Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion Are True: The Cat Is Out Of The Bag
Hat tip: Fluid Mind
About the singer/writer from his Myspace site:
Rav Shmuel is a rabbi who drinks beer and plays original compositions on his guitar. He has a beard and sidelocks and he loves The Dead. He does not see an inconsistency between these two identities. Rather, he thinks of Judaism and music as complementary and often coalescing tools and methods for communication (blah blah blah).
Rav, who has taught Jewish Philosophy and Talmud at various Universities, has also toured the country with Gefiltefish, his first stateside band, playing sold-out parking lots before and after Phish shows. He does not play klezmer, although he does make the odd Maimonidean joke. He thinks of himself as a Rock Star.
Speaking of the Protocols of the the Elders of Zion, PBS just aired a program, Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century. I found it pretty fair when it came to the history of the Israeli conflict. It was only an hour show, so it was difficult to cover everything properly. I was slightly taken aback by the emphasis on blaming Christians as the root source of Arab/Muslim hatred of the Jews. I think that is oversimplifying things a tad.
They did make the Arab nations out as hate mongering assmonkeys for their collective acceptance of the Protocols, and their perpetual teaching of it. It must be humiliating for 350 million Arabs constantly losing to 5 million Jews, so they must cling to conspiracy theories and known forgeries to keep their egos up.
Of course, Paliphile viewers found the PBS show to be extremely biased. But what else is new. Historical fact and the truth is not on the side of Paliphiles.
