UN WATCH: LONE JEWISH STATE SINGLED OUT FOR BEING WORLD’S ONLY VIOLATOR OF ”HEALTH RIGHTS”…….

The UN is a complete freak show………

UK, France, Germany join UN to single out Israel as world’s only violator of health rights

Sweden WHO 2016

Swedish delegate joins UK, France, Germany and other EU states today in singling out Israel at the 2016 WHO world assembly

GENEVA, May 25 — The UK, France, Germany and other EU states voted today for a UN resolution, co-sponsored by the Arab group of states and the Palestinian delegation, that singled out Israel at the annual assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) as the only violator of “mental, physical and environmental health,” and commissioned a WHO delegation to investigate and report on “the health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory” and in “the occupied Syrian Golan,” and to place it on the agenda again at next year’s meeting.

By contrast, the UN assembly did not address Syrian hospitals being bombed by Syrian and Russian warplanes, or millions of Yemenis denied access to food and water by the Saudi-led bombings and blockade, nor did it pass a resolution on any other country in the world. Out of 24 items on the meeting’s agenda, only one, Item No. 19 against Israel, focused on a specific country.

“The UN reached new heights of absurdity today,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer, “by enacting a resolution which accuses Israel of violating the health rights of Syrians in the Golan, even as in reality Israeli hospitals continue their life-saving treatment for Syrians fleeing to the Golan from the Assad regime’s barbaric attacks.”

IRANIAN DEFENSE MINISTER BLAMES JEWS-US FOR TRIGGERING WARS IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES……

Sadly there are those within the ”close the borders” movement in Europe who parrot the nonsense of this Jew hater.

All the while it is the Muslims themselves that trigger their wars because it’s within the inherent nature of totalitarian Islam to do so. Sunnis hating Shiias and vice versa has nothing to do with Jews and the US, but with Islam. Self determination for the Arab/Muslim regions of the Levant and Maghreb after the fall of the Turkish Empire was overseen by the victorious powers of Europe in the form of mandates.

This was the first ”democracy project” of the region. It ended in failure (except in Israel) due to the totalitarian nature of Islam, there were no civil societies in existence to bring forth civil rule. That dynamic is still with us to this day, and violence that erupts there is the result of their culture steeped in Islamic thinking and sharia based law.

NOTE: That some Westerners still don’t get that, speaks more about their own Jew hatred than about the targets of their ire.

“What is today happening in Syria and Iraq is a deep-seated US-Zionist conspiracy that has triggered war in Muslim territories.”

Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan told reporters on Tuesday that the Iraq and Syrian conflicts are a result of a deep, long-term plot hatched by Israel and the United States, according to reports by Iran’s Press TV.
“What is today happening in Syria and Iraq is a deep-seated US-Zionist conspiracy that has triggered war in Muslim territories,” said Dehqan.
According to the defense minister, Israeli is responsible for equipping the terrorists who then lead attacks on innocent Muslims.
“Zionists are supporting terrorists and equipping them,” said Dehqan according to the report.

They are “pitting them against Muslims. What is important for them is to guarantee the Zionist regime’s security,” he added.

Berlin – A widening anti-Semitism scandal involving the Protestant Church and a network of NGOs in the city of Bremen that call for a boycott of Israel prompted the Green Party to launch an investigation, at the same time saying the employment of a pastor who declared himself a Jew-hater appears to be untenable.

“As the Green faction, we are preparing a parliamentary inquiry that will deal with anti-Semitic tendencies in Bremen,” Kirsten Kappert- Gonther, the deputy head of the Green Party in the city government, wrote The Jerusalem Post by email last week.

After the Protestant Pastor Volker Keller boasted in an email to the Post that he is an anti-Semite – and the leadership of the Bremen Jewish community announced its refusal to work with Keller – Kappert-Gonther told the Post on Wednesday that “mutual trust, in the meantime, is so disturbed that I find it difficult to imagine that good cooperation in the Council for Integration is still possible.”

BDS SPREADING JEW HATRED ACROSS U.S. CAMPUSES LIKE WILD FIRE……..

Because the Left and the Muslims form a Jew hating symbiosis……

In the era of Obama and the rise of the Left, the Jews will feel the pinch first as the country slides into the abyss.

BDS SPREADS ANTI-SEMITISM ACROSS U.S. CAMPUSES

Where BDS goes, Jew hatred follows.

Reprinted from InvestigativeProject.org.

Anti-Semitic incidents seem to spring up each week on college campuses throughout the United States. According to a study, “The strongest predictor of anti-Jewish hostility on campus” is the presence of a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. The greater the BDS activity, especially involving faculty members, the more likely anti-Semitic episodes become, said the study issued last month by the AMCHA Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to investigating, documenting, and combating anti-Semitism on U.S. campuses.

One recent example occurred on April 15, when the City University of New York Doctoral Students’ Council passed a resolution calling for an academic boycott of Israel, 42-19. Weeks earlier, a CUNY professor and BDS advocate claimed that the killing of Palestinians in Gaza “reflects Jewish values.” On CUNY campuses, the New York Observer reports, Jewish students were harassed, with “Jews out of CUNY” uttered in at least one instance, and a professor who wears a yarmulke was called a “Zionist pig.”

On April 21, two-thirds of a union representing about 2,000 graduate students at New York University voted to approve a motion to support a BDS resolution against Israel. The motion also urges the union and its affiliate, the United Auto Workers, to divest from Israeli companies. The resolution asks NYU to close its program at Tel Aviv University, claiming the program violates NYU’s non-discrimination policy.

DR.MANFRED GERSTENFELD: HOW ANTISEMITISM HAS CHANGED SINCE THE SHOAH……..

This was first published, without footnotes, in the Jerusalem Post, and reposted here with the author’s consent.

HOW ANTISEMITISM HAS CHANGED SINCE THE SHOAH

Manfred Gerstenfeld

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThe upcoming Yom HaShoah is an appropriate occasion to review the many ways in which anti-Semitism has changed since the Holocaust. Identifying the current forms of anti-Semitism is all the more important as they are in continuation of the extreme hatred of Jews in much of Europe which provided the infrastructure for the genocide of six million Jews.

Such an analysis is a complex matter. The basic motifs of anti-Semitism have remained unchanged for almost two millennia, yet their manifestations have mutated and continue to do so. The outrageous idea that the Jews are absolute evil was introduced by Christians many centuries ago and holds sway in some circles until today. This demonization is based on the false blame attributed to all Jews, past, present and future, for the death of Jesus.

Nazism, the most extreme movement of ethnic/national anti-Semitism, transformed this core motif of Jews being absolute evil into a pseudo-scientific classification of Jews as subhuman. Currently the motif of absolute evil has been assigned to Nazism. This has mutated into perceptions of Israel as a Nazi state. Polls have shown that beliefs such as “Israel conducts a war of extermination against the Palestinians” have the support of at least 40% of the European population.1

Similar mutations have occurred concerning major sub-motifs. “Jewish conspiracies” have morphed into “Zionist conspiracies.”2 The blood libel, an invented medieval defamation accusing Jews of using the blood of Christian children to bake matzot, has also mutated within the context of anti-Israelism. Several years ago the largest Swedish paper, the social democrat Aftonbladet published an article stating that Israel kills Palestinians in order to harvest their organs for Jews.3

Besides mutations in ancient hate motifs, there have been significant other innovations in post-Holocaust anti-Semitism. The most obvious is the emergence of Holocaust denial. Its underlying concept is simple: the evil surviving Jews invented a genocide of 6 million of their co-religionists by the Germans and their allies. They thus assumed the false position of absolute victims and dishonestly accused many Europeans of a non-existent mass murder.

