Naftali Bennett wants to see Palestinians
become "water carriers and wood hewers" for Jews

If you think that the UN was wrong in labeling Zionism as a racist
movement, think again.
Of course, Zionist crimes, committed in the
name of Judaism and the Jewish people, have not stopped ever since Zionist
supremacists declared their plans to create an exclusive Jewish state in
Palestine in the late 19th century.
Zionist Jews employed every form
of depravity and immorality to achieve their goal.
But the goal was
evil, just as the means used to reach that goal were decidedly evil. This
was the case 68 years ago, when Israel was created through blood, fire and
terror. It will always be evil.
The passage of 68 years will not
morph a hideous crime into a charitable enterprise. Israel will always be a
crime against humanity, no matter how many people celebrate its achievements
and sing its hymns.
Israel is built upon a foundation of evil and
sinfulness. Such a state will not prosper or have an everlasting longevity.
It will eventually meet the same fate that other evil states and empires
Bennett's Talmudic fascism
the number-2 figure in the new Israeli government was quoted recently as
saying that he would never agree to give non-Jews in Israel equal rights.
When asked what he would tell Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas should
he meet with him, Bennett said rather bluntly "I will order him to make me a
cup of coffee."
Needless to say, "asking the Arabs to make coffee
for Jews" is a slogan often invoked by leaders of religious-Zionist settlers
especially when explaining their attitudes toward the Palestinians.
This manifestly racist mindset is encapsulated by the Biblical terms "water
carriers and wood hewers" which refer to the treatment non-Jews were
entitled to receive in ancient Israel.
Of course, there are many
other Biblical verses which exhort the Children of Israel not to oppress
"strangers living amongst you… because you yourselves were once strangers in
the Land of the Pharaoh".
But Zionism, including religious Zionism,
has very little to do with the sublime ideals of Prophetic Judaism. This is
why, we notice that purportedly religious Zionists select the worst and most
barbaric verses from the Old Testament and seek to apply it to the
Criminal versus genocidal
If classical Zionism
is manifestly criminal, and it undoubtedly is, religious Zionism is
Several years ago, a Jewish settler leader from
the northern West Bank by the name of Daniela Weis gave a speech before a
group of settlers in Hebron's Old Quarter. In her speech, she urged the
settlers to "adopt Joshua's way to deal with the Palestinians."
"Would you choose Rabin's way or Joshua's way in dealing with the
Palestinians," she asked. And the answer came loud and in unison: "We choose
This genocidal fanaticism is not rhetorical or meant
just to scare the Palestinians. It is rather a built-in character of the
religious Zionist ideology as taught by its founder Abraham Kook.
This the same Kook that wrote that "the difference between a Jewish soul and
souls of non-Jews-- all of them in all different levels -- is greater and
deeper than the difference between a human soul and the souls of cattle."
Evil ideology, evil conduct
The settler ideology cannot be
innocuous since it is not confined to the theoretical framework.
1994, a settler from the settlement of Kiryat Arbaa near Hebron descended on
the Ibrahimi Mosque nearby and sprayed Muslim worshipers with bullets, using
his army-issued machinegun.
He murdered 29 worshipers and injured
numerous other people, many with serious disabilities that would stay with
them for the rest of their lives.
Most of the settlers and their
supporters enthusiastically gloated over the massacre as the grave of the
murderer became a pilgrimage site.
A few years later, another
religious Zionist asked a Palestinian cabbie to give him a ride from
Jerusalem to Kfar Saba, north east of Tel Aviv. When the settler got to his
home, he invited the Arab driver to drink a cup of coffee. However, instead
of the cup of coffee, the settler came up with a dagger, stabbing the taxi
driver to death.
Still, when the murderer was interrogated by the
police, he told them that he heard his neighborhood synagogue's rabbis
saying that the life of a non-Jew had no sanctity.
Last year, three
settlers kidnapped an Arab child, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, and took him to an
abandoned place. There they pumped gasoline into the boy's mouth, and then
set the boy on fire, burning him alive.
Who will call the spade a
Now, the same kind of evil-minded people have a great
influence on the upcoming Israeli government. For example, Ayelet Shaked
from the far-right HaBayit HaYehudi (Jewish Home) party was given the
portfolio of justice minister as part of a deal that saw PM Netanyahu gather
enough support to form a coalition and control the Israeli parliament, the
Last year, Shaked, a nice-looking young woman, attracted
global attention and criticism when she posted a Facebook status denouncing
Palestinians, during Israel’s 50-day military offensive in Gaza.
"The Palestinian people [have] declared war on us, and we must respond with
war ... Not an operation, not a slow-moving one, not low-intensity, not
controlled escalation, no destruction of terror infrastructure, no targeted
"Enough with the oblique references. This is a war. Words
have meanings. This is a war. It is not a war against terror, and not a war
against extremists, and not even a war against the Palestinian Authority.
These too are forms of avoiding reality. This is a war between two peoples.
Who is the enemy? The Palestinian people."
Now, do the governments
and peoples of the world have the courage to call the spade a spade,
especially when it comes to Zionist criminality?
It is not enough to
celebrate the annual anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany. It is also
imperative to fight Nazi ideals and Nazi ideas everywhere. Including in
Unfortunately this is not being done with regard to Israel
as the capitals of Europe and North America will soon receive Shaked and her
equally racist colleagues with all the required trappings.
