I have been giving lectures for many years. Not only about my stories and books, but also a lot about Israel. I often participate in forums. The difference with giving a lecture and being a forum member is that with a lecture you are the center of attention and in a forum you share the attention with other members of the forum. Often these are pro-Palestinian activists, with whom I like to have a conversation, who often start with my favorite questions: Where was the state of Palestine? What was the capital, Who was the head of state. What were the limits? Currency?
Usually after the first few questions I am called a propaganda distributor. Especially when I say that I do not think “Middle East Crisis” is an accurate description of what we have been experiencing for so long in our region: a crisis is a difficult situation, but in a crisis, no one is normally threatened with death. We have been threatened with death for nearly 100 years. Terror took tens of thousands of lives. When you’re bombarded with rockets, stabbed with knives, schools, hotels and restaurants get blown up, people rammed with wagons – all because we’re Jewish – no, that’s not a crisis. That’s a death threat.
And history has taught us to take those things very seriously.
And then came 2020. An American president, laughed at for his unpolitical attitude, someone with a vocabulary of maybe 600 words, goes to our neighbors and asks how much it would cost to end that nonsense for good. And slowly but surely it turns out that the whole secret to a quiet Middle East is business and not political bullshit.
Go on, all politicians on their hind legs, because this is not possible, hey: someone who will interfere with the world order created by so many politicians without protocol. World politics is Matsen’s game: you help me, I help you and the well-being of the public is unimportant. In politics you can lie and not keep your word, everyone understands that politics works like that. In business you have to break your word once and you are done quickly.
Suddenly, there are Arab countries that no longer want to embargo Israel. Who see no use in repeating lies, that make no sense. Who want to work with us to see what we can achieve together. Arab leaders wonder where that Palestine ever was. And where all that money they’ve sent went to. Arab leaders who speak out in public against the Palestinian Authority and wonder why they keep asking for money, why they are already creating the fourth generation with refugee status, when no one is on the run.
Abbas and comrades like Saeb Erekat have already secured their money. Their money? Just stolen from the various subsidies. In front of the cameras, they accuse anyone who no longer wants to believe their fairy tale of treason.
More and more Islamic countries are in contact with us. Secretly at first, but gradually everyone comes into the limelight and says that it has been nice: there must be a Palestinian State immediately, but not based on those strange stories.
Abbas and his 40 robbers have their hands in their hair: people in the Palestinian street have also become aware that they have been sold excuses for years and that the entire Palestinian narrative rests on untruths.
Fortunately, they still have the Netherlands: a traditionally anti-Semitic government allows demonstrations where you can still spread lies. Even in Amsterdam, once the Mokum of us Jews, you can stand on Dam Square and say that we are committing genocide. And you don’t have to prove anything, because the stupid girl that Amsterdam is allowed to lead (not because of personal talent or a personally impressive resume – no, just, she knew some people) loves fake.
More and more stores have a problem with Israeli products. It wouldn’t be politically correct to sell terrorist products. Thanks to the Corona, we are all flying a little less now, but, as I wrote before, Israelis are going on vacation to the Emirates soon. That will take a number of years and hopefully it will affect the number of Israelis who go on vacation to Europe: if we want to hear Arabic, we no longer have to go to Europe.
I suspect that Abbas and his 40 robbers will one day live in the Netherlands.
The only country that still eagerly buys its madness.
The only country where anti-Semitism is widely imported, repackaged and re-exported.
