Peace Trains’ Jews Against Israel

Karl Marx died long before the State of Israel was created. But what made the founder of Communism an anti-Zionist before Zionism was his opposition to the very idea of a Jewish identity. The explanation can be found in his writings. In the second of his two early essays, together known by the title “On the Jewish Question,” Marx made many antisemitic assertions, such as: “Money is the jealous god of Israel, beside which no other god may exist.” “In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.”

If one believes that mankind has to be emancipated (read it: liberated) from Judaism, one then insists that Jews be powerless and assimilated. That’s why the new Jewish Marxists have turned anti-Zionism into one of their very highest priorities.

From the 1970s, Israel’s universities and Western intellectual circles had become home to a new generation of Jewish intellectuals who demonize and boycott Israel, and ultimately undermine the survival of the Jewish people after the Holocaust.

More than 90% of the allegations of “Israeli war crimes” cited in the shameful Goldstone Report were provided by 16 NGOs who received close to $8 million from the New Israel Fund, an organization headed by former Meretz MK and neo-Marxist Professor Naomi Chazan.

The list of “deranged Jew-haters which, if listened to, will do nothing other than pave the way to the next calamity” (as the brave Caroline Glick once called them), is long and very rich. Steve Plaut has drawn up a thorough list of them for the Middle East Quarterly and in his Freedom Center pamphlet, Jewish Enablers of the War Against Israel.

Tel Aviv University students and professors recently commemorated the “Nakba,” the “catastrophe,” as the Arabs call the date of the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. Ayal Nir, a lecturer at Ben-Gurion University, in his Facebook page, called to “break the necks of right-wing activists.” Israeli Professor Shlomo Sand achieved celebrity status in Europe by publishing a book denying the existence of the Jewish people, while Professor Oren Yiftachel called Israel “a white… pure settlement colonial society.” Larry Derfner, a former senior staff writer for The Jerusalem Post, publicly stated that the killing of Israeli citizens was a justifiable weapon for Palestinians in order to overcome the “occupation.”

At the Ben-Gurion University, Neve Gordon accused the IDF of being “war criminals” and promoted the boycott of Israel in a Los Angeles Times editorial.
Two days after two Jewish boys were murdered near their homes in Tekoa, Professor Ze’ev Sternhell published an article entitled “Against the lunatic government,” in which he wrote: “If the Palestinians had more sense they would direct their struggle against the settlements. They would also avoid placing explosive charges on the western side of the green line.” In other words, Sternhell, one of the most famous symbols of the defeatism of the lunatic Israeli Left, permits bombs to be exploded against Jews on the eastern side.

The new Hebrew publication “Tachlit Re’uya” by Ruti Eisikowitch sheds light on this “de-humanization of the settlers” committed by Israeli figures. Moshe Zimmerman of Hebrew University said he regards Jewish children in Hebron as Hitlerjugend. After Arabs sadistically bashed the skulls of two “settler kids” in the Judean desert, Israeli psychiatrist Ruchama Marton declared that “the settlers raise little monsters.” Anat Matar of Tel Aviv University openly supported boycotts of her own university, while University of Haifa professor Ilan Pappe accused the Jewish State of “ethnic cleansing.” Ran Hacohen from Tel Aviv University described “Israel as fulfilling Hitler’s dream” and referred to the assassination of Hamas leader Ahmed Yassin as “a milestone in the process of the barbarization of mankind.” Lev Grinberg of Ben-Gurion University accused the Israeli government, in a Belgian media, of “state terrorism.”

    K. Marx was a German chauvinist; he hated not only Jews, but Czechs, many other Slavic people

    He was a real piece of work!

    self-hating ultraleftist Jews slitting their own throats, doing the lying, radical, extremist antisemites' and the insane islamofacists' work for them!!…how absolutely vile, despicable and pathetic!! Truly unbelievable!

    Mr. Meotti missed out the psychotic Anglo-Israeli jazz saxophone player, Gilad Atzmon, who promotes every anti-Semitic and anti-Israel blood-libel going. As a jazz musician myself I had the misforture to meet and "debate" with the guy not long after he came to UK some twenty odd years ago. From that single encounter all those years ago I have always been convinced the main purpose of his anti-Semitism has been to endear himself to the Jew-haters and sell more records. But all these Jewish Jew-haters have one thing in common, they all hope the crocodile will eat them last, or in the metaphor of the article, they will be put in the last boxcar of the last train. Their self delusion is that they think the crocodile will be satiated, or the ovens will be coked up, before their turn comes – but history shows us that neither the crocodile nor the mass grave is never full.

