The only true democracy in the Middle East has officially died. In marginalizing one-fifth of its population, the Jews of Israel have finally completed Theodore Herzl’s Zionist vision, but not without a cost, as the bill officially enshrines Apartheid into law in the country. This new law explicitly asserts that, “the realization of the right to national self-determination in Israel is unique to the Jewish people.” This in and of itself should be uncontroversial, and I fully support such a notion, but if you were to substitute “Israel” for, say, Germany or Greece, and “Jewish” for German or Greek, you would be shouted down as a Nazi and given the usual litany of vague, unprovable, and often contradictory reasons for mass immigration as a nation-enriching, not destroying, enterprise. Of course, in the most rank hypocrisy, the vast majority of the punditry espousing these views are either themselves Jewish or work for a Jewish-owned and controlled outlet; further, of the many politicians who would respond in kind, they are also themselves Jewish (Schumer, Feinstein, etc.) or under Jewish sway. Israel aggressively weeds out and deports “infiltrators” (as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls illegal aliens), whereas we are told that the divinely-ordained MS-13 are more American than we are.
We’re told that “Arabic was never an official language in Israel” at the same time that we’re told Africans were in Britain before the Britons (quoth Ghanaian and Jewish immigrant Afua Hirsch) and that “your grandkids will be brown.” Again, I have no issue with Israel seizing control of its destiny as the Jewish homeland—this is precisely what I want for our people from Oceania to the Americas to Europe. I take great issue with being denied that same right by the people who acknowledge that this is a great and momentous step for the Jewish people. I take issue with watching our friends in Russia constantly vilified when Mexico interferes far more extensively, openly, and damagingly than a few Facebook ads, or when China has operatives deeply embedded in America and engages in large-scale espionage and technology and intellectual property theft. Israel is also no stranger to spying on the United States or attacking our naval vessels. Furthermore, the hypocrisy regarding Russia takes on a far more sinister note when you consider the following, from Ron Unz:
Enormous numbers of Russians suffered and died in the aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution, and given the overwhelmingly Jewish composition of the top leadership during much of that period, it is hardly surprising that “anti-Semitism” was deemed a capital offense…After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, reborn Russia soon fell under the overwhelming domination of a small group of Oligarchs, almost entirely of Jewish background, and a decade of total misery and impoverishment for the general Russian population soon followed. But once an actual Russian named Vladimir Putin regained control, these trends reversed and the lives of Russians have enormously improved since that time. America’s media organs were overwhelmingly friendly toward Russia when it was under Jewish Oligarchic rule, while Putin has been demonized in the press more ferociously than any world leader since Hitler. Indeed, our media pundits regularly identify Putin as “the new Hitler” and I actually think the analogy might be a reasonable one, but just not in the way they intend.
The typical mainstream conservative “stands with Israel” yet reacts with horror at the notion that America was by-and-large founded by and for whites, and should preserve “the right to national self-determination.” They remain stubbornly committed to race-blind civic nationalism for America that does not hold up in the face of a plethora of contradictory evidence that most non-whites do not and will never share our values. Many do of course, and are valuable additions to this country, but the point is that even in a nation that has been able to assimilate diverse peoples at a level unparalleled in human history, there are historical and biological realities that preclude a true “melting pot” outside of the European peoples (and even that with only a multi-generational commitment) minus the exceptions that don’t prove the rule.
This latest Israeli law, which effectively creates the conditions of Apartheid that Rhodesia and South Africa were so demonized for implementing in the interests of racial survival, must force anyone who is intellectually honest to make a decision—either you support ethno-national self-determination for all peoples, or you support it for none. Rarely are we given such a clear binary choice. If you stand with Israel, you stand with Apartheid, and you need to come to terms with that. So either you’re okay with Israeli Apartheid for ethnic self-preservation and self-determination, or you’re not because it is un-democratic. This is going to require a radical re-evaluation of our notion of “progress” if we admit that the sanctions and the pressures on the African nations governed by Apartheid were the final nail in the coffin for the white settlers of those nations; and any honest person would have to admit such a fact. Today, as a disenfranchised and despised minority, whites in South Africa represent 40% of all murder victims despite constituting just 9% of the population; murders are committed with impunity and the state sanctions land seizures with no compensation. The United States has torn itself to pieces in a vain attempt to repent for its history of slavery and segregation, and it has greatly impoverished our nation in every possible way. It’s no way to run a country if you, in fact, want to have a country.
Israel correctly identifies the threat of a hostile Arab-Muslim minority and has heretofore taken proper security measures to ensure the safety of its people. Now, with this law, they have taken the final step in realizing the Zionist vision of establishing an Israel-for-Jews from now on. I support their right to exist as an ethnostate just as I support the same for the French and the English and the Tibetans and the Turks. Yet we are told that Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Russia, Italy, and other nations taking similar steps are squarely in the grips of “undemocratic” fascism; ignoring the fact that these nations are all governed by popularly-elected officials, some of whom, like Viktor Orban, enjoy immense support of nearly three-quarters of the population.
One troublesome aspect of the law, however, is represented in the following passages: “The state shall act to preserve the cultural, historical and religious heritage of the Jewish people among Jews in the Diaspora” and “The state will act in the Diaspora to maintain the connection between the state and the Jewish people,” which, given the media’s hysteria regarding Russian “intervention” in the 2016 presidential election, should raise a few eyebrows. It won’t though, and we all know why.
There is, however, an easy solution to these conflicting loyalties between the explicitly Jewish state of Israel and the loyalty most Jews feel toward their homeland which supersedes their loyalty to their home country—a pair of clauses state: “The state sees developing Jewish settlement as a national interest and will take steps to encourage, advance, and implement this interest” and “The state will be open for Jewish immigration and the ingathering of exiles.” The simple reconciliation would be to firmly and finally finish the Diaspora’s re-settlement in Israel, which can only reinforce the notion that the long-suffering Jews have a homeland that is explicitly theirs, and they no longer need reside in Europe, America, or elsewhere and have the Sword of Damocles that is another Holocaust hanging over their heads, as Shmuley Boteach, Oskar Deutch, and others worry.
As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated definitively, “This is our country, the Jewish state. In recent years there have been those who have tried to undermine that and question the principles of our existence. Today we made it into law: This is the country, the language, the anthem and flag.” Why, then, is it “far-right extremism” for a Canadian or an American or a Swede to say the same? Why, despite being an obvious fiction, has “Britain always been multicultural” or America “a nation of immigrants” when almost every Israeli’s roots in the country extend no further than the mid-1940s? When they also forcibly conquered land, and continue to act belligerently toward their neighbors? When they interfere in the electoral process in the United States and elsewhere? When the Diaspora artificially manipulates public opinion across the West from its positions in media, entertainment, and especially in the United States, academia? When they use financial pressure to force nations like Greece into serfdom?
So which is it? Did we make a colossal mistake by opening borders across the globe and sentencing South Africa and Rhodesia to death, and going forward we re-affirm our commitment to the nation-state, of a homeland for all peoples free from foreign interference, or is Israel in flagrant violation of human rights in flaunting the democracy we supposedly invaded Iraq and Afghanistan to install? The kind of democracy we overthrew Gaddafi and plunged Syria into civil war for? Is Israel an enemy of democracy, a fascist state targeted for oblivion, or will the civic nationalists finally reject the globalists’ duplicitousness and accept that it’s okay to take their own side?
