The 1990s rock hair metal band "Extreme" prophetically and probably unknown to them wrote the lyrics I dedicate to the racist Israeli Arab MKs who cried and whined about U.S. Vice President Mike Pence’s speech at the Knesset on January 22nd. The speech was received by Jews and Israelis alike nationally and globally as another affirmation of the U.S. administration's strong bond and ties to the State of Israel.So to review these great lyrics, I will put in perspective another great statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin said in January 2012 regarding minorities and guest workers: “We must create the conditions for immigrants to normally integrate into our society, learn Russian, and, of course, respect our culture and traditions and abide by Russian law.” What a racist statement of Mr. Putin! In Israel we expect nothing but the same, if you’re here as a minority or an immigrant, we expect you to respect our culture, our language and our history.Regardless of if you do not believe we have a history in the Land of Israel, and you're some supersessionist, as demonstrated by many “Palestinian” Christians. Regardless of your belief, the State of Israel is founded to be the only Jewish state. The same goes for the Republic of Poland, the Polish state. Poles live all around the world, but there is only one official Polish state and that is Poland.There are many Arab and Muslim states, yet the little Land of Israel must battle the international community, raging neighbors and internal unhappy Arabs in order to maintain the Promised Land. Ask most any Israeli Arabs if they want to live under the rule of the Palestinian Authority and see how many jump at the chance to hand in their Israeli citizenship.Yet, the Joint List MKs, who apparently don’t reflect the views of the local Israeli Arab population, but seem to reflect the views of the Palestinian Authority, need to realize they are Israeli and not from the so-called "Palestinian State." But, since they believe Israel is such a racist state, and by racism they mean millions of Arabs are living under such harsh and such a controlling authority, they must of forgotten what Sharia law does to women and what their religion wants to do to them.So, I thank the band Extreme and songwriters Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt for these great lyrics as a reminder that you don’t need to live here, you can go to whatever culture you want. But, if you do live here, respect us, our people, government and the laws of which you have chosen to live under. I dedicate this to anyone who has a problem with the democratic, free, and the only Jewish State of Israel: “If you don't like what you see here. Nobody wants to take you prisoner. So, let me make it nice and clear, dear. The exit is right there. I don't mean to be rude, dude. But you'd better change your attitude. (I don't like what I see here). You're all invited to the party. You know you didn't have to come. No rotten apple's gonna spoil all my fun!" If you don't like what you see here: Get the funk out!
