Has been for many years now, and we need another one like I need another hole in my fucking head.
Geert Wilders Correctly Notes That Jordan Is ‘Palestine’
Hallelujah! There is a politician who actually knows history! Geert Wilders, who just won an election victory in the Netherlands, caused uproar after stating the simple historical fact that Jordan is the Arab nation that “Palestinians” keep claiming they don’t have.
On November 25, Wilders, whose party came out on top in this past week’s Dutch election, posted an article on Twitter/X Nov. 25 with the comment “Jordan is Palestine!” and the title “Arab states condemn Wilders for push to relocate Palestinians to Jordan.”
PJ Media’s Robert Spencer previously explained how “Palestine” was used as a regional term, never as the title of an ancient or medieval nation. Then in the 1920s, the League of Nations granted administrative powers to the British for a part of the collapsed Ottoman Empire, with instructions to create a “national home for the Jewish people.” Sadly, the British chose to favor Arabs over Jews.
Britain immediately turned over 77% of the Mandate to the Arabs to create Jordan but remained generally committed to establishing a Jewish national home in the remainder. This was known as the Mandate for Palestine. Sometimes Leftists point to it as the Palestinian state that supposedly predated Israel, but this claim relies on the ignorance of the fact that this British territory had been explicitly set aside for Jewish settlement; nine years before the founding of the modern state of Israel, a 1939 flag of “Palestine” sports a star of David.
When the State of Israel was founded in 1948, it immediately had to fight a war for its survival against the surrounding Arab nations that had vowed to destroy it. Then there was finally an occupation — in fact, two: Egypt occupied Gaza and Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria (which it renamed the West Bank)… [A] Palestinian state, if it is ever created, would be the first-ever such entity in the history of the world. There is actually no Israeli occupation at all.
The so-called “Palestinians” are actually a conglomeration of other Arab peoples, invented as a separate “people” in the 1960s. Ancient Israel was a Jewish nation over a thousand years before Islam was invented. Islamic scriptures endorse killing non-Muslims, and as heinous as the Oct. 7 attack was, it is sadly the latest egregious example of decades of Arab jihad on Israel.
Wilders later retweeted an alleged Hamas statement responding to him, mocking Hamas as clowns. “Hamas complaining about international law,” he tweeted. Employing its usual tactic of labeling its opponents with a name that accurately describes itself, the terrorist group Hamas — with its avowed goal being Jewish genocide — actually called Israelis and their allies Nazis. “We strongly condemn the statement of the Dutch extremist Wilders, who calls for the displacement of our people to Jordan, which calls for widespread international condemnation,” the statement began. These are terrorists, who mutilated and burned alive children, calling Wilders an extremist!
I’d say the main conclusions to take from Hamas’s statement are that anyone calling Wilders a “racist extremist” is agreeing with terrorist propaganda, and that if you are infuriating one of the most evil and perverted terrorist organizations in the world, as Wilders did, you are probably doing something right.
A-yup. Myself, I’d also add that if your dislike for ((((JooJooJooJOOOOOOZ!!!)))) leads you to agree with absolutely anything the jihadists are saying or doing, you very much need to rethink a few things—your reflexive prejudice has led you badly astray, as it tends to do.
