Posted on 03/31/2008 7:04:16 PM PDT by white trash redneck
A total of 76 percent of Israeli Jews give some degree of support to transferring Israeli Arabs to a future Palestinian state, a poll commissioned by the Knesset Channel revealed, Monday.
The poll, conducted over the Internet, included 668 adult Israeli Jews representing the entire political spectrum, cites a 3.7% margin of error.
The poll asked participants whether as part of an agreement to establish a Palestinian state there would be justification to demand that Arabs with Israeli citizenship relocate to Palestinian territory.
Only 24% were totally against the idea.
Of the remaining 76%, 29% said all Israeli Arabs should relocate. An additional 19% said only Arabs living in close proximity to the Palestinian state should relocate, and 28% said transfer should be decided based on loyalty or disloyalty to the State of Israel.
The data reflects Jewish Israelis' distrust of Arabs national priorities. A total of 50% said Arabs identify first and foremost with the Palestinian cause and see their Israeli loyalty as secondary, while 40% said Arabs identify solely with Palestinians, and only a single percent thought Arabs identify wholly with their Israeli identity.
Despite their belief that Arabs' right to retain their property was not obvious, 52% thought Israeli Arabs were not discriminated against by the state, while 43% said they were discriminated against and 1% remained undecided.
Hadash Chairman MK Muhammad Barakei was furious that the Knesset Channel initiated such a poll.
"The Knesset Channel should express Israeli democracy and cannot act as a private company advancing insane and racist ideology," he said.
What else can be done?If it’s impossible to tell the good ones from the bad ones then they all have to go.
By trebuchet, if necessary.
(”You know what ve gonna do now?” “No.” “Unpimp ze country!”)
Only the Muslim ones.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
Sounds reasonable to me considering the neighborhood.
Most Christian Arabs in Israel side with the Muslim Arabs, sorry. There were always Christian Arabs in the PLO & one was just arrested as a spy for Hezbullah a few days ago. Not all Christians. The Israeli Armenians are harmless. But they are not Arabs.
On the other hand, the Christian Arabs are generally not violent & won’t cause too much harm after the rest of them are expelled or defeated.
Israel Rejects Offer of Help from Carter, Annan
Israel issued a formal rejection of a recent offer by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to help defuse hostilities in the region by personally driving buses that would evacuate Jews from the Palestinian lands.
Carter and Annan sent their proposal to Israel in early March. They indicated that they were lining up other celebrity drivers including South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former Irish President Mary Robinson to be part of the bus driving team. Carter also apologized for not doing more. I really had hoped that Fidel would be part of our team, now that hes retired, but, alas, his health isnt that good, Carter lamented.
The root of the tensions in the region is the alien presence of Jews in formerly Muslim territory, Carter asserted. Removing this presence is the only sure path to peace. Carter said that several advisors have suggested to him that Madagascar might be the ideal ultimate location for a Jewish homeland.
During the crusade against the Albigensians in 13th-century France, one of the Catholic leaders had the attitude "kill them all--God will know his own." That seems to be the attitude of some of the respondents--many of the Israeli Arabs are dangerous and not loyal to Israel, so expel them all.
Transferring sounds good. It’s something this country should do.
