Million $ Question - What is Israel defending?

Most people in the world naively believe that Israel is defending its people from physical attacks on their persons and property. But, that's only half the story - and not the most important half. The cold hard truth is that Israel, first and foremost, is defending a racist ideology that requires inhumane and criminal practices to implement and maintain, at all costs.

This assertion is NOT anti-semitic - it's anti-racist AND it is based on factual observations made by others, including Oren Ben-Dor, an Israeli who teaches the philosophy of law and political philosophy at University of Southampton, in his commentary "Who are the real terrorists in the Middle East? What exactly is being defended? Is it the citizens of Israel or the nature of the Israeli state?" published in The Independent UK, July 26, 2006.

READ IT, and learn the bitter answer to the million dollar question "What is Israel defending?"and, by extension, what Americans are helping them defend.
As its citizens are being killed, Israel is, yet again, inflicting death and destruction on Lebanon. It tries to portray this horror as necessary for its self-defence. Indeed, the casual observer might regard the rocket attacks on Israeli cities such as Haifa and my own home town, Nahariya, as justifying this claim.

While states should defend their citizens, states which fail this duty should be questioned and, if necessary, reconfigured. Israel is a state which, instead of defending its citizens, puts all of them, Jews as well as non-Jews, in danger.

What exactly is being defended by the violence in Gaza and Lebanon? Is it the citizens of Israel or the nature of the Israeli state? I suggest the latter. Israel's statehood is based on an unjust ideology which causes indignity and suffering for those who are classified as non-Jewish by either a religious or ethnic test.

To hide this primordial immorality, Israel fosters an image of victimhood. Provoking violence, consciously or unconsciously, against which one must defend oneself is a key feature of the victim-mentality. By perpetuating such a tragic cycle, Israel is a terrorist state like no other.

Many who wish to hide the immorality of the Israeli state do so by restricting attention to the horrors of the post-1967 occupation and talking about a two-state solution, since endorsing a Palestinian state implicitly endorses the ideology behind a Jewish one.

The very creation of Israel required an act of terror. In 1948, most of the non-Jewish indigenous people were ethnically cleansed from the part of Palestine which became Israel. This action was carefully planned. Without it, NO STATE WITH A JEWISH MAJORITY AND CHARACTER would have been possible.

Since 1948, the "Israeli Arabs", those Palestinians who avoided expulsion, have suffered continuous discrimination. Indeed, many have been internally displaced, ostensibly for "security reasons", but really to acquire their lands for Jews.

Surely Holocaust memory and Jewish longing for Eretz Israel would not be sufficient to justify ethnic cleansing and ethnocracy? To avoid the destabilisation that would result from ethical inquiry, the Israeli state must hide the core problem, by nourishing a victim mentality among Israeli Jews.

To sustain that mentality and to preserve an impression of victimhood among outsiders, Israel must breed conditions for violence. Whenever prospects of violence against it subside, Israel must do its utmost to regenerate them: the myth that it is a peace-seeking victim which has "no partner for peace" is a key panel in the screen with which Israel hides its primordial and continuing immorality.

Israel's successful campaign to silence criticism of its initial and continuing dispossession of the indigenous Palestinians leaves the latter no option but to resort to violent resistance. In the wake of electing Hamas - the only party which, in the eyes of Palestinians, has not yet given up their cause - the Palestinian population of Gaza and the West Bank were subjected to an Israeli campaign of starvation, humiliation and violence.

The insincere "withdrawal" from Gaza, and the subsequent blockade, ensured a chronicle of violence which, so far, includes Palestinian firing of Kasem rockets, the capture of an Israeli soldier and the Israeli near re-occupation of Gaza. What we witness is more hatred, more violence from Palestinians, more humiliation and collective punishments from Israelis - all useful reinforcement for the Israeli victim mentality and for the sacred cow status of Israeli statehood.

The truth is that there never could have been a partition of Palestine by ethically acceptable means. Israel was created through terror and it needs terror to cover-up its core immorality. ******Whenever there is a glimmer of stability, the state orders a targeted assassination, such as that in Sidon which preceded the current Lebanon crisis,****** knowing well that this brings not security but more violence. Israel's unilateralism and the cycle of violence nourish one another.

Amidst the violence and despite the conventional discourse which hides the root of this violence, actuality calls upon us to think. The more we silence its voice, the more violently actuality is sure to speak.

