Well we have just experienced the truth behind their plan with the recent vote in the European Union and in several European countries to recognize an entity that they themselves refused to establish after the 1947 Partition vote. Realizing their error the Falestinians have embarked on a plan to not only de-legitimize the State of Israel but hey have set in motion a diabolical plan to negate Israel entirely. The proof of this can be seen in a paper written by Jeremy R. Hammond "The Myth of the U.N. Creation of
Blog entries, this is not "Just" an occurrence. I believe it to be a calculated scheme of demonization of Israel that derives from the lesson Yasser Arafat and his adjutant, Khalil Ibrahim al-Wazir - Abu Jihad learned while visiting North Viet Nam at the height of the US military's involvement in 1970.
During their visit to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and his chief strategist, Võ Nguyên Giáp taught Arafat how to manipulate the sympathy of the Liberals in the West, just as they had in the USA. The North Vietnamese together with their KGB affiliates, instructed Arafat to use the hundreds of Falestinian emigres and students living in
As Khaled Abu Toameh said in his 2009 article; On Campus: The Pro-Palestinians' Real Agenda. "We have seen in many videos that there is more sympathy for Hamas on many US campuses than there is in Ramallah." "What is happening on the U.S. campuses is not really about supporting the Falestinians as much as it is about promoting hatred for the Jewish state. It is not really about ending the "occupation" as much as it is about ending the existence of Israel." "The so-called pro-Palestinian "junta" on the campuses has nothing to offer other than hatred and de-legitimization of Israel."
The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism".
Canadian columnist Paul Schneidereit once wrote,
"[...] we've seen cases where the bodies of Palestinian martyrs carried on stretchers are inadvertently dropped, then, of their own volition, climb back on again. We’ve seen reports of massacres, as in Jenin in 2002, that turned out, after independent investigation, to have been greatly exaggerated. Needless to say, such episodes don’t instill an abiding trust in subsequent Palestinian claims, at least until they’re verified."
The footage of tons of materials flowing daily into Gaza and the pictures of marketplaces full of food and new malls are blithely ignored. Nary a word is mentioned to remind the younger members of the world audience about the forced removal of Israeli citizens who had settled the land and farmed it peacefully until 2005.
In 2003, Israeli commandos in Operation "Noah's Ark" intercepted the Karine A in the Red Sea, and seized 50 tons of missiles, mortars, rifles and ammunition which it said were destined for Gaza.
In 2009, the Israeli navy intercepted the Iranian vessel MV Francop off the coast of Cyprus, carrying hundreds of tons of weapons.
In March 2011 a military operation conducted by the Israeli Navy code name Operation Iron Law intercepted the German-owned, Liberian-flagged vessel Victoria on the high seas. On board were concealed approximately 50 tons of weapons, including C-704 anti-ship missiles, rocket launchers, radar systems, mortar shells and rifle ammunition.
The story behind of the lost the election by the Fatah movement of the "Falestinian Authority" to the Hamas terrorist group in 2007 who took over in a ruthless and deadly fratricidal act has been all but forgotten in the obsession to de-legitimize Israel. Instead of attempting to live in peace as hoped. Hamas turned the Gaza Strip into a base for countless terrorist attacks against he Israeli civilian population mainly in the form of deadly rocket attacks.
We have also been exposed to countless libelous news reports where these propagandists have created a fable that Gaza or the areas of the "West Bank" are open air 'concentration camps" further strengthening this view of equating Israel to Nazi Germany. I believe that the reason for this labeling of Israel as a country committing "Genocide", together with the sick massive pro-Falestinian and their lackeys attempt to associate Israel with the Nazi regime in Germany committing a "Holocaust", resides in the wording of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
So in order to create a connection to the Arab-Israeli conflict, and to form a legal basis for implementing the Fourth Geneva Convention. The pro-Falestinian propagandists and their trolls have brainwashed the world with the terms: Occupation, ZioNazis and Genocide. This brainwashing or if you prefer Dr Carl Sagan's term "Bamboozled" has allowed for the reversal of the image of the causality of the conflict, especially in front of Western audiences from that of the pre-1967 image of Israel to that of the poor deprived "Falestinians" of Pallywood fame.
A leading authority on the Law of Nations, Professor Julius Stone, once had categorically rejected the use of the term “occupied territory” to describe the territories controlled by Israel on the following counts:
(1) Article 49 relates to the invasion of sovereign states and is inapplicable because the West Bank did not and does not belong to any other state.
(2) The drafting history of Article 49 [Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War] – that is, preventing “genocidal objectives” must be taken into account. And according to Professor Julius Stone those conditions do not exist in Israel’s case.
Through their manipulation of the world press the pro-Falestinian propagandists have succeeded to label the ethnically cleansed Israeli residents of the re-established pre-1948 Jewish communities in Gush Etzion of which the four main villages were: Kfar Etzion, Massu'ot Yitzhak,Ein Tzurim and Revadim of Judea and the Old Quarter in Jerusalem as "occupiers" and as "settlers". The "Falestinians" have even gone so far as to brand ALL Jewish residents of Israel, on both sides of the 1949 Rhodes Armistice "Green Line" not only as "occupiers" and as "settlers" but as "usurpers".
“...under customary international law as reflected (...) in Article 42 of the Regulations Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land annexed to the Fourth Hague Convention of 18 October 1907 (hereinafter “the Hague Regulations of
1907”), territory is considered occupied when it is actually placed under the authority of the hostile army, and the occupation extends only to the territory where such authority has been established and can be exercised.”
Therefore in all intents and purposes under International Law the area became terra nullius or "land belonging to no one". The
There are no clauses in the Fourth Geneva Convention that can be used to prohibit the voluntary return of individuals to towns and villages from which they or their ancestors had been previously ejected by forcible means.
ARTICLE 49 The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies. Article 8(2)(b)(viii) of the International Criminal Court Rome Statute defines "[t]he transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies" as a war crime. (*) This should be read only in the context of the World War II forcible migrations. It is only intended to cover forcible transfers and to protect the local population from displacement and not voluntary movement.
Shamgar further stated:
"There is no rule of international law according to which the Fourth Convention applies in each and every armed conflict whatever the status of the parties.... The whole idea of the restriction of military government powers is based on the assumption that there has been a sovereign who was ousted and that he was a legitimate sovereign."
The Israeli legal argument was dismissed by the International Court of Justice. The Court cited the Geneva Convention's travaux préparatoires, which recommended that the conventions be applicable to any armed conflict "whether [it] is or is not recognized as a state of war by the parties" and "in cases of occupation of territories in the absence of any state of war" as confirmation that the drafters of the article had no intention of restricting the scope of its application"
Historically the area in question was called the "West Bank" by members of the British Foreign Office to avoid the use of the name

This part of the Mandate for Palestine designated as part of the future Arab State in the November 29th, 1947 Partition vote (UNR181) was conquered and held by the Kingdom of Trans-Jordan from 1948 until 1967, who attempted to annex the area. Due to inter-sectarian violence and rivalries it was never controlled by an Independent Arab entity ruled by and for the Arabs of the Mandated areas.
Therefore by legal definition the "

In 1971 Israeli Attorney-General, Meir Shamgar stated in his interpretation that: "The Convention did not pertain to the territories captured by Israel since they had not previously been recognized as part of a sovereign state and could not be considered "the territory of a High Contracting Party".
