Postcard from the End of America: Ann Arbor
A Sign by Henry Herskovitz
A Sign by Henry Herskovitz

Say Ann Arbor and people will think of Michigan football, with the second biggest stadium in the entire world, behind only North Korea’s Rungrado May Day Stadium. The annual marijuana rally, Hash Bash, may also come to mind.

Downtown is filled with hip cafés, trendy shops, comfy brewpubs and sophisticated restaurants. These kids have money, I thought as I roamed around, searching for cheap beer. In-state tuition, in turns out, is $28,776, and out of state is $59,784. Michigan has plenty of international students, most notably Chinese.

At Curtain Call, the 30-something bartender, Chris, was from Hawaii. Her dad owned a Maui bar close enough to the beach for surfers to down a few at dawn before hitting the waves. Sounded like paradise. Chris couldn’t work for her old man, however, because he was so cheap, so she ended slinging beer in Ann Arbor. Chris had originally gone there to study biochemistry at the university.

This was her first Friday night off in eleven years, Chris confessed, “I don’t know what to do with myself.”

“You should go somewhere and drink.”

“It’s been eleven years since I can do that!”

“That’s interesting.”

“For me, it doesn’t matter if it’s one drink or ten drink, I’ll still get a headache in the morning.”

“You should drink ten then!”

We laughed.

Jewish, Chris told me Ann Arbor’s best deli was Zingerman’s.

In my late 20’s, I took a girl to a Philly diner. I ordered chicken liver, a favorite to this day. Maria looked at me in horror, “What the fuck are you eating?! Chicken shit?!”

Did I tell you that Jews have been most instrumental in my life? In college, my three most supportive professors, Boris Putterman, Stephen Berg and Eileen Neff, were Jews, with Berg and Neff practically my surrogate parents, they nurtured me so much. Berg bought a painting of mine to put over his fireplace, and lent me money several times. My fiction publisher, Dan Simon, is Jewish, and Jewish Ron Unz has treated me better than any other webzine editor. Novelist Matthew Sharpe has talked me up in the fiction world. I can go on and on. Hell, my first date was with a Jewish girl, and I even lost my virginity to a Jew! I traveled through remote northwest Vietnam with photographer Mitch Epstein, and with 6-9 Lloyd Luntz, explored the Mekong Delta. Jews swarm me, fill my head, course through my veins. I can go on and on.

My next time at Curtain Call, I chatted with a 28-year-old who wished he was 25. “My last birthday, I said it was the 3rd anniversary of my 25th.”

Overhearing this, a guy down the bar shouted, “I wish I was 50!”

Another old head jumped in, “I wish I was 60!”

With two friends threatening suicide, I brought up the topic to this just-arrived, incipient man who’s already mourning his lost youth. “Don’t do it before you’re 50!” I joked.

Outside the FederalBuilding on Liberty Street, I ran into two people protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. Their signs, “I STAND WITH STANDING ROCK,” “CAN’T DRINK OIL / WATER IS LIFE / #NODAPL” and “BE A TSUNAMI,” among others.

Jeff’s a retired lawyer, and Mary’s a former elementary school teacher who worked at Crazy Wisdom, a tea room and bookstore. This month’s book picks include Mediumship: An Introductory Guide to Developing Spiritual Awareness and Intuition, Magicians of the Gods: Fingerprints of the Gods, Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin and The Education of Will: a Mutual Memoir of a Woman and her Dog.

I asked what they were about. Jeff, “If you feel connected to Mother Earth, then you’re going to protect Mother Earth, and you’re going to relate to the Native Americans, and what they stand for. We don’t own any of this. We think we own it, but that’s an illusion.”

Ellen, “People will say I’m not doing it, but we’re all one, so we are all doing it. We live in homes that use electricity and gas. The America first mindset has been going on for a while. Not enough of us realize that we are one with the rest of the world. If they starve, so do we. Our hearts do, even if our bodies are not. I feel responsible for the world.”

“So what are you doing personally to help?” I asked.

“Personally, I am keeping my temperature lower. I’m using less water. I am signing every petition that comes my way that I believe in. I’m contributing money to the bigger organizations that I feel can, perhaps, get their voice heard more than I can.

“So many people don’t know any different, and so they assume that everything they’re doing is fine. Many people don’t know that a lot of people in the world are suffering. They just don’t understand, and if they do know, they don’t care. It’s not their own family.

“My own stepson and his family, they work at home, they love their children, they’re good people, but he says, ‘This is my world.’ It’s his home and his family.”

Jeff, “I think the culture is so isolating. You get in your car and you drive around. You look at your phone all day. We do things that separate us, you know.

“Look where we are, close to Detroit, where they make automobiles. For me, I don’t particularly enjoy driving around in a car all day.”

I brought up the election. Ellen, “What happened is a huge amount of people who felt like they didn’t have a voice, and it was a contemptuous voice, were given it by he who should not be president. And, they feel really good now, but nothing is really going to happen for them, but they were heard. To be heard is going to be enough for them for a while.

“I do yoga with a quite introspective man, and he thinks something went wrong with America this time. It’s been building up, and I’ll admit that Hillary was a part of it too, but this election is proof positive that we are fucked!”

ORDER IT NOW

Jeff, “People need to speak up, and not be afraid to speak up, you know, whatever their conscience is. I’m not a fan of the media at all. People will try to steer you in their direction. You need the courage to stand alone and be a voice, a different voice. It takes courage to do it.”

Ellen, “It does, it does, and courage isn’t something Americans have in huge, ah, commodity.”

College towns proliferate in approved political statements, so in Ann Arbor, I saw a “Black Lives Matter” banner at a church, “Black Lives Matter” signs outside homes, a rainbow flag in front of a church with “God is still speaking” and a “WITH ISRAEL WE STAND” sign at a liquor store, etc. A house displayed a “PEACE” rainbow flag and a bed sheet painted with “WE SUPPORT OUR MUSLIM NEIGHBORS.”

Nowhere did I see “STOP BOMBING MUSLIMS,” “STOP SUPPORTING THE TERROR STATE OF ISRAEL” or “STOP SLANDERING AND PROVOKING RUSSIA.”

A progressive American is mostly a jerked puppet who’s outraged solely at preselected triggers. At his Deir Yassin Remembered website, lifelong Ann Arbor resident Henry Herskovitz explains:

Jackie Robinson and Jewish Power

Emotions naturally flare at watching the PBS special shown on MLK day of the career of baseball icon Jackie Robinson. Who could not grow emotional when reminded that Jackie and wife Rachel were bumped twice from the planes carrying them to a spring training camp in Florida? What outrage is felt by viewers recognizing that this discrimination they experienced came merely because of the color of their skin and nothing else!

Yes, we get it. And we feel for the Robinsons; their plight was genuine. Racial discrimination still exists in America.

But what about Muhammed Ali, my friend and sandwich shop operator in the Balata refugee camp near Nablus, Palestine? Muhammed grew up in Haifa, graduated high school there and earned a technical degree before being bumped, not just from an airplane, but from his home town. Yes, he cannot return to Haifa and swim in the Mediterranean the way his family did before him. He cannot even travel to the Haram esh-Sharif/Noble Sanctuary to practice his religion. Like Jackie Robinson, Muhammed is the wrong “color”: neither ethnic Jew, secular Jew, nor religious Jew.

Isn’t there a story here as well, PBS? Perhaps even more compelling than Robinson’s, because Muhammed has yet to break his “color” barrier. Hello, Hollywood, isn’t his story worthy—at least—of a two-hour documentary?

Born Jewish, Herskovitz soured on his tribe after a trip to Israel. He saw firsthand the gross brutality of the illegally founded terror state. Back in Ann Arbor, Herskovitz wanted to give a presentation to his synagogue, Beth Israel, but the rabbi nixed the idea. Outraged, Herskovitz has staged an anti-Israel protest outside Beth Israel each Saturday for 13+ years. Though Herskovitz loves to ride his motorcycle long distance, he always come back in time to stand with his signs. A small band join him.

Last year, I visited Herskovitz at home and saw anti-Israel messages everywhere, including on the salt shaker, the fridge, the car, the garage and even the fireplace’s ember screen. To some neighbors’ dismay, Herskovitz paid to have “STOP US AID TO ISRAEL” and “LIBERATE PALESTINE / END ISRAEL” incised into the sidewalk outside his house.

Herskovitz routinely wears an anti-Israel T-shirt and baseball cap, and on his car are several anti-Israel stickers.

In 2015, Herskovitz and his allies paid for a billboard in Detroit, “AMERICA FIRST NOT ISRAEL.” Herskovitz:

The strategy behind this billboard’s statement, ‘America First, Not Israel’, is to drive a wedge between those who feel American interests are not served by fighting wars for Israel, and the Israel-firsters in this country who manipulate our leaders into the false premise that Israel is the ally of the United States.

Charges of anti-semitism quickly flooded in, and the message was taken down, so it was put up at another, more out of the way spot, until this second billboard company was also pressured to remove it. Henry:

Jewish Power Never Sleeps

Like Michigan rust on vehicles, Jewish Power remains relentless at getting its way. Just when Witness for Peace was to announce the installation of a local billboard—sponsored by sister organization Deir Yassin Remembered and carrying our message “America First, Not Israel”—we get “the call”. The billboard […] was taken down by Adams Outdoor Advertising one week after installation, effectively terminating a three-month contract.

That’s how long it took for Jewish Power to pressure Adams’ executives into seeing things their way. The call came from General Manager Mike Cannon, who admitted to receiving phone calls asking that the billboard be taken down. Mike claimed he was not the one who made the decision, and provided the phone number of Vice President of Human Resources Brian Grant to field my questions.

Brian developed a mantra for the conversation we shared: “the decision to remove the billboard was a collective decision and was made because the message did not meet Adams’ company standards. We removed the billboard and refunded your money. And that’s all I can say.” Brian fell back on this mantra at least a half dozen times during our 20-minute discussion. And reminded me that, since a clause in the contract allowed Adams to terminate at any time, there was no “breach of contract”.

Q: What were the company standards?
A: [Brian was not going to go into that.]
Q: How do you square the fact that the message was initially approved by Adams?
A: It should not have been approved; due diligence was not applied.
Q: Who were the people complaining about the billboard?
A: [Would not answer that.]
Q: What were the organizations calling for the billboard to be taken down?
A: [See above.]
Q: Would the decision to pull the billboard have been the same had the message been simply America First?
A: Well, you’re asking a hypothetical.
Q: You mean Adams would NOT run a billboard saying America First?
A: [No answer.]

And so it goes. By deception shall you make war. DYR and WfP lose the round; Jewish Power wins. We move on.

When Russia Today reported on this billboard controversy, the first commenter said, “Calling Americans to put interest of America ahead of Isreal is branded as anti semitic ? That goes to prove how much the zionist wants the americans to be brain dead!”

ORDER IT NOW

Brainwashed, Americans also cringe at “Jewish power,” but it’s OK so declare and celebrate “black power,” “Latino power,” “gay power” or “women’s power,” etc. Aren’t AIPAC, the flushing of the U.S.S. Liberty down the memory hole, the abject kowtowing of DC politicians to Tel Aviv and our endless war against Israel’s enemy all examples of Jewish power?

But you’re dead wrong, anti-semite! As eternal victims everywhere, Jews are always powerless, so only Jew haters would dare to suggest otherwise.

“Are you a Jew hater?” I asked Herskovitz. His answer:

“Hate” is a term used by my opponents, not by me. “Hate speech” is used by the Hasbara folks as an epithet thrown at their perceived enemies. Like “Holocaust Denier,” the users of these terms do not define them, but merely slime those whose voices they want to silence. I’m a “hater” because Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center says I am. Could Mr. Potok be a child molester because I make the claim?

I try not to play defense. My experience in these matters tells me that once I start down the slippery slope of “denial,” or defending my position, this tactic merely fuels opponents’ appetite for further questions. It answers nothing. The best defense is a good offense.

Even if I were to admit a hatred of an ethnic/religious group, an interesting question arises. Assume this group was Irish Protestants, and I said I hated them. Who would care? But admitting to hating Jews is another story altogether. Perhaps the phrase “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize” makes sense when used in this context.

And the question becomes rather ludicrous when you consider that I love my sister, her children and grandchildren; ditto for my Virginia cousins, their children and grandchildren. I’m even scheduled to attend a Bat Mitzvah of one of these kids this summer. If you were to tell this group I’m a Jew hater, you would not be believed.

So no, Herskovitz has no beef with ordinary Jews, or he would have to disown his entire family, but haven’t Jewish policy makers, media masters, opinion shapers and bankers used their disproportionate sway over the makeup and direction of this country to harm not just their Muslim enemies, but ordinary Americans?

In putting up the billboard, “AMERICA FIRST / NOT ISRAEL,” Herskovitz merely wants our country to serve its own citizens, and not be distorted, corrupted, discredited and destroyed by a foreign agenda, and I, as an American, can’t help but concur.

    More than a few smart Jews know that the State of Israel is one of the worst offenders against Judaism.

    The State of Israel itself is a mockery of the religion and never ceases to distort, corrupt, discredit it and its leadership, as would be typical of rabid atheists, seems bent on destroying it.

    “ To [my grandfather] Zionism was counterfeit Judaism and the Zionists charlatans. His Orthodox belief held that the re-establishment of Israel was a matter of God in the messianic future. He would have agreed with Yehoshofat Harkabi, a former chief of Israeli military intelligence, who said “The Jews always considered that the land belonged to them, but in fact it belonged to the Arabs. I would go further: I would say the original source of this conflict lies with Israel.”

    http://mondoweiss.net/2012/08/my-grandfather-sparked-my-interest-in-debate-over-zionism.html

    “So I would say that the past century’s drive to urge all the world’s Jews to settle in the one small territory of Israel has not been particularly “Jewish,” as such attempts to realize the goal of Zionism have violated the very moral teachings of Judaism (and Christianity)…”

  6. Ellen, “It does, it does, and courage isn’t something Americans have in huge, ah, commodity.”

    Well Ellen, Sometimes in America it takes a great deal of courage just to get up everyday, face a relentless job, raise a family and simply try to make it back to the pillow with dignity and decency intact. Baby, some of us have to help make things and don’t get paid enough doing it. Cashiers and truck drivers have courage, Ellen. I think you’re projecting your cognitive dissonance in the wrong directions… You sound concerned, intelligent and caring. Just a difference of perspectives I suppose.

    All that aside, Thank you Linh. Unrelated, but the oft beloved/oft hated Psychedelic Stooges got their start in Anne Arbor in 1967. Jesus Loves the Stooges.

    ... and they were not so much psychedelic as messily noisy and experimental. As with my own early efforts (much later than the embryonic Stooges), it was before 'record everything' became the rule.

    My opinion is that, if you weren't there and didn't hear or see it, it doesn't matter, just that you weren't there to see and/or hear it.

    View/hear a replay, it is not the same thing.

    Ephemerality is an important principle.

    Documentation of performance art (which is how the pre-LP Stooges saw themselves) is, in a sense, a betrayal. That there is no documentation of them from that time (except a few still photos) is a great thing in itself.

    Sure, they likely made great noise at times, but it is all the better that we who were not there cannot hear it out of context now.

    The difference is that the Germans killed the wrong people. This is why we have a Holocaust museum in every state in the US.

    Americans killed how many American natives, black slaves, North Vietnamese, Afghans, Libyans, and Iraqs? The list goes on. Let's not discuss the tally of deaths by the U.K. and French empires.

    " want to know who rules you, know who you can't criticize".

    Nope.... " want to know who rules you, you better know who you can't kill and who's lives are more valuable".

    This Holocaust religion has made every other ethnicity lives valueless and deaths insignificant. Who cares about the deaths of people with no power?

    The short answer.. No one!

    I guess it’s a result of the Jewish desire for justice in the world that motivates him. The same desire for justice that on one hand is such a noble cause, but on the other is one of the things that makes everyone else hate Jews so much.

    A lot of pressure is being applied to bring change in Israel.first and foremost by the arab lobby.this is not about America first.or make America great again or america whatever.the sole aim is to put a wedge between American support for Israel in order to destroy Israel and expel Jews from the region.

    The Arab lobbyists were involved? Both of them!? Outrageous!

    My father always taught me two wrongs don't make it right.

    The entire Zio controlled world went to war to defend Poland's reluctance to give back the city of Danzig to Germany.

    Or was this conflict, between Poland and Germany, a pretext for war. A war to protect Jewish interests in Europe?

