Liberal Jew Henry Herskovitz (b. 1946), who attended Hebrew school, had a bar mitzvah and used to attend High Holiday services at the synagogue Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor, Michigan, criticizes the Holocaust industry ("no more Holocaust movies") and believes that anti-Jewish sentiment always follows bad Jewish behavior.[1] In 2003, he founded a group called "Jewish Witnesses for Peace and Friends" calling for "no more wars for Israel", stating 2020: “We love our country and we love the Palestinians. We hate what Jews are doing in the Jewish state… but we don’t hate Jews.” Herskovitz is a former board member of Deir Yassin Remembered, an organization founded in memory of the 1948 massacre of Palestinians in Deir Yassin, a village near Jerusalem.[2]

Jewish supremacism is the belief that the Jews are religiously, morally, intellectually, and/or genetically superior and therefore should control or rule. The religion of Judaism itself claims that the Jews are a people "chosen" by God ahead of the rest of humanity.

Note that this is a somewhat different topic from that of actual Jewish influence, which is described in the article on this topic.

Jewish supremacism: My Awakening to the Jewish Question

David Duke's Jewish Supremacism

One of the most prominent books on Jewish supremacism is Jewish Supremacism: My Awakening to the Jewish Question by David Duke. The book argues that there is a powerful Jewish supremacist element in Judaism and Zionism that is great threat to both non-Jews and Jews. Duke uses direct quotes from the Talmud, other major Jewish sources such as the Jewish Encyclopedia, major Jewish magazines, and Jewish leaders to argue the existence of a group of hateful, anti-Gentile Jewish supremacists that may also boast of a Jewish control over media and politics.[3] For example, in the book Duke quotes a former head of National Affairs for the largest Jewish organization in the United States.

"‘I’ll confess it at least, like thousands of other typical kids of my generation I was reared as a Jewish nationalist, even a quasi-separatist. Every summer for two months of ten formative years… I attended Jewish summer camp. There, each morning, I saluted a foreign flag, dressed in a uniform reflecting its colours, sang a foreign national anthem, learned a foreign language… and was taught the superiority of my people to the ‘Gentiles’ who oppressed us. ‘We were taught to view non-Jews as… people less sensitive, intelligent and moral than ourselves.’"[3]

Contributing to Jewish supremacism is argued to be that in every conflict with Gentiles, Jews are always portrayed as completely innocent, while Gentiles are portrayed as totally evil. The main Jewish holidays are dominated by the recounting of claimed Gentile persecutions, and the Holocaust has achieved almost a religious significance in Jewish life. Any legitimate criticism of Jewish supremacism is argued to be labelled "antisemitism" by Jewish supremacists, who define the usage of the term.[3]

Duke argues that one Jewish supremacist strategy is fostering Jewish supremacist thinking among Jews, while at the same time working to break down the group loyalty of the Gentiles among whom they live.[3] The book describes a Jewish supremacist double standard. Many Jewish leaders have proclaimed the need for Jews to preserve the Jewish race. Israel will grant instant citizenship to an atheist Jew from New York, but forbids Palestinians who were born in Israel to return, and forbids marriages between Jews and Gentiles. At the same time, Jews have relentlessly worked to break down the immigration laws of other nations.

"While they preach multiculturalism and diversity for almost every other country in which they dwell, they themselves support and expect Americans to support a Zionist State, dedicated exclusively to the Jewish people, religion and culture."[3]

Duke also states that major Jewish sources "boast of their takeover and control of Hollywood, the news media and the most sensitive part of the Government of the United States. For instance, Duke quotes a major Israeli newspaper bragging about the fact that Jews loyal to Israel make up seven out of the eleven members of the secretive and sensitive National Security Council (NSC)."

