Editor’s Note: “Is the Holocaust a suitable subject for satire?” I asked myself seriously, before deciding to accept this new article from satirical spoof writer Pandora Pushkin. In view of the fact that Christianity appears to be fair game for blaspheming Jews — “Christ sucks” (pornographer Al Goldstein) and “I hope the Jews DID kill Christ! I’d fucking do it again in a second!“ (comedienne Sarah Silverman) — I saw no reason why Holocaustianity, the new world religion, should be exempt from criticism or satirical treatment. Provided it’s done with good taste, of course.
DISCLAIMER (21 November, 2014)
Lasha Darkmoon, who wrote this article over two years ago, has asked me to delete it. I have refused, partly because it has already been republished on other websites and partly because I believe her decision to distance herself from the article is based on emotion rather than reason.
Soon after the publication of the article, Lasha received an email from Ingrid Zundel ticking her off for writing the article. Holocaust revisionism was a serious subject, Ingrid argued, and it should be treated in a serious manner. Lasha was bringing the subject into disrepute by her satirical treatment of the Holocaust. Her tone was a flippant one, and she had made an error of judgment to pen such a spoofy article. So said Ingrid.
Lasha apologized to Ingrid for any offense she had given and left it at that, but later she began to think. What if Ingrid was right?
Now, two years after penning the article, Lasha has decided that Ingrid was in fact right. She wishes she had never written it. “I am now deeply ashamed I wrote this article,” Lasha tells me. “Please delete it.”
Well, I have decided to let the article stand here for the time being, though I may change my mind later. It seems to me that the article is written with verve and panache and that it carries a lot of punch. It is also very informative and makes a number of important points. So I feel it would be a big mistake to delete it.
As far as I’m concerned, what is done is done — and you cannot undo it by shedding tears later.
Holcaustianity, the world’s newest religion, is now doing its best to replace Christianity in America, Europe and other English-speaking countries. It has been largely successful in its endeavors, having made an impact even on the Vatican where it has persuaded many holy fathers of the Church to ditch Christianity in favor of a new religion invented at Auschwitz. About time too! We’ve had enough of Christianity and its silly Ten Commandments.
Speaking for myself, I wish to make up my own mind about what is right or wrong. Yessir, I’m not going to take instructions from any killjoy Pope!
Here is Pope Benedict himself, paying his respects to the new Supergod at Auschwitz, disguised as a tripod.
And here, in case you are interested, is the swimming pool at Auschwitz which the Supreme Pontiff visited also on his well-publicized visit to Poland.
In this hallowed spot the Holy Father may have paused a few brief moments to offer up a prayer for all those millions of martyrs—6 million at the last count—who perished in the furnaces of Auschwitz, but were probably allowed to refresh themselves with a little swim before they died.
This would happen, I should imagine, in two circumstances: (a) If the Nazi camp guard on duty was particularly kind-hearted or in a good mood, which was obviously almost never, since no Nazi camp guard I have ever heard of has ever been known to be kind-hearted or in a good mood; (b) if the camp was short of Zyklon B gas, or if there was a need to economize and save this precious substance for delousing inmates’ clothing—in which case inmates were led to the pool and pushed in, being left to swim around there until they drowned. If they tried to climb out of the pool, no problem!—they were just kicked back into the water by one of those hobnailed jackboots the evil Nazis wore at all times, even in bed. So I am told by an informed source in Tel Aviv.
For more details on the swimming pool at Auschwitz, see this scary article by evil Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson. You can see his blood-covered face here. This is what courageous Jewish activists did to him when Mr Faurisson foolishly refused to admit that 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust.
The Holocaust, according to that other evil Holocaust denier Germar Rudolf—who spent only four years in prison for his shocking thought crimes, has its own high priests: the Jewish people themselves. These constitute, collectively, the New World Messiah whose name is King Khazar.
King Khazar did not die on the cross. Instead, he fragmented himself into a myriad life forms and lives today in the minds and bodies of his countless devotees, known in the vulgar language of the masses as “Holocaust Survivors.”
These minor deities live all over the world, some in New York, London, Paris and other cosmopolitan centers, but most of them pursue their earthly existence in Tel Aviv. Here they live austere lives of prayer and sacrifice to King Khazar, all their material needs being taken care of by generous checks from Swiss and German banks.
When they are not engaged in killing the Palestinians in a blood sacrifice to King Khazar, they are to be found sitting by their luxury swimming pools in Judea and Samaria enjoying the afternoon sunshine and the soothing hum of bulldozers demolishing houses in the distance . . . until their lives are suddenly terminated by deadly rockets shot at them by evil Hezbollah or Hamas—terrorist organizations which will soon be operating in New York and Los Angeles, London and Paris, unless and until America in its wisdom decides to exterminate them. So my informed source in Tel Aviv tells me.
Hollocaustianity, as you might expect, has its Devil. Every bit as evil as Christianity’s equivalent, he has replaced Satan as the most feared and hated figure ever to have existed. With a mad glint in his eye, and a frightening toothbrush mustache garnishing his upper lip, this Demon in human guise received his incarnation on earth in April 1889 at an inn in Ranshofen called the Gasthof zum Pommer in the thrice-cursèd anti-Semitic kingdom of Austro-Hungary. He is known today in Vatican circles, where everyone is still forced to speak ecclesiastical Latin, as Adolphus Hitlerus Abominabilis.
Icon of Evil Adolphus Hitlerus Abominabilis (top figure, not bottom).
Mention his name, dear reader, in hushed terms if you dare. Better still, don’t mention it at all, but leave it to Devil Worshippers such as David Irving and his brood of evil demons to do so.
The High priests of the new world religion are the orthodox Holocaust historians. Praised be their names, for their research has been mighty and marvelous and has unearthed many mindblowing facts: namely, that six million Jews died in gas chambers at Auschwitz, Chelmno, Majdanek, Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka and elsewhere, on the express orders of Adolphus Hitlerus Abominabilis and his evil henchmen in human form, known in Vatican circles as Jackbootici Horribiles—in simple English, “the Horrible Jackbooted Ones”. (i.e., Nazis.)
Unlike the Christian martyrs, these latter-day saints were neither crucified nor thrown to the lions in the Circus Maximus. Instead, they were tortured to death in cruel experiments by Josef Mengele (“Dr Death”), buried alive in ditches, burnt alive at the stake, asphyxiated in gas chambers, and finally turned into lampshades.
Typical lampshade? No way! DNA tests reveal that this lampshade was made of genuine human skin, probably one of millions made by evil Nazis and sold them to unsuspecting department stores all over the world. (See here)
The new world religion, Hollocaustianity, also has its temples: these are known as Holocaust Museums. They are being built now in ever increasing quantities thanks to the generosity of taxpayers (Jewish as well as non-Jewish) whose earnings are being earmarked not only for the construction of these grim edifices in honor of King Khazar but for new wars being fought on his behalf in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Islamic countries such as Pakistan.
Here in Afpak, incidentally, even the women and children are so evil that they need to be destroyed by deadly drones from the sky, known in Vatican circles as Arma Ignavi (“The Coward’s Weapon”). Wedding parties are obliterated. Ambulances speeding to rescue the dying are blown to smithereens. Even mothers scrabbling in the ruins to pull their mangled children from the rubble are blown off the face of the earth. Why? Because they are all terrorists who refuse to worship King Khazar, the Jewish God of War whose worship in America has now become obligatory.
These lethal drone weapons (Arma Ignavi) are operated by courageous American warriors in shirtsleeves (sometimes known as “chickenhawks” but more often as “inglourious basterds”) who sit in front of computer screens in distant America playing an exciting new war game known as “Collateral Damage”.
Yea, the New World Religion also hath its “Day of Remembrance” (27 January), on which day the world is solemnly besought to Remember The Six Million Who Died. It has its saints and its martyrs: the victims who die and the victims who survive and today receive the holy eucharist—the Bread of Life—known as “Holocaust reparations”.
It has its prophets too: noble eyewitnesses such Elie Wiezel and Binjamin Wilkomirski, both known and honored for their unswerving devotion to the Truth.
It has its patron saint, Anne Frank, known in Vatican circles as Puella Pulchra Ballpointica, the Beautiful Girl with the Ballpoint Pen.
PUELLA PULCHRA BALLPOINTICA, the “Beautiful Girl with the Ballpoint Pen,” the only saint in history to travel into the future to borrow a ballpoint pen and then relocate back to the past in order to complete her famous manuscript, “The Diary of Anne Frank”.
Hollocaustianity has its pilgrims, its publishing houses, its clergy, its laity. It even has its Inquisition in sixteen countries, where denial of its sacred tenets are serious crimes resulting in imprisonment: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Switzerland.
A shocking email appeared in my inbox this morning which almost made my eyes pop from their sockets. It contained this appalling quotation from evil Holocaust Denier Germar Rudolf, actually arguing that Israel has exploited the Holocaust to carry out a genocidal program of its own against the Palestinians. Look at his picture on the left. Who would have thought this pretty little boy (age 8 in the picture) would grow up one day to become such an evil monster of Thought Crime?
“This new religion,” he raves, “serves many Jews in general and the Apartheid State of Israel in particular as a sword and shield in their interactions with gentiles and foreign nations. To prevent a new “Holocaust,” Israel is allowed to commit any cruelty, wage any war, violate any international law it likes. They get away with (almost) anything. But this new superstition also serves many other nations as a bogeyman to make their own populations accept wars. First they accuse a foreign leader of a Holocaust – committed or planned – then they start the war. It works shockingly well.” (To verify this appalling quote, click HERE).
Here is the evil Thought Criminal again, age 39, doing his best to look charming and acceptably human. He fails! Note the Satanic smile and the white-hot glow of hellfire in his evil eyes. This monster of Historical Distortionism has recently been interviewed by the equally insane Dr David Duke on the Jeff Rense Radio satellite network that goes all over the world. If you want to hear these fiends in human form discuss the new world religion, Holocaustianity, this is your chance.
Don’t miss this incredibly EVIL SHOW (55 mins.) which breaks new ground in THOUGHT CRIME!
Nine years have already passed since an indescribable crime against humanity, the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, was systematically begun. Now in its ninth year , a government exists which calls itself a worker-and-peasant government—but not one true worker or farmer has ever sat on it. For nine years, torture has been used in the name of democracy as an official instrument of the state. And in the name of socialism millions of upright individuals have been murdered, put to death through starvation, or banished from home and hearth to every distant part of the globe.
In the name of the proletariat the Russian people has been subjugated by rank foreigners, their speech has been silenced, and their bodies sent—to the cheers of the [Jewish] Third International — into mass graves.
An old Russian expression says: “There are never more lies told than before a war and after a hunt.” And in point of fact the Great War [WW1] never had a true armistice; it never really ended. And the hunt for more human skulls — of course only Christian and Aryan skulls will do — continues in accordance with a sinister and systematic plan. And thus the great lie blooms forth, in effect a form of worship of the Father of Lies, by that international scum calling itself the Bolsheviks.
Mundus vult decipi! — the world wants to be deceived! It believes Soviet lies and fairy tales and even participates in this sick comedy, sending delegations of well-known people, leftists of course, incapable of understanding the Russian language, and sympathetic to boot with the goals of the Third International!
[The 3rd Internationale was the third great convention meeting held by ultra-radical Jews and Marxists in 1919 to coordinate Communist activities worldwide.]
Off these foreign guests go to Soviet Russia to “study” the situation. These splendid chaps have no idea what Russia was like before the Bolsheviks—and what it could have become without them in the meantime! On the other hand, the Soviet Union’s new friends show great knowledge and appreciation for our Russian caviar and vodka! The caviar is good, the vodka burns like fire going down, and in the brain-fog of democratic good will one somehow misses the rivers of blood, the dashed brain fragments, and the slithering clatter of millions of slaves’ chains.
And so internationalist democracy celebrates its rites of sacrifice. The Christian lamb is slaughtered, and Annias and Caiaphas [Jewish leaders in the Sanhedrin who condemned Jesus to death], today representing international stock market capital, are the guests of honor at the feast.
The four Jews—Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky—who helped to destroy the Christian Russia of the tsars and replace it with an atheistic Communism in which 66 million Russian Christians were put to death in the gulags run by the cheka.
2. The systematic destruction of Russia
The old Russia no longer exists.
In its place we have a vast desert: its intelligentsia 90% annihilated, its middle class throttled, its working class made serfs once again — but this time serfs in state-owned factories, workers who just for using the word “strike” can be put up against the wall! As for the farmer, now he is a mere beast of burden, a camel in the Soviet-made Sahara, laboring without question for his Jewish exploiters and nearly without pay.
