THOSE TERRIBLE ZIONISTS - BUT WHAT DOES A HAWKISH AND TRIBALIST ZIONIST REALLY THINK? Here is your chance to find answers to the questions you always had

Before you read the Zionist's column, take a look at Europe.  Don't you ever ask yourself "HAVEN'T I SEEN ALL THIS BEFORE?"
Those following current developments in the European Union - such as rising Muslim terror and criminality, checkpoints and armed military everywhere, treason by authorities and media advocating policies leading to the dissolution of the nation state and an end to European culture, and the consequent popular revolt against fraudulent 'multicultural enrichment'  - recognize them as having seen  them played out somewhere else before.  That place is Israel. 
Europeans have spent decades scrutinizing and condemning Jewish response to Muslim terror for more than a century - before and after Israeli independence.  
Angela Merkel loves arch-terrorist
Mahmoud Abbas and other
Palestinians who kill Jews
Europe and the US send the PA
 millions in aid that are used
to pay salaries to terrorists
Europeans have coddled and given support to Muslim Palestinian terrorists for decades.
Europeans to this day fund and encourage Muslim terror in Israel (they call it "resistance") through so-called humanitarian aid.  A portion of that aid goes to pay salaries to terrorists who kill and maim Jews.  
European governments fund non-governmental organizations (NGOs) tasked with undermining the security and integrity of the state of Israel, and with supporting Arab incitement and terror.
The European Union is labeling and boycotting goods from the Israeli heartland (Biblical Israel) because they say the land belongs to descendants of Muslim invaders who conquered the land in the 7th century.  Boycotting Jews comes easily to Europeans.  The most recent example is that of the Nazi boycott of Jewish stores in the 1930s.

ANIMATED VIDEO - Europeans have protected Muslim Palestinian terrorists for decades, and have attacked Israel for fighting the same war they themselves are now engaged in. 
(It seems that what enrages the European fortress inhabitants is that the rock happens to hit a Muslim minaret on its way down.  Then watch what happens when they turn against Israel.) 
POETIC JUSTICE  - Europeans never thought that poetic justice would be done to them some day. 
They are now overwhelmed by a Muslim invasion that includes jihadists, rapists, drug dealers, criminals of all sorts, and people in general who just want economic benefits without having to contribute to the country. 
Ancient Jewish kingdoms
of Israel and Judah
10th to 6th century BCE
And Europeans dare to
call Jews "occupiers"?
How could the migrants contribute, anyway, since a large majority of them are mostly illiterate and filled with hate against the West?
Europeans now feel the increased loss of personal freedoms and safety under a wave of Muslim criminality and terror.  
They face  the much maligned checkpoints not only at airports and railway stations, but at many other public sites.  
They see heavily armed police and soldiers everywhere, particularly at tourist landmarks.
And they will never feel safe and carefree again.  
Why do they do this to us, they ask.  We are not occupiers.  We are not Zionists.  We are not Jews (we killed millions of them decades ago).  So why do Muslims hate us and want to kill us?
Now Europeans understand that billions of euros given to Palestinians, and words such as "Refugees Welcome" and many other acts of generosity and tenderness, don't touch the hearts of those who have been hardened by 14 centuries of hate and supremacist indoctrination. 
Now Europeans understand what it's like to fear Muslim terror and the need to build fences, walls, and checkpoints.
Now Europeans begin to speak openly about the need to defend their indigenous culture, put an end to  Muslim legal and illegal immigration, and to the leftist multi-kulti fraud personified by the European Union, a dictatorial organization.
So here is an essay by an Israeli Jew telling it like it is.  No political correctness.  No softening of the language to avoid being called a racist.   
This too is your politically incorrect future, Europe.  If you want to survive, you too will lose fear of saying it like it is:  Europe for the Europeans.    

