The War Among the Jews

December 18th, 2013 - 5:43 pm

In the Spring of 2000, I was friendly with a nice man, the father of my son’s friend. He was generally apolitical, but his father had been a very high official in the Zionist-Marxist party (MAPAM), and he had regularly voted for MAPAM or the Communist Party. By coincidence, we once ended up sitting next to each other on a flight.

I thought it would be interesting to discuss politics, which I had never done with him. After all, the Camp David meeting had failed (Yasir Arafat had refused the two-state solution, and Israeli intelligence had recordings of Arafat saying he would never accept it), and the violent second intifada was launched by Arafat with a Fatah-Hamas alliance of terrorism.

Anyway, to my surprise this soft-spoken real estate agent started screaming: Only [Ariel] Sharon! Only Sharon can save the country!”

That year, I heard that a lot. As British philosopher Samuel Johnson said: “When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” That’s the difference with direct engagement with an issue.

A great number of Middle Eastern Arabs and Muslims — perhaps 85% — who think about this issue at all want to destroy Israel. This is far more than even the percentage of Germans who wanted to kill the Jews in 1932.

American public opinion, Christians, and absolutely shocked congressional Democrats (and Republicans) who don’t feel comfortable with Obama and Kerry’s policies are the main supporters of Israel. It will be interesting to see if and when the Democrats have to choose between Israel and real dangers to Israel. However, a large number of the pro-Obama and radical or even anti-Israel cadre are Jews themselves — an incredible proportion. It is surprising, but also not so surprising. Yet it must be confronted; and it must not be answered by more words but by political movements and pressure.

Why are Jews so far to the left in general? Historically, it is no mystery. The Jews in the nineteenth century were modernists, supporters of change and development, because traditional society did not have a place for them. Then, the Democratic Party made a serious effort to get the immigrant and other urban ethnic votes.

The New Deal was very good for Jews and was strongly supported by them; many government agencies were first staffed by Jews at that time. Also many academics, journalists, and other service professions and trade unions were working government-created jobs. And the fight against fascism was led by the Democratic Party in that era.

You would think that the Democratic view is out of date, but of course it is not. It is just unfashionable to be Republican, whereas liberal Democratic politics are associated with all that is smart, good, and stylish.

It is important to keep in mind that Jews are very sensitive to racial and religious discrimination. So why is the anti-Semitism connected to popular liberal politics so easily overlooked, and even exploited by the modern left?

Let’s look at Reverend Wright, who was obviously involved in potent anti-Semitism. He said in a 2011 speech in Baltimore: “The state of Israel is an illegal, genocidal … place.” Also: “To equate Judaism with the state of Israel is to equate Christianity with [rapper] Flavor Flav.” These comments were forgiven because of his connection to Obama’s campaign: crime, never punishment.

Today, there is a very bizarre division among Jews in the United States. There is a serious lack of Jewish causes among leftist Zionists. Activists are either pro-Israel and traditional liberals or moderates, or they belong more to the extreme left wing — which is, unfortunately, disproportionately common. I should think the historical far-left communist experience should be sufficient to scare Jews (remember the oppression of Soviet Jewry).

Amen brother. And they are fully supportive of Open Borders and the further balkanization if this country through mass 3d world immigration.

And they dont deny it, quotes are everywhere. Doing the same thing in europe. Speak one word of nationalism or white self interest, and you are on the s#it list.

You forgot to mention the SPLC and ADL.

well, I've got news for them. There is a big awakening underway, especially in europe. people are sick of the multi-culti experiment, and a backlash is a comin. I can hear the ass#oles puckering in Brussells from here.

