Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and the Kushner family will soon be given a free hand to settle the Arab-Israeli dispute. A Herculean task that has not been achieved by the West’s smartest minds. But Jared Kushner has a plan and that plan involves regional cooperation... unfortunately that sort of cooperation has never looked likely.

The West Bank and eastern Jerusalem were originally in Jordanian hands. Despite formal agreements Jordan denied Jews access to their holiest places in Jerusalem, while destroying many of those sites. The Gaza Strip remained under harsh Egyptian control.

If Kushner’s plan is achieved Trump can look forward to 12 more years. But the Jewish son-in-law boy has an almost impossible task. The West Bank is now established with Jewish settlements and it’s not widely known but 85% is populated by Palestinians who avail themselves of modern Israeli universities and welfare payments. 

Five Arab armies failed when they attacked Israel in 1948 with the aim of destroying the tiny Jewish State. Armistice lines were then drawn, but they weren’t formal borders. They couldn’t be formal because the Arab world, even in defeat, refused to recognise Israel’s existence. 

Despite PLO bleatings, there never was, never has been, and probably never will be, a Palestinian State.

        PLO's Terrorist Yasser Arafat, rumoured to have been assassinated using polonium

The PLO, which has always demanded Israel’s destruction, was established in 1964, three years before the six day conflict that left Jordan, Egypt and Syria licking their wounds at the hands of the tiny Israeli State. 

The PLO was created with the sole aim of obliterating Israel. In 1964 the only “settlement” was Israel itself and under siege from surrounding Arab States. A subsequent Arab Summit Conference in Khartoum declared: “No peace, no recognition, no negotiations with Israel".

Egypt's Gamel Abdel Nasser died trying to unite a disparate Arab world determined to rid                                                                      itself of Israel.

Syria’s continuous attacks grew more frequent in 1965 and 1966, forcing Israeli families to sleep in bomb shelters. Israel repeatedly protested to the UN about the Syrian bombardments but the UN did nothing to stop Syria’s aggression — even an innocuous Security Council resolution expressing “regret” for such incidents was vetoed by the Soviet Union. 

Of course Israel was condemned by the United Nations each time it retaliated. Nothing has changed since.

There are now serious moves afoot to leave the corrupted UN to its own devices, but Australia's Stick Insect will object violently as it gives her a voice from the world stage... but no-one is listening.

It took a mere six days in 1967 to obliterate the better equipped Arab armies who had underestimated Israel’s strength and resolve. They still do underestimate an Israel that could wipe them all from the map if it is attacked by any Arab State today. The hard won West Bank is now in Israeli hands and the sweating Arabs want it back, replete with improvements.

And they want the strategic Golan Heights back where they can again rain rockets down on Israel from 3,000 feet.

Shia Iran is also planning Israel's destruction. But our little Iranian dwarf, Sam Dastyari, is typical of Iran’s bluster. After ten years of fighting a weakened Saddam Hussein, Iran still couldn’t claim one inch of extra land. 

An Obama-supplied path to nuclear weapons for Iran means that Israel, backed by Trump, will attack and destroy them before one can be fired. Unlike Iran, Israel will do what it threatens to do, Trump or no Trump.

                                     Baby faced Adam Scott look-alike, Jared Kushner

But Trump’s poor little son-in-law wants to carve himself a notch in history. It won’t happen, just as it didn’t happen for Kissinger and others who have tried for a lasting settlement.

The truth is that Arab States and their terrorist arms will not accept that Israel should even exist,

... and that’s a hard starting point for a peace deal, even for a Trump.


Bad enough when politicians play war games on paper without daring to identify let aside understand the enemy. And far worse when they leave it to the son-in-law.

The so-called Jewish humans are the most disgusting, filthy, murdering, parasites that have ever existed. I have no particular love of Palestinians, but when I read a recent article my blood boils. That is an innocent child with half her head blown off by some stinking, low-down, cowardly piece of shit Jew, who thought it would be sporting to execute her. These Jews are absolute scum.

Always bear in mind, this is what Jews are actually like. This is how sadistic they are. They are in reality far, far worse than what they even accuse the Germans of being like in WWII. And as we know, Adolf Hitler and the Germans were the good guys and the big Jewish fairytale known as the Holocaust is just that – a fucking enormous load of bullshit. Fucking filthy lying bastards, all of them…..

Anyway you look at this arrogant obnoxious jewish prick he is a murderer and war criminal with blood dripping from his hands


When Malcolm met Benjamin

I wonder if Centrelink would employ him ?

