The Face of Modern Antisemitism

In a speech delivered Wednesday, that was supposed to be the pièce de résistance for one of the dumbest men to take up space in the political class, John Forbes Kerry declared himself an anti-Semite. He was not that polite about either. If he had simply said, “I hate Jews” that would be better than what he actually said. Specifically he said, “Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, but it cannot be both.” In other words, he hates the very concept of Judaism, not just a particular manifestation of it.

The implication, the only way to interpret it, is that he thinks Judaism is incompatible with liberal democracy. There’s never been a time when he has hinted at the same argument with regards to Islam. He has not even said this about Christianity. That would be laughably stupid, but Lurch is a laughably stupid man. No, he specifically singled out Judaism for this argument. Judaism is incompatible with democracy. Presumably, he would argue that Jews can either be Jewish or citizens of a democracy, but not both.

Sensible people have pointed out for years that Islam is incompatible with modern liberal democracy. The reason we say this is Muslims regularly say that Islam is incompatible with Western liberalism. Logically, Imams and Muslim scholars are good authorities on these issues so taking them at their word is a good idea. The fact that everywhere Muslims get to vote they go for theocracy confirms these claims. Muslims are not fond of democracy and they really hate modern liberal democracy.

Israel is a Jewish state and a liberal democracy. Christians and Muslims are free to do their thing, as long as they abide by the laws of Israel, which are written by the Israeli parliament. In theory, Israelis could vote to fling open their borders and let the Muslims pour into the country. They can vote for all sorts of things, because it is a democracy, but they choose to be a Jewish state that preserves itself as the homeland of world Jewry. As a sovereign people, that is their right and consistent with western liberal democracy.

John Kerry disagrees. He does not thinks Jews have a place in a liberal democracy, even one of their own. The modern Progressive sees national and ethnic identity as obstacles to the glorious future. It’s why they embrace open borders and multiculturalism. They truly believe that obliterating ethnic and national identity is the key to the lock. Jews are the most stubborn of ethnic groups because they combine race and religion into a single, immutable identity. That simply cannot work in the glorious future.

It was always just a matter of time before American progressives got around to Jew-hating. Once you go down the road of multiculturalism, you eventually end up trying to erase anything resembling cultural identity. Now that you-know-who is far enough in the past, no longer in the rear view mirror for most people, taking on the tree stump of ethnic identity was inevitable. For 2,000 years, Jews have kept their thing going in the West, despite every conceivable attempt to erase them. Now it is the Left’s shot at them.

Seemed to me he meant that Cathedralist “democracy”, for that particular country, means abandoning the Jewish ethnic character of the state — letting the Arabs take over. He clearly favors that outcome, if he’s putting it in those terms: As a Cathedral bishop, he regards “democracy” as the highest possible value — if you can be Cathedral-Democracy or else some other thing, the former is the only choice you can be allowed to make. He may or may not fully grasp that this means a whole lot of dead and displaced Jews in practice. He probably has a dim notion… Read more »

True…Unfortunately, prominent Jews in the west, and some in Israel, who are almost universally leftist, have been extremely reckless by advocating and funding the entry of large numbers of moslems and other 3d worlders into those democracies. In fact, polls continue to show that western Jews prefer moslems to Christians. This is both reckless and irrational, as almost all of these “immigrants” are anti-Israel….If the moslems get control of, say, France’s nuclear arsenal, the fruits of this recklessness will be epic….

Baloney, as shown by the fact that Israel is exclusively run by and for the Ashkenazi minority. Israel was created by Irgun terrorism, including blowing up the King David Hotel, and expanded by ethnic cleansing in the supposedly Palestinian territory.

Respectfully, I took a somewhat different interpretation from Kerry’s sentence, as read in context. Kerry was speaking of one-state and two-state “solutions.” He said, “Today, there are a number — there are a similar number of Jews and Palestinians living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. They have a choice. They can choose to live together in one state or they can separate into two states. But here is a fundamental reality, if the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or Democratic, it cannot be both. And it won’t ever really be at peace.” I… Read more »

I was about to post something similar to this, that’s how I interpreted it too, there only options in a single state solution would be an apartheid type system, some sort of gerrymandering where Jewish votes were worth more than Palestinian votes, so not true democracies or a more final solution, not considered democratic in this day and age.

Barring annihilation off Israel by an Iranian nuke, the dream of the terrorists is the so-called one state solution. They know that apartheid would be internationally condemned and would end as South Africa did, with them in control and repressing Jews, or slowly killing them. This is probably the scenario Obama and Kerry like most as it would be “political” not violent.

Professor Eugene Kontorovich gives a clear explanation of which legal bodies have the power to influence the borders of countries, and more importantly, which do not.

