  • Palestinian paramedic Razan al-Najjar was 'deliberately and fatally shot' by Israeli sniper -- B'Tselem
    • While it is terrible to grow up Israeli, Bennett is in many regards more N. American than Israeli. He has grown up in NJ and Montreal while he has lived in NY for a long time. He had many opportunities to desocialize himself from the racist ideas and false beliefs that are commonly held by Zionist Jews.

    • I don't have much coherent memory of the killing or disfiguring of Rachel Corrie and other ISM activists in 2003-2004, but I have looked at these and similar incidents like the murder of Hadeel al-Hashlamoun and like the murders I committed during Cast Lead in la longue durée back to the original genocide and theft of country in 1947-8.

      Among the Zionist leaders there has always been a feeling that 1947-8 was not really completed and that the state must continue to push the limit until the natives are completely expelled or exterminated. To this end the state uses its state apparatus continue to probe the limits of the acceptable.

      The boundary is slowly being pushed until the final expulsion or extermination. There was a similar gradualism (albeit for slightly different reasons) in Germany under the National Socialist regime.

  • 'Disappearing Palestine' maps must spotlight Jaffa
    • In Ottoman Law there wasn't really a western concept of state land unless one considers awqaf land to be state land. Awqaf land is land owned by private religious endowments. Awqaf land is typically donated to a religious endowment in order to protect it from government seizure.

      jon s dishonestly calls communal land (essentially a private trust established for the benefit of the villages) state land in order to justify theft by white racist genocidal Euro colonial-settler invaders.

      This is an important point. 1947-8 was a genocide planned in cold blood since the 1880s. A criminal genocidal conglomeration does not get to benefit from its crime of genocide. There is neither laches nor statute of limitations in the crime of genocide. A criminal genocidal conglomeration never ceases to be a criminal genocidal conglomeration. It must be removed to provide relief to the victims of genocide.

  • Palestinian medic, 21, is killed by Israeli sniper as she tends wounded in Gaza
    • Under orders I murdered unarmed Palestinian men, women, and children (including a woman and the child in her arms) during Cast Lead. I don't consider Hamas to be anywhere close to the evil of the IDF. As far as I can tell, a Zionist froths at the mention of Hamas because Hamas unlike the PA has resisted enmeshment in the Zionist system. In retrospect (I used to be Zionist), that resistance seems to be the original sin of Hamas from the Zionist standpoint.

  • Israeli government justifies killing child protesters in Gaza: They're not in school
    • The more I study Jewish behavior from the early 19th century, the more I become convinced that Jewish violence increases continuously with the collapse of Commonwealth Poland and with the vanishing of the pre-modern Jewish economic niche.

      Jewish media power covers up this increasing violence against non-Jews, but if we want to see a solution to the problem of Zionist criminality, we must talk about this history honestly and Mondoweiss should stop censoring facts.

      In the 20th century Jewish Soviet leaders orchestrated and perpetrated genocidal violence that starts in the 1920s. Zionists catch up with Jewish Soviet crimes when they commit cold-blooded genocide in 47-8 and continue to perpetrate genocide right before our eyes in the slaughter of Gaza children.

      In other words racist murderous Jews have a much worse history than flying planes, blowing themselves up indiscriminately in order to kill innocent people, firing rockets indiscriminately into civilian areas, or using children as human shields.

      I grew up in Israel. From at least kindergarten onward we are indoctrinated that non-Jews lust for Jewish blood and that Palestinians are worst. Many Jewish children are instructed in the use of firearms to kill Palestinians.

      My thinking was not particularly human when I served in the IDF and under orders murdered unarmed Palestinian men, women, and children including a women with a child in her arms.

      I and the other soldiers in my unit were without doubt legitimate targets for the Palestinian resistance.

  • The 'Jewish nation' is the central myth of Zionism. It needs to be dismantled.
    • In theory it was hard to change one's nation or nationality in the USSR (there was neither Soviet nation nor Soviet nationality), but in reality if one broke with Jewish identity in every way, shape, and form, it appears to have been reasonably straightforward.

      I became acquainted with a non-Jewish mathematician from Moscow State University. He asserted that there were officially only two Jews in the math department, but of the non-Jews in the math department, all except him and another department member had Jewish ancestry.

    • The seminar focused on E Europe, where the idea of being a Pole, Hungarian, or Russian of Mosaic persuasion or faith did not make sense. Ashkenazi applies from Alsace to Ukraine. Posquières, Trèves, Troyes, or Provence in general are barely Ashkenazi areas. In these areas Jews spoke a dialect of French even if they were within the Ashkenazi orbit halakhically.

      The Marxists would argue that German and French Ashkenazim of Mosaic faith proved the economic class identity because these Jews were trying to find a way to maintain their business networks of interest. In many ways, the Marxist analysis makes the most sense.

    • What nonsense!

      Zionism has little connection to Jewish religion except to justify depredations on non-Jews by slicing and dicing Judaic scripture.

      Zionism is just another expression of Central and East European ethnoracial politics.

      The obsession with Palestine is something new. Before Zionism E. European Jews had little interest in Palestine and were likely to be insulted when someone claimed that they were aliens in Europe and should return to Palestine, which was mostly a place were old people went to die and to which eccentrics were dispatched.

      There were a good number of Jerusalems among the world Jewish community: Vilna the Jerusalem of Lithuania (or North), Amsterdam the Jerusalem of the West, Saloniki la chica Jerusalem, Zakho the Jerusalem of Assyria, Sarajevo the Jerusalem of the Balkans, Carpentras the Jerusalem of Provence, Djerba the Jerusalem of N. Africa, etc. Palestinians unlike Jews loved and cared for Jerusalem, which hosted several important Islamic schools but no comparable Jewish schools (after 1127) until genocidal racist Zionists began their invasion in the 19th century.

