The Phantom Establishment of the Jewish Anti-Israel Left

arleneAlan Alda’s wife signed a letter denouncing the newly elected left-wing mayor of New York for doing AIPAC’s bidding. The Sandinista supporter had been accused of many things, but being an Israeli stooge wasn’t one of them. Signing the letter, along with the spouse of that guy from MASH, were Martha Weinman Lear, the wife of the cousin of liberal producer Norman Lear,  Eve Ensler of the Vagina Monologues and diet guru Jane Hirschmann author of Overcoming Overeating who took a break from obsessing over food to sail on a Jihad cruise to Gaza.

Signing on to the attack on Bill de Blasio for being a dirty Zionist were such faded celebrities of the literary left as Erica Jong, who hasn’t written a single book that anyone can name in the forty years since Fear of Flying first came out and Gloria Steinem, who peaked around that same time.

These familiar names of the Manhattan cocktail party circuit who grind their teeth every time they hear Netanyahu’s name, give way to the professional activists, the board members of the toxic American Jewish World Service, the Nathan Cummings Foundation and Dorot, the Rabbis for Gaza and Rabbis for Obama and the men and women like Peter Beinart of Open Zion and Rebecca Vilkomerson of Jewish Voice for Peace who have built their lives around the war on Israel as much as any Islamic Jihadist tinkering with a Kassam rocket in Gaza.

The radical clergy sign on; Rachel Brown Cowan, a Unitarian who married a Jewish writer for the Village Voice, added “Rabbi” to her name and began attacking the Jewish State after her husband’s death, Rolando Matalon, who has yet to find a Latin American Marxist group he wouldn’t embrace and Sharon Kleinbaum, a lesbian supporter of the Fast for Gaza that aids and abets the not particularly pro-lesbian Hamas.

Reading these names feels like reviewing the membership of a small familiar club. Everyone knows everyone else and everyone in the club hates Israel.

Between Erica Jong and Alice Kessler-Harris (the biographer of Anti-Israel Communist playwright Lillian Hellman, whom Kessler described as having a “streak of Jewish anti-Semitism”) is Peter A. Joseph who pays for this whole dance, funding everything from Peter Beinart’s Open Zion to the Manhattan JCC whose anti-Israel turn has led to a pitched battle among members.

Peter A. Joseph revived the Israel Policy Forum, which had originally been folded into the Center for American Progress, and turned it into a machine for churning out anti-Israel letters. Before the IPF merged into CAP, it put out a letter urging the United States to work with Hamas. Afterward, its tactics have become slightly subtler, its letters appearing to be pro-Israel while advocating anti-Israel policies.

The Israel Policy Forum put out a letter in support of Obama’s nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense, despite his ties to the Iran Lobby, signed by Peter A. Joseph, hedge fund manager Neil Barsky, Marcia Riklis, the daughter of corporate raider Meshulam Riklis (not by his second wife Pia Zadora), Jack C. Bendheim, the president of a company that once dumped toxic waste in a Connecticut town, and Risa A. Levine, a real estate lawyer from New York.

Why was anyone supposed to listen to Pia Zadora’s stepdaughter and a guy who once made a documentary about Ed Koch when it came to nominating a Secretary of Defense? The same reason that Bill de Blasio was supposed to listen to Alan Alda’s wife and a diet guru who hates Israel.

Hating Israel has become a small petty club for the wealthy left. The Jewish Anti-Israel left likes to pretend that it’s a grassroots movement being squelched by the “Jewish establishment” when in reality it is an unelected establishment using its wealth and lingering fame to shout over the majority of American Jews who support Israel.

These fading Feminist writers, Wall Street millionaires trying to buy social relevance, hippie social scientists who hit it big with books about food, sex or childrearing, radical rabbis holding forth to congregations who believe in religion as little as their preachers, are a phantom establishment; community leaders without a community except their own mutual approbation.

Every few weeks the Israel Policy Forum churns out another letter headlined “Prominent Jews Urge Someone To Do Something” signed by Pia Zadora’s stepdaughter, a hedge funder, another hedge funder, the guy whose company left drums of toxic waste in Connecticut, the Rabbi who loves the Sandinistas even more than Bill de Blasio and a retired Democratic congressman who attends the same cocktail parties.

Some of these letters are anti-Israel. Others pretend to be pro-Israel. All the letters assert the importance of the signers, the self-proclaimed “100 Prominent Jews” or “150 Prominent Jews”.

These antics are not limited to the Israel Policy Forum or even the United States.