For a non-initiate it must be entirely incomprehensible how such a mighty empire, seemingly in one night of revolution, could be set aflame at all four corners and destroyed.
However, in one night it did not happen.
The events of March 1917 — Kerensky’s middle-class overthrow of the tsar — and of November 1917 — the Bolshevik putsch against Kerensky’s government — were only the visible result of years of patient, mole-like undermining activities by the Jewish Internationale: a work which did not begin in the criminal minds of Marx, Kautsky and Engels, but instead in an earlier alliance of Jewry with the higher grades of world Freemasonry.
These lofty “idealists” have tortured and killed, in the name of Russia’s workers and peasants — and according to their very own statistics — the following numbers of victims in the first four years of the glorious Russian Revolution: 28 bishops of the Church, 1,215 priests and 6,000 monks. Why? Just because they were bishops, priests and monks, and because they believed in God — who is of course merely a disposable middle-class superstition.
Next come 8,800 Christian doctors and their aides. Why? Because they represented non-Jewish middle-class medicine.
Now come the officers: 54,650 army and naval officers, 10,500 police officers (lieutenant-rank and above) and 48,500 lower-ranking policemen. And for what reason? Because they were military and police officers, and we all know that “militarism” is no longer permissible for any nationalistic and Aryan-conscious white people. It is only allowed to Red bandits, who call themselves proletarians, to dig the real proletariat a mass grave.
Then there are 260,000 flag-loyal soldiers of the old army, all now executed. But even this statistic is trifling. Now come the intelligentsia: teachers, professors, engineers, building contractors, writers and judges — especially judges, because these were the most dangerous for a state ruled by convicted felons.
To them let us add lawyers, district attorneys and all the college-educated occupations — to reach the number of 361,825 murdered members of our most mentally demanding professions. I will not even tarry over our annihilated class of large landowners, consisting of 12,950 persons.
And when someone asks me how the Russian intelligentsia can bear the Bolshevik yoke, I always answer that the Russian intelligentsia is either literally six feet under or in exile, and that the tiny remainder left over has suffered such a blood-letting and systematic humiliation through the communist steamroller that they have forfeited every last bit of self-esteem and personal honor.
Finally, we come to the modest numbers of workers and peasants executed by the worker-and-peasant state. They amount to only 192,350 workers and 815,000 peasants. All these figures are official statistics published by the Cheka [forerunner of the KGB] and printed in easily obtainable Bolshevik newspapers during this period when the anti-communist White Russian forces were fighting Trotsky and the Red Army, [1917-1921].
All these facts can be verified in the complete volumes of information or excerpts published in 1922 by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kingdom of Serbia, the only country in Europe which is fighting mercilessly against the disease of communism.
Even this enormous number of casualties is small compared to the mentally ill persons now running around free in Soviet Russia — four million eight hundred thousand of them. But this is no surprise. Even the old Russia did not have enough sanatoria and hospitals for them. Now the whole country has become a madhouse.
The murders continue and the blood flows on, albeit only Christian and Aryan blood.
When during the 1922 Famine, 30,000 human beings were dying every day, Jewish leader Trotsky made the sarcastic remark: “All the better — look at the paperwork that will save us now!”
3. Tsars assassinated by the Jews
After Nicholas I, his son Alexander II mounted the throne, a true friend of his people. In 1861 he abolished serfdom and gave the peasants land. This reform happened through the mir arrangement of village communities — an institution far closer to true and sincere communism than the capitalistic, tax-exploitative system we see in Soviet Russia today.
This same tsar, Alexander II, who in 1864 gave his people a whole new trial procedure for their court system — then the fairest and most progressive in Europe — underwent seven attempts to assassinate him, until finally, in an eighth attempt perpetrated by Goldmann, Liebermann and Zuckermann — can anyone mistake their race? — successfully carried out the wishes of London.
[Great Britain was by this time in the control of the Jewish bankers of the City of London.]
Alexander II, the great benefactor of his nation, was dynamited on March 1, 1881 — the very day that he was to bestow on his country a new, constitutional form of government.
Alexander II was gone.
Alexander III now became tsar. With respect to this monarch who preserved European peace, we Russians were all convinced that when he died in 1894, he had succumbed to a normal illness — in this case an acute kidney infection. How great was afterward our amazement when we learned — on the run, in exile, and from Jewish sources — that this tsar too had fallen victim to the criminal minds of the tribe of Judah.
The Jew Saltus exults over this fact in his book The Imperial Orgy, published in New York in 1920. In·his foam-mouthed delirium over the successful downfall of the Christian-Aryan world he explains in his book how the Jews, working with the Entente powers — England, France, the U.S. and Italy — got rid of the tsars one after the other.
He further relates that, at the same time as Russian churches were praying for the health of the tsar, he was being cursed in the synagogues.
To the bedside of the sick tsar his personal physician, Zakharin, was summoned. Zakharin, a perfectly good Russian name, and yet — a Jew. When he arrived to see the tsar in Livadiya, he had the medicine all ready for him in his vest pocket. The kind of medicine is easy to imagine: a one-way ticket into the next world.
After the trusting tsar had swallowed the medication and was rolling in pain on his bed, Zakharin bent over-him — according to Saltus — with a diabolical grin on his face.
The tsar choked out the words “Who are you?”
Zakharin’s answer: “I am a Jew!” And with enormous chutzpah, he then turned to the empress and the tsar’s ministers and said: “Not to worry, his majesty is only talking in a fever!”
Then he bent over the dying man and grinned at him again: “You are breathing your last breath—and we have won!”
This comes straight from the Jew Saltus in his book The Imperial Orgy.
4. The murder of millions of Christians by the Cheka
And then the Russian Revolution came.
Who were these friends of the common people who in the name of freedom, equality, and democracy began annihilating the Christian-Aryan population?
Undoubtedly there were among them some true idealists who really believed that they could use murder and manslaughter, robbery and theft, to make a happier world and a new paradise of equality. The well-known result, however, was a living hell consisting of hunger, deprivation, despair and an equality only in one’s right to be murdered by the Jewish-controlled Cheka [forerunner of the KGB].
The word “Cheka” is not only an acronym in Russian for “Special Commission for Fighting Counter-Revolution,” but also a Yiddish expression for animal slaughter. How fitting this expression! We Christians, who are called “goyim” or cattle, are in the Jewish view mere animals. Yahweh gave us human faces, however, so as to spare the Jews the distress of having servants who looked like animals. [Paraphrased]
The first provisional government [after the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II and just before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution] consisted exclusively of Freemasons of Romance-language initiation, from France or Italy, and funded by English money. The criminality of this “provisional government” knew no bounds, because it did the most despicable thing a government can do. It ignored the promises, purposes and ideals for which it was put in power—and for which it had overthrown the Tsar, head of state.
The nine months of this “government” was nothing but a gestation period, and horribly pregnant Russia gave birth to the miscarriage from hell on October 27, 1917. It can rightly be said that power was lying there on the street and the Bolsheviks merely picked it up. To provide a show for the friendly democracies abroad, there had to be street battles in Russia. And so the prime minister Kerensky, a half-Jew whose real name was Kirbis, meaning “pumpkin”, deliberately sent a battalion of women and young officer cadets into the jaws of a howling and murderous mob, where they were sadistically annihilated. Meanwhile Kerensky, dressed in a sailor suit, fled St. Petersburg.
Just before that, Kerensky had signed — for publicity reasons — an arrest warrant against the “traitor Trotsky” [Bronstein]. But when General Polovtsev showed up with his Cossacks in Trotsky’s apartment to arrest him, there sitting in a plush armchair with Trotsky was Kerensky, sipping a liqueur. He took the arrest warrant from the astonished general’s hand, theatrically tore it up, and sent the general on his way — a man who lacked the courage to simply arrest both these scum — for in a revolution, the first one to pick up his stick is on top.
In any case, the Russian and foreign publics were to be treated to scenes of urban warfare and bloodshed.
Aryan blood, of course.
5. Lenin, a syphilitic psychopath
The Mensheviks, or “majority people”, wanted a peaceful socialist welfare state and limited state ownership of industries as in Sweden. The Bolsheviks, or “minority people” [i.e., mostly Jews] wanted a reign of terror and total nationalization under Lenin and Trotsky.
The Mensheviks made only one condition: that Lenin explain himself with respect to allegations of theft from the Party. When the convention began and Lenin was challenged to give an account of himself, he stood up, stuck his hands in his pockets and proclaimed that his standing was so high in the party that he owed no one any answers.
When Lenin first arrived in Russia from Germany, he was already demented from untreated or poorly treated syphilis.
With this softening of the brain — a sort of gumming of the tissues — he was now fully qualified to pour his criminal fantasies into the ears of the foaming mob.
Russia already stood in flames, and the shabby gang of brigands were encouraged by Lenin’s slogan, “Rob back what they robbed from us!”
And so the mob hurled themselves upon the meager remains of Russian society. Under the joyful croakings of Jewry, Mother Russia was submerged.
The brain disease which afflicted Lenin continued to take its course. One insane idea after another issued forth from his government. The most renowned doctors in Germany boarded airplanes in an attempt to jerry-rig this decrepit swindler statesman, but he descended further and further into mental confusion. It is said that before his death he experienced a few shafts of mental light during which he crawled on all fours on the carpet and whimpered pitifully “Forgive me, Lord, forgive!”
Truly, truly the “international proletariat” can be proud: its leader a thief, its prophet a syphilitic, its greatest man a mass murderer.
Instead of leading mankind into the bright light above the clouds, it has jammed humanity down into the sewer, and it is no accident that his mausoleum —“Lenin’s tomb” — looks today like a public lavatory.
After the February Revolution of 1917, Nicholas II abdicated his throne and took refuge with his family in a house in Yekaterinburg. The Czar, his wife, his son, his four daughters, his servants and family doctor were all killed in the same room by the Bolsheviks on the night of July 17, 1918. It has since been confirmed that Lenin ordered the clandestine killings from Moscow.
Veteran British journalist Robert Wilton explains in his cult classic, The Fall of the Romanovs, how the murder of the Tsar and his family was orchestrated entirely by Jews:
“The whole record of Bolshevism in Russia is indeliby impressed with the stamp of an alien invasion. The murder of the Tsar, deliberately planned by the Jew Sverdlov, and carried out by the Jews Goloshchekin, Syromolotov, Safarov, Voikov, and Yorovsky, is the act not of the Russan people, but of this hostile invader.” (Robert Wilton, The Fall of the Romanovs, p.148).
6. Trotsky, another killer of Christians
Lenin’s great rival was a man who nearly exceeds him in treachery, viciousness and sadistic love of executions: the Jew Laibe Bronstein, who now calls himself Leo Trotsky.
This Bronstein-Trotsky character formerly was an ultra-radical writer of gall-dripping articles for Jewish newspapers. But long before the war he was an agent of the tsarist secret police in Vienna, reporting on Russian Jews who had deserted from the Russian armed forces.
Trotsky, a full-blooded Jew, betrayed his racial brothers to the Russian government for 150 gold crowns a month [about $200]. This perhaps tells us all we need to know about him.
He moved to St. Petersburg and founded a very bourgeois and capitalist freight-moving business. Later he got into the business of lopping off heads when it became more advantageous to be a communist. The whole communist system under Soviet Judea is shot through with bizarre values. While pure communism is said to promise a community of sharing, the slogan of Russian communism seems to be: “What’s mine is mine — and what’s yours is mine, too!”
“This anti-Bolshevik propaganda poster, dated to 1919, shows Leon Trotsky (born Lev Davidovich Bronstein) as a devil. Elements of the imagery reveal anti-Semitism: a popular anti-communist tactic was to overplay the role of Jews in the Russian Bolshevik Revolution.” (From a Zionist website, attempting to minimize the role played by Jews in the Bolshevik Revolution. See here).
The Chinese soldiers, presiding here over a mound of corpses and shooting Russian Christians to death, were hired mercenaries for the Jewish Bolsheviks. They did the Jews’ dirty work for them. Their reputation for sadistic torture on behalf of their Bolshevik employers was legendary. Thus they were responsible for introducing into Europe the infamous “rat torture”, a variation of which was to appear later as the horrendous climax of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four.
