The Forth quote is more of the same from you and the Israel haters:-<quoted text>
Qumsiyeh’s paraphrase leading up to the quote is pure fabrication. As noted by Efraim Karsh, Professor and Head of the Mediterranean Studies Program at King's College, University of London:
"Herzl's diary entry makes no mention of either Arabs or Palestine, and for good reason. A careful reading of Herzl's diary entries for June 1895 reveals that, at the time, he did not consider Palestine to be the future site of Jewish resettlement but rather South America."
Furthermore, by omitting key parts of Herzl’s diary entry, Qumsiyeh also misrepresents the meaning of Herzl’s comment. Herzl wrote of finding employment for the locals in other countries; of buying their property–only from those willing to sell and for more than the owners would have expected–and then keeping the properties for Jews; and of respectfully tolerating and protecting those of other faiths.
A more complete version of Herzl’s diary entries that day follows, with some of the significant omissions by Qumsiyeh underlined:
"When we occupy the land, we shall bring immediate benefits to the state that receives us. We must expropriate gently the private property on the estates assigned to us. We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it any employment in our country. The property owners will come over to our side. Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and circumspectly. Let the owners of immovable property believe that they are cheating us, selling us things for more than they are worth. But we are not going to sell them anything back.
It goes without saying that we shall respectfully tolerate persons of other faiths and protect their property, their honor, and their freedom with the harshest means of coercion. This is another area in which we shall set the entire old world a wonderful example....
Estate owners who are attached to their soil ... will be offered a complete transplantation–to any place they wish, like our own people....If this offer is not accepted either, no harm will be done.... we shall simply leave them there ...."
ORION ANOTHER CLEAR EXAMPLE OF SOMEONE POSTING NUMEROUS POSTS EITHER FALSE OR TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT. IT IS SAD THAT THE ANTI-ISRAEL SIDE OF THIS DEBATE CANNOT SEEM TO FOCUS ON THE REAL THINGS HAPPENING, INSTEAD CHOOSING TO FOCUS ON THE BS.