Well. What a timely column. In a personal way. The other day I was having a conversation with one of my oldest and dearest friends who is also Jewish. I asked her if she noticed that those with the most hatred and venom directed at Israel were themselves Jews and that if Israel is to be torn apart, she will be undone by her own. As a non Jew, a Catholic, I learned about the Old Testament, read the Bible from cover to cover and have always had a deep respect for the Jewish culture and how Christianity's roots grew in Jewish soil. But something is beginning to turn in my soul. And I am trying to fight it but I think it will win. It is this: in America there seems to be, at least lately, so many Jewish voices hell bent on tearing this culture, its Christianity, it's religious beliefs, its spiritual leanings, anything to do with anything other than the secular world into shreds. Except if you are Muslim. Might that be because they want the Muslims to do some of their dirty work? The nastiest voices, the biggest mouths, the most well funded, the most vitriol spewing are Jews. Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, George Soros, Diane Feinstein, Alan Grayson, Chuck Schumer, Ron Emmanuel, his brother the henchman Zeke, Barbara Boxer, Bernie Sanders, and on and on. Take a look at the loudest voices in the homosexual rights movement, the women's movement, the continuing agitation of the races and you will find them. And there are others. No doubt about it. But DISPROPORTIONATELY the leaders, the movers, the shakers, are Jewish. Hollywood and the filth that pours forth. The media's biggest left wing partisan hacks. People I know are staring to question why. And if you read the comments sections following many articles, people are beginning to comment on it. So it isn't something that is particular to myself. And the smear anti Semite is about as genuine as the overworked accusation of racism. Because the people I have named are not SEMITE ENOUGH. They are JINOS - Jews in name only. Their true religion is Marxism/Socialism/fascism. The religious Jews I know and respect DESPISE the left wing Jews. Much the same as I do. Dennis Prager once wrote a column several years ago wherein he praised Christian America. For seemingly not to notice that their religion was being systematically attacked by..left wing Jews. People ARE starting to notice. And the puzzlement will grow into hatred. I despise them for it. And I have tried not to. So there it is.

Unfortunately there's always been a 'war among the Jews that goes back to Biblical times. Jews like max Blumenthal, Noam Chomsky, Norman Finklestein, and other athiestic, secular-liberal leftists before him continue the long and hateful tradition that began with the two sons of Isaac. To wit, when Esau sought to kill his brother Jacob.
There is no way to justify and condone the words and actions of these Fratricidal Jews. Either they are confused and misguided in their understanding of the situation the Jewish Nation finds itself in today or worse, that they are pathologically self-loathing anti-Semitic Jews. Either way, the result is the same; they have chosen to hasten the destruction of their Brothers and Sisters. In that respect they are a far greater danger to the Jewish People than Iranian nuclear weapons or United Nations resolutions. These Fratricidal Bnei Esau must be confronted and condemned in no uncertain terms by any and every Jew who has an ounce of Love for their People. They are Esau, the killers among us.

I call them all Communosocialists cos that's what they are! He is talking about the 75% JAP/P's out to butcher/slaughter us all once again! Read the book The Liberal Mind by Dr. Rossitor in 2006 to see their Transference Psychopathology and extreme Psychological Projection that makes them hopeless losers out to kill even us Drop of Blood Jews once again. Yes they came mostly from the uber corrupted Europe and should be Alyiahad back to N/S Is real to fight their wars of appeasement. Antisemitism is the origin of hate started by the uber corrupt Church that continues today. Boycott all democrat/Commie Jews and picket their Synagogues I dropped out of. See 7-9% Commie Israeli Jews especially after Clinton brought them Occupy scum. It always starts with females leading the Sharia charge. The Israelites always shoot female terrorists first cos they know. They always support and celebrate the very worst of the worst every time. Makes me want to go punch these Commie Flag's JAP's in their face cos they are all just cowards and proving that " All Jews aren't smart"! They maybe formally educated but that doesn't make them " Smart". Democrats meet the criteria of Terrorists committing Treason just by our Constitution/Bill of Rights alone. Under the NDAA they are all guilty as charged. It's why they are trying to outlaw the death penalty for Treason and any/all crimes committed by Federal employees! What's old is new to many young punks and immigrants. The only thing truly knew in the world is the true history we don't know....