A year after British comedian Stephen Fry appeared on a genealogy show to trace his mother’s Jewish roots, he signed on to a letter by British Jews, a group that he had never considered himself a member of, declaring its “independence” from the British Jewish establishment. The list included the expected collection of fading feminist authors, Marxist playwrights, historians and philosophers, as well as radical sociologists, pop psychologists and professional activists.

The “coming out party” of Independent Jewish Voices consisted of Marxist Jews who were notorious for hating Israel, the UK, industry, facts, mirrors and human civilization announcing that loudly in a letter that was covered by their media friends.

There is a long history of such letters going back to the founding of Israel, the names of forgotten self-proclaimed leaders mixing with a few more notorious figures whose unfortunate legacy has survived into this time. None of these letters however have counted as much as a bullet in the rifle of an Israeli soldier standing watch in the night.

American Jews who worry over these letters from the phantom establishment of the cocktail party ought to look back and see how futile the rantings of I.F. Stone, New Dealer Joseph Proskauer, the rabid Elmer Berger and FDR speechwriter Samuel Rosenman proved to be.

Before J Street or the Israel Policy Forum, there was Jewish Alternatives to Zionism headed by “Rabbi” Elmer Berger who had claimed that the Communist revolution in the Soviet Union meant that Jews no longer needed “Palestine”.

Does anyone remember Lewis Affelder or Mr. and Mrs. Noel A. Buckner whose names appeared as sponsors on Jewish Alternatives to Zionism’s stationary? Their names are smeared ink on yellowed paper while children play in the streets of Jerusalem.

The phantom establishment is rootless; it has no links to a people or to a religion. Its aims are destructive and like all destructive forces, it carries its own futility with it.

American Jews should contend with them, but should not be too impressed by them. Their kind has been at it for generations and, despite all the venom and fury, the boycotts and screeds, have made less of an impression on Israel than a single Jewish family in the hills of Shomron.

The phantom establishment is money and words. There is no blood in its veins or heart in its chest. It does not go on the way that the Jewish people do because it is not of them, only against them.

When its anger is spent and its letters are signed, the children will play on in the hills and fields of Israel, neither knowing nor caring that there was once a Jane Hirschmann, a Mrs. Noel A. Buckner, a Rachel Brown Cowan or a Rebecca Vilkomerson that sought to do them harm.

    They are not part of my tribe.

    When anyone totally dedicates their life to the ideology of the left, there is nothing left for Judaism – or any other religion. Obama is their moshiach, the Democratic party their shul, and “Rules for Radicals” their Torah.

    Israel will certainly survive the lemmings of the left – including these individuals – as you mentioned. We need to remember that truth ultimately will prevail. Their cause is a lost cause.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Sort of like Islam is somehow a fanatical religion to 1.6 billion Muslim dupes, Marxism is the fanatical religion of Leftist dupes. However, look at history, both ideologies have caused nothing but torment and destruction. Misery loves company.

      • Bamaguje

        Are you sure there are up to 1.6 billion Muslims?
        Methinks Muslims inflate their actual numbers for propaganda purposes… supposedly the “fastest growing religion.”

        • BagLady

          From my experience, estimated figures are always produced by TheWest.

      • uptownsteve

        Methinks the Muslims who resided in Palestine for generations regard Judaism as a cause of torment and destruction for them. Ya think?

        • Habbgun

          Hey aren’t you the genius who lectures here about how the Democratic party is the best place for Jews? How come you sound like a typical Israel hater? Oh, that’s right you really don’t care either way. You’re just a party machine loving thief

          • uptownsteve

            Are we discussing American Jews or the State of Israel? You sound confused.

          • Habbgun

            Both dimwit. It would be like discussing Italians and Italians in America. There is a common culture and a common concern. The typical antisemite doesn’t go Jew in America, Jew in Europe or Jew in Israel. He goes Jew…..you are trying to make a cheap point…like a cheap party machine hack would make….at least you stay in practice.

          • uptownsteve

            What does your question have to do with the comment I made?

          • Habbgun

            Everything. We are talking about Jewish identity, Jewish nationhood, Israel and diaspora. We are talking about whether the legitimate views of the Jewish people will be respected or hijacked. We are talking about whether a political party becomes a force for representation or a force for graft (of course Democrats have already made that decision)

            You do realize Jews have lived in Israel and have never left. You do realize that under the Ottomans and under the Arab riots of the 1920′s and under plenty of other circumstances Jews suffered under the Moslem. You don’t care about that but then again what does all of this have to do with an Obamaphone? Can you download cool apps or is it just basic?