      The E. European obsession with Palestine seems to begin after the Czarist government at Jewish request changed the official term for Jew from жид (Żyd), which had no obvious association with Palestine, to еврей (hebrajski), which was compatible with a sort of secular Hebraism.

      Not only was the Czarist government indifferent to the ridiculous mythological associations of еврей, but it also had no use for the Polish legal concept of religious estate (сословие). Yet the name change seems to have fit with general Czarist policy.

      How did the name change fit with Czarist policy? The Czarist government realized that confining “Jewish” Slavo-Turks to Czarist Poland (their native homeland) was not working out and envisaged benefits from distributing them throughout the Empire and assimilating them to local peoples.

      Reidentifying Slavo-Turks as a secular Hebraic population with no homeland within the Empire was one way of justifying such developing Czarist policy toward “Jewish” Slavo-Turks.

      [Note that Czarist policy toward Jews of other ethnic groups was very different.]

    • Descendants of Medieval Yiddish (and Slavic) speaking Jewish communities are ethnic Slavo-Turks, and I suppose the nostalgic identification an English-speaking American Jewish descendant might have with his Yiddish-speaking ancestors or with Hebrew (relexified Yiddish) speaking Israelis is rather like the nostalgic identification an English-speaking Sicilian American might have with real Sicilians in Sicily.

      Most American Sicilians recognize that the American and Sicilian mafias are criminal and evil. I view American and Israeli Zionism in same way. I have to admit that I don't have much identification anymore with Jewishness in E. Europe.

      As I have learned more about the history of Jewish exploitation of the peasantry in Poland, Belarus, and the Ukraine, I have come to identify more with the victims of Jewish exploitation than with the Jewish exploiters. I think I have some similarity to the Northerners, who migrated to South after the Civil War and who identified more with freed slaves than with white former Confederates.

    • From a seminar I gave a few years ago on Jewish identity in E. Europe and the former Czarist Empire.

      In the 19th century among Jews from Alsace to the Ukraine, we see 4 competing “Jewish” identities, which are the following:

      * the traditional religious communal identity,

      * the Yiddish ethnic cultural identity, which targeted cultural autonomy in historic Poland,

      * the class identity, which was developed by Jewish radicals and Bolsheviks, and

      * the Zionist ethnonational identity, which is used to justify theft of Palestine and the genocide of the native population.

      When Yiddishists and Bundists claimed that Yiddish-speakers constituted an ethnic group within Poland and said of non-Yiddish-speakers that זיי זענען נישט אידן ווי אונדז (they are not Jews like us — a comment made by eminent Yiddish historian Israel Abrahams), they were saying something obvious.

      1. When Jewish Bolsheviks created a Jewish (еврейский actually Hebraic) nationality (not nation) within the Soviet Union for people descended from Yiddish-speakers but not for Jews of other ethnic groups (Tatars, Georgians, Persians, etc.),

      2. when Birobidzhan was only meant for Yiddish-speakers, and

      3. when the Евсекция focused only on Yiddish-speakers,

      such decisions had some logic.

      [In the Czarist Empire Yiddish Jews had been associated mostly with a specific financial commercial niche, and most Yiddish Jews quite swiftly renounced language and religion -- much faster than -- for example -- ethnic Poles. Yiddish Jews and Russianized former Yiddish-speaking Jews continued to collaborate in their financial-commercial niche across the language divide.]

      When Zionists fabricated a pan-Judaic ethnonationality (even though Yiddish-speakers and Kypczak speaking Polish Jewish Tatars hated one another†) in order to claim Palestine from the native people, they duplicated the German National Socialist concept of the Aryan race even if the racist genocidal Zionist (Jewish National Socialist) idea preceded the racist genocidal German National Socialist idea.††

      Yet Zionist writings are very clear that the white racist genocidal Eastern Europeans considered members of non-European Jewish ethnic groups to be racially inferior and not racially desirable immigrants for the campaign to steal Palestine and to destroy or to drive out the native Palestinians.†††

      It is time to bury the Zionist (Jewish National Socialist) idea of ethnic or secular Jew and to treat as utterly contemptible any progressive supporting this stupid idea.

      The correspondence between Zionist (Jewish National Socialist) ideas and German National Socialist ideas is obvious to anyone with half a brain, and genuine progressives opposed to Zionism and the continued existence of the racist genocidal State of Israel have to start hammering this point in order to delegitimize both Israel and also anyone that continues to support this disgusting state.

      As for the connecting Israel and Zionism to US white racist ideology, it should be clear at this point that the State of Israel has become an intrinsic component of US white racist ideology.

      Most American Jews today espouse the Zionist ethnonational identity because Israel put a lot of effort into infiltrating and eventually dominating Jewish education in the United States.

      Notes

      † I just reread סיפור פשוט, in which out of nowhere Agnon defames Polish Jewish Tatars.

      †† Haaretz recently covered Nordau’s racist belief linking progress and genocide.

      The author seems to be unaware of the friendly correspondence between Nordau and Thomas Dixon, author of The Klansman, the book on which the movie Birth of a Nation is based.

      ††† My parents certainly viewed my nominally Jewish and Muslim Algerian ex-girlfriends to be our racial inferiors. It’s a common belief among Israeli E. European “Jewish” invaders.

      BTW, E. European “Jews” and German National Socialists had similar negative views toward Slavs. I can produce quotes in which a nominally Jewish historian describes Yiddish speakers as the cultural wall of civilization against against Slavic un-culture or barbarism.

