Linda Sarsour said some bad things recently.
Apparently, she made the observation that Israel is built on Jewish supremacy.
I wouldn’t necessarily say supremacy. However, Israeli policies concerning Aliyah does bespeak a kind of homogeneity that is being forced out of other parts of the world. For instance, you can’t immigrate to Israel if you are a Christian… even if you are a Jew.
If traditional englishmen dared to claim that England was for traditional englishmen, everyone would claim that they were white supremacists and white nationalists.
So Linda Sarsour is just applying the rhetoric aimed at nationalists in the West to a very ardently nationalist country.
If nationalism = supremacy, which it does to Ben Shapiro, Jonah Goldberg, and a host of other conservative pundits, then Jewish nationalism is Jewish supremacy.
Maybe we should start asking ourselves if there really is something horribly wrong with it or not? Or is it only ok for the Jews? Because of their history?
Something I’ve been becoming embittered about is that I thought “Never Again” applied to all ethnic groups – never again would we let what happened to the Jews happen to anyone. It’s why I thought Holocaust education was important. But we have in this country an active campaign to dehumanize an entire ethnic group as what was done in the decades before the holocaust. But its anti-Semitic to compare the two.
So I have little respect for anyone claiming it is different because they are Jews. No. Either ethnic nationalism is right for everyone or it is right for no one. To argue otherwise IS, in fact, supremacy.
