Double bill: Mary Rizzo on pro-Israeli bias in Italy and Maria Poumier's rejoinder

Pro-Israeli bias in Italy is not an exaggeration, it is a program

I just finished reading a very interesting article that an excellent Turkish compendium site Perspektifs in Foreign Policy about Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism. It got me to thinking about a few things, such as discrimination, the idea of sects and cults, religious intolerance and race. Of course, these thoughts and musings are far from original, but once in a while, it is useful to reflect upon what we take for granted, and what we get scandalised over.

One example of what I want to say is the “protective” approach towards certain religions and the “insensitive” approach to others can be demonstrated in the line from a very popular film by Aldo, Giovanni e Giacomo, “Tu la conosci Claudia?”. In this film, the three protagonists are discussing Claudia, and how at one point she states that the only thing that she can’t stand more than her ex-husband are Jehovah’s Witnesses. (That line provoked laughter in the cinema). Now, Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo are really intelligent comedians, they usually take the common Italian stereotypes and ridicule them in a non-offensive way. They can do that, because they are Italians and Italians are famous for self-irony. But, I just have to wonder, what did the Jehovah’s Witnesses as a group do to deserve such a putdown, even if it was pretty mild? Would we laugh if the same line was the only thing that she couldn’t stand more than her ex-husband was Jews? I don’t think a line like that would have escaped the censors. The feelings of Jehovah’s Witnesses are not protected as if they are a group whose feelings don’t matter and a religious group that can be ridiculed as a whole, globally condemning them as something that we understand is negative in a natural way. Everyone seems to think Jehovah's Witnesses are invasive, it seems, and therefore, a bothersome group of people.

Why could this be? Is it that it is considered “normal” to detest the Jehovah’s Witnesses? Or could it be that they are powerless against such smears?

Do we eliminate protection from those who are weak and put extra protection for those who are powerful?

I took a look at the European Council’s page on discrimination, Italy and didn’t find anything about Jehovah’s Witnesses or even about Arab or Muslim discrimination. I find that pretty interesting, since at least where I live you see on a lot of doorbells a little sign that states, “Jehovah’s Witnesses DO NOT come to call!” I don’t know, I sort of think that kind of thing is a little offensive, but maybe I’m being too sensitive. What if it said “Jews, DO NOT come to call!” I think there would be a segment dedicated to it under the large category of Anti-Semitism, which generally consists in graffiti and slogans at football matches.

Speaking of football matches, I do recall a banner calling a goalkeeper of the opposing team “Black”, but don’t remember any kind of issue made of this. There is something different about the way the public treats discrimination against Jews and discrimination against others, and part of it must have to do with the fact that in fact, the majority of the news in Italy is indeed filtered through Jewish editors. The main editor of the first channel, Clemente J Mimun is an Israeli citizen, Canale 5 (the major private channel) has as it’s former major news editor Enrico Mentana, who now presents the channel’s only news talk show, a self defined “secular left Jew”. La7 the third pole, has as its news desk Gad Lerner (another Israeli citizen) and Giuliano Ferrara (who sponsored the Pro-Israel march a few months ago). The newspapers are pretty much the same, the most important national paper, La Repubblica is owned by a Jewish family, the other major paper Corriere della Sera is directed by Paolo Mieli (former director of the first National television channel) who has expressed that he was a victim of anti-Semitic smears (a graffiti in an elevator) during the period of his nomination to direct the entire agency of Italian national TV. I could never see the connection to his “not being nominated” and the graffiti, which had been given so much emphasis as if this was the most important issue ever to have befallen the Jewish community in Italy. In other words, I don’t think anyone backpedaled on the nomination, because a graffiti was found and given emphasis on national news as if it should concern all of us and make us support without any hesitation the nomination of Mieli and to imply that if he were not appointed, it was because of anti-Semitism and no other reason.

The examples are actually endless of the huge influence that Jews and Israelis have in Italian communication. It is indeed huge if there are 29,000 Jews in Italy out of a population of 58.462.375, something like 0.052% of the population. Jehovah’s Witnesses number 400,000, with 363,000 who go door to door, thus becoming target of these exclusionist doorbell announcements. Out of a population of almost 58 and a half million people, it does seem like the “threat” of having an invasion of Witnesses is slim indeed, although it happens to all of us at least once a year. Yet, each and every day, a message in favour of Israel is beamed directly into our homes at all hours of the day and night. We are also instructed that discrimination against Jews is worse than discrimination against other minorities. Anyone can see that the positions of power in the Italian mass media are distributed vastly in favour of the effective representation of the Jewish, and especially, Zionist, population. It is clear that if such a comment made to incite a chuckle in the Italians could never be directed towards Jews, even though their presence and message is overwhelmingly dominant.