          • uptownsteve

            You do realize that the preponderance of the peoples who resided in what is now called “Israel” were Arabs who were either displaced or eliminated in order to make way for the UN (European) brokered “Jewish state” which was necessitated by the Holocaust of the early 1940s. BTW, the guys who were gassing Jews in Europe were white rightwingers. Just sayin.

          • Omar

            Wrong. The people who were gassing Jews in Europe were left-wingers who were allied with Islamists in the Middle East like so-called “Palestinian” figure Hajj Amin Al-Husseini, who was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Fact-check.

          • Omar

            You’re welcome. For quite a few years, I have been trying to tell people that Nazism was a radical left-wing ideology whose only primary difference from Communism was the issue of nationalism vs. internationalism. The problem is that the left in this country and around the world have distanced themselves from the Nazis’ atrocities by stating that the Nazis were right-wing, which was not true. But, everyone bought the left’s lie. Anyway, thanks for your support.

          • 1Indioviejo1

            National-SOCIALISM. Nazis.

            What part of Nationalist SOCIALISM do you not get uptownsteve?

            Oh, let me guess, you believe the lies the Left told after the War to distance themselves from the Nationalist SOCIALISTS they supported before the War ?

            Look at the diagram. Any ideology that promotes the State over the Individual is necessarily Left wing. The Nazis were Big State – which makes them Left wing.

            The only people who believe that the Nazis are right wing are Lefties who are in denial about the evils of socialism.

            No one was eliminated. The colonial Muslim majority chose to go to war rather than share the land.

            More Arab women are honor-murdered each year by their families than the entire general Arab population killed in the 1948 War of Independence by Israeli soldiers. Certainly less were raped by Jews than by their own relatives and neighbors.
            Just imagine: had they been killed their offspring wouldn’t have to suffer living in refugee camps, in Arab countries no less, to this day. Another reason to blame the Jews! (Sarc)

            No.. The five Arab armies tried to continue SOCIALIST SHlTlers holocaust – but failed because the Israels had the tools to defend themselves.

            Instead of parroting fascist socialist talking points, try educating yourself.

            Plus there was a population exchange – 700,000 “palestinians” left Israel, expecting the five Arab armies to slaughter Jews – but failed…

            And 800,000 Jews were kicked out Arab countries.

            It’s a wash.

            And if your so called “palestinians” should be compensated, so should the 800,000 Jews of Arabs lands (Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Egypt) be compensated.

          • uleaveuswithnoalternative

            No, Stevie, the Arabs now called “Palestinians” were not “displaced” nor were they “eliminated.” Months before the 1948 war in Israel began, the surrounding Arab nations bombarded Muslim Arabs living in Israel with radio & leaflet propaganda. These Arabs were told to leave Israel while the armies of Iraq, Transjordan, Egypt, Syria & Lebanon attacked the Jewish state, killed all of the Jews & confiscated all Jewish property & businesses. These Arabs were told that they could then come back to the land & enjoy the plunders of war.
            Some Arabs stayed in Israel, maintained their homes & businesses & these Arabs & their descendants remain in Israel today, thriving under Israeli rule. Unfortunately, for the gullible Arabs who fled Israel, they continue to languish in internment camps run by Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan & the U.N. For 66 years these Arab nations have denied their
            Arab brothers & sisters, citizenship, an education & the right to work.

          • BagLady

            I see your version of history is subjective and many historical events have been twisted in the telling to suit your point of view.

          • BagLady

            For 66 years these Arab nations have denied their
            Arab brothers & sisters, citizenship, an education & the right to work.

            Not quite true. The Palestinian refugee diaspora does have the right to work in most countries under the visa system. Not ideal, of course. One wrong move and they lose that right and become ‘stateless’.

            Surely you can empathise with them when they speak of the ‘right of return’?

            I can accept that this cannot form part of negotiations but, at the same time, I cannot accept Netanyahu’s drive to fill the place with Zionists who have no connection with Israel apart from religion. How can the Scottish woman who just happened to marry a Jew, convert and then divorce have more right to live in Jerusalem than my Palestinian friend with parents born and bred in Ramallah? It is thirty years since he saw them and they are in their 80′s. Even Kim Jong Un allows the occasional reunion.

            (wait for the shouting)

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Much like Ireland sought out Irish-Americans, including their non-Irish spouses, rather than the Portuguese.

            But it would be more accurate to say that most in the region had been stateless all along, the state being somewhat modern, with firm borders, flags and passports rising around people who had been part of the same family group.

            Finally, these issues in Israel would not have existed if the Arab side had accepted an accommodation in 1948 or at any time afterward. Without good citizenship and an end to violence, it becomes impossible to accept people into a country.

