Roberto Rachewsky
In defense of Liberty and Individual Rights - Writer and Speaker

Persona non grata

I took note of this forgotten pearl, kept in the limits of ignorance, because a friend warned me of its existence. How can something so rich fall into oblivion? Actually, there are truths that end up being buried with time because it is not in the interest of some that they remain in evidence.

Even the most exalted intellectuals have their infamous side. Unmasking them, can create a domino effect that overthrows false theses and narratives, constructed by simple prejudice. In the present case, by pure and agnoxious antisemitism.

What has served the great historian Arnold Toynbee, can serve the president of Brazil, the great appetizer Luís Inácio Lula da Silva, to face the reality, to be struck by the facts, to have to hear the truth drawn with the help of the correct language and the good use of logic.

Toynbee made, in 1961, the same accusation that Lula made half a century later: “Israel acted like the Nazis, killing Palestinians, referring respectively to the wars of 1948/49 and now in 2023/24. Herzog, a young Jewish diplomat and lawyer, son of a rabbi, said, using Toynbee’s own work, all countries, including England and the United States (also Brazil) massacred populations in wars in which they engaged in legitimate defence or to conquer territory. Why does the accusation of acting like the Nazis always fall only when it comes to the State of Israel fighting for its existence? It’s logical, anti-Semitism.

No one wants the existence of a Nazi state like Germany. Qualify Israel as such, and its extinction will be justified, so desired by the anti-Zionists who are nothing more than genocidal anti-Semites.

Wars are terrible, massacres are inevitable, especially when the provocateurr does not care to use his own population as a shield of defense, betting on the morality of the opponent, and then exposing dead children as propaganda pamphlets.

Israel kills yes, kills because if it does not do so it will be defeated and extinct, leaving the Jews to the mercy of the anti-Semites who appear when a lot is kicked.

Lula da Silva, president of Brazil exudes antisemitism and deserves to be considered as someone whose presence on Israeli soil is undesirable.
