Richard Silverstein: David Yerushalmi, Jew as White Supremacist

28 February 2011 General 7 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

(Richard Silverstein)

I know. It sounds too preposterous to be true. But read on.

Earlier today, Fadi of Kabobfest linked in a comment here to a Muslim Link post by Tariq Nelson about David Yerushalmi’s “infiltration” of a Virginia mosque for the purposes of unmasking its alleged jihadi agenda. Since I know Yerushalmi based on his strident Israeli nationalist views I was having a hard time crediting Nelson’s claims that he espoused “white supremacist” views.

But Larry Cohler Esses has set me straight and proven that a Jew can indeed by a white supremacist as proven by this Yerushalmi essay in Conservative Voice:

While our constitutional republic was specifically designed to insulate our national leaders from the masses, democracy has seeped up through the cracks and corroded everything we once deemed sacred about our political order. Prior to the Civil War, the electorate, essentially white Christian men, had access to local government. It was here, where men shared an intimacy born of family ties, shared religious beliefs, and common cultural signposts, that representative government was meant to touch our daily lives. With the social and cultural revolution which followed the emancipation, man’s relationship to political order was radically nationalized and democratized. Today, there is simply no basis to resist “democracy” and the “open society”.

Note Yerushalmi’s distinction between national and local government. White men were supposed to enjoy democracy only in New England style town meetings with their neighbors, while the affairs of state were to be handled by national leaders free from the messy pressures of the unwashed “masses.” And you’ll notice who Yerushalmi blames for the deterioration in our body politic, Abe Lincoln, the Great Emancipator. That’s right, letting the darkies get the vote was the worst thing those “white Christian men” ever let happen to the Republic.

Fadi also turned me on to some eye-popping Yerushalmi legislative proposals regarding the Arab-American “menace:”

WHEREAS Islam requires all Muslims to actively and passively support the replacement of America’s constitutional republic with a political system based upon Shari’a.

Whereas, adherence to Islam as a Muslim is prima facie evidence of an act in support of the overthrow of the US Government through the abrogation, destruction, or violation of the US Constitution and the imposition of Shari’a on the American People.

HEREFORE, IT IS RESOLVED THAT: It shall be a felony punishable by 20 years in prison to knowingly act in furtherance of, or to support the, adherence to Shari’a.

The Congress of the United States of America shall declare the US at war with the Muslim Nation.

If you spend any time at a Yerushalmi site you feel like you’ve traveled through the Looking Glass where every notion about this country you ever cherished becomes reviled and every notion you ever detested about this country is lauded. It is definitely “through a glass, darkly.”

I’ve wondered whether Yerushalmi’s background as a Ukrainian Jewish immigrant could figure in this. [UPDATE: Yerushalmi is NOT an immigrant but born in the U.S. His ancestors were born in the Ukraine. My errror was due to the misunderstanding of a comment my informant made about Yerushalmi’s background.] Observers of the Israeli political scene note that many Russian immigrants entering politics are either outright anti-democratic or so far right as to be virtually anti-democratic. Avigdor Lieberman is one example and Natan Sharansky is not far behind. Something in the Communist system has so warped these people’s minds toward democracy that they view it as a debased system, a trick designed to harm their interests. Of course, Russia is also known for its right-wing racialist politics and neo-Nazi activism. Witness Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

  1. Thank you. Keep up the good work. May God bless all those who bring out the truth and fight falsehoods.

  2. The man clearly needs a review of history. In the USA & in Nazi Germany, Jews were not considered to bew “white”.

  4. I’m afraid that Mr. Silverstein is either sadly naïve or has some hidden agenda. To me he’s a little like the guy greasing the wheels of the Trojan horse so that it can be rolled into the city.

    I knew virtually nothing about Islam until September 10th (that’s the 10th with a capital TENTH) 2001.

    On the 9th, I was having somewhat of a spirited discussion with my son who asked me “How do you know that the Bible (Tanach) is the Word of God. How do you not know that the Quran isn’t the Word of God?”

    For the sake of objectivity I got on the web the next day (the 10th) and did some research on Islam. After looking over a number of introductory web-sites, I quickly concluded that “whoever takes Islam seriously is fundamentally cruel.”

