It is almost superfluous to add that there has never been a Palestinian state or a sovereign Palestinian entity of any kind.

The words of Jewish extremists and terrorists who cry for “peace” while making abhorrent, discriminatory and false remarks to justify their NaZionist agenda. The article was posted on “Jew” World News and by a writer identified only as “ a former Israeli ambassador to the United State.”

What does one expect from a NaZionist?

Let me first define NaZionist for the average reader. You surely have noticed that it is a combination of Nazi and Zionist and thus NaZionist.

Nazis advocated the extermination of Jews in Europe as generally accepted by the masses and those who wrote history. Zionists advocated the same: the extermination of Palestinians from their lands of thousands of years, claiming that God, the Creator had promised it to Abraham and therefore it must belong only to Jews!

Mind you, Abraham never even heard of Judaism. And according to the Islamic faith, it is Abraham who named those who followed God’s words as Muslims! He and his son Isma’eel, built the Ka’aba in Mecca, the place millions of Muslims seek for the annual pilgrimage and honor the famous incident in which Abraham almost sacrificed his son, Isma’eel (then 16 years old) as commanded by God Himself – as a test of Abraham’s resolve and faith.

Judaism then, never existed until after the death of Moses.

The descendants of Abraham (Jacob’s – Israe’eel – sons) and the 12-tribes, were the 12 tribes of “Bani-Isra’eel” (the children of Isra’eel – or Jacob) who like Abraham, never new what the word Jew meant since it never existed… Bani-Israe’eel are also referred to Israelites and the country was named Israel to create the argument that Israel and the Israelites were one and the same!  Clever! I mean, amazing Jewish deception!!!

Now then, with this simple introduction, a person of average intelligence will deduce that Zionism came to the world, brainwashing the masses into believing that the Israelites were the early Jews of today’s Israel…

 

Yet and amazingly,  a Jewish Israeli Professor, Dr. Shlomo Sand, was the one who published a book about the Invention of the Jewish People! Dr Sand argues that the idea of a Jewish nation – whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel – is a myth invented little more than a century ago. Read more here.

But NaZionists strategies continued with their brainwashing techniques and reversed the words to state that it was the Palestinians who were invented.

Desperate acts.. using religion – as violent as it was and continues to be – to justify massacring and exterminating Palestinians.

The “former ambassador” also tries to use ignorant and absurd logic to convince us that Arabs never identified themselves as Palestinians yet Jews did define themselves as Jews – in the Holy Land. Hold on to your horses here, Mr. ignorant former Israeli ambassador…

  1. A Jew is one who follows Judaism; a religion.
  2. A Palestinian is one who identifies himself  by the land he inhabits. Palestinians did refer to themselves by their faiths: Christian and Muslim.
  3. Likewise, Lebanese, Jordanians, Saudis, etc… must also be “invented” since they never referred to themselves by the land in which they resided.
  4. Then the demise of the Ottoman empire and the “christian invaders, if you will” divided and conquered the Middle East and North Africa into the countries we know today: then “educated” each division that their “citizenship” is now “Jordanian, Lebanese, Syrian and so on..”
  5. Then we have Americans… the invented people of the West. Americans should be recognized then as Colonists and only native Americans should be honored and called Americans. But that’s another story… and this is exactly what NaZionism is trying to achieve… an America-like scenario where Palestinians will only exist in “reservations” while European and American Jews who will emigrate to the Holy Land will eventually be referred to as Israelis.

Dream on… 

The Jewish faith predicts the demise of this heathen violent country of blasphemous inhabitants (Israeli NaZionists) and every year we hear a new interpretation of the demise of Israel by a Rabbi – and the year in which it is supposed to happen – per Talmudic teachings and the Rabbis who interpret the “scriptures…”

We know one fact for sure: Palestine will be freed. The second coming of Jesus peace be upon him will establish justice in the land after he, Jesus, kills the anti-Christ (I suspect he would be a Jew) and his followers, then it’s a matter of time – no prophecy had exactly pinpointed this – before the final day and The Day of Judgement!
 

