Noor al Haqiqa (Michael Lumish)
Every once in awhile an honest anti-Semite drops by to say hello at Israel Thrives. The image to your left is the avatar of one Noor al Haqiqa.
Somehow or other Noor came across a piece that I wrote a little over two years ago entitled, Ryan Bellerose and the Indigenous Question and, lo, these 25 months later she decides to respond in the comments.
Normally it is not a great idea to “punch down” as news media people say, but it this case I feel compelled.
Our friend writes:
Everyone is all worried about this yidiot’s this and that and no one speaks of the total idiocy of the concept that the Jews are comparable to Native Americans.
Wanna buy into the victim myth much? This kid bought that cruddy line hook, line and sinker. He has been talmudicized, poor boy.
Anyone who knows the true story of the creation of Israel and the reason for its existence, recognizes a flaw in the fact that this discussion is even taking place.
It is a diversion from the truth of the matter. The Jews of Israel and their supporters around the world are committing genocide and being allowed to get away with it. THAT is the crux of the matter, not some silly young deluded athlete of limited education and abilities who thinks he “understands” …. someone twanged his “fellow victim” sensibilities and set him loose… meanwhile he should learn REAL history, not what he might have been told in school.
Noor runs a peculiar little radically racist blog called Snippets And Snappits, which is a very cute name for a place wherein she encourages violence against Jews as a matter of “social justice.”
Noor, very clearly, is a hard-line, anti-Jewish racist.
For example, this is an image found on the front page of her blog:
I absolutely love out-and-out racists like Noor because they are honest and, therefore, much easier to deal with than the insidious progressive-left variety who pretend to be anti-racist.
And then there is this:
So, Noor would have the world believe that the Jews, via the State of Israel, are controlling the US government. This is classic stuff, the kind of thing that the Nazis believed. It is the sprinkling of anti-Semitic magical-fairy-confetti that genocidal dreams are conjured from.
Just as the Nazis, in their malevolent hallucinations, believed that the tiny percentage of Jews in Germany (a grand total of 1 percent of the total population) were behind the scenes, nefariously pulling the strings so that Germany lost World War I – the Stab in the Back theory – so Noor seems to believe that the Jewish State of Israel is behind the scenes, nefariously pulling the strings of Washington, D.C. to the detriment of everyone but those subhuman Jews.
In any case, let’s go through Noor’s comment above bit-by-bit and see what we can see.
The comment is divided into four unlovely little paragraphs.
In the first she refers to Ryan Bellerose as a “yidiot.” I have honestly never come across that usage before. It obviously implies “Jewish idiot.” The general nastiness of anti-Semitic anti-Zionists is often hard to fathom. In this case, of course, Bellerose is neither Jewish nor an idiot, but “yidiot” is cute. It conveys racial hatred in a snippity-snappity kind of way.
It makes genocidal hatred toward the Jewish people, and disparagement of our friends, fun!
As for the Jewish people being comparable to Native-Americans, it just means that both are the indigenous people in their respective parts of the world. Just as Bellerose and the Metis stand up for the rights of the indigenous in Canada, so Jewish people stand up for our own indigenous rights in the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people, the Land of Israel.
In the second paragraph she comforts herself with Holocaust denial through the notion of a Jewish “victim myth.”
Two-thousand years of persecutions and expulsions and pogroms and dhimmi status in Arab lands and the Inquisition and the Holocaust and the constant Arab-Muslim hostility and violence and war against the Jews of the Middle East, yet to this compassionate genius it’s all just a myth.
The slaughter of much of my own family by the Nazis during Operation Barbarossa in the town of Medzhybizh, western Ukraine, in the summer and fall of 1942, was apparently also a myth. As Hitler’s troops were marching on the Soviet Union, the Jews of Medzhybizh were crowded into hastily fashioned ghettos, forced to road building, and then once the road building was done they were made to dig trenches, remove themselves into those trenches, and then they were shot-dead by Nazi soldiers.
Fortunately, my grandparents on my father’s side had the foresight to get the hell out of there in-between the wars, but according to those like Noor al Haqiqa my family history was nothing but a myth. Jewish history, in other words, is nothing but a myth, a shadow, conjured by nefarious Jews in order to subjugate the pastoral Arabs who, we are told, want nothing more than to tend their Sacred Olive Groves in peace… even as they send their children out into the streets of Israel with their knives.
In her vague third paragraph she refers to “the true story of the creation of Israel” without giving us the slightest indication of what she means by that, although I feel reasonable certain that whatever it is, it is both false and malicious.
Finally, in her fourth and final paragraph she brings it all home by accusing the Jewish people of committing genocide.
According to our friend Noor, the Holocaust is a myth, but the Jews are committing an actual genocide against the perfectly innocent Arab population.
We tend to get caught up in the fights against BDS or Obama’s strategically moronic empowerment of American and Jewish enemies, such as Iran, or the ongoing construction of hatred toward Jews by the Palestinian-Arab leadership, but every now and again it is not a bad idea to put a spot-light on classic anti-Jewish race hate.
It used to be that Jewish westerners primarily associated violent anti-Semitism with people who tended to have names more like Gunter.
Today anti-Semitism, in its most obvious and forthright forms, tend to come from people with names more like Noor al Haqiqa.
