  • The Jews driven out of homes in Arab lands

    Jewish Chronicle ^ | 11-26-17 | Tom Gross
    The removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored, says Tom Gross It is not surprising, given the sheer scale of the Holocaust and its sadism, that it has dominated contemporary discourse among Jews and others. But, while the extermination of European Jews has rightfully (though belatedly) generated a great deal of study and research, the removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored. This ignorance extends to policy-makers at the highest level. Some journalists and politicians I have spoken to have expressed surprise when I even mentioned that Jews...
  • The Greatest Libel Since the Blood Libel

    The most infamous libel in history is the one known as the Blood Libel. This was the medieval lie leveled at Jews in some European countries that accused the Jews of killing Christian children to use their blood to make Passover matzo. As the author of a book on the history of anti-Semitism ("Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism"), having taught Jewish history at the college level, and as a committed Jew who has devoted great efforts to combating anti-Semitism, I do not easily compare anything to the Blood Libel. But perhaps the second greatest libel -- and certainly...

    A councillor from Britain’s Labour party who was suspended after being accused of sharing blood libels online and for saying Israeli Jews should “relocate” to America has been readmitted to the party, the British Jewish News reported on Wednesday. The councillor, Ilyas Aziz from Nottingham, tweeted on December 31, “Can resume my Labour Party activities now that my suspension lifted. Thanks to all who stood by me in difficult times.” Aziz, a supporter of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, implied in a Facebook post in 2014 that Israelis should “stop drinking Gaza’s blood,” which he allegedly retweeted from a Muslim youth...

    A Palestinian anti-Semitic blood libel about Israel and water A double crime was committed when Mahmoud Abbas, the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, an interim self-governing body that undemocratically controls the Arabs in sections of Judea & Samaria, spoke before the European Parliament on June 23. In his speech he spouted a Jew-hating blood libel as medieval in its words as those that led to the massacre and isolation of European Jews centuries ago. Having begun his speech by condemning incitement to violence, he inexplicably said;

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 25/6/16
    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas attempted to walk back controversial statements made during a recent address to the European Union parliament in Brussels, claiming on Saturday that he opposed "any attack on any religion", after having accused Israel of “poisoning Palestinian wells”. "Palestine is the cradle of the three monotheistic faiths. We stand strongly against any attack on any religion," Abbas said in a statement. The tacit acknowledgement of Judaism's roots in the Land of Israel, comes in stark contrast to Palestinian Authority propaganda which has for decades attempted to diminish the Jewish people's ancient history in Israel. In apparently...

    Bernie presents a clear and present danger. The joke is over. Done. Finished. Time to quit laughing. What a creepy character this man has turned out to be. He speaks. People listen. Millions pay attention. He tells socialist fairytales, people swoon. So now he's into full-blown "Jews poisoned the wells" territory. Now, as Jewish students are being tormented on campus by BDS and SJP bullies, and as BDS piles up boycott-Israel wins throughout the United States and around the world -- Bernie piles it on with stereotypes borrowed from the darkest of the Dark Ages. Bernie presents a clear and...

    The Hamas newspaper Falastin carried an article on Monday that claimed Jews in Hevron and Jerusalem held Purim ceremonies portraying the killing, torture and expulsion of Palestinians from “their land.” As proof, the author said that “settlers” uploaded a video to Arutz Sheva showing the 2009 execution of journalist Obeida Dweik in Hevron. […] Needless to say, there is no video on Arutz Sheva of anyone “executing” Dweik. He added that the “settlers” celebrate their Jewish holidays by performing “horrible crimes of murder with the support of the occupation government and military commanders” and that there is a rabbinic “blessing”...

    What if the biggest mystery surrounding Col. Moammar Gadhafi had nothing to do with his long, brutal reign as the world's most eccentric and violent leader turned pariah? And what if a long-lost letter from a Catholic cardinal who knew Gadhafi's true identity was evidence that could have solved the mystery? To many Libyan people, the biggest question mark about Gadhafi does not involve his repressive and dictatorial rule, delusional statements or brazen lies. Behind closed doors, for years, they've wondered if he is Jewish. Last week the issue came out in the open, as NBC's Richard Engel reported from...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the Knesset Wednesday in honor of visiting Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi, and said that Israel is being accused by the world despite having committed no crime. "We are not without mistakes, but when we are painted as the source of evil in the world, that is a blatant lie that conjures up clear memories from the past,” Netanyahu said. “The attitude of the new anti-Semites is a direct continuation of the blood libels and the anti-Semitism throughout the ages. Jews were always falsely tried, throughout history. The Jewish state is on trial in a...

    Accusations of anti-Semitism were leveled against a Muslim preacher on Wednesday, who revived Medieval blood libels against Jews in a sermon he made on the Temple Mount earlier. The preacher, Sheikh Khaled al-Mughrabi, who teaches religious classes on the mount and is an employee of the Waqf Temple Mount oversight organization, was accused of being an anti-Semite for the comments he made to his congregants. Palestinian Media Watch translated a lecture that had been published online, in which Mughrabi accused Jews of the age-old European anti-Semitic claim of slaughtering gentile children and draining their blood for use in Passover matzot....

