Ant-Israel Aksa Martyrs Brigades (Fatah) leaflet - distributed today in Gaza: "We affirm our support and backing for the positions of the Iranian president toward the Zionist state which, by God's will, will cease to exist. Recognizing Israel's right to exist means underestimating the Palestinian people, who are making daily sacrifices to liberate Palestine and Jerusalem." gamla.org.il Volume 6 Issue 50. Nov 7, 2005
Non-people "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism.
"For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan." (PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, March 31, 1977, interview with the Dutch newspaper Trau.)
Arab activist Musa Alami is quoted by Joan Peters [From Time Immemorial, p. 13] as writing in October 1949, "The people are in great need of a 'myth' to fill their consciousness and imagination," and adding that indoctrinating this nationalistic myth would create "identity" and "self-respect."
Almost 30 years later, PLO Military Department head Zuheir Muhsin said, "Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel."
Similarly, Yasser Arafat's Fatah terrorist group issued a statement on Dec. 31, 2001, announcing its belief that "a legitimate Palestinian entity forms the most important weapon that Arabs have against Israel, the outpost of the imperialist powers." Arutz Sheva News Service. Feb. 29, 2004
When I say: "non-existent", of course, the people exist, but there was never an Arab Palestinian entity. The Arabs entered British Mandate Palestine freely (without permits needed by Jews) from all the surrounding Arab countries as the Jews returned to make the desert bloom, creating jobs and good health conditions. The only "Palestinians" were the Jews under the British Mandate from 1917 to 1948 when Israel because a State 54 years ago today.

"You are the sons of Balaam, the sons of 'bela' (destruction and deceit), the sons of 'bli-am' (no people), the sons of 'bliyaal' (wickedness, worthlessness), and the sons of 'bli eretz' (no land). You are experts of impurity, cursedness, and evil... Min. Effie Eitam at the funeral of victims of a Palestinian terrorist attack. Arutz-7 News Brief: Friday, June 21, 2002
If the people you mistakenly call "Palestinians" are anything but generic Arabs collected from all over -- or thrown out of -- the Arab world, if they really have a genuine ethnic identity that gives them right for self-determination, why did they never try to become independent until Arabs suffered their devastating defeat in the Six Day War?

In March 1977, Zahir Muhsein, an executive member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), said in an interview to the Dutch newspaper Trouw: "The 'Palestinian people' does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel."
The Arabs who now claim to be natives of the Holy Land have migrated to Palestine after 1918, from neighboring Arab countries, predominantly from areas now known as Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq. None of these countries existed as nations prior to 1913. They were nothing but a disorganized collection of tribes, constantly terrorizing each other, trying to seize land from their neighbors. Unfortunately, those Arab immigrants, imported into the Holy Land their age-old culture of terrorizing neighbors to seize land. Many of them were social outcasts and criminals who could not find jobs in their own countries so they searched for their luck elsewhere. Some of them were accepted by the British regime as a source of cheap labor and were allowed to settle on unoccupied Jewish land in Palestine. Even Yassir Arafat, the leader of the PLO, is not a native of the Holy Land. He was born in 1929 in Cairo, Egypt. He served in the Egyptian army, studied in the University of Cairo, and lived in Cairo until 1956. He then moved to Saudi-Arabia and founded the Al-Fatah terror organization, the precursor to the PLO, in Kuwait in 1958, together with his Saudi-Arabian friends.http://www.think-israel.org/mandelbaum.html
The governor of the Syrian district of Hauran, Tewfik Bey El Hurani, admitted in 1934 that in a single period of only a few months over 30,000 Syrians from Hauran had moved to Palestine. Even British Prime Minister Winston Churchill noted the Arab influx. Churchill, a veteran of the early years of the British mandate in the Holy Land, noted in 1939 that "far from being persecuted, the Arabs have crowded into the country and multiplied." http://www.think-israel.org/mandelbaum.html
Palestinian nation is a media/leftist Myth

Yasser Arafat's disappearance from the scene. Like the Thane of Cawdor in Shakespeare's Macbeth, "Nothing in his life became him like the leaving it." Arafat never grew beyond the man who appeared at the United Nations decades ago with both an olive branch and a gun.

Father of terror U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Florida), Chairperson of the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and Central Asia, told Foxnews today that Yasser Arafat is in total charge of the terrorist infrastructure in the Palestinian Authority:
"If he wanted to, he could dismantle the entire terrorist infrastructure today or this very hour. He has already fired one prime minister, and is about to fire another, and is in charge of everything that goes on there. So for him to say that he condemns today's attack is just ridiculous."

Violence (Option for Arabs) Leading Fatah officials believe that despite, or because of, Ariel Sharon's plan to quit Gaza, the terrorist war on Israel - unifying Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah - must continue. In answer to Al-Jazeera's question whether Sharon's declaration can be seen as a "victory for the intifada," Abu Rudeina replied: "The intifada is winning, either with these declarations or without them. The intifada is the only way that might lead to peace." Arutz Sheva News Service <http://www.israelnationalnews.com/> Feb. 4, 2004

Death cult Suicide bombings:- Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa) agrees. "If we don't stop the suicide bombings in Israel, they may become an international terrorist way of life. They may become a plague. And they could happen anywhere if they gain currency and if they are permitted to go unchecked." Specter, a strong supporter of Israel, says that explains why he understands Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's policies. "When Sharon moves in - in self defense - to rout out these terrorists and to stop the suicide bombers, who can say he's wrong?" (by Wolf Blitzer, CNN Wolf Blitzer Reports)
Understanding the Death Worship of the Palestinian Suicide Bomber -- It's Aspiration, not Desperation!
by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook http://www.pmw.org.il/
"I always wanted to be the first woman who sacrifices her life for Allah. My joy will be complete when my body parts fly in all directions."
These are the words of female suicide terrorist Reem Reyashi, videotaped just before she killed four
Israelis and herself two weeks ago in Gaza. What is surprising about this horrific statement is that she put a positive value on her dismemberment and death, distinct from her goal to kill others. She was driven by her aspiration to achieve what the Palestinians call "shahada," death for Allah. She had two distinct goals: To kill and to be killed. These independent objectives, both positive in her mind, were goals greater than her obligations and emotional ties to her two children. This aspiration to die, which contradicts the basic human instinct for survival, is at the core of the suicide terrorism fervor. Only when this death worship component is recognized as a basic tenet of Palestinian belief will it be possible to understand the challenges Israel and the world face from suicide terror.
"Consider this excerpt from a Palestinian TV talk show with two 11-year-old girls as an illustration of what really drives the Palestinian death cult. 'What is better,' the hosts ask, 'peace and full rights for the Palestinian people or shahada (death for Allah).' 'Shahada,' is the unequivocal answer of one girl. The other explains: 'We don't want this world, we want the Afterlife.'" --"Gaza First," Review & Outlook, Wall St. Journal, February 6, 2004
