'Lunatic, dangerously detached from reality' (and proud of it)

Moshe Feiglin gets it right in this piece at Arutz Sheva.
Today, those who claim that there is no Palestinian nation are considered lunatics, dangerously detached from reality. But what has happened in Israel in the last month shows that from the moment that the wall of Israeli non-recognition of those claiming sovereignty in our land was breached, Israel's demise began. When we recognized their claims to sovereignty in Israel as valid, we lost our own. It is like a seesaw.

Now that the entire world recognizes the "legitimate rights of the Palestinian nation," the possibility of wiping Israel off the map has also become valid. Not just according to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but, more ominously, on Western campuses - the world's ideological breeding grounds. This ongoing situation is much more serious and dangerous than any weapons of mass destruction.

One lesson that we learned from the Holocaust is that invalidation of a person's rights precedes invalidation of his very life. When we recognized the "Palestinian nation", we invalidated ourselves.


"If Barack Obama is so anxious for Netanyahu to agree in advance to the establishment of a Palestinian state, then let him pressure Abu Mazen to agree in advance that Israel is the Jewish state. Makes sense, doesn't it? Not so, at least if you ask the Americans. Netanyahu's announcement did not make an impression on Mitchell. At the end of their meeting, he said that the political process will be based on the solution of two states for two peoples. With no additions or reservations." ([Radical Leftist. CiJ]Akiva Eldar, Ha'aretz April 20, 2009)
Read it all.

I guess I'm a 'lunatic, dangerously detached from reality.' And I'm proud of it.

I wonder if Akiva Eldar is starting to get it yet.

For a long time, virtually all Israelis understood accepting a Palestinian state would lead to the erosion of Jewish national identity and it would negate the essence of Zionism. In other words, if Jews cannot explain why they deserve to be a sovereign nation in the Land Of Israel, they will perish from it. A Palestinian state will simply hasten Israel's dissolution from within. One is indeed a lunatic in seeking to stop a development the world sees as inevitable. That is where I stand with Moshe Feiglin in being detached from reality and proud of it - only if the Jewish people know who they are and why the country belongs to them will they have a future.
