EU definition of anti-Semitism: singling out Jews and Israel
Those who hate and wish to destroy the Jewish people want to destroy the rest of the free world today - it was true in WW2, it is true today..

Islamic Jew hatersfor terror, re-opening Auschwitz and nuclear genocide, NYC, May 2009 (IslamicAwakening.com, accessed 6/3/2009)

The New Anti-Semitism - Israel is portrayed as the abstract evil, irrespective of what policies the Israeli government does or does not carry out—while the Arab Palestinians stand for the abstract good, regardless of what their representatives permit or accomplish. Few of Israel's critics have a genuine interest in the Palestinians. Rather, they devote outsized attention to this otherwise small and obscure population because it represents a convenient and potent tool with which to malign Israel. Organizations intent on criticizing Israel's every move by default become masters of tiny Palestinian grievances. They document in loving detail residential and transportation patterns in the West Bank, water and electricity grids in Gaza, and impediments to reaching holy places in Jerusalem but are not concerned with the corrupt Palestinian dictators withholding peace, freedom and prosperity from their fellow subjects.

There have been three stages of anti-Semitism. The first was religious anti-Semitism, initially Christian and now overshadowed by religious Muslim anti-Semitism. The second stage was nationalist-ethnic-racist anti-Semitism. And the third - the latest one - is anti-Israelism, against the collective Jew, the State of Israel. Each of these has three characteristic phases. The first is demonization; the second is exclusion; and the third is expulsion or destruction. Elements of all three phases are directed today against the collective Jew. Demonization - whereby Israelis are called the Nazis of today, citizens of an apartheid or colonialist state.

The annihilation of Israel is a necessary prologue to the redemption of all of humanity through Islam. The Arab world and Iran are today the central clearinghouses for genocidal anti-Semitism, replete with Holocaust denial and Nazi-propaganda characterizing Jews as subhuman filth who the Muslim world must unite to snuff out. Based on Koranic Verses, Interpretations, and Traditions, Muslim Clerics State: The Jews Are the Descendants of Apes, Pigs, And Other Animals. Those who turn a blind eye to Islamist ideology—its cult of death, its anti-Semitism, its hatred of self-determination—stab every Muslim in the back who wants to prevent the Talibanization of his live.

National Socialism and Anti-Semitism in the Arab World
Tradition obliges: Nazi Haj Amin al-Husseini, Mufti of Jerusalem, supreme Palestinian Arab leader, president of the World Islamic Congress and Arab League founding member conspired with Hitler to destroy the Jews and helped recruiting the Moslem SS Handschar Division. Left - the Mufti saluting recruits wearing fez with Nazi eagle and SS Totenkopf (skull), on the collar patch Nazi swastika and Islam's sword. Right - Moslem SS recruits studying the Nazi tractate "Islam and Judaism".

Hitler's Mein Kampf In East Jerusalem and PA Territories (MEMRI, Oct 1, 1999): "An Arabic translation of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf is being distributed by Al-Shurouq, a Ramallah based book distributor, to East Jerusalem and territories controlled by the PA. According to Agence France Presse (Sept. 8), the book, previously banned by Israel, has been allowed by the PA and is 6th on the Palestinian best-seller list."

Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, a.k.a. Abu Mazen (MEMRI, May 30, 2002): Number of Jewish Victims in the Holocaust Might be "Even Less Than a Million..." Zionist Movement Collaborated with Nazis to "Expand the Mass Extermination" of the Jews.
How much is 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust?
The Arab/Muslim Nazi Connection (Christian Action for Israel, Apr/May 2000): "Hitler's Mein Kampf currently ranks sixth on the best-seller list among Palestinian Arabs. Luis Al-Haj, translator of the Arabic edition, writes glowingly in the preface about how Hitler's "ideology" and his "theories of nationalism, dictatorship and race… are advancing especially within our Arabic States."

