The latest display of Israeli contempt for non-Jews

Imagine this: You want to move to a new town but before you can do so, you’ll have to submit an application to a committee that has to approve admission of new residents. And not just that — you can be excluded for the simple reason that in the committee’s opinion, you wouldn’t fit in. “Sorry, you’re not the kind of person suitable to live in our town.”

That will be the effect of a new law now moving through Israel’s parliament, and once enacted it will be used to keep Israeli Palestinians out of Jewish towns.

Haaretz reports:

The Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on Wednesday unanimously approved a bill which gives the right to absorption committees of small communities in Israel to reject candidates if they do not meet specific criteria.

The bill has sparked wide condemnation and many believe it to be discriminatory and racist, since it allows communities to reject residents if they do no meet the criteria of “suitability to the community’s fundamental outlook”, which in effect enables them to reject candidates based on sex, religion, and socioeconomic status.

The bill is due to be presented before the Knesset plenum in the coming weeks.

Israeli Arab MKs were outraged by the proposal and walked out on the committee’s discussion of it.

MK Talab al-Sana (United Arab List – Ta’al) called the bill racist and said it was meant to prevent Arabs from joining Israeli towns. MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List – Ta’al) compared the bill to racist laws in Europe during World War Two, and the two told the committee members before leaving the hall: “We will not cooperate with this criminal law – you have crossed the line.”

The committee’s chairman, David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteinu), responded to claims the bill was meant to reject Arabs from joining Israeli towns. “In my opinion, every Jewish town needs at least one Arab. What would happen if my refrigerator stopped working on a Saturday?”

Rotem’s disdainful comment is strongly reminiscent of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s recent claim: “Goyim were born only to serve us.” The sense of invulnerability these men exude as bigotry slides off their tongues, goes beyond arrogance. It amounts to a scathing contempt for humanity.

    So, American politicians are acting just like Chamberlain before WWII, believing the Germans could be satisfied! The Israeli’s will never be satisfied until they fulfill their prophecy of becoming full fledged martyr’s, then and only then, can the World get on with bringing peace to the middle east.

    If the world had no Israel it would have to invent one. How else could the innocent people of the 21st century understand the degree of hatred Europeans felt for Jews, that they could create the situation where the horrors of the Holocaust could be carried out, if there were no racist Zionists to show them?
    Don’t forget that history often repeats itself. Think twice, Israelis, lest innocents yet to be born are not the ultimate victims of your own policies. Come back to your sanity and your old values before you find yourselves without friends.

    The trouble with a kept whore over they years is that after 62 years of putting on weight, losing any sexual attraction and pleasant disposition she may have once had, she begins to look, smell and act as something disgusting even if they doesn’t realize it. So what is the argument for keeping her in the high-life to which they are accustomed, especially as her sugar daddy falls on rather hard times while her presence is more annoying than arousing?
