  • Nationalism vs imagination -- Beinart and Vilkomerson square off over two-state solution
    • whoa, Bienart mentioned a Nakba Museum in Israel. We don't even have an African slave trade Holocaust Museum in America.

    • Even if you had a Kumbayyah moment in Israel resulting in a truly democratic multicultural state, the indigeneous in Palestine would still have an oppressed minority status governed under a corrupt one dollar one vote bureaucracy. No effective self determination , rule by a hostile elite, just as in America.

      I'm awaiting these progressives to bring up the other occupation.

    • I find the germans echoing the judgement of mj rosenberg, that max b has an animus of hate, to be verifiable, not by his call for an Israeli exodus back to europe, but by his comments in the interview above.

      Replace his discussion above's use of the word 'white' with 'Jew' , and he comes off as obsessively hateful as der sturmer.

      "More and more, I view the self-proclaimed anti-Zionist left as primarily being in the hate business, every bit as much as the "pro-Israel" right. The more virulent the attack on Israel and Israelis, the more enthusiastically they will endorse it. Blumenthal's book is all virulence and so they love it. Shavit's book, like The Crisis of Zionism by Peter Beinart, is infused with love of Israel so they hate it -- even though it advances arguments they, in theory, champion. Hate gets in the way."

      Why Jews Should Care About Ferguson, The Jewish Daily Forward

      Anti-Semitism is real, but it is no longer intrinsic to the systems of oppression that killed Michael Brown. Like it or not, then, most American Jews find ourselves on the side of privilege. We may be “off-white,” as some theorists have proposed, but we’re close enough. If we stand up for the underdog, it will be out of ethics, not self-interest.

      Yes, there are texts which speak of Jewish supremacy, of conquering everyone else, and of slavery, misogyny, and the rest. But exhortations of non-oppression of foreigners are more numerous

      Most important, I think, is Exodus 22:21: “Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner, for you were foreigners in Egypt.” Note the past tense. This is a text speaking to a people no longer victimized, but now with the power to victimize others. It is a text for our time.

      I cite these texts not for their authority but for their wisdom. They were written at a time in which the Land of Israel was a multiracial society. Jews were in power (sometimes) but non-Jews — “foreigners” — were always present.

      Who is Pruzansky and why should his views matter? He’s a pulpit rabbi in America, not an Israeli politician. He does not have a national following.

      But he is the spiritual leader of the largest synagogue in Teaneck in what may well be the biggest modern Orthodox suburban community in America. And the largely insouciant response among the 800 member families at his shul, Congregation Bnai Yeshurun, to the stream of similar commentary offered by the rabbi over the years on his blog and from the pulpit is a sign of where political discourse is in some corners of the American Jewish community — particularly in Orthodox synagogues, where right-wing views on Israel tend to dominate.

    • Agents of a foreign body politic:

      According to court filings, Dr. Amir Gat – an Israeli national – executed a Technology Control Plan (TCP) under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registration in order to participate in the U.S. taxpayer-funded JPL “Electrospray” space propulsion project at UCLA. The TCP obligates signers not to disclose ITAR – restricted technical data to foreign persons or countries without prior approval from the US State Department. Failure to comply is supposed to trigger criminal fines and penalties.

      Gat allegedly “stored project-related files and technical information on his personal laptop, rather than on his safeguarded office computer, in violation of the TCP and ITAR.” On May 25, 2010, a virus attacked project leader Dr. Sandra Troian’s computer network at Caltech, causing hundreds of project files to be uploaded in rapid succession to an unknown IP address outside of Caltech. Dr. Troian traced the virus that caused the network problems to Dr. Gat’s computer, and notified Caltech officials of this fact. On May 28, 2010, Dr. Gat admitted to Dr. Troian that he had been sharing details of the Electrospray Project with Dr. Daniel Weihs, his Ph.D. advisor at Technion without proper US government approval.

    • when fiction becomes memory, indeed history, is the central challenge of human consciousness in this epic.

