Basic Facts About Israel
by J.R. Colson
Purpose: The reader may observe that, despite the ongoing claims by
Israel and its supporters that Israel is a "democracy," it is a race-based,
supremacist state funded largely by American taxpayers.
First, some physical history of the Jewish state of Israel:
Israel became a state in May, 1948; parts of what was formerly known as
British-controlled Palestine were given to Jews as the result of a
influenced-from-the-outside U.N. vote; Jews got 55% of Palestine, the
Palestinians got 45%; Jews got better land out of the deal; Western tax
dollars keep Israel afloat; U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East seems to
revolve around pleasing and protecting Israel, and ignoring all
Also, the further expansion by Israel of its territories after the 1967 war
is harshly condemned by many in the West.
American aid to Israel for fiscal year 2002: $2.04 billion in military aid and $720 million in economic aid.
Jews are neither legally nor religiously entitled to Israel.
There are several large holes in the Jewish claim:
1) The tribe of Judah, i.e. Jews, after it was banished from the rest of
the Israelite tribes, held territory up to just north of Jerusalem. This
means that any land just past Jerusalem, going north, would not belong to
Jews. Yet they do indeed hold much land north of Jerusalem; the 1947 U.N.
partition plan gave them large amounts of land north of Jerusalem.
2) The idea that Jews are entitled to land because they lived there 2,000
years ago is akin to American Indians demanding the return of, say, the
state of Oklahoma, because "they used to live there."
Further, the religious angle regarding their claim to Israel is also bogus.
All religious tomes and tracts are narrative to a degree; if they were
literal, homosexuals could now be murdered freely, for example, without any
punishment of the murderer.
Land claimed as "promised by God" is theoretically up
for grabs only if no one lives there now; also note that modern Jews
are not the same people as the Hebrews of Biblical times.
Further, as noted, Jews were banished from the rest of the
Israelite tribes; they separated from the main body of Israelites in
approximately 930 BC.; therefore they are not a true extension, ethnically
or religiously, of the rest of the Israelites.
Jewish claims concerning ownership of Israel are bogus, and they
Israel is not a "democracy."
The U. S. State Department lists Israel as a "parliamentary democracy."
The 1948 Israeli "Declaration of the Establishment of the State of
Israel" defined Israel as both a Jewish state and as a state that "will
ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its
inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex."
However, according to Israel's own laws, it is NOT a democracy; it is a
state that favors Jews, as an ethnic group, over all others.
For example, only Jews can become judges in Israel. An Arab/Palestinian
cannot; see "Basic Law: Judiciary">appointment of judges>nationality.1
In November 1975 the U.N. declared that Zionism was a form of racism in Resolution 3379. It compared Israeli racism to the apartheid practiced in South Africa at the time.
Israel's amendment of section 7A of "Basic Law: The Knesset" limits the
political platform of an Arab candidate by not allowing him to challenge
Jewish supremacy in Israel, a so-called "democratic" state.
In other words, an Arab political candidate is silenced by Jews by law. Israel is legally a Jewish state, not a democracy.
Israel routinely excludes Arabs from community boards and forums that
decide land-use and agricultural issues.
There is also lots of institutionalized racism in Israel. For example, Jews usually receive better personal treatment from Jewish officials than Arabs do.
Here is a quote from the Israel-friendly U.S. State Department, taken from a 1998 report: "Israel's Arab minority continues to suffer from institutionalized
discrimination and does not share fully in the rights granted to, and the
obligations imposed on, Jewish citizens."
The report also says: "The Government does not provide Israeli Arabs, who constitute 19 percent of the population, with the same quality of education, housing, employment, and social services as Jews. In addition, government spending is far lower in predominantly Arab areas than in Jewish areas."
Some employment positions in Israel are closed to Arabs. From the
same U.S. State Department report: "In practice, Israeli Arabs are not
allowed to work in companies with defense contracts or in security-related
fields." The same racial profiling that's anathema in Jewish America when practiced by cops is commonplace in Israel. A double standard? One of dozens ...
Israel's public schools are not equal, despite claims that Israel is a
"democracy" that treats all citizens alike.
From the 1998 State Department report: "Arab children make up about a
quarter of Israel's public school population, but government resources for
them are not equal to those for Jewish children. Many schools in Arab
communities are dilapidated and overcrowded, lack special education services
and counselors, have poor libraries, and have no sports facilities. Arab
groups also note that the public school curriculum stresses Israel's Jewish
culture and heritage."
Jews regularly demand, in America, that resources be extracted from White parents and turned over to inner cities for the education of minorities. No similar treatment for their brethren Jews in Israel.
Jews are at the forefront of the "civil rights" lawyers who deny tax status and other benefits to colleges and other institutions that favor Whites. No Jew has ever called for aid to be withheld from Israel until it obeys similar non-racist restrictions. A double standard? One of dozens...
The state of Israel was founded on terrorist acts.
Few Westerners realize that the state of Israel is a product of the same violence it denounces as terrorism when practiced by others. A double standard? One of...yeah.
