US/Israeli Relations

US Congress in 1922 resolution recognized Jewish dominion over all of Palestine: ”If the Arabs don’t like it, move”…….


This is what the Israelis will some day be forced to do, to those Arabs only who refuse to live under Jewish rule, tell them to get the hell out.

Israel and US puzzle pieces

“We cannot solve our problems by making the same failed assumptions and repeating the same failed strategies of the past. All challenges demand new approaches.” — President Donald Trump


This day has been long overdue. In fact, the U.S. initially recognized the Jewish people’s right to sovereignty over the entirety of the land west of the Jordan River, including Jerusalem, 95 years ago. But endless threats of the “Arab street” has deterred them from following through with this commitment … until President Trump.

The fact that he is willing to break the same old paradigm of putting “Arab street” concerns above our interests and doing what’s right is a very positive quality that will hopefully bear fruit on other foreign and domestic policies as well.

There never was an Arab Palestinian state in the Holy Land and all the land west of the Jordan River was originally earmarked for the Jewish state under the Balfour Declaration exactly 100 years ago. That plan was adopted by the Allied powers and the League of Nations in 1920 and 1922. As I wrote last year:


The only binding resolution of international law, a resolution which has never been countermanded to this very day, is the July 1922 Mandate for Palestine. Adopted by the League of Nations, that resolution recognized the “historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.” It called for the creation of a Jewish national homeland anywhere west of the Jordan River.


On Sept. 21, 1922, President Warren Harding signed H. J. Res. 322, which formally adopted the Mandate for Palestine as official U.S. policy. The resolution recognized Jewish dominion over all of Palestine (which was a Jewish, not Arab term, harkening back to the days of Roman emperor Hadrian) so long as they recognized “the civil and religious rights of Christian and all other non-Jewish communities” and ensured that “the holy places and religious buildings and sites in Palestine shall be adequately protected.”


The committee report from the House Foreign Affairs Committee recognized the God-given rights to the land and the fact that Jews were already rehabilitating the conditions of the people living there from the “wanton and deplorable policy of desolation systemically carried out by its rulers, the Turks, for centuries.” Observed the report: “What was once the land of milk and honey, has become, through misrule and oppression, a devastated and sparsely settled land.”


It was quite evident that the House committee blamed the Turks for the dysfunction and oppression — and viewed the creation of the Jewish state not just as a biblical fulfillment and a place of refuge for persecuted European Jews, but as the only means of preserving democratic rights for everyone.


Congressman Frank Appleby, R-N.J., spoke on the floor and noted that for over 2,000 years no other nation or people claimed the land as their homeland. Despite the prevailing isolationist sentiment among the politicians during that era, they unanimously and passionately spoke of the need to recognize Palestine as the land of the Jews for purposes of justice, liberty, and humanity.
