Diversity Macht Frei
January 19, 2018
A group of Israeli rabbis, including the sister of comedian Sarah Silverman, launched Tuesday an Anne Frank-inspired activist program calling on Israelis to hide African asylum seekers facing forced expulsion from Israel in their homes.
The Anne Frank Home Sanctuary movement hopes to assist the near 40,000 African asylum seekers predominately from Eritrea and Sudan that the Israeli government intends to deport either to their homelands or another sub-Saharan state beginning in April and over the coming two years.
“Who here would be willing to house people?” Rabbi Susan Silverman asked at a gathering of rabbis and educators in Jerusalem as she revealed the new campaign by Israeli human rights organization Rabbis for Human Rights. All of the 130 or so people in the room immediately raised their hands. Silverman said that while she hopes it won’t come to this, she believes that even talking about the idea should act as a deterrent to the Israeli government.
Silverman – an activist, writer and rabbi who immigrated to Israel from Boston in 2006 – thought of the idea to physically hide refugees in Israeli homes and presented it to the group. Rabbis for Human Rights will now oversee the protest, starting with the rabbis and educators who attended Tuesday’s meeting taking the message to their communities across Israel.
The plan also includes reaching out to kibbutzim, moshavim and synagogue communities around the country.
Silverman said her idea was inspired by U.S. sanctuary states and cities, which have been used as tools to fight the deportation of immigrants who entered the United States without authorization.
Jews are even using the ethnic food meme on themselves.
The extent to which Jews believe their own propaganda has always been an interesting question. Do they really believe that antisemitism is a mystical force that has no relation to Jewish behaviour? They couldn’t possibly believe that a diversity is strength, right? It’s all a trick to fool the goyim.
There’s a tendency in what we might call the “Countersemitic community” to think of all Jews as masterminds who are “in on the plot”. Personally, I think most of them aren’t too bright and are just as clueless as everyone else. One of the reasons that ethnonationalism is the optimal organising principle for the world is that ethnocentrism inspires a natural moral myopia: an inability to see things from the ethnic Other’s point of view. As the most ethnocentric people in the history of the world, this is a problem that afflicts Jews particularly. This is why you often hear Jews asking, with seeming sincerity: Why do they hate us?
The more intelligent Jews, I’m sure, know the answer and understand perfectly well the game they’re playing against us. But many, perhaps most, genuinely don’t. The Alt Right could, in a certain sense, be conceived of as, in part, a kind of educational outreach mission to this lumpenproletariat of clueless Jews to help them understand how it is they have managed to inspire antagonism in every other people they have come into contact with for the last few thousand years. And when our enemies accuse us of stirring hatred, or inciting antisemitism, we should, with a clear conscience, reply that, on the contrary, our efforts, for the first time, herald the very real possibility of bringing antisemitism to an end. By explaining to Jews how their own behaviour has consistently harmed the interests of other peoples, we offer them the chance to change; to undergo moral maturation; to become better people. Once the problem of the hostile behaviour of Jews – which we might call Semitism – is solved, the immune reaction to that problem – Antisemitism – will disappear overnight.
We on the Alt Right have the cure for antisemitism and it is our mission to bring it to both Jews and to the world. We should be proud of what we do – because we have the knowledge that can heal the world of one of its gravest afflictions.
Jews need to learn to be less ethnocentric. The Alt Right is going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Jews are not going to be living in the mind ghetto of the last few thousands years. The Alt Right will be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Jews to make. They are now going into Reduced Semitism mode, and the Alt Right will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Jews will not survive.
