The state of Israel is a racist endeavour

 The state of Israel is a racist endeavour

Racism; A political or social system founded on the belief that racial differences produce an inherent superiority or inferiority of a particular race.

Zionist ideology states that the Jewish people as a race were chosen by God to claim Palestine as their homeland for the creation of a Jewish nation state. The divine exceptionalism and blatant racist overtones fundamental to this worldview define the creation of Israel as a racist endeavour; it is not anti-Semitic to call this out.

Unfortunately, the Israeli lobby, backed by powerful allies in the USA and England, have decreed that claiming Israel as an apartheid regime or an otherwise “racist endeavour” is in itself, a racist statement. The mental gymnastics required to accept this definition boggles the mind.

This outrageous definition of anti-Semitism does great damage to Jewish people the world over, many of whom suffer genuine anti-Semitism as a daily reality, this definition does major injustice to those who truly suffer. Smearing human rights activists as anti-Semitic is just another weapon in the Israeli arsenal now. 

Advocates for Israeli apartheid have attempted to warp the term “anti-Semitism” to the point where those who are fighting the most against racism, are being accused of being the most racist.

In recent days, much to the dismay of human rights organisations and activists the world over, the British Labour Party has capitulated to the nonsensical circus and has adopted the full regressive, racist and damaging IHRA definition of anti-Semitism.

It would be foolish for us to think that the Pro-Israel lobby isn't being brought to bear here in Ireland. The Israeli lobby is alive and kicking; finding natural allies in the bigoted DUP, Apartheid representatives have also found comfort in the arms of Fine Gael in the south. Whilst the Israeli lobbyists know well enough to not waste their time with Sinn Féin, Fianna Fáil now face a quiet but relentless assault as the Israeli lobby pressures them to bend. 

The opposition of Fine Gael and the apprehension of Fianna Fáil to recognise Palestinian statehood, should demonstrate to us all the power of the Israeli lobby here in Ireland; it is well funded, well trained and utterly ruthless.

It is therefore incumbent on all of us in Ireland to make it clear to Fine Gael, but especially Fianna Fáil, that any further capitulation to the Zionist terror regime isn’t representative of Ireland, and will be punished with direct action, mass protest and a hammering in the polls.
