Reader comment on item: Middle East Provocations and Predictions

Dear Daniel Pipes,

As you know, during the history of Zionism, from 1897-1946, there were substantial Jews who opposed the establishment of a soverign national home for Jews, believing or thinking that it would threaten their citizenship in the states or countries where thet lived (the were fearful of being charged with disloyalty to their country, as in the case of the United State).

Now read this "excellent" narrative of contempory Jews, the "opposition," in which apparently two (2) "loving" Jewish "Zionists" propose "
boycotting Israel:

"We are lifelong Zionists. Here's why we've chosen to boycott Israel"

by Steven Levitsky & Glen Weyl


Notice how this story begins with a great "lie" as Netanyau understands - looking at the picture of the poor Palestinian "boy," or "youth." This is the boy who was caught throwing stones write before the "Knife intefada" began. He was subsequently almost immediately "rescued" by Palestinian womeb, including his very young -famous" sister.

What's important here is that this false narrative continues to be expounded by Jewish professors at prestigious universities throuht the USA - in this case Harvard.

Of course, like "Don Quixote" (at best, I'm trying to be kind) there is the false distortion of what the "Palestinians" are currently up to in their own territories of "Greater Syria, including ISIS in particular.

I know that Israel isn't your primary concerm - but Greater Syria is.

I'd like to contemplate the possibility, in the future of course, of Israel establishing "economic zones" on the other side of Israeli boarders with the Arab countries - like Hong Kong served mainland China. But this would require the abandonement of both Victimhood, Humiliation, and Islamist imperialist ambitions, and delusions of grandeur based on the imagined life under Muhammad's way in the 7th century ("Sharia").

The hardest part - in my view - is for "liberal Jews" to be stripped of their "Concentration Camo Erhardt" mentality. Mel Brookes gave us the possibility of joking about Hitler and the Nazis; unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to equate the "Palestinian Knife Intifada" with the much more "efficient" Cyclone B. The fact that this is merely a miserable Pogrom, instead of a Holocaust, should not distract us from the Genocidal intent of killing Jews as Israelis, however; unfortunately, is it self-hatred that makes "loving" Zionists Levtsky and Weyl blind to this currency of Jew-hatred among [some] Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims, Europeans, and even Jews?
