      (A talk given at "The Dialogue of Civilizations: the Contradictions
      of the Globalization" International Conference on May 23, 2003, in
      Kyiv, Ukraine. At the conference, Shamir was elected a member of the

      Civilisation X

      By Israel Shamir

      The organisers of the conference could not find a better place to
      discuss its topic, for Ukraine is the borderlands between
      Civilizations; the ground where these ultimate personae of human
      history check their valour and vitality by prayer and sword. Founded
      by Vikings, peopled by Slavs, baptised by Byzantines, decorated by
      poplar and scented by lilac, Kyiv is the tolerant city of Igor's Lay,
      the old epic poem of a battle waging between the Orthodox Christian
      Slavs and the Turkic horsemen. Its hero Prince Igor, a Roland of
      Eastern Europe, marries a daughter of a Turkic chieftain, for there
      is no reason for deadly enmity between cultures. Rudyard Kipling
      expressed it in the last less frequently quoted line: there is no East
      neither West when Men meet (please check quote!).

      Though your thyme-perfumed steppes interspaced with chestnut groves
      served as the preferred battlefield of Germans, Turks and Slavs,
      paradoxically, the border skirmishes of Janissaries, Cossacks and
      Hussars, the let-go of excessive masculine energy, prove the
      civilizations have no reason for conflict. Orthodox Christians, Roman
      Catholics and Muslims have their own habitat and they do not stray
      out of it, while the warriors deeply respect their adversaries and
      display their chivalry between the wars.

      It is a trite observation, and that is why the concept of Clash of
      Civilisations was shunned in political discourse since the Crusades.
      The confrontations were perceived as ideological ones, be it the Cold
      War of Communism and Capitalism, or colonial wars of Imperialism and
      Liberation. American political scientists revived the Neo-Darwinist
      and racist concept of Clash of Civilisations for practical reasons:
      to explain and encourage the war of America against the World. Its
      enemies are presented in 'civilisational' terms: 'Old' (read:
      independent) Europe, Dar al-Islam, China. If these are the enemies,
      who are the friends? What is 'our' civilisation of Huntington and
      Strauss, Perle and Wurmser, Feith and Rice? Whatever it is, this
      Civilisation X is equally rejected by people of Eastern and Western
      Europe, French and Ukrainian, Germans and Greeks, Chinese and Zulu.

      Let us consider the qualities of this Civilisation X:

      - It is exterritorial, knows no borders and able to attack and devour
      from Iraq to China, from Russia to Nicaragua. It has no natural
      habitat and able of endless expansion. Wherever there is a man to
      enslave, a house to bomb, a tree to fell, it is ready to come.

      - Its main occupation is usury. They provide loans
      to states, ensnare them with impossible conditions and ruin them.

      - It considers human solidarity and brotherhood -

      - It rejects Spirit and considers it 'fanaticism and fundamentalism'.

      - It equally abhors Apostolic Christianity and Islam; but it loves to
      set the Christians upon the Muslims, and vice versa.

      - Its devotion is given to the Jewish State. Not only the JINSA Cabal
      is ethnically faithful to Israel; the US National Security Adviser
      Condoleezza Rice said that the security of Israel is the key to
      security of the world. Rice added that she feels a deep affinity with

      - It is heavily engaged in drugs. Wherever they win, heroin has its
      field day. London's The Independent newspaper, reported from Baghdad:
      The city, which had never seen heroin, is now flooded with narcotics.
      It is not unusual that where the Americans go, the narcotics
      flourish. Taliban had successfully eliminated the drugs from
      Afghanistan but since the US forces took over the control,
      Afghanistan has become the largest producer of heroin. Some reports
      suggest that the drug and arms trafficking is patronized by the CIA
      to finance its covert operations worldwide.

      - It exalts vengeance. The war against Afghanistan was promoted
      as 'vengeance for 9/11'.

      - It has soul of dastardly knave, in its narrow meaning of 'opposite
      to noble'. They did not dare to attack Iraq until it was fully
      disarmed by the UN.

      - It produces no art. In vain archaeologists of Fourth Millennium
      will search for their Venus. The rusty American Venus a.k.a opus 5327
      exhibited in the Guggenheim is identical to any heap of scrap metal.
      There are no glorious temples, no exciting architecture, absolutely
      nothing to miss if the gods would pour sulphur and brimstone on its

      - It is obsessed with paranoid fear. It is not enough that America
      spends on weapons ten times more money than the rest of the world.
      They want to disarm everybody. The war in Iraq was caused by
      desire to remove its weapons. Now they want to disarm Iran, Syria,
      Korea, and Ukraine and Russia just wait for its turn.

      - Fear of weapons is not aimed exclusively outside: the proponents of
      Civilisation X try their best to disarm the American people as well.
      For this reason they committed the mass murder at Waco and implicated
      militias in Oklahoma bombing.

      - It despises labour and labourers. American cinema, the only
      existing quasi-art output of Civilisation X, depicts millionaires and
      whores, gamblers and brokers, bums and gangsters, but its last worker
      was depicted in the pre-war Grapes of Wrath.

      - It loves the rich. They believe the rich are virtuous, for they are
      blessed with wealth, while the poor are evil and damned just because
      they are poor.

      The psychological portrait should be recognisable for the Ukrainians.
      Yes, the Civilisation X presently at war with the rest of the world,
      is this eminently familiar and contemptible figure, a medieval
      Ukrainian Jew, a usurer, tax collector and alcohol pusher magnified
      by a factor of million. Its size impeded our recognition, for it is
      not easy to recognise an elephant-size louse.

