“Keep that in mind the next time AIPAC or some other hasbarist tries to pull the old con, claiming Israel “shares Western values.” It never did, and indeed, as long as it sees itself as a Jewish country, it cannot.”
This is imperialist nonsense. The United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia & most of Europe had “whites only” immigration policies through much of the 20th century, and still to this day accept only token numbers of people from non-favoured ethnic groups (and when exceptions are made, as in Germany, the people rise up in protest & carry out physical violence against the interlopers). New Zealand & Australia still automatically grant citizenship to anyone from their settler homeland the UK. Almost every European country sees itself as an “ethnostate”—and more importantly, it has been US/NATO policy to ensure that any explicitly pan-ethnic country is broken up into ethnostates: the balkanisation of the USSR and Yugoslavia are two well-known examples, and the US is also currently trying to do the same in Iraq and Syria. If there is one Western value that stands out above all others it is ethnocentrism.
It is true that the US itself has imported large numbers of non-white immigrants but this is mostly to act as a cheap reserve labour source, and the political and social structure of the US is immutably set up so as to ensure that white Europeans are the herrenvolk, the people of the land to whom the country truly “belongs” (by virtue of exterminating the majority of the native population).
Israel is not an outlier it is merely this value taken to its logical conclusion. As a puppet state of the US/NATO, Israel is essentially the imperialist vanguard, the testing ground for the future of imperialism and capitalism.
