  • in 1942, the World Zionist Organization's official aim was for a "Jewish Community" in Palestine; the Biltmore Program said "Eretz Yisrael will be based as a Jewish (only) community, to be integrated into a new democratic world."

Hard-line militancy used violence to displace Arabs, gain power, keep it, and rule by strength, confrontation, intimidation, and violence.

Premeditated state terror and naked aggression became self-defense. Civilians were legitimate targets. Freedom fighters were called terrorists. Laws don't apply. Only Jews have rights. Arabs were called inferior.

Israel claimed the right to oppress them without restraint or regard for laws of war or humanitarian considerations. Demands replaced negotiations. Israel is all take and no give. Peace process hypocrisy offers nothing. It was stillborn from inception and remains so.

Palestine remains occupied for decades. Israel reigns death, destruction, oppression, immiseration, and loss of land and freedom with impunity.

Judaization through land confiscation, displacement, and settlements is official policy. It's based on the notion that Israel belongs solely to Jews. Arabs must be displaced and forcibly driven from all parts of Judea and Sumaria Israel wants, including Jerusalem as its exclusive capital.

Palestine's 1948 Nakba never ended. Palestinians are seen as existential threats. Israeli Arabs are called fifth-column ones. According to Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders, they reflect a demographic problem. Removing them and stealing their land solves it.

Issue one is creating an ethnically pure Jewish state by any means necessary. Zionism justifies Jewish ethnocracy, exclusivity, and superiority. Laws favor Jews. Arabs are denied rights. Violence is policy to check them.

Ideology becomes convenient myths for justification. It claims Israel's struggling for survival against hordes of hostile Arabs. They reject peace, prefer violence, plan Israel's destruction, so conflict's chosen to suppress them.
