Has anyone out there ever noticed that Jewish groups don’t criticize Glenn Beck? The right-wing is all over any percieved anti-Semitism, except when it comes from other right wingers of course.
A lot of people are criticized by the right for being and supposedly being anti-semetic. Often these people are just anti-Israli genocidal policy towards Palestine. There are many people who have been critized as such.
How many Jews do any of us know who are afraid of being attacked because they are Jews here in the United States?
If Jews experienced the weeks of undiluted hate that Muslims experienced during the phony “Ground Zero mosque” controversy, we would be packing for Israel, or to whatever refuge would have us.
But Muslims are attacked. Their mosques are burned. And the right incites this hatred, using powerful media outlets (Fox News and hundreds of radio stations) to get the message across.
The pro-Israel lobby itself is, no doubt, quite pleased about the Islamo-hatred in this country. For them it’s a zero-sum game. Those who hate Muslims are more likely to admire Israel.
That is why the lobby is silent about Glenn Beck.
The Zinonist lobby believes and teaches its adherents that anti-Semitism means opposing Israel’s policies. Old-fashioned anti-Semitism, the kind that dripped like venom from Glenn Beck’s week-long series, does not concern the lobby. It’s okay to be anti-Semitic, so long as you are pro-Israel.
All this could be perplexing, but now along comes Max Blumenthal, a young writer, who begins the job of explaining how and why the lobby has changed the definition of anti-Semitism, and how and why it benefits from (and, in some cases, supports) Islamo-hatred.
Years before Tea Party shock troops massed for angry protests outside the proposed site of an Islamic community centre in lower Manhattan, representatives of the Israel lobby and the Jewish-American establishment launched a campaign against pro-Palestinian campus activism that would prove a seedbed for everything to come.
That campaign quickly – and perhaps predictably – morphed into a series of crusades against mosques and Islamic schools, which in turn attracted an assortment of shady but exceptionally energetic militants into the network’s ranks.
Besides providing the initial energy for the Islamophobic crusade, conservative elements from within the pro-Israel lobby bankrolled the network’s apparatus, enabling it to influence the national debate. One philanthropist in particular has provided the beneficence to propel the campaign ahead.
The Tea Baggers aside from being the prostitutes of the corporate agenda, they are now the whore of the Zinonist campaigne to push genocide of palestine.
suddenly the anti-Muslim mania and the indifference to Glenn Beck and other right-wing anti-Semites make sense. It’s all about discrediting Muslims for Israel’s sake.
All of this is just hate propaganda. It seems as though the right wing has not leanred the lessons of haterd… and as such, they are doomed to repeate it. or more specifically, their victims are doomed to it.
