Is Anti-Zionism Anti-Judaism?

December 13, 2019

Judaism is a national origin, originally. A nation was located somewhere for a millenium, then expelled from that place. But the descendants didn’t forget.

French and US leadership have apparently rediscovered this indisputable fact recently: Judaism is not just a religion, or not just only a religion (just as Zionists said, forever). Let me help them, in their ponderous reflection, with a big picture of history, as usual chasing truth, and the truth about those who don’t want to chase the truth, because they claim they already have it, while accusing other of biases because biases are all they know…

The first record of the name Israel (as ysrỉꜣr) occurs in the Merneptah stele, erected for Egyptian Pharaoh Merneptah (son of Ramses II) circa 1209 BCE, in a typically robust fashion: “Israel is laid waste and his seed is not.” Ironically enough, the closest civilization to Pharaonic Egypt is, arguably, Israel. The Pharaohs are gone, Israel is not.

The subject of Israel is fraught with many idiotic conditioned reflexes on all sides, in all ways. A first problem is equating “Semite” and “Jew” (the most prominent “Semitic” religion is violently, even lethally, anti-Jewish… See below!)

To understand the “Jewish Problem” (or “Jewish Question“), one has to go back to what happened in the First and Second Century. By then, Israel had existed as a regional superpower for more than a millennium. However its Northern Part, named israel, was conquered by the Assyrian superpower in 722 BCE. Its Southern Part, Judah, was conquered by Babylon (part of a coalition of empires which had killed Assyria) in 586 BCE (although some cooperative Jews were left behind, many were sent in captivity, during which time they wrote the Bible, before being sent back to exchange hostilities with the collaborators).

Israel towards maximal extension, 3,000 years ago. This is not a Zionist to show such a map, it’s being an historian. King Solomon reigned a very long time, he was the son of David, famously opposed to the jealous and somewhat demented god of the Bible, who tortured one of David’s sons, to death, just because his father had not committed genocide against two nations… as “god” had ordered him to. The Bible: a book very handy to justify genocide in all sorts of ways…

Before the end of the Republic, the Romans came to sniff around, first presenting themselves, for many decades, as guarantors of the security of Israel, before establishing a collaborating monarchy, and then a mild occupation. However fanatics didn’t like legionnaires ot be garrisoned in Jerusalem, and 600 of them were treacherously killed. A rescuing legion was then annihilated in an ambush…

Then the Jews, many of them religiously fanatical, fought the fascist Romans in messy wars rich in unlikely events (even in the first Judean war, Jewish factions fought each other). Ultimately the Romans reacted in unjust ways, according to their own definition.

So emperor Julian determined by 360 CE, and he ordered the reconstruction of the Jewish Temple and allowing Jews to come back to Israel. However, Julian was killed (probably by a Catholic), and Christianism cracked down ferociously on science, books, intellectuals, unbelievers, and Jews. Saint Augustine the Creep delighted in having the Jews exiled form Israel, and is a revered authority figure to this day (that’s in part why I call him a creep, to compensate, notwithstanding the fact that, he was, indeed a criminal against humanity… And Jews in particular…)

Jews had been promised a land, according to the Bible, and they occupied it for at least 13 centuries, before the Romans threw them out, deciding to name it “Syria Palaestina” instead of Israel. 13 centuries is how long Islam has existed. So Jews were in Israel as long as Islam has existed, before being thrown out by the Romans.

Christians, marking territory, as the big dogs they were, then built churches on top of the destroyed Jewish temple. After 650 CE, the Muslims, anxious to show they were even bigger dogs, built mosques on top of the Jewish temple, while deciding that Jerusalem, the historical capital of the Jews, was Islam’s third most sacred place.

The case of Israel is unique: it is a nation exiled from its land whose descendants of the exiles kept on remembering while being mistreated to the point of near-extinction by their best frenemies, the Christians (who revered Jews as Jesus was a Jewish rabbi, and hated them for having killed him, a bit as if one revered the French for Marie Antoinette and hated them for her demise). Identifying anti-Zionism with anti-Judaism is justified from this historical context.

And the Palestinians, in all this? Well they should start by not joining the choir of would-be Israel exterminators. Instead, they should try to welcome their long lost brethren with open arms. Not that they have a choice: what overwhelming military force taketh, overwhelming military force gaveth too. The Occident took a long time to understand what a calamity Christianism had been: little more than a plundering cover-up of a decaying, murderous plutocracy… And it goes on to this day [1]. Restoring the Jews is part of the the reparation program [2].

P/S Context, December 12, 2019:

Assailants in a deadly mass shooting/crime against humanity on Tuesday at a Jersey City, N.J., kosher supermarket were found to have published anti-Jewish posts online. Notoriously, worldwide, university pseudo-leftist have identified Israel to plutocracy and racism… as the Nazis did, quite explicitly, in a twist of traditional lethal Christian anti-Jewish sentiment… and a cover-up of the fact they were themselves financed by plutocrats (some of them even somewhat Jewish: see the Warburgs…)

Historically Saint Louis of France and Luther said worse things about the Jews in public than even the Nazis did. Saint Louis, another of these famous Christian creeps, whose greatest pleasure in life, he said would have been to plant a knife in an atheist belly and then rotating it (that’s exactly what he wrote), expelled the Jews from France. At least he decreed it (apparently, didn’t work, though…)

This is our message to universities: if you want to accept the tremendous amount of federal dollars that you get every year, you must reject anti-Semitism, it’s very simple,” Trump just said, expanding the definition of anti-Semitism to include some anti-Israel sentiments.

