Jews, Blacks And Conspiracy Theories

As a Jew, one of the hard things to deal with in black life are all the nasty conspiracy theories about Jews, including the ones about Jewish doctors poisoning black kids.

Here are some examples:

Black-Jewish Hostility Rouses Leaders in Chicago to Action

Published: July 29, 1988
Relations between blacks and Jews have been severely strained since April when it was disclosed that an aide to Mayor Eugene Sawyer had delivered anti-Jewish lectures at the headquarters of the black Nation of Islam from August 1985 to November 1987. The aide, Steve Cokely, asserted among other things that Jewish doctors were infecting black babies with the AIDS virus, and he warned of an international Jewish conspiracy ”to rule the world.”

Mr. Cokely was dismissed, but not until nearly a week after the attacks were made public.

As for conspiracy theories about Jews wanting “to rule the world”, every group with spirit wants to rule the world because if your group does not rule the world, some other group will and that might be very bad for your group.

Blacks in general do not seem to appreciate it when Jews treat them like children. Here’s another prominent story about this:

Ethiopian In Israeli Riot Over Dumping of Donated Blood
Published: January 29, 1996

JERUSALEM, Jan. 28— Thousands of Ethiopian Jews clashed with riot policemen outside the Prime Minister’s office today in a protest over the news that blood they donated was secretly dumped because of fear that it was contaminated with the virus that causes AIDS.

Israeli officials have said that the blood was accepted from Ethiopians and surreptitiously thrown out so as not to stigmatize the donors publicly. The realization that their blood was rejected seemed to unleash a pent-up sense of humiliation and discrimination among Israel’s 60,000 Ethiopian Jews, an ancient branch of the Jewish people who were brought to Israel in two airlifts in 1984-85 and 1991…

The report about the blood, first published in the daily Maariv, was followed by an explanation from blood-collection officials that they did not use blood from Ethiopian immigrants because of a relatively high rate of H.I.V. infections among them — 520 among 60,000 immigrants, compared with 800 carriers in the rest of the population of 5 million.

Israel tests all donated blood for H.I.V, the virus that causes AIDS, but because the virus often does not show up for six months after infection it excludes certain high-risk groups as donors. In the United States, earlier in the AIDS epidemic blood was not accepted from Haitians, who were thought to be at higher risk of infection. More recently, blood has been excluded only on the basis of high-risk behaviors, like intravenous drug use.

Instead of refusing to take blood from Ethiopian Jews, Israeli officials said they decided to dispose of it quietly so the donors, especially soldiers, would not be stigmatized in public. Most blood in Israel is donated in the army, with entire military units giving together.

For the Ethiopians, the revelation came as a blow. “I’ve never seen them so hurt and angry,” said an Israeli teacher who has long worked with Ethiopians…

“There were mistakes, but the Government’s intentions toward the Ethiopian Jews are good,” said Harry Wall, Israel director of the Anti-Defamation League. “It isn’t a racial issue, but it has been handled insensitively. They have missed many of the nuances on how to relate to a community that is so different from any other immigrant population that Israel has. That leaves the impression that there could be race-related factors.”

But many young Ethiopian Jews, frustrated by their slow integration into Israeli society and inspired by the civil rights campaigns of American blacks, have come to see their plight as a result of their skin color.

Now I read on page 32 of ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky‘s book THE OTHER SIDE OF DECEPTION (a sequel):

The American Jewish community was divided into a three-stage action team. First were the individual sayanim (if the situation had been reversed and the United States had convinced Americans working in Israel to work secretly on behalf of the United States, they would be treated as spies by the Israeli government). Then there was the large pro-Israeli lobby. It would mobilize the Jewish community in a forceful effort in whatever direction the Mossad pointed them. And last was B’nai Brith. Members of that organization could be relied on to make friends among non-Jews and tarnish as anti-Semitic whomever they couldn’t sway to the Israeli cause. With that sort of one-two-three tactic, there was no way we could strike out…

It was Uri who enlightened me regarding the Nes Siyyona facility. It was, he said, an ABC warfare laboratory — ABC standing for atomic, bacteriological, and chemical. It was where our top epidemiological scientists were developing various doomsday machines. …. The Palestinian infiltrators came in handy in this regard. As human guinea pigs, they could make sure the weapons the scientists were developing worked properly and could verify how fast they worked and make them even more efficient. What scares me today, looking back at that revelation, is not the fact that it was taking place but rather the calmness and understanding with which I accepted it.

