TWITTER SABBATH GOY OF THE YEAR AWARD……

   

…….And the winner is!!!

Comment by Gilad Atzmon:

One may wonder what brings a Palestinian activist to compose such a twit? Does Ali Abunimah really care about Judaism and its reputation? And why does he believe that Zionism conspires to ‘trick’ us to ‘blame the Jews’?

I guess that Ali has yet to grasp the distinction to be made between Jews (the people), Judaism (the religion) and Jewishness (culture and ideology). No surprise considering his somewhat dated vision on the issues of Zionism.

Ali should know that no one actually blames ‘the Jews’ for Israeli and Zionist crimes. Certainly, some look into Jewish ideology (Jewishness), others look into Jewish culture, a few of us are looking into some of those vile, Talmudic teachings and many of us are intrigued by the goy hatred that is deeply rooted (also) in Jewish secularism (Zionist and anti Zionist alike). Some of us are studying Jewish political exclusivity and Jewish supremacy that is inherent to Jewish left and right while a lot of us are interested in Jewish political power and the Jewish Lobby.

In case Ali failed to notice, Israel defines itself as the ‘Jewish State’. It commits crimes in the name of the Jewish people. Its airplanes and tanks are decorated with Jewish symbols. So is it not our ethical and intellectual duty to ask who are the Jews? What is Judaism and what is Jewishness? Considering the crimes committed by the Jewish State against Ali’s brothers and sisters in Palestine,  it is our moral duty to question the relationships between Jews, Judaism, Jewishness and Zionism?

It is depressing, however, to find that, after more than a century of Palestinian struggle, a leading Palestinian blogger is found to be clueless about these basic and fundamental matters. Still, ignorance is no a crime – it can sometimes even be cute.

If only Twitter would only allow Ali some more characters, his message could have read:


“No matter how much Zionism does in its effort to blacken the name of Judaism, NEVER fall for its trick and blame Jews for Israel’s crimes because it may upset JVP and George Soros…”