Apart from the Holocaust, a number of other factors caused changes which greatly influenced post-war anti-Semitism. One of these was the creation of the State of Israel, which permitted anti-Semites to aim their hatred at the Jewish state rather than to target the surviving Jews. The aforementioned labeling of Israel as a Nazi state is the clearest example of this.

GETTING RID OF JEW HATRED NEEDS THE DISINFECTANT OF DAYLIGHT…….

The sheer number of British politicians using anti-Semitic imagery, therefore, must concern Israel, because it indicates there are many, many constituents out there receptive to such rhetoric.

Analysis: The upside of the British Labor Party’s anti-Semitism furor

Another day, another revelation of anti-Semitism inside Britain’s Labor Party.

Not one, but two, party functionaries were suspended Monday for anti-Semitic rants.

One, Ilyas Aziz, a Labor councilor in Nottingham, was suspended for 2014 Facebook posts saying, similar to a suspended MP, that Israel should be relocated to the US. He added an illustration implying that Israel drank the blood of Gazans.

What the brouhaha over anti-Semitism in the Labor Party has effectively done is thrust Israel, Zionism and the Jews into the center of London’s upcoming municipal elections, where Labor’s candidate, Sadiq Khan, has said these revelations could very well cost him the vote. And the questions must be raised: Is all the attention over the issue good for Israel? Is it good for Israel that anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism have turned into a central election issue in Britain? On the one hand, the glass here is half empty. If these anti-Semitic comments, tweets and Facebook posts were just the sentiments of a maverick Labor party functionary, one could perhaps turn a blind eye and say it is all sound and fury signifying nothing.

US authorities say one arrested in foiled bomb plot on Florida synagogue

US federal agents over the weekend arrested one suspect in what is said to be a thwarted bomb attack on a synagogue in Florida, local news reported Monday.

Miami-Fort Lauderdale’s 7News cited law enforcement sources as saying the FBI had set up a sting operation Friday to foil the planned attack at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center.

According to the sources, authorities posed as terrorists and managed to detain the suspect, who was allegedly planning to hurl an explosive device at the Jewish house of worship in the Miami area.

Friday’s arrest came as crowds filled the synagogue in observance of the second to last day of the Passover holiday.

The arrested suspect may have converted to Islam, according to the local news reports.

The sources underlined that no harm was caused to the synagogue or its worshipers. They added that the center had not been in immediate danger as federal agents took the suspect into custody before any harmful action occurred.

UK: JEWISH LABOR MP REVEALS JEW HATRED FROM WITHIN THE RANKS…….

Statism is a very real threat and danger to the Jewish people….

It always behooves me to explain to persecuted minorities, Jews and others, that you’re not making yourself, or any other minority, let alone society in general, any safer by adhering to a statist ideology. All genocides and mass persecutions and systematic discrimination have resulted from a governing system that centralized concentrated power. The all powerful government.

The more governing power is dispersed to the local communities the freer the individual, the less likely minorities will be persecuted, at least on a grand scale. Social democrats and the whole kaleidoscope of statist parties are threats to the individual, even more so to the minority. Multiculturalism, the construct of the statist, is a ruse.

Jewish Labour MP: Anti-Semitism is very real and a danger to the Jewish people

Britain’s Labour Party is in the middle of an anti-Semitic storm following the remarks of Ken Livingstone. Luciana Berger, a Jewish MP from the party, uploaded to her Twitter account the anti-Semitic harassment and threats she has been receiving on a regular basis.

In the midst of the storm that began in Britain surrounding the controversial statements of two Labour Party members, Ken Livingstone and Naz Shah, regarding Israel and Hitler, Berger published some of the anti-Semitic harassment she has been receiving. 34-year-old Berger claimed that she has received thousands of messages and emails containing anti-Semitic content.

Berger presented messages that she has received through Twitter and WhatsApp. Some of the messages contain pictures of yellow badges, identical to the symbol that the Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust. In other messages, she is portrayed as a miser or having a big nose. In some messages, people have also threatened to rape or murder her- just because she is Jewish.

