Noam Chomsky in his recent Op-Ed in the New York Times, titled ‘Breaking the Israel-Palestine Deadlock’, have come up with a novel way of helping the Zionist entity. He suggests that the current world-wide delegitimation of Israel momentum can be reversed by “those concerned with Palestinian rights should call for Israeli takeover of the entire West Bank, followed by an anti-apartheid struggle of the South African variety that would lead to full citizenship for the Arab population there”.
Chomsky’s anology of Jewish-ruled Israel with White-ruled South Africa is nothing but his making fun of history. Though both lands were colonized by European imperialist settlers – the White colonialist in South Africa always remained in minority (9%), so was the case in British occupied Indian sub-Continent. On the other hand, the foreign Jews have become a huge majority (80%) in the Ocuupied Palestine.
Chomsky rightfully admits that the two-state solution is dead and the global delegitimation of Israel has become a serious problem. He cites Human Rights Watch call in December to suspend aid to Israel to the amount Zionist regime spend on building new illegal Jewish settlements and monitor US private Jewish and Zionist tax-exempt organizations which send money to Israel. He also cites that Amnesty International has already called for arms embargo against Israel.
However, when citing the South American countries which have announced to recognize an independent Palestine State (if PA unilaterly declares it), Chomsky distorted the areas under that state. “Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil recognized the State of Palestine (Gaza and the West Bank), bringing the number of supporting nations to more than 100,” he wrote. In reality they all have recognized the Palestine State based on Israel’s 1967 borders (Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem).
Since Chomsky doesn’t address the Palestinians’ Right of Return, the Native Muslim and Christian Palestinians will always stay a minority in their ancestral land.
When it comes to Palestinian cause, Jeff Blankfort, has called Chomsky, a Liability. In the Op-Ed, Noam Chomsky repeats his denial of the Israel Lobby’s (AIPAC) grip over US administration. “There is also a powerful Israel lobby, though of course dwarfed by the business and military lobbies,” he wrote.
“Critical cultural facts apply, too. Christian Zionism long precedes Jewish Zionism, and is not restricted to the one-third of the US population that believes in the literal truth of the Bible. When British Gen. Edmund Allenby conquered Jerusalem in 1917, the national press declared him to be Richard the Lionhearted, finally rescuing the Holy Land from the infidels,” wrote Chomsky.
The Bible these Zionists believe is Scofield Study Bible, which happens to be a distorted version of Bible – created by the Zionists. Richard the Lionhearted did not achieve victory. His army was defeated in the 3rd Crusade and Richard the Lionhearted who had executed 3,000 Muslim prisoners, men, women and children earlier in Acre was captured by Sultan Salahuddin’s soldiers. Instead of executing the King of England, Sultan treated him as a ‘royal guest’ and let him return to England. King Richard had offered earlier his sister Joan of England in marriage to Sultan’s brother with Jerusalem as the “wedding gift”.
Chomsky admits that the US is NOT an “honest broker” between the Israeli Jews and the Native Muslim and Christian Palestinians. He also believe that Palestinians’ aspiration for an independent Palestine cannot be realized without the approval of US-Israel. In other words, since it’s not going to happen in the near future, the Palestinian should abandon their armed resistance against the Jewish occupation of their land.
The good-old Jewish academic has very simple solution for the 1.5 million natives besieged inside the tiny Gaza Strip. “Defending itself from the “demographic problem” – too many non-Jews in a Jewish state – and meanwhile severing besieged Gaza from the rest of Palestine”. In other words, a ghetto-style Palestinian State in the besieged Gaza Strip only.
