If this issue seems complicated,
it does not need to be.

An article entitled “Palestinians Are Not Wanted In Jordan” appeared in Haaretz on December 13, 2017, and it is quite interesting. At first glance, the title of the article would appear to indicate that we are referring to two separate and distinct groups of people: Palestinians and Jordanians.

Yet history records two kings of Jordan claiming that there is no difference between the Jordanians and Palestinians.

In a 2004 article entitled Jordan is Palestine, we can review this history.

“Palestine and Jordan are one…” said King Abdullah in 1948.

“The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan,” said King Hussein of Jordan, in 1981.

Jordan is Palestine. Palestine is Jordan.

As the article demonstrates, this was the royal decree and sentiments of two Jordanian kings.

But many years later, a 2010 Al Jazeera article entitled “Jordan Is Not Palestine” goes against the recorded declarations of two Jordanian Kings.

Hmmm. Very interesting.

But wait. There’s more…

Azmi Bishara, an Arab public intellectual, political philosopher and author, asserted that “There is no Palestinian people — and never was.” A translation is provided in the description of the YouTube video.

Azmi Bishara (translation): “Well, I dont think there is a Palestinian Nation at all. I think there is an Arab Nation, I always thought so and I didn’t change my mind. I don’t think there is a Palestinian Nation, I think its a Colonial invention Palestinian Nation. When were there any Palestinians? Where did it come from? What I think there is an Arab Nation. I never turned to be a Palestinian Nationalist, despite of my decisive struggle against the Occupation. I think that until the end of the 19th century, Palestine was the South of Great Syria.

Okay. So which one is it?

This is one of those situations in which it’s easy to say, “It’s complicated.” But if this issue seems complicated, it does not need to be.  This is one of those cases in which something very simple is intentionally complicated.

Need proof?

Zuheir Mohsen (19361979) was a Palestinian leader of the Syria-controlled as-Sa’iqa faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) between 1971 and 1979.  He is quoted in as follows:

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

Along the same lines as Zuheir Mohsen’s words, WND delivers a no-holds-barred article on the topic. The title of the article is Palestinian People Do Not Exist, and it confronts the issue unapologetically to say the least.

A provocative headline? It’s more than that. It’s the truth. Truth does not change. Truth is truth. If something was true 50 years ago, 40 years ago, 30 years ago, it is still true today. And the truth is that only 30 years ago, there was very little confusion on this issue of Palestine. READ MORE…

So why is all of this so important?

This is important for a number of reasons.

First of all, if that which was asserted by two separate Jordanian kings was true, then Palestinians already have a home, and it is neither necessary or appropriate to pressure Israel to give up any land to create a Palestinian State.

Second, if there is actually no such thing as a Palestinian people, then it is important to expose the fact that the so-called Palestinian issue has been knowingly exploited for “political and tactical reasons.”

Third, as we see the enemies of Israel renewing their exploitation of this issue in response to President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel, this information provides a solid historical foundation for the friends of Israel to stand their ground.

Most importantly, we have the historical record of the Scriptures, including many very specific prophecies concerning Jerusalem in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament of the Bible.  Current events are playing out what was prophesied in the Bible. Take, for example, the following prophecy concerning Jerusalem in Zechariah chapter 12:

A prophecy: The word of the Lord concerning Israel. The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”
(Zechariah 12:1-3 NIV)

In particular, the prophecy says that Jerusalem will be an immovable rock for all the nations and that all who try to move it will injure themselves. The greater context of the prophecy is “the word of the Lord concerning Israel.” So when the prophecy speaks of Jerusalem and how the Lord will make Jerusalem immovable, the context clearly associates Jerusalem with Israel.

By The Numbers

The word Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible 801 times.

In fact, the words “Jerusalem” and “Israel” are mentioned together in the same verse 92 times.

Conversely, the Quran (Koran) does not mention Jerusalem even once.
