    Gilad Atzmon's New Book: The Wandering Who? A Study Of Jewish Identity Politics

    Jewish identity is tied up with some of the most difficult and contentious issues of today. The purpose in this book is to open many of these issues up for discussion. Since Israel defines itself openly as the ‘Jewish State’, we should ask what the notions of ’Judaism’, ‘Jewishness’, ‘Jewish culture’ and ‘Jewish ideology’ stand for. Gilad examines the tribal aspects embedded in Jewish secular discourse, both Zionist and anti Zionist; the ‘holocaust religion’; the meaning of ‘history’ and ‘time’ within the Jewish political discourse; the anti-Gentile ideologies entangled within different forms of secular Jewish political discourse and even within the Jewish left. He questions what it is that leads Diaspora Jews to identify themselves with Israel and affiliate with its politics. The devastating state of our world affairs raises an immediate demand for a conceptual shift in our intellectual and philosophical attitude towards politics, identity politics and history.

    The book is available on Amazon.com  or Amazon.co.uk

    A Jew In Our Midst

    Introduction by Gilad Atzmon: The following piece provides a window into the morbidity of a Jewish progressive mind. Bill Weinberg is a self-described anti Zionist Jewish activist. He operates as a Jew under a racially exclusive Jewish political banner (‘New Jewish Resistance’ he calls it). He claims to oppose the Jewish State, but surprise, surprise, he also insists that such dissent must be run like a synagogue. He wants to determine who is allowed in to the resistance and who must be kept out – Weinberg, operating as a Jew, is issuing instructions on how to fight the Jewish State. I wonder is it really up to the Jews to decide who is kosher enough to speak against the Jewish State? Can you imagine for instance, the French resistance at the peak of WWII, taking orders from an ‘anti Nazi activist’ who identified politically and ideologically as an ‘Aryan’ or even as ‘Aryan Resistance?’ Just the thought makes me laugh.

    Weinberg writes, “I was biking down Second Ave., and saw the ‘FREE PALESTINE’ banner outside the church, and stopped to check it out... To my disappointment it was the highly problematic group “If Americans Knew.” It is obvious from its name that this is basically a right-wing nationalist formation with (at least) an anti-Semitic streak.”

    I would expect a ‘progressive Jew’ (a contradiction in terms, I know) to be concerned with texts distributed in synagogues and Yeshivas, but our progressive protagonist actually complains about the materials distributed by goyim outside their churches.  Maybe this is what Jewish chutzpah is all about.

    Weinberg is troubled by If Americans Knew, probably the most prolific and effective opponents of Zionism, Israel and Jewish power in the US. Alison Weir, the heroic warrior who founded and runs the organisation, has done more than anyone else on this planet to expose the depth and the history of Jewish and Zionist domination in America.  She and her small team believe that if Americans knew the extent of Jewish power, they might be more than a little upset. But Weinberg, the progressive Jew in our midst, doesn’t approve. Like the Zionist controlled media, he clearly prefers to keep Americans in the dark.

    Richard Silverstein on Israel Murdering Its Own Soldiers

    Introduction by Gilad Atzmon: The following is a superb article by Richard Silverstein. It explores the history and meaning of the IDF’s Hannibal Directive  - an Israeli military protocol designed to prevent IDF soldiers from being captured alive by enemy forces.  The directive orders commanders to take necessary measures, including endangering the life of an abducted soldier, to foil a kidnapping. In practice, the Hannibal Directive orders IDF combatants to kill their comrades in a case of abduction.

    Silverstein is horrified by the directive and its ethical and legal implications. He also believes that such a homicidal protocol is inconsistent with the Israeli military’s alleged heritage of caring for its soldiers.  But Silverstein’s perspective may be mistaken.

    It must be noted that military and civil law are distinctively different domains. While civil law serves to protect societal and individual rights, military law serves the system as a whole. This explains, for instance, why collective punishment is common and even acceptable within the context of a military legal discourse.  It serves the military’s interests as opposed to the rights of individuals.  The amusing adage “military law is to law as military music is to music,” captures the ethical absurdity that is entangled with military law

    The Hannibal Directive is consistent with Israeli national and military interests. From the point of view of Israel’s strategic interests, a captured soldier entails compromises Israel would prefer to avoid.

    Silverstein writes, “The Hannibal Directive embraces a fascist perspective in which the individual is subsumed within the mass.  He has no specific individual value unless he is serving the interest of the nation.  And his interests may, when necessary be sacrificed to the greater good.” Silverstein is addressing the issue from an ethical perspective within the spirit of enlightenment. But Zionism and Jewish nationalism are inherently anti-enlightenment ideologies. Zionism denotes the birth of the ‘Jewish people,’ the idea that every Jew is an integral part of a larger collective with clear tribal interests that outweigh the individual. Accordingly, in an extreme situation, the interests of the tribe are far more important than the individual rights. The Hannibal Directive is a glimpse into the depth of the Jewish collective bond and  tribal commitment. It exposes the level of commitment and sacrifice expected of tribal members.   

