Manfred Gerstenfeld

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThe battle against the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS) is fought in a wide variety of ways. Yet the most direct argument is underrepresented: BDS activities which exclusively focus on Israel are in and of themselves anti-Semitic.

One only has to read the definition of anti-Semitism by the International Holocaust Remembrance Assembly to understand the anti-Semitic character of BDS.1 It cites specifically: “applying double standards by requiring of Israel a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.” The fact that BDS activities are usually aimed exclusively at Israel expresses such a double standard. The acceptance of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism required the agreement of 31 democratic member countries. These include the United States, Canada and 24 members of the EU.

One inciter against Israel, the Canadian Jewish author Naomi Klein wrote “The best strategy to end the increasingly bloody occupation is for Israel to become the target of the kind of global movement that put an end to apartheid in South Africa.” Klein added, “Why single out Israel when the United States, Britain and other Western countries do the same things in Iraq and Afghanistan?” Her answer was: “Boycott is not a dogma; it is a tactic. The reason the BDS strategy should be tried against Israel is practical: in a country so small and trade-dependent, it could actually work.”2

Klein thus openly asserts that she promotes aggression against Israel in a way different from attacking any other democratic nation. Her statement is a text book example of IHRA-defined anti-Semitism. It singles out Israel for negative treatment in the same way classic anti-Semites apply double standards to Jews.

Dan Diker of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs concluded that the movement’s goals go beyond expressing anti-Semitic attitudes. He states: “BDS is not meant merely to pressure Israel toward a two-state solution. Instead, BDS is being used as a platform to advocate ending Israel’s existence as the nation-state of the Jewish people.”3 This is indeed the goal of part of the BDS promoters.

The list of those promoting BDS against Israel, its suppliers or the settlements is long. In the United States these include organizations, academics, student councils and pension funds. Some examples are the student councils of seven out of ten University of California campuses. These have voted to divest from American companies that supposedly profit from the settlements, such as Caterpillar and Hewlett-Packard. The pension board of the United Methodist Church blacklisted Israel’s five major banks which have branches in the settlements.4 The US Presbyterian Church passed a series of resolutions at its general assembly in support of BDS, and called on Israel to leave the territories.5 In an environment that promotes freedom of speech, these people seem to think that freedom to be anti-Semitic is included.

Over 70 American intellectuals and academics recently published an open letter calling for a “targeted boycott” of all Israeli settlements in the West Bank, as well as of products and services from the settlements.6 The American Studies Association, and the National Women’s Studies Association have voted to boycott Israeli universities.7 Other American academic associations that have joined the boycott include the African Literature Association, the Association for Asian American Studies, the Critical Ethnic Studies Association, the Native American and Indigenous Studies Associations.8

The Jew hating freak show (SOB’s) at the UN actually did it…..

Yid With Lid:

The executive board of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) passed a Palestinian-initiated resolution on Thursday that ignores Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in Jerusalem:

24 UNESCO member states voted in favor of the resolution, 26 abstained, and only six countries voted against.

The proposal, put forth by the Palestinians, along with Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar and Sudan, condemns Israel on several issues related to Jerusalem and its holy sites.


The draft resolution, a copy of which was obtained by Ha’aretz, acknowledges that the city of Jerusalem is holy to Judaism, Islam, and Christianity but says the Temple Mount holy site is sacred only to Muslims and fails to mention its significance to Jews or Christians

In fact, Ha’aretz writes , an entire section of the proposal dedicated specifically to the Temple Mount complex refers only to the site’s Muslim names (Al-Aqsa Mosque and Haram al-Sharif) and fails to mention its Hebrew or English names (Har HaBayit or Temple Mount).

The resolution refers also to the Western Wall plaza by its Muslim name (al-Buraq plaza) and only mentions its Hebrew-Jewish name (Hakotel Hama’aravi) later in quotation marks.

More here. Normal people should just ignore the UN, while demanding that their politicians increase pressure to leave it.


There’s a special type of evil at the UN, and a place in hell for all of its most full throated supporters…..

