Since Judaism and Islam have a lot in common,
the actions of each religion's extremist side are quite similar.
The same beliefs, the same goals, the same methods. And the same
It is permitted to lie for the sacred goal.
In fact, it is a requirement. As the Bible commands: Thou shalt wage war
the Jewish side, the deceit revolves entirely around the concept of
"security." The leaders of the messianic "Black Revolution" know
perfectly well that the public is not about to mobilize for the insane
cause of settlements in the heart of Palestinian territory. Only few are
prepared to die for the cause of "Greater Israel." Slogans such as "Not
an inch" and "Liberated territory will not be relinquished" evoke
nowadays only a derisive chuckle.
Every Israeli wants "security." Jewish
history, the holocaust, a century of struggle on the land -- all of
these have created a hunger for absolute, total security, unlike
anywhere else in the world. In the name of such security, any
abomination can be justified, the most revolting thing can be made pure,
and any intention can be disguised.
Which is why the settlers no longer speak of
the bells of salvation, of the days of Messiah, of the cleansing of the
land of the "Ishmaelites" (see Sefi Rakhlevsky's book "The Messiah's
Donkey"). The seeds of insanity have found their way to Hebron and
a dozen other sites, all in the name of security. Now these places
have to be defended in the name of security. The return of one
percent of the West Bank endangers their concept of security.
Peace itself is a terrible danger to security.
This is, of course, a completely false claim.
In truth, security is an entirely inconsequential matter to these
settlers and their admirers. They are prepared to risk their children's
lives every day in order to reach their goal. In their view, the
secularists are the Seed of Amalek, and their deaths are insignificant.
But they have succeeded so well with this brainwashing about security
that all the Israeli media have bought it, repeating this lie every day.
For the sake of security, Netanyahu is prepared to put an end to the
peace process and lead the country into a new century of regional
All that it would take to burst this bubble
of deceit would be the answer to one simple question: If the problem of
security were to be absolutely solved, would the fanatics be willing
then to turn over the entire West Bank and the Gaza Strip to the
Palestinians? To dismantle the settlements? To reach
compromise on the matter of Jerusalem? The answer is, of course,
an absolute "NO." End of the lie.
For the Palestinian extremists, the big lie
is now called "human rights." Anyone who wants to bury the peace
process talks of "human rights." Left-wingers, who not too long
ago worshipped Stalin and justified the slaughter of millions, now have
taken up the cause of human rights in Ramallah. Religious
fanatics, whose entire aim is to establish in Palestine a government
like that of the Taliban in Afghanistan, or at the very least like that
of Homeini in Iran, speak all day long about "human rights" which are
being trampled by the abominable Palestinian Authority.
Public polls indicate that the vast majority
of the Palestinian population wants peace. It cannot be swayed by
the vision of a fundamentalist regime that imprisons its women at home
and which abdicates all of its power in favor of an extreme religious
faction. That public no longer believes in the religious decree
that turns all of Palestine into an islamic "Wakf" (islamic property)
which would prohibit Palestinians from relinquishing a square inch to
the Jews. Palestinians yearn for peace and quiet, and they believe
that Arafat can deliver it.
Which is why the extremists do not speak of
their true goals, except when among themselves, in their homes and in
their mosques. Outside, they speak of human rights. The evil
Arafat persecutes those innocent faithful who have done no wrong.
He violates human rights.
The Internet is full of their noise.
Their words are disseminated all over the world, courtesy of the Israeli
However, here, too, one can ask just one
simple question: Were Arafat to sanctify every single human right,
and if the Palestinian police were to behave like its Swiss counterparts
-- would then the religious extremists cease their war against the
Palestinian Authority and the peace process?
The Moslem extremists play dumb: They are not
trying to undermine Arafat at all, they say, nor to fight the elected
Palestinian government. God forbid they should raise their hand
against their Palestinian brothers. All they want is to carry out
bloody acts against the Israelis. So why is Arafat so hostile to
This is a very sophisticated lie. The
Palestinian Authority, like any elected government, is expected to run
state affairs. To that end, it must have control over all of the
armed forces. It can not allow splinter armed factions to wage
their private wars, because this would prevent any chance of setting a
national strategic course, to conduct state affairs and sign agreements.
Those who plant a bomb in the Mahane Yehuda marketplace of West
Jerusalem intend to destroy the agreement signed by Arafat, and in this
manner, destroy the elected government of the Palestinian Authority.
It is a direct assault on Palestinian democracy. But talk of
human rights is intended to deceive the Palestinian public.
It is all very simple: The Israelis
deserve security. Naturally. The Palestinians deserve human
rights. Naturally. But the Israelis will not achieve
security through the settlers, just as the Palestinians will not achieve
their human rights from Hamas and Jihad. Both will lead to
disaster, bloodshed and mutual hatred. And in order to fight the
extremists of both sides, one must first rip off their masks.
