SOME POPULATION FIGURES FOR MANDATE PALESTINE.

In 1880 there were24,000Jews living among450,000Palestinians.
In 1914 there were56,000Jews living among715,000Palestinians.
In 1922 there were83,000Jews living among663,000Palestinians.
In 1936 there were385,400Jews living among983,200Palestinians.
In 1940 there were467,000Jews living among1,050,000Palestinians.
In 1946 there were600,000Jews living among1,300,000Palestinians.

THINGS TO NOTE:

In 1880 Jews were ONLY 5.3% of the total population of Palestine (and had been this percentage of the population (or less) for more than a thousand years). In 1946 the Jewish population was almost entirely comprised of recent immigrants (people who had been in the country less than twenty years).

This group of recent immigrants were publicly claiming that the (entire) land belonged to them (apparently they believed that some god had given it to them). These wild claims made non-Jews who lived in Palestine (we will call them Palestinians) very nervous, especially since the Jews claimed to want an ethnically pure state.

These non-Jews were (very) afraid that they would be kicked out of any new entity that claimed to be a Jewish state.

SOME POPULATION FIGURES FOR ISRAEL AFTER THE GREAT JEWISH LAND GRAB OF 1948.

In 1948 there were155,000Palestinians living among716,700Jews.
In 1951 there were173,000Palestinians living among1,577,000Jews.

THINGS TO NOTE:

The fears of the non-Jews who lived in Palestine were well founded.

That in 1948 all but 155,000 of the 873,600 Palestinians living in the area that became Israel, were ethnically cleansed from the newly formed Jewish state.

This ethnic cleansing was extremely brutal (and has been well documented).

Quoting Naeim Giladi.

And I began to find out about the barbaric methods used to rid the fledgling state of as many Palestinians as possible. The world recoils today at the thought of bacteriological warfare, but Israel was probably the first to actually use it in the Middle East. In the 1948 war, Jewish forces would empty Arab villages of their populations, often by threats, sometimes by just gunning down a half-dozen unarmed Arabs as examples to the rest. To make sure the Arabs couldn't return to make a fresh life for themselves in these villages, the Israelis put typhus and dysentery bacteria into the water wells.

BEFORE 1948 THERE WERE 475 PALESTINIAN TOWNS AND VILLAGES IN PALESTINE.

SINCE THEN 385 OF THESE HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY ERASED (USUALLY BULLDOZED) FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH, BY THE JEWS.

The houses, and property that was destroyed had been owned by those Palestinians killed, or forced to flee, by the barbaric tactics of the Jews. These destroyed towns and villages were rebuilt (with new Jewish names) as Jewish only towns and villages. The Palestinians who had been forced to leave were not allowed back. They were not even allowed back into the Jewish state, let alone back to their (now destroyed) towns and villages.

Many Christians support Israel, but they should realize that before the establishment of the Jewish state, Palestine was about 12% Christian (Israel is now about 2% Christian). They should also remember that the Palestinian Christians had lived in the area since about 300 AD (when Palestine was predominantly Christian) and that they shared the land with Moslems from about 700 AD to the creation of Israel, when they were kicked out along with the Moslems (by the Jews).

Listing and Map of Towns and Villages Ethnically Cleansed/Destroyed by the Jews.

And now lets examine the claim that the Jews bought all the land and thus "now owned it" and were thus "entitled" to ethnically cleanse Palestine.

IN 1880 THE JEWS OWNED APPROXIMATELY 0% OF THE LAND.
IN 1946 THE JEWS OWNED APPROXIMATELY 6% OF THE LAND.

And even this 6% (more precisely 6.66%) of the land is contested. Much of the land was bought from people who had registered the land in their name, but who did not in any sense own the land, but that is another story. The point is that owning 6% of the land (about 20% of the farmland) does not entitle a minority to claim the entire land (even if they claim that some god gave it to them).

In all this the Jews just acted as a bunch of thieves and criminals.

List your source material for the above information. Only with proper citations that can be corroborated and screened for prejudice can we be prove fascist trolls like L.B. wrong. I tried the UN link but it didn't lead to what I was hoping for.

"Only with proper citations that can be corroborated and screened for prejudice can we be prove fascist trolls like L.B. wrong. I tried the UN link but it didn't lead to what I was hoping for."

the population numbers are from a table halfway-down the UNISPAL website link--

the only difference is, some of the "Christian" numbers have been added to the "Moslem" numbers, for a totals column (as listed above) called "Arabs".

every other link in the posting above seems to work fine.

RE: 'Leftist Bitch'--
doesn't need to be "proved wrong". already has, on many other Portland Indymedia comments whether or not Palestine-related.

'Leftist Bitch' is a paid-by-typed-line, hack, Disinformationalist troll.

Hey, LB! 16.Dec.2002 15:56

GRINGO STARS gringo_stars@attbi.com

Link up and tell me any of this info is wrong ok? It has links everywhere to corroborate itself. Then you can go right back to sputtering and shouting "Jew-hater!" at anyone who dares call Israel on the war crimes it has committed:

Hey, LB!
Hey, LB!

Let's get one thing straight... 16.Dec.2002 18:49

...albeit the few true anti-semites you're going to find anywhere, criticism of Israeli does not constitute automatic anti-semitism. While it may be understandable that jews might want to defend Israel, and vehement criticism of this state may leave a bad taste of anti-semitism in one's mouth; Israel policy dictates that one must censure the actions of those who have blatantly violated human rights. This is no different than criticizing US policy - it does not make you anti-American. I have criticized the actions of my people and will continue to be honest about the facts. Let's not be blinded, there are repressive regimes all over and Israel is no exception. It is so sad that jews are oftentimes the unfortunate victims of derision because of the actions of one country that is no reflection of its people.

LB chock full of schitt once again 17.Dec.2002 02:07

GRINGO STARS gringo_stars@attbi.com

I don't deny the Holocaust, genius.

Is all you can do to respond to this is LIE?
Yep, I thought so.

Go read it and weep, LB;


LB has no proof YET AGAIN on his claims 17.Dec.2002 13:46

GRINGO STARS gringo_stars@attbi.com

I am anti-Zionist to the hilt. I disagree with their supremecist dogma. But I love Jews, no problem there. I am certain there was a Holocaust, and see no denial of the Holocaust ANYWHERE on the site I linked to. All LB can do, yet again, is to sputter some more and call more names. When asked to point out WHERE, LB is silent on the question.

A common tactic for the Zionist apologist disinformationalist is to attack anyone who is against Israel's government's murderous actions. It's all LB can do, really, since the facts will only hurt LB's cause.

So go ahead; your turn to call names some more...
(I understand - It's all you can do, LB)

The Dead Palestinian 17.Dec.2002 14:48

Anti-Fa

The dead palestinian in the picture was an al-aqsa brigade gunman, as reported by Ha'aretz and Palestinian sources.

That, however, is not the point. I don't know how anyone with an ounce of humanity could not find this picture at least disturbing.

Additionally: not all the gunmen are terrorists, by any definition of the word - the Palestinians have the legitimate right to resist the Israeli occupation army. The Israeli army and security forces constitute legitimate targets.

that's no denial site, LB 17.Dec.2002 16:58

GRINGO STARS gringo_stars@attbi.com

That particular article you mention is one that is baffled at the stranglehold that Zionist apologists have over governments worldwide - so much so that it is ILLEGAL to question the Holocaust. Obviously the Holocaust happened - that is not the issue. But going so far as to make it ILLEGAL to question something at all? That's fucked up. I suggest you read the article again. Then come back and call me more baseless names like usual, genius. And read this, while you're at it:
