For Ocalan, the Jewish religion nourished the idea of nation, which in turn nourished the harmful idea of the State, a State that was itself the guarantee of the economic and social power of the Jews. The circle is now complete. Here we are presented with an anti-nationalist and anti-state discourse with pseudo ”libertarian” overtones that serves to construct an anti-Judaic and anti-Jewish discourse. Ocalan reads like a bad science fiction tale about the role of the Jews in the constitution of nationstates and then nationalist movements that continue through the centuries since, according to Ocalan, “Jewish cosmopolitanism” (note how the antisemitic panoply is completed over the course of the articles), will provoke numerous social revolts and inspire “Arab, Turkish, Palestinian, Iranian-Shiite and Kurdish” nationalisms, given the alleged ideological “monopoly” that “the Jews” supposedly exercise over “nationalism”. As you have probably understood now, Ocalan is a cautious antisemite – or at least he tries to be. On the one hand, he praises the “qualities” of the Jews, noting their admirable ability to resist persecution, massacres and Judeocide; their supposedly “inherent” and “tribal” sense of money (if one takes this as a compliment); their outstanding intellectual achievement; their decisive contributions to the European Enlightenment. Ocalan even goes so far as to write that “the Jewish tiny civilization”, born more than three millennia ago, became “the essence of the world civilization”. On the other hand, he stresses the extent to which “the Jews” constitute a “tribe”, an “ethnic group”, or “colonials” (sic) who, although a minority, have always been able to manipulate both the masses and their leaders, whether “in Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Caspian banks (sic), Russia”, “Northern Africa”, “Balkans”, Europe or America. According to Ocalan, as early as the 10th century, “the Jews” “set up cities in which they also established markets” and monopolised “half the roles and administrations in the cities as well as the management of the newly-born developping states”.
