PALESTINIANS ARE ARABS, WITH ARAB CULTURE, ARABIC LANGUAGE AND ARABIC HISTORY – PHILISTINES ARE FROM CRETE, PRESENT DAY GREECE
- It is from the term “PHILISTINES” that the name “PALESTINIANS” has been taken
- The philistines were a confederation of non – SEMITIC people coming from CRETE and the AEGEAN islands – present day GREECE!
- Arab dwellers decided upon the creation of a 5th column population – the creation of PALESTINIAN people
- There is no prove of PALESTINE lineage to the PHILISTINES and if so, then their true homeland would be the isle of CRETE and not JUDEA or SAMARIA
- The correct geographic name of the land of JUDEA is CANAAN, and not “PALESTINE”
- CANAANITES are better known in history by their GREEK name, PHOENICIANS
- The PHOENICIANS were “ARABIZED” and their present –day state is LEBANON
- PHILISTINES were organized in city-states
- PHILISTINES lived in present day GAZA and never populated HEVRON, JERUSALEM or JERICHO
- The “PALESTINIAN refugees” lie
There is no entity such as PALESTINIAN people, or PALESTINIAN culture, or PALESTINIAN language, or PALESTINIAN history. There has never been any PALESTINIAN state, neither any PALESTINIAN archaeological find nor coinage.
PALESTINIANS are the newest of all the people on the face of the earth and began to exist in a single day. It is unique in the history of mankind, as it is witnessed by WALID SHOEBAT, a former PLO terrorist that acknowledged the lie he was fighting for and the truth he was fighting against.
“Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a JORDANIAN and overnight I became a PALESTINIAN?” “We did not particularly mind JORDANIAN rule.”
“The teaching of the destruction of ISRAEL was definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves JORDANIAN until the JEWS returned to JERUSALEM. Then all of a sudden we were PALESTINIANS, they removed the star from the JORDANIAN flag and all of a sudden we had a PALESTINIAN flag”.
“When I finally realized the lies and myths I was taught, it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out”.
Indeed, there is no such thing as a PALESTINIAN people, or a PALESTINIAN culture, or a PALESTINIAN language, or PALESTINIAN history. There has never been any PALESTINIAN state, neither any PALESTINIAN archaeological find nor coinage.
ARAB DWELLERS DECIDED UPON THE CREATION OF A 5TH COLUMN POPULATION – THE CREATION OF PALESTINIAN PEOPLE
The present- day “PALESTINIANS” are ARABS, with ARAB culture, ARABIC language and ARABIC history. They were JORDANIANS (A BRITISH invention, as there has never been any people known as “JORDANIANS”), and after the Six-Day war in which ISRAEL defeated the coalition of nine ARAB states and took legitimate possession of JUDEA and SAMARIA, the ARAB dwellers in those regions decided upon the creation of a 5th Column Population, the creation of the PALESTINIAN people.
To justify their claim to JUDEA, the PALESTINIAN leaders claimed two contradictory lineages from ancient people that inhabited The Promised Land: the CANAANITES and the PHILISTINES.
THE CORRECT GEOGRAPHIC NAME OF THE LAND OF JUDEA IS CANAAN, AND NOT “PALESTINE”
The CANAANITES are historically acknowledged as the first inhabitants of the Land, before the HEBREWS settled there. The correct geographic name of the Land of JUDEA is CANAAN, and not “PALESTINE”. They were composed by different tribes that may be distinguished in two main groups: the NORTHERN or COAST LAND CANAANITES and the SOUTHERN or MOUNTAIN CANAANITES.
CANAANITES ARE BETTER KNOWN IN HISTORY BY THEIR GREEK NAME, PHOENICIANS
The NORTHERN CANAANITES settled along the coast of the MEDITERRANEAN SEA from the southeastern side of the Gulf of ISKENDERUN to the proximities of the Gulf of HAYFA (HAIFA). Their main cities were TZUR, TZIDON, GEBAL (BYBLOS), ARVAD, UGARIT and are better known in history by their Greek name, PHOENICIANS, but they called themselves “KANA’ANA” or “KINACHNU”. They did not found any unified kingdom but were organized in self-ruled cities. Their language was adopted from their SEMITIC neighbors, the ARAMEANS, and was closely related to HEBREW (not to ARABIC).
