The Noose Around Israel’s Neck

by DANIEL  GREENFIELD

Israel is being hanged on a public gallows erected on the grounds of the  United Nations with yards of rope gleefully supplied by the Muslim world. But  the hangmen are mostly Westerners who still think that the Muslim lynch mob at  their doorstep can be pacified with the death of a single victim.

There are three things you can do when you are about to be hanged. You can  walk proudly, recite a glorious line or two to embed your martyrdom in  historical memory, and then allow yourself to be hanged. Jews have an extensive  body of experience with that brand of martyrdom.

Alternatively you can  plead your case all the way to the gallows, arguing that a mistake has been  made, that your case has been improperly reviewed, begging for someone to listen  and do something. This way also ends in a hanging. But it’s the hanging of a  slave without even a shred of dignity attached to it. A man that dies pleading  with his murderers, and puts his fate in the honesty of the liars and hypocrites  whose own crimes makes the worst of his look like virtues, is a craven fool.
Because there is really only one thing you can do when the noose is being  placed around your neck. Resist. A noose works by tightening around your neck  and cutting off your air or breaking your neck. If you resist the tightening of  the noose, you may actually survive. On the other hand if you follow through all  the procedures, if you allow your hands to be tied behind your back, and the  noose to be fastened around your neck while trusting in the system to do right  by you– your death is inevitable.

For seventeen years Israel has been  walking toward the gallows. Its leaders have led it there by the nose ring of  international assurances. Its people have been led there by refusing to see what  is waiting ahead for them, even while the blood was being cleaned off the  streets. Every attempt to reach a peaceful solution, every concession and show  of good faith, has only tightened the bonds around its hands and the noose  around its neck.

That is because every concession Israel has made, has  further restricted not only its ability to defend itself, but even its ability  to do basic things such as build residential housing in the capital of its own  nation. Every gesture and agreement Israel has signed has bound it to ever more  restrictive terms. And none of them have brought any peace. All they have ever  done is set the bar higher for the next round of concessions demanded by the  enemy and its aiders and abettors in the next phase of negotiations.

This is not a peace process, and it has never been one. It is a public lynching.  It is the lynching of a country whose only real crime is that its existence  offends the religious fanaticism and prejudices of a billion Muslims, who  control much of the world’s oil, and whose followers are willing to riot and  kill in the streets of nearly every major city in the world at the slightest  offense.
