So the Republicans are running another old, white, senile, warmongering geezer who is a self-professed Middle-East historian. A Zionist tool who claims that the Palestinians were “invented”. If any group in the Middle-East were “invented” it would be the Israelis,lol.
I was disappointed to see Cain drop out of the race too…
Having said that I have to disagree with you on the rest. Learn history, the Palestinians were invented. The Zionist movement that lead to Jews returning to their ancient homeland got under way in the 1880’s. At that time the land was an almost completely uninhabited wasteland.
As the Zionists numbers increased and they created an economy more workers were needed to support the economic growth. That was when the Ottoman empire stepped in and put a limit on the number of Jews it would allow into their homeland. So they were forced to bring in Arabs from all over the middle east by the Ottoman’s to support the growing economy.
That is why most of the so called Palestinians have family names that can be traced back to villages all over the middle east that are outside of the area they call Palestine.
So Newt is right. The Palestinians are an invented people who were forced upon the Jews by the Ottoman’s at the beginning of the twentieth century. They had only been on that land a generation before the influx of Jews at the end of world war two. And the reason for them being there was to keep the Jews from forming an independent state on their ancestral homeland which their ancestors had been driven off of by force. [/quote]
Before 1948 there was no such thing as an Israeli or an Israel. If anyone are the “invented” people, it’s the Israelis.
