Deceptive Route to a One-State Solution -- an all Jewish State
Since the one-sided application of the United Nations partition plan, smug Israeli partisans have proffered, "Why did the Palestinians refute United Nations resolution 181 (Partition Plan) and refuse to establish a Palestinian state? " The implication has the Palestinians' recalcitrance responsible for a self-inflicted grief. The Zionists were law abiding and hearty good fellows.
The answer reveals a treachery - one million and one hundred thousand Palestinians, whose families had cultivated the area for centuries and, together with the Bedouins, had right to 93 % of the land, were asked to surrender 55% of their lands to about 600,000 foreigners, most of whom had arrived in the previous 25 years and many of whom had arrived a few minutes before the UN vote.
Other considerations - the Palestinians had not organized for statehood, and the UN Resolution 181 had no legal authority. Palestinians were prepared for a single state of mostly Arabs and some Jews, but not one in which Zionists replaced Arabs in their lands and industries, while overseas investors and underground armies pauperized and subdued the Arab population.
David Ben-Gurion, in a 1937 letter to his son, revealed why the Palestinians could never accept the Partition Plan or any "two-state" solution.
The establishment of a state, even if only on a portion of the land, is the maximal reinforcement of our strength at the present time and a powerful boost to our historical endeavors to liberate the entire country.
"Liberate the entire country." From whom? What did that mean?
Led by the Religious Right in the United States, nurtured by 'wannabe' Zionists, fed by the most deceptive propaganda mechanism in history, and twisted by Israeli global conspiracies, the world is rocked into confusion, not realizing that the "two state" solution is only a detour to nowhere, a diversion for Israel to gain time and build infrastructure in order to frame a single state out of the British Mandate - a Jewish state, constructed in accord with its own directives.
The Palestinians' strategy for halting the onslaught against them has obviously failed and needs re-direction. They are no longer fighting for two states; they are fighting for a single state that shares land and resources equitably for all occupants, regardless of persuasion, and against establishment of a single state that usurps power for a preferred ethnicity and forges a path to Palestinian destruction.
Faced with a strange and contradictory assortment of hostile people and organizations, unable to convince world bodies to act strongly and relieve their plight, the almost leaderless Palestinians are forced to rely on their own assortment of people and organizations to devise a comprehensive strategy that halts Israel's occupation of the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Because Israel's expansion cannot be prevented by confronting its "inside," it must be stalled by confronting its "outside," the same "outside" that spreads its propaganda and gives sustenance to its oppression. Knowing elements of this "outside," and understanding the part it plays in building the Greater Israel, are key to developing a cohesive force that reduces the "outside" influence.
The Religious Right
Before Theodore Herzl and political Zionism, there was John Nelson Darby (and others) and Christian Zionism. Assertions from the father of dispensationalism engineered the belief that "the Jewish Temple will be rebuilt on the Temple Mount as a precursor to the Lord returning to restore the earthly Kingdom of Israel centered on Jerusalem." Establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 invigorated Darby's 19th century movement and his disciples. After that fateful year, dispensationalist preachers, writers and institutions seized the opportunity and increased their reach.
In 2004, the independent spiritual web site Beliefnet determined that the Religious Right comprised 12.4% of the voting-age population. Among these evangelical Protestants, 88% maintained a literal interpretation of the Bible. In addition, Moderate Evangelicals comprised 10.8% of the voting-age population. Of these, 54% were characterized as biblical literalists who regarded themselves as born-again Christians.
The Christian Right promotion to advance Israel is well known - aiding in the defeat of President Carter (not considered sufficiently pro-Israel) and in the elections of Ronald Reagan and George W Bush (considered sufficiently pro-Israel), millions of dollars in contributions to Israeli causes, monetary and material assistance to settler expansion, and organized mass tourism that serves to consolidate and build Israel's Jerusalem. Israel's administrations have recognized these endeavors.
Likud's entrance to power in 1977 featured an immediate outreach to Christian evangelicals, which divided President Carter's evangelical constituency and rallied conservative Christians to support Israel's initiatives. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu furthered the relationship by preceding his 1998 visit to President Clinton with a prior meeting with evangelist leader Jerry Falwell. The evangelist radio personality pledged to ask evangelical pastors to "tell President Clinton to refrain from putting pressure on Israel" to comply with the Oslo accords.
