“If you have the law, hammer the law. If you have the facts, hammer the facts. If you have neither the law nor the facts, hammer the table”.

Anonymous legal advice

Reports from Israeli press outlets this weekend show that the Jewish State fears the ICC’s (International Criminal Court) decision to move forward with an investigation into whether Israel committed war crimes in the Palestinian territories. Such a probe may expose current and former government officials and military personnel to prosecution on the global stage.

The ICC will investigate Israel’s policy of settling its citizens in the West Bank, its actions during the 2014 war in Gaza, and its response to Palestinian protests on Gaza’s border beginning in March of last year. The ICC will examine indiscriminate shooting by Hamas and other Palestinian groups into Israeli cities as well.

Israel plans to refuse to cooperate with the ICC, although such a move may put a long list of Israeli officials, potentially including the prime minister, defense ministers, IDF chiefs, the heads of the Shin Bet security service, and military officers as well as low-ranking soldiers, at risk of international arrest warrants if, in the absence of a state response, the ICC proceeds with the prosecution of individuals for the alleged crimes.

Israel’s reaction to the ICC’s top prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s decision to investigate is instructive. Instead of responding ethically and showing a willingness to defend its actions, Israel is hiding behind legalistic Talmudic arguments that seek to refute the ICC’s legitimacy and deny its jurisdiction over Israel and Israeli war criminals.

Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s defense is based on ICC’s supposed ‘lack of jurisdiction.’ On Saturday, Mandelblit said that Israel “is a democratic state of law, obligated and committed to respecting international law and humanitarian values. This commitment has stood strong for decades, through all the challenged and tough times Israel has faced. It is rooted in the character and values of the State of Israel and guaranteed by a strong and independent justice system…there is no place for international judicial intervention in such a situation.”

Is this really an accurate description of Israel? If Israel is ‘democratic state of law’ that adheres to a universalist value system as Mandelblit insists, why is Israel so afraid of the ICC looking into its behaviour? The reality of Israel contradicts Mandelblit’s position. We are dealing with a criminal state, an institutional ethnic cleanser that explores barbarian tactics locking millions of people in the largest open-air prisons known to man.

Just to prove how ‘ethical’ the Jewish State is not, Israeli Transportation Minister Bezalel Smotrich called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to give the Palestinian Authority a 48-hour ultimatum to pull its petition to the ICC or see the Ramallah-based political authority “torn down.”

ORDER IT NOW

Blue and White Party Chairman, Benny Gantz, also attacked the ICC’s decision. Citing his decades of military service, including as the IDF’s 20th chief of staff, Gantz unequivocally stated that “the IDF is one of the most moral armies in the world.” Gantz forgot to mention that he is himself a suspected war criminal and may be charged by the ICC. In 2016 we learned that the District Court of the Hague was holding a hearing to determine whether to hear a war crimes case against Gantz relating to his command decisions during the 2014 Gaza War.

Former ‘justice’ minister, Ayelet Shaked, called the move “a political, hypocritical and predictable decision.” Shaked said the ICC “has no authority” to open the probe. She urged the government to “fight the court with all the tools at its disposal.”

PM Netanyahu called the ICC’s announcement “a dark day for truth and justice.” What, one may wonder, would Netanyahu consider a shining moment for truth and justice?

As we now see and could have anticipated, the official Israeli response in opposition to the ICC’s probe is legalistic as opposed to ethical. Israeli officials made public a legal opinion by Mandelblit arguing that the court does not have jurisdiction to conduct an investigation. Instead of attempting to refute the substance of the complaint, Israel and its officials invest in a wall-to-wall attempt to deny the court’s jurisdiction.

The rationale for Israel’s defiance is pretty obvious. Israeli decision makers are clever enough to grasp the prospective outcome of such an investigation. It would drain whatever is left of the Israeli military’s will to fight. Israeli combatants – platoons, pilots, drone operators, commanders- would know that their actions have legal consequences and as a result might be reluctant to execute military orders. The ICC may have closed the door on Israel’s military options and strategy. For a country that survives by the sword and invests in the ‘War between the Wars,’ the ICC investigation is understood as a lethal threat.

I am not holding my breath for the ICC to accomplish its job. I anticipate intensive Lobby efforts to interfere with the court’s work. However, by now we know that an attempt by Jewish power to silence opposition to Jewish power, can only be realised through the manifestation of such power. In Britain, for instance, the Israel Lobby and its stooges within politics and media exposed itself through its relentless war against Corbyn and his party. By the time Corbyn and his party were literally wiped out, every Brit knew who runs this country for real.

The Lobby is more than welcome to expose its sharp teeth and interfere with the ICC’s work. It may destroy the ICC, but Israel won’t be vindicated of its crimes against Palestinians, as these crimes are committed in the open for everyone to see.

    ICC Violates International Law — Has No Jurisdiction

    The ICC has no jurisdiction without a signatory nation. The objective facts are:
    — Israel is not a signatory nation.
    — The Palestinian Authority is not a nation. (1)

    The Attorney General’s office released a statement Friday afternoon announced that Mandelblit had completed a legal ruling on the ICC’s right to adjudicate matters in Israel, typically at the behest of the Palestinian Authority and its allies.

    In his [legal ruling], Mandelblit determined that the ICC has no jurisdiction to rule on matters in Israel – which is not a party to the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court – because the Palestinian Authority is not a state

    The smartest move Israel could make is suing the the ICC via U.S. Courts for willfully & maliciously violating International Law. One suspects the ICC will end its support anti-Israel terrorists when the individual members are placed on the OFAC Specially Designated Nationals [SDN] financially blocked list.

    Remember: The ICC is not above the law!

    Constitutionality and rule-of-law have never been a problem for Jews: they’re Special https://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/teaching-holocaust/#comment-3347185
    From the Letters of Rabbi Stephen Wise:

    “(London, 1945 [probably sometime between May and July 1945])
    . . . talk and lunch . . . with Justice [Robert] Jackson. He’s a real person, I don’t wonder that Roosevelt began thinking of him as a possible successor. He . . .has grand and spacious ideas on the Nuremberg trials in mid-October, with Weizmann, Goldmann or S.S.W. [Stephen S. Wise] as Jewish witnesses to present the Jewish Case –not permitted as Amicus Curiae!

    In itself it becomes the greatest trial in history, with what Jackson calls its broad departure from Anglo-Saxon legal tradition. Retroactively “aggressive war-making” becomes criminally punishable–with membership in the Gestapo prima facie proof of criminal participation. He seems to think very well of Felix Frankfurter and glorifies Ben Cardozo and Brandeis.”