United Nations: Western Wall not Jewish

UNESCO resolution expected to pass not only denies Temple Mount’s Jewish ties, but also portrays Western Wall as Muslim holy site.

Nitsan Keidar, 13/10/16 08:28

Western Wall

Half a year after the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) accepted an initial resolution denying the Temple Mount’s place in Jewish history and the Jewish faith, the UN body is expected to pass another measure on Thursday portraying the Western Wall as a Muslim holy site.

In a recent UNESCO meeting, Arab states and the Palestinian Authority have pushed a new resolution, explicitly describing the Temple Mount as an exclusively Muslim holy site, referring to the site of both ancient Jewish temples by its Arabic name: Haram a-Sharif.

This time, however, the proposed UNESCO resolution also touches upon the Western Wall that surrounds the Temple Mount. Like the Temple Mount, the Western Wall is also referred to by the Arabic name, with the Hebrew name included in brackets.

Israeli diplomats called the move an attempt to discredit the ancient Jewish connection to the Western Wall in the eyes of the international community.

The resolution does recognize the importance of Jerusalem in general to the three major Abrahamic faiths, but observers noted that this was likely an attempt to make an otherwise transparently anti-Israel measure appear more balanced. The order of faiths mentioned in connection to Jerusalem is Islam, Christianity, and Judaism last.

Israeli diplomats have criticized previous efforts by UNESCO to deny the Jewish ties to historical sites in Jerusalem.

Earlier this week, US lawmakers including Texas Senator Ted Cruz launched a bipartisan effort against the planned UNESCO resolution.

Europe has made its choice, totalitarian mono-culture muslims over assimilating Jews…..

French Jews feel they can give their children a better future in Israel

“French people think that it’s natural when Jews are targeted” in terror attacks, said Haccoun, 33, as she waited with her husband and their three children here at the airport. “The fact that the army must protect Jewish schools and synagogues isn’t normal.”

She said her family watched in horror in July 2014 as a demonstration protesting Israel’s war with Hamas turned into an anti-Semitic rampage. Dozens of young men chanting “God is great” in Arabic and “death to the Jews” attacked Jewish-owned businesses with clubs and fire bombs.

The number of French Jews immigrating to Israel rose from 1,900 in 2011 to nearly 8,000 last year, said Jacques Canet, president of La Victoire, the great synagogue of Paris. He said the country’s 500,000 to 600,000 French Jews — the third largest Jewish population in the world — “feel threatened.”

“Increasingly, Jews in Paris, Marseilles, Toulouse, Sarcelles feel they can’t safely wear a kippah (yarmulke, or skull cap) outside their homes or send their children to public schools, where Muslim children bully Jewish children,” Canet said.

A poll by the French Institute of Public Opinion in January showed 43% of France’s Jewish Community are considering a move to Israel, and 51% said they have “been threatened” because they are Jewish.

Like I have stated before on prior occasions, Islamic canonical Jew hatred has been around for over 1400 years, and in many areas, it dovetails with it’s European/Western variant derived from classic Christian understanding if its ancient texts. That said, Islamic texts make it brutally clear of its enmity with the Jews, which of course predates the rise of Nazi Germany.

What I fear is happening inside Europe, is the supercharging of these classic Christian Europe anti-Jew tropes by already antisemitic Muslim settlers who find a kindred spirit with some on the Left and Right of the socialist aisle. What we are witnessing in an identity politics/group rights /statist (divide & rule) driven Europe, is the choosing of Muslims over that of Jews (and over other discriminated minorities as well) which has led to a staring at the problem through visibly shaking fingers.

Manfred Gerstenfeld and Leah Hagelberg

The libel that Jews are absolute evil is the core accusation of anti-Semitism for close to two thousand years. Since 2014, the Islamic State, the cruelest of the major Muslim terror groups, has started to replace Nazism as the symbol of absolute evil. The genocide by the Germans and their allies is many decades ago, while ISIS murders brutally today. In line with the tradition of anti-Semitism, a wave of accusations associating Israel with ISIS has rapidly sprung up.

