Recent replies from Messrs Kevin McCarthy, Noru Tsalic and Ciarán O’ Raghallaigh, (Letters, Irish Examiner), to my humble letter on the recently perceived increase in the incidents of anti-Semitism, appear to play the man rather than address what I merely reported as the views of prominent Israelis confirming a link between the behaviour of the the state of Israel, and especially its military, and an increase in anti-Jewish incidents.
Israeli premier Netanyahu is certainly not worried about any increase in world-wide anti-Jewish animus as he sees here an opportunity for an increase in Jewish immigration into the occupied Palestinian West-Bank.
However, it appears likely that this increasing colonisation will kill off the Two-State solution, leading to a unitary state where the indigenous Palestinians could outnumber Jewish Israelis.
With the so-called ‘Islamic State’ getting closer to Israel’s borders, the indigenous Palestinians could turn out to be the Israelis’ best partner in a new rights-based unitary state, generating international support for its Jewish, Muslim and Christian citizens.
