I$raHell has close to 100 Nuclear Weapons Stored at its Dimona Facility

Israel’s Nukes ,
Israel has close to 100 nuclear weapons stored at its Dimona facility, yet no American president has ever publicly mentioned Israel’s nuclear weapons. At the 2010 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, the final statement criticized Israel for not joining the Non Proliferation Treaty. The double standard rose its ugly head. Obama’s statement at the close of the treaty. 
“The United States has long supported such a [nuclear-free Middle East] zone, although our view is that a comprehensive and durable peace in the region and full compliance by all regional states with their arms control and nonproliferation obligations are essential precursors for its establishment. We strongly oppose efforts to single out Israel, and will oppose actions that jeopardize Israel’s national security,”
But Israel is different, they would never proliferate nuclear weapons, they are America’s best friend, the only democracy in the Middle East. Well, they are a democracy if you weren’t born in what is now Israel as a Palestinian. The Guardian reported recently on how declassified apartheid-era documents show that Israel tried to sell nuclear weapons to South Africa. “Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons."

At least 75 killed in Pakistan church double suicide bombing.

Two suicide bombers have attacked a church in the city of Peshawar, killing at least 75 people and wounding a further 110 in the deadliest attack on Pakistan’s Christian minority in recent history.

A wing of the Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the bombing. Attacks on security forces and sectarian violence have been increasing in frequency in Pakistan in recent months, undermining the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s attempts to engage the militants in peace negotiations.

In the latest attack, the bombers struck All Saints Church, a historic white stone building in the north western town of Peshawar, where 600 worshipers were gathered for Sunday Mass.

The attackers detonated their devices as people were streaming out of the church to get a free meal of rice, Sahibzada Anees, a senior government administrator told AP.

A bomb disposal expert said that there were two explosions carried out by a pair of attackers.

A local police officer, Najeeb Bogvi, told Reuters that more than 100 people were wounded in the twin blasts, and AP put the number at 110.

“I heard two explosions. People started to run. Human remains were strewn all over the church,” a woman who only gave her first name Margaret told Reuters, her voice shaking with emotion as she tried to find her missing sister.

“When I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around,” said Nazir John, another worshiper.

A former information minister who was on the scene said that the local hospital was running out of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded.

Some of the nearby residents took to the streets after the attack shouting and burning tires, to protest at what they see as a lack of security at the church.

“Terrorists have not spared mosques, temples and churches. Please have mercy on us,” one man told Pakistan’s Geo Television channel.

The Taliban and other Sunni Muslim militants frequently bomb Christian, Sufi and Shi’ite targets, which they say are heretical.

Pakistan is suffering from a vicious Taliban insurgency of Sunni Muslim militants and has become increasingly dangerous for any religious minorities, including Shi’ite Muslims and Ahmadis, as well as Christians, who make up about 4% of Pakistan’s population of 180 million.

“The Prime Minister said that terrorists have no religion and targeting innocent people is against the teachings of Islam and all religions, such cruel acts of terrorism reflect the brutality and inhumane mind set of the terrorists,” the PM’s office said in a statement.

This is by far the most deadly attack on Pakistan’s Christian community in recent years. In 2009, a church and 40 houses in Gojra in Punjab province were set ablaze by a mob of 1,000 Muslims, with seven people burning to death.

(AP Photo) Cue the conspiracy theories: Yale alumnus and ex-chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Austan Goolsbee invited members of the Yale secret society Skull and Bones into the White House, BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins scoops:

Late one afternoon on March 4, 2011, eight college students arrived at the White House to meet with President Obama’s top economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee. The meeting was never publicized, and the agenda items being discussed remain unknown. But there was one thread that connected everyone present that day: they were all members of Yale’s storied, elite secret society, Skull and Bones. The secret society doesn’t release the names of its members, referred to as “Bonesmen,” but the Ivy League gossip blog IvyGate regularly has the roster leaked to them. Cross-checking their list with the White House visitor log on March 4 reveals that at least eight members of the 2010-2011 class were present at the Goolsbee meeting.

Skull and Bones has prompted a lot of speculation over the years given the prominence of many ex-members, including John Kerry and George W. Bush. Goolsbee wouldn’t answer BuzzFeed’s questions about the visit.

