For years I have argued that Jewish power is the power to silence criticism of
Jewish Power. Now, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that my
observation is spot on.
PM May has decided to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance
(IHRA) definition of antisemitism and to integrate it into British law.
According to the IHRA, ''antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which
may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations
of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or
their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious
Pretty lazy definition I'd say. Substitute the word 'antisemitism' with
'bigotry' and the word 'Jews' with 'one people' and you end up with a
reasonably good definition of hatred itself. But our Theresa thinks Jews
deserve special protection. And why? Because although in Britain, as in the
USA, Germany and France everyone is equal in the eyes of the law, Jews are
somehow more equal than others.
Sir Eric Pickles, government envoy for 'post-Holocaust issue's, is also
committed to the Jews and the primacy of their suffering, so much so that he
has morphed into a giant gefilte fish. As Pickles told the BBC, the new
definition "catches up with modern antisemitism". It was, he said, ''important
not to conflate Jewish people with Israel.''
I couldn't agree more. We should never conflate Jews with Israel. First, Jews
are wonderfully, innocent, peace loving people - except perhaps the 14 million
or so of them who support Israel and give the entire tribe a bad name – and
second, it would be an absurd to ignore the five or so Jews who oppose Israel
and truly support Palestine. Maybe Pickles should use his position and
influence to lobby the Israeli government to stop defining Israel as the
''Jewish state'' – now, wouldn't that stop people conflating the Jews with
According to the IHRA, antisemitism can include denying the Jewish people
their right to self-determination. Again, I couldn't agree more. Since Britain
supported the rise of ISIS and armed its battalions, it's only fair that it
should also support the Jews-only state. And it's never too late for Britain
to admit that maybe an Aryan-only State is also a pretty kosher idea. And what
about a White state? Do white people not also have the right to
self-determination? I think we should be told.
Nor should it surprise us that man-of principle Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour
Party rushed to back May's move. After all, who more than that 'man of the
people' Jeremy Corbyn would understand the need of British workers to attach
themselves to Jewish sensitivities?
The Jewish Chronicle was kind enough to list the names of the Jewish leaders
that congratulated the move. For example, Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis saluted
the Prime Minister for her commitment to tackling the scourge of anti-Semitism
and Jonathan Arkush, Board of Deputies president also welcomed the government
decision. I wonder, is there not one Jewish leader who can see that such a
move, one that makes Jews special in the eyes of the law, is a recipe for
disaster? Does any Jewish leader really believe such a law will make British
Jews loved or respected?
Jewish history actually proves the opposite. It is always Jewish
exceptionalism that evolves into Jewish disaster.
