Jews in Israel agree on ethnic cleansing. Statistics might be higher for Jews Not living in Israel?

Jews in Israel agree on ethnic cleansing. Statistics might be higher for Jews Not living in Israel?

Note: re-edit of the article of 2016 “Nearly half of Israeli Jews believe in ethnic cleansing, survey finds”

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the findings a ‘wake-up call for Israeli society’

Almost half of Jewish Israelis believe Arabs should be “expelled or transferred” from Israel, a survey has found. (Is that why Israel built Walls of Shame around its borders that its constitution never delimited?)

A study carried out by the Pew Research Centre found that around one in five adults questioned “strongly agreed” with the controversial statement, which amounts to ethnic cleansing under some definitions.

The Encyclopaedia Britannica describes the act as “attempting to create ethnically homogeneous geographic areas through the deportation or forcible displacement of persons belonging to particular ethnic group”, while a United Nations report in 1993 additionally specified the use of “force or intimidation”.

(Actually, the Palestinians are Not different ethnically, and yet they have got to be transferred for economic reasons in order to acquire free lands and resources)

(Most of the Jews in Israel are from various ethnic background, so how this definition can stand if Not believing in religious myths and acquired privileges?)

In Pew’s survey, 48 per cent of Jewish respondents said Arabs (Israel and Western colonial powers that established Israel try Not to say Palestinians in order Not to give them an particular identity) should be removed from Israel, while a similar share disagreed with the statement.

While 54 to 71% of Jews who defined themselves as ultra-Orthodox, religious or “traditional” supported such a step, only about 36% of the secular community did (They have vested interests in cheap labor?).

“While religious identity influences Israeli Jews’ views on the expulsion of Arabs, the survey finds that even after taking this and other demographic factors into account, Jews’ views on the expulsion of Arabs are most strongly correlated with their political ideology,” the Pew Research Centre report noted.

“The further to the left on the political spectrum, the more Jews are likely to oppose the expulsion of Arabs from Israel, just rhetorically.”

Those supporting the cleansing tended to be Russian-speaking, rather than Hebrew or Yiddish, male, and with a Jewish education to secondary level or below.

(Racist behavior emanating from internal feeling of Not being to the level)

Reuven Rivlin, the President of Israel, called the findings a “wake-up call for Israeli society”.

“It pains me to see the gap that exists in the public’s consciousness – religious and secular – between the notion of Israel as a Jewish state and as a democratic state,” he added. (This President would have liked that 99% of the Jews agree on the transfer of the Palestinians?)

“A further problem is the attitude towards Israel’s Palestinian citizens.

Israeli Arab is the Israeli government’s definition of non-Jewish citizens and many members of the minority, who are predominantly Muslim, identify as Palestinian.

In the same survey, almost 80% of Jewish Israelis said Jews deserved preferential treatment in Israel, while a similar proportion of Israeli Arabs claimed they had seen discrimination against Muslims (and Christians).

The research appeared to show that all religious and ethnic groups had lost hope for a two-state solution, with half of Palestinians saying co-existence was possible compared to 40 per cent of Jewish Israelis.

The most recent round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks collapsed in 2014, just before a 7-week war in Gaza, and tensions have worsened in recent months with a resurgence of violence that has seen an estimated 28 Israelis and 172 Palestinians – mostly attackers – killed.

Pew conducted through face-to-face interviews in Hebrew, Arabic and Russian with more than 5,600 Israeli adults from October 2014 to May 2015 for the research.

The survey used the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics’ definition of the Israeli population, which includes settlers living in the West Bank as well as Arab residents of East Jerusalem.

Note: Another urgent survey is needed, after the Trump pronouncement on Jerusalem and the realization of the Israelis that No effective preemptive wars are feasible anymore
