- Holocaust studies is an emerging pseudo intellectual,
academic trend. It basically allows rabid Zionists to elevate their discussions
on 'what is really wrong with the goyim' into a university qualification.
I recently learned about the 'Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary
Study of Antisemitism'. I also learned about a similar institute at the
University of London.
- Antisemitism Studies has the potential to be a valuable
field of research if it could, for example, elaborate and scrutinize Jewish
culture and history in an attempt to grasp what it is that evokes anti
Jewish feeling. It could try to establish if there is a Jewish ideological,
political or cultural pattern that may be amended. In fact early Zionists(1)
tried to dwell on the subject. They tried to diagnose the 'cause' of Antisemitsm
so that they might learn why it invariably and repeatedly matured into
host cultures regarding Jews as a parasitic force. Early Zionists insisted
that Aliya would bring about a new productive, ethical and civilized new
Jew. However, contemporary Antisemitism scholars have a very different
agenda in mind. They build their research on the axiom that Jews are categorically
innocent. They then try to understand why the Goyim behave immorally and
- But here is a clear embarrassing catch: considering
humanity is comprised of Goyim, Antisemitism scholars who attempt to grasp
'what is wrong with the Goyim' actually ask 'what is wrong with humanity?'
This is in fact a legitimate question, unless we leave one conspicuous
group out. As things stand, in the new Judeo-centric 'academic' field namely
'Antisemitism studies', a Zionist is there to review the Goy as a pathological
case. This is slightly odd to say the least. It is even peculiar that such
departments exist in Yale and at a London University. However, since academic
institutes thrive on corporate donations and other funding sources, we
can no longer expect the academic world to lead intellectual discourse
or even commit itself to any form of ethical integrity.
- One of the leading scholars of Antisemitim and the Holocaust
is Professor Yehuda Bauer of Jerusalem University and a director at Yad
Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Museum. Prof. Bauer is a world expert in
the hatred and destruction of 'one people,' namely the chosen. I have recently
found this video and I would urge every humanist to watch it. It is a lecture
about the origin of Antisemitism given by Professor Bauer in Hawaii in
- Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqo9HyFMGFI&feature=player_embedded
- (Bauer's talk starts around 16 minutes and 30 seconds)
- Bauer initially comes across as a charming and open minded
person. He even makes some crucial observations. For the first twenty minutes
it is possible to believe that one is witnessing a genuine authentic intellectual.
- 'Antisemitism', says Bauer, is a 'wrong term' there is
no such animal for there 'are no Semites'. For Bauer there are no Semitic
people and he acknowledges that the Jews are not exactly a homogenous racial
group anyway. He agrees that the ideology that was brought to life by Wilhelm
Marr in the late 19th century, is confusing. Antisemitism is nothing but
'anti Jewish' feelings or practice.
- Where does Antisemitism start? Interestingly enough,
Bauer goes back to the Book of Esther(2). He suggests it is an "allegory
of fear of annihilation of the Diaspora Jew". Esther, according to
Bauer, is a tale of Jewish fear of their surrounding environment. "The
origin of anti Jewishness is the fact that Jewish civilization and culture
is different to its surroundings". I myself would take it further
and argue that the Book of Esther is where Jewish Lobbying and Jewish power
matures into a vivid cultural paradigm. The moral of the story is rather
clear. If Jews want to survive, they better infiltrate the corridors of
power. With Esther in mind, AIPAC, Lord Levy and the Labour Friends of
Israel look like an embodiment of a deep Biblical and cultural ideology.
- Yet, Bauer, the exemplary Judeo-centric intellectual,
fails to enlighten us on the specific ways in which Jewish civilization
and culture is different. After all, if Antisemitism is a 'unique' form
of hatred, then Jews must be 'uniquely' different from all the other 'minorities'
that have endured prejudice across the centuries. I would expect an Antisemitism
scholar to elaborate on this crucial issue and suggest some answers. Bauer
fails to do so. The reason is simple. Bauer is a Zionist and Zionism is
a solution for the Diaspora Jews. If you do not want to be different, just
come home and dwell with us on Palestinian stolen land.
