Introduction: Ethno-religious (ER) beliefs and practices have been harmless when individuals or groups linked to those practices have limited influence over the state and economy. In contrast, when such groups exercise a disproportionately powerful influence over the state and economy, they dominate and exploit majorities while forming closed self-replicating networks.

Examples of powerful ethno-centric regimes in the 1930’s are well known for their brutality and devastating consequences. These include the white Christians in the US, Germany and the European colonial settlement regimes in Rhodesia, South Africa, India and Indonesia, as well as the Japanese imperialists in Asia.

In the post-colonial or neo-colonial era, ethno-centrism has taken the form of virulent anti-Islamic hysteria resulting in predatory Western regimes embarking on wars and military occupations in the Middle East.

The rise of Judeo-centrism, as an economic and political force, occurred in the last half of the 20th century. The Jewish-Zionist seizure, occupation and ethnic cleansing of historic Palestine and their rising economic and political influence within the United States has created a formidable power bloc with significant implications for world peace.

The rise of Jewish ethnocentrism (JE) has confounded its proponents as well as its adversaries; Zionists and anti-Semites alike are surprised by the scope and depth of JE.

Advocates and adversaries, of all persuasions, conflate the power of what they call ‘the Jews’, for their own purposes. Advocates find proof of ‘Jewish genius’ in every prestigious position and attribute it to their own unique culture, heredity and scholarship, rather than the result of a greater social-cultural context. The anti-Semites, for their part, attribute all the world’s nefarious dealings and diabolic plots to ‘the Jews’. This creates a strange duality of illusions about the exceptionalism of a minority group.

In this paper I will focus on demystifying the myths buttressing the power of contemporary Judeo-centric ideology, belief and organizational influence. There is little point in focusing on anti-Semitism, which has no impact on the economy and the exercise of state power with the possible exception of Saudi Arabia. Even the Saudi Monarchy’s occasional outbursts against Israel do not inhibit it from engaging in large-scale financial transactions with the Jewish banking elite on Wall Street and City of London and from forming covert alliances with Israeli intelligence in order to overthrow secular pro-Palestinian Arab regimes – as has happened in Libya, Iraq and Syria. They have both benefited from the massive ethnic cleansing of the highly educated minority Christian populations of secular Iraq and Syria.

Fake Anti-Semitism: Operational Weapon of the Ethno-Centric Jews

Fake anti-Semitism is most recently seen in the launching of series of anti-Semitic ‘threats’ by ethno-centric Jews to create hysteria, serves many purposes following the recent rise of populism in Europe and the election of the American President Donald Trump who had promised to withdraw the US from wars in the Middle East. First, it secures widespread support from North American and European regimes, especially when Israel is criticized throughout the world and at the United Nations for its war crimes in occupied Palestine. Widespread fake anti-Semitic attacks divert attention to Judeo-ethno centrists and validate their claims to be the first among the history’s victims. Second, widely publicized ‘fake’ acts of anti-Semitism arouse the ethnocentric foot soldiers and increase rich donor contributions to the illegal Jewish settlements and the Israeli military. Third, ‘fake anti-Semitism’ is used to threaten, repress and outlaw any organizations and individuals who criticize Israel and the influence of Jewish ethnocentric organizations in their home countries.

How many ‘anti-Semitic’ acts are staged is uncertain: On March 23, 2017, an Israeli-American man was arrested in Israel for sending hundreds of fake anti-Semitic threats to Jewish institutions and schools in four European countries and nine US states. Such threats led to the emergency grounding of two US airlines and the panicked evacuation of countless schools and cultural centers. This man used a sophisticated system of cloaking accounts to appear to originate in other countries. Despite his high skills at cyber-terrorism, Israeli authorities preposterously described him as a ‘teenager with a learning disability’. The Israeli-American cyber-terrorist’s arrest made the ‘back-pages’ news in the US for one day while his (and others’) fake threats continued to make international headlines for weeks.

These scores of fake anti-Semitic bomb threats were cited by the major ethnocentric leaders in the US to pressure the US President and hundreds of Congressional leaders, University Presidents, etc. to mindlessly echo their clamor for greater police state investigations against critics of Israel and to offer special ‘protection’ for potential ‘Jewish victims’. Moves to outlaw criticism of Israel as ‘anti-Semitism’ and a ‘hate crime’ increased.

Not surprisingly the leading Jewish organizations never backed down or called on the US government to investigate the source of the fake anti-Semitic threats: that is Israeli-American Zionists, who carry both nations’ passports and can enter and exit with total ease and enjoy immunity from extradition.

ORDER IT NOW

It is almost certain that the US FBI had identified the perpetrator of these acts as they uncovered the sophisticated operation based in Israel. The FBI would have demanded Israeli police arrest ‘the culprit’ and shut down the operation. Israeli police staged their own ‘fake’ investigation and concluded that the complex cloaked cyber operations ‘were the work of a shy nineteen year old with dyslexia’ – clearly another example of the Jewish genius. It is more likely that the hundreds of false-anti-Semitic threats were part of an Israeli state operation identified by the FBI who ‘diplomatically’ pressured Tel Aviv to cut out the monkey business. The news report of the lone-wolf teenager in Israel allowed the Israeli intelligence to cover-up their role. Once the Israelis passed off the unbelievable tale of a brilliant, if troubled, young ‘lone wolf’, the entire US mass media buried the story forever. In due time the so-called perpetrator will be released, amply rewarded and his identity re-cycled. In the meantime the US government, as well as several European governments, was forced to allocate tens of millions of dollars to provide extra security to Jewish institutions in the wake of these fake threats.

Jewish Power: The Top 25 American Multi-Billionaires

In February 2017, Forbes magazine compiled a list of the world’s billionaires, including a country-by-country account. The top five countries with multi-billionaires among its citizens are: the US with 565, China with 319, Germany with 114, India with 101, and Russia with 96. Moreover, since 2016 the net worth of the multi-billionaires grew 18% to $7.67 trillion dollars.

While the US has the greatest number of billionaires, China is fast catching up.

Despite China’s advances, the US remains the center of world capitalism with the greatest concentration of wealth, as well as the greatest and growing inequalities. One reasonably can argue that who controls US wealth controls the world.

‘Jews’ among the Top 25 Multi-Billionaires in the US

A review of the top 10 US multi-billionaires finds four who are identified as ‘Jews’: Mark Zuckerberg with $56 billion, Larry Ellison with $52.2 billion, Michael Bloomberg with $47.5 billion and Sergey Brin $39.4 billion. In other words 40% of the super-richest Americans are ‘Jews’ while 60% are non-Jews. Among the top ten in the US, billionaire Jews with a total of $195.1 billion are collectively less rich than the top billionaire Gentiles who own $282.7 billion.

Of the top 25 multi-billionaires in the US, 11 of the 25 are Jews. In other words ‘the Jews’ represent 44% of the top 25 biggest billionaires – outnumbered by Gentiles but catching up.

Analysis of the ‘Richest Jews’

We place ‘Jews’ in quotation marks because this is a doubtful signifier – more useful to both Zionist fanatics and anti-Semitic polemicists. Most are not ‘practicing’ or are completely disinterested in tribal religions. Nevertheless, half of secular Jews in the US are active supporters of Israel or involved in Fifth Column Israeli ‘front groups’.

In other words, about half of the richest ‘Jews’ do not consider themselves to be religiously or ethnically ‘Jewish’. Super rich Jews are divided regarding their ethnic loyalties between the US and Israel.

Moreover what is murkier, many of the richest so-called ‘Jews’ were born to ‘mixed marriages’. Strictly religious Jews do not recognize the children of such marriages as Jews because their mothers are not Jewish. The omnivorous Zionists, on the other hand, classify all of them as Jews on the basis of their actual or potential contribution to the State of Israel. In other words, the Zionist classification of ‘Jews’ becomes arbitrary, politicized and dependent on organizational affiliation. Religious practice and ethno-cultural purity are less important.

Judeo-Centrism and the Intrinsic Superiority Fallacy

Among the many zealous advocates of the Judeo-centric world, the most tiresome are those who claim they represent the product of superior genetics, culture and heritage – unique and intrinsic to Jews.

For many centuries most Jews were illiterate believers of religious tribal myths, taught by anti-scientific rabbis, who closed off the ghettos from the accomplishments of higher culture and forbade integration or mixed marriages. The high priests punished and expelled any Jews who were influenced by the surrounding Hellenistic, Romanized, Arabic, Renaissance and Rationalists cultures, like the great Spinoza.

In other words, Jews who had rejected Jewish law, the Scriptures and the Torah were expelled as apostates. But these ‘apostates’ were most open to the modern ideas of science. Jews greatly benefited from the emancipatory laws and opportunities following the French Revolution. Under Napoleon, Jews became citizens and were free to advance in science, the arts and finance by attending secular universities away from the primitive, superstitious Rabbi-controlled ghetto ’schools’.

The dramatic growth of intellectual excellence among Jews in the 19th century was a result of their ceasing to be Jews in the traditional closed religious sense. Did they suddenly switch on their ‘genius genes’ or invent a fake history or religion, as the ethno-centrist would have us believe? It seems far more likely that they took great advantage of the opportunities opened to them with major social and political developments in the greater society. As they assimilated and integrated in secular traditions, they ceased to be Jews in the tribal religious sense. Their scientific, medical and financial success came from learning, absorbing and exchanging scientific ideas, high culture and conservative, liberal and socialist ideas with the larger progressive non-Jewish society.

It is no coincidence that ‘great Jewish achievers’ like the totally secular Albert Einstein were educated in German universities by German professors and drew on scientific knowledge by German and non-Jewish scholars. His intellectual development was due to his free association with the great scientists and scholars of Germany and Europe, not closeted away in some ethno-tribal commune.

The Jews who remained embedded in the Polish, Lithuanian and Russian ghettos, under the reign of the leading Rabbis, remained illiterate, poor and backward. Most of the claims of ’superior’ cultural heritage or traditions are the creation of a mythical folk history serving ethno-national supremacists.

The Myth of the Contemporary Genius

The modern ethnocentric ideologues ignore the ‘dilution of Jewishness’ in their celebratory identification with successful ‘Jews’.

Many of the best thinkers, writers, scientists and political leaders were conversos (Christian converts), or integrated European secular nationalists, socialists, monarchists, bankers and professionals.

Some remained ‘reformed Jews’ or later transformed into secular Zionists: nationalists who despised non-Europeans as inferior and couldn’t even conceive of Arab Palestine as their ‘homeland’. It wasn’t until the 20th century that Zionism was in part ‘Judacized’. Early Zionists looked at various locations for a homeland, including Argentina and parts of Africa and Russia.

These ethno-chauvinist ideologues lay claim to all brilliant individuals, no matter how tenuous as examples of ‘Jewish genius’. Even those personally opposed Jewish ethno-religious beliefs and indifferent to tribal loyalties end up being claimed as examples of the ‘Jewish genius’. Once some ‘matrilineal link’ could be found, their success and brilliance was tied to the mystical lineage, no matter how tenuous.

This bizarre practice became even more commonplace following the Jewish military conquest and brutal ethnic cleansing of Palestine, with the military, political and financial backing of non-Jewish Europe and the United States. With myths and inflated ideas of unique virtue and brilliance, Israel was established as a racist apartheid state.

A new militant, ethnocentric Judaism converted Israel and its overseas backers into an ethno-ideological international power with religious trappings, based on the myth of its ‘exceptionalism’.

To maintain this myth, the personal histories of all prominent ‘Israel Firsters’ were sanitized and scrubbed of anti-social and destructive behavior.

ORDER IT NOW

All Jewish billionaires were to be portrayed as uniquely philanthropic, while the exploits of Jewish billionaire swindlers (Bernie Madoff, Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky) were not to be mentioned in polite company. The conquests of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, rapist-procurer head of the IMF Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Governor Elliot Spitzer, Congressman Anthony Weiner and other similar perverts quietly slithered off the edge of the planet although all had once been hailed as examples of ‘ethnocentric genius’.

Major Jewish political donors to US-UK-French electoral parties were hailed while their work on behalf of Israel was naturally assumed but not discussed. The dizzying shifts between open adulation and selective whitewash served to reinforce the illusion of superiority. Anyone, Jew or Gentile, bold enough to point out the obvious hypocrisy would be immediately censored as ’self-hating’ (Jew) or ‘anti-Semite’ (Gentile).

Return to the Beginning: Judeo-Centric Power

As mentioned above, Jews represent a substantial minority among the top multi-billionaires, but they are still a minority. Below the top level of wealth are the single digit billionaires and triple and double digit multi-millionaires; here the proportion of ‘Jews’ increases. These ‘less-than-super-billionaires’ are among the most active and the biggest financial and political supporters of the ethno centric ideology and tribal cohesion.

Los Angeles-based Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban contributed tens of millions of dollars to support of the Jewish state’s occupation of Palestine and brutal colonial land grabbing ’settlers’. His wealth is largely based on his ‘genius’ in pushing culturally vacuous Japanese cartoons (Mighty Morphing Power Rangers) on the nation’s children. He is the primary donor to the Democratic Party pushing Israel’s agenda – his number one priority as an American citizen.

The lesser ‘foot soldiers’ of the Zionist power structure are the millionaires and affluent professionals, dentists, stockbrokers, lawyers, doctors and impresarios. The middle and lower levels of wealth and power are a diverse group – mostly ethno-religious and secular, but very self-identified ethno-Jews. A minority is totally secular or converted to non-Jewish religions (especially Buddhism, Christianity)

Despite the constant drumbeat of ethnocentric identity, an increasing number of young US ‘Jews’ do not identify with Judaism or Israel. Their influence however is minimal.

The wealthy ethno-religious and secular ethnic Jews may or may not constitute a numerical majority but they are the best organized, most political and most adamant in their claims to ’speak for and represent the Jewish community’ as a whole, especially during waves of (fake) ‘anti-Semitism’!

The many former-Jews, anti-tribal Jews and ‘non-Jewish’ Jews are no match for the ethnocentric political apparatus controlled by the chauvinists.

When the tribalists appropriate the glory of a secular non-Jewish Jewish scientist or major ‘prize winner’ they claim his or her tribal affiliation in order to impress the ‘goys’ and to seduce younger more skeptical Jews about the advantages of ethno-chauvinism.

All the high-tech computer and financial billionaires are just assumed by the tribalists to view themselves as ‘Jewish geniuses’ even though they may have learned and borrowed ideas and knowledge from their non-Jewish partners and mentors in Silicon Valley or Wall Street.

Upward mobility within academia, government and business circles is automatically assumed by the tribalists to be a reward for superior merit – ‘Jewish genius’ – rather than nepotism or connections. Tribal networks and ‘understandings’ play a powerful unspoken role in career success and immunity from the consequences of failure, incompetence or dishonesty.

Multi-billionaires and multi-millionaires prospered because they entered establish lucrative fields or made their career choices highly profitable.

Early on, many powerful Gentile bankers provided entry for talented Jews to succeed. This is despite revisionist history bemoaning the exclusion of US Jews on Wall Street and their degrading denial of membership in select WASP country clubs. These myths of brutal oppression on Wall Street or Long Island yacht clubs have empowered generations of American Jews to assume the role of spokespersons for the oppressed everywhere. The expression ‘crying all the way to the bank’ comes to mind.

By the last quarter of the 20th century and especially in the 21st century, deindustrialization and the shift to financialization in the US economy increased the power and privilege of a disproportionate number of multi-billionaire/millionaire Jews. This seismic shift has coincided with the pervasive impoverishment of the marginalized working class in the former ‘rust belt’ and central parts of the country and the incredible concentration of national wealth at the top 1%. This is a demographic shift and ethno-class apartheid of huge, but unstudied, significance.

The most important political question is not how many Jews are super-wealthy but what proportion of them are influential political donors and active in the Democratic or Republican Parties in order to intervene on behalf of clan, tribe and motherland (Israel). Majorities among Jews are not crucial – most are not politically active. What is decisive is the percentage of all the super-wealthy who are politically active, organized and contribute substantially to influence and control the mass media to promote their ethno-centric ideology and punish critics.

Conclusion

Overt and covert Jewish supremacists have embroidered a fake history and legacy of exceptional intelligence ignoring the context of advanced non-Jewish science and cultures, which preceded and later provided Jews with opportunities for education and wealth.

The danger inherent in all ethno-centric tribes is that they work to dominate majority populations by creating systems of assigning superiority and inferiority. They then use these to justify growing inequalities of wealth, education and political power!

Historically favored minorities tend to overreach and, like the eyeless Sampson, bring down the Temple on everyone. Power corrupts and absolute ethno-chauvinist power corrupts absolutely. Intelligent Jews of principle are abandoning this Temple built on injustice and myths: Over one-third of Israeli Jews would leave Israel now, if they could. Perhaps their disenchantment with the tribal ethnocracy governing Israel is reflected in the desire of many non-Jewish Jews in America for a truly just, non-tribal society.

    Actually, psychiatric studies in the past have shown that ruthlessness can make up to some degree for intelligence.

    True, there are some extraordinary wealthy Jewish personages in the United States but as professor Petras points out these people are not exactly what you would call "Classical Judaics" either via religion or heritage. They simply succeeded in the narrow focus of creating wealth and have been assigned to the category of being Jewish, though most if not all would probably not understand any aspect of traditional Judaism if it rolled over them in a Mack truck...

  8. Petras’ main problem is Zionist Jews, because they run a ‘racist apartheid state’. While they’re parasites, the real threat to the West are the liberal non-Zionist Jews who hate the same thing Petras appears to hate – White Christian domination. Petras tries to pretend liberal Jews ‘don’t really Jew’ because they reject mythologized Zionist historiography. But this treats an ethnicity as if it were some eternal Platonic Form – that the requisites for Jewishness are an absolutely fixed criteria. When Jews encountered modernity, a modern Jewish identity (often rejecting the traditional religious authority of the Rabbis) emerged. This identity was marked by a revolutionary fervour, and a distinct sense that the Jews were the catalysts of universal progress.

    tl;dr: this article diverts attention to one arm of Jewry (Zionists) to divert from the agenda of the Jews who agree with Petras’ politics. Like in the Old Testament, the Jews have divided their forces into two camps…

    The real threat is disloyal and "by all means necessary" Zionism and Jewish supremacism.

    The real threat is the Zionist lobby, AKA the Israel lobby in the US and the Jewish lobby in Israel.

    Mixing the collective of liberal, average Jews with the disloyal Zionist and Jewish supremacist leaders - among which there are plenty of Gentiles - you immediately become a de facto brainless anti-semite and Jew-hater, losing all credibility and automatically becoming part of the problem.

    You become then an unwitting pawn in the hands of Zionists, doing exactly as you are expected like a muppet, because the goals are:

    1.- Have concerned citizens like you ostracised, dismissed as anti-semites and Jew-haters.

    2.- Keep average Jews believing they are persecuted and hated so they are more likely to support "by all means necessary" Zionism and Zionist goals, become Israeli citizens and even possibly move to Israel.

    Plenty of Jews are on your side, even if they do not agree 100% with you in everything, if you don't hate and distrust them by default. They are most convincing to people on the fence with the Israel lobby issue, which is the real threat.

    And the point is to convince a critical mass of US citizens, average Jews included, of the very real threat that the Israel lobby represents to US citizenry:

    1.- Wars in the ME

    2.- WWIII with Russia and China

    3.- Open borders mass immigration

    Jews have way more credibility when denouncing the Israel lobby problem than average Gentiles for obvious reasons, come to terms with it.

    Anti-semites and Jew-haters are considered unreasonable lunatics by mainstream population and have zero credibility.

    Do you want to be one of them?

    Interesting article. Petras is attempting to be critical but, at the same time, generous (in a limited way). He’s giving Jews the benefit of the doubt. As proof, he offers up the surprising statistic that “one third of Israeli Jews would leave now, if they could”. Wow. Really? Maybe it’s true. Maybe not. But what this statistic means is unclear.

    Sorry, Jim, I remain very unconvinced that any large portion of Jews are ready to abandon their sense of collective superiority or of being ‘chosen’. And I’m similarly confident that the vast majority of Jews like their exclusive network just the way it is. For them, it works marvelously. Plus, they’re the world’s foremost victims. The rare status offers them a host of advantages, protections and opportunities.

    It is possible that some Jews do want to leave Israel since many Jews thrive most when they have a non-Jewish host population in their midst.

    Incredibly, it’s possible that Israel is simply ‘too Jewish’ for a lot of Jews.

    Indeed, many Jews need a non-Jewish majority around them in order to create a vibrant assortment of special, ethnic-based niches for themselves. It’s how they earn a living.

    After all, who’s going to pay retail?

    Send in the goyim!