    Aggressive war making you say. Ha! The Gestpo and SS were the most sadistic warriors this side of Genghis Kahn. This from every country invaded by Germany. Not one country had anything nice to say about the pure race, who rounded up Slavs and worked them to death with such glee.
    The shear relentlessness of their cruelty of rounding up and shooting villagers, men, women, children is unprecedented in modern warfare.
    You know if the trials produced anything it laid bare all of the duplicity of those soldiers who were given orders to murder. They never denied it. None at Nuremberg denied what the Germans did it was just who to blame for it.

  16. Astonishing, just astonishing.

    Ron said of Taubman that he/she/it is “sincere,” and that is the most disturbing thing: Fran actually believes the shit that she writes.

    In this particular comment series, notice what Fran did:

    The topic = the criminality of the Jewish state
    Taubman declared, in effect, that “the rules don’t apply to Jews / the Jewish state”
    StoC responded by quoting Rabbi Stephen Wise who wrote in a letter to his daughter that the judge at Nuremberg had pre-ordained that the ages-old rules of jurisprudence would NOT apply at Nuremberg; that a novel charge would be created ex post facto etc etc.

    In other words, the Jews who were most instrumental in starting WWII and in causing so much death and destruction, pre-arranged, by flattering a venal judge, to further punish Germans for crimes that were not crimes at the time the action was taken; in summary, the normal rules of civilization did not apply to Jews.

    Rabbi Wise set a precedent that Netanyahu — and Taubman — rely upon today to exculpate Jews.

    But Taubman did not make reference to that chain of argument, he/she/it once again reached into her “mine” and devised specious — and also mendacious — claims.

    It is a mystery to me why Jews take so many advantages of the opportunity to prove that Hitler was right.

    It is funny that you argue in a manner that is quintessentially Jewish, pure fallacy, whataboutisms, ad hominem. To this end Hitler called you out perfectly close to 100 years ago now:

    The more I argued with them, the better I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn’t help, they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes which, if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know exactly what you were talking about. Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again. But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn’t help but agree, and if you believed that this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day. The Jew had not the slightest recollection of the day before, he rattled off his same old nonsense as though nothing at all had happened, and, if indignantly challenged, affected amazement; he couldn’t remember a thing, except that he had proved the correctness of his assertions the previous day.

    Ludicrous attempt at misdirection.

    You live in the U.S., in a state, in county, possibly in a city. As pass through these jurisdictions, you must obey those laws.

    Exactly equivalent — The ICC is an international body that must follow international law. That international law states that ICC can only operate in “nations” that have joined.

    Under your theory there is a special privilege for Muslims who can commit crimes (rape, murder, steal, and forcibly converision) without penalty. You believe international law applies only to Infidels, such as Christians and Jews.

    Good luck with your non-viable “Muslim Privileges” defense…. I hope you like spending time in the pokey.

The reality of Israel contradicts Mandelblit’s position. We are dealing with a criminal state, an institutional ethnic cleanser that explores barbarian tactics locking millions of people in the largest open-air prisons known to man.

    This is a bald face lie, and this is why Israel does not want to be judged by the ICC. There are 1.7 million Arab Palestinians citizens in Israel, who are doctors, lawyers and heads of hospitals.
    Stop your bullshit propaganda.

    Gaza is a prison because Hamas Jihadis abuse children ( diverting building materials ) to dig tunnels to Israeli Jewish day schools. Just ask Egypt why they keep their border with Gaza closed.
    Hamas is a genocidal movement against Jews. If the Shia’s ever win they would destroy not only the Jews but all the Jewish holy sites. They have done this before.

    However, by now we know that an attempt by Jewish power to silence opposition to Jewish power, can only be realised through the manifestation of such power. In Britain, for instance, the Israel Lobby and its stooges within politics and media exposed itself through its relentless war against Corbyn and his party. By the time Corbyn and his party were literally wiped out, every Brit knew who runs this country for real.

    Blaming Jewish power for Labour’s defeat is laughable doubly laughable coming from you who just had your head handed to you by not only the British electorate but by the Labour party itself for these bogus theories of Israel as a criminal state.

    It is shocking (to me) that it never occurred to you (someone with your brain power) that the majority of people in Britain reject you and your ideas on their merit and truthfulness, not because the Jewish lobby and Jewish media control their every thought. You must think people are so stupid.

    The Palestinians as victims is a phony cause. Do you see anyone calling for a boycott of Sony TV’s from for plight of Ulghurs Muslims in China? I bet you have a ton of stuff from China. Shame on you. Boycott China. Those Muslims are in interment camps.

    What about the genocide of the Rohinga muslims in Burma?

    The Palestinians are props, to advance Jew hatred and the conspiracy that Jews as a unified group like robots create all the chaos in the world for their own control and power. This is the enchilada not the poor Palestinians.

    And people see right thru the Palestinian victim lie. That you tried to make the election about Jew power was why Labour lost. Palestine and the Palestinians are not what people care about. They rejected you and your ideas. They care about their families, their homes. their neighborhood and their country, not you, the Jews, or the Palestinians. Its a joke.

    They then went into overdrive after the UN (of which the ICC is part of) granted them statehood.

    Now they’re complaining about the same organization that granted them fraudulent legitimacy to begin with. Just so ironic. Maybe the ICC won’t get very far but at least the terrorist state of Israel has been put on notice.

    Since rationality requires that cause come before effect, “First” is the crucial factor.

    Who declared war on whom first, Jews or Germans?

    What does the evidence show? What is the sequence of events?

    –>Jan. 30, 1933 Adolf Hitler is appointed chancellor of Germany

    –>by or on Feb. 14, 1933 Louis Brandeis, world leader of zionists, states directive to Rabbi Stephen Wise: “All Jews must leave Germany . . . All 587,000 German Jews must leave, none should remain.”

    –>by or on Mar. 24, 1933, leaders of “International Jewry” cause to be published in the Jewish-owned British newspapers Daily Express the banner headline: “Judea Declares War on Germany”
    —–>There is no document announcing that “Germany Declares War on Jews.”

    ergo, Jews are the aggressors.

    I’m not enough of a philosopher nor pilpul practitioner to discuss whether an aggressor can simultaneously be the victim.

