Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Criticizing Benjamin Netanyahu is “anti-Semitic”


…by Jonas E. Alexis

Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and Hegel couldn’t live in our modern times. Why? Because they would almost certainly realize that reason and the Israeli regime are incompatible. And they would not appreciate it if a group of individuals is deliberately trying to stop them from exercising their rational inquiry.

Some scholars have perversely and unconvincingly attempted to demonstrate that Kant and Hegel were part of the German “anti-Semitism” in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries,[1] but this frivolous and risible attempt lacks intellectual depth and fails to address historical realities.[2]

The fact is that there is something called subversive movements, and history has taught us that the Khazarian Mafia and their marionettes have been using subversive movements to deconstruct much of the Western infrastructure.[3] Yuri Slezkine himself declares that “The Modern Age is the Jewish Age, and the twentieth century, in particular, is the Jewish Century.” “Modernization,” he adds, “is about everyone becoming Jewish.”[4]

The Khazarian Mafia and their marionettes would want us to believe that the “Jewish Age” is good, but we know what happened to people who tried to criticize it.

Do you want to write a book about the Israel Lobby in the United States (John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt)? You are an anti-Semite. Do you want to criticize Israel’s perpetual wars in the Middle East (Norman Finkelstein)? You are an anti-Semite or self-hating Jew. Do you want to criticize the situation in Gaza (Sara Roy)? You are an anti-Semite or self-hating Jew. Do you want to call a spade a spade? You are an anti-Semite or self-hating Jew. You are a Jew and want to say things like Benjamin Netanyahu is a maniac (Norman Finkelstein)? You are a self-hating Jew. No serious reflections. No evidence. And the end of the discussion.

Here is something that will probably make you want to shake your head in disgust. The German newspaper Hamburger Morgenpost has recently published “The Seven Craziest Leaders in the World.”

According to them, the seven craziest leaders are Kim Jung-Eun, Vladimir Putin, Rodrigo Duterte, Bashar Assad, Robert Mugabe, Ayatollah Khamenei, and Benjamin Netanyahu.[5]

“Frankly, my dear, we invent ‘anti-Semitism.’ It’s been good to us because no one can mess with us anymore.”

Guess what? The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs quickly sent a complaint to the newspaper saying that placing Netanyahu on the list is, well, “anti-Semitic”! Putin doesn’t complain; Duterte doesn’t complain; Assad doesn’t complain; Khamenei doesn’t complain; Mugabe doesn’t complain. Yet Netanyahu’s henchmen thought that Netanyahu is unique and is beyond any form of criticism.

Let’s put this another way. Suppose Wal-Mart closes at midnight and does not allow anyone into the store until the next morning. Would it be anti-Semitic to say that Wal-Mart does not allow Jews into the store after midnight? According to the implications of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs has propounded, it is. The fact that Putin, Assad, Duterte, and others are there is no problem. The fact is that the newspaper put Netanyahu on the same list and that indeed is an unpardonable sin.

We see the logical extension of this in other historical areas. For example, we are told that six million Jews died during the Holocaust, and there are dozens of museums built to memorialize those people. But how many Chinese died in the Second World War? Some historians have put the figure in the neighborhood of 10 million.[6]Other historians have estimated it to be between 15 to 20 million.[7]

Moreover, there were Christians, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and political dissidents who lost their lives in concentration camps as well. Why then don’t we memorialize all the dead, as opposed to just one particular person? Why don’t we build a museum for the Chinese too? There is a serious logical disconnect here.

We see the same logical disconnect elsewhere. For example, flaming Zionist Geert Wilders (he called himself “a Zionist pig”) wanted to ban both Muslim and Jewish ritual slaughter of animals in the Netherlands back in 2012. The Powers That Be instantly called him an anti-Semite.[8]

Israel’s Ashkenazi chief rabbi Yona Metzger declared Wilders’ stand: “This is the classical anti-Semitic way our rites have been targeted and demonized throughout history.” Similarly, Manfred Gerstenfeld, an Israeli author, declared that Wilders was spreading anti-Semitism across Europe.[9]

Metzger and Gerstenfeld did not even mention that the ban was also against Muslim rituals. The ritual slaughter of animals by any group would have been prohibited, but because Jews were included in this ban, Metzger and Gerstenfeld saw the proposed law as anti-Semitic.

How can we have any meaningful discussion with that kind of attitude?

You see, whether the Khazarian Mafia and their puppets like it or not, they are basically saying that the Israeli regime and Benjamin Netanyahu are above the law and rational inquiry. If you were trained in logic, then you would certainly find this wicked ideology repugnant—perhaps even diabolical or Talmudic.

The West cannot afford to live by that incoherent weltanschauung. We need a different system that is based on practical reason and moral order. And Western leaders need to hold the madman in Tel Aviv responsible for his immoral act.