Sit down with a cuppa or two and a packet of bickies and watch this, it is a factual eye opener.

sailor, using big words can give the impression that you are smart or well educated. For that to happen the words must be real.

Stoney.. In answer to your question... you are clearly the jew lover here. You take their book as absolute proof, so much so that you use it as your sole rebuttal weapon against historical facts. Lets just say, either you are a jew lover (and adherent to their holy scripture) or you are too stupid to understand that if you use their book of fiction (misquoted of course) as the sole basis to support your ludicrous argument, then you will look like a jew lover. You choose which one you are... jew lover or fool.

I'm with Billy

"In the days of John Hyrcanus… the [non-Israelite] Edomites became a section of the Jewish people." Article entitled "EDOM," Encyclopaedia Judaica Vol. 6, p. 378 (1971)
The Jews are of Esau (Esau married into the Canaanites – descendents of Ham] and therefore not of Israel or Judah; Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925, vol. 5, page 41.

The Black Hats -
Canaan the son of Ham - took by force Shems' inheritance, [Shem, from whom came the term Semite ] that being the land called Palestine today. Judah married a Canaanite woman and thus except for one pure line beginning with the Tamar/Judah union from whom Christ came, Judah became mixed and degenerate by following Nimrods' [the grandson of Ham] Babylonian pagan idolatry or Baal worship. The priests of Nimrod the founder of Babylon wore black robes.
The Chemarims or Khamarim are the black -robed priests of Baal , who were appointed by the kings of Judah to conduct worship In high places . Chemarims '' Idolatrous Priest '' , comes from The root word Kamar meaning '' to be black '' , which explains the '' idolatrous priest '' wore black garments ( Zephaniah 1 ; 4 ) , which the judges, priests, rabbis and Cohen's wear today ..

………..Edomites are therefore descended from Edom (Esau) whose descendants later intermarried with the Turks to produce a Turco-Edomite mixture which later became known as Khazars. That is, most of today's Jews are descendants of this interbreeding that produced a race called Khazars who had once governed an empire called Khazaria. Furthermore, this hybrid race Edomite/Turk/Khazar who created the Khazar kingdom and who between the seventh and ninth centuries AD, adopted the religion of Judaism. And, it is these Khazar Jews who are the ancestors of the vast majority of today's Jewish people. That is, Edomite/Turk/Khazars are the ancestors of the modern "Jews" including the Torah-true and Zionist Jews who spuriously claim right to the land of Palestine claiming it it is theirs by biblical demands and ancestral rights.
Consequently, the majority of today's Jewish people are known as "Jews" not because they are Judahites and descended from Jacob/Israel but because their Edomite/Turk/Khazar ancestors in their Kingdom of Khazaria adopted the religion of Judaism, called themselves "Jews" and arrogated the Birthright Promises and Bible Covenants belonging to the Israelites, but especially those belonging to the Judahites.
Malachi 1:1-4 prophesies of this controversy, showing the Zionist motives of Esau. Verse 4 says,
4 Though Edom says, “We have been beaten down, but we will return and build up the ruins”; thus says the Lord of hosts, “They may build, but I will tear down; and men will call them the wicked territory, and the people toward whom the Lord is indignant forever.”
This is a prophecy of modern Zionism in the past century. The spirit of Edom has worked within world Jewry, saying, “we will return.” God does not refute this, but says only that “I will tear down.” If Edom had not returned and rebuilt the ruins, God would have nothing to tear down, so the establishment of the Israeli state was inevitable.

The three desert cults are the bane of humanity. They all need to be purged. Stupid ancient camel herder superstitious nonsense. I just do not understand why any educated western falls for any of the fairy tales, let alone try to argue merits of one over the other. Trash it all.

For any of you with lefty friends who believe immigration to the west is the answer to ending world poverty, please forward this oldie but goodie. There's no comeback and it shuts them up. Should be mandatory viewing for politicians too.

BIBI reminds me of when I was working for the Navy on decompression chambers and diving equipment.
BIBS stood for 'Built-In-Breathing System.

In other words an independent way of getting fresh air when all else fails.


Who Is A Palestinian?

During the period of the Mandate, it was the Jewish population that was known as "Palestinians" including those who served in the British Army in World War II.

Jews who might have developed the empty lands of 'Palestine' ... instead died in the gas chambers of Europe

British policy was to curtail their numbers and progressively limit Jewish immigration. By 1939, the White Paper virtually put an end to admission of Jews to Palestine. This policy was imposed the most stringently at the very time this Home was most desperately needed — after the rise of Nazi power in Europe. Jews who might have developed the empty lands of Palestine and left progeny there, instead died in the gas chambers of Europe or in the seas they were trying to cross to the Promised Land.

