Sultan Knish: "Why Left Wing Anti-Zionism is Anti-Semitism"

In a clear demonstration of just how "progressive" they really are, the Anti-Israel left is hard at working trying to revive the medieval blood libel. First the Swedish daily Aftonbladet repeated Palestinian Arab propaganda about medically impossible organ thefts, and then the left wing Counterpunch magazine run by Saddam supporter Alexander Cockburn printed an article actually using medieval blood libels against Jews as proof. There is something striking about an Anti-Semitic radicalization on the left so extreme that after being accused of using organ thefts as a modern day blood libel, it actually tries to revive and legitimize medieval blood libels.

Ever heard of the freedom to print blood libel?

Honest Reporting: "Swedish Blood Libel: The Aftermath - A roundup of commentary on Aftonbladet's organ harvesting outrage"

Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet's story (translated into English in full here) accusing the IDF of harvesting Palestinian organs caused an uproar. Following its publication, we tracked hundreds of your e-mails to Aftonbladet Editor in Chief Jan Helin, who was certainly left in no doubt as to the depth of anger that his decision to publish an unsubstantiated blood libel had generated.

Donald Bostrom, the author of the offensive piece, duly demonstrated his utter lack of any basic journalistic standards when he said: "But whether it's true or not - I have no idea, I have no clue." On top of this, the story was further undermined as one of the Palestinian families interviewed said they never told any reporter that their son was missing organs.

Rather than acknowledging a case of shoddy, not to mention offensive journalism, Aftonbladet and even the Swedish government turned the issue into one of freedom of speech, as the situation escalated into a full blown spat between the Israeli and Swedish governments. (...) >>>

Atlas Shrugs: "FRANCE: BIG, BOLD, BUFF! "THE JEW HATERS" -- NEW POLITICAL PARTY IN FRANCE"

This is an advertisement, a billboard, for a new political party in France. How grave it is. Perhaps the punk jihadis like Fofana are encouraged to mutilate, torture and kill Jews with cultural permission. The Anti-Zionists - (this is blatant Nazism. Vichy lives.)

"FOR A FREE EUROPE!" (They mean a judenfree Europe!) - Free from Censorship (translation - free to openly hate Jews), speculators (?) and NATO (this is rich)

This time France doesn't need the Nazis. They're doing it themselves now. (...) >>>

PJM: "Oliphant does us a favor", by Roger Simon

Deliberately or not, he he has dropped the oldest of phony Leftist pretenses - that anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism are not the same. The poor, diminutive woman and child of Gaza in his cartoon are being eaten alive by a rapacious Jewish star, not by the flag of Israel. It is the religion or ethnic group (you decide), not the state - Jews, not Israelis - performing this supposedly horrific act. Well, thank you, Oliphant, you racial primitive you. You let the cat out of the bag we always knew was in there. And you did it in the pages of theWashington Post.

(...) getting through to, the Oliphant’s of the world - reminding them that it was the Israelis who voluntarily left Gaza only to have their townsbombarded month after month, that Gaza is ruled by a regime of religious fanatics who are pathologically misogynistic and homophobic and believe the entire globe should be Islamic, etc., etc. - is hopeless. Oliphant and company are unreachable, permanently reified. It is all depressing beyond words. (...) Durban I, only a few short months before 9/11, was an orgy of anti-Semitism, sponsored by the UN. This time effort has been put in by the UN organizers to make it not as overt, cleansing the superificial racism from the language while still ratifying the original Durban I document which branded Israel an apartheid state (...) Thankfully we have Oliphant’s delightful cartoon to remind us of the true intentions (...) >>>

The EU Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia (taken over since March 1,2007 by the EU FRA - Fundamental Rights Agency in Vienna) "Working Definition" on Anti-Semitism clearly specifies such comments as anti-semitic. The culprit is the "Sinn Fein" Party spokesperson on "Justice, Equality and International Affairs". They were actively working with the Nazis, and with the 10 Nazi agents landed in Ireland, in WW II, all of whom were captured, and each year the Party publicly honours the "IRA Chief-of-Staff" Sean Russell, 47, who bombed England in 1939, before WW II started, murdering 7 civilians, and who died on a Nazi submarine on his way to Ireland, on Aug 14, 1940 off the Galway coast. Over 900 people were slaughtered in Belfast City and Derry City by Nazi bombing in April-May, 1941, guided by local IRA, including the late father of current "SF" President Gerry Adams, from Belfast, and another 29 people were murdered in Dublin City ... Hat Tip: Tom Carew

A senior Sinn Fein politician has compared Ireland’s only Jewish TD and the Israeli ambassador to a notorious Nazi propagandist. Aengus O’Snodaigh launched the attack on the pair during an Irish parliamentary committee hearing into the conflict in Gaza. The Sinn Fein justice, equality and international affairs spokesman accused Ambassador Zion Evrony and Fine Gael’s Alan Shatter of indefensible attempts to justify the Israeli bombing campaign. He likened their defence of the invasion to the arguments of Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. “Goebbels would have been proud of the twisted logic and half truths,” he said.

