Albert Hourani (1915–1993), associated for over thirty years with
Oxford University (Magdalene College, St. Antony’s College), was one
of the leading historians of the Middle East in the postwar period and
the author of many books, including Arabic Thought in the Liberal Age,
Europe and the Middle East, and A History of the Arab Peoples. Before
embarking on his Oxford career, Hourani was director of research at
the Arab Office in Jerusalem, and in 1946 was one of four Arabs (the
others being Jamal Husayni, ‘Awni ‘Abd al-Hadi, and Ahmad Shukayri)
to testify before the full committee of the Anglo-American Committee
of Enquiry called upon to review the Palestine Problem in the light of
Jewish refugee situation in Europe. For a detailed background of the
politics—local, regional, and international—leading up to the testimony,
see Walid Khalidi’s “On Albert Hourani, the Arab Office, and the
Anglo-American Committee of 1946” in this issue. What follows is the
full transcript of Hourani’s oral testimony—the last to be presented
for the Arab side—as issued in the proceedings “Public Hearings before
the Anglo-American Committee of Enquiry, Jerusalem (Palestine),
25 March 1946” (IPS Archives).

MR. CHAIRMAN, I THINK it is best to speak as shortly as is consistent with the
adequate expression of my most important ideas, and I shall therefore not go
over in detail the grounds which have already been covered in our written

 I shall use my time in order to reply to certain questions which have
been raised in the course of your inquiry and to deal with certain considerations
which may be present in your minds. But before this, speaking as a member
of the Arab Office—and I believe as the last witness who will appear on the
Arab side—I think it is right to emphasize, without elaborating what needs
no further elaboration, the unalterable opposition of the Arab nation to the
attempt to impose a Jewish State upon it.

This opposition is based upon the
unwavering conviction of unshakeable rights and a conviction of the injustice
of forcing a long-settled population to accept immigrants without its consent
being asked and against its known and expressed will; the injustice of turning
a majority into a minority in its own country; the injustice of withholding
self-government until the Zionists are in the majority and able to profit by it.

On May 15, 1948 Rothschild Jewish militias launched a massive attack on the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine to ethnically cleanse them from their land in order to establish Israel as their Jewish state. This lead more than 750,000 Palestinians to flee their homes and become displaces as refugees in the neighboring countries. Most of the families that fled did not even have time to pack their belonging or anything in fear of being massacred by the vicious Jewish militias who went through villages massacring its inhabitants who refused to leave, most of whom were poor villagers and unarmed farmers. “We must do everything to insure they never return. The old will die and the young will forget” David Ben-Gurion – First Prime Minister of Israel, 1949.

Zionist Identity Thieves

“For the Mandates Commission, Palestine had never ceased to constitute a separate entity. It was one of those territories which, under the terms of the Covenant, might be regarded as “provisionally independent”. The country was administered under an A mandate by the United Kingdom, subject to certain conditions and particularly to the condition appearing in Article 5: “The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be . . . in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power”. […] Palestine, as the mandate clearly showed, was a subject under international law. While she could not conclude international conventions, the mandatory Power, until further notice, concluded them on her behalf, in virtue of Article 19 of the mandate. The mandate, in Article 7, obliged the Mandatory to enact a nationality law, which again showed that the Palestinians formed a nation, and that Palestine was a State, though provisionally under guardianship. It was, moreover, unnecessary to labour the point; there was no doubt whatever that Palestine was a separate political entity.” DocumentLink

The Rothschild's Jews stole the identity of Judaism and then the identity of Palestine.

Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948)
"We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine."

Contrary to the Hasbara, Palestine has existed far longer than any Jewish kingdom or Jewish State. By denying the existence of Palestine and the Palestinian people, the longer history of Jewish existence in the region, as Palestinian Jews, is being denied.

"There can be no kind of discussion of a voluntary reconciliation between us and the Arabs.... Any native people ... view their country as their national home.... They will not voluntarily allow, not only a new master, but even a new partner.... Colonization can have only one goal. For the Palestinian Arabs this goal is inadmissible. This is in the nature of things. To change that nature is impossible . . . colonization can, therefore, continue and develop only under the protection of a force independent of the local population-an iron wall which the native population cannot break through. This is, in total, our policy towards the Arabs. To formulate it any other way would only be hypocrisy."--Vladimir Jabotinsky --(18 October 1880 – 4 August 1940), was a Revisionist Zionist leader, author,orator,and founder of the Jewish Self-Defense Organization in Odessa. With Joseph Trumpeldor he co-founded the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I and later established several Jewish organizations, including Beitar, haTzohar and the Irgun (terrorist group).
