Why do They Always Target the Jews?

 

Well, the reason is in the numbers. The Egyptians faced a slave revolt if they did not allow Jews along with non-Jewish individuals to leave as Moses insisted. After a number of plagues, ten to be exact, the Jews were readied for their departure. Well, Pharaoh was not so ready for their departure. What we do not hear about the departure of the Jews from Egypt is that it was a ruse used to set the Jews up for one mighty massacre and the end of those people from history. The Bible tells us the story from a Jewish perspective without inspecting the other potential matters. Why did Pharaoh allow the Jews to leave? First, they need to wonder whether or not Pharaoh was going to use the Jews as an example to keep the remaining slaves (workers) in line and fearful of Pharaoh. Was it actually Pharaoh’s idea to allow the Jews and those supporting their efforts to gather and separate themselves from the rest of the workforce and then slaughter them out in the open and bring Moses and a few others from the leadership back in chains to teach everyone what happens when you mess with Pharaoh? It might have actually worked just as described except for some timely divine intervention. Instead, Pharaoh returned with almost his entire army which left with him to perform his butchery of those upstart Jews dead and left at the bottom of the Red Sea (Sea of Reeds is a modern and potentially incorrect translation). Pharaoh had to explain where his Royal Guards and elite forces were as he left with thousands in his army and returned with maybe fifty top commanders who all spoke of the raw power of the Jewish deity, Hashem, and the splitting of the sea and its closure upon the entire body of their troops. For all we can fathom, anti-Semitism may have been sewn into the psyche of mankind that fateful day when Pharaoh probably had no greater hate than for the slave revolt that defeated him, the most powerful of mankind, defeated by unarmed slaves whose only true weapon was their faith in Hashem.

 

History is filled with page after page of hatred for Jews. The Bible records much of the revelations of how Jews were particularly despised, though it does downplay such. Then there is the Purim story where Haman almost succeeded in having the Kingdom of Persia massacre the Jewish People. It just might have worked had the Queen of Persia not been a Jewess. The Greeks outlawed the reading of the Torah, circumcision, and numerous other specifics which were holy to the Jews and we practiced them in private. The Roman Empire was the next in line with a plan to wipe these pesky Jews from the face of the earth. It worked just as planned with the Carthaginians and who knows how many others. This method was based on the idea that there could not be a people without their having a homeland. The Romans would disperse the subject people throughout their quite sizeable empire denying them even sufficient people to form even the smallest of a core group. But the Jews had some secret weapons. Their peoplehood was not as dependent upon the land as it was around the Torah and worship of Hashem. As long as they could find ten Jewish males of adult age, they could perform every required law in Torah. Even the Romans were powerless to prevent ten men meeting for a singular purpose. What the Romans did not know was their dispersion of the Jewish People became their protection against genocide. No longer could a regional power or virtually any power be able to destroy the Jewish People as they were spread too far and wide. Never again throughout history to the modern era have all the Jews come under a single power or alliance.

 

But as for why have the Jews so often been the all but perfect victims, that is a matter of logistics. First off, the Jews have and will probably continue to be a small percentage of the people in any nation. Second is the problem that anti-Jewish animus has always existed even if only amongst the people on the edges of a society. Hitler proved how far one can succeed by simply taking the disgruntled during bad times and turning them into a unified force against an enemy for which they already were prepared to hate, or at least had no really positive feelings towards. Add in the centuries of anti-Semitic hatred found throughout the history of Europe and Christianity as well as the anti-Semitic founding of Islam and you have a ready-made excuse for anti-Semitism throughout most of the world. Add in modern telecommunications and a further spread of anti-Jewish animus is ready to be hatched even in those regions where there is no history of anti-Semitism. There are a few groups within which it will be difficult to inculcate an anti-Semitic core of feelings, and that is amongst the Buddhists as hating any creature is an anathema to them. Still, the seeds of Jew hatred have truly now been spread worldwide and that is one thing which will never be undone for as long as humanity rules this orb.

 

But why the Jews? Well, since the final revolt against the Romans, which was a very long time ago, there has been almost no large, organized Jewish force and definitely not a Jewish army until the founding of Israel. Part of the worldwide, specifically in the United Nations and Europe, animosity towards Israel is partially a transference of their already existent anti-Semitism and the rest is mostly piling-on. The problem is this “piling-on” has led to instilling anti-Semitic seeds in these nations and many have jumped on the idea that the reason for their problems is easy, it’s the Jews who have subverted their noble leaders’ efforts. With the mainstream world media in a constant dripping of anti-Israel articles, conspiracy theories and lies, the Jews amongst the nations, Israel, has become the new World Jewish Conspiracy upon whom to heap all blame for anything which does not proceed according to plan. Your new five-year economic revitalization plan failed to reach any of its goals, it was because of Jewish support for Israel stealing all the profits as the Jew sent all your profits and our monies to that Jew country, Israel. The temptation to play on what have become the worldwide fears that the Jews are out to control the planet, an idea which was put into writing by the Tsars of Russia with their falsity titled, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a conspiracy theory which refuses to die. Actually, it has come to have an unexpected (unless you are as paranoid as I) life of its own with increasing circulation worldwide in our oh-so-sophisticated-modern-societies. The one other item which has never managed to escape every age which makes up history is how the current age is so much closer to universal acceptance. This theme parallels with the theme of superiority of the modern age which has been touted also since Pharaoh and likely before. Every age is the most modern, as it is the now, and is assumed to be the most advanced, the most moral, the most humane and the one which will rid the planet of hate. But first, there will be the calls from the periphery, but first we need to be rid of the Jew if we ever hope to be safe and happy. This too has been part of every age almost from the beginning of time and easily reaching back into prehistory.

