GERMANY-1933 vs ISRAEL- 2009

By Khalid Amayreh

Journalist — Occupied Palestine

Editor’s note: The rise of the rightwing in Israel through the recent Knesset elections that was preceded by the bloody war on Gaza, that left more than 1,300 dead most of them are women and children, has aroused a lot of criticism among Palestinians. Khalid Amayreh opines about the rise of Lieberman.

“The ‘main surprise’ of the recent Israeli elections Avigdor Lieberman is a man who really has much in common with Adolph Hitler.”

In the early 1930s, many in Germany saw the Nazis as the wave for the future. Thousands of new members joined the Nazi party, giving absolute allegiance to the Fuhrer, Adolph Hitler. In the spring of 1932, with six million unemployed, chaos in Berlin, starvation and ruin as well as the threat of Marxism, and a very uncertain future, the masses turned to Hitler by the millions.

In the German presidential elections, which took place on March 13, 1932, Hitler received over 11 million votes or 30 percent of the total. His opponent, President Hindenburg, received more than 18 million votes or 49 percent.

With Hindenburg failing to get the absolute majority he needed, Hitler seized the opportunity and immediately embarked on a frantic campaign, arousing national feelings and promising something for everyone. In the Third Reich, he said, every German girl would find a husband.

Eventually, on a dark, rainy Sunday, April 10, 1932, the people voted, giving Hitler nearly 13.5 million votes, or 36 percent of the total, with Hindenburg receiving 19.3 million votes. After some political changes, in January 1933, Hitler took the reins of the German republic, being appointed as Chancellor.

We all  know the rest of the story.

Now, a similar story is being worked out in Israel, with Nazi-minded Israeli leaders, triumphing in the recent  elections which came at the heel of a genocidal blitzkrieg that destroyed the bulk of the Gaza Strip and killed and maimed thousands of innocent Palestinians, including hundreds of children.

Towards Full-fledged Fascism

The outcome of the elections, which took place on February 10, proves beyond doubt that the Israeli Jewish society is drifting toward full-fledged fascism.

True, Zionism  has always been inherently fascist since it embodies racism in its ugliest forms. However, the new breed of Zionist leaders are quite unapologetic about their genocidal propensities.

Take for example, Avigdor Lieberman, the “main surprise,” of the recent elections. This is a man who really has much in common with Adolph Hitler. He is ambitious, calculating, and very manipulative. He is also racist to the core, anti-democratic, and especially genocidal in his views and political thoughts. He combines the ruthlessness of Joseph Stalin and the jingoism of the Nazi Fuhrer.

During the recent murderous onslaught on Gaza, Lieberman proposed dropping a nuclear bomb on Gaza. He was not speaking facetiously; he says what he means and he means what he says.

Lieberman’s other ideas include flooding Egypt by bombing the Aswan Dam, blanket-bombing Palestinian population centers, throwing thousands of Palestinian prisoners into the Dead Sea, and destroying Tehran with nuclear bombs.

Now Lieberman, whose manifestly fascist party has become the third largest in Israel, is the rising star of Israeli politics very much as Adolph Hitler was the rising star of German politics in the late 1920s and 1930s.

And as German political leaders sought to endear themselves to Hitler, most Israeli politicians on the right and left (the Israeli left is actually more right-wing than the most right-wing party in the Western world) are now currying favor with Lieberman and imploring him to join them in a coalition government.

But Lieberman’s ambitions go far beyond becoming merely an important component of the Israeli political system. His eyes are focused on one thing: Becoming leader of Israel.

Not the Black Sheep of Israeli Politics

Despite his repulsive  notoriety, Lieberman is not really the black sheep of Israeli politics. In fact, Lieberman, notwithstanding his Nazi propensity, the former Moldovan immigrant may be considered “moderate” when compared against a plethora of other fascist parties in Israel such as Ichud Leumi (National Union), Habayit Hayehudi (the Jewish Home) which advocates or stops short of advocating biblical-style genocidal annihilation of all Palestinians “because God says so.”

