On April 10, 2011 – Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told Israel Radio: “Those who came here in order to set up a national home have to know how to stand firm. For those who want complete quiet, there is Finland and there is Western Europe, and they can go there.” He also said Israel would act to bring down the Hamas regime in Gaza only when absolutely necessary because such action would require entering and retaking the Gaza Strip.
Remember, when Helen Thomas gave a similar advice to the western Jews occupying Arab Palestine, she was forced to leave her 50-year post at the White House.
Correct me if I am wrong – Ehud Barak had admitted three historical facts in his above statement; 1) he implies Israel is not a national home because it must be set up, 2) he recognizes Jews do have an option to leave in peace elsewhere and 3) he recognizes all Zionists’ whining about so-called ‘anti-Semitism’ is nothing but a hoax to support Jewish centuries-old dogma of victimization.
Professor Stephen Walt (Harvard University) noted in April 2010 in Foreign Policy that between 700,000 to one million Israeli Jewish citizen are living in foreign countries, and emmigration has outpaced immigration since 2007. The reason for this exodus, according to professors Ian Lustick (University of Pennsylvania), Stephen Walt and others is that “moderate” Israelis are abandoning the Zionist project, ostensibly fed up with Israeli policies, have never actually troubled to ask the Israeli expatriates why they left.
According to Walt, the conflict with the Palestinians in eminently solvable, but “because Netanyahu has long opposed the creation of a viable Palestinian state and instead wants to extend Israel’s control of the West Bank, he has to lay out a set of demands that will endlessly delay the process and make it hard for Obama to put meaningful pressure on him.”
Some Israeli intellectuals believe that the only non-Palestinian people still living in Israel are the hardcore Zionists, fanatic religious Jews and Ethiopian Jews.
I have no clue why Barak chose Finland because it has only a few thousands of Jewish population and seeks EU and NATO’s protection against its great fear of Russia. Finland has 120 soldiers as part of NATO forces in Afghanistan.
And finally, some words of wisdom from former French Jewish Ambassador to UK, Daniel Bernard: “All the current troubles in the world are because of that shitty little country Israel. Why should the world be in danger of World War III because of those people?”