          • BagLady

            There are, however, other versions of these historical events.

          • BagLady

            I had a Scottish lady ‘friend’. She married a very nice Jewish man and converted to Judaism. They adopted 2 children and later divorced. I expect she is entitled to move to Israel with the two children with no questions asked.

            I’m afraid Netanyahu’s plan to over-run the place with white-European’Jews’ doesn’t sit well with me and looks like a slap in the face for all those stateless Palestinians struggling on one year work visas around the world.

          • Habbgun

            You are so damn ignorant. Israelis are most Sephardic. From Israel. From the arab nations. In fact the Yemeni Jews sing songs that are hits with the Arabs in Yemen although their fascist Jihad overlords hate that. This is not about white anything. Europe is white. Socialism is white. Climate change scams are white. Obama is in reality white. I do not hold being white as worthwhile though I am pale myself. I am horrified by the white leftist and what he wreaks upon the world.

            WRONG habbgun. Do not speak for all the Jews of America, Europe and the rest of the world where they happily reside. Not all feel their first allegiance is to Israel, regardless the pressure from the right that labels them ‘self-haters’ if they don’t follow the party line. Dastardly.

            It is you who seems to be confused. On the one hand you differentiate between Italian Italians and American Italians but then link them with a common culture and, at that point, totally lose me in your logic

          • Habbgun

            The Jews of America are Jews. The worst destruction to the world has been Europe and its philosophies. That Jews and others hold out. Those that Europe trod upon Jews and others hold onto the truths that have been established over thousands of years speaks to Jews and others now, in the past and in the future. Yes let’s continue to let Eurosocialism kill Russians, Ukrainians, Cambodians, Vietnamese, Venezuelans, Chinese, Africans, Cubans and on and on. For a people steeped in blood you sure talk big.

            Maybe because in your little Leftist enclave you don’t meet American Italians. If you did you would get it. You are a closed in Eurosupremacist. Please stop. You are poisoning the world.

          • Habbgun

            Honestly I don’t really believe that. The term white guilt is proggy code for America. If Europe gets back on top these people will be happy to destroy the very people they say they bleed for in the name of global socialism. They don’t care about the atrocities in China, Cambodia, North Korea, Rhodesia, Venezuela, Cuba and so on. In fact they cheer on those governments. They only bleed for palis because they hate the Jews worse. Of course the palis could die en masse under a communist government and they would only jump up and down and say the palis are ungrateful and really really happy.

        • ahad_ha_amoratsim

          They probably do, even the ones who resided there for a relatively short time. That’s because they view the existence of Jews, and particularly free Jews, as an affront, and because they are divorced from reality. If they were not divorced from reality, they would reflect that the secular Zionists who carried out the Jewish people’s self-determination movement and establish the modern State of Israel viewed Judaism as a relic of the past to be discarded as quickly and thoroughly as possible. And they would reflect that the cause of their torment (they have not been destroyed, except in your fantasies) is their determination to stamp out the existence of the Jewish state, instead of embracing and emulating the freedom and advances they could have by cooperating with it, and appreciating the longer life span, increased literacy and educational level, higher standard of living and greater freedom that they acquired when they came under the Zionists as compared to what they had under the Turks, Syrians or Jordanians.
          But keep up with the ‘Judaism oppresses Muslims’ lie; it’s such a standard part of the troll library.

Indeed, what is happening in Israel is nothing but a run of the mill old fashion jihad (holy war) waged by the so-called Palestinians on the behalf of the Islamic world in order to make Islam supreme in Israel, and as such it is no different from the many other jihads also being waged against various infidels around the world such as the Hindus in India, the Buddhists in Thailand, the Christians in too many places to name, the animists in Somalia, etc., etc., etc. ad nauseum, Only you are too mentally incompetent to know it.

          How many generations of Arabs lived in Palestine?

          Apart from the Bedouin most of the Arabs were imported by the Zionists as labor at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th Centuries. It’s right there in the names of the Arab familes, Al-Masri (“The Egyptian”) being very common.

          That’s why the Arabs go silent when you ask how where their grandfathers and great grandfathers came from. They came from what is now Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

          Hell, Yasser Arafat was born in CAIRO, EGYPT.

          You have fallen for the great Palestinian Lie. The “Palestinians” only took the name in 1967 on the advice of Soviet disinformation specialists. Before 1947 the word “Palestinian” was used *exclusively* to mean the Jewish inhabitants of the region, but this was abandoned and unused from 1947 when the name “Israeli” was adopted instead.

