Israel does as she wants

Today supporting Israel (Palin and a few others) is almost like supporting the Neo-Nazi party. The world has gradually, at first, then all of sudden turned against Israel. So perhaps the greatest source of modern resentment for Jewish people is due to association with the state of Israel. Across the globe Israel is the poster boy of inhumanity, cruelty and inequity. Israel is a curse word across the informed world. It continues to trample human dignity with the certificate of the USA (elites). From an African POV Israeli is the apex expression of White supremacy.

Many respectable Jews also speak out against Israel (Naomi Klein, Shlomo Sand and Noam Chomsky). Even former US presidents have had enough (Carter). The historian Toynbee investigated Zionism in 1915 at the Information Department of the Foreign Office, and initially supported Zionism.

Holocaust     Holocaust
Israel is the only Middle Eastern nation with a powerful arsenal of nuclear weapons of mass destruction. It has never signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and yet this never makes the headlines in the Western press, which is far too busy whipping up fear and war-mongering against Iran, in order to justify Israel's threatened unilateral attack, fully supported by the US, UK and Sarkozy France. At 64, Israel clearly continues enjoying that lifeline from the West, especially the US. So much so that many wonder whether the US promotes its Middle East agenda through Israel, or if things are really exactly the other way around: that Israel controls US policy in the Middle East through powerful lobbies and gigantic global money power clout Holocaust

In 1922 he was influenced by the Palestine Arab delegation which was visiting London, and he adopted their views. His subsequent writings show the way he changed his outlook on the subject, and in the late 1930s he moved away from supporting the Zionist cause and moved toward the Arab camp. By the 1950s he was an opponent of the state of Israel.

WAR WITH IRAN + GOLDSTONE REPORT


   
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it
 
Alik Adolph Hitler

Is anyone surprised at the anti-Iran smear campaign? Have we not seen it before? Read More

Iran is a new power broker in the area, like China they have been making investment inroads into Africa. They are the last politically self-controlled Middle Eastern nation. Nukes for war or peace, are not the concern of Israel, Iran is the sole economic threat to Western interest in the region. But Israel cannot justify a war with this truth, so they need the big, simple, repetitive lie(Hitler).

 

A potential super-power rival, with too much oil, which the wolves want (they already got Libya, now who is left?) And the thing about the media lies is this: Before you actually had to do something to be guilty of a crime, today your enemy is using mind tricks "I think you were thinking of developing Nuclear warheads"- How do you defend yourself against what someone thinks you were going to do in the future?


   
I think you were thinking of developing Nuclear warheads—how do you defend yourself against future criminal charges?
 
 

If Israel attacks Iran's nuke sites it'll be because they also want to provoke an Iranian response in their own backyard that will allow them to finally settle their Lebensraum and 'illegal' settlement problem once and for all. Since the pesky Persians have no air force capable of conducting a reciprocal strike, they'll have to rely on their asymmetrical forces. And Iran sure has plenty of these. The Iranians basically have a proxy army right next door to Israel in Southern Lebanon and as soon as this war goes live (if it ever does and hopefully not), you can expect Hezbollah, the al-Aqsa martyr brigades, al-Qassam and all the other Iranian funded proxies to launch everything they've got at Tel Aviv.Read More

Assuming Iran had Nuclear war heads (which they don't) why would they attack Israel only to be annihilated in the cross-fire? In the history of Iran they have never made a fatwah they were not planning to honor: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a fatwa forbidding the production, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons on August 9, 2005. So are these fears of Israel rational? For years, the paranoid Israelis have been screaming bloody murder that the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said that "Israel should be wiped from the map." Of course, the man said no such thing, it was a deliberate mistranslation meant to serve their purposes: to demonize Ahmadinejad and Iran and to justify an unprovoked attack against the Islamic Republic of Iran.Read More

The United Nations has just released the Goldstone Report, a scathing report which accuses Israel of 37 specific war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza earlier this year. Israel has denounced the report as "Anti-Semitic (even though Judge Goldstone is himself Jewish- The report which was mild sparked outrage in Israel and the initiation of a vicious and personal campaign against Goldstone), and the United States will block the report from being referred to the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague, thereby making the US Government an accessory after-the-fact.Read More

Current | The Zionist had a word with Mr. Obama, anyone surprised at the empty rhetoric. "Threat to US and her interest" speak in Plain English Mr. Imperialist. Just say: "In service of Israeli government (not necessarily the people) I must listen when they come calling their lies and fears should be paid for by the tax payers in America and by the young poor men and women that will have to die in the name of Zionist interest." Also tell the people that to be re-elected I need the Israeli lobby and their campaign funds, also a war will make me look strong. Just like the guy I replaced-- I might get another term. There is nothing Israel does that doesn't get Obama's support, (AIPAC are his employers) so much for partiality in the Palestinian conflict. But he is between a rock and a very hard place. Do we care -- no. His skills on the ball court and his cool manner are not compensation for deaths of innocents. All presidents have to deal with the Israeli lobby, if he is wise he will find a way to stay out of their clutches.

WALLACE ON AHMADINEJAD

Mike Wallace in 2006:

Of Ahmadinejad, Wallace said, "He's an impressive fellow, this guy. He really is. He's obviously smart as hell."

Wallace said he was surprised to find that the Iranian president was still a college professor who taught a graduate-level course.

"You'll find him an interesting man," he said. "I expected more of a firebrand. I don't think he has the slightest doubt about how he feels ... about the American administration and the Zionist state. He comes across as more rational than I had expected."[2]

Black Skin White Mask the errand boy of Israeli lobby has to payback his masters for his election. But words are just words, the final verdict is based on action. Obama get no sympathy, but we can only hope he is playing his cards and saying "Now I am president maybe I can avert World War 3", because had a complete nut been in office -- Bush or McCain--maybe the war would already be on the way with Iran. On the issue of Iran, like all other issues (Iraq 1 and 2, Libya, etc) Iran could lift up its skirt, it could fly the Yankee flag, it could whistle Dixie, it could let every UN inspector that ever live look in every hole, stream and crack and NOTHING will satisfy or abate Israeli's fears. Israel is a nation of negation, it exists in a climate of fear and a world in chaos. War is its preferred environment. One would be hard pushed to find one instance since the Zionist states creation that said "no war this time."Read More


   
Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that... I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it
 
Alik Ariel Sharon

Under the rhetoric of "Israeli's right to exist." or as Naomi Klien puts it, a "genocide free card." Israel maintains a preferential relationship with the USA. And to make sure everything is jolly-good in Israel, America gives them $3Billion dollars direct foreign assistance each year to tie them over in the barren desert while they continue to be the world's major exporters of military equipment, accounting for 10% of the world's total output.

Israel is relatively poor in natural resources, and depends on imports of petroleum, coal, food, uncut diamonds and production inputs, though the country's nearly total reliance on energy. (See Congo)

So how can one human-rights violating country get almost equal aid to the entire continent of Africa, which sits just below $4 Billion? Defenders of this aid bias will state America looks after its friends. Now America, because it houses 1/2 the world Jewish population is the seat of the Jewish lobby. And some are stricken with guilt for being idle during the holocaust in Europe.

Jewish Lobby But here is the other question, if the minority of 4 million US-Jews are able to get the USA to push $3 Billion dollars to a people who are economically strong, then why can't the 65 million African-Americans get aid for Africa (the place of their ancestry)?Let us put it another way: African-Americans have been victims of Slavery, oppression, racism and all forms of cruelty at the hands of the USA (the Jews have not). Yet America gives 3 billion dollars to Israel (who has nothing to do with America historically) and only gives under 4 billion to the entire impoverished continent of Africa? The inequity stands in the face of the fact that America was built on hundreds of years of African blood sweat and tears.

But this issue is clearly not the fault of any Jewish person. It is the fault of African-Americans who have failed to identify with their Motherland and act for its common interest. See Battle of Holocaust for more info on why.

ISRAELI-AMERICAN RELATIONSHIP

And the Israeli - American relationship has nothing to do with romance. This is not a Jewish religious issue. 1. Money | Jewish-American Wealth in America has power and a stake in the mainstay of American economy as well in the corder of power. You cannot become president of America if Jewish-America doesn't want you. 2. Strategic location | Israel is in the heart of the most historically coveted trade route. Having allied Europeans colonize the area is a sensible cultural-political move. 3. Trade | Weapons of war, and a strong consumer market which is American friendly.

In 1975 President Gerald Ford and Vice President Nelson Rockefeller guaranteed Israel to free US oil exports under a 1975 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) the USA guaranteed all Israel's oil needs in the event of a crisis. This Memorandum of Understanding is quietly renewed every five years since then. It commits U.S. taxpayers to maintain a strategic U.S. reserve for Israel, equivalent to $3 billion in 2002 dollars. Special legislation was enacted to exempt Israel from restrictions on oil exports from the USA. Moreover, the U.S. government agreed to divert oil from the USA, even if this causes domestic shortages. The U.S. government also guaranteed delivery of oil in U.S. tankers if commercial shippers become unable or unwilling to carry oil from the USA to Israel.[6]

Jewish advocates are quick to say the Nazi treatment (card, ethnic profiling, high walls, etc) is not the same as what they are doing to the Palestinians. They say the Nakaba (Palestinian exodus) was nothing like their exile because it was short. Using flexible morality it becomes sacrilegious to draw comparisons.[2] Now staying with their arguments, how long and how brutal was the African Holocaust?

Jews reject Zionism
250 ongoing years of dehumanization, and the thing we fail to make clear, unlike the Jews who were part of a political ethnic cleansing the African was not even an ethnic issue, because. Africans were not actually humans.
Israel has Gaza. Both Nazi and Zionist Israel use concentration camps; Hitler had Auschwitz,Gaza is much bigger than Auschwitz though. They both use chemical weapons on their victims; Hitler used Sarin in Auschwitz, Israel uses White Phosphorus on Gaza. (See table of comparison below)

"Nazi" Germans used to be the most despised people on earth, but now it's "Zionist" Israelis.

You'd have thought that if White Jews know how it feels to be on the receiving end, they would want to make sure it never happens to anyone else, but instead, they have taken Hitler's methods and perfected them to use on defenseless Arab men, women and children.

Death from Nazi and Zionist Africans hope, that where possible Palestinians use non-violence against Israel. Because a. Violence is a last resort, B. Israel is stronger with violence. C. It gives Israel justification to "defend its so-called right to exist at the expense of everyone else"

When the Rabbi Meir Kahane, was first elected to Israel's Knesset as the MK for Kach, the distinguished philosopher and historian Emil Fackenheim, himself a refugee from Nazism, compared Kahane's methods to that of the Nazis during the Weimar Republic. [Sydney Morning Herald 27.8.84.] Rabbi Meir Kahane had, among other things, called for sexual relations between Arab males and Jewish females to be made a criminal offence punishable by five years imprisonment.

Although sexual relations between Arabs and Jews are not criminalize in Israel today, mixed partnerships are extremely rare and subject to overwhelming public and social disapproval. Mixing with Ethiopian Jews is even more taboo. Schools often boast that "they have no Blacks here" in their publicity. Ethiopians are the target of terrible racism and have the highest suicide rate in Israel. [3]

The anti-Zionism equals anti-Semitism argument drains the word anti-Semitism of any useful meaning. For it means that to be an anti-Semite, it is sufficient to hold any view ranging from criticism of the policies of the current Israeli government to denial that Israel has a right to exist as a state, without having to subscribe to any of those things which historians have traditionally regarded as making up an anti-Semitic world view: hatred of Jews per se, belief in a worldwide Jewish conspiracy, belief that Jews generated communism and control capitalism, belief that Jews are racially inferior and so on. Moreover, while theoretically allowing that criticism of Israeli government policies is legitimate, in practice it virtually proscribes any such thing Holocaust

ZIONIST FOUNDER ANTI-JUDAISM
 
 

Holocaust     Holocaust
Antisemitism helps to build this kind of Jew, Education that will bring to assimilation Holocaust
  Holocaust
Holocaust Holocaust
Holocaust Theodor Hertzl
Holocaust

Theodor Hertzl: The term "Zionism" was first introduced in 1893 by Nathan Birmbaum, but Theodor Hertzel, an Austrian Jew born to a prosperous, emancipated Budapest family, is recognized as the founder of the Zionist ideology when he published his book in 1896, "The Jewish State", where he declared that the cure for antisemitism was the establishment of a Jewish state. As he saw it, the best place to establish this state was in Palestine. 

While Hertzel claimed that the establishment of a "Jewish" state would cure anti-Semitism, he also promoted anti-Semitism to further his cause. Quotes from Hertzel and other Zionists demonstrate their philosophy and the lengths to which they are willing to go to accomplish their goals:

In the diary of Hertzel: a way to solve the problem of anti-Semitism was to speak to the head priest of Vienna to get an appointment with the Pope, to make a mass conversion of all the Jews of Austria to Catholicism. It should be done on a Sunday, in the middle of the day, with music, and pride, publicly. We are the last generation that held on to the faith of our for-fathers. The conversion would be in St.. Stephen's Cathedral."


