Alhamdulillah, praise be to Allah, and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad .
Humans like to name something they know or achieve, or discover , and they think that by naming something, it will be enough to show some ‘ownership’ or rights of that thing.
But not all what they name is true…
This article is derived from a book written by Sheikh Essa Qodumi : Jewish Terms
The Correct Term: Islamic East
The Jewish Term: Middle East
The term ” Middle East ” emerged as an essential introduction to co-existence with Jews and to make a room for the Jewish Entity in the Arab – Islamic area. This would mean acknowledging and accepting Jewish Entity as a member in the body of Arab countries and Islamic Nation and as a part of that area as well , which gives the Jews several attributes like neighborhood , unity and taking part in decision making !!
The Correct Term: The Jewish Entity
The Jewish Term : The State of Israel
Calling the Jewish Entity by the name ” State of Israel ” is a sort of recognition not only in their state and sovereignty over the land of Palestine but also in their claimed right of existence on that occupied and extorted land . It would further achieve the dreams of the Jews in calling the blessed land of Palestine “the State of Israel”. It would also act as a normalization of the Arab – Moslem citizen in order that he accepts the aggressor’s Entity as a part of the Arab and Islamic Area community and might lead to considering it as a state with sovereignty , laws and respect .
Repeating the term ” State of Israel ‘ in the media aims at making it a habit for Arab – Islamic mind to accept eliminating the name of Palestine and to take it off the map of the world which would result in deep feelings of despair and to accept humiliation and giving in and to accept the reality whatsoever !! even to accept whatever it follows of the rights and legitimacy of a state in terms of procedures and practices .
The Correct Term: Surrendering
The Jewish Term : Normalization
In brief, normalization means:” changing the contingent behavior to a behavior that looks normal thus becoming an integral part of man’s life . This means holding relationships that tend to be normal among people to the extent that it becomes ordinary in mutual acceptance and dealing .
The Correct Term: Palestinian Rights
The Jewish Term: Palestinian Demands
The Jews as demands describe Palestinian rights. By using this term, they want to underestimate Palestinian rights and to have the Palestinians compromise their established rights. So, what is reasonable is turned by them into an unreasonable, postulates have become debatable and rights are subject to consideration.
The Correct Term: Palestinians of 1948 Territories
The Jewish Term: Arabs of Israel
The term Arabs of Israel is used to define the Arab Palestinians who stayed in the territories occupied by the Jews in 1948 . Defining them as such aims at eliminating the name of Palestine from the Zionist Jewish dictionary and substituting it by the term “Israel “. Moreover this expression is used to indicate that Arabs are a minority in the villages and cities of Palestine ,which fell under Jewish occupation in 1948. A further aim is to give the area the mark of Jewish structure which implies an attempt to suggest that Arab Palestinians are a minority that lacks harmony because Palestinian society consists of a group of minorities of different nationalities and religions and that they do not have any common loyalty or target.
The Correct Term: The Land of Palestine
The Jewish Term : The land of Promise
The Promised Land or The Land Of Return(3) or the Land Of Israel are different Jewish names for thin which is the land of Palestine.
The correct term: Buraq wall
The Jewish Term: Wailing Wall
This wall is located at the south eastern part of the wall of blessed Farthest Mosque. Jews call it “Wailing Wall “because it is the remaining – as they claim – part of the alleged Temple . Their rituals and prayers are marked with wailing and lamenting over the alleged glory.
Buraq wall is 50 meters long and 20 meters high . It is considered a part of Islamic Waqf . It is an established fact that Jews had no connection whatsoever to the wall until the 16th century . Until 1519 they used to assemble by the eastern wall of the farthest Mosque near ” Bawabat Al Rahmah ( Gate of Mercy) ” then suddenly they turned to the western wall !!
The Correct Term: Occupied Palestine
The Jewish Term: Judah, Samariah and Galilie
Jews were very good at turning the distorted Torah and mythical Talmud into a book of geography and history to establish the biblical terms and expression in the minds of Jews in order to hold fast to that land .so, they left no stone, plain ,valley or grave without giving it a name that not his real name with the purpose of deluding the world that those names have a religious denotations in their distorted Torah.
The Correct Term : Jewish Occupiers
The Jewish Term: Jewish Emigrants
Emigration (5) in its modern meaning means that someone emigrates from his country as a result of certain circumstances or for personal reasons such as seeking a better life and to improve his position . So, he takes his things and moves from a country to another after obtaining the necessary approval from the country of destination. In the modern times, this should be done legally.
The Correct Term : Jews
The Jewish Term : Israelis
The term Israelis has been used to described the dispelled Jews who came into Palestine after declaring the establishment of a state they called Israel on 14 May1948 .Thus , Jews who live on the land of Palestine had the name” Israeli ” and acquired an ” Israeli ” nationality .The population on the extorted Palestine land was called ” Israelis ” .
The correct term that can describe those extortioners is Jews not Israelis for the following reasons:
