ANTISEMITISM





"From Buenos Aires to Baghdad, from the days of Rome to the present, the world talks about Jews and their special relationship to wealth ... The really peculiar part of these slogans about Jews and money ... is the equivocation with which Jews react to the charges ... Proud of their financial achievements, American Jews often congratulate themselves and their success, but when a non-Jew points to the same Jewish affluence, American Jews become extremely nervous and suspect lurking anti-Semitism."
Joshua Halberstam, Schmoozing: The Private Conversations of American Jews, 1997, p. 10]



"Writing about money and Jews is inflammatory no matter how cautious it is handled. As I examined the available literature on the subject it became clear to me that in recent years no one had scrutinized the scope of contemporary Jewish economic activity in America. The reason for this neglect was not hard to find: ... the subject of Jews and money was best not discussed for fear of raising the anti-Semitic ghost again."
Gerald Krefetz

Jews and Money, 1982, p. ix, x]

"San Francisco provides an example of how some Jews can totally ignore reality. Polls taken among contributors to the San Francisco Jewish Community Federation have found that one-third believe that a Jew cannot be elected to Congress from San Francisco. A poll reported such results in 1985 when all three members of Congress from contiguous districts in or adjacent to the city were Jewish as were two state senators, the mayor and a considerable part of the city council."
Seymour Lipset,
American Pluralism and the Jewish Community, 1990,
p. 156


"For many of us Jews lately, everything and anything is 'remindful of the Holocaust.' The truth is that anti-Semitism has become an obsession with us ... In the American Jewish community we've got anti-Semitism without anti-Semites ... [The biblical Jews] understood Gentile hostility to us to be an expression of God's displeasure with us as a community. We [Jews today] understand it to be essentially meaningless ... They believed in collective responsibility ... We modern Jews have completely lost the consciousness of collective responsibility ... Our fear of Gentiles who don't like us, our made-up, manufactured fear, is the greatest comfort we can give ourselves. The impulse to see anti-Semitism where it isn't is so powerful it infects Jewish culture at every level, among religious and secular Jews alike ... If God, the true God, were to put us on the couch, I think that ... he would tell us there is no such thing as anti-Semitism, at least not the way we understand it. We American Jews aren't suffering at all right now. For us, life couldn't be better ... In the book of Leviticus, God explains to the Jews the ways he will reward us if we guard His commandments and punish us if we do not. All of us together. Among the punishments there is an interesting line that describes the condition of modern Jews perfectly: 'the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as one flees from the sword; and they shall flee when none pursues.'"
David Klinghoffer,
Anti-Semitism without Anti-Semites, First Things: A Monthly Journal of Religion and Public Life, April 1998, p. 10-13.


"The assumption of an eternal anti-Semitism ... has been adapted by a great many unbiased historians and by an even greater number of Jews. It is this odd coincidence which makes the theory so very dangerous and confusing. Its escapist basis is in both instances the same: just as anti-Semites understandably desire to escape responsibility for their deeds, so Jews, attacked and on the defensive, even more understandably, do not wish to under any circumstances discuss their share of responsibility."
Hannah Arendt,
The Origins of Totalitarianism, 1964, p. 73



"Has my obsessive long-term encounter with Israeli socity over the past six years turned me into the anti-Semite I never was? I find myself sharply intolerant of the noisy, brash behavior of most Israeli children. I coin terms of description that are even explicitly judgmental. I get exasperated with the perennial references in the [Hebrew] media to the Jewishness of well-known public figures abroad."

Cuban-American scholar. People as Subject, People as Object: Selfhood and Peoplehood in Contemporary Israel. University of Wisconsin Press, 1985



"Self-hatred, in fact, is a word often used to describe a common phenomena -- Jewish anti-Semitism ... The Jew believes all the epithets that the anti-Semite throws at him, even the ones that contradict each other. He believes that Jews are clannish and pushy, miserly and ostentatious, vulgar and excessively intellectual ... In his attitudes towards anti-Semitism, the self-hating Jew is especially confused. The subject is on his mind constantly. He is far more sensitive to so-called 'Jewish traits' than most gentiles are ... [YAFFE, J., p. 70, 72] ... So why not recognize the truth? Hardly any Jews are entirely free from the effects of this disease [of Jewish self-hatred/anti-Semitism]. In AJC's Baltimore survey [the American Jewish Committee's study of the Jews of Baltimore in 1962], two-thirds of the respondents admitted to believing that other Jews are pushy, hostile, vulgar, materialistic, and the cause of anti-Semitism. And those were only the ones who were willing to admit it."

"Among most anti-Semites, we found that their irrational hatred was the expression of primary process thinking, that is, thought that is driven by feeling and not subjected to the discipline of reason, logic, and reality testing."
Mortimer Ostrow,
Jewish psychoanalyst,
Psychodynamics and Anti-Semitism, Transaction Publishers, NY, 1996


"Wherever the Jews settled [in their Diaspora] one observes the development of anti-Semitism, or rather anti-Judaism ... If this hostility, this repugnance had been shown towards the Jews at one time or in one country only, it would be easy to account for the local cause of this sentiment. But this race has been the object of hatred with all nations amidst whom it settled. Inasmuch as the enemies of Jews belonged to diverse races, as they dwelled far apart from one another, were ruled by different laws and governed by opposite principles; as they had not the same customs and differed in spirit from one another, so that they could not possibly judge alike of any subject, it must needs be that the general causes of anti-Semitism have always resided in [the people of] Israel itself, and not in those who antagonized it."

French Jewish author and later Zionist, written at the turn of the 20th century,

"[Jewish psychologist Jules] Nydes argues that such individuals
[representing the "paranoid masochistic character"] tend to see themselves and
groups within which they identify as victims who are
being persecuted. This sense of persecution derives partly from
unconscious feelings of guilt. The paranoid masochistic person engages in
aggression against others because he or she expects to be
attacked. His aggression, which is accompanied by feelings
of self-
righteousness, is rarely satisfying. Indeed, he can often
achieve gratification only when he is punished, and the punishment is
interpreted as confirming his preconceived sense of persecution ...
The typology is suggestive. [Jewish psychoanalyst]
Theodore Reik, who was Nyde's teacher, suggested that a 'paranoid
masochistic' personality structure is modal among Jews."

"Not only does anything Jews do or refrain from doing have nothing to do with anti-Semitism, but any attempt to explain anti-Semitism by referring to the Jewish contribution to anti-Semitism is itself an instance of anti-Semitism! ... This reductio ad

absurdum has stunning implications. It means that Jews have not been causal agents in their own history ... They did not act and interact causally and historically with other groups in history. Morally blameless, the Jews ... were outside of history, aspiring to ... 'angelism.'"

"The role of anti-Semitism in formulations of Zionism and in the importance attributed to the existence of the Jewish state has not
diminished. What has changed is the benign image held by Israeli
leaders of the Gentile. It is no longer the Jew who is indirectly to blame for being hated. Anti-Semitism is no longer the expected hostility of the hosts toward their uninvited guests. As in the
traditional Jewish past, anti-Semitism is now attributed to the
Gentile's irrational hatred of the Jew ... The origins of anti-Semitism
are no longer explained in terms of Jewish estrangement from their
host societies, but as endemic to the non-Jew." Charles Liebman/

"Yom Kippur is a veritable festival of self-criticism and Jewish prophetic and rabbinic literature is filled with admonitions for Jews
to look inward and become aware of their alleged faults and limitations.
All of the great disasters of Jewish history were traditionally explained
by the prophets and rabbis not as a result of the power of anti-Semites, but as a result of the sins of the Jews. Carried to extremes, this tradition of Jewish self-criticism is easily transformed into a tradition of Jewish anti-Semitism."

"I think the strongest anti-Semitism sometimes exists among Jews. To this day a German Jew often hates Russian or Polish Jews.There are German-Jewish clubs around this country that did not allow Russian or Polish Jews when they first started. Some have relented a little, but not all. I'm sure that when Hitler started, many German Jews didn't mind what he did to other Jews. They didn't expect him to turn on them. Isn't it ridiculous? But if anti-Semitism can exist among Jews, why shouldn't it exist among others?"
--Kirk Douglas (né Issur Danielovitch, son of Russian-Jewish immigrants) as quoted in The Ragman's Son. An Autobiography, Pocket Books: New York, 1989, p.23

A Partial list of Famous People in History Accused of Antisemitism

Antisemites Without Antisemitism, by Jonathan Rosenblum.
Jerusalem Letter. July 20, 1998
"When otherwise sane and intelligent people affirm nonsense, it behooves us to inquire into the reason. Falling into that category is the recent finding by the American Jewish Committee that American Jews believe antisemitism is a greater threat than intermarriage by a margin of 57% to 38%. In order to reach that conclusion, American Jews have to ignore the evidence in front of their eyes to a startling degree. And they do. In a 1985 survey of Jews in Northern California, for instance, a full third expressed the belief that non-Jews would not vote for a Jewish candidate for Congress, At that time, all three Congressmen from the area were Jewish ... Antisemitism persists in the minds of Jews even in the absence of antisemites ... The professed fear of resurgent antisemitism goes hand in hand with the elevation of the Holocaust as the defining element in Jewish self-identity. All surveys of American Jewry place the Holocaust way ahead of any other factor in Jewish self-identity. Between 75%and 85% of American Jews rate the Holocaust as a very important factor in their sense of themselves as Jews, far higher than belief in God, Torah or Israel. When they think of themselves as Jews, then, American Jews overwhelmingly identify themselves as victims ...But if American Jews are, in their heart of hearts, not really that scared of resurgent antisemitism, why do they insist on keeping the specter of antisemitism alive? Why do they react so strongly to every crackpot Holocaust denier who would deny them their status as history’s champion victims? The answer is that antisemitism is a convenient balm for the pangs of conscience. Antisemites, even imagined ones, provide confirmation that one is a proud, loyal Jew, linked to all those other Jews throughout history who knew too well what real Jew-hatred was. To paraphrase Descartes: I am hated, therefore I am."

The Outsiders Who Dreamt Up America.
Sunday Times
[London], May 31, 1998
"It's a delicate subject. Mention the relationship between Hollywood and Jews and you can land in some very hot water. Journalist William Cash discovered this in 1991 when he wrote an article for The Spectator about the increasing influence of Jews on the American entertainment industry. More than a dozen movie luminaries - including Charlton Heston, Barbra Streisand and Steven Spielberg - sent an impassioned letter of complaint to the magazine, chastising Cash as a latter-day Nazi and complaining about the trite and vulgar Jewish stereotypes in which he had couched his argument. Yet the thrust of his piece was accurate. The movie industry in the US has always been controlled by Jewish men and women in a town that was created by Jewish immigrants, Hollywood ... All of Hollywood's major studios, including Warner Brothers, Paramount, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Columbia, were created by a small band of Eastern European Jewish immigrants."

Novelist's Letter Prompts Fears of Anti-Semitism.
Jewish News of Greater Phoenix
, 10-16-98
"Edward Topol's novels have been read by audiences all over the world. Now a letter that the Russian Jewish emigre has published in a newspaper here has outraged Russian Jews. The full-page letter, which was printed last month in the Moscow weekly Argumenty i Fakty, called on Russian Jewish bankers not to throw Russia into a 'chaos of poverty and wars.' Topol, who emigrated to the United States 20 years ago and now lives in New York, also urged Jewish tycoons to 'chip in a billion or two' to help Russia's economy. The weekly's popularity - it has a print run of more than 3 million copies and is especially popular in Russia's provinces - has prompted worries about how the letter will be interpreted by the paper's readers. Many Jews said the letter implied that a Jewish conspiracy exists in Russia, and they are worried that it could therefore trigger an outbreak of anti-Semitism ... In the letter, Topol implied that a small group of Jewish business magnates exert an enormous control over the Kremlin. The 59-year-old author also claimed that the Jewish prominence in Russia could lead to Jewish pogroms and even to a new Holocaust. One Jewish leader said he did not expect a Jewish author to write such a letter."

Russian Jews Say Solzhenitsyn Writes Bad History in New Book.
JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency), July 23, 2001
"Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn is being accused of distorting the history of Russian Jewry in his new book on Russian-Jewish relations. In the introduction to '200 Years Together,' a 500-page treatise, the famed novelist says he is 'appealing to both sides, Russian and Jewish, to come to patient understanding and to acknowledge their own share of blame.' But the controversial author takes a position on the tsarist-era pogroms at odds with most historians. Solzhenitsyn, 83, blames the pogroms on a grass-roots movement, exculpating the Russian state from any responsibility in the anti-Jewish attacks. He also blames the "'liberal intelligentsia' — often a code word for Jews — for exaggerating the extent of the pogroms. That does not go over well in a community that suffered the pogroms' fury. 'Solzhenitsyn's book is anti-Semitic and mendacious. It is deliberately distorting the history of Russian Jews,' Victor Dashevsky, a Jewish historian who heads the Moscow Anti-Fascist Center, told JTA."

Jewish Teen in Southern California Arrested in Cross-Burning Incident
.
Jewish Bulletin of Northern California. June 5, 1998
"A 15-year old Jewish boy has been arrested in connection with a cross-burning on his parents' lawn ... He, two other juveniles, and an 18-year old man burned the cross last month because his parents wouldn't let him stay at a beach bonfire two hours past his usual 10 P.M. curfew ... The Jewish boy also used chemicals to burn a swastika into his home's lawn."

The Rainbow Swastika. A long essay, originally posted at the Jewish Student Union at the University of Colorado, that argues that the entirety of the "New Age" movement (from Buckminster Fuller to the Maharishi Yogi) is anti-Semitic, seeking to destroy Jews and Judaism.
" Most of the network umbrella groups have some connection with Planetary Initiative for the World We Choose, run by a 'World Council of Wise Persons' and/or a "Coordinating Council" [not known if they are the same]. This group publicizes dates of its meetings at the UN, and is not shy about publicizing names of past and present 'Wise Persons': Buckminster Fuller, Norman Cousins, Dr. Carlos Romulo, Brooke Newell (once VP of Chase Manhattan Bank), Gerhard Elston (ex-director of Amnesty International), Helen Kramer (Int'l Assoc. of Machinists), Robert Muller (Chancellor, UN University for Peace), Donald Keys (of Planetary Citizens). 2. Philosophical and/or religious societies [they define themselves as philosophical or educational to avoid legal complications with US constitutional law, but they are religious in nature] which were founded by New Age figures in obedience to spirit-guides, and which teach occult enlightenment through spirit-guides: Arcane School, Seven Rays Institute, Anthroposophy, Waldorf schools, Theosophical Society, Transcendental Meditation, 'A Course in Miracles' (interfaith study group), New Thought courses, Silva Mind Control, New Acropolis, Scientology, to name a few. [Ironically, many of these groups, even those with decidedly racist teachings, have found a ready following in Israel, of all places. See relevant entries in the Missionizing section.] 3. Prominent individuals who publicly laud(ed) the New World Order described by Bailey include world-class figures (some of whom have since passed away): Willie Brant (German ex-chancellor), Prof. J. Tinbergen (Nobel Prize winner), George Bush (ex-U.S. president), Robert Kennedy (veteran U.S. Senator, former Attorney General), Margaret Mead (anthropologist), Carl Rogers (psychotherapist), Eric Fromm (psychologist), Barbara Marx Hubbard (Democratic nominee for VP in 1984), Robert Muller (former Asst. UN Secretary General), U Thant (Muller's UN boss and mentor), Donald Keys (founder of Planetary Initiative and pivotal UN figure), Aurelio Peccei (founder of the Club of Rome), Isaac Asimov (scientist and sci-fi writer), Alvin Toffler (author of 'Future Shock'), George Christie (founder of Intelsat Consortium of 106 countries), pop singers John Denver and Judy Collins, historians William Irwin Thompson and Theodore Roszak, actress Shirley MacLaine, psychic Edgar Cayce. [Actually, the list is getting so long it would be easier to list those who actively oppose NA goals.] 4. Aggressive promotion of the New Age agenda, besides through the above organizations, is going on through the following more general groups and activities: Montessori, Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Zero Population Growth, Planned Parenthood, Hunger Project, Voluntary Simplicity, Bread for the World, most disarmament groups, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Club of Rome, Skull and Bones (Yale fraternity), the International Legal Commission (UN consultant), UNESCO (key UN agency), World Council of Churches (ecumenical Christian), Unitarian churches, Bahai and Sufi sects (Moslem), The Door (NYC medical facility), many interfaith dialog projects, most health food stores, the entertainment industry. [Note: many well-meaning people participate in these, simply from a desire to further international understanding or make the world a better place. For the innocent souls who have not learned what "planetary initiation" and "global cleansing action" mean to New Agers, a rude awakening is coming, especially if they are Jewish.]"

Anti-Semitism in Israel. Ahavat Israel [Undated]
"Many of the images of haredim [ultra-Orthodox Jews] found in the [Israeli] secular press are drawn from classical anti-Semitic sources, including the Nazis."

The Enemy Within. Freeman Center for Strategic Studies.
"Professor Louis Rene Beres describes how the Israeli Left in a fit of self-loathing has picked up the chant of Hitler's hate mongers against the ... religious Jews, the Hareidim... This list was collected by Arie Stav, the distinguished editor of NATIV magazine in Israel and are direct quotations ... :: [The Haredim are] 'Black ants.' 'Dogs tied up in the back yard, barking psalms all night.' 'Humming locusts.' 'Forces of darkness of our age.' 'A deadly plague.' 'Forces of darkness and kidnappers of Souls.' 'Vulgar baboons.' 'Barbarians, the Black Front...representing the magical, bewitched and most primitive...whose schools are colleges of darkness.' 'The darkest and most horrible phenomena (sic) of our age.' (by a senior Israeli diplomat serving in the United States) From two different Members of Knesset: 'Leeches, snakes, suckled on the same evil urges as Nazism, greedy and domineering, evil and primitive, corrupt, parasites, ambitious.' 'A horrible evil, a black devil.' Finally, Arie Stav quotes one of Israel's best-known writers: 'A band of armed gangsters, committing crimes against humanity, sadists, pogromchiks and murderers.' Stav quotes even worse examples of statements and caricatures that are actually blood libel by the self-styled 'intellectual elite of the Israeli Left. They are authors, members of Knesset, senior journalists, diplomats and professors ... Beres raises the question: These people whose level of hatred for the Jewishness of our people causes them to reject their own past, are they really Jewish? Perhaps the answer lies in a contaminated blood line. When Moses left Egypt, the dregs of Egyptian low-life took this opportunity to escape their low existence and joined the Hebrews' Exodus ... I believe that today, within Israel and the Jewish Diaspora, this strain of genetic evil remains."

[Michnik is the editor of a prominent Polish newspaper. Wieseltier is editor The New Republic. Both men are of Jewish heritage.]
Michnik: "I wrote that there is no Polish family that was not wounded by the war. You call it 'the usual Polish apologetics' ... I am sorry, Leon, that you have written as though you are still in the comfortable grip of Jewish stereotypes. Such a dialogue requires a review of stereotypes. You have to assume that there may be certain aspects of the Polish-Jewish relationship that you do not know, and that perhaps, therefore, you may not be able to fully understand."
Wieseltier: "No, I insist upon the onesidedness of this reckoning because of my general understanding of prejudice and oppression. If you wish to understand anti-Semitism, do not study Jews. Study non-Jews, because the fantasies and the atrocities are theirs. If you wish to understand racism, do not study blacks. Study whites, for the same reason. The notion that in some significant sense there are two sides to such questions, that prejudice has a basis in reality and oppression has a cause in the behavior of the oppressed, is itself a concession to the injustice that we both despise."

Yitro. My Trip to Prague. MilknHoney. Torah Discussions

"My personal brushes with anti-Semitism were in the city of Prague ... I read a little about the Charles bridge before we visited this central tourist site. I had read about the quaint vendors selling memorabilia and art work. We passed pictures of Kafka, earrings, paintings, [sic] Sickening some stupid Christian site where Goyim place
their hands, statues of Jesus dying on the cross waiting to be consumed by vulchers [sic]. When I saw those statues of Jesus I felt like lobbing up a big green glob of spit. I personally refrained from doing this, However, legend has it that another Jew more pious than myself did just that. Some sick pre-Nazi Christian saw him do this. The 'kind' king gave the Jews an opportunity to avoid massacre. He forced the Jewish community to affix pure gold lettering which stated Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh, YKVH Tzevaot, Yeshu Hu Elokim.' 'Holy, Holy, Holy, Hashem Lord of host ... Jesus is the one G-d.' The Holy man who had lobbed up the spit subsequently committed suicide."

Black Newsman Says [Joseph] Lieberman Chosen to Till Coffers. Washington Times, August 17, 2000
"The owner of one of the nation's oldest black newspapers charged yesterday that the Democratic Party chose Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman for the No. 2 spot on its national ticket so that Jews would pour money into the party's coffers. 'It was the money, stupid," wrote Wilbert Tatum, publisher emeritus of the influential Harlem-based Amsterdam News, in an editorial that claimed 'Jews from all over the world, especially in Europe, Africa, Israel and South America, will be sending bundles of money' to the Democrats because of Mr. Lieberman's vice-presidential nomination. In an interview with The Washington Times, Mr. Tatum said he stands behind the editorial, which drew instant criticism from Jewish organizations. 'It is so hideous, so ugly, so outrageous, so insidious,' said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). 'The only reason he can conjure up as to why the party didn't put an African-American on the ticket is because the Jews have bought the election' ... Mr. Tatum, whose wife, the former Susan Kohn, is Jewish, and whose daughter, Ellie Tatum, editor of the The Amsterdam News, is also Jewish, said he has a rabbi and often attends synagogue services.

Jewish Groups Preparing for Israel-Bashing Racism Conference. Haaretz [Israelis newspaper], July 6, 2001
"The UN World Conference on Racism set for Durban, South Africa in September is being billed as the most important human rights event of the year - but it is rapidly evolving into a world forum to blast Israel for racism, anti-Arabism, and violating Palestinian human rights, according to Irwin Cotler, a leading international expert on human rights. Cotler, a Canadian parliamentarian and legal rights expert, took part in an emergency meeting of 60 representatives from Jewish organizations and Israeli agencies - including deputy foreign minister Rabbi Michael Melchior - in London this week, under the auspices of the Jewish Board of Deputies. The meeting discussed how to deal with what Melchior called the 'anti-Semitism in new clothes' the conference is expected to indulge in. Drafts of resolutions prepared for the conference at preliminary planning sessions in Geneva and Tehran earlier this year, depict Israel as a racist state that systematically discriminates against Arabs. It calls on Israel to repeal 'laws based on racial discrimination, like the Law of Return and the policy of forceful occupation that prevents uprooted Palestinian refugees from returning to their homes and property.' ... World Jewish Congress director Israel Singer, who also took part in the emergency session, said Israel and the Jewish communities would work together to present a 'joint Jewish position and fighting for our right to our rights. We certainly won't turn the other cheek.'"

The Featherman File [With Extreme Prejudice],
(Jewish) Forward, July 6, 2001
"The Summer 2001 issue of the Jewish feminist magazine Lilith includes a broadside aimed at memoirist Rebecca Walker by San Francisco-based writer Charlotte Honigman-Smith. 'Unexamined, irresponsible, and almost comically stereotypical' is how Ms. Honigman-Smith characterizes the portrayal of Jews in Ms. Walker's autobiography, 'Black, White and Jewish.' Ms. Honigman-Smith charges that Ms. Walker, the daughter of black novelist Alice Walker and Jewish civil rights lawyer Mel Leventhal, equates Judaism with 'conformity and wealth' and 'uses ugly, unabashed stereotypes about Jewish life and, in particular, Jewish women.' Writes Ms. Honigman-Smith: 'Walker's prepackaged anti-Semitic invocation of the JAP and the spoiled manipulative Jewish wife will have a profound impact on young American feminists. The common assumption that 'normal' Jews are materialistic, conformist and uniformly wealthy has just been given new fuel by a woman Time magazine calls a leader of my generation.' Ms. Walker answered similar charges back in January, in an interview with the Washington Post Service. ''That upsets me a lot,' she told reporter Jennifer Frey. 'All I can say is, that's the community I was in -- extremely privileged -- and I tried to be as honest to the experience as I could be.'"

York Trustees Rebuked by Muslims. Toronto Star, July 10, 2001
"More than 100 Muslims descended on a York Region District Board of Education meeting to protest the board's denunciation of a volunteer race advisory committee member for distributing allegedly anti-Semitic literature ... Bader Abu Zahra got into trouble after distributing a review of a book titled Holocaust Industry, Reflections of the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering, at a teachers' curriculum conference in April. The review was written by a British journalist. The book, written by Norman Finkelstein, the son of Holocaust survivors, describes how certain Jewish groups have exploited Jewish martyrdom and profited from the Holocaust. Alan Shefman, a school trustee for Thornhill-Vaughan, later said the book is 'totally offensive' because it perpetuates a conspiracy theory about Jews and is written by a self-hating Jew, whose work is used by anti-Semitic groups to promote hatred against Jews. Zafar Bangash, a spokesperson for the Islamic Society of York Region, said the board's denunciation of Zahra was defamatory. 'Neither his actions nor the material he distributed are either anti-Semitic or anti-Semitic in character and we ask that . . . an apology be offered to ... Zahra,' Bangash said to loud applause. Bangash and others said Zahra had distributed the material at the teachers' conference to promote debate about the board's focus on the Jewish Holocaust in its curriculum. As a result, other genocides involving groups such as the First Nations, African Americans, Ukrainians, Chinese, Vietnamese and Palestinians had been ignored, Bangash said. He accused the board of censoring 'alternative perspectives' on the issue and challenged the board to prove the review was anti-Semitic."

The Truth Shall Set You Free, by Paul Weyrich. Free Congress Foundation
"'Weyrich assailed for citing Jews in Christ's Death' blared the headline across a page of the front section of Saturday's Washington Post. This after someone I don't believe I have ever met charged in a piece prepared for the American Spectator's website that I am a classic anti-Semite. My breath has been taken away at all of this. The Post piece suggested that my commentary, entitled 'Christ is Risen' has sparked a raging debate as to the appropriateness of suggesting that Jesus Christ was killed by the Jews of his time. By the way, I put my comments in their historical context. So now one Evan Gahr can conclude on this basis that I am an anti-Semite.

"US President Bill Clinton has come to the defense of his wife Hillary, dismissing as 'character assassination' allegations she used an anti-Semitic slur a quarter-century ago. In comments made in today's edition of the New York Daily News, Mr Clinton said his wife was incapable of using a racial epithet ... Ms Clinton is the Democratic nominee for the US Senate from New York, and the allegations, if deemed credible by voters, could erode her support with the state's large and politically powerful Jewish bloc."

Princess Monica. Salon.com, 10-6-98
"Admit it -- you think Monica [Lewinsky] is a JAP [Jewish American Princess]. Since the beginning of the scandal, Monica's ethnicity has defined part of her persona. First, her name is conspicuous. There's no denying your roots with a mouthful of Eastern European Jewish etymology like Lewinsky (or Leibovich). The ethnic stereotype is bolstered by the fact that her father is a wealthy, politically liberal Beverly Hills doctor and her mother is a flashy woman of means with whom she has shared a no-boundaries relationship. By any standards, Monica lives a life of luxury, lunching at the Ritz-Carlton, residing at one of the toniest Washington, D.C. addresses, the famed Watergate building. Her immaculate designer suits, manicured hands and remarkably bouncy and shiny hair (think Alicia Silverstone in 'Clueless') only crystallize her JAP image ... In the Starr report, Lewinsky admits that she asked the president to find her a good job, one she wouldn't have to work for: 'I just want it to be given to me.' With that, Monica fulfilled the most insidious of the Princess stereotypes: the idea that she was entitled. She wasn't qualified for a high-paying, above-entry-level position, but no matter -- somehow, she felt she deserved one, perhaps because she was wronged by the president, or maybe because she was just used to getting her way. In either case, I'm reminded of my high school, where plenty of Jewish girls were mocked for the apathy that came with privilege."

The Holocost. New York Press, Vol. 13, No. 8
"Though a slim monograph, this [The Holocaust Industry] may well become one of the most controversial books of the year. Then again, the topic is so sensitive and explosive that mainstream media and polite society may simply condemn it with silence, leaving it to the scholarly and special-interest venues to carry on the counterattacks that are sure to come. In a way, that would be fitting: It’s part of [Norman] Finkelstein’s argument that such is the power of The Holocaust as a symbol that anyone who doesn’t simply condemn this book out of hand will be accused of anti-Semitism themselves."

School Board Member Quote Sparks Controversy,
Yahoo! News [from Channel 6000], July 23, 2001
"Portland's embattled school board now faces an internal minefield comprised of what some believe are anti-Semitic comments by one of its members ... But the 38-year-old former Freightliner engineer tells KOIN 6 News that the paper distorted his comments. The newspaper quotes Jackson referring to Jews, saying; 'This is a group that came into this country equal to, if not less than, African-Americans. And today they run the country.' Jackson says that his were words of admiration, not racism. Jackson says that he was comparing challenges Portland's African-Americans face with the Jewish community's achievements when he told the Oregonian; 'I do not see the Jews struggling to get over the achievement gap. I do not see the Jews struggling to feed their families ... In fact, I see the Jews running everything.' ... Now he's trying to patch up his own reputation and save his position on the school board."

Ward, Condemned By NBA, Apologizes About Remarks. Baltimore Sun [from Newsday]
"'I want to truly apologize to everybody who was offended by The New York Times Magazine story,' [New York Knicks guard Charlie] Ward said in a statement. 'I will say again that I would never condemn or criticize any group or religion. That is not who I am.' Ward was quoted in the Sunday article as saying 'Jews are stubborn' and, in reference to Jesus Christ, 'They had his blood on their hands' ... Earlier, [Jewish] NBA commissioner David Stern issued a statement that said: 'Ward's comments, and his subsequent confirmation of them, demonstrate zealotry of all types is intolerant and divisive. Despite suggestions that the NBA penalize Ward for his words, I am not planning to do so. Ward would have been better off not to have uttered his uninformed and ill-founded statements, but I do not wish to enhance his sense of martyrdom by penalizing him for giving them public voice" ... In Florida, Ward's home state, where he is generally revered for having won the 1993 Heisman Trophy while playing football for Florida State, a branch of the American Jewish Congress wants Ward to be removed as spokesman for the state's 'born to read' literacy campaign."

Furor Over Warning On Jewish 'Olympics.'
New York Post
[posted at freerepublic.com], June 21, 2001
"New York lawmakers are demanding the firing of a U.S. State Department official who praised an American basketball coach for not participating in Israel's version of the Olympics next month, the Post has learned. In an e-mail obtained by the Post, Dale McElhattan, a security officer at the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, hailed Clemson University basketball coach Larry Shyatt for deciding last Friday to withdraw from the international competition, known as the Maccabiah Games. 'I applaud your courage in declining to take part in the Mac Games here,' McElhattan wrote earlier this week in an e-mail that was forwarded to many members of the team. 'Your decision is responsible," he said, adding it showed a 'high level of character and sound judgment.'"

Morris Leads Vultures in Attacks on Hillary.
New York Observer
, July 24, 2000
"For the Jewish ultra-right, the nasty imputation of anti-Semitism in the White House provided a perfect backdrop for agitation against the Mideast peace process. That was why a little band of protesters appeared outside Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Manhattan on July 17. Led by an outfit called the Jewish Action Alliance, they are infuriated by Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s efforts to achieve a just settlement with the Palestinians. To them, the Clintons’ commitment to peace somehow proves a hidden animus against Jews. And never mind that the [Clinton] couple’s Jewish advisers, appointees, supporters and lifelong friends could fill every seat at a Sabbath service in Madison Square Garden. Under normal circumstances, the fringe right-wing protesters—a fanatical physician, an obscure professor or two from the City University system and a discredited Brooklyn Assemblyman—would be unable to attract a single video crew. Exploiting the 'Jew bastard' controversy had brought no less than a dozen cameras to record their performance on Seventh Avenue. The doctor denounced 'a pattern over years and years of anti-Jewish, anti-Israel bias' in Hillary Clinton’s life. One professor said the slur had exposed her 'character, leanings and prejudices,' and another denounced her as 'completely against everything that is good for Jews and the land of Israel.' But it was militant organizer Beth Gilinsky who revealed how little they really cared about the epithet that made them newsworthy."

Israel: A Monument to Anti-Semitism. Media Monitors, August 1, 2001
"The epithet 'anti-Semitism' is hurled to silence anyone, even other Jews, brave enough to decry Israel's systematic, decades-long pogrom against the Palestinian Arabs. Because of the Holocaust, 'anti-Semitism' is such a powerful instrument of emotional blackmail that it effectively pre-empts rational discussion of Israel and its conduct. It is for this reason that many good people can witness daily evidence of Israeli inhumanity toward the 'Palestinians' collective punishment,' destruction of olive groves, routine harassment, judicial prejudice, denial of medical services, assassinations, torture, apartheid-based segregation, etc. -- yet not denounce it for fear of being branded 'anti-Semitic.' To be free to acknowledge Zionism's racist nature, therefore, one must debunk the calumny of 'anti-Semitism.' Once this is done, not only will the criminality of Israel be undeniable, but Israel, itself, will be shown to be the embodiment of the very anti-Semitism it purports to condemn."

Position Paper Denies Existence of or Potential For Irrational Hatred of Muslims
,
PR Newswire
[Another version of the constant lobbying insistance that "Jews are Unique"], August 21, 2001
"A prominent national Islamic advocacy group today called on Jewish groups to repudiate materials distributed at a Washington, D.C., news conference by B'nai B'rith International that claimed Islamophobia, the irrational hatred of Muslims and Islam, is an 'invention' that can never exist. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said today's incident is but one of many attempts by pro-Israel extremists to vilify and demonize Muslims. (B'nai B'rith held its news conference to comment on the upcoming World Conference Against Racism (WCAR) in South Africa.) In a position paper titled 'Antisemitism, Islamophobia and Anti-Arabism: The False Link,' Manuel Prutcschi, National Director of Community Relations for the Canadian Jewish Congress wrote: 'A trend has emerged, and it is very much reflected in the draft documents of the WCAR, to link antisemitism, Islamophobia and anti-Arabism, as manifestation of racism. Such placement explicitly contends that the three are phenomena, and phenomena of equal gravity. History and reality, however, in no way justify such a contention ...There neither is nor can there be such phenomena as 'Islamophobia' or anti-Arabism.' The equation of antisemitism with 'Islamophobia' and 'anti- Arabism,' which in effect are inventions, is a fundamental element in the campaign to attack, deligitimize (sic) and indeed dismantle the State of Israel...The intent, in equating antisemitism with 'Islamophobia' and 'anti-Arabism,' therefore, is to strip the Jewish people of this moral capital and to negate the value and validity of antisemitism in Jewish advocacy.' The position paper went on to state that to accept Islamophobia as a valid concept would turn antisemitism into just 'one instance of racism among many.'"

Jewish Leader Plans to Quit Racism Summit. Toronto Star, August 30, 2001
"The president of the Canadian Jewish Congress plans to quit the World Conference on Racism because of the anti-Semitism he says he has faced since arriving in South Africa. 'The level of antagonism and downright hatred is pervasive,' Keith Landy said yesterday in a telephone interview from Durban. The United Nations conference begins tomorrow amid considerable controversy, not least because of indications that Israel will be targeted for its treatment of Palestinians - a move that has led to threatened boycotts by leading U.S. and Canadian officials. 'We would not have come if we had known the extent to which the conference has been taken over by this agenda,' Landy said yesterday. 'Unless there is a miracle and a dramatic turnaround, we'll be leaving before the end of the week' ... John Asfour, president of the Canadian Arab Federation, who was to leave Montreal for Durban this morning, said he thinks it would be a mistake for Canadian officials to boycott the conference. 'I don't think the Canadian government should yield to pressure. It is a must for a democratic country to go and hold their head high and and talk about these issues.'''

A Manifesto on Black/Jewish 'Dialogues,'
by Marcus Lewis, afgen.com
"The nature of a true dialogue fundamentally provides for the presentation of two sides. Unfortunately, this has not been the case in the meetings between Blacks and Jews ... This one-sided focus on Jewish grievances, while minimizing Black complaints against Jews, is now reflected in Common Quest magazine, subtitled: 'The magazine of Black/Jewish Relations.' This new periodical is published three limes a year by the American Jewish Committee and Howard University. If the first issue is a harbinger of things to come, then we can look forward to articles by Farrakhan-bashers, civil rights leaders who rely on Jewish financial aid, [and] Black scholars whose careers and publications largely depend on Jewish favor and other Black apologists. None of the writers in the magazine dared to raise serious issues about Jewish racism against Black Americans. Another example of the unequal dialogue between Blacks and Jews is the tendency of some Jews to stigmatize Black leaders whom they label anti-Semitic. Over the past decade, many Jewish leaders have demanded of prominent Blacks that they denounce, repudiate or apologize for the statements or actions of the following Black leaders: Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, Nelson Mandela, Tom Bradley, Jesse Jackson, Desmond Tutu, Al Sharpton, Leonard Jeffries, Tony Martin, Frances Cress Welsing, Yosef ben-Jochannan, John Henrik Clarke, Steve Cokely, Gus Savage and countless other highly respected people. In clear contrast to this, Jewish leaders have never called for the repudiation or condemnation of any prominent Jews who are anti-Black."