          Check the facts, since it sounds like you don’t know the history at all – and are just making falsehoods up:
          http://www.al-rassooli.com/palestine/slide-06.html
          http://www.al-rassooli.com/palestine/

          The Arabs only adopted the name “Palestinian” so they could conduct the genocide of Jews commanded by Islamic hadith Sahih Muslim 6985. Do you agree with this decetion? do you agree with the Islamic jihadi genocide against all Jews?

        • BagLady

          Pre 1950′s they didn’t think so. There is much photographic evidence that shows Israeli Muslims, Christians and Jews living in perfect harmony.

The Progressive religion demands fanatical support of women’s rights while aligning itself with the most hateful, misogynistic, female mutilating murderers in history (Islam), an obsession with removing guns from the hands of law abiding citizens while sending guns to Mexican drug cartels, it demands that its adherents support the legalization of drugs but “for our own good” requires that tobacco & sugar be made illegal, & of course the Progressive Religion demands total obedience & CONTROL, control over every facet of human existence & the right to declare as criminal anything or anyone opposing its tenets.

    Most Jews in the West all – especially the wackjob degenerate American and British ones such as those listed – share certain things: 1) They have never been to Israel ( maybe once on a ” fact finding tour for a nebulous think tank only open to the ultra rich and their sycophants ” 2) They cannot read Hebrew nor write their name in Hebrew even if you put a gun to their heads 3) They are of Ashkenazi descendance; i.e., pale skin, blue eyes and often especially in the Us have German names.

    They are ” ash can nazis” with German names and blue eyes who cannot read Hebrew and have no idea what their names even mean in German. Why listen to these “poseurs”?. Sadly they make a lot of noise and mean all of us ill well. I wish they and their children ( if they have any ) could spend six months in a Muslim country and North Korea, if they survive that long.

    • Drakken

      So what exactly do you call those surrounding countries? They are all Islamic, non democratic, muslim states, so why the issue with Israel being Jewish? Oh yes, let us not forget the only thriving Christian community in the ME is in Israel, now if Israel is so bad, how can this be?

      • BagLady

        It matters not your surrounding countries. If you are going to use comparison as your yardstick, then let’s put North Korea at one end and some Northern European country, say, Norway at the other. Where do you figure on the democratic scale… given that you would introduce the word ‘Jewish’ into your title?

  • DK

    This is interesting information, but not much new. It would be much more useful to publish some articles about people that support Israel and reasons for that support. Instead of complaining about opposition, attack with an informed, positive discourse on how much better Israel is than any other country in the Mideast and how US and European people are supporting It. There is a lot of good news about Israel. Let us hear about that.

If he doesn’t believe you certainly shouldn’t believe.

    New York’s JCC is not the only Jewish Institution to have been infiltrated by an Israel-bashing element (this is an ISM tactic). The Jewish Museum of New York should now be considered an anti-Israel institution. It currently is honoring Art Spiegelman, the Israel-hating cartoonist-writer. And the Museum has seen fit to invite the vicious advocate of Israel’s destruction, Professor Judith Butler, to give a lecture.

    • Daniel Greenfield

        That old dog don’t hunt. By the standards set by the right during the GWB administration (criticizing the President during war = anti-Americanism), you — and a fair number of your audience — are the anti-Americans now. Reap it.

          Talking out of your azz because your mouth knows better, again.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          GWB was fighting to protect America. Obama is fighting to protect America’s enemies.

          Motive is more important than position.

          • trickyblain

            The vast majority of Americans — regardless of support of the President — would find your statement (that Obama is fighting to support America’s enemies) totally insane. You may disagree with policy positions, but you lack standing or evidence for your constant juvenile, unintellectual accusations of him being evil and disloyal. It may get you blog hits, but have you no self-respect? Or respect for honest, thoughtful criticism?

            At the same time, Bush was neither evil or disloyal, though the same points were made by your ideological mirror images on the left (e.g., hacks). But GWB did get us into a number of disasters though unquestionably poor policy decisions. And your employer’s position that those who question those decisions were to be derided as “anti-American leftists.”

            Good for the goose…

            Criticizing the CiC in wartime is Anti-American when the CIC is fighting the war, not surrendering it.

          • trickyblain

            “If they paid more attention to what was really going on they wouldn’t.”

            A familiar sentiment. Much like:
            - If they paid more attention to what was really going on they wouldn’t…doubt that 9/11 was an inside job.

            - If they paid more attention to what was really going on they wouldn’t….doubt that Obama was Malcolm X’s live child who was born in Kenya and was born to destroy white people, Christianity and kittens.

