Reparation for Lost Palestinian Property inside Israel

Nearly 60 years have passed since Palestinians lost access to their properties in West Jerusalem and other parts of historic Palestine now under Israeli sovereignty. Despite the United Nations determination in 1948 that the “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date”1, the nascent State of Israel enacted laws to bar their return and expropriate their property. To date, Palestinians have not been allowed to repatriate or repossess their properties nor have they received compensation for their losses. The injustice of the unresolved dispossession is exemplified by the case of former Palestinian residents of West Jerusalem, many of whom live in East Jerusalem within a few kilometres of ancestral homes that remain intact but occupied, often by recent Jewish immigrants.

How Palestine Became Israel

The Catastrophe (Al Nakba)

“November 29th, commemorating the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.”

If Americans Knew

In the late 1800s a small, fanatic movement called “political Zionism” began in Europe. Its goal was to create a Jewish state somewhere in the world. Its leaders settled on the ancient and long-inhabited land of Palestine for the location of this state.
Palestine’s population at this time was approximately ninety-six percent non-Jewish (primarily Muslim and Christian).

Over the coming decades Zionist leaders used various strategies to accomplish their goal of taking over Palestine:
Encouraging Jewish immigration to Palestine, partly through the invention of such deceptive slogans as “a land without a people for a people without a land,” when, in fact, the land was already inhabited. Since the majority of jewish people were not Zionists until after WWII, Zionists used an array of misleading strategies, including secret collaboration with the Nazis, to push immigration.

Convincing a “Great Power” to back this process. By turn, Zionists approached the Ottomans, the British, and the U.S. to further their cause. While the Ottomans turned them down, the British (being promised that American Zionists would push the U.S. to enter World War I on the side of England) eventually acceded, as did the U.S. (due to concerns of politicians like Harry Truman that they would lose elections otherwise).

Buying up the land (sometimes through subterfuges), proclaiming it Jewish for all eternity, and refusing to allow non-jewish people to live or work on the purchased land. This was called “redeeming” the land and was financed by a variety of means, including by such wealthy banking families as the Rothschilds.

Violence, if such financial dispossession should fail or prove too slow – as it did.
In the 1930s, Jewish land ownership had increased from approximately 1% to just over 6% of the land, and violence had increased as well. With the emergence of several Zionist terrorist gangs (whose ranks included a number of future Prime Ministers of Israel), there was violent conflict. Numerous people of all ethnicities were killed – then, as now, the large majority of them Christian and Muslim Palestinians.7

Re: Palestinian-Israeli Conflict For Beginners: How Palestine became Israel
WHY IS THE STATE OF ISRAEL SO TERRIBLY SINFUL AND SO TERRIBLY WRONG?

There was once a king exiled from the nation he himself had established when rebels betrayed him, overthrew his rule, and removed him from power. This new regime built a parliament and enacted new laws directly contrary to those established by the old king. Understandably, of course, when elections are needed to re-elect and reinforce the policies of the rebellious government, loyal supporters of the original king are sympathetic and heartbroken. Furthermore, if those who were close to the old king cooperate in the elections or, even worse, participate in this sinful congress, forgiveness will never be granted them when the emperor is returned to his former power. When the awaited day comes and the rightful kingdom is restored, it is understood that those having no connection whatsoever with the revolution or its government and rules will be enormously rewarded. Conversely, however, those revolting and not sympathizing with the plight of their king will be terribly punished.

This is exactly the way the secular State of Israel can be portrayed.

A Democracy represents its people. Every voting person is participating in the government. Electing someone to represent him in congress is the same as appearing there himself to voice his opinion.

There is no way whatsoever to destroy their vile plans. By voting and taking part in this “Kenesset” you admit and agree that this is a right place and that what they do is right. You just help them perform more wrong doings. Nothing exists without compromise. There is no choice but to surrender to many of their terrible acts.

Forever, in all generations, have all trusted Rabbonim and Jewish leaders resented any such type of establishment. Today, as well, Rabbis strongly protest any similar act.

In the 1800’s many (26) Gedolim prohibited electing and participating in a Jewish congress in Hungary that did not agree to obey the Torah rules. It was wrong, even if it was in the forbidden state of Israel (as long as we are in exile). It was not even in a privately owned land (which we are not yet allowed to have) and still it was not good.

Over eighty years ago Rabbi Yosef Chaim Zonnenfeld, may his memory be blessed, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and ruling over many other Rabbis, objected to a Jewish parliament in Israel that did not adhere to the teachings of the Torah.

Rabbi Zonnenfeld Israel was under English rule at that time, the parliament was not in full charge of the country, and yet it was wrong.
The Torah is our only constitution and there is nothing above it. As long as we Jews are in exile we ought to bow and be humble to all other nations of the world. Raise your heads and show the world. The “Kenesset” stand for just the contrary. They vigorously fight and don’t surrender to the Arabs.

