Hypocrisy thy name is Zion

Jewish groups support BLM while ignoring Palestinian genocide

There is a tendency on the part of major Jewish groups in the United States and in Europe to discover what they describe as anti-Semitism wherever one turns. Last month, a statue of the well-known and highly respected 18th century French writer and political philosopher Voltaire was removed from outside the Académie Française in Paris. Voltaire was a major figure in the “Enlightenment,” during which what we now call science and applied rationalism challenged the authority of the church and the King.

The statue had recently been vandalized by the French version of Black Lives Matter (BLM) because Voltaire had reportedly invested in the French East India Company, which engaged in the triangular trade between Europe, Africa and the New World. The commodities included Africans who were destined to become slaves in the European colonies. Beyond that Voltaire, a man of his times, believed blacks to have “little or no intelligence” and also considered Jews to be born “with raging fanaticism in their hearts.”

Voltaire was reportedly much admired by Hitler, so perhaps it would not be off base to suggest that in France, where the Jewish community is extremely powerful while Africans are not, it was Voltaire cast as the anti-Semite that consigned his statue to a government warehouse never to be seen again. By that reasoning, one expects that the world will soon have a ban on the music of Richard Wagner and Ludwig van Beethoven as they too were admired by Hitler.

The idea that someone can change history by ignoring aspects of it means that school textbooks are being rewritten at a furious pace to make sure that there is overwhelming coverage of the holocaust and black achievement. Also, the erasing of monuments is being pursued with singular intensity in the United States, where the Founding Fathers and other dead white males are being one by one consigned to the trash heap. Doing so, unfortunately, also destroys the learning experience that can be derived from using the monuments as visual mechanisms for confronting and understanding the mistakes made in the past. A commission set up by the mayor of the District of Columbia has, for example, compiled a hit list of monuments and commemorations that must be either removed, renamed or placed into “context.” It includes the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument. The name “Columbia” is, of course, certain to be changed.

Interestingly, Jewish groups in the United States have been in the forefront in supporting BLM’s apparent mission to upend what used to pass for America’s European-derived culture. Ironically, that culture includes free speech, democracy and mercantilism, all of which have greatly benefited Jews. The narrative is, of course, being wrapped around the common cause of blacks and Jews together fighting against the alleged white nationalists who are being blamed by the media for much of the violence taking place even when videos taken at the scenes of the rioting definitely show nearly all black mobs doing the arson and looting.

And blacks who are skeptical of the Jewish role are quickly put in their place, as was Rodney Muhammad of Philadelphia, who was removed from his executive position with the NAACP after expressing skepticism about all the Jewish friends that blacks suddenly appeared to be acquiring, quoting an observation often attributed to the now disgraced Voltaire on a Facebook entry, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

The lead organization in shaping the acceptable narrative is the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which promotes itself as “Fighting Hate for Good.” In other words, anyone on the other side of the narrative is by definition a “hater.” ADL apparently advertised an online discussion topic for August 28th, shortly after the shooting incident in Kenosha Wisconsin that killed two white men and injured a third. The headline reads “Why all white American middle schoolers must publicly condemn the Anti-Semitic murders by white supremacist Kyle Rittenhouse.”

If the ad is indeed genuine, one notes immediately that the killings are being framed as anti-Semitism without any actual evidence to suggest that anything like that was involved or that the shooter knew the religion of those who were confronting him. All three of the “victims” are described as BLM supporters, which they apparently were, but it ignores the fact that they were also Antifa activists and all three had criminal records involving violence. One of them, Joseph Rosenbaum, is, to be sure Jewish, and also a pedophile, and the other two might also be Jews if ADL is correct, but that does not seem to have been material in what took place. Credible accounts of the shooting suggest that Rittenhouse was attacked by the three, one of whom, Grosskreutz, had a gun, and was being beaten on his head with Huber’s sidewalk surfboard. He responded in self-defence.

And ADL is not alone in its defence of BLM. More than six hundred Jewish groups have signed on to a full page newspaper ad supporting the movement. The ad says “We speak with one voice when we say, unequivocally: Black Lives Matter” and then goes on to assert “There are politicians and political movements in this country who build power by deliberately manufacturing fear to divide us against each other. All too often, anti-Semitism is at the center of these manufactured divisions.”