SKULL AND BONES: A SMUG AND ENTITLED CULT SEEKING NON-TRANSPARENT, NON-ACCOUNTABLE, NON-CONSTRAINED “FULL-SPECTRUM DOMINANCE”

Response by Jim Craven/Omahkohkiaaiipooyii

This is really outrageous on so many levels. And I just saw Austan Goolsby on Charlie Rose Show tonight. But as the flashed his name and affiliation at University of Chicago over the screen, they did not mention Skull and Bones and what it is really all about.

Notice in the article that usual “conspiracy theorists” reference to anyone who proposes a sober, no-fear-no-favor, evidence and law driven, examination of Skull and Bones and why no one is allowed to even mention it let alone ask what it is all about.

And by the way, if conspiracies do not actually exist, and indeed do not go on all the time in many venues and spheres of human activity, then why do we have laws against them and why are there a lot of people in jail convicted for them?

Conspiracy is a covert agreement and formation of a common plan, by two or more persons, to pursue objectives and engage in activities they know or should know to be illegal. Whenever the activities are covered-up, and proper law enforcement obstructed from any ability to investigate (oaths of highest allegiance internally to “The Order”), whenever you have lies and lying justified, you have both the makings as well as indicia of conspiracy. There is no need to lie, and thus no consciousness of guilt manifested, if one is clean and what one is doing is clean–only when it is dirty. There is no need to frame and deny due process when one is certain a person is likely guilty, case is clean and prosecutable–only when the accused is likely or possibly innocent and the case against is weak or non-existent.

SKULL AND BONES IS BASICALLY A PREPPY KKK WEARING BLACK RATHER THAN WHITE ROBES

What if President Obama was placing in cabinet positions, in various intelligence services, as Secretary of State instead of John Kerry, in various high-level and sensitive positions, people who were say covert members of the KKK or some ultra-left or ultra-right cabal? How would that fly? Well how does he know that he is not inviting into the highest echelons of power elements of a kind of preppy KKK that basically have the same views as members of the KKK when you cut through the faux “polish” and “refinement” of the preppy.

Here is a man who simply asked Kerry if he was a member of Skull and Bones and was immediately grabbed and tasered. When confronted, with a simple question he did not have to answer were he a private-sector employee, but cannot refuse to answer as a public employee, he turned loose his hired thugs where the real thug was the one who set the whole thing up in case anyone asked about Skull and Bones.

secrets of the tomb 51exNDFbBpL._SY346_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_

Or how about Alexandria Robbins interviewed over 100 Bonesmen and who wrote the pioneering “Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones and the Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power:

“Certainly, Skull and Bones does cross boundaries in order to attempt to stay out of the public spotlight. when I wrote an article about the society for the “Atlantic Monthly” in May 2000, an older Bonesman said to me, ‘If it is not portrayed positively, I’m sending a couple of my friends after you.’ After the article was published, I received a telephone call at my office from a fellow journalist, who is a member of Skull and Bones. He scolded me for writing the article–’writing that article was not an ethical or honorable way to make a decent living in journalism’ he condescended–and then asked how much I had been paid for the story. When I refused to answer, he hung up. Fifteen minutes later, he called back.

‘ I have just gotten off the phone with our people’.

‘Your people’, I snickered.

‘Yes, our people’. He told me that the society demanded to know where I got my information.

‘I’ve never been in the tomb and I did nothing illegal in the process of reporting this article’, I replied.

‘Then you must have gotten something from one of us. Tell me whom you spoke to. We just want to talk to them,’ he wheedled.

‘I don’t reveal my sources’

Then he got angry. He screamed at me for awhile about how dishonorable I was for writing the article. ‘A lot of people are very despondent over this!’, he yelled. ‘Fifteen Yale juniors are very, very upset!.”

I thanked him for telling me his concerns.

