The Netanyahu-Obama Flap

Michael Oren, the Israeli Ambassador to the US, says that the US-Israel relationship is at its lowest ebb in 35 years. Well, maybe.  But the Israel Lobby is far from dead. Half of Congress turned out at the recent AIPAC convention in Washington, and there were  pledges of eternal support by Hilary Clinton, followed up by a host of politicians. In the conflict between the Obama administration and Netanyahu, the media was solidly lined up on the side of a foreign country.  Indeed, as Philip Giraldi notes, “The Washington Post led the charge, calling on ‘expert’ analysis of the situation from Elliot Abrams, Danielle Pletka, David Makovsky, Aaron David Miller, Daniel Curter, Martin Indyk, and Charles Krauthammer while excoriating the White House with its own lead editorials.”

Dominating the mainstream media definitely has its advantages.

Meanwhile, more than 3/4 of the House of Representatives signed on to a statement asserting “unbreakable bonds” between the US and Israel and ludicrously asserting that “A strong Israel is an asset to the national security of the United States and brings stability to the Middle East.”

We are reassured that Prime Minister Netanyahu’s commitment to put in place new procedures will ensure that such surprises [a municipal Jerusalem announcement on approval of another step towards the construction of 1,600 apartments in a post-1967 Jerusalem neighborhood during U.S. Vice President Biden's recent visit to Israel], however unintended, will not recur.

In other words, the House is satisfied that Israel will not to make any surprise announcements that coincide with a visit of a US dignitary. But the House does not expect Israel to stop confiscating Palestinian land and building housing for Jews. Business as usual. Don’t ask. Don’t tell.

There is a long history in which Congress is far more susceptible to pressure from the Israel Lobby than the administration. Congress understands that opposition to the lobby means that their opponents will suddenly have a great deal of money donated by Jews who live outside their districts and they will have far less positive media coverage.

On the other hand, American presidents must at least make a show of promoting peace in the region, and that means putting up a credible facade to other countries. All American administrations since Carter have officially opposed the colonization of the West Bank, and this has at times led to well-publicized conflict. For example, in 1992 the first Bush administration attempted to withhold loan guarantees for Israeli housing. It backed down, with Bush famously saying “I’m one lonely little guy” up against “some powerful political forces” made up of “a thousand lobbyists on the Hill.” Bush seems to believe that his defeat in the 1992 election stemmed from this action, and I can vividly remember the sudden shift in media coverage of Bush at the time. George W. Bush’s awareness of the power of the Israel Lobby from conversations with his father may well have been a primary force in making him the most pliable president  in history to the pleadings of the Israel Lobby.

The clincher from the House statement is: “Above all, we must remain focused on the threat posed by the Iranian nuclear weapons program to Middle East peace and stability.” And therein lies the rub for AIPAC. For all its influence on Congress, it will be much more difficult to get an angry Obama and his administration fully on board with the Israel Lobby’s project of destroying Iran. The reality of the Lobby’s power even in presidential politics, as indicated by what happened to George H. W. Bush,  is doubtless sobering to the Obama administration. But it’s one thing to effectively turn a blind eye to Israeli colonization and apartheid (as, in the end, all US administrations have done). It’s quite another ball of wax to get the US to lead the charge in a confrontation with Iran after 5000 deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan and a $3 trillion price tag just for the war in Iraq. This in an era where the federal deficit is already through the roof. Doing the Israel Lobby’s bidding on Iran requires a great deal of pro-active effort in getting international cooperation in the teeth of Israeli intransigence on settlement issues and the spectacle of Israel as an expansionist apartheid state for all the world to see.

Indeed, in her speech to AIPAC Hilary Clinton pointedly noted that “We cannot escape the impact of mass communications” — perhaps a comment that the reality of Israel’s brutal program of expansion is a very hard sell to the rest of the world, especially in the age of the Internet when there is more and more leakage in Jewish control of the media in the US and elsewhere. The statement by General David Petraeus that Israeli policies oppose US vital interests in the Middle East is all over the Internet — much to the chagrin of the ADL Petraeus himself has done his best to limit the damage by disputing this account.

