All of their enemies are trying to exterminate every last Israeli Jew. The PLO was accused of this for decades.
Admittedly there was some overheated rhetoric. The Arabs said, “We will drive the Jews into the sea.” I think it mostly just meant pull guns on them and force them to go back to Europe where they all came from. The Arabs have definitely said this many times. I’ve heard them said it right in front of me, so it’s something they still do.
The man who said it was a member of the civilian apparatus of the PFLP. I was associated with some of these people for a while and got to know them pretty well. They eventually banned me as a “Zionist spy,” which figures. They’re very radical and paranoid. I was shocked at how extreme they were. They were overtly anti-Semitic too. Their beef didn’t just extend to Israelis. They also hated the Jewish religion.
In recent years, they have been milder.
Arafat, at an inopportune moment, said that the Arabs would simply move into Israel and live with the Jews, but they would commit guerrilla terrorism against them to slowly terrorize them and drive them out.
Sheik Yassin of Hamas said much the same thing, but he had an evil little smile as he said, “We will slowly kill them.”
Iran supports Arabs moving into Israel and Jews and Arabs living together.
I’m not sure what Hezbollah wants. They don’t want a 2-state solution but they said they would live with it and not say anything. The 2-solution is of course dead forever now due to Israel and getting more and more doomed all the time. The US has been secretly greenlighting all of this and Biden will continue to greenlight all the settlement building Israel wants. They will probably just let Israel take over the West Bank too.
Moderate elements of Hamas said similar things a while back.
I’m not sure what Islamic Jihad wants. I
The guys I knew at the base of the PFLP said they were going to throw the Jews out of Israel and “they can go back to Europe or Hymietown or whatever. We don’t care where they go.” However, the leadership of the PFLP such as Leila Faled has said that the PFLP officially says that all the Jews can stay. Faled is the famous counterculture airplane hijacker/hero of many US radicals in the 1960’s (many hippie women had photos of Leila Faled with an automatic weapon on their walls). She was the original badass chick.
ISIS says they are going to conquer Israel and kill all the Jews, but mostly they’ve just been working alongside of them. ISIS fighters have crossed the borders of Israel many times at the Golan Heights where they are treated for their injuries and returned.
Interviews with Palestinians on the street found few who wanted to throw the Jews out of Israel. Mostly they said that they wanted to move into Israel and live together with Jews. However, many Palestinians prefaced that by saying, “The Jews will be our guests.” As you can see, the Palestinians want the upper hand in Israel and it will no longer be a Jewish state in any way, shape, or form.
One thought on “Alt Left: Did the Arabs Ever Threaten to Drive the Jews into the Sea?”
Khadaffy wondered why the jews weren’t just given Alaska as a homeland. (Strangely enough, there are quite a few jews (not alot) in Alaska). The Quran commands that all non-believers (non muslims) must accept second-class citizenship in the society.
