Myth versus fact versus narrative
In history, what people believe to have happened, or believe is about to happen, is often more important than what really happened. It is at least as important to understand that many people thought Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction as it is to understand that after the fact, no such weapons were found. But despite some uncertainty about every history, we can know with fair precision what really happened, and what was fabricated. The fabrications cannot claim equal recognition with facts as "another point of view." In 1939, the Germans claimed that their invasion of Poland was due to Polish "provocations," a border attack by Polish forces. In fact, the Nazi government faked the entire attack, dressing up dead people in uniforms. The claim is not another legitimate "narrative." The claim that Zionists massacred 500 people in Jenin in April of 2002 is not a "point of view" to be taken into account, any more than are claims that the Holocaust was fabricated, or that no Arabs lived in Palestine 100 years ago, or that Jews and Arabs lived together in Palestine in a paradise of equality prior to the arrival of the Zionists. They are all demonstrably false. Believing doesn't make it so.
