Ben Carson’s nonsensical drivel about compromise #tcot #teaparty

Conservatives Won’t Win Elections by Refusing To Compromise – Dr. Ben Carson

http://m.townhall.com/columnists/drbencarson/2014/05/28/conservatives-wont-win-elections-by-refusing-to-compromise-n1844157

….”Perhaps an illustration is in order: Two armies are engaged in a war. Let’s call the good army that is trying to defend an entire society the red army and the bad army that is trying to invade and pillage society the blue army. The blue army occupies a superior strategic position and is composed of slightly more troops, putting the red army at a distinct disadvantage. Some in the red army feel that they are right and, therefore, should simply march directly into battle with the blue army because right always wins.

Fortunately, some members of the red army are wise and have a better plan. They send a battalion of troops to the base of the mountain occupied by the blue army to distract them while the vast majority of red troops approach the mountain from the backside. They descend upon the blue army by surprise, completely vanquishing them and winning the war. The decoy red battalion may have sustained some casualties, but in the long run, the war was won, and the entire society was saved.

I hope this illustration is useful in helping some to understand that achieving a critical mass of conservatives and RINOs (Republicans in Name Only, as some call them) in office will ensure that we can get non-activist Supreme Court and federal judges in place who respect the U.S. Constitution

RRD: My God man are you blind? Where have you been? Who is arguing that “right always wins”? Teapartiers are not concerned that their “leaders” have a different plan for fighting the enemy,they fear that they are going to surrender to the enemy or join them and fight with them against us, (or at best wage a half-hearted campaign.) They have good reason for their fears. Need I point out how many times the Republicans have betrayed us over and over again under Bush and later? This is not about tactics or strategy,it is about the fundamental question of whether the GOP leadership etal  will fight for what we believe in or simply use us as pawns to amass power for their own purposes.
To the headline I would respond by saying Republicans cannot expect our support if they betray us & compromise away our rights. Whether we should or should not support them  is another matter,it depends on how bad the particular candidate is & how great the risk of not supporting him is (in both the near & long term).
But condescension & straw men arguments will not persuade people.

IRS alleged to discriminate against Obama critics in awarding non-profit tax status in “Z Street” case

Did IRS illegally specially scrutinize “Israel-related organizations”?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/05/28/did-irs-illegally-specially-scrutinize-israel-related-organizations/

……” The complaint alleges that during [a telephone] conversation, [IRS] Agent [Diane] Gentry told Z Street’s counsel that she had two major concerns about approving the application …: first,that the organization engaged in “advocacy” activities that are not permitted under Section 501(c)(3); and second, that the IRS had special concerns about applications from organizations whose activities relate to Israel, and whose positions with respect to Israel contradict the current policies of the U.S. Government. According to the complaint, Agent Gentry told Z Street’s counsel that the IRS carefully scrutinizes all Section 501(c)(3) applications that are connected with Israel, and that “these cases are being sent to a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization’s activities contradict the Administration’s public policies.” …

British EU candidate arrested for “racial harassment” for quoting Winston Churchill’s anti-Islamic views

Election candidate arrested over Churchill speech – Telegraph

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/10792895/Election-candidate-arrested-over-Churchill-speech.html

Paul Weston a member of Great Britain’s Liberty Party was arrested both for delivering a speech in public and on charges of “suspicion of racial harassment”.
The former charge apparently derives from a requirement to have some kind of permit before speaking with a blow horn.
The latter charge was apparently because Weston dared to quote Winston Churchill’s book The River War in which Churchill made derogatory remarks about Islam :

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property — either as a child, a wife, or a concubine — must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.