      Columbia has excellent Jewish studies scholars. I don’t understand why Edward Said never availed himself of Columbia’s Jewish studies resources when he was a professor at Columbia. He could have made his critique of Zionism and Orientalism much stronger if he had broadened his knowledge.

  • Thousands demand the right to return as smoke envelops Gaza on a new 'bloody Friday'
    • Why do the Gazans have no brains? For Mayhem apparently because they don't accept that racist genocidal "Jewish" settler colonist invaders should be able to get away with stealing from the goyim.

      The spirit of my grandfather is still happily ensconced among those that cling to Jewish identity.

      I wrote in Jerusalem at a breaking point (October 5, 2015):

      From the standpoint of greedy robbers, Palestine was just low hanging fruit at the end of the 19th and early 20th century. (My grandfather definitely believed that a Jew should get to keep anything stolen fair and square from a goy. So much for reforming Jews.)

  • Ahed Tamimi has polarized western opinion -- but stirred some liberals to solidarity
    • I was disgusted because moderators were filtering comments directed to known historical facts that are completely undisputed while the moderators persistently allow Zionist propagandists to make completely false and ridiculous claims.

    • When I was at Columbia, I took a good number of American history courses. I focused on slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and post-Reconstruction Southern Redemption ideology.

      Comparative analysis is a major component of the modern study of history.

      Zionism is itself a form of white racist genocidal European colonialism and should be scorned for that reason alone, but the similarity of white racist Southern Redemption ideology to white racist Zionist Jewish redemption ideology is most impressive.

  • Lorde didn't bow to pressure, she rose to the occasion
  • Why liberal Zionists have nothing to say about Ahed Tamimi's slap and arrest
    • Jack Green believes delusional crap.

      Green, Mooser, and I all descend from E. European Jewish communities that descend wholly from Slavs, Turks, Greeks, Germanic groups, Tatars, etc. that converted to Judaism since late antiquity.

      Our connection to Palestine is wholly fictional. It is hard to find Jews of E. European descent in Palestine before the 1700, and they only came because the gradual collapse of Poland into a failed state was associated with economic decline.

      Jews began to have difficulties with the Palestinian population when E. Europeans like my grandfather began to arrive for the express purpose of stealing the country and committing genocide on the native population.

      As supporters of Palestinians we must be completely explicit on this point. Zionism and Zionists have no redeeming qualities whatsoever and should be equated with US white racists that want the return of black slavery.

      I have convinced my sister to leave Israel. Within a few months, I will have no known relatives in Israel.

  • As battle rages in UK Labour Party, Moshe Machover expelled after asserting 'Anti-Zionism does not equal anti-Semitism'
    • I don’t buy the we didn’t know it was wrong then idea, it seems to me to be a barrier to self knowledge for westerners, but for people who are invested in the idea of their superiority, advancement, moral perfection, standard bearers of our glorious future there are somethings they would rather not know or even consider….

      It took a long time to develop understanding that slavery is wrong.

      Even if the understanding is lacking, a legal system may identify a terminus a quo from which a certain act becomes a criminal or a civil violation.

  • Feel-good Gaza poster in NY window draws feel-bad response from neighbor
    • By the way, in the first sentence I meant moderators and not commentators.

    • I could certainly reply to all the Zio nonsense of the Mondoweiss comment section and refute it, but the Mondoweiss commentators allow the posting of all sorts of Zio propaganda but filter out comments that diverge from the common Zio narrative or from completely erroneous racist Jewish beliefs.

      Professor Yosef Yerushalmi used to chair the program in Jewish Studies in Columbia. The program probably outshines all other Jewish studies program in the US and in the world -- especially those which like those in Israel mostly teach propaganda.

      The first 2 pages of the article linked below discuss Yerushalmi's description of the disconnect between modern critical scientific history and the common beliefs of modern Jews, who include the moderators of the Mondoweiss comments section. Mondoweiss moderators enforce these false and erroneous beliefs by allowing Zios to post all sorts of ridiculous drivel but filtering out comments that attempt to bring factual history (instead of propaganda history) into the discussion.

    • I have a PhD from Columbia in Jewish Studies.

      Zionism is a particularly vicious form of 19th century-style white racist European genocidal colonialism in which European invaders destroy or expel a native population in order to create space to move in white racist Europeans and possibly a favored non-European population to play a servile role.

      There is no place on the planet for such an ideology any more than there is a place for 19th century-style white racist enslavement of people that descend from sub-Saharan African populations.

    • Jack Green provides an example of nitpicking stupid argument of Zios that have no valid response.

      "Effective or substantial control" legally does not mean "total or complete control".

      By Jack Green's argument Hitler could respond to criticism of his regime's occupation of the former territory of Czechoslovakia by asking, "What occupation? If there were a genuine occupation, Reinhard Heydrich could not have been assassinated."

  • On empathy, Yom Kippur, and the NFL
    • Karp po żydowsku seems to be a relatively new name.

      In Germany I have seen served gefüllter Fisch mit Gemüse nach jüdischer Art, gefüllter Fisch mit Gemüse nach italienischer Art, and gefüllter Fisch mit Gemüse nach griechischer Art, all being more or less the same.

      As a Polish dish it is very much a Christmas dish, and Christmas Carp may be sliced or ground as is the case of karp po żydowsku.

      The fixation with eating carp (not my favorite fish) is also found in Slovakia.

      Here is a Polish recipe for Jewish Carp which clearly is not any form of chopped gefüllter Fisch or gefilte fish.

