...Frankly, despite the time and energy I have spent exposing the nefarious role in support of Israel played by organized Jewry at every level of American society, political, economic, and social, my biggest problems, from a personal political standpoint, have come from left wing Jews, beginning with those, among them close family friends, Jewish communists, who were ready to lynch me back in 1971 when they learned I had spent four months with the Palestinians in the refugee camps of Lebanon and Jordan. Their anti-Palestinian and anti-Arab racism was so intense that in 1973, when the CPUSA paper, the People's World, put out a photo calendar (without having anything to do with the photo selection), they had to excise a photo I had taken in Jordan's Schneller Camp of young Palestinian women with guns in order to sell it to the comrades.
Successive generations have become only more sophisticated. Leftist Jews from the various Marxist and Trotskyist organizations made sure that the Palestinian issue would be segregated from all the other people's liberation struggles--even while claiming to be anti-Zionist (a word for me that has lost all meaning)--and this lasted up until the first US war on Iraq and then their bleats were limited to that ridiculous slogan that most Americans do not understand, "End the Occupation!" Not a word about stopping US aid to Israel, not a word about AIPAC or the pro-Israel Lobby and when I started speaking about it in the 80s, I found myself marginalized, not only by the faux Jewish solidarity activists but by Palestinian groups, as well, whose leaders had been thoroughly colonized by the Jewish activists and by that pied piper of disinformation. Noam Chomsky, who even Israel Shahak, his old friend, had to admit, served AIPAC's cause.
What Gilad has provided is an explanation for this phenomenon and the hysterical responses to what he has written from Jews such as yourself, from Greenstein and Weizfeld and the earlier railing against him by the International Anti-Zionist Jewish Network confirms his theory for which, I assume, he is much appreciative. I have read his book and while I don't agree with all his conclusions, I do agree with the most important, his analysis of Jewish identity and the problems it creates in the political sphere and not only for the Palestinians. If you do not think that the build-up for a war against Iran and the draconian sanctions against that country and its people have been directed by Jews, inside and outside of the US government, on Israel's behalf, you are not only in denial, you are part of the problem. If you do not think that the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in 1948, followed by the 1967 war, and the decades of occupation and dispossession of the Palestinians, are not primarily the responsibility of Israeli Jews and their supporters internationally, you are part of the problem since, whatever else you may say or do, you are providing protective cover for the perpetrators...MORE...LINK

Chris Moore comments:
Let's just get it all out in the open. If these Zionists engineering all of this want to argue the merits of Judeo-supremacy and why the West should go to war for it, that's their right. But let's stop pretending that Judeo-supremacy isn't a primary principle of what all of this war-making is about.
Maybe the Judeo-supremacists will win the argument, maybe they won't. But let's HAVE the argument instead of walking on egg shells about the entire issue, which is why we never get anywhere in stopping any of it.
I know that the Judeo-supremacists don't want us to get anywhere, which is why they suppress discussion of the issue. But why should those on the other side of the issue agree to that self-destructive set of rules?
