Must read/see about Israel´s right, practices and exception to be racist

Israel’s Right to Be Racist

Israel is willing to do anything to convince Palestinians and other Arabs of why it needs and deserves to have the right to be racist. Even at the level of theory, and before it began to realise itself on the ground, the Zionist colonial project sought different means by which it could convince the people whose lands it wanted to steal and against whom it wanted to discriminate to accept as understandable its need to be racist. All it required was that the Palestinians “recognize its right to exist” as a racist state.

Military methods were by no means the only persuasive tools available; there were others, including economic and cultural incentives. Zionism from the start offered some Palestinians financial benefits if they would accede to its demand that it should have the right to be racist. Indeed, the State of Israel still does. Many Palestinian officials in the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organization have been offered and have accepted numerous financial incentives to recognize this crucial Israeli need. Those among the Palestinians who regrettably continue to resist are being penalized for their intransigence by economic choking and starvation, supplemented by regular bombardment and raids, as well as international isolation.

These persuasive methods, Israel hopes, will finally convince a recalcitrant population to recognize the dire need of Israel to be a racist state. After all, Israeli racism only manifests in its flag, its national anthem, and a bunch of laws that are necessary to safeguard Jewish privilege, including the Law of Return (1950), the Law of Absentee Property (1950), the Law of the State’s Property (1951), the Law of Citizenship (1952), the Status Law (1952), the Israel Lands Administration Law (1960), the Construction and Building Law (1965), and the 2002 temporary law banning marriage between Israelis and Palestinians of the occupied territories.

[…]It should be clear then that in this international context, all existing solutions to what is called the Palestinian-Israeli “conflict” guarantee Israel’s need to maintain its racist laws and its racist character and ensure its right to impose apartheid in the West Bank and Gaza. What Abbas and the Palestinians are allowed to negotiate on, and what the Palestinian people and other Arabs are being invited to partake of, in these projected negotiations is the political and economic (but not the geographic) character of the Bantustans that Israel is carving up for them in the West Bank, and the conditions of the siege around the Big Prison called Gaza and the smaller ones in the West Bank. Make no mistake about it, Israel will not negotiate about anything else, as to do so would be tantamount to giving up its racist rule.

As for those among us who insist that no resolution will ever be possible before Israel revokes all its racist laws and does away with all its racist symbols, thus opening the way for a non-racist future for Palestinians and Jews in a decolonized bi-national state, Israel and its apologists have a ready-made response that has redefined the meaning of anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is no longer the hatred of and discrimination against Jews as a religious or ethnic group; in the age of Zionism, we are told, anti-Semitism has metamorphosed into something that is more insidious. Today, Israel and its Western defenders insist, genocidal anti-Semitism consists mainly of any attempt to take away and to refuse to uphold the absolute right of Israel to be a racist Jewish state.

  1. Have you seen this? It is very good!


  2. So….since Israel is recognized by the UN, and Fakestine is not, who is legit??

    • Fakestine?
      What is that?

      Israel is not only recognized by UN but CREATED by a UN at the time which only was represented by white civilized men. The rest of the world was not white, christian or civilized enought. No wonder that Israel was created.

      But Fakestine? Never heard of that country. Are you yet another uneducated, hateful and ignorant american?


  3. FAKEstine is a place they call ‘palestine’ It is now called Israel since 1948. Sorry you have an ISSUE with the LAW.
    There is no place called “Palestine” it is not on a map.
    It would be a good idea if you could convince your friends to end the occupation of Israel.

    • Well, Fakestine is neither a name for anything but a termed coined used and circulated by the
      right-wing american pro-zionists that altern the use of the world with screaming anti-semite.

      This is the funny thing with you hateful pro-Israeli americans, your are dubble ignorante. But hey
      that´s what you get when your mix whiteness, zionism with both american and israeli exceptionalism.

      Palestine have always existed weather you can´t deal with it or not.
      Israel was not on the map prior to 1948 as it is created by the white man in the UN. Before that the area was under
      white colonialisation. That the STATE Palestine did not materialize after 1948 is a “no-brainer”. State building is
      a young modern process that needs space to materialize. Did Israel allow for that?

      The nation Palestine has undisputable terrorital connection to every piece of land that now have been ethnically cleansed
      by formost european white jews in what we call Israel. There was never a land without a people just a people with a colonial
      project that started what your thinking is an extension of – imaginary geography!

      Funny thing, this with having an Issue with INTERNATIONAL LAW? What is the track record, say the last 10 years,
      when it comes to USA and Israel issues with the International Law. Iraq? Afaganistan? Gaza? Lebanon? Torture?
      So it would be MUCH better idea for all parties if you hurry up and run back to your “friends” that daily are committing theaft, violence
      and murders in the apartheid region of West Bank (which is the Palestine left after the Israeli colonialism) and
      demand that crimes to human rights, international law and ethnical cleansing MUST STOP!
      Yalla, please.

      Israel will collaps into the very politics it has been the center of.
      But why should palestinians suffer one second more because other some people mixing religious claims, racism
      and imaginary geography, can´t stand their very being as humans and rightful natives of the land?!
      Sick isn´t.
      And they say we live in post-COLONIAL days…

      Yes it´s a fucked-up world but we could and must all do something to change it and combat racsim, colonialism, murders, ethnical
      cleansing, torture and white supremcy!

      Thanx for joining that struggle!

  4. The Jewish Land

    Palestine/Eretz Israel: A National Home of Only One People
    June 14, 2010 | Eli E. Hertz
    The following is an excerpt from the U.S. Congressional Record of 1922 that demonstrates the powerful sense of the members of Congress in favor of reestablishing of a Jewish national home in Palestine:
    “Palestine of to-day, the land we now know as Palestine, was peopled by the Jews from the dawn of history until the Roman era. It is the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people. They were driven from it by force by the relentless Roman military machine and for centuries prevented from returning.
    “At different periods various alien people succeeded them, but the Jewish race had left an indelible impress upon the land. To-day it is a Jewish country. Every name, every landmark, every monument, and every trace of whatever civilization remaining there is still Jewish . And it has ever since remained a hope, a longing, as expressed in their prayers for these nearly 2,000 years. No other people has ever claimed Palestine as their national home. No other people has ever shown an aptitude or indicated a genuine desire to make it their homeland. The land has been ruled by foreigners. Only since the beginning of the modern Zionist effort may it be said that a creative, cultural, and economic force has entered Palestine. The Jewish Nation was forced from its natural home. It did not go because it wanted to. A perusal of Jewish history, a reading of Josephus, will convince the most skeptical that the grandest fight that was ever put up against an enemy was put up by the Jew. He never thought of leaving Palestine.
    “But he was driven out. But did he, when driven out, give up his hope of getting back? Jewish history and Jewish literature give the answer to that question. The Jew even has a fast day devoted to the day of destruction of the Jewish homeland. Never throughout history did they give up hope of returning there. I am told that 90 per cent of the Jews to-day are praying for the return of the Jewish people to its own home. The best minds among them believe in the necessity of reestablishing the Jewish land. To my mind there is something prophetic in the fact that during the ages no other nation has taken over Palestine and held it in the sense of a homeland; and there is something providential in the fact that for 1,800 years it has remained in desolation as if waiting for the return of its people.”
