Why Olmert suddenly wants to "Withdraw" from Golan

1. Must read - new in-depth research paper from
The Seditious Israeli Academic Radical "City Planners for Palestine" and


2. There is a truism in Israel that, every time a political leader faces
prosecution for personal corruption, he starts giving away Israeli lands.
The reason is that the Left controls most of the media and the judiciary
and the Prosecutor's offices. So when a politician in Israel is playing
ball with the Left, the Left leaves him alone. Polls are showing that
more Israelis oppose giving up the Golan than the number who oppose giving
up Jerusalem.

Sp Ehud Olmert is now "negotiating" turning the Golan Heights over to
Syria's fascists.

Any questions?

Arabs caused the refugee problem

PA daily: Arabs left homes on their own to facilitate
destruction of Israel -- and thus became refugees
by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook

The Arabs who became refugees in 1948 were not expelled by Israel but left
on their own to facilitate the destruction of Israel, according to a
senior Palestinian journalist writing in a Palestinian daily. This plan to
leave Israel was initiated by the Arab states fighting Israel, who
promised the people they would be able to return to their homes in a few
days once Israel was defeated. The article in Al-Ayyam concludes that
these Arab states are responsible for the Arab refugee problem.

A backbone of Palestinian English-language propaganda is the myth that
Israel expelled hundreds of thousands of Arabs from Israel and created
Arab refugees. But in recent years, PMW has documented an increasing
willingness among Palestinians to openly blame the Arab states and not

Following are five such statements of blame, starting with this most
recent article and including testimony from refugees themselves and
corroboration by Palestinian leaders. Clearly, there is a growing
Palestinian willingness to blame the Arab leaders, which corroborates
Israel's historical record.

1. Jawad Al Bashiti, Palestinian journalist in Jordan, writing in
Al-Ayyam, May 13, 2008

"Remind me of one real cause from all the factors that have caused the
"Palestinian Catastrophe" [the establishment of Israel and the creation of
refugee problem], and I will remind you that it still exists... The
reasons for the Palestinian Catastrophe are the same reasons that have
produced and are still producing our Catastrophes today.
During the Little Catastrophe, meaning the Palestinian Catastrophe the
following happened: the first war between Arabs and Israel had started and
the "Arab Salvation Army" came and told the Palestinians: 'We have come to
you in order to liquidate the Zionists and their state. Leave your houses
and villages, you will return to them in a few days safely. Leave them so
we can fulfill our mission (destroy Israel) in the best way and so you
won't be hurt.' It became clear already then, when it was too late, that
the support of the Arab states (against Israel) was a big illusion. Arabs
fought as if intending to cause the "Palestinian Catastrophe". [Al-Ayyam,
May 13 2008]

2. Mahmoud Al-Habbash, Palestinian Journalist in PA official daily,
Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, December 13, 2006

"...The leaders and the elites promised us at the beginning of the
"Catastrophe" in 1948, that the duration of the exile will not be long,
and that it will not last more than a few days or months, and afterwards
the refugees will return to their homes, which most of them did not leave
only until they put their trust in those "Arkuvian" promises made by the
leaders and the political elites. Afterwards, days passed, months, years
and decades, and the promises were lost with the strain of the succession
of events..." [Term "Arkuvian," is after Arkuv - a figure from Arab
tradition - who was known for breaking his promises and for his lies."] "
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, December 13, 2006]

3. Asmaa Jabir Balasimah, Woman who fled Israel in 1948, Al-Ayyam, May 16,

"We heard sounds of explosions and of gunfire at the beginning of the
summer in the year of the "Catastrophe" [1948]. They told us: The Jews
attacked our region and it is better to evacuate the village and return,
after the battle is over. And indeed there were among us [who fled Israel]
those who left a fire burning under the pot, those who left their flock
[of sheep] and those who left their money and gold behind, based on the
assumption that we would return after a few hours."
[Al-Ayyam, May 16, 2006]

4. Son of man who fled in 1948, PA TV 1999

An Arab viewer called Palestinian Authority TV and quoted his father,
saying that in 1948 the Arab District Officer ordered all Arabs to leave
Palestine or be labeled traitors. In response, Arab MK Ibrahim Sarsur,
then Head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, cursed those leaders, thus
acknowledging Israel's historical record.

"Mr. Ibrahim [Sarsur]. I address you as a Muslim. My father and
grandfather told me that during the "Catastrophe" [in 1948], our district
officer issued an order that whoever stays in Palestine and in Majdel
[near Ashkelon - Southern Israel] is a traitor, he is a traitor."

Response from Ibrahim Sarsur, now MK, then Head of the Islamic Movement in
"The one who gave the order forbidding them to stay there bears guilt for
this, in this life and the Afterlife throughout history until Resurrection

5. Fuad Abu Higla, senior Palestinian, Al-Hayat Al-Jadidah, March 19, 2001

Fuad Abu Higla, then a regular columnist in the official PA daily Al Hayat
Al Jadida, wrote an article before an Arab Summit, which criticized the
Arab leaders. One of the failures he cited, in the name of a prisoner, was
that an earlier generation of Arab leaders "forced" them to leave Israel
in 1948, again placing the blame for the flight on the Arab leaders.

"I have received a letter from a prisoner in Acre prison, to the Arab
To the [Arab and Muslim] Kings and Presidents, poverty is killing us, the
symptoms are exhausting us and the souls are leaving our body, yet you are
still searching for the way to provide aid, like one who is looking for a
needle in a haystack or like the armies of your predecessors in the year
of 1948, who forced us to leave [Israel], on the pretext of clearing the
battlefields of civilians...
So what will your summit do now?"
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 19, 2001]

It is clear from these statements that there is general acknowledgement
among Palestinians that Arab leaders bear responsibility for the mass
flight of Arabs from Israel in 1948, and were the cause of the "refugee"
problem. Furthermore, the fact that this information has been validated by
public figures and refugees in the Palestinian Authority media itself
confirms that this responsibility is well-known - even though for
propaganda purposes its leaders continue to blame Israel publicly for "the
