Israeli Arabs, Jewish land, traitors and Furzi’s. One might ask himself what these things would have to do with each other. I will explain this later in this post, for each of these have a clear link to both RL (real life) and SL (Second life).
One of the modern-day thinkers used to say about history that “people do not learn from history.” And he was right, especially we – the Jewish people – do not learn from history. In Israel and all around the world there are these frantic effors to coexist with the Arabs and to come up with workable plans for Arab-Jewish coexistence. We have seen what this coexistence had brought forth. Pogroms against Jews and terrorist attacks, just as we have witnessed today. A savaged Arab that rampaged in a buildozer, killing three and wounded at least 45, and still… still do people wonder why they do this.
However, the remarkable Jewish inability or unwilingness to see the reality of the Arab hostility towards Zionism and a Jewish state is hardly of recent vintage. From the begining of the twentieth century, as modern nationalism swept from Europe into he Ottoman Empire, there existed Arab nationalist hostility thatgrew in intensity and hatred with every Jewish stride towar statehood in the land of Israel. The problem was that the early Zionists simply did not want to understand the basic fact of nationalism: no people is permanently prepared to live as a minority under another people in a land it considers its own.
Our (grand-)fathers would not see; we refuse to see. We are, indeed, their offspring.
From the very beginning of the modern political Zionist movement, the question of the Arab population in Eretz Yisroel was subject to incredible delusion and unimaginable self-delusion. It was Theodor Herzl who coinded the astonshing slogan: “the land without a people for the people without a land.” Perhaps a journalistic turn of a phrase, it was a bon mot. But in the terms of reality, Herzl could not be more wrong. That there existed a people – the Jews – without a landwas an unmistakable fact. But the land they rightfully called theirs was not empty of people.
The year 1880, from which he beginning of modern Jewish restoration dates, saw some 30.000 Jews in the land. They were of the old yishuv (‘community’), religious Jew living quietly underhe Ottoman regime, content to fulfill the mitzvah of dwelling in the land of Israel and subsisting for the most prt on charity. Alongside them dwelt some 80.000 Arabs. These latter may have been poor, ignorant, backward, lacking in political awareness, unconcsious of a ‘Palestinian’ nationhood, but they were there. And no one seemed to notice. On the one hand it was as if Arabs did not exist, or if they did, they really did not matter. ON the otherhand, there was a naive belief that this backwa› Create New Post — WordPressrd and primitive people would surely be delighted at the benefits nd progress that would be their lot, thanks to the advent of the progressive and talented Jews. As fr as an Arab national movment was converned, there was near unanimit that such a creature simply did not exist. The early secular Zionists even believed that the Arabs would culturally intergrate, be absorbed and assimilate with the Jews. MIchael Halpern even suggested hastening the process by internarriage on a massive scale. The nonsens of Arab “disappearance,” culturally or natinally, was to be echoed for years by the Zionist leaders, even when it was obvious to l that there was a large and growing Arab movement that was the deadly enemy of Zionism.
Terrible bloody massacres followed this Arab-nationalism – even before the creation of the state of Israel. A treat that the Jewish establishment did not want to see. Massacres in 1920 (in Jerusalem), 1921 (in Yaffa) and in 1929 in Chevron (Hebron), Jerusalem, Tzfat and many other places, 1936 – 1939 (throughout the entire country). 1947 (Jerusalem), from ’47 to period to May 1948 was characterized by numerous skirmishes, road ambushes, riots, bombings and massacres, whether organized by one of the other sides or spontaneous… just to name a few.
So we see that they did not want to see the real problem, just as our people nowadays refuse to see that it is impossible. Herzl, the other early Zionist leaders and perhaps even our leaders now, may sincerely not have mean it, but to think like this, was – and still is – a crude, contempuous rejection of Arab national pride.
I respect the Arab and that’s why I want him to go. Why? Because most of the Arabs do not want live in Israel under the Noahide laws and respect the Jewish-Israeli authority. I understand the Arab and he understands me. In their eyes – even though they are completly wrong – they still think that we have stolen their land and they want it ‘back.’ But I’m not going to give my land away either. This is something that a lot of people simply refuse to see.
But to come back to the title of this article, Arabs, Jewish land and traitors… Who are the traitors? The dictionary defines the words ‘traitor’ as follows: “One who betrays one’s country, a cause, or a trust, especially one who commits treason.” If we relate this our day and time we see that Israel actually has its own ‘fifth column’ as well: the Israeli Arabs. A lot of them (read: not all) are just as destructive as their brothers and sisters of Hamas, Fatah or the Hizbollah. And again the ‘establishment’ refuses to see it. Look for instance only at the Israeli members of the Knesset: Wasil Taha (Balad), who aided terrorists, visited enemy countries and talked with their goverment officials. Ibrahaim Sarsur (ra’am ta’al), who accused Israel of intentionally targeting Lebanese civilians and called for a united Arab front against Israel. And Talab El-Sana who said that Israel’s “extolled victory” in the Six-Day War not only did not lead to peace but also led to more wars. According to him Israel created the Hizbollah In 1982 and nowadays it is creating the next generation of fighters.
These people are our fifth column in the Israeli goverment. Let alone those who live among us as ‘civilians.’ Just look at the Arabs of the last two terrorist attacks in Jerusalem of today, and some months ago in the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva. Both of these were Israeli Arabs, living in Israel, with a Israeli pasport and full citizen rights. But our foolish ‘leaders’ look away, it is time not to look away, but see to see what is really going on.
The traitors here, are those that go out and talk with the terrorist, negotiate with them, giving them weapons, financial support and releasing bloodthirsty muderers with innocent Jewish blood on their hands. Those are the traitors, those who work together with the enemy. But not just people like Olmert and co. No, there are way more. Like the shalom achshav (‘peace now’) people, who provoke us again and again, incite the Arabs to go and demonstrate, to riot and make trouble.. for they know that it would gain them the world’s compassion. For whenever there is a victim, it must surely be a ‘poor Palestinian.’ Jewish victims are not worthy to talk about.
But besides the Arabs we always have the Russians. The non-Jewish Russians in Israel, we actually have quite a lot of them. Many of those Russians are not even pro-Israel, in fact the neo nazi’s we have in Israel are most often Russians. So it is not a strange sight to see a lot of Russians in Israel, speaking Hebrew fluently and even knowing a bit about Judaism, the history of the Jewish state and the Israeli military, since they too have to serve in the army. Which makes me to come back to the last part of this article’s title, the Furzi’s.
First I will give a short recap of what the Furzi’s are.
“The Furzis are a group in Second Life founded by Rainbow Pirandello and Spotz Spork. The name is a invention of Spotz Spork himself and is a combination of Furry + Nazi = Furzi. They dress like Nazis, have constructed a Nazi bunker, and worst of all, they are selling anti-Semitic propaganda.
As unfortunate as it is, a group of those cute little anthropomorphic avatars have turned to Nazism to satisfy what they claim is a “uniform fetish”. The display of Nazi symbols, wearing Nazi regalia, and other forms of Nazi worship have long since been rejected as glorifying the works and deeds of Hitler, and many European countries such as Germany, France, Belgium, and even Poland have laws against Nazism in any form. The display or sale of Nazi paraphernalia is banned in those countries. Yet these individuals regularly cover themselves in Nazi regalia as if the swastika (in this form and dress) has no more meaning than the ingredients label on a box of oatmeal.
While the Furzis claim to be ‘history buffs’, the fact is they have modified the Nazi uniforms to fit their own gang, though not even all uniforms. In some cases, instead of a swastika on their arm band, there is a paw. The uniforms are not all the same, so one many have a swastika, and another an SS Death’s Head or Totenkopf, besides that they are selling naziflags and many other nazi related things. As for their claim that their interest in these symbols is historical, by their own admission they do not reenact any historical events. The Furzi’s headquarters including their bunker where they openly glorify Hitler (yimach shemo) with posters on the walls is called ‘Das Waffenamt.’
