US College Sponsored Speakers: Israelis Kidnap, Torture Arab Children

Israel markets itself as a global leader in counter terrorism and counterinsurgency, but it can only do so, claim the Haverford College-sponsored speakers - because they use the "West Bank" and Gaza as labs and the Arabs as their lab rats

Efrati gets in the jeep where the father was placed, and goes with them where the father is “tied up for days at the entrance to the base.”  Finally Efrati asks his officer what is going to happen with the Arab man and the officer tells Efrati to release him.  You see the point? The arrest and the detention of the father was simply arbitrary.  Just like the Nazis did to Efrati’s great grandfather. Why Efrati never explained to his fellow soldiers that the father had done nothing wrong is not addressed.

THE REFUSENIK

The “refusenik” (yes, it is indeed insulting to call Israelis who refuse army service refuseniks when the term of course is used to refer to the Soviet Jews who were “refused” the ability to flee from the Soviet Union. This was pointed out at the end of the event, and the two Israelis claimed they never heard the term used for Soviet Jewry and didn’t mean respect, but really, there is a similarity, isn’t there? No.), Maya Wind, is an Israeli woman who, upon graduation from high school, refused to serve in the “occupation” army. She was part of the infamous Shministim, the refusers.

Although Wind occasionally finds a heartstring to pull, she isn’t the softy that Efrati is. Her grandparents were also Holocaust survivors, but they “built their socialist kibbutz, Nir David, on the ruins of Palestinian villages.”

Wind is the political and economic theorist, and more of a slogan slugger than her counterpart. While Efrati is a lovable lug who just wants everyone to be nice to each other, Wind is all about explaining the economic exploitation of everyone by the massive military industrial complex that is the state of Israel.

Wind provided a five point checklist “proving” the entire Israeli economy relies on the “Occupation.”

First, there is the economic exploitation of Palestinian labor. This includes the checkpoints and the menial jobs in Israel the Arabs are forced to take. Second, there is the exploitation of the Arab’s natural resources.  This is illustrated with slides of Israeli swimming pools juxtaposed with dessicated Arab fields.  None of the Gaza water parks or swimming pools of PA millionaire’s homes are shown for some reason.

Third,Wind ticks off, is the Israeli control of the Arab population. This refers back to the checkpoints, the security fence and the security forces. Fourth, is the massive weapons complex that is Israel.  Wind shared with the audience that Israel has the fourth largest military industry in the world – but it’s such a tiny country! Wind really got into the jargon on this one – the multinational corporations make millions of dollars, as do the Israeli contractors, amongst whom are the military elite and the “hundreds of thousands” of private security forces in Israel, some of which are exported internationally. Fifth is the military knowledge and expertise that is exported all over the world.

This last step is where the rhetoric really ratcheted up. You see, Wind explained, “for decades Israel has been marketing itself as a global leader in counter insurgency and counter terrorism.”

“But this would not be possible if we did not have our own private lab – the West Bank and Gaza – to try them [the weapons and tactics] on the Palestinians, and then sell them elsewhere.” And the elsewhere, she explains, is to a list of the world’s most brutal dictatorships.

“The Israeli military elites are literally making a killing off this economy,” Wind intones.

Get it?

CO-SPONSORED BY HAVERFORD, BUT FUNDRAISING FOR ANARCHIST FEDERATION ORGANIZATION

The event was co-sponsored by the Haverford Center for Peace and Global Citizenship and the college’s Students for Justice in Palestine.

The speakers were introduced by a member of the Haverford Students for Justice in Palestine.  In addition to providing background information on the two speakers, she also thanked the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship for its “financial and technical assistance.”

During the course of the evening the speakers asked for donations for their causes. That’s right, Haverford College – indirectly, but still – is raising funds for a radical leftist political organization known as Anarchists Against the Wall, a member of the International of Anarchist Federations.

The Center self-describes as a source of “innovative scholarship and responsible civic engagement around issues of global significance” by sponsoring and supporting a broad menu of programs.

    And rational human beings believe this tale of woe? Talk about poor or no education!!!!

  3. Ann Kennedy says:

    Muslim Arabs have perfected the art of lying about their enemies, real or imagined. They have no limits in their fabrications, and they pass the tradition down to their children.

  4. Larry A. Singleton says:

    Martin Kramer:
    Gaza is a place with no Israeli settlements, from which Israel has totally withdrawn to the 1967 lines, and which nonetheless has become a Hamas terror state. That’s what happens in conditions of Gazafication. So when people say that in a two-state solution, Palestinians would have a “right of return” to the West Bank and not Israel, I do not find that particularly reassuring either. Any influx of Palestinians across the Jordan poses a problem for Israel, and it is naive to dismiss it. I would like to hear how, in a two-state scenario, Gazafication of the West Bank can be prevented. I haven’t heard it yet.

    Neither have I.

    Read The Haj by Leon Uris. And ask these questions:

    What year did the nation of Palestine come into existance?
    What were its national borders and what year did it cease to exist?
    What currency did the nation of Palestine use and why is there no history of it?
    Name one leader to the “nation of Palestine” prior to Yasser Arafat.

  5. the head of these universities are suppose to be so intellectual and they fall for these stories?

  6. Tamar Alexander says:

    Jews live very nicely as minorities elsewhere,
    indeed very nicley until they were massacared in muslim countries as well. not forgetting they were 2nd rate citizents in countries like Iran. Not frogetting that out of 150,000 Jews in Iran there are less than 10,000 todaty, I guess all those that left didn;t agree with Wind.

  7. Rael Nidess says:

    Marucs' bio states she's a 'recovered lawyer'… I guess that means she's officially divorced herself from needing to deal with the truth of any given situation. Otherwise, her review would have been more praiseworthy of two young men who've shaken off the shackles of ethnosupremacy and now view themselves as citizens of the same world everyone else inhabits.

  8. Rael Nidess says:

    A classic example of projective identification…

  9. Rael Nidess says:

    Gee Yechiel, the Germans said the same of the Jews, the right-wingers here say the same thing about Hispanic immigrants, the Myanmar Buddhists say the same about the Rohingya Muslims… you sure keep interesting company.

  10. Rael Nidess says:

    Correction to prior: "two young people". Does Marcus have anything to offer beyond ad hominem attacks on those with whom she disagrees or is that how 'recovered lawyers' argue?
