The “Rabbi” and the Wizz


Tuvia_Tenenbom

Re-posted from author’s site, Zionist Conspiracy

1. Try to imagine how you would react if you saw a “scoop” on the web site run by white supremacists in Alabama claiming that the Ku Klux Klan was in fact being secretly run and commanded by Rev Al Sharpton or Barack Obama’s daughter. Would you laugh yourself silly?

Well a claim a hundred times sillier is currently making the rounds on all the Bash-Israel web sites, claiming that ISIS is in fact run by the Israeli Mossad. The anti-Semites even claim to know the name of the Israeli agent running ISIS.

The fabrication seems to have been invented by the web site of a Neo-Nazi organization calling itself “Veterans Today.” The “scoop” appears here: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/08/04/french-report-isil-leader-mossad/. It goes without saying that these people are not veterans at all. This is a conspiracist group that finds Zionist agents under every bed and inside every coca cola machine. It is wackier than the 9-11 Troofer kooks. The group has long been listed by the Anti-Defamation League as a Neo-Nazi group.

“Veterans Today” insists the Jews themselves planned the Holocaust and are currently incubating a new Hitler inside America. It has also long tried to capitalize on the old story of the accidental Israeli firing on the USS Liberty navy ship in the middle of the Six Day War (see http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/06/07/alan-hart-israels-attack-on-the-uss-liberty-the-full-story/ ). Indeed, that seems to be the origin of the group’s name. They pretend to be navy vets who had been on that ship. As Neo-Nazis they have no problems with any of the countless Muslim attacks on the US over the past 60 years, and the only “attack” on the US military that interests them is that incident with the USS Liberty. (The truth about the Liberty incident can be read here: http://archive.adl.org/israel/uss.html#.VALtzDKSzK0 and http://inyourface.info/ArT/Alpha/UsL.shtml ). The Liberty incident remains the favorite bugaboo of the Neo-Nazis and their jihadi allies.

The Neo-Nazis are claiming that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a head of ISIS, is in fact a Mossad agent named Elliot Shimon. There actually is an Elliot Shimon, but he teaches English lit at my university (Haifa). Meanwhile, you will find the accusation that the Mossad set up and is running ISIS on every anti-Semitic Bash-Israel and pro-Jihad web site.

2. Geezers my age may recall a popular book from the 60s titled “Black Like Me,” about a white journalist who posed as a black man in the South and wrote about his experiences. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Like_Me ). Well, one of the more amusing developments in recent Israeli history consists of a somewhat similar book, titled “Catch the Jew,” written by journalist and play writer Tuvia Tenenbom. He is well known as the founder of the Jewish Theater in New York (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuvia_Tenenbom).

In his new book, the multi-lingual Tenenbom toured the West Bank while passing himself off as a German investigative reporter. He spent time with the various leftwing Israeli and foreign agitators in the West Bank and asked them to educate him about the plight of the “Palestinians.” He turned the results into a book. It is hilarious and at the same time highly revealing of the sorts of propagandists operating to undermine Israel and provide disinformation to the media. A chapter of his new book is reprinted in this past weekend’s Makor Rishon.

Much of the chapter deals with Tenenbom’s meetings and travels about the West Bank with “Rabbi” Arik Ascherman, head of the misnamed “Rabbis for Human Rights,” a far-leftist anti-Israel propaganda NGO. Ascherman has “ordination” from the Reform synagogue “seminary” in Cincinnati and his wife also claims to be “ordained.” In other words, both are Rabbis in the same sense as I am a ballet dancer.

  1. they are really jealous ,jews are sucessfull and we are alive in the other hand their leader is a dead man that rat hitler

  2. I have met a Jew who told me the same thing. Does that make him a Jewish neo nazi? Funny thing is, even I as a Muslim have a hard time believing that. Strange world we live in.

    Don’t you realize that the Jews control everyone and everything and the Rothschild wealth is $500 trillion now?

  5. What a crock-and some people will actually believe it.

  6. Where do they get this BS ?? No Jew would valudate beheadings ! The Torah would prohibit treatment like this

  7. I'm sure everyone has heard the joke that the problem w/ Judaism is Jews. Unfortunately, Jews ourselves can be some of the worst Antisemites & Israel Bashers. We are for sure a stiff-necked people!!

  8. Please don’t make me laugh the bathroom’s too far away

  9. Oh sure. I was at his bar mitzvah in Miami when we were kids :-)

  10. Joyce Myers says:

    are the Neo Nazi nucking futts

  11. Oren Meldung says:

    I’d love for it to be true… let them do our bidding and clean up all the terrorists but I find this conspiracy theory extremely hard to believe lol. I find it just as hard to believe as the rothchild theory, blood libel, 9/11 and other ridiculous conspiracies against Israel and Jews.

  12. Sorry, but beheadings were a valid punishment. If someone can show me otherwise, great!

  13. More likely Abu Bakr al-*Gaghdadi is the Grand Dragon of Louisiana, daughter of a mulatto voodoo queen with a sex change. The name refers to a problem with her/his gag reflex and her/his illegitimate father Sigmund.

  14. Thou shalt not kill !

  15. Robert Smith says:

    a very angry jewish man! no different than the new world order, leader who is coming!

  16. How did the come about that fact?

  17. No they weren’t. Where’d you get that from? If you’re not joking, provide a source.

  18. Next minute those Nazi nutters will tell you that the Pope is a Shiite…

  19. JoyAnn Ru says:

    Hint: If you're going to write to an American audience, please don't denigrate a Reform (Ascherman) OR Conservative (his wife) rabbi by placing both "Reform" and "rabbi" in quotes. RHR is hardly far-left as far as Americans are concerned – it's on par with about 70% of American Jews' political leanings. You know that the Reform and Conservative movements make up the majority of Jews in America who belong to a movement, right?
