Judaism as anti-Semitism
New in the Website
Not even passionate Zionists would attack me for claiming Zionists and Israel have conducted false flag attacks against Jews and allies in order to achieve political gains. Yet, out of the extraordinary care I take while denouncing Zionists – after all they have proven to be brutally violent towards me more than once - I want to mention two events.
Some may object my mentioning events like the 1950-1951 Baghdad Bombings, in which Jewish targets in that city were bombed. Some Iraqi Jews claim these were carried with the help of Mossad in order to force the migration of Iraqi Jews to the then new State of Israel; the state needed a cheap and defenseless force of labor. Supporting this is the fact that following the attacks Iraqi authorities arrested 28 Jews and 9 Arabs on charges of espionage and illegal arms possession. The Iraqi Jewish anti-Zionist author Naeim Giladi claims the bombings were "perpetrated by Zionist agents in order to cause fear amongst the Jews, and so promote their exodus to Israel." Uri Avnery and Marion Wolfsohn have publicly sanctioned this claim. It is also supported by Wilbur Crane Eveland, a former senior officer in the American CIA in his book "Ropes of Sand." From time to time, some of those who became practically forced slaves in Israel tell similar stories in the Israeli media. The following day, the same newspapers claim they are “self-hating Jews,” “mad,” “communists,” “Arab-sympathizers” or whatever the state-censor thinks is best to discredit their testimony. In The Cross of Bethlehem I expand on additional examples of Zionist slaves.
As said, some Zionists may question these examples. You know what, my dear Zionist Big Brother? OK, let’s skip these solid testimonies for the sake of a better one, the Unfortunate Affair. “Haesek Bish” as it is known in Hebrew, refers to a failed Israeli covert false flag operation, Operation Susannah, conducted in Egypt in the summer of 1954. A group of Egyptian Jews were recruited by Israeli military intelligence in order to plant bombs inside Egyptian, American and British-owned targets. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian Communists, "unspecified malcontents" or "local nationalists" with the aim of creating a climate of violence and instability, and so allowing the British government to retain its occupying troops in the Suez Canal. (This is the moment to casually mention that Facebook, which partially triggered the recent events in the Arab world, is owned by a sayan of the Mossad.) After the Unfortunate Affair became public, Pinhas Lavon, then Israel’s Minister of Defense, was forced to resign. In 2005 the surviving agents were formally honored with a certificate of appreciation by the Israeli President Moshe Katzav, who later became a convicted rapist.
I gave two very different examples of the same institutional crimes committed by Israel and the Zionist leadership. This list can be easily expanded, but I’ll avoid transforming this article into a tedious list of crimes. This is enough to stop Zionists of claiming this article is baseless, and that’s good enough for me.
“After all, how difficult can it be? Let’s make a state law for that and everything will be fine!” Thinking in such a way and without checking the issue, the Knesset, Israel's Parliament, legislated the Law of Return On July 5, 1950. The law gives automatic citizenship upon landing in the state to those born Jews (having a Jewish mother or maternal grandmother), those with Jewish ancestry (having a Jewish father or grandfather) and converts to Judaism (Orthodox, Reform, or Conservative denominations, though the last two must take place outside the state since these currents are not recognized by the Chief Rabbinate).
The day after, the confused cleaning lady of the Knesset asked the Prime Minister: “Who is a Jew?” Annoyed, the Prime Minister exiled her to Zambia and forgot her question. Until this day it remains unanswered and at the very heart of the State of Israel. Simply, it doesn’t differentiate between the ethnic group and the religion. Each one of these categories is open to different interpretations. Under certain interpretations, many millions of Muslims in Afghanistan and nearby Central Asian locations could ask for automatic Israeli citizenship and transform the human landscape of Israel overnight. The political leadership of the state is very careful not to touch this law anymore and to delegate personal issues (birth, marriage, death and in fact all religious matters) to the Chief Rabbinate. It’s a boiling potato.
Even in Israel many citizens do not understand the issue properly. Israel likes to portray itself as a Western country, but its foundations are deep within Asia. There are two basic models upon which nations are based. One is territorial, claiming a country exists in a given territory; this is the situation in the Americas and Europe (the last may be changing, see the ugly treatment of Muslims in France). The second is ethnic, claiming a nation is formed by individuals belonging to a given ethnic group. Many Asians countries belong to this category; Thailand is a good example. The early Thai kingdoms were almost nomadic in nature, moving slowly southwards from Xishuangbanna – in Yunnan, China – to Thailand’s actual location. These kingdoms were defined not by territory but by the people composing them. It is so to such an extreme, that only in 1913, the significant Chinese minority got citizenship.
