Ideologies (poisonous)

' maintained by anti-Semitism.  This may explain why Zionists are so enthusiastic about the growing statistics of anti-Semitic incidents.  Similarly, gay marginal politics is fuelled by homophobia amnd feminism thrives on the male chauvinist (p.33)......Zionists rely on burned synagogues...if there were no burned synagogues around, Mossad would go as far as burning some itself (p.43). .......the Israelis hate the Arabs, the Zionists hate the Goyim (in general), Jews against Zionism also hate the Goyim but they also hate Israel....But why do they hate so much?  the answer is simple.  Once Judaism is renounced, what remains of Jewish identity is pretty threadbare.  Once stripped of religious spirituality, all that is left of Jewish-ness is a template of negation fuelled by racial orientation and spiced up with some light cultural references such as matza balls and chicken soup (p.55) is not the idea of being unethical that torments Israelis and their supporters, but the idea of being 'caught out' as such (p.84).........'the more Israelis want to secure themselves by clinging to isolation, the more death they spread around themselves (p.85) [2012] The Wandering Who?: A Study of Jewish Identity Politics by Gilad Atzmon

What is a people? A people generally shares a way of life, a language, a food, a geography. There is no Jewish language. Shlomo Sand stumbles proudly in English, while of course many of the people in the audience were Jews speaking English. Food the Israelis have--stolen from the Palestinians—and still you must say that there is an Israeli people. But they are not the Jewish people. They are Israeli people, and the Palestinians are Palestinian people. Both made by Zionism.
    The Zionist project began inventing the idea of a Jewish people in the 1870s as a reflection of other nationalisms. The Zionists turned to the Bible for the foundational myth. The biblical myths are taught in Israeli schools from before children are taught mathematics and language--taught about the biblical associations of Jews to this land. But the Exodus is a complete myth. “As a historian, I try and predict the past. I’m not a prophet.” And what are the true predictions of the past: at the supposed time of the Exodus, the Egyptians also controlled Canaan. The kingdom of David and Solomon was not a kingdom at all, but a small settlement around Jerusalem.   [2009] At NYU, devilish Shlomo Sand predicts the Jewish past and pastes the Zionists

''When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.'' ~ Krishnamurti

''All ideologies are idiotic, whether religious or political, for it is conceptual thinking, the conceptual word, which has so unfortunately divided man.”  ~  Krishnamurti
