“I wish to declare that the Government of Israel will not ask any nation, be it near or far, mighty or small, to recognize our right to exist.  The right to exist?  It would not enter the mind of any Briton or Frenchman, Belgian or Dutchman, Hungarian or Bulgarian, Russian or American, to request for his people recognition of its right to exist.   Their existence per se  is the right to exist.   The same holds true for Israel.  We were granted our right to exist by the God of our fathers, at the glimmer of the dawn of human civilization, nearly four thousand years ago.  For that right, which has been sanctified in Jewish blood from generation to generation, we have paid a price unexampled in the annals of nations.”

Prime Minister Menachem Begin
70 Years After The Holocaust...Nothing Has Changed...Headlines from 2012-2014

 The most chilling feature of the burgeoning anti-Semitism in Europe is that it does not emanate from governments or leaders but has infected the masses and is growing at the grass-roots level and thus likely to intensify.   European opinion polls express a contemporary version of this approach when they explicitly regard Israel as the greatest threat to global peace and stability — exceeding North Korea, Iran or Syria."
(Article From January 2014)
66% Say Anti-Semitism Has 'Major Impact' On Their Lives
23% of respondents refrained from attending Jewish events or religious services for fear of being attacked on their way there
38% are afraid to wear religious symbols, like the yarmulke or kippah, in public
66% view anti-Semitism as having a major and constant impact on their lives
European Jews believe that their governments view anti-Semitism as an inevitable part of life, without a means of escape or treatment, according to the poll.
77% of European Jews are unwilling to report any incident of anti-Semitic bullying or violence to authorities - whether governmental organizations or non-governmental religious groups.
33% are afraid they will become a victim of anti-Semitic violence
29% are considering emigration because of it
Anti-Semitism online was also a core issue; 75% of European Jews said they had been exposed to anti-Semitism online, in several different forms - through blog posts, social media, YouTube videos, and more
The worst countries for anti-Semitism, according to the report, are Hungary, Belgium, Sweden, and France
The Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) of the European Union will publish the results of its keenly awaited survey, “Jewish people’s experiences and perceptions of hate crime, discrimination and anti-Semitism”. It is the largest survey of its type, covering countries in which 90% of European Jews live - Britain, France, Hungary, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Latvia. 
Europe’s Jews Feel Increasingly Threatened And Abused, Fearing Anti-Semitic Abuse From Muslim Extremists, The Extreme Right-Wing, And Left-Wing Radicals. 
- 75% of Jews questioned believe anti-Semitism is on the rise
- Close to 33% have considered emigrating because they don't feel safe   
- 34% in Sweden and 29% in France said they never wear a Star of David or anything else that could signal their religion
- 7% of the 5,847 respondents experienced some form of anti-Semitic physical attack or threats in the last five years.
- 22% of respondents sometimes avoid “Jewish events or sites” because of safety concerns. 
- These figures are overall European totals. The specific UK totals are likely to be generally less alarming, but it remains to be seen if they will be substantially different.
- The most striking figures released thus far concern Belgium, France and Hungary, where between 40% and 50% of respondents said that they had considered emigrating because they do not feel safe.   
- 26% of respondents experienced anti-Semitic harassment at least once in the year before the survey. This rose to 34% over the past five years.

Almost Seven Decades After The Fall Of The Nazi Third Reich, Anti-Semitism Remains An Intractable Problem In Europe

FRANCE 2013: Ever Hear of the “Quenelle”
It is the new French salute that is the reverse of the Nazi salute exchanged between and used symbolically by anti Semites and those who want to destroy Israel. People photographed using it include a leading French soccer player, a leading US NBA basketball player, the leading and anti Semitic French comedian, right wing politicians and left wing and pro PLO movement members. To the left is French soccer star Nicolas Anelka giving the salute at a major soccer game in a filled stadium and the authorities do nothing. To the right is a man with a PLO Shirt giving the Quenelle salute in front of the Ohr Torah Jewish School in Toulouse France where 4 Jews were murdered. U.S. Spurs point guard Tony Parker has been photographed giving the salute with popular (in France) French anti Semitic comedian Dieudonne. Dieudonne, who has multiple convictions for inciting racial hatred against Jews, designed the Quenelle to emulate the Nazi salute without violating France’s laws against displaying Nazi symbols to cause offense.  January 6 2014 France moved to ban performances by the controversial comic Dieudonne just days before the start of a nationwide tour of a one-man show containing anti-Semitic material.  But, they say it is because of his threat to public order due to the demonstrations and protests he will generate, not the anti Semitic material that is so much of his act.

  "What else can we call criticism that selectively condemns only the Jewish state and effectively denies its right to defend itself while systematically ignoring – or excusing – the violence and oppression all around it?” the Canadian prime minister asked. “What else can we call it when Israel is routinely targeted at the United Nations, and when Israel remains the only country to be the subject of a permanent agenda item at the regular sessions of its human rights council?”

You Are Talking Anti-Semitism".

"In The Past The Most Dangeous Anti Semites Were Those That Wanted To Make The World Free Of Jews.   Today, The Most Dangerous Anti Semites Might Be Those Who Want To Make The World Free Of A Jewish State."  As With Anti Semitism, Anti Israel Activities Start With Delegitimization Of A People Or A Country.

