Blurring Distinctions in “Crimes Against Humanity”

Secretary of State John Kerry appropriately criticized Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan for characterizing Zionism as “a crime against humanity.”

The original comments listed Zionism as one such crime along with fascism, anti-Semitism and… “Islamophobia.”  Fear of Muslim fanaticism may be appropriate or inappropriate, but grouping such concern with fascism and anti-Semitism, with their millions of murdered victims, is a ridiculous distortion.

Meanwhile, dictionary definitions of “Zionism” specify “a policy for establishing and developing a national homeland for the Jews.” In other words, the leader of the most powerful of all 50 Muslim states slams any desire for a single Jewish state as inherently criminal. Turkish nationalism may be obnoxious, but no one would call such pride a “crime against humanity”—even after genocide in 1915 that slaughtered nearly two million Armenian Christians and represses Turkey’s Kurdish minority to this day.

    What is absurd is how these pro-Jewish columnists conflate Zionism with Judaism, and then say that anyone critical of Zionism is anti-Semitic. Zionism is real witches’ brew of xenophobia, racism, ultra-nationalism, and militarism that places it way outside of a “mere” nationalist context. And the irony here is that the Jews are the ones pushing to transform Europe into a multicultural cesspool (And they admit it!) Barbara Lerner Spectre, who runs a government-funded Jewish study group in Sweden, makes the following remarkable statement-remarkable because she does not attribute anti-Jewish attitudes to irrational prejudices or even Muslims who hate Israel. Instead she says that it’s because of the “leading role” played by Jews in the movement toward multiculturalism.

    She said, “I think that there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not let learned to be multicultural. And I think that we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.” So the Zionist message is essentially this. “We need every other nation to be multicultural but we can’t have that in our camp. Let us ruin your country with open borders and forced immigration (even illegal), while we simply deport all of our unwelcome guests.”

    And trying to compare Turkish nationalism with that of the Zionists is completely absurd. In fact, it’s far beyond comparing apples to oranges. Yes, the Armenian people suffered a holocaust perpetuated by the Turkish government. But that was a long time ago, and unlike the Zionists, they’re not forcing their indigenous people to live in Nazi-style death camps at this time. And what about the 100 million Christians killed by the Russian-Jewish Czars in the Judaic Russian Holocaust? Where is their multi-billion dollar Holocaust museum? Don’t they deserve one just as much (or more) than those who suffered a 6 million people holocaust? The answer is obviously, yes. But unfortunately, most Americans have never even heard of this holocaust because they have only been taught revisionist history (which favors the Jews). The kids in our schools are being bombarded with constant Holocaust propaganda but are told nothing about any of the other holocausts that this world has suffered through. They even think (as I once did) that the word “holocaust” only refers to what Hitler did to the Jews.

    And now Steven Spielberg is out on tour to push “holocaust awareness” to innocent children and at the same time promote his mostly fictional story’s (movie) re-release on Blu Ray. Has he no shame? Plus, his movie is R-rated and contains graphic nudity (including naked children), so why is this guy even being allowed to discuss it around children? It is absolutely disgusting!