            - If they paid more attention to what was really going on they wouldn’t…doubt that Jews are actually space lizards (from your blog yesterday mocking a nutty leftist).

            No evidence. No motive. No support from any authoritative figures (No, FPM is not even close). The premise that Obama is intentionally helping our enemies in order to harm us is nothing more than a conspiracy theory to rattle the cages of Neanderthals that see policymaking as some vile hybrid of reality show and WWE. Nice work — mission accomplished!

            “Criticizing the CiC in wartime is Anti-American when the CIC is fighting the war, not surrendering it.”

            “Surrender” has very specific meaning. It’s not one of those things that you can just lay on someone and it’s suddenly true. Otherwise, someone could say “Reagan surrendered in Beruit; he symbolizes cowardice and we should all loath him for wanting America detroyed.” And it would be totally true if we’re using your logic. But “surrender” has an official meaning. And no surrender has occurred under this president. Which leads us to a question based on your logical fallacy, based on your quote about the current president “fighting” the Long War…

            Why do you hate America?

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Reagan did the wrong thing in Beirut. Nothing wrong with admitting that.

            I just said that there’s not anything I’ve seen in the reality-based world (no, FPM is not even close) that tells me that he wants to help our enemies in order bring down the US. Sheesh.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            I recall his supporters denouncing just about any criticism of him as racist.

            Reality-based is usually prog speak for progressive.

            Backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, throwing away 1,500 lives in Afghanistan under restrictive Rules of Engagement and cutting a nuke deal with Iran are clearly not reality based.

          • trickyblain

            Hard to deny there’s no racism involved based soley on FPM’s message boards. Look at the articles on “black mob violence” y’all run here. Those ones get the freaks in a froth about the bell curve and all kinds of 17th century conceptions about race. Know you can’t conrol who posts what, but it’s your audience.

            “Reality-based is usually prog speak for progressive.”

            I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. Reality based means there’s evidence.

            “Backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt”

            I disagree with that stance. Yet there were pragmatic circumstances that made it politically inevitable. Remind us how Hamas came to power. Which president was touting “free elections in Palestine”? Was he trying to undermine the US? Did he want to see us destroyed?

            “(T)hrowing away 1,500 lives in Afghanistan under restrictive Rules of Engagement”

            The ROE in Afghanistan are FAR less restrictive than they were when GWB half-hartledly went into that god-forsaken land (see UBL killed in Paki). I’m to understand Obama is helping our enemies by surging in Afghanistan (where established bases attacked us on 9/11), but GWB is a better American because over 4,000 lives were “thrown away” (your logic) invading Iraq (did not attack us on 9/11)?

            “(C)utting a nuke deal with Iran are clearly not reality based”

            Well, if the nuke deal involves Iran demonstrably diluting its uranium to not be able to turn it into a fissionable (fission, how 1940!) weapon, why are you complaining?

    these people are obviously a fringe organization, or shall we say non-organization, they are irrelevant, have nothing to offer to anyone and just like to show they have money and they think that is why they should have influence. If Israel were not such a successful country they would probably show their “solidarity” with it and lament its position as a weak and sordid country. But because Israel is so successful both in its economy and its politics and now is shown to be a power to be recon with these fringe people do not like it. They would have much preferred to see Israel as a weakling that requires pity, and they will offer it.

    If you were to get inside these anti-Zionist Jews’ heads you’d hear, “We can hate on Jews better than the fiercest Jew hating goy. Which almost makes us goyim ourselves.” That is the secret mover behind their obsession, the deep wish to be free of being a Jew.

  • wileyvet

    I have read extensively about the Zionist movement, and the development of Palestine subsequent to the birth of The State of Israel, and it is nothing short of incredible. In the days of the first aliyahs, it was hard scrabble, but those dedicated enough to stay, built something spectacular. You can see pictures in the early 20th century of Tel Aviv. It was a sand dune on the Mediterranean. Look at it today. Nowhere else on earth, has a dilapidated and neglected region been so utterly transformed in recent history. The vision, hard work and effort of the pioneers and the generations of Sabras and immigrants should be an example to the world, not an object for contempt and derision.