      Jewish carp

      1 carp (1.5 kg)

      800 g of onions

      1 carrot

      1 parsley

      ½ of celery

      1 spoonful of butter

      1 bay leaf

      4 seeds of pepper

      4 seeds of allspice

      salt

      Dress the fish, remove scales, cut it open and remove inner organs. Rinse thoroughly, cut into slices, sprinkle with salt and leave for 30 minutes. Peel vegetables, rinse with water and dice onions. Cover vegetables and onion with 1 litre of water, add fish head and tail, bay leaf, allspice and pepper seeds. Cook for 30 minutes. Add slices of fish and cook for another 30 minutes. Put slices of cooked fish on a platter. Pressing hard, strain broth and pour it over slices of carp. Serve hot with boiled potatoes or chill and serve cold with challah.

      Note that challah is actually the pagan braided bread offering to the goddess or witch Frau Holle.

      Ground Christmas carp became a popular dish for meatless Friday among Polish Catholics.

      Fish is of course an ancient symbol of Christ and the Greek word for fish is treated as an the initials of Jesus Christ God and Savior.

      Obviously, Polish Jews were completely descended from local converts to Judaism, and the Rabbis had to create reasons why their folk culture, which was wholly pagan or (obsolete) Christian was really Jewish.

      For example the Rabbis spread the story that Jews ate ground fish on Friday not out of respect for Jesus but in order to avoid selecting out fish bones -- an action which counts as the work of selection.

      As the Christian or pagan practice became obsolete, the practice, which was questionably Jewish, became wholly Jewish.

  • Do not turn the Balfour Declaration into a holy Jewish text
    • Civil Rights was a well understood term in 1917 in the English-speaking world. The US Congress had used the term in the title of the 1866 Civil Rights Act, and there was an important Congressional debate that was extremely clear about what Civil Rights meant. Walter Bagehot, who was editor of The Economist from 1860-1877 wrote over 40 essays on the US Civil War and its aftermath for The Economist. The British understood the term Civil Rights at least as well as the Americans.

  • Balfour Declaration, now 100, was 'gun pointed at heads' of Palestinians -- Khalidi
    • The ancient Judaic attitude to Eretz Yisrael was more like "It's a place where important religious events took place, but it's not a place which I need to visit or where I need to live."

      Philo seems never to have visited the Jerusalem Temple but was apparently happy to make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Leontopolis.

      The attitude definitely persisted until Zionist indoctrination took hold. Just grab an anthology that contains "Tevye Goes to Palestine" by Sholem Aleichem. Tevye never went.

      Some may quibble that the original Yiddish title uses אֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל, but I asked my grandfather, and he claimed Palestine was a correct translation because Ost Yiddish speakers accented the last syllable when they meant Land of Israel (a religious term) and accented the first syllable when they meant Palestine/Palestina (a secular term). West Yiddish speakers tended to use Palestina for the secular sense as do older Ost Yiddish texts. In Ost Yiddish אֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל replaced Palestina when Yiddishists became hostile to daytshmerizms.

  • Between our life and our mother Algeria, we chose our mother: Excerpt from 'Inside the Battle of Algiers: Memoir of a Woman Freedom Fighter'
    • Zionism is a particularly vicious form of 19th century-style white racist European genocidal colonialism in which European invaders destroy or expel a native population in order to create space to move in white racist Europeans and possibly a favored non-European population to play a servile role.

      German Nationalsocialism was evil for applying exactly the same settler colonialism in the conquered lands of E. Europe and the USSR.

      Obviously the native Palestinians, the native ethnic Poles, the native Slavo-Turks (Polish Jews), and the native Algerians have experienced the exact same form of evil in historic Palestine, in historic Poland, and in Algeria.

      There is something wrong that German Nationalsocialism is considered so much more evil than French colonialism in Algeria and than Zionism in Palestine. I only seen one major difference: the victims of German Nazism were white Europeans while the victims of French colonialism and of Zionism are darker non-Europeans.

      There is no place on the planet for such ideologies any more than there is a place for 19th century-style white racist enslavement of people that descend from sub-Saharan African populations.

    • As an historian of modern Jews, I can discern no significant difference between the pieds-noirs and Zio invaders like my family in anywhere in Palestine whether in pre-1967 State of Israel or in the Occupied Territories.

      It is worth mentioning that unlike Algerian Muslims Algerian Jews received French citizenship under the Crémieux Decree. Like Polish Jews under the Habsburgs and under the Hohenzollerns, Algerian Jews were specially privileged and served as native collaborators.

      Such facts belie the moronically stupid claim that somehow Jewish immigrants to the USA were not "white".

      Sometimes people should pay attention to the facts as an historian presents them.

  • After article was rejected and publishers yawned, Walt and Mearsheimer dropped 'The Israel Lobby' in 2005
    • Because I am an academic, I am most interested in cases of apparent attempts to stifle free speech in the university marketplace of ideas.

      I put the following comment up on Richard Silverstein's blog.

      I don’t see where Melissa Landa has an actionable complaint. She does not seem to have been tenured, and the university had no obligation to renew her contract.

      I am very careful to keep my web posting or tweeting separate from my academic work because I have no desire to become a target of Zio censors as Finkelstein, Salaita, Kovel, Abu el-Haj, and Massad were. (For posting I have reverted to my family’s name in the Ukraine and don’t use my legal fake Hebrew name that my grandfather adopted after emigration to Palestine.)

      The Kovel case seems very similar, and Joel Kovel took no action against Bard beyond writing a letter to Bard President Botstein. I suspect there were [no] deep-pocket funders for a pointless lawsuit. The situation is quite different when a Zio wishes to bring a pointless complaint.

