Zionism Racist? Perish the Thought!

It gets better. This blog specialises in outing Jewish-Nazi Rabbis. Unfortunately they seem to sprout up everywhere. Zionism used to claim that it was scandalised by the connection made by us wicked anti-Zionists between Zionism and Racism. Today these same people are falling over themselves to prove we were right. No sooner did the UN get rid of the Zionism=Racism equation than the Zionists made a real effort to prove the UN right.

We have had the loyalty oaths, for non-Jews, we have had the Zionist Federation in this country engaging in a tease me – tease you dalliance with the English Defence League, we have had the sight and sound of thousands of demonstrators outside the Turkish Embassy and in demonstrations through Jerusalem shouting ‘Death to the Arabs’. We have even had Rabbis Dov Lior and Yaakov Yosef arguing that killing non-Jews cannot be a crime compared to killing Jews.

During a recent appearance on Antiwar Radio author and investigative journalist Max Blumenthal discusses his recent article on the Torat Ha’Melech, or the King’s Torah, a 230 page “guidebook” for Jews who are considering killing non-Jews.

According to Blumenthal:

As soon as it was published late last year,Torat Ha’Melech sparked a national uproar. The controversy began when an Israeli tabloid panned the book’s contents as “230 pages on the laws concerning the killing of non-Jews, a kind of guidebook for anyone who ponders the question of if and when it is permissible to take the life of a non-Jew.”

According to the book’s author, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, “Non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and should be killed in order to “curb their evil inclinations.” “If we kill a gentile who has has violated one of the seven commandments… there is nothing wrong with the murder,” Shapira insisted.

Citing Jewish law as his source (or at least a very selective interpretation of it) he declared: “There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.”

Which of course was the classic Nazi excuse for killing Jewish children.

Now we have the prize racist of them all, former Chief Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef, for whom non-Jews only exist in order to serve Jews. Ovadiah Yosef has now come out and said that Gentiles (non-Jews) only exist to serve Jews.

Yosef: Gentiles exist only to serve Jews

By JONAH MANDEL 18/10/2010

According to Rabbi, the lives of non-Jews in Israel are safeguarded by divinity, to prevent losses to Jews.

The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi OvadiaYosef, the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator.

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel,” he said in his weekly Saturday night sermon on the laws regarding the actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on Shabbat.

According to Yosef, the lives of non-Jews in Israel are safeguarded by divinity, to prevent losses to Jews.

“In Israel, death has no dominion over them… With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why?

Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant… That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” Yosef said.

“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created,” he added.

Yosef’s Saturday night sermons have seen many controversial statements from the 90-year-old rabbi. In August, Yosef caused a diplomatic uproar when he wished a plague upon the Palestinian people and their leaders, a curse he retracted a few weeks later, when he blessed them along with all of Israel’s other peace-seeking neighbors.

Gilad Atzmon: There Is No Business like Shoa Business

Seventeen people have been charged in the US with the theft of $42m of Holocaust compensation funds provided by the German government.

US Attorney Preet Bharara said ‘we are dealing here with “thousands of false applications.” The fraudsters duped people into applying who were not eligible so everyone could share funds that never should have never been allocated in the first place.

“If ever there was a cause that you would hope and expect would be immune from base greed and criminal fraud, it would be ‘the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany’, which every day assists thousands of poor and elderly victims of Nazi persecution,” said Bharara. “Sadly, those victim’s funds were themselves victimized.”

FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Janice K. Fedarcyk said in a statement, “Each of the defendants played a role in creating, filing and processing fraudulent claims on behalf of non-qualifying applicants — and dividing up the spoils. Funds established and financed by the German government to aid Holocaust survivors were siphoned off by the greedy, and not paid out, as intended, to the worthy.”

The FBI was courageous enough to look into holocaust greed. I wonder how long will it take for our historians to be brave enough to treat WWII as a historical chapter.  How long will it take to European countries to remove Holocaust denial laws and reinstate freedom of speech?  How long will it take before we manage to look at Jewish history as a continuum instead of isolated patches of victimhood loaded with false legitimacy to rob Palestinians.

I guess not too long.

Is any war moral?  Why does America need an enemy?  Why does Israel need an enemy?  Yes.  Let us indeed stand up for those who ‘stand up against war.’

But let us not see soldiers as ‘serving’ their country.  Many are the ways of serving one’s fellow kind.  War is not one of them.

Please watch this very brief but meaningful video.

Dear Dorothy, 

Tomorrow is Veterans Day, the 10th Veterans Day since the Afghanistan War began.

The burden of this brutal, futile war falls heaviest on a very small slice of the population: military members and their families. Many of them think that this war is immoral, and that makes fighting in it a weight they’ll have to carry their whole lives. Our new video features the voices of some of these veterans, urging us to rethink the burden we’re laying on troops.

