Sweden and...Meir Kahane


Under a scheme organised by the local authorities in the town of Soderhamn and by Sweden's national employment office, anyone aged between 18 and 28 can volunteer to take a "Job Journey" to Oslo and attempt track down gainful employment. Those who sign up get a ticket to the Norwegian capital and are put up in an Oslo youth hostel for a month, with Soderhamn council picking up the £20 a night bill. The package also includes on-the-spot guidance on how to get a job in Sweden's northern neighbour.
"We had an unemployment rate of over 25 per cent, so we had to find solutions," Magus Nilsen, the man in charge of the project at Soderhamn council, told the Daily Telegraph. "Going to Norway to find work has always been quite popular with young people, but sometimes they want to go but don't know how to find a job or accommodation so we thought we'd give them a bit of help with both."
So far around 100 people have decided to leave Soderhamn, a town of 12,000, 250 kilometres due north of Stockholm, to try their luck in the bright lights of Oslo, and some, at least, have struck gold.

But isn't that similar, in principle, to what MK M. Kahane suggested:

Kahane proposed a $40,000 compensation plan for Arabs who would leave voluntarily, forcible expulsion "for those who don’t want to leave,"

But - serious question - who is an "Arab"? Anyone who speaks Arabic? Does it include the Druzim? The most recent Yemenite arrivals?

You dat-Moshe-centric people will always end up running into these paradox'im. dat-Moshe is an interesting thing and a wonderful thing - but not once in history has it successfully been the organizing theme of a kingdom or of any other operable political entity.

The last time it was tried, the various flavors of Zealots started cutting each others throats on the streets of Jerusalem.

I would like to see Temple Mount cleansed of what is there now.... but I hope I don't live to see an actual re-built Temple. More dat-Moshe folk would kill each other about control of that building than was ever lost to Arabushim.