It’s the same for Joe Biden’s statement that Israeli policy is dangerous for the US. It’s also all over the Internet,  quoted, for example, by John Mearsheimer in his blog – despite denials by Biden that he ever said it. As Mearsheimer notes, “it is now commonplace to talk about the lobby in the mainstream media and almost everyone who pays serious attention to American foreign policy understands – thanks mainly to the internet – that the lobby is an especially powerful interest group.”

With information about Israel more available than ever, with the costs of doing Israel’s bidding ever more prohibitive, and with Israel getting ever uglier with the passage of time, the job ahead for the Israel Lobby is going to be increasingly difficult. And Israel can’t escape its ugliness. The slow motion ethnic cleansing and land grabbing, the apartheid, the vast open air prisons for 3.8 million Palestinians simply can’t be stopped by any force within Israeli society. And it certainly won’t be stopped by the Jewish Diaspora no matter how much hypocrisy that entails given its commitment to multiculturalism and its opposition to White ethnonational interests. The racialist and religiously fundamentalist right is firmly in charge in Israel, and all the Jewish demographics are on their side. The extremists, as always, will win the day. That forecasts a very bloody future in the Middle East and beyond. And here in the US, AIPAC and the ADL have a long, tough road ahead.

    Only if we control more of the media.

    For the life of me, I cannot understand why our electoral system puts Clinton, Bush and then Obama in the Whitehouse. Is there not one American who will stand up to the Jews? If it means one term, so what? A lot can be done in 4 years.

    There is certainly an apparent hypocrisy in U.S. Jewish Zionists prescribing multiculturalism for America while simultaneously being the linchpin factor in enabling apartheid and ethnic cleansing in Israel — that is, until one realizes that organized Jewry is consistently racist in both cases. It’s just that in the U.S., the primary target of their racism is Gentile “whites,” whereas in Israel, the primary target of their racism is Gentile “browns.” In both cases, disenfranchisement of the majority to Jewish advantage is the goal (remember, Arabs were once the majority in Palestine), with the constant “value” being Jewish supremacism, which can easily be traced to their religious documents and cultural ethic.

    Doesn’t every culture or religion consider itself to be supreme? Indeed, but only organized Jewry systematically, consciously and methodically goes about subverting and co-opting “host” societies by means of infiltration, subjugation and coercion, as do organized Jewish interests. This modus operandi has been consistent, from the Jewish Zionists back through the white-hating Jewish Bolsheviks (who murdered millions of Christians) all the way back to, say, Esther.

    It’s also evident today in the Jewish media’s racist hostility to the “mostly white” Tea Party movement.

    Jewish Zionists might reply that their “survival” is at stake, so it’s all justified. But the problem with this line is that it’s their consistent racism (which, after all, is simply vicious tribalism of which multiculturalism is ancillary) that, over time, jeopardizes their survival to begin with.

    The Israelis control Egypt – or at least the Armani clad leadership – through the massive aid Egypt gets from the US.

    In 2009

    THE Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee inserted $260 million in fresh security assistance for Egypt into a supplemental appropriations bill, along with $50 million for border security. No conditions were attached.

    EGYPTIAN police shot dead two African migrants as they tried to cross the border into Israel on Saturday, security and medical sources said. Five other African migrants were injured, and police detained a further three, the sources said. Egyptian police have killed 11 migrants this year, and at least 19 were killed last year.

    “…it’s one thing to effectively turn a blind eye to Israeli colonization and apartheid….It’s quite another ball of wax to get the US to lead the charge in a confrontation with Iran…”

    But what happens if Israel leads the charge without getting the green light from America first?

    According to a 2006 study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Israeli warplanes would have to overfly one of three countries: Turkey, Saudi Arabia or Iraq.

    Turkey is not on good terms with Israel right now and would almost certainly forbid Israeli planes from entering its air space in any bombing mission en route to Iran. Saudi Arabia would refuse also because its oil fields would then be at risk as a result of its complicity with Israel. That leaves Iraq — whose air space is under American control.

