Introduction by Dr. Kevin Barrett

In his new article “Silencing Diversity in the Name of Diversity” Gilad Atzmon argues Frankfurt School driven identity politics represents “a well-orchestrated attempt to obliterate our Western Athenian ethos in favor of a new Jerusalemite regime of ‘correctness.’”

Gilad’s new article was inspired by the Deep Truth Conference Zionism panel that he and I participated in. (Here is the link to the whole conference.)

In the new article, Gilad writes:

‘Phobia’ is defined as an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. Accordingly, the notion of ‘Islamophobia,’ attributes irrationality or even madness to those who oppose Muslims and Islam….But fear of Muslims might be rational. As things stand, we in the West have been actively engaged in the destruction of Muslims and their countries for at least a century.”

Gilad’s point—that we need to distinguish rational from irrational elements of Islamophobia, Judeophobia, homophobia, etc.—is well taken. But if we accept his invitation and ask ourselves “how rational is the Islamophobia around us” we discover that it is almost entirely irrational. While the West has indeed been “actively engaged in the destruction of Muslims,” the chances that any given Western person will suffer or die in a Muslim revenge attack are essentially zero. (Terrorism is statistically a non-threat, far less dangerous than bathtubs and lightning, and Muslims commit less than 5% of the terrorist attacks in the West.) An American who fears Muslims because the West has been destroying Muslims is just as crazy as an American who fears Native Americans or Blacks or Chinese or Hindus or Buddhists because of the crimes of the West against those groups.

It is, of course, conceivable that some Muslim or Muslims (or Native Americans, Blacks, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.) will one day manage to wreak such massive revenge against the West, perhaps though a bioweapon targeting white people, that in retrospect fear of whichever group the “terrorist” emerged from will seem rational. But obviously hating on people today will not prevent such an attack tomorrow! On the contrary, it will make it more likely. Considered rationally, the Islamophobic discourse, which is actually a discourse of hate more than fear, is obviously counterproductive in terms of defusing the rather vague, nebulous, and improbable potential threats that might emerge from “angry Muslims” (or angry Native Americans, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.)

While ordinary Western people have no rational reason for Islamophobia, Zionist and neoliberal elites have good reasons to fear Islam. Muslims are the backbone of opposition to Zionism and usury, both of which are crucial to the neoliberal financier elites. To the extent that Islam triumphs, the Zionists and usury banksters will lose their ill-gotten gains along with most of their power and privileges. So the Zionist elite’s decision to orchestrate 9/11 in order to brainwash ordinary people into irrationally hating Islam was indeed rational, given that elite’s desire to maintain and expand its power and privileges.

This EDL guy wants less Muslims & more people like him in the UK

This interview was aired as part of a documentary for Press TV on the 9th March 2011. Watch how ridiculous this particular EDL supporter’s answers to the reporter’s questions are. I think this really is indicative of the stupidity and idiocy of the EDL rank and file, they are being used as a part of a pan-Europeon anti-Muslim agenda. It is time people wake up!

Charlie Hebdo is rife with the choking hypocrisy that has become commonplace in the post 9/11 world

 

Media Spinning of Charlie Hebdo Killings Ignites Wave of Anti-Muslim Fury

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Media-Spinning-of-Charlie-by-Donn-Marten-Anti-Muslim_Brainwashing_Charlie-Hebdo_Demagoguery-150112-808.html

The outpouring of support for anti-Muslim bigotry in the aftermath of last week’s outrageous attack on French ‘satirical’ newspaper Charlie Hebdo is rife with the choking hypocrisy that has become commonplace in the post 9/11 world.

The attack on the paper’s Paris office and the murders of ten staff members as well as two police officers was a despicable act of violence but it was not an attack on free speech no matter how hard that the media sells the narrative. If officials are to be believed – lying is typically always their first if not only resort – then the attack was the work of radical Islamist extremists waging jihad against the west.

Considering that Charlie Hebdo was a forum for so many vile and repulsive cartoons mocking the prophet Mohammed as well as portraying Muslims in the most insulting, stereotypical ways possible, that wouldn’t be a reach. It would hardly be surprising that the paper would be targeted by such types because quite frankly, when you make a living out of baiting religious fanatics don’t be surprised if one day they turn up on your doorstep.

