Not to be outdone, during a match in London against the same Jewish team, British fans of their opponent, West Ham, rained down anti-Semitic chants in support of the aforementioned Di Canio and came up with a few of their own, such as “Adolf Hitler’s coming for you” and “You’re getting gassed in the morning.”  To emphasize their disdain, they made hissing noises, like the sound of a gas chamber.  Even for the British, infamous for boorish behavior at sporting events, this was over the top.

Next up is Brazilian cartoonist Carlos Latuff, who targeted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for defending Israel in the face of incessant rocket attacks from Gaza.

Latuff is famous for depicting Jewish people and Israeli leaders in the most contemptible ways.  Many people including this writer believe that political cartoons cast a greater negative stereotype upon Jews than lengthy essays.  For that reason alone, Latuff was placed at #3 for 2012.

At #2 is a conglomerate of Jew-hatred led by a little imp espousing Jewish derision in mammoth proportions: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  Amongst a myriad of anti-Jewish invective over the years, this past July he’s quoted as saying: “It has now been some 400 years that a horrendous Zionist clan has been ruling the major world affairs.”  When taken in context with past pronouncements calling for the complete annihilation of Israel, some might argue that this Holocaust-denying anti-Semite is actually moderating.  (But not to worry: if he is, the head of Iran’s armed forces, Major General Hassan Fiouzabadi, isn’t.  This past August, Fiouzabadi is quoted saying: “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause, the full annihilation of Israel.”)

Finally, here it is: the Wiesenthal winner of the 2012 Grand Prize for Jew-hatred.  This coveted dishonor is shared by Muhammad Badie and Futouh Abd al-Nabi Mansour, two religious leaders belonging to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.  The folks at Wiesenthal claim that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood produced the worst anti-Semitic/anti-Israel slurs over the past year.  Badie, the Brotherhood’s supreme spiritual guide, bemoaned “Jewish control” and the “spread of corruption on earth.”  What’s his remedy?  Unremitting jihad.

Badie’s partner in Jew-detestation, Mansour took it a step further delivering a nationally televised sermon calling for Allah to “destroy the Jews and their supporters.”  According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), he went on to say: “Oh Allah, disperse them and rend them asunder, Oh Allah, demonstrate your might and greatness upon them.”   Interestingly, last month’s “mediator” of the Israeli/Hamas ceasefire, Brotherhood strongman and Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi watched the sermon at a mosque and was heard uttering the term “amin” (amen) to every fiery invective hurled at Israel and the Jewish people.

And that sums up the latest entry in a long and ignominious list.  From the ayatollahs in Iran to the hallowed halls of the United Nations, 2012 was a good year for the anti-Semites of the world.  I won’t hold my breath, but hopefully 2013 will see a reversal of this trend.

  1. I cannot understand how such idiots are allowed to speak with such filth==I can understand how their feebled mind works–love=david and patsy.

  2. I would add Janos Adler the current head of state of Hungary as #1 on the list.

    Unlike the others on your list he has actually spoken out in favor of the Jews of Hungary.

    But actions speak louder than words and in his case inaction.

    In Budapest Lazlo Czatary who murdered more than 15,000 Hungarian Jews, including my grandmother, sits comfortably in his apartment. He is under house arrest but knows that since Janos Adler has not questioned why he is not yet on trial he will never have to face justice.

    Why do 400000 Jews still live in the Ukraine? Because they know they would find no much factual attitude difference wherever.
    By a way, becoming regular, the Lviv Jewish Festival attracts cheering crowds of folks from different tribes, not local and visiting Jews only,

    Probably, a reality of Jewish opportunities in First World mainstream might more thoroughly be approach by authors considering anti-Semitic trend in 2013.

  4. As it make absolutely no sense whatsoever, it must be a form of Mental Illness triggered by a combination of racism, stupidity and envy.

    “Why do 400000 Jews still live in the Ukraine? Because they know that a factual real situation not to differ much wherever. Becoming traditional, the Lviv Jewish Festival attracts cheering crowds of folks from the different tribes, not local and visiting Jews only.
    Probably, the authors considering anti-Semitic trend in 2013 should pay more attention to a reality of mainstream opportunities for the Jews even in the First World” -what is interesting, being a copule of minutes ago submitted from iPod after a range of attempts fallen, this article comment #3 somehow has disappeared from a JWP page.

    Hopefully, this post will survive in Facebook bit longer.

    Hatred, just plain hatred. Too many purple thrive on it.

  7. Henri Korn says:

    If we were to add up all the anti-Semites that plague this world, we would run out of zeros. This is also the level of their IQ.

  8. Leon Kushner says:

    After enabling the MB to take control in Egypt and his latest gift to them of 20 F16 fighter jets and 200 tanks, I would have nominated Obama # 1. While most of us have our heads in the sand he is not so quietly turning the world against us.

  9. Harold Taback says:

    You should also prepare a list of quisling Jews.

  10. Somewhere on the list should be the twin Facebook pages I Acknowledge Class Warfare Exists, and I Acknowledge Apartheid Exists. They never fail to find absolutely anything, true or not, photoshopped or not, which shows Israeli atrocities and discrimination toward Palestinians (never distinguishing between Israeli Arabs, and Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza), but never, ever, anything either positive about Israel or showing or mentioning Palestinian atrocities against Israelis. So completely one-sided as to be unmentionable, but they get LOTS of likes, and very few people who are willing to counteract their bias.

  11. Judith Catterall says:

    Good to know…..

  12. Just another reason I don't like those sites. And I'm glad you are one person willing to counteract their bias.

Palestinians hurl stones onto the Israeli side of the separation barrier

From time immemorial, security fences have been built around the world – often in disputed territories to disrupt terrorists, drug smugglers, and illegal immigrants from entering. No doubt, these fences often cause difficulties for native populations in the vicinities they are built. Yet it is only Israel’s barrier that arouses the conscience of sanctimonious hypocrites around the world.

American Jewry – certainly when compared to earlier generations – has become indifferent to the fate of Israel as well as its own. No doubt, poor and uninspiring leadership in both Israel and the United States is a major contributing factor, but it goes further.
