Genocide Begins with Words

Genocides are discursive phenomena in the sense that they begin with words and end in bloodshed. The war on Israel has always been about exterminating the Jews although that goal is usually not explicitly spelled out. How is that so? There is a consensus in Palestinian society that the Jews will have to be completelyContinue reading “Genocide Begins with Words”

Inside Iran’s Expansionist Mindset

Twelver Shia theology prohibits offensive war but Khomeinists believe it allows terrorism which it peculiarly construes as defensive, so-called “resistance”. Khomeinist Iran has so far engaged in regional expansionism through proxies, i.e. Shiite militias. Iran also maintains a close relationship with the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood everywhere but in Syria, which is also expressed in Iran’sContinue reading “Inside Iran’s Expansionist Mindset”

Pretexts for Terrorism

Anti-Zionism is not merely as its etymology indicates opposed to the Zionist movement, it seeks the destruction of the restored indigenous Jewish nation state and its usually unstated agenda is the annihilation of 7 million Israeli Jews. In addition to all that Anti-Zionists maintain all kinds of pretexts such as claiming that today’s Flag paradeContinue reading “Pretexts for Terrorism”

It’s the Consensus Stupid!

There is much international hope pinned to a future successor to Mahmoud Abbas making peace with Israel. However, to personalize this issue, to think that the problem of Palestinian rejectionism is limited to first Yasser Arafat and then Mahmoud Abbas is myopic at best. Palestinian society is thoroughly rejectionist. The Palestinian consensus states that aContinue reading “It’s the Consensus Stupid!”

Despite Bravado Iran Fears Israel

In February 2022 Israel deployed six Israeli drones to successfully destroy hundreds of Iranian drones. It was not until now that Iran retaliated, by striking a Mossad training facility in Erbil, the capital of the KRI (Kurdistan Region of Iraq) with missiles launched from Iranian territory. This obviously represents a drastic escalation but it isContinue reading “Despite Bravado Iran Fears Israel”

The US Cannot Guarantee that an Anti-Semite Won’t be Elected President

The US is pressuring Israel to join the ill-advised sanctions regime against Russia which does not help Ukraine one iota and makes a diplomatic resolution more difficult. Israel is not a banana republic and has its own independent national interests. If this was an interest of secondary or tertiary importance then Israel would surely relentContinue reading “The US Cannot Guarantee that an Anti-Semite Won’t be Elected President”

What do the Palestinians Want?

Palestinians of course are diverse and not all Palestinians are the same but we should nevertheless ask ourselves what the Palestinians want based on analyzing Palestinian media, Palestinian education, Palestinian politics, Palestinian opinion polls and Palestinian historiography.  Do the Palestinians want a Palestinian state alongside Israel? The Palestinian movement has rejected many diplomatic offers forContinue reading “What do the Palestinians Want?”

Israel Too Wants to Survive

Last year an Anti-Semite was elected president of Chile. The same thing could happen in the United States. Gone are the days when it was assured that it would always be a moderate who would be elected president of the United States. Support for Israel is declining dangerously among young Americans, including among young RepublicansContinue reading “Israel Too Wants to Survive”

The Strategy of Mansour Abbas

The Islamist Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Egyptian school teacher Hassan al-Banna to establish a worldwide caliphate run under an Islamist version of sharia law. The global Muslim Brotherhood has three pillars. 1) The original underground fraternal organization as organized into national branches. 2) The front organizations including NGOs, mosques and political partiesContinue reading “The Strategy of Mansour Abbas”

It’s Theology Stupid

The dominant paradigm in Middle Eastern studies is so-called “Postcolonialism”, a particular worldview which ironically privileges the perspectives of Islamist imperialists and Arabist colonialist over their indigenous victims. Postcolonialism is a form of Post-Marxism rooted in the doctrine of historical materialism which consistently plays down the influence of religion on politics. Yet the major civilizationsContinue reading “It’s Theology Stupid”

China or Russia cannot Substitute America’s Role in Islamdom

Why did the Biden administration discontinue the Trump administration policy of intending to devolve most of America’s superpower duties in Islamdom to Israel? There is only one answer: Suspicion that Israel will realign with China. The US nightmare scenario is that Washington would hand over most of its superpower duties in Islamdom to Jerusalem andContinue reading “China or Russia cannot Substitute America’s Role in Islamdom”

Take Anti-Zionism Seriously

There is a fundamental problem with two-state messianism and that is that it does not take the Anti-Zionism of the Palestinian Authority seriously. Why are Palestinian Authority schools teaching Palestinian children about ostensible “Jewish conspiracies”? Why are they taught that the Jews have no history in Israel? Why are they taught that the destruction ofContinue reading “Take Anti-Zionism Seriously”