The Spectator: "The terrible warning of a Holocaust survivor", by Douglas Davis

At my dinner table on Friday night, a holocaust survivor admits that she is trying to persuade her son to take his family out of Europe to America, Canada, Australia, Canada, Australia, Israel... (...) As tens of thousands of demonstrators march through the streets of Europe, the chants are modified but the message remains substantially intact: ‘Hamas, Hamas, Hamas — Jews to the Gas’. Or, more simply: ‘Death to the Jews’. Many European Jews, even well-established, affluent Jews, have been checking the suitcase they keep packed under the bed. (...) A hundred yards from my front door, I encounter the slogan, freshly painted in yellow, across the pavement: ‘Kill the Filthy Jews’. I am shocked. And shocked that I am shocked. (...) anti-Israel protesters insisted they were motivated by political animus against Zionism rather than racial prejudice against Jews.

The Hamas Charter, which sets out of the guiding principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement — xenophobic, racist and anti-Semitic — removes the distinction. (...) Article Seven of the Charter provides the religious justification: ‘The Prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: “The [end of days] will not come until Muslims fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: ‘Oh Muslim, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him!’”’ (...) There can be no doubt that, for many, Israel-hatred is a cover for Jew-hatred. There can also be no doubt that this figleaf is becoming redundant. The contagion has passed through the membrane and the post-Holocaust taboo against open expressions of anti-Semitism is slipping away. (...) I am hoping that my psychiatrist will be able to explain why so many Jews have been propelled into the arms of those who seek their destruction. Precisely what part of the Hamas Charter are they defending? (...) >>>

Atlas Shrugs: "DEPRAVED UN, MEDIA MULES MANUFACTURE JEWISH BLOOD LIBELS: GIN UP THE JEWHATE"

Remember, Muhammad said, "War Is Deceit." There is a dangerous recklessness to all of the lies and misinformation that the Islamic jihadists, along with left, the internationalists, the media and other useful idiots, are trafficking in to smear the Jews. One after another, report after erroneous report of some Jewish crime (crimes that the jihad has committed) are published with no back up substantiation or merit. Hoaxes, lies, all of it - deliberately fueling an invigorated wave of anti-semitism. If you are in 'journalism' or any responsible position of news dissemination, you cannot look at the depraved Jew hating insanity sweeping the globe and not say to yourself, "I must be responsible in what I print, I must be accurate in my reportage. There is a mental illness, a moral depravity spreading like a cancer through besieged societies. I have seen this before. I know where this leads. I must be responsible". But we are witnessing the opposite taking place. The media can't throw enough kerosene on the the growing fire. (...) >>>

PJM: "The Stupidity of Equating Anti-Semitism with ‘Islamaphobia’", by John Rosenthal
“Conceptions of the Muslim as Enemy — Conceptions of the Jew as Enemy.” This was the title of a conference held on December 8 at Berlin’s Center for Research on Anti-Semitism. The stated aim of the conference was to employ the template of anti-Semitism in order to analyze an allegedly new form of kindred prejudice: “Islamophobia.” The announcement of the conference sparked a raging controversy in Germany. (...)

Broder observed
: Of course, you can compare everything and anything. You can compare Cologne to a city, the [German media prize] the Bambi with the Oscar, a currywurst with a delicacy, or even academic “Anti-Semitism experts” with bean-counters. But to mention anti-Semitism in the same breath as Islamophobia is as off-base as talk of “chicken concentration camps” to refer to ordinary chicken farms (...) “glucodermaphobia” — fear of the film that forms on warm milk when it is left standing for too long. Persons who suffer from phobias avoid what they fear. They don’t take the elevator, don’t go out onto public spaces, and steer clear of reptiles. An anti-Semite, on the other hand, feels compelled to seek contact with the object of his aversion. Anti-Semitism is not a phobia, but rather a kind of psychotic obsession. … The director of a Center for Research on Anti-Semitism ought to know that. … (...)

