I don’t often try to talk about Israel, or Jews for that matter, although times are steadily getting more exciting for these people. This is because memory of the Holocaust now is beginning to fade. It is fading from those still living, from even those born like me a little time after it happened, and will pass soon into the realm of faded grainy phtographs, hearsay, legend and generations gone, like WW1 has just fully done.
It seems the “Palestinians”, whoever they might be this week, have released an Israeli sergeant whom they nobbled a few years ago. There has been some argy-bargy inside Israel I gather, under which his family (I would not have wanted to be them, even in exchange for the world) successfully persuaded the Israeli government to proceed with what looks like an apocalyptic course of action, in releasing over 1,000 “Palestinian” prisoners in exchange for him.
One might be forgiven for drawing comfort from this, in that it says clearly that one Israeli citizen is worth over 1,000 of that country’s enemies, and I do hope their government tries manfully to capitalise on this rather obvious and axiomatic point.
But I’m afraid that the opposite tactical view will prevail as the inventors of “Palestine” – Western socialists and other Nazis to a man – own what Sean Gabb has dubbed “the agreed terms of public discourse”. It will then be agreed to be “correct and balanced” to say or to imply the following:
“Israel thinks it is in such a weak position strategically that it has to offer 1,000 “falsely-detained-freedom-fighters in exchange…” [for a crumb.]
Never mind that to a first approximation, 100% of them will be ne’er-do-well villains. The GramscoStaliNazi left-Media of the West can be relied on to flag this and trumpet it fully of course. Just watch.
I do not see good results coming out of this at all, although I expect the poor fellow’s family are relieved. Oh well, more work for poor tired vilifed Mossad, I suppose, in having to round up 1,000 used villains, and promoters of “The Children Bomb”……..all over again.
