ISNA features Jewish Week article No Tolerance For Anti-Zionist In
Madrid on its website.
The text reports:
Dr. Sayyid Syeed, national director of the Islamic Society of North
America, said he was upset by the planned participation in the
conference, which opened this week, of Rabbi Yisrael Dovid Weiss, a
representative of Neturei Karta from upstate Monsey. Rabbi Weiss was
to be the only Jewish leader to address the gathering sponsored by
the Saudi-affiliated Muslim World League.
Syeed said he immediately called Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi ambassador to
the U.S., to complain about the Neturei Karta invitation. "I told the
ambassador that we strongly protested the invitation, which was not
only an affront to our friends in the Jewish community, but to us as
well." Syeed's organization, considered one of the most influential
Muslim groups in North America, has instituted joint programming in
the past several years with Jewish groups like the Union for Reform
Judaism and Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.
Jewish leaders invited to the conference had also threatened to
boycott it if Weiss who gained notoriety by speaking at a Holocaust
denial conference in Tehran two years ago were invited to speak in
Madrid. Organizers of this week's conference finally announced that
Rabbi Weiss would not be among the speakers, and had decided not to
attend the conference. He was replaced as principal Jewish speaker by
Rabbi Arthur Schneier, spiritual leader of Park East Synagogue in
Manhattan and founder of the interfaith Appeal of Conscience
No group makes a bigger distinction between Israel and Judaism than
Neturei Karta. By insulting the most consistently anti-Zionist Jewish
group and its representative Rabbi Weiss, who is a genuine friend of
the American Muslim community as well as one of the few Jewish
leaders willing to confront issues of the Holocaust honestly, Dr.
showed complete Zionist mental colonization, groveled to extremist
Jewish Zionist leaders, and accepted an effective equation of Judaism
and Israel in a way that could only insult decent honest Jews that
reject Zionism and demand the abolition of the Zionist state.
The purpose of Dr. Syeed's self-abasement was unclear. Perhaps he
sacrificed Palestinians on the altar of improved Muslim-Jewish
interfaith relations because he believes that Jewish Zionists will
reciprocate if a Muslim leader shows sympathy for Jewish Zionist
positions. [The only reason a Jewish organization gets involved in a
church or an Islamic organization is to get them to accept "Israel's
right to exist" and to abandon the Palestinian friendship. -WVNS]
Not only does the outpouring of support from the mainstream organized
Jewish community for the current murderous Zionist attack on Gaza as
Jewish Islamophobes ratchet up their effort at anti-Muslim incitement
demonstrate how wrong such an idea is, but choosing to massacre
Palestinian innocents on Christmas weekend demonstrates how much
contempt Jewish Zionists have for Christian Americans on whom the
State of Israel depends.
Since 9/11 the organized Islamic community has tended toward
defensiveness and apologia when preemptive attacks on Jewish Zionist
groups and outreach to Christians would be more appropriate. Islamic
organizations have generally evinced a strong reluctance to connect
the dots to demonstrate the threat that Jewish Zionists and the State
of Israel represent to the USA and to the world.
Please contrast the CAIR discussion of Islamophobia
[http://www.cair.com/Issues/Islamophobia/Islamophobia.aspx%5d with mine
puts Islamophobia within a broader synchronic and diachronic context.
Not only did my article receive extraordinary web-traction and
exacerbate internal Jewish conflict, but it also connected to several
major stories covered in the broadcast media.
I made the extremely important point that the American Jewish
Committee by its own admission in Commentary, which was an
AJCommittee publication at the time, was attacking progressive Jews
and engaging in Islamophobia in order to undermine American democracy.
I did not discuss terrorism at all because it was completely
unnecessary to address the "dragon story" in this context. ["Dragon
story" is marketing terminology for the customer's main reason to
reject a product. If it must be brought up, it is summarized and
dismissed in the first 2 minutes of a presentation.]
Note that ADL founded in 1913 never addressed the role that Russian
Jews played as the quintessential Bolshevik-Soviet class in the 10s,
20s, 30s and 40s because any such discussion would have tended to
Overall Islamic groups might get more traction with the American
public by focusing on three basic bread and butter issues:
unequal enforcement of US Law for Jews and non-Jews (see One Law for
All Americans -- it has direct implications for the HLF, el-Arian,
and Fort Dix Five cases),
criminal conspiracy against rights by the David Project, StandWithUs,
Daniel Pipes, and David Horowitz, (see Conspiracy Against Rights in
the economy (see Every Israel Advocate a Madoff and Gladwell Supports
Hegemonic Zionist Discourse).
