United Nations member States need to examine their own consciences and policies following Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu castigating them for promoting a Jew-free Palestinian Arab State in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem…writes David Singer.In a video presentation last week – Netanyahu declared:

“Israel’s diversity shows its openness and readiness for peace.

“Yet the Palestinian leadership actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: No Jews.

“There’s a phrase for that: It’s called ethnic cleansing.

“And this demand is outrageous. It’s even more outrageous that the world doesn’t find this outrageous.

“Some otherwise enlightened countries even promote this outrage.”

The Oxford Dictionary defines “enlightened” to mean “having or showing a rational, modern, and well-informed outlook

Enlightened United Nations member States lost their moral and humanitarian compasses when supporting United Nations Resolution A/67/L.28 passed on 29 November 2012 (“the Resolution”) which reaffirmed:

“the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and to independence in their State of Palestine on the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967”

Among the 138 countries voting for the Resolution were enlightened States such as:

Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Russian Federation, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Uruguay and Venezuela

Canada, the Czech Republic, Israel, and the United States voted against the Resolution whilst 41 others – including Australia – abstained.

800000 Jews currently live in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem under rights vested in them by:

  • Article 6 of the 1922 Mandate for Palestine,
  • Article 80 of the 1945 United Nations Charter,
  • Israel’s 1967 annexation of East Jerusalem
  • The 1993 Oslo Accords.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas declared in 2010:

“We have frankly said, and always will say: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we won’t agree to the presence of one Israeli in it,”

Like Hitler – Abbas made no secret of his racist plan to create a Jew-free State.

Member States of the United Nations remained silent.  In voting for the Resolution they chose to march to the same tune.

Abbas repeated his evil message in 2013:

“But when a Palestinian state is established, it would have no Israeli presence in it.”

Enlightened States still said nothing.

They had said nothing after every single Jew had been ethnically cleansed from Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem following Jordan’s conquest of these areas between 1948 and 1967 when the following events happened:

“After the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem was captured, the destruction, desecration and systematic looting of Jewish sites began and continued. 57 ancient synagogues (the oldest dated to the 13th century), libraries and centers of religious study were ransacked and 12 were totally and deliberately destroyed. Those that remained standing were defaced, used for housing of both people and animals. The city’s foremost Jewish shrine, the Western Wall, became a slum. Appeals were made to the United Nations and in the international community to declare the Old City to be an ‘open city’ and stop this destruction, but there was no response.”

The independent Jew-free Palestinian State promoted by the United Nations in 2012 could have been created between 1948 and 1967 with the stroke of an Arab League pen when not one Jew lived in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem.  That 19 year window of opportunity will not return.

Netanyahu’s rebuke was certainly justified.

Enlightened – and unenlightened – States need to affirm their total opposition to any settlement of the Jewish-Arab conflict involving the ethnic cleansing of any Jews from Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem.

    Our problem is that we are perceived to be, still and even today, a small people possessing very little real power.
    That is why even a little upstart like the New Zealand foreign minister has the effrontery to attack us.
    (Of course, when it suits the antisemites’ agenda they disingenuously talk about our mighty control of all facets of their societies and our lust for world domination.)

  2. Leon Poddebsky says:

    Arabs have previously ethnically cleansed Jews out of Judea: in 1929 from Migdal Eder, and in 1948 from the old part of Jerusalem, and from Kfar Etzyion, Massu’ot Yitzchak, Ein Tzurim and Revadim.
    Those Jews had lived there legally under the Mandate.
    Did any one in “the enlightened”states object?

    Well said indeed