While it is true that Charlie Hebdo also published repugnant imagery of other religions — including Jesus Christ engaging in anal sex — they were a minority among those ridiculing Muslims. The one inescapable fact is that Charlie Hebdo was a hate rag and a hypocritical one at that. A former writer was sent packing for “inciting racial hatred” after writing a column alleged to be critical of Jews. He was subsequently put on trial by that bastion of freedom that is France. So much for the all-inclusive mockery that the corrupt media has invoked as a smokescreen for the paper’s blatant anti-Muslim agenda.

Julius Streicher, who was hanged with other Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg ran a fine little paper back in the day that was famous for publishing cartoons and editorials that mocked and denigrated a particular religion. Der Sturmer was instrumental in fomenting the climate of hatred that would lead to the state sponsored extermination of over 6 million Jews. Like Charlie Hebdo, Der Sturmer also mixed in cartoons that smeared Catholics and others to provide some ‘balance’ but the primary purpose was to dehumanize Jews, just as Charlie Hebdo does with Muslims.

The French paper was just another propaganda arm of the powerful anti-Muslim hate network, a foreign counterpart to domestic American chop shops the likes of Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch, Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative, Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT! For America and David Horowitz’s Front Page Magazine being but a few of the more widely known hate factories of which there are legion.

The massive rally in Paris on Sunday – hijacked by murderous scum the likes of Israel’s megalomaniac leader Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu who stands to benefit the most from the calls for blood vengeance against Muslims – is a grim harbinger for the wave of hate and repression that is about to be unleashed.

Netanyahu drew some criticism for his comments that the September 11, 2001 “terrorist” attacks were “good for Israel” and is already eagerly exploiting the Charlie Hebdo murders. The acceptance of the Palestinians by the International Criminal Court (ICC) didn’t get much media play, being immediately swallowed by the Paris murders but Bibi and his stooges in the U.S. Congress will exact their pound of flesh soon enough. Avenging ten dead anti-Muslim propagandists and two cops will serve as their rallying cry.

The most troubling aspect of the Charlie Hebdo killings is the response, particularly in the American Homeland. The hysterical state-corporate media has been pushing all of the right buttons, especially at CNN which has turned itself into a propaganda arm of the Deep State elements that are itching for a global war on Muslims to compensate for flagging ratings.

CNN has brought in the retired ultra-fascist Mike Rogers who used his position as boss of the House Intelligence Committee to defend the NSA and surveillance state and regularly took to the Sunday morning airwaves to peddle lies. Rogers churned out more whoppers than Burger King when the media still saw fit to report on the actions of heroic former government contractor turned NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. He regularly accused Snowden of being a Russian agent, but never bothered to offer any proof. He will be a natural fit at CNN now that he has a regular nationally televised pulpit to his lies preach from.

The fear is being ratcheted up over Charlie Hebdo and the neocons who effectively run U.S. foreign and domestic policy are using the Rahm Emanuel maxim of “never let a serious crisis go to waste” by using the incident to push for Draconian enhancements to the already choking national security state. It has come to this in America, the murder of a dozen people in a f*cking foreign country can be used as a mobilizing force to push the Clash of Civilizations. The star spangled sheep have been so conditioned now that it doesn’t even take the destruction of skyscrapers to whip them up into an orgiastic blood frenzy.

The murders also nicely coincide with the beginning of the next iteration of the permanent political campaign that will culminate in the coronation of Barack Obama’s successor in 2016. The Republicans assuredly will sink to new lows in fear-mongering and demagoguery over the Muslim phantom menace as they troll for the rubes. The Hillary Clinton led Democrats will match the rhetoric of their more overtly fascist counterparts blow for blow.

That liberals are so eagerly signing up in the western war on Muslims with their “I am Charlie” proclamations and articles supporting “freedom” of the press shows that they are as easily duped as low-information conservatives. One of the most cherished “liberal” voices is that of HBO’s virulently bigoted Bill Maher whose professed atheism is a cloak for his foaming at the mouth hatred of Muslims. Whether he is really an atheist or just plays one on television is a matter of speculation. So incessant has the brainwashing been, thanks to over a decade of post September 11, 2001 agitprop, that it is clear just how quickly that Muslims will be targeted if there happens to be some sort of “terrorist” attack that takes place on domestic soil.

The Charlie Hebdo attack is a tragedy on multiple fronts and there are many who will suffer as a result. The first tragedy is of course that of the actual victims whose lives were so brutally ended on that day and whatever they may have been guilty as far as agitation and promulgating hate they did not deserve that. The people of France are also victims and once their fear and outpouring of emotion over the murders dissipates they will soon see that it has provided renewed justification for a crackdown by authorities. French military troops are already being put on the streets – unsubstantiated reports of sleeper cell activation was reported – while the governments of Europe and the U.S. ponder additional enhancements to the imperial security state. Americans will also continue to lose as the Constitution will become even more detached from the government, money that could be better used domestically will be spent on more foreign interventions, domestic spying and a burgeoning security state beast that can never eat enough.

