Religion of Peacenik on board the Turkish jihad warship flotilla preparing to stab an Israel soldier, May 31, 2010.
The problem is this:
The leaders of Israel as are presently in power, and I emphasize the word “presently”, are not prepared to go on the offensive against Turkey, and against Obama, and against the EU, who all stand behind the Turkish hatred of Israel.
Israel should have allied in the most explicit and practical manner with Mubarak, it should have done so with Gadhafi from day one, and it should also now do the same with Assad of Syria, despite all foolish advice from people like Caroline Glick. Remember if Assad falls there will not be a single Catholic or Christian, or indeed Muslim Kurd, left alive in Syria.
But the Israeli leaders, like Gelelr and Spencer, when it comes down to the nitty gritty, have no boldness about them.
And as Gadhafi has found out and now rues, he who hesitates or double thinks, and trusts Imperialism, is lost forever. That is the great danger facing Jews, not the rightness of their cause, or having to convince anybody of their cause, but leadership which is decisive.
They have not really internalized the lesson of Gadhafi giving up his Nuclear Arms to Imperialism, in return (his rich children thought and convinced the old desert fighter) that a deal could be had with Imperialism and with Imperialism in alliance with ITS Jihad.
In other words nobody, from Geller and Spencer, through all present Jewish leaders, have internalized fully just how close is the connection and alliance between the US Government above all others, and the Jihad, and the Anti-Semitism which plagues the earth.
The book “Blowback” by Christopher Simpson, should now be required (not reading) but STUDY, because this book details how US policy after 1945 became Nazi policy also.
In other words Hitler was dead, but the anti-Semitism was carried forward by the newly forming (founded 1947) CIA and the American State Department.
The Anticommunism and the Anti-Semitism became deeply ingrained in American Foreign Policy from 1945 to the present.
It goes without saying that Anticommunism and Anti-Semitism are deeply connected.
(For proof of this deep connection between anti-Semitism and anticommunism see the extract we print at the end from review of book by Michael Kellogg)
The position of Aryeh Eltad is indeed praiseworthy, even though he does not go far enough and draw the most precise lessons from the Mubarak and Gadhafi debacles.
He speaks on Israel National News, an excellent resource:
“The law of reciprocity – and the ‘law’ of the Middle East – require immediate expulsion of the ambassador to Turkey, filing a suit on behalf of the commandos who were injured – and the State of Israel for expenses incurred – as a result Turkey’s negligence in preventing the flotilla from sailing illegally, and immediate cessation of the supply and maintenance of military contracts with Turkey “.
MK Eldad added that during the first week after the Knesset holiday he will advance a bill to recognize the Armenian Genocide by Turkey.
Eldad’s comments come on the heels of Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Devutoglu saying his nation rejected the findings of the UN Palmer Report on the 2010 Gaza-flotilla and would be downgrading relations with Israel, as well as ceasing military cooperation. He added economic ties might be downgraded as well.
Devutoglu reiterated the position of Turkey’s Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan that nothing less than a full apology by Israel, reparations for the 9 Turkish nationals killed during the IDF boarding action, and a termination of Israel’s naval blockade on Gaza would satisfy Istanbul.
The report concluded Israel’s blockade of Gaza was “legal and appropriate,” that the commandos were met with “organized and violent resistance” necessitating the use of force to defend themselves, and criticized Turkey for failing to stop the ships from setting sail in the first place.
At the same time it recommended Israel make ‘an expression of regret’ and compensate the families of those kills saying the level of force employed by the IDF was “excessive and unreasonable.”
It did not take into account that the commandos were armed with ‘pneumatic guns’ and live fire was only employed when those proved insufficient to dissuade the lynch mob that confronted them aboard the Mavi Marmara.
Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said Israel will do no more than ‘express regret.’

Michael Kellogg. The Russian Roots of Nazism: White Émigrés and the Making of National Socialism, 1917–1945. (New Studies in European History.) New York: Cambridge University Press. 2005. Pp. xiii, 327. $75.00. With this fascinating, meticulously researched, and highly detailed new study, Michael Kellogg intends to fill a perceived gap in the historiography of the origins of National Socialism. According to Kellogg, historians have failed to do justice to the crucial influence of monarchist Russian émigrés on the development of Adolf Hitler’s worldview and political goals after World War I. Using materials in Russian state and military archives not previously accessible to Western scholars, as well as multiple sources from all the major German archives, Kellogg has written the first history in English of “Aufbau (translated as Reconstruction): Economic and Political Association for the East,” a secretive conspiratorial organization centered in Munich, manned and directed primarily by White Russian émigrés, and dedicated to the overthrow of both the Weimar Republic and the Russian Bolshevik government and the restoration of authoritarian or monarchist regimes in Russia and Germany that could form a united front against the Entente powers. Its leader, the Baltic German officer Max von Scheubner-Richter, and fellow-Aufbau member Alfred Rosenberg, linked the virulently antisemitic and anti-Bolshevik Russian émigré community with Hitler’s National Socialists in a symbiotic relationship. Kellogg carefully recounts the organization of Aufbau in 1921 as the center of counterrevolutionary activity shifted from Berlin to Munich, where the Kapp Putsch had been successful in installing an authoritarian government while it failed in the same objective in the national capital. Scheubner-Richter played a leading role in the planning and execution of the Hitler-Ludendorff Putsch in 1923, in which he was the most prominent of Hitler’s followers to lose his life. 1 According to Kellogg, it was Russian and Ukrainian monarchist émigrés who brought to the Nazi worldview the apocalyptic, religiously inspired, antidemocratic, antisocialist, antisemitic conspiracy theory most dramatically manifested in the fabricated Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which was widely disseminated by the völkisch press in Germany after World War I. Relying on the pioneering research of German scholar Michael Hagemeister, Kellogg refutes some details of the version of the origin of the Protocols offered in Norman Cohn’s Warrant for Genocide: The Myth of the Jewish World Conspiracy and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (1967), according to which the manuscript was originally written in French by operatives of the tsarist Okhrana. A compilation of fictional texts already published in Russian as early as 1903, the Protocols were brought to Germany by disgruntled Ukrainian monarchists in 1919. Their conspiratorial fantasies and rabid anti-Bolshevism merged with redemptive völkisch and Christian antisemitism to produce the specifically Nazi ideological brew. The advantage of a Jewish conspiracy thesis for the German radical right was that it could plausibly present communism as closely related to Western liberal capitalism, despite the fact that the victors of World War I stood in mortal antagonism to the Soviet system as well.
