The “Invented” People

When former history professor Newt Gingrich made the bold statement about Palestinians being “an invented people” he was referencing the fact that (historically) the Arabs, of the area the Romans called “Palestine,” have never been a sovereign nation, with their own language, culture, or money.

Following centuries of Turkish and British control, the UN partition plan of 1947 called for the division of the historic Palestine into two states, one “Jewish” and the other “Arab.” Transjordan was created for the Arabs on the eastern side of the Jordan River, while the Jews, whose history and culture were inextricably recognized to be associated with the western side, were designated the land between the river and the Mediterranean Sea.

Peace can only come to the Middle East when the Islamic Arabs—including the “invented” Palestinians—give up their religiously-discriminatory dream of wiping Israel, the Jewish state, off the map.
