or Anti-Jewishness, by Adel Samara.
A few days ago someone asked me about Gilad Atzmon and
non-Zionist Jews in general. Although the question of
non-Zionist Jews is a complicated one, however, one might
offer some points to differentiate a Zionist from a
non-Zionist. These points do not apply to Jews only, rather
· Any person, party, regime that recognizes the Zionist
Ashkenazi Regime (ZAR) is a Zionist, whether he is Jew,
Palestinian, Arab or from other place or nationality.
· Non-Zionist is a person who believes in all forms of
struggle, including military struggle, for the liberation of
Palestine and the realization of Palestinians’ Right of
Return to their homes and properties.
· Non-Zionist is a person who considers the Palestinian
Nakba of 1948 as an ongoing Holocaust of the Palestinian
· BUT any revolutionary is the person who believes in a
socialist solution for Palestine as part of a socialist Arab
Homeland, in which Jews -- whose overwhelming majority
settled Palestine in the course of the Zionist colonialist
project -- will be treated as any other cultural/religious
group. I agree that a socialist solution is still too far,
it is a vision, but it is the sole real solution.
Although I have followed some Atzmon’s work and activities,
but I can not say that I am fully aware of his position on
the Arab-Israeli conflict. I had the opportunity of watching
an interview with him by Press TV, and I also read a
statement published few months prior to that interview and
was issued by some Palestinian writers and activists
entitled “Granting No Quarter: A Call for the Disavowal of
the Racism and Anti-Semitism of Gilad Atzmon”.
That statement would have been reasonable if it were
published before the Zionist Ashkenazi Regime (ZAR) declared
its demand to create a pure “The Jewish State”.
If Jews meant a “nation” then there is no such thing. The
Zionist settlers in Palestine came from nearly 100 countries
and nations. If the “Jewish state” meant the state of those
who believe in Judaism, that means that we are talking about
politicization of Judaism, Jewishness, then Gilad is right
in his criticism to Jewishness as an ideology. He clearly
differentiates between Judaism and Jewishness. The question
that would logically follow: Why would some Palestinians
object to that?
Jewishness is political Judaism. The same of what I call Þæì
ÇáÏíä ÇáÅÓáÇãí ÇáÓíÇÓí/ÇáãÓíøóÓ the Forces of Politicized
Islamic Religion (FPIR) some call it Political Islam, but it
is also present in all religions: neo-conservatism is
politicized Christianity and Jewishness is the same as well.
Even if we disagree with Atzmon whether Zionism applies to
the Diaspora or that it is no more applicable today, and
whether he is post-Zionist or not…etc, we can assume that
that it is his own opinion or interpretation or what we call
in Arabic Ijtihad.
Why criticizing Atzmon? What is all this fuss about?
Leave it for Zionists to fight him? Why would Palestinians
volunteer that fast!
If this ZAR is apartheid, it is relatively right in the
occupied part of Palestine 1948. In South Africa, there is
no expulsion, i.e. Refugee question.
I wonder why would not these Palestinian writers and
activists protest against the iconization of Noam Chomsky
when he bluntly refuses any form of one state solution
because it, in his view, will harm the Jews!
The Holocaust was executed in a short period of time,
intensive one, but our Holocaust is a long and extended one.
One final comment on the statement of the Palestinian
writers and activists: What is wrong with Atzmon calling
Zionism as the Jewish version of Nazism?
