Israel: A True Nation of Immigrants
Jewish Israelis comprised 6% of the world’s Jewish population in 1948, and 41% in 2007 (it is presently 38%). In any other context except for what’s happening in what-majority countries—itself driven in no small part by Jewish influence—this would be called ethnic cleansing. In the British Government's 1920 Interim Report on the Civil Administration of Palestine, a full 80% of the region was Arab; that percentage had declined to 68% by 1948 per the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine. The Jewish population grew from 806,000 in May 15, 1948 (Independence Day) to five million by the year 2000. As of 2014, the Jews in Israel proper, using Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics estimates, numbered 6,218,000. Between 1948 and 2007, 62% of the overall population growth resulted from natural increase, and 38% resulted from migration balance – including changes in the size of the population due to changes in national borders. The growth of the Arab population had and has been wholly organic, pace Yehoshuah Porath:
As all the research by historian Fares Abdul Rahim and geographers of modern Palestine shows, the Arab population began to grow again in the middle of the nineteenth century. That growth resulted from a new factor: the demographic revolution. Until the 1850s there was no "natural" increase of the population, but this began to change when modern medical treatment was introduced and modern hospitals were established, both by the Ottoman authorities and by the foreign Christian missionaries. The number of births remained steady but infant mortality decreased. This was the main reason for Arab population growth. ... No one would doubt that some migrant workers came to Palestine from Syria and Trans-Jordan and remained there. But one has to add to this that there were migrations in the opposite direction as well. For example, a tradition developed in Hebron to go to study and work in Cairo, with the result that a permanent community of Hebronites had been living in Cairo since the fifteenth century. Trans-Jordan exported unskilled casual labor to Palestine; but before 1948 its civil service attracted a good many educated Palestinian Arabs who did not find work in Palestine itself. Demographically speaking, however, neither movement of population was significant in comparison to the decisive factor of natural increase.
The post-World War II period saw a large influx of Jews entering Palestine, with a high-watermark in the late-1940s at close to a quarter-million individuals a year. The first Jewish settlers to arrive in any appreciable numbers came from Russia and were privately financed by Edmond de Rothschild, whom the Balfour Declaration was addressed to. Using population estimates from Sergio DellaPergola, we learn the following:
Between the 2nd and the 6th centuries, during the Byzantine period, the majority of population [of modern-day Israel] was Christian. With the rise of Islam, after the 7th century a Muslim majority emerged. This lasted through 1947, when out of an estimated total population of about 2 million, close to 1.2 million (60%) were Muslims, about 650,000 (32%) were Jewish and about 150,000 (7%) were Christian… In modern times Jewish population patterns in Israel were crucially affected by large scale and initially very heterogeneous immigration. At the root of Jewish population trends in Israel stands the transition of immigrant Jews from being part of a multitude of communities representing small minorities in the respective countries of residence, to forming the majority of the state of Israel's total population. Complex processes of absorption in a new societal context, and growing sociodemographic homogenization were foreshadowed by the prescriptive societal goals of the ingathering of the exiles and the fusion of the diasporas. In actual experience, large-scale immigration and absorption involved a large amount of social friction, the accumulation of social gaps, and occasionally the exploitation of conflicts of interests by political agents that thrived on these problems (Schmelz, DellaPergola, Avner, 1991). At the same time, the Jewish diaspora continued to constitute a potential source of Jewish population growth and - at least in the prevailing normative ethos of Israeli society - it belonged to a broad perception of Jewish peoplehood transcending geographical boundaries.