    Silverstein identifies the directive as fascist, but he should remember that Zionism predates Fascism and unlike Fascism that was largely defeated, Zionism has so far prevailed.

     

    Israel Murders IDF Soldier to Prevent His Capture

    http://www.richardsilverstein.com

    by Richard Silverstein

    I’ve devoted a good deal of my life to Israel.  I’ve studied, read, visited, lived, breathed it.  Not in the way diehard pro-Israel fanatics do.  But in a different way that matched my own intellectual and political proclivities.  It’s a subject that is rich, varied, troubling, bedeviling, and exhilarating.  But every once in a while I learn something I never thought possible; and I don’t mean this in a good way.

    Tonight, my Israeli source informed me that Sgt. Guy Levy, serving in the armored corps, was captured by Hamas fighters.  He had been part of a joint engineering-armored-combat unit searching for tunnels.  Troops entered a structure and discovered a tunnel.  Suddenly, out of the shaft sprang two militants who dragged one of the soldiers into it.  By return fire, one of the Palestinians was killed, while the other fled, presumably with the soldier.

    Hamas: A vicious, medieval, racist, genocidal organisation: Michael Oren of the Zionist entity

    by David Halpin FRCS  on 30th July 2014

     

    Jon Snow, the lead journalist on C4 News, returned from Gaza a few days ago.  It was clear from this blog  and in the one written as he flew back to Britain that he had been deeply affected by the deliberate injury and killing of children in Gaza.  This was evident too in his colleague Jonathan Miller, and in Lyse Doucet of the BBC. 

    Last night he tried to elicit truth from Michael Oren aka Michael Scott Bornstein, on C4 NewsOren was 'Israeli' ambassador to a surrogate US until last year.  He is described as an historian and in the Wikipedia profile as being one of the ten most powerful Jews in the US.  There is no hint as to how that is measured.

    Mr Snow was unable to tease out any humanity from the Tel Aviv spokesperson about the carnage and 'infra-destruction' within the Gaza ghetto, even though the occupier is bound in international law to safeguard the welfare of its 1.8 million humans.  He was interviewing a robot.  He did say that 'Israel' tries not to kill and hurt civilians, as with the four boys on the beach by the little fishing port.  But pull the other one Oren.  Furthermore, he inferred they were warned by the 'tap on the roof' (a fine euphemism) or by air dropped leaflets to flee wherever from more of the massive quantities of 'ordnance' aimed at their homes.  These rockets, bombs, shells and bullets are supplied in the main by the surrogate eg thermobaric Hellfire missiles, but the apocalyptic bombardment is aided by many NATO countries.  Britain has supplied the head-up cockpit display kits for those US F16s, and now or previously the bomb release mechanisms (EDO – Brighton).

    On Israel’s Doomed Fate

    By Gilad Atzmon

    IDF’s colossal defeat in Gaza this week leaves Israel and Israelis with just three political and personal options:

    1.     Mass expulsion – ethnic cleansing of the entire Palestinian population from territories controlled by Israel.  Such action may sound unreasonable or even phantasmic, but it is actually consistent with Zionist ideology and has many supporters within Israel and within the current Israeli cabinet. Moreover, oppression and brutality are embedded within Jewish political culture and even within the culture of the Jewish Left*. Clearly Israel possesses the military capability and fire power to proceed with such a plan for Nakba II.

    2.     Exodus – mass emigration of Israelis who, quite reasonably, prefer to run for their lives. This option is obviously embedded within the exilic Jewish culture and completely consistent with Jewish diaspora identity. Emigration is available to most Israelis at the moment. However, it is likely that as violence in the region continues to escalate and Israel finds itself complicit in more and more war crimes and human rights abuse, Israelis may find out that their freedom to travel around the world is gradually restricted.


    3.     Buying time –Israel’s favourite option. And certainly Benjamin Netanyahu’s preferred policy.

    While both the 1st and the 2nd options are consistent with Jewish ideology, heritage and culture, it is the 3rd option that has been chosen by Israel’s governments for decades. It entails constant devastation of Gaza by means of medium scale massacres in the hope that Palestinians will eventually surrender and accept the domination of the Jewish State.

    Just a month ago it seemed as if only divine intervention could save the Palestinians. However, as things stand at the moment, even God may find it difficult to rescue his favourite people. Israel has sunk into a fatal political, military and ideological paralysis. The destiny of the Jewish State has been revealed. It has no future in the region.

