Jerusalem’s Holocaust Day

Northern Atlantic states and allies work hard to convince their quasi-slave citizens, their pseudo-colonies, and the rest of the world, that the states modeled after the Westphalia 1648 agreement are the best in the world. The same holds for the diabolical modification introduced by Walsingham into the British Empire, which later was exported to much of the world, including to the post-WWII US. Of course – according to their leaders’ own testimony - the democracy of these states is unmatched by any other form of regime. They are the salt of the world; anybody different is just barbarian chili. The fact these countries have brought nothing but war, deception and death for centuries is not to be mentioned; the worst assassins in the history of the world are too sensitive and most media silently complies. Israel – a recent and illegitimate addition to the Hypocrisy Club, is bringing the club’s rhetoric to unmatched levels of self-deception. Today – June 1, 2011 – Benjamin Netanyahu managed to surpass himself while commenting on Jerusalem’s Day.
This enlightened leader spoke at Mercaz Harav Yeshiva near Jerusalem and used there an Hebrew play on words of a 2000-year-old Jewish prayer (“Next Year in Jerusalem”) saying "next year in a more built up Jerusalem." He openly ignored the moratorium required for renewing the talks with the Palestinians, effectively announcing war. "We are building and we will build still more, a real city is being build here," he added so that there would be no misinterpretations. Then – thrice is better than twice – he said “Jerusalem must remain the united capital of Israel,” implying in his Hebrew also the city’s eastern parts.
Then this highly enlightened leader said that the 1967 Six-Day War gave the city the momentum to develop for Jewish and Arab citizens alike. This is an open lie. The Palestinian neighborhoods of occupied Jerusalem have a master plan that permit a building-density much lower - 25 percent to 75 percent - than in the Jewish neighborhoods, where it is between 75 percent and 125 percent. Since 1967, Palestinians received building permits for less than 15000 residences, a small fraction of the permits given to Jews. One year ago, Yakir Segev, a party colleague of Mayor Nir Barkat and the holder of the municipality's East Jerusalem portfolio said in a newspaper interview: "We will not allow residents of the eastern part of the city to build as much as they need ... I don't think the most important task is to resolve the housing shortage in East Jerusalem." Netanyahu, you must understand that discrimination is not unity, discrimination is not democracy; discrimination means human rights violations and hatred. Netanyahu, you are a bigot.
On the same occasion, Reuven Rivlin - the Knesset’s Speaker – was a bit more sincere. "We promised a united Jerusalem but we failed to deliver, we built the City of David, established Ma'ale Hazeytim, salvaged the Hurva Synagogue from ruin (another play on words “hurva” means “ruin”) - but what have we done for Ras al-Amud? What have we done for the children living in East Jerusalem who can't find a school that will have them?" He then described the "barely functioning" postal services in East Jerusalem. Let me be clearer than this enlightened leader. Postal services are a major sign of sovereignty, Israel – a href="http://www.roitov.com/index.htm#sovereignty" target="blank">a non-sovereign entity by any account – openly admits failure here. Thank you, Rivlin, I take this as your clumsy and insufficient attempt of atonement for your shocking lies on the Holy See.
Jerusalem is a divided city. The 1947 United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine defined the Jerusalem-Bethlehem area as under special international protection, administered by the United Nations. The proposed plan was accepted by the leaders of the Jewish community in Palestine, through the Jewish Agency; as such, Israel cannot place any claims on any parts of Jerusalem. Let me emphasize, David ben Gurion was in this decision taking group; though he opposed the decision, he was a minority. Israel’s direct predecessor gave up to any sovereignty there. The 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine – called in Israel the Independence War – ended with Israel controlling the western part of the city. The 1967 Six-Day War ended with Israel taking control on the eastern parts of the city.
Unmatched violence and terror cannot be base to claims on ownership, even if it comes from the Jews. Israel claims on Jerusalem – East and West – must be rejected by peace loving people all over the world. The parallel Quds-Day (“Quds” means “Holy” in Arabic – the word is similar to the Hebrew matching root – and is used for denominating the city) is another reminder of this. Israel must stop its violence on all fronts. There are no negotiations on this. It’s an absolute demand.
