Anti-Semitism is Singling Israel Alone for Criticism

 

The old argument of, ‘I am not against Jews, it is the policies of the Israeli Government that I am protesting,’ have a strong stench of anti-Semitism if your group accuses only Israel to protest against. The claims of occupation solely against Israel for having ‘occupied’ Arab lands, and the ‘Palestinians’ are simply Arabs, and are no more deserving of an individual state than are any minority community throughout the globe all entitled to their own nation. The idea of a Palestinian people has solely been concocted for the singular purpose of destroying Israel of its Jewish majority. The proof is beyond their demand for their own state as they also insist that over five-million Arabs be permitted citizenship within Israel in order to vote the Jews from the Government and then take whatever measures they are able to subjugate and then force the Jews to adopt Islam or die just as ISIS has been doing to Christians within their newly declared state, and the Palestinians taking control in Israel would have the identical result within the pre-1967 lines, the 1949 Armistice Lines. Further, if your organization claims they are simply sympathetic to the Palestinian desire for their own homeland being carved from Israel but you have nothing to claim for an independent Basque state, an independent Kurdish state, an independent Islamic state in the north-western province of China or especially the returning of Tibet to their ancestral governance as the Chinese have occupied Tibet since 1951, then they need to widen their demands if they are to be believed as authentically representing oppressed minorities. Is it that you only find problematic any occupation established after June 7, 1967 and before June 14, 1967 as that was a particularly difficult week in human history? The singling out Israel for your Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, the BDS movement, is a ringing clarion call bringing attention to your selective outrage against the Jewish state above and beyond all other disputed territories as having an element of exclusivity that clearly shows the bias as only against Jews and no other groups worldwide. Denying that the Jews have the same rights in their state that is accommodated every other state is anti-Semitism, plain and simple.

 

The first thing one need to consider is the true intentions of those who form the movement against Israel and only Israel. It is interesting that there is no similar outcry from these righteous and so indignant leaders that have no place in their hearts for the Christian’s being slaughtered by ISIS, Boko Haram, and in the remnants of Syria where virtually every force fighting for control of areas of Syria, with the exception of the Kurds, are all denying the Christians of their human rights within their territorial area of control. There is no outcry from your saintly leaders of the BDS movement for the liberation and return of the lands formerly known before the Ottoman conquest as Kurdistan nor do they strike out for the Tibetans whose lands have been repopulated by Chinese forced into the ‘Province of Tibet’ while tens upon tens of thousands of Tibetan Buddhists have been forcibly relocated to other provinces thousands of miles from Tibet in a calculated and meandered onslaught to eradicate their culture and peoplehood. As a Jew who is Jewish only because of Torah which, as the piece of Judaism which was central in the preservation of our civilizations and peoplehood until we were finally allowed to return to most of our ancestral lands, kept our culture, heritage and collective hopes alive for the near twenty centuries of living in exile. In all honesty, if we were to be permitted only the ancestral lands which made up the lands which were the borders of ancient Jewish lands, this would be sufficient and the lands which Israel has been recognized but are not included in those lands could be given to whichever nation may declare their desires of the lands but this solution would also be refused out of hand because the fight against the Israeli occupation defines the occupation as all of the land, every square millimeter, every grain of sand and blade of grass, this is what is defined as occupied because the actual goal is to force the Jews back into being a landless peoples with no nation of our own left to the whims and indifferences of living within borders always ruled by the other and leaving the Jews to the mercies of those others.

 

For an idea on what Jews who follow Torah believe is the Promised Land and what most Jews would be within their rights to expect as compared to the maximalist demands of the lands under King David’s conquest and ruled over by King Solomon one gets somewhat of an idea of the differing ideas which can be mixed into the debate, please see the depictions below as we discuss actual current expectations and desires. The reality is that the Zionists believe the Red area on the right side map minus Gaza as we have disengaged unilaterally and gave these lands to the Palestinian Authority which lost them in a coup to the terrorist entity Hamas which, unsurprisingly, then won an election and have not deemed it necessary to hold another being satisfied with their one man one vote one time democratic rule. This definition of Israel as the Promised Lands currently is a compromise where most Zionists today recognize that the Zionist Congress surrendered lands so the British could form an Arab state for the Arabs who had come into the areas from distances as far as Yemen and southern Egypt and Tunisia seeking employment and to benefit from the Jewish rebuilding of the lands starting around 1880 and increasing since until May 14, 1948 when Israel declared independence, the British boarded their boats and planes and departed and at least six Arab national armies attempted to destroy Israel before she could take control of the lands promised her. Israel lost the Gaza Strip to Egypt and the majority of Judea, Samaria and Benyamin to Jordanian occupations. Jordan attempted to annex the lands they had occupied renaming them the ‘West Bank’ as their historical names were a bit too Jewish for their tastes. The only nations recognizing the Jordanian annexation were Britain, who had hoped to depart leaving Israel as vulnerable as possible such that she would be erased by the Arab armies which stood perched at her borders like vultures readying to devour a carcass as soon as it dies. When the British left and the Jews announced their state it was as if somebody had fired the starting gun for a land grab not unsimilar to the opening of the Oklahoma territory in United States history. Similarly, there were those already within the lands who fought with the invaders as a fifth element which led to some unfortunate necessities in order to preserve the state of Israel. Despite these necessities, the vast majority of the Arabs who desired to remain and live peaceably with the Jews retained their lands and became Israelis. The vast majority of those who lost their lands made an unwise bet by leaving their lands and siding, and often fighting alongside, the Arab forces betting they would annihilate the Jews and they would share in the spoils of Jewish property and also the property of those Arabs who had remained seeing them as traitors to Islam and Arab superiority.

