In a desperate attempt to smear Lauren Booth, Independent newspaper writer Julie Burchill, a devout Zionist, proves how deceiving British multiculturalism is.
What is more, the Zionification of the United Kingdom has left the country in a disastrous ethical limbo.
“Last year I took the first steps towards converting to Judaism; also last year, I abandoned my attempt,” says Burchill.
But I guess that Burchill didn’t really have to convert – she is obviously far more Jewish than anyone I can think of. Burchill can teach Rabbi Ovadia Yosef what self-love is all about. She can teach Paul Wolfowitz, David Aaronovitch and David Miliband what moral-interventionism stands for. She can give Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman a crash course in hasbara (Israeli propaganda). Burchill can lecture Zionist slander operators on how to spread venom. But most significantly, she displays an astonishing command of Jewish humour. Burchill is indeed very funny.
Jewish humour is a pretty simple concept: it is based on self-mockery mixed with the absurd. Thus, we have Woody Allen presenting himself as an alpha male Schwarzenegger-type, and through self-deprecation, Larry David would appear to challenge our tolerance of the ultimate form of Jewish rudeness. And then we have Julie Burchill presenting herself as a veteran sex bomb – funny indeed.
Jewish humour, though, is, in practice, a camouflage: through comedy, funny Jews manage to live in peace with their symptoms. But sometimes even the best of Jewish comedians fail to provide the goods, as Woody Allen and Larry David may have learned.
“It is pretty astonishing to witness the amount of poison that pours out of Burchill against Booth, a fellow journalist who recently converted into Islam. It is even more astonishing to find such a level of Islamophobia and personal attacks on the pages of a respected British newspaper.”
It is pretty astonishing to witness the amount of poison that pours out of Burchill against Booth, a fellow journalist who recently converted into Islam. It is even more astonishing to find such a level of Islamophobia and personal attacks on the pages of a respected British newspaper. In the past, I certainly saw this kind of vile personal slander on Jews-only blogs. But I have never seen anything similar in a newspaper, let alone a British newspaper. I guess that the Zionification of Britain is beginning to take a heavy toll on our cultural and public life.
Would Booth have been faced with such a slanderous campaign if she had converted to Judaism? I don’t think so. Would anyone in the British media dare to remind us, for instance, that it is actually Judaism that calls on its followers to “pour their wrath on the goyim [gentiles]?” No one would remind us that the crimes that are committed on a daily basis by the Jewish state are actually implied by a certain interpretation of the Old Testament, namely the Zionist interpretation. British multiculturalism is indeed a funny concept. It basically means tolerance towards everyone – except Muslims!
I would prefer to spare you from reading Burchill’s personal attack on Booth (much of which reminds me of an old Jewish mother’s Passover dinner tantrum) but, I will review some of her arguments, because it is apparent that the logic she employs is symptomatic of both neo-conservatives and Zionists in Britain and America.
“There is one religion which proscribes its followers under threat of death from rejecting it, and that is Islam,” says Burchill. Yet if there was any truth in such a statement, our streets would be soaking with the blood of ex-Muslims. This is obviously not the case.
While we are on the subject of proscription, restriction, revenge and forgiveness in religious precept and religious tradition, I am sure that Burchill learned in school about Jesus: although the man didn’t actually reject Judaism, he did suggest to his fellow Jews to love their neighbours. That was enough to nail him to the cross. I guess that Burchill doesn’t know that the word Yeshu – Jesus in Hebrew – is the abbreviation for the Hebrew phrase "May his name and memory be blotted out." Seemingly, Rabbinical Jews are yet to forgive Jesus.
But maybe we should set Jesus’s crucifixion aside. Many contemporary Jews rightly argue that they have nothing to do with this crime. Yet, I do wonder whether Burchill has heard of the former Israeli prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin, and the Talmudic Rabbinical ruling that led to his assassination. Igal Amir, the young student who took Rabin’s life, had come to believe that Rabin was a din rodef, meaning Talmudically a “pursuer” who endangered Jewish lives. Under din rodef, Amir would be justified in “removing” Rabin from being a threat to Jews.
““It is pretty fascinating that 'nearly-converted' Burchill would denounce the Iranian regime as murderous while it is evident that Britain was taken to the Iraq war by a government that was funded by the Zionist lobby, led by no other than fundraiser Lord ‘Cashpoint’ Levy.”
As far as Rabbinical Judaism is concerned, one doesn’t even have to reject Judaism in order to be murdered. It is enough that a rabbi or a great cohen tags a Jew as a din rodef in order for another Jew to complete the job.
