Ayoon Wa Azan (A Khazari Thief).

Byline: Jihad El-Khazen

Who has the rightful claim to the land of Palestine? It is the Palestinians that own the whole land from the river to the sea. It is certainly not owned by the Ashkenazi Jews of Europe, the Khazari Jews, the 12 tribes of Israel, or even the thirteenth tribe.

I do not believe the Torah's account of the Jewish entry into Palestine. I do not believe it even if it acknowledges that the Jews, led by Joshua Bin Nun after the death of Prophet Moses in Sinai, entered Palestine through the Palestinian inhabited city of Jericho. Nor do I believe that God parted the overflowing Jordan River in order for the Israelites to cross over, and that the Lord commanded that seven priests should blow seven trumpets of rams' horns with all the people shouting a great shout until the walls of Jericho fall down flat. And I certainly do not believe that the Lord has allowed an inhabited city and its population to be slaughtered by the Jews who "Utterly destroyed everything in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword."(Book of Joshua, 6:21)

Joshua had sent two spies who stayed at the house of a prostitute named Rahab. Of all the city's inhabitants, only she and her family were spared.

Cutting short through three thousand years of an alleged history, I get to Matilda Krim and to her role in contemporary events.

The most authoritative reference on the subject is "1967: And the Country Changed its Face", a book by Tom Segev, which was published in Hebrew. I read a critical review and a summary of the book, together with other related studies, most important of which was an article written by Donald Neff, entitled "Lyndon Johnson Was First to Align U.S. Policy with Israel's Policies".

In short, Lyndon Johnson was the president credited with establishing America's strong ties with Israel at the expense of his country's relations with the Arab World. He was surrounded with a large group of prominent Jews, such as Arthur Goldberg, John Roche, the Rostow brothers - Walt and Eugene, Ben Wattenberg, and Abe Fortas. From outside the administration, however, the banker Abraham Weinberg as well as Arthur Krim, a Hollywood entrepreneur, and his wife Matilda, were even closer to him and more influential.

Johnson's White House daily diary mentions that this couple were present along with others at a dinner on 17/6/1967, where Johnson read a speech he was going to deliver two days later, accepting comments and suggestions beneficial to Israel.

According to Segev, Matilda Krim used to visit Johnson in the White House unaccompanied, but with her husband's knowledge. On the morning of June 5 1967, the president knocked on the door of room 303, where he found her in her sleeping gown and informed her that the war had started.

She was Johnson's mistress, something which she denied, as expected. Yet, with her background of service for the Irgun gang, she worked with her husband and the Jews of the administration on making every single American decision in favor of Israel and against the Arabs up to this day.

From Rahab to Matilda, I find that those who lied to God will not hesitate to lie to people, and that is how it came to pass that Polish, Russian, Moldavian, and German Jews lay claim today to the land of Palestine.

The reader and I both know that they are nothing but thieves. I will stop at what I already mentioned about religious myths and modern history, and will continue with what is firmly established. To respond to their claims, I chose the poems of al-Nabighah al-Dhubyani, whose verses delight, when heard, and support my argument in a manner better than any historian or history itself would.

We all know that al-Dhubyani was a favourite poet of al-Nu`man ibn al-Mundhir, known as Abu-Qabus, that the King of al-Hirah became angry with him because of some envious people's betrayal, and that al-Nabighah took refuge in the courts of the Ghassanid kings in ancient Syria, which included parts of Lebanon and Palestine. There, he put together his famous I'tizariyat (Apologies), and remained there until Nu'man ibn Mundhir forgave him and took him back for their last days.

In the Ghassanid kingdom, al-Nabighah praised Amr ibn al-Harith the younger with a wonderful eulogy. It began with the famous verses that we memorized in secondary school. But to further my point I chose from this poem some verses with a historical nature, as well as two beautiful verses which are not related to the historical subject at hand. In these poetic verses of praise of the Ghassanids, al Nabighah mentions that their home is that of God, meaning Jerusalem, the home of prophets, and that their religion is righteous because they are Christian. He also mentions the pleasant scent of their garments, the Christian Palm Sunday or the Sunday before Easter, and talks about girls in white robes serving the Ghassanid Kings.

There is some disagreement among historians about the exact dates of the birth and the death of al-Nabighah, but all of them seem to think that he lived until a few years after the start of the seventh century. However, he was not a contemporary of the rise of Islam in 610 AD. It is also clear from his poetry that it was the Arabs inhabited Jerusalem and Syria even before the Islamic conquests. That is because it was their country, as was Iraq.

I also found an elegy by al-Nabighah for Al-Nu'man ibn Harith Al-Ghassani, in which he says that Arabs, Turks and Persians held high regard for Al Nu'man but he does not mention any Jews inhabiting the Levant, particularly not the Golan, where the Ghassanid kings lived. But today, a Khazari thief from Europe claims that Palestine is in fact nothing but Israel, when Israel has never been proven to exist before, or announces that he will never leave the Golan Heights, which were unknown to the Jews until the day they became an infliction on us: i.e. this very day.
