Debanjan Banerjee asks me about hypocrisy

Reader comment on item: Why Palestinians Need an Israel Victory
in response to reader comment: Dear Prashant

Submitted by Prashant, Mar 30, 2018 at 20:13

Dear Dr Pipes, I will not mind educating Debanjan Banerjee because the world needs to modify the thought process of Islamic apologists one mind at a time. In one of my previous notes I suggested that the (so called) Palestinian Israelis can be settled in Saudi Arabia. My suggestion was that if this is properly done, 98% of Israeli population can become Jewish. I picked the percentage 98 because in most of the Islamic theocracies Muslims some how achieve a population ratio of 98 Muslims to 2 non-Muslims. So that ration must be auspicious and sacred for Israeli Jews also. On this, Mr Banerjee told me that it is a hypocrisy on the part of Israel to allow almost any Jew to become an Israeli citizen but not allow the locally born Palestinian an Israeli citizen. Wow. That is an opportunity to educate. I will educate by providing the truth bluntly and politely. So I will do it now. Mr Banerjee are you listening? Here it goes.

You see, Mr Banerjee, I believe in symmetry and golden rule. What is good for one should also be good for the other in similar circumstances.

Consider, Mr Banerjee, some very lovable Islamic theocracies of the world. We can consider Saudi Arabia. If you are an Indian worker working in Saudi Arabia, you do not have any path to Saudi citizenship. You, as an Indian, can go to KSA as a 2-day old child and die there at the age of 85, you will still not be a Saudi citizen. And, yes, if you are married and a child is born to you in KSA, tough luck, even that child cannot be a Saudi citizen. So what is good for Islamic KSA, ought to be good for Jewish Israel. It is perfectly OK by me if Israel does not give citizenship to the naturally born (so called) Palestinian people in Israel. And the matter does not end there. You see, Mr Banerjee, only a fool will long for citizenship of an Islamic theocracy. If it so happens that you are a Arabic Muslim born in KSA or a Pakistani Muslim born in Pakistan and you decide to become a Christian, instantaneously, you become a second class citizen because the state religion of these two countries is Islam and every one else is inferior.

Does this make sense to you Mr Banerjee? Let us just say, whatever it is OK for Muslims to do in an Islamic theocracy is OK for non-Muslims to do outside of Islamic theocracies. It only makes sense and it does not get any easier and better than this. Thanks for providing this opportunity for education. Using this, logically, bluntly and politely we will create a better world one apologist at a time. Thank you, Sir, once again.
