Assessment: A growing chorus of progressive government officials and staffers will bring trouble on our nation …
Hussain Altamimi, according to Fox News, is a legislative assistant for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Hypocritical Florida Vacay). It is unclear whether one has to express hatred for Israel to get such a job, or if it is simply the case that only haters of Israel will apply, but in any case young Altamimi took to Instagram on Christmas Eve to rant that “Israel is a racist European ethnostate built on stolen land from its indigenous population!” That’s some strong red meat for the blue rubes, but not surprisingly, it isn’t remotely true.
“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
Aside from ignoring the descendants of the 900,000 Jews who were expelled from Arab lands upon the creation of the State of Israel, and who aren’t remotely European, Altamimi was ignoring the unbroken connection of the land of Israel and the Jews. The land that is now the State of Israel corresponds roughly to the lands known in ancient times as Judea, Samaria, Idumea, and Galilee, and was inhabited by Jews from time immemorial.
In A.D. 134, the Romans expelled the Jews from the area in retaliation for a revolt against their rule led by the self-appointed messiah Simon Bar Kokhba; as an insult to the Jews and to efface any traces of their connection to the land, they renamed Jerusalem Aelia Capitolina and the region Palestine, a name they plucked from the Bible, as it was the name of the Israelites’ ancient enemies, the Philistines.
Subsequently, Palestine was the name of a region but never of a people or of a political entity. The area that was Palestine was part of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire until it was conquered by the Arabs. Later it came under the control of the Turks, who ruled it until the Ottoman Empire collapsed at the end of World War I.
