Liars must be fast dancers in order not to get caught. They either must have an excellent memory, or know that their trail has been erased or feel certain their audience will accept the lie knowing that it’s a lie. The PLO and the Palestinian people may be one of the greatest fabrications of our time. To construct a fabricated background, you must do it in small increments, piece by piece. It’s a shaky house of cards but only if its audience cares to shake the table. So, let’s look at the separate pieces.
Today an icon, carefully constructed for credibility, has fallen. Professor Edward W. Said, the eloquent voice of Palestinian causes has turned out to be a self-promoted fabrication. Often and loudly, he has impressed the world of Liberals with his eloquent description of his early life as a professional Palestinian refugee, turned out of his house by invading Israelis. Here, as is popular among the Palestinians, he remembers his alleged ‘roots’, his home, the trees around him and his youthful years - only to become a sympathetic refugee - now a voice for the Palestinians.
Careful research by Justus Reid Weiner (1) has disclosed that Said did not live in
Said’s invented ‘life story’ infused his advocacy with moral authority. Weiner’s devastating article -- "‘My Beautiful Old House’ and Other Fabrications by Edward Said" -- drives a stake through Said’s integrity. If he were a reporter, he’d be fired. But, even though he has been exposed as a rank liar, he will not be fired from
Of course, in his propagandizing for the Arabs, Said rarely mentioned the reality of seven well-armed Arab armies (Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Saudi Arabia) pledged to attack the Jews and wipe out every man, woman and child. I will not repeat the methodical research that uncovered the Said Sham. You can find it in August 26th 1999 WALL
Let us consider Yassir Arafat, so carefully cleaned up by the West, particularly by the
Like Said, Arafat has played his "Palestinian" lie to the hilt.
However, before we go further, we must admit there are certain mitigating circumstances. The culture in the

Already in 1992, according to British Intelligence, even as Arafat claimed poverty, he had a personal fortune of $8-10 Billion dollars with an annual income of $1,500,000. (3) Yet, none of this money which was obtained from Arab nations (much by blackmail) was to be shared with the Palestinian people. Here again, the fiction of poverty was peddled to the Liberals of the world. Arafat, playing the poor rag-head, begging for alms to help his people, never intended to share his wealth or the money from the donor countries with his own people. His funds did build a terror organization which one day will be the key to disrupt
Perhaps the best and most believed fabrication are the claims that the Palestinians lived for hundreds and even thousands of years in the land the Romans named "Palestina" to conceal the Jew in Judea and the Israel in Eretz Yisrael. The well-researched and referenced book, "From Time Immemorial" by Joan Peters tells the true story of Arab immigration into Eretz Yisrael. (4) It tracks the opportunistic immigration of Arabs from
It is, however, understandable that this mix of people would want the deep and recorded history similar to
There are big lies; there are little lies, but these Arab lies all add up to a very, very, very big lie.
The world media collaborates in these fabrications. Recently, when an Arab apartment building in the Palestinian Authority collapsed, trapping people inside, the Israelis instantly sent an extraction crew who masterminded the rescue, working with the Palestinians. However, when Israeli ambulances tried to come in to assist, they were turned away. Photos in the Arab and world press did not show the Israelis working to save Palestinians. Same thing during the Israelis very heroic efforts, arriving first, to assist those stricken in
When agreements are made with the Arabs, signed and then abrogated, stories are floated as to why the agreements were not broken but that it was the other side who broke the agreements. Carl Jung, the renowned psychoanalyst, identified this syndrome where the aggressor blames the victim for what he intends to do, justifying the criminal’s planned aggression.
When hundreds of millions of dollars of American and European donor monies disappeared into the pockets of Arafat and his cronies, they simply stated that it wasn’t true, even ignoring the protests of their own Palestinian Committees. The Donors’ countries at first were frustrated but, finally accepted the idea that their money would simply not make it into building of the Palestinian infrastructure. The money was now to be considered ‘baksheesh’, a bribe to buy the good will of surrounding Arab countries, not to mention the trouble making capabilities of the PLO and its affiliates.
A wanna-be nation conceived in lies and nurtured in lies cannot but help to conduct all their business with the attitude that lying is OK because it gets them what they want without payment. With Billions of dollars flowing in without question or accountability, merely by pledging anything the donor wants to hear, why not continue the same modus operandi on all matters?
So, when Arafat subjugates his people as is the way with this friend of Saddam and Assad of Syria, then that will always be the way of the neo-State of