Where is the incitement racial or otherwise? Certainly Churchill overstates since there are many Muslims to whom these charges are inapplicable ( indeed there are those among Muslims who fight against these evils.) But is this passage so wildly inaccurate when leveled at the governments of Saudi Arabia, Pakistan or Iran? Do we not witness rampant misogyny ,backwardness, & fanaticism in the Islamic World on a daily basis? Have we not seen mobs of BRITISH Muslims (literally) screaming for Danish blood with chants of “die die Denmark” in response to the cartoons ridiculing Mohammed? I myself have posted numerous examples of these evils on my blog.
In any event the word incitement has an actual legal meaning in the U.S.: speech whose purpose can be objectively shown to be to persuade people to commit violent criminal acts in the here & NOW –denouncing a religion is not incitement . Calling on your audience to commit murder IS. (whether or not the call was motivated by racism or religion).
If you use your right of free speech to condemn Islam ( or Judaism or Christianity) you are not guilty of “incitement” because some fanatic decides to murder you .
It is the fanatic who must be stopped, not appeased.
But this grasp of free speech has been thrown out the window in Europe ,where instead of protecting the free speech rights of Weston ,they do the work of his critics by seeking to silence him by force.

Author’s note: Nothing I say should be taken of as even a semi- endorsement of Weston ‘s beliefs beyond what I have stated,(which concern the Churchill quote) I do not know of ,nor do I endorse his other statements & for all I know they may be loathsome to me . But nothing in the Churchill quote justifies imprisonment & if Weston made some other comment that is a genuine incitement to mob violence it is not mentioned in the article.

The Times of Israel gives itself over to Israel bashing filth

Dutch patience with the Netanyahu government is running out | Jaap Hamburger | Ops & Blogs | The Times of Israel

http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/dutch-patience-with-the-netanyahu-government-is-running-out/?utm_source=The+Times+of+Israel+Daily+Edition&utm_campaign=27675e3a5e-2013_07_14&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_adb46cec92-27675e3a5e-54475017

….”But it does share a point of view — and quite fairly, in my opinion — which sees Israel as by far the strongest party in the conflict, creating more responsibilities and possibilities, more so than the Palestinians, to ensure a peace agreement. And, above all, Israel is an occupying force, which binds it to international obligations to end the occupation.”…

If you wish to grasp why Objectivists use the word altruism as a by word for evil this is a textbook case of what they mean by that word. The strong are to make “peace” with genocidal maniacs because the genocidal maniacs are (thank god) weaker than their targets. I have no doubt that a similar view is shared by psychopathic scum in our own country,indeed I recall that once several years ago on the Tavis Smiley show Rep.Charlie Rangel characterized the war in Iraq as a case of the Pentagon “picking fights with nations weaker than our own”. Of all the various arguments against going to war in Iraq that is one of the most bizarre.

Why is this depraved filth being published in a periodical carrying the name of Israel? One cannot,(not “should not”) ,CANNOT make peace with those who are determined to wipe out your country. One can permit them to slaughter your citizens while pretending that good is evil & evil good as this brazen psychopath does in this piece of intellectually dishonest garbage ,but one cannot make “peace” with such barbarians. For the record I supported the withdrawal from Gaza on the deluded hope that peace might somehow result. Unlike the various frauds (Friedman etal ) I was sincere ,they professed to wish to “see” what would happen,they did,& the more the Palestinians demonstrate that they do not want peace the more brazenly they & Israel’s other enemies become. Sadly given our insane nihilistic world none of this is at all surprising to me any longer.

How Microsoft handed the #NSA access to encrypted messages #tcot #tlot #ocra

http://m.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jul/11/microsoft-nsa-collaboration-user-data

