I delve into territory that is marked taboo and could be misconstrued as antisemitism, for example considering the issue of details of the Holocaust and specifically whether the use of possible excesses in the standard account that is used for population control by Zionist leaders. This is not because I hate the Jews. Actually I like many Jewish people, consider Kafka to be one of the greatest of the writers in history, my childhood idol was Richard Feynman, many of my teachers were and are Jewish. But I seek to understand truth, and feel that I exist and live to fix the world in ways that I can understand. I am familiar with long historical suffering of Jews in Europe of persecution and I am familiar with the standard account of the Holocaust. I am disturbed by the sense that I get from the discourse that suggests that the experience of Holocaust is a sufficient weight to justify enormous suffering sustained by the Palestinians at least since the occupation from 1968 but longer oppression going back to 1947-8. I am glad that so many good-hearted Jewish people have begun considering the suffering of Palestinians as well as the need to find a genuine solution to the conflict. I believe it when I say we are not Jews or Muslims or Christians but human beings and we need to find a path to a better world generally. I am open about my opposition to Zionism and this opposition is more generally against all nationalisms so there is nothing specifically anti-Jewish about it. In fact my position that Mossad did 9/11 is not about Jewish people per se either but based on my analysis that–similarly to how national actors engage in activities for increase in power and influence–this was a strategic decision. I despise all sorts of racially based hatred, having been the victim of numerous ugly encounters since 9/11 in America for being dark-skinned in America; I would not want the same to happen to anyone in the world. I don’t support Israel at all, in its concept and its historical decisions regarding the native Palestinians and fully support the idea of a one-state democratic solution with equal rights for all.
In geopolitical intrigue the humanitarian considerations have always been secondary and other issues such as power and wealth had been primary. I am rational enough to understand this and try to take the Brzezinskian sort of chess view sometimes. I consider it a masterful slip of Israel to conflate Judaism and political Zionism (especially for the ordinary people in the west) which allows them to undertake cold geopolitical actions with the aversion to antisemitism that people have for excellent reasons human and historical. I am sympathetic to the aversion myself. I have no wish to mistreat or persecute anyone, gentile or Jew or to denigrate anyone. Dignity is a human right. I believe it is a strategy of political Zionism to crush the natives of Palestine (if the late Benzion Netanyahu’s horrific views about Arabs is anything to go by) with extreme prejudice. This is not how Jews I have met are in America; this is not how Americans I have met are generally. There is now quite a bit of direct analysis of racism in Israel by TRNN and others.
