John Mearsheimer and Richard Falk Endorse a Blatantly Anti-Semitic Book


Pages: 1 2

Hard-core neo-Nazis, racists, anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers, on the other hand, have happily counted Atzmon as one of their own. David Duke, America’s premier white supremacist, has posted more than a dozen of Atzmon’s articles on his website over the past five years and recently praised Atzmon for “writ[ing] such fine articles exposing the evil of Zionism and Jewish supremacism.” Kevin MacDonald, a professor at Cal State Long Beach whose colleagues formally disassociated themselves from his “anti-Semitic and white ethnocentric views,” called Atzmon’s book “an invaluable account by someone who clearly understands the main symptoms of Jewish pathology.” Israel Shamir, a Holocaust denier (“We must deny the concept of Holocaust without doubt and hesitation”) who argues that Jews ritually murdered Christian children for their blood and that “The rule of the Elders of Zion is already upon us,” refers to Atzmon as a “good friend” and calls Atzmon one of “the shining stars of the battle” against “the Jewish alliance.”

But neither Atzmon’s well-established reputation for anti-Semitism nor the copious anti-Semitic filth that fills The Wandering Who? has deterred Professors John Mearsheimer and Richard Falk from actively endorsing Atzmon’s work. Mearsheimer, the Harrison Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, calls The Wandering Who? a “fascinating” book that “should be read widely by Jews and non-Jews alike.” Falk, Milibank Professor of International Law Emeritus at Princeton University and United Nations Special Rapporteur on “human rights in the Palestinian territories,” calls The Wandering Who? an “absorbing and moving” book that everyone who “care[s] about real peace” should “not only read, but reflect upon and discuss widely.” Falk’s endorsement appears prominently on the cover of Atzmon’s book. Mearsheimer’s endorsement is featured on its first page. These professors are not merely defending Atzmon’s right to publish such a book; they are endorsing its content and urging their colleagues, students, and others to read and “reflect upon” the views expressed by Atzmon. One wonders which portions of this bigoted screed Professors Mearsheimer and Falk believe their students and others “should” read and “discuss widely.”

Mearsheimer has defended his endorsement (on Stephen Walt’s blog) by questioning whether his critics have even read Atzmon’s book. Well, I’ve read every word of it, as well as many of Atzmon’s blogs. No one who has read this material could escape the conclusion—which Atzmon freely admits—that many of his “insights” are borrowed directly from classic anti-Semitic writings. Mearsheimer claims, however, that he has endorsed only Atzmon’s book and not his other writings. But the book itself is filled with crass neo-Nazi rants against the “Jew,” “World Jewry,” and “Jewish bankers.” He claims that “robbery and hatred is imbued in Jewish modern political ideology on both the left and the right” (123). And like other anti-Semites, Atzmon is obsessed in the book with Jewish names. It was Jews, such as Wolfowitz and Libby, who pushed the United States into war against Iraq in the “interests” of “their beloved Jewish state” (26). “How is it that America failed to restrain its Wolfowitzes?” Atzmon asks (27).

Likewise, according to Atzmon’s book, it was “Jewish bankers,” financiers, economists, writers, and politicians such as Greenspan, Levy, Aaronovitch, Saban, Friedman, Schiff, and Rothschild who have caused the economic and political problems of the world, ranging from the Bolshevik revolution to the wars of the 20th century to the current economic troubles (27,194). And like other classic anti-Semites, Atzmon doesn’t simply fault the individual Jews he names; he concocts a worldwide Jewish conspiracy motivated by a “ruthless Zio-driven” (27) “Jewish ideology” (69) that finds its source in “the lethal spirit” (122) of the Hebrew Bible. This sort of conspiratorial drivel is borrowed almost word for word from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion—the Czarist forgery that became a staple of Nazi propaganda.

A number of other prominent academics have defended Atzmon and his endorsers. Brian Leiter, the Llewellyn Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Chicago Law School, dismissed the reaction to the book and to Mearsheimer’s “straightforward” endorsement as “hysterical” and not “advanc[ing] honest intellectual discourse,” though he acknowledges not having read Atzmon’s book. On the basis of having perused one brief interview with Atzmon, Leiter is nonetheless prepared to defend him against charges that he is an anti-Semite or a Holocaust denier: “His positions [do not mark him] as an anti-Semite [but rather as] cosmopolitan. … He does not deny the Holocaust or the gas chambers… .” Leiter should read the book, especially pages 175-176, before leaping to Atzmon’s defense. There Atzmon reflects “that 65 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, we must be entitled to start asking questions. We should ask for historical evidence and arguments rather than follow a religious narrative that is sustained by political pressure and laws.”

