Enlightened Unto The Nations

Israel’s current problems exist because its founders largely behaved like enlightened Jews, rather than as Communists and Nazis, or even as earlier generations of Americans or Australians had done. The Israelis didn’t expel all the defeated peoples from their lands, but instead, let many stay.

Kevin Myers serves up some reheated Benny Morris today: the problem with Israel’s founders were that they were just too damned decent in how they went about their ethnic cleansing. By the same logic, if a government of the Republic of Ireland forcibly expelled most of the Protestant population from its territory, but didn’t finish the job, allowing some to stay, they would be behaving like enlightened Jews. One can only conclude he has a low opinion of Jews.

Does anyone else’s computer go apeshit and hyperventilate after leaving the Independent website open for any length of time? I’m inclined to think it’s the type of advertisement used, but I guess it could also be the rich racist venom content.
