As many people may have heard Israel has opened up another round of peace negotiations.

According to this story from the Blaze, (first time linking a story to the Blaze, the new opinion site from Glenn Beck, squuuuueeee), Israel is willing to divide up neighborhoods in Jerusalem in order to accommodate the Muslim population in the region, and form two separate states in the region.

Now, this is…a very bad idea.

I do not know exactly why it is such a bad idea but it is one.

They should be working on building a future together, as one nation, as one people. They may be able to accomplish so much together, as they can apart.

Plus the terrorists don’t want this, the bad guys do not want this, this is the albatross that they have held over the world.

In Facebook there was an article…an opinion thing…posted by the group “The Truth about Israel’s defensive actions against the flotilla.” posted an issue of what to do about Zionism in academia.

It has occurred to me, with this whole debate, really has a lot to do with the debate that has gone on with issues of divine providence and Manifest Destiny the issue really is the similar.

Does Israel have the fundamental right to survive? Of course it does.

The Prime Minister should do everything to encourage a debate but there is very little other that then he, or anyone else, can legitimately do.

But that is the issue, just what is Zionism?

And just what else can we do?

Should Israel divide itself into two separate nation states?

I think this is a fundamental question.

One that we have gone through in our history of this Nation.

I have been watching a lot of Glenn Beck recently, trying to catch up…I got…a little behind :P. Anyways about the Native Americans…I had no illusions that they were not barbaric but a different and advanced society. I just did not know how advanced, or the significance of it.

I suggest that you find Beck’s Civil Rights Special and watch it for yourself.

It occurred to me just how history would have been different had we united with the Native Americans instead of becoming two separate entities.

What would have happened had we become one?

I mean maybe I am having a slight fantasy or dream here but it would be something.

Granted America in many ways is the story of unification and trying to move beyond differences.

Can we not try the same thing in this instance?

Again this could be a dream and there are parties all across the world that are trying to ensure that this never happens, but I think that this is the key.

Politicians and people all over the world are going to try to tell us that this can never happen. And that what to do about Israel, the Middle East, and Iran is going to be an important issue in the upcoming elections.

We are going to be told various things and posturing from all sides.

I just think that we need to show solidarity. Israel and the Jews have a right to exist like anyone else. I think Sarah Palin has the right idea actually, or similar.

We need to show solidarity with our friends, and our allies.

People of all faiths, persuasions, must come together in support.

We do not need to send ships, missiles, planes, or soldiers there. We do not have to invade.

But we must show the world that any Nation has the fundamental right to survive, to make their own mistake, and their own way in the world.

Because we have made our own mistakes.

  1. Back up the wagon here. Israel by no means is even doing anything remotely like Manifest destiny. Before WW2, that land was a barren and desolate place with little signs of civilization. Then Jews started to move in, and Arabs moved in with them for the jobs. Grant it, Arabs had a head start since Jews were exiled from the land way back in ancient times.

    But Jews are the natives. Israel is their ancestral lands and the Palestinians are descendent’s of colonizers. Imagine the Cherokee reclaiming their ancestral lands in the US, that’s what Zionism is. The return of the Jewish people to their land.

    The point is to provide Jews with a safe haven, a Jewish state. You can’t have that if Muslims want to start Knessset session with a Muslim prayer as opposed to a Jewish blessing.

    This is why they want a separate state for the colonists (Palestinians) in order to allow the natives (Jews) some sense of security. A home. There are many many none Jewish Israeli citizens that enjoy the same rights as their Jewish brothers. But Palestinians don’t want to be Israeli anymore than Jewish Israelis want to be Palestinians.

    • I was not saying it was, but I think that could be what some radical could twist it as.

      And you do raise a good point about the situation down there and why Palestine should get its own state but I am not convinced that it would be the best of ideas.

  2. yeah…..Jews and Christians to a certain extent historically speaking have the more valid claim to Jerusalem in the land of Israel….which was actually renamed by the Romans to Palestine….if I’m recalling some of pini’s postings about the subject correctly

    • sounds right from what I have heard myself.