When the Arabs lived in Israel they were very good neighbors with Jewish population. By cooperating in the “sinful” elections or by being part of the “sinful Kenesset” itself you consent to the idea to fight and overthrow the Arabs. This is a terrible fault according to the Torah.

Hundreds of thousands of ultra-orthodox Jews all over the world, including many in Israel itself, fiercely resent these elections. It is as the true loyal supporters of Hashem-God and his Holy Torah, which the pain and sympathy for the original king evokes in our hearts when these revolting elections come forward. It’s as if the rebellion is happening once again when the elections renew the Kenesset so sinfully.

Until we are freed from our exile, we shall never own Israel but must patiently wait for our Messiah to come to us. He will give back this Holy Nation to the suffering Jews who owned it before the exile began. Then will be the grand time when Hashem-God will finally return to his rightful place and do right for those that did right to him and rightful punishment to those who did wrong to him.

Again and again the State of Israel, the “Kenesset” and now more importantly, the elections are terrible sins according to the Torah. We true Jews shout: “It is wrong, wrong, wrong!!


TRUE TORAH JEWS DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ZIONIST STATE ELECTIONS
True Torah Jews participate in the government elections of their host countries, but are forbidden by tenets of their faith to participate in elections in the Zionist State which calls itself 'Israel'. This article explains why.

OPPOSITION TO ISRAELI ELECTIONS
March 2006:

Israel, March 28, 2006
Orthodox Jews in the so-called State of "Israel" demonstrated their opposition to the elections.

MASSES OF ORTHODOX JEWS OPPOSE ISRAELI ELECTIONS AS SINFUL
January, 2003:

The worldwide view of the recent Israeli elections, as reported in the media, suffers from the mistaken belief that all Orthodox Jews patronize and support the State of Israel, its parliament, and its rules when, in fact, a great number of Orthodox Jews are in opposition to what it taking place in Israel and believe that many Israeli Jews and their leaders have forsaken their duties to Judaism and the True Torah guidance.

Therefore, to dispel this mistaken view, we wish to state clearly and precisely that the Jewish people have always been far removed from involvement in the business of government, including elections. Opposition to the involvement in government continues to this day.


Israel, January 28, 2003
The true Rabbis have prohibited and demanded that observant Jews refrain from such involvement. Over the years and in present times they have published letters and advertisements to explain and spread the reason why it is a terrible sin to support Israel, the Kenesset, or their elections.

We are confident in our statements. According to our Holy Torah every form of sovereignty, especially in Israel, is a rebellious and betrayful act.All that participate, by any means, in Israel, the Kenesset, or their elections, take part in this rebellion and we shall not join them.


Grand Rebbe Joel Teitelbaum
Some years ago about 94 Rabbis from across the globe, headed by Satmar Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, may his memory be blessed, gave their signatures to boycott elections in Israel. Participating in elections was prohibited throughout the years by Major Rabbis and that prohibition is still respected today by the ultra-orthodox population. They and we are trying to persuade even more religious Jews to admit the truth. The statistics confirm that the number of people refraining from voting continues to escalate each time elections occur in Israel.

This year, 2003, for the sixteenth time since Israeli elections began in 1949, the Grand Beth Din of Jerusalem and the Central Rabbinical Congress of the United States and Canada have put a boycott on these sinful elections. Each time elections took place they renewed their prohibitions. They proclaim that it is an absolute crime to be part of these sinful elections. This belief was presented by “all” previous Rabbis and may no one deny this fact by not obeying. It was just simple and nobody even thought that something else could be right.

Lately, when the Zionists campaigned for the State of Israel, false Rabbis have had the audacity to change the true Torah Theory. They had, and still have, no permission whatsoever to do so.

In 1961 a letter was published with 36 more Rabbis adding their signatures to the previous list. They stated: “May nobody be a part of Israel, Kenesset, or elections.” Various Rabbis, including many Sephardic leaders (not only Ashkenas, but all united Jews) have restated the sin that one should stay far from Israel, Kenesset and elections. This declaration, to step back as much as possible from Kenesset and their elections, was accepted by hundreds of thousands of Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel. They have received support from hundreds of thousands of Jews from all over the world that feel the same pain that the Zionists have caused Hashem-God, the Torah, and the Jews.

Many major public gatherings were arranged to explain the sin of joining in the elections. Brochures were distributed explicitly boycotting the Kenesset and the elections.

