You may or may not have noticed it, but the World has a funny old way of working.

For thousands of years Anti-Semitism had been a pretty established thing, then, along came the Nazis, and suddenly, just a few short years later, everybody was ready to cut the Jews plenty of slack.

Yes, the Nazis’ big achievement, and one they were certainly not happy about, was getting the world to — kind of, sort of — love the Jews.

But it doesn’t stop there. Israel, which was — kind of, sort of — founded on that upsurge of post-WII love and sympathy, and which was supposed to provide a happy homeland for any Jews that felt the need for it, is increasingly having something of an unintended side effect.

Here’s CBN News (Christian Broadcasting News) reporting on recent developments:

Phone video of attacks against Jews in cities across the U.S. shared on social media shows how Palestinian supporters are bringing the war against Israel and against Jews to America’s streets.

Jews around the world know from experience that when Israel is attacked and fights back, they become even bigger targets for antisemitic violence.
A Jewish man was savagely beaten in New York’s Diamond District. Another in Times Square.

In Los Angeles, a man is being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after an antisemitic attack on Jewish diners. Ten cars full of Palestinian supporters rolled up and tried to attack them as they ate outside in Beverly Hills.

Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

In Canada, a Jew was seen being chased in broad daylight.

In Florida, a pro-Palestinian caravan displayed the words, “Hitler was right.”

And in Hallandale Beach, Florida, a man yelled antisemitic remarks at a rabbi in front of a synagogue. He later returned so he could dump a bag of human feces in front of the building while shouting, “Jews should die!”
Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center says, “The language of the caravans that are going through Jewish areas with antisemitic slogans saying ‘we’re going to rape your wives and children,’ and things like that…there’s a sense that it’s open season and fair game against Jews.”

And this is just America!

If this is what is happening in the number one philosemitic country in the World, imagine how bad it must be elsewhere. In fact, it’s getting to the point where a lot of people are even starting to re-evaluate that shitbag Adolf Hitler:

The Anti-Defamation League has documented antisemitism on multiple social media platforms, including 17,000 tweets that used variations of the phrase, “Hitler was right”, and 193 antisemitic incidents in the week after the fighting in the Middle East began.

The fact that Hitler was almost everybody’s enemy (check out his genocide of Russian POWs and his Hunger Plan to starve tens of millions of non-Jews to death) is now lost in the weirdly “woke” narrative of opposing the “colonialist,” “apartheid” state of Israel.

ORDER IT NOW

I’m not going to get hung up on the details, but if you think there should be a Jewish state, then Palestine seems a pretty reasonable place to put it. It could have been put in a number of other places, of course, and in fact, Madagascar, Patagonia, Uganda, and some others were all once mentioned as possible locations at various times. But obviously Palestine was the best “compromise” to get the anti-statist religious Jews on board with the project.

Then, having placed the Jewish state in a difficult-to-defend bit of topography — Palestine has historically served as a convenient corridor for various conquering armies — the seizure of more and more land, such as the West Bank and the Golan Heights from the non-compliment neighbours, became more and more of a necessity. The result of all this is that if the Jews lose, they no longer exist there, but if they don’t lose they just end up looking like the bad guy — wherever they live.

A couple of years back in an article titled “Winning On the Wrong Side of History,” I explored this problem:

The conundrum that Israel faces is very simple. It is this: If you do colonialism and apartheid in the post-colonial and post-apartheid age, then people are going to notice. But alternatively, if you don’t do colonialism and apartheid in a region where you are a tiny, hated minority then you are dead.

I then put it in a nutshell:

In a world where Leftist values of “anti-racism” and narratives of “White privilege” dominate, Israel’s realpolitik approach is going to run out of road pretty soon.

Opening up that nutshell today, and there’s an even smaller nutshell inside. This is how I would put it now:

Israel, because of when it is and where it is, has to be what it is, and what this is, is effectively a giant machine generating hatred for Jews.

If only the Hitler-loving, Jew-obsessed Alt-Right had been bigger and more powerful than it was allowed to become, there might still be some chance of generating a ‘counter current’ of love and sympathy to compete with the toxic Anti-Semitism that Israel’s humble existence inadvertently pours out into the World. Maybe clamping down on Richard Spencer, Greg Johnson, Andrew Anglin, Mike Enoch et alia was the biggest mistake the ADL and SPLC ever made!

    Congrats on a cogent analysis; but I fail to see why I should be concerned as it is none of my business.

  3. If America’s Jews are copping it from cultural enrichers then they fully deserve it, having masterminded their presence in America.

  4. Israel’s humble existence

    Hmm…

    Lot of twaddle.

