Sadly, Mr. Ofir, I believe what you concluded when you read those honestly probing questions (and they really are impressive questions) was that you wouldn’t be able to legitimately defend the group/culture with which you identify. On some level I understand that this can be scary. These questions force you to see the ugliness in the culture around which your entire identity is based. But the upside is, if you’re honest with yourself, if not with Atzmon, you can break up with this culture. You can leave the club. It’s not the MAFIA.
What you don’t get away with is calling Atzmon an antiSemite or any other baseless name because he made you uncomfortable. Really you should thank him. He has never attacked Jews for being Jews. He criticizes the culture and politics of Chosensim. He has a right to. We all do as the problemisn’t contained within boundaries of the Jewish culture but rather infiltrates all of humanity with the most devastating effects on gentiles. Just look at the Middle East. And that’s only the tip of iceberg.
Everything is allowed to be questioned, including what we were told about what happened to, AND BY Jews in WWII. Many people feel the official story of 9/11 is false, they aren’t called 9/11 deniers. They are truth seekers. Only Jews seem to exist in this either/or, “if not this, then that” dynamic. If we don’t see the Jewish state as legitimate, then we are calling for death of Jews. If we question anything about the Jewish narrative on WWII, then we are denying it happened. This is absurd. And patently false.
So, you can point fingers at the bravery and honesty of someone like Atzmon, or you can answer those questions. If not for him, do it for yourself.
