Anti-Zionism Continues to Rise

At the end of summer, we reported that the there was a storm of anti-Zionist movements across Europe and America due to the Gaza debacle. Well, that storm has not lost its potency. Just a few days ago, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz has reported,

“An internal European Union document on proposed sanctions against Israel, which Haaretz obtained in its entirety on Monday, reveals new details on the suggestions being made in the internal discussions among EU member states that have been taking place in Brussels.

“Among the options under consideration are measures against European companies that work in settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem

“If this measure should be carried out, it could harm quite a few Israeli businesses that work with European companies on projects in the settlements.

“For example, the Dutch Foreign Ministry recommended that the Dutch water company Vitens not carry out projects in the settlements in collaboration with Israel’s water company, Mekorot.

“Several months previously, the Dutch government recommended that the Royal Haskoning infrastructure company reconsider constructing a sewage purification plant in East Jerusalem for the Jerusalem municipality.

“A measure of this kind could lead to a boycott of senior government ministers such as Naftali Bennett and Uri Ariel of Habayit Hayehudi, many Knesset members from Likud, and, even in extreme cases, President Reuven Rivlin, who does not support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.”[2]

Rivlin, who is the president of the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Israel, seems to have noticed this backlash in Europe. The Jerusalem Post cited him pronouncing a devastating blow on Israel. Rivlin said,

“The time has come to admit that Israel is a sick society, with an illness that demands treatment.”[3]

Rivlin said that the regime has “forgotten how to be decent human beings.”[4]

That certainly is a bad rap for the Zionist regime—and it is just the beginning. Last month, the Israeli journalist Gideon Levy of Haaretz called Jerusalem “the capital of apartheid.”[5]

In the same month, Amiras Hass of the same newspaper, concentrating on what the regime is doing to poor Palestinian farmers and settlers, declared that Israeli evil

“trickles like water and bursts out from hidden places. But unlike floods, it does not reach an end, and it affects some while being invisible, undetectable and non-existent for others.

“The genius of Israeli evil is in its ability to disguise itself as compassion and concern (thus providing Bernard-Henri Lévy and Elie Wiesel with yet another opportunity to praise the Jewish state in widely-read essays)…

“The genius of Israeli evil is that it is broken down into an infinite number of atoms, individual cases that the human brain – and even more so a newspaper column – cannot contain in their entirety, and a single definition cannot conceptualize them…

“To keep our blood pressure down, we have not touched on the evil embodied in the killing of children by Israeli troops, the evil of Israel’s collective disregard of the inevitable wrath that builds up with the burial of each bullet-riddled child, the evil that exists in the evasive wording imposed by so-called objective traditions of news reporting.

“Killing? Israeli soldiers shoot at Palestinian children because that is the job of soldiers who are sent to protect, with self-sacrifice, the colonialist enterprise and the benefits that it provides to the master nation. Is it any wonder that so few Israelis are emigrating abroad?”[6]

J. Goldberg of the Jewish Daily Forward has recently written that “we’re entering a new and sharply more perilous period for the Jewish state.” The statement came from an article entitled, “When Israel’s Chickens Come Home to Poop.”[7]

Amnesty International has recently made things even worse for the Zionist movement with a report saying that Israel has committed war crimes by targeting Palestinian civilians last summer.

Amnesty Director of Middle East and North Africa Programme Philip Luther declared that Israel

“brazenly flouted the laws of war and ‘deliberately flattened entire homes full of civilians…”

Finally, Professor Robert Wade of London School of Economics decided to start with what one might call first principles by visiting the West Bank to see what the conflict is all about. His observation is quite stunning:

“The average income of Jewish Israelis (at market exchange rates) is around $40,000; that of Ara

b Israelis $13,000; that of West Bankers $3700, and less in Gaza…

“Israel systematically blocks Palestinian external trade with other countries (70 per cent of the West Bank’s exports are sold in Israel). The only alternatives to Israel’s ports are two land bridges to Jordan. Israel often closes one of them, and the other is often choked by insufficient infrastructure.

“Israel levies murky forms of protection against Palestinian products, such as health and safety standards that Palestinian producers cannot comply with.