      Centuries ago, this figure ruled your steppes. After expulsion from
      France and Spain, the immigrant Jews settled in the Ukraine, suborned
      the timid native Jews and in short time strategically placed
      themselves between Polish landlords and Ukrainian peasants. They had
      lent money to landlords and peasants, pushed alcohol, managed the
      feudal estates, and eventually became the ultimate source of power.
      The Jews fought the Church, for the Church objected to their liberal
      trade in alcohol and usury. Until nowadays, the Jewish word kabala
      (receipt) is used in the Ukrainian language for 'debt enslavement'.[1]

      The Civilisation X pushes heroin instead of vodka, loans out billions
      instead of two roubles, sucks out the wealth of nations instead of
      meagre livelihood of a peasant, fears nuclear weapons rather than
      moujik's axe, but it is the same complex of ideas and methods. In
      short, Civilisation X is a dangerous and aggressive mutation of
      Jewish spirit grafted on the Anglo-American basis. Huntington was
      right - up to a point. The Conflict of Civilisations is unavoidable,
      but it is not a conflict of Christendom and Islam, but the conflict
      of Christians and Muslims versus Neo-Jews.


      What a strange and dreadful thought, one would say. However, this
      thought is shared by many Jews, for instance, by a prominent Jewish
      thinker, ex-Rabbi of Oxford, author of a few books, a TV personality,
      Rabbi Shmuel Boteach, incidentally, a leader of Khabbad, the most
      racist and xenophobic Jewish movement. He notices and blesses
      similarity, almost identity of the traditional Jewish attitude and
      the ruling US paradigm. I do agree with him in his diagnosis, though
      our conclusions are diametrically opposed. Rabbi Boteach proclaims in
      The Jerusalem Post[2]: "America and the Jews are teaming up take over
      the world. But it is a conquest of ideas rather than armies, and you
      can be sure that when they give it back, it will be in much better
      shape than when they took it."

      It is a conquest of ideas, but they are backed up by Tomahawks. These
      ideas will improve the world, like the character of the Jewish
      joke 'translated and improved' Shakespeare. As for 'give it back',
      tell it to Palestinians.

      The ideas are the worst part of Jewish heritage, for these ideas were
      already tried in the Ukraine and now they are tried in Palestine.
      These ideas force many young Palestinians ('suicide bombers') to
      commit suicide rather than to live under the unbearable Jewish rule.
      These old Jewish ideas were modernized by Leo Strauss, the brain
      behind the JINSA cabal. Pfaff[3] sums them up in a one-liner 'The
      ostensibly hidden truth is that expediency works; there is no certain
      God to punish wrongdoing', or in even shorter form, their power is
      based on the secret knowledge that there is no God[4].

      It is not a new observation. The Prophets complained about the Jews
      who act as if there is no God to punish wrongdoing or apportion
      grace. Since God through Christ has opened his Covenant to the
      Gentiles, those from the Jews who do not consider themselves to be in
      one beloved Israel of God with righteous Christians from all other
      nations do not belong to Israel either and do not participate in the
      Covenant of God[5]. In plain words, by rejecting Gentiles, the Jews
      rebelled against God.

      Now these rebels command the nuclear arsenal of the US. Pfaff names
      leading disciples of Strauss: Deputy Defense Secretary Paul
      Wolfowitz; Abram Shulsky of the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans,
      Richard Perle of the Pentagon advisory board, Elliott Abrams of the
      National Security Council. These men have now enough bombs to erase
      the mankind, or, to achieve the ultimate goal of Strauss, ensuring
      Jewish group dominance in the modern world[6]. This frightening
      thought provides also a glimpse of hope, for 95% of American people
      do not belong to the Neo-Jewish community. Instead of fighting
      Muslims and supporting the Neo-Jews in the style they are accustomed
      to, the Americans can borrow a leaf from the Ukrainian book.

      For the Jewish dominance in Ukraine was undone in 1648, when the
      Christian Ukrainians and the Muslim Tartars led by a Polish noble
      Bohdan Chmielnicki and supported by Russian troops united in a
      ferocious Intifada and freed the Ukraine. (For centuries, the
      Ukrainians were libelled as mass murderers of the innocent Jews,
      until the modern British Jewish researcher Jonathan Israel[7] proved
      there was no massacre; though Jews suffered as much as everybody else
      in the ensuing civil war.)

      The defeat of the Jewish ideas in 1648 was good for everybody, and
      good for Jews, as well. Jews lost their arrogance and gained some
      respect to their neighbours. They lost their exalted position and
      became better human beings. Thousands of Jews, followers of Jacob
      Frank, were received in the Church and became ordinary Ukrainians or
      Poles. Others followed Besht into new Hassidic movement which
      internalised many Christian concepts.

      Yesterday I visited Uman, a charming old town with its famous 18th
      century landscaped park of Count Potocki, one of the world wonders,
      where young Ukrainian belles in dangerously brief miniskirts stroll
      under the white pyramidal candles of chestnut blossom. There I
      attended the tomb of Rabbi Nachman, for this Jewish philosopher-saint
      and contemporary of Napoleon was venerated by my ancestors, and he is
      still revered by thousands of Jews everywhere. He was much influenced
      by the Ukrainian folk ways and dreamed to unite his people with the
      Ukrainians in one Church. He felt affinity to the soul of Jesus and
      repeated His words 'I came to fulfil the Law' while ostensibly
      transgressing it. He made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land but chose
      to return to his native Ukraine. His mystic teaching is the best
      proof of blessed influence the Ukrainian Orthodox had on the
      rebellious Jewish soul. Thus the old withered oak of Jewish spirit
      blossomed again in the Ukraine after the victorious Intifada.

      Likewise, the strategic mega-usurer from New York and his partner the
      butcher from Tel Aviv will be defeated in the new world-wide
      Intifada, and that will be the end of the Clash of Civilisations.