    The USA has paid Israel's bills from the beginning.
    Whenever there was a bit of pushback, like Bush I telling them if they wanted the USA to pay for resettlement of Russian Jews in Israel, they would have to stop settlements. The Jews weren't having any of it---but they were also outraged at the US!

    And they made a deal with the US and with Russia that the US wouldn't
    underwrite Russian Jews who wanted to go to the States. Although most of them did. No, these Jews were pawns in the Eretz Israel project to settle the Occupied Territories and create another fact on the ground that dispossessed the Pals. In other words, they were buying bodies---and they wanted teh States to pay for them!

    Another thing: The Zionists cite the Balfour Declaration as an "international agreement" that gives them the whole Land of Israel, so, they say, there is no such thing as the "occupied territories." All that land has always belonged to us because the Balfour Declaraion says it's so. Yet the Zionists terrorized the Brits out of Palestine---fundamentally showing that they had zero respect for the empire that had pushed their interests forward---and now have the nerve to cite a century-old piece of paper as an international agreement that trumps all subsequent history, and is still in force.

    What agreement have the Zionists ever even signed? They are scofflaws at the UN. It is beyond chutzpah. The Zionist leaders are actually incoherent, but no one seems to take the time to show how little sense any of them make. They are not "smart." Instead they have guile and chutzpah. Don't ever believe a promise made by a Jew/Zionist. They are also very clever at using a religion that they don't actually belive in. T hat is why it is kind of irrelevant whether any of them are sincere in their religious beliefs. They have made a kind of religion out of their Jewishness itself. It is weird.

    Petras' main problem is Zionist Jews, because they run a 'racist apartheid state'. While they're parasites, the real threat to the West are the liberal non-Zionist Jews who hate the same thing Petras appears to hate - White Christian domination. Petras tries to pretend liberal Jews 'don't really Jew' because they reject mythologized Zionist historiography. But this treats an ethnicity as if it were some eternal Platonic Form - that the requisites for Jewishness are an absolutely fixed criteria. When Jews encountered modernity, a modern Jewish identity (often rejecting the traditional religious authority of the Rabbis) emerged. This identity was marked by a revolutionary fervour, and a distinct sense that the Jews were the catalysts of universal progress.

    tl;dr: this article diverts attention to one arm of Jewry (Zionists) to divert from the agenda of the Jews who agree with Petras' politics. Like in the Old Testament, the Jews have divided their forces into two camps...

    The real threat is disloyal and “by all means necessary” Zionism and Jewish supremacism.

    The real threat is the Zionist lobby, AKA the Israel lobby in the US and the Jewish lobby in Israel.

    Mixing the collective of liberal, average Jews with the disloyal Zionist and Jewish supremacist leaders – among which there are plenty of Gentiles – you immediately become a de facto brainless anti-semite and Jew-hater, losing all credibility and automatically becoming part of the problem.

    You become then an unwitting pawn in the hands of Zionists, doing exactly as you are expected like a muppet, because the goals are:

    1.- Have concerned citizens like you ostracised, dismissed as anti-semites and Jew-haters.

    2.- Keep average Jews believing they are persecuted and hated so they are more likely to support “by all means necessary” Zionism and Zionist goals, become Israeli citizens and even possibly move to Israel.

    Plenty of Jews are on your side, even if they do not agree 100% with you in everything, if you don’t hate and distrust them by default. They are most convincing to people on the fence with the Israel lobby issue, which is the real threat.

    And the point is to convince a critical mass of US citizens, average Jews included, of the very real threat that the Israel lobby represents to US citizenry:

    1.- Wars in the ME

    2.- WWIII with Russia and China

    3.- Open borders mass immigration

    Jews have way more credibility when denouncing the Israel lobby problem than average Gentiles for obvious reasons, come to terms with it.

    Anti-semites and Jew-haters are considered unreasonable lunatics by mainstream population and have zero credibility.

    Do you want to be one of them?

    Needless to say it has worked as intended, you just provided the link to save face as the predictable shill you are: attaboy!

    So to the question:

    Is killing Palestinians civilized or uncivilized?

    Iffy the shill answers: (and Sam Shama the other shill agrees)

    Some “ethnic cleansings” of some villages and areas and some retaliatory attacks leading up to and into the 1948 war – uncivilized
     
    Some but not all? Do you mean, perhaps, the killing of Palestinian civilians is uncivilised?

    Why don't you just say so? Why the ambiguous use of language and mental gymnastics?

    If you or anyone else asks me, is the killing of Israeli, or Russian, or American, or Palestinian civilians civilised? I will answer, without blinking... Absolutely uncivilised!! even Israeli, American or Russian soldiers, or Zionist leaders, or Zionist shills like yourself... is killing them for what they think or do civilised?

    Absolutely uncivilised!! I will answer, unambiguously, unlike you yourself just did. Next!

    Iffy the shill continues:

    Most Palestinian deaths in the all the wars – civilized
     
    What do you mean exactly by "the all the wars"?

    Are you referring to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict?

    So most Palestinian deaths in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 6,371, counting only from 2000 to 2010 according to B'Tselem, of which at least 1,317 were kids, are according to you "civilised"... what a pair of nauseating fascists, Jewish supremacist "88s" you and your workmate Sham the Shameless are. Next!

    An Israeli military court in Tel Aviv on Wednesday declared IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria guilty of manslaughter. (and condemned him to 18 months imprisonment for executing a handcuffed and defenceless prisoner by shooting him point blank)– civilized
     
    (emphasis and addendum mine)

    You forgot to add he was sentenced to only 18 months imprisonment, shameless shill! So a judiciary system that condemns a murderer to a shocking 18 months of prison for executing an unarmed and handcuffed on the floor prisoner is, according to you and your workmate Hasbara shill Sham the Shameless, totally "civilised"

    Isn't what you both consider "civilised" more expected from a fascist regime? What a delicious irony you constantly smearing everyone as "88s"... turns out you yourselves are a a pair of Jewish 88s "Goy-haters"!

    It seems that very harsh and “Social Darwinist” environments and cultures do not necessarily select for intelligence exclusively, or maybe not even predominately, but that they mostly select for risk taking, aggressiveness, ruthlessness, i.e., psychopathic and rather anti-social traits. This has wide-ranging implications and consequences for our World and in particular for the (white) West when it comes to immigration; even or particularly when it comes to mass-immigration of high(er) IQ but also high(er) PQ people from China, etc. into Western cultures and nations, particular into more altruistic, individualistic, trusting(less corrupt, less cut-throat, less Social Darwinist) Protestant/Northern European cultures and nations:

    Overt and covert Jewish supremacists have embroidered a fake history and legacy of exceptional intelligence ignoring the context of advanced non-Jewish science and cultures, which preceded and later provided Jews with opportunities for education and wealth.

    The danger inherent in all ethno-centric tribes is that they work to dominate majority populations by creating systems of assigning superiority and inferiority. They then use these to justify growing inequalities of wealth, education and political power!

    An absolute tour de force!

    It is interesting to note that although Jews have a significant number of genes in common, resulting in a general resemblance between Jews of any kind, Ashkenazi Jews have a substantial number of Nordic genes, captured from Nordics during the Jews’ stay in Aryan society. Right across Europe, and also here in the United Sates, it is common to see successful Ashkenazi Jew with fair hair and blue eyes, the George Soros type. [26] The Nordicization of the Ashkenazi Jew though, methodologically invalidates claims of Jewish intellectual superiority because the superiority could well be a product of the Nordic genes which these Jews have captured.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merton_thesis

    Merton focuses on English Puritanism and German Pietism as being responsible for the development of the scientific revolution of the 17th and 18th centuries. He explains that the connection between religious affiliation and interest in science is a result of a significant synergy between the ascetic Protestant values and those of modern science.[5] Protestant values encouraged scientific research by allowing science to identify God’s influence on the world and thus providing religious justification for scientific research.[1]

    We discussed the Jewish community, and the different groups within the Jewish community, over in the other thread, and also I brought up Mr. Petras's excellent article in that discussion; so I think it is important to share some excerpts from my comments there, here. The height difference is important as you will see, if you follow the links provided:

    James Petras just recently wrote a most excellent article on this topic. Highly recommended
    [...]
    One of the most destructive Jewish manipulations/seductions of the last century for Western civilization, in my opinion, was probably the promotion of neo-liberal “Chicago School”-style economics, also known as “Freshwater” economics, promoted by Milton Friedman (5 feet short; his fellow Eastern Ashkenazi Jewish Western mind seducer and manipulator, “Objectivist” Ayn Rand, was actually taller than him at 5 feet and 2 inches), which attacked and to a large degree replaced Keynesian economics aka “Saltwater” economics, promoted/founded by John Maynard Keynes (6 feet 6 inches tall)
    [...]
    In the American experience, increased financialization occurred concomitant with the rise of neoliberalism and the free-market doctrines of Milton Friedman and the Chicago School of Economics in the late Twentieth Century.
    [...]
    Jewish people stood out in a third trajectory in which people invest early in life in high-risk, high-return assets such as stocks and bonds and build wealth quickly while putting less emphasis on homeownership. About one-third of Jews followed this path, compared to no conservative Protestants, 7 percent of mainline Protestants and 4 percent of Catholics.

    Just to put this in perspective; if we go by the simple formula I shared in my earlier comment:
    Because the correlation between IQ and height is only 0.2, seven foot men would on average be 0.2(139) = 28 IQ points smarter than five foot men. – https://brainsize.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/height-iq/
    [...]
    This would put John Maynard Keynes at a circa 20 IQ point advantage to Milton Friedman, just on their height difference.

    Who would you trust with and want to put in charge of designing and managing your economy, Milton Friedman or John Maynard Keynes?

    By the way, this is another most excellent piece/summary on the subject matter:

    Differences between the Eastern European immigrant community in the US and the older German-Jewish establishment — and their commonalities

    [...]
    In short, I agree with Paul Gottfried. The distinction between the Jews deriving from Eastern Europe and the previously existing Jewish community are often important. As noted above, in the absence of the very large number of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, the transformative effects of Jewish activism on the US would not have occurred. The German-Jewish elite did indeed have influence far beyond their numbers, but their tiny numbers and relatively conservative attitudes would have prevented them from having the transformative effects that their much more numerous—and much more radical—Eastern European cousins had.

    Jews and the Chinese seem to be equally ambitious and competitive, some might even call it cunning. Interestingly, the two groups/races seem to have comparable IQs and seem to be carrying the low-activity 3-repeat MAOA allele at very similar rates
    [...]
    Low MAO-A activity is associated with a significantly increased risk of aggressive and antisocial behavior.

