Lies And Distortions vs The Truth At The End Of The Age

    John 8:44
    You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies

As stated before, one of the hallmarks of this generation has been the lies and distortions put forth by the MSM. Of particular concern is the lies and distortions which pertain to things that really matter - such as freedom, liberty, the Middle East and Israel - just to name a few. One of the biggest lies that seems generally accepted by an ignorant (aka "low information") population has to do with Israel: 

The Arabs invented a special national entity in the 1960s called the Palestinians, specifically for political gain. They brand Israelis as invaders and claim the geographic area called Palestine belongs exclusively to the Arabs.
The word Palestine is not even Arabic. It is a word coined by the Romans around 135 CE from the name of a seagoing Aegean people who settled on the coast of Canaan in antiquity – the Philistines. The name was chosen to replace Judea, as a sign that Jewish sovereignty had been eradicated following the Jewish revolts against Rome.

In the course of time, the Latin name Philistia was further bastardized into Palistina or Palestine. During the next 2,000 years, Palestine was never an independent state belonging to any people, nor did a Palestinian people, distinct from other Arabs, appear during 1,300 years of Muslim hegemony in Palestine under Arab and Ottoman rule.
Palestine was and is solely a geographic name. Therefore, it is not surprising that in modern times the name ‘Palestine’ or ‘Palestinian’ was applied as an adjective to all inhabitants of the area between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River – Palestine Jews and Palestine Arabs alike. In fact, until the 1960s, most Arabs in Palestine preferred to identify themselves merely as part of the great Arab nation or citizens of “southern Syria.”
The term ‘Palestinian’ as a noun was usurped and co-opted by the Arabs in the 1960s as a tactic initiated by Yasser Arafat to brand Jews as intruders on someone else’s turf. He presented Arab residents of Israel and the Territories as indigenous inhabitants since time immemorial. 
This fabrication of peoplehood allowed Palestinian Arabs to gain parity with the Jewish people as a nation deserving of an independent state.
Historically, Before the Arabs Fabricated the Palestinian People as an Exclusively Arab Phenomenon, No Such Group Existed

Countless official British Mandate-vintage documents speak of ‘the Jews’ and ‘the Arabs’ of Palestine – not ‘Jews and Palestinians.’

Encouraged by their success at historical revisionism and brainwashing the world with the ‘Big Lie’ of a Palestinian people, Palestinian Arabs have more recently begun to claim they are the descendants of the Philistines and even the Stone Age Canaanites. Based on that myth, they can claim to have been ‘victimized’ twice by the Jews: In the conquest of Canaan by the Israelites and by the Israelis in modern times – a total fabrication.

Archeologists explain that the Philistines were a Mediterranean people who settled along the coast of Canaan in 1100 BCE. They have no connection to the Arab nation, a desert people who emerged from the Arabian Peninsula.

Contradictions abound, Palestinian leaders claim to be descended from the Canaanites, the Philistines, the Jebusites and the first Christians. They also co-opt Jesus and ignore his Jewishness, at the same time claiming the Jews never were a people and never built the Holy Temples in Jerusalem.

There Has Never Been a Sovereign Arab State in Palestine

The artificiality of a Palestinian identity is reflected in the attitudes and actions of neighboring Arab nations who never established a Palestinian state. It also is expressed in the utterances and loyalties of so-called Palestinians.

The Arabs never established a Palestinian state when the UN offered a partition plan in 1947 to establish “an Arab and a Jewish state” (not a Palestinian state, it should be noted). Nor did the Arabs recognize or establish a Palestinian state during the two decades prior to the Six-Day War when the West Bank was under Jordanian control and the Gaza Strip was under Egyptian control; nor did the Palestinians clamor for autonomy or independence during those years under Jordanian and Egyptian rule.
Well before the 1967 decision to create a new Arab people called ‘Palestinians,’ when the word ‘Palestinian’ was associated with Jewish endeavors, Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, a local Arab leader, testified in 1937 before a British investigative body – the Peel Commission – saying: “There is no such country [as Palestine]! Palestine is a term the Zionists invented! There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our country was for centuries, part of Syria.”

