Everyone knows that anti-Zionism has nothing to do with anti-Semitism.
These are isolated incidents. It’s only a small minority. It’s not like this happened on the streets of major Western capitals every Western city. It’s not like this activity peaks every time Israel is at war happens literally all the time. It’s not like all of this happened in the last week alone in one day. It’s not like one per cent of all French Jews are moving to Israel this year, preferring to take their chances with the rockets than the mobs on the streets.
Give me a break. We may be sneaky, evil, vengeful, conniving, child-killing, baby-eating genocidal Hitler wannabes – but we’re not stupid.
And so the West does Hamas’s dirty work for it. Hamas cannot defeat Israel militarily. Its strategy is not just to kill Israelis and demoralise the population, but also to de-legitimise Israel so that the West, too, will work for its destruction. Hamas’s rockets have failed in the first two objectives — but the third is a runaway success.

In its hundreds of tunnels, Hamas has built an underground infrastructure of industrialised terror the length of Gaza. As a Fatah spokesman blurted out, it has situated its arsenal among civilians, underneath schools and hospitals and mosques, for the infernal purpose of using its population as human shields and human sacrifices.
It has urged Gazans to make themselves the target of Israeli air strikes. It has ordered them to ignore the Israeli warnings to evacuate, which are delivered by leaflet, phone, text and warning shots.
Doesn’t the Israel-atrocity brigade ever pause to wonder why Hamas has provided no air-raid shelters for its people, while Israel has constructed a national shelter system? Gazan civilians are dying in order to maximise their numbers killed in the war, so that Hamas can incite against Israel in both the Muslim world and the West.

This is rabid anti semitism!
Antisemitism at RALLY for Gaza in Sydney.
The organisers were repeatedly saying they are not against Jews but Israel, yet the number of antisemitic posters showed that as a lie. According to a couple of people on Facebook there were some ISIS flags there too, but neither of us saw one.
I was going to do a whole spiel about what all the speakers said, but I will just do bits as they come to mind.
The lies out there are not funny and our adversaries are doing a good job of getting misinformation out and we really need to do something to reverse that.
The woman who ‘conducted the whole thing , amid her screaming the usual well known slogans and riling everyone up to a state of frightening hysteria, came out with a statement about McDonald’s which puzzled me and still does.
She said for people not to buy McDonalds’ because they support Israel. Her exact words were ….
I have no idea where that comes from and find it rather funny and so will you if you watch this video I highlighted in “Arabs Down Under” where you can order McDonald’s from El Arish in Egypt, delivered ‘via tunnel’.
Another was that “Gaza is the most densely populated place on earth” whilst I know full well it stands at 22.
Antisemitic Pro-Hamas Rally In Berlin
On the 17th July 2014, a large group of anti-Semitic and Pro-Hamas Germans filled the streets by chanting Antisemitic slogans in Berlin.
The protesters shouted “Jews, Jews, cowardly pigs, come out and fight!”, while holding up pictures of the ultimate Jew hater and terrorist, Yasser Arafat.
Slogans such as these are illegal in Germany.
If you are Pro-Hamas, you are Pro-Jew Hatred…It’s a proven fact.
"Erdogan" is Turkish for "unresolved childhood issues."
On July 13, Bernard Abouaf, a French Jewish journalist, posted on his Facebook wall: “I just passed through one of the truest moments in my life.” A bit earlier, he had been an eyewitness to a pogrom attempt.
About one hundred Muslim thugs had gathered in front of the Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue in Central Paris, a few blocks away from Place de la Bastille (Bastille Circle), and threatened to storm it. Two to three hundred worshipers, who had gathered for a pro-Israel religious service, were locked inside. There were five police officers to protect them–and two dozen Jewish youths trained in martial arts who were members of the Jewish community sponsored Security Organization or of the more militant Jewish Defense League.
For Abouaf, whose family is of Tunisian Jewish descent, the whole scene looked like a reenactment of the storming and torching of the Great Synagogue in Tunis during the Six-Day War in 1967: a traumatic event that accelerated the flight of Tunisian Jews to France or to Israel.
“What I have seen today,” he remarked, “is Arab hatred against Jews. Pure hatred. Right in the middle of Paris. Don’t try to ‘explain’ or ‘understand’, it was hatred, period.”
Irving Kristol famously said that a neoconservative was a liberal mugged by reality. Something similar was befalling Abouaf. This was the “truth” he was so eager to share.
The Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue was not stormed. Its bunker-like shape (it was built in 1962) and its strong, straight, iron gates were probably helpful. Even more effective were the young Jewish defenders, who did not shy away from confronting the Muslim rioters. Older Jewish men and women, some in their late forties or early fifties, fought back as well. “The whole thing looked like street guerilla,” one witness said. At least two of the synagogue’s defenders–including a young Chabad chassid–were severely wounded and rushed to a nearby hospital.