    How Jews Became Smart: Anti-”Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence”

    What about those at the pinnacle, did they need high IQ’s? No doubt, it took cunning to see good opportunities. But other personality factors besides intelligence could lead to fortune. One could even keep this with a psychological Darwinian orientation by suggesting that risk taking, or aggressiveness-both traits often claimed to have genetic bases-led to great profit. — Jews (2R 1.3%; 3R 62%) carry low-activity MAOA at much higher rates than Whites (2R 0.2%; 3R 36%) http://theunsilencedscience.blogspot.com/2013/01/monoamine-oxidase-bibliography.html — Yet more then any individual qualities, the most important factors leading to greater financial success were possession of capital, social connections, and political patrons. And let us not forget luck–circumstances that lead to a huge payoff, or sudden ruination.

    It seems that very harsh and “Social Darwinist” environments and cultures do not necessarily select for intelligence exclusively, or maybe not even predominately, but that they mostly select for risk taking, aggressiveness, ruthlessness, i.e., psychopathic and rather anti-social traits. This has wide-ranging implications and consequences for our World and in particular for the (white) West when it comes to immigration; even or particularly when it comes to mass-immigration of high(er) IQ but also high(er) PQ people from China, etc. into Western cultures and nations, particular into more altruistic, individualistic, trusting(less corrupt, less cut-throat, less Social Darwinist) Protestant/Northern European cultures and nations:

    The only “contribution” Judaism ever gave the world and Christianity was the Ten Commandments–nothing more.
    In fact, moslems have more respect for Jesus Christ and his mother Mary than any jews.
    The jewish Talmud is a supremacist text that demeans and marginalizes anyone who is not jewish, relegating them to the status of “animals (livestock) with souls”, to be used for the advantage of the jew.
    Of course, moslems celebrate their own form of supremacism, marginalizing “infidels”, similar to what is in the jewish Talmud.
    One divergence is the way Jesus Christ is treated….Jews regard Jesus Christ as an apostate, boiling in excrement for eternity while his mother Mary is considered to be a harlot who consorted with a Roman soldier to conceive Jesus.
    Moslems, on the other hand, regard Jesus Christ as a great prophet–not the “Son of God”, but a great prophet, nevertheless, while Mary is given a place of high honor, being specifically mentioned in the Qur’an.
    Now which belief system is more hostile to Christianity?

    There is no Arabic word for infidel. The Arabic word "kafir" means one who covers the truth (of God) or is ungrateful to God.
  26. Literacy provides advantages, that is the message here. Every Jewish boy was required to learn to read a dead language before becoming a man in his community during many centuries when very few Europeans could read. Once you had learned to read Hebrew moderately well learning any European language was easy, and many Jews also knew the language from the last place where their people lived, liked Spain. Jews who did not believe but got the training used the Bible as a template for advice on temptations that destroy a people, practices that weaken the innocent making them vulnerable to exploitation. “Secular Jews” systematically move from culture to culture promoting pornography, feminism, and usury in order to weaken their hosts, then make a killing financially as their hosts collapse, followed by a secular Jewish move to the next emerging gentile power. Go look up pornography on the internet and see who has owned that industry for the last century. Then go look up who controls the Federal Reserve.

    How about learning how to follow the comment threads if you want to blather on.

    I Honestly have neither the will nor the time to follow your braying and go through your “brilliant” posts, just wanted you to link to the response in question to save precious time!

    Not everyone is getting paid to shill here, shameless shill.

    Needless to say it has worked as intended, you just provided the link to save face as the predictable shill you are: attaboy!

    So to the question:

    Is killing Palestinians civilized or uncivilized?

    Iffy the shill answers: (and Sam Shama the other shill agrees)

    Some “ethnic cleansings” of some villages and areas and some retaliatory attacks leading up to and into the 1948 war – uncivilized

    Some but not all? Do you mean, perhaps, the killing of Palestinian civilians is uncivilised?

    Why don’t you just say so? Why the ambiguous use of language and mental gymnastics?

    If you or anyone else asks me, is the killing of Israeli, or Russian, or American, or Palestinian civilians civilised? I will answer, without blinking… Absolutely uncivilised!! even Israeli, American or Russian soldiers, or Zionist leaders, or Zionist shills like yourself… is killing them for what they think or do civilised?

    Absolutely uncivilised!! I will answer, unambiguously, unlike you yourself just did. Next!

    Iffy the shill continues:

    Most Palestinian deaths in the all the wars – civilized

    What do you mean exactly by “the all the wars”?

    Are you referring to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict?

    So most Palestinian deaths in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 6,371, counting only from 2000 to 2010 according to B’Tselem, of which at least 1,317 were kids, are according to you “civilised”… what a pair of nauseating fascists, Jewish supremacist “88s” you and your workmate Sham the Shameless are. Next!

    An Israeli military court in Tel Aviv on Wednesday declared IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria guilty of manslaughter. (and condemned him to 18 months imprisonment for executing a handcuffed and defenceless prisoner by shooting him point blank)– civilized

    (emphasis and addendum mine)

    You forgot to add he was sentenced to only 18 months imprisonment, shameless shill! So a judiciary system that condemns a murderer to a shocking 18 months of prison for executing an unarmed and handcuffed on the floor prisoner is, according to you and your workmate Hasbara shill Sham the Shameless, totally “civilised”

    Isn’t what you both consider “civilised” more expected from a fascist regime? What a delicious irony you constantly smearing everyone as “88s”… turns out you yourselves are a a pair of Jewish 88s “Goy-haters”!

    One would need to look at the facts in each incident, and for many of the incidents we do not have the history. We don’t know which side instigated or retaliated, or which side just wanted to kill some of the people on the “other” side. We can’t always know which operation was purely militarily necessary and which operation was intended to create terror and drive the Palestinians away. War is like that.

    Came upon a Jewish girl (obviously mixed, with blonde hair and blue eyes) in a group meeting. She’s fine, a bit chatty and we bantered throughout the meeting. I was under the impression that she would bring up some Jewish background during a conversation. Nope, she didn’t. We continued our daily life chat.

    A young black man entered into our conversation after about half an hour because he was assigned in our project. Not a minute passed did she manage to flee the social, racial dynamic by mentioning her background “Well, you know, I’m Jewish. My mom always …..”.

    I was amazed for a second how she quickly dropped her background so that she can escape the Black White slavery dynamic. We all try to maximize our presence in social dynamic.

    That’s how the entire perception of “Jewish” identity plays a role in your success in the US.

    Look at Amy Schumer, Mayim Bialik: their Jewish background give them a shield from any slavery attack, not like Ann Coulter who has to detail her intention every time she opened her mouth.

    If you ask which country offers the best benefit of being able to claim you’re Jewish without any repercussion of “slavery, racism attack”, you need look no further than living in the US.

    -> Any White guy who can’t have White women will settle down with Jewish women, and their children will benefit from being Jewish. If your procreation follows this path over time, you have White looking Jewish after 2nd or 3rd generation.

    -> Any Jewish guy, well you know the answer, settle down with Asian women [Rupert Murdoch, Mark Zuckerberg, Jed Rubenfeld, etc etc etc.]

    It works just the same with any identity that has the 'virtuous victim/underdog' narrative attached to it. 'Native American', for example. Or 'Mexican'.

    Overt and covert Jewish supremacists have embroidered a fake history and legacy of exceptional intelligence ignoring the context of advanced non-Jewish science and cultures, which preceded and later provided Jews with opportunities for education and wealth.

    The danger inherent in all ethno-centric tribes is that they work to dominate majority populations by creating systems of assigning superiority and inferiority. They then use these to justify growing inequalities of wealth, education and political power!
     
    An absolute tour de force!


    It is interesting to note that although Jews have a significant number of genes in common, resulting in a general resemblance between Jews of any kind, Ashkenazi Jews have a substantial number of Nordic genes, captured from Nordics during the Jews' stay in Aryan society. Right across Europe, and also here in the United Sates, it is common to see successful Ashkenazi Jew with fair hair and blue eyes, the George Soros type. [26] The Nordicization of the Ashkenazi Jew though, methodologically invalidates claims of Jewish intellectual superiority because the superiority could well be a product of the Nordic genes which these Jews have captured.

    Merton focuses on English Puritanism and German Pietism as being responsible for the development of the scientific revolution of the 17th and 18th centuries. He explains that the connection between religious affiliation and interest in science is a result of a significant synergy between the ascetic Protestant values and those of modern science.[5] Protestant values encouraged scientific research by allowing science to identify God’s influence on the world and thus providing religious justification for scientific research.[1]

    I am skeptical on the myopia and (natural/genetic) intelligence connection, though. Don't get me wrong, I believe it is a real finding and correlation, but I think the explanation for it is environmental, i.e., people with myopia often read and study more than the average person and are therefore more knowledgeable, successful, etc., but I believe that they are not necessarily ''naturally''/genetically more intelligent, if that makes any sense?

    I agree with Mr. Sailer on nurture vs. nature:


    Sailer summed up his view on nature and nurture in October 2012 as:

    If you analyze a host of real world outcomes using adoption studies, fraternal v. identical twin studies, twins-raised-apart studies, the history of early childhood intervention research, naturally occurring experiments, differences between societies, changes over history, and so forth, you tend to come up with nature and nurture as being about equally important: maybe fifty-fifty.

    As we have argued below, Lynn's Whites include Mediterranean and Alpine mixtures(although for once he did not include Hispanics with Whites). We have suggested previously, based on the Flynn effect and the IQ scores of Nordics made earlier in this century (as well as other data) that the Nordic IQ score is greater than 100 although it is difficult to say what it is today with politically correct testing. Lynn is skeptical about environmental explanations of this difference. He says "Environmental explanations for the high Jewish [verbal] IQ are difficult to find. Even if it is supposed that Jews provide their children with a good environment for fostering the intelligence of their children, there is a problem for providing an explanation for why they do this". [18] There are no shortages of environmental explanations of the high Jewish IQ, including Jewish urbanization and professional aggressiveness, a culture valuing learning and language (especially learning other languages which improves language cognitive abilities), and a culture fostering success. [19] Lynn's statement is absurd because it is obvious why Jewish parents provide a good environment for fostering their children's intelligence - and that is for success. [20]

    Some but not all? Do you mean, perhaps, the killing of Palestinian civilians is uncivilised?

