Historical and fictional half-truths as vehicles to spread old stereotypes
Lengthy, ingenious lists of apologetics should ‘prove’ the US was justified to destroy two major Japanese cities with atomic weapons in 1945.
And although teleporting modern notions of morality into the past is to commit the error of presentism, no judgment of these two bombings is complete without noting that by today’s standard, targeting civilians is a despicable war crime, and no rationale can justify it. Just like the slave trade was normalized 400 years ago, but was a crime against humanity.
And, by the way, while the bombings may have helped to stop a brutal war, they have also helped prevent Japan, unlike Germany, but much like Poland, to repent its vicious behavior in the first half of the 20th Century. It’s like slapping a violent child. It will cry for being smacked, victimized, but not rethink having been aggressive himself. The Japanese even identify with Israel, a small People that arose despite being massacred. Yet, in Asia, by all accounts, Japan was a vile aggressor, not a victim.
Jews Developing Nukes
Having settled that, now we can all see how immoral the two bombings were, let us look at how they came about.
A disproportionate number of Jews have worked on the US getting nuclear weapons. Just presenting this truth, though, gives the wrong, but o so familiar impression that Jews distribute death and evil.
What is the fuller truth?
Jewish scientists fled Hitler. He had only derision for ‘Jewish science.’
The Allied Forces feared that Hitler was developing a nuclear arsenal to conquer the whole world. Ex-European, Jewish scientists were eager to help the Allies win this race. Heisenberg, without Jews to correct him, secretly advised Hitler against nuclear weapons. He was convinced they would spark a chain reaction that would explode all of Earth. Europe’s Jewish brain drain so helped the Allies win on both sides of the Pond.
Numerous European Jews so ended up developing the first nuclear weaponry for the US, like Albert Einstein, Hans Bethe, John von Neumann, Leo Szilard, James Franck, Edward Teller, Rudolf Peierls, Klaus Fuchs, (not Enrico Fermi, but his wife Laura was Jewish), Joseph Rotblat, Niels Bohr, Stanislaw Ulam, Lilli Hornig, Dieter Gruen, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Edward Teller, Eugene Wigner, Leo Szilard, Richard Feynman, Victor Weisskopf, Robert Serber, George Placzek, James Chadwick, Charlotte Serber, Jay Wechsler, Max Born, James Franck, Otto Frisch, Isadore Rabi, Eugene Rabinowitz, Leó Spitz, Theodore Von Karman, George de Hevesy, Michael Polyani, and Emilio Segre. None of them were practicing Jews, all were assimilated, and many were only Jews in Hitler’s eyes, not their own.
These secular Jews did not gravitate to making weapons. They were all in it to stop Hitler from conquering all of the free world (and murdering them).
After the bomb was created, many of them quickly became lifelong peace activists: Einstein, Oppenheimer, Bohr, Fermi, Franck, and Wigner.
That is the complete picture.
The JPost, a former newspaper, now a loose collection of articles without much editorial supervision, had no problem publishing a story by Reuters simply stating: “Oppenheimer had no qualms about displacing people from their homelands.” As if Oppenheimer personally and on his own decided, in 1942, to build the lab that would create the world’s first atomic bombs, and force 32 Hispano families off their property, bulldoze their homes, shoot or let free their livestock, and give them little or no compensation, or at least at a significantly lower rate than white property owners.
The Jew as the enemy of humanity and the regular person.
Beware of having Jews portrayed as savers of humanity through nuclear weapons. From that over-simplified but relatively benign picture it’s a tiny step to Jews won’t hesitate to kill all of humanity for their own profit.