    If America gave Israel permission to overfly Iraq, it would in effect be behind the Israeli attack. Iran would then be justified in taking punitive action against America in Iraq. Iraq would become a tinder box.

    If, on the other hand, Israel decided to fly over Iraq WITHOUT asking America for prior permission, America would be obliged to shoot down the Israeli planes. Not to do so would indicate a complete and abject capitulation to Israel.

    It’s time America got tough with Israel.

    Shooting down a few Israeli planes would be a good start.

    Israel has now become a genuine threat to America and to world peace.

    KMac mistakes periodic Dog-and-Pony show (rhetorical critique of latest Israeli faux pas/atrocity by this or that US administration) for actual conflict. Meanwhile, flow of US weapons and $$$ into Zionist coffers continues. Now I don’t doubt that, given his distant political background – various pro-Palestinian involvements – Obama is a little queasy about the Israel thing. But he also knows who overwhelmingly finances and gives media traction to himself and his political party: Jews, rich Jews, and Zionist organizations; AIPAC is only the tip of the iceberg. So the Iran War is a done deal. It is merely a question of when. Think back to Truman, 1947-48. Partition of Palestine was coming up for a decisive vote at the UN, and HST (who knew a future disaster when a saw one) was known to be against: thus no Jewish state. But he also looked forward to a difficult election against Dewey and, when rich Zionists threatened to withhold $$$ and media traction, he folded. Same situation with Obama, early 2012. When it comes, the Iran War will lead to skyrocketing oil prices, massive dollar dumps by China and Japan, a run on the dollar worldwide, and a collapse of the US economy. From various hard right viewpoints – anti-Zionist, White Nationalist, others – this is going to be all good.

    This is nothing but show. Something big is about to happen and for some reason the US and Israel are supposed to be at odds when it happens. Whatever is about to happen (another false flag operation, perhaps) is designed to draw the US and Israel togther so the US will fight Israel’s battle. I predict a strike somewhere in the United States or on a US target by Mossad and blamed on Iranians. Perhaps some dull-witted Iranians recruited by Mossad to commit a terrorist act so as to place public sentiment in the correct perspective.

    As long as Priests and Ministers tell their Christian congregation that Jews are God’s chosen people, as long as Congressmen and Senators are more concerned about having a career in politics as opposed to doing their job, as long as the Jews completely control the media, education, and finances, the US will continue to fight wars for Israel. Since none of the above will change, because only a cataclysmic collapse of the US would cause this, the Iran war is an eventual certainly. Am actually surprised if it does not happen by May, as they have all the bunker busters, land based missiles, and naval vessels in place, plus Spring is an ideal time to start another war.

    On a very related note, what really cracks me up is how some people believe that the Jews wish to destroy Christianity. Nothing could be further from the truth, as the Jews need the mind controlling influence of Christianity to hypnotize the goy sheeple. They invented Christianity for Christ’s sake!

    When they forbid manger scenes and replace them with menorahs, the goy start quoting the Jew Jesus “turn the other cheek”. When they see the Jew bankers steal their homes and money, they babble about the “kingdom of Heaven” that the Jew Jesus promised them. When their children are sent overseas to murder, rape, pillage, and die, they talk about protecting the land of God’s chosen people.

    The Jews are laughing their ass off right now, because they have once again gained complete control of an empire without firing one bullet. As they done many times during at least the last 3000 years, they are bleeding and feeding off of their host country, and will not stop until it is a dead husk. The only way to fight them is to eradicate their bastard religion of Christianity.

    Since that will not happen, the US is doomed.

    How in heck did America wind up putting so many politicians into power in Washington D.C. that are obviously certifiably, and pathologically, insane? I mean, everyone with a brain bigger than golf ball now knows that we were lied into these wars – and the only sane reaction to knowing this has to be – anger, outrage, and an immediate demand to withdraw and then prosecute the liars who did the lying. Right? So,
    we hear these fools calling for MORE wars?

