There Has Never Been a Sovereign Arab State in Palestine

by Eli. E. Hertz

The artificiality of a Palestinian identity is reflected in the attitudes and actions of neighboring Arab nations who never established a Palestinian state themselves.

The rhetoric by Arab leaders on behalf of the Palestinians rings hollow. Arabs in neighboring states, who control 99.9 percent of the Middle East land, have never recognized a Palestinian entity. They have always considered Palestine and its inhabitants part of the great “Arab nation,” historically and politically as an integral part of Greater Syria – Suriyya al-Kubra – a designation that extended to both sides of the Jordan River. In the 1950s, Jordan simply annexed the West Bank since the population there was viewed as the brethren of the Jordanians.

The Arabs never established a Palestinian state when the UN in 1947 recommended to partition Palestine, and to establish “an Arab and a Jewish state” [not a Palestinian state, it should be noted]. Nor did the Arabs recognize or establish a Palestinian state during 19 years prior to the Six-Day War when Judea and Samaria known also as the West Bank were under Jordanian control and the Gaza Strip was under Egyptian control; nor did the Palestinian Arabs themselves clamor for autonomy or independence during those years under Jordanian and Egyptian rule.

And as for Jerusalem: Only twice in the city’s history has it served as a national capital. First as the capital of the two Jewish Commonwealths during the First And Second Temple periods, as described in the Bible, reinforced by archaeological evidence and numerous ancient documents. And again in modern times as the capital of the State of Israel. It has never served as an Arab capital for the simple reason that there has never been a Palestinian Arab state.

According to investigative journalist Joan Peters, who spent seven years researching the origins of the Arab-Jewish conflict over Palestine (From Time Immemorial, 2001), the one identity that was never considered by local inhabitants prior to the 1967 war was “Arab Palestinian.”

The term "Palestinian Arab People" was created by the dezinformatsia in Moscow in 1964 when they were in the business of creating fake "liberation" organizations. They created several more.. According to Major General Ion Mihai Pacepa, the first charter of the PLO was drafted in Moscow. You will see it appear three times in the preamble of the charter. Its existence, and quest for political self determination was attested to by 422 members of the Palestinian National Council, created contemporaneously. Each member was handpicked by the KGB. It served a useful purpose. It served the purpose of disguising what had previously been murder, motivated by religious obligation, to the alleged motivation of "liberation" of fake "Palestinians" who wanted self rule. This was a very successful dissimulation operation. It would do wonders to change the perception of the West. See: Brand,
