Dividing Israel and “Palestine” into two unique countries would solve a problem, a famous one, but it would not bring peace to the Middle East. Almost 90 years ago, standing on the shoulders of such anti-Semitic giants as Martin Luther, Adolf Hitler described what he called The Jewish Peril in his book, Mein Kampf. By 1939, sensitivity to “the peril” in Germany had evolved into the need to actually solve The Jewish Problem. Many patriots in the fatherland championed Hitler’s proposed cure; extermination. Among them was Reich Organization Leader, Robert Ley. In March of 1939, Ley explained…
…If the Jew wants to fight, it is fine with us. We have wanted that fight for a long time. There is no room in the world for the Jews any more.” [emphasis added]
Ley was correct.
There was clearly not enough room on earth for Jews then and, almost 70 years after the Holocaust, it appears that the one tenth of one percent of the world’s population now living in Israel on three tenths of one percent of the Middle East’s land mass, also occupies too much space to suit the United Nations and the West.
The proof: hostile and provocative apartment building in Israel!
According to a recent Associated Press release…
Israel retaliated for U.N. recognition of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem by announcing plans to build 3,000 homes for Jews in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, as well as preparations for construction of an especially sensitive project near Jerusalem, known as E-1. The Israeli reprisal has prompted the country’s strongest Western allies to take an unusually strong line with the Jewish state.
The AP article continues…
A senior Abbas aide, Nabil Shaath, said late Monday that “by continuing these war crimes of settlement activities on our lands and stealing our money, Israel is pushing and forcing us to go to the [International Criminal Court].”
Homes for Jews; a modern war-crime.
As I wrote in an earlier post, “I won’t detail Israel’s problems, enemies or threats here, nor will I attempt to make a case for her right to exist. If you are reading this you are well aware. If, additionally, you are one of those who hates Israel and “the Jews” without discernment, it’s unlikely that anything I might say would change your mind.” But I will point to some ironies…
- Those who cite the historical canard, the International Jewish Conspiracy documented in the patently false, Protocols of the Elders of Zion, while protesting against the Rothschilds and other evil Jewish bankers are more than comfortable with the billions of Arab oil dollars thrown at the UN, western governments and the international media almost entirely devoted to the marginalization and eventual immolation of Israel.
- Judaism has never threatened the Pope, did not attack the Twin Towers, does not practice disfigurement and honor killings of women, is not spreading throughout the world with the expressed purpose of converting the world to its beliefs and laws. Judaism is not into rape, waging war behind human shields, beheading, Jihad, Sharia Law and kidnapping. But building apartments…?
- “Historic Palestine” has been a political, anti-Jewish construct since it’s invention by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. The myth of Palestine and the “Palestinian people” began with Hadrian’s renaming (as punishment) of Judea after the Bar-Khochba rebellion in 135 CE.
- “Palestinians” will, they say, negotiate a 2-state solution, but without accepting the other of those state’s right to exist. Israel’s hope to survive is a deal breaker.
- The right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state has been opposed by many intellectuals as “non-egalitarian.” (For example.) These educated and insightful people seem to be saying that egalitarianism demands that Jews live side-by-side in peace with people who, as a matter of faith and practice, wish them dead.
- Israel’s 1967 borders only changed after the entire Arab world coordinated and attacked Israel to annihilate her. They were routed in 6 days. Returning to those borders as a negotiation starting point as suggested by Barak Obama returns Israel to only seven miles wide at one point, and makes it utterly indefensible.
The UN’s (and the world’s) position seems to be:
- we despise you
- we do not want you to live among us as Jews
- it is not “egalitarian” for you to live in your own country as Jews
- let’s move forward, without warlike apartment building, in the full spirit of cooperation from here, ignoring every past failed Israeli concession back to 1948
That seems fair.
The Two-State Solution is not a path to peace, it is the answer to the problem posed by Hitler in Mein Kampf in 1924: How do we rid the world of Jews?
