Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon yesterday said that Israel is fed up with ‘giving and giving and giving’ while Palestinians refuse to recognise a Jewish nation state.
This has to be the ultimate chutzpah.
The only reason Israel is now in a position to be ‘giving, giving, giving’ is because it has spent its entire existence taking, taking, taking from the Palestinians and Arabs! Given that, why on earth would the Palestinians and Arabs want to recognise a racist Jewish nation state that continually invades, bombs, occupies, starves out, ghettoises and then builds on land that was never theirs in the first place?
Israel is not a Jewish state; more than 25% of the people in Israel are not Jews. That’s the reality of today’s Israel.
Many Jews, both in Israel and throughout the Diaspora, are aware that modern Israel is not a truly Jewish state and that Palestinians and Arabs have as much claim to the right to live on the lands that are now called Israel as the Jews do – and to do so with equal rights and the freedom to live where they like and to partake as real equals in political life.
But despite this, right-wing Zionists insist that not only do they have sole right to the lands that are now Israel but also the sole right to occupy the lands that are the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and, given half a chance, even south Lebanon up to the Litani River with the ultimate aim of creating a Greater Israel that precludes all Palestinians and Arabs.
It’s not a matter of Zionists ‘giving, giving, giving’; it’s more a case of ‘giving back, giving back, giving back.’
Fair-minded Jews and Arabs alike must come together and insist on the only solution that could possibly ever work – regardless of how impossible it may seem today – and that is the creation of OneState where all live as equals.
MORE CHUTZPAH FROM YA’ALON
Not only does Ya’alon want the Palestinians to give the Zionists more after taking from the Palestinians and Arabs what wasn’t theirs anyway, but now he’s moaning that Hezbollah are in the Gaza Strip giving support and training to Hamas who are trying to prevent the Zionists from taking any more.
Never mind that Israel receives all the training it needs from US personnel in Israel and not to mention the billions of dollars worth of arms and materiel it also receives from the US for the sole purpose of helping Israel achieve a Greater Israel. And here he is complaining that Hezbollah are giving training to Hamas.
I don’t know how Ya’alon can keep a straight face when he comes out with this nonsense.
