I did not say you had a drinking problem... it was a guess about some BDS activists , in general. In fact, I never even thought of you, personally, about that attitude of some Arab Activists for BDS, when I was thinking, drinking, might be behind some of the defensive language, about me being a Zionist.
In other words, in plain English... I would say I'm a Zionist even if AIPAC, American Jews, and the state of Israel never even came into existence.
And, if the Arabs in the ME, never even heard of Zionism, and if if all the Jews were living in Russia, or the Ukraine...and they also never heard of Zionism.
I explained here over , and over and over again. My Zionism has nothing to do with traditional Zionism. it is self defined, self created in my own life and in my own world . My individualist world as a goy Israeli.
They are not racist remarks, they are my questions as a pacifist, as a new citizen of Israel about the propaganda nature of the BDS activist tactics.
You never did entertain my questions about Arab wave flagging tactics at demonstrations for BDS, and, anti Zionist countries that are technically at war and/or conflicts with Israel, and their use of those tactics for propaganda... or not for propaganda... in their media networks.
Perhaps, American Jews don't care about the answer or they never would ask the question, because, they are in the bubble of the American Dream, living in the tribe of the American Jewish community... but I have to ask myself those questions. it is question of survival... it has nothing to do with race. It is questions about tactics, wars, peace, propaganda, things like that.
I have been thinking that with the election of Trump about America. I did not vote for him; but I read his books, and some about him from one of his writers; that is Jewish. Trump, I think, ironically, will be a great president, for his voters.
I voted for Clinton. He is a reflection of every American; in many ways. If anything a non-politician in office will be a pleasant diversion from years of infomercials that the public, I'm sure, is bored with. AIPAC's membership will probably triple; Orthodox synagogues will increase membership by probably, double.
As a liberal; I did not see much genuine activism in the 80s too the present... in America. As a new citizen of Israel, when I lived there I did see liberalism, anywhere. I never voted Republican, ever. But, they won... and, I think many more American Jews voted him into office; then what the news is reporting.
But, in the international world; I think it will be bleak. I don't think Trump has the courage to confront Iran with the Nuclear plant, thing.
Iran will probably build the Atom bomb off the books; and that news will make Trump billions, if not more, in the futures market. But, day to day, America will look better for the average American.
I have a theory, it is 100% conjectural though; and a after thought of sorts.
I never met her in person, as well.
Perhaps, it has to do with socialism. Maybe, they have some socialists, or communists belief cultural belief systems, and it is the way they communicate, within their tribe, as a atheistic socialist Jewish world of sorts.
I'm not a socialist or a communist, or a atheistic. My father was a Jewish agnostic or atheistic, who had ancestors from the same area of Russia, as those in the Russian community I was in while in Israel. I. for a time lived in that community while in Israel.
I lived in a Russian Jewish house of a atheistic Russian Jewish, culture, with other Russian Jews... but I don't know if they were atheistic too.
I seen the same arrogance, even among themselves when they would talk to each other. One time, they were drink and directed the arrogance at me, but I think it was not a genuine arrogance just a cultural thing.
It would be interesting to know if any of the writers here have a drinking problem.
They, for example, while in public would speak, Hebrew, but when they returned home.... I was living in their home... they spoke Russian.
So, in many ways I felt like I was living in a Russian world community within Israel. When, they got angry it was the same arrogance as a husband, and wife in a bitter fight, that could be heard for three blocks away. In a way, I would after time find it all to be humorous... the way they would fight day in and day out screaming at each other at the top of their lungs, in Russian, completely oblivious that all their neighbors could hear them.
I think it actually that Trump worships the golden calf as one of his gods, as king of the world, his other god, or idol, he looks at beginning every new day at 5 AM, is the god of me, me, me.
A Roman trait, that went down through the generations, secretly, spoken about during Masonic, Odd fellow rituals; if not by Trump personally certainly by those under him.
For many years of my life I had a similar view in ways. I was a American; I lived in the present, read poetry, and life was heaven on earth.
Why would I even care about in depth ancestry work? Would be a question that would not of ever even entered my mind, until I was physically attacked, because, of being perceived as being Jewish.
My whole life was turned upside down. I had survived yes. But, I was a different person. I could not believe, I would have to from that day on in my life be something I never wanted to be a American Jew.
I never even liked my father; he seemed like a nice guy he was Jewish; but he had divorced my mother, so I just wanted to go on with my life. But, I was forced to be a part of his world.
So to deal with the divisions of being both a goy and a Jew; I did similar research into my ancestry; and things got even worse. I was starting to know; no matter what I may think; that my Jewish nose, my Jewish face was exactly like that of my father's.
And he lived in a exclusive Jewish community all his life as a stereotypical American Jew. And here he is living a secure life in a sort of gated community, and I'm being attacked not just once, but other times for being Jewish, and I was not even a Jew.
But, in facing the things I did not want to it became interesting. My ancestry was in many ways fascinating for me; and it eventually led me to become a Israeli citizen. which for me is one of the best things I ever did in my life.
Because, I seen a whole world I never even knew existed in Israel, and I had roots in it, a home that not only I lived in, but also others like me, all going through similar life stories like that I go through day to day. And, my Israeli citizenship papers says I'm Israeli which for me is perfect for me... because I never wanted to be a American Jew.