Harvard Students Hurl Anti-Semitic Slurs at Liberal Israeli MK

“A question about the odor of Ms. Tzipi Livni, she’s very smelly, and I was just wondering.”

Tiffany Gabbay

Just when you think once-prestigious Harvard could fall further from grace, Harvard students hurled anti-Semitic epithets at Israel’s former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni during her recent talk at the University.

Last Thursday, Harvard Law School hosted a panel discussion with guest speakers Dennis Ross and former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni.

During a question and answer session a president of a student organization mocked the Israeli leader, asking her, “How is it that you are so smelly?”

When his question drew stunned silence, he clarified his “question.”

“A question about the odor of Ms. Tzipi Livni, she’s very smelly, and I was just wondering.”

This is the kind of discourse an Ivy League education gets you.

The Harvard Law Record blasted the anti-Semitic an incident Monday, but failed to identify the student perpetrator.

The paper found the insult a clear reference to Livni’s ethnicity and nationality, noting that the comments “revived the antiquated and offensive notion of the ‘smelly Jew’ – a term reeking of anti-Semitism – in order to insult her.”

US CONGRESSIONAL PANEL ACKNOWLEDGES ISLAM 101 IN EUROPE FUELING DIRE THREAT TO JEWS……..

Shhhhh! This ruins the meme of those who suspect “da Jooos” secretly trying to undermine Europe with Muslims for their own benefit.

The status quo/ruling elite (a collection of statists and neo-statists) are not looking out for the best interests of the citizenry at large, though at first (giving the benefit of the doubt here) they thought that they can handle things. They are all out of their depth, they reject enlightenment philosophy based on human experience, in favor of an utopian based ideology, and it’s badly crashing around them.

Islamic radicalization fuels ‘dire’ threat to Jews in Europe, congressional panel hears

A congressional human rights commission heard testimony from experts on how Islamic radicalization in Europe has ramped up risk for Jewish communities.

“ISIS especially hates the Jewish people and has instructed its followers to prioritize killing them,” Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., the chairman of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, said Tuesday, launching the hearing he called in the wake of recent attacks in Europe, and referring to the Islamic State terrorist group behind some of the recent major attacks in Europe.

John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who now leads a Rutgers University initiative to assess how to protect communities vulnerable to terrorism, said terrorist attacks were threatening the viability of Jewish Europe.

“The situation on the ground has become dire, the challenge to the Jewish communities has become nothing less than existential,” he said. “Many stalwart [Jewish] leaders have become ambivalent about remaining in Europe at all.”

Paul Goldenberg, the director of the Secure Communities Network, an initiative of the Jewish Federations of North America, described a continuum of anti-Semitic violence over the last 20 years from attacks originating in right-wing extremism to those carried out by militant Islamists.

“In the span of two decades, we’ve moved from swastikas on buildings, the desecration of graveyards and simple assaults as well as long-standing institutionalized anti-Semitism to brutal violence, commando-style shooting attacks and even suicide bombings on the streets of Europe by battlefield-trained terrorist cells and organizations,” he said.

The experts, answering questions from Democrats and Republicans on the panel, identified the failure of European law enforcement agencies to fully coordinate and engage with Muslim communities as factors hindering bids to prevent attacks.

VICE NEWS: EUROPE’S JEWISH EXODUS…….

And some maroons (fringe voices) in the anti-Islamization movement, are now blaming solely Jews for the importation of Muslims into Europe and to the West in general, though such policies are working against the Jews themselves.

What’s at work here is the statist mindset, Leftist “masterminds and geniuses” in cahoots with their throw-in pseudo conservatives (establishment lackies) are behind the open doors policies, in an attempt to overwhelm these nation states with 3rd world people nearest to their borders.

It’s statism that’s to blame for the importation of Jew hating Muslims, and as a consequence, Jews getting-out-of-dodge, fleeing persecution in Europe. They’ve seen this kind of thing before, and fortunately, have a Jewish state to turn to in times of trouble.

