ALEF Watch

ALEF Watch is devoted to documenting the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic forum "ALEF," supposedly short for "Academic Left," which operates under the auspices of the University of Haifa and using the University of Haifa computer.   It is managed and controlled by Prof. Avraham Oz, a radical associate professor of theater at the University of Haifa.  Oz has been described as the Ward Churchill of Israel, due to his denunciation of Israeli soldiers as "Little Eichmanns," repeating the phrase coined by Ward Churchill (dismissed from the University of Colorado) to refer to the victims of the 911 attacks on the US.  A close crony of Ilan Pappe, Oz regularly organizes "Nakba Days" to mourn Israel's existence and denounced his own university for supposed anti-Arab racism.  Oz was denounced for his misuse of the classroom for anti-Israel propagandizing by a former Israeli Minister of Education.

While supposedly a forum for leftist professors in Israel, ALEF is by and large a forum for assorted anti-Semites, jihad supporters, and outright Neo-Nazis from all over the world.  It is used not only to proliferate anti-Israel hate propaganda, but also openly anti-Semitic materials.  Pro-Israelis are often not permitted to post on ALEF and are quickly banned by Oz when they do.   Is this the University of Haifa's idea of freedom of expression? 

IsraCampus.Org.il is posting selected citations from materials disseminated via the ALEF forum as a public service.

[alef] Fwd: I Need Hebrew Word for Apartheid

Dear Ed,

I regard the quest for "a Hebrew word for Apartheid" to be wholly misguided.

the State of Israel is a settler-colonial, state rooted in the crime-against-humanity of the 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

The Israeli Palestinian conflict is at core a conflict between a settler-colonial state and the indigenous people of the country of Palestine, the Palestinian-Arab people

The designation of the State of Israel as an apartheid state at core is wholly correct. The absence, to a degree, of "petty apartheid" in Israel serves to veil the reality of core Israeli apartheid (93 per cent of the territory of so-called "Israel proper" is reserved in law for "Jews" only.)

I stand to be corrected, but as far as I am aware, after the dismantlement of apartheid in the Republic of South Africa, Israel remains the only member state of the UN that is an apartheid state - and as such ought to be singled-out for international boycott, divestment and sanctions.

One of the foremost achievements of the struggle over the ANC led democratic forces of South Africa is the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid of 1973, and its entering into force in 1976.

It so happens that there is no International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Hafradah. We do not have to start from scratch and ought to build upon the international achievements of our South African democratic brothers and sisters. I believe that if I am granted an additional span of twenty years on the surface of Planet Earth I will live to see the application of the said Convention also in the case of apartheid Israel.

Attempts to introduce into the narrative a separate Hebrew term for Israeli apartheid serves to delay the suppression and punishment of the crime of Israeli apartheid and of apartheid criminal Israeli civilian and security leaders.

I regard such attempts to be, inadvertently or otherwise, complicit with the pathetic efforts of political-Zionist apologists at deflecting the application of the said Convention in the case of apartheid Israel.

Best
Uri

אוניברסיטת חיפה - נועה שינדלינגר, פעילת השמאל הקיצונית ותורמת קבועה ל'רשימת אלף', תעמוד על הצורך להשמיד את ישראל במסגרת שבוע האפרטהייד

'רשימת אלף', המתקיימת בשרתים של אוניברסיטת חיפה, היא הפורום שבו רדיקלים קיצוניים מביעים גם דיעות אנטי-ישראליים ואנטישמיים. שינדלינגר תרצה על הפעילות שלה במסגרת ארגון 'זוכרות', הפועל לקידום 'הנכבה', והחוויותיה בהפגנות של הארגון 'אנרכיסטים נגד הגדר' נגד גדר ההפרדה וגניבת קרקעות.

[ב-7 במרץ] תרצה באוניברסיטת יורק פעילות השמאל הקיצוני, נועה שינדלינגר, החברה בארגון "זוכרות", הפועל ליישום תביעת השיבה של מיליוני הפליטים הפלסטינים וצאצאיהם בישראל.

שינדלינגר, שהייתה גם פעילה בארגון אנרכיסטים נגד הגדר, תדבר על האקטיביזם בישראל נגד הכיבוש והאפרטהייד והאסטרטגיה לבניית סולידריות ומאבק משותף עם הפלסטינים.
...
שבוע האפרטהייד הישראלי זוכה לתמיכה של ארגונים פלסטיניים וערביים בקנדה, לצד ארגוני שמאל רדיקליים ובהם יהודיים, דוגמת קולות יהודיים עצמאיים, לא בשמנו יהודים המתנגדים לציונות.

נועה שינדלינגר מזוהה עם ארגוני שמאל קיצוניים בישראל. במאמרים שפרסמה באתר "מיי סיי" הציגה שינדלינגר את תפיסת עולמה הרדיקלית, שאינה רואה בישראל ישות לגיטימית בהיותה "מדינה קולוניאלית... שמעולם לא הייתה דמוקרטית, אבל הצליחה במשך עשורים ארוכים להעמיד פנים ככזאת".

שינדלינגר תומכת בהקמת מדינה אחת בכל שטח פלסטין ("דמוקרטיה לכולם מהירדן ועד הים"), בשחרור האסירים הפלסטינים (הווה אומר: האסירים הביטחוניים שהיו מעורבים בפעולות טרור), בשיבת הפליטים הפלסטינים לשטח ישראל, בקיומו של מאבק משותף עם הפלסטינים, ביצירה של חיים משותפים, וערעור של קטגוריות אוטומטיות של "אנחנו" מול "הם" ומשחק סכום אפס.

"הבעיה היא מהותית ומבנית - מדינת ישראל כמדינה ציונית, כלומר קולוניאליסטית, שמנהלת משטר אפרטהייד מובהק שלא התחיל ב-1967 אלא ב-1948 באמצעות ריבוי של מנגנוני דיכוי שמזינים זה את זה", כתבה שינדלינגר באחד ממאמריה.

שינדלינגר, שסירבה להתגייס לצה"ל, מתנגדת לפתרון שתי המדינות, בטענה שהוא ייצור "הפרדה גזעית", לציונות, לדגל ישראל, אותו היא מוצאת "פוגעני" ולהמנון הלאומי ה"חוגג את הגזענות".
...
בראייה לעתיד, היא כותבת, "אין לי ספק שהתרחבותו של המאבק המשותף, שבמהלכו פלסטינים וישראלים-יהודים יעמדו כתף אל כתף מול כוחות הכיבוש, היא הדרך היחידה ליצירתה של חברה חדשה פוסט קולוניאלית לאחר השחרור".

Anti-Semite Edward Corrigan (edcorrigan@edcorrigan.ca who claims the Jews were behind the 9-11 attacks on the US) uses ALEF list to call for a campaign to fire Prof. Alan Dershowitz. Posted on ALEF on 07  February 2013

 Here is a campaign that is worth supporting.

Brooklyn College stood up to their bullying tactics. The New York Times also criticized the campaign to attack a Boycott and Divestment and Sanctions meeting at the College. Many other organizations also criticized the attempt to limit academic freedom at Brooklyn College. At least 1,541 Jews have endorsed this Jewish Voice for Peace petition to fire Dershowitz and Hikind from their self appointed positions as the ``Official Spokesmen for The Jewish People and Gatekeepers of Academic Freedom."

University of Haifa - Tony Greenstein - ALEF Ultra-blogger - Background Check into Sadam Hussein Connection

While an activist in the student movement, Greenstein became prominent [2] in an organisation known as the British Anti-Zionist Organisation – Palestine Solidarity (BAZO). BAZO had been formed in 1975 [3] and in its early years it was simply known as BAZO or the British Anti-Zionist Organisation.[4] The appendage "Palestine Solidarity" was added much later.[5] The organisation became more well known in Britain in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

BAZO was particularly active in the UK student movement, and it was denounced by many left wing organisations as antisemitic.[6] One of the of left wing organisations that condemned BAZO for antisemitism was, as Greenstein admitted himself,[7] the Trotskyist Workers' Revolutionary Party. Given the antics of this party, which was later exposed as to include spying on prominent British Jews for Libya,[8] it says something that they accused BAZO of antisemitism. Greenstein was one of BAZO's top people having been on its Secretariat[9] and he distributed BAZO material at National Union of Students (NUS) conferences.[10]

What is of particular interest about BAZO is the funding from and control by Iraqi Ba'ath party that Greenstein admits. The Iraqi Ba'ath party were, in Greenstein's own choice of word, the "piper" calling the BAZO tune.[20]

Aaronovitch declared: "the slander campaign against me was almost certainly the work of Iraqi officials interested in the question of [NUS's] de-recognition of NUIS."[27] The Guardian also implied that it was supporters of the Iraqi regime behind the forged letter.[28] The distributors of the libel were BAZO. Greenstein admits BAZO were controlled by Ba'ath funders. He has stated that when he had enough proof to be aware of this, he resigned.[29] This subsequent resignation does not alter the fact that – by being a leading light in BAZO and a distributor of their material – Tony Greenstein was carrying out activities that Saddam Hussein's men would have approved.

It is time for Greenstein to come clean: to set the record straight and provide a full and detailed explanation about his involvement in BAZO, and the organisation's funding and control by the Iraqi Ba'ath party.

Tony Greenstein (tonygreenstein@yahoo.com), Communist anti-Semite and Convicted Shoplifter, discovers the roots of Jews leaving Arab countries for Israel on ALEF on 10 October 2012

It is with sadness that I learnt today of the death of Marion Woolfson, a courageous Jewish opponent of Zionism whose seminal book, Prophets in Babyon - Jews in the Arab World debunked the Zionist myth that the Arabs had expelled, out of anti-Semitic motives, the Jews who had lived for centuries in the Arab countries.

She showed conclusively that it was the advent of British and French colonialism and in particular the Nakba, combined with the Zionists planting bombs outside Jewish synagogues and cafes in Baghdad that caused the exodus of the world's oldest Jewish community.

Either way it is long overdue. What pundits and commentators don't mention is that Shamir was one of 3 leaders of the Stern Gang who proposed in 1941 an alliance with Nazi Germany!