National Socialism and Anti-Semitism in the Arab World (Matthias Küntzel, JPSR, Spring 2005): "Anti-Semitism based on the notion of a Jewish world conspiracy is not rooted in Islamic tradition but, rather, in European ideological models. The decisive transfer of this ideology to the Muslim world took place between 1937 and 1945 under the impact of Nazi propaganda. Important to this process were the Arabic-language service broadcast by the German shortwave transmitter in Zeesen between 1939 and 1945, and the role of Haj Amin el-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, who was the first to translate European anti-Semitism into an Islamic context. Although Islamism is an independent, anti-Semitic, antimodern mass movement, its main early promoters – the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Mufti and the Qassamites in Palestine – were supported financially and ideologically by agencies of the German National Socialist government."

Hamas Charter, article 7, (Palestine Center, Aug 9, 2003): “The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!"

Hamas Charter, article 22, (Palestine Center, Aug 9. 2003): "The enemies have been scheming for a long time, and they have consolidated their schemes, in order to achieve what they have achieved. They took advantage of key elements in unfolding events, and accumulated a huge and influential material wealth which they put to the service of implementing their dream. This wealth [permitted them to] take over control of the world media such as news agencies, the press, publication houses, broadcasting and the like. [They also used this] wealth to stir revolutions in various parts of the globe in order to fulfill their interests and pick the fruits. They stood behind the French and the Communist Revolutions and behind most of the revolutions we hear about here and there. They also used the money to establish clandestine organizations which are spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies and carry out Zionist interests. Such organizations are: the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, B’nai B’rith and the like. All of them are destructive spying organizations. They also used the money to take over control of the Imperialist states and made them colonize many countries in order to exploit the wealth of those countries and spread their corruption therein. As regards local and world wars, it has come to pass and no one objects, that they stood behind World War I, so as to wipe out the Islamic Caliphate. They collected material gains and took control of many sources of wealth. They obtained the Balfour Declaration and established the League of Nations in order to rule the world by means of that organization. They also stood behind World War II, where they collected immense benefits from trading with war materials and prepared for the establishment of their state. They inspired the establishment of the United Nations and the Security Council to replace the League of Nations, in order to rule the world by their intermediary. There was no war that broke out anywhere without their fingerprints on it: “…As often as they light a fire for war, Allah extinguishes it. Their efforts are for corruption in the land and Allah loves not corrupters.” Sura V (Al-Ma’ida—the Tablespread), verse 64 The forces of Imperialism in both the Capitalist West and the Communist East support the enemy with all their might, in material and human terms, taking turns between themselves. When Islam appears, all the forces of Unbelief unite to confront it, because the Community of Unbelief is one. “Oh ye who believe! Take not for intimates others than your own folk, who would spare no pain to ruin you. Hatred is revealed by [the utterance of] their mouth, but that which their breasts hide is greater. We have made plain for you the revelations if you will understand.” Sura III, (Al-Imran), verse 118 It is not in vain that the verse ends with God’s saying: “If you will understand.”

Depiction of Jews in the Koran (IslamOnline.net, accessed Dec 16,2009): It is easy for them to slay people and kill innocents. Nothing in the world is dear to their hearts than shedding blood and murdering human beings. They never give up this trait even with the Messengers and the Prophets. Allah says: “…and slew the prophets wrongfully.” (Al-Baqarah: 61).

Excerpt from the "Constitution" of Arafat's Fatah: " Article (12): Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence."

"Jews in Grave Danger in All Moslem Lands"(NYT, May 16, 1948), excerpts:

"text of a law drafted by the Political Committee of the Arab League which was intended to govern the legal status of Jewish residents of Arab League countries. It provides that beginning on an unspecified date all Jews except citizens of non-Arab states, would be considered 'members of the Jewish minority state of Palestine.' Their bank accounts would be frozen and used to finance resistance to 'Zionist ambitions in Palestine.' Jews believed to be active Zionists would be interned and their assets confiscated." "Already in some Moslem states such as Syria and Lebanon there is a tendency to regard all Jews as Zionist agents and 'fifth columnists.' There have been violent incidents with feeling running high. There are indications that the stage is being set for a tragedy of incalculable proportions." "In Syria a policy of economic discrimination is in effect against Jews. 'Virtually all' Jewish civil servants in the employ of the Syrian Government have been discharged. Freedom of movement has been 'practically abolished.' Special frontier posts have been established to control movements of Jews." "In Iraq no Jew is permitted to leave the country unless he deposits £5,000 ($20,000) with the Government to guarantee his return. No foreign Jew is allowed to enter Iraq even in transit." "In Lebanon Jews have been forced to contribute financially to the fight against the United Nations partition resolution on Palestine. Acts of violence against Jews are openly admitted by the press, which accuses Jews of 'poisoning wells,' etc." "Conditions vary in the Moslem countries. They are worst in Yemen and Afghanistan, whence many Jews have fled in terror to India. Conditions in most of the countries have deteriorated in recent months, this being particularly true of Lebanon, Iran and Egypt. In the countries farther west along the Mediterranean coast conditions are not so bad. It is feared, however that if a full-scale war breaks out, the repercussions will be grave for Jews all the way from Casablanca to Karachi."