“I know Israel mistreats the Palestinians and stole their land. I know Israel spies on America and sells top secret info to Russia and key business plans to China. I know Israel has hundreds of illegal nuclear missiles but I don’t care because the Jews are God’s chosen people. I know this because the Jews wrote a book that says so.”

The other day I read an email from Rev. Ted Pike linking to an interesting audio titled Can Christians Defend Old Testament Killing of Canaanites? His speech is symptomatic for the cognitive dissonance many Christians are experiencing when confronted with the antics of the Jewish God. I still remember vividly my disgust listening to the story of the slaughter of an army of 200,000 Hethitians by the archangel Gabriel who came to aid of the ‘Chosen People’.

Whenever I think about these things, I am reminded of Jesus’ famous words in Matthew 7:20, “By their fruits ye shall know them.” Forget about their twisted arguments and self-serving claims of ‘higher orders’. Just look at their actions. Are they good or are they evil? Do they treat others the way they would like to be treated if they were in the other person’s shoes?

There can be no doubt that throughout history the God of the ‘Chosen People’ has made them commit the most horrific crimes.

There can be no doubt that throughout history the God of the ‘Chosen People’ has made them commit the most horrific crimes. From the ritual killing of the first born child to countless genocides. I don’t care what kind of excuses they concoct to justify the unjustifiable. If there is any higher authority telling them to do these horrid things, it’s certainly not the loving and forgiving father figure Jesus told us about.

The reason why the Pharisees hated Jesus so much, and got him killed, was that he told them right into their face that they were utterly evil. “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” – Matt 23:33. And in John 8:44, Jesus is quoted as calling the Pharisees “children of the devil”.

Some people blame the perversions of Babylon. The ‘oral tradition’[1] – they say – have hijacked Judaism and secretly replaced God with Satan. My view is that Judaism has always been utterly evil. Either the God of the Jews is suffering under multiple personality disorder, or Jewish priests have never preached anything but Satanism in disguise.

By their fruits ye shall know them. Their fruits are telling me that the Jews are – and always have been – Satan’s Chosen People.

Footnote:
[1] After the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple by the Romans, the ‘oral traditions’ Jesus rallied against were codified as the Babylonian Talmud and are widely considered to be the highest religious authority in Judaism.

I find it interesting that some bloggers here assume that people are as ignorant as they are. Or maybe by making certain statements (look it up yourself…) they assume that people will just take their word for it.

An uneducated (as in ignorant) blogger wrote this about the situation in the Middle East – and particularly, Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood:

If you are not familiar with these gangsters of islam then you should spend some time doing a bit of research about them.  It isn’t hard to find all sorts of information about them on the internet, they’re a highly visible group.  They are a well organized, determined and frightening bunch intent on overthrowing western-minded civilizations and instituting rigid compliance with sharia law.

Interesting and false claim. Here’s what my own research about the Muslim Brotherhood revealed:

Wikipedia:

It was founded in 1928 in Egypt by the Islamic scholar and schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna. The Brotherhood’s stated goal is to instill the Qur’an and Sunnah as the “sole reference point for … ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community … and state”.[4] Since its inception in 1928 the movement has officially opposed violent means to achieve its goals.

Wikipedia also states that the Council on Foreign Relations says: “At various times in its history, the group has used or supported violence and has been repeatedly banned in Egypt for attempting to overthrow Cairo’s secular government. Since the 1970s, however, the Egyptian Brotherhood has disavowed violence and sought to participate in Egyptian politics.”

Interestingly, Wikipedia does not provide a link to the Council on Foreign Relations ( an impressive name and one that projects authority), regardless of their biased and incorrect anti-Islamic statements. If a couple of “personalities” are among its members, then we consider it a credible source? Further research reveals who they are. For now, let’s stay on the topic of the Brotherhood.

You can read more details about the Brotherhood on Wikipedia and the link is provided; unlike the moron who wrote the hate-statement in which he’s really trying to undermine a religion, based on his own anti-Semitic views and without any reference.

What is really intriguing on Wikipedia, is the fact that Osama Bin Laden had criticized the group!

The Mubarak oppressive and tyrant regime was behind the Brotherhood being accused of terrorism. It was a classic “Divide and Conquer” principle in which Mubarak’s regime ensured its grip remained supported and financed by the West.

Jewish Virtual Library

From the name, one can be certain that this militant Jewish view will have nothing positive to say about another religion, especially Islam. They write (about the Brotherhood):

The organization’s motto is as follows: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

An important aspect of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology is the sanctioning of jihad such as the 2004 fatwa issued by Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi making it a religious obligation of Muslims to abduct and kill U.S. citizens in Iraq.

I must say that these are impressive and strong accusations. I searched English and Arabic sites in which any of the above would appear as a direct quote to Qaradawi, or, at least something similar, and I failed to find one such statement. If you, the reader can, I welcome any reference and we’ll jointly evaluate and debate. When a group or a government wants to discredit someone or another country or group, it will make such statements as if they were facts without any reference, credible or otherwise!

The above image was found on an Arabic Blog. It reads:  Allah is our [ultimate] objective. The Prophet is our Example. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration.”

Jihad of course is the word Zionists and Neocons cleverly use to “prove” that Islam is all about war an/or killing; an utterly hateful and false claim. The Arabic word (Jihad) means struggle; not war. However, when it was used as struggle against the pagans of Mecca during the days of the Prophet, then of course it meant war!  That was when Muslims had to defended themselves against the pagans of Arabia.

The “Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration/ hope” does not – promote war. During the time of the Prophet and in Muslims defending themselves against the pagans, the Quran comforted those new Muslims that their reward is highest than anyone elses if they were killed defending themselves against the pagans. This reward is an immediate entry to Paradise, according to Islamic belief, and living eternity directly below the Throne of God Almighty. In other words, the ceiling of one’s abode, is the Throne of Almighty!  Today it still means the same thing: that if one were to die defending his family, his honor or his country, the reward would be the same. The Quran clearly states that:

2:190 Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.
60:8 Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

On Wikipedia, it is stated that the Brotherhood preaches that Islam enjoins man to strive for social justice, the eradication of poverty and corruption, and political freedom to the extent allowed by the laws of Islam. The Brotherhood strongly opposes Western colonialism, and helped overthrow the pro-western monarchies in Egypt and other Muslim countries during the early 20th century.

Sounds like what we stand for in the U.S., does it not? We value freedom and don’t like colonialism, unless it is us doing it!

Sharia Law

Again, this blogger antisemitic and hate to Muslims and Islam is quite apparent in and from posting the famous photo-shopped picture of  a woman who was supposedly stoned to death. If you examine the picture casually, you will notice that the woman’s image is inserted in what seems to be a “hole” with rocks all around her and red marks on her face. Yet, there’s no spilled blood, no torn dress, dust or dirt on her “very black” garments. Little details the “creator” of the photo neglected to add.

I am yet to post something about the so-called Sahria “Law”  and prove that what most politicians and the media’s views are influenced by pro-Zionist terrorism to discredit Islam and Muslims in America. Period.

There is not even a single verse in the Quran that calls for stoning anyone!  Nor does the so-called Sharia “Law” support the stoning and/or killing as claimed. But if Iranians and/or Shiites do this, Islam and Muslims have nothing to do with this.

Does anyone accuse Christianity of being a racist and violent religion based on the KKK and its white-supremacist beliefs? Does one accuse Judaism in general to be an evil religion even when the Talmud contains violent and despicable teachings – from sex with infants to the permissibility of killing any non Jew?