……” Blanket orders from the secret surveillance court allow these communications to be collected without an individual warrant if the NSA operative has a 51% belief that the target is not a US citizen and is not on US soil at the time. Targeting US citizens does require an individual warrant, but the NSA is able to collect Americans’ communications without a warrant if the target is a foreign national located
overseas. Since Prism’s existence became public, Microsoft & the other companies listed on the NSA documents as providers have denied all knowledge of the program & insisted that the intelligence agencies do not have back doors into their systems. Microsoft’s latest marketing campaign, launched in April emphasizes its commitment to privacy with the slogan: “Your privacy is our priority.” Similarly, Skype’s privacy policy states: “Skype is committed to respecting your privacy & the confidentiality of your personal data, traffic data & communications content.” But internal NSA newsletters, marked top secret, suggest the co-operation between the intelligence community & the companies is deep and ongoing. The latest documents come from the NSA’s Special Source Operations (SSO) division, described by Snowden as the “crown jewel” of the agency. It is responsible for all programs aimed at US communications systems through corporate partnerships such as Prism. The files show that the NSA became concerned about the interception of encrypted chats on Microsoft’s Outlook.com portal from the moment the company began testing the service in July last year. Within five months, the documents explain, Microsoft and the FBI had come up with a solution that allowed the NSA to circumvent encryption on Outlook.com chats A newsletter entry dated 26 December 2012 states: “MS [Microsoft], working with the FBI, developed a
surveillance capability to deal” with the issue. “These solutions were successfully tested and went live 12 Dec 2012.” Two months later, in February this year, Microsoft officially launched the Outlook.com portal. Another newsletter entry stated that NSA already had pre-encryption access to Outlook email. “For Prism collection against Hotmail, Live, & Outlook.com emails will be unaffected because Prism collects this data prior to encryption.” Microsoft’s co-operation was not limited to Outlook.com. An entry dated 8 April 2013 describes how the company worked “for many months” with the FBI – which acts as the liaison between the intelligence agencies and Silicon Valley on Prism – to allow Prism access without separate authorization to its cloud storage service SkyDrive. The document describes how this access “means that analysts will no longer have to make a special request to SSO for this – a process step that many analysts may not have known about”. The NSA explained that “this new capability will result in a much more complete and timely collection response”. It continued: “This success is the result of the FBI working for many months with Microsoft to get this tasking & collection solution established.” A separate entry identified another area for collaboration. “The FBI Data Intercept Technology Unit (DITU) team is working with Microsoft to understand an additional feature in Outlook.com which allows users to create email aliases, which may affect our tasking processes.” The NSA has devoted substantial efforts in the last two years to work with Microsoft to ensure increased access to Skype, which has an estimated 663 million global users. One document boasts that Prism monitoring of Skype video production has roughly tripled since a new capability was added on 14 July 2012. “The audio portions of these sessions have been processed correctly all along, but without the accompanying video. Now, analysts will have the complete ‘picture’,” it says. Eight months before being bought by Microsoft, Skype joined the Prism program in February 2011. According to the NSA documents, work had begun on smoothly integrating Skype into Prism in November 2010, but it was not until 4 February 2011 that the company was served with a directive to comply signed by the attorney general. The NSA was able to start tasking Skype communications the following day, and collection began on 6 February. “Feedback indicated that a collected Skype call was very clear and the metadata looked complete,” the document stated, praising the co-operation between NSA teams and the FBI. “Collaborative teamwork was the key to the successful addition of another provider to the Prism system.” ACLU technology expert Chris Soghoian said the revelations would surprise many Skype users. “In the past, Skype made affirmative promises to users about their inability to perform wiretaps,” he said.”It’s hard to square Microsoft’s secret collaboration with the NSA with its high-profile efforts to compete on privacy with Google.” The information the NSA collects from Prism is routinely shared with both the FBI and CIA. A 3 August 2012 newsletter describes how the NSA has recently expanded sharing with the other two agencies. The NSA, the entry reveals, has even automated the sharing of aspects of Prism, using software that “enables our partners to see which selectors [search terms] the National Security Agency has tasked to Prism”. The document continues: “The FBI and CIA then can request a copy of Prism collection of any selector…” As a result, the author notes: “these two activities underscore the point that Prism is a team sport!”…..

Does this idiocy merit a response? /Answering Michael Lind’s Question: Why Is No Country Libertarian?

http://www.openmarket.org/2013/06/13/answering-michael-linds-question-why-is-no-country-libertarian/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Openmarketorg+%28OpenMarket.org%29

…..”Why are there no libertarian countries? If libertarians are correct in claiming that they understand how best to organize a modern society, how is it that not a single country in the world in the early twenty-first century is organized along libertarian lines?

“…….

