Náhled

DONALD Trump has warned that the US military is “locked and loaded” as the western superpower edges towards a “full-scale war” with Iran. The Islamic Republic is accused of masterminding attacks that have crippled the world’s largest oil plant in Saudi Arabia. But despite the assault, claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group, comprising of sophisticated […] Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Anti-Semitism: The Fight that Never Flags

Náhled

Anti-Semitism: The Fight that Never Flags In the course of a review of The Plot against America, Philip Roth’s dystopian novel that has the United States adopting a form of Nazi rule after the election of America-Firster Charles Lindbergh, the Australian writer Clive James confessed to never quite suspending his disbelief in this lurid alternative history. The United States, wrote James, “will never be free of racial prejudice for the same reason that it will never enshrine racial prejudice in anything like the Nuremberg Laws: it’s a free country.” He pithily concluded that “the insuperable problem with The Plot against America is that America is against the plot.”Bari Weiss, a staff writer and editor for the opinion section of the New York Times, used to hold the same iron conviction that the United States would never succumb to the plague of anti-Semitism. In her slim new book, How to Fight Anti-Semitism, Weiss confesses she is no longer so sanguine about the status of the “Jewish question” in the land of the free, even if the symptoms of a resurgent anti-Semitism aren’t as acute as they are in the Old World. A fair reading of the times suggests that her newfound anxiety is prudent.Not so long ago, sounding the alarm about the Jewish place in American life would have been dismissed as hyperbolic or hysterical. By the standards of Jewish history, the asylum discovered in the United States after the Shoah was an almost unimaginable gift. Weiss recounts that growing up on American soil around the turn of the 21st century, members of her community knew they were “the lucky ones.” The faint echoes of anti-Semitism were at a safe remove in this secular republic so profoundly shaped by its confrontations with both the Nazi abattoir and the Soviet gulag. “Survival had no longer been our concern,” she writes. In America, the sons and daughters of Abraham and Sarah managed to flourish “like no other diaspora in history,” even if ample evidence of the vehemence ranged against their tribe could be found in the foreign press: pictures of buses blown apart by suicide bombers in Jerusalem, the YouTube video showing Daniel Pearl’s gruesome beheading in Karachi, firebombed synagogues in Stockholm, Jewish cemeteries desecrated in Paris, or attacks on those wearing a kippah in Berlin.Weiss suspects that the failure of anti-Semitism to take hold on this side of the Atlantic can be credited to the American regime’s early efforts to inoculate the country against this venomous mania. In 1790, George Washington gave his assurance to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport, R.I., that American Jews would “possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship.” In the same letter, America’s first president promised that the new republic would give “to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.” As a nation founded on the universalist claims of the Declaration of Independence, the United States has seemed, for all its flaws, particularly ill-suited to federally sanctioned prejudice. In addition, the “special nature of America,” in Weiss’s telling, includes an attachment to the Hebraic tradition as reflected in the dizzying array of biblical place names that dot its landscape. This, in turn, has nourished America’s long-standing alliance with the State of Israel. All of this has predisposed America to be “a New Jerusalem for the Jewish people.”This is not to deny that American Jews occasionally found themselves (as the author did, growing up in Pittsburgh) on the receiving end of rancid jokes about “picking up pennies,” along with creepy “questions about horns.” More often than not, however, these insults didn’t escalate into injuries, in large part because this ill-concealed prejudice was understood by mainstream society to be anathema to American politics and philosophy. It was tempting, therefore, to write off these churlish anti-Jewish outbursts as nothing more than “vestiges of an uglier, more violent past.” Any suggestion that they were harbingers of a resurgent chauvinism threatening Jewish life and limb would have been greeted with mirth.Weiss’s visceral confidence that Jews (along with other religious minorities) would continue to enjoy the fruits of an apparently eternal American exceptionalism was shattered when her kehilla, or community, was visited by evil. In October 2018, eleven Jews were murdered in the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh where Weiss became a bat mitzvah.

Příznivci prezidenta Trumpa by v těchto okamžicích, kdy se tento na popud Izraele chystá rozpoutat válku, měli učinit vše možné i nemožné v zájmu toho, aby je vyslechl. Vzájemná bezpečnostní dohoda USA a Izraele dává totiž Izraeli možnost zatáhnout USA do války – a to v zájmu Izraele. Útok na ropné pole v Saudské Arábii,

Henry Ford byl v prvé řadě člověk, podnikatelem byl až na druhém místě

Daniel Novák 16.09.2019, 18:03

H. Ford byl de jure soukromým vlastníkem, ale de-facto vnímal svoje podniky jako majetek společnosti. Proto když uzavíral kupní/prodejní smlouvy a plánovitě snižoval ceny na produkci, vycházel z cíle služby společnosti. Jednoduše na svých závodech a železnici Henry Ford zavedl osmihodinový pracovní den a garantovaný plat, a zdokonalujíc dílo, které vedl na tomto organizačním základě,

Kusturica mluví česky, vystudoval totiž pražskou FAMU. A zde začíná náš příběh. Podle zjištění redakce totiž pražská filmová fakulta uvažuje, že se od svého slavného absolventa distancuje.

