Can you guess which country is the biggest violator of human rights?
Nope, it’s not North Korea, a country that literally bans the use of sarcasm. Nope, not Iran, a totalitarian state that tries women for adultery when they’re raped. Nope, it’s not even Syria, a country whose government conducts chemical tests on its own people and colludes with Russia, Iran, and ISIS to take down its opposition.
Nope. Actually, according to the United Nations, it’s Israel.
You mean Israel, the only country in the Middle East where a gay pride parade can take place and not get blown up by either 1) terrorists, or 2) the country’s own terrorist-sponsoring government?
Israel, the only country in the Middle East where women are afforded equal protection under the law?
Israel, which has more female military pilots than Saudi Arabia has female civilian drivers?
Israel, the country surrounded by religious fascists who want to wipe it off the face of the planet?
Yep. That Israel.
The Jewish State of Israel has been the target of more United Nations Human Rights Council Resolutions than North Korea and Syria combined.
Sound fishy? Well, yes, it should.
The United Nations has a long history of targeting Israel, and the United States has a long history of protecting it. However, the Obama administration has much digressed from the long-standing tradition of protecting the one human-rights-respecting, democratic country in the Middle East. On Friday, the U.S. abstained from a United Nations referendum per President Obama’s instruction. As a result, Security Council Resolution 2334 passed, condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
The argument is that Israelis are illegally occupying Palestinian territory and that the Israeli settlements are a threat to peace. Ah yes, if only the tiny, lone Jewish state—which is about the size of the state of New Jersey and is surrounded by dozens of Islamic countries that want to destroy it—gave up more of its land, then there would be peace.
The Arab world spent a millennium taking over a quarter of planet earth through forced conversions, brutal wars, and some of the most horrific cases of slavery in world history. But according to the Left, the Jews are still the problem.
There are four Islamic states encompassing Israel’s borders. In the world, there are 50 majority-Muslim states. There is one Jewish state. Despite being the only country in the Middle East with a commitment to individual freedom, Israel is surrounded by religious fascists who want to wipe it off the map.
First, I’d like to point out that the Jewish people have claims to the areas known as “Palestine” about two millennium before any Muslims made claims to it; or rather, before any Muslims existed at all.
The term “Palestinian” applied to everyone in the Palestinian region, including Jews, until the 1960s when Arab Muslims, now calling themselves the Palestinians, suddenly decided they wanted a sovereign state. There is no sovereign Palestinian state, and there never has been in history.
In fact, the idea of a sovereign Palestinian state didn’t even cross anybody’s mind while Palestinians lived under the rule of Jordan. Why? Because it has nothing to do with an oppressed people wanting their sovereignty back and everything to do with anti-Semitic radical Muslims wanting to kill every Jew within a million mile radius.
Don’t believe me? Go to Gaza. Try to find a Jew, living openly and freely, going to synagogue, and shaking hands with the members of Hamas. I dare you. Gaza has been ethnically cleansed of Jews. There are none left. 17% of Israel’s population is Muslim, and both they and their mosques are protected under Israeli law. The same cannot be said for Jews in any Islamic country. Not a single one.
The Islamic world despises Israel, and it’s not because of Israel’s supposed human rights violations or Israel taking back its lawful and historical property. Israel wants peace, as can be seen from its dedication to religious freedom within its own borders. The surrounding Arab and Islamic countries, however, are dedicated to the Jewish State’s destruction.
All you need to do to prove this is look beyond Israel’s surrounding states and look at what any other Islamic country in the world thinks of it. Iran— Persians, a.k.a. the original aryan peoples—threatens to destroy Israel through nuclear warfare. With the increasing Islamic fundamentalism in Turkey, the Jewish population is drastically shrinking. There are virtually no Jewish communities left in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
The motto of Hamas is, “We love death as much as Jews love life.” Since Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005, Hamas has fired 11,000 rockets into Israel. The Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Liberation Organization offer money to the family of any “martyr” who kills a Jew. There were 250 cases between October 2015 and July 2016. The Hezbollah, the Lebanese terrorist group backed by both Syria and Iran, poses a threat to Israel’s northern borders.
It’s not about regaining the sovereignty of a state that never existed and a nationality that someone made up and excluded Jews from 50 years ago. The root problem is a religion and its followers who cannot, in accordance with their doctrine, respect Israel’s very right to exist. The root problem is radical Islam.
To quote Daniel Horowitz, “Wake up and smell the Jihad.”
Radical Muslims spread their religion to every corner of the world through war and violence and colonized the entire Middle East, parts of Asia, Eastern Europe, and half of the African continent. But by all means, tell me more about this Israeli colonization problem.
