Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 per cent of Middle East lands. Israel represents one tenth of one per cent of the landmass. But that is too much for the Arabs. They want it all.
And that is ultimately what the fighting around Israel is all about. No matter how many concessions the Israelis make , it will never be enough.
Let us see what other Arabs have stated:
Ibn Taymiyyah ( 1263 - 1328 ) one of Islam’s foremost scholars: ‘In Jerusalem there is not a place one calls sacred and the same holds true for the tombs of Hebron‘
Yousef Diya al - Khalidi , Ottoman Mayor of Jerusalem, 1899: ‘Zionism is natural, beautiful and just ... who could contest the rights of the Jews in Palestine? My God, historically it is your country‘. ‘There is no such thing as Palestine in history - absolutely not."
Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, Syrian Arab Diplomatic Leader to the British Peel Commission 1937: ‘There is no such country as Palestine. Palestine is a term the Zionists invented. There is no Palestine in the Bible.‘
Professor Philip Hitti, the most learned Arab scholar on Islamic affairs of the 20th century, 1946: ‘There’s no such country as Palestine - absolutely not and never was‘
Ahmed Shukan - Saudi Diplomat at the U.N. 1956: ‘It is common knowledge that Palestine is part of Syria’
Hafez Assad, Syrian Dictator to PLO leader Yassir Arafat: ‘You do not represent Palestine - there is no such thing as a Palestinian people’
Zuhair Mushin, military commander of the PLO and member of the PLO Executive Council: ‘There are no differences between Jordanians, Syrians, Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity ...yes the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian State is just a tool in the battle against Israel.’
Walid Shoebat - former PLO terrorist: ‘Why on June 4th 1967 I was Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian? We did not mind Jordanian rule - the teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum but we considered ourselves Jordanian until the Jews returned to their holy Jerusalem. The star was removed from the Palestinian flag and now we had a Palestinian flag. When I realized the lies and myths I was taught it is my duty as a righteous person to speak out.‘
