Part I -- Reversal of Values

Up until recently, Jews allied themselves with progressive causes. By progressive I mean causes that seek to improve the human condition: racial and ethnic equality, economic well-being, education and health care for all, and the like. This made (and still makes) perfectly good sense for the Jews. As a religious minority that suffered discrimination and periodic persecution, they could only benefit from the popularization of values inherent in tolerance, egalitarianism and human rights. Such values, reflected in the law, created opportunities for everyone within a safe public space. This was focusing on the "big picture."

This dedication to progressive causes as a part of modern Jewish history is well documented, particularly in the United States. Take for instance the roughly 2,200 articles written on this subject by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA). Through these we learn that after World War II the American Jewish Congress (AJC), among other Jewish organizations, "made common cause with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)." It is also true that the JTA coverage shows that support for the struggle for civil rights in the U.S. was not unanimous among American Jews. Some actually believed that civil rights was not a "Jewish issue." This position ignored the importance of societal values and simply relied on an alliance with the power structure (the old idea of the "court Jew" exercising influence) as a more reliable route to Jewish community welfare). This was disregarding the "big picture." Nonetheless, according to the JTA, "from the late 1940s " and continuing to the mid-1960s, the larger cause of civil rights was absolutely regnant on the American Jewish communal agenda."

Unfortunately, identification with the progressive cause of civil rights, as logical as it was for the Jews, did not last. The turning point came in 1967 and the years immediately following. The "Six Day War" (June 5-10, 1967) was popularly, and uncritically, seen as a near disaster for Israel that miraculously turned into a great victory. Israel expanded out into Gaza and the West Bank and consequently came to rule over millions of additional Palestinians through the imposition of a harsh military regime.

The mood of exhilaration generated by victory in the war seemed to have prevented most American Jews from noticing that the progressive principles of civil and political rights were not extended to the Palestinians. However, many African-American civil rights advocates did notice and made their concerns known to their American Jewish allies. At that point, activist American Jews had to choose between supporting Israel, which was now revealing itself as a discriminatory state, or continuing to advocate for the progressive agenda of civil and human rights.

American Jewish leaders and the organizations they led never really hesitated, for it seemed that blood was thicker than both good sense and good values. They abandoned the progressive cause and threw their support behind an Israel whose racism was increasingly obvious. Most ordinary Jewish people either followed their lead or managed to make their support for Israel an exception while maintaining their progressive orientation on other matters. These folks are now known as PEPs (progressive except for Palestine). Nonetheless, at the organizational level the whole process represented a breathtaking about-face!

Part II -- Progressives become the Enemy

As it became clear in what direction the State of Israel was evolving, those Jews who did stay true to the universal application of causes as human and civil rights reacted. They spoke out against impending apartheid and eventually formed their own organizations which lent support to the Palestinians as victims of ethnic cleansing and other forms of oppression. This in turn caused a furious reaction on the part of Zionists -- those who support a Jewish state in Palestine. Indeed, with the vehemence of someone who sees his adversary as a traitor, the Zionists have condemned as anti-Semites all who would stand against them -- including progressives -- be they Jews or otherwise. The Zionists have gone to great lengths in this regard. For instance, they have dreamt up the category of "self-hating Jews" and have attacked (with the help of the present administration in Washington) international law and international criminal courts that might condemn Israeli behavior. Once it got rolling, this process became hard to stop. Now, a breed of Zionist "intellectuals" has decided that all progressives, past and present, should be examined for the taint of anti-Semitism. For them, the progressive per se has become the enemy of Israel and its Zionist ideology.

So it was that on 11 March 2019 Manfred Gerstenfeld, an Israeli researcher attached to the decidedly right-wing Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies sent out a recruiting notice that began like this: "The academy needs a competent and ambitious historian to document the many instances of progressive perversity throughout the centuries."

Progressive perversity? What can that mean? Well, Gerstenfeld does point fingers: "topics to be examined should include the antisemitism of Erasmus of Rotterdam ... the French Revolution ... Voltaire ... Karl Marx ... and the 2001 World Conference Against Racism, which was an iconic example of progressive perversity." Actually, what Gerstenfeld is seeking is an "ambitious historian" to go on a fishing expedition that might turn up bits and pieces of data that he and his center can then exaggerate into a charge of ubiquitous "anti-Semitism" among progressives.

Indeed, Gerstenfeld goes on to give his own examples of the information he seeks, just so any "competent" historian will know what sort of research he or she is applying for. They consist of de-contextualized quotes which are supposed to be proof of virulent hatred of Jews. For instance, there are snippets of letters taken from a biography of Erasmus, the 16th century humanist, in which he has some disparaging things to say about this or that Jewish person. But what does this really prove? Erasmus was a famous satirist (take a look at his famous work In Praise of Folly) and for every example of a negative opinion of Jews, or of Muslims for that matter, we can find even more remarks disparaging aspects of Christian belief and behavior.

