MSNBC, the PEP (Progressive except for Palestine) cable network, stumbled into the glaring light of truth on an October 15 broadcast.

In-house MSNBC guardians of Israel's false narrative must have been on a coffee break when four maps (see above) were displayed, clearly demonstrating modern Israel's theft of Palestine land between 1946 and the present.

Caught with their pants down, or to be a bit more delicate, caught in their unrelenting major theft of Palestinian land, not by some earnest blogger laboring in obscurity on the internet, but by MSNBC, a major cable television network, Israeli narrative protectors exploded into action with the bullying anger of operatives from George Orwell's Ministry of Truth in his dystopian novel, 1984.

Israel's false historical narrative is rarely exposed in all its naked falseness under the bright lights of mainline media. The four maps shown above reveal the dramatic disappearance of Palestinian-owned land into the greedy clutches of the colonial invading power which claimed the name, Israel.

Alison Weir, veteran journalist and tireless worker against the false historical Israeli narrative, wrote a clarifying description of what is a familiar experience to anyone who dares question Israel's manufactured version of history.

What Weir describes in her well-researched, and carefully documented story, demands full attention. (click here for the full story). Backed by the four maps above, Weir explains what happened in real time history.

Weir writes:

"Following an unusually honest report on Israel-Palestine, MSNBC Live backpedaled to Israeli talking points that were both illogical and uninformed. Let us look at what happened.

"During its Thursday, Oct. 15th news broadcast, MSNBC Live broadcast an accurate and revealing image of four maps entitled 'Palestinian loss of land 1946 -- present.' Host Kate Snow commented that the maps showed 'that the land where the Palestinians live has grown increasingly smaller.'

"NBC's longtime correspondent for the area, Martin Fletcher, agreed, saying: 'Absolutely, this is what it's all about; it's about the land. What this map shows you, and it's pretty shocking when you present it in this way, what it clearly shows is that if there is no peace agreement between Palestinians and Israel, more of those green areas, more of that Palestinian land, will be eaten up by Jewish settlements.'

"There was an immediate onslaught against the show by Israelis and Israel partisans, including Israeli media and such pro-Israel organizations as 'Honest Reporting' and Mediate."

Weir continues her description of what Israel's Ministry of Truth does not want exposed:

"The maps correctly depict, as the title makes clear, expropriation of Palestinian land.

"In the late 1800s, Arab Muslims and Christians lived on about 99 percent of the land of Palestine. The Jewish population, mostly Arab too, was a largely urban population and owned about 1 percent of the land.

"Over the coming decades, Jews mostly from Europe and the U.S. immigrated to Palestine in a political movement whose goal was to take over the land for an ethnically-exclusive state. (This movement, called political Zionism, was originally opposed by most Jewish people, including those living in Palestine.)
