Curtis Maynard Murders His Wife and Then Follows His Leader

Curtis Maynard proved without a shadow of doubt that he was insane. Of course, it is no shock, all Jew haters are insane.

Yesterday, Maynard shot his ex wife multiple times before offing himself during a police chase. The cowardly Jooo hating nurse Maynard also shot his 16 year old step daughter who is in the hospital at this time in stable condition.

Maynard used to leave comments on this blog. I tried leaving comments on his blog, but the coward deleted them and then finally moderated so that I wasn't able to squash his insane ramblings.

Maynard wrote well though, even though his thoughts were those of a mental case, and he had a following of equally insane people, who still exist.

What a meaningless life Maynard had. He spent his waking hours railing against the boogey Jew and the black man.

You get one crack at life, and this is how he chose to live it. Again, it takes an insane person to be Curtis Boone Maynard or someone who agrees his lunacy.

He is now worm food, and nobody will miss him.

Incidentally, his wife was an ethnic Mexican, and he was a pro-white Joooo paranoid goofball. An insane white separatist marries a that is crazy. I feel really sorry for what his wife went through, and what the kids had to go through. Hopefully, they will come out of this OK.....eventually.

I wonder if this will serve as a warning to other Joooo haters out there. I think it will for a few. But the mentally unbalanced are hard to cure.

A couple of years ago, another Joooo hating, black hating internet warrior did the same thing. Yankee Jim Leshkevich offed his wife and then himself.

It takes someone with a severe inferiority complex and mental illness to kill a spouse and then kill oneself. But then again, it takes a severe mental illness to blame Joooos for all that is wrong with yourself and the world around you.

I found some comments I read today at various sites amusing. The paranoia of his followers is mind numbing. Some blamed Joooos on Maynard's drinking which lead to him finally snapping.

Elder of Ziyon has a write up on Maynard.

He found this item which is very prophetic. It was written two months ago:

I.D. I couldn't agree with you more. I don't have an account at VNN, but obviously there are a quite a few of us who lurk there on a regular bases, just like I am sure there are a few of them who watch this board.

I would not be surprised if Maynard loses it and decides to go on a "spree" and harms a bunch of innocent people.

I don't know how much you have followed about the guy, but he is a nurse, which means there are people of all races in a vulnerable position under this mentally ill person's care for medications, food, IV's ...

That is the part that bothers me the most.

And it's that piece why I have sort of kept an eye on the guy.

What if this guy decides the JEWS are the reason why his wife won her freedom and successfully was able to save herself and her kids?
And I bet in his twisted pretzel of a mind he has already reasoned some sort of crazy scenario of this sort.

Let's say there are Jewish patients at the hospital where he works and he has the power to now end their lives?

Or now with his anger at his Hispanic wife and his Hispanic lawyer, are Hispanic patients at place of work in danger too?

Are his ex-wife and children at risk?

These are points that have had me concerned about Maynard even before the recent blogging of his divorce drama.

Please note. If you read this blog and you believe what Curtis Maynard believed about Joooos, it isn't too late. Seek help. There are people out there who can help you.

Also, if you are a paranoid Jooo hater worried about how the main stream media will deal with this, don't worry. Maynard was a crackpot, a member of the lunatic fringe. He will not get any notoriety. His life was meaningless....and most importantly, it was meaningless for him.

Jew Haters: If You Are Going To Boycott Israeli Goods, Do It All The Way

If you are going to do it, don't be a hypocrite, do it right:

And for you far left Moonbats, especially those who proudly put up Boycott Israel flash thingies on their blog sidebars, have you ever thought that by boycotting Israel you hurt the 1 million Arabs who live in Israel, and you also hurt the Palestinians in the West Bank, and probably many in Gaza? Probably not, because thinking is obviously thrown out the window. You don't even know who the real victim is anymore.

A White Separatists Nightmare:)

Son Of Holocaust Museum Shooter Von Brunn Calls His Dad A Coward

Sounds like Erik von Brunn, the son of could be a poster child for families where one or both of their parents is a mindless self loathing hater of Jews and other minorities.

I've said it before, that the children of psychopathic "white" separatists (the lunatic fringe) are guaranteed to be mentally abused. And if it is just mental abuse, they should consider themselves lucky.

I pity the children of the haters who I write about on this blog.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The son of white supremacist James von Brunn, who shot a guard at the entrance of Washington's Holocaust museum this week, slammed the "cowardice" of his father's actions on Friday.

