Jewish #Palestine, 1800’s

Jewish #Palestine, 1800’s

Barren…… just like the bible said:

Isaiah 11:12  He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.



“There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent (valley of Jezreel, Galilea); not for thirty miles in either direction… One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee… Nazareth is forlorn… Jericho lies a mouldering ruin… Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation… untenanted by any living creature. “ – Mark Twain, “The Innocents Abroad”, 1867

“There are many proofs, such as ancient ruins, broken aqueducts, and remains of old roads, which show that it has not always been so desolate as it seems now. In the portion of the plain between Mount Carmel and Jaffa one sees but rarely a village or other sights of human life. There some rude mills here which are turned by the stream. A ride of half an hour more brought us to the ruins ..”  – B. W. Johnson, in “Young Folks in Bible Lands”: Chapter IV, 1892

“The land in Palestine is lacking in people to till its fertile soil”.  – British archaeologist Thomas Shaw, mid-1700s

“Palestine is a ruined and desolate land”.  – Count Constantine François Volney, XVIII century French author and historian –

“The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population”.  – James Finn, British Consul in 1857

In 1844, William Thackeray writes about the road from Jaffa to Jerusalem: “Now the district is quite deserted, and you ride among what seem to be so many petrified waterfalls. We saw no animals moving among the stony brakes; scarcely even a dozen little birds in the whole course of the ride.”

In 1866, W.M. Thomson writes: “How melancholy is this utter desolation. Not a house, not a trace of inhabitants, not even shepherds, to relieve the dull monotony … Much of the country through which we have been rambling for a week appears never to have been inhabited, or even cultivated; and there are other parts, you say, still more barren.”

In 1874, Reverend Samuel Manning wrote: “But where were the inhabitants? This fertile plain, which might support an immense population, is almost a solitude…. Day by day we were to learn afresh the lesson now forced upon us, that the denunciations of ancient prophecy have been fulfilled to the very letter — “the land is left void and desolate and without inhabitants.”(Jeremiah, ch.44 v.22)

“The area was under populated and remained economically stagnant until the arrival of the first Zionist pioneers in the 1880s, who came to rebuild the Jewish land. The country had remained “The Holy Land” in the religious and historic consciousness of mankind, which associated it with the Bible and the history of the Jewish people. Jewish development of the country also attracted large numbers of other immigrants – both Jewish and Arab.”  – The report of the British Royal Commission, 1913

-Ibn Khaldun (Arabic: أبو زيد ولي الدين عبد الرحمن بن محمد بن خلدون الحضرمي)-
one of the most credible Arab historians, in AD1377  wrote:

“Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel extended over 1400 years… It was the Jews who implanted the culture and customs of the permanent settlement”.

“In the East, however, crafts have established themselves since the days of ancient Persian, Babylonian, Egyptian, Israelite, Greek and Roman rule”.  [Ibid., p 55]

In The 13th century, Arab biographer -Yaqut ibn-‘Abdullah(Arabic: ياقوت الحموي الرومي‎)- noted Mecca is holy to Muslims; Jerusalem is holy only to the Jews.

“Palaestina ex monumentis veteribus illustrata” – a detailed geographical survey of Palestine in 1696 written in Latin by Adriaan Reland published by Willem Broedelet, Utrecht, in 1714.

23 thoughts on “Jewish #Palestine, 1800’s

  1. Arab stateless refugees have no more rights than had Jewish stateless refugees from the destruction of the Temple to the Shoah.

  2. Till the Arab or Muslim nation or nations agree to repatriate them. Since 1948 till the present no Arab or Muslim nation has agreed to repatriate Arab refugees from the 1948 war of Israeli Independence.

    By contrast, almost all Arab and Muslim countries expelled their Jewish refugee populations from their lands. Israel immediately repatriated all Jews who wanted to live in Israel, some 800,000 Yidden.

  3. The entire propaganda of “Right of Return” assumes that these Arab refugees are not refugees at all. An utterly absurd argument on par with Arab refugees descended from the ancient [extinct] Philistines. Philistines originally came from Europe! As if Arabs came from Europe.

  4. Well, boo hoo for the pathetic arabs.
    The word of God says that Israel is Jewish land and only Jewish land.
    The whiney arabs own everything else over there and they still cry about Israel. Its one of the great evils of our time.

  5. Yep. I know. I know they can look you in the eye and lie. They just really have no morals.
    They ‘think’ they do but they dont.
    Ive met a few arabs in my life. One was from pukestine. She loved me, believe it or not. She was one of my employees. She used to tell me, ‘youre the only one i can talk to’. Her family were strict islamics. She had NO freedom. She used to call Israel, ‘palestine’.
    I would correct her all the time.
    Theyre just lost people that are wild and nuts.

