“Anti-Semitic talk is not about Jews at all: it is the dominant ideology of Pax Americana. A Cuban who talks about anti-Semitism paves the road for the triumphal return of Meyer Lansky’s heirs to his island” – Israel Shamir answers to Lisandro Otero.

Dogs & Foxes

(Letter to Lisandro Otero)

by Israel Shamir


When the red-jacketed British gentlemen ride after fox upon green hills of Surrey, they call ‘yoicks’ to encourage their dogs; the Jews cry ‘anti-Semitism’ to encourage theirs. ‘Yoicks’ terrifies the fox; ‘anti-Semitism’ is the means to terrify opposition to the New World Order. It is their equivalent of a Papal bull proclaiming the crusade against heretics.

Like a contagious disease, their hate spreads farther and farther a field. Iraqis supported Palestinians, and their country was invaded. The Zionists’ latest enemy is France, for the French dared to object to their plans of taking over Iraq. On the tree-lined street I live on, a big parked Chevrolet carries the sticker ‘After Iraq, Chirac’. Israeli newspapers are full to the brim with dozens of anti-French reports and features. And whenever the Jews do not get what they want, they raise the spectre of their adversaries’ ‘anti-Semitism’.

Now the riders received an unexpected support from a noted Cuban intellectual Lisandro Otero. One would expect that a writer from the Island of Freedom will call for solidarity with the people of Palestine, Iraq, and France. He could understand that the talk about French anti-Semitism is orchestrated by the same forces that just a few months ago led their anti-Cuban campaign. TOP

But Otero preferred to pursue with the dogs, rather than run with the foxes. In an article disseminated by Cuban media, the ex-dissident writer repeats the standard accusations of Zionists against France. After paying standard left-Zionist lip service to ‘the policy of extermination of the Palestinians practiced by bloodthirsty Ariel Sharon’, he writes: “The attacks against the Jews have increased in an alarming way in France. Many of these acts of aggression are carried out by Muslims, of which there are in France between four and five million.” This is not very politically-correct, rather outright racist generalisation. Indeed, Noam Chomsky correctly stated that “Anti-Arab racism is so widespread as to be unnoticeable; it is perhaps the only remaining form of racism to be regarded as legitimate.” So legitimate that Otero uses it without noticing.

Just in case the Cuban writer Otero is a sincere man who was misled by the Zionist media, we shall briefly refer to his charge. No Jew was killed or severely wounded in France over the past ten years, though in the same period of time Zionist paramilitary gangs of Beitar established by Mussolini-worshipping Jewish fascist Jabotinsky attacked and wounded dozens of anti-Zionists and Muslims on the streets of Paris and Marseille. In France, hundreds of Muslims were wounded and killed in racist attacks often led by the Zionists’ fascist allies. TOP

In the Jewish state, Muslim Palestinians are prevented from worshipping in the holy site of al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem; Christian Palestinians were prevented from coming to the Holy Sepulchre this Easter by the Jewish army. But in France, not only Jewish worship is protected; the French Jews even celebrated the bloody ‘achievements’ of the Israeli army.

The mosques in France and elsewhere in Europe are frequently raided by police and ‘anti-terrorist’ squads; it would be a bloody miracle if the synagogues would provide total immunity for the Zionists. It could happen if the synagogues would stick to their religious practice and avoid political involvement, but the Jewish community centres and synagogues in France are used by Zionists as their recruiting grounds. There they collect moneys to build the Wall, and there they mobilise the French Jews to fight for the Jewish state and to support the US intervention in Iraq. TOP

Lisandro Otero may read a revealing article A Happy Compromise[1] by the Jewish Canadian philosopher, Professor Michael Neumann, who compares media coverage of attacks on Jewish property and attacks on non-Jews:

“When Jewish homes were spray-painted with slogans, the Globe and Mail (March 17th) put the story on about a third of page one, with a photo taking up over half the space above the fold. The story continued on page 8. As a Jew who has found that anti-Semitism is often manipulated for political purposes, I wondered why the story deserved such prominence. When a Pickering Islamic centre was spray-painted with slogans and set on fire - arson is a more serious crime than spray-painting - the story (March 26th) made the bottom of page 12. It got little more space than the page 8 continuation of the March 17th anti-Semitism story”.