After the U.N. in 1947 recommended giving parts of Palestine to Jews, large
numbers of Jews forcefully pushed their way into Palestine.
Entire Arab villages were destroyed; thousands of Arabs were murdered. Jews
murdered British soldiers in Palestine. Sometimes they tortured the British
soldiers before killing them. Many mainstream authors admit this.
Some of the Jewish terrorists became leaders of the new state:
Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir, for example.
Israel's current leader, Ariel Sharon, is now facing charges of war crimes
in a human rights court in Belgium; this for his apparent role in the mass
murders of Arab women and children, among others, in Lebanon in 1982.
Israel practices racism daily.
The U.N. has issued hundreds of resolutions condemning Israel's racism
against Palestinians. Even Amnesty International, no friend of Nazi
attitudes, has condemned Israel for its racial discrimination.
Since "Jewish" is a race first -- by long, exclusive interbreeding for
centuries -- and a religion second, the Jewish oppression of Arabs is racial,
and therefore, racism.
Those many U.N. resolutions condemning Israel can be found with the web
search engine "Google," by using such keywords/phrases as "human rights in
The Jewish religion is officially favored by the Israeli government,
despite ongoing claims that Israel is a "democracy" that treats all citizens
From the 1998 State Department report: "The Government has recognized
only Jewish holy places under the 1967 Protection of Holy Sites law,
therefore denying government funding for the preservation and protection of
Christian, Druze, Muslim, Baha'i, and other religious sites." A double standard? One of dozens...
Israel will likely drag America into a full-scale war in the Middle East.
Since America has shown that it will defend Israel at any cost, and since
the Middle East is an ethnic powder keg that could blow at any moment, and
since Israel is a tiny and greatly hated minority in the Middle East, it seems logical that sooner or later the U.S. will have to come to Israel's aid when a full-scale war breaks out.
Such a war could actually endanger U.S. citizens if Arab countries such as
Iran and Iraq possess long-range ballistic missiles at the time that such a
war breaks out.
The millions of Arabs now living in America could also become a serious
security risk in that event; even the mild-mannered among these Arabs could
violently turn against America.
Israel has no written Constitution.
Unlike most countries, Israel does not have a written Constitution. This is
by design, since no one can accuse Israel of violating the Constitutional
rights of its citizens if those rights do not exist in the first place.
Israel has only a series of written laws, called the Basic Laws.
These Laws are cleverly worded so that they do not appear to be racist, but
one can easily see otherwise if one reads the entire Laws.
For example, the Laws mention "Israeli nationality." Since Israel has
already been described by the Laws and its Declaration of Independence as
a "Jewish state," this means by default that wherever people of "Israeli
nationality" are given legal rights within the Laws, they really mean Jews,
not Arabs or Palestinians.
In 1970 Israel's Supreme Court confirmed just that -- that there is no
such thing as "Israeli nationality," only "Jewish nationality."
In 1992, the "Basic Law: Human Dignity and Freedom" was passed. This law was
created to silence Israel's critics regarding human rights. Strangely, the
wording of this newest law does not mention Arab or Palestinain "equality,"
and instead simply repeats much of the same "no citizen will be mistreated"
rhetoric Israel has spouted for years.
Israel can legally hold prisoners for up to one year in jail without
specific charges being filed
And it does, especially if the person is an Arab.
From the 1998 report: "However, a 1979 law permits detention without charge or trial, which is used in security cases. The Minister of Defense may issue a detention order for a maximum of 1 year."
The trials of such persons may be entirely secret from the public: "Cases involving national security may be tried in either military or civil courts and may be partly or wholly closed to the public." No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. But if you have ears you can hear the screams.
Non-Jews may be detained for up to a year for no reason. And, quoth the report, "The legal system often hands out far stiffer punishments to non-Jewish persons than to Jewish citizens." Put two and two together.
Israel often does not cooperate with human-rights investigations,
especially if the persons who were victimized are Arabs:"[T]he Government withheld its cooperation from the U.N. Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories."
Israel routinely spies on America and sells U. S. military technology to
The U.S. government has arrested many people inside the U.S. for spying on
America for Israel, among them Jonathan Pollard in 1985.
In fact, a U.S. Navy leader, Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, complained that Israeli spying was so common that he "stopped writing anything down." Think about that for a moment. Just who is running our country?
Just recently, during the Clinton Administration, American officials learned
of yet another Israeli spy ring inside the U.S. And post-9/11 hundreds of Israelis have been detained, and more evidence has emerged that Israel has a huge internal spy network that at the very least has a great number of hooks into our electronic communications grid, from the top down.
Does any of this change America's attitude toward Israel?
Apparently not. The U.S. still showers Israel with money, weapons and
Israel has also shown that it will not hesiate to sell U.S. military
technology to rogue states such as China and North Korea. In fact, Israel
was due to sell high-tech AWACS (Phalcon) airplanes to China in 2000, until
the U.S. learned about the horrifying deal.
Further, the Arms Export Control Act says that U.S. arms may only be used
for the purposes of "legitimate self-defense." Israel's 1981 bombing of a
nuclear facility in Iraq, the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, and the 1985 attack
on PLO headquarters in Tunisia were not "self-defense."