    Theyre just like the Commie Leftists which is why they get along with idiot, leftist jews who are the leading psychopaths

  6. ותנן פרק ראשון מכות:  מעידין אנו באיש פלוני, שהוא חייב לגלות.  אין אומרים יגלה זה תחתיו.  אלא לוקה ארבעים. 
             This Mishna refers to עדות שקר.  Brought this precedent to suggest that the Sha’s addresses  diverse ways by which a person can inflict damages upon others.  Some types of damages, obvious to the eye to discern.  But there exist concealed destructors, comparable to bacteria or viruses that can and do destroy the health of a man.  These סודי destructors, they attack and destroy, like the din of כרת, worse than the most dreadful Black Death pandemics, not just a generation or two but all generations of the Yidden people.
             People of the tuma caliber of Benedict Arnold/Nancy Pelosi types, they threaten to wipe out their own people.  Had the betrayal of Arnold succeeded, the United States would never have existed as a nation.  The Madame Speaker has converted the House of Congress unto a political brothel.  The decisions she has made as Speaker goes beyond show casing her public contempt for the Office of the President; she favors that the American people detest and despise their own forefathers.
             Other concealed destructors, Gay rights, Abortion, multiple sexual identities etc.  Actions compare to stones thrown into a still pond, they produce their own unique set of ripples.  The EU and UN loved the Clinton peace plan but they despise the Trump deal of the century.  This suggests a hidden hostile agenda by which Europeans prefer g’lut Jewry over Israeli national independence.  What strategic red line must they cross before our leaders determine the strategic best interests of our nation, to cut diplomatic relations with both entities, beginning with the EU.
            Europeans have no love for the Jewish people.  The Shoah did not just “surprise” happen.  These barbarians excluded Jewish refugee populations from working in the Guilds.  They forbade Jews from owning or farming land.  They take perverse pleasure in slandering our people at the drop of a hat.  Given just about any opportunity they stab our people in the back.  As they gently stroke our hand and look us in the face and say: “Trust me”.
             Arabs, their culture encourages them to lie to one another.  But the suave debonair pistache by which European barbarians assume a position of moral superiority.  Only disgraced Shoah Europe could, without shame, attempt to foist a European “International” Criminal Court upon all countries across the planet.  As if Europeans had never repeatedly committed the most despicable war crimes against humanity, throughout its smug and conceited history.  Europeans have this unique style, they doll up the most obnoxious whore in a Cinderella gown with glass slippers and parade this disgusting bitch as some Pope of moral superiority.

  7. Arabs – they live as our neighbors in the community of nations in the Middle East. Israel has no real dispute with stateless Arab refugee populations. Its a smoke and mirrors propaganda foisted upon humanity by imperialist European countries who seek to dominate the Middle East as if it existed as their private garden.

    The conflicts in the Middle East serves European imperialist interests – divide and conquer, alias – 2 State “solution”. Jews well know Europeans love for “Final Solutions”. Israel, we must develop a respect for Arab and Muslim countries. Their prosperity assures Israeli prosperity. Their Civil Wars and occupation by European imperialist armies, as the case of Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq clearly testify … Middle East chaos threatens the long term survival of the Jewish State.

    Let the Arab refugee populations believe their “obvious” lies, they only deceive themselves. The eternal enemy – from the Greek and Roman invasions till today – Europe hands down. European duplicity seeks to foist the “Arab/Israeli” conflict as if it exists as some unsolvable mystery. Horseradish don’t buy into this rhetoric fraud. Arabs and Jews can work together in friendship. But Jews must never again fall before European airs of moral superiority.

  8. What the hell was with the Europeans?
    To this day, they just refuse to leave Jews alone.
    And, just look at their own shitholes. They did this to themselves and they blame Jews.
    Theyre insane
    APATHY murdered the west and no one else

  9. But post WW2, with Europe in total ruins, Europeans ceased as 1st world countries.  American troops occupy Europe to this day.  When the EU attempted to write a Constitution, it made no mention to Xtianity – that dead religion which produced both Stalin and Hitler.  

