PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, made remarks including these points in ’77:

  • The “Palestinian people” does not exist.
  • The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against Israel.
  • In reality there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.
  • Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab interests demand the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.
  • The moment we get all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

–from interview of Muhsein by Trouw newspaper, published 3/31/77 in Holland.

Yasser Arafat and other Palistinian Liberation Organization heads made similar statements.

Israel is the size of New Jersey. Many ethnicities reside in Israel including, of course, Arabs.

Compare the size of Israel to the size of the surrounding hostile lands now held by Arabs where Jews have been driven out, persecuted, murdered:




Get the picture?

    Six hundred words, three hydrology maps, one table, and one nasty conclusion: you can’t put 1.6 million people on 11,000 acres of ground with an aquifer that is taking on 12,000 acre feet of seawater annually and produce a story with a happy ending.
