Message to Ken

New reader and emerging nuisance Ken has already broken two of the unwritten rules here at Israellycool:

1. Don’t spread anti-Israel propaganda.

2. If you are going to break rule 1, at least attempt to back up your assertions.

 

Here’s his latest comment:

I don’t love terror and I don’t hate anyone. I just have enough inteligence to know nonsense when I see it (the world is flat, the holocaust never happened, there is no palestine). Whether there has ever been an actual nation called palestine is totally irrelevant. There has been a region of the world, commonly called Palestine whose population over-whelmingly by Arabs who call themselves Palestinians for hundreds of years — and thats ALL that counts. And I’m intelligent enough to who the good guys and bad guys are in this conflict.

For someone who likes to speak of his intelligence (notice the spelling, Ken) and professes an aversion to nonsense, your comments indicate a high proportion of one and not the other.

 

So here’s a quick history lesson for you, Ken.

 

The fact that there has never been an actual nation called palestine is very relevant. In fact, in all of recorded history, only one nation has ever had a sovereign state in “Palestine” west of the Jordan, with Jerusalem as its capital. And guess which nation that is?

 

What’s more, Ken, is that the Arabs whom you refer to as “Palestinians,” actually rejected the notion of a unique Palestinian Arab identity! Instead, they saw themselves as part of “Greater Syria.” In addition, most of these Arabs actually came here because of greater economic opportunities and better living conditions resulting from Jewish immigration (a trend which still exists today).

 

In fact, if you knew your history, you would realize that the word “Palestinian” was used to describe the region’s Jewish residents before the establishment of the State of Israel. But, alas, you come in ignorance.

 

By the way, you might want to know that three quarters of historic Palestine is sovereign Arab territory. It’s called Jordan. Meanwhile, you try and deny the Jews the right to live on the remaining sliver of land.

 

So, Ken, a word of advice. Don’t sprout your ridiculous propaganda on this site. I have taken the time to study something called the facts. You, on the other hand, have to resort to myths and lies to justify the killing of innocents. Shame on you.
