The Meaning of Trump

Does Trump really mean what he says? Is he genuine or is he playing a game.  No one knows. But far more interesting, no one really cares and it doesn’t really matter. And this is probably the real meaning of Trump.

Can Jews ever leave their Cult?

This week, in the Jewish progressive magazine Mondoweiss, Avigail Abarbanel, an ex-Israeli and anti- Zionist informed us that she too has now ‘left the cult,’. I agreed with most of Abarbanel’s arguments against Israel and Zionism but I was nonetheless alarmed at the intellectual dishonesty at the core of her argument.

War Dogs – Film Review by Gilad Atzmon

Often in American cinema, a dichotomy is played out between the good and the bad. In this film the bad Jew destroys everyone around him including, his best Jewish friend who is also his business partner. The good Jew in turn also destroys everyone - but the difference is, he feels guilty about it.

Jewish Bigotry on Speed? Just Check Out Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

The rabbi warns the European Parliaments that if Jews leave Europe, liberty will come to an end. But reality suggests the complete opposite. No one asks Jews to leave Europe - it is actually Jewish institutions that prevent Europeans from thinking freely let alone revise their memory of their past. I suggest that rather than preaching to Europeans about the importance of Jews and Jerusalem, Rabbi Sack should take some time off from Jerusalem to study Athens.

Yawn…Jews Are Furious Once Again

Jewish campaigners have reacted with fury to the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn, warning that with the left-winger in charge, the Labour Party is “no longer a safe place for British Jews”. Maybe, but also maybe it is time to accept that Jews don’t feel safe anywhere -  not in France, not in Belgium, not in Monroe, NY, not even in Israel despite the IDF being one of the strongest armies in the world. But beware. If Jews do not feel safe anywhere, then makingthe Labour party into a Jewish safe haven may well be considered an anti-Jewish act.

The Wandering Jew

Rabbi Neuberger feels she finally has made her peace with Germany. If only we had known that all it takes for a Jew to forgive Germany and to put the Holocaust behind is a bit of British patriotism well, we could have saved ourselves a lot of time and energy.

Utopia, Nostalgia and the Jew

The progressive Jew grasps that the American working class are nostalgic for a pre-Jerusalem Dominated society; a time when American politics weren’t controlled by the likes of Saban, Soros, Goldman, Sachs and other global capitalists who are isolated from production, manufacturing and farming.

​Ernst Nolte-The Last German

An Obituary by Gilad Atzmon

Nolte attempted to examine German shame in a search for logos in German modern history. In fact, that logos is more relevant now than ever. Nolte realised in the 1960s that fascism was the great anti-movement: it was anti-liberal, anti-communist, anti-capitalist, and anti-bourgeois. It opposed modernity. It is Nolte’s inclination towards logos in understanding fascism that helps us interpret the popularity of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.  Both men are regarded by their followers as a counter force to the mommonite/oligarch establishment.

"Nazi Offspring sing Hatikvah" (beyond sick)

"Nazi Offspring sing Hatikvah" 

The title above is the exact translation of the Israeli title given to this horrendous  clip (see original here )

I do not know whether these multi-talentless singers and rappers have anything to do with German National Socialism but they really go out of their way to appease their Israeli friends. I guess that this is the ultimate form of voluntary capitulation. 

My grandfather was a terrorist, my father served in the Israeli airforce, I served in the IDF, I also want to apologise for the crimes committed by my ancestors. I just don't know where to start, too many anthems to learn... 

Thank you Jens for the English translation.
