Surest Way to the Next Holocaust
People keep saying how Israel arose from the ashes of the Holocaust. That sounds quite eloquent but it is also quite wrong. The re-establishment of Israel as the modern state of the Jewish People on our ancestral homeland was suggested before World War I, before anyone had ever heard of Hitler. Before Hitler had invented himself as the architect of the Final Solution. The truth is that had Israel already existed as a modern state, there would have been many dead Jews in Europe, for sure, but nowhere near the Holocaust that sought to exterminate us like vermin.
So for all you Jew-haters, you need to get rid of Israel if you want to get another chance at eradicating us. And I know you know this. How do I know? Because you keep asking us to appease the Arabs who now manipulatively call themselves Palestinians.
An Experiment in Appeasement
While war gets people dead, appeasement does not keep everyone alive. In the long term — and we cannot know what the long term is until it is over — it can even get more people dead because history shows us that appeasement does not prevent war. Appeasement seems to make the eventual war more vicious and deadly than war fought earlier would have been.
Once upon a time, not very long ago, an experiment in appeasement was carried out here. Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, taking every last Jew (civilian and soldier) out of the place, leaving agricultural, electric and hydro infrastructures in situ. There was even the promise to build a seaport and to rebuild the airport so that the Gazans would have access to the rest of the world for self-sustaining economic activities.
As a result of the appeasement experiment, we discovered that it is a mistake to give some people what-we-hope-they-mean-when-they-say-what-they-want rather than really listening to what-they-say-they-want. Remarkably, the latest series of “demonstrations” at the Gaza border fence was honesty named, March of Return. Return? Yes, return to the borderless territories that were under Muslim control under the Ottomans.
This is what they really want and they have never been shy about saying so: they want ALL of Israel gone. All Jews the hell out of here.
So the do-gooder humanitarians who say they only want to see Israelis and so-called-Palestinians living in peace side-by-side (as if the Gaza withdrawal has taught them nothing at all) tell us that the only solution is the two-state so-called-solution. And world peace is then supposed to follow (perhaps they think they are the Messiah’s understudy). Carving up the land intended to be the modern Jewish homeland and giving 70% of it to a never-before-existing-Jordan in 1922 was not enough. They want sovereign Arabs who now call themselves Palestinians controlling all of Judea and Samaria.
What would that look like? Apart from the fact that it would be tearing the heart out of our homeland, that is?
Here is what it would look like if Arabs were sitting in these hills:
Here is a clear day:
And here is something that gives you an idea of distances (or perhaps it is more meaningful to say, of closenesses):
So now picture Hamas in those hills, aiming missiles at Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport. They could paralyze the country. And if, by some chance, they were able to overcome Israel and destroy our country, no Jew anywhere in the world would be safe from murderous antisemitism. Holocaust Number 2. Probably will not come close to the sophistication of the German version of Holocaust Number 1, but Holocaust no less there will be.
Not that I think that we will let it get to the point where the Arabs actually manage to destroy Israel. . . But we can be neither nonchalant nor naive.
Every organized tour of the Shomron region includes a visit to The State’s Lookout, or in Hebrew: Mirpeset HaMedina, at Paduel. I was there twice in the past month, once with David Haivri (a trip organized by the Ministry of Strategic Affairs and the Shomron Council) and once with David Hermelin (trip organized by The Center for Public Diplomacy and Israeli Hasbara). When you look right and left across the landscape, you can see why there will never be another Gaza-like withdrawal and even a negotiated settlement between the Palestinian Authority and Israel looks very dangerous. Unless, of course, you are willing to put Israel (Jews) on the sacrificial altar as you continue to experiment with appeasing the Arabs.
