Some of the more advanced Israel/Palestine commentators have agreed amongst themselves that the ‘one-state solution’ amounts to empty talk for the simple reason that Palestine is ‘one-state’ already: It has natural borders, one electric grid and even one international pre-dial number (+972). But this beautiful and historic land, stretched from the river to the sea, is dominated by a foreign and hostile ideology that is racially supremacist and vile towards the indigenous people of the land.

Some of those perceptive analysts have been bewildered following a peculiar shift in Israeli politics: while the so-called Israeli ‘Left’ has been advocating racial and ethnic segregation between Jews and Palestinians by adopting the two-state solution, it is actually the Zionist ultra-right that has been pushing constantly for an integration of the ‘land’ by means of Israeli annexation.

While very few within the Israeli Left joined the call for a one-state solution, it seems as if PM Benjamin Netanyahu and the entire Israeli Right are thrilled by the idea.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed on Saturday to extend Israeli sovereignty to the settlements of the West Bank if he is re-elected in Tuesday’s poll.

Netanyahu’s declaration shouldn’t take us by surprise. Two weeks ago, a Haaretz poll revealed that 42% of Israelis back West Bank annexation. Apparently, 16% of those polled support annexing the entire West Bank without giving any political rights to the Palestinians who live there. I guess that it is hard not to see the political reasoning behind PM Netanyahu’s promise to annex settlements. Netanyahu, who is likely to form the next Israeli government, is attempting to appeal to the Israeli ultra-right voters. He wants them to vote Likud on Tuesday rather than ‘wasting’ their vote on a small ultra-right party or another.

There is obviously a big difference between the one-state call that has been pushed by Palestinian solidarity activists and Netanyahu’s politics of annexation. While Palestinian rights advocates are referring to one democratic state, Netanyahu is not committed to democracy at all. He is solely faithful to the Jewish population and what he offers in practice is a ‘One Jewish State Solution.’ After all, Israel defines itself as ‘the Jewish State’ and it is there to serve one people while denying others their most elementary rights. Israel, as we know, is not a state of its citizens, it is a state of its Jewish citizens. By the time Israel comes to term with its sin and transcends into a state of its citizens regardless of their race, ethnicity or religious belief it will be renamed. It may as well be called Palestine.

  1. most of the Jewish “holidays” – Hannukah, Purim, etc., celebrate one or another of the many genocides Jews have inflicted on the host or a neighboring tribe. Right now, (((they))) have 2 ongoing:

    locally, against the Palestinians,

    and globally, against the Whites.

  2. Atzmon succinctly sums up Israel’s uncompromising agenda and the Zionist values which animate it. They are undeniably arrogant and drenched in a mindset of innate superiority.

    Make way for G-d’s Chosen People!

    Hitler’s national socialist ideology was never this far-reaching or extreme. And Hitlerism never nested securely inside Washington, Wall Street, London, Brussels, City of London, and Hollywood. Nor did Hitler enjoy the comfort of possessing a ready stockpile of nuclear weapons.

    Today’s political ecosystem is particularly distorted since Israel’s domination of Washington makes the Jewish state nearly invincible and largely unaccountable. The Zions can wage war by remote control.

    Worse still, Israel’s slow-motion extermination of its non-Jewish residents is just one objective among many. There’s an armada of unfinished business here, including ‘world Jewry’s’ international campaign to impose speech restrictions on that nebulous basket of dissent that they categorize as ‘hate speech’.

    Might there not be a conflict-of-interest here?

    Indeed, some words and a few lingering controversies have been declared ‘settled’ or simply OFF LIMITS.

    Can you guess which ones?

    “Don’t you dare go there or even say such a thing! That’s ‘anti-Semitic!”

    Like ‘climate change’, the dominant Jewish narrative is now ‘settled science’. Israel is increasingly protected by an artificial iron-dome of taboos and radioactive warning bells. Quiet!

    See this: the Holocaust narrative is always running, always ‘being remembered’, always preeminent, always on prime time, always important, always unique, and always shrill.

    So STFU.

    Its pious and authoritarian tone keeps the goyim cowed and silent.

    The magic is working! Repetition. Censorship. Repetition. Censorship.

    ‘Extremist’ views must not be countenanced, you know.

    An so, unfettered political discourse is being slowly castrated. Yep, those poor, downtrodden ‘survivors’ just can’t endure the post-Holocaust stress caused by Free Speech.