Alignment with Israel by a powerful American social and political community has been interpreted as giving Israel a positive edge. Just the opposite can be made to happen:
(1) The Religious Right has more enemies than friends. Looked upon as hypocritical, extremist and self-serving, Conservative Christians are rejected by a mass of U.S. electorate. Those who support and behave friendly with the fundamentalists are equally tainted. For this reason, Israel deserves condemnation and rejection by all constituencies who find the doctrines of John Nelson Darby and his followers to be unacceptable.
(2) Orthodox Jews have never been eager to share their convictions and ways of life with orthodox Christians. The welcoming of Christian Zionists into West Bank settlements and acceptance of donations that advance these settlements expose a hypocritical and deceptive attitude from the Orthodox oriented settlements. These maneuvers and the alliances of top Israeli leaders with the Christian fundamentalists must disturb those in the Jewish American community who are aware of the tactics.
(3) The Religious Right, together with other evangelical communities, may comprise 20% of the American electorate, but a Religious Left (Quakers, progressive Unitarians, Congregationalists, Liberation Theology Catholics) and those indisposed to evangelical teachings comprise a constituency of greater magnitude. Due to their narrow vision, the evangelical rightists concentrate political activities in few issues and gather mightily on debates concerning their friend Israel. More disbursed in their outlook and energies, the progressive forces can not sufficiently unite on crucial issues concerning the Middle East conflict and are unable to contend the congressional players who receive generous contributions from the Religious Fright.
Time to realize that defeat of the dispensationalists in their overwhelming support for Israel is crucial for diminishing their power, for electing more responsible representatives, for lessening corruption in the electoral process and for reworking the trajectory of the Middle East crisis. Those opposed to the Religious Right -- a great majority of America -- should recognize the decisive role they can play in subduing an unpleasant institution that distorts American democracy.
The Wannabe Zionists
The Religious Right deceives its parishioners, and the "wannabe" Zionists deceive themselves. Believing you pick your nation as you choose your baseball team, these Zionists became "born again" Jews after Israel's victory in the six-day war of 1967 and allied with the winner. Behaving as if they personally emerged from the ashes, the "born again" Jews attached themselves to the Holocaust and anti-Semitism as if they had been the victims, and failed to note that they were not fighting anti-Semites but enhancing them - despite its noble intentions, is not Zionism, on close examination, the fulfillment of the anti-Semites' wishes?
The latter statement might sound extreme and in need of rigorous clarification. Nor is it intended to malign Zionists' objectives, especially during the Nazi era when they struggled to find means to support the German Jewish population and locate emergency exits for their brethren after the Nuremberg laws of September 15, 1935 created a fait accompli for the German Jews -- depriving them of their status as citizens of the German State, separating them irrevocably, politically and racially, from the German population, while pretending the possibility of an independent national existence to be developed by the Jews -- essentially allowing them to create their own state within the German state.
Survey the last words carefully, essentially creating their own state within the German state -- a two-state solution in which a rump Jewish state would be surrounded by the powerful German state - not much different than what is envisioned for the Palestinians.
Despite their valiant efforts to relieve pressure on German Jews, the Zionist position had severe detractors. Most of the arguments are summarized by A. Margaliot, "The Reaction of the Jewish Public in Germany to the Nuremberg Laws," Yad Vashem Studies, Vol. 12, pp. 75 - 107.
We do not have any evidence to indicate whether the leaders of the Central Association of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith (which had been founded in 1893) met in September in order to define its stand concerning the new laws. Eleven days later, however, its organ began to appear again, and the first issue after a break of two months contained a leading article on the subject of the Nuremberg Laws. The article stated: 'Not only are we taking leave of the [Jewish] year, which has come to an end, but also of an epoch in history, which is now drawing to its close.' Rather than attacking the government, the author criticised the Zionists, who he claimed had welcomed the laws with a sense of triumph. He advised the Zionists to bewail the fact that their gloomy prophecies had been fulfilled; it would have been better for them had they said: 'Woe to us for we have been victorious.'