  • Ten days of awe: standing with whom?
    • Only a moron, an ignoramus, or a liar claims that Jews are indigenous to Palestine or the Land of Israel.

      The term Jew, Juif, Judío, Giudio, Jude, or Slavic variants of Żyd only apply after 10th century when Rabbinic and Karaite Judaism reach orthodox and orthopraxic forms.

      In the Greco-Roman period we should refer to Judean and Judaic populations. The Judaic population, which includes the Judean population, vastly outnumbered the Judean population. In order words the Judaic population of antiquity consisted primarily (and almost entirely) of non-Judean converts to a Judaic (or Hebraic -- to cover Samarian variants) religion.

      Greco-Roman Judeans eventually converted to Christianity and Islam. They are ancestors of native Palestinians and not of modern fake "Jews".

      Boris, who has a Russian name, probably descends from Russianized Polish Jews, who descended entirely from converts -- mostly Slavic or Turkic.

      BTW, I have the same background except that the Jews in Lviv were more Austrianized than Russianized. I don't waste my time with silly belief in Judean ancestry although I have studied how this stupid idea developed such power among Russianized "Jews".

      When I read or hear a racist fake "Jew" babble that Jews are indigenous to the Land of Israel in a sick attempt to justify theft of Palestine and genocide of the native population, I immediately think that the Streicher precedent applies.

  • Israeli rightist Smotrich lays out the vision for apartheid
    • Nathan needs to be more explicit than "Israelis". He means racist genocidal fake "Jewish" colonial settler invaders like my family, who certainly don't belong anywhere in the ME. No one should be sympathetic to such bigoted murderers, interlopers, and thieves. No one should think twice about removing of such fake "Jews" and the eventual disappearance of the fake "Israeli" identity. Who even thinks about Algerian pieds noirs except historians like me?

    • Technically the vast majority of Zio infiltrators (מסתננים) during the Ottoman period were not immigrants but had a status more like legal or illegal resident aliens.

      Mandel discusses the issue in more detail.

      http://ismi.emory.edu/home/documents/Readings/Mandel,%20Neville%20J.%20Ottoman%20Policy.pdf

      If the Central European powers had won WWI (the best possible outcome -- Wilson was stupidly Anglophilic), the Zio infiltrators would almost certainly have been deported by the Ottoman Empire.

  • Critics slam ADL for training U.S. police in Israel-- and when Reddit AMA goes off script
    • I do know that when I have written about history outside my expertise, the comments always pass moderation, but only about 1 comment in 10 passes of those comments in my field, which is the history of modern Jews. Until recently every comment that mentions shtadlanut has been rejected. And the comment is rejected any time I mention that when there was a vote France on emancipation of Jews, non-Jews in non-Ashkenazi areas had no problem with emancipation, but non-Jews in Ashkenazi areas had serious qualms. Lindemann writes on this subject in Esau's Tears. The history in many ways belies the whole concept of antisemitism as articulated among Ashkenazi "Jews".

    • An important novelist of Southern Redemption was Thomas Dixon, who wrote The Leopard's Spots and The Klansman, which together provided the basis of the 1915 epic film The Birth of a Nation.

      Dixon saw himself as the prophet of white or Aryan nationalism. He used both terms in his writing. He explicitly considered European Jews to be members of the Aryan nation and cordially exchanged letters with the Zionist leader Max Nordau.

    • Educating Americans must begin with effort to correct major American misunderstanding of European Jewish history.

      It is particularly unfortunate that Mondoweiss moderators invariably allow Zios and racist Jews to spew all sorts of historical nonsense but filter out comments that try to teach the facts the facts of European Jewish history.

      Unfortunately Americans often don't know much about their own history.

      Modern American policing starts with the effort to control Southern blacks after emancipation (Southern redemption expressed in the KKK, lynching, and Jim Crow).

      Blackmon wrote a very readable book on the subject entitled Slavery by Another Name.

      The ADL and JINSA are just updates to traditional shtadlanut.

      No one should take seriously either organization or any of the ridiculous stink tanks that hyperwealthy racist "Jewish" Zios fund.

      The Hohenzollern and Romanov governments tended to be relatively immune to the efforts of shtadlonim, but shtadlonim tended to be rather effective in Hapsburg ruled areas. Straight through the 19th century we find completely legitimate criticism that organized Jewish groups undermined the rule of law throughout Hapsburg domains.

      During the consolidation of the USSR, Jewish Soviets gravitated to secret police work in the USSR as UCB Professor Slezkine, late Yale Professor Benjamin Harshav, and many other legitimate historians of the Soviet period have pointed out.

      Just as Southern Redemption meant romanticizing slavery and oppressing black Americans, Jewish Redemption today means stealing Palestine and driving out or murdering Palestinians.

      It is not surprising that these two currents of bigotry have merged in the ADL training of US police in Israel.

      Eva Illouz inspired me to learn more about US Southern slavery, the US ideology of slavery, the US Civil War, Reconstruction, Southern Redemption, the effective re-enslavement of black Americans, and Black Lives Matter.

      I consider her to be wrong. Zionism treats Palestinians worse than slavery treated black Americans.

      Black Americans were valuable property under slavery while we Israelis treat Palestinians like vermin.

      For this reason, I am adamant that Israel must be dismantled, Zio invaders must be removed, the Zionist leadership must be tried in Nuremberg-like international tribunals, and the Zionist leadership must receive Nuremberg-like punishments (for the most part seizure of assets, long prison sentences, or execution via hanging).

