The New Jews

“Today is one of the most tragic days in the history of the Jewish people…

In this, the “Gaza Spring,” the IDF [Israel Defense Forces] has killed more than 80 Palestinians and maimed and wounded 10,000 more. Not one Israeli casualty, not a scratch. No guns on the “other” side just burning tires and “deadly” kites. Why do I have images of David and Goliath (except this time Goliath is winning)?

Why do I have images of people who after 70 years of exile, want to go home, to return to their homes? Are the Palestinians, in the face of the Israeli Goliath, the new Jews?

… We as Jews who remember the Holocaust and the victimization of the Jewish people stand in solidarity with the new Jews. If we don’t stand up and say no, we are complicit in murder, plain and simple.”

The foreword in bold typeface was written by an American Jew to his local synagogue. In a comment apropos his letter (published in someone likened it to a rich fat American beating up a man in a wheelchair. The IDF is one of the best equipped and most technologically advanced armies in the world.

The following from The Atlantic in September of 2016 is instructive:

The United States and Israel have made it official: The two countries signed a new 10-year military-assistance deal on Wednesday, representing the single largest pledge of its kind in American history. The pact, laid out in a Memorandum of Understanding, will be worth $38 billion over the course of a decade, an increase of roughly 27 percent on the money pledged in the last agreement, which was signed in 2007. The diplomatic and military alliance between the two countries is longstanding.”

America provides circa $4B per annum of military assistance to Israel. It’s analogous to giving the IDF a black Amex card and arranging first class travel to the military trade fairs where weapons of mass destruction can be procured. The Amex card has a $4B limit. The kicker is that it does not have to be repaid. This military assistance is free.

Why does the state of Israel require arms alms to defend its burgeoning borders? Its arsenal includes nuclear weapons.

When John Crossman revealed details of Israel‘s nuclear arms build-up to the British press in 1986 he was lured to Italy by the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, where he was drugged and abducted. He was secretly transported to Israel and convicted in a trial that was held behind closed doors. He was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment. He spent eleven years in solitary confinement. He was subsequently imprisoned for a further seven years for a trumped-up parole violation. This is how the state of Israel deals with nuclear whistleblowers. The last thing Israel wants is for the U.S. House of Representatives to form a select committee to question why American tax dollars are being used to advance nuclear arms proliferation in Israel.

Israel has recently been flying deadly incursion into Syrian air space with impunity. America has its back. When a radical cleric in Iran engaged in sabre rattling apropos Israel, Hilary Clinton stated that the U.S. would obliterate Iran. She would wipe Persia off the map should they attack Israel. American foreign policy is predicated on the whims of Jewish billionaires who bankroll U.S. Presidential campaigns. They can afford to back both horses in a two-horse race. Jewish billionaires pull Trump’s strings. Should the hard line hawks in the Knesset wish to confer more legitimacy to Israel’s land grab in Jerusalem, a call state side will lead to the U.S. relocating their embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

What we have in Palestine today is a pogrom. The Holocaust was also a pogrom. Prior to the genocide, European Jews were rounded up and forcibly relocated to gated ghettos. They had to pass checkpoints with their papers to travel to work. The Nazis did not build a wall when creating their Jewish ghettos. The Jews have gone further than their pogrom predecessors.

I accuse Israel’s right wing hawks and their American backers of illegally imprisoning Palestinians in what can best be described as internment camps. I accuse this warmongering coalition of killing innocent unarmed civilians including mothers carrying their infants in their arms.

Those like me who railed against Apartheid in South Africa should initiate all night vigils outside the American and Israeli embassies in London. Boycott Jaffa oranges and all Apple products. Hit them where it hurts the Jewish billionaires the most: their wallets.

  1. This is one of the saddest things I’ve seen in the world. America and Israel are behaving like the world’s bullys. Our media is complicit in letting these regimes get away with it, and are just the 4th Estate.
    It seems if you have nuclear weapons you can do whatever you want, to whomever you want and sprout your own propaganda pish to do it.
    I hope one day to see American fall, they are the Rangers of the world. Full of self entitlement, do as we say not as we do…

    Our world would be a much better place without this behaviour.

    I have no issue with a Jewish state, and firmly believe in a 2 state solution. But at the moment 1 is the jailor and 1 the prisoner, being subjected to imhumane treatment.

