Jude, Kike…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 14, 2007


Jude

The words don’t bother me – the association does – the past experiences of violence – the times I’ve had to flee from gangs of young men screaming, yelling that word, threatening to beat me, rape my wife and kill my dog…that’s what ran through my mind today as I heard yet another throng of young adults yell that word “Jude” as I went to the yard with my dog and wife.

And I know that they are taught this at home, in the church, in the youth club…just a few weeks ago a middle aged man yelled that after me when I tried to cross the street out-side my house and happened to get in the way of his car (in a place where cars HAVE to give way to pedestrians) and threatened to kill me next time he sees me.

No, the words don’t bother me – but the threats inherent behind them do.

What else could it be?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 26, 2007


“The Jews control the Media…”
“The Jews control the Diamond Trade…”
“The Jews created those Muhammad cartoons…”
“The Jews control the World’s Banks…”
“The Jews controlled the Slave trade…”
“The Jews cause the Black Plague…”
“The Jews control the UN…”
“The Jews control the Movie Industry…”
“The Jews…”Why is defining someone as “Jewish” important?What does someone being Jewish have to do with the media, the diamond trade, the Muhammad Cartoons, the slave trade, the black plague, the UN, the movie industry?

Why is that all other people in the world are defined as the country they live in, but a resident of Sweden or America or any other country, who also happens to be Jewish, is defined as “Jewish”?

Some have attempted to answer the question by claiming that people Jewish make a big thing out of being Jewish – or at least that is what they say they hear all the time – Jewish people talking about being Jewish. Some hide their slanted query in a little game called “blame the victim”: “that because Jews define themselves this way, which is magnified a zillion times by the actions of the Israeli government (which are propped up by Israeli voters), might have something to do with why others define Jews as Jews.”

A variation on this theme:”non-Jews feel like they are always having the holocaust and anti-semitism thrown in their faces all the time, and I think it makes them feel like Jews blame people who were not even alive at the time for what happened in the past, or that non-Jews don’t feel sorry enough for them.”

Ah, yes, of course – Israel must be the cause, why else would the Russians, the Polish, the Germans have tried to annihilate us? And of course it is all about the fact that we exist and the Holocaust happened – What else could it be?

The little old lady who is fearfully seeking out the Jewish Community, she has not dared seek out since she was released from Bergen-Belsen in 1945 because she has lived her entire life in fear that someone would find out that she is Jewish – so she can be sure to have a decent Jewish Funeral, she has of course made all sorts of advertizing about being Jewish, and that is the reason she will be labeled as Jewish, should she be seen entering the Synagogue. Naturally. What else could it be?

Or the preteen who walks five blocks more than he has to every Thursday afternoon after school, careful to make sure no-one follows him and sees him enter the Synagogue back-door for his weekly Bar Mitzvah Studies, because if his schoolmates saw him, he would be labeled Jewish and most likely be harassed in school the next day – he really must have boasted about being Jewish – Oh yes, what else could it be?

The middle-aged man, who in keeping with his faith wears a scull cap and fringes where-ever he goes, who is being waylaid on the way to the store, yelled at and threatened by mobs of youngsters. Whose dog is being kicked and stoned when it is left out-side that store – he must really have told it from the roof-tops that he is Jewish, after all he is wearing out-side signs of being Jewish, so what else could it be?

G-d forbid that it should be something within the non-Jews! G-d forbid that ordinary, decent, church-going people be asked to accept that they have anti-semitic tendencies hopping round in their minds, that have them note and magnify this rather irrelevant fact about their fellow human beings to a point where everything else becomes insignificant – so all they see is “Jewish”. G-d forbid.

Shalom!

The Difference of Words…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 23, 2007


There’s a clear difference between legitimate criticism of Israel and Anti-Semitism:

Clear criticisms of Israeli policy & its backers Antisemitic ideas often repeated by activists with no anti-Jewish intentions Lines emerging directly from neonazi & antisemitic organizations
Israel has a repeated & ongoing record of human rights offenses. “Israel is a worse humans rights violator than most or all other countries.” “Israel is the root of the world’s problems.”
Many Israeli soldiers justify their actions toward Palestinians by saying they’re ‘just following orders.’ “Israelis are just like Nazis.” “Israel is worse than the Nazis,” “This wouldn’t have happened if the Nazis were successful,” etc.
The Zionist movement has included elements of racism from its early days, such as the claim that Palestine was “a land without a people for a people without aland.” Major Zionist factions have implemented conscious, intentional racist policy. Regardless of individual Zionists’ intentions, Zionism as a whole has had racist & oppressive results for the Palestinian people. “Zionism is racism.” “The Zionist conspiracy is behind this,” “Zionism is the root of the world’s problems today,” etc.
AIPAC,* weapons lobbies & others give U.S. politicians incentives to push anti-Palestinian policies, & attempt to silence &intimidate both Jews & non-Jews who raise alternatives. “The ‘Israel Lobby’ is what is pushing America off track &away from its true interests,or caused us to go to war.” “Israel /The Zionists /The Jews /The Jewish Lobby…is controlling the U.S./ the world.”
In this issue, as in so many, the corporate media provide one-dimensional, sensationalized coverage, usually biased toward whatever side the U.S. government is backing – when they cover it at all. “The media, controlled by Zionists, never talks about the plight of the Palestinians.” “Zionist control of the media is part of a vast web of Zionist power over banks & world governments, in their conspiracy to rule over humanity.”
Lack of a resolution between Israel & Palestine is one of several major regional conflicts preventing justice & stability in the Middle East. Outside powers such as the U.S. & Europe have played & play a role in sparking & perpetuating these conflicts. “The Israel-Palestine conflict is the root of violence & instability in the Middle East / of America’s bad relationship with Arab countries.” “Everything would be better if Israel was destroyed,” etc.

