My study of Jewishness suggests that there is no collective remedy for the Jewish question. If you care enough; break out, run for your life. Search for the universal, the ordinary, the bread, the butter and brotherhood.
Neocons are people who wage global wars against Semites in the name of Coca Cola...
Labour councillor Adam Langleben, who recently doctored Laura Stuart’s tweets in a clear attempt to defame her as an ‘antisemite’, worked as Chief of Staff to Lord Greville Janner. For those with short memory, Lord Janner was accused of some extensive sex predatory behaviour. He was allegedly molesting British children in his marital bed at the time he was the head of the Jewish community*.
Why has I’m Not Racist attracted millions of viewers? Because unlike Western academia, media, politicians and progressives who try to suppress the way people think and express themselves, the artist here attempts to reshape the universe, offering a prospect of unity.
This is a segment taken from the genius Israeli TV's satire The Jews are Coming. As you can see, the Israelis are having a lot of fun with the holocaust. They are pretty creative and often humorous when it comes to Jewish history and suffering. But what about the rest of humanity, can others also apply some sarcasm to Jewish past?
Please see yourself invited to review the intimate correspondence between the ultra Zionist Campaign Against Antisemitism and our British police forces.
Introduction by GA: In the following commentary, Laura Stuart points out the duplicitous nature of the arguments that were levelled against her. Stuart shows that Labour councillor Adam Langleben doctored her tweets in order to present a misleading message of anti Jewish bigotry. In Stuart’s tweet, she referred to Israeli film maker Yoav Shamir’s grandmother who was caught on camera being highly critical of her own people’s affinity to money; in Langleben’s ‘evidence’ of Stuart’s ‘antisemitsm’ the reference to Shamir’s film was left out. If Jewish Labour councillor Langleben thinks that justice is on his side, why does he feel the need to doctor evidence? Is deception in the attempt to defame consistent with Labour Party’s values?
War in Palestine is peace of mind in Washington. This seems to fit the Trump doctrine. Israeli commentators believe that Arab and Muslim leaders won’t side with Palestine. The risk is that the Arab and Muslim masses react very differently. And the crucial question that Americans must ask themselves tomorrow morning is how Trump’s ‘War is Peace‘ makes ‘America Great again?’ It doesn’t. This is simply a survival tactic on Trump’s part. It benefits Trump alone.

Being In Time: A Post-Political Manifesto' is Gilad Atzmon's latest pithy book - its title a nod to Heidegger, the John Coltrane of the philosophy world. It broadens the arguments of his previous 'The Wandering Who? A Study of Jewish Identity Politics' (which has sold internationally by the bucket load).

Please let your Berlin friends know about our residency and the book launch
