The Wandering Who (Paperback)

By (author): Gilad Atzmon

An investigation of Jewish identity politics and Jewish contemporary ideology using both popular culture and scholarly texts. Jewish identity is tied up with some of the most difficult and contentious issues of today. The purpose in this book is to open many of these issues up for discussion. Since Israel defines itself openly as the ‘Jewish State’, we should ask what the notions of ’Judaism’, ‘Jewishness’, ‘Jewish culture’ and ‘Jewish ideology’ stand for. Gilad examines the tribal aspects embedded in Jewish secular discourse, both Zionist and anti Zionist; the ‘holocaust religion’; the meaning of ‘history’ and ‘time’ within the Jewish political discourse; the anti-Gentile ideologies entangled within different forms of secular Jewish political discourse and even within the Jewish left. He questions what it is that leads Diaspora Jews to identify themselves with Israel and affiliate with its politics. The devastating state of our world affairs raises an immediate demand for a conceptual shift in our intellectual and philosophical attitude towards politics, identity politics and history.

    I can never remember, are the Nazis the “chosen people” and the Jews the “master race” or is it the other way around? Good show. I will add his book to my list to be read. Eddie.

  2. Meria says:

    Chosen by who? The reptilians? lol Ego-centrics aren’t limited to Americans….

    What a great interview. His point about all of us who supposedly live in a democracy being complicit in the horrors that happen is a good one, but as happened in Nazi Germany, even those of us with a conscience and a conviction that so much evil is being done in our name (and with our tax dollars), we feel helpless to actually “do” anything. We are all kept so very busy keeping our heads down and hoping that “they” won’t come for us. Unfortunately, “they” ARE coming for us, as you point out every single day, in every single show.

    I could almost all-caps yell about this one. On the one hand a thoughtful criticism of the political dementia of his national origin and on the other hand from a global scale perspective dangerously avoiding the grossly evident. Six million (80% of their designation) freakishly worked to death as slaves is not the same. Edward Safranskis’ comment is a more humorous effort at exposing the hypocrisy, however my Scottish heritage as a Canadian allows a more forceful WA. So here we are in 2012 with Berlusconi as the incarnation of Mussolini looking for his spirit spouse Hitler or some combination of idiots similar to WW1 for WW3. He hides in buffoonery and humor but let’s get real. Berlusconi is 1000 times richer and greedier than the other G8 leaders combined. At scale the other leaders are the size of his finger tips. As the THE most expert daemonic freak he simply wants a sh/t load of murder to satisfy his desire of being as rich and powerful in his next incarnation. A world war is his necessary distraction. Please don’t think that because he’s not in office now that it’s over. For other readers, parliamentary politics allows more than two terms.
    I would encourage you to seek out the criticism in Italy from Sabina Guzzanti, Daniele Luttazzi, and Beppe Grillo. Beppe has an English blog site so he might be able to offer an english interview.
    A thousand times… so big that most can’t see it!!! Still a fan of your efforts Meria, Let’s raise some Heller.
    PS for a little good news… about 200,000 demonstrators for the recent earth day in Montreal.

  7. Meria says:

    Great news about Montreal! WW3 is on deck with or without Berlusconi. Send me Beppe Grillo’s site if you have it.
