The Key Jewish – Gentile Difference

Comments to Steve Sailer: “An easy way to understand the difference between Jews and white gentiles is: Jews kick white gentiles’ asses; white gentiles kiss Jews’ asses.”

Christoph Donnellan: Jews don’t kick any asses and only manipulate white gentiles via guilt-tripping, i.e. ‘you owe us for anti-Semitism, pogroms, and The Holocaust.’

Chaim Amalek: What if one is both white and Jewish? Of course, this is not an issue in my life, as I am a pure semite and look the part in all respects, but whither the ger, the convert who brings goyishe genes to the table?

This is why I do all my business with goyim at my local Museum of Tolerance. And it is why LA’s Museum of Tolerance is the best place for a short little Jew like me to take an innocent flaxen-haired shiksa out on a date.

I’ve not doubt but that if we required a small but tasteful Holocaust Memorial inside every McDonalds, the teenage patrons of such establishments would be better behaved.

Diaspora Jews Becoming More Immigration Skeptical

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* I think the Jewish diaspora strategy is slowly evolving from invite the world (50 years ago) to invite/invade the world (10-20 years ago) to a more right-wing, invade but don’t invite the world, as is emerging in France. Ultimately invite the world isn’t sustainable because it eventually endangers the survival of Israel.

From a white perspective this more straight-forward, conservative approach is an improvement on previous policies but it still makes it difficult for the West to avoid getting into unnecessary wars in the Middle East and triggering waves of unwanted immigrants in a westward direction.

Ashkenazi Jews and Arabs have very different genes

Arabs often have next to no European ancestry and average IQs around 85 while Ashkenazi average IQs are around 108.

Greg Cochran writes in 2014: I’m looking at abstracts on Ashkenazi genetics from ASHG 2013 and SMBE 2014 – by the same group, with Shai Carmi as the lead author. They did 128 whole genomes, 50x deep.

They concluded Ashkenazi Jews were about 50% Middle Eastern and 50% European. In the 2013 abstract, they were pretty specific: they estimated the European ancestry fraction at 55% , plus or minus 2%. ( In our book, we had a crude estimate of about 40% European ancestry.) They estimated the split between Europeans and Middle Easterners at about 9000 BC: which sounds about the right date for the entry of the Sardinian-like farmers. From other data (mtDNA) , and from the fact that you see almost zero WHG or ANE in Ashkenazi autosomal genes, one can conclude that the European admixture was mostly Italian, with some southern French. Very little German or Slavic – by that time serious endogamy had set in..

By looking at IBD segments, they conclude that there was indeed a bottleneck in Ashkenazi ancestry, ~350 individuals, followed by a rapid expansion. IBD analysis should pin this down quite accurately. They estimate that this was about 800 years ago, but I would bet money that it was a little earlier – more like 1100 years ago. In other words, the founding bottleneck, the time when the ancestors of the Ashkenazi Jews moved from Italy into the Rhineland, not a later persecution bottleneck. I don’t think the population ever dropped that low in the persecutions. I say this because of what the history looks like to me, and because of certain things that suggest that our models of recombination may be a bit off. 350 isn’t a terribly tight bottleneck, as long as it doesn’t last long – and it’s hard to see how any bottleneck could generate several unusually deleterious recessives that concentrate in a few metabolic paths. Or make you smart.

Many people looking at Jewish population history have boggled at the idea of a small group expanding to a few million in a thousand years or so, and have come up with various scenarios other than Italy -> Rhineland -> Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth model, such as Koestler’s Khazar theory or Wexler’s idea that the Ashkenazi Jews came from the East. Koestler and Wexler are both wrong, by the way – the genetic evidence is quite clear.

There was never anything particularly particularly improbable about the Ashkenazi population expansion. Moderate prosperity, which the Ashkenazim had for most of their sojourn in Europe, easily allows a family to average 3 surviving kids. Given that rate of growth, a population increases by a factor of more than one million in 35 generations. Ask the French Canadians, or the Puritans, or the Boers.

Support For Israel Means Extensive American Intervention Overseas

Norman Podhoretz, then editor of Commentary magazine, said in 1979: “There was, to be sure, one thing that many of even the most passionately committed American Zionists were reluctant to do, and that was to face up to the fact that continued American support for Israel depended upon continued American involvement in international affairs– from which it followed that an American withdrawal into the kind of isolationist mood that prevailed most recently between the two world wars, and that now looked as though it might soon prevail again, represented a direct threat to the security of Israel.”

The Final Solution

Timothy Snyder writes: The Final Solution, as the Nazis called it, was originally only one of the exterminatory projects to be implemented after a victorious war against the Soviet Union. Had things gone the way that Hitler, Himmler, and Göring expected, German forces would have implemented a Hunger Plan in the Soviet Union in the winter of 1941–1942. As Ukrainian and south Russian agricultural products were diverted to Germany, some 30 million people in Belarus, northern Russia, and Soviet cities were to be starved to death. The Hunger Plan was only a prelude to Generalplan Ost, the colonization plan for the western Soviet Union, which foresaw the elimination of some 50 million people.