RRD: “If this women’s suffrage stuff is so great how is that no nation on earth has ever given women the right to vote before now” ;that or words to that effect were no doubt spoken by an anti-suffrage Swede in 1718,similar “arguments” were made about freedom from the monarchy,religious freedom,emancipation from slavery a reduction of anti-Semitism & hatred of gays,& virtually every other right or positive development  that “civilized” countries now take for granted. It is hardly rational to say “this is not,& is without precedent ,therefore this should not be”. And is this same argument to be made against gay marriage by Mr.Lind? Or does he simply apply this ludicrous standard to economic freedom? No doubt Lind would oppose the promethean who first seized control of fire on the grounds that it was unprecedented. And what is this “21st century” drivel? Or are we back to the:”that which comes later is automatically progress & therefore good” absurdity? Was Nazi Germany an “improvement” on the Weimar Republic? Was the end of reconstruction and the return of lynchings an “improvement” on reconstruction? What of the dark ages? Was the rise of Islamic fundamentalism an improvement on the Shah’s Iran?
Note that this argument is never made by liberals against their own proposals,quite the contrary,if their proposals fail disastrously ( like the  housing projects) it is simply evidence that we need more “bold persistent experimentation” not that there is anything fundamentally wrong with their  proposals.
Nor is it true that the repeated failure of socialist states proves that socialism can never work. It proves that socialist regimes have failed repeatedly & therefore implies that such proposals should be looked at with skepticism at the least ,but in and of itself alone it does not prove that no valid argument now or in the future can ever be made for socialism.

But if Lind’s nonsense is the best argument that can be made ,then the intellectual battle against capitalism is dead & the enemies of freedom can only prevail through ignorance & inertia.

Vice Principal “beside the point”,whether a child’s throat would be slit /7th grader saves classmate,is punished for it. #twisters #ocra

7th grader saves classmate from bully with knife, is punished for ‘playing hero’ | The Daily Caller http://dailycaller.com/2013/06/03/7th-grader-saves-classmate-from-bully-with-knife-is-punished-for-playing-hero/ …..”Briar MacLean, was reprimanded by school officials for potentially saving the life of one of his fellow classmates. After defending the victim from an armed student, the vice principal chastised MacLean, saying that he should have gotten a teacher involved instead of acting quickly. MacLean told the National Post that he was in a morning class in his middle school in Calgary when he saw a bully antagonizing another student. “He put him in a headlock, and I saw that,” he said. The fight escalated when MacLean “heard the flick, and I heard them say there was a knife.” MacLean instinctively jumped and pushed the bully away from the other student and then continued about his day unfazed. “…. ….”The vice principal called MacLean’s mother, Leah O’Donnell, saying that her son was involved in an incident where “he decided to ‘play hero’ and jump in.” The vice principal added that the school did not “condone heroics,” and that the proper course of action would have been to get a school administrator to handle it. O’Donnell said, “I asked: ‘In the time it would have taken him to go get a teacher, could that kid’s throat have been slit?’ She said yes, but that’s beside the point.”

….. RRD: Somehow I doubt the child whose throat was slit or the child’s mother would agree. I have become cynical enough that I seriously wonder if the Vice Principal would not have been pleased by the child’s death. This reminds me of a surreal incident from my youth. I was frequently bullied when young,following the advice of Michael Jackson I simply decided to “rise above the fray”,and “beat it”,& “not to let it get to me” & all the other idiotic things that clueless, delusional adults tell children to do when they are young. So when a bully threatened me because “he did not like me” , I told him that I simply refused to fight him,and turned and walked away…..and was tackled to the ground & beaten up. I called for help,no help was forthcoming,so I defended myself & was THEN lectured by the teacher when she got around to intervening because “it does not matter who started it” ,because “fighting is always wrong”. I pointed out the absurdity of that cliche, pointing out that self-defense was a legal right & noted that I DID everything that I was supposed to do INCLUDING calling for help. She said,much as this clown above did, that it “didn’t matter”. She then ordered me,the victim,to shake hands with my attacker to show that there were “no hard feelings” . “No hard feelings?” I said “Of course there are hard feelings ,HE ATTACKED ME!”. At this point my bully then put on his best “all innocent” routine and graciously offered to put aside our (non-existent) dispute. Nor did I find the “boys will be boys” attitude of the (male) Principal helpful either. “Boys get into these scraps….” But I noted “we” did not “get into” a “scrap”,HE attacked me, I wanted nothing to do with him & simply wanted to be left alone yet he was continuing to bully me. To this the principal essentially told me to beat up my bully instead & told me essentially that I was on my own. I said “What is this? A school or a war zone?”. None of this made any difference as the bully remained a bully. If this is the type of insanity that goes on in American schools in a fairly reddish state, one can only imagine what madness goes on in other schools. Now we see this madness writ large both in Canada & frankly in the blame the victim mentality of the “peace process”.

