Recognition of 'Israel'?

"Let the truth be declared. The use of the Name 'ISRAEL' by that state is a complete falsification.
The people of Israel have nothing to do with the state. Zionism and its state have no share and no part
in the true ISRAEL ..we demand that they cease to call themselves 'Israel'"

Declarations II - for, and..

Q: Is nationalist savagery in Palestine and Lebanon best opposed by non-recognition of the State of 'Israel'? A: Probably, in starting for peace..

With the late October 2006 coalition government inclusion of the right-orthodox, anti-Arab Yisrael Beytenu party - as PM Yehud "Olmert has vowed to draw Israel's final borders with the Palestinians by 2010 via quitting isolated settlements in the West Bank and enlarging bigger ones no matter if there are bilateral talks with the Palestinian side" - unilateralism grows opposition [Xinhua + Israeli PM Lets Hard-Liner in Government 23Oct06].

"Azmi Bishara, an Israeli Arab member of the parliament, said: 'Israel can't pride itself for being the sole democracy in the Middle East and take in someone so radical [as Mr Lieberman]. World governments should boycott the Israeli government over Lieberman as well as its policies against the Palestinians'" [Talks on new Israeli government 25Oct06].

But the Knesset okays Lieberman appointment as "vice premier, minister for strategic affairs.. All the cabinet ministers approved Lieberman's addition apart from Paz-Pines. MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) said that 'Israel's No. 1 fascist' had been upgraded to deputy prime minister and minister. He said that Lieberman's appointment was a message to the entire Arab world that 'this government advocates rejectionism and the absence of a political process'", though PM has final word on Iran - "Lieberman's new role is to coordinate security, intelligence and diplomatic initiatives and to report on the issue to Olmert.. as he deals with the growing nuclear threat from Iran.. would also supervise the Nativ liaison office, which helps to facilitate the immigration of Jews from the former Soviet Union." [ + Kadima, Yisrael Beiteinu formally sign coalition deal 23Oct06]

So Paz-Pines resigns as cabinet minister "to.. run for the [Labor] party chairmanship" and Arab MKs urge world to pressure Israel: "Calling Israel Beitenu the 'embodiment of all that is racist and fascist,' a spokesman for the Balad Party said that the Arab MKs were turning to the rest of the world to help them protest the new coalition. 'The international community should pressure the Israeli government, perhaps with a boycott, in order to stop this dangerous party,' said MK Ahmed Tibi, Chairman of the Balad Party. The 11 MKs from the Balad, Rahat-Ta'al, and Hadash Parties said that they would join forces to write to parliaments throughout the world.. Lieberman has clashed with the Knesset's Arab Parties since the opening weeks of the 17th Knesset, when he likened Arab MKs who visited Syria to Nazi collaborators. During the election, Lieberman also called for transferring parts of Israel's 1.5 million Arabs a future Palestinian State.. 'This is a black day for Israeli democracy and a mark of Cain for Olmert's government, which legitimizes racism and fascism," said MK Taleb a-Sanaa (Rahat-Ta'al). 'Governments across the world should boycott the Israeli government over Lieberman as well as its policies against the Palestinians'" [ 30-31Oct06].

While inside parliament, Yisrael Beitenu MK retracts bill on expelling 'anti-Israel' MKs - "Esterina Tartman.. backed down from her intention to submit a bill that would grant the Knesset power to revoke the membership of a legislator deemed to be anti-Israeli. Under the bill, a majority of 80 lawmakers could expel MKs who oppose the existence of the State of Israel as a democracy, are found responsible for racist incitement, or support armed resistance against Israel.. During the stormy debate, MK Dov Khenin (Hadash) said 'a similar bill was passed in the 1930s by the Reichstag in Nazi Germany, where 95 Communist parliamentarians were expelled.. not directed against Arab MKs, but against anyone who goes against the state.. she would consider when would be the appropriate timing for submitting her bill before the Knesset'" [ 30Oct06].

Tartman's bill was "delayed.. due to the intervention of Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik.. 'It is very unclear why it was delayed, but it seems clear that Itzik didn't want the bill making headlines on the same day as the new coalition,' said a Balad Spokesman. 'She knew that the bill represented the racist and fascist nature of the new government, but by delaying it she has not hidden the truth... The government has added a party that hopes to eliminate Arabs from the Knesset.' A spokesman for Itzik said that she had delayed the issue for scheduling reasons alone, and denied that her intervention had been politically motivated.. Tartman's bill is believed to be aimed at Arab MKs who give critical speeches on Israel.. 'I had a majority to pass this bill in the committee this morning, but I agreed to delay only because I respect Itzik," said Tartman. "I believe that anti-Zionist lawmakers have been allowed to go too far, and the time has come for us to stand against this type of behavior'" ['Racist' bill delayed in Knesset 31Oct06].

