The class war you are fighting

The bone marrow of the left, the ideas that give it momentum and make its war against America a forever war,” is a class-based society, an oligarchy, a reset to the days of divine-right rule before the Magna Carta and before the American and French revolutions.   Ultimately, the leftist utopia is a society based on eugenics, wealth and power. Race, gender, politics, popular culture, media, war, educational systems, established religions, international relations are their means to that end and each of these means has its technocracy and trade craft for “radically transforming” society and government.

 

Reformed radical David Horowitz explains, “Chief among them [the leftist ideas] is the notion that ‘equality’ must be created by any means necessary. But, as he shows in his writings, “Disparities and disproportions of talent, intelligence and physical ability are intrinsic and so basic to the entire human enterprise that creating equality can only be accomplished by a violent social engineering, which is why the seductive utopias of the left always turn out to killing fields in disguise. The demands for ‘social justice’ by today’s progressives are just another version of the demands for equality by yesterday’s Marxist Leninists. Both promise human redemption. Both produce the destruction of human freedom.”

 

The dividers claim a mixed-race royal wedding marks the end of white supremacy, having been paid by the donations of the rich and powerful class. That same class by their political contributions a borderless, wall-less, value-less and weapon-less world … for everyone except them. As before the Magna Carta and revolutions, when the plagues come, they will be protected in behind walls, gun turrets and layers of expendable people.

 

It is unequivocal and natural law: you and I will never be equal. Or as Thomas Sowell puts it, “Nobody is equal to anybody. Even the same man is not equal to himself on different days.”  But, liberty requires that the law treats each citizen equally in the eyes of the law. The technocracy of ‘social justice’ with its trade craft known as community organization have radically transformed equality in the eyes of the law into institutions that in fact protect the oligarchy. They can buy their private beaches, votes in Congress, never-be-jailed-cards, research studies, smear campaigns and “news.” You and I cannot. That was the plan for identity politics and it worked.

 

The intelligentsia that coagulates in schools eliminates opposition, like the “White Russians” who spearheaded the Russian Revolution and the Chinese Revolution, and then the “Red Russians” eliminate them and establish tyranny of the oligarchy. The class struggle on the streets, whether KKK, Antifa, or Islamic is the means to tyranny of the oligarchy … a means to establish a class-structured social order with different rules for them and us.

 

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” ~ Frédéric Bastiat

 

This is true for governments, corporations, universities, unions, and churches. The iron law of technocracy is: The larger it is, the more it will be used against you.  The FBI, the Department of Justice, the EPA, the United Nations, European Union, the Catholic Church, Net Neutrality and social media, courts of law, etc are all being actively used against you.  Apathy and tolerance enable the tyranny of class.

The founders and framers of the American republic understood human nature and natural law.  They fought with their lives, their property and about thirty percent of their fellow colonists to overthrow a divine right king and oligarchy.  They did not design a national government but a federation of state governments, leaving most of the political power to the states and the people.  And the powers that were authorized to the three independent parts of the federal government were designed to offset each other.  The colonists wanted to put a king’s crown on the man who led them against the mad king of England, but he refused the crown.  The colonists, now citizens, elected our first President instead.

 

And ever since then, oligarchs have been fundamentally transforming our republic of the people and states into the heavily centralized national government that it is today.  But the oligarchs have even larger plans that are even worse for the people.  Their utopia is global.

 

Social justice warriors, indoctrinated and paid by oligarchy, want a borderless globe.  Citizens fail to heed the admonitions of Thomas Jefferson, “A single consolidated government would become the most corrupt government on earth.”  In a letter to Edward Carrington, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” He noted that “one of the most profound preferences in human nature is for satisfying one’s needs and desires with the least possible exertion; for appropriating wealth produced by the labor of others, rather than producing it by one’s own labor… the stronger and more centralized the government, the safer would be the guarantee of such monopolies; in other words, the stronger the government, the weaker the producer, the less consideration need be given him and the more might be taken away from him.” (1)

 

And citizens fail to heed the admonitions of George Washington in his farewell address to the new nation. “It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.” …

“Taking care always to keep ourselves by suitable establishments on a respectable defensive posture, “we may safely trust to temporary alliances for extraordinary emergencies.”

