Book recommendation: "The Wandering Who" by Gilad Atzmon

A great book by a great thinker and musician. A customer review from Amazon:

"This book frightens me. It frightens me that such radical views on the Jewish people and nation are spoken of in polite company in 2011.
Atzmon has written that Jews are evil and a menace to humanity:

· "With Fagin and Shylock in mind Israeli barbarism and organ trafficking seem to be just other events in an endless hellish continuum."

· "The Homo Zionicus quickly became a mass murderer, detached from any recognised form of ethical thinking and engaged in a colossal crime against humanity."

· If Iran and Israel fight a nuclear war that kills tens of millions of people, "some may be bold enough to argue that `Hitler might have been right after all'" (179).

Atzmon regularly urges his readers to doubt the Holocaust and to reject Jewish history:

· "It took me years to accept that the Holocaust narrative, in its current form, doesn't make any historical sense. ... If, for instance, the Nazis wanted the Jews out of their Reich (Judenrein--free of Jews), or even dead, as the Zionist narrative insists, how come they marched hundreds of thousands of them back into the Reich at the end of the war?"

Finally, Atzmon repeatedly declares that Israel is worse than the Nazis and has actually "apologized" to the Nazis for having earlier compared them to Israel:

· "Many of us including me tend to equate Israel to Nazi Germany. Rather often I myself join others and argue that Israelis are the Nazis of our time. I want to take this opportunity to amend my statement. Israelis are not the Nazis of our time and the Nazis were not the Israelis of their time. Israel, is in fact far worse than Nazi Germany and the above equation is simply meaningless and misleading." (...)

Gilad Atzmon is a former Israeli citizen, born of Jewish parents who rejected both the citizenship and the nationality.
