All anyone needs to know about the Middle East conflict is that the Jews want peace and the Arabs don’t, because the Arabs hate Jews for religious reasons and they want them dead.

Politics, territory – these are just excuses. Whenever I make this point it always seems to annoy the right sort of people, so I thought I might as well do it again. If you’re one of these people, then you’ll likely be a supporter of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign that has been so comically ineffective because the world depends on Israeli technology, and that’s where the money is, not oranges and avocados. If you support BDS, will you boycott the chip in your phone or computer, or is it just Israeli fruit and vegetables that you have a moral problem with?

Maybe you’re one of the people who feel entitled to shout down Israeli speakers in universities, or to disrupt concerts and sports events that other people have paid money to enjoy. Or perhaps you campaign for the boycott of Israeli academics, to block the free exchange of information and understanding. All this is on the same moral level as book burning, and if you’re a part of this movement, you’re a part of that. Also, the relentless focus solely on Israel that ignores the world’s real human rights violators tells us that this is an anti-Semitic movement, and if you’re a part of it, you’re a part of that, too.

If Israel was a Christian or a Buddhist country there wouldn’t be any BDS campaign, and everyone knows it, just as there isn’t any BDS for Tibet, a country invaded and culturally raped by the Chinese, but then the Chinese aren’t Jews. No BDS for Saudi Arabia treating women like livestock because the Saudis aren’t Jews, which is lucky for them because, if they were, they’d have to ban themselves from entering their own country. How inconvenient. Crude Islamic Jew hatred has permeated the Middle East conflict from day one, yet its influence is always carefully omitted from all political analysis.

Any doctor who diagnosed an illness as ineptly and dishonestly would deserve to be struck off and prosecuted. Palestinian leaders have had several chances for a two state solution and they have always rejected it because they don’t want a two state solution, and they don’t care about the suffering of their people. They want all Jews out of there, or dead. The leader of Hezbollah is on record as saying that he won’t be happy until every Jew on earth is dead. Once you realise that this is the position then, whatever you think of Israeli security measures, your moral standpoint has to change.

We know that if the Arabs were to lay down their weapons they could have peace and prosperity for all their people, and the Israelis wouldn’t need to build barriers or do anything else the world disapproved of. They could simply get on with what they do best, technological innovation, making life better for all of us, including Arabs. On the other hand, we know that if the Israelis were to lay down their weapons they would be massacred – men, women and children alike.

The Arabs are even happy to put their own children in the firing line to attack Jews, they hate them so much. And this hatred comes directly from their religion. It isn’t politics or territory that causes a mother to celebrate the death of her child. Only religion can do that, and one religion in particular, the one that’s insisting on the right of return – to the 7th century. Just look at the mess they’ve made in Gaza, which is now a hardcore Islamic hell hole. The Israelis used to be in Gaza, but they gave it up for peace. They uprooted thousands of settlers and gave the land to the Arabs for peace. And what did they get? They got war, of course.

Gaza immediately became a launching pad for hundreds of Iranian rockets aimed at Israeli women and children by people hiding behind their own women and children – a double war crime, ignored by the West, like all Arab war crimes. That’s what the Israelis got when they gave up Gaza, and it’s what they’ll get if they’re ever stupid enough to give up the West Bank. Israel needs to exist because there needs to be a Jewish state. Humanity has proven conclusively over many centuries that it cannot be trusted not to persecute Jews. Jew hatred seems to be written right into our DNA because it just keeps coming back.

Any Jew who thinks the Holocaust could never happen again is a fool. There are plenty of people on this earth who would love to see it happen again, and many of them live in the countries around Israel. When Arab armies have attacked in the past they have bragged in advance about committing genocide, and they’ve still been bragging about it as they were getting their sorry arses deservedly kicked again and again. People who want to boycott Israel have no idea what it’s like to live on a thin strip of land surrounded by people who want to wipe out your entire population, who have repeatedly tried to do so in the past, and failed, and who will continue trying until they succeed, which is likely to happen, roughly, never, while we in the West keep paying for it. What would you do if you were the Israeli prime minister?

