Seeing that my first thread was closed because no one one could discuss Alan Dershovitz's fine article with out getting in the usual anti-semetic mode, let's try again.

Please read this article from this fine Harvard law professor:

I see nothing that would exempt people from being bigots just because they are teachers. A fellow in Alberta named Jim Keegstra taught his students that the Holocaust didn't happen He was also the mayor of Eckville. He did that for years before a parent brought it to the attention of the school board and the Alberta Teachers' Association. His certification was yanked by the ATA.

The "Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies" points out the prevasiveness of the problem worldwide. Some years back kids in an Austrian school were visiting a 'game' site. The player could put in the 'people' of his choice and run an extermination camp--and if I recall, there was the choice of Blacks, Muslims, Jews and Turks. This sick crap seems to have no end. I should point out that when it was brought to the attention of the school authorites, they blocked the site(s).

Martin,

As your last post was a genuine expression of opinion, it's worthy of rational discussion. So here goes!

1. I don't have sufficient knowledge of the situation in the US to agree or disagree with your comments on anti semitism there, tho' I have seen references to jews having difficulty in becoming members of certain country clubs and golf clubs. I have no way to know whether these are true or not.

2. I would suggest that you are in the same position in terms of your knowledge of my country. There are jews in every walk of life here from dustmen to MPs, and there is no problem for those of the Jewish faith in attaining to the highest positions.

Jew haters here are a tiny insignificant minority, and I haven't heard of any club or association that asks prospective members "Are you Jewish?", let alone turns they away.

I don't know where your info on British anti Semitism comes from, but I would suggest that they are less persecuted here than in Israel, where they run the risk of being blown up by suicide bombers.

Don T.

Subject: RE: BS: From Britain With bigtotry Part2
From: Don Firth

Don, there is probably no more actual anti-Semitism in the United States than there is, as you have described, in Britain. Here, too, Jews are in every level of society and in every level of politics (Joe Lieberman was one of the candidates for the Democratic nomination, but the fact that he wasn't nominated had to do with his stated policies, not with his religion). There may be a few pockets of anti-Semitism here or there in groups like the Ku Klux Klan, the American Nazi Party (with the death of George Lincoln Rockwell, I'm not sure that even exists anymore), or Aryan Nations, but these organizations are minuscule and powerless, and are regarded by all but themselves as a collection of sickos, psychopaths, and freaks.

When the Aryan Nations hold their annual parade in that great world metropolis, Hayden, Idaho (population in 2002, 9,885), rather than being cheered, the local townspeople usually greeted them with hoots, cat-calls, and unsanitary missiles. The locals regard this group as an embarrassment to the community, and have tried to deny them a parade permit, but legal eagles pointed out that this would be a violation of the First Amendment (which permits freedom of expression of all viewpoints, no matter how distasteful). Anti-Semitism in general is essentially non-existent, and when and if encountered, even if there are no Jews present at the time, such attitudes are usually met with scorn and vigorous admonishment.

Martin Gibson's claims of rampant anti-Semitism, whether here on Mudcat or in the country in general, stem less from reality and more from his contention that anyone who feels that Palestinians are human beings too and deserve to be treated humanely are, ipso facto "anti-Semitic."

This, of course, is nonsense. Oppression is never justified, no matter who does it. And if the Palestinians felt that they were getting a fair shake and that they actually had some hope, such things as suicide bombings would greatly diminish or cease entirely.

Subject: RE: BS: From Britain With bigtotry Part2
From: Don(Wyziwyg)T

No Martin, that's not quite ALL you have done.

You have indeed drawn attention to an instance of genuine concern. If the chain of events was as described, the action was indefensible, and the instigator should be subject to punishment for such action.

What I am objecting to is the several casual references to anti semitism being rife, and routine, in the UK.

I don't believe that you have sufficient knowledge of the UK to make such observations, and you certainly cannot extrapolate from one incident, however reprehensible, to that sweeping generality.

Please believe me when I say that sixty five years of living here, in a culture which includes a very large number of Jews, in all walks of life, does qualify me to say that I would be aware of any large scale animosity toward them. In the main, it just does not exist.

The BNP, and certain others who may hate Jews, are a very tiny proportion of the population of this country, and most of us work and socialise with members of our community, without necessarily becoming aware that they ARE Jewish, and certainly without being concerned if they are.

Sorry, don T.

I have no faith in what you are saying at all.

I posted an article and I have not reason to not believe it as I have quite a lot of respect for Mr. Deshowitz who has some pretty inpressive creditials while you have as far as I can see, zilch.

