The First Intifada

The First Intifada was a grassroots uprising against Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. Intifada is an Arabic word for “civil uprising” that literally means “shaking off.”
It began on 9 December 1987 in the Jabaliya Refugee Camp in the Gaza Strip, when an Israeli truck crashed into two vans carrying Palestinian workers killing four of them. This event served as a catalyst sparking rebellions throughout the occupied territories.

No single person or organization was responsible for the uprising and in fact it caught the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) by surprise. Palestinian youths, tired of Israel’s repressive policies in the occupied territories, carried the Intifada.

They were directed by the Unified National Leadership of the Uprising, which was a coalition of the PLO’s four main parties operating in the West Bank and Gaza Strip: Fatah, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), and the Palestine People’s Party (PPP). The Intifada aimed to end the Israeli occupation and establish Palestinian independence.

Palestinians were frustrated and angry with Israel’s increasingly oppressive and colonialist policies towards them. Palestinians were forced to pay taxes to Israel, while they were subject to army raids, random detentions, and denied basic civil rights. Their collective national aspiration for their own state was also denied.

These injustices were compounded by Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem and the construction of illegal settlements on Palestinian land in the West Bank. Palestinians’ frustration had been simmering for years and the deaths of the Palestinians in Gaza on 9 December 1987 made it boil over.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians engaged in a variety of civil disobedience, including: strikes, demonstrations, refusal to pay taxes, and boycotts of Israeli products. Israel responded harshly, closing Palestinian schools, making mass arrests, imposing closure and curfew, and shutting down demonstrations with brutal force.
 In 1990 former Israeli Defense Minister Yitzak Rabin (who would later sign the Oslo accords with the PLO) famously ordered his soldiers to “break the bones” of the demonstrators. From 1987 to 1991 Israeli forces killed over 1,100 Palestinians, many of who were children, and injured tens of thousands.

The Intifada attracted International attention. The United Nations Security Council Resolution 605 condemned Israel for the large number of Palestinian deaths that occurred in the first weeks of the Intifada as a violation of the Geneva Conventions.

News coverage of the uprising – depicting stone-throwing Palestinian teenagers confronting armed soldiers – also generated new international sympathy for the Palestinian cause.
The Intifada demonstrated to the world the legitimate national sentiments of the Palestinian people. It paved the way for future negations between Israel and the PLO culminating in the Oslo Accords.

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).