    The key to understanding of Israel’s paralysis is not complicated. As much as Israelis favour the deployment of their devastating military might and its fire power, Israelis do not like to be caught with blood on their hands. As much as they like to kill, they hate to be the killers. This dilemma has matured into a political, ideological, strategic and spiritual deadlock. It puts the Jewish State into an impossible scenario that makes dwelling on someone’s else land simply unimaginable.

    Noticeably absent among the viable options above is peace. Reconciliation is not a viable concept anymore. The notion of ‘peace’ as we understand it in the west (harmony and reconciliation) does not exists in modern Hebrew. The word ‘shalom’ that is commonly translated as ‘peace” is understood by Israelis as ‘security for the Jews.’ Israel has had plenty of time to reach harmony and reconciliation with the Palestinians. But it didn’t happen and for a reason. Israel is the Jewish State, it is ethno centric to its core, it is blind to the notion of universal rights and totally dismissive of the Palestinians and their rights.

    It may be crucial at this point to add that the final stage of the Jewish State and the genocidal enthusiasm in which it manifests itself,  throws a devastating light on Jewish culture and the dangerous aspects that are entangled with Jewish identity politics and Jewish national collectivism.

    * It was Stalin’s ‘willing executioners’ who wiped out millions of Ukrainians in the name of ‘collectivization’ in the 1930s (Holodomor). It was the Yiddish Speaking International Brigade that massacred Catholics and burned their churches in Spain (1936), once again in the name of the ‘revolution.’ It was the Zionist Left which expelled the Palestinians in 1948. Killing en masse in the name of a great ideal, be it Moral interventionism, Gay rights, or even Jewish suffering, is unfortunately, consistent with Jewish political culture and attitude.

    Poll Confirms -Israelis Love To Kill 

    Ninety-one percent (91%) of Israeli Jews support Israel's  campaign against the people of Gaza, according to a survey published Monday - and just 4.2% believe the operation is a "mistake."

    The survey also revealed that 85% of respondents would only support a cease-fire agreement if Israel eliminated every Hamas rocket and destroyed the full network of terror tunnels before agreeing to do so. 

    Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Israeli Jews polled "very strongly support" Operation Protective Edge's airstrikes on Gaza; 17% "support" the airstrikes; and 4.5% had "weak support" for the airstrikes. Just 1.5% of respondents opposed the airstrikes on Gaza.

    Similarly, 50% "strongly support" the IDF's ground offensive in Gaza; 28% "support" the ground campaign and 14% have "weak support" for the campaign. By contrast, only 9% of respondents oppose sending ground troops into Gaza.

    Jeffrey Goldberg And The Israeli Defeat

    By Gilad Atzmon

    As one of the first to predict an imminent Israeli defeat in this round of violence, I was delighted to read this morning that Zionist mouthpiece Jeffrey Goldberg admits that Israel has lost the war. “Why Is Israel Losing a War It's Winning?” asks Goldberg. The Jewish State is a regional super power, its lobbies dominate Western politics, it is technologically superior, so what could have gone wrong?

    Jeffrey Goldberg, a veteran Israeli concentration camp guard produces a few uniquely amusing arguments that deserve our attention.  

    He writes, “In a fight between a state actor and a non-state actor, the non-state actor can win merely by surviving.”

    I suspect Israel’s military leadership is aware of this argument by now. But the Palestinians have achieved far more than merely ‘surviving.’ They brought Israel to its knees. Palestinians performed heroically on the ground and displayed total unity, two things Israel did not anticipate.  They have also delivered a clear message to the Israeli people, to world Jewry and even to the miniature Jewish ‘anti Zionist’ clan – this battle is not about ‘occupation,’ 1967 or the ‘two state solution.’ It is about human dignity - the right to exist.  The Palestinians do not have any plans to fade away, they are the people of the land, and they will be back. The IDF may be able to destroy a few tunnels, murder elders, women and children and turn streets into piles of debris, but it can’t even scratch the Palestinians’ will. Eventually, even Goldberg may be forced to admit, that the Palestinians prevailed because their objectives and goals are far greater than mere ‘survival.’

    Bernard-Henri Levy and the Jewish Accusatory Inversion

    …by Romain Redouin

    http://vortexcourage.me/

    BHL

    It is quite noticeable that one of the most used Jewish tactics – especially among sayanim such as Bernard-Henri Levy – is the little known concept of “accusatory inversion”, consisting of constantly transferring your own symptoms onto someone else’s behaviour. The last BHL’s article in the New York Times [1] is nothing less than just a brilliant opportunity to grasp this methodical chutzpah:

    Although the recent plane crash in Ukraine happened a week ago and that the investigation is still going on, it does not prevent BHL to already title is article “Putin’s Crime” which already shows that his level of propaganda is as subtle as The Sun’s one on the day after the crash:
