Seeing Beyond The Oslo Delusion


An excellent article at the Times of Israel by Dr Mike Lumish of friend blog  Israel Thrives just uploaded. Highly recommended.. We are in a propaganda war as vicious as that forecast by Orwell and those with the hateful totalitarian minds are winning. This will be a catastrophe for humankind.

Seeing Beyond the Oslo Delusion
 The Oslo Delusion is the mistaken belief that if only Israel would jump through certain hoops then there would be peace between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East.  At the center of the Oslo Delusion is the notion that the Jews of the Middle East have oppressed the Arabs in their tiny part of the world and if only Jews would be nicer then Hamas would have no reason to shoot rockets at them and dictator Abbas might stop encouraging genocidal hatred toward Jews on Palestinian Authority television.
It was the Oslo Delusion, of course, which gave us the failed Oslo “peace process.”  The reason that the peace process failed is not because Israel failed to do this, that, or the other, but because the goal of the majority population throughout the Middle East is not to live in peace with the Palestinian-Jews, but to eliminate Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people.  Palestinian-Arab nationalism, and, in fact, Palestinian-Arab ethnic identity, was born out of racist-religious opposition to Jewish self-defense and Jewish autonomy on Jewish land.  Period.
The Long Arab War Against the Jews of the Middle East has, as of this moment, five phases.
These are:

Phase 1, 1920 – 1947: Riots and Massacres

Phase 2, November 1947 – April 1948: Civil War in the British Mandate

Phase 3, 1948 – 1973: Conventional Warfare

Phase 4, 1964 – Present: The Terror War

Phase 5, 1975 – Present: The Delegitimization Effort

I date the Delegimization Effort from the 1975 United Nations declaration of Zionism as racism.  It is the Delegitimization Effort which is currently proving to be the most effective weapon in the anti-Israel Arab arsenal.  The reason for this is because it not only erodes Israeli support throughout the world, but because it also justifies the never-ending violence against us.  According to the delegitimizers Israel is a racist, colonialist, imperialist, militaristic, apartheid, racist state that should never have come into being to begin with.
It is the Big Lie and it serves to weaken the Jewish minority will to defend itself even as it inflames the vast Muslim majority to hatred against Jews and, thus, violence toward Jews.
What delegitimizers would have the world believe is that despite the fact that the Arab Middle East is a brutal and entirely illiberal region, it is the democratic Jewish State of Israel which represents the main abuser of human rights and therefore Israel must be perpetually condemned and eventually eliminated.  This is, in fact, a continuation of the National Socialist delegimization effort against the Jews of Europe in the early part of the last century transplanted to the Middle East with the assistance of people like Haj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini, the former “Grand Mufti” of Jerusalem.
