Video of discussion:



One of the pioneering movies of the early film industry was called the Birth of a Nation by DW Griffith. In it ,the African Americans ,who had been subject to horrible slavery for centuries and had finally been freed, were now depicted as the evil ones, and the former slaveholders of the South who rose up against these now freed slaves are depicted as the heroes of the awakening American nation.

Talk about successfully turning heroes into villains and villains into heroes!

It gives me a sense of what is happening to us as Jews today. I read the image that is being broadcast to the world, by violent riots of pro-Palestinian groups and what is being spread on tic toc and the like, and I see that we Jews, who have been history’s victims , now are being portrayed as history’s villains.


Blaming Jews for one’s own failings is nothing new in history, but we are just watching a particularly malicious variant unfolding in our own times.

The Bible already hints at the problem of our being a minority in a foreign land. In the case of Jospeh, Potiphar’s wife harps on the tune of “Hebrew who plays with us” and Pharaoh claims: “They have become numerous and too powerful, they will join with the enemy against us (and leave us!).

Just like D W Griffith, ancient Egyptian writers also tried blame the Israelite slaves for trying to take over Egypt!

Much of the elements of anti-Semitism predate even the start of Christianity.

Thus, Blood libel was first propagated by Antiochus’ supporters against Jews, that Jews capture a Greek for sacrifice.

The theological and political foundation for the continued enslavement and denigration of Jews gets its start under the Romans and takes root with the rise of “Successor” to Judaism, Christianity.

What was an internal conflict among Jews, between the small Jesus community and the majority of Jews, evolves into a race to put as much distance between as possible. This is especially so when the Roman Empire turns full force against Jews in the wars of 70 and 135. The early Christians wanted to avoid, like the plague, any association with Jews in the Empire. Therefore, the early Christian texts were re-edited, to shift the blame, on Jesus’ crucifixion, from the Romans to the Jews. Thus, Matthew 27:25 All the people answered, “His blood be on us and on our children!” 

The Jew is then endowed with demonic attributes:

John 8:44: You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. “

 Deicide (God-killer) and the Jew condemned to eternal wandering become the regnant motif of western civilization.

The conflict is flamed by the early church thinkers. Church Fathers, such as John Chrysostom, went further in their condemnation: Against the Jews.  Homily 1

: (6) Although such beasts are unfit for work, they are fit for killing. And this is what happened to the Jews: while they were making themselves unfit for work, they grew fit for slaughter.

The split is grounded in Roman law-Theodosius code: In 404, Jews were excluded from certain governmental posts. In 418, they were barred from the civil service, and from all military positions. In 425, they were excluded from all remaining public offices, both civilian and military—a prohibition which Justinian I reinforced.

Continued in 1215 in the Lateran Council as Jews are forced to wear distinct clothes (yellow badge, borrowed from Islam)

This subjugation of the Jews, suffered only to be preserved in order to bear witness to Christianity, continued until the early modern times. So, no one less than the father of the Protestant Reformation, the man who single-handedly broke the power of the Catholic Church and ushered in the modern era with the idea of the centrality of individual conscience, Martin Luther, was himself the author of a miserable work, On the Jews and Their Lies, a work that was republished many times under the Third Reich.

Therefore, be on your guard against the Jews, knowing that wherever they have their synagogues, nothing is found but a den of devils in which sheer self-glory, conceit, lies, blasphemy, and defaming of God and men are practiced most maliciously and vehemently with his eyes on them.

Jews were tolerated in Europe because they were useful to the rulers. The Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, as legal successor to Titus claimed the rights of possession and protection over all the Jews in the former Roman empire.

Jews  had the status of Servi camerae regis (Latin) "servants of the royal chamber”, or slave. Similarly, in England, under the Norman conquerors, the Jews were brought in as Property of the King,” Chattels”.

As the King’s property, they could not be harmed by the mobs (although they were) but also, as property, they could be disposed of, as trash, when no longer useful. 

