It’s The Jews, Stupid9
January 22, 200
For many decades after World War II, Eastern Europe was completely
Judenrein, a Nazi term meaning free of – actually rid of – Jews. Small
wonder, given that the region’s concentration camps and crematoria –
Chelmno, Belzec, Treblinka, Sobibor, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Dachau,
Majdanek, Sachsenhausen, Buchenwald, Flossenburg, Mauthausen,
Ravensbruck, et al.– had incinerated millions of Jews in the Nazi’s
reign of terror. But even in the utter absence of Jews, anti-Semitism
And let’s not forget that even after the Holocaust, this intractable
hatred persisted – in France, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine,
Russia, Hungary, the list goes on and on. Even today, this age-old venom
thrives and in many places has grown to monstrous proportions. The same
can be said of countless places on earth where no Jews have ever lived
and no inhabitants of those places have ever met a Jew.
When it comes to anti-Semitism, no first-hand experience is necessary.
All that is required is the need to vent an existential rage that seems
to reside in the hearts and minds of those who desperately need a handy
scapegoat for whatever pathology ails them– rationality, facts, logic
and compassion be damned. Jew hatred is a virus of unknown origin that
has mutated over time into a contagious, malignant and incurable
pathology, reaching its apotheosis during the Holocaust but still alive
and pernicious as ever to this day.
Why is this? Why, through millennia of worldwide crises and conflicts,
has the microscopic population of Jews always been the bête-noire of
public opinion? Why, for instance, are the 1.3-billion Muslims
who inhabit every continent in huge numbers so threatened by a mere 13-million
Jews who live in small numbers primarily in tiny Israel and the United
Theories abound – this is the short list:
▪ The Jews killed Christ (who even Jew-haters acknowledge was a Jewish
rabbi), a canard removed from the canons of the Vatican (…not "guilty of
deicide”) through the initiation of Pope John Paul XXIII in the early
1960s. But this fails to explain why so many millions of Christians are
today among the most passionate friends and supporters of both Israel
and the Jewish people.
▪ The Jews "stole” the land of Israel from the so-called Palestinians, a
"people” invented in the late 1960s by the terrorist Yasir Arafat. But
this fails to explain the virulent Jew-hatred that existed in every
century that preceded the twentieth.
▪ The shame factor Jew haters feel that they are less resilient, less
intelligent, less productive than their Semitic counterparts, and can’t
explain why the vast number of Islamists – 20 percent of the world’s
population – have won only seven Nobel Prizes, while the infinitesimal
Jewish population – 0.02 percent – has won 129 Nobel Prizes. But this
fails to explain the spectacular accomplishments of every ethnic group
that has contributed to the betterment of mankind...
▪ The refusal of Jews to worship any God but their own, the God that
gave the world the Ten Commandments and a Code of Ethics that, to this
day, all civilized nations subscribe to.
▪ Both rage and envy at the notion, expressed in the Bible, that the
Jews are God’s "Chosen People,” even though it fails to explain the
competing claim of Muslims that Allah’s people are the chosen ones.

this one God, creator of all that is seen and all that is unseen, took
it upon Himself, unbidden by humanity, to pick a people, call them His

and provident manna…what if these people this One God picked were the
Shiver says what she loves about her Christian faith is that it
gives her "the advantage of seeing through tangled webs of deceit, woven
through many centuries and seemingly different ideologies. My faith
tells me simply that there is only one reasonable assumption on the
matter of Jew hate. It stems from God-hate…because as long as there is
God, there will be Jew hatred.”
Who Hates the Jews?
Among them are the many Jews who are also on the Jew-hatred bandwagon.
Without discussing self-loathing Jews like
and legions of others, how to explain those other American, mostly
These are the appeasers of anti-Semites who believe – as Winston
Churchill said about all appeasers – that "the crocodile will eat them
last.” While these Jews once supported Israel, their conversion from
Judaism to their new religion of Liberalism – with its inflexible
commitment to perceived victims – has made them look at Israel in
the same negative way they look at America.
