This is a remarkable day: The mainstream media has actually noticed an atrocity perpetrated by Israelis against Palestinians. Teenaged boy Mohammed Abu Khedair, mentioned in our previous post, was burned alive
, a fact ascertained by the traces of smoke in his lungs. CNN took note, as did The Guardian
and The Jerusalem Post
If you visit The Jerusalem Post site, you'll find a predictable response:
The use of agent provocateurs has been a central component of Arab disinformation and propaganda for decades now. This has all the hallmarks of an operation that was mounted specifically to negate international anti-Muslim animosity following the discovery of the three murdered Jewish boys. It allows the anti-Semites to retreat back to their standard anti-Israel position.
Actually, it has been established
that right-wing Jewish zealots were responsible for what happened to Mohammed Abu Khedair. The source for that report is Ha'aretz, not normally considered an anti-Semitic journal.
Moreover, it turns out that Mohammed's 15 year old cousin Tariq Khdeir -- a gentle youth who was also kidnapped and beaten nearly to death -- is an American citizen visiting family in the area. The video embedded above shows the crime.
Atrocious deeds occur in many societies, including my own. But what happened to the Khdeir family is but a symptom of a more pervasive cancer.
Yes, there was recently an act of violence against three Israeli youths. Let's be blunt: The violence perpetrated by Palestinians is easier to justify than is the violence perpetrated by Israelis. Why? For the same reason that the violence perpetrated by the French underground was justified and the violence perpetrated by the Vichy government was not.
Israel, like the Confederate States of America and Third Reich, is a state based on an explicitly racist ideology -- on the premise that one race, one group of people, must forever hold power. Any state resting on that premise will inevitably devolve into brutishness, as the people in power rationalize despicable measures in order to maintain their positions.
Rationalization, practiced on a daily basis, leads to unyielding arrogance and a paranoid dismissal of all critics, however legitimate their criticism may be. The thugs who beat Tariq and Mohammed are not abberations: They are
Anyone who has tried (as I have) to talk to a modern young Israeli knows what I mean. Young Israelis are marked by a sneering contempt for all outsiders, including Americans and Christians. Like others born into racist states, they find ways to legitimize any
means of repressing The Other, however repellent those means may be. This haughty attitude is an obvious defense mechanism, born of the daily toil of having to defend the indefensible. Today's Israelis are nothing like the ones I met thirty, twenty years ago -- and certainly nothing like the Jews I've known in the United States.
Like the CSA, like Nazi Germany, Israel must end.
No, I didn't say that the Jews must be driven into the sea. Were the Germans driven into the sea in 1945? Were white southerners driven into the sea in 1865?
Although the CIA once issued a report forecasting that Jews would flee Israel en masse
if the Palestinians were ever allowed full rights, I doubt that this prediction would come true. Some Jews would go; most would stay.
But the state
must end. The time for peaceful evolution has passed; after the assassination of Rabin, Israel quickly segued into "beyond reform" status. That country must be replaced by something entirely different, by a new nation which grants full legal rights to all inhabitants of the land.
The day is coming -- soon -- when the rest of the world will demand regime change. Some will try to pin the "anti-Semite" label on those who make this demand. To the contrary: If anyone but
Jews ruled Israel, the rest of the world long ago would have said "Enough!" As in 1865, as in 1945, we must put a stop to a government -- an ideology -- founded on deceit, manipulation, violence, racial supremacism, and institutionalized misery.
I believe that the end of Israel will be a boon to Jews throughout the world, because they will be freed of having to defend the indefensible -- of having to defend racism. Once rid of that psychological toxin, Jews will look back at this time and shudder. They will ask themselves the same question white Americans ask themselves whenever we think of the way things were before the civil rights movement: "What were we thinking? Why did we do
