Confessions of a former antisemite

Original Article

As an Iranian in Sweden, I was dubbed a “svartskalle”. Directly translated, it means “black head”, a slur aimed at the demographic which, in the Anglo-sphere, is often referred to as “brown” people. (Snip) Every new town I moved to - the first group of friends I made were fellow immigrants from the Middle East. One thing was consistent, regardless of where I went; We all hated Jews. In the cultures we grew up in - even when there was very little else in common (Shia v Sunni, Arab vs Persian, Religious vs Atheist, Theocrat vs Monarchist etc) - Jew-hatred is omnipresent. We were born with it, we grew up

Assuming Pars is still a muslim..his epiphany stopped short of naming the one thing all of his former Jew-haters had in common...Islam. Until Islam itself renounces its inbred genocidal racism towards Jews, no amount of individal epiphanies like that of Pars will change the cradle-to-grave bigotry that it teaches its followers.

Not going to read your mea culpa. If you ran into a bit of "racism" from the locals you invaded it is because they had no say in your invasion. Question, why are you people invading every country on the planet? Why are you leaving the motherland for infidel utopias ? The devastation you people have reeked on civilized societies may never be repaired. If now you have a personal epiphany for all of your peoples evil I suggest you go back to the motherland and express your feelings there see how many atta boys you get.

My apologies to Pars...I confess I did not read the entire article until after I had posted my previous post. Towards the end of the article, Pars declares that Islam is the root cause of Jew hatred in the Muslim world, and asserts that he himself has never been a muslim. While I agree with him that Islam itself is the root problem, I offer this apology to him for incorrectly assuming that he, too, was a muslim.

It's a very informative article. It is a full throated denunciation of all things Islam and why it is anticivilizational. If a former Dim could write a full throated denunciation of the Dim party in a similar manner that would be good.

Bottom line - There will never be peace anywhere in the world as long as Islam exists.

Definitely the must read of the day. Being a 2nd generation American of Austrian ancestry, I heard the mantra, "the jews owned everything",etc., etc., etc! My parents were some of the most compassionate people I've known, yet there was this latent antisemitism always lurking in the background. I still have cousins in Austria, and we've visited here in America and in Austria, and I can say that I don't know how they feel, because the subject has never come up. But children aren't born antisemitic, it's a taught belief. I have Jewish friends and during my premarried dating years, dated a Jewish girl. I found a distinct anti non-jewish bias amongst the Jewish population of South Louisiana/New Orleans. Of course, that was almost 60 years ago, so I can't speak for the present mood/beliefs prevalent now. Also, I had the freedom of forming my own belief system, because when I returned from SE Asia, I settled in S Louisiana, and my family was in Arizona. I guess what I'm saying is, learning hate/dislike is a two-way street.

#7, well, from this article, Sam Harris' article did "change one single mind", that of Amir Pars. Perhaps Amir Pars' article will, too. If Harris' article did change one mind that we know about, we can bet there are others that we do not know about. We may never know if Pars' article does the same, but then who would have predicted the Grand Canyon from those first drops of rain?

One of the clearest and most concise condemnations of Muslim Jew hatred I have read - I agree with poster #8 that it should be a top-of-the-page must-read. It illustrates the stark contrasts between the barbaric practices of today's Islam, its practitioners, and Judaism and the civilized West. I feel sorry for the over-educated and deluded Jews marching in these "protests" who apologize and empathize with the so-called "Palestinians". They are blind to the fact that Gazans and their Hamas leadership would think nothing of killing them and then showing off their carcasses once they have served their purpose on the world stage. greyseal

While reading his description of true muslim belief and behavior - both shia and sunni - and the culture that sprang from it, I couldn't help but think of the backward-facing culture that has rooted itself in our urban black population. Gangs are their sects, whitey is their Jew, and there is no allowance for common sense or dialogue. None. As for the article itself, I spoke with hundreds of Turks during my time there a few years back and learned that no matter how decent and congenial they were, to a one they hated "the g_d_ Jews" (as one shopkeeper put it). Now I know why.