Examples:

MISHNAH.WHEN A GROWN-UP MAN (7) HAS HAD SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH (8) A LITTLE GIRL, (9) OR WHEN A SMALL BOY (10) HAS INTERCOURSE WITH A GROWN-UP WOMAN, OR [WHEN A GIRL WAS ACCIDENTALLY] INJURED BY A PIECE OF WOOD (11) — [IN ALL THESE CASES] THEIR KETHUBAH IS TWO HUNDRED [ZUZ] … — Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Kethuboth 11a
Soncino 1961 Edition, page 57

Stoning in the Bible

1 Samuel 30.6: David was in great danger; for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in spirit for their sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

Acts of the Apostles 7.59: While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’

2 Corinthians:  Five times I have received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I received a stoning.

More from the Bible:

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives. (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)

But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

 

The flavor of the day is anti Islam and Muslims. The morons of the day do not realize and understand that this is parallel to, and downright antisemitism.  Yet most have been “trained” to associate antisemitism with Jews only.

One only needs to read, research and explore… the truth is right at one’s fingertips.

Al Azhar Statement on the recent speech وَقَدْ خَابَ مَنِ افْتَرَى

[20:61 Moses said to him: Woe to you! Forge not ye a lie against Allah, lest He destroy you (at once) utterly by chastisement: the forger must suffer frustration!” ]

Such does God Almighty decrees, and the rule in the Holy verses,  disappointment is the ultimate disgrace for each forger, disappointment in his resolutions, and disappointment in his own words, and frustration in every relationship, and disappointment in everything and in all situations, and frustration in the hearts of people, and disappointment in his home and his family!

And disappointment in all things in life, and then the greatest disappointment when he faces God’s promise:

(36:65 That Day shall We set a seal on their mouths. But their hands will speak to us, and their feet bear witness, to all that they did).
The Azhar scholars issued their statement in Arabic on the 25th of Safar, 1432, corresponding to 29 of January 2011.

They called Mubarak a liar, cheater, traitor and a forger. They warned him from a worse day he will face when he faces God and then the biggest disappointment of all: his hands and feet will bear witness against his evil deeds while his mouth will be sealed shut. God will not allow this Hitler to utter a word – lie, again! Period.

They have requested the legal system to place Mubarak under house arrest – in preparation for justice to take its course on this Pharaoh.

..of Arabia!

Are we on the threshold of an historic and explosive change? I never thought this day would come but here it is, happening before our very own eyes.

I see a new world and country emerging: The United States of Arabia!

Far fetched? I don’t think so. History repeats itself and we will, God Willing see a Democratic, Just and Economically sound United States of Arabia.

The New USA is being created as the Arab world finally explodes against corruption, tyranny and Pharaoh-like Dictators who defied the Creator Himself.


Today the Arab world is erupting!

“Enough,” said the people!

Mubarak, Gaddafi, Abdullah, Assad and the rest of you puppets.. pack your bags and disappear before you are arrested and hanged in front of the masses you have oppressed and humiliated long enough!

Meanwhile, Aljazeera reports:

US urges Egyptian government not to prevent peaceful protests or block social networking sites…

Just days ago the US considered Tunisia and the Egyptian governments “allies!”

Ripple protests could topple U.S. allies – CNN

Tunisia has brought a blast of reality to Mideast politics. Aging autocrats have been put on notice they can no longer count on docile citizens.

But is an era of unrest approaching? Will the winds of change sweep east along the Maghreb and bring down regimes from North Africa to the Levant and even the Arabian Peninsula?

Beyond doubt, those winds are blowing. Across the region they are being driven by the same social and economic factors, including high unemployment, a booming birth rate, and exploding food prices.

More than 500 demonstrators have been arrested as thousands return to streets in Egypt to protest over poverty and political repression.

A New Map is in the making!

What a beautiful year 2011 is turning out to be!

Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips stated this week that Keith Ellison should be voted out of Congress because, among other reasons, he is a Muslim. (He also stated, erroneously, that Ellison was the only Muslim member of Congress.) But now, according to Salon, he’s put up a new post “clarifying” his views.

The erroneous assumptions he makes while “clarifying” are that (a) Islam decrees that people should be killed if they disagree with Muslims, (b) that Islam supports the imposition of a theocracy, and (c) that Islam urges killing Jews and infidels.

