| Multicultural Jew-Hatred: Failed Ideologies Bond Over Scapegoating
| Tuesday, March 12, 2019
BCF : Yes, the radical Islamists and their allies, the radical Leftists, hate Jews and Americans. Bernard Lewis wrote a masterpiece about it entitled What Went Wrong?, explaining that the Middle Eastern Islamic world constitutes one vast area of failure.
Unwilling or incapable of taking the blame for this epic failure, they blamed it on the West — above all, on the United States and the Jews. Ironically, they imported these doctrines from the West they hate.
As Martin Kramer says, if there had been Nobel prizes a thousand years ago, almost all of them would have gone to Muslims.
Today you can count them on the fingers of one mutilated hand, and those were invariably trained at Oxford or Cal Tech. Most Nobel laureates, above all in the hard sciences, are Americans (or trained or worked in America), and a spectacular percentage of those are Jewish. As of 2017, 22.5 percent of Nobel winners were Jews, out of a global population of 0.2 percent. The anti-Semites hate that, taking it as evidence of the power of the Jewish conspiracy.
The Islamic peoples have earned
their low standing. Between the late Ninth Century to the beginning of
the 20th Century -- a thousand years -- fewer books were translated from
foreign languages to Arabic than were translated into Spanish in Spain
alone. No wonder they are so prone to crazy theories about us. Moreover,
their countries are for the most part despotic failures, while Israel
and the United States are bursting with freedom, energy and creativity
(and good food).
The Muslims know this, and of late some of their
leaders have finally begun to work with Israel, and increased
cooperation with America. They know that they have invariably been
defeated by Israel and America in every armed conflict, whether in the
Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the fight against ISIS, the war in
Iraq, or on the Afghanistan battlefield. Our
superiority enrages them, as does our refusal to convert to Islam, just
as our refusal to convert to Christianity fueled so much Jew-hatred
throughout the centuries.
