The TRUTH About the Middle East

Story here.

The truth is that "Palestine" is no more real than Never-Never Land. The first time the name was used was in A.D. 70 when the Romans committed genocide against the Jews, smashed the Temple and declared the land of Israel would be no more. From then on, the Romans promised, it would be known as "Palestine." The name was derived from the Philistines, a Goliathian people conquered by the Jews centuries earlier. It was a way for the Romans to add insult to injury. They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, but that had even less staying power.

"Palestine" has never existed – before or since – as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland.

There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.

But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today. Greed. Pride. Envy. Covetousness. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.

Still cutting and pasting from WND, my friend?

So what do you make of Trump's claim that Corsi is lying about his views on The Birth Certificate? Or Corsi's new conspiracy theory - that Trump was conspiring with Obama ALL ALONG?

That's the problem with conspiracy theorists, CS - there's always ANOTHER conspiracy. Mind your sanity.

Don't you have anything more important to do, Balbs?

Oh, wait. I just realized that it's important that you add such commentary to try, a la Machiavelli, Goebbels, Socrates, Alinsky and Chomsky, to cultivate doubt in the minds of folks who might otherwise see the truth.

I noticed that you didn't dispute anything Mr. Farrah said. Interesting. You just pooped upon him and WND. Come on. You sound like a grumpy, opinionated old man, is all. Everyone's got one. Some like to make lots of smelly noise with theirs.

Oh, dear. Are you sliding back into "poopy" and fart jokes again? I hope not.

You (understandably) ducked the question. Let me help you focus.

Trump says Corsi and Farrah are lying.

You praised Trump lavishly, and of course, you rely almost exclusively on WND for your "ideas".

So - which of your idols do you think IS lying? Gotta be one of them. Which?
