Since the inception of this blog in May 2004, we have maintained that anti-Zionism is camouflage for Jew-hatred.
During World War II six million Jews were systematically murdered by Germans and their European collaborators. After the war, in a flicker of shame, European Jew-hatred went into a brief eclipse.
But Europe has returned to its ignoble roots.
Jew-hatred, in the form of fashionable leftist anti-Zionism, allows Europeans to vent their intolerance all in the name of eliminationist jihad, which has morphed into an intellectual liberal pursuit.
Of the vast differences between the democratic American revolution and the monarchal French revolution Alexis de Tocqueville observed that France gave far too much cultural weight to intellectuals. America, on the other hand, relied on practical men.
Of course it was intellectuals who wrote the Nuremberg laws. In German universities intellectuals were quick to expel Jewish professors and Jewish students. And intellectuals flocked to join the Nazi party with greater alacrity than thugs and criminals. All across Europe, intellectuals instituted anti-Jewish boycotts and other legal measures which smoothly paved the way for mass murder.
Today, European intellectuals in the BDS movement, hand in hand with genocidal-yearning Muslims, have like dogs, returned to lick up their own vomit.
