Anti-Jewish Hate Campaign in Israel
The caricature is from today's HaAretz, the most intelligent and well written paper in Israel (my wife is suscribed). This fishwrap is the driving force of the anti-Jewish campaign flooding Israel. The caricature shows a group of bearded religious Jews dancing with 100 dollar bills falling around from their pockets. Der Sturmer published this kind of caricatures.
The religious leaders have long said that HaAretz is antisemite and although it seems absurd that a paper founded by one of the leaders of German Jewry and written in (good) Hebrew could be qualified as anitsemite, I cannot but agree and say that HaAretz is antisemite. HaAretz and the people it represents, the leftist intellectuals, hate Jews and Judaism. Hate as in raging, furious, irrational, gut-level, blind hate.
Why should this thing be? One thng HaAretz maintains is that the religious are a burden to the State of Israel, that instead of working in the high tech sector they study ancient theological treatises full of superstition. All over the world students, specially university level divinity students, are exempt from military service and are subsidized. Religious students in Israel are NOT subsidized while (say) postgraduate studies in the Snake-cult religion of the Mayas ARE SUBSIDIZED.
HaAretz demands to stop social security payments to religious families. Apart from the sheer evility turning thousands of decent Jews into street beggars, about 60% of the religious population is under the age of 18, and in Israel's and all Western countries laws, minors are under State protection. If the parents cannot feed the children, the State takes them into institutions and feeds them and educates them till age 18. Under the Mapai regime, till the seventies, the State of Israel regularly abducted the children of large religious families and sent them to educate in remote left-wing kibutzim and "agricultural internates" so the parents could not visit them. That era has passed but HaAretz thinks that religious education is wrong and hurts the children making parasytes and bad persons from them. To HaAretz and the Labour Party chldren should be taken away from the bad influence of the ignorant parents as it was done in the not so far past. Of course caring for and educating these children within their own families costs much less than in public institutes, but they are ready to sacrifice us for the good of society and the future.
Why the religious Jews in Israel are hated to this irrational extreme and why intelligent people are demanding violent measures to punish them and their children, even at the cost of large public expenditure and risk to social stability? Why HaAretz goes to the extreme of publishing Der Sturmer caricatures against Jews?
In my opinion, the explicative power of Darwin's theory of evolution holds here. High IQ people are not having children in Israel (nor in other places). I see every day the bitterness of my friends and collegues for their "successful" but unmarried and sterile sons and daugthers, with their prestigious Ph.D. diplomas from Stanford and well paying jobs in Intel and Microsoft. I see the yellow envy in their faces when a 75 years old fellow announces in triumph that at long last he has turned grandfather.
A dying people must hate those reproducing. I can understand the theory that the genocyde that the Germans planned and executed on East European Jews was motivated - at some deep level - by the fear of being out-reproduced by them (Germans, then as today, was an aging population, while Eastern traditional masses were young and colonizing). Non-reproducing German Jews, on the other hand, were allowed to emigrate and escape the Nazi furor.
In conclusion, there is something in it when religious Jews in Israel say that they are being harassed like in an antisemite country. I shall vote for Netaniyahu.