    Shame on the West, shame on America, shame on anyone who continues to vote to keep these regimes in power

    A sad sad time

  2. Bravo, JJ. An excellent post. As I have said before, I don’t always agree with you when you stray outside the Sevco narrative, but, unlike some others, I don’t mind that because the alternative would be for me to insist that you agree with me on everything – a palpably nonsensical position to adopt.

    By the way, in a previous post I note that some of your readers suspend their contributions when the football season comes to an end. When I first subscribed to our Speakeasy this thought never occurred to me. And it still doesn’t!

    JJ: Thank you for your continued support John.

  3. Extra special donation for an extra Java ‘n’ Baklava
    to wash down an extra special article. Great stuff JJ.

    JJ: your generous remittances will serve as my pre SC Final meal. A cup of cheer is most appreciated.

  4. Great piece. So America can shape the destiny of the world?It’s maybe picked the wrong canvas here and perhaps underestimated the feelings against Israel across the region. You are so right about their actions against the Palestinians. Where is the outrage? It may be that it’s only a matter of time before others step forward. Where will the UK government fall? In backing the Israel/American axis or humanity? I think I can hear Mrs May’s woeful lies already…

  5. “A reader ” JJ? Are we sure…i don’t see how they could sign a deal with ESPN, unless Tom Commentator moves too. Do Close Bros not own their screens yet…and Gatorade- is that no sold in green? I heard a rumour a while back that the Billys revolt at green, mind I’m old enough to remember when they tried to grow Texas blue grass….but that was the dead club, I’m sure such nuttiness was left behind when they started again

  6. John, your anger is righteous and your pen mighty. Donation made. The Green Brigade will also, I suspect, be very publicly supporting your stance tomorrow.

    JJ:Thank you.

  7. Excellent, incisive article. Trump must see recognition and money to be made as he bows to Israel requirements. For Sphere of influence and the leverage that Israel has over the USA look no further than the ownership of the Federal Reserve. How Donald would love to mingle in those circles. Jared ticked a lot of boxes when he came a courting of the Donalds daughter.

  8. I get annoyed about many things (Sevco?) but on a scale of 1-Gaza Sevco are a 0. The plight of Palestinians makes me fume with anger and shame. How can a group which legitimised its existence (Israel) as a safe space from the extreme antisemitism of Nazi Germany and Russia then treat other human beings with the same contempt. What annoys me most as shown in your excellent blog today is that Almost every political figure in the Western world condones the action or issues faint rebukes. On QT last night Diane Abbott was typical when she said “There is wrong on both sides, what I want is peace”. What she should have said obviously was peace and justice for without justice there can only be genocide as a method of gaining peace (the Nazi solution too). As individuals we are often impotent but never have I felt the whole world was so dramatically wrong, either by supporting the extreme Zionists in charge of Israel or by not criticising Israel or its US supporters.

  9. I’ve been saying similar things of late but this guy puts it very well and from a more objective perspective

  10. I sometimes don’t agree with your non footballing stuff but you are absolutely correct with this one JJ shame on Trump shame on Israel shame on the world for looking the other way

  11. Zionists are the problem, always have been, a group who use the holocaust as a template in their treatment of Palestinians and anti semitism or holoaust thrown at any dissenting voices

    1. Jack H, you propogated my view, almost entirely.
      The incredibly idiotic admin. ,of Trump’s government
      is beyond true belief and credibility.
      But, there IS an answer;
      Chapter 2 will commence shortly………….

