    A Gentile's Views on Anti-Semitism
    by John Rudolph
    Nov 11, '03

    Being a non-Jew, or Gentile, I have been making some observations lately over the past few months, and have observed something terribly odd.

    I go into the news groups in Yahoo!, and all I see are Jews being blamed for nearly everything that is wrong on the planet. Jews are being accused of running the media and telling us only what they want to hear. Jews are being blamed of the situation over in the Middle East, even though Israel takes up only 0.01% of the total land mass of the Middle East. Jews are being blamed for just about everything - and it is getting worse.

    Charlottesville, Virginia, is the most liberal leftist town in the state. Thanks to the University of Virginia population, with its pious, overbearing professors and staff that feel they are smarter than thou, it's common to see Birkenstock-wearing, Howard-Dean-for-President-bumber-sticker-toting, Volvo-station-wagon-driving, self-righteous, Berkeley-ite, hippie leftists and their larger-than-normal lesbian population take up the majority of the population of this seedy and extremely snobby liberal town, and more so, it's common to find them shopping in places like Foods of All Nations or Whole Foods, looking for their tofu, strange looking vegetables that I wouldn't even allow my cat to eat, bobbles and bangles, and their precious rice cakes.

    Welcome to my little part of the world, where nearly all of them are in this form, and nearly all of them have nothing nice to say about Israel or Jews in general. I come out against those who criticize Jewry - some of them even claim the Holocaust never happened - but let the historical facts speak the truth.

    Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda, is quoted as saying, "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." This is what is happening, and it's odd to see that the liberal Left and America's ignorant are the "sheep" who are falling for this sudden torrent of anti-Semitism that is sweeping the country en masse. Sadly, they, in turn, become anti-Semitic themselves, because they feel that this is the way to go.

    Being anti-Semitic is just about as cool as being a lesbian.

    If we were to take an analytical study of the US population who are falling for the lies about Jews, we'd come to find that most of them are lacking an important part of their education, which is called geography, basic social studies, and the knowledge of countries and what they provide to the world. It's sad to see someone posting something anti-Semitic in the Yahoo! news boards when they probably couldn't even find Israel on a world map - even one that is labeled. It's sad to realize that a lot of them are college graduates, while the rest of them are sons of redneck farmers, who lack the moral fortitude to even know how to construct a basic sentence, or who have never been on board a plane to go somewhere and learn about that place.

    It's sad to read something written by a certain Stalinist and anti-Semitic Charlotte Kates, the organizer of Rutger University's pro-terrorist Hate Fest – claiming that Israel is an apartheid state – when she herself has probably never even been to the Middle East to obtain firsthand view of what Israel is really like. It's shameful and disgusting to know that someone of her caliber could ever write something so inciteful against a people who have never done anything wrong or brought any personal harm to her. It is bitterly sad that Charlotte Kates is probably just as ignorant as one of those who most likely couldn't even find Israel on the map.

    And this is why we have to come together as a nation to begin questioning the authenticity or validity of the education of these anti-Semitic college-degree-toting people who make up the college graduates of America. Their hateful comments are irresponsible, because thousands of people will read what Charlotte Kates wrote about Israel and might automatically deduct that this is the truth, just because it was written by an "educated" pundit.

    And that brings me to another point. The gullibility factor of the common American is extremely high, and I blame that on a serious lack of education or the will to learn something new.

    In conclusion, it's the ignorant and uneducated who are spreading inciteful words about Jews and Israel. It angers me to hear a college graduate come out against Jewry, for they know nothing of what they are talking about, let alone most likely haven't even been abroad.

    I therefore question each and every anti-Semitic college graduate in America today: Have you even been to Israel to see what it is like? Why comment on something that you know nothing about? If you're not in the know about Jews or Israel, then steer clear of making inciteful and hateful comments, for your hateful comments are about as worthless as the college degree that you hang so proudly on your wall.

    Just the other day, my Jewish friend asked me why is it that people hate Jews so much? For now, all I can say is that it is the majorly ignorant who are doing this. We need to include the self-proclaimed "educated" in this mass of ignorant and uneducated people who hate Jews and Israel. They so badly need to go back to school. This time, they need to stay awake.