Thanks to the Madoff fraud, Muslims can open up a discussion of
Jewish financial fraud (both historical and current) as well as of
the damage that the US-Israel alliance has done to the US economy,
the world economy, and the pocketbooks of the vast majority of
Such a discussion might skirt some anti-Semitic stereotypes, but
stereotypes exist because they have some truth. Norman Finkelstein
has provided a useful passage dealing with that issue as I describe
in Finkelstein: Antisemitic Stereotypes, Jewish Behavior.
In general, Muslims need to learn more about Jewish history, and I
have created this EAAZI blog specifically to provide Jews and non-
Jews with an honest introduction to Jewish studies without the need
to learn lots of obscure languages.
Students of the history of Eastern European Jews fairly quickly
that E. Europe is the mother of extremist völkisch racism and ethnic
that Ashkenazim were probably one of the most racist E. European
ethnic groups, and
that Zionist indoctrination has only exacerbated traditional Jewish
For this reason Muslim groups must demand the removal of Jewish
racists like Abigail Thernstrom from the US Commission on Civil
Rights and their replacement with activists genuinely committed to
civil rights. (Recommending a few Muslims of various ethnicities to
the USCCR would be a good idea.)
Besides perverting civil (and human) rights advocacy, the organized
Jewish community and Zionists use the Holocaust
as a club to beat down American Muslims, American Arabs and anyone
sympathizing with Palestinians,
as a means to thwart the proper identification of Zionism as ethnic
Ashkenazi Nazism, and
as a mechanism to forestall any open discussion of Jewish extremism,
fanaticism, racism, or criminality.
Because the US Holocaust Memorial Museum has made Darfur its latest
cause, Muslim organizations should make a combined effort to put at
least one American Muslim on the USHMM council. At the very least, a
Muslim member could serve as an obstacle to the use of the USHMM for
Zionist propaganda and might even be instrumental in transforming the
museum into an honest organization that presented the narrative of
the Holocaust properly contextualized within the history of Jewish
violence, terrorism, mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide
directed against non-Jews.
Because Muslim children like most American children are subjected to
Holocaust indoctrination in grammar school through college, some
Muslim organization should consider producing a Muslim guide to the
Holocaust while all Muslim groups should insist on balancing
Holocaust programs with Nakba education. (See Anti-Semitosis
Infection Spreads to UK.)
Such a document would only require about 20-40 pages. It would
probably take about three months to write and then another three
months to verify and to make distributable.
If done properly, the guide would probably obtain a lot of media
coverage as well as traction with American non-Jews and should serve
as an essential tool for Muslims wishing to take part in interfaith
activities in the university environment and in the larger society.
It would be particularly effective to coordinate the release of such
a text with inauguration of an externship program to monitor the
Islamophobic activities of Israel advocates and the organized Jewish
community on campus. Such a Muslim program could be modeled on the
Emerson Fellowship of StandWithUs. In coordination with CAIR, MAS,
and college anti-racist groups, the externs could take the lead
in thwarting Jewish Zionist extremism and
in creating a pro-Muslim consciousness among Muslim and non-Muslim
None of the suggestions above are particularly costly, and the
strategy that they comprise would easily couple with an extensive
fund-raising campaign that would precede and accompany the program to
neutralize the plethora of Islamophobic and Jewish Zionist groups and
individuals, who are simply not used to dealing with an organized
opposition with a long-term strategy.
If Muslims design and execute the anti-Zionist anti-Islamophobe
program properly, the vast majority of Americans will eventually
realize that Zionists are not only the enemies of Palestinians and
Muslims but also of Americans and the entire human race. Otherwise,
the Zionists will as the David Project mission statement says
complete the Islamic emasculation process started by Dr. Syeed and
his ilk by completely "diminishing the impact of Israel's detractors,
increasing the support of Israel on campus" and succeed in the
ongoing effort to "strengthen the pro-Israel and pro-Jewish forces
within the churches."
In the America that Dr. Syeed and Israel advocates are working to
create, ISNA, which at one time served as a clear moral voice for
American Muslims and intended to participate fully as an equal in the
American political system so that it could aid Palestinians, seems to
have been neutralized as a critic or detractor of Israel as a result
of Jewish interfaith smarm.
