Levin: ‘No Such Thing As A Palestinian’

There’s no such thing as a Palestinian,” said Mark Levin on Monday, while broadcasting from Israel. “They’re Arabs. I’m sorry, they can call themselves Palestinians, or Palestinian Arabs – I don’t even know what that means.”

Levin rejected the narrative in which “Palestinians” are framed as a distinct group of people constituting a nation; a narrative upon which the “Palestinian” claim to self-determination and independence via statehood is predicated.

Levin noted that contemporary Arab states are not grounded in preexisting national identities, but on borders drawn by the victorious European powers following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War.

European states, conversely, typically enclose territories populated by groups that compose unique nations. European nations have histories, languages, cultures, religious traditions, and other features of nationhood that are distinguishable between themselves, unlike contemporary Arab states.

The meaningful social fault lines of the Middle East and North Africa are typically not congruent with the region’s states, with few exceptions such as Iran. Various minority nations across the region do not have independence via statehood, such as Kurds, Copts, Bahais, or Assyrians. CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post do not agitate for the independent statehood of any of the aforementioned groups.

Newt Gingrich expressed a similar statement in 2011 in an interview with The Jewish Channel, describing the “Palestinians” as “an invented people.”

    It’s true; “Palestinians” is a made-up name for the displaced from other Arab Muslim nations around Israel who were outcasts from their own nations and unwanted still, except for their “usefulness” against Israel.

    Right, there has never been a civilization or a nation referred to as “Palestine” and the very notion of a “Palestinian Arab nation” having ancient attachments to the Holy Land going back to time immemorial is one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetrated upon the world! There is not, nor has there ever been, a distinct “Palestinian” culture or language. Further, there has never been a Palestinian state governed BY Arab Palestinians in history, nor was there ever a serious Arab-Palestinian national movement until 1964… three years BEFORE the Arabs of “Palestine” lost the West Bank [Judea and Samaria] and Gaza as a result of the 1967 Six-Day War (which the Arabs started). Even the so-called leader of the “Palestinian” people, Yasser Arafat, was EGYPTIAN! In short, the so-called Arab “Palestinians” are a manufactured people…a people with no history and no authenticity… whose sole purpose for existence is to destroy the Jewish State!

    Palestinians claim the land of Palestine as part of their land from the time of the Assyrian’s control.

    They think they have the right to the land but it has been earmarked by God and it belongs to Israel.

    There will never be peace in Israel until the return of Jesus Christ.

    PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein said this in 1977:

    The Palestinian people do 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.

    I have been saying this for over 10 years, its about time others saw the truth in this. The group the lefties call “Palestinians” are nothing more then BEDOUINS!! This is validated in every stinking middle eastern library! Yet when I was saying this way back when Bush 1 was President, I got called every name in the book, had my life threatened and was even hacked with a warning never to do this again.

    Sorry but telling the truth is not something that I will stop doing just because it pis$$es someone off.

    I’ve been asking this question for decades, Where the hell is Palistine????

  • Thomas Skidmore

    I have another term for Palestinians: vermin!

  • SandraJ

    And the Palestinian is not mentioned in scripture either. The word is an abomination to God.

    They are nomads that no other Arab country wants. Palestine has not been a country for eons and they have never been called Palestinians. Israel could attempt to force them into Jordan or Egypt, but they will be refused, so they’re stuck with them.
