Arab Rejectionism and the Myth of Palestinian Victimization

Freezing Palestinian Myths -Gerald Steinberg

Palestinian myths of victimization have been the major obstacle to peace for more than 60 years.

In place of the myths, Palestinians have to acknowledge that their "suffering" and the refugee problem were the result of the unanimous Arab rejection of UN Resolution 181 - the November 1947 version of the two-state solution. This was followed by military invasions that killed one percent of the Jewish population. The Arab defeat on the battlefield was followed by the entirely fictitious claim to a "right of return" as refugees from illegal wars for which the Arabs themselves were responsible.
