The Dirty Little Secret: Palestinians Don’t Exist!

There is no such group as the Palestinian people. They have never existed, do not exist now, and will not exist in the future. They are the only people in all history that came into existence in a single day! This was admitted by Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist: “Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian?” He added that he did not mind Jordanian rule.
He and his compatriots were Jordanians “until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians.” Shoebat was saying that when the Jews re-took their historic and biblical homeland, the myth of an Arab Palestinian nation was created out of thin air and promoted worldwide. The gullible media, too lazy to do the research, still spouts the PLO line about the “Palestinian people.”

It is political humbug. Those people who are identified as “Palestinians” are simply refugees from Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. However, there are millions of these people who were born in refugee camps and have been taught they are “Palestinians.” But they are not. In 1948 and the1950s, displaced Arabs lived in abject squalor in refugee camps (supposed to be temporary) under the custodial care of the United Nations. Muslim leaders did not care about them until it became politically expedient to do so. There are no Palestinian people, or history, or culture, or coinage, or language, or uncovered artifacts. Palestinians don’t exist and never have. Muslims and media that promote “Palestinians” are repeating a falsehood and resisting the facts.

It must be emphasized that God loves Arabs as much as He does Jews; however, Jews have a special place in His plan. His plan was to redeem man through the sacrificial death and resurrection of His Son. Those “Palestinian” leaders who spout hatred for every non-Muslim are loved by God even if men have trouble loving them.

Israel was originally called the “land of Canaan” (Gen. 12:5), the “land of Israel” (1 Sam. 13:19), and the “land of Judah” (Isa. 19:17). The first century Jews had a thing about being under the thumb of the Romans (or anyone) so they seethed in constant hatred and rebellion against their oppressors. The Roman Emperor Hadrian was understandably (from his totalitarian view) displeased with the rebellious Jews and wanted to erase the name of Israel and Judah from history and the face of the Earth. He decided to ridicule them by renaming the land of Israel, “Syria Palaestina” identifying them with their hated enemy, the Philistines. Whatever Rome called the land, the Jews were still Jews.

It is from the term “Philistines” that the name “Palestinians” has been taken. Emperor Hadrian knew that Philistines were ancient enemies of the Jews and therefore the emperor showed his hatred and spite by giving Israel a new obnoxious name. Philistines were not Arabs (and were in fact, invaders from Crete) and there is no mention of Palestine until the first century. Palestinians are not mentioned in the Bible or Koran because they did not exist until after 1967.

In 135 Hadrian put down a Jewish rebellion by killing 580,000 Jews, leveled 985 villages and 50 fortified towns. That is why Jewish writers always refer to him by saying, “may his bones be crushed.” Psalm 83:3-4 probably prophesied Hadrian’s oppressive actions: “They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”

It didn’t work and never will work. Zachariah 2:8 warns: “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.” Jews, even while in rebellion, are special to God. Jews are forever!

God promised (and warned) in Genesis 12:3: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee.” Hitler and all Jew-haters discovered that verse to be literally true.” Earlier Americans learned that truth while Muslim nations have not. The results are obvious.

The “Palestinians” are bogus, a political show, and it’s time to pull the curtain on the charade.

    Good article. Gen. 13:15 “For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendents FOREVER.” What is there about “forever” that the world does not understand? Israel once before lost her land for a number of years — first to Assyrians and then to Babylonians, but the Abrahamic Covenant continued in effect even during this period. The parallel to then and now is striking. God used a non-Israeli power to restore Israel to her land (Cyrus of Persia). In 1948, after over 1800 years of diaspora, Israel was returned and settled in her land by another Gentile power — this time the UN. No one can explain this miraculous occurance that fulfilled the prophecies that foretold the resettling of Israel after so long a dispersion to all the nations and isles from the four corners of the earth. Now that israel is restored, events that are foretold re: the future kingdom as now in march. We’re just waiting for the rapture. Hallelujah!