FAMOUS TROTSKY QUOTE (1917):
“We must turn Russia into a desert populated by white negroes upon whom we shall impose a tyranny such as the most terrible Eastern despots never dreamt of. The only difference is that this will be a left-wing tyranny, not a right-wing tyranny. It will be a red tyranny and not a white one. We mean the word ‘red’ literally, because we shall shed such floods of blood as will make all the human losses suffered in the capitalist wars pale by comparison. The biggest bankers across the ocean will work in the closest possible contact with us. If we win the revolution, we shall establish the power of Zionism upon the wreckage of the revolution’s funeral, and we shall became a power before which the whole world will sink to its knees. We shall show what real power is. By means of terror and bloodbaths, we shall reduce the Russian intelligentsia to a state of complete stupefaction and idiocy and to an animal existence.”
— From the ‘Memoirs of Aron Simanovich’, quoted in The Nature of Zionism by Vladimir Stepin, Moscow, 1993, and translated from Russian into English by Clive Lindhurst.
7. Fiendish tortures devised by the Jewish Cheka
For all time these names — the Jew Trotsky, the Pole Dzherzhinski, the Russian Moros, the Latvians Lazis and Peter — all these being the original creators of the infamous Cheka — will stand out in world history as mass murderers.
Even the bloodiest persecutions of Christians under Tiberius or Nero and the most grotesque tortures of the Spanish Inquisition under Torquemada — a converted Jew — pale by comparison with the indescribably gruesome deeds committed by the Jewish and Latvian run Cheka.
A whole shelf of books with both written and photographic documentation has been published on this theme.
I need mention only The Blood Intoxication of the Bolsheviks by Nilostonsky, The Battle Against Bolshevism by Avalov, The Plague over Russia by Albert Rosenberg, Soviet Russia by Katharina Haug-Houg, and The Cheka by Georg Popov.
[Here now are some of the gruesome tortures devised by the Jewish Cheka for its mostly Russian Christian victims.]
When the Reds occupied a city, they took hostages — such as people wearing ties or workers in their Sunday best. They stripped them naked and then bound onto the stomach of the murder victim an empty flower pot into which a ravenous, starving rat was placed. Through the small water hole in the base of the flower pot a red-hot iron rod was pushed to torment the rat and make him wild, causing him to try to burrow himself away from the rod — and deep into the abdomen of the horrified human victim.
They lined up other victims in military formation, then ordered the first row to place one hand upon a wooden table. A nail was driven through the hand into the wood. Then they cut a full circle around the wrist skin, drenched the hand in boiling water and pulled the hand and finger skin right off. This they called “making gloves”.
Interestingly, each torture chamber had its own special torture lady, always a Jewess or Latvian female, usually with a nickname such as “Dora, the glove maker” or “Rosa, the glove lady.”
It comes as no surprise to us to learn that the chief justice of a criminal court in Moscow is also a Jewess, Anya Glusmann, who is said to love pronouncing death sentences above all else, and, according to a fawning newspaper article about her, she loves flowers and perfume after a “hard day’s work.”
There is more: such as placing a man’s head on an anvil, then slowly exploding it using a huge iron hammer with ever-increasing weights.
Those fated to suffer the same death the following day were ordered to pick up the brain and bone pieces, the nerve tissue and blood which they witnessed flying around the room. When ordered to their work they were told: “You are digging your own grave. You must be happy that tomorrow your own kind will be picking up the pieces of your cadavers.”
As for men of the cloth, they would bring priests into a church, marry them with a sow or mare in a sarcastic ceremony and then nail them to the cross over the altar.
The bishop of Voronesh was plunged live into a giant kettle of boiling water and his monks were forced at revolver point to take spoonfuls of this “soup”.
High-ranking clergymen had their eyes gouged out, the tongue severed, and the ears sliced off.
Then they were buried alive.
Or their abdomen was opened with a knife and the first section of their intestines was nailed to a telephone pole. They were then forced to run around the pole as their entrails unwound until death came.
Officers of the Russian navy were steamed to death in their own engine rooms.
They were chained to cement blocks and hurled off the piers so that their tethered corpses, decomposing and rising under the waves, formed hideous, tossing forests of the dead.
General Viren of Kronstadt had both his arms hacked off and was then paraded around the downtown area until it became boring, whereupon he was shot.
Human beings had burning cigars pushed into their open eyes until they were blind, their entire body being roasted on spits.
Heads were squeezed slowly to the bursting point with special brain vises.
The German Army discovered a chamber full of these and similar devices, including a testicle-cracker, in an underground chamber in Ukraine in 1941. Adapted dentist drills were used to drill deep into the brain.
They sawed off the top of people’s skulls and forced others to eat their brains, whereupon the eaters then came under the saw and in turn had their own brains eaten. [Paraphrased]
Entire families were arrested and children tortured before the eyes of their bound parents, or the wife was tormented before the eyes of her husband or the reverse.
The Bolsheviks drove nails into empty wooden barrels, then jammed human beings inside, rolling the barrels around merrily.
Mass graves of people buried alive were found by the White Army. Victims of live burial usually have dirt in their mouth and nostrils from trying to breathe. The writhing bodies of these people were found in the most bizarre contortions.
And all this in the sweet name of freedom and democracy!
“The world that awaits us, if our New Masters prevail, will be a grim dystopia. It will be a spiritual wasteland in which an unprincipled elite rides roughshod over the teeming masses. It will be a cruel world of exploitation, moral darkness, and unspeakable brutality.” — Lasha Darkmoon, America Vanquished
Darkmoon upon America
by Israel Shamir
Response, Pictures and Captions by Lasha Darkmoon
The gifted British poet Lasha Darkmoon recently published a new essay in two parts called America Vanquished, claiming that the US, Germany and Russia were colonised by Jews.
How close to truth is she? Being a Gothic poet, she embellished her essay a lot, but here is the important part. She says:
In short, the Jews took over America and turned it into a Jewish colony. As simple as that. Their American hosts were hoist with their own petard.
But why worry? American Jews are Americans, are they not? If they’re smart enough to take over America, as they have demonstrably done, why shouldn’t they proceed to the next logical step and take over the world—yes, dominate the world through America? No one denies this is America’s aim: full-spectrum dominance. So if the Jews control America, and if America controls the world, doesn’t it follow logically that the Jews control the world? The logic is irrefutable.
Jewish world domination takes on a different perspective when viewed through this historical prism. No “conspiracy theories” here. No hook-nosed Jews grasping the globe in their cruel talons. No Illuminati trying to sodomize your children and drink their blood. Just logic. Just history. Just America striving for full-spectrum dominance — with Jews leading the pack.
You could say the wild-eyed dreams of the Protocols have at last been realized, but not in the way their original masterminds intended.
ANTI-SEMITIC CARTOON OF THE PREDATORY JEW GRASPING THE GLOBE IN HIS TALON-LIKE CLUTCHES (French caricature, 1898). “No hook-nosed Jews grasping the globe in their cruel talons. No Illuminati trying to sodomize your children and drink their blood. Just logic. Just history. Just America striving for full-spectrum dominance with Jews leading the pack.” — Lasha Darkmoon.
Lasha Darkmoon claims, that if the Jews form an elite in the US, then US world dominance is a form of Jewish world dominance.
Her second claim is that the US has became a colony of Israel. She even claims that “America is now Israel’s slave”.
There is a huge logical leap here: even if US Jews form an important part of the US elites, why would they give away their leadership to their cousins and brethren in the Middle East?
DARKMOON: (stepping in) Good point, Mr Shamir. Now consider my logic and try to refute this: If the Israeli Jews give the orders to the American Jews, and if the American Jews control America, then clearly America has become an Israeli colony. But if, on the contrary, American Jews exercise all the power and tell the Israeli Jews what to do, then clearly Israel is an American colony. The logic is inescapable.
Let’s go to the next step.
Once it is admitted that America is controlled by its Jews, whether Israeli Jews or American Jews, America becomes in effect a JEWISH colony.
Given that American Jews were former immigrants to America who have managed to “take over” America, you could say that Jewry has colonized America. Ergo: no matter which way you slice it, America is either an Israeli colony or a Jewish colony. The logic of my argument, I put it to you, is irrefutable.
We can take this therefore as proven: if America is not an Israeli colony, taking its orders from Israeli Jews, then it is a Jewish colony, taking its orders from American Jews.
SHAMIR: World Jewry is a project rather than reality; in real life, Jews of different countries do not feel themselves a single united body though they do interact. Compare them with Catholics: these have the Pope and a single hierarchy, and still they are united in prayer only. Jews have no Pope, no hierarchy, and are even less united.
DARKMOON: Jews less united than the goyim? Wow! I never thought any group could be less united than the goyim, or more united than the Jews in knowing “what is good for the Jews”. If you are trying to convince us that the Jews are DISUNITED just because no two Jews think alike, some preferring Buddhism to Judaism and others preferring kippas to hats, then you are on very shaky ground indeed! We are well aware that no two individuals, whether Jewish or non-Jewish, think alike; just as we are aware that no two individuals have identical fingerprints. It doesn’t follow from this, however, that people with different opinions are going to be disunited, any more than it follows that people with different fingerprints are going to be disunited.
To say that Jews lack unity is almost like saying America lacks military power. Or the Queen of England is short of cash. The Jews have far more unity, I put it to you, than any other other ethnic group in the world. This fundamental cohesion of the Jews is something I have pointed out in my recent essay America Vanquished:
“The extraordinary success of the Jews, who make up only 2.5 percent of America’s population, can be attributed to meticulous organization, coordination and networking. This advantageous cohesiveness derives from an evolutionary characteristic of the Jews: an exceptionally strong ethnocentricism which has enabled them to infiltrate almost every single organization that could possibly threaten them as a group.” (See here)
Despite the superficial differences between various types of Jews, the Jews are surely a paradigm of unity and cohesion compared to other ethnic groups.
You yourself, Mr Shamir, have written: “Palestine is not the Ultimate goal of the Jews; the world is.” Consider that statement. Can you seriously tell me that the Jews are likely to achieve this grandiose goal of world domination by being disunited and disorganized? by lacking coordination? No, of course not!
One could supply countless arguments to demonstrate the remarkable unity of the Jews in achieving “what is good for the Jews”. Pray tell: how did the Jews manage to take over the mass media, Hollywood, academia, the judiciary, the executive branches of government, Wall Street, the world’s banking system, the lavishly funded Think Tanks, even the porn industry, if they were disorganized and disunited?
The major Jewish organizations that crisscross America like a spider’s web—AIPAC being only one of them—can hardly be accused of ineffective disunity.
You’ve heard of mesira, the code of honor among Jews that make them stick together through thick and thin, never betraying an organ-stealing rabbi or even a serial killer to the goy authorities. Isn’t sticking together the ultimate form of unity?
You’ve heard of the Sayanim, Mossad’s one million worldwide helpers. How these faceless individuals, all Jews living in lands outside Israel, work away for Israel in providing “safe houses”, transportation, access to communications networks and other facilities for Mossad spies. Full details of the existence of the Mossad Sayanim network were given in the 1994 book The Other Side of Deceptionby Victor Ostrovsky, himself a renegade Mossad agent.
The Jewish Sayanim remind me of bees, all buzzing away for the common good, all united by a common purpose: to cram the hive full of honey.
One final point, Mr Shamir, which I know will make you graciously concede victory to me on this vitally important issue: in saying that “the Jews have no Pope, no hierarchy, and are even less united” than the goyim, you are guilty of a glaring contradiction. Wasn’t it only a few years ago that you argued the very opposite? Far from implying that the Jews were a disunited group, you stated that they possessed an almost supernatural unity, comparing them to locusts that moved in ordered formation to achieve their common goal.
“It is hard to swallow that the Jews have a strategy,” you said, “but no strategist. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion are popular precisely because they posit such a supreme strategist.” And then, to drive home the point, you added the famous quotation from the Bible: ‘The locusts have no king, yet they attack in formation’ and devastate whole countries as if by plan.” (Cabbala of Power, p.13)
That last phrase—“and devastate whole countries as if by plan”—is your own. You are daringly comparing the Jews to locusts who have an uncanny and almost supernatural ability to act in unison.
CAN JEWS BE COMPARED TO LOCUSTS, ACTING IN COORDINATION? “The locusts have no king, yet they attack in formation” (Proverbs 30:27) and devastate whole countries as if by plan.
SHAMIR: Israel is a very important element of Jewish life, Lasha, but this does not mean an Israeli Prime Minister can order Jews around.
Granted, politically active Americans think that one can’t succeed without Jewish support. This much we can learn from the incredible reception of Netanyahu in the Capitol and from Obama’s capitulation. And US politicians think that the US Jews love Israel; that is why they express their love of Israel. However, the American Jews’ feelings towards Israel are not that straightforward. Remember a prominent American Jewish politician Henry Kissinger? He facilitated the greatest Arab attack on Israel in 1973 in order to take Israel down a notch.
