Why the Russians are Lying on Ukraine

Moscow is infamous for its worldwide disinformation campaigns. Not only was it Czarist Russian intelligence which devised the infamous forgery of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” and Soviet intelligence (or even Josef Stalin himself) which coined the neologism “dezinformatsiya”. The KGB through Operation SIG is also also the origin of most contemporary Anti-Semitism,Continue reading “Why the Russians are Lying on Ukraine”

It’s Anti-Semitism Stupid!

What is the problem with Iran? Is it Islam? No, there are dozens of sovereign Muslim nations that are responsible members of the international community. Is it totalitarianism? Well, totalitarianism does not in of itself necessarily make a country externally aggressive. Is it imperialism? No, imperialism is seldom as malign as the Iranian version. TheContinue reading “It’s Anti-Semitism Stupid!”

Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy

Ayatollah Khomeini introduced a governing principle according to which Iranian national interests take precedence over sharia. This may seem surprising for an Islamist theocratic regime but can be observed in Iranian foreign policy for various parts of the world. Iran is completely silent on China’s Han colonization of Xinjiang and totalitarian policies of coerced assimilationContinue reading “Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy”

Europe: Tolerance Ends Where Islamization Begins

Western Europe is to Americans a progressive utopia, it has advanced welfare states, LGBT protections and advanced gender equality. Yet Western Europe suffers from crime-ridden Muslim urban enclaves infested with Islamization and honor culture where European tolerance ends. Jews and LGBTI people cannot live there and Islamization and honor culture is enforced on women andContinue reading “Europe: Tolerance Ends Where Islamization Begins”

China’s Planned Conquests

China is not only expansionist in an economic sense. Densely populated China is bordered by thinly populated vast territories rich in natural resources to its west and north which are completely irresistible to Han China. China is a highly sophisticated state which has learned the lesson of historical empires and Beijing knows the dangers ofContinue reading “China’s Planned Conquests”

Inside the Mind of Vladimir Putin

There has been a wide range of attempts to pathologize Russian president Vladimir Putin to explain the Ukraine war. It is surprising that otherwise rational and highly educated observers assume that the Russian system suddenly operates without an elaborate strategy. Putin’s Russia has always been similar in its geostrategic behavior to the former Soviet Union,Continue reading “Inside the Mind of Vladimir Putin”

The World from the Perspective of Beijing

Beijing is in the phase of building itself up as a superpower economically, politically, militarily and technologically. How does Beijing relate to Washington? China is not really hostile towards America but is determined to overtake the United States as the only superpower. China has not yet reached the phase of territorial expansion and has noContinue reading “The World from the Perspective of Beijing”

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”

The Approaching Apocalypse

Khomeinism is different from all other forms of Islamism in that it constitutes an apocalyptic death cult. No other sect of Islamism believes that the end of days is close in time. However, Khomeinism has no fixed date for the apocalypse which is somewhat flexible in time. The general understanding is that eschatological time wasContinue reading “The Approaching Apocalypse”

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”

It is Anti-Semitic to Claim that Jews are a Racial Group

Apartheid libels against Israel are based upon the idea that the Jewish people are a racial group. This is peculiar since Anti-Zionists also deny that Ashkenazi Jews are of Levantine origin. Apartheid according to international legal definitions is based upon one racial group institutionally oppressing one or more racial groups. But how can one claimContinue reading “It is Anti-Semitic to Claim that Jews are a Racial Group”

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”

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”

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”

Russia Deters America in Ukraine

Why is America not admitting Ukraine to NATO and putting an end to the threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine? The US should militarily deter Russia from invading Ukraine yet it is the US that has ended up deterred by Russia. The Biden administration wields the threat of economic sanctions against Russia despite PresidentContinue reading “Russia Deters America in Ukraine”

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”

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”

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”

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”

Jews must Reappropriate Intersectionality

Zionism was once championed by the political left in the West when Israel had a democratic socialist economy dominated by collectives, cooperatives and union-owned industries. Israel has since 1977 left socialism in eventually becoming the most high tech economy in the world with the Israeli high tech sector accounting for 40% of Israeli exports. YetContinue reading “Jews must Reappropriate Intersectionality”

Iran’s Best Asset

The complexity involved in understanding the Khomeinist regime tends to lead to benevolent caricatures of the regime in severely underestimating the malevolence of Iran’s intentions. Intelligence agencies generally assume that Iran is rational without taking into account how irrational factors (Khomeinist theology, Anti-Semitism and Middle Eastern political culture) influence Iranian decision making processes. As theContinue reading “Iran’s Best Asset”

Apocalyptic Iran

Iran’s main designated adversaries are the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The notion of the United States as an implacable enemy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is based on Islamist Anti-Semitic conspiracy theory according to which the US is the center of the “Jewish conspiracy” to destroy Islam. The notion of Jews andContinue reading “Apocalyptic Iran”

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”

Why has Israeli Intelligence been Wrong on Iran?

The Israeli intelligence community used to claim that Iran eventually would return to the JCPOA and now they assume that Iran is interested in an interim agreement that would freeze uranium enrichment in return for some sanctions relief. It appears that the Israeli intelligence community has not learned from its own mistakes.  Iran has twoContinue reading “Why has Israeli Intelligence been Wrong on Iran?”

Khomeinists are the Most Dangerous Totalitarians so Far

There have been many dangerous totalitarians in modern history. The Nazis were the most dangerous Fascists and the Khmer Rogue were the most dangerous Communists. However, the Khomeinists are the most dangerous totalitarians so far, not because of what they have done but because of what they intend to do. 1) All existing nuclear weaponsContinue reading “Khomeinists are the Most Dangerous Totalitarians so Far”

America is at War with Conspiratorial Anti-Semitism

On December 11, 1941 did Nazi Germany declare war on America. Conspiratorial Anti-Semitism was at the very core of Nazi ideology and Berlin’s decision to declare war on America despite Germany having no border with and not being on the same continent as the United States was no doubt in part motivated by conspiratorial Anti-Semitism.Continue reading “America is at War with Conspiratorial Anti-Semitism”

The Trope of Racial Purity in Anti-Zionism

Anti-Zionists claim that Ashkenazi Jews are racially pure “Whites” with no Middle Eastern origin. This is contrary to genetic science which has documented Ashkenazis to be descended from Middle Eastern men and Italian women. But facts are generally not of concern to Anti-Zionists who never hesitate to make contrafactual claims.  It happens to be thatContinue reading “The Trope of Racial Purity in Anti-Zionism”

Is Islam Incompatible with Democracy?

After the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States did the George W. Bush administration launch a global campaign to promote democratization and liberalization in Islamdom. Many have later asked whether this was a mistaken policy as it was clearly the Bush administration’s efforts that ushered in the Arab spring a full decade later.Continue reading “Is Islam Incompatible with Democracy?”

What about Genetics?

The rediscovery of Median Judaism and Median Jewry is a watershed event in Jewish history. However, members of denominations of core Median Judaism are primarily descended from ancient converts to Median Judaism and not from Israelites although they surely have some Israelite ancestry as well. But does genetics matter and does it still count asContinue reading “What about Genetics?”

Office for the Protection of the Constitution

Germany’s “Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution” (BfV) and its state affiliates, one in each of Germany’s federal states are internationally unique but it is in fact a scandal that not every liberal democracy has its own Office for the Protection of the Constitution. The BfV is a domestic intelligence agency tasked withContinue reading “Office for the Protection of the Constitution”
