Arabee – or: Which side are you on?

Some weeks ago this article by David Kirschbaum was published at JPost.com.
It mixes the affections of many towards Arab despotism, which is also part of Palestinian society and the arguement about the establishment of a Palestinian state.

BUT I found the opinions portrayed intriguing and would recommend everyone to read.
How ever i do not agree, that there should not be a Palestinian state. It is in the very interest of Israel, much more in the interest of Israel than in the interest of the Palestinians, that there will be a Palestinian state.
Maybe it would be for the best, if the West Bank would become again part of Jordan and Gaza part of Egypt. But I doubt the Jordanians or the Egyptians want to take that trouble.

(…) ASSUME THE FOLLOWING: The Jews have 21 largely despotic states stretching over 13,000,000 square miles with a population of over 300 million. Most of these Jewish states prohibit any religion other than Judaism. In fact, virtually all Arabs – close to 900,000 – were expelled from these Jewish countries and their property seized. The Jews allow their own people few freedoms, with most women treated abominably.

In the midst of the 21 Jewish states is one tiny, fiercely democratic and open Arab state – let’s call it Arabee – consisting of five million Arabs. The Jewish states have 650 times more territory than Arabee. The expelled Arabs fled to Arabee, where they were resettled by their brethren.

The Arabs had been viciously persecuted outside Arabee throughout history, including by the Jews, who treated them, in the best of cases, like dhimmi – a subjugated class. One-third of the world’s Arab population was brutally slaughtered 65 years ago, during which time a chief Jewish religious figure was a guest in the country that led the slaughter, urging that the attempted genocide of the world’s Arabs be brought to the Middle East. While Jews also lived in Arabee for centuries (as they did throughout the Middle East), they never created anything resembling a state there, or much else for that matter. Throughout history, only the Arabs had ever been sovereign in Arabee. In fact, only when the Arabs started returning to Arabee after a 2,000-year exile did Jews in turn start moving there in large numbers.

Seven Jewish states tried to destroy Arabee in its infancy. During that war, about 500,000 Jews fled Arabee at the urging of Jewish leaders. But to this day, with rare exceptions, the Jewish states have refused to integrate any of those who fled, or their descendants. Over the past 61 years, various combinations of Jewish states have continued to wage war against Arabee, and Jewish terror organizations have been engaged in an unrelenting 140-year war to uproot any Arab presence in the Middle East.

A few years ago, Arabee withdrew its army and uprooted all its citizens from one of the areas claimed by both Jews and Arabs. The international community purchased from Arabee, on behalf of the Jews, state-of-the-art hothouses built by the Arabs in the areas they withdrew from. But the Jews destroyed the hothouses and turned the agricultural areas into sites for launching missiles against the Arabs. Over 3,200 rockets and mortal shells, typically fired from civilian areas, landed in Arabee during 2008. In its response, Arabee took unprecedented measures to avoid civilian casualties. Nevertheless, Jewish civilians near the launching sites were sometimes killed.

Arabee has a population of over one million Jews. It affords its Jewish citizens full rights, with Jews having full religious freedom, access to health care and education and representation in Parliament and the Supreme Court. Another one and a half million Jews live in 40% of an area that Arabee captured 42 years ago, when three Jewish states launched another war of attempted annihilation against Arabee. This area is the cradle of Arabee’s civilization. It was there that its founders lived and are buried, where its kings ruled and its prophets walked. Fifteen years ago, Arabee gave the Jews control of their own affairs in this territory. Since that time, Jewish terror attacks from this area intensified, with over 1200 Arabs killed and thousands more wounded. In the past nine years alone, around 31,000 terror attacks were carried out against Arabee.

Under these circumstances, on which side would we find the Left, especially the Jewish Left? Would we find Jews who think of themselves as liberal taking part in anti-Arabee hate-fests, writing columns and plays that present Arabee as the intransigent aggressors and the Jews as the brutalized victims, or blasting Arabee for placing Arab life and limb ahead of questionable Jewish property claims? Would we find liberal western leaders and parliamentarians or liberal journalists, academicians or college students righteously demanding that Arabee accept the 22 Jewish state solution – that Arabee shrink even further and relinquish areas that were its heartland in order to establish a 22nd Jewish state? Would the Left villainize Arabee’s prime minister for refusing to yield to those demands (…)