Strength is bad, these anti-establishment, anti-war leftovers from the
‘60s believe, as do older leftists. If people suffer, it’s the fault of
the establishment. If the establishment is attacked, the attackers are
always right. After all, it’s not "fair” that some people are stronger
than others, even if the stronger people strive for democracy and their
opponents strive for a draconian theocracy.
Having embraced not only multiculturalism and political correctness but
also a perverse egalitarianism, it’s impossible for this ilk to make a
value judgment about who is right or wrong, good or bad. To them, people
who seek to spread freedom and democracy and benefit the entire world by
developing life-saving medicines and displaying unparalleled generosity
are equal to those who strap shrapnel-laden belts on their children and
burn the flags of foreign nations. "Who are we to judge?” they bleat.
Of course, not all liberals are Jewish. A worldwide media, comprised of
non-Jews of every race, religion, and political affiliation from left to
right, almost invariably militate – in their exquisitely non-objective
way – against Israel, no matter the circumstances or history that
compels the beleaguered state to defend itself. Although the same media
embraced the straggling remnants of the Holocaust when they landed, half
dead, in the land of their ancestors and Israel became a state in 1948,
their support was short-lived.
Indeed, the support from the Victims R Us media steadily diminished as
Israel turned barren deserts into flourishing orchards, constructed
gleaming cities featuring the world’s most dazzling universities and
research, art and medical centers, and built a military capable of
fending off – and defeating – the relentless aggression waged by Arabs
in the wars of
And that is not to omit the two intifadas – in 1987-1993 and 2000 to the
present – in which terrorists from Hamas and Hezbollah have sent
multi-thousands of rockets and mortars into civilian centers, and also
refined the art of suicide bombing.
Same Old, Same Old
In Israel’s latest defensive action against Hamas – after the terrorist
group launched upwards of 10,000 rockets and mortars into Israel’s
southern, civilian-populated towns and cities – we see the same
predictable scenario playing out on the world’s stage.
▪ Once again, Israel accommodates her enemies by giving up land in the
name of peace, as it did in 2005 by unilaterally withdrawing from the
Gaza Strip and uprooting 8,000 of its residents.
▪ Once again, instead of using the
physical-fitness facilities, fish farms, nurseries, orchards, and
factories the Israelis left behind, the Arabs destroy them, showing the
utter contempt they have for their own citizens.
▪ Once again, instead of honoring their agreement to live in peace, the
Arabs break their word and launch unprovoked acts of aggression.
▪ Once again, Israel withstands years of terror before striking back.
▪ Once again, Israel targets terrorist havens, underground tunnels used
for smuggling deadly weapons, and military targets.
▪ Once again, the craven cowards who run the terrorist organization hide
among their women, children, and hospitalized patients, guaranteeing
that civilians – whose lives, to them, are meaningless and dispensable –
▪ Once again, the terrorists use their useful idiots in the media to
capitalize on what Professor Alan Dershowitz has
as their immoral "dead baby strategy.”
▪ Once again, the media invoke their "proportionality” mantra – not
once about the 10,000 rockets that have targeted Israel, but
relentlessly about Israel’s response.
▪ Once again, the Islamic bloc and the other thugs that comprise the
47-member United Nations Security Council adopt a
resolution that "condemns” Israel and accuses her of "aggression”
but omits any mention of – surprise, surprise! – Hamas!
▪ Once again, the worldwide media pretend to be "outraged” on behalf of
the "victims,” having studiously ignored the real victims in Israel who
have been under assault for years.
▪ Once again, other "outraged” anti-Semites throughout the world join
protest marches to rally against…who? Why Israel, of course, and the
United States. But most of all against the Jews!
Make no mistake about it. The outrage, protests, U.N. resolutions and
biased media coverage are not about the latest Israeli-Arab conflict.