I am a nationalist, Zionist,
tribalist and hawk.
Here are ten things I believe:

By Vic Rosenthal 

  1. ‘Israel is the Jewish state’ has a concrete meaning: the owners of the land of Israel are the Jewish people, not all its citizens.
  2. Arabs who live in Israel should have full civil rights, but they should understand that they are living in someone else’s homeland. It’s natural and correct that the flag, national anthem, primary language and other symbols are those of the Jewish people.
  3. It is not a civil right to call for the destruction of the state or the murder of its people.
  4. Israel should not welcome non-Jewish migrants.
  5. Everyone in Israel should have freedom of religious worship and be able to visit their holy places. But the government of Israel should be sovereign over every inch of the land of Israel, in particular the Temple Mount.
  6. Everyone should be able to follow their own religion or lack thereof without coercion. But the official religion of the state of Israel should be Judaism.
  7. Israel and the Jewish people have an absolute right to defend themselves.
  8. Collective guilt justifies collective punishment.
  9. Nobody has the right to try to kill Jews or Israelis, even if their means are ineffective.
  10. There should be a death penalty for murderous terrorism.
Continue reading this column and other related articles and VIDEOS

These ten propositions mark me as anti-democratic, even racist and fascist to many, doubtless including the two former Defense Ministers who recently made speeches decrying what they believe is decay in Israel’s collective morality and accusing the Netanyahu government of being responsible for it.
Their judgments would be even harsher if I told them that I understand and identify with the act of Sgt. Elor Azaria, who shot and killed a wounded Arab stabber who (despite Azaria’s legal defense) probably posed no danger to him or others, as well as the idea that no terrorist should survive his attempted act of terrorism.
It wouldn’t help if I admitted that I agree with the decision of Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev to deny government funding to an Arab theater group that produced a play presenting a terrorist murderer in a positive light.
Or that I think there needs to be a Basic Law (the Israeli equivalent of a constitutional amendment) that defines and protects the concept of a Jewish state, just as there is one for the idea of a democratic one.
Or that I view ‘settlers’ as people with the same rights as any other citizens, including the right to not be kicked out of their homes.
Since the end of the Second World War, ‘enlightened’ people in the West have believed that nationalism was responsible for the horrors of the 20th century, and have created international institutions like the UN and the EU to counteract it.
They believe further that tribalism, the belief that one ought to give a higher priority to the welfare of one’s own people than that of others, is racism and should always be condemned in the strongest terms.
It is considered an overriding principle of universal morality that one is obligated to treat every other human equally, regardless of their relationship to you.
These principles are always justified by arguments about human rights and morality, although some cynics suggest that they were encouraged by the psychological warfare department of the Soviet KGB in order to weaken the enemies of the nationalistic and tribalist Russians.
Jerusalem, Israel's ancient capital, at night. 
Those who think they set the tone of moral discourse in Israel, like the former defense ministers and 99% of our journalists, writers, artists, lawyers, judges and academics are committed to this universalist morality.
There is nothing inherently more true about the universalist view than the tribalist one.
Arguments for one or the other must depend on the expected outcomes.
The Western argument against tribalism is that it leads to war and genocide, while universalism produces peace and cooperation.  But exactly the opposite is true in today’s world.
Let’s look at the European Union as an example of a universalist project. Because of its universalist stance toward the outside – liberal rules about granting asylum, for example – and the erasure of border controls inside it, European states are in the process of being destroyed by uncontrolled hostile migration. Those that do not adopt a tribalist policy and close their borders will not survive.
This is because universalism is a form of unilateral moral disarmament.
It is practical only if everyone practices it. And tribalist Muslims do not.
So while the EU may be effective in preventing another war between France and Germany, it can’t protect its member states against subversion by those who spit on its moral principles.
Palestinian militia routinely gives the Nazi salute.  Palestinians openly eulogize Hitler.  While Germany had to pay compensation to Israel, Palestinians - descendants of the Muslim invader, and whose leader, the Mufti of Jerusalem, worked in Berlin alongside Hitler and his cohorts on expediting the Final Solution during World War II - are demanding a terror state of their own on Jewish land.  Learn more about the Nazi-Palestinian connection further on this page.