I agree with most of the statements in the LEFT column – I am not sure about the role of the US in the media coverage in Europe – nor am I sure that the US and/or Europe as such have directly fuelled the conflict – to me it seems more like they have been opportunists and used the situation to their advantage after the fact. Any way – the above table is exactly what I have tried to convey in discussions with violent Anti-Semites and Anti-Semitic statements – criticism of Israel is ok – when it is warranted – but don’t cross the line into Anti-Semitism, knowingly or unknowingly.The above Table is from “The Past Didn’t Go Anywhere,”

“Bear, this thread is about stereotypes I do not like 12:42 PMI never said it was you…you did that…and I never mentioned where the video was…you did that.

I do not like the stereotypes on the video, and I find them offensive.

I said “proposedly Jewish friend”…which means to me that the person posting the video claims to be Jewish, which is true.

This group is also about dispelling false stereotypes. To me, that video is full of false stereotypes.”

“[…], 12:55 PM

you said “proclaimed Jewish Friend” – regardless of who this person is – why is it important to bring the alleged Jewishness into this? Also, considering our latest conversations in NM, me suspecting you of underhandedly bringing up my supposed Anti-Arabism (which is also), is not at all surprising.

Second – the video is a PEACE VIDEO – there are no Israelis there, no Jews, and the images could be from any Western Country, except the one of Bush and Cheney, and any Arab Country in the World – it’s Video about the unnecessary clash between our prejudices about each other – where ever we live.

To claim that the video is depicting Americans and Israelis against Muslims is utter horse manure, regardless of your own perceptions – it’s simply FALSE. You could easily have brought this stereotype here without distorting the intent and mission of the video.”

“Bear, this thread is about stereotypes of nationalities 1:19 PM

It is full of stereotypes. I take offense to the stereotypes, and want to clear it up.

Again, I never said which video it was, or whose video it was…I never even said which “proposedly Jewish friend”…I have hundreds of friends on care2, and many are “proposedly Jewish”. Again, you announced on this thread that it was your video.”

For crying out loud – of course the video is full of stereotypes, that is the purpose of the video – to visualize the prejudices we have and then ask us: IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME?

But there’s a far cry between saying that the video is full of stereotypes and claiming that it’s a video depicting the US and Israel together against Muslims…

Please, ignorant woman! GO BACK TO SCHOOL and don’t leave until you can pass without mistakes and fumbles.

Shalom

Reading things into things that doesn’t exist there…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 19, 2007


“I saw a video on a proclaimed Jewish friend’s blog that I found incredibly offensive…it showed U.S. citizens and Israelis as being one and the same against Muslims.”

This woman was referring to this video: only proving that she has understood nothing what the video is saying. And thus inferring that I am Anti-Arab. Which I am not, nor have ever been – I am Anti-War, Anti-Prejudice

She then – after I called her on it by saying this:

“[…]if you look at the video you will see that it doesn’t depict Israelis and Americans as being against Arabs – it shows how we are all the same. Same blood, same wishes, same needs…to make that Avaaz.org video into a racist, anti-Arab thing is simply wrong and means you have misunderstood the video entirely. I was pointed to it by a Pro-Palestinian.I would also like to know

why it is important to define “your friend” as Jewish? What does his Jewishness have to do with anything in this?

Are you profiling me? Trying to play into an anti-semitic/ anti-Jewish sentiment? Don’t you think that is counterproductive to the idea of this group? Even a bit bigoted? Racist perhaps?”

She replies:

“Bear, I was pointing that it is a stereotype I do not like and would like to dismiss The video, to me, showed Israelis and Americans as one on one side, and Muslims on the other side. I found it incredibly offensive, and want to clear up the stereotype.”

How can a video that is not depicting any Jewish People or Israelis even figure as a stereotype in this? Even in someone’s imagination. Unless there’s something very wrong in that person’s ideas about Jewish People.

Shalom!

Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the Third Reich

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 2, 2007


“. . . To what extent the whole existence of this people is based on a continuous lie is shown incomparably by the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion, so infinitely hated by the Jews. They are based on a forgery, the Frankfurter Zeitung moans and screams once every week: the best proof that they are authentic. What many Jews may do unconsciously is here consciously exposed. And that is what matters. It is completely indifferent from what Jewish brain these disclosures originate; the important thing is that with positively terrifying certainty they reveal the nature and activity of the Jewish people and expose their inner contexts as well as their ultimate final aims. The best criticism applied to them, however, is reality. Anyone who examines the historical development of the last hundred years from the standpoint of this book will at once understand the screaming of the Jewish press. For once this book has become the common property of a people, the Jewish menace may be considered as broken (Mein Kampf pp 307-308).”

I read this, and am astounded. I know a man who sounds like this every time he mentions the Jewish people, Israel or Zionism. Now, here in 2007. But that is not the issue – the issue is how was the PEZ used in the Third Reich? The idea that denying something is proof that what is denied is true was not a new idea – the Roman Catholic Church had used it during the Inquisition – the logic goes like this “if there is nothing to deny, then why do you bother to deny it?” Damned if you do and damned if you don’t…if you float you’re a witch and will be killed, if you don’t float, then you are dead anyway.This meant that nothing that was said either by the Jews or by their non-Jewish supporters could or would make any difference. Anything would be taken as evidence that the Protocols were indeed true, after all, hadn’t the Tsarists been ousted in Russia due to this devilish plan, didn’t history show that where ever there were strife and riots, there were Jews? So the Protocols were indeed planted in fertile soil:

Nora Levin states in her The Holocaust: The Destruction of European Jewry 1933-1945:

…”it was in Germany after World War I that they had their greatest success. There they were used to explain all of the disasters that had befallen the country: the defeat in the war, the hunger, the destructive inflation (19).”

Despite the fact that the Protocols had been exposed as a forgery as early as in 1921, it became the most popular book in Germany during the 20’s and 30’s – the Germans of that time ate it like candy. Why shouldn’t they have, after all it had all the trimmings of a good conspiracy theory – dark, clandestine meetings, money, a plan that threatens all of humanity and a clear perpetrator, that lived in the neighborhood? Hitler didn’t create Anti-Semitism, he merely played into Anti-Semitic sentiments that had been around since the times of the Romans. He refined it to a point where industrial extermination of the Jews not only became the order of the day, but a necessity. Something the German people had to do to survive as a national entity. In order to understand how an entire Nation can go psychotic, one has to understand that Anti-Semitism was not something unique to Germany – it was prevalent all over Europe and the US, and several countries did in fact have Anti-Jewish laws or restrictions and sentiments in place.

The US

“In 1939 a Roper poll found that only thirty-nine percent of Americans felt that Jews should be treated like other people. Fifty-three percent believed that “Jews are different and should be restricted” and ten percent believed that Jews should be deported. The United States’ tight immigration policies were not lifted during the Holocaust, news of which began to reach the United States in 1941 and 1942 and it has been estimated that 190 000 – 200 000 Jews could have been saved during the Second World War had it not been for bureaucratic obstacles to immigration deliberately created by Breckinridge Long and others.”

The UK

“Though there was some growing anti-semitism during the 1930s, this was counterbalanced by strong support for British Jews in their local communities leading to events such as the Battle of Cable Street where anti-semitism was strongly resisted. There was never wholesale persecution of the Jews before or during World War II in Britain. At the same time, however, Britain was not particularly receptive to Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi regime in Germany, and the other fascist states of Europe.”

Only in Germany was it ground into everyday thinking. It is human nature to grasp a straws, any straws when exposed to disaster, and that more than anything made it possible for Hitler to make the Protocols a document of truth. Also, let’s not forget that Hitler did bring Germany out of its depression, he built the industry and he did feed the hungry Germans. It’s very easy to then go along with whatever else such a leader might suggest.

By the time of the end of WWII, approximately 6 million Jews had been murdered because of a document that 44 years earlier had been determined to be a forgery – something at least one high-ranking Nazi officer, Erich von dem Bach-Zelewsky, acknowledged:

“I am the only living witness but I must say the truth. Contrary to the opinion of the National Socialists, that the Jews were a highly organized group, the appalling fact was that they had no organization whatsoever. The mass of the Jewish people were taken complete by surprise. They did not know at all what to do; they had no directives or slogans as to how they should act. This is the greatest lie of anti-Semitism because it gives the lie to that old slogan that the Jews are conspiring to dominate the world and that they are so highly organized. In reality, they had no organization of their own at all, not even an information service. If they had had some sort of organization, these people could have been saved by the millions, but instead, they were taken completely by surprise. Never before has a people gone as unsuspectingly to its disaster. Nothing was prepared. Absolutely nothing (20).”

Thank G-d for small blessings…

Make no excuses for them

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 24, 2006


A friend wrote this, in response to troubles that occured in several Groups in Care2:

 

“For people who haven’t experienced it and haven’t learned to recognise it, anti-Semitism can be a mystery to some. To many, it’s unconscious.Think of the 50s in the States, if you were here. Even the times just before Martin Luther King and that recent civil rights struggle. It was common for stereotypes of African-Americans to appear openly everywhere, in films, on TV, in books, in newspapers. African-Americans were always conscious of the discrimination they endured, the very open discrimination, but much of the rest of society needed to learn it was happening. Many unconsciously took part in it without knowing, by never questioning, by accepting the stereotypes and the racial epithets.

Most who used those racial epithets and laughed at or played along with the stereotypes of African-Americans would never have described themselves as racists. But they were; we all were. It came from ignorance, in most cases, but it was just as damaging, just as hurtful, just as horrid as the racism of the conscious racists.

