How They Do It– ‘Stop calling it ‘Jewish’ terrorism’
Let’s stop calling those who have bombed, shot, or burned Palestinians ‘Jewish.’ Let’s call them what they really are–Israeli.
ed note–the ‘terrorists’ described herein–and indeed that is exactly what they are–follow the JEWISH religion. The JEWISH religion is very clear on this matter, as laid down in the various JEWISH holy books and JEWISH teachings that have served as the foundational basis of JUDAH-ISM now for thousands of years, to wit–
‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall save nothing alive that breathes…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy. You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…’–Book of Deuteronomy
Now, just for the sake of accuracy, lets highlight a few items listed therein from Deuteronomy, one of the main pillars serving as that aforementioned foundational basis of the JEWISH religion, which our esteemed hebraic author is obviously working feverishly to protect–
‘you shall slaughter them all…’
‘and utterly destroy them…’
‘you shall save nothing alive that breathes…’
‘You shall show them no mercy…’
And yet, just these few passages–taken from just one paragraph appearing in just one chapter of just one ‘holy’ book but which is repeated hundreds of times over and over and which serves as the foundational basis of the JEWISH religion known as JEWDAH-ISM, and yet we are supposed to put these glaringly apparent teachings, written in black and white ink and expressed in Kristol clear language, to the side and not equate this with the murderous and barbaric actions of the JEWISH STATE?
Israel is a country that is quick to appropriate every phenomenon or activity that takes place within it, from the success of its tech entrepreneurs (in whom the state did not invest even a single shekel) to the successes of its athletes (for whom the state did not provide even the most basic conditions for adequate practice). Even environmental disasters and car crashes are quickly turned into national events.
The kind of terrorism committed by the likes of Baruch Goldstein, Jack Teitel, or the Jewish Underground — which attempted to blow up the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the 1970s — is always defined as “Jewish terror,” never Israeli. This is true even when the terrorists are IDF soldiers, such as Danny Tickman, who opened fire on Arab-owned shops in Haifa, or David Ben Shimol, who fired a missile at a Palestinian bus, killing one and wounding 10 others. The same goes for the young Israelis (two of them soldiers) who were arrested last month for walking around Be’er Sheva and beating Arabs with clubs, knives, and metal bars.
We label these terrorist acts, committed by people who were raised and educated in Israel, “Jewish terror,” thus creating a buffer between us and them. In our internal cataloguing, we choose to view these as acts that stem from religious fanaticism, somewhere on the ISIS-Hamas spectrum, rather than as a part of normative Israeliness.
The photos published by the media of these terrorists, often showing them in kippot and tzitziot, only supports this kind of classification. Their despicable actions — tossing grenades into a family home, stabbing passersby, burning a teenage boy alive — turn them into monsters, the same kind of convenient image that comes to mind when we think of Palestinian terrorists. Only religion can turn people’s hearts into stone and make them act this way, we think. We tell ourselves that these Jewish terrorists are inspired by their Muslim counterparts, that they are nothing more than a few rotten apples in a healthy society.
We must remember, however, that the identity of these terrorists is not only religious — it is also national. Jewish terror in the United States, France, or Israel contains unique characteristics, as every place has its own circumstances. In Israel, many of the terrorists were born, raised, and educated here. The terrorism we label “Jewish” is actually as Israeli as Bamba, Waze, and the IDF.
Blue and white terrorism
We have a tendency to ascribe these actions to religious extremism, yet the historical roots of Israeli terrorism — whose origins lie with the Haganah, Etzel, and Lehi, what we refer to today as “underground organizations” — were led and run almost entirely by secular Jews. Their impetus, back then as today, was no less national than religious. The holiness of the land, racial purity, and national sovereignty — the ideas on behalf of which terrorists carry out their acts. Although they wear a religious mask, it is not difficult to recognize the nationalist layer beneath. The fact is that we have yet to see ultra-Orthodox yeshiva students carry out terrorist acts against Arabs. Bereft of a nationalistic motive, they spend their time studying torah and confronting Haredi IDF soldiers.
The fact that Israeli society condemns these acts of terror is a positive thing, however we must not delude ourselves into believing that this is anything beyond a ritualistic act. The average Israeli politician will express his or her deep disgust with the burning alive of 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, but will remain silent after the IDF blows up a school in Gaza, killing 20 children. The disgust, then, is not about the killing of innocents — which is, after all, routine here — but as a response to the willingness of Israeli civilians to challenge the IDF’s monopoly on violence. As for us, we must not be mistaken: the rhetoric may be Jewish in content, but the violence is all blue and white.
