Zionism: An Exercise in Self-fulfilling Your own Prophecy – by Michael Lagan

Zionism – An Exercise in Self-fulfilling Your own Prophesy.


There’s a problem with Zionism in that at its most basic foundation, unless you’re waiting for a spectral being to come and give you someone else’s land, you’re going to have to do it yourself…which is what Israel has been doing, supposedly on behalf of the Jewish population worldwide for generations.


Zionism is a movement for, originally, the establishment, and now the development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel but was historically known as Palestine. It was established as a political organization in 1897 under Theodor Herzl. It’s a nationalist movement that emerged in Europe in the 19th century to enable the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people in Palestine, a region roughly corresponding to the Land of Israel in Jewish tradition.


The problem for Zionism is, the Jewish population was devastated by the Holocaust of World War II, which saw the global population fall from its peak of 16.7 million in 1939 to fewer than 11 million by the end of the war. Current totals vary widely depending upon the specific definition of “Jewish” in use, and there are many. If counting only Orthodox Jews, the total shrinks considerably, however, it expands greatly if the tally includes people of Jewish ethnicity who don’t actively practice the religion.


There is also the small issue of the fact many within the Jewish faith do not actually believe in Zionism, do not see the state of Israel as the homeland of the Jews, and are happy to live out their lives in the knowledge they are not partaking in genocide to self-fulfil a prophesy which has been extended to dictate that the Jewish population of the world require a Jewish homeland, which has been further extended by some radical rabbis to the point many Israeli Jews now believe they will quite literally ‘rule the world’ as God’s chosen people (who ironically, are carrying out a genocide).


Many quote Isaiah chapter 2 (apologies for getting into the religious stuff), where – “Gods Law will be sent out from Zion to all nations” and Zechariah 8:23 “In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you,”.  However, if God is so gracious and kind, why then would he pick such a hate filled, genocidal people to be his chosen?  Just a thought!


Zionism is very much a PR exercise above all else and a very dangerous one at that.  It seeks something and manipulates, quite literally, the entire world in a bid to bring about that which it seeks.  Surely, as God’s chosen people God himself will give the Jewish people of the world the Israeli home state as their own.  I’d like that in writing, please! But until then surely the only way for hardline Jews to bring about a real Jewish home-state is to self-fulfil that prophesy going so far as to deny the right of return which is a principle in international law that guarantees everyone’s right of voluntary return to, or re-entry to, their country of origin or of citizenship. The right of return is part of the broader human rights concept, Freedom of Movement and is also related to the legal concept of nationality.


So how can Zionism claim Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people if in The Geneva Conventions of 1949, recently modern international law, the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3236 “reaffirms also the inalienable right of the Palestinians to return to their homes and property from which they have been displaced and uprooted, and calls for their return”.  So logically, looking at history itself, the ancestry of the Palestinian people lies within Israel, once known as Palestine and have a right to that land even as recently as 1949.


No other religious sect on earth has a ‘home-state’, realistically, it wouldn’t be permitted by anyone, yet Zionist Jews hold that very privilege.  There can be no doubt that the holocaust was a savage, disgusting attempt to wipe out an entire people from the face of the earth but one thing this earth and its people must begin to counter, is Israel’s historical and continued use of that very holocaust to justify genocide and human rights violations.  Right now Israel with the support of world governments, though that number is dwindling, is carrying out its own holocaust on the Palestinian Arab population of Gaza.  


It has taken at least 33,500 Palestinians to be killed by the Israeli army in Gaza since the start of the war on October 7th and many thousands more injured for the world to see what is happening, and it is pushed on by Zionism with some in the Knesset calling for a Hiroshima style event to wipe out the Palestinian people.  On a stretch of land 25 miles long and 7.5 miles wide, 33,500 humans have died and only now world governments start to move.  Jewish auctions in the US started to auction off pieces of land on the Gaza Strip in secret auctions in a bid to move even more illegal settlements into the Gaza Strip and while the world looked on in disbelief at what was happening on the Gaza Strip, Israel was taking aim at the West Bank and moving Palestinian families out of it and into Gaza.


Zionism is an issue for the world, not just for Palestinians.  No other religion on earth has the hold Zionist Judaism has on world government.  That sounds like a conspiracy theorist in overdrive but it is proven that Israel has a hold over the world that no one else has which is why Israel can literally carry out a genocide and the likes of America and the UK look on and allow it.  The problem for Zionism is that many Jews now are refusing to fight for the IDF to expand Israel, refusing to acknowledge Israel as the land of the home-state of the Jews and are actively campaigning against it.  People need to start working out how to combat Zionism because it has more of a hold over our governments than we do…and we pay their wages.
