In 1919 Ben-Gurion, who later would become the first prime minister of Israel, saw that the Zionists were creating a problem with no just solution. "No solution! There is a gulf, and nothing can fill this guilt ... I do not know what Arab will agree that Palestine should belong to the Jews. ..We, as a nation, want this country to be ours; the Arabs, as a nation, want this country to be theirs." Later, during the Arab revolt of 1936-39 against this takeover, Ben-Gurion continued: "This is an active resistance by the Palestinians to what they regard as a usurpation of their homeland by the Jews ... But the fighting is only one aspect of the conflict, which is in its essence a political one. And politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves." 4 He proceeded to strengthen the Jewish terrorists organizations like the Irgun with more guns and explosives so that they could, with bullets when necessary, force the Arabs into relinquishing their ownership of Palestine.
In 1938, he was most explicit on what land the Zionist intended to take and make part of "Greater Israel." "The boundaries of Zionist aspiration," he told the World Council of Poale Zion is Tel aviv, "include southern Lebanon, southern Syria, today's Jordan, all of Cis-Jordan (West Bank) and the Sinai."5
Later he continued, "After we become a strong force as the result of the creation of the state, we shall abolish partition (the UN's partition which created Israel and left some of Palestine) and expand (Israel) to the whole of Palestine. The state will only be a stage in the realization of Zionism and its task is to prepare the ground for our expansion. The state will have to preserve order - not by preaching but with machine guns."6 As to the Palestine inhabitants who are in the way of all this expansion, his answer was always, "Drive them out."7
Zionists are terrorists. Their movement is a terrorist movement continuing today. Israel practices state terrorism as it implements these Zionist plans.
No one can understand the Palestinian vs Israeli conflict today, if they do not understand Zionism - it's history, policy, and methods. Zionism is essentially Jewish nationalism rooted in 19th century racist, colonialist thinking gilded over with a "religious" patina. The policy which the state of Israel is executing today is nothing more than a continuation of that Zionist policy begun in 1897. Listen:
The objective of present day Zionist Israeli policy is an intensified version of Jewish Zionist policy used by Theodor Herzl and Ben-Gurion: get rid of the Palestinians from Palestine; their methods are also the same: persecute the Palestinians so they flee, take their land, starve them through unemployment, tear up the territorial integrity of Palestine with Jewish settlements, murder them, and keep the other Middle Eastern nations dysfunctional. This is a state policy of ethnic cleansing - of slow genocide - which ends up establishing Israel as an apartheid state. Zionists have been slowly, patiently, and successfully working at this for over 100 years. Sometimes they have had to take a step back to take two forward but they have never lost their focus. Most want to establish "Greater Israel". By that they mean all of Palestine - PLUS. Many times you will hear Israeli settlers, the Likud party, or other Zionists talk about "Greater Israel". Zionists speak of the occupation of Greater Israel as a right, given to them by God. Below is a map of what the Zionist plan to be "Greater Israel."
Ben-Gurion from the beginning knew that the Jewish Zionists were the aggressors and did not care. He cared only to take the land at any cost - he used diplomacy when it succeeded, deception and lies when needed, and the Haganan (a Zionist terrorist group) when the others failed. Justice was not then and is not now a concern. Sharon is no different today. He is known as the "butcher of Sabra and Shatila" for a reason. Ohmert is no different either.8
In 1947 the Zionists got Washington to affirm their creeping takeover of Palestine. They won over President Truman, and then with his help the United Nations.
The British who were in charge of Palestine for fifty years thought it impossible to peacefully create two separate nations out of this little piece of land. They recommended to Washington and the world: one federal nation with two states. 9 But Truman, a sort of biblical Zionist himself, running for re-election in a close race that needed the Jewish vote, took the Zionist position and said in 1946 that he wanted two separate nations: Israel and Palestine. 10 In 1946, after WWII, the U.S. was more powerful than Britain.
Jewish lobbying in this country had focused on Truman and succeeded. The Jewish Agency in 1946 raised $100 million annually - money they used to pressure the President and the U.S. Congress. By then American Jews had created a mammoth lobbying machine in Washington that when activated could within days flood Congress with letters, petitions, and campaign finance donations.11
In 1947 there were 1,300,000 Arabs in Palestine along with 560,000 Jews. Over the years Zionists encouraged and financed Jewish immigration to Palestine as they continue to do today. The Nazi's brutal policies of the 1940's, (World War II) also encouraged it.
The 1947 vote in the UN to create Israel out of Palestinian land was 33 countries for, 13 against, and 10 abstentions.12 Not one Arab or predominately Muslim country voted yes. War was inevitable. And the nations of the UN knew it. The United Nations had made a terrible mistake.
This Palestinian, Arab-Jewish war, in one form or another, has gone on from 1897 until today. The Palestinian intifada and suicide bombers, Hamas and Hezbollah, along with Zionist Israel's tanks and Apache helicopters are just a continuation of it.
Today, American, Zionist Jews continue their lobbying effort by bribing Congress and the President with "campaign donations" and with a strong influence and presence in the American media to force American support for Zionist Israel and its policy of Palestinian annihilation. These American Zionists have hung Israel like an albatross around America's neck. And because they have put Israel first over American interests are bordering on being traitors to America.
Without America's support, financial and diplomatic, Zionism could not succeed. The rest of the world, especially the Arabs, know this and are today holding America and Americans accountable. The many attacks on American interests, including that of September 11th, are manifestations of it.
Here is a link to an excellent article written by a Palestinian on Zionism: Zionism Must be Dissolved for Peace
|ZionismExplained is an educational website designed to explain Zionism's goals, methods, and effects. It is designed for those with little knowledge of Zionism. Hopefully, every user will read the opening article on Zionism and then the two articles linked in the "Overview" section. After that either reading down the sections in the order laid out or hopping around as you wish should work fine. Note the website is divided into two main sections: Zionism in America andZionism in Palestine .|
