Hatred ExposedMany of the current crop of Jew haters use the excuse that they're not anti-Jewish, only anti-Zionist. In fact, in some cases, some of their best friends are Jews. How about that? Well, this coming Thursday, there is a Celebration of Israel at 60 at the Michigan State Fair Grounds in Detroit. To the Jew haters - excuse me - I mean anti-Zionists, we Detroit area Jews are a bunch of racists who should be ashamed of ourselves for daring to celebrate the success of Israel as a thriving multi-ethnic democracy, as the only country in the Middle East that allows freedom of religion, as a technologically advanced nation that has given the world advances in science, agriculture, medicine, etc.
We are racists because we celebrate success and achievement in the face of constant hatred and terrorism instead of mourning the "plight of the Palestinians." We refuse to acknowledge the creation myth of the Palestinians known as the Nakba. We've all heard about the Nakba. To the Israel hating community, it's the catastrophe of five Arab/Muslim armies failing in their mission of genocide against the incipient State of Israel. Millions of hate monkeys across the globe are still frustrated that Israelis refuse to be pushed into the sea, the stated Islamic goal in 1948 and still the stated goal today.
There will be a lot of security at the Israel at 60 celebration. There will also be protesters. God forbid that Jews should be allowed to celebrate freely and openly. It's not allowed in the Muslim world so it shouldn't be allowed anywhere. One has let the veil slip and has revealed straight up anti-Semitism at its most vile. It's not "just" anti-Zionism and anyone who can comprehend what they read can recognize that. Besides the usual canards about Israel, she also talks about the Jews of the Detroit area.
Just how wealthy the expected Nakba celebrants (She means Jews - Harry) are can be seen by contrasting them with the general U.S. population and the State Fair neighborhood, one of Detroit's more diverse, but still majority Black, neighborhoods. According to the "Detroit Area Jewish Population Study, 2005," sponsored by the JFMD, the median income of Detroit area Jewish households was $85,000 and median housing value was $300,000. The national figures for the general U.S. population are: Median Household Income - $45,000, Median Housing Value - $156,000. The comparable figures for the people living in the State Fair neighborhood are even more striking: Median Household Income - $24,016, Median Home Sale Value - $73,000.So in addition to the usual distortion of facts designed to push the "Palestinian narrative" into people's heads, we have the return of the condemnation of that evil, demonic creature known as The Rich Jew. And how does The Rich Jew become rich? Racism, of course. It's as obvious as the hook nose on a Jew's face. Yes, it seems that we Jews in Detroit, not Israel - excuse me - the Zionist Entity, are Shylock and Fagin once again. So what shall it be this time Michelle, inquisition or pogrom? How about plain old fashioned anti-Jewish riots and massacres like you had back in the old days before the existence of Israel? The old days when these stereotypes caused the destruction of entire Jewish communities.
These wide economic gaps are undoubtedly, in no small part, a result of past and ongoing anti-Black racism in America. For instance, the fairgrounds are not far from Detroit's own apartheid wall, also known as the Wailing Wall. Detroit's wall was built circa 1940 and not unlike the apartheid wall that snakes through the West Bank, it was constructed with federal backing over the objections of the Black community in order to separate an existing Black neighborhood from a new White and, according to two local informants, Jewish subdivision.
My grandparents came to this country from Russia and Poland. They came to escape persecution and to build a better life for their children. My father's father was fired from Ford because he was Jewish. Since there was no ACLU or any other "civil rights" group to whine to, my grandfather and grandmother opened a poultry store. In other words, they used the skills they had to continue to make a living, to raise their family, and to contribute to the fabric of American society. There were no complaints about what Ford or the government owed them, there were no demands about what they were entitled to. Had they demanded that they or their Judaism had to be "accommodated" they would have been laughed at by everyone, including the Jewish community.
No, they never became rich, but other Jews did. They didn't demand accommodations either. When they were excluded from the local country club, they built their own. Since this is the land of opportunity - for those who are willing to grasp that opportunity - some Jews, just like some non-Jews have been able to accumulate vast quantities of wealth. If