This defamation has a number of variations including that Israel has helped to create ISIS, Israel is behind ISIS, Israel is comparable to ISIS, and Israel is the reason for ISIS. The short time during which the image of ISIS has developed in the public domain enables us to follow closely the genesis of a new version of the old core calumny that Israel is absolute evil. Most, but far from the only, promoters of this hate come from the Muslim world, the extreme left and the extreme right.

Some of the earliest propagators of the new hate motif were Iranian. Its Islamic Republic News Agency, published a story accusing America of mounting its offensive against ISIS as a means of destabilizing the region to protect Israel. This story cited a supposed interview with Edward Snowden that a U.S., British, and Israeli plot to destabilize the Middle East, code-named Hornet’s Nest, was the force behind the creation of ISIS.1 Another rumor attributed to Snowden, but which he has claimed is a hoax, is the one that IS leader Al Baghdadi is really a Jewish Mossad Agent named Elliot Shimon or Simon Elliot.2

In June of 2014, shortly before ISIS proclaimed itself a caliphate, Iranian Army Chief of Staff Gen Hassan Firouzabadi stated, “ISIS is Israel’s cover up for distancing the revolutionary forces from Israeli borders and creating a margin of security for the Zionists.”3 Iranian Deputy Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian claimed in November 2014 that Israel helped to create ISIS.4

Another Muslim group to jump on the bandwagon was The World Association for Al-Azhar Graduates, an umbrella organization for scholars connected to Al-Azhar University. It is the leading academic institution of Egypt, a country which is at peace with Israel. In June 2014 this association published a statement on its website claiming that ISIS and other extremist groups were “[a] Jewish product under various names that change every now and then.” The statement also quoted the head of the association’s Pakistani chapter Sheik Sahab Zadeh Aziz, who said, “the terrorist organization ISIS is a Zionist plot which aims to murder Muslims, shed their blood, and rape [their] women and girls.”5

Ayatollah Sayed Mortada Al-Qazwini, a popular Shia cleric in Iraq gave a sermon in summer 2014 declaring ISIS a “Jewish Israeli organization, established to tear apart the land of Muslims.”6 In February 2015 Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir – wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of genocide – referred to ISIS and Boko Haram: “I said CIA and the Mossad stand behind these organizations. There is no Muslim who would carry out such acts.”7 Al Jazeera’s Arabic website, published in August 2015 an article claiming that Israel was behind ISIS.8

Manfred Gerstenfeld

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThe definition of anti-Semitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance in May 2016 mentions, among its various illustrations, several examples of anti-Israeli anti-Semitism. Yet the definition mainly focuses on anti-Semitism against Jews, not Israelis. The more one applies the original IHRA definition, the more one realizes that a special definition for anti-Israeli anti-Semitism is required. The following text may be used as a first draft for organizations or countries who wish to adopt such a definition.

The definition of anti-Israeli anti-Semitism, in line with the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, could read:

“Anti-Israeli anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Israel which may be expressed as hatred toward Israel and Israelis, or discrimination against them. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Israeli anti-Semitism are directed toward Israel or Israeli individuals and or their property, and toward Israeli facilities.

The following examples may serve as illustrations. Manifestations might include targeting the state of Israel in a way that is not aimed at any other country, such as by labeling policies of products from Israel or the disputed territories. However, criticism of Israel, similar to that leveled against any other country, is not anti-Israeli anti-Semitism. Anti-Israeli anti-Semitism frequently charges Israel, Israelis, or Zionists with conspiring to harm humanity and it is often used to blame Israel for why things go wrong in other countries or parts of the world. It is expressed in actions, speech, writing, visual forms, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.

Contemporary examples of anti-Israeli anti-Semitism in public life, media, universities and schools include but are not limited to:

– Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Israelis. This comprises support of anti-Israeli terrorist organizations in any way, including providing them with weapons and finance as well as promoting their legitimacy.

-Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Israelis as such or the power of Israel or what is often called the Israeli Lobby as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Israeli, or Zionist conspiracy or of Israel, Israelis or Zionists controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.

