Nazi Europe's Ethnic Cleansing of Jews

Reader comment on item: Why Israelis Shy from Victory

Submitted by Robert (United States), Sep 11, 2018 at 19:14

Before 1991, the two-term expression didn't yet exist,according to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary (online). it was apparently introduced in the context of the Civil War in Yugoslavia, particularly what happened with Bosnia.

Nevertheless, the Philistines, together with their Left-Wing Israeli Jews, have introduced the term to describe what allegedly happened to them as a consequence of Zionism, especially around 1948.

However, Zionism emerged in response to the Dreyfus Affair (1884-1906). The Third Republic of the French Revolution demonstrated to astute Jews that they could not live a normal life as equal citizens free of Antisemitism. But most of the world's Jews did not accept the solution of find a place on Earth (not Heaven) where they could live as Jews. It was the British Empire in 1917 followed with the League of Nations which created by about 1921, Mandatory Palestine as the Political Home of the Jewish People.

But during Nazi phase in Europe, ending in 1945, Europe and Russia rid itself of 6,000,000 Jews - not through Immigration to Palestine - but through the "Ethnic Cleansing" tool of Extermination, particularly with the use of Gas Chambers and Crematoria.

Three years later, in 1948, the UN recognized Palestine as Israel - after the British abandoned the Mandate of Palestine. While resident Palestinian continued their Civil War, opposing any Jewish State, Five Arab Countries commenced a War against Israel, but were stopped - and an Armistice ensued.

But here (below) is one of the best Anti-Israel, and Pro-Philistine, argument. Notice the nature of the Argument used as well as the Rhetorical Devices and Factual Omissions. Israel's way to Victory, I maintain, is by Defeating this Argument in the different ways available and true to the Traditions of the Jews.