So, US Jews are certainly an important part of the US elites. Consequently they influence world politics, while the Israeli Jews are just family and friends of these powerful American Jews. This is the secret of Israeli influence: without the support of American Jews, Israel would shrink to its normal size.
“Without the support of American Jews, Israel would shrink to its normal size.” — Israel Shamir
The US Jews’ position in the US is so strong because US society has been formed and influenced by the Jewish spirit of predatory capitalism, as expounded by such diverse thinkers as Karl Marx, Werner Sombart and Milton Friedman. Defeat of financial predatory capitalism could undo the Jewish hold. It would de-Jewify the Jews and society in general.
And here we come to your second claim, Lasha: namely, that Russia and Germany are colonised by Jews. Even granting your poetic licence, this is far from the truth. Germany is not colonised by Jews; it is still occupied by the US troops.
DARKMOON: I’m not disagreeing with you, Mr Shamir, about Germany being under US occupation. In fact, I quote Eustace Mullins in Part 1 of my essay saying exactly the same thing. But I certainly never said that Germany had been “colonized by Jews”. Where did I say that? I would never have made such a ridiculous statement. I said that about America, but not about Germany.
SHAMIR: Jews play a negligible part in modern German life, Lasha. Even after the the defeat of the Third Reich, there was no resurgence of the Jewish spirit. Germany has a strong social security structure. Predatory financial capitalism has made few inroads. Germany is not a neoliberal state. The Germans pay tribute to Israel, that’s true; but this is only a result of American occupation. The West Germans are indeed indoctrinated in guilt feelings towards Jews, but East Germans have no guilt feelings whatsoever, and they influence the totality of German feelings. If and when US troops leave Germany, Germany will reassert itself.
Again, Russia is not colonized by Jews. Some Jewish oligarchs were expelled, and others were imprisoned by Putin. Russia usually votes against Israel in the UN and supplied enemies of Israel with its advanced weaponry. Russia now has fewer Jews than Scotland: about two hundred thousand altogether by official census, and twice that much by overblown Jewish organisations’ estimate. Granted, Russia has no anti-Semitism, and it has some influential Jews, but the important decisions are not made by them.
Was Russia “colonized by Jews” after the October 1917 revolution? This is the weakest part of your essay, Lasha. I’m afraid you know little about this subject and just repeat the silly claims of others.
DARKMOON: Again, Mr Shamir, I must point out with all due respect that at no time did I ever claim that Russia was “colonized by Jews”, nor did I even imply it. The same with Germany. However, if that is the impression I gave you, then I must apologize for not making my meaning clearer.
SHAMIR: You tell us that important Bolsheviks used pseudonyms; true, but this is not always connected with their Jewishness. Lenin’s real name was Ulyanov, but this is not a Jewish name. The early Bolsheviks were guerrilla fighters, and they used all sorts of names to evade surveillance. This is also a part of underground ethos.
DARKMOON: Again, I am in full agreement with you, Mr Shamir. So there’s no point ticking me off for disagreeing with you!
What I said in my article was that almost every single revolutionary Jew in Bolshevik Russia hid behind a non-Jewish name. This was either because they were engaged in subversive activities or because they were anxious to avoid being the victims of the virulent anti-semitism of those times.
Pseudonyms were adopted by non-Jews just as frequently if they were involved in seditious activities. Stalin, whose real name was Joseph Djugashvili, had at least 40 pseudonyms. See Simon Sebag Montefiore’s Young Stalin, p.395, for a list of his false names. Lenin, who was half Jewish, not only had over a hundred bogus names, but also went in for glued-on wigs and giant spectacles!
SHAMIR: Abu Jihad, Abu Ammar and Abu Mazen are nicknames, but surely they are not Jews. You and your readers, Lasha, should read Lindemann’s book Esau’s Tears. This deals extensively with the question of the Bolshevik leaders Jewishness.
These crazy numbers you quote— “66 million Russian Christians killed by Jews”— “out of 388 members of the new revolutionary government in Russia, only sixteen were real Russians”—were invented by anticommunists.
DARKMOON: Good point, Mr Shamir. I concede that the 66 million figure is probably a gross exaggeration, just as the SIX MILLION FIGURE is often alleged to be. (Note, I myself make no comment on this figure, since mathematics is not my forte.) However, both figures have been advanced by their respective propagandists. I decided to quote the 66 million figure for two reasons: (a) because I believe it was mentioned by the great Solzhenitsyn who was not given to lying; and (b) because the 66 million figure is actually mentioned in the title of Eustace Mullins’ classic essay, “The Secret Holocaust”, which I quoted extensively in my article. (See here). Since I was quoting from Mullins, I decided to quote his figures also, giving my readers his viewpoint.
The most conservative figure for the Russian Holocaust, now agreed upon by specialist historians and even cited in the Times newspaper (UK) is 50 million dead Russians. This figure was achieved within a 36-year period of mass murder (1917-1953), initiated by Lenin the quarter-Jew and continued by Stalin, a Georgian non-Jew, who surrounded himself on all sides by Jewish commissars and sexy young Jewesses he liked to bed.
If you think fifty million deaths is an inflated figure, I assure you it is not.
One Jew alone, the infamous Lazar Kaganovich, personally claimed responsibility for killing twenty million. It was he who stood atop the rubble of a Christian church and proclaimed, “Mother Russia has been cast down! We have torn away her skirts!”
Apart from Kaganovich, there were other Jews who contributed to the massacre of Christians under the cruelest circumstances: Ilya Ehrenburg, Natalfy Frenkel, Mathias Berman, Genrikh Yagoda (lingerie pervert), and, last but not least, Lavrenti Beria—though Beria may or may not have been Jewish. Mainstream historians assert that he was not. But they would, wouldn’t they? — given that Beria was not only a mass murderer of peasants, but also a bloodthirsty sex maniac and pedophile who buried children in his basement — probably alive. (See here and here, pp. 516-519 ).
At no other time in the history of the world has a country been so saturated with Jewish influence as it was between 1917 and 1953 in the Soviet Union: the time of the great gulags and the merciless slaughter of the peasants.
America now faces a similar saturation problem. There have been no Soviet-style massacres in America — not yet, thank God. But who knows what grisly surprises history has up its sleeve?
If the Jews can kill 50 million people in Russia and get away with it, they can kill 50 million people in America too, but maybe they won’t get away with it so easily next time. If they can do it once, they can do it twice — unless the leopard changes its spots.
SHAMIR: We know that imperialist propaganda is able to utilize anti-Jewish prejudice in its own interests: thus, when the Empire bombed Libya, its propagandists improbably claimed that Qaddafi is a Jew and a sympathiser of Israel. When the Empire hunted Julian Assange, its fifth column claimed that he is a Mossad agent. For this reason one should be cautious at accepting such claims: they can be done by enemies with subversive purpose.
Jews played an important part in Soviet Russia’s life, and they paid for that by their obedience and strict observance of Russia’s interests. If they strayed, they were severely punished by Stalin; if they played ball, they were allowed to stay in positions of power.
The lesson of Soviet Russia and Jews was directly opposite to that read by Lasha: even if Jews play an important role in the country, a determined ruler can correct and limit their influence.
This can be done by undoing financial capitalism. Not in vain, some Jewish pundits describe Occupy Wall Street as an “anti-Semitic movement”. Though the participants surely harbor no evil thoughts about the Jews, their goal of destroying the neoliberal model is at variance with Jewish power structures. Without their money, the Jews will shrink into mere shadows of themselves, and the nightmare will be over.

“More than one family friend has mentioned that, for every meal, the Rothschild family sets a place at the table for Lucifer.”
— Fritz Springermeier, quote and picture found here.
DARKMOON: (summing up): I am not really in disagreement with you on most important points. Even though I have accused you of being guilty of a “glaring contradiction” — your apparent U-turn on the unity of the Jews, once united like a swarm of locusts flying in ordered ranks, now disunited and split into several conflicting groups — this need not in fact be a contradiction at all. It could be a development or new nuance to your views, an added complexity; indeed, a kind of paradox in which the Jews are united and disunited at the same time, just as the universe is filled with light and darkness at the same time, and just as good and evil exist simultaneously in the same heart.
On one point, however, I am forced to take issue with you: I never said that Germany and Russia were “Jewish colonies”.
America, yes; but not Germany and Russia. And America only in a metaphorical sense. To all intents and purposes, America has become a Jewish colony.
Jews did not emigrate to Germany and Russia en masse as they emigrated to the United States. They were already well entrenched in Germany and Russia, part of the unassimilated population of those two nations for several centuries. They sprung to prominence in Germany, reaching their maximum degree of influence in the time of the Weimar Republic (1919-1933), just before the ascent of Hitler to power.
In Russia, the Jews sprung to similar prominence at the time of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, led on by the Jew Lenin and his Shabbat goy henchman, Stalin, who was later to become the world’s greatest mass murderer—aided and abetted by his closely knit contingent of court Jews.
Never before have I read a biography with so many Jews in the forefront, all seething like maggots in the rich soil of Mother Russia, all thirsting like vampires for the blood of their Christian victims.
Full marks to Simon Sebag Montefiore, himself a Jew, for having the courage to draw our attention to these frightening freaks of nature.
They belong in the seventh circle of Dante’s hell.
“ANOTHER PEOPLE WILL POSSESS YOUR LAND…” — Lasha Darkmoon, ‘The Coming Doom’.
Life is too short and precious to waste it on “anti-Semitism”. One has to move beyond this puerile response to Jewish world supremacy. Perhaps the role of the Jew in human affairs is to be the beast of prey that teaches the rest of us to run a bit faster.
“When the world looks at America, what it sees is an Israeli colony.”
— Paul Craig Roberts
America has been taken over.
Slowly and imperceptibly, duped by lies and lulled into complacency, Americans have let their country slip into the hands of a fifth column: of a hostile ethnic elite whose primary allegiance is to Israel, a country built on stolen land and engaged in systematic genocide.
This is the rogue state that is arguably responsible for the greatest mass murder in history: the catastrophe of 9-11. If scientific evidence and forensic logic are anything to go on, Israel has to be suspect number one here, given its unbroken record of terrorism and its endless breaches of international law. Any country that can orchestrate such a spectacular crime and get away with it—while somehow managing to pin the blame on nineteen Arabs with box cutters—is clearly a force to be reckoned with.
More than 200 senior military, intelligence, and law enforcement officials, including two generals, have now questioned the 9-11 Commission’s report. They have been joined by over 1500 top architects and engineers, 250 pilots and aviation experts, 400 university professors, and 250 survivors and their families. David Ray Griffin, author of eleven books on 9-11 and a distinguished professor emeritus, has concluded definitively: “All the proffered evidence that America was attacked by Muslims on 9-11 appears to have been fabricated.”
Dr Alan Sabrosky, former director of the Army War College, has upped the ante and unequivocally identified Israel as the guilty party. “What we need to stand up and say is not only did they [the Israelis] attack the USS Liberty, but that it is 100 percent certain 9/11 was a Mossad operation.”
If any further proof were needed of America’s abject enslavement to Zionist interests, however, it would be Obama’s humiliation at the hands of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this year. This humiliation has occurred on three separate occasions: in September 2009, in July 2010, and again only last May. Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank writes almost gloatingly of Obama flying “the white flag of surrender” in the White House—where he sat “routed and humiliated.”
He had asked the Israelis to observe international law by stopping settlement construction on Palestinian land. He had pleaded with them to withdraw to the 1967 borders, in accordance with UN Resolution 242—a reasonable enough request which every American President before him has asked the Israelis to consider in the interests of peace.
The Israeli Prime Minister’s response? — “Israel will NOT return to the indefensible boundaries of 1967!”
So how is it that this rude and recalcitrant “ally” of America still continues to receive its $3 billion a year subsidy? Is America so besotted with love for the Jewish state that it cannot say ‘No’? Silly question. Since it rests on the Chomskyite assumption that America is still the lord and master and little Israel the dependent colony.
The riddle is easily solved if one turns Chomsky’s assumption on its head: organized Jewry, having taken over America, has transformed it into an Israeli colony. The $8.2 million per day that the American taxpayer pays his Jewish master is not a subsidy. It is tribute money. It is a tax or levy imposed on a vanquished people by their conquerors.