What Secretary Kerry said was entirely accurate. If Israel annexes the lands currently under the PA, Israel will in short order have an Arab majority. It therefore could no longer be considered a Jewish state, unless anti-democratic measures were taken to prevent political dominance by the Arab majority.

American presidents have consistently opposed expanding Jewish settlements in the West Bank, beginning with Ronald Reagan. Far from being “anti-semitic,” Kerry and this administration (and past administrations) are simply trying to prevent the Israelis from shooting themselves in the foot for some short-term political advantage.

I have always been confounded that in past Israeli governments, so much territory has been “conceded” back that has been won in wars that the Arabs started.

In my “yes, I’m dreaming” world Senator Schumer would have led his colleagues in “crossing the aisle” to join the Republican party.

His paternal grandparents were Austro-Hungarian Jewish immigrants who converted to Catholicism. He’s a traitor to his own heritage.

Camoflauge, like changing names or intermarraige. My own ancestors were called “Conversos”.

I think Wilbur Hassenfus has the right of it, but it can be put in more neutral terms. Or neutral from a certain point of view. The idea has always been that if there is a 2 state solution, one will have an Arab majority and the other Jewish. Both could be democracies without affecting that, though only the latter actually would be a democracy. If there is a 1-state solution in which Israel reaches the Jordan at all points, it was assumed this would have an Arab plurality so large that calling it a Jewish state would be explicitly… Read more »

Its amazing how quickly our politics has been taken over by the Saudis and UAE guys without anyone in particular noticing. A decade and a half ago it was all the Israelis, all the time. Now all these guys are funded by the Arabs. Its kind of like how Microsoft realized it needed to go heavy into lobbying after the government came after it because of the Netscape browser anti-trust thing. After 9/11 and the Iraq war the Arabs have gone full bore and for the past half decade at least we have been more or less on the side… Read more »

UNSCR 2332 demonstrates just how ridiculous the UN is, since it ignores or erases UNSCR 242 and, more importantly, The Palestine Mandate of 1922. The Jews were given everything west of Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea, period.

As to Kerry, he is an interesting character. He can have many different personas: stupid, arrogant, noisome, obtuse to name just a few. On a good day he can be all those things. What a multi-tasker. 23 days and counting.

Kerry apparently comes from a string of relatives who wanted to be someone else. From a source that sounds reliable – a woman searching her own roots who found a connection to Kerry (poor soul). An excerpt from an interesting read: After the beer maker’s first wife died, he married Mathilde Frankel, and they had a son named Fritz Kohn — who would be Kerry’s grandfather. In time, the half-brothers, Bernhard and Fritz, decided that their Kohn name and their Jewish heritage made it too difficult to advance in the many anti-Semitic quarters of the Austrian Empire. Bernhard changed the… Read more »

Everything in the state; nothing outside the state. Sure Mussolini said it , but it really began with the civil constitution of the clergy in the constituent assembly after the French Revolution. When government is your God things like this are a natural consequence. The idea that you can’t live with any inconsistencies and that power is necessarily expressed in a unitary manner leads to things like this. Christianity introduced the idea of the two swords, one secular and one religious, that could balance themselves. This was in part based on the covenant relationship between God and Israel in the… Read more »

well well the muppet has now decreed “Israel can either be a democracy or a Jewish state but not both” This gem of wisdom from a moral degenerate who’s only claim to fame is that he serially marries well. Like his boss curious George he has never had a responsible non government job his entire life. After HRC i figured there couldn’t be a worse Sec of State, needless to say i was wrong. What everyone has to remember is the contents of that speech were written buy people who “Own and Operate OBAMA” (POOO) neither Obama or Kerry could… Read more »

“Once you go down the road of multiculturalism, you eventually end up trying to erase anything resembling cultural identity.” This only applies to *white ethnic groups as far as the left is concerned. We’re supposed to embrace “salad bowl” multiculturalism for all non-white groups. Progressives consider it unforgivably racist, for example, to frown upon female genital mutilation in Somali immigrant communities in flyover country. Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but FGM in Muslim immigrant communities is a topic that’s off limits. They also consider “colorblindness”, i.e. viewing people as individuals regardless of their race, as an unforgivable sin.… Read more »

Kerry is half Jewish, right?! In any event, the invention of the State of Israel has been a distinct negative for Americans and American foreign policy, which Israel has repeatedly attempted (usually successfully) to hijack. The last President to stand up to Israel was Ike, who in 1956 ordered them out of captured Egyptian territory. When the Israelis balked, Ike added the phrase “or else” to his ultimatum.Later on, Nixon bailed out Israel in the 1973 War…I’m all in favor of a Jewish ethno-state, but only if it can sustain itself without American subsidies and support, whether that be economic,… Read more »

