(of course newcomers came, but the majority) When they tried to use DNA tests to prove we don't belong, it backfired massively. It's why you never hear them trying it anymore.
Anonymous said: Gaza was donated to the Palestinians in 2005, families and families of Jewish Israelis were moved out and relocated for palestinians. Gaza is larger than the vegas strip, manhattan, the City of London borough and other highly successful and economicly developed areas. Instead on using hard work and discipline to build something similar for the Arabs of the middle east, Hamas, an internationally recognised and self admitted terrorist organisation, used the Gaza strip to hide missiles under hotels
The amount of mental gymnastics and cognitive dissonance needed to make this post happen is actually quite amazing. There are people that actually believe this.
You do realize that the Gaza strip..is..Palestinian land…right? You do realize it wasn’t “donated”, it’s not a gift, it’s always been ours? You do realize that those settlers, SETTLERS, were there on Palestinian land against international law?
I can’t even be angry at this post. I am honestly baffled how a victim complex can develop to this point. You’re acting as if the settlers are the original inhabitants and the Palestinians are the foreign immigrants to the land that displaced them. Do you realize that for those settlers to have their settlements in the Gaza strip in the first place..they kinda..had to remove the Palestinians there, right?
Do you realize that Gaza still fits international law’s definition of a military occupation? Israelis didn’t leave Gaza alone, all control of Gaza is still maintained by the Israeli army. Borders, airspace, supplies, everything.
Then, you turn around and compare an occupied strip of land, that will not be fit for human life by 2020, a strip with the worlds highest population density, with two of the wealthiest most powerful nations in the world?
I’m sure you know that most Gazans are refugees in origin? They didn’t “donate” their lands to the Israelis, though. But hey, since when did that stop colonial invaders.
I’ve always known pro Israelis are deluded and ahistorical, but this post takes the cake. There is some seriously next level Orwellian propaganda at work here.
Gaza was “donated” to Palestinians, Palestinians displaced Israelis, Israel is the eternal victim, war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.
Gaza is, in fact, the ancient land of the Philistines, for whom Palestine is named. (The Hebrew term for them is “Pelestim”.) The modern inhabitants are Arabs, but are known specifically as Palestinians because they’ve been in Palestine/Israel/The Levant for so long.
Come to think of it…it’s strange how closely the current situation in the Levant resembles the situation 2800 years ago. You have a bunch of jewish people in Israel, a bunch of Palestinians in a narrow coastal strip, and a bunch of Palestinians across the Jordan river. Then and now, the people of the coastal strip are hated by the Israelis, and are in constant war with them. Across the Jordan river, the semitic peoples are subjugated by the strong military rule of Israel.
Although this time it’s less “subjugated” and more “crushed under heel.”