In Hebrew, the word elem (a stunned silence resulting from oppression or shock) is etymologically linked to the word almut (violence). Silence about the immoral core of Israeli statehood makes us all complicit in breeding the terrorism that threatens a catastrophe which could tear the world apart.
Israel does not defend Jews; it defends Zionism - a racist ideology that claims the right to a Jewish majority in the Biblical land of Eretz Israel - AT ALL COSTS, including everything that you see happening today in Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq.

Don't let the media fool you. This is not about "democracy" or "freedom." It's about Racism, Power and Control and they will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.

Think about it. And if you believe in justice and equal rights for ALL human beings, then DO NOT remain silent. If you do, now you KNOW what you are defending.

Please check out this site and you will find pictures of an ALLEGED rocket attack by Hizballah."he saw the rocket strike next to the MDA station), so I took the opportunity to snap a picture (all rights reserved to the Muqata blog)."


I can find TWO inconsistencies in their claim.

In this photo:

Once again 'god' has suspended the laws of physics for zionist 'israel'. Not only do 90+ story building COLLAPSE due to fire on the upper floors but now FIRE BURNS DOWN HILLS. Normally fire burns UP until there is no more left to consume(try an experiment in your back yard but please be SAFE), but it would seem that fire in 'israel' is not bound to the laws of thermodynamics. Cool!...or not.

In this next photo:

It would seem that not only does fire burn down hills but that BOMBS DO NOT LEAVE CRATERS in certain areas in 'israel'. Perhaps this was a compassion bomb and was merely meant to scare them and not harm them. Or perhaps this was a fictional account or someone was on crack and things just got out of control. Who knows.

What are they protecting?

wat movie did you just stroll out of? "..fight them now stand as one power while you can" so dramatic i must say.. you ignorant people the zionist conspiracy card is becoming way to old dont you think, you need to replace it with a different fable, maybe replace it with somethin that makes sense
you always talk about zionists,ZIONISTS,zionists, Oh these ZIONISTS, but never care to elaborate ha..
here's a dictionary defenition of zionism- " a political movement which had as its original aim the creation of a country for Jewish people, and which now works to help the development of Israel"
i see nothing wrong there, can you?
but of course you can.. you see a lot wrong in this definition because you dont like the idea of a free jewish state of israel and you dont like the idea that israel will fight when the existance of its people is being threatend, so of course you dont like zionism... but now you also have to go around using fancy words and spread fictional propaganda about a conspiracy? watever the only people you'll "recruit" will be the ignorat uneducated ones..
and whoever posted this bulshit about "what israel got to defend"
i feel sorry for you man.. and dont use some dumb professor as an example to your lies "Israeli who teaches the philosophy of law and political philosophy at University of Southampton" that professor of yours doesnt even live in israel so he should put a sock in it..
now you might actaully wanna hear the facts from some one who have lived in israel- 11 years to be exact, an i can tell you what israel got to defend and from what and from who, an the fact that you say that civilian causulties are low is only because israel takes all precaucions to protect its citizens see israel cares about its citizens, thats a new concept for you, dont even start me on the security levels that israel undertakes to protect itself againts attacks and suicide bombers.. i lived there an i can tell you that you wont get in to a shopping mall without having your bags checked first and you wont find a single school without a guard, and there wont be any house, buildings, schools without underground safety passages.. you are still gonna tell me that israel has nothing to defend and that their doing all these safety procedures out of boredom or they just dont know wat better to do with their money or energy? well this is one, but the other thing i want to say is that israel does suffer alot of loss of it citizens daily.. they blow up buses in israel, restarants, malls, basically any public place they arabs think they can get the most civilians with.. israel is the only nation in the world that daily experiences terrorism not knowing when it will hit ya, an still im happy to say israel maintains its quality of life, israeli citizens enjoy all the freedom and goods and recreation that we enjoy in western socity in u.s and canada with the only acception that the economy didnt yet level up to u.s..an of course the safety issue, which is precisly the reason why i left israel even though i love the country, aside from that palestinian problem israel is a pretty cool country to live in.. the only democratic nation in the whole of the middle east, everyone gets equal treatment even if your an arab, ye even these arabs who live in israel, i remember that one arab girl in my class, she would recieve better treatment than even i did.. i dont know how does that come of to you that jews are evil? on the other hand u tell me if i now came in into palestian territory, how would they greet me? you tell me, how? i think we both know how, nways if palestians walk along israeli streets which they do, nobody would jump them, being an israeli myself i tell you that this nation is proper! and i assure you that be it any other country like the u.s, england, france in israel's situation right now they wouldnt go so easy.. if any of these countries were attacked now they would give back without hesitation and with maximum force.. they wouldnt put up with what israel puts up now, and why does it have to answer to other countries? see people think that israel is attacking with force but the truth of the matter is that israel got the technology and resources and if it wanted to attack with ACTUAL force it would, but it doesnt and maybe it is israel's problem if they showed palestine that they wont take that crap anymore palestine would maybe give it a rest.. i very often observe that there is a certain misunderstanig when people say such things like "why does israel uses unssecary force to defend itself" im sure you heard that and probably read something like that on this forum, BUT, might i say that when israel uses "force" it is not only for defending purposes, it is a logical reaction that you need to show your enemy that you wont put up with shit anymore, otherwise the problem keeps going back and forth, which it certainly does for years between isreal an da palestinians, if israel can finish the job this war might finally end, see if these terrorists knew that they would face severe consequnces to their action they would hush up, but if they see that there's not much being done they will continue in the same course, i hope now you can finally recognize that israel is driven to use force by the enemy, and at the same time it defends itself. and maybe this doesnt apply to all wars but when it comes to palestians they just dont know when to stop and so you see my explanation is fairly logical there is no other way and the enemy knows it! i also wanted to adress this intersting analogy given by the previous commentary, about the ants and the grasshoppers...ye um i have to say i disagree for sooo many reasons.. you're saying israel is the bully and arabs are just poor helpless victims? wat a load of crap.. first of take a look at your map and see how BIG of a bully israel is in the midst of a dozen arab countries srounding it.. wow so many arab nations and land and not one wants to help out their fellow palastenians, nways dats not the point here, obviously israel ocuppies a very small land and is the only land for jews in the world, how greedy is it of these jews to have their own little land, i know.. next, lets continue examining this analogy- it is being said that arabs are ants and israel is the evil grasshopper k , lets see how anty these ants really are, below are some figures to put some things into perspective:

1:22 arab countries
1:50 population wise
1:80 territory wise

and let's not forget the oil
poor arabs fight with stones, only

on one occasion they were caught with a ship coming into Tel- Aviv full of weaponary, aha, rifles, missiles, katyusha rockets, and the list goes on.. so much for stones, not to say that it doest happen, once some arab punk tried to throw a stone at my grand father while driving in his car, says something there about parental skills- lovely, so you see my friend your analogy doesnt work out, by all means if by ants you want to refer to a vast population, that one is correct, but when putting in the helpless
element you're somewhat bluffing..
Now if you did your history H.W you'd know this:
" The name Palestine refers to a region of the eastern Mediterranean coast from the sea to the Jordan valley and from the southern Negev desert to the Galilee lake region in the north. The word itself derives from "Plesheth", a name that appears frequently in the Bible and has come into English as "Philistine". Plesheth, (root palash) was a general term meaning rolling or migratory. This referred to the Philistine's invasion and conquest of the coast from the sea. The Philistines were not Arabs nor even Semites, they were most closely related to the Greeks originating from Asia Minor and Greek localities. They did not speak Arabic. They had no connection, ethnic, linguistic or historical with Arabia or Arabs."

(from the web- palestinefacts.org)

- have you paid attention to the part where it says that palestine was the name for a group of people who INVADED, if not take another look..

- another thing to note is that this so called palestinian group had nothing wat so ever to do with arabs, interesting isnt,

and i find it intersting that these arabs fashioned themselves a name that has its origins in invasions of land..
That might give you a clue about something..

a palestinian state?

Before the Six Day war, the Gaza strip was under Egyptian rule, and Judea and Samaria (the west bank)
were under Jordnian rule.
The palestinians never had an autonomy in these areas (or in any other area for that matter). They didnt start an uprising against Egypt or Jordan.
As you can see truth exists, you just have to do a little digging.
oh and quit feeding people that zionist conspiracy shit if you want people to start taking you more seriously. That posted message was absolutly disgusting to read, once more if israel applies more "force" it does so not neccassrlyb for defense but also as a natual war tactic becuz we all know peacful negotiation with these people is not an option simpley becuz its not peace they seek, and saying that israel is racist is very hypocritical and untrue, israel allows and invites variety on the other hand it is these several who practice islam believe that there religion is the only legitamet one and dont accept other religions, who's racist? i hope this reading has been educational,
till next time..

ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY OUT OF YOUR MIND? WHOEVER POSTED THIS BLOG is insane and totally innacurate. PEOPLE .... please read about the news and visit ISRAEL just to justify this delinquents horrid and pathetic views on ISRAELI culture. you clearly are an ISLAMIC radical to believe such absurd BS. GET A LIFE and please stop trying to make a bad name for ISRAEL as well as everyone in ISRAEL (Jews, Christians, and even Muslims occupying Israel). PLEASE take your pathetic BS about Israel and shove it up somewhere it belongs. Your comments are BULLSHIT. BULLSHIT. do you understand that?

I am totally and completely disgusted by the things this person has said about Israel. Not only has he said rude comments about poeple living in Israel, but he also puts a bad name on all the constituents of Israel. It is a peaceful country, a beautiful one. Judaism is a religion in which confides in all religions. It does not say anywhere in the Torah that if you are not a believer you are doomed for hell. Or include any inclination on 'jihad' which is the belief in which many radical Islams believe in. Do you see Israeli's attaching bombs to their backs killing young and old, innocent, and good and honest people? NO , NEVER. Israel does not stoop to that level and just bomb themselves, and blow their people up. The radical Islam Parties DO!. NOT ISRAELI people. They are calm, considerate and loving people. When I went to Israel for my first time this summer, my entire beliefs on the Middle East changed. I was openly welcomed into Israel and felt at home. Therefor, please take your comments and keep them to yourself, because not only are they EVIDENTLY absurd. But they are disgusting and they can cause racism. SHAME ON YOU!

Hello, every body. I loved stopping and chating along with you guys and that's what'll propably happen . . .

I'm arabian, and it's more like i wanted you guys to have a peace of my mind, shall we?

let's get started:


I'll put this in points:

A- I quote: "here's a dictionary defenition of zionism- " a political movement which had as its original aim the creation of a country for Jewish people, and which now works to help the development of Israel"
i see nothing wrong there, can you?"

absurdly appearing to an untrained eye, this is a mere "ink on a paper" or in this case, data in a computer . . whatever . .

see, if the true meaning of zionism is what you wrote, it would've been fine HOWEVER . .

it never mentioned that the place of the country would be on another STOLEN country. And all that empty space was all what's left of the original muslims . .

and it never said anything about that the development of israel would include: murders, unathorised usage of unathorised weaponry against palastanians, nor that the new homes you're building are propably based on OTHER people's hard-grown trees an' crushed houses.

now it doesn't seem to be very reasonable now, does it?

B- after that, you kept spewing bullshit about other jews, like you . .

ain't my bizz, but I'll refer to this point later. . .

C- not that i agree with israelian people being murdured . . .

but have you ever thought about WHY are arabians are attacking you?

and besides, how many arabs are bieng killed daily?

if you ever think of typing a list of the israelian people who are killed daily, you won't finish until next week. If do the same about arabs, I won't be even close until the next 15 - 20 years. . .

D- Okay . . you kept wriating some looong lines about how cool is israel to live in, depsite the palestanian "criminals" who are just angry cuz you stole thier land or maybe just because of the other day when the "defence" army threw tear gas over a protest that originaly happened because of that 1 year-old terrorist the defence army just murdered?

wait, exactly which 1 year-old was it? The defence army murdured so many i can't remember . .

what's this? "israel is too good to do murders"? This can't get dirter, Annie.

E- I quote: "the only democratic nation in the whole of the middle east"

then why do you think we have a big ****** senate here in kuwait? Egypt? Jordan? Do your homework before you start your hallusinations, Annie.

F- I quote: "everyone gets equal treatment even if your an arab, ye even these arabs who live in israel, i remember that one arab girl in my class, she would recieve better treatment than even i did.."


remember the sweet comment you placed on the Jewish guy wich i told you that (I'll come back to later), Annie?

you don't even conseder another jewish as an equal cuz he doen't live in israel or share the same thought you do, and you say that arabs are bieng treated equaly? I'd belive you more if you said that cows fly. Ha!

besides, arab countries banned traveling to israel. so don't make it sound like I'm spending my summers shopping in israel, YUCK!

also, was that arab girl jewish? propably, since even an arabian thug wouldn't go near israel unless he's jewish.

so tell me, why can't jews come from arabia? They came from UK, france, america so why not arabian? *hint* is that discremenation? *hint*

and in the coming paragraphs you keep calling arabs "terrorists" and "enemy". some "being treated equally" that is!

get a life . . from the way ur talking on a public blog, you propably were a trouble maker in class . . .

G- I quote: "i dont know how does that come of to you that jews are evil?"

as a muslim, i respect all other religions i don't think that jews are evil. only zionism.

