>>1509950>Israel (including Palestine)
Just say fucking Israel.
Friendly reminder that the use of the word "Palestine" instead of "the Levant" increased by 6000% in British newspapers after 1945, when British anti-Semites realized that they could no longer openly oppose a Jewish nation after the concentration camps were made public knowledge and anti-Semites were equalized with Nazi collaborators (who were being executed in droves at the time, even nobles and businessmen).
So cooperating with American magnates who were eyeing the oil reserves in the Middle East and realizing that a country with Soviet, German and American immigrants for brainpower would quickly lock it out of the US' sphere of influence, decided to stuff a bunch of nomadic Arabs whose yearly route through the desert passed through historical Israel (at the time arid, inhospitable and in general uninhabited) with myths of ancient brilliant Palestine.
And to this day, those Arabs are being used as a free army against Israel by mainly the US, which also pours money into the right-wing Israeli government. The war continues, oil prices are kept down, the arms and defense contracting lobbies make constant money and Israel looks like the villain for people who'd otherwise realize that the corruption is within their own government.
It's not forbidden to look at the facts in front of your eyes, instead of being contrary for the sake of being so.