At best, the Jew could live as a bird in a gilded cage--gilded, but still a cage—and when the Jew became too useful for the Royalty, and the crowds were aroused, the Jew was dispatched.

The Jew, like Joseph Suess Oppenheimer, could only go so far, until he is hung in that gilded cage.

As we entered the modern era of the west, our status as free and equal citizens was given slowly, and grudgingly, and often taken back!

Modern antisemitism in Europe gave the world’s oldest hatred a new intellectual veneer. Thus, it was given a leftist-class basis, under Karl Marx, who wrote “On the Jewish Question, “Zur den Judenfrage”, before he wrote his “Das Kapital.”

“In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism. . What, in itself, was the basis of the Jewish religion? Practical need, egoism…. The monotheism of the Jew, therefore, is in reality the polytheism of the many needs, a polytheism which makes even the lavatory an object of divine law. …The social emancipation of the Jew is the emancipation of society from Judaism.”

There was the modern, rightist, race and nation based variant on the theme, and, appropriately, it was termed, in answer  to Marx,” Endloesung zur Judenfrage”—The Final solution for the Jewish Question.

It is vital to note--Modern Christians have changed greatly in their preaching, especially the Catholic Church, as well as the major Protestant denominations, many openly Zionist .It is rare, indeed, to find an antisemite of religious conviction in the Christian world. But Christianity, as it is in Europe, for example, is a fading force.


But, just as Christianity has shifted away from the Judeophobic roots, relinquished its secessionist outlook and lost its power as well, the Moslem world , in part in reaction to modernism, has doubled down on Jews. This status of the Jew as the Devil reared its ugly head even before the context of Israel and Zionism in the Middle East.

It has long been claimed that Jews fared better under Islam than under Christianity. While the claim has merit, it, of course, is only relative, not absolute.

Mohammed rose to power with Jewish allies, and then, when they fail to back him, he turned on them. What starts because of a political power struggle became magnified into a fight between Islam and Judaism.

Say: “People of the Book, …” Whomsoever God has cursed, and with whom He is wroth, and made some of them apes and swine, and worshippers of idols — they are worse situated, and have gone further astray from the right way. (5:64-65)

And He brought down those of the People of the Book who supported them from their fortresses and cast terror in their hearts; some you slew, some you made captive. And He bequeathed upon you their lands, their habitations, and their possessions, and a land you never trod. God is powerful over everything. (33:26)

What may have been said by Mohammed in his fight for supremacy over the Arabian tribes lent itself only too easily to actual demonization of the Jews.

It also became a basis to justify lying about the intentions of the Oslo accords by Arafat:

This was from the  secret speech by Yasser Arafat, Johannesburg: "This agreement, I am not considering it more than the agreement which had been signed between our Prophet Muhammad and Quraish, and you remember the Caliph Omar had refused this agreement and considered it "Sulha Dania" [a despicable truce]. But Muhammad had accepted it, and we are accepting now this [Oslo] peace accord." Private recording  | May 10, 1994,


 As explained by those who know Islam, that treaty, the Hudaybiyyah peace treaty, which called for a 10-year truce was broken by Muhammad in two years. Arafat hinted to his followers that these accords, too, were destined to be broken.

The original restrictions which Mohammed placed on the Jewish tribes he conquered were reinforced and increased in the Hadith(Oral traditions)-Especially of Al Bukhari, who is considered the authority behind most Islamic militants today. This statement is part of the charter of Hamas, for example.

The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (the Boxthorn tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews. (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).Sahih Muslim41:6985,

Even with Islamic so-called tolerance there were limits.

From Robert Wistrich, Muslim Anti-Semitism: p 6ff


… their existence from Morocco to Iran was punctuated by misery, humiliation, and popular violence… the greatest of medieval Jewish philosophers, Maimonides, to refer bitterly to the “nation of Ishmael, who persecute us severely, and who devise ways to harm us and debase us.”


