Israel: Predestined to demise

April 30th, 2015

By Khalid Amayreh in Occupied Palestine

With the usual fanfare and self-congratulating rhetoric, Israel last week celebrated the passage of 67 years since it was established in Palestine, with active support from colonialist western powers.

A passive observer watching the yearly rituals would probably get the impression that not only Palestine and its native people had never existed but that the very creation of the entire world coincided with the establishment of Israel.

The attempted obliteration of the Palestinian identity and narrative has long come to identify the collective Israeli ethos. Even simple names, which might remind new generations of days forgotten, or a history antithetical to the Zionist narrative, had to be obliterated and replaced with new names.


And just as Palestine became Israel, almost everything Palestinian became Israeli or Jewish-from the Palestinian Falafel to the characteristically Palestinian embroidery.

In short, there are no limits to the assault on history and on truth. But it is an assault based on lies and half-truths at best.

I am certain that Israel, as it stands today, doesn't have many many years to live. I know I can't produce irrefutable evidence corroborating my thesis.

I also know that many people will dismiss my views as an expression of "wishful thinking" and "day-dreaming."

To be sure, however, I would deserve these epithets if I were to rely on empirical logic alone since logical reasoning diametrically flies in the face of any suggestion that Israel will experience ultimate demise of an apocalyptic nature in a few decades. "That is too much," many people would justifiably say.

But apocalyptic events can occur unannounced, unexpected, and unpredicted. History is rife with instances of this nature. Who would have thought the former Soviet Union would come to an abrupt end?

Megalomania & arrogance of power

Watching Israeli behavior since I was a little child (I am now 58), I am inclined to believe that Israel will eventually meet an unannounced, unexpected and unpredicted demise. I don't when it will happen, but I am convinced, to the degree of certitude, that it will happen, and sooner than many people think.

Megalomania, which is defined as psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of power, relevance, omnipotence, and by inflated self-esteem, is conspicuous in the manner Israelis behave-whether cabinet ministers, army officers or Jewish settlers ganging up on unprotected Palestinian peasants on the hilltops of the West Bank.

Indeed, watching and reading the Israeli media these days, one would easily detect numerous expressions of this collective psychological disorder. The Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is by no means an unrepresentative representative of his people. He represents a culture that indoctrinates Jews with the false idea that they are the greatest of all mankind, not necessarily due to any purported moral excellence, but rather for merely being "Jewish."

Some Jewish sects, such as Chabad, teach Jews that that they are infinitely superior to the rest of mankind and that non-Jews are inherently inferior. Indeed, for many Jews, the very life of a non-Jewish person, a goy, has no sanctity whatsoever.

So, Israeli megalomania is just the other side of Israeli racism, a racism that transcends every conceivable aspect of life in Israel.

Israel already has a huge burden of a criminal history that keeps growing in size and nefariousness. This huge legacy keeps getting bigger and bigger in a country that has very little tolerance for looking inward, let alone for confessing its sins. But the confession of sins would be viewed as tantamount to the undoing of the state's moral fabric, whatever this is supposed to mean.

It is impossible for such a state to live very long, using the same old but extant tools of oppression, racism and criminality.

In Suratul Isra, one of the greatest chapters of the Quran, we read the following:

4. And We decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that indeed you would do mischief on the earth twice and you will become tyrants and extremely arrogant!

5. So, when the promise came for the first of the two, We sent against you slaves of Ours given to terrible warfare. They entered the very innermost parts of your homes. And it was a promise (completely) fulfilled.

6. Then We gave you once again, a return of victory over them. And We helped you with wealth and children and made you more numerous in man power.

7. (And We said): "If you do good, you do good for yourselves, and if you do evil (you do it) against yourselves." Then, when the second promise came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to make your faces sorrowful and to enter the mosque (of Jerusalem) as they had entered it before, and to destroy with utter destruction all that fell in their hands.

I know that the bulk of Zionist leaders, both in Israel and abroad, are either pseudo-religious or atheist outright. But this is another reason that would speed up Israel's demise.

I believe Israel is running toward its ineluctable fate, it can't run from it. And it is not going to be at the hands of the Palestinians or Arabs. It will be God, the Almighty, that will destroy Israel, a country that disregards God and embraces inequity. God would be unjust if He didn't destroy Israel. But God is Just and Israel is iniquitous.
