1. Jews have lived continuously in Palestine, in varying numbers, since before the destruction of the second temple. To say that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” implies that the actions of the Israeli government warrant the expulsion of Jews who have lived in what is now the state of Israel for generations, even centuries.
2. I can’t believe I even have to take the time to write this, but not all Jews who immigrated to Israel came from Germany and Poland – or even from Eastern Europe, or even from Europe at all. About half of Israel’s Jewish population is made up of Jews from the Middle East and North Africa. From the late 19th century to the mid-20th, between 800,000 and 1,000,000 Jews left or were expelled from Middle Eastern and North African countries, and most of them went to Israel.
3. This should be made apparent by item #2 and some knowledge of the Holocaust (including the Zionist movement’s part in strong-arming Holocaust survivors into immigrating to Israel), but not all Jewish immigration to Israel has been fully voluntary. Without even getting into the issue of Jewish descendants of immigrants, it’s pretty hilarious to suggest that a Jew who was forced to leave their country of origin should just pack up and go back.
What we need to talk about when we talk about Palestine is the ethnic cleansing that started with the first actions of political Zionists and Christian Restorationists and continues as I type this sentence. Sweeping, ignorant, and offensive proclamations that Jews should go back where they came from (an idea that, by the way, helped catalyze the Zionist movement in the first place) will not secure freedom for a single Palestinian.