So what is the connection between Arabs, Jewish land, traitors and the furzi’s? I will now tell you that. Just as the Arabs are a treat to eretz Yisroel (the land of Israel) – Jewish land and to our people’s survival. So are the furzi’s and their existence in SL not only an incredible insult to the Jewish people, the fact that Linden Lab allows them to stay there and spread their anti-semitism into the world is another treat on itself. It is like the German Jewish essayist Kurt Tocholsky wrote at the beginning of the Shoah (Holocaust): “A country is not only what it doesbut also what it tolerates.” In my opinion the active Furzi’s are a bunch of anti-semitic, hedonestic, Nazi glorifying thing – I do not have a better word for it. In fact the similarties between the (neo-) Nazi’s and the Arabs is quite interesting to see.
Even though the Muslims are no Nazi’s. Yes, they aren’t that ‘nice’ either, but in a different way then the Nazi’s. It’s like Ovadiah Shoher writes: “For centuries, German society was anti-Semitic, militarist, disciplined, expansionist, supremacist, and xenophobic. Germans fought among themselves and against other Europeans. Nationalism was deliberately inflated for the purposes of German unification, and fitted into the core attitudes of supremacy and xenophobia. Since the time immemorial, Germans were disciplined, ruthless soldiers. Swiss and Danes, for example, were militaristic, too, but have long passed the stage of nation-building which was very recent for Nazi Germany, and are therefore peaceful. France, Ukraine, Serbia and most other European countries could initiate Holocaust just like Germany; Ukraine did just that in the early twentieth century, and France efficiently collaborated with Germans to bring the Holocaust about. Very few Germans were actively involved in genocide, but others concurred; the very same pattern is visible in France, Italy, and other countries. Anti-Semitism is endemic to Christian culture and actionable in Europe. In America, anti-Semitism was never encouraged officially, and Americans, though dislike Jews, are unlikely to organize genocide.” Even in Iran (note: Iranians are no arabs) Jews are being treated better then Jews in the Arab country of Syria, where they are brutaly oppressed. In the nineteenth however century, German Jews lacked full citizenship and popular parties vehemently opposed endowing Jews with full civil rights. German newspapers routinely published anti-Semitic articles and cartoons – a thing unheard of even in Iran where the line is carefully drawn between Zionism and Judaism, and even anti-Zionist propaganda doesn’t remotely resemble the anti-Semitic fury in Germany (or the Arab countries). German culture is inherently anti-Semitic, with short-lived Weimar Republic being the only exception. Germany was anti-Semitic in the fourteenth century, in the twentieth, and in the twenty-first.”
This anti-semitic culture is being spread in SL – throughout the entire world – by people who claim to be history buffs but act nothing like it. Not only do they spread this hatred, they also – either willingly or unwillingly – act as a platform for neo nazi’s around the world to meet with eachother. Even though if one would not have this intention, they would still serve as it, for it attracts without a doubt neo nazi’s.
But like I’ve said before, “people do not learn from history.” When Ze’ev Jabotinsky visited Poland in the early 1930′s and told the Jews to run, to flee, to go to Eretz Yisroel because a danger was coming, the Jewish establishment made fun of him and slandered him. When Rabbi Kahane zt’l, hy’d stood up in the late 60′s to defend the Jews against anti-semitic thugs, whether they were in New York, somewhere else in the States, in Canada, or wherever in the world. The Jewish establishment worked against him, they came up with all kind of accusations, even lies about him. They were prepared to talkand sit around the table with outspoken anti-semites, but they refused to sit with Rabbi Kahane, because they were afraid. They knew that Rabbi Kahane was right, but they were afraid to act. They blinded themselves and refused to see the truth.
Unfortunately we have the same thing in Second Life. Many Jews look away, even though they know it is not right. Some of them even told me that they saw it, and they knew about it but they simply looked away. There are Jews and non-Jews in Second Life, but especially Jews that can do a lot about the griefing and anti-semitism in the Jewish sims (and outside them!), but they simply ignore it.
Let us hope that people will finally see and realize the reality…