    It is a documented fact that Jews and others produced documents stating the intention to destroy the German people

    –>Theodore Kaufmann, Germany Must Perish;

    –>Henry Morgenthau, Jr., The Morgenthau Plan;

    –>in addition to the US Department of Interior HAER report that named Erich Mendelsohn and Jewish-run Hollywood movie studio set designers as instrumental in planning, designing, rehearsing and executing the firebombing of the cities and homes of working-class German civilians, including “infants in cribs;”

    –>the April 3, 1945 bombing of captive laborers at Nordhausen by Allied forces;
    subsequent liberation of Nordhausen by US 104th Infantry Division and “discovery” of several thousands of dead and wounded, which was blamed on the Germans; recorded in photographs and videos, which images were presented as evidence against Germans at Nuremberg Trials




    In summary, the timeline and evidence demonstrate that Jews were the aggressors.

    Persons who make that argument cannot, therefore, be considered “insane.”

    On the matter of jurisdiction I understand that the prosecutor is still asking the opinion of the Court on this. However having gone this far would signal that she is already pretty clear on that point, unless she is playing games.

    Dr. Aeyal Gross, a member of the Buchmann Faculty of Law at Tel Aviv University, already came up with his opinion on this five years ago. He wrote (in Haaretz of the 19th of January 2015):

    From the moment in November 2012 that the UN General Assembly recognized Palestine as a non-member state (its previous status was non-state observer), it was clear that the current prosecutor would have difficulty not accepting Palestine as a state, and it is now recognized as the 123rd state to join the court.

    The UN secretary-general, the president of the ICC Assembly of States Parties and the court registrar have all recognized the Palestinian affiliation, and so did the prosecutor. Now the gap between the Israeli and international stance is becoming eminently clear

    Yes the least one can hope for is that Israel and the US show once again that they are international outlaws.

    Every college student understands that professors can simultaneously be intellectual and incompetent. This is an excellent example:

    His proposed legal opinion can easily be blown out of the water by one simple fact. The UN violated International Law when UNGA voted to intentionally recognize a non-nation as a state. A criminal act by the UN cannot launder illegal activity by the ICC.

    [Adrian] … the least one can hope for is that Israel and the US show once again that they are international outlaws.

    I respectfully disagree. The least we can hope for is, serious nations:
    — Admitting that the ICC and UN are international outlaws.
    — Enforcing ‘International Law’ by disbanding both mob-like criminal organizations.

    The phrase that best describes the UN is, “Helpless, Hapless, & Hopeless”. Despite its intent, the UN has created more violence and suffering than it has prevented. World Peace and the human condition will be vastly improved by its absence.

    I particularly recommend this sentence of it to your attetion:

    Ultimately, it will be up to the Court itself to determine the scope and validity of its jurisdiction.

    You wrote:

    “Serious nations” where some politicians entertain this self serving notion of international law are already thin on the ground. They will be even rarer when the money runs out, that is to say when the US dollar loses its status as a reserve currency.

  41. I smell goaty apocrine sweat from hairy Jew State pits. The panic engulfing their primitive culture is entirely comprehensible for a change.

    The ICC is one forum. Its jurisdiction is solely universal-jurisdiction crimes. That means any crime denounced by the ICC entails a legal obligation on all states to prosecute or extradite the suspects. So even if the Jew State nukes the Hague and assassinates the prosecutors and judges, any court in any country can lock up Jew State genocidaires for trial.

    This is the endgame. Bensouda has played it well. She invoked the threshold test to skip investigation of a less grave Israeli crime, provoking worldwide outrage and challenges to the court’s integrity. Now she has scoped her investigation to include the gravest crime on earth: the crime against humanity of extermination of Palestine’s indigenous peoples.

    > “This is a bald face lie, and this is why Israel does not want to be judged by the ICC. There are 1.7 million Arab Palestinians citizens in Israel, who are doctors, lawyers and heads of hospitals.”

    Palastinian “citizens” of a brutal occupier who are prevented from using the same roads as the “jewish” settler collonisers, who are impeeaded in their movement to and from work, who’s homes are being systematically demolished, whos children are kidnapped and held by the forces of the occupation, who are brutalised, defiled, disenfranchised and in every way oppressed.

    That there are doctors among them is to their credit, NOT to yours!

    > “Gaza is a prison because Hamas Jihadis abuse children ( diverting building materials ) to dig tunnels to Israeli Jewish day schools. Just ask Egypt why they keep their border with Gaza closed.
    Hamas is a genocidal movement against Jews. If the Shia’s ever win they would destroy not only the Jews but all the Jewish holy sites. They have done this before.”

    I recently met a young girl (about 17/18) from what you call “israel”. A very lovely girl who’d been indoctrinated into the same beliefs/perspective as you are expressing here, regarding Palestinians, who she thought of as imhuman monsters and rapists.
    It’s all part of the conditioning.

    The fear which your society has inculcated into you is helps you rationalise what is OBVIOUSLY a brutal and illegal occupation characterised by genocide (progroms), ethnic cleansing and the deliberate maiming of children. – If you were not taught to fear “the enemy” you may come to love him.

    And untill you begin to look for yourself at your Nations’ record (which goes back long before your invassion of Palestine) you will continue to support the kind of brutality you perceive and deplore in others.

    Instead of using a your energy to deflect attention from it, give Your attention to it!

    Look and see for yourself, stop taking other peoples word for things.

    As for your inability to comprehend what others write, I get the feeling your in too much of a hurry to deflect attention away grom “israel”. Stress and/or excitement can easily cause one to miss things – misread, misunderstand, misdirect.

    A123, in 36, your comment is nonsense on so many levels it’s actually profound, in a loony inverse fashion. Where to begin? Recognition of a nation is based on nations recognizing you. If the UN member nations formally affirm their recognition of Palestine, that nation is recognized. End of story. The UNGA makes customary international law with its declarations, so your contention that they broke it is both dumb and unsubstantiated. Are you trying to say that the UNGA has acted against some general priciple of international law? Which principle? Self-determination of peoples? No, it wouldn’t be that, would it? Right of all peoples to their natural wealth and resources? No, not that either. I’m afraid I’m drawing a blank here, A123, What the fuck are you on about?

  45. The easy way to decapitate the Israeli command structure is by prosecuting their systematic and widespread torture. The CAT is tightly drafted – perhaps the most advanced universal-jurisdiction regime in conventional international law – and the Jewish State ratified it. They’re on the hook, and continuity of obligations keeps the genocidal Zionists squirming there.

    You are completely ignorant not just a little. Arab citizens of Israel have identical rights to Jews, I mean exactly the same.

    Palastinian “citizens” of a brutal occupier who are prevented from using the same roads as the “jewish” settler collonisers, who are impeeaded in their movement to and from work, who’s homes are being systematically demolished, whos children are kidnapped and held by the forces of the occupation, who are brutalised, defiled, disenfranchised and in every way oppressed.

