“The Jewish Question” is a common topic discussed among members of the Alt-Right, with solutions ranging from complete acceptance and integration to ovens. I don’t yet have a solid opinion on the end game in terms of the millennia long conflict that has existed between European gentiles and Jews. But here are some of my thoughts on the Jewish question.
Part One: Why integration and assimilation are not viable solutions to the Jewish Question
Judaism is a hyper legalistic religion. There are tens of thousands of tiny laws for every Jew to obey, a myriad of prayers and blessings for different occasions, and a whole set of guidelines that it is probably impossible for any human being to fulfill entirely.
If you think Catholicism is a “divine bureaucracy,” as I’ve heard many Orthodox Christians and Protestants say, I would take a look at rabbinical Judaism.
Close contact with the wider gentile society will lead to apostasy amongst Jews. This is what happened in Europe during the 1800s en masse and what happened time and again beforehand as well.
Secular Jews are in revolt against a hyper legalistic religion and community. They are incredibly rebellious and, most of all, well versed in deconstructing society. Having deconstructed the rigid and stringent society of traditional Judaism, at least within their own minds if not in the public square, there is no reason to believe they will not do the same to Christian, Gentile societies (see Communism).
My point is this: Integration and secularization of the Jewish population is not the answer. Those Jews who do integrate and secularize are natural rebels, and will prove destructive to societal cohesion.
Part Two: When debating the Jewish Question, make sure you aren’t repeating falsehoods
Something to keep in mind when arguing the JQ – make certain not to use faulty information.
For example, I often see white nationalists arguing that left-wing Jews don’t push for immigration and multiculturalism in Israel. This is dead wrong. They consistently batter Israelis with condemnations of “racism” when they refuse to admit unlimited numbers of Ethiopian migrants into their country. They hold gay pride parades in major Israeli cities. They push very, very hard for degeneracy in their own country as well as ours.
If you use this argument, a well informed Jew or gentile against whom you are arguing will be able to trip you up and make you look stupid.
In fact, you can even use this to your advantage in a debate, if you are advancing the argument that Jews are an inherently stateless people (fig. 1).

Part Three: Society treats the Jew/Gentile ethnic conflict in a completely unique way compared to other ethnic conflicts.
Ethnic conflicts, we are taught, are not one sided affairs. The mainstream media, academia, and the society at large tell us that ethnic conflicts are rooted in age old disputes wherein one tribe does something bad to one tribe and then retaliation occurs, etc. This is the context in which these conflicts are examined, examples including the Serbs vs. Bosnians, Turks vs. Armenians, Hutu vs. Tutsi, etc.
These conflicts are portrayed as two sided affairs.
There is one exception to this depiction – there is one millennia old ethnic conflict that is portrayed as completely one sided, despite the fact that there is no evidence to back this up. The ethnic conflict between Jews and European Gentiles is shown as blatant persecution without any actual cause. The Jews were minding their own business, and then anti-Semitism came out of nowhere. And nearly everyone believes this.
Ask yourself why that is.
The quote so often falsely attributed to Voltaire is apt here: “to learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”
