Well, sometimes when we hear the jingoistic nonsense coming from England’s green and pleasant land, the ranting and raving of France’s ‘Front National’, or the racist verbal diarrhea spouted forth here, there and everywhere in Europe, we might forget that the homogeneous ethnic national state is fated to be a thing of the past in an increasingly multi-cultural West. Nevertheless, despite the obnoxious residue that seeps out of the gutter and despite some of vile trends which might be detected, this is not 1933 and methinks what we have here is one aspect of society where there will be no turning the clock back. Yes, long gone are the days of a mythical racially pure Germany and …… “Gott sei Dank.”
No need to explain the “Gott sei Dank.” in any detail, of course. However, if you do delve into the reasons for that particular expression of relief, you might find it an almost strange coincidence that it is when we get to that oxymoronic Jewish “democracy”, which really likes to claim it’s belonging to the West, that we not only find the Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, warning that “illegal infiltrators flooding the country” were threatening the security and identity of the Jewish state”, but we also have Miri Regev, a member of the Israeli parliament, telling a crowd that “the Sudanese are a cancer in our body.”
Well, got to admire the chutzpah; “illegal infiltrators” and “threatening security and identity“ from the Prime Minister of a country which is on someone else’s land, and which continues to expand its borders through ethnic cleansing. Still Bibi’s hypocrisy is essential to Israel’s raison d’être and if we are not going to agree with him, we can at least understand him. He is, after all, a Zionist and, however we might abhor Zionists, they are not Nazis, are they? A rhetorical question which might be answered with “no, they aren’t”, until Miri Regev with his “the Sudanese are a cancer in our body,” comes along.
“A cancer in our body” and all of a sudden we are confronted with a member of the Israeli parliament using a form of discourse that wouldn’t have been out-of-place in a copy of Julius Streicher’s “Der Stürmer”. Or, and apologies here to Pastor Niemoller, “first they came for the Arabs and I said nothing …. then they came for the Africans and then they came for me …. ” Well, not me, but methinks it is time for the citizens of the oxymoronic Jewish “democracy” to decide what planet they want to live on.
