Sometimes I read something that is so on-target and illuminating that I want to say “stop what you are doing and read this now!

Fiamma Nirenstein is an Italian journalist who was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in 2008 and was Vice President of the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

She has just announced that she is leaving politics and making aliyahto Israel.

She wrote the piece below in 2003. You can substitute ‘Netanyahu’ for ‘Sharon’ and she could have written it yesterday.

It is a bit long, but if you never read anything else that I suggest, please read this:

How I became an ‘unconscious fascist’
By Fiamma Nirenstein

In 1967 I was a young communist, like most Italian youngsters. Bored by my rebellious behavior my family sent me to a Kibbutz in the upper Galilee, Neot Mordechai. I was quite satisfied there, the kibbutz used to give some money every month to the Vietcong. When the Six Day War began, Moshe Dayan spoke on the radio to announce it. I asked: “What is he saying?” and the comrades of Neot answered: “Shtuyot,” silly things. During the war I took children to shelters; I dug trenches, and learned some simple shooting and acts of self defense. We continued working in the orchards, but were quick to identify the incoming Mig-im and the outgoing Mirage-im, chasing one another in the sky of the Golan Heights.

When will the State of Israel decide the Palestinian Arabs are a hostile enemy and treat them as such?

Sandra Korn

The fact that she chooses a boycott of Israeli universities as an example of a just limitation of academic freedom is a perfect example of the defect in her approach.

Israel is an independent sovereign state, and it should not be treated as a banana republic.

The survival of the state requires control of Judea/Samaria and a primarily Jewish population without hostile elements.

Unfortunately, some people are still in the dark about the significance of this, and similar acts.

This is not a post that I wanted to write, though I knew it was coming.

The U.S. government is tacitly agreeing that the historical truth about the Jews and Israel is inimical to “peace.”

Peres chose the uranium because Israel needed it to survive.
