The Ethnocracy of it all!

Israel’s decision to make all goyim wanting citizenship within its undefined and ever-expanding borders swear an oath of allegiance is one step closer to realising the return of the Kingdom of David. An Ethnocracy is a form of government where government officials of a particular ethnic group (Jews) hold a number of government posts disproportionately large to the percentage of the total population in order to advance their position at the detriment of others (Palestinians).

This definition defines Israel’s governmental system perfectly. As Israel sees its Zionist goal of reclaiming all of historic Palestine hindered by a demographic, “fifth-column” time-bomb which constitutes 20% of the population, it has pulled out all stops to further discriminate against the Bantustan-ghettoized Palestinian population. If anyone needed further clarification of Israel’s obvious supremacist legislation, one need only read from Haaretz commentator Gideon Levy: "Remember this day. It's the day Israel changes its character ... From now on, we will be living in a new, officially approved, ethnocratic, theocratic, nationalistic and racist country."

What is even more disturbing is this “pledge” requires applicants to swear an oath of allegiance to Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. A Jewish and democratic state? The fact that a government is ethnocratic negates any connection to democracy. And a law that forces an already discriminated ethnic group to pledge allegiance to a particular religion – Judaism – can only hold democracy in contempt. And remember, this oath is applicable to any non-Jew applying for naturalization not via the Law of Return.

The intended consequences? Sadly, the slow and painful death of Palestinian land, culture, identity and existence – in a homeland called Palestine. How can Israel ask a stateless people, whom they occupy, to say they have a right to exist when the Palestinians have no right to existence? Imagine a man stealing your car and saying, “I have a right to own and drive a car.” And you would say, “Yes you do, but not my car!” And the fact that Israel’s greatest benefactor has allowed this pillage, plunder and annexation to continue for 43 years defies belief. So get ready. The ethnocratic return of the Kingdom of David is nigh.
