Who Is a Racist?

[FrontPageMagazine] David Horowitz - Even as Islamic Hitlerites gather in Iran to deny the first Holocaust of the Jews and to plot the second, former president Jimmy Carter tours America with a new book that describes Jews as racists and oppressors. It is a lie that Palestinians "had their own land, first of all, occupied," as Carter told National Public Radio this week. First of all, the Jews were in the land before the Arabs. Second, the Arabs who inhabited the Palestine Mandate in 1948, at the time of the creation the State of Israel, considered themselves Syrians. Third, the Palestine Mandate was not created on land taken from the Syrians or the Arabs. It was taken from the Turks who had ruled the region for four hundred years. By the standards of occupation and legitimacy Jimmy Carter invokes, Israel has more legitimacy as a Jewish state than Texas does as an American state, rather than a Mexican province. Why can't Jews have settlements in the West Bank? The answer is because the Palestinian Arabs are filled with a racist and theocratic hate towards Jews. They can't tolerate a non-Muslim, non-Arab people - however small a minority - living in their midst. Contrast Carter's attack on Jews living in the West Bank as "colonizers" who must be expelled with the fact that more than a million Arabs live in Israel, where Israel provides them with more rights - including the right to vote and elect Arab members of Israel's government - than any Arab who lives in any Arab state in the Middle East.
