PALESTINE-- CONGRATULATION FOR BEING RECONGNISED

Congratulation for your flag been hoisted at the UN and you are recognised as a country and nation.

MAP OF ANCIENT PALESTINE  


TO START WITH THE BIBLICAL AND REALITY OF PALESTINE DIFFER WIDELY, DUE TO ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDS.  EXPERTS HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT SOLOMON ARE MYTH LIKE KING ARTHUR.

THERE WERE NO ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVIDENCES FOUND
DWELLING UNCOVERED IN 1925  
TELL ES-SULTAN,  JERICHO  
10,000 TO 5,000 BC



The country is situated on the east coast of the Mediterranean. During Biblical time kingdoms Judea and Israel occupied the area.  It is known as the Holy Land and Palestine is sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

The name Palestine comes from Palestina or Philistia, the land of the Philistines who settled there in the 12th century BC with the Canaastines who were there from the 2000 BC. 

The Hebrews whose religion taught them that the land was promised by God and Moses led them there were under the rules of the Philistines till 1000 BC.  After that they set up an independent kingdom.

When their king Solomon died in 922 BC they divided it into two kingdoms Judea and Israel.  Israel was defeated by the Assyrian in 722 and Judea by Nebuchadnezzar II in 586 BC. He destroyed Jerusalem and made the Jews move to Babylon.

In 536 BC the Persian emperor Cyrus II conquered the Babylonians and the Jews were released from exile.  The Jews achieved independence again.  However, the Jewish Maccabee dynasty rebelled against the Seleucids’ rulings.

In 63 BC the Romans conquered the land.   The Herod dynasty ruled over parts of Palestine and in 66 AD a Jewish revolt broke out.  During the Roman occupation Palestine converted to Christianity included the empire under emperor Theodosius in 380 AD.

In 641 the country was conquered by Arab

In 1095 a confrontation between the Seljuk Turks and Byzantines and pilgrimages to the Holy Land had to stop.  Pope Urban II established the First Crusade.  Inn 1099 the crusaders invaded Jerusalem and massacred all inhabitants. They set up a Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem or Outremer.  I t was later on ruled by the Mamalukes and from 1516 by Ottoman Turks. It remained under the Ottoman Turks till 1918.

When the Turks and Germans were defeated by the British the land west of the River Jordan became officially Palestine under a British mandate in 1920. This was officially accepted by the League of Nations in 1922.  It implemented the 1917 Balfour declaration promising support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Jews kept migrating and the build up ended into a war between Arabs and Jews in 1936.

After the Second World War Jewish people were migrating there and it created tension. 1948 the British end their mandate and Israel was established.
THE YELLOW MARKED AREA WAS THE  LAND GIVEN TO ISRAEL IN 1948
According to reports 750,000 Palestinians had to leave their homes to make place for Israelis

Between 1948 and 1949 and Arab-Israel war was fought. It ended by Palestine lost it political identity and was divided up by Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip and Jordan the West Bank.

1967 saw the six-day war fought by Israel with Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Israel conquered the West Bank, Golan Height, Gaza Strip and Sinai.

Any negotiation between Arabs and Israelis failed.  On one site the Palestinian Liberation Organisation and most of the Arab countries refused to recognise Israel as a nation. On the other site Israel refused to deal what it sees as terrorists.

In 1978 under the Camp Davis Accord, Israel withdrew from the 
captured Egypt territories.  Unrest began in the remaining territories and in 1988 Jordan withdrew its claim on the West Bank.  PLO declared independent Palestine authority there and agreed for Israel to exist.

Peace made progress with the Labour led-coalition in Israel. In the following year Washington Accords were signed.  It contained an agreement PLO recognition of Israel and Palestine self-rule n the Gaza Strip and Jericho.

Yasser Arafat became the first president of the Palestine National Authority n 1994. The Palestinian people are classed as Arabs which they are not.  DNA showed that they are dependence of a tribe which is related to the Israelis. 

Now they are called terrorists but looking at the map is it a wonder that these people rebel? Which nation would stand for it and yet the world shuts its eyes

The following  picture shows and proves all the injustice Palestinian people received from Israel and still receiving.






















If that is not dictatorship; what is? Yet the USA and the West are calling every other leader in the Middle East dictator.  They murdering, land grabbing and raiding houses in the middle of the night, arresting young boys of the Palestinian people is still going on without being stopped by the USA. Is it that the USA needs a safety spot in the ME for its weapons, nuclear and chemical weapons?

As you can see Palestine lost more land since 2000 (map above) and the world looks on. Israel will not stop until all the land is theirs. USA calls everyone a dictator and tyrant in the Middle East and declares an illegal war on them but not Israel.



In 2014 Israel attacked the Gaza Strip because three   Israelis were found dead and it blamed Hamas for their murder.  During the 50 days war Gaza was almost levelled and cost over 2,000 people’s lives; while Israel lost 67 people. The whole world was in uproar because the people of Gaza could not move since their borders were closed and were sitting ducks.

Hamas denied they killed the three Israelis.  During the fighting Israel claimed that an Israeli soldier was kidnapped by Hamas and then killed.  Three days later it was revealed that the soldier was killed in the fighting but Israel straight away made another night of bombing.  Did Israel know that their soldier was shot in the fighting and not kidnapped and killed by Hamas?
   
After the Israelis were forced to stop bombardments and get their troops out of Gaza they confiscated, two days later, over 400 hectare land from the West Bank, destroyed the villages and build their settlements.  Another report stated that they were planning a further 950 hectares to take from the West Bank. To revenge the three Israelis killed. This time even the USA which is their greatest supporter criticised them but criticism alone will not stop Israel.

In 30 September, 2015 the UN decided to recognise Palestine as a country and raised their National Flag. Palestine is now a nation again.

According to reliable reports the bombing by Israel in Gaza is still going on despite Israel agreed to stop bombardments. Where is the UN and USA to stop Israel?

  2. Thank you, Ed Mulrenan, for your comment. Although I agree with you it could be so but I only can state what archaeologists that so far they have not found any evidence. It does not mean that Solomon and David did not exists.