      Overall I find Jewish historiography of the history of European Jews almost exactly comparable the Dunning School of Reconstruction and Redemption history, which was effectively part of a program to romanticize slavery and to deny black Americans civil rights.

      When we review more contemporary racist Jewish/Zionist attempts to control discourse on campus, we find fairly poor success from the David Project and the Israel on Campus Coalition a few years ago. The failures were followed by more recent wins for the bigots and Zios.

      Joseph Massad and Nadia Abu el-Haj were targeted without success, but Jewish bigots/Zios have had more success in targeting Normal Finkelstein and Steven Salaita.

      Jewish bigots/Zios learn from their failures and then retune their tools of controlling discourse -- why I take part in this forum under an assumed name. At this point the Jewish bigots/Zios seem to have found the right buttons to push at a leading American-Arab university.

  • Charlottesville is moment of truth for empowered U.S. Zionists (who name their children after Israeli generals)
  • Trump support for racists forces Israeli leaders to take sides, but which side will they choose?
    • It is a symptom of mental colonization by racist EEuro fake "Jews"/Zionists to use the term Jew and paronyms with respect to any of the inhabitants of Greco-Roman Palestine. Said inhabitants when practicing a form of Judaism can be called Judaic. When living in the Judean region of Palestine, they may be called Judean. Jew and paronyms should only be used in the 10th century or thereafter.

  • The Israeli right can't condemn Charlottesville because its whispered policy is, Nakba
    • I consider the Khazar hypothesis too focused on the most well-known pre-modern conversion when there should be more focus on significant but less well-known pre-modern conversions.

      Linguistic, textual and other data suggests that EEuro and German Jews especially outside of the region of Southern Ukraine are much more likely to be descended from Slavic, Germanic, Byzantine, or Gallo-Roman converts than from Turkic converts.

      The important point is the following.

      Judaism has been a major proselytizing religion since the Persian imperial period, something to which the Book of Esther alludes.

      Zios that try to claim that Jews are an ethnicity or Volk in the German ethnoracial sense are simply liars and must be discounted.

      Slavo-Turks, whose ancestors converted to Judaism and who until recently spoke Yiddish, were an ethnicity or Volk of Eastern Europe and were autochthonous or indigenous to E. Europe. They have no legitimate claim to Palestine, the UN made an error in accepting the State of Israel into the UN, the white racist genocidal settler-colonist invader population must be removed, and the Zionist leadership both in the Levant and throughout the world must be tried for genocide -- preferably in a venue that still executes by hanging.

      The Rome Statute explicitly states that there is no statute of limitations for genocide. Either the State of Israel exists and the white racist genocidal invaders remain in the country they stole or there is an international antigenocide legal regime.

      BTW, I don't make fun of people's names. Why are Zio commentators allowed to do so?

  • Racial supremacy and the Zionist exception
  • Chomsky still believes in the old Israel. I did too, once upon a time
    • Ben-Gurion's 1937 letter to his son is not obviously related to whether Ben-Gurion ordered expulsions in 47-48.

      Here is the letter.

      http://www.camera.org/images_user/scribbled%20ben-gurion%20letter.pdf

      The first line that is not crossed out states the following in Hebrew.

      אנו צריכים לגרש ערבים ולקחם מקומם

      "We must expel Arabs and take their place."

      This wiki page discusses the debate over the letter.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1937_Ben-Gurion_letter

      It is not surprising that Morris supports my translation above. Morris considers genocide to be something good.

      Overall the letter with even slightly reasonable analysis supports both Morris and Pappé. I consider Ephraim Karsh to be a liar and propagandist. Karsh is not a genuine historian by any stretch of the imagine.

      I repeat.

      How does one know a Zionist is lying? Check for breathing.

    • $3.8 billion is only official foreign military aid. There are many other forms of cash transfers at federal, state, and municipal levels. In addition, Israel receives many US subsidies, and the US suffers many costs to facilitate Israeli trade, and these costs should also count as subsidies. Germany also occurs similar costs, and provides similar but lesser subsidies and aid. The UK and France are in similar situations but provide less money.

      The head of my research team believes (1) that at least half of Israel's yearly GDP comes from various foreign transfers and subsidies (including cancellation of US loans as well as payment of loan guarantees, which make it possible for Israel to borrow money at rates that should not be available to Israel) and (2) that Israel is basically insolvent without this infusion of money from external sources.

      Israel is also in the forefront of stealing US IP, which is then used as the basis of Israeli startups, which are used in pump-and-dump schemes to bring in more money. Many "US" companies that are qualified to accept US military vouchers are actually Israeli owned or controlled so that US workers that are supposed to receive some benefit from aid to Israel never see any benefit.

      In many regards, I consider the situation quite medieval, and I hope that over the next few years we will be able to bring some elucidation to Israeli finances and who actually pays for Israeli atrocities against the peoples of the Levant.

    • Israel shut down Karni/al-Mantar Crossing at least one week and probably two before the January elections. Such harassment and abuse of Palestinians were probably contributory factors in the later election of Hamas to run the PNA.

      I have to add. How does one know a Zio is lying? Check for breathing.

  • Senate is selling out our free speech right to the highest bidder, say American Muslims for Palestine
    • I would make the point more strongly. Zionists have long tried to control and to censor discourse over Zionism, and bigoted Jews did same with respect to Judaism long before Zionism.

      Consider the Eisenmenger case (1704!!!).

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Andreas_Eisenmenger#His_Entdecktes_Judenthum

      I don't understand why anyone tolerates such crap, which has over 300 years of history.

      Of course, one thing I've learned since coming to the USA.