James Petras, Bartle Professor of Sociology Emeritus at Binghamton University, called The Wandering Who? “a series of brilliant illuminations” and praised Atzmon’s “courage.” The list of academics who have endorsed Atzmon also includes William A. Cook, a professor of English at the University of La Verne in southern California; Makram Khoury-Machool, a lecturer at the University of Cambridge; and Oren Ben-Dor of the University of Southampton School of Law.

These endorsements represent a dangerous step toward legitimizing anti-Semitic rhetoric on university campuses. If respected professors endorse the views contained in Atzmon’s book as “brilliant,” “fascinating,” “absorbing,” and “moving,” these views—which include Jewish domination of the world, doubting the Holocaust, blaming “the Jews” for being so hated, and attributing the current economic troubles to a “Zio-punch”—risk becoming acceptable among their students. These endorsements of Atzmon’s book are the best evidence yet that academic discourse is beginning to cross a red line, and that the crossing of this line must be exposed, rebutted, and rejected in the marketplace of ideas and in the academy. (Another evidence of this academic trend in Europe appeared recently on Atzmon’s website, where he brags that he has been invited to “give a talk on ethics at the Trondheim University” in Norway. This is the same university whose faculty refused to invite me to speak about the Arab-Israel conflict.)

Accordingly, I hereby challenge Professors Mearsheimer and Falk to a public debate about why they have endorsed and said such positive things about so hateful and anti-Semitic a book by so bigoted and dishonest a writer.

    We can only acknowledge the fact that being jewish in this world is so difficult, all consuming and traumatizing – especially for jews living outside the USA – that for some individuals sooner or later madness sets in. Such tormented souls conclude that the fantastic accusations of the enemy must be true; that all that hatred and persecution simply cannot be groundless, or the world would be indecipherable and wrong
    So some jews snap – the miracle is they snap so gently. Usually they’ll just write another book; hardly ever do they go up in flames and take their enemies with them.
    Has ever a good and wise people been so provoked?
    Humanly speaking they would be well excused to do what they are being accused of, and worse!

  • PatriotX

    So, because the Jewish people have been so successful and have contributed so much to the world, they must be evil? It must be a conspiracy for world conquest? LOL!!!!!! You can’t be serious. Well, leave it to liberal-progressives to be everything they accuse everyone else of being and twenty times worse. I guess their theme would be “do not contribute anything and remain average, generic and disgruntled to get along”.

    Yea, but we just love CAIR, the Palestinians and other Muslims, who have given so much to humanity with jihad, rape, terrorism and shariah, don’t we? Why, could you imagine a world without HAMAS, AL QA’IDA, HEZBOLLAH, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD or leaders like Louis Farrahitler.

    I honestly think the world has seriously lost it’s mind.

  • Marc R

    Atzmon admits to being a self-hating Jew and his neurosis is eating him up. I hope we are smart enough NOT to buy his book. For him to make money on this trash and on his self flagilation would be obscene. He deserves to be put out of his misery.

  • Daniel Fagan

    Jews are the canary in the mine, once they are singled out for "special consideration" disaster is soon to follow for all others. Look at the USSR, the Middle East, Fascist Italy, Germany under Hitler, Spain in the 15th century, France through out it's slimy history all have a common thread; a need to persecute a group of people who were better educated, more productive and for the most part, better behaved than their neighbors. Envy and covertness, along with a need for a scape goat to absolve themselves of their own failure has more to do with the hatred of the Jew than any thing they actually did.

  • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

    Finally Jews have produced their own Marcus Garvey who can liberate them out of being passive aggressives why cry out in pain as they punch other people in the head. The CHUTZPAH of Alan Dershowitz is without limit. Look at him saying who may or may not write a book, who may or may not review it, and who may or may not like it. That IS comparable to Nazism. Alan, you were caught on video trying to drag J Street behind the wall of silence and bring them into the monopoly of The Lobby. You were recorded doing it. I see you doing it.

    • kasandra

      Tell me where in his excellent column did Mr. Dershowitz claim the right to determine who may or may not write a book? It's not there. You are delusional. Also, what he points out is not that Mearsheimer and Faulk reviewed the book but that the endorsed it. Understand the difference? Now I know why no one bothers to reply to you anymore.

