"It doesn't have to mean anything. But, the Israeli government, along with Jews around the world will allow it to mean something."It is as simple as that.
People around the world have bought into the Palestinian lie. What is there for us to do about it? We have given that lie power, by being wishy-washy about it what it really is, a big, fat lie.
It is a lie that the Arabs have any connection to the Land of Israel at all. One only has to read Tana"kh (The Bible), to know that the Yishma'elim (Arabs) entered Israel only when the Jewish Kingdoms were weak. They murdered, raped, and pillaged, then left when they were done. Sound familiar? It should. Only the swords have long since been replaced by guns, courtesy of the Israeli and U. S. governments, not to mention the sanctioned smuggling.
Arafat once tried calling his group of Yishma'elim descendants of the Jebusites, and thus the rightful owners of Jerusalem.
Many of you won't even remember this silly ploy. That is how effective it was, not effective at all. So, they simply ditched this lie, hoped that everyone would forget about it, and moved onto the next lie.
These Arabs, albeit pawns of their big brothers in the surrounding Yishma'eli countries, cannot be Palestinians, because there is no Palestine. Palestine was what the Romans insisted on calling all of Israel. Even though Philistia was actually localized to the area of Gaza and surrounds. The Roman goal was the same as many modern day countries: Diminish the Jews' integral connection to the Land of Israel. Nablus, for example, is simply a bastardization of the Roman Neopolis. (Arabs have difficulties in pronouncing the the "p" sound.)
Nablus was never an ancient Palestinian city. Although is was most certainly an ancient city. It was, and is, called Shchem, a portion of which was actually purchased with money by our ancestor Ya'aqov (Jacob - Gen. 33:18-19).
Thus I prefer to call these Yishma'elim, "Pseudostinians," a term I got from Batya at Shiloh Musings. See her take on this UN vote, Standing Ovation For The Displacement/Destruction/Replacement Of Israel.
And, of course, as Tomer Devorah suggests, it was no accident that this vote took place on November 29, which was the same date in 1947 the UN voted to approve its partition plan for the area, making the way for Israeli statehood.
Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon mistakenly calls for a One-State Solution.
A "Palestinian" Quiz has been making its rounds on the Internet lately. It is captured here by Ya'akov Kirschen in his Dry Bones comic strip. It validates the use of the term "Pseudostinian."
But, why not let an Arab have the last word? Hey, there's a first time for everything, right? This isn't just any Arab, but a former commander of the Pseudostinian Liberation Organization [PLO].