      Only todays technology permits Orwellian simultaneous control of historical records ( eg news, media ) both contemporaneously , and backwards in time through deletion or removal of access, to previous records. And it may be a criminal act to question such edits, especially when they touch on ethnic or gender studies, eg: liberal fanaticism:

      This is why there is no cultural life now in the U.S. Why nothing is of interest coming from the major media in terms of cultural criticism. Why the graduates of the Ivy League with their A, A, A+ grades are complete cultural illiterates, etc. is because they are not being educated in any way to give respect to opposing view points.”

    • Mrs Cass Sunstein Powers is a fellow traveler of the Soros International Crisis group, a known British BP Aramco intelligence front, and most certainly knew she was lying when she asserted Assad, and not her mercenaries in Syria, deployed saudi supplied chemical weapons. This is a Cecil Rhodes imperialist takeover of the USA miliatry macine, using humanitarian rationales, to extend the cartel geography.

      A democratic one state of Israel is in their back pocket-- it will simultaneously destroy both Jewish and Palestine aspirations for self rule, sovereignty . Arabs will serve the same economic function as Hispanic immigrants do in much of the USA.

      Will soros funded electronic intifada mourn this outcome?

      -----------------------------

      Nor is the imperialist current within the human-rights industry a purely American phenomenon: the conquest of Iraq found whooping proponents in Bernard Kouchner, founder of Médecins Sans Frontières, now Sarkozy’s foreign minister, and Michael Ignatieff, also a former head of the Harvard’s Carr Center and poised to become Canada’s next prime minister. Gareth Evans, Australia’s former foreign minister and a grinning soft-peddler of Indonesia’s massacres in East Timor, is perhaps the leading intellectual proponent of the Responsibility to Protect, or R2P as it is cutely called, an attempt to embed humanitarian intervention into international law. Evans, who recently stepped down from leading the International Crisis Group, laments the Iraq War chiefly for the way it has soiled the credibility of his pet idea.

    • Taylor is correct to identify religion as a component of behavior . And it is not Islamaphobic or antisemetic to see the connections. But unfortunately he slanders Islam , tells a knowing lie. Islam categorically condemsn FGM Female Genital Mutiliation (although it does permit a cosmetic circumcision procedre much less invasive than male circumcision in the usa). Homor killings and domestic violence are strictly prohibted in Islam , period. And rates of domestic violence are much higher in majority Christian countries than in IMuslim majority nations. In historic Islam there is a special tax for non-Muslims, but it is less than the mandatory tax for Muslims, and non-Muslims are exempt from military conscription but this is hardly relevant since no Islamic state ruled by traditional shariah exists today. Indeed the same political regulations prohibit usury and income / retail taxes, only a tax on unused wealth is allowed.

      Weiss and others should counter the slander with an Islamic scholars correction rather than point to the nonsensical metaphysics of all religions.

      3) was the policeman killed on entry? if not, the synagogue was unguarded
      4) evidently the synagogue is known to be mainly english speaking , and yards away from the place where the Palestinian was kidnapped

  • Yad Vashem
    • The death camp at Treblinka

      Each group of women or men were hurried along from the rear by some German and very often the Kommandant himself – Franz accompanied by a dog. As they approached the gas chamber the people began to back away in terror.

      Oftentimes they tried to turn back. At that point lashes and clubs were used. Franz immediately set upon the condemned his dog which was specially trained to snap at their sex organs. At each gas chamber there were 5-6 Germans besides the “motorists” with their dogs. With clubs and lashes they drove the people into the corridor of the gas chamber and then into the chambers.

      In this the Germans would compete with the “motorists” in brutality towards the people selected to die. Marchenko for instance had a sword with which he mutilated the people. He cut the breasts of women. After the chambers were filled they slammed shut with hermetically sealed doors. The “motorists” Marchenko and Nikolay would turn on the motors.

