ALPERN AT LARGE - As the very liberal-yet-independent-minded Bill Maher just proclaimed, don’t go to college--particularly an elite college--because it makes you stupid!
And if not stupid, then you are ignorant…or at the very least as ignorant as the young tools used in the 1930’s and 1940’s in Nazi Germany who were “educated”, indoctrinated, and empowered to be tools of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Regime: Hitler Youth.
Israel didn’t give away Gaza for independence in 2005 because they want to keep Palestinians underfoot and enslaved, and ditto for the Oslo Accords and efforts dating back a century ago to give local Arabs their own independent homeland, either.
But Gaza did overwhelmingly elect Hamas to rule over that stretch of land, thereby establishing it as a terrorist-run state with funds directly from a terrorist nation: Iran.
While the academic, media-driven, and United Nations-supported efforts are conflating the killings of terrorist and genocidal leaders of Gaza who target innocents (particularly children, and the younger the better), with Israeli Jews guilty only of trying to defend themselves (while still trying to provide a two-state solution)…
Well, they have become enablers of terrorism. And a whole lot of ignorant and/or Jew-hating fools have opted to follow these hateful Pied Pipers into Nazi-like bloodshed.
The killers of Gazans trying to flee to Egypt: Hamas.
The killers of Israeli children, and particularly unarmed Israeli civilians: Hamas.
And now, after decades of useless and bloody wars fighting Israel, and who have either expelled or will NOT allow the Gazans to relocate to their nation, who are they:
Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon. Other nations who have expelled the Palestinians over the decades include not only Israel’s immediate neighbors but other Arab nations throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
So go ahead—pretend that the region dubbed by the Romans, Turks, and British as “Palestine” equates to an official nation for the Arabs who (like the Jews) haved lived there for centuries…and with the Jews there first…
…but for some reason Israel isn’t allowed to exist.
Both deserve nations, after all these centuries, but somehow Israel is still not allowed to exist.
The “colonizers” narrative is being pushed by those who at best are ignorant and/or indoctrinated by similarly ignorant and/or indoctrinated professors and media editors/journalists and/or United Nations tools…
…or at worst this narrative is being pushed by those professors, media editors/journalists, and/or United Nations modern-day Nazis who are quite happy with Jews and Jew-hatred.
The reason there’s no Palestinian nation, and a two-nation solution: Palestinians and Iran-sponsored terrorists.
The reason there’s still an effort to create a co-existing two-nation solution: Israel and the West.
And make no bones about it: for the Jew-haters, they’re mostly those who despise Christianity no less. After Israel destroyed, it’s the West, which includes Westerners of all creeds and religions, as we saw in 9/11, who are in the sights of the terrorists and their hardline-Left enablers.
What they hate, of course, and I mean reeeeeeeeeally hate, are Jews, Christians, and the West who have the temerity to NOT die, and to instead fight back.
After all, how many Israelis and Americans and Europeans are supposed to die in a neverending tit-for-tat between the educated and uneducated, and between those who want peace and those who want war…while blaming Israel and the West?
After all, who are slaughtering fleeing Gazan civilians who seek nothing more than to escape to Egypt during the current fighting? Hamas and its supporters.
After all, who blew up the Gazan hospital? Hamas and its supporters.
After all, who is the absolute #1 killer of Gazans since the Gaza Strip was unilaterally granted independence by Israel in 2005? Hamas and its supporters.
So go ahead, you modern-day Hitler Pro-Hamas youth. Listen to your bigoted and/or ignorant professors, and listen to brilliant thought leaders like Greta Thunberg and the drooling morons at Harvard, UCLA, and other major universities, or to pro-violent Jew- and America-haters Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
But what they’re preaching is NOT history. It’s anything BUT history.
Pick up a history book, and learn for real how we got to this critical juncture.
You might just even learn something.
“When peace comes we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons. Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”
