Antisemitic NOT Anti-Zionist

A key tactic of the Israel haters is to accuse pro-Israel people of confusing their anti Zionism for antisemitism.

For example, here is what Lauren Booth had to say when defending former Malaysian Prime Minister – and antisemite – Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad

Q: He’s been labeled an anti-Semitic in the Western press due to his views on Israel. Do you agree?

A: If you speak to Dr. Mahathir, it is clear he has neither the personality nor the inclination to be an anti-Semite. He is a thoughtful, pious and philosophical man.

I want to tell the people of Malaysia not to be scared of being labeled anti-Semitic when criticising the unjust, disgraceful behaviour of the Israel regime.

The label ‘anti-Semite’ is applied deliberately to quash debate on the Israeli government and its army and we must not be afraid to speak out (on it).

But let’s be honest about it. In the vast majority of cases, those showing a hatred of Israel are motivated by hatred of Jews. And while they are generally careful about mentioning Jews – replacing that word with “Zionists” – occasionally, they let down their guard and expose the ugly truth.

Case in point, the aptly named Haitham Sabbah, a blogger who describes himself as “Palestinian by blood Kuwaiti by birth Jordanian by nationality Bahraini by passion.” Naturally, he’s a hater of Israel. But his blog ( is also the forum for some very blatant antisemitism.

For example, here’s just a portion of a post by a Dr. Elias Akleh, which appeared yesterday:


Since the beginning of human history we have witnessed so many genocidal murderers; kings, presidents, military leaders and political clergy, who called for, advocated and perpetrated genocidal crimes against whole nations. A thorough study of those criminals shows clearly that the worst genocidal murderers throughout history were mostly Jews.

One can clearly detect a Jewish genocidal characteristic in their leaders and their Rabbis since the beginning of their history starting with Moses along with other leaders andRabbis such as Joshua, David, Samuel, Saul, Solomon, and others until present day Israeli leaders such as Ariel Sharon, Ovadia Yosef, Shimon Perez, Benjamin Netanyahu, Tzibi Livni, Ehud Barak and all the Israeli Prime Ministers and Rabbis since the establishment ofIsrael.

While the Jews ferociously attack any non-Jew, who criticizes them or exposes their crimes, they cherish and honor their own genocidal criminals and brag about them in their own literature, their own Jewish media, and even in their own religious books; e.g. the Torah, Encyclopedia Judaica, Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, Who is Who in American Jewry, and many Israeli newspapers such as Ynet and many others.

It would take many volumes to list those Jewish criminals throughout history; therefore I will limit the two parts of this article to some of their twentieth century criminals and let the readers do their own research about the thousands others.

Jews are generally brainwashed to believe themselves to be God’s chosen people and all other nations are their slaving servants. Their elite strive to control global finance one country at a time on their way to building their Jewish Israel in Palestine to be the control center of the whole globe. Through their crooked system of usury they were able to control the fate of empires starting from the Roman Empire up to the present USA. They incite hatred, ethnic conflicts and religious wars pitting Christians against Muslims to destroy these empires to eliminate any rival empire to their dreaming Jewish Israel. Their favorite operating mode is through the Crypto-Jews, who seemingly convert to other religions, change their names and perpetrate genocides to blame it on others.

In 1915 those crypt-Jews perpetrated the Armenian genocide and blamed it on the Turks. The Ottoman Empire was controlling Palestine sought to become the Jewish state, and had rejected the Rothschild’s offer to buy it. The Zionist Israelite Community of Salonika, Greece, financed the Turkish “Committee for Union and Progress” (Ittihad ve Terakke) formed mainly by crypto-Jews, to overthrow the Turkish Empire in what is known as the “Young Turk Revolution” of 1908. This revolution was in fact a Jewish take over led by crypto-Jews, as exposed by Sir Gerard Lowther, the ambassador of the United Kingdom to the Ottoman Empire.

