Healthy Muslims Hate Jews?

A healthy Muslim, Arab, Palestinian is going to dislike, perhaps even hate, Jews because there is a Jewish state in a land he believes belongs to his people, and because this tiny Jewish state so vastly outperforms his own countries. Rather than live with that shame, he will rationally prefer to live in contempt, dislike, hatred and conspiracy theories. Low IQ peoples such as Arabs and blacks (Arabs average about 85 on IQ tests, American blacks the same) love conspiracy theories because they explain their low achievement by blaming outsiders. Any low-achieving group is going to love explanations for their failures that blame out-groups.

Imagine you are an Arab and there’s this Israel in your midst and it is a thriving country supported by the world’s biggest power — the United States of America. You will want to do everything you can to make the lives of Jews miserable. It is totally in their self-interest for Muslims to rally against Israel on college campuses and to press for divestment from Israel. I wonder if any Arab or Muslim who does not support this is, perhaps, sick. He’s lacking in group spirit. He does not identify with the welfare of his people.

That does not mean he should live his life so obsessed about hating Jews that he can’t enjoy his wife, kids, friends and community and a walk in the park. His Jew hatred should not rationally cause him to commit criminal acts against Jews if there’s a likelihood of getting caught and punished. Why should he ruin his life just to hurt a Jew? Yes, I know some Muslims will, and it is probably in Islamic interests for some Muslims to go suicidal against Jews, but most Muslims have lives to lead beyond hating Jews. But it makes sense to me that Muslims as a group dedicate themselves to harassing and hurting Jews.

If Israel is the Jewish state, which it is, then Jews around the world will bear the brunt of the anger of people who hate Israel. All Jews become targets in a new way because there’s a Jewish state on land that Muslims and Arabs regard as their own.

Different groups have different interests and these interests clash. Strongly identifying in-groups such as Jews, blacks and Muslims are inevitably going to have distrust, if not a burn, against outsiders.

Ryan Bell:

“Low IQ peoples such as Arabs and blacks…”

WHAT? You must be joking. You’re implying they’re less intelligent.

I don’t think I’ve ever encountered such blatantly racist views. Wow!

You’re delusional.

There’s no such sin as racism. If there were, somebody would have mentioned it prior to the 20th Century, and yet every moral tradition, prior to the past 120 years, is strangely silent about this supposedly horrible thing called “racism.”

I would think you would know that is not a valid form of argument. There are only two valid ways of arguing. One, is to point out errors in fact. Two, is to point out errors in logic. Name calling is not an honorable argument.

Ryan Bell: “I don’t have time for that. This is such a basic idea. So shocking to see someone deny something so obvious. Nobody called cancer ‘cancer’ until they did. Doesn’t mean there wasn’t cancer before.”

Chaim Amalek The Torah does not use the word “racism”, which is a recent invention, but it does have something to say about prejudice involving marriage of a Black woman (an Ethiopian) to a high status Jew, Moses. See Numbers, Chapter 12:

1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.
3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.
12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother’s womb.
13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.
14 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.
15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.
16 And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.

Chaim Amalek It is one thing to “notice” racial differences, which is fine, and quite another to say “You should not have married that Ethiopian woman because, well, she’s black.” One perfectly plausible interpretation of these verses is that God turned Miriam into a whiter-than-white leper for criticizing Moses’ interracial marriage to an Ethiopian.

Luke Ford Ryan, do you regard every people in the world as having identical gifts? Or do different peoples have different gifts, on average? For instance, the Japanese and Australian aboriginees strike me as two people with distinct gifts. Having different gifts does not make you less valuable to God or to the world, it just might mean your people are not a great fit with certain countries. For instance, Jews were not a great fit in Europe in WWII.

Ryan Bell No, certainly not the way you’re conceiving of it. Your blindness to your own biases is staggering. I’m not going to do your research for you but suffice it to say, the whole notion of IQ is dubious at best as a measure of anything useful. Race is social constructed. In other words, race is not a biological category. The assumptions behind the supposed correlation between race and intelligence are always made from a white, western perspective (no shock that rich white people with too much time on their hands would conclude that poor black people are too stupid to be their equals). Finally, the opportunties afforded people to learn and acheive their human potential are not spread evenly. If you think my child’s performance on a standandardized test and a black child her same age in south LA has anything to do with the color of their skin you’re delusional. And I’m not saying that as a put down. I’m being serious.

Aage Rendalen · 5 mutual friends
What we do have are different cultures that often coincide with different physical traits. Birds of a feather have always flocked together for protection and community. Some cultures, such as the Jewish, has attributed enormous status to learning and literacy and Jews have excelled way out of proportion to their percentage of the population. You see the same with some Asian cultures. In the US, the biggest difference between blacks and whites is not skin color, but culture, and culture has a huge influence on performance, be it sports, arts or academics.
7 hrs · Unlike · 2

Alex Trivunovic I agree, culture has an impact on how people behave. Where does culture come from? I think it is reasonable to posit that it is very influenced by our genetic makeup, which is a product of evolutionary adaptation. Hence, race exists. It is the sum of all of our genes that have been molded by our ancestral environments.

Any immigrant community from the developing world is going to be a mixed bag. Some of them, like orthodox Jews praise God that they were not born women, and act accordingly. Others are reduced to depend on hand-outs, just like the wealthy in this country. And yet others are set to become the future leaders of the country. Humanity itself is a mixed bag, made up of the good, the bad and the ugly. Outward physical features are not much of a clue as to which category people fall into. That’s why I’m more surprised than shocked at your white supremacy doctrine. I’m sorry you should end up holding such disgraceful views.

I just watched the hit piece on Norway you posted. This is the first time I’ve seen anybody suggest that immigrants were to blame for being massacred by a blue-eyed neo-Nazi Norwegian. What it does get right is that violent rape is primarily committed by men from cultures that denigrate women, but that’s like discounting frat house rapes committed by natives since it didn’t take place in some dark back alley. And the much discredited idea of no-go zones where sharia rules is just made up. What is true is that Muslim fundamentalists are just as obnoxious as fundamentalists everywhere, including those who hurl stones at cars driving on Shabbath.

“IQ has nothing to do with somebody’s worth in the eyes of God and man.” This reminds me of the controversy the prophet of your childhood was involved in when she wrote that some races of men were the result of “amalgamation between man and beast”. When she was roundly condemned for these views, in the 1860s, Uriah Smith, family friend and editor, replied that it was no problem that hottentots and “digger” Indians had animal blood in their veins because as long as they had a drop of Adam’s blood, they were okay with God.

I’ve never scored above 130 on an IQ test. “Then say that’s no problem.” It’s no problem for some things, it’s a big problem for other things. Certain tasks strongly need a high IQ, other tasks not so much. Blacks have many gifts that non-blacks lack such an easy spontaneity, charisma, a gift for improvisation. Non-blacks could never have come up with jazz or rap. I don’t think blacks mope that they’re not Japanese and vice versa.

She adamantly stuck to ‘race doesn’t really exist’ line, but then later on, discussed her work as a forensic anthropologist and talked about how she identified homicide and accident victims remains by sex, age, and race! How bout’ that!

Dr. Sally Satel writes for the New York Times Sunday Magazine in 2002: “In practicing medicine, I am not colorblind. I always take note of my patient’s race. So do many of my colleagues. We do it because certain diseases and treatment responses cluster by ethnicity. Recognizing these patterns can help us diagnose disease more efficiently and prescribe medications more effectively. When it comes to practicing medicine, stereotyping often works.”
