Robert Wistrich on the Long History of Leftist Jew-Hatred

A good summary, but not quite as explicit as I would have been about the real "neo-Nazis".

"Hatred for America, the West, and Israel thrives beneath the cloak of human rights and social justice. This fanciful branding has not prevented the cause of the “oppressed” from being represented by dictators such as Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Saddam Hussein, and Yasir Arafat. These tyrants have often been worshipped by Western radicals as defenders of “Third World peoples” against U.S. imperialism and Zionism. International solidarity with the Palestinians has given a counterfeit halo of respectability to the world’s most despicable characters. The Islamists are only the latest in a long line of manipulative exploiters of Palestinian or Third World misfortunes. All have indulged in the demonization of Israel as a “genocidal state” engaged in “ethnic cleansing from the day of its birth.”

"Contemporary Marxists and Islamists share a curiously similar apocalyptic agenda of earthly redemption that aspires to the installment of absolute “social justice” through violent means. For both parties, Palestinian martyrdom has become a glowing symbol of “resistance” not only to Israel but also to globalization and the “corrupt” West. At the heart of such radical utopianism, there is the quasi-religious belief that the world will only be “liberated” by the downfall of America and the defeat of the Jews. This chiliastic fantasy has today emerged as a notable point of fusion between the radical anti-Zionist left in the West and the global jihad. Meanwhile, in the real world, the transnational jihadi warriors are in the process of conquering large swathes of northern Syria and Iraq and establishing a new base for their Islamic caliphate."

When one reads facts such as the ones presented above, one can only conclude that Jews who remain married to leftism duffer from serious mental defects, with suicidal tendencies. They are not "self-hating", they are self-adoring Jewish Jew-haters.

Their basking love for themselves and for their own theoretical legendary concern for "the other" willfully blinds them to the existential dangers that are right in front of their own lying eye.

They are dangerous fools.
