  • Finding New Ways To Express Jew-Hatred (Why Anti-Zionism Is A Euphemism For Anti-Semitism Alert)

    I am often reminded of Martin Luther King’s statement about anti-Zionism: “You declare that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely anti-Zionist. And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops…When people criticize Zionism they mean Jew; we are talking anti-Semitism….Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land… Anti-Zionist is inherently anti-Semitic and ever will it be so. And what is anti-Zionist? It is the denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the people of...

    Jeffrey Goldberg over at the Atlantic is positively apoplectic that I dared to question his Zionism in my column last week, “Anti-Zionism at 60.” That column critically analyzed present day anti-Zionist discourse as it manifested itself – among other places -- in Goldberg’s Atlantic cover article this month entitled “Will Israel Survive?” Goldberg made his fury known in his blog on the Atlantic’s website. I focused on Goldberg’s article in my column because in my view it is a typical example of the anti-Zionist boilerplate often espoused by Jews with an unhealthy relationship to their Jewishness. Brushing aside the majority...

    Britain has become the epicenter for anti-Semitic trends in Europe as traditional, age-old anti-Semitism in a country whose literature and cultural tradition were "drenched" in anti-Semitism has developed into a contemporary mix of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, an Israeli historian said Monday. The problem of anti-Semitism in Britain is exacerbated by a growing and increasingly radical Muslim population, the weak approach taken by a timid British Jewish leadership, and the detachment of the British from their Christian roots, said Hebrew University historian Prof. Robert S. Wistrich in a lecture on British anti-Semitism at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

    I wrote recently about the hostility that the Nazis had for Christians and wrote again about Christian opposition to Nazism. My point was to demonstrate that people of the Judeo-Christian faith are fundamentally different from people outside the Judeo-Christian faith. It was important to demonstrate that the supposed Christian influence on the rise of Nazism was not just a myth, but a conscious rewriting of history by those who hate Christians. The same is true about the rise of Bolshevism. It has become an article of faith for some people who hate the Judeo-Christian faith to accuse Jews of causing...

    After the Republican debate on Tuesday evening in Dearborn, Mich., a reporter from the Arab-American News asked Ron Paul what he thought of the term “Islamic fascism.” “It’s a false term to make people think we’re fighting Hitler,” Paul responded. “It’s war propaganda designed to generate fear so that the war has to be spread.” The call has gone out to all the Muslim Americans to hurry up and register to vote Republican so that they can vote in the Republican Primary to support Ron Paul, the anti-interventionist, non-isolationist candidate for President of the United States.

    The crisis in the Middle East poses a new challenge to multiculturalism. That new challenge is double loyalty, a loyalty to Canada and loyalty to the mother countries of Canadian immigrants, old and new. Already the Lebanese community in Canada is protesting Prime Minister Stephen Harper's defence of Israel's "measured response." Harper's war in Afghanistan is intensely disliked by Canada's Muslim community. But the group most open to the charge of double loyalty is the Canadian Jewish community, which does put Israel second only to Canada in its loyalty and affection. Love of Israel is natural for the Canadian Jewish...

Although I am usually in favor of harsh sentences even for those people who insist on honking their car horns while driving through tunnels, I was against throwing Irving's butt in the slammer. For some time now, the shmoe has made his living by writing and speaking on the subject. One of his goonier notions is that the concentration camps were erected after the end of World War II to serve as tourist attractions. Irving isn't the only...

    A new report on racism in France has sparked controversy by recommending anti-Israel acts and comments be punished by courts as severely as instances of anti-Semitism. The 50-page report, released on Tuesday, four months after being ordered by Interior Minister Dominique de Villepin, warns that racism of all sorts in France "radically threatens the survival of the democratic system". Its author, award-winning writer, doctor and president of a humanitarian aid association, Jean-Christophe Rufin, suggested a raft of measures to combat racism and singles out anti-Semitism as a problem to be combated separately. But one recommendation, that "unfounded" anti-Israel stances be...

Prime Minister Olmert correctly states: ...the Palestinian Authority is, in effect, becoming a terrorist authority. Israel will not agree to that. Israel will not compromise with terror and will continue to fight it with all its might. However, we have no intention of harming the humanitarian needs of the Palestinian population.

    IsraPundit ^ | Jan 21/06 | Lee Kaplan
    The anti-Semitic world has developed a euphemism for the destruction of Jews in the modern era of tolerance. The term “politically correct” has emerged in the Western world where religious and racial tolerance as an idea has become common, mostly as an outcropping of the Holocaust, South Africa and the US Civil Rights Movement. But old ways die hard, and the remnants of the political movements of the totalitarian world still cling to Jew-hatred. The only dilemma for those movements is how to sell a “politically correct” version of that hatred. Hence, “anti-Semitism” is separated from “anti-Zionsim,” even though they...