What is wrong with the message? I am against discrimination, just as I hope all the rest of us are. But, I am against the assumption that there are certain ideas of discrimination that are more important. When yesterday the national news reported on the firecrackers in Nazareth, they referred immediately to the perpetrator as simply being “mentally unstable”, and not motivated by racist intentions or seeking to ignite racial unrest, which is quite the opposite of how anti-Jewish graffiti is treated, stemming from deep seated racial hatred in their eyes, and we are made to feel scandal and shock. Following the killing of eleven people in Libya outside the Italian Consulate, instigated by a gesture on Clemente J Mimun’s PRE-RECORDED transmission, where an Italian Minster flaunted his anti-Muslim t-shirt, the authorities immediately spoke against racial hatred. Where did they go? Our President Ciampi went to the Synagogue of Rome! When Thursday the evening radio show, a guest mentioned that in Israel the water is controlled by the Ministry of Agriculture, and in the West Bank, by the Israeli Ministry of Defence, making water an effective military weapon against Palestinians, rather than allow the comment to continue, the phone call was abruptly cut off. We are not allowed to even think of such things. This is the state of the brainwashing present in our mass media, examples are far too numerous to even cite, and it is that way because those who have the power want this state of affairs because they have a vested interest in Zionism and Israel, and no kind of comments challenging that can even be voiced or allowed to be heard. We are treated as if our critical capabilities should not be threatened with reality or with making a connection between a pro-Israel platform of our mass media and the promotion of the idea that there is deep and irrational anti-Semitism in Italy, but other kinds of discrimination are completely ignored, as if there is not a problem of the sort.
Maria Poumier responds:

Mary, you wrote a very shamirian page, good! Just let me add something: in a sense, now all, in Europe, know that things are exactly as you say; the taboo is not anymore a taboo, except for people whose standard of life depends on their loyalty with Yisrael. Our big zionist Alexandre Adler wrote it recently : Dieudonne spread and gave us freedom of speech, about the Masters of discourse, with his brave jokes, there is no way to go back, in popular feelings and speech. I feel that indeed the last taboo is to say that Jews are wealthy; in that case, you cannot say “Zionists” instead of “jews”; it is not a matter of ideology. You know that in the upper class families, nobody ever speaks about money : it is like death or sex, too serious matter, linked with guilt and fear and God's justice. The ones who speak in a free way about money and robbers are the poor, those who have nothing to lose. Now, this is linked with the question of unequal discrimination you mention : in speech, openly, widely, one wide category of people are insulted at any time : Blacks. For many "clever" and "good" people , they are just useless, no hope is reasonable about their future, and so on; I am not going to waste my time and our readers' time explaining why this approach is wrong (and I would not convince anyone, it is a deeply rooted unconscious mental disease at work). I just want to mention that our Masters of Discourse are ready to divert our resentment about Jews, not on Jehova's witnesses, but on Blacks; and they are much more than some 0.0 something, in whole Europe! Sorry to disturb anyone, with this prophecy : we are so blind about that real facts, that the Masters of Discourse are already preparing great slaughters on European Blacks. They can do it perfectly, because we will be so happy that they let us (we, the Whites) write every day more openly against zionism, that we are already thanking them for that, with our silence and complicity!!!! 

Shamir did the real pioneer work, a few years ago, and gave us the method to write shamirian and good things, as you do, Mary. Now we have to face the new battles (not just remain on the same field, that does not disturb so much our enemies, they are used to it ! They say : the same old antisemitism as ever, so what?). Alain Finkelkraut has started a terrible campaign against Blacks, in France; as even the christian press here blesses him, he will go further. No White wants to recognize being a racist, at least in Europe; so we, the intellectual white antizionist class, will not express openly our hate and fear and despise against Blacks; we are just allowing jewish pundits to do the dirty job, I mean be openly racists, speak widely as racists,  criminalize Blacks openly; with total hypocrisy, we will say : "shame on them, these zionist Jews are so racist!" But what we should say is : "shame on us, we are just the same as jewish pundits, reasoning as the wealthy ones, who fear to be obliged to share their "properties" with awful Blacks, people we feel are not equals, and should not be treated as equal". There is a silent agreement, about this question. And as you know, silent lies, as open lies, lead to crime.

That is what happened in the USA in times of KKK : the idea of equality was unbearable for many Whites, after slavery was abolished; in Europe, massive immigration from Africa produces now the same kind of rejection. We cannot just let things go on like that! Jehova's witnesses are not invading Europe, they just make it more boring! Europe has a world wide responsibility, we cannot react against immigration just as unconfessed wealthy Jews, we have to show other manners, some smart gestures, some more sense of justice.