‘There are a lot of us at newspapers and at political journalism institutions’, he coldly hissed. ‘Good luck with your career’–and he slammed down the phone. (p. 9)

Just the other day, 12 people murdered, one suicide-by-cop, by an individual who had to prior arrests, both involving a discharge of firearms, a history of “anger-management” issues, a general discharge from the Navy not a full honorable discharge, yet still has a Secret Clearance and access to very sensitive restricted military areas. And in response to questions by MSM how was this possible? Their answer is only that they regret that with over 5 million people with clearances, the “Global War on Terror and stretched-thin forces, well some bad actors will get through–but we” do better…”

But if you really think about it, the real problem has always been what criteria are being applied and scored in any of the security clearance checks. For example, in my own case, I was vetted and had a Secret Clearance granted prior to and conditional upon my completing Basic Training. And my clearances were subject to re-vetting at any time and loss of clearance if anything changed. I didn’t get to stand up and walk out of the room if the name of an organization I was a member of was even mentioned. I didn’t get to say, ” I’m sorry I have taken an oath to that organization not to discuss even my membership in it and why, let alone answer any questions about myself or any fellow member no matter what the concern or charges even treason, espionage or the like.

Skull_Bones_Protest_400

Questions asked on security clearance vettings are classified; but some are obvious or have been published. II presumably like all persons was asked about my family, friends, previous contacts and if any of them had been communists or socialists, convicted criminals. But they never asked me if any of them or I were fascists. They never asked if any of them of I were racists, misogynists, anti-Semites, psychopaths, sociopaths, liars, opportunists, mercenaries, all the types that might well break an oath taken.

Anyone ever heard of Ali Mohamed? He was a former Egyptian Army officer, former Egyptian Special Ops commando, worked many time with American forces and attended American academies, came to the U.S., married an American woman, worked for CIA in Europe, at Fort Bragg in the Green Berets and with Delta where he taught Arabic and “Arab Culture” at the JFK Special Warfare Center, with FBI in California, and of course passed all sorts of vetting and high security clearances.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Mohamed

But he had another name outside of America” “Ali the American” as he was known by his Al-Qaeda brothers for whom he had been trained and infiltrated with the “long-game” in mind. Well you don’t get more “anti-Communist” than Hitler and Al-Qaeda. And this is the result that Al Qaeda counted on: that the notion of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is for the un-principled and their weak/blind spot among others.

So by their own admissions they should have never publicly made, neither the FBI, nor CIA nor JSOC and Special Operations Command has ever infiltrated Al-Qaeda at any high level, but AQ was able to place a highly-trained, long-game, sleeper, with known associations with those who assassinated Sadat, into CIA, FBI and even Special Operations Command at Ft. Bragg where Delta Force is headquartered and where he taught Arabic and “Arab Culture” and the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and was later found with Top Secret training manuals and other classified materials.

Because whatever else he was, he like so many dictators supported by the U.S., like the wanted Nazi and Japanese war criminals shielded from prosecution and put on the CIA payroll after World War II, they all passed the central test for a security clearance: rabid anti-Communism, anti-Socialism, professed anti-terrorism, etc.

I was never asked the question: “Do you belong, or have you belonged, or do you know anyone who has belonged, to any secret society where the members take a sacred oath to keep secret and actively protect all aspects of the group including from law enforcement and whose oath is sworn to trump all other oaths taken or to be taken including the oath to support and defend the U.S., Constitution and to obey all laws.

Highest oaths, with strategic intentions to use the trappings and weaknesses and contradictions of “representative democracy” to overthrow and prevent the restoration of anything resembling democracy, are not only standard tradecraft with groups that are secular and political, but also with religious groups like the Mormons (Temple-Recommend Oath to work toward a Mormon Theocracy over America) or as in the case of the Masons (Deists at least formally; Masons also have outer and inner rings of power and awareness of the organization and its aims). In fact, there are and always have been high-degrees of actual cross-over (people in multiple organizations that appear separate and with separate ideologies) in the Masonic Order, Skull and Bones and Mormon rituals, myths, symbols and garments, hierarchical structures, elitism, words of the actual oaths.

