In Defense of 21st Century Judaism and Israel

The Truth About Semites, Israel and Palestine


by Johnny Punish


Not all Jews are Zionists and NOT all Zionists are Jews.  There is a big difference.  One is a religion and other a political movement.  More, all Arabs are Semites and  NOT all Jews are Semites!  Read that again!  Okay!   Furthermore, NOT every Jew is an evil global banker!  So let’s stop that non-cents as well.

Look, the reason you need to read this is that we are all being duped into hate, violence, racism and bigotry and it’s  non-sense.  And worse, it’s hurting each and every one of us.

With over 14 million people worldwide who practice Judaism and only about 5 million of those who live in Israel, Judaism and Israel are NOT one in the same. (Judaism Online)

Heck, most  people who practice Judaism that I know won’t even consider moving to Israel. They love where they live.  Israel is NOT their home.  More, most peoples who practice Judaism are NOT even Semites. Their ancestry is European and not from the Middle Eastern cultures.

  • So what is going on here?
  • Why do we have all these things convoluted?
  • Why are we so confused?
  • Who is trying to confuse us?

Stop! Hey! What’s that sound, everybody look what’s going down….

Israel is a country not a religion. This is a fact.

Israel has almost 30% of its population non-Jewish.  Judaism is a religion with deep roots starting in African continent and transcending nation state borders worldwide.  It’s always been a minority religion and remains such worldwide.  Relax!  Oh, and a Semite is a person who comes from the Middle Eastern cultures; namely Arabs, Hebrews, and more… read the wiki definition…...  In other words, a Semite is NOT exclusively a person who practices Judaism.  Get it?  Got it?  Good!

Now, fast forward to our 21st century and some are still trying to sell us a bag of you know what and it’s not cool anymore; especially in the USA where the vast  majority have no clue where Israel is even located, let alone its demographics or political realities.

For example, if one challenges the policy of the nation state of Israel, one is branded an anti-Semite.  Yes, it’s non-sense.  And yes there are millions of  well-intentioned uninformed Americans who buy in to this weird disposition. It’s batshit crazy, I know.  But that’s how powerful the main stream media can be over time when it sells an agenda dominated by a ruling elite who have an interest in perpetuating bigotry, racism, hate, war, and more war.  It’s a game of global money power politics at the highest level with an extreme dose of contempt for humanity.

The nation state of Israel and its assigns go around selling Zionism as if it’s a religion.  They using Judaism and the good people who practice it with full faith and integrity.  And they use every card in the book to further their  agenda including abusing the poor hard working Americans who practice devout Christianity in their churches all the while being told that if they save Israel they will  save themselves.  So they support everything Israel without question creating a cultish disposition.  Can you believe it?  I know, it’s bizarre but it’s also very true.

So these normally kind and giving Christians stand by and donate time and money to a nation state of Israel who brings in Euro-American-Russian settlers to push out, by any means necessary, the indigenous Semites who have been living there for hundreds of years. It’s a trail of tears for the 21st century.  And it’s insane. It’s time to call out the leaders who sell this non-sense and hold them accountable because it’s anti-American, anti-Israeli, and anti-Human!

Look, the real truth for all of us to understand is that we’ve all been duped; Muslims, Christians, Jews and pagans alike.  We’ve been lied to by global leaders with an agenda.  They want us to hate each other in this new 21st Century because they profit from us when we oblige them.

The real truth is that people are people and most all want the same thing.

We all want the freedom to work, live, love, laugh and cry and have our faith.  We want to  share and enjoy our humanity.  We don’t want war, killings and we are sick and tired of being pushed by faux leaders who sell us the garbage of division.

Look, when my mother was young, back in Haifa Palestine, like her, her neighbors were Semitic peoples; one Muslim family, the other a family who practiced Judaism and  her family, Greek orthodox Christians.  And they all got along great. The kids would play in the streets and enjoy one another.

It was the warped 20th century adults that gave in to fear not the kids.  So they infected and imposed their bias on the children who were no match for their  conditioning.  For those peoples, they did NOT have the knowledge we all now have.

Back then, it was easy to hate.  Today, with the information superhighway and the lovely social networks that allow us to talk to our friends in Russia, India, and  more….we all realize that there is no more color, no more bigotry and no more borders that divide us.  We’re all human beings!

But then again, I am talking about the new generation of young peoples.  These young people see the failure that was the 20th century generations and they don’t want  it.  But of course, it’s still forced on these future global humans by these old crusty jerks that sell division and hate.

So when my kids ask me, “Hey day, when will this all end?” sadly I tell them, we have to wait for the old crusties to die off who hold on to power in old crusty  corridors of power.  Then we need to gut their system and replace with it a new one that fits our new paradigm.  And it will happen!

And to all ye haters out there, check it.

Israel will exist and it will be democratic with rights for all people including those who choose to practice any religion. It won’t be Jewish, Christian or Muslim.  It will be a free country.  The demographics will dictate. And Palestine will exist because Palestinians exist.  But they will be friends with their neighbors and the politics of hate will go away because it brought no rewards when the old people ran things.  They failed badly and failure is always shown the door; especially in the light speed socialized global world of this new century.

