Reflections on Some Aspects of Jewish Self-Deception: Part 1. Introduction

‘Reality denied comes back to haunt.’ Philip K. Dick, Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said Introduction A persistent theme at TOO, and in the works of anyone objectively dealing with Jewish historiography, culture and politics, is that of self-deception. A couple of hours spent reviewing the TOO archive reveals more than thirty articles which deal […]

The Pathetic Apologetics of Caroline Glick

Editor’s note: As someone who has  written chapters on Jewish apologia and  self-deception, I have to say that Caroline Glick may be the most extreme case I have ever encountered.

And so we find ourselves finding truth behind another ‘canard’ […]

Justice Denied: Thoughts on Truth, ‘Canards’ and the Marc Rich Case: Part One of Two

‘When someone does you wrong, do not judge things as he interprets them or would like you to interpret them. Just see them as they are, in plain truth.’ Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book Four: Verse Eleven. In my humble opinion, one of the most intriguing features of the posturing of the Anti-Defamation League, and […]
