The lady from Efrat says of the Palestinians: “They missed their chance.” They didn’t miss it; they sold it – at least those in the WB did.
Phil says it over and over, he shows more than one photo of Palestinian workers to drive home the point: It’s the Palestinians who are building those settlements. And they have been for 50 years. This is not slave labor; it’s paid. IOW, here’s a shekel, go slit your throat and the throats of your children. And they do.
The Palestinians built those settlements for a price, what right have they to complain now about settlements? If they claim the land is theirs, then why would they build houses for Jews on it?
I know, I know. The Palestinians are poor. They need the money. That’s the ole’ prostitutes’ rationalization. Give me a shekel and I’ll do whatever you want – maybe after a while my life will improve and I can move on to banking or politics. Americans often try to analogize from Palestinians to AmerIndians. Yeah, I don’t think so. How many AmerIndians debased themselves to the point of building towns for the white pricks who were running them off the land?
The Palestinians missed their chance alright, when they began abetting the theft of their own land. Sometimes the victim really is the architect of his own misery. As long as the Palestinians voluntarily participate in the Judiazation of the WB, I have a hard time finding sympathy for them. Instead of stabbing a bunch of iJews and getting blown away themselves, why don’t the Palestinians just quit building the Jews’ houses and laying their infrastructure?
Gaza . . . now that’s a different matter altogether.
Thanks so much for this series, David. Having just discovered your website, I am in awe of the amount of effort you have expended on what many of us perceive to be the most frightening political threat to the species, and I’m talkin’ about the Samson Option and 400 surreptitious nukes controlled by the likes of Bibi, and the violent fundamental Wahhabis/Salafis running out of control all through the region. It is not an “optimistic” mix for the future of the world as a whole.
A couple of questions:
1) Your first article left off (just before the 400!! comments) with the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine – 1922. Your second article begins with the 1947 British summary on the cock-up referred to as the British Mandate. There’s 25 very interesting years in between that include a world war. We don’t get much info on what was going on in Palestine during WWII.
You allude in this article to both Jews and Arabs supporting the British effort. But I thought the Nazis were supported by the Arabs -- that whole Desert Fox thing, which might have influenced the viewpoint of Truman in 1948 deciding whether to go with the Jews or the Arabs in the Palestine deal. Did WWII play no role in the debacle that took place in Palestine in 1948?
2) Another historical point that is never discussed is the intra-Semitic demographics of those 1.3M Jews in Palestine at the time the Mandate ended. My impression is that they were virtually all Ashkenazi from Eastern Europe/Russia, who were never all that well integrated into their communities, as rumor has it. Why would one expect them to become integrated with Arabs? I mean, my understanding is that Irgun, Stern Gang, and the other Semitic terrorist groups in Palestine were comprised of Ashkenazi. I wouldn’t want them in my back yard either, and I get along with everybody.
What fraction of the Jews in Palestine at the end of the Mandate were Sephardi? And my reason for asking it is that it seems the Sephardi did pretty well living next to and among Muslims after the fall of the Second Temple, and I’m thinking of their generally peaceful and mutually beneficial co-existence with the Arabs in N. Africa and the Moors in Andalusia in the Middle Ages (up until the Catholics started butchering them all in 1492). Did Sephardi Jews play a significant role in the Nakba? Were there Sephardi Stern Gangs? Is the analysis of this situation helped by considering differences in the histories and psychologies of Sephardi vs Ashkenazi?
I guess another way to ask the question I’m asking is this: If I had a Helen Thomas magic wand and could make all the Jews in Palestine go back to “wherever the Hell they came from,” wouldn’t most of them end up in the Ukraine, Poland, Russia, etc.?
3) When you study that map of the UN partition plan, it really is an attractive proposition from today’s viewpoint. Those two tiny points of continuity between both sides, are beautiful. Ports for both sides, access to the Jordan R. for both sides. The Jews got 55%, but most of the excess was sand. I can totally see the Arabs' point of view, but maybe it could have been another Granada . . . dreamin’ again.
You're right W.Jones, it's weird. And it's weirder if you dig down deeper than the MSM and BS have done so far.
Court documents show that Bruce Reinhart was an atty in the US Attorney's Office in the South FL district when Epstein was being investigated by the FBI. The US attorneys offered Epstein a "non-prosecution agreement" (NPA), which is rare. USAO agreed to drop the investigation of Epstein and "co-conspirators" if Epstein pled to minor state charges.
IOW, this was not a "plea bargain" because there were never even any federal charges. And that is what has everyone scratching their heads -- the FBI had good stuff on this pedophile and his "friends" for up to 40 charges of kiddie-sex and producing kiddie porn, why did they give Epstein an NPA and let them all go????
IMO when a DA does something procedurally crazy that benefits the perp and the perp is filthy rich, check the DA's bank account.
Funny thing about that: Reinhart was a US attorney involved in the Epstein case until he quit in 2008. Epstein's NPA deal went down in June, 2008.
According to Exhibit "C" in one of these cases (Epstein v. Rothstein et al) Reinhart left the USOA's office and was hired by Epstein to represent Epstein's people. For instance, Reinhart represented Epstein's young "assistant" Sarah Kellen in a deposition.
Reinhart also tried to intervene in the current Crime Victims' Rights Act case to set aside the sickening NPA deal given to Epstein. It is amazing to me that Reinhart is permitted to touch this case in any capacity.
The other interesting but unspoken thing in this case is the "lop-sided demographics". The case has been, basically, the Jane Does' lawyer Brad Edwards pitted against Epstein, Dershowitz, Reinhart, Rothstein, Weinberg. Etc. Foxman undoubtedly sees Edwards as antisemitic. I don't think so. Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew are swimming in this mess somewhere, and they ain't Jewish.
Jane Doe #3, Virginia Roberts, who is pushing this thing is now married w/ 3 kids and living in Australia. She's a brave, and now undoubtedly wealthy, lady. But I don't see a further payout for her in this action. The suit is against the USG to reopen the criminal charges, not against Epstein.
The worrying thing to me is that JD#3 claims she was provided to a famous prime minister while she was a minor. Hmmm .... Barak (and I ain't talkin' Obama) was PM during this time, and he was a good friend of Epstein. Probably just a coincidence, eh? Tony Blair was on Epstein's buddy-list, too. Who knows? But one way or the other this thing is going to be huge unless these people can be shut up.
Here's a link to Exhibit "C" -- it includes the original Dershowitz claims and a lot more.
