The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy

Since the collapse of the Oslo process in the year 2000 has the Palestinian Authority (PA) practiced a strategy of biding for time while rejecting all proposals for ending the conflict, which Palestinians describe as “the conspiracy to liquidate the Palestinian issue”. The calculus is that time is on the side of the Palestinians. TheContinue reading “The Palestinian Apartheid Strategy”

Take Anti-Zionism Seriously

There is a fundamental problem with two-state messianism and that is that it does not take the Anti-Zionism of the Palestinian Authority seriously. Why are Palestinian Authority schools teaching Palestinian children about ostensible “Jewish conspiracies”? Why are they taught that the Jews have no history in Israel? Why are they taught that the destruction ofContinue reading “Take Anti-Zionism Seriously”

The Palestinian Interest

What is the Palestinian interest? There are two perspectives to this. The first perspective assumes that the Palestinian interest lies in fighting the Jewish state until the entire Jewish population in accordance with the Palestinian consensus has been “removed” from the land, i.e. exterminated since there is nowhere to deport the Jews. Palestinians have beenContinue reading “The Palestinian Interest”

Denazification of Judea and Samaria

Once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel will Israel redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria and the Jordanian royal family will subsequently be extremely pleased to annex Gaza. The arrival of tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants to Israel will put an unprecedented strain on the IsraeliContinue reading “Denazification of Judea and Samaria”

The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate

It has often been claimed that peace requires accepting that there are two competing narratives, one Israeli and one Palestinian, but is this really true? What has not been considered is that the Palestinian narrative is Anti-Zionist, meaning opposed to peace with Israel. Therefore legitimizing the Palestinian narrative as an obstacle to peace makes peaceContinue reading “The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate”

Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open

There has been tremendous mistrust between the Biden administration and the Israeli government on account of Israel’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis China and America’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis Iran. Israel now understands that there will be no nuclear deal with Iran because Tehran has no interest in such an agreement. The US and Israel are jointly trainingContinue reading “Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open”

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?”

Yes Let’s Bury the Two-State Solution

The PA “foreign minister” Riyad al-Maliki has claimed at the UN Security Council that there is a choice limited to 1) Israel withdrawing to the pre-1967 indefensible Auschwitz lines, 2) turning Israel into the world’s only non-nation state or 3) an Apartheid state. Al-Maliki seemed hysterical. The reason of course is that he falsely considersContinue reading “Yes Let’s Bury the Two-State Solution”

The Poisonous Legacy of Operation SIG

The Soviet Union was very early in recognizing Israel on May 17, 1948 in no doubt hoping that then democratic socialist Israel would align with the Communist Soviet Union. However, the Labor-led government of Israel prioritized relations with fellow liberal democracies. The Soviet Union became officially Anti-Semitic in propagating the conspiracy theory that the UnitedContinue reading “The Poisonous Legacy of Operation SIG”

Master-Slave Morality and Zionism

The case against Israel is based in Master-Slave morality in 1) falsely claiming on the basis of Slave morality that Palestinians are an oppressed group on account of Israeli counterterrorism and other self-defense and 2) wielding Master morality against Jews such as through terrorism and wars of aggression with genocidal intent while accusing Jewish self-defenseContinue reading “Master-Slave Morality and Zionism”

Jewish Critical Theory Will Win Back Progressive Jews to Zionism

Critical theory is an interdisciplinary academic field devoted to studying and exposing how subconscious societal, cultural and discursive structures determine human behavior. Jewish critical theory, i.e. a) exposing and discrediting Anti-Jewish structures in discourse, b) deploying rabbinic discursive modes in all kinds of discourses and c) advocating for indigenous nations everywhere, including in the ArabContinue reading “Jewish Critical Theory Will Win Back Progressive Jews to Zionism”

Does the PA Want a Palestinian State?

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has continued the Palestinian nationalist tradition of rejecting all peace offers for partition since 1937. The question needs therefore be asked whether the PA is at all interested in establishing a Palestinian state other than one in the place of Israel as called for in the 1964 PLO Palestinian National Covenant?Continue reading “Does the PA Want a Palestinian State?”