Lastly, the millions of Muslims who practice their religion and abhor violence will increasingly be targeted by restrictions on their freedom, invasion of their privacy and of course violence against themselves and their places of worship. When you have a powerful, connected, global media mogul like Rupert Murdoch whose immediate reaction to the Charlie Hebdo attacks was to launch a Tweet that called for holding all Muslims “responsible” for the actions of extremists it carries clout. Particularly to that particular American based demographic who rely solely on Fox News for their information and are already itching to lock and load over the percolating domestic problems of race in the aftermath of Ferguson and New York City. It is inevitable that official state crackdowns will be accompanied by pogroms given the level of poison that has been dumped into the mass media over the years.

While history always repeats – although never exactly – it is apparent that Muslims are well on the way to becoming the new Juden thanks to those who benefit by exploiting tragedy to serve their own ends.

 

The Zionist Strategy Of Demonizing Islam

Via Intifadah Palestine

Part 3 of 4: Financial Warfare Global Campaign
Bishop Donald R. Corder  –  Intifada Palestine

By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move the mobs and with their hands we shall wipe out all those who hinder us on our way. This hatred will be still further magnified by the effects of an Economic Crisis, which will stop dealing on the exchanges and bring industry to a standstill. We shall create by all the secret subterranean methods open to us and with the aid of gold, which is all in our hands, a Universal Economic Crisis whereby we shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously in all the countries of Europe. These mobs will rush delightedly to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they have envied from their cradles, and whose property they will then be able to loot. Jews will be safe. Excerpts from “Protocols of the Meetings of the 70 Learned Elders of Zion.”

In July, 1944, during World War II, economist John Maynard Keynes of England, and Harry Dexter White of the United States, organized the United Nations’ Monetary and Financial Conference (or Bretton Woods Conference) in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, to lay out a plan of stabilizing the world economy. In the early 1960′s, the American economy began declining, and the international situation became unbalanced again. On August 15, 1971, President Nixon announced a new economic policy. The dollar was devalued, and its convertibility to gold was suspended. These moves, offered relief to the country’s economic woes, but was an indication that he was retreating from the global policies which were formulated during the 1960′s.

This series of drastic changes in the U.S. international policy motivated David Rockefeller (a Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and head of the Illuminati in the U.S.), who, after attending the Bilderberg Conference (a Jewish Who’s Who) and consulting Zbigniew Brzezinski, wanted to “bring the best brains in the world to bear on problems of the future.” Speaking at Chase Manhattan International Financial Forums in London, Brussels, Montreal, and Paris, he proposed the creation of an International Commission of Peace and Prosperity (which would later become the Trilateral Commission) in early 1972. “The Trialateral Commission: Final Warning: A History of the New World Order” by David Allen Rivera.

Journalist Bill Moyers a member of the Council of Foreign Relations  (CFR), wrote about the power of purported House of Rothschild stooge David Rockefeller in 1980: “David Rockefeller is the most conspicuous representative today of the ruling class, a multinational fraternity of men who shape the global economy and manage the flow of its capital…Private citizen David Rockefeller is accorded privileges of a head of state…He is untouched by customs or passport offices and hardly pauses for traffic lights.” In his 1979 book Who’s Running America?, Thomas Dye said that Rockefeller was the most powerful man in America. “…conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” —–David Rockefeller

For the Trilateral crowd, the game is about over and the endgame is at hand according to the recent reemergence of original members Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Brent Scowcroft and Paul Volker serves to reinforce the conclusion that the Zionist New International Economic Order is near. As serpentine agent for the Theodor Herzl Jewish State the Trilateral Commission and its members have engineered the global economic, trade and financial system that is currently in a state of total chaos. They are using the crisis to destroy what remains of national sovereignty, so that a New Zionist World Order can finally and permanently be put into place.

The Obama presidency was elected by promising to bring change, yet from the start change was never envisioned. He was carefully groomed and financed by the Trilateral Commission and their friends. In short, Obama is merely the continuation of disastrous, non-American policies that have brought economic ruin upon us and the rest of the world. The Obama experience rivals that of Jimmy Carter, whose campaign slogan was “I will never lie to you.”  The August Review Global Elite Research Center Obama: Trilateral Commission Endgame by Patrick Wood, Editor January 30, 2009.