    Why don't you just say so? Why the ambiguous use of language and mental gymnastics?

    If you or anyone else asks me, is the killing of Israeli, or Russian, or American, or Palestinian civilians civilised? I will answer, without blinking... Absolutely uncivilised!! even Israeli, American or Russian soldiers, or Zionist leaders, or Zionist shills like yourself... is killing them for what they think or do civilised?

    Absolutely uncivilised!! I will answer, unambiguously, unlike you yourself just did. Next!

    Iffy the shill continues:

    Most Palestinian deaths in the all the wars – civilized
     
    What do you mean exactly by "the all the wars"?

    Are you referring to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict?

    So most Palestinian deaths in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 6,371, counting only from 2000 to 2010 according to B'Tselem, of which at least 1,317 were kids, are according to you "civilised"... what a pair of nauseating fascists, Jewish supremacist "88s" you and your workmate Sham the Shameless are.

    (emphasis and addendum mine)

    You forgot to add he was sentenced to only 18 months imprisonment, shameless shill! So a judiciary system that condemns a murderer to a shocking 18 months of prison for executing an unarmed and handcuffed on the floor prisoner is, according to you and your workmate Hasbara shill Sham the Shameless, totally "civilised"

We don’t know which side instigated or retaliated, or which side just wanted to kill some of the people on the “other” side.

    You should put your "superior intellect" to good use working on your reading comprehension skills, starting with rigorous research and understanding on what scare quotes are, how they are used and how they subtly alter the meaning of sentences - before pathetically (and clumsily) plagiarising parts of my response to Incitatus.

    Therefore, we can deduce from your again ambiguous response, some of those ethnic cleansings were justified and civilised?

    So to the question "Was the killing Palestinian civilians (in some of those ethnic cleansings and retaliatory attacks leading into the 1948 war) civilised?" your answer is "sometimes it was"

    Look at Amy Schumer, Mayim Bialik: their Jewish background give them a shield from any slavery attack, not like Ann Coulter who has to detail her intention every time she opened her mouth.
     
    It works just the same with any identity that has the 'virtuous victim/underdog' narrative attached to it. 'Native American', for example. Or 'Mexican'. Even 'Irish' would work: they have a persecution narrative too, and therefore it's assumed that they empathize with those whose identities have similar narratives.

    I dunno why you fellas are obsessing about this particular identity so much. The victimhood envy? You really need to learn to judge people, like the guy said, by the content of their character. On individual, case by case basis.

    There also appears to be a correlation between blue eyes and intelligence, as well as myopia and intelligence.

    There is a lot of information in the eyes!

    Yes, absolutely! The eyes are one of my favorite topics to research and discuss.

    I am skeptical on the myopia and (natural/genetic) intelligence connection, though. Don’t get me wrong, I believe it is a real finding and correlation, but I think the explanation for it is environmental, i.e., people with myopia often read and study more than the average person and are therefore more knowledgeable, successful, etc., but I believe that they are not necessarily ”naturally”/genetically more intelligent, if that makes any sense?

    I agree with Mr. Sailer on nurture vs. nature:

    Sailer summed up his view on nature and nurture in October 2012 as:

    If you analyze a host of real world outcomes using adoption studies, fraternal v. identical twin studies, twins-raised-apart studies, the history of early childhood intervention research, naturally occurring experiments, differences between societies, changes over history, and so forth, you tend to come up with nature and nurture as being about equally important: maybe fifty-fifty. The glass is roughly half-full and half-empty.[30]

    http://www.unz.com/jthompson/isteve-metrics/#comment-1830062

    As we have argued below, Lynn’s Whites include Mediterranean and Alpine mixtures(although for once he did not include Hispanics with Whites). We have suggested previously, based on the Flynn effect and the IQ scores of Nordics made earlier in this century (as well as other data) that the Nordic IQ score is greater than 100 although it is difficult to say what it is today with politically correct testing. Lynn is skeptical about environmental explanations of this difference. He says “Environmental explanations for the high Jewish [verbal] IQ are difficult to find. Even if it is supposed that Jews provide their children with a good environment for fostering the intelligence of their children, there is a problem for providing an explanation for why they do this”. [18] There are no shortages of environmental explanations of the high Jewish IQ, including Jewish urbanization and professional aggressiveness, a culture valuing learning and language (especially learning other languages which improves language cognitive abilities), and a culture fostering success. [19] Lynn’s statement is absurd because it is obvious why Jewish parents provide a good environment for fostering their children’s intelligence – and that is for success. [20]

    Thanks for the information!

    The link between myopia and genetic intelligence appears to be more biological than environmental.

    I do not have the links, but early development of myopia (before 10-11) was strongly associated with higher intelligence. In fact the early developers of myopia were ten times more likely to have higher intelligence (>130) than the late developers.

    Furthermore, and again I do not have the link, I read that the gene for myopia was tightly linked with a gene for more convolutions of the cerebral cortex.

    Very intriguing data. But what could possibly have selected for myopia?

    I remember once telling my sister that if I had lived in the old west I would have been a feared gunfighter. She told me without flinching that I was legally blind and would have been retreating into the house when the bad guys came to town. Not much in the way of help for the severely myopic before glasses. So what is the selection pressure?

    The only "contribution" Judaism ever gave the world and Christianity was the Ten Commandments--nothing more.
    In fact, moslems have more respect for Jesus Christ and his mother Mary than any jews.
    The jewish Talmud is a supremacist text that demeans and marginalizes anyone who is not jewish, relegating them to the status of "animals (livestock) with souls", to be used for the advantage of the jew.
    Of course, moslems celebrate their own form of supremacism, marginalizing "infidels", similar to what is in the jewish Talmud.
    One divergence is the way Jesus Christ is treated....Jews regard Jesus Christ as an apostate, boiling in excrement for eternity while his mother Mary is considered to be a harlot who consorted with a Roman soldier to conceive Jesus.
    Moslems, on the other hand, regard Jesus Christ as a great prophet--not the "Son of God", but a great prophet, nevertheless, while Mary is given a place of high honor, being specifically mentioned in the Qur'an.

    Interesting article. Petras is attempting to be critical but, at the same time, generous (in a limited way). He's giving Jews the benefit of the doubt. As proof, he offers up the surprising statistic that "one third of Israeli Jews would leave now, if they could". Wow. Really? Maybe it's true. Maybe not. But what this statistic means is unclear.

    Sorry, Jim, I remain very unconvinced that any large portion of Jews are ready to abandon their sense of collective superiority or of being 'chosen'. And I'm similarly confident that the vast majority of Jews like their exclusive network just the way it is. For them, it works marvelously. Plus, they're the world's foremost victims. The rare status offers them a host of advantages, protections and opportunities.

    It is possible that some Jews do want to leave Israel since many Jews thrive most when they have a non-Jewish host population in their midst.

    Incredibly, it's possible that Israel is simply 'too Jewish' for a lot of Jews.

    Indeed, many Jews need a non-Jewish majority around them in order to create a vibrant assortment of special, ethnic-based niches for themselves. It's how they earn a living.

    After all, who's going to pay retail?

    Send in the goyim!

    Indeed, imagine Israel trying to make it without US taxpayers cash, US loans never re-paid, US weaponry re-sold, ‘holocaust’ lies money, and without sheltering billionaire Jew crooks from prosecution.

    No chance.

    Some “ethnic cleansings” of some villages and areas and some retaliatory attacks leading up to and into the 1948 war – uncivilized

    One would need to look at the facts in each incident, and for many of the incidents we do not have the history. We don’t know which side instigated or retaliated, or which side just wanted to kill some of the people on the “other” side. We can’t always know which operation was purely militarily necessary and which operation was intended to create terror and drive the Palestinians away. War is like that.

    What do you mean exactly by “the all the wars”?

    Are you referring to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict?
     

    Yes

    So most Palestinian deaths in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict

    Yes

    Sam is Jewish; I am not.

    Besides, Sam doesn’t hate goys, I have trouble getting him to hate the 88s.

    Kudos on your ability to recognize a superior intellect, not everyone can do that.

    You should put your “superior intellect” to good use working on your reading comprehension skills, starting with rigorous research and understanding on what scare quotes are, how they are used and how they subtly alter the meaning of sentences – before pathetically (and clumsily) plagiarising parts of my response to Incitatus. With the use of scare quotes it just doesn’t work shill.

    Therefore, we can deduce from your again ambiguous response, some of those ethnic cleansings were justified and civilised?

    So to the question “Was the killing Palestinian civilians (in some of those ethnic cleansings and retaliatory attacks leading into the 1948 war) civilised?” your answer is “sometimes it was”

    Personal anecdote

    Came upon a Jewish girl (obviously mixed, with blonde hair and blue eyes) in a group meeting. She's fine, a bit chatty and we bantered throughout the meeting. I was under the impression that she would bring up some Jewish background during a conversation. Nope, she didn't. We continued our daily life chat.

    A young black man entered into our conversation after about half an hour because he was assigned in our project. Not a minute passed did she manage to flee the social, racial dynamic by mentioning her background "Well, you know, I'm Jewish. My mom always .....".

    I was amazed for a second how she quickly dropped her background so that she can escape the Black White slavery dynamic. We all try to maximize our presence in social dynamic.

    That's how the entire perception of "Jewish" identity plays a role in your success in the US.

    Look at Amy Schumer, Mayim Bialik: their Jewish background give them a shield from any slavery attack, not like Ann Coulter who has to detail her intention every time she opened her mouth.

    If you ask which country offers the best benefit of being able to claim you're Jewish without any repercussion of "slavery, racism attack", you need look no further than living in the US.

    -> Any White guy who can't have White women will settle down with Jewish women, and their children will benefit from being Jewish. If your procreation follows this path over time, you have White looking Jewish after 2nd or 3rd generation.

    -> Any Jewish guy, well you know the answer, settle down with Asian women [Rupert Murdoch, Mark Zuckerberg, Jed Rubenfeld, etc etc etc.]

    The notion of Jewish identity or religious practice or racial/ethnic reasoning is very blurry with all the mixing.

    The bottom line is people maximize their power with any venue available.

    has to detail her intention every time she opened her mouth.

    This is the crux of it really. It’s why Sarah Silverman can get away with her pottymouth and talk of ‘chinks’ etc, but an Anglo can’t. How can you overcome that? I mean, you can talk sensibly about British influence, or Chinese influence. Christian influence. But not Jewish. It’s always “what’s your intention” and mounting outrage.

