It is hard to know which is more pathetic, Netanyahu or Zakaria. The first is a brazen liar and the latter a complete idiot, or lickspittle.
The promotion of Israel vs its capitalist economy is idle. The overall situation of Israel is the de facto sunset of jewish history. We can doubt that, after all , the power of the Israelis is very great, and insidious. But the reason why the end is approaching is that sixty years of Israel shows that jews can never carry the dream of spiritual leadership as a special elite. They can only give new meaning to the condition of being hated. The idea was always dubious but now we can see that it can’t happen that way. The flaw in jewish thinking is simple: an exclusive minority can’t lead. It can use mindcontrol and subtle leverage to force the issue, but more and more now the friends become disenchanted, soon enemies.
It is grotesque to think that a state based on jewish legal exclusivity could ever have come into existence, but almost as remarkable is the stubborn determination to make that the future, even by sacrificing an entire people, the Palestinians.
History shows an irony: the humble Israelites were the victims of many aggressors, like the Assyrians. Now they have taken the place of the aggressors, and their empires. The end is always nigh in that case.
Jews are a puzzle all over again. How could such an intelligent and resourceful people have thrown away such an opportunity and turned almost by choice into a malevolent gang of bad guys?
What is the end? normal assimilation and/or jewishness as is made into a universal membership group and in any case no rightwing attack mode is called for: doing nothing will serve the dissipation of the legacy. This is not antisemitism or a demand to do anything. Jews/Israelis have sunk their own history.