The problem is there are many forces at work over the centuries who desired to keep the Jews as a landless peoples which some even took to the extreme of forbidding Jews residing under their rule from owning land even including under their house or business. Jews were required to have a Christian landowner or a Muslim land owner who leased the lands to the Jews who in turn paid a rental fee and had no argument when the edict came down to expel the Jews from the areas under some Sultans’, Barons’ or Kings’ lands often making such an eviction order so immediate that the Jews had little choice but to pack all they could manage to take with them and set off to seek another lands where they could be similarly subject to the whims of the rulers. Often the Jews brought with them skills which enriched the area economies but a generation later and the new ruler knew nothing of the lands before the Jews came and saw no advantage to retaining the Jews and much to gain as the ruler would steal away much that the Jews were unable to carry with them. There were times the Jews were not permitted cart or mule such that they had to leave all but the pittance they could strap to their backs. But now we have Israel, a safe place that we can escape to when the local ruler gives the order for the Jew amongst them to be spat out. But now those who would disallow Jews to be their neighbors if only that did not appear honorable, not that such will prevent an eviction forever, they not only wish us no place near their lands, they also want to deny us land anywhere. To so many the Jew as the victim is appealing and the Jew as an equal amongst the nations and with an army no less, such to them is an abomination. This is a part of the hatred driving the BDS movement, the take Israeli leaders and IDF commanders before the world courts for crimes against all that is holy, redefined as crimes against humanity and war crimes because the Jews invested millions to protect the people including the Arab Israelis and Christian and Muslims and all other faiths within Israel we spent wealth for systems to counter the rockets and shelters everywhere for their protection and reinforced schools to protect their children. Israel launches seventy-five-thousand dollar anti-missile missiles to intercept a couple of hundred dollar rockets as it saves lives thus the price is bared gladly.

 

Meanwhile Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their friends spend their monies on rockets and fire these rockets while surrounded by children and other innocents. They force people to remain in buildings which Israel has dropped leaflets telling the people to vacate the building as it is to be targeted in one hour. Israel sends SMS messages to cell phones in Gaza warning of these impending attacks. Israel takes these steps because innocent lives matter and matter even more than killing the terrorists who are attempting to murder us. This sounds insane and it is an insane way to fight a war. When Israel has a fighter jet in position to make their bombing run there is also a drone high above usually unseen but it can see and at the other end there is an IDF lawyer watching the video feed from the drone and until he gives the all clear the pilot cannot drop his ordinance. When these lawyers call off the attack due to the threat to innocent Arabs the jet has to take a necessary difficult landing still carrying fully loaded racks with bombs and ordinance in place. Even the observers often are completely flabbergasted and blown away by how Israel hampers themselves in order to not harm innocents, even those on the other side of which a good number would not extend the same to the Israel as they have been raised with a venomous hatred towards all Jews. But why should you take my word, so, just in case you have never heard the testimonies from Former British Army Colonel Richard Kemp describing the efforts the IDF takes in their actions against the terrorists during the war fighting let us present his testimony linked and embedded below.