How would you deal with people who want you and your entire population dead? I know what I would do, and I wouldn’t give a damn about world opinion. As for UN resolutions, I would use them to light my cigars. I don’t actually smoke cigars, but I would take it up for that reason, I think it’s just so important.

Because this is a war of crude religious hatred by Muslim Arabs against Jews, and the Jews have to win every time. The Arabs only have to win once for the world to see another Holocaust, and to stand by once again watching it happen. That’s why I support Israel, and that’s why, if you have an ounce of humanity, you, too, should support Israel, whatever your political persuasion.

    În legătură cu nişte evenimente recente am recitit articolul interesant de mai sus şi am constatat cu această ocazie că el nu a fost comentat la vremea publicării sale.

    > Palestinian leaders have had several chances for a two state solution and they have always rejected it because they don’t want a two state solution, and they don’t care about the suffering of their people.

    Reacţia mea a fost că dacă liderii palestinieni nu vor de fapt două state şi nu le pasă de suferinţa propriei lor populaţii, atunci ar fi bine de căutat altceva, care să îmbunătăţească prezenta stare de lucruri.

    Iată că aflăm din presă că noua administraţie americană nu se mai cramponează de ideea că soluţia a două state este unica posibilă, aşa cum o face UE şi mulţi alţii.

    For decades successive US governments have backed a two-state solution – the idea of establishing an independent Palestinian state that lives side-by-side with Israel.

    But on Tuesday, an unnamed senior White House official suggested the US would support any form of final peace deal reached between Israel and the Palestinians, retreating from its long-term insistence of a two-state formula.

    „A two-state solution that doesn’t bring peace is not a goal that anybody wants to achieve,” the official said, speaking anonymously.

    „Peace is the goal, whether that comes in the form of a two-state solution if that’s what the parties want, or something else if that’s what the parties want.”

    Pe scurt, un oficial american cu rang înalt a sugerat (în preajma viitoarei întâlniri Trump – Netanyahu – vm) că SUA vor sprijini orice formă a unei înţelegeri între Israel şi Palestinieni, renunţând la insistenţa îndelungată asupra formulei de două state. El a spus:

    Pacea este scopul, fie că ea vine sub forma unei soluţii cu două state, dacă aşa o vor părţile, sau altceva dacă aceasta este ceea ce îşi doresc aceste părţi.

  • Victor Manta: (16-2-2017 la 22:12)

    Preşedintele SUA Donald Trump și prim-ministrul israelian Benjamin Netanyahu, aflat în vizită în SUA, au refuzat să sprijine soluția a două state ca rezultat preferabil al discuțiilor viitoare de pace israelo-palestiniene, abandonându-se astfel ceea ce a fost piatra de temelie a eforturilor de pace conduse de SUA timp de două decenii.

    Organizația Națiunilor Unite și Liga Arabă au dat o declarație comună, la o zi după întâlnirea Trump – Netanyahu, în sprijinul înființării unui stat palestinian, ceea ce reprezintă un dezacord cu președintele Donald Trump, care spune că este treaba israelienilor și palestinienilor să se pună de acord cu privire la forma unei soluții definitive.

    După o întâlnire la Cairo, secretarul general al ONU Antonio Guterres și şeful Ligii Arabe, Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, au spus că sunt de acord că soluția a două state este „singura cale de a se ajunge la o soluţie completă şi justă pentru cauza palestiniană”.


    Poziţia anti-israeliană şi pro-palestiniană a fostului preşedinte Obama şi rezoluţia anti-israeliană de la ONU, ce a fost adoptată în ultimele zile ale vechii administraţii, şi-au primit răspunsul în întâlnirea Trump – Netanyahu.

    De aici încolo le va fi mai greu celor care adoptă poziţii partizane şi inflexibile să pună beţe în roate unor viitoare convorbiri de pace între părţile direct implicate, prin sprijinirea unor condiţii prealabile inacceptabile, precum şi a unor idei vechi şi fixe.
