Exodus countdown from Israel

A beleaguered land which has been usurped and populated by the Zionist Jews for decades is now on the brink of being evacuated of its occupants.

The ‘land of milk and honey’ has turned into that of bitter gall for the Israelis who no longer seek solace and security in a country which is inching towards instability and insecurity on a daily basis. The Israeli people live in constant fear; they no longer believe in their authorities if they ever did; their hopes are broken; their dreams are shattered. It is now time for them to give back the dreams they have long stolen from the Palestinian people.

A recent report carried by AP reveals that increasing fear and angst among the Israelis has pushed them to scramble for their European passports so they can have an immediate escape path once Israel is engulfed by insurmountable crisis. Despite enjoying a world-class technology and a mighty army and the support of the US government as its staunch ally, Israel suffers from an internal crisis which is incapacitating it to a degree beyond measure.  In recent months, many Israeli citizens have requested and obtained European passports from Germany and Poland, ironically the two countries which the Jews say to have been home to the Nazi extermination camps where millions of Jews are fallaciously believed to have been killed. Pundits in favor of the Israeli policies have taken recourse to an oversimplification of the issue and argued that an EU passport gives the holder the chance to travel and work in the entire union of 27 nations but the fear for a stable future is the main concern.

Moti Alberstein, a 36-year-old doctoral student in biochemistry who just received Polish citizenship tells AP that “it’s good to have an escape path. Life in this country entails so much uncertainty that there is this need to have some security. That’s why people are drawn to this.”

There are more than 1 million immigrants who arrived in Israel from Russia, Ukraine, and other countries of the former Soviet Union since the collapse of communist rule some decades ago. According to the governmental Jewish Agency in charge of immigration, a large majority of them still retain their original passports. A report by the immigration office in Poland suggests that it has issued 12,800 passports to Israelis from the Warsaw district since 2004, namely when Poland joined the European Union. Poland says it issues 2,000 passports for Israelis every year. These reports clearly portend what the future has in store for Israel.

The crisis manifested itself in the recent rallies held across the country in the form of tent protest in which the Israeli protesters set up tents in the streets and voiced their opposition to the corrupt Israeli policies and inefficiency. However, the protesters began dismantling tent camps on Sunday, leaving only some tents to be used as the movement’s meeting places for strategy sessions.

Yuval Bedolach, a representative of Israel’s student union, says, “The tents were in some way a symbol, and we had to choose a very particular date to take them down. The tents were merely sheets and pegs; the people inside are what is important — the people who were at the rally yesterday and will be there next week as well."

An estimated 500,000 thousand Israelis swept to the streets on Saturday in what some observers believe was the biggest protest ever in the country to bargain for their basic rights and better living conditions.  Social justice was the main demand of the protesters. The massive protests which hit most of the cities in Israel particular Tel Aviv and Jerusalem can be but seen as a sign of a gradual deterioration of the social system and an intellectual wakening  in those who have started to taste the bitterness of  injustice.  The protest which was initially meant to keep politicians and political parties aloof attracted many of them; inter alia, Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni of the centrist Kadima Party who on her Facebook page urged Israelis to attend the protests. 

Crisis is crippling Israel both at home and abroad. The Zionist regime faces yet another challenge to cope with. The Palestinian Authority is planning to apply for statehood at the UN. The request, which has not yet been officially handed in, has garnered great support from many countries around the world.

During a ministerial meeting in the Serbian capital city, Belgrade, on Tuesday, the 120 Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) member states unanimously voiced their full support for a bid to be offered at the United Nations seeking the recognition of a Palestinian statehood in September on the basis of the borders of the June 4, 1967 with East al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr who chaired the meeting said during a press conference, "We will continue to support the Palestinian endeavors during the 66th session of the General Assembly for the recognition of the State of Palestine on the basis of the borders of the 4th of June 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital, and to seek its admission as a full member in the United Nations."

This is certainly no good news to the Israeli regime which is more than ever before sustaining internal and external crisis. Considering the effect the recognition of Palestine (even if the decision of the UN’s General Assembly is vetoed by the US) can exercise on the foreign policies of Israel and the crisis which is now eating away at the heart of the regime, it seems that the political days of Israel are numbered and that the future of the Zionist regime is hanging by a thin thread.

With these two backbreaking crises, there is no doubt Israel is going through one of its worst periods in the entire history of its occupation and colonization and there does not seem to be a way out of this predicament. 

The winds of change have already begun to blow and shaken the very pillars of the Zionist apparat.
