“Zionism and anti-Semitism are almost exactly the same thing. The key difference is how they are marketed.”

Avram Meitner’s brave, concise & accurate post on Facebook today:

‘[…] Hitler WAS one of Zionism’s biggest supporters. […]
Zionism and anti-Semitism are almost exactly the same thing.
The key difference is how they are marketed. […]’

  1. Thanks Richard, very interesting I know when my parents left Austria in early 39 they were encouraged to leave provided they didn’t take anything with them.


  2. Neither brave nor accurate and you ought to be ashamed of yourself for reposting. If you, or he, bothered to read Mein Kampf, his take on Zionism — like everything else involving Jews — was paranoid – a belief in a Jewish worldwide conspiracy to harm gentiles. That certainly wasn’t Herzl’s view, but it was Hitler’s. He didn’t see Zionism as a potential “solution”, writing: “For while Zionism tries to make the other part of the world believe that the national self-consciousness of the Jew finds satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian State, the Jews again most slyly dupe the stupid goiim. [Jewish colloquial expression : Gentile men or women.] They have no thought of building up a Jewish State in Palestine, so that they might perhaps inhabit it, but they only want a central organization of their inter-national world cheating”

    “Jews were a separate people who belong somewhere else”

    You identify as an anti-Zionist Jew, but a Jew nonetheless, thereby distinguishing yourself from others. You an anti-semite now too? Neither antisemites nor Zionists needed to portray Jews as a separate people; Jews as distinct, by faith or ethnicity, is not a recent phenomenon.

    Anti-Zionist arguments are very legitimate, but this post is vile and you should be embarassed to attach your name to it.


  3. Wow! The level of stupidity in this “article” is breathtaking!

    It is a classic lesson on how to take a combination of statements taken out of context, and completely fabricated claims, in order to try to prove something that has not the slightest resemblance to the truth.

    Zionism is, quite simply, the desire of the Jewish people, as a NATION, to be able to live under our own rule, in our own homeland, and not be ruled over by foreign conquerors and colonizers, like the British or the Arabs (BOTH of who colonized our land, as did the Romans before them).

    That does NOT mean that all Jews have to live in Israel, any more than all Chinese have to live in China. So this nonsense that wanting our own land back, under our own control, is somehow equivalent to calling for a removal of Jews from other lands is arrant nonsense!

    But it sure is nice to know that there is one place Jews can always go, and be safe from Antisemitic laws and practices.


    • Perhaps you will understand from my next post why I disagree with your first two pars. As for your 3rd par: the “Jewish people” cannot be considered a NATION in the modern sense of this word: Jews are citizens of many nations. The Israeli Jews constitute a nation, with their own language, economy, institutions, etc. True, Arabs colonized the land in about 700 CE, as many others had before them, but the fact that Jews had lived there many centuries earlier, & some still remained, could not make it “our land” in the 19th & 20th centuries: it was indeed still Eretz Yisrael, but not in the sense of legitimate ownership. Zionist (mostly European) Jews colonized (mostly Arab-inhabited) Palestine from the late 19th century onwards. & Zionism continues to call on Jews everywhere to “ascend” to Israel.
      Your final par, tho, is a beauty. Yes, it sure would be nice to know there is one place Jews can always go to escape anti-Semitism – but you’re blithely ignoring, as so many Zionists do, that this place is being maintained through the cruel & brutal dispossession & occupation of millions of human beings whose only sin is that they were not born Jews, &, in the process, only increasing the spread of anti-Semitism throughout the world.