    It appears that Sauron is living in Toronto, where he eeks out a meager living as a jeweler.  Making rings of power has always been his speciality, and imbuing them with subtle yet powerful evil is his passion. So when a lesbian couple entered his store and ordered custom wedding rings, they had no idea they were dealing with the Lord of Darkness. Nicole White and Pam Renouf liked dealing with Today’s Jewelers because the store custom-makes rings, CBC reported. "They were great to work with. They seemed to have no issues. They knew the two of us were a...
  • [Iranian] Media Claims Israel Used Aid Mission to Nepal As Cover for Baby Trafficking

    05/13/2015 6:26:45 AM PDT · by pabianice · 6 replies
    Israel used its humanitarian aid mission to Nepal as a cover for trafficking 25 Nepalese babies, two Spanish-language networks reported. Iranian HispanTV and Venezuela's Telesur networks broadcast the reports. Telesur is the national public television channel in Venezuela, which is rebroadcast throughout Latin America on other public television networks. HispanTV broadcast the original report, which quotes an unnamed NGO as stating that "Israel uses humanitarian help as a cover for trafficking of 25 babies in Nepal." Telesur picked up the report last week. The report stated, correctly, that of the 25 babies that were taken to Israel, "15 of them...

    Syrian commentator Hussam Shoei'b recently said that the immolation of the Jordanian pilot was "a clear demonstration of the barbarity of the Zionist entity," adding: "In the past, they used to knead [Passover] matzos with human blood and eat them." The statement was made on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV on February 6, 2015. Hussam Shoei'b: "What is being done by all these criminal gangs - ISIS Jabhat Al-Nusra, Ahrar Al-Sham, and all these groups with their Islamic names - cannot even be labeled 'Israeli.' It is downright Talmudic. The immolation of the Jordanian pilot is a clear demonstration of the barbarity...

    There is nothing new in the controversial affidavit of former US Navy lawyer Ward Boston, said A. Jay Cristol, a US federal judge and author of The Liberty Incident. On Wednesday, Boston spoke at a press conference in Washington, DC, claiming that former secretary of defense Robert McNamara and president Lyndon Johnson covered up a deliberate attack by Israel on the US intelligence-gathering ship. Boston had taken testimony of witnesses for the US Navy Court of Inquiry, headed by Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd, that examined the attack on the USS Liberty during the 1967 Six Day War. On June...

    An Israeli pilot who mistakenly attacked the American intelligence ship USS Liberty during the 1967 Six Day War said they were lucky he had no bombs – otherwise he would have sunk her. "There was a mistake. Mistakes happen. As far as I know, the mistake was of the USS Liberty being there in the first place," said Brig.-Gen. (res.) Yiftah Spector. After 36 years Spector, who this week was dismissed by the IAF for signing the pilots' refusal letter protesting the policy of targeted killings, agreed to speak to a reporter for the first time on his role in...

    Much propaganda is thrown against Israel in the "information war" but no subject is highlighted more than a tragic friendly-fire incident which occurred between Israel and the US almost 40 years ago. US Florida Judge Jay Cristol was responsible for having successfully petitioned the NSA to release US data confirming the accident. Cristol believes that Israel's enemies have tried to use this incident for decades to create a wedge between Washington and Jerusalem. Judge Cristol, in an exclusive interview with The Jerusalem Post explains what happened to the USS Liberty and discusses the relevance of the new information released by...

    It was the USS Liberty controversy that introduced me to the brusque art of Israel-bashing. More than a decade ago, at the height of the conflict during Yitzhak Shamir’s tenure as prime minister, I was at a laundromat in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, when a young and rather strange city councilman approached me. I knew him through my job as a reporter at the local newspaper in this small central Pennsylvania city. He abruptly launched into a screed against Israel. He opened by recalling how the Israeli military attacked an American ship, the USS Liberty, in 1967 and then proclaimed that the...

Israel has always said it had no idea the ship was American, but conspiracy theorists and anti-Israel propagandists still claim Israel sank the ship in the full knowledge that it was American. The documents, originally defined as top secret, were made public by Florida Judge Jay Cristol, who has been...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Reviewing documents covering 36 years, the State Department concluded Monday that Israel's attack on the U.S. spy ship Liberty during the 1967 Six Day War was an act of Israeli negligence. The United States also was negligent, a State Department official said, for failing to notify Israel that the electronic intelligence-gathering ship was cruising international waters off the Egyptian coast and for failing to withdraw the Liberty from the war zone. A daylong conference that studied fresh documents as well as the established record failed to produce a consensus for any of three views voiced most often:...

    New documents released by the State Department relating to the period of the 1967 Six Day War include CIA memos that say Israel did not know it was striking an American vessel when it attacked the USS Liberty off the coast of the Gaza Strip on June 8, 1967, killing 34 American sailors and injuring 172. The memos say the attack was carried out "by mistake, representing gross negligence." Along with the release of the documents, the historian for the top-secret National Security Agency said Monday he believed available evidence "strongly suggested" Israel did not know it was bombarding an...