 

But why the Jews? Easy, we dress and identify differently and are a very small but dynamic minority. Further, throughout the ages, Jews have been amongst the most successful in business and numerous other ventures. This means that you get the largest return on your efforts stealing the wealth of the Jews. But probably the biggest other reason is the Jews have been the leaders in the movements for pacification of society, gun control and all the other means of leaving people defenseless. This also has left the Jews mostly defenseless. Add in their making up less than 0.2% of world population. This means for every thousand people in the world, you would expect to find two who are Jews. But as almost half the Jews reside in Israel, this means that the Jews in the rest of the world come closer to 0.1% of their populations. In Nazi Germany at the initial period while Hitler was still rising to power, the Jews were less than one-percent of the population of Germany. The majority of Germans had likely never knowingly met a Jew and thus had no knowledge of Jews or Judaism other than the government propaganda, and through the ages also the propaganda from the Church, both the Roman Catholic Pope and the numerous Protestant denominations as well. The Church became one of, if not the, progenitor of European and Western anti-Semitism. Following in those footsteps, the Protestant Reformation took their anti-Catholic driving force and simply added that to their persecution of the Jews. The Church and the various Protestant denominations seemed to compete one with the other to prove their being the most pious because they had executed, dispossessed and otherwise belittled their Jews the most. The bar had been set quite high after the onset of the Spanish Inquisition.

 

Then came the real proof that the world was being decided on the backs of the Jews. This is not to imply or otherwise say that the Jews had any say whatsoever in these events. We are referring to the Crusades as a response to the Islamic capture of Jerusalem and the Holy Lands. This was a period where the Christians and the Muslims both agreed upon one basic premise, namely that the Jews were assisting the other side. When the Christians would, say, retake Jerusalem they would execute and torture Muslims and Jews and then when the Muslims retook Jerusalem, they murdered and tortured Christians and Jews. This was a constant which plagued the Jews who remained in the Holy Lands. Fortunately, quite possibly a gift from Hashem, the Romans had dispersed the Jews centuries before guaranteeing their continuation in spite of the executions and other acts in the Holy Lands. This dispersion would actually serve to preserve the Jewish faith rather than destroying it. In the ensuing centuries both the Christian world and the Islamic world would brutalize, murder, torture, expel and force to wear identifying clothing upon the Jews wherever they resided. The initial demand for Jews to wear a yellow marking upon their outerwear was under Caliph Umar II in the early 8th century. The practice was reissued and reinforced by Caliph Al-Mutawakkil (847–861), subsequently remaining in force for centuries. This puts to lie that the Muslim world only learned how to be anti-Semitic from Europeans after World War II. Islam has had anti-Semitism ingrained in their Quran and in the Prophet Muhammad’s acts when alive making the killing of Jews to be a holy act fully endorsed by the Prophet and the Quran. Many modern Muslims believe that should they die murdering a Jew then they are guaranteed to go straight to heaven where they will receive wonderful rewards. This has worked to make the Islamic world very actively anti-Semitic.

 

There were those who mistakenly believed that when the horrors of the Holocaust and its complete gravity of the Nazi murder mechanisms became known, that this would drive the evil of anti-Semitism from the human race permanently. As it turns out, the neo-Nazis refused to believe the reality claiming that the Holocaust was a Jewish invention to take money from Germany and all the gullible people who would sympathize with the Jews and reinforce their lies. In the Islamic world this became the prevalent position with one twist, that this was used to force Israel onto Arab lands. Many an Arab leader would complain that the Europeans should have provided a place for the Jews likely carved from Germany. They are unswayed by the factual argument that the Jewish State of Israel had been planned at the San Remo Conference and incorporated into the Mandate System by a unanimous vote of the League of Nations soon after World War I. The anti-Semitism of the Islamic world is a very virulent form of the hate and has spread across the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Arab nations and has spread beyond the Islamic world catching on largely by far leftist groups from Asia, specifically the Communist revolutionaries. The rise of Islamic immigrants across most of Europe has taken the hatred of anti-Semitism out of the closet and returned it to center stream Europe. This is also starting to produce a similar rise in the United States.

 

