Israeli Arabs: Fathers and Sons and Daughters - 1981


Excerpts from: Israeli Arabs: Fathers and Sons (and Daughters)
Part 1

Israeli Arabs.  Fathers and sons-and increasingly daughters.  For the Israelis have liberated the Arab woman, too, in order that she may also vote for anti-Zionists and teach anti-Israel hatred.  Thus, when the prime minister’s office boasts that “the expansion of the educational system has helped to raise the standard of education of the younger generation of women” and “the fact that Arab women are coming into closer contact with the Jewish population is opening up new horizons,” one gropes for an explanation for the smug satisfaction.  The most that can be said for Israel’s liberal policy is that it has created a new generation of Jew haters with due care to ensure that the source of the hate is equal, with discrimination because of sex..

The generation of the fathers is dying destroyed by the Israeli government’s “head-and-stomach” policy.  The father is dead; long live the son and daughter, whom Israel created.  They will do their best to destroy the Jewish state, and, of course, the Jewish state will continue to produce them.  The first generation of Israeli Arab university graduates immediately produced the El Ard anti-Israeli movement in the 1960’s.

Indeed, even then there were those who saw and understood-and those who did, terrified by what they saw, put it out of mind.  In the Midstream magazine (December 1962) Nissim Rejwan, an Israeli writer, said: “One of the more alarming aspects of the Israeli problem is that the new generation of Israeli Arabs generally shows even less willingness, not to speak of eagerness, to accept the fact of Israel’s existence than do their fathers and grandfathers.  The so-called Arab ‘intelligentsia’ in Israel which seems to embrace every literate person from university graduates to those who finished a few secondary classes, are in the majority of cases swayed by the heady talk…about ‘settling scores with Israel.’  Many of them, it would appear, cannot reconcile themselves to their status as a minority in a Jewish state and keep hoping for some sort of savior. Was anyone listening?

The rise of the new generation of educated Israeli Arabs who did not know, the bitter taste of defeat and who openly moved toward confrontation with Zionism and the Jewishness of the state was itself given enormous impetus by the Six-Day-War.

Again, ironically, it was Jewish military victory that the Jews turned into yet another political defeat.  For the first time in nineteen years the Arabs were able to meet and talk with other Arabs who were not Israelis, who called themselves  “Palestinians,” and who openly spoke of the day when the hated Jews would leave.  The Israeli Arab suddenly, realized that he was neither meat nor milk, fish nor fowl.  He was not an Israeli, but now he was struck by the awesome realization that he had not been a “Palestinian” all those years either?  He was looked upon by the West Bank “Palestinians” as a traitor who cooperated with, and accepted, Israeli citizenship from the Jews who had stolen the land from his people.  In one fell swoop, all the factors that went into creating the new radical Israeli Arab came together.  Things could never be the same.

Not only were there new contacts with the West Bank “Palestinians,” but this was also the beginning of joint cooperation.  Thus, Israeli Arabs participated in a “Palestine Week” held in 1978 at the Universities of Bethlehem and Bir Zeit.  They helped organize it, and they printed and distributed a leaflet calling for the support of the PLO.  In defiance of the law several Israeli Arab students have begun studying in schools in the liberated territories.

The opening of the borders between the State of Israel and the liberated areas was seen by the incredibly obtuse Israelis as allowing the better-fed Israeli Arabs to demonstrate the benefits of Israeli occupation.  Of course, a child could have known that the exactly the opposite would occur.  The Israeli Arabs were suddenly given the opportunity to meet, regularly, with their own people who were struggling for what the Israeli Arab understood to be a common goal: freedom.

The mayor of Hebron, Fahd Kawasma, said (January 22, 1979): “The Israeli Arabs have remained foreigners and their lot remains ours. There is no possibility of blurring the fact that they and we are part of the same people, and the fact that they live in Israel does not make them less Palestinian.”

In his newspaper interview, Bir Zeit President Nasir added: “The destiny of the Arab College at Bir Zeit is to be the nucleus around which is built the Palestinian State.”  Indeed, the Arab students being trained in the Jewish universities of Israel see themselves in the same light.  They are the seed of the future “Palestine” leaders in the area of “Palestine conquered in 1948.”  They give leadership and examples to high school students and are the PLO leaders of tomorrow.

The irony is that the most extraordinary rise in the brazenness has taken place under the supposedly tough Begin government.  Maariv reporter Yosef Tzuriel commented on this as long ago as April 26, 1978.  “The rise of the Likud to power created a certain amount of tension in the first months among Arabs of Israel and the territories who expected a firmer policy against them. but after a short while it became clear that the new government was as liberal as its predecessor, if not more so.”

