Israel is not a normal state. Here’s why.

I am a person of the left and have been ever since I was a girl and Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers or maybe it began when the Rosenbergs were executed and I knew a great lynching had occurred or maybe it was the photos of Auschwitz that I saw in Life magazine that made it clear I was one of those inside the fence not those waving at passing trains. That is why today the phrase “Zionism is Racism” sends shivers down my spine and sets my teeth to grinding.

Zionism is not about race. It is a nationalism. It makes a claim for the Jewish people that they are a folk like other folk and entitled to a land of their own just like the French have France and the English have England and the Bulgarians have Bulgaria. Nations have histories and the Jews have a history, long and eventful, rich in creative moments, overflowing with sorrowful memories, complete with documents, music, stories, language and also religion, and a religious memory of temples bygone and exiles endured and architecture described and columns buried in the soil and a millennium dream of return.

This dream of return, this next year in Jerusalem, existed long before the Holocaust. It existed before Herzl and the Zionists of the century before last had ever taken their first breath. It is a dream sunk deep into the Seder ritual, “Next Year in Jerusalem.” This vision of an end to exile kept the Jews together and brought them hope through the years spent in Babylon millennia ago when the texts that form our memory were edited and scrolls were connected and ordered into a lasting canon.

Sense was made of Jewish misfortune through a vivid if perhaps dubious belief in God’s punishment and eventual forgiveness. If the disasters that befell the Jews came about through Jewish defiance of God’s law then Jews could hope to make amends and keep their religion and their hope of redemption alive.

Even when Jews were defeated in battle we kept our God and held dear the promises he had made us of a land of our own: a land that he had granted to us in the time before time. Other defeated peoples gave up their gods who had performed badly in war and were now no more than broken stones strewn on the bloodied soil. In blaming ourselves for our misfortune Jews were able to hold on both to our God and to the hope of return to the land that had been promised. Our conception of the wages of communal sin saved our God from the dustbins of abandoned texts where specialists can still read today of Marduk and Sargon.

This hope of return to the land of Israel, which God had given to the Jewish people through Abraham, through David, for all time, this hope of return lasted through the exile of our people from England and France, the calamity of the Spanish exile and and of Portugal’s cruel dictates.

A wish for a land of one’s own for a nation of people with a story and a root, and a hope that carried on for more than a thousand years is unusual in human history. But if one thinks for a moment how the French would feel scattered to the four corners of the globe, Paris gone, the Seine named something else, the great cathedrals burned, the people now living along the Seine having descended from other folk who lived in other places, who did not know the French story, did not honor Charlemagne or Joan of Arc, or even speak French and instead spoke strange words in a language that Proust, or Flaubert, or Molière could not have deciphered, think how they might create a nationalism of their own that called for a return of Paris to the French and if that happened would they be racists or would they be nationalists, and why would they be entitled to a land of their own and the Jews denied?

And what if these French were denied citizen’s rights in some of the places they settled? What if they had been gassed or pushed into trenches where they died by the tens of thousands? What if the French had no army, no police of their own and were prey to the anti-French who roamed across all continents. What if the other countries denied the French access to law courts, to medical schools, to universities? What then? The French would start looking around for a land to call their own and they would call their promised land France and if others were living there they would still return if they could, because the French like any other national group deserves a land of their own, in a world of nation-states. And so do we Jews.

In today’s world to be called a racist is to be attacked with a nasty word that conveys immorality and inhumanity on the part of the racist. It hurts to be called a racist, especially if one is not. A Hungarian immigrant may enjoy a croissant but not feel a strong identity with French culture or history. What if such Hungarian immigrants were unexpectedly in the majority in what had been recognized as France? What if the French in Colombia or Nigeria wanted to return to France: Would anyone call them racists or would they be exiles, carrying with them Diderot, Molière, Madame Curie, Charcot, Camus, Stendahl, André Gide, Corneille, on their backs to lands where they had settled?

Despite United Nations resolutions to the contrary Jews are not racists to want a land of their own, a geography that contains their history, a place where their armies and their arms can protect them. They are human beings who claim the common endowment of what in this day and age passes for humanity.

Racists are despicable people who think they are superior to and more entitled than others of different groups, different nations, different skin color, different religious beliefs. America has a lot of racists living in its cities, small towns, its hills, its purple mountains majesty but slowly we are getting better at understanding that America is a place of many races and the mixture itself creates a nation that is beautiful in its variety and has for spacious skies that stretch from sea to sea.

Yes, Zionism can lead to excess of rage. It can inspire folks to deny others basic human dignity, the same way that anyone else’s nationalism can. It can turn ugly when the desire for “mine” becomes the desire to deny “yours.” But that is not the Zionism of the Jewish people. It was not Herzl’s Zionism. Our bid is just to be a nation like the other nations.

Well, not exactly like all the others. It was hoped that Israel would not enslave anyone. It was hoped that Israel would treat the strangers who lived among its people with justice and equality. It was expected Jews would not throw rocks at passing Arab cars and that we could make room for other dreams and other visions and other nations to settle near by or live in peace among us.

Zionism remembers the vulnerability of the Jews living without a state of their own and so it balances the needs of others to thrive in their own orchards and the needs of the Jewish community to become itself, at last, a nation without a foreign ruler, without a wicked king appointed by a distant empire, but a place where the Jewish story can be told by free men and women with confident voices in safe places where their Jewish children can learn and grow without fear. In other words a nation just like the French or the Spanish or the Poles who are not racist for waving the French, Spanish, or Polish flag or singing the anthem they learned at school.

If this return had happened in 1776 then the state of Israel could easily have acted in the way that America did—a way that came to be viewed, rightly or wrongly, as “normal.” It could have marched its Palestinians out beyond its borders and the crime of it, the pain of it, would have lost its immediacy, no cameras, no reporters on the ground. Native Americans were stripped of their land and their culture trampled and no one saw it on the news and by the time anyone could weep for them, the deed was done and could not be revoked. America had slaves for a hundred and fifty years and was indeed a racist country and remains so in some places. Think of the faces of the men and women who lined up to mock the entrance of a few Black children into a white school in Alabama. That is the face of racism.

If Israel was a normal country like Iraq or Syria the ultra-Orthodox would be at war with the citizens of Tel-Aviv who go to the movies on Shabbat. The followers of this rabbi or that would take to the hills with their guns. If Israel was a normal country like Mexico its citizens would be afraid of the police and the drug cartels would appoint the chief of police. If Israel were really normal the Ashkenazi Jews would arm themselves against the Sephardim and civil war would take the lives of Jews just as civil war decimated the population of young men in America as boys lay dead on battlefield after battlefield, leaving mothers to grieve and sweethearts to weep and children to grow up without fathers. That is our normal.

So, it might be not such a good idea to be a normal state. And while it might not be entirely fair to hold Israel to a higher standard, I do in fact expect that Jews will hold back the killing hand, the truly racist call, and that Zionism would be, could create a decent place, where a variety of religious approaches could co-exist and secular folk could walk about unmolested. It is a dream, but not an impossible one.

This vision of Israel (that is where as a child I thought my tree was growing) did not fully understand that Palestinian Arabs were or would become a people with a claim of their own to a national homeland. This conflict needs to be settled; both peoples need settled borders in which to build and flourish. But Zionism is not racist to speak for itself and the illogic, the unthinking hatred behind that slogan, makes me sick. It is a lie and a smear hiding behind a proclamation of seeming virtue. To be against racism is good but to see it where it is not, to use the word to attack Jews, is appalling.

Proxy war over France

Convoluted Gulf Research: the Next GCC Proxy War over France, Vive Le Roi……

“That Saudi Arabia has agreed to host a top Iranian official suggests that Iran is ready to offer concessions on at least one of the top issues of concern to the kingdom, including Syria, Lebanon and Iraq, said Mustafa Alani of the Dubai-based Gulf Research Center. “This does not come out of nowhere. There must be some Iranian concession,” he said. “The Iranian foreign minister is not coming just to kiss cheeks. The Saudis would make very sure they are not bluffing before issuing the invite.”………….” 

What convenient conclusion by this Gulf Research Center analyst. Amusing if convoluted analysis of the situation in the Middle East and the Gulf. I don’t see the logic of it, this talk of ‘concessions’. It is either self-serving or delusional or most likely both. The consensus now is that it is the Saudis whose policies have failed in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen. In Iraq and Lebanon the decks are stacked against them: there is no way the Saudis can win. Syria is ‘iffy’ in the long term, although the regime is winning for now. Yemen is a mess and will continue to be so for many years. Then there are the reports of American pressure to seek accommodation.

On the other hand, the Saudi policies have succeeded in other parts of the region. They now ‘own’ Egypt probably even more so than they did under Mubarak, and they occupy Bahrain, and their allies rule Pakistan (until the next military coup). Moreover, they now own half of Paris (France not Texas), while Qatar owns the other half. Which means that the Saudi and Qatari potentates will soon be fighting a proxy war over influence in France. The Saudis will try to get the French to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a ‘terrorist’ group. The Qataris will try to expose the Salafi networks that snuck in from North Africa. The French as usual will play both sides: they will sell more weapons to the Saudis and they will sell more bits of Paris and Nice to the Qataris. Life will go on.
Vive le roi………


Arabs in France Angry Their Women are Sexing with Blacks

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
March 30, 2014

Hip to be Ape: Arabs blame American race-mixing culture for their women fetishizing bestiality.

