I will tell you what Fake News Is

By Gilad Atzmon

Yesterday, in her first speech since losing the presidential election, Hillary Clinton called the rise of fake news an epidemic. “It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said.

But what is fake news?

Fake news is a deliberate and conscious attempt to spread disinformation.

Fake News is when ‘progressive’ Max Blumenthal fabricates a story on the Benghazi attack on the pages of the Guardian of Judea in order to divert attention away from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s blunders in Libya. Meanwhile, Papa Sidney Blumenthal, financially invested in reconstruction and regime change in Libya, sends the fallacious Guardian article to Secretary of State Clinton, to which she approvingly replies ‘your son is a Mitzvah.’

Maybe Hillary Clinton should tell us more about the Fake News epidemic.  It is indeed an infectious one. It seems as though Clinton was, herself, infected by the disease while in proximity of the Blumenthals.

Let’s hope that Hillary Clinton is recovered by now.

Is Bibi A Lizard?

Netanyahu’s recent ethnic-cleansing video offers us a spectacular glimpse into Jewish identity politics and the ease with which the Jews morph between ideology and political stance. In the video below, PM Netanyahu accuses the Palestinians and their supporters, by making it a condition of peace that Israel withdraws its illegal settlement, of leanings towards ethnic cleansing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfRe9BbEqiI

I am not here going to argue with Netanyahu’s ridiculous idea. I am obviously in total agreement with Gideon Levy and others who have taken the trouble, time and again, to prove that Israel is the only ethnic cleanser between the river and the sea.

But if Israel is the only ethnic cleanser in Palestine, then all Bibi is doing is simply projecting i.e. attributing his own racist symptoms onto the Palestinians and their supporters. Now, I’m no great fun of Freud and even less enthusiastic about his terminology, but he sure did help us understand the Jew or, shall we say, the Jewish psychological nature. Seemingly, projection is at the core of the Jewish psyche. Jews see racism everywhere, simply because they attribute their own racism to others. So, Netanyahu, in accusing others of ethnic cleansing, is simply projecting his own symptoms onto the Palestinians.

But it goes further. The concern with people being ethnically cleansed is a humanist, empathic position, traditionally associated within Left and progressive thought. It is in fact totally foreign to the Lebensraum, racist ideology that drives the Zionist precept of which PM Netanyahu is a devout follower.

So one may wonder how Bibi managed to transcend himself from oppressor to victim? How does he manage to so abruptly switch sides from being a practitioner of Lebensraum into a ‘progressive voice’? The answer is devastatingly simple. For a Jew to switch sides, to move from the hard right into the poetic left and vice versa is a mere verbal exercise. This capacity of metamorphosis is embedded within Jewish identity politics and I guess that Kafka was the first to point us towards it.

So, with a little help from Binyamin Netanyahu, Israelis mange to simultaneously be oppressors as well as victims. But are the anti Zionists that different?

How long did it take Max Blumenthal to morph from being an enthusiastic Zionist Nazi Hunter into a pro- Palestinian who only occasionally hates Germans for being White.  The same can be said about pretty much every Jewish Left and anti-Zionist organisation. They preach anti-racism in the name of the most enlightened liberal and progressive ideologies but at the same time, they themselves operate within racially inclusive political cells.

The so-called ‘antisemites – those who hate Jews for being Jews, used to refer to Jews as chameleons. They simply could not understand the lack of integrity at the heart of Jewish politics. They could not grasp how Jews switch allies so rapidly.

Netanyahu’s video this morning certainly made me wonder at how comfortable he seems lying compulsively in front of the camera. But what, I wonder, happens to Bibi when he faces himself, alone in the morning in front of the mirror? Who (or what) does he see in front of him? Is it the head of the Likud party? Is it a progressive humanist? Or is it simply a lizard, a chameleon who morphs constantly as it moves along.

