  • 'NYT' can't keep its story straight on anti-Semitism in Germany
    • North and Weiss can easily reconcile the NYT reports Indigeneous Europeans resent Russian-Israeli displacement, privilege, and sometimes criminality, and Israelis appreciate the same opportunities .

      This explains the self segregation described above, but there is another factor, Israeli (Russian sic) organized crime. in Europe, in which Berlin functions as HQ,. This has attracted US State dept concern.

      ¶20. (SBU) Israel's multi-ethnic population provides a deep well of
      opportunity for Israeli OC to expand into new territory. Most
      Israeli crime families trace their roots to North Africa or Eastern
      Europe, and many of their Israeli operatives hold foreign passports
      allowing them to move freely in European countries, most of which
      participate in the visa waiver program with the United States.
      Approximately one million Russians moved to Israel following the
      dissolution of the Soviet Union, and Russian citizens no longer
      require visas to enter Israel. Many Russian oligarchs of Jewish
      origin and Jewish members of OC groups have received Israeli
      citizenship, or at least maintain residences in the country. Little
      is known about the full extent of Russian criminal activity in
      Israel, but sources in the police estimate that Russian OC has
      laundered as much as USD 10 billion through Israeli holdings. While
      most Israeli OC families are native-born and the stereotype that
      Russian immigrants tend to be mobsters is greatly overblown,
      indigenous OC groups routinely employ "muscle" from the former
      Soviet Union.

      MALCOLM X:”THE HOUSE NEGRO AND THE FIELD NEGRO”:SPEECH TO SNCC WORKERS,SELMA, ALABAMA,FEB.4,1965

      "I’m a field Negro. The masses are the field Negroes. When they see this man’s house on fire, you don’t hear these little Negroes talking about “our government is in trouble.” They say, “The government is in trouble.” Imagine a Negro: “Our government”! I even heard one say “our astronauts.” They won’t even let him near the plant — and “our astronauts”! “Our Navy” — that’s a Negro that’s out of his mind. That’s a Negro that’s out of his mind."

  • 'Progressive' rabbi ascribes Roger Waters's concern with 500 Palestinian child victims to rocker's alleged drug use
    • Progressive except Palestine PEPs may be Gibeonites:

      " “Maimonides, Laws of Forbidden Relationships, Chapter 19, Law 17.” In that chapter, Maimonides states that Jews are not supposed to marry gentiles. He further states that if you meet a Jew with certain character traits, you should doubt that they are really Jews. Even if you meet a person whose family tree is Jewish all the way up, if they display certain traits, Maimonides says that you shouldn’t marry them for fear that they can’t really be Jews. He states:

      “Similarly, whenever a person is characterized by insolence and cruelty, hating people and not showing kindness to them, we seriously suspect that he is a Gibeonite. For the distinguishing signs of the holy nation of Israel is that they are meek, merciful and kind.”

  • Israel's Dead Soul: Steven Salaita's critical scholarship explains his dismissal from the University of Illinois
    • He's implying, but not stating outright, a conclusion others have reached, the link between multiculturalism and zionism, the former flowing from the latter:

      "My point here is not to suggest that Zionism corrupts multiculturalism, though that is likely the case, at least in the abstract. I suggest instead the possibility that multiculturalism itself is problematic because it so easily accommodates Zionism (and other troublesome ideologies). Is the point of multiculturalism to oppose unjust power and racism? Or is it to provide spaces within institutions where ethnic minorities can escape racism? What is the point of using multicultural apparatuses to promote Israel as the apogee of Jewishness? -

      No, zionism did not corrupt multiculturalism, MC is a weapon of Zionism: it breaks up national, religious class identities and replaces those unities with ghettoized skin color and sexual role identities, easily manipulated into ineffective divisive splintered body politics.

      How can we explain the Progressive except Palestine ideology, the NAACP as an organization founded and maintained by zionism, the MC embrace of an organization called 'La Raza', the race. ?

      Balkanization, supremacism, choseness for all, and none, at the same time. The ideology of transnational corporations - all reduced to Benetton skin color, sexual expression, and consumerism fetishes.

      Cass also doesnt like Jews very much:

      The temerity of some Jews to demand that a prayer for the conversion of the Jews be stricken from the prayers of the church is astonishing," said Cass. "For two thousand years Israeli Jews have renounced Christ and Christians. Jewish teachers have belittled Christ and Christians in the most strident terms in their sacred writings, the Talmud. I do not see these same Jews demanding anti-Christian texts be removed from their Talmud."