  • Why I confronted Gregor Gysi
    • Terrible hypocrisy Blumenthal , unlike Ellis, has branded GA an anti-semite, and asked others to boycott any discussion with him, the same behavior of Gregor Gysi, If Aztmon is indeeed a hater of Jews we could understand this better with a discussion by his accusers with the accused, rather than a slander made in public without rebuttal:

      Real News
      Max Blumenthal: And one person--I think one of the leading anti-Semitic critics of Israel--you couldn't even call him a critic of Israel. He's an ex-Israeli who pretends to be an anti-Zionist but is actually just a pure anti-Semite and who believes that all of the problems of Israel flow not from colonialism but from Judaism, is Gilad Atzmon. And I signed a Jewish letter denouncing him and basically telling him to get lost. There's been a Palestinian letter organized by Ali Abunimah and, you know, a who's who of Palestine solidarity activists who say anti-Semitic freaks, get the hell away from us; we don't want any part of you. And there have been other efforts to castigate people who have advanced anti-Semitic critiques of Israel and of Jews in general.

    • Meanwhile the UK definition of a hate crime extends 'Jewish privilege' to include assault and battery on an elderly member of parliament

      ----.A charge of religiously aggravated assault against him was dropped.

      A former civil servant and BBC manager, Masterson , 39, ran at Mr Galloway while the MP posed for pictures with two members of the public in Notting Hill, west London on August 29.

      Masterson, who converted to Judaism, punched the MP repeatedly and then kicked him in the face after he was knocked to the ground.

      Masterson then pushed away another man who tried to intervene.

      Mr Galloway spent a night in St Mary's Hospital Paddington following the attack.

      During an earlier hearing in September, prosecutor Douglas Adams quoted Masterson as saying he "carried out the attack because he felt the victim was an enemy of Judaism".

      "“We all have pepper spray, knives – even brass knuckles,” he said. “I keep a baseball bat by my bed, because you never know when, or if, you are going to get attacked. You always have to be prepared.”

      Green’s friend David Bromberg, who said Arabs had recently attacked his brother’s car while his infant twin sons were inside, said he faulted police for the crisis.

      “We are afraid because our police aren’t doing a good job,” he said. “Mostly, they arrest Jews for spraying graffiti [in ‘price-tag’ attacks].”

      Bromberg added that he felt he could be attacked without warning at any moment.

      “I’m afraid an Arab will come and kill me; that’s what they do,” he said. “So I have to walk around knowing they want to kill us.”

      Asked if he felt safe, Meir, a 20-year-old IDF conscript of five months who said he could not reveal his last name due to army policy, reached into his right pocket.

      “When I go outside, I carry this,” he said, pulling out a silver utility knife. “I don’t know who is going to jump me. They want the Jews dead and out of al-Aksa [Mosque] and Israel.”

      Despite repeated requests, Meir said, his commanding officer has refused to issue him a standard machine gun “because of where I am psychologically.”

      “They won’t give one to me right now because they think I will use it the wrong way,” he explained."

      Hillary has never paid a political price for her ties to right-wing Israel supporters, though she has reaped the usual benefits. Might the American political culture be ready to turn on this, at least to the extent that she will no longer get a free pass? The Twittersphere agog at the Sheldon and Haim show was largely a liberal Jewish one, journalists and writers who are hardly hostile to Israel, but are increasingly dismayed as the Israeli right wing entrenches itself in power while becoming ever more extreme. Its numbers are small, but it speaks for an influential slice of Democratic Party elite opinion—supportive of the two state solution, of negotiating with Iran. A recent J Street-sponsored poll found that 84 percent of American Jews backed an Iran deal which restricts Iranian nuclear enrichment and subjected Iran’s nuclear sites to inspection. But Adelson and Saban do not.

      Where does Hillary stand, with her financial backers or the more mainstream opinion of the Democratic Party? It’s a question worth watching in the presidential year to come.

  • What is the vision of Jews who want to replace Al Aqsa mosque with temple?
    • Interesting the professors make the case that Gentiles used non-universal values, that is , a kind of in group chosen-ness, to resist the predations of the intermediaries, and this was the source of an anti-market racial hatred, or was it exactly the reverse, vice versa ?

      "is often referred to as “bonding” (restricted to homogenous groups) as opposed to “bridging” (across diverse social groups) social capital .. or “limited” as opposed to “generalized” morality -

      Does this have an implication for Palestine, is it not true that the physical construction of the displacing gentrification settlements is left to the blue collared arab workers, while the intermediaries will eventually live there ?

