“Though anti-Zionism formed a core principle of pan-Arab solidarity since the 1920s — it is easier, after all, to unite people through a common hatred than through a shared loyalty — its invocation has almost always served as an instrument for achieving the self-interested ends of those who proclaim it.” — Efraim Karsh, from ‘Justice for Palestine’
It would appear, as Prof. Karsh points out, that Arabs can unite only through hatred of the Jews. No measure of peace talks or “land for peace” for them — only hatred of the Jews, all Jews everywhere, and only the negation of the State of Israel from the predominantly Muslim Middle East will persuade them to cease from their violent ways.
The Arab Muslim’s war against the “Zionist entity” is the only logical war for the Arab Muslim when one considers that this war is based primarily on a religiously motivated hatred of the Jew, and has nothing whatsoever to do with the State of Israel’s transgressions of “international law,” real or imagined.
Keep in mind that those who are flaunting these international laws are the same belligerents giving podium to the Muslim Middle East’s Islamic dictatorships that are bent on Israel’s destruction. Their hatred of the Jew is not a mere grievance about a victorious Israeli Army displacing the so-called “Palestinian people” from their homes and villages, but rather about an imperialistic Islamic protocol being implemented to deny the Jewish people the validity of their ancient history in the Land of Israel.
Consider also that these same international laws have become nothing more than modern day Nuremberg Laws, in that they are propagated by the UN for the sole purpose of profiling (read “yellow star”) and publicly inculpating the State of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide. They are invoked, comparatively speaking, less than never for condemning and keeping in check the real tyrannical governments of the world, most of which just happen to be purveyors of the Muslim faith. As Prof. Karsh articulates so well: “The truth of the matter is that since anti-Semites have never really distinguished among Zionists, Israelis and Jews (notwithstanding repeated protestations to the contrary), and since Israel is the world’s only Jewish state, it has been tacitly construed as epitomizing the worst characteristics traditionally associated with Jews and has attracted the full brunt of anti-Jewish bigotry and hatred hitherto reserved for individuals and communities, not least because it has reversed the millenarian Jewish condition of dispersal, minority status and powerlessness. If prior to Israel’s establishment Jews were despised because of the wretchedness and helplessness, they have hitherto been reviled because of their newly discovered physical and political empowerment.”
United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 (the most recent Nuremberg Law) is reminiscent of The Doctor’s Plot, the clearest manifestation of Joseph Stalin’s practice of first creating the crime and subsequently creating the criminals to attach to that crime. In this case, the crime is “occupation,” and the criminals are Jewish settlers. “If it was a Jewish plot, everyone became Jewish or was controlled by Jews.”* Another recent draft resolution introduced by UNESCO declares that Jews have no historical connection to the Temple Mount. Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu described this resolution as a production from “the theater of the absurd.” Not satisfied that every last Jew did not go up the chimneys of Auschwitz and Sobibor, the Arab Muslim is now bent on expunging the Jewish people not only from their ancient land, but also from their ancient history in that land.
Unfortunately for the Arab Muslim (and for a world that is again predominantly antisemitic), Jewish resolve is not something they have ever dealt with prudently. Their obfuscation of real Jewish history conceals from their religious sophists the fame of the Jewish partisans of Eastern Europe, or the Warsaw Ghetto fighters –- or those Israeli soldiers and airmen who continually trounce them on the field of battle. Their litigious paranoia will never be a match for the power of Jewish existence and Jewish wisdom, both of which, if ever they do someday delve into Jewish history, they will discover have always gone hand-in-hand: Accuse them all you want, create all the crimes you want, connect them to the most despicable transgressions of your so-called “international law” all you want, but Jews will be living (and building) in the Land of Israel long after your UN affiliates are sent packing from their affluent offices in New York City.