Europe’s Jewish Exodus

March 18, 2016 | 8:45 pm
In the wake of recent terror attacks in Europe — several of which targeted Jewish institutions — some politicians and religious leaders have predicted an exodus of Jewish people from the continent. In some ways, the numbers stack up. Last year, a record 8,000 Jews arrived in Israel from France — with another 15,000 coming from Eastern Europe.

But some critics argue that reports of Jewish flight are overblown; they accuse Israel of taking advantage of fears in Europe to attract new immigrants and serve the interests of the Israeli state. “We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in February 2015. “I would like to tell all European Jews and all Jews wherever they are: Israel is the home of every Jew.”

VICE News investigates these predictions of a mass Jewish migration — and the forces behind them.

SWEDEN: BATTLE AGAINST JEW HATRED LOST……?

Sweden has long since decided to commit national suicide decades ago, we are only just now seeing the fruits of that decision.

swedicide

Just like in any big organizational entity, if you want to succeed within its ranks, you have to incorporate its ideology, discourse and vocabulary. We see this within the halls of the EU for an example, if you want to move up the ranks, you have to be a team player, or be relegated to the periphery like UKIP’s truth telling leader, Nigel Farage, for an example.

Jewish leaders of Sweden are now in a pickle, foolishly believing that multiculturalism would offer them (and other minorities) a buffer from traditional anti-Jewish forces, are now faced with an exponential explosion of Jew hatred from the state’s most prized pet project, Islamic immigrants.

They are also facing irrational hatred by those who (falsely and foolishly) accuse them of being the sole orchestrators of multiculturalism, when it has been a collection of different political forces on the Left, and pseudo conservative (throw-ins) on the Right. All of them supporting it for varying reasons. But it has been a de facto Leftist agenda/policy.

The antisemitism now very prevalent is then downplayed by the Swedish government, politicians, bureaucracy, media and academia, in much the same way as Muslim rape/sex grooming gangs were in the UK. The battle against antisemitism was lost the day multiculturalism was embraced, and the policy of mass immigration instituted, with a well indoctrinated and intimidated populace nodding its head in approval.

IS SWEDEN A LOST CAUSE? HAS BATTLE AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM BEEN LOST?

In one of the most shocking recent anti-Semitism episodes to emerge, a Jewish-Israeli woman referred to as ‘A’ who emigrated to Sweden 39 years ago, has claimed she was fired from a teaching post for being Jewish.

images-6After just a week’s employment at the school in Malmö, the principal told ‘A’ there could be problems because of her origins. “It won’t be easy for you here. Most of the Swedish students are racists. They hate everybody, but especially the Jews, so it’s very possible you’ll ‘get it’ from both the Swedish and the Arab students.” He suggested she find a different job, far from any school.

Annika Hernroth-Rothstein, a Swedish-Jewish activist well-known in the country for her pro-Israel activism and both personal and public battles against anti-Semitism in Europe, told The Algemeiner that, “Malmö is lost to us. And by that I mean Sweden, not merely Jews. This is a city that represents an accelerated version of what we see going on in the rest of the country and the continent today.”

Annika Hernroth-Rothstein

Annika Hernroth-Rothstein

Hernroth-Rothstein said that Swedish municipalities have started segregating communal swimming pools, due to the complaints by young women that immigrant men molest them when they go swimming. This, she said, “is how Sweden responds to the violation of human rights and transgression of the Swedish law — it adapts to the perpetrator and abandons the victim, and I see the same thing happening to us Jews in Sweden today. Indeed, the teacher in question will likely receive neither a public apology nor compensation, but she is asked to adapt to the perpetrators and accept this reality. There is no excuse for this travesty of justice.”

BELGIAN OFFICIAL SAYS “KILL EACH AND EVERY JEW”…….

The other day I reported on ‘Belgians’ cheering in the streets upon hearing of the islamonazi massacre at the Brussels airport, and a crisis center employee denying the existence of Israel.