The Palestinian Interest

What is the Palestinian interest? There are two perspectives to this. The first perspective assumes that the Palestinian interest lies in fighting the Jewish state until the entire Jewish population in accordance with the Palestinian consensus has been “removed” from the land, i.e. exterminated since there is nowhere to deport the Jews. Palestinians have beenContinue reading “The Palestinian Interest”

Denazification of Judea and Samaria

Once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel will Israel redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria and the Jordanian royal family will subsequently be extremely pleased to annex Gaza. The arrival of tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants to Israel will put an unprecedented strain on the IsraeliContinue reading “Denazification of Judea and Samaria”

Exposing and Discrediting Operation SIG

How can the vast discursive complex of Operation SIG best be exposed and discredited? If we deconstruct Operation SIG discourses, then we find that there is a consistent pattern of Anti-Jewish discursive discrimination, i.e. discrimination against Jews within discourses, mostly against the Jewish state as the collective Jew. The discourses themselves on the surface superficiallyContinue reading “Exposing and Discrediting Operation SIG”

A New Term Would End Confusion on Anti-Jewish Prejudice

Historians of ideas have documented three historical phases of Anti-Jewish bigotry; these are known as Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism with the term Anti-Semitism also being used in the more general sense as a word for all three phases. This is profoundly confusing since few people are aware that the term ‘Anti-Semitism’ has two meanings. Furthermore,Continue reading “A New Term Would End Confusion on Anti-Jewish Prejudice”

The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate

It has often been claimed that peace requires accepting that there are two competing narratives, one Israeli and one Palestinian, but is this really true? What has not been considered is that the Palestinian narrative is Anti-Zionist, meaning opposed to peace with Israel. Therefore legitimizing the Palestinian narrative as an obstacle to peace makes peaceContinue reading “The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate”

Are Muslims Victims?

There are today frequent claims that Muslims are victims. But is this true and if so to what degree and who are their victimizers? Muslims generally suffer informal discrimination as immigrants and descendants of immigants in Western European countries in both housing and employment. But aside from that, Muslims are certainly not victims of non-Muslims.Continue reading “Are Muslims Victims?”

The Victims of Civilization

Indigenous nations are victims of civilizations, not just one civilization but civilizations generally. This is obfuscated by Postcolonialism which epistemologically privileges Islamist imperialists and Arab colonialists over their victims, including the Jews and other indigenous nations of the MENA region. Colonialism and imperialism are not exclusively Western phenomenons but are inherent to civilization generally. PostcolonialismContinue reading “The Victims of Civilization”

Erasing Victimization of Jews

The reappearance of the Nazi notion of the Jews as “racial oppressors” who are “racially alien to the land” where they live made its comeback through Postcolonialism and has of course already for decades been part of the curriculum at schools of journalism. What we see in the media is almost complete erasure of victimizationContinue reading “Erasing Victimization of Jews”

Destroying the Jews with Pseudoscience

Nazism was based on pseudoscience in preparing for and carrying out the Holocaust. Leftwing Anti-Zionism is entirely based on the KGB project of Operation SIG with its deliberate and systematic Anti-Jewish discrimination within propaganda discourses. This is also true of Postcolonialism which was founded with the publishing of Edward Said’s Anti-Semitic book “Orientalism” which despiteContinue reading “Destroying the Jews with Pseudoscience”

Pro-Israel Advocates Need to be Trained in Deconstruction

Operation SIG as founded by the KGB and until today managed by Palestinian intelligence involves disseminating thinly disguised Anti-Semitism masquerading as “criticism”. The method is to disguise the Anti-Semitism as implicit Anti-Semitic premises embedded in seemingly innocent-looking discourses pretending to be universal but are actually deliberately devised to be discriminatory against the Jews. It isContinue reading “Pro-Israel Advocates Need to be Trained in Deconstruction”

Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open

There has been tremendous mistrust between the Biden administration and the Israeli government on account of Israel’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis China and America’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis Iran. Israel now understands that there will be no nuclear deal with Iran because Tehran has no interest in such an agreement. The US and Israel are jointly trainingContinue reading “Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open”

Subconscious Racism is a Strategic Problem for Israel

Operation SIG is more active than ever worldwide although now managed by PA intelligence rather than by the KGB which founded Operation SIG. The propaganda discourses of Operation SIG are particularly insidious considering their reliance on subconscious racism against Jews and conscious, yet false universalism since it is based on deliberate racist discrimination within discourses,Continue reading “Subconscious Racism is a Strategic Problem for Israel”

Why the International Objections do not Hold Water

What are the counterarguments to Israel redeeming and enfranchising the entire Judea and Samaria after Israel has received a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants and for Jordan to subsequently annex Gaza? “It will not resolve the question of descendants of ex-refugees.” Yes it will not, but that is irresoluble since no Arab interlocutor willContinue reading “Why the International Objections do not Hold Water”

Is America Planning to Disengage from Islamdom?