Antizionism and Antisemitism in the Contemporary Islamic Milieu (Shaykh Abdul Hadi Palazzi, Cultural Institute of the Italian Islamic Community): "As a Muslim and a man of religion, I am really disappointed in realizing that people who claim to be my co-religionists are involved in supporting this kind of criminal ideology, and trying to appropriate those guidelines of European antisemitic thought that prepared the ground for the Shoah. On the contrary, I hereby remind that the Islamic territory has been for many century a land of refuge for those Jews that were discriminated and persecuted in Europe; I am proud of the fact that ‘Omar Ibn al-Khattâb ended the ban preventing Jews to live in Jerusalem, while Salâh al-Dîn, after liberating Jerusalem from the hands of the Crusades, wrote to Jewish leaders, "Your exile is over, and whoever wants to come back is welcome".

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion - An Egyptian Version (ADL): Published by: Dar al-Turath, Cairo, Egypt, Year Published: NA. The introductory note by the translator Muhammad Khalifa al-Tunisi is from 1976. The foreword to the book was written by Abbas Mahmud al-Aqqad, who also prefaced previous editions published in Egypt. Excerpt from the introductory note by the translator Muhammad Khalifa al-Tunisi: “The Jewish threat is an evil which affects not only our country, but all the countries and nations of the world. We have no choice but to remain fully alert towards its machinations, and persevere in our holy war (jihad) against it, as best as we can. We warn against it, for it is a satanic force, which strives to corrupt the nations of the world and spread hostility and hatred among people both as individuals and groups. Their purpose is to gain sole control over the world and take advantage of all that is valuable in it” (p. 12). A Updated Version. Published by: Maktabat al-Iman, al-Mansura, near al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt, Year Published: 1994. Excerpt from the notes to the Arabic translation: “To the Reader: Watch over this copy of the book, because the Jews have waged war against this book whenever and wherever it appeared, and in whatever language. They were prepared to spend any amount of money in order to gather its copies and burn them, so as to conceal from the world their satanic schemes plotted against us, which are revealed in all their abomination in this book.” (p. 6).

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion - The Palestinian version (ADL): Source: Chapters of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion that appeared in al-Shuhada, a monthly publication of the Political Indoctrination Apparatus of the Palestinian Border Guard which operates in the Gaza Strip (Issue No. 44, November/December 2001). “Because of all these, the Jew has no choice but to indulge, in his relations with others, in using any vile means such as theft, deceit, exploitation, fraud and usury. They also authorize him to kill, like Moses did, as described in the Bible and the Talmud, when he killed the Egyptian in a calculated and premeditated act and did not spare his life. Killing a non-Jew, a “Goy” [gentile], is, according to the Rabbis, an offering to God, which appeases God and earns the offerer a reward. This is because the non-Jews are enemies of God and the Jews, and they are beasts which one is entitled to kill by whatever means available.”

