A Memeorandum thread on the anti-Israel "Seattle Middle East Awareness Campaign," featuring Israpundit.

This is interesting:
If the Arabs succeed in wiping Israel off the map, they will not be punished by any Nuremberg court or any other agency; the only punishment they fear involves the consequences of failure. These consequences were not sufficiently severe in 1948, 1956, or 1967 to act as a deterrent. The other side of this coin is, however, that Israel can probably get away with simply removing the Palestinians in a relatively humane matter.

As an example, Israel could pack the Palestinians onto ships with whatever they can carry on their backs plus some money in the currency of whatever country to which they are to be sent. A “reverse Gaza flotilla” could drop them off in Turkey, which seems to like them and would doubtlessly be happy to accept a couple of hundred thousand of them. Saudi Arabia should be more than willing to extend Arab hospitality to another few hundred thousand fellow Muslims, and so on. This would remove the open sore that Israel’s enemies are currently using to bleed it dry, and are using an excuse for violence against Israel–much as Hitler used the Sudeten Germans to justify his attacks on Czechoslovakia.

The bottom line is that the Athenians’ observation in Thucydides’ Melian Dialogue is correct: “You know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.” The fact that everybody knows about Athens while very few know about the Melians is yet another example of Hitler’s observation about the Armenians. Or, as a German proverb puts it, you must be either the hammer or the anvil; if you don’t do the beating, you will be beaten.

It is past time for Israel to become the hammer so it will no longer be the anvil. Israel must use its physical power to do what it can to protect its safety and security; the Palestinians, having chosen collectively to take the path of violence and hatred, will have to suffer what they must. If Israel fails in the basic duty of a sovereign state to protect its citizens and its own existence, a future Adolf Hitler may say, “Who remembers Israel?” and he will be just as correct as the original Hitler was about the Armenians. It is better that future historians say instead, “Who remembers the Palestinians?
And in case you missed it, Dave Swindle has the background on the Stop30Billion-Seattle campaign of hate: "Victory Over the Domestic Allies of Islamic Terror in Seattle!"

Israel could have, and should have, deported all of the Arabs in the lands in conquered in 1967, when there really weren't that many of them, annexed the territory, and created shortened, more defensible borders. More, it would have sent the message, strongly, that if you attack Israel and lose, you lose big time.

But by not doing so then, they really can't do it now. Now you are talking about a few million people, and it simply can't be done. The window of opportunity has closed.
