Is There An Arab Intellectual?

As found at EOZ, from a Jordanian newspaper Ad Dostour:

Dr. Fadel al-Rubaie denied any relationship of any kind between the Torah and Palestine, stressing that the names, places and events that came in the Torah are Yemeni names and locations, and some still exist even today.

He denies strongly that Joshua Ben-Nun had crossed the Jordan River to Jericho, and inscriptions and figures available indicate that Joshua Ben-Nun actually traveled to the land of Yemen. This was all said in a lecture given by Dr. Rubaie on Tuesday evening in the Jordanian Writers Association Forum moderated by Dr.. Hisham Ghassib...He stressed that Jerusalem is not Jerusalem, and Jews have no trace in the Palestinian territories, and if there is a housing in Palestine from the Jews it is from the sons of the Arab tribes that migrated from Arabian Peninsula...Israel went to revive the Hebrew language, originally a Yemeni dialect.

The lecture included a heavy presence of intellectuals and other interested members.

After you've stopped laughing, think about this:

is there truly an Arab intellectual?

Remember my inventivity theory?

No, not  theory of inventive problem solving developed by the Soviet inventor and science fiction author Genrich Altshuller and known as TRIZ, the Russian abbreviation. He set out three primary findings of his research.

The first is that problems and solutions are repeated across industries and sciences, the second that patterns of technical evolution are also repeated across industries and sciences, and the third and final primary finding is that the innovations used scientific effects outside the field in which they were developed. In the application of TRIZ all these findings are applied to create and to improve products, services, and systems.

No, mine is different.

I state:

I use the term "inventivity" to note the Arab propensity to create an artificial nationalist conceptualization of themselves and the term "disinventivity" I employ to characterize the Arab habit of fictionalizing and denying any historical Jewish presence in the Land of Israel either by simple non-recognition or by 'adopting' sites, locations and events as "Palestinian", which I also call Palestinianism.

So, there you have it.
