Ziontruth Has Some Words

"I don't really quite understand why Israel does this kind of thing." - Mike L.

Let's just say Zionism's work is only half done.

One half was to get the Jews out of the ghetto. Inasmuch as the Jewish nation now has a state of its own, even if a sizable portion of the nation is in the Diaspora, we can say this mission is accomplished.

The other half is to get the ghetto out of the Jews—the mentality that was necessary in stateless, defenseless life but is now a dead weight, nay, a millstone, hanging over the Jewish nation's neck. This goal has advanced quite a lot among the Israeli Jewish populace, thanks in great part to Arab aggression—give credit where it's due—but has yet to seep up to the levels of the mainstream media and the policymaking leadership.

I don't know when, but it's only a matter of time.
This is a brilliant comment.  It is brief, concise, on-point, true, and no one else is saying it.

Ziontruth rightly claims that the purpose of Zionism is/was to get the Jew out of the ghetto and the ghetto out of the Jew.

That's a perfect formulation.  That is absolutely correct.

I would say that we have done a terrific job of getting the Jew out of the ghetto, but getting the ghetto out of the Jew is an entirely different matter.

There is a deep irony here because just as anti-Jewish racists constantly complain about American Jewish power, American Jewish leadership, with a few notable exceptions, does little more than keep as quiet as little church mice.  When the Hagel nomination came up the major Jewish organizations, such as AIPAC, barely even twitched.  Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America made a stand, but he was almost alone,

I think that we are too reserved and fearful.  This is my impression as a person who cares and who has been watching the long Arab war against the Jews for a number of years now.   If Israel or the Jewish people had any major influence over the US government don't you think that Washington would have finally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by now?

I think so.

The bottom line for me - the thing that matters most - is that people must understand that the Jews of the Middle East are a people under siege.  Sure, they're cranking out life-saving technology and medicine and various computer widgets and lawyers and Natalie Portmans, but they do so while surrounded by 400 million Arabs who, for the most part, do not want them there.  The Israelis do all the amazing things that the Israelis do even as much of the Arab majority population screams for their blood.

Diaspora Jewry, on the other hand, is weak because we tend to accept the "Palestinian narrative" as the foundation of the conversation.  Jews in the diaspora could help turn around the cognitive/propaganda war against the Jews of the Middle East if we would stop using the very terms created by our enemies.


  1. Certainly that is part of it but the other part is that the "international community," demands Israel act this way. "Give give give and maybe one day we will actually agree you deserve to exist." No other state is treated this way. After over 60 years, we are still arguing about whether Israel should exist. Disgusting.

  2. "The portrait investigators have begun to piece together of the two brothers suspected of the Boston Marathon bombings suggests that they were motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs but were not acting with known terrorist groups — and that they may have learned to build bombs simply by logging onto the online English-language magazine of the affiliate of Al Qaeda in Yemen, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.

    The investigation into the bombings is still in its earliest stages, and federal authorities were still in the process of corroborating some of the admissions that law enforcement officials said were made by the surviving suspect in the attacks,Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19. But they said some of his statements suggested that the two brothers could represent the kind of emerging threat that federal authorities have long feared: angry and alienated young men, apparently self-trained and unaffiliated with any particular terrorist group, able to use the Internet to learn their lethal craft.

    Don't forget this fine young gentleman who had a similar idea three years ago, either...

  3. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Tzhokhar "Tsarnaevso, made these shocking statements on CNN tonight:

    “If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!“

    Heh...way too subtle or what?


    1. These people are taking the phrase "Allahu Akbar" which simply means that "G-d is great" and turning it into something evil.

      I very much wish that they would not.

    2. Well, to be fair they're hardly the only people who commit atrocities in the name of their lord.

      Though to ignore or excuse such statements is, of course, dangerous and stunningly stupid. And not to mention bigoted, when one treats Muslims in such a condescending manner.

  4. "The Islamic group Prophet's Ummah has repeatedly and publicly praised terrorist acts carried out abroad. Also the terrorist attack in Boston on Monday is hailed by the leader of the extreme Norwegian group. On his facebook page Ubaydullah Hussain writes, 'To hell with Boston and the U.S., and may Allah destroy America.'
    The leader of Prophet's Ummah has also posted pictures of the terrorists on their profile and calls the brothers a pair of 'real lions.'"


    Poor freaking Norway.

  5. "Elmirza Khozhugov, 26, the ex-husband of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s younger sister, Ailina, said that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been enamored of conspiracy theories, and that he was also concerned by the wars in the Middle East.

    “He was looking for connections between the wars in the Middle East and oppression of Muslim population around the globe,” Mr. Khozhugov said in an e-mail. “It was very hard to argue with him on themes somehow connected to religion. On the other hand, he did not hate Christians. He respected their faith. Never said anything bad about other religions. But he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion.”...


    "But he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion....But he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion....But he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion....But he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion."

    Sorry, had to roll that rhetoric around in my head to make sure I got it right. I'm sure the world knows better now. (facepalm)