    So they bought up the mainstream media and are now going after the internet.

    Ironically, we are supposed to grieve for their powerlessness and their unique victimhood as they rule Washington and oversee public airwaves and cable access.

    Thou shalt not complain. Thou shalt listen.

    Today;s opponents of contemporary Zio-fascism (my apologies to the original Fascists who were basically just anti-communist nationalists) are increasingly paralyzed by the ‘mainstream’ media and its subservient employees. The tactics they use include blacklisting and de-platforming, among others. This is the new normal.

    These worsening conditions explain why the pathetic lives of non-Jews in Israel/Palestine will likely go from awful to horrible.

    Israel’s goal is this: unconditional surrender.

    After that, the native gentiles must crawl away, pass away, or live under israeli rule as a lower caste. That’s the plan. Take your pick, kids.

    This agenda is actually quite out-in-the-open now for those who dare to look past the headlines. Astonishingly, accommodating supremacist Israel unconditionally is what ‘centrism’ in Washington now looks like. This situation is hardly new.

    Thus our political ‘leadership’, our establishment pundits and mainstream intellectuals (and their subordinates) either endorse, sit by, or say nothing critical about America’s uninterrupted flow of money, political capitol, and weapons to the world’s most powerful cabal of hapless victims.

    Yes, Americans are ‘hypnotized’, as Kevin Barrett recently explained. But this moral oversight did not occur by accident.

    The West has been groomed and conditioned to ‘not notice’ Jewish venality, political ruthlessness, and the Zionist domination of Washington.

    (“What, me? I didn’t say anything!”)

    Yes, its become socially wiser to say nothing and go with the Zionist flow.

    Bad things happen to ‘anti-Semitic’ people, you know.

    .

    No it isn’t: that’s why it’s getting all screechy up in this shit – they recognise that the Adelsons, Soroses and their ilk are all very long in the tooth, and there’s no nextGen Ashkenazi-Firsters because everyone under 60 (except Jared Kushner and about 5 other people in the world) realise that Zionist shit is retarded.

    When a fly has gotten a good dose of fly-spray, it thrashes around, and those thrashings become increasingly energetic as death approaches… flies basically thrash themselves to death because of how pyrethrin derivatives affect their nervous systems (it’s basically the Zyklon-B of the fly kingdom, but worse… because pyrethrin works).

    That’s what’s happening to the Zionist grift at the moment: their social power is waning, just as Catholicism’s social power waned from the 1960s onwards.

    The Catholic hierarchy has lost so much social power that they have been thrown under the bus by the Western political class (formerly their greatest protector)… hardly a week passes without some new revelation about long-standing Catholic misbehaviour (which was always known about… but never acknowledged or punished).

    That’s Zionism’s near future.

    Rest easy, bro. We’re winning this, which is why the lunatics are becoming more strident.

    I think the trend is toward annexation, but also they must be quietly toying with the idea of transfer for most of the West Bank Arab population, which likely would need a war for cover. It would be risky, but morality articulates opposition to the unsuccessful. There is no inevitability about Israel ceasing to think Jewish state is ethically sound, they will have to be broken by defeats. And where will those come from?

    The unprecedented international outcry after Saddam’s invasion and brief occupation of Kuwait and the subsequent “international community’s” response to that event: his ejection and a few thousand of his soldiers buried alive after surrendering. But any lessons learned about the “illegal” occupation by Iraq, do not apply to our masters, Zionist Israel. Their illegal occupation and the coming annexation has been occurring in plain sight with the “international community’s” silence deafening. The final solution being planned for the Palestinians should really be applied to the Jewish state itself. But who gets to tie the bell to the cat’s tail?

  9. @Haxo Angmark

    What do people mean by “white genocide”? Is it genocide when people elect not to have children because “the Jews” have created an unfavorable economy and are moving Muslims into the neighborhood? That’s a pretty broad definition of “genocide”!