-Accusing Zionists, the state of Israel, or Israelis as a people, of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by individual Israelis or even for acts committed by non-Israelis.

-Accusing Israelis as a people, Zionists, or Israel as a state, of inventing, exaggerating, or abusing the Holocaust.

-Denying Israelis their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel should be abolished, lacks legitimacy, or is a racist endeavor.

-Applying double standards by requiring of Israel a behavior not expected or demanded of any other nation. This includes the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, when it is exclusively targeting Israel. It also includes moral relativism by applying to Israel different moral criteria than to other countries, and in particular its enemies.

-Using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism such as comparisons with the killing of Jesus, the blood libel, and contemporary mutations of it to characterize Israel or Israelis.

– The use of false moral equivalences against Israel or Zionism, including but not only those between Zionism and racism or colonialism/imperialism or fascism, comparison of the Holocaust and the Nakba, considering as equal the targeted killings of terrorists with intentional murder of civilians, and equivalencies drawn between the kidnapping of soldiers and imprisoning terrorists, as well presenting moral equivalence between Israel’s actions as a legitimate sovereign state and the illegitimate actions of terrorists.

-Inversion of the Holocaust, i.e drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy and behavior to that of extreme criminal bodies such as the Nazis as well as comparing Palestinian locations to Holocaust locations, such as Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto or Auschwitz. Additionally, likening Israel or Israelis to others who commit genocide or aim to do so as well as the Islamic State movement, and the South African apartheid regime. This can also be done indirectly, for instance, by claiming that Israel conducts a war of destruction against the Palestinians.

-Holding all Israelis collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel or its government.

– Organizations appointing commissions with biased mandates to investigate alleged-Israeli criminal activities while ignoring the acts of its enemies. Furthermore, the accepting to serve on such biased commissions.

Anti-Israeli acts are criminal when they are defined as so by laws in the specific country. Criminal acts are anti-Israeli anti-Semitism when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property – such as buildings, schools, and places of worship – are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Israeli or linked to Israelis.

Anti-Israeli discrimination is the denial to Israelis of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in a number of countries.

Man shot in attempt to attack Israeli embassy in Ankara

Perpetrator wounded by security forces after rushing at building with a knife; no Israelis injured in incident

September 21, 2016, 1:00 pm
Security forces in Ankara, Turkey, on Wednesday shot and injured a man who was apparently attempting to carry out a terror attack on the Israeli embassy there, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said.
Gunfire was heard at the embassy on Wednesday morning, the Turkish Haber Turk reported. Video footage showed security forces holding a man to the floor.

The Foreign Ministry said no Israelis were injured in the incident.

The attacker attempted to stab a local guard who was part of the embassy’s security detail. The guard fired a warning shot at the ground and then at the man’s legs, according to Foreign Ministry spokesman Emanuel Nahshon.

Labour Whitewashes its Anti-Semitism

by Denis MacEoin
September 15, 2016 at 5:00 am


When the inquiry’s report was published on June 30, it turned out to be what most Jews and pro-Israel activists had suspected it would be from the beginning: a whitewash. It opens with the words: “The Labour Party is not overrun by anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or other forms of racism”. But nobody had ever suggested that it was.

  • The report is vague and waffly, 28 pages saying almost nothing about the subject under question, anti-Semitism, which is throughout subsumed under general issues of racism.
  • The working definitions of anti-Semitism for the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia and the US State Department, along with others, agree that exaggerated, mendacious, or malicious criticism of the Jewish state, or the setting of double standards for Israel that are used for no other nation, is anti-Semitic. It is precisely accusations of this kind that make up the bulk of the Labour Party’s anti-Semitic comments, including statements still being made by some party members, including Jeremy Corbyn himself.

