Why Abbas Cannot Recognize Israel as a Jewish State

Pages: 1 2

This is an important issue because it reveals that the prime motivation for the conflict is not borders or water sources or refugees: it is the Arab refusal to accommodate the existence of a Jewish state.  Such a motivation, arising from what in essence is Islamic institutionalized religious apartheid, is inconsistent with the sensibilities of 21st century western culture, and would thus have difficulty finding support among western nations. So Abbas and others lie about it.  They pretend that a Jewish state is likely to discriminate against its non-Jewish inhabitants — a rather risible claim since non-Jewish minorities in Israel are far better off than any minorities, Muslim or non-Muslim, in Arab lands. Or they argue that a religious definition of a state is inherently racist  — beyond risible since they have no such complaint against the Islamic republic of Iran or the self-identified Muslim states of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, or Saudi Arabia.

To further obfuscate the real motivation for their animus toward Israel, Arab leaders and propaganda sources have focused the world’s attention on a variety of issues such as borders, water rights, refugee repatriation, and the status of Jerusalem: all of which could be resolved in peaceful negotiations, if the Arab side were willing to end the conflict peacefully.  All too many of our mainstream media outlets and our political leaders have been duped by this obfuscation.  And all attempts at resolution have failed because the focus has been on Israel’s concessions to these propagandistic demands, while ignoring the real cause of the conflict: Arab leaders’ unwillingness to accept Jewish sovereignty over what they still consider Muslim land.

But a Palestinian Authority spokesperson let the proverbial cat out of the bag, perhaps inadvertently, earlier this year. Among the “Palestinian papers” released to the world via wikileaks, there is one called “Talking Points on Recogntion [sic] of Jewish State.”   In this paper the Palestinian Authority spokesperson details the reasons for not accepting Israel as a Jewish state. Among them:  “Recognizing the Jewish state implies recognition of a Jewish people and recognition of its right to self-determination….Those who assert this right also assert that the territory historically associated with this right of self-determination (i.e., the self-determination unit) is all of Historic Palestine. Therefore, recognition of the Jewish people and their right of self-determination may lend credence to the Jewish people’s claim to all of Historic Palestine.”

In other words, if Abbas were to acknowledge that Israel is a Jewish state, then he would have acknowledged that Jews have the right to political self-determination and national self-realization, just what he claims for the Palestinians, and just what the Qur’anic concept of dhimmitude denies to Jews.  Arab leaders don’t want to do that because that would strengthen the Israeli argument for Israel’s just demand of those same rights. And such an admission would acknowledge that Jews can have sovereignty over Muslims (Arab Muslim citizens of Israel) and over what Muslims call Muslim land.  So Abbas must continue to deny the obvious, no matter how ridiculous it sounds, because to not do so will weaken his own arguments. And to admit that the motivation for the animus that so much of the Muslim world bears toward Israel originates in the Islamic religious concepts of dhimmi and of the inadmissibility of non-Muslim sovereignty on Muslim land would be to reveal the real core issue in the conflict: the Muslim religious apartheid ideology of the supremacy of Islam.

Thus, Netanyahu is right to demand recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Since the real motivator for Arab animus against Israel is the Jewish character of the state, there can be no end to the conflict until Arab leaders abandon these Islamic religious concepts.  This is not likely to happen any time soon.

    Brilliant analysis!

    • Al Blue

      Total BS, Israel can't be a Jewish State when 25% of its people are not Jewish. Imagine a Christian or Gentile State here because only 1.58% of us are Jewish.
      This is by far the most racist forum on the Internet excepting only Kook Spencer's
      and insane Pam Geller's.

      • mlcblog

        It is obvious you know nothing about the establishment of the Jews in the Holy Land by God himself through a covenant.

      • A. Mazor

        What a racist you are!
        What about all the Islamic states that have non-Muslims living within their borders?
        As it said in this brilliant article, no one seems to have a problem with Islamic states, even though those Islamic states horrifically oppress non-Muslims!

      • welldoneson

        Al, Israel is a Jewish state. it is THE Jewish state.
        Period. There is no requirement that 100% of the people be Jewish.
        Unlike Moslem countries where non-Moslems are persecuted, harassed,
        and murdered regularly. Islam is a pile of silage telling us the smell is someone
        else's fault.

  • mikidiki

    The only fault with the article is that it allocates too great a degree of rational thought to islamist beliefs which normal people find abhorrent.

  • StephenD

    I would LOVE to hear our President explain away this analysis as wrong somehow. Seriously, how comical would that be? This man that attempts to lecture Netanyahu when confronted with the facts, how would he respond? I truly would love to see him confronted with this…and then the rest of the world! Great job David!