In the biweekly diary, "Temurah", no.2, pg. 12-13, "I didn't circumcise my son Hans, and this will bring the Geula closer."  Ibid. "Simple goyim are better than Rabbis, and the highest are the goyish priests." 


In his article "Deutche Tsytung newspaper" Hertzel writes: "The Jews make countries fight each other and when they want, make peace. But whatever happens, they get rich from this."
Diary, page 16: "Antisemitism helps to build this kind of Jew, Education that will bring to assimilation." 
Diary, page 68: "An idea rose on my heart to bring on anti-Semitism and to obliterate Jewish wealth. 
In the book "Hertzel", this is a quote: "I bless every Jew that converts to Christianity and my son, the sooner the better, to save him from anti-Semitism. 


After the Dreyfus affair, Hertzel saw the ingrained Jew hatred and that the goyim would not accept the Jews with open arms, then he came up with Zionism, after being convinced by the British goyim on the land of Israel. He himself originally wanted other lands, one of them being Argentina. 
In his book, "Altnoyland", "its understood that I have to remember (or mention) to discard negative Jewish things, like the Yiddish language and observing mitzvahs."

UGANDA HOME OF JEWS

The British Uganda Programme was a plan to give a portion of British East Africa (like a thief handing out gifts)  to the Jewish people as a homeland. This was a valid Jewish consideration before Palestine was targeted for occupation. And it might have actually happened. Like Palestine, It was not discredited, because it was someone else's land. Nor was it discredited because Jews had a natural desire to rekindle the land owned by their ancestors (in name only and self-claim) thousands of years ago (See Destruction of the 2nd Jewish Temple by the Romans 70 CE). It has been claimed that Jews were simply interested in a place where they can live in peace, and care little about restoring past historical or religious glories. Unfortunately history shows that is not what happened. And the blood spilt from 1947 to now is a sad call to humanities failure at empathy. Sure Jews do deserve a home, but not at the expense of the native people. Clearly this is a truism. How can the rights of immigrants be superior and destructive to the rights of the People they find living there? Clearly European dominated nations did not want them, Canada went so far as to say Zero would be too many. So they were dumped on weak nations as far away as possible from White Europe.

The offer was first made by British Colonial Secretary to Theodore Herzl's Zionist group in 1903. He offered 5,000 square miles (13,000 km2) of the Mau Plateau in what is today Kenya andUganda. The offer was a response to pogroms against the Jews in Russia, and it was hoped the area could be a refuge from persecution for the Jewish people.

The idea was brought to the Zionist Congress at its sixth meeting in 1903 in Basel. There a fierce debate ensued. Before the vote on the matter, the Russian delegation stormed out in opposition. By a remaining vote of 295 to 177, it was decided to send an "investigatory commission" on expedition to examine the territory proposed.

The next year a three-man delegation was sent to inspect the plateau. Its high elevation gave it a temperate climate, making it suitable for European settlement. However, the observers found a dangerous land filled with lions and other creatures. (more dangerous than the terrorist bomb of an angry Palestinian youth?) Moreover, although it was sparsely populated by small bands of Maasai (themselves having recently conquered the Sirikwa tribe), the Maasai were hostile to other outsiders.(again obviously not as hostile as Arab Islamist)

After receiving this report, the following Congress in 1905 decided to politely decline the British offer. Some Jews viewed this as a mistake; they then split from the ZO and established the Jewish Territorialist Organization, with the explicit aim of establishing a Jewish state anywhere, not just in Palestine. A few Jews did move to Kenya, but most settled in the urban centres. Some of these families remain to this day.


BATTLE OF THE HOLOCAUSTS


   
Oppression is wrong period, not periodically
 
' Alik Shahadah

Israeli Idea of Peace We (AHS) have been accused of piggybacking their terms and disgusting for saying the African Holocaust was the greatest Holocaust in human history. Now that is our opinion and we (AHS) have a right to view our history with the same priority which other people view their history. That fact alone is backed up with the reality that the African Holocaust is neglected because Africans are the most dis-empowered, oppressed racial group.

In this dire state Africans have failed to know and speak their history. The horrors of the African Holocaust are not minor just because we do not have the power of media on our side. The legacy of slavery, apartheid and colonialism has a twisted double blow in how African history is given priority in the world today.

All calls for "multiculturalism" in this so-called democracy are seen as antisemitic by the upper leadership and much of the GOP types. But groups such as Adalah ("Justice" in Arabic) are marginalized (see religious based discrimination in Israel)

ALI MAZRUI: I have sometimes got into trouble in Jewish circles in the United States for using terms like "Black Holocaust." In a lecture in Columbus, Ohio, I tried to put this debate in a wider context. I discussed what I called "the dual plagiarism" in Jewish-Black verbal heritage. The Jews borrowed from the Greek language the word "DIASPORA," meaning dispersion. The Africans have since borrowed from the Jewish experience the word "DIASPORA" to describe a comparable condition of dispersal.

Similarly, the Jews borrowed from the Greek language the word "HOLOCAUST" - connoting destruction by fire. The Africans have more recently borrowed from Jewish experience the same word "HOLOCAUST" (though not necessarily with a capital H). This borrowing from borrowers without attribution is what I call "the dual plagiarism." But this plagiarism is defensible because the vocabulary of horrors like genocide and enslavement should not be subject to copyright-restrictions.


Yet there are Jews who believe that it is all right for the Jews to borrow from the Greeks such words as "DIASPORA" and "HOLOCAUST," but not all right for Blacks to borrow the same concepts from the Jews. The Jews are particularly possessive about the concept of Holocaust - insisting that it must be uniquely Jewish. Yes, when the concept is from Greek to Jew - but No if it is from Jew to Black.

Some of you may remember that I wrote a short paper entitled "Multiculturalism and Comparative Holocaust" as an appendix to a syllabus review report of the State of New York. The main report of our Syllabus Review and Development Committee was entitled One Nation, Many Peoples: A Declaration of Cultural Interdependence. The subtitle of the full report was proposed by me and accepted by my colleagues.

The full report was bound to be controversial anyhow. But even more controversial in some New York circles was my appendix, pleading that the word "holocaust" should not be reserved for the Jewish experience but should be applicable to such catastrophes as the genocide against Native Americans and the brutal enslavement of Africans.

In 1991 there were demands that I should be dismissed from my job as a professor at the State University of New York at Binghamton. In 1992 there were renewed demands that my appendix on "Comparative Holocaust" should be expunged from the official report of the Syllabus Review Committee. The Weisenthal Centre urged the Board of Regents of the State of New York to "reject" the appendix on the grounds that any denial of Jewish uniqueness was a denial of the very diversity and which our Syllabus Report sought to promote.

To the best of my knowledge, my appendix has not been expunged from the Report. Nor have I been dismissed from my job. The voices of intolerance and censorship have not so far prevailed.

Maulana Karenga: Only Africans are made accountable for their Holocaust: The Jewish Holocaust had its Judenräte, Jewish councils which chose Jews for enslaved labor and for the death camps and facilitated their transport to them, as well as its kapos, Jewish camp overseers, who brutalized their fellow prisoners along with the SS guards. More than 150,000 Mischlinge (mixed blood) fought for the Nazis. In WWII Luftwaffe Field Marshall Erhart Milch, was Jewish. One way or another, at least 6,000 full-blooded Jews served in the Wehrmacht . There is some elaboration of Hitler's obsessive fear of his Jewishness, as well as the probable Jewishness of Reinhard Heydrich, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust itself. Most documents that trace the ancestry of top Nazi officials have been destroyed.<4>

'Alik Shahadah:

Beyond corn fields, and cracking whips slavery has a dark and fastidious legacy which is rarely examined holistically. And this legacy (African Holocaust) goes a long way to explaining the social condition which constitutes a African crises across the globe. Most notable of this is the global racist perception and value of African people. It explains the fragmentation of all areas of people relationships (family, business, humanity) between African people. It explains the inferiority complex which no Jewish person inherited from being in the Nazi death camps. Because in the camps of Poland and Germany Jews were still persecuted as a human being (a member, thou hated, of humanity - not a sub-human or beast). They died in the gas chambers with a knowledge of self, of Torah, of history and culture. In the Americas the African was exploited for over 400 years as a common beast, denied from history and humanity. The African in slavery died without ever even knowing he or she was a full member of the human race. This Jewish sense of identity goes a long way to explaining why Jewish people today are able to draw strength from their tragedy while the African-Diaspora still continue to be victims of their Holocaust. Read More

The Jewish nightmare witnesses at the hands of naked evil resonates so much that they have shared their pain beyond their cultural group: The image of suffering is iconized in the Jewish holocaust. We can see a film such as "Freedom Writers" where mischievous "ethnic minority" teens are told a Jewish story as an example of "real" suffering." Why would African-Americans with the most tragic history in America (equaled only by the Native American Holocaust) need to look to European Jews for a story of tragedy? The answer is simple African-Americans are not agents of these stories which impose themselves at the expense of the African narrative. Even in South Africa (which has no history of Nazi extermination) you will find a Jewish holocaust museum in every major city. Thats not the fault of any Jew, and we must respect their dedication to their holocaust study. But where is the African Holocaust museums? Where is the great monuments built to honor the millions of Africans whose bodies lie at the bottom of the Atlantic? Where is the Pan-African centers for teaching the legacy of Du Bois, Garvey and Malcolm? That speaks only to a mental defect which is the greatest legacy of our African Holocaust. Read More

John Hendrick Clarke:[5]


   
Right now, in a large number of Black Baptist churches, you can get a large number of the congregation to shed real tears of sympathy over the three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace.
 
John Hendrick Clarke

There are well over 300 organized White hate groups in the United States. I know of no overt attacks by the Jews being made on any of them. Yet, Jewish people have attacked Louis Farrakhan more than they have attacked the leaders of the Aryan Nation or the American Nazi Party. Are the Jews in America looking for an easy victory or the Truth? Black Americans have never been their enemy. And they, the Jews, have never been our friends unless it was to their convenience.  Neo-Nazism has fully re-emerged in Germany and in other states in Europe.  These are people with a nation structure and armies. Why is it that a group of weak Black Americans are getting more attention from the Jews than these powerful White forces rising against them? [5]

There have been times when it was to the best interest of the Jews to support certain Black causes, and they have supported them. When it was no longer in their interest, they withdrew from them. The Jewish people have practiced what all people on this earth have a right to practice the essential selfishness of survival. Indeed, I have criticized multiculturalism and Jewish control over the education system in New York City and the education system in the United States, in general, especially the Teachers Union. Jews have had no compunction in fighting for a holocaust curriculum. [5]

And in many schools it is mandated and Black students must learn about the Holocaust before they learn about their own history. Over the years, I have said repeatedly I am not willing to argue whether Hitler killed 6,000,000 or six.  He was wrong if he only killed six.  I think he committed one of the greatest crimes in history.  No human being would ever approve of this crime. If we are honest about historical information, we would know that the mass murder and what is referred to as the Holocaust was a small event in comparison to other mass murder events in history. [5]

The Belgians killed three times more people than this in the Congo. In an island near Australia called Tasmania, the British killed every man, woman and child. In the years of the slave trade, Africa lost, over one hundred million people. For every African captured, three were killed. The Arab slave trade in East Africa that started a thousand years before the European Atlantic slave trade and the Atlantic slave trade that lasted approximately 300 years was a holocaust against African people, which started 500 years ago and is not completely over to this day.

Relative truth: It has to be stated that Jews enslaving Africans happen inside of European identity and societies. Jews did not act as an independent Jewish nation unlike Arabs, some Africans, and Western Europe.

To suggest a specific relationship between Jews and Slavery is problematic, unless we are saying Jews, because of their Jewishness had a disposition to be engaged in slavery. It is clear that being a Jew did not directly factor into the profiteering from slavery. No Jew of the Savannah engaged in slavery because of there dedication to Jewish Torah law. Just as African rulers did not sell other Africans into slavery because they were of a particular religion or culture – they did it for profit. And so to did people of Jewish heritage engaged in slavery because of profits. The racial ideas that they held were not because of their Jewish identity but because mainly because of their European identity; the privileges and the supremacy that is inherent in that. Therefore where Jewishness has a connection to the broader whiteness is where we locate the problem in understanding social-privileges.

No historian can be taken in isolation as gospel, as it has been stated we must air on the side of balance when reflecting any controversy. The purpose of constantly stating this is because with the dissemination of history and news we have another responsible to righteousness. The adage "don't blame the messenger" is incorrect from a moral perspective as it negates responsibility. Truth can be used to tell lies, so the only antidote is balance.

No one is comfortable hearing how their ancestors were brutal slavers who profited from the flesh of other humans. And it is human nature to defend yourself, or things which threaten your cultural-ethnic-religious or national group. However, our concern is with the victims, not the sensitivities of the descendants of plantation owners and slave masters. Jewishness has not been a factor which spared any African the lash neither has it been a factor in the role of some Jews in abolition and ending apartheid.