The Booksellers of Tehran (Matthias Kuntzel, Wall Street Journal, Oct 28, 2005): Every book fair exhibits bestsellers. But anti-Semitic bestsellers? And in Germany, of all places? Last week at the Frankfurt Book Fair, I happened to find myself in the International Publishers section and was simply astonished. At the stand of the Iranian publishers, in plain view, was the text that influenced Hitler's Holocaust fantasies like no other: "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion," published in English by the Islamic Propagation Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The first page of the tract makes clear that Israel is the target of this new edition. It shows a snake made of triangles, enclosing an area labeled "Greater Israel" that includes large areas of Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, parts of Turkey and northern Saudi Arabia. Each triangle, according to the annotation, symbolizes the "Freemason's Eye," supposedly a "symbol of Jewry." A few steps farther on, the second most important classic of modern anti-Semitism was on display: Henry Ford's "The International Jew," in a 200-page abbreviated version, published by the Iranian "Department of Translation and Publication, Islamic Culture and Relations Organization." It was interesting to read the numerous footnotes that the Iranian publisher had added. For example, Salman Rushdie's "Satanic Verses" is presented as the latest example of the viciousness of Jewish slanders. A third anti-Semitic screed caught my attention for its gaudy cover: A red Star of David over a gray skull and a yellow map of the world. Its title was "Tale of the 'Chosen People' and the Legend of 'Historical Right,'" written by Mohammad Taqi Taqipour. In his foreword, the author is certain of another "final solution": Given the "global Islamic movement," Israel will soon be destroyed.

New Type of Antisemitism Danger (Prof. Yehuda Bauer, Academic Advisor to Yad Vashem): "Nazism, Stalinist communism, and radical Islam are, to be sure, different from each other, but they also have a certain similarity: all three aim, or aimed, at exclusive control over the world, all three oppose or opposed all expressions of democracy, and all three attacked Jews, though in different ways and with different grades of extremism."

Kill a Jew for Allah. The Mideast problem. (John Derbyshire, NRO, Mar 22, 2002): "Look: Possibly there would be some abstract justice in closing down the settlements, I don't know. I don't see it myself, I must admit. Why should Jews not live among Arabs? Lots of Arabs live in Israel, and do very well there. There are rich Israeli Arabs; there are Israeli-Arab pop stars and comedians; there are Israeli-Arab intellectuals, teachers, writers, businessmen, athletes. Why, when the whole thing gets sorted out, should there not be Jews living in Arab territory — as there were for centuries past? What, exactly, is wrong with the settlements? I don't see it."

The anti-Semitic lies that threaten all of us (Harold Evans, Times Online, Jun 28,2002): "Rampant anti-Semitism in the Muslim world, from schools to press, TV and internet, not only makes Middle East peace impossible, but makes us all targets now "

The Mideast: A cesspool of hate. Tribal politics and a willingness by Arab-Muslims to blame others for their own problems are contributing factors to today's anti-Semitism Salim Mansur, Toronto Sun, Dec 30, 2003): "Writing as a Muslim, ... For what is involved here in the spreading slime of anti-Semitism among many Arabs and Muslims - as it once was in Europe - is the wreckage of Islam."

Treatment of Israel strikes an alien note (Prof. Alan M. Dershowitz, National Post): "If a visitor from a far away galaxy were to land at an American or Canadian university and peruse some of the petitions that were circulating around the campus, he would probably come away with the conclusion that the Earth is a peaceful and fair planet with only one villainous nation determined to destroy the peace and to violate human rights. That nation would not be Iraq, Libya, Serbia, Russia or Iran. It would be Israel."