The legal status of Jews and Christians …that of dhimmis (“protected peoples”), whose religions were officially recognized by the authorities. On payment of a poll tax (jîzya), they could freely practice their faiths, enjoy a certain degree of personal security, and have their own communal organizations. But the protection afforded to the “peoples of the Book” (ahl al-kitab) was combined with subjugation; the “tolerance” they benefited from existed within a social framework of discrimination and disabilities that constantly emphasized the superiority of Muslims to both Jews and Christians.


Jews could not, for example, bear arms; they could not ride horses; they were required to wear distinctive clothing (the yellow badge had its origins in Baghdad, not in medieval Europe); and they were forbidden to build new places of worship. Their dhimmi status, as elaborated by Muslim jurists from the inception of Islam until the early twentieth century, has been succinctly summarized as follows:


Dhimmis were often considered impure(najes) and had to be segregated from the Muslim community. Entry into holy Muslim towns, mosques, public baths, as well as certain streets was forbidden them. Their turbans—when they were permitted to wear them —their costumes, belts, shoes, the appearance of their wives and their servants had to be different from those of Muslims in order to distinguish and humiliate them; for the dhimmis could never be allowed to forget that they were inferior beings.


Even in Golden Age of Spain, there were periods pogroms in Cordoba and Granada, of forced conversion and expulsion, as under the Almohades. Jews were exiled from capital of Yemen, Sana-Galut Mauza 1600’s. those in walled towns had to live outside the wall, exposed to enemy attack. In Iran, there were harsh laws restricting Jews, with forced conversion in Isfahan 1600’s, and Mashad in the 1800’s.

It is true that these laws applied also to Christians—however, as Europe became increasingly powerful, especially after the Reconquista- the local Christians could count on protection from their European protectors. Jews had no protectors!



Even into the beginnings of the modern era, one can find the enforcement of the orphan’s law, as in Yemen- every baby is born a Muslim, and it is only his parents who misguide the baby. Therefore, when a child becomes and orphan, he or she now belongs to the local ruler and is taken form the family and raised as a Muslim. The only exception was for those already married, and therefore, in Yemen, it was common to arrange for child-marriages in order to prevent the child from being kidnapped.


Even till today, Islam allows for a negotiated settlement between families of the murderer and the murdered, in lieu of death penalty. However, the settlement price for a Jew is far less than the price for either a Christian or a Muslim, and that was the law in Iran till this century.


Now, as we enter the modern period, the Islamic world is influenced by trends, for good, and for bad, from Europe—and, regarding Jews, the worst of both left and right. The idea of

Nationalist anti-Semitism, for example. The term anti-Semite is invented by William Barr to describe his new movement, an attack on Jews as an alien race, but never meant as an attack on Arabs, who were seen as a nobler race.

The Jew as a distinct and permanently alien nation has no place inside the host nation. Theodore Herzl understood this very well.

It is no wonder that the Mufti of Jerusalem could feel comfortable at a tete a tete with Adolph Hitler and lead the Bosnian SS during WWII.

What was a distinctly European form found fertile soil in the rising Arab nationalism, which begins to see the Jew as alien. Riots break out against Jews, not just in pre-State Palestine, but around the Arab world, such as the Farhood in Baghdad.

Thus, there is the denial of rights to Jews in the newly freed colonies of North Africa.

Albert Memmi-great ideologist of Tunisian independence, colleague of Franz Fanon:

 “We would have liked to be Arab Jews. If we abandoned the idea, it is because over the centuries the Moslem Arabs systematically prevented its realization by their contempt and cruelty. It is now too late for us to become Arab Jews. Not only were the homes of Jews in Germany and Poland torn down, scattered to the four winds, demolished, but our homes as well. . .. Never, I repeat, never - with the possible exception of two or three very specific intervals such as the Andalusian, and not even then - did the Jews in Arab lands live in other than a humiliated state, vulnerable and periodically mistreated and murdered, so that they should clearly remember their place. [].”