            I have seen, on this web site, comments by other commenters in which those other commenters have tried to insult you by making bigoted comments about Black people and by propagating hatred toward Black people. It’s wrong to make bigoted comments about Black people and to propagate hatred toward Black people, and it’s wrong of people to try to insult you by making bigoted comments about Black people and by propagating hatred toward Black people. However, in any case, I don’t know whether or not you are Black. However, whether or not you’re Black, your support of the contemporary intendedly genocidal manifestation of anti-Jewish bigotry is wrong — very wrong. Anti-Jewish bigotry is belief in lies that vilify the Jewish people and has always been belief in lies that vilify the Jewish people. And lies that vilify the Jewish people have always been propagated hugely, subtly and grossly, in Western societies for the past over two thousand years. Genocidal anti-Jewish bigotry is belief in intendedly genocidal lies that vilify the Jewish people, and has been, repeatedly, for the past over two thousand years, belief in intendedly genocidal lies that vilify the Jewish people — – and the propagation of, and belief in, the contemporary universally propagated lies that vilify the liberal democratic newly-founded sole country of the Jewish people is intendedly genocidal anti-Jewish bigotry. And, in the past, during times of huge genocidal anti-Jewish movements, such as in Europe during the European Middle Ages, just like throughout the world now, some Jewish people have been some of the most influential propagators of intendedly genocidal lies against the Jewish people.

    Israel is the only free country in the middle east and probably will always remain so. Islam and freedom cannot coexist. If Muslims lay down their arms, there will be peace. If Israelis lay down their arms, there will be no Israel. These are simple facts that only Marxist intellectuals can fail to see. Israelis took a desert wasteland and turned it into a green oasis. Too many Muslims spend their time plotting death to infidels.

    Which side are you on?

    • stringman

      I will answer Uptown, knowing full well that logic and facts mean nothing when talking to the low information crowd. Before Israel was attacked by all the surrounding countries, the people who sided with the attackers left Israel. No doubt they hoped to return after Israel was conquered, to share in the spoils. Didn’t go as planned. Should Israel now open the gates and let the traitors back in? Currently, and for decades, ‘Palestine’ serves as the launching pad for all the bombs aimed at Israeli targets while Israel serves as the landing pad for people of faith and good will. And yet Arafat and his ilk receive untold amounts of US and international aid (a good portion of which they pilfered.)

      As for the billions in US aid to Israel, the first time one of the millions of visitors to the Holy land is turned away because it has become too dangerous due to lack of security (maintained by US support) you will hear a howl of Biblical proportions.

            Saying that the president is only black is repeating the racist, so-called “one drop” rule that existed in the South during Jim Crow. Not only was his father NOT American, but he is not directly related to the historical African diaspora in the Western Hemisphere (Obama’s father is from Kenya, which is located in East Africa, while the ancestors of most black people in the Western Hemisphere came from West Africa). The president’s mother was an American of direct European heritage, not African. Hence, the president is mixed-race, 50% black and 50% white. That’s the reality.

          • nopeacenow

            You can trace his ancestry if you want. He looks black and that is what counts to over 90% of black voters and those guilty whites who just felt so good voting for a man who “looked” black. He spoke in lofty platitudes to the soft idealistic Democratic left who thought he should be elected because he looked the part, not for any thoughts he put forward which amounted to none.

          • Omar

            Just like people claimed that George Zimmerman is “white”, even though he is half-Hispanic.

    The
    reason why these societal freaks, dhimmis, self-haters and throwbacks gain such
    traction is because the leadership in the mainstream Jewish community is so
    weak, so equivocating and uncertain about its own direction and identity. The
    Diaspora lacks in knowledge about Israel and Israel’s role in their survival.
    They lack knowledge of Islam and of history. They help Obama to advance the
    Israel hate project to its ultimate conclusion, the silencing of all Jews in
    America when it comes to their strong connection to Israel. In fact, these
    turncoats work hand-in-hand with Obama to divide and conquer the Jewish people
    and help to destroy Israel through tacit support of BDS and IAW on campuses. What
    these leftists and weak-minded fear most of all is rejection by the general
    community – as if their friendships and approval ratings depended on rejection
    of their own Judaism. So they replace all vestiges of Judaism and Judaism’s connection
    to Israel with secular leftism. There are people countering the self-haters but
    the voices do not come from the mainstream organizations who have the resources
    but choose to fund events that show Jewish determination to bond with Islamists
    and other minorities, showing disdain for their own people and their own people’s
    survival. Holocaust events are now so politically cleansed of any mention of
    Israel that they might as well be Kwanzaa celebration or Eid dinners (with the
    map of Israel purposely erased or labeled as “Palestine” for those sensitive to
    the right of terrorists to inhabit ancient Israel) – it is all the same to the
    self-loathers.

      • uptownsteve

        Getting their own countries back from imperialists was “reparations”????

        • Daniel Greenfield

          Ditto for Israel.

          • uptownsteve

            Oh geez. The Zionists WERE the Imperalists.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            A bunch of Jewish militias with makeshift and smuggled weapons fighting the armies of several Arab nations who were commanded by British officers like General Glubb were the imperialists?

