Don’t identify Jews with ‘white imperialism’
In today's upside-down world, whiteness is not a pigment but an ideology that makes false connections between separate causes in the course of its toxic attack on Western civilization. In the current Orwellian effort to demonize all of Western civilization through the fusion of racism and colonialism, Jews and Israel are transformed into the embodiment of white supremacists who oppress Palestinians. Given that most Israelis are not white but are dark-skinned, this is absurd. But facts are irrelevant when the end game demands that Jews be demonized and Israel be delegitimized.
The experience of being an immigrant group and living as a minority in an often hostile culture is, of course, one that Diaspora Jews know only too well.
There are obviously huge differences, though, between the Jewish and black experience. Yet one of the most important is overlooked.
In Britain and America, as we have seen over the past few weeks, a movement is under way to rewrite American and British history with the aim of changing the culture. The charge is that white society is endemically racist.
This is supposedly demonstrated by the failure of Western society to acknowledge the cultural sins of slavery and colonialism. The failure sufficiently to trash this history and airbrush out of cultural memory all who have associations with it is said to prove that “white privilege” still rules.
