Reflections on the Uhm El Fahim Tea Party
I traveled the length of Israel to participate in a march through the Arab occupied town of Uhm El Fahim in the Lower Galilee. I went north to expose the myth of the "moderate Israeli-Arab"and to piss off the animals of the accursed town. I came to sanctify G-d's name by asserting Jewish sovereignty on every inch of the land, and showing the world that some Jews will go anywhere in Israel without fear.
In retrospect, I went to Uhm El Fahim out of naivete. Uhm El Fahim conjured up images of a time I missed (the good old days if you will) when Rabbi Kahane came to visit, and sent the Arabs into a frenzy. I went to Uhm El Fahim despite the fact that the organizers of the march are the same people that betrayed Rav Kahane's message for Knesset seats and power.
I expected the police to prevent us from marching. (Such things have been known to happen in Israel.) Surprisingly, the police allowed the march to take place in accordance with the High Court's ridiculous terms. Without getting into details, it need only be said that I and several other individuals were prevented from marching by the organizers themselves. Hindsight being what it is, I now understand that the organizers knew that the march would be a sham from the start. It was an opportunity for them to get their duplicitous faces in the newspapers and on TV. That's why they didn't fight the court order (which granted them a measly 25 minutes on the periphery of town) and instead heralded the march as a great victory. They should have refused the ridiculous terms and noted that the homosexuals who came to defile the Holy City with their sickening faigel parade, were given more than 25 minutes to march, and weren't confined to the outskirts of town.
The Arabs behaved as expected. They came to lynch Jews and when they discovered that the marchers were on the other end of town (protected by distance and thousands of police) they turned their wrath on the police. If the goal was for the the Arabs to expose themselves, then the organizers were successful. The problem is that the organizers present themselves as Jewish warriors. That being the case the march in Uhm El Fahim displayed Jewish weakness and acquiescence. It was a parlor trick of smoke and mirrors.
We need to return to the vipers' nest for a proper Jewish march. It's time to file for another permit. Next time we march through the town and not around it. The Arabs want a confrontation. Let them have it. Let them meet the kind of Jews they don't want to meet.