“Israeli law requires a wide range of products, including pharmaceuticals, to be certified before entering Israel; but Israeli security law also typically prohibits Israeli citizens from performing inspections in the Palestinian territories.

“Palestinian products subject to these rules therefore cannot be sold to the Israeli market, because they cannot be inspected by Israelis before entering Israel.

“Israel has steadily blocked Palestine’s bids for membership of the World Trade Organisation, despite EU support and US non-objection, so Palestine cannot bring complaints against Israel’s restrictions on its exports to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism.

“At the same time as Israel is unconstrained by WTO rules in its dealings with Palestinian trade, the Palestinian economy bears the brunt of the free trade policies – unrestricted imports – instituted by the Palestinian Authority in compliance with the rules of the customs union with Israel and with the prescriptions of the World Bank and IMF.

“No surprise, then, that the ratio of Palestine’s exports to GDP has steadily declined over the past two decades. One need not believe in free international trade as a magic bullet for development to see that Israel’s restrictions on Palestine’s international trade – even with Israel – are a major obstacle to Palestine’s economic development.

“Around 70 per cent of the Palestinian Authority’s revenue comes from customs and other fees collected by the Israelis on the PA’s behalf. The Israelis take a sizeable collection fee and pass on the balance (or not).

“If some Palestinians behave badly in Israeli eyes – by striking back against the occupation or pressing for membership of international organisations – they may withhold the revenue, starving the PA of funds and making it difficult to provide even minimal public services…

“[The restrictions] are so pervasive and systematic that it almost seems as if the Israeli state has mapped the entire Palestinian economy in terms of input-output relations, right down to the capillary level of the individual, the household, the small firm, the large firm, the school, the university, so as to find all possible choke points, which Israeli officials can tighten or loosen at will.”[8]


Here and elsewhere we are not denying that the Zionist regime exerts an enormously powerful influence on much of the world, most specifically on America and England. But that again is no reason to despair or to drop our weapons and surrender.

Truth and the moral order do not need an army or a multitude to win a battle. Truth only needs serious people to take the Talmudic ideology by the ball and expose it for what it really is.

That is one reason why the Dreadful Few are scared to death when even only one person or just an obscure group of people is out there proclaiming the truth, striping the Zionists of their political maneuvering, and saying with cogent and constructive arguments that the Zionist emperor simply has no clothes.

If you do not think that the Dreadful Few are scared when people expose them, ask Frederick Toben, Denis Rancourt, Arthur Topham, Norman Finkelstein, Joel Kovel, Cynthia McKinney, Steven Salaita, among others. McKinney in particular was doing well politically until his father dropped the atomic bomb by saying that “Jews have bought everybody.” Then it was McKinney’s turn to take up arms:

People like Rancourt have been politically and academically assassinated—and Rancourt was already tenured! I have recently asked him if there is any new information he would like to add. He responded, “Are you kidding? I’m in the middle of a mega legal process…”

Again, how is that possible in the West? Here is a man who has never committed a crime, was already tenured with a stellar academic research, and now he is being economically tortured by the Dreadful Few for his unpardonable sin! Don’t they tell us ad nauseam that they are in favor of “diversity”? Why can’ they accept a little diversity of opinions in their midst? Don’t they push “multiculturalism” upon us all? Why can’t they give Professor Rancourt a chance?

Well, the Dreadful Few ask for “diversity” only when they are not in charge. But as soon as they take over a university or country, no “diversity” is allowed. As Fredrick Toben put it a few years ago, “the only freedom we have in the west is the freedom to go shopping.” When it comes to criticizing the Dreadful Few, that freedom is certainly not granted.


