How the Golan Was Stolen

Along the Syria border there were no farms and no refugee camps — there was only the Syrian army…The kibbutzim saw the good agricultural land …and they dreamed about it…They didn’t even try to hide their greed for the land…We would send a tractor to plow some area where it wasn’t possible to do anything, in the demilitarized area, and knew in advance that the Syrians would start to shoot. If they didn’t shoot, we would tell the tractor to advance further, until in the end the Syrians would get annoyed and shoot. And then we would use artillery and later the air force also, and that’s how it was…The Syrians, on the fourth day of the war, were not a threat to us.” — Moshe Dayan on pre-1967 clashes with the Syrians, in a 1976 interview with Rami Tal, as quoted in The New York Times and Associated Press reports (11 May 1997)

The Israelis have been doing this sort of thing forever now, going all the way back to 1932 or so. The Israelis wrote the book on ethnic cleansing. This is why I have always felt that Israel is a fascist or even a Nazi state (assuming these particular Nazis are Judeophiles and not Judeophobes). Ethnic nationalism will not be the salvation of the Jews!

  1. Totally unrelated (sorry to pollute such a serious issue with Rick Dyer): I have indeed received my “After the Shot” DVD!!! With a nice message from Team tracker…Anyway, I have no time to watch it before the weekend. But as I probably can expect little more than some odd camping scenes and no other additional material not known so far, I can wait “this long”…
