Ce site est dédié aux millions d'Européens qui, malgré d'incessantes campagnes de désinformation, ne croient pas que les Juifs ne sont capables que du pire; ne dissimulent pas leur antisémitisme dans le langage de l'antisionisme; et savent qu'Israël représente ce qu'il y a de meilleur dans une démocratie.

Les Juifs sont-ils les "nettoyeurs ethniques" les plus incompétents du monde?
- La population palestinienne en Cisjordanie est passée de 462.000 in 1949 à plus de 2,5 millions actuellement. - A Gaza, la population est passée de 82.000 in 1949 à 1,7 million aujourd'hui.
De surcroît il convient d'évoquer le contexte plus vaste de la région: - Le nombre d'Arabes tués (depuis1920) dans les guerres arabo-israéliennes est inférieur à celui des Arabes tués par des Arabes en Syrie (seulement) depuis2011. Par ailleurs, selon l'ONU, en Irak, dont on parle peu, la violence a atteint des sommets au mois de juillet: 1.507 morts et 2.326 blessés. (NYT)
Extraits: ... the charge the Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians is not at all marginal.
Of course, debating the “question” of whether Israel is conducting a war of extermination against the Palestinians seems at first glance to be as productive as ‘arguing’ whether or not Jews are trying to take over the world. However, unlike the latter charge, which, no matter how hateful and irrational, is not really quantifiable, the former malicious smear – reflecting the “Israel as the new Nazis“ narrative which Richard Landes argues indicates (among other political pathologies) a desire to be freed from Holocaust guilt – can be easily refuted by a few population statistics. - The Palestinian population in the West Bank increased from 462,000 in 1949 to more than 2.5 million today. - In Gaza, the population increased from 82,000 in 1949 to 1.7 million today.
Additionally, to add further context: -The number of Arabs killed (since1920) in Arab-Israeli wars is less than the number of Arabs killed by Arabs in Syria alone since2011.
As a point of reference, the Jewish population of Gaza and Palestinian controlled West Bank is practically zero (save afew pro-Palestinian “journalists” who reside there), while the Jewish population in the entire Arab Middle East has decreased from over 850,000 in 1949 toless than 5,000 today. (Yet, relatedly, despite the almost complete disappearance of Jewish inhabitants in territories they control, Palestinianand Arab leaders continually incite their population to engage in mass murder against Jews in Israel and the diaspora.)
The broad charge that Jews are ethnically cleansing Arabs (Palestinians or otherwise) in the Middle East, based on the numbers, represents the opposite of the truth. In the territory where Jews rule or have ruled in some manner since 1948 the Arab population has increased dramatically, while territories in the region where Arabs rule (representing over 99% of the total land) have slowly become either nearly or completely Judenrein.
I don’t expect the commenter at our blog to be moved by such dry statistics, but you’d at least hope that those who fancy themselves “sophisticated” Europeans – especially given their ‘special’ history – would at least take notice when empirical data contradicts their secular faith in Jews’ immutable malevolence.
Those suggesting that Israel is conducting “a war of extermination against the Palestinians” are engaging an almost comical historical inversion, and at the very least would have to conclude in the face of the evidence that Jews are, by far, the most incompetent practitioners of “ethnic cleansing” on the planet.