Hear the note of contempt for one’s own President in this extraordinary account of Obama’s humiliation at the hands of Netanyahu, his Jewish victor:
Netanyahu beat Obama like a red-headed stepchild; he played him like a fiddle; he pounded him like a big brass drum. The Prime Minister of Israel danced rings around his arrogant, professorial opponent. The Prime Minister mopped the floor with our guy….Bibi ripped him to shreds…demonstrating to the whole world that the Prime Minister of Israel has substantially more support in both the House and the Senate than the President of the United States.
I guess that says it all. Poor Obama. He has been symbolically castrated and buried in excrement up to the neck. Those 29 standing ovations Netanyahu received in Congress were equivalent to a lump of spit in the President’s face.
According to political pundit Philip Giraldi, this was “the first time in recorded history that a small nation with less than eight million citizens has subjugated a much larger country with a population of more than 310 million.”
The Zionization of America is complete, with AIPAC appointing the government and 60 million Christian Zionists ready to die for their new masters in Jerusalem.
“I’ve never seen a President stand up to them. They always get what they want. If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms.” (Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1983)
At this point I feel the need to apologize for the picture of the finger-wagging rabbi at the end of Part 1 of this essay, together with the inflammatory words he is purported to have uttered about the Jewish desire for world domination. I can hear my critics cry: “Silly airhead, why do you spout all this Protocolian poppycock? Don’t you know the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is an anti-Semitic forgery?”
Yes, I confess with a sigh that I have heard the word “forgery” often advanced as a reason not to read this brilliant political treatise, second only to Plato’s Republic in its profundity.
What I am saying, however, has nothing to do with the Protocols. I am not a conspiracy theorist. I am a historian who is interested only in facts. Truth alone stirs my heart.
Let’s take another quick look at Zionism.
In a recent essay called Why Palestine is Important, Israel Shamir presents a picture that puts this entire Protocolian nonsense into perspective:
Palestine is important because it is believed to be a linchpin of Empire, one of the key points necessary to control the world. Such was the conviction of the 19th century British Empire-builders of the Rhodes variety….Once an arcane theory developed by HJ Mackinder, it has grown up to become a driving force behind globalism …. Mackinder planned the subjugation of the whole planet to the Empire …. Napoleon [had earlier] toyed with the idea of planting Jews in Palestine as France’s foot soldiers, but there were no takers among Jews. The Brits achieved what the French could not.
Zionism, in other words, according to Shamir’s recent take on the subject, was a British inspiration and a tool in the armory of Pax Britannica. It was the way the Brits intended to conquer the world. They would plonk the unwanted Jews in Palestine as their proxies. Israel, in effect, was to be a British colony. And Lord Balfour, when he drew up the famous Balfour Declaration in 1917, had a glint in his beady little eye. He was more interested in advancing the designs of the British Empire than in being nice to the Jews.
If all this is true—and I think it possibly is—we can see what happened next. By 1948 the British Empire had collapsed in ruins. It was no longer in a position to use Israel as its cat’s paw. Another emerging nation however, the chief beneficiary of World War II, certainly was. This was America. Yet even as far back as 1948, America was largely controlled by its Jews. Their influence, though it was to grow by leaps and bounds after 1967, was enormous even in 1948.
It was the Jews who twisted President Truman’s arm and got him to give his full backing to their fledgling state. It was the Jews again, through the vengeful Morgenthau, as I indicated in Part 1 of this essay, who were to make life a living hell for the conquered Germans in the aftermath of World War II. The Jews were always in the background, it seems, the shadowy lurkers in the cabbage patch of history.
The colony that the Brits had failed to acquire in the Middle East, Israel, was inherited by America. So Chomsky was right after all. To start with, anyway. Israel was to be America’s aircraft carrier in the Middle East. The Americans would use it as a gigantic military base from which to plunder Arab oil. Nor would they have any problems with Ben Gurion’s dreams of a Greater Israel stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates. After all, why not give the Jews what they wanted?
Greater Israel was simply to be an extension of America: its fifty-first state.
Things didn’t work out as planned. The best-laid schemes of mice and men, we are told, often go askew. The tables were turned on the simple-minded Americans. The Jews were much smarter than their WASP masters could ever be. They had acquired through three thousand years of bitter experience the arts of duplicity and cunning. Guile was their genetic patrimony. They were the Ultimate Survivors.
One has to hand it to the Jews. The hitherto oppressed decided to become the oppressors. The former victims decided to take on the role of predators. The cat’s paw decided it would rather be the Cat from now on—and it became the Cat’s Pajamas.
In short, the Jews took over America and turned it into a Jewish colony. As simple as that. Their American hosts were hoist with their own petard.
But why worry? American Jews are Americans, are they not? If they’re smart enough to take over America, as they have demonstrably done, why shouldn’t they proceed to the next logical step and take over the world—yes, dominate the world through America? No one denies this is America’s aim: full spectrum dominance. So if the Jews control America, and if America controls the world, doesn’t it follow logically that the Jews control the world? The logic is irrefutable.
Jewish world domination takes on a different perspective when viewed through this historical prism. No “conspiracy theories” here. No hook-nosed Jews grasping the globe in their cruel talons. No Illuminati trying to sodomize your children and drink their blood. Just logic. Just history. Just America striving for full-spectrum dominance with Jews leading the pack.
You could say the wild-eyed dreams of the Protocols have at last been realized, but not in the way their original masterminds intended.
The shape of things to come…?
Allow me now to present the testimony of Eustace Mullins, if only for the vivid pictures he presents to the mind of the terrors endured by millions of Russian Christians in Bolshevik Russia when it was under Jewish hegemony. Could this be the fate of American Christians in the not too distant future?
There are too many well documented massacres in history in which the Jews tortured and murdered their victims with the greatest glee, gloating in such barbaric practices as tearing out the hearts of women and children and smearing the blood on their faces.
The orgy of murder, torture and pillage which followed the Jewish triumph in Russia [after the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917] has never been equaled in the history of the world. The Jews were free to indulge their most fervent fantasies of mass murder of helpless victims.
Christians were dragged from their beds, tortured and killed. Some were actually sliced to pieces, bit by bit, while others were branded with hot irons, their eyes poked out to induce unbearable pain.
Others were placed in boxes…then hungry rats placed in the boxes to gnaw upon their bodies. Some were nailed to the ceiling by their fingers or by their feet, and left hanging until they died of exhaustion.
Others were chained to the floor and hot lead poured into their mouths. Many were tied to horses and dragged through the streets of the city, while the mob attacked them with rocks and kicked them to death.
Mothers were taken to the public square and their babies snatched from their arms….the baby [was] tossed into the air while another member of the mob rushed to catch it on the tip of his bayonet.
Pregnant Christian women were chained to trees and their babies cut out of their bodies. (See here)
“We should never forget what happened when Jews were a hostile elite in the USSR,” Prof. Kevin MacDonald notes bleakly. “The loathing and contempt for the traditional people and culture of Russia was a major factor in the avid Jewish participation in the greatest crimes of the 20th century.”
MacDonald is referring to the systematic murder of over 50 million Russians under Lenin and Stalin: a period of mass murder spanning 36 years (1917-1953).
The new American elite—as I pointed out in Part 1 of this article, “America as an Israeli Colony”—is a Jewish elite. Exactly like the elite in Bolshevik Russia and Stalin’s USSR. And it is essentially a hostile elite that “loathes the nation it rules.”
So we need to watch out.
Because what happened to millions of Russians in the first half of the 20th century—systematic genocide—could well happen to millions of Americans in the foreseeable future.
“It is quite possible,” Kevin MacDonald muses, “that we are entering into a racial dystopia of unimaginable cruelty.”
A game called Survival
The extraordinary success of the Jews, who make up only 2.5 percent of America’s population, can be attributed to meticulous organization, coordination and networking. This advantageous cohesiveness derives from an evolutionary characteristic of the Jews: an exceptionally strong ethnocentricism which has enabled them to infiltrate almost every single organization that could possibly threaten them as a group. In America, highly gifted Jews whose primary loyalty is to Israel have managed to insinuate their way into key policy positions, including the Departments of Treasury and State, the Pentagon, the National Security Council and the White House.
Over the past 24 months not a single policy maker [James Petras tells us] has voiced any criticism of Israel’s most heinous crimes, ranging from the savaging of Gaza to the massacre of the humanitarian flotilla and the expansion of new settlements in Jerusalem and the West Bank….Many of the leading Zionist policy makers rose to power through a deliberate strategy of infiltrating the government to shape policy promoting Israel’s interest over and above the interests of the US populace.
If the goyim have lost the game of life and their hard-won freedoms to the Jews, it was because they didn’t know they were playing a game in the first place. A game for the highest possible stakes.
A game called Survival.
The world that awaits us, if our New Masters prevail, will be a grim dystopia. It will be a spiritual wasteland in which an unprincipled elite rides roughshod over the teeming masses. It will be a cruel world of exploitation, moral darkness, and unspeakable brutality.
“Death solves all problems,” Stalin quipped cynically. “No man, no problem.” When mass extermination becomes the miracle cure, exciting times can be expected.
In Otto Friedrich’s widely acclaimed Holocaust study, The Kingdom of Auschwitz, a concentration camp survivor is quoted as saying:
Concentration camp existence taught us that the whole world is really like a concentration camp. The world is ruled by neither justice nor morality. Crime is not punished nor virtue rewarded. The world is ruled by power. We are laying the foundation for some new, monstrous civilization.
An innocent victim of this “new, monstrous civilization”, a Palestinian child, his arm cut off by an Israeli settler for throwing a stone. (See here)
So this is where we are now: in the eye of the storm.
America, once a democracy, is now a crypto-fascist country ruled by a corporate and cosmopolitan elite. “There is no freedom, no democracy, and no government accountability in Amerika, a fascist state,” Paul Craig Roberts concludes ruefully in one of his recent essays.
The Jews, fulfilling the wildest dreams conjured up in the Protocols, stand surveying the killing fields of the world they have conquered. Iraq and Afghanistan lie in ruins, thanks to their machinations. Iran lies in the cross-hairs, awaiting its expected doom. And meanwhile in America, as the body bags are flown in from foreign parts and the lurid circus of bread and games grinds on relentlessly, there is nothing much to live for except sex and death.
Stalin’s willing executioners, the Jews, are now the ruling elite in America. As in Weimar Germany, the Jews make most of the money and help to create a culture of neo-paganism and nihilism, decadence and despair. Nothing has changed except the country.
Russia, Germany, America — they all went down like skittles in a row.
THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.” — George Orwell, 1984 __________________________________________________
“We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” — Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001
“I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government,” Jewish columnist Joel Stein wrote in the Los Angeles Times in December 2008. “I just care that we get to keep running them.”
Mr Stein’s reckless candor in admitting that the Jews ran America was to cost him his job at the LA Times.
If Americans have lost their country to organized Jewry, they lost it slowly and imperceptibly. Indeed, most Americans remain unaware that their country no longer belongs to them. They fervently believe they still live in a democracy. This was a takeover not without precedent, however. It had happened to Germany. It had happened to Russia. It has now happened to America.
Take Germany and Russia.
Germany, a mere shadow of what it might have been, is now a defeated and demoralized nation, thoroughly browbeaten by Jewry and terrified of their masters in Israel. Without stretching it too far, one could say that Germany has become Israel’s cash cow.
There is nothing particularly controversial about this observation. It had occurred to Eustace Mullins over twenty years ago:
To finance the State of Israel, which was created as a direct result of the Jewish victory over the Christian nations in World War II, Jews…now imposed enormous “reparations” demands on the conquered German people. To date, they have extorted more than thirty-five billion dollars from German workers, money which has been collected at the points of bayonets, not Jewish bayonets but the bayonets of the American Army, which has been maintained as an occupying force in West Germany for nearly four decades, solely to provide military power behind the puppet German Government which has as its primary function the furnishing of money for the parasitic state of Israel. (See here)
In December 2009, the Israelis demanded another billion euros from Germany ($1.4 billion). The survivors of the Holocaust, surprisingly, seem to increase in number with time. This prompted Norman Finkelstein’s mother to ask somewhat cynically, after she had been cheated out of her reparations money by the rabbis who administered the Holocaust Fund: “If everyone who claims to be a survivor actually is one,who did Hitler kill?”
Mullins is not exaggerating when he says that the American troops foisted on Germany after World War II were in fact an “occupying force”: an army moreover acting on behalf, and at the behest, of organized Jewry.
It was the Morgenthau Plan, specifically designed by the vengeful Henry Morgenthau as a collective punishment against the German people for the crimes of Hitler, that was to turn post-war Germany into “the largest concentration camp on earth.”