I think there’s some projection going on here. “Infidel” was the word that Christian Crusaders used for Muslims, not vice verse. Muslims traditionally have not referred to Christians and Jews as “infidels.” In 1099, Christian Crusaders attacked Jerusalem and killed thousands of “infidels” — i.e., Jewish and Muslim men, women, and children.

Who’s Afraid of Shariah?

by Sumbul Ali-Karamali.

Hasn’t the whole notion of shariah in America gotten a bit out of control? No, it hasn’t — it’s gotten hugely, obscenely, ignorantly out of control. How many of those anti-Islam protesters holding “NO SHARIA LAW” signs (as if anyone were advocating shariah law in the U.S.) actually know what the word means? I’d say, oh, none. Roughly.

Shariah (also spelled shari’ah or sharia or shari’a) is the Arabic word for “the road to the watering place.” In a religious context, it means “the righteous path.” Loosely, it can mean simply, “Islam.”

There are six principles of shariah. They are derived from the Qur’an, which Muslims believe is the word of God. All Islamic religious rules must be in line with these six principles of shariah.

Aha! The six principles must be about killing infidels, veiling women, stoning people for adultery, honor killings and female genital cutting, right? Nope.

Here they are, the six principles of shariah:

  1. The right to the protection of life.
  2. The right to the protection of family.
  3. The right to the protection of education.
  4. The right to the protection of religion.
  5. The right to the protection of property (access to resources).
  6. The right to the protection of human dignity.


Well, bless me, as a pledge-of-allegiance-reciting, California-raised Muslim girl; these six principles sound a lot like those espoused in my very own Constitution of the United States. Except that these were developed over a thousand years ago.

This is the core of shariah — these six principles. The term “shariah law” is a misnomer, because shariah is not law, but a set of principles. To Muslims, it’s the general term for “the way of God.”

But how do we know what the way of God is? Early Muslims looked to the Qur’an and the words of the Prophet Muhammad to figure this out. They filled books of interpretive writings (called fiqh) about how to act in accordance with the way of God. They rarely agreed — the fiqh is not just one rule, but many differing opinions and contradictory rules and scholarly debates.

Sometimes, shariah also refers to the whole body of Islamic texts, which includes the Qur’an, the sayings of the Prophet, and the books of interpretive literature written by medieval Muslim scholars. The first two are considered divine. The interpretive literature, thefiqh, is not.


The fiqh was meant to develop and change according to the time and place — it has internal methodologies for that to happen. It is not static, but flexible. No religion gets to be 1400 years old and the second largest in the world unless it’s flexible and adaptable.
The Qur’an is old. The fiqh books of jurisprudence are old. To modern eyes, they can look just as outdated as other ancient texts, including the Bible and Torah. That’s why, just like the Bible and the Torah, the Islamic texts must be read in their historical context.
Assuming all Muslims follow medieval Islamic rules today is like assuming that all Catholics follow 9th century canon law. Islam, like Christianity, has changed many times over the centuries, and it continues to change. Focusing only on the nutcases who advocate a return to medieval times is ignoring the vast majority of modern Muslims.

For example, stoning for adultery is a punishment that appears in fiqh, as well as early Judaic law. But it does not appear in the Qur’an. In Islam, therefore, stoning was a result of cultural norms imposed on the religious texts. Moreover, in the fiqh, though the punishment for adultery was stoning, adultery was made such a fantastically difficult crime to prove that the punishment was impossible to apply. Historically, stoning was very rarely implemented in the Islamic world, which is ironic, since today the Saudi and Iranian governments apply it as though they’d never heard of the strict Islamic constraints on it.

The vast majority of Muslims today do not believe in stoning people for adultery, and many are working hard to eradicate it. Stoning is horrific and has no place in our world. The miniscule percentage of Muslims who advocate it are imposing the medieval penalty while ignoring all the myriad limitations meant to make it inapplicable.

