Sorry John, if you support Gilad Atzmon, you're supporting a Nazi

Three days ago, I reported that Israel Lobby author John Mearsheimer had come out of the closet and admitted to his anti-Semitism by writing an introduction to a book by Jewish Nazi Gilad Atzmon. Mearsheimer responded in a lengthy diatribe written on the Foreign Policy blog of his co-author, Stephen Walt, which I tried to read (because it was linked on Memeorandum :-) but found my eyes glazing over within two paragraphs.

Harry's Place went through it all and concludes that Atzmon is a Nazi, and that Walt and Mearsheimer are providing cover for him.
Walt’s logic goes like this: if you think his co-author is backing a Nazi sympathiser, you prove their “Israel lobby” theories to be right all along.

But that’s just silly. Atzmon is a Nazi, and Walt and Mearsheimer are now providing cover for him.

Here is Gilad Atzmon expressing a classically fascist/Nazi position on Jewish finance, in his new book The Wandering Who, in a chapter entitled “Credit Crunch or Zio-Punch?” [p.30]:
“You may wonder at this stage whether I regard the credit crunch as a Zionist plot or even a Jewish conspiracy. In fact the opposite is the case. It isn’t a plot and certainly not a conspiracy for it was all in the open.”
In this phrase, Atzmon reveals he thinks “Jewish” and “Zionist” are basically the same. He accuses Jews of openly causing the credit crunch. Remember, this is the book that Mearsheimer describes as “fascinating and provocative”.

In The Wandering Who, Atzmon interweaves his understanding of Jews today, with antisemitic caricatures, writing in The Wandering Who [p.51]:
Fagin is the ultimate plunderer, a child exploiter and usurer. Shylock is the blood-thirsty merchant. With Fagin and Shylock in mind, the Israeli treatment of the Palestinians seems to be just a further event in an endless hellish continuum.”
We should look closely at what Atzmon is saying here. According to Atzmon, Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is only the latest chapter in a “hellish continuum” of Jews plundering goods and exploiting children.

This means that however you consider Israeli actions, they are only the latest in a continuum of wicked actions carried out by world Jewry. In Atzmon’s “continuum” Israeli evil carries on from ancient Jewish evil, in which Shylock and Fagin are not vile racist caricatures at all, but accurately reflect Jews. That is why Atzmon can write in The Wandering Who [p.52]:
Some Jews are rather unhappy with Charles Dickens’ Fagin and Shakespeare’s Shylock, who they regard as ‘anti-Semitic’.
It gets far worse.
Indeed, it does. Read the whole thing.

I'm genuinely livid over two things, Carl - the West's backing of redlining Jews out of Jerusalem and John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt's known association with a visceral anti-Semite and Israel hater. These two ugly episodes tell us all we need to know about the tenor of our era. People who support ethnic cleansing and back folks like Atzmon, want to see the Jewish people harmed and Israel destroyed.

That is the bottom line.

The linked blog notes that Atzmon hangs out with and gives interviews with known anti-semitic Holocaust deniers and enthusiastically agrees that he's "joined the gentile side". The subtext of Holocaust "denial" has always been that, well, actually the Shoah occurred but was deserved as justified by an infinite regress of Judeophobic recursive circular self-reifying rationalization. Anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism isn't about Jews, it's about anti-Semites and their need to compensate. Professor after credentialed academic adopted crank cracked pot anti-Semitic conspiracy mumbo jumbo in the 19th and 20th centuries, not excluding the grossest "racial hygiene". This is just the way it is.
