Being Jewish is Separatist and Discriminatory…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on September 11, 2007


“By calling it a Jewish State, whatever that is meant to mean, it appears to be separatist, to be discriminatory.”

All Nations are Ethno-centrists in terms of being focused on a common identity. Sweden is a Swedish nation, Denmark is a Danish nation, the US is an American nation, why should Israel, which was created to be a Jewish Homeland, be any different? It’s not like people of other identities are not welcome or do not have any legal rights. All nations have problems with attitudes towards foreigners and immigrants – it’s called racism – and Israel, as a Jewish nation has that problem just as every other nation. Every other nation in the world, at least if it’s somewhat democratic has difficulties with supremacist groups, why should Israel, as a Jewish State be any different.

Finland have Swedish Finns and Finnish Finns, it also have two very different languages – just like Israel has Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis and two different languages – it really is that simple. Yes, Israel wants to remain Jewish, because that is majority identity in Israel – Sweden wants to remain Swedish – if the Poles or Assyrians, or for that matter the Finns (which are the largest immigrant group in Sweden) came and demanded that Sweden stop being distinctly Swedish, that in fact Sweden should cease to exist – because it’s Swedish – and 8 million Swedes should suddenly over night become Finns, because the two groups share a common land mass, and once upon a time Sweden occupied Finland, then you’d have Sweden and the Swedes up in arms about it, demanding that Sweden remain Swedish, and most likely the Finns living in Sweden would be deported to Finland.

Now, by claiming that the problem with Israel is that its majority identity is Jewish and that it wants to remain Jewish, you are actually making being Jewish something BAD, which, like it or not, smacks of antisemitism.

Instead of attacking Israel for being Jewish, it would be more fruitful to attack those policies within Israel that makes being something other than Jewish less than being Jewish.

Also, funny isn’t it – my Blog wasn’t about Israel being Jewish or about the relations to the Palestinians, but about Neonazi/White supremacist Groups within Israel, and the rather complacent attitude taken by the Israeli Government on the matter. My Blog is about the fact that Jews are being attacked for being Jews inside Israel.

Fat and Ugly if you dislike Beauty Pageants…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on September 11, 2007


Full Bodied Woman 1

A friend of mine got into a scrap when he defended a friend who dislikes Beauty Pageants for children and teens. His friend was called “Fat and Ugly” when she expressed her dislike of beauty pageants for children and teens, calling for some sense and sensibility in regards to what is expected of those kids.

Had I been there I would have been in a scrap too.

Claiming that someone, who actually sees beauty pageants for what they are – extremely superficial, degrading to women and generally very influential in how we raise our girls and young women to view themselves, is fat and ugly, is not only abusive and unfair, it is an attitude that serves only one purpose: Cementing the current gender roles in which women are held in mental and physical servitude not so much to men as to a social and political system that thrives on superficiality and inauthenticity.

My wife wrote an excellent blog on this matter in which she declares that she wont shave her body hair, because it only caters to a pedophiliac attitude in society towards women. I wrote a Blog entry about a judge who claimed that a 10 year-old victim of rape was “dressed provocatively” that has some very revealing pictures.

Trashing a woman for attempting to step out of the mold, fight the mold and actively contribute to a change in how people and society view women is misogynist to say the least, and is very telling in terms of revealing the priorities of the trashers.

Beauty is a whole of things, not just a beautiful face or a beautiful body. It also needs to have a beautiful soul and mind.”

Well said, Kelly! And thank you D for stepping up and defending her!