    Here’s a little more grist for the mill. I read Joan Peter’s “From Time Immemorial,” which seems to lay out this “no Palestinian people” argument best. From my limited historical knowledge, it seemed to present a plausible argument. However, it has caused real controversy as revealed int his article ( Despite its apparent flaws, Peter’s book, in my opinion, presents an argument that is consistent with the biblical story. One thing cannot be disputed — the argument made by modern Palestinians that they are the the descendents of the Philistines who pre-dated the Israelites in that geography — the argument is completely bogus. Even the two cultures, when compared, are disparate. The Philistines were an industrious, intelligent, technologically astute people, which the “Palestinians” have never been. I agree that the majority of “Palestinians” make up Jordan, and a whole lot of angst would be relieved if the world would name Jordan the “Palestinian” homeland, tell all of them to recur to that nation, and let the world get on with other more serious problems. Problem is: King Hussain doesn’t want them either because they are a threat to his power. He is one of the major influences behind naming the West Bank a “Palestinian” nation. The upshot of all this — Israel will continue to be a “burdensome stone” to the nations until her King establishes His Kingdom in Jerusalem. Until then, hatred for the Jews will keep the world in a turmoil, and all of this is a test to the nations (sheep/goats) that will determine their place in the kingdom. America had better weigh carefully her waning support for Israel. Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed. It’s an inexorable law.

      Thanks Jim. I deal with some criticism in tomorrow’s blog and column.

    Your right, palistinians don’t exist. I’m just a mythical creature as well as my family. I am no race. My family who has lived In israel for generations deserves to be exiled and oppressed unfairly because they were Christian AND palistinian. Hey you got this all figured out! People are so smart these days. You know nothing, I will take you to Jerusalem and show you the tons of children being killed under the age of 12, the racism that is being inflicted upon the Arabs that is worse then the blacks and whites, the illegal demolition of palistinian homes and crop land. You have to realize whether you beleive palistinians are mythical unicorn creatures who don’t exist or not, there are palistinians in Jerusalem who there WAY before 1948. You go to israel today and you can’t find ANY barely ANY Jewish family that has roots before 1948. Don’t beleive me? Go to youtube and type in “where ya from” and watch it. Please use your brain my friends. Learn the facts, and not the religious bias dogma you were told to listen to. Look at it the way God does, not humans. We do exist.

      Did you notice that you did not refute my article? Disagreeing is not the same as providing answers. “Palestinians” as a people, group or nation do not exist. Saying they do, does not make it so. As to “tons” of kid being killed by Israel, you are blowing smoke. Please also note that no Jewish kids are programmed to become killers of innocent people. Those Arab kids (and adults) killed are killed by daily shelling by the “peaceful” Muslims outside Israel. They kill their own people yet you blame the Jews. Your “people” living in Israel are among the most fortunate people in the Middle East. They can vote and serve in the Israeli government. Name one, I say one, Muslim run nation where Jews can serve in the government. Jews are not even permitted to enter Saudi Arabia! The fact that some Arabs live in Jerusalem means nothing. If I had moved there 50 years ago, it would not make me a “Palestinian.”

        Are you smoking those funny cigarettes or are you off your meds? Answer my charges in the column.

    I love this article! I think the same of Americans: they don’t exist. They should be called just Europeans and sent back to Europe. The same goes for all those similar artificial creations that weren’t mentioned in the Holy Bible. I’d like to know what do you think of Christian Arabs, since you seem to consider all the Arabs Muslims and of course they are not.

    • Don Boys April 14, 2016

      I never said all Arabs were Christians. I think Christian Arabs are my brothers and sisters in Christ. I have met many and even spent time with them in Israel, Lebanon, etc. What’s your point?

  5. Dee Ramsey March 30, 2016

    I like the way you laid it out there in words that even a simpleton could understand. Those in denial and who have been lied to all their lives are NOT going to change the way they “think” or their beliefs. It is evident that these people cannot handle the truth about how they have been lied to by “their own people.” It is really disheartening! All we can do is continually push back and challenge them on their untruths!