The Germans did manage to carry out policies that bore some resemblance to these plans. They expelled half a million non-Jewish Poles from lands annexed to the Reich. An impatient Himmler ordered a first stage of Generalplan Ost implemented in eastern Poland: ten thousand Polish children were killed and a hundred thousand adults expelled. The Wehrmacht purposefully starved about one million people in the siege of Leningrad, and about a hundred thousand more in planned famines in Ukrainian cities. Some three million captured Soviet soldiers died of starvation or disease in German prisoner-of-war camps. These people were purposefully killed: as with the siege of Leningrad, the knowledge and intention to starve people to death was present. Had the Holocaust not taken place, this would be recalled as the worst war crime in modern history.

In the guise of anti-partisan actions, the Germans killed perhaps three quarters of a million people, about 350,000 in Belarus alone, and lower but comparable numbers in Poland and Yugoslavia. The Germans killed more than a hundred thousand Poles when suppressing the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Had the Holocaust not happened, these “reprisals” too would be regarded as some of the greatest war crimes in history. In fact they, like the starvation of Soviet prisoners of war, are scarcely recalled at all beyond the countries directly concerned. German occupation policies killed non-Jewish civilians in other ways as well, for example by hard labor in prison camps. Again: these were chiefly people from Poland or the Soviet Union.

The Germans killed somewhat more than ten million civilians in the major mass killing actions, about half of them Jews, about half of them non-Jews. The Jews and the non-Jews mostly came from the same part of Europe. The project to kill all Jews was substantially realized; the project to destroy Slavic populations was only very partially implemented.

Auschwitz is only an introduction to the Holocaust, the Holocaust only a suggestion of Hitler’s final aims. Grossman’s novels Forever Flowing and Life and Fate daringly recount both Nazi and Soviet terror, and remind us that even a full characterization of German policies of mass killing is incomplete as a history of atrocity in mid-century Europe. It omits the state that Hitler was chiefly concerned to destroy, the other state that killed Europeans en masse in the middle of the century: the Soviet Union. In the entire Stalinist period, between 1928 and 1953, Soviet policies killed, in a conservative estimate, well over five million Europeans. Thus when one considers the total number of European civilians killed by totalitarian powers in the middle of the twentieth century, one should have in mind three groups of roughly equal size: Jews killed by Germans, non-Jews killed by Germans, and Soviet citizens killed by the Soviet state. As a general rule, the German regime killed civilians who were not German citizens, whereas the Soviet regime chiefly killed civilians who were Soviet citizens.

No immigrants from countries where you can’t drink the water

This map is a good proxy for IQ. High IQ countries produce safe drinking water, low IQ countries produce crap water.

From As you can see, the CDC is very cautious, essentially arguing that only the richest countries have safe drinking water. In my personal experience, drinking tap water in Argentina, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Costa Rica, Slovakia, Russia, and even the dread Mexico has worked out just fine. But your mileage may vary.

Are Muslim Persian women as hot as or hotter or less hot than Jewish Persian women?

Do they differ in appearance? My impression is that they look similar. I’ve seen a lot of hot Islamic women from Iran.

How Do Jews & The NYT Regard Japan?

Comment to Steve Sailer:

* A single article that’s heavy on dubious statements and light on any evidence seems a bit flimsy to hang that assertion on. Japanese are pretty skeptical of immigration in general but the idea that they are admired by Jews for it sounds like nonsense.

More relevant to Jewish opinion about Japan is the NYT’s pathological hostility to Japan and the Japanese establishment, going back at least a decade if not more. For an immigration example see this classic hit piece from 2011.

It’s all there: sob story about a poor Indonesian nurse who desperately wants to take jobs away from Japanese nurses (or maybe Japanese robots) but is oppressed by the cruel Japanese language proficiency exam; liberal quotes from immigration advocates with vested interests in undermining Japanese wages; finger wagging about the looming perils of a declining birthrate; laments over the inequity of an immigration policy that mysteriously seems to have no actual defenders.

And of course there’s also the one-sided pro-Chinese and pro-Korean coverage of anything to do with conflicts between either of those countries and Japan. One is tempted to wonder what makes them dislike Japan so much, is it the strait-laced and rule-bound culture that puts them off, or is it just that Japanese girls are less willing to put out for Jewish nerds than Chinese girls are?

* I think one plausible explanation for Jews not worried about non-Jewish nationalism in Japan is that Japan doesn’t really have a discernible population of Jews. Therefore, it won’t affect them. It would be more eye opening for them to write a story like this about a nation with a more significant Jewish population.

My guess is they are using Japan as an example for Israel to follow. And I don’t begrudge them at all. I actually wish our side in the USA would use Japan as an example too. But the MSM has promoted the idea that the Japanese are going to go extinct without immigration. So it has effectively been taken off the table as an example to point to about sane immigration policies.