So, like Jud Suess in Germany, Jews in Arab lands, at best, were in a gilded cage, and at a whim, could be eliminated.

Public hanging of Jews in Baghdad, 1969. The same happened to the leader of the Jewish community in Iran when Khomeini took charge.


I look at the historic response to the Jewish desire to return to the land of Israel. Set aside the claim that to do so meant the displacement of the existing Arabs of the land that was designated as Palestine. That land was itself underpopulated and neglected after centuries of Ottoman rule. When Jews came in, prosperity came with it, and the Arab population increased in tandem.

Why then was there so much vehemence to an autonomous Jewish territory in the midst of what would be the Great Arab Awakening, which would have benefitted so much from the influx of a skilled and educated population.

The only comparison that I can think of is the vehement reaction of the Southern whites to the newly freed slaves. I go back to the DW Griffith movie, Birth of a Nation, Suddenly, the very people upon whom the white masters stepped on so easily in the ante-bellum South, could be free, and independent, and raised the hackles of the former slave-holders, who had indulged themselves in their sense of superiority. The rise of the Ku Klux Klan in its day was seen as defense of white supremacy, and the newly freed black was soon put back in his place, by force of law of “Jim Crow”.

I can only see the response of the Arab world, in the early years of the Zionist movement, acting in the same way as the early white supremacists—here were the Jews, the former dhimmi, the former lowly, inferior Jews, acting like equals.  It is no wonder that the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al Banna, was vehemently a Jew-hater, or that the Mufti of Jerusalem could be at home with Adolf Hitler.

The horrors unleashed on the Israelis on October 7 can only be understood in the light of a visceral reaction of the once superior Arabs now having to deal with their upstart and uppity former slaves. I can understand the depth of anger the former master holds against his newly liberated slave. What I can’t understand, is why intelligent, enlightened people, the product of western liberalism, would side with the masters of the Middle East and not with the newly freed and emancipated Jew. It’s like siding with the KKK in the Birth of a Nation movie.

The Unkindest Cut of All Part III --On Jews and other enablers of Hamas with a lookback 75 years


The Unkindest Cut of All-Part III 

On Jews and other enablers of Hamas with a lookback 75 years


This last Thursday and Friday November 8th and 9th marked 85 years since the dreaded Kristallnacht or as it is often translated into English,The Night of Broken Glass. I don't need to belabor details as to what it signified. I do have in my own family records a note that my grandmother in Vienna was among those attacked at that time and then shortly afterwards my grandparents were able to escape to Switzerland and my father and uncle headed off to Czechoslovakia.

It has been 85 years since ,and I know that we Jews around the world had felt much more safe and secure since the rise of the state of Israel. We had been accustomed to saving Jews in the middle of the hijacking to in Entebbe or the airlifting of Jews to safety throughout the Middle East and Africa in the intervening years. After the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War, and more recently, with the potential alliances with various Arab countries, we could allow ourselves into a dream of security.

None of us could have imagined the horror of something worse than a Kristallnacht or  something worse than the worst pogroms of the past but, that did happen on October 7. We have marked the shloshim the 30 days of mourning for those who are dead yet we know that our mourning,  both in Israel, and out, is not ended.

Last week, I allowed myself to vent on those who tried to pin the blame on Israel, or create some kind of equivalency, whether by international authorities or even local media.

I turn now to my central gripe: history repeats itself, or, déjà vu all over again.

 I have been  in the midst of looking for material from my father’s documents for a special exhibit to be opened in December in Frankfurt, Germany, on the 75th anniversary of the re-establishing of the Jewish community after the Holocaust. As you may know, my father, Rabbi Dr William Weinberg, served as the first State Rabbi of Hesse, but before that, he worked with the DP camps in Austria.I published a book about his years up through Soviet exile and, I hope, one day, to follow up with an account of the years helping survivors rebuild their lives. In the process I found three articles of his, from the very first years after the Holocaust, to be eerily relevant to what we are seeing today,

 First, you can hear, very loudly, the justification that the Palestinians are, after all, suffering at the hands of Jews, qua Zionists, for 56, then 75, and, yes 100 years. We should not be surprised if they raped, beheaded, tortured, and kidnapped. It’s “ distributive justice.”

