Why are there still Palestinian Refugees?

by James Sinkinson

Refugee crises have afflicted millions of innocent war victims in the last century, but only one has stretched for a record-breaking seven decades.

In 1948, following Israel’s declaration of independence, five Arab nations launched a genocidal war to destroy the nascent Jewish state and annihilate its Jewish population.

Because of this war, hundreds of thousands of Arabs - who would later call themselves “Palestinians” - found themselves homeless. Hundreds of thousands heeded the commands of Arab leaders to leave their homes with the promise they could return pending extermination of the Jews.

In fact, the Arabs, not Israel, are responsible for creating the Palestinian refugee crisis. They rejected the UN partition plan for Palestine in 1947, because they refused to accept a Jewish state in what they regarded as Arab, Muslim land. Then, they invaded Israel, attempting to destroy the new Jewish state and its Jewish population. Note that without the Arab attack on Israel, there would be no Palestinian refugees at all.

Virtually all refugee crises in the last century have been resolved through resettlement. More than a million Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust and expulsion from Arab lands. Likewise, millions more refugees were resettled in the 20th century, including Germans expelled from Poland, Hungarians from Austria, Latin Americans from Chile, and Bosnians from the former Yugoslavia.

But the Arab states bordering Israel, to which most Palestinian Arabs fled, discouraged Palestinians from permanently resettling within their borders - refusing them citizenship, limiting their employment prospects and confining them to refugee camps.

UNRWA was supposed to be a temporary organization set up to resettle Palestinian refugees. But to this day, it has failed to resettle even one refugee. UNRWA has become a bastion of antisemitism and terrorism, with about 10% of UNRWA’s 13,000 Gaza staff belonging to Hamas or Islamic Jihad, according to Israeli intelligence.

The Palestinians have nurtured a culture in which martyrdom in the service of killing Jews and destroying Israel ranks higher than building a thriving state. Palestinians frequently boast that, “We love death like our enemies love life.” No surprise Palestinians have made little progress in creating a sustainable economy, institutions of governance, or political freedom.

Return the Hostages or Israel will Invade Rafah

“There will be no ceasefire for even a day until our hostages are returned. Either return our hostages or we will expand the fighting to Rafah. We are prepared for this, and will work in coordination with our partners, including Egypt, to evacuate the civilian population to safe areas. Then we will take action,” - Benny Gantz.

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

While showing tent city next to the border with Egypt at Rafah crossing on every news channel, they say that civilians of Gaza have nowhere to go. Why evacuating millions of Syrians, Sudanese, and Ukrainians from war zones to neighbouring countries were and is still an acceptable procedure by international norms, but different rules and restrictions are imposed by the United Nation on saving lives of so-called Palestinians? What is so special about them? Why is Israel not allowed to wage and finish the war against Hamas after its brutal attack on Israel?

Terrorists Arrested at Nassar Hospital

IDF captured some 100 terror suspects at Nassar hospital. Over 20 terrorists who participated in the October 7th massacre have been apprehended. Several terrorists were captured around the hospital. As expected, this medical center was also a major terror hub. During the IDF operation at Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, troops located medications with names of hostages inside the building.

NO to US Plan for Palestinian State

The United States and its Arab allies in the Middle East are again trying to force the so-called “two-state solution” down Israel’s throat. The “detailed, comprehensive plan” would include the expulsion of more than half a million Israelis from their homes and communities in Judea, Samaria, the Jordan Valley and literally half of Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem. Israeli lawmakers and ministers from across the political spectrum - with the exception of those in the Arab Israeli parties (enemies within) - are categorically opposed to this move.

Egypt Creates a High-Security ‘Prison’ for Gazans

The construction work currently taking place in eastern Sinai, is intended to create a high-security gated and isolated area near the borders with Gaza strip, in preparation for the reception of Palestinian refugees in the case of the mass exodus of the citizens of Gaza Strip. The works started on February 12, under the supervision of the Egyptian Armed Forces Engineering Authority.

UNWRA Banned from Israel

The Knesset has approved in a preliminary reading the bill to ban activities of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA) in Israel. The proposal was supported by 33 Knesset members, with 10 opponents, and will be forwarded to the Foreign Affairs and Security Committee for discussion.

Unifying Hamas and the PA

The Palestinian Authority is inching closer to an agreement with the Hamas terrorists. Hamas approved a three-phase plan leading to “complete reconciliation (with Fatah)” and the Gaza-based terror group joining the Palestine Liberation Organization, which controls the Palestinian Authority, under a “unified Palestinian-Arab vision.” (All the PLO members have common vision, unifying factor, - killing Jews and destroying Israel.)