      Americans don't know history and really don't care about it.

  • Wyden turns himself into a pretzel on free speech and Israel Anti-Boycott bill!
    • "US person", "from supporting", "request by a foreign country", "fostered or imposed by any international governmental organization", and "request by any international governmental organization" constitute a giant bull's eye for Zios to attack boycott supporters legally.

      Either Boris is clueless wrt to reading US law, or he is just another Zio that attempts to obscure the facts.

  • Lessons from Finkelstein: International Law and equal rights should be the focus for Palestine solidarity
    • There is another issue that undermines Yonah Fredman's claims of a need to self-protect.

      These claims are completely false. Hostility toward Jews was in decline as I have pointed out several times already.

      The collapse of Commonwealth Poland harmed Jewish incomes from about 1780-1830, but thereafter Jewish income in E. Europe steadily rises until by 1880 EEuro Jews overtake the Polish Szlachta (nobility) in income.

      Jews were rising to high position in government and in the economy from England to the Czarist Empire.

      Jews were also pervasive in the arts, politics, and intellectual life. As Slezkine, Reinharz, and Shavit point out, intellectuals of the time period sometimes refer to the 19th century as the Judenjahrhundert (Jewish Century). I would simply say that because of greater literacy and numeracy Jews were able to take better advantage of modernization than other groups.

      The Czarist Empire built the first university that was meant for Jews and at which instruction (at least in the main) would be in a language (Yiddish) primarily used by Jews.

      One can look at all the serious historians: Baron, Slezkine, Sombart, Nathans, Stanislawski, Lindemann, Cesari, Yerushalmi, et al. They all agree with this assessment.

      I have to remark about pogroms. The Czarist Empire was undergoverned. Pogroms could not break out in the Hapsburg or the Hohenzollern Empires because the governments would execute pogromists very quickly.

      Pogroms in the Czarist Empire include gentile on gentile pogroms, gentile on Jew pogroms, Jew on Jew pogroms, and Jew on gentile pogroms. We read about gentile on Jew pogroms because Jews were more literate and because anti-Czarist propagandizing was a Jewish cottage industry, but the pogroms were relatively minor (obviously not if one suffered them), and when the Czarist government got its act together, it punished pogromists severely.

      Previously Mondoweiss articles have addressed false Jewish beliefs about the Czarist Empire.

      As I have said, "I am puzzled why Mondoweiss allows writers to post errant historical nonsense according to the Jewish studies faculty here at Columbia but invariably moderates out any attempt to address the error even if the error has previously been addressed on Mondoweiss."

      I also must comment on the Dreyfus and Beilis cases. Lindemann has analyzed them extensively. Both defendants tended to harm their own defense. Both were exonerated (Dreyfus' exoneration took much too long but that delay seems unrelated to hostility toward Jews.) Beilis was found not guilty by a jury consisting mostly of Ukrainian peasants, who were not on the whole very educated. Yet racist Jews invariably accuse Ukrainian peasants of flaming and extreme antisemitism. One must also note that the Czarist Empire actually had a problem with human sacrifice. At the time period, the Beilis case was one of several in which defendants were accused of human sacrifice.

      I must also ask the partisans of the Leidensgeschichte why we only hear of the starvation of Ukrainian peasants in the USSR and not about the starvation of Ukrainian Jews during the Holodomor. I know that it's a later period, but Jewish power did not pop out of nowhere. Do the partisans believe that ethnic Ukrainian commissars orchestrated the starvation of ethnic Ukrainians?

  • At town hall, Sen. Warren says Israel Anti-Boycott Act 'violates our basic constitution'
    • It is interesting that the Hebrew name יוֹנָה translates into Yiddish by means of טוֹיבֶּע, which is always a woman's name. I suppose one can use Jonas instead of Jonah/Yonah for the equivalent to avoid confusion.

      Of course, Yoni can cause even worse confusion.

    • I wrote the following.

      The Babylonian Talmud preserves some awareness that Mishnaic, Talmudic, and Rabbinic Judaisms are really Mesopotamian religions that never took deep root in Palestine.

      There are other such passages scattered throughout the Judaic literature of late antiquity, but one must read them in the mindset of Semitic Hellenism to understand. Because it is so hard to understand that mindset today, I argue that Orthodox Jews are for the most part clueless with respect to Judaic scripture.

      BTW, this problem of reading the literature of late antiquity with the mentality of late antiquity is hardly specific to Judaic literature of that time period but also applies to Greek and Latin literature of the same time period. Generally modern Christians (Americans especially) rarely understand the issues that concerned the early Christians. It's one of the reasons I warn people against attempting to learn morality or ethics from those literatures.

    • Worth a side comment. The Babylonian Talmud preserves some awareness that Mishnaic, Talmudic, and Rabbinic Judaisms are really Mesopotamian religions that never took deep root in Palestine.

      I have to ask once more. How do we know that a Zionist is lying? Check for breathing.

      BTW, Pumbeditha is Fallujah, which was destroyed at behest of fake "Jewish" Neocons.

    • Shenhav's work is top notch. I will have to look up relevant articles of his. In the link he seems to miss the importance of Cousinhood of the wealthiest British Jews and the Cousinhood's connection to some very wealthy Iraqi Jews, whose business interests extended from Iraq to China and who were very close to high officials within the British colonial bureaucracy.

      In pre-Independence days, the Zionists among the Cousinhood played in the UK more or less the same role that the Israel Lobby does in the USA today although the Cousinhood Zionists were a good deal lower key and less blatant.