Our founders and framers were not utopians.  They were utilitarian and pragmatic.  Washington and Jefferson were not arguing for isolationism.  They were arguing for strong homeland defense and arguing against empire and well-known urges, especially the will to power.

 

So long as you accept the authority of government, there will always be wars.  Democracy is wholly unsuited for empire, whether national or global: unfortunately, almost no one listened or understood, much less put in practice the advice of our founders and framers.  Without democracy, where does that leave you?

Yes, volcanoes in Hawaii emit CO2

EPA and global warming alarmists use reports from NOAA’s atmospheric CO2 observatory which is located on Mauna Loa.  “The Mauna Loa data are being obtained at an altitude of 3400 m in the northern subtropics, and may not be the same as the globally averaged CO2 concentration at the surface. “  https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/  Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 are not consistent globally.  Sampling CO2 on the side of a volcano is a problem, but the problem is meaningless compared to the global warming/climate change fraud.

 

Yes, volcanoes emit large amounts of CO2, but the amount is small compared to emissions from oceans and land.  Volcanic activity is the only way that CO2 is returned to the atmosphere once the CO2 has been turned into limestone/CaCO3, which of course results from the continuous natural degradation of all biological material that enters the oceans.  Sedimentation of that degraded organic matter plates out in layers which eventually become stone on the bottom of all oceans.  That stone is the ultimate carbon sink.  The high heat of a volcano or deep earth magma is required in the reaction to release the CO2 from CaCO3.   CO2 in the atmosphere is the only pathway for carbon to enter the food chain.  Most CO2 re-enters the atmosphere from the oceans.  Of course, carbon is the building block for all biology.

 

That is the carbon cycle simply put.  Leave it to arrogant, hubristic so-called “progressives” to break that carbon cycle.  Meanwhile they sue, berate and threaten people who call them on their fraud, in addition to funneling billions of dollars of taxpayer and unwitting donor money into crony projects.

 

Volcanic CO2 is not a major contributor to total atmospheric CO2 concentration.  Nor are humans a major contributor to atmospheric CO2 concentration, only about 3.4%.

 

There are many unanswerd scientific problems which falsify the global warming hypothesis, as you know.  Most significantly, the atmosphere cannot significantly warm the oceans because of the huge difference in heat capacity, and the logarithmic/non-linear physical chemistry of CO2 energy absorption and emission. Doubling of CO2 concentration results in progressively diminishing amounts of warming.  CO2’s IR quanta are already almost filled at 400 ppm.

 

To scare people, they present a graphic CO2 steadily rising from 200 ppmv to 400ppmv and sound alarms to extort money.  But 200 ppmv is barely enough to keep plants alive.

 

Lawyers could make many millions and stop this fraud by filing triple damage cases against climate alarmists who are promoting the perhaps unintended consequence of killing the planet … or more likely … the radical reduction in human population under the disproven eugenics theories of Thomas Malthus, Paul “Population Bomb” Ehrlich,  John Holdren and Margaret Sanger…now joined by Charles, soon to be King of England.

 

More than you wanted or expected as usual, and most you already know, but you may want to forward it.

Iran’s intentions were never there

“It was all there on paper in black and white, down to the precise number of centrifuges: the terms of a potential “fix” that President Donald Trump had demanded for the United States to stay in the Iran nuclear deal.” ~ Garrett O’Brien

Fools have always rushed in

Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature. Alas! Is it rendered impossible by its vices? In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated…

So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter, without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others, which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions, by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluged citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation…

It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.