No other people in the history of mankind have assembled themselves against the world according to the Zionist design for global domination. Wherein, the Protocols energizing Theodore Herzl’s Jewish State reads, “We must arm ourselves with all the weapons which our opponents might employ against us. The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces – are all essential for the completion of the aforementioned plans. We must be in a position to respond to every act of opposition by war with the neighbors of that country which dares to oppose us: but if these neighbors should also venture to stand collectively together against us, then we must offer resistance by a universal war. The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of the diplomat.”

“We must compel the governments of the GOYIM (non-Jews) to take action in the direction favored by our widely conceived plan, already approaching the desired consummation, by what we shall represent as public opinion, secretly promoted by us through the means of that so-called “Great Power” – The press, which, with a few exceptions that may be disregarded, is already entirely in our hands. In a word, to sum up our system of keeping the governments of the goyim in Europe in check, we shall show our strength to one of them by terrorist attempts and to all, if we allow the possibility of a general rising against us, we shall respond with the guns of America or China or Japan.” (The Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905; Japan; Iraq and Afghanistan – Ed.).

We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National auto-determination practiced in past centuries.– David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991. Quotes by Rockefellers.

Dark guile giving birth to these governing Protocols provides the collective genius of a people who relegate the Palestinian peoples as mere animals and bring the notions of their racial superiority and global conquest to the negotiation tables. Through reading the Protocols, The Jewish Talmud and “The Jewish State” written by Father of Modern Zionism, the late Theodore Herzl we engage the wars that are fought for control of our minds, self-interests and agendas. Quantum breakthrough in every facet of diplomacy, business and return of the Golan Heights is accomplished when we open our eyes to see that we are dealing with a spiritual monster whose design is to devour whatever decency we have in our Goyim hearts and suck our blood according to the writings of their books.

Direct negotiations have no place for an Arab win in the annals of Zionist literature. Where Netanyahu’s recent declaration, that there is to be no Palestinian State in the foreseeable future. His latest published confession of having lied to President Bill Clinton was necessitated in order to destroy the Oslo Accords. Or how within these last weeks the United Nations and President Obama were employed to cry out for calm after Lebanese border dispute and Israel returns to complete the demolition of Lebanese property having quieted the overt hostilities.

“The trick,” Netanyahu says, “is not to be there [in the occupied territories] and be broken; the trick is to be there and pay a minimal price.” …Hence the saying:  If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.  If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. Sun Tzu… “The Art of War.”

Until there is an American Intifada of Zionist and a global awakening to the madness framing the lusts of the Zionist pursuit. The people of the Middle East must stop, consider and shake off the historic usury of American foreign aid after the manner of Lebanon’s Defense Minister Elias al-Murr. Who told reporters, …any party that wished to help the military had to do so without any conditions. “This person wants to make military aid conditional on not protecting (Lebanon’s) land, people and borders against Israeli aggression. Let them keep their money or give it to Israel. We will confront (Israel) with the capabilities we own.” Complexities facing the ruling elite and sovereign must serve to bring the people’s of the region closer with that leadership in order to diffuse the Zionist agendas and terrors referred to in the Protocols levied against them.

Let us not go quietly into the night of eternity or national obliteration. Rather, let those who pray…PRAY.  Those who organize…ORGANIZE. Those on the inside…LEAK. Those who care…REMEMBER … “Her eyes are Palestinian. Her name is Palestinian. Her dress and sorrow Palestinian. Her kerchief, her feet and body Palestinian. Her words and silence Palestinian. Her voice Palestinian. Her birth and her death Palestinian …”Mahmoud Darwish.

Paul Balles : Islamophobia and hate crimes

Paul Balles

– 30. May, 2010

A hate crime or bias motivated crime occurs when the perpetrator of the crime intentionally selects the victim because of his or her membership in a certain group.
According to The Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law, 12 in 100,000 Muslims were reported as being the victim of hate crimes. It’s important to note that 15 in 100,000 Jews were reported being the victims of hate crimes.

