Well Netanyahu, on being sworn in as Prime Minister, has said, “We will not let anyone question our right to exist.” (1) Therefore, I am hurrying here to set the record straight before the “most moral army in the world” wipes out half of Fürstenfeldbruck during a surgical strike on my person.
Now, if by that “right to exist” you mean we have to accept the cannibalization and ethnic cleansing of Palestine then no it cannot be accepted. However, if you mean that present day Israelis should be allowed to live peacefully in what is now Israel alongside Palestinians after a number of outstanding issues, such as UN Resolutions 194 and 242 have been addressed, then …..well, if the Palestinians can live with that so can I. What do you mean though Bibi when you talk about a state’s right to exist when that state has still to define its borders, when that state is still depriving another people of their right to exist, when that state does not accept international law and when that state does not acknowledge certain historical facts, such as the fact that it was created on someone else’s land, what do you mean Bibi?
Now Bibi if you mean we have to accept Israel as an exclusively Jewish state then no Bibi it is unacceptable, unless you want to try to establish that state, in agreement with the international community, in a part of the world that is uninhabited and as we can see in yesterday’s post the maasai were getting a trifle upset back in 1903 when it was looking for a time that Israel just might land in East Africa. If we were to accept Bibi’s drivel, we might as well just accept that post 9/11 there really has been an ongoing war on terror, we might just as well accept that Obama really is a harbringer of change and hope for the planet and we might even accept that 2+2 = 5; over to you Winston.