Political Necessity: In the reality we live in, religious-cultural identity is a major factor. We see no one holding back when some Muslims happen to blow up a building or oppress a woman. We see no special consideration when Arabs (who happen to be African) invaded and rape African women. We see no special consideration when discussing the self-inflicted atrocities committed by Africans on their neighbors ( William Rumbinstein"Of these 10 million estimated dead blacks [sic], possibly 6 million were killed by other blacks in African tribal wars and raiding parties aimed at securing slaves for transport to America " ). Others such as Michael Levin blatantly with little challenge still preach the inferiority of African people and are widely published. Yet Levin complains about antisemitism. Africans and Arabs have had to come to terms, with their role in this terrible human trade. Anti-Afrocentric Yaacov Shavit and Mary Lefkowitz is another historian of Jewish heritage continuing the tradition of Hume and Kant by removing any claim that suggest Africans had a noble history: "A place of no historical worth." She claimed that Greece never learned anything from Africa, and to summarize that anything glorious about Africa is Afrocentric myth history and racism. (cutting out all the pretty academic words, this is what she is really concluding in every attack of Dr. Asante).

In "White Violence, Black Response", Herbert Shapiro (a Jew) criticizes Jewish journalist Mike Wallace's opening comments that the Nation of Islam "preach[es] a gospel of hate that would set off a federal investigation if it were preached by Southern whites." He noted that some Southern whites—including state and local elected officials—did in fact preach such a gospel of hate, but the federal government had done almost nothing to stop their hate propaganda.[2] Shapiro also argues that Wallace confused the Nation's rhetoric that condemned white people with a specific plan for violence against white people. And all of this is necessary because many Jewish people are ignorant of their scholars role is washing African history down the toilet. But there have been instances of support such as Melville Herskovits who made great contributions to African-American studies. As stated before it is unfair, in an ideal world, to handpick every person of Jewish heritage and use them as "what Jews are doing." But this is not an ideal world, and people standing behind Eurocentrism to strike blows against Africa, and then sheltering behind "antisemitism" when the punch is returned.

The racist Islamophobia David Horowitz developed a close friendship with Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton, yet in Horowitz's subsequent writings, Newton is depicted as equal parts gangster, terrorist, intellectual, and media celebrity. Horowitz runs the bigoted conservative site Jihad Watch which principle purpose is the demonization of Muslims (terms like racist do not apply yet NOI get written up for far less when commenting on Jews). He has received $4 million from the Bradley Foundation, which also financed The Bell Curve (a controversial book on race and intelligence. Horowitz has also blamed slavery on "black Africans … abetted by dark-skinned Arabs" and his group states that "demands for special treatment' as 'only necessary because some blacks can't seem to locate the ladder of opportunity within reach of others.' Horowitz stated that his reminder that "the slaves transported to America were bought from African and Arab slavers was a response to demands that only whites pay blacks reparations." So when the flag is raised at yet another manipulator and threat to African interest, is it wrong for Africans to be suspicious of these people? Hiding in Whiteness to attack and then in Jewishness when attacked. Much of the force behind the anti-African camp is fully supported and sponsored by some Jews.

We will always hear also about Muslim terrorist, less so about Christian terrorist, and even less about Jewish terrorist. But don't forget Dr. Baruch Goldstein, who killed 29 Muslims peacefully at prayer, and former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated by a right-wing Orthodox Jew who opposed Rabin's signing of the Oslo Accords.

Now Jewish identity does interact with African people: In Israel, in South Africa and in America. So from a sociological perspective

their is an area of Jewish and African relations which cannot be neglected. Especially since Jews have made their identity such an issue in all of their affairs (creation of Israel) then they must be also held account to that identity when it imposes on the African interest.

Zionist have been profiting from two sides of the same coin; secular when it suits their agenda and religious when they need to hide behind something solid. And behind many of the Islamophobic attacks online such as in Darfur and even Haiti (It is suspected that Israeli Zionist secretly pushed the message online that Muslims are not doing anything for Haiti)

Some Jewish people have been hiding behind a holocaust while committing the very same acts they decry. The ADL has a sustained attack on African agency when it speaks to these truths. They promote their holocaust as a priority, prosecutes those that object, while stiflingly and denying the African Holocaust. So you cannot have your cake and eat it to. You cannot be active in highlighting what Arabs, Europeans, Christianity, African faiths, and Islam has done, but then put up a sacred cow around your identity when the spot light shifts.

Many European Jews, while sanitizing Jewish involvement and culpability in slavery, are blocking authentic research, threatening and terrorizing those who engage in this research. However they are in the same instance labeling anyone who inhibits the study of the Jewish experience as anti-Semitic. (a misnomer which has been linguistically and politically hijacked, just like the concept of Zionism and a Jewish return to Israel). Why should the gates be open for one group to explore it's world and another group's study blocked? Is this not a form of supremacy?

The ADL does not service the title, it has more been an obstacle to true African development. Operating with a principle of relative morals which are blind to the genocide of Israel. A damage control to soften the horrors of Jewish history. They have a sustained attack of demonizing African leadership and as Africans we must be sensitive to this. The state of Israel has never been a friend to Africa, it is as racist and oppressive as America in the 60's or Apartheid South Africa.


ADL LEGACY

Coming Soon - The term ADL (Anti-Defamation Legauage) is the biggest misnomer. The purpose of the anti-defamation league is damage control for all Israeli genocide, to block and protect Jewish interest (may that interest be righteous or pure villainy). ADL is partners with AIPAC is making sure Israel is funded unconditionally by D.C. Despite its name, it has no interest in defamation. And is part of the White supremacy think, it does not have to be called Jewish Anti-Defamation, in the same vein as genocide only refers to Jews, Holocaust only refers to Jews.

Proud Israeli students signing Weapons to Kill Arab women and children The A-list of the Jews that were part of the Civil Rights struggle does not tell us about the general sentiment of European Jews in the 60's towards African-Americans. The long list of Jewish abolitionist does not tell us about the large slave ownership of Jews in South America. Nor does the list of anti-apartheid supporters tell us about the economic exploitation of Africans which is still a factor in South Africa by White European Jews. Not to mention Civil Rights attracted a lot of people who took part for their own selfish ambitions – it was cool at the time. (such as Charlton Heston).

While you can see Martin Luther Kings uninformed support for Israel and Zionism he also makes several remarks at the exploitation and obstacles Jews presented for the African-American community. Some Jewish historians boast that at least 90 percent of the civil-rights legal effort has come from Jewish attorneys and has long been supported by Jewish money. Martin Luther King Jr. fell under the guidance of Stanley Levinson, who wrote many of King's speeches. And considering the money trail are we surprised he had to support Israel and Zionism?

Joel Spingarn and the Jewish leaders of the NAACP directed Blacks to do the very opposite of what Jews do, and have done, to become successful in society. So the NAACP and most in the Civil Rights Movement adopted the philosophy Spingarn termed “non-economic liberalism”—which encouraged and fostered a beggar’s mentality in Blacks. It suggested that what Blacks desired and deserved of justice, equality and an overall better quality of life could only be achieved through picketing, marching and begging the government. This was never the model that Jews themselves employed. They developed strength through unity, self-love, entrepreneurship, and the establishment of Jewish enclaves all over America. These are the tenets that Brother Marcus Garvey, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan have promoted for Black people. [Nation of Islam]

Zionist author of Broken Alliance, drawing an alliterative shaft from Jesse Jackson's rhetorical quiver, writes that the history of Black-Jewish relations went through three phases: "Cooperation," Confrontation," and "Competition and Conflict." Jews are not shy when they state Jews were a ubiquitous and pervasive force within "black" organizations and the civil rights movement, often exercising significant authority over the black rank and file. "It was Jewish intellectuals, as well as lawyers and fund-raisers, who made the greatest contributions to the civil rights movement."[4] As Melanie Lomax, put it, "Many younger African-Americans don't respect my parents' generation that was so much in the pocket of the Jewish community Younger blacks are intent on breaking that stranglehold."

Holocaust     Holocaust
Jews, emerging from the catastrophe of the Second World War, their recent past shaped by their experience of antisemitism. in the United States and the legacy of Eastern European socialism, latched onto a political agenda which, they believed, would ensure their success in America: Society should not make distinctions based on race or religion. That was good for blacks -- but it was good for Jews, too. Blacks, readying in the 1950's for yet another assault on segregation, emboldened by the Supreme Court's decision in Brown vs. Board of Education abolishing segregated schools, were willing to reach out and work with white allies. They accepted the help of Jews as people who could make a difference. There was genuine love and cooperation in the civil rights movement, but for some blacks and Jews, the main motivation was not an alliance but success. The alliance was a means to an end, not an end in itself. Holocaust

As Jewish political scientists Stanley Rothman and S. Robert Lichter have shown, the motives for many Jewish civil rights activists: ... my activity in the civil rights movement was maybe less in terms of a genuine love, say, for Black people at the time than with some kind of identification with white people who were disaffected from white society.[4] Political scientist Andrew Hacker documented an African-American author who said:

Jews tend to be a little self-righteous about their liberal record, ... we realize that they were pitying us and wanted our gratitude, not the realization of the principles of justice and humanity... Blacks consider [Jews] paternalistic. Black people have destroyed the previous relationship which they had with the Jewish community, in which we were the victims of a kind of paternalism, which is only a benevolent racism. Holocaust

On a separate note let the record show that desegregation in the USA , despite its human right merits, has been economically destructive for the African-American community. Community businesses which were all African-American are now gone, replaced by Arab, Korean, Jewish, chain stores, etc. So this must also factor into our study of the "joys of civil rights."


BLACKS AND JEWS COMPARED

The aftermath of the civil rights movement, the most celebrated example of black-Jewish cooperation, ironically also gave rise to anti-Jewish feelings. Where blacks and Jews were once both outcast victims of discrimination, Jews have since gone on to flourish in mainstream America while things have only worsened for many African-Americans. Today, Jews are wildly over-represented in America's leading universities, law firms, businesses, and in government and the media. Almost 90 percent of college-age Jews are enrolled in higher education. Per-capita Jewish income is almost double that of non-Jews. But one-third of African-Americans live in poverty. One-third of young African-Americans men are in jail or on parole. Half the black men between ages 24 and 35 lack full-time jobs.

Attempts to frame and demonize Farrakhan have always failed to identity with his principle arguments and the facts surrounding his assertions. To every Farrakhan statement is a sneering counter-remark by his detractors. Accusations of jealousy over Jewish success. Hardly jealousy when he clearly give them credit where credit is due. The issue being should such advancements come at the expense of African and others? Also should Jewish advancements mean they use their influence to undermine the advancement of others and the history of others? As John Henrick Clarke correctly stated: There are well over 300 organized White hate groups in the United States. I know of no overt attacks by the Jews being made on any of them. Yet, Jewish people have attacked Louis Farrakhan more than they have attacked the leaders of the Aryan Nation or the American Nazi Party. Are the Jews in America looking for an easy victory or the Truth?

The ADL tried day and night to stop the Million-man movement gaining support from African-American leadership to which Simmons replied:

"[Y]ou (Abraham H. Foxman) should refrain from pressuring African American leaders to denounce Minister Farrakhan and the Millions More Movement. This commemoration is as a real opportunity for establishing healing, reconciliation and fostering a more effective environment for constructive dialogue between Blacks and Jews. We want a society and world were there is no hatred, antisemitism., violence, or poverty...You should, therefore, be working with us toward building more compassion and love among and between all people."


John Henrick Clarke:

I have been a teacher of African World History most of my life and a student of history in general. I know of no evidence indicating such an alliance. The earliest opportunity for a coalition between Blacks and Jews came in 1675 B.C., when an African people called the Egyptians took in the sons and daughters of Abraham, who were fleeing from hunger and starvation in Western Asia. After receiving food, clothing and shelter as well as the foundation for Judaic culture, language and religion, the majority of these a  guests" joined the invaders, the Hyksos (or Shepherd Kings) rather than form an alliance to defend the country of their African benefactors. They had found a greater acceptance in Africans than Africans have ever found in a European-dominated country. With this visit to Africa, the people who would later be known as Jews conspicuously entered world history.[5]

There are well over 300 organized White hate groups in the United States. I know of no overt attacks by the Jews being made on any of them. Yet, Jewish people have attacked Louis Farrakhan more than they have attacked the leaders of the Aryan Nation or the American Nazi Party. Are the Jews in America looking for an easy victory or the Truth? Black Americans have never been their enemy. And they, the Jews, have never been our friends unless it was to their convenience. Neo-Nazism has fully re-emerged in Germany and in other states in Europe. These are people with a nation structure and armies. Why is it that a group of weak Black Americans are getting more attention from the Jews than these powerful White forces rising against them?

Now Clarke nor any historian can be taken in isolation as gospel, as it has been stated we must air on the side of balance when reflecting any controversy. The purpose of constantly stating this is because with the dissemination of history and news we have another responsible to righteousness. The adage "don't blame the messenger" is incorrect from a moral perspective as it negates responsibility. Truth can be used to tell lies. And the only antidote is balance.