    Yes, absolutely! The eyes are one of my favorite topics to research and discuss.

    I am skeptical on the myopia and (natural/genetic) intelligence connection, though. Don't get me wrong, I believe it is a real finding and correlation, but I think the explanation for it is environmental, i.e., people with myopia often read and study more than the average person and are therefore more knowledgeable, successful, etc., but I believe that they are not necessarily ''naturally''/genetically more intelligent, if that makes any sense?

    I agree with Mr. Sailer on nurture vs. nature:


    Sailer summed up his view on nature and nurture in October 2012 as:

    If you analyze a host of real world outcomes using adoption studies, fraternal v. identical twin studies, twins-raised-apart studies, the history of early childhood intervention research, naturally occurring experiments, differences between societies, changes over history, and so forth, you tend to come up with nature and nurture as being about equally important: maybe fifty-fifty. The glass is roughly half-full and half-empty.[30]

    As we have argued below, Lynn's Whites include Mediterranean and Alpine mixtures(although for once he did not include Hispanics with Whites). We have suggested previously, based on the Flynn effect and the IQ scores of Nordics made earlier in this century (as well as other data) that the Nordic IQ score is greater than 100 although it is difficult to say what it is today with politically correct testing. Lynn is skeptical about environmental explanations of this difference. He says "Environmental explanations for the high Jewish [verbal] IQ are difficult to find. Even if it is supposed that Jews provide their children with a good environment for fostering the intelligence of their children, there is a problem for providing an explanation for why they do this". [18] There are no shortages of environmental explanations of the high Jewish IQ, including Jewish urbanization and professional aggressiveness, a culture valuing learning and language (especially learning other languages which improves language cognitive abilities), and a culture fostering success. [19] Lynn's statement is absurd because it is obvious why Jewish parents provide a good environment for fostering their children's intelligence - and that is for success. [20]

    Thanks for the information!

    The link between myopia and genetic intelligence appears to be more biological than environmental.

    I do not have the links, but early development of myopia (before 10-11) was strongly associated with higher intelligence. In fact the early developers of myopia were ten times more likely to have higher intelligence (>130) than the late developers.

    Furthermore, and again I do not have the link, I read that the gene for myopia was tightly linked with a gene for more convolutions of the cerebral cortex.

    Very intriguing data. But what could possibly have selected for myopia?

    I remember once telling my sister that if I had lived in the old west I would have been a feared gunfighter. She told me without flinching that I was legally blind and would have been retreating into the house when the bad guys came to town. Not much in the way of help for the severely myopic before glasses. So what is the selection pressure?

    Hahahahahaha

    Your sister is funny and right!

    Did you spend a lot of time indoors reading when you were a child? Your active imagination seems to indicate that.

    Is this the study you were referring to?

    Myopia, Intelligence, and the Expanding Human Neocortex: Behavioral Influences and Evolutionary Implications http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.3109/00207459908997465 Storfer (1999)

    The link between myopia and high intelligence reported amongst children in the study above appears to suggest that the association between these two characteristics is established in very early childhood. This concept is supported by the research performed by Storfer on 2,720 members of high-IQ organisations (such as Mensa), where findings illustrated that 47% of the females and 33% of the males reported very early onset myopia, that is, by the age of 10. This is compared to the “expected” 5% rate of myopia amongst age cohorts with IQ in the normal range [39]. This result indicates that any association between myopia and high intelligence would appear to involve some very early (possibly even genetic or prenatal) factor.
     
    - https://www.hindawi.com/journals/joph/2015/271746/ Verma (2014)

    I still remain skeptical though, for these reasons:

    This complex hypothesis as to how myopia and high intelligence are related has been met with only lukewarm approval by other researchers. In his recent commentary (2000), Miller was particularly critical of Storfer’s reticence to attribute his observations to genetic mechanisms in a commentary [45]. He refers to Curtin’s work [2] when refuting Storfer’s assertion regarding a “new, brain-centred theory” and also points out that high levels of reading and near-work generally correlate with increased levels of myopia and intelligence [46, 47]. However, he qualifies this statement by pointing out the high heritability of myopia amongst parents and children [48].
    [...]
    Whilst there is a strong body of evidence to support an association between myopia and high intelligence, there are also a range of factors that confound the link between these two phenomena which merit consideration.

    The association between myopia and high intelligence is clouded by arguments such as those raised by Mutti et al., who assert that the link between these two phenomena may simply be an artefact of behaviour [8]. This argument centres on the fact that children who have the behavioural habit of reading more or engaging in other similar intellectual activities would naturally have a higher performance on intelligence tests, while at the same time, have a greater disposition to myopia since they are engaged in a large amount of near-work such as reading[/ and also generally spend more time indoors]. Thereby, Mutti suggests that in this way, myopia and high intelligence may be coincident as a result of behaviour and not actually associated biologically.
     
    - https://www.hindawi.com/journals/joph/2015/271746/ Verma (2014)

    Children with myopia also tended to engage in a lower amount of sports[/outdoor] activity[, which probably means that they read more, etc.]. This result could be due to a more introverted personality among myopes, 64 65 limitations to physical[/outdoor] activities because of wearing glasses, or perhaps a true protective effect for sports activities.
     
    - http://iovs.arvojournals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2162292 Mutti et al. (2002)

    Like your sister (correctly) noted, for persons like yourself, who are legally blind/highly myopic, being indoors/inside the house/in bigger cities is probably the safest and most comfortable place to be, and reading books, reading/using the internet, and developing an active imagination helps one to escape feeling confined, alone, etc.

    Samuel Heilman, a professor of sociology at the City University of New York who specializes in Orthodox Jewry, pointed out that Hasidim did not spend idle time outdoors, at best going “from the shop to the yeshiva to the study hall to the house.”

    Here another recent paper/study:

    Myopia and Cognitive Performance: Results From the Gutenberg Health Study
    Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science October 2016, Vol.57, 5230-5236. doi:10.1167/iovs.16-19507

    http://iovs.arvojournals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2565722 Mirshahi et al. (2016)

    To the best of our knowledge, this is the first population-based study to concurrently assess the link between myopia and cognitive performance considering the educational level as a confounder.
    Our findings suggest that duration of education, which may be directly related to the risk factors for myopia, such as near-work and time spent outdoors, and thus to the direct biological pathways for the control of eye growth, is a stronger predictor of myopia compared with cognitive ability. Consequently, cognitive ability, which may have a significant genetic component, appears to be less directly related to myopia and may be associated with myopia primarily through its impacts on level of education.

    The only "contribution" Judaism ever gave the world and Christianity was the Ten Commandments--nothing more.
    In fact, moslems have more respect for Jesus Christ and his mother Mary than any jews.
    The jewish Talmud is a supremacist text that demeans and marginalizes anyone who is not jewish, relegating them to the status of "animals (livestock) with souls", to be used for the advantage of the jew.
    Of course, moslems celebrate their own form of supremacism, marginalizing "infidels", similar to what is in the jewish Talmud.
    One divergence is the way Jesus Christ is treated....Jews regard Jesus Christ as an apostate, boiling in excrement for eternity while his mother Mary is considered to be a harlot who consorted with a Roman soldier to conceive Jesus.
    Moslems, on the other hand, regard Jesus Christ as a great prophet--not the "Son of God", but a great prophet, nevertheless, while Mary is given a place of high honor, being specifically mentioned in the Qur'an.
    Now which belief system is more hostile to Christianity?

    There is no Arabic word for infidel. The Arabic word “kafir” means one who covers the truth (of God) or is ungrateful to God.

    Of course its Muslims not Jews committing mass beheadings of Ethiopian and Egyptian Christians on Libyan beaches . Muslims not Jews blowing up churches on Easter Sunday in the oldest Coptic Christian community in Egypt .Its Muslims and not Jews kidnapping Christian Iraqi girls and selling them at slave markets. Its Muslims and not Jews who are kidnapping Nigerian Christian girls and selling them as sex slaves. Its Muslims and not Jews who pelt Christians walking to Christmas mass in in Indonesia with bag of Urine . Its Muslims and not Jews who Drive trucks into crowds in the classically Christian nations of Europe . Its Muslims and not Jews who celebrate New Years Eve in Europe with mass rape of Christian girls..........

    Jews work “behind the scenes” getting other to do their “dirty work” for them. From getting the Romans to crucify Christ, to their part in financing both sides of many wars and getting the USA to do its bidding, jews are way MORE dangerous than moslems…
    When push comes to shove, jews WILL form alliances with moslems against western (white) society…

    Thanks for the information!

    The link between myopia and genetic intelligence appears to be more biological than environmental.

    I do not have the links, but early development of myopia (before 10-11) was strongly associated with higher intelligence. In fact the early developers of myopia were ten times more likely to have higher intelligence (>130) than the late developers.

    Furthermore, and again I do not have the link, I read that the gene for myopia was tightly linked with a gene for more convolutions of the cerebral cortex.

    Very intriguing data. But what could possibly have selected for myopia?

    I remember once telling my sister that if I had lived in the old west I would have been a feared gunfighter. She told me without flinching that I was legally blind and would have been retreating into the house when the bad guys came to town. Not much in the way of help for the severely myopic before glasses. So what is the selection pressure?

    She told me without flinching that I was legally blind and would have been retreating into the house when the bad guys came to town.

    Hahahahahaha

    Your sister is funny and right!

    Did you spend a lot of time indoors reading when you were a child? Your active imagination seems to indicate that.

    Is this the study you were referring to?

    Myopia, Intelligence, and the Expanding Human Neocortex: Behavioral Influences and Evolutionary Implications http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.3109/00207459908997465 Storfer (1999)

    The link between myopia and high intelligence reported amongst children in the study above appears to suggest that the association between these two characteristics is established in very early childhood. This concept is supported by the research performed by Storfer on 2,720 members of high-IQ organisations (such as Mensa), where findings illustrated that 47% of the females and 33% of the males reported very early onset myopia, that is, by the age of 10. This is compared to the “expected” 5% rate of myopia amongst age cohorts with IQ in the normal range [39]. This result indicates that any association between myopia and high intelligence would appear to involve some very early (possibly even genetic or prenatal) factor.

    https://www.hindawi.com/journals/joph/2015/271746/ Verma (2014)

    I still remain skeptical though, for these reasons:

    This complex hypothesis as to how myopia and high intelligence are related has been met with only lukewarm approval by other researchers. In his recent commentary (2000), Miller was particularly critical of Storfer’s reticence to attribute his observations to genetic mechanisms in a commentary [45]. He refers to Curtin’s work [2] when refuting Storfer’s assertion regarding a “new, brain-centred theory” and also points out that high levels of reading and near-work generally correlate with increased levels of myopia and intelligence [46, 47]. However, he qualifies this statement by pointing out the high heritability of myopia amongst parents and children [48].
    [...]
    Whilst there is a strong body of evidence to support an association between myopia and high intelligence, there are also a range of factors that confound the link between these two phenomena which merit consideration.

