Birzeit U. Kicks Out Haaretz Left-Winger Amira Hass for Being Jewish

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

The Birzeit University near Ramallah threw out Haaretz’s left-wing journalist Amira Hass from a conference on “occupied Palestine” because she is Jewish.

The daughter of two Holocaust survivors, she has become over the past few years the most pro-Palestinian Authority journalist in Israel, has lived in Gaza and Ramallah and has written in Haaretz that Arab rock-throwing is a “birthright and duty of anyone subject to foreign rule.”

Her credentials as an enemy of a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria are impeccable except for the fact that she is Jewish.

That is why the organizers of the conference on “Alternatives to Neo-Liberal Development in the Occupied Palestinian Territories – Critical Perspectives” told her she could not cover the event.

The organizers were The German Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and The Center for Development Studies (CDS) at Birzeit University.

Hass wrote in Haaretz on Sunday, “During the first presentation on Tuesday, two lecturers from the CDS approached me within ten minutes of each other, asking me to step outside…. ‘Am I not allowed to be here?’ I asked, half-kidding, but one of the lecturers answered that there was a problem.

“When I registered at the entrance of the conference I wrote next to my name the institution I belong to, Haaretz. For the past two decades, the lecturer said, there has been a law at Birzeit stipulating that Israelis (Jewish Israelis, that is) are not allowed on the university grounds. The students manning the conference registration desk saw that I had written ‘Haaretz,’ realized I was an Israeli, and ran to tell the university authorities. The security department in turn went to the conference organizers, the lecturer said. She and her colleagues were afraid, she told me, that students would break into the conference hall in protest over my presence.”

Hass added that she did not see anyone protesting, but a rumor spread that students had attacked her. Rumors often become self-fulfilling expectations, and one faculty member whom Hass said has known for 40 years “walked past and said, ‘This is for your own protection.’”

Her ouster was a classic example of a non-Arab leftist, in this case a Jew, embracing an Arab or Islamic cause only to get stabbed in the back.

Most leftists eventually see the light or simply are brainwashed so much that they forever blame the Zionists and the West for their fate.

Hass’ article included a hint of some enlightenment. When realizing she had to leave, “I was at that moment reminded of the image that Israelis commonly have of Palestinians: irrational hotheads,” she wrote.

But before coming to her senses completely, she comforted herself by hearing the protests by her colleagues and supporters in the Rosa Foundation who said they would not have agreed to allow the conference to take place at Birzeit without her being allowed to attend.

“In the past twenty years, I have entered Birzeit University dozens of times, and have been an audience member at various academic conferences there,” Hass wrote. “I have also interviewed faculty members both on and off campus. A year ago, an economics lecturer refused an interview, telling me, “It’s not personal. But you know what the rules are.”

It is nothing personal?

Wake up, Amira, you are Jewish. You were kicked out not because you are a journalist and not because you are from Haaretz. You were kicked out because you are a Jew, like it or not.

To your credit, your remain Jewish.

But you don’t take it personally that you are now allowed to do your job, which you think is to promote the Palestinian Authority campaign against Israel, because you are Jewish?

Five Anti-Zionist Doctors ‘Hijack’ Medical Journal to Dump on Israel

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Two of five doctors who hijacked a highly respected British medical journal in August to publish a venomous anti-Israel article also used their email to endorse a video by white supremacist and former KKK Grand Wizard and a  David Duke.

The Lancet, described by the London Telegraph as ”a venerable and well-respected British medical journal, published an “open letter for the people of Gaza ”that condemned Israel’s counter-terror campaign. The “letter” actually was an article.

Other medical publications, most notably the British Medical Journal, routinely allow their authors to exploit their positions to dump on Israel, but the endorsement of David Duke’s video crossed all red lines – except Lancet’s.

The journal’s editor, Dr. Richard Horton refused to apologize for publishing the article co-authored by a KKK enthusiast and told the Telegraph, “I don’t honestly see what all this has to do with the Gaza letter. I have no plans to retract the letter, and I would not retract the letter even if it was found to be substantiated.”