    I’ve been reading the A3P news releases and position papers, and I’d like to recommend that they add requirements for the following two measures to be enacted: (1) All candidates for political office be required to submit to a background investigation equivalent to those needed to obtain a military and/or government security clearance of at least the ‘secret’ level.
    (2) All candidates for political office, if elected, prior to being sworn into office – agree to undergo a medical examination to determine mental health and to look specifically for indications of psychopathy.

    Failing either of these two requirements should be grounds for permanent life time bans from holding political office of any kind.

    Unless, someone else here has a better idea of just how we can cleanse these massive numbers of psychopaths out of the positions of power in Washington D.C.?

    Some call it Marxism — I call it Judaism.” (The American Bulletin, Rabbi S. Wise, May 5, 1935).

    “It is legitimate to adopt a critical attitude toward the relatively large number of Jews who particularly in the first decade after the Bolshevik revolution collaborated with the Soviet Government in the persecution of other peoples.” — Statement of researcher Michael Mills, an official of the government of Australia at Canberra. (Source: Forward, March 10, 2000)

    — Robert Wilton, a long time Russia correspondent for the London Times, said in his book The Last Days of the Romanovs:

    “According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State there were in 1918-1919: 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Lets, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian, 10 Georgians, 2 Poles, 2 Finns, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews.

    “As the decades past by — after the fateful year 1917 — Judaized Khazars kept a firm hand on the helm of the government in the occupied land of Russia. In due time they built a bureaucracy to their heart’s desire.”

    “The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism.” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 143-144).

    The American Hebrew September 10, 1920:

    “The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose goal is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction, and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality all over the world.”

    “The Jews welcome this revolution in the Christian world, and the Jews should show an example. It is not an accident that Judaism gave birth to Marxism, and it is not an accident that the Jews readily took up Marxism: all this was in perfect accord with the progress of Judaism and the Jews.” (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, by Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 148).

    “We have exterminated the property owners in Russia. We are going to do the same thing in Europe and America.” (The Jew, December 1925, Zinobit).

    Americans have no opinions or views of their own. Opinions and their view of the world has been given to Europeans by the indoctrination devices; television, radio, print, education machine, and the textbooks of education facilities.

    Europeans regurgitate their indoctrination when witnessing world events. Their feelings towards Nazis, Jews, Arabs, the holohoax, and etc. were indoctrinated into them from the time of their birth. “Nazis are bad, Jews are kind and considerate, white people are bad, blacks are kind and considerate, Arabs are evil, Jews are kind and considerate”.

    This indoctrination is pounded into the heads of all Europeans.

    You are so right. Here you’ve got it from the horses’ mouth:
    (google des measce)

    Things psychological (Addendum to an essay by Dr. Roger G. Dommergue
    Polacco de Menasce, Docteur de l’univertite de Paris, in a response to
    the TV shows “Océaniques” in FR 3 dated 7. und 14. Dezember 1987 ,of
    the gentlemen André Glücksman – Georges Steiner – Michel Cazenave –
    Jean Faye – François Fédierm, under the title ‘Auschwitz: The silence
    of Heidegger or minor details’) [Roger G. Dommergue Polacco de Menasce
    is Jewish ( his mother is Jewish ). Famous French-Jewish family].

