What Left-Wing Jewish Supporters of Muslim Supremacism Refuse to Hear


A common misconception popularized by appeasers and bunk historians is that Jews were treated well in the Muslim world until Zionism came up and ruined everything.

Let’s step back now some two-hundred years ago to Algeria in the year 1818. Theodor Herzl would be born 42 years later. Israel has been a dead land for over a thousand years. There were no social or political grievances.

Jews had received equal rights in France, which would later colonize Algeria, 27 years ago, in 1791. And Algerian Jews received equal rights only under French rule.

The unhappy sons of Israel, so badly treated in other countries, can expect little indulgence from the barbarians ; consequently there is no species of outrage or vexation to which they are not exposed.

They cannot ride on horseback, but are obliged to go on mules and asses ; the first being too noble an animal for them. When passing a mosque, they are obliged to go bare-footed.

They dare not approach a well or fountain, if there be a Moor drinking there ; or sit down opposite a Mahometan. Their clothing Is obliged to be black ; which colour is held in contempt by the Moors.

The indolent Moor, with a pipe in his mouth and his legs crossed, calls any Jew who is passing, and makes him perform the offices of a servant.

Frequently beaten by their persecutors, if they lift a hand in their own defence, agreeable to the lex talionis of the Moors, it is taken off.

The Turks insist on borrowing money even by force ; and contrary to the European maxim, it is not he who forgets to pay, that is incarcerated, but the man who refuses to lend!

90 percent of the Islamic anger at Israel is the racial supremacism of people who believe that they have the right to rule over others because of some innate superiority.

Leftist Jews who would never consider being white supremacist, instead enlist in supporting Arab Supremacism and Islamic Supremacism and the longing of both to return to this state of affairs. The Jewish pro-Muslim camp is the equivalent of blacks for the restoration of the Confederacy.

The difference between white supremacists and Islamic supremacists is that while there is no chance of restoring slavery in America, in the Muslim world slavery still exists and Muslims still dream of returning to the way things were in 1818.

    What a dumb article. Greenfield here just used an oft quoted piece of propaganda to justify France's action. Algerian Jews were well integrated prior to France's invasion and its divide and conquer policy. The Cremieux treaty is what drove the final wedge – it granted Jews French citizenship but not muslims. Please understand history better before mouthing off inaccuracies.

    • PaulRevereNow

      And what about the Jewish financiers that helped William Eaton, the American consul in Tripoli, during the war with the Barbary pirates? (Not to mention the thousands of Jews who have suffered under so-called benevolent Muslim rule; in Spain, in Iraq, in North Africa, in 7th Century Arabia, and a myriad of other places) They suffered under the same insults and racial persecution that occurred in Algeria; and there was no divide and conquer invasion by anyone else. You should understand history better; in fact, you sound exactly like those who blame this video for the attacks on the American embassies.

        Perhaps if you find yourself in Paris you can check out an Exhibit on Algerian Jews and see for yourself the truth.

      Yes they were well integrated as a persecuted minority.

  • kyle bryan

    Just ask the Jews living in France or Israel of Morocca, Algerian or Tunisian origin and the tell the stories they got from their forthfathers. I talk to many while living in Paris and Brussels , they all miss where their fathers come from. I also meet some Israelis of Moroccan origin here in Florida, and they proud to say they are of Moroccan origin.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      That explains why there are so few Jews in Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia.

      • Kufar Dawg

        LOL. I'll bet the population of Jews in those countries is declining annually, if not monthly as well.

      "Just ask the Jews living in France or Israel of Morocca, Algerian or Tunisian origin and the tell the stories they got from their forthfathers."

      Why bother? I can just trust your words and your agenda and throw out all that I know about history for your claims about anecdotes.

      How many did you speak to? I'm sure your study has great importance in clearing up these questions about dhimmi status under Sharia. You're a true progressive.

      They probably saw you as someone they needed to bow and scrape to, to avoid getting firebombed any time soon. Not that your "study" would have any value anyway even if you looked like a yeti. Just asking victims about Islam makes them cringe in fear, knowing it will never be over as long as anyone believes the lies (of Islam).

    Actually Algeria was a haven for Jews and Moriscos who took refuge in Algeria by the hundreds of thousands after Philip expelled them from Spain in the 16th Century. Algeria took them in and they became fully Algerian before France came in and wreaked havoc and dividing – yes dividing – Jews and North Africans, favoring one over the other. In fact, Jews were very well integrated into Algerian society as Jewish communities had been there since before the Roman diaspora. Many Jews in Algeria were actually North Africans who converted to Islam prior to the Arab invasions. Algeria never comitted attricities against Jews unlike nearly all the Europeans and Russia. Did you know that the massive French Invasion of Algeria in 1830 happened as a result of the Dey of Algiers sticking up for a Jewish subject who had lent large sums to Paris and was not being paid back. Jews were not treated any worse in Algeria than anywhere else and were part and parcel of the North African story. Go to any village or city in Algeria and they will tell you how the Jewish kids used to play together with other Algerian kids, women met at the baths and looked after each other's kids and nursed them with their own breast milk, men played dominos. Of course you likely want to believe the propaganda that you are perpetuating about how Jews were terribly treated. That's no worse than the people going around saying how terrible the Jews are.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Stow the Algerian nationalist propaganda. Jews were never integrated into Algeria or any Muslim country.

