Haaretz exposes its anti-Jewish stand for all to see

The French president has given an unprecedented clear-cut national speech, point for point reject the country’s role in collaboration with executing the Holocaust and colluding with modern anti-Semitism.

Israel’s anti-Israel newspaper Haaretz, that always puts so much intellectually interesting and politically manipulative reporting in its paper and on its website, has now openly declared as reaction, that anti-Zionism is not a pupation, a reinvention of good old anti-Semitism. Rather, Zionism, a Jewish State, is fundamentally wrong, the sum total of racism and imperialism — if the Arutz Sheva report is true. Finally they admit.

Every Nation is entitled to its own country — but the Jews. That smacks after Racism, if you ask me; and Arab imperialism.

If I had it my way, such a press company would be outlawed and closed. Spreading hatred cannot be part of Freedom of Expression and Freedom of the Press. Pleas for rights for underdogs cannot justify attacks on rights for Jews. (The old anti-Jewish ploy to set up everyone’s well-being against safety for the Jews.) Anti-democratic institution should not be tolerated by democracy; Nazi, Racist, Anti-Jewish, Marxist, Anarchist, all alike.

But I’m not in charge. They’ll continue. Democracy gone bunkers.

They will continue as before, disseminating hatred. Kein besserer Hass als Selbsthass – no better hatred than self-hate. It’s in the Three Weeks. Great that Haaretz contributes to the program of cutting down on baseless hatred between Jews – but not.

And for those who say that if I’m for love for all Jews, I should love them? I loved them – to be silenced. (Only in legal ways. Without that stipulation, I’ll be accused of incitement. The world upside-down.)

As the Rabbis teach us (Midrash Rabbah, Ecclesiastes 7:16 on I Samuel 15:9 versus 22:19; compare Midrash Tanchuma, Weekly Portion Metzorah, 1; Midrash Yalkut Shimoni, I Samuel, Chapter 121), being nice to the brutal ends in being brutal to the nice.

Jews don’t turn the other cheek; they must twirl the cheeky.

Foreigners: beware of Haaretz’s agenda and bias (to put it politely). Subscribers: end your subscription. You don’t want to be an accessory.


About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