H- I quote : "on the other hand u tell me if i now came in into palestian territory, how would they greet me? you tell me, how? i think we both know how"

It's obvios to the rest of the world that you don't get loved by people for hating them, Annie.

I- Another loooooooooooong paragraph about how israel should kick the enemies butts, and how that they should "give it a rest". you wanna play he started it-she started it? k' I'm ready n' willing anyways, MEOW! (cat fight)

1- there was just palestine, NO ISRAEL!
2- a mad man named hertzel wanted (out of the blue) to buy palastine from it's leader
3- the leader "abd al hamid" refused the deal: "the land is not mine, it's my people's"
4- hertzel died, leaving two british leaders on the zionisic movement, Belfour an' D.wiseman
5- the arabs felt the danger of zionism, banned any jewish to enter palestine.
6- an agreement called "something I don't know how to write in english" was made between france and UK, splitting arabia between them as if it was thier own . . .
7- it kept getting worse as UK made a stupid promise to the jews. to give them palestine
8- when Uk occupied palestine, it started sending jews, to kill palestines and live on thier lands

see, Annie? You are a horrible person to say ****** about stuff you don't know, next time keep your tounge in your mouth until you know better.

J- I quote: "first of take a look at your map and see how BIG of a bully israel is in the midst of a dozen arab countries srounding it.. wow so many arab nations and land and not one wants to help out their fellow palastenians"

sure it is obvois, but 80% of the land here is desert, so shut yr yap.

look, i don't care how small your 3/4 place is, It ain't me who picked this location, talk to hertzel.

Annie, I'm tired of correcting your historical mistakes for you. Don't you know that arabs fought israel in 1948, 1956 (when israel tried to steel lands from egypt), 1967 (this time from both egypt AND syria) and finally in 1973 (when we got these lands back)

see? just because it never happend is your time doesn't mean it never did.

K- I quote: "obviously israel ocuppies a very small land and is the only land for jews in the world, how greedy is it of these jews to have their own little land"

sure they are greedy! It's not thier land in the first place!!

L- I quote (again): "1:22 arab countries
1:50 population wise
1:80 territory wise

and let's not forget the oil"

that is most ridiculous!!! it's not our fault that your small! and besides, who's the idiot who calls comparing 22 countries to 3/4 a perspective?!!

not to mention that 80% of the land is desert and that only 7 countries have a healthy source of oil. and hey! what do you want to do with our oil anyway? ( now I'm getting worried )

M- "talking about rifles and stones"

sure we'll fight with rifles! what do you want? that we stand an' watch while you're having fun killing us?

only children and teens fight with stones (common sense).

oh, and tell your grandfather that I'm very sorry on the behalf of the guy who hit him, it's against islam's rules of war to fight the elderly (which is one of the reasons I keep telling people that terrorists are'nt muslims, they only think they are) .

N- a paragraph about how palestines aren't arabs

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa! ah! you're killing me!

ok, this is ridiculous, didn't you know that a lot of arabian countries weren't arabian?

as islam expanded through the nations, so did the arabic language and nationality, It's true that palestine was under the greek control, but when greece kept picking fights with muslims that they ended up defeated.

as what was left of greece entered islam (not by force) they began to become arabians, little by little.

the entire area is now arabic, wether you beleve it or no, which doesn't matter cuz they're still muslims.

see, the bound that connects us is more than an article in a fishy website or being neighbors. It's beond blood or talking the same language.

and clearly somthing that you can't deny.

O- a stupid comment on a country's name

so you are now saing it's ok to kill arabs cuz they have a country name that means invade?

well do you know that kuwait means "little storage hut"?

Iraq means "fight"

Saudi arabia's name (in true arabic) means "happinesses"

and morocco (also in true arabic) means "where the sun sets"

obviosly you are justifieng your racisim with the funniest reasons, making a fat laugh of yourself.

P- a buncha crab I'm not gonna waste seconds of my life to answer


they're not seeking peace they're seeking justice! AND why does US keep using veto whenever they make a dicision?

true for the racist wanna-be muslims but if you asked a true muslim about islam you'd find that out prophet, mohammed said : "there is no difference between arabians nor ajameis(uropeians), black nor white, only in godliness"

so it's not fair going around telling how people are racists based on some "they think they are" while you yourself, filled your little mind with some cheesy evedences about how much of a racist YOU ARE!

J.J: For the 1000 time, terrorists are not muslims according to the rules of islam itself!

Toodles :P
