Democratic Congress members led by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., introduced a resolution last week calling for U.S. recognition of the “Nakba,” a term meaning “catastrophe” that is typically used by “palestinian” Arabs to refer to the establishment of the state of Israel.
The resolution was submitted a week and a half after Israeli Independence Day, a day the Arab Muslim anti-Israel world call the Nakba day.
The resolution calls for the U.S. to “commemorate the Nakba through official recognition and remembrance,” while claiming that this “refers not only to a historical event but to an ongoing process of Israel’s expropriation of Palestinian land and its dispossession of the Palestinian people that continues to this day.”
“The Palestinian people since the 48 Nakba have been living under oppression and violent racism. Silence + blank checks enables more death and violence,” Tlaib tweeted, referencing the year Israel was created and recognized via a U.N. resolution, and U.S. financial support for the Jewish state.
The sad irony is that the catastrophe that befell Arabs upon Israel’s establishment was a direct result of the Arab Muslim world launching a war against Israel in 1948 to massacre all the Jews and throw us into the sea. The Arab Muslim warring nations told the Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to clean out the area for them to massacre the Jews. The fledgling country of Israel miraculously won that war, without any international support, and the Arabs who ran away from their homes lost their homes. The “nakba” is the day they commemorate their failure to annihalate the Jews, and they want world recognition for their failure to successfully kill us.
The other interesting fact is that there were no “palestinian” nation that fought in that war. Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and other Arab Muslim countries attacked Israel. There was no Arab people called “palestinians” back in 1948. It was the Jews who were called palestinians, who held British Mandate of Palestine passports!
At the same time, the Arab Muslim world persecuted and exited 800,000 Jewish residents. Yet, Israel accepted them all as Israeli citizens, while the 700,000 Arab Muslims who lost their homes because they listened to the Arab Muslim countries to leave their homes, were treated as refugees living in refugee camps in those same Arab Muslim countries, still today, 74 years later. They have not been living under “oppression and racism” from Israel, but from their own Arab Muslim brethren including the Palestinian Authority and Hamas!
Hence, the whole nakba narrative is a lie that US politicians must call out and squash.
Israel is the only trusted ally of the United States in the Middle East. We are the only country that stands up for freedom, euqality and religious freedom as well. US politicians must stand up to the lies of the fake-cause called “palestine” and stand by her ally, Israel. A strong USA means having a strong Jewish state of Israel.
