'Israel's little Hitler' petitie aan Jordaanse koning

A few years ago Eldad suggested that non-Jews were not true human beings. He was quoted as saying during a protest against the eviction by the Israeli army of a small settler outpost in the West Bank that "it was sad that the army was treating real human beings as if they were Arabs."

Per email werd ik door een lezer op de hoogte gebracht van een petitie van het ultrarechtse racistische parlementslid - en vriend van Geert Wilders - Aryeh Eldad. De petitie roept de koning van Jordanië op om van zijn land DE Palestijnse staat te maken. In een begeleidend schrijven (.doc) lezen we o.a. weer dezelfde nonsens over de 'rechten' van joden op Palestijns land; dat Palestijnen (meestal aangeduid als "the Arabs") niet deugen, geen vrede willen, en alleen tot doel hebben alle joden uit te roeien; en ook een waarschuwing aan de Jordaanse koning: wanneer hij de Palestijnse vluchtelingen nu niet opneemt zullen ze later heel Jordanië veroveren. De "Arabs" die in Israël willen blijven wonen, mogen dat, maar ze zullen geen burgerrechten krijgen: "Citizenship is only for Jews".

De ideeën van Eldad - en zijn ideologiegenoot Geert Wilders - bewijzen weer eens dat deze extremisten gevaarlijk dicht tegen de ideeën van de nazi's in de vorige eeuw aanchurken, met dien verschil dat het Nicht für Juden is veranderd in Allein für Juden. Een andere richting, maar uit dezelfde hoek, namelijk het antisemitisme, dat aan joden een aparte status toedicht, die anders behandeld moeten worden als andere mensen. Of dat verboden of privileges betreft maakt in wezen niet uit.

Zo zijn er op de Westelijke Jordaanoever hele Allein für Juden ghetto's verrezen, al dan niet met geweld veroverd. En de wegen die het gebied doorkruisen om deze nederzettingen met elkaar te verbinden zijn ook Allein für Juden. De autochtonen, die minder waard zijn dan joden, mogen er geen gebruik van maken, en moeten soms uren omrijden, al dan niet getreiterd en vernederd bij diverse willekeurige checkpoints van het bezettingsleger.

Israel's Little Hitler

Uprooted Palestinians | By Khalid Amayreh | 28.05.2009

There is always fresh evidence justifying the Israeli-Nazi analogy. In recent days and weeks, a number of Israeli officials and lawmakers proposed "draft laws" that would effectively formalize Israel's de facto racism and seriously restrict the human and civil rights of Israel’s non-Jewish citizens.
One of the proposals being discussed would criminalize the commemoration of Nakba by Palestinians holding the Israeli citizenship. Predictably, the brazenly racist proposal has infuriated Israel’s 1.5-million-strong Palestinian community.

One Israeli Palestinian parliamentarian compared the proposed law with an imagined promulgation by Germany of a law banning all Jewish activities commemorating the holocaust.

The lawmaker's remarks are not far-fetched. After all, the Nakba or catastrophe is the Palestinian holocaust, whether we like or not. True, the scope may not be identical in both cases. However, it is also true that Zionists have wrested the Palestinian people historical homeland form its rightful native inhabitants, destroyed their homes and towns, and expelled them to the four corners of the globe.

More to the point, the Palestinians are the longest-suffering people in modern history. They are still being haphazardly killed in the hundreds and thousands by a Gestapo-like army which claims to be the "most moral army in the world." Palestinian homes are still being demolished, Palestinian land is still being stolen on a daily basis, and millions of Palestinians in the West Bank and especially Gaza Strip are still being hounded, starved, tormented, savaged and terrorized by the very country that shamelessly claims to be the only true democracy in the Middle East.

Aryeh Eldad

One of the most thuggish Israeli leaders who has been promoting Israel's manifestly racist discourse against non-Jews in general and Palestinians in particular is Aryeh Eldad of the Nazi-like Ichud Leumi, or National Union.
This party holds more or less the same ideas and perceptions toward the Palestinian people that the German Nazis held against the Jews and other “Untermenschen.” It advocates genocide, ethnic cleansing, discriminatory treatment of non-Jews as well as wanton home demolitions and land confiscation of land owned by Palestinians.

Some of the party's associates have called for "wiping off the goyim (non-Jews) from the Land of Israel pursuant Biblical methods."

The term "Biblical methods" refer to the genocidal wars the ancient Israelites waged against the Canaanite tribes in Palestine as recorded in the Bible.
A few days ago, Eldad proposed that Jordan be "transformed" into a Palestinian state and that Palestinians in the West Bank be granted the Jordanian citizenship.

The proposal would impose the Israeli sovereignty on "all mandatory Palestine" from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean and prepare the psychological and legal grounds for the ultimate deportation of the estimated 5.1 million Palestinians from their ancestral homeland.

Interestingly, many Israeli leaders from various political parties have expressed keen interest in the diabolical proposal. Indeed, those who voiced reservations about the proposal did so on the ground that it was "unrealistic” and “impractical” not immoral and criminal.

In fact, even Labor party lawmakers in the Likud-led government voted in favor of referring the proposal to further discussion by the Knesset.
Eldad has a long history of making bluntly fascist and racist provocations against the Palestinians on both sides of the Green Line as well as against Islam and Muslims.

Nearly six months ago, he hosted in West Jerusalem a virulently anti-Islam "seminar" in which a number of fascist-minded speakers from Israel and abroad took part.

The one-day seminar was addressed by notorious Islamophobes such as Daniel Pipes, an American-Jewish supremacist, Dutch Legislator Greet Wilders and Eldad himself.

After making characteristically venomous remarks against Islam, the Quran and Muslims, Wilders received a standing ovation.

A few years ago Eldad suggested that non-Jews were not true human beings.
He was quoted as saying during a protest against the eviction by the Israeli army of a small settler outpost in the West Bank that "it was sad that the army was treating real human beings as if they were Arabs."

Eldad has also been a focal advocate of ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in East Jerusalem where successive Israeli governments have been trying to besiege Arab demographic presence while actively encouraging Jewish settlement activities in and around the occupied Arab city. (lees verder)