Against the Old Cliches, New Criterion, May 1997
"Stranger still was the write-up which [British scholar Norman Davies'] Europe: A History received in The New York Times. Theodore Rabb, in a long, humorless, and surprisingly nasty review, unaccountably dismisses the main of the book ... But if my guess is correct, Professor Rabb’s motivation for attacking the book is not its errors. The real motivation must lie in Professor Rabb’s obscure comments about Jewish matters. Among other things, Davies stands accused of 'singularly and irrelevantly' describing the historian Simon Schama as Jewish, the 'equating of the now notorious German police battalion in the Otwock ghetto in 1942 with the role of Jews in the postwar Communist security forces in Poland,' as well as a 'skewed' discussion of usury and 'errors about the origins of ghettoes.' Why it is wrong to describe Simon Schama as Jewish, since he is Jewish and writes about being Jewish; what exactly is skewed about Davies’ discussion of usury or the origins of ghettos, both of which have struck other historians as perfectly acceptable; none of this is explained. Rabb, it seems, is fond of making vague and unsubstantiated accusations in reviews, and has been caught doing so on at least one previous occasion. As for the accusation concerning Battalion 101 and its behavior in Otwock, these were also picked up in a series of letters to the editor of The Times Literary Supplement by the historian Abraham Brumberg and a woman named Esther Kinsky, who even took it upon herself to send a plaintive form letter around London, asking supporters to 'contribute your opinion on this matter and to help instigate a public debate.' What all appear to object to was Norman Davies’ description of Nazi atrocities and Jewish postwar cooperation with Communist atrocities in the same capsule. Nothing Davies writes is untrue, but Brumberg feels that describing the two on the same page 'helps to camouflage the unique nature of the German holocaust' ... It was certainly provocative to ask whether Jews could also have become killers under certain circumstances, but then it is about time that Jews in the West learn to stop behaving as if the uniqueness of the Holocaust automatically excludes Jews from being accused of any form of bad behavior. It is also about time that historians acknowledge that, in the postwar era, there were some Jews who took part in Communist atrocities, and learn to discuss this fact as part of history, asking why it might have happened: suppressing it will simply create the anti-Semitism we should be attempting to eradicate. A decent book about the subject would help clear the air. Nothing about that discussion need 'camouflage the unique nature of the German holocaust' in any way. I don’t, in fact, see what one has to do with the other. There is a background to these disputes, namely that when Norman Davies’ history of Poland, God’s Playground, was published in the 1980s, some historians found the book too 'right-wing' and anti-Soviet: as late as 1989, a British historian told me he thought Davies’ book 'biased' because it attributed the Katyn massacres to the Russians instead of the Germans. Worse, a group of American academics complained that Davies had failed to put sufficient emphasis on the role which the Poles had played in carrying out the Nazi Holocaust. Although no one spoke openly of anti-Semitism—just as Professor Rabb does not speak openly of anti-Semitism—the accusations were enough to prevent Davies from getting the tenure which he had been promised at Stanford."

Jew Who Loses Security Clearance Blames Anti-Semitism in the Military
,
JTA (Jewish Tribal Review), October 29, 2001
"A Jewish reserve officer says the U.S. Army stripped him of his security clearance and forced him to give up command of an intelligence unit because of his ties to Israel. Maj. Shawn Pine, commander of the 300th Military Intelligence Company of Austin, Texas, holds dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship and received his top security clearance in 1990 — until it was revoked this summer. While Pine says the reasons are rooted in anti-Semitism, the army says it's just implementing a simple rules change. Pine's story, which first appeared in the Jerusalem Post, brings up concerns of heightened sensitivity in the U.S. armed forces to officers with Israel connections. Pine was born in the United States and immigrated to Israel with his family in the late 1970s. Like other Israeli citizens, he entered the Israel Defense Force, serving in the elite Golani Brigade. After his discharge, Pine returned to the United States to attend Georgetown University. He later chose a military career and served nine years as an officer in the U.S. Army. In 1995, Pine returned to Israel to study international relations at the Hebrew University, simultaneously doing his occasional IDF reserve duty ... Pine claims there is a 'blatant' connection between his case and that of Lt. Col. Jeremiah Mattysse, a senior intelligence officer who converted to Judaism and went AWOL in Israel last year. There was speculation that Mattysse had passed on military intelligence to the Jewish state, but he eventually was cleared."

Italian Jews Irate Over Editorial, Blast It as Anti-Semitism, Ill-Informed
,
JTA
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency), October 30, 2001
"An Italian commentator has outraged Jews with a prominent and provocative editorial they claim is anti-Semitic ... After Sept. 11, she wrote, the pope has been prompted by an 'extreme alarm' that Western civilization and its values were in the balance. 'This vast alarm is absent in Israel,' she wrote. 'And if there is something whose absence is felt in Judaism, it is just this: a ‘mea culpa' regarding peoples and individuals who have had to pay the price of blood or of exile in order to allow Israel to exist.' She called on Jews in the Diaspora — many of whom, she said, 'live a double and contradictory loyalty, toward Israel and toward the states to which they belong and in which they vote' — to repent and press Israel to change its policies toward the Palestinians. Jews in the West, she said, should line up with the West, rather than with Israel, choosing 'electoral links' over 'blood links' ... Published comments by Italian political figures, however, expressed appreciation of Spinelli's view — and frustration with the government of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. 'Spinelli hit the bull's-eye,' former Foreign Minister Lamberto Dini told La Stampa. 'The moment has arrived to resolve once and for all the Middle East conflict. Peace has to be built, negotiated, even imposed. Europe and the United States need to make Sharon understand: It is not possible to ask for the end of every violence before sitting down at the negotiation table.'"

Why Arab/Muslim Anti-Semites Are Worse Than the Nazis,

We Jews have reasons to worry because a significant part of humanity have a hatred of us indistinguishable in kind and intensity from that of the Nazis."

Polish Magazine Under Fire for Wartime Memoir,
The Canadian Jewish News
, July 19, 2001
"The editor of a Polish magazine will meet this month with representatives of Canadian Jewish Congress to discuss an article that Congress believes repeats anti-Semitic stereotypes of Jews. The article, which appeared in the February edition of Miedzy Nami magazine, is presented as part of the memoirs of author Chris Gladun's late mother, Janina Sulkowska-Gladun. The memoir repeatedly refers to Jews in a way that 'tars the entire Jewish community,' said Len Rudner, Congress' director of community relations. In a letter to Jolanta Bugajski, editor and publisher of Miedzy Nami, Rudner points out the article,which reflects Sulkowska-Gladun's memories of the Soviet occupation of Poland from 1939-41, describes members of the local Communist party as almost exclusively Jewish. The memoir repeatedly refers to Jews as supporters of the Communist regime and it alleges the NKVD (the Soviet secret police), aided by Jews, decided the fate of its victims. It also states innocent people were in fear of arrest because of a Jewish militia."

When Words Lose Their Meaning, by Jacob Faturechi, Daily Trojan (University of Southern California), February 23, 1996
"Pat Buchanan is an anti-Semite. Rush Limbaugh is an anti-Semite. Richard Nixon was an anti-Semite. Pat Robertson is an anti-Semite. Jerry Falwell is an anti-Semite. Jesse Jackson is an anti-Semite. Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite. Every third person whose name I have ever heard is an anti-Semite. It is absolutely shocking how much I hear this person or that person is some kind of racist or other. If all of it were true, I would not be surprised to see David Duke elected president in 1996. There are allegedly enough anti-Semites out there to repopulate the SS. I guess my ears might especially perk to the word anti-Semite because I am Jewish and I hear such accusations every day. What I barely ever hear is the reasons for these things ... The news media has cried wolf one too many times. The word anti-Semite is thrown around like a racial epithet for all gentiles."

Media Spin Remains in Sync with Israeli Occupation, by Norman Solomon, FAIR (Fariness and Accuracy in Reporting)
"Occasionally, I've written columns criticizing U.S. media for strong pro-Israel bias in news reporting and spectrums of commentary. Every time, I can count on a flurry of angry letters that accuse me of being anti-Semitic. It's a timeworn, knee-jerk tactic: Whenever someone makes a coherent critique of Israel's policies, immediately go on the attack with charges of anti-Jewish bigotry. Numerous American supporters of Israel resort to this tactic. Perhaps the difficulties of defending the Israeli occupation on its merits have encouraged substitution of the 'anti-Semitic' epithet for reasoned debate. Like quite a few other Jewish Americans, I'm appalled by what Israel is doing with U.S. tax dollars. Meanwhile, as journalists go along to get along, they diminish the humanity of us all. 'Ask not for whom the bell tolls.'"

CBS Television Report Seeks to Discredit Church
, Accuses Relator of Pius XII's Beatification Cause of Anti-Semtism, Daily Catholic, March 20, 2000
"News agencies around the world are reporting the supposed anti-Semitic comments of Fr. Peter Gumpel, relator of the cause for Pius XII's beatification. According to the reports, he told CBS television that 'it is a fact that the Jews have killed Christ.' As expected, the news has caused quite a stir, and was picked up by several press agencies in the United States. Before verifying the news, these sources accused Fr. Gumpel of anti-Semitism, to the extent that Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel said: 'I am amazed. I'm shocked and outraged. After all, this countryman, this priest who speaks on behalf of the Vatican, is coming up with accusations that are old, and he forgets that we all now live in the 21st century.' The network has done nothing more than distort Fr. Gumpel's words, quoting them out of context for the purpose of launching a campaign against the Catholic Church on the eve of the Pope's trip to Israel. In a press statement yesterday, Fr. Gumpel explained that 'In the presentation of the '60 Minutes' program, (which was broadcast last night on Sunday, March 19) the following phrase is attributed to me: 'It is a fact that the Jews have killed Christ. It is an undeniable fact.' This phrase was taken out of context and significantly distorts my position on this important question.'"

French Priest Modifies Position on Holocaust Book,
Catholic World News
, May 5, 1996
"A popular French priest, under fire for supporting an author whose book questions the reality of the Holocaust, backed down from his position, even as he was being removed the board of an anti-racist group. Abbe Pierre, a champion of the poor and homeless and former Nobel Prize nominee, withdrew his public support of Roger Garaudy's book that accuses Israel of exploiting the Holocaust for political ends, but declined to withdraw support for the author, an old friend, only if Garaudy didn't live up to his commitment to recognize any error proven to have been made in the book. 'I don't want in any way to allow any doubt about the atrocious reality of the Shoah [Holocaust] and of the millions of Jews exterminated because they were Jews,' Abbe Pierre said in his statement. On the same day, the League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism announced it was expelling the priest from their honorary committee that includes many celebrities, including French President Jacques Chirac. The embattled priest had been a member for 20 years. Abbe Pierre has been a long-time supporter of homeless and immigrant rights, and helped same many Jews during World War II from being deported during the Nazi occupation. The 83-year-old priest said he never read Garaudy's book in its entirety, but agreed that history should focus on all the millions of people killed by the Nazis and not just the Jews."

The Contrary Son,
AIVF
(The Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers)
"[Henry] Bean went to Los Angeles to sell the film [The Believer, about a Jew who becomes a Nazi] and he showed it to staff at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, curators of Los Angeles’ Museum of Tolerance. This kind of screening has become more than a courtesy in the entertainment world. Filmmakers with work about gays show it to GLAAD, those with work about blacks run it past the NAACP, and those with work about Jews show it to the Wiesenthal Center or the Anti-Defamation League. There are no guarantees that the result will always be positive, though. Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the assistant dean of the Wiesenthal Center, didn’t like The Believer. 'This film did not work,' he told the Los Angeles Times after the issue became public. Potential distributors fled, for unstated reasons. Bean was flabbergasted ... 'We get into cultural debates every year at Sundance'” says the [Sundance film] festival’s director, Geoff Gilmore ... With The Believer, it’s about that crisis of cultural identity, which is a universal subject, and of this very particular self-loathing of Jews that has been a tradition of Jewish art and literature.' This self-hating or even just bare exploration of religion happens to be one of the most touchy subjects in American Judaism today. Bean’s film takes it to an extreme."

Esau's Tears. Modern Anti-Semitism and the Rise of the Jews, H-France Book Reviews, book review of Albert Lindemann's book by Michael R. Shurkin, August 2001
"Esau’s Tears is a sweeping comparative study of modern anti-Semitism in Austria, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Russia, and the United States in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Lindemann takes aim at the large and rapidly growing body of work on anti-Semitism and the Holocaust and condemns the whole lot for its 'disappointing intellectual standards and doubtful conclusions' (p. ix). He is primarily concerned with the related tendencies to overstate the importance of anti-Semitism, to oversimplify it, and to reduce its history to a teleology according to which the rise of anti-Semitism caused the Holocaust. His purpose is to demonstrate that the significance of anti-Semitism has been exaggerated, that anti-Semitism, because it has been oversimplified, is misunderstood, and that anti-Semitism (as opposed to chance and personality) did not cause the Holocaust. To prove these points, he marshals an enormous quantity of information and covers a vast amount of ground ... [H]e does advance the following two-part thesis: 1. Anti-Semitism cannot be an entirely baseless hatred, 'having nothing to do with Jewish reality or Jewish action in the real world…' (p. 20). In other words, anti-Semitism results from actual experience with Jews, who must possess qualities that provoke fear or resentment. Jews therefore share some measure of responsibility for the hatred aimed at them. 2. The 'core' of that reality is 'the rise of Jews' in the modern period, a rise that 'was real and not just a perception, even if the perceived truth was exaggerated' (p. 21)."

The Menorah as Mossad Symbol
, rense.com
"Dear Mr. Rense, I was extremely outraged when I saw the Mossad's symbol and logo on your website next to the Mossad Agents Arrested story. http://www.rense.com/general17/mossadagentsarrested.htm As a Jew, I never knew that the Mossad even had a logo and symbol. I felt that the logo on your website was an example of fascist propaganda against us the Jews degrading our heritage. I saw it as the a good example of Hate Crime against us and very racist and anti-Semitic. Before writing you an angry letter, I did a search on the Internet, and to my horror I verified on many other websites that this is the real logo and symbol of the Mossad. I am enclosing a more clear Mossad symbol which I found on the Internet. The reason that I was horrified was the logo which is absolutely supporting most of the stories that I heard recently about the Mossad, and as a Jew, I refused to believe it before."

French Groups Appeal Yahoo's Win,
Washington Post (from the Associated Press), December 5, 2001
"Two French groups are appealing the recent federal court decision that held Yahoo! Inc. did not have to remove Nazi memorabilia from its site to comply with a ruling in France. Attorneys for the League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism and the Union of Jewish Students contended in their appeal filed Tuesday with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Yahoo should not be shielded from French law by the First Amendment. The French groups sued Yahoo last year for letting Nazi collectibles be sold on its auction pages. French law bars the display or sale of racist material. A French judge ordered Yahoo to prevent French users from seeing the material, despite Yahoo's objections that the order would be technically impossible to carry out. The judge said Yahoo would be fined about $13,000 for each day it did not comply."

American Beat: Defamation Row -- We've All Been Put on Notice,
The Jerusalem Post, June 26, 2000
"Anti-Defamation League director Abe Foxman likes to tell stories about people he meets while traveling. They ask him what he does. He says he runs an agency that defends Jews. Their response, typically, is astonishment: 'Really? Jews need defending?' Foxman's point is that Jews are losing their underdog image as they win increasing acceptance in America. This is one of those good news/bad news messages, particularly for the folks charged with wielding the machinery of Jewish power. It's easier than ever to throw your weight around, but harder to elicit sympathy. These are new, uncharted waters. Proceed with caution. That lesson came back to bite Foxman with a vengeance last month, when a federal jury in Denver delivered an unprecedented $10.5 million verdict against the Anti-Defamation League for, of all things, defamation. The jury found that ADL's Mountain States chapter had defamed a non-Jewish couple, William and Dorothy Quigley, by unjustly accusing them of antisemitism. The Quigleys were caught up in a backyard feud with Jewish neighbors, Mitchell and Candace Aronson, in the affluent Denver suburb of Evergreen. The Aronsons produced tapes of the Quigleys' private conversations, picked off a cordless phone by police scanner, containing what they called antisemitic threats. The ADL backed them up. The jury decided the alleged threats sounded more like private venting. Thanks to the tapes, though, the ADL was also found guilty of violating the Quigleys' privacy."

Strange Symbiosis. Israel and Anti-Semitism, antiwar.com, December 28, 2001
"As Israel prepares to expel its Arab helots from Palestine, its amen corner' worldwide is also on the march, excoriating anyone who looks cross-eyed at Ariel Sharon as an 'anti-Semite.' The latest front in this campaign is England, where Barbara Amiel, wife of media magnate Conrad Black, went on a rampage in the Telegraph, claiming that, at a recent dinner party, the French ambassador referred to Israel as 'that sh*tty little country,' and wondered why the world had to be dragged to the edge of World War III on account of it. On the basis of evidence gleaned at ritzy cocktail parties, says Ms. Amiel, the world is experiencing a revival of anti-Semitism, which is now 'respectable' again .. Yes, it is force, not reason or negotiation, that is decisive, avers Ms. Amiel, who gleefully predicts that 'All those people badmouthing the Jews and Israel will quieten down.' Or else be quieted down, involuntarily, like Jean Ryan, Dale Seth, and now perhaps Carl Cameron, of Fox News ... No one would think to label denunciations of, say, Robert Mugabe, as the equivalent of anti-black racism: but we are expected to just accept that virtually all criticism of Israel and Ariel Sharon is due to 'anti-Semitism.' Amiel's blatantly dishonest and self-serving jihad is naturally bound to cause resentment among all thinking people – an emotion that could, easily, turn into genuine anti-Semitism. But that, I believe, is the point: anti-Semitism serves the interests of the most extreme wing of the Zionist movement, and always has."

The Rabinowitzes and Their Ilk, by Yaron London, Middle East Media Research Institute (originally from Yediot Ahronot), April 24, 2000, Israeli Studies,
Dispatch No. 87-Israel
"Journalist Yaron London, in an April 4, 2000 article in Yediot Ahronot, (the most widely circulated daily in Israel) entitled 'The Rabinowitzes and their Ilk,' discusses how the proximity of wealthy Jews in Russia to the centers of power makes him uneasy because of 'what the gentiles will say about us.' In considering the anti-semitic accusations, London endorses the perception that those 'Rabinowitzes and their Ilk' acquired their money by the criminal means of 'sly transactions [and] twisted cunning deals' – reinforcing the Jewish stereotype. Following are excerpts from London's article:"

Jews Are Destroying Russia, Anti-Semitic Article in the Leading Egyptian Daily, Middle East Media Research Institute, Special Dispatch No. 86 - Egypt, April 12, 2000
" In an April 1, 2000 article in the government affiliated daily Al-Ahram, titled 'Words Directed at the Cousins,' columnist Dr. Mustafa Mahmoud, Ph.D., claims that the Jews are destroying Russia and implores them to change their ways lest they face the agony of Hell. Al-Ahram has the largest circulation of any newspaper in Egypt. Following are excerpts from Dr. Mahmoud's article: Berezovsky, Abramowitz and their ilk: 'The Zionist gang that took control in Russia after the ailing Yeltsin's removal has turned the Soviet homeland into a den of prostitution, a cave of thieves, and a swamp of hunger, poverty, and drugs.' 'Today members of the Duma [Russia's Parliament] claim that the Jews rob the land and that people like Berezovsky, Vladimir Gozensky, Roman Abramowitz, Alexander Smolensky, and Alexander Mamut [Russian businessmen of Jewish descent] are the ones who set the fire in Chechnya... They further claim that the explosions in Moscow were perpetrated by the Jews rather than the Chechens, and that the Mafia now corrupting Russia operates in the service of these new criminals.' 'According to reports from the Kremlin itself, this Mafia is run by Jews from Tel Aviv and controls the collapsing Russian economy. [Russian] Businessmen pay them protection money and all of Russia is becoming a collapsing pyramid of obscenities.' 'The Zionists sacrificed Russia to the Americans so that they could become the sole false god with no competitors and so that the Jews could benefit later on from the rule of this new false god [America] all over the world….'"

Daily News Cartoon Provokes Anger, Apology,
Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, December 28, 2001
"An editorial cartoon that ran on the Editorials & Letters page of the Los Angeles Daily News on Dec. 21 outraged readers with an image that confused as much as it provoked. Cartoonist Patrick O’Connor offended readers with his 'View From The Valley' one-panel political cartoon. The wordless image depicted Israeli Defense Force soldiers, with Magen Davids on their helmets, beating up what appeared to be the Three Wise Men, or Palestinian men, or both, in the foreground, as the Nativity unfolds in the background. The juxtaposition of the Israeli military violently assaulting men in turbans with the birth of Jesus seemed perplexing to some. The decision-makers at the Daily News responsible for running the cartoon were Editor David Butler and Managing Editor Ron Kaye. 'We’re apologetic,' Kaye told The Journal. 'Obviously a lot of people are upset about it.' The Daily News printed a rare public apologyfor running the cartoon in its pages. According to a source close to the paper, Butler pushed for the apology. Butler, against the objections of Kaye and Editorial Page Editor Mike Tetreault, had pushed to run the cartoon in the first place, said the source."

Anti-Jewish Slurs in Zimbabwe Paper Draws Ire of African Jewish Congress
, JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency), November 14, 2001
"Accusations of an alleged Jewish plot to destroy Zimbabwe's economy have been featured prominently in a newspaper there. The Bulawayo Chronicle, which supports the government of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, last week published a 3,000-word article alleging Jewish responsibility for the ongoing economic problems facing Zimbabwe. This is the second time in three months that Jews have been singled out for attack there. At the beginning of September, Mugabe was quoted as saying: 'Jews in South Africa, working in cahoots with their colleagues here, want our textile and clothing factories to close down' ... [The article] accused the 'racketeers' of being part of a wider Jewish conspiracy. "

'Saudi Daily': The Jews Are Taking Over the World,
World Tribune (from MEMRI), December 30, 2001
"The Saudi daily Al-Watan published a two-part article on 'The Jewish Sense of Superiority in the World': ...The Jewish sense of superiority is typified by hypocrisy and zeal... The Jews are incapable of actualizing their influence and control for a simple reason, and that is that they are a demographic minority in every society in the world. For this reason, the Jews are trying by means of their trickery to weaken the national identity [of the non-Jews] and thus take over affairs and direct them to serve their interests. This is obvious everywhere in the world where there is a large community, both in Arab societies and in American society, such as the European-American community or African-American and even among the Muslims in the Arab world, where the Jews act by means of their control of the media, politics, and the economy in order to weaken the non-Jewish groups and bring about their disintegration, in order to secure their goals. How is this carried out? It is carried out by the principle of 'divide and rule.' The Jewish zealots fear, and fight, any racial non-Jewish coalition. In the Western countries, the Jews fight all the organizations attempting to safeguard European interests and tradition. In the non-European countries, the Jews constantly act to fracture and weaken the coalitions and the homogeneity of the main racial groups. In America, for example, the Jews did not act merely to weaken the homogeneity and the coalition of European-Americans, but also fought other coalitions, such as the black national movement, the Nation of Islam, and other movements. All these African-American organizations wanted was to preserve the traditions that they had lost in the multicultural society – but the Jews, due to their well-known sense of superiority, did not want anyone besides themselves to preserve their traditions and collective interests. Therefore, they always try to make other societies feel guilty, even about their pride in their culture. They present this interest and sense of pride in the culture of those non-Jewish organizations as a racist tendency."

Israeli Pols Rip U.S. Envoy, New York Post, January 9, 2002
"An Israeli legislator touched off a furor yesterday when he called U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer a 'little Jew boy' who was interfering in Israeli internal matters. Zvi Hendel, a leader of Gaza Strip settlers, made the comment on the floor of the Knesset as the Israeli government was preparing a new budget. Hendel was criticizing a speech by Kurtzer last week in which the veteran diplomat said Israel should stop financing the settlers and use the money to aid the poor and handicapped. 'When he was ambassador to Egypt he didn't dare tell the government to spend money bettering the lives of poor Egyptians rather than on sophisticated weapon systems,' Hendel said. After he called Kurtzer a 'little Jew boy,' other legislators shouted 'anti-Semitism!' Israeli government officials quickly condemned Hendel's remarks. 'Even Jews are not allowed to use anti-Semitic expressions,' Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said."

Israelis Launch Global Effort to Fight 'New' Breed of Antisemitism,
[Jewish] Forward, January 11, 2002
"A 'new breed' of global anti-Semitism threatens world Jewry and the state of Israel. That was the message delivered last Sunday by Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister, Rabbi Michael Melchior, when he announced the formation of a new organization to combat what organizers said was an attempt to deny the Jewish people the right to live as an equal member in the family of nations. The new group, the International Committee to Combat Anti-Semitism, will be based in Switzerland with satellite offices in New York and Jerusalem. Organizers did not say how the organization will be funded, but a Knesset source said the chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, David Magen, will likely urge Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to fund the project. Rabbi Melchior said the idea for ICCA came out of the United Nations' World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa. At that conference, Rabbi Melchior said, hatred of Israel barely cloaked hatred of Jews. 'The demonization of Israel as the state of the Jewish people is the demonization of Jews,' said Rabbi Melchior ... Obstacles remain in the group's path to success, most notably its legitimacy as an organization. Mr. Vince told the Forward that ICCA must establish itself as an international organization with a global purpose and not just another outlet for Israel's public relations war against the Palestinians ... To counter that perceived image problem, Rabbi Melchior said the group would gather 'as wide an international network as possible by assembling human rights groups and Jewish organizations... to study, research and then combat the new anti-Semitism.'"

Jewish Angst in Albion, Haaretz, January 18, 2002
"Signs of leftist and Islamist anti-Semitism are rife in Britain these days, and the Jewish community is worried. But many are equally concerned that fear is blurring the line between hatred of Jews and legitimate criticism of Israel ... 'I would have stood up in a court of law and sworn these people did not have a racist bone in their bodies,' Stephen Pollard, a well-known left-of-centerwriter and broadcaster, and a Jew, was describing a group of his closest, oldest Gentile friends sitting together recently at a dinner party. 'Suddenly, one of them said, ‘I’m boycotting Israeli goods.’ I challenged her: ‘Do you mean Jewish goods?’ ‘No,’ she replied, ‘Israeli.’ I asked: ‘What about Dixon’s [the high-street electronics chain owned by a prominent UK Jewish philanthropist and Zionist, Sir Stanley Kalms]?’ Yes, she agreed, she wouldboycott Dixon’s, too. And then it came pouring out. ‘You all stick together –always going on about the Holocaust. Stephen, you’re the same as the rest of them: You only defend Israel because you’re Jewish.’ 'The others all took her side. ‘Why don’t you leave her alone. She’s only sayingwhat we think.’ I felt nauseated and shocked. I had been living in a dreamworld.” Anglo-Jewry’s dream world has been jolted twice over: once by the intifada, and then by September 11. The left-liberal media (The Guardian, The Independent, the BBC, the New Statesman) are scathing in their criticism of Israel. Spokesmen for Britain’s two million-strong Muslim community are virulent in their attacks on the Jewish state and on its supporters. London’s chattering classes are reportedly making uninhibitedly anti-Semitic remarks at dinner parties. The Jews lump all these together – and are worried."

I'm Fed Up with Being Called an Anti-Semite, by Deborah Orr,
The Independent [UK], December 21, 2001
"Ever since I went to Israel on holiday, I've considered it to be a shitty little country too. And I was under the impression that even Israelis thought this. I mean, if they thought Israel was small but perfectly formed, surely they wouldn't be so hell-bent on making it bigger and better, come what may. Whoops! Now, I stand accused of both anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, which we are constantly, patiently, told are exactly the same thing. No they're not. They're two different things ... I'm getting fed up with being called an anti-Semite. And the more fed up I get, the more anti-Semitic I sound. If the likes of Ms Amiel continue to insist that everyone with a word to say against Israel is an anti-Semite, she is going to find one day that the world is once more divided neatly between anti-Semites and Jews. That sounds like an anti-Semitic threat. It's not. It's the last thing I want. However, potential, but conditional, sympathisers are alienated so much by Zionist rhetoric that they start singing from what sounds like the same songsheet as the anti-Semite conspiracy theorists."

Traficant Targets Jurors' Backgrounds,
Roll Call (Washington DC), January 17, 2002
"Rep. James Traficant (D-Ohio) wants to delve into the ethnic and religious backgrounds of potential jurors at his upcoming criminal trial and has signaled that he may seek to keep Jewish individuals off his jury because of the assistance he gave to an accused Nazi war criminal. In a motion filed Monday, Traficant sought to add 20 questions to a proposed jury questionnaire. Most of the questions ask about the ethnic backgrounds, national origins and religious affiliations of the potential jurors, their spouses, parents and grandparents. Traficant expressed apprehension about a Jewish backlash during a pretrial hearing earlier this month, saying he was concerned that his well-publicized support of John Demjanjuk would be held against him. Demjanjuk, an 81-year-old Cleveland resident, was accused of being a notorious Nazi prison guard known as 'Ivan the Terrible.' He was acquitted of the charge and spared the death penalty in Israel and was accompanied back to the United States by Traficant in 1993 ... Over the course of his nine terms, Traficant has angered many Jews with his outspoken support for Palestinians and votes against measures supporting Israel. In a House speech the day after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Traficant pointed to U.S. support for Israel as the reason for the attacks, causing a number of lawmakers to walk off the floor in protest ... Traficant issued a statement later saying he 'probably should not have mentioned the fact that the one individual was of Jewish descent, but the fact is that he is of Jewish descent, and he and a small minority of members of the Jewish community have continued to label me as an anti-Semite, and I am sick and tired of it.'"

How I Was Fired By National Review, by Joseph Sobran, [posted at overthrow.com]
"In October 1993 I was fired by National Review, the magazine I'd written for since 1972 ... [Editor] Bill [Buckley] and I had been good friends for most of the 21 years I'd worked for him. But the friendship was strained in 1986, when he took the side of my attackers in a row over Israel. When [Commentary editor] Norman Podhoretz and his wife Midge Decter accused me of 'anti-Semitism,' Bill wrote a weird public disavowal of my columns on Israel, saying in effect that I wasn't anti-Semitic, but deserved to be called anti-Semitic. What made it so bad was that I knew he didn't even believe what he was saying. It was a failure of nerve. That was clear even from the disavowal itself, which included a sweaty digression on Jewish retaliatory power.Earlier that year, he'd taken me to dinner to warn me of the dangers of being 'perceived,' as they say, as an anti-Semite. His book makes it sound like a long campaign to set me straight, but it wasn't like that at all. Bill didn't suggest I'd done anything wrong or that he disagreed with anything I'd written. But Norman Podhoretz was mad at me. That was enough. Later that evening when I told Bill about some Irish Catholic fans of mine who told me they prayed for me, he sneered, 'You don't need those people.' Bill denies having said this (I was fired for quoting it), but he said it, all right. In itself it would be a small thing, but it describes his own policy: ignore the Catholics, cultivate the powerful."

New Group to Fight Modern Anti-Semitism,
Canadian Jewish News, January 2002
"Mount Royal MP Irwin Cotler is leading an effort to attract prominent non-Jews to a new international body that will 'sound the alarm' over what he describes as 'an exploding new anti-Jewishness' in the world. The International Commission to Combat Anti-Semitism held its founding meeting in early January in Jerusalem with Cotler, a longtime human rights lawyer, and Per Ahlmark, a former deputy prime minister of Sweden, agreeing to serve as its interim co-chairs ... At a press conference announcing the commission's formation, Cotler said the new anti-Semitism hides behind denunciations of Israel and Zionism and is best defined as 'the discrimination against, or denial of, the national particularity and peoplehood' of Jews ... The Israeli government has endorsed the project. Michael Melchior, Israel's deputy foreign minister, told reporters the new anti-Semitism needs new strategies to expose and condemn it. He said that while many Jewish organizations monitor this threat, one composed mainly of respected non-Jews of global stature would have more impact. Plans are for the commission to be based in Switzerland, with offices in Jerusalem and New York."

Haunted By Ill Winds of the past, Haaretz, February 1, 2002
"David Susskind, one of the leaders of Belgium's Jewish community, is incensed by discussions of anti-Semitism. Though he is concerned about the spate of insults and acts of vandalism against Jews, he doesn't view them as the sign of a genuinely dangerous trend of anti-Semitism. Susskind was infuriated and embarrassed when [Israeli] Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Melchior called on Jews in France to immigrate to Israel, to save themselves from anti-Semitism. He's even ruminated about the possibility that the State of Israel might have a deliberate policy of stirring up fear among Jews in Europe, so as to encourage them to immigrate to Israel. 'I don't know who's responsible for this [scare campaign] plan in the government,' he explains, 'but I don't have any doubt that somebody wants to stir unrest in France and Belgium. Who's going to respond to Melchior's foolish appeal? Only those who can't find a place in life, those who can't find a spouse or a job, those who have gone bankrupt and those who aren't worth much. Those are the ones who say that there's anti-Semitism.'"

The Return of Anti-Semitism. To Be Against Israel Is to Be Against Jews,
Opinion Journal (Wall Street Journal), February 5, 2002
"An acquaintance from Paris saying that never does she remember Jews being talked about there with such open hostility as they are now. A friend back from Spain relating: 'It's never happened to me before--I only had to say I was from Israel for all eyes to go cold.' An article in the respected French left-wing weekly Le Nouvel Observateur reporting, straight-faced, a long-disproved slander to the effect that soldiers of the Israel Defense Force rape Palestinian women so that their families will then murder them to redeem the family honor. Another article by the respected British novelist A.N. Wilson in the London Evening Standard of Oct. 22, coming 'reluctantly' to the conclusion that the state of Israel no longer has a right to exist. A piece by Petronella Wyatt in the London Spectator, observing with dismay that 'since September 11 anti-Semitism and its open expression has become respectable at London dinner tables.' ('Well,' Wyatt recounts being told by a liberal member of the House of Lords, 'the Jews have been asking for it, and now, thank God, we can say what we think at last.') A column by the publisher of the German weekly Der Spiegel, comparing Ariel Sharon's attitude toward Palestinian Arabs to Hitler's attitude toward the Jews. A cartoon in the Dec. 7 International Herald Tribune, four days after 26 Israelis were killed by suicide bombers to whose recruiters Yasser Arafat had given carte blanche: perched atop a tank with a Jewish star, a bulging 'Jewish' nose (which he does not have) on his cruelly contorted face, Ariel Sharon points a cannon at the helpless chairman of the Palestinian Authority and screams, 'Prove you have the authority to obey us!' On the wall of Arafat's wrecked office is a map of Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank labeled 'Palestine' and showing the 1947 United Nations partition borders. Palestinian refugees peer through a shell hole in the wall. The International Herald Trib!"

Religious Leaders Denounce Wildmon's Anti-Semitism,
Institute for First Amendment Studies, June/July/August 1989
"The documentation includes evidence of [Rev. Donald E.] Wildmon blaming Jews for objectionable TV programs and 'anti-Christian' films. For years, Rev. Wildmon has maintained that 'Hollywood and the theater world is heavily influenced by Jewish people.' And he has consistently expressed his belief that there is a conspiracy among television network executives and advertisers which amounts to 'a genuine hostility towards Christians and the Christian faith.' 'This anti-Christian programming is,' according to Wildmon, 'intentional and by design.' ... Stuart Lewengrub, director of the Anti-Defamation League's Atlanta office, said of Rev. Wildmon, 'He's encouraging his followers to believe that Jews are responsible for the kind of programming they dislike' ... Lewengrub said the ADL has tried in a constructive way 'to lean over backward to give him the benefit of the doubt.' 'If Wildmon's point is that Hollywood leaders are secular or atheists,' Lewengrub said, 'he can say so without alluding to their religious backgrounds. Nor does Wildmon need to note, as he often does, that the Jewish background of television executives 'contrasts dramatically with society as a whole, which is 2 1/2 percent Jewish.' 'There is no doubt in my mind that Wildmon has engaged in anti-Semitism,' Lewengrub said. 'He didn't stop. He continued doing it.'"