Anti-Semitism: What it IS and is NOT

By Alan Hart

QUOTE An anti-Semite used to be a person who disliked Jews. Now it is a person who Jews dislike UNQUOTE

Those are the words of my dear Jewish friend, Nazi (Auschwitz) holocaust survivor Dr. Hajo Myer. They are taken from page 179 of his magnificent book An Ethical Tradition Betrayed – The End of Judaism (published in 2007).
Hajo was making a point in passing which had been provoked in his mind by an incident that happened in the Netherlands where he lives. Gretta Duisenberg, the wife of the former European Central Bank President Wim Duisenberg, hoisted a Palestinian flag at her home as a protest against Israel’s actions in the occupied territories. Her Jewish neighbours saw to it that their accusation that she was anti-Semitic went viral, and a Jewish lawyer not only sought to press a charge against her, he approached the Jewish World Congress in New York with the suggestion that Wim Duisenberg should be declared persona non grata in the United States. That affair, Hajo wrote, “reflects a caustic, contemporary definition of the term anti-Semite.” Then came his own redefinition as quoted above.

In the light of the false charges of anti-Semitism that were levelled against British Liberal Democratic MP David Ward for telling the truth, and then against Gerald Scarfe for his anti-Netanyahu cartoon in the Sunday Times which reflected (yes, in a grotesque way) the truth, I would expand Hajo’s definition as follows. An anti-Semite today is a truth-telling person Jews who support the Zionist state of Israel RIGHT OR WRONG not only dislike but want to silence.

That last statement of mine should not be taken to imply that I am a denier of the existence of anti-Semitism. It is on the rise due mainly to the Zionist (not Jewish) state’s brutal oppression of the Palestinians and on-going colonization of their West Bank land and water in open defiance of, and contempt for, international law and UN Security Council resolutions.

Also true is that a number of web sites which reflect mainly American and European views are alive and crawling with the most vile expressions of anti-Semitism. That said, I think it’s more than possible that some of the anti-Semitic excrement in comments on web sites is the work of Zionist assets for the purpose of discrediting by association those of us who seek to tell the truth. (The web site of Veterans Today is an example of what I mean. It is one of quite a few sites that publish my articles, but many of the comments under them do not engage with what I have written. They spew out hatred of Jews and deny the obscenity of the Nazi holocaust. As I wrote in Volume One of my book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, I think holocaust denial is as obscene and wicked as the great crime itself).

The main point I want to convey in this article is that it really, really, really is time for peoples of all faiths and none everywhere to understand that it is perfectly possible to be passionately anti-Zionist (anti Zionism’s colonial enterprise), and fiercely condemnatory of the policies of Zionism’s in-Israel leaders, without being in any way, shape or form anti-Semitic. The assertion of those Jews (a minority of the whole?) who support Israel right or wrong that criticism of Israel’s leaders and their policies is a manifestation of hatred for all Jews everywhere is c-r-a-z-y. It can only come from traumatized minds which have been brainwashed by Zionist propaganda.

In my view real understanding requires knowledge of the following.
There are two definitions of anti-Semitism in its Jewish context. One was born in real history and represents a truth. The other is part and parcel of Zionist mythology and was invented for the purpose of blackmailing non-Jewish Europeans and North Americans into refraining from criticising Israel or, to be more precise, staying silent when its leaders demonstrate their absolute contempt for international law and resort to state terrorism.

Anti-Semitism properly and honestly defined in its Jewish context is prejudice against and loathing, even hatred, of Jews, all Jews everywhere, just because they are Jews. (I say “anti-Semitism in its Jewish context” because there is another context. Arabs are also Semitic peoples. A real and true anti-Semite is therefore one who is prejudiced against and lathes, even hates, both Jews and Arabs).

Anti-Semitism as defined by Zionism, the colonial, ethnic cleansing enterprise of some Jews, has come to mean almost all criticism of Israel’s policies and actions. Put another way, anti-Semitism as defined by supporters of Israel right or wrong is anything written or said by anybody who challenges and contradicts Zionism’s version of events. In effect Jewish supporters of Israel right or wrong say, “If you disagree with us, you’re anti-Semitic.”

As a blackmail card to silence criticism of Israel and prevent informed and honest debate about who must do what and why for justice and peace in the Middle East, Zionism’s false charge of anti-Semitism has worked wonderfully well to date. Why? In the long (and still present) shadow of the obscenity of the Nazi holocaust, a European crime for which, effectively, the Arabs were punished, there are few things Westerners in public life, politicians and media people especially, fear more than being accused of anti-Semitism. The charge – even when false as it most often is – can destroy careers.

Unable to refute the substance of documented and objective messages of challenge and criticism, Zionism’s policy always was, and is, to shoot the messengers, usually with smears for bullets.

For complete understanding of what anti-Semitism is and is not, it’s necessary to know what Zionism is and is not.