    When I was in Israel in 1972 I attended a speech, which an Israeli
    historian held in front of a group of Jewish colonialists who had
    recently arrived in the country. I freely asked him about the honesty
    of the chimerical insistence on the gassing of 6,000.000 Jews and
    expressed my doubts about the usefulness of the “Holocaust”
    propaganda. It seems that I tickled him at the right spot i.e. at an
    open nerve. The speaker immediately started to talk in that disgusting
    Russian of the ghettos, which still is spoken by many Jews.
    ” It is not important to know who sh@ on the carpet”, he shouted with
    audible pain in his voice. ” It is not important to know whether the
    Jews did it themselves, but we always have to grab the goyim by the
    scruff of their necks, like puppies and press their noses into the
    sh*t, and I can assure you, that everytime we do it, they feel guilty.
    And believe me, the American Congress will vote everytime for 10
    billion dollars for Israel. Because I tell you, if you deliberately
    treat a group of people like puppies. you will have them eating out of
    your bed side utensil. It is the only way to keep the goyim under our
    boot. After all, it is us Jews who invented the science of psychology.
    So, why should we be so stupid and not use it to our advantage? People
    often say that Christianity is the main source of anti-semitism.That
    is utter non-sense. I am telling you that Christianity is for us the
    most advantageous error that we ever fabricated. It fills the goyim
    with guilt. It turns them into spiritual cripples.

    You know that the Catholic church saved every baptised Jew and
    thousands of unbaptised Jewish children. That’s the stupidity of the
    goyim. You know that the American goyim 100 years ago were embroiled
    in a civil war and bashed each others heads in to liberate the Negros.
    And now the Negros can bash their heads in, day and night and at any
    place. Only thanks to Christianity do the goyim have this pathological
    feeling of guilt.

    And now I am asking you, in which country other than Christian
    countries dare Jews make billions of dollars and then disappear with
    it?

    And I am telling you, the communists are a thousand times worse than
    the NAZIS. The NAZIS were great idealists. That’s the reason  why they
    lost the war.

    The communists are of such low cynicism, that they will never start a
    war, without being absolutely sure, that they are going to win it.
    Maybe the NAZIS made soap from some Jews, after all the rich Jews had
    emigrated. So what? What could the poor Jews do for Israel? But the
    communists are far worse. because they are in the process of
    transforming millions of Jews into goyim, even whithout having to
    baptise them.

    Thank you Xantippe for having two functional frontal lobes. If even half of the World was inhabited with thinking people such as yourself, the self chosen people would have to crawl back into the hole they came from. The fact that people attempt to discredit the self chosen ones by quoting from the fairy tale book (Bible) they wrote hurts me badly every time.

    This is like a drug addict asking the dealer to help cure his habit, or a hooker asking the pimp to get her off the streets, or the citizen asking the corrupt politician (redundant) to act in societies best interest. Gee, mister master of me Jew Sir, the guide book you gave me to read says you should act in a more benevolent manner towards me. Christians deserve every bad fate they created for themselves.

    The stupid brain dead Europeans, who were all given Free Will by the Infinite Creator, have chosen to worship the Jews above God itself, while the Jews openly declare themselves to be God itself. They are told by their Jew controlled Priests/Ministers that seeking advice from their creators, the Sun and Earth, is evil Paganism. They then ask for penance while giving extra money to the Priests/Ministers collection plate, while this parasite monster checks out their wife and children.

    All Christian Churches, Bibles, and Priests/Ministers should be burned to ashes, and all discussion of Jesus should carry the death penalty. It is all a slave philosophy and has destroyed the European Race. The Infinite Creator gave Humanity Free Will, in order to evolve and become co-creators, and actually does not give a crap what they do with it.

    Human Life is an experiment, and the formless and timeless Infinite Creator gets its rocks off by performing these experiments. Humanity is currently a complete failure on the precipice of self annihilation, but the Infinite Creator has all eternity, so really does not give a s#*t how this particular experiment turns out. When Humans wake up to this, they might learn to survive themselves and fulfill their destiny.

    That is quite doubtful though.

    Clearly this is orchestrated, and it is very, very frightening. First, it is a total fabrication. Second, it is bringing to the surface the already understood (by those who are aware) REAL, substantive line in American politics -those who are pro-Jewish supremacy and those who are against it. This will basically bring this line to the surface in a major way in the next election. Very, very soon we will be electing our representantives, right out in the open, on whether or not they are pro Israel. The defining issue will no longer be sub rosa. And that will cause a cataclysm of epic proportions. We WILL either be the slaves of the Jews or we will not. No more beating around the bush. And I’m not hopeful about which way we will go. Being pro-Israel has already become a part of being a Conservative. Soon there will be no question whatsoever about it being a part of being an American as well. This is truly frightening.