The extension of the Berlin center’s research activities to cover other groups that were subject to persecution on racial grounds by Nazi Germany makes perfect sense in this connection. This is most obviously the case with respect to Sinti and Roma (”Gypsies”), hundreds of thousands of whom died in Nazi concentration camps during WWII. The extension to Muslims, however, makes no sense whatsoever. As has long been known and as recent academic research has documented in great detail, far from being the object of Nazi persecution, Muslims were courted by the Nazis as natural allies in a supposedly common struggle against “Jewish domination” and Anglo-American “imperialism.” (On the specific example of the Mufti of Jerusalem, see my recent book review “The Mufti and the Holocaust”.) (...)

The clear suggestion is that “Islamophobia” is, in effect, nothing less than the new form of anti-Semitism (...) to treat September 11, 2001 as just some date that for no apparent reason happens to mark the rise of anti-Islamic “resentments” — is to coquette with negationism vis-à-vis Islamic extremist violence and the tens of thousands of victims it has claimed. (...) It is, above all, this remarkable indifference to the reality of Islamic extremism that renders the Berlin center’s comparison of anti-Semitism and “Islamophobia” so outrageous. There was no “Jewish” 9/11, nor were there any Jewish Bali bombings or Mumbai attacks and so on. The basis of the eliminationist anti-Semitism that led to the Holocaust was a myth of Jewish world conspiracy.

Al-Qaeda and affiliated groups that attempt to establish their conception of Islamic rule by means of violence are no myth. (Or perhaps Wolfgang Benz and his fellow “prejudice researchers” believe they are?) The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the founding text of the myth of Jewish “world conspiracy,” was a forgery whose global influence (as the French historian Henri Rollin has shown) derived in no small measure from its conscious dissemination by agents of German propaganda. It was, moreover, alleged to be a “secret document” that had to be “discovered.” The fundamental texts of the Islamist movement — from Sayyid Qutb’s Milestones to Osama bin Laden’s “World Islamic Front Statement for Jihad against Jews and Crusaders” — are authentic and are widely and eagerly disseminated by Islamist organizations themselves. There is nothing “secretive” or conspiratorial about them. (...) >>>

Jewcy: "Understanding the Islam in Islamic Antisemitism", by Andrew G. Bostom (in 3 parts) - FEATURE - ASSIGNED READING

Recently Jewcy posted a short opinion piece "On Islamic Antisemitism" which consisted almost entirely of extracts from brief, superficial works on the subject by Bernard Lewis, Daniel Pipes, Robert Wistrich, and Efraim Karsh--none of whom, despite their other areas of expertise, have ever studied Islamic Antisemitism in a serious, comprehensive manner. The glib conceptions of these authors--which are simply affirmed without ever giving any substantive proofs (perhaps because the relevant doctrinal and historical data provides negative proofs), and repeated verbatim and uncritically in the posting by Michael Ezra--remind me, as a clinical investigator in medicine, of a scene from Woody Allen's film "Sleeper."

Sultan Knish: "Socialism and Anti-Semitism"

Hugo Chavez's "Jewish Problem" demonstrates that leftist antisemitism has very little to do with the existence of Israel or any so-called oppression of the Palestinian Arabs.The Marxist and leftist hatred for Jews long predates the modern State of Israel. In fact it goes back to Marx himself, who despite having Jewish ancestry, hated Jews all the more. When Marx wrote, "Money is the jealous god of Israel, beside which no other god may exist... The Jew has emancipated himself in a Jewish manner, not only because he has acquired financial power, but also because, through him and also apart from him, money has become a world power and the practical Jewish spirit has become the practical spirit of the Christian nations. The Jews have emancipated themselves insofar as the Christians have become Jews", he was setting forth the antisemitic viewpoint of Marxism that continues to this day. (...) Jews are simply an embarrassment for the prophets of socialism, because Jews disprove its fondest premise, that only government control can insure equality and justice. (...) Socialists traffic in antisemitism, not because of Israel, but because they resent Jews and because it is a cheap source of bigoted populism (...) Leftist antisemitism is not a Jewish burden, it is the socialist burden. It is driven by the socialist distaste for the individual, for individual accomplishment and striving, out of tune with the collective. For that is what Jews ultimately are. The madness of socialism is the madness of crowds, of a great voice howling at a mob and pointing a well manicured finger at a Jew and proclaiming, "There is your enemy." (...) >>>

... the pomo variant, anti-Zionism...

