The Far-Right Complexities of Zionism and Anti-Zionism

Zion (Jewish Eurocentric racism), and anti-Zionism (opposition to this racism), are peculiar entities, as both possess the power to attract far-right political support.  In the case of Zionism, not much imagination is required as to work-out what the political far-right find attractive, as a predominately ‘White’ and highly militarised and aggressive Jewish State is given carte blanche by the United States (and its allies), to persecute, torture, rape and murder the non-White Palestinian (and primarily ‘Islamic’) indigenous population of that occupied land (i.e. historical Palestine).  It seems illogical for the forces of neo-Nazism to politically ‘align’ themselves with Israel – particularly as this political far-right grouping has historically viewed all Jewish people with a racial disdain, and perpetuated the Hitlerite holocaust of WWII specifically (although not exclusively) against them.  Just as ‘like’ attracts  ‘like’, it is the Eurocentric ‘White’ racism that is implicit in Zionism that the political far-right find attractive, and not the theology of Judaism.  The Western far-right will support Israel for as long as it pursues its racist anti-Palestinian cause, but will abandon this support if Israel ever changed its Zionist policies.  This is nothing more than a relationship of convenience, because although Israel is currently supported by the far-right political establishment, Jews living outside of Israel are still subject to attack and murder by Western neo-Nazi thugs. Israel, of course, from time to time, condemns far-right political activity, but refuses to include its own Zionism in that criticism.

As Adolf Hitler specified that ‘lying’ is an important tool for far-right political activists, the far-right ‘ideologues’ have continuously sought new ways to sully and blur the left – right political debate.  This policy has been inspired as a means to hide its own despicable actions throughout the world both before and after WWII, particularly with regard to the Holocaust that targeted primarily Jews, but also the disabled, homosexuals, political dissidents, anti-racists, Communists, Socialists and anyone who opposed any aspect of Hitlerite thinking.  Rightwing historians assist this process of denial by claiming that the holocaust never happened, and that such a claim is nothing but a conspiracy theory aimed at besmirching Hitler’s reputation as a ‘great’ leader.  Another tactic is to argue numbers – stating that for various (and spurious) reasons, at least six million Jews (and other people) could not have been killed in the Concentration Camps both before and during WWII.  Given al this seeming contradictory information, how does the far-right justify supporting the anti-Zionist cause?  It does so because it links Zionist Israel with Soviet Russia – ludicrously stating that both are manifestations of a world-wide Jewish conspiracy to gain complete political power and eradicate the ‘gentile’ races, etc.  This is the far-right use of a legitimate (predominately ‘leftwing’) cause to attack the memory of the USSR, and turn the anti-fascist war it fought against Hitler’s Nazi Germany, into an ‘attack’ on peace-loving Europeans!  In pursuing this policy, the far-right are attempting to re-write history in their own distorted image.  The USSR fought and opposed fascism as a matter of ideological necessity, and as such, opposition to capitalism in decay, is the duty of every (non-Trotskyite) Socialist and Communist, and being so, is not a matter of choice.  The far-right plays down its own atrocities (as a form of historical denial), and instead projects its own short-comings and inadequacies onto the memory of the anti-fascist USSR.  This form of neo-Nazi revisionism plays into the hands of the Western-backed neo-Nazi regimes in Eastern Europe that pursue a racist anti-Russian policy.  Of course, as matters stand, none of this matters to Israel, because Israel is currently a racist colonial State occupying someone else’s land.