In December of 1998, Victor Ostrovsky wrote:

Crash of Cargo Plane in Holland Revealed Existence of Israeli Chemical and Biological Weapons Plant

On Oct. 4, 1992 a Tel Aviv-bound El Al cargo aircraft crashed into an apartment complex in Bijlmermeer, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Amsterdam a few minutes after takeoff from the nearby Shipol airport. The crash of the Boeing 747-200 killed 39 people on the ground and all four crew members.

The plane’s cargo was the subject of wide speculation for the next six years. The local media suspected something was not right when the crash site was cordoned off and access was limited to non-Dutch search teams in space suit-like protective gear.

At first the rumor was that there were radioactive materials on board, and radioactive traces continued to send Geiger counters off their scales long after the site was cleaned up. The Dutch government accepted the Israeli government’s explanation that radioactive counterweights were present in all early models of the 747s.

After the crash El Al representatives handed over to the Dutch authorities a revised cargo manifest which, sources now admit, included a variety of materials previously not disclosed. For some unexplained reason, the Dutch officials agreed to keep Israel’s secrets.

For years following the crash, however, residents of the surrounding neighborhoods displayed a uniquely high number of unusual ailments. But when they took to the media their inquiries as to whether the plane’s cargo could have contained health hazards, both the residents and the media were brushed off. Even though Dutch authorities knew what was on that plane, they preferred to lie to their own citizens rather than confront Israel.

Finally, on Oct. 1 of this year, the Dutch daily newspaper NRC Handelsblad reported it had obtained documents confirming that when the El Al flight crashed six years ago it had on board 190 liters of dimethyl methyl phosphonate (DMMP), a chemical used to produce Sarin, the nerve gas used to deadly effect by members of a religious cult on the Tokyo subway system.

The following day a spokesman for El Al, the Israeli national airline, confirmed that “the documentation states that DMMP was on the plane, that it was packed in accordance with the international regulations governing uplift of this material, and the document was signed by the captain stating that everything was in order prior to departure. All of these documents were turned over to the Dutch authorities after the accident.” It was further learned that the chemical in question was ordered by the Israeli biological institute in Nes Zionna. Finally, the jig was up.

Pre-Emptive Face-Saving

In an ironic attempt to save face, Israeli Transport Minister Shaul Yahalom ordered the Civil Aviation Authority to reopen its investigation into what the Boeing 747-200 was carrying. Shortly thereafter, Aviv Bushinsky, the spokesman for the office of the Israeli prime minister, stated that the chemical known as DMMP was not used for the manufacturing of nerve gas (which is illegal under all of the international treaties to which Israel is a signatory, but has never ratified), but instead is used in the testing of gas masks.

The Dutch paper said the chemical came from Solkatronic Chemicals Inc., an American company based both in Pennsylvania and at 30 Two Bridges Road, Fairfield, NJ 07004-1530. The newspaper also reported that the amount of DMMP on board the aircraft was enough to produce up to 594 pounds of Sarin, and that three of the four main components needed for Sarin production were on the plane.

Solkatronic vice president John Swanziger told an Israeli newspaper that the chemicals his company sold to the “Israel Institute for Biological Research” were not for testing gas masks and were, in fact, on a special restrictive list, requiring a license from the U.S. Department of Commerce for their sale. The license was provided to the company by the office of Israel’s prime minister prior to shipment.

I am not an expert in these matters. I do not know if Victor Ostrovsky is telling the truth. You can read about him and make up your own mind. I give him some credibility. I don’t take what he says as automatically truth or lie. I weigh it and compare it to other sources.

Do I believe that Israel has a big stash of chemical weapons? Yes. Do I believe it has tested them on people? Yes. Do I believe they tested them on South African blacks? I would need more evidence before I believed something so heinous.

I wonder if Israel has chemical weapons that affect different types of DNA differently?
