Between the Arabs and Israelis? Yes that too. But I am thinking of my own latest exchange with the former Swedish Primeminister. In a subject he dubbed as "Hebron Horror"
, I would however rather call it showing colors. (Red color is Bildt comments, Blue colors are my comments -sorry about that, no pun intended i guess). Perhaps an example of political diplomacy peace talks?Mr Bildt.
“You not only deny the Muslims the Prophet Abraham - I guess you deny him to the Christians as well”
I most certainly do not. Please explain to me how the Jewish patriarch Abraham could be a Muslim some two thousand years before Islam existed?“- but also want to deny them the state that now has the support of the United Nations, the European Union, the United States, Russia as well as the new government of the state of Israel.”
While I am grateful for your answers, I am however more interested in your personal answers regarding your own politics, than seeing you pointing towards other political leaders, and their various agendas.Meanwhile, time for a small history revaluation for those who might suffer from amnesia.Just prior to World War II, the leaders of our world gathered to speak about “the issue” of Czechoslovakia. Stalin representing Communist Russia, Hitler representing national socialistic Germany and Neville Chamberlain representing the colonial rule Britannia. They agreed, that the Czechoslovakian sudet-land somehow belonged to Germany, over the head of the democracy of Czechoslovakia. A happy Chamberlain returned to his British parliament proudly declaring the now infamous line “I believe there is Peace in our time”. Adolph Hitler a couple of months later proved that the land he just had tricked the world, to gain without firing a bullet, the natural mountain defense lines of the sudet-land, and it was the first stage of raping Europe in blazing flames.Now, in your opinion, was that decision rightfully just because outside political leaders could and overruled the democracy of Czechoslovakia? If not, why does the world suggest a very similar repetition now aimed at the only Jewish democracy?“I get sorry when I see the hatred coming out of you.[...]I'm only reassured by my knowledge that your extreme views are considered extreme and unrepresentative in Israel as well."Really? It’s not that you are trying to dismiss me (and common logics) with judgmental harsh words? Meanwhile, let these words, written already in 1996, echo:
‘The Arab campaign to keep all of West Bank free of Jews, like the campaign of the 1930s to keep Palestine free of Jews, may have garnered international support, but this is based, now as then, not on justice but on injustice. Thus the Jewish state, which was squeezed by violations of international promises and by Arab conquest to an indefensible coast, that saw Jews forcibly expelled from the ancient Jewish cities they had come to rebuild, that was attacked by Arab forces from the surrounding mountains, is now being told by virtually the entire world that it must accept a confined and stifling existence on the narrow shoreline dominated by a hostile ”Judenrein” Palestinian state on these same mountains, the very heart of the Jewish home. If Lord Cecil had proclaimed “Judea for the Jews. Arabia for the Arabs” the world was now saying “Arabia for the Arabs –And Judea too”. The reversal of casualties was now complete.
‘For the PLO is an Pan-Arab Trojan horse, a gift that the Arabs has been trying to coax the West into accepting for over twenty years, so that the West in turn can force Israel to let in the gates. The Arabs paint their gift up prettily with legitimacy, with the pathos of its plight, with expressions of love for the cherished ideas of freedom, justice and peace. Yet no matter how its dressed up to conceal the fact, the ultimate aim of this gift remains; to be allowed within Israel’s defensive wall, to be parked on the hills overlooking Tel-Aviv, whence it can perform its grisly task. Every inch of western acceptance –the cover stories, the banquets, the observer status, the embassies, and any territory the PLO has ever been able to get their hands on –it uses to push it ever closer to its goal. And while it is difficult for uninitiated Westerners to imagine the Arabs destroying Israel as the Greeks laid waste to Troy, it all to easy for anyone familiar with Israel’s terrain to imagine, precisely as Arafat has promised, that a PLO state implanted ten miles from the beaches of Tel Aviv would be a mortal danger to the Jewish state.’Know who wrote that? Yes that’s right, it’s your colleague Mr Benjamin Netanyahu in his self-explanatory book I previously just had recommended for you. The anti-terrorist expert and formerly elite soldier who also are the former Prime Minister of Israel and top head within Israel’s democratic ruling party Likud. I believe he could be regarded as representative for some Israelis?SincerelySimulev