We have already seen how Netanyahu has now been viewed as a “chickenshit.” And right after Netanyahu was humiliated, James Baker, a former secretary of State, declared that he “barred him [Netanyahu] from the State Department. That may not be widely known.”[9]

Things did not get better for Netanyahu when it was reported: “going against Netanyahu, 84 percent of US Jews favor Iran nuclear deal.”[10] Netanyahu is still trying to regain some political ground, but he is just barking. He has recently declared that

“The Islamic state of Iran is not a partner of America, it is an enemy of America and it should be treated as an enemy. The worst thing that could happen now is for the international community to agree to a deal that would leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power and removes its sanctions.”[11]

This man has been lying to the West since time immemorial,[12] and now he wants us to take him seriously, as if we are all a bunch cattle going to the slaughter house. Does he seriously think that he can fool people all the time? Listen to this man back in 2012—and see if you can recognize the chicken thing in his rhetorical skill:

Netanyahu has been out of touch with reality since the 1990s, and Israeli officials are quickly finding that out. Reserve Major General Eyal Ben-Reuven has pronounced that Netanyahu “suffers from some sort of political blindness that drives him to scare himself and us.”[13]

That again is a bad report which does not help the Zionist cause. It has been reported that

“a group of 106 retired generals, Mossad directors and national police commissioners has signed a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urging him to “initiate a diplomatic process” based on a regional framework for peace with the Palestinians.”[14]

The letter reads in part:

“We, the undersigned, reserve IDF commanders and retired police officers, who have fought in Israel’s military campaigns, know first-hand of the heavy and painful price exacted by wars.

“We fought bravely for the country in the hope that our children would live here in peace, but we got a sharp reality check [literal translation: ‘but reality slapped us in the face’ — jjg], and here we are again sending our children out onto the battlefield, watching them don their uniforms and combat vests and go out to fight in Operation Protective Edge…

“This is not a question of left or right. What we have here is an alternative option for resolving the conflict that is not based solely on bilateral negotiations with the Palestinians, which have failed time and again…

“We expect a show of courageous initiative and leadership from you. Lead – and we will stand behind you.”[15]

To make matters worse, Haaretz published a provocative cartoon last month implying that Netanyahu “was leading to ‘a disaster in Israel-US relationships on the scale of 9/11.”[16]

Recently, Princeton University professors have taken up arms. The Jewish Daily Forward reported,

“Princeton University professors have opened a new front in the battle over Israel on campus with a petition signed by 60 tenured faculty members calling for the university to divest from companies backing the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands.

“The explosive protest, the most powerful faculty-led effort at an Ivy League school in recent years, has triggered a wideranging debate over the Middle East conflict within the Jewish community at the bucolic New Jersey campus and sparked pro-Israel counter petitions from both students and faculty.”[17]

Max Weiss, a Jewish professor at the same institution, declared,

“The intention of our petition was to clarify that there is faculty support for divestment. There is already student activism which is operating on its own terms.”[18]

Beto O'Rourke
Beto O’Rourke

Certainly people across the globe are getting tired of black operations concocted by the Dreadful Few. Again, those Zionist monsters still have enormous power over politics, economics and even the culture, and the Beto O’Rourke case is a classic example.

O’Rourke, a young and promising U.S. representative for Texas’s 16th congressional district, made the mistake of voting against “special funding for Israel’s Iron Dome rocket defense system during the recent Gaza war.” The Jewish Daily Forward tells us what happened next:

“What is notable is how quickly the carrot followed the stick. It was almost a textbook case of how the establishment pro-Israel lobby works its magic — and a story not yet completed in early September, when The New Yorker magazine took note of what had happened to O’Rourke.

“In an in-depth report on the work of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the large Washington-based lobby, during the Gaza war, New Yorker writer Connie Bruck recounted the blasts that rained down on the El Paso congressman following his vote.

“The reactions, as Bruck reported, included a mass email blast labeling O’Rourke as ‘an anti-Israel congressman’ and denouncing his vote as ‘shameful.’ Critical local press coverage included a public comment by one of his own Jewish donors to the El Paso Times that in voting as he did, O’Rourke ‘chooses to side with the rocket launchers and terror tunnel builders’ of Hamas.

“‘He’s a good guy, but he didn’t know how the Jewish community would react,” said Daniel Cheifec, executive director of the Jewish Federation of El Paso. “Now he knows that this community is not going to be very happy if he screws up again.’

