By Timothy D. Naegele
I am forever reminded of what a prominent American-who is a Jew and a strong supporter of Israel, and who has written for the Wall Street Journal many times-told me several years ago:
I have long thought that Israel will not make it, if only because of what are cavalierly called WMD [weapons of mass destruction] and its very tight geographical compression. All else is immaterial, including the Palestinians, or us, or the nature of Israel's [government].
WMDs come in many forms, such as deadly viruses, biological and chemical agents, and of course nuclear and nation-ending EMP attacks. Neither Israel's military, its security forces nor its "Iron Dome" can protect against such threats.
The Israeli Apartheid vis-à-vis the Palestinians may have sown the seeds of the tiny Jewish state's destruction. Indeed, one prominent Jew has asked about the treatment of Palestinians: "Is this how I wanted to be treated when I was a minority in another people's country?"
Months and years from now, Benjamin Netanyahu and his ilk will confront the legacy of their crimes against the Palestinians, including an estimated 2,200 deaths in Gaza last year alone. Indeed, he has morphed into his ancestors' Nazi oppressors. He must be tried by the International Criminal Court, and arrested whenever he sets foot outside of Israel.
Barack Obama and other world leaders "detest" him, just as the Rabins and Ariel Sharon hated him. Indeed, Leah Rabin blamed Netanyahu for her husband Yitzhak's assassination. She saw "only doom for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process" with Netanyahu at Israel's helm; and her views were prescient.
Each day that Netanyahu remains in power brings Israel closer to its demise, and Jews globally closer to the first holocaust of the 21st Century-which may make the Nazi Holocaust of the last century seem like "child's play." The human carnage might make even mass murderers like Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung wince.
The massacre and mindless slaughter of Jews-and especially Orthodox Jews-may be coming and might surpass anything that ISIS/ISIL or other global terrorist groups have done thus far. The rape and enslavement of Jewish women-prior to their brutal torture and death-may make what the Soviets and Japanese did to German women and Korean "comfort women" pale by comparison.
The goal of Israel's enemies would be to annihilate all Israelis, and then systematically focus on Jews around the world until they are exterminated. Today, Jews can be targeted globally and there is nothing that Israel or its vaulted Mossad can do to protect them. This will only get dramatically worse. Tragically, Jews are the most hated group of human beings on the planet, yet they respond out of fear and anger-and lash out with hatred toward others, including Islamophobia.
American president-and the father of today's Left-Franklin D. Roosevelt, turned away the MS St. Louis from docking at American ports, and consigned most of the Jewish refugees aboard to their deaths in Europe. The other anti-Semites in FDR's administration knew of the Nazi concentration camps, yet did nothing about them. Soon, the world may turn a "blind eye" to the fate of Israel and global Jewry.
Like the Jews aboard the MS St. Louis, they may be truly on the last "Voyage of the Damned."

 As I have written:
Years ago when I was in Germany visiting friends, I was told by someone that the only thing wrong with Hitler was that he did not "finish the job" of killing all of the Jews.

 Jews cowardly try to stifle debate at Web sites, and label anyone who does not agree with Netanyahu, AIPAC and the AIPAC-bought Republican lackeys in Congress as anti-Semites, which of course is absurd.
Labeling people as anti-Semites, much less on a wholesale basis, reverberates to the detriment of Jews, Israel and Israelis. Indeed, Jews are being urged to flee to Israel, as anti-Semitism spreads dramatically in Europe and globally.

Netanyahu's critics-Jews and non-Jews alike-are falsely labeled as "Israel haters," "self-hating Jews" and anti-Semites.
Aside from the traitor Jonathan Pollard, no American should ever forget:
(NYSE:B) The Iraq War, which Israel and its "neocon" surrogates pushed us into-which resulted in thousands of Americans killed or maimed, and vast economic treasures wasted.
And these are only the ones that are generally known. No friend or ally does this.
Yet, the "Israel Firsters" will leap to its defense as always, claiming that anyone who criticizes the tiny country and its practices is an anti-Semite, including Jews themselves.
Perhaps their most "unhinged" vitriol is reserved for those who believe in Islam-even though Islam has 1.8 billion followers, while at most Judaism has 14 million followers.
