Forum Post: Occupy Wall Street can NOT be a platform for anti-semitism

I have marched with the Occupy Wall Street movement to free us all from the tyranny of the wealthy who hoard our economic wealth.

However, I cannot support the anti-semetic accusations that Jews are the reason for our economic woes.

This sounds exactly like what occurred in Germany in the 1930's when the Nazi party came to power.

The whole idea that Jews control the wealth is misguided and represents a "projection" of the problem onto one group, instead of addressing the facts.

Statistically, when one looks at the list of multi-billionaires in the world today, there are very few Jews on the list. In fact, almost all are non-Jewish.

I strongly urge all the organizers of Occupy Wall Street to disallow the use of our campaign as a platform for anti-semtism.

Israel is a strong contributing factor to our economic problems. A simple fact; Jews do control a disproportionate amount of the wealth and there is in fact a zionist fascist agenda here. What is needed is NOT a blanket statement against "anti semitism" where that then labels reasonable complaints against fascist zionism. Whats needed is a strategica and tactical focus on the core issues of wall street, while we simulataneously affirm solidarity with those fighting fascist zionism while simultaneously removing that issue from the table.

I strongly irge the organizers to do all they can to keep this all on target and that means we need to get the fascist zionism issue off the streets and into a wiki.

This is a complicated issue that does not parse with street signs and yelled street communication.

"Zionist Fascist Agenda"? Get real. That's antisemitism right there. It sounds EXACTLY like Nazi propaganda before the holocaust. Your lumping all Jews into a made up category.

no. you get real. it is zionism. it is fascist. those are facts.

stop arguing with me and grasp that i'm the uber sane one in the middle outside of the argument trying to point to the REAL solution and resolution here. this topic can NOT be processed ina mob or crowd event. It can ONLY create negative energy andnegative press. Thus we MUST stop processing these issues. The ONLY way to defuse the situation is to let the anti zionists off the hook by letting them understand that their voices have been heard, their concerns taken seriously, and that we are all of us aware of the problem and have tabled it to some place other than protest space.

Its a bit bizzare to call me an antisemitic etc. I am for instance designing an arcology based on the tree of life and have a depth esoteric understanding of Qabllah. truly, i am the jewish sympathizer but the israel protester. We all should be.

You appear to not even know the definition of fascism. As you're obviously an idiot, this is not surprising.

i do in fact know the definition of fascism as i studied political science and this issue in depth. Calling me names proves you don't have an argument.

It seems i am in quite good company with such observations. I have a 180 IQ also... so it stands to reason that great minds think alike.


Letters to the Editor New York Times December 4, 1948


Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.

The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin's political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.

Before irreparable damage is done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in Begin's behalf, and the creation in Palestine of the impression that a large segment of America supports Fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objectives of Mr. Begin and his movement. The public avowals of Begin's party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state. It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.

This unofficial web site attracts a great number of silly, bigoted and quite irrational, lads and ladies, but that does not mean that the movement supports any of these things. If a Nazi throws his support for Mitt Romney, is Mitt Romney a Nazi? I am considering joing the NYCGA and I am Jewish: I am also quite openly hostile to National Socialism, Communism and other movements that have institutionalized the support of anti-Semitism. Still there will be bad people, in this movement, as in the Republican Party, Democratic Party, the Tea Party and every other movement in history.
