Herzl was an Anti-Semite in Disguise..

The wealthy Jews control the world, in their hands lies the fate of governments and nations. They set governments one against the other. When the wealthy jews play, the nations and the rulers dance. One way or the other, they get rich” ..Theodor Herzl

  1. “But then, they are not Israelis and they wouldn`t approve of the Israeli agression and deception.”

    Spinoza is the first philosopher to have articulated clearly the distinction that ought to be made between the secular and the religious. He was from a converso family and knew the pain of being exiled and persecuted. He would have applauded Israel, the Jewish state, that does what it can to protect its citizens from an implacable enemy hell bent on their destruction and annihilation. He would have liked to be able to live as an atheist Jew, something he couldn’t openly be in Amsterdam.

    Einstein did not want to be an active Zionist but he understood what it took to become a free people. The servile, obsequious Jew was no longer an option once Zionism started. Read Isiah Berlin’s famous article about Einstein and Israel to get an understanding of the intricacies involved in his position.

    Claude Lanzmann, the fabled creator of the 9 1/2 hour documentary film “Shoah” about the murder of the European Jews in the death camps has an impeccable Leftist provenance.

    In 1994 he released another long documentary, “Tsahal”, a film about the Israeli army. The new release of this documentary includes a discussion between Lanzmann and Ehud Barak.

    I found interesting Lanzmann’s sober look of appreciation and respect for Israel’s military power and ethos. I recommend reading the whole interview.

    Here is a key passage:

    In “Tsahal” I also knew exactly what I wanted to tell: the creation an army, the construction of an army, the creation of courage. This army represents a victory of the Jewish people over themselves. There had never been a Jewish army before. My film tells how Jews took their fate into their own hands to avoid ever become victims again. I show how they overcame the victim role and overcame a mental predisposition.

    In the Israeli army life is valued higher than anything else. And yet every soldier in the Tsahal is prepared to give his life. Unlike other armies of the world, the soldiers of the Tsahal do not die for the glory of their fatherland, they die for life alone. You should not forget that the genocide of the Jews in the Second World War was not just a murder of innocents. It was also a genocide of the defenceless. My film describes the path to overcome defencelessness. It describes how the Jewish people empowered themselves with weapons and it describes the psychological metamorphosis that the people had to undergo, in order to build an army like the Tsahal, in order to be able to defend themselves, to be able to kill.

    For decades, young Israelis have been growing up with the insecurity of knowing that no-one can guarantee that “Israel will still exist in 2025”.

    In this interview Lanzmann clarifies in no uncertain terms the repeated mistake made by nearly everyone who cares to weigh in on the I/P conflict, that Israel seeks to justify its very existence by making political fortune out of the Holocaust. Not so. Says Lanzmann, and I agree. Israel has vowed that the Holocaust was the last time the world witnessed the extermination of defenceless Jews. Israel makes sure that Jews living within its borders will never again be victims.

    I know this is a troublesome concept for many Far Leftist Jews, represented by the likes of Rabbi Lerner, Richard Silverstein, Norm Finkelstein, Jerry Haber, Jews Sans Frontiers, to name but a few. They appear to prefer, seriously, the diasporic Jew. Hannah Arendt was sympathetic to this hankering for righteous powerlessness, up to a point, as she elaborated in her 1964 interview for German TV:

    “..one pays dearly for freedom. The specifically Jewish humanity signified by [Jewish] worldlessness was something very beautiful… it was something very beautiful , this sundering aside of all social connections, the complete open-mindedness and absence of prejudice that i experienced… Of course a great deal was lost with the passing of all that. One pays for liberation. I once said in my Lessing speech. . .

    Gaus : Hamburg in 1959 . . .

    Arendt: Yes, there I said that “this humanity… has never yet survived the hour of liberation, of freedom, by so much as minute” You see, that has also happened to us.

    Gaus: You wouldn’t like to undo it?

    Arendt: No. I know that one has to pay a price for freedom. But I cannot say that I like to pay.”


  2. Herzl’s comments do not shock me. At school in Israel we learned that he belonged to an assimilated family and that he had nothing to do with Judaism. What surprises me is the depth of the loathing for Jews he acquired from his antisemitic society. Hannah Arendt explored this theme of the “exceptional Jew” syndrome in one of her earlier books. His journey to find a solution to Jewish distress and survival had to pass through the Dreyfus Trial when he realized that conversion to antisemitism does not really solve the problem of antisemitism; only exacerbates it. Arendt said in 1935: “If one is attacked as a Jew,” she said, “one must defend oneself as a Jew. Not as a German, not as a world-citizen, not as an upholder of the Rights of Man.”

    And Herzl understood that lesson all too well. The fact that he was not a religious Jew meant that he could contemplate a land for the Jews in Uganda. Fortunately, when the offer was made, other prominent Zionist voices, whose view was that only Zion, the historical homeland of the Jews, would justify such a project, would have none of it.

    BTW, Baruch Spinoza was the first secular Jew who understood that Judaism only makes full sense when it is practiced by Jews in the land of Israel.

    Do you know who Spinoza was?

    Your history lesson is only interesting in the way you tell the story of Herzl and Zionism. It shows no attempt at insight, no real interest or understanding of history (despite your great and deep interest in the subject), no enlightenment when it comes to comprehending the history of the Jews in Europe. It’s a comforting tale for Arabs for whom there is no lie so unbelievably stupid that it cannot be embraced by the populous.


    1. I know who Spinoza is.
      And who Einstein is
      I even know and like the work of Marc Chagall as much as i like the violin concertos played by the vituoso Itzhak Perlman.
      No one in his right mind could not like nor admire their contribution to humanity.
      But then, they are not Israelis and they wouldn`t approve of the Israeli agression and deception.
      I only don`t like the massacres and the ethnic cleansing the Israelis are doing just to take over the land.
      And if you want to know how i view the history of the jews, you can read my article ” palestinians are the descendants of ancient Israelites”


  3. Kindly watch the inserted video in my article.
    By the way, it is an Israeli documentary film produced by the Israeli TV.
    .. One last thing, though your Kippah is clearly in sight, i enjoyed your comments.


  4. I googled your quote, because I wanted to see where it came from. I found no reliable source for this citation. AS you can see, the search results brings me back to your blog and other antisemitic blogs, in some of which you seem to participate.


    I presume you copied this quote from a book. Can you please provide the title of the book and the name of the author? Maybe a page number?