This is something that the promoters of the anti-Israel meme of the Jews / Zionists controlling muslim immigration vis-a-vis multiculturalism, fail to take into consideration. This (the Islamization of Europe) all works against Jewish communities throughout the West, as well as against future Israel social and economic relations with Europe.

NOTE: As Europe becomes more islamized, we can expect this kind of behaviour becoming the norm. It’s why many Jews throughout Europe are against the importation of Muslims, and why Israel is worried about the eventual slipping of Europe from the realm of free states.

BEYOND PARANOIA: A DOCUMENTARY ON ANTI-ISRAELISM AS A MUTATION OF ANTI-SEMITISM…….

Dr.Manfred Gerstenfeld’s interview with Monique Schwarz was first published in INN, and republished here with the author’s consent.

BEYOND PARANOIA: A DOCUMENTARY ON ANTI-ISRAELISM AS A MUTATION OF ANTI-SEMITISM

Interview with Monique Schwarz

Dr.Manfred Gerstenfeld“Recently my new documentary Beyond Paranoia was released. It tells how close anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism are. My original observations on this similarity go back to 1987 during the first Intifada. I was then living in Australia.

“I noticed that there were consistent terms being applied in describing Israel. These were often pejorative and emotional. They included expressions such as that Jews control the world and that the Israel Lobby controls the American President. I then became very aware that anti-Israel and anti-Zionist comments and attitudes were getting increasingly stronger throughout the world.”

Monique Schwarz is an Australian filmmaker who has been involved in the production and distribution of independent documentary films for the last thirty years. One of her movies Mamadrama – The Jewish Mother in Cinema, released in 2001 had very wide international television, theatrical and educational distribution, and is still being screened today.

Schwarz says: “This initial awareness gradually made me want to make a movie about how comments made about Israel and Zionism overlapped with the old traditional anti-Semitism, something I had experienced myself. I was born in Switzerland during the Holocaust to survivor parents and immigrated to Australia in 1950 from France.

“To expose the hatred of Israel I wanted to make a documentary which, in addition to pictures, would include interviews with experts. They could describe and analyze the various aspects of the overlay of anti-Israelism and anti-Semitism. They could illustrate how the main classic hate motifs have mutated and are then used against Israel. That seemed to me the best way to address both Jewish and non-Jewish audiences.

‘At the time, and still in many circles today the conventional wisdom is that anti-Zionist and anti-Israel comments are common criticism, which in an open society is acceptable. I approached people for funding the proposed film which elucidates the connection between anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism. Yet both Jewish and non-Jewish funding bodies commented that this view was extreme.

“They would thus not fund this outlook, however much it is based in reality. No one said ‘We won’t fund you because the idea is not interesting, or because we already have a film like this.’

“After the release of Mamadrama I started to work on Beyond Paranoia. I wanted this movie to send the key message that dangerous anti-Semitism is very much alive in the form of anti-Israelism.

“My co-producer Benzion Tidhar and I planned for a film shot on 16 mm film with a full crew. We realized however that money would not be forthcoming, and thus could not afford that budget. Yet I found the way Israel was portrayed in the world increasingly intolerable. Benzion and I decided that we had go ahead with the film at our own expense. It was almost a moral imperative. We sacrificed many things that make daily life a little more comfortable.

“I bought a Professional Video camera. We decided that we would do the production work ourselves, which video cameras allow you to do. Benzion did the sound, and I did camera and direction. Previously on my films, I had always worked as a director and sometimes I had also done some camera work, and as the producer/writer. This would help us as we could keep the costs down. Despite our economies, we have received many compliments on the film’s professionalism.

“The editor and I decided that Beyond Paranoia had to be visually shocking. It includes harsh Holocaust pictures. The music is tense and disturbing, almost like a horror movie soundtrack. This was deliberate, because we wanted to jab viewers out of their complacency,

“The interviewees gave a broad picture of how anti-Semitism developed, what its key motifs are and how these return in anti-Israelism. All people I wanted to interview for the film agreed, with one exception. A Muslim Israeli Arab decided for his own security that he could not be in this documentary. A number of interviewees did not end up in the final cut of the film. That is uncomfortable for me and probably disappointing for them. Yet it is the nature of filmmaking.