By legislating the Law of Return, the State of Israel placed itself among this group of ethnic nations. It could have worked if it wasn’t for one tiny detail: “Who is a Jew?” I could begin now a long analysis of the issue, but it would just be ugly racism. The last has become a key characteristic of the State of Israel. I have described it in The Cross of Bethlehem and in various articles in this website. The ugly manifestations vary from a former president fastidiously claiming he’s a Sameh Tet (acronym for “Pure Spaniard,” as if he was a pure breed dog), to ultraorthodox Jews refusing to marry Russian Jews due to ethnic concerns (yes, the Khazars question!). The Black Panters, Zohar Argov and rabbi Meshulam – among many others – can tell ugly stories of discrimination. What went wrong? A two millennia long Diaspora combined with mixed marriages along and across the world have created a reality in which the question “Who is a Jew?” cannot be answered on ethnic grounds anymore. Anybody attempting to do that and looking into the details would find what he could have guessed from the beginning: each one of us is a unique human being. Under these circumstances, creating an ethnically defined state was a sad error. Even a religious answer would have failed, because a careful look into the Bible would tell us who are the True People of Israel; and that’s an answer no Pharisaic rabbi – or his followers - would ever accept.
Odd Definitions Meet Odd Events
This reality poses a unique problem to the Jewish Zionist leadership: how can they unify a people who does not share religious, cultural, or ethnic backgrounds? There are two extraordinary answers to this, one is general to humanity while the second specific to Judaism.
“The year was 1983, but at school we were already studying Orwell’s 1984, a book which frightened us by its similarity to life in Israel. The Lebanon War, which had begun a year earlier, was still called “the War for the Peace of Galilee” by the government. The Hebrew possessive contraction brought together the two words which sounded exactly like “War-Peace,” creating a perfect Orwellian oxymoron. We all skipped the obvious contemporaneous context of the book in our commentaries; such semantics could belong only to the enemy and we lived in an enlightened society. Our government could not have made such an Orwellian choice consciously. And yet a little voice in my head told a different story, one that must be kept to myself. The glitch allowing such a subversive book to be on our reading list could only be interpreted as some inconsistency of the system. However, a frightening alternative explanation was that 1984 had been placed on the Education Ministry's official list of books intentionally, so that we would forever fear authority and behave. It was our first lesson in government manipulation of its people.”
This text belongs to The Cross of Bethlehem – The Memoirs of a Refugee, and describes the similarities between the Israeli society and the futuristic society described by George Orwell. Published in 1949, the book portrays a future world controlled by three superpowers engaged in a perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, public mind control, and an unending violation of human rights. A central point in this sad world is the constant manipulation of the language by the government. Many of the words and phrases coined by Orwell in this book had entered our daily lives: Big Brother, BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, doublethink, thoughtcrime, and Newspeak, are good examples of this. However, he did miss “War on Terror.” Shame on him.
If looking at the reality described there in a too literal way, we may fail to see how the horror described by Orwell has been implemented by modern governments; the Israeli Administration is probably one of the best in this aspect. The “War-Peace-Galilee” example I mentioned above is probably one of the pinnacles of Israeli totalitarianism, but not the only one. Another famous example occurred in 2006. "Kidnapped Soldiers" blared the Israeli headlines in 2006, after a soldier was captured in Gaza and two in Southern Lebanon. I was surprised. Since when is a soldier "kidnapped?" Were they watering their mothers' gardens at the time? No, they were participating in military events. Soldiers are never kidnapped; they are captured. Afterwards they should be treated according to the Geneva Convention. That one simple semantic deceit by the Israeli media kidnapped the nation's mind and the IDF launched a disastrous attack on Lebanon, which ended in a bitter defeat of the IDF by the Hezbollah. Creating an enemy is the quintessential answer for self-proclaimed-leaders seeking to unify their slaves.
The particular answer to the same issue is no less interesting. In 1946, Jean-Paul Sartre published "Anti-Semite and Jew" where he claimed Jews were nothing more than the product of … anti-Semitism; the same claim was done many years before that by Ahad Ha’am, an early Zionist publicist. In such reality, it is the anti-Semite who determines who is a Jew. As such, anti-Semitism is a key tool in the hands of the … Zionists leaders wishing to unify their slaves. Post-Christ Judaism does not exist as an ideology or a religion; it wouldn’t exist at all if it wasn’t for convenient anti-Semitic events that unify those who are not and cannot unite outside Jesus. From time to time, Zionist leaders are caught red-handed in this type of manipulations.
Not surprisingly the mantra-style answer of Israelis to any unpleasant events is: "the whole world is against us." Dear Israeli brothers – yes, let me use these words toward you for the first time in my life – it is not the world who is against you, it is your self-proclaimed-leaders who are against your freedom.