So, once again, it is all about the perpetual victimhood of Jews. That Jews constitute the wealthiest and best educated demographic in the United States would seem to suggest that they are especially favoured, which they are, rather than targeted by raging mobs of hillbillies. More than 90% of discretionary Department of Homeland Security funds goes to protect Jewish facilities and the Department of Education and Congress are always prepared to create new rules protecting Jews from feeling “uncomfortable” in their occasional interactions with critics of Israel.

Jews largely think and vote progressive, which is part of the reason for aligning with blacks even though rioting and looting is likely to affect them more than other demographics as many of them might still have businesses in the cities that are most likely to be hit. But there is also a much bigger reason to do so. Many blacks in BLM as well as progressive white supporters were beginning to suggest that the movement should broaden its agenda and recognize inter alia the suffering of others, to include the Palestinian people. A strong show of support from Jewish groups, backed up by what one might presume to be a flow of contributions to the cause, would presumably be a way of nipping that sentiment in the bud just as Jewish donors to the Democratic Party were able to block any language in the party platform sympathetic to the Palestinians.

It is of course the ultimate irony that Jewish groups are very sensitive to the suffering of blacks in the United State while at the same time largely ignoring the war crimes and other devastation going on in Israel and Palestine at the hands of their co-religionists. The beating and shooting of unarmed and unresisting Palestinians, to include children, the destruction of the livelihoods of farmers, and the demolition of homes to make way for Jewish settlers is beyond belief and is largely invisible as the Jewish influenced U.S. media does not report it. It is, simply put, genocide. And on top of that, Israel has been bombing defenseless civilians in Gaza nearly daily of late, attacking and destabilizing Lebanon and Syria, and also conniving with American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to go to war with Iran.
It should not be surprising if black groups would be suspicious of the motives of the Jewish organizations that suddenly seem to want to be friendly. When Rodney Muhammad was removed from his position with the NAACP in Philadelphia, Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of ADL, tweeted “Credit to Executive Committee of Philly NAACP & National NAACP for taking action here. We hope this will enable new opportunities for collaboration as the local Black & Jewish communities can do more to fight against hate & push for dignity of all people.”
Greenblatt has been a leader in the fight to criminalize both criticism of Israel and also the free speech being exercised by supporters of the non-violent Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS). For him, “dignity of all people” clearly does not include Palestinians or even anyone who peacefully supports their cause.

Old, successful Jewish lawyer made a KKK joke to a black female secretary and repeatedly groped her,

About the KKK stunt he said: “It wasn’t funny and I should have understood that before. But it was not racially motivated.”

Referring to his Jewish heritage, he said: “I’m not a racial person. I can’t be, with the history of my people.”

Germany connects Jews with Corona

• by ISRAEL SHAMIR • DECEMBER 6th, 2020 •

Germany, the powerhouse of Europe and the centre of the Corona restrictions battle, unleashed the Kraken against the disaffected. If you are not happy to wear a mask, stay-at-home, shelter-in-place, you are an anti-Semite. And this is a criminal offence in Germany, punishable by years of prison. It is certainly a scary accusation that can ruin your career, at least.

How did they build the logical chain from Corona to Jews, considering Jews weren’t particularly prominent among lockdown supporters? The Corona protests drew huge numbers of Germans, altogether in their millions. The government described the protesters as neo-Nazis. They unleashed their fierce dogs of Antifa to attack protesters. They tried to shame the protesters, saying they walk together with Nazis. This is standard procedure in Germany and elsewhere: describe your opponents as neo-Nazis and Russian spies. This is very far from the truth, but it does not stop the effort to delegitimise the protest.

The corona protesters didn’t like it. Instead of being against the Jews as described, they actually identified with Jews. They compared themselves to victims of Nazi persecution like Anne Frank and Sophia Scholl.
Anne Frank, a Jewish girl in occupied Holland, was forced to stay indoors and hide for many months. Her memory was awoken by an 11-year old German girl who had to celebrate her birthday in hiding from Corona police.
Sophia Scholl was a German Christian who bravely spoke against the Nazis and against the mistreatment of Jews. A young German woman said she “felt like Sophia” as she gave away leaflets against the government restrictions. What could be more anti-Nazi than such comparisons? This didn’t help them at all.

Such a comparison is “Trivialisation of the Holocaust, a crime under German law, said Felix Klein, Germany’s Commissioner for Anti-Semitism. He is not Jewish, but a great philo-Semite. It is a violation of copyright, he might add. How dare you compare your goyish problems with the Holocaust? It is only Jews who may compare whatever they like with the Holocaust.

