    Best answer: Your supposed question is a statement, not a question, Israelis are the least racist people on this earth, however, Arabs living in the west bank and Gaza are just Arabs, we have a large Arab population in Israel too, as for what you call Palsetinians, like most Israelis we think the Only Plishtim that ever lived on our land the land of Israel are the Biblical Plishtim, these people were sea dwellers from Crete, the word Plishtim means invadors, that's exactally what they were, and so are these modern invaderswho call themselves Palsetinians.

    I'll quote Newt Gingrich,,,,
    Republican Newt Gingrich said in a cable TV interview that Palestinians are an “invented” people with no apparent right to their own state.

    In the interview, Gingrich spoke about his mistrust of Palestinian leaders, his admiration for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his view that the in the past the Obama administration “favored the terrorists” with its foreign policy.

    “Remember, there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire,” Gingrich said. “We have invented the Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs and are historically part of the Arab people, and they had the chance to go many places.”

    “For a variety of political reasons,” Gingrich continued, “we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s, and I think it’s tragic.”

    Best answer: There is not letter P in the Arabic Alphabet, most Arabs cant even say the name of WHAT THEY CLAIM AS THEIR COUNTRY !!
    Israel was often called Palestine which is a derogatory term used by her enemies in the past. There was never a Palestine and there is no such thing as Palestinian people until the conflict of our modern time. Israel is referred this by the Arabs because the Arabs want to insinuate they stole the land from them.

    The Bible never uses the name of “Palestine”, but calls it the land “Judah” or “Israel”. Mt. 2:20-21: “Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead who sought the young child’s life. And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.”

    To understand this name we must look at some historical background. In Joel 3:4: “Indeed, what have you to do with Me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the coasts of Philistia?

    The Philistines were not Middle Eastern or Arab. The Philistines are believed to be an Aegean people (from the Adriatic sea near Greece.) who, in the 12th Century BC, settled along the Mediterranean coast of what is called the Gaza Strip.


    THE origins of the word Palestine have been debated for years and are still not known for sure, the name is believed to be derived from the Egyptian and Hebrew word peleshet. Roughly translated to mean rolling or migratory, the term was used to describe the inhabitants of the land to the northeast of Egypt - the Philistines. The Philistines were an Aegean people - more closely related to the Greeks and with no connection ethnically, linguisticly or historically with Arabia - who conquered in the 12th Century BCE the Mediterranean coastal plain that is now Israel and Gaza.
    A derivitave of the name Palestine first appears in Greek literature in the 5th Century BCE when the historian Herodotus called the area Palaistin?(Greek - Παλαιστ?νη). In the 2nd century CE, the Romans crushed the revolt of Shimon Bar Kokhba (132 CE), during which Jerusalem and Judea were regained and the area of Judea was renamed Palaestina in an attempt to minimize Jewish identification with the land of Israel.

    Under the Ottoman Empire (1517-1917), the term Palestine was used as a general term to describe the land south of Syria; it was not an official designation. In fact, many Ottomans and Arabs who lived in Palestine during this time period referred to the area as Southern Syria and not as Palestine.

    After World War I, the name Palestine was applied to the territory that was placed under British Mandate; this area included not only present-day Israel but also present-day Jordan.

    Leading up to Israel's independence in 1948, it was common for the international press to label Jews, not Arabs, living in the mandate as Palestinians. It was not until years after Israeli independence that the Arabs living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip were called Palestinians.

    Best answer: Hello,

    Palestinians are taught hatred of Jews / Israel, by their education system.

    The Palestinians attached to the land of Israel - Really? - They tried to take Jordan by force in 1970-71, and tried to take Lebanon by force in 1975.

    Also, that "Palestinian" flag - identical to the Jordanian flag, save for a removed star.

    Whereas there is no evidence that Israel has any policy of targeting / mistreating civilians, due to anti-Jewish ethnic-hatred and territorial ambitions the Palestinians seek to ethnically-cleanse (or murder) the Jewish People from the Jewish People's ancestral homeland of Israel, and target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children.

    Israel's defence forces defend only when attacked, defending Israel's citizens (including Muslims) against Palestinian terrorism, taking steps no different to that which any other country would take to attempt to protect their citizens from attack, and while exercising necessary restraint in the face of hate-filled Palestinian young people / children.

    The real reason why Palestinian young people / children have such hatred that they typically display, is that due to ethnic-hatred of Jewish people and also territorial ambitions, the Palestinian education system in the Palestinian Territories practices mind-abuse; teaching hatred as shown below.

    As a result, Palestinian young people / children are consumed with hatred against Israel and in particular Jewish people:
    Example:
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jan/01/ahed-tamimi-palestinian-girl-filmed-slapping-israeli-soldier-is-charged-with-assault

    Palestinian ethnic-hatred of Jewish people has not changed since the Palestinian support of the Nazis in the second world war. Due to ethnic-hatred of Jewish people and also territorial ambitions, the Palestinian education system in the Palestinian Territories practices mind-abuse, teaching:
    > Hatred of Jewish people,
    > a false victim-mentality,
    > that Israel does not exist (aka the Palestinian claim over ALL the land);
    > and similar to the propaganda of Nazi Germany, that the Jew / Israel is the (fake) cause of all Palestinian alleged issues:

    Post from Mark L. Levinson:

    Here is part of a report [“PA Education Report for Teachers Union 210715”] from Palestinian Media Watch:
    http://www.palwatch.org/STORAGE/special%20reports/PA%20Education%20Report%20for%20Teachers%20Union%20210715.pdf

    Fighting Israel until liberation is a religious battle for Islam

    The PA [Palestinian Authority] schoolbooks present fighting against Israel as mandatory in the name of Islam. The books teach that the conflict with Israel is “Ribat for Allah” which is defined as “one of the actions related to Jihad for Allah, and it means: Being found in areas where there is a struggle between Muslims and their enemies.” [Islamic Education, grade 12, p. 86].
    Israel cannot be recognized in peace because it is said to exist on Islamic land. The conflict with Israel is described as “one of the greatest of the Ribat, and they [Palestinians] are worthy of a great reward from Allah”. [Ibid, pp.86- 87.]
    Finally, the children are taught that they can never make peace with Israel, as this battle is eternal: “The residents of Al-Shaam in general, and Palestine in particular, are in Ribat until Resurrection Day.” [Islamic Education, Grade 12, p. 87.]