Sharon Angers Paris with Charges of Racism,
Haaretz, February 26, 2002
"A storm has erupted in France following Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's statement last week that he is very concerned for the fate of French Jews in light of 'the wave of dangerous anti-Semitism sweeping France.' During his speech in Jerusalem last week to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Sharon said 'there are around six million Arabs [in France], and [French] Jewry could find itself facing great danger. This is why we have started preparing to welcome them [as immigrants].' The leading French newspaper, Le Monde, reported over the weekend that Sharon's remarks have stirred a wave of protests and clarifications. French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine responded to Sharon's comments by saying that 'calling France an anti-Semitic country is repulsive and despicable.'"

Dartmouth Reviewed, National Review, June 22, 1998
"Mr. [James Oliver] Freedman [who stepped down as president of Darmouth college] is Jewish, and he makes conspicuous use of that fact when he can exploit it politically, although his relationship to Judaism is tenuous ... Most notable, perhaps, was the following statement by Mr. Freedman, which was later printed and distributed by the College information service, and which he himself often described, I'm not joking, as his 'Gettysburg Address': 'For ten years, The Dartmouth Review has attacked blacks because they are blacks, women because they are women, homosexuals because they are homosexuals, and Jews because they are Jews.' Every word of this 'Gettysburg Address' except the first three is false, and can be shown to be so from the text of the newspaper, not to say the composition of its staff. The current editor of the Review, standing by as Mr. Freedman bellowed through his amplifier, was Kevin Pritchett, who is black. Two previous editors-in-chief came from the Indian subcontinent, one of them being Dinesh D'Souza, who now has published two important best-sellers on education and on race. The first president of the Review had been Nathan Levinson, and the Review had had many Jewish staffers and editors."

Oscar Voters Pause Over 'Beautiful Minds'; Nash 'Jew Bashing' Left Out of Film,
Drudge Report, March 5, 2002
"Producers of the Oscar nominated film A BEAUTIFUL MIND quietly left out all references to John Nash's anti-Semitic views, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. But in recent days, as final voting for OSCAR approaches, some Academy members are discovering shocking Jew-bashing passages found in the book on which the movie is based! 'Why am I voting for this Jew hater?' a veteran Academy member said earlier this week before voting. 'I am a Jew! I feel sick to my stomach.' MORE Jew Bashing scenes found in the book 'A Beautiful Mind: The Life of the Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash' have been completely scrubbed from the film, directed by Ron Howard and staring Russell Crowe -- even though actor Crowe's picture is featured on the paperback of the biography. 'The root of all evil, as far as my personal life is concerned (life history) are Jews,' John Nash wrote in a letter in 1967. [Noted on page 326 of BEAUTIFUL MIND.]"

Ethnic Comments Rattle a Congressional Race in Chicago,
New York Times, March 6, 2002
"... the fiercely fought Democratic primary in the Fifth Congressional District here threatened to degenerate into Jew versus Pole after ugly ethnic comments by a supporter of one candidate reminiscent of Chicago's political blood baths of generations ago. The primary, on March 19, on the North Side pits Rahm Emanuel, a former senior adviser to President Bill Clinton whose father was an Israeli, against Nancy Kaszak, a former state legislator whose great- grandparents were among the legions of Polish Roman Catholic immigrants to Chicago in the late 1800's. The controversial comments were made at a breakfast to celebrate Casimir Pulaski Day, when schools and government offices here close to honor the Polish-American Revolutionary War hero. Edward Moskal, president of the Polish American Congress, a political action committee that had endorsed Ms. Kaszak and gave her an award at the breakfast, called Mr. Emanuel a 'millionaire carpetbagger' and suggested, erroneously, that he had dual citizenship with Israel and had served in its armed forces. 'The country from which Poles come struggled for democracy," Mr. Moskal said. 'While the country's certain elements, to which he gave his allegiance, defiles the Polish homeland and continues to hurl insults at the Polish people," apparently a reference to controversies over the use of the Auschwitz death camp ... 'Those weren't criticisms of Rahm Emanuel as an individual," [Emmanuel] said. 'Those statements, the meaning behind those statements, were criticisms of me as a Jewish American.'"

U.S. Urges Saudis, Other Arabs to Halt Anti-Jewish Incitement in Media,
Yahoo (from AFP), March 19, 2002
"The United States called on Saudi Arabia and other Arab governments to stop media reports that incite hatred of Jews, urging them to act in the interest of Israeli-Palestinian peace. Washington said Arab leaders should do more for the ailing peace process than back Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz's proposal which envisions Arab recognition for Israel in exchange for full Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands occupied in the 1967 Middle East War. In an official US government editorial that began airing Monday on the Voice of America (VOA), the United States said the crown prince's idea called 'attention to the need to do everything possible to help end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.' 'In the meantime, there is something that Saudi Arabia, and other Arab countries, could do right now to ease tensions in the Middle East,' the editorial said. 'They could stop newspapers and radio and television stations, especially those controlled by the state, from inciting hatred and violence against Jews.'"

Billy Graham, Anti-Semitic?, by William F. Buckley,
National Review, March 19, 2002
"The one thing critics of Billy Graham have failed to come up with is a single act, a single syllable in the public career of Mr. Graham that could be interpreted as anti-Semitic. There can't be another living American whose day-by-day life has been more minutely examined. When did he say anything anti-Semitic? When did he egg on critics of the Jews? When did he by inflection, let alone declaration, seek to undermine the Jewish state? When the words quoted in the Haldeman diaries were released in 1994, nobody paid any attention to them, and Graham said about them only that they could not have been his own words. Well, they were his own words, because the tape recording released a fortnight ago established this, so Mr. Graham was reduced simply to apologizing for having said them, and reiterating that manifestly they did not reveal sentiments he ever acted upon."

Get the Jews, Jewish World Review, March 21, 2002
"Those confounded Jews. They just won't line up quietly for the march to the gas chambers. This, alas, now as for eons past, is the sum and substance of World Opinion. Anti-Jewish sentiment (since Arabs, like Jews, are Semites - children of Shem - it is ridiculous to call this anti-Semitism) has been durable. It is as rife in France today as it was a century ago during the Dreyfus affair. It is resurgent in Germany and Austria and Eastern Europe. And it is - as always - de rigeur in the Muslim world ... .I've never understood anti-Jewish sentiment. Aside from a distressing tendency to vote Democratic, most Jews in the United States have been model citizens. There have been Jewish gangsters (e.g., Meyer Lansky), but for the most part, Jews show up in violent crime reports only as victims. Jews are dramatically overrepresented in the educated professions, despite, in the past, having had difficulty being admitted to elite universities because they weren't Christian, and, in the present, having difficulty being admitted to elite universities because they are white. Jews in Israel have been under a vicious assault which should appall all who are civilized."

The Chutzpah Man Vs. The Den of Thieves,
Columbia Journalism Review, Jan/Feb 1992
"One of the first lessons young reporters learn from a city desk is that in a run-of-the-mill crime story the race or ethnic group of the people involved is not 'relevant,' not to be included. Yet to censor ethnic elements in an ambitious piece, one that tries to include a sense of context and personal background, can be to succumb to a kind of racial prudishness ... .Into this terrain of real and perceived ethnic slurs now rides Alan M. Dershowitz, the famous lawyer, in defense of Michael Milken, his equally well-known client, who pleaded guilty to six felony charges in 1990. Milken, the former junk-bond king, sits in a California prison awaiting developments on more than 100 civil suits filed against him and on his motion to reduce his ten-year sentence. Milken's rise and fall, of course, was one of the biggest news stories of the 1990s. The latest book on those Gordon Gekko years is Den of Thieves, by Pulitzer Prize-winner James B. Stewart, now the front-page editor of The Wall Street Journal. Den of Thieves traces how a number of traders like Milken got greedy, and it goes beyond what he admitted in his plea bargain with the government. Dershowitz is an author, too, most recently of Chutzpah, a call for members of his generation of American Jews to demand first-class status in a mostly Christian nation, and to assert themselves more forcefully against subtle anti-Semitism. And Dershowitz has employed a Chutzpah defense of Milken, attacking Den of Thieves on two levels ... [One] line of attack -- a charge of anti-Semitic stereotyping -- was deployed in a section of the full-page 'Open Letter' in the Times."

Starbucks CEO Says Anti-Semitism on the Rise,
King 5 (Seattle), April 22, 2002
"Divisions within the Jewish community were on display Thursday in Seattle as Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz criticized Palestinian inaction in the Middle East while others protested the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. 'If you leave this synagogue tonight and go back to your home and ignore this, then shame on us,' Howard Schultz told a crowded temple of Jewish Americans on Seattle's Capitol Hill. Schultz warned other Jews against sitting back and doing nothing. 'What is going on in the Middle East is not an isolated part of the world. The rise of anti-Semitism is at an all time high since the 1930's,' he said. 'The Palestinians aren't doing their job they're not stopping terrorism.' While reaction inside the temple to Schultz's remarks grew from a warm reception to a standing ovation, the mood outside the temple was different."

Anti-Israel, Anti-Semitic?
ABC News, April 21, 2002
"'The slander of anti-Semitism is something that no critic of Israel has really been spared,' said Christopher Hitchens, a Washington-based British writer known for his support of the Palestinian cause. 'I know of many honest people who really doubt the wisdom of Israel's attempt to hold on to Arab territory, and who simply feel that the raising of their voice on it would be more trouble than its worth because of an allegation that, as I say, no serious person can bear to be accused of,' he added ... Hitchens holds the view that the Jewish state, which celebrated its 54th birthday last week, is not something the Jewish people need. That's a view that many Jews would call anti-Semitic, even though Hitchens is the son of a Jewish mother and is married to a Jewish woman. 'It's been the experience of a lot of people like myself, who sympathize with the Palestinian cause, that they often feel they have to almost disprove the allegation of anti-Semitism before the argument can begin or before they can be allowed to participate in it,' Hitchens said. Hitchens said speaking out against Israel can be more dangerous in the United States, where support is high for Israel, than in Europe, where the Palestinian cause has more popular support. 'Here's an example of where one has to choose one's words with extreme care,' Hitchens said. 'No intelligent person living in Washington would disagree with the following statement: The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is perhaps the most powerful lobby in the city. Maybe the National Rifle Association is stronger. Probably not. That's an objective fact. Everyone knows it's true.' Hitchens chose his words carefully because talk of a Jewish lobby can be another one of those dangerous topics. It's dangerous for Jews because it feeds the imaginations of real anti-Semites who believe in a worldwide Jewish conspiracy. It's dangerous for those who would discuss Jewish political influence, because they risk the charge of anti-Semitism."

Hatefest on the Mall,
Washington Times, April 22, 2002
"Mall When does anti-Semitism become an even darker form of Jew-hatred? If this weekend's demonstrations in downtown Washington D.C., particularly those on Saturday, didn't answer that question, they demonstrated the perilously thin line between dark and darker. It wasn't the endless chants of "Free Palestine, Free Palestine" or the sea of black, red and green flags. That's fair enough. But it was the other things — the posters of Israeli flags with a swastika substituting for the Star of David, the coterie of members of the New Black Panther Party calling for "Death to Israel," the kids with white headbands written in Persian, looking like children bent on suicide ... The black and red of the outfits of the anti-World Bank crusaders were almost completely covered by Palestinian flags ... Asad Abdel Rahman, the official Palestinian Authority representative in Washington, told an assembled gaggle of reporters that the marchers weren't really anti-Jewish. Then he was off marching again, before being run over by a throng of marching Palestinians who demanded that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon be tried as a war criminal ... Still, the palpable anti-Semitism in the air was ominous enough. As the Mall slowly started clearing out Saturday afternoon, the only things left were the hateful chants, the waving placards of swastikas and stars and the moral certitude for a cause that only old leftists could embrace."

World Jews Call on Europe to Fight Anti-Semitism,
alertnet.org (from Reuters), April 23, 2002
"World Jewish leaders blamed Europe's political and intellectual elites on Tuesday for indirectly fuelling anti-Semitic violence that has swept Western Europe in recent weeks. The World Jewish Congress (WJC), holding an emergency executive meeting two days after the stunning electoral success of the far-right in France, urged European governments to kill off anti-Semitism before it spread. 'To the political and intellectual leaders we send the following message -- we will never forget that once again you are standing by and doing nothing while synagogues burn in your cities,' the Congress said in a statement. It said media prejudice and pro-Palestinian statements by many politicians and prominent intellectuals had encouraged extremists in Europe to attack Jews and their property. 'The WJC notes with concern that European intellectual and political elites are creating an ambience in which anti-Semitism is considered legitimate,' it said."

Defending Israel or Crying Wolf?
Colorado Daily, April 24, 2002
"'People yelling anti-Semitism is harmful," [Colorado professor Ira] Chernus said. 'It's obviously harmful to the Palestinians and it has a harmful effect in the United States because it (hinders) the ability to discuss the issue freely. It's a blindfold and a gag.' Pointing to what he calls a 'culture of victimization' among Jewish communities in the United States, Chernus said, such a mindset acts as an obstacle to free dialogue. Chernus said he has been disappointed by the reaction of university officials who last week called for tolerance from all students, but also erased chalkings on campus that read 'end the illegal occupation' and 'Zionazis', while leaving messages like 'Happy Birthday Israel' intact. 'It's their job to talk to everyone and be sensitive to everyone,' Chernus said. 'But, the one line [that university officials said] - we have to be mindful of who we hurt -- really bugged me.' Citing a potential infringement on free speech, Chernus said the university is treading dangerously close to taking sides. 'Technically they're right,' said Chernus. 'Of the many things you should keep in mind, one of them is how your words affect others. If I was going in to talk to a room full of 85-year-old Holocaust survivors, I would not say what I plan to say tomorrow night, but the combination (of that statement) and selectively erasing political statements certainly has a chilling affect (on debate) and it seems to imply (university officials) are not impartial.'"

Lawmaker Criticized By Jewish Colleagues for Remarks,
TBO (Tampa Bay) [from Associated Press], April 24, 2002
"A Panhandle lawmaker is being criticized by Jewish colleagues and the American Jewish Congress for remarks he made during a battle over religious rights language he wants inserted into the state's school code. Rep. Jerry Melvin, R-Fort Walton Beach, criticized Jewish senators for 'raising mortal heck' over language that would let students pray in school, distribute religious literature and talk about religion as they would politics. 'You thought we had shot them - every one - or lined them up against the damn wall,' Melvin told Gannett Regional Newspapers in Florida about objections raised by Jewish lawmakers over the language. A special session called to approve the school code ended without an agreement when the Senate wouldn't pass the rewrite because of the religious-freedoms language, which Melvin refused to remove during negotiations with senators. Melvin's comments angered Jewish lawmakers and prompted the American Jewish Congress to demand Melvin apologize or be censured. The group said the comments were 'anti-Semitic' and 'bigoted.' Sen. Ron Klein, who is Jewish, said he is considering asking House Speaker Tom Feeney to strip Melvin from his position as chairman of the House Lifelong Learning Council. 'He has a tremendous amount of responsibility in that position. He needs to be called to task for that. It's blatant anti-Semitism,' said Klein, D-Boca Raton. Paul Breitner, a Miami lawyer and president of the Southeast Region of the American Jewish Congress, said it was not just Jews who opposed the religious rights language. 'The opposition came from a variety of quarters, however Rep. Melvin chose to single out Jews in the way that bigots and anti-Semites usually do,' he said."

Israel to Form International Commission to Stamp Out Antisemitism,
Jerusalem Post, May 6, 2002
"Israel is working to form an international commission to monitor and stamp out rising anti-Semitism, an Israeli official said today. Attacks against Jews in Europe have jumped to alarming proportions in recent months as fighting between Israel and the Palestinians continues in the Middle East ... 'We are in a situation of emergency when it comes to the fight against anti-Semitism,' Melchior said at a news conference. 'Those who believe in the future of democracy and decency will all join forces in this fight against anti-Semitism.'[Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Michael] Melchior met early today with representatives from Israeli organizations and Jewish groups from around the world ... Israel's Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, a Holocaust survivor, told a gathering of rabbis in Brussels today that anti-Semitism is 'an international mental disease.'"

Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination: The Case of Anti-Semitism, by Arie Nadler, The Stephen Roth Instiute (Tel Aviv University), 197/98
[In popular Jewish lore, using the theories of Sigmund Freud, the "anti-Semite's hostility toward Jews is believed to come from sexual problems]
"Finally, I will examine the personality of the individual who has a tendency to become prejudiced and anti-Semitic .... This personality structure results in an individual whose unconscious is a stormy pool of desires and unfulfilled needs. In the Freudian psychoanalytic tradition, these needs are mostly sexual and aggressive in nature. The very rigid Super Ego of such persons causes them to adhere to conventional values which do not allow expression of these unconscious needs. The source of these values is external and they are devoutly adhered to. Thus, the strict and rigid Super Ego does not allow such individuals to express their sexual and aggressive needs in a well-adjusted way. While the more well-adjusted personality 'negotiates' such conflicts to a better solution, the authoritarian personality is caught in a conflict with which the weak Ego cannot effectively cope. S/he is therefore ultra conservative, but highly frustrated ... Further, it seems that being highly prejudiced and anti-Semitic serves some deep-seated psychological functions of the individual holding these views. In fact, the adoption of such positions is in itself a resolution of internal conflicts of a maladjusted personality. Knowing this, however, is no great comfort for the target of prejudice. The costs of prejudice and discrimination are high, possibly unbearable, whether the discriminator is psychologically well-adjusted or not. Nowhere is this more true than in the case of anti-Semitism.

'Final Solution,' Phase 2, by George Will,
Jewish World Review, May 3, 2002
"Meanwhile, anti-Semitism is a stronger force in world affairs than it has been since it went into a remarkably brief eclipse after the liberation of the Nazi extermination camps in 1945. The United Nations, supposedly an embodiment of lessons learned from the war that ended in 1945, is now the instrument for lending spurious legitimacy to the anti-Semites' war against the Jewish state founded by survivors of that war. Anti-Semitism's malignant strength derives from its simplicity -- its stupidity, actually. It is a primitivism which, Wisse wrote, makes up in vigor what it lacks in philosophic heft, and does so precisely because it 'has no prescription for the improvement of society beyond the elimination of part of society.' This howl of negation has no more affirmative content than did the scream of the airliner tearing down the Hudson, heading for the World Trade Center. Today many people say that the Arabs and their European echoes would be mollified if Israel would change its behavior. People who say that do not understand the centrality of anti-Semitism in the current crisis. This crisis has become the second -- and final? -- phase of the struggle for a 'final solution to the Jewish question.' As Wisse said 11 years ago, and as cannot be said too often, anti-Semitism is not directed against the behavior of the Jews but against the existence of the Jews."

Anti-Semitism in a Native Tongue,
TownHall.com, May 2, 2002
"France's anti-Jewish sentiments, however, are not only found in the fascist ideology of Le Pen and his followers. They proliferate on the left in France, too, where it is common to hear the Israeli's treatment of the Palestinians compared to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. You might call this 'immoral equivalence.' Christopher Caldwell, in the Weekly Standard, suggests that anti-Semitism of the left is more dangerous than that of the right because it filters down from the intellectual anti-globalist and anti-capitalist, pro-Third World ideologues flowering in the media and in the universities. 'We haven't had this level of anti-Semitism since World War II,' Avi Beker, secretary-general of the World Jewish Congress, told a meeting of Jewish leaders in Brussels. 'European governments cannot just shrug their shoulders and say it's all part of the Middle East problem. On many occasions when there is a deterioration in the social fabric, it starts with the Jews, especially here on this continent where there has been a history of anti-Semitism.' Nor is our country immune. The Yiddish Radio Project, a 10-week series on National Public Radio, fashioned as inspiring light-hearted memories, is drawing anti-Semitic mail in great numbers. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a convenient vehicle to vent hatred of the Jews. Henry Sapoznik, co-producer of the show, told the New York Times that the attacks on Yiddish programs, which were actually made 50 years ago, appeal to 'nativist anti-Semitism.' He compares the attackers to the anti-Semites who created and distributed 'The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion,' a Russian forgery that was passed around in the early 1900s purporting to detail a Jewish conspiracy to dominate the world. In recent ABC Nightline coverage of a rally in Berkeley, a reporter took a certain pride in telling viewers that Nightline chose not to run the image of a young woman holding up a caricature of Ariel Sharon, wearing a swastika prominently displayed on his armband, giving the Hitler salute. He found it too offensive. Notes Ron Rosenbaum in the New York Observer, that kind of 'cover up' prevents us from observing how much 'anti-Israel protests have become anti-Semitic.'"

FDP Moves to Disprove Suggestions It Is 'Anti-Semitic,'
Faz.net [Germany], May 7, 2002
"Is the Free Democratic Party really a 'catch basin for anti-Israeli positions,' as Foreign Minister Joseph (Joschka) Fischer recently charged? Unlikely. Gripped by election fever, Mr. Fischer -- who once graced a conference of the (then-terrorist) Palestine Liberation Organization with his presence -- appears to be experiencing a shift in standards, and is now accusing the FDP of being anti-Israel ... . Jürgen Möllemann, deputy chairman of the FDP and head of the state party in North Rhine-Westphalia ... provoked outrage when he appeared to justify suicide attacks by Palestinian terrorists against Israeli civilians, telling Berlin's Tageszeitung newspaper, 'What would we do ourselves if Germany was occupied? I would defend myself and would use violence ... also in the country of the aggressor.' Mr. Möllemann, a former paratrooper, then accused Mr. Fischer of 'obsequious policies' toward Israel. The FDP chairman, Guido Westerwelle, while expressing disagreement with Mr. Möllemann's use of the term 'state terrorism' to describe Israeli tactics, defended his outspoken deputy's right to speak out, adding that it was unfair to brand him as anti-Semitic merely for criticizing Israeli policies. Pressure on the FDP, however, has also come from such prominent Jewish figures as Shimon Stein, the Israeli ambassador in Berlin, and Paul Spiegel, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany. In an article in the weekly newspaper Jüdische Allgemeine, published in late April, the historian Michael Wolfsohn wrote that 'Jews in Germany should consider calling for an election boycott of the FDP.' While there are too few Jews in Germany for such a boycott to affect the Sept. 22 election result, Mr. Wolfsohn wrote, it would help damage the FDP's image and perhaps encourage a change of course."

Anti-Semitism in Europe,
The Economist (UK), May 3, 2002
"It has become an article of faith in much of the American press that anti-Semitism in Europe is surging and that age-old hatred of Jews, after a post-Holocaust period of silence and shame, is once again coming to the surface ... . Does this mean that anti-Semitism of a deep-seated kind is rising or that Jewish fears of a return to the horrors of the 1930s are well founded? No. There is never room for complacency. The fears are understandable but should not be exaggerated. True, since the Palestinians’ second intifada against Israel began in autumn 2000 and, more notably, since the uprising intensified this year, synagogues and other Jewish buildings have been attacked in Belgium, Britain and especially in France ... .France, in particular, is singled out as fundamentally anti-Semitic, partly because of its long-standing friendship with Arab states at the expense of Israel ... . Pollsters suggest that anti-Semitism is only slightly more common among the mainstream right than on the left. In the current government, Jews hold several important portfolios (for finance, European affairs, education and health, among others). The Socialists’ secretary-general is Jewish. So is a candidate to take over as the their party leader. Few analysts put Mr Le Pen’s success down even partly to anti-Semitism. French Jews themselves are divided over whether, French Muslims apart, anti-Semitism is rising. In Britain, too, Jews, who (loosely defined) number around 300,000, have prospered in all walks of life, suffering few of the impediments that slowed advancement in the past. Politically once mostly on the left, many Jews moved to the right during Margaret Thatcher’s and John Major’s time in power. Britons of Jewish background were appointed to such top jobs as chancellor of the exchequer and secretary for defence, foreign and home affairs. With Tony Blair, who is popular in Israel, many Jews have returned to a Labour Party that has shifted to the centre. Britons of Jewish descent are well represented in Parliament, and better than ever in the now largely appointed House of Lords, where they hold around a tenth of the seats. Such success has bred no discernible resentment. The most striking phenomenon, however, is the steady shift of sympathy away from Israel, especially on the left. Last month an opinion poll showed that only 14% said they were more sympathetic to Israel than to the Palestinian Authority, while 28% sympathised more with the Palestinians; Britons overwhelmingly and in equal measure disliked Ariel Sharon, Israel’s prime minister, and the Palestinians’ Yasser Arafat. Such views sharply diverge from those in the United States. Some 39% of Britons favoured economic or other sanctions against Israel, compared with 33% against the Palestinian Authority ... Criticism of Israel’s government does not, of course, equal anti-Semitism."

What Israelis Are Saying, by Dennis Prager,
World Net Daily, May 7, 2002
"I have just returned from a week in Israel. In addition to broadcasting my syndicated radio show, I also brought a crew to make a documentary on Israelis in a time of terror. I asked Israelis of every background these questions: Why do you think that, with the exception of the United States, Israel is alone in the world? Do you walk around afraid? What is your primary feeling with regard to Arabs? This is what I heard: With regard to Israel's isolation, there were two overwhelming responses. About half of the respondents said that it is ultimately the fate of Jews to be alone. Religious Israelis attributed this to the burdens of being the Chosen People. One pretty, young, religious woman standing at a bus stop in downtown Jerusalem, the area most hit by terror, just smiled and said matter-of-factly, 'We are an am s'gulah, a treasured people.' Nor were religious Israelis alone in attributing Israel's aloneness to its being Jewish. Many of the less religious and even secular attributed Israel's isolation to its Jewish nature and the anti-Semitism Israel therefore arouses. The other half of the respondents said that they could not explain Israel's isolation. One Israeli after another said that the almost universal condemnation of Israel was utterly irrational."

Jewish Group Urges Hollywood to Shun Cannes Film Fest,
Washington Post, May 8, 2002
"A leading Jewish organization is urging Hollywood figures to reconsider their plans to attend the Cannes Film Festival this month, citing a recent series of anti-Semitic attacks in France. In full-page ads in trade newspapers this week, the West Coast chapter of the American Jewish Congress compared the situation in contemporary France to the climate 60 years ago, when the anti-Semitic Vichy government was in power and Hitler stalked the rest of Europe ... The French reacted angrily to the advertisement, calling it a distortion of the situation in their country. "I'm sick and tired of these alleged accusations that France is a country of anti-Semitism," said Jean-Luc Sibiude, the consul general for France in Los Angeles. "I'm especially sick and tired with the analogy to the Vichy situation." He called the campaign 'totally unjustified' ... Sibiude accused American Jewish organizations of "real aggressiveness" compared with French Jewish organizations which, he said, put episodes of violence in context. 'The leaders of the French community all agree that the situation of violence in France has nothing to do with the situation in the Vichy regime, or before the Second World War,' he said. 'It's a spillover of the Israeli-Palestinian unrest in Israel and the occupied territories.'"

Book That Fans the Flames of Anti-Semitism Ignites New Conflict,
Minnesota State University, Mankato Home Page (from Sun-Sentinel, South Florida), September 7, 2000
"Nearly a century after its publication, the world's most evil book continues to cause mischief. In April, Internet booksellers Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com took the unprecedented step of slapping a disclaimer on their Web sites regarding the notorious anti-Semitic forgery, 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.' This followed a massive e-mail protest and an investigation by the Anti-Defamation League, a prominent national Jewish organization. The 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion,' concocted by the Czarist secret police in 1903, details a plot by Jews to take over the world. Before World War II, it inspired anti-Semites around the world - including Adolf Hitler and Henry Ford, who arranged for its publication in the United States. It lost most of its power and influence in the Holocaust's aftermath, but between the world wars 'The Protocols' was reportedly the most widely published volume in the world except for the Bible; it contributed directly to the climate of Judeophobia that enabled the Nazis to kill 6 million Jews in the Final Solution. And this was despite being conclusively proved a forgery as early as 1921. While 'The Protocols' is taken seriously only by hate groups today, Jews understandably remain touchy on the subject, as Amazon and Barnes & Noble discovered this spring. Before that, the book was being sold with a note from the publisher implying its historical authenticity. That has been removed, replaced with a warning from the Anti-Defamation League. Both Internet booksellers continue to sell the book, but Jewish critics - or at least the ADL - are satisfied with their quick and sensitive response in clearly labeling 'The Protocols' as hate literature. 'Some people believe they shouldn't sell the book at all,' says Myrna Sheinbaum, spokeswoman for the ADL in New York. 'But we don't tell people what to sell. The way you counteract bad speech is with good speech. But clearly if they choose to sell the book, the public should know what it is.' That is why the ADL wanted the book annotated on the Web sites, Sheinbaum says, and both Barnes & Noble and Amazon were cooperative."

Fear of Being Accused,
Hartford Courant, Editorial, May 5, 2002
"Most Americans don't think twice about disagreeing, sometimes vehemently, with their government's policies. Objecting to President Bush's domestic or international agenda does not make one an America hater. Yet when it comes to Israel, criticizing its government's action frequently leads to ugly charges of anti-Semitism. This quickly shuts off - or discourages from starting - a debate on a key foreign policy issue that any democratic society should find healthy. Those who maintain that the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza is wrong do not deserve to be tarred as haters of Israel. All those who support the Palestinian cause are not automatically anti-Semites. Neither are all who believe that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon should be charged with war crimes."

Antisemitic Riot at San Francisco State University,
Jerusalem Post, May 16, 2002
" The university president is so fed-up with the hate-filled atmosphere on the Bay Area campus that he has asked the local district attorney's office to help bring pro-Palestinian hate-mongers to justice. The May 7 incident received widespread press attention after an e-mail was circulated by Prof. Laurie Zoloth, director of the Jewish studies program at SFSU ... After approaching Dean of Students Penny Saffold, who called the San Francisco Police, pro-Israel demonstrators were marched to the campus Hillel House under police protection and a guard was posted at the door. Zoloth also described what life is like for Jewish students and faculty at SFSU, noting her despair at the emergence of posters around campus equating Zionism with racism and Jews with Nazis, and pictures of cans of soup labeled 'Canned Palestinian Children Meat, slaughtered according to Jewish rites under American license.' 'This is not civic discourse, this is not free speech, and this is the Weimar Republic with brown shirts it cannot control,' she wrote. After staying silent for nearly a week, university president Robert Corrigan posted a statement condemning the incident on SFSU's Web site on Monday. But in a move that Jeffrey Ross, ADL director of campus/higher education affairs, praised as a positive departure from many campuses' public silence on anti-Semitic incidents, Corrigan noted a request to the office of District Attorney Terence Hallinan to assign a member of its hate crimes unit to work with SFSU and consider bringing legal action against certain students."

The ADL Spy Case Is Over, But the Struggle Continues,
Counterpunch, February 25, 2002
[The Anti-Defamation is the foremost Jewish organization -- with a budget of nearly $50 million dollars a year -- founded to fight anti-Semitism]
"In 1993, the District of Attorney of San Francisco released 700 pages of documents implicating the Anti-Defamation League, an organization that claims to be a defender of civil rights, in a vast spying operation directed against American citizens who were opposed to Israel's policies in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza and to the apartheid policies of the government of South Africa and passing on information to both governments. Under great political pressure, Smith later dropped the charges. One wonders what would have happened had an Arab-American or Muslim organization been caught spying with the names of 10,000 people and 600 organizations in their files. Not only were critics of Israel under ADL's surveillance,including thousands of Arab-Americans, but labor organizations such as the San Francisco Labor Council, ILWU Local 10, and the Oakland Educational Association, and civil rights groups such as the NAACP, Irish Northern Aid, International Indian Treaty Council and the Asian Law Caucus were also found in the "pinko" files of ADL's undercover operative, Roy Bullock ... Almost a decade later the suit has been settled with a significant cash payment by the ADL and, we wish to emphasize, without our signing any agreement for confidentiality which the ADL had previously demanded. Our efforts to expose the organization's work in defending the policies of the Israeli government and stifling its opponents will continue, using new information gained in the pursuance of the suit. The ADL spent millions of dollars preventing this case from coming to trial through costly appeals and exploiting the judicial process but, at the end, it had to give up ... During the course of the suit we learned that: [Roy] Bullock, the ADL's top 'fact finder' had sold confidential information to a South African intelligence agent in San Francisco for $15,000. Ten days before he was assassinated in South Africa, Chris Hani, the man who would have succeeded Nelson Mandela as the country's president, was trailed by Bullock on a trip through California who reported on it to the South African government. ADL agent Roy Bullock was discovered to have a floor plan of murdered Los Angeles Arab American leader Alex Odeh and a key to his office. The ADL supplied confidential information to foreign governments that it obtained from police and federal agencies in the US, Having infiltrated the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), the ADL's 'fact finder' performed a COINTEL-type operation at the convention of the Holocaust-denying Journal of Historical Review when he put ADC's literature on convention tables as a way of smearing the committee for 'working with anti- Semites.' The ADL has organized to silence and eliminate all critical voices of Israel from academia and the media and has targeted professors , particularly those who are African American, and who are critical of Israel. That at least 51% of the activities of its San Francisco office were devoted to defending Israel. The ADL provided secret files to police agencies when these police agencies were prevented by law from collecting the files themselves, Many questions must still be answered about the activities of the ADL and it's non-profit status as an 'education organization'".

Swedes, Belgians Told Not to Vote for Israel in Eurovision
,
Haaretz, May 26, 2002
"The Belgian and Swedish Jewish communities were left fuming Saturday night after their local TV presenters advised viewers not to vote for Israel's entry in the Eurovision song contest, held in the Estonian capital of Tallinn. Israel's entry, 'Light a Candle,' was sung by Sarit Hadad. Swedes watching the national TV1 station said that the presenters announced before Hadad appeared that Israel was not even meant to take part in the contest 'because of what it is doing to the Palestinians.' The Swedish jury did not award any points to Israel. Belgian viewers were also advised not to vote for Israel. Its jury however awarded Hadad two points. Announcers on Flemish TV told their viewers not to be duped into thinking that Hadad's white dress meant that Israel wanted peace, Israel Radio reported Sunday."

N.J. Gov. Seeks Authority to Fire Poet, Newsday, October 6, 2002
"Gov. James E. McGreevey is seeking the power to fire the state's poet laureate, who has refused repeated calls to resign after writing a Sept. 11 memorial poem criticized as anti-Semitic. Legislation giving the governor the authority to end Amiri Baraka's two-year term could be introduced as early as Monday, McGreevey said Sunday. Last month, McGreevey demanded Baraka's resignation after the poet read 'Somebody Blew Up America' at an August festival. Then he tried to fire him, but the attorney general ruled he did not have the authority. The poem, written in October 2001, refers to an oft-repeated but long-discredited rumor, saying: 'Who told 4,000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers to stay home that day? Why did Sharon stay away?'"

No charges filed against Phinney,

"No charges will be filed against Laurie Phinney, an Avery School teacher's aide, following a clerk's hearing in Dedham District Court yesterday. Phinney was accused of making anti-Semitic remarks to her neighbor, Patricia Schneider, according to police reports from June 8 and 11. Officers Richard Huyler and Mark Black filed a report of malicious damage and a broken window. Phinney denied making the remarks. Norfolk Assistant District Attorney Max Levy sought to charge Phinney with criminal civil rights violations. The court clerk found insufficient evidence to support the charge, said John Gibbons, Phinney's attorney."


University Faculty Deny Allegations Of Anti-Semitism Group Issues Rejection Of Harvard President’s Claims,
Daily Californian, October 4, 2002
"Twenty-one UC Berkeley faculty members signed a statement this week rejecting allegations that they support an anti-Semitic policy. The statement responded to remarks by [Jewish] Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who implied that divestment proponents, who call for an end to university and national investments in Israel, are anti-Semitic. In an address to a Massachusetts church two weeks ago, Summers said 'profoundly anti-Israel views are increasingly finding support in progressive intellectual communities,' adding that 'serious and thoughtful people' are advocating anti-Semitism. But UC Berkeley faculty members who support divestment denied their positions were motivated out of anti-Semitism."

U.S. Academic Mafia Targets Truth-teller [Daniel] Pipes,
Jewish World Review, October 9, 2002
"American Jews have spent a lot of time worrying about the difficulties facing college students in recent years. As a result, American Jews have put their money and ingenuity to work on behalf of programs would combat assimilation on campus. We have poured more funds into Hillel organizations. The Birthright Israel project was created to bring students to Israel for their first trip to the Jewish state. And philanthropists have endowed Jewish studies and Holocaust-education programs that have proliferated across academia. All of these initiatives have had positive effects on Jewish college life. But despite this, we have witnessed an upsurge in anti-Israel activity across North American campuses that has mixed traditional anti-Semitism with the vicious protest tactics of the far left. While academia has long been a stronghold of the left, the main focus of collegiate extremists has rarely been on Israel in the past. But Jewish students, parents and concerned citizens are only just now coming to realize that there is no greater stronghold for hatred of Israel than American colleges and universities."

