Law of antisemitism - why hate-jew, blame-jew is NEVER EVER about jews or Israel - it's about political power and demagoguing the sheeple


Law of antisemitism - why hate-jew, blame-jew is NEVER EVER about jews

Long, brilliant article that clearly shows why antisemitism is NEVER EVER about jews or israel, antisemitism is about political power and control and blame-shifting. Antisemitism is an effective tool to divert attention from the fact that Islam is a violent, false belief system based on slavery, death, suicide, hatred and murder. It's a lot easier to screech and howl at the jews than to tell your followers that perhaps it's time to clean up our blood soaked house of horrors.

Shi’ite Iran’s Genocidal Jew Hatred

....-the annihilationist threat to Israel posed by a Shi'ite Iranian regime gripped with an apocalyptic, Jew-hating fervor. The pillars of this continuous modern campaign of annihilationist antisemitism are the motifs from traditional Islamic Jew hatred, including, most significantly, Islamic eschatology. These deep-seated Islamic theological motifs are further conjoined to Holocaust denial, and the development of a nuclear weapons program intended expressly for Israel's eradication.

At the outset of the 16th century, Iran's Safavid rulers formally established Shi'a Islam as the state religion, while permitting a clerical hierarchy nearly unlimited control and influence over all aspects of public life. The profound influence of the Shi'ite clerical elite, continued for almost four centuries (although interrupted, between 1722-1795, during a period of [Sunni] Afghan invasion, and internecine struggle), through the later Qajar period (1795-1925), as characterized by the Persianophilic scholar E.G. Browne:

The Mujtahids and Mulla are a great force in Persia and concern themselves with every department of human activity from the minutest detail of personal purification to the largest issues of politics

These Shi'ite clerics emphasized the notion of the ritual uncleanliness (najis) of Jews, in particular (but also Christians, Zoroastrians, and others), as the cornerstone of inter-confessional relationships toward non-Muslims. The impact of this najis conception was already apparent to European visitors to Persia during the reign of the first Safavid Shah, Ismail I (1502-1524). The Portuguese traveler Tome Pires observed (between 1512-1515), "Sheikh Ismail...never spares the life of any Jew," while another European travelogue notes, "...the great hatred (Ismail I) bears against the Jews..."