Notice the Masonic regalia in this White House photo? According to a DVD called “America’s Book of Secrets” (designed to draw in and titilate “conspiracy buffs” and they try to discredit popular notions [supported by conspiracy facts not theories]. They, and other sources claim that out of 44 presidents, 14 have been Masons.:
George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Howard Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Gerald Ford. (14 out of 44) Why did they leave out both GHW and GW Bush both of whom are alleged to be also Masons? http://www.mastermason.com/wilmettepark/pres.html

Perhaps because that would show in addition to 16 out of 44 U.S. presidents Masons, but three of them, Taft and the Bushes, and almost Kerry in 2004, have been secret members of a secret, non-transparent, non-accessible, non-accountable and both covert as well as clandestine cult that has produced only 15 new members per year since 1832.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Freemasons

Because when push comes to shove, as it does for many, whether or not one keeps the secrets and mandates of law to which he or she has been entrusted, is a matter of character and all that that means: integrity, courage to do what is right, honor etc.

Look at two of the most damaging traitors from CIA and FBI, Aldrich Ames [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldrich_Ames] and Robert Hanssen [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Hanssen ] respectively who, from a typical security clearance set of criteria and questions would of course qualify for the highest level clearances they held as both of them were in relatively high levels of Counter-intelligence.

Hanssen and his father both were part of the Chicago Police “Red Squad”, both virulent anti-Communists, both racists and homophobes, both ultra-rightist in politics; Robert Hanssen was a devout Catholic and member of the secret society Opus Dei within it (went to the same church as the CIA director and three Supreme Court justices). And Aldrich Ames was the son of a 30-year CIA officer, a rabid anti-Communist, didn’t use drugs (but was an alcoholic living visibly beyond his salary).

So what is Skull and Bones really and what types are recruited into it? Should anyone, whether Skull and Bones or any other secret society like it, the Masons, and some others, secular or religious like the Mormons, any, that require an oath of absolute obedience and fealty to trump any and all other oaths taken or to be taken, be allowed to infiltrate anyone into a position of trust and requiring security clearances? Skull and Bones is about the long-game and infiltration and control of the commanding heights not only of the economy but of the other spheres of the overall system–global–as well: politics, law, culture, social stratification, geography, history, all of it–their own kind of “Full Spectrum Dominance”.

As the guy whose silverware they keep and revere–Hitler–put it after the failed attempt in 1923 to gain power by force, and Hitler realized that it was more feasible to build the Nazi party up “within the framework of the Constitution.” (Bullock 130; [edition is 1962 unless otherwise noted]) Said Hitler in 1925: “If out-voting them takes longer than out-shooting them, at least the result would be guaranteed by their own constitution…Any lawful process is slow…Sooner or later we shall have a majority — and after that, Germany.” (Bullock 130) [1] This ideology is the core of Hitler’s German-style democracy: where a leader is chosen democratically, then assumes full power and responsibility over the people. (Fischer 170) Hitler’s tactics for gaining power changed, but the purpose of his mission, to overthrow the Weimar Republic, remained steadfast. To Hitler, no cost was too high for triumph; in overthrowing the Republic in 1933, Hitler made good on his vow to “destroy democracy with the weapons of democracy.” (Grunfeld 109)

Bush-Nazi marquee

Skull and Bones Members Financed Hitler and the Rise of the Nazis from 1924 onward including during World War II. They were also in the leadership of the Anglo-American Eugenics Movement that “inspired” the “Race-Hygiene” laws and practices of 27 U.S. States, Canada, Australia and the Nazis themsleves.

and:

When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already…. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.” – Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), German dictator. speech, Nov. 6, 1933. Quoted in William L. Shirer, “Education in the Third Reich,” ch. 8, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (1959)

and:

“Capital must protect itself in every way…Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law applied by the central power of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capitalism to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd.” — Taken from the Civil Servants’ Year Book, “The Organizer” January 1934

and:

they proceeded on the sound principle that the magnitude of a lie always contains a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, and that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity of their minds, they more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads, and they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery and infamous misrepresentation in others; yes, even when enlightened on the subject, they will long doubt and waver and continue to accept at least one of these causes as true. Therefore, something of even the most insolent lie will always remain and stick — a fact which all the great lie-virtuosi and lying-clubs in the world know only too well and also make the most treacherous use of. — Adolph Hitler

These quotes reflect the mentalities and intentions of secret societies of networked power and wealth, many of which were actual financiers of Hitler and the Nazis from 1924 onward to include through World War II during which some 380 U.S. corporations continued to trade with the Nazis and other Axis Powers right up to the end of the war. Does that qualify as treason?

