How could Jews have "started the whole mess from the beginning" in 1946 when they were at that point already being attacked by Arabs [not yet then known as "Palestinians"] for 26 years (post WW I, never mind before that)?
As the Haycraft Commission concluded in 1921:
|| The racial strife was begun by the Arabs
|| the Arab[s]... who were generally the aggressors, inflicted most of the casualties.
The Palin Commission noted in 1920 (as is repeated in the 1988 Hamas Covenant):
|| the Arab's tenure is by a title which he considers as good as that of any nation in the world - conquest
|| certain specified areas of the Arab world were subsequently to be acknowledged as independent. These included certain portions of Syria - Damascus, Homs, Hamah and Aleppo, but not the Litoral. Palestine was not included.
And confirming what we know:
|| For the first time after centuries of division and subjection, the Arab imagination was fired by the vision of a great Arab Empire, ruled by members of the old Arab nobility of Mecca.
Not of an "Arab Palestine".
Putting the above together:
|| in spite of the fact that nothing had been said about Palestine being included in the Hedjaz Empire and the fact that the Balfour Declaration had been published in 1917, the early impression left upon the Arabs generally was that the British were going to set up an independent Arab State which would include Palestine.
The Palin Commission also discussed what was intended by the Balfour Declaration (despite the older language of "National Home"):
|| President Wilson brushed away all doubts as to what was intended from his point of view when, in March 1919, he said to the Jewish leaders in America, "I am moreover persuaded that the allied nations, with the fullest concurrence of our own Government and people are agreed that in Palestine shall be laid the foundations of a Jewish Commonwealth." The late President Roosevelt declared that one of the Allies peace conditions should be [p10] that "Palestine must be made a Jewish State." Mr. Winston Churchill has spoken of a "Jewish State" and Mr. Bonar Law has talked in Parliament of "restoring Palestine to the Jews".
Arab anger was at being "betrayed" by the British and this unfounded fear:
|| Rightly or wrongly, they believe that room can only be made for the Jew in their country by their own subjection or eviction
Recall that the population of western "Palestine" over these last 100 years has grown 20x.
And that Israeli Arabs are the freest and least "subjected" of any Arabs in the region.
(Arguably less so than even Arabs living in western Europe.)
SamX/Covfefe> in that time period when more illegal Zionist immigrants/strangers flooded in Palestine
At the time, Palestine was the Greek/Latin-European name for the Land of Israel
Indeed, the League of Nations Palestine Mandate recognized:
|| the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country
In all of western Mandate Palestine, not a Bantustan "within" it.
|| The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions
All of "the country", not a Bantustan within it.
There are no other provisions for self-determination (which was the point of the Mandates, training wheels to independence).
(80% of the original Mandate, eastern or Trans-Jordanian Palestine, was earmarked for an exclusive Arab state. No Jews allowed.)
|| shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.
How many "illegal immigrants" Jews entered in all of the 1920s?
British police statistics show that 95% of illegal immigrants were Arabs from neighboring regions.
How come no violence was directed at them by the local Arab population?
Asserting that Jews also illegally immigrated into the USA at that time, he asserts:
SamX/Covfefe> Americans would be so mad at them if they come to America illegally!
Why then didn't Americans massacre Jews like Arabs did in Hebron, Safed and elsewhere in Mandate Palestine?
Should Americans massacre illegal immigrants today, too?
Yup. There's the reason: xenophobia, racism and hate.Ponder the perversion that SamX/Covfefe posts his propaganda nonsense not because he wants to see the end of this violence, but because he wants to justify and rationalize his side's violence... and have more of it.
Sure enough, he proves me right. He has no interest in peace
, his purpose is to infect others with his hate.
