Jewish Anti-Goyism and the Entrenched Divisions in the Palestine Movement

You forgot to include the Turks, the Vatican and the continent of South America. Where do they have the time to make so many enemies?

Well how else are you really going to solve the problem of antisemitism without also dissecting the problem of antigentilism? We know so very fucking much about antisemitism and that's a good thing indeed, but we know so very little about antigentilism. No point to even stop and ask why, we all know why - many reasons. If the (general) jews were serious about cutting off the oxygen to antisemitism, they're gonna have to also get serious about cutting off the oxygen to antigentilism too. Surely here lies a solution would produce incredible results. Some smart and righteous jew out there should be writing like some kind of a profound Twelve Step program for those hooked on antigentilism. They'll be doing the whole world a huge service - saving generations from an unnecessary self-defeating and detrimental malady. It would be nice to live in a world where gentiles didn't hate jews and jews didn't hate gentiles.

Which reminds me, I totally forgot to add Libya to Max's 'Got Wrong' list in my article. Got Weir Wrong, and got Egypt, Syria AND Libya wrong.

Not sure that's the case, Sean. I linked this article to MW/'Roundtable' thread - well it was there 2 days ago anyway. Perhaps W.Jones misunderstood annie's comment to him last week which was basically to 'take his gripe or whatever with Plato's somewhere else. Paraphrasing here. Sorry, too busy to find exchange between him and annie. I didn't understand her comment as 'Plato's is banned from MW', just that she didn't want him posting about being banned from Plato's on MW.

"Jew-haters". Which Jews is that? Can you be a bit more specific, please? Cuz it can get a bit confusing, you know. Zionist jews, anti-zionist jews, non-zionist jews, secular jews, religious jews, cultural jews, racist jews, non-racist jews, Arab jews, Russian jews, Brooklyn jews, self-hating jews, jewish jews - I mean there's so fucking many types of jews and there's even more than that - but you get my drift. I'll be clear here: any jews that support zionism and jewish Apartheid are the loathed enemy. And any christians, moslems, hindus, athesits and buddhists etc who support zionism are too the enemy. Goy-hater Schlomo Bagelbaum, you honestly think calling us "jew-haters" means anything this side of the 21st century and especially with israel drenched in Apartheid and the blood of innocents? Another cowardly smear-and-run op.

Like Robert Allen Zimmerman once sang: "I'm a poet, and I know it - hope I don't blow it!" Anyone guess what song this line is from? Heh.

Pepsi sent me this video - wanted to share it with everybody. Of course he probably knows more about the shadier side of Max Blumenthal than any of us do. [youtube]

So JVP et all want us to openly address antisemitism and every other form of racism on the planet except for antigoyism and antigentilism? Really? Why not? Would love an answer, an honest answer from a jvp member. I might be convinced by you, try me.

Cool article, Jay. Thanks for linking.

Oh my 'antigoyism' is apparently a legit single word without the hyphen:

That's not a rant, Denis, that's "We The People's" poetry.

"As far as Libya, Max was apparently involved in the pro-regime change dirty tricks his father was running. Max promoted the theory that Benghazi was a riot that broke out because of a mossad type film called The Innocence of Muslims. Max promoting that bogus narrative helped cover up Sidney/CIA/Mossad’s support of terrorists inside Libya, which toppled Qaddafi." - Pepsi

Thanks for sharing, W.Jones, and sorry about keeping you out but you know how it is. The new design I'm working on will come with a new email address specifically for the site - you'll be able to contact me directly when it's done soon. It's taken a little longer than expected, but hopefully within a week it should all be kosher. In the meantime, you can still comment and I'll be able to privately see it and access it through the Spam file.

Echi, There is no denying some of the draconian measures that Sisi has implemented - and this is utterly unacceptable in my book. I have said this much before on MW and here in passing on Plato's. But there is more to his presidency than is generally taken into consideration, and much more to the convoluted fabric of the Egyptian masses that should be considered too - much more history, geopolitics and realpolitik maneuvers that should also be considered when one is trying to form an overall and accurate view of Egypt. Egypt is a very complex topic, literally like playing ten-tier chess. One thing for sure though: I am not prepared to just stop using the word 'Egypt' on my own blog in case some random readers might suffer flasbacks and hotfushes to remember my epic Egypt battles at MW. I mean that's just ridiculous to expect of me. Really, whoever doesn't like me using the word 'Egypt' should just go home and have a nice cocktail or something and forget about Plato's. Good luck and good life to them. We can all put our Egypt cards down at a future Egypt post - no problem with me if people have a different take: I may learn something new from them. But opposing ideas must be put forth with respect and civility if the aim is to have a productive and informative exchange. All ideas are welcome at Plato's, but good manners are a required must. Focusing on ideas instead blogger personality is a more productive approach. " Perhaps I am especially sensitive, having lived under a military dictatorship for a longish time." Do tell. I look forward to the illumination. It may very well help me and others understand your political positions better, whether some of us agree with them or not. Thank you.