What is the real result of the millions of dollars poured into higher Arab education and the hundreds of millions spent on secondary (high school) training?  Consider:  In December 1979 the Progressive National Movement (PNM) won the election for control of the Arab Student Committee at Hebrew University.  In its platform the PNM called for:
·         acceptance of the Palestinian Covenant (which calls for the elimination of Israel)
·         the creation of a “democratic, secular Palestine” in place of Israel
·         acceptance pf terrorist activities as part of the Palestinian struggle for self-determination.
And indeed, in 1979, students and visitors at the university were startled to find mimeographed copies of the Palestinian National charter being distributed.

And should one have any doubt, the immensely frank interview with Mahmud
Muhareb would dispel all of them.  Muhareb, an Israeli Arab citizen of Lydda and at the time chairman of the Arab Student Committee at Hebrew University, presented his views to Maariv Israel’s largest newspaper (January 20, 1978): “We, the Arab students in the university, constitute and indivisible part of the Arab Palestinian nation, and we struggle in its service in order to achieve its goals.”

“As for me and my personal lot, I am first and foremost a Palestinian, resident of
Lydda. Israeli citizenship was forced upon me. I do not recognize it and do not see myself as belonging to the State of Israel.  The law requires me to carry an Israeli identity card and passport.  As a Palestinian, I would prefer Palestinian ones.”

There is nothing new or startling about this.  The signs of Arab intellectual hatred of
 Israel and deep desire for the dismantlement were obvious to all who wished to see.

The Temple Mount 1987

By Rabbi Meir Kahane, written in 1987

The Temple Mount
Once upon a time, in the exile, the Jews would decide every major step by the proposition:  What will the gentiles say.  Then they created Israel, where Jews would be sovereign and free….Laugh not, but rather weep for generations.
Jerusalem. Where the Palestinian autonomy and eventual state is being built.  Jerusalem, which mirrors so much of the other desecrations that fills the land. 

The Temple Mount is not in our hands.  East Jerusalem is not in our hands.  Judea and Samaria and Gaza and the Golan are not in our hands.  The Biblical Eretz Yisrael which we liberated through G-d’s decree in 1967, is not in our hands.

The Temple Mount is in their hands, the foxes, the cunning Arab foxes.  And the words of Motta Gur ring hollowly – and it is we who are to blame.  We took a miracle and disdained it.  We, who took holiness and profaned it.  We who were given a Zion, a Jerusalem, Temple Mount – and gave it over to the jackal-foxes.

He who controls the Temple Mount will control JerusalemAnd he who controls Jerusalem will control the Holy Land.  And the desecration of the Land and of G-d is inconceivable.


I have never been afraid of the Arabs; it is the Jews who terrify me.  The ultimate danger to Jews has never been the gentile; it is the Jews who have always been their own worst enemy.  And no Arab state or combination thereof can ever bring Israel to its knees.  To accomplish that, they must look to the enemy within, the Jews of self-hate, of cancerous guilt, the lemmings of Suicide Now.  To our bitter regret, there is no lack of these; the enemy is indeed within the gates, within the walls.


The hope is not yet lost – the hope of two thousand years, to be a free people in our own land…” (from the Israeli national anthem, “Hatikva’)

The following appeared as a letter to the editor in the Histradut labor newspaper Davar (June 30, 1986
“On June 19, we were waiting on line to see the doctor, some 30 of us.  An argument broke out between a young woman elegantly dressed and obviously well off, and an elderly man.  He quietly explained to her that it was his turn to see the doctor.  She began screaming at him and among the gems said: ‘I am an Arab; this land is mine and who needs you Jews here? Go back where you came from.’

“A large crowd gathered from all the departments – and, now, pay attention:  An Arab woman stands between perhaps 100 Jews in a Jewish institution waiting to see a Jewish doctor and shots.  Then she slapped the elderly Jew.  He wished to hit her back, but could not reach her.  She gave him a hard blow and sent him flying.  He lost consciousness, blood flowed from his head, and he was given oxygen and taken by ambulance to the hospital.  But, no one touched the Arab woman!  What would have happened if this had been a Jewish woman among Arabs?  The police came and she shouted:  I am not afraid of anyone, not you or the police….”

In the year 5707 –1948 by the gentile calendar that the Jews had lived under for so long-the dream was realized.  A Jewish State was declared in the Land of Israel.  A Jewish State!  No more fear, no more terror in the streets!  A Jewish State! Free and proud and a kingdom of Kings!    Hardly!