[Of course, this is, after all, the "Gog-Magog alliance"]

Iran and Russia are negotiating an oil-for-goods swap worth $1.5 billion a month that would let Iran lift oil exports substantially, in defiance of Western sanctions that helped force Tehran to agree a preliminary deal to end its nuclear program.

Russian and Iranian sources close to the barter negotiations said final details were in discussion for a deal that would see Moscow buy up to 500,000 barrels a day of Iranian oil in exchange for Russian equipment and goods.

"Good progress is being made at the moment with strong chances of success," said a Russian source. "We are discussing the details and the date of signing a deal depends on those details." The Kremlin declined comment.

"Our desire is to sign the deal as soon as possible," said a senior Iranian official, who declined to be named. "Our officials are discussing the matter with the Russians and hopefully it will be inked soon, regardless of whether we can reach a (nuclear) agreement in Geneva."

It is not clear whether the deal would be implemented before the nuclear agreement, outlined in Geneva in November between Iran and six world powers, is finalized.

Nor is it clear how Moscow will justify to other powers a barter deal that could jeopardize the nuclear negotiations by easing the economic pressure on Tehran.

Russia is one of the countries involved in the nuclear talks but, unlike the United States and the European Union, has not imposed sanctions on Iran.

Technical nuclear talks between Iran and the European Union started on Thursday. The November deal was designed to halt Iran's nuclear advances for six months to buy time for a final settlement by May.

US and European sanctions have cut Iran's oil exports by more than half over the past 18 months to about one million barrels a day. Russia has no sanctions on Iran.

Russian purchases of 500,000 bpd of Iranian crude would lift Iran's oil exports by 50 percent and provide a major boost to its struggling economy. At current oil prices near $100 a barrel Iran would earn about an additional $1.5 billion a month.

"Iran has to find a way to accommodate more exports: this is the reason behind this," an Iranian official said. "Both sides should rush for it. Russia will be able to guarantee a large amount of trade with its neighbor and Iran will be able to overcome its export difficulties."

Persecution with a Progressive twist… here they come for the conservatives. The Left feels so emboldened that they are blatantly hunting us now for all the world to see. This week alone, in high profile they have used their primary weapon of choice, the IRS, against the TEA Party and the Friends of Abe. Cuomo in New York has bellowed that conservatives are not welcome in his state and has just filed a subpoena against James O’Keefe. Marxist media is compiling a database of concealed carry permit owners to target them as well. It is the new Progressive McCarthyism and it will be used against each of us in turn if you find yourself on the other side of the political spectrum.

It would seem the IRS has an actual BOLO (be on the lookout for) list. Friends of Abe has been told by their IRS representative that they are on that list and are being targeted. Not only are TEA Party groups also being targeted in the same manner, conservatives in general are being attacked by the IRS and various Obama Administration agencies. If you lean right, they consider you the enemy and they will come after you. It’s not paranoia if they are really after you folks. Welcome to the new blacklist era.

I’ve barely scratched the surface and this is just in the last few days. Things are heating up and the conservative hunt is on. You are seeing the unfolding of the new Progressive McCarthyism in play. Progressives have picked the wrong prey – we’ll just see who is the hunter and who is the hunted. We won’t stand still for being targeted and persecuted. We won’t go quietly if you come to get us. You are going to have one hell of a fight on your hands. Conservatives aren’t afraid of shadow governments or Leftist monsters under our beds. You may think you are portraying conservatism as the new communism, but colors do tell and right now America is seeing red all over the place.

Great overview, Scott, on the history of the term "Palestine."

"The Truth on Israel & Palestine Conflict"

The above link is an excellent documentary of the history of Israel in general, including the origin of Palestine (about 49 min. in). The video is almost an hour & 1/2 long, but of course if you hit an area you're too familiar with, you can just move forward past it. I was reminded (by the maps presented throughout the video) how small an area the "center of all history" revolves around.

Isn't is just like our Jehovah-God to do things is such an insurmountable way? Only those of us not swayed by the lies of this world can watch in awe-- for as long as He leaves us here-- as He continues to unfold the rest of HIStory.
