I was kind of shocked that it was so well received by many people who had been down this road before. I suggest to you that what Crown Prince Abdullah talked about a few days ago was not new at all. He talked about the fact that under the Abdullah plan, Arabs would normalize relations with Israel in exchange for the Jewish state surrendering the territory it received after the Six Day War, as if that were something new I will discuss seven reasons why Israel is entitled to the land they have and that it should not be a part of the peace process.
If this is something that Israel wants to do, it is their business to do it. But anyone who has tried to put the pressure on Israel to do this is wrong. We are going to be hit by skeptics who Why do you think palestinians should going to say we will be attacked because of our support for Israel, and if we get out of the Middle East -- that is us -- all the problems will go away.
That is just not true. If we withdraw, all of these problems will again come to our door. I have some observations to make about that.
But I would like to reemphasize once again the seven reasons that Israel has the right to their land. All the archeological evidence supports it. Every time there is a dig in Israel, it does nothing but support the fact that Israelis have had a presence there for 3, years.
The coins, the cities, the pottery, the culture -- there are other people, groups that are there, but there is no mistaking the fact that Israelis have been present in that land for 3, years.
It predates any claims that other peoples in the region may have. The ancient Philistines are extinct. Many other ancient peoples are extinct. They do not have the unbroken line to this date that the Israelis have. Even the Egyptians of today are not racial Egyptians of 2, 3, years ago.
They are primarily an Arab people. The land is called Egypt, but they are not the same racial and ethnic stock as the old Egyptians of the ancient world. The Israelis are in fact descended from the original Israelites. History supports it totally and completely.
We know there has been an Israel up until the time of the Roman Empire. The Romans conquered the land. Israel had no homeland, although Jews were allowed to live there. They were driven from the land in two dispersions: One in 70 A.
But there was always a Jewish presence in the land. The Turks, who took over about years ago and ruled the land up until about World War One, had control.
Then the land was conquered by the British. The British knew they had to do something to punish Turkey, and also to break up that empire that was going to be a part of the whole effort of Germany in World War One. So the British sent troops against the Turks in the Holy Land. One of the generals who was leading the British armies was a man named Allenby.
Allenby was a Bible-believing Christian. He carried a Bible with him everywhere he went and he knew the significance of Jerusalem. The night before the attack against Jerusalem to drive out the Turks, Allenby prayed that God would allow him to capture the city without doing damage to the holy places.
That day, Allenby sent World War One biplanes over the city of Jerusalem to do a reconnaissance mission. You have to understand that the Turks had at that time never seen an airplane. So there they were, flying around.
They looked in the sky and saw these fascinating inventions and did not know what they were, and they were terrified by them.
They dared not fight against a prophet from God, so Allenby captured Jerusalem without firing a single shot. Then they were told they were going to be opposed by a man named Allenby the next day, which means, in their language, "man sent from God" or "prophet from God.
The British government was grateful to Jewish people around the world, particularly to one Jewish chemist who helped them manufacture niter.The first reason is that Israel has the right to the land because of all of the archeological evidence.
All the archeological evidence supports it. Every time there is a dig in Israel, it does nothing but support the fact that Israelis have had a presence there for 3, years.
This is why whenever you hear about the Arab/Israeli conflict, you hear: territory, territory, territory. There are other aspects to the conflict, but territory is highly important” (rutadeltambor.com). Therefore, many Palestinian Muslims believe they also have a religious claim to the land of Palestine.
The following are 10 reasons why a Palestinian state is a really, really bad idea. #1 The “Palestinian territories” are currently ruled by two separate governments.
One of them is a terrorist organization. Why should Israelis support a Palestinian state israelis should support a palestinian state because it the right thing to do, if that is what palestinians aspire to. questions of borders & security are relevant, but not mutually exclusive to the one you asked.
The Palestinians and by extension most Arabs are no longer claiming that Israel should not exist, in fact most Palestinians and Arabs are not against the existence of Israel and this is . Why should Palestinians have the Land of Israel?
Why do Palestinians think they should have the land of Palestine? Because their descendants have lived in the area for years.
