Gilad Atzmon: The Jewish Division

 

I guess it shouldn’t take us by surprise that the Israeli flag has become a common feature at the ultra nationalist English Defence League's (EDL) demonstrations and gatherings.

The EDL calls for taking action against the "Islamization of Britain" and “Muslim fundamentalists”. It is a magnet for extremist right-wing activists and is driven by  xenophobia and ethno centrism. Recently the organisation gained an ‘important’ addition to its coalition of hatred. It is called the "The EDL Jewish division." According to the Jewish Chronicle “hundreds of (Jewish) followers” joined immediately. Supporters include an ex-Community Security Trust volunteer who claims "a lot of Jewish guys want to get stuck in". Another follower wrote on Facebook "we are all Shayetet 13", the barbarian Israeli Navy commando unit that was directly responsible for the massacre and executions on the Mavi Marmara. It is also notable that this Jewish bloodthirsty ‘patriot’ didn’t say ‘we are all SAS, British Navy or RAF’. He for some reason preferred to affiliate himself with a foreign Navy, a Navy unit that fights Jewish wars rather than so-called British ones.

I guess that the English Defence League's leaders are not aware of the fact that their ‘Jewish Division’ is there to exploit the new organization.

Roberta Moore, a prominent persona within the Jewish Division admitted this week to the Israeli Haaretz that it is “actually the Jewish Division that exploits the EDL.”*

As we are trying to recover from the devastating influence of the infamous ‘Labour friends of Israel’ and while becoming accustomed to the unethical impact of the “Conservative Friends of Israel” that already has succeeded in amending British universal jurisdiction, we are also becoming used to seeing the Israeli flag wave at us in extremist right wing demonstrations. Clearly, this is far from being a big surprise. The continuum between apartheid Israel, European Islamophobia, Melanie Philips’ Londonistan and Nick Cohen's anti Islam is apparent and transparent.

I learned from Haaretz’ expose of the Jewish Division that its leader Roberta Moore, 39, is a Brazilian Jew born in Rio de Janeiro, she once lived in Israel and now resides in north London. In the following video you can watch Moore preaching Islamophobia while covering her body with an Israeli flag.

Moore told Haaretz “We believe that if we call the enemy by his name, we will be able to fight him. We single out organizations that discriminate against Jews and Zionist organizations, and try to explain there is no difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism...The problem is that they (Muslims) are being brainwashed and believe they are superior to everyone else. They have the right to think that, but don't try to force your opinions on me and tell me the clothes I wear or the music I listen to are bad. Or that my beliefs are inferior and I must not do this or that. Why do we women have to cover anything?"

Interestingly enough, I also live in Britain, in London, probably not too far from Moore. I am a successful musician and a public figure and I can never recall Muslims trying to suggest to me what music to play or what clothes to put on. Astonishingly enough, I can recall Jack Straw (former British Home Secretary) suggesting to Muslim women what to wear and how to appear in public. Moreover, as far as I am aware, it was actually Jews, the  Board of Deputies of British Jews and the so called ‘Jewish anti Zionists’ who pathetically and unsuccessfully tried to block my music and writing. Also, it is Jews rather than Muslims who believe in being chosen.

If Jews like Moore believe themselves to be ordinary, why don’t they join the EDL as equal members? If racist Jews are as ordinary as other bigots, why do they operate within a racially orientated cell (‘Jewish division’)? The answer is simple, the Jewish Division is a continuation of Zionist supremacy and as Moore admitted, it is there to “Exploit the EDL”* or just to take it for a little Zionist ride.

“Islam is not a religion, but a cult, it has all the features of a cult” Moore emphasizes. Moore is obviously deluded. Not only is Islam a religion, it is also driven by an aspiration for peace (salam) universalism and humanism. It is practiced by a Billion people. It cannot be a cult or considered as such. However Jewishness (as opposed to Judaism) which Moore clearly succumbs to, contains all the elements of a cult. Jewishness, is a marginal ideology, it refers to a set of beliefs or practices that are reasonably considered strange from a universalist and humanist point of view. It is also a racially orientated supremacist ideology. It has even set a list of barbarian rituals that are known as the Zionist practice.

Moore is obviously a shallow human being and I won’t spend any energy debating her. However, the fact that she is proudly and openly preaching hate in Britain under the Jewish banner and carrying the Israeli flag is very significant. I guess that we should encourage her never to stop. Not only does she expose the true face of Jewish tribal politics, she also brings to light the true ideological impetus behind Islamophobia in Britain.

But there is another interesting aspects in Moore’s political attitude. Considering that Moore is an immigrant in this country, I find it slightly puzzling to hear her calling to Muslims to “get out of our land… go back to your home”. I guess that by ‘our land ’ she is referring to Britain. I wonder when did Britain become ‘her land’? And if it is her land, why is it her land more than other millions of Muslim immigrants who settled in this country like Moore and myself?

Moore offers an answer "they (the Muslims) are unwilling to respect the laws of the place.”  Moore must have failed to gather the obvious fact that Britain has  aspired to multi ethnic and multi cultural ideologies. It is actually Moore and her Jewish followers who fail to respect the British value system. She reverts to the most repulsive Zionist rhetoric “Let them go back home. They have enough places (to go to).” I wonder how would Moore react if someone  suggests to her to  consider going back to where she comes from, or where she belongs. 

Interestingly enough, Moore has many lands. England is her land. She doesn’t want Muslims here. But she also considers Israel to be her land. "I don't understand why the Israeli flag doesn't fly over Al-Aqsa [Mosque in Jerusalem]," Moore remarks. "That mosque is on our land." Seemingly, Moore like many other Diaspora Jews ‘owns’ very many lands.

I guess it will not be long before the English Defence League gathers the true motivation behind the newly emerging Jewish phony patriotism. The EDL claims to show support for the British armed forces. The EDL may want to find out what is the current representation of the Jewish community within the armed forces. The EDL better also check out how many Jews have given their life for Britain in Iraq, a criminal war that was enthusiastically cheered by Jewish Chronicle writers such as David Aaronovitch and Nick Cohen.

If Moore and her followers within the Jewish Division were slightly attentive to Jewish history they would gather that Jewish tribal patriotism has always been exposed for what it is: Judeo centric tribalism.

 

(*)“They think the league is exploiting us, while it is really we who initiated the Jewish division. If anything, we are exploiting them (the EDL) .” (Roberta Moore, Haaretz 13.7.10)