The Zionists make much of the fact that the British and Zionist appointed Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj al-Amin Husseini was pro-Nazi, whilst omitting to mention that many independence leaders for example.

University of Haifa –ALEF chat list gets plugged as being a source of vicious anti-Israel attacks

The tone of their attacks can’t be rivalled outside Israel for viciousness. Under the auspices of the University of Haifa, for example, anti-Semitic discourse is distributed by ALEF, an anti-Israel chat forum. It includes endorsements of terrorism, calls for the extermination of Israel and even support for Holocaust deniers.

One of Israel’s misfortunes was the premature birth of an intellectual class. Uniquely amongst the nations, Israel had its own university — Hebrew University — 20 years before statehood. Many of the European intellectuals who formed its professoriat were already infected with anti-Zionism through their discipleship to philosopher Martin Buber, who spun utopian fantasies of a binational state with Arabs and Jews united in civic harmony.

Most encouraging was the development of a pro-Zionist youth group called Im Tirtzu — “If you will it” — referring to Zionist movement founder Theodore Herzl’s famous dictum, “If you will it, it is no dream.” Im Tirtzu is a vigorous presence today on most Israeli campuses, successfully documenting and disseminating such indecencies as leftist students at a BGU campus rally giving Heil Hitler salutes to pro-Zionist students.

Mark Marshall (markmarshall0691@gmail.com) detaches the gruesome murder of women and children from the suicide bomber terrorist through rationality, posted on ALEF on 27 February 2012

[alef] explanation for our hatred...

... of suicide bombers, despite the obvious fact that suicide bombing is at least as moral as non-suicide bombing. A member of another list I subscribe to, a teacher in Canada whose name I'll omit, wrote the following yesterday. He mentions two reasons, of which the second is far more important:

"I have never understood the argument that suicide bombing is somehow more abhorrent than murder by bombing when the perpetrator chooses to live. They are both acts of violence, willful, premeditated violence. In one the killer sentences someone else to death but saves himself while in the other s/he chooses to perish with the targets. I suspect that two reasons account for the distaste people feel about suicide bombing. First we treasure lives, at least our own and unless we are mentally unsound we avoid suicide (although in battle we may act in defense of fellow soldiers, knowing the we may almost, and I emphasize the almost, certain that we may die in the act). The second is that suicide attack is the province of the powerless and the attacker cannot be deterred. If you are powerful and well armed, you do not need such a draconian form of attack, but you must fear the suicide bomber precisely because he cannot be deterred. Could it be that this second reason explains why suicide bombers are excoriated in the press?"

Here is an interesting item on the recent article published in the Atlanta Jewish Times where its owner-publisher wrote a column suggesting that Israel might someday need to "order a hit" on the president of the United States." The author also addressed other Israeli actions taken against Americans and one American-Canadian (Gerard Bull).

Weir actually left out several other possible Israeli threats against Americans. John Guenther Dean, the American Ambassador to Lebanon, reports that the Mossad tried to kill him in Lebanon. Dean, when he was the American Ambassador to India, also reports that he believed that the Mossad was involved with the crash of Pakistani Dictators General Mohammad Zia's plane also killing the American ambassador in Pakistan, Arnold Raphel. Also killed were several other Pakistani Generals who were traveling with the Pakistani dictator....

It means that if a Canadian does not support Zionist ideology which justifies an "ancestral" homeland for Jews (even though anyone can be Jewish regardless of their ancestry), they can be prosecuted under Canadian law. Sort of like one being prosecuted n the United States for not supporting South African apartheid.

The end of the article concludes with the usual "lesson": that the Holocaust should teach the world. I would assume it would have been a positve lesson, which I have yet to see. Perhaps it should read what "Nazi crimes" should have taught the world since there were many victims of Nazi crimes.

So, what is the "lesson"?

To use the Holocaust for political reasons that do not relate at all to anything humane, with the Palestinians being the victims from generation to generation.

At first sight a Conference on the Suppression of Palestinian voices in Freiburg, Germany on September 11th seems nothing out of the ordinary but on closer inspection it would appear that the silencing of Palestinians by Zionism is being equated with the rendering illegal of Holocaust Denial inside Germany.

Except neo-Nazis are not oppressed. Palestinians are. And holocaust denial is equivalent to nakba denial so why is a 'Palestine' conference supporting the former?

The University of Haifa's Rabid Israel Hater Micah Leshem (Dept of Psychology) finds who is at fault, on the anti-Semitic "ALEF" Chat List

Over 40 years, we have successfully, willingly, deviously and surreptitiously, bound ourselves to a policy of colonial expansion. Israel will extend from the Mediterranean in the west, to the Jordan River Rift Valley in the east. For N(etanyahu), there never was any intention to negotiate peace, his vision is clearer than of all his predecessors. He has produced a plethora of preconditions designed put off, shackle, and humiliate any negotiating partner. They ranged from the unconscionable during negotiations (accelerated settlement expansion, Palestinian home demolitions, expulsions, and discriminatory and restrictive laws and regulations) to the ludicrous not merely to recognize Israel (which they have) (sic), but to do so as a State for Jews. In addition, N(etanyahu) has stated to an enthusiastic US congress that Jerusalem is not negotiable, neither the majority of settlements, neither the Jordan Valley, and the Palestinian State will not armed. Thus the starting point for negotiations is for a Palestinian state of 4 reservations communicating by corridors and surrounded by Israel controlling all access. These preconditions torpedo negotiations, and other are freely added, the latest being that negotiation is not possible with the Palestinians because they include the Hamas because it does not recognize Israel. If Hamas were as formidable as Hezbollah, Israel would negotiate, as it did with Hezbollah, and with the Palestinian Fatah before that.

A new precondition N(etanyahu) seems to be nurturing is the release of Hamas' Israeli soldier prisoner, Shalit. Again the double-speak - N(etanyahu) actually opposes the deal on offer. Patently, Hamas leadership cannot compromise on the conditions they set. They know that the moment he is freed they will all be killed by Israeli drones, like their leader Sheikh Yassin, blown up in his wheelchair with a score of other casualties by a guided missile, some years after a deal for his release from Israeli prison. As long as they have Shalit, Israel is "hooped" not to kill them. That stalemate has lasted for 5 years, suits both sides, and will persist until we discover his whereabouts and mount a rescue operation.

[alef] Getting the Holocaust into Perspective (was Audacity without bounds (falasteensadiqa))
From: tony greenstein <tonygreenstein@yahoo.com>

To: alef@list.haifa.ac.il

And the logical corollary of this is that because the Zionists use the holocaust in order to justify their barbarities, people then draw the 'logical' conclusion, viz. that there was no holocaust. Because if you were seriously concerned about what happened to Jews under the Nazis you wouldn't defend the Nakba and all that has come after.

The reality is that the Zionists actively and consciously help create the very phenomenon of holocaust denial that they purport to oppose.

It is precisely because of the horrors of the holocaust that we should be vigilant to prevent the abuse and misuse of the holocaust to justify the genocidal murder and expulsion of the Palestinians and their status under Zionist Apartheid.

The disgusting role of Yad Vashem and similar institutions makes a mockery of their claims to remember the dead.

Marwan Bishara

Israel's resolute occupation of Palestinians in not just historic Palestine, but in the West Bank and Gaza Strip specifically, can be considered the oldest quasi-dictatorship in the Middle East, Bishara argues [GALLO/GETTY]

As the conventional wisdom goes – especially in the West – Israel is the "only democracy" in the Middle East. And that is so, particularly for its Jewish citizens. However Israel has been anything but democratic for the indigenous people of the land, the Palestinian Arabs.

[alef] Who killed Vittorio?

Perhaps the murderers of Vittorio are depicted in this video, or in another video. Israel's undercover units are no secret (only the individuals' identities), and I think Israel is rather proud of them. I do not believe that any Palestinian was involved in his murder. Only Israel has something to gain from these extraordinary human beings not being present to bear witness, who have always given unselfishingly of themselves like Rachel Corrie.

Re: [alef] a murder_a new colony_Alistair Cooke on Permanet Temporariness

As Dorothy says, we do not know who carried out the attack in Itamar. But if it turns out that a Palestinian did it, whoever is unsure about how to respond to the attack should ask him/herself how he/she would react if this incident involved not Israel and Palestine, but two other countries. Imagine if - just by way of example - Haiti occupied the Dominican Republic and colonized it with Haitian citizens, and one day 43 years after the Haitian invasion of the Dominican Republic a Dominican entered the home of a Haitian family in a Haitian settlement in the Dominican Republic and killed a family of five - a man and a woman and three of their children, including a baby. How should decent, principled people respond to that? The answer to that question provides us with the correct response to the attack in Itamar.

This is why I feel so adamant about Holocaust remembrance not being observed. How on earth can anyone observe such a thing while supporting Israel as a racist state and what it does to the Palestinians? Just a few weeks ago, there was an article in Ha'aretz. I cannot even find a word suitable that describes the disgust I felt when I read it. It was regarding a top U.S. Rabbi who condemned Hamas for attempting to ban a trip to the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington to a group of Palestinian students I believe from Gaza.

Before Israel attacked Gaza in December 2008 the Military Rabbinate under its Chief Military Rabbi Rontski distributed a pamphlet to soldiers encouraging them to be cruel. It compared the Palestinians to the Philistines. I don't claim to be an expert in Biblical history but as far as I'm aware, the Philistines and Amalekites were pretty much considered the same and for whom the same fate awaited.

[alef] On the academic boycott (again)

When we consider the campaign against the Israeli occupation and oppression of Palestinians, a careful choice of targets must guide action. While Israeli Jews are not the only ones who violate human rights, as the stronger side they are the chief culprits today. Their greatest source of vulnerability is the obsessive need to feel an integral part of the West and the global community. This feeling is particularly strong among the elites, including academics. It is central to their professional identity and it contributes to a sense of political complacency. With their eyes firmly turned to the West, they have become blind to Palestinians living under conditions of military occupation and suffering from massive violation of human rights. This is the challenge, then: how to use the quest for normality and legitimacy in order to force ordinary people to move against extraordinary circumstances?

