This new book tells the story of the millions of ordinary Jews around the
world who remain silent while jewish Israel expelled, dispossessed,
murdered, tortured, raped and pillaged millions of innocent and helpless
Palestinians from 1948 to the present. Deliberately titled in the past tense
it accentuates today's silence.
In excruciating detail with meticulous documentation the author gives dozens
of examples of silence in the face of atrocities unquestioned and even
proudly announced by the government of Israel. Citations from major wire
services and newspapers and magazines, TV networks and internet sources
clearly demonstrate the silence cannot be attributed to lack of information.
Drawing upon his encyclopedic knowledge of Zionism and decades of study of
events in Israel, the author paints a compelling picture of millions of
silent Jews around the world failing to lift their voices against the
actions of Israel. More than simple silence, he documents dozens of jewish
organizations speaking in the name of diaspora Jews giving full support and
financial assistance to Israel without a word raised in protest by the
silent majority of Jews.
The author vividly contrasts the ugly, aggressive Israeli with the silent
majority pointing out the contrast is so sharp as to doubt the existence of
a silent majority. The author inexorably leads the reader to the conclusion
the silence is in fact affirmation and support of the execution of
In case after case the author documents what appears to be criticism of
Israel by a few Jews prominent Jews and jewish organizations are no more
than mere quibbles over details while condoning the objectives, giving the
impression of disagreement where it is no more than a discussion of the best
route to drive across town.
The author produces tables from the public tax returns of non-profit jewish
organizations showing how hundreds of millions of dollars escape taxes each
year by being sent to Israel in support of stealing land from Palestinians.
Financial claims from fund raising letters and transcripts of soliciting
phone calls are reproduced.
The author gives numerous examples of everything from crude communist style
propaganda to the best of Madison Avenue which exist in the every day public
discourse and dissects them in comparison to the real history of Israel in
the words of its own government and own historians. The reader will never
look at Israel in the same light again.
The alliance between pro-Israel Jews and the most anti-intellectual,
repressive and racial supremacist elements of society is exposed in such
detail the reader asks himself why he has not seen it before reading this
book. The alliance between Zionism and apartheid South Africa from its
beginnings with Herzl and Rhodes through its cooperation in nuclear weapons
development and testing is exposed. The unholy alliance between American
Christian fundamentalism and Zionism, each believing in the ultimate
destruction of the other, is documented in detail.
This stunning documentation and condemnation of jewish silence is not a dry
read of details but rather a described in terms comprehensible to even the
casual reader. Verbose Zionist justifications and explanations are reduced
to their simplest terms in ways that will often bring to chuckle to the
reader's lips and a "how could I have missed it" to the mind.
The Jew reading it will question his own silence. The Jew reading it will
question the advocacy of those who claim to be his leaders. This book is
certain to divide congregations and set synagogue against synagogue. The
powerful, simple and direct exposition arms all readers with ready answers
which cut through the fluff and diversion of Zionism.
Chapter 4, entitled One Thousand and One uses for dead
Relatives cuts through through the cynical and self-serving use of
the Shoah, named the Holocaust by Hollywood, as supporting the meanest
actions of politicians in Israel. Should the government protect West Bank
squatters, euphemistically called settlers, while they attack and kill
Palestinians? If it does not the Palestinians will finish the work of
Hitler, is the nutshell of the answer provided by the author. Should Israel
make peace under fire? If under fire then in the fire, is the Zionist
Chapter 10, entitled Can Hollywood be wrong? digresses upon
the Hollywood popularization of the label Holocaust being so influential
that it has largely replaced the original name Shoah in the world. Pointing
out the dichotomy the author notes that in Schindler's List
even Hollywood mega-producer Stephen Spielberg portrayed gas chambers as a
camp rumor instead of being real. In a cutting analysis of the cliff-hanger
style portrayal the author suggests the movie will be used to prove
in the future "we knew it all along."
In the epilogue the author deals with the obvious comparison of his book
with Goldhagen's, Hitler's willing Executioners and not only
admits the comparison is deliberate but cites it as his inspiration. Silent
Germans permitted Nazi Germany to destroy the foundations of European Jewry
and silent Jews are permitting Zionist Israel to destroy the foundations of
Palestinian society and even its humanity. Copious materials support a near
exact parallel between the two silent peoples.
Even if you have no interest in this subject it will provide insight into
how a political movement, Zionism, can pervert an entire religion, Judaism,
and co-opt another religion, fundamentalist Christianity, to its ends and cow
the dissenters into silence. Those who have read Goldhagen's book will find
the parallels as striking as the author says he found them.
In the end we cannot see how the future will judge our actions today. The
christian admonition judge not lest ye also be judged has not applied
to Nazi Germany and will likely not apply to us either. Those who presume to
judge the entire world in their own eyes must expect to be judged by the
