CONCLUSION

An important mechanism underlying all this is that of rallying around the flag during times of crisis, a phenomenon that is well understood by social psychologists. Group identification processes are exaggerated in times of resource competition or other perceived sources of threat,131 a finding that is highly compatible with an evolutionary perspective.132 External threat tends to reduce internal divisions and maximize perceptions of common interest among ingroup members, as we have seen among American Jews in response to perceived crises in Israel, ranging from the Six-Day War of 1967 to the unending crises of the 1990s and into the new millennium.133 Jewish populations also respond to threat by developing messianic ideologies, rallying around charismatic leaders, and expelling dissenters from the community. Traditionally this has taken the form of religious fundamentalism, as among the Hasidim, but in the modern world these tendencies have been manifested in various forms of leftist radicalism, Zionism, and other Jewish intellectual and political movements.134 Throughout Jewish history, this siege mentality has tended to increase conflict between Jews and non-Jews which then has a feed-forward effect of increasing the perception of threat among Jews. In the context of the intense ethnic conflict of nineteenth-century Eastern Europe, the conflict was exacerbated by an enormous increase in the Jewish population and the resulting poverty.

And in all cases, the leaders of this process are the more ethnocentric, committed Jews. They are the ones who donate to Jewish causes, attend rallies, write letters, join and support activist organizations. As J. J. Goldberg, the editor of the Forward, notes, Jews who identify themselves as doves feel much less strongly about Israel than those who identify themselves as hawks. “Jewish liberals give to the Sierra Fund. Jewish conservatives are Jewish all the time. That’s the whole ball game. It’s not what six million American Jews feel is best — it’s what 50 Jewish organizations feel is best.”135 In other words, it’s the most radical, committed elements of the Jewish community that determine the direction of the entire community.

As a European in a society that is rapidly becoming non-European, I can sympathize with Jabotinsky’s envy of the native Slavic peoples he observed in the early twentieth century:

I look at them with envy. I have never known, and probably never will know, this completely organic feeling: so united and singular [is this] sense of a homeland, in which everything flows together, the past and the present, the legend and the hopes, the individual and the historical. Every nation civilised or primitive, sees its land as its national home, where it wants to stay as the sole landlord forever. Such a nation will never willingly consent to new landlords or even to partnership.137

It is the memory of this rapidly disappearing sense of historical rootedness and sense of impending dispossession that are at the root of the malaise experienced by many Europeans, not only in the U.S. but elsewhere. The triumph of Zionism took a mere fifty years from Herzl’s inspiration to the founding of the state of Israel. There is a tendency to overlook or ignore the powerful ethnocentrism at the heart of Zionism that motivated people like Jabotinsky, especially on the part of the American Jewish community, which has been dedicated throughout the twentieth century to pathologizing and criminalizing the fragile vestiges of ethnocentrism among Europeans.138

But the bottom line is that the Zionists were successful. Israel would not have become a state without a great many deeply ethnocentric Jews willing to engage in any means necessary to bring about their dream: a state that would be a vehicle for their ethnic interests. It would not have come about without the most radical among them—people like Jabotinsky, Begin, Shamir, Sharon, and their supporters—a group which now includes the entire organized American Jewish community. The impending dispossession of Europeans will only be avoided if people of their ilk can be found among the political class of Europeans.

    Yet again, Mr. MacDonald has given us “the lay of the land.” It’s up to each of us to change that land. I believe a first step is to respect our genetics.

    “External threat…tends to maximize perceptions of common interest.”

    I have tried to confirm this by noting the post-WW2 sensitivity of Jews in general because of their Nazi experience. It now extends to the “Arab threat”. These attitudes, justified or not, have created organized responses that can adversely impact on white nationalism, but need to be confronted with comparable sensibility, intelligence and knowledge.

