israel's fabled ‘right to exist’
For close to 60 years, the state of israel has struggled fruitlessly to gain legitimacy among its Arab neighbors.
'Arabs must recognize israel's right to exist,' they insist.
The only problem is - that 'right' doesn't exist - and no amount of idle 'recognizing' in the world can change that reality.
Only human beings have a 'right to exist' - not institutions, or states, and certainly not corporations.
These entities only have privileges - which are granted by human beings or conversely withheld or dissolved.
Rights are God-given and unique to human beings. With rights come obligations that can neither be curtailed nor denied.
Privileges, on the other hand, are assigned by people, ideally for the benefit of everyone they effect.
In other words, institutions have the privilege to exist among human beings, for the express benefit of those human beings.
Therefore, when institutions act, it must be in a representative capacity for the purpose of enhancing and protecting human rights - otherwise, they are in conflict with those rights. There is no in between.
If a state or an institution does not exist to enhance and protect human rights but instead requires their annihilation in order to exist - then it is defacto illegitimate and human beings who are adversely affected by its actions have not only a right but a duty to defend themselves against its assault.
israel, by definition, is an illegitimate state, for its very foundation demands one group of people forfeit their right to exist in order for israel to realize its so-called 'right to exist' as a 'Jewish' state.
It will never happen - at least not legitimately.
It can only happen through fraud, corruption and brute force.
israel can have no 'right to exist' that supercedes the rights of human beings to exist.
And with every murderous move they make, israelis demonstrate for the world that israel is NOT a state - but a murderous CULT, that thrives on denying others what they demand for themselves.