    2. In 1941, British Intelligence analysts cracked the German “Enigma” code. This undermined the German war effort – but also threw new light on day-by-day events in the Nazi concentration camp system. Between January 1942 and January 1943, encrypted radio communications between those camps and the Berlin headquarters were intercepted and decrypted. Oddly enough, historians have largely ignored the information furnished in these intercepts relating to “arrivals,” “departures,” recorded deaths and other events at these camps. The only reasonable explanation for this embarrassing omission is that the intercepted data seriously contradicts, even refutes, the orthodox “Holocaust” narrative. The revealed information does not expose a program of mass murder and racial genocide. Quite the opposite: it reveals that the Germans were determined, desperate even, to reduce the death rate in their work camps, which was caused by catastrophic typhus epidemics. Were the British here hoodwinked by the Nazis, as some historians to this day try to claim—or is the truth both simpler and more shocking? In 1988 and 1991 forensic studies threw light on the question of whether or not the claimed gas chambers at Auschwitz had served as slaughter houses for hundreds of thousands of people. Both studies had concluded that the only facilities where Zyklon B gas had been used were hygienic rather than homicidal, killing bugs rather than Jews. Needless to say that these iconoclastic studies were ignored or in some countries even outlawed, and that their authors were ostracized and even imprisoned. Dr. Kollerstrom, a science historian, has taken these studies, which are in obvious, stark contrast to the widely accepted narrative, as a starting point for his own endeavour into the land of taboo. After he had published a brief paper summarizing what he thought the data forced him to conclude, he was thrown out of his College where he had been a member of staff for eleven years. In his new book Breaking the Spell, Dr. Kollerstrom shows that “witness statements” supporting the human gas chamber narrative clearly clash with the available scientific data. He juxtaposes the commonly accepted ideas about a Nazi extermination policy toward the Jews with a wide array of mostly unchallenged, but usually unmentioned evidence pointing in a quite different direction, for instance: Zyklon B is a buzz word for the claimed Nazi mass murder, but all non-anecdotal evidence proves that this chemical was merely used as a pesticide in order to improve the inmates’ health and reduce, not increase, camp mortality. Zyklon B applied in delousing chambers formed chemical compounds detectable to this day. No such compounds can be found, but ought to be expected, in the claimed homicidal gas chambers. The UK’s intelligence decrypts prove that the German camp authorities were desperately trying to save their inmates’ lives. “Six Million Jews threatened or killed”: read 167 quotes from newspapers with that “news” spanning from 1900 to 1945, with a peak after World War ONE! Yes, one, not two! Germany has paid compensation to millions of Nazi victims, and Israel has implicitly admitted that many million Jews survived the Holocaust. A British archaeological team looked for traces of the claimed 800,000 victims of the Treblinka camp—and came back empty-handed. Dr. Kollerstrom concludes that the history of the Nazi “Holocaust” has been written by the victors with ulterior motives and that this history is distorted, exaggerated and largely wrong. He asserts that this history is, in truth, a great lie that distorts our common perceived reality and misdirects human history to this very day. With a foreword by Prof. em. Dr. James H. Fetzer; contains a bibliography and an index….Now banned on Amazon.

      1. James you do not to my knowledge in any way contribute to the upkeep of this site, as you should. You want your voice to be heard. It’s an interesting voice. When you dabble in astrotheolgy and link all religions to satanic rituals I give up on you. I am an atheist. To me all religions and the construct that is Satan are inalienable concepts. I accept the rights of individuals to follow any creed they choose, but not to weaponise their creeds. I am not anti Semitic. One of my best friends Max who now lives in Tel Aviv – he was born in South Africa – is a liberal Jew but like many concerned fathers with conscripted sons perceives the Palestinians as a threat. A threat that has to be contained. I have always advocated a two-state solution. I am not at ease with Holocaust denial. Forensic evaluation after the fact does not stack up against what you dismiss as anecdotal evidence but what I perceive to be first hand accounts. I’m going to part company with you James. I don’t mind being challenged. I encourage challenge. However moderating your posts takes up too much of my time. I won’t continue to do so unless you step up and do the right thing.

  12. Well said jj im a long time lurker.n unwaged at that a carer for my elderly mum without re-compence from the state age 53 37 years of paying tax and NI if i had the spare i would donate to your fine blog but alas i cant afford it and for thst im sorry for work as alluminating as yours deserves payment when better times come i will square all

  13. Absolute rubbish JJ. Israel is a very small country surrounded by enemies.
    Iran has established a foothold in Syria and has been arming Hezbollah in Lebanon.
    Hamas brutaly governs Gaza and like Hezbollah is committed to the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of every Jew, along with Christians and Druz.
    Over the past few weeks there have violent riots in Gaza orchestrated by Hamas. In these riots, armed Hamas fighters have along with tens of thousands of civilians have attempted to break through the border fence which separates the baying mob from Israeli villages.
    The IDF did what it had to do to protect these the inhabitants of these villages from an impending slaughter. Many believe that the IDF demonstrated a tremendous amount of restraint in it’s actions and snipers targeted terrorists for the most part. Hamas admits this.
    As for boycotting Israeli goods, don’t forget to boycott your mobile phone and computer or tablet also.