    Bless my soul, I do not blame anybody for disliking anybody. The thing that intrigues me about this anti-Jewish business, as you play at it, is your total lack of grit. You are so indirect and roundabout with it, you make such fantastic and transparent excuses, you seem to be suffering from self-consciousness so horribly, that if the performance were not grotesque it would be irritating.

    It is not as if you were amateurs: you have been at it for over fifteen centuries. Yet watching you and hearing your childish pretexts, one might get the impression that you did not know yourselves what it is all about. You resent us, but you cannot clearly say why. You think up a new excuse—a “reason” is what you call it—every other day. You have been piling up justifications for yourselves these many hundreds of years and each new invention is more laughable than the last and each new excuse contradicts and annihilates the last.

    Not so many years ago I used to hear that we were money-grubbers and commercial materialists; now the complaint is being whispered around that no art and no profession is safe against Jewish invasion.

    We are, if you are to be believed, at once clannish and exclusive and unassimilable because we won’t intermarry with you, and we are also climbers and pushers and a menace to your racial integrity.

    Our standard of living is so low that we create your slums and sweated industries, and so high that we crowd you out of your best residential sections.

    We shirk our patriotic duty in wartime because we are pacifists by nature and tradition, and we are the arch-plotters of universal wars and the chief beneficiaries of those wars (see the late “Dearborn Independent,” passim, and “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”).

    We are at once the founders and leading adherents of capitalism and the chief perpetrators of the rebellion against capitalism.

    Surely, history has nothing like us for versatility!

    And, oh! I almost forgot the reason of reasons. We are the stiff-necked people who never accepted Christianity, and we are the criminal people who crucified its founder.

    But I tell you, you are self-deceivers. You lack either the self-knowledge or the mettle to face the facts squarely and own up to the truth. You resent the Jew not because, as some of you seem to think, he crucified Jesus but because he gave him birth. Your real quarrel with us is not that we have rejected Christianity but that we have imposed it upon you!

    Your loose, contradictory charges against us are not a patch on the blackness of our proved historic offense. You accuse us of stirring up revolution in Moscow. Suppose we admit the charge. What of it? Compared with what Paul the Jew of Tarsus accomplished in Rome, the Russian upheaval is a mere street brawl.

    You make much noise and fury about the undue Jewish influence in your theaters and movie palaces. Very good; granted your complaint is well-founded. But what is that compared to our staggering influence in your churches, your schools, your laws and your governments, and the very thoughts you think every day?

    A clumsy Russian forges a set of papers and publishes them in a book called “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” which shows that we plotted to bring on the late World War. You believe that book: All right. For the sake of argument we will underwrite every word of it. It is genuine and authentic. But what is that beside the unquestionable historical conspiracy which we have carried out, which we have never denied because you never had the courage to charge us with it, and of which the full record is extant for anybody to read?

    ——————————————————————————–

    If you really are serious when you talk of Jewish plots, may I not direct your attention to one worth talking about? What use is it wasting words on the alleged control of your public opinion by Jewish financiers, newspaper owners and movie magnates, when you might as well justly accuse us of the proved control of your whole civilization by the Jewish Gospels?

    You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are disturbers. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom not merely of the latest great war but of nearly all your wars, not only of the Russian but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it.

    Look back a little and see what has happened. Nineteen hundred years ago you were an innocent, carefree, pagan race. You worshipped countless gods and goddesses, the spirits of the air, of the running streams and of the woodland. You took unblushing pride in the glory of your naked bodies. You carved images of your gods and of the tantalizing human figure. You delighted in the combats of the field, the arena and the battle-ground. War and slavery were fixed institutions in your systems. Disporting yourselves on the hillsides and in the valleys of the great outdoors, you took to speculating on the wonder and mystery of life and laid the foundations of natural science and philosophy. Yours was a noble, sensual culture, unirked by the prickings of a social conscience or by any sentimental questionings about human equality. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone.