      Flipside, you have finally convinced me you have a reading comprehension disorder. Kasandra is correct, you are delusional.

      • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

        Right. That’s why Dershowitz has paroxysms every time a well written book comes out calling the Zionist spade a Zionist spade. That’s why he lies and claims books and authors have been discredited, and that’s why he barnstorms against any author, whether he has a rebuttal or not.

        • kasandra

          You can engage in ad hominem attacks against Dershowitz, whose intelligence – and writing ability – you can only dream of having, all you want. That doesn't change the fact that he didn't say anything that you accused him of saying. Period.

    Seventy per cent of lsraelis consider themselves socialists or communists. Eighty per cent of the drivers of the Russian revolution were Jewish, including the butcher Stalin.
    l am happy to align myself with conservative freedom lauding Jews but l resent the influence of the many Jewish socialist members of the ruling elites. Every Western country is now socialist and many many leftist Jews have been instrumental in bringing about this very sad state of affairs. As for lraq we shouldnt have gone in there nor should we be in Afghanistan – these muslim failed states arent worth the death of one Allied serviceman or woman – and too many Allied soldiers have died in those hellholes – and for nothing. l'll fight alongside decent non socialist Jews – l'll fight to defend lsrael but keep those socialist Jews far away from me

      Stalin was NOT Jewish. He PURGED the Jews, you moonbat.
      Where do you get this crap?
      Stalin was CATHOLIC.

      as for Iraq, Israel WARNED America in 2003 that Iraq was NOT a threat.

      The head of the Israeli army has warned of an "earthquake, which will reshape" the Middle East if America goes to war with Iraq.
      Lieutenant-General Moshe Yaalon told an Israeli newspaper that while he expected America to launch a strike, he was more concerned about attacks by Palestinian militants than any danger posed to Israel by Iraq.

      Hmmmmm… I thoughtn Stalin quit a Russian Orthodox seminary where he was studying for the priesthood when he joined the Bolshevics.

      You HUGELY overstate the number of self-identified socialists in Israel.

      That being said, Jews are a bit overrepresented within Leftist ranks. It seems instead of becoming out-and-out atheists, many jews become Leftists after losing their faith.

    • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

      You really shouldn’t throw around the word “degenerate anti-Semite.” Judaism and Zionism are hardly self-sufficient, glorious, first tier philosophies. They are both “Woe is we” weltanshauungs. The liturgical music is bad. The political stance is passive aggressive. The basis is theistic and racial. That’s all pretty weak mud to drive an existential guidepost into.

    Jew$ are 2% OF THE US POPULATION but control ALL KEY AREAS of US politics/media/banking

    This must be racist because blacks outnumber JEW$ by 7 to 1 but there are no black names in the above lists. There are also no Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Indian, or Arab names. Mmmmm…

    Could the above list of JEWI$H names have anything to do with the USA spending billions on supporting Israel and fighting in the Middle East?

    Could the above list of JEWI$H names have anything to do with the FED and US bankruptcy?

    I have given ENORMOUS proof, but people on this forum STILL CAN’T SEE who is running America.

    America is ANTI-WHITE, NOT ANTI-SEMETIC.

    Alan Dershowitz is slandering both Gilad Atzmon and his book.

    Notice how Dershowitz has made this about blurbs on a book by prominent people (and there are many others with such authority that endorsed the book). Notice how he asked to debate Falk or Mearsheimer but NOT Gilad Atzmon. Why is that? Is it because the contents of the book might actually get discussed and debated, considered and weighed: Ideas worth discussing and debating.

    At any rate, Atzmon provides a point by point response to Dershowitz. Give that a read but by all means read the book as well.

    Dershowitz’ Lies and Glitches by Gilad Atzmon http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/dershowitz-lies-a

    By this point, when Dershowitz condemns something, one ought to be very skeptical. Read the book and make up your own mind. Maybe Mearsheimer, Falk and numerous other respected people support the book for good reasons.

    Maybe the panel of Jews and non-Jews discussing the book at its book opening thought it worthy for a reason also.

    Didn't Alan Dershowitz defend O.J. Simpson for the publicity and filthy lucre? It seems like he's the last guy in the world who should be sitting in judgement on anyone. Besides, Tom Friedman validated Mearsheimer and Walt's thesis the other day. There IS an Israel Lobby, and it's corrupting and endangering America. Dershowitz is all wet,