And the conscious racists of those times? They didn’t hide their feelings but they, too, never described themselves as racists. They said they were realists. They claimed garbage like, the Bible supported separation of races and the Bible supported the “fact” that
African-Americans were inferior. They claimed blacks weren’t advanced enough or smart enough to be allowed the right to vote.

This was just a few years ago. And it was just a few years before that when Africans and other peoples of color were kept in this country as slaves. Slaves. Not just by the racists, but by the unquestioning majority, the ignorant majority. To many, if they were not black, the racism and discrimination was invisible. They didn’t see; they didn’t choose to see it.

Today, as a whole, we are not as ignorant. But that racism and the stereotypes created over centuries still poison relations between African-Americans and others in the States. We are only beginning to gain consciousness and work our ways out of this disaster of perception we have created. We are only beginning to free ourselves from this bile.

The racism we had and still have stayed with us because the majority didn’t question and a truly racist minority manipulated and hid their poison behind pseudo-science and pseudo-religion.

In many ways, anti-Semitism exists as does racism exist. From igonorance, from millenia of people creating Jewish stereotypes and Jewish scapegoats. Most people don’t know they may be taking part in it. How many have heard or used the term, “Jewing someone down,” and not thought a thing of it? How many have bought into the lie that “Jews killed Christ”? Or the stereotype of the “cheap Jew.” Most of you, if you do that, would never think of yourself as an anti-Semite. But everyone who is Jewish knows you are, even if you don’t realise it.

And then there are the true haters of Jews, who hide their hatred behind pseudo-religious pronouncements and other obfuscations. The ones who say they hate Israel – it’s easy to say that one – when they really hate Jews. And Jews are sensitive to anti-Semitism in the same way that American blacks are sensitive to racism. Jews recognise anti-Semitism in the same way that blacks recognise racism. It is ubiquitous in US society.

With racism, with anti-Semitism, with the bigotry against gays and lesbians, the bigotry against Muslims, the bigotry against Hispanics, even bigotry against “whites,” etc…..we are just beginning to look outside the darkness, just begining to learn. We have thousands of years of learning we must unlearn.

But like African-Americans know the true hater, the true and vile racist, so does one who is Jewish know and recognise the true hater, the true anti-Semite.

We have some here at Care2. Their names have been mentioned here. Make no excuses for them. They are not unconscious. They know their hate and spit their hate whenever they can. Make no excuses for them. They will not admit they hate Jews or are anti-Semites, but make no mistake, the lives of millions and millions of Jews have taught us who they are. Make no excuses for them. And let us be aware and learn to change.

Trust our perceptions – and help us, let us each help us, throw off these shackles of racism, sexism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. Let us help each other recognise who we are and what we are doing. Let us help each other free ourselves and banish this poison from all of our souls.” (© 2006 Knate S, used with permission.)

It really cannot be said better.

Realizing that I harbor prejudices against some people or Groups of people, because of their background, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or whatever it might be, is painful, and yet, recognizing bigotry in myself is the only way to up-root and out-root it in society. That takes courage, honesty and humility. May we all be brave, honest and humble.

Shalom!

UNDECLARED WWIII – Part 2 – Suicide Murders

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 16, 2006


I started picking Haim Harari’s Undeclared WWII apart HERE – this is the continuation. I don’t claim to be an expert on the Middle East, but I have had reason lately to do a lot of research and thinking – I hope that it will at least cause discussion.Suicide Murders

“These are the four main pillars of the current World Conflict, or perhaps we should already refer to it as “the undeclared World War III”. I have no better name for the present situation. A few more years may pass before everybody acknowledges that it is a World War, but we are already well into it. “

I think the title “The Undeclared World War III” – considering the illegal war in Afganistan and Iraq, perpetrated by the US – is a little over the top. It is playing into the hands of the American Adminstration, and I do not believe the US Government needs any pats on the back. It is however also important to point out that there is a clash of cultures and attitudes, that doesn’t necessarily run along traditional Nation/State lines – although the Terror Organizations we are speking of here in some cases are sponsored by Sovereign States – such as Hezbollah, sponsored by Iran and Syria, and they all do receive financial aid from States in the area, not all citzens of those Staes agree with their agenda. So to claim that this is a clash between the Arab World and the West is not accurate.

It doesn’t change the fact that there is a War going on and that the neutral Powers (i.e the United Nations) should take the reins and become a World Leader in this. The UN needs to undergo serious reforms – one such reform is that “resolutions” shouldn’t be passed by single majority. No Nation should be able to veto something. Parties that are involved in armed conflict should be treated equally, regardless of whether they are actual sovereign nations or not.

If a member country chooses to not pay their member’s fee, they should barred from the decision making process. And, the UN Peace-keeping Forces should be allowed to use weapons-force when fired on or when protecting civilians. It is absolutely ridiculus that the UN Soldiers are not allowed to fire back when fired on, to protect themselves and civilians.

 

“The first element is the suicide murder. Suicide murders are not new invention but they have been made popular, if I may use this expression, only lately. Even after September 11, it seems that most of the Western World does not yet understand this weapon. It is a very potent psychological weapon. Its real direct impact is relatively minor. The total number of casualties from hundreds of suicide murders within Israel in the last three years is much smaller than those due to car accidents. September 11 was quantitatively much less lethal than many earthquakes. More people die from AIDS in one day in Africa than all the Russians who died in the hands of Chechnya-based Moslem suicide murderers since that conflict started. Saddam killed every month more people than all those who died from suicide murders since the Coalition occupation of Iraq.”