Kenneth L. Marcus, the head of the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights was already deeming Judaism a “national origin,” like Italian or Polish, to strengthen a campaign against what he sees as rampant anti-Judaism in higher education. That campaign is in part motivated by Islamophilia.

See the relevant Hadith calling for the death of all Jews before the Final Judgment. Hamas (ironically partly an Israeli secret service creation) wants all Jews killed… At least, at the level of its wishlist constitution. Hamas rules Gaza. I have quoted this saying of Prophet Muhammad in Hadith (41; 6985)  many times.

[1] Every year, Catholics around the world donate tens of millions of dollars to his excellency the pope. Bishops exhort the faithful to support the weak and suffering through the pope’s main charitable appeal, called Peter’s Pence.

What the church doesn’t advertise is that most of that collection, worth more than €50 million ($55 million) annually, goes toward plugging the hole in the Vatican’s own administrative budget, while as little as 10% is spent on charitable works, according to people familiar with the funds. In other words, the Vatican lies, as it has been doing for 17 centuries…

***

[2] The case of destroyed nations, all around the world, is different, because precisely, they were destroyed. The Jews contributed too much to Occident, they were part of it well before Christianism was invented… And, because of this, precisely, they were not destroyed…

“Repairing” African-Americans is no option either, because they have no land they want to return to, let alone can return to: that was tried before and didn’t work very well… most of them are part European, anyway.

 

Judaism’s Promised land

January 27, 2015

 

Auschwitz, the Jewish Problem, and a Better Final Solution:

I want to make sure I am not Politically Correct, every day, so I chose my words carefully… Political Correctness has established its empire on the ruins of Philosophical Correctness. But politics ought just to be practical philosophy, it cannot afford to contradict it.

I turned Deutsche Welle (German TV) on, and fell on a Jew talking at Auschwitz, inside what had to be the world’s most gigantic tent, draped with sumptuous blue lights. Zehr gut. Germans’ fate is now forever tied to Auschwitz, as the German president said. Studying Auschwitz ought to bring the final solution to much German ideology, including Kant, Herder, etc.

I switched to the French TV, and the same elder gentleman was here again, making the same discourse, and it was the same camera. I love it when Germans and French agree, about what is important, and it’s rarely not the case these days.

The speaker, an Auschwitz survivor, said words were important. To qualify those assassinated by the Nazis, one should speak of assassination, not “loss”. It’s not that we forgot about them, and we don’t know where they are. They were assassinated. I could not agree more. I have made that point in writing for years.

The French, German and Ukrainian president were in the audience. The day prior, a rocket attack on the large city of Mariopol had killed tens of civilians. The Organization of Stability and Security in Europe, and others, determined that the rockets came from the terrorist-Russian side. Asked about it the half demented Russian dictator, declared that a NATO “Foreign Legion” was causing mayhem in Ukraine. NATO replied that the only foreign legion in Ukraine was Russian. Putin confirmed that “patriotic volunteers” had crossed into Ukraine. He condemned “Russophobia”.

Putin did not go to the Auschwitz commemoration, pretexting he was not invited (nobody was; the event had been organized 9 years ago by the UN…)

Putin’s slow motion terror is a sight to behold. As I have explained, it was enabled by the last moment failure of a surgical strike against Bashar El Assad, personally and directly. Saudi (!) and French aircraft were on the runways, ready to take-off, but, at the last moment Obama lost his balls, and assassinated respect for the West’s military… With the failure to execute mass criminal Assad.

Assassination science is a complicated subject. Failure to assassinate here, will lead to assassination there.

The top German generals had decided to assassinate Hitler… They just needed British and American verbal support. Would the UK and the USA announce that they will stand publicly with France against Hitler? … Instead of siding with Hitler, as they had done so far? Then the generals, headed by chief of staff Beck, could make a coup, kill the top Nazis and argue to the Volk that it was a question of saving Germany from criminal madness.

Instead, the UK and USA governments betrayed humanity. They told Hitler that his generals, all his top generals, were plotting against him. That was in 1938. Beck was forced to resign, and to commit suicide in 1944 (after Beck headed the “Von Stauffenberg” coup).

The head of the World Jewish Congress talked. He accused “anti-Semitism”.

Word precision, please. Concept precision, please. Arabs are Semites. Many Arabs, if not most, detest Jews. So are Arabs detesting themselves? Of course not. So asking Arabs to fight “anti-Semitism” is like asking Americans to fight “anti-Americanism”. Silly, thus, ineffectual.

On January 21, 2015, French philosopher and plutocrat Bernard-Henri Levy told the 193-nation assembly that the world must confront “the renewed advance of this radical inhumanity, this total baseness that is anti-Semitism.”