I guess David Icke has, more than once, attempted to address this question…

Kevin Barrett’s and Greg McCarron look into Max Blumenthal’s affairs

September 02, 2016  /  Gilad Atzmon

You want to listen to this radio program:

Kevin Barrett’s:  Max Blumenthal – son of Zionist operator, Libya-destroyer, and Hillary confidante Sidney Blumenthal – is one of the highest-profile pro-Palestine Jews and foundation-funded “alternative” media luminaries. Though a notable truth-teller concerning on-the-ground realities in Occupied Palestine, Max Blumenthal occasionally mutates into a self-appointed thought-policeman. As if his past witch-hunts against Gilad Atzmon and Alison Weir were not shameful enough, Blumenthal has now taken it upon himself to decide who is guilty, and who is not guilty, of the dreadful crime of 9/11 truth. The good news is that he has found Abby Martin “not guilty.” The bad news is that he seems to be taking the position that 9/11 truth is indeed pernicious, but that Abby Martin only sought the truth about 9/11 when she was young and foolish. Older and wiser now, Abby is no longer interested in such things, Max assures us.

Today’s guest, Greg McCarron, is not impressed by Blumenthal’s attempts at gatekeeping. Read his analysis at:

MAX BLUMENTHAL FINDS ABBY MARTIN NOT GUILTY OF 9/11 TRUTH

…and listen to our exasperated attempts to figure out where Max Blumenthal (and Abby Martin for that matter) are coming from.

On IDF Brutality and the Meaning of the Holocaust

May 09, 2016  /  Gilad Atzmon

By Gilad Atzmon

In a speech last week, Major General Yair Golan, the Israeli military’s deputy chief of staff, said the Holocaust should prompt Israelis to reflect”deeply” about their own society.

“If there is anything that frightens me in the remembrance of the Holocaust, it is discerning nauseating processes that took place in Europe in general, and in Germany specifically back then, 70, 80 and 90 years ago, and seeing evidence of them here among us in the year 2016,” said the Israeli military leader.

Some Israeli right wing politicians didn’t like Major General Golan’s statement. PM Benjamin Netanyahu denounced him yesterday. Education Minister Naftali Bennett, called on Golan to correct his comments or be seen as “comparing Israeli soldiers to Nazis.” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, said Golan was “a little confused” and that his statement reflected “a lack of understanding, if not a disrespect of the Holocaust.”

However, other Israelis such as Isaac Herzog, leader of the Labour party, praised Golan. “This is what ethics and responsibility sound like,” he said. Apparently some Israelis can cope with the obvious comparison between Israeli brutality and some Jew haters in history.

This not so surprising speech illustrates that a top Israeli general is more genuine and ethically oriented than Jewish Leftist Max Blumenthal who was filmed abusing history revisionist David Irving for doing his job, i.e., narrating the past.

General Golan articulates a more coherent and universal moral from the holocaust than Jewish anti war activist Justin Raimondo and Anti Zionist Zionist Philip Weiss who have been united in their efforts to sustain the Holocaust religion rather than let it become, as it should, an historical chapter.

It seems that racist and genocidal Israel is more liberal, genuine and open than the entire Diaspora Jewish so called ‘dissent.’ This is hardly a surprise.  In fact, the very few dissident Jews who have something meaningful, deep and uncompromisingto say about the Jewish State,  Jewishness and Judaismhave been Israelis such as Israel Shahak, Israel Shamir, Sholomo Sand, Gideon Levy, Shulamit Aloni, Uri Avnery and a few others.  The Diaspora Jewish dissent has behaved quite differently, they lie for the tribe, they silence true dissenters and thoughtful critiques. They sustain the notion of the primacy of Jewish suffering through a controlled opposition apparatus.

Israel is also more open than Corbyn’s Labour party. Corbyn’s Labour suspended the legendary Ken Livingstone for telling the truth about Hitler’s collaboration with Zionism in 1933. The leader of Israel’s Labour party praised Major General Golan for his attempt to push for ethical thinking and historical context.

The recent developments in Israel and the British Labour party suggest that truth cannot be totally suppressed. Truth is a boomerang. It flies back. Truth has within it the inherent inclination to appear and resurface despite the odds. If you want to understand Jewish history and culture, all you have to do is try to gauge what the so-called ‘good Jews’ are trying to conceal.