Student groups at Harvard decried Israel as “entirely responsible” for Hamas’ attack; groups at the University of Virginia went a step further in saying that “colonized people can resist occupation of their land by whatever means they deem necessary”; and groups at Tufts took the cake by praising Hamas’ ingenious creativity.

Now, Jewish students are being physically attacked on campuses at Tulane and elsewhere.

Sadly, for us, the protests by the pro-Palestinian camp are very rough and aggressive, and a local Jewish pro-Israel protestor , Paul Kessler, was knocked to the ground and killed by a pro-Palestinian protestor just this past Sunday. Violence by the pro-Palestinian side is not knew—we saw similar attacks on Jews here just two years ago by the “fellow travelers” and “useful idiots” of Hamas.


All of this anger, against Israel, and by extension, against Jews, has been , as we have seen, “justified” by apologists for murder. As I said, déjà vu, just this “ blame the victim” tactic was used against Jews even while we were still mourning our dead and licking our wounds after the greatest and almost completely successful attempt at erasing us physically from this planet.

So here is how the same apologists for murder blamed us after the Holocaust in the same tones:


Not mine, but your fault! Dec 1946, in a German journal, Der Neue Weg.

Now the silence is broken, and people are speaking lately also to non-Jews about what had happened to us in the Hitler era. It is therefore not without interest for us to note that what the Austrian accomplices have to say about the causes . The final sentences of this article by a. D. Hornbostel: “Anti-Semitism and Jewish problem" are significant for us.

We quote the same verbatim:

“Another prerequisite for a peaceful and prosperous coexistence with the Jewish elements in Europe is of course the determination of the Jews themselves to get rid of all the fatal mistakes and weaknesses that anti-Semitism wants to attack and incited him to such brutal activity as we have unfortunately had to witness in the recent past.”

 In other words, you Jews deserved it!

Thus, my father summed up the implication:

 “The murder of 6 million Jews in Europe and their plundering were ultimately the expression of the righteous people's anger. At least that's what it must sound like to the ears of the average anti-Semitic reader.”…

“If we're talking about mistakes, why not talk about your own mistakes at the same time! Is this the Austrian way of looking for the splinter in your neighbor's eye and overlooking the beam in your own? …

Were Hitler, Seyss-Inquart, Kaltenbrunner, and countless of their accomplices notAustrian? “


Hence, the opposite of a Catholic confession: I have not sinned, rather, you have sinned.!

 This after the Holocaust. This same tone was sounded by political and academic figures here, after the murder, rape, torture and kidnapping of 2023!

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib: after a full day of silence, finally said:

"I grieve the Palestinian and Israeli lives lost yesterday, today, and every day," "As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue."

Yes, she cries, but it all Israel’s fault ( with US backing, of course).She also had her original interpretation of “ From the River to the Sea”, saying it was merely “aspirational.” So was Endlösung der Judenfrage-The final solution of the Jewish problem, merely “asprational”.

Now, we have had actual physical attacks on Jews on campuses at Tulane and , closer to home, a UC Davis professor tweeting a call to violence:

 So, Non Mea—its not my fault- its your fault, déjà vu!

 Then, we have those among our Jews, who are very complacent, living lives of comparative luxury and privilege, who would disconnect from the entire Jewish affair. Just so in December of 1945, when the rubbles of war had finally settled in Vienna :

Wir Sind Quitt: We are even! Are we really!( Der Neue Weg)

Here is a summary of the verbal fight as it appeared in a journal of Austrian literature (Friedrich Torberg und Hans Weigel — Zwei Jüdische Schriftsteller im Nachkriegsösterreich :Evelyn Adunka,Modern Austrian Literature, Vol. 27, No. 3/4, Special Issue: The Jewish Presence in Contemporary Austrian Literature (1994), pp. 213-237 (25 pages) “ Two Jewish writers in post-War Austria”.)