    The association between myopia and high intelligence is clouded by arguments such as those raised by Mutti et al., who assert that the link between these two phenomena may simply be an artefact of behaviour [8]. This argument centres on the fact that children who have the behavioural habit of reading more or engaging in other similar intellectual activities would naturally have a higher performance on intelligence tests, while at the same time, have a greater disposition to myopia since they are engaged in a large amount of near-work such as reading[/ and also generally spend more time indoors]. Thereby, Mutti suggests that in this way, myopia and high intelligence may be coincident as a result of behaviour and not actually associated biologically.

    https://www.hindawi.com/journals/joph/2015/271746/ Verma (2014)

    Children with myopia also tended to engage in a lower amount of sports[/outdoor] activity[, which probably means that they read more, etc.]. This result could be due to a more introverted personality among myopes, 64 65 limitations to physical[/outdoor] activities because of wearing glasses, or perhaps a true protective effect for sports activities.

    http://iovs.arvojournals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2162292 Mutti et al. (2002)

    Like your sister (correctly) noted, for persons like yourself, who are legally blind/highly myopic, being indoors/inside the house/in bigger cities is probably the safest and most comfortable place to be, and reading books, reading/using the internet, and developing an active imagination helps one to escape feeling confined, alone, etc.

    Samuel Heilman, a professor of sociology at the City University of New York who specializes in Orthodox Jewry, pointed out that Hasidim did not spend idle time outdoors, at best going “from the shop to the yeshiva to the study hall to the house.”

    They spend a lot of time indoors, and they’re not Amish or Luddites, so they have air-conditioning,” Dr. Heilman said.

    Upward mobility within academia, government and business circles is automatically assumed by the tribalists to be a reward for superior merit – ‘Jewish genius’ – rather than nepotism or connections. Tribal networks and ‘understandings’ play a powerful unspoken role in career success and immunity from the consequences of failure, incompetence or dishonesty.

    Interesting article. Petras is attempting to be critical but, at the same time, generous (in a limited way). He's giving Jews the benefit of the doubt. As proof, he offers up the surprising statistic that "one third of Israeli Jews would leave now, if they could". Wow. Really? Maybe it's true. Maybe not. But what this statistic means is unclear.

    Sorry, Jim, I remain very unconvinced that any large portion of Jews are ready to abandon their sense of collective superiority or of being 'chosen'. And I'm similarly confident that the vast majority of Jews like their exclusive network just the way it is. For them, it works marvelously. Plus, they're the world's foremost victims. The rare status offers them a host of advantages, protections and opportunities.

    It is possible that some Jews do want to leave Israel since many Jews thrive most when they have a non-Jewish host population in their midst.

    Incredibly, it's possible that Israel is simply 'too Jewish' for a lot of Jews.

    Indeed, many Jews need a non-Jewish majority around them in order to create a vibrant assortment of special, ethnic-based niches for themselves. It's how they earn a living.

    After all, who's going to pay retail?

    Send in the goyim!

    The USA has paid Israel’s bills from the beginning.
    Whenever there was a bit of pushback, like Bush I telling them if they wanted the USA to pay for resettlement of Russian Jews in Israel, they would have to stop settlements. The Jews weren’t having any of it—but they were also outraged at the US!

    And they made a deal with the US and with Russia that the US wouldn’t
    underwrite Russian Jews who wanted to go to the States. Although most of them did. No, these Jews were pawns in the Eretz Israel project to settle the Occupied Territories and create another fact on the ground that dispossessed the Pals. In other words, they were buying bodies—and they wanted teh States to pay for them!

    Another thing: The Zionists cite the Balfour Declaration as an “international agreement” that gives them the whole Land of Israel, so, they say, there is no such thing as the “occupied territories.” All that land has always belonged to us because the Balfour Declaraion says it’s so. Yet the Zionists terrorized the Brits out of Palestine—fundamentally showing that they had zero respect for the empire that had pushed their interests forward—and now have the nerve to cite a century-old piece of paper as an international agreement that trumps all subsequent history, and is still in force.

    What agreement have the Zionists ever even signed? They are scofflaws at the UN. It is beyond chutzpah. The Zionist leaders are actually incoherent, but no one seems to take the time to show how little sense any of them make. They are not “smart.” Instead they have guile and chutzpah. Don’t ever believe a promise made by a Jew/Zionist. They are also very clever at using a religion that they don’t actually belive in. T hat is why it is kind of irrelevant whether any of them are sincere in their religious beliefs. They have made a kind of religion out of their Jewishness itself. It is weird.

    Thanks for the information!

    The link between myopia and genetic intelligence appears to be more biological than environmental.

    I do not have the links, but early development of myopia (before 10-11) was strongly associated with higher intelligence. In fact the early developers of myopia were ten times more likely to have higher intelligence (>130) than the late developers.

    Furthermore, and again I do not have the link, I read that the gene for myopia was tightly linked with a gene for more convolutions of the cerebral cortex.

    Very intriguing data. But what could possibly have selected for myopia?

    I remember once telling my sister that if I had lived in the old west I would have been a feared gunfighter. She told me without flinching that I was legally blind and would have been retreating into the house when the bad guys came to town. Not much in the way of help for the severely myopic before glasses. So what is the selection pressure?

    Here another recent paper/study:

    Myopia and Cognitive Performance: Results From the Gutenberg Health Study
    Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science October 2016, Vol.57, 5230-5236. doi:10.1167/iovs.16-19507

    http://iovs.arvojournals.org/article.aspx?articleid=2565722 Mirshahi et al. (2016)

    To the best of our knowledge, this is the first population-based study to concurrently assess the link between myopia and cognitive performance considering the educational level as a confounder.
    Our findings suggest that duration of education, which may be directly related to the risk factors for myopia, such as near-work and time spent outdoors, and thus to the direct biological pathways for the control of eye growth, is a stronger predictor of myopia compared with cognitive ability. Consequently, cognitive ability, which may have a significant genetic component, appears to be less directly related to myopia and may be associated with myopia primarily through its impacts on level of education.

    I just made another fascinating discovery.

    In the study I cited above, they found that the older people in the study exhibited less myopia than the younger people in the study:


    With respect to age, the results indicated that the older participants exhibited less myopia. This is in line with a recently published meta-analysis of population-based, cross-sectional studies from the European Eye Epidemiology (E3) Consortium which showed that the increase in the level of education in younger population did not fully explain the cohort effect of increasing myopia.32 It is noteworthy with regards to our study that cognitive decline in older people is a different issue compared to the cognitive trajectory in a population based sample and the observation merits further investigation. Regarding the paper by Williams and colleagues32 one has to keep in mind that the conclusion depended on the assumption that the demands of primary education did not change with age. In the oldest participants, the task of primary schools was to provide students with minimal numeracy and literacy, but in the post-WW2 period, the task had become to prepare children to go on to complete secondary and even postsecondary education, demanding higher standards. This generational effect rather than simply the effect of age has to be kept in mind when interpreting associations of age and education.

    I have pretty good eyes, and I was wondering why that is even though I went through the modern, more demanding/structured educational system, and I think I figured out why... I never did my homework -- or more precisely I did it in the mornings before school on the school bus -- and spent my after school afternoons usually playing/being outdoors and meeting friends, etc., instead of being indoors doing my homework, studying, etc.. I guess my laziness saved me from myopia.

    Then I discovered this, which, I think, very likely explains why the older people in the study had myopia less frequently than younger generations. The study was done in Germany and this is the history of homework in the U.S., but I think the same probably applied to/in Germany in the past:

    United States

    Historically, homework was frowned upon in American culture. With few students interested in higher education, and due to the necessity to complete daily chores, homework was discouraged not only by parents, but also by school districts. In 1901, the California legislature passed an act that effectively abolished homework for those who attended kindergarten through the eighth grade. But, in the 1950s, with increasing pressure on the United States to stay ahead in the Cold War, homework made a resurgence, and children were encouraged to keep up with their Russian counterparts. By the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s, the consensus in American education was overwhelmingly in favor of issuing homework to students of all grade levels.[17]

    Just a quick follow-up on the homework situation/debate in Germany.

    I was likely wrong on my assumption:


    The study was done in Germany and this is the history of homework in the U.S., but I think the same probably applied to/in Germany in the past
     
    I tried to find some sources on this information, which was difficult to do, and all of them are in German.
    But basically in Prussia in 1904 the regulations/recommendations were the following, as far as I could ascertain:

    Children aged 6-9: 30-40 minutes of homework daily [and apparently they had school 6 days a week during that time], which translated into 3-4 hours of homework a week for 6-9-year olds.

    Children aged 9-11: 1 hour a day or 6 hours a week

    Children aged 11-13: 2 hours a day or 12 hours a week

    Children aged 13-15: 2 1/2 hours of homework a day

    Children aged 15-18: 3 hours a day or 18 hours a week

    See page 33 https://archive.org/stream/hausaufgabenund00rollgoog#page/n43/mode/2up

    in Hausaufgaben und höhere Schulen by Karl Roller; Published 1907 https://archive.org/details/hausaufgabenund00rollgoog

    So it seems that modern-day Germany actually reduced the number of homework hours per day compared to Prussian times, and only has a 5-day school week, instead of the Prussian 6-day school week. Maybe the total hours of schooling in Prussia were still comparable to today's Germany, since, like in the U.S., all-day schools are more prevalent nowadays. These are the current, hourly recommendations/regulations on homework duration from Germany's most populous state North-Rhine Westphalia per the German Wikipedia page up until 10th grade:


    So sollen im schülerreichsten Land Nordrhein-Westfalen Hausaufgaben so bemessen sein, dass sie pro Tag in folgenden Zeiten selbstständig erledigt werden können:[1]

    in den Klassen 1 und 2 (Grundschule): in 30 Minuten
    in den Klassen 3 und 4 (Grundschule): in 45 Minuten
    in den Klassen 5 und 7 (Sekundarstufe I): in 60 Minuten
    in den Klassen 8 und 10 (Sekundarstufe I): in 75 Minuten.
     