Rethink Afghanistan is partnering with the Truth Commission on Conscience in War to help lift some of this burden. We’re pushing to expand the rights of veterans who refuse to serve in specific wars on moral grounds. Right now you have to oppose all wars, ever, to be granted conscientious objector status. That’s silly–you don’t have to be a pacifist to think it’s morally wrong to be fighting an endless war in Afghanistan. You can learn more about this push to honor troops’ consciences at the Truth Commission on Conscience in War’s website.

Share this video with your friends to help honor those who stood up to say, “I can’t fight this war. My conscience won’t allow it.” Let’s all remember what we’re asking of our troops on this Veterans Day.

“Wartorn 1861-2010” New Doc Chronicles Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from Civil War to Iraq & Afghanistan


A new documentary, Wartorn 1861-2010, airing on HBO on Veterans Day, chronicles the lingering effects of war on military veterans throughout American history, from the Civil War through today’s conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We speak with the filmmakers, Jon Alpert and Matt O’Neill, and with the parents of two soldiers who committed suicide after coming home from Iraq. [includes rush transcript]

Young Jewish Voices coming from New Orleans, Ringing Loud and Clear (and making waves, too!)

As I watched the action, by 5 young Jewish activists, inside the hall where Netanyahu was busy disseminating his pile of tired platitudes, I was imbued by a sense of thrill, tinged with some anxiety as the temperature in the room was rising with each interruption. The last activist, Rae Abileah, was put in a chokehold by one in the crowd, eager to defend Israel at all costs from the 28 year old menace.

My cathartic experience has to do, no doubt, with a long history of frustration and rage at the way my local JCC and The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona have for decades kept people such as myself from speaking in forums on Israel/Palestine and from expressing our views on the role we feel organized Jews should play in working to end the atrocities committed in our name. It was decided from above, time and again, by the (unelected) leadership, that opposition to Israeli policies is beyond the pale, a political act! while support for Israeli policies, even when delivered by Israeli politicians is never characterized as such.

Hence the excitement! 

The video of the action can be found at
The demonstration got amazingly wide coverage – especially considering the fact that most work and action by left wing activists gets ignored, or hardly reported on.

It’s important to mention that many other activists – under the wing of Jewish Voice for Peace – have taken part in preparing for this and related activities. To see an account by one of the 5, read Rae Abileah’s Jewish Values vs. Israeli Policies: Why five young Jews disrupted PM Netanyau in New Orleans, at:

I’ve included an account, some in prose and some in the form of a poem, by activist Rachel Roberts.

Rachel Roberts: Challenging the Jewish General Assembly

Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at 10:48pm

By now, almost all of you have certainly heard that I am one of the young Jews who went to New Orleans this week to challenge the exclusivist, anti-Palestinian, fear infused, anti-peace space created by the mainstream Jewish community at the Jewish General Assembly.

Together, our collective wrote poetry to express how we feel, not only about our strong objections to American Jewish complicity in unjust Israeli policy, but to express our dismay at what the American Jewish community has become. Sadly, my many responsibilities in Los Angeles meant that I was unable to stay for the disruption of Netanyahu’s speech, but I wrote this poem for the brave young Jewish students who took part.

Since the disruption there has been an outpouring of love for us, but some within the mainstream Jewish community have chosen to critique us for not being civil enough. They assert that if only we massaged them in the right way, if we jump through their various hoops, they would respect us. I know,however, that they need to hear our rage and our bitterness. They need to know that we believe that they have failed us, because their ears and their hearts are closed. These are my words and I hope they will inspire you to stand up tall against their agenda, for it truly is what threatens world Jewry.

Let Them Know

Today let them feel both our bitterness and our love, for both are our tools.

Let them know our faces and hear our truths.

May they stop pretending that we are invisible, that they can provide us with pre-recorded talking points for us to simply playback.

Do not allow them to forget our anger and disappointment at the way they have failed us, because they must know.

Let them know about the young Israelis who speak fluent Arabic so that they might hear Palestinians, with whom they march every week, in their own words.

Remind them that the soft skin burned and melted because of the white phosphorous thrown on purpose is also our skin.

Remind them that each slab of concrete in the apartheid wall separates them from us.

When they feel our anger and disappointment, may they also feel our electric faith- our thrill at the prospect for a truly just future.

we are not their bastard delegitimate children, but the beautiful future.
May they someday realize that we have saved them and hold their legacy so dear that we could not let go.

***Please Circulate Widely: Please Make an Appointment***

Lobby of Parliament for Palestine

Wednesday 24 November

What you should do now:

– Contact your MP now asking for a meeting in the House of Commons on Wednesday 24 November between 2pm and 6pm – (Use to make an appointment).