And they do. Last week Peter Wolodarski, a youngish Polish Jew recently appointed chief editor of the liberal Swedish newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” (DN), called Donald Trump “antisemite”, while his editorial columnist Lisa Magnusson compared the brutality of the Belarusian police with that of the Nazis. A shocking trivialisation of Holocaust, this comparison. Fewer people suffered at the hands of the police during after-elections protests in Minsk than in Paris, let alone Nazi times when every fourth Belarusian perished. It is a peculiar claim to call Trump, the best friend of Israeli Prime Minister, an “anti-Semite”, said Stefan Lindgren, the editor of the independent Swedish site Nyhetsbanken. Jews are allowed to trivialise Holocaust and wake up the Nazi memories anytime, apparently.

German Jews were eager to please the government by confirming the Nazi libel. The President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Josef Schuster said, “Just as the demonstrators show complete disregard for the health of others so, too, they show no respect for the victims of National Socialism.”
Annette Kahane, a prominent Jewish SJW in Germany, went further. Among the protesters there are leftists, rightists, Muslims and Christians. This means that they are united by anti-Semitism, for there is nothing else to unite them with, she said.

... ... ...

Annette Kahane is a larger-than-life SJW. She was born into a privileged Jewish family in the GDR, and while at university, collaborated with the Stasi Secret Service, denouncing her schoolmates for their lack of devotion. She recognized the forthcoming collapse of the socialist state, and by the time of the Fall of the Wall Ms Kahane was already a great supporter of unification and a pro-Western freedom-fighter. She was able to hide her Stasi past for a while, but not for long. After unification of Germany, the Stasi archives were open, and her past came to light. But she survived it all right, and founded the German analogue of BLM in defence of black immigrants. Now she is a leading SJW, an anti-fascist fighting for every good cause against all bad causes. Her seal of approval had been quoted by German papers: so indeed, the Corona protesters are anti-Semites, if Ms Kahane says so.

That’s what interests me. Why, if one dislikes some hateful things: banksters, the bombings of Gaza, ill-treatment of Palestinians, George Soros, Charlie Hebdo, Antifa, War on Terror, Blairism, Corona lockdowns and masks and quarantine — it appears to be pure anti-Semitism? Why is the defence of the Jews always connected with defending the nasty policies of the rulers? Why are there powerful Jews who invoke the tragic Jewish history in order to protect certain horrors? Are Jews the willing scapegoats for the rulers of the world? Is there any nastiness the ADL and the likes of Ms Kahane would not subscribe to as their own? Are these immoral persons involved in a sinister plot against real Jews by making anti-Semitism an unavoidable choice of every honest man? Or do they feel some inherent quality of Semitism that we are not aware of?

Logic says, these accusations should be refuted as unrealistic. The Orthodox Jews presented the strongest opposition to lockdowns. In Jerusalem and in New York, they broke every restriction, and overcame every attempt to stop their prayer. They also voted en masse for Trump “the antisemite”. Who is a more authentic Jewish representative, a Jerusalem Rabbi or the shameless SJW hussy of Berlin? The rulers prefer ADL and their German snitches, for they are always ready to add the weight of dead Jews to whatever cause should be promoted.

... ... ...

Indeed, antisemitism is used as a tool and as a weapon everywhere, but it seems Germany is the only place in the world where Corona protesters are deemed antisemites. This is for two reasons. Germany makes it a criminal offence, so it is easy to brandish. The second reason is German Jewry. It is a special case. Once it was the most proud and distinguished of Jewish tribes, but very few of them remained in Germany. They moved to the US, to Israel, or perished in the war. Instead, Jews from other countries moved in. Peculiarly, they consider themselves — no, not German citizens, but overseers of Germany on behalf of the occupying globalist forces. I heard it from German Jews: “We were fostered on Germany so the Germans won’t ever go back to National Socialism”.

Michel Friedman is an example of a new German Jew. He was a politician with the Christian Democrats; then he ran afoul of the law. He hired a few Ukrainian prostitutes and offered them cocaine. Police discovered this by chance; he had to leave politics, but no worry, he became a prominent journalist. While writing for Vanity Fair, he trapped Horst Mahler, the German dissident.
After interviewing Horst Mahler, Friedman went to the police and denounced the old man for his Holocaust denial. Mahler was imprisoned and regained freedom just last month after many years of confinement. Friedman is still doing great, he has his own show on TV, and he calls Germans to fight hate, hate that he likely caused himself to a great extent.

