Holocaust Apologist: Jonathan Kay, a Bully Among the Truthers
Here is a terrific new review of Jonathan Kay’s anti-truth diatribe Among the Truthers. The author, Yehuda Littman, is young Orthodox Jewish man who has recently joined the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth. Yehuda is booked for today, Wednesday 10/31/2012, on Truth Jihad Radio. I hope he will return to debate Jonathan Kay – if Kay dares show his face after this! -KB
by Yehuda Littman, for the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth
You know what the psychologists say: When a person is being bullied it is a reflection on the person who is doing the bullying.
The same thing could be said about the people who demonize the 9/11 truth movement. Take Jonathan Kay – please!
In his book Among the Truthers, Kay doesn’t want to understand why we question 9/11. Instead, he focuses on the personalities, attacking them with absurd ad hominems and non
Kay’s worst, most libelous ad-hominem is his attempt to link 9/11 truth to holocaust denial. In fact, it is Kay who is not just a holocaust denier – he is a holocaust apologist, a supporter of the mass murder of millions of innocent people in the 9/11 wars.
Kay also tries to paint 9/11 truth as “anti-Semitic.” He is especially vexed when anyone notices that Zionist Jews appear to have played a disproportionate role in 9/11 – and definitely did play the major role in launching the 9/11 wars. Yet he himself equates people’s ethnic backgrounds with their political beliefs, with far less evidence!
Consider three of Kay’s targets: Luke Rudkowski, Daniel Estulin, and Lubo Zizacovic. Kay wants us to believe their Slavic ethnic backgrounds explain their skepticism about 9/11!
In the case of Rudkowski, Kay calls him “the son of Polish immigrants who imparted to their son an evident hatred and fear of totalitarianism.” Daniel Estulin, Kay suggests, is suspicious of power because his father was jailed and tortured by the KGB. As for Lubo Zizakovic, he lacks faith in our fearless leaders because he believes NATO hatched a plan to humiliate Serbia in the 1990s.
Kay introduces Zizakovic as a “man of Serbian ancestry whose distrust of the U.S government became a fixation when NATO took sides against Slobodan Milosevic during the Balkan wars of the 1990s.” Kay, who unquestioningly sides with NATO in every instance, mocks Zizakovic for wondering whether the West cares more about the Kosovo Albanians than the Palestinians, and for saying the Racak massacre and the Kosovo “genocide” were hoaxes.
It so happens that Jonathan Kay is the editor of one of the most prestigious newspapers in Canada, the National Post. Does Mr. Kay not realize that his own newspaper backs up Mr. Zizakovic’s assertion that the genocide was a hoax, and that the Kosovo Albanian leadership is mixed up with al Qaeda and the heroin trade?
Let me cite three examples from Jonathan Kay’s newspaper the National Post. The first is a Nov 13th 2001 National Post article titled “War on Terror Skipped the Kosovo Liberation Army” by James Bisset, a former ambassador to Yugoslavia. A second headline dated March 15th, 2002 tells us: “U.S supported al-Qaeda cells during Balkan wars fought Serbian troops.” The third article, dated April 6th 2004 by retired Canadian major general Lewis Mackenzie, is entitled “We bombed the wrong side.” In that article, Mackenzie says there was no genocide. Additionally, we have learned that in addition to being terrorists and heroin traffickers, the Kosovo Liberation Army would harvest the organs from Serb prisoners before killing them. (See the New York Times December 16th 2010 and the Times of London Dec15 and 16th 2010.)
Is Mr. Kay telling us that his own newspaper publishes conspiracy theories by holocaust deniers?
Additionally, Daniel Flynn, in a review of Kay’s Among the Truthers published in the American Conservative Magazine, points out that Jonathan Kay is a fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. That organization, the successor to the notorious, 9/11-implicated Project for a New American Century, came up with the conspiracy theory that the WMD were whisked away into Syria.
Mr. Kay and other neocons like to charge that we 9/11 truthers are holocaust deniers. The assertion is absurd. This author is a orthodox Jew and a grandson of holocaust survivors who lost relatives in the gas chambers. Indeed, Kay and the neocons are correct that killing 3000 people in ten seconds is a holocaust, the sort of thing Nazis or Communists would do. But it is the official story, which accuses a religious ethnic group of complicity in the attacks without any authentic evidence, that denies the reality of this holocaust.
How does Mr. Kay explain why 1700 architects and engineers signed the petition calling for a new investigation into 9/11? What about the dancing Israelis who were arrested for celebrating 9/11 and failed polygraph tests? And how about the Israeli “art students” who mounted the biggest spy operation against America in history during the months before 9/11, followed the alleged hijackers around, and camped out with construction passes on the 90th floor of the North Tower right before 9/11?
And why was Osama Bin Laden never charged with the attacks? Why we are making an anti-Muslim holocaust against a long list of countries whose citizens had nothing to do with 9/11? After all, the hijackers didn’t come from Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Pakistan, or Mali.