      Nothing new, too true. But it bears repeating, and repeating, and repeating, especially in such a clearly argued form, to counter the Arabs' and their supporters' ceaseless hawking of their lies and distortions.

      • Brigitte

        I might add which much of the world is only too willing to accept as fact.

  • Marty

    Actually, recognizing Israel as a Jewish state isn't going to happen at all. abbas is trapped by his own ideology and islamic claims of supremacism. he's essentially a terrorist in a suit. Even if he somehow decided to be rational, abbas would probably and rather quickly become a victim of political violence. This worthy essay explains why it would be silly for Israel to make any further concessions. Instead, its government should simply annex those parts of Judea and Samaria required for national security and be done with it.

    • mlcblog

      How harsh this sounds! unfeeling.

  • Frans

    I don't think that the issue of recognition is religious in nature. I think it's national – especially since Israel constantly insists it is speaking for the Jewish people as a whole. No Palestinian can allow Israel to be recognized as a "Jewish State" because to do so would mean forever turning their backs on land that, until less than a century ago, was his/hers. Whatever your stance on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, there can be no denying that Palestinians, as a people, have suffered quite a psychological trauma. We cannot expect them to reconcile themselves to what they view as an inherently unfair outcome, especially if violent conflict – eg the occupation and the inevitable Palestinian reactions thereto – continues. I believe that the establishment of a Palestinian state would actually facilitate recognition of Israel as a Jewish state on the part of the Palestinians, and that Netnayahu is using the recognition demand as a tool to keep from recognizing Palestinian rights to statehood.

    There is also another issue. Is Israel truly a Jewish state? Aren't there Christians and Muslims living within its borders? Are these Christians and Muslims to be granted our own (yes, I am a Jew) version of dhimmi status? I believe that making Israel a Jewish state is actually a philosophical, political, religious and moral liability. At the very least, until all Jews can decide on what it means to be Jewish, there can be no such thing as a Jewish state, and it is not my impression that we all agree on what our Jewish identity really entails.

    This comment is in no way meant to denigrate Israelis, Palestinians, Jews, Muslims, or Christians.

    • Roger Zem

      "The land belonged to Palestinian Arabs less than a century ago".
      Really? My history books show that the Arab population in Palestine blossomed after the foundation of Jewish settlements. The Jews brought work opportunities, health care, better sanitary conditions, and more. Arabs poured in from Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere.

    • alan g

      Yes, Palestinians lived on the land which is now known as Israel. But so did jews. And so did Christians as well as bedoins. The fact is there was national title to the land until Israel was established. So how can the palestians, or for that matter, any other group actually lay claim for themselves? The UN did just that, when the state of Israel was established.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      I don't think that the issue of recognition is religious in nature. I think it's national – especially since Israel constantly insists it is speaking for the Jewish people as a whole.

      Okay, then please explain the permanent jihads of conquest being waged perpetually against the Hindu unbelievers in Kashmir and Jammu, against the Buddhist unbelievers in Thailand, against the Christian unbelievers in the Philippines, against the atheist and Orthodox Christian unbelievers in Chechnya and Russia, against the animist and Christian unbelievers in the Ivory Coast, Nigeria, and Sudan, against the Orthodox Christian Serb unbelievers in Bosnia and Kosovo, and on and on again ad nauseum? Including the stealth jihad via mass Muslim immigration to the West and other non-Muslim countries for the purpose of demographic conquest that altogether comprises the greater global jihad at large.

      Indeed, please explain what makes the permanent genocidal jihad of conquest being waged perpetually against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel by the Islamic world any different from the other aforementioned permanent jihads of conquest and why Israel alone should be singled out for vilification and demonization?

      Really, just how narrow-minded, myopic, and incredibly ignorant can you be? By the way, you are correct in a sense though, Islam is not a true religion, but it poses as being one to dupe the societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia.

      By the way, when it comes to the history of the Middle East as well, you have swallowed nothing but taqiyya meant to dupe gullible useful idiots like a crack addict addicted to crack swallows crack.

    • mlcblog

      Just like America, the land of the free, we have many types of people living here, and Yes, the whole thing is a spiritual battle, Israel being designated by God for the Jews by the covenant He made with them in ancient times, with Ishmael's descendants roaming and multiplying and fighting with their brothers the Jews. You can read it in the Bible or in many history books.