#antisemite Roseanne Barr defends fellow #antisemite Gilad Atzmon #antisemitism #jcot #tjot #tcot #ccot

RRD: First a note to any anti-semitic trolls out there who are reading this : I am not Alan Dershowitz nor am I like the well intentioned (but naive ) souls who have argued with this creature Barr. I don’t debate with scum. I won’t respond to those who spit on me & curse me by asking them “Why do you say these hateful things” . I am not “polite” & I am certainly not naive enough to give you “the benefit of the doubt”. You are scum: I know it,& you know it in your pus -filled little souls & I will not waste one minute of my life “arguing” with you. If you comment your comment will never show up. If you Tweet me your Tweet will be ignored & you will be blocked. Threats will be reported to the police. Now to the article. Roseanne: It’s ‘bullsh*t’ that Gilad Atzmon is a Holocaust denier; Atzmon lashes out at ‘Zio-trolls’ | Twitchy http://twitchy.com/2013/05/09/roseanne-its-bullsht-that-gilad-atzmon-is-a-holocaust-denier-atzmon-lashes-out-at-zio-trolls/ Barr herself has previously warned us of something called “Jewish Mind Control” Vile: Roseanne Barr warns against the horrors of ‘Jewish mind control’ | Twitchy http://twitchy.com/2012/08/23/vile-roseanne-barr-warns-against-the-horrors-of-jewish-mind-control/ Barr need not worry, after all one cannot control that which does not exist . I have written about this putrid scum Atzmon before(fn1) . Gilad Atzmon is a rabidly anti-semitic cretin whose vile “The Wandering Who” was applauded by his fellow travelers in Jew Hatred Richard Falk & John Mearsheimer (fn2) . So repellent are Atzmon’s ravings that many anti-zionists have denounced him(fn3) This has not stopped the anti-semites at the BBC from welcoming him on to one of their anti-semitic shows.(fn4) ( You may note that I am using the word “anti-semite” frequently,lest these anti-semites be able to say that they have intimidated me from calling them out as the scum that they are). Barr is not intelligent enough to create this pose of feigned innocence & feigned outrage which ANTI-SEMITES (such as the anti-semites Falk,Gilad,Mearsheimer & Barr) have adopted as their latest tactic,she is merely emulating her more cunning associates. As for the poor martyred Atzmon here is a sampling of his bile: Gilad Atzmon: “It is not fair for the sea to have Jews thrown in to it” – YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?client=mv-google&hl=en≷=US&v=0RS1MaQ1d_Q&nomobile=1 The protocols of Gilad Atzmon – Israel Culture, Ynetnews http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4147243,00.html ……… ”

This process institutionalizes the Jewish suffering and doesn’t impress me. I heard about Holocaust deniers who were forced to sit in jail just because they wouldn’t fall for the Holocaust narrative as described by the Zionists. Holocaust denial laws are the worst – they prevent Jews from understanding their own history. “Take the death marches issue, for example. It’s clear to everyone that at the beginning of the war the Nazis wanted to clear the Reich of Jews. If that’s the case, why did the lead the Jews at the end of the war into the Reich in what people refer to as ‘the death marches’? If the Nazis wanted. to destroy the Jews, the last thing they should have done was lead them to Germany.” “Jews were no longer a labor force. They were too weak and therefore died in the marches. Jews say the Nazis wanted to conceal evidence, but that’s an idiotic response because the Nazis left Jews behind in the camps.” “According to one interesting answer, the Jews preferred to stay with the Germans than fall into the hands of the Russians. There was a typhus outbreak and the assumption was that if the Jews were taken to Germany, the Americans and Britons could deal with the disease. “So the death marches were actually humane. This is a very consistent ruling.”……….. …………..”Both Nazi Germany and Israel are driven by ethnocentrism. They are both racist countries with a tendency to expand. Israel and the Nazi movement are similar in many categories. But since Israel is a democratic country, each of its citizens is responsible for its crimes, while in Nazi Germany only the Führer and his party members were responsible for the war crimes. “Moreover, the Zionist movement was born before the Nazi movement. The Nazis disappeared, but the Zionists remain – and today they are even stronger than America.