Gerstenfeld plays the same gambit with Voltaire, the 18th century Enlightenment thinker. It is true that Voltaire had some nasty things to say about Jews. He too said nasty things about Christians and Muslims. But then again, Voltaire had even more positive things to say about "tolerance, freedom of speech, and the dangers of religious fundamentalism." The point is that whatever the occasional remarks Erasmus or Voltaire might have made about Jews, their overall aim was to promote a world governed by moderation, fairness and toleration -- a world in which Jews, and others, could thrive. Alas, Gerstenfeld misses, or perhaps chooses to just ignore, this point.

Up till here, Gerstenfeld has disparaged those who can honestly be identified as progressive for their time. But now, as is often the case with ideologues obsessed with their adversary, he begins to slip into the realm of the absurd. Here are two examples.

Gerstenfeld identifies the 1917 Communist Revolution in Russia as a "progressive" event. But really, this is at best a confusion. Whatever might have been the original hopes of the early Russian communist leaders, the end product was the overthrow of an authoritarian regime and its replacement with a totalitarian dictatorship. There is obviously nothing progressive about this. But Gerstenfeld has a hidden agenda and so he lists some of the Jews that Josef Stalin had murdered while insisting that the regime this dictator ran should be labeled progressive -- ergo, yet another instance where progressives prove to be anti-Semitic.

I wish Israel had never happened. I believe it's one of those Wrong Things there's no Right Way to do. Jews were a threat to every backward society they entered because they knew how to do things nobody else even thought of doing. I understand that when they were denied the right to own land, they took to the abstract and became bankers writers doctors.

They educated their children and observed a thoughtful religious regimen that still seems the most intelligent to me. Why they gravitated to that hot strip of contentious desert, and how many of them thought it a good idea bears research. The wailing wall, the bobbing heads of little children learning scripture by rote, all seem so primitive compared to their august positions as statesmen and scientists elsewhere.

What they have elected to do instead is reduce their gene pool, when scriptures suggest they "go FORTH and multiply", which they did for centuries, leaving their genetic footprint in every area of human endeavor from Broadway to Hiroshima. Now, in direct opposition to the dissolution of boundaries and a final, human oneness, they've retreated as the author suggests, to an era they missed, as they were on the fly when all those lines were drawn. Now they can call themselves a country, when countries are passe.

Israel didn't make sense because Hitler was Crazy, and Crazy Never Makes Sense, nor do any consequences it might engender. "War is Uncivilized."-Rev. Jesse Jackson

Neither Hitler nor Goebbels could do a better job of launching a hate piece against Judaism and Isarael than what you've written.

The Jews were exiled out of their land 1949 years ago. Only the Jews seem to be hated for wanting their homeland back.

God will never let it happen again

God had nothing to do with this or any other real estate deal; and if I ever fancy one, it would be a God who smiled; as borders and ephemeral boundaries fade and we admit our ultimate brotherhood, and take care of Goliath, who is on his way. We can thank David for the technology involved, because we can't match its power.

I had the greatest respect for the Jews I married and our able children, grand, and great grand children. I am not Jewish, and I suspect that fact contributes to their overall perfect health. They had nothing to do with plopping a country down on top of another, hostile one. What a plan!


Israel is a political shoehorn, a contrivance in which the Jews were pawns, and since they have had to lower their sights and become mired in tribal litigation of the most backward sort. Now they're just another cantankerous one of them, with a nuclear arsenal nobody questions because it would be suicidal to use it, so it can't be for the locals. However, it sets them apart; as does their relationship with the West.

They can mow Palestinians down with impunity, then react with superior bombs when the resentment inevitably starts, and kill a bunch more.

The EARTH is the PROMISED LAND, and it is sadly in need of care. We are the chosen SPECIES, here to save the planet, and our work is cut out for us.

Thank you for continuing to hold up a candle in a dark time for Jewish history and world history. Agree with much of what Molly Cruz said too - and so eloquently, although I avoid most religions like the burning hot tar they seem to be, in the wrong hands.

Progressives once again are the scapegoats; jailed, murdered, tortured - for wanting a more just and humane world and for calling out the hypocrisy and spin-doctoring used to attack progressives. It's beyond comprehension how any thinking person could get behind Zionism or any other extremest ideology, religion, or "ism" (such as McCarthysim), and not see it for what it is mind control, enslavement, and genocide for the unlucky "losers."

It seems people have lost the ability to have compassion; to stop and think a minute and put themselves in another's shoes and ask, what is this were happening to me, my family, my beloveds, my home? And maybe that is the basic crux of the problem - it's all "I me my" rather than "our."