Taking care always to keep ourselves, by suitable establishments, on a respectable defensive posture, we may safely trust to temporary alliances for extraordinary emergencies. …

Harmony, liberal intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing with powers so disposed, in order to give trade a stable course, to define the rights of our merchants, and to enable the government to support them, conventional rules of intercourse, the best that present circumstances and mutual opinion will permit, but temporary, and liable to be from time to time abandoned or varied, as experience and circumstances dictate; constantly keeping in view, that it is folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that, by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favors; and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard. :

Fools rushed into Iran agreement

The problems with the Iran nuke deal are not in the words written in the agreement. The first problem is that Obama and Kerry implemented this deal as an executive agreement instead of a treaty, and then Democrats used parliamentary tricks to prevent Republicans from killing the agreement. Then Obama transmitted million of dollars to Iran without approval of Congress. And then Democrats turn around and try to act as if this executive agreement carries the full force of an international treaty as specified in the Constitution. The second and more profound problem is that Iran has no intention of fulfilling this agreement and they never did. It is purely a manipulation by Iran, Obama and Kerry knew that, and the theocrats in Iran announced it. Only naive people and those in denial believe that Iran is dialing back its nuclear weapons intentions. Iran’s leaders plan to dominate the world.
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
A senior advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said Iran has no intention to enter into a treaty with the United States, but it is engaged in nuclear talks with the major powers “within a predetermined framework” to reach an agreement to protect national interests.
 
Pointing to US President Barack Obama’s remarks that a prospective nuclear deal with Ian will not be “an official treaty”, Ali Akbar Velayati said, “We also are not that eager to make a treaty with the Americans… what is obvious is that Iran wants to protect its nuclear rights and wants to be able to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes within the framework of international regulations.”
 
“Based on this belief and view, we have engaged in the talks with the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) and Iran has never been seeking to conclude a treaty with the US or other countries.”
 
In addition, Velayati said, “In the future negotiations with the P5+1, which should be balanced and fair, we will call for the lifting of sanctions at the same time as Iran takes steps to (meet commitments) regarding its nuclear activities as laid out in the previous round of talks (in the Swiss city of Lausanne which led to a joint statement on April 2 outlining the key points of a final deal).

Schneiderman resigns

This is the same attorney general who colluded with Al Gore and other attorney generals in attempts to use the legal system to punish people, associations and corporations who are skeptical of alarmist claims about global warming.

Deplorable.

The multiculturalism umbrella: Made in Islam wool (reblog)

The multiculturalism umbrella: Made in Islam wool

Why do US citizens miss the wool being pulled over their eyes? Because Americans are conditioned to be tolerant and compassionate, to embrace multiculturalism and respect each other’s beliefs, ideals and values. Islam, however, does not reciprocate.

Amil Imani, 03/05/18 16:08 | updated: 15:52

Amil Imani bio

The writer is an Iranian-American writer, poet, satirist, novelist, essayist, literary translator, public speaker and political analyst who has been writing and speaking out about the danger of radical Islam internationally. He has become a formidable voice in the USA against the danger of global jihad and Islamization of America. He maintains a website at http://www.amilimani.com. and wrote the book Obama Meets Ahmadinejad and a new thriller Operation Persian Gulf

Ever since the massive arrival of Muslims to the Western hemisphere, our Western culture and world have been forever altered, thanks to the ceaseless attempts of the left to create a failing Utopian Multiculturalism paradise while forcefully jamming it down the throats of unsuspecting citizens.

Europe is dead in the water, as every recent election has shown. Even the politicians are admitting it now. Then why they still insisting that we must coexist and keep importing more Muslims who will NEVER assimilate? Let me be clear, multiculturalism spells the demise of our Western culture. Is that what we want?

The controversy is ongoing: whether in Europe or in the US, the leftist intelligentsia and elitists continue to demand that they have seen the truth, that all people can live peaceably together so long as we are tolerant and have the right laws in place.

The West has been tolerant, but “tolerance in the face of evil is not tolerance, it is a crime.”  It wasn’t long ago, we were defending ourselves at the Gates of Vienna from a Muslim invasion. Now, we welcome Muslims with open arms and generous welfare policies. Any push back to these open immigration practices is labeled Islamophobia, racism, bigotry, etc. But what cost do these changes bring?

The battle with these barbarians has been proven to be arduous and long. It is a duty of all enlightened individuals to work their hardest to fumigate these leeches from the body of humanity.

