Title: Zionism, supremacist doctrines and
In his May 2, 2003 post with the title "Re: A SECRET
blueprint for US global domination - four issues to discuss
seriously about the historiography of world systems theorizations,"
Mark Douglas Whitaker <firstname.lastname@example.org> raises "the
issue of religion, particularly in world systems" and "the
Israel/Zionist question: unquestioning acceptance of 'whatever Israel
does' because of the anti-Semite card being thrown. Academic fear
guiding speaking up more than anything, or out of concern of fanning
the flames of the world's very real anti-Semitism or fear of being
associated with it by accident."

I am one of those academics who had suffered covert, and
sometimes even overt, persecution after attending in the 1970s the
meetings of a society of Jewish-Palestinian friendship, consisting of
progressive Jews and Palestinians who were trying to help resolve the
Israeli-Palestinian issue in a peaceful and just way. When I
approached, soon after attending some of those meetings, my Jewish
friends and colleagues at the University of Toronto, and tried to
convince them to join the society, or at least publicly express their
disapproval of the unjust Israeli policies, I was either ignored, or,
the issue of "anti-Semitism"
This issue has become since World War II an emotionally highly
charged one, due to incessant Zionist propaganda, largely based on the
exploitation of the memories of the holocaust of European Jews during
World War II. The anti-Jewish attitude incorrectly labeled
"anti-Semitism" (since he Arabs are as Semitic as the Jews)
has become unlike any other social attitude directed against a
political, religious, racial, national or sexual group - such as it is
the case with "anti-communism," "anti-capitalism,"
"anti-lesbianism," etc. In a recent
Amazon.com review of the book Zionist Connection: What Price
Peace by the anti-Zionist Jewish writer Alfred M.
Lilienthal it is pointed out that "[t]he fear of being labeled
'anti-Semite' is the main weapon used by Zionists to silence their
critics." This carefully nurtured emotional connotation of
the term "anti-Semitism" distinguishes it from terms
describing the many socially harmful attitudes directed in North
America against Hispanics (known also as "Latinos"), against
African Americans (once addressed as "Negroes"), and against
Native Americans (still called "Indians"). All this despite
that fact these three last racist attitudes have resulted in great
suffering for members of those "minorities," and in the
almost complete extermination of the last "minority" (which
once inhabited the entire North American continent), constituting in
both numbers of murdered people as well as the number of destroyed
cultural heritages the greatest of all holocausts in the history of
humankind (cf. American Holocaust by D.E.
In North America any explanation of the special status enjoyed
by the term "anti-Semitism" that is provided by a Gentile
scholar is bound to be dismissed by many Jews as being itself
"anti-Semitic." It is therefore advisable to turn to
reputable Jewish scholars who have had the courage to confront the
basic facts, and state them publicly.
As a son of Holocaust survivors and a noted academic, Norman
Finkelstein carries all the necessary credentials, although his
courageous stand - which he shares with some other exceptional
Jewish scholars, such as Noam Chomsky, Israel Shahak, Israel Shamir,
Alfred Lilienthal, etc.- has apparently earned him in Zionist and
elitist Jewish circles the title of a "self-hating Jew." Of
course, if this peculiarly Zionist attitude were carried to its
logical conclusion by other nations and religious groups, any German
critic of the "master race" aspirations advocated by the
Nazis would have to be labeled a "self-hating German," any
Catholic critic of the anti-abortion ideology of the Vatican would be
declared a "self-hating Catholic," and so on, and so
One of the things that Finkelstein has done in his recent
writings was to dispel the myth of the Jews being perpetual
"victims." In particular, he states the following: "As
the anti-Semitic barriers quickly fell after World War II, Jews rose
to prominence in the United States. According to Lipset and Raab, per
capita Jewish income is almost double that of non-Jews; sixteen of the
forty wealthiest Americans are Jews; 40 percent of American Nobel
Prize winners in science and economics are Jewish, as are 20 percent
of professors at major universities; and 40 percent of partners in
leading law forms in New York and Washington. The list goes on [in the
book Jews by Lipset and Raab]. Far from constituting an
obstacle, Jewish identity has become a crown to that success."
