- There was a country called Palestine that the Zionists replaced with Israel.
- Israel's rule in land liberated in its defensive war in 1967 is "occupation."
|Note the red Ottoman empire, the fact that today's borders and countries aren't even hinted at in this map. That is why there is so much instability among the Arab countries. They have no real history as independent countries.|
The truth is very simple! There never was a country called Palestine, and there is no history of a people or country by that name either.
The lower map shows the tiny Israel in yellow just before the 1967 Six Days War. The borders were indefensible and it's a total miracle that Israel survived the coordinated attack to push it into the sea by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. They had planned our destruction and we had no ally other than G-d. Everyone stood by watching, expecting us to be a footnote in history.
Thank G-d a miracle happened and the IDF with the help of G-d defeated those three countries.
In the history of the world, it is always accepted that a victorious army/country is the new ruler of any land achieved in a victorious war of defense. The only time this rule has been ignored has been in the case of Israel defeating its enemies in 1967. We should be sovereign; we are not occupiers!!!