    But we did not leave you alone. We took you in hand and pulled down the beautiful and generous structure you had reared, and changed the whole course of your history. We conquered you as no empire of yours ever subjugated Africa or Asia. And we did it all without armies, without bullets, without blood or turmoil, without force of any kind. We did it solely by the irresistible might of our spirit, with ideas, with propaganda.

    We made you the willing and unconscious bearers of our mission to the whole world, to the barbarous races of the earth, to the countless unborn generations. Without fully understanding what we were doing to you, you became the agents at large of our racial tradition, carrying our gospel to the unexplored ends of the earth.

    Our tribal customs have become the core of your moral code. Our tribal laws have furnished the basic groundwork of all your august constitutions and legal systems. Our legends and our folk-tales are the sacred lore which you croon to your infants. Our poets have filled your hymnals and your prayer-books. Our national history has become an indispensable part of the learning of your pastors and priests and scholars. Our kings, our statesmen, our prophets, our warriors are your heroes. Our ancient little country is your Holy Land. Our national literature is your Holy Bible. What our people thought and taught has become inextricably woven into your very speech and tradition, until no one among you can be called educated who is not familiar with our racial heritage.

    Jewish artisans and Jewish fishermen are your teachers and your saints, with countless statues carved in their image and innumerable cathedrals raised to their memories. A Jewish maiden is your ideal of motherhood and womanhood. A Jewish rebel-prophet is the central figure in your religious worship. We have pulled down your idols, cast aside your racial inheritance, and substituted for them our God and our traditions. No conquest in history can even remotely compare with this clean sweep of our conquest over you.

    How did we do it? Almost by accident. Two thousand years ago nearly, in far-off Palestine, our religion had fallen into decay and materialism. Money-changers were in possession of the temple. Degenerate, selfish priests mulcted our people and grew fat. Then a young patriot-idealist arose and went about the land calling for a revival of faith. He had no thought of setting up a new church. Like all the prophets before him, his only aim was to purify and revitalize the old creed. He attacked the priests and drove the money-changers from the temple. This brought him into conflict with the established order and its supporting pillars. The Roman authorities, who were in occupation of the country, fearing his revolutionary agitation as a political effort to oust them, arrested him, tried him and condemned him to death by crucifixion, a common form of execution at that time.

    The followers of Jesus of Nazareth, mainly slaves and poor workmen, in their bereavement and disappointment, turned away from the world and formed themselves into a brotherhood of pacifist non-resisters, sharing the memory of their crucified leader and living together communistically. They were merely a new sect in Judea, without power or consequence, neither the first nor the last.

    Only after the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans did the new creed come into prominence. Then a patriotic Jew named Paul or Saul conceived the idea of humbling the Roman power by destroying the morale of its soldiery with the doctrines of love and non-resistance preached by the little sect of Jewish Christians. He became the Apostle to the Gentiles, he who hitherto had been one of the most active persecutors of the band. And so well did Paul do his work that within four centuries the great empire which had subjugated Palestine along with half of the world, was a heap of ruins. And the law which went forth from Zion became the official religion of Rome.

    This was the beginning of our dominance in your world. But it was only a beginning. From this time forth your history is little more than a struggle for mastery between your own old pagan spirit and our Jewish spirit. Half your wars, great and little, are religious wars, fought over the interpretation of one thing or another in our teachings. You no sooner broke free from your primitive religious simplicity and attempted the practice of the pagan Roman learning than Luther armed with our gospels arose to down you and re-enthrone our heritage. Take the three principal revolutions in modern times—the French, the American and the Russian. What are they but the triumph of the Jewish idea of social, political and economic justice?

