In Re: [Stephen Walt] Huckabee in the Holy Land

August 28, 2009

I added the following comments to Huckabee in the Holy Land:

Not Concerned about Palestinians

I am chiefly concerned with the damage that Zionist subversion does to the American political, economic, and legal system:

  1. Freeman, American Naiveté, Israel Lobby
  2. Jewish Financial Aggression, Worldwide Economic Nakba
  3. MSM Monitor: Mun Murder Cover-Up Complete

Obviously, I am not the only person becoming disgusted with Zionist subversion of American society: Shocker: Number of Americans Who Say U.S. should support Israel drops from 71% to 44% in one year.

I point out in Jewish Peril: 1933 Versus 2009:

Zionists have proven to be much smarter Nazis for they have built their thousand year Reich as a virtual state entity and have piggy-backed on US power and influence since 1947 in an effort to conquer not merely territory but to thoroughly colonize the minds of their Western victims, who are being lead like sheep to some sort of apocalyptic slaughter in confrontation with the Islamic world.

In comparison with the Jewish Zionist peril of 2009, the real albeit anti-Semitically tainted Jewish peril of the 20s and 30s, the German Nazi threat during the 30s, and the post-WW2 Communist Menace all fade into insignificance.

A Balanced View and the Facts

I had this discussion with Linda Gradstein a few years ago after a talk in which she claimed to report the news about Israel and Palestine in a balanced fashion, and she just could not understand how I could argue — as a former newspaper reporter — that balanced reporting cannot possibly be objective reporting.

Every poll of the Muslim world shows that something like 70-80% of Muslims are personally offended by the continued existence of the State of Israel, and why shouldn’t they be?

A bunch of racist murderous genocidal — according to their own primary literature, which I have read — Eastern Europeans stole Palestine from the native population and have justified Zionist crimes against humanity in a number of ways including defamation of the whole Islamic world.

I don’t know if the overwhelming majority of the planetary population wants to see the State of Israel abolished, but I would wager that it is a respectable majority.

Why does the US have to be on the wrong side of history?

At the very least it is expensive, and it probably occasions a periodic horrendous terrorist attack.

Herein lies the problem. We are unable to have a rational discussion of the issue because at this point some racist Jewish Zionist invariably interjects with “the balanced view” and accuses those in disagreement of anti-Semitism and paranoia (the tip off that we are dealing with a Jewish hypocrite).

Guess what! Unless we start scrutinizing Jewish history, politics, and religion the way racist Jewish Zionists trash Arab and Muslim history and politics, we don’t have a balanced view.

In fact, I have to ask our racist Jewish “Balanced View” Zionist, whether he has been studying Judaica for the last 40 years?

How much time has he spent in a Yeshiva?

Does he at the very least read Classical Hebrew, Mishnaic Hebrew, Modern Israeli Hebrew, Yiddish, Polish, Russian, and German without which it is not really possible to have a good understanding of modern Jewish political economy?

Because a lot of the issues are related to finance and economics, how much background does he have in mathematical economics and financial modeling?

Does he have a good background in demography and statistics?

Anyone that starts flinging around epithets like anti-Semitism and paranoia is trying to shut down the discussion.

By any reasonable standard hating Zionists and Jews refusing to condemn Zionism is completely justified on the part of Arabs, Muslims, and their sympathizers.

Because Americans are particularly dense on this subject after decades of Zionist brainwashing, I will reiterate.

A bunch or murderous racist genocidal E. Europeans stole Palestine from the native population and justified their crimes with a lot of ridiculous nonsense including

1) slicing and dicing Christian and Jewish scripture,

2) vilifying Arabs, and

3) demonizing Muslims.

It has little connection to realist foreign policy (except possibly issues of soft power), but hating Zionism is not anti-Semitism or paranoia. It is the natural reaction to Zionist villainy and the transparent mendacity of dishonest Jews like “A Balanced View.”


