Anthony Lawson: "You didn't write those scriptures, but it is your problem if you follow them."

Dear Rachel:

You wrote:

Jews believe in peace, love, and understanding.  We do not hold any people inferior or superior.

At the very least, you could have put the word "Most" or "Many" at the beginning of that sentence.  So, give me a break.  Are you going to tell me that the words "Chosen People" (in Hebrew, of course) do not appear in Jewish scriptures?

Are you going to deny that there are many references in those scriptures which describe Goyim as having an inferior status to The Chosen People?  At the very least, you could have put the word "Most" or "Many" at the beginning of that sentence.

It is 
not your fault, you didn't write those scriptures, but it is your problem if you follow them, and, in doing so, engender dislike for a group of people who are taught that they are superior to others.  What those who control Israel fail to understand is that people don't like being thought of as being no better than cattle.  

And don't try playing the pity card about the cattle trucks; there 
are horrendous stories to be told about the treatment of non-Jewish human beings, before, during and after WW II, in Europe and the Pacific, than just those about Jews in Germany.  When will Jews, who think as you do, learn that this is another facet of themselves which only amplifies the feeling that they consider themselves to be more important that anyone else?  When the Armenians asked the Holocaust Museum in Washington to set aside a room to publicise a less-well advertised "holocaust": the massacres of Armenians by the Turks, they were refused, on the grounds that Israel's relations with Turkey were more important than showing respect for another group of people who had suffered in a similar way to the Jews in Germany.

You wrote.

If they would be willing to live in peace and harmony, there would be no need for allthe safety measures Israel must put into place to protect its citizens.

Are you seriously suggesting that it is the Palestinians and others in the region who are to blame?

Whatever bad feelings there 
are about Israel, they have brought upon themselves.  You can't go around punching and kicking weaker children in the playground—children whose parents once owned the school—stealing their lunch money and damaging their bicycles, or whatever,  and not expect an eventual backlash.  That monstrous wall is an affront to everyone who has even an ounce of compassion for the downtrodden Palestinians, but the staggering thing is that so many Jews simply cannot understand why this should be so.  The only reason I can think of is that they cannot understand that other people in the world do not think of the Palestinians as cattle. 


The Zionists, from their early machinations in Basle, in 1897, have systematically stolen almost an entire country; do you really think that they can get away with this, without some of the misery that they have inflicted on others being visited upon themselves?

Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides By Thomas Dalton

In this remarkable, balanced book, the author skillfully reviews and compares "traditional" and "revisionist" views on the "The Holocaust."

On one side is the traditional, orthodox view -- six million Jewish casualties, gas chambers, cremation ovens, mass graves, and thousands of witnesses. On the other is the view of a small band of skeptical writers and researchers, often unfairly labeled "deniers," who contend that the public has been gravely misled about this emotion-laden chapter of history.

The author establishes that the arguments and findings of revisionist scholars are substantive, and deserve serious consideration. He points out, for example, that even the eminent Jewish Holocaust scholar Raul Hilberg acknowledged that there was no budget, plan or order by Hitler for a World War II program to exterminate Europe's Jews.

This book is especially relevant right now, as "Holocaust deniers" are routinely and harshly punished for their "blasphemy," and as growing numbers of people regard the standard, Hollywoodized "Holocaust" narrative with mounting suspicion and distrust.

The author of this book, who writes under the pen name of "Thomas Dalton," is an American scholar who holds a doctoral degree from a major US university.

This is no peripheral debate between arcane views of some obscure aspect of twentieth century history. Instead, this is a clash with profound social-political implications regarding freedom of speech and press, the manipulation of public opinion, how our cultural life is shaped, and how power is wielded in our society.
