New Definition Of "Anti-Semitism": Just Say "Six Million" & Laugh (english)
06 Oct 2002
Modified: 09 Oct 2002
These days almost anything is considered to be “Anti-Semitic”, that Orwellian word which
stops all thought. You know, you’re “Anti-Semitic” if you’re against Israeli snipers killing
12 year old rock throwers, if you think Arik Sharon is a mass murderer, if you think that
Israeli apartheid is wrong, if you think that perhaps Israel WAS involved in 9/11, if you’re
against giving a country (with a GNP of Spain) that hires 100,000 foreign workers to take
out its garbage $4 Billion a year, if you wonder why lobby groups representing less than
4% of the American population control congress, but here’s a new one......
Gretta Duisenberg Accused of Anti-Semitism
Charges are being filed against Gretta Duisenberg, wife of the president of the European
Central Bank, for alleged anti-Semitism.

One of the country's most prominent lawyers, who is Jewish, filed suit against Ms
Duisenberg on behalf of the Jewish community because of remarks she made on the radio.

Ms Duisenberg is collecting signatures for a pro-Palestinian petition called "Stop the
occupation". When asked how many signatures she hoped to collect, she replied: "six
million", and laughed. The lawyer says she was referring to the six million Jews killed by
the Nazis during World War Two.

Banksters vs Banksters (english)
06 Oct 2002
Assuming the wife of the European Central Bank (BundesBank) approves of her husband's profession, she might have said "20 million every year" and laughed.

Since the Anglo-AshkeNAZI Bank of England and Federal Reserve Bank unleashed the fraudulant "legality" of usury and fractional-reverve banking upon the world - and the World Bank Group (another private corporation) murders about 20 million people every year (not to mention massive environmental waste and destruction) - this little drama is like the Republicrats bickering among each other about their usual superficial nonsense.

At least Europe has a much healthier trade balance than the the USA (primarily due to energy efficiency), so the ECB's euro is worth more than the Federal Reserve Corporation's so-called "U.S. dollar".

Hmmmm.... What's worse? Banksters or lawyer/liars? How about exiling them to Afganistan to hunt their own creation?

I laughed. Then cried. Then went back to work on TEA:

Israel fires on Hospital, kills 13 (english)
07 Oct 2002
Israel today kills another 13 Palestinians using U.S. weapons, fires on hospital. I usually would be against this kind of thing, but would that be considered "anti-Semitic" ???? Wouldn't want that!!!

You know, I was with you for a while there, but this is where you go from a reasonable critique to paranoia bordering, yes, on anti-semetism. First of all, to say that the "jewish lobby" represents 4% of the population is absurd (they represent those people who donate money to them and no one else. they certainly don't represent me). And to say they "controll congress" is really ignorant. You know who controls congress? The ruling class. The ruling class includes a lot of Jews, perhaps a dispraportionate number. But to say then that the 4% of the population that is jewish IS the ruling class and control congress through their representatives is the same kind of scapegoating the Nazis employed, along with every onther anti-semetic populist in history.

You say this as if it's the most evil thing a country has ever done, as if it isn't something the US does, as if your purchases of produce at the grocery store don't support a system that relies on exploited migrant labor and the division of the international working class.

And hey, john chance, what the hell does anglo-ashkenazi mean? Is that why you hate the banks, because they're run by anglos and jews? or because of the evil all around the world that they facilitate. I'm forced to wonder about your ideology too, when out of all the things to trash banks about, you trash them for the ethnic makeup of their boards.

Practice anti-racism by being evenhanded and supporting all struggles of oppressed people for freedom, not freaking out everytime some rich fuck hurls a meaningless slander like "anti-semetism" at you. Otherwise, unless you're carefull, you just prove them right.
