  • The Actions of Israel do not Give you the Excuse to Be Anti-Semetic

    07/21/2014 3:39:02 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 19 replies
    The recent killings in Gaza have again helped to bring to the surface a level of prejudice towards Jews. What is quite apparent is that there is a section of Jewish people who are equally disgusted with the actions of Israel. Regardless, of this, sadly some Muslims do tend to become more anti-Jewish during these testing times. Some people may not like this to be stated so bluntly but let us face the facts. Ramadan or no Ramadan the evening discussions centre upon conspiracy theories about how Jewish people are controlling the British media and are intent on burying the...

    Police have apprehended a man they believe committed a string of hate crimes in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. According to the New York Times, Rubin Ublies was taken into custody Wednesday in connection with the burning of 11 mezuzahs inside an Ultra-Orthodox Jewish apartment complex in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn on Monday, which was Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. An additional mezuzah was discovered burned inside the apartment building next door a day later. Authorities say they used facial recognition to identify Ublies. Police say Ublies has an extensive criminal history that includes nearly 50 arrests on robbery, drug,...

    KIRYAS JOEL – A State Police bomb squad early Tuesday evening removed a suspicious package from in front of 303 Forest Road in Kiryas Joel. The package, which was wrapped in duct tape and had wires protruding, was smoking when it was first discovered before 5 p.m. Emergency responders from the village’s Public Safety and Fire departments were first on the scene. Public Service Director Moses Witriol told MidHudsonNews.com that it appeared to be firecrackers taped together. Witriol said the scene was secured and everything was under control as first responders awaited arrival of the bomb squad.

    Gabriel Wilensky’s first book, “Six Million Crucifixions: How Christian Teachings About the Jews Paved the Road to the Holocaust” traces the history of the Christian church (and specifically the Vatican) to plausible causes of the Holocaust. The author’s lifelong fascination with the subject and years of research culminated in his very detailed book on the subject. With a foreword by world-renowned Holocaust scholar John K. Roth and endorsements by several Holocaust survivors, the book traces 2,000 years of history in an easy to read format.

    TEHRAN: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinjad said Thursday “Zionist” methods were used in the bombing of a top atomic scientist, as angry mourners chanting anti-US and anti-Israeli slogans buried the slain professor. “One can see the level of the enemy’s grudge in the way he was assassinated. The method of bombing was a Zionist one,” the Mehr news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying. It did not elaborate. Massoud Ali Mohammadi, a particle physics professor at prestigious Tehran University, died when a bomb strapped to a motorbike was triggered by remote control as he was leaving his home on Tuesday morning. “He...

    It begins, reasonably, as a response to apparently unnecessary violence by Israel. Then it moves on to accuse Israel of expanding on land the Arabs insist is theirs. Nothing wrong with criticizing that, surely. Israel, a state, deserves to be judged like any other. Even those friendly toward Israel have often felt duty bound to point out its mistakes. In more innocent times, I imagined that intellectuals in the West paid careful attention to Israel's faults because they expected it to set a high standard. Who would worry about the moral status of, say, Bolivia? No one except Bolivians. Jews,...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A perception among Arab nations that Israel has undermined the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is a major obstacle to global nuclear disarmament, head of the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog said on Monday. Tensions within the IAEA run deep over Israel's presumed nuclear might and its shunning of the NPT. Israel is widely believed to have the Middle East's only nuclear arsenal but it has never confirmed or denied it. In an article for the International Herald Tribune, Mohamed ElBaradei, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, set out what he thought should be done to achieve consensus on nuclear...

    ROCKY HILL, Conn., July 28 — Senator Joseph I. Lieberman commissioned a poll in January as he prepared for his fourth campaign for the Senate, and the results were sobering. Mr. Lieberman was tied against a hypothetical primary opponent, described only as a Democrat who was opposed to the Iraq war and was critical of Mr. Lieberman’s ties with President Bush, an aide recounted. That poll was one of a number of early warnings that emerged well before Mr. Lieberman found himself locked this summer in a career-threatening battle with Ned Lamont, a Democratic primary challenger who is opposed to...