    • Nemesis

      You may be a Jew, but you're a particularly ignorant one, since you accept the Muslim position that Jews are not a people or a nation, but ONLY a religion. What defines a nation is having common language, culture and history, and if you think Jews don't have those three things, I think it's time for you to join some other community. Israel is a Jewish state in exactly the same way that Italy is an Italian state, and last time I looked there were millions of non-Italians living there. Would you suggest that non-Catholics in Italy are dhimmis of some sort? No? Then why do you think non-Jews in Israel would be? You share your ignorance with many in the West, but it doesn't make it any less shocking.

    • aspacia

      Franz, you have been reading Haarez, and are incorrect. Read and listen to the political and religious leaders in the vast Muslim World.

      The violence could end if the vast Arab World absorbed her brethren like Israel did. Instead they use their brethren to destroy Israel because of their faith and honor.

      The establishment of a Palestinian state will only be another remake of Gaza-another violent Muslim country, one in 20+ whose main purpose is to destroy Israel.

    'Is Israel truly a Jewish state?'……..uh, Fran, though I am NOT Jewish, I find it quite amusing that you really wonder about this. If Israel is not a jewish state, then I speak no language. Please…

  • muchiboy

    Perhaps,but we cannot minimize the more practical motive that and while accepting Israel as a Jewish state would further damn the chance and hope of one day the Palestinian diaspora returning to their lost or stolen homeland and birth right.You would think the Diaspora would have a grasp of,if not some empathy for,the Palestinian flight and plight.I can think of some less then flattering motives on the part of Jews for their failings.The less said the better. muchiboy

    • ObamaYoMoma

      What stolen homeland? Not only were most of the Arabs that lived there prior to the 1948 war relative newcomers that had migrated to the region from surrounding regions for the easier way of life that had been created by the early Zionist Jews with their modern western technology and modern western knowledge and ingenuity, but they also left not because Israel stole their homeland, but instead they left at the behest of their leaders, who had vowed to annihilate Israel in another mass genocidal holocaust of Jews.

      Then when their leaders were unsuccessful in annihilating Israel and perpetrating a second mass genocidal holocaust of Jews, they were left out in the cold as refugees and abandoned by their leaders. Hence, quit blaming Israel for what it is not responsible for, and blame those Arabs that left for being so stupid and their leaders that subsequently abandoned them, for convincing them to leave.

      In addition, those same leaders that caused those Arabs to become refugees and then subsequently abandoned them, also ethnically cleansed from their own lands approximately 800,000 Jews with nothing but the shirts on their backs, while confiscating their property and killing thousands of them in pogroms in the process. Hence, don’t tell me they didn’t have room or the money to integrate those stupid damn Arab refugees.

      Of course, all of this totally unnecessary brain damage never had to happen in the first place and never would have happened if not for Islam. Hence, like a crybaby you can continue to blame Israel for acting in self-defense, but the reality is no one is more responsible for those refugees’ plight more than themselves and the Arab leaders that suckered them into leaving and then subsequently abandoned them to become the proxy of their permanent genocidal jihad of conquest being waged perpetually against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel.

      The whole Palstinian robbed of their land idea is a myth started by radical socialists back in the day, enemies of Israel, unhappy Arabs who wanted to legitimize a claim against the state of Israel that they were powerless to stop. They have had to watch it thrive and prosper before their very eyes.

    "In other words, if Abbas were to acknowledge that Israel is a Jewish state, then he would have acknowledged that Jews have the right to political self-determination and national self-realization, just what he claims for the Palestinians, and just what the Qur’anic concept of dhimmitude denies to Jews. Arab leaders don’t want to do that because that would strengthen the Israeli argument for Israel’s just demand of those same rights. And such an admission would acknowledge that Jews can have sovereignty over Muslims (Arab Muslim citizens of Israel) and over what Muslims call Muslim land. " There is the real reason for the endless war against the Jewish state. Until it is addressed, there cannot be any reconciliation, and the war will continue forever. Too bad that Obama thinks that the path to resolving the problem is slicing and dicing Israel, expelling 600,000 Jews (as Abbas wants to do in the back-to-1967 plan), and being unable to make a single basic demand of the Palestinians: accept a Jewish state.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Thus, Netanyahu is right to demand recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. Since the real motivator for Arab animus against Israel is the Jewish character of the state, there can be no end to the conflict until Arab leaders abandon these Islamic religious concepts. This is not likely to happen any time soon.

