The two great posts of this thread
Pashtun, I hate to see a fellow anti-imperialist wander off on the dark road of Jew-bashing and mindless, reflexive anti-Americanism-- too many have gone down that road, and you're on it too-- and it's the path to hell. It does nothing to help those under the iron heel of imperialism and only gives the apologists for imperialism more propaganda ammo to use by playing into their very worst stereotypes of anti-imperialists.
If it helps, think of it this way. To me (and most people) when we hear you say "closet Jew" it sounds to me and others much like when people call Obama a "closet Muslim." Now, what do you think of people who accuse Obama of secretly being Muslim? Then consider the fact that, at least from my perspective, this is really no different than accusing a pro-Israel person of being a "closet Jew"-- then maybe you'll see where you're going wrong.
Anti-imperialism/anti-capitalism is about the global liberation of people from the ruling/owning-class, not about ethnic, religious, or national division, not even about West vs. East-- to play into those divisions is to go exactly where the imperial ruling class and their supporters want you to go. It's where they have the rest of the world already and if they can get even the anti-imperialist/anti-capitalist opposition there too, then it will always be that way-- the national empires may change, the particular composition of the ruling class may change, but as long as we play into these bullshit divisions, the majority of us will always be under the yoke of some group looking to exploit us for profit.
You're essentially making the same mistake that Jewish anti-capitalists and anti-imperialists who supported the Zionist project did-- they traded global liberation and justice for national liberation and in the process of liberating their own ethnic national group, condemned another to slavery and became the new oppressors themselves.
I learnt a lot from this post, thanks Q-man
Great post, Q-Man.
@Pashtun: You have got many things right in your politics but a few are fucked up. The things you have got right, in my view, are: You are anti-imperialist, anti-EDL, anti-Gert Wilders, anti-Zionism, anti-Islamism (of course), anti-neocon, pro-science, pro-skepticism (although in practice you make outragious claims without providing good evidence!), etc.
The things you have got wrong, in my view, are: You seem to harbour a hatred of Jews. (Well that's how it comes across when you call people closet Jews.) Also, you are too tribalistic. Humanism is about trying to widen the scope of love of people as widely as possible. You mentioned you are a "Pashtun nationalist" in another thread. You have gone from one us-versus-them mentality (Islam) to another (arguably more exclusive) one.
Plus, I just think you need to chill-out a bit. You seem to be angry all the time at America, Israel etc. Here: have a parrot.
