Judaism

As an atheist, I do not regard Judaism as any more rational than any other religions, so why is this page almost entirely in defence of Jews?

The reason is that Judaism itself has a benign (indeed very impressive) history, but other religions have an appalling history of inexplicable violence towards Jews. This page is really about those other religions.

Old anti-semitism (Christian, Nazi)

Christianity persecuted and killed Jews throughout its history, culminating in the Holocaust.

Modern anti-semitism (Islamic, left-wing)




Anti-Israel guy called Conor Madden attacks me for linking to the ADL survey of global anti-semitism.
Why? I am not sure.




Islamic anti-semitism



Leftist anti-semitism

The Arab world is openly anti-semitic, and is not ashamed of it. Europe hates Israel too, but claims that this is different.



"Hallucinatory" anti-semitism


Hatred of Israel is the new anti-semitism

  


It is the left, not the right, that commits the most anti-semitic attacks in the West.
From Antisemitic Violence in Europe, 2005-2015.




Martin Luther King

  


MLK said in 1968: "I see Israel, and never mind saying it, as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land almost can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy."


  

Comparing Israel to the Nazis




Me arguing with some US and Israel hater who compares them to the Nazis.
It is a form of Holocaust denial.



A vile cartoon, November 14, 2008, in the Emory Wheel student newspaper, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, compares Jews to Nazis.
See controversy.
Obviously, being prevented from killing Jews is the same kind of thing as being herded into a ghetto for extermination.
What kind of mind can regard the life-saving Israeli wall, which has led to a massive drop in suicide bombings, as similar to Nazi walls? I don't remember the Jews of 1940 suicide-bombing German civilians in coffee shops. I don't recall that the Germans herded them into ghettos in order to protect the German people.



Israel is just like the Nazis!
In Nazi-occupied Europe, people were always holding demos like this, holding up posters and screaming in the faces of Nazi troops. That was always happening.
From here.



Anti-Zionism versus Anti-semitism explained. Totally different!

Blocked by the regressive left and Islamists on Twitter: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Where to debate? Twitter's best days are over. I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a truly great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Since 2016, Twitter is broken. It is now full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could ever be appealed. It is time to find a better place to debate. I am on Parler at markhumphrys.