FBI Docs: Alleged Terrorist Training Compound Discovered in Rural Texas, One of 22 Across U.S.  The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.   MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani. The FBI documents that Clarion has obtained show that the group is headquartered in the well known “Islamberg” compound in rural New York. The facility in Texas is known as “Mahmoudberg.” It’s located in Brazoria county on County Road 3 near Sweeny. Sweeny is in far south Texas, southwest of Houston.   MOA members believe the holiest Islamic site in the country is located at their Islamville commune in South Carolina. Other MOA entities include the International Quranic Open University, United Muslim Christian Forum, Islamic Post, Muslim Veterans of America and American Muslim Medical Relief Team.  February 18 2014

Report: Obama Nixes Kerry Plan to Impose Peace Deal on Israel by Instigating a Diplomatic Crisis…For Now
.   Israel's Channel 10 News on Sunday reported that US Secretary of State John Kerry was recently prevented by his boss, President Barack Obama, from instigating a diplomatic crisis with Israel in order to impose his new peace framework.  According to unnamed government sources involved in the ongoing peace talks, Kerry sought Obama's permission to impose his peace terms on both Israel and the Palestinians, knowing that the primary resistance would come from the Jewish state.  Obama is said to have determined that now was "not the time" for such a move. As a result, the sources said that Kerry's peace initiative has "all but collapsed."   February 10 2014.

According to Documents, US Refrained from Bombing Auschwitz 'To Avoid Jewish Influx'.  Referencing Holocaust scholar David Wyman's research, Langfan determined that the US government "purposefully failed to bomb by a definitive government decision in February 1944."    While WRB's repeated requests to bomb the camp were rebuffed by the US army, reportedly the War Department had already decided in secret as early as February 1944 that it would never use military resources ”for the purposes of rescuing victims of enemy oppression.”  According to the documents, the US feared that by saving Jews it would be forced to bring them to America. In internal memos a State Department official specifically warned of the ”danger” that the Nazis ”might agree to turn over to the United States and to Great Britain a large number of Jewish refugees.”  This darker incentive behind the US refusal to bomb Auschwitz is highlighted by the fact that the US clearly was able to do so militarily.  "From the spring to the autumn of 1944, Allied aircraft flew over the camp several times on a mission to photograph German industrial plants a few kilometers away. In the late summer these plants were bombed, but the extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau was never bombed," Yad Vashem comments. January 29 2014

In Holocaust 'America and US Jews Did Nothing'.   "Israeli Jews must look to see how Americans failed European Jews during the 1930s and 1940s in order to see if Israelis can rely on Americans today," stated Langfan. "In the first Holocaust, based on Yad Vashem's historical analysis, the answer is simple: America and American Jews did nothing."   Langfan's response came after Bennett and Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon spoke to Arutz Sheva during the visit to Poland about the American failure to bomb the camps and halt the genocide during the Holocaust.   "It always bothers me that the US could have bombed (the camps), could have made it their mission to stop the killing machine," Bennett commented. "But out of tens of thousands of missions during the war, they did not make an attempt even once. We will never rely on anyone else but ourselves."   Dannon remarked "the US failed to bombed Auschwitz, and when they could have done it they said 'it's not part of the war effort.'" He noted that the horrific realities of the genocide that took place at the camp forces one to ask what the war was for, if not to stop the massacres. Yad Vashem discusses the American reasons given for not bombing the camp, which centered around claims that only victory in the war would save the Jews, and that such bombing missions would "divert forces."   In the final analysis, the Yad Vashem notes "it is clear that the Allies did not marshal the same energy and determination to rescue the Jews as the Nazis did to murder them."     January 29 2014

Christian Persecution? No. Annihilation!  'We Are Faced With A Potential Extinction Of The Church'  In Syria, Iraq And Lebanon.  The first delegation of Syrian Christian church leaders to visit the U.S. since civil war broke out in March 2011 spoke Monday at the Heritage Foundation, issuing a stunning warning that the nation’s Christian population could vanish.  “Today we are faced with a potential extinction of the church,” Patrick Sookhdeo, chairman of the Westminster Institute, warned. “Not just in Syria. We’ve seen it in Iraq. The church could fall in Lebanon.”  January 28 2014
London Holocaust Day Speaker Admires Hitler, Rabidly Despises Jews.  Why was Hassan Farooq, who promotes 'Jew bashing', asked to front last year's official Holocaust Memorial ceremony?  On Holocaust Memorial Day in 2013, a young British Muslim named Hassan Farouq was a participant in the official Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony at London's City Hall. During the ceremony he read out a text about the importance of reflecting upon the consequences of the Holocaust and remembering the victims of Nazi persecution.  Yet Stand for Peace today released clear evidence of Farooq's own rabid anti-Semitic views, including open glorification of Nazism and Adolf Hitler, and questions whether London officials who approved his participation in the ceremony ascribe any value to Holocaust Memorial Day at all.   January 27 2014
Shocking Statistics Reveal Major Upswing In Anti-Semitism In Europe; 66% Say Anti-Semitism Has 'Major Impact' On Their Lives.  'No Reason or Justification' for European Anti-Semitism.  An online survey conducted by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights revealed that in 2013, 23% of respondents refrained from attending Jewish events or religious services for fear of being attacked on their way there; 38% are afraid to wear religious symbols, like the yarmulke or kippah, in public; and 66% view anti-Semitism as having a major and constant impact on their lives.   Worse, European Jews believe that their governments view anti-Semitism as an inevitable part of life, without a means of escape or treatment, according to the poll. 77% of European Jews are unwilling to report any incident of anti-Semitic bullying or violence to authorities - whether governmental organizations or non-governmental religious groups.  33% are afraid they will become a victim of anti-Semitic violence; 29% are considering emigration because of it.   Anti-Semitism online was also a core issue; 75% of European Jews said they had been exposed to anti-Semitism online, in several different forms - through blog posts, social media, YouTube videos, and more.  The worst countries for anti-Semitism, according to the report, are Hungary, Belgium, Sweden, and France.   January 26 2014

When did the EU call in the Palestinian ambassadors about incitement that calls for Israel's destruction?" Netanyahu asked foreign correspondents at his annual new year reception.

