Apartheid Guardian Says Only Jews Can be “Settlers”


They're evangelical Christians... in the West Bank. Which means they can't be settlers.

The problem with the whole, “It’s Anti-Zionism, Not Anti-Semitism” thing is that the distinction is actually made by race, not by citizenship.

The Guardian’s style guide is a case in point. It states that “settler” should be “confined to those Israeli Jews living in settlements across the 1967 line ie in the Occupied Territories”.

So an Israeli Arab who has the same citizenship living beyond the Green Line isn’t a settler. His town isn’t a settlement. A Russian non-Jewish immigrant who moves to an Israeli “settlement” isn’t a settler.

Now suppose there’s an Israeli Jew living in a “settlement”. Then he converts to Buddhism. Is he now no longer a settler?

According to The Guardian’s own style guide, he ceases to be a settler. Unless the Guardian is going by both race and religion, in which case he is still a settler, though perhaps half a settler.

To deal with The Guardian’s racial problem, suppose a couple, one half of which is Jewish and the other half is not, moves beyond the Green Line. Is their child considered a “settler”? What about that child’s child?

Does The Guardian have a blood quantum requirement of racial purity for “settler” status?

I would really welcome a response from The Guardian expert in charge of the racial categories of settlers on this subject.

Since The Guardian has decided that “settler” is a racial or religious category, rather than a question of citizenship, it also holds a belief that people should be restricted on where they can live based on race.

I hesitate to use the A-word, but it sounds a whole lot like The Guardian is advocating Apartheid.

  • Gee

    The Guardian not only advocates apartheid they are among it’s strongest supporters.

    The greatest practitioners of apartheid are the Muslim nations. Their racist laws make anything South Africa pale in comparison

      I don’t think the old South Africa stoned girls to death over “family honor”, executed gay teens.

      Islamofascist terrorist entities do.

    I strongly advise anyone who wants to know anything about the so called settlements (a.k.a. Jews building a home in their ancestral homeland of Judea and Samaria) to watch Eugene Kontorovich’s presentation on the subject. The points given are worth remembering.

    I say we should ship off the entire Guardian(communist) staff to Syria and grab cocktails and watch as Darwin has his fun.

    If they are in favor of the eviction of Jews from the historic Jewish homeland in Judea and Samaria, would they also be in favor of Arabs inside the Green Line being evicted? If they are in favor of the former and not the later, then they would be applying different principles to different peoples based on race. That would qualify them as racists.