Elderly Nun Concludes Syrian Chemical Attack Pre-Staged

NOVANEWS

As if you didn’t already know, now a 65-year old nun is here to tell you that the chemical attack in Syria was staged to declare another false war.

Syrian American protesters gather outside the U.S Capitol urging Congress to support U.S. President Barack Obama in striking Syria for using chemical weapons against its own people September 9, 2013 in Washington, DC. Obama is scheduled to address the nation on the issue tomorrow night, with votes in the Senate and House likely to take place later this week. (Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images)

By Shepard Ambellas

ADONIS, LEBANON — After an intense personal investigation into the chemical weapon attacks carried out in Syria last month, a 61-year old nun has concluded that the videos of the attack were pre-staged or fabricated in order to justify a westernized incursion of Syria. This finding comes as no surprise to most as Intellihub.com journalist JG Vibes reported earlier this month, “Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention.”[1] 

While some see the mainline press for exactly what it is now, some are unaware of the power of propaganda. Although many felt leery about the media rhetoric surrounding the Syrian gas attacks, the elder nun managed to put in some hard research. According to Ben Hubbard with the NYTimes.com, “After the chemical attacks last month, she said, she locked herself in a hotel room in Geneva and pored over videos of the dead on her computer, sleeping only in short spurts and subsisting on water. “It was like a descent into hell,” she recalled. She said she had submitted her findings to foreign diplomats and officials with the United Nations Human Rights Council in a50-page report that pointed out what she considered inconsistencies in the videos, and asked why there were few images of women and burials. Mr. Lavrov cited her a few days later.

Her work has also won her acclaim with Mr. Assad’s supporters. Many of them are in Syria’s Christian minority, which makes up 10 percent of the population and has mostly stayed out of the war. Many fear that a victory by the predominately Sunni opposition would leave them with no place in the country, and have cast their lot with Mr. Assad.”[2]

Although the nun has no former military training, people across the world are sharing the same viewpoint on the situation, including the Russian government.

How Shlomo Sand Ceased to be a Jew – or Did He?

NOVANEWS

By Gilad Atzmon

Sand’s latest book, How I Ceased To Be A Jew, (translated from Hebrew) is a tragic testimony made by a morally awakened Israeli Jew who comes to realise that his spiritual, cultural and political existence is contaminated with Judeo-centric exclusivism and is fuelled by ethno-centric racism. Shlomo Sand decides to stop being a Jew – but has he succeeded?

Sand, as we all know, is a wonderful writer; witty, innovative, poetic and fluent, his voice is personal, at times funny, occasionally sarcastic and always genuinely pessimistic.

Sand’s writing is scholarly, deep, reflective and imaginative; however, his scholarship is pretty much limited to French liberal thinking and early post-modernist theory. The outcome is disappointing at times. How I Ceased To Be A Jew is a ‘politically correct’ text, saturated with endless caveats inserted to disassociate the author from any possible affiliation with anyone who may be viewed as an opponent of Jewish power, critical of Jewish identity politics or a challenger of the mainstream historicity of the Holocaust.

“I don’t write for anti-Semites, I regard them as totally ignorant or people who suffer from an incurable disease,” (p. 21) writes the author who claims to be humanist, universalist and far removed from Jewish exclusivism.* It all sounds very Jewish to me. When it comes to the Holocaust, Sand uses the same tactic and somehow manages to lose all wit and scholarly fashion. The Nazis are “beasts”, their rise to power metaphorically described as a “beast awakening from its lair.” I would expect a leading historian and ex-Jew to have moved on beyond these kinds of banal clichés.

Sand writes about identity politics and is certainly sensitive to the complexities of this subject. He argues forcefully that nationalism is an ‘invention’, yet, for some reason he attributes some forensic qualities to identity and the politics involved. Perhaps Sand fails to realise that identity politics is actually a form of identification – it is there to replace authenticity. For example, Zionism was born as an attempt to replace Judaic authentic orientation with an imaginary sense of national belonging – Israeli identity is a collection of signifiers set to make the Jew believe that he or she has a past, present and future. Identity is basically a set of symbolic identifiers that evoke a sense of collectivism. If you pierce your right ear, you become a club member, if you sport a kaffiyeh you become a solidarity activist, if you manage to utter a few Israeli sound-bites you may become a Zionist. All these identities lack any authentic depth.