At the same time that the British slammed the gates on Jews, they permitted or ignored massive illegal immigration into Western Palestine from Arab countries Jordan, Syria, Egypt, North Africa. In 1939, Winston Churchill noted that "So far from being persecuted, the Arabs have crowded into the country and multiplied . . . ." Exact population statistics may be problematic, but it seems that by 1947 the number of Arabs west of the Jordan River was approximately triple of what it had been in 1900.

The current myth is that these Arabs were long established in Palestine, until the Jews came and "displaced" them. The fact is, that recent Arab immigration into Palestine "displaced" the Jews. That the massive increase in Arab population was very recent is attested by the ruling of the United Nations: That any Arab who had lived in Palestine for two years and then left in 1948 qualifies as a "Palestinian refugees".

Casual use of population statistics for Jews and Arabs in Palestine rarely consider how the proportions came to be. One factor was the British policy of keeping out Jews while bringing in Arabs. Another factor was the violence used to kill or drive out Jews even where they had been long established.

For one example: The Jewish connection with Hebron goes back to Abraham, and there has been an Israelite/Jewish community there since Joshua long before it was King David's first capital. In 1929, Arab rioters with the passive consent of the British — killed or drove out virtually the entire Jewish community.

It is now often proposed as a principle of international law and morality that all places that the British and the Arabs rendered Judenrein must forever remain so.

For another example: In 1948, Trans-Jordan seized much of Judea and Samaria (which they called The West Bank) and East Jerusalem and the Old City. They killed or drove out every Jew.

It is now often proposed as a principle of international law and morality that all places that the British and the Arabs rendered Judenrein must forever remain so. In contrast, Israel eventually allotted 17 percent of Mandate Palestine has a large and growing population of Arab citizens.

From Palestine To Israel

What was to become of "Palestine" after the Mandate? This question was taken up by various British and international commissions and other bodies, culminating with the United Nations in 1947. During the various deliberations, Arab officials, spokesmen and writers expressed their views on "Palestine".

"There is no such country as Palestine. 'Palestine' is a term the Zionists invented. . . . Our country was for centuries part of Syria. 'Palestine' is alien to us. It is the Zionists who introduced it." — Local Arab leader to British Peel Commission, 1937

"There is no such thing as Palestine in history, absolutely not" — Professor Philip Hitti, Arab historian to Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry, 1946

"It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria." — Ahmed Shukairy, United Nations Security Council, 1956

By 1948, the Arabs had still not yet discovered their ancient nation of Falastin. When they were offered half of Palestine west of the Jordan River for a state, the offer was violently rejected. Six Arab states launched a war of annihilation against the nascent State of Israel. Their purpose was not to establish an independent Falastin. Their aim was to partition western Palestine amongst themselves.

They did not succeed in killing Israel, but Trans-Jordan succeeded in taking Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem, killing or driving out all the Jews who had lived in those places, and banning Jews of all nations from Jewish holy places. Egypt succeeded in taking the Gaza Strip. These two Arab states held these lands until 1967. Then they launched another war of annihilation against Israel, and in consequence lost the lands they had taken by war in 1948.

During those 19 years, 1948-1967, Jordan and Egypt never offered to surrendar those lands to make up an independent state of Falastin. The "Palestinians" never sought it. Nobody in the world ever suggested it, much less demanded it.

Finally, in 1964, the Palestine Liberation Movement was founded. Ahmed Shukairy, who less than 10 years earlier had denied the existence of Palestine, was its first chairman. Its charter proclaimed its sole purpose to be the destruction of Israel. To that end it helped to precipitate the Arab attack on Israel in 1967.

The outcome of that attack then inspired an alteration in public rhetoric. As propaganda, it sounds better to speak of the liberation of Falastin than of the destruction of Israel. Much of the world, governments and media and public opinion, accept virtually without question of serious analysis the new-sprung myth of an Arab nation of Falastin, whose territory is unlawfully occupied by the Jews.

Since the end of World War I, the Arabs of the Middle East and North Africa have been given independent states in 99.5 percent of the land they claimed. Lord Balfour once expressed his hope that when the Arabs had been given so much, they would "not begrudge" the Jews the "little notch" promised to them.

The Jewish National Home

Travellers to Palestine from the Western world left records of what they saw there. The theme throughout their reports is dismal: The land was empty, neglected, abandoned, desolate, fallen into ruins

Nothing there [Jerusalem] to be seen but a little of the old walls which is yet remaining and all the rest is grass, moss and weeds. — English pilgrim in 1590

The country is in a considerable degree empty of inhabitants and therefore its greatest need is of a body of population — British consul in 1857

There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent [valley of Jezreel] — not for 30 miles in either direction. . . . One may ride 10 miles hereabouts and not see 10 human beings.

