Israel is a Racist, Colonizing Nation - The Unmentionable said by Auschwitz Survivor Hajo Meyer
Saturday, 04 July 2009 04:44
by William C. Carlotti,

It was with considerable interest that I read the interview with Hajo Meyer and, of course, his personal experiences with the Nazi led government of Germany, the Nazi led occupation of the Netherlands, and his experiences in Auschwitz are tragic and important.

At the same time, however, these same experiences serve to focus his historical perspective. So, when he encounters the activities of the Jewish Zionist led, Christian Zionist supported Israeli government that have similarities to his experiences in each of these nazi created environments he makes what he considers to be valid, based on his experiences, comparisons.

According to the interview, Mr. Meyer makes the comparison that coincides with his experience:

“I can write up an endless list of similarities between Nazi Germany and Israel. The capturing of land and property, denying people access to educational opportunities and restricting access to earn a living to destroy their hope, all with the aim to chase people away from their land. And what I personally find more appalling then dirtying one's hands by killing people, is creating circumstances where people start to kill each other. Then the distinction between victims and perpetrators becomes faint. By sowing discord in a situation where there is no unity, by enlarging the gap between people -- like Israel is doing in Gaza.”

“Of course it is positive that parts of the Jewish population of Israel try to see Palestinians as human beings and as their equals. However, it disturbs me how paper-thin the number is that protests and is truly anti-Zionist. We get worked up by what happened in Hitler's Germany. If you expressed only the slightest hint of criticism at that time, you ended up in the Dachau concentration camp. If you expressed criticism, you were dead. Jews in Israel have democratic rights. They can protest in the streets, but they don't.”

This last, “Jews in Israel have democratic rights. They can protest in the streets, but they don't.” is a clear distinction between what went on in the brief period—approximately two decades — in the environments created by the nazi led, fascist led German, Italian, Spanish governments that so much of our history of brutalizing, murderous regimes has focused on and what is going on in the current Zionist led Israeli government created environment.

It is a critical distinction.

This critical distinction between Zionist led Israeli government’s created environment and the Nazi led German government’s created environment makes the totality of the comparison demonstrably invalid even though elements deserve comparison.
 

What is Zionist led Israel doing and what historical comparison would be more valid than the comparison to Nazi led Germany’s created environment?

First, the Jewish Zionist led Israeli government is bombing, strafing, shooting the people of Palestine; using behemoth bulldozers supplied by Caterpillar to demolish more than a thousand Palestinian homes and eradicate hundreds of whole villages and towns; crush thousands of hectares of decades old olive and orange orchids; they fly their supersonic jets low over the Palestinian population and break the sound barrier to create the sonic boom that has deafened hundreds of vulnerable Palestinian children; they are building ghetto style armed Jewish settlements all over the territory of Palestine; they restrict the water, the electricity, the medical care, the sewage, the education, the employment, the travel, the communications and every facet of the lives of the people of Palestine; they make targeted assassinations of the selected and elected representatives chosen by the people of Palestine killing dozens of other people in the process; they have confiscated court, land and title records that confirm the property rights of the people of Palestine; they are building a wall to recreate their beloved ghetto existence armed to the teeth with nuclear bombs and chemical and biological weapons: they have driven millions of the people of Palestine off of the land of their forebears, they hold thousands of Palestinians, not only men. but also women and children in prison many of whom are tortured.

In the meantime, the Israeli economy is nominally flourishing, the Israeli government, its administration, its Knesset, its courts, its Supreme Court, its army, navy. air force, its clandestine intelligence, its regularly held elections, its colleges, universities, religious institutions, its factories, schools, water electricity, transportation, farming, international trade are all functioning.

As Mr. Meyer says: “Jews in Israel have democratic rights. They can protest in the streets but they don’t.”

The question is then, What is the appropriate historical comparison for the Jewish Zionist led created environment?

Israel is a racist, colonizing country.

It is a racist colonizing country just like the democratic French government as the racist colonizer of Viet Nam (remember Dienbienphu) and Algeria that Franz Fanon wrote about; just like the democratic government of Italy as the racist colonizer of Ethiopia and Libya; just like the democratic government of the Netherlands as the racist colonizer of the East Indies: just like the democratic government of Belgium as the racist colonizer of the Congo (remember King Leopold); just like the democratic government of Germany as the racist colonizer of East Africa; just the democratic government of England as the racist colonizer of India (remember Ghandi) , Rhodesia and South Africa; just like the democratic government of Australia as the racist colonizer of its indigenous people and in its completed genocide of Tasmania; just like the democratic government of the United States as the racist, genocidal colonizer of the indigenous population and the African slave trade.

In each of these countries its citizens had the same democratic rights as those that Mr. Meyer describes for the Jews in Israel. And in each of these countries the opposition to the racist colonizing was ”paper thin”.

