Earlier that afternoon, while Abbas and Erekat were watching the clock at the muqata, Netanyahu sat in his office, taking meeting after meeting. The houses are very old and sometimes shabby. On the other hand, some believe that Britain had no special plans for Transjordan initially. Hajj Amin el-Husseini, preeminent Islamic leader during the World War II era, was viewed by Adolf Hitler, Goebbels, and the Waffen-SS, as a "Muslim pope."

Iran is the only Middle Eastern country was never conquered by a European power, but it came pretty close in the 1900s. Conveniently forgotten is that the Jews accepted partition and the Arabs did not; that half the Palestinians who left in 1948 did so of their own volition; that more Jews left and were expelled from Arab countries than Arabs left and were expelled from Palestine; that Arabs were able to remain in Israel whereas the Arab states are effectively Judenrein; that Israel ceded the Sinai for a paper treaty, and Gaza in return for nothing but rockets and bombs; that, amidst a sea of Islamic states, it has accepted a Palestinian state while the Palestinians indignantly refuse to recognize it as a Jewish state; and that it was ready to compromise even on Jerusalem had Yasser Arafat been willing to take yes for an answer.

To resuscitate the great king of the Mongols. With the declaration of the creation of Israel, several Arab states declared war. The earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. This had never been possible for the Seleucids, who had always been masters of regions so vast as to render a unified and absolute control impossible. Australia, for its part, had signed a five-year agreement to fund the State-building programme in the Palestinian territories in the amount of $300 million, he said, adding that it was also increasing its support to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

Thereafter Canaan became, for all practical purposes, the Land of Israel. In 1973, Arafat ordered the execution of Cleo Noel, the American ambassador to the Sudan. Further, a Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip would do little to resolve the problem of refugees. Addressing the Jerusalem Committee of the Arab League, he noted that the Knesset's inscription had been gone for thirty-two years but went back up in 1990: Last year [1989] they stamped on its face the Israeli menorah, directly under which there is the map of Greater Israel.

But when Kerry emerged and took his aides to dinner, he spoke only in generalities. According to the report, Arafat continues to send his wife Suha an additional $100,000 � also from PA aid funds � each month to Paris, where she lives with their daughter. More than 150,000 Palestinians in the West Bank are on the PA’s payroll and thousands of retirees also depend on PA pensions. To protect its citizens, Israel has to ban all private Palestinian cars from the main roads, rebuild roadblocks and barriers throughout Judea and Samaria, and end the turnover of West Bank towns (especially Bethlehem) to the Palestinian Authority.

The proposal, referred to by the diplomats involved as “4+1”, may eventually lead to technicians from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan working alongside Israelis in joint command-and-control centers. By 1993 Israel and the PLO had met in Washington and signed an agreement that all parties hoped would end almost half a century of violence and hatred. Exact population statistics may be problematic, but it seems that by 1947 the number of Arabs west of the Jordan River was approximately triple of what it had been in 1900.

He regularly met with most major American, Soviet and other political personalities, and never failed to mention this in his conversation. All the Islamic Asian countries voted against partition, and an Arab proposal to query the International Court of Justice on the competence of the General Assembly to partition a country against the wishes of the majority of its inhabitants (in 1946 there were 1,269,000 Arabs and 678,000 Jews in Palestine) was narrowly defeated.

One example is a sermon broadcast on PA television where Sheik Ahmad Halabaya stated, "They [the Jews] must be butchered and killed, as Allah the Almighty said: 'Fight them: Allah will torture them at your hands.' Have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. S. sources provided contemporary confirmation of the same phenomena, which makes a mockery of apologetic explanations of the flights and expulsions of Palestinians as uniquely produced at the orders of the Arab Higher Committee, a theme common to many accounts of this period.

To date, mainstream accounts ignore the combination of factors that explain the evolution of this past history, which weighs so heavily on the present. Obama could easily force Israel to stop their excessive attacks. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.
