The Palestinians are Not Stateless. They are STATEFREE –
And Why That’s a Huge Advantage
My Husband and I were discussing the Issue of Statelessness.
It occurred to me, as an Israeli, that Statelessness can have decided Advantages; if one sees the matter properly and sees the Opportunity therein.
After learning that the British “gentlemen” who debated ratifying the Balfour Declaration decided to vote in favor of the creation of the State of Israel on the proviso that it functioned as the “Ulster of the ME”; I realized that becoming a State is only possible if the established powers can integrate that State into the International Munitions (and probably Drugs) Markets.
The Jews were freer to be Moral when we did NOT have a State. We were not more vulnerable when we were not concentrated in one small geographical area either.
My Husband suggested calling people who are not bound by citizenship in a State STATE-FREE, instead of Stateless.
There are many STATE-FREE Peoples all over the world and, if they reach out to one another, including to the many SEPARATIST Movements around the world, they could become a Force to Be Reckoned With.
The strength of the Multinational Banks and Corporations resides precisely in their being Supra-National.
To fight them, we need Supra-National Businesses, which STATE-FREE People can form.
My recommendation to the PALESTINIANS is to reach out to other STATE-FREE Peoples instead of insisting upon Statehood, which will require that you give up your Morality and accept other constraints that you will come to hate.
Reach out the the Basques who run the Cooperative MONDRAGON – a tremendously successful Cooperative.
Reach out to the Frisians.
Reach out to the Sami.
Reach out to the Roma.
There are so many, MANY STATE-FREE Peoples in the world.
Reach out and do not allow yourselves to be limited by artificial borders.
Instead of being one Organ in the Body of Humanity, limited in place, become the Lifeblood of Humanity, present and essential Everywhere.