The Vatican's Terrorism Omission (Prof. Alan M. Dershowitz, FP, Aug 1, 2005

Sabotaging Israel's Red Star of David (Israel Report, Oct 2002): "The Magen David Adom (MDA), the Red Star of David, was born 52 years ago. It is the Red Cross, except with a Jewish symbol. Its purpose is to protect life and health and to alleviate human suffering. It serves, without discrimination, the entire Israeli population, including 1.1-million Israeli Arabs, and Palestinian Arabs in need. MDA is not a government agency. It sought membership in the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) with the Red Star of David as its emblem. The Star of David is the symbol of the Jewish people as well as of Israel. Surrender of its emblem should not be a condition of membership. But its application for membership of the IFRC was rejected at the 1949 Geneva Conventions, which required all new national aid societies to adopt the Red Cross symbol. And yet since that time some 25 Red Crescent Societies representing the Muslim world have been admitted to the IFRC which is now called the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Services. Every effort Israel has made to obtain recognition of MDA's emblem has failed due to tremendous world anti-Israel sentiment. MDA's exclusion and the non-recognition of its symbol are blatant examples of the ongoing campaign to delegitimize the Jewish State. The IFRC's treatment of MDA as a pariah is shameful."Hiding behind a crystal (JP, Dec 11, 2005): "... the 192 signatories of the Geneva Conventions decided to adopt a new international symbol - the Red Crystal - alongside the Red Cross and the Red Crescent. Now it seems, for the first time, Israel's Magen David Adom (MDA) can join the 182 members of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies ... The new Red Crystal is a simple, bold diamond shape ... MDA will continue to use its current symbol, the red Star of David, in Israel, and internationally can use either an empty crystal or one with a Star of David inside it. MDA and Israeli diplomats have been working toward such a solution for years, though it clearly does not give the symbol of the Jewish people the same status as the cross and the crescent. Those other two symbols do not have to appear within the crystal when operating internationally; the Star of David will. Advocates of the crystal point out that the International Committee of the Red Cross was actually looking for such a symbol, even leaving aside the "problem" of Israel's membership, since the Red Cross was having trouble operating in some Muslim countries under its own symbol. Presumably, therefore, MDA will not be the only member society operating under the crystal in some hot spots; so will the Red Cross ... Why could there not have been four recognized symbols: a cross, crescent, crystal and the Star of David? Or alternatively, why were the cross and crescent not - like our star will be - forced inside the crystal when operating internationally? There are no good answers to these questions. Evidently even a humanitarian movement, and one which perhaps more than any international body purportedly prides itself on neutrality and impartiality, can baldly discriminate against the Jewish state for decades, and then adopt a "solution" that continues to discriminate against the symbol of the Jewish people. There is, furthermore, a wider problem with the new arrangement: Rather than rejecting and combatting hatred, it accommodates violence and intolerance. It is no coincidence that, after over half a century of tolerating the rejection of the Star of David, the Red Cross has itself in recent years found it increasingly difficult to operate, and began to seek cover. Though the crystal is being portrayed as the solution to a general problem, namely places where one symbol or another is not tolerated, in practice the intolerance flows almost entirely in one direction: from the Muslim world against the Star of David and, recently, against the Red Cross too. It is almost impossible to conceive of a situation in which a Christian country, by contrast, would take violent offense to a rescue mission operating under a Red Crescent. By bowing for so long to the utter rejection of the symbol of the Jewish people, and then devising for it a second-class status, the international community legitimized a hatred that is the antithesis of the Red Cross mission and the cause of many of the casualties it treats. Why should a Red Cross ambulance, whose only mission is to save lives, not be able to operate in Muslim areas? Why does Israel have to beg Muslim countries for the right to openly help their peoples recover from national disasters? Most perplexingly, how has this blinding intolerance become so "normal" that such questions are not even asked? Thursday's decision on the new symbol was, in a step almost unheard on such issues, taken by a vote rather than by consensus. Over 20 Muslim countries, led by Syria, voted no. For these countries, even hiding Israel behind a crystal was plainly too much tolerance. And in the end, it was not just Israel that attempted to hide itself from a hatred in many Islamic countries so deep it extends even to those who would save their own peoples' lives. It was the entire West as well."

Israel's second-class status at the UN (Anne Bayefsky, National Pos, Feb 18, 2003):
"In fact, the only remaining elected Israeli on a UN body anywhere is Mayer Gabay, vice-chair of the UN Administrative Tribunal -- whose term ends in December of this year and who is not permitted by general rules concerning time limits to stand for re-election.

By contrast, Egypt has members on all six of the UN human rights treaty bodies. In fact, the Egyptian candidate for the Committee on the Rights of the Child was elected with the highest number of votes by the 191 parties to the Child Convention. This is despite the fact that the leading child rights international NGO (based in Geneva) put out an advisory to countries before the vote. It said: "NGOs feel that she is not very knowledgeable nor reliable on the issues ... due to her strong affiliation and history with the Egyptian government." Translation: When countries of interest to Egypt are considered by the committee, an Egyptian government official sits close to the "independent" Egyptian member just to make sure they get it right.

Israel is also the only UN member state denied membership in any of the UN's five regional groups, which elect UN bodies in Geneva. Elections in the UN are normally based on regional representation or slates prearranged by regional groups. Israel qualifies for membership in the Western European and Others Group (WEOG), composed of geographically diverse states including Canada and Australia. But WEOG, driven by states such as France, refuses to admit Israel to its Geneva operations. This has the consequence that Israel cannot be elected to a whole range of UN bodies. For instance, Israel cannot stand for election to WIPO -- the World Intellectual Property Organization. Similarly, Israel is prevented from running for the International Labour Organization's Governing Body.