    In addition, per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, it is an obligatory duty for ALL Muslims to fight jihad in the cause of Allah to make Islam supreme throughout the world as well. In any event, you are right, everything else is fiction and a disinformation campaign conveniently used to dupe gullible useful idiots. The permanent genocidal jihad being waged perpetually against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel is permanent, just like the greater global jihad at large being waged against all unbelievers is also permanent and will continue to be waged perpetually until such time as Islam achieves its goal or until such time that the non-Muslim world renders the Islamic world incapable of waging jihad.

    One more thing, every time you portray the permanent and perpetual genocidal jihad of conquest being waged against the Jewish unbelievers in Israel as a conflict between Arabs and Israel instead of what it really is, you help foster the disinformation campaign being used by the Islamic world to dupe gullible useful idiots. Not only that but you also help the Islamic world to hide their permanent and perpetual greater global jihad at large being waged perpetually against all unbelievers around the world. Moreover, Israel’s biggest nemesis today – Iran – isn’t even an Arab country, but a country largely comprised of Persians and not Arabs. Hence, it is also obviously very false as well.

    • welldoneson

      The mistaken notion that Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, and others are "Arab" countries serves to remind us that Islam has never been anything more than a front for Arab Imperialism. All those countries were conquered when Islam swept throught the region a few centuries after the Roman Empire collapsed. NONE of that is truly "Arab" land; that exists only in Saudi Arabia. Islam is a bizarre, obscene distortion of the Jewish/Christian tradition. Islam is perhaps Mankind's largest, most destructive mistake.

      There is no such thing as "Palestinian land." In fact there is no such thing as a Palestinian:

      "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism." – PLO member Zahir Muhsein

        Anyone who cares to actually read the full quote will undertand that the Hussein guy did not mean to say there were no Arab people on present Israeli and Palesinian land. What he meant to say was that the Arabs cannot be assigned a nationality 'Palestinians', but should be Arabs as such.

        You on the other hand are claiming there was no concept as Palestinian. Nationalities evolve over time and today a Palestinian is simply an Arab living in the disputed land.

    • welldoneson

    The Palestinians refuse to acknowledge Israel as a “Jewish state.” Their argument is that if Israel is a “Jewish state,” it will necessarily discriminate against non-Jews. The problem with this debating point is that those who use it apply it only to Israel; none ever voices any concern about states based on Islam and discriminating in favor of Muslims.

  • Geoffrey Ben-Nathan

    Dear Mr. Meir-Levi,

    I enjoyed your article very much.

    Could you tell me how the issue of the Jewish state and recognition of it was dealt with in a) The Oslo Accords and b). the Peace Treaties with Egypt and then Jordan.

    You mention the great C13-14th. Arab polymath Ibn Tammiyah. You state that Muslim
    'halacha' is based on his interpretations.
    May I suggest you visit the Wikipedia article on Ibn Tamiyyah (if you haven't already.
    The final paragraph of section 2.3 is VERY interesting. This mentions that Ibn Tamiyyah's work has come under renewed attention by today's Muslim scholars and that one of his students (Ibn Muflih) may have incorrectly conveyed ('misprinted' is the term they are said to use) a key word which came out as 'fight' rather than 'treat'.
    The note appended to this (note 15) is worth looking at. It shows we are dealing with material as late as May of this year.

    With the appropriate publicity given to this, perhaps one can see a face-saving route out of 'jihad'.

  • GreySky

    If it is ever reached, the current and any other artificial “peace agreement” will be illegitimate before it is ever signed because (1) all people living in Palestine regardless of religion, race, origin, etc. (hereinafter “All People of Palestine”) were never given a choice on how they want their land to be governed, and (2) all contracts signed under duress are null and void.
    The biggest problem in Palestine is that the Zionist regime never offered a choice to All People of Palestine on how they want to govern their land because the Zionist regime cannot exist as a democratic entity. If there was ever any democratic process in Palestine, Zionists would have been outvoted and the Zionist regime would have never existed. That is why the Zionist regime is the occupier because it does not offer choice (i.e. democracy), but instead imposes its regime (i.e. occupies). Imagine if Russians would simply occupy a town in the U.S. where they are in significant numbers and attempt to create a Russian state there without giving the rest of the Americans living there a choice. Imagine then if they would try to institute a “peace agreement” that would attempt to legitimize their occupation. The “peace agreement” would logically and legally be illegitimate because the Americans were not given a choice.

    Under all countries’ laws, any contract is null and void if it is signed under duress. The current Palestine “peace agreement” process reminds me of The Godfather movie where the mafia boss (i.e. the Zionist regime) made a guy “an offer he could not refuse” by placing a gun (i.e. Zionist conventional and nuclear arsenal) to his head and making him sign the contract. Like the mafia boss’ offer, any “peace agreement” other than the choice for All People of Palestine is a crime, and the contract is legally null and void.

