The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 0 comments
Neither Yom Hashoa or Yom Hazikaron are about fighting for a cause, nobody hopes to gain anything politically out of them they are simply about remembering the dead. Nakba day is about a cause and it is a cause that belongs only to the individuals who left their homes in a war started by arabs after rejecting a two state solution. Anybody who is under 63 cannot justifiably under international laws be called a refugee because you don't inherit refugee status. The palestinian thinking is just being descended from a refugee in your own right and it gives you a right of return to the homes abandoned 63 years ago. My grandparents lost their home when they escaped Austria during the war. I am not a refugee in my own right because they were, I have no right to return to Austria and live in their home. Its not my fight. Just same as anybody who was born after 1948 is not a refugee and its not their fight. UN resolution 194 demanding Israel to allow a right of return for the refugees and they define a refugee as someone whose home was in Palestine between 1946 - 1948. Neither the UN or any other body has ever defined the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of refugees as being refugees in their own right and doesn't say they have a right of return. Only they and the people who support their cause say they have a right of return. Nakba is an obsession and it won't end with a palestinian state its a cause in its own right that will end either when Israel grants a right of return or the arabs end their obsession with the nakba mentality. Its time to get the arabs to drop nakba not for the Jews to start mourning it as well. A good first step would be to get the UN to rescind resolution 194 it sends the message the world agrees with Israel on this one and there will be no right of return.
