The Myth of Jewish Tolerance

(Can we rant?)

The inspiration for this article came from a book entitled "The Myth of Islamic Tolerance" written by an Islamophobic author by the name of Robert Spencer. By the way, I had never heard of that particular "myth" before and I doubt if anyone else has, but one myth I certainly have heard of is the myth of Jewish tolerance.

In fact, there's a Jewish museum by the name of "The Museum of Tolerance" in Los Angeles, California. It's another Holocaust Museum, one of approximately 250 worldwide, not to mention the hundreds, perhaps thousands of Holocaust Memorial statues and public displays around the world as well. Basically the message is "LOOK AT HOW INTOLERANT THE WORLD HAS BEEN OF JEWS! AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET YOU FORGET ABOUT IT! DEEP DOWN INSIDE YOU ARE ALL ANTI-SEMITES! WE KNOW IT EVEN IF YOU DON'T. WE HAVE BEEN AND ARE ALWAYS INNOCENT VICTIMS AND YOU ARE ALWAYS HARBORING MONSTROUS MURDEROUS THOUGHTS ABOUT US."

Anyway, it's not a positive message. Nor is it an inclusive message. It implies that Jewish suffering is the most important suffering and this must always be remembered above all and not forgotten for one moment. Therefore, we, the Jewish people, cannot be criticized, and we, the Jewish people, deserve special treatment and privileges. We, the Jewish people, are above being equals with others. These beliefs seem to be a part of the underlying message of Holocaust museums.

It is used to garner public support for organized Jewry's apartheid, ethnocentric Jewish state of Israel, perhaps the most belligerently intolerant country in the world. Where is Jewish Israel's tolerance of the indigenous Muslim and Christian Palestinians? Muslims and Christians are barely tolerated inside Israel, and persecuted severely in the Palestinian Territories, in an on-going endeavor to ethnically cleanse the land of Palestine in order to claim it all for the Jewish state of Israel.

As Jewish settlers, many of them from Brooklyn, New York, continue to aggressively steal more Palestinian land, creating illegal settlements ("facts on the ground") that are then protected by the Israeli Defense Force, this goal is steadily being achieved. That these illegal settlements are assigned protection by the Israeli government underscores the fact that Israel is actively supporting this land grab, contrary to what Sharon might say about any desire for peace or about withdrawing from the Palestinian Territories.

Spencer's book "The Myth of Islamic Tolerance" is being touted on C-span's BookTV. And we'll probably easily be able find it at all the major bookstores, maybe even prominently displayed on one of those tables up front or by the cash register. He has also written another inflammatory, anti-Islamic book entitled "Islam Unveiled" with a book cover showing half of the face being the Islamic fanatic known as Mohammed Atta, allegedly one of the terrorists who committed 9-11, and the other part of the face a veiled Muslim woman. Were there any screaming accusations of "Anti-Islamicism" bandied about anywhere in the media or from politicians? Any boycotts organized against the media outlets featuring this book? Any intimidating threats?

I would love to write or see someone else write a book entitled "Judaism Unveiled" and get the kind of coverage "Islam Unveiled" received. In it, there would be the many anti-Christ and anti-Christian verses that can be found in the Talmud, for instance. There would also be a full description of the brutal way in which non-Jewish Palestinians were treated when the Jewish state of Israel was created and how this persecution of the non-Jewish indigenous people of Palestine is still continuing with the full and unconditional support of the US government, including the funneling of billions of tax dollars yearly to Israel, which is already the 16th wealthiest country in the world per capita. It would include the fact that most Jewish people today are not religious but rather secular, meaning non-religious, not believing in God, but rather actively identify with the Jewish race, ethnicity, people or tribe, or whichever one cares to call it. There would be photos of the graffiti you can find all over Israel that is never removed, and therefore officially endorsed, with slogans such as "Kill Arabs!" and "Arabs to the Gas Chambers!" There would be a full and honest account of the history of Israel and Zionism, a racist ideology that maintains that there must a Jewish supremacist state of Israel in Palestine at the expense of the non-Jewish Palestinian people, as is revealed in "Origins of the Palestine-Israel Conflict" written by the Jews for Justice in the Middle East at www.cactus48.com.

On the book cover would be a face of which half would be a pious looking bespectacled Jewish man with a skull cap on his head, a prayer shawl draped on his shoulders, and with a Torah scroll in his hand and the other half of the face would have the former Israeli general and current Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon with his menacing mug peering out at you, in military garb and with an Uzi in his hand. After all, his nickname is "The Butcher of Beirut", for his part in the Sabra and Shatila massacres in Lebanon in 1982, as well as his on-going campaign of unholy terror against the Palestinians. Truly, Ariel Sharon is a top dog terrorist. Numero Uno Terrorist in the world, in the opinion of billions of people, this author included. Unfortunately, this particular terrorist is wined and dined at The White House. His terrorist activities are funded with billions of US taxpayers' dollars every year. Why more American people are not enraged about this is somewhat of a mystery, but then again it's not.

The reason many American people appear to be apathetic about this is because they are generally not made aware of this. And if they somehow do become aware of it, generally, they go along with it anyway, because it's easier to go along with it. After all, President Bush LOVES Sharon. Bush even praised Sharon as "A man of Peace" even right after he ordered the Israeli army to commit massacres in the Palestinian town of Jenin in 2002. Americans have been thoroughly trained by the Zionist Judaized US media to believe that all Muslims are terrorists and that Jews are always innocent victims. Which brings me back to the inspiration for this article. But of course, if someone wrote books with the titles "Judaism Unveiled" and "The Myth of Jewish Tolerance", you would most likely not see them touted on C-Span's "BookTV". You would definitely not see them in the mainstream giant bookstores such as Borders or Barnes & Noble. You would probably not read a book review of it in The New York Times or any of the US mainstream newspapers. Why?

Because criticism of Judaism and Jewish behavior, especially if written by a non-Jew, is simply not allowed by the dominant censors and gate-keepers of the media world who tend to be Jewish themselves. If by some fluke, a book did manage to get into bookstores or be featured on "BookTV" or in newspapers, there would be a great rush by organized Jewish groups and activists to barrage the offending bookstore or TV station managers with accusations of "anti-Semitism", "disgusting hate-mongering", "neo-Nazi racism" and so on. Jewish activists would also threaten to pull advertising or organize boycotts against the offending parties. They would call for the resignation of those responsible for allowing such "filth" to be presented to the public. The more extreme Jewish activists would even anonymously make death threats and use vile profanities to those they felt responsible for allowing such "filth". All of this together effectively intimidates many would-be critics of anything remotely connected to Judaism, Jews, Zionism and Israel.

Sooner or later, more Americans, as they begin to awaken to this insidious form of tyranny and restriction of our rights, will challenge the status quo. But probably not until it's almost too late. Things will probably have to get much worse, especially with regards to the economy and more Americans being killed in wars fought for Israel's "security" as the politicians call it, before Americans start to claim their rights and demand an end to unconditional support for the state of Israel and all the negative correlating issues, such as endless, costly wars and the steady erosion of our freedoms, such as freedom of speech. If "Unveiling Islam" is tolerated, then "Unveiling Judaism" should be tolerated.

Exercise your right to freedom of speech and thought, or you might lose it. This cannot be tolerated.
