British Academics Betray Israel

“Our age” wrote Julien Benda in 1927 in La Trahison des clercs “is indeed the age of the intellectual organization of political hatreds.” The newest example of this organized hatred is the Conference to be held in the UK between April 17 and 19, 2015 under the auspices of the Southampton Law School. The given title is “International Law and the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Responsibility, and Exceptionalism.”

The title betrays the underlying animosity behind the conference: the existence of Israel, now in its 66th year, is something to be discussed and, for many of the participants, ended.

    I will pay heed to the legitimacy of this conference when they also hold seminars on “Ending the Turkish Occupation of Cyprus” and “Ending the British Occupation of Las Malvinas” Until then it’s anti-semitism plain and simple.

    The Committee to herp derp at the University of Akbar doesn’t really matter.

    Israel holds legitimacy on at least three accounts:

    . Judicial legitimacy through the UN Resolution 181 of 1947.
    . Historical legitimacy based on the account of solid historical, prehistorical, and genetic evidence.
    . Military & geopolitical legitimacy through continuous right of conquest against seemingly insurmountable odds.

    What we have here is a classic example of anti-zionism in that it seeks to precisely undermine the Jews’ right to live in their own homeland, and furthermore a textbook case of antisemitism given its’ obvious intention to eliminate the sole Jewish state on Earth for the establishment of a 23rd Arab-Islamic backwater.

    At the end of the day, what the Sudeten Germans were to the Third Reich, ‘Palestinians’ are to the Arab World: another appendage of an aggressively territorial, uprooting, culturical entity which is the legacy of over fourteen centuries of imperialistic theft, rape, murder, and genocide.

    ‘Palestine’ has been, is, and always will be; a product of the same Empire and colonialism these left-wing crazies seethingly loathe so much.
    Syria-Palaestina was but a name meant to eradicate the presence of the Judeans from the annals of recorded history, much in the same way future empires dealt with places like Acadia (Nova Scotia), Poland (Generalgouvernement), the Falklands/Malvinas, Elsaß (Alsace), Gau Westland (Netherlands)…and eventually Judea & Samaria (the “West Bank”).

    Their task amounts to denying an extremely old, pluri-millenial people’s right to regain their place amongst the nations on the short-sighted premise that Israel is a novel and random entity.
    By the same token, China’s multi-millenial Sinic civilisation (which is as old as the Israelite civilisation) requires dismantling on the grounds that the Chicom regime is around the same age: in fact it would make much more sense to undermine Communist China’s legitimacy given the enormous damage on China’s cultural background left by Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

    But we’ll never see that for we all know these ‘intellectual’ fanatics admire the Cultural Revolution, which absolves China from any questioning in their book. Hence their support for a similar, albeit bloodier, “Cultural Revolution” in Israel. You see, age & legitimacy ultimately doesn’t matter a jolt to these criminals: anything dignified, ancient and precious is considered ‘reactionary’ by these abstract minds.

    Last, but not least, the old Jewish people need no lesson from a random country that almost committed democratic suicide in Scotland last Autumn.