    The Jews claim they have a right to Palestine because they conquered and settled the land thousands of years ago.

    The world went to war against Germany because they wanted territory returned to them that was taken away from them in WW 1.

    Why is it justified for Jews from around the world to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians to make room for Jews from New Jersey?

    Please don't tell me God was in the real estate business.

They openly despise us, and generally support anything and everything that is viewed as harmful to traditional America. Jews are at the front of the line for just about every lousy social movement aimed at destroying America. What’s to like?

    Ellen, “It does, it does, and courage isn’t something Americans have in huge, ah, commodity.”

    Well Ellen, Sometimes in America it takes a great deal of courage just to get up everyday, face a relentless job, raise a family and simply try to make it back to the pillow with dignity and decency intact. Baby, some of us have to help make things and don't get paid enough doing it. Cashiers and truck drivers have courage, Ellen. I think you're projecting your cognitive dissonance in the wrong directions... You sound concerned, intelligent and caring. Just a difference of perspectives I suppose.

    All that aside, Thank you Linh. Unrelated, but the oft beloved/oft hated Psychedelic Stooges got their start in Anne Arbor in 1967. Jesus Loves the Stooges.

    … and they were not so much psychedelic as messily noisy and experimental. As with my own early efforts (much later than the embryonic Stooges), it was before ‘record everything’ became the rule.

    My opinion is that, if you weren’t there and didn’t hear or see it, it doesn’t matter, just that you weren’t there to see and/or hear it.

    View/hear a replay, it is not the same thing.

    Ephemerality is an important principle.

    Documentation of performance art (which is how the pre-LP Stooges saw themselves) is, in a sense, a betrayal. That there is no documentation of them from that time (except a few still photos) is a great thing in itself.

    Sure, they likely made great noise at times, but it is all the better that we who were not there cannot hear it out of context now.

    Hi Sam,

    I've spoken out about Israel many times, and no, I haven't visited the country. I could barely afford my recent trip to Atlanta and New Orleans.

    In March of 2015, I was interviewed by Tahseen al Khateeb, a Palestinian living in Jordan. Translated into Arabic, the interview was first published in Al Arab, a UK-based newspaper. An excerpt:


    Israel is an unprecedented historical mistake, for it makes no sense to claim a right of return for Jews after 2,000 years, but deny the same to Palestinians after six decades, though many have lost their homes much more recently, for this landgrab is an ongoing process that won’t end until all Palestinians disappear from “the Jewish homeland.” It’s tragic and farcical that a Chinese Jew can move to Jerusalem tomorrow, but not an exiled Palestinian who still has the key to his ancestral home. Israel is a violent concept that is executed and maintained with terror, and by this I mean American-sponsored Jewish terror, though these world class terrorists are so relentless with their propaganda, they have made “terrorist” nearly synonymous with their enemy, the Muslim. There is hope for Palestinians, however, for as the USA implodes, Israel will also go up in smoke. Working in tandem, the US and Israel have collapsed several Muslim governments and generated millions of refugees. The same fate awaits Israel, though its dissolution should be permanent, for only then will peace come.

    Those living outside the US can’t fathom the American media’s extreme bias towards Israel. During the 2014 attack on Gaza, for example, American television viewers were only shown images of Palestinian buildings being blown up from afar, as if there were no people working or living in them. No corpses were seen being pulled from rubbles. While Palestinian victims stayed invisible, a single missing Israeli soldier had stories about him, with his portrait featured to emphasize his humanity. Unlike Palestinians, this Jew had a face. Female Israeli soldiers were shown sobbing over their fallen (male) comrades. When the massacre of Palestinians was finally over, there were articles about how quickly Gaza had gotten back to normal, so it was no big deal, you see, this butchering of 2,192 people (as compared to 77 deaths on the Israeli side). As if to prove this point, photos were shown of bustling Gaza streets, with kids happily playing.

    On American television, there’s a peculiar show called “Inside Israeli Basketball.” Since the level of hoops in Israel is not particularly high, and its b-ballers are entirely unknown to an American audience, there is no sporting reason for this program, except that basketball is only a pretext to display Israel in a banal, and hence benign, light. Game footage and practice scenes make up only a small part of this show, for the camera often follows the players or coaches of Maccabi Haifa, the featured team, all over Israel. (Everywhere, of course, except Gaza and other troubled spots.) In one scene, one might visit a lovely beach, while in another, enter a Palestinian restaurant. Here, two teammates, an Israeli and a black American, enjoy camel rides, and one can see that they’re very chummy with each other. The American, Ike Ofoegbu, gushes, “Here in Israel, the guys are very nice. They speak English, first of all, so they can interact with you. They’re really friendly […] To finally be here in Israel is very exciting. I’m just blessed to be here.” Highly unusual for a reality show, there is no rancor or argument in “Inside Israeli Basketball,” and no trashy behavior at all. Here, you won’t find any screaming, backstabbing, jealousy or drunkenness, though these are the staples of just about every other reality show on American television. Always depicting Israel in an idyllic and harmonious light, this show is no more than propaganda, then, a carefully crafted mask to hide the endless violence needed to maintain this sham nation.

    Hi Sam,

    In 2012, I was interviewed by Kourosh Ziabari for Iran Review. An excerpt:

    Q: Who are running the U.S. mainstream media? Some progressive thinkers hold this view that the majority of the U.S. media are in the hands of a small group of influential and rich Zionists who dictate their political will to these media. Do you agree? Is this why the criticism of Israel cannot take place in the American media smoothly and unrestrictedly?

    A: The US mainstream media are owned and run by the military banking complex, by war profiteers and banksters, and that’s why the American mainstream media always obfuscate the many crimes committed by the ruling class. As for Zionist influences on American politics and media, it is clear that no American politician can rise to national prominence without declaring absolute fealty to Israel. When Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the American Congress in 2011, he received 29 standing ovations, such is the abject subservience of the American politician towards Israel. In the American mainstream media, then, every Israeli crime is ignored or explained away, then quickly forgotten. Americans don’t like to talk about divided loyalty, but it is an important factor in many people’s behavior. Just as many American blacks will vote for Obama primarily because he’s black, many American Jews cannot think straight when it comes to Israel. One must remember, however, that many of the harshest critics of Israel are also Jewish. On balance, however, Israel benefits greatly from the tremendous influence of American Zionists. Many of the most belligerent neoconservatives are Zionists, for example.

    I want to cite a small, rather personal anecdote that can shed some light on this situation. For several years, I was a part-time professor of creative writing at Bard College. Joel Kovel was a professor of social studies, and the college president, then as now, was Leon Botstein. After Kovel published a book that was critical of Israel, he was terminated from Bard. Seeing a causal effect, Kovel charged that he was being fired for his political views. I knew neither man personally, but I wanted to engage others in a discussion over this, so I sent an email to a Bard list serv, but to my astonishment, no one responded. As a Bard professor, there is nothing to gain, and much to lose, by questioning the school president, it is clear. Botstein is best known as a conductor, of the Jerusalem Orchestra among others, but Kovel is also Jewish, so what you have here is a conflict between two Jewish men, and the stronger one won.

    "...do you think Israel should exist..."
    You mean, proclaiming "America First (before Israel)" for Americans would translate into nonexistence of Israel? For what exactly reason the US citizenry should be loyal to Israel first and foremost? - To satisfy the ethnic pride of the mighty international Lobby? The US has been a wonderfully safe place for Jewery, but this was obviously not enough for the authors of PNAC and for other maniacs of ziocon persuasion.
    "...where do you want Israelis to go?"
    The massive migration of "Jews" from the former USSR to Israel was primarily economic. When having a choice, the absolute majority of the migrants tried to get to either to Western Europe or to North America. In Israel, the large numbers of migrants and religious fanatics are settlers on the natives' land. The sooner Israel accepts a one-democratic-state solution, the better for Jewery worldwide.

    ....do you think Israel should exist, and if not where do you want Israelis to go?
     
    Why do they need Israel? There are plenty of fine Jews here, in America and in many other countries, even Iran, which Netanyahu gets all goofy over. Jews are generally fine. Israelis on the other hand...Maybe you could buy them a more secure homeland, where they won't discredit all Jews, with the shekels you make off trading stocks.


    The Iranian lawmaker representing the country’s Jews has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rants against the Islamic Republic, saying he is “a bloodsucking” criminal who has a hand in the massacre of innocents and the occupation of Palestinian lands.

    “The Israeli premier has sunken in the quagmire of crime, and has never played any role beyond poisoning the [international mental] atmosphere, massacring innocent children and women, and tyrannically occupying the lands of Palestinian people,” said the Jewish legislator Siamak Moreh Sedgh.

    Iranian foreign minister calls Netanyahu’s Purim story fake history.

    {..Bibi, as on the cue, immediately revealed the reason for his visit. Persians wanted to kill Jews on that day, but God prevented that, he said. Nowadays Iranians, who are the Persians, want to kill the Jews, but the Jewish state is strong etc. Bibi came to ask Putin to drop Iran; to remove Iranian fighters from Syria; block Iranian transit to Lebanon; or even to join an anti-Iranian coalition, and this reference to Purim had been an argument in defence of his audacious request.}

    The author of this piece is better to expose the lies of the criminal Zionist tribe with their FAKE history, rather to copy them here without any critic. PURIM IS ANOTHER LIE TO play the fony victimization card.

    The foreign minister of Iran, Javad zarif, expose PURIM FAKE STORY to inform the world.
    In his tweet, Zarif wrote: “Once again, Benjamin Netanyahu not only distorts the realities of today, but also distorts the past — including Jewish scripture. It is truly regrettable that bigotry gets to the point of making allegations against an entire nation which has saved the Jews three times in its history.

    The terrorist Zionist colonists have NO connection to the Middle East or Palestine. They have occupied Palestine using their influence over empire after empire, Britain, French, and now American. They cannot be trusted and their history is FAKE. They have maintained their colony by USE OF FORCE and the support of the criminal West, and victimization card. Many of these Zionist Jews, in fact cooperated with the enemy of people including Hitler where has been written by many including Jews.

    One of the latest sources on this subject is the film “Andre Gregory : before and after dinner” that Gregory talks about his father, a businessman who lived in Germany then, was given a mission by Hitler as SPY to weaken Franc the French currency to weaken French economy to take them to the negotiation, exactly the same mission that the Zionists Jews are playing for the terrorist and criminal USG.
    Andre Gregory is an actor and director who was in film “My dinner with Andre” directed by Louis Malle.

    the criminal Zionists have influence over the illiterate and pathological liar Trump. It is very interesting that at PBS, in a discussion between Judy and Margarette, revealed that The YOUNG Zionist Jared Kushner – son in law of the illiterate ‘President’ – has more influence over the Middle East policy than the ‘secretary of state’. It is laughable, the least.

    The criminal Zionist tribe is still using victimization card to rule the world.

    Poor Chris is one of the most astute thinkers and postulators of the current pathetic nature of the world, but he must have lost any sense a humor completely… and that's not good, because even in olden days, the Court Jesters could say the truths that they could say, and they got away with it by making it all funny.

    Lin said a bit about the way the rich immigrants are coming to displace Americans, and that he sees this continuing, and not being effectively stopped by any revolutionary contrivances of Americans to defend their decimation, as is well underway over the entire country, if not yet widely acknowledged. And key, America is soon if not already the poorest nation, living on funny money and military force of extraction from the rest of the world. This is a transitory state of conditions, that can't hold indefinitely.

    I paraphrase of course, that was my take away from it. Also, to punctuate that last point though, if the rootless cosmopolitans of rich Carpet Baggers from China etc. gain not just the (long ago) Bridgehead, but then assemble a reasonable Critical Mass, be sure the well being of the American native struggling middling income and below, will slide, or be blithely Put to the Skids, hahaha… "You Amelicans are not so Crevver….!

    Another good article from you, and a good central point.

    Trump’s travails have been pretty punishing, tonight my best friend and her son took me to dinner, the now 18-y.o. son asked me what I think of Trump, I told him that he is taking a $1 salary, probably means well, but has bitter opposition, so probably can’t do many of the better things he’d like to do.

    The Donald sure needs to concentrate, he can’t allow himself to be sidelined, he has to fulfill at least some of his better promises.

    Even as non-USA, I was enjoying the idea of the cut to the UN budget, but will that even happen?

    Hope it does.

    You will be waiting forever for the Israelis to cave in the way the pathetic Europeans do w Germans and Swedes being Europe's most cuckified fools. Israeli Jews resist and defeat, demolish Muslim imperialism with its 1400 year track record as the world's most successful imperialism. Allah and the Aztec's Sun God both love/loved human sacrifice. But the Aztecs and their gods are gone while Allah's imperialist armies are still with us.

    I'll break it down so even the terminally stupid will understand:
    Europeans cucked and fucked, raped by Muslim invaders
    Israeli Jews not cucked and whatever murder and aggression the Muslims dish out, the Israelis will send them back at least twice as much.

    Israel has as valid a claim to "legal" foundation as any country that has ever existed or will ever exist.

    The terror used by the founders and the current state are on the low end of the scale when measured against other countries past and present.

    Stick to the post cards, your true gift, and leave the Jew-hating to the professionals.

    I admit that I can't stand Jews as a group. Why should any white, Christian American like Jews? They openly despise us, and generally support anything and everything that is viewed as harmful to traditional America. Jews are at the front of the line for just about every lousy social movement aimed at destroying America. What's to like?

  35. The real crime of Israel isn’t those killed in the Middle East. It’s the fact that WWI was extended by Jewish influence on Britain. Jews offered to get America into the war in exchange for the Balfour Declaration. This was when Germany was seeking a negotiated ceasefire and peace in 1916, which was rejected.

    Millions more white Europeans died, so Israel could be born. And of course had WWI ended in a truce there would be no WWII, and so on.

    Russians were FORCED to act by American machinations to vassalise Czechnia. The Russians used the means which Americans used earlier and elsewhere: military power. Same for Afghanistan. The piping or gas or oil business, or the Pentagon treatise about “mineral deposits” makes the US elite to meddle everywhere.
    In case of Ukraine….surprise!! You can not put that Russia killed 1.5 mln of Ukrainians! Russians applied another solution to Victoria Nuland/US investment in “democracy”, the famous 5,000,000,000 I think, of dollars, to create “spontaneous” Maidan.

    Now I wonder if same logic is used say during the Hungarian Revolution that Ukrainians were responsible , given they were pressed into the Soviet service at that time?

    The Russians were attacked by the various minorities under the Russian empire under the Bolshevik banner. When the reds won, then the Russians were pressed into the service of the basically anti-Russian nationalist , reds.

    People have been liquidated for nationalist reasons.....however the reason in that case was a multicultural leftist reason to destroy a socio-economic class of land owners, aka the Kulaks. This liquidation occurred in Russia. Ukraine being the bread basket it is was certainly going to get the worst of this. A prosperous farming peasant was quite plentiful in Ukraine.

    It should also be noted that the longest line of Soviet premiers in Khrushchev and Brezhnev were Ukrainian.

    Hi Sam,

    In 2012, I was interviewed by Kourosh Ziabari for Iran Review. An excerpt:

    Q: Who are running the U.S. mainstream media? Some progressive thinkers hold this view that the majority of the U.S. media are in the hands of a small group of influential and rich Zionists who dictate their political will to these media. Do you agree? Is this why the criticism of Israel cannot take place in the American media smoothly and unrestrictedly?

    A: The US mainstream media are owned and run by the military banking complex, by war profiteers and banksters, and that’s why the American mainstream media always obfuscate the many crimes committed by the ruling class. As for Zionist influences on American politics and media, it is clear that no American politician can rise to national prominence without declaring absolute fealty to Israel. When Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the American Congress in 2011, he received 29 standing ovations, such is the abject subservience of the American politician towards Israel. In the American mainstream media, then, every Israeli crime is ignored or explained away, then quickly forgotten. Americans don’t like to talk about divided loyalty, but it is an important factor in many people’s behavior. Just as many American blacks will vote for Obama primarily because he’s black, many American Jews cannot think straight when it comes to Israel. One must remember, however, that many of the harshest critics of Israel are also Jewish. On balance, however, Israel benefits greatly from the tremendous influence of American Zionists. Many of the most belligerent neoconservatives are Zionists, for example.