Investigation: Elections Official Accused Of Anti-Semitism Community; Relations Coordinator's Background, Beliefs Questioned,
Channel 10 (Florida), October 9, 2002
"An employee working for the Broward County supervisor of elections may find himself having difficulty with more than helping manage the election, Channel 10 News has learned ... Channel 10 reporter Jeff Weinsier has been looking into [African-American Jimmy] Davis' background and performance. Here's a sample of Davis' writing that Weinsier found in the Westside Gazette published in late 2000: 'How dare the Jews ask or have the nerve to demand an apology or compensation from their oppressors.' 'The Jews must turn that money over to blacks because they accumulated their wealth through the slave trade.' And later: 'It is difficult for me to find sympathy for what the Jews are calling a holocaust' ... Channel 10 News has learned that soon after Davis was hired, there were problems on the job. Elections officials found what they describe as anti-Semitic e-mails on Davis' computer in the supervisor's office. After less than two weeks on the job, personnel records show Davis' pay was cut, he lost his supervisor's position, and he was demoted. Weinsier was told that the reason Davis was not fired was because the evidence against Davis was 'second and third hand.'"

Patricia Wanniski Is Not Anti-Semitic. To: Mortimer Zuckerman, Very Important Jewish Leader. From: Patricia Koyce Wanniski Re: How Much of a Zionist Must I Be?, Polyconomics, October 10, 2002
"I believe myself to be fair-minded. So, it was quite a shock when I began writing websites that were critical of Ariel Sharon's Likud government, that I received extremely angry feedback accusing me of anti-Semitism. This has led me, over time, to ponder the question of what is anti-Semitism, exactly? I believe this is a legitimate question, and one that needs to be addressed in a post-9/11 world ... Mr. [Morton] Zuckerman [Jewish owner and editor of U.S. News and World Report and founder of the Zionist Forum], you seem to also equate anti-Semitism with any criticism of the Israeli government, calling it 'anti-Zionism.' Is this the new standard?"

Selling anti-Semitism; The "new anti-Semitism", whether real or imagined, is the only sales pitch Israel has that still works, writes Jonathan Cook,
Al-Ahram (Cairo), October 10-16, 2002
"Hardly a day passes in Israel without another lengthy feature in the Hebrew press documenting the rapid reemergence of anti-Semitism in Europe, with France and Britain invariably singled out as the worst culprits. For many months Israel's liberal daily newspaper Haaretz has included a special compilation of reports on the 'New Anti-Semitism' on its website. Some commentators have pointed out that Israel's current preoccupation with anti-Semitism dangerously conflates two separate, and very different, trends: the first a harsher ideological climate in Europe towards Israel's military assault on the Palestinians; and the second a wave of attacks on synagogues and Jews, often committed by Muslim youths angry at what they see as Western indifference to this assault. The blurring of one, legitimate criticism of Israeli actions, with the other, illegitimate retaliation against Jews, serves a useful purpose for Israel. It makes it difficult, at times nigh impossible, to give voice to the daily suffering of millions of Palestinians under occupation without invoking the label "anti-Semite" from a muscular Zionist lobby in Europe and the United States."

Campus Collision on Israel Campaign for Divestiture of Investments Stirs Debate on Bias, Academic Freedom,
The Washington Post, Oct 12, 2002
"Students and faculty at a growing number of universities are joining a fledgling movement to pressure schools into selling their holdings in companies that do business in Israel, prompting a counter-campaign among Jewish groups that consider the effort part of a creeping tide of anti-Semitism on campus. The divestiture drive is designed as a way to protest Israeli treatment of Palestinians, but Jews and others say that by adopting tactics used to oppose apartheid in the 1970s and 1980s, the movement not so subtly paints the Israeli government as racist and oppressive. 'What this movement does is compare Israel to South Africa. That is hideous,' said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. 'There is a greater tolerance on the college campus than elsewhere for expressions of anti-Semitism' ... 'This charge of anti-Semitism is utter nonsense. It is really a form of paranoia to deflect attention away from Israeli human rights abuses and war crimes,' said Edward Said, a Columbia University English professor who helped launch a divestiture campaign at the school. 'Israel has been in occupation of Palestinian territory for 35 years. . . Arab American activists said that incidents of taunting and other harassment of Jews pale in comparison to the wave of anti-Muslim incidents -- and suspicion -- that has swept campuses since last year's terrorist attacks in the United States. Moreover, they say, criticism of Israel, particularly amid the free flow of ideas that is characteristic of most college campuses, does not equate to anti-Semitism."

IU's Jewish Center Denies Magazine's Pig's Head Report Director Said Pig's Head Never Left At Door,
The Indy Channel, October 14, 2002
"The director of a Jewish center at Indiana University said a U.S. News & World Report columnist's account of a pig's head being left at its door is inaccurate. The column by John Leo in the magazine's Oct. 14 issue and syndicated to newspapers across the country cited as his first example of anti-Semitism on campus 'a pig's head left at the door of the Hillel building at Indiana University.' Rabbi Sue Shifron, who has been at the Helene G. Simon Hillel Center for 13 years, said: 'I've had tons of calls from people. ... I can definitely, without a doubt, say it did not happen here.' In the column, Leo ponders whether the anti-Jewish sentiments are growing on American campuses. Leo told The Indianapolis Star, which published the column on Monday, that his information came from a story published in August by The Jerusalem Post. 'All I know is it was in The Jerusalem Post,' he said. 'If that's what you got, that's what you got. We'll certainly try to check it ourselves.'"

Madonna music video stirs unease among Jews,
Jerusalem Post, October 16, 2002
"A new music video by pop star Madonna is generating controversy among American Jews because of its use of religious Jewish symbols, New York's Newsday reports. The video features the blond singer with Hebrew letters tattooed on her arm, wearing leather straps strikingly similar to tefillin (phylacteries), and getting electrocuted in a chair covered with Hebrew writing ... Liz Rosenberg, Madonna's spokesman, said, 'Madonna doesn't like to explain her videos in great detail, but I think there are many messages there and her intention in making this video was honorable.'"

N.J. Poet Strikes Back at Critics,
By Michael Weissenstein, Newsday, October 17, 2002
"Stung by accusations of anti-Semitism, New Jersey poet laureate [and African-American] Amiri Baraka struck back at critics from the stage of a downtown poetry cafe, saying he wanted to know 'why the Anti-Defamation League is not registered as an agent of a foreign power.' The Jewish civil rights organization and the governor of New Jersey have called for Baraka's resignation over his poem, 'Somebody Blew Up America,' which implies that Israel had prior knowledge of the Sept. 11 attacks. In a nearly hour-long monologue and question-and-answer session Thursday at the Bowery Poetry Club, Baraka criticized Israeli and Jewish groups' involvement in U.S. politics and reiterated that he would not give up his post ... New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey has sought Baraka's resignation as official state poet. A pending bill in the state legislature would give the state Council for the Humanities authority to remove the laureate. The title cannot currently be rescinded. Baraka also blasted McGreevey for appointing Golan Cipel, an Israeli national, as his unpaid liaison to New Jersey Jews. 'In New Jersey, there is an Israeli national shaping the opinion of the state's Jewish community,' Baraka said."

Polish magazine under fire for wartime memoir,
Canadian Jewish News, July 12, 2001
"The editor of a Polish magazine will meet this month with representatives of Canadian Jewish Congress to discuss an article that Congress believes repeats anti-Semitic stereotypes of Jews. The article, which appeared in the February edition of Miedzy Nami magazine, is presented as part of the memoirs of author Chris Gladun's late mother, Janina Sulkowska-Gladun. The memoir repeatedly refers to Jews in a way that 'tars the entire Jewish community,' said Len Rudner, Congress' director of community relations. In a letter to Jolanta Bugajski, editor and publisher of Miedzy Nami, Rudner points out the article,which reflects Sulkowska-Gladun's memories of the Soviet occupation of Poland from 1939-41, describes members of the local Communist party as almost exclusively Jewish. The memoir repeatedly refers to Jews as supporters of the Communist regime and it alleges the NKVD (the Soviet secret police), aided by Jews, decided the fate of its victims. It also states innocent people were in fear of arrest because of a Jewish militia ... 'I certainly stand by what my mother wrote and her experiences,' Gladun said. 'I take umbrage at any accusations [the article] is anti-Semitic .... 'If [Bugajski] fails to understand the damage this kind of unsubstantiated claims make to the Jewish community, we will have to see what legal remedies are available to us,' [Rudner] added".

Academic accused of promoting anti-semitism,
Guardian (UK), October 25, 2002
"A row has broken out between a Birmingham University lecturer and Jewish groups over a personal website which the Jewish groups say promotes anti-semitism. The Board of Deputies of British Jews, has written to the university demanding that they remove links between Ms Blackwell's official university website and her personal pages. They say links from the site take you to images glorifying suicide bombing and comparing Israel with Nazi Germany. Sue Blackwell, an English lecturer, today defended her site saying: 'I would not link to a terrorist organisation - there is no link to a Hamas website. If I've inadvertently linked to something that glorifies suicide bombers I would remove it immediately. Nobody has yet told me which one leads to these images. I think these allegations are groundless and malicious.' A spokesperson for the Board of Deputies said: 'Over the past year, Jewish students have felt increasingly threatened by anti-Israel and anti-semitic propaganda on campus which has directly resulted in an increase in campus anti-semitism. As an academic, Ms Blackwell has a responsibility to the truth and it is sad that she has allowed herself to become a mouthpiece for recognised anti-Israel groups.'"

Ad says Cleland silent on anti-Semitism,
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, October 26, 2002
"More than 100 Jewish Georgians have signed an advertisement scolding U.S. Max Cleland (D-Ga.) for not condemning [African-Americans] U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney and state Rep. Billy McKinney's 'anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements' during their re-election campaigns last summer. The full-page ad in Friday's edition of the weekly Atlanta Jewish Times, which has a circulation of 25,000, endorses Cleland challenger Republican Saxby Chambliss. The ad includes a picture of the Israeli flag at the top next to the headline: 'The Jewish Community Supports Saxby Chambliss for U.S. Senate.' Jewish business leaders, local entertainment figures and politicians signed the ad, including Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, who could not be reached for comment Friday."

Why The Rise In Anti-Semitism In Europe?,
by Alfred M. Lilienthal, Palestine Chronicle, October 27 2002
"Any time that we hear that Jews are 'suddenly' being persecuted, we have to ask what is really going on. Are their opponents attacking them only because they are Jews? An op-ed piece by Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, entitled 'Europe's Anti-Israel Excuse' appeared in the Washington Post on June 26, 2002. Foxman claims to believe that the growing criticism in Europe of Israeli misconduct somehow equals a resurgence of anti-Semitism similar to the dark Hitler era. For that matter, he makes an even far wider claim that this supposed new rise in the old anti-Semitism is somehow central to all human experience: Throughout history a constant barometer for judging the level of hate and exclusion vs. the level of freedom and democracy in any society has been anti-Semitism -- how a country treats its Jewish citizens. Jews have been persecuted and delegitimized throughout history because of their perceived differences. Any society that can understand and accept Jews is typically more democratic, more open and accepting of 'the other.' This predictor has held true throughout the ages.' Here in Foxman’s own words, we have a prime example of the kind of egocentric and grandiose preoccupation with his Jewishness that tends to give other Jews a bad name. What hogwash that throughout all of human history and throughout all the societies that have ever existed, the world has somehow revolved around the status of 'The Jews!' This claim of unique Jewish specialness is preposterous and offensive. If the Irish, the Chinese, the Arabs, the Catholics, the Buddhists, or any other ethnic or religious group made such a ridiculous universal claim about themselves, we would likely find it both disgusting and laughable. Foxman makes this absurd statement, but if we dare to say it is absurd, immediately he would counter that we are anti-Semitic to say so."

The Wages of Hate. Anti-semitism and the war,
Andrew Sullivan, October 2002
"A student-written article in the Yale Daily News last week, the paper for the elite American university, was typical fare. It was a piece by a precocious first-year student criticizing what he regards as the anti-Semitism tolerated at the U.N. The response, however, was far from typical. He'd touched a nerve. In the comments section, posted online next to the article, a torrent of anger was unleashed. Here's one respondent's comments: 'I recently attended a forum focusing on the Israeli/Palestinian issue. Both sides made very valid points but there was a moment of heated exchange when the pro-Israel side initiated the "anti-semite" slur and completely ended it for me. I am sick and tired of Jewish people always smearing those that merely disagree with their views as 'evil'. I never thought I'd say this but a lot of what the so-called "white supremacists" are saying are proving to be more accurate than I feel comfortable admitting.' Sympathy for the arguments of 'so-called white supremacists'? At Yale? The comment was not anonymous. Now there's always scope for nut-cases venting on the web. But the tenor of the discussion on a Yale website was certainly something new."

Paint It Black,
by Max Hastings, Toronto Globe and Mail, October 19, 2002
Focus, p. F3
"For nine years as editor of the [British] Daily Telegraph, Max Hastings had to navigate the politics and personal passions of the paper's Canadian-born proprietor. In this exclusive excerpt from his compelling new book [An Inside Story, by Max Hastings (Macmillan, 2002), he offers an inside look at how [non-Jewish media mogul] Conrad Black does business ...As the years went by, [Black] also developed increasingly strong views on the Middle East question, and thus on our coverage of it. Especially after his purchase of the Jerusalem Post, Conrad showed himself an energetic supporter of the Israeli cause against that of the Palestinians. Conrad and I had several sharp exchanges, after pieces appeared in the Telegraph which he deemed anti-Israel or even anti-Semitic. One of Conrad's favourite terms of approbation was to describe a friend or colleague as 'giving me a high comfort level.' Conversely, when one of our writers erred in his eyes, I knew it was time to hoist storm signals when the chairman declared - with only a nod toward irony or conscious extravagance - that 'this snivelling product of some pinko journalism school administered by the John Pilger/Christopher Hitchens Trust for the propagation of liberal mendacity does not give me a high comfort level, Max.' It was ironic, therefore, when one of the major rows of our time together descended on Conrad because he was accused of publishing anti-Semitic material in one of his own organs. In November, 1994, a Los Angeles 'stringer' for the Telegraph, William Cash, wrote a piece for The Spectator - which the Telegraph had purchased from Algy Cluff in 1991 - suggesting that Hollywood was a Jewish town. In the wake of its publication, the roof fell in. A long roll-call of Hollywood luminaries headed by Tom Cruise, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand and Kevin Costner wrote letters to Conrad and an open letter to The Spectator, and delivered diatribes to anyone who would listen, denouncing the Cash piece as a disgraceful piece of journalism. 'We have seen it all before, from the Inquisition in 13th-century Spain to the Holocaust of 20th-century Germany,' ran one of the less hyperbolic passages of their Spectator letter. 'When, to the editors of magazines like the Spectator, racist cant becomes indistinguishable from thoughtful commentary, it should sound a loud warning that we have not progessed so far after all.' I was sitting in Conrad's office while he took a call from an enraged Jack Valenti, speaking on behalf of the Hollywood Motion Picture Association, about the piece. They were demanding space not only in the Spectator, but also in the Daily Telegraph, to denounce the author. It was one of the few moments in my time with Conrad when I saw him look seriously rattled. I did not think the Cash piece represented memorable - perhaps not even tasteful - journalism, but nor did I believe that it deserved the ludicrous overreaction of the Hollywood community. Their demands, especially for space in the Telegraph, seemed absurd. I urged that they should be given a right of reply in The Spectator, but otherwise told to take a running jump.' Conrad said: 'You don't understand, Max. My entire interests in the United States and internationally could be seriously damaged by this.' The complaints eventually subsided. So too did the row, as I was growing to understand that all rows eventually do. [Note: the assertions by William Cash in The Spectator are, of course, true -- see here for more about the Cash incident, and a long, documented investigation about Jewish hegemony in Hollywood]

At Canadian campus rally, speakers assail anti-Semitism,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Oct. 20, 2002
"One month after pro-Palestinian demonstrators prevented [former right-wing Israel prime minister] Benjamin Netanyahu from speaking at Montreal’s Concordia University, more than 500 people assembled on another Canadian campus for a forum about the Concordia riot. The rally came as Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal asked Concordia to reinvite the former Israeli prime minister to speak at the school. Bob Rae, a former premier of Ontario, was the headline speaker at the rally, which was organized by an interfaith group called Canadians Against Anti-Semitism and filled the largest auditorium at the University of Toronto. Like the speakers who followed him, Rae linked the Concordia disturbances of Sept. 9 to a growing international climate of hate against Jews and Israel — expressed in union resolutions, divestment campaigns, boycotts of Israeli intellectuals, and pamphlets, posters and pronouncements that appear to meet every definition of hate speech."

How to shut up your critics with a single word,
by Robert Fisk, The Independent (UK), October 21, 2002
"Thank God, I often say, for the Israeli press. For where else will you find the sort of courageous condemnation of Israel's cruel and brutal treatment of the Palestinians? Where else can we read that Moshe Ya'alon, Ariel Sharon's new chief of staff, described the 'Palestinian threat' as 'like a cancer – there are all sorts of solutions to cancerous manifestations. For the time being, I am applying chemotherapy.' Where else can we read that the Israeli Herut Party chairman, Michael Kleiner, said that 'for every victim of ours there must be 1,000 dead Palestinians'. Where else can we read that Eitan Ben Eliahu, the former Israeli Air Force commander, said that 'eventually we will have to thin out the number of Palestinians living in the territories'. Where else can we read that the new head of Mossad, General Meir Dagan – a close personal friend of Mr Sharon – believes in 'liquidation units', that other Mossad men regard him as a threat because 'if Dagan brings his morality to the Mossad, Israel could become a country in which no normal Jew would want to live'. You will have to read all this in Ma'ariv, Ha'aretz or Yediot Ahronot because in much of the Western world, a vicious campaign of slander is being waged against any journalist or activist who dares to criticise Israeli policies or those that shape them. The all-purpose slander of 'anti-Semitism' is now used with ever-increasing promiscuity against anyone – people who condemn the wickedness of Palestinian suicide bombings every bit as much as they do the cruelty of Israel's repeated killing of children – in an attempt to shut them up. [Jewish academics] Daniel Pipes and Martin Kramer of the Middle East Forum now run a website in the United States to denounce academics who are deemed to have shown 'hatred of Israel'. One of the eight professors already on this contemptible McCarthyite list – it is grotesquely called 'Campus Watch' – committed the unpardonable sin of signing a petition in support of the Palestinian scholar Edward Said. Pipes wants students to inform on professors who are guilty of 'campus anti-Semitism'. The University of North Carolina is being targeted – apparently because freshmen were required to read passages from the Koran – along with Harvard where, like students in many other US universities, undergraduates are demanding that their colleges disinvest in companies that sell weapons to Israel. In some cases, American universities – which happily disinvested in tobacco companies – have now taken the step of blocking all student access to their records of investment."

What is Antisemitism?,
By Michael Neumann, Counterpunch, June 4, 2002
"Every once in a while, some left-wing Jewish writer will take a deep breath, open up his (or her) great big heart, and tell us that criticism of Israel or Zionism is not antisemitism. Silently they congratulate themselves on their courage. With a little sigh, they suppress any twinge of concern that maybe the goyim--let alone the Arabs--can't be trusted with this dangerous knowledge. Sometimes it is gentile hangers-on, whose ethos if not their identity aspires to Jewishness, who take on this task. Not to be utterly risqué, they then hasten to remind us that antisemitism is nevertheless to be taken very seriously. That Israel, backed by a pronounced majority of Jews, happens to be waging a race war against the Palestinians is all the more reason we should be on our guard. Who knows? it might possibly stir up some resentment! I take a different view. I think we should almost never take antisemitism seriously, and maybe we should have some fun with it. I think it is particularly unimportant to the Israel-Palestine conflict, except perhaps as a diversion from the real issues. I will argue for the truth of these claims; I also defend their propriety. I don't think making them is on a par with pulling the wings off flies. 'Antisemitism', properly and narrowly speaking, doesn't mean hatred of semites; that is to confuse etymology with definition. It means hatred of Jews. But here, immediately, we come up against the venerable shell-game of Jewish identity: 'Look! We're a religion! No! a race! No! a cultural entity! Sorry--a religion!' When we tire of this game, we get suckered into another: 'anti-Zionism is antisemitism!'quickly alternates with: 'Don't confuse Zionism with Judaism! How dare you, you antisemite!' ... The more things get to count as antisemitic, the less awful antisemitism is going to sound. This happens because, while no one can stop you from inflating definitions, you still don't control the facts ... Israel is building a racial state, not a religious one."

An uncomfortable kernel of truth,
Israel Insider, October 31, 2002
"For Ireland's reputation [for no "antisemitism"] is very much undeserved. Historically, anti-Semitism was as prevalent here as it was elsewhere in Europe, differing only in its emphasis on issues of religion rather than race. The Jews were seen as the enduring enemies of Christianity ... The fact that there was no serious anti-Semitic violence in Ireland after 1904 had less to do with national virtue than with the fact that there were very few Jews to conduct violence against. And the Irish authorities were determined to keep it that way ... In an era of de-colonization, Ireland began to identify increasingly with the refugees as victims of an 'imperialist enterprise' and, after 1967, this was easily transmuted into support for Palestinian 'national' demands. This led Ireland to adopt an increasingly critical position with regard to Israel in international forums, culminating in its becoming in 1980 the first EU country to recognize the PLO and a Palestinian 'right to self-determination' ... But does the persistence of anti-Israel feelings in Ireland constitute anti-Semitism? Certainly, it seems at times as if the Irish will always find a stick with which to beat Israel. That Irish anti-Zionism sprang fully formed from the head of Catholic anti-Semitism in undeniable but over the years it succeeded, for the most part, in freeing itself from purely anti-Jewish prejudice. However, while it has been 30 years since the last significant anti-Semitic scandal, antipathy towards the Jews does still exist. The last major survey published in 1996 found declining yet significant levels of anti-Semitism, most notably in rural areas, and these do inform attitudes towards Israel today. The tone of some of the criticism leveled at Israel since September 2000 is clear evidence of this and it is doubtful whether the next survey will show a continued decline in anti-Jewish feeling. However, residual anti-Semitism cannot explain the scale and intensity of anti-Israeli feeling in Ireland today. Mr. Vance's contention that Nationalist Ireland, as a "financial, logistical, moral and political" supporter of the IRA, almost instinctively backs the PLO is certainly broadly true of Northern Ireland where the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign seems little more than an arm of Sinn Fein and pro-Palestinian flags and murals adorn nationalist areas ... The Intifada, therefore, is considered wholly legitimate; Marwan Barghouti is seen as a Michael Collins-type hero, his Tanzim terrorists as 'freedom fighters.' The IDF play the role of the hated British army. Today, such perceptions lie at the heart of Irish hostility to Israel. When combined with both a residual and now growing anti-Semitism and an impossibly biased media, the result is a nationally unanimous view of the Middle East conflict, one based on an almost universal condemnation of Israel and unconditional support for the Palestinians."

Storm over 'Elders of Zion' Anti-Semitic series on Egypt TV stirs outrage,
San Francisco Chronicle, October 31, 2002
"Muhammed Sobhi seems genuinely puzzled by all the fuss being made about his latest project -- a 'historical' series about a Jewish plot to rule the world due to start airing during the television-intensive holy month of Ramadan. 'The whole issue doesn't deserve five minutes on the headline news,' said the popular Egyptian actor-playwright. 'The bigger issues we should talk about are the events in Palestine and the decision to attack Iraq.' Nevertheless, Sobhi, the Egyptian government and the country's media and entertainment structure find themselves in the center of a gathering storm. The reason: Sobhi's series appears to take much of its inspiration from the infamous 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion,' the alleged blueprint for Jewish global domination almost universally regarded in the West as an anti-Semitic fraud first perpetrated by czarist secret police in 19th century Russia ... The series, funded with private money, is scheduled to begin airing on Egyptian state television early next month, during Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting, when television ratings and ad prices traditionally are at their peak. The fact that the Egyptian government -- the world's second-largest recipient of U.S. aid -- is not only sanctioning but profiting from the series could become a major diplomatic issue ... The U.S. official in Cairo worried that neither Sobhi nor his potential television audience recognize the depth of negative feeling in the West regarding the 'Protocols.' 'There's a line between talking about a Zionist conspiracy, which I know a lot of people out here do believe, and actually talking about the 'Protocols' as an authentic document,' he said."

Press Release: ADL Survey of Five European Countries Finds One in Five Hold Strong Anti-Semitic Sentiments; Majority Believes Canard of Jewish Disloyalty,

European Attitudes Toward Jews: A Five Country Survey of 2,500 -- 500 each in Austria, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland -- was conducted by telephone in the native language of each of the countries September 9-29, 2002 by First International Resources for ADL ... The Findings: ... Of those surveyed: 21% harbor strong anti-Semitic views. 34% in Spain, 23% in Italy, 22% in Switzerland, 19% in Austria, 7% in the Netherlands. 56% believe Jews are more loyal to Israel than their own country. 72% in Spain, 58% in Italy, 54% in Austria, 49% in Switzerland, 48% The Netherlands. 40% believe that Jews have too much power in international financial markets. 71% in Spain. 29% say Jews don't care about anyone but their own kind. Spain and Switzerland 34%. 25% say Jews are more willing than others to use shady practices to get what they want. Spain 33%, Austria 28%, Italy and Switzerland 27%. 49% believe Jews still talk too much about the Holocaust. Spain 57%, Austria 56%, Switzerland 52%, Italy 43%, The Netherlands 35%."

Berliners protest move to put 'Jewish' back into street name,
Drudge Report, November 1, 2002
"Crowds of angry residents in Berlin Friday protested attempts to return a road to its pre-Nazi-era name of Jewish Street, with several shouting, 'The Jews have made us suffer enough.' The protest began peacefully enough Friday afternoon when about 40 people turned out to protest the changing of Kinkel Strasse to Jueden Strasse, which had been approved by the Berlin city council. Local residents, particularly several retailers, said they had not been adequately informed about the name change and they resented the inconvenience of changing business cards and advertisements. The protest turned ugly, however, when representatives of Berlin's Jewish community arrived for the formal name-changing ceremonies. Then there were chants of 'You Jews have had enough say' and 'The Jews have made us suffer enough.' Jewish Community Chairman Alexander Brenner attempted to fend off the attacks as TV camera crews filmed the scene, but as the vehemence rose, he responded, 'You people are siding yourselves with the Nazis with such remarks,' and turned and left."

Will Jewish votes for Dems speed the mainstreaming of anti-Semitic voices?,
Jewish World Review, November 5, 2002
"There are three basic anti-Semitic streams within the Democratic Party. The first is the small but powerful group of good old-fashioned anti-Semites, whose distaste for Jews leads them into admiration for anti-American enemies of Israel. These include David Bonior, former representative Cynthia McKinney (whose defeat by a black opponent enraged most of her colleagues), and former Senator James Abourzek of South Dakota, Tom Daschle's old mentor. This group is unpleasant but not dangerous - though it is arguably more dangerous than the similar kinds of anti-Semites within the Republican Party. Their Republican counterparts - think of someone like George Ball - are less dangerous, because their distaste for Jews is old-fashioned second-rate WASP - a group that is on the wane. The Boniors and McKinneys are far more dangerous because their anti-Semitism is more populist, connected as it is to grassroots anti-Semitic communities within the Black community and the Arab-American population. The second is the small but prominent group of self-proclaimed idealists - whose idealism involves a wish that the United States could be as deeply good as a nation as they themselves are as individuals. And with odd inevitability, this self-regard takes the form of a bitter dislike of Israel. The most prominent such figure is Jimmy Carter, whose statements on Israel since he left the presidency reek of intense personal dislike ... Now, the war against terror has brought a new group surging into prominence within the Democratic Party - the left wing anti-war group. This group is motivated by hatred of Israel, hatred of America, and the inborn affection for bullying and pushing people around that is at the basis of all socialism ... More than any others, they will work to make anti-Semitism respectable among nice people - and even fashionable. The process is beginning now on elite college campuses with the 'Divest from Israel' campaign. It's typical of American Jewish misunderstanding of our enemies that institutions like the ADL have been so obsessed with crèches and campus crusades that they've paid no attention to what is going on at Harvard and Columbia."


Welcome Voice? Harvard invites academic who wants Jews 'shot dead',
by Tom Gross, National Review, November 12, 2002
"Harvard University's English department has invited Tom Paulin — the Oxford poet who has called for the slaughter of U.S. Jews on the West Bank — to deliver 'The Morris Gray Lecture' this Thursday (November 14). The invitation was sent to other faculty heads last week, encouraging them to have their students attend, and an announcement was made on the English department's web page. Earlier this year Paulin, who lectures in 19th- and 20th-century English literature at Oxford University, told the influential Egyptian paper al-Ahram Weekly that what he described as 'Brooklyn-born' Jewish settlers should be 'shot dead.' He said: 'They should be shot dead. I think they are Nazis, racists, I feel nothing but hatred for them.' He added: 'I can understand how suicide bombers feel. . . . I think attacks on civilians in fact boost morale.' Paulin, who has regularly declared that Israel has no right to exist, and recently resigned from Britain's ruling Labour party on the grounds that Tony Blair was heading a 'Zionist government,' is no doubt entitled to his opinion ... The [Jewish] president of Harvard, Larry Summers, who less than two months ago denounced the spread of anti-Semitism in the guise of anti-Zionism at American universities, is said in private to be 'horrified' by the invitation to Paulin, but has made no public comment."

German party fined for funding allegedly anti-Semitic leaflet,
Ha'aretz (Israel), November 13, 2002
"A German opposition party said Wednesay it has been fined 839,000 euros (US$) by parliament for irregular financing of a campaign leaflet that attacked Jewish and Israeli leaders and prompted accusations of anti-Semitism. The penalty matches the amount spent on the leaflet by Juergen Moellemann, who quit as deputy head of the Free Democrats after others in the party blamed the controversy for its poor showing in Sept. 22 national elections. Party officials said they intend to pay the penalty ordered by Parliament President Wolfgang Thierse. Moellemann's leaflet criticizing German Jewish leader and talk show host Michel Friedman as well as Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was sent to more than 8 million homes ... He already sparked outrage in May by saying that Friedman, who criticized his strident stance against Sharon's policies toward the Palestinians, might himself fuel anti-Semitism with his 'intolerant, spiteful style.' Jewish leaders condemned the remark."

Anti-Semitism in Israel Growing Anti-Semitic feelings in Israel growing,
Pravda (Russia), November 19, 2002
"The immigrants, who come to Israel from Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union are considered to be the major reason for the development of anti-Semitic sentiments in Israel. As it has been said, these immigrants basically only have distant relatives who were Jews. The so-called promised land is currently considering restricting immigration from Russia. According to the London newspaper the Sunday Telegraph, the number of racist incidents grows every day in the Jewish state. These incidents include violence and insults, drawing swastika on houses, and desecration of cemeteries. Because of the growing anti-Semitism in Israel, the Israeli government might reconsider it’s immigration policy. Yuli Edelstein, the Minister for Absorption of New Immigrants, was one of the first statesmen who set forth such an idea. The official is concerned about the growth of anti-Semitic sentiments in Israel ... Now, the 'homeland' is thinking over the necessity of inviting people who have distant Jewish relatives. Rabbi Zalman Gilchensky researched anti-Semitic incidents in the 'promised' land. Five hundred such incidents have been registered over the recent year."

Canada accused of failing to fight anti-Semitism. Head of World Jewish Congress assails 'unholy alliance' of leftists, intellectuals,
National Post, November 19, 2002 [Note: the National Post is part of the vast Canadian newspaper chain of avid Zionist Israel Asper]
"The riot at Montreal's Concordia University that prevented former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu from speaking is part of a campaign to delegitimize Israel, says Avi Beker, head of the World Jewish Congress. Avi Beker, secretary-general of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), said yesterday the anti-Semitic campaign is spreading throughout university campuses across North America ... Mr. Beker, who attended a board meeting of the WJC in Ottawa yesterday, also blamed the media for promoting stereotypical racist views of Jews. He criticized Canada for not doing enough to fight anti-Semitism and called on the Chrétien government to take a leading role at the United Nations to focus on human rights abuses in Arab nations. 'What is really shocking is that you have here today an unholy alliance between liberals, intellectuals from the left and the most extremist forces of Islam. It's very hard to comprehend how people who are liberal, people who are intellectuals, are going together with representatives of cultures ... which are so in sharp contrast to human rights in their countries,' Mr. Beker said. 'In North America and Canada and the U.S., it's entering most of the campuses. In the campuses today, you have really violent attacks against Israel and also against Jews. Sometimes there is a feeling that this is even a witch hunt against people who are supporting Israel -- among faculty members and among the students. It's something that is worrying us very much. It is something that we are now going to fight' ... A letter to the Prime Minister from the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) obtained by the National Post and made public at the board meeting yesterday criticized Jean Chrétien and the entire Canadian delegation that attended this fall's meeting of La Francophonie in Lebanon for failing to denounce the many speakers in attendance who criticized Israel. "CJC was deeply concerned that neither you nor anyone from the Canadian delegation denounced the despicable politicization of the conference by speaker after speaker who used the occasion to vilify Israel.'"

Rising anti-Semitism reported in Australia,
stalert.com, (from UPI), November 26, 2002
"Australia's Jewish community is experiencing the highest level of anti-Semitism since statistics were first collected 57 years ago, figures released this week by the Executive Council of Australian Jewry showed. Council President Jeremy Jones told United Press International there were 593 reports of anti-Semitism in the year to Sept. 30, with incidents ranging from physical and verbal assaults to firebombs thrown at synagogues and community centers, telephone threats, hate mail and e-mail ... 'But what does concern us is that in the media there is a line being crossed from vigorous political debate to anti-Jewish stereotyping. We are also concerned that perpetrators are never found or charged,' he said. 'If this means racists feel it's a better climate for them to operate in, then it's a concern.' He said there are dozens of groups perpetrating hate crimes. The main ones are the Australian League of Rights, the Adelaide Institute, neo-Nazi fringe groups, and the Citizens Electoral Councils, which are followers of U.S.-based Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. The man with the highest profile is historian Frederick Toben of the Adelaide Institute, who, like British historian David Irving, denies the existence of the Holocaust. In September, Jones's organization won a landmark ruling in the Federal Court ordering Toben to stop publishing racially offensive material on the Internet. Jones also lamented what he calls horrific material from Muslims in Australia and singles out Sheik Taj al Din al Hilaly, spiritual leader of Australia's Muslims and one of the country's most contentious religious figures."

Report cites rising anti-Semitism in Greek media reports of intifada,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, December 2, 2002
"Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Greece, according to a new report. The Greek Helsinki Monitor, a nongovernmental organization affiliated with the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights, said in the report that since the start of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict more than two years ago, 'blatant anti-Semitism' has been expressed in the Greek media 'by a spectrum of influential personalities in politics, labor, education and culture.' The Sept. 11 attacks in the United States also contributed to the rise of anti-Semitism here, according to the 64-page report that was issued last week. The report cited a sharp increase in anti-Semitism in the media after Israel launched a large-scale military operation last spring to uproot the Palestinian terror infrastructure in the West Bank. At that time, according to the report, mainstream Greek newspapers were 'deluged' with anti-Semitic editorials and cartoons drawing parallels between the Israeli military operation and the Holocaust, and comparing Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to Hitler. Indeed, expressions of anti-Semitism through Holocaust imagery were so harsh in the Greek media and political circles at the time that Hronika, the official magazine of the Central Board of Greek Jewish Communities, spoke of a climate of 'hysteria and anti-Semitism' that was masquerading as mere criticism of the State of Israel. International Jewish organizations soon stood up and took notice of the development. In July and September, the Anti-Defamation League sent two letters to the Greek prime minister, Konstantine Simitis, and the foreign minister, George Papandreou, protesting the use of Holocaust imagery in the Greek media."
During a July meeting at which European security representatives discussed anti-Semitism, Shimon Samuels, the director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Paris office, urged Simitis and other Greek leaders to publicly condemn the use of anti-Semitic stereotypes and Nazi imagery when criticizing Israel. 'Anti-Israel fanaticism has degenerated into anti-Jewish hate mongering by leading intellectuals and politicians,' Samuels said at the time. In a more recent development, the Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a letter to the Greek government calling on it to close down the TV station of Yorgos Karatzaferis, the leader of the far-right Popular Rally Party."

