As I’ve chronicled a multitude of times, there is a widespread phenomenon of the Dumb Jew. Suicidal to themselves and homicidal to their friends, they lack a sense of history in addition to survival instincts. Recently, I blogged about the Jerusalem Post’s Schmucko Avineri, who had written an open “Letter to a Serbian Friend” explaining how as a Jew struggling to hold on to the only Jewish state, Serbs should understand the Albanians’ desire for two states, and a 53rd Muslim state. Today we bring you a Uri Avnery, whose article last week “Three Cheers for Kosova!” I don’t need to read. All that needs to be known about Avnery is that his pro-”Kosova” piece was published on an Arabic website called Middle East Online.
I wrote recently that a Jew who is suicidal for his people is homicidal for the Serbs. Conversely, a Jew who betrays the Serbs, betrays himself. Just look at what happened to these Croatian-Jewish loyalists who betrayed the Serbs in the early 90s, despite having died alongside them in Croatian concentration camps less than 50 years earlier. While every word in this November 18, 1993 issue of UK’s Guardian is delectable, some things required additional emphasis and are in bold:
Jewish leaders in Zagreb are calling on the Croatian government to halt attempts to rehabilitate the second world war fascist regime. They warn that the disturbing trend is fuelling ethnic, religious and racial intolerance.
Among the most vocal campaigners for international recognition of Croatia two years ago, Jewish leaders are distressed by “extensive” condonation of the Quisling Ustashe state, which slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Serbs, Jews and Gypsies.
The Croatian authorities have tacitly condoned efforts to play down Ustashe atrocities and have exonerated some of the perpetrators.
President Franjo Tudjman set the revisionist ball rolling several years ago with his book Wastelands: Historical Truth, which minimises the number of victims at the Jasenovac death camp[s].
Since then streets, squares and schools dedicated to anti-fascist fighters have been renamed and a monument in memory of 1,500 Jews executed at the Jadovno concentration camp has been demolished.
Recently the Zagreb leadership announced plans to revive the kuna, the currency in circulation during the Ustashe regime.
President Tudjman has proposed that the remains of Croats executed by the partisans should be transferred to Jasenovac. This was the final straw for Croatia’s Jewish community. They stressed, in an unprecedented protest letter to the government, that while many innocent civilians were murdered by the communists, Ustashe were also among those killed.
The prospect of fascists being buried side by side with their victims sickened Croatian Jews.
Jewish community leaders have called on the Zagreb district attorney to file war crimes charges against Ivo Rojnica, a senior Ustashe official who escaped to Argentina after the war and has been appointed ambassador by the Croatian foreign ministry.
“We are asking the government to fulfill its anti-fascist declaration. We will exert pressure and it will not take the form of mere protest letters,” said Srdjan Matic, leader of Zagreb’s Jewish community.
Jewish representatives believe the sanitisation of Croatian brutality in the second world war reflects Mr Tudjman’s effort to reconcile Croats of different political persuasions. On the one hand, they say, he patches over fascist crimes, while on the other he talks about the republic’s contribution to the anti-fascist movement.
The Croatian government, many observers believe, cannot afford to ignore protests from its Jewish community, whose support bolstered the republic’s request for international recognition after it seceded from Yugoslavia.
“Our lobbying gave them moral credibility at a time when they were often depicted as anti-Semitic or neo-fascist,” said Mr Matic, who feels the charges were then largely unfounded.
But if attempts to rehabilitate the Ustashe regime go unchecked, he warns, such accusations may soon have some justification.
So far Jews have been spared the state-sponsored discrimination visited on the Serb minority, but they are keenly aware that no one is immune.
“Revisionism encourages religious, ethnic and racial intolerance. It’s already reached incredible levels,” said Mr Matic, who believes that Croatian independence has been soured by moves to paint over Ustashe crimes.
Looks like someone missed the whole point of Croatian independence, no? Perhaps the “depiction” of Croatian anti-Semitism and neo-fascism by those who were resisting supporting Croatian independence, was more than a depiction? Especially with that Wastelands book out there for several years by that time? But apparently, it wasn’t apparent to this Jewish “leader” that Croatia really was proud of its Ustashe; after all, it was just the Serbs being targeted by that society’s rampant, state-sponsored discrimination. One of my favorite parts was how the Jewish leader wagged a finger at the Croatian state, saying it couldn’t afford to ignore Jewish protests, because Jews had lobbied for international recognition after Croatia’s illegal secession. That’s like me telling a one-night-stand the next morning that he can’t afford to ignore my feelings or demands, because I gave him what he wanted the night before.
Is there anything in this world that Jews do see coming? One begins to understand how god feels looking down on us — mice trying desperately to navigate an L-shaped maze.