    - https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hausaufgabe#Deutschland

    Compare the recommendation of 75 minutes of homework for grades 8 through 10 in Germany today, with 3 hours of homework a day, six days a week, for 15 to 18-year olds in Prussia. I would not have fared well in Prussia.

    So maybe the myopia epidemic in young people today all around the world, after all, has not so much to do with too much homework, as with the introduction of television, computers, and increasing urbanization, and children spending more time indoors playing on the computer, etc., instead of outdoors. I forgot to mention, that one of the reasons I spent so much time outdoors was probably, that I grew up in a household without a television. So I guess, I also have to thank my progressive parents for saving me from myopia, not just my laziness.

    Poor Students Need Homework

    If affluent kids stopped doing homework, they'd be fine. But for students who are struggling to catch up, it remains indispensable.


    Of all the well-intentioned but unhelpful things people have ever said about education, perhaps the least helpful was from the father of progressive education himself. “What the best and wisest parent wants for his child, that must we want for all the children of the community,” wrote John Dewey. “Anything less is unlovely, and left unchecked, destroys our democracy.”

    As Mr. Sailer noted:


    Nelson Rockefeller was famously dyslexic, like his brothers conservationist and hotelier Laurence, Arkansas governor Winthrop, and Chase banker David (now 101). They all attended a progressive school funded by their father John D. Rockefeller Jr. that was dedicated to the ideas of John Dewey, which may have contributed to their lifelong difficulties in reading. In contrast, their oldest brother, John D. Rockefeller III, received a traditional education and was a fine student at Princeton. Interestingly, JDR III grew up to be a fairly quiet, cultured individual who dedicated himself to respectable philanthropy, while his semi-literate brothers were big personalities who enjoyed lots of success. There’s probably a lesson in this.

    I don’t know if Trump is dyslexic but clearly reading is less important to him than conversation and television.

    Interesting article, Mr. Petras.

    Have you read Edwin H. Sutherland’s White Collar Crime?

    My copy is in a box now, so I can’t even skim it, but three points (one re. the article, two general).

    I was struck by the over-representatlon of the self-elect in some categories of white-collar crime. This was especially startling for patent fraud and theft, many examples from as long ago as the mid-nineteenth century. The blatant thefts by Singer of the eponymous sewing machine company stay in my memory, but many other examples are given. This aspect of the book affected my thinking on ‘them’.

    I could continue on the roles in patent trolling, patent ‘farms’ (actually patent prisons and money farms), and ridiculous extensions to IP ‘rights’, but leave it there for now.

    More generally, Sutherland saw many things as clear crimes held to be such by a social and legal concensus at the time, but people have now been brainwashed to not see them as crimes. These are mainly in the areas of thefts from within and by companies, and violations of labour rights and standards.

    Those changes, or the censored version of the book, including what was censored and why, and the processes, would be great thesis topics.

    This is long enough, comment on a different point to follow.

    Haim Saban contributed tens of millions of dollars to support of the Jewish state’s occupation of Palestine and brutal colonial land grabbing ’settlers’. His wealth is largely based on his ‘genius’ in pushing culturally vacuous Japanese cartoons (Mighty Morphing Power Rangers) on the nation’s children. He is the primary donor to the Democratic Party pushing Israel’s agenda – his number one priority as an American citizen.

    What a strange creature he is!

    The Power Rangers is not a cartoon and it is not Japanese. It is live action (as opposed to animated) with cheap special effects.

    The action sequences, machines, and monsters *are* from a Japanese original, and I would bet that he gave Toho Studios reason to regret that deal.

    Saban’s slaves cut all the rest out (the bits out of masks or in normal clothes) and replaced them with a vibrantly diverse cast (as you’d expect from his politics) doing an American teen drama for pre-teens. The ‘plots’ have nothing to do with the original. Not that I’ve ever watched it, saw a total of abt. twenty min. overseas, that was enough to be obvious. As far as I know, it has never been broadcast in Japan.

    I looked up an article about the US cast after seeing your mention. As one would expect, Saban is rabidly anti-union (sacked those who were vocal about joining), paid them very little, and no residuals.

    Overt and covert Jewish supremacists have embroidered a fake history and legacy of exceptional intelligence ignoring the context of advanced non-Jewish science and cultures, which preceded and later provided Jews with opportunities for education and wealth.

    The danger inherent in all ethno-centric tribes is that they work to dominate majority populations by creating systems of assigning superiority and inferiority. They then use these to justify growing inequalities of wealth, education and political power!
     
    An absolute tour de force!


    It is interesting to note that although Jews have a significant number of genes in common, resulting in a general resemblance between Jews of any kind, Ashkenazi Jews have a substantial number of Nordic genes, captured from Nordics during the Jews' stay in Aryan society. Right across Europe, and also here in the United Sates, it is common to see successful Ashkenazi Jew with fair hair and blue eyes, the George Soros type. [26] The Nordicization of the Ashkenazi Jew though, methodologically invalidates claims of Jewish intellectual superiority because the superiority could well be a product of the Nordic genes which these Jews have captured.

    The following ranking of the Bloomberg Innovation Index is from 2015, and countries rise or fall within the ranking from year to year, but the dominance of the historically majority Protestant nations with Northern European-derived populations in the Top 20 is very consistent

    So I think it’s safe to say that Protestantism is the dominant religious expression of the Anglo-Germanic peoples, and only the Anglo-Germanic peoples. And, getting back to the original northern rebellion against southern corruption, the Anglo-Germanic nations remain the gold standard in honesty and transparency.

    Merton thesis

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merton_thesis

    Merton focuses on English Puritanism and German Pietism as being responsible for the development of the scientific revolution of the 17th and 18th centuries. He explains that the connection between religious affiliation and interest in science is a result of a significant synergy between the ascetic Protestant values and those of modern science.[5] Protestant values encouraged scientific research by allowing science to identify God’s influence on the world and thus providing religious justification for scientific research.[1]

    One of the most destructive Jewish manipulations/seductions of the last century for Western civilization, in my opinion, was probably the promotion of neo-liberal “Chicago School”-style economics, also known as “Freshwater” economics, promoted by Milton Friedman (5 feet short; his fellow Eastern Ashkenazi Jewish Western mind seducer and manipulator, “Objectivist” Ayn Rand, was actually taller than him at 5 feet and 2 inches), which attacked and to a large degree replaced Keynesian economics aka “Saltwater” economics, promoted/founded by John Maynard Keynes (6 feet 6 inches tall)
    [...]
    In the American experience, increased financialization occurred concomitant with the rise of neoliberalism and the free-market doctrines of Milton Friedman and the Chicago School of Economics in the late Twentieth Century.

    Jewish people stood out in a third trajectory in which people invest early in life in high-risk, high-return assets such as stocks and bonds and build wealth quickly while putting less emphasis on homeownership. About one-third of Jews followed this path, compared to no conservative Protestants, 7 percent of mainline Protestants and 4 percent of Catholics.

    Because the correlation between IQ and height is only 0.2, seven foot men would on average be 0.2(139) = 28 IQ points smarter than five foot men. https://brainsize.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/height-iq/
    [...]
    This would put John Maynard Keynes at a circa 20 IQ point advantage to Milton Friedman, just on their height difference.

    Who would you trust with and want to put in charge of designing and managing your economy, Milton Friedman or John Maynard Keynes?

    By the way, this is another most excellent piece/summary on the subject matter:

    Differences between the Eastern European immigrant community in the US and the older German-Jewish establishment — and their commonalities

    http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2017/04/differences-between-the-eastern-european-immigrant-community-in-the-us-and-the-older-german-jewish-establishment-and-their-commonalities/

    [...]
    In short, I agree with Paul Gottfried. The distinction between the Jews deriving from Eastern Europe and the previously existing Jewish community are often important. As noted above, in the absence of the very large number of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, the transformative effects of Jewish activism on the US would not have occurred. The German-Jewish elite did indeed have influence far beyond their numbers, but their tiny numbers and relatively conservative attitudes would have prevented them from having the transformative effects that their much more numerous—and much more radical—Eastern European cousins had.

    It’s ironic that the Madoff scandal, with its tales of exclusive country club life and high-priced international hedge funds, has been so destructive to an organization that was founded to be the voice of the Jewish masses. The AJCongress was founded in 1918 and became a populist counterbalance to the American Jewish Committee, which was dominated by the wealthy and conservative German-Jewish establishment.

  79. Sam J. says:

    “…Plenty of Jews are on your side, even if they do not agree 100% with you in everything, if you don’t hate and distrust them by default…”

    Where are they? How many, two, three…? This is of course the same old lie. Les, lies, lies, all you can expect from Jews.

    What you can expect from Jews is what you’ve gotten from them in the past. They use group cohesion to infiltrate choke points in the economy and the political system then loot and and destroy the country. They do so until the risk of staying gets too high then move on to another country.

    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 use the simplest of logic to determine this. Form follows function, Occam’s Razor. Their behavior is exactly like psychopaths. Their religious beliefs are exactly like the internal dialog of psychopaths. I don’t know but if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and swims like a duck. It’s a duck and the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths. The MOST IMPORTANT PART is that the behavior of the Jews as a group over time can not be reliably separated from the behavior of psychopaths. Even if I’m wrong their behavior is the same so they should be treated as psychopaths. A very dangerous, powerful group with no empathy towards anyone but other Jews. They killed 60 million Russians. We must be vigilant. If they are able to past performance shows they will kill hundreds of millions of citizens in the US if they feel that they can get away with it. If they make a move to take over and start rounding people up remember what Solzhenitsyn said.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

    You’re going to have to fight even though you know you personally will not survive. They don’t have the personal to take us all on. Just like they can’t take Afghanistan or Iraq. They just don’t have the man power. Remember the past. Every time the Jews have had the power to do so they committed mass genocide against the people in the territory they control.

    Interesting article, with a central contradiction.
    He wants to portray Jewish intelligence as some kind of myth, then lists all the uber-successful Jews. True, success isn't always achieved honestly but you still have to be pretty bright to get there.

    Actually, psychiatric studies in the past have shown that ruthlessness can make up to some degree for intelligence.

    True, there are some extraordinary wealthy Jewish personages in the United States but as professor Petras points out these people are not exactly what you would call “Classical Judaics” either via religion or heritage. They simply succeeded in the narrow focus of creating wealth and have been assigned to the category of being Jewish, though most if not all would probably not understand any aspect of traditional Judaism if it rolled over them in a Mack truck…