The academic boycott may become a successful strategy of political mobilization against Israeli oppressive practices to the extent that it manages to highlight what is wrong with the current situation and put pressure on elite sectors in Israeli society to oppose their government's policies. In this vein, the petition that Desmond Tutu signed did not call for a total boycott but specifically for suspending relations with BGU until it took a stand against the occupation, in the same way that South African universities were expected to – and many did – issue statements against apartheid.

Re: [alef] Partition & Self Deception

International pressure did indeed restrain Hitler but the problem was that the Zionist movement did their best to remove that pressure in order that they could cook up their deals with the Nazis. The most infamous of these was the Ha'avara transfer agreement, an economic agreement between Nazi Germany and the Zionist Organisation, which enabled the richer of Germany's Jews to take out their wealth via the purchase from frozen bank accounts in Germany of German industrial exports (& also other things). What Ha'avara did though was to smash up the international boycott of Nazi Germany (yes boycott movements have always been anti-fascist and anti-racist). The Nazis could and did point to the contrast between Jews who were spearheading the Boycott movement and Jews seeking to trade with Nazi Germany with the message that if the Jews could do trade why should anyone else be deterred. That the Nazis were very worried about the Boycott movement is evidenced by the fact that almost as soon as they got to power Goring summoned the leaders of the German Jewish community to instruct them to go abroad to combat the boycott calls. The ZIonists were eager to go, going out of their way to secure an invitation to the meeting with Goring in March 1933.

On the same day Greenstein added:

[alef] Partition & Self Deception

And again I agree with Peter that in Israel, the Nazi mentality is there for a very large section of the population, especially the Orthodox and their interpretation of the Torah as permitting if not demanding the eradication of every Arab who stands in their way, children included. All that prevents large scale massacres is political pressure and every once in a while this pent up fury expresses itself in the massacre in Gaza of January 2009, the Lebanese invasions and indeed the treatment of the Mavi Marmara and the absolute rage engendered. Have a look at the demonstration outside the Turkish Embassy in Tel Aviv for an example of this.

And it is precisely because Israel uses the Nazi analogy, that we should turn it on them. Not as tit for tat but because, ironically, those who compare themselves with Hitler's victims and accuse their own victims of being Nazis are guilty of turning the world upside down. It is noticeable that, and people can find it on my blog www.azvsas.blogspot.com that we have a retired Israeli judge saying we should learn from the Nazis and ordinary Israelis telling leftist Jews to 'go back to Auschwitz' etc.

Quite right, Mark. Hizbullah is perfectly within its rights to bomb Haifa, with its naval and other military bases located in the midst of the civilian population (my parents are legitimate targets as they live a few hundred meters from Bat Galim). Hamas is peferectly justified in bombing Tel Aviv, where Israel's military headquarters are located in the midst of its civilian population, and so on. However, they would still need to warn civilians beforehand, and since phoning individuals is impractical, how about if they issued a blanket statement on al-manar TV: flee before we start shooting in 5 minutes?

Tony Greenstein (tonygreenstein@yahoo.com), British Communist and Anti-Semite, posted this "report" on his trip to Auschwitz on ALEF on 16 August 2010

To: Alef
Date: Monday August 16, 2010

(excerpt)
It was in short an error-strewn explanation acceptable to all who have a vested interest in Auschwitz as the justification for Israel's oppression today. Poland, being a good friend of Israel, conducts the tours accordingly. Instead of the solemnity of Sachsenhausen there is the tourist fanfare of Auschwitz. In short Auschwitz-Birkenau is a money spinner for the Polish state and in return loads of Israeli Jewish high-school students visit in order to learn one of the foundational lessons of why Israel came into being. Auschwitz, whose bombing the Zionists failed to campaign around at the time (Ben-Gurion opposing idea altogether) and to whom nearly half a million Hungarian Jews were deported in the spring of 1944 after the Zionists had done a deal to save the elite of Hungarian Jewry, is now used to justify further racism and murder, whilst the remaining survivors of the holocaust live in poverty in Israel and America as Zionist organisations have siphoned off the funds.

It goes without saying that to see the heap of prosthetic limbs and the mounds of clothing, to say nothing of the victims, especially the child victims of Auschwitz, is heart-rending. It is unfortunate that Auschwitz, the symbol of fascist barbarity, the deliberate and industrial extermination of millions of people, has been harnessed to justify the cruelties of Zionism. Just as the goal of Nazism was to make Germany Jew-free, so today Zionism's goal is the Judification of the Negev and Galilee.

Perhaps this brought out best when I asked, in both the Auschwitz and the Birkenau bookshops whether there was anything written by Rudolph Vrba, who together with Alfred Wetzler, were the second and third Jewish escapees who had broken out of Auschwitz on April 9th 1944 and reached Slovakia 15 days later. Their Auschwitz Protocols described the camp and its purpose in detail yet in Hungary itself the Zionist leadership sat on it. When eventually they were publicised thanks to Swiss newspapers and then a BBC broadcast, the deportations halted and and estimated 200,000 Hungarian Jews were saved.

Maybe I had expected something more from the visit, possibly the quiet horror which is all that remains of Sachsenhausen, instead Auschwitz has become a tourist destination.

Ephraim Nimni claims Ahmadinejad is not an anti-Semite on ALEF on 12 May 2009

Re: Standing up against antisemitism, " (Ephraim Nimni)
Are these the deeds of an Anti-Semite?

Brian Klug is wrong, and this is not to say that Ahmadinejad is right. Ahmadinejad is a religious fundamentalist like the friend he is kissing. I dislike Ahmadinejad's world view as much as I dislike the world view of his mate in the photo. Their views are Manichean, like the views of all fundamentalists: there is one source of absolute truth and one source of absolute evil. I personally find this Manichean dichotomy absurd, and moreover, there is a great dose of conspiratorial third worldism in Ahmadinejad arguments and a manifest inability to understand the West and its sensitivities. All of this undermines his political campaign

But to accuse Ahmadinejad of anti-Semitism is to fall into the inverted mirror image of Ahmadinejad third worldism, a deep Eurocentrism that only knows to judge the world in terms of European categories and remains blissfully ignorant of non European circumstances, logics or categories of thought. In this regard, Brian Klug appears to exhibit the Orientalist thinking so eloquently denounced by Edward Said. Apart from ignoring that the largest Jewish community in the Middle East outside Israel lives voluntarily under Ahmadinejad's sovereignty, Klug appears to ignore that Ahmadinejad's extreme language is addressed to Israel and not to Jews. His Holocaust conference was an act of crass ignorance, not anti-Semitism. He falls neatly into the category that Joseph Massad calls Zionist Muslims, and he is an embarrassment to those who support the Palestinian cause. These "Zionist Muslims" deny the Holocaust because they subscribe to the Zionist logic that the Holocaust is the justification for Israel, so they believe that if they deny the Holocaust they will be denying Israel. This is a statement of crass ignorant Third Worldism (sic) but not of (western) Anti-Semitism. Instead of fighting Zionism, Ahmadinejad and his mates end up justifying a Zionist claim. And Brian Klug, in spite of his early perceptive differentiations between criticisms of Israel and anti-Semitism, joins the ranks of the Orientalists and those who use accusations of anti-Semitism to deflect criticisms of Israel.

Another point is that antisemitism directed against diaspora Jews is just fine with the state of Israel for various reasons. Among them:

1) Jew hatred justifies Israel's existence as a refuge for Jews out there, who through it might get over their apostasy and go up where they should be, instead of wallowing down there among the goyim. Zionism has always appreciated Jew haters and worked with them, from Plehve through Hitler to the Argentine military dictatorship.
2) Israel in fact does despise the diaspora Jews, so they deserve to be hated and persecuted until they see the light.
3) If Jewish communities can actually be driven out of other countries, they might arrive in Israel in large numbers and be used in the demographic war, as well as supplying Israeli industry with cheap labor and the IDF with fresh meat, as has happened before.

Given these, Israel’s indignation and anger seem out of place....

Also on another account the indignation seems out of place. Israel is extraordinarily sensitive to Holocaust symbols, even though some of its own are similar in kind. For instance, at the entrance to Bethlehem, now a ghetto surrounded by a wall, there is hanging on that ghetto wall, next to a lookout tower that could serve as well for a sniper’s post, a sign from the top of the wall to the bottom (8 meters, i.e., 25 feet) reads: “Peace be with you” and is signed by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.

Both had the identical sign: “Arbeit macht frei,” a saying that can be quite reasonable if (as a German friend pointed out), you are trying to find something positive to suggest to a person who is despondent, but chilling and brutal in a slave-labor and death camp.

So also the sign at the entrance to Bethlehem—quite pleasant sentiment, and appropriate to the city where Jesus was born, but not on the wall of a ghetto. Today not even the Magi could get to the manger. Not only the wall would prevent them, but also Israeli soldiers would stop them unless they could produce permits.

[alef] Call for Action: Join Urgent Appeal to British PM to Enable Prosecution of War Criminals

Attached is a call to feminist organizations around the world, to sign a letter to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and to British Foreign Secretary David Miliband.

Please distribute widely to anyone who might be interested, and please send us your organization's details if you would like to join in signing the letter (see contact information below).

CALL FOR ACTION
December 19, 2009
Join Urgent Appeal to Maintain Universal Jurisdiction and Enable the Prosecution of War Criminals

Dear Friends,

The Coalition of Women for Peace (CWP) calls feminist organizations from around the world to join us in signing a letter to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Foreign Secretary David Miliband, following their proclaimed intent to change the law that enables British local courts to issue warrants against foreign war criminals.

This decision was declared following an arrest warrant issued last week by a London magistrates court against Tzipi Livni, who was the Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs during the assault on Gaza last year (Operation Cast Lead). If the British government will execute this decision, it will be a dangerous precedent that will risk future attempts to bring other war criminals to justice.

We believe that feminist organizations – which are familiar with the devastating impact of war and institutionalized violence on women and other socially disadvantaged groups – must voice their concern and act against such dangerous policies. As a feminist organization of Palestinian and Israeli Women, we believe that all Israeli officials who made operational decisions during Operation Cast Lead, including Tzipi Livni, should face charges for their involvement in war crimes.