    I want to cite a small, rather personal anecdote that can shed some light on this situation. For several years, I was a part-time professor of creative writing at Bard College. Joel Kovel was a professor of social studies, and the college president, then as now, was Leon Botstein. After Kovel published a book that was critical of Israel, he was terminated from Bard. Seeing a causal effect, Kovel charged that he was being fired for his political views. I knew neither man personally, but I wanted to engage others in a discussion over this, so I sent an email to a Bard list serv, but to my astonishment, no one responded. As a Bard professor, there is nothing to gain, and much to lose, by questioning the school president, it is clear. Botstein is best known as a conductor, of the Jerusalem Orchestra among others, but Kovel is also Jewish, so what you have here is a conflict between two Jewish men, and the stronger one won.
     

    Dog on it, Linh Dinh made a lot of sense I thought on latest Chris Hedges interview, and even cheered up and leavened it against Chris’ all is woe… crushing dour delivery… woah!

    Poor Chris is one of the most astute thinkers and postulators of the current pathetic nature of the world, but he must have lost any sense a humor completely… and that’s not good, because even in olden days, the Court Jesters could say the truths that they could say, and they got away with it by making it all funny.

    Lin said a bit about the way the rich immigrants are coming to displace Americans, and that he sees this continuing, and not being effectively stopped by any revolutionary contrivances of Americans to defend their decimation, as is well underway over the entire country, if not yet widely acknowledged. And key, America is soon if not already the poorest nation, living on funny money and military force of extraction from the rest of the world. This is a transitory state of conditions, that can’t hold indefinitely.

    I paraphrase of course, that was my take away from it. Also, to punctuate that last point though, if the rootless cosmopolitans of rich Carpet Baggers from China etc. gain not just the (long ago) Bridgehead, but then assemble a reasonable Critical Mass, be sure the well being of the American native struggling middling income and below, will slide, or be blithely Put to the Skids, hahaha… “You Amelicans are not so Crevver….! ”

    Linh Dinh makes a lot a sense, thanks for the truthfulness!

    I don’t think Linh Dinh needs to fawn all over the Tribe because what he’s saying is, Americans need to take a look and use some self preservation tools, like they use, and that’s not very likely.

    Well I wasn't really expecting anything meaningfully different from the uninformed view pushed by this character Herskovitz, but even so, the following portion caught my attention:

    ....a Chinese Jew can move to Jerusalem tomorrow, but not an exiled Palestinian who still has the key to his ancestral home. Israel is a violent concept that is executed and maintained with terror, and by this I mean American-sponsored Jewish terror, though these world class terrorists are so relentless with their propaganda, they have made “terrorist” nearly synonymous with their enemy, the Muslim. There is hope for Palestinians, however, for as the USA implodes, Israel will also go up in smoke. Working in tandem, the US and Israel have collapsed several Muslim governments and generated millions of refugees. The same fate awaits Israel, though its dissolution should be permanent, for only then will peace come.

     

    A Chinese Jew cannot move to Israel tomorrow. He'd need to apply for aliyah, prove his antecedents and then if permitted, move, settle, establish bona fide employed status for a period of years before obtaining citizenship.

    "American sponsored Jewish terror" is wrong at so many levels; here morphs 'Israeli terror' - a highly debatable charge in relative terms, as the history of state formations reveal - seamlessly to 'Jewish terror' and the truth behind "Jews swarm me, fill my head, course through my veins.." peeks out:a visage of love and warmth indeed, not to put too fine a point on it.

    "...for as the USA implodes, Israel will also go up in smoke."

    How the US is imploding I should love to know. Yet another Rothschilds rant ??

    I wish to offer these theses which you may or may not accept. 1. Russian interference in American election is a hoax perpetrated by the deep state in an attempt to delegitimize Trump. 2. Israel is a terrorist illegally established state. The criminal act of dispossing the prior inhabitants took place in 1948 as did the masacre at Deir Yassin which fact is not denied like the Turks about the Armenians, but known to all thanks to honest Israeli historians like Benny Morris. Like the Alamo, urging one to remember Deir Yassin is supererogatory. 3. Every state going back to the beginning of our historical knowledge, and doubtless before that time as well, was founded on a crime, as Montesquiieu long ago observed in his Esprit des lois, by murder or enslavement of the prior inhabitants. The Jews did it in 1948. The US did it to the Redskins 300+ years ago. The Russians established their empire in the 18th century in the same way, by violence. The crimes behind the establishment of older nations like Denmark, Iran, and others, took place long ago and at best are murky. So why is the invariable rule in the establishment of nations without which it has never been seen to occur not to be extended to the hook-nosed tribe?

    You will be waiting forever for the Israelis to cave in the way the pathetic Europeans do w Germans and Swedes being Europe’s most cuckified fools. Israeli Jews resist and defeat, demolish Muslim imperialism with its 1400 year track record as the world’s most successful imperialism. Allah and the Aztec’s Sun God both love/loved human sacrifice. But the Aztecs and their gods are gone while Allah’s imperialist armies are still with us.

    I’ll break it down so even the terminally stupid will understand:
    Europeans cucked and fucked, raped by Muslim invaders
    Israeli Jews not cucked and whatever murder and aggression the Muslims dish out, the Israelis will send them back at least twice as much.

    That's all very well, long live Israel, but I wish the diaspora Jews in western countries stopped promoting immigration of Muslims, Africans, Mexicans and Others to all nations.

    You asked him, now you know.

    Well I wasn’t really expecting anything meaningfully different from the uninformed view pushed by this character Herskovitz, but even so, the following portion caught my attention:

    ….a Chinese Jew can move to Jerusalem tomorrow, but not an exiled Palestinian who still has the key to his ancestral home. Israel is a violent concept that is executed and maintained with terror, and by this I mean American-sponsored Jewish terror, though these world class terrorists are so relentless with their propaganda, they have made “terrorist” nearly synonymous with their enemy, the Muslim. There is hope for Palestinians, however, for as the USA implodes, Israel will also go up in smoke. Working in tandem, the US and Israel have collapsed several Muslim governments and generated millions of refugees. The same fate awaits Israel, though its dissolution should be permanent, for only then will peace come.

    A Chinese Jew cannot move to Israel tomorrow. He’d need to apply for aliyah, prove his antecedents and then if permitted, move, settle, establish bona fide employed status for a period of years before obtaining citizenship.

    American sponsored Jewish terror” is wrong at so many levels; here morphs ‘Israeli terror’ – a highly debatable charge in relative terms, as the history of state formations reveal – seamlessly to ‘Jewish terror’ and the truth behind “Jews swarm me, fill my head, course through my veins..” peeks out:a visage of love and warmth indeed, not to put too fine a point on it.

    “...for as the USA implodes, Israel will also go up in smoke.”

    I recall Linh had featured Herskovitz in an earlier piece. As you rightly pointed out in the past, it's something of a mystery why the cat-brought-in Jews need to be paraded to make anti-Jewish writing more palatable.

    I did look up Herskovitz:


    http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/144997/500-days-of-protest-in-ann-arbor

    But even many who are sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians regard Herskovitz’s group as an embarrassment. Imam Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Michigan, denounced the protest to The Arab American News, noting: “We’d be hypocrites to say it’s not civil in front of mosques yet to endorse it taking place at other houses of worship… There’s a time and place for everything, and it would not be fitting for us as Muslims to protest in front of Jewish synagogues on the Sabbath day.”

    Others point out that Dobrusin is a poor target, because the rabbi has been outspoken in his support for a two-state peace settlement. “The rabbi is one of the most outspoken for addressing full equality for Arab citizens,” said Ann Arbor City Councilman Chuck Warpehoski, director of the local Interfaith Council, which has condemned Herskovitz and his followers. “That’s his dream for what Israel should be. We’re talking about one of the people most willing to be critical of Israeli policy and he’s the one who’s targeted for this kind of abuse. It boggles the mind.”

    The criticism merely emboldens Herskovitz, who insisted the real victims have been his group and the Palestinian people. Herskovitz rattled off a list of incidents in which his supporters have been threatened, harmed or robbed while demonstrating, although he also claims the vast majority of motorists who honk are doing so in support. In an e-mail, he insisted “the unwillingness of elected officials to prosecute these crimes” should “play a significant role” in this report. Harb, for instance, said she was smacked on the back while setting up signs one Saturday, a case that was dismissed in court after a police report.

    Yet much of the enmity is firmly directed at Herskovitz. “He’s told me on more than one occasion that whatever happened to the Jews in World War II, they brought it upon themselves,” said Victor Lieberman, a congregant and UM history professor. Herskovitz was happy to elaborate on his disputes with Lieberman when asked about those confrontations. “I said it’s incumbent upon Jews to understand why they were hated and why they were treated so badly not only in Germany but other places,” he said. “For one thing, the Bolsheviks from Russia were coming into Germany and Hitler feared the Bolsheviks, which were dominated by Jewish leadership. So he looked around and said, ‘Well, I have all these Jews in Germany.’ It’s like the Japanese-Americans in World War Two, we didn’t trust them so we rounded them up. That’s what Hitler did.”

    It's your prerogative to express yourself as you like but it cheapens this important fact and just adds to the (often true) stereotype of White nationalists and race realists as being cranky old crackpots.

    In case of Ukraine....surprise!! You can not put that Russia killed 1.5 mln of Ukrainians! Russians applied another solution to Victoria Nuland/US investment in "democracy", the famous 5,000,000,000 I think, of dollars, to create "spontaneous" Maidan.
    So, whatever Russia did - it did by the bidding of USA. Even the use of force in Syria.

    Hi Sam,

    In 2012, I was interviewed by Kourosh Ziabari for Iran Review. An excerpt:

    Q: Who are running the U.S. mainstream media? Some progressive thinkers hold this view that the majority of the U.S. media are in the hands of a small group of influential and rich Zionists who dictate their political will to these media. Do you agree? Is this why the criticism of Israel cannot take place in the American media smoothly and unrestrictedly?

    A: The US mainstream media are owned and run by the military banking complex, by war profiteers and banksters, and that’s why the American mainstream media always obfuscate the many crimes committed by the ruling class. As for Zionist influences on American politics and media, it is clear that no American politician can rise to national prominence without declaring absolute fealty to Israel. When Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the American Congress in 2011, he received 29 standing ovations, such is the abject subservience of the American politician towards Israel. In the American mainstream media, then, every Israeli crime is ignored or explained away, then quickly forgotten. Americans don’t like to talk about divided loyalty, but it is an important factor in many people’s behavior. Just as many American blacks will vote for Obama primarily because he’s black, many American Jews cannot think straight when it comes to Israel. One must remember, however, that many of the harshest critics of Israel are also Jewish. On balance, however, Israel benefits greatly from the tremendous influence of American Zionists. Many of the most belligerent neoconservatives are Zionists, for example.

    I want to cite a small, rather personal anecdote that can shed some light on this situation. For several years, I was a part-time professor of creative writing at Bard College. Joel Kovel was a professor of social studies, and the college president, then as now, was Leon Botstein. After Kovel published a book that was critical of Israel, he was terminated from Bard. Seeing a causal effect, Kovel charged that he was being fired for his political views. I knew neither man personally, but I wanted to engage others in a discussion over this, so I sent an email to a Bard list serv, but to my astonishment, no one responded. As a Bard professor, there is nothing to gain, and much to lose, by questioning the school president, it is clear. Botstein is best known as a conductor, of the Jerusalem Orchestra among others, but Kovel is also Jewish, so what you have here is a conflict between two Jewish men, and the stronger one won.
     

    Kourosh Ziabari for Iran Review:
    “The US mainstream media are owned and run by the military banking complex, by war profiteers and banksters, and that’s why the American mainstream media always obfuscate the many crimes committed by the ruling class. As for Zionist influences on American politics and media, it is clear that no American politician can rise to national prominence without declaring absolute fealty to Israel.”

Greece and Turkey mutually did the same in the great migration after WW I, and India and Pakistan likewise after Partition. No one, not Jordan, not Lebanon, Syria, not the Mother Ship Saudi Arabia no one wants the Palestinian. Why not? Their misery provides a p.r. weapon and permanent guerrilla force with which to fight Israel. Oh, wasn’t Jordan the original 2 state solution in 1948? Please tell me the difference between a Jordanian and a Palestinian.

    It's largely because people who call themselves Jews own and control the gangster states known as Israel and the US, and do things that disgust decent folk, and add insult to injury by making others pay for their crimes, such as mass murder, oppression, and continuous, shameless theft on massive scales and that's just for starters.

    I recall Linh had featured Herskovitz in an earlier piece. As you rightly pointed out in the past, it's something of a mystery why the cat-brought-in Jews need to be paraded to make anti-Jewish writing more palatable.

    I did look up Herskovitz:


    http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/144997/500-days-of-protest-in-ann-arbor

    But even many who are sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians regard Herskovitz’s group as an embarrassment. Imam Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Michigan, denounced the protest to The Arab American News, noting: “We’d be hypocrites to say it’s not civil in front of mosques yet to endorse it taking place at other houses of worship… There’s a time and place for everything, and it would not be fitting for us as Muslims to protest in front of Jewish synagogues on the Sabbath day.”

    Others point out that Dobrusin is a poor target, because the rabbi has been outspoken in his support for a two-state peace settlement. “The rabbi is one of the most outspoken for addressing full equality for Arab citizens,” said Ann Arbor City Councilman Chuck Warpehoski, director of the local Interfaith Council, which has condemned Herskovitz and his followers. “That’s his dream for what Israel should be. We’re talking about one of the people most willing to be critical of Israeli policy and he’s the one who’s targeted for this kind of abuse. It boggles the mind.”

    The criticism merely emboldens Herskovitz, who insisted the real victims have been his group and the Palestinian people. Herskovitz rattled off a list of incidents in which his supporters have been threatened, harmed or robbed while demonstrating, although he also claims the vast majority of motorists who honk are doing so in support. In an e-mail, he insisted “the unwillingness of elected officials to prosecute these crimes” should “play a significant role” in this report. Harb, for instance, said she was smacked on the back while setting up signs one Saturday, a case that was dismissed in court after a police report.

    Yet much of the enmity is firmly directed at Herskovitz. “He’s told me on more than one occasion that whatever happened to the Jews in World War II, they brought it upon themselves,” said Victor Lieberman, a congregant and UM history professor. Herskovitz was happy to elaborate on his disputes with Lieberman when asked about those confrontations. “I said it’s incumbent upon Jews to understand why they were hated and why they were treated so badly not only in Germany but other places,” he said. “For one thing, the Bolsheviks from Russia were coming into Germany and Hitler feared the Bolsheviks, which were dominated by Jewish leadership. So he looked around and said, ‘Well, I have all these Jews in Germany.’ It’s like the Japanese-Americans in World War Two, we didn’t trust them so we rounded them up. That’s what Hitler did.”
     
    He does sound awfully similar to a regular UR philo-Semite doesn't he?!

    As you rightly pointed out in the past, it’s something of a mystery why the cat-brought-in Jews

    I don’t know the mechanics of why it works, but it fits with this paranoid tinged idea of a Jew-matrix that is in complete omnipotent control. One little clue, one little paragraph, one little speech, one book, one little historical revision, one little “truth-telling defector” and all is revealed, all will come unraveled, we will have the mother of all jenga revelations.

    I admit that I can't stand Jews as a group. Why should any white, Christian American like Jews? They openly despise us, and generally support anything and everything that is viewed as harmful to traditional America. Jews are at the front of the line for just about every lousy social movement aimed at destroying America. What's to like?

    I wonder how many white, Christian males get the same treatment from their Jewish professors and employers that Linh Dinh got/gets? My Jewish professors were mostly SJWs who thought people like me owe the world something.

    My Jewish professors were mostly SJWs who thought people like me owe the world something.

    My experience was similar. When some of them heard my goober accent and learned I was educated in DoDDS schools, they made no effort to hide their contempt. When it became apparent that I knew the subject as well as any student and perhaps better than they did themselves, their eyes widened with surprise — and just a hint of fear.
    With no offense intended to Linh Dinh, I think the Jews he knew treated him the way they did as part of the residue of the domestic politics of the Viet Nam war.

    Er … I’m not sure if you were informed, but the Chechen War ended 13 years ago. We’re still waiting for Israel to quit expanding their settlements.
     
    You will be waiting forever for the Israelis to cave in the way the pathetic Europeans do w Germans and Swedes being Europe's most cuckified fools. Israeli Jews resist and defeat, demolish Muslim imperialism with its 1400 year track record as the world's most successful imperialism. Allah and the Aztec's Sun God both love/loved human sacrifice. But the Aztecs and their gods are gone while Allah's imperialist armies are still with us.

    I'll break it down so even the terminally stupid will understand:
    Europeans cucked and fucked, raped by Muslim invaders
    Israeli Jews not cucked and whatever murder and aggression the Muslims dish out, the Israelis will send them back at least twice as much.

