense opposition.

1917 Balfour Declaration… The British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Arthur Balfour, wrote to Lord Rothschild: “His Majesty's Government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” Balfour underscored that “Nothing shall be done, which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.”

Arab Response…Rejection and Violence! In the springs of 1920 and 1921, the Arabs instigated anti-Jewish riots in cities where both Arabs and Jews lived. Attacks were also launched on Jewish settlements in the countryside, leading to 13 deaths in 1920. Another 47 Jews were killed and 140 wounded in settlements and Jewish neighbourhoods the following year.

1922 Churchill White Paper… The Arabs continued their demand that Jewish immigration cease, despite records, which show that in 1922 there were only 80,000 Jews in the entire country. Seeking to appease the Arabs, the British partitioned the Palestine Mandate: Jews were prohibited from settling in 77 percent of Mandate Palestine — all the territory east of the Jordan River. They were allowed to settle anywhere in western Palestine (confusing as it is ironically… including today's Israel proper, the so-called West Bank and Gaza.). Thus, Eastern Palestine, renamed Transjordan, was removed from the area that was set aside for the Jewish National Home…in the historic Balfour Declaration and handed over to the Emir Abdullah.

This split was viewed as the “definitive Palestinian Settlement,” with Transjordan as ‘the Arab National Home,' parallel to the Jewish National Home on the West Bank of the Jordan River all the way to the Mediterranean Sea (from the river to the sea).

Arab Response…Rejection and Violence! In 1929, Arab mobs again attacked Jews throughout Mandate Palestine, reacting to fear mongering instigated by the Supreme Moslem Council. The wave of violence known as the 1929 Disturbances left 135 dead and included the massacre of 70 non-Zionist religious Jews who lived in Hebron, the City of the Patriarchs. The British evacuated 700 Hebron survivors to Jerusalem for their own safety. Only a handful of Jews returned to Hebron in 1931, and they were ultimately evacuated in 1936, after renewed Arab violence. That last evacuation brought an end to the Jewish presence in Hebron dating back to ancient times. Three decades later, after the 1967 Six-Day War, a Jewish community was re-established in Biblical Hebron.

1930 Passfield White Paper… The Passfield White Paper was based on the 1929 - 30 Shaw Commission of Inquiry and the 1930 Hope-Simpson Report after investigatory committees on land use sought a formula to lesson tensions between Arabs and Jews. The document called for renewed attempts to establish a joint Jewish-Arab legislative council that would automatically give the Arab majority over the Jews. British Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald however never accepted Passfield’s recommendations! The idea of a shared stewardship of One STATE never survived. Within weeks, Palestinian Arabs were once again killing Jews and also the British.

Violence: The 1936-1939 Arab Revolt, a three-year period of violence that targeted Jews and the British, was marked by murder, destruction of public infrastructure and Jewish property, and attacks on settlements. Eighty Jews lost their lives in the first stage of the revolt. Parallel to rejecting a generous pro-Arab plan, Palestinian Arabs resumed the Arab Revolt.

They stepped up attacks on Jews, and targeted moderate Arab brethren who were open to compromise. The revolt left 415 Jews dead. An estimate 25 percent of the Arabs who lost their lives in the revolt were killed by their own brethren; the Palestinian Arabs.

The moving force behind the Arab High Committee was the Mufti of Jerusalem. The supreme religious leader of the Palestinian Muslim community, Hajj Amin al-Husseini was an ardent Arab nationalist and anti-Zionist and financially backed by Nazi Germany. The Arabs denied asylum to desperate Jewish escapees from Hitler’s hell. Thereby they doomed these refugees to death. The blood of numerous Holocaust victims indelibly stains Arab handsBut that’s not all… Husseini, in the role of pan-Arab prime minister, spent the war years in Berlin, where he hobnobbed with Hitler, Himmler, Eichmann. He broadcasted Nazi propaganda, recruited Muslims to the SS and actively foiled the rescue of any Jews, even children, during the Holocaust. The Arabs of Palestine were avidly pro-Nazi, saluted each other with “Heil Hitler!” and flaunted the swastika, hoarded arms, harboured German spies and planned to heartily welcome Rommel’s invading Afrika Korps.