[…]

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions or comments.

In Solidarity,
The Coalition of Women for Peace

Subject: 62nd Anniversary of Partition

Sunday is the anniversary of UN GA R181, the “Partition Resolution”.  Partition remains the elephant in the room.  No one wants to talk about it. … They recognize the State of Israel’s “right to exist”.  Like the supporters of UN GA R181, they deny the right of the people of Palestine to exercise sovereignty over Palestine. What about the dissident supporters of the so-called “one-state solution”?   They don’t turn their minds to how one gets from here to there.  They somehow believe that a democratic one-state solution will fall from the sky, peacefully, without revolution.  That is why these same well-meaning people attribute no role to the actual social and class forces living under Israeli rule and suffering from Israeli rule in besieged Gaza and the refugee camps.  By not recognizing the need for revolution, the one-staters take no interest in the people who have an interest in revolution, those who can and will make a revolution, those for whom the daily struggle contains within it the unripe seeds of that revolution.

All the soft Zionists work hard and make sacrifices for a better, more peaceful, more democratic State of Israel, but they will not admit that the Zionist regime is the number one obstacle to peace and coexistence.  Re-considering Partition, formulating a political strategy for the de-colonization of Palestine -- that, for them, is beyond the Pale.

It's a remarkable fact that the desire to deny mass murder is directly correlated to the desire to commit it, as seen both in Holocaust denial and in the denial of Zionist massacres, which today are accomplished even more by malnutrition than by outright killing, as with the Americans in Iraq. Easier to control the headlines that way - starvation is silent.

What I find most interesting is the similarity in technique between the Jacobs of this world and holocaust deniers. I say technique not scale before anyone leaps up and down. The latter don't deny Jews were killed, it's just the numbers that were exaggerated (among other allegations). Likewise 'only' 100 or so were murdered at Deir Yassin.

It is a historic fact that a massacre took place at Deir Yassin, Duweimah, Tantura and many, many other places. Why then does Jacob pretend otherwise? Is it because he knows that the present Israeli state rests on some very rotten foundations?

HAMAS: They’re not bad, they’re just drawn that way
Saturday, 31 October 2009 13:13
AUTHOR:  Mary RIZZO

In many parts of the West, certain political parties or movements are treated as if they come from the Moon or are alien to any body politic. Their existence among the people is always scrutinised as negative, transitory and something created in a boardroom or a backroom, imposed upon an unsophisticated public that is unable to differentiate a true political programme from empty and simplistic rhetoric. These parties or movements are depicted as if they only address the margins of society who are disenfranchised from any “normal” democratic bodies, and thus, are ramshackle bands that represent a minority constituency. Given their oppositional nature to pre-existing parties, they are outfitted with the label that will serve to keep them isolated from the structures that are already in operation. All of this is to destroy the party or movement by propaganda work rather than analysis of reality.

An entire mythology has been built around the Palestinian resistance movement (which morphed into a party) Hamas. This construct has actually taken on more legitimacy as a factual interpretation of Hamas than the facts themselves. In most of the Western media, no matter if it is on the right or the left, and in some of the “moderate” media in Arab countries, the very name of the party is coupled with terms such as “fundamentalist”, “radical” or “terrorist”. Clearly, this serves to create a fear trigger that will remove the word from being critically and honestly evaluated. The listener will immediately identify Hamas with a negative connotation and is removed from responsibility for understanding that this is a manipulation of reality. The listener is expected to accept the claims that Hamas is “anti-democratic” and “fanatical”. It is child’s play to then convince the listener that Hamas is Bad, that it is the Enemy of all We represent (in our own eyes, tolerance, democracy, Goodness itself). It is possible to then extend that reading to the belief that action must be taken against them, that they are a “cancer that must be gotten rid of”, as quoted by the institutional peacenik, Noa. How does one eradicate a cancer, once it has been diagnosed? By extirpation or bombardment. With cancer treatment, one “bombards” even the healthy parts of the body with toxic agents, waiting to see if after the battle there were enough healthy parts remaining to allow the organism to continue to exist. Once you have set into the minds of millions of people the idea that destruction is good, because the enemy is just so damaging and evil if allowed to exist, the risk of bringing the entire organism to its grave by weakening it dramatically is taken as a viable risk to run. This is a way to make them justify actions that their own eyes don’t see as therapeutic, but are pure horror and evil.

The behaviour of the Palestinian Authority is akin to that of any quisling body. It lacks all political independence and takes its orders from the oppressor state. So it is with Abbas, who has cancelled the PA motion to the UN Human Rights Commission supporting the Goldstone Report for fear of the loss of a lucrative telecommunications deal with Israel.

The nearest and most obvious comparison is with the Judenrat, the Jewish Councils which the Nazis established in Occupied Europe as a means of facilitating the extermination of European Jewry. They too took orders from the oppressor without asking questions.

An End to Jewish Fascism?

The key issue need no longer be a subject of endless debate. There must be a one-state solution consistent with democratic principles of full equality. Informed Americans are no longer willing to support a theocratic state in which full citizenship is limited to those deemed 'Jewish' (whatever that means). If local birth rates suggest an eventual end to the 'Jewish state,' then so be it. Why wait two decades when this nightmare can be drawn to a close in less than five years?

Forget about a return to pre-1967 borders, instead return to pre-1948 borders. Designate Jerusalem an international city under U.N. protection and dispatch multi-national forces to maintain peace. Palestinians should have a right of return, including the ability to recover properties from which they fled under an assault by Jewish terrorists. If Colonial Zionists (aka settlers) want compensation for 'their' property, let them seek restitution from the Diaspora that encouraged their unlawful occupation.

Those who consider themselves 'Jewish' can remain as part of an inclusive democracy. Or they can depart.

Wherein lies the difference between the Aryans and the Zionists? Chiefly in the circumstance that the Zionists were successful in establishing a nation? In excising the Palestinians from the human community? In marginalizing them and confining them to ghettos and concentration camps?

You see, I am having trouble distinguishing the lunacy of our Aryan Nations from that of the Zionists. Can one claim that the Zionists had a legitimate national identity or character whereas the Aryans' national identity was merely hogwash? Aren't we more true to the moral, humanitarian issues at a stake if we regard the Zionist/Israeli claim to nationhood as a pretext posed solely to rationalize a racist agenda, namely, the disinheritance and marginalizing of unJews to the material advantage of Jews.

[alef] "Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis, " by LENNI BRENNER,

They hanged people all over Europe after WW II for notes to the Nazis like these. But these treasons against the Jews were virtually unknown in the run up to the creation of the Zionist state in May 1948. Ninety percent of America's Jews suddenly became emotional pro-Zionists. With Democrats, Republicans and even the Communist-organized Progressive Party competing for Jewish votes in the November Presidential election, Harry Truman's monetary aid bought arms from pro-Soviet Czechoslovakia, and an Israel was born, run by the German Zionists' cothinkers in Jerusalem.

Jews and other Americans still know little of Zionism's sordid past. But today only programed fanatics can come away pro-Zionist after reading plain facts. Indeed, according to the American Jewish Identity Survey (2001), less than 22% of all Jews declare themselves Zionist.

Opposition to Zionism also grows among liberal educated gentiles, every time their declared enemy, Pat Robertson, howls in favor of Orthodox Israel.

[alef] Criminalising Comparisons Between Nazism and Zionism

Always devout believers in freedom of speech, Britain's Zionists are now attempting to criminalise comparisons between Zionist and Nazi practices. London's Jewish Chronicle first ran the story 2 weeks ago. I guess we must call this the fall-out from Gaza....

Now the definition of a nation, which is what ‘Jewish people’ means, is normally understood to mean a common language, economy and territory. Otherwise such a ‘people’ is nothing more than a metaphysical and mystical entity, such as the Aryan race. Before the term 'race' was in vogue it was common to refer to the 'Jewish race.' Jews worldwide speak many different languages, live in and are citizens if a wide variety of countries, and share the common fate of the non-Jews they live with. Yet in order for there to be a world-wide Jewish conspiracy there must be a single world-wide Jewish people, bound together by ties that are political and racial not religious. Indeed this was precisely the criticism that the overwhelming majority of East European Jewry had of Zionism when it first arose. It was validating the very tenets of anti-Semitism.

Even if there is an international recognition of Israel that does not mean that Israel does not occupy Palestinian territories since 1948. It means only that this occupation is supported by many countries. Does this make it legal or moral?

I’m not sure that this argument support what you call settlers (you mean surely the settlers in the territories occupied since 1967). It is true that it points at a deep contradiction for many Zionists supporting peace with the Palestinians.

Sheikh Munis, Ein Hud etc. aren't less occupied than the '67 territories.

Notwithstanding how a political settlement might be, it is obvious that if it’ll will [sic] have to do anything with justice, the realization of the crimes committed during the Nakba and afterwards is an essential part.

Germans were tried and convicted at Nuremberg for these crimes. They raised the defense that similar practices occurred in American and elsewhere but to no avail. The obsession with race, genetics and societies built on these premises were prevalent in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Europe. Social Darwinism and Herbert Spencer. The origins of both Nazism and Zionism derive from this obsession with race and genetics. As many Jewish and other authors have pointed out both the Nazis and the Zionists wanted to get the Jews out of Germany and Europe and to Palestine. "Out with the Jews to Palestine" was a popular anti-Semitic slogan the Nazis used in the 1930's and one that the Zionists agreed with. It is one of histories little ironies that Nazis and Zionists, at least in this sense, shared the same objective.

[alef] Nazi-like?

And the Nazis do serve as a benchmark of sorts of the worst atrocities that can be inflicted on humanity. What is really being said here is that there should be no comparisons between Israel and the Nazis because of the sensitivities of the Zionists on this score, since they have themselves repeatedly summoned up the ghosts of Adolf to slay their enemies with. I'm sorry but I have little concern for the sensitivities of ethnic cleansers and mass murderers so I think comparisons are quite apposite, especially if they might have the effect of making some at least of the Israel people, or its Jewish component, think again. And that is also what it is about.

