The Israeli government has decided to offer all Israeli students ‘school tours’ to Hebron in the West Bank. This is a move to show Israel itself, the West Bank and, indeed, the world, that Jews ‘will always live’ in Hebron and the West Bank generally.
And why not? Hebron was a Jewish-majority city until it was ethnically cleansed (made Judenrein) in 1929 by Palestinian Arabs largely - or exclusively - under the control of the IslamoNazi (and personal friend of Hitler, Himmler, etc.) - the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem (Haj Amin al-Husseini).
Hebron remained Judenrein (ethnically cleansed, just as Jordan and Saudi Arabia are today) until 1967, when the Israeli state won back the West Bank (Samaria and Judea) in a defensive war against the armies of Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon.
Despite winning the 1967 War, Israel offered a large part (at one point, 95%) of the West Bank to the Palestinians on the guarantee that the Palestinians, as well as the Arab states, promised ‘peace’ and ended their general state of ‘belligerency’. This offer, like the offers of 1993, 2000 and 2005, was squarely rejected by the Palestinians. And, again, in 2000 and 2005, ‘land for peace’ (West Bank land) was offered by the Israelis and refused by the Palestinians.
3,000 Israeli students are expected to benefit from these ‘heritage tours’, which will include a visit to the Tomb of the Patriarchs. That would function as a glance into Israel’s past. The visits to the Jewish settlements in the heart of Hebron, on the other hand, will be glances into the future
This blog initially set out to focus primarily on Islam and the Islamisation of the UK. However, since that time the subjects covered have broadened. They now include (amongst other things): IQ tests, Jean Baudrillard, global warming, sociobiology, Marxism, Trotskyism, David Cameron, Foucault, Nazism, Ralph Miliband, economics, statistics and so on. - Paul Austin Murphy
