"I think Jews are the smartest people in the world. For thousands of years, they didn't have a homeland. They got kicked out of places. They had to live by their wits, so they always stressed education. [ . . . ]  Because we are the smartest people in the world, we are also the most hated. People feel threatened. We're the smartest group of people, and yet we're the lawyers, the doctors, the bankers. We've risen to high levels in society and that's resented. [ . . . ] The film industry is all run by Jews, even Disney." -- Film director Rob Reiner ("A Few Good Men," "When Harry Met Sally")

"His apology for making drunken anti-Semitic remarks isn't enough to redeem him. The actor also must acknowledge that  his work reflects anti-Semitism, particularly the 2004 hit movie "The Passion of the Christ". -- Rob Reiner commenting on Mel Gibson

I think Rob Reiner is right. Mel Gibson should 'come clean on anti-Semitism'. Not just the one drunken incident the other day, when he shared with a Jewish cop his thoughts on who is to blame for most of the wars. Nor just in the 'Passion of Christ' where he created the impression that Jews were responsible for Jesus' death. No, he should admit rampant, all-trandescenting anti-Semitism.

Language is a living being. Over the years, words change meaning due to their their day-to-day use in media and politics. The term 'anti-Semitism' is a perfect example. You might have heard the joke that in the olden days, an anti-Semite was someone who hated Jews, these days it's someone whom the Jews hate.

There is no point arguing whether the term anti-Semitism makes sense or not. It doesn't matter that 80-90% of modern days Jews, the so-called Ashkenazi, are more related to the ethnic Turk tribes of Hun King Attila than to the Judaic King David. There is no point insisting that the closest thing to anti-'Semitism' was the Jewish racism against Semitic Arabs or Israel's ethnic cleansing and slow-motion genocide of the Palestinian people.

At the end of the day, all that matters is the actual modern use of the term. The American online dictionary Webster describes anti-Semitism as being critical of Israel, Jews or Jewish influence. It sounds like a conspiracy, but it isn't. It's merely a reflection of Jewish Power, the stranglehold of Jewish interest groups on Western societies.

As long as the majority of Western media are controlled by Jews, as long as it impossible to have a successful career in politics, media, entertainment, universities or anywhere else for that matter, especially in the US, without sucking up to Jewish interests, as long as Jewish money decides who is Prime Minister or receives the highest honours in the UK, as long as there are heresy laws preventing European historians from probing some of the most non-sensical claims made by the Holocaust industry, the current use of the term anti-Semitism is not going to change.

For anyone familiar with the principles of Aikido or Tai Chi, full frontal resistance to a power such as this makes no sense. But what we can do is use this overwhelming force against itself to derail it. A good way of doing that is to stop trying to defend ourselves against the libel of anti-Semitism. If being critical of Israel or AIPAC or Holocult heresy laws is anti-Semitism, then we all should wear this label with pride.

By the Jews own definition, criticising Israel's slaughter of Lebanese civilians is being anti-Semitic. So is criticising their use of snipers to shoot dead Palestinian kids, the use of Caterpillars to bulldoze their homes, the use of torture and extra-judicial killings to break their resistance. In other words, being anti-Semitic is the decent thing to do.

Let's all wear badges saying, I'm Anti-Semite, All Decent People Are.