– Once you’ve let your MP know that you are going to lobby them make sure you email:

All info here:

Please come and lobby your MP as part of our Annual Lobby of Parliament in November and help demonstrate support for the Palestinian people. In 2010 this event will be held on Wednesday 24th November from 2-6pm in the House of Commons.

It will be followed by a rally in Parliament at 6.30pm with speakers including Gerald Kaufman MP and Baroness Jenny Tonge.

This year’s lobby of parliament is critical, as the government have announced that they will bring in changes to weaken the law on issuing arrest warrants for war criminals (universal jurisdiction) – we will be sending a strong message that those responsible for war crimes should be prosecuted, not welcomed.

We have also seen how local people lobbying their MPs greatly improves the willingness of MPs to take up the issue of Palestine – including by signing Early Day Motions (EDMs); tabling parliamentary questions; pressing ministers or joining bodies like the Britain-Palestine All-Party Parliamentary Group.

This year we want you to ask your MP to:

  • Call for an immediate end to the siege on Gaza

  • Oppose Government proposals to change Universal Jurisdiction: these proposals add a political dimension to a legal decision and introduce a source of delay when urgent action may be required to stop a suspected war criminals escape justice.

  • Support the suspension of the EU-Israel Association Agreement until Israel ends its illegal occupation

Supporting the lobby in 2010

There is a common belief that lobbying requires some special expertise. It doesn’t.

This guide is designed to make lobbying easier for anyone interested in making their case to their MP You are simply asking your MP to do their job by listening to your concerns and to consider taking up those concerns in Parliament and with Government.

Please read the attached ‘how to lobby’ guide, and our key facts briefing before meeting your MP.

Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC),     Jews for Justice for Palestinians (JfJfP) and the Council for Arab-British Understanding (CAABU) will be at the Commons on 24th November to provide you with help and support for your meeting with your MP. Information is also available on-line so you can prepare for your meeting in advance.

If it is difficult for you to get to Parliament on the 24th you can also arrange to meet your MP at another time that suits you both. This could be at their local office or advice surgery or you could invite them to a public meeting if you are part of a group. The important thing is that you let your MP know you care about Palestine .

Netanyahu + Biden = More Illegal Settlements

On the eve of yet another meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Vice President  Joe Biden—this time Bibi came to our shores—Israel announced  plans to construct some 1,000 new housing units in Har Homa, the illegal settlement for Jews only on the outskirts of  the West Bank Christian towns of Bethlehem and Beit Sahour. (Israel considers Har Homa part of East Jerusalem, which it illegally annexed and expanded following the 1967 Six-Day War.)

Once again, Israel maintained that the timing of the announcement was coincidental, and not an attempt to embarass Biden. And once again, as he did during his March 2009 visit to Jerusalem, Biden responded with groveling praise of Israel.

Biden and Netanyahu had both traveled to New Orleans—which itself still lacks adequate housing for all its citizens—to attend the 2010 General Assembly of The Jewish Federations of North America. According to the organization’s Web site,, Biden told the gathering after his meeting with Netanyahu, “When it comes to Israel’s security there can be no daylight between the U.S. and Israel.” He added, “The Jewish Federations’ recent initiative to counter de-legitimization attempts through the Israel Action Network is so important and so appreciated by the president and me.”

Israel also plans to build an additional 800 housing units in the illegal West Bank settlement of Ariel. (All Israeli settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are illegal according to international law.)

Meanwhile, while visiting Jakarta, President Barack Obama criticized the construction plans, saying, “This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations, and I’m concerned that we’re not seeing each side make the extra effort involved to get a breakthrough.”

Perhaps because Israel already has received its entire $3 billion in U.S. military aid for the coming year, Netanyahu was quick to shoot down his American benefactor. According to a statement issued by the Israeli prime minister’s office, “Israel sees no connection at all between the peace process and building plans in Jerusalem.”

Now that the Nov. 2 elections are over, it’s time to call the White House and your elected representatives in Congress to demand that American tax dollars not be used to further Israel’s illegal actions. Let elected officials know that they will be held accountable in  2012.

EXPLOSIVE–Senate Foreign Relations Committee Investigates Zionist Groups in 1961-1963 For Their Role in False Flag attacks against America

November 10, 2010

–Ed. note–There is no other word to use for this except simply EXPLOSIVE. As Grant Smith of points out, newly classified documents originating from Senate Foreign Relations committe investigations reveal that Israel and her agents were being investigated for “false flag” attacks on America.

On October 21, 2010 the National Archives and Records Administration released Box #1 (of 67) from sealed US Senate records about the activities of non diplomatic representatives of foreign governments active in the United States.  The formerly classified documents reveal the rationale for extensive investigations and Justice Department enforcement actions in 1962-1963.  Top US lobbying firms, public relations consultants and foreign lobbying groups were ordered to submit records under threat of subpoena to Senate Foreign Relations Committee researchers.