Britain’s Labour Party, out of power since 2010, more or less cut its own throat when its members (plus fresh recruits who, instead of taking out membership, paid £3 to vote in the leadership election in 2015) chose Jeremy Corbyn, a formerly marginalized far left socialist, as the new head of the party. Ordinary Labour voters were horrified, knowing from day one that Corbyn could never lead the party to government and was not either remotely Prime Ministerial material. But vast numbers of young extreme left-wingers, flushed with victory and dedicated to an idealistic coming revolution and led by a new Corbyn-worshipping movement called Momentum, were determined to take traditional working- and middle-class voters in a direction that had little or no appeal to them at all.

From the outset, Labour was split almost down the centre. That divide proved dangerous for the political system in Britain, where government has been unevenly but broadly shared between the Tory and Labour parties in what was effectively a two-party arrangement. With the almost total collapse of the centrist Liberal Democrats, who had just been in an ill-judged coalition with the Tories in government from 2010 to 2014, Britain faced the possibility that the two-party system would founder after many decades, should Labour split and leave the country with three unbalanced parties and the real threat of a one-party state emerging, so long as neither Labour group remained unelectable.

The international community assembled in the freak show known as the UN, has it in for the lone star state of the Jews. 


Elsewhere around the globe they treat comparable conflicts/situations differently to that of the one Israel finds itself in, solely because they’re Jews and that the Arabs have oil. It’s classic Jew hatred dressed up as (hypocritical) criticism, and the bought off sec-gen knows his place and who to hurl invective at.


A Palestinian State Free of Jews?

A legal view into Netanyahu’s ‘ethnic cleansing’ speech

By Eugene Kontorovich|September 15, 2016 5:07 PM

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provoked an storm of diplomatic disapproval last week, when he pointed out that  “the Palestinian Authority actually demands a Palestinian state with one precondition: no Jews.” The Obama Administration responded that it is “inappropriate” to speak of demands for a removal of settlers in such terms. Removing the settlers, Netanyahu’s critics say, is natural and appropriate: their presence in a Palestinian state would cause tension and problems, and in any case, they should not have been there in the first place.

While it is not surprising that the head of the U.N. was unhappy with Netanyahu’s remarks , the head of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, also joined in . But neither actually addressed the central issue that Netanyahu raised: why it is legitimate for the Palestinians to ask for a Jew-free state?

When pressed, defenders of the Palestinian position characterize the demand as no settlers rather than the uglier-sounding no Jews. The claim is hard to take at face value, as the Palestinians have never objected to Israeli Arabs settling across the Green Line, as they have in significant numbers. But, granting its sincerity, what does international law say about the demand to remove settlers as part of a solution to a territorial conflict? To answer this question, as part of a larger research study on settlements, I examined the fate of settlers in every occupation since the adoption of the Geneva Conventions —eight major situations in total. The results highlight how extraordinary the Palestinian demand is.

There is simply no support in international practice for the expulsion of settlers from occupied territories. In the many situations involving settlers around the world, the international community has never supported expulsion, and consistently backed plans allowing the settlers to remain in a new state.

Settlement activity is the rule rather than the exception in situations of belligerent occupation around the world. In places like Western Sahara and northern Cyprus, the settlers now make up a majority of the population. In most other places, they account for a much higher percentage of the territory’s population than Jews would in a potential Palestinian state. In all these cases, the arrival of the settlers was accompanied with the familiar claims of seizure of land and property, and serious human rights abuses. Unlike the Israeli situation, it was also accompanied with a large-scale expulsion of the prior inhabitants from the territory.

In internationally-brokered efforts to resolve these conflicts, the question of the fate of the settlers naturally arose. The answer, across all these very different situations, has always been the same: the settlers stay. Indeed, the only point of dispute has typically been what proportion of settlers receive automatic citizenship in any newly-created state and what proportion merely gets residence status. Thus, when East Timor, for example, received independence in an internationally-approved process, none of the Indonesian settlers were required to leave. The current U.N.-mediated peace plans for Western Sahara and Cyprus not only presuppose the demographically dominant settler population can remain, it gives them a right to vote in referenda on potential deal.