... ... ...

An even newer German Jew is the pianist Igor Levit. At 33, he feels it is his duty to teach Germans what to think. He said that AfD, the German populist party, is a Nazi party and AfD members were “people who forfeited their humanity”. Bear in mind that AfD is the leading party for young people in many German provinces (Lands). They are populists of the Trump kind: they do not want more refugees, they do not want NATO, they do not want to fight Russia, or anybody else. Levit’s judgement is far too harsh.

An annoyed musical critic, Helmut Mauro wrote: “Levit is known as a Twitter virtuoso as well as a pianist. And that is apparently at least as crucial for a career in 2020 as making music itself. He is forever twitting to right persons and fights wrong ‘uns.”
Mauro compared Levit with another pianist, Daniil Trifonov. Both had moved to Germany from Russia, both are quite young, both are natives of Nizhni-Novgorod, but while Levit is the Paris Hilton of music, Trifonov is a real artist. Trifonov’s technical refinement, his perfect legato (which Levit unfortunately does not have at all), his sense of form, his high-risk emotional playing, his sense for the whole, for building tension, for sheer musical intensity, currently lift him far above others. And far above Levit, who receives endless prizes for his opinions.

Mauro was skinned alive, accused of antisemitism and his newspaper apologised for him (he would not). You can’t compare a Jewish and a non-Jewish pianist and prefer the goy, especially if this Jew keeps Germans under control! But things have begun to change in Germany. They do not respond to the dog-whistles like they did before. It is not enough to tell them “Jews good, Nazis bad”. A Trotskyite site reported on the development:

The Trot rejects it, calls Mauro and his critique “antisemitic” and supporters of Mauro “right-wing imperialist antisemites”. But that is expected. What was unexpected is that Germans are not silenced by this rhetoric anymore.

Levit received the annual prize for Understanding and Tolerance, which is awarded by the Jewish Museum in Berlin, though what is tolerant about denying humanity to a third of German youth? For sure, the Jewish Museum knows what is the correct tolerance, and to what views no tolerance should be allowed. But this Culture War is not over yet.

The world has great enough difficulties to manage as is, without the additional burden of the Jewish angle. For Jews it is better to avoid inventing unnecessary connections between Coronavirus restrictions and Mosaic Law, while Germans should try and sort out their politics without referring to Jews for good or for ill.

Jews in Germany can not accept that a Jew can just be in the wrong place at the wrong time. In their belief, no Jew can be attacked at random by a mentally ill person.
It seems in their world-view, there can be no such thing as a ‘random attack’ if a Jew is its victim. :roll:
German Jews angry at prosecutor’s decision not to charge an attacker of a Jew because of his ‘mental illness’

The Jewish community in the German city of Hamburg expressed outrage this week in the wake of a public prosecutor’s decision not to prosecute the assailant in an attack at a synagogue because of alleged mental illness.

The attack occurred on Oct. 4th, 2020. A 26-year-old man who had arrived at the Hohe Weide Synagogue for services celebrating the holiday of Sukkot was brutally beaten by the assailant, who wore military fatigues and was wielding a foldable shovel.

The assailant — identified as 29-year-old ‘Grigory K’ — was said to have been in an “extremely confused” state when he was apprehended by police.

At the start of his trial, the assailant was reported to have been calm. His victim, who is still suffering from injuries sustained in the assault, gave testimony.

The public prosecutor “is convinced that the assailant is said to have acted in a state of incapacity,” the Germany Jewish newspaper Juedische Allgemeine reported.
An expert attested that the alleged perpetrator had acute paranoid schizophrenia, accompanied by delusional fears of persecution that triggered the offence. The expert saw “no evidence” that “the accused pursued religious, ideological, right-wing extremist or antisemitic goals with [his] free will”.

This assessment flew in the face of the Jewish community’s assessment of the attack, who saw it as unabashedly antisemitic — as did a number of leading German politicians. After the attack, for example, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas denounced it as “disgusting antisemitism” and warning that it could not be regarded as an “isolated incident.”

Hamburg’s Jewish community responded angrily to the prosecutor’s announcement.
“It must be recognised that the Jewish community was targeted,” said Philipp Stricharz, the community’s president.
“How can antisemitic acts be prevented in the future if they aren’t identified as such?” he asked.