Memo to Old Crusties:  Give up now because there is no other way…. so why pretend otherwise? If you continue to sell division, you will go down in history as a  complete and utter failure.  You will be an icon for failure and a laughing stock.  So end it now and give yourself a chance at redemption.

Postscript: You can depend on Brother Johnny Punish to call out the haters one by one.  I don’t care what faith they supposedly represent or what country they are from or what color they are.  If they hurt our kids anymore, I will come after them.  Sell positive cooperation and love, and you got a friend.  Sell hate and violence and you get punished by Punish!  I make that commitment and will continue to shine lights on the insane who try to pull a fast one on us the good global peoples.  And I also call on you to join in and be part of this new 21st Century paradigm.  It’s here and our future is written all over it.  It’s calling us and it’s time to answer!

We’re All Human Beings

    Good post JP. The problem is, no matter how we look at it, we can’t avoid the word “JEW” being written and used, in the most natural way: referring to a group of people, who identify themselves as being Jews.

    This said, without any bigotry, to talk about the hijacking of America and its Institutions, anyone who can explain it without using the word Jew or Jewish, RAISE YOUR HAND.

    Nearly 2000 years ago a famous document predicted that one day there would be no cash, no money free of control by the system. We are close now. Most people I know are frightened(!) to carry cash, and so they use debit cards. When the cash is officially gone, people can be “turned off” of the system with a push of a button in the bank. One push of one button, and you will be able to “neither buy nor sell” because you don’t carry the Mark. It’s not even arguable – it’s literally true, and will be run by the banksters.

    quote: “Israel will exist and it will be democratic with rights for all people including those who choose to practice any religion. It won’t be Jewish, Christian or Muslim. It will be a free country. ”

    I strongly disagree and I’m not a hater of Jews or Israel. Zionism is Judaism politicized, it will always be racist because Judaism is racist, Israel is and will always be a racist state for Jews only because if Israel would choose not to be theocratic then there would be no basis for it.

    Zionists claim Palestine as their land based on the Bible, they claim that their faith trumps law, they say their god gave them that piece of real estate. All religious Jews also claim that they are god’s chosen people and they all agree that they are superior in every way to all other peoples, based on that prejudice IDF soldiers shoot Palestinian kids on a regular basis.

    The only way for Israel to be democratic is for Jews to cease and desist their tribal racist prejudices, if they do that then they would have to admit they stole Palestine, they are never going to do that since they are their holding out.

    Prediction, Israel will continue on its current trajectory, police state tactics within and without will continue to get worse, the Zionists will subvert the world ever more until the world has had enough and puts them out of business.

    Israel attacked the USS Liberty, Israel spies on its ally USA, Israel blew up the world trade center and blamed it on Muslims, they are the prime suspects in destroying Japan with the STUXNET virus and tactical nukes, now they are once again prime suspects in the Sandy Hook massacre.

    Sorry, Israel has no right to exist.

      Yukon Jack, it certainly can go the way you described. However, the Zionist Master Plan has NO FUTURE!

      I think over the next 50-100 years, the evolution of religion along with human demographic changes along with 50-100 years on the information superhighways for the new generations, the Zionist Master Plan will be history. In its place will be something completely different, evolved, and morphed.

      I don’t even think all of us living today would recognize it if we were somehow allowed to live to see it. In short, its over! It’s just a matter of time. Their master plan has no future!

    • wolf  January 19, 2013 at 12:47 pm

      And now for something completely different. Zioist headquarters evovled and morped…into fused lumps of glass.

  4. peter  January 18, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    Great stuff johnny. You make a great point about how other intrests are just trying to create more conflict and grief. To confuse and divide. No more though. There are to many that know what’s going on and are becoming more educated. When it comes down to it there are more of “us” than “them”.

    Excellent article. Johnny Punish has distilled things down to basic solutions. The system isn’t working anymore and peace needs to be established through a change of leadership. Thanks for identifying the main problem in this excellent piece. By the way, your music is excellent too.

  6. Mike Kay  January 18, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    You cannot possibly know how much I hope you are right, that the chains and evil that hold us will be cast off. I’ve seen a lot, JP, too much maybe, but your piece here really hit me.

    • Johnny Punish  January 18, 2013 at 10:03 pm

      Mike, the good news is that NO MATTER what anyone says, THE DEMOGRAPHICS are coming and coming fast. It’s a tsunami that cannot and wont’ be stopped. There is JUST NO WAY that Israel can hold on to it’s master plan. Unless they want to NUKE millions of people and they won’t and can’t, Israel will have to change and learn to have a diverse society with many religions, colors, and creeds. There is JUST NO WAY AROUND IT! Everyone knows it too….its’ just that some on the Likud right are holding out like they will live forever when in reality, they will go down in history as icons of failure replaced by a new generation of peoples that will view them as weird psychotic pariahs in the “what the heck where those weirdos thinking….” kind of way.