Just because you suspect Zionist involvement in 9/11 or mention the fact that Israel has a criminal record in false flag attacks doesn’t mean you’re anti Semitic. That’s like saying a person who believes in the official version is islamophobic.
On page 111 and 112 Mr. Kay acknowledges that false flag attacks have occurred. He mentions the Reichstag Fire, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, and the Kirov murder. But he leaves out Israeli false flag attacks like the Lavon affair, when Zionist terrorists blew up American and British targets in Egyptian movie theaters, post offices and libraries. He leaves out the Israeli attack on the USS liberty, when Israel murdered 38 American sailors to blame Egypt. And Mr. Kay leaves out the Baghdad bombings, when the Zionist terrorists threw grenades at synagogues in Baghdad, murdering four worshippers. Their goal: to make Jews believe they were under attack by their Muslim neighbors and scare them into fleeing to Israel.
Why does Mr. Kay leave all that out?
In another distortion, Kay says 9/11 truth movement is prone to infighting between the older left wing and the more younger conservative right wing (p.285). Personally, I do not know of any infighting taking place. But the fact that we have both liberals and conservatives in the 9/11 truth movement just goes to show just how mainstream the movement is. Mr. Kay tries to turn this strength into a weakness, by looking at the glass as half empty instead of half full.
It doesn’t matter if you are liberal or conservative, Slavic or Muslim, black or white, or (in my case) orthodox Jewish. 9/11 truth is just about common sense.
Now like I said before, there is no connection between holocaust deniers and anti- Semitism, and 9/11 truth. But because these neocons like Mr. Kay always bring it up, I would like to address that issue for a moment.
Mr. Kay says of a conservative writer by the name of Joseph Sobran that “in his final years, he became so thoroughly detached from reality that he saw nothing wrong with appearing at holocaust-denier conferences alongside full-fledged anti-Semites” (p. 191). He sneers that 9/11 truth leader Dr. Bob Bowman, a former head of the Star Wars program under two administrations, “defends himself against allegations of consorting with holocaust deniers by averring ‘my father was an ethnic Jew.’” (In fact, there is no evidence that Dr. Bob Bowman has ever “consorted” with “Holocaust deniers.”)
Personally, if I were to have the privilege of appearing at holocaust denier conferences or “consorting with holocaust deniers” I would ask: Where in the Holy Bible or the Holy Koran does it say that you are not allowed to ask questions about World War II history? Nobody ever harmed a Jew or thought of harming a Jew after reading a revisionist book. It says in the Bible that you are not allowed to lie cheat kill or steal. Nowhere does it say you can’t ask questions.
In contrast, the neoconservatives have supported the 9/11 wars in which millions were murdered.
As the Bible says: “Distance yourself from falsehood” (Exodus23:7). The Talmud says “the seal of God is truth” (Sabbath55a ). Proverbs 12:22 says: “False lips are an abomination to God.” Tractate Mishna Avot Fathers1:18 says: “The world stands on three things: justice, truth, and peace.”
The neocons lie, cheat, kill, and steal. So I would rather take my chances on burning in hell for hanging out with “holocaust deniers” or “full-fledged anti-Semites” like David Irving, David Duke, Jurgen Graf, or Willis Carto than hang out with neoconservative filthy Zionist Jewish supremacists murderers like Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer, Thomas Friedman, Jonah Goldberg, and others responsible for the deaths of millions of people.
Jews talk too much and harp too much about the holocaust. They need to follow in the footsteps of Emile Zola and speak out against the 9/11 blood libel and the 9/11 wars and declare: j’ accuse.
As the London Independent (April25th and 26th 2012) and American Conservative (April 2011) have reported, the neocon-inspired 9/11 wars have brought an epidemic of birth defects to Iraq – especially the city of Fallujah.
In Fallujah today, doctors routinely recommended abortions because the babies are going to be more or less dead. Children are born with three fingers or two heads. When people go to the bathroom they urinate blood. All this is a result of the depleted uranium.
I would also like to ask Mr. Kay: What is the sum total of deaths in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia,Yemen, and Serbia? Does his newspaper ever mention that according to Dr.Gideon Polya, cited in professor David Ray Griffin’s book 9/11 Ten years Later (p.240), the neocon wars on Iraq and Afghanistan have killed more people than the Nazi holocaust did?
As of January 2010, 4.5 million people have died in Afghanistan. In Iraq as of March 21 2009 2.3 million had died. If you add that up you get 6.8 million people. Mr. Kay, is that not also a holocaust? Please tell me why is the blood of a Jew killed in Auschwitz more red than the blood of the millions of people murdered in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia, Yemen, and Serbia? Why are there no holocaust museums or memorials dedicated to these innocent people? Where is the memorial dedicated to Abu Ghraib?
Would the Jews like it if 6.8 million Jews were killed?