Hamas Trains 13,000 Teens to Emulate 'Suicide Martyrs'. Roughly 13,000 high school students participated in a week-long training camp geared to enable the teenagers "to follow in the footsteps of the suicide martyrs."  The "Pioneers of Liberation" camp included weapons training, marching exercises, and "security awareness" classes.  Hamas is engaging in a widespread campaign to raise the next generation of youth to embrace hatred and terrorism as legitimate modus operandi. Instead of devoting time and resources to developing their society, Hamas is teaching its youth to kill.  The Palestinian Islamic Jihad has its own camp with a similar emphasis on glorifying terrorist attacks.  January 15 2014

Palestinians Prefer to Live in 'Racist' Israel.  BDS and similar organizations should take note, that even Arab members of Israel’s Knesset who insist on being called “Palestinians” and who regularly accuse the Jewish state of racism are now adamant they will not become citizens of a new Palestinian state.  parliamentarians like Ahmad Tibi (pictured) have responded with fury to Israel’s reported proposal to US Secretary of State John Kerry that the Jewish state surrender sovereignty over a portion of the lower Galilee with a heavy Arab population to the Palestinian Authority in a future peace deal.  They prefer living in what the anti Zionist crowd calls “Racist” Israel then under Palestinian control.  If that does not make BDS and others wakeup to reality, nothing will.

Israeli Arabs: We Do Not Want to Live in Palestinian State.  Renewed talk of land swaps between Israel and a future Palestinian state has left many Israeli Arabs worried about losing their status as citizens of Israel.  According to the Israeli daily Ma'ariv, Israel has proposed to the Americans transferring Israeli Arab communities to the Palestinian Authority as part of a land swap that would place Jewish settlements in the West Bank under Israeli sovereignty.  The proposal means that some 300,000 Israeli Arabs would be allowed to stay in their villages in the "triangle" area along the border with the West Bank. However, these citizens would find themselves living under the jurisdiction of a Palestinian state.  .  January 7 2014

But by treating Israel as the Jew among nations – singling it out for condemnation when others are far worse by any relevant standard – the advocates of BDS are simply expanding the notion of anti-Semitism beyond the individual to the nation state of the Jewish people. When Nazis condemned “Jewish physics,” “Jewish art” and “Jewish business practices,” they too claimed that they were focusing on Jewish institutions rather than Jewish individuals.  Click here to read full article

"It's the diplomatic equivalent of installing a burglar alarm system in your house but leaving the keys in the door."  It wasn't long after Neville Chamberlain's return from Munich in 1938 with a paper proclaiming "peace in our time" that German V-2 rockets began raining down on London.

So they rushed to do a deal with him over Iran’s nuclear programme, considered by the west to be a threat to the free world.  But Rouhani does not run Iran. The man who actually calls the shots – the only man who matters – is Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.

Netanyahu: I Won't be Silenced on Israel's Security.  PM Netanyahu warns that the deal being made with Iran is a threat to Israel's security, reiterates he will never be silent on such matters.  “For decades we have been struggling mightily against a regime that calls for our destruction and it pursues nuclear weapons in order to achieve our destruction,” said Netanyahu.   The West, he added, “put together a sanctions regime that has brought Iran to its knees, crippling sanctions. The purpose of those sanctions was to get Iran to dismantle – dismantle – its nuclear enrichment capabilities, which are used for atomic bombs and its heavy water plutonium reactor, which is used for atomic bombs.  “This is what the sanctions are for,” said Netanyahu. “They're not for preventing civilian nuclear energy or medical isotopes. I suppose Iran is building those ICBMs in order to launch medical isotopes to the Iranian patients orbiting the Earth. It is to prevent fissile material – that's the material that you put inside an atomic bomb – that's what those sanctions were about. To dismantle the centrifuge installations, underground military installations, centrifuge halls, and the plutonium reactor.  November 11 2013

Israel Accuses US Of Deceit On Nuclear Deal With Iran. Geneva Signing Drags Out As Iran Ups Its Price.  The interim nuclear accord negotiated directly between Washington and Tehran was already secretly in the bag before the two-day talks between Iran and the Six World powers took place in Geneva Thursday and Friday.   From those conversations, Netanyahu learned to his dismay that the version of the accord he had received from Kerry in the first of their three conversations differed substantially from the outline prepared for signing in Geneva – especially in the key clause of sanctions relief.  This discovery precipitated the most furious row Friday ever heard by any US or Israeli official between an Israeli leader and an American official.
Netanyahu angrily confronted Kerry with the charge that the Obama administration had deceived Israel every step of the way by letting Iran continue to clandestinely develop the prohibited military elements of its nuclear program, including the underground enrichment plan in Fordo; the heavy water plant for plutonium production in construction in Arak; uranium enrichment up to 20 percent purity; and now, the last straw, sanctions.  November 9 2013

According to a NATO source, Pakistan actually has made bombs for Saudi Arabia and they are ready to go, the report said.  Experts say the kingdom has long aspired to achieve nuclear capacity of its own, in order to counter Iran's atomic ambitions. Getting the bomb merely by tapping Pakistan for it could bring the unnerved kingdom, which is openly anxious about Washington's warming ties with Iran, into the nuclear age even before its Muslim neighbor, they now suggest.

