Deconstructing the Zionist Myth by Ashahed M. Muhammad

Deconstructing the Zionist Myth
By Ashahed M. Muhammad

I shook hands with an 86-year old holocaust survivor the other day, and I don't feel any different. Don't misunderstand me, this is not being written to diminish the suffering of those placed in concentration camps and killed by those under the command of Adolph Hitler and through the enforcement of his henchmen.

I write this to point out the absurdity of those who have suffered unspeakable crimes, yet often find themselves diminishing and/or trivializing the suffering of others.

The holocaust survivor I shook hands with was author and outspoken political activist Dr. Hajo G. Meyer. He expressed his disgust at the moral collapse of Israeli society and by extension, world Jewry. This Dutch national of German-Jewish origin who survived Auschwitz said, “Zionism is contrary to Jewish ethics. Judaism was supplanted by the holocaust religion.”

I couldn't have said it better myself.

He went on to say it is “bad that the holocaust is used in order to defend crimes by Israel.”

No truer words have been stated.

Overwhelming evidence suggests that modern day adherents of Zionism have exploited the human tragedy of the holocaust in order to establish and maintain religious, economic, political and social supremacy over the indigenous population of Palestinians. In fact, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, sponsors of the “Never Again for Anyone” lecture tour—which provided me the opportunity to shake hands and talk with Mr. Meyer—in a statement, said the “Zionist narrative withstands neither historical nor moral scrutiny.”

Since using their own words has been very effective for us in The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews Volumes One and Two, let's continue this method as we demonstrate our points. What are the facts?

Theodor Herzl, the father of modern political Zionism (and in effect the State of Israel) and founder of the World Zionist Organization, in The Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry wrote that his desire was to “spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment...Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried away discreetly and circumspectly.”

Ze'ev (Vladimir) Jabotinsky is considered among the greatest Jewish statesmen of the twentieth century. As the founder of Revisionist Zionism, the political movement acting as a precursor to the modern-day Likud Party of current Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr. Jabotinski's staunch belief in armed Jewish action spawned bigoted ideological progeny including the Jewish Defense Organization. Yes, the same group that in the past chanted “Who do you want? Farrakhan! How do you want him? Dead!” Interestingly, he was also a journalist, and in The Iron Wall (1923) he wrote:

“A voluntary reconciliation with the Arabs is out of the question either now or in the future. If you wish to colonize a land in which people are already living, you must provide a garrison for the land, or find some rich man or benefactor who will provide a garrison on your behalf. Or else-or else, give up your colonization, for without an armed force which will render physically impossible any attempt to destroy or prevent this colonization, colonization is impossible, not difficult, not dangerous, but IMPOSSIBLE!... Zionism is a colonization adventure and therefore it stands or falls by the question of armed force.”

A garrison is defined as a body of troops stationed at a military post. Clearly, this course of action recommended by Mr. Jabotinsky has been adopted as policy since it is the current reality in the land called Israel.

Mr. Jabotinsky died in 1940, never witnessing the birth of the Jewish state in 1948.

According to the book, Ben Gurion and the Palestine Arabs (Oxford University Press, 1985) David Ben-Gurion, future first Prime Minister of Israel, was quoted in 1937 as saying, “We must expel Arabs and take their places.”

Israel's main airport is named in his honor. He is also referred to as the “Armed Prophet” and his memory is treated with great reverence by those who write and recount Israel's history.

The “high priest” of the holocaust religion, Elie Wiesel, said, “Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate—healthy, virile hate—for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German.” (Legends of Our Time, Appointment with Hate, NY, Avon, 1968, pp. 177-178).

Where is the forgiveness? In Judaism's Mishneh Torah, Teshuvah 2:10 it reads, “It is forbidden to be obdurate and not allow yourself to be appeased. On the contrary, one should be easily pacified and find it difficult to become angry. When asked by an offender for forgiveness, one should forgive with a sincere mind and a willing spirit. . . forgiveness is natural to the seed of Israel.”

In fact, the Simon Wiesenthal Center freely and frequently uses the term “Nazi-hunter” in their official correspondence and in many writings and reports. If one were to use the term “Slavemaster-hunter” that would be considered hate speech and even a threat, would it not?

Who is the real hater?

There a standard applied to Black people and our suffering that is not applied to anyone else who has suffered. We are expected to “move on” and “forget about the past” while others say “Never Again!” We are expected to “turn the other cheek” while others in the spirit of self-defense and self-determination created a nation-state in a land that belonged to others.