Little Britain, a BBC comedy show, provides us with an invaluable insight into this. Daffyd Thomas (The Only Gay in the Village) exhibits a wide range of gay symbolic identifiers without ever once being engaged in a single homosexual intercourse. So Daffyd, while identifying as gay – politically, socially and culturally – saves himself of the elementary authentic experience as a homosexual.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrlzaBNgz-M

Sand understands that Jewish identity politics is hollow, but he may fail to grasp that all identity politics are hollow. On the contrary, nationalism, which he clearly despises — the bond with one’s soil, heritage, culture, language, landscape, poetry is actually a cathartic experience. Though nationalism may well be an invention as Sand and others insist, it is still an intrinsically authentic fulfilling experience. As we all know, patriotic national feelings are often suicidal – and there’s a reason for this – because just sometimes it manages to integrate man, soil and sacrifice into a state of spiritual unification.

On a lighter note, reading Sand’s poetic writing in Hebrew is for me, an ex-Jew and ex-Israeli, a truly authentic experience that brings me closer to my roots, my forgotten homeland and its fading landscape, my mother tongue or shall I simply say my Being. The medium that connect me to Sand’s prose is not ‘identity’ or politics but rather the Israeliness, that concrete nationalist discourse that matured into Hebraic poetry, patriotism, ideology, jargon, a dream and a tragedy to follow. Somehow I believe that Sand himself understands this point as he refers to those exact kind of feelings in the end of the book. I also believe that Sand’s pessimistic inclination is rooted in his realisation of himself being robbed of that Israeliness which was once to him a home.

Sand realises that the Zionist journey has come to an end and that ‘Israeli secularism’ is doomed. From an ethical and universal perspective Israel is at a dead end. Yet, he still fails to grasp that Israel is only part of the problem. More and more thinkers are now regarding Israel as a mere symptom of Jewish identity politics. More and more, commentators are becoming aware of a tribal ideological and spiritual continuum between Israel, Zionism, the so-called Jewish anti Zionists and the Left in general. It is no longer a secret that, like Zionists, Jewish ‘anti Zionists’ invest most of their political energy chasing the so-called ‘anti Semites’ – those who analyze Israeli and Zionist politics within the context of Jewish culture and philosophy.

Nevertheless, moral awakening is a slow journey rather than a swift gestalt switch and it is interesting how Sand’s encounters with Jewish anti-Zionists led him to adopt a similar criticism to the ones I express in The Wandering Who.

“There are a few who define themselves as secular Jews, they attempt to protest, either collectively or alone, against (Israeli) segregation and occupation. Rightly, they grasp that these policies threaten to bring along Judeo-phobia that may identify all Jews as a separate race and confuse between Jews and Zionists.” However, Sand continues, “their wish to be a part of a Jewish ethnic identity while not being able to fill it with positive cultural content, makes their tactic, in the best case, short lived that lacks weight and political future, and in the worse case, support indirectly the sense of (Judeo) tribalism.” (p. 145)

Sand clearly detects here an element of intellectual dishonesty inherent to the Jewish ‘Left’ in general and anti-Zionists in particular. He continues, “if those who consider themselves Jewish anti Zionists, in spite of the fact that they’ve never been in Israel, are unfamiliar with the (Hebrew) language and foreign to the (Israeli) culture, insist upon the right to criticise Israel, shouldn’t the pro-Zionists enjoy a (similar) unique privilege in determining the future of Israel?” (p. 146). Sand is obviously correct here, yet his point could be pushed even further: if the Jewish anti-Zionists enjoy a privilege due to their ‘unique’ ethnic origin, they actually affirm that Israel is the Jewish State and in fact their own very State. When a bunch of righteous Jews criticise the Jewish State ‘as Jews’ and in the name of their Jewishness, they paradoxically assert that Israel is indeed the Jewish State while simultaneously asserting their own choseness and privilege as Jews.