    • Moshe Gat, who is an historian at Bar-Ilan University and who in my opinion writes Zionist history or history that tries hard to avoid threatening Zionist dogma, has argued that Nuri al-Said initially opposed Jewish emigration from Iraq because he considered it detrimental to the Iraqi economy.

      Gat tells us that later American and British Zionists bribed Nuri al-Said to create an Iraqi Jewish exodus, and they included a performance component to the bribe by tying it to the number of Iraqi Jews that arrived in Israel.

      Gat suggests that elements of the British government hostile to Iraq aided the Zionist orchestrated exodus. From my study of early Zionist government policy its not clear to me whether the British and American Zionists acted at the behest of Ben Gurion and other senior Israeli government officials.

      The white racist genocidal Euro Zio invaders were clearly of two minds with regard to Jewish Arab immigrants. Euro Zios generally considered Jewish Arabs racially inferior and feared they would do cultural damage to the Jewish settlement and harm it racially. But the Zio leadership was also extremely aware that Israel could not be held by the Euro invaders without an influx of Jews.

      Many Euro Zio leaders believed that the harm that Jewish Arabs would do to the Jewish state could be mitigated by putting Jewish Arab immigrants on front lines, where there would be high mortality. Children who did not appear too Arab could be taken from their parents and raised by racially superior Euro parents. This idea seems to have taken root before the arrival of many Jewish Arabs because Zionists had strong belief in using eugenics to improve European Jews racially.

    • “There are not words for me to describe how much I hate Rabbinic Judaism as a religion even if I find it interesting as an historical phenomenon.”

      Most of the Zio immigrants of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd aliyot were secular and at the very least uninterested in Judaism. Scorn for Rabbinic Judaism may be the only area about which I agree with my paternal grandfather, who came in the third aliyah. My other grandparents and my parents have been at best indifferent to Judaism. Jewish Sovs and secular Yiddishists, who often scheduled Yom Kippur dances and parties, were at least as scornful of Rabbinic Judaism as I am.

      As I have written before, how does one know a Zio is lying? Check for breathing.

    • I invite readers to execute http://mondoweiss.net/profile/yonifalic/?keyword=hate to judge for themselves whether Jon S is libeling me. If Mondoweiss were my website, I would ban commenters that engage in libel and thus expose the owners legally.

    • One should keep in mind that Noah Chomsky comes from strong Zionist background -- in some sense rather similar to my background although my grandfather emigrated to Palestine and Chomsky's father emigrated to the USA.

      Chomsky never made the cataclysmic break with Zionism and Israel that I did.

    • The "English" Jews were Spaniards granted temporary residence as a privilege that could be suspended at any time if they disobeyed the English law and violated the restrictions under which they were granted temporary residence in order to fill certain financial and commercial needs of the English state.

      If they had a right of return, it was to Spain.

      At other times Tuscans, Lombards, Greeks, & Armenians filled the same financial/commercial contracting role under exactly the same rules.

    • The Protectorate did not overturn the Edict of Expulsion. The Protectorate determined that the Edict was dead letter because it applied only and specifically to the Jews present in England in 1290.

      I have tried to explain before that Jewish communities served as a contractual commercial & financial class. When they violated the terms (in this case wrt usury and slaving) under which they were invited in, they were invited out.

      There was no return in 1657, but Jews began to immigrate into England.

  • Zionism is apartheid, and worse
    • I'm not sure what @DaBakr means by "challenged". There is no international supreme court in which international law can be challenged.

      International law is a combinations of international treaties and conventions, customary law, and decisions of various international tribunals. (In some cases, international law is based on the practices of various states. The treatment of Confederate soldiers and citizens by the USA has been a major input into the Hague and Geneva Conventions.)

      Here is the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid.

      https://treaties.un.org/doc/publication/unts/volume%201015/volume-1015-i-14861-english.pdf

      From wikipedia.

      The crime of Apartheid is defined by the 2002 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court as inhumane acts of a character similar to other crimes against humanity "committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime."

      The Rome Statute [created the ICC and] established four core international crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression. Those crimes "shall not be subject to any statute of limitations".

      While international law functions well in certain areas which like international telecommunications are relatively apolitical, international law has been far more problematic in application to the four core international crimes.

      Obviously as long as the State of Israel exists and Zios wander freely throughout the globe and do damage to the political systems of many states, no one can take seriously the international law of genocide.

      For this reason we must start to discuss the crimes of Israel not only in terms of apartheid but also in terms of genocide. We should not be daunted that the ICC uses 2002 as terminus a quo. Israel and Zios are culpable under international anti-genocide law for numerous crimes post 2002 (including Cast Lead).

      Venues that claim universal jurisdiction can prosecute and punish Israeli and Zio leaders to the fullest extent of customary international anti-genocide law on the precedents of the Nuremberg IMT, which is terminus a quo for customary international anti-genocide law.

    • Jack Green writes the following.

      YoniFalic

      You talked about Zionists being racist,
      but I was wondering about the claim that the Zionism of 1897 was racist.

      Jack Green has provided a typical example of completely obnoxious Zio hairsplitting/pilpul/quodlibet.

      Okay. I will provide the obvious rewrite.

      On the basis of Zionist writings from before 1897, there can be no doubt that Zionism presumes that the (false) historical and (mythical) national rights of E. European (fake) “Jews” (really Slavo-Turks) are superior to the human, democratic, and property rights of the native population.

      It’s a strong, clear, and convincing prima facie case of the inherent racism of Zionism, which is a genocidal ideology espoused by extremely chauvinist white Europeans.

      Jack Green either refutes the prima facie case or stops spewing his ridiculous white racist genocidal Euro nonsense.