As for other scary stories attributed to shari’a, like honor killings, veiling of women, and female genital cutting, these are [primitive] cultural practices and not Islamic. They are practiced by non-Muslims of certain cultures as well as Muslims.

Shari’a is a set of religious principles and is not the law of the land anywhere in the world. The 50-some Muslim-majority countries are all constitutional states and nearly all of them have civil codes (many of these based on the French system). Being Muslim does not require a governmental imposition of something called “shari’a law,” any more than being a Christian requires the implementation of “Biblical law” (though there are, of course, a tiny minority of both Christians and Muslims who do advocate such things, including Sarah Palin).

 

As for Islam being a political system, there is nothing in the Qur’an about an “Islamic state,” and the Prophet himself never tried to implement an “Islamic state,” despite hysterical accusations to the contrary. Those under his leadership practiced a variety of religions.

 

Traditionally, in the Islamic world, the institutions that governed were always separate from the institutions that developed religion. In fact, they often checked and balanced one another. Although no civilization has been free from all conflict, every Islamic empire was a multi-religious, multicultural empire, in which religious minorities were governed by their own laws.

The term “Islam as a religion and a state” really only became popular in the 1920s, as a reaction to Western colonization of the Muslim world. In fact, Islam contains plenty of concepts consistent with modern democracy — for example, shura (consultation) and aqd (a contract between the governed and the governing). In other words, Muslims can be perfectly comfortable in America, following state and federal laws.

 

The Qur’an contains many verses advocating religious tolerance, too, though the anti-Islam protesters won’t believe it. The Qur’an says that: God could have made everyone into one people, but elected not to (11:118); God made us into different nations and tribes so that we can learn from one another (49:13); there is no compulsion in religion(2:256); and that we should say, “to you your religion, to me mine” (109:6).

 

The only verses about fighting in the Qur’an refer specifically to the polytheistic Arab tribes who were trying to kill the Prophet in the 7th century. So the Islamophobes who look in the Qur’an for the fighting verses and assume that these verses refer to them personally are simply being narcissistic. Contrary to counting Jews and Christians as “infidels,” the Qur’an repeatedly commands particular respect of Jews and Christians. It is established in Islam that you don’t need to be Muslim to go to heaven.

Repeating a lie over and over again doesn’t make it true; but it certainly results in people believing the lie. That’s what the Islam-haters are counting on. That, and the ignorance about Islamic tenets.

So the best thing to do is find out what Islam really is about. Talk to a Muslim in person. Read an introduction to Islam (try a fun one like mine). Read Loonwatch to read about the holes in the anti-Islamic rhetoric. Or take a look at the University of Georgia’s informational website on Islam, for some quick answers and further reading. If you read the anti-Islam fear-mongering websites, all you’ll learn will be tall tales.
Bigotry may be a human tendency, but America has never stood for bigotry. I believe in an America that stands for pluralism and multicultural understanding. The hysteria and hate toward Muslims – resulting in several acts of violence against Muslims, such as stabbing and arson – is un-American. We must stop it, and the first step is understanding and education.

Jewish Challenges to Zionism on the Rise in the US

By Gabriel Ash, Emily Katz Kashawi, Mich Levy and Sara Kershnar; 14 June 2010 

In June 2010, two opposite ends of the Jewish political spectrum will vie for one historical moment. As Israel and the Zionist movement struggle to maintain their century-long pull on Jewish minds, a new project is emerging to re-chart the course away from Zionism and toward embracing a renewed commitment to a shared humanity.

On 19-22 June, just prior to the US Social Forum, North American Jews will gather in Detroit to challenge racism, colonialism and imperialism — first and foremost by contributing to efforts to overcome Zionism and decolonize Palestine.

The 2010 US Assembly of Jews: Confronting Racism and Israeli Apartheid comes at a time when there is great urgency to build on recent successes of the Palestine solidarity movement, and as United States corporations and the government continue to commit grave injustices in Palestine — not to mention in its own communities.