This is not because these settlers are beloved by the surrounding population. The opposite is true. In the Paris peace talks to end the Vietnamese occupation of Cambodia, representatives of the latter tried to raise the possibility of expelling the nearly million Vietnamese settlers. Their arguments were familiar: the settlers remind them of the occupation, rekindle ancient hatreds, and destabilize the peace. Yet the Cambodian demands for the mass removal of ethnic Vietnamese was rejected outright by diplomats: One simply cannot ask for such things.

Posting of some 12,000 soldiers at Jewish neighborhoods has had a ‘discouraging effect’ on potential attackers, anti-racism czar says

September 15, 2016,

Anti-Semitic incidents in France have decreased by 64 percent in the first half of 2016 compared to a year ago, according to a French official who credited his government’s policing around Jewish institutions.

Gilles Clavreul, France’s interministerial delegate for the fight against racism and anti-Semitism, said this week that the drop began in June 2015 and continued into the first seven months of this year over the corresponding period of 2015.

NOTE: They should be able to arm themselves, after a number of Muslims who tried to attack them are shot dead, that will send a message just as well, even more so.

The Anti-Semitic Slurs of George Galloway

Manfred Gerstenfeld and Leah Hagelberg

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThe adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism in May 2016 has many important aspects.1 These include that it greatly simplifies the teaching of anti-Semitism. One way to do this is through case studies of people who make anti-Semitic slurs. One such IHRA-definition based analysis has already been published about Lady Tonge, a former Liberal MP and now an independent member of the House of Lords.2

A second natural candidate in the U.K for such an analysis, is the former parliamentarian George Galloway. He represented Labour in two Glasgow constituencies from 1987 until 2005. In 2003 the party expelled him. In 2004 the Respect party was founded of which he became the leader. He was elected on behalf of Respect as an MP in Bethnal Green and Bow in 2005 and as an MP in 2012 for Bradford West.

The IHRA definition document includes as an example of anti-Semitism the making of demonizing allegations concerning the myth of a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institution. Galloway makes such accusations frequently. In a 2008 broadcast by Al Jazeera of an address he gave in Amman he said: “There is a conspiracy in this region all right – but it’s an American-Israeli conspiracy.”3

International Jew hatred of the lone Jewish state……


Anti-Semitism, Brought to You by the United Nations

by ANNE BAYEFSKY September 7, 2016 4:00 AM @ANNEBAYEFSKY

The U.N. gives a platform to many NGOs that actively encourage violence against Jews and the destruction of Israel.

The United Nations was founded as a global pact among states, but over the decades in the name of transparency and to further the aim of globalization, it has opened its doors to more than 6,150 non-governmental organizations (NGOs). While governments wring their hands over incitement to terror and dangerous uses of social media, they ignore the alarming focal point within arms’ reach: the United Nations. An examination of U.N. NGOs reveals that the U.N. has handed a global megaphone to groups spreading hatred and inciting terror from the world stage. In short, the so-called representatives of “civil society” aren’t so civil after all.

In theory, the U.N. has processes for accreditation that share a common requirement: respect for the purposes and principles of the organization. In order to qualify for accreditation, NGOs must operate in conformity with, or promote, the U.N Charter. They must affirm “faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.”

In practice, NGOs have been welcomed into the world of international diplomacy and have gained access to international media platforms while they are simultaneously betraying the core U.N mission by advocating terror and intolerance.

Most striking for an organization founded on the ashes of the Holocaust, the U.N. has accredited NGOs that play a central role in promoting modern anti-Semitism and encouraging the destruction of the Jewish state.

The benefits of U.N. accreditation for NGOs are tangible and significant: the ability to sponsor speakers, mount exhibits, and screen films in the same U.N. facilities that house an international press corps; the right to speak at U.N. meetings and have their words translated and broadcast via U.N. webcasts worldwide; the capacity to publish written statements and have them disseminated by the U.N.; the opportunity to attend negotiating sessions and to influence the world’s diplomats. U.N. websites even link directly to selected NGO websites, greatly enhancing their traffic and messaging.

