Brief Notes: Progressive Sadists Promoting Violence Against Jews

Mike L.

The western progressive-left has taken to promoting violence against Jews as a matter of social justice and universal human rights.

The Jews of the Middle East have been, and are, a people under siege, which is why our numbers remain so small there.  From the 7th century until early in the 20th the Jews of the Middle East were second and third class citizens under imperial Islam.  As soon as they were freed from dhimmitude, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the Arab-Muslim majority in the region launched a war against them that continues to this day.

One difference is that now the western left has joined with the Arab-Muslim majority in the Middle East in condemning Jewish self-defense as a form of aggression and thereby justifying the war of the Muslim majority against the Jewish minority.

Throughout last week Hamas shot hundreds of rockets into southern Israel making the area unlivable.  Israelis huddled in bunkers as the bombs dropped about their heads and during that entire period western progressives remained silent, as they always do, when Jews are under attack.  It was only when those Jews finally responded that suddenly outraged progressive-left voices filled the blogs and the newspapers and the streets with vituperative denunciation of alleged Israeli war crimes or disproportionate response, if not outright baby killing.

The blood-libel.

All this talk about the children -- "Oh, the children!" -- Is nothing more than a way to convey the notion that Jews are savages and, therefore, Arab-Muslim violence against us is just fine.

In this way the western progressive-left, whatever their best intentions, promotes violence against the Jewish people and, in the course of doing so, betrays whatever values they allege to hold dear.  One cannot stand for universal human rights or for social justice if one doesn't care about the oppression of women, Gay people, non-Muslims, and Jews throughout the Middle East.  One cannot stand for universal human rights or for social justice if one thinks that Jewish self-defense from the Arab-Muslim majority is a form of aggression that cannot be tolerated.

The left is dead.

It no longer stands for anything and Israel should entirely disregard the sadistic shrieks of hatred against them.


  1. Fuck the left. It supports terrorist Hamas and their drive to kill the Jews. Something went wrong in its Frankenstein brain wiring and now it's simply a brainless, soulless monster running amok.

    Fuck the left.

    1. Noam Chomsky, Jeff Rense and Daily Kos. Perfect together...

    2. "Fuck the left" msy miss the point.

      Noam Chomksy = far left, Jeff Rense = far right, and Daily Kos - partisan Democratic "centrist' hackery. What we're seeing is a phenomenon that crosses all ideological boundaries.

    3. That diary's pretty much got it all too, btw, doesn't it Randall?

      Claims of 'war crimes' and spreading of blood libel-type shit once Israel shoots back? Check.

      Astounding ignorance? Check.

      Blatant antisemitism? Check.

      Fringe radicals converging from the right and the left? Check.

      "Anti-Capitalist Meetup [Jay's note: lololol]?" Check.

      Btw, that 'group' also posts occasional pro-BDS diaries. So 'check' on that, too.

      Self-proclaimed 'feminists' who constantly demonize Israel while completely ignoring the murderous misogyny which runs rampant in all of her neighbors? Check.

      Liberal Jews desperately seeking acceptance amongst 'progressives' by making clear that they aren't like "those other Jews over there!"? Check.

      These people are a walking fucking parody.

    4. "by making clear that they aren't like "those other Jews over there!"?"

      THIS! What a sad bunch of Jew traitors they are. Another JINO, Ramara has a diary up telling how he/she went over to the dark terrorist side.

    5. Sad, I liked her. She was always a decent person, but definitely always quite ignorant and naive on I-P.

      Oh, well. Lie down with dogs, etc etc...

      This is simply dumbfounding -

      "And Israel has been attacking the government buildings in Gaza, including police, essentially destroying any sort of organization for the public good in Gaza."

      I'm honestly laughing out loud here. The astounding stupidity is literally leaving me speechless.

    6. I propose Israel send commandos into Gaza City and elsewhere, deep undercover, sneak up on Hamas officials while they're in the restroom, and yell "BOO!" at them while they're taking a leak.

      (something tells me a good number of 'progressives' would call that a war crime too, though...)

    7. Also, hijack their airwaves and loop Pauly Shore films.

  2. Daily Kos comment of the day. Countin' Jews -

    Great article, NYB, and under a short deadline,too.

    I don't know about you, but this seems de ja vu all over again. Isn't this exactly what happened about 4 years ago? And the media was just as bad.

    What do these 7 people have in common?

    Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner

    Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company

    Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd

    Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company Ltd and head of Universal Studios

    Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc

    Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric

    Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation Limited

    Well they are all white, male, extremely rich, Jewish, and, oh yeah, they own the corporate media outlets in the US.

    Not really mysterious how the media gets to be skewed in one direction. And I am not just talking pro-Israel. Remember, they are also white, male and the 1%. They are unlikely to see or report the world as most of us would see it. That is the main problem with media consolidation. You only get one point of view.

    De air is de air. What can be done?

    While we're on counting things, I see at least nine antisemites and counting...

