Jewish Enemies of Israel


Jock L. Falkson

March 4, 2007

Prompted by the recent Israel Apartheid Week.

 

 

The Anti-Israel Professors

I suppose we’ll never know their exact numbers. Nevertheless, many are highly educated academics. Professors who command respect for their primary interests. One of their secondary interests however, campaigning against Israel and for the Palestinians, pains us deeply.

 

While we have some handfuls in Israel itself, most of our Jewish enemies live and work abroad. They don’t hesitate to exploit their teaching positions to spread their anti-Israel mission among their students and other faculty members.

 

They get strong mainstream media attention because it makes for drama when Jews – especially the highly educated - attack other Jews for the practice of apartheid, no less.

 

They Accuse Israel of Apartheid?

By now the western world has come to understand that Muslim enmity for Jews and Christians - and other infidels - is Koran based and Arab cultured. Consequently Muslim enmity is virtually understood as natural, and expected.

 

But when reputable Jewish Professors of the caliber of Steven and
Jacqueline Rose, Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, Tony Judt, John Mearsheimer, Stephen Walt, Michael Neumann, Marc Ellis, Joel Kovel – and more than a hundred others - spew their enmity against Israel, the media can’t get enough of this “exotic” Jew vs. Jew performance.

 

Not A Holy Cow

Most professors justify their position by insisting that Israel is not a holy cow immune to criticism. Their pro-Palestinian support is
demonstrated by anti-Israel apartheid accusations presented in what they believe to is fair and balanced.

 

The professors justify their criticism saying they are not attacking Jews, ergo they are not anti-Semitic. But this is nonsense. For whatever Israel does or does not do, is done by Israelis, the majority of whom are Jews. The state itself cannot think, or do; only people can.

 

Who Are The True Apartheid Sinners?

The charge that Israel is carrying out hateful apartheid practices against the Palestinians is particularly cruel. Because Israelis are intrinsically anti-apartheid whereas the Palestinians are theologically and culturally practitioners of apartheid. Items:

 

·       Palestinians don’t want Jews in their midst. They intend their land to be Jew-free. It should not surprise the professors that a
Palestinian state is certain to be Judenrein.

 

·       The Palestinian street clamors for a non-Jewish Israel. The Arabs don’t try to hide their apartheid culture. Their aspiration is not for two states living side by side. They want it all and to hell with the Jews.

 

·       Did you know it’s a crime for a Palestinian to sell land to a Jew? Punishable by death? Yes, even though the Palestinians are not yet a sovereign nation they have already executed many Palestians who sold their land to Jews.

 

If that isn’t apartheid professors, what is? How about some righteous anger directed against the Palestinians for racial barbarism?

 

·       Arab culture and theology is sated with apartheid philosophy and practice. That’s the harsh lesson Jews and Christians have finally learned. It’s a case of convert or be killed. Or be thankful they let you live - provided you pay the Dhimmis’s Jezya (poll tax) and forever accept your status as second class residents. Never as citizens.

 

·       Did you know that the evidence of a Moslem trumps that of a Jew? That Jews are not equal under Shariah law? Should we be surprised that the Jewish academic enemies of Israel have never campaigned for the equal rights of Jews still living in Arab countries?

 

·       Did you know that Arab citizens always had equal rights in Israel? That’ right. Israel’s Arab citizens (now 1.3 million strong) have had equal rights from day one of Israel’s existence. It’s there for all to see in Israel’s democratic founding charter.

 

·       Did you know Palestinians have been persecuting Christians in Bethlehem?

 

Here’s evidence from a Christian Arab:

 

In his article “Exodus from Bethlehem” in World Net Daily of December 22, 2006, Joseph Farah relates what happened to the once Christian city of Bethlehem. “In I948,” he writes, “Bethlehem was more than 90 percent Christian.” By 2005 Christians were down to 35 percent. By 2006 it was further denuded to 12% of its population of 60,000 Arab residents.

 

He quotes a Bethlehem Christian community leader: “Since they (the Israelis) left the West Bank, the Palestinian Authority has waged a jihad against the Christian community, raping women, extorting businessmen, lynching "collaborators" and seizing homes.”

