Ain't That Nice?
by Gerald A. Honigman
I mean, all that balanced moral equivalence
and stuff. I just get goosebumps.
I recently received my Jerusalem Online
Updates on the computer and, sure enough, there's President
Obama's Mid East envoy, George Mitchell, stating that the U.S. won't
turn its back on Palestinians.
As if Washington ever did...
Since Mitchell had, not long before, said
something similar about Israel, how nice of him to balance the two!
Short, sweet, and to the point...
Here's how Arabs and their assorted
mouthpieces define "turning your back on the Palestinians":
Allowing for a viable--if
miniscule--State of the Jews to still be around after Arabs get their 22nd state
and second one on the original April 25, 1920 borders of the Mandate of
Palestine...Jordan sitting on some 80% of the original territory.
As has to be repeated ad nauseum because
Arabs repeat their lies ad nauseum, after Arab nationalism got the
lion's share of the land as a gift from the Brits in 1922, Arabs then
refused subsequent partitions plans--including the one in 1947 which would have
awarded them about half of the 20% of the territory still remaining. Ten percent
was still too much for the Jews...or any of the scores of millions of
other non-Arab peoples who dared ask for a slice of justice for
themselves in the region after the break-up of the centuries old Ottoman Turkish
Empire. As I feel necessary to repeat...Arabs simply claimed the whole shebang
as purely Arab patrimony.
"Arab" justice--i.e., not turning your back on
them--thus translates into caving in to all of their subjugating
And, if you don't agree, you have then, by
their definition, "turned your back on them."
Take the alleged Saudi Peace (of the
grave) Plan as the latest case in point--the one President Obama has stated
Israel would be crazy to refuse. Here 'tis in a nutshell:
If Israel (and not a Jewish
Israel) "merely" agrees to return to its pre-'67,
9-mile wide '49 armistice line--not border--existence; forsakes the
territorial compromise allowed it by the final draft of UNSC resolution
242; and agrees to be swamped by millions of "returning"
jihadist refugees raised from the cradle to the grave on non-stop Jew-hatred
(many, if not most, of whom were new-comers themselves into the
Palestinian Mandate--so much so that UNRWA had to redefine the very word
"refugee" to accommodate them) created because the Arab attempt to nip
a reborn Israel in the bud backfire...along with everything else that the Arabs
demand for the Jewish State's suicide...then the Saudis and other Arabs
might normalize relations with Israel.
What a deal? Something a three-thousand mile
wide America would accept with enemies sworn to its own destruction,
A "deal," that is, until Israel takes one too
many breaths Arabs say it is alloted.
And then the intangible Arab promises disappear
(taqiyyah--legitimate Arab/Muslim lying, to further the cause, to the
Infidel), while the concrete, tangible concessions of Israel's very
survivability have been abandoned due to pressure from its American,
There is and never has been any moral equivalence
in this conflict.
To any truly objective observer, those admittedly
imperfect Jews have indeed bent over backwards, sideways, and forwards to reach
an honorable solution with those--Arabs--who forcibly Arabize and/or
outlaw scores of millions of Imazighen/Berbers in North Africa, Kurds in Syria
and Iraq, Copts in Egypt, and so forth from such things as speaking their own
language, practicising their own non-Arab cultures, building their own places
of worship, naming their own children non-Arab names, and so forth...Then
massacring those who might disagree. Think Arab subjugation, rape, enslavement,
and genocide against black Africans in the Sudan (decades before
Darfur), the Arab Anfal Campaign against Kurds in Iraq, and so forth.
The title of the Kurdish nationalist, Ismet Cherif Vanly's, 1968 book, The
Syrian 'Mein Kampf' Against The Kurds, says it all.
You know...those same Arabs who scream about
"racist Zionists" who made Arabic the second national language of the State of
Israel, have Arabs in the Knesset (Parliament) who openly side with Hamas,
have the freest Arabs living anywhere outside of the West (despite some
problems due to the non-stop tension), etc.
A piece of advice to Mr. Netanyahu before I end
Stick to your position about recognizing that
22nd Arab state.
With crucial modifications, the Saudi
Peace Plan might be something to think about--i.e., nix any Arab
refugees returning to overwhelm you from within...the Arab game plan as of
And nix a return to the mostly suicidal
Auschwitz/armistice lines--not borders--of '49, imposed upon Israel by the
U.N. after it stood by and watched Israel being invaded by a half dozen Arab
armies and did nothing until the Jews finally turned back their would-be
executioners. The lines only marked the point where the hostilities were halted.
Israel was not resurrected to merely become a sub-rump state.
Justice demands nothing less.
When Arabs demonstrate that they truly want
real peace and are not still playing their well-known Trojan Horse,
Hudna (like Muhammad's "Peace of the Quraysh," the ceasefire the Muslim
Prophet agreed to until he gathered the strength to wipe out his
enemies), and Destruction-in-Phases games--all in the words
of the Arabs' own so-called "moderates," by the way--then something else
may become possible down the road.
Finally, please watch for my book coming out
shortly on these very issues and more, The Quest For Justice In The Middle
East...The Arab-Israeli Conflict in Greater Perspective.
