Introduction: The Virtual Colonial Motherland as Political Innovation

When Uri Avnery spoke upon receiving the Lev Kopelev prize with Sari Nusseibeh in Cologne, Germany on November 22, 2003, he tried to whitewash Zionism by joking:

What is a Zionist? A Jew who takes the money of a second Jew in order to send a third Jew to Palestine.

This quip has appeared in discussions of Zionism for about 75 years (including recently in the Mondoweiss blog) and hides the facts by putting them in plain view with a sarcastic description that can apply to the colonial office of any imperial state that uses some portion of tax revenue to send settlers to live in a foreign colony. In other words, the goal of Zionism was not so much the establishment of a settlement or state in Palestine as it was of creating an Empire. In the context of the last decades of the nineteenth century, the idea was hardly unreasonable. The newly consolidated German and Italian states felt cheated or left out and fairly quickly sought to enhance their status, wealth and power by acquiring foreign colonies. In the 1880s Eastern European Jews outnumbered Danes, who already had their own colonial Empire. While the Dutch built their physical countryside as they became wealthier and more powerful through enlargement and exploitation of their imperial possessions, Zionists never bothered with a physical territory but expanded and elaborated the organizational capabilities of their virtual colonial motherland as they became richer and more influential in parallel with the development of the Zionist settlement in Palestine.

Because discussing a colonial motherland in connection with Zionism seems oxymoronic by definition within the framework of Zionist ideology and possibly because mainstream academics simply do not take Jewish history and politics seriously enough, the development of this virtual state structure has escaped the attention of all historians and political scientists that have studied the history of Modern Israel and its relationship with the USA. Professors John Mearsheimer and Walt use the term Israel lobby but explain:

We use "Israel lobby" as a convenient shorthand term for the loose coalition of individuals and organizations that actively work to shape U.S. foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction. (The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt, p. 112.)

They add:

As with other special interest groups, the boundaries of the Israel lobby cannot be identified precisely, and there will always be some borderline individuals or organizations whose position is hard to classify. (Ibid, p. 113.)

James Petras writes in The Power of Israel in the United States:

C. Wright Mills once wrote that the US "power elite" ruled by denying it held power. The Zionist elite follows this formula, but defends itself by accusing its adversaries of being "anti-Semites" and pursuing retributive measures that would please former Senator Joseph McCarthy. The Zionist power configuration (ZPC) cannot be understood merely as the "Jewish Lobby" or even the AIPAC, as formidable as it is, with 150 full-time functionaries. The ZPC can best be understood as a complex network of interrelated formal and informal groupings, operating at the international, national, regional and local levels, and directly and systematically subordinated to the State of Israel, its power holders and key decision makers." (p. 46.)

In some regards ZPC is better than Israel lobby, but Petras is incorrect in claiming that the ZPC is "subordinated to the State of Israel, its power holders and key decision makers."

Neither of the two terms does justice to the history or political economy of the Zionist virtual colonial motherland, which this document names by combining combining Iud/aeus (Latin: Jew) with Pol/ create the term Judonia in order to emphasize the analogy with the historical concept of Polonia during the time period when the Polish state had ceased to exist.

Judonia's leadership is unique among imperial governments, for it has no need to compromise with or compensate for the exigencies of ruling an actual physical nation-state. Because Judonia's colonialism and imperialism function in particularly pure forms, they would long ago have become the subjects of immense scholarly inquiry if only mainstream historians and political scientists took Jewish history and internal politics seriously.

A Disenfranchised Elite

The Jews of Commonwealth Poland (Rzeczpospolita Polska, 1505-1795) had lived in the center of a powerful state and constituted an economic elite with easy access to the rulers. In partitioned Poland they were a disenfranchised frustrated transnational elite of a vanished state. Without any relocation whatsoever, the members of this elite now inhabited territories, far less politically and economically significant, at the periphery of the Prussian, Austrian and Russian empires. While on the whole Jewish income was higher than that of their non-Jewish neighbors, it was nowhere near the levels to which many Jews aspired and felt they could achieve if granted access to the central imperial territories. Jews were subjected to various forms of exclusion and discrimination in all three states, and they felt humiliated.

A typical Jewish intellectual harboring such feelings was Peretz Smolenskin. He was a popular albeit not particularly successful writer. He was ostensibly responding to the pogroms following the targeted assassination of Czar Alexander II by a Jewish-led terror squad (see Followup (II): Origins of Modern Jewry) with the essay "Let us search our Ways" (1881):

To our shame and sorrow we must admit that there is no peace and unity among us. We were weak within ­— therefore our strength was little in the day of evil. Would this have happened had we believed in our hearts that the ten million Jewish souls belonged to one nation? Every person in his right senses would reply: No! Why are we treated like this? Because we have sunk so low that our self-respect has died – because we have come to like charity flung at us in disgrace and contempt. (See The Zionist Idea, A Historical Analysis and Reader by Arthur Hertzberg, p. 150.)

Just as the founders of the Dutch or Honorable (British) East India Companies had no inkling that they were founding the Dutch and British Empires (as they were experimenting with the new financial instrument of the joint-stock corporation), Smolenskin shows no obvious consciousness of proposing an Empire for Eastern European Jews as he identifies the territory, manpower, and resources necessary to create a colony:

[English explorers] have established that the [Land of Israel] is very good and that, if cultivated with skill and diligence, it could support fourteen million people. Even if we assume some exaggeration (though in truth there is none) and that there is room for only half that number, Eretz Israel can nonetheless contain all those who might wish to take refuge there. Not all Jews will go there — only those who are destitute or persecuted will look for a place to which to emigrate. It would be enough if only one million of our brethren would go, for it would be a relief both to them and to those remaining in the lands of the dispersion. (Ibid, p. 152.)

