Betrayal of Palestine

The real history of the making and sustaining of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel invites the conclusion that the Arab regimes betrayed the Palestinians.

There’s no mystery about the betrayal. When the Palestine file was closed by Israel’s 1948 victory on the battlefield and the armistice agreements, the divided and impotent Arab regimes secretly shared the same hope as the Zionists and the major powers. It was that the file would remain closed forever. The Palestinians were supposed to accept their lot as the sacrificial lamb on the altar of political expediency.

Nor is there any mystery about why the Arab regimes were at one with the Zionists and the major powers in hoping that there would never be a regeneration of Palestinian nationalism.

They all knew that if there was, there would one day have to be a confrontation with Zionism, and nobody wanted that.

When Yasser Arafat, Abu Jihad and a few others lit the slow-burning fire of the regeneration of Palestine, it was the security services of Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon, which took the lead in trying to put it out.

This conflict continues…