And, in fact, it remains so.

The United States, with its unspeakable history of racist colonizing, refused to send representatives to the United Nation Conference On Racism. France, Italy, Belgium, Australia, and England, each with its own unspeakable history of racist colonizing, formed a coalition of racist colonizers to walk out of the conference in opposition to the Conference’s condemnation of Zionist led Israel’s racist colonizing.

In fact, the racist colonizers in the European Union have invited Zionist led Israel’s racist colonizing government to join the European Union.

So, if we are going to make historical comparisons we ought to get it straight — ISRAEL IS A RACIST COLONIZING STATE—without the kind of caveat-like exception that Mr. Meyer’s experiences compel him to make and that serve the purposes of Zionist exceptions.

Except..
... for the fact that Nazi Germany wasn't constant attack from anyone.

Except for the fact that Israel doesn't indoctrinate its children from the cradle to describe its enemies as the 'children of apes and pigs'

Except for the fact that Israel affords all Arab Muslims within its borders human and civil rights they could only dream of in Muslim countries (77% of Israeli Arabs recently sad they would live nowhere else)

Except for the fact that Israel does not commit mass-scale genocide

Except for the fact that Israel has not and never will call for its neighbours to be 'wiped off the map'

...I could go on. I have much respect for the writer insofar as he is a survivor of an unspeakable atrocity and no doubt a man of great courage and conviction. But to compare the modern state of Israel to Nazi Germany suggests either a touch of Stockholm syndrome; or, regrettably, that there's no fool like an old fool.

Lies-lies and more lies

Israel affords all Arab Muslims within its borders less the 3rd class citizenzship and has many racist laws

Israel commits mass-scale genocide regularly, gaza 2009, lebanon 2006....I could go on

Israel may not call for its neighbours to be 'wiped off the map'
instaed Israel actively ethnic cleanes paletine and bombs it neighbours and starts wars to win votes

Conversation-stopping ad-hom
How easy to bandy around that old liberal standby - the 'racist' epithet - especially when you proffer no evidence to substantiate your position. As for the accusations of genocide - this is just blind prejudice - regurgitating the old blood libel lies. Take some time out to learn a little more about the political realities of the region (and lose the scales from your eyes about the Palestinians' studied victimology) and your posts may ressemble a little less the one-sided rant you have just posted.

Where there's smoke there's fire.
In 1947-48, Palestine and Israel were at war. The Palestinian Army ordered Palestinian citizens to evacuate their homes. The few that didnt leave were ordered out by the Israelis. The Displacement of Palestinians was in fact the result of their own Army. And yet, for decades Palestinians have hidden behind false claims. Four times, Arab coalitions have attacked Israel. The last one, Yom Kippur 1973, was halted by UN Resolution. Afterwards, terrorism was born and has been growing ever since. They dont seem to know when to quit.

Waffen SS Col Alois Brunner fled to Damascus, Syria, in 1951, just three years after Israel was formed. In WWII, he was in charge of the concentration camp outside Paris, and then was promoted to Colonel and went to work for Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Final Solution. He made colonel at a young age and saw General as his ultimate glory in the Third Reich. In Syria, he went to work for the Surete, secret police, and one day at a time, one Syrian at a time, he has turned Damascus into a safe haven for terrorists like Hamas-proving that old Nazis dont go away. In fact, Hamas may even be his creation-to further the Holocaust against the Jews. One thing's for sure: We ended Brunner's glory in the Third Riech and he must have been bitter.

To compare Israel to Nazi Germany is ludicrous. The mere presence of a Nazi like Brunner in teh Middle East begs one to consider what influence he's had on Syrian officials and why Syria employed him as an adviser in Intel, Espionage, and the torture of political prisoners and Jews. And why Syria has repeatedly denied all knowledge of his presence in Syria. If we dont consider this, can we even begin to see what's really happening in the Middle East?

Al Zawhari, #2 in Al Qeada, received his psychiatry degree at the U of Cairo. 12 of Hitler's mind control scientists fled to Cairo after WWII and found work in the Psychology Dept at the U of Cairo. Its been documented that Joseph Mengele made trips to the Middle East after Brunner moved there. Perhaps we dont see the obvious because we want to believe that WWII ended and the Nazis went quietly into history. When Ted Bundy moved from Washington state to Utah, it wasnt long before he murdered again. Without serious intervention, there is no reason for a murderer to change or stop. Perhaps we are naive, or maybe we think the war ended because Hitler committed suicide. Or was Hitler's suicide just a diversion to make us believe the real threat behind Naziism was gone, and to give time to any Nazi who could escape prosecution? If Field Marshall Hermann Goring tried to say something with his lengthy and infamous diatribe at the Nuremburg War Trials, perhaps it was a message from Hitler himself: "You think you won the war, but what have you really won? You didnt stop me and you cant stop me. Surrender!" It's what Hamas tried to tell Israel with rockets after Israel invaded Gaza. You'd think they would know when to quit. Misery loves company.