    That’s all very well, long live Israel, but I wish the diaspora Jews in western countries stopped promoting immigration of Muslims, Africans, Mexicans and Others to all nations.

    Maybe Europeans and Americans should send both their Jews and Muslims back to the Middle East to fight it out. And may the best win.

    I agree. Jews have such influence in America but not in Europe. Contrast this with Israeli Jews who put up effective border fences and found an effective way to get rid of thousands of sub-Saharan African illegal aliens who got in before the fences got put up. They gave these Africans a decent amount of cash to return home, then ejected them into a nearby African nation that Israel paid off millions to take them temporarily.

    When do Euro nations have the cojones to mass eject thousands of illegals? Actually you can check out (confirm details on the internet) Switzerland which forced out a million or so Turkish guest workers when their labor was no longer needed. Unlike Germany who let them stay.

    Wow, kind of like cleaning up after a particularly wild party, I guess I just declare some random place "the beginning" and forge on from there.

    I'd guess Linh's wonderful treatment had less to do with admirable Jews doting upon a random Goy than SJWs virtue signaling how good they are in helping out a victim class representative, a poor schlep from the "American war of aggression in Indochina."

    I'd also point out his paragraph of praise reminds me of how every white who cares what people think of them says the stock line "I love blacks, some of my best friends are black, but ..." to preface an Archie Bunker rant about "the coloreds." Just state your case without all the fake syrup and people will respect you more. You know, Trump.

    Israel is founded upon the use of terror as an illegal state? Please regal me with stories about the founding of modern Ireland, the French Revolution, any communist government takeover. Establishing any state has nothing to do with right or wrong as much as the strength of the will of the founders.

    Americans lack courage? I don't have time for a book to refute this.

    Oh, the maltreatment of the Palestinian. The English resettled their own who were kicked from Ireland in 1920. Germany absorbed their diaspora which was expelled from other countries in the late 1940s (look up Benes Doctrine). Poland absorbed Poles from the east when it was shifted over. Greece and Turkey mutually did the same in the great migration after WW I, and India and Pakistan likewise after Partition. No one, not Jordan, not Lebanon, Syria, not the Mother Ship Saudi Arabia no one wants the Palestinian. Why not? Their misery provides a p.r. weapon and permanent guerrilla force with which to fight Israel. Oh, wasn't Jordan the original 2 state solution in 1948? Please tell me the difference between a Jordanian and a Palestinian.

    The Jews are just another people like any other, not my betters, not some comic book villain. I neither love nor hate them any more than, I don't know, Walloons. Whether Israel is religious enough or a sham to "true Jews" is their matter not mine. They may think they're God's perfection of humanity, but so do the Japanese, Muslims and Chinese. Yay, you. Excuse me while I worry less about the "perfidious Jew" and a bit more about the East Asians who not only have their own Chosen People mindset but also the numbers and power to back it up against Euro derived me.

Israelis on the other hand…Maybe you could buy them a more secure homeland, where they won’t discredit all Jews, with the shekels you make off trading stocks.

    The Iranian lawmaker representing the country’s Jews has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rants against the Islamic Republic, saying he is “a bloodsucking” criminal who has a hand in the massacre of innocents and the occupation of Palestinian lands.

    “The Israeli premier has sunken in the quagmire of crime, and has never played any role beyond poisoning the [international mental] atmosphere, massacring innocent children and women, and tyrannically occupying the lands of Palestinian people,” said the Jewish legislator Siamak Moreh Sedgh.

    The massive migration of "Jews" from the former USSR to Israel was primarily economic. When having a choice, the absolute majority of the migrants tried to get to either to Western Europe or to North America. In Israel, the large numbers of migrants and religious fanatics are settlers on the natives' land. The sooner Israel accepts a one-democratic-state solution, the better for Jewery worldwide.

    1. The constant dumping of mass immigration from the 3rd world on the country
    2. Increased financialization and concentration of wealth at the top
    3. Constant war

    How exactly are Jews responsible more than Episcopalians, Catholics or Hindus?

    You are joking right? You said that with tongue in cheek right? You are not that uninformed are you?

    Jews were instrumental in the immigration law changes.

    Jews run the financialization banking and stock situation in America.

    Jews are the propagandists that got America into the ME wars.

    If Linn and Harry want to see their future they need look no further than their mutual friend Randy List.

    Broke , broken and physically ill due to his internalized hatred of Jews , his wife hates him , she says he is obsessed and he is consumed with committing suicide. In reality Mr List doesn't hate Jews , he hates himself . Jews become a handy strawman .

    Linn is no different. Physically repulsive , his friends found in bar rooms , often substance abusers ,admittedly broke. His wife likely hates him ( Jew hatred is a mans malady by and large). He even goes so far to make up stories that he lost his virginity to a Jewish woman , oblivious to the fact that everyone knows caucasian women almost never pair with or are attracted to mongoloid men. Look at linhs photos and begin to understand his self hatred.

    Wow, kind of like cleaning up after a particularly wild party, I guess I just declare some random place "the beginning" and forge on from there.

    I'd guess Linh's wonderful treatment had less to do with admirable Jews doting upon a random Goy than SJWs virtue signaling how good they are in helping out a victim class representative, a poor schlep from the "American war of aggression in Indochina."

    I'd also point out his paragraph of praise reminds me of how every white who cares what people think of them says the stock line "I love blacks, some of my best friends are black, but ..." to preface an Archie Bunker rant about "the coloreds." Just state your case without all the fake syrup and people will respect you more. You know, Trump.

    Israel is founded upon the use of terror as an illegal state? Please regal me with stories about the founding of modern Ireland, the French Revolution, any communist government takeover. Establishing any state has nothing to do with right or wrong as much as the strength of the will of the founders.

    Americans lack courage? I don't have time for a book to refute this.

    Oh, the maltreatment of the Palestinian. The English resettled their own who were kicked from Ireland in 1920. Germany absorbed their diaspora which was expelled from other countries in the late 1940s (look up Benes Doctrine). Poland absorbed Poles from the east when it was shifted over. Greece and Turkey mutually did the same in the great migration after WW I, and India and Pakistan likewise after Partition. No one, not Jordan, not Lebanon, Syria, not the Mother Ship Saudi Arabia no one wants the Palestinian. Why not? Their misery provides a p.r. weapon and permanent guerrilla force with which to fight Israel. Oh, wasn't Jordan the original 2 state solution in 1948? Please tell me the difference between a Jordanian and a Palestinian.

    The Jews are just another people like any other, not my betters, not some comic book villain. I neither love nor hate them any more than, I don't know, Walloons. Whether Israel is religious enough or a sham to "true Jews" is their matter not mine. They may think they're God's perfection of humanity, but so do the Japanese, Muslims and Chinese. Yay, you. Excuse me while I worry less about the "perfidious Jew" and a bit more about the East Asians who not only have their own Chosen People mindset but also the numbers and power to back it up against Euro derived me.

    aren’t all those examples between 2 sovereign states/powers? just a reshuffling of their people who crossed borders in the past. which is entirely different than a group of people backed by the super power that won WWII, kicking an entire people from their homes and land.

    you don’t care? yay? what does that have to do with anything? I bet you would care when someone else forces you off of your home and land at gun point. never thought someone would attempt to make being selfish and uncaring sound righteous. bravo for that at least.

    My point was that the dirty rotten shame of it is that the Palestinians' own cousin Arabs lock them out and put them into permanent squalor. Amazing how the Gulf State Arab Muslims can hire help from every other country on earth and pay them well but can't move in a chunk of Palestinians, that the kafir halfway across the world worries more than they do.

    And the reshuffling of other peoples was entirely different because 1) the ME sovereign states told their own fellow Arabs to flee their homeland so the surrounding Arabs could have an easier time of pushing Israel into the sea, then selfishly and uncaringly left them in camps for 60 years as a big middle finger to them, and 2) in the other migrations, those people many times had a better claim on their old lands than Palestinians had. Greeks kicked out by the Young Turks were in Asia Minor since the Classical Era. Germans settled parts of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia since when the Goths came down at the end of Rome. The subcontinent's Hindus and Muslims finding themselves on the wrong side of a new border left lands they probably lived in since 3000 b.c. You seem to make light of the other times people left their ancestral lands. I'm sure the Greeks from Smyrna or Constantinople felt their loss no less.

    Did I tell you that Jews have been most instrumental in my life? In college, my three most supportive professors, Boris Putterman, Stephen Berg and Eileen Neff, were Jews, with Berg and Neff practically my surrogate parents, they nurtured me so much. Berg bought a painting of mine to put over his fireplace, and lent me money several times. My fiction publisher, Dan Simon, is Jewish, and Jewish Ron Unz has treated me better than any other webzine editor. Novelist Matthew Sharpe has talked me up in the fiction world. I can go on and on. Hell, my first date was with a Jewish girl, and I even lost my virginity to a Jew! I traveled through remote northwest Vietnam with photographer Mitch Epstein, and with 6-9 Lloyd Luntz, explored the Mekong Delta. Jews swarm me, fill my head, course through my veins. I can go on and on.

    Why do they need Israel? There are plenty of fine Jews here, in America and in many other countries, even Iran, which Netanyahu gets all goofy over. Jews are generally fine. Israelis on the other hand...Maybe you could buy them a more secure homeland, where they won't discredit all Jews, with the shekels you make off trading stocks.


    The Iranian lawmaker representing the country’s Jews has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rants against the Islamic Republic, saying he is “a bloodsucking” criminal who has a hand in the massacre of innocents and the occupation of Palestinian lands.

    “The Israeli premier has sunken in the quagmire of crime, and has never played any role beyond poisoning the [international mental] atmosphere, massacring innocent children and women, and tyrannically occupying the lands of Palestinian people,” said the Jewish legislator Siamak Moreh Sedgh.

On the other hand, not to argue against them is to let them win by default. To argue against rubbish is to immerse oneself in rubbish; not to argue against rubbish is to allow it to triumph.

    This “business model” brings together the war-profiteering lunatics and mythology-crazed maniacs. A family feud between Jews and Arabs has been converted into a catastrophe in the Middle East, which has been sacking the resources from in the US and EU (and tarnishing their reputations). In the course of the catastrophe, the Israeli “businesspeople” have sided with the bloody Saudis (paragon of democracy, are not they?) and with the “moderate jihadis” of Al Qaeda/ISIS (don’t even try to accuse me of antisemitism – read Jewish press on the Israelis’ special relations with ISIS and such). This very profitable “business model” has been approaching, steadily, a nuclear conflict, since your favorite businesspeople want to have a piece of Syria by any means, and they want to destroy Iran by any means.

    The U.S. has a steeply progressive tax system under which Jews, almost surely in the top 1%, 5% and 10% of income earners, contribute the bulk of tax revenues, which in turn implies these groups subsidise a great many people in the U.S. Of course, non-Jews in these groups do the same, but I haven't seen any of them complain about Israel getting roughly a fifth of the 0.17% of GDP which the U.S. spends on ODA. In fact, in my experience, all non-jewish 1%ers are highly supportive of Israel.

    So the complainers are essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.

    thank you.
  110. Gilad Atzmon in Veterans Today, 3/9/17:

    Alan Dershowitz – The Key To Athens

    In his recent address to the ultra-Zionist and war-mongering Stand With Us, Alan Dershowitz said, “people say Jews are too powerful, too strong, too rich, we control the media, we’ve too much this, too much that and we often apologetically deny our strength and our power. Don’t do that!”

    Elder Zionist Dershowitz who acquired for himself the reputation of a “remarkable liar” (Chomsky) and a “serial plagiarist” (Finkelstein) probably decided, just before he meets his creator, to give truth one last try.

    In our world, no one can deny that Jews are “too powerful,” “too rich” or that they “control the media.”

    Yet no one can ignore that Jews themselves are rarely apologetic about their extensive and overblown power. In fact, as with Dershowitz, most Jews tend to boast about the various facets of Jewish domination and, while boasting, use every trick in the book to silence anyone else who points to that power. As I have been arguing for several years, Jewish power is the ability to suppress the discussion on Jewish power.

    Actually, Dershowitz’ approach here is rather refreshing. He admits that Jews are overwhelmingly powerful yet insists on presenting a rationale as to why Jews should never apologize about this overbearing and abusive power.

    “WE (the Jews, presumably) have earned the right to influence public debate, WE have earned the right to be heard, WE have contributed disproportionately to success of this country.”

    One may wonder who is included in that‘WE’ that has contributed so much to the ‘success’ of America. Is he referring to his client and close friend Jeffrey Epstein who pimped under-aged girls for the elites? Does Dershowitz’ ‘WE’ include Alan Greenspan who led the country to class genocide? Or perhaps his ‘WE’ denotes all those Wall Street Jewish bankers, like the Goldmans, the Sachs and the Soroses – those who, on a daily basis, gamble on the American future and the global economy. And almost certainly, Dershowitz’ ‘WE’ includes Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson who have managed to reduce American politics into merely an internal Zionist affair.

    Don’t get me wrong, there is no doubt that some Jews have contributed greatly to America’s culture, science, finance and so one. Yet, the notion of the Jewish ‘WE,’ which Dershowitz is here pushing is highly problematic and must be questioned. While it is obvious that the Saban and Adelson lobbies for Israel and Jewish interests subscribe to Dershowitz’ ‘WE,’ it is far from clear whether the likes of Philip Roth have been contributing to American literature as an ordinary American or whether he also is part of the Dershowitz ‘WE.’

    It didn’t take the old ethnic-cleansing enthusiast long to deliver his punch line. “Never ever apologize for using our (Jewish) strength and influence in the interest of peace.”

    Considering Dershowitz’ role as an advocate of wars and an apologist for a criminal state, I was perplexed by his pronouncement. I asked myself, “Who are those Jews who so use their strength and influence in the interest of peace? Is it the Neocon school aka The Project for the New American Century, an immoral interventionist global-Zionist collective that managed to pull America and the entire West into a global war with no end? Or maybe it is the ‘pacifist’ Albert Einstein who practically launched the Manhattan Project and introduced our planet to the imminent danger of eradication? Or perhaps Dershowitz is referring to Sidney Blumenthal who enthusiastically lobbied Secretary of State Clinton into a Libyan imperial intervention while he himself invested in the rebuilding of that state. Or is it the Jewish lobby that pushes constantly for intervention in Syria and war with Iran?

    I’d better admit that I’m not aware of many Jews who genuinely use their ‘influence in the interest of peace,’ but when such Jews do appear, Alan Dershowitz is always the first to throw mud at them – as Norman Finkelstein and Richard Falk can testify.

    Palestinians killed by Israel 24,000
    Chechens killed by Russia 150,000

    Keith says:

    Chechens killed by Russia 150, ooo.
    Palestinians killed by Israel 24,ooo

    The Germans allegedly killed 6 million

    The difference is that the Germans killed the wrong people. This is why we have a Holocaust museum in every state in the US.

    Americans killed how many American natives, black slaves, North Vietnamese, Afghans, Libyans, and Iraqs? The list goes on. Let’s not discuss the tally of deaths by the U.K. and French empires.

    ” want to know who rules you, know who you can’t criticize”.

    Nope…. ” want to know who rules you, you better know who you can’t kill and who’s lives are more valuable”.

    This Holocaust religion has made every other ethnicity lives valueless and deaths insignificant. Who cares about the deaths of people with no power?

    The short answer.. No one!

    Why would you choose to use an insulting anti-Semitic cartoon in your title if you so dislike uncivility ??

    The reason may be that the creator A Wyatt Mann , like you , is a grossly overweight and thoroughly unattractive mongoloid . A fellow traveler. Both thrilled by white nationalism , anti-Semitism and racism , despite being non-white mongoloids. Another beta mongoloid that unfortunately is found to be unattractive to the opposite sex .

    Now don't get me wrong. I love mongoloids , especially Vietnamese people . In fact I ate pho last week , had a childhood friend from Vietnam named Phillip and had sex with half a dozen Vietnamese girls. They weren't virgins , but they sure felt like they were !!!!!! Probably due to the fact that their previous experience was with Vietnamese guys !!!! What's not to love ???

    Yeah - been there. I always look forward to that one poetic zinger in your articles, this one got to me - love the imagery:
    "Jews swarm me, fill my head, course through my veins."

    I've also had generally very good personal interactions with Jewish people - I think the only really hostile ones have been all online (well there were those pro-Israeli rallies that we used to protest in the old campus days - I had less grey hairs and pounds back then).

