Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism are Different

Anti-Zionism is not the same thing as anti-Semitism. It is worse. Before the reestablishment of Israel and prior to the holocaust, anti-Semitism was openly rampant on every corned of the globe. Even in countries like America many private and government institutions had policies in place to prevent Jews from holding top tier positions. In many cases Jews were barred entry into universities and country clubs. Of course it was far worse in Europe, but this is well known already. Pre-holocaust anti-Semitism was openly practiced and Jew hatred was preached both publicly and privately. In those days our Western enemies readily admitted that they wanted us dead. There were no secrets in that regard. If the non-Jews let us live at all, our continued heartbeat was only tolerated if we agreed to be their serfs. We had to publicly proclaim the non-Jews to be our masters. Of course, after the holocaust, all of this changed. Western civilization no longer found pride in being called anti-Semites. It was no longer vogue to be openly anti-Jewish. It seemed as though the enlightenment of human kind had finally taken hold. Yet this was not to be the case. It’s not that they changed their opinions of us. It’s simply that they no longer could hate us without first fabricating a justification. Such was born the ‘enlightened’ Jew-hater. You see, when we lived under the rule of their thumb, they eventually realized that they would never be able to kill, expel or convert us all. Therefore they settled for our servitude between the pogroms and forced conversions. We became nothing more than seldom tolerated serfs. When the dust of the holocaust settled and the nation of Israel was reestablished, the anti-Semites found themselves in quite a quandary. They still hated us, and they still wanted us to feel the tips of their swords, but with self-determination we were out of their immediate grasps. Killing Jews was no longer as easy as walking over to the local Jewish ghetto. This is where anti-Zionism came to their rescue. The anti-Zionist does not want us to return to pre-‘67 borders, they want us to return to servitude. They miss the extra income of the Jew-tax and the helpless scapegoats living amongst them to blame for their shortcomings. They are mad as hell that we are once again a nation with our own country, and they will say anything and do anything to turn us into villains. Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism because behind both theologies exists the tie that binds. Just blame the Jews and it will all get better. Anti-Zionism is simply a layer of hatred-justification that hides anti-Semitism. Yet, anti-Zionism is worse because it not only encompasses every aspect of anti-Semitism, but it also adds the fuel of their attempt to send us back into exile by stealing our holy land. It’s worse because it is a type of hatred that we can stop, and yet our Israeli leadership plays the game with them. They have went from being Zionists themselves to being the leaders of anti-Zionism. Anti-Zionism for the non-Jew is a reason to hate that which he will never be. Anti-Zionism for the Jew is a reason to hate that which he will always be. A Jew. (to be continued…)

Anti-Zionism is a term used frequently in the Arab world as well as liberal Western media. I'm not quite sure whether this is just an alternative term for anti-Semitism but I do agree that anybody who considers himself "anti-Zionist" is inherently anti-Semitic. Hence, considering one worse than the other doesn't make sense since they're one and the same.

Well, the main point i will hit on when I have time to continue it is that in the pre-holocaust age of open anti-semitism, mass-media was unheard of. When an anti-Jewish rumor would pop up, people simply took it at face value.

In this age where people tag themselves "anti-Zionists", mass-media could easily convince the haters that their racism is built on lies... yet they choose to ignore the truth. I mean, we have the internet, access to newspapers world wide, television, radio, etc, etc.

The so-called enlightened age we live in not only displays all of the traits of blind anti-semitism, but it furthers the agenda of hatred because they have the resources to dispell their hatred. Yet they choose to accept it at face value anyway.

There's more to it, but I will save the rest for the next blog post.
