Gingrich: Will comments about Palestinians being an 'invented
help him if he happens to become president of he United States?
Newt Gingrich's 'Fervent' Wish: A 'Final Solution' for Palestinians
man, who accuses the excessively accommodating Mahmoud Abbas of being motivated
by an 'enormous desire' to destroy Israel, himself clearly displays a
compulsive desire to destroy all Palestinians, whose existence he doesn't recognize.
… it would be almost desirable for Mr. Gingrich to move into the White House. Perhaps
then we could dispense with play-acting at negotiations and America's sham patronage."
Palestinians are “a group of
terrorists” - an “invented people.” These are the words of Newt Gingrich, frontrunner
to win the Republican presidential nomination, speaking on Friday [video below].
It was a message of rare racist clarity. The man who could become the next
president of the United States is clearly in favor of a final solution through
liquidation of the Palestinians.
This man, who accuses the excessively
accommodating Mahmoud Abbas of being motivated by an “enormous desire” to
destroy Israel, himself clearly displays a compulsive desire to destroy all Palestinians,
whose existence he doesn’t recognize. Because, according to this great luminary,
it is part of a massive Arab-Islamic plot that transformed this “group of
terrorists” into a people.
Barack Obama, who for
electoral reasons has groveled before the Israel lobby in Washington, will no
doubt discover that this matter could seriously escalate - perhaps to the point
where the lies essential to American diplomacy are laid bare. But at least Newt
Gingrich’s comments have the merit of being clear and frank. They plainly
correspond with the opinions of a significant section of the American
establishment. Gingrich says President Obama and his administration “are
delusional.” But he’s wrong. When it comes to the Palestinian question, the aim
of Obama and his administration like many of those that preceded them and will follow
when they're gone, is to generate a continuous stream of illusion. And they do
a pretty good job of it.
In fact, it is the Arab
states in the region and the Palestinians who have been “deluding themselves” at
least since the Oslo
Accords, about the likelihood that there could be a shift in the U.S.
position from blind support for Israel to that of “godfather” of peace. If Gingrich
should take charge in Washington, the situation for Palestinians wouldn’t
fundamentally change, even if one could forecast a new war on Gaza and an
acceleration of the ethno-religious cleansing being carried out by the state of
Israel. There should be no kidding ourselves: this is just a question of
In a certain sense, it would
be almost desirable for Mr. Gingrich to move into the White House. Perhaps then
we could dispense with play-acting at negotiations and America's sham patronage.
And above all, the Arab regimes that currently choose to leave finding a
solution to the Palestinian question in Washington’s hands would no longer have
an alibi. Gingrich, with his racist arrogance and his ardent desire for a
“final solution,” would no longer provide them with one.
Many look with astonishment at
the Arab League - some with approval others with great caution - as it becomes
“active” in relation to the domestic struggles taking place in some Arab
countries. The League played a “decisive role” in Libya and is currently
exerting considerable pressure on the "autistic" Syrian regime.
So we wait with interest, to
see what the organisation would do faced with a U.S. government headed by
Gingrich or a politician holding similar views, and whi states that Palestinians
don’t exist - and saying, for example, that they're just an invention of the
Arab League. With Gingrich in power and his simple, absolute beliefs, Arab
leaders would have no more excuses. They would be left totally exposed.