With the fact about the truth of the warning from the Passover Service that in every generation there will be one who rises against us. This one does not mean the lone crazy but refers to a person who sits in a powerful position with sufficient influence and inroads to the ruling elite to inflict anti-Semitic acts against a greater number of Jews than if they acted largely alone. This admonition has proven to actually have been wise council to have passed down the generations. The unfortunate part is that too many Jews either have never heard this caution or simply believe that the admonition had become history as anti-Semitism was dead. Well, pure, unadulterated and heated anti-Semitic hatred took a rest or even paused for a moment. Most American Jews are just waking to the fact that the demonic anti-Semites are back and show massive confusion on how such could happen. The religious point to the leftist policies of their assimilated brothers and sisters. Those leftists blame it on the religious claiming if they would simply blend into society, then there would be no problem as everyone would accept them because such would make them the good Jews. The second argument is so backwards in its logic, reasoning and conclusions, that we will allow the history to prove that point. During the time of Haman and the Persian Empire, the Jews Haman desired to murder resided in the main cities of the Persian Empire and were completely assimilated while those religious Jews had returned to the Holy Lands and rebuilt the Temple. Those Jews were mostly off of the Haman radar or were included simply to prevent any return of the Jew to Persian lands. The Greeks went the opposite way attempting to force the Jews to assimilate. The Torah explains that the Jews are a stiff-necked people which spoiled the assimilation plan of the Greeks as the majority of Jews remained and did not take up celebrating Greek holidays nor took up Greek practices and idolatry. As explained, the Romans gave destroying the Jewish People their best shot and likely saved the Jews in the future. Beyond Rome we have to tell the truth, half the Jews resided in the MENA regions which came under Islamic world and the other half remained under European rulers. Despite the fact that both sides suffered similar difficulties, many insist on arguing that the Jews had never been persecuted by the Muslims as Islam is the religion of peace. That is only true when the Muslims control a land and have cleansed them from any non-Islamic interests. This rendition of commentary on Islam is what is found in virtually any history or other book which speaks of Islam as the European historians simply accepted whatever their Islamic guides told them and thus Islam was given a complete pass by the majority of European historians. They simply did absolutely no actual in-depth, in-person research as they had no desire to spend time in the deserts of the MENA nations. Whatever they were told, despite it being a complete whitewash of the brutality the Jews faced and, in its stead, described a perfectly civilized people living in peace.

 

After World War II, anti-Semitism was briefly relegated into the shadows and was largely a plague on the far right. These were the neo-Nazis and the White Supremacists. This has been changing at a consistent rate as these far-right anti-Semites have started to be outpaced by those anti-Semites from the far-left and moving ever closer to being a position of the left. This is a new form of anti-Semitism which professes its innocence from being so labelled because their target does not consist of Jews per se, the target of their acrimonies and enmities is Israel, Israelis and the Zionists who love her. This is but a small smoke-screen behind which they can hide the truth of their hate, it is the new anti-Semitism. Proper and valid complaints about Israel and Israelis is one thing and is not anti-Semitism. What is anti-Semitism, it is demanding that Israel be held to a different and often higher standard than other nations, and that the IDF fight its wars without harming any noncombatant, something not expected from other militaries. These anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist types of anti-Semites will find some singular action and draw attention to this one act claiming it is indicative of the way Jews in Israel act in every case. One of their favorite claims is to turn the Holocaust back upon the Jews by claiming that the Israelis are committing a holocaust on the Arab Palestinians. There is no validity to this absurdity which is proven as the Arab Palestinian population continues to rise, something which would not be impossible if Israel truly desired their slaughter.

 

The facts never matter when the time comes for demonizing the Jews. Any accusation will be met with howls of more, more guaranteeing that every Jew must be guilty as charged, of course. That is how it starts while at the start the effects are rarely felt since their town did not have any Jews and, after all, we would never know a Jew, we’re better people than that. This is the emotional mindset of not only many a Jew hater, but soon it defines the general public and once it passes a certain point, then it becomes accepted amongst that which is the norm making such views the majority. In all too many Jewish neighborhoods, the common threat is the thought that it could never happen here, we are accepted, we have friends, business associates and are accepted members of the society. How do we know that these are the baseline of the Jews in the United States? Because if there were sufficient numbers of Jews to form a congregation, this was how they perceived the world. No such unadulterated and baseless hatred could ever reach their neighborhood, after all they are accepted, they have tenure and all sorts of awards and their employer loves them, all until that day those “others” came to town with their smart uniforms and guns and we just did what we were told, honest. That is just how “it cannot happen here” dies, in a single early morning, when the train disembarked them. The rest we had no means of preventing and then it was too late. Oh, they were so very sorry sharing your women’s jewelry, moving into your vacant house, driving your cars and taking everything which had been yours. How do you think these former friends who claimed they would die before allowing your being taken to the camps would react to your coming back home? Hint, they really do not wish to answer for their taking everything after you were carted away. What happened in way too many such instances, the returning Jew was shot without any witnesses and with all covering up the crime which soon became a non-event. This was the fate of hundreds of thousands of Jews who became untraceable leaving families and friends without closure or even knowing where their next of kin, their friend died and was buried. This was the result of the last Holocaust and will be the result of even future holocausts as once you make one group of people into non-people, then it is easy to do with such however one pleases. Trust that eventually there will be those who will make yours into a non-people and you will have nowhere to run.

 

There is one other piece to the puzzle which is something we have found to be true despite continuous criticism that such a statement cannot be made as generally and liberally as we apply this. But Jews are the ultimate pacifists and always the first to stick up for others in our so-called modern age. Gun control, supported by Jews in horrifying numbers often approaching 90% and even higher. The less traditional the congregation, the further left their politics and the more they support disarming everyone. They never quite figure out how the criminals are supposed to be disarmed when convicted felons on parole are often found to be carrying weapons. If they can acquire a weapon, then anybody with sufficient cash can appropriate a weapon, or be taken by a group of thugs. With such people money is only good if you can defend your right to said money. There used to be a pro-gun advertisement which stated that once there is total gun control, then only the criminals will have guns. They left out that also only the government will have guns, but I guess that was covered after all. There are two ideas which go together, leftist socialism and gun control and they both stem from the same weakness, a feeling that one is helpless and requires the state to care of them. This feeling of helplessness is indicative of the prey mindset, everything is a potential threat unless identified as otherwise. The feeling that they are only safe when with the rest of the herd and thus protected. Take a far left liberal outside their comfort zone and they would fall apart, generally, yes, we know there are exceptions, you outliers. What those who just complained that they are made of better stuff, well, guess you just volunteered to protect the rest of the herd. It may not be your job, but it just may be your responsibility if you believe in Judeo-Christian ethics. Quoting, amongst others, Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Sometimes you find your quotes come from the strangest places.