"My father's actions are unforgivable," Erik von Brunn, 32, said in a statement to ABC News. "I do not expect, nor will I accept forgiveness for what he has done," he said.

Erik's 88-year-old father reached the entrance of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in the US capital on Wednesday, raised a .22 caliber rifle and fatally shot African-American museum guard Stephen Tyrone Johns, 39, in the chest.

Security guards returned fire, shot von Brunn and prevented him from entering.

Von Brunn will face murder charges for the crime, officials have said.

"I cannot express enough how deeply sorry I am it was Mr Johns, and not my father who lost their life," the shooter's Florida-based son said.

Erik von Brunn said his father's hatred for racial minorities and Jews destroyed his family, and resulted in the divorce between him and Erik's mother.

"My father's beliefs have been a constant source of verbal and mental abuse my family has had to suffer with for many years," he wrote in the statement.

"His views consumed him, and in doing so, not only destroyed his life, but destroyed our family and ruined our lives as well.

"Now, it is not only my families lives that are in shambles, but those who were directly affected by his actions; especially the family of Mr Johns, who bravely sacrificed his life to stop my father."

If convicted, James von Brunn faces life in prison without parole and could face the death penalty.

A search of the shooter's car left in the street outside the museum Wednesday turned up a notebook of handwritten anti-Semitic rants denouncing President Barack Obama as a Jewish puppet.

"The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews. Obama does what his Jew owners tell him to do," said one of the notes, which was signed James W. Von Brunn, according to an FBI affidavit.

Erik von Brunn had blunt words for racists and anti-semites who idolize his father's actions.

"For the extremists who believe my father is a hero: it is imperative you understand what he did was an act of cowardice," he said.

"To physically force your beliefs onto others with violence is not brave, but bullying. Doing so only serves to prove how weak those beliefs are. It is simply desperation, reminiscent of a temper tantrum when a child cannot get his way."

Children of haters, who escape the brainwashing, have to be filled with embarrassment as long as their parents are alive.

Too bad for Erik, he has lived in shame thanks to his father's hate. His father had already done enough damage to him. But now, he will now probably live in shame long after his father finally dies. He really shouldn't, it isn't Erik's fault, not even close. But this is part of the psychological damage haters cause.

Update: Curtis Maynard is back in business, and of course, the whackjob and those he allows to comment on his blog have pretty much concluded that this was an inside job done by Jooooos. LMAO. The lunatic fringe sure does live up to their name:)

Even the scum sucking psychopath John De Nugent isn't trying to deflect the fact that an old piece of shit racist finally took an illegal action that mirrored his beliefs.

“When white people are provoked, some of them will snap,” said John de Nugent… “I think the election of Barack Obama became a tremendous signal of alarm for him.”

Da Nudnick was interviewed by ABC's Good Morning America, where he fessed up that he even thought that Von Brunn was about to take action.

Man, Jew haters are such lunatics.

Making Fun Of Nazi Wannabees

Youtubist Coughlan666 has made a couple of really funny videos at the expense of Nazi wannabees. The first one was made in response to a Hitler loving 17 year old who made a video on Youtube after being dumped by his girlfriend:

And now this song "We Hate Everything" which portrays white supremacists/separatists as the losers which they are:

No offense to Coughlan666, but making fun of Nazi wannabees is like shooting fish in a barrel.

Zionist Conspiracy Freaks Are Delusional

This guy puts it plain English. Zionist conspiracists are the most inane conspiracists:

Zionist conspiracy freaks went out on a limb during the Gaza war by saying the Jews were attacking Gaza to get to the recent oil and gas find. The nuts "thought" Israel was going to capture Gaza.

Of course, I went over to a few of those sites and made comments calling them imbeciles. The oil and gas find goes back to the 90's. In other words, Israel knew about it well before they got out of Gaza in 2005.

Zionist conspiracy freaks learned a lesson. Don't make predictions. Stick to revising history in your delusional Joooo paranoid little way.

A Tribute To Jorg Haider

Here is a scene from Little Nicky:

Neo Nazi Jorg Haider, like many of his followers, had no problem getting hammered behind the wheel. And like many of his followers, he dealt with his homosexual urges by transferring his hate for himself, by hating Jews and non whites.
Apparently, his fatal crash followed a visit to a gay bar. It makes sense that he was mellowing out in his later years, by directly acknowledging he was gay, thus he had less reason to hate himself and transfer that hate outwards.

This is funny. Over at Bill White's website ( there is a lot of speculation that John De Nugent is gay. Read the comments.