Pajamas: "Anti-Semitism Without Anti-Semites," by Henryk Broder

Last month, the Domestic Affairs Committee of the German Bundestag held public hearings on anti-Semitism in Germany. Many of the speakers chose to focus on the “classical” anti-Semitism to be found in what in Germany are euphemistically called “right-wing extremist” milieus, i.e., among skinheads and self-avowed neo-Nazis. The journalist Henryk Broder, however, located the problem elsewhere: namely, in the mainstream “anti-Zionist anti-Semitism” to be found, for instance, among academics … and Bundestag members. Pajamas Media here presents a complete English translation of Henryk Broder’s statement to the Bundestag’s Domestic Affairs Committee. "(...) prejudices — literally “pre-judgments” [Vorurteile] — are harmless. I have prejudices, you have prejudices: everyone does. It is only negative prejudices that bother us. (...) The distinction between a prejudice and a resentment is as follows: a prejudice concerns a person’s behavior; a resentment concerns that person’s very existence. Anti-Semitism is a resentment. The anti-Semite does not begrudge the Jew how he is or what he does, but that he is at all. (...) Like all social phenomena, anti-Semitism is susceptible to transformation. (...) The modern anti-Semite (...) does not have a shaved head. He has good manners and often an academic title as well. He mourns for the Jews who died in the Holocaust. (...) But at the same time he militates for the right of Iran to have atomic weapons. For “how can one deny Iran what one has permitted Israel or Pakistan?” as Norman Paech [the foreign policy spokesperson of the German Left Party] has put it. Or he inverts the causal relationship and claims that it is Israel that is threatening Iran and not vice-versa — as [German Middle East scholar] Dr. Udo Steinbach did in a recent radio interview. (...) He is not bothered by what Israel does or does not do, but rather by the fact that Israel exists. (...) >>>

ownhall: "The Big Anti-Semitic Lie That Won't Go Away,"
by David R. Stokes

(...) For decades school children in Muslim nations (not to mention their parents at home) have been baptized in anti-Semitic narratives. The opinions in their world about Jews in general, and Israel in particular, are concrete – thoroughly mixed up and permanently set. And the most persistent and pernicious ideas that have been accepted by millions as factual truth flowed from the poisonous pen of a guy named Mathieu Golovinski. The spurious publication called the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is an Islamist must-read. The work tells a story that fits the pattern of long-standing prejudices. The words reinforce the visceral hatred Islamists have toward Jews. (...) >>>

The German government has admitted it was deeply involved in funding last month's conference here on the Middle East, and reports indicate it suggested inviting former Iranian deputy foreign minister Muhammad Javad Ardashir Larijani to speak at the gathering, where he called for the destruction of Israel.

According to critics, it appears to be the first government-funded event in Germany since WWII in which the government sponsored a speaker who advocated a second Holocaust against Jews.

WorldNetDaily: "Google Earth: Israel 'stole Palestinian land' - Says Jews drove out Arabs even though town was founded on empty sand dunes" - Hat Tip FaceBook Group "Against the Creation of "Palestine" in Google Earth"

An Israeli town is suing Internet giant Google after surprised municipal officials discovered Google Earth, the popular, user-driven satellite map, labels their city as stolen Palestinian land. "[The label] is simply complete nonsense," Yossi Ben-Artzi, a history professor at Israel's Haifa University told Yediot Ahronot, Israel's leading daily. "Kiryat Yam was built on sand dunes, and there wasn't any Palestinian village in the area. The lands were bought in 1939 by the Gav Yam construction company." The professor was responding to a criminal complaint filed by the northern Israeli coastal town of Kiryat Yam, which a Google Earth user mapped as stolen by Jews when Israel was founded in 1948.

The Spectator: "The club of tyranny’s Falked tongue", by Melanie Phillips

The UN has appointed a man to investigate Israel’s behaviour who is incapable of telling the difference between genocide and the attempt to defend a people from becoming its victims, and accuses those defenders instead of being the perpetrators of genocide despite the demonstrable evidence to the contrary. Professor Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council special rapporteur on the Palestinian territories (whose remit, however, will not include reporting on the Palestinians!) has compared Israel’s behaviour in Gaza to the Nazis. (...)

The virulent malice towards Israel openly displayed by both the terms of Falk’s appointment and the prejudice of the man himself is but the latest illustration of the UN’s true character as a club of tyranny. Its amusingly named Human Rights Council, after all, was responsible for the frenzied hate-fest against Israel and the Jews in its grotesquely named World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance which it staged in Durban a few days before 9/11, and which demonised Israel as a Nazi and apartheid state, promoted Holocaust denial and used images of anti-Jewish hatred straight out of the Nazi lexicon (and is to have a threatened sequel, Durban II, next year to implement this vile agenda). John McCain has it exactly right when he talks about replacing the UN by a union of democracies (...) >>>