- Bauer then moves on and asks: what are the types of
crisis that lead towards Antisemitism? Christian Antisemitism is not too
problematic to grasp. "Christianity had to differentiate itself from
Judaism" says Bauer. However, Christianity is not a major problem.
"Christianity doesn't like Jews, it discriminates against Jews yet
due to its theology, it prevents genocide." In fact, according to
Bauer, the genocidal tendency in Europe emerged with the secularization
of Christian communities. One is left with Christian Antisemitism but a
version lacking the theology that curtails murderous inclinations. Again,
in Bauer's trivial world, the Jews are innocent. It is always the Goyim
who fail morally and ethically.
- Racism wasn't born in 19th century Europe says Bauer,
"there is some evidence of racism in the Iberian Peninsula from the
15thcentury". Someone better remind Bauer that, as far as Judaism
is concerned, he can trace evidence of racism in every religious source
whether it is the Torah or the Talmud.
- "Racism turned against the Jews" says Bauer
"because we are a different race" because we are the "paradigmatic
Other". But then contradicting himself, he also insists on dismantling
the notion of race in general. "There is no such thing as race, humanity
comes from Africa, we are all Africans." Let's for a second agree
with Bauer that race is a "pseudo scientific concept". Yet, the
problem with race is not the attempt to divide the world into racial groups
or trace people's anthropological origins. Race becomes a problematic issue
when racism is introduced. Racism is the belief that one group of people
is better than another. Devastatingly enough Judaism and Zionism are both
saturated with racism. Bauer is right to argue that Jews are not a race,
but Jewish ideology, both secular and religious, is racist and supremacist
to the bone.
- 'The Israeli Palestine conflict, how important is it'?
'Very important' says Bauer. Would a resolution of the Israeli Palestinian
conflict decrease Antisemitism? Yes concludes Bauer, yet, Antisemitism
won't disappear. Bauer is probably correct. According to his philosophy
Antisemitsm is the product of Jewish otherness and this fact may never
change. As long as Jews maintain their chosen tribal identity they will
always preserve their 'difference'.
- Bauer is rather concerned with the "Antisemitism
of the chattering classes, the media, intelligentsia, universities, the
doctors". He contends that we have seen a "sudden rise 'of it'
along with the 2nd Intifada". Obviously, the chances of Bauer winning
an argument in intellectual circles, is rather limited. However, it is
pretty reasonable that rthinkers within the media, intelligentsia and academic
circles would oppose the Jewish state, especially when evidence of Israeli
genocidal barbarism is mounting.
- It takes a few good minutes before Bauer, the proud owner
of a rabid Zionist mind, shows his real colours. 'Is it okay to criticize
Israel'? Yes, for sure says Bauer. The Israeli press are the first to criticize
Israeli politics. Condemnation of Israel is not Antisemitic unless one
describes Israel as a 'Nazi state'. This is exactly where Bauer relinquishes
his last drop of intellectual integrity. Are there any rules that we must
employ when criticising the 'Jewish State'? Is there any intellectual obligation
that we have to take into consideration when referring to a racist Jew-only,
expansionist, murderous state? Surely, the 45% of Europeans who regard
Israel as an exterminatory state do so for a reason. Israel and the Zionists
better learn to take responsibility for their actions. They may then understand
why almost half of the Europeans equate them with Nazis.
- Bauer says political criticism is legitimate yet when
you turn the attack on the people and the state you then shift into "genocidal
territory". The truth of the matter is very simple. Within the Palestinian
and anti Zionist discourse no one I can think of suggests annihilating
any Jews. Many of us argue that the Jewish state doesn't have the right
to exist at the expense of other people. Yet, we do not talk of or suggest
the 'extermination' of anyone. We are talking about a change of political
setting that will mature into a "state of its people". We believe
in equal rights. We believe in the Palestinian right of return. If Jews
want to form a Jew-only state, they should find a 'desert island' to do
so, or even better a different planet.
