What political body made up of Palestinian Arabs invited the Egyptians to occupy Gaza? Who was it's leader? What was the seat of their power? Where did they derive their authority from?Egypt was a custodian appointed and invited by the Palestinians from 1948 until 1967, so Israel never at any time "won Gaza from Egypt" because it was never Egypts.
Here's your second post. I didn't ignore it, I merely had not responded to it yet.Then you still stick with the "There is no such nation as “historic Palestine" that it's a "myth" yet i showed you clearly from my second posting, the one you ignored, that Palestine was a nation.
I am unsure what you think you're proving by this. What you've quoted is a section from Article 22 of the League of Nations Covenant. It spells out the goal of turning Mandates in the former Ottoman empire into functioning nations. What were you hoping it says?Wrong.
"4. Certain communities formerly belonging to the Turkish Empire have reached a stage of development where their existence as independent nations can be provisionally recognised subject to the rendering of administrative advice and assistance by a Mandatory until such time as they are able to stand alone. The wishes of these communities must be a principal consideration in the selection of the Mandatory....In a first group — "A" Mandates 1/ (Syria and Lebanon, Palestine and Transjordan, and Iraq) — the nation is provisionally recognised as independent, but receives the advice and assistance of a Mandatory in its administration until such time as it is able to stand alone. " Palestine being an A mandate was a state. Further the mandatory enacted, in 1925, a nationality law in Palestine.
You don't understand that the citizenship was in Mandatory Palestine, and not an independent state called Palestine, do you? People living in Mandatory Palestine (the area administered by the British under the terms of the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine) were able to be granted citizenship, by the British, in Mandatory Palestine. What kind of sovereign nation has to go to the British to issue citizenship in their country?The middle part of your comment is also wrong. Jews had to apply, through the nationality law, for Palestinian citizenship...some di, some did not.
The Jews didn't declare independence from a Palestinian state. Their declaration is entitled "The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel", and it came into effect at the moment the British Mandate for Palestine expired. Israel was declaring independence from the Mandate -- an independence that was the express goal of the Article 22 of the League of Nations, which you so helpfully posted the relevant text of earlier. The declaration invited all former citizens of the defunct Mandatory Palestine to become citizens of the new, independent, state of Israel.the bottom part of your comment hurts my head. In the middle part you say, " Jew and Arab — who lived in the region called Palestine was, by definition, a Palestinian." then you contradict that in the bottom part by saying, " Arab Palestinians just chose to not participate in the “Palestinian” state." Erm it was the zionists who declared independence from Palestine ergo it was the zionists who " chose to not participate in the “Palestinian” state" which in itself is weird because you just stated that "There was never a state called Palestine, ever."
As an aside, the state of Jordan declared independence on May 25, 1946. Do you think that they also were declaring independence from a Palestinian state?
There is a region that has historically been known as Palestine. A region isn't a state.But according to you it's all a myth. So when the KJ bible mentions the coasts of Palestine then it's a myth ergo the KJ is not to be believed.
The Mandate for Palestine was not a state, and the citizenship (not nationality) given to it's residents was in the Mandate, not a sovereign state. You can't be this clueless.The mandate for Palestine is a myth, the Palestine nationality law is a myth etc etc.
I don't really care anyway. I know why Israel pulled out of Gaza. I just wanted to see how much bigger of a fool you were willing to make of yourself. Given your grasp of what "Mandatory Palestine" means, your explanation of the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza should have us rolling on the floor.You then ask me, "I’m very curious what you mean about Israel removing settlers from Gaza “because of the cost”. Can you explain?"
Sure, as soon as you stop spreading, either knowingly or unknowingly, disinformation, you and i can discuss these things but at this point i feel that it would be a waste of my time to do so.