 

Why is it always the Jews? Well, it actually is not always the Jews. There was the mass murder of the Armenians by the Ottoman Turks, the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33 by famine which was induced by Stalin as he stole their food to feed Moscow leaving the Ukrainians next to nothing, the Cambodian genocide under the Khmer Rouge and too numerous other times throughout human history. All too numerous of these events involved the Jews for comfort. What we can place forward is that if there exists Jews in a region, they will take the brunt of any terrorism or assault simply because if you are capable of placing Jews amongst those you are opposing, then you can gain unbridled sympathy from Europe, the United Nations and countless organizations simply by decrying that the Jews and Israel are causing your problems. Truth does not matter. But there has been a constant throughout history, it has almost always been the Jews even where there have been scarcely a Jew to be found, should they find a single Jew, then they will be responsible for all damage from one’s civil war and the Jew will be accused of being responsible for everything claimed by either side in the end. The final draft of any agreement will claim that the Jew owes both sides for the loss of their heritage which both claim that the only Jew either side could find destroyed both. This is basically what Turkey is claiming about the areas along their Syrian border as they extend the Turkish borders southward while slaughtering the Kurds the United States State Department decided were expendable after they destroyed most of the Islamic State for the United States and the world, and what has their reward been? They have been denied again the homelands they too were promised after World War I. The difference being the Jews ignored the United States State Department and fought a war intended for their annihilation and established a flourishing modern nation. The Kurds should be permitted to try and do likewise but the world currently believes that the Arabs and Islam are the future. Everyone is permitted their own beliefs, but not their own facts. Well, that would be true except the State Department of the United States believes that the world will function exactly as they predict it will and all will be wonderful if their predilections ever forge reality. These are the people who originally backed the Nazis, then the Russian Communists followed by the Chinese Communists against the Capitalist Chinese who ended up with Formosa, Taiwan, The State Department backed the Communists even after the collapse as they were sure it would rise like the phoenix from the ashes. It did not rise, at least not yet, but we are sure a number of State Department offices are still waiting with great anticipation. To put things bluntly, it has been a long time since the State Department took the right side or did anything productive, but they keep on taking the wrong side every time or not taking a side at all.

That was why we advised the Kurds to declare their independence and pray that the United States Defense Department decided to assist them, which we are fairly certain they would, the only question being whether or not it would be done fast enough. The Kurds if provided with cover sufficient for their declaration of a nation large enough for all the Kurds from Syria, Iraq, Iran and Turkey to live under their own government, they would be another base for the American in case of any emergencies in this region and a check on Erdogan’s hopes for forming a greater Turkey on his way to the Second Ottoman Empire. Kurdistan would have provided the Western world with a stopcock preventing Turkish expansion and putting a damper on the Iranian dreams of being the new Persia. Their not declaring their independence will prove as a bane for them and for the United States. Fortunately for all involved, the Jews ignored the British, the United Nations and the United States State Department and went ahead with building, rebuilding their state home of Israel as best they could. Granted they were required to fight six allied Arab nations who were being advised by the British and German officers who were against the Jews ruling themselves anywhere, let alone where prophesy claimed they would return and rebuild their national homelands. This will persist as the main target for those who oppose the Jews as Israel is the huge poster with the target and bullseye painted upon it.

 

Beyond the Cusp

Rising World of Anti-Semitism

 

Thanks to the Congressional election of 2018, the fact is that anti-Semitism can still infect governing bodies of nations as the United States has elected three or more anti-Semites whose hatred of Jews is so obvious; their own party leaders have denounced some of their statements and Tweets demanding for them to apologize. Their apologies were less than satisfying and their return to detestable statements has cemented the fact that anti-Semitism now sits in the United States Congress and as such could eventually sit in the White House leading that nation. Now BTC editorialists know that no nation should elect such a leader, that should be impossible and you should know that. But is it really impossible for such? Let’s take a look over at Europe. Currently, if what many are predicting turns out to be true, the current ruling party will not be the one which chooses the next coalition and their main adversary may even have sufficient to rule absolutely without the need for smaller parties supporting them. We are speaking of the British Labor Party. Should the British Labor Party win in the House of Commons, they will select the next Prime Minister to sit at 10 Downing Street. Parties normally select the leader of their party to fill that address and the current Labor Party leader is Jeremy Corbyn, a man who calls Hamas and Hezballah leaders and members his friends. He, and his Labor Party, have been embroiled in charges of anti-Semitism which they have conveniently brushed aside claiming they are only anti-Israel or anti-Zionist. This is the new fig leaf behind which anti-Semitism is currently ensconced. It is the fig leaf which Jeremy Corbyn uses to attempt and play off his honestly overt anti-Semitism.

