Thoughts on occupied Palestine
Why are supporters of the western pale known as Israel such hysterical mongs? Say what you like about their nearest relatives, the Rhodesians, at least the latter did not whine quite so much. Other than that they are cut from the same cloth, both colonialist shitholes, full of odious, ambitious types who went out to feather their nest at the expense of the locals. Both claimed a spurious historical legitimacy: the Rhodesians because Great Zimbwabwe was built by some lost European civilisation, and the Israelis because, well, the Bible says it, dunnit? Both were talking a load of old wank in other words.
The Exile doesn't comment much on matters Israeli, largely because pushing at an open door is no fun. The Arabs will solve the problem of the western settlement in their own good time, and it is highly unlikely that many people in the rest of the world will give anything other than a yawn.
Maybe this is why the supporters of Israel are so mongish? Deep down in their tums they know that the future of Israel is nil. The relative birthrates between Arabs and Europeans will see to that, all other things being even. However, the Arabs are demonstrating in Iraq - as they demonstrated in Lebanon - that the days of western military hegemony over Arabia are coming to an end.
Rhodesia lasted 90 years from start to finish: Israel has so far survived almost 60. What are the chances of it seeing the 90 that Rhodesia managed?