    Text of Arab peace initiative adopted at Beirut summit

    BEIRUT, March 28 (AFP) – The official translation of the Saudi-proposed Arab peace initiative adopted
    at the annual Arab summit in Beirut, as published on the Arab League internet site:
    The Arab Peace Initiative
    The Council of the League of Arab States at the Summit Level, at its 14th Ordinary Session,
    – Reaffirming the resolution taken in June 1996 at the Cairo Extra-Ordinary Arab Summit that a just and
    comprehensive peace in the Middle East is the strategic option of the Arab Countries, to be achieved in
    accordance with International Legality, and which would require a comparable commitment on the part
    of the Israeli Government.
    – Having listened to the statement made by His Royal Highness Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in which his Highness presented his Initiative, calling for
    full Israeli withdrawal from all the Arab territories occupied since June 1967, in implementation of Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, reaffirmed by the Madrid Conference of 1991 and the land
    for peace principle, and Israel’s acceptance of an independent Palestinian State, with East Jerusalem as its capital, in return for the establishment of normal relations in the context of a comprehensive peace
    with Israel.
    – Emanating from the conviction of the Arab countries that a military solution to the conflict will not achieve peace or provide security for the parties, the council:

    1- Requests Israel to reconsider its policies and declare that a just peace is its strategic option as well.
    2- Further calls upon Israel to affirm:
    a. Full Israeli withdrawal from all the territories occupied since 1967, including the Syrian Golan Heights to the lines of June 4, 1967 as well as the remaining occupied Lebanese territories in the south of Lebanon.
    b. Achievement of a just solution to the Palestinian Refugee problem to be agreed upon in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolution 194.
    c. The acceptance of the establishment of a Sovereign Independent Palestinian State on the Palestinian territories occupied since the 4th of June 1967 in the West Bank and Gaza strip, with East Jerusalem as
    its capital.
    3. Consequently, the Arab Countries affirm the following: a. Consider the Arab-Israeli conflict ended, and enter into a peace agreement with Israel, and provide security for all the states of the region.
    b. Establish normal relations with Israel in the context of this comprehensive peace.
    4. Assures the rejection of all forms of Palestinian patriation which conflict with the special circumstances of the Arab host countries.
    5. Calls upon the Government of Israel and all Israelis to accept this initiative in order to safeguard the prospects for peace and stop the further shedding of blood, enabling the Arab Countries and Israel to
    live in peace and good neighborliness and provide future generations with security, stability, and prosperity.
    6. Invites the International Community and all countries and Organizations to support this initiative.
    7. Requests the Chairman of the Summit to form a special committee composed of some of its concerned member states and the Secretary General of the League of Arab States to pursue the necessary contacts to gain support for this initiative at all levels, particularly from the United Nations, the
    Security Council, the United States of America, the Russian Federation, the Muslim States and the European Union.

    Republican senators push for protections for Israeli Americans
    GOP lawmakers introduce bill to recognize Israeli-Americans as group protected from discrimination.

    Reuters 4/8/19

    Three Republican senators introduced a resolution that recognizes Israeli Americans as a class that deserves protections against discrimination.

    The resolution, introduced by Sens. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., “affirms that the Israeli-American community has contributed immensely to the society and culture of the United States; and condemns all forms of discrimination that aim to marginalize or disenfranchise members of the Israeli-American community.”
    Cramer, a freshman, announced the resolution Saturday at the annual meeting in Las Vegas of the Republican Jewish Coalition.
    The resolution is the result of work by the Israeli-American Civic Action Network, a relatively young group that reflects the increased activism of Israeli Americans acting and lobbying independently from the organized Jewish-American community. It plans to lobby senators from both parties to pass the non-binding resolution. A sister group, the Israeli-American Council, praised the resolution.
    An official of the Civic Action Network said the resolution came about in part because of actions taken by the boycott Israel movement that target Israeli individuals simply because they are Israeli.
    The RJC helped Cramer in the last election, running ads against the Democratic incumbent, Heidi Heitkamp. A major funder of the RJC and the Israeli-American Council is Sheldon Adelson; the RJC annual event takes place at Adelson’s Venetian casino resort.”

  24. The TUT have a pretty interesting read from Haarez, I wonder if Mr Atzmon read it as well.

    What we failed to recognize, what we did not want to acknowledge, was something that Weiss already sensed: The revolution of the labor movement, which had founded Israel and run it for decades, was dying of old age. In time, the revolution of the settlers would take its place.

    “First of all, I know that it will not happen. Practically, we see here hundreds of thousands of Jews. We see even in the eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem 300,000 Jews in the areas which were liberated in the Six Day war, so where will there be a [Palestinian] state? Even Netanyahu understands that [the most] he can afford to do here for the Arabs is no more than autonomy.”