 

That brings up a question of how does one separate honest criticism of Israel from criticism which crosses into anti-Semitism? One of the most accepted tests is called the “3D test of anti-Semitism.” These three D’s are delegitimization of Israel, demonization of Israel, and subjecting Israel to double standards. We would like to point out that the easiest one to detect is the last, the double standard. When the BDS Movement refuses to boycott other nations which have a worse human rights record or also are occupying disputed lands, or are committing specious activities considered worse or are far more oppressive than Israel, then they are using a double standard when judging Israel. When they call for Israel to be destroyed through accepting many millions of refugees from the Arab world or making one super state out of the Palestinian Authority regions, Hamas’s Gaza, the aforementioned refugees and Jordan, these are forms of delegitimization as it transforms Israel from the homeland of the Jewish People into another Arab majority state with the Jews a likely persecuted minority. The final one is easily explained as when one refers to Israel as Nazi or the IDF of using Nazi tactics of genocide, then you have demonization. These are outright obvious examples and there are numerous far more nuanced means of still failing the Three D’s test. This test has been approved and adopted by the United States State Department in 2010 and remained in use until in 2017 when they adopted the Working Definition of Anti-Semitism authored by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. The Working Definition of Anti-Semitism has become the virtually universal accepted definition adopted by numerous governments, the European Union, the United Nations Security Council and numerous NGO’s. It has also been rejected as being a Jewish induced plot to absolve Israel of her crimes against the Arab Palestinians, which is a form of anti-Semitism in and of itself. When one refuses to accept the otherwise accepted definition of actions of which they are guilty in order to claim that their actions are not anti-Semitism, they probably are strongly anti-Semitic.

 

Further proof is readily found simply by reading almost any major newspaper, even the NYT, and within a week or so, there you will find articles reporting of Jews being attacked; Jewish cemeteries being desecrated; Synagogues being firebombed, desecrated, windows shot out, swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs painted on them or Jewish shops such as bakeries and kosher markets vandalized. These reports are currently more prevalent in Europe, but the United States is doing what she can to catch up. I remember when if you claimed that anti-Semitism was coming to the United States and growing there, you were basically laughed out of the conversation and people treated you like you were a nut case. There probably are places where such is still the case, but these are becoming rare as even the most news averse person will have at least overheard at least one conversation about the new and fresh anti-Semitism elected to the United States Congress or the near certainty that Jeremy Corbyn will become the next Prime Minister in Britain, depending on your circle of friends and coworkers and location. My advantage in reading the tea leaves about the growing anti-Semitism came by way of observation and experience which initially encouraged me to run faster than everyone else and later to be glad of my size as that prevented my need for speed which with age decreased greatly. Moving often for a decade also led to sampling most of the United States simply as my work had me living in a new Motel 6 every month to month and a half. The experiences and ability to see reality is greatly enhanced under such conditions though it can be a difficult life.

 

The problem has surfaced in one place which most people would have suspected Jews would be safe if only due to their numbers, the Jewish bergs of New York. It has reached the point where the NYT asks, “Is It Safe to Be Jewish in New York?” as well as the Forward where they reported, “Is A String Of Attacks Against Brooklyn Jews Really About Anti-Semitism?” But despite anti-Semitism only recently making appearances in the mainstream news coverage, an article by the Anti-Defamation League from November of 2017 reported, “Anti-Semitic Incidents Up 96 Percent in N.Y State in 2017,” proving that the problem has been growing for some time. Below we are including a video from PIX 11 News with a report about a gang attack of a Jewish sixteen-year-old youth in Queens, New York. And if we wish to cross the Atlantic into Europe, we find this in today’s Times of Israel where they reported, “Belgian carnival float condemned for anti-Semitic puppets of Jews.” Perhaps the most damning comes from CNN with the title, “Anti-Semitism is so bad in Britain that some Jews are planning to leave.”

 

 

The entire world has not gone around the bend; it just appears that way. Below, we have included a map which depicts percentage of people with anti-Semitic views, often a fairly accurate indicator of anti-Semitism. There are numerous forms of anti-Semitism. There are those who simply hate Jews, period. This is what is found throughout much of the Middle East and North Africa (the Arab Muslim world), in groups such as the neo-Nazis (todays Nazis), the KKK and new on the list is Black Lives Matter. There are those who claim that the Jews are the reason they failed because the Jews controlled their company, the media, the banks, or have too much influence in the government or any number of the tropes Jews have heard for centuries. The newer version is that the Zionists or Israelis controlled their company, the media, the banks, or have too much influence in the government. You probably noted a similarity between the two lists, that is because they are the same excuses and stories which simply get recycled. The story that the Jews bake their Matzah using the blood of non-Jewish victims who they kidnap choosing some hapless soul and place them in a machine which has sharp points on the inside and tumbles bleeding out the person has been used by the Christian world and the Muslim world and has recently begun to be used by NGO’s and will likely spread once more. Another version of this blood-libel which is also in use is that the IDF steals body parts, eyes, kidneys, and other organs etc. for use in the Israeli hospitals, as they need these for Jewish patients. Anybody with even a cursory knowledge of medicine would immediately note that this would never work as transplants require genetic matching to have any possibility of being successful, thus it would be insane to go about such in this manner. The body parts falsehood is simply a modernized version of the Matzoh libel. Then there is the Czarist anti-Semitic invention “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” (Russian: Протоколы сионских мудрецов) or “The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion” which weave a tale describing how the Jews are planning to take over the world, all 0.02% of the world population, the Jews, are going to take over the world. What was astonishing is that this was believed by the Russian people as they assisted in the pogroms and often with mass slaughtering of Russian Jews. This fiction is still being printed and distributed and has regained popularity in some places around the world. The only fortunate side to this is that it is most appreciated in areas where the Jews are already quite disliked, one could say hated. Mein Kampf has returned to print and supposedly is selling well despite a disclaimer that much of what is enclosed as being untrue, plus it can be found and read in its entirety on the Internet. You really can find just about everything on the Internet. All these things are going to do is add fuel to a fire which will soon be burning completely out of control across far too many swaths of land and groups of nations and people, more fuel is the one thing which is not needed.

