|30/04/04||Children of a Lesser God By Israel Shamir|
In Berlin, the high and mighty including U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, German President Johannes Rau and Israel's president, Moshe Katsav gathered for a Conference of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) dedicated to the struggle against anti-Semitism. They proclaimed that “the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is serving as a cover for worldwide anti-Semitic sentiment” as Haaretz reported today. I was not invited to this gathering, but if I were, I would present them with the following talk.
Your Excellencies, this conference is indeed an extremely important, historic event, to be compared with Constantine’s Edict of Milan or with crucial Councils of the Church. I am not sure that all of you fully understand what you did, what is the meaning of the code-words ‘Struggle against antisemitism’. Let us say first what it is NOT. ‘Struggle against antisemitism’ is not defencing of a small persecuted nation; if it would, you were to defend the besieged Palestinians. It is not struggle against racism, for you defend racist apartheid in Palestine. It is not struggle against anti-Jewish discrimination, for there is none, and from Moscow to Paris to New York Jews occupy the very pinnacle of power. It is not defence of Jewish life, for the only Jew wounded in Europe cut himself with his kitchen knife while trying to incriminate a Muslim. It is not defence of Jewish property, for Jews are the only people on earth who regained every piece of property their ancestors ever owned from Berlin to Baghdad. It has nothing to do with long-dead historic antisemitism, anti-Jewish racial theory, for there are Semites and descendents of Jews on both sides of the battle.
‘Struggle against antisemitism’ is a theological concept, related to the centuries-old question: “Are all people equal, equally important and equally close to God; or are the Jews a cut above, while the rest are children of a lesser God?” The first proposition was affirmed by St Paul, the second was the banner of Caiaphas. Today you gave your answer to the question, and, like Pontius Pilate in his time, you preferred Caiaphas. Today you proclaimed that the Judaic ideas and values are the foundation stone of the New World Order you are committed to uphold.
It does not matter that the Palestinians are being immured alive behind the 25-foot concrete wall; that the olive groves are erased and wells demolished; what is important that “Israel or its leaders should not be demonized or villainized” in words of your colleague Colin Powell. It is not a question of policy anymore, but of theology, for belief in Jewish superiority is the official faith of Pax Americana, like Christianity was that of the Roman Empire in the days of Constantine the Great. To stress the point, you forbade using Nazi symbols in conjecture with Israeli policies, but allowed superimposing Swastika of Hitler onto the Cross of Christ.
Probably you consider yourselves ‘realists and pragmatists’ who care little for this religious mumbo-jumbo. If you were realists and pragmatists, you would consider what this acceptance of Jewish superiority means for YOU, if you do not care for Palestinians or Iraqis. I open the Jerusalem Post of 22.04.04, and read the words of your new superiors:
“My problem is not only with Germany. It is with everything German, anywhere. I neither argue nor get upset. I have simply wiped Germany and its people off my globe”, – writes Matti Golan, the former editor-in-chief of the leading Israeli newspaper Haaretz and of the Globes, the paper for the Jewish economic elites. Matti Golan is not a firebrand; he is not one of Jewish religious fanatics who deny goyim even descent from Adam. Indeed, I could fill hundreds of pages with similar – and worse – quotes from Khabbad books or Cabbala wizards. But Golan is not a Cabbalist and extremist but one of the sane, non-religious mainstream influential Jewish intellectuals. When this article was discussed on IsraelForum.com in the internet, a typical Jewish response was this: “Matti Golan is a prominent journalist and columnist. He represents ideas held by the vast majority of Israeli Jews in this subject. My opinion included.” If I were a German, I would have second thoughts before providing Matti Golan’s country with nuclear-capable submarines lest he will ‘simply wipe Germany and its people off our globe’.
In my view, Golan sounded a call for racist hatred and genocide. You could discuss it; but you would rather condemn Mahathir, or a peace activist who fights for equality in Palestine. Your colleague German President Johannes Rau said: “Everyone knows that massive anti-Semitism is behind criticism of the Israeli government's politics over the last decades”. He said it a week after a four-year-old Asma suffocated of Israeli tear gas inside her room in Gaza on 23.04.04, a year after Rachel Corrie was crushed by Israeli bulldozer. Thus, whoever says ‘antisemitism’ agrees with murder of Asma and Rachel.
You cause contempt, and it is dangerous for you. In a mass-circulation Israeli daily Maariv (24.04.04), Dan Margalit, a superstar of Israeli journalism, writes of the man who tried to warn you of the grave danger of Israeli nuclear potential:
“Vanunu posed himself as suffering Mel Gibson, a new Jesus, who suffers in jail for his conversion to Christianity. I must admit he was discriminated on the religious grounds, but positively discriminated. Vanunu remained alive for his treason, spying and baptism notwithstanding, Israel treated him as a Jew. Everyone knows what the Israeli Mossad would do to him if he were a German nuclear technician on a service of an Arab state – The names of those sorts are carved on gravestones in the cemeteries of Europe.” (Do not look for this sentence on the Maariv English-language website: it is sanitised.)
Its message is clear: blood of a goy, especially of a German goy, is of less value than blood of a Jew. And you brought it upon yourselves.
You accepted your second-class status of children of lesser god. Not today – when you elevated Auschwitz and disdained the fiery holocaust of Dresden. When you bewept deportations of Jews and ignored deportations of ethnic Germans by Zionist-ridden governments of Poland and Czechoslovakia. When you pushed for disarmament of Iraq and supplied nuclear equipment to Dimona. When you locked up and extradited Palestinian fighters and did not demand extradition of an Israeli citizen Solomon Morel who tortured and killed thousands of Germans. When you tried publishers of Norman Finkelstein’s Holocaust Industry and allowed agents of ADL to march streets of Berlin with Israeli flags and portraits of Bomber Harris. You agreed that your blood is cheap. Do not be surprised if it will flow after the supply of Palestinians will dry up.
Personally, I am rather grateful for what you did. Until now, the struggle for equality in Palestine was hindered by well-meaning women and men who did not question the Jewish supremacy in Europe and the US but were horrified by the genocide of Palestinians. While fighting against the Wall, or against devastation of Gaza, they were worried by accusation of ‘antisemitism’. They thought the argument against Israeli apartheid is legitimate in the New World Order. Now you have removed this obstacle by proving that whatever happens in Palestine is not a local aberration but the foundation stone of Pax Americana.
Let them both fall together: the local and the global scheme of Judaic supremacy, so Jews and Gentiles will be able once again live like equals in Palestine and elsewhere.