Kozel zahradníkem

Jaroslav Tichý 17.09.2019, 01:10

Před nedávnem došlo po velkých a nesmyslných tahanicích způsobených nestandardním postupem předsedy ČSSD v souvislosti s výměnou nominanta ČSSD na pozici ministra kultury ke jmenování L. Zaorálka na tento post. Prý proto, že jde o zkušeného ministra. Je-li tomu tak, pak nepotřebuje žádných 100 dní hájení. Pojďme se tedy podívat již nyní na počínání nového pana ministra po jeho nástupu do funkce. Stihl toho již docela dost.

Fake news posloužily k ospravedlnění totální války: výmysl o bosensko-srbském „táboru smrti“

Autor neuveden 16.09.2019, 01:10

Poprvé publikováno na webu Global Research 15. července 2015. Článek je staršího data, zařazuji jej za poslední článek Michala Branda Alan Kurdi jako symbol, abych ukázal, že falešné a úmyslně naaranžované fotky, které hýbou veřejným míněním a mění směr událostí, nejsou neobvyklé. Mainstream sahá k těmto desinformacím často a beze studu. No, hlavně že na ČT1 běží ve chvíli, kdy toto píši (neděle 22:20) propagandistický pořad To se ví, který „zábavnou formou odhaluje „falešné zprávy“. Editor

Alan Kurdi jako symbol

Michal Brand 14.09.2019, 01:10

K dnešní úvaze mne inspiroval komentář Tomáše Vyorala a jeho komentář k Alanu Kurdimu a symbolice jeho smrti a fotky. Alan Kurdi, ten malý syrský chlapec, který se utopil v Egejském moři. Jeho fotografie oblétly svět. Měly to být fotografie, které změní svět, jak psala pro-migrantská propaganda. A svým způsobem to tak i být může. Alan Kurdi je totiž opravdu symbolem. Pojďme se podívat na jeho příběh. A na fakta. Připravte se na tvrdou, hořkou realitu – daleko horší, než líčila mas-mediální propaganda.

Vtip a realita

Jaroslav Tichý 13.09.2019, 01:59

Podle některých odborných definic „vtip, anekdota, popřípadě fór, je krátké vyprávění, jehož účelem je pobavit příjemce (posluchače či čtenáře). Obvykle je založen na dvojznačnosti, absurditě nebo paradoxu, je stručný a směřuje k výrazné a úderné pointě. S ohledem na krátkost toho následujícího vyprávění zůstaňme u pojmu vtip. Příklad vtipu z filmu „Sedm statečných“: - muž vypadne z 10. patra činžáku; - a zatímco padá, v každém patře si říká, zatím je to v pořádku.

Obchodní války jsou hrou blázna

Eric Margolis 12.09.2019, 01:10

Podle brilantního vojenského myslitele, generálmajora J.F.C. Fullera, „cílem války není vítězství. Je jím dosažení politických cílů.“ Věčná škoda, že prezident Donald Trump nečte knihy. Zahájil ekonomické války proti Číně, Rusku, Íránu, Kubě a Venezuele bez jakéhokoli jasného strategického cíle, až na to, že se nafouklo jeho ego coby světového předního vojenského vůdce, a že tyto státy potrestal za jejich neposlušnost.

Pokud existuje něco jako vražedná kultura, pak je v Izraeli

Gideon Levy 11.09.2019, 01:10

Tohle napsal Benny Ziffer, redaktor přílohy Kultura a literatura izraelského deníku Haaretz, na své facebookové stránce poté, co se vrátil z osady Ofra, kterou navštívil v souvislosti s projevem soustrasti: „Cestou jsem se díval na palestinské vesnice podél židovských komunit, a pomyslel jsem si, že pro Palestince je vražda něco jako sport nebo zábava, možná je to náhražka za erotiku. Z tohoto hlediska s nimi nikdy nebudeme mít nic kulturně společného.“

Overtonovo okno: Když příklad dojde naplnění

Veškeré pokrokové lidstvo, jak nás označují, naprosto přirozeně přijalo homosexuály a jejich subkulturu, jejich právo uzavírat manželství, adoptovat děti a obhajovat svou sexuální orientaci ve školách a mateřských školkách. Snaží se nám dokázat, že je to všechno přirozený běh věcí. Lžou nám.

Od doby, kdy USA odstoupily od smlouvy INF, Atlantická aliance znovu umístila svá odpalovací zařízení a jaderné rakety středního doletu. To přeměnilo střední a západní Evropu - a také Pacifik - na bojiště.
