The far left Jewish lobby has finally admitted in public that Israel is nothing more than a Jewish ethnostate which has racially-based laws built on Jewish Supremacism, and Israel-supporting Jews who oppose what they call “white racism” in Europe and America are self-serving hypocrites.
The admission was made in a recent article on Mondoweiss, the “progressive Jewish” journal created by former New York Observer journalist Philip Weiss—who once described himself as a “traitor to the tribe.”
In an article titled “Deborah Lipstadt’s double standard on white nationalism and Jewish nationalism,” Weiss pointed out that recent public pronouncements about “white supremacists” and Donald Trump by Lipstadt—the Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University—were blatantly hypocritical because she supports Israel, which has racially-based laws and institutions which she claims to oppose.
Weiss said that Lipstadt had said on radio that the “so-called alt-right” was nothing but a euphemism for white nationalism, which is itself a euphemism for white supremacy; and “the media should cut through the pretense and say ‘white supremacism.’”
“To properly understand the danger, we should call them by what they really are, white supremacists,” Lipstadt said.
Weiss went on to point to an article written by Lipstadt in the Jewish Forward journal that attacked Jewish groups for not “slamming” what she called “anti-Semitism on the Left” and which stated that anti-Semitism was the same thing as anti-Zionism.
Lipstadt went on to write that “anti-Semitism from the left” included developments such as Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party in the United Kingdom, and incidents on college campuses across America, things which she described as “dangerous.”
As Weiss pointed out, Lipstadt is “advocating a double standard. If she is going to criticize white nationalism as a white supremacist ideology, then what about Jewish nationalism?”
The Mondoweiss author pointed out that “Palestinians routinely describe the Zionist regime in Israel Palestine as Jewish supremacy; and there is plenty of evidence to support the victims’ view of the matter.”
Weiss then used an old illustration of a Jewess and a Palestinian demonstrating Israel’s racially-based immigration laws: “As the illustration above makes plain, any Jew can move to Israel tomorrow; but a Palestinian who was born there and made a refugee by the Jewish state is not allowed to return to his or her own village.”
In addition, Weiss admitted, “many laws in Israel discriminate against Palestinians in favor of Jews, including many involving land ownership and zoning that are reminiscent of the Jim Crow South. And if you are a Palestinian living in the occupied West Bank, you can’t vote for the government that rules your life; but a Jewish settler living alongside you in an illegal colony can vote. That would seem to be the definition of supremacy.”
Thus, Weiss, concluded, “Lipstadt is slamming white nationalism while extolling Jewish nationalism. The left is consistent in condemning both.”
Weiss, who in 2007 described himself in an article in the American Conservative as a “traitor to the tribe” for daring to write about Israel from a “progressive” point of view, has, of course, deliberately confused what he describes as “white supremacism” and “Jewish supremacism.”
Almost no one Weiss and other far-leftists would call “white supremacists” want to rule over anybody else, and a far more accurate definition of them would be “white separatists.”
It is also doubtful that many Zionist Jews in Israel want to rule directly over the Palestinians—most would probably want to see only Jews living in Israel—and even on that level, Weiss and his fellow leftists have erred ideologically.
Nonetheless, when these errors in terminology are stripped away, the core of his argument remains valid: namely that the Zionist demand for a Jewish ethnostate to preserve Jewish identity is indeed the same as that made by Europeans who seek European ethnostates to preserve their identity.
For Jews such as Lipstadt to condemn what they call “white supremacists” while endorsing Israel, is, therefore, as Weiss correctly admits, extremely hypocritical.
