Zionists predictably slam theory that organized Jewry is racist and greedy, seeks to exploit Holocaust for profit, political and social advantage

Critics slam thesis that alleged ‘Jewish racism’

(Canadian Jewish News) -- By PAUL LUNGEN, Staff Reporter

TORONTO — The University of Toronto is coming under fire for granting its “imprimatur” to a master’s thesis that critics say is an allegation of “Jewish racism” and is of low academic standards.

In a letter to University of Toronto president David Naylor, retired sociology professor Werner Cohn said the thesis posits that “the Jews of the world, most particularly those of Canada and the United States, are racist and seek to oppress people of colour everywhere.”

The thesis, Cohen goes on, is averse to empirical data, and its author, Jennifer Peto, “makes wild… charges against her fellow Jews without a shred of evidence.”

The document in question is titled The Victimhood of the Powerful: White Jews, Zionism and the Racism of Hegemonic Holocaust Education. It was submitted as part of a master of arts degree in the department of sociology and equity studies in education at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education (OISE), a branch of the University of Toronto.

Summarizing her thesis, Peto stated that it “focuses on issues of Jewish identity, whiteness and victimhood within hegemonic Holocaust education. I argue that today, Jewish people of European descent enjoy white privilege and are among the most socio-economically advantaged groups in the West. Despite this privilege, the organized Jewish community makes claims about Jewish victimhood that are widely accepted within that community and within popular discourse in the West.

“I propose that these claims to victimhood are no longer based in a reality of oppression, but continue to be propagated because a victimized Jewish identity can produce certain effects that are beneficial to the organized Jewish community and the Israeli nation-state.

“I focus on two related Holocaust education projects – the March of the Living (MOL) and the March of Remembrance and Hope (MRH) – to show how Jewish victimhood is instrumentalized in ways that obscure Jewish privilege, deny Jewish racism and promote the interests of the Israeli nation-state.”

Cohn, who is retired from teaching at the University of British Columbia, said the thesis is making the rounds in academic circles and was forwarded to him by a friend at the University of Washington in Seattle. PajamasMedia.com carried a critique of the document and the University of Toronto, while the National Post ran an article from the Eye On A Crazy Planet website, run by blogger Richard Klagsbrun.

Cohn said the University of Toronto had failed to adequately vet the thesis before approving it. “It’s terrible that an arm of the University of Toronto gave it its imprimatur, that this is a contribution to knowledge...MORE...LINK

Chris Moore comments:

Peto is correct that ethnocentric organized Jewry is institutionally racist and insatiably greedy, and additionally that it has inflated the Holocaust in order to leverage it for social and political gain, including Western wars for Jewish supremacist Israel. However, she is incorrect that this is an example of "white privilege."

Jews neither see themselves as White, nor identify themselves as White, but rather as Semitic. Additionally, organized Jewry is deeply hostile to Whites, seeing them as the bearers of "anti-Semitic" Christianity and Western civilization.

For the apparently left-wing Peto to characterize organized Jewry as White is as absurd as if she were to characterize wealthy, light-skinned Arab Muslims living luxuriously in America as examples of "white privilege." The reason she does so is because the racist, anti-White Left has developed and advanced the fallacious theory that Whites are the root of all evil for political purposes, and purposes of transferring Western economic wealth cultivated under White Christianity and Western civilization to themselves. (Ironically, this anti-White subtextual racial theory was originated and retailed by Marxist Jewry to serve the Judeofascist-Left political and material agenda, hence Peto is aping Judeofascist talking points with her "white privilege" rhetoric).

In Peto's left-wing framework, for Jewry to be "racist," it can't be Semitic, but it must be "white." If it is Semitic, it would mean perhaps that Whites are NOT the root of all evil, but possible Semites can be evil, too; and if Semites can be the carriers of the "evil" seed, than so can Arabs...and Asians...and Blacks...

Indeed, Peto might as well describe Empire-profiteering warmonger Barack Hussein Obama as an example of "white privilege."

It's time to put this institutionally racist, Judeo-originated ideological tribalism in the rear view mirror, from Left to Right.