No, my bingo card did not have Generation Z embracing the wit and wisdom of Osama bin Laden, but it probably should have. Osama bin Laden‘s ravings about how Israel is bad and America is worse, or vice versa, have hit a chord among recently-born TikTok viewers. Osama’s Been Litup’s rants have it all – claims of nefarious Jewish influence, complaints about evil capitalists, and whining like a little girl about Americans and Israelis fighting back against sociopathic Jihadi scum**** who go on murder sprees. This nonsense is supposed to provide “context” for 9/11, and to have further applicability to the current elimination of Hamas.

Memo to Hamas: Settler Societies Aren't Evil 3 replies

In the nauseating demonstrations celebrating Hamas' slaughter of Israelis, one hears repeated, again and again, the refrain that Israelis are "settlers" and "colonists" -- and therefore, in the catechism inculcated in universities in recent decades, oppressors not deserving of mercy or sympathy when tortured and murdered by those who deemed themselves the oppressed. (Snip) Of course, people -- and peoples -- don't always fit neatly into these categories. Jews have been living in the lands "from the river to the sea," between the Jordan and the Mediterranean, since Biblical times, in varying numbers. Their claim to the supposedly morally superior status of the indigenous has as much strength as

As the Israel-Hamas war drags on in its second month and shows no sign of abating, many Westerners have drawn comparisons between the state of Israel and Jim Crow-era America or apartheid South Africa. In their telling, Israelis are the white people, Palestinians are the black people, and the ethics of the conflict mirror the ethics of Jim Crow and apartheid. Once framed this way, the correct view becomes obvious. Israelis: racist oppressors. Palestinians: noble victims. (Snip) But close-to-home analogies rarely explain distant events. Whereas Europeans had no claim to belong in the New World, Jews are indigenous to the land and have lived there continuously for millennia.

Our real lives have become Black Mirror episodes. (Snip) I’ve never seen anything like this in my life, and neither have you. In fewer than 48 hours, TikTok has convinced tens of thousands of Americans to take the side of the man most responsible for 9/11. Think about that. The Chinese Communists have created a weapon that compels Americans to cheer for 9/11, the same as people throughout the Arab world did at the time. They are endorsing it because in the epistle, the leader of al Qaeda condemns the Jews and tells Americans he committed terror against them in part because of America’s support of Israel.

Federal public health agencies are reportedly withholding the most accurate and up-to-date reports of vaccine injury from the public, allegedly to protect privacy. Patients don't necessarily see it that way, and it's not clear the feds told Congress. The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, jointly managed by the CDC and FDA, has a secret "back end" privy only to regulators, an FDA official told advocates of VAERS reform nearly a year ago, according to a British Medical Journal investigation published Friday.

In recent days I have been seeing a lot of old images. I have been looking at pictures of London as it was, and Britain as it was. It is just a tiny fraction over a century since the Cenotaph, which honours Britain’s war dead, was completed and unveiled. It is a starkly simple monument, with an elegance characteristic of its era, and fitting to its purpose. A century, in the life of old nations, should be a little thing. And yet the world, and this nation, could hardly have been altered more radically if we had lost both the great world wars of the 20th century.

The word “genocide” may be the one rendered most meaningless in our discourse. It has some steep competition, of course. “White supremacy” now means asking someone to show up on time. “Trauma” means being referred to with the wrong pronoun. And “genocide” can, among other things, mean debating experimental sex reassignment procedures for children. (Go look up #transgenocide on Twitter and weep.) But the supporters of Hamas and of the Palestinians have seized the g-word with particular zeal. And who can blame them? There’s a real, adolescent frisson in accusing the victims of the worst genocide in modern history of being genocidal themselves.

Rachel Zegler is the go-to token Hispanic in Hollywood. Steven Spielberg hired her to be Maria in his remake of West Side Story. The film bombed like it were dropped from a B-52 as did her next movie, Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Her third movie premieres later this month. We will see if she is box office poison or box office toxic waste. Of course, that is not her third movie. The Disney remake of Snow White is. Disney shot the movie in England in the spring of 2022. Its release date was scheduled for this year, then next year and now it is set for 2025.

The assessment, which was written by the New York State Intelligence Center, was first reported by CBS News. The report found that due to the increased violence in Israel with the bombardment of Gaza, there has been a rise in 'chatter' about possible terrorism targets in the Big Apple.

It comes after classical texts claim the emperor once said "call me not Lord, for I am a Lady".
