Reminder : What “From The River To The Sea” Really Means!

1 Comment

The chant of “From The River to the Sea – Free Palestine”,  has become commonplace throughout the world in hundreds of Pro Palestinian-Anti Israel rallies or demonstrations.

Although some or many of these rabid and hate filled antisemites, couldn’t even find “Palestine” on the world map, their chant is really only about destroying the Jewish state. Freeing “Palestine” from the River (Jordan) to the Sea (Mediterranean) -automatically means NO ISRAEL , in any size or shape!

These people who are simply mimicking the Hamas/PLO/PA charters, all of which call for the annihilation of the Jewish State, are calling for the establishment of yet another Moslem fundamentalist state at the expense of the lone Jewish one.

The sad irony of the antisemitic-antizionist chant, is that there HAS NEVER BEEN an independent Palestinian Arab state in this region. The Jewish people who have an unbroken 3800 years old bond to this land of Israel, are clearly the only indigenous people of this land. (It’s for good reason that the book on the Palestinian Heritage and History was full of blank pages.)

In addition – a quick internet search of flags in the world in the 1930’s, show that the “Palestinian” flag was actually the Jewish/Israeli flag with the star of David (Blue and White) before the establishment of the Jewish State in 1948. (See below)

And the reason for this Palestinian Flag – is the FACT that in 1921-22, the world (San Remo-League of Nations) recognized that PALESTINE WAS THE NATIONAL JEWISH HOMELAND.

In fact if it wasn’t for a deal made by the British-French with the Husseini clan – Palestine was meant to be BOTH Jordan and Israel of today. 


On November 29th, 1947 the United Nations adopted Resolution 181 (also known as the Partition Resolution) that would try to once again divide Great Britain’s former Palestinian mandate (THE JEWISH NATIONAL HOMELAND as above from the River to the sea) into Jewish and Arab states in May 1948, when the British mandate was scheduled to end.

The Jews accepted. The Arabs rejected and they went to war against the fledgling Jews State in 1948. The rest is history!