    I remember offering up a prayer… “God… I’m just a spoiled Jewish ‘kid’ from the North Side of Chicago, I’m not prepared for this!” God’s response was not exactly audible, but, nevertheless, in light of what happened the next day, with two planes flying into the twin towers, one plane flying into the Pentagon, nearly 3000 innocent lives lost including those forced to choose between jumping to their deaths or perishing in the flames, I feel the events that led me to do the research that I did on Sept 10th (one day earlier) was not exactly coincidental.

    Since then, I’ve learned much more about Islam, but have also had many conversations and encounters with Muslims. Many of them have been quite nice ‘though I have never said anything to reinforce or encourage their presumption of Islam’s claim to veracity. I would argue, however, that those who are nice are not so because of Islam but IN SPITE of Islam. Others, to be quite honest, I sense, are carrying a facade (Islam allows one to lie as long as it gives one an advantage over ones enemies – check it out for yourself). Most of them really don’t know or are in a state of denial about what the tenants of their faith are.

    I do think that I would be more inclined to let my guard down towards Islam if a FATWA had been declared renouncing violent Jihad. But that hasn’t happened as it? Furthermore, however, some of the practices of Sharia law take on, not a religious, but a civil tone and also happen to be very sadistic.

    I’m afraid that until such a FATWA is declared, I guess Mr. Silverstein continues to grease the skids of the Trojan Horse.

    Allow me to close with a quote from the Bible… “My people perish because of lack of knowledge”(Hosea 4:6)

  5. Islam is a religion of peace. Though all other religions too urged people to do good, but i have never seen a religion that’s so much perfected by God like Islam. Mr Benyamin! You said that Islam is a religion that asked its followers to tell lies, can you please point out where the Qur’an or any authentic saying of our beloved prophet muhammad (pbuh) preached that the muslims should tell lies?

  6. @Binyomin,

    We’ll talk about fatwas tailor made to please Jews like you when Judeofascists publically denounce milhemet mitzna(Jewish holy war) and go back to East Europe and other places they came from, ending their occupation of Palestine, renouncing all claims to it. Why would you be offended at 3000 dead on 911 since “israelis” were caught red handed dancing when the twin towers were hit? I could go into more detail, but the fact of the matter nobody with any iota of intelligence believes the “official” story. Let us also not forget that judeofascists were responsible for inventing the lie that Iraq had WMD, and responsible the killings of over a million Iraqis in the last 8 years, the same group of criminals are now trying to get America in a war with Iran for non-existent nukes.
    It’s 2011, not 5000 BC.

  7. A note to Aliyu luqman, and DrM

    I did not respond earlier because I just now saw that I had been responded to.

    To Aliyu luqman – You asked for chapter and verse concerning when lying is encouraged. I site the following, only as a mere example. I assure you… there are many more.

    Imam Abu Hammid Ghazali says: “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible.” (Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, The Reliance of the Traveller, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, amana publications, 1997, section r8.2, page 745)

    To DrM – There are two reasons why you should be nice to me. 1. If you want to be my friend you should be nice to me. 2. If you want to deceive me and make me believe that you are my friend so that I let my guard down when you attack me, you should be nice to me.

    Your response which was arrogant, hostile and stereotyping (you know ABSOLUTELY nothing about me), only provides fodder for my premise that Islam is NOT a religion of peace. Hence my guard is not down. I must say, you are a rather poor ambassador for the “religion of peace”.

    Your penchant for historical revisionism makes debate with you fruitless. According to Suras 2:136, 4:136; and 29:46, it would behoove you to give serious examination to the Bible seeing that Muhammad, himself, endorsed it. It may just dispel some of your historic revisionism. But then again, you can always fall back on the “Bible is Corrupted” argument. But that holds no water because my retort would be for you to provide me with the specifics as to where, how and when it was corrupted. Also, in light of the fact that the last book of the Old Testament pre-dates the Quran by over 1000 years and the last book over the New Testament pre-dates the Quran by over 500 years, I think that the burden of proof that the “Bible is Corrupted” would fall on you.

    I end by saying that God really does love both of you. But He gives you the free will to love Him in return.

    By best regards,


Have your say!
