Why does Netanyahu’s national approval rating go up the more he slaughters Gazan civilians? Why does an IDF soldier say that Palestinians are “monkeys, dogs, gorillas. They aren’t human. We are.”
Why does a T shirt popular with Israeli soldiers depict a pregnant Palestinian woman with the words: “One shot, two kills.” Why does Gilad Sharon son of Ariel, say that Gaza should be flattened with nuclear weapons? Why do Israeli teenagers tweet, “I spit on you, you stinking Arabs,” “From the bottom of my heart, I wish for Arabs to be torched,” and “Arabs may you be paralyzed & die with great suffering!”
That is just a few hotheads, you might say. But Netanyahu’s approval rating is 90% That is just their natural reaction to being “attacked” by Hamas, you say. But Israeli racism preceded Hamas, which, by the way, was created by the Israeli government to weaken Arafat. How could the descendants of the Holocaust become malignant racists, of all things?
“Racism isn’t born, folks, it’s taught. I have a two-year-old son. You know what he hates? Naps! End of list.” – Denis Leary
Race hatred for Palestinians is taught from an early age, according to an article in The Economist. Forty-nine percent of “texts dealing with Palestinians in Israeli state-issued schoolbooks are negative, in government-funded Orthodox Jewish academies, the figure rises to 73%. One such text book depicts Arabs as “bloodthirsty” and a “nest of murderers.”
While Palestinian texts are also biased, when the report came out, the Palestinian Prime Minister asked for help to improve the curriculum, while Netanyahu’s office cried, “Malicious slander.” “Malicious slander” and “anti-Semitism” was also the reply to U.N. resolution 3379, which called Zionism “a form of racism and social discrimination.”
Israeli Ambassador Chaim Herzog said, “For us, the Jewish people, this is no more than a piece of paper and we shall treat it as such.” Then he tore the resolution in half. Israel got the Resolution revoked as a condition of participating in the 1991 Madrid peace Conference.
It is important to know that Zionism was ethnocentric from the beginning in spite of the fact that the Balfour Declaration, which supposedly legitimized the Zionist project, clearly states as a condition, “it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.”
Yossef Weitz, director of Transfer Committee 1948:
“We must work out a secret plan based on the removal of the Arabs…and include it in American politics.”
“Not one village, not one [Arab] tribe should be left.”—Weitz

There is no Zionism, colonization or Jewish state without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands.-PM Ariel Sharon
The Palestinians are like crocodiles-PM Ehud Barak
We shall reduce the Palestinians to a community of woodcutters and waiters.-PM Yitzak Rabin
The Palestinians are as grasshoppers in our sight.-PM Yitzak Shamir
What is to be done? Well-armed racists can inflict devastation on a weak population unless they are stopped. They will not stop because their conscience bothers them, they must BE stopped.
But won’t the racism and hatred continue forever? No, and it cannot. Racism contains the seeds of its own destruction. America’s racist society has changed a great deal in my lifetime. The more time passes, the more old hatreds die out. Israel and Palestine can both be free.
From Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness:
“They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder on a great scale, and men going at it blind as it is very proper for those who tackle the darkness. The conquest of the earth, which mostly means taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look at it too much…”
