Ms. is Anti Semitic and needs Jews on its' Board

Today Israel's patience with the 6 months of DAILY rocket attacks from Gaza ran out. There has been no media attention to the daily rocket attacks but all the media will react to Israel's targeted attack on the leadership of the terror, especially if so called civilians, amongst whom those leaders hide and are hidden, die in the attacks.

This is anti-Semitic media coverage and Ms. is part of that. The blogosphere is filled with the news that Ms. recently refused an ad showing the women in high office of all the branches of Israel government. The ad said: "This Is Israel. "

Knowing I had a butcher abortion when it was illegal, Ms., ever the exploiter, sent me an appeal for money to "keep abortion legal". MS has never done one damn thing to keep abortion legal and there are plenty of organizations that fight everyday for this right and really do need my money. So on the back of their letter, I wrote that I would not give a dime to an anti Semitic group that supports the Sharia law of Hamas and Hezbollah in the Palestinian territories. I referred them to the books of the women burned alive in honor killing attempts.

I believe Smeal and Spillars (who ruined NOW with this same crap) should be fired and neutral women should replace them. This taking sides is not feminist and will help neither Jew nor Arab nor the women living under Sharia. I have several other posts on this -see the others on the green column to your right.

Phyllis Chesler sent me a note in regard to this matter today. She has 3 posts on this matter, one of which is a very interesting history of Ms. She was a founding member and knows Gloria and Robin Morgan intimately and dishes a little some very interesting stuff on where the bodies are buried . Here is a note and an excerpt from her latest post.

"Recently, in the pages of the New York Times, Gloria Steinem wrote that we should not hold the only female Presidential candidate to a higher and different standard than we hold male politicians; when we do, Gloria explained, that’s sexism.

From 1972 on, I have been explaining to Gloria and to other Ms. feminists that we should not hold the only Jewish state to a higher or different standard than we hold all other nations states; when we do, it is called racism or Jew-hatred or anti-Semitism.

Ms magazine, the National Organization for Women, the Feminist Majority, which took over Ms magazine, and far too many Western feminists have, for a long time, been more concerned with the alleged “occupation” of a country that does not exist (Palestine) than they have been concerned with the occupation of women’s bodies world-wide, especially in Islamic countries.

Before I came here today I quickly looked through some issues of Ms online from 2000-2007. The editorial bias is blatantly and consistently anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian.Apparently, Palestinians are the sacred victims who are pure and can do no wrong. Israelis are the Nazi-like aggressors and occupiers who can do nothing right.

This is not the Ms I once knew so long ago. This is a Stalinized, post-colonial, anti-imperialist, multi-culturally relativist kind of Ms. This is a feminism that has been utterly Palestinianized.This does not serve the cause of Palestinian women well—nor does it serve the cause of women anywhere. It is cowardly to desert the one democracy in the region and give a free pass to barbaric, totalitarian, and fascist regimes.

This kind of feminism betrays the women and men in the Third World who need feminist support the most. I am not a cultural relativist. I believe in a feminism which is rational, universal, and meant for all people.Israel is not perfect—what country is?—yet only Israel has been universally demonized. The United Nations specializes in this, it is the only thing they do well. They certainly don’t stop genocides in progress.

Ms has learned its lessons well from the United Nations and from all the propaganda that has swirled through the western democracies for the last 40 years. For the UN to demonize Israel is ironic, since Israel is the country that absorbed its refugees (nearly 800,000 Jewish refugees who were forced to flee from Arab Muslim countries) at its own expense.

The Palestinian (terrorists) have been living high on the world public dole for five or more generations. The civilians are impoverished and at the mercy of their tyrannical leaders.

From the start, feminism has been unfairly, even viciously attacked. I do not want to do that here today. World events have made feminism more important but, to my sorrow, most Western feminists, including Ms magazine feminists, prefer to blame America and Israel for the indigenous barbarism of Third World countries .

They are also, pro forma, very proud of their cultural relativism. They say they don’t want to “judge” anyone else’s culture or country. Unless, of course, that country is Jewish Israel. Feminists slander Israel when they describe her as an apartheid state—when in fact, Islam is really the largest practitioner of both gender and religious apartheid not only in Muslim countries but also in the West.

Western feminists won’t say this. They would lose their funding, their cozy lives, their positions in universities and their cachet in the media; their friends too. Perhaps even their lives.

When I say this on campuses, I need police officers to protect my right to speak." ...................................................


OK that is the end of the excerpt.....
For more go to Cheslers Chronicles and leave a comment. She has more interesting comments on Arab and Persian feminists and how they have been treated by western feminists.

Hi there,

The way your post is presently formatted, it is difficult to ascertain which comments are yours and which are Dr. Chelser's. Any chance you might make that clearer? (E.g. through blockquote tags enclosing Chesler's comments, or at least quotation marks and such?)

Also, the name of the magazine is Ms. (lower case s, with the period), not "MS" (both letters in uppercase, sans period); alternately, it's Ms. Magazine. I read "MS" and I think "Multiple Sclerosis." Not trying to nitpick, but since the publication is the central subject of your critique, I figured you'd prefer to get the name right.

Best - V.

Dear V

I tried to follow your directions and screwed up. the quote should be before
"You may read my prepared remarks at my blogsite.....

However I put the QUOTES at the beginning of the words on her site, then I realized I had to put them at her Intro - went back tried to do it and in the meantime your comment had published AND NOW IT WON'T PUBLISH FURTHER CORRECTIONS!

But I will keep trying. I don't do block quotes because I try to save space as my posts are so long.

I like people who nit pick - it makes us all better.

Well here I go back to the blog publish nightmare.