For the sake of balance and clarity – please refer to this Wikipedia Page on Suicide Bombings.

 

“So what is all the fuss about suicide killings? It creates headlines. It is spectacular. It is frightening. It is a very cruel death with bodies dismembered and horrible severe lifelong injuries to many of the wounded. It is always shown on television in great detail. One such murder, with the help of hysterical media coverage, can destroy the tourism industry of a country for quite a while, as it did in Bali and in Turkey.”

One of the greatest problems with the Suicide murders is not the existence of it, but how MEDIA” glorify” it by giving each incident hours and hours, pages and pages of attention. If each incident was treated like any simple suicide – i.e something not very socially acceptable, I am sure that many prospective suicide murderes would never get strapped with explosives.

The #1 aim of terror is to terrify. The best example of how this was acheived in a major way is the US after 9/11, 2001 – the news channels carry “terror-alert” banners, rolling 24/7 constantly telling the American people that the risk of another terrorist-attack is “elevated” – thus creating a constant hightened stress-level – subconsciously at least, subsequently playing right into the hands of the terrorists. The major News Channels, like FoX and CNN are giving the terrorists free advertizing time this way, doing their bidding by spreading terror.

“But the real fear comes from the undisputed fact that no defense and no preventive measures can succeed against a determined suicide murderer. This has not yet penetrated the thinking of the Western World. The U.S. and Europe are constantly improving their defense against the last murder, not the next one. We may arrange for the best airport security in the world. But if you want to murder by suicide, you do not have to board a plane in order to explode yourself and kill many people. Who could stop a suicide murder in the midst of the crowded line waiting to be checked by the airport metal detector? How about the lines to the check-in counters in a busy travel period? Put a metal detector in front of every train station in Spain and the terrorists will get the buses. Protect the buses and they will explode in movie theaters, concert halls, supermarkets, shopping malls, schools and hospitals. Put guards in front of every concert hall and there will always be a line of people to be checked by the guards and this line will be the target, not to speak of killing the guards themselves. You can somewhat reduce your vulnerability by preventive and defensive measures and by strict border controls but not eliminate it and definitely not in the war in a defensive way. And it is a war!”

The Brittish have realized this. They are concerned, but not bothered. Years and years of dealing with the Irish Republican Army has taught them that they really cannot defend themselves against terror-attacks – but they can respond proportionately after the fact. The Brittish people didn’t go an a “self-pity bender” or demand any special treatment Internationally because some suicide murderers blew up some buses – they got off the ground and wasted no time on wallowing in their percieved self-importance. They simply went after the ones who did it, and ten day later they had caught those who where responsible for the planning and logistics. Then there was another terror-attack in London – and people don’t even remember what date THAT one was – and why? Because the Brits didn’t make a fuss about it – they just went to work catching the ones responsible – and they did. That’s a 200% success-rate compared to the Americans, who are still looking for Osama somewhere in Afganistan 5 years after the fact…*lol*

 

“What is behind the suicide murders? Money, power and cold-blooded murderous incitement, nothing else. It has nothing to do with true fanatic religious beliefs. No Moslem preacher has ever blown himself up. No son of an Arab politician or religious leader has ever blown himself. No relative of anyone influential has done it. Wouldn’t you expect some of the religious leaders to do it themselves, or to talk their sons into doing it, if this is truly a supreme act of religious fervor? Aren’t they interested in the benefits of going to Heaven? Instead, they send outcast women, naive children, retarded people and young incited hotheads. They promise them the delights, mostly sexual, of the next world, and pay their families handsomely after the supreme act is performed and enough innocent people are dead.”

This paragraph raised a couple of thoughts – the fact that no high-ranking American Politician or Military (desk-top Generals) have sons or daughters in Iraq – and me thinks that the reason for this is much the same as the reason why no high-rank Arab religious leader or politician send their sons and daughters out as suicide murderers. They know the reasons for the occupation/terror-attack are bogus, they know that what they stand for is immoral and unethical – and that wasting a life, any life, on something like that is just another lie.

 

“Suicide murders also have nothing to do with poverty and despair. The poorest region in the world, by far, is Africa. It never happens there. There are numerous desperate people in the world, in different cultures, countries and continents. Desperation does not provide anyone with explosives, reconnaissance and transportation. There was certainly more despair in Saddam’s Iraq then in Paul Bremmer’s Iraq, and no one exploded himself. A suicide murder is simply a horrible, vicious weapon of cruel, inhuman, cynical, well-funded terrorists, with no regard to human life, including the life of their fellow countrymen, but with very high regard to their own affluent well-being and their hunger for power.”