For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee . . . Nazareth is forlorn . . . Jericho lies a moldering ruin . . . Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation . . . untenanted by any living creature . . . .

A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds . . a silent, mournful expanse . . . a desolation . . . . We never saw a human being on the whole route . . . . Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country . . . .

Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes . . . desolate and unlovely . . . . — Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad, 1867

Their [the Jews] labors created newer and better conditions and opportunities

The restoration of the "desolate and unlovely" land began in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century with the first Jewish pioneers. Their labors created newer and better conditions and opportunities, which in turn attracted migrants from many parts of the Middle East, both Arabs and others.

The Balfour Declaration of 1917, confirmed by the League of Nations Mandate, commited the British Government to the principle that "His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a Jewish National Home, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object. . . . " It was specified both that this area be open to "close Jewish settlement" and that the rights of all inhabitants already in the country be preserved and protected.

Mandate Palestine originally included all of what is now Jordan, as well as all of what is now Israel, and the territories between them. However, when Great Britain's protégé Emir Abdullah was forced to leave the ancestral Hashemite domain in Arabia, the British created a realm for him that included all of Manfate Palestine east of the Jordan River. There was no traditional or historic Arab name for this land, so it was called after the river: first Trans-Jordan and later Jordan.

By this political act, that violated the conditions of the Balfour Declaration and the Mandate, the British cut more than 75 percent out of the Jewish National Home. No Jew has ever been permitted to reside in Trans-Jordan/Jordan.

Less than 25 percent then remained of Mandate Palestine, and even in this remnant, the British violated the Balfour and Mandate requirements for a "Jewish National Home" and for "close Jewish settlement". They progressively restricted where Jews could buy land, where they could live, build, farm or work.

After the Six-Day War in 1967, Israel was finally able to settle some small part of those lands from which the Jews had been debarred by the British. Successive British governments regularly condemn their settlement as "illegal". In truth, it was the British who had acted illegally in banning Jews from these parts of the Jewish National Home.

The History of Palestine

Thousands of years before the Romans invented "Palastina" the land had been known as "Canaan". The Canaanites had many tiny city-states, each one at times independent and at times a vassal of an Egyptian or Hittite king. The Canaanites never united into a state.

After the Exodus from Egypt — probably in the Thirteenth Century BCE but perhaps earlier — the Children of Israel settled in the land of Canaan. There they formed first a tribal confederation, and then the Biblical kingdoms of Israel and Judah, and the post-Biblical kingdom of Judea.

Israel-Judah-Judea has the only united, independent, sovereign nation-state that ever existed in "Palestine" west of the Jordan River.

From the beginning of history to this day, Israel-Judah-Judea has the only united, independent, sovereign nation-state that ever existed in "Palestine" west of the Jordan River. (In Biblical times, Ammon, Moab and Edom as well as Israel had land east of the Jordan, but they disappeared in antiquity and no other nation took their place until the British invented Trans-Jordan in the 1920s.)

After the Roman conquest of Judea, "Palastina" became a province of the pagan Roman Empire and then of the Christian Byzantine Empire, and very briefly of the Zoroastrian Persian Empire. In 638 CE, an Arab-Muslim Caliph took Palastina away from the Byzantine Empire and made it part of an Arab-Muslim Empire. The Arabs, who had no name of their own for this region, adopted the Greco-Roman name Palastina, that they pronounced "Falastin".

In that period, much of the mixed population of Palastina converted to Islam and adopted the Arabic language. They were subjects of a distant Caliph who ruled them from his capital, that was first in Damascus and later in Baghdad. They did not become a nation or an independent state, or develop a distinct society or culture.

In 1099, Christian Crusaders from Europe conquered Palestina-Falastin. After 1099, it was never again under Arab rule. The Christian Crusader kingdom was politically independent, but never developed a national identity. It remained a military outpost of Christian Europe, and lasted less than 100 years. Thereafter, Palestine was joined to Syria as a subject province first of the Mameluks, ethnically mixed slave-warriors whose center was in Egypt, and then of the Ottoman Turks, whose capital was in Istanbul.

During the First World War, the British took Palestine from the Ottoman Turks. At the end of the war, the Ottoman Empire collapsed and among its subject provinces "Palestine" was assigned to the British, to govern temporarily as a mandate from the League of Nations.
