Israel Will Be Fine

Israel is delegitimizing itself in a hysterical and manic witch hunt against BDS.  Enemies are everywhere and intent on its destruction.  However this paranoid and shrill campaign only serves to alienate the very people it needs to stand up for it, especially young diaspora Jews who now see it as an intolerant apartheid state like South Africa.

All of their core support is collapsing as will be seen in the AIPAC conference starting this weekend.  There will be earnest oaths of fealty and panicked calls for ‘unity’, but the simple fact is that hard working Americans no longer care to send billions every year to subsidize Israel’s universal health care for Arabs and ultra-religious Jews even as they go without.  Furthermore with the war in Syria, Trumpkins are now being forced to pick a side between Boobee and Pootey:  Do we bomb Assad or the rebels?  It would be funny if it wasn’t so grisly.  This and other core ideological conflicts driven by craven opportunism will splinter the coalition.

And now they are trying to export their cannibalistic private security industry to US shores – with armed guards outside every Jewish institution to protect us from the ‘terrorists’ who they incited.  Righteous American Jews simply will not stand for it.

And let’s not forget the real demographic time bomb – the hundreds of thousands of ultra-orthodox who were abused and exploited by their Jewish taskmasters and whose suffering was ignored by their own brothers living right next door.   They will soon demand retribution.  ‘A pound of flesh’ – we should be so lucky.

Tectonic convulsions deep below the surface widen the fractures.  Now let’s watch as the Zio-fascist settlers turn on each other with their incoherent and conflicting eschatologies.

Mainstream Israelis and Jews support the genocidal Trump regime even as they cry, “Never forget!”  The Israeli government said nothing as their agents bullied, harassed, and physically attacked loving critics.  Silence in the face of evil while decrying dissent as ‘uncivil’ – the hypocrisy is staggering.  All the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men can’t put this Humpty Dumpty back together again.

So what’s the answer?  Simple: One state with full and equal rights for all including freedom of speech and religion without exceptions like ‘hate speech’ or ‘incitement’.  This must be baked into the Constitution so it can’t be changed.  How can I be so sure this will work?  “Ye of little faith,” as a wise man once explained.  🙂

And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come.     – Joshua 5:13