So similar were the languages that PHOENICIANS and ISRAELITES did not need interpreters to understand each other. They followed the same destiny of ISRAEL and fell under ASSYRIAN rule, then BABYLONIAN, PERSIAN, MACEDONIAN, SELEUCIAN and ROMAN. Throughout their history the PHOENICIANS intermarried with different people.
THE PHOENICIANS WERE “ARABIZED” AND THEIR PRESENT –DAY STATE IS LEBANON
During the ISLAMIC expansion they were “Arabized”, yet never completely assimilated, and their present-day state is LEBANON, erroneously regarded as an “ARAB” country. A label that LEBANESE people reject.
The only mention of the term ARABIC in the LEBANESE constitution refers to the official language of the state which does not mean that the LEBANESE people are ARABS in the same way the official language of the UNITED SATES is ENGLISH but this does not qualify the AMERICANS as BRITISH.
The so-called PALESTINIANS are not LEBANESe (although some of them came from SYRIAN – occupied LEBANON), therefore they are not PHOENICIANS (NORTHERN CANAANITES). They are despised in LEBANON as “refugees”.
TRIBAL ALLIANCE SYSTEM INSTEAD OF ORGANIZED STATE
The SOUTHERN CANAANITES dwelled in the mountain region from the GOLAN southwards, on both sides of the YARDEN and along the MEDITERRANEAN cost from the Gulf of HAYFA (HAIFA) to YAFO (TEL – AVIV). They were composed of various different tribes: besides the proper CANAANITES (PHOENICIANS) AMORITES, HITTITES and HURRIAN people such as the YEVSITES, HIWITES and HORITES, never constituted and unified, organized state but kept within the tribal alliance system.
When the first HEBREWS arrived in CANAAN they shared the land but did not intermarry due to a ban on exogamy. Nevertheless, eleven of the twelve tribes inter-married with CANAANITE women (Joseph married and EGYPTIAN), and since then the tribes began to mix with the local inhabitants.
After the Exodus, when the ISRAELITES conquered the land, there were some wars between them and the CANAANITES throughout the period of (JUDAH). CANAANITES are seldom mentioned during the king’s period, usually in reference to their heathen customs introduced among the ISRAELITES, as a good portion was already assimilated.
IT IS FROM THE TERM “PHILISTINES” THAT THE NAME “PALESTINIANS” HAS BEEN TAKEN
When the ASSYRIANS overran the kingdom of ISRAEL, they did not leave any CANAANITE aside. The same occurred when the BABYLONIANS overthrew the kingdom of JUDAH.
Therefore, the only people that can trace back a lineage to the ancient CANAANITES are the JUDEANS, not the PALESTINIANS, as CANAANITES did not exist any longer after the 8th century b.c.e.
It is from the term “PHILISTINES” that the name “PALESTINIANS” has been taken, and the only similarity between both is that they are both invaders of distant lands.
THE PHILISTINES WERE A CONFEDERATION OF NON – SEMITIC PEOPLE COMING FROM CRETE AND THE AEGEAN ISLANDS
That is precisely the meaning of their name that is not an ethnic denomination but an adjective, PELESHET, from the verb “PELESH”, “DIVIDERS”, “PENETRATORS” or “INVADERS”. The PHILISTINES were a confederation of non – SEMITIC people coming from CRETE, the AEGEAN ISLANDS and ASIA MINOR, also known as Sea People. The main tribes were TZEKELESH, SHARDANA, AKHAIUSHA, DANAUNA, TZAKARA, MASA or MESHWESH, LIKKI, DARDANA, TURSHA, KESHESH or KARKISHA, LABU and IRVEN.
The original homeland of the group that ruled the PHILISTINE FEDERATION, namely the “PELESTI”, was the island of CRETE. When the MONOIC civilization collapsed, the MINOIC culture also disappeared from CRETE, as invaders from GREECE took control of the island.