This event follows on the heels of the 36th Congress of the World Zionist Organization (WZO) to be held in Jerusalem that same week. The WZO was founded in 1897 at the First Zionist Congress to serve as the umbrella organization for the Zionist movement. At this upcoming gathering, the Congress will no doubt reassert and refocus its strategies for defending Israel’s legitimacy against growing condemnations, attempts to hold Israel accountable for war crimes, and the successes of the movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions.

The WZO is both a symbol and a founding institution of Zionist political thought and action that brought us to this current historical moment. One finds an illustration of this disastrous trajectory in the press releases the WZO published during Israel’s 2008-09 winter invasion of Gaza. For example, on 12 January, by the time most of the horrible facts of the massacre were already public knowledge, the WZO opposed UN Security Council Resolution 1860 calling for an immediate ceasefire, labeling it “anti-Israel,” and criticized it for failing to demand “humanitarian assistance” to Israel. Many leading Zionist organizations echoed similar positions, whereas “softer” Zionist organizations waffled and fumbled. Reading their expressions of apology, support and indeed even encouragement for unconscionable crimes, it is painful to imagine that a beating heart was linked with the hand that typed them.

Likewise, on 31 May of this year, a monumental effort to break the illegal and crippling siege on Gaza was recently thwarted by the Israeli government. A flotilla comprised of six boats, 700 peace and solidarity activists from more than 40 countries delivering 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid was attacked by the Israeli navy and taken control of by killing and injuring people on a boat flying a Turkish flag in international waters. The inhumanity and illegality of these acts are undeniable and increasingly in the public eye.

As awareness of Israel’s moral and political bankruptcy is growing worldwide, so does the authoritarianism, violence and self-righteous fanaticism of the Israeli authorities and of growing sections of the Israeli public.

Overcoming Zionist ideas and practice is crucial, first and foremost, because of the impact of its institutionalized racism and colonialism on the people of Palestine and the broader region.  This impact manifests in the demand for political, legal and economic power for Jews and European people and cultures over indigenous people and cultures. This racism is also the cause of the extensive displacement and alienation of Mizrahi Jews (Jews of African and Asian descent) from their diverse histories, languages, traditions and cultures and in the marginalization and economic exploitation of its Mizrahi population and migrant workers within Israeli society.


Zionism is also anti-Semitic in its rejection of Jewish cultures and histories — including both Jews who are “other” than European and the European Jewish “victim” which it attempted to distance itself from in the creation of the “new Jew.” While rejecting the feminized Jewish victims of Christian Europe, it then uses their memory to justify and perpetuate European racism and colonialism and a militarized Jewish state. Likewise, Zionism promotes Islamophobia in Palestine, the broader region, the US and around the world.  And the resentment and anger toward Jews living in Israel and elsewhere, aroused by Israeli violence and military domination, is used to justify further Zionist violence.

Zionism perpetuates Jewish exceptionalism and tells a version of Jewish history that is disconnected from the history and experiences of other people. By exceptionalizing the Nazi genocide, Jews are set apart from the victims and survivors of that and other genocides instead of being united with them. As such, Zionism implicates us in the oppression of the Palestinian people and in the debasement of our own heritages, struggles for justice and alliances with our fellow human beings.

The strategy to promote an understanding of Israel as an apartheid state is having increasing success, particularly in its explanation of why boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel are justified. Advances in this arena are rattling Zionist organizations in Israel and around the world. However, Zionist institutions like the WZO, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Anti-Defamation League, The Simon Wiesenthal Center, B’nai B’rith and others in the US and elsewhere have access to millions of dollars to spend on shielding Israel from accountability for its apartheid policies and its accelerating war crimes, and for furthering the colonization, ethnic cleansing and the theft and destruction of Palestinian land.

The confluence of interests between the Israeli state, global capitalist interests, especially that of weapon manufacturers, “post-conflict” construction and security companies and the oil industry is going strong. Islamophobic reactions in Western Europe, the US and Canada and general xenophobia seeks to use Muslims and immigrants as the scapegoats for the universal crisis of capitalism and excuses for perpetual war and occupation.

