The Red Plebeian

I am a snarky Socialist, environmentalist, feminist, anti-racist, anti-war and general bad-ass activist, residing in the belly of the beast of world capitalism and imperialism. I blog about stuff along those lines and sometimes some randomness. My main blog is: http://theredplebeian.wordpress.com/

And even if the Jews were to win the war, its end would find the unique possibilities and the unique achievements of Zionism in Palestine destroyed. The land that would come into being would be something quite other than the dream of world Jewry, Zionist and non-Zionist. The ‘victorious’ Jews would live surrounded by an entirely hostile Arab population, secluded into ever-threatened borders, absorbed with physical self-defense to a degree that would submerge all other interests and acitvities. The growth of a Jewish culture would cease to be the concern of the whole people; social experiments would have to be discarded as impractical luxuries; political thought would center around military strategy…. And all this would be the fate of a nation that — no matter how many immigrants it could still absorb and how far it extended its boundaries (the whole of Palestine and Transjordan is the insane Revisionist demand)–would still remain a very small people greatly outnumbered by hostile neighbors.

Under such circumstances… the Palestinian Jews would degenerate into one of those small warrior tribes about whose possibilities and importance history has amply informed us since the days of Sparta. Their relations with world Jewry would become problematical, since their defense interests might clash at any moment with those of other countries where large number of Jews lived. Palestine Jewry would eventually separate itself from the larger body of world Jewry and in its isolation develop into an entirely new people. Thus it becomes plain that at this moment and under present circumstances a Jewish state can only be erected at the price of the Jewish homeland…

Israel has instituted a no-man’s land 3 km deep into the Gaza Strip, shrinking the territory by 40%. I want a zionist to explain where Palestinians are supposed to go. How are 1.8 million refugees supposed to take cover from Israeli missiles?

  • Israeli "logic": OMG look at this owl which was hurt by a Hamas rocket! It matters so much more than the 1,000+ Palestinians we just murdered.
