Who Will Remember the Palestinians?

Israel should relocate the Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank to the Arab world

…North Korea recently murdered South Koreans with a blatant act of war, and the United Nations did nothing because China wanted it to do nothing. Iran routinely stones people, mostly women, to death for crimes such as “adultery” (which includes being a rape victim) and “world opinion” says nothing and does even less. Iran also kidnapped three American citizens in a blatant act of war, and released one (Sarah Shourd) only after receiving half a million dollars in ransom: the modus operandi of the Barbary Pirates. Russia on the other hand just applied Rule 303 to Somali pirates who attacked a Russian ship, and the world did not say much about that either. That is a hint to Israel on how it should handle terrorists.

Even more recently, it was revealed that Henry Kissinger said “”And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.” Why should this come as a shock or a surprise? The sainted Franklin Delano Roosevelt (God the Father to the National “Jewish” “Democratic” Council) did not think it an American concern when the Soviet Union starved seven million Ukrainians to death, and he himself put Japanese-American citizens into concentration camps. Little was said and less was done when Saddam Hussein used poison gas against the Kurds. How did the world community “punish” Iran for hanging Baha’i s and stoning women to death? It gave Iran a seat on the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Libya also suffered no consequences for holding several Bulgarian nurses hostage and threatening to shoot them.

As of this very day, Mainland China’s perversion of medical science–specifically the blood typing of political prisoners to facilitate the harvesting of their organs for China’s rulers and perhaps anybody who has enough money to buy a transplant organ–is as bad as anything the Nazi “doctor” Joseph Mengele ever did. China is a member of the UN Security Council, and again the world says very little and does even less.

If the Arabs succeed in wiping Israel off the map, they will not be punished by any Nuremberg court or any other agency; the only punishment they fear involves the consequences of failure. These consequences were not sufficiently severe in 1948, 1956, or 1967 to act as a deterrent. The other side of this coin is, however, that Israel can probably get away with simply removing the Palestinians in a relatively humane matter.

As an example, Israel could pack the Palestinians onto ships with whatever they can carry on their backs plus some money in the currency of whatever country to which they are to be sent. A “reverse Gaza flotilla” could drop them off in Turkey, which seems to like them and would doubtlessly be happy to accept a couple of hundred thousand of them. Saudi Arabia should be more than willing to extend Arab hospitality to another few hundred thousand fellow Muslims, and so on. This would remove the open sore that Israel’s enemies are currently using to bleed it dry, and are using an excuse for violence against Israel–much as Hitler used the Sudeten Germans to justify his attacks on Czechoslovakia.

The bottom line is that the Athenians’ observation in Thucydides’ Melian Dialogue is correct: “You know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.” The fact that everybody knows about Athens while very few know about the Melians is yet another example of Hitler’s observation about the Armenians. Or, as a German proverb puts it, you must be either the hammer or the anvil; if you don’t do the beating, you will be beaten.

It is past time for Israel to become the hammer so it will no longer be the anvil. Israel must use its physical power to do what it can to protect its safety and security; the Palestinians, having chosen collectively to take the path of violence and hatred, will have to suffer what they must. If Israel fails in the basic duty of a sovereign state to protect its citizens and its own existence, a future Adolf Hitler may say, “Who remembers Israel?” and he will be just as correct as the original Hitler was about the Armenians. It is better that future historians say instead, “Who remembers the Palestinians?