Hans Weigel was a noted Austrian Jewish playwright and theater critic, who survived the Holocaust in relative comfort in Switzerland.


In October 1945 Weigel wrote in an article in the American-published Wiener Kurier:

 "We have nothing to blame each other. No one can bring his dead alive.

With you many are dead and with us too. But we're even! We don't think too much about yesterday."

             Wilhelm Weinberg, the later chief rabbi of Frankfurt am Main, commented on               this     article in the Vienna Jewish Der Neue Weg magazine:

  "Perhaps Mr. Weigel is even - we, the majority of Jews around the world and here too, Not." Weinberg's disgust was joined by a second one: Imagine the indignation when Weigel ,"in the exuberance of "Joy of reunion", was not content with "receipts of over six and a half million dead," but "also to differentiate those Jews who do not want to return home," with the equally problematic sentence: "Because no one is ever forced to return home, only those who come here will come back, who are the most 'Austrian' elements.”


My father went on to contrast this Jewish writer, who had lived comfortably in Switzerland, and was only too happy to return to Austria, with the greatest modern German writer, Thomas Mann, who made the US his new home.


Of the same ilk, as some of you may recall, a Jewish Chancellor of Austria, Bruno Kreisky,  in the 1970’s, of the same stripe as this writer, who turned the Socialist movements against Israel, said:

 Wenn die Juden ein Volk sind, so ist es ein mieses Volk.« Quoted by his press secretary:

If Jews are indeed a people, then they are a “mieses volk”, an ugly people!

( Der Spiegel,

 Surely, though, the most painful of all , has been the rush to blame Israel by our very own, the very heirs to a Bruno Kreisky, or a Hans Wiegel, or their intellectual ancestor, the very great antisemite, the intellectual father of all anti-semitism, Karl Marx.

 Here too, we have the case of those who, in the Talmudic statement, “ act like Zimri ( who betrayed Israel in the Sinai) “but demand the reward of Zimri”, who saved the Israelites from Zimri’s sin.

 We might prefer to  use a line from Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”, about Brutus, his closest friend, who stabbed Caesar

“ For Brutus, as you know, was Caesar's angel:
Judge, O you gods, how dearly Caesar loved him!
This was the most unkindest cut of all”.

 This is a summary of key points in my father’s essay, “Regarding the Problem of Jewish Quislings”. It was published in a special edition of the journal, “ Mosty and Opinin”, in May of 1947 ,as the Jewish communities in Austria and Germany were trying to organize themselves while still in pain from the wounds of Nazi murder.


(The full translation and the text can be found here:

“In all European states that had the misfortune to experience the bloody rule of the Germans, the concept of Quislings is known, those people who are criminally inclined, by fear or opportunism, or political immaturity, or for money, without dignity, or for the sake of supposed national interests, in the moral sense or factual sense, to have made themselves accomplices of the Nazi tyrants.

“In antiquity we had our Josephus Flavius, who abandoned his comrades in arms in the most difficult hour of our people and went over to the throne, and who, while his comrades were dragged behind the triumphant’ s chariot, enjoyed himself at the court of the same triumphant by writing hymns in his honor. In the same tragic epoch …Tiberius Alexander( nephew of the great 1st Jewish philosopher) , …governor in Judea, and later as governor in Egypt, who let his legions of blood-hungry and rapacious soldiers, like wild animals and beasts, loose on the quarters of the Jews in Alexandria , and then took part     under Titus in the conquest of Jerusalem as the actual head …”

“As is well known, history repeats itself. During Hitler's time, many Jews helped in the enslavement and deportation of the Jews to the labor concentration and extermination camps. Many have committed guilt in their capacity as Judenrate( Jewish council member) by compiling and signing lists of those destined for destruction or by assisting in the confiscation of Jewish assets for the benefit of the Germans; many have committed guilt in their capacity as Jupos (Jewish police) by enlisting Jews for destruction or deportation ; some took part directly in the atrocities and devilries of the Germans as kapos.”

