According to Palestinian revisionism, the Palestinians lived from time immemorial in historic Palestine, a veritable paradise of flourishing orchards and fertile vineyards, teeming with happy peasants. Then, the evil Zionists came and, with the support of the British, stole the Palestinians’ land, exiled their people, and initiated a reign of
terror and ethnic cleansing that has not abated until this very day.
Goebbels died 60 years ago, but his core propaganda strategy lives on in the Great Arab Lie that there exists a Palestinian people who have suffered great injustices at the hands of Israel, the UK, and the USA. Arab leaders know that if they just keep repeating the same lie often enough, eventually people will believe it -- and the greater the lie, the more readily will people believe it.
Since the Six-Day War, the Arab world’s most powerful leaders -- in Egypt, Libya, Arabia, Syria, and Iraq prior to Saddam’s demise -- have waged a war of words against Israel. Having failed to defeat Israel by means of naked military aggression, these leaders and their advisors decided, sometime between the end of the war and the Khartoum Conference of August-September 1967, to bring about the destruction of Israel by means of a relentless terror war.
To justify to the world their ruthless mass murder of Israeli civilians and their undying hatred of the West, these leaders needed to invent a bizarre and apposite reality. Slowly but surely, the reality of the “little David” Israel assailed by the “giant Goliath” of the entire Arab world has been reversed. Now the “Goliath” Israel is depicted as the racist, apartheid, war-mongering, oppressive, illegal occupier Jewish State, regional superpower, hell-bent on the destruction, indeed, the genocide of the poor, defenseless Palestinian people -- the Middle East’s new “David.” This grotesque fiction could be foisted upon the world only if there were indeed a “little David” for Goliath Israel to oppress; only if Israel’s combatant in the conflict were not the entire Arab world, but rather some poor, enfeebled people who could mount no real defense against the Jewish superpower, but nonetheless had a stronger claim to the land of Israel than Israel itself.
Thus the PLO, under the tutelage of the KGB, invented “The Palestinian People.”
Read it all. Yes, it's a bit long, but it's footnoted, and you can print out the "printable article" version if you prefer to read it later. And it's worth it, particularly if you are unsure whether you know the truth and, having a genuinely open mind, wish to learn more. Don't let yourself be brainwashed by the propaganda of the Islamofascistic terrorists and the KGB which is actually being perpetuated by the mainstream media and likely even your teachers, friends and family members who've fallen victim to this propaganda.