(Finkelstein, The Holocaust Industry, pp. 32-33)
The above statistics appear even more remarkable once it is
realized that the Jews constitute only a bit more than 2% of the
American population, so that, for example, Jews are represented
amongst "professors at major universities" in a proportion
that is ten times greater then their proportion in the general
The reasons for this unparalleled "success story"
provided by some Jewish writers echoes the "master race"
attitudes of their arch enemies, namely the Nazis. For example,
Finkelstein points out the following disturbing attitude among some
Jews: "Who could any longer dispute that Jews are the 'chosen'
people? In A Certain People: American Jews and Their Lives
Today, Charles Silberman - himself a born-again Jew -
typically gushes: 'Jews would have been less human had they eschewed
any notion of superiority altogether,' and 'it is extraordinarily
difficult for American Jews to expunge the sense of superiority
altogether, however much they may try to suppress it.' What an
American Jewish child inherits, according to novelist Philip Roth, is
'no body of law, no body of learning and no language, and finally,
no Lord ... but a kind of psychology; and the psychology can be
translated in three words: 'Jews are better.'" (ibid., p.
After having my own career as a scientist and academic
severely affected by the tactics of this type of supremacist Jews, I
eventually became curious about how widespread this self-aggrandizing
phenomenon is amongst North American Jews. Hence, I searched the
Internet under the topic "anti-Semitism" and its polar
To my surprise, I found an enormous amount of evidence which,
most regrettably, identifies a Jewish racism and anti-Gentilism
reflected in supremacist attitudes as being a rather wide-spread
phenomenon: in one publication after another certain Jewish American
authors overtly claim that the Jews are "unique,"
"distinct" and "superior," and that anti-Semitism
is not at all a natural reaction to such an incredibly racist and
arrogant attitude, but that it is rather due exclusively (cf.
Finkelstein's book, pp. 47-55) to the vile nature of Gentiles.
"It's always the Gentiles' fault," states
Finkelstein at one point (ibid., p. 61 - italics as in the
original) as if wondering at the chutzpah of the "Jewish
elites" that he criticizes.
The extremes to which this Jewish presumption that "Jews
are unique and distinct," and therefore entitled to special
privileges, unwittingly emerges from the following passage in the
memoirs of the famous Russian physicist and dissenter Andrei Sakharov,
which deals with his Jewish wife's experiences during their 1988
visit to Canada.
Academician Sakharov writes that in answering a question about
Jewish émigrés from the USSR, Mrs. Sakharov (known to the public
as Elena "Lusia" Bonner) stated the following:
"There's a tendency to regard all Jews leaving the USSR as
political refugees. That isn't right or fair. ... People can have
other, fully legitimate reasons to leave the USSR - a desire to live
well, to realize their potential. But why do such [Jewish] people have
a better right to call themselves political refugees and to get
special privileges than refugees from Vietnam, Cambodia, or Armenia?"
(Sakharov, Moskow and Beyond: 1986 to 1989, p.
Sakharov then describes how, as a result of this statement,
which dared to set Jewish émigrés on par with émigrés
belonging to other ethnic groups, his Jewish wife "was accused of
anti-Semitism and other mortal sins ... [and] warned that outraged
Jews would picket [her and his] appearances in Winnipeg."
(Ibid., p. 104)
In the face of such incredible chauvinistic Jewish arrogance,
is it any wonder that many non-Jews react with disapproval? That most
natural reaction is then self-servingly labeled by ethnocentric and
supremacist Jews as "anti-Semitism"!
But what is the evidence presented by representatives of the
"Jewish elites" in favor of the alleged Jewish
"uniqueness" and "superiority"?
Norman F. Cantor, described by his publisher as an
"eminent Jewish scholar, professor, and writer," has the
following to say in his 1995 book The Sacred Chain: A History of
the Jews: "The Jews, once emancipated and given opportunity
for mobility, were genetically so superior that market capitalism
could not accommodate some of this superior species." (The
Sacred Chain, p. 277). Thus, according to Professor Cantor, the
evidence of Jewish "uniqueness" and "superiority"
is genetic: "The Jews are a superior people intellectually and as
long as Jewish genes exist, the extraordinary impact Jews have had in
the twentieth century will continue indefinitely." (Ibid.,
Does that sound familiar? I am sure that Hitler would have
completely agreed with Cantor if the term "Jew" were
replaced in the above quotations with the term
However, the Jewish reviewers of Cantor's book find this
supremacist Jewish claims totally reasonable and acceptable. One of
them even states on its Amazon.com website the following:
"Th[is] book [by Cantor] is proudly Zionist, having many passages
that make you feel very proud of being a Jew and of our value and
achievement. ... Instead of seeing us as a holy race set apart, Cantor
has to ground his Zionism in the superiority of the Jewish race, using
the fact of the superior Jewish Intelligence. This is clearly liberal
Zionism and not orthodox." (Emphasis added.)