More attacks on Jews pre-Oslo years, can be found in “Uncomfortable Questions for Comfortable Jews,” Chapter 7 – The Dream

Selected Writings of Rabbi Meir Kahane,
Volume 6

Shchem – Where Is Shimon?  Where Is Levi?
“Shall he make of our sister a harlot?”
(Genesis 34: 31)

Some 3,500 years ago, an abomination was done to a Jew in Shchem.  Dinah, daughter of Jacob, was raped by Shchem, the son of Chamor.  Upon hearing of the obscenity, Dinah’s brothers – Shimon and Levi – went into the town and slew every male.

Last month, an abomination was done to a Jew in Shchem. A Jewish soldier was murdered when an Arab dropped a huge rock on his head from a rooftop.  Upon hearing of the obscenity, Dinah’s brothers – Chief of Staff Dan Shomron and the general in charge  of the Central command, Amram Mitzna – toured the scene of the murder, swore that the Arabs would pay “a high price” ( the exact words of Shomron were: “There is no doubt that we will react in this area in a way that will make it not worthwhile for local people to throw stones and the price will be heavy.  Every reaction is possible.  You will see this in the days to come”) – and then proceeded to blow up the upper roof of the building from which the rock was dropped and brick up windows overlooking the alley.

As they did so, Arabs in adjacent buildings whistled and shouted, “Allahu Akhbar, Allah is great,” and former Mayor Hafez Touquan said: “This has no deterrent effect whatsoever.”

The shame of Israel, the Hillul Hashem – desecration of the Name – lies in the fact that today there is no Shimon, there is no Levi.  There is only Dan Shomron who – as Chief of Staff, to our dishonor, and thus committed to crushing the intifada whose aim is to wipe out Israel – instead tells the news media that “the intifada cannot be defeated since it comes from nationalist roots.”  There is only Amram Mitzna, the disgrace of a soldier who, in the middle of the Lebanese war and following the Sabra and Satilla massacres of Arabs by Arabs, condemned the Israeli Defense Minister before a press conference in Beirut and then left his post and went home to his kibbutz, Ein Gav.  

What a “high price” the Arabs of Shchem have paid.  A roof, two houses blown up and windows bricked up and an area sealed – and the Arabs laughing and happily shouting Allah is great!  “High price.”  What a fraud, what a lie.  And how it typifies the entire government of deceit.  They have no policy, they have no answers.

Where is Shimon?  Where is Levi?  Where is the Jewish knowledge that an abomination against a Jew has been done here and it must be dealt with in the only way that the Jew-haters understand?  When Jacob heard of the act of Shimon and Levi he protested – not because it was immoral, as so many foolish Jews say, but – for practical reasons: He feared the retribution of the people of the land, saying, “You have brought trouble on me to make me odious among the inhabitants of the land … and I being few in number, they will gather themselves together against me, and slay me” (Genesis 34:30).  No, not a moral argument, for there was nothing immoral about the act of Shimon and Levi.  Jacob was simply afraid of the reaction of the gentiles around him.

And the reply of Shimon and Levi resounds throughout the ages: Shall he make of our sister a harlot?” And Jacob is silent.  There is no answer.  For his sons are right . . .

Hillul Hashem!  To defile a Jewess and treat her as a whore!  Such a thing cannot be even if there is danger, because in the case of national Hillul Hashem, danger is set aside.  And this was even when the Jews were a small minority in the midst of many gentiles.  Even then, the demand to wipe out Hillul Hashem transcended danger.  How much more so, when there is a State of Israel and an army that controls the city of Shchem!  And how much greater is the Hillul Hashem that we bring on ourselves by our humiliating refusal to do that which we should – wipe out the terror by killing the murderers and driving out all the rest.

And the Or HaChaim in his commentary goes further: “To the contrary, there will be danger for them among the nations; when the latter will see that one low person ruled over Jacob and did as his pleasure, then the Jews would not be able to survive among the nations.  And it is through this [the killing of the people of Shchem]  that fear of the Jews will be on the nations and they will tremble before them.”

Of course. It is only true punishment and a heavy hand of Jewish terror that is the way to terrify the nations who would otherwise wipe out Israel.  It is the way of Shimon and Levi that not only leads to the natural terror of the gentile but also to G-d’s approval: And the terror of G-d was on the cities that were round about them and they did not pursue the sons of Jacob” (Genesis 35:5).