      Why Anders Breivik's Manifesto Mentions Me
      By Rod Dreher

      Noah Millamn on Dreher and Sullivan

      Dreher and Sullivan alike are Christians. I’m not. They assume that Jesus’s call to “turn the other cheek” means that Christianity has acted as a historic brake on violence. As a Jew, I have to question that assumption. After all, the number of Christian countries in history that have been governed according to principles of non-violence is exactly zero. Someone from a religious tradition whose founding texts articulated rules about when violence is justified or permitted might look at the long history of Christian violence – not just violence by Christians, but violence undertaken with the Church’s encouragement and undertaken in the name of Jesus – and say: gee, maybe saying “turn the other cheek” backfires, makes all violence seem equally sinful, and therefore opens the gate to truly horrific behavior?

  • Tablet types Rev. Shipman as elite, anti-semitic WASP
    • an elite built on usury, banal entertainment, gaming, and tech toys , of any religion, will always be crass and seek to displace the culture of building things and agriculture, old ways. History repeats itself:

      "Austrians may not have known exactly what it meant to be Austrian, but their search for an identity “developed within the bounds of an already shaky political framework that gained stability when defined in terms of Jewish difference” (p. 9). Jews were “in danger of becoming shut out of a definition of Austrianness that unified its otherwise fractured political and ethnic elements under one anti-Semitic rubric” (p. 9). If nothing else, interwar Austrians could agree that being Austrian meant being “not Jewish.” Additionally, Jewish difference played into the dichotomy between the provinces and Vienna. Whereas the provinces, and those who populated them, defined themselves as rural, traditional, Catholic, and thus truly “Austrian,” they coded “Red Vienna” as their opposite, a “dangerous ‘Jewish’ metropolis—superficial, ugly, crass, corrupt, depraved, socialist, capitalist, materialist, decadent, modern, and immoral,"

  • Wiesel lauds settlers for 'strengthening the Jewish presence in Jerusalem' -- and expelling Palestinians
    • The Society of Jesus was the religious order with the largest number of prisoners in Dachau. There were 26 Jesuit priests in the camp, not counting Jesuit lay brothers and seminarians. Because they were so numerous, the Jesuits formed their own community and elected a superior, Fr. Leo DeConinck, SJ, of Belgium. After the war, Fr. DeConinck described his jailers and tormentors: "Never before Dachau had I seen real hatred: eyes aflame with wickedness, mouths twisted in anger at the mere sight of a priest. "

      Elie Wiesel, who was a child when he was sent to Auschwitz, has said: "Not all victims [of the Nazis] were Jews, but all Jews were victims.... They were doomed not because of something they had done or proclaimed or acquired but because of who they were." This statement is equally true of the Slavs and the Gypsies whom the Nazis had also marked for extermination. In time, if the Third Reich had triumphed, it might have become true for all Christians, since Hitler saw the Church as an implacable enemy.

  • Following shocking sermon, Atlanta JVP calls on area rabbis to challenge racism in Jewish community
    • Not according to the Jewish encyclopedia :

      The name "Molech," later corrupted into "Moloch," is an intentional mispointing of "Melek," after the analogy of "bosheth" (comp. Hoffmann in Stade's "Zeitschrift," iii. 124). As to the rites which the worshipers of Molech performed, it has sometimes been inferred, from the phrase "pass through the fire to Molech," that children were made to pass between two lines of fire as a kind of consecration or februation; but it is clear from Isa. lvii. 5 and Jer. xix. 5 that the children were killed and burned. The whole point of the offering consisted, therefore, in the fact that it was a human sacrifice. From Jer. vii. 31 and Ezek. xx. 25, 26, it is evident that both prophets regarded these human sacrifices as extraordinary offerings to Yhwh. Jeremiah declares that Yhwh had not commanded them, while Ezekiel says Yhwh polluted the Israelites in their offerings by permitting them to sacrifice their first-born, so that through chastisement they might know that Yhwh was Yhwh. The fact, therefore, now generally accepted by critical scholars, is that in the last days of the kingdom human sacrifices were offered to Yhwh as King or Counselor of the nation and that the Prophets disapproved of it and denounced it because it was introduced from outside as an imitation of a heathen cult and because of its barbarity. In course of time the pointing of "Melek" was changed to "Molech" to still further stigmatize the rites.

    • VATICAN CITY (RNS) A special Vatican meeting on the Middle East ended Saturday (Oct. 23) with a flare-up in Catholic-Jewish tensions, after an American bishop declared the Bible does not give Jews privileged rights to the land of Israel.

      "We Christians cannot speak of the 'promised land' as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people," said Archbishop Cyril Bustros, a native of Lebanon who is currently a Melkite Greek Catholic bishop in Newton, Mass.

