"GOLEM" (Serbs and Jews)

By William Markiewicz

Stanislawski was Russian -- probably of Polish origin as his name indicates -- a theatre director who was fascinated with the Jewish theatre and revolutionised it. How strong must have been Jewish culture in Europe to attract a non-Jew to its orbit! A two thousand year old fragment of European culture is gone forever and the world will never again know what Stanislawski knew. Stanislawski was inspired by the legend of the Golem, a powerful supernatural entity created by the Cabalistic Rabbi Loew (16th century) in Prague to defend the Jews against pogroms. Golem is perhaps the first android in literature. Once the Golem did his job, the Jews, who didn't fear him and considered him strange and no longer useful, started to torment him. As a matter of fact, they gave him the same treatment the anti-Semites gave them. Enraged, Golem attacked the Jews, and the rabbi destroyed him. The Golem legend attracted not only Stanislawski; Golem was the hero of a varied literature and of expressionistic filmmaking at the beginning of the century. The lines below show how the idea of Golem applies to our times:

Fragments of interview by Mr. James Harff (director of Ruder & Finn Global Public Affairs) given to Mr. Jacques Merlino well known French journalist in Paris in October 1993. Ruder & Finn are a public relations company:

Harff: For 18 months, we have been working for the Republics of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as for the opposition in Kosovo. Throughout this period, we had many successes, giving us a formidable international image. We intend to make advantage of this and develop commercial agreements with these countries. Speed is vital, because items favourable to us must be settled in public opinion. THE FIRST STATEMENT COUNTS. The retractions have no effect.

Question: What achievement were you most proud of?

Harff: To have managed to put Jewish opinion on our side. ...................

We OUTWITTED three big Jewish organizations - B'Nai Brith Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Committee, and the American Jewish Congress. We suggested to them to publish an advertisement in the New York Times and to organize demonstrations outside the U.N.

This was a tremendous coup. When the Jewish organizations entered the game on the side of the (Muslim) Bosnians, we could promptly equate the Serbs with the Nazis in the public mind. .........

We won by targeting Jewish audience. Almost immediately there was a clear change of language in the press, with the use of words with high emotional content, such as "ethnic cleansing", "concentration camps", etc. which evoked images of Nazi Germany and the gas chambers of Auschwitz. The emotional charge was so powerful that nobody could go against it.

Question: But when you did all of this, you had no proof that what you said was true. You only had the article in Newsday!

Harff: Our work is not to verify information. .....

Question: Are you aware that you took on a grave responsibility?

Harff: We are professionals. We had a job to do and we did it. WE ARE NOT PAID TO BE MORAL.

How can we understand that the Jewish establishment was sucked into the antiSerbian machine so easily? They have nothing to be proud of. Like sheep they accepted Harff's claims, without making the slightest effort to verify the claims. They knew that Harff was paid to do a job. And the rest of the world, like sheep, followed the Jews, as who can be more expert on Nazism than the Jews? The charade continues: the media recently reported that Soros has donated a few million dollars to investigate "Serbian crimes"... Why didn't he donate to investigate all the crimes? Investigating only one side increases chances that their crimes will be blown out of proportion by all those unconfirmed stories about 'mega-rapes' and mountains of corpses which have since revived . Also, focusing on one side's crimes automatically puts the crimes of the other side into shadow. The tragedy is, for both Serbs and Jews, that Soros is a Jew. Why this fierce Jewish persistence against the Serbs? Never in history until now have the Jews lead a campaign against one particular nation. The Serbs became the Golem for the Jews. The analogy is even stronger when we remember that the Serbs were the least anti-Semitic nation of Europe and defended the Jews from the Nazis during the war. Why were the Serbs different? The answer is simple: anti-Semitism is of theoretical nature, I don't know one single anti-Semite who hates the Jews for personal reasons. It's always religious, racial, social, or, most often, a phenomenon of habit. Rebecca West who knew the Serbs well, described them as people of investigative spirit; of no-nonsense, and no foggy theories. The Serbs have never suffered from Jews until now, and they were not anti-Semites, it's as simple as that. And what will happen now?

It's true that the sources of Serbian misery do not lie only in the diabolical smartness of Ruder & Finn and the poor judgment of the Jewish establishment. For historical reasons the Serbs have no tradition of developing public relations. They also have bad historical luck; for centuries Germanics and Turks have considered the Balkans their backyard. For Germans it's the route to the Mediterranean, and the Turks left there a remnant of the Ottoman empire -- an important Muslim population. The Serbs are the major obstacle to German -- Turkish domination in the Balkans. The New World Order considers that a more powerful Germany means a more stable Europe. As for Turkey, it's a NATO member and US ally so not too much is refused to them. The Greeks also resist NWO, but after the Serbian doom they'll be easy to control as well. So, placed between Germany, Turkey, and the Muslim world, the poor Serbs and Greeks don't count too much and they don't have enough money to buy the services of the devil. All this mess favours the neonazis and the mujahadeen. How will it end? If the Bosnian Serbs are obliged to leave their enclave, they'll go to starve in Serbia because nobody is ready to give a piece of bread to a Serb. If they're obliged to give away all Kosovo, they'll lose their soul because Kosovo for the Serbs is like Mecca for Muslims, Jerusalem for Jews, the Vatican for Catholics. Nobody in the world is at present in the situation of the Serbs.
