Free Speech only for Zionists

January 13, 2015

The murderous attack on Charlie Hebdo should never be condoned. However Charlie Hebdo is not a very nice magazine. It has clearly become pro Zionist, and its scurrilous attack on the prophet was quite pointlessly offensive, see, and all it achieved was to stir up hatred.

The BBC journalist Tim Wilcox was driven to point out that Israelis had done bad things too, see He apologised, but there is now apparently a campaign to get him sacked. Reasonable criticism of Israeli actions is apparently not permitted; free speech does not cover that.

There are plenty of Jews who are prepared to criticise Israeli actions where justified. Zionists however argue that Jews wherever they live owe total and unquestioning allegiance to the Zionist cause. The Zionist lobby is immensely powerful. I do not fully understand the reasons for this, but I suppose they include Western guilt over the holocaust and Jewish influence in banking and finance, which in turn was fostered by the prohibition in medieval Europe over Jews owning land. The West has further weakened its moral position by its duplicitous behaviour in the Middle East, just one example of which was the failure of the British to contradict T E Lawrence’s promise to the Arabs he was leading whilst supporting the Balfour declaration.

Zionist claims rely on very dubious assumptions, namely that all Jews have semitic racial origin and are descended from  one of the 12 tribes of Israel, and that all semites are Jews although originally the term ‘semite’ included Arabs. In practice it would seem that anyone who adopts the Judaism is regarded as a Jew. In his book, ‘The Thirteenth Tribe’, published in 1976, Arthur Koestler claimed that many modern Jews are in fact Khazars originating from Turkey and North of the Black Sea, and that the Khazar Empire adopted Judaism in 740 AD. Koestler took pride in his Khazar ancestry. In 1983 Koestler and his wife were found dead – suicide? See

DNA studies have since shown that the majority of Jews have a common racial origin, but that origin is disputed. The Israeli geneticist Eran Elhaik concludes that most Jews are Khazars, see: Eran Elhaik, ‘The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses’,McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA, 21208

If this conclusion is correct it somewhat weakens Zionist claims to the land of Israel, which is why it is hotly disputed by Zionists.