    Canada has decided to adopt a more pro-Israel stance in the United Nations regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict and to move closer to the positions of Israel and the United States. The decision followed a tough campaign by prominent members of the Canadian Jewish community, who directly lobbied Prime Minister Paul Martin to change Canada's voting pattern. Martin's Liberal government, which is approaching general elections, has indicated that it would change its vote on three out of some 20 resolutions about the Middle East. This is in addition to changing its vote on four resolutions last year. Until now Canada has...

A graduate student at Duke University, she turned her doctoral thesis into a book: “Facts on the Ground: Archeological Practice and Territorial Self-Fashioning in Israeli Society.” One admiring reviewer (from the University of Chicago) said the book offers “an anthropology of colonialism and nationalism, which follows Foucault and Said” in which “she points to the convergence of archeology’s project with that of colonialism.” Others have not been so kind.

    AMERICAN JEWRY is experiencing a cognitive dissonance the likes of which it has never known. To illustrate, consider my recent lecture in Virginia Beach, Va.: "Anti-Semitism at the Universities: What Can We Do About It?" It is very significant that a mainstream (i.e., largely secular and liberal) Jewish organization (the Jewish Community Center) would fly a speaker from across the country to speak on anti-Semitism at universities. To understand how significant, one must appreciate how much Jews revere the university. First, education has a religion-like status in both religious and secular Jewish life. And the university is romantically thought of...

    My National Review colleague Byron York reported on last Saturday’s anti-war rally on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C. The main message of the rally was President Bush’s evil and stupidity—fair enough, in a two-party system—and the main instance of it was Iraq. The warriors of the anti-war movement—Joan Baez, Ramsey Clark, Cindy Sheehan—were front and center. A secondary text of the rally was Katrina; weather, the perennial joke of the newsroom, has become a main event. But another theme was anti-Zionism. As Mr. York reports, kaffiyehs outnumbered American flags. George Galloway, the left-wing M.P., wore one around his neck.

He writes about an Israeli archaeologist who has uncovered the ruins of an important two-thousand-year-old building which, she asserts, was part of King David’s palace. Maybe she is right; maybe not. Archaeologists are not certain; more evidence and study is no doubt necessary. That is how science works. We are then informed, accurately, that archaeologists are debating whether David’s kingdom was a...

Seeing this, the disciples James and John said: ‘Lord do you want us to call down fire from heaven to burn them up?’ But he turned and rebuked them, and they went on to another village” (Lk 9:51-55).The two disciples indeed show in this incident a concrete...

    The World Council of Churches, the main global body uniting non-Catholic Christians, encouraged members earlier this week to sell off investments in companies profiting from Israeli control of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The Council's Central Committee, meeting in Geneva, praised the United States Presbyterian Church for examining the possibility of divestment in Israel similar to the financial boycott it used against the apartheid regime in South Africa two decades ago. The Presbyterian threat, which echoes divestment debates at some U.S. universities, has set off a wave of dissent in the church and angered American Jewish leaders. But the...

"Multinational corporations have been involved in the demolition of Palestinian homes," the WCC's main governing body said in a statement adopted during a February 15-22 meeting in Geneva. They "are involved in the construction of settlements and settlement infrastructure on occupied territory, in building a dividing wall which is also largely inside occupied territory, and...

    There is a small group of Jews – perhaps a few hundred people altogether – who make up what is surely the most universally reviled group within world Jewry. Mention their name, and Jews of every stripe will grimace. They are, of course, the Natorei Karta anti-Zionists, the self-declared "Guardians of the City," who can often be seen in their ultra-Orthodox garb demonstrating alongside Palestinians at international events, and who drew attention to themselves most recently by visiting the dying Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat in his Paris hospital. The Natorei Karta's antipathy to the State of Israel has its origins...

    How to Stop 'Protected' Hate Speech by Beth Goodtree Feb 10, '05 / 1 Adar 5765 Much of today's anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment is promulgated by hate speech. Falsely wrapping themselves in the 'free speech' provisions of various countries, these haters have been given free rein to spread their repugnant political agendas aimed at genocide and ethnic cleansing. However, we can stop this and we have the legal juice to do it. Even as individuals. Here's how: Remember those pesky Geneva Conventions? We, the United States, signed them, as did Israel, Great Britain, Canada, and many other countries. Well,...

