Jordan's King Abdullah: 'Even without the West Bank, Israel has a demographic problem'

Here's an excerpt of an interview on Israel Television with Jordan's King Abdullah. The interview was shown on Saturday night. In the interview, Abdullah states that Israel will still have a demographic problem even without the 'West Bank,' which of course points to what many Israelis claim: If we ever reach a 'settlement' with the 'Palestinians,' the next step will be for the Arabs to try to break off every majority Arab part of the State of Israel (i.e. parts of the Galilee and the Negev).

Let's go to the videotape. I'll have a transcript afterward (Hat Tip: IMRA).

Oded Granot: You said that you sat with Israelis and nobody could come up with an answer to your question 'how do they see Israel in ten years' time'. Did you allude to the demographic element?

Majesty King Abdullah II: If we take the question as you put it, first of all, the overwhelming majority of Israelis and Palestinians, I believe, do want peace. But the same amount of people are so frustrated that they have given up. That they don't think that it's ever going to happen. So you get people into the mentality of living with the status quo. But what does the status quo mean over the coming years?

There is people that say that Jordan should be Palestine. But how does that work? The Palestinians don't want it. We sure as hell don't want Jordan to be Palestine. The only way that you are going to be able to achieve it is an exodus of Palestinians and the only way that's going to happen is through force and violence. And would the international community and the Israelis endorse that?

But even if you did that, say there was a magic wand that was waived and the Palestinians are out of the West Bank, have you still solved your long term problem?

The Arab Israeli population, after many years, is going to be a challenge demographically to the Jewish State of Israel.

So, the way I look at the future of Israel is that unless we solve our problems today when you are in a position of strength, the options that you have in the future become less and less. And therefore more difficult.

So this concept of kicking this problem down the road. Let's solve it in a year. Let's solve it in two years. I think the dynamics that affect the challenge of Israel becomes far more dangerous.

Today you have 22 Arab Moslem countries total with the Moslem countries 57 nations that want to have this problem solved, because, you have to understand, this is not just a challenge for Israel's security. We also have our own problems in the region.
Forget for a minute that I believe that the whole demographic bogeyman is a lie. Can someone please explain to me why all those Arabs get to stay in Israel but every last Jew would have to be expelled from a 'Palestinian state'?

Thanks to the KING for his honesty..

Major areas of Israel that are dominated by arabs should be cut out of Israel asap.

Give them their freedom from israel, from their laws and control...

But also cut them off of Israeli courts, energy, medicine, universities, trade, phone grid et al...

Just carve out the majority of arab villages and give them to the arabs to self govern...

See how much they like freedom!

Very well, then: YOU, 22 Arab and 57 Muslim countries, solve them. Why should the one and only tiny Jewish country have this burden?

Everyone wants to solve their problems and fulfill their dreams on our backs:
Arab peace on our expense.
American security against terrorism on our expense.
Christian eschatological scenarios on our expense.
Leftist "Age of Aquarius" pipe-dreams on our expense.
Racial supremacist (both black and white) ideas on our expense.

Not for nothing is the Jewish Messianic dream described as no more than the end of "subjugation by kingdoms." Not Jewish supremacism. Not Jewish revenge upon non-Jewish enemies of ours. Nothing but freedom from the non-Jews' endless schemes hatched always, always on our expense.

Bimherah b'yameinu, amen!

No problem. The more Jews they can get into a further reduced area, the easier it will be to kill them. This is desirable even if a great number of Muslims have to be sacrificed in the process. It is for the greater good! All Jews (and all the other resident undesirables) will go to hell, and all martyred Muslims will go to heaven.

Then, the land will be cleansed, and the Muslim's can go on to the next step in converting the world to Islam.

Of course, as long as the current world leadership keep their collective 'heads in the sand' and refuse to identify and acknowledge what is going on before their very eyes, then "what can go wrong?"

Today, unlike in the 1930's, we have a whole host of Mr. Chamberlains, not just one. And, the failed mantra continues, "Peace in our time."

I just posted this somewhere else:

Everyone seems to forget that we should also strip the Israeli Arabs of their citizenship and we certainly shouldn’t ever give citizenship to the ones on Yosh.

Was I not PC? :(
