Let Us Talk About Jewishness:
Motivates Israeli Pilots to Drop Bombs on Palestinian Civilians
By Gilad Atzmon
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, April 18, 2011
One of the main differences between my work and and the writings of other
humanists within the peace movement is that I am willing to move beyond the
political discussion -- I dig into the ideological and philosophical roots
of the Jewish state, Jewish politics and Jewish identity politics. I
look into the meaning of 'Jewishness.'
In my work I clearly identify
a continuum between Israel and 'Jewish ideology' ('Jewishness'). And since
Israel defines itself as the Jewish State, then surely --we must be brave
enough to question what Jewishness stands for.
And clearly, Israelis
are proud about their Jewishness -- They are far from being shy about it
In the following video Judeo-Centric Israeli Law Professor
Ruth Gavison spreads some Jewish Tribal ideas at AIPAC conference.
If you fail
to understand what motivates the Israeli pilots to drop bombs on
civilians from aeroplanes decorated with Jewish symbols, law professor
Gavison provides the answer;
“Israel will do whatever it takes to
remain a Jewish state for as long as it takes.”
If you ask yourself,
how is it that 94% of Israeli Jews supported the IDF genocidal
measures at the time of Operation Cast Lead, then Gavison may have some
insights to offer.
“The Jewishness of Israel is the meaning of which
the state of Israel is enabling Jews for the first time in many years, to
take control of all aspects of their lives”
They certainly do:
Israeli brutality is beyond comparison.
Gavison concludes, “Israel is
the place where Jewish and Hebrew culture is the majority culture; this is
the meaning of the Jewishness of Israel”
We have to agree with the
Law Professor -- Hebrew culture is, indeed, a majority culture in
Israel -- because the indigenous people of the land are locked
behind walls in open air prisons.
If Israel is the meaning of
Jewishness, and vice versa, Jews do have a serious ethical problem to deal
