Reply re South African Minister of Intelligence, Ronnie Kasrils - defending false myths

I agree with Minister Kasrils that quotations are appropriate when pertinent and consistent with the generally stated position of the person quoted; and backed up by the career and actions of that individual. (Defending false myths, July 18).

I would add however that it is unethical to use quotations out of the context in which they were made or to misinterpret them to serve a writer’s prejudices.

In the correspondence about Minister Kasril’s views on Israel, it is disappointing to note how quotations have been used to score debating points rather than to examine his thesis that Israel is sinful and the Palestinians saintly, while offering no constructive suggestions to resolve the terrible conflict.
 
Using the above parameters about the use of quotations it is relevant to quote Palestinian, Walid Shoebat, a former member of the PLO who participated in terror acts and was imprisoned in Israel. Here are some extracts

“The occupation is in the minds of Children who are taught hatred...The Israeli Arab Conflict is not about geography but about Jew hatred; …The Arab refugees are being used as pawns' to create a terror breeding ground, as a form of aggression against Israel…The Arab refugee problem was caused by Arab aggression and not Israel.”

Lest I be accused of quoting out of context, I hasten to add that the complete text and background may be read on Mr. Shoebat’s web site http://www.shoebat.com/

Mr. Kasrils reference to Israel, having been allocated 56% of British Mandated Palestine by UN Resolution 181, and expanding to 78% in 1949, is flawed.  Present day Israel is obviously a miniscule percentage of the Mandated Palestine allocated for Jewish settlement which then included the territories now known as Jordan, Israel, the West Bank and Gaza

Article 6 of the Mandate granted by the League of Nations specifically requires the Administration, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population, to facilitate Jewish immigration and to encourage close settlement by Jews on the land. See
http://tinyurl.com/6nuc4

Admittedly there are divided opinions on the precise meaning of the Balfour Declaration on which Jewish settlement was based but the 78% figure quoted by Mr. Kasrils is clearly far off the mark.

Kasrils also omits the fact that the Arab states rejected resolution 181, declaring “Holy War” instead, with the publicly proclaimed intention of driving the Jews into the sea and that the moment Israel declared independence, Lebanese, Syrian, Iraqi, Egyptian, and Transjordanian troops, supported by Saudi, Iraqi  and Yemenite troops, attacked the nascent Jewish state. Nor does he quote Arab League Secretary, General Azzam Pasha’s declaration: "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades

There can be no doubt that there would be no Palestinian refugees today if the Arabs had not rejected resolution 181.
