Why did zionists create the state of Israel. Couldn’t they just live in peace with Palestine?
The network of dynastic families controlling the Federal Reserve and the Bank Of England had developed a sure-fire way of skimming off the wealth of nations. But what happens when a small cluster of families gets to accumulate more wealth than say Belgium? A country could confiscate its mansions, sieze the gold that lies beneath their estates and start detaining the elder males. With this sort of wealth you are going to need your own armed forces and secret police. You will need your own new nation that you control more totally then the existing great powers. This is one of many reasons for these guys to develop their own personal Israel.
Now consider the Jews showing up on this thread claiming that there was no Palestine. Just a tabula rasa and there for the taking. We can see invalid nature of this claim by way of hypothetical comparison; Prior to Indias independence from the British Empire there was no seperate and independent India. Since India was part of the Empire ……… I don’t think I need to go further in rubbishing this particularly obnoxious meme.
Back to the question: This time from another angle. The angle of “the tyranny of everyone’s second choice.” Suppose we just had to have one language for the planet? I imagine more people speak Cantonese as their first language than English. So the whole world would differ on its first choice. But English would win out because it is many peoples second choice. It is the preeminent second language.
Suppose we had to hold the summer Olympics in the same city every time? Despite Greece not currently being rich or powerful, Athens would be a strong contender. Since while only a few people might nominate Athens as their preferred venue, still many would tend to nominate Athens as their second option.
I think something like that was going on within the zionist movement.
Another line of enquiry would be the Jewish heresy angle. This is the hypothetical idea that many powerful Jews came under the influence of the Sabbatean/Frankist cult. The cult is sometimes alleged to have had (what one would have thought to be) quixotic ambitions to do with running a mighty empire out of the holy lands. This is a heresy but it may have caught traction with people who can make things happen.
Just to address another myth bandied about on this thread…… For starters the Jews were not scattered to the four winds by the Romans. Most of them stayed and eventually became Christian. Many of them were later to convert to Islam under slow pressure of dhimmitude. And their own religious documentation has the Hebrews brutally stealing the territory in the first place. Every angle you look at it from, their real estate claims are just bizarre and wrong.
As to the land that people like the Rothschilds and Montiefores bought up to usurp a political entity from under the Palestinian people’s prior claim …. this is dirty money skimmed from society through banking rackets and other dubious undertakings.
How about the Balfour declaration? Thats just a letter. No money changed hands and letters from one man to another are not legitimate real estate claims. So how about the arbitrage behind the letter? While Germany had offered a reasonable peace which would have saved many millions of lives ……. The alleged payment in kind was to keep the war going by getting the American media and American Jewry to bring the United States into the war. If this is not the meaning of the letter than it is only a letter. And actually a very short one. From Mr Balfour to Mr Rothschild. A piece of paper. Addressed to a private citizen. Not some sort of covenant or treaty. It was not carved in stone nor pulled from a burning bush.
Prolonging war at the cost of massive blood and treasure is not a valid real estate claim either.
