Discrimination of the Jews

A French opinion :
" monopolist, exploiter and corrupter "





I cannot say, exactly,  why almost all the Jews
were discriminated and persecuted
during the whole course of History.

I can only say 3 things, with certainty  :

1- The Golden Age of  any Jews and of Judaism
     was only under the Arab/Muslim rule.

2Until 1948 and until Palestine was stolen
 we the Arabs , did not consider them as our enemies
nor as inferior , nor as aggressors ,
nor as occupiers , nor as usurpers,
nor as intruders,
nor as racist-colonialists...

3- The Israelis of the twentieth century
have nothing in common with
any character from the Bible stories
nor even any Bible myths.
(any Greek-person has more historical-claim on today´s Turkey
than any "Jew " has on Palestine )

It has been almost four years since the last post on this blog. No matter, it still exists here does it not? I must thank you sir for posting this topic as it is an important one, and it is important that you know how I, a Jew, view these three statements... I shall address them in order of most valid to least valid.

"1. The Golden Age of any Jews and of Judaism was only under the Arab/Muslim rule."

This one is valid, though it wasn't really our Golden Age it was yours, and we benefited from it.

"3. The Israelis of the twentieth century have nothing in common with any character from the Bible stories nor even any Bible myths. (any Greek-person has more historical-claim on today´s Turkey than any "Jew " has on Palestine)"

Translation: "The Hebrew language does not exist, the Arabic Language is indigenous to Palestine. Everything that Sholomo Sand says is absolutely right, Jews are a made up people and Judaism is a made up religion. Jews today are really all a bunch of Poles and Khazars. And even if they were a real people the Statute of limitation on the Jew's claim to Palestine (or it would appear even their right to live there) has expired." I may not like Likud but given the frequency with which I have heard the above opinions expressed by Arabs I cannot say that I'm surprised Israeli Jews vote for them. Reading this does make one think that negotiation are pointless and that we should do anything we want to because they are pointless. The part about how Jews today are can't claim to represent ancient Jews is especially ironic coming from a man who is a Maronite but calls himself an Arab. As if there was some intrinsic connection between him and the Arabs who invaded the Byzantine Empire fourteen hundred years ago. But I digress, the biggest difference between the situation of the Jews and the Greeks (or the Moricos) is that the Greeks are not a stateless people without Asia Minor. I should also ask, if the statute of limitations has expired for us when will it expire for the Palestinian refugees?

"2. Until 1948 and until Palestine was stolen, we the Arabs , did not consider them as our enemies nor as inferior , nor as aggressors , nor as occupiers , nor as usurpers, nor as intruders, nor as racist-colonialists..."

Now this is what I call revisionist history. The idea that the Palestinian Arabs harbored no animosity towards Jews before 1948 is profoundly ignorant. According to this author the pogroms in Hebron, Jaffa, Safed, Tiberias, Jerusalem, etc... did not happen. No sir, there was no xenophobia in Ottoman or British Palestine, it was flowers and butterflies and everyone was inclusive. After all it's not like the British banned all Jewish immigration to colony during the war in order to prevent communal violence, oh wait... But they did do that didn't they? And the reason why they did that is because of your people's xenophobia whether you want to admit it or not. The Palestinian Arabs never once saw the Jewish immigrants and refugees coming to their shores as anything but intruders, and they demonstrated that in places like Hebron and Jaffa, whose Jewish communities were destroyed by pogroms launched by nationalists suspicious of us Jewish usurpers. Such hospitality! Ironically most of the the Jews they expelled had been living in those two towns for centuries and were not recent arrivals, but it made no difference. They were still outsiders.

Why was (and in certain places still is) there such great discrimination against the Jews? Because the only people who care about Jews are other Jews. The Palestinians and most Arabs, Muslims, and far leftists nowadays in general never turn down the opportunity to demonstrate that sentiment in their various writings. After all, when you ask an Arab what they think the Israeli Jews fate will be when they reconquer Palestine, they shrug and say: "That's their problem."
