or support a state, in this case the State of Israel which is based on racial
supremacy, it is important to know who is and who is not a member of the master
race. Religion is there to
define who is a member of the herrenvolk or the untermenschen, that is all.
It is not surprising that in Israel, you can’t
convert to Judaism unless you are a White European. The Jerusalem Post
reported (1.4.16) ‘Palestinian
Requests To Convert To Judaism Rejected Automatically’:
Judaism in Israel, foreigners need to apply to the special cases panel of the
requirements” to be considered by the special cases panel, Rabbi Yitzhak
Peretz, director of the Israeli government’s Conversion Authority, said, “are that applicants be sincere and that they
are not foreign workers; infiltrators; Palestinian or illegally in the
country.” In 2014, he added, the special cases committee received 400
applications. “Half of the applicants were accepted, the rest were rejected as
foreign workers, infiltrators, illegal stayers and Palestinians.”
|The eugenecist origins of the Israeli state|
I am not an expert on Jewish religious
law but I do know that nowhere in the Talmud or the Torah is there any mention
of the fact that Palestinians cannot convert to Judaism. Nor is there any mention of ‘infiltrators’ or
foreign workers or illegal immigrants.
These are political categories.
In other words, in a state based on race you cannot have the lower races
or the Untermenschen joining the master race (herren volk).
This is perfectly understandable because in Israel being a Jew confers
privileges that non-Jews do not have and therefore you cannot have people changing
their race in order to get a house or an extra grant.
part of their false ‘anti-Semitism’ campaign in the Labour Party have been
targeting Jackie Walker. You can read
the details in my article The lynching of Jackie Walker and Jonathan
Rosenhead’s Jackie Walker: a suspense mystery. Being Black Jackie is and was an ideal target
for these racists. The only problem was
that she was Jewish. Hence we have the
spectacle of these Zionists, in the best traditions of the Nazis, investigating
Jackie’s ancestry in order to ‘prove’ that she isn’t Jewish.

‘relations’ or were raped by white men (the description ‘white’ in this

appears pretty ignorant of the positioning of Jews in the Caribbean, the flow
of Caribbean ethno-religious cultures, the conversion to Judaism undertaken by enslaved
African women who wanted/were coerced into ‘marrying’ Jewish men. There is no
comment on this – and for good reason, because Jew Know doesn’t have a clue,
reflected in Jew Know’s blog betrays deep-seated ignorance of the many
variations of Jewishness that have historically always been part of Jewish history. But according to Jew Know
everything to do with Jewish identity has the simplicity of any authoritarian
ideology; you are either Jewish or not. There is no scope for variation, no
intersectionality, no understanding of the potential conflicts, complex
histories inherent in being black and Jewish, Arab and Jewish, Asian and Jewish.
No, In Jew Know’s kosher world there is no room for complexity, no Jewish
diversity, just a nice, easy, genetic (or is it religious) monoculture where bright

Reformed Jews, those who advocate that Jewish identity can be inherited from a
father as well as mother – no.

beginning Zionism was, in the words of Max Nordau, Theodor Herzl’s Deputy, a
matter of race not religion. Nordau, was a follower of Lombroso the social Darwinist
criminologist. Nordau claimed that ‘The Jews possess a greater enterprising
spirit and abilities than the average European, to say nothing about
all those Asians or Africans.’ [Max Nordau to this People, New York 1941,
p.73] In an interview with La Libre Parole, Edouard Drumont’s
anti-Semitic daily, in 1903 Nordau explained that that ‘(Zionism) is not a question of religion but
exclusively of race and there is noone with whom I am in greater agreement on
this position than M Drumont.’ (Desmond Steward, Herzl, p. 322)

Nazis divided society into Aryan and non-Aryan.
How did they define the Jew?
Simple they went back to 1870 to see if someone’s grandparents were practising
Jews. Were they baptized? So the definition of race, which is supposed
to be biological in fact rested on religious practice which is why in the case
of the ‘mixed race’ Mischlinge, those who had one or two Jewish grandparents,
if the parents or the persons themselves or their children were practising Jews
then that determined their racial belonging.

integral to the foundation of the Israeli medical service under Dr Joseph Meir.

Not Have Children if They Won’t Be Healthy!‘]. Indeed it was integral to social policy at
the beginning of the Israeli state.

are at the bottom of the pile and many Zionists don’t accept that you can be Black
and Jewish. Much like Donald Trump
refused to accept that Barak Obama was Black and American, hence the Birther
movement demanded to see his birth certificate.
In Israel the Black Ethiopian Jews are the most discriminated against of
all and large parts of the Orthodox Rabbinate refused to accept they were Jewish
and insisted that the men undergo another circumcision.
The Black Hebrews were a sect that emigrated from the
USA and although a community of them live in the Negev near Beer Sheeva now,
many of them previously were deported from Israel because they were not
considered Jews. This is in essence what
lies behind the attempts of pathetic little racists like jonny dravitz to ‘prove’
that Jackie Walker isn’t Jewish.
That is where Jackie Walker comes
in. She was the Black Jewish anti-Zionist
who the Jewish Labour Movement and other Zionists tried to use as the
traditional symbol of the Black devil in the Labour Party, the archetypal anti-Semite.
of Return, which allows me to ‘return’ to Israel even though I’ve never lived
there but prevents a Palestinian returning even if they were born there (they
are classified as ‘infiltrators’) is based on virtually the same racial
criteria as the definition of a Jew under the Nuremburg Laws, viz. whether someone’s
parents or grandparents are Jewish.
Indeed under the 1970 Amendment it goes wider and classifies as Jewish for
the purpose of Return a spouse of a Jew.
Since Jackie’s father is Jewish then she is Jewish for the purpose of
the Law of Return but in Israel itself
the Orthodox Rabbinate control all personal affairs and the definition is much
stricter. You are only Jewish if your mother is Jewish and Reform Judaism isn’t
pathetic in the attempt of the Jewish Labour Movement under Jeremy Newmark and
petty little Judeo-Nazis like Jonny Kravitz trying to ‘prove’ that Jackie isn’t
Jewish. Except that they don’t even have
the courage or honesty to say that she is a cushi