  14. THE WHOLE WORLD IS CAMPED AGAINST THE JEWS AS THE SCRIPTURES HAVE FORETOLD. HAMAS LED THE OPPOSITION TO THE JEWISH CAPITAL BEING RELOCATED. LETS IMAGINE, THE PAKISTANI COMMUNITY WANTED THE CAPITAL OF SCOTLAND TO BE CHANGED FROM EDINBURGH TO Kinningparkabad, How would the good people of Edinburgh feel? What if the European experience of the nice “refugees was being played out in Glasgow, between The Cross and Ibrox in the Wholesale cash and carry region?
    How would that feel?

  15. An interesting perspective on a multi dimensional problem which will not be resolved in our lifetime.

    Where to begin? Why the obsession with Palestinians when there are other parts of the world where there are displaced people in far greater numbers. And subject to real and daily oppression which they would trade for a day in Hebron.

    Let me be blunt. Israel is the daily victim of Arab exterminotarty violence. Yes. Read that again. Iran has stated that it wants the destruction of ALL JEWS in Israel. It is THE ONLY STATE ON THE PLANET WHICH FEATURES GENOCIDE ON ITS PROSPECTUS. Iran wants Israel to be obliterated from the map. It wants all Jews in Israel to be wiped out. That is part of it’s regularly stated mission statements.

    Now then, being an aggressor is one thing. Genocide is another. Iran wants to wipe out the Jews in Israel. Iran is the ONLY state on the planet with genocide in its business plan.

    That’s by way of context. Of the 62 killed in Gaza a few days ago, 50 were confirmed Hamas activists. Hamas is funded by Iran via Hezbollah. The Hamas Mafia do very nicely thanks to Hezbollah and any Israeli ‘kills’ carries a bonus.

    The comparison with European pogroms against the Jews (my lot died in Treblinka) and Palestinians is inappropriate and seriously misguided. The Poles, Czechs, Russians and Germans tried to wipe out communities based on their religion (Jews). That is not the case in Israel.

    I once hoped for a two nation state. That is impossible. Hamas, funded by Iran, is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and a statement of genocide.

    Israel remains a beacon of entrepreneurial flair and a thriving economy where ALL folks can celebrate their religion and sexual orientation without being thrown off a balcony.

    And it is interesting to note that Israel’s new best friends are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Oman.

    The REAL oppressor in the Middle East is Iran. That country represents a danger to all of us and sponsors international terrorism.

    The Palestinian ‘problem’ won’t go away. But neither will the Jews in Israel. We are not going anywhere.

    1. Thank you TM for your measured and informed perspective. I have more than one Jewish friend. Gary, a tank commander during his national service days, openly thanked God for giving him Arabs as his enemies. He knew his IDF could take all of them.
      Iran on the other hand, should they develop nuclear weapons, is a threat to both Gary and Max and should it escalate all mankind. The fifty Iranian sponsored ‘terrorists’ could be constructs of Israeli black propaganda, but even if they were on Iran’s payroll they were unarmed. They were gunned down like dogs. As were women and infant children and a baby of a few months. This was a slaughter and it’s inexcusable. America and their Jewish paymasters are equally culpable. Your opinion on this site is just as important as mine but on Gaza the best one can hope for is to agree to disagree. James Houston, a Holocaust denier, was allowed his last comment on this site. I cordially invite you to take him to task. If you don’t wish to engage in dialogue I will remove his comment. I try to run a speakeasy but he pushes me to my limits. Your call TM.

  16. Agree that the Gaza shootings were an atrocity. Russia continues atrocities in Ukraine having invaded illegally Myanmar massacred the Rohingya. Turkey and Iran have carried out atrocities against the Kurds To name just a few Why do you single out Israel?

  17. I agree with Philip Luther of Amnesty International on this one:
    “This is another horrific example of the Israeli military using excessive force and live ammunition in a totally deplorable way……This is a violation of international standards, in some instances committing what appear to be willful killings constituting war crimes.”

    My aunt is a Palestinian who moved to Scotland with her family for a better life. Those people have nothing and see nothing but violence, oppression and pain. The road to peace there doesn’t start with a dialogue on a two state solution etc… it starts with allowing people a decent quality of life and to feel human. Give people something to live for and they’ll be less willing to die for circumstances to change. Israel depleted the last of my sympathies for their plight in their previous inexcusable invasions of Palestinian territory. War-mongering is an American solution to foreign policy – not the way responsible nations should behave.