 

World Wide Anti-Semitism

 

Then there are the defenses given by people which in and of themselves are simply a way of excusing their hatred and actions, sometimes explaining such to themselves so they will be able to dismiss their guilt and feel perfectly fine with their hatreds. Our favorite excuse is simply ridiculous and it goes, “Some of my best friends are Jews.” Then there is the excuse that, “Well, there are Jews who also claim that Israel is a horrible and racist place.” That or other claims against Israel, as that appears to be the main place this excuse is used and the people using it honestly believe that it holds some or complete validity. Here’s a small inside look into the Jews, some of the world haters of Jews have been Jews. Our favorite Jewish Jew hater is George Soros. He has claimed he cannot be anti-Semitic because he is Jewish and has many Jewish friends and a good number of his Jewish friends agree with him. We have to credit him with using the most number of refutable reasons which are refuted as they simply prove nothing. The Jews have been on both sides of virtually every issue since Moses and the twelve spies. Simple historic proof comes from two of the greatest murderers of Jews, Hitler and Stalin. Hitler claimed the Jews were all Communists and thus a threat to the Nazi state while simultaneously, Stalin claimed the Jews were national socialist supporters and enemies of the Soviet Union. There is a small validity to that as Jews supported the Communists and the National Socialists when their parties first rose to power and well before it became evident that the Jews were going to be used as the scapegoat by both the Nazis and the Soviets. Jews in the Muslim World, especially the Arab parts were also murdered in pogroms, rioting and other violence including in the Holy Land where the British often stood by and watched these riots until the Arabs came too close to the British before they would fire a single warning shot in the air bringing the violence to an end. Some anti-Semites are so sure that their hatred is founded will actually state, “Well, you know, that is how those people are.” This is an unfortunate truth about all too many people, that they are so assured in their misbeliefs actually believing their excuses will indemnify them against being called a racist, an anti-Semite, an Islamophobe or whatever hatred in which they are steeped. Hatred is one of those unexplainable truths which exists and will remain prevalent in so many different forms all of which have one thing in common, they are self-enforcing through the circular logic which is used in powering their vile, loathing hostilities. Racial, religious, nationalist and other bigotries will likely never disappear until the coming of the Messiah, in the meantime, all we can do is to uncover and reveal these despicable acts for what they are, unfounded hate. Anti-Semitism is just one of the oldest of these hatreds which has morphed into the forms of anti-Israel and anti-Zionist maligning defamation where many of the old stereotypical tropes have simply been made into nationalistic based falsehoods being presented as truth. Many of these are so easily taken apart as to be ridiculous, but people insist that they know the real secret which the rest of humanity is simply too blind to see. You cannot argue with such people as their minds are already set and nothing will sway them or force them to reconsider their beliefs. Even if you are able to silence them temporarily, they will simply walk away convinced, in the case of anti-Semitism, anti-Israelism or anti-Zionism, that you have been co-opted and turned by the Jew influence and that you are the one who needs to reconsider your lack of enmity towards the Jews, Jewish state or Jewish love of Israel.

Israel Never Placed a Single Arab in a Refugee Camp

There is this political accusarial legend that Israel placed hundreds of thousands of Arab into refugee camps. The simple and truthful answer to this accusation is that it is categorically false. The first evidence is that there is not a single Arab refugee camp in any area under full Israeli control. That includes every inch of Israel inside the Green Line (pre-Six Day War Armistice Lines) as well as none within Area C, the region of the Shomron under Israeli civil and military control as per the Oslo Accords. Another interesting side fact is that the idea that the entirety of the Shomron (Jordanian regions called the West Bank) belongs to the Arabs and was the state of Palestine is a complete fabrication. The region was originally intended to be part of Israel but was lost to Jordan during the 1948 War to Annihilate the Jews and end the Jewish State of Israel which resulted from six Arab Armies and a number of Arab militias attacking Israel the morning of May 15, 1948, the first morning of Israeli existence. Jordan renamed it West Bank as using its Biblical names of Judea and Samaria were far too Jewish and Shomron was really not all that much less Jewish, so they invented the West Bank, as it is the western banks of the Jordan River. Jordan lost control of these lands in the Six Day War as Israel liberated their lands from Jordanian control. Under International Law, all the lands west of the Jordan River belong to Israel and currently there exists a semiautonomous region which is ruled by the Palestinian Authority in Area A and Area B of the disputed region while Israel retained complete control of Area C. All of the Arab refugee camps are either in Gaza which is currently ruled by Hamas or in the region under Palestinian Authority control. The remainder of the Arab refugee camps are in Lebanon, Jordan and Syria, all established and under Arab rulers. No Arab refugee camp was ever established in Israel. All Arabs who were within the region inside the Green Line were granted full Israeli citizenship while their neighbors and relatives who fled as instructed by the Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini who called for the Arabs to leave the Jewish State so the invading Arab armies could simply slaughter everyone on their way to victory and their intended celebration on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea as they finished off the last of the Jews driving them into the sea. The Arabs’ intent was stated well by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League at that time who stated, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.”

