Jewish Slave Mentality

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk


The Stockholm Syndrome

In 1973 , three women and one man were taken hostage by a convicted bank robber, then on parole, at a Stockholm bank. The robber, Jan Eric Olson, negotiated the release from prison of his friend Clark Olafson. They held the hostages for six days in one of the bank vaults. When the hostages were released, none of them would testify against either captor in court but instead raised money for their defense.

This peculiar conduct in which the victims sided with the aggressors has since then been called the Stockholm syndrome.

Likewise, the granddaughter of publisher William Randolph Hearst, Patty Hearst, was taken and held hostage by the Symbionese Liberation Army, a California terrorist organization. Yet she was recorded denouncing her family as well as the police under her new name Tonya and was later seen working with the Symbionese Liberation Army to rob corporate banks in San Francisco. She publicly asserted her sympathies towards the SLA and their pursuits as well.

Yvonne Ridley, a British reporter for the Sunday Express, was captured for 11 days by the Afghan Taliban in 2001. After her release, she became a fervent Muslim, denouncing the values and lifestyles of the west and praising Muslim practice.

There are numerous other examples of victims siding with their enemies and accepting the values and attitudes of those who have victimized them.

All this applies to the Jewish community, who evidently suffer from Stockholm syndrome in a major fashion.

There are numerous examples of Jews siding with their enemies, including those who seek the destruction of Israel. An excellent example of this attitude was the recent statement by the president of the Union for Reform Judaism, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, opposing Senate confirmation of David Friedman to be ambassador to Israel. Reform Jews object to Friedman because he supports the survival of Israel and rejects Arab terrorism. Friedman correctly understands that if a Palestinian state is carved out of Israelís small territory, it will be used to attack and murder the Jewish population, which would then live on an indefensible strip of land along the Mediterranean coast. Friedman is therefore opposed to the establishment of a Palestinian state, which would definitely lead to the mass murder of another 6 million Jews on the part of 1,500,000,000 Muslims whose armies and and weapons would immediately be located within the proposed Palestinian state. In short, those who oppose Friedman promote the destruction of Israel.

Then there is an organization whose members call themselves J Street. They too oppose the confirmation of Friedman, but go further and support Arab terrorism, seek the destruction of Israel, find nothing wrong with murdering Jews, and side with the so-called BDS movement, which seeks to boycott Jewish business and attack Jews, not only in Israel but also in Europe and the United States.

In this country we also have Jews who hate other Jews with a venom that resembles the worst conduct of our enemies everywhere. These Jews want to destroy the Orthodox Jewish community, reject the Jewish religion, and promote atheism instead. In a recent survey  by PEW Religious Research, 51% of those deemed to be Jewish claimed to be atheists.

All of this agitation against Israel and the Jewish people can be interpreted to result from the Jewish Stockholm syndrome, which never finds anything wrong with those who seek to destroy us. The motive here is that these Jews want to identify with the powerful and the strong, whom they fear. After all, there are 1,500,000,000 Muslims in this world and only 13 million Jews.

One evident consequence of this rejection and assault on Israel has been the recent attack on Jewish cemeteries in which the followers of the anti-Israel haters overturn Jewish gravestones, just as the Nazis did in Germany 75 years ago. The anti-Israel haters also call in bomb threats to Jewish community centers. The reason for this increase in anti-Jewish hate in the United States is that anti-Israel harangue and anti-Israel propaganda easily translates into anti-Jewish conduct in this country.

The haters make no distinction between Israel and American Jews, so that American Jews who denounce David Friedman for supporting Israel are bolstering and supporting the attack on the American Jewish community.

This attack is now spearheaded by the Democrat party, which just elected a chairman and former Obama administration official who makes no secret of his contempt for Jews and who has associated himself publicly and shamelessly with Keith Ellison, a congressman and follower of Louis Farrakhan, without doubt the most prominent Jew hater in America. Yet the Democrats are supported by a vast majority of Jews who are willing to kowtow to the hatemongers and deny the attack on the Jewish American community by the very party they support.

Shalom uívracha.