    ——————————————————————————–

    And the end is still a long way off. We still dominate you. At this very moment your churches are torn asunder by a civil war between Fundamentalists and Modernists, that is to say between those who cling to our teachings and traditions literally and those who are striving by slow steps to dispossess us. In Dayton, Tennessee, a Bible-bred community forbids the teaching of your science because it conflicts with our ancient Jewish account of the origin of life; and Mr. Bryan, the leader of the anti-Jewish Ku Klux Klan in the Democratic National Convention, makes the supreme fight of his life in our behalf, without noticing the contradiction. Again and again the Puritan heritage of Judea breaks out in waves of stage censorship, Sunday blue laws and national prohibition acts. And while these things are happening you twaddle about Jewish influence in the movies!

    Is it any wonder you resent us? We have put a clog upon your progress. We have imposed upon you an alien book and an alien faith which you cannot swallow or digest, which is at cross-purposes with your native spirit, which keeps you ever-lastingly ill-at-ease, and which you lack the spirit either to reject or to accept in full.

    In full, of course, you never have accepted our Christian teachings. In your hearts you still are pagans. You still love war and graven images and strife. You still take pride in the glory of the nude human figure. Your social conscience, in spite of all democracy and all your social revolutions, is still a pitifully imperfect thing. We have merely divided your soul, confused your impulses, paralyzed your desires. In the midst of battle you are obliged to kneel down to him who commanded you to turn the other cheek, who said “Resist not evil” and “Blessed are the peace-makers.” In your lust for gain you are suddenly disturbed by a memory from your Sunday-school days about taking no thought for the morrow. In your industrial struggles, when you would smash a strike without compunction, you are suddenly reminded that the poor are blessed and that men are brothers in the Fatherhood of the Lord. And as you are about to yield to temptation, your Jewish training puts a deterrent hand on your shoulder and dashes the brimming cup from your lips. You Christians have never become Christianized. To that extent we have failed with you. But we have forever spoiled the fun of paganism for you.

    So why should you not resent us? If we were in your place we should probably dislike you more cordially than you do us. But we should make no bones about telling you why. We should not resort to subterfuges and transparent pretexts. With millions of painfully respectable Jewish shopkeepers all about us we should not insult your intelligence and our own honesty by talking about communism as a Jewish philosophy. And with millions of hard-working impecunious Jewish peddlers and laborers we should not make ourselves ridiculous by talking about international capitalism as a Jewish monopoly. No, we should go straight to the point. We should contemplate this confused, ineffectual muddle which we call civilization, this half-Christian half-pagan medley, and—were our places reversed—we should say to you point-blank: “For this mess thanks to you, to your prophets and to your Bible.”

    Yours,
    M. E. R.

    Matthias, that was quite a brilliant little essay, very cleansing mentally and even spiritually. So often I’ve wondered about most, not all of the things you wrote. I have dealt with and befriended, a Jewish electrician, shoe store salesman, and my own high school mathematics teacher who loved Bill Haley and the Comets. One of my favorite popular science writers as a young boy and even later in life was Issac Asimov, who upon being asked about his being held back because of being Jewish, said, ” no one has ever held me back”. He disagreed with other Jews on being somehow limited in advancing in life. The shoestore salesman, Saul, was a man in his eightees, who still climbed up a very long ladder to retrieve whatever boots my mother needed for her job in meetpacking. How can you feel ill will towards people like this? All I’m saying is, these are some of the experiences in life, that cannot be reconciled easily with other experiences involving, if you will, the same group of people. The point of Matthias’ little essay did not escape me. In its widest meaning, it asks, “just what do you believe about yourself and life in general, and are you honoring those beliefs or are you just a living a life guided by total confusion.

    My apologies. The above essay, “A Real Case Against the Jews” was written in 1920, I believe, by Marcus Eli Ravage for The New Century Magazine. A great comment nonetheless Bobby, glad you enjoyed it. It elucidates the sublime depths of the monumental problems we face and the Herculean task of solving them if we are to survive as a people, a nation, at all. You may enjoy M. E. R. ‘s second essay on this topic. “Commissary to the Gentiles”, as well. Sorry once again for not being clearer on the authorship of the piece.

    Kindest Regards,
    Matthias

    Thanks Matthias. I will read it. I believe in the advice that the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, gave–”it takes all of our knowledge to approach the truth”.