 

What is the Lord’s perspective of all of these events…? God is angry at the nations. Whose Land is it that the world powers are now pressuring Israel to give to the Arabs? During the current re-gathering of the Jews to Israel, even before God’s Kingdom is set up in Jerusalem, God refers to Israel as "MY people" and their Land as "MY Land" (Ezekiel 38:16; Isaiah 11:11). "They parted partitioned "MY land." 

To whom does the Land belong? The Arabs…? NO! The Land belongs to God and He gave it to the children of Israel. But the nations have the arrogance to partition God’s Land. They took 77 percent of it away from Israel, "MY people," and gave it to the Arabs — and now the United States and the nations of the world are pressuring Israel to surrender more of their God-given Land to the Arabs… But the Lord has His own land plans for Israel!

Israel’s birth was legally ordained via the UN Partition Resolution of November 29, 1947. Two states – Jewish and Arab – were to be established between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean.

Jews cheered the patchy territorial crazy-quilt they were accorded, existentially untenable though it was, and proceeded to meet all UN prerequisites for independence. The Arabs vehemently rejected the offer of a Palestinian state and, in utter defiance of the UN, set out to destroy the embryonic Jewish state rather than construct one of their own. The war that the entire Arab world launched against newborn Israel, three years post-Holocaust, was explicitly geared to complete Hitler’s unfinished mission. Not only was there no attempt to camouflage this genocide goal, but it was broadcasted boastfully for all to hear and be intimidated. Clearly Israeli independence was fraught with the most extreme and tangible danger. Hence no fan-fare could conceivably accompany the official inauguration of the state… and Israel’s Independence was proclaimed at 4:00 p.m. on the 5th of the Hebrew month of Iyar, which in 1948 fell on May 14.

There is NO Two-State Solution…! In the 1940s and ’50s, it didn’t even exist. There were no Palestinians then, although the territory had been called the British Mandate for Palestine (after the old Roman name for Israel, Palestina). Arabs had NEVER called themselves Palestinians; the few Jews who had called themselves that in the 1930s no longer did. There were only Arabs and Jews, and the openly avowed goal of all the Arab states surrounding Israel was… to drive the Jews into the sea, and divide up the land amongst themselves! Arabs inside Israel were no less committed to that same pan-Arab goal. It was only in the 1960s, after the abject failure of repeated multi-state military assaults by massed Arab armies, that Arab rulers finally accepted the fact that Israel was NOT yet weak enough for them to destroy in open warfare. Worse — from their perspective — each time Israel’s 5 million or fewer Jews defeated the Arabs who attacked her with hordes that numbered in the tens of millions, Israel gained in size and strength, and in the respect and admiration in which most of the world held her. We tend to forget now… but in earlier decades America was NOT Israel’s only ally. Europe was also pro-Israel then, and the two biggest, most rapidly developing Muslim nations in the region — Turkey and Iran — were Israeli allies.

Then as now, the Arab world was unified against Israel and against the West… but the Muslim world was not, and Europe had yet to succumb to the Islamists.

After their major military defeat in 1967, Arab rulers finally faced up to these realities, grasped their implications, and re-thought their war strategy. They realized then that, to win, they had to first attack with "Taqqiya," not tanks.

