Seven Pillars of Paranoia

Michael Oren is a contributing editor to Azure magazine. (Yes, that's right, Azure magazine, spiritual home of Benjamin "C**t" Kerstein, who is its Assistant Editor.) That renowned lover of liberty and democracy Benjamin Netanyahu has just appointed him (Oren, not Kerstein) as Israel's ambassador to the USA. How delightful. Not that Oren is paranoid or anything.

In that article, Oren says "Israel, the Jewish State, is predicated on a decisive and stable Jewish majority of at least 70 percent. Any lower than that and Israel will have to decide between being a Jewish state and a democratic state."

Oh, I think it already made that decision.

That Oren piece is truly bizarre.

Israel does not assert its sovereignty over large sections of its territory and over major sectors of its population. In East Jerusalem, a few hundred yards from where Israeli building codes are strictly enforced in West Jerusalem, Arabs have illegally built hundreds of houses, many of them in historic areas, with impunity.What a difference a few hundred yards make. ("In West Berlin, a few hundred yards from where socialist planning regulations are strictly enforced...")

But then there's this:

Israel fails to apply its laws not only to segments of its Arab population but to significant parts of its Jewish community as well. Over 100 outposts have been established illegally in the West BankWe had noticed. But by this logic, applying Israeli law (including planning law) to East Jerusalem would itself be illegal.