We could go into further discussion of the Judenrat, Jewish councils set up by the Nazis to send their fellow Jews to Death Camps. We could discuss the kapos who acted as Jewish informants, acting as stool pigeons against their fellow Jews in concentration camps who had the idea to resist their captors during the holocaust. We could discuss those wealthy Jews who negotiated to save their own skins, while the skins of other less wealthy Jews were used for lampshades and soap.

We could, but for right now, we won't.

I realize this seems strange because most have only heard (or more accurately—been taught) the “accepted” version of the Zionist drama, a sanitized version of events which states that because of the persecution they faced during WWII in Germany, there was the need for a refuge—a peaceful Jewish homeland—which became the state of Israel.

The previously mentioned International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network further stated, “To this end, Zionism both exploited and hinged upon the rise of Nazism, and later, the Holocaust, to transform what had been a small nationalist movement with little support (even among Jews) into one capable of achieving statehood, based on support from the United States and other imperial powers.”

Remarkably, in a stunning parallel, historically, the economic success of those same people has hinged upon the exploitation of Black people. Their control is maintained by using as their primary weapon, the dastardly appellation of “anti-Semite” against those daring to speak or write words critical of their errant ways.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has spoken courageously for decades, and, despite what is reported by unscrupulous writers, he has never advocated harming anyone of the Jewish faith, nor has he called for the boycott of Jewish-owned establishments.

These are false charges, designed to create a false view of The Minister, but now, facts are being brought to bear that are at odds with the false reality that has been created. Whether in Soweto, Warsaw, Egypt, Palestine or Chicago, where there is suffering and injustice, it is the responsibility of right-thinking and rational beings to speak up and do something about it.

In all cases, a review of previously accepted historical realities is necessary. As time goes on, new information becomes available challenging previously accepted views.

We are now living in the time of the revelation of all truths.

CHICAGO (FinalCall.com) - In his first interview since the successful Nation of Islam Saviours' Day 2011 convention, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan sat down in the studio with popular radio host and long-time friend Cliff Kelley on WVON-AM 1690 for a two and a half hour conversation.

A critically important portion of the discussion centered on the unrest in the North African country of Libya which the Minister spoke about for the very first time during his recent keynote address. He provided even more layered contextual understanding when questioned by Mr. Kelley March 10.Then the subject of Libya was raised. When the western media began reporting on Libya, Feb. 15, it seemed as if it was a foregone conclusion that Col. Muammar Gadhafi would be ousted in the country he has led for over 42 years. Now, nearly a month later, he remains in power.

On Mar. 12, the Arab League agreed on asking the United Nations to impose a no-fly zone over Libya, days earlier, the African Union voted against it.

Al-Arabiya reported Mar. 14 U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Paris to sit down with Foreign Ministers from Russian, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. A no-fly zone plan is reportedly being presented to NATO on Mar. 15, according to Secy. Clinton.
It is no secret that the Nation of Islam and Minister Farrakhan have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with the Libyan leader for decades. The United States has long opposed Col. Gadhafi and attempted to force him out of office even bombing his country during the Reagan administration, Min. Farrakhan noted.

The Minister blasted President Obama and Secy. Clinton for their arrogance in meddling in another sovereign nation's affairs and publicly recommending regime change.

Min. Farrakhan instructed Americans to look beneath the surface to see who stands to benefit from the unrest, and warned Pres. Obama to be careful of the words coming from advisors lobbying him to move in with military forces to depose Col. Gadhafi.

“Well, today our dear brother (Obama) has to be very, very careful in this decision that he and his Secretary of State, and [French President Nicolas] Sarkozy and [British] Prime Minister [David] Cameron and others are planning. They would love to go into Libya and kill Brother Gadhafi, and kill his children as they did with Saddam Hussein and his sons, Qusay and Uday. You must remember, dear people of America, that whenever government wants you to think and act in a certain way that would bring justification to an action that they are already planning to make, they must make the person that they hate a ‘boogey man,' ” he said. Col. Gadhafi, who led a bloodless coup against a U.S. ally over 40 years ago, has seen constant negative publicity and was once called the “Mad Dog of the Middle East” by American leaders and analysts.

People unhappy with government are not solely in Libya, he pointed out. Many are unhappy with Mr. Obama, he said.

The U.S. government has a long history of deposing leaders of other nations in order to get natural resources, more specifically—oil, he continued, saying the imperialistic forces are not interested in saving those being killed, it is just a “noble motive to hide your (the U.S. government's) wicked agenda!”