          • reader

            He does not know that. Chomsky left this minor detail out.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            It doesn’t fit the narrative.

          • Omar

            The Islamist jihadist monkeys ARE the imperialists. Fact-check.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            The Arabs ARE the Imperialists. Jews were in Israel BEFORE the Arab imperialists invaded.

        • Omar

          The idea of “reparations” wasn’t a idea until 1969. Anti-colonialism isn’t the same as reparations. Read David Horowitz’s article to learn why reparations is a bad thing: http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=24317.

          How many African Americans have left America and returned to the Motherland?

          Stokely Carmichael?

          • Omar

            Stokely Carmichael is uptownsteve’s role model. He was actually from Trinidad & Tobago with a mixed Trinidadian, Panamanian, Jamaican and African American background. Anyway, Carmichael was a racist, bigoted, Marxist and an anti-Semitic, Islamist-sympathizing lunatic. Did you know that he derided civil rights leader Dr. King as “Uncle Martin” (a blend of the racist pejorative “Uncle Tom” and Dr. King’s first name, Martin)? Besides Carmichael’s rude behavior and being a proud extremist, he also admired many dictators in Africa. And this was the guy that uptownsteve admires.

      Is Affirmative Action, multi-generational welfare “reparations” for black people?

    How do this spoiled and treasonous bunch of useless celebrities and assorted wealthy people define “progressivism”? Obviously, the word was coined by leftists as a way of distinguishing themselves and their movement from the opposite word—regressive because identifying themselves as liberal and their opponents as conservatives did not demonize their opponents enough.
    after all, many conservatives, while valuing traditional values such as having a faith, being responsible workers, and being loving and devoted parents were ideals that both liberals and conservatives could agree on. At the same time, the liberal community was mostly patriotic and were appalled, just like the conservative community of the excesses of Stalin’s murderous regime. Thus, they moved away from the liberal label to calling themselves progressives. In this way, the causes that they support that seem to be morally repugnant are easily explained by the defining definition of progressive—supporting oppressed people against the tyranny of the oppressors.. Then, they defined it by declaring that the heroes of the left such are the oppressed (defined by progressives as enemies of America and Israel). In this way, Taliban who shoot schoolgirls in the head for wanting to go to school are considered to be less vile than Israelis who have the nerve to search people for weapons and explosives at checkpoints. Gloria Steinem loves these people because opposing the oppressors is much more important than protecting little girls who want to attend school. Since the practice of female circumcision or by the horrific treatment of gays and lesbians in the Arab world is practiced in the oppressed communities, they choose to attack male circumcision as evidence of the oppressors embrace of child abuse. I know they don’t see progressivism as applauding equal rights for the Lesbian, gay, transgender community as is practiced in Israel. They don’t see this “p” word to mean freedom of the press, speech, religion etc. as practiced in Israel because Israel, their definition is an oppressor, no matter how it acts. Thus, these haters of Israel from the academic arena must not define progressivism as academic freedom as practiced in Israeli universities because, once again, Israel is defined as an oppressor. They certainly do not consider progressivism to oppose infanticide of Jewish Israeli children(remember the Palestinian murderers who killed an entire Israeli family including a several month old child whose throat was slashed), suicide bombings of religious ceremonies, public buses, pizza parlors, etc. Instead, progressives seem to be living in an alternate universe where they approve of things (that they say they disapprove of) as long as the perpetrators meet their definition of being from the oppressed group. What stupid and shallow haters they are. It explains their fascination and support of the killer of police officer Daniel Faulkner by Mumia. After all, Faulkner was a blue collar white man who was part of the oppressive establishment while Mumia was a creative artist who was a victim of the oppressive white establishment. Guilt or innocence is irrelevant for these people. Instead, the only thing that counts for “progressives” is which side of the oppressor/oppressed are the participants from according to their opinion.

    A friend of mine summed up Islam ( the epitome of Jewish hatred ) in one sentence . “An addition of Muslims to a Nation is a subtraction in civilization” .

    Ivory tower idiots and cowards of past Jewish heritage.

    Dan, You just wasted a lot of ink. Since I am a slow reader, that is 10 minutes of my life I can never get back!!

  • David

    Marxism was born in a Jewish brain, carried out by Jewish Bolsheviks and funded by Jewish bankers.

  • Omar

    David Horowitz never said anything of the sort. Why don’t you condemn Al Sharpton for referring to Jews as “diamond merchants”?

  • Daniel Greenfield

    The very first one? You want to go back to the ritual sacrifice back in the 30s?