As late as 1991, German chancellors were still being forced, like enslaved vassals under the Roman Empire, to sign an “act of submission” to their Allied conquerors.
“The Jew Morgenthau wants to turn Germany into a giant potato patch,” Goebbels complained bitterly. He was right. Anti-Semites sometimes are.
Russia too, like Germany, was to fall under Jewish domination.
According to Solzhenitsyn in The Gulag Archipelago,66 million Russian Christians were put to death on the orders of the Cheka or Russian secret police. Those devising the tortures, and giving the orders to rape and kill ethnic Russians, were mostly Jews. Yuri Slezkine’s candid quote from historian Leonard Shapiro is too well known to be casually dismissed: “Anyone who had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the Cheka stood a very good chance of finding himself confronted with and possibly shot by a Jewish investigator.”
Out of 388 members of the new revolutionary government in Russia, only sixteen were real Russians. “Apart from one negro,” we are told, “the rest were Jews.”
These revolutionaries did their best to hide their Jewish identities by taking new names. Lenin was originally Ulyanov, Trotsky was Bronstein, Zinoviev was Apfelbaum, Sverdlov was Solomon, Zinoviev was Radomyslsky, Radek was Sobelsohn, Litvonov was Wallach, Kamenev was Rosenfeld, Parvus was Helphand, Martov was Zederbaum, Bohrin was Nathanson. Not one of these Jewish revolutionaries was prepared to go under his own name or be identified as a Jew. Under Stalin, merely to draw attention to the fact that unpopular officials were Jewish was to incur the death penalty.
Another interesting titbit of information that court historians prefer not to mention is this: many of the Jews propping up the new Bolshevik government, happy to issue instructions for the torture and execution of Russian Christians, were actually Jews who had been shipped in from the East Side of New York. No surprise here. After all, the man who helped to finance the Russian Revolution from his base in Wall Street—to the tune of $20 million—was Jewish American banker Jacob Schiff.
A well-known French journal, L’Illustration, had this to say in its edition of September 14, 1918:
When one comes in contact with the functionaries serving in the Bolshevik Government, one feature strikes the attention: almost all of them are Jews. I am not at all anti-Semitic, but I must state what strikes the eye. Everywhere—in Petrograd, in Moscow, in provincial districts, in commissariats, in district offices, in Smolny, in the Soviets—I have met nothing but Jews and again Jews. (See here)
Germany…Russia…America. They all fell under Jewish hegemony. They had their hour in the sun, and then they had their eclipse.
It’s now America’s turn.
President George W. Bush and his Jewish entourage
“Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away.” — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 2002. (Widely reported, see here)
Israel, America’s albatross
In Part 1 of my article, Goodbye, America, I discussed the problems facing America today and suggested that they are far more serious than those facing National Socialist Germany in the 1930s. Of the seven problems I listed, the four most intractable ones are these:
The nuclear-armed state of Israel and its Samson Option, neither of which existed as threats to peace before the establishment of the Zionist state in the wake of WW-2.
The presence of 60 million Christian Zionists in America who are hand in glove with our new Masters, aiding and abetting them in their violation of international law and the ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people.
The existence of a tentacular network of Jewish organizations in America, such as the ADL and AIPAC, holding the entire country to ransom; specifically, its mercenary and morally bankrupt politicans.
The lethal weapon of multiculturalism, a weapon unavailable for use against either Germany or Russia but now deployed to devastating effect against America’s Euro-American majority. “Global elites view the White Western world as the main obstacle standing in the way of a future world government,” Pat Buchanan is widely reported to have said in a 2004 speech. “Multiculturalism is a tool used by such elites to dismantle White Western civilization.”
Given that the Jews managed to achieve almost complete control of Germany and Russia even before the foundation of the Jewish state in 1948, it must surely be obvious that their executive power has increased exponentially with the acquisition of a military base in the Middle East, armed to the teeth with the deadliest nuclear warheads, many of these aimed at European capitals and some of them probably at the United States. It would be foolish to think that a country that killed Americans in cold blood in the USS Liberty attack of 1967, would have any scruples about doing so on a much vaster scale if ever America became the object of their hatred.
It is important at his point to consider the hidden facts surrounding the foundation of the state of Israel, if only because this will help us to get a better perspective of the Jewish problem.
The Jews were given Israel on the tacit understanding that most of them would go and live there, leaving the rest of the world Judenfrei or Jew-free. They reneged on their collective promise however—made implicitly on their behalf by their then leaders Theodor Hertzl and Chaim Weizmann—and they prefer now to regard Israel as a second home and place of refuge if things get too hot for them elsewhere.
Israel’s first president, Chaim Weizmann, wrote in his memoirs:
Whenever the quantity of Jews in any country reaches the saturation point, that country reacts against them. [This] reaction…cannot be looked upon as anti-Semitism in the ordinary or vulgar sense of that word; it is a universal social and economic concomitant of Jewish immigration, and we cannot shake it off. — Chaim Weizmann, Trial and Error (1949). Quoted in Albert S. Lindemann’s The Jew Accused, 1991 (p. 277).
Herzl himself had made the same point much earlier. Anti-Semitism, he wrote, is “an understandable reaction to Jewish defects.” And in his diary he added: “I find the anti-Semites are fully within their rights.” (See here)
Having been given a homeland on the tacit understanding that they had to go and live there, the Jews were clearly under an obligation to do so. The object of the exercise is otherwise defeated. So why is it that 58 percent of the world’s 14 million Jews now live in America and Europe and only 37 percent in Israel? It certainly needs to be asked: why were the Palestinians expelled from their own country in order to accommodate another people who mostly choose to live elsewhere?
A Palestinian woman being attacked by Jewish settlers
“Nothing here in America compares to the horrors of Palestine….
Women are raped by Israeli military officials….Palestinian children
are doused with gasoline and set on fire for the amusement of the IDF.” — Jonathan Azaziah, Mizrahi American Jew
It is almost universally believed, thanks to Jewish ownership of the mass media, that the UN created Israel and that everyone was delighted when this happened. This is demonstrably false. Even the US government—or 99 percent of it—was adamantly opposed to the foundation of Israel. Indeed, former Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson was one of many who raised strenuous objections to America recognizing the Jewish state, predicting that “the West would pay a high price for Israel.” In spite of all these misgivings, the Jews got their state.
In reality [Alison Weir notes] while the UN General Assembly recommended the creation of a Jewish state in part of Palestine, that recommendation was non-binding and never implemented by the Security Council.
Second, the General Assembly passed that recommendation only after Israel proponents threatened and bribed numerous countries in order to gain a required two-thirds of votes.
Third, the US administration supported the recommendation out of domestic electoral considerations, and took this position over the strenuous objections of the State Department, the CIA, and the Pentagon.
Despite the shallow patina of legality its partisans extracted from the General Assembly, Israel was born over the opposition of American experts and of governments around the world, who opposed it on both pragmatic and moral grounds.
Why the Zionist landgrabbers should now be held in such high esteem in America and elsewhere, and their Palestinian victims spat upon and spurned at every opportunity, can be easily explained.
Apart from the Jewish-owned mass media which has managed to glamorize and cast a rose-tinted glow over its Frankenstein monster, the answer lies in one word: Holocaust. The Zionists have managed to convince the world that they are the moral legatees of the victims of the Holocaust. As such, they remain the Ultimate Victims.
Like Finkelstein, we are entitled to express concern over the cheap exploitation of Jewish suffering. It is an undeniable fact that the Holocaust is a major industry and that it is used as moral blackmail and carte blanche for monstrous crimes.
Israeli writer Ari Shavit summed it up neatly when he said: “We may murder with impunity, because the Holocaust museum is on our side”.
The Enemy Within
It can be convincingly argued, with a wealth of supportive quotations, that the presence of Jews in large numbers in any given country has always had catastrophic consequences for that country. (See Weizmann and Herzl quotes above). Organized Jewry has now spread its influence far and wide via the internet, newspapers, magazines and books. Hollywood, its most effective hasbara agent, spreads its poisonous propaganda all over the world, offering the ill-educated masses its lies and distortions and its laissez-faire Freudian sexual morality. Meanwhile the porn industry, dominated by Jews, promotes the demoralization of countless millions, creating sex addicts even out of children and driving many of its victims to despair and suicide.
With the triumph of Jewry comes the subjugation and enslavement of the entire non-Jewish world. Christianity becomes the first casualty, the family unit the second. Homosexuality and radical feminism become more strident in their attitudes and more extreme in their demands, opening up a Pandora’s box of evils: the push to normalize pedophilia, for example, and the systematic corruption of children through the promotion of child porn in the classroom.
We are in a critical situation. It was never Palestine on its own that organized Jewry wanted. Palestine was simply to be their base of operations for the conquest of the rest of the world. According to Israel Shamir:
Palestine is not the ultimate goal of the Jews; the world is. Palestine is just the place for world state headquarters…..The Jews intend to turn Jerusalem into the supreme capital of the world, and its rebuilt temple into the focal point of the Spirit on Earth. Christianity will die, the spirit will depart from the nations in our part of the world, and our present dubious democracy will be supplanted by a vast theocratic state. De-spiritualized and uprooted, homeless and lonely, yesterday’s Masters of the World [WASPs] will become slaves in all but name….The Jewish universe is good for Jews. It is a curse for others. In the US, as Jewish influence has grown steadily since 1968, the lives of ordinary people have worsened. A good time for the Jews is not a good time for mankind. The blessing of the Jews is a curse for others. The regimes that are “good for Jews” are rarely good for anybody else.
The runes are easy enough to read. From the domination of Germany and Russia, the Jews contrived to leapfrog to the domination of America.
We see through a glass darkly, but what we see through the gathering gloom is the grim specter of an American dystopia: a Third World country hardly worth living in for its rapidly diminishing Euro-American majority.
It costs the American taxpayer $12 million an hour just to keep US troops in Afghanistan, a country America decided to invade on a rollercoaster of neoconservative lies. “The neocons,” Gilad Azmon comments cuttingly in a recent book, “transform the American army into an Israeli mission force.”
Incredibly, America’s closest ally, Israel, has yet to contribute a single soldier to Washington’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nor are American Jews particularly noted for their presence, let alone their heroism, in the fighting forces. And yet they fight with their pens most valiantly, far from the din of battle. It is they who beat the war drums the loudest, who profit most from the wanton slaughter of innocents, and who “get others to fight and die for them.”
The days of wine and roses are over. The American Dream is dead. Like Germany and Russia before it, America lies vanquished.
WE ARE THE NEW MASTERS!
“The goal for which we have striven so concertedly for three thousand years is at last within our reach. I can safely promise you that our race will soon take its rightful place in the world, with every Jew a king and every Gentile a slave.” — Rabbi Emmanuel Rabbinovich, speech delivered at a special conference of European rabbis in Budapest, January 12, 1952
Ruled by a Jewish elite and their Shabbat goy underlings, beyond the reach of international law and hated throughout the world, America is now an Israeli colony in all but name.
The cartoon strip published below — “When the Goddamn Jews take over America” — is not, as its title might suggest, anti-Semitic in intent. On the contrary, it is a highly sophisticated satirical spoof by Judeophile cartoonist Robert Crumb that brings together a number of anti-Semitic “canards” and “stereotypes”. Far from being anti-Semitic, the cartoon strip is therefore an attempt to poke fun at the anti-Semites and their ridiculous “conspiracy theories” about Jews.
It must be remembered that Robert Crumb’s second wife, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, was Jewish. Born into a middle-class Jewish family in New York, the Goldsmiths, Aline was a highly talented underground comics artist in her own right. She was known to collaborate with her husband Robert on many of his assignments. So it is more than likely that Aline collaborated with Crumb on this particular cartoon strip with its tongue-in-cheek anti-Semitism.
When Aline met Robert in 1978, it was love at first sight. She was attracted to the bearded humorist because she thought he was Jewish. This is what she has to say:
“I had read Robert’s work before I met him and I thought he was Jewish because he was so whiny. He’s such a kvetch. When I saw Robert’s comics, I thought: here is Jewish humor at its best. When my grandparents met him, they thought he was a rabbinical student. When we finally told them the truth, they were really disappointed. My grandmother tried to get him to convert [to Judaism] for years. Robert seems to be somewhat of a Jewophile because I’m his second Jewish wife. (See here)
Cartoonist Robert Crumb and his Jewish wife, Aline Kominsky-Crumb
If Crumb’s humor is “Jewish humor at its best”, this does not say much for Jewish humor — however anarchic and irreverent Jewish humor is meant to be. Crumb’s work has elicted harsh comment from many critics. It has been denounced as racist, anti-feminist, and sexually perverted.
