‘In The Plot Against America, Roth precisely described the sinister and chilling nightmare in which the United States now finds itself... America has not read enough of Philip Roth’ Bernard-Henri Lévy When the renowned aviation hero and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh defeats Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invades every Jewish household in America. Not only has Lindbergh publicly blamed the Jews for pushing America towards a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but, upon taking office as the 33rd president of the United States, he negotiates a cordial 'understanding' with Adolf Hitler, guaranteeing peaceful relations between the two nations. What then follows is the alternative America of this startling counterfactual novel by Philip Roth, who recounts what it was like for his Newark family during the menacingly anti-Semitic years of the Lindbergh presidency. Jewish families are shaken violently apart, whilst America is oblivious to its own dark metamorphosis. ‘Many passages in The Plot Against America echo feelings voiced today by vulnerable Americans – immigrants and minorities as alarmed by Trump’s election as the Jews of Newark are frightened by Lindbergh’s’ New Yorker **ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE 21st CENTURY**

This study of five towering Philip Roth novels - Operation Shylock, the American Pastoral trilogy, and The Plot Against America - explores his vision of a turbulent post-war America personified in trial-racked Jewish American men. These works collectively register the impact of post-1945 upheavals upon the nation and American trial-based myths about wholesomeness and regeneration. Roth shows how the "stories of old" which moulded American self-making have produced disorderly and disruptive counter-stories, playing themselves out in Jewish men marked by spots and stains where their constitutional integrity has been infringed. Roth probes the nation's own constitutional testing points as he shatters the identities of characters such as fallen ace athlete Swede Levov and disgraced academic Coleman Silk. His books seek to strip away America's false innocence, demanding that historical accountability should replace myths of new beginnings. Creating arenas of trial for his American men where national discourses and narratives cross and clash, Roth's novels reveal that a culture equals its debates and allow us to see Americans and America as ongoing experiments, always being tested.

THE EVILS OF 9-11 REVISITED 10 years ago, on the brilliantly sunny morning of Sept. 11, 2001 mass murderers the sickest and most evil psychopaths among the human race unleashed a reign of terror that would ultimately kill nearly 3,000 innocent citizens. As Americans watched these horrors unfold on their television sets, they were subjected to an occult, magical rite that would severely traumatize them and forever transform our nation. As sirens wailed, fires burned, people screamed and television newsmen riddled their viewers with alarm, those who orchestrated this sacrificial slaughter reveled in the paranoia and carnage. As blame for these attacks was quickly placed on Osama bin Laden and 19 Muslim hijackers, the actual plotters Talmudic exterminators and their neo-con political sycophants peered from the shadows as horrified jumpers leaped to their deaths from the World Trade Center towers and splattered on New York City s streets. Shortly thereafter, these two 110-story skyscrapers were swallowed directly into the Earth by energy sources as powerful as the Sun. Ground Zero, in its original interpretation as the spot of a nuclear explosion, had been born. The monstrous aberrations responsible for these crimes against humanity mutilated and desecrated our security. Certainly 9-11 was an inside job, but it was also an outside job as well. The ravenous dogs that assaulted USS Liberty crewmembers in 1967 now unleashed without a trace of conscience their cesspool of bloodlust on America s own homeland. On that fateful morning, pandemonium ran rampant through every neighborhood. People wondered rightly so if WW III had begun? After the Pentagon our military nerve center was purportedly rendered ineffective against this onslaught, what target would be next? Television sets cast incantations and demented spells over every viewer that sat transfixed, frozen with fright. In a state of primal fear, these cabbalistic sorcerers and propagandists actually took possession of the victimized masses. At this precise moment, brainwashing, trauma programming and psychic driving would reach its height of effectiveness. More sirens, flames, controlled demolitions, hellish smoke, terror alerts on every channel and mounting death counts. The world had changed, and we could never return to where we once were. Like vermin-infected rodents carrying toxic poison in their DNA, the 9-11 architects created this Pearl Harbor grand illusion to lay a foundation for even more lies, i.e. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq where killing-field corpses would be stacked by the thousands. 9-11 Evil . . . 10 years ago the spiritually malignant blackness of this Made in Israel false-flag attack stole our family s lives and savaged our country s collective mindset. They are destroyers, vipers of an inhuman species, and we will never forget what they ve done to us.

Jewish Anxiety And The Novels Of Philip Roth

Jewish Anxiety and the Novels of Philip Roth argues that Roth's novels teach us that Jewish anxiety stems not only from fear of victimization but also from fear of perpetration. It is impossible to think about Jewish victimization without thinking about the Holocaust; and it is impossible to think about the taboo question of Jewish perpetration without thinking about Israel. Roth's texts explore the Israel-Palestine question and the Holocaust with varying degrees of intensity but all his novels scrutinize perpetration and victimization through examining racism and sexism in America. Brett Ashley Kaplan uses Roth's novels as springboards to illuminate larger problems of victimization and perpetration; masculinity, femininity, and gender; racism and anti-Semitism. For if, as Kaplan argues, Jewish anxiety is not only about the fear of oppression, and we can begin to see how these anxieties function in terms of fears of perpetration, then perhaps we can begin to unpack the complicated dynamics around the line between the Holocaust and Israel-Palestine.
