Per­ma­nent pariah

Finweek English Edition - - Letters -

IF STEPHEN MUL­HOL­LAND’S CLAIM that Is­rael has built “one of his­tory’s most dy­namic economies” then I won­der why more than 1m Is­raeli Jewish cit­i­zens are liv­ing in the United States. Is­rael is a for­eign en­tity vi­o­lently and bru­tally im­planted into the heart of the Mus­lim and Arab world, steal­ing its land and ex­pelling mil­lions of Pales­tini­ans into hor­ren­dous refugee camps. Its Zion­ist foun­da­tions man­i­fest as a racist, colo­nial­ist and ex­pan­sion­ist Is­raeli en­tity not un­like the white su­prem­a­cist apartheid state we, un­til re­cently, lived in.

Since Is­rael’s bloody birth, con­trived by the West, it’s been the re­cip­i­ent of more than US$100bn in aid and grants, far more than the Mar­shall Plan for Europe post the Sec­ond World War, and still re­ceives at least $5bn/year. So much for a thriv­ing econ­omy!

It was the Arab and Mus­lim world that pro­tected and gave so­lace to the Jews per­se­cuted and mas­sa­cred in Europe through­out the ages. There’s no Arab ha­tred for Jews per se, but for the sav­age, in­hu­man Is­raelis who maim, kill, starve and de­stroy a Pales­tinian pop­u­la­tion that gave sanc­tu­ary to the Jews in their land.

The racist Zion­ist un­der­pin­ning of Is­rael guar­an­tees its per­ma­nent pariah sta­tus in the re­gion and will as­suredly, de­spite its ar­ti­fi­cial “dy­namic” econ­omy, ex­pire ig­no­min­iously, as did apartheid SA. DR FIROZ OS­MAN
