Kosher Aristotle and the Shoa Survivor by Gilad Atzmon

by Gilad Atzmon
Gilad Atzmon (Hebrew: גלעד עצמון‎, born June 9, 1963) is a jazz musician, author and anti-Zionist activist who was born in Israel and currently lives in London.
"Anti-Semite is an empty signifier, no one actually can be an Anti-Semite and this includes me of course. In short, you are either a racist - which I am not - or have an ideological disagreement with Zionism... which I have."
He was born a secular Israeli Jew in Tel Aviv, and trained at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His service in the Israeli military convinced him Israel had become a militarized state controlled by religious extremists. In 1994, Atzmon emigrated from Israel to London, where he studied philosophy. Atzmon is an anti-Zionist who critiques Jewish identity issues and supports the Palestinian Right of Return as well as the establishment of a single state in Israel/Palestine. He is a signatory to the "Palestinians are the Priority Petition" which states “full and unconditional support of the Palestinian people is a condition sine qua non for activists to adopt.

Here is a glimpse into the surreal world of Judeo-ethics. It is also an exceptional example of lame Jewish logic.

The French Jewish ‘philosopher’ Bernard-Henri Lévy is convinced that Roman Polanski should be freed from jail. Polanski was recently arrested in Switzerland for having unlawful sex with a 13-year-oldgirl in 1977. Lévy thinks that Polanski should evade justice, you want to know why? Easy, because he is a ‘Holocaust survivor’.

Here is an extract from Lévy’s celebrity petition (1):

“Seventy-six years old, a survivor of Nazism and of Stalinist persecutions in Poland, Roman Polanski risks spending the rest of his life in jail for deeds which would be beyond the statute-of-limitations in Europe.”

Following Bernard-Henri Lévy’s reasoning, survivors are beyond justice. They should never be jailed for the ‘rest of their life’, not even for unlawful sex with a minor. This sickening and morbid logic explains Israeli barbarism and Jewish collective support of Israeli war crimes. At the end of the day, too many Jews tend to regard themselves as a collective of survivors. Accordingly, in their eyes, they are indeed beyond the law.

I use this opportunity to call the artists who were foolish enough (2) to sign this unethical petition to follow actress, Emma Thompson and withdraw their names immediately. Being a Holocaust survivor doesn’t
buy a legitimacy for unlawful conduct: neither rape nor genocide.