Manfred Gerstenfeld

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldThe acceptance of a working definition of anti-Semitism by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) in May 2016 was a major event in exposing this ancient hatred. In order to be accepted, the IHRA required the agreement of the 31 member states of the organization, among which 24 are members of the EU. One can now analyze statements and publications of a person or organization for anti-Semitism by comparing them to the definition and the examples of anti-Semitism mentioned in the IHRA document.1

One can apply this definition for instance to the frequent anti-Semitic slurs by Lady Jenny Tonge. Tonge is an independent member of the UK House of Lords and was previously an MP of the Liberal Party. Over the years, she has accused the Israel Lobby of conspiracies,2 Israel of being responsible for suicide bombings in Iraq,3 as well as the treatment of Palestinians by Israel as “the root cause of terrorism worldwide.”4 Tonge has also said that “Israel is not going to be there forever.”5 Other statements she has made include that the Jews should be “ashamed of themselves” for not stopping Israel.6 All of these are anti-Semitic slurs which are included in the examples of anti-Semitism accompanying the IHRA definition.

Yet, when analyzing Tonge’s statements, one realizes that the definition of anti-Semitism, like any other definition, has its limits. This has two major aspects. The first one is that the definition cannot list all examples of anti-Semitism. For instance, the definition says that it is anti-Semitic to draw “comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.” It does not, however, mention comparing Israel to ISIS. This Islamic terror organization is currently a model for absolute evil.

Jeremy Corbyn, the extreme left leader of the British Labour Party, has indirectly made such a comparison during the official presentation of the Chakrabarti Report on Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and Racism in the Labour Party.7 It is not clear that Corbyn’s remark meets the definition of anti-Semitism. Yet former UK Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks rightly called Corbyn’s statement, “demonization of the highest order.”8

The second aspect outside the IHRA definition concerns a large number of other acts and other statements on its periphery. For instance, Lady Tonge brought the Palestinian Muslim cleric, Raed Saleh, to the British Parliament. He has propagated the libel that Jews use the blood of non-Jews to bake their Shabbat bread.9

Merkel party politician: Green Party minister ignored anti-Semitism at university

Berlin- A leading state politician from the Christian Democratic Union, the party of Chancellor Angela Merkel, slammed a Green Party minister in the state of Lower Saxony for failing to rope in an allegedly anti-Semitic seminar at HAWK University.

The German DPA wire service reported on Monday that Jörg Hillmer, deputy representative of the CDU in the Lower Saxony parliament, is investigating allegations that HAWK offered a seminar propagating modern Jew-hatred in targeting Israel for at least 10 years.

According to a statement on Thursday, Hillmer said that “an expert a year ago already determined that a seminar at HAWK conveyed a deeply anti-Israel – and in parts anti-Semitic – world view.” He asked: “How can the minister tolerate this when she says at the same time there is no place for anti-Semitism at our universities?” He was referring to Dr. Gabriele Heinen- Kljajic, the Green Party minister responsible for science and culture in Lower Saxony.

HAWK is the German-language abbreviation for University of Applied Sciences and Arts, which is located Hildesheim, Lower Saxony. The seminar taught students that Israel was a “dehumanized“ society and an apartheid state, and that Israeli soldiers harvested Palestinian body organs.

Petty Arab apartheid, Olympic-style

In the bad old days of South Africa, “petty apartheid” was the term used for the daily oppression and humiliation of blacks through separate public water fountains, bathrooms, buses, cafeterias and similar facilities. This strictly enforced separation was a sign of the black population being viewed as subhuman.

Since 1948, petty apartheid has also been a feature of the widespread Arab rejection of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. This practice is ongoing and is often taken for granted and ignored, as was the case of South Africa for many years.

For example, on Friday, just before the opening of the Rio Olympics, the bus provided by the International Olympic Committee picked up the 10-member Lebanese team and then went to pick up the Israeli team. The Lebanese blocked the Israelis from entering the bus, and according to media accounts team captain Salim al-Haj Nakoula “demanded that the door be closed on the Israeli team, but they ‘insisted on getting on.’” Haj Nakoula continued: “I then stood at the door of the bus to prevent the Israel team from entering and some of them tried to go in and pick a fight.”

