Ethnic Make Up of 'Palestinians'

Extracts from: " Bosnia - Motherland of "Palestinians" by Manfred R. Lehmann and "Palestinians 'Peoplehood' Based on a Big Lie" by Eli E. Hertz.

Arab Palestinian nationality (which was officially forged in 1964) is an entity defined by its opposition to Zionism (the Jewish national liberation movement) and not by its national aspirations.

Like a mantra, Arabs repeatedly claim that the Palestinians are a native people of Israel([search]). The concept of a 'Stateless Palestinian people' is not based on fact. It is a fabrication! The following is a chronology of an ethnic make up of so-called Palestinians and their origine.

During Ottoman Empire.

Until the Jews began returning to the Land of Israel in increasing numbers from the late 19th century, the area called Palestine([search]) was a God-forsaken backwash that was controlled by the Ottoman Empire .

1880-84 Turkish government settles Muslim Circassian refugees in the Golan to ward off Bedouin robbers. Other settlers in the area include Sudanese, Algerians, Kurds...

In 1878, an Ottoman law granted lands in Palestine to the Moslem refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Carmel region, in the Galilee and in the Plain of Sharon and in Caesarea. The refugees were further attracted by l2-year tax exemptions and exemption from military service.

The same colonization policy was also directed toward Moslem refugees from Russia - particularly from the Crimea and the Caucasus. They were Circassians, Cherkesians and Turkmenians - leading to their settling in Abu Gosh, near Jerusalem and in the Golan Heights . Refugees from Algeria and Egypt were also settled in Jaffa, Gaza([search]) , Jericho and the Golan.

British Mandate: 1917-1947

1923 Having discovered the Golan lacks oil but that the Mosul area in northern Syria is rich in oil, the British cede the Golan to France in exchange for Mosul . At the same time the Trans-Jordan was ceded from Palestinian mandate as well and Egypt was given control of Sinai, British and France gain control of Suetz canal. (82% of Jewish land was sacrificed in the process!)

In 1934 alone, 30,000 Syrian Arabs from the Hauran moved across the northern frontier into Mandate Palestine, attracted by work in and around the newly built British port and the construction of other infrastructure projects. They even dubbed Haifa Um el-Amal ('the city of work').

The Ottoman Turks' census (1882) recorded only 141,000 Muslims in the Palestinian. The British census in 1922 reported 650,000 Muslims.


Re: Ethnic Make Up of 'Palestinians'

Ethnic make up of "Brittish".

Celts, Angles, Saxons, Jutes (Danes), Normans, Romans, and yet Zionists don't have any birthright of murderous theft of Brittish lands. "Brittish"? Isn't Brittania the name Romans gave to the place???

And how about the ZIonists. Ashkinazim (Khazars who converted to Judaism in 850 AD), and some Shepardic Jews of the middle east and north Africa who's ONLY claim to the land is that Hebrews were one of MANY foreign invadors to occupy the land.

what a shocker (NOT)that the locals of Palestine([search]) would form a single identity when faced with murderous thieving Zionist crusaders stealing their homeland. It is also not such a shocker that Zionists and their enablers would try to marginalize the Palestinian people's basic human right NOT to be destroyed by Zionist invadors.

Ottoman turks census recorded the lowest population in palestine was in 1785 with 350000 locals, a popualtion density greater than ALL newly created US states

Re: Ethnic Make Up of 'Palestinians'

If Americans want to let Cubans move to the US and be a part of American society, then that is THEIR business, and NOONE else's business. If Americans do not want to let Mexicans move to the US and be a part of American society, then that too is THEIR business, and NOONE else's.

And who's business is it if Palestinians want to let Syrians move to Palestine([search]) and become a part of Palestinian society??? According to Eli, it is the Zionist's business, as they try to present it as giving Zionists a birthright to steal Palestinian lands and to MURDER the Palestinians who dare to resist the Zionist's theft of Palestinian lands.

Zionists sure are full of it.

Myths of the Indigeneous 'Palestinians'

Among the great many myths of the "Palestinians' is that they are somehow indigeneous to Israel([search]). Sometimes thay claim to be "Canaanites" etc, although any thinking person would immediately uderstand that history did not miss mentioning only this one people for millenia. In reality, todays "Palestinians' are mostly descended from Arabs from neighboring Arab countries that migrated to pre-state Israel duing historic times. They would just prefer that you didn't know that though.

By definition,

anyone who lives in the geographic region of Palestine([search]) is a Palestinian. That's what the word means.

This includes Jews, Arabs, Armenians, Circassians, Druze, etc.

Zionism is the racist belief that of all these peoples, Jews have the right to rule the others.

Thats not what the UN says

The UN says a "Palestinian" is a non-Jew that resided in the British Mandate of Palestine([search]) between 1946-1948. Two whole years. Alot were economic immigrants from ther Arab countries asnd the UNRWA aid seemed appealing. "Indigeneous people? Cut the crap!

"The UN says"

Zionists only care what the UN says when it suits their agenda.


Varied Origins of "Palestinian" Immigration

For example, as to the "Palestinians" of Caesarea, Wikiedia says;

Early history

The modern settlement of Caesarea began in 1884, when Muslims from Bosnia built a small fishing village on the ruins of the Crusader fortress on the coast.[1] Between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, Baron Edmond James de Rothschild purchased much of the land around Caesarea.[2]

"Indigeneous"? Just part of Moslem Imperialism and colonialism in others lands.