Lacking UN regional group membership in Geneva means that Israel is the only UN member forced to sit out consultations on draft resolutions and UN Geneva-based business of all kinds. Israel is refused any possibility of participating in the consultations of regional bodies in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development the World Health Organization. The meetings behind closed doors of regional groups at the Commission on Human Rights negotiate the language of resolutions on all subjects without any Israeli participation. In recent years, Sweden and Co. in the European Union have enjoyed negotiating an agreed-upon level of hostility on the myriad anti-Israel resolutions with Arab states on the commission, before Israeli diplomats got a copy of a first draft."

The U.N.'s Dirty Little Secret. The international body refuses to condemn anti-Semitism (Anne Bayefsky, Wall Street Journal, Dec 8, 2003): "A draft resolution on anti-Semitism--which would have been a first in the U.N.'s 58-year history--was withdrawn in the face of Arab and Muslim opposition."

Undiplomatic Imbalance | The antisemitism at the U.N. is a problem for more than just Israel (Anne Bayefsky, NRO, Dec 13, 2004): "To appreciate fully the extent to which the U.N. has been taken over, observe November 29th, the annual U.N. Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which is the only U.N. day dedicated to a specific people. The occasion was held in the U.N.'s elaborate Trusteeship Council before hundreds of delegates. At the front of the room sat the secretary general, the president of the General Assembly, and the chair of that main U.N. body, the Committee on Palestinian Rights. In a repeat of previous years' performances, beside them stood a U.N. flag, a Palestinian flag, and in between, a map in Arabic pre-dating the existence of the U.N. member state of Israel. All participants were asked to rise for "a minute of silence...for all those who have given their lives for the cause of the Palestinian people..." — which would include suicide bombers."

Muslim Anti-Semitism: A Clear and Present Danger (Robert S. Wistrich): "What is particularly spine-chilling about the new Muslim anti-Semitism is that it appropriates symbols and motifs from classic European anti-Jewish bigotry and from Nazi propaganda. Thus, in illustrations reproduced in this volume one sees images of Jews with hook noses or as devil figures, Israelis with swastikas or as drinkers of the blood of children. Hate literature, such as the notorious nineteenthcentury forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, has been resurrected and published in numerous editions throughout the Arab world. The blood libel-the calumny that Jews require the blood of non-Jews for ritual purposes-resurfaced from the mouth of the Syrian defense minister, Mustafa Tlas, and most recently from a medical professor in an article in the mainstream Saudi newspaper Al-Riyadh. Arabic editions of Mein Kampf are selling briskly in, among other places, London and the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas."

The demonology of SE Asian Islamists (Australian MP Michael Danby, Jerusalem Post, Aug 31, 31, 2003): "Sue and Donna lived in Elwood and Port Melbourne respectively, suburbs in my constituency in Melbourne, where I serve as a federal member of parliament. Sue and Donna were killed whilst enjoying a holiday in Bali, and now Donna leaves behind a disabled four-year-old. As justification for their murderous acts in Bali, two of the known perpetrators, Amrozi bin Nurhasyim and Imam Samudra, have focused their rhetoric on revenge 'against the Jews,' despite the fact that, to the best of my knowledge, there are no Jews in Indonesia. ... Where European anti-Semites saw the Jews as the sworn enemies of Christianity, the Indonesian anti-Semites see the Jews and Christians as allies. Imam Samudra says the Bali bombing was designed 'to carry out my responsibility to wage global jihad against Jews and Christians throughout the world.' When Samudra was led from court on 26 June, he yelled: 'Destroy Christians, destroy America, destroy Jews!' ... Poor Indonesian youth are attending religious schools (madrassas) and some of them are being indoctrinated by Wahabist preachers funded from Saudi Arabia. The result has been to reconnect Indonesian Islam with the Islamist strand of the Arab world, with its prevalent strains of anti-Western and anti-Semitic ideology."

