Israel, the Palestinians and the Arab/Muslim Agenda

"The recurrent harassment and restrictions imposed on Palestinian refugees in recent years have forced most of them to resort again to other countries such as Canada, Chile, Brazil and other European countries. Due to these violations, only about 7,000 out of 40,000 Palestinian refugees are now residing in Iraq. It is a shame to which an end should be put."
"Instead of protecting the Palestinian refugees from daily violations and improving their living and humanitarian conditions, the Iraqi government is making decisions that will have a catastrophic impact on the lives of these refugees."

A new Iraqi law, recently ratified by Iraq's President Fuad Masum, effectively abolishes the rights of Palestinians living there (free education, healthcare, travel documents, work in state institutions), changing the status of Palestinians from nationals to foreigners.

Israel, founded as a Jewish State, as a return to its Zionist-Judean homeland of antiquity so that those in the great historical diaspora would have a renascent nation of their own to turn to as a remedy for the never-ending scourge of anti-Semitism and the lethal violence it unleashes, resulted with international approval as a backlash to the Holocaust, when nations of the world recognized their disinterested complicity in the horrendous extermination plan of Nazi Germany's Final Solution.

That Jewish state is forever assailed by its neighbours and by the greater Islamic ummah as a foreign interloper in Muslim territory. Arabs originally from Egypt, Syria and Jordan who settled in the area known as Palestine and where the original Palestinians were known as the Jewish community which had remained there for thousands of years, just as other Jews had migrated to the Arab countries of the Middle East when Roman might destroyed the Second Temple of Solomon and exiled the Jewish population, appropriated the term 'Palestinian' to distinguish themselves as the original inhabitants.

Now, these Palestinian Arabs feel justified in excoriating Israel as an apartheid state, when even the most unobservant of onlookers could ascertain if the least bit inclined to do so, that Israel has absorbed millions of Arab Muslims and Christians, Druze and Kurds and those Christians of European descent, along with refugee Africans, diluting its Jewish demographic in a democratic, humanitarian gesture that recognizes equality and citizenship for all concerned.

The surrounding Muslim population along with their international leaders elsewhere in the world, saw fit to exile Arab Jews, and despite evidence to the contrary, dispute Israel's legitimacy of existence, and in their sequence of military attacks planned to obliterate Israel from the map of the Middle East. The Palestinian Authority has in fact, obliterated the presence of Israel from all the maps it produces, claiming the entire territory, 'from the river (Jordan) to the sea (Mediterranean)' as a Palestinian legacy.

Yet, despite all the hostility directed toward Israel in slander and deadly violence, and the encouragement of Arab countries in the Middle East toward Palestinian entitlements, the Palestinians who fled the area now held by Israel, to find temporary haven that became permanent in Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Iraq and elsewhere, are considered by those countries to be unwelcome guests. Only in Jordan alone are Palestinians given citizenship and they comprise half to two-thirds of the Jordanian population.

In Lebanon, the Palestinians have always been despised and viewed as inferior, as trouble-makers. In Syria, the Palestinians have been besieged and they have been deprived of food, water, medicines by the Syrian regime. In Iraq, Law No.76 of 2017 published in the Iraqi Official Gazette No.4466, ratified by Iraqi President Fuad Masum, removes the right to free education, healthcare and travel documents, denying Palestinians employment in state institutions.
"Palestinians can even apply for citizenship in non-Arab countries and receive it. But not in countries such as Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. It is easier for a Palestinian to obtain Canadian or US citizenship than to get one from most of the Arab countries."
Khaled Abu Toameh, journalist, Jerusalem

And when they find solace and haven and reception and equality in countries of the West, they settle in, make themselves comfortable, take advantage of all the entitlements of citizenship and social services denied them in the Arab countries of the Middle East. Palestinians do not denounce the unequal treatment they receive at the hands of their Arab brethren. What they do is export the baggage to accompany them in their emigration from the Middle East, and mount public relations campaigns to impugn and dispute Israel's legitimacy.

From teaching their children to detest Jews and to recognize their duty as Palestinians to 'resist' the 'occupation', exposing children to the viral blooms of hatred and violence, inspiring a martyrdom obligation in the young, to breeding terrorist groups like Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad to practise warfare against the Jewish state, in the hope that jihad-driven militias will succeed where the organized military coalitions of the past failed to, the Arab world has engineered the world's longest-lasting and most intractable conflict of the present age.

They bring with them to the West from their origins in the Middle East, the bacterial infection of Arab anti-Semitism. Portraying themselves as helpless, hapless underdogs despite the violence that the Palestine Liberation Organization and its sister groups with their terrorist agendas wrote into history; the highjacking of planes and ships, the bombing of Jewish synagogues and community centres abroad, and the intifadas that brought suicide bombers into Israel.

What the international community heard and saw was not the viciousness of the Palestinian campaign to delegitimize Israel, but a dominant nation forced to defend itself from implacable enemies which they preferred to characterize as an 'occupying force', adopting the terminology of the Arab campaign. The 'defenceless', 'victimized' Palestinians became the darling of the socialist democrats in their progressive mood of social justice.

Unquestioning and ignorant of both history and reality on the ground, the underlying social venom of anti-Semitism reawakened, the actions and influence of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in the United Nations has entirely perverted the meaning of human rights, sovereignty, history and truth. That the Palestinians have been used by the Arab League and the OIC in their campaign to slander and delegitimize Israel, while failing to give their own recognition and aid to the 'Palestinian refugees' speaks volumes about the true agendas of both.