 

 

 

While we’re viewing videos I found this little gem where CNN anchor Elliot Spitzer using the ‘Arab spring’ and the hopes running across the Middle East for freedom and democracy and a western way of life with everything as pure as the spring rains washing across the lands bring justice and transformation as his justification that Brigitte Gabriel is clueless and had vilely abused and insulted the core of Islamic belief and her warnings of an Islamic threat to the United States and Western civilization is wrong, overblown and completely defunct and devoid of any reality in her message, but we will give Mr. Spitzer a break which is far more than he gave Brigitte or would ever grant me if I were in his sights as for him I am the world human being on the planet, an American who made Aliyah fulfilling my life’s dream living now in Israel and never happier. My biggest crime in the eyes of Elliot Spitzer would be leaving the real promised lands, that was twice, when I made Aliyah and earlier when I moved from a Democrat stronghold to a warmer and more polite climate where Democrats are found largely at the 2K fun run/walks held in midtown Tulsa. So, here is the exchange below from March 9, 2011.

 

 

 

Elliot Spitzer is, as you might have surmised, an ultra-liberal Jew and Democrat apostle who loves to use the ‘name one’ attack which is the retreat of the scoundrel as they know that very often when there are movements one cannot give a name as most of those doing the lion’s share of the damage have remained unnamed such that they can be surveilled by law enforcement in order to uncover their entire network. The best example I can remember was an interviewer talking to a police commissioner about the apparent rise in crime due to expected heated rivalries between two drug rings. The police commissioner claimed that they had suspects and were carrying forward with their investigations and hoped that arrest could be made in the coming weeks or possibly a couple of months. The interviewer asked for the police commissioner to provide some names so as to prove they were investigating and potentially making progress and the police commissioner attempted to decline to reveal names for what he stated were ‘obvious reasons.’ The interviewer was not going to let go and kept demanding names until the police commissioner departed quite flustered and the reporter then turned to the camera and stated something like, ‘And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why our city is in so much trouble and crime is rampant, the police do not even know a single name of who is suspected of being behind any of these shootings.’ Every time I hear an interviewer stressing the ‘give me a name’ I reminded of, we are a polite site so I will limit my commentary, a thick skulled Precambrian life-form.

 

Back to the bad media Israel receives and how that simply feeds the hate Israel blame the Jews firsters. We are seeing one of the fiercest anti-Semitic storms emanating from the White House over the Iran Nuclear agreement. The ferocity with which the President and leftist media have gone after New York Senator Schumer has been vicious. This despite his silence after releasing the news of his choice to vote against the deal, something highly suspicious as Senator Schumer normally has been very active in lobbying people to vote as he prefers, but those efforts have been almost universally in support of White House proposals. All this effort is even stranger as news reports quoting White House sources have assured us that the President has gathered sufficient support to prevent an overriding of his veto once the legislation passes against the Iran Nuclear agreement. Additionally, there have been the linking Republican opposition to be ideological and an extension of their hatred of President Obama and is very similar to the hardliners in Iran who also oppose the deal. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be any hardliners opposing the deal in Iran where it had mostly been celebrated and the P5+1 Western nations ridiculed as inept and weak, completely folding before Iranian pressures. There have also been accusations that any voting down of the deal will be due simply to the unending and vicious assault from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and other right wing and Zionist extremists in Israel which is going to lead to even further isolation for Israel after the Iran deal is finalized in the coming weeks. There have been rumors that some of the pressure on Democrat lawmakers in the House and particularly in the Senate have been pressured by claiming that they do not want to appear unpatriotic and opposing the President. The onslaught on Israel, Senator Schumer and rising tides of anti-Semitism entering into politics and political discourse has raised some troubling questions. This has also led to more threats to bring charges against Israel in international courts and bring Israeli military and political leaders to trial for crimes against humanity, in particular against Arabs in Gaza or Judea and Samaria. There has been a petition circulating in Britain for the arrest and trial for crimes of various international crimes of Prime Minister Netanyahu when he makes a state visit in the coming days. One can only wonder how much longer before even Israeli citizens will be wary of traveling outside her borders for fear of charges being leveled against them simply because they are Israelis. As these political and social pressures which have been growing exponentially over time, how much longer before simply being Jewish, not even necessarily an Israeli or even a supporter of Israel, becomes a liability and eventually a threat to these individuals? There have been increasing assaults on Jews both inside and even more so outside of Israel. Where will this increased hatred lead and how much of a threat should it be considered. If history is any measure, then Israel is essential to the survival of the Jewish People as a safe zone unto which they will be able to escape. That too is another reason that the San Remo and ensuing promises must be honored and this must be demanded leading to the realization of Israeli borders meeting the promised borders from the British and the League of Nations as depicted below.

 

Map of the lands promised to the Zionist Congress and inviolable and sacrosanct for all time by Great Britain and the League of Nations as an addendum to the Mandate System which makes this promise also enforceable by the United Nations and considered equal to a treaty through Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. This was also considered as an element incorporated to the San Remo Conference which is also applicable in modern times.