 

Every Arab refugee camp from this war was established by the Arab nations as they forced their brothers and sisters, fellow Arabs, into makeshift camps of tents surrounded by barbed wire with armed guards to prevent anyone escaping. This was done in order to play the refugee card demanding that Israel take in these Arabs and thus inundate the Jewish State with Arabs making them a majority and ending Israel at the first elections. This never materialized and they have kept these Arabs, many actually related to people living in the same area outside the camps but they are not permitted to relocate and start their lives anew. After the armistices were all signed and set, the Arab nations proceeded to drive their Jews from within their countries over the ensuing decade. The total numbers which relocated in Israel exceeded eight-hundred-thousand Jews. Remarkably, not one Jewish refugee camp was formed and Israel never demanded that the Arab world take back their Jews. Instead, these Jews were welcomed and integrated into the Israeli society where they make up approximately half of the Jewish population of Israel. This fact also lays bare the lie that the Jews of Israel all came from Russia, the Americas and Europe as half of the Jews in Israel origins are from Arab lands in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) regions. Facts are funny things, when people hear them they immediately react stuttering an answer of, “No! Really?” The only thing one can respond is, “Yes, really.” Another little fact is there never was any Arab state or any other state named Palestine. Palestine is an adoption of the Roman renaming of the region after they dispersed the Jews presumably to wipe the Jew from the face of the earth. Destroying the Jews is far from an original idea as it started in ancient Egypt, was also attempted by the Assyrians with a modicum of success, then the Persians gave it a go followed by the Greeks, Romans, Caliphate, Crusaders, Arab Empire, the Ottomans, the British and today the Arab and much of the Muslim worlds. These are simply the attempts made which include the region which makes up what was ancient Israel.

If one were to ask, what about in the remainder of the world. We will start from Russia and work our way westward and include some from southward. First thing is that all of the above can be included in this list as well, as they were not limited to simply the region of ancient Israel but included their entire empires. Russia made a number of attempts both under the Czars who wrote the fake manuscript, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in order to make an excuse for their war on the Jews. This manuscript has since been translated into Arabic, Farsi and other Arabian languages and sells well in much of the Muslim world being presented once again as fact and proof that the Jews have evil machinations for controlling the world. The pogroms and purification as well as the Inquisition and finally the Holocaust were all resulting from the Church being used by governments to focus hatred and blame for all calamities on the Jews so the ruling class could shift all blame from themselves. The Arab world would use different methods for persecuting Jews. The first is the Jiyza, a special tax placed on non-Muslims, sometimes even just Jews leaving everyone else free from this form of protection racket. The Jiyza was paid to recompense the Muslims for providing for the non-Muslims’ safety. If you did not pay the Jiyza, then it would become known that you were an open target for thefts or even murder. When the Jews or others had been taxed by the Jiyza to the point where they did not have sufficient wealth to steal through this method, this was when the other form of oppression was used, forced conversion. The non-Muslims, specifically Jews, were given the choice of converting to Islam or being beheaded. Those who refused were often beheaded on the spot and other times they would make a public spectacle of beheading the Jews or non-Muslims. Those who did convert would need to pay very particular attention to not break any of the rules of the Islamic faith as that would often mean that your conversion was not done in good faith and you would be executed as an Apostate. That brings us across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas where we will only represent the United States. Jews have been discriminated against through the years into the 1960’s when the Civil Rights Movement ended much of such discrimination. Still, there is one seminal event where Jews were targeted directly under General Grant with his infamous General Order No. 11 of 1862 in which he dispossessed the Jews of their property and expelled them from the region under his control which included Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. President Lincoln nullified the order but by the time it reached Washington D.C. and the President reviewed this one order amongst all he had on his plate at the time and the rescinding order reached General Grant, who some rumor he sat on that communication for long enough for the order to be completely carried out, the damage was dome for the most part if not completely. There is at least one nation whose Jews were never targeted or subjected to humiliations or other mistreatment, and that honor belongs to Japan. Even during World War II Japan refused the Nazi orders to murder their Jews or turn them over to German forces. This would bring us back to eastern Russia, so hope you enjoyed our little jaunt around the globe.

