The Israel Illusion: A Warning To The West

As time goes by, defending Israel gets easier and easier, even though the demonization of Israel gets worse and worse. With things like Hamas posting videos and setting up websites to show how good life is in Gaza (to try and promote tourism), the claims of the anti-Israeli campaigners becomes more and more absurd. What isn’t absurd, however, and something far more sinister, are those still pushing the same narrative about Israeli brutality/oppression and 'Palestinian' victims, regardless of what happens on the ground.

Propaganda vs Reality

Whether it’s the types of unapologetic, open and unrestrained Anti-Semitic attacks on the streets of Europe, or mass terror operations (such as 7/7), the instant explanation by Muslims and their apologists is “it’s all because of Israel”.

Gaza City - What, no bomb damage??

So why do this? What is the purpose of portraying a wildly different reality of Israel? If the likes of the BDS mob were really about fighting against injustice, then surely the improvement in the quality of life of the so-called 'Palestinians' should ease the calls to boycott Israel. The reason this isn't happening reveals the true motives behind the Israel-apartheid/BDS campaigns and also the real face of the proponents of the Muslim/victim narrative.

If Arabs are shown not only to be living in decent conditions, but superb conditions, then there cannot very well be any justification for acts of aggression against Israel, let alone against Jews around the world by Muslims.

In the beginning, the "Israel=evil" campaign was simply to portray Israel in a negative light. But as time has passed, and as the condition of the so-called 'Palestinians' improved (which has a lot to do with Israeli leaders appeasing their diplomatic counterparts in the EU and US as Arabs murder Jews with impunity), another purpose for this anti-Israel Orwellian version of reality became apparent: Islamisation.

The Middle East isn't the issue. The further the 'Palestinian' campaign is pushed, the further Islamisation increases.

In other words, the 'Free Palestine' campaign is the stealth jihad.

What is the difference between the fabricated call of 'Israel atrocities' in the West and decades of Arab dictators starting wars with Israel in order for them to distract attention from problems at home?

As it turns out, our previous understanding of this dynamic was only half the story. We now know from an increasing stock of quotations by Islamic clerics that waging war against Jews actually holds religious connotations for Muslims. So the fact that Arab dictators in years gone by have called their subjects to arms wasn't a successful attempt to distract their populations, it was seen by those populations as their leaders engaging in something good, morally, according to an Islam.

In this sense we can see exactly the same thing with the pro-'Palestinian' campaign. As many commentators and analysts have noted before, it's not so much that the 'Palestinian' camp are pro-Palestinian, it's that they are anti-Israel. The campaign to create a 'Palestinian' identity and country isn't so much about creating a 'Palestinian' state and identity, it's about destroying the Jewish state and Jewish identity/religion.

The Israel illusion, therefore, is a double-edged sword whereby on the one hand it is used as a war against the Jewish state, and an excuse in the West to legitimise a campaign of threats, violence and demands that the victim society work hard to please the Muslim community, or else. This is moving in the direction of Islamic societies where Muslims are superior in standing, and the infidels live in fear.

A few decades down the line and we can now see the results. Less than 100 years since the Holocaust, Europeans (and a growing minority of Americans), would be very happy to see Israel disappear. But the reason for this is that they see the disappearance of Israel as being the key to solving their own Muslim-violence problems within their own borders. 

If most people were informed about the reality, they'd very quickly realise the lack of difference between terrorism carried out in the West and terrorism carried out against Israel, people would quickly realise what is being perpetrated upon them.

At the heart of all this is a very basic psychological tactic. The 'Free Palestinian', BDS and Islamic terror campaigns work in tandem to seek to establish a link between the victim society's suffering and Jews. So if the cause for Britain (for example) being the recipient of Islamic aggression lies elsewhere, in some supposed foreign policy decision of the British government, then the solution lies in British foreign policy. Therefore the logical step in order to stop the Muslims targeting them, so the average Brit might think, is to join the chorus of condemnation against Israel and try to make the British government become hostile to Israel. 

Psychologically, condemning a 'far away place' feels so much safer and more convenient than confronting uncomfortable truths at home, not least because this also wins some superficial reward buying into the alleged purpose of standing up for human rights (while remaining silent when Hamas and Fatah murder their own people mercilessly). Thus condemning Israel (really Jews) is the Western infidel’s get-out clause. While the Muslim missionaries deny they are angry at Jews, only Israeli policies, so too does the infidel establish the same excuse in their own mind, more in an effort to convince themselves, than anyone else.  

But in the meantime, however, acts of Muslim violence continue to be carried out in the name of Israel (or do I mean Islam?), and the more the victims condemn Israel, the more Jewish owned businesses close (BDS), the more society turns a blind eye to attacks on Jews (and others), the more they adopt Islamic values and the notion that whatever Muslims demand must be given becomes the norm. The more noxious the European anger at "what they have to suffer because of Israel", the less offended they are by anti-Semitism and people who hold anti-Semitic beliefs. While Jews or Israelis who hold hostile feelings towards Arabs or Muslims are dismissed as being partisan 'because of your war with the Palestinians', Muslims who hold hostile views against Jews are seen as 'understandable'.

The more fictitious a society's beliefs about Israel (adopting the BBC's Muslim-innocent-victim narrative about the Arab-Israel war), the more likely they are to, eventually, find the Jew and infidel-hatred found in Islamic holy texts appealing. 

The Israel excuse has been created as a psychological tool in order to delay the victim society from facing reality and taking responsibility as citizens of the free world (if they ever wake up at all). The Israel illusion is a convenient way of ignoring the fact that Muslims are on an all out war, not only against Israel but against all infidel nations, and that while the majority of Muslims don't support the terrorist’s aims (Islamic rule - Shari'ah), this is not the vast majority, it is a little over half who say they do not support terrorism.

Clearly, the vast majority of Muslims are more offended by people who criticise their religion than terrorist actions in the name of their religion. Despite Muslims saying they don't support terrorism, we see the kinds of support Muslims give at elections to dangerous figures such as George Galloway and Ken Livingstone (in the UK) when they run for office. We see politicians who stand up for Israel having to go into hiding and receive police protection because Muslims threaten their lives; or politicians that are simply Jewish are targeted

This is all perfectly consistent with the warnings given about Islam and Islamic immigration. Muslims in Europe are completely unified with their supposedly more ‘radical’ co-religionists in the Middle East who chant 'one nation for a holocaust' at football matches.

Muslims in the Middle East have just overthrown their tyrannical secular leaders, thanks to America's help, and are replacing them with puritanical tyrants hell bent on bringing the return of the caliphate (for global jihad). The riots witnessed in Britain in 2011, and in Paris in 2005/6 is a taste of things to come, as the Muslims under religious obligation subjugate their host populations to assert Islamic authority.

Israel is not the cause, it’s an excuse.

Standing against Israel won't make things better, it will only make them worse. Not for Israel, but for you.
