"The Protocols are alive and well"

Reader comment on item: The Paterson 'Protocols'

Submitted by Richard D F Arnold (United States), Nov 5, 2002 at 16:53

Let's see: Israel and the neoconservatives have a very keen little scheme to get the US to attack Iraq, significantly for Israel's benefit, but they don't want to say so. How literally must you take the "Protocols" to know they are alive and well and in full force and effect?!

Israel must recognize that only if it accepts to be part of a secular federal democracy for all of Palestine will it ensure its existence. Messianic Zionism is just as dangerous and objectionable as fundamentalist Islam. If Israel were to accept Jerusalem as the capital of this federation, its own state would be one of the three or four (W. Bank/Judea, Gaza and perhaps the Negev). It would continue as it does, but the borders would become less significant and the W. Bank settlements could remain, as anyone could live in any part of the confederation. This will not likely happen if a separate Palestinian state is born.

The "United States of Palestine" would break down the "ours vs. theirs" and bring the people together which they must do in order to survive over the long term. If it is not Saddam's bomb, it will be Iran's or someone else's...

Integeration will prevent the Muslim focus on an "outsider" if it is attached to a confederation. This system works very well here in America and it would also do likewise in Palestine, if only the Messianics could be suppressed...
