I am confronting the figures concerning Israel and the Arab Countries in order to point out the imbalance between the two.

In the world, there are 22 Arab countries, 5 of which have a common border with the state of Israel or are close to it. I do not take into account non-Arab Muslim countries like Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, or even (in Europe) Albania, where Kosovo has a Muslim majority. These countries gather three quarters of the world’s Muslims, i.e. one billion people. This preliminary remark explains the imbalance at the United Nations: when the subject is Israeli-Palestinian relationships, the outcome is bound to be biased. If the United States of America, as a wonderfully democratic country, had not resisted the pressure of the heavy Arab-Muslim block by opposing a veto on many occasions, small Israel would have been repeatedly condemned.

A sizable minority of Arabs live in Israel, whereas there are virtually no Jews left in the 22 Arab countries (where a few thousand remain scattered, essentially in Morocco and Yemen). It should also be noted that the Maghreb countries (Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia) used to be home to important Jewish communities which have vanished. No Jew coming from an Arab country has been received in another Arab country, although over 900,000 Jews were expelled or had to leave between 1948 and 1967. More than two thirds of these Jewish refugees from Arab countries were accommodated in the tiny state of Israel. How come the 22 Arab countries simultaneously managed to welcome only 650,000 Palestinian refugees? In fact, the latter have been used for sixty years as a permanent threat to the Israelis.

When Jews were in danger in some Muslim countries, Israel saw to it that they should be transferred to Israel. How come and why did the many Muslim countries do nothing to integrate the Arabs who had left Palestine at the time of the 1948 war?

Israel could make peace by granting territorial concessions. But Islam will never be able to accept this, because of a dogma. As Hamadi Nedjab put it significantly, Israel is like a “cancer” in its midst.

I have mentioned the Maghreb, to recall that before the Arab-Muslim conquest, Jews were numerous there. Islam has erased everything. Many Jews were forced to convert, and those who did not eventually had to go.

This is why I am worried about Europe. We can see that Muslim communities are developing very rapidly. There is no doubt that we will soon have to confront Muslim majorities.

Recently, during the news on the national TV channel France 2, it was announced that the four major Dutch cities will have a Muslim majority. We will end up in the same situation as in North Africa, where Islam now rules. The Christian Copts of Egypt were there before the Arab-Muslim conquest. They have been persecuted and slaughtered and are now but a 10-15% minority of the population.

Not all Arabs are Muslims: some have remained Christians after the Middle East fell under Islamic control. They are now being persecuted and driven away.