And you call us holocaust deniers.
What a hypocrite.
The same neo-conservatives who call us holocaust deniers also deny the fact that 1.5 million Armenians were murdered by their Turkish Zionist friends in the 20th century’s first genocide. In fact, a higher percentage of Armenians were murdered than Jews. According to some estimates, one-third of Armenians were murdered.
On page 298 of his book Mr. Kay complains about the “ultraliberal” United Church of Canada “whose activists rarely make a peep when Christians are slaughtered in Pakistan or Iraq, but militate for sanctions against one of the only nations in the Middle East where Christians can worship without fear.” He fails to mention that the Iraqi Assyrian Christians were able to worship without fear for 1400 years under Islam and the so called dictator Saddam Hussein before the American invasion.
The same thing is happening now in Syria. Before America brought in al-Qaeda to exterminate the Christians, the Christian communities in Iraq and Syria were the oldest in the world. They spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus. Now thanks to the invasion of Iraq and American support of al-Qaeda they are being exterminated; their glorious history and presence and language are coming to an end.
Jonathan Kay also omits the fact that the Serbian Orthodox Christians in “liberated” Kosovo are being slaughtered, without much protest from the world. And he neglects to mention that Armenian and Assyrian Christians and Jews are able to worship freely in the Islamic Republic of Iran. (Of course, all that may change if the neoconservatives and neoliberals start an invasion.)
On page 306 Mr. Kay acknowledges that every major Jewish organization lined up to support the war against Iraq – which I would call the holocaust against Iraq. It is shameful and disgraceful that the Jewish organizations supported the war. In light of this “Jewish” support for the world’s most recent holocaust, I believe that what they call “anti-Semitism” is 100 percent justified. I would like to follow in the footsteps of Emile Zola and declare j’accuse: The Zionist organizations need to be punished by having their assets seized and their leaders criminally prosecuted.
Yes, there is a First Amendment. But just like you don’t have the right to scream fire in a crowded theater, so too you don’t have the right to scream WMD on a crowded planet
Mr. Kay complains about the magazine Adbusters for comparing the situation in Gaza to the Warsaw ghetto (p. 298). He labels as “equally offensive” a 2004 feature outing the neocons: “Why won’t anyone say they are Jewish?” That article listed “all the powerful Jews who pushed for the invasion of Iraq.”
I am sorry, Mr. Kay, that is not anti-Semitic; that is the unfortunate truth.
If Fox News and CNN can rant about ‘radical Islam” without being called islamophobic then why can’t we mention that the PNAC gang is Jewish? If it is okay to say that Osama Bin Laden or Major Hassan is Muslim, then why can’t I say that Larry Silverstein is Jewish? Can you imagine the media staying silent if the lease holder of the WTC were Muslim? What if a Muslim billionaire had taken over the condemned-for-asbestos white-elephant WTC two months before 9/11, doubled the insurance, changed it to a cash-payout policy, admitted to demolishing one of the skyscrapers himself, and then sued for billions of dollars compensation for the building he admitted to “pulling”? I think there would be more calls for an investigation.
On February 8th, 1920, Sir Winston Spencer Churchill published a Sunday Herald article which is still pertinent today. It was titled Zionism verses Bolshevism: A struggle for the soul of the Jewish people. Churchill’s article was written after the Bolshevik takeover of Russia. In it, Churchill writes that “in the creation of Bolshevism, the role of atheistical Jews probably outweighs all others.” He contrasts the patriotism of national Russian Jews with the schemes of the international Jews. Churchill describes the latter as “a sinister confederacy of men reared up among the unhappy populations.” He goes on: “Most if not all of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world.”
Churchill writes: “This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany) and Emma Goldman (the United States)” – and here I would also add Bill Kristol and Thomas Friedman – “this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of the arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. This band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire…There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews.”
The same thing could be said about their heirs today – the neocon globalist Jews. These filthy neoconservative Jews are the children of the Trotskyites. And they have gripped the American people and the people of the world by the hair of their heads.
No one would call Winston Churchill an anti-Semite. Indeed, the neoconservatives consider him a hero. So if Winston Churchill is allowed to speak the truth about Bolshevism, why can’t Adbusters or the 9/11 truth movement speak the truth about the neocons?
Let us remember that George Bush had Churchill’s bust in the Oval Office. (Mitt Romney said during a presidential debate that if he were elected he would bring back the bust; that was practically the only thing he was able to disagree with Obama on.)
Churchill’s article was prophetic. Bolsheivism resulted in the deaths of sixty million people. Do the heirs of the Trotskyites really want to repeat the crime of their fathers?
Unfortunately, it looks like they do.
So it is my hope and prayer to God that America will soon wake up to the reality of 9/11, throw off the yoke of the New World Order, and elect a President who will place a statue honoring the heroic and courageous 9/11 truth movement in the oval office.
