For those who missed it in the news last week, yet another European organization has called for boycott, divestment and sanctions against the State of Israel. The usual canards about “apartheid”, “occupation”, “settlements” and “human rights” were duly trotted out.
This time it’s the association of Scottish trade unions. While they were at it, they also called for a “review” of their relationship with their fellow godless Communist parasites, the Histadrut. The Israelis, as usual, had the gall to act surprised. Histadrut officials made all kinds of outraged squawks about trade unionist solidarity. After all, why would their fellow trade unionists ban the Histadrut? The Histadrut is red to the bone, pro-“peace”, anti-“occupation” and as godless as they come. There is really very little difference between Israeli communists and Scottish communists. Except that the Israeli communists are still nominally Jews. With the usual dismay of the assimilated self-hating Hellenist, the Israelis again discovered that, as far as the Jew-haters are concerned, a kike is a kike is a kike, regardless of length of beard and payot.
In fact, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement is growing by leaps and bounds. European organizations are tripping one over the other to mouth platitudes in support of anti-Israel boycotts. In North America, the antisemitic campus freak show called “Israel Apartheid Week” has doubled the number of participating colleges and universities in just a single year. Comparisons with apartheid South Africa are growing routine. Even equations of Zionism with Nazism and calls to “de-countrify” Israel no longer raise eyebrows in polite company. If you are a leftist, hatred for Israel is de rigueur.
With the growth of Europe’s Moslem population, it is no longer a question of WHETHER Europeans will begin to participate in large-scale boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns. It is simply a question of WHEN. The only thing the dying European and his terrifying new Moslem neighbors have in common is Jew-hatred. Therefore, the European will embrace Jew-hatred with a vengeance. Europe’s media elites will do it for the money. European politicians will do it for the Moslem swing vote. The European public will do it because, deep down, they hate Jews just as much today as they did in 1933. And everyone will do it for fear of Islamic violence.
America is not far behind. Once the Europeans start boycotting Israel en masse, it will only take a few falsely outraged Hollywood celebrities spouting crocodile tears over photoshopped pictures of dead babies to bring the boycotts to American shores. America’s Jewish community, overwhelmingly leftist and Hellenist, will not stand in the way. At the end of the day, what matters to them is being popular with the “in crowd”. Once the discourse shifts from abstract notions like “peace” to concrete pictures of dead Arab children and loud celebrity whining about “human rights”, America’s Jewish community will drop Israel like a hot potato. Those few who do anything else will be silenced with accusations of dual loyalty. When asked to choose between “human rights” and Israel, American Jews will choose “human rights”. When asked to choose between America and the Holy Land, American Jews will choose America. When asked to choose between their personal comfort and the safety of other Jews far away, America’s Jews will choose personal comfort.
Israel’s leaders know all this. The prospect utterly terrifies them. Indeed, fear of boycotts, divestment and sanctions will soon rival fear and hatred of the dati Jew in the collective mind of the Israeli ruling elite. After all, Israel depends utterly on foreign trade and investment.
This is why Medinat Israel desperately needs Medinat Yehudah. Indeed, if given the option of Medinat Yehudah, the more intelligent sectors of Israel’s ruling elite will grasp it with the desperate grip of a drowning man at a lifeline. Israel can survive in the long term only by sheltering behind the shield that is Judah. Israel can only avoid the hatred of the goyim by using Judah as a lightning rod to draw their ire. The ire of the goyim can incinerate weakling Israel in an instant, but it will affect mighty Judah not at all. For while Medinat Israel can only respond to worldwide boycott, divestment and sanctions a-la apartheid South Africa with whining, panic and economic collapse, Medinat Yehudah will be able to safely respond to the same with a hearty laugh and the one-finger salute.
Unlike the luxury-addicted sushi-eaters of Tel Aviv, the Jews of Judah will not measure their success by the size of their bank accounts or the flashiness of their cars. The Israeli may want a country like all the goyim, but the true Jew wants Eretz Yisrael. If he has to tighten his belt to possess it, he will. But, for that matter, he will not have to tighten it that much. The Israeli fears the goy and thus obeys goyshe “law”. The Jew fears only Hashem. To the Jew, there is only one law – the Law of Hashem’s Holy Torah. Thus, while the Israeli will wither and die if the goyim don’t buy his high-tech trinkets, his software and his oranges, the Jew has plenty upon which to build his economy. There are plenty of things the goyim will buy from the Jews, sanctions or not. The most prominent of these things are:
Man has killed man since the beginning of time and will do so until the End of Days. Whether it be barbaric tribes in Africa, drug cartels in Latin America or rebels in Asia, someone will always want to buy arms. And that someone will pay hard cash for quality merchandise, no questions asked. Of necessity, Judah will have to be self-sufficient in arms. Of necessity, these arms will be top quality, battle-tested hardware. Of necessity, they will deliver excellent performance at a reasonable price. And therefore, there will always be a large market for Judah’s arms.