I am not sure I agree with Haim Harari about Suicide bombings not being about despair – I woul like to refer to my Blog entry “Loss of an Identity” – which deals somewhat with the historical reasons behind today’s Reign of Terror in the Middle East – lack of self-respect and a sense of not counting, can and will create despair, if given enough time and fuel.I like the fact that Haim Harari calls the people behind the suicide murders the actual killers. Because that is how it is. If this is a war, then the ones sending out the foot-soldiers, on both sides, are murderers – not the foot-soldiers. It’s like it is said about guns: “Guns don’t kill people – People kill People!”

 

“The only way to fight this new “popular” weapon is identical to the only way in which you fight organized crime or pirates on the high seas: the offensive way. Like in the case of organized crime, it is crucial that the forces on the offensive be united and it is crucial to reach the top of the crime pyramid. You cannot eliminate organized crime by arresting the little drug dealer in the street corner. You must go after the head of the “Family”.”

This is so true. Don’t spend money and time on going after the little guy – go after the Nation-Heads and the Business CEOs who send them out and fund them!

 

“If part of the public supports it, others tolerate it, many are afraid of it and some try to explain it away by poverty or by a miserable childhood, organized crime will thrive and so will terrorism. The United States understands this now, after September 11. Russia is beginning to understand it. Turkey understands it well. I am very much afraid that most of Europe still does not understand it. Unfortunately, it seems that Europe will understand it only after suicide murders will arrive in Europe in a big way. In my humble opinion, this will definitely happen. The Spanish trains and the Istanbul bombings are only the beginning. The unity of the Civilized World in fighting this horror is absolutely indispensable. Until Europe wakes up, this unity will not be achieved.”

For this we need a strong and an armed United Nations – a United Nations that can put armed force behind it’s words! Traditionally, UN Troops have been prohibited from using fire-arms when going on “Peace-Keeping missions”, even for self-defence – this has in my mind given far too much power to NATO and subsequently to the United States. This won’t work when dealing with military force that has as one of their point to hate America. First of all, the US is far too trigger happy and unreliable in terms of correct treatment of enemy combattants, secondly – UN is supposed to be INTERNATIONAL, and therefore it needs to be strengthened so that when it meets these terror organizations, it is not “tainted” by it’s dependence on the US and Nato to provide fire-power through direct threats of violence. It would also, in my mind keep the US put within it’s own borders, where it belongs, and not scourging the earth with it’s mental and physical napalm.The Security Council needs to be reformed, so that it comprises also of militarily neutral Nations, such as Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark and Norway – countries with a strong tradition of “neutrality” in terms of diplomacy and Human Rights. As we no longer live under a constant Terror Balance between East and West – the VETO can be removed, so that no member of the Security Council can sabotage an other wise unanimous Council.

Ok, til the next time

Shalom!

This is not a Satire

The Jewish Problem

Dr. William Pierce

I recently discussed the ongoing Jewish extortion effort against Switzerland. Jewish organizations claimed that Swiss banks were holding onto assets deposited by wealthy Jews in the 1930s and 1940s who later perished during the Second World War and so were never able to retrieve their money. Jews demanded that this money be put into a special fund for so-called “Holocaust survivors.”

More information has come to light about this Jewish extortion campaign, and I want to share it with you today, because it helps us to understand better the situation all of us are in. In the first place, let us be clear on the point that what we are talking about is not simply an effort by Jews to get back what rightfully belongs to them. It is not a matter of aging “Holocaust survivors” David and Sarah Goldblatt in Miami Beach trying to get their hands on an account their late uncle Abe set up in Switzerland before he was hauled off to Auschwitz in 1943 and never seen again. It is, in fact, a massive campaign of criminal extortion, complete with threats, deception, and fraud on a huge scale and criminal collusion by the Clinton government and the controlled news media.

The initial response of the Swiss to the Jewish demand for money was to state that Jewish depositors always had been treated just like all other depositors, and that Swiss bankers already had investigated their dormant accounts and looked for the rightful owners, and that there was at most a few million dollars in such accounts which might belong to relatives of Jews who had died during the war. All David and Sarah Goldblatt had to do to claim Uncle Abe’s money was present evidence that it was rightfully theirs.

This, of course, wasn’t what the Jews had in mind at all, and so they began applying pressure and making threats. Switzerland’s president at the time, Jean-Pascal Delamuraz, angrily accused the Jews of “blackmail” and “extortion” in trying to pressure Switzerland to turn money over to them without any evidence that they had a legitimate claim. But, unfortunately, Mr. Delamuraz was leaving office at the end of 1996, and his successor was more willing to pay blackmail in order to avoid trouble. Just to make sure that the Swiss got the message the Jews persuaded some of their Christian collaborators to join their campaign. Willing church leaders in Switzerland organized a public demonstration in Zurich by 15,000 churchgoers who demanded that the Swiss government and the Swiss bankers give “God’s Chosen People” whatever they wanted and stop accusing the poor, persecuted Jews of blackmail.

The Swiss bankers and the Swiss politicians are a bit more hardheaded than these pale, soft, hymn-singing churchgoers, however. Arguments that God’s Chosen People deserve whatever they want because the Bible says so have little effect on them. The real pressure was being applied to them out of the public’s eye. On January 10, 1997, billionaire Jewish liquor merchant Edgar Bronfman, head of the World Jewish Congress, met with the Swiss ambassador to the United States and threatened him that unless Switzerland coughed up $250 million immediately, the upcoming Congressional hearings by the House Banking Committee would be made as embarrassing as possible for Switzerland.