Israel is another example.
Surrounded by tribal societies which have been marinating in hate for the Jewish state for decades, it cannot afford to open its borders to Gaza. And it can’t accept the assurances of the PLO that a Palestinian state in highly strategic Judea and Samaria would be a peaceful neighbor.
But not only would it be counter to Israel’s survival to adopt universalist principles, it would violate the conception of a Jewish nation.
This idea of a people connected to a land – even when the land was ruled by others and Jews were a minority in it – has maintained the Jewish people as a nation since biblical times, a history as long or longer as any other distinct people on earth.
Nothing is more fundamental to Judaism than the relationship between God, the Jewish people and the land of Israel.
I find it ironic that the same people who insist that “all religions must be respected” and who defend the aspirations of all kinds of ethnic groups – including ‘Palestinians’, who have one of the weakest claims of all to be considered a nation – object so strongly to Jewish nationalism.
I think that if there were to be a referendum today, the great majority of Israelis would agree with the ten propositions above.
Actually, we have such a referendum at least every four years. It is called an election, and I’m confident that the next one will result in a government that is even more nationalist, tribalistic and hawkish than the present one. And that will be a good, moral thing.

- MUSLIM COLONISTS and Palestinian Arabs' identity theft
- The truth about the Arab claim to Jewish land

Forgotten Facts about the Arab-Israeli Conflict
The Yazidi in Iraq and the Christian Copts in Egypt are not “occupiers” or “settlers;” neither are the Jews in Israel. They are both victims of a common enemy that seems to want a Middle East free of non-Muslims.

The current Palestinian narrative is that all Muslims in Palestine are natives and all Jews are settlers. This narrative is false.
There has been a small but almost continuous Jewish presence in Palestine since the destruction of Jerusalem by Rome two thousand years ago, and, as we will see, most of the Muslims living in Palestine when the state of Israel was declared in 1948 were Muslim colonists from other parts of the Ottoman Empire who had been resettled and living in Palestine for fewer than 60 years.
There are two important historical events usually overlooked in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

One is the use that Muslim rulers made of the jizya (a discriminatory tax imposed only on non-Muslims, to “protect” them from being killed or having their property destroyed) to reduce the quantity of Jews living in Palestine before the British Mandate was instituted in 1922.
The second were the incentives by the Ottoman government to relocate displaced Muslim populations from other parts of the Ottoman Empire in Palestine.

Until the late 1800s entire ancient Jewish communities had to flee Palestine to escape the brutality of Muslim authorities. As Egyptian historian Bat Ye’or writes in her book, The Dhimmi:

“The Jizya was paid in a humiliating public ceremony in which the non-Muslim while paying was struck in the head. If these taxes were not paid women and children were reduced to slavery, men were imprisoned and tortured until a ransom was paid for them.
"The Jewish communities in many cities under Muslim Rule was ruined for such demands. This custom of legalized financial abuses and extortion shattered the indigenous pre-Arab populations almost totally eliminating what remained of its peasantry…
"In 1849 the Jews of Tiberias envisaged exile because of the brutality, exactions, and injustice of the Muslim authorities.
"In addition to ordinary taxes, an Arab Sheik that ruled Hebron demanded that Jews pay an extra five thousand piastres annually for the protections of their lives and property. The Sheik threatened to attack and expel them from Hebron if it was not paid.”

The Muslim rulers not only kept the number of Jews low through discriminatory taxes, they also increased the Muslim population by providing incentives for Muslim colonists to settle in the area. Incentives included free land, 12 years exemption from taxes and exemption from military service.

Bat Ye’or continues:

“By the early 1800s the Arab population in Palestine was very little (just 246,000) it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s that most Muslim Colonists settled in Palestine because of incentives by the Ottoman Government to resettle displaced Muslim populations because of events such as the Austro-Hungarian Occupation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Crimean War and World War 1.
"Those events created a great quantity of Muslim Refugees that were resettled somewhere else in the Ottoman Empire… In 1878 an Ottoman law granted lands in Palestine to Muslim colonists. Muslim colonists from Crimea and the Balkans settled in Anatolia, Armenia, Lebanon, Syria and Palestine.”

Justin McCarthy, a professor of history at the University of Louisville, writing in his Annotated Map:
Forced Migration and Mortality in the Ottoman Empire,” also notes that there were about five million Muslims displaced due to the Austro-Hungarian occupation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Crimean War, Balkan wars, the Turkish war of independence and World War I."

Sergio DellaPergola, from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in his paper “Demography in Israel/Palestine: Trends, Prospects and Policy Implications,” provides estimates of the population of Palestine in different periods.
As the demographic data below shows, most Muslims living in Palestine in 1948 when the State of Israel was created had been living there for fewer than 60 years:
1890: Arab Population 432,000

1947: Arab Population 1,181,000

Growth in Arab population from 1890 to 1947: 800,000

The Yazidi in Iraq and the Christian Copts in Egypt are not “settlers” and “occupiers;” neither are the Jews in Israel. They are victims of a common enemy that seems to want a Middle East free of non-Muslims.

