The upcoming official National State of the Jewish People
By Carolyn Yeager
A PROPOSED LAW THAT IS BEING FULLY SUPPORTED BY PRIME MINISTER BINYAMIN NETANYAHU (who said a month ago he would get it passed within 60 days) seeks to add to the Basic Law of Israel the words “the nation state of the Jewish people.” Israel has no constitution by direct vote of its people, but, like Germany, uses a Basic Law as an equivalent.
The proposal specifies that the right to self-determination in Israel would be unique to the Jewish people. It also states that
- Israel will establish [separate?] ethnic communities where every [non-jewish] resident can preserve their culture and heritage;
- the Law of Return for all Jews is established as part of the Basic Law;
- the Hebrew language will be the official language, while Arabic (currently also designated an official language) will be demoted to a special status;
- the Hebrew calendar would become official;
- Hebrew law would inspire the legislators.
Uri Avnery, an Israeli journalist-critic to the left of the Likud party,writes that “the Jewish People consists of all the Jews in the world, more than half of whom live outside Israel and are citizens of other states.” The Arab citizens, more than 20% of the population, “will remain citizens but the state does not belong to them.”
Avnery additionally comments that the new law changes the legal assumption until now that Israel is a “Jewish and Democrtic State” in equal measure. Now “Jewish will become more important than ‘democratic’ and trump it if there is a contradiction, as there frequently is.”
Benji Netanyahu is confident of the passage of the bill – “no problem” – because there is no serious opposition, except from the Arab faction. So Avnery expects it to soon become the law of the land.
He asks, is “Jewish” a national or a religious designation? He answers, most Israeli’s will say both. “Nation” and “people” (and religion) are considered synonyms. Thus, Jewish people = Jewish nation. He makes this interesting comment about so-called secular Jews in Israel:
All the Jews who grew up in Israel are products of the Jewish educational system, based on the Bible. This produces in their mind a set of ideological certitudes that cannot be eradicated.
The People of Israel was born in a conversation between God and Abraham in a place located in today’s Iraq. This is of course a legend, like a large part of the Hebrew Bible, including the forefathers, the exodus and the kingdoms of David and Solomon. (Their existence is disproved, inter alia, by their total absence from the voluminous correspondence of Egyptian rulers and spies in the Land of Canaan.)
But historical evidence is unimportant here. The fact is that every Jewish child in Israel carries the Bible deep in their consciousness. Meaning: Jews are special. Jews are unique. It’s “them” and “us”. The whole world against us.
One member of the Knesset Dr. Einat Wilf from the Independence party announced his support because “the state of Israel was established for one purpose only and that is – to be the national home of the Jewish people. This is the essence and raison d’être.” The same was also stated by PM Netanyahu. It is interesting to note that in the Federal Republic of Germany, several chancellors (including Angela Merkel) and major news editors have declared that the raison d’être of the FRG is to defend, support and assure the well-being of the State of Israel – not of Germans or Germany!! This is the obligation incurred from the “Holocaust.”
How is this all going to work out? We’re on a path toward irreversible race-mixing, darkening and lower IQ’s in Europe and US-Canada-Australia, while the National State of the Jewish People makes sure that won’t happen in their homeland. I can only shake my head in wonder.
