Historical revisionism has been rampant on the part of Rashida Tlaib, the Palestinian-American representative who made controversial remarks about how “welcoming” Arabs were when Jews started settling in the Holy Land. Marina Medvin at Townhall explains:
The history behind the rebirth of Israel is so deeply intertwined with Palestinian propaganda that it is difficult for most Americans to answer a simple question: how did Jews come to possess the land now known as Israel? Palestinian-first Rashida Tlaib has elucidated this propaganda plague through her recently publicized statements of Jew-hatred, letting us know how calm and cozy she feels when she thinks about the Holocaust extermination of 6 million Jews. Leftists came to her defense, justifying her Jew-hatred as entitlement because her poor Palestinian predecessors allegedly helped the post-Holocaust Jews take their land, but now find themselves victims of these Jews. Rashida plainly lied and regurgitated Palestinian propaganda — she retold revisionist history.
Jews didn’t “take” land.
Jews Purchased The Land Before The Holocaust
In the 1800s, Jewish zionists, which are diaspora Jews who wanted to return to their biblical homeland, started buying land in the region of Palestine, which belonged to the Ottoman Empire (the Turks). The Empire made these land purchases very difficult, discriminatorily restricting Jews’ ability to purchase land in the region as much as they could through legislation. By the 1900s, land purchase became easier and Zionists accelerated their land purchases of the Turk-controlled land.
Jewish settlement in the Holy Land predates the Holocaust, and the land was acquired lawfully from the owners, whether under Ottoman or British rule. To imply that Palestinian Arabs greeted Jews with open arms, instead of attempting to push Jews into the sea in the 1948 war, is a gross historical distortion.
The problem is the jews that have stolen Palestine are not the same jews from the bible, the people who stole Palestine were atheist jews. They have not only stolen another people’s country they have destroyed the Holyland with their strip clubs and manufacture of ecstasy. The land is infested with evil jews who murder Palestinians on a daily basis and spit on Christians who come to visit . And if it weren’t for the billions of dollars israHELL gets from the US this shitty little country would implode.
you started a war that you dumb ass lost there i never has been a palastine
the Jews can bild any where they like
Everybody is talking about the Palestinian Refugees (used as political ‘victims’ for decades), but nobody is acknowledging the 600,000 Jews who had to leave the Arab countries once the State of Israel was formed.
After WWII Finland lost a significant portion of the land to Russia, and had to migrate 400,000 Finns (10% of the population) to the Finland proper – if there is a will there is a solution.
“Tlaib, the Palestinian-American representative”
There is no Palestine nation and never has been one. She is not American because she hates America and wants it conquered and destroyed. She only represents politically those who advocate the terrorist military objectives of the kuran.
