In these troubled times, with a president who is mindless, we are dangerously close to more destruction. 


As we witness Israel’s endless, disturbing  and hard held belief that security brings peace, it seems that nothing is farther from the truth for it is only peace and tolerance that brings security.


Stand with me to rage against the crimes  committed for so many decades against Palestinians who continue their  brave struggle for their homeland and dignity. Not in my name shall the obscene prisons and the continuous debasement of human rights be allowed to exist.


NO FREEDOM IN THE LAND OF FALSE PROPHETS


I ask, how can the Jewish State find freedom as an occupier?

An occupation has eaten Israel where mosques burn and a faux museum sits on desecrated Muslim tombs.

They call it Museum of Tolerance, I call it museum cleansing, killer of those deemed inferior.

False prophets, destroyer of 800,000 olive and citrus plants.

Collective abuse, fishermen attacked like vermin by Israeli killer boats.

Apartheid! Words we dare not write or speak. Condemned by true believers,

The Zionist story makes one shutter.

I’ve heard the racist words before when Jews were driven from their homes and villified.

Now I hear it all again from a rabbi contender for the Jewish heroes competition.

Asked how Jews should treat their neighbors he said:

“The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way. Destroy the holy sites, kill men, women , children and cattle.”

I remember another time, “No Jews Allowed.” Germany nearly succeeded.

Arabs not allowed, a Zionist story.

No Palestinians to live with dignity for “We” are the chosen people.

It is written in the Old Testament.

It is because I am a Jew and once had a dream of a different Israel that  I speak out against the cruelty bestowed on the Palestinian population and the beauty that was their land and culture.  Oh god how could this have happened?  I so strongly believe that Jews had the moral obligation to not oppress as they were once oppressed. It did not happen.


W H Auden wrote this timely poem.

September 1, 1939

Now I and the public know What all school children learn Those to whom evil is done Do evil in return.”

                                     

GAZA

Israel! You have risen from The ashes of the holocaust To become your own enemy.

Israel! You should have learned so well Man’s inhumanity to man Is hell.

Palestine! We are your brothers and sisters.

May this nightmare end.

Zionism in Israel has replaced Jewish Identity based on spiritual values with one rooted in secular nationalism. But who are the “liberal Zionists?” Just how has the black and white determination of Zionists who wish Israel to survive and non Zionists who do not,  play out as the monster where dissent and work towards a free Palestinian  equates to wanting the destruction of Israel?


Liberal Zionists speak of their fears of delegitimizing Jewish Democracy. What democracy? Please be realistic. A democracy in the midst of apartheid and despair where only Jews have rights? Sorry but this makes me ashamed. Those who deliberately confuse anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism give comfort to the  racist nationalistic Zionist regime.


An anti-Semite used to be a person who disliked Jews. I am not anti-Jew, I am anti-Zionist. The difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism is the difference between dehumanizing Jews because of their religion and reminding  Jews that they share the same humanity as Palestinians.


Zionism has always equated any criticism of Zionism with anti-Semitic racism or worse. It serves as a propaganda purpose of “victimhood”  and pits opponents on the defensive. I counter that. Perhaps many Jews remain trapped in their identification as “Victim?”


Israel requires us to question what the Israeli government is hiding and whether Israel has not delegitimized itself thru decades  of illegal human rights abuses. I believe this destruction has profoundly contributed  to the rise of true anti-Semitism today.  Zionism and Judaism is not the same. 


We have to get over the mindset that anti-Semitism is a “special racism” and that Jews have entire “special suffering.” The Zionists twist and distort in a way that leaves humanity  frozen out of their hearts to create a monster.