    Dr. MacDonald, allow me to refer back to your Part 2: Hasidic Origins.
    On Dec. 26, the http://www.newyorklawjournal.com/ , published an AP article on the first ever woman Hasidic Judge Ms. Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, [ MOTHER OF SIX, GRANDMOTHER AND FEMINIST; cited elsewhere ! ] to be elected in the US, to The Supreme Court of New York; Civil Court Division, serving Borough Park and its Districts.
    Given the sidewalk signs in that Hasidic part of Brooklyn, ordering women to make way for men and to step aside, in addition to their well-known general subordination to men, among their purportedly equality-seeking larger group, I was astonished but not surprised.
    Most of the Judaic sects in the US already have their segregated, parallel Rabbinical Courts, with broad internal jurisdiction, including that over child molestation, which properly belongs in the regular criminal system: however that would negate their protectionism for child-molesting rabbis,
    [NYC; Auckland; Sidney etc. ] taking out of their time to exclusively charge Catholic Priests as the only offenders.
    At the bottom of said NYLJ was a single comment. It stated, that Freier had been helped into her job by her uncle
    [ Judge of the Supreme Court of New York; Appellate Division ] David Schmidt.
    On Dec. 12, 2014, the NEW YORK POST, under Metro, featured the following article: ” Dirty judge tormented me with sex tales: Secretary “. It then features a photo of His Honor, strongly suggesting, that he is a twin of Mephisto, and then continues:
    A RANDY BROOKLYN JUDGE TURNED THE HALLOWED HALLS OF JUSTICE INTO A SLEAZY PIT – SEXUALLY HARRASSING HIS ORTHODOX SECRETARY WITH LURID TALES ABOUT HIS EROTIC ADVENTURES WITH A MISTRESS, PROUDLY STRIDING SHIRTLESS AROUND HIS CHAMBERS, AND FORCING HER TO PICK UP HIS SOILED UNDERWEAR, A NEW LAW SUIT CHARGES.
    ” WHEN I HAVE SEX WITH MY WIFE, I THINK OF HER,” [HIS MISTRESS] SCHMIDT SAID, ADDING THAT HE BUYS HIS FLING UNDERWEAR FROM VICTORIA’S SECRET AND THAT THEY HAVE DAILY PHONE SEX….THE MODEST SABBAGH, A COURT SECRETARY FOR 24 YEARS, SAYS THE JUDGE CANNED HER IN JANUARY- THE DAY AFTER SHE COMPLAINED ABOUT HIS BEHAVIOR TO ADMINISTRATORS.
    The luck of the Irish: the secretary, Sabbagh, the mother of five, died after a kidney transplant.
    Unrelated, Schmidt’s alma mater, Brooklyn College is defending a class action suit for fraud and corruption.
    Unquestionably accomplished in her segregated community, Judge Freier will hopefully not have to sit in judgment over lower life-forms, such as ourselves. With her deep-seated belief, how could she exclude, even sub-consciously, invoking that anti-all-others Sanhedrin and OT garbage in her decisions.
    Her investiture was finalized with ” God Bless America “. HE will be forced to put in even more overtime in the interest of this Nation.
    Is there even one group characteristic attribute you described to us, missing ?

    The above link to the New York Law Journal has become a tad problematic. Best google:
    First Hasidic woman sworn in as judge in New York
    A veritable embarrassment of riches.
    The NYLJ commenter stated, that Schmidt retired, without indicating whether he retired – or was retired [ fired for cause ].

    Oh Pioneers! by Willa Cather comes closer to the “organic feeling’ Dr. Macdonald references than any love of the desert by Brooklyn and Yonkers transplants.

    But how do you expect Europeans especially in the West to be as ethnocentric as Jews when we have been compelled to accept “white guilt” narrative in a parallel universe where all the bad guys are blonde blue-eyed devils who colonized and enslave the rest of the world?

    It is this nonsense Jewish construct that must be done away with for Europeans to survive as well the notion of Jews being beyond any type of crtitique due to the so-called H-word.

    I infact posted a comment on the U.S. Jewish-controlled Senate its swift reaction to the recent UN Resolution but it was not posted. I don’t recall breaking any rules besides mentioning Steven Spielberg’s film on Mossad targeted killings of opponents of Israel and the possible ethnic identity of the Democratic Senate members.

    In 1806 Napoleon emancipated the jews with the belief that they would assimilate. Instead of assimilating they conquered France. What threat to the jews was France? The Dreyfus affair was simply the French people’s chaffing under the jewish yoke and it was quickly put down.

    I fully agree that men and woman of almost blinding dedication are needed in any counter establishment movement.

    I wonder if such men were found if they could arouse much sympathy with the masses of whites so long as their ideas were considered as beyond the pale and radioactive. Such would not be the case if whites were conditioned to find them agreeable. Who would condition them ? Those in positions of power in the “OMIS” (the opinion molding institutions of society: academia, news, entertainment, and to some degree the judiciary). Unfortunately those positions are largely in Jewish hands. And to wrest power from them requires the mobilization of whites, which mobilization is effected by the use of the “OMIS”.

    Nevertheless, TOO’s message may be spreading via the internet and social media. The recent presidential election has revealed a mainstream media so baldy partisan its creditability is badly damaged. People are looking for a new paradigm; and one that comports with their interests. Trump’s election seemed to be a long shot too.

    “In other words, it’s the most radical, committed elements of the Jewish community that determine the direction of the entire community.”
    The same phenomenon applies to Western society in general. The left are more committed to their politics and so are able to determine the direction the West is taking – ie to the left. Those who are not on the left tend to not be political on the whole, so do not seem to notice what the left are doing.

    “Group identification processes are exaggerated in times of resource competition or other perceived sources of threat”
    At present the threat level to the West in the minds of the young people of the west is very very low. They seem on the whole to be quite happy for the left to rule them. They have no idea of the country that the left is planning for them – to be like Mexico or Africa.

    When circumstances change and the young are no longer rich and pampered – overfed even – , they will think differently, and this change of thinking can be very rapid when the environment in which they live changes. Then they might start having political thoughts that arise from their animal behavior programming (as perceived sources of threat increase) rather than as now just accepting the political thoughts that the prevailing left-wing culture provides for them to absorb without thinking.

    The root cause of ‘Zionist Extremism’ is Utopianism, the attribution of reality to phenomena of ‘mirage’, ‘Fata Morgana’, which affects strongly wandering uprooted populations (in search also of an identity), as the Jews were. The ‘Promised Land’ beyond the horizon, never fully grasped. The false identities they try to create for themselves (one should not forget that the “Jews” of Judaea were in fact Edomites forcibly converted by the Hasmoneans, or the Khazars, for that matter).