It is hard to discuss Desmond Tutu because on one hand he is a complicit agent in White domination in South Africa

as well as being a detractor of the Pan-African struggle and African culture. Tutu was part of the post-94 South Africa sell-out package that keeps Africans as an oppressed economic and social group in their own country.

The farce known as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was served a terrible injustice to the people who have suffered for so long and still continue to suffer because of the actions and acquiescence of people like Tutu who have betrayed their responsibility to Africa.

However Tutu has new life when it comes to Palestine.  And despite having issue with him, we will support him in the instances where he is persecuted because of speaking truth to lies. Tutu drew this comparison on a visit to Jerusalem in 1989, when he said that he is a "black [sic] South African, and if I were to change the names, a description of what is happening in Gaza and the West Bank could describe events in South Africa." He made similar comments in 2002, speaking of "the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about". In 1988, the American Jewish Committee noted that Tutu was strongly critical of Israel's military and other connections with apartheid-era South Africa, and quoted him as saying that "Zionism has very many parallels with racism", on the grounds that it "excludes people on ethnic or other grounds over which they have no control".

Tutu preached a message of forgiveness during a 1989 trip to Israel's Yad Vashem museum, saying "Our Lord would say that in the end the positive thing that can come is the spirit of forgiving, not forgetting, but the spirit of saying: God, this happened to us. We pray for those who made it happen, help us to forgive them and help us so that we in our turn will not make others suffer." Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center calling it "a gratuitous insult to Jews and victims of Nazism everywhere."

 Tutu was subjected to racial slurs during this visit to Israel, with vandals writing "Black Nazi pig" on the walls of the St. George's Cathedral in East Jerusalem, where he was staying. In 2002, when delivering a public lecture in support of divestment, Tutu said "My heart aches. I say why are our memories so short. Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the collective punishment, the home demolitions, in their own history so soon? Have they turned their backs on their profound and noble religious traditions? Have they forgotten that God cares deeply about the downtrodden?" He argued that Israel could never live in security by oppressing another people, and stated:

The worldwide Jewish population is 13.3 million Jews.  Jewish population growth worldwide is close to zero percent. From 2000 to 2001 it rose 0.3%, compared to worldwide population growth of 1.4%. In 2001, 8.3 million Jews lived in the Diaspora and 4.9 million lived in Israel. Just about half of the world's Jews reside in the Americas, with about 46 percent in North America.  Approximately 37% of worldwide Jewry lives in Israel. Israel's Jewish population rose by 1.6% the past year, while the Diaspora population dropped by 0.5%. Europe, including the Asian territories of the Russian Republic and Turkey, accounts for about 12 percent of the total. Fewer than 2 percent of the world's Jews live in Africa and Oceania.

There are more people in the city of Karachi than the entire world Jewry combined. (under 13 million, and this is probably exaggerated)

Israel is one country that has no legislation on incestuous relations. The low numbers of Jews is something they are hypersensitive to. On Wikipedia for example there are more variations of categories related to Jews than any other ethnic-cultural group: "Jews of Irish ancestry", "Jews from Puerto Rico", "American Jews", "Jews of Uganda", "Jews who went to the moon", "Jews who like sushi", The last ones are not true but it is stated to make the point that no other ethnic group is so represented. Why is this being done? Because Jews have such a low population and slow reproduction rate they have to try to inflate their numbers and claim as many notable people as possible. You will notice "Jews who commit genocide" and "Jewish slave owners" is not available.

For most childless couples, in vitro fertilization is an effective but prohibitively expensive road to motherhood that dangles tantalizingly out of reach. Not so in Israel, the New York Times reports. As the "world capital" of in vitro fertilization, the country provides free IVF procedures for up to two "take home babies" for every woman under the age of 45. It's a policy that has earned Israel the title of number one country for the procedure, with surveys showing that the country has 1,657 IVF procedures per million people per year -- a number that dwarfs second place Iceland's 899. Like many countries, Israel defines barrenness as a medical condition. In the United States, health insurers see childbearing as a "socially constructed need," not a necessity. A standard round of IVF therapy costs around $13,775 in the U.S.; in Japan, it's $4,012, and in Belgium, it's $3,109.[3] Why does Israel dedicate so much to this field? We already know the answer.

As a cultural stance, it contrasts starkly with Israel's historical and political imperative to bear children. Though Israelis and Arabs living in Israel are given the same rights to IVF, Israel has worked relentlessly to promote birthrates in an effort to counterbalance the high fertility rates of families in Palestinian territories. In a nod to immorality and against Jewish ethics, the country now encourages gay and single women, when sanctioned by their rabbis, to receive the procedure; there's also a growing movement to make IVF available to gay men using a surrogate.[3]

What does this mean politically and historically? As it relates to the issue of Palestine it is no secret that the Arab population growth rate is 3.71%. We can see that in 10-20 years Israel will have a serious naturally occurring demographic problem—everyone knows this especially Israel. But despite this low population (less than many so-called African tribes) Jews have serious reach in media and finance. Culturally you can go anywhere and find Kosher products and all kinds of cultural accommodations for Jewish people. So the best Jewish defense is power not numbers. White Jews on average have a very high standard of education compared to every other group. According to Dr. Claude Anderson Jewish money "bounces" or recirculates 18 times before leaving Jewish hands in America — the highest of any group.

Now when it comes to the role of the Jewish involvement in the African Holocaust a sophisticated war takes place. Jewish detractors use one word "dominance" to close down an entire discourse. They suggest that because Farrakhan and friends claim " Jewish dominance in the slave trade" they have chosen to target this word "dominance" and in defeating that claim it throws out an entire study as antisemitism. Without presenting anything else but emotion the entire department of Jews and African slaves is squashed.

As we can see the World Jewish population is extremely small, so there is no way they could demographically dominate much. However they have a dominant economical and cultural personality as seen in Hollywood. So Jewish dominance is not just a matter of mere demographics. It could be accurately said statistically that considering the low Jewish population in the world verses there participation in enslaving Africans they represented an equal or greater than average involvement per their numbers in the world population. In other words if the total world population of Jews was 10 and 5 where involved in slavery that means 50%, now if they world population of Germans was 100 and 20 where involved in slavery that is 20%. So the percentage per Jewish population changes the debate and the way the research is looked at. No, Jews could not have been the dominant slavers in general, but in some areas they were (see below). Jews in South Africa are way below 0.01% yet this is not a reflection of their economic power in South Africa.


THE SMART JEW

New Section

There has been the long-standing stereotype that Jews are smarter than everyone else. This is not a Middle century European canard, we see its as the popular sentiment in the Arabia of Islam. The Qur'an is rife with inferences to Jewish intellectual prowess; so smart they they think they could trick G-d. Political correctness trends to discourage these kinds of assumptions, actually when Frances Cress Welsin and Dr. Jeffries even hint at African superiority they get a harder lash from political correctness and are quickly ushered into the pseudo-scientific and race-supremacist corner of the room— not so the Jew. (e.g. Gregory Cochran, Jason Hardy, and Henry Harpending)

One observational basis for inferring that Ashkenazi Jews have high intelligence is their apparent prevalence in intellectually demanding fields. While Ashkenazi Jews make up only about 3% of the U.S. population and 0.2% of the world population, 27% of United States Nobel prize winners in the 20th century, a quarter of Fields Medal winners, 25% of ACM Turing Award winners, half the world's chess champions,  and a quarter of Westinghouse Science Talent Search winners have Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. However, such statistics do not rule out factors other than intelligence, such as institutional biases, class, cultural influence and dispositions to select these areas at the expense of others, and especially social networks. Any group with a cultural disposition to a certain type of study (Ethiopians and long distance running, or even Cubans and Medicine) will produce these results. Actually the smaller the group, and the more culturally isolated it is, the easier for these trends.

Statistical practice is based on focused definition. In sampling, this includes defining the population from which the sample is drawn. A population can be defined as including all people or items with the characteristic one wishes to understand. A true study of a population must look at a broad members in that population, not just the ones who happen to have some remote Jewish ancestry and happen to make the case. Oh did you know his mothers mother was Jewish = Jewish ancestry = add him to the list. Not so the Jews who enslaved African people and ran plantations, they are quickly un-Jewed - There Jewishness is some how not boasted about : "They were not Jews on their mothers side." Also If it is only 5 of us, and we are all family, it is far easier to get an average of 90%:Try that with 1.5 billion people.

After the destruction of the second Temple, most Jews, even farmers, were taught to read and write in childhood. Talmudic scholarship became a leading key to social status. These cultural trends, as seen among Muslims in the West, would produce a predisposition to scholarship, or in the cases of Muslims to memory. None of this marks itself at the genetic level.

Some other considerations would be how racist this classification of so-called Jewish ancestry pops-up. It selectively hugs every genius with a hint of Jew, and quickly discount less desirable members to the All-Jew club. This would be almost like taking every brilliant African-American and defining or focusing on African Americans who perform well to prove African Americans are exceptional or superior in a given area. But this is just a caveat to add to this study. This caveat does not stand as an instant dismissal of Conchran and Co. research. But such research is disturbing for a people who scream antisemitism when cabal or generalizations are mentioned. And now to be boasting about their intellectual superiority.

There is also a Eurocentric bias that says intelligence is in rocket science but not in Bee Bop. That being gifted with abstract numbers is superior to being able to survive the Kalahari desert. It is the type of White supremacy the world needs to treat with extreme caution. Moreover, and perhaps most worrying is it sounds airy familiar to the rhetoric of Nazi Germany, and Jews, of all people, should know where that type of ideology ends up.


TAY-SACHS AND JEWS

When European Jews (USA) get married they are encouraged to be pre-screened to prevent Tay-Sachs. A Brooklyn-based organization, Dor Yeshorim, carries out genetic testing for Jews and gives prospective couples the medical information necessary to make an informed decision. [4] [5] For centuries, the Eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish community maintained a very high "intra"-marriage rate. Thus in the Ashkenazi community, 1-in-25 are Tay-Sachs carriers, and an estimated one in seven Jews is a carrier of some genetic disorder prevalent among Jewish populations. Tay–Sachs disease is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder. In its most common variant, known as infantile Tay–Sachs disease, it causes a relentless deterioration of mental and physical abilities. Jews are afflicted with their own particular disorders. It has been estimated that one in four individuals is a carrier of one of several genetic conditions. Ashkenazim, who until some 40 years ago largely married within the group, carry a dozen recessive genetic anomalies in a relatively high frequency. The most widely known is Tay‑Sachs, a fatal neurodegenerative affliction that causes blindness, mental retardation and death, usually around age five.[6] Other diseases such as Canavan Disease, Niemann-Pick Disease, Familial Dysautonomia, Fanconi anemia, familial dysautonomia, and cystic fibrosis are also common in high percentages due to intermarriage. It has to be stated that Arab populations (Palestine) also have some of these issues because of the habit of cousin-cousin marriages.[7] All of this is to show that Jewish people have a population issue and a subsequent hypersensitivity to low numbers which informs their behavior and politics.


 


HOLOCAUST DENIAL

People are scared in this country [the US], to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful – very powerful. Well, so what? For goodness sake, this is God's world! We live in a moral universe. The apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists Holocaust

Holocaust Desmond Tutu
Holocaust

The estimated number of Jewish fatalities during the Holocaust is usually given as between 5.1 and 6 million victims. However, despite the availability of numerous scholarly works and archival sources on the subject, Holocaust-related figures might never be definitively known. But not only where Jews the victims of Nazi Germany, Africans, homosexuals, Catholics and many other minority groups were also victims.

It is unethical to deny any Holocaust, African or otherwise. However, it is undemocratic to set-up policies to stop people challenging facts regarding particular holocausts.

Ahmadinejad (click for video) academically made a case for reviewing history which on any other topic would have been applauded by the status quo. Principled disagreement does not trample on others humanity. However It is immoral and disrespectful to use a holocaust to justify the continued suffering of another group of people or to mask insincere political objectives.

Specific words exist for racism against Jewish people and US congress monitors global antisemitism (Global Anti-Semitism Review Act) yet no such policies or terms exist for the greatest victims of racism. The perception is this world accepts two forms of racism, the standard kind which applies to Native Americans, Chinese, African-Americans, Arabs, etc, and then their is an elevated more horrible class of racism reserved excluively for Jewish people.

The blatant visibility of physically being African means there is virtually no shelter from global racism from China to Chile. Yet nothing exist in any language for this peculiar treatment of Africans and this is testimony to one thing—lack of agency. Where agency is the ability of a people to project their experience to the world.

The ongoing African Holocaust is denied, ridiculed, mocked, and deemphasized daily (by the same people who go ape crazy when someone "denies" the Jewish Holocaust) without any global sympathy. When we look at the supposed number of Africans lost to the African Holocaust the generally number is the lowest possible projection of 10 - 12 million; Clearly in favor of the enslavers.

Holocaust Denial freedom of speech

So why should Africans accept the 10-12 million offered by the children of their enslavers? Regardless of the evidence African history is mitigated. But Jews have set up a system where to even question the numbers of Jewish people murdered is to be partners with the devil himself. What Hitler did to Jews was a scar on the face of humanity but there can be no distinction between Hilter and the ongoing genocide of Palestinian people by the state of Israel and its sponsors. Or the Holocaust in the Congo under Leopold.