After the “Young Turk Revolution” new leaders of the Ottoman Empire such as Mustafa Kemal Pasha (Ataturk), Tala’at Pasha, Djavid Bey and many others were crypto-Jews. They controlled the Empire and took the opportunity to mass murder the Armenian Christians; the Turkish intelligentsia at the time, who composed the very rich and influential middle class. Tala’at Pasha was the principal organizer of the massacre and deportation process. Armenian men were mass murdered in their own suburbs, and the women along with children and the elderly were deported to the Syrian Desert and left there to die without any food or water. The result was 1.5 million Armenian dead.

The Jews wanted a global religious war between Christian Europe and Muslim Ottoman Empire in the hope to secure Palestine for themselves. In order to entice Christian Europe to attack the Ottoman Empire with the justification of protecting Christians, crypto-Jews slaughtered Armenian Christians and blamed it on the Moslem Turks. Other Christian ethnic groups, such as Assyrians and Greeks, were also targeted.

Turks, rather than Jews, are still to date blamed for the Armenian Genocide. For further in depth research refer to Christopher Jon Bjerknes thorough research “The Jewish Genocide of Armenian Christians”. You can also watch “Jewish Genocide of Armenian Christians” on youtube.

Meanwhile, look who retweeted this antisemitic post with approval.

So there you have it, folks. When a hater of Israel accuses you of crying wolf about their antisemitism, just realize that in many cases, they are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

  • The New Antisemite

    Mahathir was ‘criticized as an anti-semite’ because he didn’t even bother to hide that he was talking about Jews.
    “We are actually very strong, 1.3 billion people cannot be simply wiped out. The Europeans killed 6 million Jews out of 12 million. But today the Jews rule the world by proxy. They get others to fight and die for them,” he said.

    So the problem is not exactly his anti-Israel views.

    • AussieDave

      You needn’t have linked to CNN. That very statement was in my earlier post linked in the above one (and hence why I called him an antisemite)

      • The New Antisemite

        Oops. Sorry about that.

  • Hard Little Machine

    What these ANTISEMITES hate having pointed out is that THEY don’t get to determine what antisemitism looks like any more than wife beaters get to define what domestic violence is.

  • NormanF

    I guess the Jews are great time travelers and no one detected them changing history! Its always bothered me anti-Semites seem to know things the rest of us don’t. But what’s always missing from their fervid rantings about alleged Jewish conspiracies is the lack of any proof for them. It has never kept people from hating the Jews.

    And while its theoretically possible for an anti-Zionist to be against Israel without being a bigot, I have never met such an animal. All the ones I’ve encountered can’t seem to keep the “J” word out of the conversation. Few people are neutral on Israel and that’s human nature.

  • rulierose

    why should we listen to you, Aussie Dave? you’re just part of that “Jewish media” that is plotting to take over the world with the Rothschilds and Kemal Ataturk (a notorious MOT).

    btw: I love how this guy puts Torah and Ynet in the same category! I bet Haaretz’s feelings were hurt when they read that, LOL.

    I too have found very little difference between anti-Semites and anti-Zionists. yes, they may be criticizing the country and not the religion…but chances are what they’re criticizing about the country they would not criticize if another country was doing it.

    it says something that the world can condemn Israel for building apartments in Jerusalem, but doesn’t seem too upset about the 120,000+ slaughtered Syrians. as long as they’re not being murdered by chemical weapons, it’s all good!

    Yaacov Lozowick wrote a wonderful response to Lauren Booth and her claims of ant-Zionism a couple of years ago.

  • walt kovacs

    all israel haters hate the jew

    its just that simple

  • Yoni

    He forgot the Neolithic Revolution, which we Jews invented for greedy imperialist profit to destroy the world of justice and equality that had existed beforehand. Indeed one can see the cries for help made against the Jews even then, in some caves in France and Spain…

    Lazar Kaganovich was a vicious Jew hater and Stalin’s lap dog.

    It should be noted that most jews who held high posts in the early years of the Soviet Union became victims themselves by Stalin!
