Ken Livingstone and Jew hatred

Livingstone this week pointed out that he considered Hitler part of the Zionist pantheon.

An amalgam shared by many on the petty bourgeois left, though they usually don't dumb it down as harshly as Red Ken.

Most simply promote the canard that Zionists conspired with Hitler's government before World War 2.

Zizek on Israel’s anti-Semitism, however, is no longer theold ethnic anti-Semitism; its focus is displaced from the Jews as an ethnic group to the State of Israel: “in the program of the Europe of the twenty-first century, the State of Israel occupies exactly the position that the name ‘Jew’ occupied in the Europe beforethe cut of 1939-45.”5 In this way, today’s anti-Semitism can present itself as anti-anti- Semitism, full of solidarity with the victims of the Holocaust; the reproach is just that,in our era of the gradual dissolution of all limits, of the fluidization of all traditions, the Jews wanted to built their own clearly delimited Nation-State.
