Fighting for Israel

That we are “fighting for Israel” or the Jews is a tired trope of both the far right and left.

I personally oppose the existence of the State of Israel. Zionism is an irrendentist/revanchist (or to be simple, let’s just say fascist) philosophy of the late 19th/early 20th centuries. The idea that certain ethnic groups had “homelands” that were “theirs” was very much in vogue at the time, as the old empires collapsed. Along with Copmmunism this led to a fantastic amount of bloodshed, in particular that of Jews who various people were trying to get out of “their” “homeland”. During this time the Jews were also violently expelling people from “their” “homeland”, look up “Irgun” on Wikipedia.

The last empire, the British, broke up after WWII and somehow somebody got the idea to “give” part of Transjordan to the Jews. The non-jews residing there were not consulted about this, and they were not happy about it but they were ethnically cleansed out of the area.

I hope we have now established I’m not a Zionist tool. That said, THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE WEST AND ISLAM DOES NOT NOW, NOR HAS IT EVER HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH JEWS, OR ISRAEL, AND WOULD EXIST IF JEWS AND ISRAEL DID NOT EXIST, AND WOULD CONTINUE IF JEWS AND ISRAEL WERE WIPED OUT.

Islam has been attacking Europe off and on for as long as it has existed. It will continue to do so until it is crushed and humiliated in its nerve center, the Arabian peninsula. The fact that some Jews in the executive branch are advocating the policy means nothing. If there was a Democratic administration there would be Jews in it advocating a policy of appeasement.

I’m glad Charles Martel didn’t stand up before the Battle of Tours and say “Hey, we’re just fighting for the Jews, let’s stop all this warmongering and go home.”

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