The Nuremberg laws forbade Jews to fly the German flag and encouraged them to acquire a new flag for their state within a state. The Zionists seized the initiative.
Zionist Banner Decreed Official Jewish Flag by Nazis
Jewish Telegraphic Agency January 2, 1936
BERLIN (Dec. 31)
The Nazi authorities today decreed that the Zionist blue-white banner is the official Jewish flag and may be displayed under protection of the police throughout Germany.The decree is based on the flag law passed by the Reichstag at the Nuremberg session at which the anti-Jewish legislation was adopted. Jews are expressly forbidden by this law to display the German flag.
"It is up to the Jewish nation," the decree states, "to decide for itself which are to be the colors of the Jewish national flag, but until then the Zionists' blue-white flag, together with the symbols of all the different Zionist groups, is valid in the Reich as the Jewish flag and as such will be enjoying State protection."
Collaboration with the Nazi regime to resolve the problems the German government had created with its Jewish population has been rightfully vilified, and no organization collaborated more than the German Zionist Federation. Although the Federation had legitimate aims, some leaders in the Federation slowed the departure of the German Jews by planning for a more deliberate transfer of Jews, whom they wanted to train to live only in a Palestine that was being meticulously prepared to accept them, rather than planning for rapid Jewish emigration to all available nations. Full weight on using resources to transport Jews out of Germany to any place would have saved thousands.
Just as collaborating with a party, for good or evil, signifies collaboration, agreeing with the purposes of a party signifies agreement with that party.
The anti-Semites of 1878 stated that "if the Jews remained in Europe, they could only cause hostility among Christian Europeans. The only solution was for the Jews to exit from Europe and have their own country."
The Zionists, almost word for word, echoed that statement.
The anti-Semites considered the Jews as a separate race.
Although not having the elements that define a race -- common language, culture, history - the Zionists have considered the Jews to be a separate race.
These agreements are meaningful for a specific reason - unlike the Zionists, the mass of nineteenth century Jews did not accept them, and, by agreeing, the Zionists reinforced the race baiting suppositions of the anti-Semites to the detriment of the Jewish communities.
And still do. Although not entirely proven, it seems reasonable to conclude that attacks on Jews around the world are related to Israel's oppressive policies. Those who are Zionists and those who favor the Zionists should re-examine their idealist notions and determine how they have been formed. They can start by being aware that they play an essential role in the most deceptive propaganda machine in history. Everyone who places truth and honesty before political conviction and social repression, including Israel's supporters, should absorb how Israel shapes the minds and opinions of the world's peoples. With this knowledge, those who believe in peace with justice can proceed to take action that counters the propaganda.
The Most Deceptive Propaganda Mechanism in History
Israel has a huge military force that is constantly moving. Ride a bus in Israel and half of the passengers are soldiers. Israel's civilian force is also moving - look around and note the number of Israelis who live and work overseas. This army of weaponless soldiers behaves benign, and most of them are, but within their ranks are stealth bombers who serve as propagandists, and align institutions in accord with Israel's interests.
Because the Israeli propagandists work under the radar, the media does not highlight the events that capture their activities. Only if they are brought to attention or occur in daily life is one aware of the occurrences. Rather than pass on not entirely proven information and reassert some of the many known Israeli subversive operations, I prefer to describe my own experiences and those I could definitely authenticate. These describe an Israeli propaganda machine that invades U.S. industry, public schools, universities, and institutions.
Israelis in large numbers migrate to the United States, obtain jobs in industry and settle down as any immigrant. However, I have witnessed immigrants inviting fellow workers to their homes and lecturing them on why they should support Israel. I know of them going to synagogues and urging the Rabbis to place the Israeli flag next to the American flag. Contracts are given to Israeli organizations and company secrets are easily funneled to Israeli organizations.
In public schools, efforts are made to indirectly gain support for Israel by emphasis on the World War II Holocaust (nothing on the Nakba) and with events organized to attack Israel's adversaries. I know of librarians gathering students in the library to choose general biographies to read, seven out of ten which are of personalities from the World War II Holocaust. One librarian showed her ignorance of the topic by referring to Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg as a Nazi officer who helped the Jews. The World War II Holocaust has a vital place in history but treating it as a purposeful commodity demeans the lost lives.
