A Pro-Israel, Zionist Palestinian Organization?
Elias Issa, from Judea-Samaria (referred to in the media as the "West Bank") has stated on his website the Palestinian Zionist Organization, that Palestinian leaders and spokesmen have lied to the world about the causes of Arab terrorism; that their jihad against Israel has nothing to do with the Israeli 'occupation' of Judea and Samaria, and that the Palestinian Authority as well as Hamas have no interest whatsoever in creating a Palestinian state, rather their true goal is the destruction of Israel.
Israel National News wrote about this new organization, founded in honor of Israel's 62nd Independence Day:
The latest Arab to show his public support for Israel is Elias Issa, who describes himself as a “European West-Bank Palestinian.” He writes that he chose a unique approach by which to celebrate Israel’s 62nd birthday – namely, by launching the Palestinian Zionist Organization. He says is goal is “to show the world why it must support the Jewish people and to [distance itself] from the terrorist Palestinian government.”On the website of the Palestinian Zionist Organization the history of the Jews' connection to the land of Israel is outlined, and Mr. Issa is forthright when he states:
Statements on the new website include warnings that a new PA state, if it were to arise, would “become the most terrorist state in the world… The Palestinians don't believe in a two-state solution; they only believe in a one-state solution - a land called Palestine [which] does not involve any Jewishness."
Issa, who now lives in the United States, explains that the international community is blind “to what's truly going on in this Middle East conflict. [I hope] to make a difference by shining a different kind of light on the Palestinian-Israeli situation.”
It is unusual, to say the least, to hear an Arab stating that Israel is G-d given to the Jewish people, and that she should not relinquish any of her land "for peace", which he states outright is an illusion and a great Palestinian lie believed by the world.•Israel is the promised land for the Jewish people, not for the Palestinians! It’s a sin to give away G-ds Holy land.
The world refuses to learn from history that all the prior concessions made by Israel were met with terrorism, not peace. It is compelling to read what Mr. Issa says when he writes;
Being a Palestinian myself, I advise Israel NOT TO GIVE the Arabs even one inch of land! The radical Palestinians and the other Arabic nations will only use this land to destroy Israel and to murder as many Jewish people as possible. THIS is was history teaches us! I am absolutely pro peace, but you can't make peace with people who do not want peace.And while the entire world, including the left wing in Israel condemns the 'expansion of territory' and the 'settlers' as being the heart of the Israel/Palestinian conflict and creates a major crisis over 'construction' and 'illegal outposts', Mr. Issa suggests to the settlers what he thinks they should do:
The government in Israel and Jews world-wide need to muster the courage of this man to speak the truth and to stand their ground in what is factually and morally right:A word for the settlersStay where you are and keep the Land that G-d promised you, you have the right to be on this land and you deserve all the land which is promised in the Tanakh to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So this includes parts of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt! If they ever attack you....YOU HAVE TO TAKE BACK THE LAND WHICH BELONGS TO YOU! I am not pro war, but this is the risk that these nations are taking when they attack you. So you have the right to take that land from where they attack and to keep it as a security zone.
1) Keep all the 'territories' which were captured in the six-day war in June 1967 and formerly annex them as part of the State of Israel, and
2) Officially declare Jerusalem the undivided (it is still considered an 'international' city) Jewish capital of Israel.
3) The state of Israel should sanction construction and encourage people to settle the hilltops now considered "illegal outposts" to create a strong Jewish demographic presence.
And if president Obama here in the United States really wants a just peace between the Arabs and their Jewish neighbor--key word here being "just"--he for starters should show solidarity with strengthening Israel's hand by two executive acts:
1) Freeing Jonathan Pollard who has been given a life sentence, incompatible with his crime, and in violation of his plea agreement; and finallyThe Arab mentality, as past history has shown, responds to a stand of strength, not to concessions from weakness.
2) Moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem, per the Jerusalem Embassy Act enacted by the 104th Congress on October 23rd, 1995.