After watching Columbia Unbecoming, Lilian Siskin, who graduated from sister school Barnard College in 1943, said she "would never give another cent to the university" because of the way the administration was handling the alleged cries of academic intimidation. "I would never even consider sending a child or grandchild of mine to either Barnard or Columbia,"...

    A Jewish Israeli "peace activist" from Tel Aviv has reportedly been arrested for planning terrorist attacks against Jewish civilian targets in conjunction with the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigade. Tali Fahima, 29, is in the custody of the General Security Services, according to Arutz Sheva. Authorities report she was aiding Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigade leader Zakaria Zubeidi – and may have been lured into the plot because of a romantic relationship with him. A gag order has been placed on the case. Fahima, according to the report, paid frequent visits to the slums of Jenin, where she developed a serious and apparently romantic...

    PARIS (Reuters) - French hospitals could not cope with a repeat of the heatwave which killed almost 15,000 people last summer, a prominent doctor said on Thursday. Patrick Pelloux, an emergency doctor who led attacks on the government over its handling of the 2003 heatwave, said there were not enough hospital beds or staff available. A "heatwave alert plan" unveiled by the government in May would not be enough to cope, he said. "The only thing that has incontestably changed compared to last year are prevention measures for a heatwave and the alert system," Pelloux, head of the AMUHF association...

    Vatican leaders condemn anti-Zionism By Florencia Arbiser (last thread on this topic a bit derailed and this containing more details) BUENOS AIRES, July 8 (JTA) -- In an unprecedented step, Catholic religious leaders have signed on to a statement rejecting anti-Zionism as a form of anti-Semitism. A statement expressing ``total rejection of anti Semitism in all its forms, including anti-Zionism as a more recent manifestation of anti Semitism," was released Thursday at the end of the 18th International Liaison Committee meeting between Jewish and Catholic intellectuals and religious leaders in Buenos Aires. The Catholic and Jewish leaders also committed to...

    Last Update: 09/07/2004 00:28 Catholic Church equates anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism By Shlomo Shamir, Haaretz Correspondent The Catholic Church condemned anti-Zionism as a cover for anti-Semitism by means of a joint statement issued by a forum of Catholic-Jewish intellectuals this week. The announcement was made at a gathering of religious, academic and other leading Jewish and Catholic figures in Buenos Aires. "We oppose anti-Semitism in any way and form, including anti-Zionism that has become of late a manifestation of anti-Semitism," the statement said. This is the first time that anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism have been equated by the Catholic Church. The statement...

    As anti-Americanism grows in Europe, its roots in guilt, shame and anti-Semitism are easily forgotten -- as is the US role in allowing Europe the luxuries of diplomacy and peace Anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Americanism are becoming linked and ever more rabid in today's Europe. They arise from a kind of blindness, combined with a strange mixture of alienation, guilt and fear toward both Israel and America. Millions of Europeans resist seeing Israel as a country fighting for its survival. Israel cannot afford to lose one major war, as it would mean the end of the Jewish state. But huge numbers...

    I think what you are doing here is nothing short of appalling and a disgrace to the memories of those we lost due to Adolf Hitler in the Holocaust. I have studied biblical passages and Jewish history, and your anti-Israel interpretation is terribly wrong. Supporting those who seek to annihilate us is absurd! You are being lulled into complacency and if your method of dealing with Anti Semitism was to suceed, we are almost guaranteed another Holocaust at the hands of the oppressors you are attempting to appease. Remember 1938? The British tried to appease Hitler and look what happened....

    Zionist Professor Sued for Views in Israel By Susan Rosenbluth   It does not matter to Professor Neve Gordon that scholars continue to debate exactly what is meant by “antisemitism.” The Ben-Gurion University (BGU) academic, whose pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel columns have appeared in numerous publications in the Jewish state and abroad, has launched a libel suit against another Israeli professor who dared to call Dr. Gordon an “antisemite.” The outcome of the suit may say more about the state of free speech in Israel than it will about either of the litigants. In fact, some observers in Israel say the case...

    Fifty-nine percent of Europeans say that Israel is a larger threat to world peace than North Korea, Iran or Afghanistan, according to a European Commission survey of approximately 7,500 Europeans, scheduled to be made public on Monday. Given a list of 15 countries, including Iran and North Korea, Israel was listed as the greatest threat to world peace, the Spanish daily El Pais reported. The EU has denied allegations that it suppressed the results of the survey. "This poll is an indication that Europeans have bought in, 'hook, line and sinker', to the vilification and demonization campaign directed against the...
