Olmert: Without a 'Palestinian' reichlet, Israel will be an 'apartheid' state

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert, in an appalling statement of moral equivalence, signed a joint declaration that equated 'Palestinian' terrorism with Israeli 'terrorism' (please note the placement of the scare quotes):
"We express our determination to bring an end to bloodshed, suffering and decades of conflict between our peoples; to usher in a new era of peace, based on freedom, security, justice, dignity, respect and mutual recognition; to propagate a culture of peace and nonviolence; to confront terrorism and incitement, whether committed by Palestinians or Israelis."
Today, Olmert further shamed his country by claiming that if Israel 'fails' to create a 'Palestinian' state reichlet, it will end up becoming an 'apartheid state.' (Hat Tip: Red Tulips)
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in an interview published Thursday that creation of a Palestinian state is a vital Israeli interest, and that failure to reach a peace agreement could plunge Israel into a South African-style apartheid struggle.

Such a scenario, he said, would mean "the state of Israel is finished."

While Olmert has long said that the region's demography is working against Israel, the comments published in Haaretz were among his strongest as he prepares a skeptical public for the renewed peace talks launched at this week's conference in Annapolis, Md.

His reference to apartheid was particularly explosive because Israeli officials have long rejected any comparison to the racist system once in place in South Africa.

Olmert was en route back to Israel at midday Thursday, and his office could not immediately confirm the veracity of the published comments in Haaretz.
I've discussed the false issue of the 'demographic time bomb' several times on this blog. But even if demography were an issue, it's still a long way to real apartheid. There are words to describe Olmert. I try not to use them in public.

I have come to the conclusion that Olmert is a traitor to the Jewish nation and needs to be deposed immediately, before he wrecks even further harm.

Honestly, during days like these I feel grateful that I do not live in Israel. How sad is that to write, as a Zionist? Times are not looking good.

More bad news: Vatican official says that 'Palestinians' have a "right of return."

Do these fools really think that if they make a Palestinian state, the Arabs now in Israel will go there instead and thus fix this demographic problem they otherwise foresee in Israel? Far from it. First, for sheer reasons of wanting to live in a more decent place, Arabs in East Jerusalem have started applying for Israeli citizenship, fearing that East Jerusalem might be given to the Palestinians. Second, the "Palestinians" believe that they have a right to pour into Israel proper, and even those presently living in Judea and Samaria will continue to press for that "right of return" *even if there is a sovereign Palestinian state created*. This was made clear at the time of Oslo. Contrary to what Bush thinks, a Palestinian state would not be a Palestinian homeland. They would still be trying to take over Israel, and certainly Israel's present Arab citizens would have no intention of leaving.

It was the same with Sharon when he agreed to expel Jews from Gaza. He was cleared of any charges of corruption.

Olmert agreed to return Israel to the 1949 Auschwitz lines, and was also given a free pass.

Obviously the Israeli police and judiciary in the pockets of the USA, or the charges would still stand.

Read President Bush’s speech after Olmert and Abbas had agreed everything:

“The Israelis must do their part. They must show the world that they are ready to begin — TO BRING AN END TO THE OCCUPATION THAT BEGAN IN 1967 through a negotiated settlement. This settlement will establish Palestine as a Palestinian homeland, just as Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people. Israel must demonstrate its support for the creation of a prosperous and successful Palestinian state by removing unauthorized outposts, ending settlement expansion, and finding other ways for the Palestinian Authority to exercise its responsibilities without compromising Israel’s security.”

The demographic problem could be solved by swapping the Galilee Arab triangle for Jewish towns and villages in Judea and Samaria. Israel would shed nearly a million Arabs but gain a quarter of a million Jews. That would make Israel a much more homogeneous state. And its not necessary to surrender Judea and Samaria to attain that objective.
