Think Israel ^ | Matthew M. Hausman

Posted on 09/14/2011 2:05:42 PM PDT by ventanax5

In seeking to impose a Palestinian state on Israel, the Obama Administration, European Union, and western media have displayed a cynical contempt for history that is astounding in its breadth and scope. Pressure is brought to bear solely on Israel, who is expected to sacrifice sovereignty and security in the name of an ideal that is premised on a repudiation of the Jews' right to self-determination in their ancient homeland. The Palestinians are expected to concede nothing — not even their oft-stated goal of the phased destruction of Israel. Nothing illustrates the hypocrisy better than a comparison of their demand that Israel accept an Arab "right of return" with their ambition for a state that would be ethnically cleansed of all Jews. Like the Nazis with whom the Mufti and other Arab leaders were so closely allied during the Second World War, they seek to create a Judenrein state as a springboard for the elimination of a Jewish presence in the Mideast. Ironically, western progressives are enabling the process, even though it entails human rights violations that would certainly be illegal in liberal democracies.

The continuing support for the Palestinian cause by the United States and European Union — and their contribution of billions of dollars that fund antisemitic propaganda masquerading as school curriculum, line the pockets of the corrupt Abbas regime or end up in the coffers of Hamas — would indicate an abdication of reason if the true goal were to achieve a lasting, substantive peace.

It would be the first nation in history founded solely on hate and for the stated purpose of waging war.

I actually think it’s even worse than that.

1. It would be the first nation founded at a time when it’s occupants have expressed a determination to kill every Jew in a neighboring nation.

2. It would be funded by the West.

3. It would be armed by the enemies of Israel and the U.S.

4. Israel would be unable to block shipments to it. Gaza and the West Bank would be armed to the teeth, and with modern weapons Israel simply couldn’t effectively defend against.

5. This would essentially be a Hitlerian wet dream.

Obama and the UN are laying the groundwork for a nuclear war.

Not sure I'd condemn the US on this one. Not because of The Ones actions, but we have a Congress, and more importantly a largely pro Israel population.

China has started tossing money around in the Caribbean. I can’t believe what a lack of leadership on both sides of the isle has led to.

Things are way out of control.
