The Final Solution to the Palestinian Problem?




In the darkest times of The Cold War (1959) Tom Lehrer's black humour song went:

For if the bomb that drops on you
Gets your friends and neighbours too,
There'll be nobody left behind to grieve….


We will all go together when we go,
All suffused with an incandescent glow.


Have you ever wondered why the Palestinians are not Israel's allies when it comes to opposing the nuclear weapons program in Iran? After all, as Tom so memorably sang "We will all go together when we go".
A nuclear holocaust visited upon me and my family, here in Israel, will also get my neighbors, Ahmed and his family, living in a West Bank/Judea village just five minutes drive from my front door.

Iran is solely developing nuclear weapons to bomb Israel with, and this would also be the Final Solution for the Palestinian Problem.

There is no contradication between destroying Israel together with Arab Palestine  - and all the occupants of our region, both Jews and Arabs together "all suffused with an incandescent glow" – with the Iranian + Palestinian objective of "liberating Palestine".

How is this, you may ask – surely the destruction of Palestine is the polar opposite of what the Palestinians and Iranians want? Why else would they have sacrificed so much for the claims to "an independent Palestinian State, living in peace side by side with Israel"?

However, my friend, you and almost the entire world have mistaken the Palestinians' and their supporters' (such as Iran) true objectives.

They have sacrificed a lot, it is true, for their objectives. Palestinians have given their children to two intifadas (over 5000 Palestinian 'martyrs'). But their objective is NOT a peaceful Palestinian State, living side by side in peace with Israel.

Their objective is, and always has been, the destruction of the State of Israel, and the annihalation of the Jews/Israelis. Yes, some Palesatinians have sometimes voiced support for a partial Palestinian State, but only within the context of this being a tactical step towards that final goal.

And if you doubt me, then consider: why do the Palestinians support an Iranian Bomb?

They support it, because an Iranian Bomb, dropped on Israel will achieve their objective. The destruction of Israel and the annihalation of the Six Million Jews/Israelis. And the simultaneous and glorious martyrdom of two million Palestinians. What greater fulfillment could any devout Moslem aspire to – what could be even more glorious than sacrificing just five thousand of their own children - than the sacrifice of two million? If you believe this is far fetched, recall a world just fifty years ago, where two superpowers faced off, armed with thousands of nuclear bombs, apparently each willing to sacrifice the whole planet and all of its inhabitants for their ideals.

We will all go together when we go,
All suffused with an incandescent glow.
