The Solution to end the Occupation? Voluntary Emigration
By Moshe Feiglin
A survey that appeared on the Israeli news site Ynet proves that an ‘emigration basket’ for the Arab residents of Judea and Samaria who wish to leave Israel is realistic. It expresses the will of most of the descendants of those Arabs who immigrated to our Land in the aftermath of Jewish immigration to Israel. The one trillion NIS that Israel has invested to date in the messianic illusion called the Oslo Process could have easily funded voluntary population exchange – in which Arabs would emigrate from East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to Europe, Canada, Australia and the Arab countries, while young couples and new immigrants would build beautiful cities in their stead and make the Land of Israel flourish.
Currently, we are forcing the children of those who fantasized about throwing the Jewish People into the sea to accept our control. Now that they understand that we are not going into the sea any time soon, we must afford them with a way out: A generous emigration basket so that they may return to their countries of origin or emigrate to wherever they wish.
About two months ago, I was invited to speak in Toronto. When I landed there, I was told to go to the “Diplomatic Desk” for passport control. That desk happens to be right next to the area in which the new immigrants to Canada are processed. There was a huge line there of Third World immigrants.
“What do you do with them?” I asked the supervisor taking care of my papers.
“We set them up with a host family, teach them English and absorb them,” she answered.
“Does anybody here understand English?” one of the clerks suddenly shouted in the direction of the mass of immigrants. One of the immigrants raised his hand. “Ask your friends,” said the clerk, “if anybody here has ten dollars.” (I don’t know what the ten dollars were for).
The man turned to the crowd and asked. Nobody had ten dollars in their pocket.
“Tell me,” I asked the supervisor. “If immigrants were to come here with $100,000 dollars in their pockets, how would you relate to them?”
“We would roll out the red carpet for them,” she said without missing a beat.
