Isaac Asimov versus the Zionists

Isaac AsimovIt just so happens that while wasting so much of my time replying to the Zionist spam robot machine now flooding Not My Tribe, that I have also been reading an autobiography by Issac Asimov. He was a great Jewish writer on many matters and here is what he says about Zionists.

‘I am not a Zionist, then, because I don’t believe in nations, and because Zionism merely sets up one more nation to trouble the world. It sets up one more nation to have “rights” and “demands” and “national security” and to feel it must guard itself against its neighbors.’

One can read many more quotes by Isaac Assimov And here is a quote from the autobiography I am reading…

From a chapter titled “Anti-Semitism” in I. Asimov, his third autobiographical volume, he discussed how he was distressed by the capability of the historically oppressed (such as the Jews) to in turn become oppressors if given the chance, and writes:

“Right now, there is an influx of Soviet Jews into Israel. They are fleeing because they expect religious persecution. Yet at the instant their feet touched Israeli soil, they became extreme Israeli nationalists with no pity for the Palestinians. From persecuted to persecutors in the blinking of an eye.”

And now we have Russian immigrant and present day Israeli Right Wing politician Avigdor Lieberman to illustrate just what he was writing about. Issac Asimov, just one other of the world’s great Jewish writers! (They sure botched up the Bible though.)

    Tony, Isaac Asimov is one of my faves! Actually he described himself originally as an atheist, then later referred to himself as a humanist and a rationalist. If you have the opportunity, read his “Guide to the Bible.” I thought is was a very good read. Asimov felt the Bible was based on Hebrew mythology. He explains the history, political influences and biographical information of the times and the main subjects.