Israeli press reported this evening that French gunman Mohamed Merah had been on a trip to Israel in the past. According to the report, Merah’s passport had Israeli stamps in it. The purpose of his visit is unknown. Israeli analysts suspect he was either trying to visit the Palestinian territories or preparing for a terror attack. However, I won’t rule out the possibility that Merah was actually trained by Israeli forces. Marah may have conducted a false flag operation. By way of deception is, after all, the Mossad’s motto.

” ….. BBC World Service hosts antisemite Gilad Atzmon | BBC Watch http://bbcwatch.org/2012/10/14/bbc-world-service-hosts-antisemite-gilad-atzmon/ …..”

Here is a recent article from 972 Magazine referring to Atzmon’s book ‘The Wandering Jew’: “Atzmon is a Holocaust denier; he has previously asked “if the Nazis ran a death factory in Auschwitz-Birkenau, why would the Jewish prisoners join them at the end of the war?” In this book […..] Atzmon writes on page 179 “we, for instance, can envisage a horrific situation in which an Israeli so-called ‘pre- emptive’ nuclear attack on Iran that escalates into a disastrous nuclear war, in which tens of millions of people perish. I guess that amongst the survivors of such a nightmare scenario, some may be bold enough to argue that ‘Hitler might have been right after all.’ On page 27 he argues “Throughout the centuries, some Jewish bankers have gathered the reputation of backers and financers of wars and even one communist revolution.

”………… RRD: Note that Dershowitz links to the sources of some of the quotes at anti-semitic blogs. I will not drive traffic to the blog of this creature Atzmon or to others of his ilk so I will not link to them myself. The numbers in parentheses are the page numbers from the book “The Wandering Who. Why are John Mearsheimer and Richard Falk Endorsing a Blatantly Anti-Semitic Book? by Alan Dershowitz | November 4, 2011 http://www.newrepublic.com/node/97030/print ……”

Lest there be any doubt about Atzmon’s anti-Semitic credentials, listen to his self -description in the book itself. He boasts about “drawing many of my insights from a man who … was an anti-Semite as well as a radical misogynist” and a hater of “almost everything that fails to be Aryan masculinity” (89 -90). He declares himself a “proud, self -hating Jew” (54), writes with “contempt” of “the Jew in me” (94), and describes himself as “a strong opponent of … Jewish-ness” (186). “……….. ·….“[W]e must begin to take the accusation that the Jewish people are trying to control the world very seriously.”…..

