Why was the Palestinian Authority Established?

Neither Israel nor the PLO signed the Oslo Accords in good faith. The PLO was founded to destroy Israel and has never abandoned its Anti-Zionist zeal to destroy the Jewish state. Israel of course was keenly aware of this fact but sought to unburden itself of military administration of millions of Palestinians. Palestinian autonomy wasContinue reading “Why was the Palestinian Authority Established?”

The Strategy of Mansour Abbas

The Islamist Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Egyptian school teacher Hassan al-Banna to establish a worldwide caliphate run under an Islamist version of sharia law. The global Muslim Brotherhood has three pillars. 1) The original underground fraternal organization as organized into national branches. 2) The front organizations including NGOs, mosques and political partiesContinue reading “The Strategy of Mansour Abbas”

What Would Happen if Israel did as the PA Wants?

Imagine if Israel agreed to withdraw plus-minus to the pre-1967 Auschwitz lines and agreed to deport hundreds of thousands of indigenous residents of Judea and Samaria? Assuming that the PA would agree to signing such an agreement which is not at all certain, this would not resolve the question of descendants of ex-refugees who wouldContinue reading “What Would Happen if Israel did as the PA Wants?”

The Oslo Mutual Deception

What enabled the Oslo accords? Israeli intelligence with its deep penetration of Palestinian organizations of course was well aware that the PLO adhered to the Phased Plan (1974 Ten point program). Israel agreed to the idea of Palestinian autonomy in Judea/Samaria and Gaza already in the 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty which means that both leftContinue reading “The Oslo Mutual Deception”

Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?

Palestinian nationalism is thoroughly based on Anti-Zionism, the third stage of Anti-Jewish bigotry with the earlier stages being Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism (in the narrow sense). Palestinian nationalism systematically racializes Jews in terms of all three stages of Anti-Semitism in the broader sense. Palestinian nationalism is thus primarily a form of racism and is as suchContinue reading “Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?”

The Death of Anti-Zionism

What will happen to Anti-Zionism when tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants arrive in the land of Israel? Israel’s population will triple or quadruple and Israel will redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria while Jordan subsequently will annex Gaza. Israel will annex Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and LebanonContinue reading “The Death of Anti-Zionism”

The Case for Jewish Critical Theory

The Jews have always since antiquity been a structurally oppressed group and remain so. There are three historical phases of Anti-Jewish prejudice and those are known to scientists as Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism. However, in common parlance as well as in scientific usage is the term Anti-Semitism used to denote all three stages. There hasContinue reading “The Case for Jewish Critical Theory”

Populating the Negev

Israel will face an influx of tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants in the coming decade or two. Israel’s population will triple or quadruple and the question is where will the immigrants live? It would of course be possible to triple or quadruple the size of current cities but another option is to buildContinue reading “Populating the Negev”

Appeasing the Palestinian Movement does not Work

When the Israeli government initiated what became the Oslo process was it quite aware that no end-of-claims final status agreement was possible with the PLO. Yet, the opened-eyed, realistic Israeli government initiated the Oslo process with the goal of establishing a Palestinian autonomy, something that was accepted by both Likud and Labor and was anchoredContinue reading “Appeasing the Palestinian Movement does not Work”

The Muslim Brotherhood is not Pro-Democratic

It is often claimed by academic apologists for totalitarianism that the Muslim Brotherhood is a force for democratization in the Muslim world. However, the experience in Sudan, Turkey and Gaza suggests otherwise as in all three jurisdictions the Muslim Brotherhood established highly oppressive dictatorial rule. An Islamist version of sharia law was instituted as nationalContinue reading “The Muslim Brotherhood is not Pro-Democratic”

All Jews are Indigenous

Anti-Zionists claim that converts to Judaism are not genuine Jews. Contrary to all genetic science do Anti-Zionists claim that Ashkenazi Jews are all descended from “European” converts to Judaism. Genetic science in contrast has determined that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from a mixture of Levantines and Italians although Middle Eastern origin predominates genetically. Who wereContinue reading “All Jews are Indigenous”

Is Islam Incompatible with Democracy?

After the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States did the George W. Bush administration launch a global campaign to promote democratization and liberalization in Islamdom. Many have later asked whether this was a mistaken policy as it was clearly the Bush administration’s efforts that ushered in the Arab spring a full decade later.Continue reading “Is Islam Incompatible with Democracy?”

United we Stand, Divided we Fall

A strong defense pact in the wider region against Iran should include as many relevant countries as possible. This should include Israel, Azerbaijan, the five post-Soviet central Asian nations, as many Gulf states as possible as well as Jordan, Egypt, Sudan and Morocco. These are countries that are intended victims of the Khomeinist regime’s neo-imperialistContinue reading “United we Stand, Divided we Fall”

Liberalization without Suppressing Religion

Secularism in Turkey and Iran during the 20th century was anti-religious in actively trying to limit the extent of religion in society. This led to a backlash in Islamists coming to power. The secularization policies of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and Mohammad Reza Pahlavi were in this sense clearly counterproductive. However, their respective heritage remains aliveContinue reading “Liberalization without Suppressing Religion”