In Re: [Islam In Europe] Rotterdam: City to fire Tariq Ramadan (UPDATE)

August 22, 2009

I commented on Rotterdam: City to fire Tariq Ramadan (UPDATE):

Meaning of Fascism

Actually, fascism was not precisely a right-wing ideology but — as Zev Sternhell — points out was a revision of Marxism. 

The rise of fascism (and Nazism) does not take place in the 30s. At that point these two ideologies have already arrived. 

The Holocaust according to most scholars starts in January 1942, and most immigrants in Central and Western Europe during the 20s and 30s were not Jewish but were fleeing either the Soviet Union or newly created states of E. Europe. I would guess that most refugees were probably Ostdeutsch but there were also a lot of anti-communists fleeing from the Bolsheviks. 

In general Jewish sympathies lay with the Bolsheviks with the exception of the minority religious Jewish group that was subjected to severe persecution by the Yevsektsia and secular Soviet Jews: 

Der Nister witnessed … religious and political persecution during his lifetime, he must have been certain that this sect [Bratislaver Hassidim] would vanish for good, forever to be misunderstood. In the 1920s, the mainstream Jewish community had even turned on its own religious sects in the Soviet states, echoing the government’s pogroms, and Der Nister’s novel reflects that internal feud. As Book Two ends, the town seeks to drive out the sect, suspecting that somehow the group’s strange habits have brought the curse of financial ruin upon everyone. [Elizabeth Mitchell in The Lies of Yiddish Studies

A few of my relatives abandoned the New Yishuv in order to return to Russia and take part in the consolidation of the Soviet state — to wit, in order to participate in massive crimes against humanity. 

During the 30s Jews definitely number far more among the victimizers than among the victims when proper consideration is given to Soviet Ashkenazi mass murderers and to the Zionist Ashkenazim, who took part in the targeted assassinations of the Special Night Squads. 

The work fo Koonz and Herf both show that the German Nazis were not really focused on anti-Semitism until at least 1939, for the Nazi leadership was far more concerned externally with the Soviet Union and internally with the Marxist fifth column. 

Spanish, French, and Italian fascist leaders were on the whole far less interested in the Jewish question than the German Nazis, and a good part of the Spanish, French, and Italian fascist leadership explicitly repudiated anti-Semitism during the 30s. 

I have not seen Changing Europe and Islam, but a deemphasis on the discussion of anti-Semitism during the 30s would in general be a good corrective to the historical distortions to which pop culture usually subjects us.

Restricted Discussion of 1930s History

I have spent decades in studying the 30s. 

While I not particularly thrilled with Revisionist historians, I find even more offensive the nonsense that Jews believe about the period. 

I attended the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) exhibition on German Nazi book-burnings. 

I told the USHMM rep that I was offended as anybody about Nazi book-burnings. 

Then I asked whether he thought it might have been relevant to mention that while the German Nazis were burning books, the Soviets were shooting authors, and the killers were usually Jewish. 

He agreed and told me that USHMM spokespeople were not allowed to discuss this particular aspect of 1930s politics. 

I am an expert in the field. I can tell you on what day Eichmann was where, and I do not like to deal with Jewish ranting on the issue. 

Unless Ramadan spends the time to develop expertise at my level — approximately 30 years of work, he should probably avoid the topic. 

A few years ago, I showed off with the Italian consul at a showing of PerlascaSometimes Emailings Makes a Difference.

Hitler and Wilders

I have listened to Hitler’s speeches of the 30s and gone through a large chunk of Nazi and fascist writings. 

Generally, non-Jews throughout Europe were angry at Jewish economic, business, and financial misbehavior, but the main object of hatred and fear was the Soviet Union. 

This hostility redounded upon the Jews because Jews were perceived not completely incorrectly as the force behind the Soviet Union. 

The problem with this thinking was the belief in monolithic Jewish conspiratorial politics. 

I attribute refusal to take Jewish politics seriously — as one might look at Polish politics — to prejudice. 