Eventually, "Relations between Jewish and Arab Knesset members reached an all-time low Tuesday when an Arab MK was ejected from a committee meeting after hurling a profanity at a fellow MK.. [- the] Knesset Law and Constitution Committee as MKs discussed a bill proposed by MK Zevulun Orlev (NU-NRP) to nullify the Israeli citizenship of any MK who rejects Israel's right to exist as a democratic country or who encourages terrorism.. 'These [Arab MKs] have gotten out of control'.. the bill was rejected by an 11-5 majority." [Bishara flings obscenities at Erdan 5Dec06].

This means war "various Israeli-Arab organizations for a fundamental change in the relationship between the Jewish majority and the Arab minority.. This week, the leaders of the Arab minority in Israel declared war in their own way on the Jewish national state in the Land of Israel.. outrageous calls for granting veto power to the Arab minority on decisions of national import, and for separate representation at international institutions, and more in that vein. There are also calls for changing the flag and the national anthem, for a return to abandoned villages and equality in immigration rights to Israel.. something that would alter Israel's demography, create hundreds of new friction points and foster ongoing internal intra-ethnic conflict even after the external conflict is resolved. Changing the flag and the national anthem, to make them express the national uniqueness of the Arab minority, would abolish - on the symbolic level - Israel as the Jewish national state; the next stage would have to be changing the name of the state.. to ensure that the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians does not abate even after peace agreements are signed and an independent Palestinian state arises alongside the State of Israel.. the leaders of the Arabs in Israel are trying to show that their loyalty is not given to the State of Israel in its present incarnation, but only to a binational Jewish-Arab state on the territory of Israel, or to a Palestinian state on all the territory of the Land of Israel" 8Dec06

The reason that Jews are free is simple: There is a Jewish homeland that has taken in oppressed Jews, second-class Jews, refugee Jews. It bothers me when people ask the question: Is Israel still necessary? They can only ask that question because Israel is a victim of its own success.

On The Jewish Problem "..there can be no doubt that the material conditions for the existence of Jewry as an independent nation could be brought about only by the proletarian revolution. There is no such a thing on our planet as the idea that one has more claim to land than another. The establishment of a territorial base for Jewry in Palestine or any other country is conceivable only with the migrations of large human masses. Only a triumphant Socialism can take upon itself such tasks. It can be foreseen that it may take place either on the basis of a mutual understanding, or with the aid of a kind of international proletarian tribunal which should take up this question and solve it. The blind-alley in which German Jewry finds itself as well as the blind-alley in which Zionism finds itself is inseparably bound up with the blind-alley of world capitalism, as a whole.

Recognition as a Jewish State "One of the least understood aspects of this conflict revolves around Israel's major bone of contention - recognition as a Jewish State. Palestinians cannot accept this for three reasons. The first is because they were not the only party to reject partition.. Secondly, Israel has never recognized Palestine..

No religion & an end to war: how thinkers see the future Alok Jha science correspondent The Guardian Jan07

"I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world." -- Richard Dawkins

In too many partisan fora, opposition to 'Israel' is propagandistically reinterpreted as a wish for Israel's destruction. This is largely slanted misinterpretation, sowing fear as means for popular manipulation. Peace begins by dispelling such fear. It is possible, nay, principled, to oppose 'Israel' without wish of any destruction - rather, to end the interminable, internecine destruction.

Q: Is nationalist conflict apparently 'around all Islam' best opposed by derecognition of the State of 'Israel'? A: Probably, in starting for peace..

Is not the most important message of today to expose creationist ideology, and its private property system, as defunct - immorally culture-specific and antisocial from start to finish? Let us proceed:

Certainly the Torah reads as land entitlement mythologised, and documents early conquest genocides in Canaan (Palestine). Should we hold this against Judaism, for having reported honestly? (in the Bible; whereas the honesty of Israel's current policies and reporting are often questioned.) - Not usefully, although yes: to carefully abstract the destructive subjectivity of creedism from its as yet unconscious, and therefore innocent, adherents - the truth- and justice-seeking Jewish peoples united by faith as a 'nation'.

Was massacre/genocide not common practise in Biblical times - where population and religious absorption, and enslavement, were - or is it the result of ideological innovation: for liberation against slavery and for family pastoralism? The monotheistic 'national' popular coalition idea of 'Israel' was perhaps not the first to conquer land and other assets by genocide; it sadly and certainly was not the last.

'Israel' 'owns' Palestine now, by force majeure, with which arguing seems fruitless. However, most Palestinians reject Hebrew land title and enforcement means explicitly; so who are we to contradict them?

While being a strong community sector in Palestine, on and off, for around four millenia, direct Jewish domination of the territory has stood approximately 800 of those years, and for 58 currently (i.e. for just 20% of the time). An historic anomaly, therefore, 'Israel' is still a new small state, whose very existence has been forged through military and religious argument - now minority dictate. The Torah set out pure ideology of conquest, that is unjust. National debate is ongoing around 'Israel', like nowhere else on Earth. With an active policy that is attracting an all-time migration high, up against the fact that world Judaic religious adherence is declining by 100 persons per day, Israel's long-term viability is no more guaranteed than it ever was. It will take much more than 3,300-year-old propaganda, backed by sheer force of arms, to secure the Israelites in perpetuity.

The route to peaceful Semite coexistence is yet to be found - except for creation of a Socialist International. Material disparity has created a highly oppressed colonised underdog in the Palestians, who require, at least, the same level of international support enjoyed by 'Israel'. Justice therefore questions 'Israel' as a legitimately constituted state entity. Ideologically and at base, this is the same question posed for all colonial and post-colonial states. Development of WW1 Jewish Legion forces "to participate in the British military effort to conquer Palestine from the Ottoman Empire" set foundations for alliances and events of WW2 that resonate unfortunately. [Wikipedia]

The moral jury is therefore out on 'Recognition of the State of Israel', and thus on the global Judaeo-Christian state system in toto. History must soon be remade - over energy supply and resource conservation for sustainable production - and more democratically than ever before seen.

'Salam-Israel' (Peace-Upright_with_God) is what we most need to anticipate for the United State of Palestine. This is a highly achieveable historic goal. It may simply require the logical (Hellenic) inversion of Hamas's thereotical position: shifting non-recognition of 'Israel' from de jure objective to an abstracted one deconstructing the conceptual framework so far insistent on a self-defined 'Israel'; because no such absolute right exists - justly or otherwise.

Thesis: The industrial capitalist commodification of freed-slave religious spirit - built upon feudal foundations the same, and known to the world as the country-state, expropriating the culture, of 'Israel' - must be transcended, in every sense (or opposed, discredited, reversed and re-formed), for human liberation to eventuate in a complete and lasting way.

Opposition to anti-semitism, and to all forms of racialism, is essential to universal justice. For this reason we lift its mask off dispossession of Arab communities - no less than we do from the historical oppression of Jews. Both Arab and Jew are Semites and family, so our goal - in peace - can only be the fair settlement of their age-old property dispute. Which means finding the way to set the ledger back to zero for both parties, and working forward in harmony from there.

Achieving complete peace is a relatively simple task - rational application, comprehensively for the first time. That is, 'God' and 'Israel' etc are exposed as historic hoax impeding evolution - whereas they did once help progress it.

The end-time - 'the Kingdom of Heaven' - is finally upon us. It grows as the cause and the practise of democratic harmony - the denationalisation of the 'Israel/Palestine' conflict and all others - through pooled assets and secularised, egalitarian well-being. The United Peoples of the World is eliminating division by country, and what caused this - through renewal of light, love, and hope. With vegetarian protein and iron sources, no drugs :-)

Be One: inherit the Earth. Know 'God': by doctrine of Mammon. Know god all: without as within, belonging. Nil begat all: from the alpha to the omega.

One could say that 'the sooner a job description for messiah is notified, the sooner Middle East and world peace will start taking shape'. [ref.2 The Jewish Messiah, Jews for Judaism FAQ]. But that would be to buy into a feudal illusion of supernatural deliverance - unhelpful, at best. There can be no 'chosen people' at the peace table of equals. It is up to 'Israel' to move, now, for a future we all can share. Spiritual practise yes, religious difference no.

Religion is the political ideology of vestigial feudalism - neither has any progressive role to play. Wo/man has graduated to creator, of ecological destiny, of our own culminating and collective history. Unity of purpose.

Good 'god' is within us all, as much as without. Connect, unmediated.
-- Lao Tse, and Jesus Christ - messiah or not.