Semitic, antisemitic and Anti-Semitic

From Language for a New African reality

To be Semitic means to speak a Semitic language and in this regard all of Amhara, Gurage, Tigray (etc), all Arabs and all Hebrew Speakers. This means the largest linguistic group in Africa is a Semitic one.

However, if Semitic means “mixed” then the majority Semitic people are Arabs. European Jews in neither of the above classifications are Semitic, because they are racially European, culturally European, and linguistically European. Terms for Jew" in the 1980 Jewish Almanac we read: "Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew." Modern facts show they are genetic Khazars who converted to Judaism.

One cannot be anti-Semitic against a non-Semitic European people. Thus anti-Semitic in its truth sense means to be anti-Arab, Anti-Ethiopian,  anti-Amhara, anti-native Jew, etc. Anti-Semitic is part of a collection of words used globally that are linguistically inaccurate (misnomer). But because of tradition these words continue to have narrow definitions. The discussion of what a word represents and what a word is meant to mean is very important, espcially when it is used as a third rail.

And maybe in this we see the persistence of words like Ethiopia and Habasha, although the roots are inaccurate today they are simple words that are somewhat independent of their etymological origin.

The first sign of agency is the inherent power to define ones terms of reference. Specific words exist for racism against Jewish people and US congress monitors global antisemitism (Global Anti-Semitism Review Act) yet no such policies or terms exist for the greatest victims of racism. The ongoing African Holocaust is denied, ridiculed, mocked, and deemphasized daily without any global sympathy. How is it possible for 60 Million people to have so many terms which articulate their self-interest yet 1 billion Africans seem disabled in this capacity? For 500 years Africans have been on the receiving end of historical racism culminating in the final Great Holocaust of chattel enslavement in the Americas yet nothing exist in any language to speak directly to this ongoing Holocaust.

If you call an African a Nig... it is called racism

If you call an Semitic Arab a Sand.. N… it is called racism

If you call a Latino a Spi… it is called racism

If you call an Chinese a Gou… it is called racism

If you call a Jew a Kyk… it is a special kind of racism called Antisemitism.

Anti-Semitism flies off the tongue so loosely these days and is an betray of the victims of the Germany Nazi holocaust. Actors, anyone seeking attention talks about being victims of antisemitism. Even Paula Abdul (the Jewish dancer) and Mila Kunis (Black Swan) claim for publicity to being victim of antisemitism. Yet when Africans play the "race card" they are fashioned as having a "chip on their shoulder". What is the specific term in the English language for racism which 1 billion plus Africans live in the shadow of every day? Dogs, lynch mobs, hoses, apartheid, slavery, genocide, mustard gas, HIV experiments, Gene warfare (created by Israel and Apartheid South Africa) and yet no word exist to describe the peculiarity of this ongoing and unrelenting African oppression.

The blatant visibility of physically being African means there is virtually no shelter from global racism from China to Chile. Yet nothing exist in any language for this peculiar treatment of Africans and this is testimony to one thing—lack of agency. Where agency is the ability of a people to project their experience to the world.

 


CURSE OF HAM

Evidence we have provided below locates the origin of these racist elaborations with the Jewish Babylonian Talmud. Dr. Harold Brackmanis

the strongest proponent of this theme but one finds a morass of argumentation centering around authenticity of sources,accuracy of translations, the use of pun, allegory, literalism, paucity of documentation, "ambiguities and complexities"

of midrashic texts, etc., etc. Others appear to be positioning themselves for the impending firestorm over the claim that the Myth "played a relatively minor role" in slavery.

But even the most vociferous of the defenders of rabbinical honor, likeDavid M. Goldenberg (in Cornel West's book), admit that the Talmudic rabbis had a "preference" for light skin and that their stories "see dark skin as a form of divine punishment". One author believes that the motive of the Talmudic rabbis in promoting their version of the Curse was to justify the ancient Hebrew enslavement of the Canaanites. What is not in dispute, however, is the ready acceptance of this racist construct by nearly every religious philosophy, culture and tradition on earth to justify their mistreatment of the Black race.

The Hamitic Myth itself has also taken on at least one other form in relation to Blackness (other versions have made Ham into a white man).

Once Europeans saw evidence of the great African civilizations, they hastened to reinterpret the Hamitic Myth to suggest that the Hamites were in fact Europeans [!] who went into Africa bringing this civilization with them. This version of the Myth satisfied their academic needs--and was used when necessary by Jewish academics like C.G. Seligmanamong others. But, for the most part, their economic, social, religious, and political needs were met in the global promotion of the original rabbinical version.

Some argue that the Talmudic story is so miniscule--amounting to just a few sentences within a voluminous written tradition--that there is no way to claim it as the birthplace of Western racism and slavery. We would suggest that the story was quickly amplified in concert with the growing Jewish  interest in the slave trade. At one time slavery was a profitable enterprise and all races were deemed fit for the role. We suspect that Africans soon became the worker of choice (just as the early American colonists found Blacks to be physically superior), and adjusted their supply to fit this demand. Rabbis, who as charities also benefited from the trade, willingly altered their racial interpretation of the Ham story to fit this economic imperative. Soon we find legendary Jewish scholars like Moses Maimonides, a man who the Encyclopedia of the Jewish Religion refers to as "the symbol of the pure and orthodox faith," spewing racist themes in his Guide to the Perplexed:

T]he Negroes found in the remote South, and those who resemble them from among them that are with us in these climes. The status of those is like that of irrational animals. To my mind they do not have the rank of men, but have among the beings a rank lower than the rank of man but higher than the rank of apes. For they have the external shape and lineaments of a man and a faculty of discernment that is superior to that of the apes Holocaust

Ideas were spread in those times the same way spices, rum and pork were spread--by way of the international merchants. The Jews monopolized this commerce, and these same Jewish merchant/travelers in the 12th century were denigrating the "sons of Ham" in their writings about the Africans. In the American South, the Jewish peddler was held in high esteem and eagerly anticipated by his rural, slaveholding customers for the goods and news, and for his Biblical ruminations. I suspect that this--multiplied by many centuries and many peddlers and many nations--is how a tiny Talmudic kernel can be made the universal creed.

Scholar St. Clair Drake hypothesizes that "special conditions in Mesopotamia generated rabbinic stories associating Negroidness with excessive and aberrant sexuality and Noah's curse." Drake argues that the Mesopotamia Jews negatively encountered significant numbers of Africans called the Zanj. In fact, Drake insists that "some Jews had a stake in maintaining slavery. They were not just supervisors of slave labor; eventually, they became slave owners and dealers in the slave grade. A Diaspora Jewish culture with values quite different from those in Palestine developed."  He explains as follows.

  1. During the first century A.D.…among Babylonian Jewry was a class of native born aristocrats.…Under these circumstances, parts of the Jewish community became involved in the importation and exploitation of "Zanj" labor in southern Mesopotamia. Insofar as the landed upper class followed the ancient Babylonian pattern, it would have been a slaveholding class. And it is likely that some of the farmers and tradesmen held slaves as well. The Jewish people were also represented in commerce, in manufacturing, and in the ownership of vessels that traded in the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean, where they were in direct contact with the "Zanj."

These negative features were not found in the Jerusalem Talmud where Black slavery was not a feature (See the work of Dr. Charsee McIntyre).



General Uses of the Hamitic Myth

The Hamitic Myth has been liberally applied whenever historical circumstances required the aggressive re-assertion of white supremacy. It can be shown to be at the root in the justification of the slave trade and the displacement and murder of the American Indians. It was used to attack the Civil Rights Movement, to undermine abolitionism, to buttress the proslavery Confederacy, and was used as the instrument of control in Jim Crow.

Many people have adopted the mantle of "Chosen People" via the Hamitic Myth including the Puritans, the Jews, the Boers, the Afrikaners, and the Nazis, among many others. Even the Cherokees used it to justify their enslavement of the African (interestingly, it was "mixed-blood" Cherokees who engaged in this practice, just as it was mulatto "Blacks" who held African slaves). Southern Christians then used the same Hamitic Myth to justify the extermination of the Cherokees. Christians further employed the "Chosen People" myth of the slaveholding ancient Hebrews to justify their own slaveholding. Whites have even gone so far as to say that the snake in the Garden of Eden was the Black Man.

The slave trade to the Islamic world put the Myth to full use, and Islamic clerics expounded on the curse of Blackness (Brackman also reveals [p. 96] that many of the "camel-riding" slave traders were Jewish). Colonial missionaries like Cotton Mather of Massachusetts adopted the Myth as did the Boers of South Africa. It was roared from hundreds of American pulpits--North and South. Belgian colonizers appropriated it when they installed Tutsi overlords over former Hutu kingdoms, leading to the horrifying violence in Rawanda and Burundi. It is also said to be the basis of the Plessy v. Ferguson ruling. The founder of Mormons, Joseph Smith, and high official Brigham Young both used the Myth to condemn the Black man and exclude his participation in their cult. The Jehovah's Witnesses readily printed it as fact in the Watchtower.

In various translations of the rabbinical texts, we find themes of bestiality, sodomy, castration, homosexuality, drunkenness, and promiscuity, all applied to the vary nature of Ham and by extension to the race he presumably fathered. The rabbi's deviant sexual elaborations may have played a role in the feverish and overtly sexual violence against Blacks in the form of rapes and lynchings.

Though there is a direct linkage to the Hamitic Myth in many historical circumstances, not all belief in Black inferiority is directly traceable to the Myth. The presidents of Harvard, Princeton, and Wm. & Mary, Samuel Morse (the inventor of Morse Code), Thomas Jefferson, and even most of the white abolitionists expressed their belief in Black inferiority but they used other non-Biblical justifications, including history, anthropology, phrenology, chemistry, etc. It is difficult to say if the pervasiveness of the Hamitic Myth affected their "scientific" theorizing.

In 1550, Spain suspended its crusade of world conquest until the justification for these wars could be established. By connecting the native peoples with Africans, the Hamitic Myth could be extended globally, serving the "godly" aims of the conquerors.

 


ISRAEL AND APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA

Glenn Frankel, who teaches journalism at Stanford University, was Southern Africa, Jerusalem, and London bureau chief for the Washington Post and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. The Unspoken Alliance: Israel's Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa by Sasha Polakow-Suransky will be published May 25 by Pantheon Books.

History is a great teacher, but sometimes it packs a nasty sense of irony. A case in point: South African Prime Minister John Vorster's visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem in April 1976, where he laid a wreath to the victims of the German Reich he once extolled.

It's bad enough that a former Nazi sympathizer was treated like an honored guest by the Jewish state. Even worse was the purpose behind Vorster's trip to Israel: to cement the extensive military relationship between Israel and the apartheid regime, a partnership that violated international law and illicitly provided the white-minority government with the weaponry and technology to help sustain its grip on power and its oppression of the black majority over two decades.

Like many illicit love affairs, the back-door relationship between Israel and the apartheid regime was secret, duplicitous, thrilling for the parties involved -- and ultimately damaging to both. Each insisted at the time that theirs was just a minor flirtation, with few regrets or expressions of remorse. Inevitably it ended badly, tainting everyone it touched, including leaders of American Jewish organizations who shredded their credibility by endorsing and parroting the blatant falsehoods they were fed by Israeli officials. And it still hovers like a toxic cloud over Israel's international reputation, providing ammunition to those who use the comparison between Israel's 43-year military rule over Palestinians and the now-defunct system of white domination known as apartheid.

Now comes Sasha Polakow-Suransky, who is an editor at Foreign Affairs magazine, a Rhodes scholar, and an American Jew whose parents emigrated to the United States from South Africa. His singular achievement in his new book, The Unspoken Alliance: Israel's Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa scheduled for publication on May 25, is to have unearthed more than 7,000 pages of heretofore secret documents from the bowels of South Africa's Defense Ministry, Foreign Ministry, and Armscor, the state defense contractor, including the secret 1975 military cooperation agreement signed by defense ministers Shimon Peres and P.W. Botha.

The Israeli government sought to block release of the pact to the author, but the post-apartheid South African government ignored its protests. The Afrocam-majority government, led by the African National Congress, "is far less concerned with keeping old secrets than with protecting its own accumulated dirty laundry after 15 years in power," Polakow-Suransky notes. Beyond locating the secret papers, he also interviewed South Africans and Israelis who played key roles in forging and promoting the partnership. The result is the best-documented, most thorough, and most credible account ever offered of the secret marriage between the apartheid state and Israel.

Polakow-Suransky puts Israel's annual military exports to South Africa between 1974 and 1993 at $600 million, which made South Africa Israel's second or third largest trading partner after the United States and Britain. Military aircraft updates in the mid-1980s alone accounted for some $2 billion, according to correspondence he obtained. He puts the total military trade between the countries at well above $10 billion over the two decades.

