For the Jabotinsky Likudite government of Israel, the worst possible
scenario would be peace in the illegally occupied Palestinian territories, or
rather a form of submission that would pass for peace. Thus the election of
Hamas is a godsend for Zionist settlers who need a never-ending cycle of violence
in order to perpetuate their colonialist project of an Ashkenazi state planted
in the middle of the Islamic world. Now, with the war criminal Ariel Sharon
slumbering in a coma, the Israeli government has decided to crank up the heat,
using the so-called election of Hamas as an excuse.
“Israel today pulled the plug on its monthly tax payment to the Palestinian
Authority, cutting off a cash lifeline which will leave the interim government
unable to pay thousands of police and civil servants,” reports Times
Online. Of course, there is no such thing as an “interim government”
in the occupied territories, simply a capo operation, and the severing of this
“cash lifeline” will push a lot of folks employed by the Israeli
sanctioned and CIA trained capo services into the Hamas camp. Moreover, Hamas
provides desperately needed social services to thousands of Palestinians, services
that will become even more crucial as Israel puts an economic choke hold on
the territories. Of course, this embracing of Hamas by the Palestinians works
famously for the Jabotinsky Likudites, who would have us believe all Palestinians
are blood-thirsty suicide bombers.
As if one cue, Bush chimed in last night, “order[ing] Hamas to ‘recognize
Israel, disarm, reject terrorism, and work for lasting peace,’”
in other words, arrogantly demanding the inmates of the world’s largest
open-air prison end their ongoing resistance and accept the assigned status
of hewers of wood and drawers of water. Of course, this acquiescence will never
arrive, as exploited and oppressed people are wont to resist, and the Jabotinsky
Likudites know it.
The so-called election of Hamas is simply another step in the long
process of arranging the political deck in such a way as to make palatable the
eventual “transfer” (ethnic cleansing) of the Palestinians to their
“real home” in Jordan, a project well-documented in Zionist literature.
In the meantime, all Palestinians must be characterized as intransigent suicide
bombers, supporters of Hamas, unworthy of a “partnership” with Israeli
settlers who, after all, only want to get rid of them and take full possession
of the land supposedly designated to them by a genocidal Old Testament God.