... But in the case of Gaza there was clearly no threat to the Israeli state, although it claimed there was. Didn't Germany claim that Poland presented a threat? They even went as far as to dress its own soldiers up in Polish army uniforms to attack their own soldiers to prove the point. Is that so different from Israel actively inviting and encouraging the 'rockets' which were eventually launched after November 4th?

But to accuse Ahmadinejad of anti-Semitism is to fall into the inverted mirror image of Ahmadinejad third worldism, a deep Eurocentrism that only knows to judge the world in terms of European categories and remains blissfully ignorant of non European circumstances, logics or categories of thought. In this regard, Brian Klug appears to exhibit the Orientalist thinking so eloquently denounced by Edward Said. Apart from ignoring that the largest Jewish community in the Middle East outside Israel lives voluntarily under Ahmadinejad’s sovereignty, Klug appears to ignore that Ahmadinejad’s extreme language is addressed to Israel and not to Jews. His Holocaust conference was an act of crass ignorance, not anti-Semitism. He falls neatly into the category that Joseph Massad calls Zionist Muslims, and he is an embarrassment to those who support the Palestinian cause. These "Zionist Muslims" deny the Holocaust because they subscribe to the Zionist logic that the Holocaust is the justification for Israel, so they believe that if they deny the Holocaust they will be denying Israel. This is a statement of crass ignorant Third Worldism but not of (western) Anti-Semitism. Instead of fighting Zionism, Ahmadinejad and his mates end up justifying a Zionist claim. And Brian Klug, in spite of his early perceptive differentiations between criticisms of Israel and anti-Semitism, joins the ranks of the Orientalists and those who use accusations of anti-Semitism to deflect criticisms of Israel.

Mark is of course correct. The West Bank is under direct Israeli control. If someone is executed there it is because Israel is happy to see its client Abbas do so.

However an act of treason, which is what this is, would normally merit the death penalty in time of war. I speak as someone opposed to the death penalty but recognise that this is a fact of life. However at least the man had a trial unlike those who face 'targeted assassinations' i.e. extra judicial executions that Israel prefers.

[alef] The only Reich in the Middle East

There are no words to describe this...even "barbarous" does not do it, and much to polite when referring to Israel's savage inhumanity that defies description, and all this going on as Israel engages in celebration for its so-called "independence" day.

Re: [alef] Israeli peace movement
The entire "peace" discourse is misleading. "Peace" is what the colonizer want - no resistance, pacification of the colonized and final subjugation. Hence pax romana and pax americana: all is peaceful at the other end of the gun.The Zionist "peace" movements are part and parcel of the hegemonic apartheid regime. In fact, the existence of the "peace" and "humanitarianism" discourses allow for occupation and suppression to exist and feed into the colonizer's violence ("the most humane and moral army in the world", "humanitarian ceasefire" and other gems)."Peace" should never be the ultimate goal - it's resistance. Resistance to occupation, to expulsions, land seizures. Resistance to racist state apparatus everywhere, to hegemony and domination, to muzzling of dissenting voices, to cultural appropriation, to economic marginalization and to imperial intervention. Resistance should be the basis of transnational (rather than international) anticolonial movements, and not naive reiteration of John Lennon's "give peace a chance". We just can't afford to.

ZIONISM: THE GAME IS OVER

Inspite of all the Zionist atrocities aimed at Ethnic Cleansing, Palestinian Arabs living within the borders of Mandate Palestine are approximately 4.5 million. Within ten to fifteen years, Arabs living in Palestine would become the majority even if the Palestinian Refugees living outside Palestine were not allowed to return to the homes and lands that were usurped from them.

Inspite of having a large army equipped with all the high-tech weaponry provided by the U.S., Israel failed to deter or stop Arab resistance.

On 27 December 2008, Israel launched "Operation Cast Lead" against the Gaza Strip and committed a massacre killing more than 1300 men, women and children and injuring more that 5500. The war was ended on 18 January 2009 without achieving Israel’s goal of ending Hamas.

The game is over. The Zionist lie of a "land without a people for a people without a land" did not fool any one. What we are witnessing these days is the end of the beginning and the beginning of the end, which will not take long: 5 - 20 years.

Yael Korin - UCLA (ykorin@ucla.edu) posted this on ALEF on 18 February 2009

The use of the holocaust to keep anti-Semitism useful to the Jewish state, was the main reason for extraditing Aichman [sic] from Argentina to Israel, to stand trial by Israeli courts. The international community objected this and claimed that he should have stood trial in an international court instead. But the Israeli prime minister claimed that the new Israelis needed to be exposed to the trial, in order to increase their awareness and fear of the holocaust.

Also, prior to the 1967 victory of the 6 days war, the American Jewry did not feel safe to make a mention of the holocaust, and it was considered inappropriate to talk about it, as the Americans and the West was building strong relationships with Germany. Only when Israel became an important and strong allay of the US, it became very fashionable to use the holocaust whenever Israel is being criticized for its acts of aggression.

Edward C. Corrigan (edcorrigan@edcorrigan.ca), associates the Holocaust with "phoney [sic] antisemitic hate crimes", posted on ALEF on 16 February 2009

The claim of phoney [sic] antisemitic hate crimes by Zionists and certain Jewish organizations have been a favorite ploy for decades. These accusations are made to gain political advantage, especially when the group is being criticized for their crimes like their most recent ones in Gaza. This is the primary reason why they do not allow anyone to criticize the truthfulness of the "shoa". They claim that Jews were turned into "soap bars", that their skins where made into "lampshades" and that their "gold fillings" were turned into gold bars by the Nazis. This is also the reason why they are presently asking for the Roman Catholic Pope to resign because last week he forgave Bishop Richard Williamson for saying that he did not believe Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps in "gas chambers."

There have been numerous exposed antisemitic hate crime hoaxes throughout history.

Isracampus hereby issues a public call to the Attorney General of Israel and to the University of Haifa to investigate whether the publication of the names and photos of senior Israeli army officers on the ALEF chat list, together with (false) allegations that these people are war criminals, constitutes incitement to murder!

The names and photos of Israeli military officers who participated in “Operation Cast Lead” are posted on the ALEF anti-Semitic chat list, operated under the auspices of the University of Haifa, so that these officers can be persecuted and harassed legally in Europe. We at Isracampus have decided not to publish the officer names as a public service.  (The names and photos were originally gathered by the Uruknet web site, a site run by exiled Iraqi Baathists loyal to Saddam Hussein)

The names were posted by Dorothy Naor, a notorious anti-Semitic Israeli communist, on ALEF on Jan 25, 2009. She claims that “we and others will continue doing whatever is possible”.

Just as with the definition of a nation, there is no exact definition to genocide.  Clearly if one looks at the numbers of Palestinians and other Arabs killed by Israel since its formation then it may well be 1/4 million or more.   If that isn't a form of genocide then it's just playing with words.  The fact that things were even worse in Gaza in 1956 than today is meaningless.  In what way?

Ran Greenstein, (rangreen@sn.apc.org) ex-Israeli sociologist in South Africa, posted on ALEF on 07 February 2009

The single worse [sic] period in the history of the country was 60 years ago, and the early period from 1947 to 1967 witnessed Israeli atrocities on a far large scale than in the post-1967 period. Gaza in 1956, for example, experienced massacres worse than anything that happened in 1967. And, the early period of occupation in 1967-68 saw more repression in the OTs than in subsequent years. It is true that with the second intifada repression has increased, but viewed in historical perspective, it is simply not true that we can talk about continuous escalation. There are ups and downs throughout the period. All the other similarities between Israeli and Nazi oppression are found in dozens if not hundreds of other cases in the modern era, predating - sometimes by centuries or millennia - and 'postdating' the Nazis, and without any relation to them.

I don't read Hebrew so maybe, instead of making snide points, Ran could actually say what it is he agrees with and what he doesn't, given that Dina Porat is one of the most servile of holocaust historians, and who is on record as saying that a proper 'national' understanding of the holocaust cannot take place anywhere else than on the soil of Palestine. Despite of course the holocaust having of course taken place outside the Promised Land. Maybe that is one of the 'interesting and informative' points she makes? Apart from her villification of Rudolf Vrba, who with Alfred Wetzler, were the 2nd and third Jewish escapees from Auschwitz credited with having saved the 200,000 Jews of Budapest when their Auschwitz Protocols, which Yad Vashem did its best to hide and cover up, were finally publicised, though no thanks to the Zionist movement and Rudolf Kastner who sat on them. Of course Vrba wasn't a Zionist therefore he should have taken heed of the 'national' historians.

Yes I would be very interested to hear what it is that Ran finds so interesting and informative.

'One reason is that it is accepted by all except a small fringe that the standards set by the Nazis were well uniquely evil. The most perfect debasement of humanity, so that is a standard by which to measure all other atrocities.

Secondly given that solidarity is not just a question of academia in ivory towers, but a political struggle and fight, the fact that Israel's propagandists employ the Nazi comparison themselves is one reason why it has been deployed in reverse....

None of the other examples given has the killers accusing their victims of having been Nazi or nazi-like. Hence why the analogy is employed less frequently. But unlesss the Nazi holocaust stands outside of history then of course it can be compared. Why ever not? And there are many comparisons between actual situations and incidents to ideological congruence. When both Zionism and Nazi ideology rejects 'assimilationism' that is a point of comparison. And the attitude to Arabs of certain sections of the Zionist movement does indeed bear comparison with that of the Nazis towards the Jews e.g. the comparison with insects/vermin.

David Axelrod - Senior Advisor to the President – Jewish

Paul Volcker - Economic Advisor to the President, Former Head of Federal Reserve – Jewish

Peter Orszag - Head of Budget - Jewish

Am I the only one noticing that Obama and Biden are not so much assembling staff as gathering a minyan?

*** Elam also posted ***

If we look at “Casted Lead” [sic] in this context the comparison with Nazi politics is absolutely justified although the measures and the circumstance are not identical. There is some common logic and that is that of ethnic cleansing and using the slightest alleged provocation to escalate the racist measures.

