    The Palestinian tragedy mustn't be used to spark a Jewish one - Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

    The Palestinian tragedy mustn't be used to spark a Jewish one

    When the Palestinians finally recognize the grand Jewish narrative and the grand Jewish catastrophe, we too can recognize their narrative and their catastrophe.

    Opinion

    Not a day goes by when I don't think about their tragedy. How can I not? When I walk around the beautiful Jerusalem neighborhood I've lived in half my life, their houses gaze at me. When I stroll through Jaffa's alleyways, their absence strikes me. When I hike in the Judean Hills, the ruins of their villages won't let go of me. The vanishing fig trees, the wilting prickly pear cactuses, the debris.

    The only Palestinians were Jews up until the 1960's. That means those people calling themselves Palestinians should be called Fraudestinians. No such thing as an Arab Muslim Palestinian until 1960's. The whole idea of Palestinian nationhood, occupation, or land theft is a fraud. Misplaced Arabs due to Arab Muslim aggression towards a newly formed Jewish nation established In the ancient homeland of the Jews, maybe. This pig won't fly. Look it up, dork.

    Called the the ticket agent at DFW and told her I wanted to book a round-trip flight to Palestine.
    She hung up on me.

    Laila El Haddad (a Palestinian who lives in Gaza) was booking a flight on British airways. When it came to selecting her country from the drop down list there was no Palestine. She complained to them until they added Palestine.

    Palestine is recognized by about 130 countries and several international organizations. Only a few specify borders.
