"Negation of the Diaspora" - A Theory under Zionism

Reader comment on item: About Those Billboards in Israel ...

Submitted by Robert (United States), Nov 8, 2022 at 14:15

Unfortunately, I never read the 1993 essay "Clash of Civilizations" by Samuel P. Huntington - until last night!

Before last night I was under the mistaken impression that Huntington's thesis involved only Islam. Instead, I now understand that it is he who formulate the thesis behind Civilizationism. So now I have been converted and dub myself a Huntingtonian (not to be confused with the Calvinist and his thesis).

Now I understand that Israel is a Civilization State, and all that this entails, among which is the national ideology of Zionism which is rooted both in the Jewish Religion and the Haskala (enlightenment); by the latter I see an analogy with what had happened to Christian Western Europe during its concurrent Enlightenment.

That leads me to the Zionist notion of "Negation of the Diaspora." Only in Israel is a Jew capable in living fully as a Jew. Outside Israel, Jews will always be victims of Antisemitism - because they will always move to the Left and to Liberalism, thereby alienation the Conservatives ot Legacy cohorts.

Make American Great Again" appears like a populist slogan invented by Trump. But that is not accurate. 1in the 1960's, it was White America... Today, we have Black Lives Matter. This entails Victimhood and that America's greats is founded on Slavery and Racism, for which Reparations have not yet been paid. Where does this put the Jew in the USA? His support of Blacks is marginalized. He never can do enough when he or she is in the Democratic Party. And when he's wealthy and in the Republican Party its because he or she behaves immorally as described in the "handbook," "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion."

A Jew who does not live in Israel but in the United States has no business opposing the policies of the democratic Jewish State of Israel. A Jew (Citizen) in the United States has an obligation to uphold all that's good about (North, below Canada) America. So today I voted Republican (Party) in Manhattan. I support a woman's right to choose, and I am tolerant of gays (homosexuals of all types). So I am basically a Liberal. But unfortunately, in our system, we are only given 2 choice: Democrat or Republican. And when Trump runs for office again (President) I will most like vote for him.

Today, "Black," as well as "White," are un-American Racist terms. Even "Racist" is a Racist term. I subscribe to the original meaning of "race," which was a pseudo-scientific notion. Biologically, there are no Races. So the social meaning of "race" is itself racist. There was a regression or revision ... in the 1960's this population identified itself as African American - now it's back to being Black. As Jews flock to build up Israel, I see now similar phenomena regarding the dozen or so West African countries (states). All of sub-Sahara Africa is "black" if skin color is the distinguishing factor - but it is not. So I coined a term (yesterday): "Afromerican." It is simply meant to replace "black." Instead of wallowing in the victimhood of Slavery and Racism, I challenge my Afromerican fellow citizens to connect with the religion, culture, economy, politics, etc., of their ancestors in Africa and win that continent over to closeness to the American West (pun intended). Otherwise, either the Chinese-Confucian, or Indian-Hindu Civilizations will dominate that continent, and not likely for Africa;s benefit. In brief, because of "internalized racism," Blacks are not Americans, they see themselves (culturally) primarily as victims. That is not the case with Obama or Candace Owens, or Justice Thomas of the Supreme Court.

It is in this context that Israel needs to adopt policies of Victory. And I look forward to see how Bibi will form a right wing government to accomplish such Victory for Israel against the Antisemitic majority world. It is Antisemitic because it distorts history. As the Holocaust ended in 1945, the German state funds the Palestinian blaming Israel for the 1948 Nakba. What about the German "nakba" when millions them were deported for their Nazi atrocities/ And what about the Jews expelled or forced to leave other parts of the Christian and Muslim world?

I see the Civilization parties of Europe as asserting the European Civilization State of the European West in the European Union. In the case of Israel, it is a Jewish Civilization State in Jordan Palestine Syria Iraq, Gaza, etc. These concepts are to be understood in the context of the thesis expounded so very well by Samuel P. Huntington in his 1993 essay, "Clash of Civilizations?." It was his anticipation of the consequences of the End of the Cold War (between the Soviet Union and the West led by the United States). Huntington denied "The End of History," a prior thesis of a colleague.