“O’Rourke, in fact, had no prior record of criticizing or voting against Israel. He did not even oppose more funding for the Iron Dome system. He only opposed rushing through the large appropriation with no debate as members of Congress were hurrying home for the summer recess when a more considered vote to boost the program was coming in October.” [19]

Rabbi Stephen Leon of Congregation B’Nai Zion declared,

“I really don’t understand how he [O’Rourke] makes his decision. It’s a great, great disappointment to the Jewish community here. We had meetings with him prior, to talk to him about the importance of Israel, and the way he voted makes very little sense.”[20]

O’Rourke explained his decision this way:

“I could not in good conscience vote for borrowing $225 million more to send to Israel, without debate and without discussion, in the midst of a war that has cost more than a thousand civilian lives already, too many of them children.”[21]

It was too late. Now the Dreadful Few are keeping an eye on bad O’Rourke:

“At O’Rourke’s office, emails flooded his inbox. The El Paso Jewish federation sent out an alert to members, urging them to take action.

“It contained O’Rourke’s contact information and a suggested sample letter. Another email, for which no one will now take responsibility, circulated among Jewish activists urging supporters not to re-elect him…

“A meeting was arranged with a group of 10 pro-Israel local leaders, including key members of AIPAC, along with heads of the local synagogues and of the Jewish federation. ‘We didn’t ask him to apologize for his vote,’ Stuart Schwartz, a former county commissioner and longtime AIPAC supporter, told the Forward.

“‘He is a very principled man, and he believed that his vote was justified under these circumstances.’ It was Schwartz who earlier denounced him for having sided with ‘the rocket launchers and terror tunnel builders.’

“‘We explained that it was particularly painful for us,’ Schwartz added, ‘and he understood there is a lot of emotion here.’

“After the first meeting came another and then a third one. In between, pro-Israel activists sent O’Rourke articles explaining Israel’s position.

“O’Rourke also met with the Israeli consul general to the Southwest, Meir Shlomo, and invited federation leaders to meet with him in Washington when they come to the capital for the Jewish federations’ General Assembly in November.”[22]

O’Rourke, of course, had to find a way to please his masters. He therefore did the next best thing: he

“doled out an anecdote about some Jewish ancestry in his family. Pro-Israel activists came out satisfied, attributing the vote against Iron Dome to a freshman’s mistake rather than to a pattern of anti-Israel voting. ‘A bump in the road,’ in the words of Schwartz.”[23]

There is no question that O’Rourke, like Chuck Hagel and others, will surrender to the powers that be. In fact, “O’Rourke will join a group of lawmakers going to Israel on a trip arranged by an AIPAC-affiliated organization.”[24]

O’Rourke is welcome to prostitute himself so that he could gain a little power, fame and money for a season. The man has bills to pay. He has a wife and three children. He probably knows that the Dreadful Few don’t believe in “diversity,” even though they force that system upon us all. He more than likely knows that you are either for the Dreadful Few or against them—no middle ground is allowed, no second opinion, and no questions asked.

Furthermore, O’Rourke surely does not want to play dice with the Dreadful Few precisely because they will go after his career. Perhaps O’Rourke has heard about serious academics such as Denis Rancourt and Norman Finkelstein and Steven Salaita and how the Dreadful Few literally wrecked their lives.

Perhaps O’Rourke was trembled when he heard that the Dreadful Few were keeping an eye on him. If this is all true, then he has good reasons to drop his weapon and surrender. He has good reason to prostitute himself. How else would he put food on the table after the incident?

But should that be a legitimate reason for people of reason to drop their spiritual and intellectual weapons and surrender as well? Should we all follow O’Rourke who lacks the moral and intellectual courage and who therefore ends up prostrating before the regime?

The answer is a resounding no. In one of his epistles, St. Paul made this interesting statement:

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:35-39).

Perhaps it is time to let the Dreadful Few know that we too are not for sale. Perhaps it is time to send them a message saying that they will never be able to buy us with the money they have stolen from the poor and needy.

Perhaps it is time to send them an ultimatum saying that until and unless they start allying with the truth, we will continue to make their lives miserable by proclaiming the truth.

“Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding” (Proverbs 23:23).