Speak out
"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men." A Lincoln
His words describe not only the way slave owners controlled slaves, but also how the slave trade corrupted a people.
Terrorism is using this technique to control the world. When you dont speak out in response to a suicide bomber, or when you temper your protest, cowardice stares you in the face. That is the only thing the terrorist can do to us: make us into cowards for not protesting his viscous assault on the innocent. We have tried to temper our protests to avoid inciting another bombing or attack, but it is not working. The terrorist will not stop: that is his message, "You think you won the war, but what have you really won? You didnt stop me and you cant stop me. Surrender!"

His goal is to turn us against the Israelis, and blame them for the mess the terrorist created. Its an illusion and is hiding an abyss: the abyss of self-doubt. Once in the abyss, the terrorist will look down on us and laugh at our foolishness. He holds the way out, and for a price, he'll let you up.

It's a nightmare. Dont buy into the illusion, and speak out, loud and long.

Adolf Eichmann was not "the architect of the Final Solution" that Leo claims. He was a functionary much like the commanders of Abu Gharaib and Guantanamo are functionaries.. Hannah Arendt, who covered the Eichmann trial in Israel for the New Yorker, made it clear in the articles she wrote covering the trial. She later published the book "Eichmann In Jerusalem:A Report on The Banality Of Evil". She advanced the thesis that evil can simply be a function of banality—the tendency of ordinary people to obey orders and conform to mass opinion without critically thinking about the results of their action or inaction---in the way that the evidence in Eichmann's trial made clear. European (mostly German) Jews made an arrangement with Hitler’s Nazi German government some seven months or so after Hitler came to power in 1933. The arrangement became known as Ha’avara (the Transfer Agreement). Nazi Germany and the Jewish Agency concluded the transfer negotiations, allowing Jews emigrating from Germany to Palestine to deposit their assets in Germany and receive Palestine pounds upon their arrival in Palestine. The Zionist Federation of Germany, the Anglo-Palestine Bank, and the German economic authorities signed the Agreement on August 25, 1933, permitting the transfer of Jewish capital from Germany to Palestine by immigrants or investors. Through this unusual arrangement, those Jews bound for Palestine deposited money in a special account in Germany. The money was used to purchase German-made agricultural tools, building materials, pumps, fertilizer, motor transport, and other goods of all kinds and descriptions, which were exported to Palestine and sold there by the Jewish-owned Ha’avara company in Tel-Aviv. Money from the sales was given to the emigrants upon their arrival in Palestine in an amount corresponding to their deposits in German banks. German goods poured into Palestine through the Ha’avara, which was supplemented a short time later with a barter agreement by which Palestine’s oranges and agricultural products were exchanged for German timber, automobiles, agricultural machinery, and other goods.

The Agreement enabled German Jews to meet the requirements of the British certificate of immigration and served the Zionist aim of bringing Jewish settlers and development capital to Palestine, while it simultaneously served the German economy with an increase in the production and export of German goods to offset its economic depression. For a time, the Ha'avara Agreement helped the Nazis in undermining the anti-Nazi boycott initiated by the American Jewish Congress only weeks before the agreement was signed. The negotiations for the agreement were initiated six months after Hitler came to power by the Zionist Federation of Germany (by far the largest Zionist group in the country), which submitted a detailed memorandum to the new government. The memorandum reviewed German-Jewish relations and formally offered Zionist support in "solving" the vexing "Jewish question." The first step, it suggested, had to be a frank recognition of fundamental national differences: "Zionism believes that the rebirth of the national life of a people, which is now occurring in Germany through the emphasis on its Christian and national character, must also come about in the Jewish national group. For the Jewish people, too, national origin, religion, common destiny and a sense of its uniqueness must be of decisive importance in the shaping of its existence … because we, too, are against mixed marriage and are for maintaining the purity of the Jewish group and reject any trespasses in the cultural domain, we—having been brought up in the German language and German culture—can show an interest in the works and values of German culture with admiration and internal sympathy …" As a result, the Hitler government vigorously supported Zionism’s proposal for Jewish emigration to Palestine from 1933 until 1940-41. So thorough was the collaboration that the SS became particularly enthusiastic in its support for Zionism’s transfer agreement.

