FROM 1919 TO 1948 GAZA AND THE WEST BANK WERE BRITISH CONTROLLED. FROM 1948, GAZA WAS CONTROLLED BY EGYPT, AND THE SO-CALLED WEST BANK WAS CONTROLLED BY JORDAN - A COUNTRY INVENTED BY THE BRITISH.
ARABS LIVING IN GAZA AND THE WEST BANK DIDN'T EVER DEMAND THEIR OWN COUNTRY BACK THEN.
THEY HAVE ONLY DEMANDED AN INDEPENDENT PALESTINIAN SINCE 1967.
UP UNTIL THEN IT WAS CLEAR THAT THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE WAS PART OF THE OVERALL ARAB EFFORT TO EXPEL JEWS FROM THE ENTIRE HOLY LAND - SOMETHING THEY'VE BEEN TRYING TO DO FOR A LONG LONG TIME.
AS A MATTER OF FACT - SO LITTLE DID THE ARABS CARE ABOUT FOR NATIONALITY -- AS OPPOSED TO THE UMAH AND PAN-ARABISM (WHICH TRANSCENDS NATIONHOOD) -- THAT FROM THE TIME NASSER AND HIS MILITARY JUNTA OVERTHREW THE KING OF EGYPT UNTIL RECENTLY, ARAB DICTATORS FROM NASSER TO SADDAM AND ASSAD THE ELDER ALL TRIED TO FORM A "UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC" OF ONE SORT OR ANOTHER, AND NOT A NATION-STATE FOR EVERY LOCAL BUNCH OF ARABS.
THE QUEST FOR A NATION FOR THE SO-CALLED PALESTINIAN ARABS IS A RUSE. A HOAX. A TACTIC. MERELY PART OF THE ARAB AND MUSLIM EFFORT TO MAKE THE HOLY LAND JUDENREIN.
In the 1940s, rulers such as Abdullah I of Jordan and Nuri as-Said of Iraq sought to create an expanded Arab empire constructed out of the smaller nation-states that had been created in the mandate period. Abdullah's dream was to be king of a Greater Syria while as-Said's dream was for a Fertile Crescent Federation. These aspirations, however, were unpopular and met with suspicion in the countries they sought to conquer. The creation of the Arab League and its insistence on the territorial integrity and respect for sovereignty of each member state, the assassination of Abdullah, and the 14 July Revolution weakened the political feasibility of these ideas.
During much of the 20th century, the rivalry between Syria and Nasser in Egypt for who would lead the union undermined the effort of forming a united Arab state. In 1958, Egypt and Syria temporarily joined to create the United Arab Republic. It was accompanied by attempts to include Iraq and North Yemen in the union. This very exercise, while fostering Egypt's position at the centre of Arab politics, led to the weakening of Syria.
With the Iraqi revolution taking place in the same year, Western powers feared the fallouts of a powerful Arab nationalism in the region. Foreign powers were not only concerned about the possible spread of such revolutionary movements in other Arab states, but also worried about losing the control and monopoly over the region's natural oil resources. However, due to discontent over the hegemony of Egypt and after a coup in Syria that introduced a more radical government to power, the United Arab Republic collapsed in 1961. The term United Arab Republic continued to be used in Egypt until 1971, after the death of Nasser.
AND FREE OF CHRISTIANS TOO. A HUNDRED THOUSAND HAVE ALREADY FLED POST-MUBARAK EGYPT.
SINCE 1900, MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS HAVE FLED THE MUSLIM CONTROLLED PARTS OF HOLY LAND. (MORE HERE.)
MEN OF GOODWILL SHALL FIGHT THOSE WHO TRY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS TOOTH AND NAIL - OVER EVERY SQUARE INCH.
BLOOD SHALL RISE NECK-HIGH FROM THE NILE TO THE EUPHRATES BEFORE THIS EVER EVEN COMES CLOSE TO HAPPENING. AND MOST OF THAT BLOOD SHALL BE ARAB AND MUSLIM.
SO IT IS WRITTEN.]