  7. Terry McKibbin  January 18, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Johnny – Your picture as a featured columnist on this site appears next to that of Gilad Atzmon. Gilad, in my opinion, has written one of the most insightful, in-depth analyses available on the psychology of the the Jewish culture/religion and how “it” affects the politics of Israel, the “Jewish State”, by decree.

    If you’ve not read Gilad’s book, The Wandering Who, (your writing would indicate that you have not – or, perhaps, that you consider it unworthy of influencing your current viewpoint), I would highly recommend that you do so. I would like to hear a person of your emotional devotion to a world of tolerance with Gilad’s intellectual critique of an ideology that is “separatist” at its very core. I would like to know how you can rectify these inconsistencies with your current world-view.

    It is my hope that people of all three Abrahamic religions would continue to distance themselves from the tribal “better than though” teachings that beset each of them, and simply join the human race as a relevant larger family all of whom have the same needs for well-being. That seems to be your message in a nutshell, as well.

    Yet, it remains true that children throughout our world are being taught that to be of this “tribe” or that “tribe” means to be better than everyone else, even having a divine destiny to rule over all other existing “tribes”, if not to annihilate them altogether. This fact about Judaism in particular and Islam and Christianity to, what appears to me, a lesser degree, cannot be ignored when the killing, maiming and wanton destruction is doing nothing but growing in acceptability among the furtive, delusional purveyors of “rights to domination”.

    • Johnny Punish  January 18, 2013 at 5:00 pm

      Gilad is an online colleague and fellow musician. He provides amazing insight, always. I admire his work at the highest level.

      For me, I don’t believe the current level of ignorance and arrogance will survive in the 21st century and thereafter.

      The younger generations have information access now. Once held notions or dogma are being challenge at a dizzying pace now and the most ridiculous of those will not survive the future. The idea of “chosen people” is silly and most people around the world can see it for what it is. It is non-sense. It’s just a matter of time now before the 21st Century swallows this silly notion.

      As for Israel, as a nation state, she simply cannot survive in her current format, The demographics will trump the religious dogma. So she either morphs or she dies on the vine sometime during this century. It’s just a matter of time.

    • DaveE  January 18, 2013 at 6:23 pm

      Once you separate the lie that “the Jews are a race” from the despicable ideology of Judaism, chosen-ness, rituals, special real estate privileges, G_d sanctioned murder, anything goes” if it’s for the Chosen People, pathological lying, usury, all becomes clear.

      The Jews are not a race, they are an ideology. Therefore, calling people who are opposed to that (sick) ideology “racists” does not fly, for anyone smarter than a bagel. It’s a con and a lie, at best.

      The jig’s up. No-one buys their lies anymore. That’s the nature of karma and payback ain’t gonna be pretty, but still entirely deserved.

    • Terry McKibbin  January 19, 2013 at 8:06 pm

      I truly hope that you are correct, Johnny. It never ceases to amaze me, however, the extent to which very smart people buy into the nonsense when there is something there for them to gain – however diabolical the means by which they obtain it. The numbers may be on the the side of sanity, but the resources are not.

      I am of the opinion, still, that our need is to challenge continually and consistently the dogma through voices such as yours, Gilad’s and that of every person whom has a voice of reason. It is this very confrontation of the nonsense that will continue to build the wave until it is the unstoppable tsunami of human reason. Speak, sing, shout and whisper the truth daily to all that will listen!

    Ersatz Semites

    Study: ‘European Jews are not Semite’

    The result of a genetic study published in the British journal Genome Biology and Evolution claims that European Jews (Ashkenazi) don’t belong to the 12 (Semite) tribes of Israel. They’re a mix of genetic ancestries, far more of which than previously thought originating in tribes from the Caucasus – a region that sits between Eastern Europe and Asia Minor. Ashkenazi ancestry comes from Slav, Bulgar, Iranian and Turkic tribes which established the Khazar empire in that region – which at its peak stretched from Kiev in the West to the Aral Sea in the Southeast.

    The study, titled ‘The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses’, was conducted by Dr. Eran Elhaik, a geneticist at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland. Elhaik compared the genomes of 1,287 unrelated individuals who hail from eight Jewish and 74 non-Jewish populations.


    • Johnny Punish  January 18, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      @blackhamilton – the point I make is that I reject anybody who calls me an “anti-Semite” for criticizing the policies of Israel. It’s silly and ignorant at best. At worst, it insults my critic of a nation state that lacks a 21st century intelligent and long term vision that provides good governance for ALL of its’ people.

      I condemn occupation, suicide bombers in Tel Aviv, white phosphorus kills on children in Gaza, hate speech, and all those that perpetrate it through actions and words.

      I support all my friends and brothers who practice Judaism, Christianity, Islam, or any other religion. We are all human beings and all of us are trying to make sense of this dynamic world we live in. Its’ amazing and we ought not condemn those who aim to search for answers through faith.