    This is a lie, you are referring to the Arab Palestinians who status remains in limbo, for failure to reach a consensus on a Palestinian state.
    You are not even close. No Arab Israeli citizen has to use special roads.

    I recently met a young girl (about 17/18) from what you call “israel”. A very lovely girl who’d been indoctrinated into the same beliefs/perspective as you are expressing here, regarding Palestinians, who she thought of as imhuman monsters and rapists.
    It’s all part of the conditioning.

    I do not think that Palestinians are monsters or rapist. Palestinians are like Jews, good, bad and in-between. I have many Muslim friends. I do not hate Palestinians I hate the Jihadist leaders that reap millions, billions into Swiss banks, leaving their people with no hope, for their own selfish ideology. They do not attempt to rationally deal with Israel and come to terms with their status of losers of every war they have started. Instead they insist on Jihad of expelling the Jews and making Israel another failed muslim state with no Jews. It is a religious war. They want only Islamic holy sites, for muslims, like Mecca and Medina. No other religions recognized. Islam is a political system where Muslims have to rule. Jihadist tend to be irrational.

    It sounds to me like the reverse you seem to think all Israelis are brutal apartheid occupiers of Arab land that keep Arabs in concentration camps. You should visit Israel, and you would see how propagandized and brainwashed you are.

    Here are some videos to help educate you. The first video showing Palestinian wealth in the West Bank, unlike your vision of imprisoned people by ‘Brutal Occupiers”. I will concede that many of the Settlers are violent and extreme similar to the Jihadist.
    The second video is a little rebuttal of George Galloway dispelling the myths about Israel and its creation.
    I am a rational person, I have many family members living in Israel and in the IDF. They are also rational kind people, not brutal occupiers.
    Go and see for yourself. Don’t listed to garbage. People are people.

    Rich Palestinians?

    While shooting our "Unmasking Israeli Settlers" series in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank). One of the things that really stood out was the insane levels of wealth in the Palestinian territory. We saw palaces everywhere, not just in Ramallah, but in tiny villages scattered across the land. We tried to find the apartheid roads and instead I found Israeli roads in the West Bank that were overflowing with Palestinian cars, stupidly beautiful Palestinian cars…. We were overtaken by a Ford Mustang, a Mercedes G550, Range Rovers, Jaguars, Mercedes, BMWs… all brand new!In this episode we share some of the wealth we witnessed driving around Palestinian areas. We are not for a second suggesting that all Palestinians live at this level of opulence, far from it, but the perception that most people have of this area is categorically wrong.We'd like to thank Boomerang – Fighting for Israel for some of the footage.

    Oh child. You have entirely inverted the facts to suit an agenda propogated by “your people” since long before “israel” declared itself a “nation state” on the bloodied, ethnically cleased soil of Palestine.

    Read a book called The Controvercy of Zion by Douglas Reed (it’s available for free download in several formats at archive.org)
    It may prove difficult reading for you on a personal level (top-tip on this: Never take things personally in life or you will mids the joy of living). Read anyway, even when you disagree with the author, read. Remember to breath.

    What’s special about this particular book is that it traces “judaism” back to its roots and the appearence of the Levites in Judah.

    Propaganda videos made by “israel” I can live without. I’ve seen and read enough “israeli” propaganda, which is spewed forth on an almost daily basis by that self-declared “state. In the political west we ate saturated by it.

    In the meantime those “jehadists” you accuse of using Palestinians as human sheilds are as emprisoned in Gaza as are all residents there, denied basic human rights, sprayed with untreated sewage by that “most moral army” the israeli occupation force… by your friends, in fact.

    “Israel” has stolen billions of dollars from Palestine in taxes and natural resources. Has stolen their land, hs denided them the right to return to their homes, has deliberately blinded, cripled and imprisoned their children as policy!

    Either you are deluberately ignoring these crimes and atrocities, or you have accepted “israels” constant lies as fact, without question.

    The prohibition on Palestinian travel on Route 443 was implemented first by placing physical obstructions – iron gates, concrete blocks, checkpoints, or a combination of these – and later by army patrols, which punished Palestinians who violated the prohibition. Subsequently, the Israel Police also began to enforce the prohibition, issuing tickets, on one pretext or another, to Palestinians using the road. Checkpoints were erected at either end of the road – (Maccabim Checkpoint where it enters Israeli territory and Atarot Checkpoint where it enters Jerusalem ‘s jurisdictional area.
    https://www.btselem.org/freedom_of_movement/road_443

    The numbers are staggering; one in five Palestinian dead is a child. The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) says at least 408 Palestinian children have been killed since the beginning of the intifada in September 2000. Nearly half were killed in the Gaza strip, and most of those died in two refugee camps in the south, Khan Yunis and Rafah. The PCHR says they were victims of “indiscriminate shooting, excessive force, a shoot-to-kill policy and the deliberate targeting of children”.

    And children continue to die, even after the ceasefire declared by Hamas and other groups at the end of June. On Friday, a soldier at a West Bank checkpoint shot dead a four-year-old boy, Ghassan Kabaha, and wounded his two young sisters after “accidentally” letting loose at a car with a burst of machinegun fire from his armoured vehicle. The rate of killing since the beginning of the ceasefire has dropped sharply, but almost every day the army has continued to fire heavy machineguns into Khan Yunis or Rafah. Among the latest victims of apparently indiscriminate shooting were three teenagers and an eight-year-old, Yousef Abu Jaza, hit in the knee when soldiers shot at a group of children playing football in Khan Yunis.
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2003/jul/28/israel

    You suggest I visit “israel” Fran. I suggest YOU visit Gaza.

    In the meantime, @everyone, I read yesterday that “israel” is suspending its anexation of the Jordan Vally as a result of the ICC’s decision to investigate “israeli” war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    This highlights the power of public opinion and “israels” fears of exposure.

    Most anti Zionist would not stand for this horseshit. Oh dear, you think you are so moral, to hate so much.