Zionism claims to be the nationalist movement of “the Jews”, all Jews everywhere. But this claim, like almost all of its claims, does not bear examination.

As I document in detail in my book, the truth is that from Zionism’s foundation and first dishonest mission statement in 1897 until the Nazi holocaust, its colonial enterprise was endorsed and supported by only a tiny minority of the world’s Jews and was opposed by many eminent Jewish leaders.

Also true is that from Israel’s unilateral declaration of independence in 1948 until the countdown to the 1967 war, many Jews of the world had no great affinity with Israel. They were in their chosen places as integrated citizens of many nations and Israeli Jews were in their chosen place, gained, mainly, by Zionist terrorism and ethnic cleansing. (During his time as prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s founding father, expressed dismay that not enough European and North American Jews wanted to move to Israel and become citizens of it).

For very many Jews of the world the 1967 war was a dramatic turning point in their relationship with Israel because they believed – were conditioned by Zionism and the mainstream Western media to believe – that poor little Israel was in danger of annihilation. Thus Israel’s survival (not to mention its conquest of more Arab land) against impossible odds was a source of great pride for most Jews of the world.

Though most Jews didn’t and still don’t want to know it, the truth was different. The Arabs did not attack first and were not intending to attack. The 1967 war was one of Israeli aggression. For Israel’s military and political hawks the grabbing of the West Bank including Arab East Jerusalem was the unfinished business of 1948. Taking the Syrian Golan Heights was a bonus.
Today much (meaning not quite all) of what supporters of Israel right or wrong claim to be anti-Semitism is actually anti-Israelism, which in my view is best described as anti-Zionism. And contrary to the assertions of Zionism’s spin doctors, anti-Zionism is not by definition anti-Semitism.

Short or long, any discussion of anti-Semitism should include the fact that Zionism needs it. The first to acknowledge this was none other than Theodore Herzl, Zionism’s founding father. In one of his diaries, not published until 1962, Herzl wrote (and probably said to some of his close associates) the following:
“Anti-Semitism is a propelling force which, like the wave of the future, will bring Jews into the promised land. Anti-Semitism has grown and continues to grow – and so do I.”

He was right. Without the anti-Semitism unleashed by Adolf Hitler, Zionism’s colonial enterprise would almost certainly have been doomed to failure for lack of enough Jewish support.

Today Zionism needs anti-Semitism, or what it can present as anti-Semitism, to go on justifying its policies and actions.

Any discussion of anti-Semitism should also take note of the words of Yehoshafat Harkabi, Israel’s longest serving Director of Military Intelligence. In his book Israel’s Fateful Hour, he wrote:
“I believe it was a damaging error on Menachem Begin’s part to insinuate that criticism of Israel is a manifestation of anti-Semitism. There is a recklessness in the grandiose assertion that ‘the whole world is against us.’ If indeed the whole world is against Israel, its future is very bleak. Only those intoxicated with their own greatness can believe that they can succeed in overcoming the entire world.”

In the same book Harkabi gave this warning:
“Israel is the criterion according to which all Jews will tend to be judged. Israel as a Jewish state is an example of the Jewish character, which finds free and concentrated expression within it. Anti-Semitism has deep and historical roots. Nevertheless, any flaw in Israeli conduct, which initially is cited as anti-Israelism, is likely to be transformed into empirical proof of the validity of anti-Semitism. It would be a tragic irony if the Jewish state, which was intended to solve the problem of anti-Semitism, was to become a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism. Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world.”
From the mid 1980’s when those words were written, Israel’s “misconduct” has been the prime cause in the rise of what Zionism presents as anti-Semitism but which is actually anti-Israelism/anti Zionism.

Today the biggest danger to the Jews of the world is, as Harkabi warned, that anti-Israelism/anti-Zionism will be transformed into anti-Semitism, with the consequence at some point of another great turning against Jews.
My own view is that such a catastrophe will most likely happen unless the citizens of the mainly Gentile Western world among whom most Jews live are assisted to understand why it is perfectly possible to be passionately anti-Zionist (opposed to Zionism’s still on-going colonial enterprise) without being in any way, shape or form anti-Semitic.

If the day of understanding comes, it will mark the beginning of the end of Zionism’s freedom and ability to impose its will on the governments of the world that matter most (as well as on the Palestinians) and to remain above and beyond international law.

Footnote
A few of those who put comments under my articles on various web sites, most notably that of Veterans Today, assert that I am an apologist for Zionism. If they really believe that, they are certifiably m-a-d. But perhaps there is another explanation. Perhaps they are acting for Zionism and it’s their way of seeking to destroy my credibility with those who know that I truly believe Zionism is the cancer at the heart of international affairs…?