Arabians, like all other races, have a healthy disgust for the idea of their women copulating with Africans.  Presently, in multiculty France, where all are welcome to share in the welfare-joys brought to them by the labor of the French people, Kim Kardashian has inspired a trend of jungle love among the invading Arab slut brigade.

Vice reports:

Paris is burning, and it’s all Kim Kardashian’s fault. OK, that’s an overstatement, but the city’s suburbs have been torn apart lately because of Arab French girls who happen to date black guys and the Arab French bigots who slut-shame them for doing so.

Since we are dealing with teenagers, the full extent of the issue is displayed on social media: Scrolling through Facemook—a sort of Facebook within Facebook, with more than 70,000 members—I stumbled upon countless offensive posts by groups with names such as “Anti beurette à khel” (“No to Arab girls dating black guys”) and “Les beurettes utilisent l’Islam pour justifier leurs débauches” (Arab girls use Islam to justify their debauchery).

Clicking through the groups’ pages, I realized this has evolved into a sort of modern-day witch hunt: Girls’ photos, names, and even phone numbers are posted on the groups’ “Timelines,” often with humiliating captions. These girls are criticized for drifting away from Muslim traditions and for using something called the “Bilal excuse”—Bilal was the only black companion of the Prophet Muhammad.

This is the type of thing the Arabian boys are posting on Facebook:

Girl on the left: "Bilal was black, you racists." Girl on the right: "As long as he’s Muslim, we can suck his dick."

 "Arab girls think it’s OK to smoke hookah with black guys because Bilal was black."

 "Arab girls think it’s OK to smoke hookah with black guys because Bilal was black."

The article features an interview with a local invader who is against the racist oppression of the jungle lovers.  He says:

If an Arab girl walks with a black boy, they will be pointed at and called names. Some Arab teenage boys see this as a betrayal. A few years back, the problem was Arab girls who dated French boys; they were accused of doing that only to Westernize themselves. Now it’s even worse, though. As this phenomenon is growing, you get black guys fighting back and going around saying stuff like ”We’ll make all your sisters pregnant, and tomorrow Arab boys won’t exist any more.” You can read this all over internet.

Because of these Facebook groups. At the beginning it was a bunch of angry, misinformed kids or insane people. But as time passes, they are joined by more and more people, including girls who have a grudge against “these Arab girls who do not respect themselves and bring shame to the community.

The interviewee also says that many of the Arabs accuse the blacks of getting girls pregnant and leaving them.  This is clearly just racism, as I have never in my life heard of a black doing something like that.

Anyway, though I could in all honesty not care any less about the problems of Arab invaders in France, it is indeed interesting to see that they too care about protecting their women and genetic heritage from African infiltration.  In fact, it seems they care a lot more than our people do.

Islamophobic Attack On A Veiled Mother in Moselle, France

It’s just good old “muscular liberalism,” right?

Whatever it is, there is no doubt that the French government’s attitude towards Islam and its Muslim population has contributed to an environment where veiled women can and are attacked.

Islamophobic Attack On A Veiled Mother in Moselle

Collectif Contre L’Islamophobie En France (Google Translate)

The incident occurred in the evening of Tuesday, February 18 around 18:15.

The victim, a young mother with her toddler, was violently attacked while returning slowly towards his home after shopping.

The attacker suddenly stopped his vehicle before verbally take the young woman, whom he accuses of wear the full veil ”  The driver yelled at me: You have to go to Iraq eh […]! In France, we do not dress like that! “ […] “Go back to your country …”.

Very agitated, the individual is left to his vehicle, walked away, then eventually turn around to attack again to his victim and snatch her ​​veil him shouting “It is forbidden by law […] here, we respect women “ (assault a woman because of his religion and its origin is this definition of respect for women: ed.)

A man who attended the scene immediately intervened to assist the victim and stop aggression.

The victim is still very shocked and was very afraid for her child  : “I picked races downed and taken my stroller, which under the impact of physical aggression, had rolled to the curb … I ‘ve found wobbly against the wheel of a parked car. He could have something happen to my son … the stroller could be completely reversed. “

Our legal team are currently in contact with victims to encourage them to complain and bring him any psychological assistance necessary.

Comment: In principle, women have the right to wear what they want. However, there is an endless Hatfield vs. McCoy between Muslims and non-Muslims in attacking each other women for wearing the wrong clothes, as well as rumors that Muslims force captured women to walk around semi-nude. As Muslim countries have and want to have ICBMs, I think even Atheist women should have the right to wear burqas without being pressurized to adopt Islam in whole. What the heck, I think even Atheist men should have the right to wear burqas.