American Jews do try to control the world, by proxy.”… Atzmon in The Wandering Who ?: …..”He calls the recent credit crunch “the Zio-punch” (22) and says it was not “a Jewish conspiracy” because “it was all in the open” (30).”…. ….”Paul Wolfowitz, Rahm Emmanuel, and other members of “the Jewish elite” remain abroad instead of moving to “Zion” because they “have proved far more effective for the Zionist cause by staying where they are” (19).”…. …..”The American media “failed to warn the American people of the enemy within” because of money (27).”…. ….“With Fagin and Shylock in mind Israeli barbarism and organ trafficking seem to be just other events in an endless hellish continuum.”…. …..“The Homo Zionicus quickly became a mass murderer, detached from any recognised form of ethical thinking and engaged in a colossal crime against humanity.”….. …..“[T]o be a Jew is a deep commitment that goes far beyond any legal or moral order” (20) and this commitment “pulls more and more Jews into an obscure, dangerous and unethical fellowship” (21).”….. ….”If Iran and Israel fight a nuclear war that kills tens of millions of people, “some may be bold enough to argue that ‘Hitler might have been right after all’” (179).”…. ·….“It took me years to accept that the Holocaust narrative, in its current form, doesn’t make any historical sense. … If, for instance, the Nazis wanted the Jews out of their Reich (Judenrein—free of Jews), or even dead, as the Zionist narrative insists, how come they marched hundreds of thousands of them back into the Reich at the end of the war?”… ….“[E]ven if we accept the Holocaust as the new Anglo -American liberal-democratic religion, we must allow people to be atheists.”… ….” Children should be allowed to question, as he did, “how the teacher could know that these accusations of Jews making Matza out of young Goyim’s blood were indeed empty or groundless” (185).”…. …. “The Holocaust religion is probably as old as the Jews themselves” (153).”….. ….”The history of Jewish persecution is a myth, and if there was any persecution the Jews brought it on themselves (175, 182).”…. ….. “[I]n order to promote Zionist interests, Israel must generate significant anti-Jewish sentiment. Cruelty against Palestinian civilians is a favourite Israeli means of achieving this aim.”…. From On Anti-Semitism http://web.archive.org/web/20040114024643/http:/www.gilad.co.uk/Anti%20Semi.html ….. “Jews may have managed to drop their God, but they have maintained goy -hating and racist ideologies at the heart of their newly emerging secular political identity. This explains why some Talmudic goy -hating elements have been transformed within the Zionist discourse into genocidal practices.”…. The Wandering Who ?: ….”The “Judaic God” described in Deuteronomy 6:10 -12 “is an evil deity, who leads his people to plunder, robbery and theft” (120). Atzmon explains that “Israel and Zionism … have instituted the plunder promised by the Hebrew God in the Judaic holy scriptures” (121).”… ….” The moral of the Book of Esther is that Jews “had better infiltrate the corridors of power” if they wish to survive (158).”…. …. “Many of us including me tend to equate Israel to Nazi Germany . Rather often I myself join others and argue that Israelis are the Nazis of our time. I want to take this opportunity to amend my statement. Israelis are not the Nazis of our time and the Nazis were not the Israelis of their time. Israel, is in fact far worse than Nazi Germany and the above equation is simply meaningless and misleading.”…. …..”He claims that “robbery and hatred is imbued in Jewish modern political ideology on both the left and the right” (123). And like other anti-Semites, Atzmon is obsessed in the book with Jewish names. It was Jews, such as Wolfowitz and Libby, who pushed the United States into war against Iraq in the “interests” of “their beloved Jewish state” (26). “How is it that America failed to restrain its Wolfowitzes ?” Atzmon asks (27). Likewise, according to Atzmon’s book, it was “Jewish bankers,” financiers, economists, writers, and politicians such as Greenspan, Levy, Aaronovitch, Saban, Friedman, Schiff, and Rothschild who have caused the economic and political problems of the world, ranging from the Bolshevik revolution to the wars of the 20th century to the current economic troubles (27,194). And like other classic anti-Semites, Atzmon doesn’t simply fault the individual Jews he names; he concocts a worldwide Jewish conspiracy motivated by a “ruthless Zio-driven” (27) “Jewish ideology” (69) that finds its source in “the lethal spirit” (122) of the Hebrew Bible. “…………. …” Leiter [RRD: An Atzmon apologist who defends Atzmon from those critics who have read the book despite his having not read the book himself] should read the book, especially pages 175 -176, before leaping to Atzmon’s defense. There Atzmon reflects “that 65 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, we must be entitled to start asking questions. We should ask for historical evidence and arguments rather than follow a religious narrative that is sustained by political pressure and laws.

”… RRD: John Mearsheimer co-author of “The Israel Lobby” — has praised Atzmon for being a “Universalist” & for being a foe of racism & for being a friend of hunanity. (fn5). In a sane society Atzmon would be regarded as a crank. Since our world is insane he will probably be awarded the Noble Peace Prize. Footnotes: fn1.
