Deconstructing the Zionist Myth
By Ashahed M. Muhammad
I shook hands with an 86-year old holocaust survivor the other day, and I don’t feel any different. Don’t misunderstand me, this is not being written to diminish the suffering of those placed in concentration camps and killed by those under the command of Adolph Hitler and through the enforcement of his henchmen.
I write this to point out the absurdity of those who have suffered unspeakable crimes, yet often find themselves diminishing and/or trivializing the suffering of others.
The holocaust survivor I shook hands with was author and outspoken political activist Dr. Hajo G. Meyer. He expressed his disgust at the moral collapse of Israeli society and by extension, world Jewry. This Dutch national of German-Jewish origin who survived Auschwitz said, “Zionism is contrary to Jewish ethics. Judaism was supplanted by the holocaust religion.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
He went on to say it is “bad that the holocaust is used in order to defend crimes by Israel.”
No truer words have been stated.
Overwhelming evidence suggests that modern day adherents of Zionism have exploited the human tragedy of the holocaust in order to establish and maintain religious, economic, political and social supremacy over the indigenous population of Palestinians. In fact, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, sponsors of the “Never Again for Anyone” lecture tour—which provided me the opportunity to shake hands and talk with Mr. Meyer—in a statement, said the “Zionist narrative withstands neither historical nor moral scrutiny.”
Since using their own words has been very effective for us in The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews Volumes One and Two, let’s continue this method as we demonstrate our points. What are the facts?
Theodor Herzl, the father of modern political Zionism (and in effect the State of Israel) and founder of the World Zionist Organization, in The Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry wrote that his desire was to “spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment…Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried away discreetly and circumspectly.”
Ze’ev (Vladimir) Jabotinsky is considered among the greatest Jewish statesmen of the twentieth century. As the founder of Revisionist Zionism, the political movement acting as a precursor to the modern-day Likud Party of current Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr. Jabotinski’s staunch belief in armed Jewish action spawned bigoted ideological progeny including the Jewish Defense Organization. Yes, the same group that in the past chanted “Who do you want? Farrakhan! How do you want him? Dead!” Interestingly, he was also a journalist, and in The Iron Wall (1923) he wrote:
“A voluntary reconciliation with the Arabs is out of the question either now or in the future. If you wish to colonize a land in which people are already living, you must provide a garrison for the land, or find some rich man or benefactor who will provide a garrison on your behalf. Or else-or else, give up your colonization, for without an armed force which will render physically impossible any attempt to destroy or prevent this colonization, colonization is impossible, not difficult, not dangerous, but IMPOSSIBLE!… Zionism is a colonization adventure and therefore it stands or falls by the question of armed force.”
