David Horowitz: Kill More Arabs

By Administrator on Uncategorized

David Horowitz, former Marxist gone to neocon seed, salivating over a possible war in the Middle East, writes: “Americans need to take a hard look at what is going on in the Middle East, because it provides the clearest picture possible of the war we are in. The war reveals the impossibility of a Palestinian state and the necessity of a civilized occupying force in a region that is populated by a people who have been terminally brainwashed into an ideology of hate, which makes their self-government a crime waiting to happen.”

Civilized—you know, like bombing families with twelve children while they sleep.

In other words, the Israelis should run roughshod over the Arabs forever because, as David tells us, all of them, down to the last man, woman, and child are “bad guys,” as they like to say in Washington.

From the Black Panthers to the Likudites, Horowitz has made quite the transformation, although the fanaticism and radicalism has not left his bones. He considers himself a “conservative,” codeword these days for a Jacobin neocon. He writes: “The goal of the United States and Israel and all freedom-loving and civilized people in this war must be the destruction of the Hamas and Hizbollah leadership, their military infrastructure and capabilities. If there was a UN worthy of the name, it would expel Syria and Iran from its body, and send a Security Council armed force to the West Bank and Gaza to institute an occupation whose duration should not be less than a generation. During this occupation, the hate schools of the West Bank and Gaza should be revamped so that the children of Palestinian Arabs are taught basic rules of civilized behavior—tolerance instead of ethnic and religious hatred…”

Horowitz wants the United States to join in on the brutal and illegal attack against the people of Lebanon, sort of a continuation of Iraq, a “war” even Philip Zelikow, Bush advisor, admitted was launched in Israel’s name.

Horowitz, like John Bolton, would like to see the United Nations “reformed” (i.e., all countries not with us, but against us, evicted, leaving about two or three nations, including a couple broken down ones from eastern Europe tagging along with their rattling tin cups). This new membership will be tasked with indoctrinating Palestinians, making damn sure they finally understand resistance is futile and they are, indeed, nothing but lowly hewers of wood and drawers of water for the altar of Yhwh, or at least the Zionist state.

In fact, for the current generation of Likudites and their neocon fellow travelers, this status is too good—the Palestinians must be ethnically cleansed (more polite Israelis call this “transfer,” sort of like a ticket punched at a bus terminal, although for many Palestinians this bus ride will end up in a squalid refugee camp, later to be bombed by another generation of Israelis, citizens of the only democracy in the Middle East).

Golda Meir simply refused to acknowledge the Palestinians. However, the group of Israelis supported by Horowitz are determined to kill them—that is if the Palestinians cannot summon up the required humility to grovel and beg for their lives, plead for a place at the table, or rather beneath the table, where the dogs fight for the master’s scraps.

Horowitz and his buddies think they have a monopoly on civilized behavior and tolerance, all the while supporting and cheerleading ethnic and religious hatred, beginning with Arabs and extending out to encompass Mizrachi or Sephardic Jews from Arab countries. Down near the bottom, near the Arabs, are the Ethiopian Jews.

Israel has the sort of democracy practiced in Alabama, circa 1920, or maybe South Africa. No, Israel is far worse than South Africa, as the latter did not habitually attack Tswanaland or Bushmanland the way the former attacks Gaza and the West Bank.

Anyway, it is telling the way the Israelis are conducting themselves in Lebanon, refusing to send in ground troops and instead attacking the Lebanese from the air and sea with U.S. provided F-16s and Apache attack helicopters. Israel remembers well how it suffered a humiliating defeat in 2000, forced to leave southern Lebanon due to the persistence of Hezbollah. If they send in ground troops, they will face once again explosive-laden donkey carts and land mines at every turn. It will be a nightmare and Olmert knows it.

But then there is always Israel’s “friend,” the United States, a lumbering and stupid giant repeatedly suckered into fighting battles for the conniving outlaw state. If Israel can stir up enough trouble—attack Syria, piss off Iran, get them involved—the United States will undoubtedly do Israel’s bidding once again.

And that will put a smile on David Horowitz’s face.