What the pathetic and humiliating policy of Shomron and Mitzna and their employers – Rabin and Shamir and Arens – has done has been to lift terror from the Arabs and give them confidence and contempt for the Jews.  By this deadly and terrible policy, so couched in gentilized and Hellenized concepts of “morality” that is, in fact, repulsive murder, we guarantee the future blood of Jews.  Because there is no Shimon and Levi, the Arab is unafraid and he thus will murder more Jews tomorrow, secure in the knowledge that the pathetic kibbutznikim of the army and the Hellenized political leaders of Likud and Labor will speak loudly and then do nothing to crush the Arab.  It is the Arab who threw the rock that murdered the soldier but it is Shamir and Arens and Rabin and Shomron and Mitzna who are the accomplices.  Their Jewish hands are red and filthy with Jewish blood.

And finally, a comprehensive understanding of Shimon and Levi for those who claim that they sinned when they killed the people of Shchem and were therefore cursed by their father.

The fact is that their father (as mentioned above) never castigated them on moral grounds but only out of practical fear of the nations.  The fact is that they replied to him and he was silent, accepting their cry that no gentile could make of their sister a harlot.  The fact is that G-d did not punish them but, to the contrary brought terror on the gentiles around them.

And the fact is that when G-d commanded the tribes to choose special and distinctive flags that they would fly proudly as they camped and traveled in the desert, the Rabbis tell us (Bamidbar Rabbah 2): “Shimon [the tribe of Shimon] had a flag whose color was green and had drawn on it the city of Shchem.”

The city of Shchem?  This was the flag of Shimon as commanded by G-d?  This was what the ALL Mighty wished Shimon to wave on high for all to see?  No, hardly a sin, but rather, as in the commentary of the Maharzu: “Because of their bravery and self-sacrifice in Shchem.  And even though Levi was with him Shimon was the older and the main one.  And this [flag] is his praise for his zealousness against the abomination of immorality.”

And Maimonides explains the actions of Shimon and Levi (Hilchot Mlachim 9:14), and his words are brought down in the Ramban (Breishit 34:13):  “The sons of Noah are commanded to uphold laws . . . and because of this all the people of Shchem were worthy of death since Shchem stole [Dinah] and they saw it and knew of it and did not try him.”

And the Ramban gives his own reason as follows: For the sons of Jacob, since the people of Shchem were wicked people and blood for them was as water, wished to avenge themselves on them with an avenging sword.  And they killed the king and all his servants who were obedient to him.”

In any event, since it is clear that Shimon and Levi not only did not sin but, indeed, followed G-d’s law, why then did Jacob apparently, curse them when he said: “Instruments of violence are their swords.  Let my soul not come into their council . . . for in their anger they slew men, and in their self-will they uprooted an ox” (Genesis 49:6)

The answer is that, again, their actions against the people of Shchem, who had acquiesced in the abomination against Dinah, were totally justified.  And that is why Jacob, after first protesting and then hearing their reply, was silent and agreed.  But later, after learning that the same two sons had also intended to kill Joseph, and Shimon threw him into a pit that was teeming with snakes and scorpions (see Breishit Rabbah 84, and Rashi on Genesis 49:6. Who explains the words “And in their self-will they uprooted an ox.” As referring to Joseph who was symbolized as an ox in Deuteronomy 33:17. “The firstling of his herd grandeur is his, and his horns are like the horns of a wild ox”), he then realized that their motivation in all that they did was violence and anger for its own sake.  That is why they sinned – not because of the act itself but because their motivation was violent anger and this was manifested even against their own brother.  And so he cursed, not them but their anger and their self-will.

No, those who dare raise their hand in abomination against Israel, whether through rape of Dinah or murder of a soldier, have raised their hands against the people of G-d. Hence against the ALL Mighty Himself.  It is a Hillul Hashem that demands vengeance and punishment.  Shimon and Levi destroyed the desecrators, and forever did the flag of Shimon eternalize the act.

But there is no Shimon and Levi today.  There is only Shomron and Mitzna and Shamir and Arens – small people, unworthy to carry the flag of Sanctification.  Their pitiful reaction is worse than nothing.  It adds to the humiliation, to the Hillul Hashem.  It spits in the grave of the murdered soldier and guarantees that others will follow him

The casbah where the soldier was murdered should have been razed to the ground and all the inhabitants of the city told that blood is on their heads and to flee before the sword of Shimon and Levi returns.  Out!  Out of the land!  Shall our sister be as a harlot?  Shall our brother the soldier be as one whose blood is cheap?  We need a Shimon and Levi today.  We need a government in Israel that understands that this is precisely its role