Middle Eastern governments are convinced that the Biden administration is intent on continuing the Trump administration policy of disengagement from Islamdom, yet the US government denies this. Who should we believe? Assuming that the governments of the region are correct in their unanimous assessment of US intentions, a plausible explanation would then be that theContinue reading “Is America Planning to Disengage from Islamdom?”

The Poisonous Legacy of Operation SIG

The Soviet Union was very early in recognizing Israel on May 17, 1948 in no doubt hoping that then democratic socialist Israel would align with the Communist Soviet Union. However, the Labor-led government of Israel prioritized relations with fellow liberal democracies. The Soviet Union became officially Anti-Semitic in propagating the conspiracy theory that the UnitedContinue reading “The Poisonous Legacy of Operation SIG”

Leftwing Anti-Semitism Must be Delegitimized

One key problem facing the Jewish world is the mainstreaming of leftwing Anti-Semitism. The IHRA definition of Anti-Semitism as widely endorsed by liberal democracies recognizes Anti-Zionism as constituting Anti-Semitism and some Western leaders have condemned BDS, there are however no national leaders outside of Israel speaking out against leftwing Anti-Semitism generally of which BDS ofContinue reading “Leftwing Anti-Semitism Must be Delegitimized”

Master-Slave Morality and Zionism

The case against Israel is based in Master-Slave morality in 1) falsely claiming on the basis of Slave morality that Palestinians are an oppressed group on account of Israeli counterterrorism and other self-defense and 2) wielding Master morality against Jews such as through terrorism and wars of aggression with genocidal intent while accusing Jewish self-defenseContinue reading “Master-Slave Morality and Zionism”

Jewish Critical Theory Will Win Back Progressive Jews to Zionism

Critical theory is an interdisciplinary academic field devoted to studying and exposing how subconscious societal, cultural and discursive structures determine human behavior. Jewish critical theory, i.e. a) exposing and discrediting Anti-Jewish structures in discourse, b) deploying rabbinic discursive modes in all kinds of discourses and c) advocating for indigenous nations everywhere, including in the ArabContinue reading “Jewish Critical Theory Will Win Back Progressive Jews to Zionism”

The Rise of Leftwing Anti-Semitism

We are seeing a dramatic rise in leftwing Anti-Semitism primarily in the United States but also in other countries. It is essential to understand how this happened and what is driving this process. During the Cold War the left was all about economic issues. After socialist economics was discredited was there a shift within theContinue reading “The Rise of Leftwing Anti-Semitism”

The Oslo Mutual Deception

What enabled the Oslo accords? Israeli intelligence with its deep penetration of Palestinian organizations of course was well aware that the PLO adhered to the Phased Plan (1974 Ten point program). Israel agreed to the idea of Palestinian autonomy in Judea/Samaria and Gaza already in the 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty which means that both leftContinue reading “The Oslo Mutual Deception”

Does the PA Want a Palestinian State?

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has continued the Palestinian nationalist tradition of rejecting all peace offers for partition since 1937. The question needs therefore be asked whether the PA is at all interested in establishing a Palestinian state other than one in the place of Israel as called for in the 1964 PLO Palestinian National Covenant?Continue reading “Does the PA Want a Palestinian State?”

Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?

Palestinian nationalism is thoroughly based on Anti-Zionism, the third stage of Anti-Jewish bigotry with the earlier stages being Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism (in the narrow sense). Palestinian nationalism systematically racializes Jews in terms of all three stages of Anti-Semitism in the broader sense. Palestinian nationalism is thus primarily a form of racism and is as suchContinue reading “Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?”

Anti-Semitism and Orientalism

There are three historical phases of Anti-Semitism in the broader sense of the term. These are Anti-Judaism (Roman, Christian and Muslim), Anti-Semitism (in the narrow racializing sense) and Anti-Zionism which is currently the most widespread form of Anti-Semitism and contains a far vaster universe of lies than Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism (in the narrow sense). WhatContinue reading “Anti-Semitism and Orientalism”

The Danger of Messianism

The Jewish nation has a long history of failed messianisms, with usually profoundly tragic consequences for the Jews. The two-state illusion is different from the previous messianist movements in that the false messiah is not a person but an enemy government. The Palestinian Authority is not only Anti-Zionism incarnate but it is the most Anti-SemiticContinue reading “The Danger of Messianism”

What Israel Needs to Tell the International Community

Israeli diplomats need to focus on the promotion of the interests of the Palestinians when explaining the need for Israeli redemption and enfranchisement of the entire Judea and Samaria and the subsequent Jordanian annexation of Gaza. While it is important to explain Israeli and Jordanian interests and how these are crucial to regional stability andContinue reading “What Israel Needs to Tell the International Community”

