Jewish supremacism is the belief that the Jews are religiously, morally, intellectually, and/or genetically superior and therefore should control or rule. The religion of Judaism itself claims that the Jews are a people “chosen” by God ahead of the rest of humanity.
Jewish supremacism: My Awakening to the Jewish Question
One of the most prominent books on Jewish supremacism is Jewish Supremacism: My Awakening to the Jewish Question by David Duke. The book argues that there is a powerful Jewish supremacist element in Judaism and Zionism that is great threat to both non-Jews and Jews. Duke uses direct quotes from the Talmud, other major Jewish sources such as the Jewish Encyclopedia, major Jewish magazines, and Jewish leaders to argue the existence of a group of hateful, anti-Gentile Jewish supremacists that may also boast of a Jewish control over media and politics.
For example, in the book Duke quotes a former head of National Affairs for the largest Jewish organization in the United States. “‘I’ll confess it at least, like thousands of other typical kids of my generation I was reared as a Jewish nationalist, even a quasi-separatist. Every summer for two months of ten formative years… I attended Jewish summer camp. There, each morning, I saluted a foreign flag, dressed in a uniform reflecting its colours, sang a foreign national anthem, learned a foreign language… and was taught the superiority of my people to the ‘Gentiles’ who oppressed us. ‘We were taught to view non-Jews as… people less sensitive, intelligent and moral than ourselves.’”
Contributing to Jewish supremacism is argued to be that in every conflict with Gentiles, Jews are always portrayed as completely innocent while Gentiles are portrayed as totally evil. The main Jewish holidays are dominated by the recounting of Gentile persecutions, and the Holocaust has achieved almost a religious significance in Jewish life. Any legitimate criticism of Jewish supremacism is argued to be labelled “antisemitism” by Jewish supremacists who define the usage of the term.
Duke argues that one Jewish supremacist strategy is fostering Jewish supremacist thinking among Jews while at the same time working to break down the group loyalty of the Gentiles among whom they live.
The book describes a Jewish supremacist double standard. Many Jewish leaders have proclaimed the need for Jews to preserve the Jewish racial genotype. Israel will grant instant citizenship to an atheist Jew from New York, but forbids Palestinians who were born in Israel to return, and forbids marriages between Jews and Gentiles. At the same time Jews have relentlessly worked to break down the immigration laws of other nations. “While they preach multiculturalism and diversity for almost every other country in which they dwell, they themselves support and expect Americans to support a Zionist State, dedicated exclusively to the Jewish people, religion and culture.”
Duke also states that major Jewish sources “boast of their takeover and control of Hollywood, the news media and the most sensitive part of the Government of the United States. For instance, Duke quotes a major Israeli newspaper bragging about the fact that Jews loyal to Israel make up seven out of the eleven members of the secretive and sensitive National Security Council (NSC).” The media control is argued to be used to support Jewish supremacist goals and to censor and label criticism of Jewish supremacism as “antisemitism.
Jewish supremacist thinking is argued to have contributed to a number of crimes against gentiles (including by Israel against the United States in attempts to start wars against the enemies of Israel) as well as more subtle harmful actions (for example, Sigmund Freud is argued to have been a secret Jewish supremacist who thought of himself as a Hannibal destroying the foundations of the Christian church and the European family as Hannibal had sacked Rome).
A review states that “Duke goes at length to point out that not all Jews are supremacists, and that the supremacists not only endanger the Gentile world but threaten innocent Jews by exposing them to an inevitably hostile Gentile reaction.”
Israel and Zionism
One aspect of Jewish supremacism is Zionism where Jews argue that they have more right to the “Promised Land” than other peoples. This including Jews who have not had ancestors living in Palestine for thousands of years and having this right before Palestinians with ancestors living in Palestine for thousands of years.
Israel was created in part through ethnic cleansing and expulsion of non-Jews. The non-Jews who were expelled/fled are not allowed to return. The remaining non-Jews are in practice considered to be second-class citizens. Any Jew anywhere in the world has the right to migrate to Israel and the right to citizenship.
Neoconservatism, the Israel lobby, and Christian Zionists
The neoconservative movement and the Israel lobby more generally has gained great influence over U.S. foreign policy and this is used for purposes such as supporting the United States entering into wars with the enemies of Israel. The Israeli Lobby is supported by Jewish Zionists and Christian Zionists. Whether Christian Zionists in general consider Jews to be superior to other people is questionable but they regardless support Zionism and Israel for religious reasons such as the return of the Jews to the Holy Land being in accordance with Biblical prophecy. Some Christian Zionists may believe in dual-covenant theology which in effect considers Jews and certain non-Jews to be superior to other people.
Urban vs. rural
Jewish supremacist thinking has been argued to sometimes be masked as urban dwellers (like most Jews) being superior to rural dwellers (unlike most Jews). Some Jews are argued to associate rural America with “nativism, anti-Semitism, nationalism, and fascism as well as with anti-intellectualism and provincialism; the urban was associated antithetically with ethnic and cultural tolerance, with internationalism, and with advanced ideas.”
Jews were very influential in the communist states and some crimes committed by communists may have been influenced by Jewish supremacist thinking and hatred of perceived enemies. Such influence may have been indirect such as Ilya Ehrenburg creating anti-German propaganda describing Germans as inferior and contributing to large scale crimes against German civilians.
Jewish influence on cultural Marxism has been argued to be large and in part caused by certain Jews seeing Western and Christian culture as inferior and as causing antisemitism.
Some major news media sectors support the more neoconservative views while others support more cultural Marxist views. Regardless, criticisms of Jewish influence or Jewish supremacist thinking is largely absent.
Quotes by Jews
Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat…Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.
—Ovadia Yosef, Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel, 2010.
When we sink, we become a revolutionary proletariat, the subordinate officers of all revolutionaly parties; and at the same time, when we rise, there rises also our terrible power of the purse.
—Theodor Herzl, The Jewish State, 1896.
There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.
—Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, The King’s Torah, 2009.
The Bolshevik Revolution and some of its aftermath represented, from one perspective, Jewish revenge. During the heyday of the Cold War, American Jewish publicists spent a lot of time denying that—as 1930s anti-Semites claimed—Jews played a disproportionately important role in Soviet and world Communism. The truth is until the early 1950s Jews did play such a role, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. In time Jews will learn to take pride in the record of the Jewish Communists in the Soviet Union and elsewhere. It was a species of striking back.
—Norman Cantor, The Jewish Experience, 1996.
Let’s be honest with ourselves, here, fellow Jews. We do control the media. We’ve got so many dudes up in the executive offices in all the big movie production companies it’s almost obscene. Just about every movie or TV show, whether it be “Tropic Thunder” or “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” is rife with actors, directors, and writers who are Jewish. Did you know that all eight major film studios are run by Jews?