“The Israeli premiere was screened in February 2016 at the Jerusalem Cinematheque. We made it as a memorial tribute to the leading anti-Semitism scholar Prof. Robert Wistrich, who suddenly passed away last year. I found him very inspirational in our conversations and he is an important interviewee in the film.

“From the various interviews I learned several important things. The most dramatic was that the similarity in anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism, which I had observed more than ten years ago had increased even further. I also had never before seen clearly the common elements in Christian, Muslim and Nazi anti-Semitism. Nor did I realize the degree to which important elements of Nazism are inherent in the ideology of many Arab countries.

“Many people have told me how courageous I was for making this film. Most disturbingly these reactions underline the constraints on the freedom of expression in contemporary society.”

The French network was broadcasting one of the spontaneous memorial services at the scene of the attack when a woman wearing a hijab was seen on camera removing the flag from among the flags of other countries, crumpling it, and tearing it up. After that, she hid it under one of the solidarity signs left at the square.

DR.MANFRED GERSTENFELD: TEACHING ANTISEMITISM: A CASE STUDY IN HOW JEWS ARE BLAMED FOR THE WORDS OF ONE……

Read my post “JEWS ARE NOT TO BLAME FOR DESTRUCTIVE MULTICULTURALISM, BUT THE FAILED IDEOLOGY OF SOCIALIST STATISM IS…….

There is a trend I’ve been observing by some in the anti-Islamization / mass muslim settler migration movement, towards blaming Jews for the curse of multiculturalism. I address it in the link above. The following article by Dr.Gerstenfeld is a timely addition to help shed light on this growing phenomenon.

NOTE: This is an article by Dr.Gerstenfeld on how to teach antisemitic stereotyping, where a remark by one Jew is picked up by antisemites who hold all Jews responsible.  It was first published in Algemeiner.

TEACHING ANTI-SEMITISM: A CASE STUDY

Manfred Gerstenfeld

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThere is major confusion about the nature and range of anti-Semitism today. Most people recognize anti-Semitism when presented in simple statement form, such as calling someone a dirty Jew. Accusing all Jews of killing Jesus, while anachronistic, also falls into this simple, easily recognizable category of anti-Semitism. Jesus lived 2000 years ago. He was killed by the Roman rulers, the only ones empowered to do so, not by the few Jews supposedly present at his crucifixion.

However, it is much harder to identify the essence of some of the anti-Semitism disseminated through social media, a major channel used for this purpose nowadays. It is important to note examples illustrating this particular form of anti-Semitism, which frequently uses stereotyping as its modus operandi. This may be defined in this context as blaming all Jews for the actions or statements of one or a few Jews.

News items, speeches and articles, frequently taken out of their own context are shared on anti-Semitic social media platforms. This snowballs, drawing a host of inciting and violent talkbacks. One extreme case demonstrates the use of stereotyping in social media-disseminated anti-Semitism in recent years. Barbara Lerner Spectre is an American Jew fairly unknown in Europe outside Sweden. She is a founding director of Paideia, The European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden.

In 2010 Spectre said in a rather minor broadcast: “I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”

Few, if any, European Jewish leaders will share her views, but the relevance of her judgment is not the issue here. Hate promoters picked up the broadcast and shared it en masse, presenting it as proof that Jews intend to take over Europe. Over recent years this broadcast has attracted a barrage of at least fifty, if not many more articles and postings on hate sites and blogs including Stormfront, a large white-supremacist site. Anti-Semitic hate reactions have overwhelmed Google, making it difficult to find any other statements by Spectre using the search engine.