The prime minister (and former interior minister) of France Manuel Valls called Serge Benhaim, the synagogue chairman, on his cell phone to assure him that more police forces, including CRS (anti-riot units) would soon be dispatched. It took some time before his orders were implemented; once deployed, even the heavily equipped CRS had to engage into hard fighting and some of them were wounded. Eventually, the worshipers were not just evacuated from the synagogue but escorted away to safer streets or a Metro station: “I will not forget the fear in their eyes as they went out,” wrote Abouaf. This time, it was not just the Tunis pogrom he had in mind, but “scenes of the Holocaust itself.”
Similar incidents occurred all over Greater Paris and France at about the same time.
The morning before–that is to say, on the Sabbath–a Molotov cocktail was thrown into a synagogue at Aulnay-sous-Bois, a Parisian suburb. At Asnieres, another suburb, the police said a Muslim mob of 300 gathered in front of the synagogue and shouted anti-Israel slogans for about half an hour. Smaller group of Muslim mobsters attempted to get into the Belleville synagogue, in northeastern Paris, and into the Tournelles synagogue, in the Marais district.
No less horrid were the many pro-Palestinian rallies, in Paris, Marseilles, Lille, Bordeaux, and other cities, complete with Palestinian and ISIS flags and proudly displayed fake Fajr rockets.
The demonstrators–almost all of them of North African or Subsaharan African origin–shouted explicitly anti-Semitic slogans, notably “Itbah al-Yahud!” (Slaughter the Jews, in Arabic.)
Any time they would spot Jewish-owned shops or professional offices they would cover the doors or windows with stickers urging, “to boycott the racist State of Israel.”
On Sunday, several thousands pro-Palestinian and pro-jihadist demonstrators marched for miles across the city, from the heavily Muslim Barbes neighborhood to places with large Jewish populations and many synagogues like the Bastille area. The mobsters that attacked the Don Isaac Abravanel synagogue were some of them.
Swastikas painted in front a Jewish fraternity at the University of Oregon
Swastikas were painted on mailboxes in front of a Jewish fraternity at the University of Oregon in Eugene.
The swastikas were painted on mailboxes in front of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house, according to a report filed with the Eugene Police on Monday night, the Daily Emerald student newspaper reported.
The fraternity also informed the Dean of Students of the attack.
The police do not have any leads in the case, a police spokeswoman told the Register-Guard newspaper.
Anti-Semitic or other discriminatory graffiti “hasn’t happened a lot” in Eugene in recent years, the spokeswoman told the newspaper.
Swastikas were painted on the back door of the fraternity house several years ago, a student told local television station KMTR.
The city of Eugene’s human rights commission “strongly condemns these types of hateful actions,” commission member Phil Carrasco said in a statement, the Register Guard reported. “This symbol comes from a place of hate and is used to promote hate,” he said.
Andy Gitelson, executive director of Oregon Hillel, said that there is a heightened sensitivity to the graffiti due to Israel’s current military operation in Gaza.
“They said some nasty things, like calling us Jesus killers, asking how many babies we had each murdered, telling us we would burn,” said Samantha Mandeles, a former student activist who now trains students in Israel advocacy for CAMERA.
“There was one woman — the one who assaulted Chloe [Valdary] — who was screeching to me that I should ‘rape my ass with the flag,’ but I ignored her, even as she slapped the end of my flag as it waved it the wind,” Mandeles told the Times of Israel on Saturday.
Perched out of windows high above the protest, Israeli consulate staffers – unable to participate in the event by law – took video of the protest’s jolting finale.
“We would like to thank the pro-Israel students in Boston, who stood there with an Israeli and American flag, supporting Israel’s right to self-defense,” said consul-general Yehuda Yaakov in a statement.
“We appreciate the ongoing support, courage and dedication throughout the year to the state of Israel,” he added.
Following their protest outside the Israeli consulate, demonstrators held another anti-Israel gathering on the Boston Common. Protestors then picketed outside three companies they called “complicit in the genocide” by supporting Israel, including Macy’s and TIAA-CREF, the retirement fund.
A third anti-Israel gathering was held that evening, in front of Copley Square’s Boston Public Library. All three of Friday’s downtown anti-Israel rallies, as well as the hour of picketing companies, included participation from faith and labor groups, some of which distributed fliers mixing local agendas with anti-Israel rhetoric.
“What I saw today was actually less ugly than [anti-Israel protests] we see in California,” said Bea Lieberman, a veteran Israel supporter in town to help her daughter move.
“There were far fewer jihadi young men here covering their faces and holding flags of Nasrallah, chanting ‘slaughter the Jews,’” said Lieberman. “Where I’m from, there would be bars and police physically separating the protesters, because there are jihadi men who literally want to kill you.”
