Before you read Spritzler's seminal article it is worth considering, same as I had to, that the world may not be that small, after all...

Yesterday, I posted a harrowing article about the village of Iqrith, in Palestine, that has been wiped out by the Zionists eager to create facts on the ground i.e. on internationally disputed land, that is!

None of my 69 "friends" on Zuckerberg's Egg-on-Your-Face Book, irrelevant gossip network commented despite the fact that many of them are fellow researchers, some even anthropologists, at one of the alleged top universities in Romania, while others are Palestinians or have Palestinian friends.

It was sad to see how none of these community members, albeit virtual, had anything to say while at the same time Radovan Karadzic is being tried in the Hague http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8617152.stm for the pursuit of exactly the same goals that led to the al-Nakba i.e. the creation of the Israeli state in 1948 and, since 1967, to the creation of "Greater Israel": namely, ethnic purity!...

Also, in case of any attempts at the "long jump to conclusions" via some off-key cry of "Holocaust denier", it should be noted, for the record, that no such inference has ever been made here while on the question regarding the comparison with other genocides, I fully agree with Yehuda Bauer's conclusions, drawn in The rethinking of the Holocaust (New Haven, CT [etc.]: Yale University Press, 2001), pp. 44-50, re-published in http://www.annefrank.org/content.asp?PID=577&LID=1.

All that, however, ought to remain consigned to humanity's shameful past, and should not be used nowadays by people pursuing other utopian agendas, such as Zionist or al-Qaida's cultist practitioners who seem capable of imposing them on the rest of the world: free-thinkers and religious people alike.

Consequently, I fully concord with two of the world's most brilliant minds, Albert Einstein and Amos Oz on this question:

"I would much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state." (Albert Einstein, in Ideas and Opinions, [Crown Publishers, New York, 1954], p. 190)

"A state cannot be Jewish, just as a chair or a bus cannot be Jewish...The state is no more than a tool, a tool that is efficient or a tool that is defective, a tool that is suitable or a tool that is undesirable. And this tool must belong to all its citizens -- Jews, Moslems, Christians...The concept of a 'Jewish State' is nothing other than a snare." (Amos Oz, Israel's preeminent writer of fiction, in "A Laden Wagon and an Empty Wagon? Reflections on the Culture of Israel," Free Judaism, October 1997, p. 5 [Hebrew], cited by Yoram Hazony in The Jewish State, pg. 338)