Please note: I feel very strongly that people are born gay, and most gays deal with it by being themselves. There are those who resent the urges they are born with and some deal with that by irrationally hating other groups.

Speaking of Bill White and his web site, White (see recent blog post) has been arrested and jailed without bond for allegedly threatening a juror on his web site.

Jewish Voters Make A Judeophobes Look Stupid, Not That They Need Help

Reading Joooo paranoid internet circus freak's blogs, their websites, and watching their Youtube videos, one would think that the majority of Jews must think the same way that the Talmud taught them to think (I'm really cracking up while I'm typing this). Of course, evidence is never on the JPICF's side:

Jewish Voters Favor Obama Over McCain, 57-30 percent; Many Undecided

September 25, 2008 – New York – With less than six weeks to go to Election Day, American Jewish voters favor Senator Barack Obama over Senator John McCain for U.S. president by a margin of 57-30 percent. At the same time, an unexpectedly large number, 13 percent, remain undecided about their vote, according to a new American Jewish Committee (AJC) survey.

Regarding the vice-presidential candidates, 73 percent of American Jews “approve” of Obama’s selection of Sen. Joseph Biden as his running mate, 15 percent “disapprove,” and 13 percent are “not sure.” In contrast, 54 percent of American Jews “disapprove” of McCain’s selection of Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, 37 percent “approve,” and 9 percent are “not sure.”

AJC’s Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion is the first national poll of Jewish voters since the Democratic and Republican conventions. In addition to questions about the November elections, the survey also gauged the views of American Jews on a variety of other issues.

The complete AJC survey, carried out annually since 1997, is available at

Asked which “one issue would you most like the candidates for president to discuss,” 54 percent of American Jews answer “economy,” 11 percent “health care,” 6 percent “war in Iraq,” 5 percent “energy” and “terrorism,” 3 percent “Israel,” 2 percent “immigration,” “education,” “taxes,” and “social security,” and 1 percent “Supreme Court nominations.”

On the energy issue, 75 percent of American Jews favor developing alternative energy sources as the best way for the U.S. to handle its energy needs.

In terms of party affiliation, 56 percent of American Jews identify as Democrats, 17 percent as Republicans, and 25 percent as Independents.

Among Jewish Democrats, 81 percent favor Obama for president, while 84 percent of Jewish Republicans favor McCain. The Independents are evenly divided, with 41 percent supporting McCain and 39 percent Obama.

Differences between Orthodox and non-Orthodox are pronounced in the support given the presidential candidates.

Thus, Obama has the support of 13 percent of Orthodox Jews, as against 59 percent of Conservative Jews, 62 percent of Reform Jews, and 61 percent of the “Just Jewish.”

Conversely, McCain draws 78 percent of Orthodox Jews, as against 26 percent of Conservative Jews, 27 percent of Reform Jews, and 26 percent of the “Just Jewish.”

Jewish women (60 percent) are more likely than Jewish men (54 percent) to support Obama. Conversely, Jewish men (35 percent) are more likely than Jewish women (25 percent) to support McCain.

On the question of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, 42 percent of American Jews support the U.S. taking military action against Iran, while 47 percent are opposed.

Regarding the Arab-Israeli peace process, 56 percent of American Jews do not think “there will come a time when Israel and its Arab neighbors will be able to settle their differences and live in peace;” 38 percent think such a time will come.

A majority, 68 percent, think that Israel cannot achieve peace with a Hamas-led Palestinian government, while 22 percent think Israel can.

The AJC survey was conducted by Synovate (formerly Market Facts), a leading survey-research organization. 914 American Jews were interviewed by telephone between September 8-21, 2008. The margin of error for the sample as a whole is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Problem for Joooo haters is that Joooos pretty much have the same worries and goals collectively as the rest of Western civilization. This is what makes the Joooo hater irrational. The Joooo hater invents a Jooooish boogeyman, one that does not exist.

I Get My Share Of Lunatics Visiting Here

Originally posted on my main blog The Atheist Jew.

I'd like to think that most of my readers are as sane and rational as myself. In fact, I know this is the case because I do read the blogs that have me on their blogrolls.

But I do have nuts that visit. And some of them are so "impressed/shocked/disgusted/etc." by my postings that they write a post about me or at least quote me in their posts.

My site meter is a good source to see if I'm being mentioned, as sometimes I see a few hits from a site I'm not familiar with or a site I normally never get any hits from.
Lots of times a post of mine is linked in a message board. Heck, that is why I blog in the first place. I want to be read by as many people as possible.