Here in France 70% of jews are staunchly pro-Israel, and do vote for the conservative party ( neo-gaullist or post gaullist ) . We have no leftist-syndrome left ( except a few academics ) our jewish public figures ( artists-businessmen-scientists) are quite openly pro-israel .The left is openly anti-israel and pro arab.We are facing the arab confrontation both inside France ( where 9 millions french citizens are of arab north african origin ) where the arab vote is totally with the left and in the mideast .We know from close history that the arabs are anti-western , anti-freedom, anti-Israel and we have no qualms about who is a friend or a foe.We have no regrets for the defunct jews and communist russia alliance.France was liberated from the nazis by the western powers, not by the communist russia.So we look at the jewish american naivity as something very childish.Will american remain always so ignorant of the ever going resentment of the muslim world no matter how low america and Obama bow their heads down ? It seems to me the american public is mislead and not very curious to search for the reality.

Good for the jewish people in your country for calling a spade a spade and actually recognizing that the Communists are not friends of them. Do the French Jews support Rousseau (who was basically the grandfather of Communism/Socialism if Karl Marx was the father of Communism/Socialism), though? I'm only asking because Gurfinkel, who is supposed to be conservative, founded the Jean Jacques Rousseau Institute, which is supposed to be conservative, yet the namesake is the guy who, as noted above, predated even Marx in establishing the grounds for Communism in the first place, even having its unofficial first Communist revolution in 1789. I also hope that France throws off Rousseau and the Encyclopedists influence and fully returns to Catholicism and being Rome's Sister. Many of us Catholics/Christians who had died as a result of that revolution deserve it. Also, how many people in France support the likes of Sartre and the like as well as were influenced by May 1968 (several sources implied that it greatly influenced the event, with Peace Walker, one of the sources, even implying from one of its characters, a Frenchwoman who behaved in a sultry, almost harlot-like manner, that literally all Frenchwomen behaved in that manner since that event (she basically said "I am no different than any other Parisian women. Not since May 1968" in reply to the main character's comment that she was "uninhibited"), and I need verification, as I'm not French at all and you clearly are). Oh, and what is France's overall view of Rousseau and the encyclopedists, if I may ask (since, you know, they were responsible for the massacres against many of us during the revolution.).

"Jewishness" is a complicated phenomenon. It is both a self-identification and an identification haphazardly ascribed by the broader society. It can be viewed as a religious belief, a "peoplehood" ( an ambiguous concept with which various Jewish groups wrestle), a historical immigrant connection to a culture or an ethnic self-identification.

There is a continuum of "progressive" Jews from some who wrestle with deep religious beliefs while identifying with "prophetic" aspects of Judaism they believe inclines towards pacifism and socialist ideas , to a very large number for whom Judaism is meaningless and their Jewishness only serves them as a way to think of themselves as part of a persecuted minority, as opposed to successful members of America's dominant generic "white" oppressors. In practice the latter group of progressive Jews wants to deny any Jewish particularity , religious or otherwise, and glories in becoming part of some undefined diverse secular universalism. This is reminiscent of strong currents of assimilation for assimilation's sake in the period between the Napoleonic emancipation of the Jews until Hitler's ascension to power. It often doesn't work well for those who try to assimilate , especially in the first generation or two ( after that no one remembers or cares). It is very bad for those who continue to practice Judaism because those assimilating are at particular pains to distance themselves from their supposedly unenlightened co-religionists. What is dangerous now , and potentially tragic , is that we aren't talking about unpleasant and disagreeable social consequences for those still identified as Jews. We are talking about moral support for a country which potentially would like to kill half the Jews in the world immediately , and sees itself in divinely mandated war with the remainder. Progressive Jews , however, are no more self-deluding as to the ideology and determination of the Iranian clerical regime and Islamist elements than other Western progressive opinion.

Ah, duh! The Bolshevik revolution was led by Jews. All the top gestapo types in the kremlin were jews. all of the leaders of communist revolutions everywhere were jews (ie germany). nelson mandela was mentored by jews.

I am glad that someone has pointed out that protestants in the US are the key Israeli support. In my travels I have noted that Jews a visceral disdain for them.