The dwindling anti-Israel crowd, whose soap box get smaller and smaller and smaller as Hamas war crimes become larger and larger, is so intellectually bankrupt that Dr. Horton had to resort to total illogic to back himself. “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand,” he said.

And this man calls himself a doctor?

The David Duke video in question is called “CNN, Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matri, in which Duke claims that “the Zionist Matrix of Power controls Media, Politics and Banking” and that “some of the Jewish elite practices racism and tribalism to advance their supremacist agenda.”

The two doctors-for-Duke are Swee Ang, an orthopedic surgeon, and Paola Manduca, a professor of genetics at the University of Genoa in Italy.

They not only are not embarrassed over their open anti-Semitic statements but actually defend them.

“This is a shocking video please watch. This is not about Palestine – it is about all of us!” wrote Dr. Ang after watching the Duke video.

Dr. Manduca, besides endorsing the video, “forwarded a message alleging that the Boston marathon bombings were in fact carried out by Jews,” according to the Telegraph. In one e-mail, she wrote, “Let us hope that someone in the FBI is smart enough to look more carefully at the clues in Boston and find the real culprits behind these bombings instead of buying the Zionist spin.”

Dr. Ang explained to the newspaper, “I didn’t know who David Duke was, or that he was connected to the Ku Klux Klan. I am concerned that if there is any truth in the video, that Jews control the media, politics and banking, what on earth is going on? I was worried.”

Here is a woman, a doctor, who saw something on the Internet and was worried that “if” there was any truth to it, he was worried.

And this woman calls herself a doctor?

If she was worried about truth in what he reads, she should start with the Koran.

As for Dr. Manduca, she said that she is not anti-Semitic, God forbid, and that her “right of freedom of opinion” justifies her statements.

No, she is not anti-Semitic but in the same breath told the Telegraph, she “does not agree or value the politics of the government of Israel, nor of many others, including Jews in and out of Israel.”

Another author of the article in Lancet is Dr. Mads Gilbert, who told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in 2001 that he supported terrorist attacks in the “connect” that 9/11 atrocities was a result of Western foreign policy.

Arson Attack on Brussels Synagogue

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Arsonists set fire to a Brussels synagogue on Tuesday, that was previously firebombed in 2010, but Jewish officials are not ready to declare the incident as anti-Semitic.

The wife and two children of the synagogue’s caretaker, who was not present at the time of the arson, suffered slight smoke inhalation after the fire broke out on the fourth floor of the building, where they live.

“It would seem that the fire was set deliberately,” Laurens Dumont, a spokesman for the city prosecutor, told AFP.

Jewish community officials were even more careful and declared that anti-Semites may not have torched the synagogue because Torah scrolls and sacred books were not burned.

Of course, the arsonists could have anticipated that the fire would spread and would destroy the Torah scrolls, but Jews in the Diaspora often prefer to suppose that they are not targets of hate crimes and that they are not in danger.

Maybe it was not an arson.

Maybe it was not anti-Semitic.

We hope it wasn’t, but don’t be surprised if it was.

Maybe the fact that the synagogue is located in a heavily-populated Muslim area is only coincidental.

Maybe.

If You’re Anti-Israel Then You’re Anti-Semitic

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Here Is Why Being Anti Israel IS Antisemitic:

How many times have you gotten in an argument with an anti Israel troll on the internet and heard them spew words like Israel are Nazis or what we are doing to the Arabs is worse that what the Nazis did to the Jews?!

Besides having a total gap in historical knowledge, these claims are purely antisemitic. Blaming Jews or the Jewish State with Nazism is the same as telling us we bake children blood in our Matzah (The old blood libel that was used as an excuse to boycott and slaughter Jews).

As soon as you call them antisemitic they pull out the “not everyone who is anti-Israel is an antisemite!”

I AGREE!

Some anti-Israel activists are simply ignoramuses, but those who know the facts and still blame Israel for genocides that never happened are purebred antisemites!

This is Fatah (Palestinian Authority) NOT Hamas!

Am I pulling out the antisemitic card to try to justify occupying the Arabs? Well, let’s listen to what the Arabs themselves have to say and then you tell me if I am being paranoid!

