40 maps that explain the Middle East by Max Fisher on March 26, 2015

Maps can be a powerful tool for understanding the world, particularly the Middle East, a place in many ways shaped by changing political borders and demographics. Here are 40 maps crucial for understanding the Middle East — its history, its present, and some of the most important stories in the region today.


Note to Palestinians: Get rid of Hamas and quit lobbing missiles over into Israel.

by DAVID BROWN | | August 1, 2014

I consider all humanity my brothers and sisters and would never wish harm on any well-intentioned soul including the Palestinians but sometimes there seems there is no antidote to ignorance and intolerance. The Palestinians are poor, uneducated or rather “miseducated” and have been the willing victims of their profiteering leaders like Arafat and are easily manipulated by the Arabic Powers in the region. While Arafat bamboozled them for profit to


accumulate wealth and in return let the Arab world use them politically as human fodder against the Jews, the Palestinians continue to live in squalor with little to no aid coming from their Islamic brothers. The US gives more aid to the Palestinians than their Arab brethren.

Consider the following …

There is no occupation. Why? Because that’s not Arab land, the Arabs have not controlled the land on which Israel exists for a 1000s of years. For 400 years from the 16th century until 1920 that land was controlled by the Turks who are not Arabs… though they are Muslims. Turkey lost that, it was the Ottoman empire. They lost it because they sided with the Germans during the first World War and according to the laws of war to the victor go the spoils and the French and the English carved it up. So now they say that Israel is colonial occupier? Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, they were all created out of the Ottoman empire by the British and French imperialists.
Where does the word Palestine come from? Philistine. It’s not even an Arab word. The Romans gave this name when they destroyed the Jews. Some Jews had a very bad idea in 66 AD to go up against the Roman Empire. They were slaughtered … a million were killed, and were dispersed, and the Romans wanting to stick it to the Jews so gave their homeland to Greek Sailors which is the west bank. Judea and Sumeria…that’s the homeland of the Jews. They [The Roman Empire] gave it the name of the Jew’s enemies the Philistines. The Philistines were Greek Sailors. That’s where Palestine comes from.

So you can see that the “occupation” is a complete fiction propagated by our uneducated news media and the Arab world. What is true is that there is a Nazi crusade to eliminate all non-Muslim people from the middle east. That’s why there’s no peace in the middle east.

Some notes were taken from David Horowitz speech at USC 11/04/09.
