Palestinians believe that lying about history will lead to peace.
Their definition of peace is very different than the Western definition of peace however.
In the West, including Israel, peace means people of different backgrounds, philosophies, ideologies, creeds, races, religions, belief systems, sexual orientations et. al. living in tranquillity and harmony together, free from violence and strife and disturbance…it means that people aren’t fighting one another and neither are countries…it means the absence of war.
Because they universally believe in and practice Islam peace for Palestinians means submission to the will of God (Allah) and his messenger (Muhammad). As Islamists, believers, they also believe it can only exist when everyone submits, when everyone believes in and practices Islam and lives their lives according to Sharia, Islamic law…as Islamists, believers, they also believe that it is the duty and responsibility of every Islamist, every believer, every Palestinian, to make that happen, through deception, violence or any other means necessary because that mandate comes straight from Allah through his messenger Muhammad. As long as there are non-believers about then there is no peace, period.
So, to the Israelis peace means tranquillity, harmony, living in safety and security with their Palestinian neighbours while maintaining the Jewish, free, democratic, pluralistic nature of Israel. To the Palestinians peace means conformity (forced conformity at that), that everyone, everyone, living in Israel has to submit to the will of God (Allah) and his messenger (Muhammad), that everyone there has to become an Islamist and live their lives according to Sharia, Islamic law, and that peace as Islam defines it and as they define it will not exist there until they make it happen, by whatever means necessary.
Two entirely different definitions.
Two entirely contradictory, mutually exclusive definitions.
Palestinians definitely believe that lying about history (and virtually everything else too for that matter) will lead to peace as Islam and they define it, which is why they do it all the time and do so much of it and why you can’t really believe a word they say.
That much is certain.
It is also certain that every other Islamist, every other believer anywhere in the world, believes that lying will lead to peace between them and non-believers…peace as Islam and they define it…non-believers being Christians, Jews, Hindus, Americans, Australians, Brits, Canadians, the French, Germans, Italians, Russians, Scandinavians and everyone else who doesn’t submit to the will of God (Allah), to Sharia, to Islam.
Which is why they do it all the time and do so much of it and why you can’t really believe a word they say either.
Taqiyya and Kitman anyone.
What are Taqiya and Kitman you ask?
Islam permits lying by believers to non-believers and is in fact the only major religion with a well developed canon sanctioning this. Lying to non-believers takes one of two forms in Islam, taqiyya or kitman. Taqiyya is lying or deceiving by saying something which isn’t true and kitman is lying or deceiving by omission, by telling only part of the truth and withholding the rest. Both come from Allah and the Koran and may be used in a wide variety of circumstances, one of them being to gain the trust of non-believers to make them weaker and more vulnerable prior to defeating them, another being to coerce or force them to comply with any of Islam’s myriad imperatives. Like Islamic peace, not Western peace, Islamic peace. Taqiyya and kitman have been used extensively by believers throughout Islam’s history to deceive non-believers and spread the rule of Islam and Islamic law, just like they are using it today.
Just like the Palestinians are using them today.
Like I said, you can’t really believe a word they say.