Another study critical of racial attitudes at St. Cloud State,
Star Tribune (Minnesota), Dec. 1, 2002
"When students, faculty and staff members at St. Cloud State were invited to take a survey addressing attitudes toward minorities and on other issues, some of the findings among the 400 people who responded included: • About one in five faculty and staff members agreed that there are too many Jewish faculty members and administrators in higher education, and that they control university policy and direction. • About one in four professors, staff and students agreed that the problem with hiring Jewish professors is that they gradually displace Christian ideas and values with secularism. • About one in three faculty and staff members and two in five students said discrimination against blacks on campus would be largely eliminated if they would make a sincere effort to assimilate into the St. Cloud community and campus life. The statements 'are pretty disturbing, and we need to address the attitudes that lie behind them,' Michael Spitzer, [Jewish] provost and vice president for academic affairs, said last week. 'It's important to know that the people who responded to the survey were self-selected and it was not a random sampling,' Spitzer said. Indeed, only 164 of the university's 16,000 students and 237 of the 1,600 employees responded to an invitation to fill out the Web-based survey. Despite the small numbers, Spitzer said, 'there are issues on campus that we need to take very forceful action to deal with.'"

Europe's new face of anti-Semitism 5 countries now ban production of kosher meat as synagogues burn, boycott of Israel continues,
World Net Daily, December 3, 2002
"One of the first steps in Adolf Hitler's anti-Semitic drive in the creation of his Third Reich was instituting a ban on the kosher slaughter of animals. Today, as a new wave of ugly, and sometimes violent, anti-Semitism sweeps through the European continent, at least five countries have banned kosher food production, and one of them is considering halting all import of kosher meat. The latest nation to join the movement is Holland, where the move was guised in concern for cruelty to animals. 'They simply don't want foreigners and they don't want Jews,' said Rabbi Michael Melchior, former chief rabbi of Norway, another European nation that bans kosher meat production. 'I won't say this is the only motivation, but it's certainly no coincidence that one of the first things Nazi Germany forbade was kosher slaughter. I also know that during the original debate on this issue in Norway, where shechitah has been banned since 1930, one of the parliamentarians said straight out, 'If they don't like it, let them go live somewhere else.' While animal-rights activists have indeed been at the forefront of the recent efforts to ban kosher slaughter, there is growing concern on the part of people like Melchior, now an Israeli official, that initiatives spreading through Europe are gaining popularity because of deep-seated anti-Semitism manifesting itself in many other ways, from Belgium to Germany to France and Switzerland ... German police are investigating an incident last month where anti-Semitic disruptions occurred at a Berlin ceremony to restore a street name referring to Jews that was erased by Nazi officials in 1938. Hecklers at the event booed, whistled and shouted slogans including 'Jews out' and 'The Jews crucified Jesus,' according to Germany's Central Council of Jews. Paul Spiegel, the group's head, said he was horrified and that the incident 'reminds us painfully of the late 1920s,' when the Nazis began their rise to power in Germany ... A one-day international conference on sanctions and divestment in London last week called for a boycott of Israel 'not dissimilar to the campaign which contributed to the end of apartheid in South Africa ... While the Holland ban offers some loopholes to the Jewish community in the country, the Swiss ban on shechitah may go even further. The government earlier this year considered a ban on the import of kosher meat, and the Swiss Animal Association is calling for a national referendum on barring the import of such products. A poll shows 76 percent of the population would support such a move. 'It's ominous,' said Rabbi Menachem Genack, the kashrut administrator for the Orthodox Union, the largest kosher-certifying organization in the world."

St. Cloud State Settles Antisemitism Suit,
Star-Tribune (Minnesota), December 4, 2002
"St. Cloud State University will create a Jewish Studies and Resource Center and require anti-Semitism training for all faculty members under a lawsuit settlement announced this afternoon. The suit, which alleged a pattern of anti-Semitism and retaliation at the university, was filed in October 2001 by professors Geoffrey Tabakin and Laurinda Stryker, former professor Arie Zmora and student Robbi Hoy. Under the settlement, Zmora will receive $165,000, Stryker $80,000 and a paid educational leave for the current academic year, and Tabakin $20,000 and a job reassignment for two semesters. An additional $50,000 was set aside for Jewish faculty and staff members and anyone who filed a complaint that they suffered retaliation for opposing anti-Semitism. Another $265,000 will go for plaintiffs' attorney fees."

Earthquake in P.C. Land,
by Jonathan Rauch, overlawyered.com
(from National Journal), March 6, 1999
"To the surprise of no one so much as itself, on March 1 the faculty of the University of Wisconsin's flagship campus revoked the university's speech code for professors. Now, when I say this is notable, I must confess a certain bias. For years I've been writing and agitating against speech codes, and the opportunity to agitate arose again when a free-speech group called the Faculty Committee for Academic Freedom and Rights invited me there to give a talk. (They paid my travel expenses, though my speech was free, pardon the expression.) Still, what I saw when I got there was not what I had expected to see. UW is, after all, an epicenter of political correctness. It promulgated a speech code for students in the 1980s, when that was what everybody was doing, only to have the code blown away by a federal judge who ruled it unconstitutional in 1991 ... . So faculty were warned darkly that professors' `expressive behavior' (what you and I call `speech') is `subject to discipline' if it `is commonly considered by persons of a particular gender, race, cultural background, ethnicity, or handicap to be demeaning to members of that group'; if a listener has objected to such speech; and if the speech `makes the instructional setting hostile or intimidating or demeaning to members of the group of average sensibilities' ... To say that the code perpetrated a reign of terror on campus would be wrong. It was rarely used, and many professors were unaware of its existence until the repeal movement gained force. But it did reflect the ethos of an era when the mere accusation of racism was a sentence of perdition. In 1990, an art professor named Richard Long was spuriously accused of antisemitism by two graduate students with axes to grind. Neither of them was Jewish, but never mind: In Stalinesque secrecy--meaning that everybody knew except the target--the university proceeded to investigate Long, without notifying him formally, naming a plaintiff, or detailing any charges. In 1991, Long, who is an ebulliently outspoken conservative, was finally summoned to answer such questions as, `Have you ever used the word `feminazi'?'' Still later, the matter was dropped as mysteriously as it arose. Long was neither charged nor vindicated. `I was devastated,'' he says. `Your name is tarnished forever. For 20 years I tried to do everything they asked me to do. I loved being a professor. My father was a tenant farmer, so I saw this as a kind of opportunity. I venerated this university. I was a fool, obviously.'''

Q&A: Michael Moore,
[An Interview with Filmmaker Michael Moore]
Entertainment Weekly,October 25, 2002
Daniel Fierman: A film executive once told me that you had a reputation for being anti-Semitic – it had to do with Roger & Me and your supposed refusal to allow the film to be shown in Israel. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Moore: [Long pause] Right. Okay. I'm glad you asked that. Here's what happened. In Roger & Me, [Newlywed Game host] Bob Eubanks tells a joke. He says, Why don't Jewish women get AIDS? And I don't want this reprinted, so I won't say it, but it's an anti-Semitic, antigay, antiwoman joke. So I'm out in L.A. and Rob Friedman, who was then the head of [Warner Bros. Advertising and publicity], says, "You're not going to believe what's going on. The Anti-Defamation League and Bob Eubanks are blasting Michael Moore for putting anti-Semitism in the film." [Long pause] A week later, Jewish weeklies across the country all run the story that the ADL sent out saying that Michael Moore put anti-Semitism in the film. Now, I have a Jewish friend who says that his grandpa has two columns; good for Jews and bad for Jews. [Laughs] And once that appeared, it stuck in a lot of people's minds: Roger & Me – bad for Jews. Plus at the end of the film one of the tourism ladies in Flint says, I'm going to move to Israel and maybe I'll become the mistress of tourism. And then as a joke it cuts to the first intifada and I put up [the subtitle] "One month after Maxine arrived" – which I thought was funny, to go from war zone to war zone. So those two things got this weird vibe going, and then the film was invited to the Jerusalem Film Festival. [Sighs] I had two requests – that the film not be shown [if] people would be prohibited from seeing it because of curfews and that the film have Arabic subtitles. [The festival agreed to neither] so I said, "I am so sorry, I want to come, but I can't. how can I if people were not allowed in because of who they were?"
EW: But why does this still have currency 13 years later?
Moore: It's as simple as my not toeing the standard line on Israel. I would stand up for anybody who is going to be persecuted. And that position has no credibility if I won't do it for Palestinians [as well as Jews].

Anti-Semitic manuscript fails to sell,
BBC, June 6, 2001
"An anti-Semitic manuscript suppressed for more than a century and put up for sale by the group representing Jews in the UK has failed to sell at auction. There were fears the controversial manuscript, which claims Jews engaged in human sacrifice, could be used by neo-Nazis to provoke anti-Semitic hatred. The Board of Deputies of British Jews wanted to sell the manuscript - Human Sacrifice among the Sephardine or Eastern Jews - which it once said should never be seen in public. The paper was written by the Victorian explorer and diplomat Sir Richard Burton, who also translated the Kama Sutra, and has never been published. It went up for auction at Christie's in London on Wednesday but failed to reach its reserve price despited being expected to fetch up to £200,000 ... The board admitted prior to the auction that it needed money to move to new offices. The manuscript has been locked away for nearly 100 years Lord Janner, a former president of both the Board of Deputies and of the Holocaust Educational Trust, had attacked the board's decision to put the manuscript up for sale ... The manuscript was written after Burton had worked as a diplomat in Damascus. It focused on the 1840 disappearance of a Capuchin friar and the arrest of 13 Jews who were accused of ritual murder but later acquitted. But the manuscript was thought so inflammatory and damaging to the author's reputation that it was never published. In her will Burton's widow Isabel asked for it and other papers to be destroyed to protect her husband's name. The manuscript survived and came into the hands of the board in 1909 when it was hidden away."

What, You Condemned Anti-Semitism? How very one-sided!,
by Barry Strauss, National Review, December 11, 2002
"It's been a season of anti-Semitism on campus ... Oops! I mean, it's been a season of anti-Semitism and of anti-Muslim bigotry. At least that is what most American college and university presidents seem to think I should mean. The biggest news on campus this year may be the refusal of most American university presidents to sign a statement in October that called for an end to intimidation on campus and a return to tolerance. Although hundreds of university presidents did sign the statement, over a thousand did not. Why? Because the statement condemned all intolerance but specified only anti-Semitism as an example. Condemning anti-Semitism used to be as controversial as praising motherhood. Not any more. Come to think of it, now that motherhood has been condemned as a sexist plot, it makes sense that anti-anti-Semitism is a hot topic."

Chief Blasts Bigotry,
Totally Jewish, March 7, 2001
"The [British] chief rabbi has identified anti-Semitism as the most successful ideology of modern times in a speech to British community leaders. Addressing the inaugural meeting of the Parliamentary Committee Against Anti-Semitism last week, Dr Jonathan Sacks warned: 'There can be little doubt that it is the most successful ideology of modern times. Fascism came and went. Soviet communism came and went. Anti-Semitism came and stayed. It exists today in many parts of the world in more virulent forms than at any time since the Holocaust. Anti-Semitism is like a virus and like a virus it mutates.' Sacks told the invited audience of MPs, ambassadors and parliamentarians that Britain’s 280,000-strong Jewish community could play an active role in stemming racist sentiments in the UK. He said: 'We should to wear our identity with pride. The worst mistake Jews ever made was to believe that since Jews are the target of anti-Semitism, they must therefore be the cause of it. We know this is not true.'”
Drawing attention to the work of the Union Of Jewish Students in combating 'Islamophobia' on campus, he called on Muslims, Christians and others to take up the challenge of fighting bigotry. He added: 'What we are witnessing today is the second great mutation of anti-Semitism in modern times. The very worst crimes of anti-Semites of the past - racism, ethnic cleansing, genocide – are now attributed to Jews and the State of Israel, so that if you are against Nazism you must ipso facto be against Jews. I regard that as one of the most blasphemous inversions in the entire history of the world’s oldest hate.'”

Racism charge against newspaper. Respected national newspaper Politiken denies charges of anti-Semitism,
Copenhagen Post (Denmark), by Tøger Seidenfaden,
"The editor of national daily Politiken has rejected accusations from prominent members of the Jewish community that his newspaper is anti-Israel and uses anti-Semitic rhetoric in its reporting. Seidenfaden was forced to issue the denial in response to an article in the rival Jyllands Posten, stating that a number of prominent Danish Jewish leaders have decided to finance a full-page ad in Politiken, protesting against the paper's anti-Semitic tone and its hate campaign against Israel. The cause of the controversy was a featured article in Politiken on the 20th of November, in which writer Lau Sander claimed that the circumcision of Jewish and Muslim boys was just as great a problem as the ongoing debate about the clitoridectomy of Somalian teenage girls, but people were afraid to address the issue because of 'a fear of upsetting Jewish interests.' Seidenfaden dismissed the accusations as 'totally out of proportion.' 'It's nonsense to say we are anti-Israel, anti-Semitic or in any way anti-Jewish, and if the charges weren't so ridiculous they would be extremely insulting. We haven't as yet received the text for the ad, but it's interesting to note that a number of those named are connected to or employed by rival newspapers.'"

Uncle Velvel's Antisemitic Hammer,
by Martin Jaffe, [Jewish] Forward, December 13, 2002
"Uncle Velvel's hammer swung down, missed its mark and swatted him squarely on the thumb. With a howl of pain, he leaped up, threw the hammer violently to the ground and yelled at the top of his barely Americanized, Lower-East-Side-Yiddish-inflected voice: 'Antisemit!' And that's the day I learned that the antisemites were not just a bad memory from the Russian steppes my grandparents had fled, or a safely defeated pack of Nazi thugs confined now to the bad accents of Hollywood stereotypes. No, that day I learned about what Max Nordau, the turn-of-the-century Zionist thinker and colleague of Theodore Herzl, called: 'the Antisemitism of Things.' Hatred of Jews — it was said — had so worked its way into the structure of reality that not only people, but even inanimate objects — hammers, for example — might conspire to foil the best efforts of Jews to become part of the larger human world. Quite a concept to wrap my 8-year-old mind around! ... . Later, in graduate school, I learned from sociologists and historians the interesting notion that, especially in the centuries since Jews had embraced the modern world and assimilated into the surrounding European and American cultures, the continued presence of antisemitism — as long as it wasn't too extreme — was in fact an essential element in Jewish survival. Prejudice against Jews reminded them of the need for a common front against the gentile. In the absence of the deeply held, thoughtful and full-bodied religious culture that had sustained Jews in pre-modern times, modern Jews needed the threat of violence in order to find reasons to be Jews. Antisemitism was, it turned out, good for the Jews. A survival tool! ... But it seems pretty obvious to me that antisemitism was and remains one of the most vital and adaptable of modern ideologies. It attaches itself like a virus to a cultural system and reproduces itself until the entire cultural identity is bent to its service. And it particularly likes to feed on ideological systems in which a group sees its own historical misfortune as the result, not of its own decisions and failings, but as the issue of hidden, subterranean historical forces that conspire to prevent history's true and unsung victims from receiving their due ... No, I don't think Uncle Velvel was right. He's still with us, thank God, and remains unshakable in the views expressed in his encounter with the hammer. But how can I argue with him? ... It's almost like, gee... some conspiracy or something!"

Germany fights increasing anti-Semitism,
by Jeffrey Fleishman, Boston Globe, December 13, 2002
"[O]pinion polls suggest that this nation of 83 million is again witnessing strong and, on some issues, growing anti-Semitism and prejudice against immigrants. To an increasing degree, anti-Semitism is rooted in disdain for Israel's military crackdown on Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. During Germany's federal election campaign in September, Juergen Moellemann, former deputy chairman of the Free Democrats, attempted to attract far-right voters by making what were widely seen as veiled anti-Semitic comments. He also supported a fellow politician who characterized Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of Israel as using 'Nazi methods' to battle Palestinians. Moellemann's tactics troubled the establishment, because they emerged from a mainstream organization. Some, however, contend that he and others expressing similar views were attacked merely for raising legitimate criticisms of Israeli policy. 'It's always the Jews,' said Horst Mahler, a longtime leftist turned right-wing sympathizer and a lawyer for the NPD. 'They define who is an anti-Semite. If they say when you criticize Sharon and what's going on in Palestine, you're an anti-Semite, then I say, `Yes, I am.' But what does it mean?' The wider problem of anti-Semitism and xenophobia emanates from German fears of unemployment, economic problems, and the perceptions that foreigners are exploiting the welfare state and that Germany's pride and identity are melting away in a world of increased globalization. In a poll published last month, 22 percent of respondents said Jews have too much influence on society; 17 percent said they are partly responsible for anti-Semitism; and 52 percent said they take advantage of Germany's guilt over World War II ... During a recent ceremony naming a Berlin street in honor of Jews, a small crowd began chanting, 'Jews, go home!' Hate mail to prominent Jews is on the rise, according to Jewish groups. Calling it a 'document of hate,' the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper refused to publish excerpts of Martin Walser's popular German novel, 'Death of a Critic,' in which a writer fantasizes about the demise of his Jewish archrival. 'There are no thresholds of restraint anymore,' Wolfgang Benz, a scholar on anti-Semitism, wrote recently in Berliner Zeitung newspaper. Many Germans are 'reaching into the box of prejudice. ... People used to privately degrade Jews in the back rooms of pubs. Today, they defame them in public, with no inhibitions.'"

Manufacturing Anti-Semites,
by Uri Avnery, Tikkun, November-December 2002
"The first Israeli victim of Saddam Hussein is a Zionist myth on which we were brought up. The myth tells us that Israel is a haven for all the Jews in the world. In all the other countries, we are told, Jews live in perpetual fear that a cruel persecutor will arise, as happened in Germany. Israel is the safe haven, to which Jews can escape in times of danger. Indeed, this was the purpose of Israel's founding fathers when they established the state. Now Saddam comes along and proves the opposite. All over the world, Jews live in safety; they are threatened by annihilation in only one place on the planet: Israel. Here national parks are being prepared for use as mass graves, here (pathetic) measures against biological and chemical weapons are being prepared. Many people are already planning to escape to the communities in the Diaspora. End of a myth. Another Zionist myth died even before that: The Diaspora, so we learned in our youth, creates anti-Semitism. Everywhere the Jews are a minority, and a minority inevitably attracts the hatred of the majority. Only when the Jews gather in the land of their forefathers and constitute the majority there, we learned, will anti-Semitism disappear throughout the world. Thus spoke Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism. Nowadays this myth, too, is giving up its blessed soul. Whatever good the existence of the State of Israel may or may not have done, the current government of Israel is quickly undoing. The Sharon government is a giant laboratory for the growing of the anti-Semitism virus. It exports it to the whole world. Anti-Semitic organizations, which for many years vegetated on the margins of society, rejected and despised, are suddenly growing and flowering. Anti-Semitism, which had hidden itself in shame since World War II, is now riding on a great wave of opposition to Sharon's policy of oppression. Sharon's propaganda agents are pouring oil on the flames by accusing all critics of his policy of being anti-Semites. Many good people, who feel no hatred at all towards the Jews but who detest the persecution of Palestinians, are now called anti-Semites. Thus the sting is taken out of this word, giving it something approaching respectability. The practical upshot: not only is the State of Israel not protecting Jews from anti-Semitism, but—on the contrary—its government is manufacturing and exporting the anti-Semitism that threatens Jews around the world."

Ex-FSIN chief praises Hitler in speech
The StarPhoenix, December 14, 2002
[Note: the StarPhoenix is owned by Jewish/Zionist activist media mogul Izzy Asper; this article is also highlighted here, in his paper, the Leader-Post, in Regina, Saskatchewan, which Asper also owns]
"A respected Saskatchewan Indian leader said Friday Hitler did the right thing when he 'fried' six million Jews during the Second World War. In comments one local Jewish leader described as unfortunate, David Ahenakew, a senator with the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN), a former chief of the organization and a former chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), said in an interview Friday the Nazi leader was trying to clean up the world during the war. 'The Jews damn near owned all of Germany prior to the war,' Ahenakew said. 'That's how Hitler came in. He was going to make damn sure that the Jews didn't take over Germany or Europe. That's why he fried six million of those guys, you know. Jews would have owned the goddamned world. And look what they're doing. They're killing people in Arab countries' ... When asked how he could justify the Holocaust, Ahenakew said: 'How do you get rid of a disease like that, that's going to take over, that's going to dominate?" Ahenakew said when he served in Egypt in 1964. he saw Jews kill people. When asked for details, he said mines planted by the Israeli army killed civilians. 'All I know is what the Germans told me. Of course, I believe them. I saw the Jews kill people in Egypt when I was there. The Palestinians, Arabs. I saw them (Israel) f---ing dominate everything ... I don't support Hitler. But he cleaned up a hell of a lot of things, didn't he? You would be owned by the Jews right now the world over. Look, a small, little country (Israel) like that and everyone supports them. Who the hell owns many of the banks in the states, many of the corporations? Look at here in Canada. Izzy Asper (chair of CanWest Global, the owner of The StarPhoenix). He controls the media. What the hell does that tell you? That's power. That's f---ing power.' Ahenakew, who was FSIN chief from 1968-78 and AFN chief from 1982-85, grew impatient when told non-Jews own media companies, as well. 'The hell with the Jews. I can't stand them. And that's it. I don't want to talk about them.'"

Native leader under fire for applauding Hitler,
Globe and Mail (Toronot), December 16, 2002
"A prominent Jewish group in Canada is calling for a hate-crimes investigation after a former national native chief publicly applauded Adolf Hitler for the six millions Jews "fried" in the Holocaust. Keith Landy, president of the Canadian Jewish Congress, suggested the Saskatchewan government should consider criminal charges against David Ahenakew, a former leader of the Assembly of First Nations, the country's most prominent native organization. 'There's no doubt that the police should be looking into this,' Mr. Landy said. 'These statements cannot be made with impunity.' In an interview with a Saskatchewan journalist after a public speech before a provincial native group, Mr. Ahenakew was quoted as saying that the genocide Hitler ordered against Jews and other ethnic groups was an attempt to 'clean up the world.' 'That's how Hitler came in,' he told the Saskatoon Star Phoenix [see article below]. 'He was going to make damn sure that the Jews didn't take over Germany and Europe. That's why he fried six million of those guys, you know. Jews would have owned the goddamned world. And look what they're doing. They're killing people in Arab countries' ... Asked by a reporter to clarify his statement, he said he agreed with the Germans, and in reference to the Holocaust, responded, 'How do you get rid of a disease like that, that's going to take over, that's going to dominate?' When it was pointed out to him that the Nazis had committed genocide, he said: 'I don't support Hitler. But he cleaned up a hell of a lot of things, didn't he? You would be owned by Jews right now the world over' ... Native leaders have made efforts to distance themselves from his comments ... . 'We respect David,' [the chief of the Saskatchewan native organization, Perry] Bellegarde said Sunday. 'But his views on the Holocaust are his own personal views. His language and train of thought must have gotten off track. We don't try to push people apart and burn bridges.' Mr. Bellegarde said he plans to send letters of apology to Canada's Jewish organizations ... A criminal charge under the country's hate laws would require the consent of Saskatchewan's Attorney-General. The offence, defined as advocating and promoting genocide, carried a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Mr. Landy said his group will review the process for filing a complaint and gather input from other Jewish representatives in Saskatchewan. 'One has to question what is the motivation and how deeply held are these views,' said Mr. Landy, who wants to hear from the native community. 'This is the time for good people to speak up."

Hate-speak: an aboriginal's rant,
Globe and Mail (Canada), December 17, 2002
"Evidently, no one turned a hair when David Ahenakew launched his rant against the Jews last Friday. After all, he rants all the time ... Now that the garbage has hit the fan, the native higher-ups have turned tougher on Mr. Ahenakew. Still, you've got to ask yourself: Why don't people who describe themselves as oppressed minorities identify with the most oppressed minority in history? How come so many oppressed minorities are inclined to demonize Jews, instead?" [This web site answers these questions, at length.  Jews as "the most oppressed minority in history" is absolute nonsense.]

Germans have disturbing attitudes toward Jews, according to new poll,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Dec. 17, 2002
"Negative attitudes toward Jews are widespread in German society today, according to a new survey. Among other results, the American Jewish Committee poll found that 52 percent of Germans believe Jews are exploiting the memory of the Holocaust for their own purposes. The AJCommittee’s executive director, David Harris, called this the 'most disturbing result' in the survey, the third such poll conducted since German unification in 1990 ... The poll found that 60 percent of Germans acknowledge that anti-Semitism is a problem in their country, and 35 percent say the problem is increasing — facts that 'bear watching,' Harris said ... In the talks Monday with Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer and Interior Minister Otto Schily, concern about anti-Semitism, as well as Germany’s relations with Israel and the United States, were high on the agenda, said Harris, who described the meetings as 'positive.' German-Israel relations continue to be strong, he said, despite current political debate about German military sales to the Jewish state. 'We can count on Germany being there for Israel. We heard many expressions of understanding and support for Israel’s dangerous situation,' Harris said .. Among [the survey's] other findings: • 40 percent said Jews exert too much influence on world events, and 20 percent said they have 'too much influence' in Germany; • 35 percent of Germans believe Jews 'are motivated by feelings of revenge' more than other groups; • 59 percent agreed with the statement, 'Many people in Germany are afraid to express their true feelings about Jews' ... In November, Bielefeld University released a study of 3,000 Germans indicating that increasing numbers of them sympathize with 'law and order,' xenophobic, anti-Semitic and anti-Islam politics. According to that study, 22 percent agreed without reservation that 'Many Jews try to take advantage today of the history of the Third Reich, and the Germans pay for this.' In all, as many as 80 percent agreed to some degree with the statement."

Return of `the oldest hatred',
Ha'aretz (Israel), December 18, 2002
"Six months after a wave of anti-Semitism incidents around the world, Jewish and international organizations are releasing reports that caution that the phenomenon is not only continuing, but also taking root in Western countries. Although it may sound strange to use the words 'taking root' in reference to anti-Semitism, which recently was described as 'the oldest hatred' - this year, a new paradox emerged. While at the beginning of 2002 the intifada and Israel's actions in the territories were the immediate reason behind anti-Semitic acts - mostly carried out by Muslims in Europe - as 2003 approaches, there is an emerging trend among the local radical right and neo-Nazis to translate this anti-Semitism into anti-Israel attacks. They have been joined in this effort by left-wing academic circles ... The problematic link between anti-Semitism and the conflict in the Middle East worries others besides the Chabad representatives in Brussels. In November, Jewish leaders from 40 countries met in Prague to discuss rising anti-Semitism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the demonization of Israel and Holocaust denial ... The Helsinki Human Rights Watch group reported that since the outbreak of the intifada, Greek newspapers have published quotes from influential figures in politics, education and culture that indicated 'blatant anti-Semitism.' Greek papers 'were flooded' with caricatures and headlined stories that drew parallels between Israel's actions in the territories and the Holocaust and compared Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to Hitler ... German newspapers are still discussing the results of a public opinion poll that found that 22 percent of Germans believe the Jews 'have too much influence' in their country and 17 percent believe that the Jews themselves are to blame, at least partially, for anti-Semitism. At a Zionist Federation conference in Canada in early December, the speakers noted that Jew hatred is being camouflaged as criticism of Israel. Recently, there has also been an increase in the number of references to blood libels and 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,' that imply that via Israel, the Jews are taking over the world. Comments of this sort are also appearing in academic circles ... Bnai Brith's Anti Defamation League last week submitted a ten-point plan for a war against anti-Semitism to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Among the points are a call for member countries to follow the U.S., Germany and France, and to enact laws against racism and anti-Semitism ... In his lecture on anti-Semitism in Canada, Prof. Frederic Krantz, the director of the Canadian Institute of Jewish Studies noted ironically that: 'once it was thought that the establishment of a Jewish state would put an end to anti-Semitism. But things did not develop according to the expectations.'"

Universities deny they spawn hatred Ad: Jews intimidated,
by Michael Higgins, National Post (Canada), December 18, 2002
"Canadian universities said a newspaper advertisement portraying them as hotbeds of Jewish intolerance was unfair and asserted no evidence exists of large-scale anti-Semitism on campuses. The ad stated an increasing number of Jewish students are being intimidated into remaining silent during discussions about the Middle East, sending a 'chill' over Canadian universities. 'The struggle between Israelis and Palestinians has created an atmosphere of intolerance that is pervasive and frightening for many students, especially Jews,' said the ad placed by the activist group Solidarity with Jews at Risk and supported by more than 100 famous and respected Canadians. However, universities rejected the allegations ... Robert Kerr, the vice-president (academic) at the University of Manitoba, said the ad paints an unfair picture of Canadian universities ... Solidarity with Jews at Risk is a group formed this year by Anna Morgan, a journalist with the Canadian Jewish News, Geraldine Sherman, a writer, and Rachael Turkienicz, a professor of education at York University. The ad was supported by Canadians from all walks of life, including Irving Abella, a York University professor and former Canadian Jewish Congress president; Margaret Atwood, an author; Professor David Bercuson of the University of Calgary; Alex Colville, an artist; June Callwood, a writer and activist; Edward Greenspan, a lawyer; David Mirvish, the theatre producer; Arlene Perly Rae, a reviewer of children's literature and the wife of former Ontario premier Bob Rae; Heather Reisman, Indigo chief executive; her husband Gerald Schwartz, chief executive of Onex Corp.; and Moses Znaimer, head of Citytv."

Jews and Judaism in Rev. Moon's Divine Principle. A Report by A. James Rudin, Assistant Director, Interreligious Affairs Department, The American Jewish Committee, 1976
Freedom of Mind
"... THE PERIL OF REV. MOON (by RABBI MARC H. TANENBAUM) There are several levels of significance implied for the American people, and, especially for the Jewish community, in this study of the basic text of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's movement -- the first systematic study, to our knowledge, that has been published of the 'sacred scriptures' of Moonism. The first is that Rev. Moon is contributing to a theologically reactionary mentality whose traditional fixations on anti-Semitism have been repudiated in recent decades by virtually every major Catholic, Protestant, Greek Orthodox, and Evangelical group and leader -- from Vatican Council II, the World and National Council of Churches, to Dr. Billy Graham and the Southern Baptist Convention. At a time when the majority of enlightened Christian leadership throughout the world is laboring to uproot the sources of the pathology of anti-Jewish hatred which culminated in the Nazi holocaust, Rev. Moon appears to be embarked on a contrary course of seeking to reinfect the spiritual bloodstream of mankind with his cancerous version of contempt for Jews and Judaism. On this level. therefore, this document is published as a clinical diagnosis intended to expose the Moon infection in order that both Christian and Jewish leadership will be vigilant to the need for combatting any effort of Rev. Moon and his followers to enter the mainstream of American religion and culture with his horrendous baggage of bigotry ... The troubling question cannot be evaded: why are Rev. Moon and his political backers resorting to the Nazi model of exploiting anti-Semitism for ideological purposes? Every American Congressman, Senator and public official who is approached by the Moon movement ought to be alert to this ideological land-mine of fanatic hatred when courted for support by Rev. Moon and his backers. And finally, this document is intended for the consciences of Jewish young people who, most incredibly, have been enticed or seduced to become a 'Moonie.' It has been estimated that nearly thirty percent of the Moonies today are Jewish young men and women who have been subjected to this latest form of totalitarian brainwashing."

Calling Korkor anti-Semitic a misuse of label,
by Jesse Abrams-Morley, Daily Northwestern, October 24, 2002
"Two weeks ago, Bassel Korkor suggested that U.S. and Israeli policies may be encouraging rather than preventing terrorism in the Arab world. That was not anti-Semitism. Korkor's opinions, although debatable, did not hurt anyone. But apparently Kellogg Profs. Stuart Meyer and Allan Drebin thought differently. In their Oct. 14 column, the pair wrote, 'The president of Harvard University recently pointed out that columns like Korkor's occur on campuses for less-than-laudable reasons.' The statement was a reference to Harvard President Lawrence Summers' Sept. 17 speech on the rise in anti-Semitism on American college campuses. Rather than directly accusing Korkor of anti-Semitism, Meyer and Drebin insinuated it by referring to the speech. Such a dirty attack should be above any person, let alone a university professor. If Meyer and Drebin had any sense of decency, they would issue a public apology. But beyond the sheer gall these men displayed, there are deeper, more troubling aspects to their accusation ... It should make you think twice before throwing words like anti-Semitism around blindly. The professors' attack also showed too many people think of the terms 'Israeli' and 'Jew' as synonymous. Korkor never criticized Jewish people in his column. He criticized the U.S. government and, to a lesser extent, the Israeli government ... I would like to see a day when there is no anti-Semitism. But absent that, I'd like to see a day when people no longer use charges of anti-Semitism as weapons. There's enough hatred in the world already without us inventing more."

WIESENTHAL CENTER URGES JAPANESE PRIME MINISTER TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST SENIOR OFFICIAL WHO UTTERED ANTI-JEWISH SLUR, Simon Wiesenthal Center, November 7, 2002
"The Simon Wiesenthal Center urged Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi to take significant action against Vice Minister of Health, Labor, and Welfare, Yoshio Kimura, who referred to 'money-grubbing ghoulish Jews' while discussing important social and economic issues earlier this week. In his letter to the Japanese Prime Minister, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Wiesenthal Center's associate dean stated that, 'this official (Mr. Kimura) has succeeded in insulting and endangering Jews the world over.' 'Even more devastating,' Cooper continued, 'is that the vice minister's false arguments and horrific imagery parallels the very hate that motivates terrorists and suicide bombers who murder Jews and attacked Jewish institutions on three continents. Unless appropriate action is taken these terrorists and bomb makers will believe they have found new friends and allies in Japan,' he added."

The Mother of All Anti-Jew Sites. Islamic info source boasts thousands of pages in battle against 'Zionists',
World Net Daily, May 27, 2002
"Despite the prominent display of the words 'No hate, no violence,' an anti-Jewish website provides plenty of opportunities – in several different languages – to read about the 'evils' of the Jews and how the 'deception' of the Holocaust is being used as a propaganda tool by 'Zionists.' Radio Islam (http://www.radioislam.org) is named for a radio station of the same name in Stockholm, Sweden, begun in 1987, according to the site. The website creators say its goal is to 'combat Jewish racism and the Zionist ideology by information in order to reveal the simple propaganda – lies that Zionists use in order to promote their ideology and political aims – lies which thereby become an instrument of oppression of people. This site is a forum for information about Zionism, Jewish racism, and the so-called 'holocaust' (i.e., about what really did happen to the Jews during the Second World War, as this is one of the main themes of Zionist propaganda)' ... A main theme woven throughout the site is the claim that Jews control the United States. A questionable quote the site attributes to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon says: 'We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.' Another page features a list of Jews in the Bush administration, including photos, while still another is titled, 'USA's Rulers: All Are Jews!' ... Although WND has run stories about Islamic websites in the past, none has the sophistication or depth of Radio Islam."

Is anti-Semitism sweeping Canada?,
National Post, January 2, 2003
"Anti-Semitism, warns The Jerusalem Post in last Wednesday's editorial, is on the rise in Canada. Outsiders' views on such a serious subject command attention, and when the commentator is an Israeli newspaper and the evaluation of the situation so grave as it was in the Post, one cannot help but consider the matter carefully. Is there indeed a wave of anti-Semitism in Canada today? The Jerusalem Post is certainly not the first to say so. Canadian Jews are increasingly apprehensive ... 'In Europe,' Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer has claimed, 'it is not very safe to be a Jew. What is odd is not the anti-Semitism of today but its relative absence during the past half-century. That was the historical anomaly. Holocaust shame kept the demon corked. But now the atonement is passed' ... Material is hardly in short supply. From the Middle East engines of classic anti-Semitic propaganda generate incitements -- including The Protocols of the Elders of Zion with its blood-curdling pedigree going back to the Czarist Empire. Anti-globalization campaigners have spawned anti-Semitic fellow travellers, promoting an anti-Jewish vision of the world internationally. Images of the atrocious struggle of Israelis and Palestinians appear instantly, broadcast around the world. How could these not become the grist for any number of political mills?"

SCSU official apologizes after flap over flag,
St. Cloud Star-Tribune, January 7, 2003
"A St. Cloud State vice president apologized after a student political group claimed he violated their First Amendment rights by demanding the removal of an Israeli flag. Nathan Church, vice president for student life and development, said Monday in a letter to the College Republicans that he simply requested they remove the flag on display at Atwood Memorial Center. The flag, which was part of a pro-Israel booth, incited heated debate and a scuffle between a professor and a student. After fielding complaints, Church said he asked the group to remove the flag. The group, which said it was displaying the flag to show support for Israel's right to defend itself, claimed Church was using his position to order them to remove the flag. `I have come to appreciate your feelings that my request was experienced by you, and others at your display, more like a directive than a request,' Church wrote in his letter to the group. 'I, and the University, want to assure you that we vigorously support your rights to freedom of expression' ... The display featured literature prepared and paid for by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, the flag, and a list of terrorism victims in Israel. A professor thought some of the display was anti-Semitic, a sensitive charge at St. Cloud State. The university recently settled a class-action lawsuit alleging anti-Semitism for more than $1.25 million."

