Zionism is Nothing but a Terrible, Incurable Disease of the Mind'
MEMRI ^ | 9-7-10 | Zaid Nabulsi

Posted on 09/07/2010 5:17:02 AM PDT by SJackson

Op-Ed in Saudi Arab News: 'There You Have It, Ladies And Gentlemen… Zionism is Nothing but a Terrible, Incurable Disease of the Mind'

In an August 23, 2010 op-ed in the Saudi daily Arab News, titled 'A Terrible Disease of the Mind', Zaid Nabulsi, whom the paper says is an attorney who worked for years for the United Nations in Geneva, stated that not even "a single credible Jewish teapot or tablespoon" has ever been found by "Zionist archeologists" in Israel. The article referenced Israeli professor Shlomo Sand in claiming that there is no genetic connection between modern Jews and Biblical Jews, and compared Jewish marriage law to the Nuremburg Laws, saying that "Adolf Hitler is turning in his grave."

The following is his article, in the original English.

I Would Have To Be "a Certified Lunatic" to Want to Return to Andalusia… "The Monuments and Arab Names I Am Referring To [in Spain] Do Actually Exist..." Unlike Jewish Artifacts in Israel

"My family and I long to return to the Gardens of Cordoba (Qurtuba). We agonize with every breath to reinhabit the castles of Seville (Ishbeelyah). In our veins, there runs an eternal longing to walk again in the footsteps of our forefathers in Zaragoza (Saraqusta). We yearn to once again cultivate the orchards of Valladolid (Balad Al-Waleed). We shall strive, by military means if necessary, to see the blessed day when we can tread along the rose-scented pathways of the splendid palace of Al Hambra (Al Hamra'a) in Granada (Ghirnata).

"Every stone and every particle of sand in that Iberian holy land belongs to me and to my people, exclusively. No Spaniard terrorist has the right to obstruct the will of God and deny my family the legal title to the land of our ancestors. It is God who had given us Andalucía (Al-Andalus), and it is God who promised us that we, the exiles, shall ingather in it once again.

"I would indeed have to be a certified lunatic if I had meant a word of the above. Yet, the only difference between my disease of the mind and that of the millions of Jews who claimed to have 'returned' to Palestine, is that in my case, at least the monuments and Arab names I am referring to are real and do actually exist today, and it is not contestable that the direct ancestors of my people did actually build that great civilization.

"On the other hand, all Zionist archaeologists have failed – after digging up every conceivable corner of Palestine for the last 62 years – to come up with a single credible Jewish teapot or tablespoon, let alone excavate an alleged Jewish temple remotely matching the grandeur of any of the visible relics of Andalucía."

"No Israeli Historian has been Able to Debate – Let Alone Refute – any of [Shlomo] Sand's Devastating Findings" That Today's Jews Are Not Descended From Biblical Jews

"Not only that, but they needn't have bothered digging. Two years ago, Israeli professor Shlomo Sand argued, with meticulous scholarship in his earth-shattering book, 'The Invention of the Jewish People,' that the claim that the Jews of today are the ethnic offspring of the Biblical Jews is yet another Zionist myth, because all records tell us that the current Jews are the descendants of Khazar tribes who converted to Judaism, and have no genetic link whatsoever to the Jews who lived in Palestine during Roman times. The latter, he concludes, are, most ironically, none other than the Palestinians of today who converted to Islam (or Christianity), because the Romans apparently never exiled anybody. Moreover, Sand demolishes the myth of the Kingdoms of David and Solomon by proving they are pure legends that never existed. What is astonishing is that, to date, no Israeli historian has been able to debate – let alone refute – any of Sand's devastating findings.

"Yet, not only would I need to be in a straitjacket if I was serious about reclaiming Spain for the Arabs – irrespective of our real history there – but the Spanish people would have the right to laugh at the sheer absurdity of my hallucinations, if not get gravely offended by their audacity.

"I cannot, for example, visit the magnificent Hall of Abencerrajes (Ibn Sarraj) in Alhambra and then, after explaining to my children that it was Muslim Arabs who constructed these wondrous architectural miracles, go on and indoctrinate them that this piece of real estate should belong to them. I cannot do that any more than an Italian tourist can visit Jerash in Jordan, and thereafter decide to build a settlement and live there because, he says, it really belongs to his great uncle, a certain Mr. Julius Caesar."

"In This Modern World, We Do Not Go Around Stealing Other People's Land By Attributing Our Crime To An Ancient Historical Link To Such Land... So Why Do These Zionists Get Away With Such a Ludicrous Monstrosity?"

"This is the case simply because, in this modern world, we do not go around stealing other people's land by attributing our crime to an ancient historical link to such land, or because we believe that we belong to the same race or religion of the people who once lived there.

"But the Zionists get away with it the whole time, and have been doing so for far too long – despite the total lack of any real historical connection to the land of Palestine (not that it matters or makes it any more legitimate if they did have such pre-historic connection).

"For who, in their heart of hearts, can credibly deny the blatant repugnancy of the whole underlying premise of Zionism, the very madness upon which Israel was founded? Indeed, any person who happens to support the immorality of the theft of the land of Palestine under such religious or forged historical pretexts would in reality be making up excuses for blatant colonization that are far more ridiculous than my demented ranting about returning to the gardens of Cordoba.

"So why do these Zionists get away with such a ludicrous monstrosity?

The Jewish "Hegemony Over the World Media... A World Conscience Shrouded in a Cloud of Holocaust Guilt..."