Are Arabs the indigenous people of Palestine?
By Daniel Grynglas

The wars between Israel and its Arab neighbors were fought for many years on the battlefield between armies.  In recent decades the arena of conflict has shifted from hand-to-hand combat to a war of narratives.

Everybody agrees that the current affluence of Israel, its modern infrastructure and economy were developed by the Jews. The Palestinian narrative is that as the ancient, indigenous people of Palestine they feel dispossessed and they deserve to take over Israel’s riches.

Jewish claims to their heritage in the land of Israel are supported by abundant archaeological artifacts and historical records. Meanwhile, there are no records to support the Palestinian narrative.  In history, art and literature there is no trace at all of any Muslim people referred to by anybody as “Palestinians.”

Records show that it was 19th and 20th century Jewish settlement and the resulting employment opportunities that drew successive waves of Arab immigrants to Palestine.

“The Arab population shows a remarkable increase ….. partly due to the import of Jewish capital into Palestine and other factors associated with the growth of the [Jewish] National Home..” The (Peel Commission Report – 1937)

“ the Jewish settlement Rishon l’Tsion founded in 1882, by the year 1889, the forty Jewish families settled there,  had attracted more than four hundred Arab families….  Many other Arab villages had sprouted in the same fashion.” (Joan Peters – From Time Immemorial p. 252 – referenced further as: FTI)

British PM Winston Churchill said in 1939: “.. far from being persecuted, the Arabs have crowded into the country [Palestine]..”

Before the Six Day War in 1967, when Jordan controlled the West Bank and Egypt ruled in Gaza, there was never any suggestion on the part of the “Palestinians” that they wanted independence in their ancestral homeland. The reason was that the “Palestinian” nation hadn’t been invented yet.

In fact, before the State of Israel was born, the term “Palestinians” was used by the Jews to refer to themselves and their organizations. “The Palestine Post”, the Palestine Foundation Fund, Palestine Airways, and the Palestine Symphony Orchestra were all purely Jewish enterprises.

We first hear of Arabs referred to as “Palestinians” when Yasser Arafat established the “Palestine Liberation Organization” in 1964. It was only during the 1970s that the newly minted “Palestinians” began to promote their narrative through murder and assassination.  The Arabs have justified their attacks as acts of the indigenous people struggling for national liberation.
Joan Peters' research exposed the truth about Arab claims
Many individual authors have challenged the “Palestinian” narrative.  Among these, one of the most ambitious was Joan Peters, who in 1984 published her thoroughly researched study of Arab immigration into Palestine, From Time Immemorial.
Peters assembled many accounts of 19th century travelers’ journeys through the Holy Land that paint the picture of a desolate and almost empty land.  Mark Twain’s comments in 1867 are probably the best known:
“….. A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds… a silent mournful expanse…. a desolation…. we never saw a human being on the whole route…. hardly a tree or shrub anywhere.”

Peters documents how the current land of Israel with its millions of Arabs and Jews gradually emerged from its desolate 19th century beginnings.  She analyzes the respective populations of Muslims, Christians and Jews based on data available from existing sources including Ottoman census figures, government documents, old publications, scientific research, etc.

