Israel's deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely attacked U.S. Jewry in an interview with i24 News on Wednesday . Hotovely referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country."
Introduction by Gilad Atzmon
When Palestine is concerned, the discourse of the oppressed is shaped by the sensitivities of the oppressor.
The following article was written in a disgusting attempt to ’educate’ the Goyim on how to discuss the Israeli-Palestine conflict without offending the Jews. Israel defines itself as ‘The Jewish State.’ Its airplanes and tanks are decorated with Jewish symbols. The Jewish state is institutionally supported by world Jewry. This means that the relationships between and among Israel, Zionism, Jews, Judaism and Jewishness must be open to scrutiny and criticism. The article’s author insists that this is not the case. He or she endeavours to set ‘guidelines’ -- a rule bound Jerusalemite mode of engagement that sustains complete intellectual, political and spiritual paralysis.
“…as Gilad Atzmon persuasively argues in Being in Time, a politics of reason has been thrown disastrously off course by the impact of a liberal discourse infected by the taints of ‘political correctness’ and ‘identity politics,’ which substitutes conformity and allegiance for truth-seeking and acknowledgements of the impurities of social reality. Without a suitable discourse respectful of the contingencies and unevenness of reality we cannot find the pathways to humane political behavior. To be sure, the Mammonite discourse of the Trump brand of right-wing politics is certainly no better, offering a greed-saturated form of materialism that feeds the limitless appetite of the very richest among us while manipulating and repressing the rest of us. As Atzmon provocatively insists, this absence of a trustworthy discourse by which to express grievances and aspirations is why it clears the air to admit that our epoch has become ‘post-political,’ at least for now.” (https://richardfalk.wordpress.com)
Fifty years on and it’s good to know that we have saxophone players in our midst like Gilad Atzmon who are not only brilliant in their own right, but are also capable of channelling the sound, the energy and the extraordinary creativity of jazz giant John Coltrane. Moreover, Atzmon has followed through on his enthusiasm for his muse by bringing out a celebratory album of – I want to say supreme – richness and quality. The Spirit of Trane is more than an exercise of paying homage to a great mentor, it is also a speculation about some of the places Trane might have gone had he lived longer.
The list of NYC’s 100 worst landlords is, once again, overwhelmingly dominated by Jewish names. Naturally, I wondered whether this bar mitzvah guest list quality also applies to the list of NYC’s 100 best landlords. If it does, problem solved. We would assume that since Jews are overrepresented in the NYC rental business, they are amongst the best landlords as well as the worst.
Jews are upset again. The latest kerfuffle is over a kids’ book called ‘P is for Palestine.’ According to the New York Post the book is infuriating some New York Jewish mothers — who charge that “it’s nothing but anti-Semitic propaganda disguised as a kids’ alphabet book...”
GA: The ultra Zionist Jewish Chronicle allowed a single voice of reason into its letters page this weekend.
Campaign Against Antisemitism was desperate to cancel David Icke's talk in Manchester last night. Labour MP, Kate Green, worked hard on behalf of the Lobby. They failed, Icke's talk, so i hear, was a great success. I looked into the 'evidence' levelled against Icke by the Zionist hate groups. There is nothing there as I prove in the following video..
We learn from the Israeli press that rabbi Yehuda Meshi Zahav, was lightly injured after being attacked by a racist white supremacist lioness while on tour in South Africa.

Being In Time: A Post-Political Manifesto' is Gilad Atzmon's latest pithy book - its title a nod to Heidegger, the John Coltrane of the philosophy world. It broadens the arguments of his previous 'The Wandering Who? A Study of Jewish Identity Politics' (which has sold internationally by the bucket load).