But let us return to Burchill’s ad hominem argument against Lauren Booth – next, she turns her attention to Booth’s work for Press TV.
“It's hard to know where to start when describing the sheer ickiness of Booth,” says Burchill condescendingly. “That she works as a paid stooge for the murderous Iranian regime's television channel has to come pretty near the top.”
As tragic as it may be, it is actually Britain and the British (rather than Iran and Iranians) who are directly complicit in a colossal criminal war that has so far led to 1,421,933 fatalities in Iraq alone. It is pretty fascinating that “nearly-converted” Burchill would denounce the Iranian regime as murderous while it is evident that Britain was taken to the Iraq war by a government that was funded by the Zionist lobby, led by no other than fundraiser Lord “Cashpoint” Levy.
In fact, more than ever, we need Press TV in the UK, for the Iranian TV channel is the only broadcaster in Britain to deliver full coverage of Israel’s colossal crimes. In case Burchill has managed to forget, at the eve of Operation Cast Lead, when the BBC was quick to follow Israeli military “instructions” and evacuated its reporters from Gaza, it was Press TV that stayed behind and delivered live footage of the Israeli massacre. It was Press TV, rather than BBC, Sky or ITN, that broadcast in real time a UN Relief and Works Agency shelter being shelled with white phosphorous.
We need Press TV, and we need many more Lauren Booths to practise real journalism instead of Zionized comedy. We need Press TV and Lauren Booth exactly because the British press and people like Julie Burchill have so evidently failed.
Burchill is not just a devout Zionist and a neocon, she is also a sincere feminist. She doesn’t like Islam, and she doesn’t hide it either. She doesn’t approve of regimes that “uphold the punishment of death by stoning for adulteresses”. For those who fail to remember, it was also so-called “feminists” who were the first to campaign against the Taliban in the mid 1990s, just to prepare the ground for the American invasion. I am almost taken in by Burchill’s caring for Muslim women; yet, I wonder how come the “women’s rights campaigner” fails to show the same care for Palestinian women who are often enough bleeding to death at Israeli roadblocks.
When it seems as if Burchill was running out of neocon slogans, she then takes off the gloves and pulls the chicken out of the boiling soup: Booth, according to Burchill, is so “jaded that she can only get a kick from self-denial”. But may I point out to Burchill here that conversion is actually the exact opposite of “self-denial”. It is actually all about the “self” being “spiritually awakened” out of a state of denial, an experience that may be foreign to the “nearly-converted” Burchill.
“I am almost taken in by Burchill’s caring for Muslim women; yet, I wonder how come the 'women’s rights campaigner' fails to show the same care for Palestinian women who are often enough bleeding to death at Israeli roadblocks.”
However, Burchill’s feeble accusation of “self-denial” does ring a bell here; it does sound familiar. It is, after all, common among Jews and within the Zionist fold to label their dissident voices as being “self-haters”.
As I mentioned earlier on, Burchill didn’t have to convert: the Jewish philosophy and manners are apparently deeply ingrained within her soul. They spill out in each of her sentences – and it is far from being a pretty sight.
But I guess that at a certain stage Burchill just couldn’t hold it together anymore. She wanted Lauren Booth to simply shut up. She suggested that Booth treats herself “to a full-face and – most essentially – mouth-covering burka”. All of a sudden, Burchill, the liberal impostor, the one who just a few lines before was rallying for freedom of Muslims, gays and women, has revealed her true face: in Burchill’s world, women and homosexuals should be free – but Muslim converts had better shut up.
Can anyone explain this discrepancy? It is no wonder that neo-conservatism and moral interventionism are such a disaster. There is not a single shred of truth, coherence or consistency in them. They are, in fact, simply a pretext for Zionist expansionism.
This is, unfortunately, the true meaning of the current Western brutality. It obviously didn’t take me by complete surprise, then, when I found out that Julie Burchill was also a supporter of the war in Iraq.
But, as one would expect, Burchill's poisonous outbursts are followed by some tender “light waves” of self-love: Israel was named recently as “the eighth happiest country in the world – coming in above Britain and the US”, says the proud Zionist enthusiast.
And I am now more concerned than ever. If Israelis can be so pleased with themselves at a time when their army locks millions of Palestinians in concentration camps with no food or medical supplies, it really says a lot about the Jewish State, the Israelis – and it says a lot about Sabbath Goys like Julie Burchill.
I am afraid that we are dealing here with a morbid psychotic-ideological collective. I wish I knew how to help them – or at least how to save the rest of us.
