One should not forget the phenomenon of Jewish Self-Hatred, in understanding Thomas Friedman (nominally Jewish), the editorial policies of the New York Times (owned by nominal Jews), and the behavior of many nominally Jewish liberals and leftists who disparage or condemn Israel.

In its most extreme manifestations such individuals actively work to undermine Israel or like Noam Chomsky may even qualify as out and out antisemites. (Many non-Jews, as well as Jews seem completely clueless about Jewish Self-Hatred.)

Jewish self-hatred also needs to be taken into account to understand the behaviors of much of the 'leadership' of successive Israeli governments and of a large portion of Israeli academic and media leftists.

Many years ago psychologist Kurt Lewin described Jewish self-hatred thusly:

"...both a group phenomenon and an individual phenomenon...the self-hatred of a Jew may be directed against the Jews, against his own family, or against himself. It may be directed against Jewish institutions, Jewish mannerisms, Jewish language, or Jewish ideals...the most dangerous forms, are a kind of indirect undercover self-hatred...In most cases, expressions of hatred of the Jew against his fellow Jew or against himself as a Jew is more subtle."

As Janice L. Booker wrote in her book The Jewish American Princess and Other Myths: The Many Faces of Self-Hatred:
"Anti-Semitism is not relegated to non-Jews. Jews, too, can be anti-Semitic, and when they are, what surfaces is a latent insecurity that arises from the humiliation of centuries of oppression. "

Hi, what you wrote is a myth but it's not true.

I suggest that the lack of ogartue is either because of general ignorance on the part of Americans or systematic lying by Israel's supporters. The Jewish-only settlements in the West Bank are illegal under international law (the Fourth Geneva Convention, for example) -- not to mention under any reasonable objective moral code. Taking people's property, whether under cover of war or not, is wrong. The 1967 war was , whose leaders at the time acknowledged there was no threat of an Arab attack. So much for the self-defense claim. Moreover, Palestinian landowners should not be punished for what the king of Jordan did. Follow the links provided in the posts below for details. Mr. Renzulli's citation of the 1922 Mandate for Palestine can't be serious. Why would a British act of imperialism count in the matter? The rights of the people of Palestine were ignored by the British from the start. Really, Mr. Renzulli, you'll have to do better than that.Those interested in the truth, and not propaganda, should read Jeremy Hammond's brief yet thorough .Mr. Renzulli's attempt to discredit the photograph fails, as anyone who follows his link will see. Is he denying that Palestinians are being thrown off their land and otherwise oppressed by the Israelis? In urge readers to do some reading and make up their own minds. In sorting out the truth, one would do well to listen to David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister: "Why should the Arabs make peace? If I was an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country.... We have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?"Am I anti-Israel? I am against forcibly establishing a society/country/government on other people's property. I am against its making war on its neighbors and subjugating people in the conquered territory. That the government of this society systematically discriminates against its non-Jewish "citizens" (and even against some Jews) only adds insult to injury.

Centuries of being dominated by a legrar more powerful neighbour will get under your skin. These days it's more just a case of we **** them because we always have done. It doesn't effect day to day life. I'm English and my girlfriend is Irish. There are only a few people who have a genuine hatred for an entire population they've never met.
