Gilad Atzmon claims that Fagin and Shylock accurately represent Jewish identity, the credit crunch was caused by the Jews, the Holocaust is a religion, and Hitler may be proved right about the Jews. He argues the Jewish lobby in Germany provoked the Nazis into fighting back. At a recent jazz show, he “joked” that throwing the Jews into the sea, would be unfair on the sea.
Here are some quotes from the interview:
7:34 “all the Holocaust indoctrination, it was pretty heavy on me”
11:44 “my findings actually reveal the embarrassing fact that every form of Jewish politics is morbid, is dangerous, is tribal, is racially supremacist, is racist to the bone”
15:15 “Jewishness is different forms of ideology and politics that celebrate Jewish tribal supremacy”
17:48 “Jews didn’t invent tribalism. Tribalism is a human feature. They are just very good at it, some of them. Especially those who identify as Jews. Why? I would love to say why we are so good at it – although I don’t regard myself as a Jew any more – because we practise it for 3000 years!”
20:17 “Gay political philosophy is very similar. It’s very interesting because quite a few of those who oppose me, are actually Jewish and Palestinian gay activists”. RTVE: “Interesting.” *laughs* GA:” It is very interesting but they wouldn’t admit this is what they oppose because they don’t have an argument. I argue that the difference between a Jew and a Zionist, is not very different from the difference between Homosexual and Gay. Homosexual is a sexual preference. Gay is a political identity. Very interesting. [...] When I realised that there is some similarity between Jewish tribal discourse, Jewish identity politics and gay politics, I started to look into it. [...] I was shocked to find out that all, or most of the scholars in the gay political discourse were Jews.”
22:00 “I learned about the book of Esther from a militant lesbian feminist spoke about Queen Esther, how she manipulated the goyim, how she manipulated her husband and how she won, and I thought oh my g-d, this is exactly the story what AIPAC, or the Jewish lobby, is doing in America!”
It is unsettling that such an interview should be published by a national broadcaster in 21st century Europe.
