Mainstreaming Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide in the Israeli Media

Date:

The Jerusulem Post carried an opinion piece today with the sub-heading: 



"The only durable solution requires dismantling Gaza, humanitarian relocation of the non-belligerent Arab population, and extension of Israeli sovereignty over the region." 



This echoes the words of Moshr Feiglin, deputy speaker of the Knesset, and a member of the ruling Likud Party, who, only two weeks ago said that "Israel must attack Gaza even more mercilessly, expel the population and resettle the territory with Jewish settlers". 

The expression of these views are not isolated, they represent a significant section of mainstream Zionist thinking and could not be freely aired if they did not. In reality they are the honest expression of the Zionist project to create an ethnically pure state, permanently rid of the native people. 

The only word that it is not permissible to say out loud is "Genocide". Yesterday, the Times of Israel ended up removing a blog post advocating Genocide as a means to bring a lasting piece to the region. We won't reproduce it here, but it is searchable online as others sites have archived it. 

What is happening in Gaza now is ethnic cleansing. Another hundred Palestinians civilians were killed last night in the latest Israeli military bombardment. It may not be permissible to say "Genocide" openly, but that is what the Zionist state is doing to the people of Gaza, and the media and the political class's propaganda attempts to make this acceptable. 

This means hell on Earth for the people of Gaza and an increasingly hostile environment for dissenting Israelis who oppose the slaughter.