The UN Must Evacuate Civilians from Gaza War Zones

Israel called on UN relief agencies on Monday to help with its efforts to evacuate civilians from Gaza war zones ahead of its planned ground sweep of Rafah, a town on the enclave's border with Egypt which is crowded with displaced Palestinians. "We urge UN agencies to cooperate," government spokesperson Eylon Levy said in a briefing. "Don't say it can't be done. Work with us to find a way."

Al Jazeera 'Journalist' is a Hamas Commander

The IDF has discovered a laptop in a Hamas base in northern Gaza which belonged to Muhammad Washah, a journalist for Al Jazeera. Investigation of the laptop revealed photos that connect Muhamed to Hamas, indicating that the journalist also served as a senior commander in Hamas’s antitank missile system. (In a small strip of Gaza, there were hundreds of registered 'journalists' before Hamas terrorist attack on Israel. Some of the are already neutralised by IDF.)

Gun License Feminism in Judea and Samaria

258 women have received licenses to carry firearms in the past four months, in contrast to only 12 in the same four months last year. Another few hundred requests are waiting for approval by the Firearms Licensing Department of the National Security Ministry.

Egypt has Warned Hamas

Egypt has delivered a message to Hamas warning that it has only two weeks to reach prisoner exchange agreement, if not Israel will begin a large-scale ground offensive into the Rafah region in southern Gaza. Egypt is exceptionally worried about the possibility that tens of thousands of Gazans will attempt to cross the Egyptian border when the operation begins. In light of this, Egypt has established multiple fortifications on its northern border. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel was formulating a "detailed plan" to evacuate civilians from Rafah. (It is easy to move them to Sinai, which is only a few meters away from Rafah.)

The UN Justifying Heinous Terror Attack on Israel

United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestinian Territories Francesca Albanese claims October 7 only happened because of 'Israeli oppression'. Albanese made the shocking statement in response to French President Emmanuel Macron, who called the October 7 attacks "the largest antisemitic massacre of our century." Albanese has been involved in numerous antisemitism scandals since being appointed as Special Rapporteur. (As of April 2023, there are 79 Special Rapporteurs appointed for the following 14 countries and 45 thematic mandates. Only one of them, the Jew-haters, is heard from.)

Homicidal Israeli Arab Society

Crime among the Israeli Arab society has been rising at an unprecedented rate. There were 233 crimes in the last year, which is more than double the 109 in 2022. The ratio of homicides in 2023 in Israel is 13:1 between Arabs and Jews. The Israeli Arab population's homicide rate is among the highest in high-income countries, with 4.9 per 100,000, more than seven times the amount within the Jewish population, which is 0.67 per 100,000.

Quote of the Week:

“We were attacked in the worst attack on Jewish people since the Holocaust. The October 7 massacre was equivalent to 29 of 9/11s attacks in one day, and the equivalent of 50,000 Americans slaughtered - burned, maimed, raped, beheaded - and 10,000 Americans taken hostage, including mothers and children. So, what would America’s response be? I would say it would be at least as strong as Israel’s and many Americans tell me, ‘We would have flattened them. We would have turned them into dust.’” - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  At first, 'they' demanded that Israel must respond proportionally' to the 7/10 attack, but didn’t like it. Now, 'they' are calling for a permanent ceasefire to save Hamas, and to deny Israel a victory again! What would the US do to HAMAS?

The Fake Palestinians are just an Excuse

by Duvi Honig

Why are America and the West the ones who give Palestinian Arabs millions annually while 25% of the world, 1.8 billion Muslims (as opposed to the Jews who are 0.2 of the world's population in a tiny land), ignore those they claim to care so much about?

America and the West are gifting billions annually to officially help the Palestinian Arabs for 70 + years now, while the Palestinian Arabs go out to the streets and chant Death to America, pledging the destruction of the West, burning American flags in the streets. They not only do not say thank you, they used US taxpayers’ dollars to build terror tunnels against Israel and sleeping cells around the globe to attack the West, and educating Palestinian Arab children to grow up to be martyrs and view Israel and the West as their enemy.

It’s clear that their concern is not love for Palestinian Arabs but hate for the Jewish people.

Israel was deceived by the West when it was pressured to give away a significant piece of land in the Gaza Strip in 2005, which constitutes a quarter of the state of Israel, in the hopes of achieving peace. However, instead of fostering peace promised by the West, this led to the UN double-crossing Israel and helping Hamas build an army and tunnels connected to the UNRWA infrastructure.

After October 7th it became clear that the demands placed on Israel are not realistic.

It’s not peace that the world is looking for but the extinction of the Jewish nation - that's their true agenda.

And if not, it is time for the world to stop blinding itself and address the issue of antisemitism. (International Antisemitic political elite will not do it until Israel starts behaving as a true independent and self-respecting country!)