Likewise the refusal to look at Soviet and fascist politics seriously — they are very different — also looks like prejudice. 

Anyway, I also appear on Iranian PressTV. It does not take the position that the Holocaust did not happen. The issue even came up in an interview I did a few months ago. 

My opinion about the USHMM is hardly unique. Yuri Slezkine has said as much as has the eminent Princeton scholar Arno Mayer. (Winston Churchill had a fairly similar opinion.

European Muslims certainly are not treated like German Jews in the 30s or 40s. (Palestinians are.) 

Yet I have listened to Geert Wilders’ battle-for-civilization sthik. He does do a pretty good Hitler imitation, and I can understand why there is a superficial comparison with the 30s. 

Ramadan simply does not have the skill set to look at the money trails and understand them, but I do. 

Geert Wilders and friends are getting piles of money from the principals of the American Republican Jewish Coalition. 

While the NSDAP did receive money in the 1920s from wealthy Jews like Arthur Trebitsch, we are seeing a completely different sort of Jewish politics in the pumping up of the new radical right. 

You should know. I think I’ve seen your stuff on MEF.

Serious Historians

I don’t take Gilbert seriously as an historian when Jewish subjects are involved. 

Anyway, I verified Churchill’s authorship of the article that I quoted in Jewish Peril: 1933 versus 2009. I recommend reading the whole article (the link is there) in order to get a sense of how poor an historian Gilbert really is. 

There is a fairly open debate here in the USA about the anti-Semitism of the Iranian government. (Take a look at the Roger Cohen link of Roya Hakakian: Shadow of Recollections.) 

The anti-Semitism accusation belongs to Jabotinskian-Neocon-Bomb-Iran politics, to which MEF belongs. 

MEF is one of the organizations that is encouraging the funding of Wilders and friends. I attended fundraisers for him in Boston: Collection: Wilders Visit to Boston

BTW, Pipes also appears on Iranian PressTV although he has yet to appear with me on a program even though the producers have tried to make it happen in the past. 

I have also appeared in the pages of the Volkskrant

Media appearances don’t say anything about a person. 

I write political economics. Conspiracy is part of political economics. I write about transnational political conspiracies among Arabs and Muslims when it is relevant to the discussion at hand. 

Hannah Arendt was accused of anti-Semitism because she wrote historical analysis of Jews instead of panegyrics. Obviously, I am going to catch more flak because I deal directly with the economic and finance issues.

In Re: [Stephen Walt] Safe Haven (2): A response to Peter Bergen

August 21, 2009

I commented on Safe Haven (2): A response to Peter Bergen:

Need to Discuss the Jewish Zionist Aspects of Afghanistan Policy

I have been quiet because I have be plowing through the publicly available information on 9/11 and Arab Jihadism.

It is far from clear that Bin-Ladin and al-Qa`ida have really committed the terrorist acts ascribed to them.

Unlike most of the alleged experts whether a journalist like Lawrence Wright or foreign policy wonk Peter Bergen, I actually read Arabic.

I also have been studying Jewish Zionist transnational politics for twenty years.

In order to marginalize growing Western Muslim populations, the Zionist intelligentsia has desperately been trying to fabricate the bogey man of a centralized Islamic terrorist organization even though the terror attacks like the those on the African embassies, the USS Cole and 9/11 have been relatively low-tech and relatively inexpensive with no real need for an organization like al-Qaeda to plan and to organize them.

I can understand why al-Qaeda might want to take credit for the attacks (it’s good for fundraising).

Yet the Arab Jihadist smoking gun simply isn’t there while the construction of the Zionism-serving official story has involved far too many Jewish Zionist Islamophobes to take seriously without first investigating the pre-conceived notions of government officials or consultants like Steven Emerson, Matthew Levitt, Rachel Ehrenfeld, Daniel Pipes, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, Richard Perle, the AJCommittee, the ADL, and many others.