As to Jews, well Marxism is Jewish Millennialism per Ferguson so it is not hard to see why any sort of nationalism would be odious to them. In that thinking the world is a big happen family, all conflicts being contrived illusions.

There's an assumption here that the Jews being discussed are trying to balance their religious affiliation against their political affiliation to arrive at some sort of decision. Unfortunately, many modern Jews long ago adopted liberalism or socialism as their actual religion, and whatever is left of their Judaism is largely free of traditional Jewish thought and practice. Now that the leftist trend is decidedly anti-Israel, leftist Jews follow. Among the Orthodox Jews, who are most in tune with Jewish tradition, are today's strongest supporters of the Jewish presence in the land of Israel and traditional Jewish values.

American Christians stand up and support Israel more than the majority of Jews do that I have met here in southern Florida.

So many Jewish people here are extremely far left liberals. I just don't understand.

Yes, and to elaborate, they are Jewish, aside from name, only in terms of ethnicity, not in terms of religion. I once watched a video (partially, it froze up in the middle) talking about the black genocide by abortion and Planned Parenthood, and it mentioned Jewish people running Planned Parenthood. The ones who made the video are most likely conservative, as they called Jesse Jackson for selling them out just to get an election won.

BTW, just a bit of a question, is the woman who played Amy in The Big Bang Theory among the JINOs? She holds to the orthodox wing of Judaism (which is supposed to be as far removed from JINOs as one can get), but I've also heard a lot of complaints on the internet about how she's trying to destroy Christianity.

Yes. An age is ending, though there will probably have to be at least one more big war before this insane age of (Jewish-dominated) liberalism, global capitalism and cultural genocide is finally over. Thanks primarily to the internet, the Masters of Discourse have been unmasked, the world is spinning out of their control, and new orders of magicians are taking the stage. Interesting times...

I appeal to all Christians, like Betina, who are
So upset ( as I am) by the phenomenon of
The large numbers of leftist jews ( small 'J')
That they flirt with the possibility that there may
Be 'legitimate' grounds for AntiSemitism.
As a Jew of Faith I would caution you; those with
Jewish sounding names whom
You and I oppose are not truly Jewish. They
Are 'Leftish'. They are Jewish only by accident
Of birth but leftist by choice. They don't
Speak for the Jewish People.
Please do not
Hold the silent majority of Believers responsible
For the unholy words and deeds of those on the left.

Check out Harvey Klehr's speech on Jews and the American Communist Party

http://www.yivo.org/video/index.php?tid=198&aid=1116

Monday May 7 2012 (Day 2)

And people wonder why it was policy to deny Jews immigration entry to their countries. Must have been because they were Anti-Semitic haters, instead of rational human beings looking out for the well being of their tribes and nations.

Betina...you are correct. The Truth, however,
Is that the Jewish People are not yet returned from
Galut, the 2000 year exile. The secular leftist
Jews you rightly disdain are the very same Erev
Rav, 'mixed multitudes', who followed the Jewish
People out of Egypt and instigated
Building the Golden Calf in the desert. They have
Been a thorn in our Jewish Soul ever since.
These same are today's leftists, secular humanist
Atheists, and Fratricidal Dybbuks. As a Jew
Of Faith I, like yourself, reject these 'children
Of Esau'. They are still trying to kill Jacob.

Put it this way. 9 out of 10 American Jews that are not dressed in conservative traditional garb, that you meet, do not have the best interests of European Christendom at heart. They support it's delegitimization and deconstruction of that order as a supremacist, privileged, discriminatory, bigoted and evil.

Those Jews arent your friends.

Bravo!

Most American Jews are the enemy of European Christendom. And the sooner that European wakes up to that reality, the better. You first have to identify an enemy before you can counter them.

Most American Jews are Anti-EuropeanChristian in the same mold as Anti-Semitism. That is what needs to be recognized.

I suggest we take a page from their book, and create a word with magical power like "anti-semitism" and "racism". "Anti-aryanism"? "Anti-European"? The Right must learn to use the black magical power of words to their advantage, just like the (jew-dominated) Masters of Discourse!