Who cares if the arms have to be shipped in containers marked “agricultural equipment” exported through the Israeli port of Haifa instead of through one of Judah’s ports? Who cares, for that matter, if they have to be shipped by submersible to a nighttime beach in Cyprus or to a quiet rendezvous at some random coordinate in the middle of the sea? These things are just part of doing business. Factor them into the price and have done. As long as the buyer pays cash, Judah will deliver.
Nor will Judah care to export merely small arms and basic equipment. You want the most modern battle command systems, missiles, tanks, aircraft? No need to settle for cheap North Korean junk built out of recycled sewer pipe with 1950s technology. Judah will provide. You want stable VX, bioengineered plague, ballistic missiles? No need to settle for no-fly Nodongs and substandard mustard gas anymore! Payment in bullion or diamonds only, please. You want a tactical nuke or two so the government of, say, Columbia will take your rebel-group-cum-drug-cartel seriously? Yields up to ten kilotons are available for qualified buyers. Bring cash up front. Judah will deal.
Yes, the missiles will not take coordinates within the territory of Judah. Yes, the nukes will not fit on a ballistic missile, will go off if someone tampers with the case and a series of appropriate safeguards will make them quite difficult to smuggle back into Judah’s own territory. But, in the end, none of this will matter. Judah will not care what bunch of goyim kills what other bunch of goyim in some part of the galut far, far away. All that Judah will care for is that the buyer is not Moslem and that there is cash on the barrel. There will be buyers in plenty for this kind of merchandise if it comes with no questions and no strings, regardless of what howls of outrage emanate from what goyshe government.
The goyim may hate our guts, but their addicts will buy our dope. The opium poppy will grow in the hills of Judah just as well as it grows in the mountains of Afghanistan. In fact, it will grow better, because the Jews of Judah will be better farmers with better gear than illiterate Afghani peasants. If the vineyards of the Golan cannot bring in money, let coca bushes replace the grape vines. If Teva factories cannot churn out cut-price aspirin, let them churn out cut-price heroin, oxycontin, ice, ecstasy and LSD. Located in fully modern pharmaceutical factories, Judah’s manufacturers will beat jungle labs and basement ice shops any day of the week, both on price and on quality and consistency of product. Rest assured that Europe’s mafiosi will not care whom they deal with to obtain the drugs they sell on Europe’s streets.
Judah is a stone’s throw away from the Mediterranean coast of Europe, with its myriad of bays, inlets and small islands. Smugglers and pirates have used that coast from time immemorial. Not the Romans and not the Ottomans and not even the Nazis could stop the smugglers from coming and going as they please. Today’s goyim will do no better than their ancestors. Let them chase speedboats and fiberglass submarines from Cartagena to Alexandroupoli and everywhere in between. They will catch one in a hundred, if they are lucky.
The Eastern Mediterranean is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. Tens of thousands of ships pass through the Suez Canal each year. They all have to funnel through the Eastern Mediterranean.
If private citizens based in Judah’s ports were to equip some fast private vessels with autocannon, missiles and torpedoes, the government of Judah certainly wouldn’t care. The right to keep and bear arms is, after all, a mark of true freedom. And if these same private citizens were to, let’s say, interfere with the shipping, the government of Judah could, regrettably, do nothing. And if goyshe warships were to attempt to stop these private citizens and some goyshe warships were destroyed in the process, Judah would not care. After all, the jurisdiction of Judah would not extend beyond territorial waters and, at any rate, Judah would not accept the testimony of hostile goyim in her courts.
If the goyim think that Somali ragamuffins with RPGs and rusty AKs are dangerous, let them see what real pirates can do. It has been some time since the Europeans had to deal with the pirate sultanates of the Barbary Coast. Judah would be happy to re-teach them their history lessons.
Of course, there would be insurance companies willing to secure those wishing to travel through the dangerous waters of the Eastern Mediterranean. Some of these companies would, in fact, experience remarkably low payout ratios in comparison with their competitors. Soon, these few companies would dominate the insurance business. Their rising dominance would coincide, quite strangely, with a substantial decrease in pirate attacks.
The Israeli State does not print its own currency. It’s just not cost effective for such a small country. Instead, the Israelis order their banknotes from South Korea. Judah, on the other hand, will not have such luxury. The Shekel Yehudah will be printed in Medinat Yehudah. And since one already has the typographic machines, why limit them to just one currency? If the goyim do not wish to trade with Judah, Judah would certainly have no qualms about destabilizing their economies while making money in the process. In fact, the less stable the goyshe economies become, the less money the goyim will have to finance their efforts to stop Judah’s other lines of foreign trade and the more pressure will build for an end to meaningful sanctions against Judah, if only to stem the flood of destabilizing counterfeit.
And while we are at it, let’s not forget that currency is not the only item that can be counterfeited. If goyshe states refuse to recognize Judah and refuse to do normal business with Judah, why should Judah respect their intellectual property laws? If it’s valuable, it can be copied. If it’s cost-effective to do so, the copies can be smuggled.