Neumann concluded: the reports on hate crimes against Jews and other ethnic groups imply that the Jews are important, the rest are not.

In other words, the hullabaloo of ‘French anti-Semitism’ is made with mirrors, with the magnifying and distorting mirrors of the heavily Jewish media. Nothing new about that: a hundred years ago, amidst a storm of ‘Russian anti-Semitism’ reports, a Russian writer Alexander Kuprin, a friend of Jews, wrote in a letter[2] to his fellow-writer:

A ten-thousand-strong native tribe in the Far North cut their own throats for their deer died. Peasants of Samara eat earth out of starvation. Poland has been devoured, charming Crimea turned into a whorehouse, the ancient agriculture of Central Asia ruthlessly devastated, but amid this ocean of evil, injustice, violence and sorrow we, the Russian writers, scream about limitations imposed on Jewish dentists”. TOP

Lisandro Otero ventures to sum up two thousand years of Jewish-Christian relations according to the Zionist gospel:

With accent of Christianity, Emperor Constantine prohibited Judaic practices under penalty of death. Justinian prohibited the construction of synagogues. The triumph of Christianity in Europe institutionalised the racial segregation of the Jews”.

Be reasonable, Lisandro! The Church squashed in blood Albigensian and Arian heresies, destroyed Druids and other non-Christian cults in Europe, baptised Slavs and Balts by fire and sword; do you think it wouldn’t have been able to eliminate the Jews if it would wish so? The concept of ‘racial segregation’ was totally foreign to Christianity, and many Jewish converts became bishops and saints of the Church, from Torquemada to St John of God. On the other hand, racial segregation is a precept of Jewish faith, which forbids its adepts to mingle with non-Jews. We see it in the Jewish state, where non-Jews are walled up beyond Sharon’s Wall and intermarriage is not permitted.

The Zionist idea of ‘endless persecutions of Jews’ was invented in order to subdue the descendents of the medieval Jewish caste and to mobilise them for the goals of the Jewish elites. It caused paranoid tendencies among Jews. If you are a friend of Jews, do not encourage this paranoia. Anti-Semitism does not exist, Lisandro. The Jews are safe everywhere, as safe as anybody else on this unsafe planet; as safe as you are in blockaded Cuba, much more safe than Palestinians in Palestine, Iraqis in Iraq and Arabs in the US or France.    TOP

The Jewish fate does not worry me, for it is safe. Cuba’s future worries me much more. Your letter is a scary sign of the Cuban intelligentsia’s readiness to submit to the New World Order. I saw this in Gorbachov’s USSR, where the dismantling of socialism began with talk about ‘anti-Semitism’. Promoters of this paradigm had built relations with Israel, with the Jewish establishment in the US, and eventually brought Yeltsin to power. Western journalists based in Moscow had barraged their readers with reports of ‘growing anti-Semitism’ and of forthcoming pogroms. The Soviets could not even understand the accusation, for the USSR never knew racism of any sort. But the Soviet Jews were scared by the baseless but constantly repeated reports. Over a million of them formed beeline in front of the Israeli embassy; now they build the wall to imprison the children of Bethany. Their flight facilitated the collapse of the Soviet Union, and gave the national wealth of the Soviet people to the gang of predominantly Jewish Mafiosi in full liaison with their American kin and kith.

The same phenomenon was observed in other East European socialist countries. A Mossad agent of influence, media lord Robert Maxwell, supported their cultural elites. At first, they talked about anti-Semitism, then about the holocaust; in the end their privatised national assets were bought by George Soros, Marc Rich and Vladimir Gusinsky, while their soldiers were sent to kill Iraqis in Faluja.