She’s no lady, she’s a Jew hater…..

Here is Dr.Gerstenfeld’s latest article on Jenny Tonge, which was published by Israel National News (and reposted here with the author’s consent). Its importance is obviously that we have now a model of how one can lay an anti-Semitic text next to the IHRA definition in order to substantiate why people are anti-Semites.

NOTE: Tonge is pictured here, next to her Norwegian Jew hating colleague, Mads Gilbert, how fitting, a pair of bookends to a shelf full of antisemitism.

Lady Jenny Tonge – A Leading British Anti-Semitic Inciter

Manfred Gerstenfeld

Dr.Manfred GerstenfeldMuch attention has recently been given to the incitement against Israel and the Jews by elected officials of the British Labour Party.1 Yet, probably, the main anti-Israeli hate monger in the British Parliament is Lady Jenny Tonge. This former Liberal parliamentarian is nowadays an independent member of the House of Lords. Her so-far latest anti-Semitic remark in the House of Lords is “The treatment of the Palestinians by Israel is a major cause of the rise of extreme Islamism and Daesh [ISIS].”2

A few months ago the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) has accepted a definition of anti-Semitism. This required the agreement of the 31 member countries of the IHRA, among which is the UK.3 The definition has greatly facilitated identifying this and other statements of Tonge as anti-Semitic.

Tonge said in 2004 that if she were Palestinian, she would consider becoming a suicide bomber.4 This fits an example of anti-Semitism from the definition – “calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.”

The IHRA definition includes among other examples of anti-Semitism, “making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective.” Tonge did so when in 2006, while still a Liberal MP, she alleged that the “pro-Israeli Lobby has grips on the Western World, its financial grips. I think they’ve got a certain grip on our party.”5 – as well as other similar remarks in 2012 about the power of the pro-Israel lobby in the UK and US.6

  • Labour anti-Semitism row intensifies after comments by two MPs
  • Communities spokesman Grahame Morris wants British Jews who serve in the Israeli defence force to be treated as suspected terrorists
  • Justice spokesman Richard Burgon said Zionism was ‘enemy of peace’ 

The row over Labour anti-Semitism intensified last night as it emerged that friends of Jeremy Corbyn and Shadow Cabinet members have compared Israel to Islamic State terrorists.

Communities spokesman Grahame Morris wants British Jews who serve in the Israeli defence force to be treated as suspected terrorists.

And justice spokesman Richard Burgon has urged MPs and party members to quit the Labour Friends of Israel group, declaring: ‘Zionism is the enemy of peace.’

The revelations follow the row over a peerage for Shami Chakrabarti, who produced a report concluding that the party ‘is not overrun by anti-Semitism’.

Mr Corbyn was himself accused of comparing Israel to ISIS when launching the inquiry into anti-Semitism, overshadowing the event and its contents.

Easington MP Mr Morris – chairman of Labour Friends of Palestine – was condemned for posting a picture of Israeli flags online with the words: ‘Nazis in my village, do you see the flag they fly.’ He later apologised.

He also drew controversy in 2014 for urging David Cameron to treat British Jews returning from military service with the Israeli defence force as IS-style terrorists.

A German university is ditching an upcoming seminar that claims Israel harvests the organs of dead Palestinians after local Jewish groups and faculty member accused the institution of promoting anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli content.

The University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HAWK) in the northern city of Hildesheim said Friday it is redesigning its teaching on the Middle East conflict and social work in the coming academic year.

The university on Friday announced the seminar “on the social situation of young people in Palestine” would be cancelled and replaced with a more general module on Middle East conflicts.

Earlier this week, the university defended the seminar, saying the course material “only serve[d] as reading materials and are used to train students in critical discourse,” but did not reflect its political views.

But after Germany’s Central Council of Jews, the Simon Wiesenthal Center and a faculty member voiced concern over the course’s anti-Semitic and anti-Israel content, HAWK decided to pull the seminar from the upcoming 2016-2017 semester.