    Let me suggest why the brainwashing didn’t work on me. In an Israeli army uniform I got plenty of brainwashing from many people in several languages. In the context of that uniform I occupied northern Sinai, southern Lebanon, this area, Gaza, East Jerusalem, I occupied everything that it was possible to occupy. And all that I have come away with was: It’s occupied. That’s all I’ve managed to come away with.
    “This brings me to the very primitive analysis of mine. About the left-wing mind.”
    Earlier in our conversation, when I’d told Weiss that I would not buy wine made in her settlement, nor in any West Bank settlement, she’d told me that this did not upset her at all. She said, “There is a right-wing mind and a left-wing mind. These are two different creations. You have a left-wing mind.”
    “Let’s say your victory is final. The West Bank stays in Israeli hands. Why shouldn’t the Palestinians here have full rights, in particular the right to vote?”
    “The reason that the Arabs of Judea and Samaria cannot have the right to vote for the Knesset is because if the Arabs should have a right to vote, it’s dangerous to the future of the Jewish nation in the land of Israel.”
    In the future, she continues, “It will all become a Jewish state. The Arabs can be here in the West Bank, not as citizens with full rights, but just human rights. But not the right to vote for the Knesset.”

    https://theuglytruth.wordpress.com/2019/04/07/must-read-for-israels-powerful-settler-movement-the-jewish-state-of-the-future-includes-syria-iraq-lebanon-and-even-iran/#more-193333

    So “Human rights” are something lesser to full rights.

    I have been saying this in another comment, that the entire concept of “human rights” is a big deception spawned by the Talmud and masonic forces. Depending on the context, “human rights ” are not full rights in Israel, but “human rights” only apply in international context for jews.

  25. @anon

    “Hatred” is a much rarer emotion than most nonsense-pedlars would have you believe: in CurrentYear there is a useful trope being pushed, i.e., that dislike or antipathy towards protected-status groups is “hatred”.

    If you look at the sort of nonsense included in the ADL’s “hate crime” statistics, giving side-eye to someone who cuts in a queue for a sandwich is antisemitic… even if you didn’t know the offender was a Red Sea Pedestrian.

    It is entirely possible to vehemently dislike Zionism (and Judaism) while having no strong feeling whatsoever towards individual “Jews”; the overwhelming bulk of anti-Zionists are like that.

    There will be people who wrongly attribute the sins of Zionism onto individual non-Zionists – either out of ignorance, or because they have been indoctrinated, or opportunistically to give rein to their desire to do violence. To the extent that those people commit violence against the person or property of anyone else, they should be held responsible to precisely the same extent as they would if it was someone of their own class .

    Also… it’s always instructive to notice when the more spittle-flecked of the anti-Zionists turns out to be an agent provocateur.

    It’s the 21st century: we have science and technology that does an increasingly-good job of explaining the physical world, and we should be trying to dismantle all social structures that are based on a bunch of primitive gibberish composed by Bronze Age idiots. At an absolute minimum we should not exempt religions from taxation: if anything religions should pay a penalty tax since they are actively try to impede the objectives of tax funds spent on education (and especially science education).

    And we should very explicitly reject the idea that primitive gibberish is a valid basis on which to claim a piece of land that nobody in the claimant clique has lived on for 2 millennia (if ever).

    Palestinian “solidarity activists”… Yeah, Palestinians are not moved by garden-variety, ethnocentric (Palestinian) nationalism (the mirror image of the Jewish nationalism, just that they are weaker). They are, like dear Gilad, citizens of the cosmopolitan world who just happen to be Palestinians, and all (I tell you, all!) they desire is not the destruction of their (ethnically defined) enemies´ state to replace them with their (ethnically defined) people. No. They just want equal rights, social services and so on. One wonders whether Gilad is stupid or dishonest.

  31. Lots of words, but little to explain anything. The Jewish people of today are not the Hebrews of the old testament. God distributed the land called Palestine among the twelve tribes. Which tribe do the current “Jews” belong to? How can they be called God’s chosen, when they do not even believe the words that God has given us in the Bible? How can people be called anti-Semites when the Jews of today are not Semites? I believe presently (because I can’t seem to get a good understanding) that the language is so convoluted regarding just exactly who the Israelite people are, it is hard to unravel. There must be someone who could give a great explanation to this leaving out all the sarcasm etc.
    One final question that really bothers me. How can the evangelicals be so determined to protect the jews in Israel when they don’t even believe in Jesus Christ our savior who died for our sins and rose from the dead to return to Heaven?

