The Jewish Establishment 73

bSemitism that had not affected them and that, in their bstupid selfishness, they believed never would. There was not ba Jewish group that was dedicated to the principle of bfighting only for Jews and not with genteel, respectable, or bfutile means. There was not a group that had learned the blesson of its crime and sin of the Second World War when its bfears and respectability had allowed it to stand by while six bmillion died, when angry and violent demonstrations bwould have aroused an ignorant America to the fact that bmillions of Jews were being gassed and burned daily and bthat Allied bombing of the death camps and the roads and bbridges that led to them would have saved countless lives. bThe same lack of Jewish feeling, of ability to feel the pain of banother Jew, was manifested once again by the same barons bof assimilation who did not know what being a Jew meant band who harbored such feelings of self-hate because of their bignorance.

bI was sick of hearing the argument that the destruction of ba Jewish neighborhood was not a Jewish problem because bthe “motivation” for the attacks was not anti-Semitism or the bsame argument raised in the cases of quotas and reverse bdiscrimination. Waving aside the blindness that failed to see bthe hatred of the Jew as a central reason, I shouted that it bwas about time that Jewish groups understood that a Jewish bproblem exists whenever a Jew is threatened, for whatever breason!

bAs the weeks went by and the crisis grew while the Jewish bgroups remained passive and mute, I determined that the btime had come for the formation of a new organization, the bfirst truly Jewish movement. It was to be known as the bJewish Defense League.

bThe Jewish Defense League was to be committed to a bradical revolution in the thinking and practice of the Jewish bcommunity; to a return to original, traditional, Jewish bthinking that was based upon the following principles:

b1.aThe Jew rejects any effort to melt or integrate into bnon-Jewish society which is foreign to Judaism. The Jew is a bproud, separate, and exclusive entity with a separate destiny band direction.
