|Agnus Dei - Fernando de Zurbarán|
There is this movement called BDS (Boycott Divestment and Sanctions) that makes some reckless claims against Israel; I was told that the AAAS (Association for Asian American Studies) and the ASA (American Studies Association) added their voice to the Arabs' catcall; certain multinational companies claim to be shocked at the racial discrimination practised in Israel; some European countries, under the command of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Lady Catherine Ashton, have also validated the Arab collective hysteria and even - go figure - the AUCHAN group joined the bandwagon.
My dear readers, the so-called political activists - described above - can only be trying to convince the most distracted of individuals that, beyond any reasonable doubt, there is apartheid in Israel. That is, the Sudanese refugees, the Ethiopian Jews and the Arabs living there are segregated in their squalid slums with no rights to basic infrastructure; that they are subjected to curfews; that they have no rights of association; that they can't vote; that the secret police is constantly breathing on their neck; that they do not have the right to profess their religion and they are forced to speak Hebraikander; that there are political prisoners in Israel who are tortured to death; that public restrooms and drinking fountains have a sign saying "Fair-skinned Jews only" and "Scum only"; that hospitals have separate wards; that schools and universities practise segregation; that in restaurants and hotels the darker ones can only get in through the back door etc, etc...
I don't think Israel should feel outraged by the American Academic Associations because those same organisations did not speak out against their own educational system when it allowed certain states to make use of racism to preclude the intellectual and cultural development of America's black citizens.
Those so-called scholars, that now unilaterally single out Israel, are the same that have great intellectual orgasms when Arab schools teach their children that Jews are to be exterminated and that Christian infidels should be beheaded.
The multinational companies that support the boycott did so because they had to accept Arab shareholders into their business so that they "win" access to great opportunities to modernise/westernise the United Arab Emirates, through real estate projects - albeit megalomaniacally corny - and thus draw eccentric millionaires.
The financial institutions that also participate in the boycott-orgy do so because they trade in the stock exchange in Arab countries. One of those financial institutions is the Danish Danske Bank that seems to be involved in nuclear missile transactions with North Korea and Iran.
Regarding the European countries that participate in the outbreak of collective hysteria, conducted by the unsightly Lady Catherine Ashton, we should not be the least surprised because they all helped Germany to exterminate her Jewish fellow-citizens; therefore, all Israel has to do is to have a thicker skin because this Euro-fact is recurrent.
About the Auchan group: it also joined the shuk of boycott. I suppose they have made their calculations and reached the conclusion that their Jewish clients do not have that much impact (or none at all) in their coffers. It's either that or they intend to open a supermarket chain...in Dubai?
AUCHAN, tu fais honte à voir...voilá!
Now, a direct message to the Arab (in Palestine) Chief Negotiator in the peace talks, Mr Erekat Saeb: you said, in public, that when Joshua (the son of Nun) arrived in Jericho your people was already there. Well, if what you say is true, then surely you remember the outcome of that episode: God delivered Jericho in the hands of the Children of Israel and the only survivors were Miss Rahab and her family.
I am like the philosopher who said "I only know that I know nothing" however:
Boycott - the academic boycott was the first measure taken by the Hitler regime, when millions of Jewish books were burned in the streets of Germany and, as a reward for their intellectuality, the Jews were sent to concentration camps.
Divestment has also been used twice in Europe when 1- the Europeans, in a concerted move, expelled the Jews from their countries and stole everything they possessed; 2- the Nazis, in the WWII, nationalised all Jewish businesses and, for having been such a hard working community, they were recompensed with a gas shower.
Sanctions is another mechanism that has been being implemented by the Arab League since 1945. Well, I am waiting for the Arabs to tell me how well did that work.
The Foreign Affairs and Security Policy department of the European Union, through the High Representative, is behaving in the exact same way as the Mufti of Jerusalem - with the Arab support - when he went to the führer to beseech him "not to allow the return" of the Jews to Israel because the Arabs feared for their safety.
In my opinion, the Jews should not - under no circumstance - deliver Judea and Samaria for if the anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism/anti-Israel rises in Europe, and other parts of the world, the Jewish people can go back to their country of origin. The Arabs in Palestine can always go back to Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and Libya.
Europe, or even the world, can't force the Jews to divide the indivisible inasmuch as Israel is the natural Jewish sanctuary of those scattered around the world. No place or people have the same affinities or characteristics related to the Jews - by the way, I think Israel should start rethinking the Gaza Strip, because it was never Egyptian and it never will be, period.
If by any chance, and business à l'árabe, the world wishes to uproot the Jewish People from Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem; I think it better ready itself for a Third World War.
May Peace be upon you!