      How much of this is just 'anti-market' sentiment?

    • This does not seem to be an issue or Israeli religious practice, rather it may be an American led political provocation, and lastly an important security concern:

      1) 3 out of 3 interviewed above are American Jews (living in Israel). The ZOA and AJC are American institutions apparently to the right even of the Likud government.

      2) Islamic law permits Jews to pray in Mosques but rabbis consistently for ages do not permit it under Jewish halaka law, hence this is ethno nationalism, not Judaism.

      3) Jordanian and Muslim concern over ews praying in the Mosque compound perhaps see this not as an Islamic issue, but as a political one, as Muslim authorities retain some sovereignty there.

      4) The Kahanist zionist Jewish extremists are armed and violent, there is perhaps a netanyahu concern that these armed settlers may initiate another msss murder

    • This conflict is as old as modernity:

      "Overall, historians agree that modernity is rooted in traditionallyJewish social functions and attribute to Jews of 18th- 20th century Eastern Europe the role as a driving forceof capitalism and market development (e.g., Sombart 1913; Jacobs 1919; Veblen 1919; Slezkine 2004;Botticini and Eckstein 2005, Muller 2010).
      ..
      Finally, we suggest a plausible mechanism that can explain the long-run effects of the Pale. Weargue that the non-Jewish population developed a special anti-market culture and bonding trust amongrepresentatives of their own group at the time when Jews and non-Jews lived side-by-side in towns andshtetls inside the Pale. Historical sources document hostility, rivalry, and little social interaction beyondmarket transactions between Jews and local non-Jewish population (Hoffman 1997, Slezkine 2004). The presence of a rival group in close proximity with alien religion, traditions and language, and with a veryspecific social role as market intermediary, created pressure on the non-Jews to unite against the Jews.This social pressure had two important consequences for the non-Jewish population within the Pale. First,ethnic antagonism between the two groups led to the development of within-group solidarity and trust. Asthis kind of trust developed in opposition to the rival group, it is often referred to as “bonding” (restrictedto homogenous groups) as opposed to “bridging” (across diverse social groups) social capital (Fukuyama1995; Putnam 2000), or “limited” as opposed to “generalized” morality (Tabellini 2008). Second, sinceJews as a group represented a liberal pro-market force by their distinct traditional occupations, ethnichostility of the non-Jewish population against Jews triggered the development of an anti-market cultureamong the non-Jewish population as anti-market sentiment was equated with anti-Jewish sentiment. Weargue that both the anti-market culture and within-group bonds have persisted among descendants of thenon-Jewish population up to the present day"

In this sense the anti-theists are correct. Islam is the mother of all bad ideas , that is ideas resistant to the elite religion.

      Even progressives are beginning to see the spiritual basis of the conflict, and Israel's attack on Al Aqsa is a clear manifestation of it being the spear tip of the global managerial elite.

      " This is precisely why the ongoing US [ anglo -israeli ] military interventions in the Islamic world are, despite the rhetoric emanating from the White House, a war against Islam. The acceptance of Western liberal values is essential for the perpetuation of capitalism and many of these individualistic values contravene some of the collectivist values found in Islam."

    • Why I don’t believe people who say they loathe Islam [ or Zionism ]but not Muslims [Zionists ]
      Andrew Brown

      It is a trope among people who loathe and fear Islam that their fear and loathing has nothing in common with racism because Islam is not a race, the implication being that hating Muslims is rational and wise whereas hating black people is deeply irrational and stupid.

      ...

      But if we allow that the crimes of Stalin, or of Mao, were comparable to those of the transatlantic slave trade in ambition if not in duration, they are not excused in the slightest by saying that the most terrible atheist dictators were not very racist at all.

      Stalin and Mao would have enthusiastically endorsed Sam Harris when he wrote that “there are some beliefs so terrible that we are justified in killing people just for holding them”, just as they would have endorsed his defence of torturing prisoners.

