Israel is "a state that was created from tales and fabrications, which is unworthy of living and which will necessarily die” says PA
Excerpt of a column by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily
Headline: “Is there no avoiding the explosion?”
“At the end of World War I, and more precisely in 1917, it was clear that the Ottoman Empire would give up its place to others, new colonialists…
That same year the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) was issued, the filthiest colonialist promise in human history, because it gave a completely illegal promise in order to steal the Palestinian people’s homeland, Palestine. This was in order to establish a state on [Palestine’s land], which constitutes a model of foolishness, whose name is Israel…
Despite all the false external characteristics of strength, it is a state that was created from tales and fabrications,which is unworthy of living and which will necessarily die.”
The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that "His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate "responsible for putting into effect the declaration," which led to the UN vote in favor of partitioning Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state in 1947. In response, Britain ended its mandate on May 15, 1948, and the Palestinian Jews, who accepted the Partition Plan, declared the independent State of Israel. The Palestinian Arabs rejected the plan and together with 7 Arab states attacked Israel, in what is now known as Israel's War of Independence.
