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”

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”

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”

A New Academic Paradigm is Needed for Scholarship on Islamdom

The complex civilization of Islamdom is systematically misunderstood both internally and externally. Academic attempts at understanding the civilization of Islamdom has typically added to the confusion. Both Orientalism and Postcolonialism are distinctly deficient in misunderstanding the dynamically evolving civilization of Islamdom. The critique of Orientalism is well-known but the core of the critique is thatContinue reading “A New Academic Paradigm is Needed for Scholarship on Islamdom”

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 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”
