Ethic of Zionist Israel unmasks organized Jewry as utterly contrary and hostile to Western values, including free speech

The Jewish Ayatollahs

(The Occidental Observer) -- by Kevin MacDonald --

Jonathan Haidt notes that secular liberals are an anomaly in the non-Western world. Increasingly, this is true of Israel, often touted as “the only democracy in the Middle East.” The reality is that Israel is gravitating to its Middle Eastern Jewish roots, and that means a turn toward religious fanatics gathered around their charismatic rabbis—the guru phenomenon of Jewish social life. A good primer on this is Christiane Amanpour’s God’s Jewish Warriors.

Uri Avnery is an honest Jewish secular liberal, a remnant of the Jews who were influenced by Western thinking and a dwindling minority of Israeli Jews. He is a trenchant observer of the rise of religious fundamentalism in Israeli politics. His latest column, “The Jewish Ayatollahs“) discusses the controversy over recent rabbinic rulings, beginning with pointed examples showing how such things go completely against the grain of contemporary Western culture: “The Archbishop of New York announces that any Catholic who rents out an apartment to a Jew commits a mortal sin and runs the risk of excommunication.” But in Israel, “The rabbi of Safed, a government employee, has decreed that it is strictly forbidden to let apartments to Arabs— including the Arab students at the local medical school. Twenty other town rabbis—whose salaries are paid by the taxpayers, mostly secular, including Arab citizens—have publicly supported this edict.”

The latest controversy is about a book by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, “perhaps, the most extreme inhabitant of Yitzhar, which is perhaps the most extreme settlement in the West Bank. Its members are frequently accused of carrying out pogroms in the nearby Palestinian villages, generally in “retaliation” for army actions against structures that have been built without official consent.” The book advocates the killing of non-Jews in time of war, and, since Israel is constantly at war, that means it’s okay to kill non-Jews, even if they are not threatening Jews and have no responsibility for the situation.

It’s interesting that the book reiterates the idea, central to Jewish ethics, that prohibition against killing in the Ten Commandments applies only to Jews. The moral universalism so central to Western ethics is completely missing here. (Indeed, some Orthodox rabbis distanced themselves from the book, not for any principled reasons, but “if only on the ground that it violated the religious rule that forbids ‘provoking the Goyim’”.)

Righteous non-Jews who behave according to the Noachide laws, thus have some moral value, but they are not morally equivalent to Jews. Being a righteous non-Jew gives no protection if Jews are at war. Avnery suggests that this was the implicit logic in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza when “to protect the life of a single Israeli soldier, it is permissible to kill as many Palestinians as necessary. The result: some 1300 dead Palestinians, half of them non-combatants, as against five soldiers killed by hostile action.”

The ruling applies to all non-Jews, including children if there is a possibility that they could be a threat to Jews when they grow up.

Shapira’s book was endorsed by four leading rabbis, including Rabbi Dov Lior, “the rabbi of Kiryat Arba, the settlement on the fringes of Hebron that cultivates the teachings of Meir Kahane and that produced the mass-murderer Baruch Goldstein.” Lior was questioned by police investigating the possibility that he had violated Israel’s laws against incitement (which resulted in a riot by his followers). Such laws are clearly antithetical to free speech. Interestingly, the Israeli law is being advocated by some as a way to curb the First Amendment free speech rights in the U.S.. The organized Jewish community has vigorously pursued attempts to curb free speech throughout the West...MORE...LINK

Chris Moore comments:

Jewish supremacist fanatics in Israel incite all manner of hatred against non-Jews, and are actually in the process of institutionalising their discrimination, all of which is de facto endorsed by the Jewish establishment there, yet in America, the free speech of condemning organized Jewry for its viscous Zionism and fascism is increasingly being castigated as "hate speech" as a consequence of lobbying by Jewish liberal fascist groups like the ADL.

This is outrageous and simply untenable. The more glaring the double-standards become, the quicker the hopelessly corrupt, Zionist-occupied American establishment and its useful idiot liberal fascist and Judaized Christian Zionist facilitators across the U.S. will thankfully fall.

These people and their supporters are a curse unto America.

Why organized Jewry belongs in Islamic civilization and not Western: Zionists and Muslim nationalists are like-minded and religiously compatible