Billboards have been popping out and sneakily remind the viewers about their kinship with Muslims: “Islam: The message of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad.” Well folks, the messages suggest —Christians and Jews—the overwhelming majority of the people in the United States, you need to relax about Islam. Muslims are family. They are your kindred through your shared progenitor, Abraham, so they claim. Having Abraham as an ancestor would demand that the “children” be loving siblings. That’s the message the American Muslims try to convey. And that’s the way they aim to keep us in the deadly slumber of complacency and the delusion of multiculturalism.

For one, multiculturalism and multi-religionism are not interchangeable and are not one and the same.

Muslims and their frequently well-paid apologists use the multiculturalist umbrella only in non-Islamic lands to shield themselves from the torrent of legitimate criticisms that those who know Islam better shower on this cult of violence peddled as the religion of peace.

You don’t need to listen to me and don’t listen to these conniving dissimulators. Please search it for yourself. See if the euphemism of multiculturalism is ever even mentioned by any Islamic leader, ever printed in the Islamic press, or ever appears in any form anywhere in Muslim countries.

This multiculturalism gambit in is Islam manufactured wool to pull over the eyes of the non-Muslims while Muslims carry on with their unrelenting campaign of eradicating anything or anyone non-Islamic anywhere and everywhere in the world.

Trust me, people like us, through reason and a tremendous act of will, who have freed ourselves from the enslaving yoke of Islam placed around our necks from birth, know about all the heinous inside dirt of this plague of humanity. We have experienced Islam first-hand and up close from the inside. We have studied the Quran, the Hadith, and the Sunna. We have seen Islam in action where it wields sway.

The more we studied and the more we experienced Islam, the more our efforts to remain in the fold became untenable. We broke away from Islamic slavery and found it to be our solemn duty to expose this religion, help other Muslims to free themselves from it, and warn the good-hearted and gullible non-Muslims of the world against falling prey to it.

The Muslim organizations in America, generously financed by the oil-rich Muslim governments and sheikhs, are directed to sell Islam Lite for long enough until this ideology runs deep roots and real Islam is introduced.

One can see how the scheme played out in Europe. Much of Europe is already past the stage of Islam Lite and knee deep into the quagmire of real Islam. And that’s exactly where things are headed in America.

There are some non-Muslims, good-hearted tolerant people who tend to overlook all the terrible things that Islam perpetrates by pointing to some of its good teachings. These folks contend that the world should direct its effort not at combating Islam, but at those individuals and groups that commit heinous acts in the name of Islam.

There are others who disagree with this benign approach. This latter group sees all the so-called aberrations as an inherent part and parcel of Islam. They believe that it is Islam that actively promotes and is terribly out of sync with the best interests of the 21st century world.

I say, humanity must remain strong and resolute, they must stop deluding themselves. Islam will never ever coexist with infidels.
While we frivolously waste our precious time talking about it without any drastic action taken, Islam and Sharia continue to furtively creep into every aspect of American culture.
We all need to move on. To move away from exclusionary, primitive, and tribal mentality to a vision of all humanity being one, with justice and liberty for all

While we frivolously waste our precious time talking about it without any drastic action taken, Islam and Sharia continue to furtively creep into every aspect of American culture. But only too few dedicated freedom loving people are sounding the alarm. That’s not enough. Why most of our fellow citizens don’t get it? Because Americans have been conditioned by the liberal elites to be tolerant and compassionate, to embrace multiculturalism and respect each other’s beliefs, ideals and values.

That’s wonderful in a utopian world, but the fact is, Islam doesn’t embrace any aspect of Western civilization—much less American culture. Americans are rapidly and methodically being dismantled as a nation, and our freedom and liberty is more fragile than at any time since WWII. And while we fight the enemy abroad with combat troops, intelligence and drone strikes, we’re doing nothing to combat the same exact enemy that resides on our own soil in broad daylight.

I cannot emphasize enough the urgency of this threat. It is indeed urgent that we confront Islamic ideology and its expansionism, close down all of their chapters across America and declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. All of us, must pressure our government, at all levels, abandon the practice of ‘political correctness’ and protect the American people and act to safeguard liberty against the truly deadly assault that is Islamic ideology.

