You still spewing that propaganda and Hasbara BS?
"...the myth of Palestine's 'first partition' has become part of the concept of 'Greater Israel' and of the ideology of Jabotinsky's Revisionist movement."
Just for you (again):
Egypt watch what you do and how you do it," said Sen. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." "You're teetering with the Congress on having your aid cut off if you keep inciting violence between the Israelis and the Palestinians."
Cutting off aid to nations supporting Hamas is one way to help balance the U.S. budget.
Removal of Transjordan and Golan from the British Mandate for Palestine
Britain ruled Palestine or parts of it from November 1917, under military rule. The mandate government did not take effect until 1922. By that time, the British Foreign Office was under some pressure from Arabs and their supporters and was having second thoughts about the national home for the Jews. Britain's first act was to split off 78% of the land from the mandate without consulting the League of Nations and to create Transjordan, as shown at right. Another bit of the mandate was removed in 1923, in an agreement with France that gave the entire Golan heights to mandatory Syria.
Doesn't matter who had the land first, the only thing that matters is:
- Who has it now? and
- Can they defend it to keep it?
The answers are:
- Israel, and
Would all the Hamas terrorist apologists here support the Piscataway Tribe firing rockets into Waldorf in some vain attempt to regain possession of Southern MD?
And would they condemn the MD National Guard or State Police for protecting the citizens by firing back at the aggressors to stop it?
Hamas Covenant 1988
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it" (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).”
No peaceful, organized religion nor peaceful nation, to the best of my knowledge, encourages, promotes and fosters such words of hatred. That part of the Hamas Covenant does truly appear to be a covenant with Satan.
Your hasbara BS is wrong again.
From the link I provided in post#282:
Bernard Wasserstein: "Bernard Wasserstein is an expert on the Middle East, and modern Jewish issues in particular."
Israelis and Palestinians: Why Do They Fight? Can They Stop?
Bernard Wasserstein, 2003, pp. 105-106.:
"In a telegram to the Foreign Office summarizing the conclusions of the [San Remo] conference, the Foreign Secretary, Lord Curzon, stated: 'The boundaries will not be defined in Peace Treaty but are to be determined at a later date by principal Allied Powers.' When Samuel set up the civil mandatory government in mid-1920 he was explicitly instructed by Curzon that his jurisdiction did not include Transjordan. Following the French occupation in Damascus in July 1920, the French, acting in accordance with their wartime agreements with Britain refrained from extending their rule south into Transjordan. That autumn Emir Faisal's brother, Abdullah, led a band of armed men north from the Hedjaz into Transjordan and threatened to attack Syria and vindicate the Hashemites' right to overlordship there. Samuel seized the opportunity to press the case for British control. He succeeded. In March 1921 the Colonial Secretary, Winston Churchill, visited the Middle East and endorsed an arrangement whereby Transjordan would be added to the Palestine mandate, with Abdullah as the emir under the authority of the High Commissioner, and with the condition that the Jewish National Home provisions of the Palestine mandate would not apply there. Palestine, therefore, was not partitioned in 1921-1922. Transjordan was not excised but, on the contrary, added to the mandatory area. Zionism was barred from seeking to expand there - but the Balfour Declaration had never previously applied to the area east of the Jordan. Why is this important? Because the myth of Palestine's 'first partition' has become part of the concept of 'Greater Israel' and of the ideology of Jabotinsky's Revisionist movement.End Quote
Bernard Wasserstein is an acknowledged expert on the subject. You, not so much (in fact not at all).
Since he (and his source) both admit that Transjordan was part of the Palestine Mandate, perhaps he could tell the forum where the Arab country of Jordan came from - if not from the area under the Mandate. And prior to WW1 and the Mandate period, who had legal ownership of that area?

Like it or not, Israel exists. And they've got the right to defend themselves.
Just like we (the US) would if the Native Americans rose up in armed revolt.
Even though they got royally screwed by the creation / expansion of the US.
Here's the UN partition plan from 1947. The Arabs would have had all of Gaza and most of the West Bank as well as Jaffa. Jerusalem would have been shared with the Israelis. It was not a bad deal for them.