 

"All this talk about Israel driving Christians out and causing pain is nonsense. You want to know what is at play here, just come throughout the year and see the intimidation from the Muslims.”

 

“They have burned down our stores, built mosques in front of our churches, stole our real estate and took away our rights. Women have been raped and abducted. So don't tell me about Israel. It's the Muslims."

 

It’s your Palestinian pals, professors, whose openly hostile racial apartheid await your investigation and castigation. Why not talk to the remaining Christians in Bethlehem . . . before they’re all gone?

 

·       Allow me also to refer you to my article

“An Apartheid State?  Or The Greatest Lie Ever Told?”

http://breasy.com/israeldefender/?p=41

Here you’ll find a list of all 15 practical applications of South African apartheid. Not one, repeat, not one is applicable to non-apartheid, freedom loving, democratic Israel!

 

Ah! But What About The Apartheid Wall?

 

If your home has been repeatedly burgled, your wife raped and murdered by merciless hooded jihadists, your children brutalized by machine gun toting terrorists . . . would you not build a wall around your home to keep these cowardly criminal beasts out?

 

Of course you might not know it since the media only show you images of a wall. But not everything you see is true. For the so called wall that you see is actually 95 percent wire fence! The Palestinians’ “separation wall” is nothing but lying propaganda. It’s a security barrier, designed to keep Palestinian suicide bombers and other terrorists out. And it’s doing a hell oh a fine job at that, thank goodness.

 

Since year 2000 Israel experienced a wave of Palestinian terrorist atrocities against its citizens. 22 Suicide bombs and over 9,500 violent attacks killed more than 900 innocents. It injured and traumatized thousands, many for life. All attacks were initiated from Palestinian areas, using men, women and children to blow up Jews in Israel. I don’t recall the professors ever protesting once. Such is their enmity for Jews in Israel. Such is the depth of their regard for Palestinian terrorists.

 

Israel’s anti-terrorist barrier was erected to prevent the murderers continuing their barbaric terrorism. It was absolutely justified: 99 percent of subsequent suicide attackers and other Palestinian terrorists were stopped in their tracks.

 

To compare the saving of Jewish life and limb to the frustrations of Palestinians being late for appointments due to search procedures at crossing points, is ridiculous. To describe these inconveniences as akin to South African apartheid is an inversion of the truth. In any event there never was a separation wall in South Africa because there never was black on white terrorism.

 

Remember that 90 percent of Palestinians have been revealed by recent research to be against the existence of Israel altogether. One consequence of this relentless hatred is that Israel has been forced to employ over 50,000 security guards. Israelis are searched for weaponry at virtually every public entrance every time they enter.

 

Jewish Enemies Target The Jewish State

 

If they were genuinely interested in dismantling regimes which practice apartheid the professors would have no alternative to denouncing the Palestinians who are chain-bound to both racial and sexual apartheid. As is the case in all 22 states of the Arab League.

 

But that is quite unlikely. For the professors have swallowed the
Palestinian narrative hook line and sinker. If finally compelled by common sense to drop Israel’s alleged apartheid from their hate agenda, there are other issues they will press. For it is the very existence of the Jewish State itself which they can't abide.

Another Take On

The Apartheid Accusation

Insights from Muslim writer

Irshad Manji

 

Would an apartheid state have several Arab political parties, as Israel does?

Would the vast majority of Arab Israeli citizens turn out to vote in national elections, as they’ve usually done?

Would an apartheid state award its top literary prize to an Arab?

Would road signs throughout the land appear in both languages?

Would an apartheid state be home to universities where Arabs and Jews mingle at will, or apartment blocks where they live side by side?

Would an apartheid state bestow benefits and legal protections on
Palestinians who live outside of Israel but work inside its borders?

Would human rights organizations operate openly in an apartheid state?

Would a Hebrew newspaper in an apartheid state run an article by an Arab Israeli about why the Zionist adventure has been a total failure?

Would an apartheid state ensure conditions for the freest Arabic press in the Middle East

The late Edward Said, stated flat out that “Israel is not South Africa”.

As a Muslim, I could become a citizen of Israel without having to convert.