It is long past time for our elected officials to wake up.

Divine Rights

America and the world in general are already fully onboard the slippery slope downward to loss of all rights.  This was driven by the global elites, the CFR and their NWO agenda and the tolerance and apathy of the people.  Intellectual indolence is not an overstatement of the absence of action to protect the foundations of America’s freedom.  Tocqueville and Lord Acton would be appalled at American intellectural indolence.  But ninety percent of the last two generations of Americans do not know them.

Our slide down the slippery slope is a public and open conspiracy, available for all to see in the heavy documentation by the UN, EU, NAFTA, as well as the rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court (e.g. the supposition by elties that the Constitution is a “living document”) and countless unconstitutional laws enacted by the U.S. Congress and signed by presidents.  We the people only receive and we will only receive lip service for our rights from here on out.

Gun rights represent the God-given right to self-protection, but that right is just one example.  The presumption by so-called liberal/progressives – and divine right kings, queens and emperors – is that all rights are given to the people by their rulers, the government, and that we the people owe fealty to the rulers.  That is feudalism and it is regressive to centuries past, not liberal, not progressive, not democratic.

The U.S. has already been converted to an oligarchy.  The U.S. is an oligarchy.  And, among other rights they deny us, they will take away the right to self-protection so that they can force any action on the people; that process has been underway for decades bit by bit in the courts, media and schools.  There are already two sets of rules, one for the people and another for the oligarchy.

 

https://scholar.princeton.edu/sites/default/files/mgilens/files/gilens_and_page_2014_-testing_theories_of_american_politics.doc.pdf

 

“The US is dominated by a rich and powerful elite.

 

So concludes a recent study by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin I Page (see link above for a review by the authors.  The full research report is also available online.)

 

This is not news, you say.

 

Perhaps, but the two professors have conducted exhaustive research to try to present data-driven support for this conclusion. Here’s how they explain it:

 

Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.

 

In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power.

 

The two professors came to this conclusion after reviewing answers to 1,779 survey questions asked between 1981 and 2002 on public policy issues. They broke the responses down by income level, and then determined how often certain income levels and organized interest groups saw their policy preferences enacted.

 

“A proposed policy change with low support among economically elite Americans (one-out-of-five in favour) is adopted only about 18% of the time,” they write, “while a proposed change with high support (four-out-of-five in favour) is adopted about 45% of the time.”

 

On the other hand:

 

When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it.

 

They conclude:

 

Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But we believe that if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened.

 

Eric Zuess, writing in Counterpunch, isn’t surprised by the survey’s results.

 

“American democracy is a sham, no matter how much it’s pumped by the oligarchs who run the country (and who control the nation’s “news” media),” he writes. “The US, in other words, is basically similar to Russia or most other dubious ‘electoral’ ‘democratic’ countries. We weren’t formerly, but we clearly are now.”

 

This is the “Duh Report”, says Death and Taxes magazine’s Robyn Pennacchia. Maybe, she writes, Americans should just accept their fate.

 

“Perhaps we ought to suck it up, admit we have a classist society and do like England where we have a House of Lords and a House of Commoners,” she writes, “instead of pretending as though we all have some kind of equal opportunity here.”

 

http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-echochambers-27074746

 

Here we have the British, who are thoroughly and completely indoctrinated, wanting Americans to rejoin them in the feudal misery.

 

So long as people believe in the authority of government, as opposed to believing that the people are the authority and taking responsibility for that authority, then the people will continue to be cannon fodder in the wars of oligarchs.

Climate Fraud

There is no real world evidence that human-produced CO2 causes any measureable amount of climate change.

If you think there is evidence, then post it.

Models of climate, which are only hypotheses, so far, do not validate when compared to real world conditions. Until they have a reproducible model which produces accurate forecasts, understanding of climate will remain incomplete and unworthy of the fear and money drummed up for it.