If you hate Israel, you hate the Jews,
By Kirk Wisemayer, Daily Journal, January 10, 2002
"What is it that makes people hate Israel so? What is it that makes people hate Jews so? Anyone who is capable of any semblance of truth will admit that if one hates Israel, then one hates the Jews -- and vice versa. Hateful views of Israel are what they are ... anti-Semitism. There is no reason for anyone who is not a Jew-hater to be anti-Israel. Israel is an ally of the United States, a bastion of (and the only) multi-party democracy and human rights in a region replete with various forms of corrupt autocracy and dictatorship and some of the worst human rights abuses in the world. Israel has an independent and fair legal and judicial system, with an appellate system available and well used by all -- especially the Palestinians. Israel is a pluralistic society that guarantees freedom of worship to people of all religions -- yes, even the Palestinians. Anyone who can paint Israel as the villain of the Intifada can only be a Jew-hater. It is the Palestinians who teach in their schools to hate and kill Jews."

Jews in France Fearful of Attacks,
The Washington Post, Jan 11, 2003
"Jewish parents tell their sons not to wear yarmulkes. A rabbi is stabbed. Elderly women are frisked before entering synagogues – just in case. As the stresses of being Jewish in France multiply, some feel it safer to hide their religion. Others have decided the only solution is to pack up and leave – more than twice as many as a year earlier, according to statistics released last week by the Jewish Agency. The agency, which arranges immigration to Israel, said 2,326 of France's 600,000 Jews left. They were 6.7 percent of the total reaching Israel in 2002, the highest rate since 1972. At that time French Jews flocked there full of pride at Israel's victory in the 1967 Six Day War. Today, their reasons are different. In synagogues and at Jewish gatherings, people say they are frightened by a rise in anti-Semitic incidents. Though the government has loudly condemned the attacks, many wonder if France's leaders are committed to fighting anti-Semitism. 'In Israel, at least we know the government is on our side,' said Stephanie Ohana, a 34-year-old Parisian Jew, at a prayer service this week for her rabbi, who was stabbed. 'It's paradoxical, isn't it? But we have the feeling we'd be safer in Israel.'"

[Jews worry that the protective walls they've built around their exploitive ethnocentrism is about to burst. The talking head below will never get it.

Study: Dems more anti-Semitic than GOPers. Survey finds bias against Jews greater among young, World New Daily, January 15, 2003
"A new study finds Democrats are more anti-Semitic than Republicans. The Institute for Jewish & Community Research, which conducted an authoritative public opinion survey on the topic of anti-Semitic beliefs, also reveals the young are more likely to be anti-Jewish than those over 35. 'In the wake of the Holocaust, social norms in the United States and elsewhere in the world were more prohibitive of most overt expressions of anti-Semitism,' said Gary Tobin, president of the institute. 'The constraints against anti-Semitism are weakening, and the rise in anti-Semitic beliefs is part of that trend.' The survey, entitled, 'Anti-Semitic Beliefs in the United States,' by Tobin and Sid Groeneman, also asked some other timely questions, and yielded some surprising results: Nearly one-third of Americans (32 percent) were concerned that a Jewish president might not act in America's best interests if they conflict with Israel's. This belief recalls the 'dual loyalties' stigma sometimes applied to American Jews – that Jewish Americans are at least equally swayed by Israel's interests as by what is best for America. Democrats tend to be more anti-Semitic than Republicans. For example, Republicans are less likely to view Jews as caring only about themselves (12 percent) than Democrats or independents (20 percent each). This finding may come as a surprise to many Jews, who are much more heavily aligned with the Democratic Party. Thirty-seven percent of Americans agree that Jews were responsible for killing Jesus Christ. Historically the Christ-killing charge has served as an ideological basis of anti-Semitism. Moreover, the analysis shows that those holding the view that Jews killed Jesus Christ are more likely to accept other anti-Jewish stereotypes, see Jews as different from themselves, and also see Jews as a moral threat to America. In addition, the survey asked respondents about their beliefs regarding: Jewish "control of the media" Jewish lawyers Holocaust denial Jewish "influence on Wall Street" The data from the survey also revealed a connection between anti-Israelism and anti-Semitism. 'Much of anti-Israelism is thinly veiled anti-Semitism – anti-Semitism in disguise,' said Tobin."

"The University of Colorado's president says bigotry is a troubling issue facing college campuses. President Elizabeth Hoffman released a statement and an action plan against bigotry Friday. Her actions come after recent acts of anti- Semitism on the CU Boulder campus. 'The University of Colorado stands firm on the fundamental importance of human dignity and denounces those engaging in acts of racism, sexism, homophobia, bigotry, anti-Semitism or culturally intolerant behavior,' Hoffman’s statement reads. She also released an action plan including adding 'ethnic intimidation' to the student code of conduct. The Anti Defamation League and Hillel Council of Colorado call her actions an 'important first step.'"

Poll indicates anti-Semitism on rise among young Americans,
Omaha.com (from the Washington Post), January 21, 2003
"Anti-Semitism may be increasing in the United States as more young adults express bigoted views about Jews than do middle-aged Americans, according to a national poll by the Institute for Jewish and Community Research in San Francisco. On question after question, researchers found that the proportion of Americans ages 18 to 35 who held anti-Semitic views was consistently higher than the percentage of middle-aged Americans who shared those attitudes. For example, nearly one in four young adults - 23 percent - agreed with the statement that Jews were a 'threat' to the country's 'moral character,' a view shared by 15 percent of Americans between ages 45 and 54. And 20 percent of young adults agreed that Jews 'care only about themselves,' compared with 12 percent of middle-aged Americans. Gary Tobin, president of the group that commissioned the survey, suggested that the disquieting results may reflect "'he blurring of anti-Israelism and anti-Semitism on college campuses' and that 'the social norms against anti-Semitism that took root following the Holocaust have worn off.'"

French Jewry stunned by allegations that rabbi faked stabbing,
by Daniel Ben Simon, Ha'aretz (Israel), January 24, 2003
"The French Jewish community is in an uproar over allegations that Reform Rabbi Gabriel Farhi, who was stabbed on January 3, may in fact have faked the stabbing. The allegations surfaced in a report this week by the right-wing weekly Marianne, which was then picked up by Le Figaro. The journal reported that police officers investigating the stabbing said it is not clear whether Farhi was actually stabbed by an unknown assailant, and they are not ruling out the possibility that Farhi in fact stabbed himself. The report stunned French Jewry, which for the past two years has been vociferously protesting law enforcement agencies' failure to take effective action against the hundreds of anti-Semitic attacks the community has suffered. 'You can imagine what a destructive effect this affair could have on the Jewish community,' said one community leader, who asked to remain anonymous. 'For two years we have been screaming about the attacks against us and the rise of anti-Semitism in France. If, God forbid, it turns out that the stabbing was staged, not just Rabbi Farhi is in trouble, all the Jews are in trouble. Who will take us seriously? And that is without even mentioning the enormous shame caused by the thought that four former prime ministers took the trouble to support the rabbi and the Jewish community. What will we do now? Apologize to them?' The Reform community is backing Farhi fully. When its executive board met Monday night to elect a new president, all 18 members made a point of shaking Farhi's hand and offering their support ... A few days later, the doctor who examined Farhi submitted a report to the police in which he wrote that 'the wound does not match the rabbi's version of the assault.'"

Anti-Israel Protest Calendar,
Anti-Defamation League, updated: January 28, 2003
"The prospect of war against Iraq and the crisis in the Middle East have led to a continuation of large rallies against Israel across the United States in 2003. As in 2002, anti-globalization, antiwar and Muslim and Arab-American groups and supporters have increasingly coalesced against Israel's treatment of Palestinians and the American government's policies in the Middle East. While ADL does not consider mere criticism of Israel to be anti-Semitic or illegitimate, large rallies opposing the Jewish state - spurred by events in the Middle East - repeatedly serve as forums supporting violence and terrorist organizations, and have been marred by anti-Semitic expression. In attempting to de-legitimize Israel and challenge its right to exist, members of organizations that publicly repudiate bigotry against Jews - as do most of those named below - tolerate or initiate at their events a grotesque inversion of history equating Zionism with Nazism."

["Antisemitism" defined now as "terrorism?"]
FBI sees recent crime as terrorism,
Las Vegas Sun, January 30, 2003
"The FBI has classified recent vandalism associated with swastika and racist graffiti in Las Vegas as terrorism, and agents are worried that it may be a harbinger of violence if local white supremacist groups are left unchecked. This week, the FBI opened a civil rights investigation into racist and anti-Semitic graffiti sprayed on a wall and a truck at a southwest Las Vegas business. On Jan. 21, two signs with white supremacist messages were posted along Interstate 215 at Tropicana Avenue and Sunset Road with a website address and a phone number for the local chapter of a large, national racist group. Racist fliers have been popping up on cars at shopping centers and at concert venues throughout the valley. 'What we're seeing in the area are groups of white supremacists who are trying to organize and get publicity; they're beginning to recruit,' said Special Agent Daron Borst of the FBI's Las Vegas office. 'These groups are classified as terrorist groups because they are attempting to change social opinions through force or threat of force. We consider this to be a precursor to crimes of violence, and it has the potential to be dangerous' ... Allen Lichtenstein, general counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, said that while vandalism is illegal, racist speech is permitted under the First Amendment. 'As much as we do deplore hateful and racist messages, that speech is protected, but the mode of speech isn't,' he said."

French Jewish leader stirs anger with talk of anti-Semitic alliance By Philip Carmel,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, January 30, 2003
"French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Rafarrin and leaders from across the political spectrum were enjoying last week what has traditionally been one of the more agreeable consensual events of the calendar. But then CRIF President Roger Cukierman spoke about a new alliance threatening France’s 500,000 Jews, linking neo-Nazis, environmentalists and left-wing groups. Speaking of a 'brown-green-red alliance,' Cukierman warned of the danger faced by Jews from the alliance, which he described as 'anti-globalization, anti-capitalist, anti-American and anti-Zionist.' Moreover, when he referred to — though did not mention by name — the spokesperson for France’s peasant farmers and international anti-globalization activist José Bové as being a leading light in such an alliance, the national secretary of the Green Party, Gilles Lemaire, promptly stood up from his table and left the dinner. Bové, together with other pro-Palestinian activists, broke through Israeli army barricades last year to stand alongside Yasser Arafat during the army’s siege of the Palestinian leader’s headquarters in Ramallah ... 'This brown-green-red alliance gives us the shivers,' Cukierman added. This comment particularly enraged the Greens. The atmosphere was not helped the following day by a report in the daily Liberation newspaper which capitalized the word 'Verts' — French for Greens — thereby implying that Cukierman was referring specifically to the political party ... The Greens, though, were not alone in condemning Cukierman’s remarks — which France’s Socialist Party described as 'excessive.' The Trotskyist Revolutionary Communist League, which Cukierman specifically named in his speech and which received around 5 percent of the vote in last year’s presidential election, called the remarks 'intellectual terrorism that hides state terrorism.' However, Cukierman’s views are widely held in the Jewish community, which believes that the left has not done enough to deal with anti-Semitism. Leading Jewish intellectual Alain Finkielkraut wrote recently that anti-Semitic discourse was taking root in the anti-globalization movement and within left-wing intellectual circles"

Backlash Vs. Jews Seen In Iraq War. U.S. wants European capitals to do more to thwart possible anti-Semitic surge,
Jewish Week, January 31, 2003
"Even as it prepares for a possible war with Iraq, the Bush administration is working urgently to avert what it believes could be a widespread anti-Semitic backlash in Europe triggered by a confrontation with Saddam Hussein. European Jewish communities that already have been hard hit by waves of new anti-Semitic incitement and violence could be early targets of an anti-Israel, anti-American backlash, administration officials have told Jewish leaders. 'Going into Iraq will likely produce an anti-American backlash on the streets of Europe, and the Jews are likely to bear the brunt of it,' said Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. In recent weeks the State Department has used a variety of diplomatic channels to send the same message: European leaders have to do much more to prepare for and thwart the expected anti-Semitic surge. But the results of those official efforts have been mixed, at best, according to Washington insiders, in part because the expected anti-Semitism surge will be closely linked to a fierce anti-American backlash that may have the quiet acquiescence, if not outright encouragement, of European governments. In recent meetings with leaders of the World Jewish Congress, top administration officials indicated that they independently raised the specter of a rising tide of anti-Semitism stemming from a possible Iraq war with their European counterparts and urged them to develop pre-emptive plans, said Avi Beker, secretary general of the World Jewish Congress ... 'There are extremists here who will try to portray the war as all Israel’s doing, and we have to concerned about the growing anti-Israel energy coming out of the anti-war movement,' said one community relations activist. 'But it will probably be confined to the fringes. Under most scenarios, there’s no real fear of widespread anti-Semitism.' If the war proves difficult and costly, however, that calculus could change. Already the nascent anti-war movement here is steeped in vehement anti-Israel ideology. 'It’s a dangerous mix,' this source said. 'We have a bad economy, a war that could go bad and an anti-war movement that seems willing to tolerate real anti-Semitic expressions. So we’d be fools not to take seriously the possibility of a backlash here."

Froemming suspended 10 games, pulled from Japan trip,

"Longtime umpire Bruce Froemming has been suspended for 10 days and has lost his Opening Day assignment in Tokyo for using an anti-Semitic slur to describe a major league baseball administrator, sources said. USA Today reported Friday that Froemming had been pulled from the Japan trip and was expected to be suspended for the slur in a conversation about umpiring administrator Cathy Davis. The newspaper said Froemming called Davis a 'stupid Jew bitch.' Two baseball management sources, speaking on the condition they not be identified, told The Associated Press late Thursday night that Froemming was suspended for 10 days without pay. At 63, Froemming is baseball's most senior umpire. He was to start off his 33rd major league season by working the two-game, opening series between the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners in Tokyo on March 25-26."

The Obsession,
by Joe Sobran, Sobrans, February 1, 2003
"We have been getting 24/7 coverage of Jews, the Holocaust, and Israel for years now. The front pages, the evening news, the magazine covers devote so much attention to Israel -- a country the size of New Jersey on the other side of the world -- that you could get the impression that it spans several time zones and includes much of the world's population (plus a few gentiles) ... Every American president has to spend a disproportionate amount of his time coddling Israel and denouncing or actively fighting Israel's enemies. It's become part of the job description, as much as if it were written into the Constitution -- or more so, since constitutional obligations have become optional and 'this' obligation is definitely not. At the same time, no president or any other politician may suggest that the American-Israeli alliance imposes undue risks, costs, or burdens on the United Stat es. Journalism still devotes so much attention to the Holocaust that, as I once quipped, 'The NEW YORK TIMES should be renamed HOLOCAUST UPDATE.' Books and movies about it continue to pour forth; bookstores have whole sections on the Holocaust, and universities consecrate entire departments to 'Holocaust studies' ... Many gentiles live in dread of being labeled anti-Semitic, a charge against which there is no real defense or appeal: to be accused is to be guilty. The burden of proof, as I've often pointed out, is on the defendant -- and a difficult burden it is, since he hardly knows what he's being accused of. How can you prove your innocence of an undefined crime? By the same token, there is no penalty for false charges of anti-Semitism, since a meaningless charge can't be proved false anyway. No gentile is quite safe from the charge. The Gospels, Catholicism, and the papacy have been indicted; so have Chaucer, Shakespeare, Voltaire, Edmund Burke, Dickens, Henry James, Henry Adams, Dostoyevsky, Mark Twain, Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Hemingway. (So far Jane Austen and Emily D ickinson seem to have escaped the accusation.) Then there are whole anti-Semitic nations, among them Russia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Germany, France, and Spain, lately joined by most of the Arab nations (thereby proving it is possible to be Semitic and anti-Semitic at the same time). Billy Graham was recently roasted for anti-Semitism when it transpired that he'd made a few disparaging comments about Jews in the media during what he'd thought were private conversations with President Richard Nixon '30 years ago!' Perish the thought that there might have been a grain of truth in what he'd said; Graham dutifully groveled, then, when Jewish groups indignantly complained that this was not enough, he groveled again. A few years back, even that Hollywood icon Marlon Brando had to do a tearfully groveling retraction of some mildly critical comments about Jews in Hollywood. And they wonder why I'm obsessed ... Despite various warnings and pressures -- veiled threats, really -- I wasn't about to back down or retract anything ... But if I wanted to thrive in journalism, I was expected to put Jewish interests ahead of everything, or at least keep quiet. As I told Bill Buckley at the time, the Jewish- Zionist interest amounted to an unacknowledged third party in American politics. Though it had been traditionally liberal, it had sprouted a 'neoconservative' wing since 1967. In truth, the neoconservatives were hardly conservative at all. For most of them, Israel was everything and overrode all other issues. You could agree with them on nine out of ten issues, but if the tenth was Israel the other nine didn't matter to them. You were the enemy. You couldn't really feel the power of the Jewish Party until you ran up against it. ... The plague-carriers, so to speak, are the secularized, liberal, middlebrow Jews whose vulgarity sets the tone for American politics, public discourse, and popular culture. Some of them, like Steven Spielberg and Barbra Streisand, have real talent, of sorts; most of them are good at making money and aggressive in using it for their pet causes. Above all, they have a low genius for propaganda -- for shaping the popular mind and its characteristic platitudes. This is the prevalent body of Jews, our unacknowledged third party -- the party of Zionism, Holocaust promotion, secularism, sexual license (including 'gay rights' and legal abortion), and an aggressive U.S. foreign policy (in the interests of Israel, not the United States itself). The Jewish Party, only a small fraction of the U.S. population, donates more than half the money received by the presidential candidates of the two major parties. It also dominates the major news and entertainment media. The Jewish Party's inordinate power, though unmentionable in the major media, explains why gentiles, especially the ambitious, dread the label of 'anti- Semitism.'"

The more Jewish, the more vulnerable,
By Steven M. Cohen, Ha'aretz (Israel), February 2, 2003
"Alarmed by the growing specter of terrorism abroad and at home, American Jews report feeling high levels of anxiety and fear of further attacks - on their nation, their community and themselves. The September 11 attacks, ongoing violence in Israel and reports of anti-Semitic threats worldwide have combined to create a widespread feeling of vulnerability as Americans and as Jews, according to a survey conducted in November and December. Terrorism, moreover, is changing many Jews' definition of anti-Semitism. Jews are shifting their primary focus of attention from the domestic social groups that once stirred their anxiety to newer groups, including Muslims, that have become identified with the terrorist threat. For growing numbers of Jews, the threat of anti-Semitism has shifted from social discrimination to anti-Israel hostility ... When asked, 'How much anti-Semitism do you think there is in the United States today?', 34 percent answered 'a great deal' and 53 percent answered 'a moderate amount ... [T]he survey pointed to a new source of anxiety: 'anti-Israelism,' clearly perceived by Jews as a form of anti-Semitism. Almost half (47 percent) believe that many or most 'journalists who criticize Israeli policies' are anti-Semitic. Even more (59 percent) feel that way about American Muslims. We have no parallel figures from earlier studies. In other words, two groups seen as anti-Israel - groups with which most American Jews have little social contact - now lead the list of perceived anti-Semites, while perceptions of anti-Semitism among other groups are in sharp decline. These trends suggest that American Jews are redefining anti-Semitism. In earlier days it meant exclusion from jobs, housing and universities. Today it means hostility toward Israel ... Respondents were asked whether several American leaders and groups were pro-Palestinian, pro-Israel or even- handed ... Noteworthy were the low pro-Israel perceptions for the Christian right and Fox News, whom Jewish communal leaders have praised both for their pro-Israel views. Clearly, the message of praise has not been adopted by the Jewish rank-and-file."

The Jews and I. Passover Reflections,
by John Derbyshire, National Review, April 10 , 2001
"I also appreciate the opportunity offered by Passover to take out my own thoughts and feelings about the Jews and examine them, an exercise I recommend to all Gentiles, though once a year is probably often enough. I myself grew up among the traditional attitudes of the English lower classes. These were best expressed by the late Kingsley Amis, who was once asked by an interviewer whether he was antisemitic. 'Very, very mildly,' replied Amis. Pressed to elaborate, he offered this: 'Well, when I'm watching the credits roll at the end of a TV program, I say to myself: 'Oh, there's another one.'' That is about the temperature of antisemitism I knew as a child: barely detectable. (I have, of course, already outraged a number of American readers, devotees of the proposition that anyone who makes the merest remark about the Jews that is not absolutely, irreproachably positive, is secretly plotting to massacre them. I acknowledge this with a resigned sigh. One thing you learn, writing for the public, is that anything whatsoever that you say about the Jews will be seen as virulently antisemitic to somebody, somewhere.) ... I was a bit disconcerted some years ago, when some different Jewish friends took me along to a Kol Nidre service, and I discovered that the only reference to England in the prayer book was to the 12th-century pogrom at York. Come on, guys: That was eight hundred years ago. Isn't there a statute of limitations on pogroms? ... I find myself now, in middle age, with complicated and sometimes self-contradictory feelings about the Jews. Those early impressions — culture, wit, intelligence, kindness, and hospitality — are still dominant, and I have read enough to know what a stupendous debt our civilization owes to the Jews. At the same time, there are aspects of distinctly Jewish ways of thinking that I dislike very much. The world-perfecting idealism, for example, that is rooted in the most fundamental premisses of Judaism, has, it seems to me, done great harm in the modern age. That dreadful speech Charlie Chaplin gives at the end of The Great Dictator made me gag instinctively, even before I understood why. I also find the theories of Kevin Macdonald (The Culture of Critique) about the partly malign influence of Jews on modern American culture very persuasive — though this is not an endorsement of Macdonald's theory of 'group evolutionary strategies,' which I do not understand. And like (I suppose) every other Gentile, I have often been irritated by Jewish sensibilities, and occasionally angered by them. For an example of what I mean by that last, recall the Spectator incident of 1994. In October of that year, the London Spectator — a literary and political magazine of impeccable gentility — published an article titled 'Kings of the Deal,' analyzing, in a thoughtful and entirely unthreatening way, the dominance of Jews like Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, and Jeffrey Katzenberg in Hollywood. To the amazement of the Spectator's editor (who was Dominic Lawson — a Jew!) this innocuous article caused a storm of outrage in the U.S.A. The young author, William Cash, was denounced from the pulpits of political correctness — that is, from the Op-Ed pages of the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times. Prominent American Jews like Leon Wieseltier went into high-hysterical mode, denouncing Cash as the new Julius Streicher and so on. The storm went on for weeks, led by a howling mob of buffoons — Barbra Streisand, for example — who had certainly never read, nor probably even heard of the Spectator up to that point. (I have been reading it for 30 years, and have also written for it.) It was a display of arrogance, cruelty, ignorance, stupidity, and sheer bad manners by rich and powerful people towards a harmless, helpless young writer, and the Jews who whipped up this preposterous storm should all be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. Taken all in all, though, I am proud to call myself a philosemite, and even at low points like the Spectator affair still, at the very least, an anti-antisemite ... What an astounding story theirs is! 'How odd of God, to choose the Jews.'"

A Troubling Upsurge of American Anti-Semitism,
CBN News, February 4, 2003
"For many years, the United States has been a safe haven for Jews, a place where they could practice their religion freely. But a recent upturn of anti-Semitism on university campuses, and throughout America, has left many Jews feeling uneasy and wondering whether America will continue to be a place where they can live free from persecution ... What is happening here reflects an increase in global anti-Semitism that has many, like the Jewish Anti-Defamation League's Robert Leikind, alarmed. 'There's a growing feeling within the Jewish community of being besieged. And there's sort of a sense among people that it feels like the 20's and 30's. I'm not saying it is the 20's and 30's. I'm saying people feel like it is. The world no longer feels like a safe place,' Leikind said. Anti-Semitism shows up as Jewish stereotyping in the Arab media. And in Europe, which has seen a dramatic rise in anti-Semitic activity, hate messages fuel daily acts of violence. In France, home to Europe's largest Muslim and Jewish communities, synagogues have been burned, Nazi and Islamic graffiti scrawled on homes and businesses. And anti-Semitic ideas spread throughout the world more rapidly than ever before through the Internet. Even the old lie that the Holocaust was a hoax has taken on a new life and a new audience. And the rumor that Israel was responsible for the 9/11 attacks spread like wildfire over the Internet ... 17 percent of Americans hold views about Jews that the A.D.L.. calls 'unquestionably anti-Semitic,' while another 35 percent hold views that are somewhat anti-Semitic, suggesting that a 'strong undercurrent of Jewish hatred persists in America.' Negative attitudes toward Israel are triggering the anti-Semitism that is creeping into American society. According to the A.D.L. survey, slightly more than half of Americans, 51 percent, said the U.S. has been tilting too much toward Israel. And 20 percent of Americans surveyed agreed with the statement: 'Jews have too much power in the U.S. today.' Those same negative feelings toward Israel have spilled over onto American college campuses, where anti-Semitism is being fueled by the 'Divestment from Israel' movement. The divestment campaign calls on American universities to stop investing in companies that do business with Israel."

Anti-Semitism now sprouts from the left: professor. Arafat has replaced Castro as radicals' darling, Toronto conference told,
National Post, February 11, 2003
"The true threat of 'the new anti-Semitism' emanates not from right-wing nationalists, but from the left and anti-globalization activism, a University of Toronto conference on anti-Semitism heard yesterday. 'Before the [Second World War], the right rather than the left was the paramount source of hatred and contempt for European Jews,' said Todd Endelman, a professor of modern Jewish history at the University of Michigan. 'This is no longer true. On the right, anti-Semitism no longer functions as a cultural code or a rallying cry, while on the left, it has become entangled with and draws energy from ... anti-Americanism, Third Worldism and the anti-globalization campaign,' Dr. Endelman said. The two-day conference, called Anti-Semitism: The Politicization of Prejudice in the Contemporary World, brings together nearly two dozen academics to probe the roots and scope of anti-Jewish bias and hatred. Yesterday, scholars defined the differences between the old anti-Semitism that was embodied in Nazi Germany and the often more subtle manifestations seen today. Anti-Semitism is again on the rise, said Dr. Endelman. 'There is more hostility to Jews in Western Europe now than there was a decade or two earlier.... Alongside the taunts of hooligans and the ravings of skinheads, expressions of overt hostility have sprouted in the liberal media.' Dr. Endelman offered examples, including the New Statesman, the flagship weekly journal of the British left, which carried the cover headline 'A Kosher Conspiracy?' with artwork that would not have seemed out of place in Nazi Germany, and the Italian daily La Stampa, which carried a cartoon of an Israeli tank attacking Jesus in a manger ... Steven Zipperstein, a professor of Jewish culture and history at Stanford University, said Israel is in danger of being 'written off by much of the left and, perhaps, by [many] liberal opinion-makers in the Western world, as this decade's South Africa,' he said, referring to international opposition to that nation's former apartheid regime. 'In Europe, hundreds of academics, primarily in England, pressed the European Union to cease its dealings with Israeli academics and their institutions as a protest against Israeli policy in the occupied territories,' said Dr. Zipperstein ... There is a clear distinction between thoughtful disagreement with Israeli policies and anti-Semitism, he said. Dr. Endelman suggested the line is crossed when opponents: question the legitimacy of a Jewish state and Jewish nationalism, but no other state or any other nationalism; blame the Arab-Israeli conflict on Jews alone; and when there is an obsessive concern for the 'sins of the Israelis and the plight of the Palestinians' while virtually ignoring other nationalist issues, occupations and human suffering. 'When these lines are crossed, one has left the world of rationale foreign policy debate and plunged into a cesspool of fantasy, obsession, fear and irrationality,' Dr. Endelman said."

[Here's an example of the usual Jewish obsessions with finding "anti-Semitism" in everything and the subsequent Judeo-centric subversion of the political Left. The anti-war movement, in Jewish eyes, is twisted into a debate about "anti-Semitism." A.N.S.W.E.R's answer to this slander follows the excerpt below.]
'Politics of meaning' guru confronts reality --- and is Left a pariah,
by Sam Schulman, Jewish World Review, February 12, 2003
"In the last few days, a flurry of activity has erupted among the anti-war movement. The pro-Saddam, pro-North Korean, pro-Pol Pot organization behind most of the big anti-war demos, ANSWER, has banned Rabbi Michael Lerner from speaking at the San Francisco demonstration this Sunday. Why? Because he's pro-Israel. Lerner's supporters are rightly incensed about this smear. How can such a man be regarded as pro-Israel? A group of largely Jewish writers, intellectuals, poets and other publicity-seekers argue, furiously, that he cannot be called pro-Israel ... But what's really staggering is the reaction of other Jews and friends of Lerner to this well-deserved snub. About 150 have signed a statement that humbly begs the leaders of the antiwar demonstrations to let Lerner speak. The signers include such Jewish luminaries as Jack Newfield, Professor Howard Zinn, Ariel Dorman, Michael Berube of Penn State, Ariel Dorfman, Katha Pollitt, Eric Alterman, Jon Wiener, Matthew Rothschild, Editor ot The Progressive, Stanley Aronowitz, Bogdan Denitch, Phyllis Cheslerl, Andrew Gumbel, Dr. Aryeh Cohen, University of Judaism, Los Angeles, Terrence McNally, Marge Piercy, Sean Strub, POZ Magazine, and Larry Gross (and please forgive me if I have stigmatized any of these people as Jews if they are not). This petition bravely urges the rally organizers to let this 'Anti-War Rabbi' - as they style him - speak. They want Lerner to address this rally, backing a cause that is fundamentally, unavoidably, and gloriously anti-Semitic."

[Michael Lerner, a liberal Zionist, is the editor of Tikkun magazine and is so self- (and Jewishly) obsessed he was once caught writing "Letters to the Editor" under fake names so he could carry on public conversations with himself.]
FOUR COALITIONS RESPOND TO MICHAEL LERNER,
ANSWER
, A.N.S.W.E.R, February 11, 2003
"In the last day, as anti-war forces around the country have been working together to build for this weekend's important mobilizations, we at A.N.S.W.E.R. have been taken by surprise by a campaign initiated by Michael Lerner and furthered by David Corn (a reporter for the Nation and Fox News) and others that has sought to deceive the anti-war movement and to misdirect its energies to instead focus on fraudulent claims of victimhood by Michael Lerner because he was not asked to speak at the San Francisco demonstration this Sunday. This attack has now been picked up by ultra-right, pro-war forces in an effort to defame the movement. We have heard from many who have been anguished by the false claims put forth by Lerner. The following is a statement by the four major anti-war coalitions that are co-sponsoring the San Francisco rally on Sunday, February 16 that sets the record straight. The four coalitions are Not in Our Name Project, United for Peace and Justice, the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, and the Bay Area United Against War. Please post where necessary to clarify Michael Lerner's deceptions -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FEBRUARY 12, 2003 ... We would like to clarify the misunderstanding regarding Rabbi Michael Lerner's perception that he was 'banned' from speaking at the peace rally. His charges are untrue, and we wish to set the record straight. ... One of the first agreements that was made between the groups organizing the Feb. 16 anti-war protest was that none of the coalitions would propose rally speakers who had publicly attacked or worked to discredit one of the coalition groups. When members of the Tikkun Community, who have actively participated in the organizing meetings for Feb. 16, suggested to Bay Area United for Peace and Justice, that it propose Michael Lerner as a speaker, it was explained by members of UFPJ that since he had publicly attacked A.N.S.W.E.R in both the New York Times and Tikkun community e-mail newsletters, his inclusion in the program would violate the agreement among the Feb. 16 organizing groups. It was this issue -- Michael Lerner's public attacks against one of the anti-war coalitions - that resulted in his not being formally proposed as a speaker on Feb. 16; his views on Israel and Palestine had nothing to do with it. Within the anti-war movement, there is a wide spectrum of diverse and opposing views regarding Israel and Palestine, and those views will be heard on Feb. 16. On that day, two rabbis, David Cooper and Pam Frydman-Baugh, both of whose views are similar to those of Michael Lerner, will be speaking. To reiterate, the fact that Michael Lerner was not invited to speak on Feb. 16 was not the consequence of a veto by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition. None of the coalitions have veto power over the Feb. 16 program. We strongly abhor all forms of racism and bigotry, including anti-Semitism. At the same time, we don't believe that criticism of Israeli government policies should be labeled as anti-Semitism any more than criticism of U.S. government policy should be labeled as anti-American."

Pearce to talk at Sunday's anti-war rally, but Lerner 'blackballed',
Jewish Bulletin of Northern California, February 14, 2003
"Michael Lerner is off the podium at Sunday's anti-war rally, but Rabbi Stephen Pearce is on. The senior rabbi of the largest congregation in Northern California is among the Jewish voices who will speak out against a U.S. invasion of Iraq at the San Francisco rally, which is expected to draw well over 100,000 people. 'I think it's important that someone from the mainstream Jewish community be represented [at the rally] even if I don't agree with all the organizations sponsoring it,' said the spiritual leader of San Francisco's Reform Congregation Emanu-El. 'If the Jewish community doesn't make itself heard on this, it will subject itself to anti-Semitism. We need to show we have a voice in this community by not being absent.' The anti-war rally here is one of many taking place throughout the country, with another major event scheduled in New York. Other Jewish leaders speaking here will include David Cooper, spiritual leader of Berkeley's Kehilla Community Synagogue, and Rabbi Pam Frydman Baugh of San Francisco's Or Shalom Jewish Community ... While highly critical of Lerner, Ernest H. Weiner, executive director of the local chapter of American Jewish Committee, declined to comment on Pearce's appearance at the rally. But he did say that Jews choosing to march should be aware of with whom they are associating. Weiner's gripe is with International ANSWER, (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism), a socialist group aligned with the Workers World Party, which is one of the rally's primary sponsors. Calling it a Marxist, anti-American and often anti-Semitic group, Weiner said attending an ANSWER-sponsored rally only advances its agenda ... Pearce said the Jewish state would only figure into his remarks if he followed a speaker critical of Israel, adding that in his view, the Israeli-Palestinian issue had no place in the dialogue about a war in Iraq. But Cooper said he will definitely talk about Israel, and he was up-front with organizers, telling them he will do so from the perspective of a pro-Israel Jew. 'I will be speaking as a person who loves Israel and fears for Israel's security,' he said ... In a widely circulated e-mail, part of which was printed in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal, Lerner wrote: 'It is offensive and outrageous that those of us who wish to protest against what we see as a fundamentally unjust war must be subjected to a barrage of slogans and speeches that are one-sidedly hostile to Israel, as though our opposition to war had suddenly made us champions of Palestinian groups which use terror and violence against Israeli civilians."

[Question: What EXACTLY is this Polish station's "attacks" on Jews? Until we know this, how can we pass fair judgement on the new Catholic TV station, unless criticizing the Jewish community and Israel is -- by definition -- a moral crime. Also note that Cardinal Glemp, who is portrayed below to be in opposition to the new TV station, also came under enormous attack by the international Jewish community a few years ago as an "anti-Semite" during the Carmelite nun controversy near Auschwitz.]
Controversial Polish Catholics enter TV. The group has angered Poland's Catholic Church,
BBC (UK), February 13, 2003
"A controversial Polish Catholic group whose hugely popular radio station has been accused of intolerance and anti-semitism has been awarded a licence to open a television station. The hard-line Catholic Lux Veritatis Foundation, run by Father Tadeusz Rydzyk, says the Tvam satellite channel will mainly broadcast religious programmes but also aims to educate and inform the Polish people. The license was granted despite widespread controversy surrounding Radio Maryja, the station founded by Father Rydzyk shortly after the fall of communism in Poland. The station now claims around five million listeners. Critics say Radio Maryja's mixture of sermons, prayers and hymns is underpinned by a xenophobic message that frequently attacks the European Union and Jews. The head of one political party has accused the station of spreading hatred, intolerance and disrespect for people with differing viewpoints, and it has also come under pressure from Poland's Catholic Church. The country's Primate, Cardinal Jozef Glemp, started moves to close down the station's fund-raising offices in Warsaw last year. BBC Warsaw correspondent Nicholas Walton says the expansion of Father Rydzyk's media empire into television is likely to increase the reach of his message and cause further concern among his many critics. Tvam's license was granted on Thursday by Poland's National Radio and Television Council, and the station is expected to begin broadcasting later this year."

