Conclusion: But There Is a G-d
in Israel

 

bThe analysis and proposed transfer of Arabs from Israel bthat I have set down are not personal views. They are certainly bnot political ones. This is the Jewish outlook, based on halakah the blaw as postulated in the Torah.

bThe removal of all Arabs who refuse to accept the exclusive, bunquestioned Jewish sovereignty over Eretz Yisrael is not only blogical and normal for any Jew with a modicum of an instinct for bself-preservation; it is also the Jewish halakic obligation. It is im- bportant that we know this in order to realize what true “Jew- bishness” really dictates and in order to instill in ourselves the bfaith and assurance that if we do this, all the nations in the world bwill be incapable of harming Israel.

bThe Torah viewpoint on the status of non-Jews in Eretz bYisrael is part of a total viewpoint on the very nature of the bJewish people and of the Land of Israel. Of necessity, it opens up bthe questions: What is a Jew? Why the Land of Israel? What is bthe relationship of Jew to Gentiles? In the eyes of Judaism, Jew- bish nationalism, as such, is meaningless. What, after all, is the blogic behind a separate nation, flag, parliament, defense system? bWhy set up barriers between people? What nonsense is the na- btional anthem that glorifies one people that is, in essence, no bdifferent from another? Nationalism is, at best, foolish. At worst, bit leads to hatred, to division, to war. There is no special mean- bing to the Jewish people if it is merely one more of the myriad of bnations. In that case, the fate of the Jew is like the fate of the bMoabite or Canaanite or Finn or Turk. The Jewish people can bthen exist, evolve, and die out. Its disappearance from the world bscene is then as possible, and as probable, as that of all the other bancients who were Jewish contemporaries in biblical times and bare long since gone.

bBut the Jewish people is not merely one more nation. b
