A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Suicide by Inches

Posted by Godefroi on January 14, 2008

I believe it was Karl Jung who coined this theory – that the typical suicide is not one final desperate act, but a series of small ones that inevitably lead to self-destruction.  I think he’d find a good example in Ehud Olmert.

Report: Olmert Agrees to Allow in 50,000 Arab ‘Refugees’

by Hillel Fendel (Israel National News)


Channel Ten reported Thursday night that in a private meeting between Olmert and Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen, the two agreed that in the final-status agreement, Israel would withdraw from 92% of Judea and Samaria, including all the non-Jewish neighborhoods in eastern Jerusalem.  It was also agreed that 50,000 “refugees from 1948” would enter and live in the State of Israel

That’s a lot of potential muhahideen, eh?  And continuing to harp, there is Hamas; their “Prime Minister” in Gaza reiterating the demand:

“A Palestinian state in the pre-1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital, the destruction of all the settlements, the release of all the Palestinian prisoners, the ‘right of return’ of all the Palestinian refugees, and continued adherence to the strategy of not giving up on even one inch of all of Palestine.”

In other words, give us our state in Gaza and Judea/Samaria, so we can continue in our attempts to utterly destroy Israel. 

Hamas:  Let me in, and I’ll burn your house down!

Olmert: Uh..don’t you mean “OR you’ll burn our house down?”. 

Hamas: No, I mean AND!

Olmert: Oh…uh…OK.

 On a happier note, also included in the article is a small history lesson for those willing to not be blind. 

Israel liberated Judea and Samaria during the Six Day War in 1967, capturing it, essentially, from no one. No country in the world, other than Great Britain and Pakistan, recognized Jordan’s control over Judea and Samaria between 1948 and 1967.

Oft-forgotten is the fact that the refugee problem was not caused by Israel, but by the Arab states.  “The Arab States encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies,” according to the Jordanian newspaper Filastin (February 19, 1949). 

Joan Peters, in her classic work “From Time Immemorial,” quotes (on page 13) an Arab-sponsored Institute for Palestine Studies finding that “the majority” of the Arab refugees in 1948 were not expelled, and that 68% left without seeing an Israeli soldier.

On April 27, 1950, the Arab National Committee of Haifa informed the Arab States: “The removal of the Arab inhabitants… was voluntary and was carried out at our request… The Arab delegation proudly asked for the evacuation of the Arabs and their removal to the neighboring Arab countries.”

Zuheir Muhsein, the late Military Department head of the PLO and member of its Executive Council, told the Dutch daily Trouw, March 1977, “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity… Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people… to oppose Zionism.”
