1) #antizionism #Israel #JewHate

But thinking about it - it all really comes down to one thing, a conflict that affects all world civilizations.

That is the conflict between personal liberty and control by elites.
2) #personalliberty #elitecontrol
Jews are the ultimate example of a people who refuses to conform, who insists on its right to dissent from the orthodoxy & power of the elites in every era. 3) #Jews #nonconformists
Heck, Jews are the one people in the world whose most important holiday celebrates freedom from the control of another nation, a celebration of nat'l independence... 4) #Jews #Freedom #Passover
& self-determination almost 3400 years before the wave of nations getting independence from colonial powers in the 20th century. 5) #Independence #FreedomFromSlavery #Nationhood
To the elites of the world, dissidents are disruptive, something that needs to be stopped, assimilated, or even exterminated. 6) #elites #dissidents #assimilated #stopped #exterminated
But all progress in this world, politically, technologically, etc. has come not from uniformity, but from the stimulation of diversity. In Europe, the most uniform of times, the time that leads disturbed the system of rule & order, was the Dark Ages,..7) #diversity #DarkAges
& contact with outside influences stimulated an end to that time. Countries that deplore questioning, dissent, diversity, also do not innovate, do not produce great art.
8) #DarkAges #noinnovation #noart
So, let’s look at Israel, the Jewish State. It’s establishment a judgment on the hate & bigotry that kept Jews wandering & a subject nation for almost 2000 years, a place where Jews could be free to redevelop their own culture. 9) #Israel #hatred #bigotry #JewishFreedom
Israel came about soley because of Jewish efforts, with some help by non-Jews who had a sense of loving freedom & a willingness to fight the powers that be,...10) #Israel #Jewishefforts #freedom
but in 1948, the “world community” as a whole, did everything possible short of militarily helping the Arab states, to get Israel to disappear before it had a start. 11) #Israel #Alone #Survival #FoughtAlone #Freedom
& as late as 1973, when Israel was faced with destruction, Europe stood in the way of Israel’s being resupplied, taking the position of “let the Jews die”. 12) #Europe
#Israel #LetTheJewsDie

& now, Israel remains alive & well, though still under threat, its existence still challenging the powerful & still seen by some as being an inconvenient impediment to the world order as dictated by the elites.

& just maybe it is an impediment to them. #Israel #impediment 13)
Because Israel is a statement — that a world of many nations, each independent & free & developing their own cultures is better in every way to a world ruled by the elites who still admit the models of Dictators, Communism, Nazism, even if they call it, something else
#Freedom
Israel’s existence is a model — to other “inconvenient peoples”, like the Igbo of Africa, like the Kurds one the Middle East, Like the Berber Peoples of North Africa who have been living as second class citizens under Arab rule for 1000 years. 15)
#Israel #LightUntoNations
& just maybe a model for the citizens in every country who would like to be treated with respect and have rights and not be manipulated by the elites for the interests of the elites who profit and motivate with lies and fear. 16) #Israel #model #indigenouspeoples #freedom #elites
But for now, I want you to notice something and ask yourself some questions. 17) #Elites #Dictators #Communists #Nazis #SuppressionofFreedom #ResultsInAntisemitism #JewHate #AntiIsrael
Why is it that any movement, political party, etc. historically or today, that protects its power by choosing to suppress free speech, by law or intimidation, that considers the ends justify the means, at some point becomes, or at least tolerates anti-Semitism? 18) #Antisemitism
Look around through history, all the way back to ancient Babylon, & you’ll see the same thing again & again. Diversity & dissent & variety being seen as a threat to the elites class...19) #diversity #dissent #variety #eliteclass
& that [elite] class using all sorts of tactics to maintain their position - & freedom is something they cannot tolerate.

Sorry if this was not written as well as I like. It is just me jotting down some ideas out of frustration." 20)