But when she was asked about how she would vote in the Democratic primary next month, Ms. Korzennik, 46, who says she strongly supports Israel, sighed. “Given all that’s going on in Israel right now,” she said, “I am not going to let Lieberman go.” Ms. Korzennik expresses the mixed sentiments a significant number of Jewish Democrats...

"It makes it more challenging," said John Olsen, president of the Connecticut AFL-CIO and former chairman of the state Democratic Party, when asked what a Lieberman primary loss would mean to Democrats running for everything from Congress to state representative. The hot Senate race has already drawn complaints from the two Democratic gubernatorial candidates running in the Aug. 8 primary....

    Six years ago Joseph I. Lieberman came within a hairbreadth of the vice presidency after the Democratic Party chose him as a moderate face whose support for family values and a stronger military might attract Reagan Democrats and independents. Yet when Mr. Lieberman sought the party's presidential nomination in 2004, rank-and-file Democrats relegated him to the B list, behind Howard Dean and John Kerry, in large part because of his strong support for military action in Iraq. Now Mr. Lieberman faces the prospect of rejection by the Democrats who know him best, the party faithful in Connecticut. Once more the...

Joe Lieberman , warily watching his primary challenger advance in the polls, must soon decide whether to start collecting signatures for a possible independent bid this November. "I am not going to close out any options," the senator recently told reporters. But any effort to gather signatures before the primary would be a sign of weakness, indicating that Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000, fears that he could lose to businessman Ned Lamont. The effort also would rile Democrats who already question Lieberman‘s party loyalty and his perceived closeness to President Bush ....

John F. Droney Jr., a former Democratic state chairman who helped Lieberman unseat Republican Sen. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. in 1988, said Lieberman should make his case for re-election to all voters in November. "I think to be terrorized through the summer by an extremely small group of the Democratic Party, much less the voting population, is total insanity for a person who is a three-term senator," Droney said....

Among all Democrats Lieberman's lead over Lamont declined from 46 points last month (65-19) to 25 points this month (57-32) . Also of concern for Lieberman: his approval rating among Connecticut Democrats is down to 49 percent, which is an 11-point drop from the May 2 QPoll (it's at 56% overall). His favorability rating among Democrats also took an 8-point hit, dropping to 40%. Froma Harrop profiles the Lamont campaign in her column this...

    Britain suffered the sharpest rise in anti-semitic attacks of any country last year, and British press coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a leading cause, according to an Israeli government report. Natan Sharansky, the cabinet minister responsible for the diaspora, said the report found that violent attacks on Jews in Britain rose by almost half. The government's global forum against anti-semitism, which wrote the report, said France again topped the list of anti-semitic violence with 96 attacks, but the number in Britain rose sharply to 77. The total number of incidents in Britain rose to 304 from 163 a year...

    Where does free speech end and incitement begin? And what is the responsibility of a college administration for what happens on its campus? At the University of California campus at Irvine (in Orange County), Jewish students pose these two questions. That's because of events sponsored by the Muslim Student Union (MSU) and the Society of Arab Students (SAS) related to their fourth annual “Zionism Awareness Week.” Zionism is the historic return of Jews to their historic homeland. Originally embraced by Theodore Herzl and other Jewish leaders, Zionism has come to be embraced by many Christians, especially American Protestant Christians, as...

    Oct. 16, 2003 Vandals destroy Sukkah at Canadian university By MICHAEL FREUND Jewish students at Toronto's York University were stunned earlier this week to discover that vandals had attacked and torn down the campus Sukkah, which had been erected for Sukkot. "The Sukkah is a purely religious symbol", said Zac Kaye, Executive Director of Hillel of Greater Toronto, the campus Jewish organization. "This senseless act of desecration must act as a wake-up call for all members of the university community. Enough is enough." It is believed that the vandals responsible for the destruction of the Sukkah struck twice over the...

    Oct. 14, 2003 Istanbul police investigate suspicions of anti-Semitic murders By JPOST.COM STAFF Istanbul police are investigating suspicions of anti-Semitic murders, following the brutal murder of two Turkish Jews, bound and killed in an identical manner, within the past three weeks. Muiz Konor, 32, an owner of a catering company, was murdered last Thursday. His bound and shot body was discovered in a forest on the outskirts of Istanbul. There were no signs of attempted robbery at the scene. Three weeks earlier, the body of dentist Yosef Yehiyeh, 35-years-old and a father of two, was discovered in his clinic, bound...

