Israel must continue its policy of international isolationism. By closing our doors to foreign funding of NGOs we are preventing foreigners from corrupting Israeli domestic issues. This will keep Israel Israeli and preserve the integrity of our democracy. But these measures are not enough. More steps must be taken by Israel to ensure that she will never be contaminated by the monies and ideas of outlanders.
She should bar herself from foreign companies who steal Israeli markets from Israeli companies, and instead set up national conglomerates and monopolies, and raise protective tariffs to protect our native industries. Why should we leave Israel’s nascent commerce open to the ravaging effects of international capitalist piracy?
She should shut her gates to foreign workers who rob Israelis of honorable low-wage jobs. They undermine our society, make it impure, and multiply within our borders. Let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it come to pass that, should war befall us, they ally with our enemies and fight against us. Keep these foreigners out and protect Israel.
She should keep tourists from countries that criticize her out. They only come to this country to point out our flaws, so why let them in? She should tell the American Jews to keep their no-strings-attached billions to themselves. Their Jewish identities and practices are corrupted by American life and their political allegiance to Israel suspect. And the private donors that build Israel’s schools and universities and hospitals should donate the money to Israeli government, who will allocate it, in its wisdom, as necessary. Those independent institutions should not be trusted with funds from individuals abroad.
She should tell the US government to keep its billions of dollars in annual military aid. We are strong and can manage without their guns, missiles, and planes. She should tell the Egyptians we don’t need their oil and gas, that they should keep it for themselves. She should tell the meddling Turks to mind their own business, and keep the water we once wanted to buy by the billions of cubic feet—we’d rather parch. She should tell the EU that we’ve had enough of their bleeding heart NGOs. We need their trade no more if it comes with those strings attached. We are better off without any of these.
Israel should tell her citizens to stop traveling abroad, that there is nothing worth seeing in the outlands of chul. Everything they need can be found in the land of their forefathers. She should urge her forgotten sons and daughters to return to the motherland, lest they forget the promised land from whence they came or the holy tongue they once spoke. Urging the diaspora homewards with expensive propaganda campaigns, she should precipitate the influx of hordes of Jews from abroad and build concrete metropolises to house them, and factories to employ them.
There is no reason why we should rely on foreign countries or their seditious funds. Israel is strong and we can do it on our own. We can grow our food, make our own goods, protect our own people, and revere our leaders as they are meant to be, and preserve democracy for the Israeli people. To reassure everyone, however, of our democratic identity, we should also rename the state the Democratic Jewish People’s Republic of Israel.