Preview Of Official 2013 Survey On European Anti-Semitism.  The Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) of the European Union will publish the results of its keenly awaited survey, “Jewish people’s experiences and perceptions of hate crime, discrimination and anti-Semitism”. It is the largest survey of its type, covering countries in which 90% of European Jews live - Britain, France, Hungary, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Latvia.  7% of the 5,847 respondents experienced some form of anti-Semitic physical attack or threats in the last five years.  26% of respondents experienced anti-Semitic harassment at least once in the year before the survey. This rose to 34% over the past five years.  76% of victims of anti-Semitic harassment, 64% of victims of physical attack or threats, and 52% of victims of vandalism did not report the incident to the police, nor to any other organization.  22% of respondents sometimes avoid “Jewish events or sites” because of safety concerns.  These figures are overall European totals. The specific UK totals are likely to be generally less alarming, but it remains to be seen if they will be substantially different. The most striking figures released thus far concern Belgium, France and Hungary, where between 40% and 50% of respondents said that they had considered emigrating because they do not feel safe.  November 2 2013

On July 10, 1941, half the residents of Jedwabne, a Polish village 85 miles northeast of Warsaw, murdered the other half. The mob, led by the mayor, were Catholics; their 1,600 victims were Jewish, slaughtered over several nightmarish hours with bats, knives, rifles and other improvised weapons. Those who survived the massacre were then rounded up in a barn donated by a local farmer, which was then set ablaze. A plaque erected at the site blamed Nazis for the massacre, but, in fact, Nazis had only authorized it.  Polish film makers produced this movie despite threats, attacks by media and funding issues.

A considerable amount of Jews also say they have experienced anti-Semitism firsthand in the past year— 37% of Romanian Jews, 35% of Hungarian Jews, and 31% of Belgian Jews. In Britain and Sweden, the number is considerably lower, with 21% saying they have experienced anti-Semitism in the past year.  October 16 2013

Mainstream Baffled As French Turn To Far Right.   A poll published last week suggested the FN (National Front) could emerge as the best-supported party in the European elections with 24 percent of those asked declaring themselves ready to back the party led by Marine Le Pen, the daughter of FN founder Jean-Marie Le Pen.  "The change of leadership has given the party a slightly slicker image, but for most French people, it remains an extreme right party founded on racist ideas which is incapable of governing," Mayer told AFP.  "Marine Le Pen does have a better image than her father. Unlike him she is not associated with the legacy of the Second World War and anti-Semitism.  "Local factors played heavily in their favor in Brignoles. On a national level there is enormous disappointment after a year of the Socialists back in power, and the issues of crime and insecurity are beginning to weigh heavily in the national debate, which plays in the FN's favor.  October 14 2013

2013! Jew-Hating Comic Book San Francisco: Foreskin Man.  The backers of a ballot initiative in San Francisco aiming to ban circumcision in that city have consistently maintained that their efforts are not anti-Semitic.But the “Foreskin Man” comic book, which was written and edited in 2010 by the founder of a San Diego group supporting efforts to ban circumcision in San Francisco and Santa Monica, gives further credence to the accusation that so-called intactivists are in fact motivated by anti-Semitism.  “The imagery in ‘Foreskin Man’ is functionally Anti-Semitic,” Abby Michelson Porth, associate director of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), said. “The motives of the proponents of this ban are questionable given their direct connection with “Foreskin Man.”  The story told in the second issue of “Foreskin Man,” which is available on its website, centers on the story of Sarah and Jethro Glick and their newborn son. Sarah thought that she and her husband had agreed not to circumcise their son, but Jethro had other plans. He secretly invited the villain, “Monster Mohel,” to circumcise “little Glick.”   On the website foreskinman.com, Monster Mohel, a bearded man with a black hat on his head and a tallis around his neck, is described this way: “Nothing excites Monster Mohel more than cutting into the penile flesh of an eight-day-old infant boy.”  October 9 2013

Israel, Gulf Emirates And Saudi Arabia Are Coordinating Policies To Counter US Détente With Iran.   Associates of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday, Oct. 2, leaked word to the media that high-ranking Gulf emirate officials had recently visited Israel, signaling a further widening in the rift between Israel and President Barack Obama over his outreach to Tehran. These visits were in line with the ongoing exchanges Israel was holding with Saudi and Gulf representatives to align their actions for offsetting any potential American easing-up on Iran’s nuclear program.October 3 2013

