McCain's brother's speech on the Jews & Israel

Senator John McCain's brother on The Jews & Israel.
    There is a lot of worry popping up in the media just now -- "Can
    Israel Survive?" Don't worry about it. It relates to something that 
    Palestinians, the Arabs, and perhaps most Americans don't realize --
    the Jews are never going quietly again. Never. And if the world
    doesn't come to understand that, then millions of Arabs are going to 
    die. It's as simple as that.
    Throughout the history of the world, the most abused, kicked-around
    race of people have been the Jews. Not just during the holocaust of 
    World War II, but for thousands of years. They have truly been "The
    Chosen People" in a terrible and tragic sense.
    The Bible story of Egypt 's enslavement of the Jews is not just a 
    story, it is history, if festooned with theological legend and
    heroic epics. In 70 A. D. the Romans, which had for a long time
    tolerated the Jews -- even admired them as 'superior' to other 
    vassals -- tired of their truculent demands for independence and
    decided on an early "Solution" to the Jewish problem. Jerusalem was
    sacked and reduced to near rubble, Jewish resistance was pursued and 
    crushed by the implacable Roman War Machine -- see ' Masada '. And
    thus began The Diaspora, the dispersal of Jews throughout the rest
    of the world.
    Their homeland destroyed, their culture crushed, they looked 
    desperately for the few niches in a hostile world where they could
    be safe. That safety was fragile, and often subject to the whims of
    moody hosts. The words 'pogrom', 'ghetto', and 'anti-Semitism' come 
    from this treatment of the first mono-theistic people. Throughout
    Europe , changing times meant sometimes tolerance, sometimes even
    warmth for the Jews, but eventually it meant hostility, then 
    malevolence. There is not a country in Europe or Western Asia that
    at one time or another has not decided to lash out against the
    children of Moses, sometimes by whim, sometimes by manipulation. 
    Winston Churchill calls Edward I one of England 's very greatest
    kings. It was under his rule in the late 1200's that Wales and
    Cornwall were hammered into the British crown, and Scotland and 
    Ireland were invaded and occupied. He was also the first European
    monarch to set up a really effective administrative bureaucracy,
    surveyed and censused his kingdom, established laws and political 
    divisions. But he also embraced the Jews.
    Actually Edward didn't embrace Jews so much as he embraced their
    money. For the English Jews had acquired wealth -- understandable, 
    because this people that could not own land or office, could not
    join most of the trades and professions, soon found out that money
    was a very good thing to accumulate. Much harder to take away than 
    land or a store, was a hidden sock of gold and silver coins. Ever
    resourceful, Edward found a way -- he borrowed money from the Jews
    to finance imperial ambitions in Europe, especially France . The 
    loans were almost certainly not made gladly, but how do you refuse
    your King? Especially when he is 'Edward the Hammer'. Then, rather
    than pay back the debt, Edward simply expelled the Jews. Edward was 
    especially inventive -- he did this twice. After a time, he invited
    the Jews back to their English homeland, borrowed more money, then
    expelled them again.
    Most people do not know that Spain was one of the early entrants
    into The Renaissance. People from all over the world came to Spain
    in the late medieval period. All were welcome -- Arabs, Jews, other 
    Europeans. The University of Salamanca was one of the great centers
    of learning in the world -- scholars of all nations, all fields came
    to Salamanca to share their knowledge and their ideas. But in 1492, 
    Ferdinand and Isabella, having driven the last of Moors from the
    Spanish Shield, were persuaded by the righteous fundamentalists of
    the time to announce "The Act of Purification". A series of steps 
    were taken in which all Jews and Arabs and other non-Christians were
    expelled from the country, or would face the tools and the torches
    of The Inquisition. From this 'cleansing' come the Sephardic Jews -- 
    as opposed to the Ashkenazis of Eastern Europe . In Eastern Europe ,
    the sporadic violence and brutality against Jews are common
    knowledge. 'Fiddler' without the music and the folksy humor. At 
    times of fury, no accommodation by the Jew was good enough, no
    profile low enough, no village poor enough or distant enough.
    From these come the near-steady flow of Jews to the United States . 
    And despite the disdain of the Jews by most 'American' Americans,
    they came to grab the American Dream with both hands, and
    contributed everything from new ideas of enterprise in retail and 
    entertainment to becoming some of our finest physicians and lawyers.
    The modern United States , in spite of itself, IS The United States
    in part because of its Jewish blood. 
    Then the Nazi Holocaust -- the corralling, sorting, orderly
    eradication of millions of the people of Moses. Not something that
    other realms in other times didn't try to do, by the way, the 
    Germans were just more organized and had better murder technology.
    I stood in the center of Dachau for an entire day, about 15 years
    ago, trying to comprehend how this could have happened. I had gone 
    there on a side trip from Munich , vaguely curious about this Dachau .
    I soon became engulfed in the enormity of what had occurred there
    nestled in this middle and working class neighborhood. 
    How could human beings do this to other human beings, hear their
    cries, their pleas, their terror, their pain, and continue without
    apparently even wincing? I no longer wonder. At some times, some 
    places, ANY sect of the human race is capable of horrors against
    their fellow man, whether a member of the Waffen SS, a Serbian
    sniper, a Turkish policeman in 1920's Armenia , a Mississippi 
    Klansman. Because even in the United States not all was a Rose
    Garden. For a long time Jews had quotas in our universities and
    graduate schools. Only so many Jews could be in a medical or law 
    school at one time. Jews were disparaged widely. I remember as a kid
    Jewish jokes
    told without a wince - "Why do Jews have such big noses?"
    Well, now the Jews have a homeland again. A place that is theirs. 
    And that's the point. It doesn't matter how many times the United
    States and European powers try to rein in Israel, if it comes down
    to survival of its nation, its people, they will fight like no 
    lioness has ever fought to save her cubs. They will fight with a
    ferocity, a determination, and a skill, that will astound us.
    And many will die, mostly their attackers, I believe. If there were 
    a macabre historical betting parlor, my money would be on the
    Israelis to be standing at the end. As we killed the kamikazes and
    the Wehrmacht soldaten of World War II, so will the Israelis kill 
    their suicidal attackers, until there are not enough to torment
    The irony goes unnoticed -- while we are hammering away to punish
    those who brought the horrors of last September here, we restrain 
    the Israelis from the same retaliation. Not the same thing, of
    course -- We are We, They are They. While we mourn and seethe at
    September 11th, we don't notice that Israel has a September 11th 
    sometimes every day.
    We may not notice, but it doesn't make any difference. And it
    doesn't make any difference whether you are pro-Israeli or you think
    Israel is the bully of the Middle East . If it comes to where a new
    holocaust looms -- with or without the concurrence of the United
    States and Europe -- Israel will lash out without pause or restraint 
    at those who would try to annihilate their country.
    The Jews will not go quietly again.
