LET'S IMPORT ISRAELIS BEFORE THERE AREN'T ANY!
By Alan Caruba
If the nuclear option is not used, the proxy armies of the Iranian puppet-masters will be employed, with Hezbollah attacking from Lebanon and Hamas attacking from Gaza. Israel is in a pincers between armed camps sworn to destroy it. In the past, it has been able to defeat its enemies. It may not be able to do so in the future.
Jerusalem has changed hands many times since the nation of Israel was established in 1321 B.C. Since King David founded it, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital for 3,300 years. There are some six million Jews living in the latest resurrection of Israel. They are, combined with all other Jews, a mere 0.02 percent of the world’s population, but Israel's Jews represent 40 percent of all the Jews in the world.
When the Jews declared Israel an independent nation-state on May 14, 1948, five Arab nations immediately attacked Israel. Offered a state of their own by the United Nations, local Arabs said no. For nearly six decades, Israel has never had a day of real peace.
In its quest for peace, Israel withdrew from southern Lebanon in 2000, only to be provoked to war by Hezbollah. Israelis lived under missile attack for more than a month earlier this year. Hamas’ Palestinians are arming themselves for war, despite Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza over a year ago and despite meaningless truces.
Over its short modern history, Israel’s primary support has come from the United States of America, but U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has been unequivocal in her support for a two-state solution, despite the failure of that effort. U.S. administrations have strong-armed Israeli and Palestinian leaders to sign agreements, none of which were kept by the latter.
I have a suggestion. Let’s import Israel’s Jews. Let’s offer them all passage to America and a fast track to citizenship. The United States has absorbed an estimated twelve to twenty million illegal Mexican, Caribbean, and South American aliens with hardly a whimper. Why not six million of the most talented people in the world, one of the highest concentrations of brainpower to be found anywhere?
Yes, this means abandoning Israel to the Arabs, but Israel is so small the entire landmass could sink into Lake Michigan and never been seen again. In one stroke, America would have defused the socalled “reason” that the Middle East is in such turmoil.
Consider how America would benefit.
In 2004, two Israelis received the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for having discovered a process that will lead the way to DNA repair. Jews have won more Nobel Prizes than any other group.
Most of the Windows computer operating systems were developed by Microsoft’s Israeli center. The Pentium NMX Chip technology was designed at Intel’s center in Israel. Same, too, for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ, developed in 1996 by four young Israelis. Cell phone technology was developed in Israel by Motorola’s center.
Israel has the highest ratio of university degrees per capita than any other nation in the world. It produces more scientific papers per capita as well and, except for the U.S.A., its people file more patents on new inventions and processes than any other nation. Similarly, per capita, it publishes more new books.
In Psalm 137, the author asks, “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?” Exile from Israel, however, has been a repeated factor in the long history of the Jews.
Psalm 137 continues:
Nice poetry, but bad policy. It is very bad policy, if Israel’s Jews want to survive this decade, let alone this century. In the last century, their neighbors in Europe facilitated the slaughter of six million Jews in Nazi death camps.
By importing Israel’s Jews, America will have a people who will not fly planes into our skyscrapers, not gun down our school children, not blow up teenagers in discothèques or commit suicide to kill strangers in restaurants, on buses and trains. They will not kill people attending weddings and funerals.
Jews love peace so much they greet each other with the Hebrew word for it, “shalom.”
As experienced as Jews are with an exodus or an exile, Israel’s Jews are likely to fight any invader. Or they will die in their ancient homeland from a malevolent nuclear attack. Either way, it will be the world’s loss, but few will see it that way.
In the words of the great Jewish sage, Rabbi Hillel, “If not now, when?”