    Richard Thurlow noted that Reed was one of the first antisemitic writers to deny Hitler’s extermination of the Jews.[6] In a review of Reed’s Lest We Regret written in 1943, George Orwell compared Reed, with his unheeded early warnings about the Nazis, to the Greek mythological figure Cassandra. Orwell noted Reed dismissed the Nazis’ persecution of German Jews, and even the pogroms, as just “propaganda.” Reed cited a story in the Daily Herald about Germans in football clothes playing football with 500 Jewish babies in a football stadium near Kiev “bouncing and kicking them around the arena.” This story had also been dismissed in the New Statesman as “complete fabrication” and “nonsense.”[7] Orwell summed-up Reed’s book as: “the dominant notes being back to the land, more emigration, down with the Reds and—above all—down with the Jews.” Orwell warned that Reed had an “easy journalistic style”, stating he was a “persuasive writer” through which he was “capable of doing a lot of harm among the large public for which he caters.” Orwell compared Reed’s outlook to that of the anti-Hitlerian Nazi dissident Otto Strasser and the British fascist leader Oswald Mosley.[8]

    I do not think we have anything to discuss. End of the line from a proud Jew to a sick POS.

    Here is another beauty from your hero Douglas Reed. He was against the decolonization of Africa by the third world Afrikaners in favor the the white. Imagine that!! What a guy.

    In the 1960s Reed was outspoken in his opposition to the decolonization of Africa. In his The Battle for Rhodesia (1966) he explicitly compared decolonization to the above-mentioned appeasement of Hitler; he strongly supported Ian Smith’s unilateral declaration of independence from the United Kingdom, arguing that Smith’s Rhodesia had to be defended as “the last bulwark against the Third World War”, just as Czechoslovakia should have been defended against Hitler in 1938.

    Nazis are no different than Jews: both are driven by a love of their people.

    Nazis thought it fit to drive the Jews from Germany upon the correct conclusion that communism and its facilitating forces were created and led by Jews.

    Jews were privileged that this demand was not a mere result of racial recognition and prior enforced, and the Germans waited until there was an actual problem. Jews would not return their territory to them.

    Which is no different than the situation that the Jews found themselves in with the Palestinians that they now keep in open detention and continue to take land from. But who they sought to do this purely on the basis of ethnic difference, and as an invading force, rather than as a result of a problem such as communism.

    Applying the principles of Judaism for use by the Germans: it is impossible for Jews to be the victims within the national boundaries of Germany. Especially after being given plenty of notice to leave and after international Jewry declared War on the Germans.

    Why wouldn’t White people pine for the Reich and the Fuhrer?

    First, his promises were freeing but less psychopathic than those of the Jewish Messiah and Messianic Age for which the Jews pine.

    Second, living without Jews isn’t as painful as you lead yourself to believe. To think otherwise indicates your problems.

    Or is it merely that Jewish nationalism is the only nationalism that does not indicate problems?

    Your peculiar anti-Jew bent fascinates me.

    I ought render a couple biographic tidbits before I explain.

    Fate burdened me with the curse of being a law professor (and some would say eminent) — since 1972. Also, a mathematician/statistician, and writer of published works of philosophy and a couple major articles treating the social harm neoliberal economics wrought by influencing legal policy and judicial decisions.

    I do not love or hate Jewry, or a supposed generality of Jews — partly (just partly) because the world’s Jewish population is markedly mongrel (genetically unrelated to Hebrews), much non-Semitic, and rather religiously, economically, politically, and professionally diverse.

    I do wish that the current non-state of Israel and Zionists would perish and Palestinians would be able to reclaim their territory no occupied by Zionist Jewish“Israel.” (We meet a false issue in the occasional debate whether Israel has a right of existence. Israel never became a state — never obtained U.N. Security Council ratification of the General Assembly’s attempt of declaring “Israel” a state. Israel bears no international law right of existence.

    Your Jews-started-the-war” argument is false-premised and sophistic trash — would be laughed out of any rational law-court, even one of any pure heaven an honest, highly intelligent critical mind might imagine.

    You observe: “Feb. 14, 1933 (after Hitler was appointed Chancellor) Louis Brandeis, world leader of Zionists, states directive to Rabbi Stephen Wise: ‘All Jews must leave Germany…. All 587,000 German Jews must leave, none should remain’.”

    Brandeis was a notable Zionist (much became of his judicial stature), but hardly Zionism’s world leader. In 1933 and within a decade before, the Zionist big boys, were these:

    * Meir Bar-Ilan (1880-1949), born in Volozhin (Russian Empire), rabbi and leader of Religious *Zionists (National Religious Party)
    * Menachem Begin (1913-1992), leader of the militant Irgun group, later prime minister of Israel
    * David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973), founder and first prime minister of Israel
    * Max Bodenheimer (1865-1940), German-born lawyer and associate of Theodor Herzl
    * Israel Eldad (1910-1996), Galician-born Revisionist Zionist, follower of Ze’ev Jabotinsky
    * Romana Goodman
    * Nahum Goldmann Nahum Goldmann (1895–1982) founder and president of the World Zionist Congress
    * Chaim Arlosoroff (1899-1933) leader of the Yishuv during the British Mandate for Palestine

    Many were rather stupid or thugs. None had a fine legal/juridical mind like Brandeis’s.

    More important: You have no evidence that could suggest that Louis Brandeis intended more or other than that Jews ought to leave Germany because signs indicated the Hitler and other high-level Nazis designed to cast German Jews into some style of horrendous hell, as, actually, Hitler and his cohorts did — though not quite the “holocaust” the gullible public has been duped to believe occurred, see, e.g.,
    * https://paulcraigroberts.org/2019/12/02/hitlers-war-crimes-vs-those-of-churchill-the-americans
    * https://paulcraigroberts.org/2019/12/08/the-holocaust-2
    * https://paulcraigroberts.org/2019/11/19/the-truth-about-world-war-ii-is-beginning-to-emerge-74-years-later

    You observed: “by or on Mar. 24, 1933, leaders of ‘International Jewry’ cause to be published in the Jewish-owned British newspapers Daily Express the banner headline: ‘Judea Declares War on Germany’.”

    Alas: (a) that “declaration” occurred after Hitler was appointed Chancellor; (b) Germany’s Jews, even the total world Jewry, lacked means of declaring war against any nation or population, so that surely the declaration connoted intention of working to inspire international sentiment against the anti-Jewry policies and acts that astute Jews, like Louis Brandeis, anticipated. What evidence shows that the declaration did not parallel a pseudo-poetic declaration of “war on poverty,” “war on hate,” “war on sex-discrimination,” or “war on crime”?

    Perhaps you will assert this: a “Jewish-run Hollywood movie studio set designers as instrumental in planning, designing, rehearsing and executing the firebombing of the cities and homes of working-class German civilians, including ‘infants in cribs’” [and] then actual fire-bombings did kill thousands of German civilians. But a movie set design is no more than a movie set design. And the fire-bombings were ordered by non-Jewish high generals — even the very German-descent, non-JMew, non-Zionist, non-Jew-lover Dwight D. Eisenhower — and executed exclusively or near-exclusively by non-Jews.

