One asks oneself why these bothers and sisters are going to the extreme of causing big Public Relations damages to Israel. Dont they know that the murderous image of Israel reflects on American Jews themselves, on their own image within the American society and in the whole world? Dont they understand that in the mind of the world there is no difference between Israel and the Jews in the Diaspora?
Today I woke up at 3.30 AM to finish an urgent presentation that I was supposed to submit at 900 AM (I was ready, but the other party didnt show up). Frantz Fanon and his book Los Condenados de la Tierra (The Wretched of the Earth) came to my mind. He was a Black Psychiatrist from Martinique, who fought against the Nazis in France and ended by joining the Algerian Revolution, He worte on the psychopatology of the colonized. The Colonized lives in a permanent mental state of oppression, hating himself, hating the color of his skin, hating his inability to free himself of his hate. The colonized person's mind is a permanent trauma and wound, he cannot think straigth and act forcefully in his own interest. He is chained in a sick dependent relationship to the Colonizer.
Aujourd’hui, nous sommes enchaînés, humiliés, malades de peur: au plus bas.Jewish Communists in Argentina half a century ago used to apply the colonized - colonizer relationship to their own position in the Diaspora. We Jews were hypnotized by Christian hate, and were acting like colonized, demeaning ourselves, playing for the colonizer's eyes, always trying to show that we personally were not like the colonized, our noses were not hooked, always trying to put a frontier between us and the hated colonized, always doing bizarre things like harming ourselves in an effort to show the colonizer that we hated ourselves so much that we should not be considered equal to the colonized. We were number one example of a colonized, oppressed people.
These American Jews, who are not marginal elements but the elite of American Jewry, come to show the world that they hate Israel so they were NOT Israel, that the world may hate Israel but it should make a distinction and love them. Their mentality is typically a colonized mentality, as described by Dr Frantz Fanon.
The mental disease of the colonized cannot be solved but through liberation. Zionism is the liberation movement of the Jewish people. I see my sick, tortured, oppressed brothers and sisters coming all the way from America to ship cement to the Palestinian jihadists in Gaza and I have a message for them: Move Up (תעלה) to Israel and become free. Let Gazans worry for themselves, you free yourself.