    Also, please bear in mind:

    What kind of name is “Linh Dinh” anyhow? Assuming it’s some sort of nomen mundi tertii (third world name) I see it as an insult to the western heritage of this country.
     
    You are hereby guilty of a micro-aggression, your comment board is no longer a safe-space for all. I suggest you change your name and apologize - also, please submit the apology of those who named you, they are also guilty (if they have passed away - a notarized letter from the attorney of their estate would suffice). Repentance would also be helpful.

    Peace.

    Don't have a sister - but sure, I'd let my daughter marry one if he converted. I mean she herself is named after the Jewish wife of the Prophet (pbuh). Some of the other wives teased her about being Jewish so she complained to the Prophet (pbuh) and he told her the proper response; "Why did you not say: 'And how are you better than me, while my husband is Muhammad and my father is Aaron, and my uncle is Moses?'" - reported in Tirmidhi

    Sure if he wasn’t a Jew.
     
    "Jew" can be an ethnic identity or a religious one. The same One Who orders me to treat a Jewish man as a fully enfranchised brother once he says the shahadah, also orders me to refuse him to marry my daughter until he says it. We do not get to pick and choose.
    "O you who believe! Enter into Islam completely; and follow not the footsteps of Shaytan; for he is to you an avowed enemy." (2:208)

    Brotherhood is not skin deep, it is a mutual recognition of rights and obligations - it must firmly be rooted in a belief shared by both that the both of them are equal before their Maker.

    that does not change the fact that group differences are real.
     
    Indeed. I can only speak for my tradition when I say: God is fully aware of the difference and takes credit for them Himself and He has made it clear...He. Does. Not. Care.

    "And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colours: verily in that are Signs for men of knowledge." (30:22)

    "O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is All-Knowing and All-Aware." (49:13)

    "Verily, God does not look at your figures nor at your faces but He looks at your hearts and your deeds." - reported in Muslim

    Our genetic differences will end once the bacteria has scraped the last tasty morsel off our carcasses and from inside our skulls - spiritual brotherhood is what will carry on after.

    Israel is founded upon the use of terror as an illegal state?...Establishing any state has nothing to do with right or wrong as much as the strength of the will of the founders.

     

    It's incisive alright, but not in the way youse dudes intend. I agree that states are founded on lies, theft, murder and terror but rather than justifying Israel's means or goals, that argues against the formation of such states.

    BTW, Neither a 1 state nor a 2 state solution will bring peace. Inevitably goons float to the top and make a mess of everything. The political history of the last century provides ample support for the claim, no?

    That’s all very well, long live Israel, but I wish the diaspora Jews in western countries stopped promoting immigration of Muslims, Africans, Mexicans and Others to all nations.
     
    I agree. Jews have such influence in America but not in Europe. Contrast this with Israeli Jews who put up effective border fences and found an effective way to get rid of thousands of sub-Saharan African illegal aliens who got in before the fences got put up. They gave these Africans a decent amount of cash to return home, then ejected them into a nearby African nation that Israel paid off millions to take them temporarily.

    When do Euro nations have the cojones to mass eject thousands of illegals? Actually you can check out (confirm details on the internet) Switzerland which forced out a million or so Turkish guest workers when their labor was no longer needed. Unlike Germany who let them stay.

    “They gave these Africans a decent amount of cash to return home,”

    A lot of pressure is being applied to bring change in Israel.first and foremost by the arab lobby.this is not about America first.or make America great again or america whatever.the sole aim is to put a wedge between American support for Israel in order to destroy Israel and expel Jews from the region.

    I think it has more to do with the path the Khazars have burned, over the last couple of centuries, finally catching up with them, but go ahead and blame the Arabs, since you always have a nebulous phantom in the shadows to justify your butchery.

    The U.S. has a steeply progressive tax system under which Jews, almost surely in the top 1%, 5% and 10% of income earners, contribute the bulk of tax revenues, which in turn implies these groups subsidise a great many people in the U.S. Of course, non-Jews in these groups do the same, but I haven’t seen any of them complain about Israel getting roughly a fifth of the 0.17% of GDP which the U.S. spends on ODA. In fact, in my experience, all non-jewish 1%ers are highly supportive of Israel.

    So the complainers are essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.

    41And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

    Well, how many homes do some of them need? I'd guess that most American Jews feel as if the USA is a fairly homey home. In fact, I doubt that there is any huge hankering for great numbers of them to go to Israel despite Israel's well known and persistent encouragement of them to do so.

    Are you, in fact, suggesting Israelis move to the U.S and Europe? For what else could you possibly mean by ” Well, how many homes do some of them need?” Do you know if many of them do have homes outside Israel? Or is this just sheete you are slinging? I was talking about Israelis requiring a home just like any other people, not American Jews.

    Palestinians are not goyim, but more accurately muslimeem. And they need their own state. You speak rather airily about goons rising to the top, begging the natural question, if you, Sir Sheete , have in mind the parameters of an ideal state. We are all ears.

    Yes, I agree the Brits created the mess, as did the US, but who was pushing for those decisions and actions behind the men in power?

    We choose to focus on the Jewish Problem, the thing that has ruined the world, rather than the Jordanians as you suggest.

    WWI? Jews. WWII? Jews. Terrorism? Jews. False flags? Jews. Brutal bullying butchery? Jews. Torture, murder, rape? Jews. Victims? The boy who cried wolf?

    Notice that all of the above cute 'traits' are prerequisites to become Prime Minister in the war criminal concentration camp known as 'Israel'.

    Since 9/11, the precursor to the invasion of the Middle East for the purpose of imposing the Yinon Plan and the Greater Israel (an illegitimate rogue state who has no borders or constitution), the world has only suffered. Their imperialist expansion has created the refugee crisis. They create chaos merely to gain more control and power

    Their parasitic existence needs to end. If Israel wants to sit at the table with the adults, it is time for them to be self-sustaining - not leeching an annual allowance from everyone else - by brow-beating anyone who questions their actions and motives, proselytizing their 'chosen' victim-hood in order to brainwash the goy world in our own institutions of education, media and entertainment (via Zio-propaganda), and through their true religion (Holocaust), it's mandatorily-imposed fraud industry, Kosher Kickbacks, Rothchild usury and the undying thirst to spill innocent blood to increase their 'worth', just to name a few of the more egregious violations.

    If this alarms you, don't worry, as soon as the pressure mounts for significant actions to finally take place against them, another false-flag attack will occur to draw the focus away from them for what they have always done, continue to do, and instead spin the narrative back to their eternal victim-hood at the hands of the evil Muslims - or whomever they choose the world focus on as their latest 'enemy', for their own gains.

    It's a very deep and subversive web they have woven and, ironically, litigating to stop the debate, inquiries toward or to bring sanctions against the illegitimate rogue state, only reveals the depths of their disgusting detestable deceptions.

    I don’t see it. If he replaced ‘Jew’ with ‘Muslim’ I would see it as a praiseworthy statement – I gave it poetic license.

    Sure if he wasn’t a Jew.

    “Jew” can be an ethnic identity or a religious one. The same One Who orders me to treat a Jewish man as a fully enfranchised brother once he says the shahadah, also orders me to refuse him to marry my daughter until he says it. We do not get to pick and choose.
    “O you who believe! Enter into Islam completely; and follow not the footsteps of Shaytan; for he is to you an avowed enemy.” (2:208)

    Brotherhood is not skin deep, it is a mutual recognition of rights and obligations – it must firmly be rooted in a belief shared by both that the both of them are equal before their Maker.

    that does not change the fact that group differences are real.

    Indeed. I can only speak for my tradition when I say: God is fully aware of the difference and takes credit for them Himself and He has made it clear…He. Does. Not. Care.

    “And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colours: verily in that are Signs for men of knowledge.” (30:22)

    “O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is All-Knowing and All-Aware.” (49:13)

    “Verily, God does not look at your figures nor at your faces but He looks at your hearts and your deeds.” – reported in Muslim

    Our genetic differences will end once the bacteria has scraped the last tasty morsel off our carcasses and from inside our skulls – spiritual brotherhood is what will carry on after.

    The U.S. has a steeply progressive tax system under which Jews, almost surely in the top 1%, 5% and 10% of income earners, contribute the bulk of tax revenues, which in turn implies these groups subsidise a great many people in the U.S. Of course, non-Jews in these groups do the same, but I haven't seen any of them complain about Israel getting roughly a fifth of the 0.17% of GDP which the U.S. spends on ODA. In fact, in my experience, all non-jewish 1%ers are highly supportive of Israel.

    So the complainers are essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.

    Hi Sam,

    In 2012, I was interviewed by Kourosh Ziabari for Iran Review. An excerpt:

    Q: Who are running the U.S. mainstream media? Some progressive thinkers hold this view that the majority of the U.S. media are in the hands of a small group of influential and rich Zionists who dictate their political will to these media. Do you agree? Is this why the criticism of Israel cannot take place in the American media smoothly and unrestrictedly?

    A: The US mainstream media are owned and run by the military banking complex, by war profiteers and banksters, and that’s why the American mainstream media always obfuscate the many crimes committed by the ruling class. As for Zionist influences on American politics and media, it is clear that no American politician can rise to national prominence without declaring absolute fealty to Israel. When Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the American Congress in 2011, he received 29 standing ovations, such is the abject subservience of the American politician towards Israel. In the American mainstream media, then, every Israeli crime is ignored or explained away, then quickly forgotten. Americans don’t like to talk about divided loyalty, but it is an important factor in many people’s behavior. Just as many American blacks will vote for Obama primarily because he’s black, many American Jews cannot think straight when it comes to Israel. One must remember, however, that many of the harshest critics of Israel are also Jewish. On balance, however, Israel benefits greatly from the tremendous influence of American Zionists. Many of the most belligerent neoconservatives are Zionists, for example.

    I want to cite a small, rather personal anecdote that can shed some light on this situation. For several years, I was a part-time professor of creative writing at Bard College. Joel Kovel was a professor of social studies, and the college president, then as now, was Leon Botstein. After Kovel published a book that was critical of Israel, he was terminated from Bard. Seeing a causal effect, Kovel charged that he was being fired for his political views. I knew neither man personally, but I wanted to engage others in a discussion over this, so I sent an email to a Bard list serv, but to my astonishment, no one responded. As a Bard professor, there is nothing to gain, and much to lose, by questioning the school president, it is clear. Botstein is best known as a conductor, of the Jerusalem Orchestra among others, but Kovel is also Jewish, so what you have here is a conflict between two Jewish men, and the stronger one won.
     

    “…Some progressive thinkers hold this view that the majority of the U.S. media are in the hands of a small group of influential and rich Zionists who dictate their political will to these media…”

    “…A: The US mainstream media are owned and run by the military banking complex, by war profiteers and banksters, and that’s why the American mainstream media always obfuscate the many crimes committed by the ruling class…”

    Both are true as the Jews own the media, the banks and the military industrial complex. Look into who owns the largest shares in the defense companies.

    The Nuremberg trials were no better than the jewish communist "show trials" of the Soviet Union. In fact, a number of judges lamented that these trials were a fiasco, in which TRUTH was not allowed to be presented, and that defendants were tortured..
    Torture was evident by the testimony of some of the defendants. The claims that gassed human bodies were seen as containing yellow or purple "splotches" rather than the bright red skin consistent with gassing or carbon monoxide poisoning speaks VOLUMES.
    Even holohoax (oops, I mean "holocaust ™") survivors have repeated the same fabrications, among others, such as their ability to tell who was being burned, just by the smell. Their claims were that they could tell jews from gentiles...

    The world went to war against Germany because they wanted territory returned to them that was taken away from them in WW 1.
     
    I can understand perfectly why Weimar Germany didn't want its financial sector dominated by a small ethnically separate Jewish minority (2%) organizing things for their own benefit - and actually increasing their share of German real asset ownership in the great hyperinflation of 1923 (to more than 30% of city property) while the German middle class was wiped out.

    But still, German nationalism had two branches.

    One was internal, to remove Jewish domination of their post WWI society with its ridicule of German traditions, and indifference to decadence and corruption, but the other had deeper pre WWI roots, in ideas of German racial superiority and Imperial destiny (both borrowed to some extent from the late 19th Century British) with the big difference/problem that countries like Britain had an Empire but Germany didn't.

    Plenty of pre WWI German literature expounded the idea that Germany also had a natural right to an Empire, and the designated area was the East, often specifically stating that the New Germany would extend to the Urals in the East and include the Ukraine in the South (with the Black Sea coast as a sort of holiday resort exclusively for Germans). Hitler just adopted these ideas and activated them, so to speak, killing two birds with one stone - getting rid of the Bolshevik Jews and at the same time founding Germany's 1000 Year Empire.

    The Germans didn't just invade Poland. They also invaded France, Belgium, Holland, Scandinavia, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Greece, North Africa and Russia so it's a stretch to say that they only "wanted their territory returned to them". There were active ideas of racial superiority and Lebensraum involved.

    The complete quote of your post was " “…essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.” But you were blind to the second half of your own phrase that was about the perennial Jewish victims of jealousy. Complex extinction, no less.

    "Anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient."
    Is this a pean to the financial sector dominated by the 1%-ers? Here is an excellent article by Michael Hudson (a real authority on economics), which explains the roots and consequences of our financialized economy. Brace yourself: "How Bankers Became the Top Exploiters of the Economy" http://www.counterpunch.org/2017/03/15/how-bankers-became-the-top-exploiters-of-the-economy/
    "If you look at the economic framework in terms of assets and debt, you find that the 1% makes its money by holding the 99% in debt. Or at least, you could say that the 5% make its money by holding the 95% in debt.... Finance capitalism is overwhelming industrial capitalism... it is retrogressing back to neo-serfdom and neo-feudalism.
    …if you’re looking at how wealth is accumulated, people think of it in the way textbooks describe: as earning income and saving it up to get rich. That’s all most wage earners can do. But that’s not how it happens at the top of the pyramid. Most wealth takes the form of capital gains. They’re inflated on credit, so it’s really asset price inflation that’s financed by debt leverage. Most of the gains end up being paid out as interest, so the bankers – that is, the bank owners and bondholders – end up with most of the rise in wealth. ...Most money is made by financial engineering, not by industrial engineering. It’s made by what the classical economists called unearned income."
  161. There’s one idea that describes the Jews perfectly. It describes their parasitism, their, lying, their chameleon like behavior, their sense of superiority and belief that they are different from everyone else. There’s a simple explanation for why the Jews are hated so much that also explains their behavior and success. The Jews are a tribe of psychopaths. No all, maybe not even the majority, but a large number. All of the Jews ancient writings are nothing more than a manual for psychopaths to live by. The Talmud is nothing but one psychopathic thought after another. The Talmud “great enlightenment” basically says that everyone not Jewish is there to serve Jews. All their property is really the Jews. No one is really human unless they’re Jews and their lives don’t matter. A psychopathic religion for a psychopathic people.

    They’ve been thrown out of every single country that they’ve been to in any numbers. Psychopaths having no empathy themselves can only go by the feedback they get from the people they are exploiting. So they push and push to see what they can get away with. The normal people build up resentment towards them. Thinking “surely they will reform or repent” like a normal person who does wrong. Of course the Jews do not. They don’t have the mental process for reform. Then in a huge mass outpouring of hate for the Jews, fed up with the refusal to reform their behavior, they attack and/or deport them. In this stage of the cycle the Big/Rich Jews escape and the little Jews are attacked.

    Start over.

    Even if it’s wrong if you assume the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths you will never be surprised and Jew’s behavior will make sense.

    In order to predict Jews behavior read the great book on Psychopaths by Hervey Cleckley, “The Mask of Sanity”. Here’s a chapter you should read. It’s about the psychopath Stanley. Who does all kinds of manic bullshit and spends all his time feeding people the most outrageous lies. Look at the astounding array of things he’s able to get away with. Maybe it will remind you of a certain tribe. New meme. “They’re pulling a Stanley”. The whole book is on the web and worth reading.

    I’ve noticed that several others have come to the same conclusion. It’s very simple to do so because the facts fit the case so well. If it were widely known that the Jews were a tribe of psychopaths their ability to do damage to our society would be be vastly curtailed. When they started spouting nonsense, as they frequently do, no would would pay a minutes attention to them.

    Those of us who study history, and the creation of the illegitimate rogue state, focus on the state that was and barely still is – Palestine. Why is that so hard for you to grasp?
     
    In your rigorous studies of history , did you learn that 78% of Mandatory Palestine is now occupied by The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan ??