It is unsurprising that Sand is impressed with the contribution of Jewish progressive and radical thinkers. He presents a list of Jewish thinkers who “made an effort to drift away from (Jewish) egocentric ethical legacy in an attempt to adopt a universal morality” (p. 114). Sand mentions names such as Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Rosa Luxemburg, Lion Blum, Noam Chomsky and a few others. “As distant these people and others were from religious heritage, as close was their affinity to humanist perception and the strong will to change the living conditions of all people rather than their own.” (p. 115).

Unlike Sand, I am less convinced of the pure universalist motivation behind these progressive Tikkun Olam (fixing the world) heroes. Unlike Sand, I am convinced that the ‘progressive’ is but a secular extension of Jewish tribal ‘chosesness’. After all, if you are a ‘progressive’, someone else must be a ‘reactionary’. In other words, progressiveness is in itself a non-universal intolerant discourse.

Drifting away from Jewishness towards true and genuine universalism can be realised as the emergence of a unique critical sensitivity towards every possible aspect of Jewish tribal operation. Such an act involves a certain amount of self-loathing rather than merely ‘despising’ the ‘Jews around you’. Sand is not there yet. Instead of hating himself, he actually perfects his argument against his Jewish neighbours. In practice, he is still engaged in an internal tribal debate.

Jewish identity politics is an emerging critical topic and I take some credit for such a development. Two years ago, my The Wandering Who was published, which opened a Pandora box. I unleashed a critical assault on identity politics in general and also exposed the deceitful nature that is intrinsic to Jewish-Left thinking. Following the publication of the book, all hell broke loose, Zionists, together with their Jewish anti-Zionist siblings joined forces in a desperate attempt to stop the book and to censor my thoughts — but they failed — the book became a best seller, translated into many languages and endorsed by some of the most important humanists and academics around. Most importantly, it made Jews and their politics (not just Israel or Zionism) subject to intellectual and philosophical scrutiny.

A few months ago, Judith Butler attempted to rescue Jewish humanism and progressive identity. But her text, Parting Ways – Jewishness and the Critique of Zionism, was pretty problematic and intellectually dishonest. Consequently it received no serious attention. If anything, it conveys a clear lack of humanist as well universalist thinking at the heart of the Jewish Left discourse. Sand’s new book is another attempt to deal with the topic, but unlike Butler, Sand deserves our full attention. Sand is a man in transition (a quality I myself modestly share with him). Sand is honest, a superb writer, closely familiar with Jewish historicity and, though he may be slightly mistaken on some issues, his text provides us with a unique glimpse into the authentic journey of a pessimistic yet poetic Jewish soul in search of meaning.

*Exclusivism, intolerance, negative dialectic, righteousness, tribal inclination etc’. This topic is central to my new book. I will elaborate in depth in the near future.

Rwanda’s Kagame cozies up to extremist I$raHell expansionists

NOVANEWS
By: Wayne Madsen
Rwanda’s dictator Paul Kagame, who came to power after ordering a 1994 aerial assassination of the Hutu Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi, an event that triggered off a massacre of ethnic Tutsis and a holocaust of 5 million people in the neighboring Congo (Kinshasa), has warmed up to a group of extremists who favor I$raHelli expansionism.

While Kagame has always been close to I$raHell and its main American supporters, including National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Kagame’s decision to attend a seminar on genocide sponsored by the Jewish Values Network and its leader Orthodox Jewish Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, has raised eyebrows among the central African diaspora community in the United States and other countries. Boteach is an unsuccessful Republican congressional candidate from New Jersey and is close to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Boteach has also sharply criticized America’s support for a two-state solution in the Middle East.

The press release announcing the seminar states, “In the wake of the recent gas attack in Syria, a  panel discussion relating to the upcoming 20th Anniversary of the Rwandan genocide will be moderated by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, founder, This World: The Jewish Values Network; and will include President of Rwanda Paul Kagame.”

Joining Kagame and Boteach center stage at Manhattan’s Cooper Union on September 29 will be right-wing GOP financier and casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, Wall Street hedge fund tycoon Michael Steinhardt, who describes himself as an atheist but views I$raHell is his “substitute for religion,” and Elie Wiesel, who is ubiquitously present at such events.