I also do a Google Blog search every few days of "atheist Jew." Sometimes I find blogs that have no following write about me (thus no site meter hits), or someone who mentions me but doesn't link to my blog.

Recently, just in the last few days, I've become really popular amongst the nutters.

First, this 9/11 denying nut bar who has a blog named The State Of The Mind (Spreading the Truth about God) dedicated a post to me called 'The Stupidity of "the Atheist Jew"'

Here is what his main gripe is:

Now wait a minute. First of all, there’s no reason to capitalize “Gods,” because “gods” is not a proper noun. Second of all, where exactly do we get the rule that someone is “Jewish” if their mother is Jewish? From Judaism! But what is that to someone who doesn’t believe in Judaism? By accepting this definition of a Jew, he is accepting Judaism as a valid religion, because there is no reason for a non-Jew to accept this definition of a Jew. What an idiot.

I hate atheist pseudo-Jews. I told you: it’s the bacon-eating, Sabbath-violating, don’t-know-much-about-Judaism “Jews” that are the problem; not the real Jews, or those who sympathize with the real Jews. And of course, he’s Leftist in his views. Surprise me not.

Of course, my attempt to explain (in his comment section which he conveniently edited to suit himself) how the concept of an atheist Jew is completely valid was just wilfully denied by this yo yo.

Honestly, I don't think there are too many atheist Jews out there who do not acknowledge themselves as being ethnic Jews. Even by almost every definition, the world, most rabbis, Webster's, Jew haters, my neighbours, and even my God believing family members and friends, I will be a Jew from the day I was born until the day I die.

Even Richard Dawkins recently called himself a cultural Christian. So I think he gets it too.

Lets move on. I recently got a mention from this guy:

'Bill White, is the self-appointed leader of the American National Socialist Workers' Party and the administrator of the antisemitic (and racist) website'

He quoted me in a post named Breaking White Nationalism's Rules. You can almost sympathize with this kook as he seems to realize that he and his ilk have no following. Here is my quote he uses:

The reason you feel censored is because you have no audience.”

I was talking about a different white separatist/supremacist, but you can paint them all with one brush in this instance.

He did say something that I found really funny (funny that it is true and funny that he actually realizes it and doesn't just say to himself, "what the hell am I doing with my life?"):

"I see the morons that compose the “white nationalist” “movement” in this country and I just hand my head in shame that someone might mistake my views for having something in common with them. As I reflected this evening, waiting outside the home of a recalcitrant tenant to collect their paycheck from them when they got home from work, it occurred to me that I’ve done three things wrong in relating to other white-ish activists:

1) I’ve rejected lunacy;

2) I’ve rejected homosexuality;

3) I’ve rejected pedophilia.

If you combine the last two into “queerness”, I’ve only done two things wrong, but with the same effect.

What I have come to realize, having sat in meetings of everything from communists to Democrats to Republicans to white nationalists to all sorts of bizarre offshoots, is that most people who get involved in political groups, regardless of stripe, are lunatics. The question is just whether their lunacy is useful to the people in power, as to how far they get with it. Most rank and file members of the two major parties are as crazy as communists and white nationalists, and one only has to read the DailyKos or FreeRepublic to know it.

What I’ve also come to realize is that by rejecting lunatics and sexual deviants I have written off perhaps two thirds of the white movement right off the top.

He seems somewhat intelligent, but he is totally out to lunch when it comes to his outlook of Jews. You have to wonder what made him turn out that way.

He came to the realization that John de Nugent is a lunatic, maybe he is intelligent enough to look in his own mirror and give himself a slap in the face when it comes to scapegoating Jews. I sum up the insanity of the Judeophobe in this post on my other blog, Judeophobe Watch.

Finally, The Jewish Conspiracy Exposed has written a post about me called "Jewish blogger claims that Judeophobic web sites don't allow critique in their blogs, has all comments moderated by Jewish admin"

This person is a real conspiracy believing nut case:

'Oddly Jews always manage to accuse Goyims of crimes that they do themselves. Now this one Jewish blogger claims that anti-Semites never let God’s chosen ones to refute their claims. But truth is that you cannot see any real critique of Israel or Jews in MSM, which is owned by Jews. But when you visit few blogs and forums that allow

Actually you can go to and be a Jew and debunk, refute, chastise and debate with them. I have no moderation at all in this blog, only spam filter that might caught suspicious postings. But this Jew who says that anti-Semites don’t let Jews to debunk is just typical Ghetto Jews, full of Jewish lies. Jews have given me death threats thru my comments, and I didn’t start to moderate comments. I think it’s good that kikes will post to my blog, and then people will see what soulless creatures they really are.'

I pointed out many anti-semitic web sites that don't allow my comments. I also explained why I used comment moderation for the longest time.

Like him, but for different reasons obviously:), I like it when I get nutters to comment on my blogs, and I always publish them as long as they are on topic. These whackjobs make for excellent entertainment, and I want as many people as possible to be informed they actually exist, and get entertained at the same time.

Curtis Maynard Admits He Has The Mind Of A Nine Year Old Girl

If you don't believe me, check this out. Read about him gloating about his life long mental abuse of his daughter: turning the poor girl into an irrational hating machine; a chip off the ole block.

I wonder if Curtis' dad mentally abused him too.

Honestly, Maynard and his crowd of Joooo paranoid internet circus freaks resemble nothing more than little kids who never grew up.

Their obsession with skin colour is beyond ridiculous. White Power? Why not Pink Power. Their skin is pink in most cases. To put emphasis on skin colour is so freakin silly.

Skin colour doesn't make for ideology. Neither does ethnicity. But these children are too obsessed to get it.

Joooos, who rule their minds in most cases, have very little in common with each other.
There are Orthodox Joooos, Reform Joooos, Atheist Joooos, etc.

There are Joooos who vote Republican, and those who vote Democrat. There are those who don't vote.

There is no Jooooish ideology.

Too bad for Curtis and his buddies, he will waste his entire life on his obsession. Curtis is a mere child who never grew up. Feel sorry for him, if anything, and pity his poor daughter.

It's The Jews, Stupid

"The uniqueness of anti-Semitism lies in the fact that no other people in the world have ever been charged simultaneously with alienation from society and with cosmopolitanism, with being capitalistic exploiters and also revolutionary communist advocators. The Jews were accused of having an imperious mentality, at the same time they're a people of the book. They're accused of being militant aggressors, at the same time as being cowardly pacifists. With being a Chosen people, and also having an inferior human nature. With both arrogance and timidity. With both extreme individualism and community adherence. With being guilty of the crucifixion of Jesus and at the same time held to account for the invention of Christianity."

- A speech about the irrationality of anti-Semitism
by professor Michael Curtis, of Rutgers University, 1987

Reminder to self: Never shake hands with Curtis Maynard. Smelly armpit sweat bacteria can be contagious.

Symptoms of Judeophobia - Fear of Jews:
breathlessness, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, feeling sick, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to speak or think clearly, a fear of dying, becoming mad or losing control, a sensation of detachment from reality or a full blown anxiety attack.

You are not the only one to suffer from this phobia. Most sufferers are surprised to learn that they are far from alone in this surprisingly common, although often unspoken, phobia.

Judeophobia is an intense fear of something that poses no actual danger. While adults with Judeophobia realize that these fears are irrational, they often find that facing, or even thinking about facing, the feared situation brings on a panic attack or severe anxiety.

There is a Way Out

Imagine what your life will be like when you know that you are not "defective". When you can be confident and at ease in situations where you used to feel your phobia. And when you can talk about your former fear symptoms as though you are describing a movie where the character is someone else, not you.

Treatment Options


Hypnotherapy helps to reprogram your subconscious "programs" that may be part of your fear. When these programs are "de-bugged" the symptoms of Judeophobia often are minimized. However, some people don't like the feeling of loss of control in allowing someone else to play with their personal "software". Hypnotherapy is save and works fast.

Hypnotherapy Solutions

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP is basically the study and practice of how we create our reality. From the NLP viewpoint, a phobia is the result of your programs or "constructs" that you have created that don't work very well. With NLP, these constructs are revealed and "re-programmed" so that the Judeophobia is minimized and often eliminated. Usually the interventions are quite rapid and effective.

NLP Solutions

Energy Psychology

Energy Psychology is emerging as an excellent therapy for fears and phobias because in studies it is shown to be rapid, safe, effective and long-lasting. It is based on a theory and practice that has been around for a couple of thousand years. It has the same foundation or roots as acupuncture, except in this case there are no needles used. You could call it emotional acupuncture - without the needles. Recent scientific studies have shown it to be very effective.

Energy Psychology combines the benefits of the above treatment therapies.

* You quickly and easily change your behaviors.
* Your thought patterns change, often very quickly.
* You are able to relax.
* You develop skills and techniques that are useful for a lifetime in all situations.

A Dialog About Anti-Semitism by Sam Vaknin

Rabid anti-Semitism, coupled with inane and outlandish conspiracy theories of world dominion, is easy to counter and dispel. It is the more "reasoned", subtle, and stealthy variety that it pernicious. "No smoke without fire," - say people - "there must be something to it!".

In this dialog I try to deconstruct a "mild" anti-Semitic text. I myself wrote the text - not an easy task considering my ancestry (a Jew) and my citizenship (an Israeli). But to penetrate the pertinent layers - historical, psychological, semantic, and semiotic - I had to "enter the skin" of "rational", classic anti-Semites, to grasp what makes them click and tick, and to think and reason like them.

I dedicated the last few months to ploughing through reams of anti-Semitic tracts and texts. Steeped in more or less nauseating verbal insanity and sheer paranoia, I emerged to compose the following.

The Anti-Semite:

The rising tide of anti-Semitism the world over is universally decried. The proponents of ant-Semitism are cast as ignorant, prejudiced, lawless, and atavistic. Their arguments are dismissed off-handedly.

But it takes one Jew to really know another. Conditioned by millennia of persecution, Jews are paranoid, defensive, and obsessively secretive. It is impossible for a gentile - whom they hold to be inferior and reflexively hostile - to penetrate their counsels.

Let us examine anti-Semitic arguments more closely and in an unbiased manner:

Argument number one - Being Jewish is a racial distinction - not only a religious one

If race is defined in terms of genetic purity, then Jews are as much a race as the remotest and most isolated of the tribes of the Amazon. Genetic studies revealed that Jews throughout the world - largely due to centuries of in-breeding - share the same genetic makeup. Hereditary diseases which afflict only the Jews attest to the veracity of this discovery.

Judaism is founded on shared biology as much as shared history and customs. As a religion, it proscribes a conjugal union with non-Jews. Jews are not even allowed to partake the food and wine of gentiles and have kept their distance from the communities which they inhabited - maintaining tenaciously, through countless generations, their language, habits, creed, dress, and national ethos. Only Jews become automatic citizens of Israel (the infamous Law of Return).

The Jewish Response:

Race has been invariably used as an argument against the Jews. It is ironic that racial purists have always been the most fervent anti-Semites. Jews are not so much a race as a community, united in age-old traditions and beliefs, lore and myths, history and language. Anyone can become a Jew by following a set of clear (though, admittedly, demanding) rules. There is absolutely no biological test or restriction on joining the collective that is known as the Jewish people or the religion that is Judaism.

It is true that some Jews are differentiated from their gentile environments. But this distinction has largely been imposed on us by countless generations of hostile hosts and neighbors. The yellow Star of David was only the latest in a series of measures to isolate the Jews, clearly mark them, restrict their economic and intellectual activities, and limit their social interactions. The only way to survive was to stick together. Can you blame us for responding to what you yourselves have so enthusiastically instigated?

The Anti-Semite:

Argument number two - The Jews regard themselves as Chosen, Superior, or Pure

Vehement protestations to the contrary notwithstanding - this is largely true. Orthodox Jews and secular Jews differ, of course, in their perception of this supremacy. The religious attribute it to divine will, intellectuals to the outstanding achievements of Jewish scientists and scholars, the modern Israeli is proud of his invincible army and thriving economy. But they all share a sense of privilege and commensurate obligation to civilize their inferiors and to spread progress and enlightenment wherever they are. This is a pernicious rendition of the colonial White Man's Burden and it is coupled with disdain and contempt for the lowly and the great unwashed (namely, the gentiles).

The Jewish Response:

There were precious few Jews among the great colonizers and ideologues of imperialism (Disraeli being the exception). Moreover, to compare the dissemination of knowledge and enlightenment to colonialism is, indeed, a travesty.

We, the Jews, are proud of our achievements. Show me one group of people (including the anti-Semites) who isn't? But there is an abyss between being justly proud of one's true accomplishments and feeling superior as a result. Granted, there are narcissists and megalomaniacs everywhere and among the members of any human collective. Hitler and his Aryan superiority is a good example.

The Anti-Semite:

Argument number three - Jews have divided loyalties

It is false to say that Jews are first and foremost Jews and only then are they the loyal citizens of their respective countries. Jews have unreservedly fought and sacrificed in the service of their homelands, often killing their coreligionists in the process. But it is true that Jews believe that what is good for the Jews is good for the country they reside in. By aligning the interests of their adopted habitat with their narrower and selfish agenda, Jews feel justified to promote their own interests to the exclusion of all else and all others.

Moreover, the rebirth of the Jewish State presented the Jews with countless ethical dilemmas which they typically resolved by adhering uncritically to Tel-Aviv's official line. This often brought them into direct conflict with their governments and non-Jewish compatriots and enhanced their reputation as untrustworthy and treacherous.

Hence the Jewish propensity to infiltrate decision-making centers, such as politics and the media. Their aim is to minimize conflicts of interests by transforming their peculiar concerns and preferences into official, if not always consensual, policy. This viral hijacking of the host country's agenda is particularly evident in the United States where the interest of Jewry and of the only superpower have become inextricable.

It is a fact - not a rant - that Jews are over-represented in certain, influential, professions (in banking, finance, the media, politics, the film industry, publishing, science, the humanities, etc.). This is partly the result of their emphases on education and social upward mobility. But it is also due to the tendency of well-placed Jews to promote their brethren and provide them with privileged access to opportunities, funding, and jobs.

The Jewish Response:

Most modern polities are multi-ethnic and multi-cultural (an anathema to anti-Semites, I know). Every ethnic, religious, cultural, political, intellectual, and economic or business group tries to influence policy-making by various means. This is both legitimate and desirable. Lobbying has been an integral and essential part of democracy since it was invented in Athens 2500 years ago. The Jews and Israelis are no exception.

Jews are, indeed, over-represented in certain professions in the United States. But they are under-represented in other, equally important, vocations (for instance, among company CEOs, politicians, diplomats, managers of higher education institutions, and senior bankers). Globally, Jews are severely under-represented or not-existent in virtually all professions due to their demography (aging population, low birth-rates, unnatural deaths in wars and slaughters).

The Anti-Semite:

Argument number four - Jews act as a cabal or mafia

There is no organized, hierarchical, and centralized worldwide Jewish conspiracy. Rather the Jews act in a manner similar to al-Qaida: they freelance and self-assemble ad hoc in cross-border networks to tackle specific issues. Jewish organizations - many in cahoots with the Israeli government - serve as administrative backup, same as some Islamic charities do for militant Islam. The Jews' ability and readiness to mobilize and act to further their plans is a matter of record and the source of the inordinate influence of their lobby organizations in Washington, for instance.

When two Jews meet, even randomly, and regardless of the disparities in their background, they immediately endeavor to see how they can further each other's interests, even and often at the expense of everyone else's.

Still, the Jewish diaspora, now two millennia old, is the first truly global phenomenon in world affairs. Bound by a common history, a common set of languages, a common ethos, a common religion, common defenses and ubiquitous enemies - Jews learned to closely cooperate in order to survive.

No wonder that all modern global networks - from Rothschild to Reuters - were established by Jews. Jews also featured prominently in all the revolutionary movements of the past three centuries. Individual Jews - though rarely the Jewish community as a whole - seem to benefit no matter what.

When Czarist Russia collapsed, Jews occupied 7 out of 10 prominent positions in both the Kerensky (a Jew himself) government and in the Lenin and early Stalin administrations. When the Soviet Union crumbled, Jews again benefited mightily. Three quarters of the famous "oligarchs" (robber barons) that absconded with the bulk of the defunct empire's assets were - you guessed it - Jews.

The Jewish Response:

Ignoring the purposefully inflammatory language for a minute, what group does not behave this way? Harvard alumni, the British Commonwealth, the European Union, the Irish or the Italians in the United States, political parties the world over ... As long as people co-operate legally and for legal ends, without breaching ethics and without discriminating against deserving non-members - what is wrong with that?

The Anti-Semite:

Argument number five - The Jews are planning to take over the world and establish a world government

This is the kind of nonsense that discredits a serious study of the Jews and their role in history, past and present. Endless lists of prominent people of Jewish descent are produced in support of the above contention. Yet, governments are not the mere sum of their constituent individuals. The dynamics of power subsist on more than the religious affiliation of office-holders, kingmakers, and string-pullers.

Granted, Jews are well introduced in the echelons of power almost everywhere. But this is still a very far cry from a world government. Neither were Jews prominent in any of the recent moves - mostly by the Europeans - to strengthen the role of international law and attendant supranational organizations.

The Jewish Response:

What can I say? I agree with you. I would only like to set the record straight by pointing out the fact that Jews are actually under-represented in the echelons of power everywhere (including in the United States). Only in Israel - where they constitute an overwhelming majority - do Jews run things.

The Anti-Semite:

Argument number six - Jews are selfish, narcissistic, haughty, double-faced, dissemblers. Zionism is an extension of this pathological narcissism as a colonial movement

Judaism is not missionary. It is elitist. But Zionism has always regarded itself as both a (19th century) national movement and a (colonial) civilizing force. Nationalist narcissism transformed Zionism into a mission of acculturation ("White Man's Burden").

In "Altneuland" (translated to Hebrew as "Tel Aviv"), the feverish tome composed by Theodore Herzl, Judaism's improbable visionary - Herzl refers to the Arabs as pliant and compliant butlers, replete with gloves and tarbushes. In the book, a German Jewish family prophetically lands at Jaffa, the only port in erstwhile Palestine. They are welcomed and escorted by "Briticized" Arab gentlemen's gentlemen who are only too happy to assist their future masters and colonizers to disembark.

This age-old narcissistic defence - the Jewish superiority complex - was only exacerbated by the Holocaust.

Nazism posed as a rebellion against the "old ways" - against the hegemonic culture, the upper classes, the established religions, the superpowers, the European order. The Nazis borrowed the Leninist vocabulary and assimilated it effectively. Hitler and the Nazis were an adolescent movement, a reaction to narcissistic injuries inflicted upon a narcissistic (and rather psychopathic) toddler nation-state. Hitler himself was a malignant narcissist, as Fromm correctly noted.

The Jews constituted a perfect, easily identifiable, embodiment of all that was "wrong" with Europe. They were an old nation, they were eerily disembodied (without a territory), they were cosmopolitan, they were part of the establishment, they were "decadent", they were hated on religious and socio-economic grounds (see Goldhagen's "Hitler's Willing Executioners"), they were different, they were narcissistic (felt and acted as morally superior), they were everywhere, they were defenseless, they were credulous, they were adaptable (and thus could be co-opted to collaborate in their own destruction). They were the perfect hated father figure and parricide was in fashion.

The Holocaust was a massive trauma not because of its dimensions - but because Germans, the epitome of Western civilization, have turned on the Jews, the self-proclaimed missionaries of Western civilization in the Levant and Arabia. It was the betrayal that mattered. Rejected by East (as colonial stooges) and West (as agents of racial contamination) alike - the Jews resorted to a series of narcissistic responses reified by the State of Israel.

The long term occupation of territories (metaphorical or physical) is a classic narcissistic behavior (of "annexation" of the other). The Six Days War was a war of self defence - but the swift victory only exacerbated the grandiose fantasies of the Jews. Mastery over the Palestinians became an important component in the psychological makeup of the nation (especially the more rightwing and religious elements) because it constitutes "Narcissistic Supply".

The Jewish Response:

Happily, sooner or later most anti-Semitic arguments descend into incoherent diatribe. This dialog is no exception.

Zionism was not conceived out of time. It was born in an age of colonialism, Kipling's "white man's burden", and Western narcissism. Regrettably, Herzl did not transcend the political discourse of his period. But Zionism is far more than Altneuland. Herzl died in 1904, having actually been deposed by Zionists from Russia who espoused ideals of equality for all, Jews and non-Jews alike.

The Holocaust was an enormous trauma and a clarion call. It taught the Jews that they cannot continue with their historically abnormal existence and that all the formulas for accommodation and co-existence failed. There remained only one viable solution: a Jewish state as a member of the international community of nations.

The Six Days War was, indeed, a classic example of preemptive self-defense. Its outcomes, however, deeply divide Jewish communities everywhere, especially in Israel. Many of us believe that occupation corrupts and reject the Messianic and millennial delusions of some Jews as dangerous and nefarious.

Perhaps this is the most important thing to remember:

Like every other group of humans, though molded by common experience, Jews are not a monolith. There are liberal Jews and orthodox Jews, narcissists and altruists, unscrupulous and moral, educated and ignorant, criminals and law-abiding citizens. Jews, in other words, are like everyone else. Can we say the same about anti-Semites? I wonder.

Someone Told Me Today That The Holocaust Never Happened

And since this site is getting hit by Joooo paranoid internet circus freaks at this moment, I figure I might as well post this movie:

Thanks for reminding me to remember the Holocaust.

Now this is interesting. On the recently opened up Nazi Archives, Al Jazeera English did the following piece:

I asked a person who was there once (not a Jew) why would someone would deny the Holocaust.
His answer was shame, guilt, but mostly resentment
