Waltz With Bibi

"For me racism is categorically wrong and it is that very realisation that made me into a devoted opponent of Israel and of Zionism. Anyhow, in case you in find an idea or a thought in my writings that may contain a trace of racism please contact me immediately. I will then either clarify my position or amend my text." Gilad Atzmon (Hebrew: גלעד עצמון‎, born June 9, 1963, Israel) is an Israeli-born British jazz musician, and is known as an author and activist who is critical of both Zionism and Judaism.

An old Israeli Joke:

Rightwing Settler: Next summer we are going to expel all the Palis who are still on our land.
Leftwing Israeli: This is fine with us, but just make sure that you use air-conditioned buses.

Netanyahu’s speech today taught us once again that Jewish national political polarity is a myth. In reality, there is no such thing.

Once the Zionist political soup is ready to be served there is no real difference between Benyamin Netanyahu and the so-called 'Israeli left’.

They all say YES to a Palestinian state and NO to the Right of Return, for what they really want is the 'Jews only state'.

A few months ago we wondered where the Israeli 'left' is, as if there has ever been such a thing. Now we happen to wonder where the 'right' is.

In fact, in Israel, all you have is rabid racist rightists. People who sincerely believe in the bizarre Jewish right to celebrate their national aspirations at the expense of others.

They all believe in Jewish isolation and segregation. All they really want is a sealed Jewish ghetto located on historical Palestine. They want to be surrounded by high separation walls. They actually don't mind if there is a Palestinian state behind these walls as long as they don't see it, they don’t smell it and they don't hear it. They do not mind a Palestinian state as long as it doesn't own its sky and they succeed in grabbing all its water.

Interestingly enough, they all manage to forget that in this saga they are not alone, there are Palestinians as well.

They somehow forget that it is actually down to the Palestinians to agree upon the existence of a Jewish state over their land, cities, villages, fields and orchards, around their rivers and near to their shore.

Honestly, I do not think that this is ever going to happen.

More than a while ago the Jewish state crossed into the no return zone, its disintegration is imminent.

Even Barack Obama won’t be able to save it.
