Gilad Atzmon: Dershowitz is Desperate
In yet another attempt to destroy ‘The Wandering Who’, a book praised by the most relevant intellectuals, humanists and writers around, Alan Dershowitz ends up associating himself with the most despised and discredited caricatures in the Palestinian solidarity movement- The infamous sayan Tony Greenstein and his close associate Sue Blackwell.
If Alan Dershowitz really wants to understand the ideology and impulse that leads him to write such drivel, he must read “The Wandering Who”. It’s all there. He may also grasp why everyone else who reads the book, praises it.
To read Dershowitz ‘s latest rant.
Though it is obvious that Dershowitz didn’t read The Wandering Who, here is a list of (out of context and deliberately misleading) cherry picked quotes both Dershowitz and his sender in Tel Aviv hate in particular:
If Iran and Israel fight a nuclear war that kills tens of millions of people, “some may be bold enough to argue that ‘Hitler might have been right after all’” (179).
“It took me years to accept that the Holocaust narrative, in its current form, doesn’t make any historical sense. … If, for instance, the Nazis wanted the Jews out of their Reich (Judenrein—free of Jews), or even dead, as the Zionist narrative insists, how come they marched hundreds of thousands of them back into the Reich at the end of the war?”
“[E]ven if we accept the Holocaust as the new Anglo-American liberal-democratic religion, we must allow people to be atheists.”
Children should be allowed to question, as he did, “how the teacher could know that these accusations of Jews making Matza out of young Goyim’s blood were indeed empty or groundless” (185).
“The Holocaust religion is probably as old as the Jews themselves” (153).
“[I]n order to promote Zionist interests, Israel must generate significant anti-Jewish sentiment. Cruelty against Palestinian civilians is a favourite Israeli means of achieving this aim.”
“Jews may have managed to drop their God, but they have maintained goy-hating and racist ideologies at the heart of their newly emerging secular political identity. This explains why some Talmudic goy-hating elements have been transformed within the Zionist discourse into genocidal practices.
The “Judaic God” described in Deuteronomy 6:10-12 “is an evil deity, who leads his people to plunder, robbery and theft” (120). Atzmon explains that “Israel and Zionism … have instituted the plunder promised by the Hebrew God in the Judaic holy scriptures” (121).
The moral of the Book of Esther is that Jews “had better infiltrate the corridors of power” if they wish to survive (158).
“Many of us including me tend to equate Israel to Nazi Germany. Rather often I myself join others and argue that Israelis are the Nazis of our time. I want to take this opportunity to amend my statement. Israelis are not the Nazis of our time and the Nazis were not the Israelis of their time. Israel, is in fact far worse than Nazi Germany and the above equation is simply meaningless and misleading.”