    The bottom line is that All People of Palestine never wanted to divide their land into artificial two states the way the occupation and this “peace agreement” attempt to divide it. From the beginning of the Zionist regime to its unavoidable end, All People of Palestine and the region never wanted the Zionist regime and they do not want it even more after all the atrocities the Zionist regime committed. I just cannot believe how the Zionist regime can be so ignorant to think that this or any other “peace agreement” that does not allow people to choose how they want to be governed will last and ensure its people’s survival. The Zionist regime fails to realize that no matter if it succeeds in muscling this “peace agreement” by unspeakable historic coercion tens of millions of moral people around the world will oppose it until it is corrected, and until justice and free choice prevail. Also, ever increasing number of Jewish people are realizing that Zionism is becoming a destructive force for them and are leading the global resistance to it.

    Imagine in the current time if France would want to create its own state in Michigan and separate it from the U.S. French are a minority in Michigan so democratic vote on the separation would not work because they would be outvoted by the rest of the Americans living in Michigan. So imagine if they had a historic opportunity when the U.S. is at its weakest and militarily occupy a part of Michigan and impose a regime where only French can vote and all the others who lived there cannot. Furthermore, the occupiers rename the occupied part of Michigan as the “French State” where not only that Americans are not welcome, but they are systematically expelled over time creating huge refugee camps in nearby states of Indiana and Ohio. Imagine then that at that point in history the artificial organization called the United Nations is full of French supporters and somehow that makes the occupation “legal” and Americans who fight for their homes in the occupied part of Michigan are labeled as terrorists. The occupation is a part of a careful log-term plan (i.e. Zionism) of acquiring land by French, so literally days after the occupation is implemented (what a coordinated plan!) the occupiers import millions of other French from all over the world to increase their population in Michigan from around 100,000 to over 5 Million in a short period. Then Americans resist and fight to regain the occupied part of Michigan, but Russia steps in, sends weapons, cash, and everything else the occupiers need to sustain the occupation.

    What do you think all of us Americans would feel? We would hate French first, and then all of their supporters (Russia in this analogy) that make the occupation of our land possible. Still questioning yourself why people in the Middle East and other parts of the world do not like us? Because Zionist controlled our government, not the people, supported the very exact scenario as described above against our will and with our tax money making us accomplices in this unspeakable crime. The scenario that would outrage all of us Americans and make us fight against it if it happened in Michigan or anywhere else in the U.S.

    This comment is not intended to make derogatory remarks about France and Russia. It is merely used as an example of how Americans would be outraged and fight back in the same situation as the forced establishment of the Zionist regime and its occupation of Palestine.
    Urge your state representatives and senators to immediately stop any remaining support for the Zionist regime. Much of the support already stopped because of the increasing pressure on this issue, but we Americans need to completely distance ourselves from this oppressive regime and start actively opposing it

    The main Zionist claim is that they have a supreme right to some of Palestinian territory because they lived there thousands of years ago. Let’s examine the core and real nature of this claim.

    Firstly, this claim is mistaken and selfish in its core concept because Zionists fail to recognize that history is a continuum and that there were other people living in majority in Palestine before the Jews and also after the Jews. Zionists simply cut history at a convenient point for them and claim ancestral ties to the land as of that convenient point.

    Secondly, whatever the claim, it is beyond absurd to try to shape modern world based on thousands of years old maps. Imagine if the rest of the world would be reshaped by who was on the land thousands of years ago. It would cause horrific wars, countless refugees, and unimaginable human suffering, exactly what is happening in Palestine.

    Thirdly and most disturbing, Zionist goal was to establish a Jewish state wherever possible. Palestine may have been a preference, but Palestine was not the only location that Zionists planned as their state in modern times. Another location was Argentina where Jews have been migrating for hundreds of years for the purpose of establishing a state. Also, locations in Europe were on the list and that’s why the Catholic Church was killing/expelling Jews since Roman times (read the history of the Holly Inquisition). Whatever the location, Zionist plan was to simply occupy the people living on the land even if that would mean imposing a regime worst than Nazi Germany’s from which they escaped. And Zionists would just use a different ideological coloring than the one used in Palestine in the attempt to rationalize the occupation.

    In conclusion, the main claim on which the Zionist regime is built in Palestine is erroneous, selfish, and a lie. I am categorically against generalizing, and recognize that many Jews are against the crimes the Zionist regime is committing and that many Jews are leading the global resistance to it. They should be proud