    Or you may assert: “Theodore Kaufmann, Germany Must Perish” or “Henry Morgenthau, Jr., The Morgenthau Plan.”

    But Kaufmann’s “Germany must Perish” may have been only a wish that the Nazi threats and manifest violent evils cease and that nothing like effective Nazism ever recur. Or it may be like my wish that Zionist Israel be delegitimized and all Zionist land returned the Palestinian populace from whom Zionists stole it with terrorism and illegal wars and has held it, and increased its hold of it, by the same cruel, violent means, contrary to international law. You present zero evidence of the contrary.

    And, The Morgenthau Plan was not a plan of or involving war. It proposed that after WWII, Germany be deprived of its heavy industry, and the Ruhr “be stripped of all presently existing industries” and “so weakened and controlled that it can not in the foreseeable future become an industrial area.” A cruel plan. But not a plan of prosecuting war. And Morganthau proposed the plan in 1944. (A stupid plan, too; for, it threatened what the WWI armistice threatened, another angry militarist Germany.)

    In a later comment, I shall question your apparent notion that Jews threaten and very often have wrought — that Jewry threatens and very often has wrought— dire evils against vast populations of non-Jews. Be assured that my question will not deny, avoid, or downplay the realty that many Jews have cause many non-Jews serious harms — most directly economic, thence political, and ultimately physical, though, except in the ambit of Israel (ancient or current), not actually harms of war or other mass violence.

    Which of the zionist “big boy” – thugs had the ear of the president of the USA and leader of Britain?

    Brandeis’s “fine legal mind” impresses me not at all: he abused his position on the Supreme Court of the UNITED STATES to gain advantage for a specific group whose agenda was not for the benefit of the United States.
    That one ” ??? Marcus,” a Jewish person directing efforts to severely limit the rights of free speech and assembly of all American people in order to privilege rights of Jews in the United States, does so under the umbrella of an organization named for Brandeis, only constitutes further evidence of the perfidy of that “fine legal mind:” Brandeis was a traitor to- and usurper of- his status as an American.

    I have no idea what you are going on about in your attempts to exculpate Kaufmann and the Jews who –declared and executed an economic war against Germany; –voluntarily participated in planning and implementing a firebombing campaign specifically targeting German civilians, even specifying infants, and –advocated and implemented the economic and cultural dismemberment of Germany.. The documentary evidence of Jewish participation is clear, and the facts on the ground are manifest and, so to say “set in stone-dust.” But then I’m neither a lawyer nor “eminent legal scholar since 1972.”

    Reading “about” Douglas Reed is not the same as actually reading Douglas Reed.

    Having your mind made up for you, being told what to think by others rather than actually thinking for yourself doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in your (borrowed) protestations, Fran.

    Read the histories for yoursekf and make up your own mind. Failing that, you have nothing of value to contribute to any discussion.

    You reflexive defence of “israel” coupled with your vitriolic finger-pointing at the innequities or even criminality of others is a sheild behind which you hide. Refusing to even entertain the fact that you may be wrong. – If you don’t question your recieved wisdom how can you know if it is wisdom?

    I’m not a “jew hater” Fran. In fact I don’t even recognise that there is such a thing as “a jew” outside of a chosen, ego identity.

    Judaism, as an ideology, is supremacist, hate-filled arogance of “biblical proportions”. Zionism, the political bedfellow of Jedaism, is a grand criminal conspircy for global domination.

    Together these ideologies pose a very real and substancial threat to the welbeing of people all over the planet.

    I look to Palestine to see what results from these abhorant idiologies, as practiced by those who identify as “jews” and I am horrified! – As you would be IF YOU BOTHERED TO CARE!;Instead you continue to defend the indefensable whilst attempting to deflect attention away from the crimes of “your people” (i.e. self-identified “jews”).

    You claim not to be racist. I beg to differ. Your desparate attempts to villify Arabs suggests you are, at least, a little racist.

    Stop trying to defend that racist endeavour which is “israel” and unstead turn your energies to making it less racist and less criminal!

    Oh so I have to read Reed to understand him? Really?
    Was he against African independence or not? Did he make racist comments or not?
    It is a binary answer yes or no. You do not have to read a novel to know the answer. The answer is yes. That is what he wrote.

    Judaism is not an ideology it is a religion and the first people to believe in a singular divine being that can not be defined by time or space. It was a revolutionary idea profound really. Liberating humans from dogma like child sacrifice, and incest. It promoted individual libertyand judicial laws for protection.

    Judaism was a breakthrough for the advancement of the human race and the foundation of western civilization. The one divine being (god) is the foundation for Christianity and Islam. All derivative of the revolutionary concept of a divine being ( not bound by space or time and not humanly knowable or human) discovered in Judaism as revealed to Moses.
    Judaism provided the Ten Commandments the beginning of a moral compass and laws for living. It was a good thing in the early Bronze Age.

    No Kali you are not a Jew Hater you are just profoundly ignorant. Why don’t you pick up a book not Douglas Reed no something more basic like the origins of Western Civilization you know like where it all started.

    Oh Fran, you poor deluded fool!

    A religion IS an ideology (an idea). In this case (Judaism) it is an idea of a universal “god” jelous and vengeful toward other “gods” who comanded his [favorite in all his, apparently, imperfect creation] people” not to worship.

    According to Reed, whom you feel ought to be rejected out of hand because some people (wiki?) told you he was “racist” and ergo can have nothing of value to say about anything ever (oh tbe idiocy of the politically “correct”!) the advent of Judaism along with its confused and confusing notions about its tribalistic yet somehow universal “god”, coincided with a rising awareness/concept, particularly in Egypt, of a universal God of all creation. You see, despite what you have been told to think, “the jrws” are far from exeptional in this or (almost*) any other regard.

    [* they may be exeptional cheats and scheemers 😉 ]

    The Levites simply rode that particular phylosophical wave whilst creating for themselves and for the befooled people of Judea, a peculiar, and deeply unpleasant, vengeful “universal” god of the jews.

    Sure enough, that particular “religious idea” (does that help?) did become the foundation of two subsequent religions.
    I know remakably little about Islam, but in the case of “christianity” that is, the organised religion, which seems to barely recognise Christs’ central message.- i.e. “don’t be a jew” – it’s astonishing that the Old Testaments was accepted by the founders of that religion as the “received word of god”!

