Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has confirmed that the state of Israel is for Jews only, confirming the ethno-nationalist basis of that country—claiming a status which is attacked as “racist” by the international Jewish lobby if any white European politician had to claim that right for their people.
Netanyahu’s confirmation that Israel is for Jews only came in a post made by himself on Instagram in response to a liberal Jewish TV actor Rotem Sela’s attack on government policies in the run up to the Israeli elections on April 9.
Sela had criticized Israel’s culture minister, Miri Regev, for saying on television that the Likud party’s main opposition, the “center-left” Blue and White party of Benny Gantz would form a coalition with Arab parties in the Knesset.
Netanyahu wrote back to her as follows:
“Dear Rotem, an important correction: Israel is not a state of all its citizens,” the prime minister wrote. “According to the nation-state law we passed, Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people — and not anyone else.
“As you wrote, there is no problem with Israel’s Arab citizens. They have equal rights and the Likud government has invested more than any other government in the Arab population.
“Likud only wants to highlight the central question in these elections: The choice is between a strong right-wing government headed by me or a left-wing government of Yair Lapid and Gantz with the support of the Arab parties. Lapid and Gantz have no other way of forming a government and such a government will undermine the security of the state and the citizens. The decision—another month at the ballot box. Good Day.”
The Basic Nationality Law to which Netamyahu refers was passed last year. It downgraded Arabic from an official language to a language with “special status,” made Hebrew the only official language, and stipulated that “Israel is the historic homeland of the Jewish people and they have an exclusive right to national self-determination in it.” It also states that an undivided Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
Netanyahu reiterated his point at the start of a cabinet meeting over the weekend, saying that Israel is the “nation state not of all its citizens but only of the Jewish people.”
Israel and the Jews have every right to claim a nation state for themselves, as do any other people. However, while claiming this right to themselves, the specifically deny it to anyone else, and white European people in particular.
Israel-supporting Jewish organizations and lobbies are at the forefront of attacking any white politician who dares to suggest that Germany should be for Germans, France for the French, or Britain for the British—and use their lobbying powers to get such people arrested for “racism” in Europe, and ostracized in America and elsewhere.
Netanyahu’s comments will, of course, be largely ignored by the Jewish lobby-controlled media in the West, even though their media aimed at Jewish readers carry the story quite prominently.