Crumb’s contributions, for example, appeared in Nasty Tales, a 1970s British publication that faced obscenity charges at the Old Bailey courthouse in London in 1972. Though the publishers were acquitted on that occasion, the mud stuck to Crumb — and his reputation as an unwholesome influence with sex on the brain has persisted.
R. Crumb’s Sex Obsessions, a collection of the cartoonist’s most explicit sex-oriented drawings and comic strips, was released from TASCHEN in November 2007. This may have boosted Crumb’s reputation among pornophiles, but it diminished his appeal elsewhere.
In August 2001, on Crumb being invited to attend a graphics artist festival in Sydney, Australia, an Australian tabloid labeled him a “self-confessed sex pervert”. The hostile headline asked, Cult genius or filthy weirdo?
Note. A Crumb cartoon depicting a big-breasted female receiving oral sex from a man at a bus stop has been deleted from this point in the text at the request of the writer of this article, after complaints from a few readers. — Editor
As a result of this “unjustified” abuse, Crumb had second thoughts about visiting the rude antipodean Crumbophobes and decided to cancel his trip to Australia in a fit of pique.
Today, Crumb and his Jewish wife Aline reside in a small village near Sauve in the South of France, where they are often visited by their family.
Partly because of his Jewish connections and his distinctly Jewish humor—possibly the result of heavy collaboration with his Jewish wife—Crumb’s reputation as a cult figure is guaranteed. He received the world’s ultimate accolade by recognition and publication in the Thanksgiving edition (2004) of The New Yorker, a magazine (as we know) under full Jewish ownership, like the bulk of America’s mass media.
You will note that the above statement is itself an anti-Semitic “canard”, i.e., an allegedly false belief offensive to Jews — but one that happens, nevertheless, to be true!
The mass-media-under-Jewish-ownership “canard”, ironically, is utilized by Crumb himself in Frame 3 of the cartoon strip below: “AND THESE YIDS HAVE SECURED TOTALLY THEIR GREASY HANDS OWNERSHIP OF THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE OF MIND CONTROL IN THE MODERN WORLD — THE MASS MEDIA!”
Knowing all this, it’s amazing to think that so many otherwise intelligent people should regard the cartoon strip below as “anti-Semitic” when it is in fact almost the reverse: a satirical spoof by a philosemite and his Jewish wife.
Sura 1 of the Qur’an, known as the Fatiha or Opening Chapter, consists of seven short verses. One of the shortest suras in the Qur’an, it is known by heart by tens of millions of pious Muslims all over the world and recited as a prayer five times a day. The Sura goes as follows:
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds;
Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
Master of the Day of judgement.
Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
Show us the Straight Way,
The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose portion is not wrath, and who go not astray.
— Yusuf Ali translation.
Recited in Arabic in an incantatory voice, these seven verses often send auditors into a deep trance. This is because of the ‘magical’ sound effects of the original Arabic with its combination of alliteration, assonance, liquid, labial and sibilant sounds, apart from its complex internal rhymes. Here is the Arabic transliteration in English characters.
A correspondent of mine wrote to me recently: “I once knew an old Sufi mystic from Samarkand who used to go into an instantaneous trance on hearing this sura recited to a background of gongs and flutes. The same sura, he told me, would not only induce levitation among the dancing dervishes but also produce a state of mind conducive to safe and easy firewalking. It is often said by occidentals of an Islamophobic bent that the Qur’an is “boring”. So decreed British novelist Anthony Burgess, author of The Clockwork Orange. Few, if any, of these Westerners are aware of the Qur’an’s occult underpinnings and its intricate concatenation of uncanny sounds. No other religious classic, when chanted, is known to have comparable physiological effects.”
Sound effects in Western poetry
Here now are some examples of magical sound effects from Western literature:
Yo soy titiri, titiri, tina,
Flor de la jacarandina
Yo soy titiri, titiri, taina,
Flor de la jacarandaina.
— Calderón, El Alcalde de Zalamea. These lines are intended to imitate the sound of a guitar being strummed. Literal rendition: “I am titiri, titiri tina, the flower of the jacarandina; I am titiri, titiri taina, the flower of the jacarandaina.”
Consider Virgil’s: “Sunt lacrymae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt.” (Aeneid, Book 1). Literally: “There are tears for misfortunes and mortal sorrows touch the heart.” The English version utterly fails to reproduce the intoxicating beauty of the Latin sounds: a soft sibilant start followed by liquids, ending with dentals, bilabials and a guttural.
Similar to the auditory effects in such a line is the Latinate euphony of Shakespeare’s “the multitudinous seas incarnadine”, with its nasal and dental sounds (m’s, n’s, t’s and d’s) in solemn, polysyllabic procession. The Bard is weaving his magic spell again when he deploys this subtle combination of similar sounds: nasals, labials, dentals and soft sibilants:
“Not poppy, nor mandragora,
Nor all the drowsy syrups of the world,
Shall ever medicine thee to that sweet sleep
Which thou owedst yesterday.”
From Shakespeare, it is one step to Tennyson’s very consciously pyrotechnic:
The moan of doves in immemorial elms,
And murmur of innumerable bees.” — Tennyson, The Princess
Tennyson’s famous lines are of of course untranslatable if one tries to combine musicality with meaning. The magic of the lines rests on the many long vowels, the s’s and the liquids, and above all the beautiful m-sounds which combine labials with nasals (lip and nose sounds).
It could be said that of all the words in the world, not only in English but in every foreign language, the most beautiful words are those that contain m-sounds, l-sounds and r-sounds. When Donne writes, “Dull sublunary lovers’ love”, he knows he has struck rich ore. Another memorable example of lovely liquid sounds (l and r sounds) is Swinburne’s “The lilies and languors of virtue, / The roses and raptures of vice.”
Consider now these lines from Dante, beautiful beyond compare—a perfect synthesis of music and meaning:
“Per me si va nella città dolente,
per me si va nel’eterno dolore,
per me si va tra la perduta gente.
Dinanzi a me non fur cose create,
Se non eterne, ed io eterno duro:
LASCIATE OGNI SPERANZA, VOI CH’ENTRATE!”
— Dante, Divine Comedy, Inferno, III, 1-3; 7-9
Literally: “Through me is the way into the doleful city; through me the way into the eternal pain; through me the way among the people lost. Before me were no things created, but eternal; and eternal I endure; leave all hope you that enter.”
If those lines remain the finest that Italy has ever produced, these closing lines from Goethe’s Faust are the German equivalent: stately, profound, beautiful, transcendental:
Ist nur ein Gleichnis;
Heir wird’s Ereignis;
Heir wird’s getan,
Zieht uns hinan.”
“All things transitory
Are but similitude; What is inadequate
Here becomes an event;
Here is brought about
The Eternal Womanly
Not a very inspiring translation. Here is a much better one by Stephen Spender. (I have taken the liberty of substituting “The Eternal Feminine” for Spender’s “Eternal Womanhead”.)
“All that is past of us
Was but reflected;
All that was lost in us
Here is corrected;
Here we descry;
The Eternal Feminine
Leads us on high.”
Consider these often quoted lines of Verlaine:
Les sanglots longs
Blessent mon Coeur
— Verlaine, Chansons d’Automne
The entire poem (three stanzas) is an attempt to reproduce the effect of hauntingly sad violin music. I have attempted to translate the poem myself, but without much success. An attempt to reproduce the lugubrious sound effects has led to a loss of accuracy. (See here)
Note here the lovely sibilant and liquid sounds that manage to convey the sense of a majestic river in slow motion.
“Far off from these, a slow and silent stream,
Lethé, the river of oblivion, rolls
Its watery labyrinth.”
— Milton, Paradise Lost
For beautiful sound effects, the witches’ scene in Macbeth is hard to beat. Listen to the sound or water bubbling in a pot:
“Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.”
For beautiful sound effects, Coleridge is unsurpassed:
“The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,
The furrow followed free,
We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.”
— The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Or consider this from Shelley:
Like a high-born maiden
In a palace tower
Soothing her love-laden
Soul in secret hour
With music sweet as love, which overflows her bower.
Some of the most stunning sound effects are to be found in Swinburne:
Pale beyond porch and portal,
Crowned with calm leaves she stands
Who gathers all things mortal
With cold immortal hands.
These lines made such an impression on me that one day last year, when I saw a lovely pale young woman playing the violin on a street corner, I turned to my sister Lucy and murmured, “Look at her! Isn’t she beautiful? Pale beyond porch and portal!”
Lucy laughed. “How can anyone be pale beyond porch and portal?”
Indeed, how can they? And how would a translator translate such a phrase? Would it make any sense to translate this utterly meaningless phrase as “pale beyond house entrance and door”?
Of course not. This is an example where sound takes precedence over sense. There is a special figure of speech—I forget what it’s called—in which what is said sounds marvelous but turns out to be utter nonsense when you come to ask what it means.
Obviously if the translator translates the meaning but not the marvelous sound, he has failed utterly to understand that nothing can be gained by sacrificing a magical sound and forcing a meaning on a phrase that is meant to be meaningless—as in the phrase “pale beyond porch and portal.”
Swinburne is full of these meaningless sound effects, but here he is at his best, combining meaning with music:
I am tired of tears and laughter,
And men that laugh and weep;
Of what may come hereafter
For men that sow and reap:
I am weary of days and hours,
Blown buds of barren flowers,
Desires and dreams and powers
And everything but sleep.
From too much love of living,
From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving
Whatever gods there be
That no life lives forever,
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
Winds somewhere safe to sea.
I had no particular love of poetry when I was a child, any more than the average. It was at the age of thirteen I had a near mystical experience brought on by a combination of factors: the onset of puberty, the intoxication of falling in love for the first time, and the random opening of a book in my father’s library on a sultry summer evening.
I remember distinctly it was a beautiful little book bound in green vellum called The Collected Poems of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The first lines that met my eyes were these: lines which gave me such a frisson of delight that I went into an instantaneous trance. Never again in my life was I to experience such exquisite rapture brought on by the entrancement of mere words:
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree,
Where Alph the sacred river ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
There is something about those lines that never fails to produce in me a feeling of awe and mystery that brings me to the brink of tears. Indeed, I have tears in my eyes right now. Why? I have no idea. The loveliness of the language is obviously an operative factor. Just the word “Xanadu”, repeated several times like a mantra, is enough to produce chemical changes in my brain and trigger an altered state of consciousness.
This verse never fails me. I use it like a prayer.
Whenever I am sad and weepy, I say it to myself, and I am slowly transported into a world of Platonic forms and higher entities—and feel fit to converse with the angels.
JILL KARLIN, VISIONARY ARTIST AND YOGINI, April 2008, with three of her paintings: two house portraits and The Dolphin Dream, 1997, 4′ x 9′ oils on canvas, painted during a prolific period during which the artist found time to write fifteen books and swim in the wild with dolphins off the coast of Florida.
Jill Karlin, Visionary Artist
Dr Lasha Darkmoon
Though I have never actually met Jill Karlin, I am perhaps better qualified to write about her than almost any other person alive today.
This is because I myself, a one-time artist turned art critic, have written extensively on cultural matters both academically and on the internet, and I do have some knowledge of Ms Karlin and her work.
Karlin wrote to me about a year and a half ago in response to one of my online essays on art. We struck up an almost instantaneous friendship and have been corresponding ever since.
I fell in love with Karlin’s art almost at once, detecting in her visionary paintings the influence of some of my favorite painters: Matisse, Gauguin, Henri Rousseau and Grandma Moses. From the study of these great artists Karlin obviously derived great benefit, but in no sense can her work be described as derivative. It has a unique freshness of its own. Perhaps the quality that distinguishes her work above all is its chaste and childlike simplicity—its rare innocency of eye.
‘BREATHLESS SIMPLICITY’. Italian street scene, painted in sunny Tuscany, 1989, 12″ x 16″, mixed media pen and ink and watercolor. In a few delicate brushstrokes, Karlin has managed to capture all the airy charms and romance of Italy.
It was clear to me right from the beginning that Karlin and I were in a sense kindred spirits, and that she inhabited the same world of imagination that I did: a world known to me and my personal friends as “the realms of gold” — or Exotica Fantastica.
‘THE FOREST PRIMEVAL’, c. 1992, 4′ x 5′, oil painting on tabletop (detail).