And other pressure was being applied behind the scenes. A group of New York Jews, claiming to be “Holocaust victims,” brought a class-action suit against three of Switzerland’s largest banks and petitioned the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to suspend the banking licenses of the defendant banks pending the outcome of the lawsuit. If such a petition were granted it would cause the banks to lose billions of dollars.

Israel got into the campaign when the Jewish Agency, headquartered in Jerusalem, hinted that it would call for a worldwide boycott of Swiss banks if the former Swiss president didn’t apologize for characterizing the Jewish campaign as “extortion.” The result of this threat was the apology which had been demanded. And Mr. Clinton’s State Department has been cooperating with the campaign by releasing a series of World War II documents, one every week or so, purporting to show that the Swiss were cozy with the Germans during the war. The release of these documents at this time is clearly a ploy calculated to embarrass Switzerland and put pressure on that country to bow to Jewish demands for more and more money.

The Swiss already have coughed up the $250 million demanded by Bronfman, and now the Jews are indicating that that is just the first payment. They are suggesting that $7 billion may be a reasonable total amount for Switzerland to pay the Jews. And the Jews claim that they can’t understand why so many people hate them!

It is clear in this case that the Jews will go for just as much money as they figure they can extort from the Swiss, and not a shekel less. And it is the shekels which count with them, not how many more people learn to hate them as a consequence of their behavior. That’s the way it’s always been with them. Of course, in this case it’s hard to feel sorry for the Swiss, because they chose to capitulate to the extortion rather than to fight — which is what the Jews calculated they would do. In this democratic era there just don’t seem to be politicians or businessmen anywhere with principles or a sense of honor.

Another interesting example of the Jews’ characteristic of pushing ahead arrogantly with whatever they believe is advantageous to them without any concern for the hatred which their behavior generates came to my attention recently. The great fad these days, the great media-promoted craze, is “diversity,” and Jews are to be found in every nook and cranny of the “diversity” movement. Jews produce the “diversity” propaganda, they agitate for new “diversity” legislation, and they always are pushing to cram more “diversity” down our throats. If they see any group of White people — the residents of an apartment building, students in a school classroom, a sports team, a Saturday-night poker club, any all-White group — they will try to force the group to accept three Zulus, a Chinaman, and a disabled Hispanic lesbian.

The idea, of course, is to exterminate us, to wage genocide against us, to leave us no opportunity to be among our own kind, no opportunity to feel a sense of kinship and belonging among our own people, no opportunity to organize and defend ourselves. They want to be the one and only self-conscious group on this earth able to act intelligently in promoting their group interests, and then the world will belong to them. They’ve been pretty successful so far in their campaign against us. They’ve been successful because they’ve kept their motives moderately well concealed, and they’ve been able to persuade large segments of our own people to collaborate with them in their “diversity” campaign by convincing them that it’s the “moral” thing to do. The hymn-singers are an example.

But sometimes their arrogance just runs away with itself and blows their cover. They put out a newsletter called Managing Diversity, which goes to all of the government agencies in Washington. It tells the bureaucrats how they can increase the amount of “diversity” in their bailiwicks and still keep things under control. It tells them how they can displace more normal, White government workers with Hmong tribesmen, wetbacks, or AIDS-infected alternate life-stylers and still keep the remaining Whites from rebelling.

In addition to this sort of practical advice, Managing Diversity also has a lot of “sensitivity training” articles in its issues: articles which are supposed to be posted for the White workers to read in order to keep them feeling guilty and cowed. An example is a front-page article in a recent issue of Managing Diversity written by Harris Sussman, Ph.D. Doctor Sussman’s article is titled “What Are the Values of White People?” And then this too-clever and too-arrogant Jewish “diversity” promoter turns and bites the very hymn-singers who have collaborated with him and his kind most eagerly. He writes:

It turns out that the white people we are talking about have been primarily Christians, often acting in the name of their Christian values … In the name of Christian values they had the Inquisition. They called native peoples “savages” who did not qualify as human beings. They set up definitions of pagans, heathens, primitives, undeveloped people which left Christians superior and dominant. They killed Jews and Gypsies in the Holocaust.In our post-modern vocabulary, “whites” or “the white man” is all we need to say to invoke this history and experience of injustice and cruelty. When we say “white people,” we mean the people who value things over people, who value money over people. We know exactly what their values are and where they lead. We have all paid a terrible price for those values.

Remember, this is a Jew telling us that we Gentiles are too interested in money. In the same article Doctor Sussman goes on to gloat over what he and his kind already have done to White people with their brainwashing campaign. He gloats over the psychological and spiritual damage his “diversity” campaign already has caused. He crows:

Many white people are uneasy with their own history. They are having a profound identity crisis … This means that many white people do not think of themselves as white people.

He then describes the many ways in which guilt-stricken Whites are trying to escape from their own identity and conform to what Sussman and his fellow Jews want them to be. He writes that many confused White people are trying to “adopt the values of native peoples. Look at ecofeminism, look at holistic health, Earth Day, the Rainbow Gathering.”

