Jewish Question: The “Cock-fighting” continues…

“The Arab problem can be considered essentially a part of the “The Jewish Problem”, just as the “Jewish Problem” was basically a problem of Christianity,” – Professor Akiva Ernst Simon, quoted in ‘Unease in Zion’, by Ben Ezer.

“Jews are an insult to Christianity. They’re nothing more than voluntary strangers….If Syria and Palestine are important for the British Empire, and if this geographical area needs capital and population, the Jews can give it both. England has a special interests in promoting such restoration or transfer. It must foster the nationality of the Jews and aid them,” Anthony Ashley Cooper (1801-1885), the Earl of Salisbury, quoted by Sokolow in ‘History of Zionism’.

I love to see the Jewish mainstream media kicking each other to prove who is more loyal to a foreign country (Israel), Obama, conservative Jews or the liberal Jews in America. The competition was started by Norman Podhoretz’s opinion  in The Wall Street Journal, entitled Why Are Jews Liberals?, in which he called Obama a “False Messiah” (an old Talmudic title given to Jesus) because even though got elected ridding on “78% of the Jewish votes (he received 95% Afro-American votes followed by 53% votes from the Christian majority plus the religious minorites – meaning the US Muslim voters did not go for their so-called ‘Muslim brother’!) – mainly because the US Jewish voters found Obama more pro-Israel than his opponent McCain.” According to Podhoretz, they were fooled because McCain has a “long history of sympathy for Israel while Obama’s history consisted of his association with outright enemies of the Jewish state like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and the historian Rashid Khalidi”.

The Jewish think tank, Huffington Post, published Jonathan Weiler’s response to Podhoretz on September 12, under the title “Norman Podhoretz’s Jewish Question” – and tried to prove that the so-called “American Liberal Jews” are not against State of Israel – which is true beecause most of them only dislike Zionist regime’s Zionazi policies againgst native Palestinians. However, they see no problem with the occupation of Arab Palestine by the western Jews. Jonathan also assures Podhoretz and the other pro-Israel paranoid Zionist Jews that president Obama could be more Jewish than the Zionist Jews when it comes to Israeli interests. In his views, Obama administration is trying to bring Israel out of isolation and gurantee its security for the future Jewish generations in the occupied land.

On September 15 – Jewish media’s big-mouth, JTA, published Ami Eden’s two-cents worth comments under the title “Podhoretz’s Jewish question” – supporting Jonathan Weiler’s views.

The Jewish Commentary magazine too had something to put into the frying pan being cooked by its former editor Norman Podhoretz.

Norman Podhoretz’s interview by Deborah Solomon was published in The New York Times on September 2, 2009. On September 8, 2009 – Leon Wieseltier in his Book Review blasted the critics of Norman Podhoretz’s book ‘Why Are Jews Liberal?’. Dubya Bush awarded Norman Podhoretz with “Presidential Medal of Freedom” on June 23, 2004.

Jewish Tablet magazine interviewed a bunch of ‘Jewish intellectuals’ on Norman Podhoretz’s book.

Richard Silverstein in the Seattle Times editorial (September 13, 2009) wrote that “many Americans Jews support president Obama’s proposed settlement freeze. However, he spilled the ‘Zionist con deal” – saying that Palestinians in return would have to recognize pre-1967 Zionist occupation of Palestine along with the rest of Arab League members, abandon resistance and accept “prohibition against fielding an army!!”

The “Jewish Question” just like “anti-Semitism” and “Holocaust” – are part European history. West’s “Jewish Problem” began when a large number of Khazarian Turk Jewish communities immigrated to Europe during the 10th and 11th century. All these terms were alient to the Muslim world until WW I. Enzo Traverso in his book ‘The Marxists and the Jewish Question: The History of a Debate, 1843-1943, mentions that Karl Marx, Karl Kautsky, Leon Trostky, Ber Borokhov, Abram Leon, and many other communist and socialist Jewish intellectuals blamed fellow Jews for the “Jewish Question”. However, the author believe the problems the Jews in the labour-class faced – became the breeding ground for Zionism.

Unlike Europen Christians, who have the history of expelling their Jewish communities from every European land – Muslims have never considered Jewish communities living within Muslims countries as such a threat. This Muslim tolerance toward Jews is well ilustrated by Yahia Effendi, an Arab friend of David Ben Gurion, who was dtained by the Turks as a Zionist agitator, in 1915. When Ben Gurion told his Arab friend the reason of his arrest – Effendi told him: “As your friend – I’m sorry. As an Arab – !’m glad.” (‘Unease in Zion’)

Contary to that the Zionist Jews not only have problem with Muslims living inside occupied Palestine but with the entire 1.7 billion world Muslim population. For example, the spiritual leader of Israel’s political Shas Party, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who in April 2001 – called for the  annihilation of Arabs: “It is forbidden to be merciful to them. You must send missiles to them and inhilate them. They are evil and damnable.”

The Zionist anomaly was described very well in a short poem scribed by a frustrated Israeli Jew on the wall of the men’s room at the Hebrew University:

“Sephardim to Spain,

Ashkenazin to Europe,

Arabs to the desert,

Let’s return the country to G-d,

He’s given us enough trouble by promising it to everyone” – cited in Viewpoint, July 1973.

After several pleas from the leaders of Jewish Surf (slave) communities in Spain – the Governor of Muslim North Africa sent one of his generals, Tariq ibn Ziyad with a force of 9,000 soldiers, who crossed the Strait between Morocco and Spain and landed near a rock in June 711 CE – which was later named after him – ‘Jabal al-Tariq’ or ‘Gibralter’. Within next three years – he conquered most of Spain – and ushered the “Jewish Golden Age (term used by the Jewish Orientalist Dr. Bernard Lewis). For the next eight centuries – Jews became the elites of the country.

Since then, Muslim rulers in Spain, Baghdad, Istanbul and Tehran – have the history of treating their Jewish subjects better than the Christian subjects. In 1186 CE – When Sultan Salahuddin recaptured Jerusalem from the Franks – he invited a few dozen Jewish families from Syria to settle in the city. During tne Nazi rule – Turkish ambassador issued 100,000 visas to German Jews to escape the possible annihilation.