In many cases of times of attempted revolution, actual revolution, and times of Conservative or even fascist backlashes, a small handful of people can shove a horrible system down the throats of too many others by remaining unified and by being willing to fight to the death to get their way.


The fact is that anywhere from 12 million to 50 million or more Americans know that they had ancestors who were probably Jewish or are from some other semitic group. They let the minority gain their power and lead them by their noses to a trough to drink their cool-aid. When will the misleading and horrid core of the Zionist and FAscist Judaest/Christian network of today finally be forced to drink their cool-aid and leave us to a better world?


Only when someone stands up and tells them NO. Whether you are progressive or conservative, you cannot and should not put up with our status quo.

I did a google search on " David Icke--Zionist World Order," the words printed in this article's image and found this youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmsz2vmbEyg It is entitled "David Icke Feb 22, 2019--The Zionist World Order."

I cannot support everything that David Icke believes, but some of it was very interesting about all of the Zionists connected with Obama's administration. Icke calls them Rothschild Zionists. He included a quote made by Zbigniew Brzezinski in 1970:

"The technotronic era involves the gradual appearances of a more controlled society. Such a society will be dominated by an elite unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subjected to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."

I'm not saying I'm onboard with everything he says, but David Icke has put out a lot of very interesting stuff. Some of it touches a few nerves of the elite. For that reason, he is another one that is continually being painted as a lunatic by the mainstream.

Same goes for Alex Jones, at least up until his apparent meltdown. He had a lot of 9/11 right, and actually made a prediction that something of that magnitude was going to happen prior to when it did. Personally, I think he just drove himself into a nervous breakdown, and the mainstream did what they're so good at - had a field day with him.

It's always the low-hanging fruit they censor first, but they'll eventually try to silence everyone who dares say anything they don't like.

"The Technocratic Age is slowly designing an every day more controlled society. The society will be dominated by an elite of persons free from traditional values who will have no doubt in fulfilling their objectives by means of purged techniques with which they will influence the behavior of people and will control and watch the society in all details". "... it will become possible to exert a practically permanent watch on each citizen of the world". - Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book, "Between Two Ages -- America's Role in the Technetronic Era"

This quote is so bloody important it should be hanging from every 5G pole in the country.

'...free from traditional values...'

Already younger people have absolutely NO concept of privacy. They've never had any and they don't even care. And this one is minor compared to many other traditional values that are being abandoned/destroyed/spit on.

I have just watched a few minutes of your David Icke video and will watch the rest later. He talks about the books 1984 by George Orwell and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both books are very good; I read them both, albeit a long time ago. I never thought much about it, but I have wondered why those two books turned out to be so close to what has come true. Icke talks about Huxley and Orwell being in the same secret society in Britain. Icke says the reasons they were able to write those books was because they had access to the "projected future" in the secret society.. Knowing that, I now know Orwell and Huxley were not prophetic, they had inside knowledge of what was projected to become real.

Seeing your Zbigniew Brzezinski quote, I added another of his in a previous comment. Here is another quote of Huxley's,


"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution"

- Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, University of California Medical School, Lecture 1961

This is where, I believe, David Icke gets it wrong. Icke seems to be arguing that George Orwell and Aldous Huxley were so prophetic because they were involved in a powerful, sinister, secret organization called the Fabian Society , which argued for democratic socialism.

I have always thought well of Aldous Huxley He was a humanist and pacifist and was deeply influenced by philosophical or Eastern mysticism. David Icke is probably against any form of socialism . I don't have any evidence that the Fabian Society is as diabolical as David Icke seems to indicate in the video.

I consider this article one of the best which I have read on this site. Nowadays, only a few sources would publish this type of article(s).

There is a real story of a reporter who went to a house in Israel. He knocked on the door. A settler opened the door. The real owner was with the reporter too. The reporter asked few questions about the house. The settler did not know, however, its real owner who was forced out knew.

Question: How can anybody live in a house which belonged to other people? What does religion say about this or similar actions?

It seems rule of force has replaced the rule of law and some people are getting away with their actions. I have lost my trust in the legal system.

Other authors here have written or linked to articles about ancient scriptures that appear to grant 'permission' for the violence and theft we are witnessing. Scriptures like the Talmud that are studied to at least some degree in rabbinical schools.

Here's just one of many explanations.

It's all too convoluted and ugly for me. So I'll hop on Molly's bandwagon for a god who smiles when we're finished with all this bloody, bloody stupidity.

Janet, thanks for sharing the video entitled "Sir Winston Churchill, Rothschild Zionism, and the Creation of Israel." I watched it and it was very informative and thought-provoking.
