Zionists smear UK diplomat for telling the truth

Israel – no criticism allowed

By Gilad Atzmon

Peter Jenkins, Britain’s former representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency, has told the Warwick University Debating Union that a “just war” is not a Jewish notion.

Jenkins was obviously telling the truth but the Zionist Jewish Chronicle is not happy.

The retired Foreign Office diplomat, speaking in a debate on nuclear proliferation in Iran, said: “Israelis don’t practice an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth; they practice 10 eyes for an eye and 10 teeth for a tooth.” He added that “the idea that a just war requires the use of force to be proportionate seems to be a Christian notion and not a Jewish notion”.

The Jewish Chronicle reported this week that the remark prompted the opposing speaker, the Zionist Federation’s Jonathan Sacerdoti, to shout “shame”.

Mr Sacerdoti spoke to the audience in his self-proclaimed capacity as “a son of a Holocaust survivor”. He said: “I suggest that the speech that we heard first, laced with its subtle attempts at anti-Semitism masked behind polite diplomatic chatter, is exactly the problem in this debate … this is not a Jewish issue, this is not an Israel issue, this is a worldwide issue.”

I actually agree with Mr Sacerdoti: Zionist madness is the biggest threat to world peace. It is not just a Jewish issue, it is not an Israel issue, it is a worldwide issue. It is a universal concern.

…it is our intellectual duty to call a spade a spade and to criticize Jewish politics and Jewish culture for what they are. If Jews insist on operating politically, they must accept that their politics and practice will be subjected to scrutiny and criticism.

Yet, I am slightly perplexed. Why is telling the truth about Jewish culture anti-Semitic? Is not the Old Testament far more violent than any Quentin Tarantino film? That is not to  mention the fact that the Jewish state has also managed to buy itself quite a reputation for unrestrained violence.

Mr Sacerdoti added: “It is incredible to think that a man, unashamed to express such a view in public, once had such a senior position on behalf of the UK.”

I would argue that it is our intellectual duty to call a spade a spade and to criticize Jewish politics and Jewish culture for what they are. If Jews insist on operating politically, they must accept that their politics and practice will be subjected to scrutiny and criticism.

Mr Sacerdoti is obviously a hasbara (Israeli propaganda) spin master. He mentions that “this particular view, that Jews do not adhere to the concept of “just war”, implies that Jews are by nature bloodthirsty and unjust. I believe any such generalization about the nature of Jews is racist.”

But there is a slight problem here. Mr Jenkins didn’t speak about Jews, the people, the ethnicity or the race. He was clearly referring to “Israel”, i.e. the Jewish state and to Jewish culture.

The Community Security Trust, another Zionist militia operating in our midst, moved to condemn Mr Jenkins’s remarks. “It is disgusting that students should be exposed to such divisive rubbish. Peter Jenkins appears to be as ignorant of the history of Christian war-making as he is of Jewish values.”

It would be helpful if the Community Security Trust’s spokesman is kind enough to offer some information that could present the nakba (ethnic cleansing and forced dispossession of Palestinians in 1948), the Sabra and Shatila massacre and Operation Cast Lead in the context of a “just war”. It would be helpful also if the Community Security Trust’s rabbis can enlighten us as to how Biblical Samson’s genocidal action fits into the notion of a “just war”.

The truth must be said. Mr Jenkins told the truth and actually used moderate and measured language. I wish the BBC and the Guardian newspaper were as courageous as Mr Jenkins.

I also do no think Zionist organizations should be left to moderate the critical discourse about the Jewish state and Jewish culture.

Watch the debate and witness the revolting Zionist spin and the the relentless Zionist push for World War III.