    1. One more rec, but finally an HR. dhonig is one of the last remaining sensible people at that festering shitpile.

      Also, get a load of the diarist's response to this clear-cut antisemitism -

      Not all Jews are Zionists, I am an anti-zionist (16+ / 0-)
      and I am a Jew.

      He continues on to say that the original comment may possibly be borderline antisemitic (gee, ya think?!), but it's telling that his initial defense is "hey, I ain't no ZIonist!!1!". This is, of course, after he wrote a diary about war crimes and targeting civilians and etc etc etc, eye roll ad infinitum...

    2. Oh shit, I missed the link too. There's a link in that original to Jeff fucking Rense!

      Maybe the Daily Kos as Stormfront thing isn't really that hyperbolic after all...

    3. Figures Dian Gee would rec a link to right wing Jew hating Rense.

    4. Yeah. And some news for her and her imaginary friend... I mean, her 'lawyer' who doesn't know the difference between slander and libel - truth is a defense in such instances. If one doesn't wish to be called an antisemite, then one shouldn't be an antisemite, leaving piles of evidence everywhere they go, every day.

      It really is that simple.

    5. And wasn't that predictable. Instead of getting pissed at the antisemite, the diarist (who's totally showing all his buddies that he isn't anything like those other Jews over there!) is pissed at... those calling out the antisemite.

      Well, I've now had my fill of that bubbling cauldron of bigotry for the moment. Still 'good' to know nothing's changed there, though.

  3. There is a real real fundamental problem with the left and Jews that has been neglected far too long.

    Jews have always been in the radical left and the radical left has always been indifferent or hostile to any form of Jewishness and most especially Zionism. One of the many reasons why the radical left deserves it place in the dustbin.

    Assholes and psychopaths. Most utopians are. It's appalling that nothing has changed.

    It's worse than ever.

    Fuck the left. They are the problem. Who cares whether or not they are Jews. That's irrelevant isn't it?

    It is for me. That's for sure.


  4. A great article by Melanie Philips

  5. Last year, someone at Daily Kos posted a link to Daphne Anson's (great!) blog. Even though they subsequently apologized, they were ultimately banned by Markos himself for committing that horrible thought crime, and everyone who uprated the comment was 'NRed,' some for weeks.

    I would have been amongst them, but I was already long since 'NR'ed' by that point (and I'd proudly note, I was also the very first 'Permanent NR!').

    As of this moment, ten people have uprated a blatantly antisemitic comment (and not to mention the one who posted the comment) containing a link to a far right racist conspiracy theory site that regularly hosts Holocaust denial, AIDS denialists, 'exposes' on government earthquake machines, and such other similar crap.

    Let's see how they're treated in response. This should be interesting.

  6. Too much emphasis on the Leftist rather than Jewish identity, so when the former attacks the latter, there is an active participation to blame Israel, or plain indifference.

  7. The world's most popular Muslim preacher Yusuf al-Qaradawi ("spiritual leader" of the Muslim Brotherhood), asks Allah to destroy the Jews, Al Azhar Mosque, Cairo, November 16, 2012


    Yusuf al-Qaradawi in 2009, on Al-Jazeera TV

    Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers….

    I’d like to say that the only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life with martyrdom.

    From Wikipedia:

    "Al-Qaradawi has three sons and four daughters, three of whom hold doctorates from British Universities. His daughter, Ilham Yousef Al-Qaradawi, is an internationally recognized nuclear scientist. While his son, Abdurrahman Yusuf al-Qaradawi, is a poet and a political activist in Egypt.

    "In 2008, in an online poll, Yusuf al-Qaradawi was voted the 3rd most intellectual person in the world on the list of Top 100 Public Intellectuals by Prospect Magazine (UK) and Foreign Policy (United States).

    "He is a trustee of the Oxford University Center for Islamic Studies and has been named as the technical consultant for a multi-million dollar English-language film about Prophet Muhammed produced by Barrie Osborne. A 2008 Foreign Policy online poll put him at No.3 in the list of the Top 20 Public Intellectuals worldwide."

    Hat tip to Jihad Watch ( and The Elder of Ziyon (


    Huma Abedin -- she's the daughter of two Islamists deeply involved with the Muslim Brotherhood; she was raised and schooled in Saudi Arabia; she was a board member of the Muslim Students Association -- a Muslim Brotherhood front organization; she was the assistant editor of a Muslim Brotherhood journal; "she's an immensely wealthy woman, in the really upper-class of American stage"; she's the personal advisor to secretary of state, Hillary Clinton

    Tarek Fatah (Pakistani-Canadian, truly "moderate" Muslim (non-orthodox Muslim (non-Shariah-proponent Muslim)) did background research on, and tells facts he discovered about, Huma Abedin:


    Is anyone going to start to listen to me about why what's happening is happening (why the Left is doing what it's doing, and why the West, in general, is doing what it's doing) and what needs to be done? Is anyone going to start to listen to me about the facts that need to be communicated?
