More than one-in-four adults, 26 percent of those surveyed, are deeply infected with anti-Semitic attitudes
To what does that refer? To Arabs who have for 2000 years hated Jews as part of Islamic culture?
No, this is the point. This figure refers to the whole world and is the figure produced by the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) as in “NEW YORK, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today released the results of an unprecedented worldwide survey of anti-Semitic attitudes. The ADL Global 100: An Index of Anti-Semitism surveyed 53,100 adults in 102 countries and territories in an effort to establish, for the first time, a comprehensive data-based research survey of the level and intensity of anti-Jewish sentiment across the world”.
As gold relates to capitalism and is the fall back money in periods of crisis so Antisemitism is the fall back position of humanity in a period of class crisis.
I do not think that the Jews I know have internalised this because the starting point for so many nation minded people (which I support that is I support nation hood) is to dny class and class issues never mind the overall class structure of society.
As life gets ugly under capitalist crisis conditions (youth in Spain 70 per cent unemployment with no perspective of Spanish capitalism resurrecting itself) the fall back position is always ugly.
There is no leadership at all among the Spanish youth to educate them about history…I emphasise NONE, that is NO LEADERSHIP
Let me establish a few truths. In general Jewish people cannot face up to reality. The reality of their history is just too painful (visit again Levin The Oslo Syndrome)
None did! Ben Gurion did not prepare at all for 1948. Begin became dispirited with the death of his wife. Sharon Mon Dieu! Netanyahu seeks comfort of a silly woman!
There is nothing today. The Knesset type of politics is paralysed and is paralysing the Jews. The religious Jewish answer heads in the direction of imposing a dictatorship not over the Arabs but over the Jews, that is over the Jewish mind, but the Jews were great because their minds were free.
This is the problem. Jews are paralysed. The alcoholic must first accept that he is before he can change. In that regard Jews must accept that they are paralysed totally before heading for a solution.
TO SUM UP
There needs to be a new type of party and leadership. Everything needs to be questioned. I would rule out ANY PERSON who is stupid enough to use in their language this Israeli left and Israeli right terminology. It means nothing and is abusive towards historical understanding.
How did Jews perish in the Nazi Holocaust? How did it happen? How did Hitler seize the power? Who did Hitler first place in concentration camps and was it the Jews? Why did Islam and the Nazis morph in those years.
Or I will put this in a different form. There must be no mental block placed that will stop us learning about these things.