“Times of emergency are known to be the best ground for political adventurers and our time of need is not yet over. While most Jews returned home wandering, lost, groping, grieving, disappointed, uprooted, desperate and tired of life, our Quislings looked in a good mood, were impeccably dressed and stood out from all the others because of their well-fed nature.”

Such people have forfeited, according to all written and unwritten laws in all liberated countries, the right to play any leading role in social life, …

“Where they still try to push themselves into the foreground, it is the inevitable duty of every Jew to push them into the background.”


Now, after the knowledge of the horrid pillage, rape, torture, murder, infanticide, and kidnapping, I reserve my greatest revulsion, after the officers and soldiers of Hamas, who carried it out, next onto those of our own, who thought it was “cool” or “hip” or “progressive” to take over the Capital Rotunda ywo weeks ago and Grand Central Station this week, in the name of Jewish Voices For Peace, threatening to shut down the emblem of American democracy, all the while draped in Talit and kippah.They repeated the grand-standing a week later in Grand Central Station.

Here is a group of younger Jews who use this as a flag of distinction, something possible only for children of privileged Jewish elites.

Here is their shameless proclamation:

“We converged in historic numbers in D.C. with unprecedented heart, power, and ferocity, to say: Ceasefire now. Not in our names, not with our money.

This was the largest Jewish protest in solidarity with Palestinians ever.

A staggering 5,000 people from around the country descended on the National Mall in a “Jews against Genocide” rally — with only a couple days notice, in the middle of a Wednesday workday. We were proud to be joined by Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush, as well as author and activist Naomi Klein and actor Mo Amer, as well as our friends at IfNotNow, who had led us in an impressive shut-down of all 13 entrances of the White House on Monday.

Then two dozen rabbis led almost 500 Jews in a sit-in in the rotunda of a key Capitol building. As rabbis blew shofars and shared testimonials from Palestinians in Gaza, the thousands outside the building chanted “Ceasefire now!” and “Let Gaza live!” We shut down the street outside the offices of members of congress for three hours, elected officials and staffers watching from their windows as capitol police arrested the hundreds inside the building.


This happened as the organization accepted, like all other progressive groups, the Hamas ministry lie of the hospital bombing.The blood of the massacred of October 7 was still wet on the ground and these Quislings mourned the murderers. It is the” most unkindest cut of all”, as it is so convenient, for enemies of the Jews to trot out their token Jew, and use it against us. Jewish students have been harrassed and physically attacked on campus across the country, in part, due to such protestations.

I will now apply my father’s recommendations about the Jewish Quislings and suggest that the Jewish community close out jobs for these fellow travelers. I know that I am being ungenerous, but when the Middle East has been taken over by the dogs of Khomeini, the Hezbollahs, the Hamases, the Houthis, there is no room for generosity of spirit. These are the fellow travelers of Al Qaeda and ISIS. 

Remember that the Communists, too, were split into Stalinists and Trotskyites ,Maoists and Viet-Kongists- often, deadly enemies, yet united in the same goal of ideological domination.

Think carefully when posing for the under trodden.There was one Jew who rose to the highest pinnacle of success in the fight for revolutionary Justice, “the genius of the revolution”, the founder of the Red Army , and the proponent of perpetual revolution, Leon Trotsky:

This is what he received from his colleague and comrade in arms when he was getting his hair cut in Mexico City, exiled from his country, an axe to the head:

 One last thought of warning

 The Jew was the canary in the coal mine in World War II. The Jew, as Israeli, or Zionist, is still the canary in the coal mine. It's not my words, it is , as the Arabs themselves have said” First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”