Already in 2002 I launched therefore a campaign calling to replace the word Jew (Jude) on a yellow Star of David (here a link to an update from 2004 - http://www.redress.btinternet.co.uk/selam13.htm).

Pity that this academic liar hasn't seen the photos I intend to post tonight on my blog which clearly shows the white phosphorous streams being used to attack a UN school where 2 children were killed and many more injured.

Jewish Nazis like this, and it is no surprise he comes from that hotbed of racism and chauvinism in Bar Ilan University, are no different to their non-Jewish counterparts. One denies the past the other the present. No doubt the 400 children killed in Gaza were mere 'collateral damage'.

[alef] The Nazi Mentality (was they failed again)

Enriquo asks: 'Whether Nazi or not, who cares? It is murderous'. Elsewhere he describes it as criminal. It is certainly both of these things, though one has to ask a crime according to which laws? The laws of Israel do not prohibit what is happening in Gaza, anymore than they prevented the US doing likewise in Iraq.

But I do care whether it is Nazi-like or not. If you class this kind of rally as a collection of individuals who are, as Enriquo describes them, 'madmen, psychopaths, sociopaths' then you remove what is happening from society and attribute it to the personal characteristics of the individual. Unfortunately the Zionist settler attitude to the Palestinians explains the murderousness and it is Nazi-like in character not least because of the exterminationist mentality that lies behind it.

What is happening in Gaza is not irrational. It is a consequence of Zionist colonisation. It is no accident that virtually the whole Zionist spectrum - right to left, including Meretz and what's left of Mapam - supports the attack on Gaza. If we don't understand this then it can be dismissed as a consequence of an election, a particular leader etc. etc.

And we can also be clear on another thing. That Israel and Zionism is already beginning to suffer enormous political harm as a consequence.

Re: [alef] The Nazi Mentality

What makes me uneasy is that it is not the first time I hear that sort of discourse. I call it "The Holocaust on its Head", or something like that. I mean, using the Holocaust tragedy to justify all sort of crimes. How is that possible? I only imagine a way of invoking the Holocaust: like a light upon the nations to prevent them from repeating crimes against humanity. And yet here we have people who defend massacres on behalf of the Holocaust! Yes, they are madmen, psychopaths, sociopaths, whatever you may call them... I loath them because they have destroyed something I cherished above all things: the lessons from Nazi inhumanity to be finally humans, as the moral greatness of so many victims was crying out for us, the whole of the humanity, to march towards goodness. The horror of millions of Jews, Gypsies, Russians, methodically destroyed on behalf of racist supremacy of an evil ideology...

And now, what? Sick people who are able to imagine an essentially similar act of destruction using and abusing those victims for their racist and colonialist despicable ends! In the name of all mine has become a rallying cry for murdering defenceless and poor people, who own nothing, not even a country, who have been subjected to starving ghetto conditions, and now are being wiped out like insects!!!

Whether Nazi or not, who cares? It is murderous. And at the end of the day, if there is any justice left on earth, only a Criminal Court will be able to restore justice, to the victims from now, and to the victims in whose name these barbaric acts are being done.

I believe that you want to obtain the location of terrorist targets to bomb.

I can provide you with many such sites if you wish in the UK, knowing that you should be able to refuel at the US Airforce's many bases here. I can suggest Deal in Kent has army barracks and the navy is based in Portsmouth?

However have you thought of nearer home? I believe the Knesset in Jerusalem has one of the highest concentrations of terrorists in the world. With luck you should be able to wipe most of them out, but do try and give fair warning to the Arab members of the Knesset first.

I also understand that there are paramilitary groups in most if not all West Bank settlements - Ariel and Hebron for example. I'm sure that peace would advance enormously if you were to take these locations out too.

Re: [alef] What is the goal of the massacre in Gaza

I would say the goal of the 4th Reich would comprise a few things, but I am of the firm opinion that one of these goals is to make Jews so very hated worldwide that it would push them to leave some of their respective countries where they now reside (although I think it would not happen here in the USA).  Israel has always been desperate for Jewish immigration, and would go to any lengths to achieve that plus eliminating as much of the Palestinian population as possible.

The Japanese militarists, the American imperial invaders of everywhere, and the Soviet invaders of places like Czechoslovakia have all thought of themselves as victims of those that they massacre and dominate.  Even American white supremacists, when lynching black men or even 12-year-old boys, were defending white womanhood from the black rapists, never oppressing anybody themselves, just as Israel is just defending itself when it steals the lands of peasants and poisons the sheep of cave-dwellers.  So for the Israelis and their supporters to feel like victims when they recreate the Warsaw Ghetto is no amazing thing, considered in history.

'Hamas's covenant has about as much relevance as the anti-goy sections of the Talmud since most political movements do not adhere to their original founding programs.  Hence why Hamas have always welcomed Jews to Gaza who are not racists or advocates of genocide.  It is by their deed you shall know them... Israel's intention to expel the Palestinians, having confiscated their lands, and in the meantime to 'put them on a diet' is clearly reminiscent of e.g. Hans Frank's death by hunger order...Since the holocaust and Auschwitz was kept, not least by the Zionists, from its intended victims, it is unlikely that most Germans had a clue about what was a closely guarded secret so the analogy is more stupid than usual.'

The inhabitants, or inmates, of both Leningrad and the Ghetto were denied food and fuel. And they were relentlessly attacked, bombed, and shot. Guernica has been also invoked many times as far as this particular military operation is concerned: the bombing of the Basque town was made during a market day, when there were many more people on the street than usually.

And like the Warsaw Ghetto, the resistance of the Gazans, pathetic and puny though it is, is more than sufficient reason to indulge in genocide.

...And there are people here who believe that the Nazi mentality hasn't infected Zionists of the Israel 'right or wrong' variety. Maybe Gerson could tell us how many dead Palestinians are necessary before the 5 Israelis who have died in the past 3 years from the puny rockets are atoned for?

[alef] The Nazi mentality and the Israeli mentality

If we proceed, say, from Raphael Lemkin's understanding of 'genocide', then Israel and its Jewish people have been perpetrating a sustained, six-decade act of genocide against the Palestinians. I realize that not everyone is content to follow Lemkin. Some contend that it's not genocide until you actually start marching the people into gas chambers, but I don't know of any Holocaust scholar who does not point out that genocide begins long before the actual killing.

It is fair to point out that the United States is vastly larger than Israel and is responsible for the 'excess deaths' and outright killings of a vastly greater number of the world's people. It seems to me that wars of aggression and the concomitant crimes against humanity amount to a kind of genocide. Americans have invented and embraced the peculiar rationale that bringing death to other peoples is a loving and humanitarian act. Killing people for their own good is likely a sort of covert racism, likely as damnable as Israel's overt racism.

Perhaps we should be interested in whether Israel's treatment of the Palestinians is more like the Germans' treatment of the Jews or more like America's treatment of the Iraqis. My impression is that the Zionists and Israeli Jews have behaved far more like the Nazis than like the Americans.

These are by no means nice people - after all, they killed as many innocent people as the AZmericans do in Iraq and Afghanistan in a whole day not counting insidious deaths forever by depleted uranium.

Of course the majority of Zionists would be satisfied with the two state solution as it legitimizes their conquest and depopulation of Palestine. The majority of Palestinians are forced into submission and acceptance of that "solution" by their Zionists occupiers, their US ally and the collaborative Abbas regime. But that so called solution leaves out the majority of Palestinian - those in the refugee camps, the diasporas and those living inside the Zionist state as second class citizens. The one state solution (in which Israel ceases to exist) isn't something concocted by a "bunch of confused intellectuals", but is common sense, compliance with international law and human sense of justice.

It is all correct, I don't dispute any of this. The one missing issue is that the OSS or One-State Solution (in which Israel ceases to exist) is worth struggling for, while the Two-State Solution is not. The Palestinians were united behind the OSS when the world did not even recognize their existence. They came out of the 1948 very disadvantaged and compromised, with life under martial law within 1948 Israel and hundreds of thousands of them living under awful conditions in refugee camps dispersed throughout the Middle East. Today the situation is still very bad, but more and more people around the world are becoming aware of the fact that Israel itself is an Apartheid state and that keeping it Jewish and Zionist without any attempts to dismantle this system, will not solve the conflict.... Only under the OSS will it be clear that the region can no longer afford nationalistic/racist ideologies to dictate who and where people are allowed to reside, and under what rights. People understood it in regard to the South Africa Apartheid and are beginning to understand it in regard to the Israeli colonial/Apartheid system

It's permissible for gangsters and thugs to retaliate against each other in Israel but for some reason, it is not permissible for oppressed people deprived of even their most basic rights that most of us take for granted to retaliate against those who have committed the gravest of crimes against them (and go on committing).

'For the Jews, certain words have become taboo, especially when used by non-Jews. These include Holocaust, Apartheid and Nazism. Because of the atrocities that took place against Jews throughout history, namely the killing of six million during World War II, political Judaism has allowed itself a near monopoly over human suffering. What is worse, anyone who dares parallel this to the atrocities now carried out by the Jewish state of Israel against Palestinians risks being branded as "Anti-Semitic", a "Jew hater", or an "Israel basher."

'Perhaps this fear of being ostracized and branded with such ugly labels is Israel's most clever tactic because it gives it a guise under which to implement its own schemes, unhindered and largely un-judged. This must be the case in Jerusalem, where so many injustices and racist policies are being carried out on a daily basis against its Palestinian residents, with the world community hardly batting an eyelid.'

The lessons of Kristallnacht for the modern Middle East

Sidney Jacob's denial (Letters, November 5) of the comparison that Paul Oestreicher draws (The legacy of Kristallnacht, (November 4) is a knee-jerk reaction that seeks to portray Nazi Germany's attitude to the Jews as a unique, one-off occurrence [sic]. Unfortunately there are only too many parallels that can be drawn in the period 1933-39.

When Jewish mobs shouted "death to the Arabs" in Acre a few weeks ago, that was certainly reminiscent of pogroms in Europe. When slogans such as "Arabs to the gas chambers" are daubed on the separation wall, the parallels are also clear. When Israeli military and police stand by while Arabs peasants tending their olive groves are assaulted by settlers, and when even international observers are injured, then that brings to mind a similar refusal by authorities in Germany to uphold the law and protect their Jewish inhabitants....