SS officer Leopold von Mildenstein and Zionist Federation official Kurt Tuchler and their wives toured Palestine together for six months to assess Zionist development there. Based on his firsthand observations, von Mildenstein wrote a series of twelve illustrated articles for the important Berlin daily Der Angriff that appeared in late 1934 under the heading "A Nazi Travels to Palestine," praising the success of the transfer agreement. The publishers of Der Angriff issued a special medal, with a swastika on one side and a Star of David on the other, to commemorate the joint SS-Zionist visit. A few months after the articles appeared, von Mildenstein was promoted to head the Jewish affairs department of the SS security service in order to support Zionist migration and development more effectively. Between 1933 and 1941, some 60,000 of Germany’s wealthiest, best-educated Jews (or about 10% of Germany's 1933 Jewish population) emigrated to Palestine through the Ha'avara and other German-Zionist arrangements. (These German Jews made up about 15% of Palestine's 1939 Jewish population.) The total amount transferred from Germany to Palestine through the Ha'avara between August 1933 and the end of 1939 was 8.1 million pounds or 139.57 million German marks (then equivalent to more than $40 million, but the equivalent of $516 million in 2002 dollars). This amount included 33.9 million German marks ($13.8 million) provided by the Reichsbank in connection with the Agreement.

Several major industrial enterprises were built with the capital from Germany, including the Mekoroth waterworks and the Lodzia textile firm. The influx of Ha'avara goods and capital produced an economic explosion in Jewish Palestine. Having learned from its collaboration with Hitler’s Germany, Israel’s ruling elite—now interned in the Likud Party—have made the same deal with the United States to the tune of $90 billion of military aid since 1948, which has been spent in the United States to bolster the military-industrial complex. The continuing colonial expansion of Israel, turned into the United States "Fort Apache" of the Middle East, is recorded in the deaths and sufferings of the Jewish and Palestine peoples.

Quoted from Wikipedia under "Eichmann":

"By 1945, Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler had ordered Jewish extermination to be halted and evidence of the Final Solution to be destroyed. Eichmann was appalled by Himmlers turnabout, and continued his work in Hungary AGAINST official orders."

To LEO and To Un: DHIMMI

The Palestinian resistance has mass demonstrations and marches against the invasion, throws stones at the Israeli tanks, armaments and the Israeli armed forces, uses hand carried bombs and hand made rockets against the Israelis with the purpose of striking against the Israeli nation, the people of the nation that have invaded your country, ravaged its cities towns and hamlets, brought death, starvation and suffering to your people, displaced your country's population, absorbed your homes, farms, private property to their own purposes and to let them know that so long as they carry out the invasion, occupation and absorption of your country they will be bombed, they will not live in peace, they will not enjoy the fruits of their genocidal crimes.

IN RESPONSE TO:

The Jewish Zionist led, Christian Zionist supported Israeli government is bombing, strafing, shooting the people of Palestine using cluster bombs, depleted uranium coated bombs and shells, white phosphorous bombs fired from F-16 supersonic jet planes, from helicopter gunships, from remote operated, unmanned drone airplanes and from huge Abrams tanks; using behemoth bulldozers supplied by Caterpillar to demolish more than a thousand Palestinian homes and eradicate hundreds of whole villages and towns; crush thousands of hectares of decades old olive and orange orchids; they fly their supersonic jets low over the Palestinian population and break the sound barrier to create the sonic boom that has deafened hundreds of vulnerable Palestinian children; they are building ghetto style armed Jewish settlements all over the territory of the West Bank sector of Palestine on the high ground and hilltops; they restrict the water, the electricity, the medical care, the sewage, the education, the employment, the travel, the communications and every facet of the lives of the people of Palestine; they make targeted assassinations of the selected and elected representatives chosen by the people of Palestine killing dozens of other people in the process; they have confiscated court, land and title records that confirm the property rights of the people of Palestine; they are building a wall that recreates their ghetto existence armed to the teeth with nuclear bombs and chemical and biological weapons: they have driven millions of the people of Palestine off of the land of their forebears, they hold thousands of Palestinians, not only men but also women and children in prison many of whom are tortured and others are killed and buried in numbered graves at obscure graveyards in the process of invading, occupying,absorbing the Palestine beyond the internationally recognized borders for the purpose of creating the Eretz Israel described in the narratives of that book of Judean short stories that has become known as the bible.

It's the hypocrisy I can't stand
I work in Hollywood and I can't stand the hypocrisy. I've had several Jewish people say to my face that they wish I were Jewish because I could get more work.

If this were said in any other industry (Apple, let's say), there would be such a 'moral outrage' like the world has never seen. Yet, Hollywood, Wall Street, the Media, Publishing, etc can get away with this overt Jewish racism?

I love all people and would NEVER single out my race to the detriment of others. This is why Jewish people are not well-liked in the world.

However, as a Christian, I believe God still has a plan for them although I do not support Israel at all. I'm not cursing Israel and I pray the Lord will bring his chosen people to Christ.