What is Taqqiya? Lies to deceive the enemy into making himself vulnerable — is an honoured Arab weapon, one that Arab states have wielded for centuries, and they are quite skilled at it. They saw that before attacking Israel again, they had to first win what we call a propaganda war, in order to discredit Israel… strip away her allies, and apply enough diplomatic pressure to wring from her a mounting series of concessions that would, in the end, render the Jewish state indefensible. For a propaganda war like that, enlisting the aid of non-Arabs was critical, and the old Arab rallying cry — "Join your Arab brothers in driving the Jews into the sea" — was not helpful for that purpose. Neither was the image of 22 Arab states — with some 300 million people, millions of square miles of sparsely populated land, and vast amounts of oil wealth — ganging up on a few million Jews, who were clinging to a resource-poor strip of seacoast about half the size of the small ‘Ancient State of Israel.’

Arab kings and dictators saw that they needed a small artificial victim group to champion, in order to compete with the all-too-real victim image of the Jews, so they invented one… picking up the name the British had used "Palestine" to conjure up a new Arab people — the Palestinians and of course, to demand a "23rd Arab state" for them. They did this suddenly and in virtual unison, catching by surprise many Arabs in Israel who had no idea they were Palestinians. And, from that day to this, Arab leaders have pushed the "Taqqiya" relentlessly in every international forum, using the huge amounts of money and leverage their oil wealth gave them to court politicians, diplomats, journalists, and educators around the globe, and to saturate media markets and schools everywhere with their great lie.

Today, it is painfully obvious to almost everyone that real peace – an end to continual hatred, incitement, rocket and terrorist attacks, and threats of war of annihilation down the road – is further away now than ever. It is equally obvious that the Palestinian State would be a terrorist state, a mortal threat to Israel! Slightly less obvious, perhaps, is the fact that a Palestinian State would be a serious threat to the USA as well, because the Palestinians are controlled – by their own choice – by the Muslim Brotherhood’s most aggressive terrorist arm, Hamas. Just as once Christian Lebanon is now controlled by the terrorist Hezbollah…

At this very moment as we write this article, the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over the control of Egypt, the Sunni population giant to the west. And, Hezbollah is controlled by Iran, the Shiite population giant to the east. These terrorist groups and their sponsoring states don’t threaten only Israel but also the Christian world as well.

A Jewish State in Biblical Israel could not be created by the United Nations or by the Jews of the West, only re-created…! Ancient walls, scrolls, monuments, and pottery accurately dated by modern science, display undeniable testimony to Biblical Israel. It was created nearly 4,000 years ago, and Jews have lived there, continuously, ever since.

It is time for the Body of Christ and for the West to convince the Muslim supremacists that theirs is a loosing strategy. We need to lift our heads with pride and encourage our Israeli brothers to do the same. We must end the mindless repetition of enemy propaganda about "occupied land," and encourage our Israeli brothers to claim the WHOLE Biblical Israel, claiming the birthplace of both Judaism and Christianity as rightfully theirs to do so, and back them up with our full might! 

If it hadn't been for Elohim's CHOSEN being scattered into the nations (Ezekiel 36:19) who were ultimately referred to as "Jews," YHWH (Yahweh) and His Son Yeshua (Jesus) would have remained the best-kept secret of tiny, little Israel, and the rest of the world would still be writhing in Paganism.

One cannot condemn those Jews who are not yet Believers in the Messiah Yeshua because God hasn't opened their spiritual eyes, yet. No tribe or race in history has remained a distinct people group outside of a national homeland for thousands of years like the Jewish people. No people on earth have ever been repatriated after dozens of generations had forgotten their distinct language. No people, that is, except for Yahweh's people.

The Land belongs to Yahweh's Chosen People. God gave the Land to Abraham and his descendants in Genesis 15:18-19. Abraham bought a large burial site at Hebron (Genesis 23:1-20); David bought the Temple Mount (1 Chronicles 21:25). And who was the Land ever sold to? NOBODY! Only in recent years has anyone even been able to TAKE it from the Jews forcefully… thanks to "the world" insisting on dividing Israel! But, unless the Muslims are willing to buy the Land… which, as it happens, is not for sale… then NOBODY has a right to it except for "the Jews!" (Gen. 15: 18; Leviticus 25: 23).

We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information.  With Shalom to you and your family always,