The media control is argued to be used to support Jewish supremacist goals and to censor and label criticism of Jewish supremacism as "antisemitism".[3] Jewish supremacist thinking is argued to have contributed to a number of crimes against gentiles, including by Israel against the United States in attempts to start wars against the enemies of Israel, as well as more subtle harmful actions. For example, Sigmund Freud is argued to have been a secret Jewish supremacist, who thought of himself as a Hannibal destroying the foundations of the Christian church and the European family.[3]

A review states that "Duke goes at length to point out that not all Jews are supremacists, and that the supremacists not only endanger the Gentile world but threaten innocent Jews by exposing them to an inevitably hostile Gentile reaction."[3]

Ethnocentrism and Jewish group evolutionary strategy

Jewish supremacist thinking may be related to the ethnocentrism described in the Jewish group evolutionary strategy.

Judaism and prominent rabbis

Various aspects of (some forms of) Judaism have been criticized as Jewish supremacist, notably including recent forms and recent very prominent rabbis. See articles on topics such as:

  • Judaism
  • Kahanism
  • Maimonides
  • Menachem Mendel Schneerson - Influential American rabbi, ontroversial for statements such as "Two contrary types of soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness."
  • Moses
  • Ovadia Yosef - Former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel, controversial for statements such as "Goyim were born only to serve us.”
  • Purim
  • Rabbi - Especially the "External links" section on different rabbis and controversial views, sometimes stated to be Jewish supremacist.

Israel and Zionism

One aspect of Jewish supremacism is Zionism, where Jews argue that they have more right to the "Promised Land" than other peoples. This including Jews who have not had ancestors living in Palestine for thousands of years and having this right before Palestinians with ancestors living in Palestine for thousands of years.

Israel was created in part through ethnic cleansing and expulsion of non-Jews. The non-Jews who were expelled/fled are not allowed to return. The remaining non-Jews are in practice considered to be second-class citizens. Any Jew anywhere in the world has the right to migrate to Israel and the right to citizenship.


Israel prohibits Jews from marrying non-Jews. Israel and Jewish organizations spend a great deal of money and effort on trying to prevent Jews outside of Israel from intermarrying with non-Jews.

Neoconservatism, the Israel lobby, and Christian Zionists

The neoconservative movement and the Israel lobby more generally has gained great influence over U.S. foreign policy. This is used for purposes such as supporting the United States entering into wars with the enemies of Israel. The Israeli Lobby is supported by Jewish Zionists and Christian Zionists. Whether Christian Zionists in general consider Jews to be superior to other people is questionable, but they regardless support Zionism and Israel for religious reasons, such as the return of the Jews to the Holy Land being in accordance with Biblical prophecy. Some Christian Zionists may believe in dual-covenant theology, which in effect considers Jews and certain non-Jews to be superior to other people.


Noahidism may be interpreted as a form of Jewish supremacism. In 2016, the Chief Sephardic Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef stated that Jewish law requires that the only non-Jews allowed to live in Israel are Noahides:

"According to Jewish law, it’s forbidden for a non-Jew to live in the Land of Israel – unless he has accepted the seven Noahide laws."[4]


Kabbalistic texts have been argued to be a cause of Jewish supremacist views.[5]

Urban vs. rural

Jewish supremacist thinking has been argued to sometimes be masked as urban dwellers (like most Jews) being superior to rural dwellers (unlike most Jews). Some Jews are argued to associate rural America with "nativism, anti-Semitism, nationalism, and fascism as well as with anti-intellectualism and provincialism; the urban was associated antithetically with ethnic and cultural tolerance, with internationalism, and with advanced ideas."[6]


Jews were very influential in the communist states and some crimes committed by communists may have been influenced by Jewish supremacist thinking and hatred of perceived enemies. Such influence may have been indirect, such as Ilya Ehrenburg creating anti-German propaganda describing Germans as inferior and contributing to large scale crimes against German civilians. See also Jews and Communism

Cultural Marxism

Jewish influence on Cultural Marxism has been argued to be large and in part caused by certain Jews seeing Western and Christian culture as inferior and as causing antisemitism.

Some mainstream media support somewhat more rightist and neoconservative views, while other mainstream media support somewhat more leftist and Cultural Marxist views. Regardless, criticisms of Jewish influence or Jewish supremacist thinking are largely absent.
