Parent Article: Historic Palestinian Photographs by Hanna Safieh on Display during Palestinian Film Festival October 1 – 3
Hidden with code "Policy Violation"
Is that entirely true? You are helping support a myth.
27 Sep 2004
"The reason I hid your previous posts (and the only reason I haven't hidden your subsequent ones is because Pete decided to leave them up and reply to them) is because you are denying the history of an entire people, denying that they exist"

There is an activist group called MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán National Constitution), who insist that the entire southwest United States is a country called Aztlan, and whose right to occupy that region is the impetus for illegal immigration and acquisition of "rights" there. There is no Aztlan, therefore any reference to Aztlan people and their rights is erroneous.

There is no Palestine, there never has been a Palestine. To deny the fact that all Palestinians are actually Israelis is racist and separatist. The only reason that Muslims living in the Gaza SAtrip and in Western Israel call themselves Palestinians is because their hate for Jews (whose name for Israel they refuse to speak), is so great. There is NO Palestine, and to state any different is erroneous. The people of the perceived "nation of Palestine" may have a history, but unless it also includes Israel it is a false history. The term "Palestine" is the racist term here. I merely expose the truth, not try to support a lie.

"Palestine" is specifically employed to avoid the use of the name Israel, and must be considered an anti-Israel term. In all Arab maps published in Jordan, Egypt, etc., the area west of the Jordan River is called Palestine, without any reference to Israel. Palestine is the term now used by those who want to deny the legitimate existence of Israel as a genuine nation among the family of nations.