However, Lieberman’s pubic appeal and ability to arouse the rabble makes him far more dangerous than any other political party in Israel. He is a man who is capable of leading Israelis to the same destination that  Adolph Hitler took Germans to nearly 80 years ago.

But, unlike the Germans, many of whom did not really know where they were being led to, most Israelis seem quite aware that fascism, or more correctly, Jewish Nazism, represents the modus operandi in Israel today.

On Thursday, February 12, the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz quoted Rabi Dr. Michael Ben-Ari as saying that the outcome of the Israeli elections proved that Israelis in general accepted the racist views of Rabbi Meir Kahane.

“Rabbi Kahane made long inroads and I think the Israeli public in these elections gave an unequivocal answer as to where it is turning,” Ben-Ari said in an interview with Galli Tzahal, the Israeli Army Radio.

Kahane advocated the genocidal ethnic cleansing of non-Jews in Israel-Palestine. He put his evil ideas into a book entitled “They Must Go.”

Ben-Ari, a self-confessed Kahane disciple, had declared that Palestinians in Israel-Palestine should be expelled to places like Venezuela and Turkey.

He declared that he would want to be Interior Security Minister, presumably in order to ethnically cleanse non-Jews in Israel.

“Someone has to create order with regard to a few matters!!. And I wouldn’t object to filling those shoes.”

Committing the Unthinkable

The gloomy portents coming from Israel these days must be taken seriously, or else humanity would allow the repetition of the events that led to the massive atrocities of the Second World War.

The criminal, psychotic, and megalomaniac political class in Israel is simply capable of committing the unthinkable.

They are armed to the teeth, nearly immune from external pressure, and firmly confide
nt that the Jewish lobby or lobbies is in tight control of America from California to New York and that all America’s leaders, from Nancy Pelosi to Barack Obama are deep in the Jewish pockets.

Hence, the world must not allow this menacing bellicosity to go unchecked.

I know that some of those languishing under the influence of Zionist hasbara, especially in Europe and North America, may dismiss my warnings as far-fetched or highly exaggerated.

Well, those I want to ask a simple question: Who would have thought in 1933 that Hitler would ever do what he did?

    Who would have thought in 1933 that Hitler would ever do what he did?

    Anyone knowledgeable enough: Nazis were extremely racist and national-imperialists. It was perfectly known that they aimed to conquer Russia in the name of anti-bolshevism and make it “the India of Germany”. In fact, it was only the fear that such a German empire would overshadow the British and US ones, which pushed these countries to war. Otherwse they supported Hitler an other fascist leaders, not just in the 1930s but also later through all the 20th century – in Europe, America and elsewhere.

    Let’s not decieve ourselves: the Anglosaxon Empire (in he past led by Britain, now by the USA) has never cared a shit about democracy outside its metropolitan areas. They are only interested in imperial hegemony by any means.

    And, while Germany was a major competitor for this Anglosaxon Empire, it’s hard to see how tiny Israel can be. Unless one considers the “shadow empire” that is the Israel Lobby. The Anglosaxon Empire is much more concerned about Russia and China than about Israel, though admittedly some within it may (and probably should) be heavily concerned that the politics of this Zionist mini-state are conditioning so strongly the foreign policy of the Empire and causing such delegitimization of their ideological discourse by undermining democracy and the most fundamental human rights and forcing them to disable such powerful allies as used to be Iraq.

    I have not written to you before DP but I enjoy your blog very much and have been reading it almost daily for a few months now. What is said here in this piece is true.

    I have recently been looking into this very topic and, well, since I see it happening so rapidly in the U.S. of A., and Canada, and Britain, and around the world, I cannot help but feel we are being overtaken by a fascist society, around the world. However, only in Israel is it becoming so acceptable by the masses.

    Recently I posted an article called “How to Kill a Palestinian” and in it I included information and quotes from various popular Rabbis within Israel. I have also watched and studied the settlers as well as the treatment accorded to ordinary Christians in parts of Israel by every day citizens. It is not a good situation at all.

