Quotation from Golda Meir “There were no such thing as Palestinians ...They did not exist” — June 15 1969

Prime Minister of Israel, the Palestinians have never existed.

Author : Thematics :
" There were no such thing as Palestinians. When was there an independent Palestinian people with a Palestinian state? It was either southern Syria before the First World War, and then it was a Palestine including Jordan. It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist. "
