« Strange Herring Quote of the Day | Main | The enemies arrayed against Israel have NO SHAME. ONLY AUDACITY. »

What are these people FOR? You're talking about a vast assortment of creepy characters here, from Barack Obama to David Duke, so they're obviously for an indescribable hodgepodge of stuff. I'd venture to say, though, that there is one thing they're ALL for: a world free of Jews. That's true, I think, for both Israel-hating non-Jews AND Israel-hating Jews. Despite the noisy protestations of the latter group, I'm becoming convinced that not only would they not miss Israel and Judaism if both suddenly vanished -- they'd actually feel more comfortable, more at-home, in an Israel-free and Jew-free world. In this regard, I don't think there's a dime's worth of difference between Duke and, say, Noam Chomsky or Norman Finkelstein. Although I will say this for Duke: at least he's open and honest about his dreams and aspirations. Most of his Jewish pals can't seem to muster the candor to tell us what they really want. So why not use "pro-Jew" in place of "pro-Israel"? In the end, the two are synonymous -- notwithstanding the frequently heard phoney-baloney that "Condemning Israel doesn't mean you're antisemitic." And who gives a damn what label the Jew-haters may come up with to exculpate themselves? The best thing we Jews and Zionists can do for ourselves at this juncture is to speak the plainest possible English -- without worrying about the responses of our enemies. Never in my lifetime has plain talk been more urgently needed than it is now.