Copies of Managing Diversity can be found in every government workplace in Washington. Sussman figures that the hymn-singers will let him kick them in the teeth and then will lick his toes and beg for another kick. And, unfortunately, that’s exactly what many of them will do. There’s a sort of masochistic tendency among many of them. But there are a lot of us White people who aren’t masochists, a lot of us unreconstructed White boys who don’t react to Doctor Sussman and his kind the way they want us to, a lot of us who read what he has to say and then make a pledge to ourselves that one day we’ll rid our society of his poison, no matter what it takes. And, you know, there are some old-fashioned Christians among us too, who will be more than happy to help!

These two examples of Jewish behavior — the brazen extortion of hundreds of millions of dollars from the Swiss people and the arrogant gloating about the damage they have done to us with their “diversity” campaign — these two examples lead us to a closely related subject discussed earlier — the so-called “Holocaust.” We’ve looked at various aspects of “Holocaust” propaganda in the past, and we’ve uncovered some of their little psychological tricks, such as calling anyone who doesn’t swallow the whole myth lock, stock, and barrel a “Holocaust denier.” If you question any of their numbers about how many Jews supposedly were put into gas chambers, if you question a single one of their overblown atrocity stories, then you’re a “Holocaust denier,” implying that you believe that the Germans took no defensive measures at all against the Jews during the Second World War, when, in fact, you know that the Germans did try to rid themselves of Jewish influence.

We’ve examined some of these tricks of theirs, and we’ve explored some of their specific lies about the “Holocaust,” but the question remains: Why do they do it? Why do they push the “Holocaust” business so hard? Why, 55 years after the fact, do they keep playing the same tune? Why do they demand that the American taxpayers provide free land for “Holocaust” museums for them? Why do they demand that our children in the public schools be subjected to “Holocaust” propaganda courses? They are aware that many other peoples have gone through their own “holocausts”: the Armenians, the Germans, the Ukrainians, the Russians. Why is it only the Jews who keep pushing it, only the Jews who make it the focus of their lives, the essential core of their identity?

We know the answer to this question now. We understand that they push the “Holocaust” for two reasons: first, because they make lots and lots of money from it; and second, because it protects them from criticism and enables them to get away with the most outrageous behavior, behavior that would not be tolerated in any other people. They have just collected $250 million in cold, hard cash from the Swiss in blackmail money: money which the Swiss gave to them not because there was the slightest evidence that the Jews were entitled to any of it, but simply to avoid a boycott. Now, the Jews are aiming for $7 billion more from the Swiss the same way.

Anybody else who tried a stunt like that would end up in prison for extortion. The Swiss government wouldn’t have caved in to anybody else. If, for example, the heirs of Russian aristocrats who were butchered by Jewish Communists in the 1920s had made a similar demand on the Swiss bankers for lost assets, the Swiss would have fought them all the way. But they didn’t want to fight the Jews — they even apologized for frankly telling the Jews what they thought about the whole racket — because they knew the Jews would wrap themselves in the “Holocaust” and it would look like the Swiss were picking on the poor, innocent, defenseless, persecuted dears. They knew the Jews had them beat at the propaganda game, at the sympathy game.

That’s just one example of the cash value of the “Holocaust.” Another example is the $4 billion in American taxpayers’ money which goes to Israel every year. Germany has also given Israel billions of dollars over the past 50 years, paid for by German taxpayers.

Or consider Doctor Sussman’s boasting about the damage the Jews’ “diversity” propaganda already has done to the self-image of many gullible White people. Who else but a Jew would have the brass for that? And where does that brass come from? It comes from a sure knowledge that he can retreat into his “victim” status if anyone calls him to account. He knows that he can invoke the “Holocaust,” that he can wrap himself in the “Holocaust,” and his accusers will retreat in embarrassment. At least, the hymn-singers will retreat in embarrassment. And any harder-headed critic of the Jews or their behavior or their influence knows that he will be regarded as a bully by everyone who has been taken in by the “Holocaust” propaganda.

The fact is that we do have a Jewish problem in America. It is by far the biggest and most dangerous problem we have. It is worse than our crime problem, worse than our drug problem, worse than our political corruption problem, worse than our immigration problem, worse even than our race problem. Our Jewish problem, in fact, lies at the root of nearly all of our other problems. If we are to have a future we must solve it. We cannot let ourselves be buffaloed by the “Holocaust.” We must face the fact that, regardless of all the nice, inoffensive Jews you may know as individuals, all of the Jews who mind their own business, the Jews as a whole are destroying our society. Their policies are poison to us. And with their control of our news and entertainment media and their corollary control of our political system, they have a death grip on our country. We must have the courage to stand up to them and to do everything necessary to break that death grip. We must free our media and our government from their influence. We must make an example of the Sussmans and all of their collaborators. Otherwise they will destroy us as surely as they have destroyed every other society in which they were given free rein.

Fighting the Dragon

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 12, 2006


I came across these “informative” videos and left the encounter feeling as if I am fighting a 200 year old Dragon that, when I thought it was reduced to merely a head in my part of the world, it turns out that it merely emigrated…Children being indoctrinated…

Hatred from the Imam…

It is a wonder and a miracle that Israel is not being more violent than she is..

Shalom!