Using DellaPergola’s population figures, Jews ceased to be a majority in Israel/Palestine shortly after the time of Christ (owing, no doubt, to their ceaseless provocations toward and rebellions against the Roman Empire); in 1533, there were a mere 5,000 Jews in Palestine, less than Christians and multiples less than Moslems. That number was even lower in 1690, at 2,000. In 1800, there were just 7,000 Jews in Palestine. The numbers then begin to quickly rise before exploding in the late 19th-to-mid-20th century. From 84,000 in 1922 to 175,000 in 1931 to 630,000 in 1947 to 1.9 million in 1960. In the period 1922-1931, according to the Palestinian census, 58% of the illegal immigration into Palestine was by Jews. According to Henry Laurens, from the time period 1936-1939, almost 70,000 Jews arrived in Palestine, 125 of whom were expelled for immigrating illegally. By contrast, 2,267 Arabs immigrated, and 1,704 were expelled. The Jewish population rate grew 531% between 1922 and 1944. Virtually all immigration into Palestine for the period 1920-1945 was by Jews; total immigration is estimated at 401,149, of which 367,845 were Jews. Why is this significant, you might ask? After all, America is a “proposition nation” per the Jewish Ben Wattenberg’s formulation, and “a nation of immigrants” to boot. Quoting Joe Sobran:
Modern Jewry violently resented the 1975 United Nations declaration (later rescinded) that Zionism is “a form of racism and racial discrimination,” but that is what Jews would rightly call any state based on similar laws consigning Jews to inferior status. Israeli laws on intermarriage and residence (92 per cent of the land of Israel is for Jewish residence only) recall Southern Jim Crow laws and Germany’s Nuremberg laws. But only a few bold critics have pointed out this double standard. Actually, it goes beyond normal double standards: it’s the application of standards that are directly opposite to those the modern, more or less “liberal” Jews insist on elsewhere. “Israel’s right to exist” really means the right of Jews to dominate non-Jews. That is the foundation — the virtual constitution — of the Jewish state, and Jewish courts have ruled that non-Jews may not claim the same rights as Jews. Under the “right of return,” any Jew in the world may “return” to Israel (even if none of his ancestors ever lived there) and immediately claim rights denied to Palestinians whose ancestors have lived there for untold centuries. Such facts, along with Israel’s heavy dependence on American aid, confirm the very stereotypes Jews constantly protest: of Jews as duplicitous “parasites” who recognize no moral obligations of Jews toward gentiles. So do Israeli espionage and technology theft against this country. The convicted spy Jonathan Pollard is widely celebrated as a national hero in Israel. And yet we are told, not only by Jews but by our own native prostitute politicians, that Israel is our “reliable ally” as well as a model of “democracy.”
It’s not. It’s an apartheid state and, as evidenced above, has been extremely antagonistic toward not just its nominal ally the United States, but virtually every other state in the region. It is also not a coincidence that the religious and ethnic-cleansing in the Middle East and North Africa has exploded since Jewish re-entry into the region: the Druze, Christians (including Coptics), Kurds, Yazidis, and other groups have been systemically eliminated while Israel expands territorially on the back of its aggressive Balkanization plan (the Yinon Plan). There is also the not-insignificant matter that their de-stabilization has contributed to the aggressive flow of “migrants” into Europe, also aided by Jewish NGOs and interest groups. Using the specter of the Holocaust to grease the wheels for a public and political guilt-trip, the anguished ages-old homelands of Europeans prostrated themselves before violent male “refugees” in a sickening slow suicide of pathological altruism and “economic benefit” with a visit from your local SWAT team if you object. Nevertheless, despite their aggression and hostility toward all Gentiles, we are treated to the eternal cry of the Jew as perpetual victim. Returning to Sobran:
In substituting Zionism for Judaism they have adopted a self-exalting modern nationalism, rejecting all criticism as “anti-Semitism.” The state of Israel practices every form of discrimination against non-Jews that secularized Jews reject when they are a minority anywhere else in the world. But this obvious fact is mentioned publicly at one’s own risk. The idea of the Chosen People is separated both from the Mosaic Law and from any sense of a transcendent mission to the goyim — “the nations.” And Zionist jingoism, forever casting Jews as innocent victims, has taken its toll on the ancient Jewish capacity for rigorous self-criticism. Just as gentile criticism of Jews has become “anti-Semitism,” Jewish self-criticism has become “self-hatred.”
Thus even the Western Jews who would align themselves with hereditary nationalists are cast out of favor and demonized by their far less scrupulous co-ethno-religionists who know no loyalty beyond their rigidly-defined in-group. At what cost to any other group—even fellow Jews—they don’t care, so long as their destiny to dominate a de-racinated and pliable planet of mongrelized idiots be realized.
