The whole point of Ikhras is to prove that behaving like a House Arab is a very bad idea or “strategy” as House Arabs like to call it. Being a housie* doesn’t shield you from the slavemaster’s oppression. For example, in today’s Haaretz:
A Palestinian man who is married to a Jewish woman and whose son served in the Israel Defense Forces was recently informed that he is ineligible for a permanent visa to live in Israel.
“I can’t buy a home here like a human being, I can’t open a business for fear that they’ll soon kick me out,” said Adel Hussein, who has lived most of his life in the West Bank city of Tul Karm, but now wants to live near his son in Israel …
“There is no explanation as to why they’re not letting me be a permanent citizen. My son served in a combat unit – is that not total loyalty to the state?” …[The IDF son] changed his name from Mohammed Hussein to Yossi Peretz…
This unfortunate story reminds you of the Five Civilized Tribes, who adopted white settlers’ practices of private property, written laws, Christiantiy, built homes and even went as far as owning slaves. But they still got ethnically cleansed at the end of the law.
You squeeze the lemon and [when] it’s got no juice left, you throw it away.
*Housie: short for “House Arabs and House Muslims,” terms inspired by Malcolm X’s use of “House Negro.”
