'Naqba' Day With A Jewish Twist To It

By     get stories by email

In the total pot of lies, the Arabs have cooked about Israel and Jews these past for 63 years and about how the Jews took their place among the world's nations as a sovereign Jewish State on their ancestral Land of Israel. They have come to believe that the Jews expelled Arabs who at that time lived on the land.

The Arabs see the founding of the Jewish State of Israel in 1948 as their "Naqba", in straight translation, their catastrophe. The "Naqba" day takes place on May 15, the day The Jewish leadership declared Israel as an Independent State.

So, if anyone suggests that we need to look into and empathize the "Naqba" day of the Arab-"Palestinians," they then need to visit the 20th Century history of East Prussia.

In many ways, World War II began in East Prussia with Hitler's campaign for Danzig. Near the end of the war it was emptied out of its population with hundreds of thousands of Germans fleeing the approaching Russian Red Army and the impending battles, and with hundreds of thousands more evicted after the Soviets pushed through East Prussia into Berlin.

In all, 1.8 to 2.2 million men, women and children of East Prussia were driven out or fled their homeland. That number is 4 times the number of Arab-"Palestinian refugees" who fled Israel from 1948-49. Parts of East Prussia were later annexed by Russia, the rest was incorporated into Poland.

And what about mourning for their "catastrophe" of losing everything on a personal lever and nationally? No one, not even the worst bleeding hearts in the West has ever believed East Prussians deserve any sympathy, support or compensation for their "plight." Everyone accepted that they were part of the German monstrosity that had launched the war. They became refugees as a direct result of the crimes and aggressions of the German people, crimes they, most enthusiastically, endorsed and in which they participated.

Therefore, the case of the East Prussians is exactly of the same circumstances under which Arab-"Palestinian" became refugees which is the direct result of launching a genocidal war of aggression on the Jews and then losing that war.

If one thinks the Arab-"Palestinians" deserve compassion, or the "Right of Return"? Sure, why not, but right after the East Prussians are granted their "Right of Return."