Because of the heavy Balkan news cycle right now, we are privileged to have an article published yesterday by yet another Dumb Jew, if he can be called a Jew at all (more on that in one minute). What we have is one Eric Margolis, writing in the Toronto Sun:
…The U.S. was the first major power to recognize the new Republic of Kosova — as it should henceforth be called. [If you’re an Albanian nationalist, Muslim or dhimmi.] There were almost as many American flags in the streets of its capital, Prishtina, as Albanian ones. [Barf.]
President George W. Bush deserves a hearty salute.
After communist demagogue Slobodan Milosevic sought to build a Greater Serbia in the 1990s through ethnic terrorism, Washington forced NATO to halt Serb genocide in Bosnia. [Someone didn’t read a single day’s transcripts from the tribunal.]
In 1999, while Europe watched impotently, Milosevic’s forces killed 13,000 Kosovar Albanians [not], blew up mosques [forts used to shoot from], gang-raped Muslim women [he wishes], burned Albanian villages [KLA strongholds] and drove one million Albanian Kosovars into frigid winter fields where they would have died of exposure without outside help. [NATO bombs and the KLA did that.] The U.S. saved the Kosovars by launching a short air war on the Serbs.
Albanians also were divided between Albania proper, and Yugoslavia’s provinces of Kosovo and Macedonia. So Albanians…remain Europe’s divided peoples. [Making the case for Greater Albania.]
But there is no hint free Kosova will join neighbouring Albania anytime soon. [Nope, no hint here.] The Kosovar leadership, under able PM Hasim Tachi [former petty crook/terrorist/war criminal], rejects any talk of union; so does Albania’s capable prime minister, Dr. Sali Berisha. Kosovars are not eager to merge with impoverished, struggling Albania; they want to be in the EU. [As Greater Albania.]
It certainly is a tonic [Kool-Aid?] seeing people abroad joyously waving American flags and blessing the U.S. [No thanks.] This is what my America used to be about.
I pray that under new presidential leadership, the U.S.A. will resume this honourable tradition as liberator and defender of human rights. [For ubermenschen.]
Now, don’t let the Jewish name Margolis fool you. According to his Wikipedia entry:
Margolis was born in New York City in the 1940s to Henry M. Margolis, a New York businessman, restaurant owner, theatrical producer and investor, and Nexhmie Zaimi, his Albanian born mother who was a journalist and author…In addition to being a contributing editor at the Toronto Sun newspaper, Margolis writes for Dawn, Pakistan’s leading newspaper, the Gulf Times in Qatar, the Khaleej Times in Dubai, and The American Conservative. He appears regularly on such television outlets as CNN, Fox, CBC, Britain’s British Sky Broadcasting News, NPR, and CTV National…
Margolis identifies his politics as “Eisenhower Republican”. Though his domestic political persuasion is moderately conservative (he is a staunch anti-communist and a supporter of capitalism), Margolis’ views on the Middle East are sharply at odds with the neoconservatives.
Margolis is best known from his coverage of Palestine and Kashmir. Margolis’ mother, Nexhmie Zaimi, was also a journalist who spent a long time in the Middle East documenting the plight of the Palestinians during the 1950s. Her influence, plus Margolis’s role as a foreign correspondent in the Mideast and travelling with the mujahideen during the Soviet-Afghan War, has given Margolis a strong interest in the Muslim World. He strongly supported NATO’s intervention in the Kosovo war and also supports the rebels in Chechnya.
He opposes the Bush Administration’s invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hmmm. He certainly saw the Kosovo intervention the way the neocons did. Gee, what could account for this inconsistency? Maybe we can find the consistency in it. Surely it couldn’t have been Margolis’s anti-Serbness that put him in bed with the well-intended but idiotic neocons?
Between Jewish genes and Albanian ones, we can see here which are dominant. For we’ve ended up with a half-Albanian, half-Jew who is pro-Muslim, anti-Serb, and anti-Jew. We’ve even got an Albanian mother feeling enough kinship with Palestinians that she hauled her Balkan ass to the Middle East right after the decimated Jews finally got a sliver of a state.
Good thing Albanian-supremacist genes work in perfect symbiosis with the self-loathing Jewish ones he got from his Dumb Jew cliche of a father who married an Albanian sympathetic to the Jew-killers of the PLO. The spawn of such a pair could only be an Eric Margolis.
The February assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri shocked even the most cynical Mideast experts. Syrian propaganda, predictably blaming Israel, was echoed by the North American syndicated columnist Eric Margolis. Ironically, the same week that the Mehlis report to the UN on Hariri’s murder was released, Margolis gave a soapbox to unsubstantiated claims that Israel had a hand in the 1988 plane crash that killed Pakistani dictator Zia Ul-Haq.
In February, 2005, an entire Honest Reporting dispatch was devoted to Margolis:
[W]hen a columnist regularly demonizes one side of the Arab-Israeli conflict — while resorting to outlandish conspiracy theories and unsubstantiated allegations — the columnist has crossed the bounds of ethical journalism.
Case in point: HonestReporting Canada reports that the Toronto Sun’s Eric Margolis, who has a long record of Israel-bashing, recently accused Israel of poisoning Yassir Arafat:
“Arafat’s convenient death removed a major obstacle to U.S.-Israeli plans. This writer continues to suspect Arafat was murdered by an untraceable nerve or blood toxin. He was being held prisoner by Israel in his Ramallah compound. (Feb. 13)”
And this week (Feb. 20), Margolis likewise implied with no substantiation whatsoever that Israel may have murdered former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Observing that ‘the professional expertise of the bombing strongly suggests a state intelligence agency,’ Margolis names only one such likely agency in his column: ‘Israel’s Mossad.’
In a 1998 column, Margolis even propagated allegations (originally published in the Times of London) that Israeli scientists were working on an ‘ethnic bomb’ that would kill Arabs — while sparing Jews. Western scientists dismissed this claim — embraced by the Arab media and lunatic-fringe ideologues — as utter nonsense. Yet Margolis’s column, which appeared in the Edmonton Sun and Ottawa Sun, quoted ‘numerous reliable sources’ who claimed, ‘Israeli scientists are attempting to engineer deadly micro-organisms that only attack DNA within the cells of victims with distinctive Arab genes.’
Margolis, who appears often on Canadian TV, has also claimed ‘a group of Likudniks’ brought the US to war in Iraq, and that ‘bloodthirsty neo-conservatives’ with Israeli allegiance drive Washington policy.
[A]s James Hill, managing editor of the Washington Post Writers Group, has stated: “You have to hold columnists to the same standard as anyone at the newspaper. If a column writer is making egregious errors in the process of stating his or her opinion, eventually it’s not the columnist who’s doing that, it’s the paper that’s doing that.”
Eric Margolis has established a pattern of violating this standard, promoting wholly unsubstantiated accusations against the State of Israel for allegedly perpetrating illegal, unethical and diabolical acts. Margolis has crossed the line of journalistic standards, and calls into question the credibility of his primary platform, the Toronto Sun.
Certainly if Margolis gets away with making up tall tales about the Jews, he can do it against the even easier target — Serbs — who unfortunately don’t have a Serbian version of Honest Reporting. Indeed, Margolis has been writing Serb fiction for years. And for this reason, one can understand his buying into the idea of Jews inventing an Arab-only killer bug, given what Serbs did to Albanian school children in this tall tale:
In March of 1990 several thousand Albanian teenagers were brought to hospitals and clinics across Kosovo. [Former Kosovo Health Secretary Dr. Vukasin] Andric said that they were brought to the medical centers en masse with great urgency, and with great publicity.
The Albanians claimed that the Serbs had poisoned the teens with gas while they were attending school. According to press reports, between 4,000 and 7,000 ethnic Albanian teenagers were admitted to hospitals in Kosovo complaining of a mysterious illness.
Dr. Andric said that the sudden flood of Albanian teenagers forced the hospitals to discharge existing patients some of whom were seriously ill. Dr. Andric testified that toxicology tests performed on the teens revealed no traces of poison gas in their blood or urine.
Dr. Andric, who was a doctor treating these people, noted that the alleged illness became more severe when TV cameras were around. He said that the Albanians would be up walking the hospital corridors when there were no cameras, but as soon as the press would show up they were suddenly struck ill and had to return to bed.
It was Dr. Andric’s conviction that these Albanian teenagers were faking. He based his conviction on the fact that no Serbian students, who were studying in the same schools at the same time, fell ill. It was exclusively Albanians who were [a]ffected…
So if the Serbs could create a “smart gas” that selectively targeted Albanian genes, surely the Mossad scientists can make a bug that’s only interested in biting Arabs.
If Eric Margolis is any indication, “Albanianism” indeed is capable of transcending all other religious and ethnic affiliations a person may have, recruiting even a part-Jew to a cause whose strings are ultimately pulled by jihadists. Hell, Albanianism that enables jihadism even transcends Mormonism, if we recall this Mormon Albanian I’d introduced months ago:
I am as much a neo-con as [a] Jew, and I am also Albanian. I am distressed that you keep harping on some alleged Albanian lobby effort to bring American Jews to its side, when the Albanian lobby is so fractured and penniless that any Jewish-American it gets is on merit not on punditry…
Also, why to you always associate Albanians with Muslims anyway? Have you ever been in Kosovo or Albania? Have you see how nominally muslim we are? What would you make of a Mormon Albanian like me?
I would submit to you that your “Muslim Albanian” word association is as realistic as to say “Mormon Albanian”.
I would also accuse you of being paid, and I’m going to suggest to Eric Margolis to keep a close eye on you.
Ah, they found each other.
In honor of the Margolises, Avineris and Avnerys of the world, I introduce the word Jewpidity into the language lexicon.
Oops — just got another Jewpid one in my inbox. (”Israel should use the new Kosovo to reach out to Muslims” — since that’s what Serb-killing’s always been about: reaching out to Muslims.) But he’s a Brit, so he’s doubley impaired.