Furthermore, we know from years of science that more CO2 is healthy for plants and we know that atmospheric CO2 is THE ONLY mechanism by which carbon enters the food change for all life on this planet. Even further, we know that life in the past has been very abundant and growing when temperatures have been much warmer.

Human-caused climate change/global warming is a fraud. Scientists are now backing away from it so they do not end up being blamed, as they will be, by politicians and NGO’s. In the scientific literature, the amount of warming projected has been declining for years.

Climate models versus climate observations

Arab Historian Admits there is No Palestinian People

Arab Historian Admits there is No Palestinian People

Judith Bergman09/11/2017

When the Ottoman rule ended, there was no Palestinian national identity or political borders. It was all made up later. Arabs themselves say so, but the west isn’t listening

The founding of Tel Aviv

The founding of Tel Aviv 1909 (GPO)

 

One of the biggest, most stubborn and costliest untruths of our time is the notion that the jihad waged by Arabs in the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Gaza against Jews in Israel is a national struggle of an indigenous people for independence.

No matter the facts, the lie persists to the tune of billions of dollars in international aid and political prestige, which makes it increasingly difficult for anyone involved to admit that the whole thing is nothing more than a propaganda stunt.

Unlike the fairy tale of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’, everyone pretends to be blind and deaf when it is pointed out that the emperor is naked. In fact, if the emperor himself were to stand up and yell, ‘I am naked folks, go home!’ the crowd would go on complimenting his non-existent garments.

Last week the naked emperor did just that:

“Before the Balfour Promise, when the Ottoman rule [1517-1917] ended, Palestine’s political borders as we know them today did not exist, and there was nothing called a Palestinian people with a political identity as we know today”, historian Abd Al-Ghani admitted on official PA TV on November 1.

“Since Palestine’s lines of administrative division stretched from east to west and included Jordan and southern Lebanon, and like all peoples of the region [the Palestinians] were liberated from the Turkish rule and immediately moved to colonial rule, without forming a Palestinian people’s political identity.”

In 1917, says this Arab historian on official PA TV, there was no such thing as a Palestinian people. This statement amounts to saying that the whole narrative of an ‘indigenous Palestinian people’ was made up at a later point in time.

As Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad speaking on Al-Hekma TV said in March 2012: “Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis. Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians…”

There is a reason, why the “Palestinian National Museum” is empty of historical artifacts.

The Arab historian’s admission corroborates the observations of 19th century travelers to the region, who notably had no specific political agenda when they visited, unlike so many visitors to Israel today:

”Outside the gates of Jerusalem, we saw indeed no living object, heard no living sound”, wrote French poet Alphonse de Lamartine about his visit in 1835.

”The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is that of a body of population.” wrote British Consul James Finn in his 1857 description of the Holy Land.

”Palestine sits in a sackcloth and ashes. Over it broods the spell of a curse that withered its fields and fettered its energies. …Palestine is desolate and unlovely….It is a hopeless dreary, heartbroken land.” wrote American author Mark Twain in his description of his visit in 1867.

Nevertheless, the Arab propaganda machine gets away with publishing fantastic falsehoods, such as this one on the Palestinian Authority’s tourism website: “With a history that envelops more than one million years, Palestine has played an important role in human civilization. The crucible of prehistoric cultures, it is where settled society, the alphabet, religion, and literature developed, and would become a meeting place for diverse cultures and ideas that shaped the world we know today”.

The international community not only approves of these falsehoods, it happily pays for them.

Historian Abd Al-Ghani’s declaration on PA TV was a historic, highly newsworthy admission that ought to have made the headlines everywhere, considering the importance the issue is given by political leaders, diplomats, the media and other establishment figures all over the world.

After all, if the Arabs themselves admit that the ‘Palestinian people’ is an invented entity, should not the consequence be that the countless UN projects, billions of dollars in international aid, and the endless campaigns against Israel cease and be used for more noble purposes?

The answer is yes, but no one is paying attention.

We live in a post-factual world. Facts no longer have any currency, unlike feelings and ideological posturing. The truth has been reduced to a troublesome inconvenience and if it happens to stare you in the face, nothing could be easier than closing your eyes or simply looking away.