I listened to this several times and I did not here the word ZIONISTS, only Jews! I also did not hear about the settlements and the call for Jihad did not end with Israel. I heard an old Islamic passage talking about committing genocide against the entire Jewish as well as the American people! If you have a problem with the Jewish State fighting these people then guess what? You are a full fledged antisemitic bastard (excuse my French).

Just in case you thought this was a result of the settlement movement, here is video of the Muslim religious leader who teamed up with, yup, you guessed it, Hitler and way before a single settlement was on the ground!

 

 

Neo-Nazi Vandalism in Sderot

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Israel Police have arrested three teens in connection with anti-Semitic vandalism involving destruction of property in the southern Israeli city of Sderot.

The gang painted green swastikas and slathered dripping red Satanic symbols on cars in the city, where residents have already been traumatized by years of incessant rocket fire from Gaza.

Police officials said in a post on the Twitter social networking site Monday morning the three suspects confessed to their connection with the attacks under questioning during the investigation.

No information was released about the identity of the suspects.

Yale Chaplain Quits In Wake of Letter Blaming Israel for Rising Anti-Semitism

Monday, September 8th, 2014

The Rev. Bruce Shipman, an Episcopal chaplain at Yale University, resigned in the wake of his letter to The New York Times that blamed rising anti-Semitism in Europe on Israel.

The Episcopal Church at Yale issued a statement on Sept. 4 announcing that Shipman, “on his own initiative, had resigned as Priest-in-Charge of the Episcopal Church at Yale, effective immediately.”

The statement does not reference the letter to the Times, saying instead, “It is our belief that the dynamics between the Board of Governors and the Priest-in-Charge occasioned the resignation of the Rev. Shipman.”

“The Episcopal Church at Yale, its Board of Governors, the Bishops of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, and the Rev. Bruce Shipman are all committed to a civil dialogue on difficult issues that divide peoples of this world and pledge ourselves to the prayerful and humble work of reconciliation and peace in our hurting and divided world,” the statement concludes.

Shipman’s Aug. 25 letter to the Times was in response to an Aug. 20 Op-Ed by Deborah Lipstadt, an author and Jewish history professor at Emory University, detailing the rise in European anti-Semitic incidents.

His letter said the trend “parallels the carnage in Gaza over the last five years, not to mention the perpetually stalled peace talks and the continuing occupation of the West Bank.” It also said that “the best antidote to anti-Semitism would be for Israel’s patrons abroad to press the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for final-status resolution to the Palestinian question.”

Shipman later apologized to Yale students in a letter to the editor of the Yale Daily.

“Nothing done in Israel or Palestine justifies the disturbing rise in anti-Semitism in Europe or elsewhere,” he wrote.

Self-Acclaimed Jew Pleads ‘Not Guilty’ to Assaulting MP George Galloway

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

A caretaker who says he is Jewish and was charged with pushing anti-Semitic British Member of Parliament George Galloway in the face last Friday has been remanded to prison, without bail, after pleading not guilty .

Neil Masterson, a former manager for the BBC, allegedly assaulted Galloway when the MP was posing for pictures. Galloway was hospitalized for broken ribs and bruises, including a lump on his head, before being released the following day.

The prosecutor in the case told the court that the Jewish suspect told police, “I didn’t want him to think I’m scared, Galloway is anti-Semitic, and I am Jewish.” However, a post on his Facebook page states he is Catholic.

He is a caregiver for a middle-aged woman, and his defense lawyer told the court that she “would be lost without him.”

One tweet called him a “Zionist terrorist.”

Masterson pleaded not guilty to the charge of an assault that was “religiously aggravated” on Galloway, who recently declared that the city of Bradford that he presents will be an “Israel-free zone.” Police have investigated Galloway for the remarks.

The court denied Masterson bail, and his trial is scheduled for later this month.

Galloway is far from the most popular politician in Britain and is such an embarrassment to the government that the assault was ignored by politicians.

The silence led a London Telegraph columnist to complain, “Galloway has received no public message of sympathy from a single MP from any party – nothing from Speaker Bercow, from the Prime Minister, or from any of the other elected political leader.“

The writer called the assault an ”attack on democracy,” but public figures apparently figure Britain was better off with Galloway out of action, even if for only a day.