Oh come on Kokor. You mean to tell me that you have no empathy for the ones who are put upon by all the neighborhood bully’s? Israel issurrounded by Arabs and terrorist, and supported by many close and distant governments who only wish ill on them and their homeland. Presumably international organizations who are “supposed” to be non-partisan in managing global “peace” are nothing of the sort. While the underdog, so to speak, they are not dumb. They have proven themselves quite resilient, brave and determined but it goes a long way to have friends. I’m sure if you were… Read more »

“It was always just a matter of time before American progressives got around to Jew-hating. Once you go down the road of multiculturalism, you eventually end up trying to erase anything resembling cultural identity.”

while Trump is not the perfect solution he has successfully tilted the progressive focus toward something other than the American public. Lets hope it enough for honorable people to get their feet under them and banish the evils of multiculturalism into the toilet it deserves

So the Democrats have expelled blue collar workers, gun owners, Christians, and anyone who doesn’t wholeheartedly buy into the full pantheon of SJW insanity. Now they just expelled the Jews. (Not necessarily the secular Hollywood types, but all the ones who actually still practice the religion.)

Great job Obama / Kerry / Soros. Your destruction of the DNC is complete.

I wonder if liveshot’s antisemitism stems from his claim of having a Jewish Grandad? No one knows with this halfwit, his entire identity is mythology. Jewish grandparent, only Irish every six years, and did you know he was in Vietnam? — with his own movie camera… I’ve met a lot of Jewish people who border on antisemitism via self loathing, it seems to be a thing with the Eastern Euro origin types. Nonetheless, this “man” is a fool and has only managed to pull the wool over the eyes of dull witted partisans and a pair of wealthy socialites. JFK,… Read more »

Lurch is one strange dude. Generally people of modest intelligence figure it out and adjust their public pronouncements accordingly. Never happened with Kerry. And he presumes that other people are utterly fascinated with whatever he has to say on a topic. Unfortunately, we both summer in the same place and the stories (which I’ve been told first hand) of him pinning some poor 20-something girl in the verbal equivalent of a Full Nelson at the Boardinghouse bar (and elsewhere-though no confirmations of a “score”) are legion. And this was even before poor Theresa was med-evac’d off island with what was… Read more »

The face of modern anti-Semitism is itself semitic, then, as Kerry’s background is partially Jewish (though subsequently converted to Catholicism). Then again, that might go to explain why he’s against Judaism.

He’s actually calling for their extermination. What he means by “democracy” is what liberals in America typically mean by “democracy”: we get what we want, everybody else kneels. In the case of Israel, that means a demographic overthrow of the Jewish state via “democracy”, then the newly elected leaders get what they want…extermination of the Jews. It’s not like the Palestinians haven’t been clear about their intentions. Bonus insult: Israel is the only stable, pluralistic, democracy in the region, and arabs and Jews have the highest standard of living as well. Secretary Kerry and President Obama – as the have… Read more »

I always thought that the American role in Palestinian negotiations was just Kabuki Theater to keep money rolling in to the imperial capitol. Otherwise they have never made any sense to me. Everybody knows that the Arabs one and all deeply want to exterminate Israel and Jews everywhere. Yet Cloud Folk repeatedly invite Israeli leftists to cut their own people’s throat: They reluctantly decline. American Jewish money flows to Republicans in Congress, Gulf Arab money flows to the Arabists in the State Dept. and to the DNC. Rinse and Repeat. Now Lurch wants to tell us that this is all… Read more »

On the upside, Kerry did make it crystal clear that the Democrat party is right there with other extreme Leftists in its Antisemitism. So now it’s official.

All I can say is, Madame Tussauds is going to have a very hard time indeed trying to make this visage lifelike. The Horror. All that Botox and polymer filler, the yellow cast to the skin….ghastly. Boris Karloff is spinning in his grave, in envy. My advice to the good Madame is, complete the bust from old photographs, leave it on the workbench, dial the heat up to about 115°F and leave it overnight to let the physics of materials take their course. It’ll be a spitting image by morning, and you’ll be richly rewarded – trust me – the… Read more »

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. The progressive left all around the world have embraced Islam as their ally because it fits into their narrative of oppressed people in need of saving. Money from the gulf monarchies looks to me like a protection money in the case of the clintons. There is more than enough money in the US so the foreign funds are not needed . The militant wing also welcomes them as their shock troops. As an outsider I might be getting things wrong but it looks to me that the term itself has become outdated . Everyone… Read more »

Am I the only one that has noticed Lurch sticking his tongue out and licking his lips all the time while he’s speaking? It looks like some Jabba the Hut crap.

Good article.

However, the reason sensible people say Islam is not compatible with Democracy is NOT because Muslims say it isn’t.

The reason is because Islam says, “Apostates” should be put to death.

This goes against Freedom of Conscience and Freedom of Speech, which are the intellectual foundation of Democracy.
