Anti-SemitismKings, pharaohs, generals, fuehrers, Moslem extremists, and more have tried to exterminate the Jews for millennia. The Bible predicts the persecution of both Jews and Christians in many Scriptural references, with an intensification in the “end-times.” The Arab world fans the flames of anti-Semitism, as well as much of Europe and even Canada.

It has become more obvious in America with the push for a Palestinian state. Many, though certainly not all, who are pushing in America for a Palestinian state, and particularly on U.S. campuses, have anti-Semitic sentiment.

Jews Being Blamed For Financial Crisis

Jews being blamed for US financial crisis

Popular anti-Semitic sentiment frighteningly reminiscent of the lead-up to Nazi rule in Germany is growing in the United States in response to the current economic crisis.

With a deflated Wall Street begging for a lifeline from Washington, small businesses across the country unable to secure needed loans and average Americans being turned away by mortgage banks, many people are looking for a scapegoat.

Blaming the Jews (Again)

Just as the Obama campaign seemed to be making progress in tamping down rumors about his alleged Muslim background and that he might be a "Manchurian candidate" for the Arab-Islamic world, up steps the Rev. Jesse Jackson to upset the falafel cart.

Jackson, who doesn't speak for the Obama campaign and has no role in it, was in Evian, France, the home of the preferred water of Volvo-driving liberals, where he spoke with columnist and author Amir Taheri about what he thinks the foreign policy in an Obama administration would look like. Jackson said things would start to improve in an Obama administration because "decades of putting Israel first" would come to an end.

Using the Holocaust to Attack the Jews

Dozens of cities held ceremonies last week to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The good news is that the dead were remembered. The bad news is that even as the Holocaust is becoming a fixture in the world's memory, it is also being increasingly used as a weapon against the Jews and the Jewish state.

For some, ironically, the acknowledgment of the Holocaust's reality has become a screen behind which anti-Semitism has gathered new force. The hard-core Jew-haters spent decades denying that the best-documented genocide in world history ever took place. That won them such derision that even many anti-Semites have begun to admit the reality of the Holocaust -- and now are hoping that simply by doing so, they can immunize themselves from the charge that they're anti-Semites in the first place. How can you be an anti-Semite, they figure, if you recognize the Holocaust?

Nearly one-third of all Europeans say the Jews are to blame for the current global economic downturn, according to a new poll conducted by the Anti-Defamation League in seven European countries earlier this year.

When asked who was to blame for the financial crisis in Europe and the US, 31 percent of respondents across the continent pointed the finger at high-ranking Jews in the financial industry, reported Ha'aretz.

Obama, despite his heavy support from American Jews, has been no friend to Israel.

By Melanie Phillips

In a letter to the Jerusalem Post, David Harris, director of the American Jewish Committee [AJC], has defended his organization's decision to participate in the preparatory meeting for Durban II - the follow-up to the 2001 U.N. World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, which took place in Durban, South Africa. Two weeks ago, AJC senior official Felice Gaer was part of the delegation America sent to try to improve the draft of the declaration, the final version of which will ultimately be approved at Durban II itself. The U.S. vowed that if its attempts to improve the draft failed, it would not participate in the final conference.

The West is ignoring Iranian genocidal anti-Semitism due to a psychological "trauma model," according to an Israeli professor.

Dr. Hadar Lubin, co-director of the post-traumatic stress center in New Haven, Connecticut, and an assistant clinical professor in the department of psychiatry at Yale University, delivered a talk on "Trauma in Disguise: Antisemitism" at a conference last week.

There is an "identification with the aggressor out of fear" that the perpetrator will cause further harm, Lubin told The Jerusalem Post. This helps to explain why the Iranian "threat to annihilate Israel, which is very straightforward, very alarming, is ignored by the West," she said.

From its inception, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum has brought haters to its doors, with several dozen people protesting the 1993 dedication carrying signs such as, "Stop the big lie - the gas chamber hoax!"

The prime suspect in Wednesday's deadly shooting at the museum has a racist, anti-Semitic Web site, but sentiments akin to those he touts were on display on that rainy April day 16 years ago.

"America - Jews are your enemies, cocroaches and parasites," said one sign, misspelling and all. "Wake up America."

Obama and 'Them Jews' - Gary Bauer - June 12

Do you remember Jeremiah Wright, the long-time pastor, mentor and spiritual guide to Barack Obama?  Obama sat in Wright's pews for more than a decade and was baptized into his church, as were both of his daughters.  All the while Wright preached a hateful mixture of black liberation theology and America-bashing, periodically spiced up with Louis Farrakhan-style anti-Semitism.

Once Wright's rants became public and threatened to derail Obama's presidential campaign, the candidate distanced himself from his pastor.  This is "not the man I knew for 20 years," candidate Obama explained to America during a high-profile press conference.

The media coverage of the Bernard Madoff scandal made extensive reference to Madoff's ethnic and religious background and his prominent role in the Jewish community. Because the scandal broke at a time of great public outcry against financial institutions, some, including Brad Greenberg in The Christian Science Monitor and Mark Seal in Vanity Fair, have reported on its potential to generate a wave of anti-Semitism.

Why the Jews?

It so happened that this week, on the day I wrote about Holocaust denial in the Middle East, a homegrown denier took a rifle into the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum -- an institution where I sit on the governing board. The museum counts about 1.7 million visitors each year who learn about the history of murderous racism -- and now one who decided to add to that history.

That day, out of curiosity, I did something I rarely do. I read the comments on my column on a number of Web sites that publish it. In addition to the normal political vituperation, the level of anti-Jewish feeling was appalling. The European genocide, some contended, was exaggerated by Jews for political purposes. Jews were behind the Bolshevik Revolution, the rise of Hitler and the outbreak of World War II. They control the newspapers, radio, television and book publishing. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is right to expose the Holocaust myth, they wrote, and Israel is perpetrating the real holocaust against the Palestinians.
