Gilad Atzmon on European blood libels and anti-Semitism

According to Gilad Atzmon in his new book, The Wandering Who, he has always ‘inquired’ into Jewish history, and Jewish understandings of anti-Semitism, from an early age:

““It seems I didn’t learn the necessary lesson because when we studied the middle age blood libels, I again wondered out loud how the teacher could know that these accusations of Jews making Matzo out of young Goyim’s blood were indeed empty or groundless. Once again I was sent home for a week. In my teens I spent most of my mornings at home rather than in the classroom.”

There’s also this:

“I asked the emotional tour guide if she could explain the fact that so many Europeans loathed the Jews so much and in so many places at once. I was thrown out of school for a week.”

Plus some quotes recommending Hitler’s favourite Jew Otto Weininger:

“Otto Weininger helped me grasp who I am, or rather who I may be, what I do, what I try to achieve and why my detractors invest so much effort trying to stop me.

“Thanks to Weininger, I realised how wrong I was – I was not detached from the reality about which I wrote, and I never shall be. I am not looking at the Jews, or at Jewish identity, I am not looking at Israelis. I am actually looking in the mirror. With contempt, I am actually elaborating on the Jew in me.”

Atzmon is essentially pushing Nazi assumptions.
