Israel’s Great Victory

26 05 2014

Despite everything else, including the damning “Apartheid” label with regard to the “Occupation” and the “Wall”, the “Jews only by-pass words” and the “checkpoints”, the basic Israeli ideology of Zionism has achieved great victories in recent years.

One of the greatest victories came courtesy of Pope Francis yesterday.  He became the first Pope in history to endorse Zionism and the ethnic cleansing that resulted by laying a wreath at the grave of Theodore Herzl, founder of Zionism and “The Jewish State”.

Back in 1975 the U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution which “determine[d] that Zionism  is a form of  racism and racial discrimination”.  The Israelis and Americans got this resolution rescinded in 1991.

Back to Herzl.  One has to wonder if the Pope was made aware of Herzl’s role in creating the ideology that resulted in the expulsion, the “ethnic cleansing”, of the Palestinians which in turn lead to the creation of Israel and what remains the heart of the conflict over the “Holy Land”, the Palestinian refugees now more than 7+ million strong, even more than today’s Jewish population of Israel.  In his own words:

“We must expropriate gently the private property on the state assigned to us. We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it employment in our country. The property owners will come over to our side. Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and circumspectly. Let the owners of the immoveable property believe that they are cheating us, selling us things for more than they are worth. But we are not going to sell them anything back.”
