Imagine that in 1948, the Jews who survived the terrible genocide perpetrated by the Nazis hadn’t created the separate nation of Israel but had instead simply gone to Palestine to settle peacefully among the local population. What a different world we would have today!
At the time, the entire world was very sympathetic to and full of compassion for the Jewish people because of what they had endured. The world was, in fact, “pro-Semitic” then, including the Arabic people, who are the Jews’ direct brothers since both groups are Semitic peoples. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic)
Knowing this, we can understand that no Arab could possibly be anti-Semitic, despite the much-propagated media lie to the contrary.
Beyond doubt, before the creation of Israel, the Palestinian people would have been ready to welcome all the Jewish survivors to their country, where Jews already made up three percent of the population and had lived happily among the Arabic people for centuries. This Jewish minority was highly respected and was perfectly integrated into the Muslim society.
What happened after World War II was both tragic and unnecessary. At first, many Jews emigrated there peacefully from Europe. Then some fanatical Zionists initiated the creation of a purely Jewish state that stole land and houses from the Arabic people, forcing more than a million of them into exile in a monstrous ethnic cleansing episode.
Imagine that this terrible crime had never been committed. The Palestinians would have welcomed Jews from around the world, since Muslims have great respect for Jews, described in the Koran as People of the Book (referring to the Bible). The Shoa [Holocaust] survivors would have brought with them to Palestine their enormous scientific and intellectual knowledge, and today we would have a rich country called Palestine that would be approximately 30 percent Jewish. Those Jews would now form part of a democratically elected government, and there would be no war there, nor any refugees – and no concentration camps like Gaza. September 11 wouldn’t have happened and we’d have no ‘war against terror.’ Just imagine…