    European society stands in absolute horror today.  Three years after the despicable crime of the Century – the Shoah – Jews achieved political independence as a nation!  Xtian Europe now found itself in moral exile.  Jews ruled once again their national homelands and Xtian European society stood in total disgrace waiting for the 2nd Coming of Jesus son of Zeus.  Only in Greek/Roman mythology does a God rape a married woman, and the child produced somehow [a miracle] does not qualify as a bastard son.  The Roman forgery known as the New Testament dresses up its “virgin birth” Jesus in Jewish garments while teaching Greek/Roman mythology.   That work refers to this as: “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

    The messiah claims based upon “prophecy”, utterly ridiculous.  In the Jewish bible – called the T’NaCH – [Torah/Prophets/Holy Writings.  The latter functions as a Primary Source commentary to the Prophets and Torah.  Don’t want to bore you, but Jewish jurisprudence obeys a set of rules.  Obviously the post Torah generations struggled with interpreting the Torah “Constitution” {something like the Koran in Saudi Arabia and Iran today}.  A basic rule of interpretation: you cannot learn a verse taken out of context.  Another basic rule, called a mountain hanging by a hair, key words like faith, love etc require a definition from the Torah itself before you can “hang” other ideas or concepts upon these strategic words.] – the Torah defines “prophet” as a person who commands mussar.  Mussar applies equally and to all generations of people living on this earth.  It means דרך ארץ/derech aretz.  

    This concept roughly means – a person dedicates pronoun attributes of G-d.  This means that a person commits to modify or change the manner by which he socially interacts with others based upon the defined attribute which he has dedicated unto G-d within his heart.  This type of Jewish spirituality defines the complex subject of prayer.  G-d hears a person’s prayer, when that person, based upon the defined attribute dedicated to G-d, modifies how he/she socially interacts with other people.

    The Talmud compares an imperfect human attribute to a person going to a mikveh while holding a rat.  [Non Jews don’t know the culture and customs of Jews b/c we represent a tiny speck of humanity.  Jewish purity laws apply to a married woman.  It requires her to ritually purify herself following her menstruation period.  The reason for this, a woman ovulates 7 to 11 days after she ceases bleeding.  Ritual purity customs favor that couples have sex under conditions most conducive to producing children from those sexual couplings.

    Consequently by these purity customs, a Jewish woman must bath herself in a special bath called a mikveh.  A person who seeks to make herself “tohor” [A very complex subject.  The entire service of the house of Aaron to dedicate sacrifices unto G-d, revolves around this subject of “tohor”.  But it applies across the board to all Jews.  Both males and females have an obligation to dedicate “tohor” attributes unto G-d].

    So a person [Like a convert to Judaism which requires that that person “bathe” in a mikveh {baptism represents a Xtian interpretation of the requirement to go to the mikveh}], who goes into a mikveh while holding a rat [a tuma/opposite of tohor/ animal], clearly does not make themselves ritually cleansed from tuma.  Therefore based upon this required preface, the human heart equally holds tohor and tuma attributes.  This struggle within the heart defines the Jewish concept of prayer.

    A person does not make a petition to God for something.  Rather a person dedicates a “tohor” attribute to G-d, as later expressed to the modifications made unto that persons’ social behavior with others.  Jewish prayer separates itself from non Jewish prayers on this foundation – known as Oral Torah.  Oral Torah, like prophetic mussar/דרך ארץ, attaches itself to ritual rabbinic laws known as halaka.  A person who observes and keeps halaka without dedication of some tohor attribute to G-d, compares to a person who goes to the mikvah while holding a dead rat.

    Practical halaka expands the avenue of Jewish prayer dedications to G-d, unto all fields and walks of life, down to how a person eats, ties his/her shoes or wipes his/her behind.

  10. Yes, I know very well about purifying after menstruation and have female acquaintances who practice..

    Unfortunately for me, I had a semi Liberal mother–shes not like that now but was then–and she taught my sister and I to GO TO WORK. “Be a man”.
    Go to college. Grandmother also. Big womens libbers.

    I rejected the whole feminist/womens lib mantra when I was 27 years old.
    I had went on a hike with 5 men and 4 other women. The men were always .25 mil ahead of us. this baffled me bec I was taught ‘women were equal’
    I asked the guide, a very nice Christian lady- “Why are they SO FAR ahead!”
    She said:
    Pauli…. ‘They are men. Men are just built bigger, larger hearts, lungs, legs, arms, etc.’

    The whole hike was horrible and hard. The men acted like it was NOTHING!!

    That day, I knew that women were NOT equal to men. It changed my life.

    It would have been better for me to have learned to become a domestic housewife. I would have been a LOT happier.
    I am domestic now and very, very content. I have the sweetest semi relig Jewish hubby and I love him to pieces. He grew up in a religious Jewish home. I grew up with really no faith. Which is so wrong.

    The whole career, women are equal, work til you drop is just propaganda. Women are much happier and joyful at home.

  11. Yeah, aint it?
    I read everything you say and ponder it.
    I just dont understand everything you say.
    Shabbat Shalom