Good luck

Free Palestine Movement Resigned from the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

July 21, 2015  /  Gilad Atzmon

GA: Congratulation to  the Free Palestine Movement for making the right step.   We are moving rapidly towards a partitioned solidarity movement. The separation wall between the Anti Zionist Zionists  AKA AZZ  and the rest of us is impossible to deny.

To:            The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

From:            The Free Palestine Movement

Date:            July 21, 2015

Subj:            Free Palestine Movement Resignation from the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

Please be advised that the Free Palestine Movement resigns from the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, effective immediately.

We resign because of the disgraceful, disrespectful and unjust treatment of Alison Weir and her organization, If Americans Knew, in the procedures to expel her from the Campaign on the spurious grounds of insufficient avoidance of anti-Semitic persons and institutions.

We resign because it is clear that the decision had been made to expel IAK before the proceedings to do so had ever begun.

We resign because, in defiance of the most basic principles of justice, Ms. Weir was not given the opportunity to confront her accuser.

We resign because no evidence was presented that she herself is anti-Semitic.

We resign because the USCEIO policy on racism is so broad that someone who is not racist can be found in violation for being insufficiently vigilant about confronting and challenging anti-Semitism whenever it is encountered.  This is so vague that the rule can be applied arbitrarily, as has been the case with IAK and Alison Weir.

We resign because the language of the policy on racism was formed through procedures and meetings that allowed persons selected arbitrarily by the staff and leadership of the USCEIO to control the wording, consultation and approval process of the policy and to disregard, disrespect and manipulate attempts by member organizations to participate in the process.

We resign because the policy implicitly gives priority to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia as forms of racism and does not even mention Zionism in the policy statement.

We resign because the cause of Palestinian suffering and ethnic cleansing is not anti-Semitism, but rather Zionism.

We resign because the USCEIO is in violation of its own policy on racism because it tolerates Zionism in its midst and neither confronts nor challenges it.

We resign because the mission of the USCEIO is hypocrisy: to apply double standards to racism and to tolerate Zionism while using anti-Semitism as a tool to determine who may be permitted to participate in the Palestine Rights Movement.

We resign because we prefer to take the courageous Palestinian resistance as our standard, and not anti-Semitism.

We resign because, unlike the USCEIO, we recognize that Zionism is the main problem and almost the only problem for Palestinians, and not anti-Semitism, and that the eradication of a state founded on Zionism must be our primary goal and almost our only goal.

We resign because we believe that a manipulative USCEIO gatekeeper entity does not serve the interests of justice for Palestine and Palestinians, nor for Americans, nor for Jews.  We will seek the future of justice in more likely places, which is to say almost anywhere.

We do not give our consent to be considered one of the many cameo organizations, used to inflate the apparent size and importance of the USCEIO even though they have long stopped participating.  We believe that the USCEIO is a much smaller organization than it pretends, and should be treated as such.  Please remove us from all mailing lists and from the regional list serve, with its threats to remove anyone who steps out of line.

Finally, we join others in thanking the USCEIO for revealing its true face of arrogance, repression and hypocrisy to all who care to see.   In this respect you have rendered a great service.

This Is The Woman The Blumenthals Are Dying To Expel

In the last two months, the entire AZZ (Anti Zionist Zionists) league (JVPThe US End Of Israeli OccupationMax Blumenthal, Sabos Goy supreme Ali Abunimah ) has been going out of its way to expel this great woman from the solidarity shtetl.

Watch Alison Weir in action:

Hot Off The Press: How The Israeli Government Subverted The Solidarity Movement

July 04, 2015  /  Gilad Atzmon

 By Gilad Atzmon

Two days ago, some invaluable information surfaced relating to the treacherous role of Jewish liberals in derailing the BDS campaign. A Ynet article disclosing the Israeli strategy relating to the pro Palestinian campaign disclosed the close links between the Israeli Government and the Jewish ‘pro’ Palestinian organizations. It revealed the manner in which both have been acting in concert to subvert this humanitarian discourse.

