The Origins of Arab Settlers in the Land of Israel



Jewish Press, Rotem Nimkovsky: UN General Assembly resolution 181 of 1947 called for the partition of the British Mandate in Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab entities. The Jewish leadership accepted the resolution. The Arab countries rejected it, which is their right. What they had no right to, was to declare war on the Jewish population in the area.

The armies of seven Arab countries set out to destroy the Jewish state, which they outnumbered a hundred to one. They also persecuted the Jewish citizens who lived in their own countries for hundreds of years, forcing them to leave and take refuge in the newly created State of Israel.

The Arab nations, together with the Arab population in the British Mandate area, sought to annihilate the Jews in the region and failed. The only catastrophe for them in this scenario was that they lost the war. more …

Opinion: It’s so simple. In 1947, a two state solution was accepted by the Jews and refused by the Arabs. But that was not the first or last time it would be offered.

In 1922, Britain gave into Arab demands and lopped off 78% of the British mandate, creating the first two-state solution:

In fact, the Arabs could have had their own state in Israel at any time, but it was never about two states for two peoples, it was always about pushing Jacob out of the land for good, and making Israel an Arab state for Esau.

Few would dispute who the descendants of Jacob are: they are the Jewish people. Obadiah 1:6, however, warns us that the descendants of Esau are deceptive and will need to be searched out: they are the Arab Palestinians.

The enmity between the descendants of the twin brothers is over 3500 years old:

“Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”

Right there, your Honor, are exhibits A thru Z. Esau’s descendants are still trying to kill Jacob’s descendants and only Jesus Himself can and will solve it (Isaiah 63:1-3; Zechariah 12:10; Revelation 19:13:16).


  1. I recently read a book by David Brog called “Reclaiming Israel’s History”. According to the book, there have been at least five attempts to create two states in “Palestine”.
    1937 Arab revolt against British rule. The British sent Lord William Peel to investigate and he concluded that 80% of the land should go to the Arabs and 20% to the Jews. The Arabs said no.
    1947 United Nations partition plan would have given the Jews 57% (mostly desert) and the Arabs would get 42% with far less desert. Jerusalem and Bethlehem were to be international zones. The Arabs said no.
    1967 six day war. Israel wins and returns the Sinai to Egypt and the Golan Heights to Syria in exchange for peace treaties. The West Bank was offered to the Arabs living there as an independent state. The Arab League met and declared “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations with Israel”. So the West Bank Arabs fell in line and said no.
    2000 Ehud Barak offered Arafat 100% of the Gaza strip and 90% of the West Bank and sovereignty over Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods. Arafat said no and launched the second intifada. Later that year Barak offered all of the Gaza Strip, 94 to 96% of the West Bank, Israeli territory equal to an additional 1-3 % of the West Bank, a safe passage corridor between the West Bank and Gaza through Israeli territory and the Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem. Arafat said no.
    2006-2008 Ehud Olmert negotiated with Mahmoud Abbas 36 times. Olmert offered all of the Gaza Strip, Israeli territory equivalent to 100% of the West Bank, proposed sharing of Jerusalem with Palestinian Arabs (the Jewish part would be Israel’s capital and the Arab part would be the Palestine capital), relinquish control of the temple mount and the western wall, and allow 5000 refugees to return to Israel and comphensation for all refugees for their lost property. Abbas said no and like his predecessors never made a counter offer. Just a simple no.

    So anything short of total removal of the Israeli state will be met with a simple no until the final peace maker arrives on the scene.