    The Arab leadership and most of their populations had basically capitulated by the time of the Oslo Accords in 1993. A reservation called Palestine had been set up. Yasser Arafat was on the way to becoming Chief Sitting Bull. Liberal Israelis were kissing the Arabs’ asses and most of the other Israelis were hell bent on making money. Then the Israeli leadership and organised world Jewry stuffed it up. They continued to steal the Arab land and torment them. They have only got themselves to blame. And the ordinary Jew world wide pays for it.

  6. For thousands of years Anti-Semitism had been a pretty established thing

    You see, this is the kind of thing you believe when your frame of reference is limited …

    So, what did the Muslims do for the Jews?

    https://www.thejc.com/comment/opinion/so-what-did-the-muslims-do-for-the-jews-1.33597

    Islam saved Jewry. This is an unpopular, discomforting claim in the modern world. But it is a historical truth. The argument for it is double. First, in 570 CE, when the Prophet Mohammad was born, the Jews and Judaism were on the way to oblivion. And second, the coming of Islam saved them, providing a new context in which they not only survived, but flourished, laying foundations for subsequent Jewish cultural prosperity – also in Christendom – through the medieval period into the modern world.

  7. Without Judeophobia Judaism loses its raison d’etre. The goyim are Amalek, the Eternal Enemy of the Jews, just awaiting the opportunity to kill and torment the innocent Beloved of God (ie themselves). Therefore the true Judaic ceaselessly seeks to foment Jew-hatred so that the cult can maintain itself in its natural habitat-a sea of mutual loathing. Hence Israel’s UTTER contempt for International Law and basic decencies in its dealings with the imprisoned Palestinians. Hence the spittle-flying RAGE of the Zionazi when they are faced with someone who rejects their self-delusions and opposes their inhumanity-the ‘antisemite’.

    I know this guy, his name is Semite Shekelstain, he is a nice guy always wanting to make world better place, to heal it from its wounds which the heavy burden of history has left upon it
    He likes to go to bars and drink, a sociable souls that he is
    So far he has been thrown out from 109 bars with no fault of his own
    That is just a terrible, terrible anti-Semitism
    Poor Semite one could not have imagined a more selfless soul always thinking about welfare of others before his own

    Bullshit. Please go and live in Israel you poorly disguised red sea pedestrian.

    Really…..

    I’m pretty sure they can do alright if they leave a few square miles alone.

    But if you believe Yahweh has promised your chosen people the Nile to the Euphraites, and it is His will that you conquer….that might create an issue.

    Yeah, or he’ll bring up the lampshades again or the soap, or the tattooed Human skin or… Adolf Hitler is the most lied about human being in history.

  14. anon[315] • Disclaimer says:

    You are right Israel is a machine that churns out antisemitism.

    Here is Tom Friedman in N YTimes 25th May 2021

    “Unless we preserve at least the potential of a two-state solution …..

    Because without that horizon — without any viable hope of separating Israelis and Palestinians into two states for two peoples — the only outcome left will be one state in which the Israeli majority dominates and Palestinians in East Jerusalem and the West Bank will be systematically deprived of equal rights so that Israel can preserve its Jewish character.” NYTimes

    Israel or a Jewish state can exist only as Jewish state by becoming and staying oppressive ,exploitative, discriminatory and above all by maintaining the ability to respond with disproportionate fatal forces to rock throwing children with total impunity

    ( How come Liberia or Sudan ’s leader can be accused of crime agisnt genocide for hurting its own people but not Israel for killing g its own people ? I see they are not Israels . They have ben under apartheid system of colonizer imposed system .)

    What is there in Judaism that non -Jews automatically are reduced to being a powerless resident with no dignity, a statistical number, just an invisible face of an apartheid system ?

    Didn’t Friedman see it coming ? Where was he when Bush while licking the balls of Netanyahu and Sharon salivating for war against Iraq tried tepidly for a 2 state solution? If we rewind the tapes we will see the TV footages and pictures out of DC always accompanied by gaggles of neocons blaming Palestine with hubris for not accepting the latest Israeli version of Oslo and not accepting t the second class third class status imposed by Israel. The apartheid was the aim or without it there was the expulsion . Tom Friedman was part of that movement which defined also Jewish -American expectation out of the Iraq war also – kind of an expected additional benefit . Tom Freedman wanted to calm the Arab Street -the Angry Arab . He had American money blood and the planes .

    Translation:

    I’m not going to get hung up on the details, but if you’re going to steal someone’s land and wipe them off it, you might as well do it there, right? Or to put it another way: if someone’s going to steal that house, it might as well be you, right?

  16. @Mulga Mumblebrain

    Even recently I hear the merry song “Josh’a fought the battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down”. The song doesn’t mention that Joshua on victory immediately killed killed every man, woman, child and baby in Jericho then proceeded to Ai and did the same, and on and on.