The full extent to which American taxpayers underwrite Israel is unknown.
"Loans" quietly become "grants" without American
citizens knowing it
Congressional investigators have learned that between 1974 and 1989, $16
billion in U.S. military loans were silently "converted" to grants, and that
this was the plan from the very beginning.
All past U.S. loans to Israel have eventually been forgiven by America,
leading Israel to crow about how she never defaults on Washington's generous
Also, since 1982 monetary aid to Israel has been given in a lump sum at the
beginning of the fiscal year, which has actually caused Washington to borrow
funds to offset the shock of such sudden payments. Most other countries get
their money quarterly. A double standard? One of dozens...
The money-oriented "Israelis" even lend some of this taxpayer money back
through U.S. treasury bills and collect any resulting interest from the
transactions -- a sly double-whammy for Jews, who invented the game of
international banking and finance.
Israel's government encourages the use of White women as sex slaves.
The human-rights group Amnesty International in May 2000 released a
stunning report about how the Israeli government knowingly allows White,
non-Jewish girls to be bought and sold, for sexual use, inside of Israel.
White girls are brought to Israel on the pretext of jobs; sometimes they are kidnapped outright. Either way the result is the same. The use of gentiles in any form is perfectly consistent with Jewish religious law, which goes so far as to state that "Even the best of the gentiles should be killed." This is what we subsidize.
High-ranking Jewish officials do nothing about sex slavery except wink at it, and sometimes aid it, since the girls in question are not Jewish; this seems to be the traditional Jewish attitude regarding harm towards non-Jews. A double standard? One of...yeah.
The political Left in America is more critical of Israel than the Right,
in most cases.
For all the talk one hears about "anti-Semitism" being found in "right-wing"
circles, that same political Right is very supportive of Israel as a whole;
witness that Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America and the aftermath of those
attacks: the Right could not bring itself to suggest that our fawning
support of Israel might be to blame for the attacks.
However, many left-wing writers DID make that claim, to the relief of
many nationalistic Whites in the West.
These left-wing writers were then denounced by "conservatives," many of whom
are Jewish today.
Israel routinely destroys non-Jewish homes in Palestine, long after
promising to stop.
Israel has greatly, and illegally, expanded its territory and punished many
non-Jews at the same time by using bulldozers to demolish Arab homes.
Israel has repeatedly promised to stop doing this, but continues.
Many Jews are now living on top of what was once an Arab home, and they
apparently have no qualms about it.
Here is a quote about the destruction of Arab villages, from Uri Davis'
book: "Having expelled the majority of the people, the Israeli authorities
then pursued the systematic destruction of their homes. Of the 500 or so
Palestinian Arab villages, some 400..... were razed to the ground by the
Israeli army during the 1948-9 war and throughout the 1950s."
On a similar "occupying and expanding" note, the U.S. State Department said
in 1998: "As a result of the 1967 War, Israel occupied the West Bank, the
Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights. The international
community does not recognize Israel's sovereignty over any part of the
Israel's government practices the collective punishment of citizens.
Under international law, specifically the 1949 Geneva Conventions,
collective punishment is a crime.
Article 33, Fourth Convention, says: "No protected person may be punished for
an offense he or she has not personally committed," and "collective
penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are
Israel practices collective punishment in two ways: 1) punishing all
Arabs/Palestinians as a group, instead of each specific individual; 2)
punishing the innocent family members of certain Arabs/Palestinians.
For example, Israel has blown up entire family houses because one family
member allegedly committed a crime.
If an Arab man opposes Jewish interests in Israel, not only will he himself
likely be punished, but his other family members may also be singled out for
various punishments, such as the denial of government benefits, subjection
to unwarranted searches and seizures, etc.
This unfair collective punishment is an effective way for Jews to prevent
Arabs from opposing various Jewish laws, customs, mandates, etc.
This is also one of the reasons why Arabs violently hate Jews in Israel.
"Israel" is not the correct title for that country.
In 1948, the Jews decided to call their new country "Israel," and have
indeed referred to themselves as "Israelites," or "Israel" collectively, for
However, that term is incorrect.
The Israelite tribe was actually a group of tribes in the old Canaan, now
The Israelite tribes actually rejected the tribe of Judah, i. e. Jews,
because they would not accept the then-emerging concept of "one god for all
people." The Jews insisted on having their own god and beliefs. They desired
separation from the rest of mankind; they demanded uniqueness and
specialness, just as they do today.
The Jews, i.e. Judah, were divorced from the Israelites, and they relocated
to South Canaan, while the rest of the Israelites stayed in North Canaan,
except the Benjaminites, who resided with/near the Jews in South Canaan.
Note that modern Jewish writers claim the opposite of the above: they claim
that the non-Judah Israelites seceded from the Judah and Benjaminite
The correct name for Israel would be "Judah," or possibly "Judea."
1 States that only an "Israeli national" can become a judge; as noted above regarding Israel's High Court statement in 1970, this means "Jewish" by default, since there is no such legal thing as a non-Jewish "Israeli national."