Nor do you know everyone in the UK and how they think.

As for Don Firth, he is another one who has no scope of the matter, nor has he ever been threatedned in his life with anti-semitism nor does he know if any but a very small handfull of people who are affected.

Dorry you two Dons. This article was written by someone very close to the subject of which neither of you are.

Martin Gibson has no way of knowing what scope I have on the problem, nor does he know the people I know. The son of a good friend (Jewish) lived in Tel Aviv for some years, and I've talked to him a lot on occasions when he returned to visited his mother here in Seattle (by the way, he's living in London, now, and likes it very much). And he is only one of many people of the Jewish faith I know and have had occasion to discuss things with.   Nor does Martin have any idea of any discrimination that I may have been subjected to.

Martin is quick to make pronouncements regarding people he does not know and about whom he knows nothing.

That's called "prejudice."

Don Firth,

Ditto.

I had already agreed with him on that one case, but still can't see where that gives rise to the belief that that kind of thing is rife.

And, of course, he, 3000+ miles away, would naturally know more about my country than I, who have lived there all my life.

My many Jewish friends and acquaintances will get a huge laugh out of this, when I tell them that they are being persecuted. It'll come as a big surprise to them.

None so blind.........

Don T, I am saying that Alan Dershowitz has a better handle than you do and even though you live in the UK, you have published nothing credible if anything at all on the subject, nor do you and Don Firth have any reputation what so ever as being experts in the subject.

Don Firth claims to be an expert on virtually every topic that comes up on Mudcat and is the original knows a little about some things and a whole lot about nothing.

In short, you are both just old men with very, very limited experience with Jews and have very little concept on what anti-semitism really is and how it can affect one's psyche.

I went to a school that was two thirds Jewish, I lived in a prodominently Jewish area of London for 35 years, had and still have many Jewish friends, none of whom is Mr. Deshowitz but many of whom have pretty impresive credentials too and they don't share your views of my country. A Harvard professor can have his views the same as anybody else, but it certainly doesn't mean he's right. By the way 99.99% of the population of this country, and I dare say yours, aren't published either, but it doesn't make them any the less knowledgeable.

That boycott is a success of the recent PACBI campaign based upon a spurious similarity between Israel and apartheid-South Africa. I wouldn't support such a boycott in this case.

The apartheid analogy, like the Nazi analogy, comes up a bit too often and too easily. Yesterday I read an interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the woman mentioned as the next victim on the breast of the Dutch filmmaker murdered by an islamist. She said that "the idea of multiculturalism that is the concept to treat all cultures as equal is a well meant form of apartheid" (her reasoning: (1) because it supports the segregation of men and women in the Muslim society and (2) because it supports the segregation of different subcultures in Europe).

Should we now boycott all Muslim countries as well as long as they do not give up the literalist interpretation of the Koran?

Such boycotts are usually stupid unless (1) the dislike of a regime is close to universal and (2) it is an economic boycott being able to force down a regime effectively (and not only to give some academics a good feeling).

Academic boycotts (and sport boycotts as well) are inherently silly and fly into the face of what one basic idea of science is. Should I for instance disregard a mathematical proof from an Egyptian colleague and write that the theorem...has not been proven yet? Should I disregard a warning about fatal side effects of a vaccination for it has been found by a colleague from Israel? Bullshit.

As Don Firth, whom I have always found to be quite knowledgeable and articulate, says, "Martin is quick to make pronouncements regarding people he does not know and about whom he knows nothing."

When Martin Gibson claims that the two Dons "are both just old men with very, very limited experience with Jews and have very little concept on what anti-semitism really is and how it can affect one's psyche," he's just doing it again, proving the point. He has no way of knowing what their knowledge and experience is. And when he goes on to accuse Strollin' Johnny of being a Nazi and says, "Go fuck your mother," that tells you all you need to know about Martin Gibson.

Martin, if people regard you as a thoroughly hateful and contemptible person, it's because you are a thoroughly hateful and contemptible person, not because you are Jewish.

Thanks for the link to that article, freda. I'm going to google for more information on her. I especially like:


"It is important to me as a social justice activist to not only speak out against any kind of oppression or bigotry against Jews, but also to speak out for justice for all people, including speaking out against ant-Arab and anti Muslim racism. And this is an obligation, in part, because as Jews, we know what it's like to be targeted, deported, and attacked.

"In that same vein, just as I will always stand against real antisemitism-the blanket condemnation of Jewish people just for being Jews-I don't believe that criticizing Israeli policies is inherently antisemitic. In fact as progressive Jews we are called upon to speak out against any human rights abuses against any people; and to speak out against any violations of international law including violations by the U.S. government."