New Research Poll Shows Major Shift in Identity of U.S. Jews.  The first major survey of American Jews in more than 10 years finds a significant rise in those who are not religious, marry outside the faith and are not raising their children Jewish — resulting in rapid assimilation that is sweeping through every branch of Judaism except the Orthodox.  The intermarriage rate, a bellwether statistic, has reached a high of 58 percent for all Jews, and 71 percent for non-Orthodox Jews — a huge change from before 1970 when only 17 percent of Jews married outside the faith. Two-thirds of Jews do not belong to a synagogue, one-fourth do not believe in God and one-third had a Christmas tree in their home last year.  “It’s a very grim portrait of the health of the American Jewish population in terms of their Jewish identification,” said Jack Wertheimer, a professor of American Jewish history at the Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York.  Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Life Project.  October 1 2013

American Anti-Semitism Amplified By Internet.  A Sobering Appraisal of Current Anti Semitism in the US.  A 2005 survey by the ADL, for example, found that some 14 percent of Americans hold “strong” anti-Semitic views – about 35 million people. Breaking down the numbers in more detail revealed that more than one third of foreign-born Hispanics and American blacks hold what the ADL referred to as “hardcore” anti-Semitic views.  Among whites, less than 10 percent harbored such attitudes, according to the survey.   Aside from the Internet, Himel said there is a lot of anti-Semitism among some “left-leaning so-called anti-Zionist groups” – especially on college campuses in addition to the right wing and groups like Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, the collective impact of which should be ignored or discounted.  'The Nazis aren't coming back tomorrow, but I do think that there is always that potential'.    August 27 2013

Almost Half of Belgian, French, Hungarian Jews Mull Emigration Due to Level of Anti Semitism.  Anti-Semitic incidents in Europe increased by more than 30 percent in 2012. In France, anti-Semitic incidents increased by 58 percent in 2012, with a staggering 96 violent attacks.  In countries like France and Sweden, anti-Semitism is fueled by Muslim elements and rationalized as a response to Israeli policy against the Palestinians; in Greece and Hungary it draws on calls for ethnic purity and nationalism.  June 26 2013

In 2013, less than 70 years after the end of the Hitler regime in Europe that killed half of all of the Jews in the world, roughly half of the Jews in the world are threatened with annihilation again—and the U.S. administration is not only going along with it, but cheering on the possibility.  November 21 2013

Poison Ivy League There is no greater lockstep in political thinking than on the campuses of American universities, particularly elite schools in the north-east. A critical component of the worldview of the academic Left now is hatred of Israel and support for the Palestinian cause. The universities can try to make student life “comfortable” for Jewish students, who by and large pay the freight (full tuition). But in the classroom, at conferences, in student activity groups and at simulated Israeli checkpoints established in the campus plazas, the hostility to Israel is alive, aggressive and increasingly unrestrained.  Israel Hayom.  February 20 2012

2012 Study: Anti Semitic, Anti Israel and Boycott Divestment of Israel on US College Campuses.  “A shocking percentage of Jewish students report experiencing anti-Semitism on campus and administrators have shown far less sensitivity to these incidents than persecution of other minorities or women on campus.”     “The most prevalent anti-Israel groups today are the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).  The MSA is affiliated with Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and institutionally, has historically been hostile toward Israel and Jews.”  “ The most serious problem on campus is not from student activities, but from faculty.”    “Though left-wing politics on campus today is very different than what it was in the 1960s, campuses remain the most visible home of ideologues of the radical left in America. And to the extent these leftists are anti-Israel, universities offer them their highest profile platform.”         The American Israeli Cooperative Enterprise.  February 17 2013
Uncertain Realities: The Geopolitical Landscape Affecting Jews and Israel
. The shockwaves that have rocked the Arab world over the past two years- compounded by the Iranian threat and turbulence in the international system – pose significant risks and challenges for Israel and the Jewish people. The uncertainty that traditionally characterizes the Middle East is exacerbated by the current anxiety and crisis atmosphere permeating the entire geopolitical arena. The number, diversity, and dynamic complexity of "moving parts" within the international system make orchestrating a sound foreign policy difficult.   The dramatic upheavals in the Arab world that have, so far, led to the overthrow of rulers in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen, also threaten the stability of other regimes. The dust has not yet settled and any attempt to draw fast conclusions about the “new face” of the region would be presumptuous. Even the term "Arab Spring" used internationally to label the tumultuous and still un-folding events is more wishful thinking than an accurate portrayal of their possible consequences. In such a volatile reality, being indecisive is as much a decision as any other and, therefore, decision makers in Israel and the Diaspora are not exempted from making difficult choices.       Jewish Policy Institute.

Muslim Hate Groups on Campus.  Introduction: Muslim Hate Groups On Campus by Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is a new Freedom Center pamphlet that exposes the radical origins and violent objectives of the main Muslim student organizations on our nation’s campuses. These organizations, principally the Muslim Students Association and Students for Justice in Palestine, are sponsors of the hate-fests known as “Israeli Apartheid Weeks” or “Palestine Awareness Weeks.” As Greenfield shows, they are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Several campus presidents of the Muslim Students Association have gone on to take up leadership positions in Al Qaeda.  (63 pages and an important read for those concerend about Anti Zionism and Anti Semitism's rapid growth on US College Campuses.)  Published 2011   Click here   for PDF document

This is not to say that extinction is its fate. Only that it can be.  It is the only small country—the only period, period—whose neighbors publicly declare its very existence an affront to law, morality, and religion and make its extinction an explicit, paramount national goal.  September 21 2012

How the US State Department Almost Blocked the Creation of Israel   In 1948 the US State Department went so far as to threaten to incite a wave of anti-Semitism in the United States if Zionist leaders did not cancel the planned proclamation of the state of Israel.  The State Department, however, persuaded Truman to impose a complete arms embargo on the Middle East. That move primarily affected the Jews, since the Arab states had little difficulty obtaining weapons from Great Britain and other countries.  Daily Caller.  May 15 2012

How Secure Are Jews In America?  American Jews, by and large, smugly and erroneously have themselves convinced that somehow they are different.