    Did you know that Hashemites hail from Mecca , 860 miles south of Jordan and were only installed in Jordan by the British around the 1920s after they were deposed from Mecca by the House of Saud ??

    Making any protests at any Jordanian mosques this weekend ??

    Yes, I agree the Brits created the mess, as did the US, but who was pushing for those decisions and actions behind the men in power?

    We choose to focus on the Jewish Problem, the thing that has ruined the world, rather than the Jordanians as you suggest.

    WWI? Jews. WWII? Jews. Terrorism? Jews. False flags? Jews. Brutal bullying butchery? Jews. Torture, murder, rape? Jews. Victims? The boy who cried wolf?

    Notice that all of the above cute ‘traits’ are prerequisites to become Prime Minister in the war criminal concentration camp known as ‘Israel’.

    Since 9/11, the precursor to the invasion of the Middle East for the purpose of imposing the Yinon Plan and the Greater Israel (an illegitimate rogue state who has no borders or constitution), the world has only suffered. Their imperialist expansion has created the refugee crisis. They create chaos merely to gain more control and power

    Their parasitic existence needs to end. If Israel wants to sit at the table with the adults, it is time for them to be self-sustaining – not leeching an annual allowance from everyone else – by brow-beating anyone who questions their actions and motives, proselytizing their ‘chosen’ victim-hood in order to brainwash the goy world in our own institutions of education, media and entertainment (via Zio-propaganda), and through their true religion (Holocaust), it’s mandatorily-imposed fraud industry, Kosher Kickbacks, Rothchild usury and the undying thirst to spill innocent blood to increase their ‘worth’, just to name a few of the more egregious violations.

    If this alarms you, don’t worry, as soon as the pressure mounts for significant actions to finally take place against them, another false-flag attack will occur to draw the focus away from them for what they have always done, continue to do, and instead spin the narrative back to their eternal victim-hood at the hands of the evil Muslims – or whomever they choose the world focus on as their latest ‘enemy’, for their own gains.

    It’s a very deep and subversive web they have woven and, ironically, litigating to stop the debate, inquiries toward or to bring sanctions against the illegitimate rogue state, only reveals the depths of their disgusting detestable deceptions.

    Before you were claiming to work for the liberation of " PaLiestine" . Jordan is occupying 78% of "PaLiestine"................

    Just to put in context that you think Jews ruined the world. Lets see a few facts from 1948 when modern Israel was founded until today.

    The U.S. has a steeply progressive tax system under which Jews, almost surely in the top 1%, 5% and 10% of income earners, contribute the bulk of tax revenues, which in turn implies these groups subsidise a great many people in the U.S. Of course, non-Jews in these groups do the same, but I haven't seen any of them complain about Israel getting roughly a fifth of the 0.17% of GDP which the U.S. spends on ODA. In fact, in my experience, all non-jewish 1%ers are highly supportive of Israel.

    So the complainers are essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.

    thank you.

    top 1%, 5% and 10% of income earners, contribute the bulk of tax revenues, which in turn implies these groups subsidise a great many people in the U.S.

    (Luke 21:1-4)

    41And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

    I am not wrong in making these statements, merely facts which anyone can check. Stating those facts which I have clearly qualified with "I don't have a quarrel with it" in #163 should have been sufficient, but apparently, people read what they want to believe on this especially touchy subject.

    Tzedakah which is pure charity and Ma'aser which is tithing, are two key concepts in the Halacha and compels all Jews to abide by them, over and above any taxation by the secular state.

    Taxation is a tricky topic in this country, where the POTUS got a full pass, a decade's worth of it [$916m!] by all accounts when he used the tax code; yet who amongst my Christian brethren, supporters of Trump, going to bell that particular cat? Art, who professes to be a pious soul? I think not. Annamaria? You Iffen?

    Sure if he wasn’t a Jew.
     
    "Jew" can be an ethnic identity or a religious one. The same One Who orders me to treat a Jewish man as a fully enfranchised brother once he says the shahadah, also orders me to refuse him to marry my daughter until he says it. We do not get to pick and choose.
    "O you who believe! Enter into Islam completely; and follow not the footsteps of Shaytan; for he is to you an avowed enemy." (2:208)

    Brotherhood is not skin deep, it is a mutual recognition of rights and obligations - it must firmly be rooted in a belief shared by both that the both of them are equal before their Maker.

    that does not change the fact that group differences are real.
     
    Indeed. I can only speak for my tradition when I say: God is fully aware of the difference and takes credit for them Himself and He has made it clear...He. Does. Not. Care.

    "And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colours: verily in that are Signs for men of knowledge." (30:22)

    "O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is All-Knowing and All-Aware." (49:13)

    "Verily, God does not look at your figures nor at your faces but He looks at your hearts and your deeds." - reported in Muslim

    Our genetic differences will end once the bacteria has scraped the last tasty morsel off our carcasses and from inside our skulls - spiritual brotherhood is what will carry on after.

    Peace.

    The entire Zio controlled world went to war to defend Poland's reluctance to give back the city of Danzig to Germany.

    Or was this conflict, between Poland and Germany, a pretext for war. A war to protect Jewish interests in Europe?

    The Jews claim they have a right to Palestine because they conquered and settled the land thousands of years ago.

    The world went to war against Germany because they wanted territory returned to them that was taken away from them in WW 1.

    Why is it justified for Jews from around the world to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians to make room for Jews from New Jersey?

    Stating U.S. tax revenue incidence by brackets is now 'aggression' in your strange world. Transfer receivers are those who net-net receive more benefits than the amounts they pay in taxes. Roughly, anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient. That is the system, and I have no quarrel with it although you seem to think that stating a fact is playing on victimhood. So aggression, in the span of a sentence or two, becomes victimhood.

    The victim here is your objectivity.

    thank you.

    Roughly, anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient.

    Bankers individually and personally were not net recipients of government largesse. You may have an issue with bankers and hedge fund managers [shadow banking executives] earning outsized paychecks, but remember those monies were direct carve-outs from profits they earned after recovery. It isn't materially different from decrying the earnings of movie stars. This is a society which rewards success, agree with that concept or reject it.

    You'd have a better argument claiming a bank shareholder rescue by the government [which it did for a very good reason. Read about SIFIs]. But shareholding is very widely distributed: all retirements hold them! So, it isn't a flawed statement that tax-payer dollars went back into the pocket of the shareholding taxpayer, with the critical observation that the intersection of those two sets is almost equivalent to the first.

I don't see a problem with having a healthy concern about genetic differences (I even think it is extremely if you are a likely carrier of a genetic trait that can be detrimental to your children that you slectively choose a spouse based on that) - it's when they become paramount and trump everything else is where it annoys me (OMG - those people are 5 average IQ points less than me - how can I live with myself!). Maybe what I'm seeing is an extreme reaction to another extreme which makes people feel bad if they don't promote mixing. And honestly, I really only expect Muslims to prioritize our concerns differently - non-Muslims have their own framework and priorities.

    If it is a sin for Abrams, it is a sin for you, if it is okay for you, it is okay for Jews, not to mention WNs.
     
    1. Mr. Giraldi is awesome.
    2. Mr. Giraldi cannot define 'sin' - God has monopoly on that.

    I have no problem with Jews, Buddhists, Christians not marrying outside their faith. Our women aren't allowed to marry outside our faith and even Muslim men are restricted to only women from People of the Book. It would be hypocritical for us to complain.

    As far as WNs (say a White Christian who would rather have his daughter marry a materialist White instead of a practicing Black Christian) it doesn't bother me, they can choose whatever priorities they want. People get tripped up about this stuff - I don't. If you know of WNs who are Muslim, let me know - me and those brothers have to have a long talk.

    You can ask him for clarification.

    I don’t need no stinking clarification, I can read. :)

    it’s when they become paramount and trump everything else

    Trump! Trump! Trump! Whee Doggies!

    is where it annoys me (OMG – those people are 5 average IQ points less than me – how can I live with myself!).

    Which is why I agreed with you about the retching part. Which says nothing to the fact that many of our problems and solutions go straight through, or would if the problems were being addressed, genetic group differences.

    2. Mr. Giraldi cannot define ‘sin’ – God has monopoly on that.

    Now you know good and well that I wasn’t using sin in the religious sense. I am talking about people who whine about Jewish endogamy all the while pushing their own and ignoring other groups that practice the same. I’m not saying PG is one of those but many of his fellow travelers certainly are. In any case I think that it was odd that he made that one of his complaints against Abrams.

    Hey iffen,

    genetic group differences
     
    And this doesn't even take into account cultural and religious differences; I mean look across the border from Somalia to Ethiopia - Somalis and Oromo (many of them anyway) are Muslim and genetically close, but have their own unique way of running society. And you'll find some inter-marriage along shared borders and common dwelling grounds (just like you'll find bilingualism) and that, of course, makes sense.

    I think only Post-modern man could have come up with a system in which Somalis are being brought in to settle in Nebraska and thinking everything will be peaches. I cannot think of anyone else that thought this kind of population transfer was smart. Of course, Post-modern man is also the one that thinks all will be peaches by breaking down rule of law to get rid of them. Ah, Post-modern man - you cheeky fellow, what will you think of next?
    http://www.checkoutart.ca/tag/tom-estlack/

    If that level of population change happened, it's usually because the dominant group came riding in with swords and spears and you had no choice. And even then, it's all up in the air what happens next - Mongols were eventually culturally (including religion) and genetically absorbed into the same populations they conquered.

    I don't whine about other people's endogamy - ours is simply based on faith and not genetic differences - people can complain to us about it, but we'll just add it to the list. Other people can decide what they give priority to.

    Peace.
  175. I’m trying to follow you. Are you saying equity demands that these high earners should stop producing rather than (earn) take what the market offers for their efforts? Would the result, on net, be more or less value in the system?

    No – I am saying that the top is taking too big a slice of the pie.

    I am saying they are paying themselves to much – that their pay is greater than what they actually produce of value for the economy.

    p.s. The big earnings comes from buying and selling financial instruments which does little actual producing of goods and services.

    Yes, I agree the Brits created the mess, as did the US, but who was pushing for those decisions and actions behind the men in power?

    We choose to focus on the Jewish Problem, the thing that has ruined the world, rather than the Jordanians as you suggest.

    WWI? Jews. WWII? Jews. Terrorism? Jews. False flags? Jews. Brutal bullying butchery? Jews. Torture, murder, rape? Jews. Victims? The boy who cried wolf?

    Notice that all of the above cute 'traits' are prerequisites to become Prime Minister in the war criminal concentration camp known as 'Israel'.

    Since 9/11, the precursor to the invasion of the Middle East for the purpose of imposing the Yinon Plan and the Greater Israel (an illegitimate rogue state who has no borders or constitution), the world has only suffered. Their imperialist expansion has created the refugee crisis. They create chaos merely to gain more control and power

    Their parasitic existence needs to end. If Israel wants to sit at the table with the adults, it is time for them to be self-sustaining - not leeching an annual allowance from everyone else - by brow-beating anyone who questions their actions and motives, proselytizing their 'chosen' victim-hood in order to brainwash the goy world in our own institutions of education, media and entertainment (via Zio-propaganda), and through their true religion (Holocaust), it's mandatorily-imposed fraud industry, Kosher Kickbacks, Rothchild usury and the undying thirst to spill innocent blood to increase their 'worth', just to name a few of the more egregious violations.

    If this alarms you, don't worry, as soon as the pressure mounts for significant actions to finally take place against them, another false-flag attack will occur to draw the focus away from them for what they have always done, continue to do, and instead spin the narrative back to their eternal victim-hood at the hands of the evil Muslims - or whomever they choose the world focus on as their latest 'enemy', for their own gains.

    It's a very deep and subversive web they have woven and, ironically, litigating to stop the debate, inquiries toward or to bring sanctions against the illegitimate rogue state, only reveals the depths of their disgusting detestable deceptions.

    We choose to focus on the Jewish Problem, the thing that has ruined the world, rather than the Jordanians as you suggest.

    You're right all of humanity is a killing machine. Jews are no worse or better than others.

    But here's the difference. Power matters, and Jews are immensely powerful, so what Jews do get more attention. Jews can get more sympathy but also more criticism.

    Another thing. Most peoples around the world mind their own business. In contrast, Jews have used Holocaust to turn themselves into saints of all time for all people. So, people notice the hypocrisy between Jewish moral claims and Jewish deeds.

    Also, because Jews were part of other nations for so long, it's not easy to pinpoint which group was most responsible for mass killings. Jews played a significant role in the USSR, so their hands were stained with blood. But other ethnic groups took part in the killing too.

    And if Jews were crucial in creating communism, then some might argue that communism all over the world can be traced back to the poison idea of the Jews. While we can't blame Jews for what Mao and Pol Pot did, the 'evil' idea did come from Marx and was spread around the world by Jewish intellectuals and activists.

    Even though Mao's victory didn't owe to Jews, he had many Jewish admirers.

    http://jewishjournal.com/news/world/179731/

    Ironically, this Jewish-Chinese connection under the rubric of communism later morphed into ties under capitalist-globalism.

    And consider recent wars in Middle East. We can blame the US, but which group was instrumental in directing US foreign policy under Clinton, Bush II, and Obama? So, if any group in the US is responsible for mass destruction in the Middle East, it is Jews even though not only them.

    While your show of stats show that any people can be murderous, Jews didn't use this logic in the case of South AFrica. After all, whites in South AFrica far fewer blacks than black dictatorships did all over Africa. But White Rule was targeted for destruction by Jews?

    Roughly, anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient.
     
    You forgot the .01% on the other end of the scale.

    You think the bankers, in general, are not net recipients? How about the ones that get bailed out?

    Bankers individually and personally were not net recipients of government largesse. You may have an issue with bankers and hedge fund managers [shadow banking executives] earning outsized paychecks, but remember those monies were direct carve-outs from profits they earned after recovery. It isn’t materially different from decrying the earnings of movie stars. This is a society which rewards success, agree with that concept or reject it.

    You’d have a better argument claiming a bank shareholder rescue by the government [which it did for a very good reason. Read about SIFIs]. But shareholding is very widely distributed: all retirements hold them! So, it isn’t a flawed statement that tax-payer dollars went back into the pocket of the shareholding taxpayer, with the critical observation that the intersection of those two sets is almost equivalent to the first.

    Yes that is true that black dictatorships and Arab Muslim dictatorships in Africa caused many hundreds of times more damage and murder in Africa than did the white regimes in South Africa, Rhodesia, North Rhodesia , Angola and Mozambique. However the white rule was not targeted for destruction by Jews . Whites , DeKlerk and Co. destroyed themselves , much as Europe is destroying itself now . I have family members that served in the South African Army in the 70s and 80s and non supported the overthrow of RSA and handing over to the Bantu invaders. You over exaggerate Jewish power and also Jewish desire to control other whites. Any white country that self destructs and refuses to procreate is to blame for their own destruction. Whites doing the most simple and natural action possible ( procreating and having families ) would have prevented all that is happening to them and more .

  181. Thank you for proving my point. Like a child in a temper-tantrum, you fly into a rage and start the insults to try to dissuade the cognitive dissonance in your mind when faced with absolute truth, as opposed to Zionist propaganda, which is based in myth.

    WWI. The Brits were preparing to agree to Germany’s peace accord. It was the Jews (Zionists), who convinced the Brits they could draw the Americans into the war assuring a win. The prize? The Rothchild written Balfour Declaration. (Under the ridiculous sanctions, and influence of the Zionists, Germany became the world’s ghetto and sin capital. )

    1933. The Zionist Jews declared war on Germany.

    WWII. The “Final Solution” was getting Hitler to agree to give them a place to call home. I only wish they chose Madagascar, which was one of their earlier proposals. The Atheist Jews decided to go for the “Holy Land” as the “Chosen” race to gain favor from the Christian Goy (sheep).

    Over 500 villages burned as the butcherers ransacked Palestine and ethnically cleansed over 700,000 native Palestinians. Let’s not forget they blew up some Jews on a ship docked in Haifa – to blame the Brits – and killed some brown Jews, but there is no one safe under the ultimate goals of the tribe.

    After the war?

    11 million German women brutally raped, beaten and murdered. 13 million Germans displaced, with their homes, land, possessions and dignity stolen from them. 2 million German men starved to death in the Eisenhower death camps – wide open to the elements and nothing more than a pen for cattle (Like Palestine). Are you beginning to see the pattern?

    The reparations scam. There’s currently almost 2 million “survivors” on the dole. LOL! Based on that, I guess there were at least 15 million in the German work camps in the early ’40′s.