The Free Darfur movement, accused of being allied with Israeli interests due to Israel's enmity toward Sudan, organized public school demonstrations against Sudan for purported genocide, although no graves, methods of execution or bodies have been shown to prove genocide. Local synagogues advertised the action. No demonstrations during the genocide in Rwanda or the present one in Southern Sudan, or how about Palestine?
Some students and visiting professors from Israel arrive with more concerns than learning. I have seen them at university conferences countering Palestinian expressions of grievances with statements such as, "The West Bank roads that Israel is building are meant to serve Palestinians one day," and then congregate after the meeting to discuss what they can do to counter the remarks made at the meeting. A visiting professor to St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, who was prevented from using his grant to teach Holocaust studies, sued the university for anti-Semitism and won his case. St. Cloud now has a Jewish Studies and Resources Center.
Political, "think tank," peace, and cultural organizations in Washington, D.C. are unusually populated with Israelis and Israel supporters. One route that I have noticed is where someone obtains credentials from an Israeli institute, is awarded a grant to visit the United states by a sketchy organization, eventually receives an invitation (by a friend) to lecture at a university and becomes recognized as an expert on the Middle East. This leads to a recommendation for a fellowship at a Middle East "think tank," more recognition, and soon we have an artificially prepared "Middle East expert" who ingratiates with peace groups and tries to steer everyone, including those at the institutions and universities, to lessen aggressive attitudes toward Israel. Nothing too extreme, only a neutralization of activity.
During 2010 the FBI uncovered 10 unregistered Russian agents living in the U.S. as ordinary citizens, engaging in harmless activities, such as meeting people in high places in order to influence their attitudes and reporting American views on foreign and domestic affairs to Moscow. Multiply the number of discovered Russian agents by tens of thousands and you will have the number of Israeli expatriates in the U.S., many of whom take the opportunity to do the same for Israel, becoming U.S. citizens, and voting for Israel friendly candidates.
It alls seems harmless and operates smoothly but, considering the number of Israelis who have migrated to the U.S. and other western nations in the last decades, 750,000 to 1,000,000 (why?), the amount can yield a massive spy and propaganda organization that steers westerners to favor Israel. This migration needs intensive investigation and a full report. Americans deserve protection from foreign influence. Anyone representing the interests of a foreign nation should be registered as a foreign agent.
Israeli Global Conspiracies
Extend the most deceptive propaganda mechanism in history to the international scene.
A complete description of this activity requires a book, and only a few examples will be mentioned
In France, CRIF( Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions) gathers together an assortment of groups dedicated to Israel. On example of their thrust and how they operate.
French Jewish group CRIF fined for defaming pro-Palestinian charity, April 8, 2014
(JTA) - France's largest Jewish organization defamed a pro-Palestinian charity by accusing it of financing Hamas, a French court ruled.
The ruling against the CRIF umbrella group handed down by the Nancy Court of Cassation last month was first reported Sunday by the news site al-kanz.org.
CRIF staff were ordered to pay the equivalent of $4,140 to the Committee for Charity and Support for the Palestinians, or CBSP - a group that CRIF researcher Marc Knobel in 2010 wrote "collects funds for Hamas."
European Friends of Israel (EFI), formed in 2006, is a political initiative which aims to improve the overall relationship between the European Union and Israel. EFT definition of its agenda:
EFI brings together every parliamentary national-Israel friendship group from the EU's 28 member-states and a new Israel friendship group within the European Parliament.
EFI has an initial membership of some 1,000 members of parliament from all of Europe's mainstream political parties, making it one of the largest pan European parliamentary groups of its kind.
United Kingdom has almost as many pro-Israel organizations as there are Israelis. Three of them are:
Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), a parliamentary group affiliated with the Labor Party, which promotes support for a strong bilateral relationship between Britain and Israel.
Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI), a parliamentary group affiliated with the Conservative Party and dedicated to strengthening business, cultural and political ties between the United Kingdom and Israel.
Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre (BICOM), which seeks to present Israel's case to journalists.
Russia, yes Russia, has formation of a new lobby.