Unfortunately history has shown that wherever Jews have enjoyed freedom and a high level of success, there are forces working to undermine that favorable environment.   Americans for a Safe Israel.  Posted March 26 2012

Hitler's Furies: German Women In The Nazi Killing Fields  Wendy Lower’s stunning account of the role of German women on the World War II Nazi eastern front powerfully revises history, proving that we have ignored the reality of women’s participation in the Holocaust, including as brutal killers. The long-held picture of German women holding down the home front during the war, as loyal wives and cheerleaders for the Führer, pales in comparison to Lower’s incisive case for the massive complicity, and worse, of the 500,000 young German women she places, for the first time, directly in the killing fields of the expanding Reich.   Hitler’s Furies builds a fascinating and convincing picture of a morally “lost generation” of young women, born into a defeated, tumultuous post–World War I Germany, and then swept up in the nationalistic fervor of the Nazi movement—a twisted political awakening that turned to genocide. These young women—nurses, teachers, secretaries, wives, and mistresses—saw the emerging Nazi empire as a kind of “wild east” of career and matrimonial opportunity, and yet could not have imagined what they would witness and do there. Lower, drawing on twenty years of archival and field work on the Holocaust, access to post-Soviet documents, and interviews with German witnesses, presents overwhelming evidence that these women were more than “desk murderers” or comforters of murderous German men: that they went on “shopping sprees” for Jewish-owned goods and also brutalized Jews in the ghettos of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus; that they were present at killing-field picnics, not only providing refreshment but also taking their turn at the mass shooting. And Lower uncovers the stories, perhaps most horrific, of SS wives with children of their own, whose female brutality is as chilling as any in history. The Nazi women who were every bit as evil as the men: From the mother who shot Jewish children in cold blood to the nurses who gave lethal injections in death camps.  Chilling new book has unearthered thousands of complicit German women.  At least half a million witnessed and contributed to Hitler's terror  Have been dubbed the ‘primary witnesses of the Holocaust’.  Secretaries typed the orders to kill and filed the details of massacres.  Only a small number of women were called to account for their crimes.

The Devil That Never Dies: The Rise and Threat of Global Antisemitism
(published September 2013).  A groundbreaking--and terrifying--examination of the widespread resurgence of antisemitism in the 21st century, by the prize-winning and #1 internationally bestselling author of Hitler's Willing Executioners.   A bare seven decades after THE WORLD `learned' that six million Jews were systematically murdered by Nazi Germany with impressive efficiency in a relatively short amount of time, Jew-hatred is back in full force - this time on a global scale. In response, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, the author of HITLER'S WILLING EXECUTIONER has published "THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES - The Rise and Threat of Global Antisemitism". It is a much needed book, including in the US where antisemitism has become a taboo in the public sphere and where one may be lulled into the belief that this age-old scourge has lost its deadly force.  It is troubling to read that just like in Germany in the late nineteen hundreds, antisemitism has once again taken a new foothold in academia in the US and even more pronounced in European countries which either collaborated or stood by while the Nazi regime murdered two thirds of its Jews. John Mersheimer and Stephen Walt for instance distribute their specious antisemitism in the guise of respectability and seriousness and use the bogeyman "Israel Lobby" as an example of a nefarious group which takes unfair advantage of non-Jews. The old canards are recycled in a pattern of mind-numbing repetitiveness and are only surprising in their lack of imagination of NOTHING NEW.   In his extensive study, Goldhagen analyzes the singular nature of this particular prejudice and how it reinvents itself year in and year out, decade after decade, century after century to fit new circumstances while staying loyal to its core characteristic: Jews, or THE Jews, are used as the dung heap of any and all human shortcomings AND prejudices, especially in societies which prefer finger pointing to self-criticism. Goldhagen is equally adept at demonstrating that antisemitism withstands better knowledge, logic, facts to the contrary and the passion to willful ignorance of its adherents.  In an interview on Vox Tablet I heard Goldhagen refer to one of the common prejudices against Jews, i.e. " JEWS HAVE TOO MUCH POWER". "What does this even mean?" he then asked rhetorically. Indeed. What does this mean? Which brings me back to the inherent nature of Jew-hatred: It's a dogmatic and quite frankly insane belief system which does not withstand the slightest effort of critical thinking. All told, it reveals more about the hater than about Jews.  Goldhagen lays bare the primordial (atavistic?) attraction of wide a swath of people - most of whom have never met a Jew and will never meet a Jew - to this specific eliminationist prejudice and how and where it thrives the best. While the internet is not to blame for the global reincarnation of this lethal hatred, Goldhagen demonstrates that the internet has been a potent vehicle for its distribution worldwide.  Goldhagen's sources are immense and global, both from classic literature, history books and other printed material. While one reviewer took Goldhagen to task for using mostly sources on the internet, I would like to ask that reviewer "How else does one access the global media?"