PHILISTINES WERE ORGANIZED IN CITY-STATES
The ancient CRETANS arrived in SOUTHERN CANAAN and were known as “PELESTIM and KERETIM” by HEBREWS and CANAANITES. The first settlement seem to have been GAZA, whose original name was “MINOAH”, a clear reference to the fallen MINOIC kingdom. They also invaded EGYPT and were defeated by PHARAOH RAMOSE III in the 12th century b.c.e.
PHILISTINES LIVED IN PRESENT DAY GAZA AND NEVER POPULATED HEVRON, JERUSALEM OR JERICHO
PHILISTINES were organized in city-states, being the most important the PENTAPOLIS: GAZA, ASHDOD, ASHKELON, GATH and EKRON. Their territory was close to the Mediterranean coast, a little longer and broader than the present – day “GAZA – STRIP”, not the whole JUDAH, they never reached HEVRON, JERUSALEM or JERICHO.
Those “SEA PEOPLE” that invaded EGYPT were expelled towards other MEDITERRANEAN lands and did not evolve into ARABS, but disappeared as distinguishable groups in ROMAN times. Those dwelling in CANAAN were defeated by King DAVID and reduced to insignificance. The remaining PHILISTINES still dwelling in GAZA were subdued by SARGO II of ASSYRIA and after that period disappeared from history. They were only mentioned again after the return of the JUDEAN exiles from BABYLON.
THERE IS NO PROVE OF PALESTINE LINEAGE TO THE PHILISTINES AND IF SO, THEN THEIR TRUE HOMELAND WOULD BE THE ISLE OF CRETE AND NOT JUDEA OR SAMARIA
There is no single person in the world who is able to prove PHILISTINE lineage, and if the PALESTINIANS are truly PHILISTINES , then their true homeland would be the Isle of CRETE and not JUDEA or SAMARIA.
SO WHY JUDEA IS NOW CALLED PALESTINE?
In the 2nd century c.e., the last stand of the remnants of the JUDEA against the ROMAN EMPIRE ended with the well-known event of the siege of MASSADA. The land where the siege occurred was until then the province known as JUDEA, and there is no mention of any place called “PALESTINE”, prior to the siege.
ROMAN EMPEROR HADRIAN was utterly upset with the JUDEAN NATION and wanted to erase the name of JUDA from the face of the earth, so that there would be no memory of the country that belonged to the rebel people. Thus he decided to replace the denomination of that ROMAN province and resorted to ancient history in order to find a name that might appear appropriate, and found out about the extinct tribe which was unknown in Roman times, “PHILISTINES”. Therefore, according to LATIN spelling he invented the name: “PALAESTINA”, a name that would stir hate. He did so for the sole purpose of effacing all traces of JUDEAN history.
THE ARAB NAME “FALASTIN”, USED BY THE ARABS FOR “PALESTINE” IS NOT AN ARABIC NAME BUT ADAPTED FROM THE LATIN “PALESTINA”
In fact the name “FALASTIN” that Arabs use today for “PALESTINE” is not an ARABIC name, but adopted and adapted from the LATIN “PALAESTINA”.
So how come ARABS adopted a western name instead of one of their own language? Because the use of the term “PALESTINIAN” for ARABS is only a modern creation without historic or ethnic background.
But with the news of a two state solution we have to ask ourselves how long have the invaders been in the land?
According to the UNITED NATIONS weird standards, any person that spent TWO YEARS (!!!) in “PALESTINE” before 1948, with or without proof, is a “PALESTINIAN”, was well as all descendants of that person.
BEFORE THEN, THE PROMISED LAND WAS UTTERLY DESOLATE.
THE “PALESTINIAN REFUGEES” AND OTHER LIES
One of the biggest lie that is being promoted by the PALESTINIANS is the “Palestinian refugees” issue: the allegedly “native” population that were “evicted” by the ISRAELIS!
Actually, in 1948 the ARAB so-called refugees were encouraged by ARAB leaders to leave ISRAEL, for they promised to purge the land of JEWS. Almost 70% of them left without leaving ever seen a single ISRAELI Soldier.
SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
The PALESTINIAN “State” is a recent society construct and created by the ARABS or in most likelihood, even the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, as a military/ political system for the sole purpose of deflecting attention away from the serious social issues plaguing their poorly run countries or to set up the world for a conflict unlike ever seen before. (IS – ISIS ?!)
