George Soros and the problem of self-hating Hebrews

By Dennis Prager, JewishWorldReview

What do Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Noam Chomsky and George Soros have in common?

They were/are all radicals, born to Jewish parents, had no Jewish identity and hurt Jews (not to mention non-Jews).

The term “non-Jewish Jew” is generally attributed to the Jewish historian Isaac Deutscher, who wrote an essay by that name in 1954. The term describes the individual who, though born a Jew (Judaism consists of a national/peoplehood identity, not only a religious one), identifies solely as a citizen of the world and not as a Jew, either nationally or religiously.CONTINUE

    You know that I must raise an opposition to the method of Prager here. He is superficial in the extreme. I content to Prager that Trotsky had become a Zionist, but a Zionist of a new type, by the 30s, one from the standpoint of revolutionary socialism who firmly believed that the Jewish Homeland could never be achieved AND CONTINUE TO EXIST within the framework of what he referred to as rotting capitalism.

    But he was for the Homeland. That makes him a Zionist.

    Basically Prager does not know what he is talking about.

  2. What do Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Noam Chomsky and George Soros have in common?

    The answer is: Very very little, although Marx, Trotsky and Chomsky do in fact share a certain intellectual capacity, while Soros seems to lack even that.

    The question should have been: Who is the odd man out?
    The answer is Soros, whose contribution to philosophy is probably limited to the invention of Market Leninism.