    USS Liberty. False Flag whose sole purpose was to bring the US into a war against Egypt to capture Jerusalem – the ultimate goal of the 1967 warring Jews. 9/11 to bring the US into a conflict with the entire Middle East for Israel’s sole gain. Are you starting to see the pattern? Schoolyard tricks to get others to do your bidding for you.

If I recall correctly, the Hanbali school actually encourages distant marriage for the sake of healthy children.

    I don't think it meaningful that Harris, Hitchens, et al. lack understanding of Islam; that is, I doubt this lack much affects their dislike; if they understood it better they would still oppose it, as they oppose Christianity and pretty much any system other than their own, of which, I would argue, since it is not itself consistent, they also lack understanding.

    It's far more probable that the opinions of liberal Islamophiles (yay! Mixed Arabic and Greek roots!) are informed by their lack of understanding, since what they dislike in their own society and religion is also present in Islamic society and religious practice. Ironically, about a hundred years ago, when liberals wanted to bring secularism and enlightenment to the Muslim world, and looked upon Islam as a backward superstition (as, I think, many still do, in private), their own beliefs were much closer to the Muslim than at present.

    Stating U.S. tax revenue incidence by brackets is now 'aggression' in your strange world. Transfer receivers are those who net-net receive more benefits than the amounts they pay in taxes. Roughly, anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient. That is the system, and I have no quarrel with it although you seem to think that stating a fact is playing on victimhood. So aggression, in the span of a sentence or two, becomes victimhood.

    The victim here is your objectivity.

    thank you.

    The complete quote of your post was ” “…essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.” But you were blind to the second half of your own phrase that was about the perennial Jewish victims of jealousy. Complex extinction, no less.

    “Anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient.”
    Is this a pean to the financial sector dominated by the 1%-ers? Here is an excellent article by Michael Hudson (a real authority on economics), which explains the roots and consequences of our financialized economy. Brace yourself: “How Bankers Became the Top Exploiters of the Economy” http://www.counterpunch.org/2017/03/15/how-bankers-became-the-top-exploiters-of-the-economy/
    “If you look at the economic framework in terms of assets and debt, you find that the 1% makes its money by holding the 99% in debt. Or at least, you could say that the 5% make its money by holding the 95% in debt…. Finance capitalism is overwhelming industrial capitalism… it is retrogressing back to neo-serfdom and neo-feudalism.
    …if you’re looking at how wealth is accumulated, people think of it in the way textbooks describe: as earning income and saving it up to get rich. That’s all most wage earners can do. But that’s not how it happens at the top of the pyramid. Most wealth takes the form of capital gains. They’re inflated on credit, so it’s really asset price inflation that’s financed by debt leverage. Most of the gains end up being paid out as interest, so the bankers – that is, the bank owners and bondholders – end up with most of the rise in wealth. …Most money is made by financial engineering, not by industrial engineering. It’s made by what the classical economists called unearned income.”

    41And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
     

    OT, Sam, so I will just say that I think that you are wrong on more than one level here.

    I don't want to come down on you for being a free-booting capitalist when the Jew-hating sharks are circling and smelling blood.

    [OT, Sam, so I will just say that I think that you are wrong on more than one level here]

    I am not wrong in making these statements, merely facts which anyone can check. Stating those facts which I have clearly qualified with “I don’t have a quarrel with it” in #163 should have been sufficient, but apparently, people read what they want to believe on this especially touchy subject.

    Tzedakah which is pure charity and Ma’aser which is tithing, are two key concepts in the Halacha and compels all Jews to abide by them, over and above any taxation by the secular state.

    Taxation is a tricky topic in this country, where the POTUS got a full pass, a decade’s worth of it [$916m!] by all accounts when he used the tax code; yet who amongst my Christian brethren, supporters of Trump, going to bell that particular cat? Art, who professes to be a pious soul? I think not. Annamaria? You Iffen?

    That's all very well, long live Israel, but I wish the diaspora Jews in western countries stopped promoting immigration of Muslims, Africans, Mexicans and Others to all nations.

    Maybe Europeans and Americans should send both their Jews and Muslims back to the Middle East to fight it out. And may the best win.

    they come over,get a new state of mind,go back and change the state of mind where they originated from.this is called MULTI CULTURALISM.

    thats the secret you have to send them back.SEND THEM BACK. after 2 generations.

    You're right all of humanity is a killing machine. Jews are no worse or better than others.

    But here's the difference. Power matters, and Jews are immensely powerful, so what Jews do get more attention. Jews can get more sympathy but also more criticism.

    Another thing. Most peoples around the world mind their own business. In contrast, Jews have used Holocaust to turn themselves into saints of all time for all people. So, people notice the hypocrisy between Jewish moral claims and Jewish deeds.

    Also, because Jews were part of other nations for so long, it's not easy to pinpoint which group was most responsible for mass killings. Jews played a significant role in the USSR, so their hands were stained with blood. But other ethnic groups took part in the killing too.

    And if Jews were crucial in creating communism, then some might argue that communism all over the world can be traced back to the poison idea of the Jews. While we can't blame Jews for what Mao and Pol Pot did, the 'evil' idea did come from Marx and was spread around the world by Jewish intellectuals and activists.

    Even though Mao's victory didn't owe to Jews, he had many Jewish admirers.

    http://jewishjournal.com/news/world/179731/

    Ironically, this Jewish-Chinese connection under the rubric of communism later morphed into ties under capitalist-globalism.

    And consider recent wars in Middle East. We can blame the US, but which group was instrumental in directing US foreign policy under Clinton, Bush II, and Obama? So, if any group in the US is responsible for mass destruction in the Middle East, it is Jews even though not only them.

    While your show of stats show that any people can be murderous, Jews didn't use this logic in the case of South AFrica. After all, whites in South AFrica far fewer blacks than black dictatorships did all over Africa. But White Rule was targeted for destruction by Jews?
    Why?

    You’re right all of humanity is a killing machine. Jews are no worse or better than others.

    [MORE]

    Looks like Jews are better than plenty of others. A total of only 24,000 Palestinians killed in an over 50 year period as opposed to multiple cases of non Jews and especially Muslims killing by the millions over 5 or 10 year periods . To wit , and this is a just a few :
    Mao ( atheist ) great leap forward -40 Million killed
    Cambodian genocide ( Buddhist) —2 million killed
    Indonesian ( muslim) occupation of Papua -500,000 killed
    Russian ( Chirsitan ) occupation of Afghanistan —1+ million killed
    Russian ( Christian ) occupation of Chechnya —150,000 killed
    Turkish ( Muslim) occupation of Kurdistan —78,000 killed
    Rwanda ( Christian / Tribal ) genocide —1 million + killed
    Chinese ( atheist ) occupation and genocide of Tibet- 1.3 million killed
    Moroccan ( muslim ) occupation of Western Sahara –38,000 killed
    Sudanese ( muslim ) occupation of South Sudan —2 million killed
    Sudanese ( muslim ) occupation of Darfur –800,000 killed
    Hafez Assad( muslim ) war crimes in Hama—–30,000 killed in one month
    Bashar Assad ( muslim ) war crimes in Syria—–400,000 killed
    ISIS ( muslim) war crimes in Iraq and Syria—–150,000 killed
    911 ( muslim ) 3000+ killed in 1 day
    Boko Haram ( muslim ) insurgency —–20,000 killed over past 10 years
    Nigerian ( muslim ) occupation of Biafra —-1 million + civilians killed
    Israel / PaLiestinian conflict ———24,000 killed

    While your show of stats show that any people can be murderous, Jews didn’t use this logic in the case of South AFrica. After all, whites in South AFrica far fewer blacks than black dictatorships did all over Africa. But White Rule was targeted for destruction by Jews?
    Why?

    Yes that is true that black dictatorships and Arab Muslim dictatorships in Africa caused many hundreds of times more damage and murder in Africa than did the white regimes in South Africa, Rhodesia, North Rhodesia , Angola and Mozambique. However the white rule was not targeted for destruction by Jews . Whites , DeKlerk and Co. destroyed themselves , much as Europe is destroying itself now . I have family members that served in the South African Army in the 70s and 80s and non supported the overthrow of RSA and handing over to the Bantu invaders. You over exaggerate Jewish power and also Jewish desire to control other whites. Any white country that self destructs and refuses to procreate is to blame for their own destruction. Whites doing the most simple and natural action possible ( procreating and having families ) would have prevented all that is happening to them and more .

  189. Bankers individually and personally were not net recipients of government largesse.

    In my book, if taxpayer dollars are used to bail out failing corporations, then the executives who run/own them and get paid despite the bankruptcies ARE in fact net recipients of government largess as much so as “contractors” who line up at the pork trough.

    This is a society which rewards success, agree with that concept or reject it.

    If success is rewarded, then why are you bellyaching about people on the lower end of the scale? They’re “successful” in picking your pockets too. And they’re gettting rewarded.

    What makes you think you can sell such glib, simplistic trash as that? Success? This society rewards successful theft most of all. Do you really think DC is full of politicians just itching to “do good” for society?

    I’ll never believe that you’re not bright enough to laugh at such a claim, so just can it. Don’t even try to make the argument. If you really believe it, then there is no use in my trying to reason with you. Agree with that concept or reject it. I couldn’t care less.

    Here, for your amusement, is one tiny example of how your tax dollars reward people for their “Success.” Please note that we only know this because they got caught. I bet for every 1 that gets caught, 10,000 go free.

    The complete quote of your post was " “…essentially net-transfer receivers, jealous of jewish success.” But you were blind to the second half of your own phrase that was about the perennial Jewish victims of jealousy. Complex extinction, no less.

    "Anyone below the top 10% bracket qualifies as a net recipient."
    Is this a pean to the financial sector dominated by the 1%-ers? Here is an excellent article by Michael Hudson (a real authority on economics), which explains the roots and consequences of our financialized economy. Brace yourself: "How Bankers Became the Top Exploiters of the Economy" http://www.counterpunch.org/2017/03/15/how-bankers-became-the-top-exploiters-of-the-economy/
    "If you look at the economic framework in terms of assets and debt, you find that the 1% makes its money by holding the 99% in debt. Or at least, you could say that the 5% make its money by holding the 95% in debt.... Finance capitalism is overwhelming industrial capitalism... it is retrogressing back to neo-serfdom and neo-feudalism.
    …if you’re looking at how wealth is accumulated, people think of it in the way textbooks describe: as earning income and saving it up to get rich. That’s all most wage earners can do. But that’s not how it happens at the top of the pyramid. Most wealth takes the form of capital gains. They’re inflated on credit, so it’s really asset price inflation that’s financed by debt leverage. Most of the gains end up being paid out as interest, so the bankers – that is, the bank owners and bondholders – end up with most of the rise in wealth. ...Most money is made by financial engineering, not by industrial engineering. It’s made by what the classical economists called unearned income."

    LOL. I am fine with people being jealous, it’s a human trait. I am jealous of your ability to flit hither and thither pulling brilliant quotes and passages, then ascribing them to the wrong author, while corresponding directly with said authors. I couldn’t do it if I tried. Do you feel victimised on account of my jealousy for your talent?

    For a clever fellow convinced he unearthed a tautology, the mystery deepens as to why on earth he ran with the same 'tautology' in his responses which followed; not once but at least thrice.

    The reason of course is, it isn't a tautology; merely your attempt to appear clever with the predictable end-result of appearing too clever by half.

    Still, I refuse to believe that you are not bright enough to not know that success and reward are but occasional fellow travellers. I have many friends, physicists, linguists, economists etc. who despite their academic successes weren't favoured by monetary reward - and it was monetary reward we spoke of earlier, not the nobler variety which only pleases the immortal soul, wasn't it?

  197. James Petras’ The Power of the Israel in the United States (2006) is available in its entirety here.

    Some highlights:

    p13
    former President Ariel Sharon once boasted, regarding his influence over President Bush
    “We have the US under our control”.

    p13
    J.J. Goldberg in his book, Jewish Power Inside the Jewish Establishment based on data in the early, 1990′s, noted that 45 percent of the fundraising for the Democratic Party and 25 percent of the funding for the Republicans came from Jewish-funded Political Action Committees (PACs).

    A more recent survey by Richard Cohen of the Washington Post shows higher figures: 60 percent of Democratic financing comes from Jewish pro-Israel PACs and 35 percent of the Republican fundraising.
    No single other lobby including Big Pharma, Big Oil and Agro-business plays such a dominant financial role in party funding.

    p14
    The basis of the [Jewish] Lobby’s PAC power is rooted in the high proportion of Jewish families among the wealthiest families in the United States. According to Forbes, 25 to 30 percent of US multi-millionaires and billionaires are Jewish. If we add the contributions to the Lobby by Jewish-Canadian billionaires with assets worth over 30 percent of the Canadian Stock Market, we can realize the scope and depth of the Lobby’s power to dictate Middle East policy to Congress and the Executive.

    p15
    A poll in Israel, published by the liberal newspaper Haaretz showed that 68 percent of Israeli Jews reject living near an Arab. Surveys show repeatedly that nearly half of Israeli Jews favor the forced emigration of Arabs from Palestine.

    p36
    The power of Israel is based on that of the Diaspora, the highly structured and politically and economically powerful Jewish networks which have direct and indirect access to the centers of power and propaganda in the most powerful imperial country in the world. Tribute is exacted via the influence of these ‘internal colonialists” who operate at the level of mass media opinion makers and via Congress and the Presidency. Close to 60 percent of Democratic Party funding and 35 percent of Republican Party funding comes from pro-Israeli Jews.

    p39
    Who Finances the State of Israel?

    The question of who is financing the Israeli state is basic because Israel as we know it today is not a viable state without massive external support. As the July 2004 updated Congressional Research Service Issue Brief for Congress titled “Israel: U.S. Foreign Assistance” points out in its opening statement: “Israelis not economically self-sufficient, and relies on foreign assistance and borrowing to maintain its economy. 1126 Despite what might seem an insurmountable obstacle not just to Israel’s prosperity, but to its sustainability, the country has nonetheless done rather well. Billions of dollars are raised from a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish institutions to sustain the Israeli war machine, its policy of generous subsidies for Jews enticed to settle in colonies in the Occupied Territories and in Israel-sufficient to place the country as the world’s 28th highest in living standards for Israel’s Jewish citizens.

    Without external aid Israel’s economy would require severe cutbacks in living standards and working conditions, leading to the likely flight of most Israeli professionals, businessmen, and recent overseas immigrants. The Israeli military budget would be reduced and Israel would be obligated to reduce its military interventions in the Arab East and the Occupied Territories. Israel would cease being a rentier state living on overseas subsidies and would be obligated to engage in productive activity-a return to farming, manufacture and services minus the exploitation of low paid Asian maids, imported Eastern European farm workers, and Palestinian construction laborers.

    Europe continues to privilege the importation of Israeli exports and financial services, despite overt and malicious attacks by leaders of both Israeli parties. Prominent Jewish organizations linked to major parties in France and England have muted any efforts to use the “trade card” to pressure Israel to accept European Union or United Nations mediation. European trade and financial ties to Israel however are not the basic prop for the Israeli war machine. The principle basis for long-term, large-scale financial support is found in the US, among public and private institutions.

    In the United States there are essentially four basic sources of financial, ideological and political support for the Israeli rentier economy:

    1. Wealthy Jewish contributors and powerful disciplined fund-raising organizations.

    2. The US government-both Congress and the Presidency.

    3. The mass media, particularly the New York Times,
    Hollywood, and the major television networks.

    4. The trade union bosses and the heads of pension funds.

    There is substantial overlap in these four institutional configurations. For example, Jewish supporters in the Israeli lobby work closely with Congressional leaders to secure long-term, large-scale US military and economic aid for Israel. Most of the mass media and a few trade unions are influenced by unconditional supporters of the Israeli war machine. Pro-Israel Jews are disproportionately represented in the financial, political, professional, academic, real estate, insurance and mass media sectors of the American economy. While Jews are a minority in each and every one of these categories, their disproportionate power and influence stems from the fact that they function collectively: they are organized, active, and concentrate on a single issue-US policy in the Middle East, and specifically in securing Washington’s massive, unconditional, and continuing military, political and financial support for Israel. Operating from their strategic positions in the power structure, they are able to influence policy and censor any dissident commentators or views from circulating freely in the communications and political system.