According to the Ynet article, Eran Shayshon, Director of Policy and Strategy at the Reut Institute*, had a clear message to his Israeli Government – we need to recruit left-wing groups associated with BDS to control our opposition. The mission set by Shayshon and the Reut Institute was: 

“to divide and drive a wedge between the leaders of the BDS campaign.”

“For Israel, the key is to actually making a clear distinction between the extremists and the rest. The goal is to divide them,” Shayshon says.

“That means to be open to listen to criticism from moderate voices against the government, in order to return the extremists back to their natural size. To achieve this goal, we explained to the government representatives that we have to operate with as large a base as possible; meaning, recruit not only right-wing agencies and groups to the fight, but also left-wing groups who criticize the government.”

This clarifies the role of JVP within the movement and explains the rationale behind the BDS campaign against some of our most profound pro-Palestinians voices (Norman Finkelstein, Alison Weir, Daniel Barenboim, Jacob Cohen and many others).

And here is Max Blumenthal/JVP/ Mondoweiss’ thought policing agenda as articulated in clear by Hasbara merchant Shayshon in Jerusalem: “The message for left-wing organizations is that criticism is legitimate, but there are red lines of terminology and entities with whom we cooperate.” When you read this you may ask yourself, who was it who changed Mondoweiss comment policy, banning any criticism of the Jewish State that analyses Jewish perspectives. Was it Philip Weiss in NYC or Eran Shayshon in Jerusalem?

In case you still find this hard to accept, I’ll be as clear as I can. Shayshon instructed his government that liberal Jews, the Blumenthals, JVPs and Mondoweisses are good for the Jews. Now, we may understand how Max Blumenthal and Philip Weiss make it in and out of Ben Gurion airport. Shayshon has provided us with a possible answer. I guess that the same applies to Omar Barghouti, as long as he keeps close ties with Judith Butler and the Jewish crowd.

Shayshon admits that his strategy wasn’t as successful as he wished.  “We initiated meetings between government representatives and several Jewish left-wing organizations in Israel and abroad, but it did not bear any fruits. So we lost effective and good soldiers for the fight.” We now know that our so-called Jewish ‘allies’ have been negotiating with the Israeli Government behind our backs while claiming to care for Palestinians and their plight. This is a textbook case of a controlled opposition operation. We are inundated with Immanuel Goldsteins. I am not shocked by this–my book The Wandering Who exposes the ideological, political, spiritual and cultural continuum between Zionism and its imaginary Jewish dissent—but I am surprised Shayshon exposed his Sayanim network in our midst. I trust he knows what he is doing.

But the betrayal doesn’t end there.  Even B’Tselem, an organization many of us cherish, is also primarily committed to the Jews and their interests. Uri Zaki, B’Tselem’s former US Director told Ynet,

“I went to universities in the United States, specifically on Apartheid Week, in order to explain that I was an Israeli patriot, and to oppose the boycotts. Like the Jewish left-wing groups in America who joined the fight against the boycott, our position has great influence. It is true that we will not fight a boycott of settlement products, but our efficacy in the fight over sovereign Israel’s good name is very obvious, much more than that of right-wing groups.”

Interesting isn’t it? Zaki, an Israeli patriot, was welcome to speak at Israeli Apartheid Week in opposition to BDS, Anna Baltzer, another Jew ‘anti’ Zionist was desperate to stop me from talking at the same Israeli Apartheid Week because I advocate the Palestinian Right of Return. She failed by the way.

According to Ynet,

“B’Tselem has already proven its contribution when it strongly criticized the Goldstone Report, which greatly embarrassed South African jurist Richard Goldstone.”

The message is unmistakable. Jewish progressives are dedicated primarily to Jewish interests and the Jewish state is such an interest. There is no way to hide it anymore. This explains why the Palestinian solidarity movement has never achieved anything for the Palestinians. It is now becoming clear that the BDS is the front that Israel prefers to fight. Instead of confronting authentic Palestinians over their Right of Return, Israelis are engaged in an internal Jewish battle over ‘the right to BDS.’ It might be hilarious except that the lives and the prospects of millions of deprived refugees are at stake.
