Calling all Zionists, Hamas, and Muslim Brotherhood Supporters

For the Zionists:

There's a large world out there, with people every where with different beliefs. Having said this... what is the end-game, after securing a Jewish state and all the Jews return to the homeland... what next?

The argument that I hear often is that it is to escape discrimination and persecution, essentially liberating the whole of the Jewish people. If this is the case... what? You think that some imaginary boarders are going to protect yourselves from this? It doesn't matter how large you build your walls, or how strong you military is... you will not become untouchable, you will not escape persecution.

What happens when some individuals renounce and want to remain? Then they are unable to play a role in government?
That's only going to work for so long until enough individuals refuse to leave as it is now their homeland.

For the Hamas supporters:

You are labeled as being terrorists and if the doctrine you adhere to allows you to use children as shields and to fight your wars via asymmetric warfare tactics, you will never be liberated and free from persecution. You think you're going to take Israel by force using these tactics and the free world is going to sit and let it happen?

In late 2006, Ismail Haniyeh, the political leader of Hamas, said that if a Palestinian state was formed within the 1967 lines, Hamas was willing to declare a truce that could last as long as 20 years, and stated that Hamas will never recognize the "usurper Zionist government" and will continue "jihad-like movement until the liberation of Jerusalem"

Just like Zionism, your doctrines will fail you... the world will only progressively push away from your tribal, ill advised tactics that truly are not conducive towards any form of liberation.

I figure grouping Palestinians and the Muslim Brotherhood, it's the same story as Hamas and essentially the same story as Zionism. Same rational applies...

So, how am I wrong?

How could you possibly ever win, even if you eliminate one another? You will never remove 'none' believers from the world and your actions are not conducive towards your secured liberation, ever, no matter how powerful you think you may become... or no matter how secluded you try to be.

The world is moving in a direction that is not the same as yours. Governments must be tolerant of religions, you fail.

You think you're going to take Israel by force using these tactics and the free world is going to sit and let it happen?

The free world sit back and let it happen. Amazing we call ourselves the free world yet when Israel keep persecuting and oppressing the Palestinians, we turn a blind eye to it and people wonder why rockets keep crossing that imaginary line. But wait a minute, we will certainly stick our noses in when it comes to Syria, Libya or even Iran. Two sets of rules for two different groups of countries, what a joke..

Framing the situation in Israel as a problem of moral relativism is a common trope that does more to obfuscate than illuminate. Historically, Zionism is one of the oldest cultures on the planet. Long before it took on its political aspect, the Jewish communities in the diaspora held on to the memory of the brutal expulsion at the hands of the Romans in 70 c.e., followed almost 70 years later by the Bar Kokhba rebellion against Roman imperialism and tyranny.

Emperor Hadrian was so angry at the rebellious Jews who came close to achieving independence that he erased all maps, changing the traditional name of the land from Judea to Syria-Palestina (later shortened to Palestine). The remnants of the Jewish system of government, the Sanhedrin, remained active up until the year 425 c.e.

While the Sanhedrin was effectively destroyed as an institution in Palestine (formerly Judea), it was never erased from Jewish memory. The desire to re-establish the Temple system remained a primary focus of Jewish practice and was the foundation upon which political Zionism built its efforts.

Few scholars acknowledge a simple fact - the system of government described in the Torah is actually a Republic, not a theocracy. This fact has been obscured by the harsh realities of the diaspora and the consequent growth of a form of Judaism that was unknown in ancient times.

By the time of the first wave of Islamic conquest, when Christianity had barely established itself, Jews living in Palestine (formerly Judea) were spread out over the entire region. Indeed, as Islam spread, it did so first by conquering Jewish towns, eliminating all males from the age of puberty and up, and taking the women for wives and concubines.

Of course, the Muslims also confiscated all valuables and property and instituted harsh rules forbidding true equality for Jews and other non-Muslims (dhimmitude). It's within this frame that an objective analysis should be based.

From the beginning of political Zionism, the consensus was that a system of government must be created that would extend basic legal rights to everyone. Marxist Zionism ended up dominating the political movement, but the Capitalist Zionists (Jabotinsky, Begin) remained an important influence. While the Jewish state was intended as the national home for the Jewish people, this was not because of a doctrine of apartheid. Under Torah law (and Rabbinic law), every person who appears before a court has equal standing; no preference is given to Jews and no penalties apply to non-Jews. In Israel today, a Muslim can take a case to the Rabbinic courts. They can "win" their case, providing the facts support their claims. This is not true in Islamic sharia courts. Jews, other non-Muslims, and women are not on equal standing in these courts. In modern Israel, Muslims, Christians, radical atheists, and other non-Jewish individuals can (and do) sit in the Knesset, serve as judges (even in the Supreme Court), own property and businesses, and so forth. Again, this is not the case in Jordan, Egypt, Saudia Arabia, and most other Muslim-dominated countries.

Simply put, looking at the situation as a matter of two groups of idiots going at each other for no logical reason is a grotesque distortion of history and law. It's a simplistic view that satisfies the ideological purposes of those who propose it, but it does nothing to address the actual situation. The truth isn't a balancing act. One side has more evidence to support their claim than the other. Conclusions about our struggle to survive in the Jewish State depend on the prejudices one has when looking at Zionism and Islamic jihad organizations.

The uncomfortable fact is that by adopting a "middle of the road" and "all parties are equally guilty" stance, you end up privileging the groups whose ideology will never accommodate notions of equality and tolerance.