Israel reaped big profits, but paid a price in moral standing. By focusing solely on its purported strategic value to the United States, Israel and its supporters have tended to downgrade the country's real case for preserving a special relationship with its staunch ally. Foreign-policy realists argue that the price Washington pays in the Muslim world for its support of Israel far outweighs whatever strategic value the Jewish state provides. The more compelling case has always focused on Israel's character as a robust democracy that shares American values. But the clandestine alliance with South Africa undermined Israel's rightful claim on U.S. admiration and support. After all, if Israel is just another standard-issue country that conducts business with pariah states and lies about it, why should America be concerned about its fate?

David Ben-Gurion, Israel's founding father, understood this, routinely condemned apartheid and sought to ally his country with the new African-governed nations of sub-Saharan Africa that emerged from colonial rule in the late 1950s and early 1960s. But the balance of forces began to change dramatically after the 1967 Six-Day War, when Israel seized control of East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza. Ben-Gurion's heirs -- Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres, and Moshe Dayan, second-generation leaders of the ruling Labor Party -- worked to transform Israel into a mini super power and had no qualms about cooperating with South Africa to get there. "It was not a shotgun marriage," writes Polakow-Suransky.

The 1973 Yom Kippur War put the seal on the shift. Egypt succeeded in framing the war as a Zionist invasion of the African continent, and more than 20 African states severed diplomatic ties with Israel. South Africa, by contrast, furnished Israel with spare parts for its Mirage jet fighters, and South Africa's substantial Jewish community, encouraged by its government, poured money and support into the Zionist state. The two countries were on their way to becoming, in Polakow-Suranskys words, "brothers in arms."

The relationship started as a marriage of self-interest. South African money helped Israel became a major arms manufacturer and exporter and funded its high-tech economy, while Pretoria gained access to cutting-edge weapons and military technology at a time when most of the world sought to isolate and condemn the apartheid regime. For the ensuing two decades Israel continued to publicly denounce apartheid while at the same time secretly propping up the white-minority government and helping sustain racial supremacy.

Peres had been Ben-Gurion's gifted protege and a key architect in building Israel's defense establishment and its nuclear capability during his years as director general of the Defense Ministry. When he became defense minister after the Yom Kippur War, he sought to grow the military-industrial complex in part with millions from the arms export market, which Polakow-Suransky reports increased 15-fold between 1973 and 1981. Early on his new role, Peres secretly visited Pretoria. In a memo afterward, he told his South African hosts that their mutual cooperation was based not only on common interest, "but also on the unshakeable foundations of our common hatred of injustice and our refusal to submit to it." That same year the two governments began holding biannual gatherings for Defense Ministry officials and arms industry exporters and an annual strategic cooperation conference between intelligence officials.

After Peres and Botha signed their secret security pact in April 1975, Israel sold tanks, fighter aircraft, and long-range missiles to Pretoria and offered to sell nuclear warheads as well. Israel also began to act as middleman, buying arms from countries that refused ostensibly to do business with Pretoria and passing them on to the regime. All of this continued even after the United Nations Security Council passed a mandatory arms embargo against South Africa in November 1977. Menachem Begin's rightist Likud came to power that same year, and relations became even stronger.

Along the way, Polakow-Suransky introduces the unsung actors who helped cement the relationship. One of the key figures was Yitzhak Unna, a skilled, pragmatic and two-fisted Israeli diplomat who became counsel general in Johannesburg in 1969 and was later promoted to ambassador. Unna learned to speak Afrikaans, befriended the former Nazi sympathizer who headed South Africa's bureau of state security and launched a series of deals that brought the two countries closer together. Then there was Binyamin Telem, former commander of Israel's navy, who handled defense contracts with Armscor. Both men saw themselves as anti-racists -- Telem insisted that the Israeli embassy pay its black employees at the same rate as whites -- but both deepened the ties and approved contracts in the millions. Included were training and weapons systems that helped the South African military suppress internal revolts against apartheid. Israeli security companies and former military men also trained and equipped the repressive police forces of the sham puppet states known as Bantustans that South Africa sought to establish in the 1970s and 1980s.

By 1979, Polakow-Suransky writes, South Africa was Israel's single largest arms customer, accounting for 35 percent of its military exports. South Africa supplied Israel a 500-ton stockpile of uranium for its nuclear program. In turn, Israel sold South Africa 30 grams of tritium, a radioactive substance that helped increase the explosive power of its thermonuclear weapons. The extent of Israeli-South African cooperation was symbolized in September 1979 by a double flash over the South Atlantic that analysts believed came from an Israeli nuclear bomb test, undertaken with South African cooperation. To this day the details remain classified.

In the early days of the arms supply pact, Israel could argue that many Western countries, including the United States, had similar surreptitious relationships with the apartheid regime. But by 1980 Israel was the last major violator of the arms embargo. It stuck with South Africa throughout the 1980s when the regime clung to power in the face of international condemnation and intense rounds of political unrest in the black townships.

By 1987 the apartheid regime was struggling to cope with the combination of internal unrest and international condemnation to the point where even Israel was forced to take notice. A key motivator was Section 508, an amendment to the anti-apartheid sanctions bill that passed the U.S. Congress in 1986 and survived President Ronald Reagan's veto. It required the State Department to produce an annual report on countries violating the arms embargo. The first one, issued in April 1987, reported that Israel had violated the international ban on arm sales "on a regular basis." The report gave South Africa's opponents within the Israeli government and their American Jewish allies ammunition to force Israel to adapt a mild set of sanctions against South Africa. I was in Jerusalem when Israel admitted publicly for the first time that it had significant military ties with South Africa and pledged not to enter into any new agreements -- which meant, of course, that existing agreements would be maintained. It was, writes Polakow-Suransky, "little more than a cosmetic gesture."

From the start, spokesmen for American Jewish organizations acted as apologists or dupes for Israel's arms sales. Moshe Decter, a respected director of research for the American Jewish Committee, wrote in the New York Times in 1976 that Israel's arms trade with South Africa was "dwarfed into insignificance" compared to that of other countries and said that to claim otherwise was "rank cynicism, rampant hypocrisy and anti-Semitic prejudice." In a March 1986 debate televised on PBS, Rabbi David Saperstein, a leader of the Reform Jewish movement and outspoken opponent of apartheid, claimed Israeli involvement with South Africa was negligible. He conceded that there may have been arms sales during the rightist Likud years in power from 1977 to 1984, but stated that under Shimon Peres, who served as prime minister between 1984 and 1986, "there have been no new arms sales." In fact, some of the biggest military contracts and cooperative ventures were signed during Peres's watch.

The Anti-Defamation League participated in a blatant propaganda campaign against Nelson Mandela and the ANC in the mid 1980s and employed an alleged "fact-finder" named Roy Bullock to spy on the anti-apartheid campaign in the United States -- a service he was simultaneously performing for the South African government. The ADL defended the white regime's purported constitutional reforms while denouncing the ANC as "totalitarian, anti-humane, anti-democratic, anti-Israel, and anti-American." (In fairness, the ADL later changed its tune. After his release in 1990, Mandela met in Geneva with a number of American Jewish leaders, including ADL president Abe Foxman, who emerged to call the ANC leader "a great hero of freedom.")

Polakow-Suransky is no knee-jerk critic of Israel, and he tells his story more in sorrow than anger. He grants that the secret alliance had its uses. To the extent it enhanced Israel's security and comfort zone, it may have helped pave the path to peace efforts. Elazar Granot, a certified dove who is a former left-wing Knesset member and ambassador to the new South Africa, says as much. "I had to take into consideration that maybe Rabin and Peres were able to go to the Oslo agreements because they believed that Israel was strong enough to defend itself," he tells the author. "Most of the work that was done -- I'm talking about the new kinds of weapons -- was done in South Africa."

Polakow-Suransky sees in the excoriation of Jimmy Carter's 2006 book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid by American Jewish leaders an echo of their reflexive defense of Israel vis-a-vis South Africa in the 1970s and 1980s. The author himself draws uncomfortable parallels between apartheid and Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, noting that both involved the creation of a system that stifled freedom of movement and labor, denied citizenship and produced homelessness, separation, and disenfranchisement. As the Palestinian population continues to grow and eventually becomes the majority -- and Jews the minority -- in the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean, the parallels with apartheid may become increasingly uncomfortable. Even Prime Minister Ehud Olmert agreed, observing in 2007 that if Israel failed to negotiate a two-state solution with the Palestinians, it would inevitably "face a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights."

"The apartheid analogy may be inexact today," Polakow-Suransky warns, "but it won't be forever."

I've always believed the apartheid analogy produces more heat than light. But it's a comparison that Israel itself invited with its longstanding partnership with the white-minority regime. While Israel profited from the alliance, it paid a heavy price. Moral standing in the international community doesn't come with an obvious price tag, nor does it command an influential lobby of corporate and military interests working tirelessly on its behalf. But it does have value and its absence has consequences. The anti-Israel divestment campaign that is slowly gathering steam in college campuses across the United States and Europe is one such potential consequence. This movement, backed both by genuine supporters of the Palestinians and by Arab governments whose motives are far more cynical, once again seeks to equate Zionism with racism and rob Israel of its hard-earned legitimacy by portraying it as, in Polakow-Suransky's phrase, "a latter-day South Africa." The Israeli government has provided this movement with plenty of ammunition, including the sad and sordid saga that he so carefully unearths in his important new book.


RACISM AGAINST ETHIOPIAN JEWS IN ISRAEL


   
Oppression is wrong period, not periodically
 
' Alik Shahadah

 

ቤተ እስራኤል Or Beta Israel.Nearly all of the Ethiopian Beta Israel community, more than 120,000 people, reside in Israel under its Law of Return,which gives Jews and those with Jewish parents or grandparents, and all of their spouses, the right to settle in Israel and obtain citizenship.

The Israeli government has mounted rescue operations, most notably during Operation Moses (1984) and Operation Solomon (1991), for their migration when civil war and famine threatened the Jewish populations within Ethiopia. Today 81,000 Ethiopian Israelis were born in Ethiopia, while 38,500 or 32% of the community are native born Israelis. Operation Solomon and subsequent so-called "rescues from persecution" was the solution to a labor shortage in Israel. The same reason Apartheid South Africa created Bantustans in South Africa-- as a labor pool. What Israel needed was cheap uneducated Black bodies to serve at cannon fodder for against the Palestine, to clean the streets of Tel Aviv, and to make up the "slave" lower-class social sector.

The facts seem to show that these attitudes are not confined to specific areas of the country but rather represent a collective phenomenon within Israeli society. After the mass exodus by the Israel army of the Beta Israel (or Fallasha) from Ethiopia it was reported that it was a ploy to address the armies needs for low ranking front line solider's and domestic servants for the Jewish White elite. It has to be stated that many Ethiopian Jews, despite being historically Jewish far longer than the European Jewry is not considered fully Jewish... Now we know that they speak a native semitic language, while the European Jews do not so again we see how African people, regardless of their history in Islam, Christianity or Judaism are perceived globally.


BRAINWASHED AND EUROPEANIZED

Nearly 95 percent of Ethiopian immigrant children were sent to the state-funded boarding schools, which are based on a combination of kibbutz life and traditional European away- from-home education. They studied Hebrew (a language most of their parents did not speak), and their native Amharic and Tigrigna began to fade. In some of these schools, a new generation of Ethiopian Jews began to believe they came from a backward, primitive culture that they must forget. They became a confused hybrid, neither Israeli nor Ethiopian, ersatz characters who increasingly copy the style and fashion of Rastafarians or African- American hip-hop icons in their search for an identity. Many of the schools have become breeding grounds for dysfunctional Ethiopian Jews, churning out poorly educated graduates at best, or maladjusted youth who are turning increasingly to criminal activity.

"The government has taken the kids away from the parents and said, 'I know what's best for your children,'" said Nega Wondmeneh, an Ethiopian who runs a counseling center at the Tel Aviv bus station for troubled young Ethiopians. "The kids start getting an inferiority complex," Wondmeneh said. "Some of them grow up to become street kids and come [to the bus station] to drink, take drugs and steal."

Some in their struggling to fit in they have become the oppressors of the native Palestinians. In some cases, Ethiopian Jews are doing exactly as Israel had hoped: joining the landscape of White Israeli culture, serving in the army as part of their national service, speaking fluent Hebrew and taking the Israeli side in the struggle against the Palestinians. "How many Arabs have you killed?" Danny Abebe teased Oren Tsegaye as they drove back from Ramla.

NEW BLACK IDENTITY

And so an alienated young generation is seeking its identity in global Black icons rather than its Jewish heritage. Kaplan calls the phenomenon "rap, reggae and Reeboks." "Israelis say Ethiopians are Black but Ethiopians did not consider themselves to be Black," Kaplan said. "They became Black when they came to Israel. You see young people identifying with reggae music, Afro-Caribbean culture that people tend to view as natural, but it's not natural. It's a choice they made, because it speaks to them."