    Three ways to hate By Eliahu Salpeter Several weeks ago, the American Jewish Committee published a study entitled "Anti-Americanism and Anti-Semitism: A New Front of Zealotry," written by Prof. Alvin Rosenfeld. As the title indicates, says Prof. Rosenfeld, "there is a certain structural similarity between anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism - they are closely connected, so much so that sometimes it seems that the growing hatred of America is none other than a new form of Judeophobia and vice-versa as well." While the examples in the chapter on Germany are not the most convincing (in contrast to Rosenfeld's view, in Germany,...

    Sep. 11, 2003 Saudi religious police campaign against 'Jewish' Barbie By THE JERUSALEM POST INTERNET STAFF Barbie (Mattel Inc.) Saudi Arabia's religious police have declared Barbie dolls a threat to morality, complaining that the revealing clothes of the "Jewish" toy - already banned in the kingdom - are offensive to Islam. The Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, as the religious police are officially known, lists the dolls on a section of its Web site devoted to items deemed offensive to the conservative Saudi interpretation of Islam. "Jewish Barbie dolls, with their revealing clothes and shameful...

    Sep. 5, 2003 Editorial: The eagle and the phoenix Yesterday's flight of three Israel Air Force F-15 fighter planes above the Auschwitz death camp has been derided by some, both within and beyond Poland, as inappropriate. The site, went their argument, should not be desecrated by such a display of military prowess, and the commemoration of its victims should not exclude, even passively, the large number of non-Jews who were also murdered there alongside more than a million Jews. We disagree. For one thing, it is naive to suggest that the abuse of power that made Auschwitz happen means that...

    The war of words By Caroline Glick The Jerusalem Post September 5, 2003 In a recent interview with the London-based Arabic newspaper Al-Sharq al-Awsat, translated by MEMRI, Syria's Defense Minister Mustafa Tlass made a number of revealing statements. On the military front, he explained that Israel and the US are terrorist states. At the same time, terrorism-supporting countries like Syria and Saudi Arabia are victims, and terrorist organizations like Hizbullah in Syrian-controlled Lebanon and Palestinian terrorist groups operating in Israel and headquartered in Damascus are legitimate resistance movements. On the theological front, Tlass explained that the Jews have no right...

    Mel Gibson's 'The Passion': Most offensive film ever made Posted: August 27, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com Have you heard of the controversy and heated debate swirling around Mel Gibson's yet to be released film, "The Passion"? Just to be clear, I will summarize: Detractors, supposedly leaders of Jewish groups, as well as Catholics and Protestants, are concerned that this documentation of the final hours of Jesus Christ's life and His resurrection "will fuel hatred, bigotry and anti-Semitism." Since this portrayal is arguably one of the most accurate of all movies ever made about any aspect of Christ's...

    French and Jewish extremists unite on Net against Arabs By John Lichfield in Paris 17 July 2003 Extreme-right and neo-Nazi groups in France have formed an anti-Arab and anti-Muslim alliance on the internet with extremist Jewish groups, a report published yesterday said. Since the French far right is known for its visceral anti-Semitism, the alliance has puzzled and disturbed anti-racism campaigners and mainstream Jewish organisations. A series of linked websites, calling for violent "resistance" against the "Islamic Republic of France" and its leader, "President Ben Shirak" (Jacques Chirac), operated through a single host in the United States from 1999 until...

  • Dear French Nation

    Dear French Nation! Shalom! As a Jew, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would like to thank your President Jacques Chirac for saying that Israel needs to be convinced that peace is better than war. Never mind that peace (shalom in Hebrew) is the most common word in Jewish prayers. That it is endlessly repeated in synagogues, when greeting or taking leave, when getting up or going to bed. Never mind that shalom (peace) is mentioned 77 times in the Torah, and 275 times in the Jewish Bible (The Old Testament of Christians)....
