As Secretary of Palestine during the British Mandate back in 1921, Winston Churchill spent a great deal of time with the Jews and the Arabs. As Churchill's official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert, relates, the contrast between the extraordinarily negative points of view put forth by the Palestinian Arabs and the equally positive ones put forth by the Jews struck him enormously. Churchill didn't like negativism and he couldn't comprehend why the Palestinian Arabs were being so negative. It's quite curious. If you have a look at what the Palestinian Arabs told him, you'll find that three or four are actually in the Hamas Charter today, such as the world Jewish conspiracy and so on and so forth. That said, the Palestinian Arabs just made a bad impression on him and subsequently, he became very negative toward them; in modern terms, almost racist. When Churchill spoke to the Palestinian Arabs, he actually said to them, 'You've got to help the Zionists. They're people of quality and inasmuch as they'll succeed, you'll succeed. Without them you won't succeed.' This was back in 1921. In 2011, the Pallies remain unable to form a viable society with Hamas and Fatah factions murdering each other every day. Fratricide is never a good basis for forming a nation. At the same time, the Israelis have built one of the most advanced, successful and prosperous societies in the world by all accounts Which begs the question, given Pallies' animosity toward the Jews, based on antiSemitic Islamic doctrine, will Churchill be proven correct that Pallies will never be successful on their own?