US and Israeli military aggression in the region support and reinforce each other. Despite American concerns that Israeli policy damages the image of the US, Israel’s economic and military power in the region is deemed vital by Washington. As a corollary, it is ever more apparent that pro-Israel lobbies in the US are opposed to anti-war efforts. The Zionist organizations and the Israeli lobby increasingly align with the neoconservatives in the US and share their investment in the agenda of war, occupation and/or sanctions against Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Lebanon and Syria.

Anti-Zionist Jews in the US can play a role in asserting to the anti-war movement that meaningful headway will not be possible without confronting the role Israel plays in provoking and justifying the US’s war agenda. After decades of debate and hesitation, Palestine is still a point of contention in the American anti-war movement. Challenging the US funding of Israel is avoided out of concern that it will detract from critiques of the US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. Contrary to this concern, placing Palestine squarely in the center of an anti-war agenda in the US is the key to a more fundamental shift in US policy and practice of which war is a necessary strategy. In turn, through building with the anti-war movement, we can contribute to efforts to reduce the isolation of the Palestinian struggle, advance challenges to Islamophobia, and directly challenge the mutually beneficial relationship shared by the US and Israel.

Accountability of Israeli, US government and international Zionist support for Israel will not come from a shift in US policy but through shifting American public opinion and debate, fomenting popular movement, using international and US legal sanctions and supporting the Palestinian call for BDS. The 2010 US Assembly of Jews seeks to contribute to these efforts and reflects a significant departure from Zionism that has been building since the second Palestinian intifada broke the stranglehold of the Oslo accords. It has continuity with a long history of Jewish participation in struggles for human emancipation. Ours are among the growing voices of Jews who seek a departure from the course that Zionism has been and continues down — a course that is a betrayal of our humanity as it simultaneously denies that of Palestinians.

anti-NaZionist Jews

Jews have an independent case against Zionism, and we are also part of a solidarity movement. When Jews aren’t clear — either about their own confrontation of Zionism, or about the precedence of the demands of the Palestinian grassroots struggle — Jewish participation threatens to muddle rather than clarify and strengthen the Palestine solidarity movement. We must be cautious to not presume that our commitment and investment in overcoming Zionism suggest “equality” in the struggle; overstepping our actual role in the movement undermines Palestinian leadership in their own struggle, thus reinforcing the centralization of Jewish voices that Zionism promotes and racism suggests. Likewise, equating the need for Palestinian liberation and safety with safety of most Jews in contemporary Western countries is inaccurate.

The Assembly will be a chance to reflect on ourselves as a part of US and international movements for justice and bring clarity to our politics and practices so that we can increase our effectiveness. Jewish anti-Zionism is not an identity, but a politic to develop and actualize and a location from which to challenge Zionism. Organizing to gain the approval of — or legitimacy in relationship to — Jewish popular opinion, liberal Zionist organizations, or US public opinion undermines our ability to be in solidarity.

Likewise, in the long-run, rewriting Palestinian demands (e.g. excluding the right of return from BDS campaigns) to fit agendas that reinforce peace as a strategy for maintaining an exclusive Jewish state does not challenge the foundations of Zionist policies and principles. However, in the short-run any participation that advances BDS is useful in delegitimizing Israel. It is the development and sharing of distinctions such as these that will deepen and increase the possibility of a real alternative to Zionism and the ability of Jews to contribute to a powerful and effective Palestine solidarity movement. These are the issues that we hope to raise and explore with Jews and our partners in struggle at the 2010 US Assembly of Jews.

Our commitment to confronting Zionism is part of our commitment to cutting the threads of racism, anti-Semitism, elitism, fascism, colonialism and imperialism that have nourished Zionism and were institutionalized in the apartheid structures of Israel. Instead, we build continuity with the historic and current movements for human emancipation, class struggle, equality, democracy and justice. These threads have always existed in Jewish histories, against histories of Jewish collaboration with those that seek to oppress.