Demonizing Israel and the Jews (published May 2013).
   Today, well over 100 million Europeans embrace a satanic view of the State of Israel. They believe that Israel is exterminating the Palestinians, despite their major population growth in recent decades. This current widespread demonic view of Israel is a new mutation of the diabolical beliefs about Jews which many held in the Middle Ages, and those promoted more recently by the Nazis and their allies. This demonization has been exacerbated by the consequences of the massive and non-selective immigration into Western Europe from Muslim countries, where incitement against Jews and Israel is often fanatic and ongoing. This collection of 57 interviews with scholars, politicians, and the like, depicts how extensive and intense the hate-mongering is. In his opening essay, Gerstenfeld puts the facts and views presented in the book into context. "Gerstenfeld helps us all understand the world's oldest hatred." -Rabbi Marvin Hier Founder and Dean Simon Wiesenthal Center "An authoritative, up-to-date guide to the cultural-ideological war being waged against the democratic Jewish state." -Prof. Frederick Krantz Director, Canadian Institute Jewish Research "This superb collection of incisive interviews on the demonization of Israel and the Jews should be located on the bookshelves of every committed Jewish activist." -Isi Leibler Former Chairman Governing Board World Jewish Congress "Manfred Gerstenfeld's collection of interviews on anti-Semitism and its proxy, delegitimization of Israel, is brilliantly selected and encyclopedic in scope. His own essay tying the interviews together makes this required reading for those who want to understand where anti-Semitism is today." -Richard B. Stone Chairman Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.   Published May 2013

Holocaust Literature: A History and Guide (Tauber Institute Series for the Study of European Jewry) [Paperback]
Here, for the first time, is a historical survey of Holocaust literature in all genres, countries, and major languages. Beginning in wartime, it proceeds from the literature of mobilization and mourning in the Free World to the vast literature produced in Nazi-occupied ghettos, bunkers and places of hiding, transit and concentration camps. No less remarkable is the new memorial literature that begins to take shape within weeks and months of the liberation. Moving from Europe to Israel, the United States, and beyond, the authors situate the writings by real and proxy witnesses within three distinct postwar periods: "communal memory," still internal and internecine; "provisional memory" in the 1960s and 1970s, when a self-conscious Holocaust genre is born; and "authorized memory," in which we live today.

The Liberator: One World War II Soldier's 500-Day Odyssey from the Beaches of Sicily to the Gates of Dachau.  The true story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory of the Second World War: the battlefield odyssey of a maverick U.S. Army officer and his infantry unit as they fought for over five hundred days to liberate Europe.   In the dying days of the Third Reich, Sparks and his men crossed the last great barrier in the West, the Rhine, only to experience some of the most intense street fighting and close combat suffered by Americans in WWII. When they finally arrived at the gates of Dachau, Hitler’s first and most notorious concentration camp, the Thunderbirds confronted scenes that robbed the mind of reason. With victory within grasp, Sparks confronted the ultimate test of his humanity: after all he had faced, could he resist the urge to wreak vengeance on the men who had caused untold suffering and misery?

Herbert Hoover and the Jews: The Origins of the “Jewish Vote” and Bipartisan Support for Israel (published 2012).  Although Herbert Hoover is not remembered as having had much interaction with Jews or interest in issue of Jewish concern, he in fact played a significant role in aiding Jewish communities devastated by World War One and pogroms; supported the cause of a Jewish state despite pressure from his own State Department; actively promoted the rescue of Jews from the Holocaust; and played a key part in the emergence of the "Jewish vote" in American politics and bipartisan support for Israel.
Millions of Jews to Rescue: A Bergson Group Leader’s Account of the Campaign to Save Jews from the Holocaust.  (published 2012).  The Roosevelt administration tried to deport them. The FBI spied on them. The British wanted to arrest them. But none of that could stop the Bergson Group from forging ahead with its campaign for rescue of Jews from the Holocaust in 1943-1944. Their rallies, lobbying in Washington, and hundreds of newspaper advertisements shook the American public and forced the Allies to face the Nazi genocide. In these pages, the late Samuel Merlin, one of the group's leaders, tells the remarkable story of a handful of activists --Jews and Christians-- who helped change history.

Israel and the Struggle over the International Laws of War  In recent years, the term lawfare has come to describe the use of international law as a political weapon. The Goldstone Report, which was published by the United Nations in September 2009, and the Gaza flotilla controversy, which erupted at the end of May 2010, are examples of it. In both cases, UN officials, distinguished lawyers, and diplomats put forward weak or indefensible legal arguments to condemn actions taken by Israel in self-defense. In this book, Peter Berkowitz exposes these abuses of the international laws of war by bringing into focus the flawed assumptions on which they rest and refuting the defective claims they promulgate.  Berkowitz shows that the Goldstone Report engaged in disreputable fact-finding and misapplied the relevant legal tests, even as its mission lacked proper foundations in international law. And he demonstrates that the arguments presented in the Gaza flotilla controversy to condemn Israel's blockade of Gaza as unlawful prove on inspection to be unsound and insubstantial. In both cases, he explains, the result has been to reward terrorists who, in gross violation of the international laws of war, deliberately efface the distinction between civilian and military objects and to punish liberal democracies—in particular Israel and the United States—that expose their soldiers and civilian populations to heightened risk in the quest to wage war lawfully. 