Hatred of Israel is a crutch Arab states have to give up (Ruth Wisse, Wall Street Journal, Jun 16, 2003): "In almost identical ways [to the Nazis], the autocrats who govern Arab societies have used the "Zionist entity" to deflect attention from the worst aspects of their rule. The unwanted presence of the Jews became the rallying point for internal dissatisfaction with the mounting problems of Arab regimes. The drumbeat against Israel invited the world to debate the iniquities of the Jews rather than question the legitimacy of the attacks against them. This comparison is not intended to equate the Germans with the Arabs, except in the ways that both exploited anti-Semitism to achieve broader political goals. Both used the alleged threat of "the Jews" to excuse their own failures. Anti-Semitism in both situations linked otherwise warring groups of the Left and Right. The problem with anti-Semitism in its older and newer varieties is that it seems to serve its patrons so well. Without question, Arab rulers successfully deflected attention from their offenses by their decades of war and propaganda against Israel. Even the liberal Western media that might have been expected to support a besieged fellow democracy have long since focused on alleged Israeli abuses instead of on the abuses of their Arab accusers."

On Hating Israel. What we know but can't say out loud. (Victor Davis Hanson, NRO)
Why Israel, and not Sudan, is singled out (Boston Globe, Charles Jacoby, Oct 5, 2002)
Oriana Fallaci on Anti-Semitism

Rousing Muslim bigotry (Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe, Oct 23, 2003): Mahathir delivered his diatribe at an Islamic summit meeting on Oct. 16. His theme was the anti-Semite's timeless plaint: The Jews are few but crafty, and the world is in their grip. "The Europeans killed 6 million Jews out of 12 million, but today the Jews rule the world by proxy," Mahathir told the leaders of 57 Muslim nations. "They get others to fight and die for them." He lamented that Jews are an enemy "who think. They survived 2,000 years of pogroms not by hitting back, but by thinking. They invented . . . socialism, communism, human rights, and democracy so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong -- so they may enjoy equal rights with others. With these they have now gained control of the most powerful countries." And how should the world's Muslims deal with the Jews? Mahathir urged them to learn from Mohammed's example -- to buy time by making "strategic retreats" and signing peace accords, then building up their strength until they are ready to launch a "counterattack" that will lead to "final victory."
To [Prime Minister of Malaysia] Mahathir Mohamad (Amos Asa-El, JP, Oct. 23, 2003): "The question, therefore, is not why you are after the Jews - that's because of your insecurity and our perceived vulnerability - and also not what the Jews will do in response, because today's Jews, unlike their forefathers, can be counted on to confront people like you and the challenge they represent. The question is why you are so frustrated? And the answer in one word is: envy. Not only has Western civilization advanced as dramatically as it has; in recent years non-Western Japan, China, and India, as well as semi-Western Russia and Latin America have also joined the future. Most Muslim countries, at the same time, have not only stagnated, but in fact backtracked, seeing the gaps between them and much of the rest of the world grow even deeper than they were a century ago."

What if it's not Israel they loathe? (Paris-based Iranian Amir Taheri, JP, Dec 2, 2004): "There are no free elections or reliable opinion polls in the Arab world. So no one knows what the silent majority really thinks. The best one can do is rely on anecdotal evidence. On that basis, I came to believe that the Palestine-Israel issue was low down on the list of priorities for the man in the street but something approaching an obsession for the political, business, and intellectual elites. ... The reason why the elites fake passion about this issue is that it is the only one on which they agree. In many cases, it is also the only political issue that people can discuss without running into trouble with the secret services."

The Pathology of Jewish Anti-Semitism (Steven Plaut, FP, Feb 16, 2010): Most Jews dismiss such people as “self-hating,” but this term is misleading at best. These rogues do not hate themselves. Indeed they are narcissistic to the core. They hate other Jews and wish them harm. Nor are these Jewish anti-Semites simply assimilationists of Jewish descent who have lost interest in their heritage, become indifferent towards the history of their people and therefore casually alienated from Israel and its travails. On the contrary, anti-Semitic Jews are intensely involved in their “roots” and use them adroitly as protective coloration from which they advance their treasonous notions. In some extreme cases they collaborate with Neo-Nazis, Islamist terrorists, and even Holocaust Deniers. | The Psychology of Populations under Chronic Siege, Kenneth Levin, JCPA, July 2, 2006
