Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

"Hate Is Not An American Value" (video)

"Rich-man antisemitism," it has been termed by one historian.  You know, the perception that Jews are plutocrats and consequently wield a disproportionate amount of power in the world.

A code-word for Jews in antisemitic circles that perhaps don't want to be seen to wear their judeophobia on their sleeve is of course "international financier".  It very often goes hand in hand with nutjob conspiracy theories, of course.

And this sort of antisemitism - viewing a shadowy cabal of mega-rich Jews as exerting undue influence over the fates of nations - has reared its extremely ugly head at the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations in the United States, along with a disturbing amount of anti-Israel rhetoric.

Not everyone, however, be they ever so liberal, seems to want to admit that this is so - thus leading Democrats have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the deplorable Jew-hatred.

That's why the following video has been made by the Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI).  Says  ECI's chairman, William Kristol:
"It’s not surprising that elements of the modern left are antisemitic.  It is surprising that respectable liberals have praised the protesters while ignoring the antisemitism. Liberals have pretended to see nothing hateful and hear nothing hateful, and therefore have said nothing to rebuke their allies. Will they now speak up?”

  1. It kind of is an American value. When times are good everyone accuses the Jews of benefiting more. When times are bad everyone blames the Jews for that.

    And the day I hear Pelosi stand up for anything, even if she doesn't believe it, which she does not, my head will explode. In the meantime, the US is one Obama reelection away from Yellow Stars.

  2. "... In the meantime, the US is one Obama reelection away from Yellow Stars...

    The yellow stars are already in evidence, unfortunately made with the help of quite a few self-loathing Jews (or Jew haters CLAIMING to be Jews). But, borrowing from Empress Trudy: I fear that a replay of the Holocaust is one Obama election away. :(

  4. A Notice:

    The YouTube channel palwatch ( http://www.youtube.com/user/palwatch ), which is the YouTube channel of Palestinian Media Watch ( http://palwatch.org ), which is an organization that observes, and translates into English, and posts, with English subtitles, content of the television media of the Fatah-PLO-PalestinianAuthority and Hamas television stations, has been terminated. Fatah-PLO-PalestinianAuthority and Hamas, on their television stations, state, in Arabic, their intentions to annihilate Israel, and broadcast racist genocidally anti-Jewish propaganda. Palestinian Media Watch presents, with English subtitles, that programming broadcasted by Fatah-PLO-PalestinianAuthority and Hamas. Palestinian Media Watch endeavors to present, to the world, that programming broadcasted by Fatah-PLO-PalestinianAuthority and Hamas. The YouTube channel palwatch ( http://www.youtube.com/user/palwatch ) of Palestinian Media Watch ( http://palwatch.org ) had several hundred video clips of the television media of the Fatah-PLO-PalestinianAuthority and Hamas television stations.

    Now, navigating to the YouTube channel palwatch ( http://www.youtube.com/user/palwatch ) results in there not being displayed the YouTube channel palwatch, but, rather, instead, results in there being displayed a page which contains the following message:

    "This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement."

    I suspect that the cause of the YouTube channel of Palestinian Media Watch being terminated was a campaign of false flagging by 'Palestinian' Arab activists, and/or Muslim Arab non-'Palestinian'-Arab activists, and/or Muslim non-Arab activists, and/or Western Leftist so-called "Anti-Zionist"/"Pro-Palestinian" activists (Western Leftist totalitarian anti-Jewish racists).

    That is the genocidal main form of genocidal anti-Jewish racism that the founders and members of the German National Socialist (NAtionalsoZIalistische (Nazi)) political party held toward, and propagated against, the Jewish people.

  5. Hi, Dan. I had not heard that PalWatch is kaput. We live in interesting times...
    I wish I could recall the name of the historian who coined the "rich man antisemitism" phrase - of course, Jews used to be viewed as Bolshevik revolutionaries or as plutocrats - a no win situation, of course.

  6. A dozen bad apples doesn't taint an entire orchard. Occupy Wall Street is not, in and of itself, a anti-Semitic movement. There are small minded opportunists everywhere. Let's not make that pathetic "Jew Bastard" slinging puke a boogeyman. He is a loser and a never-will-be who has nothing to accomplish in life.

    Corporations are treated better than humans in America. Let's not forget that.

  7. Are you serious? You're going to slander an entire movement of well-intentioned, young, educated, frustrated people by implying they're all jew-hating goons? Seriously? This is such propaganda it makes me sick. Way to capture the whackos on tape instead of the intelligent folks there who can actually articulate their argument clearly and concisely. Shame on you for this ad, this is so unfair to all the good people down there.