Peters’ work was received with accolades and praise in most quarters and with predictable outrage by the supporters of the “Palestinian” narrative.  
The rabidly anti-Israeli academic, Norman Finklestein, wrote a lengthy rebuttal trying to challenge Peters’ work and smeared her personally.  Finklestein’s bogus charges were echoed by some other pro-Palestinian advocates.
The vehemence with which Peters was attacked was very telling. She had undermined the basis for the delegitimization of Israel. She had shown that the vast majority of “Palestinians” are not indigenous to Palestine but rather descendants of the Arab economic migrants who arrived in the late 19th and 20th centuries.
Peter’s thorough analysis consists of 410 pages of text and 190 pages of documentary appendices.  The general public could hardly be expected to wade through the 600-page tome full of data tables and quotes from hundreds of sources.  Thus the book was unable to reverse the continuing fiction of the indigenous “Palestinian” people whose lands have been stolen by the Jews.
A simple new way to prove Peters' key conclusion.
In the midst of various arguments, what has been overlooked is a simple and incontrovertible way to prove that the vast majority of “Palestinians” are the descendants of the relatively recent Arab immigrants.
Peters calculated that in 1882, just the non-nomadic, settled Muslims in Palestine numbered 141,000.  
Among them, those that resided in Palestine before the 1831 Egyptian invasion numbered 75 percent, or 105,700 (FTI* page 197).
By 2015, descendants of these 105,700 persons can trace their linage in Palestine for almost 200 years. Therefore, one might consider them to be the indigenous residents.
The date 1831 is important, because this was the beginning of the war with Arab Egypt, during which many thousands of Arabs settled in Palestine and changed its demographics.
The number of 105,700 thousand settled Muslims is in general agreement with other important data. Walter Lowdermilk gives the total number of 200,000 people residing in Palestine in 1850  (page 76 – Palestine Land of Promise 1944). Lowdermilk’s number includes Jews, Christians, travelling nomadic Bedouins and settled Muslims.
It also includes Arabs that immigrated after the war of 1831.  Arthur Ruppin estimates the total population in year 1882 (The Jews in the Modern World, MacMillan – 1934 page 368) as 300,000 Palestinian inhabitants, including nomadic and settled Muslims, Christians and Jews.
If these 105,700 indigenous Muslims were to increase in numbers only through natural population growth, how many would they number today in 2015? This would represent the size of this population as if there were no Muslim immigration at all.
We can calculate the estimated  2015 native population, based on natural rates of population growth.  I assume that the post-1882 Muslim population in Palestine — apart from immigration — grew at approximately the same rate as the populations of neighboring Syria, Egypt and Lebanon for which rates we have reliable data.  That rate of growth was 1.1% per annum. (FTI page 529 table in note 78)
I used the compounded interest formula to do the math. Applying the 1.1% growth rate to the Muslim population resident in Palestine in 1882 yields a total number of 453,000 Muslim descendants in 2015 of these original 105,700 native people.
According to the 2015 World Almanac, the current “Palestinian” population, including Israeli Arabs, and Arab residents of Gaza, Golan, Judea and Samaria totals 10,523,715 people.  453,000 descendants of indigenous Muslim residents constitute only 4.3% of the current “Palestinian” population. Therefore the other 95.7% of present-day “Palestinians” are clearly those Arabs and their descendants who migrated to Israel between 1831 and 2015.
Despite the substantial documentation assembled by Peters, demonstrating massive Arab immigration into Palestine, anti-Israel propagandists continue to deny it.  Based on what we know today, and the simple truths of basic math, the issue has become clear and unambiguous.  
All historic records indicate that only insignificant number of long-term settled Muslims were present in Palestine before 1882, when the large Jewish immigration began. Muslim Arab numbers increased dramatically as Jewish settlements developed infrastructure and provided work opportunities to Arabs from the neighboring countries.
Also worth noting is that the “indigenous” 4.3% comprised many non-Arab nationalities. All of them were swamped by the Arab immigrants and within a few generations lost their identity.
Given the complete absence of any historical record to the contrary, we can authoritatively say that the “Palestinian people” never existed until they were invented in the 1960s as a tool for continuing the Arab war against Israel. 
The claim that “Palestinians” are the indigenous people of Israel and that most of the present Palestinian Arabs have lived in these lands since time immemorial is a total fraud.  Albeit posthumously, Joan Peters has had the last word on the subject.



Review of Joan Peters' book From Time Immemorial.

Peters started her research with the intention of proving Arab rights to Palestine.  What she found during the course of her work was that the opposite was true:  Israel has belonged to the Jewish people since time immemorial.

Joan Peters began this book planning to write about the Arabs who fled Palestine in 1948-49, when armies of the Arab states attempted to destroy the fledgling state of Israel.

In the course of research on this subject, she came across a "seemingly casual" discrepancy between the standard definition of a refugee and the definition used for the Palestinian Arabs.

In other cases, a refugee is someone forced to leave a permanent or habitual home. In this case, however, it is someone who had lived in Palestine for just two years before the flight that began in 1948.