It is very difficult to judge which version is true. One thing is for sure. Even if Kuntar is not telling the truth, he is for sure not proud of killing the child and finds it today a shameful deed.

Victoria,

Good point regarding the embellishment, glad to see other people are getting concerned about such comments (cf the Alef member who has still not corrected the “half those killed by IDF during the Intifada were children”.)

Being in the middle of researching the Kuntar saga the only answer is “who can tell?”

Kuntar has strongly denied the allegation, while admitting everything else. See Chen Kotes-Bar in Ma'ariv (H) http://www.nrg.coil/online/1/ART1/761/666.html translated in the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/jul/19/lebanon.israelandthepalestinians

What we do know is that the evidence was circumstantial, there were no eye witnesses around. We know that the pathologist said that Einat Haran died from a heavy blow by a blunt instrument to the head. This does not rule being hit against a rock. The case against Kuntar also included the stated fact that there was some brain tissue on the handle of his gun. Again I do not regard that it as conclusive proof. On the other hand who can tell what a frightened 16 year old boy did while being shot at?

The only answer we have is that we don’t know but we should not take either the Israeli “vile murderer” or Kuntar protestation of innocence at face value. In assessing our view we should remember what Kotes-Bar pointed out that Einat would have still been alive had Kuntar not taken her father hostage.

Now there is enough for both cheer squads to have a go.

For the record - did Kuntar murder that kid or didn't? does anybody think s/he has reliable info?

And also, concerning that poem: The Occupation is horrible enough without "decorating" it - see eg

"In .Defensive Wall., the most moral army in the world

Indiscriminately killed every woman and child

And for that every soldier and commander was singled out for praise

And how many pregnant women whose bellies were sliced open

Are on the conscience of our army"

I never heard about slicing bellies of pregnant women. Some of it may have happened but that one does not seem typical "feature" of our most moral army, unlike, for example, beating of detainees. Defensive Shield was an act of mass bullying, and was done in the framework of long term policy towards disposession and terrorising Palestinians, but "indiscriminate murder of women and children" was not there. It happened in Ruanda, in 2-nd World War etc but not there. Some women and children died, but it is not the same thing. Things are going for the worse - as most Israelis exempted themselves from decency towards Arabs, and mass murder may still happen given the appropriate conditions, but it did not happen until now.

Other things happened such as mass imprisonment and deprivation of Gazans and much much more, but I would stick to describing things that did happen in as accurate detail as possible.

Let's face it. Israel thrives on incidents such as this, and it's just another way to show the kind of suffering its citizens must endure at the hands of Palestinian "terrorists" and why it must carry out its revengeful acts in order to protect its citizens. It's the perfect excuse for what it would probably do anyway using some kind of pretense.

The only time an incident like this won't be on the front page or not even in a newspaper is when it concerns Palestinians being killed by Israeli soldiers or settlers.  A bulldozer took the life of Rachel Corrie, it wasn't exactly front page news in the USA, or even second page. Rachel, who was the victim, was depicted more like a terrorist.

I also recall a few occasions where Palestinians were killed inside their homes while Israel was in the process of bulldozing them to the ground, yet, I don't remember anyone calling the operators of those bulldozers terrorists.  Yet it was done, not as an individual act, but on behalf of Israel because that was their job, just like Moshe Nissim who operated a bulldozer in Jenin in 2002 that buried some people alive. He may have even received a medal for his outstanding achievements.

The Toronto Star, which failed to report a single word about the assassinations of 4 Arabs (including 2 teenagers) in the West Bank during the past week of course had extensive coverage of yesterday's bulldozer rampage in Jerusalem...

From "Death by bulldozer in Jerusalem," By Oakland Ross,Toronto Star, Jul 03, 2008 04:30 AM;

"Dwayyat had been fined $50,000 for building his house without a permit, and a demolition order was on file, said Hassib Nashashibi, head of a group that defends Palestinians against such orders. That might explain Dwayyat's motivation in the attack, and the circumstances might also influence Israel's decision about whether to destroy the house as punishment....

Local residents evidently fear the threat of reprisals by Jewish gangs bent on revenge, and they also harbour worries that Israeli authorities might inflict punishment upon an entire family....

Married with two young children, Dwayyat was remembered yesterday as a quiet but sociable man with no interest in politics - which would be remarkable if it were true. Everyone in this region has an interest in politics."

The analogy between Zionism and Israel's state practices and Nazism MAY be idiotic (vicious?) at times, but at times it is illuminative.

Nazism didn't begin, it ended with the Final Solution.  Up to then there were a series of legislative enactments and proclamations, mainly additions and ordinances to the Reich Law for the Protection of Blood & Security.  Sad to say too many of them were indeed equivalent to what happens in Israel with its segregated Education system, its attempts to cut Arabs off from the welfare system etc.  The mentality is little different.

In case of a "peace" agreement with Syria, "Israel" would be legitimized by the Arab world and thus the white-European apartheid colony would be perpetuated with very little resistance. The Palestinians will be squashed. At best, they'd hope to accept an agreement that creates a series of bantustans in parts of the West Bank and Gaza. I shudder at the thought of the worst (transfer, which has always been Zionists' wet dream, whether "left" or "right"). And since "Israel" as a white European colony will receive legitimacy from its neighbours, the fate of its non-Jewish citizens would also be sealed. They would either be transferred to the West Bank bantustans, or at best - their second class status would be cemented.

Micah Leshem, Professor of Associate Psychology at the University of Haifa, posted this on ALEF on May 15, 2008:

Well it seems to me that Israel has made a number of novel contributions to warfare.

First of all collateral damage is now clearly a weapon of war. After every Israeli casualty, within hours, infallibly, a greater number of Palestinians are killed. The total count of Palestinian civilians killed and mutilated is about 4-5 times the Israeli casualties, and that disproportion is increasing – the number of Israelis killed has fallen, that of Palestinians killed is rising.

The systematic and daily assassination of political and religious leaders by Israel is also a new weapon of war.

Thirdly, Israel has expanded the semantics of the term “terrorism” and “murder” to include all enemy hostile action. Thus killing or capturing an Israeli soldier on the battlefield is an act of terrorism. The home of the family of a Palestinian combatant who plans to, attempts to, injures, captures, or kills an Israeli soldier is therefore destroyed.

We also have the new concept of “blood on their hands” which extends to religious and political leaders of the enemy on the one hand, but does not apply to Israeli soldiers taken prisoner on the other. All Israeli soldiers taken prisoner are 1) kidnapped not captured 2) cannot have blood on their hands 3) they metamorphose into  “children” or “sons/boys (same word in Hebrew)” in the Israeli parlance and media.

Palestinian terrorists hide in a civilian population, and do not fight the Israeli army (although we note above that that is considered terrorism too). No mention is made of the fact that all the Israeli military camps around Gaza are in civilian residential areas, as are the headquarters of the IDF, in prime real estate in the center of Tel Aviv.

I am no military strategist, but anyone can see the crucial role this double-speak serves to permit the terrorizing of the whole Palestinian community.

It also serves to perpetuate superiority, alienation, demonization, enmity, hate, anger and vengeance as the main weapons exploding any movement toward reconciliation, peace, and cessation of the blood-letting among the Israeli public.

The Israeli security policy is simple. Israel will use any action against the Palestinians that it believes will save Israeli lives, in the long-term if not in the short term. The innocence of the Palestinian non-combatants is not an issue. Killing them, destroying their homes, livelihood farms, commerce, education, health, social, police, judicial, and administrative capacities is kosher. Israel has drawn the line, however, on mass expulsions since ‘67 (although there are various forms of creeping expulsion), and has not carried out mass killings against the Palestinians, arguably excluding the attacks on Lebanon in '82 and 2006.

[alef] New Israeli study: Not more than 5 million Jews were exterminated by the Nazis

In fact the 6 million figure has never been accepted uncritically and indeed it is impossible to know exactly how many died. Raul Hilberg estimated that 5.1 million died. Hannah Arendt I think went as low as 4 million. The reality is that noone knows how many hundreds of thousands, possibly as much as 1.5 million, Russian Jews escaped to or were taken into the Soviet heartland. Certainly whole Jewish villages were evacuated as the Nazis began Operation Barbarossa. Likewise the number of those who were hidden or otherwise survived may have been larger than is recognised.

To those for whom the Holocaust is primarily an ideological weapon to be employed against the Palestinians then of course 6 million is a symbol that cannot be abandoned. But noone seriously believes you can make an estimate within a million and claim absolute accuracy. Rudolph Vrba believed over 2.5 million died in Auschwitz and this was what Hoess, the Commandant also came up with. Hilberg estimates it as little more than 1 million.

It is though interesting that those who deny the Nakba also claim that the Palestinian refugees were not deliberately expelled but merely the unfortunate victims of war.

THURSDAY, MAY 15th, from Midnight until 6pm (EST) - Join us for this historic international radio reflection of the Palestinian Nakba or catastrophe. Content will be hosted by the International Middle East Media Center in Bethlehem (Palestine), in collaboration with CKUT 90.3fm in Montreal (Quebec, Canada), CHRY 105.5fm in Toronto (Ontario, Canada), and KBOO 90.7fm in Portland (Oregon, USA). Including contributions from Pacifica Radio and Democracy Now!

*Tune-in and remember! *

*Thursday, May 15th, 2008, commemorates 60 years of the Palestinian Nakba. In 1948 eighty-five percent of the Palestinians living in the areas that became the state of Israel became refugees. More than 500 Palestinian villages were depopulated and later destroyed to prevent the return of the refugees. Today there are a total of 7 million Palestinian refugees, dispersed throughout the world - the largest and longest running refugee problem yet unresolved.

60-years later, Israel continues to occupy and colonize Palestinian land through the construction of Jewish only settlements and the Wall in the West Bank. The Gaza Strip has been turned into one large prison. Israel violates international law and commits ongoing war crimes and crimes against humanity. And Palestinians abroad are the world's oldest refugee population, making-up more than one fourth of all refugees.

