Things Only a Trempistit, Israeli Hitchhiker, Would Know

The numbers of Arabs in Jerusalem aren't totally accurate, because many who hold legal residence don't actually live there.

A very large portion of my traveling and commuting to and from home is as a trempistit, hitchhiker.  I live in Shiloh, which is in Israel according to our taxes, laws, voting rights, history etc.  But because of a strange perverse quirk in Israeli thinking, Shiloh and other Judea, Samaria and Jordan Valley towns, villages and cities aren’t considered “Israel proper.” That’s because Israeli is still pursuing the failed policy/ideology that claims that it’s possible to make peace with the Arabs by giving it the Land Israel won/liberated in the 1967 Six Days War.

The fact, undeniable fact, that the Arab goal in that war of their aggression against us was to totally destroy us is completely ignored by the Israeli policymakers. Almost fifty years have passed since the war the so-called “Liberal-Leftists” are totally reactionary in their thinking.  It’s beyond any semblance of logic and intelligence, but even after half a century of failure, they haven’t given up their dangerous and illogical belief.

Since I’m 100% totally against any semblance of a “two state solution,” I clicked the Algemeiner article that mentioned a “one state solution.”  It quoted a Guardian article that claimed that 30% of Jerusalem citizens are Arabs.

The Guardian editorial continues:

But this year, for the first time ever, there is a Palestinian candidate [Arab Israeli] Fuad Saliman…[who] is running as a part of an Israeli coalition of left-wing parties. Given that Palestinians make up well over a third of the city’s population, their participation in the political process could transform a political landscape.

So, what is the Guardian’s interest in increasing Palestinian voter strength? It becomes apparent in the following paragraphs:

As a thought experiment, however, it is fascinating. Extrapolating from the local situation in Jerusalem, what if all Palestinians made a strategic decision to seek full voting rights within the reality that is Israel, rather than demanding a separate Palestinian state? In other words, what if they transformed their struggle from a nationalist one into a civil rights one?

Here’s my comment:

The numbers of Arabs in Jerusalem aren’t totally accurate, because many who hold legal residence don’t actually live there.  They live in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.  They keep the official residence/address so they and their children can have Israeli papers, license, ID.

One of my big proofs to this comment is the massive amount of Arabs driving the roads near me with Israeli license plates.  When I’m waiting for a ride, I can’t just signal any car that’s approaching. And I certainly won’t get in just any car that stops.  It’s generally accepted that Jews and Arabs wait in different spots, so that Jews stop for Jews and Arabs stop for Arabs.

If all of those driving cars with Israeli licenses were Jewish, we’d have an easier and safer time.  Their are two very simple reasons that Arabs drive cars that look Jewish.

  • The Jewish cars are stolen.  A very high percentage, according to police statistics, are that if a Jewish car is stolen, it has been stolen by an Arab.  That includes cars with Israeli stickers to make it easier, G-d forbid, for them to kidnap Jews or simply drive into “Israel proper” without having to show identification.
  • The Arab is an official resident of Israel, frequently with one of the multistory buildings of questionably safe building methods in “east Jerusalem.”  They and their family have Israeli papers but live in nice rural/suburban homes in villages all over Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.

The algemeiner article by Adam Levick  brings up a very important point:

…Palestinian residents of Jerusalem would prefer – in the event a Palestinian state were created resulting in a divided Jerusalem – to remain citizens or residents of Israel…

This is something I also understand from my conversations with Arabs I meet at work in Yafiz, Sha’ar Binyamin.  The last thing most Arabs here really want is to be citizens of an Arab country.  They prefer Israeli conditions, freedom and justice.
