Modern Anti-Zionism/Semitism Came From the USSR

This is one of those things that I knew in my heart for years, but I had no real evidence to support my claims.

Article in Fox News by the author of the book linked above: 

".......As one who spent decades at the top of the Soviet bloc intelligence world – until, by God’s grace, I defected in 1978 – I can tell you that the absolutely worst, and often irreparable, damage done to the Free World has been caused by disinformation.

In the late 1960s, KGB head Yuri Andropov, with whom I worked at one time, tasked the Soviet bloc's disinformation machinery with turning the rest of the world against the U.S. by reviving anti-Semitism. Andropov knew that the U.S. would stand with Israel and that he could convince the European leftists and the Islamic world that America was dominated by Jews.......

Andropov's disinformation came to light in 1969, when Palestinian terrorists – secretly trained at the KGB’s Balashikha special-operations school east of Moscow – hijacked an El Al plane and landed it in Algeria. There its 32 Jewish passengers were held hostage for five weeks, during which time Andropov's disinformation machinery portrayed Israel and the U.S. as the main dangers to world peace........
By 1972, Andropov's disinformation machinery was working around the clock to persuade the Islamic world that the U.S. intended to transform the rest of the world into a Zionist fiefdom. He wanted us to convince Muslims that the U.S. Congress was a "Council of the Elders of Zion" which conspired to have the Jews take over the world.
If we whipped up Muslim anti-Semitism, then terrorism and violence against Israel and America would naturally follow.

Thus, the Romanian DIE (counterpart of KGB foreign intelligence), which I headed, in 1972 received from the KGB an Arabic translation of the old Russian forgery, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” We also received "documentary" material in Arabic produced by the Soviet disinformation "proving" America was a Zionist country whose aim was to transform the Islamic world into a Jewish fief.

My DIE was ordered to disseminate these documents within its targeted Islamic countries. During my later years in Romania, the DIE disseminated thousands of copies of “The Protocols” and similar “documents” each month........."

If you are blaming the State of Israel for the violence being perpetrated by Muslims, you are are acting just as the Left wishes.

Antisemitism is very much alive in the West. It most common manifestation is that of anti-Zionism. When we hear Leftists and Leftist-inspired  people in the West use the word Jew as a pejorative, the motivations for such cruel taunts will almost always be the existence of the Jewish State.

Many European "intellectuals", both the indigenous types and Jews, embraced Socialism as the way of the future. Those who did so did not reflect the attitudes of their coreligionists or fellow citizens in any way, but the label stuck with the Jews. Just as some in our society equate the global banking interests solely with the Jewish Rothschilds, too many in the West do the same with Marxism. I have read numerous articles and posts from individuals who are rightly concerned with the advance of the Western variant of Socialism that place the blame for this tragic phenomena squarely at the feet of the Jewish people and particularly with Israel.

The problem with this supposition is simple - The Left has long had an utter revulsion at the very thought of a Jewish State and seeks to destroy it, both from without and within; therefore, if one seeks to stop the Left, he had better stop blaming Israel or the Jews.

The survival of the State of Israel has been a thorn in the side of the Left from the beginning. Many early Zionists were Socialist, but they did not create a Socialist state. Once the Left realized what had actually occurred - the creation of a modern state that with the purpose of having an ethnically, religiously, and culturally identifiable people, they dropped any support for the new nation like a hot potato. Israel quickly found herself on her own - Czechoslovakia was one of the few nations that provided any real support to the fledgling nation as it fought to avoid being killed in utero .

A step back is necessary to change one's opinion. Marxism, like Islam, is pan-national in nature. It allows for no peoples, groups, or nations to remain separate from the International Communist or Socialist world order. Any Socialist party that employs the name of the nation in which it operates is only doing so to mask its intentions - Socialists (Excepting a precious few like George Orwell) want sovereign nations gone in toto. As is patently apparent in their relentless campaigns to force multiple generations into lives of functional illiteracy, denigrate all admirable aspects of a Western and Jewish history and culture (And grossly magnify the faults), deny any evidence of ethnic ancestry of peoples (In Europe, you have to look really hard to find an honest assessment of genetic data for that region), liquidate the family as a concept, and push any belief in Judaism or Christianity into the shadows, the Left wants any sense of identity excised completely.

Now that we have taken that back-step, let's look at the question:

If the Left wants to erase all national borders, destroy the family, and eliminate all senses of historical,  religious, cultural and ethnic identity, why would Israel want any part of that? Virtually everything for which the Left stands exists in compete contrast with the very reason for the State of Israel. If the Left wins out - there will be no Israel.

All of the followings posts describe the campaign of the Left against Israel

In short, if you are against Leftist ideology, then you would do quite well for yourself, your faith, your country, and your civilization if you stopped conflating that system with Israel or the Jews.
