- Not the South, thank God
A friend of mine posted the above image on Facebook.
Not only are many of the images outright dishonest, but they make no sense whatsoever being put together.
This image is dishonesty + illogical connections.
-The image on the left, shows those areas that were owned by Jews in 1947. The rest.....supposedly by Arabs. But this is a LIE. The areas of Palestine that were not owned by Jews, were not all owned by Arabs. Much of the land, especially in the south, had NO OWNER. Nobody owned much the desert in the Negev, it was simply "state-land". Nobody farmed there, nobody lived there, nobody owned it. As to those areas that actually did have a private owner? Who the hells knows. Some of those lands were owned by resident Arabs, some of those lands were owned by wealthy Turkish landlords. Either way, the idea that all the land not owned by Jews...was owned by the local Arabs..is absolutely baseless bullshit. Politics...to the max!!
-The image on the right, shows those areas in green that are under Palestinian civil control. This includes about 50% of the West Bank and Gaza. And yet, this dishonest image calls the green areas "Palestinian lands". But this is a LIE...as Palestinian private property extends well past these green areas, and includes much more of the West Bank. But again, for purely political purposes, the author of this image and those who spread it.....lies through their teeth.
And unfortunately, ignorant folks who care more about politics than facts, don't take the time to even check to see if their claims are even true. But its all good, in the name of Palestine.
