  1. You need to update your page and get rid of the Parler link as it is useless now. Open an account on Truth social and put up a link to it.
    Love listening to the common sense based, very knowledge filled, interviews with Mr. Hanson. President Trump should appoint him as his ambassador to the UN.

  2. I wish Dr. Hanson wouldn’t keep saying “I don’t understand ….” about things that are intuitively obvious. He doesn’t have any Palestinian friends because THERE ARE NO PALESTINIANS.
    Per Rabbi Michael Barclay:
    There is no historical Palestinian state or people. Over 4,000 years ago, there were small tribes living in Canaan, such as Moabites, Amalekites, etc. There was no Palestine of people or land. Then around 3,200 years ago, the 12 tribes of Israel, united under King Saul into the first kingdom in the region, a Jewish theocracy called “Israel.” That split into the kingdoms of Judah and Israel (both Jewish), which were conquered by the Babylonian empire a little over 2,500 years ago. This became the Persian Empire, which was defeated by Alexander the Great, and Israel was controlled by the Greeks.
    The Greeks were defeated by the Hasmoneans, and Israel once again became a Jewish state about 2,200 years ago. The Hasmoneans were beaten by the Romans, and there followed a series of kingdoms that controlled Israel: Byzantine, Sassanid, Ummayad, Frankish, Christian, and eventually the Mamluk Dynasty, which controlled the region in the 13th-16th centuries. This is the first time there is a governmental Muslim presence in Israel, but again, it is not related to Palestine as a people or nation at all. The Mamluks ultimately were absorbed into the Ottoman Empire, which controlled the region until it was defeated by the British in the 20th century. Nowhere in this 3,000-year history d

    1. Exodus 15:14
      The people shall hear, and be afraid:
      sorrow shall take hold on the INHABITANTS OF Palestina.🤔
      After Israel was free from Egypt, ~1450BCE
      Isaiah 14:29-32
      Rejoice not thou,
      because the rod of him that smote thee is broken:
      for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice,
      and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent…”
      It ain’t over UNTIL it’s over!

  3. Nowhere in this 3,000-year history does Palestine or Palestinians exist or even get discussed. The British created a mandate called “Palestine” on July 24, 1922, which was the first mention of the word in thousands of years.
    So how did this Palestinian issue even start in modern times? In 1948, U.N. Resolution 181 granted statehood to two states: a Jewish one called Israel and an Arab one called Palestine. This is the first time there is a nation or people with the name of Palestine, even though they were in fact all Jordanians. Immediately, five Arab nations attacked Israel, which continued to be attacked repeatedly for the next 15 years but successfully defended her nationhood.
    And now comes the seed that leads to the current support from the left of “Palestine.” In the early 1960s, the Arab coalition was not only physically losing wars, but was considered bullies of Israel in worldwide media. They were the Goliath that kept losing to David. So they hired the public relations firm of Dudley-Anderson-Yutzy in New York (founded in 1909, no longer in business) to change their image in the world. George Anderson told them they needed a “victim,” a group that would be perceived as smaller and even more abused than the Israelis, and the Palestinian cause was born.
    At Anderson’s advice, the Palestinian Liberation Organization was established on May 28, 1964. This is the start date of the “Palestinian cause”: 1964. After the 1967 war, when Israel kept Gaza, the Sinai, the Golan He

  4. At Anderson’s advice, the Palestinian Liberation Organization was established on May 28, 1964. This is the start date of the “Palestinian cause”: 1964. After the 1967 war, when Israel kept Gaza, the Sinai, the Golan Heights, and the West Bank, the concept of the Palestinians as victims became more popular. While ultimately Egypt made a land-for-peace deal with Israel and has kept that peace, the other nations refused to do the same. “Palestine” has always, and continues today, to define itself as “from the River” (Jordan) to the Sea (Mediterranean) and refuses to accept the State of Israel as a neighbor. The Arab schoolbooks in Gaza, the West Bank, and many Arab nations do not even include Israel in their maps as taught to children in 2023.

    1. Thank you for your erudite compendium of the “Palestinian” history. Why this isn’t taught in high schools across the world is baffling? I had never heard about the hired public relations aspect before.

  5. unquestionable outrage & unmitigated horror from civilized human beings of the world ..
    in response to craven savagery of Hamas descended upon the Israeli people, infants & adults

    should we choose to be painstakingly honest with ourselves as Americans ..

    these atrocities shed klieg light transparency highlighting our own fifty year Holocaust inflicted upon the innocent, most vulnerable posterity in utero ..
    under some convoluted narrative of ‘choice’ and ‘privacy’ ..

    an over abundance of hypocrisy to go around ..

    in this present day worship of virtue signaling as the religion dujour

  6. Dr. Hanson ..

    beyond your waymazing stature as a scholar & gentleman, you’re steadfastly courageous and quite refreshing in your commitment to truth & fact ..

    Relentless verbal assaults & foul-mouthed rhetoric notwithstanding, you consistently set an example for us all .. we’re emboldened to stand tall with you & privileged to call you friend
