 Most hateful murderous Israeli politicians

Naomi Wolf posted on FB this Dec.30, 2014

I am often criticized here for being a ‘traitor’ to my fellow Jews.

Which leads me to wonder — what is the right definition of family? Of neighbor, of brother and sister? Surely those to whom we are morally accountable, yes?

Surely those with whom we choose to have a relationship of justice and compassion, not a matter mere proximity, mere ethnicity?

This may annoy the people I am already annoying even more, but I can’t avoid referencing that rabble rousing paradigm-inverting marginalized-people-identified rabbi Jesus (many scholars today portray the historical Jesus as a radical egalitarian rabbi firmly in the Jewish social justice tradition).

So Jesus is talking to a lawyer (or as a lawyer and in fact he taught jurisprudence in Saida, Lebanon).

Remember that’s a certain man’ who was beaten would have been Jewish to this Jewish audience and the Samaritan would have been a member of a despised, marginalized, one-down, untouchable “other” out-group at that time:

`”But [the lawyer], desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?”‘…

Jesus answered, “A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side.

But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, ‘Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.’

Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbour to him who fell among the robbers?”
He said, “He who showed mercy on him.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”‘

To me this Jewish radical teacher was saying, your neighbor and your brother or sister are those who treat you with humanity, and vice versa.

Which seems not a betrayal of Judaism — for me to agree with this — but a fulfillment of the kind of Jewish ethics I was taught growing up — also universal ethics.

The zionist systematic assassination policy is very well known. "israel" has been using Death Squads even before it was established and once it was terrorist groups of Lehi, Irgun, and Stern, even a long time before they (the zionist terrorists) assassinated the Swedish noble and diplomat Bernadette . It’s a Zionist systematic policy that was established on the assassination mentality, and the assassins mostly become the top leaders (war criminals) of "israel" like Begin,  Shamir, Sharon, Barak, Livni, Bennett, Shaked and the list is endless.<br />

The Zionist systematic assassination policy is very well known.

“Israel” has been using Death Squads even before it was established. The Zionist movement had several terrorist organization during the British mandated power over Palestine such as Lehi, Irgun, and Stern.  They blew up the King David Hotel that was the headquarter of the British secret agency and terrorized many British officers.

The State of Israel assassinated the Swedish Count and diplomat Bernadotte .

It’s a Zionist systematic policy that was established on the assassination mentality, and the assassins mostly become the top leaders (war criminals) like Menuhin Begin, Shamir, Sharon, Barak, Livni, Bennett, Shaked and the list is endless.

An exchange I consider extraordinarily meaningful and precious:

Amal Abdallah:

“Naomi, each time I read your posts and the accompanying comments I feel as though I’ve been given a tall glass of chilled water after a century of walking in the desert, tired, thirsty, lonely & scared. I’m still lost but I’m not scared and you’ve quenched a little of my thirst. Thank you.”

Naomi Wolf:” Thank you. Very eloquent. I would love to understand more about this. By ‘walking in the desert’ do you mean because we were cognitively so far apart? Or do you mean something else?”

Amal Abdallah: “Yes Naomi Wolf, because for so long, too long, my people, their suffering, their loss, their humiliation, their tragedy has been and continues to be silenced and if spoken of, blamed on them. The only thing worse than having to go through the disaster of dispossession, exile and oppression is for no one to acknowledge what has been done to you and instead to view YOU as the dispossessed or the exiled
and the oppressor, the terrorists.

It’s completely Kafkaesque. This is not limited to Israel or Jews, their propaganda machine has been so effective, the world over including some newer generations of Arabs hold this view.

It is incredibly isolating for Palestinians.
Palestinians have felt deserted, that we walk alone in a surreal reality. When Israel talks about the threat of being pushed into the sea, it is the Palestinians that WERE literally pushed into the sea in the hundreds of thousands in 1947-48 ending up in refugee camps in Lebanon, Gaza and Egypt.

When Israel talks about the threat to their existence, it’s the Palestinians whose very existence has been threatened since the advent of Zionism and they’re not just threatened, 89 whole families in Gaza this past summer no longer exist. When Israel says, ‘they want to wipe us from the map’.

It is Palestine that HAS been wiped from the map. Israel claims Palestinians use their children as human shields, yet not a single shred of evidence exists to substantiate this claim (everyone has looked everywhere), instead evidence abound of Israel using Palestinian children and adults as human shields.

There’s reality and there’s the lie.
Although I do not seek to fulfill Godwin’s law but it’s hard not see the Israeli narrative as the Big Lie, so huge, told so often, everyone the world over believes it and Palestinians – a small nation – scattered in the desert, tired, thirsty, lonely, scared without the funds or the reach, has been trying to counter this lie and million other lies that followed for nearly a hundred years.

We are tired and many times driven to the point of a break in our sanity. Consequently, we appreciate the help, which has quenched our thirst for truth and justice just a little bit.

The best article written about this phenomenon is entitled, Why Israel Lies, Chris Hedges, Aug 3, 2014. http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/why_israel_lies_20140803