    Dude they are the ones with the guns.
    The cavalry is not coming to help the Palestinians.
    All countries have their own problems, none cares
    about those losers

  34. Annexation of the entire West Bank will probably be the beginning of downfall of Israel because I really doubt that Netanyahu is actually going to expel all Palestinians there, leading to a Greater Israel that is demographically fairly Arab. This idea is not very different from territorial expansion of white South Africa to the point that it is very black and hence prone to revolts. Lebanese Maronites made a similar mistake when they accepted a larger Lebanon.

    Settlements close to Israel proper can be annexed without too many issues in the short term though simply because the population there are actually almost all Jewish. However in the long run I don’t think this will make a lot of differences in case there is a war with the Muslim world because even the old Mandatory Palestine is way too small compared to the Middle East & North Africa.

    yeah not at all like SA, Israel is surrounded by Arabia, a huge Muslim only land mass. You know no Jews allowed, so how does that work? Israel is suppose to let Muslims run them over, where are they going to go?
    When those countries let Jews in, we can talk about the Pals.

    Well, I’m not analyzing it from a moralistic point of view. On the other hand I’m just being a Machiavellian analyst. The continued existence of Israel as a Jewish state requires both a demographic Jewish supermajority and significant military advantage over the Muslim world to deter attacks. In terms of IQ, science & technology Israel is much better than the surrounding Muslim world. More importantly Israel is fairly good in terms of social unity compared to most developed countries which is clear from its high TFR and the fact that most people serve in the IDF. However compared to Muslims who can commit suicide attacks and maybe even nuke a territory for religious reasons disregarding secular consequences it is still a bit low. Moreover the Muslim world has a lot more manpower and resources compared to Israel. Israel is also increasingly Haredi. Low Haredi participation in IDF and the economy are also potentially very serious issues for Israel. People in some Haredi groups may even betray Israel to Iran. Hence continued existence of Israel requires a very high kill ratio in any potential conflict. The requirement will just be higher and higher over time.

    I predict that Israel will develop military robots and WMD to keep potential invasion attempts at bay indefinitely.

    We non jews are not the ones who have been expelled from countries 100 times.
    History shows us what the fate of jews always is.
    Your hubris destroys you every time.
    Your slogan is not Never Again…..its Never Learn.

    I haven’t been there to check, but someone once called it a land flowing with milk and honey. Are you sure that, apart from Israeli vandalism, destroying ancient wells etc. etc., it’s a desert?

    The Philistians would do better to leave the name alone. Don’t help the monsters who scream that giving them citizenship in One State threatens the existence of Israel. Say, No, the State of Israel will still exist. Frenzy over the name, a side issue, obstructs progress. Say, Annex the whole. We are all citizens of Israel.

    The Palestinians should be calling for immediate full annexation, not the creeping annexation that is genocide of a people who are going nowhere. General Plan Ost, Hilter’s solution to the Slavic presence in the conquered land.

    Nazi Germany was not a socialist state. Hitler did not found the Nazional Socialist German Workers’ Party, he joined it and didn’t change the name. On the contrary it was the ultimate perfection of Capitalism, workers on starvation wages working ten hours a day, under the total rule of the employer. Fascism is Capitalism unrestrained, what Capitalism really looks like.

    Jesus Christ was the ultimate Socialist, with his “sell all you have and give to the poor”. Okay, voluntarily, so maybe just there you win by a whisker.

    We should be grateful to our American founders who separated Congress from religions with the first amendment to the Constitution. A Jewish state can prevail for some time in the middle east but they are surrounded by hundreds of millions of Muslims. The Islamic peoples are suffering a dark ages for now but someday they will modernize. The Jewish state will be threatened when that occurs. Who knows how long that will take, maybe hundreds of years. They don’t need to be superior or even equal to the Jews. If they have half the Israelis’ per capita economic production they will overwhelm Israel.

    A Jewish acquaintance told me Israel’s ultimate security is the disorder of Arabs.

    Your tax money is supporting Israel. So be more responsible and do sth.

    Yep. That’s the same as my analysis.