Jerusalem Post, Pro-Israel caucus forming in Russian parliament, By GIL HOFFMAN, 05/25/2013
A select group of Russian parliament members will soon be urging their colleagues to say "da" to Israel after a delegation of Israelis took steps to initiate the formation of a pro-Israel caucus in the Duma in meetings last week in Moscow.
Digest all of this. Are there any European pro-Mexican or pro-Turkmenistan groups? Why this plethora of helpful groups for one small country that has a strong military and is economically well-off? Is it because the strong military expands the nation and tramples those who oppose its occupation? Are these groups necessary to disguise Israel's severe repression of the Palestinians and to counter those who protest against the deliberate destruction of the Palestinian community?
No equivalent assemblies of forces that promote a specific nation exists in the world. Why do we permit the operation of groups that further kidnappings, unlawful imprisonments, illegal seizure of property, killing members of the group without due process of law, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group by beatings and checkpoints, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life by separating them from their fields and flocks, bringing about a group's physical destruction in whole or in part by a series of restrictive measures and preventing births within the group by breaking bones and imprisoning a great part of the male population? These pro-Israel groups, who proudly announce their agendas, should be exposed and criticized for their subterfuge, deceit, and aid and comfort to an Israel that seizes lands from others, oppresses a population and commits crimes with the excuse of "security" need.
The deceptive expression "special relationship," used often in the United States to twist its relationship with Israel, is also used to deceive the nature of Israel in most west European capitals. Israel has its protectors throughout the western world.
Netherlands support to the Palestinian Authority 2012 - 2015
The Netherlands maintain excellent relations with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and a constructive partnership though our development cooperation programme, while the special relationship with Israel allows for political openings.
Press TV, Jan 30, 2014, Germany's first female Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has hailed the country's special relationship with Israel.
The minister met with Israeli Minister of Military Affairs Moshe Ya'alon in Berlin on Thursday. Ya'alon is on a two-day visit to Germany.
"This is the first foreign guest I have the pleasure of welcoming here in my function as defense minister. It shows the special relationship between Germany and Israel," the German defense minister stated.
Visegrad abroad, by Irena Kalhousová, 13. 4. 2012, Czech policy towards Israel. No Hypocritical Pacifism.
The Czech plan to organize the EU-Israel summit at the end of the presidency, with the goal to upgrade the EU relations with the Jewish state, was then called off. Some members of the EU were against the deepening of relations with Israel without the progress in the Peace Process. The Czech plan did not materialize, yet, the "special relationship" between the Czech Republic and the Jewish state remains strong. In order to understand the deep roots of this closeness, one has to look back into history.
Placing the words "special relationship" in government conversations, speeches, reports, articles and documents so they become part of the everyday vocabulary of Europeans is a significant thrust of Israel's public relations effort. Another public relations effort should replace the word "special" with the word "unwanted." Also unwanted is the international killing machine, Mossad
Mossad operates unimpeded with assassinations in many countries. Killings of people whom Israel does not favor, such as scientists working in nuclear activities for adversaries, Muslim clerics in Lebanon and Gaza, Iranian scientists, Palestinians living abroad, Hamas operatives, suspected armaments dealers, and anyone considered of danger to Israel, occur with rarely the killers being apprehended. The Wikipedia link above details sixty years of Mossad's activities.
United States, Switzerland, Norway, Poland, Yemen, Pakistan, Lebanon, Algeria, New Zealand, and many other nations have arrested Mossad agents or uncovered their activities. The link above details 50 years of apprehension of Mossad agents.
Should an international intelligence organization, involved in severe crimes in a multitude of sovereign nations, be allowed to evade prosecution? The words 'special relationship," used to shield criticism of Israel's crimes, are also used to provide an umbrella for crimes from Israel's Mossad. People are not safe in an environment where justice does not proceed legally and is not judged by local courts. Citizens are obliged to ask more of their governments in preventing Mossad from establishing its own rules of law
Not supporting the present Israel is the first step toward supporting a peaceful and just solution to the Middle East crisis. Redirecting time, energy and funds to establish an America that stands by its words of bringing freedom and justice to the world is the next step, which leads to the final step -- a U.S. foreign policy that forces Israel to halt its oppression of the Palestinians and creates a new Israel, a single state for all ethnicities and religions that have inhabited the Levant for centuries.
