Convenient Anti-Semitism....

Arab and Muslims hate Jews. Some may say that this is really due to the conflict between Israel and the regional Arabs and this has manifested itself as hatred there. If the existence of Israel is truly the root of the problem then why are Arabs attacking Jews in the streets of Europe and desecrating graves there? Some may point or use the concept of Zionism as a convenient excuse but how does one distinguish between Zionist Jews and those that are European? Are all Jews Zionist and what the heck is a Zionist these days anyway? And how about the programs in Iran and Iraq since WWII that essentially cleansed those countries of Jews? Jews have resided in some of these countries for ages but have over the past century been cleansed out of several Middle-Eastern nations. Where did this hatred come from? All the way from the Palestinian-Israeli conflict? I think not.

The bottom line, is that Arabs and Muslims are searching for a scapegoat for their problems and dysfunctional societies and have choosen Jews, like the Nazis did 70 years ago as a wedge against the West. This serves to further their narrow political aims in the region and the world and Europe is falling for the ruse.

But somewhat more troubling to me,is that it appears as if Europe is again willing to allow their anti-Semitism to bubble to the surface. It has become convenient for Europeans to ignore the problems of anti-Semitism in their midst. This is seen in the failure to address anti-Semitic activities by Muslim groups in Europe that is not being addressed as vigorously as I think that it should be.
At the University of Geneva, a Jewish researcher wearing a small Star of David necklace was attacked in a campus elevator by Arab students. When she reported the attack, she was told not to wear the necklace in public.

In Hasselt, Belgium, Muslim fans at a soccer match between the Israeli and Belgian national teams waved Hamas and Hezbollah banners, and chanted: "Jews to the gas chambers!" and "Strangle the Jews!"

The British Political Cartoon Society awarded first prize in its annual competition to a cartoon depicting a gigantic, naked Ariel Sharon biting off the head of an Arab baby. "What's wrong," reads the caption, "you've never seen a politician kissing a baby?"

In Germany, scores of Jewish graves and Holocaust memorials have been defaced. At the cemetery in Beeskow, for example, "Heil Hitler" and "Crap on the six million lie" were painted on gravestones. At Langenstein-Zwieberge, a sub-camp of the notorious Buchenwald concentration camp, vandals plastered the walls with copies of anti-Semitic Third Reich newspapers
Recent condemnation of Israeli defensive actions against a violent and ruthless enemy camped on their border drew strong criticism from Europe and the useful idiots at the UN. Where was the strong condemnation of Hezbollah or their backers, Iran and Syria. Probably due to this and this is very troubling...
An EU poll found that nearly 60 percent of its citizens believe Israel is the greatest threat to world peace.
Ahead of Iran, Iraq, and North Korea, this is completely absurd and ultimately dangerous. Israel is not the threat but the Arabs and Muslims who have attacked and provoked Israel numerous times over the past 60 years. I heard it said 'if Arabs laid down there arms there would be peace. If Israel laid down their arms, there would be no Jews.' The conflict there is being driven by Muslim Arabs since this is part of their agenda. And Israel is being forced, in my humble opinion, to defend itself vigorously as we will be when they attack us.

Anti-Semitism, brewing in the Democracies of Europe and the US...
New anti-Semitism. Starting in the latter part of the 20th century, a new style of anti-Semitism began to appear. The basis of this anti-Semitism appears to be more political in nature, often overlapping, and being (intentionally) confused with anti-Zionism. This form of anti-Semitism pervades Left wing politics in both Europe & North America, and is characterized by borrowing language and concepts from anti-Zionism.
This writer, effectively illustrates the history, particularly Nazi strategy to conquer Europe, by driving a wedge in the populace by demonising Jews within those societies. Europe offered up the Jews as sacrifice to the Nazis in the hope of saving their own skins from Nazi brutality. It obviously didn't work.

With the hate filled Muslims, it appears as if they are doing the same thing again. Europeans are weakly offering up the Jews for slaughter in the hope that the bloodthirsty Muslims will not go after them.
That's just what is happening once again before our very eyes. Though the Jihadists have their own clear, even megalomaniac goals, and while they kill thousands in the US or fight for Shari'a in Europe, while they complain about East Timor or fight for Kashmir, it is enough for them to involve the Jews, particularly Israel, in their struggle or their declared agenda to get the active support or at least the indifference of those in Europe, the US and elsewhere who would like to believe that their complaints, grievances and goals are restricted to or only motivated by Israel. Of course, they also declare they're fighting against America, but then, for those who hate America anyway (and often the Jews and/or Israel too), the same logic works perfectly.
When they are done with Israel and the Jews, they will come and attempt to subjugate us to build their glorious caliphate and return the Earth to the laws of God as only they see fit.

I hear many people attempting to say that they support Jews, but do not support Zionism. I am not really sure what they mean by that. Do they support Jews and not the state of Israel? How does that work? Can one support the State of Israel but claim to not be Zionist? Does one listen to the madman leader of Iran that wants to wipe Israel off the face of the map or move the Jews to another place like Europe or Alaska? Is that even remotely reasonable? Then what does one mean by arguing against Zionism? Honestly, it is somewhat perplexing to me.

So what does Europe want to achieve by putting Israel in the penalty box? Would they allow Arabs to slaughter Israeli Jews under the flag of anti-Zionism? Would Europe condemn that action and support Israel? Or would they go through useless motions in the UN taking meaningless actions that have no effect? It just doesn't appear that they would be a useful partner in the case of conflict as they have shown in the recent fight in Lebanon. Europe is trying to appease the Arabs in the hope that they will be left alone. It won't work. Peace is not achieveable with a foe that does not want peace and wants and desires their won death. The blood will be on their hands again and like the Nazis, they will have been the useful idiots in the global jihadists plans for murder and mayhem.

The bottom-line is that I do not think one can be anti-Zionist without being anti-Semitic. These people prefer to sacrifice the Jews to the bloodthirsty Muslims to appease not unlike Aztec priests that cut the hearts of virgins to appease their angry gods.

Civil Rights Leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr identified and strongly condemned anti-Zionism stating
". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews- this is God's own truth.

"Antisemitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently anti-Semitic, and ever will be so.

"Why is this? You know that Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land. The Jewish people, the Scriptures tell us, once enjoyed a flourishing Commonwealth in the Holy Land. From this they were expelled by the Roman tyrant, the same Romans who cruelly murdered Our Lord. Driven from their homeland, their nation in ashes, forced to wander the globe, the Jewish people time and again suffered the lash of whichever tyrant happened to rule over them.

"The Negro people, my friend, know what it is to suffer the torment of tyranny under rulers not of our choosing. Our brothers in Africa have begged, pleaded, requested - DEMANDED the recognition and realization of our inborn right to live in peace under our own sovereignty in our own country.

"How easy it should be, for anyone who holds dear this inalienable right of all mankind, to understand and support the right of the Jewish People to live in their ancient Land of Israel. All men of good will exult in the fulfillment of God's promise, that his People should return in joy to rebuild their plundered land.

This is Zionism, nothing more, nothing less.

Arab anti-Semitism is nothing new. It's been around for centuries:
