CAN A RABBI LIE ABOUT APARTHEID?

South Africa’s Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein

Africa)

The shipyard dogs of
Zionism get ferociously mad whenever Israel is described as a racist and
apartheid state. They argue rather vehemently that it is unfair and
unjust to describe the deformed pariah entity as an apartheid state,
citing the fact that non-Jews in Israel are accorded equal political
rights and are allowed to vote.

Well, I think we do a great
injustice  to language when we call Israel an apartheid state because
the Zionist regime is far more nefarious than all the apartheid and
discrimination in the world combined.

Theoretically, Israel does give
some rights to non-Jewish citizens. However, when these rights are
dealt with in practice, they are effectively devoid of  any substance.
In fact, non-Jews are accorded citizenship in Israel  only in exchange
for coming to terms with Jewish supremacy and inherent discrimination
against them. After all, the state is defined as Jewish first and only
democratic second, meaning that in any conflict between the “Jewish” and
“democratic” aspects of the state, the Jewish component will always
come first.

So what is the point of having
rights and privileges that are used solely for propaganda purposes and
not meant to be implemented in any genuine manner?

Besides,  ”democracy” goes for
the Jews, while  “Jewish supremacy” is smacked in the face of the native
Arab community?

In addition, we all know that
democracy can produce criminal and racist  laws. Fascism is often of a
populist nature, especially  in the absences  of constitutional  checks
and balances which don’t exist in Israel.

Hitler, we must remember,  came
to power via the ballot boxes. And many of the anti-Jewish laws  in
Germany in  the early and mid 1930s were passed by democratically-
elected parliaments just the Israeli Knesset is doing these days.

Today, the “democratic” Israeli
Knesset passes inherently racist laws allowing the deportation of
non-Jewish citizens, the confiscation of non-Jewish  property, and the
systematic persecution of non-Jews.  In other words, the outer form is
democracy but the substance is fascism in its ugliest form.

In a recent article published
in the Jerusalem Post, a mouthpiece of Gush Emunim, the Nazi-minded
settler movement,  Warren Goldstein, a visiting Rabbi from South Africa,
claimed that “the accusation that Israel is apartheid is probably one
of the most unjust accusations that could be made.”

Well, this is a brazen lie.
Israel has separate roads for Palestinians and Jews. Israel has separate
laws for Palestinians and Jews in the West Bank. The Israeli justice
system doesn’t accord equal treatment to  Jews and Palestinians. A Jew
convicted of murdering a Palestinian benefits from all  conceivable
extenuating circumstances and is always given the benefit of the doubt,
while Palestinian suspects are declared guilty even if proven innocent.
Indeed, Jewish soldiers and settlers who have murdered innocent
Palestinians are routinely set free after a brief symbolic period of
 detention or declared unfit to stand trial, or as usual acquitted of
any wrong doing.

We are not talking about a few
isolated cases. In fact, this is the modus operandi of the Israeli
justice system. Ask any human rights observer in occupied Palestine, and
they will tell you volumes about the Nazi nature of the Israeli justice
system.

In many cases, the burden of
proof is the  sole responsibility of the victim’s family. This is not a
genuine legal process aimed at establishing the truth, but rather a
sinister trick aimed at enabling Jewish murderers to escape with
impunity or at least circumvent the due process.

For example, when a Jewish
settler or soldier abducts a Palestinian boy and subjects him to
torture, including firing at his legs or feet,  away from the eyes of
the media, the soldier, if caught,  is not really punished for torturing
the victim, but rather for failing to ensure that no cameramen or
witnesses were watching the criminal act. So the real crime is not the
abduction and shooting of an innocent person, but rather not properly
hiding the abominable act.

In case,  the victim’s family
is poor, e.g. can’t pay the heavy costs of lengthy litigation, the
murderer is set free for lack of sufficient evidence. God knows how many
thousands of innocent Palestinians have been  killed in cold blood by
Jewish thugs and the thugs are set free.

The Rabbi says that while the
South African apartheid regime was evil, it is morally offensive to
compare Israel to apartheid in any way.

Again this is an obscene lie by
a so-called rabbi who is expected to make a distinction between
veracity and mendacity.

In fact, we do a great
injustice to apartheid when  we compare it with Israel. Apartheid is
segregationalist while Israel is eradicationist. Apartheid, at least in
South Africa, wanted to keep the races apart, but Israel’s ultimate goal
is to ethnically cleanse and uproot  the native Palestinians, either by
way of physical extermination as in Dir Yassin or by way of expulsion
and mass deportation. In fact, Israel is more comparable to Nazi Germany
than to the defunct South African apartheid regime.

Gerald Kaufman, an ex- British 
Jewish  Parliamentarian, noted a few years ago  that Israeli atrocities
in Gaza and south Lebanon made the Star of David look like the Swastika
of Hitler.

Undoubtedly, the apartheid
regime in South Africa, which was Israel’s chief  and close ally in the
Black continent, was repulsive in every conceivable aspect. But it was
not more evil than Israel. The notorious regime of ill repute  never
used White phosphorous against civilians,  never demolished thousands of
black homes in order to silence opposition to apartheid. It never
deported millions of native Black South  Africans as Israel has done to
 the Palestinians.

In fact, Israel committed more
crimes per capita than any other country in the world. Israel, one may
solemnly and candidly claim, is a huge crime against humanity.

The racist rabbis goes on,
trying to make evil look good and ugliness look beautiful.

He claims that the problem in
occupied Palestine is actually no more than just a border dispute
between the Jewish people and the Muslim world.

“You have a border dispute
between the Jewish people, represented by the state of Israel, and the
Muslim world, where to draw the 1967 borders. Israel has tried time and
again to resolve that dispute and to make successful negotiations around
that.”

Again, the so-called rabbi is
acting as a public relations officer for Israeli Nazism. He easily
forgets that Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza Strip along with East
Jerusalem in a war of aggression in 1967. He easily forgets that Israel,
instead of responding positively to repeated  Arab and Palestinian
peace offers, including the latest Arab Peace Initiative, has been busy 
stealing Arab land and building Jewish-only settlements for fanatical
Jews indoctrinated in Jewish supremacy.

Does a state that steals its
neighbors land, and transfers its citizens to live on land that belongs
to another people really want peace?

Finally, the so-called rabbi
tries to assure himself that Israel is a just cause.

“We all know that the various
governments of Israel have made mistakes in the past, there is a lot of
self-criticism and self-analysis in the Israeli press. But what we need
to be proud of as Jews is the justice of the cause of the state of
Israel.?

What Just cause is this idiot
talking about? How can the cause of a state that is based on ethnic
cleansing, mass murder, and land theft and lying be just? Or perhaps the
Talmudic sage thinks that all the property of non-Jews belongs to Jews
because God created the entire universe for the sake and benefit of the
Jew?!!!

I really don’t understand how
these so-called rabbis have the moral chutzpah to invoke morality
whenever they try to justify Israeli Nazism. I don’t know what morality
they are talking about.

Well, the Nazis, too, thought
their cause
