Useless Ceasfires And The Tragedy Of The Unter-Menschen
August 3, 2006
Does anyone think anymore- really, really think? A very good argument can be made that thinking, is a rare commodity, indeed. Oh sure, you have plenty of self esteem trophies, but hey, we all know self esteem doesn’t take much actual thought.
Now, pay attention, stop feeling and start thinking.
As the UN, Organization of Islamic States and other assorted idiots wail and beat their chests, demanding a ceasefire, no one seems to to be paying attention to pesky reality.
Hizbollah announced it will have no part in any ceasefire, until all Israeli troops have left Lebanon. That means that they will never participate in any ceasfire, for two reasons.
First, Hizbollah, like their Iranian and Syrian benefactors, like the idea of attacking the Jewish state, because in the process, they kill Jews. That is after, the stated raison d’etre.
The second reason Hizbollah will never adhere to a ceasefire is because of a bit of land called the ‘Shebaa Farms.’ The Shebaa Farms are a part of Syria that was captured in the 1967 Six Day War.
In May of 2000, the Israeli pullout of Lebanon was certified as complete. Hizbollah, created ostensibly as a ‘resistence’ force, no longer had a reason for being, a reason to maintain stockpiles of arms or a reason to maintain control of southern Lebanon.
It was at that point that Hizbollah decided that the Shebaa Farms were really a part of Lebanon. Never mind that the maps said otherwise, never mind that the UN and the entire world community recognized the Shebaa Farms area as a part of Syria. If Hizbollah, that terror and openly anti Semitic organization said the Shebaa Farms were ‘disputed’ territory, far be it from the UN and other bodies to say otherwise. As long as the Shebaa Farms were ‘disputed,’ Hizbollah could justify it’s sorry, miserable and cowardly existence (hiding behind women and children is sorry, miserable and cowardly. We just wanted to clear that up for anyone who’s feelings might have been hurt).
Hizbollah will not agree to a ceasefire because in their opinion, Israel is occupying ‘disputed’ territory- and they need a reason to continue killing Jews. Now, before you puff out your chests with self esteemed indignation, recall this: The vast majority of Hizbollah attacks have been on civilians and not on the Israeli military. The thousands of katyusha rockets fired into Israel (before the current conflict) were aimed at civilian targets. In fact, the katyusha rockets are designed to inflict damage on civilian targets. Is this starting to sink in?
The second reason Hizbollah doesn’t want a ceasefire is twofold. First, that would mean a cessation in their stated efforts to kill Jews. Secondly, they are basking in the spotlight of Arab world hero worship- they are killing Jews- and what higher calling can there be than that? They are heroes.
That’s not an exaggeration or overstatement. In the Arab world, hatred of Jews is taught, encouraged and rewarded- and that is why a ceasefire is meaningless. The hate, racism and radicalization of Arabs is nothing more than basic training for the next generation of terrorists. The deliberate and concerted effort to make anti Semitism a fundamental and basic tenet of Arab identity is a sickness- a deliberate attempt by dysfunctional political and religious leaders to create a lesser person, someone incapable of thinking for themselves and incapable of controlling their own destiny. These regimes, use religion to create a citizen they can easily control and manipulate.
Adolph Hitler wanted to create the uber-mensch- the ‘super-man.’ It is becoming more and more apparent that the Arab world has deliberately set out to create the unter mensch- the ‘lesser-man.’ The nations of these ‘unter-menschen’ have created an identity for them- victims. Not just any victims, but ‘special victims.’ Unlike the Jews that came out of Europe, these ‘special victims’ will never be create what the Jews created- and thus, they are even more ‘special victims.’ When you are a really ‘special victim,’ the rules don’t apply to you. The psychopathology becomes ‘understood’ and even, in a way, acceptable. That is what we are seeing now.
A ceasefire becomes irrelevant if it only provides a the time for reinforcements to be brought to the front- and that is exactly what will happen. That is not ‘analysis’ or ‘interpretation.’ Already we have seen radical Iranians are making their way to Lebanon to join Hizbollah in their fight. Legions of ‘special victims,’ all noble, will make their way to Lebanon in the same way they made their way to Iraq, to fight against an ideology that makes accountability a cultural and societal cornerstone, because accountability is antithetical to victimhood- and victimhood hides many sins.
Anyone who thinks ‘an immediate ceasfire’ will contribute to long term or permanent peace is an idiot. As long as the Arab world is determined to produce legions of unter-menschen, defined by victimhood and hate, the prospects for peace are non existent.
As the world attempts to turn reality on it’s head and blame the Israelis for the profound and spectacular dysfunctions and pathologies of the Arab world (it’s so much easier to blame people that have civilized sensibilties and conscience), it bears remembering the cost of that blindness. Hitler, Pol Pot, Rwanda, Darfur, Algeria and Sierra Leone are just a few examples of what happens when the band plays on.
