The false claim that Jewish settlers dispossessed Arab people from their land in Palestine - The Arabs dispossessed a million Jews

The false claim that Jewish settlers dispossessed Arab people from their land in PalestineThe Arabs dispossessed a million Jews.
The examination of records from 1820 onward will shock most people.

In the first place,
Palestine's population barely grew for 260 years -- rising from 200,000 Muslims, Christians and Jews in 1555 to only 270,000 in 1810. In the second, records from 1832, 1865, 1879 and 1893 and 1918, among others, demonstrate that when the heaviest Jewish immigration began in 1870, a large proportion of the 420,000 to 430,000 Arabs in Palestine were themselves recent immigrants.
Documents the origins of those immigrants demonstrate. Many Arabs that came from Egypt... In 1830 alone, 6,010 Egyptian Arabs settled in Akko...

Additionally, Arab and Muslim immigrants also came from
Algeria, Damascus, Yemen, Afghanistan, Persia, India, Tripoli, Morocco, Turkey, Tunisia, Sudan, Lebanon and Iraq...etc.

Numerous historical descriptions of a desolate landscape, composed almost entirely of swamps and deserts, and sold to the Jewish people by absentee Arab landlords, appointed by the Ottoman government, at enormous profits. Dozens of sales are documented specifically, including some by the Egyptian el-Husseini family of Yasser Arafat.
The Hajj Amin el-Husseini, the intractable opponent of Zionism, a Jew-hater on par with Hitler, admitted under questioning that no Arab land was stolen; no Arabs were wiped out, no villages destroyed.  Rather, the Jews bought hundreds of thousands of dunam (about ¼ of an acre) of land from willing sellers, often from absentee Arab landowners.  Moreover, thanks in part to the Zionists and the British, the quality of life for Palestine’s Arab peasantry was vastly improved, with less taxation, more schools, and an increase in Arab population.
The next time someone spouts the Arab line about how Zionists came and stole Arab land and drove Arabs out, just quote the Mufti.

A substantial amount of land was leased from the Ottoman Empire by the Arabs as sharecroppers, they never owned the land.

This documentation shatters the current Arab claim of dispossession.

P.S. The world at large must compare how Israel uplifted and resettled the dispossessed Million JEWISH REFUGEES FROM ARAB COUNTRIES and their children (who lived in those Arab countries for over 2,000 years) many Jews died from hardship and starvation during the expulsion. The Arab countries confiscated their assets, businesses, homes and Real Estate totaling 120,000 sq. km. - 46,000 sq. miles which is more than 5-6 times the size of Israel valued in the trillions of dollars with 68 years of Arab manipulation of a much lower number of Arab refugees. Mahmoud Abbas' stance on refugees makes a mockery of a two state solution, which will never happen. It denies the rights of the million Jewish refugees from the Arab countries. It sidesteps Arab culpability for starting the wars that led to BOTH refugee issues. And it runs counter to the way every other population exchange has been resolved. They have to consider relocating to Jordan and or to the homes and lands the Arabs confiscated from the expelled Jewish people. The Arabs have 21 States where they must resettle the Arab refugees , Israel has only one small one.

Obama’s relations with Israel and other Nations r6
Obama has no respect from many of the International community. Obama has no credibility, he has the least experience in real politics, he is the worst president the
U.S. has ever had.
Obama has alienated many nations and has caused foreign policy damage that is costing the American taxpayer trillions. His decisions are also costing numerous American lives in vain.
Obama has abused his executive powers and should be prosecuted for his violations. Obama is ignoring the true sovereignty of the Jewish people in
Israel and the various treaties and international agreements entered into after WWI and the various congressional resolutions on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people since WWI. Obama’s blatant disrespect of Netanyahu and Israel’s International legitimate rights shows his naivety in International matters and foreign policy.
Obama’s lack of etiquette is an outright embarrassment to the
United States.
Natanyahu is trying his best, but he will not compromise the security of
Israel and that is the way a leader should perform. No other decent leader of the free world perform differently.
It is interesting to note, that
Jordan (Jordan territory has taken over 77% of the land allocated to the Jewish people under 1920 International Treaty) is a country that never existed in history before WWI and nobody is contesting its legitimacy or territorial sovereignty and control. The same powers that established 21 Arab States plus Jordan after WWI also re-established the State of Israel based on the Balfour Declaration and the San Remo Treaty of 1920.
On the other hand,
Israel and its Jewish people have over 4,000 year of recorded history.
Many Nations and people are questioning
Israel’s control of its liberated territory. No one is mentioning that the Arab countries had ejected over a million adult Jewish people and their children from their countries which they have lived in for over 2,000 years, the Arabs confiscated their assets, businesses, homes and land. About 650,00 of these expelled Jewish people were resettled in Greater Israel. The Real estate the Arab countries confiscated from the Jewish people 120,000 sq. km. or 46,000 sq. miles which is over 5-6 times the size of Israel, and its value today is in the trillions of dollars.
Let the 21 Arab countries resettle the Arab Palestinians in the land they confiscated from the Jews which is 5-6 times the size of
Israel. Provide them with funds they confiscated from the million Jewish people they expelled and let them build an economy, This will benefit both the Arab-Palestinians and the hosting countries, The other alternative is relocate the Arab-Palestinians to Jordan, (originally land allocated for the Jewish people under the San Remo Treaty of 1920 and confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres and Lausanne) which is already 80% Arab-Palestinians, and give them funds to relocate and build an economy. This will solve the Arab-Palestinians refugee problem once and for all. It will also reduce hostility and strife in the region.
If this is not discrimination against
Israel, I do not know what is.
It seems like nobody cares about land violations in other countries in the world, but when it comes to
Israel, everyone has a say. Israel’s rights in the terms of the treaty of San Remo of 1920 are in affect in perpetuity, it clearly states that the Jewish people are the only ones with political rights in the British Mandate of Palestine and that the Jewish people can live anywhere in the British Mandate, confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres and Lausanne.
If the
U.S., Europe and other countries will stop meddling, and stop its criticism and involvement in the politics of Israel and the Arabs, than there will be a chance for peace.
We know the great powers are only interested in the OIL and nothing else, that is the bottom line.
A true and lasting peace in
Israel will bring mammoth economic prosperity to The Israelis and The Arabs alike.
An approach to peace starts by teaching your children and the people not to hate and condemn any acts violence that hurts civilian population and stop celebrating and rewarding the death and destruction of each other.

No Jew has the right to yield the rights of the Jewish People in
Israel -
David Ben Gurion
(David Ben-Gurion was the first Prime Minister of Israel and widely hailed as the State’s main founder).
“No Jew is entitled to give up the right of establishing [i.e. settling] the Jewish Nation in all of the
Land of Israel. No Jewish body has such power. Not even all the Jews alive today [i.e. the entire Jewish People] have the power to cede any part of the country or homeland whatsoever. This is a right vouchsafed or reserved for the Jewish Nation throughout all generations. This right cannot be lost or expropriated under any condition or circumstance. Even if at some particular time, there are those who declare that they are relinquishing this right, they have no power nor competence to deprive coming generations of this right. The Jewish nation is neither bound nor governed by such a waiver or renunciation. Our right to the whole of this country is valid, in force and endures forever. And until the Final Redemption has come, we will not budge from this historic right.”
at the Basle Session of the 20th Zionist Congress at
Zurich (1937)
“No country in the world exists today by virtue of its ‘right’.
All countries exist today by virtue of their ability to defend themselves against those who seek their destruction.”
