Governo d'occupazione sionista

Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera.

Con governo d'occupazione sionista (inglese: Zionist Occupation Government, abbreviato in ZOG) ci si riferisce a una delle più note e controverse teorie del complotto antisemite, che accusa alcuni regimi governativi di essere in realtà Stati fantoccio sotto il controllo segreto di poteri ebraici sionisti.[1]

È parte integrante della più vasta formulazione cospirativa nota come "Nuovo ordine mondiale", avvalendosi di alcuni temi presi in prestito da essa come: presunto uso dell'ONU come forza militare dello Zog, controllo di banchieri ebraici della finanza americana, inserimento di microchip nelle teste per il rintracciamento delle persone.[2]

Storia[modifica | modifica sorgente]

Questa teoria apparve per la prima volta nell'articolo Welcome to ZOG-World del 1976, attribuito al neonazista statunitense Eric Thomson.[3]

Attirò l'attenzione della stampa e del pubblico comunque, solo con la pubblicazione di un articolo il 27 dicembre 1984 del New York Times, riguardante una serie di rapine commesse in California e nello Stato di Washington da un gruppo supremazista bianco chiamato The Order. In accordo con il giornale, i crimini "furono commessi per raccogliere fondi per una guerra contro il governo degli Stati Uniti, che il gruppo chiama 'Zog', o Governo d'occupazione sionista".[4]

Le argomentazioni[modifica | modifica sorgente]

La teoria appare tra le più diffuse fra gruppi di estrema destra e circoli antiebraici, specie fra promotori della supremazia bianca in Europa, Russia e Stati Uniti.[5][6][7]

Il termine sionismo, che indica l'insieme dei movimenti che sostengono l'esistenza dello Stato ebraico in Israele, viene qui usato in un contesto fuorviante, nel quale gli ebrei sono rappresentati come cospiratori che mirano al controllo del mondo, come suggerito dai famosi protocolli dei Savi di Sion.[8][9] Il sito web antisemita Jew Watch ha accusato l'intera sfera politica occidentale e altre nazioni vicine di essere, di essere controllate dallo "Zog".[10]

    • "Conceptualizations of class and state converge in the white supremacist discourse in the characterization of the United States government as the "Zionist Occupation Government" (ZOG)... As indicated by the ubiquitous reference to the state as "ZOG" ("Zionist" is equated with "Jewish") within these publications, the state is depicted as inherently "Jewish", a racial identity within the discourse. The government, as well as the corporate elite, is supposedly "occupied" and controlled by Jews." Daniels, Jesse.

    • "With the racist and anti-Semitic theology of Christian Identity as their justification, they blame the Jewish Antichrist, or the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG), which rules in Washington, taking its orders from internationalist Jews in Israel, the United Nations, and the Fortune 500. Attracting old-line hate groups like the Ku-Klux-Klan and inspiring newer ones like the Aryan Nation Alliance ..., the militia and Patriot movement have helped to legitimize racist and anti-Semitic hate groups..."

    • "... vivid philosophy of White supremacy, including the belief that the United States is manipulated by foreign Jewish interests collectively known as the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG).