Reminiscent of Henri Rousseau’s evocative The Dreamand Manet’s Dejeuner sur L’Herbe, not to mention Goya’s La Maja Desnuda, this superb example of semi-surrealistic exotica fantasticawas offered to me as a gift by Karlinin October 2009, only a month after our first exchange of emails. Convinced that the painting would one day be worth a lot of money and not wishing to take advantage of the artist’s impulsive generosity, I was forced to decline her kind offer. The charming nude reclining in the bathtub, incidentally, is the artist herself — the purple-haired princess of the Forest Primeval.
Broadly speaking, Karlin’s art and life run parallel courses and can be divided into two significant periods, each with its own subdivisions. The watershed event that separates these two periods is the climactic meeting with the most important person in her life, the man she was to marry: the architectural genius Lee Porter Butler, founder of Ekotecture.
It could be said that there are basically two periods in Karlin’s artistic evolution: Before Lee and After Lee.
It is in the earlier period that Karlin was particularly prolific, turning out a vast body of work and enjoying exhibitions all over the world, while she lived a peripatetic life of Bohemian adventure in Paris, London and Rome—doubtless with the occasional jaunt to sunny Florence where the great Renaissance masters accomplished their finest creations.
‘Umbrian Hills’ (details unavailable). A correspondent of mine writes: “This painting conjures up for me a vanished world of bosky glades and sylvan summers in the warm Mediterranean southlands. I think of Milton’s famous lines ‘Thick as autumnal leaves that strow the brooks / In Vallambrosa, where th’ Etrurian shades / High over-arch’d imbower’….A lost world indeed, never to be recaptured except by the skilled painter’s brush or the poet’s shining phrase.” (Quoted from a private email to this author).
‘BLUE SKY ABOVE THE ROOFTOPS’.Via della Vita, Roma, Italia, 1978, 22″ x 30″, mixed media pen and ink, gouache and watercolors. Like the picture above, this was one of many paintings done during Karlin’s happy days in Italy—a particularly prolific period in which the artist imbibed the influence of the great classical masters.
Karlin’s second artistic period appears to have involved, initially at any rate, less painting and more inward exploration: more meditation, more yoga, and, above all, with her husband Lee Porter Butler, the birthing of a revolutionary new ecological concept known as Ekotecture. (See here, here and here).
Let me now review some of the highlights of Jill Karlin’s fascinating and eventful life.
After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design in 1976, Karlin embarked upon her career with her first one person show at Boston Center for The Arts. At this time, she was teaching art at an exclusive prep school, a post she retained for several years before setting off for a stint of art study in Rome. She then returned to America where she took her Masters degree at Boston University School of Fine Arts. Here she was to learn traditional techniques under teachers imbued with an innate admiration for the Renaissance masters.
It was during this period that Karlin began experimentations with egg tempera and completed a series of large oil paintings called The Peaceable Kingdom. She had been inspired by American naïve primitive painters who had visions of an arcadian paradise world, a sort of bucolic Utopia, in which swords are beaten into plowshares and the leopard lies down with the lamb.
‘THE PEACEABLE KINGDOM’ (1981),6′ x 8′, oils on canvas, unfinished. An earlier version of several such “earthly paradise paintings” with the same title.
In 2000, Karlin was to win the prestigious Philip Hulitar awardat the Society of Four Arts in Palm Beachfor her controversial and imaginative painting, What Does A Dolphin Dream About? This was painted in a similar style and delved into the same set of preoccupations: the interface of the real world with the world of dreams and reverie.
Here was a serene vision of a world at peace with itself: a theme that was to play an integral part in Karlin’s subsequent life and career and which was to serve as the hallmark of her deliciously psychedelic ‘Dolphin Dream’ paintings in later years.
THE PEACEABLE KINGDOM MULTI-COMPOSITE. Here Karlin is seen at her vibrant best…the exotic world of her imagination receives artistic validation in lovely forms and lush colors seldom seen in “real lfe”. We see depicted here, in the evocative words of Edward Burne-Jones, “a beautiful romantic dream of something that never was, never will be—in a better light than any light that ever shone—in a land no one can define or remember, only desire—and from the forms divinely beautiful.”
Karlin’s art took off in the 1980s. In 1981, she was to receive a grant as Artist in residence at Villa Montalvo. Here she was to paint a series of monumental landscape paintings in oils, inspired by the beautiful countryside in which she was living. She would strap 5′ x 9′ stretched canvases onto the roof of her VW bus and wander the country in search of vistas to inspire her imagination. This process brought her into contact with a vanishing America. It was heartrendingly sad.
She was to meet farmers who were selling their land for a pittance in what would later become “Silicone Valley”. She was to paint the last patches of precious green earth. The peach and cherry orchards that John Steinbeck wrote about so movingly, the verdant vistas that were rapidly being swallowed up by the voracious new monster of technology: she was to paint all this evanescent world from early morning to late at night—sometimes working feverishly by moonlight, with nothing to sustain her but her will and the desire to capture on canvas the fleeting moment.
Sadly, none of these otherworldly paintings, painted in a Van Gogh state of heightened sensitivity, have survived. They were lost to posterity when a mysterious fire broke out and destroyed Karlin’s home in the Santa Cruz valley. This was to happen just a few months after her well-received exhibition at Villa Montalvo.
A highly lucrative period of commercial success was to follow for Karlin which was to compensate in some measure for the destruction of some of her finest paintings.
An art dealer was to commission a series of large floral watercolors for placement in the presidential suites of luxury hotels in Dallas and Atlanta. Karlin spent several hours a day working in the greenhouses and arboretum of orchid fancier Walter Hunnewell, president of Horticulture magazine. It was in fact the artist’s love of orchids that finally brought her to Palm Beach where she became widely known for her beautiful orchid paintings.
Karlin’s watercolors from this period are extraordinarily detailed in spite of their huge size. She was to experiment with paint in audacious new ways, letting the paint drip, squiggle and coagulate into bizarre and unexpected shapes on the canvas. Her Miltonia orchids positively bleed, like flowers crying blood.
FLOWER AND LEAF MULTI-COMPOSITE…The botanical detail is breathtaking…the flora of Paradisus Terrestris, the terrestrial paradise, charms the eye and tranquilizes the troubled heart.
Some time during this period, Karlin was to read an account in Esquire magazine about seven Cosmonauts who reported seeing, from the porthole of their spacecraft, an angel with leviathan wings gliding through the ethereal spaces.
Inspired by this article, she embarked on a series of handmade paper pieces called “The Cosmic Garden”. Dramatic and powerful, bizarre but beautiful, these abstract floral forms had a mystique about them that gives the sensitive viewer a little frisson—as if these were personal decorations worn by the angels themselves.
Jill Karlin, ‘Daffodil Hill’
During this prolific period, Karlin was supporting herself with commissions of her well-known “House Portraits”. These meticulously executed works of art commemorate the history of a place, a building, or even a boat, in Karlin’s distinctly American naïve primitive style. Here we have a patchwork quilt in the border, with the central image being the focus of the eye. A multiplicity of images help to create the story in the border. These paintings were snapped up at once by museums, civic centers, 5-star hotels, and private buyers who knew they were on to a good thing.
BLITHEWOOD MANOR FARM,22″ x 30″, c. 1988, mixed media gouache, pen and ink and watercolors. One of Karlin’s specially commissioned paintings during the period when she owned a small art gallery in Palm Beach.
‘LE MARIAGE’, 1988, 12″ x 16″, mixed media pen and ink watercolor and gouache. This exquisite house portrait was painted to celebrate her sister Robin’s wedding at the family home of forty years : 20 Old Farm Road, Newton, Mass. This is the house Karlin grew up in and spent her formative years.
Perhaps a high water mark in Karlin’s art career was her trip to India and Nepal in 1988. She had decided to visit the Indian subcontinent to learn advanced yoga techniques under the best oriental masters, but she was to be sidetracked from this pursuit. She was to spend most of her time painting. India was vast, and it had a lot to offer in the way of variety and intellectual stimulation. India, after all, is where it all began.
Jill Karlin, Yogini, April 2008 , Palm Beach, doing the dynamic backward bend known as the Eka Pada Chrakasana, or the Wheel, a yogic posture that stimulates all the chakras or energy centers and confers enormous health benefits. Karlin was to break three vertrabae in her spine during an international yacht race—the Puerta Vallarta-Acapulco run—but was to regain full mobility doing remedial yoga. She was to lose two inches in height, however, as a result of her accident. Now 5’8” tall, she has managed to retain her slim figure and youthful vitality owing to a strict regime of diet, yoga and meditation.
A fortuitous meeting with multimillionaire Biki Oberoi, owner of the Hotel Oberoi chain, and his future wife, Mirja Jogic, was to bear fruit. Impressed by her paintings, Mr Oberoi decided he would like to exhibit Karlin’s paintings in one of his numerous hotels. After extensive travels in Egypt with Biki and Mirja, Karlin was to exhibit 108 of her Indian and Nepalese paintings in New Delhi.
These works are among her best, reminiscent in many ways of Gauguin’s Polynesian paintings: sprightly and vibrant canvases in which the colors literally scream at the eye and the sun burns in the hot sky like a brass furnace. Electric green fields pulse with an eerie light. The scarlet and orange robes of the people bludgeon the eye like a sledgehammer. The azure sky resembles a peacock’s wing, shining brighter than the most cerulean blue ever seen. How it was possible for Karlin to gain these uncanny effects is a mystery to me. Few artists I know possess such a variety of versatile talents.
‘INDIA UNDER A PUMPKIN YELLOW SUN.’Camel Fair, Pushkar, 1989, 36″ x 48″, oils on canvas. Painted while traveling through Rajastan with her hosts Biki Oberoi and his wife Mirja Jojic.
‘BY BLUEWATER LAKE’.Washing Lake Pichiola, Udaipur, India, 1989, 18″ x 24″, mixed media gouache watercolor pen and ink. While in Udaipur — the pink Lake Palace is seen in the background — the artist was to be received at the court of King Arvind of Udaipur who was to become a close personal friend.
I have said enough about the versatile talents of this relatively unknown artist. I will not labor the point. I won’t speak of the subsequent years when under the benign influence of her beloved husband, Lee Porter Butler, a consummate genius in his own right, Karlin was to plow a lonely furrow…not always achieving the acclaim I feel convinced she deserved. She was to see herself passed over and upstaged by a number of shallow pretenders and bogus practitioners of the art of painting. These tatty works fill the galleries now, leaving most visitors bemused if not disgusted. It is only publicity that sells these pretentious works, not merit.
An exhibition of Karlin’s paintings is to take place at the Ross Gallery in Palm Beach at 8.30 p.m. on Friday, February 11. This could well be an historic occasion, a day to remember for art lovers. If I were a Floridian, I would make a point of visiting this exhibition, if only to pick up a bargain. Artists like Karlin are not born every day. And I do believe her paintings will appreciate in value after her death, if not in her lifetime.
This is a painter who has broken her back and mended it herself with remedial yoga exercises. She has swum with dolphins in the Atlantic Ocean and traveled in many strange lands. Like Pater’s Mona Lisa, she has been a “a diver in deep seas”—both in the real world we see around us and in those realms of gold I have referred to previously as Exotica Fantastica.
Who knows…I who live in cold and rainy England, and have yet to meet Karlin, may decide to invest in a plane ticket and fly over to sunny Florida this February for her forthcoming art exhibition.
I will sneak up to Karlin as she stands on one side of the exhibition hall, her skyblue eyes gazing wistfully out of the window. And I will lean over and whisper in her ear, “Hi, it’s me! The stranger you know but have never met! I’ve come to buy one of your paintings!”
And Karlin will turn to me and say, “Take any painting you wish, dear friend. I give it to you free!”
And this is the painting I would choose — if it were not already owned by one of the richest art collectors in India.
THE WORLD OUTSIDE THE WINDOW,1988, 18″ x 24″, mixed media gouache, watercolor and pen and ink. Karlin’s room at the Hotel Vajra in Katmandu, Nepal; this exquisite Matisse-like painting is now owned by multibillionaire Biki Oberoi of the Oberoi Hotel chain. One can almost inhale the fresh air wafting in from the flower gardens below. This precious, fleeting world of haunting beauty is the realm of imagination in which artist Jill Karlin has moved and had her being all her life: the rich interior world of Exotica Fantastica.
Here are two slideshows of Karlin’s artwork which I have only just discovered.
The first will take the reader on a visit to the exhibition at the Ross Gallery of Art in Palm Beach where Karlin’s most recent paintings went on display earlier this year, much to the delight of her many admirers.
The second slideshow is perhaps even more interesting. This brings together Karlin’s most memorable work from the past—her India and Nepal paintings—all set within a background of hauntingly beautiful mantric music. See here
