The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Has Internalized the Palestinian Big Lie

(JNS-Israel Hayom) Melanie Phillips - In a ceremony at the PA Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in Bethlehem, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's investigative arm delivered to the Palestinian Authority a 2,700-year-old spoon dating from the Assyrian empire. The Assyrians, who first emerged around 2000 BCE in Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq), developed a vast empire that included much of the Middle East, before it collapsed around 600 BCE. Ivan J. Arvelo, a special agent in charge of U.S. Homeland Security investigations in New York, described the transfer of the spoon to the PA as "the historic repatriation" of the artifact. But the spoon never belonged to the Palestinian people. There was no "Palestinian people" in antiquity. The "Palestinian people" was only invented in the 1960s in a strategy to destroy Israel cooked up by Yasser Arafat in cahoots with the Soviet Union. Central to the Palestinians' appeal to gullible supporters in the West is the claim that they are the indigenous people of the Land of Israel. They deny that the only people for whom Israel was ever their national kingdom were the Jews and that the Jews are the only indigenous people of the land. In 1977, a PLO executive committee member, Zahir Muhsein, said, "The Palestinian people does not exist....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." Why is the U.S., which claims to be Israel's staunch ally, giving credence to a false Palestinian identity created to write the Jews out of their own history?
