Israel wants to wipe Arabic culture off the map

Written by Subject: Seriously?
If Israel was part of Europe they would be facing Crimes against Humanity charges there is absolutely no way they would get away with this. Ethnic Cleansing Law- Ethnic cleansing is the forcible deportation of a population and is defined as a crime against humanity under the statutes of both International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The gross human-rights violations integral to stricter definitions of ethnic cleansing are treated as separate crimes falling under the definitions for genocide or crimes against humanity of the statutes.

The UN Commission of Experts (established pursuant to Security Council Resolution 780) held that the practices associated with ethnic cleansing "constitute crimes against humanity and can be assimilated to specific war crimes. Furthermore ... such acts could also fall within the meaning of the Genocide Convention." The UN General Assembly condemned "ethnic cleansing" and racial hatred in a 1992 resolution.

The purpose of ethnic cleansing is to remove competitors. The party implementing this policy sees a risk (or a useful scapegoat) in a particular ethnic group, and uses propaganda about that group to stir up FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) in the general population. The targeted ethnic group is marginalized and demonized. It can also be conveniently blamed for the economic, moral and political woes of that region.

Physically removing the targeted ethnic community provides a very clear, visual reminder of the power of the current government. It also provides a safety-valve for violence stirred up by the FUD. The government in power benefits significantly from seizing the assets of the dispossessed ethnic group.

The reason given for ethnic cleansing is usually that the targeted community is potentially or actually hostile to the "approved" population.

This claim despite the fact that Israel proper has many Arabs living within it's borders and whom are recognized and treated as equal citizens along with other groups (religious or ethnic).

4409 fails to make the distinction between Arabs who live in Israel proper and those who live in one of the occupied territories. The ones who live in Gaza/West Bank are assumed guilty until proven innocent due to groups like Hamas that are hostile to Israel and the Jews.

What is insane are people like 4409 jumping to irrational conclusions and making assumptions without knowing any of the facts surrounding the situation in the Middle East and the Israel/Gaza dispute.
