This article below exposes the complete insanity of the basic Israeli position. It is a completely irrational ideology based on confused combination of religion, Zionism, and secularism, and the result is closer to the Yankee cowby extermination mentality of the American West than to anything in the Biblical legacy (which however contains the seeds of that mentality in disguise, via the invented propaganda of Joshua, etc…)
We need to try and bring compassionate perspectives to this hopeless tragedy, yet we must not yield to Jewish/Israeli fanaticism that has created a fiction of the Jewish right to the lands of greater Israel. It seems too late to point it out, but we should at least attempt to expose Xtian complicity here on the Right.
The question is simple, and the Jewish/Israeli cultures can fight it as many centuries as they wish, and then lose at the end: the Biblical legacy of Jews does not grant any right whatsover to the lands of inner or greater Israel. That is the reality. That is the basis for sanity. It is probably too late for that, and thus the tragedy could go on for centuries. Americans at least must show the courage to stand back and warn their Jewish brethren to face this reality. In fact, this question will end up destroying American politics. It is beyond belief.

My Outline for a Solution in Gaza
Clear and concise, the steps towards achieving quiet in Gaza. Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel. The coastal train line will be extended, as soon as possible, to reach the entire length of Gaza.
— MK Moshe Feiglin
Feiglin is head of the Manhigut Yehudit [Jewish Leadership] faction in the Likud party and deputy speaker of the Israeli Knesset.
Ultimatum – One warning from the Prime Minister of Israel to the enemy population, in which he announces that Israel is about to attack military targets in their area and urges those who are not involved and do not wish to be harmed to leave immediately. Sinai is not far from Gaza and they can leave. This will be the limit of Israel’s humanitarian efforts. Hamas may unconditionally surrender and prevent the attack.
Attack – Attack the entire ‘target bank’ throughout Gaza with the IDF’s maximum force (and not a tiny fraction of it) with all the conventional means at its disposal. All the military and infrastructural targets will be attacked with no consideration for ‘human shields’ or ‘environmental damage’. It is enough that we are hitting exact targets and that we gave them advance warning.
Siege – Parallel to the above, a total siege on Gaza. Nothing will enter the area. Israel, however, will allow exit from Gaza. (Civilians may go to Sinai, fighters may surrender to IDF forces).
Defense – Any place from which Israel or Israel’s forces were attacked will be immediately attacked with full force and no consideration for ‘human shields’ or ‘environmental damage’.
Conquer – After the IDF completes the “softening” of the targets with its fire-power, the IDF will conquer the entire Gaza, using all the means necessary to minimize any harm to our soldiers, with no other considerations.
Elimination- The GSS and IDF will thoroughly eliminate all armed enemies from Gaza. The enemy population that is innocent of wrong-doing and separated itself from the armed terrorists will be treated in accordance with international law and will be allowed to leave. Israel will generously aid those who wish to leave.
Sovereignty – Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel. The coastal train line will be extended, as soon as possible, to reach the entire length of Gaza.
According to polls, most of the Arabs in Gaza wish to leave. Those who were not involved in anti-Israel activity will be offered a generous international emigration package. Those who choose to remain will receive permanent resident status. After a number of years of living in Israel and becoming accustomed to it, contingent on appropriate legislation in the Knesset and the authorization of the Minister of Interior, those who personally accept upon themselves Israel’s rule, substance and way of life of the Jewish State in its Land, will be offered Israeli citizenship.