Thus, the only criticism raised against Cantor's
"powerful and deeply learned voice" is that it is not
sufficiently "orthodox," since Cantor regards the Jews
"merely" as being "genetically superior" to all
non-Jews, but not as being also a "holy race."
Well, not even Hitler had gone as far as to assert that the
Arians were a "holy race." But only one Jewish reviewer
finds the advocated thesis of Jewish supremacy at all objectionable,
as he states: "The only criticism I have of this important work
is when [Cantor] uses the phrase 'genetic intellectual superiority'
(p. 424) which I found disturbing in a work that includes a discussion
of the holocaust."
So, there we have it: Jews are "genetically superior,"
and therefore, by implication, deserve special consideration.
Of course, this attitude lies at the bottom of not only how the
Palestinians are being treated in the territories occupied by Israel,
but also of how Gentiles like myself are treated in North America by
supremacist Jews when they point out the injustices suffered by the
Palestinians. And, of course, it
surfaces very clearly when Jews and Gentiles compete in the academic
I find the claims of genetic Jewish intellectual superiority
as morally objectionable as I do find similar claims by Nazi scholars
in favor of Arian intellectual superiority, or those of white
supremacists in USA, who assert the superiority of Caucasians over
In fact, the parallels between such claims were unwittingly
underlined by Jewish scholar Raphael Patai, who, according to the Book
News review of his 1996 book The Jewish Mind, "[e]xamines the
Jewish mind and personality through three millennia, looking at the
ways six historical encounters between the Jews and other cultures
have left their mark on Jewish consciousness. Explores Jewish
intelligence and the phenomenology of special Jewish talents ..."
In the course of this "exploration of Jewish intelligence"
Patai tries to substantiate on genetic grounds his thesis of Jewish
intellectual superiority over all non-Jews by quoting the race theory
of a Nazi named Hans Gunther. Thus, in the "survival of the
fittest" scenario postulated by him natural selection has favored
over many centuries only the smartest Jews (ibid., pp. 304-305), and
the allegedly self-evident Jewish superiority is a natural consequence
of this "fact."
It is interesting to point out that the conviction of the
Puritan colonists of North America that they were "God's Chosen
People" and "superior" to the many native North
American nations (J. Wilson, The Earth Shall
Weep: A History of Native America , p. 92) has led during
the nineteenth century to a policy of virtual extermination of the
latter. For example, Stannard states on p. 120 of
his American Holocaust: "[Thomas] Jefferson's writings on
Indians are filled with the straightforward assertion that the natives
are to be given a simple choice - to be 'extirpate[d] from the
earth' or to remove themselves out of the American way. Had the same
words been enunciated by a German leader in 1939, and directed at
European Jews, they would be engraved in modern
I have already written about the nineteenth century genocide
of the Native North Americans by white Americans in my WSN post of
April 15, 2002, and I do not wish to repeat myself. I would, however,
like to point out that the present-day principles of PNAC have their
roots in supremacist American and supremacist Jewish attitudes, which
represent a great threat to the rest of humankind. I believe that it
is no accident that supremacist Protestant Americans and supremacist
Jewish Americans are predominant in PNAC. As Mark Douglas
Whitaker implies, certain types of religious attitudes condition
political behavior - and, as it is well-known, Bush Jr. provides a
prime example of that. The sorry present state
of many Native North Americans and many Palestinians should be a
warning to us all. And, of course, the invasion of Iraq
provides the prototype of how the PNAC blueprint for a US world
domination is going to be implemented in practice.
The website "Project for the First People's
set up on May 1, 2003 by Dr.
Robinson Rojas, contains links to PNAC online
publications, and also provides a number of articles dealing with
various aspects of PNAC. I believe that they are all worth reading
before CIA, Mossad, or some other similar organizations begin enacting
the part of the PNAC plan which "calls for the total
control of cyberspace to prevent 'enemies' using the Internet against
the US" - which, in plain language, means against the neo-cons in
power in US, and their close allies, the Zionists in power in