Professor's e-mail raises concerns of intimidation,  
Canadian Jewish News
, February 13, 2003
"Trent University student Sara Berniker was astounded when she returned to school after winter vacation to find an e-mail titled 'Jew-baiting' waiting for her in her inbox. The message was sent to the Trent Jewish Students Association (TJSA) list by Prof. Michael Neumann, a Jewish philosophy professor at the university. Neumann was responding to another e-mail sent to the TJSA students the day before by B'nai Brith Canada's national campus co-ordinator, Arieh Rosenblum, about the organization's efforts to highlight possible anti-Israel and anti-Semitic writings and activities on campuses and to respond to them. In his message, Rosenblum expressed concern about an article by Neumann that was, in Rosenblum's opinion, 'anti-Israel and anti-Semitic' in its 'premises, tone and intent,' and asked the students if the professor expressed similar views in his classes. The article Rosenblum was referring to is called 'What is Anti-Semitism?' and was published in the June 4, 2002 edition of Counterpunch, a left-wing magazine. Neumann responded to Rosenblum's e-mail, which was forwarded to him, with the comment, 'It is people like you who endanger and corrupt the Jewish people' ... Prof. Derek Penslar, the director of University of Toronto's Jewish studies program, said Neumann's views are not new. His articles, he said, are part of a far-left, fringe discourse, but 'the Internet has made these views more accessible.' Technology has increased the availability of these kinds of views, Penslar said, and now the question is, 'How do we deal with it?' When asked about possible responses the university could take, Penslar said, 'There are situations when university administrators have to censure academics' to ensure that all students feel comfortable on campus."

The unsavoury tales of Hoffman

Jewish Chronicle (UK), February 14, 2003
"Tasteless: an anti-Semitic cartoon Hoffman sent to the Jewish editor of California-based Skeptic magazine ... This week's [London] Evening Standard column by the writer A. N. Wilson draws heavily on the previously published work of Holocaust-denier Michael A. Hoffman II, and an armed forces veteran Brigadier General James J. David. Hoffman, in particular, is familiar to American organisations that deal with white supremacists and Holocaust-deniers. Wilson concluded his piece, headlined 'Israel's record speaks for itself,' by advising readers to read 'The Israeli Holocaust Against The Palestinians' by M. Hoffman and Professor Moshe Lieberman, giving an address from which this could be obtaine ... His website, The Campaign for Radical Truth in History, is almost wholly devoted to anti-Israel and anti-Jewish polemic. Lawyer Norm Gissel, whose successful $6-million civil suit two years ago forced the breakup of the Aryan Nations' compound in Coeur d'Alene, said this week that he was 'amazed that a journalist would take this flake and raise him to a respectable status' ... In 1994 he sent an anti-Semitic cartoon (pictured) pouring scorn on the Holocaust to the editor of Skeptic magazine, Michael Shermer, who had criticised Hoffman's articles." [A.N. Wilson's article at the London Evening Standard is noted online as being "unavailable" anymore, i.e., it has been censored. Wilson's article is here, from someone who cut and pasted part of it.

In Defense of Anti-Semitism,
by Edgar J. Steele, Conspiracy Pen Pal, February 15, 2003
"I wanted to call this, 'Why I am an anti-semite.' It is telling, indeed, that even I finally knuckled under and chose a less sensational title. The silence in America concerning jews is simply deafening, isn't it? The old adage has it that, when visiting a foreign country, to ascertain who really runs things, one need determine only who is spoken about in whispers, if at all ... No, Israel does not run America, but the shadowy cartel that does run America is solidly behind Israel. Israel is that cartel's mistress, America its dowdy wife. No, not every member of that cartel is jewish, but so many are that it might as well be exclusive. There was a time, in the not-too-distant past, when I thought that jewishness was religious and cultural, possibly racial, too - but so what? After all, American jews are generally well off, well educated, well spoken, a little clannish and well connected. Just like you and me, only better dressed and with trust funds - like rich Mormons, maybe. It is an outlook shared by most Americans. It is wrong. This common misperception will prove fatal to America, just as it has to so many nations down through time. This is where I am supposed to utter the obligatory, 'I'm not anti-semitic, I'm really just anti-zionist.' That is a cop-out and I refuse to do it, even though strictly true. I am appalled that all jews allow the zionists among them to fall back into their ranks, hiding behind their jewishness, while hurling charges of anti-semitism at those they dislike - and their fellow jews don't say a word about it. In the law, we call that a conspiracy and we lock up the co-conspirators just like the perps. Ok, I'll play. I'm anti-semitic. So what? Do you really blame me, after all that you have done to me, my family and my country - nay, the world? Let's get the terms straight. Joe Sobran really is right on the money regarding 'anti-semite,' first of all. Ultimately an antisemite is whatever a jew says - whoever a jew dislikes - and, ultimately, jews seem to dislike everybody else. In fact, I have seen jews acknowledge that everybody who isn't a jew is, by definition, anti-semitic. Kind of like the rationale underlying hate crime laws, which are only applied against white people, because all white people are deemed racist, per se. 'Jew.' It's a race, not a religion. Facts are facts. The majority of Israelis are atheist. At this moment, jews are doggedly trying to craft a deadly virus that will select people, such as Arabs, for their DNA differences from jewish DNA. And I don't want to hear all this buzz about Khazar versus Sephardic jews or who deserves to claim to be descended from the Biblical family of Abraham. There is a group of people scattered throughout the world that calls itself jewish. We all know who they are, just as they do. They are racially identifiable, even if of two or three flavors. They get the label 'jew,' and that is reality, history aside. 'Zionist.' Used to mean those who worked toward the establishment of a jewish homeland. Now it means jewish supremacist, pure and simple. Kind of like white supremacist, only kosher. Zionists are the real problem and they are found among the ranks of jews everywhere. They are the ones that always cross the line and get the whole lot of them thrown out of a country. You don't believe this? Ok, then you offer a single logical reason why it has happened, time and again, in all the European countries. Zionism is racism of the first order. Yes, jews do get persecuted. What gets overlooked is the reason. Kind of like focusing on the rights of the murderer and not his victim."

''Orwellian" anti-Semitism,
By John Chuckman, YellowTimes.org, July 25, 2002
"George Orwell understood the power of words, and he understood the power of ideology to utterly corrupt their meaning ... The word anti-Semitism, after the Holocaust, became a terrible epithet imbued with the blood of millions of innocents. Now, less than 60 years later, it is being twisted and abused, even trivialized, by, of all people in the world, some Jews. This word is carelessly, foolishly thrown around today, particularly in the United States. Write something criticizing policies in Israel, and you are anti-Semitic. Stand up for reason, justice, and decency - applied to all, not just to some - and you are anti-Semitic. Point out the fact that a murderous thug is now the prime minister of Israel, and you are anti-Semitic. I actually had one individual write me saying that he knew I was glad Jewish children were being murdered. This was written to someone who gave up the country of his birth rather than murder children in Vietnam. The words are precisely the same kind of filth I receive from true anti-Semites or black-hating racists aroused by other issues. Let any kind of violent crime be committed anywhere today, and if the victim is Jewish, the crime is, ipso facto, anti-Semitic. The very government of Israel becomes involved, as it did in the recent murder in Los Angeles airport by a distracted, demented man. Another example is the murder of a Jewish man with a beard and a yarmulke by a young drugged-up thug in Toronto. Literally, teams of people busied themselves trying to prove there was anti-Semitic intent, their acts rendering the victim less important than his identity. (Lest anyone misunderstand how unusual that murder was, the murder rate in Toronto, a city proud of having the most cosmopolitan, diverse population in the world, is a tiny fraction of that for any American city.) ... Talk about hideous language, language that loses its meaning to ideology, consider the frightful words casually written recently by an American Jew, a lawyer, advocating the execution of the relatives of suicide-bombers. This lawyer quotes scripture, the Torah, to justify a repulsive idea. But you cannot hide behind ancient scripture, the stories of people who lived twenty-five centuries years ago, to defend what is plainly barbarism today. Do we quote the Incas on the appropriateness of human sacrifice? Or the writings of the Holy Inquisition on burning heretics alive? And why not? Because civilization's sense of morality, thank God, develops over time. Thus we see the kind of intellectual and moral debasement Mr. Sharon's blood-soaked policies yield, with some using scripture to defend serial murder. Others using epithets like anti-Semitism against those who object. Not to mention a president of the United States too intellectually and morally weak to say "stop, enough!"

[Typical Jewish political effort to toxify the anti-war, anti-Jewish racism, and anti-Israel movement as itself "hate."]
German peace movement criticized, [in the "Breaking News" section],
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, February 18, 2003
"The Berlin Association Against Anti-Semitism accused the German peace movement of anti-Semitism. The group issued the criticism following a demonstration Saturday of some 500,000 anti-war protesters in Berlin. 'From the start of the demonstration, it became clear that groups were involved whose worldview includes nationalism, racism and anti-Semitism,' said the letter, signed by about 100 scholars, Jewish religious and communal leaders, and activist groups from Germany and abroad. 'Revisionist banners and anti-Israel chants were heard. Israel was depicted as pulling the strings in the Iraq conflict; its politicians were cursed as ‘child killers,’ and a few flags of the Islamic extremist Hamas and Hezbollah groups were waved,” the letter added."

[Israeli invasion of Belgium?]
Belgium: Waiting for the Guillotine,
by Isaac Kohn, Israel National News, February 19, 2003
"'Unpretentious, hypocritical slagheap of bigotry surrounded by a thick halo of transparent anti-Semitism.' No other phrase can best describe the Belgian court decision to 'try' top Israeli officials for alleged 'war crimes' supposedly committed in her past wars against Arab terrorists. Specifically, Belgium intends to put on trial former top Israeli leaders (including Prime Minister Sharon, at the end of his tenure) who presided as military commanders during the Lebanese War of 1982. This modern blood libel perpetrated by Arabs and swallowed in its entirety by Belgium, is not only preposterous, but the cynicism that oozes from the core of this idiotic, partisan decision, begs for a strong, eye-for-an-eye, response. Having brandished the sword of bigotry in defiance of common-sense, Belgium is in dire need of an immediate, Israeli (and American - how far are the Belgian show trials against Viet-Nam era US servicemen?) counter-punch, which will transform the Belgian roar into a soundless twitter ... Should Belgium insist on proceeding with this abysmal, anti-Semitic ruling in order to pursue Israeli leaders, I suggest that Israel reciprocate on a non-stop tit-for-tat. The archives of world history are packed to the rafters with the criminal behavior of various Belgian personalities, in the not so distant past... and present. Israel should seek the immediate indictment and prosecution of the current Belgian Government due to its diligent acquiescence to the extortion process being propagated by the Islamic world against world Jewry. Its silent collaboration with the ongoing Arab attempt at genocide of Israelis and Jews in general fits perfectly with its anti-Jewish stance in WW II. While the crematoriums haven't yet cooled off entirely, while the millions of exterminated Jews (with explicit Belgian complicity) silently demand revenge and retribution against Belgian politicians, past and present, these same should be put on trial for the slaughter they committed among the people of the Congo. The tortured souls of multitudes of enslaved Congolese natives scream for justice, retribution and punishment of scoreless criminal Belgian businessmen, who committed untold heinous atrocities in the employ of an expanding Belgian empire. Belgium, beware! The next head in the guillotine may be yours."

'JEWISH' CRACK SPURS POLITICAL WAR OF WORDS,
By David Seifman, New York Post, February 22, 2003
"A city councilman found himself in a firestorm yesterday by suggesting an anti-war resolution hasn't been passed by the council because many Jews feel it's 'not in the best interests' of Israel. Councilman Robert Jackson (D-Manhattan) made the comment during an interview Thursday on Brian Lehrer's popular WNYC radio show. 'New York City is the home away from home for most Jews,' Jackson responded when Lehrer asked why the council was lagging behind municipalities around the country in opposing a war against Iraq. 'And this is seen by many members of the Jewish community as a resolution that will go against Bush and, in the long run, will not be in the best interests of the state of Israel.' Lehrer announced on the air that irate Jewish listeners were lighting up his phone lines minutes after those remarks were uttered. Assembly Dov Hikind, who represents one of the city's largest Jewish communities in Borough Park, Brooklyn, yesterday ripped Jackson as 'divisive.' 'It's sad he has to decline into the mud of anti-Semitism,' said Hikind. 'It only does one thing. It divides us.' Council Speaker Gifford Miller's office had no comment on Jackson's remarks. Other colleagues defended Jackson - but called his words poorly chosen. 'Bob Jackson is no anti-Semite, and not opposed to the Jewish community,' said Councilman Oliver Koppell (D-Bronx), who represents a large Jewish constituency in Riverdale. But Koppell said the problem with Jackson's comments are that they suggest American Jews would place Israel's interests before those of the United States."

It's OK to Eat Belgian Chocolate,
by Uri Avnery, Uri Avnery, February 22, 2003
"'Don't eat Belgian chocolate,' the Israel consul in Florida ordered the large Jewish community there. In Israel, anti-Belgian curses reached an ear-splitting new crescendo. Miserable Belgium! Mad Belgium! Megalomaniac Belgium! And again and again, Anti-Semitic Belgium! Neo-Nazi Belgium! The Israeli ambassador was, of course, recalled from Brussels. No wonder, how can Israel keep an ambassador in the world capital of anti-Semitism? The storm broke when a Belgian court decided that Ariel Sharon can be sued for alleged war crimes, but only after finishing his term as Prime Minister of Israel. Israel army officers connected with the 1982 massacre in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps can be sued even now ... Well, it were the Jews who demanded, after World War II, that all countries put Nazi war criminals and their allies on trial. [Nazi fugitive Adolf] Eichmann was judged in Israel according to the Israeli 'Law for bringing the Nazis and their Helpers to Justice', which does not recognize any borders. More recently the Knesset enacted another law, enabling Israeli courts to judge perpetrators of any crime committed against Jews anywhere in the world. If so, what's wrong with the Belgian law of 'universal jurisdiction', that allows Belgian courts to judge was criminals from all over the world? Immanuel Kant promulgated the Categorical Imperative: 'Act as if the principle by which you act were about to be turned into a universal law of nature'. But then, Kant was probably an anti-Semite. Hundreds of years ago, the world adopted a legal doctrine that allowed every country to judge and hang pirates, irrespective of their ethnic identity, origin and area of activity. The assumption was that the pirate is an enemy of humanity at large, and that therefore every country has the right – indeed, the duty – to judge him. The Belgian law against war crimes is a step in this direction, and I hope that many other countries will follow suit."

Author accused of anti-Semitism. Critics compare book to Mein Kampf, say it could encourage racists,
Prague Post (Czech Republic), February 26, 2003
"Last summer, the Supreme Court ruled that the publication of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf could not be banned. Now, a new book that some have decried as anti-Semitic has sparked a new legal battle. Within two weeks of the mid-February release of Petr Bakalar's Taboos in Social Sciences, a lawsuit was filed to halt the book's publication. Critics have denounced the work as racist propaganda. 'It seems to be more dangerous than the publication of Hitler's Mein Kampf,' said Tomas Jelinek, chairman of the Prague Jewish Community. He said the book could become a manual for Czech racists and anti-Semites.The 300-page book, which is presented as scholarly research with about 400 footnotes, describes theories purporting that levels of human intelligence are based on race and ethnicity. The book 'tries to bring new arguments about the influence of the Jews in the world and about the role of Jews in undermining the role of Christian societies,' Jelinek said. 'As a citizen of the Czech Republic, I found many arguments in the book outrageous, and I don't understand the scientific methodology of the book,' he added. 'What was it that he wanted to prove? What was it that he wanted to say?' Brisk sales Olomouc-based publishing house Votobia printed 4,500 copies. It does not plan to translate the book for sale in other countries. Within one week, 4,000 copies were sold. 'The book is dangerous because it appears as scientific work. And its form corresponds to it,' said Prague sociologist Tomas Kamin, who filed a lawsuit against Bakalar. The lawsuit is based on paragraph 260 of the penal code. The paragraph states: 'Someone who supports or promotes a movement that explicitly aids the suppression of the rights of man or promotes ethnic, religious, nationalist or class hatred against some person will be punished by one to five years in prison.' 'The author has only chosen quotations from specific sources so that they correspond to his objective. And his goal, in my view, is to present racist and anti-Semitic views,' Kamin said. Bakalar, 33, rejects the racist label ... Petr Jungling, owner of Votobia, said he anticipated the negative responses. 'I read it and, of course, I don't agree that it is racist,' he said. Since its publication, the book has received positive feedback, Jungling said ... 'The motivation of many endeavors is boredom, and I was bored by the conventional psychological authorities and the political correctness,' [Bakalar] said. 'Political correctness and science cannot go together.'"

Anti-Sharon newspaper cartoon provokes charges of anti-Semitism,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, February 27, 2003
"The Israeli Embassy in London has accused a British newspaper of perpetuating the blood libel against Jews after it ran a cartoon that depicted Prime Minister Ariel Sharon eating a baby. The cartoon in the Independent newspaper showed Sharon crouched in the ruins of a village, biting the head off a baby as helicopters circle overhead broadcasting the message 'Vote Sharon.' 'What’s wrong.... You never seen a politician kissing babies before?' Sharon asks in the drawing. The embassy filed its complaint via celebrated lawyer Anthony Julius, who successfully defended scholar Deborah Lipstadt when Holocaust denier David Irving sued her for libel in a highly publicized case in London in 2000. 'The complaint concerns neither politics nor art. It is instead about anti-Semitism,' Julius argued. 'The cartoon associates Prime Minister Sharon, a Jew, with a particularly dreadful crime allegedly committed by Jews — indeed, habitually and exclusively by Jews. It associates him with the blood libel.' Describing it as 'a gruesome, appalling image,' Julius says the cartoon 'has an implicit politics, one which supposes Israelis to be murderous brutes, and Palestinians, martyred innocents' ... The commission has asked the Israeli Embassy whether it is acting on behalf of Sharon. The embassy’s complaint charges that not only Sharon, but also the Israeli army and electorate, are the targets of attack. The Independent rejects the charge that the cartoon is anti-Semitic . Its editor-in-chief, Simon Kelner — who is Jewish — declined to speak to JTA. But he told London’s Jewish Chronicle newspaper: 'I am Jewish myself, so I would be sensitive to anything anti-Semitic. This was a very powerful cartoon and it is clearly anti-Sharon. However, that is very different [from] being anti-Semitic.'” [The cartoon is here].

The Marx of the Anti-Semites,
By John Derbyshire, The American Conservative, [paper edition],
March 10, 2003
[Review of: The Culture of Critique, by Kevin MacDonald, 1st Books, 466 pages]
"The Jew thing. It was said in the kind of tone you might use of an automobile with a cracked engine block, or a house with subsiding foundations. Nothing to be done with him, poor fellow. No use to anybody now. Got the Jew thing. They shoot horses, don't they?
Plainly, getting the Jew thing was a sort of occupational hazard of conservative journalism in the United States, an exceptionally lethal one, which the career-wise writer should strive to avoid. I resolved that I would do my best, so far as personal integrity allowed, not to get the Jew thing. I had better make it clear to the reader that at the time of writing, I have not yet got the Jew thing-that I am in fact a philo-Semite and a well-wisher of Israel, for reasons I have explained in various places, none of them difficult for the nimble web surfer to find. If, however, you have got the Jew thing, or if, for reasons unfathomable to me, you would like to get it, Kevin MacDonald is your man. MacDonald is a tenured professor of psychology at California State University in Long Beach. He is best known for his three books about the Jews, developing the idea that Judaism has for 2,000 years or so been a 'group evolutionary strategy.' The subject of this review is a re-issue, in soft cover, of the third and most controversial of these books, The Culture of Critique, first published in 1998 ... The main thrust of this book's argument is that Jewish or Jewish-dominated organizations and movements engaged in a deliberate campaign to delegitimize the Gentile culture of their host nations -- most particularly the USA -- through the twentieth century and that this campaign is one aspect of a long-term survival strategy for the Jews as an ethnicity. In MacDonald's own words, 'The rise of Jewish power and the disestablishment of the specifically European nature of the U.S. are the real topics of CofC' ... The Culture of Critique includes many good things. There is a spirited defense of the scientific method, for example. One of the sub-themes of the book is that Jews are awfully good at creating pseudosciences -- elaborate, plausible, and intellectually very challenging systems that do not, in fact, have any truth content -- and that this peculiar talent must be connected somehow with the custom, persisted in through long pre-Enlightenment centuries, of immersing young men in the study of a vast body of argumentative writing, with status in the community -- and marriage options, and breeding opportunities -- awarded to those who have best mastered this mass of meaningless esoterica ... MacDonald is very scathing about these circular and self-referential thought-systems, especially in the case of psychoanalysis and the 'pathologization of Gentile culture' promoted by the Frankfurt School. Here he was precisely on my wavelength, and I found myself cheering him on."

The Vyshinsky of the philo-Semites,
by Henry Gallanger Fields, The Last Ditch / Thornwalker, March 3, 2003
"Only a few days after I first wrote about The American Conservative's descent into PC, what appeared atop the cover of the March 10 issue but the promo, 'Derbyshire on Anti-Semitism.' How daring! And just what America is crying out for, too — another article on anti-Semitism. In my original piece I predicted — in jest, actually — that Joshua Muravchik would eventually become editor of TAC, and here the magazine stoops even lower by bringing on sycophantic shabbos goy John Derbyshire to smear the courageous Kevin MacDonald in a 'book review' of The Culture of Critique. Derbyshire is a self-styled philo-Semite and a supporter of the Zionist Likudniks who is currently serving as one of Anglo-America's foremost cheerleaders for the war in the Middle East. While milord is the perfect shabbos goy today, in the past (before 9/11), he strayed a teensy bit off the reservation. (Winnie Churchill tended to do the same thing.) For example, in April 2001, Derbyshire wrote on National Review Online that the 'merest remark about the Jews that is not absolutely, irreproachably positive, is secretly plotting to massacre them....' He was, indeed, writing ironically, for he went on to explain: 'One thing you learn, writing for the public, is that anything whatsoever that you say about the Jews will be seen as virulently anti-Semitic to somebody, somewhere.' He continued: 'I also find the theories of Kevin MacDonald (The Culture of Critique) about the partly malign influence of Jews on modern American culture very persuasive.' Rest assured Derbyshire has gotten through that sticky wicket, now branding the hitherto persuasive MacDonald with the lethal charge of anti-Semitism in a scathingly hostile review. If Derbyshire, too, used to be an 'anti-Semite,' back in April 2001, say, he has more than made up for any past indiscretions. Derbyshire's title, 'The Marx of the Anti-Semites,' signals the purposed lethality of his attack."

[The Jewish defense of Israeli racism: criticizing the Jewish Lobby and the impending war on behalf of Israel is "hate."]
Anti-war sentiment borders hate speech. Guest commentary: Masha Katz, Joel Sokoloff, Robert Galinsky, Dan Gruber and nine co-signers,
Oregon Daily Emerald, March 04, 2003
"Free speech -- on which this country was founded -- is the right and privilege of all individuals. With this freedom comes responsibility, which was jeopardized on Feb. 18. At the intersection of 13th Avenue and University Street, a swastika, a symbol of atrocity and anti-Semitism, was depicted with 'Bush=Hitler' written nearby. As Jewish students, we feel that incident warrants commentary. First, using a swastika for political discourse is offensive and unacceptable. The swastika, as utilized by Nazi Germany, is the symbol that was used to unite a nation for the systematic extermination of our ancestors. This was not only the symbol to pool hatred solely against the Jews, but also many other minority groups which were thought to be inferior. The Nazi swastika has forever become the mark of anti-Semitism and hate. There is no denying that President George W. Bush is a controversial political leader. However, the comparison of Hitler to Bush marginalizes the horrors the Nazis committed. Any objective view of recent history and current events will show that this analogy is flawed in many ways. Those responsible should be more aware of the implications of their actions and understand that what they did forms a basis for the resurgence of hate on campus. There is already concern among many that the revitalization of the anti-war movement has brought around hateful thoughts in the masses that are hard to quell once in progress. One example of this is the subtle but strong cartoon depiction of Ariel Sharon in the Emerald ... Although this cartoon is not the specific matter in question, it is obvious that the anti-Israel movement is broadening to include anti-Jewish thought. This all goes back to the line between free speech and hate speech. This is a difficult scale to try to balance because free speech is held so dearly in this country. There is the case that any censorship is a distinct violation of free speech and will just lead to further suppression of free expression. This rationale is valid most of the time, but there must be an awareness that not all speech is conducive to critical thinking and sometimes has the reverse effect. Using hate to rally others behind your thoughts just creates more mindless following and doesn't recognize that there may be people who are deeply offended by this absurd demonstration of insensitivity."

It's not anti-Semitic to connect Iraq and Israel.Palestinians were not responsible for the Holocaust, yet today they are being made to pay the highest price for it,
The Independent (UK), March 6, 2003
"Ten days ago, I described how painful and confusing it was to hang on to precious relationships, in particular with Jewish friends whom I love and trust, who have done much to fight against Islamophobia. I see connections between Iraq and Israel, connections that they find unsettling. Like many liberal Jewish people, they worry that this may be just another excuse to resurrect anti-Semitism, which is very a light sleeper. I know that political criticism of the state of Israel today could indeed validate anti-Jewish hatred, and is doing so, and I am worried that I'm becoming too detached from these fears. I also said, and say so again, in spite of the hundreds of Muslims who have written to disagree, that the anti-war marches should have focused only on Iraq, but that public debates had to discuss both Iraq and Israel because there is an indisputable link between them. The world today needs us all to cross boundaries to places outside our fields of simple loyalties, and this is becoming impossibly hard in the present atmosphere. In response, Howard Jacobson produced a denunciation of me in particular and all those who drag Israel into the current conflict ... We are condemned by Jacobson as anti-Semites because we dare to question Israel. I am obviously a Jew-hater because I use the word 'murdered' for six hundred Jewish victims of Palestinian bombers and the word 'massacred' for over 2,000 (plus 14 more since I last wrote) Palestinian victims of the Israeli army."

Obsessions about Israel,
by Joe Sobran, Focal Point, March 6, 2003
"The other day a Zionist writer accused me of being 'an obsessed critic of Israel.' And here I'd imagined I was an obsessed critic of the U.S. Government. My point is not just that the accusation is silly, but that I don't see why it's even an accusation. A boy in love is obsessed with a girl. A mathematician may be obsessed with a theorem. Beethoven was obsessed with music. I could understand someone saying I was obsessed with the U.S. Constitution, or Lincoln, or Shakespeare. These are subjects I've written books about; I've written columns about them even when they weren't on the front pages. But Israel is seldom OFF the front pages. It's an obsession that's forced on all of us, unless we make an effort to ignore it. Columnists like Charles Krauthammer, Cal Thomas, and William Safire write about it far more often than I do, and nobody calls them 'obsessed,' because, like most pundits, they are always and absolutely on Israel's side. It's only when you occasionally contradict the Niagara roar of Zionist propaganda in the media that you are charged with having an unhealthy preoccupation with Israel. Then you are told that if you can't write something nice about Israel, you shouldn't write about it at all. As I once wrote about another Zionist detractor who kept accusing me of being obsessed with Israel, 'I guess he can't stop thinking about my obsession.' Israel isn't a subject that really excites me; I don't have the energy to write a book about it. But now and then the ironies are too rich to resist. Here is a 'democracy' based on the denial of human equality. Here is an 'ally' that steals military secrets from the United States, while making it enemies it didn't use to have. Here is a 'homeland' for Jews who have never lived there and can't trace their ancestry to it, but who can claim rights that are denied to actual natives of the land. Here is a country that complains about 'terrorism' and keeps electing rulers like Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir, and Ariel Sharon. Lots of other writers are well aware of these incongruities, but they avoid talking about them for fear of professional reprisals. Editors and publishers fear the wrath of Jewish advertisers. Talk about obsession! There is such a thing as an obsessive silence about the obvious. The Victorians thought about sex a lot, but they seldom talked about it, except in cautious circumlocutions. And that is a lot more understandable than discussing an urgent foreign- policy problem in delicate euphemisms. As Michael Kinsley recently wrote, Israel is the elephant in the living room -- seen, but evaded in conversation."

[Non-Jewish puppet speaks for the tribe:]
New York’s Own Anti-Semitism,
New York Sun, March 6, 2003, p. 7
"[Israel] is the only democratic state in the Middle East and the birthplace of Christianity.The cities of the New Testament — Nazareth, Galilee, and Bethlehem — are located here and the Israeli government safeguards them ... I am Catholic and wear a gold cross around my neck, so strangers somehow feel it is perfectly permissible to make anti-Semitic remarks to me as if we belong to some secret organization — the I Am Not a Jew Club. When I was younger, I didn’t think much of it because most ethnic New Yorkers called each other names in jest that are now considered politically incorrect. It took parenthood and a desire to raise my children free from prejudice to make me aware of how ingrained anti-Semitism is in our society, especially here in New York. Recently, I was on the number 6 bus, and as it passed Ground Zero a man I had been talking to asked for my opinion about the proposed design for the World Trade Center ... The man said that he had seen a sign for a Jewish real estate company depicting the restored Twin Towers.Then, he asked sotto voce, 'You’re not Jewish, are you? These Jews just want to build and build. They don’t care about the people who died there' ... In the past, I’ve made various excuses for not attacking such blatant anti-Semitism. When a Hungarian woman who was shopping in a store I once managed told me that she had to be careful what she bought because her mother-in-law was Jewish and 'you know how they are,' I should have asked her what she meant. I didn’t because she was spending a lot of money in my store. When the nurse at my obstetrician’s office claimed that the doctor was cheap with her salary and told me, 'they’re all a bunch of penny pinchers,' I didn’t say anything because I was young and she was a middle-aged shrew. But I am no longer young and I feel no need to be diffident to those who espouse such opinions. In times of stress and community upheaval, this antipathy can turn to resentment and finally hatred. Has everyone forgotten the 1991 three-day pogrom in Crown Heights, Brooklyn when rioters ran through the streets yelling, 'Kill the Jews!'? How could this happen in our great city?"

Subject: THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF B’NAI B’RITH. FACTS VERSUS ITS SMEARS AND LIES,
by Gordon Thomas, yourmailinglistprovider.com
[Thomas's web home page here.]
"The paragraph was short and based on information from NASA and the Israeli’s Space Agency. It dealt with the role of Israeli astronaut, Ilon Ramon, one of the crew of the ill-fated Columbia shuttle. This is what I wrote in that paragraph: 'Astronaut Ilon Ramon was conducting secret experiments on the Columbia to discover new ways to beat Saddam’s threat to use biological and chemical weapons against Israel. For most of his 16 days on board the Columbia, he had been using cameras linked directly to the Israeli Space Agency to study desert dust and wind-drifts emanating from the deserts of Iraq.' In a splurge of rage, the New York based Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, through its 'Anti-Semitism-International' – a newsletter rant on the Internet – accused me of being an 'anti-Israel author', and one of those who used 'the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster for their own purposes, anti-Semites, Holocaust deniers and Israel bashers… promoting warped conspiracy theories'. Abraham H Foreman, the Anti-Defamation League’s National Director even managed to include me in his all-sweeping diatribe that 'even in times of tragedy for the American people, the anti-Semites and hatemongers never let up'. There is much, much more, of this demented hysteria in Anti-Semitism-International. In over 50 years of being a published writer, I have never met such a vicious smear. It’s all the more incredible for when I first reported from Israel, since the Suez Crisis of 1956, I have been repeatedly praised for my balanced reporting about that country. I co-authored the Academy Award multi-nominated 'VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED', a saga of Jewish courage. I arranged for the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC to receive all the research material on this saga. I have lectured widely to Israeli congregations about the pernicious anti-Semitism now rife. I write for a UK newspaper, the Sunday Express, owned by a powerful Jew. I have a huge network of Jewish correspondents and contacts, many of them highly placed in Israel. Would all these good people continue to help me if they thought I was 'anti-Israel' or anti-Semitic? That is what makes outlandish, vicious and dangerous labelling by the League so serious, because if they can label me an anti-Semite, then who else can they damage at the whim of the likes of Mr Foreman? People who cannot reply to their ridiculous accusations. The reality is that, what it espouses to defend – free speech – the League sets out to stifle it. I had asked them to print a simple apology. My request was ignored. Hence this article' ... I wrote the story, and it has been clearly linked as part of the League’s attack on anti-Semites. The truth is that in doing so the League has defamed me – because there’s nothing in my story that can be remotely called anti-Semitic or anti-Israeli ... For some time now I have been aware of the ways the League pounced on those less rich and powerful. It has its followers in all levels of the media: in publishing, in radio and in television. Others who work in those areas have told me of their fear of the League. How it can black-list a book, mobilise an onslaught against a columnist, use its powerful connections in Washington to crush opposition. But until recently, I had no idea just how powerful it could be. The first hint came when I published 'Seeds of Fire' (Dandelion Books), a non-fiction book which dealt with the relationship between Israel and China and the role of Mossad in the United States. The book drew favourable reviews from distinguished critics. Carol Adler, my feisty publisher based in Phoenix Arizona, felt optimistic that the book would continue to sell in big numbers. But suddenly, though she could not prove it, she felt the heat. Barnes & Noble, America’s largest bookseller, withdrew its support for the book. Why? Because it had just announced it was going to collaborate with the stated aims of the League. Seeds of Fire became among the first victims of what I regard as a pogrom against the truth. Carol Adler had lined up a major promotion to build upon the reviews. Suddenly she found that radio and TV appearances were cancelled on national shows ... Last year, I co-published (with Martin Dillon) 'Robert Maxwell: Israel’s Super Spy' (Carroll & Graf, New York). Maxwell, a media tycoon and crook on a grand scale, as well as being a Mossad 'asset' was a staunch supporter of the League. The result was that the League mounted a disgraceful attempt to bury the book. Newspapers that support the League – The New York Times among them – either refused to review the book or used it, yes, you’ve got it, to accuse Dillon and myself of anti-Semitism. When we protested about one such scabrous attack in The Washington Post, it refused to publish our letter."

The Conservatism of Fools: A Response to John Derbyshire,
by Kevin MacDonald
"This is a response to a review by John Derbyshire of my book, The Culture of Critique, that appeared in The American Conservative ... My purpose is to document Jewish intellectual and political movements—movements led by Jews and motivated by perceptions that these movements would advance Jewish interests. I have tried to document all such movements that I am aware of, but this is not the same as documenting Jewish contributions to civilization or culture. ... As a result of his generally positive attitude about Jews and Judaism, Derbyshire is, apart from some minor irritations, quite uncritical about Jewish motives and influence, even when they conflict with the interests of people like himself. He implies that non-Jews should understand Jewish motivation to break down the ethnic homogeneity of their own societies while advancing the interests of Israel as an ethnostate. We non-Jews should understand such Jewish behavior because these outcomes are good for Jews. But, somehow he fails to follow through with this logic, imputing malice to people like me who are concerned about the future of their own people in societies where they are becoming minorities surrounded by groups that, like Jews, harbor deep historically conditioned hatreds toward them. It is quite an extraordinary omission and lapse in consistency by Derbyshire. In the end, the logic is as follows: Jews have made wonderful contributions to civilization. Therefore, non-Jews should welcome Jewish efforts to advance their interests even when they conflict with others ... Derbyshire’s review begins with a chilling account of how critics of Jews simply disappear from sight—their professional horizons diminished if not entirely ended. One thinks of people like Joe Sobran, William Cash, and a host of politicians who have had the temerity to criticize Israel or American support for Israel, or who have called attention to Jewish power and influence in particular areas. Jewish groups have made any critical discussion of Jewish issues off limits, and that’s vitally important because, yes, Jews are a very powerful group. What Derbyshire refers to as Jewish 'world-perfecting idealism' is very much with us and is still wreaking havoc in the modern world, everywhere from the erection of a multi-cultural police state in the United States—the origins of which are the general topic of The Culture of Critique—to the current war for the 'liberation and 'democratization' of Iraq, a war that is being fomented by Jewish neo-conservative activists based in the Bush administration, congressional lobbying organizations, and the media. As with other examples of Jewish idealism, the destruction of Iraq is shrouded in a lofty moral idealism aimed ultimately at securing a rather obvious Jewish ethnic goal — Israeli hegemony throughout the Middle East. That these latest examples of Jewish 'world perfecting idealism' also happen to conform rather obviously to Jewish ethnic interests should be of concern to all non-Jews ... Derbyshire does not think it hypocritical for Jews to promote multiculturalism in the U.S. while wishing to maintain Jewish ethnic dominance in Israel. The hypocrisy comes from the fact that, as I note in Chapter 8 of The Culture of Critique, the Jewish advocacy of Israel as a Jewish ethnostate coincided with a major effort by Jewish organizations and Jewish-dominated intellectual and political movements to supplant the prevailing view of the United States as a European Christian civilization with a European ethnic base. Especially hypocritical is that the disestablishment of the European basis of American identity was performed with appeal to universalist Enlightenment ideals of justice and individual rights, while it pathologized the ethnocultural basis of American civilization that had become an important foundation of American identity by the early decades of the 20th century. Although it is common for defenders of Israel to describe Israel as a democracy based on Western political ideals, I have yet to see any important Jewish organization or intellectual movement pathologize the ethnic basis of Israeli society or challenge the many ways in which Jewish ethnic interests are officially recognized in Israeli law and custom (e.g., the Law of Return). Indeed, the American Jewish community has been complicit in the ongoing ethnic warfare in the Middle East that has resulted in the dispossession, degradation, and large-scale murder of the Palestinians."