SUICIDE AND ETHIOPIANS IN ISRAEL

Why the high suicide rate? Let me list a few reasons:

  1. Pathetic absorption. The Israeli government failed on a massive level. They were warned. They were pleaded with. They were offered real, professional help – but the government turned it all down and did the absorption its way.
  2. Almost no job opportunities for Ethiopian men. Even many Ethiopian college graduates end up working in menial jobs.
  3. Discrimination by the Ashkenazi elite (and a lot of other people, too).
  4. No role models. This is now starting to change as young Ethiopian Jews begin to succeed in professions.
  5. The (largely successful) attempt by Ashkenazi haredim to keep Ethiopian rabbis out of positions of authority.
  6. No Old Boys network to rely on for proteksia.
  7. Skin color that makes them identifiable as Ethiopian Jews, and allows others to profile them with ease. [3]


TERRIBLE RACISM

Avi Maspin an Ethiopian Jew (Beta Israel) reports that examples of racism in Israeli schools show that some insitutions pride themselves on its low the number of Ethiopian students. On the website of a school in the north, the administration proudly proclaims that "there is a small quantity of Ethiopian children in our educational institution." It should be noted that no other ethnic groups are mentioned.

In another instance, in a kindergarten in southern Israel Ethiopian children were removed from the school after other children's parents protested that there were too many of them. In coming days, a lawsuit is to be filed against the mayor of the city.

Even FIDEL, which dubs itself the "Association for Education and Social Integration of Ethiopian Jews in Israel," encountered difficulties when it was searching for an office in the center of the country.

Representatives from the organization went on a tour of potential locale but when the landlord of the building heard Ethiopians planned to occupy his property, he brusquely suggested they look elsewhere.

"There is an office with a lot of medicine nearby, I don't want any problems with theft and drugs," the owner told them.

Another group called Tebeka, which carries the slogan "Advocacy for Equality and Justice for Ethiopian Israelis," filed complaints in a number of incidences of racism across Israel. According to agency representatives, since the beginning of 2007, their office has received over 100 appeals for help.

Attorney Yael Segel-Maklis, manager of the judicial affairs department at Tebeka, told Ynet that "there is a fundamental problem of illegitimacy with regard to Ethiopian immigrants. Israeli society is shooting itself in the foot because it has caused a frustrated generation (of Ethiopians) to grow up here, and we're seeing all of the severe consequences of this."

Racism in Israel


At the headquarters for the struggle for social equality for Jewish Ethiopians there are plans to call the attention of Israeli society to the problem of racism and other negative social attitudes towards Ethiopian immigrants.

Gadi Yevrakan, the director of the struggle, said that he is "no longer surprised by anything, there is no difference between the neo-Nazis…and all those that discriminate against Jews from Ethiopia."

The Israel Association for Ethiopian Jews (IAEJ) intends to send letters to the Attorney General requesting that he check up on local authorities in their handling of absorption of Ethiopian Jews.

Avi Maspin, a spokesman for IAEJ, said that "racism is a word that I have feared using until now, because I did not believe that it could exist in Israel, but the time has come to call a spade a spade. Israeli society is profoundly infected by racism and unfortunately there is no suitable punishment for racism in Israel."


LEMBA SOUTHERN AFRICA

The name "Lemba" may originate in chilemba, a Swahili word for turbans worn by East Africans or lembi a Bantu word meaning "respected foreigner"

The Lemba the "lost tribes of Israel". The Lemba Cultural Association has approached the South African Jewish (whites) Board of Deputies asking for the Lemba to be recognized as Jews by the Jewish community.

South African Jews have been aware of the Lemba but have never regarded them more than an "intriguing curiosity." The Association complained that "we like many non-European Jews are simply the victims of racism at the hands of the European Jewish establishment worldwide" and threatened to start a campaign to "protest and ultimately destroy 'Jewish apartheid.'

The Lemba people of SA and Zimbabwe may look like their compatriots, but they follow a very different set of customs and traditions. They do not eat pork, they practise male circumcision, they ritually slaughter their animals, some of their men wear skull caps and they put a Magen David on their gravestones.

And now, DNA tests in London have confirmed the Semitic origin of the 80,000-odd Lemba tribesmen. The line is paternal with about seven Semetic men having started the tribe. Their oral traditions claim that their ancestors were Jews who fled the Holy Land about 2,500 years ago. For the most part, many Lemba in SA still practice a form of Judaism, while their Zimbabwean counterparts mostly practice Christianity. "Christianity is my religion, and Judaism is my culture," explains Perez Hamandishe, a pastor and Zimbabwean MDC MP. The Lemba have a sacred prayer language which is a mixture of Hebrew and Arabic, also pointing to their roots in Israel and Yemen. Some of the Zimbabweans are Muslims. It may sound like another myth of a lost tribe of Israel, but British scientists have carried out DNA tests which have confirmed their Semitic origin. These tests back up the group's belief that a group of perhaps seven men married African women and settled on the continent. The Lemba, who number perhaps 80,000, live in central Zimbabwe and the north of South Africa.

 


HEBREW ISRALITES IN Dimona (דִּימוֹנָה‎‎)


   
From the American pot to the Israeli fire
 
 

Ben Ammi and 350 of his followers first settled in Liberia, and in 1969 began moving to Israel, entering the country on temporary visas that were periodically renewed. The African Hebrews started to arrive in Dimona soon after the Six Day War but as their numbers grew, the Chief Rabbinate of Israel ruled that they were not Jews, and therefore not entitled to Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return. However, members of the group continued to arrive and settled in the desert community of Dimona.

For two decades, their population continued growing through natural increase and illegal immigration (according to Israeli reports). The Hebrews have never officially claimed to be Jews, they follow the Hebrew tradition which is closer to the original Hebrews of the Bible. They see White Jews as false converts to Judaism, a legacy stolen from history. Part of their belief claim to trace the tribes of Israel to the shores of West Africa and then to the New World (via enslavement). Academically this is mythology for a million of reasons, but is enshrined in their belief system and must therefore be given respect under the principles of religious beliefs. The same way White Jews seem themselves as connected to the Ancient Israelites. This is even less likely than the African Hebrew's claim.

CULT OR NATION?

The Hebrews have been called a cult by their detractors, but the word cult carries serious connotations which mean we must be careful with these labels. There might be elements which fit the profile of a cult, but because of the association with cultism it would cause unfair comparisons. It could equally be argued that the Hebrew community is a sub-nation with fundamental values practised monolithically across a small community. The structure of nationhood in their communities is arguable a mirco-nation within a nation; like Rasta communities in Ethiopia.

VICTIMS OF RACISM

They have been victims of serious racial hatred at the hands of White Jewish settlers and continue to be seen as a curiosity at best or a unwelcome menace at worse. In 1986 200 border police officers, armed with guns, tear gas grenade launchers, helicopters and tanks descended on the communal village of African Hebrew Israelites. Wearing all white and heeding their leader's call to "stay in your places" the community, stood its ground, a day it memorializes as the Day of the Show of Strength.

The soldiers were sent to prevent a peaceful march on Jerusalem to demand the release of 50 members of the Hebrew community that had been taken out of their beds for deportation, under the orders of then-Interior Minister Shimon Peres.

Today the Hebrews of Israel live a traditional lifestyle and are very health oriented and close to nature. They are known for their music and hospitality. As a deeply moral society they practise many African tradition customs such as Polygyny. However, as the younger generation becomes more integrated into Israeli society we see parallels face by all traditional communities as the glare of the bright lights causes the values to be lost across the generational gap. The original African centred orientation is slipping into Israeli liberal Westernization.

MILTARY SERVICE CONTROVERSY

Some members of the Hebrew community, in exchange for citizenship, have become members of the Israeli army, putting them at odds with the broader Pan-African struggle. It is a source of tension as Pan-Africanism is anti-imperialistic and has no tolerance for neocolonialism or occupation. African must not under any circumstance by on the side of oppression especially considering the oppression visited to Africa by colonialist. And the history of a similar race-based oppression in South Africa's apartheid regime. We can coexist in foreign lands if permission is given by other oppressed people. Africans cannot be active in the oppression of native Australian people, native American people, Native Arabs or any other group. We should not enjoy the fruits of colonialism, for to share in its fruits is to share in its curse. The same dilemma is also true for Ethiopian Jews who Israel uses to fight against the native Palestinians.


ISRAEL AND REFUGEES

 

While the right to seek and enjoy asylum from persecution is a human right enshrined in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the State of Israel is a signatory to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, it is a right that it is not fully protected in Israel today.  Israel often evades its international law obligations to refugees by refraining from recognizing them as such. Due to a systematic reluctance to recognize rights, since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, only 141 individuals have been recognized as refugees in accordance with the Refugee Convention.

Individuals from certain countries of origin are granted an informal type of group protection, a form of protection that is inferior to that which Israel is required to grant pursuant to the Refugee Convention. For example, persons from Sudan and Eritrea, who constitute more than 85 per cent of the asylum seeker population in Israel, do not have access to the Refugee Status Determination (RSD) procedure. Others nationals who are eligible to apply for refugee status must wait years for their application to be determined and live in a prolonged state of limbo. One of the proposed amendments is that it will not be possible to apply for asylum after 12 months from date of arrival.

In Israel there are currently more than 30,000 asylum seekers and refugees. As mentioned, approximately 85 per cent are Sudanese and Eritrean nations who have escaped ethnic persecution and attack.  They make the perilous journey crossing through the Egyptian Sinai desert to enter Israel and are at risk of deadly attacks by the Egyptian military and being held hostage by smugglers.  Despite the fact that 96 per cent of asylum requests filed by Eritreans worldwide in 2008 were accepted, the Israeli government refuses to even consider their applications. Additionally, nationals of enemy states such as Sudan are also ineligible for protection. As a result, Eritrean and Sudanese individuals receive no entitlements or guarantees in Israel other than immunity from deportation.

We strongly reject Interior Minister's Yishai claim that only 0.01% of those entering are refugees while the rest are migrant workers and that this 'poses an existential threat to Israel'.


 


ISRAEL AND THE CONGO

This has been taken from http://www.wakeupfromyourslumber.com/node/8705

Maurice Templesman is one of the top funders of Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. Templesman was the unofficial ambassador to the Congo (Zaire) for years, but a new Israeli-American tycoon has replaced him. In the world of bling bling and bling bang, some things change, some stay the same. The CIA, the MOSSAD, the big mining companies, the offshore accounts and weapons deals—all hidden by the Western media.

The holocaust in Central Africa has claimed some six to ten million people in Congo since 1996, with 1500 people dying daily. But while the Africans are the victims of perpetual Holocaust, the persecutors hide behind history, complaining that they are the persecuted, or pretending they are the saviors. Who is responsible?

For Israeli-American Dan Gertler, business in blood drenched Congo is not merely business, it is a quest for the Holy Grail. Young Dan Gertler goes nowhere—does nothing—without the spiritual guidance of Brooklyn-born Rabbi Chaim Yaakov Leibovitch, a personal friend of Condoleeza Rice. Gertler and Leibovitch are two of the principals behind a diamond mining company, Emaxon Finance Corporation, involved in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Gertler and gang won the majority rights to the diamonds from the state mining company, Société Minière de Bakwange, MIBA, found near the government-controlled town of Mbuji-Mayi, the rough diamond capital of the world.

Emaxon Finance Corp. has apparently out-maneuvered diamond competitors, especially the big rivals Energem and De Beers. Energem is one of the many shady mining companies connected to Anthony Teixeira, a Portuguese born businessman now residing in South Africa whose daughter married Congolese warlord Jean-Pierre Bemba. The warlord’s deadly battle in Congo in March 2007 was a bid between rival agents—Jean-Pierre Bemba and Joseph Kabila—to be the black gatekeeper for the mining cartels run by dynastic families like Templesman, Oppenheimer, Mendell, Forrest, Blattner, Hertzov, Gertler and Steinmetz, and for companies like NIKANOR, whose stock prices rose early in July 2006 in expectation of a July 30th “win” for Joseph Kabila. Africa Confidential called President Kabila’s 2003 visit to the Bush White House a “coup” for the Israeli diamond magnates Dan Gertler and Beny Steinmetz.

Canadian-based Energem, formerly DiamondWorks, is owned by British mercenary Tony Buckingham and its director/shareholders include Mario and Tony Teixeira, J.P. Morgan, and Gertler's partner Israeli-American Beny Steinmetz (50%). Through subsidiary Branch Energy, the Energem-DiamondWorks gang has perpetuated war in 11 African countries. In December 2007, Energem re-launched itself on the London Stock Market with the newly laundered image of a renewable energy company. Regarding diamonds, it said only it "had decided to give up exploration rights in the Central African Republic."The Energem spokesman explained that Tony Teixeira "had a clean bill of health" etc., etc. Of course, Energem "quit" the C.A.R. because Jean-Pierre Bemba marched his troops into C.A.R., where they raped and pillaged widely.[7] Energem is still operating in Congo, but Dan Gertler is the new, unofficial ambassador to the Congo for the George W. Bush gang.                                                                                            

Gertler and partners like Beny and Danny Steinmetz, Nir Livnat, Chaim Leibovitz and Yaakov Neeman run a hornet’s nest of companies involved in African hotspots, including: Dan Gertler International (DGI), Steinmetz Global Resources, International Diamond Industries, NIKANOR and Global Enterprises Corporate.