 

The above also answers the question as to why there are so few Jews in the world, a mere fraction not quite reaching to 0.2% (that is 0.002 of the world population). The honest question would be how there are any Jews at all when they were treated, as we often point out, exactly as were the Carthaginians by Rome in order to destroy them and remove them from history. It worked against Carthage but the Jews had a secret, the Torah. Torah became the center of our communities and gave us our sense of being and belonging while we awaited our promised return to our beloved homelands. We have been permitted our return and are not persecuting or retaining Arabs with refugee camps. All of the refugee camps were established in Arab controlled regions making those who obeyed the demands of Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini into prisoners of their own people who refused to permit them to integrate into their lands. When one looks at a map of the Arab world compared to tiny Israel (Israel is approximately the size of New Jersey) and remembers that Israel took in over eight-hundred-thousand Jews from across that very same Arab world, it boggles the mind that the Arabs with all their empty space demand that Israel also accept their refugees (see map below). Instead of accepting the responsibility for their self-inflictive actions, the Arab world blames Israel and equates Israel with Jew. Then they have investigated literally tens of millions, if not hundred or even billions, of dollars and Euros in propaganda blaming the Jewish State for the reason that anything which their lands lack economically as well as for these refugees which have increased from the original six-hundred-fifty-thousand to somewhere over five-million who remain after generations in the camps. The Arab refugees are not even treated by the United Nations, as are all other refugees around the world. While other refugees are under the jurisdiction of the UNHCR – The UN Refugee Agency but are given their own special United Nations refugee agency just for the Arab refugees, UNRWA – United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. While all other refugees are settled as rapidly as conditions allow and their children are not considered to be refugees thus all refugees are only for a single generation, the Arab refugees pass along their status as refugees to the children and their children’s children on into posterity thus not only prolonging the suffering lasting generation after generation, but this also has swelled the ranks of refugees into the millions with no end in sight. This has been the result of the Arabs forcing their brothers and sisters to wallow in poverty being denied rights restricting their available occupations, if even permitted work, denied ownership of land or homes, inadequate facilities in many of the camps, being targeted in Syria by Assad with every sort of weapon, and other degradations beyond any form of decency or respect. Then they place the blame for their actions upon Israel, the nation which granted every Arab within her borders full citizenry and rights as equals in the Jewish state.

The other problem which has also been thrust upon Israel is the supposed Arab Palestinians who claim they were thrown out of their nation of Palestine by the Jews. As already mentioned, there never was any nation called Palestine, it is simply the name given by the Romans to the region also known as southern Syria. When the British used the word Palestinian, they were referring to the Jews and when they wished to speak about the Arabs residing in the same region, they were called Arabs, surprisingly enough. Palestine, as a region, included all of Israel, Gaza, the Shomron and all of Jordan. When the decision was made to form an Arab state and a Jewish state, the British used the Jordan River to divide the lands as the British laughingly called evenly. Despite the fact that Jordan was formed in 78% of the Mandate lands and Israel in a mere 22%, the Zionist Congress agreed to the partition and that was supposed to be the end of the problem. When Mahmoud Abbas claims he merely wants the 22% of the lands of the British Mandate which he is entitled to, most of the world interprets that to mean the old Jordanian West Bank and possibly Gaza. That is not what Abbas means. His concept of 22% is the region which was not granted to the Arabs as Jordan, or simply all of Israel. They do not even hide that fact as their protesters and their rallies in the Palestinian Authority areas and Hamas’s Gaza always chant, “From the River to the Sea, Palestine must be free.” The Arabs have never given up on Azzam Pasha’s dream of, “a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Iran take this one step further and call for the extermination of the Jews on the entirety of the Earth. This is also a popular theme in Jordan, much of Egypt, most of Turkey, many Saudis and throughout the rest of the Arab and parts of the Islamic world. We wish we could say this was the limit to this hatred, but it is not. There are many around the world who also desires the end of Israel and even the eradication of the Jews. These ideas have been gaining traction on the political left, mostly the far left, but it will not remain there. Should this poison infect the entirety of the world, Israel will serve a purpose she was denied by the British when they caved to Arab demands under threats of Arabs rising up against the British throughout the MENA region to prevent the Jews from Egypt escaping to Israel in order to escape the Nazi death machine. Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Amin al-Husseini spent most of World War II in Berlin or reviewing the Islamic brigades he assisted in forming to hunt down undesirables in the Balkans. This resulted in the deaths of many Jews and Christians and a war between these SS divisions and the Serbians who resisted the Nazis. This was one of the services the Mufti provided the Nazis. He also hosted radio broadcasts which targeted the Arab world and Iran and resulted in a number of uprisings against the British during the war. The Mufti also requested that the Nazis, after they would conquer Jerusalem and the Middle East, to please carry out a Final Solution of the Jews residing across the Middle East. There is one last factoid which needs mention, the yellow marking designating a Jew used by the Nazis was not an idea of their origins, it was first implemented by Umayyad Caliph Umar II in early 8th century. The practice was reissued and reinforced by Caliph Al-Mutawakkil (847–861), subsequently remaining in force for centuries. The misconception that the Arab and Muslim world became anti-Semitic copying the Nazis is untrue as they required absolutely no assistance and if anything, the Nazis got many of their concepts from the Islamic world including the yellow armbands demarking Jews. Christians often had a different color demarking them, as did Hindus and Buddhists under Islamic rule. The untruths get so much play for a very simple reason, ignorance. Now Ignorance is not stupidity, it simply means a lack of knowing something or lacking a proper education. When it comes to history, especially anything dating back before man walked on the moon (facetious comment), all too many of the youth, those under say, forty, have little knowledge of history and as you go deeper into history, the greater the lack of information. This is even true for all too many Jews which is unforgivable as our own history over the last four-thousand years plus is sufficient to provide a general knowledge of history, but many Jews have never actually read the Torah or anything concerning their own histories. In closing, there is the famous statement by George Santayana, “Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes.”