There is a good possibility that the USA has been conned bigtime by Zionist subversives, among whom Peter Bergen should probably be counted if only because he flings around accusations of anti-Semitism as randomly as any Zionist Neocon.

In the globalized world with globalized cash flows, blowing up a genocide-supporting Zionist anywhere on the planet is no different from blowing up a Nazi anywhere in occupied Europe during the 1940s, and realists must reject the sort terminological promiscuity in which Bergen indulges.

I would really like to see a good cash accounting of money flows and beneficiaries of shoveling 100s of billions of dollars into attacking al-Qaeda in the AfPak region.

I am fairly certain that US subsidies (not foreign aid) to the State of Israel are running at approximately $100 billion/year.

Here is my summary that tries to analyze the political situation from the standpoint of domestic and transnational politicsl considerations: Collision: Jewish-Zionist, Arab-Islamic Transnational Politics.

Looking at Fundamental Premises Not Relevant?

Excuse me, but why isn’t my comment relevant?

Professor Walt wants to do some cost-benefit analysis.

More power to him.

I want to look at the basics with a minor extension to the Mearsheimer & Walt Israel Lobby thesis.

I know that the Israel Lobby is not just another Lobby, but then I come at the issue from Eastern European studies, where it is a truism that the Polish Socialist Party constituted a 40 year conspiracy to create an independent Polish state.

Yet if we accept the M&W thesis of a super-Lobby that occasionally engages in behavior that looks like espionage, why couldn’t it engage in the occasional subversion?

Pipes has been working on his grand unified Islamic threat theory since the early 1980s. It only takes enough people in the right place to turn it into an essential component of the epistemic culture of the US governmental bureaucracy.

I have looked in detail at the three critical anti-American actions attributed to directly to Bin-Ladin and his al-Qaeda “command center”:

  1. The African embassy attacks,
  2. The Cole attack, and
  3. 9/11

Alleged al-Qaeda member Haroun Fazul, whose whereabouts is unknown, is supposed to connect the operation to Bin-Ladin. Without him, of course, there is no proof of a connection.

I will grant that a Bin-Ladin connection to the Cole attack makes sense because the US had tried to shove a cruise missile up Bin-Ladin’s butt, but what exactly was Bin-Ladin supposed to have done in the Cole attack? It was committed with a dinghy and explosives, which are not exactly rare commodities in Yemen.

As for 9/11, Khaled Shaykh Muhammad is usually credited as the mastermind. There is one probable meeting between Muhammad and Bin-Ladin in 1997 and one alleged meeting after the operation had already started.

What exactly was Bin-Ladin’s role.

Did Muhammad ask for money in 1997? Bin-Ladin had none.

Did Muhammad ask for Bin-Ladin’s blessing? So what? There are at least a billion people on the planet that hate the USA and would give a blessing to practically any attack on the USA.

Bin-Ladin’s blessing and about $1.10 will get you a coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts.

I have read through the Mary Jo White’s indictment of Bin-Ladin. It is the usual gibberish that I associate with Daniel Pipes.

Obviously, the USA has a real problem, but cost-benefit analysis only scratches the surface of Jewish Zionist subversion.

Here are some relevant blog entries:

Daniel Pipes: Saudia in the Gun Sights

Phil Weiss: Herzl and Normalizing Jewish Power

BTW, I know more about transnational Jewish-Zionist politics than probably anyone.

At this point whether you are Thomas Hegghammer or Stephen Walt, you should probably be looking at this topic in order to make sense of current international politics.

In [wvns] Anti-Islam fascism on rise in France, I mention that Boston Jewish-Zionist Islamophobic politics is seeping into French national controversies and provide a link to my discussion of the manipulation of Dutch national politics by Boston Jewish Zionist hate-mongers.

Anyway, Professor Walt answers his email. Why don’t you write him directly?

In Re: [Mondoweiss] Mix the ‘barrage’ with compassion so as to break thru to Jews

August 19, 2009

I commented on Mix the ‘barrage’ with compassion so as to break thru to Jews:

Phil is fighting with identity politics.

