Who are the Palestinian People? CAEF Bulletin April 5, 2021
Happy (belated) Easter to Our Christian Friends!
Writing under the name Judean Rose, Varda Myers Epstein, appears in the Washington Post and is a blogger at the Elder of Ziyon. Originally from Pittsburg, Epstein is the mother of 12 living in Israel. In this recent blog, titled Palestine, a Place and a People that Do Not Exist, she answers simple questions, like these:
If the Balfour Declaration of 1917 had been kept, how different would the history of Israel and Palestine have been?
Varda: Israel would still exist and Palestine would still be nonexistent.
With Israel and Palestine having elections, are either of the candidates in either country likely to work towards a peace agreement together or is that not going to happen?
Varda: Of the two, only Israel exists.
Is it likely a two-state solution will happen in the next century now that the Palestinians have committed to one? Can biden create a two state solution in four-eight years?
Varda: I assume that when you say “Palestinians” you mean the Arabs who live under the Palestinian Authority or Hamas, as there is no such place called “Palestine” and therefore there cannot exist such a nationality as “Palestinian.”
Who is the US Kidding in Its Two State Solution Narrative?
Isn’t it time that the world accepted the truth, there is no Palestinian people, there has never been a state of Palestine, the PLO and KGB concocted a story to drive the world away from supporting Israel and infested the West with Jew hatred? The entire history of this charade and the indisputable facts of Jewish history are covered in this new article written by Alex Rose and published in The Times of Israel, March 24, 2021.
Here is an excerpt from the article which is a must read for the historical facts that have been distorted, appropriated and even deleted by the Arab Palestinians in their game of deceit and destruction. Thankfully Arabs in the region are beginning to dismiss the fallacious claims of the PA, but what about Western countries? Do they accept the lies? Do they read history? Do they prefer Jew hatred over peace?
“..in 1977, a member of the PLO leadership, Zahir Muhsein, the leader of the al-Sa’iqa Organization, revealed the truth in an interview with the Dutch newspaper,Trouw:
“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a ‘Palestinian’ state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism for tactical reasons.”
Alex Rose, born in South Africa in 1935, lived in the US from 1977 to 2003 then made Aliyah. He was formerly on the Executive of Americans for a Safe Israel and a founding member of CAMERA, New York (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America and today one of the largest media monitoring organizations concerned with accuracy and balanced reporting on Israel). He presently resides with his wife in Ashkelon.
Hatred Exposed, Fed in the Classroom by the PA
Two organizations have done a huge amount of research to prove that the Palestinian Authority incites terror, teaches hatred, is antisemitic, and is grooming the next generation of Jew haters to attack Israel.
Palestinian Media Watch and the Bedein Center for Near East Policy Research have both produced voluminous amounts of evidence that the texts used in all Arab Palestinian schools are filled with inciting material and the denial of Israel’s existence as a Jewish state. Honest Reporting has been shared this information in more than one webinar and we offer it here.
CAEF supports the demand that Canada withhold funding of UNRWA until it can prove it meets the values and ethics of the UN (though that entity itself really doesn’t but there is an approved code), so Canadians must make more noise. Stand up, tell the government that funding Jew hatred is not acceptable, not consistent with Canada’s own values, not consistent with the federal government’s adoption of the IHRA definition of antisemitism and retrograde in the extreme.

Sound the Alarm as Palestinian Authority Steals Land
The conclusion of a recent report by Ad Kan, an organization of former IDF special ops agents, and reported by Tazpit Press Service, and referenced by our colleagues at Americans for a Safe Israel, reads as follows; “Israel is losing the battle for the control of Judea and Samaria to the Palestinian Authority’s grand plan to take it over illegally.”
Read more here and ask the following:
Why is the Israeli government unable to stop illegal building, illegal squatting, illegal tree planting and importantly, the funding of such illegal Arab activity by the European Union, UN, European and Arab states? Who are the biggest donors that are intent on stealing Area C, the home of the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria and designated to be part of Israel in any future negotiation? Which Jewish NGOs are working to advance this theft and to lie about Israel’s rights?
Archaic Law Holds Arabs and Jews in Time Warp
Less than a year ago, Naomi Linder Khan, Director of the International Division of Regavim spoke on a CAEF Webinar about the conundrum of land use and ownership in the areas of Judea and Samaria which are not governed by Israeli law. Regavim is an Israeli non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring legal, responsible use of Israel’s land resources. Currently they are tracking the illegal use of these lands by Arab squatters with foreign funding, and note the impotence of the Israeli courts in addressing these matters.
Here is the nub of the issue, published by the Gatestone Institute on March 11, 2021, written by Ms. Linder Khan.
“In the aftermath of the 1967 Six Day War, despite the clear moral and legal justification for full and unambiguous annexation of the territory, Israel instead chose to refrain from the natural, normal and expected steps that any and every other government takes following an undisputed outcome in a war of self-defense. The Israeli authorities instead chose to put in place "temporary arrangements" that continue to hold the area in legal limbo to this day.  At present, the State of Israel continues to enforce a combination of Jordanian and Ottoman law, rather than Israeli law -- for fear of being accused in international forums, particularly the United Nations Security Council, of ‘acts of sovereignty.’ ”
There is always plenty of chatter and fist banging if an Israeli Jew builds a home, adds a room to a home, or puts up a fence to keep marauding terrorists from attacking his home but there is universal silence as Arabs steal land.
The Palestinian Authority, the Worst Enemy of the Arab Palestinian People
An organization called AMAN, Transparency Palestine, reveals some of the worst abuses of the civilian population by the leadership under the PA and its various factions. From not holding democratic elections for over 15 years to shifting poll sites for the planned election, to corruption among the governing body, to favourtism in vaccine distribution during COVID19 and having no immunization plan, the PA hurts its own people. Where are the BDSers now?