- How do you fight Antisemitism? "The ADL and the
AJC are doing excellent work", says Bauer. But what about a hypothetical
case of rising Antisemitism in a different territory, for instance the
USSR? Could the ADL influence the Soviet Union? Bauer thinks not but Jews
could make an impact "together with non Jews". Things changed
in the Soviet Union because the USA mounted pressure on the USSR. "The
Jews have to find allies and the allies will come when they understand
that Antisemitism just starts with the Jews".
- In some very simple words Bauer explains the current
Zionist ideology. Jews must find new allies. They must bond with emerging
powers. It is almost amusing that Bauer, an expert on Antisemitism, fails
to see that this is exactly the root cause of resentment to Jewish power.
This endless seeking of influence and domination is exactly where Jews
- Bauer ends his talk with a fierce attack on 'radical
Islam'. "Radical Islam is not just Antisemitic, it is Antisemitic
in a genocidal way." He then reads the famous Hamas Charter (3). He
brings to life the quotes about Jewish Power, world domination and so on.
Some of the quotes are facts. Others sentences are accepted views. Some
ideas are slightly over the top. But there is one thing Bauer fails to
do: provide a single genocidal quote.
- Bizarrely enough Bauer ends his talk saying "since
1982 I have tried to convince the Israeli government to find allies to
fight that thing. Only now things start to happen." In fact Yehuda
Bauer himself proves that the Hamas Charter is a genuine description of
Jewish tribal activism. The 'seeking allies' which Bauer pushes for is
exactly what the Hamas Charter refers to in the following lines:
- "They took advantage of key elements in unfolding
events, and accumulated a huge and influential material wealth which they
put to the service of implementing their (Zionist) dream" (Hamas Charter
- Is not finding 'new allies' a reference to seeking influence
via media and political movements? The Hamas Charter describes it eloquently
- "..take over control of the world media such as
news agencies, the press, publication houses, broadcasting and the like.
[They also used this] wealth to stir revolutions in various parts of the
globe in order to fulfill their interests and pick the fruits." (Hamas
- Considering the lecture was given in 2005, four years
into the 'war against terror', and 2 years into the Iraq war where American
and British soldiers ended up fighting Zionist wars, combating the enemies
of Israel, I think that by now we all have a glimpse of understanding
of what Prof. Bauer refers to when he talks about 'allies'.
- Prof. Yehuda Bauer is an academic adviser to the Israeli
Holocaust Museum Yad Vashem. Maybe, Bauer should reflect on the fact that
the Holocaust Institute he represents, is located on Mt. Herzl on the lands
of the Palestinian village of Ein Karem, 1,400 meters south of the Palestinian
village of Deir Yassin, the scene of a Jewish atrocity against the native
Palestinians. If Bauer contemplates this fact alone he will understand
why as many as 37.4% of Europeans would find it hard to buy an old car
from him, let alone his disingenuous Judeo-centric, pseudo academic ranting.

and they have consolidated their schemes, in order to achieve what they
have achieved. They took advantage of key elements in unfolding events,
and accumulated a huge and influential material wealth which they put to

take over control of the world media such as news agencies, the press,

to stir revolutions in various parts of the globe in order to fulfill their
interests and pick the fruits. They stood behind the French and the Communist
Revolutions and behind most of the revolutions we hear about here and there.
They also used the money to establish clandestine organizations which are
spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies and carry out
Zionist interests. Such organizations are: the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs,
Lions Clubs, B'nai B'rith and the like. All of them are destructive spying
organizations. They also used the money to take over control of the Imperialist
states and made them colonize many countries in order to exploit the wealth
of those countries and spread their corruption therein. As regards local
and world wars, it has come to pass and no one objects, that they stood
behind World War I, so as to wipe out the Islamic Caliphate. They collected
material gains and took control of many sources of wealth. They obtained
the Balfour Declaration and established the League of Nations in order
to rule the world by means of that organization. They also stood behind
World War II, where they collected immense benefits from trading with war
materials and prepared for the establishment of their state. They inspired
the establishment of the United Nations and the Security Council to replace
the League of Nations, in order to rule the world by their intermediary.