    This religious directive to fight Israel is also expressed in a schoolbook published by the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs. This excerpt also demonizes Jews by calling them “the robbing Jews”:

    “Today the Muslim countries urgently need Jihad and Jihad fighters in order to liberate the robbed lands and to get rid of the robbing Jews from the robbed lands in Palestine and in the Levant” [Religious Issues, Grade 8 ,p. 12, no date, issued by the Ministry of Religious and WAQF Affairs of the Palestinian Authority, translated by Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education]

    Accordingly, Palestinian violence against Israel since Israel’s founding in 1948 is defined as: “resistance ... acts of most glorious heroism.” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Commentary, Grade 12 p. 105]

    Terminology of Disdain

    The terminology and lessons regarding Israel that PA educators have chosen to include in the schoolbooks reinforce the message that youth should not accept Israel as a neighbor with a right to exist. The following are examples of phrases describing Israel:

    • ”The Zionist enemy;” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, Grade 12, p. 122]

    • ”The Zionist entity;” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, Grade 12, p. 104]

    • ”The enemy of this people;” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, Grade 12, p. 17]

    • ”The Zionist gangs;” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, Grade 12, p. 104]

    • ”Zionist Imperialist plan.” [Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, Grade 12, p. 103]

    • ”Your enemies killed your children, split open your women’s bellies, held your revered elderly men by the beard, and led them to the death pits.” [Reading and Texts, Grade 8, Part 2, [2003] (reprinted 2007), p. 16, translated by Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education]

    • ”By your life! How is it that snakes invade us and we [still] observe a protection covenant [dhimma] which respects commitments?” [Arabic Language—Linguistic Sciences, Grade 12, (2010), p.61, translated by Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education]

    A world without Israel - Israel does not exist at all

    Aside from the hate and violence promotion and the denial of Israel’s right to exist, the schoolbooks already present a world in which Israel does not exist. “Palestine” today is said to be a “state” (Arabic – “Dawla” = state) with water access in both the Mediterranean and the Red Seas, a situation possible only if Israel does not exist. [Physical Geography and Human Geography, Grade 12, p. 105]
    Likewise, the size of the “state” of “Palestine” is said to be more than 10,000 sq. km., which is the figure for the area only if Israel does not exist, as the full West Bank and Gaza Strip total only 6220 sq. km. [Physical Geography and Human Geography, Grade 12, p. 107]
    Since “Palestine” is defined as encompassing all of Israel, the implicit promise is that Israel eventually will no longer exist: “Palestine will be liberated by its men, its women, its young, and its elderly” [Arabic Language and the Science of Language, Grade 12, p. 44].

    The reader may also find the analysis on the following webpage interesting:
    http://www.thetower.org/article/the-palestinian-textbook-fiasco/

    Palestinians are taught similar to Nazi Germany, that the Jew / Israel is the fake cause of all Palestinian alleged issues, for example:
    The Palestinians have a problem of child sexual abuse, while deceiving the world it is all Israeli's fault for causing Palestinians “stress” by Israel deploying an economic-blockade – a blockade due to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.
    See:

    The Palestinian Education Authority in the Palestinian Territories teaches Holocaust-Denial and admiration of the Nazis:

    The “Palestinian National Charter” seeks the expulsion of the Jewish People from the Jews ancestral homeland of Israel:

    Best answer: No, firstly the UN is not a world legislature or a court
    The UN does not have the power to unilaterally define the borders of states (as it has said itself in the case of the Iraq Kuwait border dispute)
    UN Members are only obligated to obey binding resolutions (which there are several good reasons to think UNSC 2334 is not)
    that Article 25 states that ‘The Members of the United Nations agree to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council in accordance with the present Charter.’
    Article 80 of the UN charter prohibits it from altering any rights of any peoples granted under any previously existing international agreements (Article 6 of the Mandate for Palestine, for example, giving Jews the right ‘close settlement’ of the land throughout its borders - which has never been revoked by any binding agreement)
    That (even if the UN was a world legislature ) several international tribunals (the ICJ and the ICTY Appeals Chamber for example) have stated in binding decisions that the UN is not unbound by law (for example, Article 80 of its charter)

    http://www.un.org/webcast/pdfs/SRES2334-2016.pdf
    If you read this t, you will notice that the UN does NOT say in it that ‘settlements in occupied territory are illegal’. Nor has it ever said that. (Bear with me and I will explain).

    In Tibet, North Cypress, Western Sahara, the Ukraine AND Berlin (which the US and Russia occupied until 1990) as well as several other cases, hundreds of thousands of citizens of the occupying powers have resided in the respective occupied territories. (Also, in some cases their governments actually did physically transfer them there, and in some of those cases the number of settlers exceeds the number of original occupants). However, none of those cases have ever been mentioned by the UN or any other ‘organ of international law’ as a violation of the 1949 Geneva Convention. And in fact, when the very same West Bank territory referred to by UNSC 2334 was occupied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967, Jordanian citizens moved to the West Bank and THIS was never mentioned by the UN or any other ‘organ of international law’ as a violation of the Geneva Convention.