No problem MG .... I fear too many people are blind these days. Decrimination is discrimination ... period.

As to Kinky Freidman singin "They ain't making Jews like Jesus anymore" ... if they did, he'd be crucified again.

Making comparisons between South Africa's occupation of Namibia and Israel's occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem is spot on accurate, and my guess is that the reason people like Mr. Dershowitz are making the anti-Semitism charge against the the boycott is because it just might work (as it did in the case of South Africa).

And you are right, number 6... intolerance in all of its forms is definitely on the rise in the world today.

It's obvious that the British university organization which advocated boycotting Israeli universities is unjustified in this, as I've said earlier.

It's equally obvious that to extrapolate a widespread anti-Semitism from this is also unjustified.

I've been avoiding this thread, beacuse MG is such an obvious foaming loony that he's incapable of responding other than tribally.

But the article he pointed out was also an utterly simplistic and one sided report of the situation. The proposed boycott was NOT antisemitic. It was in protest against the oppression of the inhabitants of the occupied territories by the state of Israel.

You do nobody any favours if you automatically assume that all criticism of Zionism indicates a hatred of Jews. Not even to Israelis, who eventually, one way or another, will have to live alongside their neighbours. They can build a fence, but what next? Put a roof on it? Armour plate the underside? For ever and ever?

The USA has an effective boycott (including academic) of Cuba. I don't hear the Burning Bushites complaining about that.

What I don't understand is why Martin you have to be so fowlmouthed and rude about it all. Surely you should be able to rise above all that and put your point accross with out being so nasty and rude. I agree that the subject matter is serious but you take that away with the way you communicate with other people. You are a member of this forum and you give it a bad name with your abusive postings you come accross as being no better than some of the Guests that post here....note I am not saying all guests as some add valuable information to this forum. Martin I suggest you think before you type and help make The Mudcat a nice place to be around (which it generally is) rather than making mountains out of mole hills and being abusive.

Catsphiddle - Your request makes sense but remember you're talking to Martin - aka Burger Boy. He has said repeatedly that he doesn't come here for debate. He's here to disrupt and cause discord among the "liberals" - which is anyone who isn't him. He's a troll. And for some reason the moderators here do little or nothing to contain him. So we can only suppose that what Martin does here is acceptable to them. Burger Boy hates everything including himself. So when he pushes the envelope some of us push back. It's not very mature but when you have a two year old throwing a tantrum on a grocery store floor the time for mature discussion is over. And currently the Mudcat is the equlivant of a grocery store floor. Sad but true, just like Martin.

Anti-Semitism is an insidious phenomenon that is far more widespread than appears on the surface. Old prejudices die hard. People who probably don't even consider themselves bigoted have made vicious anti-semitic comments to me, not realizing that I'm Jewish. Such comments are inevitably accompanied by the sort of nudge-nudge-wink-wink "just between us" gestures indicating that they know they are saying something un-P.C., but are quite sure that I--and everyone else--agrees with them.

There is also a widespread, not-so-subtle anti-semitism in the guise of being pro-Israel and honoring Jews being played out in the beliefs of born-again Christians who believe that Jews and Israel play a big part in Christ's return to earth--that ultimately involves the Jews being wiped out and going to hell like all the other poor slobs who haven't been born again into the true faith. Scary that this belief permeates the highest levels of U.S. government and is influencing foreign policy--not that any born-again policy maker would ever admit it.

Ever wonder why the "No Child Left Behind" act is named remarkably like the "Left Behind" book series fictionally depicting the entire born-again scenario?

Well, sleepless dad, you must have some other detractors here, because it wasn't me.

I can tell you my skin is way to thick for you to get under.

Abusing women is not my cup of tea. I don't care if an asshole is a man or a woman, they are still an asshole. Women work and do respectful things in all walks of society and I would vote for one for president ( condi, perhaps), but your position about abusing women is either outdated and cheuvenistic (sp) or you are some broad yourself who is fucked in the head because you were obviously abused yourself. That's probably the case because of how thin skinned you are and how a little profanity makes you squeemish.

Get help. Then go to hell.

Well, GUEST,World Jewish Digest, you should be ashamed of yourself for publishing such an unbalanced, kneejerk article. You help nobody by screaming "RACISM" every time someone criticises Israel. The only time we (and you and they) will get peace is when you (and and we and they) learn to listen. You can only control your end of it, so start listening and understanding NOW.
