The Jewish Lobby, which is in the habit of designating people critical of the Zionazi state or Zionism – as “Jew-hater”, “Anti-Semite” or down-right “Hitler”, “Nazis” – got angry at the protestors at last week town hall forums – for comparing US president Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and Congressional Democrats to Nazis. (Obama’s picture on the left from Israeli press – calling him “Anti-Semite” and “Jew-hater”).
Abraham Foxman, the president of Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and outspoken critic of Christian Bible issued a statement: “Americans should be able to disagree on the issues without coloring it with Nazi imagery and comparison to Hitler. There is not where the debate should be at all.” Interestingly, this dude did not have problem calling Saddam Hussein, Dr. Ahmadinejad, Jewish professor William Robinson, and even Mel Gibson’s father “Hitler” in the past.
ADL has long promoted itself as champion of civil rights – while in fact ADL is a Jewish lobby group supporting Israeli interests over America’s national interests – and has been involved in criminal activities to achieve that goal.
Many historians, Jewish and non-Jewish, have written that the majority of German Jews and Zionist terrorist groups were pro-Hitler. Lenni Brenner, a Zionist historian, for example, writing for CounterPunch (December 23, 2002) under the heading 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis, wrote: “During the World War, Zionism showed its real meaning: for the sake of its ambitions, it sacrificed the blood of millions of Jews…….. Zionist factions competed for the honor of allying to Hitler. By 1940-41, the ‘Stern Gang’, among them Yitzhak Shamir, later prime minister of Israel, presented the Nazis with the ‘Fundamental Features of the Proposal of National Military Organization (NMO) in Palestine (Irgun Zval Leumi) – concerning the solution of the ‘Jewish Question’ in Europe and the participation of NMO in the war on the side of Germany….”
The Simon Wiesenthal Center defines anti-Semitism to include: “The demonization of Israel, or vilification of Israeli leaders, sometimes through comparisons with Nazi leaders, and through the use of Nazi symbols to caricature them, indicates an anti-Semitic bias.” Since Barack Obama is not an Israeli leader, therefore, his enemies cannot call him Adolf Hitler.
I would like to end this post by a courageous Christian, Archbishop Tutu of South Africa, who was quoted by Israeli daily Ha’aretz (April 29, 2002) as saying in his address at a conference in Boston: “I’ve been deeply distressed in my visit to the Holy Land; it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa … I have seen the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about … I say why are our memories so short? Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the collective punishment, the home demolitions, in their own history so soon? … The apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists. Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Pinochet, Milosevic, and Idi Amin were all powerful, but in the end they bit the dust. Injustice and oppression will never prevail….. People are scared in this country (in the US), to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful – very powerful….You know as well as I do that, somehow, the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal in the US and to criticize it is to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic, as if Palestinians were not Semitic…..”