A declassified March 17, 1961 three-page memorandum outlines why the Senate Foreign Relations Committee focused intensely on the Jewish Agency, the American Zionist Council and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (then functioning as the AZC’s lobbying division, before incorporating):

“In recent years there has been an increasing number of incidents involving attempts by foreign governments, or their agents, to influence the conduct of American foreign policy by techniques outside normal diplomatic channels…..there have been occasions when representatives of other governments have been privately accused of engaging in covert activities within the United States and elsewhere, for the purpose of influencing United States Policy (the Lavon Affair).”

The “Lavon Affair” refers to a false flag Israeli terrorist bombing plot code named “Operation Susannah” against US and other targets in Egypt.  It was designed to reverse US policy pressuring British withdrawals and reverting control of the Suez Canal to Egypt.  Israeli agents infiltrating as Arabs were discovered, arrested and criminally prosecuted in Egypt when their explosives malfunctioned, leading to a crisis in the Israeli government and relations with the US.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which mentioned the Lavon incident twice in three pages, expressed caution about investigating such sensitive matters.  “There would undoubtedly (even with care) be instances which would lead to foreign governmental protests, to violent attacks by special groups in the United States…” 

The declassified Senate memo suggested three avenues for Senate investigation.  “I. Public receipt of testimony from Department of Justice and Department of State….II. Public receipt of testimony from selected law and public relations firms….III Executive (perhaps public) receipt of testimony on the Lavon Affair, and similar ‘grey area’ activities…”

The Senate record of the May 23 and August 1, 1963 hearings on Israel lobbying outline covert activities, but many were heavily redacted at the insistence of the Jewish Agency and its allies in Congress. No testimony on the Lavon Affair or any other false flag attacks was ever given during the investigation.

03/17/1961   Confidential Staff Report to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair J.W. Fulbright“In recent years there has been an increasing number of incidents involving attempts by foreign governments, or their agents, to influence the conduct of American foreign policy by techniques outside normal diplomatic channels…..there have been occasions when representatives of other governments have been privately accused of engaging in covert activities within the United States and elsewhere, for the purpose of influencing United States Policy (the Lavon Affair).”
Internal   Library of Congress – Staff report on whether Foreign Agent material was on file at Library of Congress as required by 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act“Lenvin [Nathan Lenvin, head of the FARA Section at DOJ] told me that the Library [of Congress] had set aside a room to handle all the material that was flowing up there, but everything turned out to fit on just a few shelves.  The man in the stacks who has jurisdiction over the material said I was the first person who had ever come to look at it.”
05/10/1961   Letter from DOJ FARA Section Chief Nathan Lenvin to John Newhouse, Senate Foreign Relations Committee listing all FARA related prosecutions from 1/1/1950 to 5/5/1961…”U.S. v. Hector Garcia Soto On May 3, 1960, an indictment was returned in the Southern District of Florida against Hector Garcia Soto for a willful failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The case went to trial and the defendant was acquitted by the jury….”

09/29/1961   Outline of Further Staff Investigation into Influences of Foreign Governments and Other Foreign Groups Upon U.S. Foreign Policy through Non-Diplomatic Channels“1. To what extent is United states foreign policy being influenced through nondiplomatic channels by foreign governments and other foreign groups?2. To what extent are the following – and other – channels being used by foreign governments?3.To what extent are the following – and other – practices employed by foreign governments? 

4. Is the Foreign Agents Registration Act adequate to protect the American public against improper influences by foreign governments and parties?

5. Do traditional international concepts of t1improper interference in internal affairs” require review? At what point does the need of the U. S. Government to influence foreign governments and public opinion impose a limit on U. S. restraints on propaganda and public relations activities of foreign governments here?

6. To what extent are intelligence and internal security agencies of the U. S. Government cognizant of propaganda and public relations activities of foreign governments and parties? To what extent do such agencies facilitate or sponsor such activities?”

10/05/1961   Memorandum for the Record: “Timing of further staff investigation regarding non-diplomatic influences by foreign governments.”   “The chairman decided today that he liked the attached outline [9/29/1961] of a further staff investigation on this subject and the idea of hiring Walter Pincus to help John Newhouse, but he also decided that the start of such additional staff work should be delayed until 1, April of 1962.”

The video above is of a number of young people working with Jewish Voice for Peace disrupting Netanyahu’s speech at Florida.They have started a campaign called Young, Jewish, and Proud as part of this initiative; I was proud to see my friends Matan Cohen, Emily Ratner, and Rae Abileah among those who stood up and screamed at Netanyahu. I was scared to see the audience’s reaction: the boos, the cheering, the ripping-apart of the posters. They made it very clear what was going on there. It was a hate rally.