Obviously, Africans are absolutely antizionist, because they know perfectly that Israel protected the apartheid regime in South Africa, and are still very heavy in all the productive business in Africa, and in the systematic protection to corrupted leaders (and some ancient other matters too, obviously, Chams' curse and its historical use in order to legitimate massive enslavement). The antizionist Europeans need the black antizionism. Blacks are not a small minority in every European country, but a huge worldwide real power, with their natural and real intellectual elite, even if we don’t know them (do you remember what our enemies said at the beginning about Shamir? "he is not main stream, nobody knows him, he is not representative"; and remember how he answered brilliantly; now, he is so well known, that our enemies need to use the french LICRA against him, although it is ridiculous!). We have to help them to be stronger, because we have the same enemy : the ideology of supremacy; at least, I suppose the Shamir’s readers and defenders as a whole are fighters against any supremacy, and for equality of mankind in spirit and for the victory of spirit? We (at least the youngest ones?) all have some mulatto experience, we really know, by our familiar, artistic, love stories, that Blacks and Whites are not like dogs and cats, different animal species.


All these things I am telling you at present, are things I am learning from Alain Finkelkraut himself : he wants to be recognized in France not as a Jew, not as an Israeli, not as a zionist (he is able to criticise a lot of thing about that topics, including H narrative); but he wants to be recognized as our representative of Whites, historical belongers and owners of Europe, against Blacks (and Arabs). Arabs and Muslims have a natural defence : their religion, their oil, their proud ethnic conscience of themselves. Blacks have not that kind of defence, at present; they are respected only if they accept the dominant white patterns, which is a kind of betrayal of themselves (the same as if, you and me, Mary, as women, had to agree that now, only gays are allowed to bring babies to live; we share a lot of things with males, gays or not, but we must defend ourselves as females too, isn't it?); and Blacks are hated and scorned by Arabs too, not only by ethnic Europeans. For all that reasons, our antizionism, and our European loyalty to our land, and our historical shining freedom of thought, oblige us to be absolutely brotherly with black resistance and actual revival.

There is no alternative to this. Otherwise, Zionists and antizionist elites will make peace on the ground of whiteness. It would be criminal, and a suicide for European enlightment. Just a joke (not supposed to make anyone laugh, alas!), as a conclusion: "anti-Semites are the ones that Jews don't like": Louis Farrakhan is one who says that simple truth; but we are used to agree with Zionists, and say with a mental smile : “oh, but Farrakhan IS an antisemite, no doubt!” If you agree with that, you are already signing your white blood agreement with the devil...

Black thinkers are offering us the means to express openly our antiracism, and built immediately a non-zionist society, defending the subject of reparation. Let me explain, don’t start shouting : “they must not imitate Jews, it is the wrong way!”. Reparation means financial compensation for what you can measure in financial terms, as all civil laws use to consider, and there is no reason to apply this rule only for the benefit of Yisrael. Africa has been spoiled of her treasures, Europe owes them to her, it is our historical debt, the same as for the American natives. Some banks, some enterprises, can make an agreement with other banks and enterprises for that, because many of them have been in the African business for centuries; the slave owners received compensations when they set free their slaves, compensation cannot be only for the Whites.

But reparation is more than that; it has nothing to do with repentance, guilt and so on, generally hypocrite demonstrations. Reparation is recognizing that we are loyal partners. It is the abolition of resentment, the beginning of harmony. When Shamir fights for the one state solution in Palestine, it means he believes in reparation : negotiation between the dominant elite and those innocents who were spoiled, and loyal reconciliation with the same sense of justice on both sides: breaking, breaching and bridging, altogether. Of course it is humiliating at the beginning, for any former imperial minds. But afterwards, you will feel free, if you accept that there is no other way. Justice and truth and peace building are the three faces of the same thing, and they are beauty.

One can be frightened thinking that even if our mind gets clean on that topic, the Blacks will still purchase revenge, not only justice and peace. No, we must not fear that; when feminism grows, in any society, at any times, males can fear the female revenge, because they know how much they abuse against the weak. But it never happens in a big scale, because women need men; at least, it will not happen until women wont’need men any more. I hope they will still need one another for many centuries; and the same between Blacks and Whites. Perhaps I am wrong? I prefer to be defeated on that ground, not to win on the ground of injustice and lie with myself, and treason of worldwide real soul and spirit. And one defeat in our life time may be the seed of victory later on, as it always happens, with every important battle.