      In the end, the position of people who claim that hatred of Islam is somehow superior to hatred of black people is pretty much like Alan Partridge boasting that at least he’s not David Brent.

      Tracing The Antinomian Trajectory Within Sabbatean Messianism
      Written by Deborah Pardo-Kaplan

      Antinomianism has been defined as the "subversion of a religious or moral code." 1 On a superficial level, this may be perceived as motivated only by a rebellious attitude towards author­ity. Yet what might outwardly appear as subversive behavior may truly be an inner desire to affirm religious truth as the protagonists define it, or as they interpret a particular religious tradition.

      From January 17 to 21, the Germans marched approximately 56 thousand prisoners out of Auschwitz and its sub-camps in evacuation columns mostly heading west, through Upper and Lower Silesia. Two days later, they evacuated 2 thousand prisoners by train from the sub-camps in Świętochłowice and Siemianowice. The main evacuation routes led to Wodzisław Sląski and Gliwice, where the many evacuation columns were merged into rail transports. From the sub-camp in Jaworzno, 3,200 prisoners made one of the longest marches—250 km. to Gross-Rosen Concentration Camp in Lower Silesia.

      German Postwar Diary

      We arrived in the city of Heilbronn by the Neckar, In the end we counted 240,000 men, who lived on the naked ground and without cover.

      Spring and summer were mild this year, but we were starving. At 6;00 am we received coffee, at noon about a pint of soup and 100 grams of bread a day........

      The 'Amis' gave us newspapers in German language, describing the terrors of the concentration camps. We did not believe any of it. We figured the Americans only wanted to demoralize us further.

      The fields on which we lived belonged to the farmers of the area...soon nothing of the clover and other sprouting greens were left, and the trees were barren. We had eaten each blade of grass.....

      Sometimes it happened that groups of our own men were gathered and transported away. We presumed they were discharged to go home, and naturally, we wished to be among them. Much later we heard they were sent to labor camps! My mother's cousin, feared that he would be drafted into the Hitler Youth SS, he volunteered to the marines, in 1945 his unit was in Denmark. On April 20th they were captured by the Americans. his experience in the POW camp was identical that of my brother's. They lived in open fields, did not receive and food and water the first six days, and starved nearly to death. German wives and mothers who wanted to throw loaves of bread over the fence, were chased off. The prisoners, just to have something to chew, scraped the bark from young trees. my cousins job was to report each morning how many had died during the night. "and these were not just a few!" he adds to his report he wrote me.

      American Guard Account

      In Andernach about 50,000 prisoners of all ages were held in an open field surrounded by barbed wire. The women were kept in a separate enclosure that I did not see until later. The men I guarded had no shelter and no blankets. Many had no coats. They slept in the mud, wet and cold, with inadequate slit trenches for excrement. It was a cold, wet spring, and their misery from exposure alone was evident.

      Even more shocking was to see the prisoners throwing grass and weeds into a tin can containing a thin soup. They told me they did this to help ease their hunger pains. Quickly they grew emaciated. Dysentery raged, and soon they were sleeping in their own excrement, too weak and crowded to reach the slit trenches. Many were begging for food, sickening and dying before our eyes. We had ample food and supplies, but did nothing to help them, including no medical assistance.

    • "I dont like to mention it but .."

      We were sharing a pastrami sandwich and pickles at a Los Angeles landmark: Canter’s Deli on Fairfax. I was 24; she was nearly 50 years older, with a piercing voice as loud as her flaming red wig.

      Her name was Eva Rubenstein Grant, and she was a little-known [meyer lansky linked strip] nightclub manager the morning of Nov. 24, 1963, when her brother Jack Ruby left the apartment they shared in Dallas and blasted his way into infamy by fatally shooting Lee Harvey Oswald.

      ...Chicago Mafia figures told him Ruby was sent to Texas to run nightclubs that were fronts for illegal gambling operations.

      It was a quintessentially Jewish response, albeit delivered in Eva’s hybrid Chicago-Dallas accent. And the Rubensteins were a staunchly Jewish family, a fact that may have played a role in Ruby’s killing of President John F. Kennedy’s alleged assassin.