Rather, they are symptoms of the greatest pandemic of hatred the world
has ever known – plain, old-fashioned anti-Semitism.
Selective "Victim” Worship
As writer and author Victor Sharpe has
the media and the protestors "ignore horrors when Israel can’t be
Where, he asks, was their outrage when Arab Islamist governments killed
400,000 people in Darfur and Sudan, and drove two-million from their
homes? When 75,000 Hindus and Buddhists died in the Sri Lanka war? When
nearly four-million people died in the war in the Republic of Congo?
And where was the outrage in the "Second
Chechen war with up to 90,000 dead, the Islamic insurgency in the
Philippines with 160,000 casualties, an ethnic conflict in Nagaland with
the loss of 43,000 lives, the Turkish- Kurdish struggle with 37,000 dead
and wounded and…the Islamic insurgency in Kashmir with another 60,000
"Can you remember seeing street demonstrations or lurid pictures
flashed across your TV screen?” Sharpe asks. "The answer is no because
they are not Palestinians. As soon as Israel could no longer bear the
Palestinian provocations and finally retaliated, the world strangely
woke up and ended its deafening silence.”
Sharpe attributes "much of the world's hypocrisy [and]
pro-Palestinian bias” to the fact that "the world hated the stateless
Jews and now hates the State of the Jews.”
Whither This Hatred?
Whether Jew haters learned their animus through mother’s milk, personal
mentors, or religious teachings, they all believe that somehow –
magically, even – their lives would be better if Jews were not among
them – if Jews, in fact, were dead, and Israel wiped off the map.
According to Itamar Marcus and Barbara, Cook of
"Hamas considers itself an Islamic supremacist movement” and its Charter
dictates that Jews be exterminated. The Charter also states: "Oh Muslim,
servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him." Then
there is the Hamas poster that says, "Kill a Jew, Go to Heaven.”
But the virulence of the Islamic agenda – toward Jews, Christians, the
United States, Israel, and all of Western Civilization – is well-known
to media people and others who continue to vilify only the Jews. Some
try to hide their bias, but increasing numbers don’t, as evidenced by
the savagely anti-Semitic slogans and chants that "protestors” displayed
against Israel and on behalf of Hamas in suspiciously well-organized and
well-financed demonstrations in Toronto, London, New York City, Los
Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Germany, the list goes
Of course, our politically correct culture dictates that anti-Semites
talk in code:
▪ The word "proportionality” is reserved solely for Jews when they are
triumphing over their enemies.
▪ The rationale about liking Israel but not liking Zionism is code for
▪ The word "realist” that describes the "policies” of U.S. Cabinet
appointees, presidential advisors, and foreign-policy "experts” in our
State Department is code for preferring Arab oil to Israeli democracy.
▪ The accusation that Israelis are racists is, without exception, the
rant of anti-Semites who project their own rabid racism onto Jews.
Jew Hatred for Dummies
Make no mistake about it – we Jews are onto you Jew haters.
We see, with crystal-clear clarity, the media pretend to present "the
news” but unable to conceal their anti-Semitism – their racism.
We hear DNA anti-Semites like the liberal racist Bill Moyers – on the
taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting System – say that the
"Israeli violence” in Gaza is a consequence of "genetic encoding."
We witness the so-called diplomats at the U.N. extort multimillions of
dollars from U.S. taxpayers every year to spread their anti-American,
anti-Semitic agenda and to support third-world dictatorships that are,
above all things, dedicated to annihilating the Jews.
We watch, with 20-20 vision, the choices of Cabinet members and advisors
that our own American presidents have made and we invariably detect the
rank odor of systemic Jew hatred.
And we know, as surely as night follows day, that the premier subject
that obsesses the entire world is the Jews, Stupid!
Here’s a heads-up to all you Jew haters! We Jews are here to stay. The
Bible has told us so, and to this date – 5.000 years later – it’s never
been wrong! Get used to it. We’re not going away, your toxic racism
Deal with it!