“When George W. Bush was president, he said they wanted regime change in Iran, in (North) Korea regime change—how do you get regime change America? How do you do that? Congress, the Congress of the United States, voted to spend $150 million to replace the government in Iran that America doesn't like, so they send their agents in to work among the dissatisfied. So when they had this election, and the people in Iran rose up, they have legitimate grievances, all right—but stimulated from the outside,” Minister Farrakhan continued. “Well, what about Libya? How much money is being spent to arm the so-called rebels? They're dissatisfied! Well, what is their dissatisfaction about? Do they (Libyans) have jobs? Yes. Do they have food? Yes. Has Gadhafi used the oil money to build Libya? Yes. Did Gadhafi use oil money and discover water under the Sahara Desert, and brought that water to the surface; and brought water from Benghazi all the way to the border almost of Tunisia? Did he impose farming in the desert so that they could feed their own people? Yes. Are there billions of dollars that he's spending building homes, building apartments for his people? Yes. So something is under this!” said Min. Farrakhan.

“Is it that you're (U.S. officials) so concerned over the blood that is being shed in Libya, when you looked the other way when the Israeli Defense Force was bombing the innocent people of Gaza, unarmed men, women and children? … You looked the other way when the Israeli Defense Force went into Lebanon thinking that they were going to have an easy victory, then you had to come out with your tail between your legs?”
Min. Farrakhan said Col. Gadhafi has been investing money in Africa, enjoys international friendship, and should not be killed simply because he is not America's friend.

“Now, I want to warn you, in the Name of Allah, that this is more complex than what you think! Go into Libya if you want to. The Libyans do not want foreign occupation on their land. And when you make that kind of move, if you're not careful, you'll unite the Libyan people against you!”

Inside America members of the Branch Davidian religious sect were killed in 1993 in Waco, Texas, by federal law enforcement, while men, women and children of the MOVE organization were killed when police bombed their home during a 1985 standoff in Philadelphia, he said. Current American outrage is nothing but hypocrisy, the Minister said.

To President Obama, Minister Farrakhan delivered a pointed warning: “Don't let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world. They don't like the way you handled (former Egyptian President Hosni) Mubarak! They don't like the way you're handling the situation in the Arab world! So I would advise you to be careful—and move with wisdom and skill.

And then, Min. Farrakhan offered Pres. Obama some divine advice.
“Why don't you organize a group of respected Americans, and ask for a meeting with Gadhafi? You can't order him to step down, and get out—who the hell do you think you are, that you can talk to a man that built a country over 42 years, and ask him step down and get out? Can anybody ask you? Well, well there's a lot, now, [that are] going to ask you to step out of the White House, because they don't want a Black face in the White House,” said Min. Farrakhan.

“Be careful, brother, how you handle this situation because it is coming to America! It has already started. Look in Wisconsin! Look in Ohio! Look at what's going on in your country! And remember your words because the American people are rising against their own government: It's not Muslims; it's not Black people! It's White militias that are angry with their government, and they are well armed. Are you going to tell them—‘Put your arms down, and let's talk it over peacefully?' I hope so. But if not, America will be bathed in blood, not because Farrakhan said so, but because the dissatisfaction in America has reached the boiling point. Be careful how you manipulate the dissatisfaction in Libya and other parts of the Muslim world,” he warned.


Bev Smith Refuses to Bow Down to Jewish Pressure (FinalCall.com)

Bev Smith refuses to bow down to Jewish pressure

(FinalCall.com) --Recently, several articles have appeared in the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle criticizing the decision by radio host Bev Smith and American Urban Radio Networks for inviting Minister Louis Farrakhan to a March 11th Town Hall Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA. to discuss issues affecting the Black community.

In writings appearing in the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle over the past two weeks, its Executive Editor Lee Chottiner, Jeffrey Finkelstein, president and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and David Ainsman, chairman of the Community and Public Affairs Council of the Federation, were all critical of Ms. Smith and Pittsburgh's Black leadership for inviting leaders to discuss Black issues that had not been pre-approved by the Jewish community. 

If they thought their veiled threats would undermine support for the event, their efforts have backfired. It is being reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that there are no more tickets available to the event and, according to a spokesperson for the August Wilson Center, the nearly 500-seat auditorium will be filled with an overflow room set up in order to accommodate even more people interested in solutions to the problems plaguing Pittsburgh's Black community. 

On March 4, Bev Smith, who is spearheading the town hall meeting themed “The Disappearing Black Community” wrote an open letter responding to Jewish pressure for inviting Minister Farrakhan to the March 11th gathering.