    Now, I could go on, describing and explaining the bullshit which underlies organised religion, which underlies rule if law and western “civilisation” but I wouldn’t be referencing any standard text, and I fear you would only become even more confused than you are now. Your obvious comfort in, and acceptance of, standard narratives would be streached way too far and would only lead to further cognative dissonance for you. Maybe one day you will be ready to break free of your comfortable conventions and acceptance of others ideas as your own. But not today.

    Insidentally, did you know that the word religion comes from the Latin “ligare” (not 100% on the spelling of that) meaning “to bind”. In this case, to bind one to an ideology/religion/belief (I believe, itself, litterally means “I don’t know”). Interestinglt the word “herratic” comes from the Greek, herrisis, meaning “freedom”. Go figure!

    So, you see Fran, I’m not at all ignorant on these subjects. I recognise the origins of the “rule of law” and of western “civilisation”, but rather than beginning and ending my explorations of these topics with conventional texts and received wisdom, I went beyond, further, deeper.

    The journey continues.

    First a reply responding to your reply-post of 27 December 2019 at 10:56 am GMT

    You wrote: “Brandeis’s “fine legal mind” impresses me not at all: he abused his position on the Supreme Court of the UNITED STATES to gain advantage for a specific group whose agenda was not for the benefit of the United States.”

    Your opinion clashes with the opinions of near every law professor, other legal scholar, and U.S. jmurist (and even many British lawyers/scholars/jurists) — of every political inclination (liberal, conservative, socialist, communist, libertarian…….) even though they may, sometimes, disagree with particular opinions Brandeis wrote.

    Your wrote: “I have no idea what you are going on about in your attempts to exculpate Kaufmann and the Jews who –declared and executed an economic war against Germany; –voluntarily participated in planning and implementing a firebombing campaign specifically targeting German civilians, even specifying infants, and –advocated and implemented the economic and cultural dismemberment of Germany.. The documentary evidence of Jewish participation is clear, and the facts on the ground are manifest and, so to say ‘set in stone-dust’.”

    My earlier comment did not include “attempts to exculpate Kaufmann and the Jews who –declared and executed an economic war against Germany.” Rather, it stated that Morgenthau proposed a “cruel plan” that was “stupid” because it would have “threatened what the WWI armistice threatened, another angry militarist Germany.” Rarely are economic sanctions wise or just, rather than hurtfully cruel and greedy or unempathically/stupidly retributive or just hateful and brutal to essentially innocent “civilians.”

    My Kaufmann observations were unrelated to economic policy, whether cruel, just, or kindly empathic. I wrote: “But Kaufmann’s “Germany must Perish” may have been only a wish that the Nazi threats and manifest violent evils cease and that nothing like effective Nazism ever recur. Or it may be like my wish that Zionist Israel be delegitimized and all Zionist land returned the Palestinian populace from whom Zionists stole it with terrorism and illegal wars and have held it, and increased their hold of it, by the same cruel, violent means, contrary to international law. You present zero evidence of the contrary.” [I corrected a couple number-disagreements caused by an editing error.]

    Your final paragraph is puerile. Grow up.

    Now my promised comment questioning your apparent notion that Jews threaten and very often have wrought — that Jewry threatens and very often has wrought— dire evils against vast populations of non-Jews.

    Your anti-Jewry bias lacks empirical basis and logical sense.

    Beyond doubt or rational debate, even outside the context of the behavior of 1946-2019 Sionist Israelis, many highly positioned Jews are monsters, at least in their economic/business/financial-“industry” behaviors. Goldman Sachs epitomizes horrendously harmful manifest psychopathic greed and evil Jewish political/economic/financial influence. One can reference quite enough other examples within and outside the U.S., e.g., the Rothchilds.

    Then one must decry the at-least inhumane/at worst psychopathic behaviors of Zionists, Zionism supporters, and supporters of Zionist Israel, the world’s second worst terrorist state (the U.S. being the worst).

    That behavior harkens back the ancient Jews’ invention of Jahweh [an astonishingly cruel God] whom those Jews caused to name Jews “The Chosen People” and issue laws like the rule that the ancient Jews MUST invade and conquer surrounding non-Jewish communities and kill every man, woman, child, and animal of the conquered people and take their land. See the Book of Joshua, which describes a horrendous manifestation of that command and also a more astonding account of Joshua’s treatment of a very peaceful, kind, and just gentile, the King of Ai.

    Relatedly, The supposed “Ten Commandments” do NOT say “Thou shalt not kill.” They say “Thou shalt not kill thy tribesman.”

    But, as my earlier comment noted, most Jews are genetically unrelated to Hebrews, much non-Semitic, and rather religiously, economically, politically, and professionally diverse. Consider the great Khazar empire [7th through 9th centuries C.E.] after its emperor converted to Judaism and mostly the empire’s population converted to Judaism, too.

    Those Khazar Jews were Turkic or Mongol or of other non-Hebrew, even non-“Caucasian” stock. Their sociopolitical attitudes and behavior were not akin to those of either Hebrew Jews of ancient Israel(or Judah). They migrated widely, including into Europe, especially eastern Europe. They did not absorb the perceptions and inclinations that explain Joshua’s extermination of the human and non-human animal population of Jericho and Ai. They did not imagine themselves “Chosen People.”

    While, for a century until today, too many selfish Jews acted unscrupulously for greed, in the same period, Jews have constituted perhaps the dominant force of good — and in the Civil Rights movement of the mid-20th century U.S. South and elsewhere in the U.S. and in pursuing EVERYONE’s civil rights and civil liberties in the courts and in legislatures.

    No one can suggest, honorably, what Jewry percentage mimics the worst Jewish bankers and businessmen or the Jewish psychopaths who supply much (but far from all) of the driving force of neoliberal economics and neocon foreign policy. Recall that Nixon, the two Bush Presidents, Dick Cheny, John Bolton, and Tump are NOT Jews. No one can suggest, honorably, what Jewry percentage includes psychologically/morally “normal” people who harm others no more or less than non-Jews do. The uncertainty is immaterial.

    All ethnicities and religious groups include people of all kinds of psychologies and moralities. History shows that a Jewish financial-occupation tendency owes its existence much to Western European & Central European societies’ tending to deny Jews access to “proper” trades, like farming, or “noble” trades, like feudal war.

    Contemn those — Jews AND OTHERS — who do unjustifiable or empathically incomprehensible harm. Let live freely and peacefully all the rest. Treat people according to their actual individual behaviors, not their religions or enthnicities.

You see, despite what you have been told to think, “the jrws” are far from exeptional in this or (almost*) any other regard.