This is complete madness, on the face of it. BHL wants us to become mad. Hamas has in its charter, Hadith 41;6985, which orders to kill all the Jews. Hamas rules Gaza, a city more than 2,000 years old… And Gaza is full of Semites. Bombed by would-be Semites, the Jews of Israel. When BH Levy tells the inhabitants of Gaza to renounce “anti-Semitism”, they can only feel that he is mad. Or that he views them as subhumans (as BHL recognizes only Jews as Semites, thus Gaza denizens as non-Semites, thus as having no identity, since BHL amputates them from their very existence!)

I said “would-be Semites” because, ironically, as Christians could convert to Judaism for centuries under the very long lived Franco-Roman empire, many European Jews were actually, first, of European descent. (Several top Nazis were themselves more or less of European Jewish descent; Hitler himself was a dubious case; he made thousands of German Jews, “honorary Aryans”.)

The World Jewish Congress head accused “most nations of Europe” to be culprit of Auschwitz. Not one word about the USA. Yet, the USA was more culprit of the massacre of the Jews than any other nation, barred Germany itself. We are in 2015. How much longer do we have to wait for this basic truth? The fact is both instructive, and a warning.

Not only did the USA refuse to accept Jewish refugees (so millions, blocked from immigration, were killed in Europe; France, by contrast, had open borders). But American managers, such as Prescott Bush, managed the slave labor from the Auschwitz archipelago. That was obliterated by the official version of history, as was the employ, at the highest levels (the Dulles heads of CIA, State), of many Nazis and Nazi collaborators, all powerful in the USA, not just in the 1930s, but also in the 1950s…

By not mentioning any of this, the head of the World Jewish Congress makes himself an accomplice of the most important enabling factor of the Shoah.

Who learned nothing?

The Arabs, accused to be “anti-Semites”? Or those who play dumb, 80 years later? And still can’t make the connection between the fact Obama was in Saudi Arabia, making oil plots, and not joining with 30 heads of states in Auschwitz (not anymore than he was in France two weeks earlier to demonstrate for Freedom of Expression).

The head of the World Jewish Congress should call a cat a cat, instead of calling cats “anti-cats”. What he should have bemoaned is “anti-JUDAISM”.

He then bemoaned Jews could go around Paris with a Kippah. Sure. Let’s have everybody walk around in big religious garb, hoping for the best. Time for a bit of sensitivity, perhaps? The latest activities by Israel in Gaza killed around 2,300 people (most of them civilians… even according to Israel!)… And wounded more than 10,000. That’s a lot of dead and wounded for a population of 1.8 million (more or less caged, thanks to Egypt and Israel).

Scaled up to the USA, that would be more than 400,000 dead… An astounding number.

More generally, Judaism gave us Christiano-Islamism. It’s supposed to be a great gift. However, Christianism took over the Roman empire by 400 CE (that’s when Roman emperor Theodosius had to be beg forgiveness on his knees to the archbishop of Milan, one of the so-called Church’s Founding Fathers).

The government by bishops, for bishops, did not just collapse the empire, it collapsed civilization, and even demography. The Franks took over a devastated Europe, created their own bishops, and their own saints, and their own interpretation of Christianism. Then they domesticated the Popes.

Something similar happened with Islam. After the Islamists took military control, they proved incapable to come to terms with secularism, which is the condition sine qua non for civilization.

Thus, centuries later, after most of the population converted and was submitted to Sharia instead of secular law, civilization became moribund, and has been thus ever since.

Not to be left behind, Christian madness made a comeback after the First Crusade (1099 CE), and brought crusades, pogroms, Inquisition, ethnic cleansing, Jewish and Muslim eradication, for centuries to come. This was no small stuff: the crusade against the Cathars killed millions (scaled to the populations, it’s worse than what the Nazis did; indeed the Cathars were killed to the last, and all their works, but one, or so)

Hence Judeo-Christo-Islamism stinks to high heavens most of the time. It keeps on being re-captured (surprise, surprise), by Elected People theoreticians… Come to think of it, that, and the respect for a crazed, bloodthirsty god, is the very basis of the doctrine…

Maybe Jews would be well advised to understand that their problems, just as those of Islam, originate greatly from their religion. It’s OK, to change religion: Gallia changed religion, getting ever more secular, no less than four times in 2,000 years (from the Celtic human sacrifice cult, to Roman cult, to Christianism, to now Secularism).

The Promised Land ideology allowed to give the inspiration and religious backing for the North American Euro colonists to eradicate the Natives, following what they read in the Bible. So the Bible is still very popular in the USA: it made Americans not just feeling good about themselves, but awesomely rich: by the Nineteenth Century, an American going west was a multimillionaire, thanks to the Bible propelled government’s generosity.

Apologists will say it’s not so much the Promised-Land greed, but the Ten Commandments which are the core of the Biblical doctrine. That was not very useful when the Germans got angry.

Indeed, as one of the Auschwitz survivors just said: One needs an Eleventh Commandment: Don’t Be Just a Spectator.

Even more important: have your own ideas. Parrots make poor thinkers. Poor thinking makes you dinner.
