MZ has gone over the edge and called for the removal of Olmert via any means possible. Those of you who were under the mistaken impression that our positions were similar need to think again. The closest we have come to that is seeking the denaturalization and deportation of Communists who break the law like the people at Code Pinko. The mere fact that someone is a Communist is probable cause for scrutiny
given the history of treason and subversion in this country.
The truth is when you are dealing with MZ you are dealing with a Utopian of another stripe. He is not nearly as genocidal and dangerous as the Duck, Renegade, Troutsky and Che. MZ wants a religious utopia, how he intends to create this is by tossing away democracy. This is not the opinion of the vast majority of Orthodox Jews, including members of my own family. How does he plan on enforcing these laws? He will have to have a cadre of religious police ala a Communist block patrol. One could envision MZ and KY doing a version of Dragnet. The notion of religious goons enforcing MZ's theological whims is more comedic than ominous.
While MZ is comedic, the antics of Renegade and Company are not. The charge of Renegade was that I was off topic. This is mildly amusing because the two places I posted on the Finkelstein and Yezidi post were entirely on subject. My critique of the Yezidi post remains that framing honor killings as typified by Yezidi killing a girl for falling in love with a Muslim is bltantly dishonest. Honor killings are almost entirely a Muslim practice. Moreover, any serious discussion of these practices involves Islam. In fairness, Stephen Schwartz does claim this is a regional cultural practice and is not sanctioned by Islam itself. The continuation
of this practice is directly
Renegade and Co are apologists for a brutal police state in Cuba. While they hyperventilate about every action of the USA and Israel they are oblivious to the mess Communism aided and abetted by their Western apologists has created. Che Bob is fond of invoking Pinochet but the death toll of Pinochet is around 3000. The number of people executed in Cuba are much higher. Moreover Chileans do not get on boats
trying to flee. Where are these mythical Chilean refugees, boat people and refugee camps? Chile has a vibrant economy and calling Pinochet more corrupt than Fidel is absurd. Cuba is a police state that practices genuine torture and holds political prisoners.
The problem with Communist, Jihadis, Greens and to a much lesser degree MZ is that they seriously believe Utopia in this world is possible. In the case of the Greens this is a paradise never was probably derived from looking at far too many Mazola commercial. Native Americans lived short lives punctuated with excruciating work. The notion of a Green Eden is a pot pipe fantasy from the usual suspects.
Communists and Jihadist both seek global hegemony. As keepers of the divine truth every action is sanctioned to create their pipe dream fantasies. If Eden is attainable than Killing Fields, Gulags, perpetual war and terrorism are a means to
an end. Communists steal property and the workers work longer hours to produce a shabby product. Since the State owns the means of production it has no interest in workers rights.
Jihadis seek a global empire where infidels will have to pay for the right to breathe. These payments are called Jiyzah and function much like a classic mafia protection racket. Jihadis also want to subject everyone to live under their theological laws with Jim Crow features.
A normal religious person understands that Utopia is something beyond this world. They have their moral principles, but do not seek to impose them on others. They build and serve their communities each and every day. They want to be left alone to worship God as they see fit in peace. They do not talk of killing unbelievers and hold the door open to those who wish to join.
Those who attempt to create Utopia in this world are fools. The question is how many
people need to die and suffer for the mental pathologies of Communist and Jihadis. When does the predictable stench of death become enough? Every Communist clings to the hope that the next application will get it right, but the failure is predictable.
There is no Utopia in this world except for a town with that name in Long Island.
