A State Free of Jews—Why Does This Sound Familiar?

In the hullabaloo around Palestinian efforts to gain UN recognition as a state, there is almost no discussion about what kind of country Palestine will be.

A country free of Jews, if the Palestinians have their way.

In a meeting with reporters, PLO Ambassador to the United States Maen Areikat said, in response to a question about the rights of minorities in a future Palestine, “After the experience of the last 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated.”

Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and Egypt—to name a few—have almost entirely cleansed themselves of their ancient Jewish communities. It seems a Palestinian state would be no different than its neighbors—dangerous for non-Muslim, non-Arab minorities, vulnerable to violent Islamist groups, and susceptible to the influence of America’s adversaries.

Then again, perhaps this should not surprise us. After all, Palestinian Authority TV has long called Jews “apes and pigs” and broadcast official PA sermons with messages like, “The Jews … are the enemies of Allah and His messenger, the enemies of humanity in general, and of the Palestinians in particular.”

And these are the moderates.

This is not to say that the Palestinians should not have their own state when they meet the minimum standards of responsible behavior as a polity. But the United States and European nations must make it clear that if Palestinians are serious about building Palestine and not about destroying Israel, the only path is through negotiation and reconciliation, not using a state as a means of perpetuating violent attacks and anti-Semitism against their Jewish neighbors.

One thought on “A State Free of Jews—Why Does This Sound Familiar?

  1. 10 MAIN POINTS IN ARAB – ISRAEL CONFLICT

    ARAB IMMIGRATION

    The so-called “Palestinians” are mostly (children or grandchildren of) Arab immigration into Israel/Palestine (historic land of the Jews). Mainly, since the 1800s.

    AIM

    Arab Muslim “Palestinians” & Hezbollah, like the Arab leaders in the 1948 and 1967 wars, seek its destruction and advocate the genocide of Jews.
    [Those that cover for Arabists/Islamists genocidal campaign, somehow often phrase their argument using the "peace" slogan, for some reason].

    When not able [yet] to carry out their ultimate goal. Ethnic cleansing [worse than mere apartheid] is “at least” what they demand in a so-called “Palestine State” vision. As in: June 1, 1967 by Ahmad Shukairy; in Cairo on July 28, 2010 & in Doha on May 28 2011 by Mahmoud Abbas and in Washington D.C. on Sep. 13, 2011 by PLO’s ambassador Maen Areikat. Not to mention Jordan / Palestinian Authority’s official apartheid laws prohibiting sellling land to Jews – punishable by death].

    PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT

    Simply said. Israeli has absolutely nothing against non-Terrorist, non-attackers Arabs/Muslims. In fact, Arabs, Muslims are [not only equal and have reached high positions in Israeli society, but] even often treated with preferential treatment in Israel system.

    “CIVILIANS”

    Any time you hear about “Palestinian civilians” being hurt. Remember who is behind it, who -so cruelly- uses them to tarnish Israel’s image. [The same goes to Hezbollah, Taliban or al-Qaeda's tactics against the West].

    DAVID VS GOLIATH

    The one that hesitates and is in conflict of acting when seeing human shields is the small “David” against the “Goliath” that exploits Israel’s humane character to hit at its non-combatants civilians from among / or behind its own non-combatants.
    [Unfortunately the skewed image of who is the real powerful, causes confusion and anti-Israel bias, so rampant in the media].

    ISRAEL’S GOODWILL

    Every goodwill sacrifice by Israel, including land-giving (to the ‘Palestinians” who never actually “owned” or had any sovereignty in the area. So much for the “occupation” myth). Were/are interpreted as “weakness.”
    [The Gaza example is typical. Where Israel gave it away to the Arabs in 2005. The 'response' was rise of Islamic-terrorist Hamas' popularity in Gaza's mainstream].

    BEGINNING: 1920′S – MUFTI – “CREATOR” OF THE CONFLICT

    Arab-Islamic racist and jihad campaign against Jews in the area dates back at least to the 1920s. Led by the Arab-Islamic anti-Jewish arch-bigot the Mufti, al-Husseini. Such as the 1929 brutal massacre, mass rape, mutilation of babies, and castration of old people in Hebron. He who later on made a pact with A. Hitler and led the Muslim SS divisions to commit crimes against humanity upon Christians and Jews in the Baltic. He intervened in rescuing Jewish children from E. Europe – thereby causing their mass deaths. He was also behind the incitement of the 1941 Farhud pogrom in Iraq. The Mufti called for a Jihad against: Britain and the Jews. His ally, Jamal Husseini very active in Arab leadership and in the Arab Nazi cooperation, founded a Hitler-Youth type of young Arabs [Arab Nazi Party].
    The ‘founding’ of the conflict that early on, tells also about the true motivation of it all: bigotry.

    AHMAD SHUKAIRY

    The demonization of Israel in international arena, [including the bigoted "apartheid slur." A tactic with 3 goals in mind: 1. Diversion from rampant Arab Islamic apartheid and racism on all minorities, (including Islamic "Palestinian" anti-Christian persecution and Arab nations' anti-Arab-Palestinian policies ever since they have been told by their leaders to evacuate the area in 1948. And the Arab racist expulsion of nearly a Million Jewish refugees in the 1940s-1950s), oppression and crimes against its own people, 2. Hatred of the non-Arab, non-Muslim group, the Jews. 3. Rationalization of the genocide campaign], began in the early 1960s by the aide and henchman of the Nazi Mufti, Ahmad Shukairy, who, in 1962 identified himself with Nazi groups and in June 1967 called for a “holy war” jihad against Israel and to “Throw the Jews into the sea.” He was the first PLO chairman. Worth mentioning, while in 1957 he recognized that “Palestine” is but a part of Southern Syria, he changed 360 degrees in 1963 to go along the invention of a separate ‘Palestinian entity.

    PALLYWOOD

    You can never trust what comes out from an Arab “Palestinian” (or Hezbollah) source. After so many years and experiences of intentional lies, disinformation and even falsified images (including ‘Muhammad al-Dura,’ Jenin, Gaza beach family, etc.).

    CONTINUOUS JEWISH PRESENT

    Not only did Jews reside [in the area] centuries before the Arab invasion, but Jews never ceased completely from having a presence in Israel – Palestine.
