For this purpose the invaders have constructed a narrative the central theme of which is,
In line with this story, since 1947-48 the true believers in this Ashkenazim scheme have driven hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their farms, homes and businesses; they have killed and imprisoned thousands more; and they currently keep 3.5 million survivors and their offspring in two open air prisons - the Gaza Strip and shrinking portions of the region known as the West Bank of the Jordan River.
The followers of this
Ashkenazim scheme barely tolerate the
presence of 1.25 million descendents of the original Palestinian inhabitants
of the land in Israel. Meanwhile, the subscribers to a scheme called
Eretz Yisrael (or Greater Israel), work
toward the eventual expulsion of all non-Jews from the territory that the
Old Testament of Christendom, also known as the Torah of Judaism, says God
promised to Abraham and his descendents.
The reality is that the nominally Jewish (at least by religious affiliation) and the nominally Arab (meaning non-Jewish) peoples of the region are about equal in number. In the nature of things, however, the Arabs, threatened on all sides by poverty, confinement, expulsion or extinction, have a relatively high birthrate.
The Ashkenazim and their followers, nominally
including the indigenous Palestinian Jews, are more comfortable, less
threatened and less fertile. In fairly short order, barring a catastrophe,
the Palestinians will outnumber the Jews. That is the nearby reality facing
the Zionists. A Jewish state with a majority of Palestinians is simply not
The report does not question Israel's right to attack Gaza, only its excesses in doing so, but it does not concede any Hamas right to attack adjacent areas of Israel. The report also bemoans the continued imprisonment of one Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, while failing to mention the 11,000 or so Palestinians in Israeli prisons.
A fair weighting of Israeli actions in Gaza
would put Israel's cast lead on one side and a few Palestinian pebbles on
the other, but Goldstone himself, a highly respected South African Jew,
would know better than most how difficult it is to achieve real balance in
this situation. Meanwhile, the President of the United States, in a message
to world Jews on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah, has rededicated
himself to the security of Israel without ever mentioning Palestine.
They are proceeding rapidly on two fronts.
The underlying tragedy of it all is that ancient
communities, the physical evidences of their past, and their traditional
populations are all being erased in a Zionist effort to create the
narrative of a Jewish state. These are not mere acts of ethnic
cleansing - a war crime anywhere else on earth; they are systematic
efforts to erase a culture and the evidence of its history - which is a
crime against all of human society.
International media seem locked on providing an Israel-centered and trivial display of these events. One that is only slightly less trivial than the apparent efforts of the Obama team to achieve some visible political success by stopping settlement expansion, even for a few months.
The problem is not really about interrupting the spread of Israelis into Palestinian territory. That would be simple if the Israeli extremists were prepared to accept defined boundaries for Israel and leave the rest of the land to its rightful owners. Settlements are the most visible manifest of the Greater Israel dream. They have been its mode of achievement since the first day, and they proceed on the clear appreciation of Israelis on the move that there are no intervening boundaries.
Israel simply has not agreed to any permanent boundary around its already illegally acquired part of Palestine, because that would bring the whole show to a defined halt. A temporary halt in building or expanding settlements is simply no substitute for Israeli acceptance that their state is bounded like any other and they must get used to living on the land within those bounds.
That alone would be a major legal concession by
the Palestinians, because the Israelis stole the land in the first place.
Treatment of that letter in comments of politicians and media stories have suggested that with its creation the ownership of lands in Palestine was simply unhooked from traditional rules of land title. Nobody, so far, has raised the obvious fact that George W. Bush had no legal right to convey a single square inch of Palestinian land to an Israeli, unless, of course, he was acting, by consent, as the agent of a Palestinian landowner and the owner received appropriate compensation.
The tragedy of this situation is that nobody
seems prepared to stand up for the rights of the Palestinians. Virtually any
place on earth other than Palestine, taking a piece of land in the Israeli
manner would be cause for immediate and clear-cut legal rebuttal, if not a
The rest of the world, where land ownership is
bounded by rigorous rules, does not object or raise issues of law and
fairness. This means basically that the world will tolerate Zionist empire
building and will allow deliberate violation of the rights of the
Palestinian people to achieve it.
The leading Jews who are pressing the case are the Ashkenazim, who are not Semites.
There are about ten million people in the ancient Palestine territory, and they are about equally divided between Israelis and Palestinians. In simple human terms, are the rights of the Jewish side of this population greater and more important than the rights of the Palestinian side of it? Israeli words and actions often say so, but should the rest of the world agree?
These are issues that cannot be resolved by tinkering with settlement building, expansion or maintenance.
The real questions are:
Any answer other than yes would violate
basic human rights and the principles of international law. One cannot in
good conscience fail to recognize this reality and respond to it without
None of that would be simple, but it would be about time.