    I have also watched a fascinating movie called PEACE PROPAGANDA AND THE PROMISED LAND: The U.S. Media and the Israeli ~ Palestinian Conflict. The link is in the Truth series of short videos I posted. I think you might truly enjoy that. It will further anyone’s understanding of the situation there. Once you see how controlled the information flow is within Israel you understand much more deeply the situation.

    As much as they tried to control what went on in Gaza, they also control the news of the LARGE contingent of Peace activism within Israel. They hide this from the world as if it is shameful to have peaceful citizens who do not prove a united front of hatred towards Muslims.

    Then of course those horrible comments by the embraced new leaders of a country with a history of rule by terrorists suddenly made Nobel Prize winners! I watched a programme at the PalestineRemembered site last night about, to my GREAT shame, a park in Israel, created by Canadians in which 3 villages were razed to the ground for its creation. The investigator met lies and blockades everywhere.

    Such control is fascist and right into Nazism or Communism, both twins when you rip the clothing off. Anyhow, I do hope you can take a look at that move on Peace and Prosperity. It is a true mind opener. I would like to think that, as much as your blog has opened up my eyes and contributed to my knowledge, I can perhaps return the favor to you in some small manner.

    Last night I was studying the hate literature given to the soldiers before going out to slaughter the Gazans, and what is said in this article is very very true.

    Me again. Giggles. I just noticed we are on the same wavelength. You, too, posted that Truth series. I just found it! Only I did all 6 of them because I also maintain an active presence in YouTube as well. My blog is full of lists. Perhaps you have seen The Arrivals? Cheers, now I have to scoot!

    Up until 24 March 1933 when the Daily Express of London had the banner headline Judea Declares War on Germany there was no like policy by Mr Hitler against the Jews.

    Indeed, the Nazis even tried to appease the Jews, for in 1934 Dr Goebbels ordered that a medallion be struck which was to signify mutual values by having on one side the Swastika and on the other the Star of David.

    So, why was that trade boycott announced on 24 March 1933 ? The reason was simple. Although the Zionist bankers in Germany had generously financed the Nazi Party from October 1928 they found that Mr Hitler declined to restore the Reichsbank to them, it having been nationalised in 1930. Indeed, Mr Hitler went further, he said to them that henceforth loans would be interest free, as would existing debts, and these loans would be issued by the Reichsbank.

    German prosperity came from nothing to surpass every country in Europe by 1938, and this could not be allowed to stand as these other countries would recognise that the drag on their potential prosperity was the charging of interest on loans, and the way to this prosperity would involve the State issuing the loans interest free.

    But the private banks would be bereft of function and would wither, as the peoples of the world would not want to pay interest on what is, after all, just a medium of exchange created by fiat – meaning there is no magic to money.

    So, the uppity Mr Hitler and his Germany just had to go, and indeed the trade boycott was transformed into a war of extermination from 1939-49. The extra four years was a conscious policy of extermination of the German civilian population through malnutrition and medical neglect, with the result that more Germans died after the war than during the war.

    I should conclude by saying that the boycott by Judea of Germany continued on until war’s end in 1945, but Dr Goebbels, responding to pressure, declared a symbolic boycott gainst Jews for one day only – 1 April 1933.

    michael mazur,
    you are crazy, what is your source? Mein Kumph?

    Mein Kumph, as you call it, was published in 1925.

    Chancellor Heinrich Bruning did say in a letter to Churchill in 1937 that, “I did not and do not even today, for understandable reasons, wish to reveal that from October 1928 the two largest regular contributors to the Nazi Party were the general managers of two of the largest Berlin banks, both of Jewish faith, and one of them the leader of Zionism in Germany”.

    Bruning was one of the last Chancellors of the Weimar Republic, and was in a position to know. If you want to know more, go to Irving’s site.

    So, tell me James, what do you think happened between 30 January 1933 and 24 March 1933 ?

    Tell me that these Zionist bankers were not in earnest conversation between those two dates, first with Mr Hitler, and then, with no results to their satisfaction, with those who gave the nod for that banner headline in the Daily Express ?
