What is Zionism? What has been the effect of Zionism on the Palestinian people and the Middle East? Most in the West believe that Zionism is the pursuit of Jews to their rightful homeland in Palestine as promised to them by God in the Bible. Few know that Zionism is a political movement founded by and atheist Jew, Theodore Herzl, in 1896 to cause European Jews to migrate to Palestine. Theodore Herzl had no religious leanings but used religion to accomplish his goals. Few also know that European Jews are Caucasians who converted to Judaism with no genetic or blood ties to the original 12 tribes of Israel. They are Khazars and it is as equally ridiculous to claim them as Jews with rights to Palestine as it is to claim converted Chinese Muslims as Arabs with rights to Makkah. Few also know that Jews have lived for many centuries in the Middle East, in complete peace and friendliness with their Arab neighbours. This section will provide informative articles exposing Zionism.
On May 7, 2013, Rita Rubin reported in the Jewish daily Forward about a young Jewish DNA expert who dares to attack the dogma that Jews are a race and have descended from Semitic ancestors originating in what is today’s Israel.
In an article with the title “‘Jews a Race’ Genetic Theory Comes Under Fierce Attack by DNA Expert” Rubin reports about the controversy which erupted after the young Jewish geneticist Eran Elhaikon’s had published a paper in which he claims to have proven that most Jews are actually descendants from a medieval Turkic tribe called the Khazars.
Israeli Scientist Challenges Hypothesis of Middle East Origins
But that’s how Johns Hopkins University post-doctoral researcher Eran Elhaik describes a group of widely respected geneticists, including Harry Ostrer, professor of pathology and genetics at Yeshiva University’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine and author of the 2012 book “Legacy: A Genetic History of the Jewish People.”
The document below is a powerful debunking of Israeli lies about the history of Palestine done by Israeli historian Dr. Ilan Pappe. Dr. Pappé is the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, as well as over a dozen other books on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. An Israeli historian, Dr. Pappé is currently a professor at the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter in the UK. He is also director of the university's European Center for Palestine Studies and co-director of the Exeter Center for Ethno-Political Studies. He obtained his PhD in history from the University of Oxford.
The document delves into the issue of false paradigms concerning Palestinians and the Israel-Palestine conflict.
The 10 mythologies explored in Dr. Pappé's article are as follows:
Myth 1: Palestine was a land without people, waiting for the people without land
Myth 2: Palestinians resorted to acts of terror against Jewish settlers prior to the creation of Israel
Myth 3: Myths around the creation of Israel:
- Myth 3a: That Palestinians are to be blamed for what happened to them because they rejected the UN Partition Plan of 1947
- Myth 3b: That Palestinians left their homes voluntarily or as a result of a call by their leaders
- Myth 3c: That Israel was a David fighting an Arab Goliath
- Myth 3d: That after its war of creation, Israel extended its hand for peace to its Palestinian and Arab neighbors
Myth 4: Israel was a benign democratic state prior to 1967
Myth 5: The Palestinian struggle has no aim other than terror
Myth 6: Israel was forced to occupy the West Bank and Gaza in 1967, and must hold these territories until others are ready for peace
Myth 7: Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza with benevolent intentions, but was forced to respond to Palestinian violence
Myth 8: The Oslo Accords reflected a desire on both sides to reach a solution
Myth 9: The Second Intifada was a mass terror attack orchestrated by Arafat
Myth 10: A solution in Israel and Palestine is just around the corner
Dr. Pappé concludes his article with an exhortation that any peace initiative focus foremost on the human rights and civil liberties of all individuals living in Israel-Palestine.
