Israel’s Racism: The Nation-State Law
A Music Video on Israel’s Racism : its Nation-State Law.
David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s George Washington, could not have known in 1948 that in 2018 Benjamin Netanyahu would steer a 180-degree turn away from Ben-Gurion’s promise that “The state of Israel will promote the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; will be based on precepts of liberty, justice and peace … will uphold the full social and political equality of all its citizens without distinction of race, creed or sex.”
Because the baiter was not in cahoots with the switcher, Israel’s Nation State Law was not a standard-issue bait-and-switch. Nevertheless, Ben-Gurion’s ‘bait’ was a radical ‘switch’ from what amounts to Israel’s de facto constitution – The Torah. The word ‘Torah’ means ‘law’ and The Torah is The Law – the most basic of Israel’s Basic Laws. This de facto reality explains why Israel, so replete with educated and articulate citizens, has not managed to formulate a constitution in 70+ years – because any constitution that would be internationally acceptable would contradict The Torah. As such, Israel is not a constitutional democracy, and Netanyahu’s Nation State Law gives official sanction to Israel’s status as a theocratic democracy – The Jewish State of Israel, like The Islamic Republic of Iran.
Zionism is the central theme of The Torah and the original instructions for implementing Zionism are commanded most succinctly by the God of The Bible in Deuteronomy 20:10-17:
When you approach a city to wage war against it, offer it terms of peace. If it accepts your terms and submits to you, all the people found in it will become your slaves. If it does not accept terms of peace but makes war with you, then you are to lay siege to it. The Lord your God will deliver it over to you and you must kill every single male by the sword. However, the women, little children, cattle, and anything else in the city — all its plunder — you may take for yourselves as spoil. You may take from your enemies the plunder that the Lord your God has given you. This is how you are to deal with all those cities located far from you, those that do not belong to these nearby nations.
As for the cities of these peoples that the Lord your God is going to give you as an inheritance, you must not allow a single living thing to survive. Instead you must utterly annihilate them — the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites [people of Jerusalem] — just as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that they cannot teach you all the abhorrent ways they worship their gods, causing you to sin against the Lord your God.
Yes, Zionism includes racism, but racism is a lesser charge than genocide. As such, asserting that “Zionism is racism” understates the depravity that lies at the foundation of Zionism.
