Alimuddin Usmani Interviews Gilad Atzmon

Appeared originally on egaliteetreconciliation.fr

Alimuddin Usmani: The writer Emmanuel Ratier released a new book named Le Vrai Visage de Manuel Valls (The real face of Manuel Valls). In this book he makes some astonishing revelations about the current zealot Zionist prime minister. The book focuses on the time when Manuel Valls was the mayor of a town inhabited by many Muslim immigrants. As Mayor,  he had a pro Palestinian slant. It could be that Manuel Valls suffers from a bipolar disorder, but it could also mean that if a politician wants to be  successful in France he must adopt a pro-Zionist position. Is this revelation of Manuel Valls’ past surprising to you?

Gilad Atzmon: This revelation is not surprising it reflects contemporary Western reality. In America the Jewish Lobby is dictating to the Secretary of State what terminology to use and what words to avoid  (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/04/state-department-explains-john-kerrys-apartheid-comment-amid-backlash/)

Even in the Palestinian  solidarity movement , it is the Jewish groups that dictate the terminology. This serves to divert  attention  from the fact that Israel defines itself as the Jewish State. In essence, Western politics has been Jerusalemized and the time for emancipation is overdue.  

Alimuddin Usmani: When asked by the French Israeli film maker Esti, "What does it mean to be a Jew?” the French writer Agnès Michaux had this answer : "It means to be part of an old time of world history, hence the difficulty of being a Jew today, being a Jew is archaic." What do you think of that?

Gilad Atzmon: Michaux’s answer does not reflect contemporary reality. Jewishness is  an extremely adaptable political identity. 2500 years of exilic identity led to the evolutionary development of a manifold of Jewish survival strategies. The political Jew can transform every idea,  thought and even occurrence into a part of the Jewish religion.

A lot has been written about the Holocaust being the new Jewish religion. It has all of the elements necessary for organized religion-it has shrines, spiritual leaders, redemption by vengeance, apostles, heresy, and even a  Christ figure - the Jew, the one who was reduced  to  ashes and then resurrected into an unprecedented global political   power .

But Judaism and  the Holocaust are just two Jewish religions among many. Marxism, Bolshevism, Human Rights, Gay Rights and  Moral Interventionism are all forms of Jewish religions. They are all righteous and driven by a sense of choseness  (progressivism). They all imply that others are inferior (reactionary) . In fact the new Jewish religions  have made the rest of humanity into a collection of ‘Others      .’ 

Alimuddin Usmani: Zbigniew Brzezinski recently expressed some courageous opinions. He defended the book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by Walt and Mearsheimer.  Despite that,  he supported a recent video that  he calls "Heroïc people of Maïdan" in complete agreement with BHL. How are his views coherent?

Gilad Atzmon: in general, I don’t even  try to trace consistency in political statements. It is likely that Brzezinski,   as an ex Cold War figure is failing to grasp the situation in Eastern Europe and its larger significance .  

Alimuddin Usmani: You were recently in Turkey. Erdogan regularly denounces Israeli policy towards Palestinians, yet he supports the armed opposition in Syria, which plays into the hands of Israel. What do you think of Ergodan?

Gilad Atzmon: It is interesting because I raised this exact question in every meeting I attended in Istanbul. In the west we tend to interpret Turkey’s Syrian policy as greed motivated. We believe that Turkey sees Assad’s regime as an obstacle   to the Gulf- Europe gas pipeline.

However, the Turkish academics and officials I communicated with deny that theory. They insist that Turkey has a  deep  interest in Syria   because  those northern Syrian cities were Turkish at the time of the Ottoman empire, and the human rights issue hits close to home.

I am not in a position to judge but I can say that  Turkish political thoughts are   far more complicated that what we conceive of them  in the west.  Turkey is a rising regional super power that is starting to  come to terms with its own history and its significant political and military role. 

Alimuddin Usmani: Foemen protested against Front National, shouting "Fascist Epidemic." They would never shout the same thing about Israeli nationalist and patriotic ideology.

Do these women practice Haskala?

Gilad Atzmon: To start with, if Fascism is all it takes for young women to march naked in the streets, I certainly approve of the rise of the right.

For a long time, the Left and the progressive movements have been  immersed in sound-bite culture. The Left  tags everything it fails to grasp as ‘fascism   .’These gorgeous girls do not seem to know what Fascism means nor they understand what ‘epidemic’ stands for. They fail to  grasp that Fascism actually refers to strong government that pursues a  national socialist ideology.   Facism holds that welfare and patriotism can coexist and even move society forward. Fascists contend that  such a perception of patriotic welfare is the only answer to globalization and Zionist interventionism.

Foemen are obviously a front funded by Globalist Zionists, some even suggest that it is the Soros network that supports them. I wouldn’t expect them to fight Zion, they are instead a Zionist funded front.  

Alimuddin Usmani: In a recent interview you said that you are not participating in the democratic game. Wouldn't you even vote for a person like George Galloway? 

Gilad Atzmon: Certainly not (and no offence to George),  I am not voting and have zero interest in the political spiel and the actors who are involved in the game. As an intellectual, my interest is in the meaning of that game.