    You left out Woody Allen and most of the Jews in Hollywood including Alice Walker loving Steven Speilberg.

  • Cynic

    Don’t forget that George Soros’ contribution to society includes helping confiscate Hangarian Jew’s property during the Second World war, which he admitted to in a TV interview and in which he declared that 1944 was one of the happiest years of his life; that if he had not done it sombody else would have come along and done it.

    So much for ethics and humanity is his patronage.

    This is not a Jew but an animal.

    • RonL

      "Nylas" Soros Gyorgy is not a Jew. He is a second generation apostate. Calling this member of the Arrow Cross a Jew is an insult to the actual Jews murdered by the Arrow Cross.

    BEWARE OF THE FAKE JEWS AMONG YOU! They are like the FAKE CHRISTIANS Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jackson, and Rev. Wright. Listen to their words closely and mostly, who they associate with and the groups that they support!

    REAL JEWS WHO STAND BY ISRAEL NO MATTER WHAT, just like the Blacks who stand by Obama no matter what, NEED TO STAND UP AND SPEAK UP FOR ISRAEL AND TO STOP FUNDING DEMOCRATS who have been infiltrated with Communists/Marxists/Socialists/Progressives/Anti-Semites and will say and do anything to aid in the DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL and at the same time aid in FLOTILLAS for Hamas and supporting Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, and now the Muslim Brotherhood, ALL OBAMA'S FRIENDS!

    I read the article more than once, and it still seems that the new bully on the block was left out. Peter Beinart ( "The Crisis of Zionism" ), the most recent highly publicized defamer of Israel , has just now spoken , by invitation, of course, at the Peres President Conference in Israel. I also didn't see Judge Goldstone mentioned, perhaps because he ultimately acknowledged his biased report.

  • Ghostwriter

    These particular people hope that Jew haters like Schlomotion will actually care about them if they indulge their favorite anti-semitic stereotypes. Sadly,it won't work. They still hate Jews and don't really care what happens to them,just so long as they die. That's what the anti-semites want. Dead Jews.

  • rulieg

    you had me until you mentioned Jonathan Pollard. as much as I love Israel, I love my own country more, and he spied on it. so he's not a hero to me.

    but let's leave that aside. the rest of this article made me so sad. what's wrong with these people? we used to joke about "self-hating Jews," but these guys have really taken it to another level. I know of no other group of people with such a low opinion of themselves–if that's what it is. I really don't get it, and I was raised Jewish.

  • Anamah

    They feel safer hating what they fail to be. They are perverted sick obsessive compulsive people, taking distance from what they are afraid of and fail to achieve in their imagination. Bag of garbage… as we can call that..

  • Schlomotion

    Did Marx "make antisemitic assertions" as The Plagiarist asks, or did Marx express the personal sense of disgust for Jewishness that he fostered firsthand in a Jewish family and community? I think the biggest gorilla in the room is that all of this anti-Marxism spewing from the fangs of the Likudnik right on Frontpage originates in the schism within the Jewish community in the first place. All of this "leftism" and "Marxism" is something that Eastern European Jews brought into the US in the 1880s and wafted around using Yiddish newspapers. FPM is simply tarring anybody against Israel with the broad brush of hatred that they use for their own more impoverished political immigrant fanatics. The anti-Jewish racial slurs (like the K-word) used against them were even coined by their more conservative, more assimilationist forebears who could sign their names with more than a circle. Given his origins and the origins of his political media history, Meotti should probably not take on the issue of Marx.

    The Democrat, anti-Semitic,self-hating Jews can relocate the palistinian/gazans to Montana so they can rewrite that history. When Americans refuse to accept the palie/gazan false claims to land & rights, the palies can send missiles to the surrounding states, or strap bombs to their women & children to blow up innocent Americans. There are currently 56 countries with a muslim majority; the palies can live in any one of them & practice their worship of the pedophile, wife-beating, polygamist mohamad. BTW, there are 5000 convicted muslim terrorists in Israeli prisons, at a cost of $250,000 p/terrorist/year; I say free them all, put them on a boat in the sea, set them on a course toward America & let their brethren rescue them, or not; Israel doesn't need them. They can move to the U.S. next to Obama!

    What a load of old rubbish this is. It is merely a pamphlet for Zio-Nazis. Israel is at best an apartheid state that should not even exist. The whole idea of a Jewish State is entirely a racist concept. The problems of the Middle East should be solved the same as the problems of South Africa. Land should be returned to its legal owners and then there should be a vote for every adult. Jews, Muslims and Christians can then live as equals just like the population of South Africa.
    The alternative is to continue with the present Zio-Tyranny which is a product of colonialism and 20th century fascism.
