The State of Israel was created via massive ethnic cleansing, and continues to exist only by depriving the vote from the majority of its citizens (the Arab majority that it refuses to grant citizenship papers to, instead calling them “Palestinians” or just “Arabs”). The State of Israel deprives all non-Jews of civil rights in Israel — just as Iran forces Islamic law upon all, the state of Israel forces Judaic law upon all. In the state of Israel, as with the state of Iran, all laws must comply with their religion as defined by the most radically conservative of their clergy or else are held to be invalid. In other words, Iran and Israel are mirror images, one Islamic, one Judaic.
So what to do, what to do… well, there’s one problem here. The Jews of Europe fled to Palestine because, well, they had no other place to go, what with two years after WWII ended they were still stuck in Hitler’s concentration camps (except with the machine guns turned around to protect them from the Europeans, and re-labeled as “refugee camps”). So while the Arabs may be angry about the illegal immigrants who came and took their land, there’s a problem with just saying “destroy Israel!”. Where do the Jews go?
The Jews aren’t going to go back to their European concentration camps even if the concentration camps hadn’t been largely bulldozed out of a sense of shame, and the Palestinians, who’ve been living in concentration camps for the past sixty years, are pretty goddamned tired of concentration camps too. But there’s already a fait accompli here — the Jews, tired of waiting for someone to rescue them from Europe’s concentration camps, already found themselves a nation to be a citizen of, even if they had to deprive a buncha Arabs of fundamental human rights in order to do so. So the only realistic way to solve the problem of Palestinians living in concentration camps for sixty years is, well, give them citizenship. Somewhere. Anywhere. Pay Egypt to give them all Egyptian citizenship. I'm sure if you paid Egypt another $10B a year they'd be happy to have the Palestinians as new Egyptians. Or fuck, just give’em all U.S. citizenship and give’em all of northeastern Nevada as their new homeland. Or maybe part of southwestern Nevada north of Las Vegas and east of Beatty and Pahrump, so they can learn how to glow in the dark. Whatever. Because as long as the poor bastards are interned in concentration camps all over the Middle East (Gaza being the biggest one of course), they’re always going to be trouble. Because folks just don’t like being kept in concentration camps for generations, and if you do it, well, they figure that dying is better than living life in a concentration camp and tend to strap on explosive vests and shit. Human nature, podner.
You wanna end Palestinian suicide bombings? Simple way to do it — end the concentration camps for Palestinians. Give the poor bastards citizenship somewhere — anywhere — where they’re first class citizens of a real nation (not some bogus Bantu-stan “Palestinian Authority” that doesn’t even control its own borders). I guarantee you that you’ll see an end to the suicide bombings then, because citizens don’t strap on bombs and kill themselves — only concentration camp inmates do, because they got nothing left to lose except their chains.
Will it happen? Of course not. Nobody wants to admit reality. So it goes. So it goes.