The Death of Anti-Zionism

What will happen to Anti-Zionism when tens of millions of Median Jewish immigrants arrive in the land of Israel? Israel’s population will triple or quadruple and Israel will redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria while Jordan subsequently will annex Gaza. Israel will annex Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and LebanonContinue reading “The Death of Anti-Zionism”

Zionists Need Embrace Critical Theory

There are three historical phases to Anti-Semitism in the broader sense of the term, these are Anti-Judaism (Roman, Christian and Muslim), Anti-Semitism (in the narrow racializing sense of the word) and Anti-Zionism, the most prominent form of Anti-Jewish prejudice today. Critical theory is an excellent tool for exposing the bigoted nature of Anti-Zionism as aContinue reading “Zionists Need Embrace Critical Theory”

How Long Will it Take before the International Community Recognizes Judea and Samaria as Israeli?

The first step and the present stage for Israeli diplomacy is to seek greater diplomatic understanding that Israel intends to redeem and enfranchise Judea and Samaria once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel. The second step and later stage will be to seek actual recognition of Israeli sovereignty after IsraelContinue reading “How Long Will it Take before the International Community Recognizes Judea and Samaria as Israeli?”

Does King Abdullah II Want to Annex Gaza?

Israel is ready to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel and Jordan will subsequently annex Gaza. Meanwhile, the Jordanian government officially insists that “a two-state solution” in the version that would involve Israel retreating to the indefensible Auschwitz lines, is theContinue reading “Does King Abdullah II Want to Annex Gaza?”

A Two-State Solution is not in Israel’s Interest

It is often claimed that a two-state solution involving an Israeli return to the Auschwitz lines is “inevitable” and “the only solution”. However, this is completely unfeasible for three reasons. 1) There is a consensus in Palestinian society on not agreeing to an end-of-claims final status agreement as that would involve ceding the demand forContinue reading “A Two-State Solution is not in Israel’s Interest”

Jews are a Nation of Color

Racialization of Jews have a long pedigree in the history of Anti-Semitism. Racialization of Jews was practiced in Spain against the Anusim (“Marranos”), Jews who were involuntarily converted to Christianity during the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. Racialization of Jews in Germany became prominent already in the second half of the 19thContinue reading “Jews are a Nation of Color”

Spreading Lies about Jews is Anti-Semitic

What qualifies as Anti-Semitism? There are three historical stages of Anti-Semitism, these are Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism (in the narrow historical sense of the term) and Anti-Zionism. The IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition has been criticized for being too expansive. However, Anti-Jewish lies have never before been so diverse and are mostly about telling lies aboutContinue reading “Spreading Lies about Jews is Anti-Semitic”

The Jews and the Left

Israel relies on bipartisan support in the United States Congress. Of course, the US-Israeli alliance would survive without congressional support since this special relationship is built upon common interests between the two nations. Saudi Arabia does not enjoy support in the US Congress and presidential candidate Joe Biden was intensely critical of Saudi Arabia. YetContinue reading “The Jews and the Left”

Indigenous Construction is not Irrational

The general international perception of the indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria is that it is fundamentally irrational and that demographic trends work against Israel and Zionism. The Israeli calculation was always that demography and time are on Israel’s side and that was and remains no doubt a correct assessment. This estimate has beenContinue reading “Indigenous Construction is not Irrational”

The Case for Jewish Critical Theory

The Jews have always since antiquity been a structurally oppressed group and remain so. There are three historical phases of Anti-Jewish prejudice and those are known to scientists as Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism. However, in common parlance as well as in scientific usage is the term Anti-Semitism used to denote all three stages. There hasContinue reading “The Case for Jewish Critical Theory”

Israel Underestimates Iranian Threat

Israel has a track record of underestimating the nefariousness of Iran’s intentions. Israeli intelligence until recently believed that Tehran was interested in a nuclear agreement with the United States. Until recently did senior Israeli military experts believe that Iran would not order Hezbollah to launch a frontal attack against Israeli cities with 150 000 rocketsContinue reading “Israel Underestimates Iranian Threat”

Why Insist on the Impossible?

The Biden administration is well aware that Mahmoud Abbas is no partner for the much touted two-state solution. Mahmoud Abbas is tactically pragmatic but strategically rigid and his successor will be no less strategically rigid but possibly less pragmatic. The Palestinian Authority insists on flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists and the goal is toContinue reading “Why Insist on the Impossible?”

How Iran Views the US-Israel Relationship

The basic prism through which the Iranian regime views international politics and domestic politics in many countries is that of the ostensible global “Jewish conspiracy” to destroy Islam. Tehran believes that the infamous forgery of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” is a genuine document outlining the Zionist conspiracy to control the world. WhenContinue reading “How Iran Views the US-Israel Relationship”