[alef] Re: Kol Israel disgusting sectorial demagoguery and propaganda‏

Having just listened to the program, it surprises even those like me who expect little from the IBA. In a paradoxical way, it is making the case for those who are arguing for an urgent boycott of Israeli institutions. Such level of crude incitement and manipulation of information, provocation, reducing the advocates of post-Zionism to dangerous enemies with a dramatic tone of voice and with dramatic music in the background is a text book example of incitement by denigration. The equation of post-Zionism with anti-Semitism, Nazism and etc, in an authoritative broadcast of official broadcaster of the Israeli state is a way of de-humanizing the individuals that hold those views, a prelude to shooting them by either private individuals or by the state. It reminds the incitement the preceded the assassination of Rabin. We must not forget the inciting role of official radio broadcasts in the crimes in Ruanda.

Please, could some urgently transcribe this program into English? It is crucially important to let the world know if we wish to protect the lives of the people endangered by it.

FALLACY AND BANKRUPTCY OF THE ZIONIST PROJECT:ISRAEL IS A STATE BASED ON ETHNIC CLEANSING AND LAND THEFT

...

When the Zionists began to talk about creation of a state in Palestine, the number of Jews living in Palestine did not exceed 10,000. Accordingly, creation of a .Jewish State in Palestine required Ethnic Cleansing and Land Theft.  And this is exactly what started in 1948 and is still going on to this date.

...

It is about time for the Jews living in Palestine to admit the fallacy and bankruptcy of the Zionist project and to accept to live in peace and harmony with the Palestinian Arabs as equal people with equal rights and to allow the Refugees to go back to the lands and homes that were stolen from them.

This message was posted last night to the faculty circuit of the University of Haifa by the notorious Steven Plaut, a  Professor of Business Administration at the University, who has recently resorted to energetic political activism on the circuit, having reduced for some reason his regular contribution to "web address", in which he urged his readers to send hate mails to a group of Israeli dissenting university professors, providing our addresses.

And Israel falsely alleges Palestinians to be terrorists and Jew haters based purely on their identity so that Israel can carry out its crimes which they've been doing for decades.  Justifying crimes against humanity by demonizing societies of people was a Nazi tactic.  They did the same thing with the Roma Gyspies who they determined to be genetically criminal-minded.

So while the Nazis carried out crimes according to "identity," the New Nazis are doing the same, albeit using different tactics but with the same despicable mentality.

'Medical experiments on Arabs, Arabs to the gas chambers

'Mercaz HaRav - a training centre for illegal occupation, murder and "Arabs to the Gas Chambers"

'A Palestinian killed eight Israeli students in a settler movement training centre, in retaliation for Israel's massacre of over a hundred Gazans, mostly civilians. Hundreds of the seminary students later chanted "Death to the Arabs" at the gates of their seat of learning.1 This was somehow missed by the BBC....The Mercaz HaRav yeshiva is based on contempt for all Gentiles, not only Arabs. ... Since non-Jews are similar to another species in the Kooks’ world-view, the very notion of human rights governing the relations between Jews and others is naturally repugnant to his followers; human rights are definitely not on the syllabus at Mercaz HaRav.'

"Obama's phrasing suggests that Hizbullah launched thousands of rockets in an unprovoked attack, but it's a complete distortion. Throughout his speech he showed a worrying propensity to present discredited propaganda as fact. As anyone who checks the chronology of last summer's Lebanon war will easily discover, Hizbullah only launched rockets against Israeli towns after Israel had heavily bombed civilian neighborhoods in Lebanon killing hundreds of civilians, many fleeing the Israeli onslaught

Classifying the State of Israel as an apartheid state will, hopefully sooner rather than later, subject the rogue Government of the State of Israel to international sanctions under UN International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (entered into force 1976).

Classifying the State of Israel as a "Hafradah" state is a whitewash directed to assist Israeli apartheid evade international sanctions.

Shraga Elam, ex-Israeli Swiss fan of Holocaust Denier David Irving, writing in ALEF Nov 22, 2006:

'Please bring me a single written proof and I’ll agree with you. In order to demonstrate the desperate situation of the intentionalists I’ll quote the “discovery” of a German historian called Christian Gerlach, who in 1998 found an entry in Himmler’s diary from December 18, 1941. After meeting Hitler, Himmler wrote a note saying something like “Jews are to be treated like partisans.”
'The whole world applauded the historian for his important “discovery” and Yehuda Bauer gave a lengthy interview about it to the Ha’aretz Supplement. I wrote a letter to the editor which angered Amnon Rubinstein. I wrote that this entry is no proof at all. First of all it doesn’t say that Hitler told Himmler so and if he did, it doesn’t talk about gassing Jews, as the partisans were shot immediately after they were caught and not gassed. But this had happened already before December and was found by the SS leadership as not effective enough as a method against Jews.
'I wrote that I can understand why Zionists like Bauer are so happy about this “discovery”, because if Hitler ordered the “Final Solution”, it is understood that there was no chance to save Jews and therefore the Jewish Agency leadership was not guilty of abandoning the European Jews and of sabotaging possible large scale rescue chances.
'As I thought that it was possible to convince Irving to stop denying the Holocaust I wrote in a polite way and stated that he was a brilliant researcher, which is a fact not noted only by myself. I thought that it was a good opening and then afterwards decided not to pursue the issue, …

 'It is a very strange situation that even somebody like Eichmann, who was very central to the “Final Solution” (he was present at the Wannsee Confernce) didn’t see a written order from Hitler.  It is widely agreed that Hitler was not a very strong dictator and had no control over many things done in Germany.  What I’m saying isn’t a defense for Hitler. He was a criminal even without Auschwitz. He is directly responsible for many crimes ad not only against Jews.'

 "We can have a long debate about what Hitler did or didn’t know about the Holocaust. It is generally accepted that Hitler was a ‘broad brush’ leader who cared little for detail but laid down overall policy, playing off one faction of the NSDAP against another. … Irving himself, in his failed libel action against Deborah Lipstadt, accepted that the Hitler didn't know thesis did not hold after 1943."

More Shraga Elam, Nov. 22, 2006:

'A German friend told me that for the older German generation the claim that Hitler didn’t know about the Auschwitz project is a very important argument. Because they can claim then that even if Hitler did not know about the industrial extermination how could have they known about it.  I’m not trying to protect any one and I care for the truth, even if it doesn’t fit my prejudices. It is a fact that the “Final Solution” was a top secret issue and it is to be seen in many of the relevant documents.  I see the fixation on Hitler as a wrong political analysis, which doesn’t imply any whitewash of him. It has for me religious component.  I’m totally against the hysteric attitude towards Holocaust Denial (HD). Till now HD is more dangerous to the deniers themselves while the Israel and its lobby make a profit out of it and find in it a justification for expanding the Holocaust religion while more and more people are getting fed up with the over kill.'

Elam adds on Nov. 26:

'I want also to draw your attention that last year the famous playwright and author Rolf Hochhuth called David Irving in an interview a “fabulous pioneer of contemporary history” and “much more serious than many German historians”. Hochhuth who had based one of his plays on a previous Irving’s research said later that he referred to Irving’s work before he had started to deny the Holocaust. Irving was really a very respected researcher till he started to deny the Judeocide. I find it almost amusing that the racists witch-hunters from the IsraCampus.org.il are claiming that I’m disseminating “Anti-Semite” material, because I claim that there is no written proof that Hitler ordered the industrial extermination of the Jews and that he didn’t get real reports on it.'

'Zionism shares many facets with Nazism - see the tribute to Ilan Papper from some illiterate jerk who exclaims that Haifa will smell nicer after he is gone. A good example of the Judaeo-Nazi mind that seeks to cast out any intellectual who goes against the national myth. You simply wouldn't get such a reaction to a radical professor in Britain but maybe that's because the mores of civilization (sic) has yet to percolate throughout most of Israeli academia.

Aengus Snodaigh is absolutely correct to designate Israel as one of "the most abhorrent and despicable regimes on the planet," and this with respect to its own, as well as with respect to Palestinians. Ask Israelis suffering from pancreas cancer who haven't the money to purchase the medication that can extend their lives how the government treats them. Ask 40% of aged Holocaust survivors how Israel treats them. Ask the 1 of every 3 Israeli children that goes to bed hungry how Israel treats him/her. And so on and so on, while Israel continues to pour money into expansion, and ethnic cleansing (with over 9000 Palestinians incarcerated, including children as young as 12 years of age). Israel is becoming a third world country (Israel now has the highest poverty level of any western country) for the sake of globalization and expansion! The government has money but prefers to spend it on expansion and ethnic cleansing. And the Security Council refuses to censure Israel!

Sounds like the 1930s all over again, only now the victims instead of being Jews, other non-Arians, physically and mentally imperfect Arians, and the Sudetenland are impoverished Israelis (Jewish and Muslim) and the Palestinians.

Shraga Elam on ALEF praising the Hamas victory, Feb 1, 2006:

'The sweeping electoral victory of Hamas is primarily a triumph for the Israeli government and a big defeat for Palestinian interests. The international pressure on the Palestinians is growing. If Hamas will not make now substantial and painful concessions it risks a massive cut in the financial international support and further escalation in the Israeli anti-Palestinian measures.   If it will commit such concessions it will not only betray its voters, but the Israeli government will demand more. Now e.g. there is the demand that Hamas will recognize Israel and will declare that it gives up the armed struggle, before substantial economic aid will be rendered. If Hamas will fulfil (sic) these conditions, it will be confronted with others like the impossible demand to renounce the Right of Return for the Palestinian refugees…. Collective punishments have been imposed under the declared goal that the Palestinians will put their pressure on the militants to stop their activities. An alleged aim that the Israeli generals know perfectly well cannot be thus achieved, as the Palestinian civilians can hardly impose such a line on the militants. …From the perspective of the Israeli elite the Hamas electoral victory is a win-win-situation. ,,, It is very difficult for colonialized (sic) people to look for a peaceful and just mode of coexistence with their oppressors and vice versa it is difficult for the colonialists to give up their privileges and arrogant attitudes.'