It is one of the toughest nuts to crack, but there are successful countermeasures that I can trace at least to the last quarter of the 19th century.

My group is called Ethnic Ashkenazim Against Zionist Israel because a lot of the participants still identify with their heritage but not with Zionism or present-day Judaism.

In the case of Marion Dreyfus

I have the impression that she depends on Jewish Zionist social networks for income.

One can become defensive when one’s livelihood is at stake even if the underlying subtext is never consciously or explicitly part of the discussion. To persuade her, it is not sufficient for Phil to be right or compassionate.

In Re: [National Post] Downtown bistro hit with controversy over Dead Sea Scroll boycott

August 17, 2009

I added the following comment to Downtown bistro hit with controversy over Dead Sea Scroll boycott.

barad11 is shoveling the usual Zionist disinformatsia.

I just posted my latest blog entry on the subject of ROM and the Dead Sea Scroll’s. The article is entitled Erasing Palestinian and Jewish History.

It links to Ali Mustafa’s analysis of the 1956 Hague Convention,

  1. which Zionists conveniently ignore,
  2. to which Canada has bound itself, and
  3. which certainly applies to the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Israeli Zionists and modern Jews in general have no legitimate claim whatsoever to the Dead Sea Scrolls, which are the cultural product of the ancestors of native Palestinian population.

In Stolen and Occupied Palestine, Zionists are racist, murderous, genocidal invaders, interlopers, thieves, and usurpers, who deserve the scorn and hatred of the entire human race.

In Re: [Mondoweiss] Question never ends… What kind of Israel do you want?

August 17, 2009

I commented on Question never ends… What kind of Israel do you want?:

When Agha and Malley write

“Both positions enjoy broad support within their respective communities. Few Israelis quarrel with the insistence that Israel be recognized as a Jewish state. It encapsulates their profound aspiration, rooted in the history of the Jewish people, for a fully accepted presence in the land of their forebears — for an end to Arab questioning of Israel’s legitimacy, the specter of the Palestinian refugees’ return and any irredentist sentiment among Israel’s Arab citizens.

they are regurgitating Zionist propaganda and pandering Jewish racism: Globe Reports Israel Twists History.

The US government can only be incentivized to solve the problem if patriotic pro-Palestinian, anti-Zionist, and anti-Israel activists start talking about the damage that the alliance with Israel does to the USA because then indifferent Americans will begin to hate and to despise the State of Israel and the Israel-firsters among the US population.

Israel advocates will never let up on Arab Americans, Muslim Americans, and critics of Zionism, and they will distort American politics, American law, and American business in order to maintain unquestioned American support for the alliance with Israel and in order to keep themselves on the gravy train of US subsidies to Israel and of US expenditures to maintain the Zionist state in the ME: Battle Waged in Boston over New Mosque.

The real question is “What kind of USA do you want?” When activists begin to ask that question, Zionism and the State of Israel will fall.

In Re: [Islam in Europe] London: MP walks out of segregated wedding

August 16, 2009

I commented on the blog entry entitled London: MP walks out of segregated wedding:

Comment 1

Gender segregation has certainly always been characteristic of Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jewish weddings that I have attended in NY City and in Spring Valley, and in my experience no distinction is made between Jewish and non-Jewish attendees.

Gender segregation is hardly unknown among Orthodox Christians whether Slavic, Greek or Arabic in the Balkans and the Middle East.

MP Jim Fitzpatrick is engaging in some sort of ridiculous scare-mongering against Islam, and one hopes that his consituents will punish him severely at the polls.

Comment 2

When I attended an orthodox Jewish wedding of a friend, who became a hozer bitshuvah via Ohr Somayach, I asked why gender separation was applied to everyone, and the Rabbi told me that one could never be certain a guest was not Jewish and that some Jews might want to sit at mixed tables if there were mixed tables for non-Jews. He pointed out that putting a stumbling block before the blind was one of the worst sins.
