Discussion in 'Israel and Palestine' started by Coyote, Dec 12, 2015.
The one where a million Palestinians lived.
Do you not understand it's an embarrassment that you invent a history of a "country" that never existed? Apparently you do so to calm an emotional requirement that allows you the delusion of your alternate reality. You have invented some place that never existed and here you are, on a public message board, expecting others to take your delusion seriously.
I don't see a refutation.
Of course Arabs were concerned, their grandparents have just expelled Jews from all of their holy cities.Their parents had just commited a wave of pogroms and swore to expel Jews from their homeland.
Arabs feared that other indigenous people might see that and get the example,of how to get independent from the yoke of the Arab empire.
We have discussed The Map That Lies a number of times, showing how the well-publicized maps of "disappearing Palestine" are complete misrepresentations of the truth.
It turns out that the entire concept of the false map was done many years ago - by Zionists.
Yisrael Medad uncovered this map from an essay by L.B. Namier taken from “In the Margin of History” published in 1939.
The map accurately shows the diminishing size of the homeland promised to the Jews from the time of the Balfour Declaration through the British Mandate to the infamous 1939 White Paper:

Is there any predominantly Muslim nation that is not a social, economic or military disaster?
RE: The Official Discussion Thread for the creation of Israel, the UN and the British Mandate

This is NOT quite as easy to assess as a bundle (social, economic or military). With the exception of the Comoros, Mauritania and Djibouti - most of the Arab League nations have a fairly stable economy. But the comarative numbers globally are less than optimum.
As you can see from the two maps, a vast majority of the Islamic nations overlay the some of the poorest nations in the world; the entire North African Coast, the Central Asian 'stans, Arabian Sea, Persian Gulf, and Southeast Asian Island Chain. Obviously, correlation does not mean causation. (Must be Coincidence!)
The Jews were in Palestine as a matter of right and not sufferance.
The Mandate provided:
“The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced, shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co¬operation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.“
The first betrayal of that promise and right came in 1921 before the Mandate was signed. The Arabs had rioted and Britain decided to reduce Jewish immigration to “absorptive capacity” and told Chaim Weizmann that the mandate wouldn’t be signed if the Jews didn’t agree to delete temporarily, the east bank of the Jordan. The Jews had no choice but to agree and the Palestine Mandate was signed in 1922. This territory amounted to 78% of what was promised to the Jews and it ultimately became Jordan. The deletion of the east bank became permanent contrary to Article 5 which prohibited any removal of land from the Mandate.
While the British Cabinet was generally sympathetic to the Zionist project, the Civil Administration appointed by it to manage the mandatory was anti-Semitic. It restrained the Jews and emboldened the Arabs thereby violating its pledge to use its best efforts to facilitate the creation of a homeland. Whenever the Arabs rioted, the Jews were made to pay the price. Sound familiar?
After the Arab riots of 1929. a "white paper" was issued by Britain that stated that because of the shortage of arable land, Jewish settlement would be permitted only under stringent government supervision. Thus, another betrayal.
The step by step story of the 100 year betrayal of the Jews
The professor has a basic arithmetic mistake,
Arabs have started the war more than a 100 years ago.
Violence and pogroms against Palestinian Jews preceded Zionism and the mandate.
