various fragments on ethnicountry and unethnicity.. Palestinians and Native Americans -- by Ytzhak • Saturday November 05, 2005 at 07:07 AM --

...While Native Americans and Palestinians were the ancient indigenous peoples of their lands, this was of little or no relevance to the foreign settlers. What really mattered was "Manifest Destiny", what really mattered was "Zionism".

Palestinians and Native Americans The Inherent Struggle for Freedom and Justice by Ramzy Baroud -- ---- January 14, 2003

Few can be as blunt regarding the legacy of the United States toward the native people of this land as the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt. In his narrative, "The Winning of the West," Roosevelt spoke about the "spread of the English-speaking peoples over the world's wasted spaces." He wrote: "The European settlers moved into an uninhabited waste...the land is really owned by no one.... The settler ousts no one from the land. The truth is, the Indians never had any real title to the soi industrialism here, no mistake about that.

Mmmm, not the sort of 'letters to the editor' posted to lbo just now I hope?

"Bombast compensates for a lack of substance. Kind of like piety among the Pharisees."

That's a load of a tangle no matter what your angle.

I'd personally look at these equations cross-eyed to get them straight, associating pharisees with bombast.

Then again, I 'd sooner agree that lack of substance often comes and goes cloaked in phariseeism than conceding most piety is disguised bombast.

It's a classic double bind loss of head and tail I guess. He must have the flue too. giant book arguing for diffusionism (migration of culture; might as well call it distortion, monstrification, out-of-boundsness, take your multifucking cultural pick axe yourself about. It's illustrated too, check the swiss swastikas: can you see it yet? Just keep going and you'll find that the churchbell, audially hewing life into public and private is the ultimate swastika if you time tec right. The digitariat will be the most helpless yet destructive of all 'aritats', artiats, tarryats, whatever.

11. So long he sat until he slept; and he awoke of joy bereft: on his hands he felt heavy constraints, and round his feet fetters clasped. 12. “Who are the men that on the rings' possessor have laid bonds? and me have bound?” 13. Then cried Nidud, the Niarars' lord: “Whence gottest thou, Völund! Alfars' chief!2 our gold, in Ulfdal?” 14. “No gold was here in Grani's path, far I thought our land from the hills of Rhine. I mind me that we more treasures possessed, when, a whole family, we were at home.
15. Hladgud and Hervör were of Hlödver born; know was Ölrún,
Kiar's daughter, she entered into the house, stood on the floor, her voice moderated: “Now is he not mirthful, who from the forest comes.” King Nidud gave to his daughter Bödvild the ring which had been taken from the bast in Völund's house; but he himself bore the sword that had belonged to Völund. The queen said:

16. His teeth he shows, when the sword he sees, and Bödvild's ring
he recognizes: threatening are his eyes as a glistening serpent's:
let be severed his sinews' strength; and set him then in Sævarstad.
2. The designation of Alfars' chief, or prince, applied to Volund, who, as we learn from the prose introduction, was a son of a king of the Finns, may perhaps be accounted for by the circumstance that the poem itself hardly belongs to the Odinic Mythology, and was probably composed when that system was in its decline and giving place to the heroic or romantic.

If you think northvegr is a must for and must be a favored haunt of tolkien enthusiasts you are wrong, their forum is quiet
supporter of Shamir on an otherwise hostile list

down the thread a ways someone confirms my suspicions:

Several years ago I did meet Shamir on two separate occasions. In both cases he was the speaker and I sat in the audience. His talk started well and it was obvious that he is a bright and knowledgeable person. For whatever its worth, he seems to speak Hebrew, Russian and English rather fluently. Things progressed smoothly until a person in the audience asked him a question he seemingly did not like, and, all hell broke loose. He started to scream (an understatement) at that person in a rather insulting and hysterical mode. His second talk was a bit better but not by much. After these two experiences I concluded that he is a bright but a very disturbed individual. He
obviously has very poor emotional control..

November 05, 2005 ----- “Stalin’s Willing Executioners”?
* By Kevin MacDonald *

Also by Kevin MacDonald:

Was the 1924_immigration Cut-off “Racist”? --
And The Unmentionable Question Of ethnic Interests

Yuri Slezkine’s book / The Jewish Century which appeared last year to rapturous reviews , is an intellectual /tour de force/, alternately muddled and brilliant, courageous and apologetic. Slezkine’s greatest accomplishment is to set the historical record straight on the importance of Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution and its aftermath. He summarizes previously available data and extends our understanding of the Jewish role in revolutionary movements before 1917 and of Soviet society thereafter. His book provides a fascinating chronicle of the Jewish rise to elite status in all areas of Soviet society—culture, the universities, professional occupations, the media, and government. Indeed, the book is also probably the best, most up-to-date account of Jewish economic and cultural pre-eminence in Europe (and America) that we have.

-------- Well into the 20^th century, as Slezkine himself notes, most Eastern European Jews could not speak the languages of the non-Jews living around them. Slezkine also ignores their medieval outlook on life, their obsession with the Kabbala —the writings of Jewish mystics—their superstition and anti-rationalism, and their belief in magical remedies and exorcisms.

-------- Typical MacDonald: Forming alliances with exploitative elites is arguably the most reliably recurrent theme observable in Jewish economic behavior over the ages. personal account of interaction with Israel Shamir by an italian lady, not mary from peacepalestine though she posts here too.

And then there's the observation that it's only in the English-speaking
world that men name them: Peter, Dick, John Thomas, etc.

I once ran an informal survey to find out if other languages/cultures
did the same and the answer was no. But perhaps the lurkers could let us
know if that is true.

next in thread (long)
