The Racist Irony of Zionism

by Joseph Anderson Sunday, Dec. 15, 2002 at 3:47 PM

Zionists who accuse others--the opponents of the racist ideology of Zionism--of being anti-Semitic are truly being ironic.



Does anyone see the raw *IRONY* of *ZIONIST* Jews accusing others of being anti-Semitic!!!?

Zionism--a *racist* ideology that that pursues an *exclusively* (or *exclusionary*), politically defined state of legalized Jewish-supremacy. (Israeli 'Jim Crow' or Israeli apartheid.)

Zionism--an ideology that claims that European Zionist Jews have a *superior* right to the land in Palestine. This, in order to impose an unwanted racist state on the heads of the indigenous people. It therefore seeks to systematically remove, originally through Zionist terrorism, military force or carefully contrived laws, anyone who is not Jewish. Zionism oppresses indigenous people who did European Zionists no wrong and who, unlike European Christians, practiced multicultural religious acceptance! (Certain Arab countries expelled some Jews only after Zionists started terrorizing and displacing Palestinian Arabs without Western objection. Zionist terrorists, themselves, often ‘expelled’ Jews from Arab countries by planting bombs, blamed on Arabs, in Jewish neighborhoods.)

There was no call for such a Jewish-supremacist state from the few indigenous Jews living in Palestine. In fact, the European Zionist Jews *hated*, as inferior, the few indigenous 'swarthy' Middle Eastern Jews in Palestine. By far, most Middle Eastern Jews peacefully lived in Iraq in the early 1900's: some quarter-million.

Zionism--a state where the non-Jewish indigenous people (Muslims, Christians, and others) were/are brutally reduced to worse than second-class citizens, forced into apartheid-style 'bantustans,' massacred, killed, or expelled. And using a 5,000-yr-old militant *Jewish religious fundamentalist* argument that "God" promised Palestine to the Jews, or an ancient Jewish presence 'justification' argument, that is literally worse than medieval!

Zionism--an ideology even rejected by numerous Jewish Holocaust survivors and Jewish Nazi resistance fighters or their surviving families, let alone many other Jews (who are often intimidated or silenced by the economic and physical threats of Zionist Jews).

Zionism--an ideology that even sends death threats to dissenting Jews (hey, is *that* anti-Semitic?) like those to Berkeley Rabbi Michael Lerner—himself 'a liberal Zionist'. (A ‘liberal Zionist’ is like a ‘liberal’ pro-apartheid white Afrikaner who merely wants to reduce the worst, most barbaric or unseemly, aspects of oppression).

Zionism--whose many parallels with the practices of Nazism are intellectually and morally inescapable: "It would be my greatest sadness to see Jews do to [Palestinian] Arabs much of what Nazis did to Jews"--Albert Einstein.

How could a people--Jews--who have had their land and homes taken away from them, who have tragically been dispossessed and displaced so often in history, *ever* go take away the land and homes of, or dispossess and mass displace, another people? The irony and tragedy is Shakespearean.

To say that those who oppose the *RACIST* ideology of Zionism--and our country’s *huge* funding of it--are anti-Semitic(!) is indeed *IRONIC*--and an old, standard, smear tactic: it's wearing thin.

As Gandhi said about the Zionist treatment of Arabs in Palestine: "What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct."