Our Jewish philanthropists should therefore not tarry, if they really want to help their less fortunate brethren. They should hasten to buy land and let Jews settle on it to begin a new life. We can be sure that money will not be lacking, if only men of sufficient vision can be found to initiate this project in the right spirit, with a desire to help their people. In all countries there exist such Jews, many more than we know of, who strive to help their people with all their might and main. Only one thing is lacking — a united purpose. As soon as we succeed in achieving unity for this great work, fruition will not be long in coming. (Ibid, p. 153.)

Because of exclusion from governmental or professional employment by law or prejudice, Smolenskin and similar underemployed Jewish intellectuals were available as a pool of organizers for all sorts of political, reformist or radical politics. Members of the then numerically insignificant Zionist intelligentsia developing in the 1880s would eventually become the original bureaucracy as well as the foreign and colonial office of Judonia that was coming into being. Like any other colonial bureaucracy few seem to have ever had any intention of relocating permanently to the Jewish settlement even if they publicly claimed otherwise.

If Smolenskin and fellow early Zionists showed any conscious realization that wealthy Western Jews had sufficient wealth in aggregate to found a low-budget colonial empire that did not have to distract itself with the maintenance of a physical colonial motherhood, they would count as some of the most astute practical political thinkers of the nineteenth century, but they like most political actors seem to have been sleepwalking through history and could not come up with the right marketing gimmick to shake money out of the pockets of western Jews.

Judonia Rising working Paper Part 2 contains about seventy-six pages within its main body as well as twenty eight pages of notes.

The table of contents on pp. 1-3 identifies the main divisions of the document.

The second and third sections, Introduction: The Virtual Colonial Motherland as Political Innovation and Disenfranchised Elite, assert that European Jews had the resources, skill set, and mentality to create their own colonial empire.

From the section, Jewish Capabilities and Resources, up to and including the section, Aspects of US Jewish Communal Organization, I attempt to prove this thesis.

Of these sections, probably The Economics of Judea and High and Low Politics of Nascent Judonia are most important.

The section Judonia, Balfour Declaration and Afterward briefly summarizes the history of the Virtual Colonial Motherland (i.e., Judonia) from the Balfour Declaration to this day.

The Roaring 90s in particular points out
  • that the USA has become a client state of Judonia and
  • that President George W. Bush plays the role of Vidkun Quisling or Marshal Pétain.
The section, The Context of Jewish Violence and Subversion, asks whether the thesis is simply an updated version of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion while the concluding section, Fighting the Dystopic Future, addresses possible developments in the near term.

We Americans have about eight months to free ourselves from the monkey on our back.

I need to finish and (self-)publish the book as quickly as possible.

In its current form the main body of The Israel Lobby and American Society has approximately 132 pages with many web references.

It will probably grow about three times larger as I incorporate hyperlinked material directly into the text.

I will use following structure.
Not only do all the components require work, but completing the Judonia Rising Working Paper Part 2 would probably require archival research, interviews, and forensic statistical analysis.

Because the book will propose strategies and tactics to thwart the Israel Lobby, which is the public face of Judonia, I need to test generalized versions of techniques
that I developed to drive Summers from the Harvard Presidency and to harass the David Project during the Roxbury Mosque controversy.

I do not have the resources necessary to fund and to complete this project in the critical time frame.

thanks for the heads up. as someone who cares a lot about social justice, the situation in palestine is extremely troubling. i definitely agree that american imperialism has given israel too free a rein, and allowed her not to have to come to a settlement.

when you talk about the dismantling of israel (i use that term instead of the emotionally charged destruction, because i think emotions need to be taken out of the discussion,) the one thing i will give you is that by expanding the discussion to include that possibility on one side (the other side being, of course, the indefinite continuation of the interment of the palestinian people,) there may be a chance to find actual middle ground which would include more for the palestinian people than just gaza and the west bank.

i think you need to be cognizant of how your emotional attachment to this issue is clouding your judgment. on the one hand you say your views are not fueled by anti-semitism, but go on to say that you don't like jews. that's a pretty big inconsistency.

since you don't feel a need for political correctness (and i support this freedom of expression,) i will respond in turn that there is no question that the palestinian people are their own worst enemies. in the entire history of p.r., there has been no one as absurdly bad at this than the palestinians! every time they gain the moral high-ground from some illegal israeli act, they turn around and blow up some school children. regardless of the arguments of struggle, this is just plain the worst p.r. in history, and speaks greatly toward the current plight.

the point being, as long as anger fuels the interaction, there will never be a settlement, and again and again the palestinians will play into the hands of the israelis.

personally, i think you are confusing the problems of british, german, soviet, american (etc.) imperialsim and the disregard for human rights and international law by these empires, essentially a problem of fear, greed and un-moderated capitalism, with a very small part of the puzzle.

the focus on the injustices that have plagued humanity from the beginning of civilization as a "jewish problem" has not only disturbing historical ramification, but is clear scapegoating.

the tail can't wag the dog- despite the attractiveness of this metaphor, it is a physical impossibility.

we need to look at educating the american people, so they don't blindly facilitate every kind of human rights outrages indiscriminately around the world, not blaming jews.

i do appreciate your openness and willingness to engage in discourse, clearly you have done a lot of research. i hope to convince you of the sagacity of a moderate approach.

Your site is interesting. Without studying as exensively as you have, I suspect that you are on the right track. I don't know that laying out a case against Judonia is necessary for change, but I can see reasons for doing so. Good luck.
