Book review: The Wandering WHO?
(Veterans Today) -- by Paul J. Balles --
Gilad Atzmon, scholar, prolific writer and leading jazz saxophonist has authored the book The Wandering WHO? In it he astutely explores the identity crisis he himself experienced and one faced by many Jews.
Gilad struggled with the conflict between his early experiences as an Israeli Zionist and his awakening as a humanist.
His book reveals an innate ability to switch between the qualities of a down-to-earth artist (the successful sax player and word-smith) and the knowledgeable philosopher.
Without doubt, The Wandering WHO? will awaken many readers– pleasing some and disturbing others.
The pleased will include those who have experienced similar awakenings or resolved identity crises by continuously asking questions.
The book will also find welcome readers among those who have sought honest answers to the many contentious issues involving Jewish identity, Jewish politics and Israel.
The disturbed will include those Gilad might refer to as “separatist Jews…kind of a bizarre mixture of an SS commander and a Biblical Moses.”...
Some of the gems of Gilad’s wisdom found in The Wandering WHO? include:
“It is not the idea of being unethical that torments Israelis and their supporters, but the idea of being ‘caught out’ as such.
“The more they (Israelis) insist on loving themselves for who they think they are, the more they loathe themselves for what they have become.
“Otto Weininger helped me grasp who I am, or rather who I may be, what I do, what I try to achieve and why my detractors invest so much effort trying to stop me.
“Thanks to Weininger, I realised how wrong I was – I was not detached from the reality about which I wrote, and I never shall be. I am not looking at the Jews, or at Jewish identity, I am not looking at Israelis. I am actually looking in the mirror. With contempt, I am actually elaborating on the Jew in me.
“…the bitterest anti-Semites are to be found amongst the Jews themselves.
“Jewish lobbies in the USA and Britain openly advocate for the extension of the ‘War Against Terror’ against Iran, Islam and beyond. I would never claim that this type of warmongering is inherent to Jews as a people, yet, unfortunately, it is rather symptomatic of Jewish political thinking – left, right and centre.
“A Judeo-centric political exercise, namely self-determination, which comes at the expense of others.
“From Karl Marx through Leon Trotsky to Herbert Marcuse, a sizable fraction of the revolutionary anti-capitalist literature has been authored by Jews.
“As a young man, I myself took part in some Jewish righteous parades, ready to grab my sword and join the hunt for a Tsar, a capitalist or any other enemy who might cross my way. But then the inevitable happened: I grew up.
“Robbery and hatred is imbued in Jewish modern political ideology on both the left and the right.
“‘The Israeli’ robs in the name of ‘home-coming’, the progressive Jew in the name of ‘Marx’, and the moral interventionist murders in the name of ‘democracy’...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
Organized Jewry and its disgusting, pathetic, greedy, cynical and craven defenders, partisans, emulators, collaborators, followers and useful idiots: thieves and murderers under whatever guise.
Their reign of terror is slowly but surely coming to an end, and this time there will be no doubt that they deserve and have earned every iota of unstoppable wrath that is bearing down on their evil hearts and minds with the full force of God and history.
At this point in time, I wouldn't want to be in a Zionists shoes, or even within shouting distance of one. And their various fronts -- Marxism, left-liberalism, liberal internationalism, neoliberalism, neoconservatism, Judeo-Christian Zionism -- are all unraveling one after the other, leaving the lot of their adherents scrambling for excuses and cover like cornered rats.
What a spectacle; what a disgusting, belly-crawling, craven spectacle these people are, all of them.
