I didn't read this as directed at me but if it was, well, frankly my
dear, I don't give a damn.
25 years ago the same anti-semitic claim was said in response to
political opposition to the state of Israel and support for the PLO.
There must be a trash bin of history.
The above is not empty polemic, devoid of thought. It is theoretical.
I'll not offer an exegesis and fall into a black hole and state
writing. To continue on the same plane, refer to ATP, Year Zero:
Faciality. A quote... the authoritarian process of subjectification
appears most purely in the destiny of the Jewish people. I
refer to the whole plateau. This plateau leads one to understand the
Israeli State as a racist state. This raises two questions: who and
what precisely is anti-semitic? Perhaps the Israeli State. If this
war is a war against racism, how is it possible to say this is not my
war? Even by being The White Man, this may not be so easily possible.
As for the opposition to any idea of a Palestinian homeland and
state. First, lets not apply a crude appropriation of D&Gs anti-state
philosophy and claim opposition to the struggle for this Palestinian
state because they struggle for a state. Palestinian struggles
for a state are an anti-state struggle. Any claim that this struggle
for a state is doomed to fall into the black hole of subjectivity or
state thinking can be simply dealt with by understanding the
Palestinian state is necessary. Again, I will refer to the
Faciality plateau, and also thank Clifford for his postings as they
provide precise examples to be able to think this plateau.