    • Kufar Dawg

      How are Jews being treated in Algeria in the here and now Majid? As equals w/their muslime masters?

  • Majid Dzairi

    Mr. Greenfield,
    I invite you to speak to Algerian Jews – most of whom are in France. I can introduce you myself. I have Algerian Jewish friends in Algeria too. Ask them yourself. Algerians (Algerian Jews too btw) like most of the world don't agree with Israel's brutal policies and heavy hand in Palestine nor the constant anti-arab anti-muslim barrage spewed out constantly 24/7 by orgs like yours to undermine the Palestinian cause, but we are not racist nor are we anti-semites., nor do we espouse Islamic tyranny. We are a tolerant people. Embrace the love! Make peace with your neighbors instead. It's the best and smartest option. Calling pro-peace and humane Jews names is a bit rich don't you think.

      This is errant nonsense. Your lies are revealed by your reference to "Algerian Jewish friends in Algeria." BullS H it. Yes, tell me lies about the thriving Jewish community IN Algeria TODAY, you lying baS tard. Yes, there are graveyards all over Algeria that reflect the existence – once upon a time – of a Jewish community, but that community is GONE. Pr ICK.

      Here is a joke for you, a s Hole:

      Man gets out of the plane in Algiers, walks through the airport terminal to the street outside, goes to the taxi area, gets in a cab, says to the driver:

      "Take me to the Jewish neighborhood."

      Get it, anus face?

      The David Horowitz Freedom Center and Front Page Magazine respects everyone's rights regardless of characteristics. The Freedom Center is pro-freedom, pro-democracy, anti-totalitarian and anti-Islamist. The Freedom Center is not anti-Muslim or anti-Arab. Israel does not have "brutal policies". In fact, Israel mainly responds in self-defense against unprovoked Islamist attacks coming from totalitarian organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah. Also, Palestine is a geographical region, not a country or an ethnic people. Anyone living in the former Palestine Mandate (Israel, Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan) is a Palestinian, regardless of characteristics. The Israelis and Jordanians are Palestinians. Palestine is not even an Arabic name. Palestine is a Latin name meaning Philistines. The Philistines were Greek sailors who had red hair (the Philistines were not Arabs). Israel is a tolerant, democratic country. Arabs living in Israel have more rights and liberties as Israeli citizens than citizens of other countries in the Middle East. If there is any regime in the Middle East which is excessively brutal (and there are plenty of regimes like that), it is the government in Sudan, which is a racist, sexist, Islamist regime that behaves worse than what South Africa was during the apartheid era. Yet, there is no BDS campaign movement aimed against the regime in Sudan. Now, that's a double standard.

    Did it ever occur to you the implied threat behind asking such questions? The rules of engagement were established by Mohammed. Sharia law threatens anyone within reach of a believing Muslim. You merely helped them relive their dhimmi experience. Just like Obama kisses your buttocks, so must these Jews with even less means to protect themselves.

    "but we are not racist nor are we anti-semites., nor do we espouse Islamic tyranny. We are a tolerant people. Embrace the love!"

    Then we aren't talking about you. Love does not use lies to spread it's benefits. Why lie about Islamic supremacy and Islamic colonialism? Defending Palestinians is a direct act of hate unless you've been completely isolated and brainwashed by haters yourself. In the end, hate is as hate does. Islam breeds hate through lies since its inception. The rest is history that is consistent through this day. If you reject that truly, then good for you. Now learn the salient facts of Islam through history.

    Face it, if you truly have love in your heart.

    Left-wing Jews – today, in 2012 – have lost their minds. Period. They are lost to our people.

  • shayne

    Truth is every race have hardships.Were all human no matter what color or race all go through trials,temptations, and everything else.

  • Kris Krtistian

    The truth is that Jews have suffered terribly under Islamic rule.
    Jews as well as Christians are second class citizens. That is why 850000 Jews fled Arab/Muslim countries.
    Jews were horribly persecuted.
    They had to leave businesses, homes etc with virtually the shirts ion their backs.
    The Muslims are the biggest racists in the world, and with their powerful propaganda, have convinced the world that the Jew are decendants of apes and monkeys That Jews are evil
    In Israel, all Jews, |Christians and Muslims are treated equally. Full religious and political rights
    Muslims are well employed. Women have no fear if they are raped, that they would be stoned to death. The law protects those women
    Visit a shopping centre, restaurant, sit in a bus, ride the light rail system in |Jerusalem, and you will see Jews and |Arabs sitting side by side
    No Israeli may tell a Muslim,that he will not get the job offered. This will lead to prosecution.
    Abbas of the PA and Jordan have a law that no Jew mill be able to own property in their areas, and anybody who sells land to a Jew will face execution. So why is Israel branded as the baddies?