"We all know why. The hegemony over world media exercised by Jews is crucial so that no one can ever challenge the Zionist narrative or point out the naked, unadulterated lunacy of the whole Zionist enterprise. Coupled with a world conscience shrouded in a cloud of Holocaust guilt, an event that is forbidden to even debate, you get an oppressive atmosphere that has suffocated the ability of Western civilization to deconstruct Zionism down to its most basic insanities.

"For how is it conceivable for otherwise rational populations to even entertain, let alone accept and adopt, the twisted Zionist logic about the Jews 'returning' to a promised land after so many thousands of years of supposed separation? And how can these same people acquiesce to Israeli politicians openly using such religious nonsense as a justification for the contemporary and ongoing catastrophe inflicted upon the millions of guiltless Palestinian inhabitants of that land?

José Maria Aznar, Who Defended Israel, "Might As Well Give Us Back Malaga and Marbella"

"Take for example, José María Aznar, the former Spanish prime minister, who recently gave a solemn warning on the pages of the London Times: 'Anger over Gaza is a distraction. We cannot forget that Israel is the West's best ally in a turbulent region ... if Israel goes down, we all go down....'.

"Well, Aznar, we do not advocate for Israel to disappear or go down anywhere, because, despite the evil deeds accompanying its creation, Israel is a fact that we have to live with today. Likewise, the Israelis are fellow human beings upon whom I do not wish to impose the televised barbecuing of the eyes and flesh of their children using white phosphorus, nor shall I ever tolerate such horrendous barbarity to be inflicted upon them.

"But hey, José, if you see nothing wrong with what Israel is, and regard its Goldstone-documented war crimes as a mere 'distraction,' while ignoring that it is the source of all the 'turbulence' of the region you mentioned, then you might as well give us back Malaga and Marbella. After all, in Andalucía, no Christian or Jew was ever persecuted or burned at the stake, nor had his bone marrow fried by any other means."

"The Travesty Continues Unabated... Zionism is Nothing but a Terrible, Incurable Disease of the Mind"

"Yet, the travesty continues unabated. Take this most recent manifestation of the mental illness enveloping the racist state of Israel (branded by Jewish U.S. Media Inc. as 'the only democracy in the Middle East').

"Hillary Rubin is a U.S. Jew from Detroit who decided to move to Israel in 2006 – something millions of Palestinian refugees can only dream of. But that is not the story. Rubin happens to also be the niece of Zionist leader Nahum Sokolow, so you would've supposed that she is a Jewish notable, revered in Israel for her noble lineage.

"Last month, she fell in love and wanted to get married to a nice Jewish boy from Herzliya. According to Ha'aretz newspaper, after filing for a wedding license she was refused, and was told that she needed to prove the Jewishness of her maternal lineage for – listen to this – four entire generations. This is not 1933 Germany, but modern day Israel. So she got letters from four Conservative rabbis and one Chabad rabbi attesting to her Jewishness.

"But the Herzliya Rabbinate still wouldn't have it. To allow her to marry her sweetheart, these men of God stipulated she comes up with the birth or death certificates of her mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother – something she of course failed to do.

"This is not an isolated incident, but the official applicable Israeli law on the books. Oh yes, Adolf Hitler is turning in his grave at this news. 'And they dared crucify me for the Nuremberg laws?' the Führer is muttering to himself.

"Well, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Didn't I tell you that Zionism is nothing but a terrible, incurable disease of the mind?"

Yes, of course, “Zionism” is a disease of the mind, sure.

Just since the start of their “holy” month of “Ramadan”, which isn’t over yet, Mohammedans have committed 182 separate acts of brutal violence leaving 868 dead.

Meanwhile, the “Zionist” Jews are working on their 159th Nobel Prize in Medicine.

This is the case simply because, in this modern world, we do not go around stealing other people's land

Except for the Arab league of course - kicking out 860,000 Jews and stealing their property.

The archeological record which the Muslims deny is, of course, very much there. But even if it weren’t, DNA would still give the lie to the Muslim narrative.

I wonder what that Babylonian Talmud thingy is.

I also wonder what the Saudi bozo would have to say about this: Let's Restore Medina to the Jews (which is based upon Islamic sources).

Send him this...

For the UNknowing, the UNaware and the wary,

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), its judicial...all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes.
Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

The sooner America learns this , the better. Some know and many do not, but it is a threat to everything America knows.

Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. He is doing nothing to protect America as per his oath. Also, as a Muslim, he knows this, he know far better, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.

The universities of "the west" have been teaching for a century or more that the Bible is mythology. No wonder no one argues with these people. They agree with them!

Do you imagine any islamic studies departments are engaging in higher criticism of the koran?

Two years ago, Israeli professor Shlomo Sand argued, with meticulous scholarship in his earth-shattering book, 'The Invention of the Jewish People,' that the claim that the Jews of today are the ethnic offspring of the Biblical Jews is yet another Zionist myth,

Is this true? Is an Israeli scholar writing Arab propaganda?

He’s got some, uh, problems, check out the rest of this page. I included just the amusing sentence below. :’)

What I took away from that article is that Shlomo is a communist academic who hates modern Israel as "racist" and wants to use his book to encourage Israel to become a multicultural paradise instead of the Jewish State. He pushes the discredited Khazar hypothesis still. Oh, and this book was written in a field he knows nothing about.

He's definitely and anti-Zionist so I figured he might be a one state solution guy. His book definitely supports their cause. He claims he favors a two-state solution now and eventual Isreali-Palestinian "confederation." Probably because in his heart he knows the one-state solution would be the end of Israel - and his cush job getting paid to hate Israel at an Israeli university.