      “I was shocked,” Silverman said. “I visited him the next day in jail, and I said, ‘Why, Jack, why?’ He said, ‘I did it for the American people.’ ”

      I interrupted Silverman, pointing out that other reports had Ruby saying he did it “to show that Jews had guts.” The elderly rabbi sighed. “Yes, he mentioned that. But I don’t like to mention it. I think he said, ‘I did it for the Jewish people.’ But I’ve tried to wipe that statement from my mind.”

  • Why are liberal Zionists embracing Matti Friedman's Islamophobia?
    • or put differently, rage born of a deeply ingrained sense of supremacist, narcissistic entitlement resulting in a pathological hatred of the Other , and sorry, but it exists outside of zionism, and typical of white collar manic (short term-ism) criminality we associate with modern American elite financial manipulations.

      Narcissistic Rage and the Sense of Entitlement

      When the expectation is strong but meets with frustration, the response is often narcissistic rage — whether in Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality or any other superficially discrete category of diagnosis. The person may spew venom at a friend or relation; she may become violent, either destroying objects in her environment or launching a physical assault on someone nearby; he may seek to belittle or destroy someone whom he envies. In these cases, the element of rage is obvious, on the surface.

      Sometimes it’s less easy to detect. A person in manic flight may not appear to be enraged but nonetheless expresses hatred for the frustrating limitations of reality by defying them — going on a spending spree; attempting to do something all at once (rather than slowly over time) in order to get the desired benefit right now; behaving in omnipotent ways, as if they held magic powers, because they hate the demands of hard work. In other words, I’m suggesting that most manic episodes in part reflect a hatred of and narcissistic rage against the frustrations of reality.

  • Al Aqsa mosque is closed off for first time in 47 years as tensions flare
    • There is an alternative minority view, inspired perhaps by the crusader maps showing jerusalem (meaning holy city) to be present day Istanbul, and that ancient rome is a much later fabrication.
      Any person who has inspected the medeival dated churches adjacent to the so called anceint roman coliseum in rome, notes immediately the identical construction methods and materials, a radical theory proposed by the russian historians in the New Chronology, eg:

      To repeat: the original Biblical Jerusalem (the city of Yoros) is situated on the eastern, Asiatic shore of Bosphorus, closer to the Black Sea, very near to the Beykoz mountain (Golgotha) [ЗИ] ([FJ] ‘Forgotten Jerusalem. Istanbul in the light of New Chronology’ G.B.Nosovskiy, A.T.Fomenko. – translator’s note)

      which would imply that the OT is Hellenistic restatement of Babylonian myths and histories in Judaized form:, with the Septugint the original, and the Masoretic text and late medeival rabbinic fabrication, see Lemke , copenhagen school, biblical minimalism

      Many of the Old Testament passages in the New Testament are either direct quotes or paraphrase from the Septuagint, not the Hebrew Masoretic text. Textual variations between the Hebrew and Greek Old Testament quotes are for the most part minor, but from time to time they will diverge; in that case which one should one prefer? I would suggest the older source text should be given preference. This makes sense in light of the fact that the Septuagint was produced about two to three centuries before the birth of Christ. The Masoretic text would not be compiled by Jewish scholars until the 600s to 900s. This makes the Greek Septuagint almost a thousand years older than the Hebrew Masoretic text!

      Bibi, who spent many years in the United States, is surely cognizant of what his "grassy knoll" reference connotes. You can argue it was just an infelicitous phrase, or that Bibi was referring to himself, not Obama. Maybe so. But what if, say, an Iranian official, even a low-ranking one, had said such a thing? The uproar would be deafening. And so the question must be asked: was Bibi threatening the President of the United States?

This was apparent in the Anti-Defamation League's June 2002 survey of Anti-Semitism in America, which also found that 20 percent of the American public agrees that, "Jews have too much power in the U.S. today."

I suggest instead the possibility that multiculturalism itself is problematic because it so easily accommodates Zionism (and other troublesome ideologies).

What is the point of using multicultural apparatuses to promote Israel as the apogee of Jewishness? -

      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?

    • 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.

      "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 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.