Anti-Semitism talk is not about Jews at all: it is the dominant ideology of Pax Americana. A Cuban who speaks about anti-Semitism paves the road for the triumphal return of Meyer Lansky’s heirs to his island. You, Lisandro, left Cuba for a while as a political émigré and later came back, for you understood the misleading sophistry of Western media campaigns and said: “from afar, one sees better how things really are: the small things are small, and the big ones are big”. TOP

Have you changed your mind again? Do you wish your country to become another Haiti or Guatemala, a floating bordello off the shores of Miami? Visit the former Soviet republics, and you will find the end of the road that begins with talk of anti-Semitism. Even if you do not care much for the fate of workers and peasants and care only about intellectuals, you will learn that in these impoverished countries, writers and filmmakers can’t survive unless they obtain a grant from the Soros Corporation.

Life of intellectuals in the socialist states is much better than that of their brethren in the ‘privatised’ Third World. A good hairdresser, masseur, car repair mechanic or indeed a whore may look forward with hope towards post-Castro Cuba. For a writer, scientist, thinker there is no hope – in the Pax Americana, you will queue for American visa or sell bootlegged cigars. Instead of being called a dissident you will be called ‘a terrorist’. Your misplaced concern for the Meyer Lansky and Mort Zuckerman, Bernard-Henri Levy and the Cuban Zionist Jacobo Machover, for friends of Ariel Sharon and Shimon Peres will bring a new Batista to your island, unless stopped by some latter-day Barbudos.  

The time will come, rather sooner than later, when the American Empire will be defeated and dismantled, and with it, the paranoid talk of anti-Semitism will be gone for good. Then the descendents of Jews will live in peace and harmony with descendents of Spanish hidalgo, American rednecks and Palestinian fellahin. Your task, and the task of the Cuban intelligentsia is to bring the good ship of independent socialist Cuba into the safe harbour of future. For this purpose steer clear of Zionist rocks. TOP

Old prejudices reappear


Lisandro Otero

One of the worse consequences of the exterminating and criminal policy of Ariel Sharon against the Palestinians resides in the increase of anti-Semitism.

The attacks against the Jews have increased in an alarming way in France. The Minister of Education of the existing government announced it must fight this racism. A manual on republican ideas is being sent to all the schools and French institutions. 300 thousand copies of the pamphlet have been printed. In that guide it is recommended to read the Diary of Anna Frank, the Declaration of Rights of Man and to see a documentary on the Holocaust. The French authorities consider that this increase of attacks on Jews and synagogues and the profanation of cemeteries is due to the policy of Israel in the Middle East. TOP

Last week they burned the Jewish Centre in Toulon in the south of France as an answer to the murder of sheik Ahmed Yassin. Many of these aggressions are carried out by Muslims, of which there are in France between four and five million. In surveys teachers affirm that it is frequent that the adolescents show their rejection of the Jews. In several schools it is advised not to wear Jewish skull caps.

Anti-Semitism is not a new phenomenon. It is based on authors like Renan and Gobineau. Powerful industrialists, like Henry Ford, professed a dark anti-Judaism. Using Christianity as justification, Emperor Constantine prohibited Judaic practices under penalty of death. Justinian prohibited the construction of synagogues. The triumph of Christianity in Europe institutionalised the racial segregation of the Jews. Justinian prohibited the construction of synagogues. In the Council of Laterano of 1215 Jews were required to wear a yellow cloth to distinguish themselves. Luther proposed measures against the Hebrews. The triumph of Christianity in Europe led to the institutionalisation of the racial segregation of the Jews. German anti-Semitism intensified with the financial crisis of 1873, when Jewish bankers and moneylenders were accused of causing economic problems. Apocryphal texts like the protocols of the elders of Zion were spread and gave root to Hitler’s anti-Semitism. That prejudice had its root in the social visibility of the Jews, their leading position in finance, their politics and culture, their customary separation, their strong identity. These were factors in the isolation and separation of the communities where they resided.

The policy of extermination of the Palestinians practiced by Ariel Sharon has contributed to reactivation of anti-Semitism that was crushed after the Holocaust.  TOP