“Dan Gertler is ‘the new kid on the block,’” writes Yossi Melman in Israel’s Haaretz news. “Bold, sophisticated, brutal, he is an adventurer with a short fuse.” Haaratz confirmed that Dan Gertler owns a complex network of interconnected companies, often registered in offshore tax havens and involved in India, Russia, Belgium and the United States, and that Dan Gertler is looking to God for guidance. [8]

 


THOU SHALT NOT STEAL

“In the diamond industry,” Melman wrote, “Gertler is considered something of an odd bird. He maintains few ties with the other merchants and is not very sociable... Alongside his business affairs, most of his energy is channeled into matters of faith. He is a donor to religious institutions and from time to time makes a pilgrimage to the rabbi he most admires, Rabbi David Abuhatzeira, from Nahariya, in order to consult with him and receive his blessing. Gertler is surrounded mostly by religious people and laces his speech liberally with praise to God.” 

In 2003, Condoleeza Rice, then Assistant to President Bush for National Security Affairs, introduced Dan Gertler and Chaim Leibovitch to U.S. official Jendayi Frazer, a Harvard Kennedy School affiliate and former National Security Council agent focused on Africa. On December 6, 2006, Frazer, then Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, was one of seven special Bush delegates sent to the inauguration of Congo’s newly installed President Joseph Kabila in Kinshasa.

When Dan Gertler and Chaim Leibovitch and their friends visit the luxury Gertler villa in Lumumbashi, the capital of Katanga, Congo’s large southern province, their kosher meals arrive by private plane from Kinshasa. The special executive jet that flies their kosher meals a few hundred miles over the roadless Congo costs some $US 23,000 per trip. 

The average income for Congolese citizens each year—if they survive it—is about $95. Shootings at mining facilities and diamond mines are common, land is stolen from Congolese people, strikes are crushed by security forces that companies are partnered with, and black overseers of state terror routinely arrest and torture any vocal opposition—and sometimes disappear them—in support of white bosses. The Société Minière de Bakwange—MIBA—and the diamond fields of Mbuji-Mayi inCongo have a long history of bloodshed backed by Western powers, including Israel, from the beginning. Amnesty International points out that not a single state agent has ever been prosecuted for the extrajudicial executions of suspected “illegal” miners in Mbuji-Mayi

After a century of exploitation and slavery, we find MIBA consistently withholding payment of salaries to starving Congolese laborers and middle managers for months at a time. April and May 2007 saw strikes and protests leading to the Kabila government’s arbitrary arrest, detention and torture of trade union organizers like Leon Ngoy Bululu; police have also shot protestors. So-called ‘illegal’ diamond workers—disenfranchised local Congolese people forced into “criminal” activities to survive—were summarily executed on MIBA concessions in Mbuji-Mayi. MIBA security guards have also been sniping unemployed diamond miners.

Meanwhile, Dan Gertler’s kosher meals depart Kinshasa, the capital of the big Congo, through the arrangements of Rabbi Chlomo Bentolila, high priest of the Chabad of Central Africa. Rabbi Chlomo Bentolila has been a Kinshasa Rabbi since 1991, and he was a spiritual force who survived the terrorism of the old dinosaur, Mobutu Sese Seko, the way most elites did: by working with him. Rabbi Bentolila is a member of the Chabad Lubavitch Global Emissary Network, headquartered inBrooklyn, New York, and his wife Miriam is the sister of Rabbi Mena’hem Hadad, a high priest inBrussels. 

“Kosher does not mean that a Rabbi blesses the food,” Rabbi Betolila corrected me, “but rather that the food was supervised by a Rabbinical Thora [sic] authority who sees that the ingredients were in accordance with the laws of Kashrut expressed in the Bible (Leviticus and Deuteronomy).”  

Dan Gertler often flies people into Congo, on his private jet, for sacred Jewish rituals. For the Bar Mitsvah of Rabbi Chlomo Bentolila’s son Binyamin Avrahim in June 2005, guests included eminent Rabbis, Hassidic singer Yoni Shlomo and special orchestra Yossef Brami, all arriving in “special flights” from Israel, New York and Brussels. The reception was held at the luxurious and exclusive Memling Hotel. Joseph Kabila sent a sizeable delegation but did not attend: his closest advisers provided a blessing on his behalf. 

The Gertler, Steinmetz and Templesman interests are advanced in part through the support of the Committee of the Jewish Community of Kinshasa—le Comité de la Communauté Israélite—that is tightly coordinated with the power structure in Kinshasa to exert influence and assure control of Israeli-Belgian-Anglo-American interests over the geopolitical arena.

From June 26-30, 2007, the Communaute Israelite de Kinshasa received a visit from the Israeli Ambassador Yaakov Revah, director of the Africa Department of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Revah also flew to Lumumbashi for meetings with Dan Gertler and his agents, including Moishe (Moses) Katumbi, the Governor of Katanga, and they most likely enjoyed a lovely, $23,000 kosher meal sent from the Chabad in Kinshasa. The Communaute Israelite de Kinshasamaintains very intimate political relations with President Joseph Kabila’s PPRD party, the People's Party for Reconstruction and Democracy. On March 1, 2006, in a formal ceremony, the President of the Communaute Israelite de Kinshasa, Ashlan Piha, was awarded the Congo’s Medal of Civil Merit.  

Dan Gertler and Philippe de Moerloose were, reportedly, the only two white men who attended the wedding of Joseph Kabila and the two clearly share interests in “security” provided by OSS at MIBA and elsewhere in Congo. The April 2003 secret agreement signed between the Gertler/Steinmetz company Emaxon Finance and the Kabila government involved MIBA and two de Moerloose companies, OSS-Congo and Demimpex, and other firms.

Overseas Security Services (OSS) operations are apparently grounded in the experience of top expatriate security operatives formerly involved with the biggest security firm in Mobutu’s Zaire.According to OSS public relations materials, “these persons have a not unimportant experience in the safety of this country.”Providing mine security, body-guard and protection services, OSSoperates in Burundi, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, Dubai, South Africa, Republic of Congo (Brazzavile) and Belgium, placing them in cahoots with all sides warring and plundering eastern Congo today.

Emaxon Finance International is a real gem, one of these octopuses of mining tangled up with interlocking companies and subsidiaries based in specious geographical offshore “tax havens” that work to shield from prosecution people who are responsible for money laundering, weapons and drugs operations, assassinations and other terrorism. 

NIKANOR is registered as an Isle of Man (UK) company, an offshore tax haven that helps to conceal criminal activities and maximize profits. NIKANOR directors include Dan Kurtzer, former U.S.ambassador to Israel (2001-2005) and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Intelligence and Research under Madeleine Albright. NIKANOR partners include Mende and Moshe Gertner [sic], Israeli property tycoons with vast holdings in London who control 22 percent of NIKANOR. Another partner is Israeli-born Nir Livnat, managing director of Johannesburg-based Ascot Diamonds, a member of the Steinmetz Group of Diamond Companies, and a principal involved in numerous U.S.-based businesses from Miami to New York.


ISLAM AND JEWISH CO-EXISTENCE

The high point of Jewish life in Arab lands occurred between 900 and 1200 C.E., with the flourishing of the Islamic empire. Whenever the surrounding Muslim society did well, non-Muslims shared in the prosperity and were treated better, even allowed to participate in government and public life. When times were hard, minority religions were more oppressed and excluded. After the ninth century, political and civil disorder in what is now Iraq caused the Jewish community there to decline, with intellectuals moving west toward the more stable lands of the Mediterranean. Thus, the Jewish communities of North Africa and Moorish Spain moved into prominence. Tunisia first became a major center of religious scholarship, followed by Egypt. The Jewish community reached its zenith in Moorish Spain, with the achievements of Maimonides, the physician, scholar, and philosopher, and poets such as Hasday ibn Shaprut, Judah Halevi, Solomon ibn Gabirol, and Samuel HaNagid. This period was referred to as the "Golden Age" for its flowering of Jewish poetry and culture.

This "Golden Age" came to an end in the late twelfth century, with the capture of Islamic Spain by the Almohads, a fanatic Berber sect from Morocco, who forced Jews and Christians to convert to Islam and who drove many Jews into Christian Spain or the Middle East. There followed a long period of increasing religious rigidity in the Arab world, with growing oppression of Jews and other religious minorities. The Ottoman conquest in the sixteenth century brought some relief to Jews in Arab lands, as they were initially welcomed into civil society and their talents appreciated. The Jewish population of Palestine grew to approximately 10,000 at this time. Jews in Arab provinces lived for a time in prosperity and relative security, though this declined when central Ottoman control of these provinces weakened and Islamic conservatism grew (Stillman, 1979).

Muhammad first codified the treatment of minority religions (the "People of the Book") in Islamic territories with the institution of special taxes on unbelievers. The relevant passage in the Qur'an (IX, 29) states: "Fight against those who do not believe in God or in the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and his Prophet have forbidden or practice the true religion, among those who have been given the Book, until they pay the jizya [poll tax] from their hand, they being humbled." This passage has traditionally been interpreted to indicate that the jizya was intended as a symbolic expression of humiliation and subordination of those who rejected Muhammad (Lewis, 1984). Over the seventh and eighth centuries, the Caliphs Umar I and Umar II elaborated this idea further, and it came to be called the "Pact of Umar"


ZIONISM AND DARFUR

See main article Darfur Truth Report

Even a cursory look at the supporters of the campaign shows the prominent role of right-wing evangelical Christians and major Zionist groups to “Save Darfur.”

The Executive Committee of SAVE DARFUR

A Jerusalem Post article of April 27 headlined “U.S. Jews Leading Darfur Rally Planning” described the role of prominent Zionist organizations in organizing the April 30 rally. A full-page ad for the rally in the New York Times was signed by a number of Jewish organizations, including the UJA—Federation of NY and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.

But it wasn’t just Zionist groups that called it. The rally was sponsored by a coalition of 164 organizations that included the National Association of Evangelicals, the World Evangelical Alliance and other religious groups that have been the strongest supporters of the Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq. The Kansas-based evangelical group Sudan Sunrise helped arrange buses and speakers, did extensive fund raising and co-hosted a 600-person dinner. See full article


COMPARE TO JEWISH EXPERIENCE FOR VALIDITY

Many African people in their frustration to make the world understand our dilemma often are forced into mapping the African experience to the Jewish experience. The following argument show how Africans must constantly articulates : "I simply find the premise of 'Monster's Ball,' in which a character played by one of our most prized beauties, falls in love with a racist white prison guard who led her husband to his execution, deliberately insulting," said Miles Willis of Houston. "With its profanely incongruous and utterly implausible scenario, the plot of this film is a sneering, in-your-face taunt to all Black men. Imagine the seething indignation that a Jewish man might feel while watching a story in which the widow of a Nazi concentration camp victim has an intimate relationship with the SS officer that shoved her husband into one of those ovens at Auschwitz!"

In another example of economic ownership. "Can you imagine a Jewish community having Palestinians as experts on Jewish history".

Because of these comparisons which are constant throughout our modern history it brings into bear the validity of Africans that the issues affecting Africa cannot be stated in isolation if they are to gain empathy. Rather Africans must ride the empathy created by White Jews, who have never referenced anyone to convey their story.


   
Until the philosophy which hold one race superior And another Inferior Is finally And permanently Discredited And abandoned -Everywhere is war - Me say war. That until there no longer First class and second class citizens of any nation Until the colour of a man's skin Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes - Me say war. That until the basic human rights Are equally guaranteed to all, Without regard to race - Dis a war. That until that day The dream of lasting peace, World citizenship -Rule of international morality Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, But never attained.

CONCLUSION

All of this needs to be stated to balance the political overtones the study of Slavery is taking on. Some Jews claim that these facts are used in some antisemitic ploy but the facts speak for themselves.And yes it is true that there is a history of conspiracy against Jewish people; Hitler blamed them for this and that, Christians blamed them for killing Jesus (who was a Jew).

But this one reality cannot be used as a blanket argument to created a sacred cow phenomenon around discussing the role of Jewish people in African enslavement.  The same malicious ploy against Judaism, where it exists, today is even more present against Islam.  Muslims, Africans, Europeans, Arabs, and Christian have come to terms to some degree with their role in this period of history, as uncomfortable as it is; unfortunately the Jewish community is proving to be the last to come around to dealing with these historical truths. Worst than that is the extreme intolerance to anyone who dares to raise these topics. It is a form of academic terrorism which seems to stop at nothing to remove any possible discourse as Molefi Asante said we must defend ourselves against those that try to limit our freedom of speech while expanding theirs.. Until Slavery can be honestly examined for what it is, a terrible aspect of human history, it will always haunt our present. In addition, denying slavery is tantamount to being an accomplice to all that was horrible in that period.

Abrogation of Old Covenant laws and the entire separation that made Christianity a distinct religion from Judaism can be attributed to Paul. The notion of Jesus as a deity also comes primarily from Pauline writings.