There is a huge need for teaching materials on how to discern anti-Semitism once it goes beyond the direct curse or insult. Stereotyping, double standards, false moral equivalence and the like can only be taught on the basis of case studies, which are both plentiful and easy to find. Recognizing anti-Semitism in all its tactics and strategies is the indispensable first step toward fighting it. Incorporating it into teaching materials is the essential second step.

JEWS ARE NOT TO BLAME FOR DESTRUCTIVE MULTICULTURALISM, BUT THE FAILED IDEOLOGY OF SOCIALIST STATISM IS…….

poster child for the left

After much thought and deliberation, I believe that I have found a comparison -though not perfect, but applicable nonetheless- that can be used in debunking antisemitic memes that hold worldwide Jewry responsible for the current muslim invasion of the West, due to their supposed universal multiculturalism advocacy.

First and foremost, these failed multicultural policies which have unleashed one cataclysmic problem after another upon our Western societies, are a product of Leftist ideology, which crosses all ethnic lines, belief systems and race. It’s not just ”the Jews” who advocate multiculturalism, but also the overwhelming majority of everyone else who clings to the failed ideology of socialist statism.

Taking all this into consideration, I believe that there can be a comparison made between the Swedish speaking minority in Finland, and Jewish organizations and communities scattered throughout Europe and elsewhere in the West.

Swedish speaking Finns, like the Jews of Europe, are a minority, they comprise a mere +250 000 strong demographic within the 5.4 million Finnish population. Though minus a similar history of persecution and mass genocide as the Jews, they are however, as protective as the Jews are in maintaining their cultural identity, and linguistic heritage.

They too are closely identified as being wholehearted supporters of multiculturalism in Finland, and while there may be a few exceptions, most adhere to the tenets of the ideology. Swedish speaking Finns are also highly over represented in the areas of business ownership, banking, the arts and in politics, etc. etc..

The Swedes of Finland have embraced the (failed) ideologically based policies of multiculturalism as a means to somehow secure their future as a linguistically distinct people. Even more so for the Jews for all the obvious reasons, centuries of persecution has conditioned them to seek buffers from hostile forces in their societies any which way they can.

The irrational hatred behind antisemitism will of course keep most Jew haters from mulling any of this over, because it challenges their hatred. This post is not for them. The troubles we have been facing over the past couple of decades however, have all been self-inflicted, by politicians on the Left (statists) and those considered to be on the Right (neo-Statists) who insist on micromanaging society.

It is traditional Leftist ideology to blame, not ethnicities nor race, without which we wouldn’t have to be dealing with “group rights” or “identity driven politics”, all a necessary framework upon which multiculturalism is fitted. We would not have to deal with “political correctness” as well, which acts as a watchdog to keep the populace intimidated and in check. Without big government statism (the welfare state), a throwback to pre-enlightenment days, we would not be having to deal with multiculturalism. At all, period.

The irony here, is that these very same voices who tie today’s problems solely to the Jews, are in fact the very same voices who embrace the very same ideology and system that bequeathed to them what they say they loathe….. multiculturalism.

multiculti doofus

Leftist statism.

Leftism (socialism of all stripes) is a destructive ideology, it’s in fact reactionary, meaning, reactionary to the birth of upstart free market capitalism of the mid 1800’s, which allowed people of little or no means to rise according to their skills, and challenge the status quo. Far from being ”progressive”, Leftist statism is in fact regressive, because it rejects the Enlightenment, therefore, it rejects the civil society. Since Leftist statism rejects the Enlightenment, it therefore rejects the individual and his/her sovereignty, it’s emphasis is the ”masses”, collectivism, it swallows people whole and continually seeks to re-engineer society into an image that it can’t even define.

So my advice to all the Jew haters out there, as to well as others who are as disgusted with multiculturalism as I am,  your first step along the road to recovery, is to reject the over 150 year disastrous reactionary ideology of socialist statism (big government), and embrace individual sovereignty embodied in the enlightenment. Start from there, and sooner than later you’ll stop looking for the Jew behind every rock and tree.