    In the political sphere, pro-Israeli politicians and powerful Jewish organizations have joined forces with (and even animate)29 pro-Israel ultra rightwing mass-based Christian fundamentalist powerful political leaders tied to the military-industrial complex, such as Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld and Vice President Cheney. Israel’s unconditional support of Washington’s Cold War and subsequent anti-terrorist military offensive has further strengthened ideological and military ties between US rightwing political leaders, pro-Israeli politicians and the leaders of the leading Jewish organizations. The politics of Washington’s new imperialism coincides splendidly with the Sharon-Olmert conquest and destruction of the Occupied Territories.

    Wealthy and organized Jewish organizations, compliant Congressional representatives and rightwing fundamentalist organizations are not the only financial supporters of Israel. US taxpayers have been funding the Israeli war machine with over $3 billion a year of direct assistance for over 35 years (now totaling over $100 billion and continuing to mount).

    Oh, the maltreatment of the Palestinian. The English resettled their own who were kicked from Ireland in 1920. Germany absorbed their diaspora which was expelled from other countries in the late 1940s (look up Benes Doctrine). Poland absorbed Poles from the east when it was shifted over. Greece and Turkey mutually did the same in the great migration after WW I, and India and Pakistan likewise after Partition. No one, not Jordan, not Lebanon, Syria, not the Mother Ship Saudi Arabia no one wants the Palestinian. Why not? Their misery provides a p.r. weapon and permanent guerrilla force with which to fight Israel. Oh, wasn’t Jordan the original 2 state solution in 1948? Please tell me the difference between a Jordanian and a Palestinian.
     
    aren't all those examples between 2 sovereign states/powers? just a reshuffling of their people who crossed borders in the past. which is entirely different than a group of people backed by the super power that won WWII, kicking an entire people from their homes and land.

    you don't care? yay? what does that have to do with anything? I bet you would care when someone else forces you off of your home and land at gun point. never thought someone would attempt to make being selfish and uncaring sound righteous. bravo for that at least.

    My point was that the dirty rotten shame of it is that the Palestinians’ own cousin Arabs lock them out and put them into permanent squalor. Amazing how the Gulf State Arab Muslims can hire help from every other country on earth and pay them well but can’t move in a chunk of Palestinians, that the kafir halfway across the world worries more than they do.

    And the reshuffling of other peoples was entirely different because 1) the ME sovereign states told their own fellow Arabs to flee their homeland so the surrounding Arabs could have an easier time of pushing Israel into the sea, then selfishly and uncaringly left them in camps for 60 years as a big middle finger to them, and 2) in the other migrations, those people many times had a better claim on their old lands than Palestinians had. Greeks kicked out by the Young Turks were in Asia Minor since the Classical Era. Germans settled parts of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia since when the Goths came down at the end of Rome. The subcontinent’s Hindus and Muslims finding themselves on the wrong side of a new border left lands they probably lived in since 3000 b.c. You seem to make light of the other times people left their ancestral lands. I’m sure the Greeks from Smyrna or Constantinople felt their loss no less.

    former President Ariel Sharon once boasted, regarding his influence over President Bush
    "We have the US under our control".

    p13
    J.J. Goldberg in his book, Jewish Power Inside the Jewish Establishment based on data in the early, 1990's, noted that 45 percent of the fundraising for the Democratic Party and 25 percent of the funding for the Republicans came from Jewish-funded Political Action Committees (PACs).

    A more recent survey by Richard Cohen of the Washington Post shows higher figures: 60 percent of Democratic financing comes from Jewish pro-Israel PACs and 35 percent of the Republican fundraising.
    No single other lobby including Big Pharma, Big Oil and Agro-business plays such a dominant financial role in party funding.

    p14
    The basis of the [Jewish] Lobby's PAC power is rooted in the high proportion of Jewish families among the wealthiest families in the United States. According to Forbes, 25 to 30 percent of US multi-millionaires and billionaires are Jewish. If we add the contributions to the Lobby by Jewish-Canadian billionaires with assets worth over 30 percent of the Canadian Stock Market, we can realize the scope and depth of the Lobby's power to dictate Middle East policy to Congress and the Executive.

    p15
    A poll in Israel, published by the liberal newspaper Haaretz showed that 68 percent of Israeli Jews reject living near an Arab. Surveys show repeatedly that nearly half of Israeli Jews favor the forced emigration of Arabs from Palestine.

    p36
    The power of Israel is based on that of the Diaspora, the highly structured and politically and economically powerful Jewish networks which have direct and indirect access to the centers of power and propaganda in the most powerful imperial country in the world. Tribute is exacted via the influence of these 'internal colonialists" who operate at the level of mass media opinion makers and via Congress and the Presidency. Close to 60 percent of Democratic Party funding and 35 percent of Republican Party funding comes from pro-Israeli Jews.

    p39
    Who Finances the State of Israel?

    The question of who is financing the Israeli state is basic because Israel as we know it today is not a viable state without massive external support. As the July 2004 updated Congressional Research Service Issue Brief for Congress titled "Israel: U.S. Foreign Assistance" points out in its opening statement: "Israelis not economically self-sufficient, and relies on foreign assistance and borrowing to maintain its economy. 1126 Despite what might seem an insurmountable obstacle not just to Israel's prosperity, but to its sustainability, the country has nonetheless done rather well. Billions of dollars are raised from a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish institutions to sustain the Israeli war machine, its policy of generous subsidies for Jews enticed to settle in colonies in the Occupied Territories and in Israel-sufficient to place the country as the world's 28th highest in living standards for Israel's Jewish citizens.

    Without external aid Israel's economy would require severe cutbacks in living standards and working conditions, leading to the likely flight of most Israeli professionals, businessmen, and recent overseas immigrants. The Israeli military budget would be reduced and Israel would be obligated to reduce its military interventions in the Arab East and the Occupied Territories. Israel would cease being a rentier state living on overseas subsidies and would be obligated to engage in productive activity-a return to farming, manufacture and services minus the exploitation of low paid Asian maids, imported Eastern European farm workers, and Palestinian construction laborers.

    Europe continues to privilege the importation of Israeli exports and financial services, despite overt and malicious attacks by leaders of both Israeli parties. Prominent Jewish organizations linked to major parties in France and England have muted any efforts to use the "trade card" to pressure Israel to accept European Union or United Nations mediation. European trade and financial ties to Israel however are not the basic prop for the Israeli war machine. The principle basis for long-term, large-scale financial support is found in the US, among public and private institutions.

    In the United States there are essentially four basic sources of financial, ideological and political support for the Israeli rentier economy:

    1. Wealthy Jewish contributors and powerful disciplined fund-raising organizations.

    2. The US government-both Congress and the Presidency.

    3. The mass media, particularly the New York Times,
    Hollywood, and the major television networks.

    4. The trade union bosses and the heads of pension funds.

    There is substantial overlap in these four institutional configurations. For example, Jewish supporters in the Israeli lobby work closely with Congressional leaders to secure long-term, large-scale US military and economic aid for Israel. Most of the mass media and a few trade unions are influenced by unconditional supporters of the Israeli war machine. Pro-Israel Jews are disproportionately represented in the financial, political, professional, academic, real estate, insurance and mass media sectors of the American economy. While Jews are a minority in each and every one of these categories, their disproportionate power and influence stems from the fact that they function collectively: they are organized, active, and concentrate on a single issue-US policy in the Middle East, and specifically in securing Washington's massive, unconditional, and continuing military, political and financial support for Israel. Operating from their strategic positions in the power structure, they are able to influence policy and censor any dissident commentators or views from circulating freely in the communications and political system.

    In the political sphere, pro-Israeli politicians and powerful Jewish organizations have joined forces with (and even animate)29 pro-Israel ultra rightwing mass-based Christian fundamentalist powerful political leaders tied to the military-industrial complex, such as Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld and Vice President Cheney. Israel's unconditional support of Washington's Cold War and subsequent anti-terrorist military offensive has further strengthened ideological and military ties between US rightwing political leaders, pro-Israeli politicians and the leaders of the leading Jewish organizations. The politics of Washington's new imperialism coincides splendidly with the Sharon-Olmert conquest and destruction of the Occupied Territories.

    Wealthy and organized Jewish organizations, compliant Congressional representatives and rightwing fundamentalist organizations are not the only financial supporters of Israel. US taxpayers have been funding the Israeli war machine with over $3 billion a year of direct assistance for over 35 years (now totaling over $100 billion and continuing to mount).

    thank you for the postcards…..have you seen the movie American Honey…..a classic.

    here are a few more mistakes from the petras book

    “Sadly, among many basic errors in this poorly edited book, AIPAC is misidentified as “American Israel Political Action Committee” — AIPAC in fact is not a political action committee per se, but an umbrella funding source for a variety of PACs — and it’s weirdly implied that AIPAC is tax-exempt, which as an overtly political lobby of course it’s not (although the related American Israel Education Fund is).”

    “A number of prominent names are misspelled, most egregiously former CIA director George Tenet who’s rendered as “Tenant;” a nonexistent “Union of Reform Jews” is mentioned, possibly a reference to the Union for Reform Judaism, but it’s impossible to tell for sure.”

    here is the link.takes the petras book apart quite effectively

    https://www.solidarity-us.org/node/530

    whats more you use the petras book to bolster your own dubious claims

    “For the simple reason that it illustrates just how far astray one might go in search of answers in these troubled and dangerous times, The Power of Israel in the United States should be examined as a case study of what happens when even a prominent left intellectual abandons a clear class-based, anti-imperialist understanding of politics.”

    Trump! Trump! Trump! Whee Doggies!

    is where it annoys me (OMG – those people are 5 average IQ points less than me – how can I live with myself!).

    Which is why I agreed with you about the retching part. Which says nothing to the fact that many of our problems and solutions go straight through, or would if the problems were being addressed, genetic group differences.

    2. Mr. Giraldi cannot define ‘sin’ – God has monopoly on that.

    Now you know good and well that I wasn’t using sin in the religious sense. I am talking about people who whine about Jewish endogamy all the while pushing their own and ignoring other groups that practice the same. I’m not saying PG is one of those but many of his fellow travelers certainly are. In any case I think that it was odd that he made that one of his complaints against Abrams.

    Hey iffen,

    genetic group differences

    And this doesn’t even take into account cultural and religious differences; I mean look across the border from Somalia to Ethiopia – Somalis and Oromo (many of them anyway) are Muslim and genetically close, but have their own unique way of running society. And you’ll find some inter-marriage along shared borders and common dwelling grounds (just like you’ll find bilingualism) and that, of course, makes sense.

    I think only Post-modern man could have come up with a system in which Somalis are being brought in to settle in Nebraska and thinking everything will be peaches. I cannot think of anyone else that thought this kind of population transfer was smart. Of course, Post-modern man is also the one that thinks all will be peaches by breaking down rule of law to get rid of them. Ah, Post-modern man – you cheeky fellow, what will you think of next?

    http://www.checkoutart.ca/tag/tom-estlack/

    If that level of population change happened, it’s usually because the dominant group came riding in with swords and spears and you had no choice. And even then, it’s all up in the air what happens next – Mongols were eventually culturally (including religion) and genetically absorbed into the same populations they conquered.

    I don’t whine about other people’s endogamy – ours is simply based on faith and not genetic differences – people can complain to us about it, but we’ll just add it to the list. Other people can decide what they give priority to.

    Quite. Endogamy is endogamy. I know that you feel justified in carving out an exception for religious reasons. I felt the same way when I was a believer. The fact is that some characteristics are supposed to be off limits in enlightened liberalism, race or religion, for example. (Race or religion, we got dem Jews no matter which way they go.) :)

    Bankers individually and personally were not net recipients of government largesse.

     

    In my book, if taxpayer dollars are used to bail out failing corporations, then the executives who run/own them and get paid despite the bankruptcies ARE in fact net recipients of government largess as much so as "contractors" who line up at the pork trough.

    This is a society which rewards success, agree with that concept or reject it.
     
    If success is rewarded, then why are you bellyaching about people on the lower end of the scale? They're "successful" in picking your pockets too. And they're gettting rewarded.

    What makes you think you can sell such glib, simplistic trash as that? Success? This society rewards successful theft most of all. Do you really think DC is full of politicians just itching to "do good" for society?

    I'll never believe that you're not bright enough to laugh at such a claim, so just can it. Don't even try to make the argument. If you really believe it, then there is no use in my trying to reason with you. Agree with that concept or reject it. I couldn't care less.

    Here, for your amusement, is one tiny example of how your tax dollars reward people for their "Success." Please note that we only know this because they got caught. I bet for every 1 that gets caught, 10,000 go free.

    Anna, you should feel proud that Sammy takes time out from making shekels to answer you!! ;)

    You know, as I was sitting on the biff, I was thinking about him and his comment above, where he sez that this is a society that rewards success. Well, speaking of words, I couldn't quite come with the right word to describe his really sappy observation, until I suddenly felt a good deal of relief (both ways) and it hit me what was wrong.

    Simply, he uttered a tautology. I guess he'd say I had a successful success. Or an enlightened enlightenment!

    Sometimes I come here only for the laughs!

    Anyway, never forget that this society rewards success! ;)

    Simply, he uttered a tautology. I guess he’d say I had a successful success. Or an enlightened enlightenment!

    For a clever fellow convinced he unearthed a tautology, the mystery deepens as to why on earth he ran with the same ‘tautology’ in his responses which followed; not once but at least thrice.

    The reason of course is, it isn’t a tautology; merely your attempt to appear clever with the predictable end-result of appearing too clever by half.

    Still, I refuse to believe that you are not bright enough to not know that success and reward are but occasional fellow travellers. I have many friends, physicists, linguists, economists etc. who despite their academic successes weren’t favoured by monetary reward – and it was monetary reward we spoke of earlier, not the nobler variety which only pleases the immortal soul, wasn’t it?

    I come here for the laughs as well, and speaking of words which describe the circumstances I do have the mot juste: hypocrisy.

    Hey Sam,

    I was agreeing with a principle from JS - to be honest I didn't see the previous part of the exchange, I didn't know that was or was not directed to you since there was no '@' to follow up the chain - lot's of stuff going on in this thread so I'm having a tough time keeping up with it all.

    I was on a flight yesterday and realized how little human beings are and how little our material accomplishments. From that distance, a marching army of a 100 thousand can barely be seen, smaller than ants - yet how often has an army less than that managed to changed history. Passed over the Grand Canyon and the Rockies - now that was stunning! Our material accomplishments are less impressive when seen from space. Specks on a floating speck, spinning around a floating speck mired in a cloud of glittering specks among similar other clouds. Our cities and towers or atom bombs impressive? The hubris is comedic. A scholar I was listening to recently mentioned that none of us thinks twice about the millions of bacteria we destroy every day washing our hands - and yet, materially we share a closer form of existence than we do with our mutual Maker. Ah, but the soul - in that lies the entire locus of Divine attention.

    This is unrelated to the exchange - well, technically it's related to everything - but thought I'd share and that you would appreciate it.

    I don’t think it meaningful that Harris, Hitchens, et al. lack understanding of Islam; that is, I doubt this lack much affects their dislike; if they understood it better they would still oppose it, as they oppose Christianity and pretty much any system other than their own, of which, I would argue, since it is not itself consistent, they also lack understanding.

    It’s far more probable that the opinions of liberal Islamophiles (yay! Mixed Arabic and Greek roots!) are informed by their lack of understanding, since what they dislike in their own society and religion is also present in Islamic society and religious practice. Ironically, about a hundred years ago, when liberals wanted to bring secularism and enlightenment to the Muslim world, and looked upon Islam as a backward superstition (as, I think, many still do, in private), their own beliefs were much closer to the Muslim than at present.

    Tzedakah which is pure charity and Ma'aser which is tithing, are two key concepts in the Halacha and compels all Jews to abide by them, over and above any taxation by the secular state.

    "Unfortunately, there are two subjects that we are never permitted to discuss with any seriousness: race and religion, and how our attitudes toward the first are rooted in the second. Thanks to this sternly — correctly? — enforced taboo, we are never able to get to the root of our problems...Although we may not discuss race other than to say that Jesus wants each and every one of us for a sunbeam, history is nothing more than the bloody record of the migration of tribes. When the white race broke out of Europe 500 years ago, it did many astounding things all over the globe. Inspired by a raging sky-god, the whites were able to pretend that their conquests were in order to bring the One God to everyone, particularly those with older and subtler religions. Now the tribes are on the move again.
    Professor Pendulum is having a nervous breakdown because so many different tribes are being drawn to this sweet land of liberty and, thus far, there is no indication that any of the new arrivals intends ever to read The Age of Jackson.