    So the Egyptians were in on the one god idea? Was is there idea first and we copied? Did they write a book about it? I guess I missed it. We Jews wrote one and it was and is a best seller. The bible
    Someone asked Jesus’s about his favorite prayer, he said it was the Shema. Look it up. It is the declaration of the “oneness” of god.
    Jesus was born a Jew, practiced Judaism, kept kosher, and died a Jew. What happened after his death was out of his control.

    That Reed guy sure sounds like a genius.

  72. @Loup-Bouc

    Your final paragraph is puerile. Grow up.

    Your opening paragraph, on the other hand, is filled with more hot air than the stock market bubble —

    I ought render a couple biographic tidbits before I explain.

    Fate burdened me with the curse of being a law professor (and some would say eminent) — since 1972. Also, a mathematician/statistician, and writer of published works of philosophy and a couple major articles treating the social harm neoliberal economics wrought by influencing legal policy and judicial decisions.

    In what way are these “tidbits” supposed to impress a reader?

    Two points from your commentary:

    “But Kaufmann’s “Germany must Perish” may have been only a wish that the Nazi threats and manifest violent evils cease and that nothing like effective Nazism ever recur.”

    Exactly what was Germany doing to Jews in 1940? Be specific. Your statement is laden with adjectives and abstractions but light on particulars and evidence.

    If I’m not mistaken, “Germany must Perish” was written in 1940.
    Peter Moreira made extensive use of Henry Morgenthau’s diaries in the writing of “The Jew Who Defeated Hitler: Henry Morgenthau, Jr. . . .”
    Morgenthau recorded in his diary that in 1942 he “knew of the millions of deaths and the lampshades made from victims’ skin,” when Rabbi Stephen Wise visited him and persisted in telling him of ” . . . the barbarity of the Nazis, how they were making soap out of Jewish flesh.”
    Morgenthau “later said the meeting [in 1942] changed his life.”

    If Morgenthau’s “life was changed” by Rabbi Wise’s stories of Germans “making lampshades and soap of Jewish flesh” only in 1942, what information did Kaufmann have about Germans in 1940 that induced him to publish a 107 page scheme to castrate German males and sterilize German females and thereby wipe out the entire German populace?

    Were Germans decapitating Jews and shooting their heads from cannons? Elie Wiesel was not in German camps until May, 1944, when a friend told him that he saw “Infants . . . tossed into the air and used as targets for the machine guns.” .
    Did Kaufmann have a dream in 1940 that foretold what Wiesel was told in 1944?

    ——
    Regarding Brandeis: he used his office as an employee and servant of the United States to work for the benefit of another state-to-be, the Jewish homeland in Palestine.
    On the strength of relationships formed through his position in US government, he drew other, fellow zionists– Felix Frankfurter– into US Supreme Court, while working with Frankfurter to draw USA step by step into a war that the great majority of the American people opposed.

    Brandeis and Frankfurter carried out their zionist activities in secret, using their offices in US Supreme Court to conceal their zionist activities.

    The character of US Supreme Court Justice James Clark McReynolds has been blackened and his reputation destroyed because he openly opposed the zionist activities of Brandeis and Frankfurter, in addition to resisting many of the New Deal policies and novel interpretations of the Constitution that Brandeis and Frankfurter advanced.

    McReynolds might well be numbered among those U S military leaders that Joseph Bendersky pillories for their “anti-semitism” in “The Jewish Threat: Antisemitic Politics of the U. S. Army”
    “The Jewish Threat” reveals that:

    U.S. military leaders in those decades widely believed that the world faced a direct threat from organized Jewry, which had seized control of Russia and similarly sought to subvert and gain mastery over America and the rest of Western civilization.

    In these military circles, there was an overwhelming belief that powerful Jewish elements had financed and led Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution, and were organizing similar Communist movements elsewhere aimed at destroying all existing Gentile elites and imposing Jewish supremacy throughout America and the rest of the Western world.

    It is disturbing that persons whose pledged task it was to protect and defend the American people should have been vilified by men — such as Brandeis and Frankfurter — who were actually traitors to the USA.
    The traitors prevailed and are honored for working on behalf of a foreign entity, while the patriots — McReynolds and the US military leaders — were vilified and died unheeded and in ignominy!

    Because I must complete a complex litigation pleading by 30 December (2019), I have not enough time now to reply to your reply of 28 December 2019, 4:37 am GMT.

    I must note now, however, that mostly your reply is irrelevant to my comment to which it attempts to reply.

    Also, you put a specious and irrelevant implied criticism where you state: “Exactly what was Germany doing to Jews in 1940? Be specific. Your statement is laden with adjectives and abstractions but light on particulars and evidence.”

    Your criticism purports to respond to my statement ““But Kaufmann’s ‘Germany must Perish’ may have been only a wish that the Nazi threats and manifest violent evils cease and that nothing like effective Nazism ever recur” — which you deprive of its context.

    My whole statement was: “But Kaufmann’s ‘Germany must Perish’ may have been only a wish that the Nazi threats and manifest violent evils cease and that nothing like effective Nazism ever recur. Or it may be like my wish that Zionist Israel be delegitimized and all Zionist land returned the Palestinian populace from whom Zionists stole it with terrorism and illegal wars and [have] held it, and increased [their] hold of it, by the same cruel, violent means, contrary to international law. You present zero evidence of the contrary.”

    How many adjectives does that statement bear? Seven, of a total of 608 words (1%).

    You question “Exactly what was Germany doing to Jews in 1940?” Even holocaust-deniers (and I am partially one) admit that (a) in 1940, Germany was removing Jews to “transit” camps, work-camps, and “concentration” camps where many thousands (eventually, by 1945, millions) died because of living and working conditions, (b) often some SS officers or other German military ordered mass shootings of Jews (more in 1938-1942 than later), and (c) many Jews died during transport, because of the transport-means and methods.

    The evidence is (a) beyond abundant (and acknowledged even my most holocaust-deniers), and (b) now is too late to try to debate it or require restatement of all the abundant proof.

    My statement [“But Kaufmann’s ‘Germany must Perish may have been only a wish that the Nazi threats and manifest violent evils cease….”(etc.)] is not one that requires evidence-support. It consists of two hypotheses concerning the true intent of Kaufmann’s “Germany must perish,” which, in the temporal and sociopolitical context of its utterance, rather parallels something like a combination of the situation in apartheid South Afrika, a pogrom, and the onslaught of a Visigoth or Roman invasion. Jews were damned scared, with good cause; and that fact does not submit to retort premised on a view that the Jewish “race” is evil and ought to be exterminated (the Jewish “race,” which did not exist in 1940).

    I shall reply fully when I have time (likely, 31 December).