[Despite the Jewish Lobby's lock on the major mass media outlets, the bizarre thing is that sordid propagandists like Zuckerman and Hoenlin -- as apologists for Israeli racism and brutality -- in dangling Jewish money and its control of American foreign policy actively CREATE what they can only understand as "anti-Semitism."]
Seeking Allies in the Global Struggle Against Anti-Semitism,
CBN.com,
"Coming on the heels of another Al Qaeda threat against the international Jewish community, Israel continues to be concerned that Jews here and abroad are being targeted with anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiment. While U.S.-Israeli strategic cooperation is closer than it has been in years, and while Israel enjoys a favorable relationship with the majority of members of the U.S. Congress, anti-Israel actions are still flourishing, worldwide. College campus hatred of Jews and Israel; attacks on Israelis visiting Africa; sanctions against Israel in the European parliament; calls for international boycotts against Israeli goods; the torching of synagogues, personal attacks on individuals — all remain tactics used by those who foment hatred against the Jewish people and the Jewish state. Most of the recent threats and acts of violence have come from Islamic extremists. In an effort to combat terrorism against the global Jewish community, a recent conference took place between international Jewish groups and moderate Moslem countries in Central Asia. The purpose was to forge a closer relationship with nations that are favorable towards Israel and the Jewish people. Chairman Mortimer Zuckerman, and Vice Chairman Malcolm Hoenlein of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, spoke to members of the foreign press in Israel about the conference. In Central Asia, a declaration was issued that condemned terrorism and extremism ... 'These countries are on the edge and they are looking to the West, and the Jewish community,' Hoenlein said. Jewish representatives who visited Central Asia found leaders from those nations more than willing to form strategic bonds with western Jews ... Both Hoenlein and Zuckerman see Central Asian countries as a firewall of protection for the international Jewish community. They believe that if one of the nations in Central Asia falls to Islamic extremism, all will be endangered. While these kinds of partnerships are forging ahead, Hoenlein admits that anti-Semitism is a continued worry for Jewish groups in the Diaspora ... Both Hoenlein and Zuckerman feel that anti-Israel sentiments are being expressed as a euphemism for anti-Semitism. And they vehemently disagree with Israel being held to a double standard by the international community, especially when hate groups have a 'great sympathy for dead Jews but have a problem with living Jews,' according to Hoenlein. Today, Jewish leaders claim that the outbreak of anti-Semitism, especially in Europe, has taken on a different identity than in past times. The animosity that was once directed toward the individual Jewish person is now being applied to the collective Jewish community."

[The omnipresent, anti-Jewish Conspiracy Theory: the bedrock of Jewish identity:]
Symposium: Anti-Semitism - the New Call of the Left,
By Jamie Glazov, FrontPageMagazine.com, March 14, 2003
"Contemporary empirical realities demonstrate one undeniable fact: anti-Semitism is no longer associated prominently with the Right. Instead, the primary source of the hatred of Jews now emanates from the Left. In fact, anti-Semitism has evolved into a cultural code and even a rallying cry for progressive radicals throughout the world. This reality is perfectly illustrated by contemporary efforts to pressure Western universities and institutions to divest from financial holdings in Israel. What explains this phenomenon of growing Leftist anti-Semitism? Why has contempt for Jews become the mantle of Leftist politics – or was it actually always the case, but just more subtle? To discuss these and other aspects of Leftist anti-Semitism with us today, Frontpage Symposium has aligned a distinguished panel of experts." Our guests today are Michael Lerner... Judith Klinghoffer ... Leonard Dinnerstein ... and Jonathan Kay, the editorials editor of the National Post who has written extensively on anti-Semitism and the academic Left. [NOTE: The National Post is controlled by avid Zionist censor Izzy Asper and his CanWest Canadian media empire.] ... Dinnerstein: ... [T]here is no doubt in my mind that the current wave of "increased" anti-Semitic manifestations is driven both by Muslim activists and concerns about Israeli policies. Kay: Anti-Semitism is, without doubt, an old phenomenon. Nonetheless, it has definitely found many new converts thanks to the rise of the New Left ... [T]here is a tendency for university activists to swallow wholesale the anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic myths that circulate widely in the Arab media and on pro-Palestinian web sites... Lerner ... What irks many on the Left is when Jews take a larger portion than others relative to their proportion in the population of the world’s wealth (e.g. by being disproportionately represented in the elites of the most piggy society on the face of the earth which has 5% of the world’s population but consumes 25% of the world’s wealth) or when the Jews benefit from the support of colonial or imperial ambitions of, first Britain, and then the U.S., in the Middle East to establish a society benefiting as the single largest recipient of U.S. aid, and then using those benefits to create a society which oppresses Palestinians. Here, a small percentage of people on the Left single out the Jews and Israel for special, and in my view anti-Semitic attention, allowing what could be legitimate criticisms were they spread to all beneficiaries of an unjust global system to be focussed illegitimately on critique of the Jewish people and on Israel, and by ignoring the vicious and immoral acts of terror committed against Israeli civilians by some who advocate the Palestinian cause. Moreover, some groups on the left deny Jews the same right to have national self-determination (and with it all the attendant distortions that nationalism frequently produces) that they champion when it comes to other historically oppressed groups. Klinghoffer: I do not believe that anti-Semitism on left is either new or marginal. It is and has always been enmeshed in the wedge issues of the day. Thus, in the Thirties it became enmeshed in the Stalin –Trotsky power struggle. In the nineteen sixties it became enmeshed with the Vietnam and the Six Day wars and when the left lost the Vietnam war as a mobilizing issue, it increased its focus on the Palestinian one ... As the Haggadah says, 'in every generation . . .' [NOTE: this Jewish religious verse continues ...' they will rise against us.'] Only the excuses are different."

Hillel Reports to Senate Republicans about Anti-Semitism on Campus,
Hillel, March 27, 2003 (Washington, DC — March 26, 2003)
"Hillel's Director of the Center for Israel Affairs and the Israel on Campus Coalition Wayne Firestone joined Rubin at the meeting requested by senators to discuss the rise of anti-Semitism on campus with major Jewish organizations and government representatives. Senators Rick Santorum (PA), Robert Bennett (UT), Sam Brownback (KS), and Norm Coleman (MN) all spoke in support of Senate efforts to eliminate anti-Semitism on campus. Coleman encouraged the attendees to keep senators informed, stressing 'This is not just a Jewish senator being concerned, but it's about all of us.' Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (TN), and Senators Lindsey Graham (SC) and George Voinovich (OH) sent staff representatives. During the meeting, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights Louis Goldstein, said that universities that receive federal funding cannot discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin. Goldstein said that although there are some cases of anti-Semitism on campus pursued by his office, many fall through the cracks. He asked Jewish organizations to help by reporting incidents of anti-Semitism ... Santorum announced a plan to introduce an amendment to the upcoming review of Title IX legislation requiring 'ideological diversity' at universities across the country. Brownback said he would introduce a commission under Title IX to investigate anti-Semitic incidents on campuses. 'We have to hold the universities responsible when there are incidents and claims of intimidation or a student feeling uncomfortable,' concluded Hillel's Wayne Firestone. 'Students in the classroom must feel comfortable to express their views. American campuses are places where everyone can go to express their views freely no matter where they may stand.'" [Hmmm. Except if they stand on the other side of the powerful Jewish Lobby.]

Father Charles Coughlin,
Social Security Online (U.S. Government)
"Father Coughlin first took to the airwaves in 1926, broadcasting weekly sermons over the radio. By the early 1930s the content of his broadcasts had shifted from theology to economics and politics. Just as the rest of the nation was obsessed by matters economic and political in the aftermath of the Depression, so too was Father Coughlin. Coughlin had a well-developed theory of what he termed 'social justice,' predicated on monetary 'reforms.' He began as an early Roosevelt supporter, coining a famous expression, that the nation's choice was between 'Roosevelt or ruin.' Later in the 1930s he turned against FDR and became one of the president's harshest critics. His program of 'social justice' was a very radical challenge to capitalism and to many of the political institutions of his day. Father Coughlin was an early and passionate supporter of President Roosevelt, since he viewed FDR as a radical social reformer like himself. Roosevelt's rhetoric during his inaugural address implicitly promised to 'drive the money changers from the temple.' This was music to Coughlin's ears since a core part of his own message was monetary reform. Roosevelt's early monetary policy seemed to fulfill this promise and so Coughlin viewed him as the savior of the nation. But when FDR failed to follow-on with additional radical reforms, Coughlin turned against him ... Father Coughlin's influence on Depression-era America was enormous. Millions of Americans listened to his weekly radio broadcast. At the height of his popularity, one-third of the nation was tuned into his weekly broadcasts. In the early 1930s, Coughlin was, arguably, one of the most influential men in America. Although his core message was one of economic populism, his sermons also included attacks on prominent Jewish figures--attacks that many people considered evidence of anti-Semitism. His broadcasts became increasingly controversial for this reason, and in 1940 his superiors in the Catholic Church forced him to stop his broadcasts and return to his work as a parish priest."

Road maps and dead ends,
Brattleboro Reformer (Vermont), April 14, 2003 [Editorial]
"If the daily deaths of Palestinian civilians are not enough to make the United States stand up to Israel, then how about the shooting of two Western peace activists within a week, less than a month after American Rachel Corrie was killed beneath the treads of an Israeli bulldozer? Like dozens of international peace volunteers, these brave young people went to Palestine to try to protect civilians, of whom hundreds have been killed during the uprising of the past two years. Here's what they got for their trouble: Rachel Corrie, 23, of Seattle, was crushed to death last month in Gaza as she attempted to block a bulldozer from demolishing the home of a Palestinian doctor. Brian Avery, 24, of New Mexico, was shot in the face in Jenin last weekend as he stood with colleagues on a street corner, waiting to go to a refugee camp where shooting had been heard. He remains in critical condition and may never speak again. On Saturday, Tom Hurndall, 21, of Britain, was fatally shot in the head as he tried to get children out of the line of fire in Gaza. These are quiet heroes, hundreds of miles from the well-publicized front lines in Baghdad, standing in where their governments have failed in their moral obligation to protect civilians being killed by weapons bought with American money. Yet while Jessica Lynch captures American hearts, Rachel Corrie and Brian Avery remain unknown. Two peace-loving Americans and one British civilian have suffered the same fate that befalls Palestinians civilians every day. Still, the Israeli government feels so confident in its actions that it didn't even bother to brief its American diplomats on the Avery shooting. Asked about the shooting four days after it happened, Israel's consul general to New England, Hillel Newman, said he was unaware of it. Nor did he carry out his pledge to find out about it and get back to us. The fact that this shooting was taken so casually as to not even merit mention in a diplomatic brief speaks volumes about Israel's position in this country. Those who dare broach Israel with a critical eye risk the extreme discomfort of the slanderous label 'anti-Semitic,' 'anti-Jew' or 'anti-Israel.' Blind allegiance to Israel and its occupation of the Palestinians is sheer folly, especially now, as the United States attempts to make its way through the new road map of the Middle Eas ... . By perpetuating this occupation, with its total disregard for human rights and international law, [Ariel] Sharon continues to fuel a terrorist breeding ground, and the cycle will continue. The United States cannot sit idly by as civilians are shot, with lawmakers afraid to insist on an investigation or even to support a toothless resolution commemorating Rachel Corrie, while the soldier who killed her is back on the job. What's imperative now is a bold approach to this intransigent problem. American politicians will continue to fear a backlash as long as their constituents remain silent. Call your congressional representatives and tell them what's happening is not acceptable. Urge them to find the courage to stand up to those who would counsel blind faith. We cannot remain blind to Palestine. It exists on no map, but lives fiercely and stubbornly in the hearts of millions. It's time to recognize both states, and the legitimate rights of both peoples to live in security and peace."

Argentine Military Battles Antisemitism,
[Jewish] Forward, April 18, 2003
"In another sign of change in South America, the Argentine military signed an agreement earlier this month incorporating the Anti-Defamation League's educational materials on racism and antisemitism into the curriculum of the country's military schools. The agreement between the army and the Rioplatense foundation, an Argentine human rights group, was supposed to have been celebrated last week in New York with a meeting between the ADL's national director, Abraham Foxman, and Fernando Maurette, Argentina's vice-minister of defense and the person responsible for the project ... Besides his ministerial position and his Peronist loyalties, Maurette heads the international studies center at the Rioplatense foundation. The foundation was started with the support of the Buenos Aires regional government but is now sustained exclusively by private donors. Through some Jewish friends, Maurette contacted the ADL for assistance in tackling the issues of antisemitism and racism in the military schools. He reached an agreement with the American Jewish group in April of last year, which entailed bringing seven officials from the Buenos Aires regional government, including police officials, to the ADL's headquarters in New York for training. In the meantime, the foundation and the ADL worked together to translate and adapt the ADL's 'A World of Difference' manual. Teach-ins and seminars on tolerance were organized last year at police and magistrates' schools. But the main project was to formally incorporate the manual into the curricula of several educational institutions, starting with the military schools. Through his position in government, Maurette had access to the top military officials and pushed the idea."

Americans: The Jews of the World,
by Daniel Jennings, FrontPageMagazine.com, April 23, 2003
"The popular 20th Century Jewish American novelist Edna Ferber once wrote 'the United States seems to be the Jews among nations. It is resourceful adaptable, maligned, envied and feared... its peoples are travelers and wanderers by nature, moving shifting, restless.' Sadly enough, recent events have proven that Ferber was right. The Jewish people and the United States have a lot in common, both are successful, resourceful, adaptable, highly creative, inventive and hated. Like the Jews, Americans are increasingly the objects of hatred, fear, jealousy, bigotry, prejudice, violence and terror from all corners of the globe and the political spectrum. In particular, America and Americans are now the target of a vicious, irrational, destructive, well-organized, well-defined, popular and widespread campaign of hatred, prejudice and hysteria similar to that directed against the Jews before World War II. Anti-Americanism has become as popular and as widespread as anti-Semitism was in the 1920s and 30s and its effects could be just as destructive and as tragic as the wave of anti-Semitism that gave rise to Adolph Hitler and the Final Solution. The historical analogies between anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th Century and anti-Americanism today are absolutely bone chilling. In the early 1920s, all of the world's problems were blamed on the Jews. The Jews had somehow started World War I, Jewish bankers had financed the Russian Revolution, Communism was a Jewish conspiracy to enslave the world, the Jews had somehow engineered Germany's defeat in 1918, Jewish artists and intellectuals were responsible for the decline of culture and morality, Jewish businessmen were responsible for all the problems of capitalism and the troubles of the poor. This was nonsense but it was widely believed even by the most educated and respected of people. Today, the problems of nations and peoples all over the world are blamed upon America."

$10 million award upheld in feud. ADL likely to appeal ruling in couple's defamation lawsuit,
by Karen Abbott, Rocky Mountain News, April 23, 2003
"A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld a jury's $10 million award to a former Evergreen couple denounced as anti-Semites by the Anti-Defamation League after their Jewish neighbors secretly recorded their telephone conversations. The 2-1 ruling by a panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals likely will be appealed by the ADL, which faces spending a fourth of its annual budget to pay the award to William and Dorothy 'Dee' Quigley. The ruling also increases the worries of other advocacy groups and lawyers who help them. The nationally publicized case drew three friend-of-the-court briefs in support of the ADL from other groups and lawyers, contending the danger of huge legal liabilities threatened their ability to work for good causes. The Quigleys sued the ADL and the then-director of its Denver office, Saul Rosenthal, for defamation, violations of federal wiretap law and invasion of privacy. The 10th Circuit panel threw out the invasion of privacy claims Tuesday, but left other claims and the jury's total damages award intact. The Quigleys' attorney, Jay Horowitz, said the ruling may not end the legal dispute. 'The Quigleys have been involved in difficult and extraordinarily expensive litigation for the preceding 8 ½ years,' he said. 'They are extremely gratified by the United States Court of Appeals decision. They are aware, however, that proceedings may continue. For that reason, they must restrict their comments, other than to say that they are committed to continue this battle as long as it takes, and to vindicate their name, their reputation and their rights of privacy' ... The Quigleys' Jewish neighbors, Mitchell and Candice Aronson, consulted the ADL in 1994 after overhearing the Quigleys' telephone remarks on their Radio Shack police scanner. They said they heard the Quigleys discuss a campaign to drive them from the neighborhood with Nazi scare tactics: tossing lampshades and soap on their lawn; putting pictures of Holocaust ovens on their house; dousing an Aronson child with flammable liquid. The Aronsons were advised to record the conversations. Based on the recordings, they sued the Quigleys in federal court; Jefferson County prosecutors charged the Quigleys with hate crimes; and Rosenthal denounced the Quigleys as anti-Semites in a press conference. The Quigleys got death threats and hate mail, including a box of dog feces. Their own Catholic priest denounced them from the pulpit. Later, everyone found out that the recordings became illegal just five days after they began, when President Bill Clinton signed a new federal wiretap restriction into law. The hate charges were dropped, and Jefferson County paid the Quigleys $75,000 after prosecutors concluded Dee Quigley's remarks to a friend were only in jest. Two lawyers on the ADL's volunteer board, who had advised the Aronsons, paid the Quigleys $350,000 to settle a lawsuit. The Quigleys and Aronsons dropped their legal attacks on each other, and neither family paid the other anything. The Aronsons divorced. The Quigleys now live in another state."

Is Anti-Semitism Ever The Result Of Jewish Behavior?

By Kevin McGuire
"Israel is the largest and most dangerous terrorist organization in the world. Israel is currently and has been historically involved in a genocidal war against the Arab world. The Zionist Jews believe they are the 'chosen people' of god and that the world was given to them and is their possession. The Zionist Jews want to establish a Jewish holy land with no non-Jews present. They currently occupy Israel but are constantly trying to expand their borders with their superior military power over their Arab neighbors. No fewer than 2,265 Palestinians have been murdered by the Israelis in the last three years since September 28, 2000. Many of these victims were children, 22.8% were less than 18 years old and 12.8% (that's 291 killed) were less than 15 years old (http://www.palestinemonitor.org/). The Israelis carry out these attacks with armored tanks, helicopter gun ships and fully automatic rifles. The Palestinians must defend themselves with rocks. A typical plan of attack involves ramming an Israeli tank through the home of a Palestinian family and shooting anyone who happens to survive, including children. Then, once the cleansing process has been completed, the town is re-occupied with so called "Jewish settlers". This attitude of racial hatred and genocide is also reflected in the Torah: "Destroy all of the land; beat down their pillars and break their statues and waste all of their high places, cleansing the land and dwelling in it, for I have given it to you for a possession" Numbers 33:52,53. Israel is in violation of far more international laws than Iraq. Although bound by the same laws as Iraq, Israel is 'allowed' not only to possess chemical and genocidal race-specific Anti-Arab biological weapons, but they also have over 300 known nuclear bombs. These weapons, being held in the hands of proven Israeli terrorists, pose a much greater threat to world peace than all of the other terrorist organizations combined. This threat is partially to be blamed on us as American citizens, for doing nothing to prevent it. The Jewish war of genocide is being funded by us, the American tax payer. Since 1973, Israel has officially received $2,500,000,000 in US Foreign aid. Divide that by the current US population and it's over $5,700 paid per US citizen. On average Israel receives $6.3 billion per year, or $17 million per day. (http://www.sustaincampaign.org/). US aid to Israel makes up a full quarter of the Israeli annual budget. In addition to money, we also supply them with military gifts, such as F16 fighter jets, Apache helicopters, gun ships, tanks, machine guns, missiles and bullets. Without the heavy US aid to Israel that they are currently receiving Israel would no longer be able to continue its program of genocide. Each of us contributes directly to the Israeli holocaust waged against the people of Palestine and we each personally purchase the intense Arab hatred for America which caused the 9/11 attacks. American funding of Jewish genocide is not only felt by Arabs in the Middle East. On September 11, 2001 our nation was targeted by Arab terrorists not because they 'hate our freedoms', but because we are supplying the bullets that kill their children. Not only are we forced to pay a serious amount of money to fund the Jewish holy war which benefits America in no way, but American lives are also being sacrificed in service to Israel. Our national 'leaders' say nothing, do nothing, and deny the facts. Israel is the most powerful and dangerous terrorist organization in the world and they have hi-jacked America. Our spineless national 'leaders' refuse to even discuss the Israel issue because the Israeli-American lobby in Washington DC, funded by Zionist Jews, is the most powerful lobby in existence, wielding even more power than the NRA. It is now politically incorrect to question our Israeli policy, because any resistance to demands by Jews is anti-Semitism and that is 'hate,' the label politicians fear most. Our corrupt weakling politicians know that any mention of the Israel problem will be career suicide. They place their own selfish, greedy career and power interests over those of our national interests and the interests of the American people. In closing, here is a 1998 quote from Osama Bin Laden: 'So we tell the Americans as people, and we tell the mothers of soldiers and American mothers in general that if they value their lives and the lives of their children, to find a nationalist government that will look after their interests and not the interests of the Jews.' The continuation of tyranny will bring the fight to America, as Ramzi Yousef and others did. This is my message to the American people: to look for a serious government that looks out for their interests and does not attack others, their lands, or their honor. And my word to American journalists is not to ask why we did that, but ask what their government has done that forced us to defend ourselves. It is our duty to lead people to the light."

News in brief from California's North Coast,
Mercury News (California), May 2, 2003
"The offices of Santa Rosa Junior College's student newspaper were locked temporarily following death threats against the editor for a piece she published attacking Israel and Jews. The piece in the biweekly Oak Leaf appeared six weeks ago. Since then, 19-year-old editor Kristinae Toomians has been the target of demands calling for her firing and an increase in faculty control over the content of the biweekly newspaper. Jewish faculty members have received abusive letters from white supremacist groups. 'The goal was to get a lively discussion going,' Toomians said Thursday. 'I'm sorry for any pain it caused. That wasn't the point of publishing it. It was for debate purposes.' The article, entitled 'Is anti-Semitism ever the result of Jewish behavior?', was written by Mark McGuire, a student who's not a member of the newspaper staff. The piece included inflammatory language, took a pro-Palestinian position and used arguments popular in white supremacist literature. Outrage over the article has extended far beyond the campus and has colored the perception of the college, SRJC President Robert Agrella said. 'The article should never have been printed,' he said. 'If anything good has come out of this, it is that we are finally focusing in on the work of the Oak Leaf, and the staff and the role of the adviser.' Rich Mellott, the adjunct professor who advises the Oak Leaf staff, said he read the piece quickly and saw no reason not to run it. 'It was racially charged and there were a few inflammatory things, but it wasn't libelous and it didn't incite people to violence,' Mellott said. 'The First Amendment isn't there to protect agreeable stories.' Meanwhile, editor Toomians said the furor the article has been a learning experience. 'I was really nervous at first," she said of threatening letters and fliers left on her car windshield, 'but I have a lot of support here, and I'm feeling more at ease.'"

British University Teachers to debate academic boycott of Israel,
By DOUGLAS DAVIS, The Jerusalem Post, May 4, 2003
"Britain's 46,000-strong Association of University Teachers will debate a motion calling for an academic boycott of Israel at its annual three-day conference this week. The motion, proposed by English lecturer Sue Blackwell, of Birmingham University, calls on the union to sever 'any academic links they may have with official Israeli institutions.' Delegates will also be urged not to attend conferences in Israel and to support colleagues who have allegedly been the focus of a 'witch-hunt' because of their support for an academic boycott. The motion is one of 59 that has been selected for debate by the union's six-member agenda committee from several hundred submissions. It has been set down for debate on Friday afternoon, when a number of Jewish academics will be absent because of the onset of the Sabbath. The decision to raise the issue has provoked an angry reaction from some academics, who say it is anti-Semitic and should not be given a public hearing. The union's national executive has recommended that the call for action be rejected, although it has defended its decision to debate a boycott of Israel. Secretary-general Sally Hunt said that the union represents 'a wide spectrum of views on numerous matters. This subject will be fully debated and I am sure those who feel strongly about the issue will put forward their arguments.' Emanuele Ottolenghi, an Israeli lecturer at Oxford University's St Antony's College, condemned the motion as anti-Semitic and contrary to the ethics of the academic community ... Blackwell told the Sunday Telegraph in London that she rejected the charge [of anti-Semitism]: 'I deny emphatically that I am somehow anti-Semitic by bringing this motion,' she said. 'I have been a member of the Anti-Nazi League for many years and a campaigner for human rights. I absolutely condemn terrorism of any kind.'"

Anger over Dalyell's 'Jewish cabal' slur,
by FRASER NELSON, The Scotsman (Scotland), May 5, 2003
"Tam Dalyell, the Father of the House, may be referred to the Commission for Racial Equality after claiming a 'Jewish cabal' operating in both the United States and Britain is driving the governments of both countries into a war against Syria. Eric Moonman, the president of the Zionist Federation in London, has said he believes Mr Dalyell’s remarks constitute a formal offence - and that he is considering a formal complaint to the commission. Mr Dalyell said that he now expects to be victimised because he raised 'a whisper of criticism' about the influence which Jewish advisers hold on Tony Blair, the Prime Minister, and George Bush, the president of the US. The outrage was prompted by Mr Dalyell’s comments in Vanity Fair magazine, where he said the ideas of hardline Jewish White House advisers are being embraced by men of equivalent stature in London. He has named Peter Mandelson, Jack Straw and Lord Levy as the trio which influences Mr Blair in his foreign policy - and are ensuring that Britain follows a "Zionist agenda" in the Middle East. When asked to explain his comments, Mr Dalyell told The Scotsman yesterday he was not anti-Semitic but felt the need to lay out his fears that Zionist ministers may make Syria the 'next stop' after Iraq. 'A Jewish cabal have taken over the government in the United States and formed an unholy alliance with fundamentalist Christians,' he said. The members of this cabal, he said, are Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy defence secretary, Elliott Abrams, a member of the national security council, Ari Fleischer, the White House spokesman, and John Bolton, the undersecretary of state. 'I was asked [by Vanity Fair] what effect this has had on Britain and I said it has fallen on fertile ground here. I mentioned Mandelson, Straw and Levy as being fertile ground. They have all encouraged Blair to go through with this terrible war' ... Mr Dalyell said he is aware about the opposition his remarks caused. 'One is treading on cut glass on this issue and no one wants to be accused of anti-Semitism, but if it is a question of launching an assault on Syria, then one has to be candid.' David Garfinkel, the editor-in-chief of the London Jewish News, said Mr Dalyell’s remarks introduced an anti-Semetic dimension into the debate - and would send shock waves through the community ... Mr Wolfowitz and Mr Abrams are usually named with Douglas Feith and David Wurmser as members of the 'cabal.' All men are prominent figures of the US neo-conservative movement."

Dalyell remarks on Jewish cabal may face scrutiny by watchdog,
By Benedict Brogan, Telegraph (UK), May 5, 2003
"Tam Dalyell, Labour's most senior MP, faces being referred to the Commission for Racial Equality over remarks he made to an American magazine which suggested Tony Blair was unduly influenced by Jewish figures in his inner circle. Prof Eric Moonman, a former Labour MP and current president of the Zionist Alliance, said he had consulted lawyers about comments published yesterday that he described as 'highly inflammatory'. Mr Dalyell, MP for Linlithgow and Father of the House, was alleged to have accused the Prime Minister of 'being unduly influenced by a cabal of Jewish advisers'. The remark, which was not a direct quote but claimed to describe his attitude, appeared in the current issue of Vanity Fair magazine in an article to mark Mr Blair's 50th birthday. Mr Moonman who is a former senior vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, described himself as a long-standing friend of Mr Dalyell but said his views were unacceptable. 'It's the sort of insidious thing I would expect to see in a poorly produced BNP pamphlet,' he said. 'It is bad enough for an MP to start to use this language but it is much worse when he is Father of the House. If he were to point out a cabal of black people, he would be referred to the CRE.' Mr Moonman said he did not believe Mr Dalyell was anti-Semitic. But he added: 'This sort of language is quite wrong and ultimately will do him a great deal of harm. We will look very closely at what he says in the future. I have taken advice from several lawyers and will have further consultations on whether there is a case for a referral to the CRE. I believe there is' ... Mr Dalyell, an opponent of the war against Iraq, is said to have identified Lord Levy, the Prime Minister's special envoy to the Middle East, Mr [Jack] Straw [Foreign Secretary] and Peter Mandelson, whose father was Jewish. He denied he was anti-Semitic. 'I am fully aware that one is treading on cut glass on this issue and no one wants to be accused of anti-Semitism, but, if it is a question of launching an assault on Syria or Iran . . . then one has to be candid,' he said. Last night Mr Dalyell said he was worried Mr Blair was being 'led up the garden path on a Likudnic-Sharon agenda', a reference to Ariel Sharon, the hard-line Israeli prime minister and his Likud party. He said he only used the word "cabal" in reference to figures in the Bush administration. 'The cabal I referred to was in the US. That is the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs,' he said."

Fury as Dalyell attacks Blair's 'Jewish cabal',
by Colin Brown & Chris Hastings, Telegraph (UK) , May 4, 2003
"Tam Dalyell, the Father of the House, sparked outrage last night by accusing the Prime Minister of 'being unduly influenced by a cabal of Jewish advisers.' In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Left-wing Labor MP named Lord Levy, Tony Blair's personal envoy on the Middle East, Peter Mandelson, whose father was Jewish, and Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, who has Jewish ancestry, as three of the leading figures who had influenced Mr. Blair's policies on the Middle East. Yesterday Mr. Dalyell, the MP for Linlithgow, told The Telegraph: 'I am fully aware that one is treading on cut glass on this issue and no one wants to be accused of anti-Semitism but, if it is a question of launching an assault on Syria or Iran . . . then one has to be candid.' He added: 'I am not going to be labeled anti-Semitic. My children worked on a kibbutz. But the time has come for candour.' The Prime Minister, Mr. Dalyell claimed, was also indirectly influenced by Jewish people in the Bush administration, including Richard Perle, a Pentagon adviser, Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy defense secretary, and Ari Fleischer, the president's press secretary."

QUEEN NOOR'S ANTI-SEMITISM,
by Dick Morris, New York Post, May 5, 2003
"OH, that Khadafy! Jordan's Queen Noor assures us that the Libyan dictator and his wife are such a "delightful and charming couple," with whom she spent 'a remarkably pleasant evening.' Strife in the Middle East? It's the Jews who are at fault, her majesty informs us in 'Leap of Faith,' her new best-selling autobiography: 'Jews, Muslims, and Christians had lived peacefully in the Middle East and indeed in Palestine for centuries. It was not until the rise of Zionism and the creation of Israel that animosities took root.' Anti-Semites never attack Jews, the way she tells the tale, but only Zionism or Israel. And nothing is the fault of the Arab nations (who attacked Israel four times and refused to absorb Palestinians into their borders). America? Overrun by Jewish interests: 'Jews . . . achieved influence and power at the highest levels.' Worse yet, friends of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) are 'CEOs of large American corporations and representatives of the top levels of media and entertainment businesses, financial institutions, legal and medical professions and, increasingly, the highest reaches of government.' It's good old fashioned anti-Semitism, dressed up to sound better. Instead of 'shylock,' she speaks of the dominance of Jews over 'financial institutions.' Instead of the Elders of Zion, she speaks of Jews' power over the 'highest reaches of government.' Instead of going after Jews in Hollywood, it's the 'top levels of media and entertainment businesses.' Bigotry and prejudice leaps out from each page of the book ... Anti-Semitism always advances disguised. Queen Noor attacks Israel, Zionism and Jewish power in America. She complains of Jewish domination of banking, business and media. She doesn't go out into the street and yell 'Death to the Jews,' but Queen Noor, King Hussein's fourth wife, has written an anti-Semitic book nonetheless. Americans, and Jews, should not do her the favor of buying it."

Fascists, Communists Unite Against President Bush,
By Brian Sayre, FrontPageMagazine.com, May 5, 2003
"The pudgy, balding man openly waved his protest sign - 'Hands off Iraq - No Blood For Zionism!' Below that bit of anti-Semitism, he'd printed the web address of the National Alliance - the openly neo-Nazi, white-supremacist organization founded by William Pierce ... On Friday, May 2nd, I watched this bigot march alongside young people wearing the t-shirts of Anti-Racist Action. It was a strange day in Santa Clara, California, where the remnants of the broken anti-war protests gathered to protest President Bush's appearance and speech at a nearby manufacturing plant ... What I saw were extremists, plain and simple. A few themes stood out: their belief that President Bush is a fascist, their belief that America is a terrorist nation, and their rampant anti-Semitism. First, the obsession with fascism. Leaving aside the real fascists, who walked openly among them, many in the small crowd took pains to equate President Bush with Adolf Hitler, and the American government with Nazi Germany ... The last theme, of course, was anti-Semitism. That's full-time ideology and profession of the National Alliance, which was openly wandering the streets, happily talking with the protestors about Jewish conspiracies. Besides our pudgy, already-mentioned National Alliance supporter, an elderly man with no sign went from person to person, pressing small slips of paper into their hand: "It's All About Israel." A masked, black clad man roamed the crowd with a sign that read "Zionist Puppet" on one side, "No More Wars For Israel" on the other ... And don't be fooled - this kind of nonsense wasn't just coming from cranks in the audience. An anonymous activist from the South Bay Mobilization, never identified by his full name, told the crowd that 'neoconservatives' had promised Bush the presidency for life, as long as he followed the polices of Israel. He spoke this through a microphone, as an official rally speaker. Anti-Semites don't just attend these rallies, they speak from the stage. If I were a Democrat like Joe Liebermann, I might want to ask my fellow candidates, Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich, what their supporters were doing mingling with neo-Nazis, flashing their signs and recruiting for their campaigns? Of course, the protest was organized by the usual suspects, the communist Workers' World Party-controlled International ANSWER."

Rabbi speaks out against anti-Semitic propaganda,
By Laura Crimaldi, Milford Daily News, May 7, 2003
"A local rabbi sided yesterday with the police decision to nab three men accused of littering area lawns with anti-Semitic propaganda over the weekend, saying the arrests might give the trio pause. 'The police should look for a legal excuse to lock them up even if it's protected under the First Amendment,' said Rabbi Mendy Kivman of Milford. Ian C. Clark, 22, of 50 Edgewater Drive in Blackstone; Michael P. Medeiros, 24, of 18 Saunders St. in Pawtucket, R.I.; and Jeffrey Broadbent, 40, of 1034 Tremont St. in North Dighton; are charged with defacing property, littering from a motor vehicle, being disorderly and disturbing the peace, court papers show. Broadbent is also charged with carrying a dangerous weapon after police recovered a folding knife and a box of .40-caliber ammunition, police said. Police arrested the trio over the weekend after police were deluged with complaints about the anti-Semitic propaganda being dropped at doorsteps. The National Alliance, a West Virginia-based white supremacist group, penned the propaganda, urging people to warn their children about Jews, end aid to Israel and attack the so-called 'Jewish media control.' Kivman acknowledged the role free speech could play in the criminal case ... Defense attorneys for Broadbent and Medeiros attacked the charges as assaults on free speech and promised to fight them in court. 'It's classic free speech protected by the First Amendment,' said attorney John Manni. 'I don't see how they could charge him with any of these.' Police Chief Gerard Daigle scoffed at the notion police did not have sufficient grounds to press charges. 'To me, we did what we had to do,' he said. Police never cited free speech in filing charges. Rabbi Barbara Symons of Temple Etz Chaim in Franklin offered words of comfort to the community. 'The more they speak out, the more the kind of people who pass out that sort of information will see that their message is falling on deaf ears. They are their own comfort,' she said. Bellingham Selectman Ann Odabashian said she didn't want to give the three defendants much credence. 'In today's world, where we have so much to worry about, it's very small-minded people that come up with this,' she said."


*Not Enough? There's much, much more to know about the accusation of Anti-Semitism.