      "This promise was nullified by Christ," Bustros said at a Vatican press conference marking the end of a two-week session of the Synod of Bishops. "There is no longer a chosen people -- all men and women of all countries have become the chosen people."

      Bustros' remark drew swift and strong rebukes from Israeli spokesmen.

    • If you mean by Caliphate an EU-like borderless trade union of arabic speaking and majority muslim peoples, organized with freedom of religion as in Islamic Spain, I would say this would be a good thing for the region in bringing stability and a deterrent , even if financial, to western aggression. This is generally called self determination when not forced from above.

      Also recall that Shariah is a legal system based upon religious (natural law) precepts , BUT administered by judges , will leeway on sentencing, most of the extreme punishments overlap with the Jewish halaka -Leviticus from a time without prisons and borders, in which non Muslims are exempt, and emigration out of the jurisdiction was completely voluntary. I do not know of any Jewish or Islamic courts in today's era which apply the Leviticus punishments --excepting of course the terrorist entities armed and funded outside of the religious traditions. I would much prefer to be administred under a Jewish halaka or Islamic shariah court than by the corrupt elite 'justice' system of chuck schumer and dershowitz, which by the way has created unprecedented numbers of incarcerated , even in comparison to mao and stalin;s gulags.

    • I get the upper west side disdain for the religious preoccupations of fly over country gentiles and the shtetl orthodox , a kind of 'hold my nose' soft bigotry for the masses not smart enough to read or write for the NYT. But at least connect it to reality. Case in point, are the religious more violent than the secular, forgetting the obvious historical-political problems with that question, focus on the often cited example of women's rights, intimate partner violence., sexual harassment IN Europe it is not associated with 'progressive' values, quite the opposite:

      Despite stereotypes depicting Eastern and Southern European countries as having “macho” cultures, the European country with the lowest reported violence against women is Poland, with 19 percent. In fact, since 2005, Poland has had a dedicated Law on Domestic Violence and a nationwide program to increase awareness and provide support for abuse victims.

      The fact that the forward-thinking Nordic countries have such high rates of violence against women seems counterintuitive.

We as Jews are raised with the creed that "God gave us the land of Israel" in Genesis -- and that ethnically 'we are the chosen people." But actually -- and I could not believe my eyes when I saw this, I checked my reading with major scholars and they confirmed it -- actually God's "covenant" in Genesis, Exodus and Deuteronomy with the Jewish people is NOT ABOUT AN ETHNICITY....

      Bill Black: The New York Times Claims Opposing EU Austerity Leads to Anti-Semitism
      link to nakedcapitalism.com

      I once wrote a long piece about Yasser Arafat. One of his favorite sayings was, “We are not the red Indians.”

      I think the reason that the Palestinians weren’t the red Indians was that the Israelis weren’t the North Americans. Had they pursued a comprehensive campaign of extermination like the Americans and Australians did before them, then no one would be around to complain.

      ...

      You know, there’s an old joke: Three elderly Jewish Communists in the Bronx are talking. They’re in their eighties. One is in a wheelchair. So they say, “Abie Cohen, have you heard from him lately?” “Abie, he’s had some health problems but he’s living in Los Angeles in a nursing home, still working for socialism.” “All right, what about Mike Abramowitz, have you heard from him?” “Well, you know Mike is in rehab, he fell, he broke his hip, a lot of problems. But even in the nursing home he’s fighting for socialism!” So someone says, “What about Moe Goldberg?” “Oh, Moe, he moved to Israel, didn’t you know that?” “Well, is he fighting for socialism?” The guy answers, “In his own country? What kind of man do you think he is?!”

      So I think as Jewish humor often does, that captures the point that you made. I’ve actually had students say exactly this. They say, “How come in my high school we couldn’t sing Christmas carols; however, in Israel they can establish a religion?” And they believe that it was the Jews who brought this about in the United States. And are they wrong? No.

John McCain at that same border crossing only three months before.

  • Hamas is just as bad as ISIS and worse than Boko Haram -- Israeli government propaganda
    • Its sickening when religious people express hatred and bigotry as religiously sanctioned . This includes Muslims, Buddhists, etc and lately many liberal Christians.

      case in point, the ignorant 'christian' bigot Rod Dreher. Someone should write an analysis of his articles repeatedlu dripping with racial animus and incitement.

      Mark Brener, the alleged pimp at the center of the prostitution scandal engulfing Spitzer, is an Israeli.

      ...
      Spitzer, once seen as a strong candidate to be the first Jewish president, built his career as an anti-crime, anti-corruption crusader.
