Klemperer on Zionists

Post by Curtis E Wipe » Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:05 pm

“To me the Zionists, who want to go back to the Jewish state of A.D. 70 (destruction of Jerusalem by Titus) are just as offensive as the Nazis. With their nosing after blood, their ancient "cultural roots," their partly canting, partly obtuse winding back of the world they are altogether a match for the National Socialists. That is the fantastic thing about the National Socialists, that they simultaneously share in a community of ideas with Soviet Russia and with Zion.”

Right or not?

Who are the Zionists who want to go back to the Jewish state of AD 70?
I was surprised to see a footnote to Victor Klemperer's1914 book on Montesquieu in something I was reading recently. I had kind of forgotten that he had a career as a scholar before the Nazis took over.

Klemperer said that in 1934. He later came to think of the Nazis as worse than the Zionists, not very surprisingly.

Not …

Zionism has deep roots that go back to the original diaspora. The Nazi's have no antecedents (unless you buy into the mystical "Thule" and it's links to Atlantis.)

National Socialism was fabricated by German Capitalists with the specific goal of eradicating communism. The Jews were major sponsors of communism. With their segregated society anchored in Mosaic socialism, they made perfect scapegoats.

I will allow that modern Zionism has developed aspects that parallel Nazi thought. But I also must conclude that they are aware of this and, to their credit, are constantly avoiding the mistakes the Nazi's made.

can't not notice the similarity between the ghettos of Gaza and Warsaw though..

you know, surrounded by fences, guarded, access and supplies controlled, one state religion guarding another stateless religion..

the guards consider the guarded as barely human.

group punishments,

the 'jewish' problem and the 'palestinian' problem.

undeniable similarities.

Otto Klemperer? One of the greatest conductors of all time.
