Jews were kicked around by (in no particular order) Egyptians, Assyrians, Hittites, Persians, Greeks and finally, by Romans who expelled them from their homeland. After that, they have been expelled from some 109 different places. (And counting.) After six million of so were killed by Nazis, the survivors were offered their old homeland back, as it was an available chunk of the reduction of the Turkish Empire. Having changed little over the ages, the surviving Jews took it on.
Hoping to finish what the Nazis had started, the surrounding Arabs piled on the new Jewish homeland from every direction at once but the damn Jews refused to cave under the onslaught as every script but their own had provided. And they’re still there. Worse than that, they are a democracy with a high living standard sitting among poverty stricken tin pot dictatorships that don’t appreciate the contrast. And of course, among Moslems who don’t appreciate Jews, democracy or in fact, anything other than Moslems they have approved, usually a short list.
An Israeli today lives in surreality. Missile and mortar shells arrive unannounced, Arab youths in East Jerusalem throw rocks and it’s not safe to be too close to some of the borders. And the Jews thrive as the surrounding Arabs, gnashing their teeth, do not.
Arabs kidnapped and killed 3 Israeli teens. As the bodies were driven to Jerusalem, Arabs stoned the ambulances. Israel smart bombed rocket launch sites. An Arab boy was then kidnapped and killed. The Arabs rioted. A surreal place to live.
The plain and unmentionable reality is that almost nobody seems to likes Jews. plus they lack oceans of oil. Some Americans and a few Europeans are at least publicly, ashamed of those attitudes but that is melting in the currents of time. Those who actually knew Nazi and Russian Jewish victims have now mostly gone after their friends; faceless strangers compel less sympathy.
The “Palestinian” Arabs are pawns cynically held in place by the refusal of surrounding Arabs to allow them in. They are the major weapon against the Jews, who are forbidden to act definitively against them by America and Europe, their “friends.” Those Arabs are relentlessly propagandized from childhood to hate Jews and to hope to kill as many as may be. It’s all set up, all fixed … But the damn Jews still won’t do as they are supposed to do. Instead, they thrive. You’d think that they would have learned by now … But they know that they have been chosen and nothing can prevail against that.