On the Eve: The Jews of Europe Before the Second World War   Published 2012    On the Eve is the portrait of a world on the eve of its destruction. Bernard Wasserstein’s original and provocative book presents a new and disturbing interpretation of the collapse of European Jewish civilization even before the Nazi onslaught.  Wasserstein shows how the harsh political and social realities of the age devastated the private lives of individuals and families. He demonstrates that, by 1939, the Jews faced an existential crisis that was as much the result of internal decay as of external attack.  From Vilna (the “Jerusalem of Lithuania”) to Salonica with its Judeo-EspaÑol-speaking stevedores and singers, and from the Soviet Jewish “homeland” of Birobidzhan to Amsterdam (the “Jerusalem of the west”), the book explores the mindsets of wealthy bankers and far-left revolutionaries, of ultra-orthodox yeshiva bokhers and militant atheists, of cultural revivalists and radical assimilationists.  Describing the predicament of the Jews in a continent suffused with anti-Semitism, Wasserstein’s focus is squarely on the Jews themselves rather than their persecutors. His aim, he writes, is to “breathe life into dry bones.” Based on vast research, written with compassion and empathy, and enlivened by dry wit, On the Eve paints a vivid and shocking picture of Europe’s Jews in their final hour.
IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance Between Nazi Germany and America's Most Powerful Corporation .  Published February 2012  Newly-released documents expose more explicitly the details of IBM’s pivotal role in the Holocaust—all six phases: identification, expulsion from society, confiscation, ghettoization, deportation, and even extermination. Moreover, the documents portray with crystal clarity the personal involvement and micro-management of IBM president Thomas J. Watson in the company’s co-planning and co-organizing of Hitler’s campaign to destroy the Jews.  IBM and the Holocaust is the award-winning, New York Times bestselling shocker--a million copies in print--detailing IBM's conscious co-planning and co-organizing of the Holocaust for the Nazis, all micromanaged by its president Thomas J Watson from New York and Paris. This Expanded Edition offers 37 pages of previous unpublished documents, pictures, internal company correspondence, and other archival materials to produce an even more explosive volume. Originally published to extraordinary praise in 2001, this provocative, award-winning international bestseller has stood the test of time as it chronicles the story of IBM's strategic alliance with Nazi Germany. IBM and the Holocaust provides nothing less than a chilling investigation into corporate complicity. Edwin Black's monumental research exposes how IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enabling technologies for the Nazis, step-by-step, from the identification and cataloging programs of the 1930s to the selections of the 1940s.
A Convenient Hatred: The History of Anti-Semitism Published December 2011.   A Convenient Hatred, with foreword by Sir Harold Evans, chronicles the evolution of anti-Semitism from the time of Alexander through the Holocaust and modern Israel.   This powerful treatise explores with exquisite detail the pernicious foundations of bigotry against Jews, from ancient times through the dark ages, the enlightenment and into contemporary examples. A Convenient Hatred could just as easily been called A Convenient History, as it illustrates the magnitude of anti-Jewish vitriol, loathing and detestation over the ages, leading to a unique and mendacious version of history that blames Jews for impossibly disparate and disconnected events and catastrophes. 

Israel: An Introduction.

Written by a leading historian of the Middle East, Israel is organized around six major themes: land and people, history, society, politics, economics, and culture. The only available volume to offer such a complete account, this book is written for general readers and students who may have little background knowledge of this nation or its rich culture.  Based on research by scholars with extensive firsthand knowledge of Israel, this book offers accessible, clearly explained material, enhanced with a generous selection of images, maps, charts, tables, graphs, and sidebars. This book provides readers with a solid foundation of knowledge about Israel and provides useful reference lists by topic for those inspired to read further.

The People of the Book: Philosemitism in England, From Cromwell to Churchill, Gertrude Himmelfarb, published November 2011. The history of Judaism has for too long been dominated by the theme of anti semitism, reducing Judaism to the recurrent saga of persecution and the struggle for survival. The history of philosemitism provides a corrective to that abysmal view, a reminder of the venerable religion and people that have been an inspiration for non-Jews as well as Jews. There is a poetic justice – or historic justice – in the fact that England, the first country to expel the Jews in medieval times, has produced the richest literature of philosemitism in modern times.   A recent history of antisemitism in England regretfully observes that English philosemitism is "a past glory." This book may recall England – and not only England – to that past glory and inspire other countries to emulate it. It may also reaffirm Jews in their own faith and aspirations.   Gertrude Himmelfarb, professor emeritus at the Graduate School of the City University, has written extensively on intellectual and cultural history with a focus on Victorian England. Her most recent books are The Jewish Odyssey of George Eliot, The Moral Imagination: From Edmund Burke to Lionel Trilling, and The Roads to Modernity: The British, French, and American Enlightenments. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2004 she received the National Humanities Medal awarded by the President.   December 13 2011; click on link below to see on Amazon

The New Anti-Semitism: The Current Crisis and What We Must Do About It. Phyllis Chesler. This passionate, highly personal jeremiad by noted feminist Chesler (Women and Madness) addresses what she sees as a re-emergence of virulent anti-Jewish hatred cloaked in "political correctness," closely linked to anti-American attitudes, sustained by many liberal feminists, intellectuals and Jewish leftists, acted upon by Islamic terrorists and jihadists, and fueled by a "demonization of Jews" in the media.  Click on the link below to go to Amazon listing for book
