Russell Crowe: Anti-Semite of the Week!

Open Jew-bashing is still not condoned in most of the West (whilst in the Middle East, anti-Semitic rhetoric is standard boilerplate for any politician hoping to gain even the office of local rat-catcher), so the age-old hatred must be hidden behind a facade of a greater good.  For a while now, it's been anti-Zionism - "I don't hate Jews.  I hate Zionists, Israel, Jews that stands up for Israel, Jews that refuse to vote Democratic ("neo-cons"), and any Jew who won't volunteer themselves, their people, and their ancestral homeland for self-immolation.  But don't you dare call me anti-Semitic!"

It's starting to get a bit convoluted, but thankfully for the anti-Semitic Left there is a new loophole: anti-circumcision.  It's all the rage, with numerous folks in California (where else?) fighting for ballot initiatives to end the practice entirely.  It's even got it's own propaganda outlet, with anti-circumcision brown-shirt Michael Hess putting out his own comic book entitled Foreskin Man, with imagery that would maker Herr Goebbels blush:

And here come the anti-Semi -sorry, the anti-circumcisers!  Starting with Hollywood's own Russell Crowe:

The stream of tweets began Thursday night, in response to a query from an Australian follower. Though the tweets in question have since been deleted, news outlets reported that the actor wrote, “Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.” Crowe then went on to address Jews directly.

“Many Jewish friends, I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies,” Crowe tweeted.

On Friday morning, after newspapers and celebrity news sites around the world reported on his posts, Crowe apologized over Twitter.

Don't apologize, Russell.  You're just a man ahead of his time.  By mid-summer this new form of anti-Semitism will be all the rage, and Barack Obama will likely be campaigning against it and perhaps pushing federal laws to make the ancient practice illegal - not that he's an anti-Semite, Lord no. 

In the next act of Hollywood "bravery", we'll have leading ladies declaring they won't sleep with men who are circumcised - a nice way of saying "Juden raus!" under the cover of morality. But it does beg the question of how many of them will get their next roles...

So "let it all hang out", Russell.  You've just put the full authority of your celebrity behind a blatantly anti-Semitic campaign.  But don't hide from it, revel in it!  Maybe you can organize a "peace flotilla", to, you know, storm some synagogues on the coast in the name of anti-Semit...oops, there I go again.  In the name of anti-Zionism, or anti-circumcision-ism, or whatever fig leaf the Left uses to cover their lustful urge for the destruction of the Jewish people...

Interesting. Very similar attacks on circumsicion have recently been published in Swedish media (november 2011)by a group of Swedish organized atheists who seem to be inspired by Richard Dawkins. When I saw it, I first believed it was a purely Swedish phenomenon but now I have started to suspect that it is perhaps a part of an international campaign that may be more or less orchestrated. The language used has anti-semitic components but the attacks may be part of a larger campaign against religion in general. It may be so that the issue of circumcision is regarded by atheists as simply a suitable "battlefield" to attack religion.//Falstaff

Ha! I won't sleep with a man who hasn't been circumcised.