The significant difference comes in the handling of these crimes.  Critical comments that associate anyone with being Jewish are simply forbidden. While a criminal like Bernie Madoff was referred to as Jewish, it was usually with a rejection of his Jewishness.
Forums recorded remarks like “Madoff is an embarrassment to our community. How does one get so greedy? It reinforces all the stereotypes about Jews. Very sad indeed.”
When a Muslim does something wrong, he’s portrayed as a member of an extremist religion. Popular expressions refer to a Muslim as a jihadist. Jihad is simply the process of “exerting the best efforts,” involving some form of “struggle” and “resistance”, to achieve a particular goal.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Washington-based Islamic advocacy group, reported anti-Islamic remarks by a range of American and Canadian public figures, “from congressional candidates to syndicated columnists. [They] have portrayed Islam as ‘murderous’ and Palestinians as ‘lower than pond scum’ or ‘ragheads’  ’sh*t …turds.’ ”

After 9/11, on Sept 17, 2001, CNN reported that “hate crimes against Muslims and southeast Asians have risen exponentially across the U.S. in the wake of Tuesday’s terror attacks.”
CAIR says it received more than 300 reports of harassment and abuse from Tuesday through Thursday night; nearly half the number it received all last year.  In Chicago, a man (who wasn’t Muslim) was beaten for being Muslim by someone who claimed he was “helping the fight against terrorism”.

In March 2009, Daniel Pipes updated an article he wrote in 2004, attempting to debunk the existence of hate crimes against Muslims in the US. Pipes is one of the worst of the breed of media Islamophobes.

The Guardian UK reports on a study written by a former Scotland Yard counter-terrorism officer Dr Jonathan Githens-Mazer and former special branch detective Dr Robert Lambert, now in the University of Exeter’s European Muslim research centre.
“The report provides prima facie and empirical evidence to demonstrate that assailants of Muslims are invariably motivated by a negative view of Muslims they have acquired from either mainstream or extremist nationalist reports or commentaries in the media.”
An apt description of the effects of the kind of bilge put out by extremist provokers of hate crimes like Daniel Pipes. Islamophobes, like Pipes, who preach in public forums have been free to do what is forbidden when referring to Jews.

Very simply, Islamophobia is the fear or hatred of Islam or Muslims. According to a 2009 Washington Post — ABC news statistics, almost 48 percent (a shift from 24 percent in 2002) of Americans have unfavourable attitudes towards Muslims.
As freelance writer Dina Malki has pointed out, “right-wing media commentators use terms like ‘Islamic terrorism’ and ‘violent Islam’ to portray Islam as a barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist religion.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has described Islamophobia as a term that “refers to unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam. Such fear and hostility leads to discriminations against Muslims, exclusion of Muslims from mainstream political or social process, stereotyping, the presumption of guilt by association, and finally hate crimes.”

Thus, the connection between Islamophobia and hate crimes still being committed against Muslims suggests the dire need of a campaign against Islamophobes.

ADL’S VIEWS SHOULD NOT BE TAKENSERIOUSLY

DesertPeace

March 28, 2010 at 14:32 (ADL Hatemongering, Israel, zionist harassment)

It must have been a slow week in the offices of the ADL…. they seem to have found time to dig up some dirt on Jimmy Carter and throw it in his face…..

BUT….. they obviously did not read the second linked article on this post or they might not be so quick to condemn.

ADL: Carter has reverted to anti-Israel stance, despite recent apology

Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter’s apology to the Jewish community over his anti-Israel views should not be taken seriously, an Anti-Defamation League statement said Sunday, claiming that Carter had continued attacking Israel even after sending an apologetic letter to the leaders of the U.S. Jewish community.

Perhaps the reasons for Carter’s positions can be found in the following…..


Israel should thank Obama for acting like a friend
By Gideon Levy

If Israel had a real peace camp, if the silent majority had broken its sickly silence, if more Israelis approached the situation as a collective rather than individuals yearning for the next holiday or car, if more Israelis refused to accept blindly the deceptions of Israeli diplomacy and propaganda, Rabin Square would have been filled with demonstrators yesterday. Among the banners and flags, one sign would have stood out in this hour of risks and fateful decisions: “Thank you, friend.” Thank you, Barack Obama, friend of Israel.

Anti-Semitism: Zionism’s Indispensable Alibi

by Maidhc Ó Cathail
(Thursday, March 18, 2010)

“…are Professors Mearsheimer and Walt engaged in hate propaganda by documenting the harmful influence of the Israel lobby over US foreign policy? Or is former US President Jimmy Carter a “bigot” for comparing the Israeli occupation of Palestine to apartheid South Africa? Are the survivors of the USS Liberty who refuse to remain silent about Israel’s deliberate attack on their ship merely motivated by hatred of Jews? Is Professor Norman Finkelstein a “self-hating Jew” for exposing the Holocaust Industry’s corruption of history and memory in the service of an extortion racket? And is UN special rapporteur Richard Falk also “self-hating” for likening Israel’s actions against the besieged Gazans to what the Nazis did to Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto?”

