The Unconscionable Silence of the Anti-Defamation League on Antisemitism at #OccupyWallStreet
Israel Today Magazine ^ | 10/16/11 | Ryan Jones

Posted on 10/16/2011 5:00:50 PM PDT by Nachum

A growing number of Israelis and foreign Jewish groups are expressing concern over the anti-Semitic flavor of some of the "Occupy Wall St." economic protests in the US. From the 13th century expulsion of Englands Jews to the 19th century Russian pogroms to the Nazi Holocaust, sour economic conditions have historically formed the backdrop of rising anti-Semitism.(snip) Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper called the anti-Semitic outbursts ''hard to watch,'' and an Israeli commenter said, ''It's just like pre-World War II Nazi Germany. You think blood libels can't happen in America?''

I found this nazi statement that was written sometime in 1920s Munich before the nazis came to power and it seems awfully familiar.

We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living.

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand: … an end to the power of the financial interests.

We demand profit sharing in big business.

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged.

We demand … the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of national, state, and municipal governments.

In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education …

We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents…

The government must undertake the improvement of public health – by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor … by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth.

We combat the … materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of the common good before the individual good.

The Antidefamationleague is morally responsible for the SAD FACT that the Anti Semitism Card really isn’t accepepted in some places anymore.

Yep all they need at OWS is Brown shirts, knee pants and clubs.

Funny how the msm either through ignorance or complicity IGNORES the truth about the Fascist of OWS.

The ADL is too busy defending the left and bashing the Catholic Church to know what real antisemitism looks like.

They’ve swallowed the canard that the Nazis and the Fascists were right-wingers.

I guess real Anti-Semitism makes them shut up—especially when its Liberals spewing the hate. Similar to when human rights activists are too cowardly to protest countries who are real abusers of human rights.

And the left will carry the Jewish vote in 2012.

It's just another day in the Twilight Zone Obamaland.

Those are some excellent arguing points when dealing with leftists. Ask if they agree with those statements and when they have agreed to quite a few of them, explain that they were taken from the 25 theses of the National Socialist Party (as approved by Adolf Hitler) - the platform of the Nazi party.

Photobucket I agree...the anti-semitism prevalent in these protests is disgraceful.

Wonder how many Jews are part of OWS (Soros financed) ... which leads me to wonder how many Jews thought Hitler was a great guy before he fired up the ovens. Unfortunately, Jews can’t wrap their heads around the fact that Conservatives are the pro-Israel, pro-Jew friends they demonize.

I believe in 1933, Hitler did carry a significant portion of the Jewish vote.

I found it in several places but couldn’t find much more about it than it first appearing in Munich in the late 1920s.

Just copy the first sentence into a search engine if you want to do some digging for yourself.

In part 3 of this documentary you’ll find mention of Jews who spoke highly of Hitler early on. Basically they were progressives.

This is also a worthwhile read to help understand the Left on these issues:

The article mentioned that Israelis are disturbed by the failure of the mainstream media and politicians to repudiate the anti-Semitic actions of the OWS aka We Hate Jews crowd. What they should have stated was the failure of liberals to repudiate the idiots stinking up Wall Street. Unless of course, they agree with the slime. Which a lot of them do. I’ll bet more than a few members of the Black Congressional Caucus fully agree with the OWSers about filthy Jews.

Various forms of "The common good before the individual good" comes up in various forms again and again in nazi writings and speeches.

One example is "Public need before private greed" which was used by a nazi judge named Walter Buch.

Hitler used the term "Society's needs come before the individual's needs."

I think the various forms of that statement offer an insight into the nazi and now American socialist mindset. It becomes easy to kill for the greater good.

In fact another extension of the socialist mindset can be found in the words of George Bernard Shaw who was a proud Fabian Socialist.

You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you can’t justify your existence, if you’re not pulling your weight in the social boat, if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.

Of course. Al Sharpton tried to turn yesterday's MLK memorial dedication into a "no justice, no peace" thing, and gots da pipple all ralled up and chanting about wanting jobs now! There is never a mention of his highly anti-Semitic Crown Heights comments nor his overtly racist Tawana Brawley rape scam. The Mouthpiece Media wiped away his dirty past back when the little shyster thought he could become POTUS.

LOL! The ADL long ago became just another Marxists’ bitch. My mom called them the Anti-Democracy League (she also called the League of Women Voters the Plague of Women Voters).

It isn’t much of step from there to the gas chambers, is it?

Every true citizen should own a sport utility rifle and at least 1000 rounds of ammo, and know how to use it, in case it ever comes down to a domestic nut-cutting with people like that. God forbid.