Across Asia and Africa, millions clamor to reach Europe’s golden shores. Many of these people will pay. Why should their money go elsewhere? Judah will provide covert transport to Europe if it’s cost-effective to do so. All the prospective immigrant to Europe would have to do is buy a tourist ticket to Israel, then enter Judah on a tourist visa. From there, it’s a question of money.
With a combination of arms proliferation, drug dealing, piracy, counterfeiting and people smuggling, Judah will not want for either hard currency or international opprobrium. And while the ire of the goyim is directed full force at Judah, Israel will be safe. Not only will the attention of the goyim be focused elsewhere, but the existence of a Torah Republic next door will provide a safety valve for Israel. Those wishing to live by Halacha in a Jewish State will see first hand the sacrifices required to do so. Those who decide to make the sacrifices will move to Judah, leaving Israel to the chilonim and the Israeli elite. It is for this reason, dear reader, that those among Israel’s ruling elite who have working brains will do everything in their power to bring about the rise of Medinat Yehudah the moment a majority of those who wear knitted kippot begin to seriously work toward the creation of such a state.
But won’t the goyim try to stop Judah? Won’t they sanction, bomb, even invade?
Indeed the goyim will try to destroy Medinat Yehudah. But their options against a true rogue state are limited. Sanctions will not work because Judah will already be under sanctions. Aerial bombing and invasion will not be attempted for fear that Judah’s revenge will come to the parks and cafes and shopping malls of those who sent the planes and the troops, in the form of small groups of determined young men and women wielding everything from pistols to poison gas and bioweapons. For that matter, as the capabilities of Judah’s armed forces grow, invasion by European and American forces will become less and less likely. America and Europe are paper tigers. They can stand neither the sight nor the smell of blood, especially when it’s THEIR blood. America has not invaded North Korea. It will not invade Judah.
What the goyim WILL do is arm the Moslem confrontation states in the hope that these will put paid to Judah and absorb all the damage while they are at it. But they will do this anyway. Judah will be stronger than the Moslem confrontation states or Judah will cease to exist. Therefore, the goyim can do NOTHING that they wouldn’t be doing ANYWAY, from the moment of Judah’s independence.
They will arm our enemies, protest our actions regardless of what we do, write nasty editorials in their newspapers and make assorted meaningless gestures. And, at the end of the day, they will negotiate. Judah will agree to limit her destabilizing activities in direct proportion to goyshe efforts to replace Judah’s income from these activities. When the goyim feel enough pain, they will agree to Judah’s terms.
In the meantime, Judah’s economy will do just fine. The towns and cities of Judah will be self-sufficient in food from the beginning because they have to be in order for Judah to achieve independence in the first place. Hard currency and strategic materials will come from “rogue” activities if they cannot be earned “legitimately”.
At the end of the day, Medinat Yehudah will become Queen of the Rogues, a nation armed to the teeth, apart from the world, ready to take on all comers at the drop of a hat and to inflict such a price for her life that no goyshe government could do anything but blanch and back off at the thought of paying it. As the goyshe sanctions regime falls apart under Judah’s relentless pressure, it will be Judah’s commodity-backed currency, the Torah-demanded “honest shekel” that will become Judah’s greatest asset. In a world of paper money, the Shekel Yehudah will be the one true “hard” currency. For unlike the Israeli piece of paper by the same name, every one of Judah’s shekels will be backed by a physical shekel of precious alloy hidden deep inside a Judean vault. Once sanctions are eased and bank contacts are made possible, the Shekel Yehudah will become the new Swiss Frank. And with it will come the most lucrative and the least violent of all “rogue” activities, the line of business that will sustain Judah long after piracy and drug smuggling and even arms dealing become undesirable as sources of income:
Across the world, bank privacy is crumbling. Even Switzerland is bowing to pressure from its neighbors. As of last month, the bank privacy law of 1934 is dust. Now, not only will the Swiss provide information on and freeze the accounts of those labeled “terrorists” and “money launderers” but even the ordinary Germans, Englishmen and Americans wishing to evade confiscatory taxation in their countries cannot use Swiss banks to do so. What this means is that there is now an opportunity that has been largely unavailable since a dirt-poor rogue state in the Alps stopped deriving most of its income from exporting mercenaries to fight in Europe’s wars. In an age of crowned heads and serfs, Switzerland was a confederacy of fiercely independent cantons full of free men willing to snatch up pike and halberd and turn out to defend their mountaintop homes at the drop of a hat. This meant that Switzerland was the one place where a man could keep his money safe from the long arm of his rapacious king, for no king’s authority reached there. And just as Switzerland stored Europe’s gold then, so Medinat Yehudah will store the world’s gold in the future.
When all is said and done and the struggle is over at last, Medinat Yehudah will become not a Jewish Iran or a Jewish North Korea, but a Jewish Switzerland.