Although Zionism typically represents itself as the solution to anti-Semitism, the truth is less flattering. In fact, hostility toward Jews is indispensable to the cause of Jewish nationalism. If anti-Semitism didn’t exist, Zionists would have to invent it. And in many cases that is precisely what they have done.

Contrary to the widespread perception that Zionism opposes anti-Semitism, its adherents have occasionally revealed a more ambivalent attitude to Jew-hatred. In 1895, Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism, prophetically wrote in his Diaries, “Anti-Semites will become our surest friends, anti-Semitic countries our allies.” Even the suffering inflicted on European Jewry by the Nazi holocaust doesn’t seem to have unduly tempered such cynicism. In 1995, Jay Lefkowitz, an American government official, told the New York Times Magazine, “Deep down, I believe that a little anti-Semitism is a good thing for the Jews–reminds them who they are.”

If Zionist extremists can’t provoke the desired level of anti-Semitism to advance their goals, they are even prepared to fake it. A 1952 article in Davar, the official organ of Mapai, the party of the then Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, suggested sending a team of saboteurs “to help redeem Jews” from the countries where they are “absorbed in sinful self-satisfaction.”

“The task of these young men,” the article explained, “would be to disguise themselves as non-Jews, and, acting upon the brutal Zionism, plague these Jews with anti-Semitic slogans, such as ‘Bloody Jew,’ ‘Jews go to Palestine,’ and similar ‘intimacies.’”

Lest anyone doubt that the Israeli government would ever contemplate carrying out such a cynical plot to encourage Jews to move to Israel, the “rescue” of about 125,000 Iraqi Jews in the early 1950s involved far worse acts. “In attempts to portray the Iraqis as anti-American and to terrorize the Jews,” wrote former CIA officer Wilbur Eveland in Ropes of Sand, “the Zionists planted bombs in the U.S. Information Service library and in synagogues. Soon leaflets began to appear urging Jews to flee to Israel.”

Whatever about posing as “Arab anti-Semites,” one might think that Zionists would draw the line at a post-Holocaust sponsorship of Nazism. Yet this is exactly what a leading Canadian Zionist organization has been accused of. “In the 1960s, the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) paid John Garrity, a small-time mercenary, to build up the fledgling Canadian Nazi Party,” reveals Ezra Levant in Shakedown. When the embarrassing truth emerged, it was justified by the CJC as an attempt to learn more about neo-Nazism. However, the real purpose, according to the Jewish Canadian writer, was to provide “a pretext for the addition of ‘hate’ laws to the criminal code.”

While “hate” sounds like something that all decent people would condemn, one man’s hate may be another man’s righteous indignation. Zionists, for example, tend to conflate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism, and, therefore, as something that could be considered a “hate crime.”

But are Professors Mearsheimer and Walt engaged in hate propaganda by documenting the harmful influence of the Israel lobby over US foreign policy? Or is former US President Jimmy Carter a “bigot” for comparing the Israeli occupation of Palestine to apartheid South Africa? Are the survivors of the USS Liberty who refuse to remain silent about Israel’s deliberate attack on their ship merely motivated by hatred of Jews? Is Professor Norman Finkelstein a “self-hating Jew” for exposing the Holocaust Industry’s corruption of history and memory in the service of an extortion racket? And is UN special rapporteur Richard Falk also “self-hating” for likening Israel’s actions against the besieged Gazans to what the Nazis did to Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto?

In each of these cases, by no means an exhaustive list, the charge of anti-Semitism, rather than serving to protect Jewish people from defamation, has been used to obscure Zionist crimes.

However, as Zionist criminality becomes increasingly transparent, there will most likely be a sharp rise in anti-Semitism worldwide. No doubt much of it will be the result of genuine, albeit misdirected, anger as the extent of Zionist crimes against humanity becomes more widely known. But considering Zionism’s history of faking attacks on Jews, we can expect at least some of this “hate” to be the work of Jewish extremists who disingenuously claim to be fighting anti-Semitism.

Perhaps it’s time for those who are genuinely concerned about combating hatred in the world to heed the words of Israel Shahak. As the great Israeli humanist concluded in his classic Jewish History, Jewish Religion, “Although the struggle against antisemitism (and of all other forms of racism) should never cease, the struggle against Jewish chauvinism and exclusivism … is now of equal or greater importance.”
