Rampant Anti-Semitism Is Flourishing across the World

Who ever said the anti-Israel hordes hate Jews?

Sitting in my office almost forty floors above ground level in midtown Manhattan last week, I was astounded to be drawn away from my work by chants of “Free free Palestine” and “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” Even up in the clouds, the demonstrators’ voices were clear and loud, almost as if they were just outside my window.

Based on the level of violent protests taking place across the globe, the pro-Palestinians in New York seemed comparably tame – yet no less offensive. For if there is any question that chants of “from the river to the sea” are wishful thinking for the annihilation of the Jewish State of Israel, the calls for “Death to Israel” were anything but vague.

Domestically, pro-Palestinians are using Israel’s defensive military incursion into Gaza as an excuse to let loose on the Jews. In San Francisco, 300 anti-Israel protestors surrounded and threatened 30 peaceful pro-Israel demonstrators. In addition to the usual chants, they screamed, “Long live the intifada, we support the intifada,” calling for violent uprising against Israelis.

At a protest this weekend in Los Angeles, what began as a peaceful pro-Israel event escalated as pro-Palestinians attacked the demonstrators, drawing in Federal Homeland Security officers, one of whom was forced to fire a weapon. Farther north in Seattle, signs and chants reflected more of a general hatred of Jews rather than simply protests regarding the current conflict in Gaza. “Zionist Israel = Nazi Germany”; “Palestine screams terror, Israel screams greed”; “AIPAC Supports the Murder of Children”; and a poster depicting a Jew eating a gentile child with a cup of blood on the side are but a few examples of the anti-Semitic displays.

Not to be outdone by their anti-Semitic brethren out west, here on the east coast (aka the other left coast), protests were not limited to the streets of New York. In Philadelphia, a pro-Israel vigil was interrupted by the typical chants for Israel’s destruction, but it was in Boston where things turned physical as a pro-Israel activist was assaulted by a woman shouting “that Muslims and Christians would someday take possession of Jerusalem and that the ‘Jews will go to hell, inshallah [God willing].’”

Alas, the domestic ugliness is in fact tame compared to the violent demonstrations erupting throughout Europe, reminding us that the hatred that led to the Holocaust during World War II remains alive and well. Last week pro-Palestinian demonstrations in Paris led to hundreds of Jews being besieged inside a synagogue while police clashed with the violent extremists; three Jews were hospitalized. While the pro-Palestinian demonstrators on Paris streets outnumbered domestic events, the violence, which the leader of the French ecology party justified, was quite distressing. One reporter stated, “What I have seen today is Arab hatred against Jews. Pure hatred. Right in the middle of Paris. Don’t try to ‘explain’ or ‘understand’, it was hatred, period.”

This past weekend, a rabbi walking to synagogue in Casablanca was badly beaten while his cries for help were ignored by passersby. Earlier this week, neo-Nazi Islamists took to the streets in Frankfurt chanting, “You Jews are beasts.” The police allowed the protestors to use their vehicles and megaphones, purportedly in order to “deescalate” the situation. In London, protestors stood in front of the Israeli embassy and in “blood curdling speeches” compared “Palestine” to Auschwitz and Dachau as “some mocked the Holocaust, others disfigured the Israeli flag, a few screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’, [and] they all called for the destruction of the Jewish state.”

Despite the latest wave of pro-Palestinian demonstrations, it is important to recognize that anti-Semitic voices are not new. In Europe, anti-Semitism is so pervasive that some are questioning whether Jews even have a future living there. Even before the violent demonstrations in response to Operation Protective Edge, Jews in Europe have been targeted – e.g., the recent murder of four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. France is particularly hostile, with 50% of all racist crimes in France motivated by anti-Semitism despite Jews representing 1% of the population.

  5. These self hating liberal left wing Jews are disgusting and worse than the others. The rest of the world does not make the difference and lumps all Jews together. To see a Jew protest against their own homeland and their own people is just awful.

  14. Paula Martin says:

  20. **** them, they arent close to being a real Jew

  21. Margie Green says:

    It is easier to count the ones that likes us. They are less.

  22. Margie Green says:

    They are busy trying to make people to make people like them. It is why we have such a problem tochas lechas. I don’t care if you don’t like the Jews don’t tell me I am different from all the rest of them I am not.

  23. It must be the younger generation. I suppose they have attended US universities. Some Professors are very good at misleading the youth of today.

  24. SEND THEM ALL TO GAZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  25. That unfortunately also means there are some stupid Jews

  26. Adam Green says:

    Those “jews” who join in with this sort of rhetoric and protests against Israel a land that would take them no matter what if they were ever in need or trouble, are NOT worthy of calling themselves Jews. I am appalled by these scum who are sometimes worse than the terrorists who so desperately try to murder every Jew in the world, not just in HaAretz.

  27. Karin Jeck says:

    Adam Green, I agree with you 100%!!! We are and always will be with Israel.

  32. Jews are are own worst enemy. I’m sure everyone has heard the joke that the problem w/ Judaism is Jews. Here in the US, party loyalty is obviously more important to liberals than their own people. In the words of the late Walt Kelly-”we have seen the enemy and he is us”.

  35. I am absolutely amazed that people actually think this is news. Jew-hatred has been around for as long as there have been Jews. But Jew-hatred and anti-semitism are not exhibited by modern thinking people . . . in a pig’s eye. They just renamed it “anti-Israelism,” and the loons are off and running again.

The annual  Chabad menorah lighting in Sydney has been called off this year because of the murders in the Lindt cafe.

The decision to not publicly light the Menorah in Sydney, epitomizes the eternal dilemma of Judaism and Jews in the Diaspora.

Am Yisrael is one family, filled with excruciating pain&sorrow for losing the 4 kedoshim of Har Nof

Two dreidels from the author’s extensive collection.

What is its message of the dreidel?” The complexity and hidden nature of history and miracles.

Keeping-Jerusalem

Police play down Arab terrorism as mere “violence” until the truth can no longer be hidden.

The 7 branches of the menorah represent the 7 pillars of secular wisdom, knowledge, and science.

Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US

No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?

For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.

It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.

For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.

Israelis now know Arab terrorism isn’t caused by Israeli occupation but by ending Israeli occupation

Anti-Semitism is a social toxin that destroys the things that people most cherish and enjoy.

Amb. Cooper highlighted the impact of the Chanukah/Maccabee spirit on America’s Founding Fathers

Zealousness has its place and time in Judaism; Thank G-d for heroic actions of the Maccabees!

Who ever said the anti-Israel hordes hate Jews?

Many Jews join the Israel-haters with their progressive ideology and politically correct obsessions.

Netanyahu wants more room on the table for the military option to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

On which planet is Obama living on when making ridiculous pronouncements on the Middle East?

Instead of building houses of bricks they have chosen to build a “big tent.”

If Russia stands with Iran, Obama will be forced to stand with Israel or lose the American people to the Republican Party.