Our side should work on counter arguments which disprove this notion that Japan will die off without immigration. Japan could be a good example for us to follow. Apparently there are people in Israel who feel that way about Japan.

* What lessons about immigration policy are we supposed to draw from Japan, exactly? Many of the obstacles to immigration in Japan are not the result of government policy: off the top of my head, a high-trust culture that’s opaque to outsiders, a mountain of unwritten rules governing everyday life everybody is expected to follow, and a fiendishly difficult language that’s spoken by no-one else. It also probably helps that the biggest non-Japanese ethnic group has historically strong ties to a country that is fanatically hostile to Japan (North Korea).

Just Keep It Quiet!

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* It’s funny how most men are fine with homosexuals being homosexuals as long as they agree to the unwritten rule that they keep it out of public life.

* One of the interesting questions to which we will probably never get an honest answer is how much gay men incline toward different kinds of attitudes, professions, and subdisciplines, and how much over- and under-representation they exhibit in these domains.

I rather have the impression that there are many more gay men in academe than in the larger population, and that in certain areas — say the classics and logic — they are quite disproportionately represented. Is that impression borne out by the data? God only knows, of course, because we can’t ask such questions today.

But would it be surprising if more gay men than others are attracted to the many beauties of the now very conservative Western Canon, especially with its white male heroes?

* There is also the strange pro Putin tilt to these anti EU parties that maybe more than skin deep. In any event traditional political alliances and orders both in Europe and the US seem to be fracturing and these new amalgamations of anti immigrant/nationalist sentiment are all over the place in regards to economic policy with Le Pen’s FN leaning left and Farage’s UKIP more pro market, free trade. How any of them view NATO and European security isn’t really clear nor does it seem to be a priority to them.

* Gay rights has a different meaning in Europe, it’s more based on privacy rights rather than American-style change the laws, change the culture. European gays don’t want to change the culture. They want their old, permissive cultures. They are the conservatives!

In the US, gays got smart and realized that they weren’t going to win at the ballot box, so full steam ahead changing the laws and more important, get Corporate America (the real rulers of the US) behind you. Tim Cook now offers his female employees free egg-freezing. Ain’t it grand?

Meanwhile The Netherlands, which is far more permissive about gay rights than the US, has outlawed commercial surrogacy. The next frontier in the US in the gay rights movement is to make commercial surrogacy legal in all 50 states so that gay men can have “their own” children. (Forget about the fact that there are two mothers involved: the egg donor and the gestational carrier.)

The gay nationalist thing has a slight echo in the US. Madison Grant never married or had kids; neither did Lawrence Auster. A lot of white nats are people who have low birthrates themselves and are sensitive to the subject. This doesn’t invalidate their observations. Just saying.

* Auster’s eloquent repugnance at anything homoerotic, or onanistic for that matter, seemed genuine to me. A classic case of Burton’s “liveliest disgust”.

Near the end of his life, one of his few female fans offered to conceive a child with his seed. He was flattered, but horrified. How could you do that to your child? Nature without nurture!

* Blood is thicker than water. When pressure is applied, the false constructed marxist identities of class, gender, sexuality all fall apart. What is left is the true identities of kin and blood.

Jews admire the way Japan keeps out Muslims

Dr. Mordecai Kedar writes:

Japan manages to remain a country almost without a Muslim presence because Japan’s negative attitude toward Islam and Muslims pervades every level of the population, from the man in the street to organizations and companies to senior officialdom. In Japan, contrary to the situation in other countries, there are no “human rights” organizations to offer support to Muslims’ claims against the government’s position. In Japan no one illegally smuggles Muslims into the country to earn a few yen, and almost no one gives them the legal support they would need in order to get permits for temporary or permanent residency or citizenship.

Another thing that helps the Japanese keep Muslim immigration to their shores to a minimum is the Japanese attitude toward the employee and employment. Migrant workers are perceived negatively in Japan, because they take the place of Japanese workers. A Japanese employer feels obligated to employ Japanese workers even if it costs much more than it would to employ foreign workers. The traditional connection between an employee and employer in Japan is much stronger than in the West, and the employer and employee feel a mutual commitment to each other: an employer feels obligated to give his employee a livelihood, and the employee feels obligated to give the employer the fruit of his labor. This situation does not encourage the acceptance of foreign workers, whose commitment to the employers is low.

The fact that the public and the officials are united in their attitude against Muslim immigration has created a sort of iron wall around Japan that Muslims lack both the permission and the capability to overcome. This iron wall silences the world’s criticism of Japan in this matter, because the world understands that there is no point in criticizing the Japanese, since criticism will not convince them to open the gates of Japan to Muslim immigration.

Japan is teaching the whole world an interesting lesson: there is a direct correlation between national heritage and permission to immigrate: a people that has a solid and clear national heritage and identity will not allow the unemployed of the world to enter its country; and a people whose cultural heritage and national identity is weak and fragile, has no defense mechanisms to prevent a foreign culture from penetrating into its country and its land.
