Israel Shahak: Political Consequences In 2 Minutes

THE PERSISTENT ATTITUDES of classical Judaism toward non-Jews strongly influence its followers, Orthodox Jews and those who can be regarded as its continuators, Zionists. Through the latter it also influences the policies of the State of Israel. Since 1967, as Israel becomes more and more ‘Jewish’, so its policies are influenced more by Jewish ideological considerations than by those of a coldly conceived imperial interest. This ideological influence is not usually perceived by foreign experts, who tend to ignore or downplay the influence of the Jewish religion on Israeli policies. This explains why many of their predictions are incorrect.

In fact, more Israeli government crises are caused by religious reasons, often trivial, than by any other cause. The space devoted by the Hebrew press to discussion of the constantly occurring quarrels between the various religious groups, or between the religious and the secular, is greater than that given any other subject, except in times of war.

August 1993, some topics of major interest to readers of the Hebrew press are: whether Jewish religious burial associations, who have a monopoly over the burial of all Jews except kibbutz members, will be allowed to continue their custom of circumcising the corpses of non-circumcised Jews before burying them (and without asking the family’s permission); whether the import of non-kosher meat to Israel, banned unofficially since the establishment of the state, will be allowed or banned by law.

In particular, the facile comparison of Israel to other cases of Western imperialism or to settler states, is incorrect. During apartheid, the land of South Africa was officially divided into 87 per cent which ‘belonged’ to the whites and 13 per cent which was said officially to ‘belong’ to the Blacks. In addition, officially sovereign states, embodied with all the symbols of sovereignty, the so-called Bantustans, were established. But ‘Jewish ideology’ demands that no part of the Land of Israel can be recognized as ‘belonging’ to non-Jews and that signs of sovereignty, such as Jordanian flags, can be officially allowed to be displayed. The principle of Redemption of the Land demands that ideally all the land, and not merely, say, 87 per cent, will in time be ‘redeemed’, that is, become owned by Jews. ‘Jewish ideology prohibits that very convenient principle of imperialism, already known to Romans and followed by so many secular empires, and best formulated by Lord Cromer: ‘We do not govern Egypt, we govern the governors of Egypt.’ Jewish ideology forbids such recognition; it also forbids a seemingly respectful attitude to any ‘non-Jewish governors’ within the Land of Israel. The entire apparatus of client kings, sultans, maharajas and chiefs or, in more modern times, of dependent dictators, so convenient in other cases of imperial hegemony, cannot be used by Israel within the area considered part of the Land of Israel. Hence the fears, commonly expressed by Palestinians, of being offered a ‘Bantustan’ are totally groundless. Only if numerous Jewish lives are lost in war, as happened both in 1973 and in the 1983-5 war aftermath in Lebanon, is an Israeli retreat conceivable since it can be justified by the principle that the sanctity of Jewish life is more important than other considerations. What is not possible, as long as Israel remains a ‘Jewish state’, is the Israeli grant of a fake, but nevertheless symbolically real sovereignty, or even of real autonomy, to non-Jews within the Land of Israel for merely political reasons. Israel, like some other countries, is an exclusivist state, but Israeli exclusivism is peculiar to itself.

In the last 40 years the number of non-Jews killed by Jews is by far greater than the number of the Jews killed by non-Jews. The extent of the persecution and discrimination against non-Jews inflicted by the ‘Jewish state’ with the support of organized diaspora Jews is also enormously greater than the suffering inflicted on Jews by regimes hostile to the~ Although the struggle against antisemitism (and of all other forms of racism) should never cease, the struggle against Jewish chauvinism and exclusivism, which must include a critique of classical Judaism, is now of equal or greater importance.

This completes my series of excerpts from Israel Shahak’s Jewish History, Jewish Religion: The Weight of Three Thousand Years.

I have decided to share two of the visions I had as a child. When I was eight, I had a vision of a future war that killed 99.5% of the world's population. When I was 16 and living in the projects, I had a vision of my future. I was to live in complete obscurity until it came time to stop WW III. When I was about ten, I had read a bio of Nikita Khrushchev which said he survived Stalin by playing the bumbling fool an old Russian peasant trick. I decided to do the same as I had already learned that we did not live in a democracy. The other vision I had when I was in third grade was of the Mind of God and how it interacted in the creation of the world we see. I believe you and I were born at this time precisely so we would have an opportunity to stop this war. As for my personal info, I grew up on military bases and in housing projects. My legs atrophied from starvation as a child. My second step-father died in prison. I used to have to rub my skin to simulate human contact. They did not feed me when I was a child. I do not fight in their wars as an adult.

    Circumcising the dead??? And their particular god wants this?

  2. Tim says:

    It is important to differentiate between true Jews, who follow the teachings of Torah, whose pre-eminent moral expression is the Ten Commandments; and the counterfeit versions, who are neither Semites nor even Jewish, but Khazars from the area between the Caspian and Black Seas, who dedicate themselves to the Talmud, an “oral tradition” unmentioned in the Bible except in the most tangential fashion, which legitimizes every form of perversion, and whose inevitable political expression is the blasphemy of Zionism.
    85% of the inhabitants of the land of Israel are of this latter type, hence their genocidal interventions in Palestine, and their wish to proceed in the same manner to you and me in due course.

  3. Just read this article. It is outright incorrect that the bantustan policy in SA allocated only 13% of the country to black homelands. It was far more than that. Just the Transkei and Kwa Zulu Natal alone consisted of almost 70 % of the arible land, being on the East coast where all the rainfall occures. The 13% figure was one presented by the liberal anti apartheid press, and was a total lie. A map of the proposed devision of the country by the then prime minister, Dr Hendrik Verwoort must be available somewhere on the internet. I suggest interested parties look it up and educate themselves.
    Just thought I´d put the record straight.
