Battle of the giants

George Soros against George W. Bush


Since George Soros (cf. The Soros Effect on Central and Eastern Europe) gave away several hundred photocopiers in communist-ruled Hungary in the 1980s to democratize access to ideas and information (cf. The genie that came out of the bottle), the financier has built an empire with his foundations in Eastern and Central Europe, invested around a billion dollars in Russia, and also set up autonomous institutes of his Open Society Institute in Africa and Asia.

Now he sees the time has come to fight for democracy and an open society in his own country. Quasi "overnight", the Washington Post writes, the 74-year-old has become a major financial player financial player of the Democrats. Now the Hungarian-born billionaire has been called by Republicans, not just since yesterday, the "George Regime Change Soros" . What is new, however, is that he sees the 2004 presidential election as a "a matter of life and death" and sees preventing the re-election of George W. Bush as the "greatest goal of my life". In doing so, he unabashedly makes use of the legal loophole that is the so-called soft money system In campaign finance offers. Yesterday, he reportedly donated five million dollars to, a liberal activist group, five million dollars, bringing his "regime change total expenditures" to 15.5 million. "When I hear Bush say, ‘You are either for us or against us,’ it reminds me of the Germans", said Soros, who emigrated from Hungary to England in 1947 and later to the USA. The US neocons (cf. The Princes of IV.World War) are war-mongering extremists, who exploited the attacks of September 11. September to push through a long-standing agenda of world domination. They are guided by a crude form of social Darwinism.

Bush is leading the USA and with it the whole world into a vicious cycle of escalating violence. Actually, it is immodest for a single private person to oppose the president. But this is in line with the Soros doctrine.

In his forthcoming book in January "The Bubble of American Supremacy" the multi-talented financier, philanthropist and philosopher, who ranks 28th on Forbes’ list of the richest Americans, will diversify his critique of the United States. Meanwhile, he has made a few enemies among his friends: a few days ago, Soros, whom Newsweek once called a "one-man Marshall Plan" called, declared before a Judaic auditorium in New York:

There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon government are contributing to this. If we change this direction, anti-Semitism will also disappear. I cannot see how it could be fought directly.

Because of these changes, Soros, who is himself Jewish, now finds himself accused of anti-Semitism. In fact, the increasing tendency to conflate the emergence of anti-Semitism with criticism of Israel is more than questionable.

Let us be clear: Anti-Semitism is not caused by Jews, it is caused by anti-Semites. Of course, one can criticize Bush or Sharon, but any deviation from the understanding of what the real causes of anti-Semitism are is not only harmful, but a historical lie.
