Is it Really Israel’s New Racism?


by Gilad Atzmon  


This must-see short documentary by David Sheen and Max Blumenthal is about the appalling treatment of African migrants in Israel.

The film reveals a most ugly manifestation of Jewish ethnocentrism, exclusivism and bigotry, but you may notice that none of the Israeli racists in the film identifies as a ‘Zionist’ or showed any concern for the Zionist nature of Israel. Instead they, and without exception, express their deep concern with the ‘Jewish State’ its ‘Jewish character’ and matters pertaining to the Jewish religion and Jewish ‘purity’.

We see MK Ben Ari on camera saying “We are not an immigration State,.. our state is different – it is a Jewish State.. for me the Jewish people are precious…this is our only Jewish state”, and PM Benjamin Netanyahu speaks about demographic fears and the ‘Jewish character’ of Israel.

For over a decade now, I have been suggesting that Israeli racism is driven by Jewish supremacism rather than any Zionist ideology. I have argued that Zionism, largely, a foreign notion to most Israelis, is just one symptom of Jewish exclusivism – and for saying it, I have been denounced, harassed and smeared by most Jewish Left organisations and even a few Palestinians. But this documentary actually proves that, all along, I was right. For the Israeli, Jewishness rather than Zionism, is the guiding political signifier. This film is not about Zionist abuse or Israeli ‘new racism’, it is actually about Goy-hatred that is intrinsic to the Jewish political discourse.

So here are some questions that demand immediate attention:

For many years we have been hearing about the heroic Jewish involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, we have also learned (from Jewish progressives) about Jewish ‘caring for the Other’, for ‘justice’ and for ‘equality’. How then, do we explain the clear discrepancy between the clear racism of the Jewish state and this Jewish ethical impulse? Furthermore, how can we explain the fact that Jewish Diaspora political institutions are amongst the leading advocates of pro-immigration policies yet, Israel. as MK Ben Ari states, is “not an immigration state” –  it is actually an anti-immigration apparatus.

Here, we detect a clear discrepancy between the Jewish Diaspora phantasmic, progressive mantra which attributes humanist and universal ethics to Jewish politics, and the reality of the Jewish state that is, itself, racist to the bone.

It is understandable that Max Blumenthal, David Sheen and many Jewish Left persons and organisations are devastated by the scale of ‘new’ racism in Israel. But I ask myself, how would progressive Jews-only organisations such as JVP or IJAN react to 100.000 Sudanese attempting to join their ranks. Would they accept them? I think we all know the answer to that.

If Jews want to really oppose racism, they may want to consider cleansing their own political culture of any trace of exclusivism. But my guess is that, by the time they get round to this, they won’t be Jews anymore – they would have become ordinary people, they might even accomplish the early Zionist dream and become people like all other people.

Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.

Atzmon's album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called "surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz." His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a "devoted political artist." He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as "one of London's finest saxophonists" stated: "It is Atzmon's blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read."

His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at


  1. The hard-earned money of American tax payers (including African-Americans) sponsors these hateful crimes! First they displace people through wars for Israel and then they fund Israel while it brutalises the displaced for seeking asylum. The land must be just about ready to vomit them all out! It’s already retching.

  2. “… we have also learned (from Jewish progressives) about Jewish ‘caring for the Other’, for ‘justice’ and for ‘equality’.”

    Ask them to show you the free soup kitchens for the needy; free Jewish soup kitchens for the needy and homeless in every street in competition with the soup kitchchens of the Salvation Army.

  3. Gilad – this jewish supremacism is extremely offensive to all those of us who have been lectured to for many years by jewish ‘intellectuals’ about ‘race awareness’; ‘hate crimes’; ‘oppression’ and such like. It would seem that what is sauce for the goose is NOT sauce for the gander. The legal systems of European countries and America have been literally turned upside down to accommodate their demands in the name of ‘egalitarianism’ – along with every other conceivable ‘ISM’.

    I recall a short article which you wrote some time ago about an israeli airforce pilot – who was complaining about senior officers like himself having to share his accommodation block with common ruffians and rough ‘working class’ type fellows that were always fighting and swearing.

    That article took my breath away! jewish marxist ‘intellectuals’ have been admonishing us in Britain for at least a century about the evils of the CLASS SYSTEM and the inequalities of rank and social standing. It now seems that in the short period that the israeli entity has existed – they aim to be the worst of the lot in this area!

    Or is it that they were ALWAYS just promoting society destroying SUBVERSION in every country they went to – in the knowledge that the breaking down of the local customs and healthy natural culture would benefit them ultimately? Either way – they are clearly not going to inflict the same inconvenient rules on themselves.

    • I think that the meaning of it is simple,,, we have to stand up and to look with a magnifying glass into every and each Jewish political call… We have to examine their funding network..we have to search for the tribal interests…. the party is over… people out there start to connect the dots …

    • Agreed Gilad – which sadly brings us back to the way our forefathers felt that they had to deal with this eternal problem – namely their exclusion from important areas of public life which are vulnerable to being corrupted or manipulated to nefarious ends. (Note how their own ‘inclusion’ legislation would criminalize this sensible idea! Each time they establish subversion by deception they then enshrine it into law so that a later generation is unable to easily correct it).

      The only answer is to remove large parts of the ruling establishment – and repeal all legislation at least back to before Second World War. Thereafter we can start again.

  4. One rule for the master race and another for the goy.

    Oddly enough her Majesty’s Jewish Government of EU collaborators have deliberatly engineered mass immigration into the UK, walking through my town as I pass the shuttered shops & closed businesses now feels like being abroad so many foreign tounges are to be heard.

    Former FG Attorney General, EU Commissioner, and Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, Peter Sutherland EU should ‘undermine national homogeneity’ says UN migration chief.

    Sutherland and his comrades are clearly our enemy along with appeasers such as Cameron,Blair, Hague and the Milibands.

  5. The jews of the world have the image of being chaos merchants. This is a perfect example. I lived in Eritrea for two years, give me them as neighbors over ultra racist jews.
