Arabs & Jew Hatred (anti-Semitism)

Wall Street Journal - Referred by Jersey Girl

[...]  Jews around Europe are increasingly under attack since Israel decided two weeks ago to defend itself after years of rocket fire at its civilian population. There have been arson attempts on synagogues in Britain, Belgium and Germany. Police last week arrested Muslim protesters who wanted to enter the Jewish quarter in Antwerp. Several Danish schools with large Muslim student bodies say they won't enroll Jewish kids because they can't guarantee the children's safety. In France, a group of teenagers attacked a 14-year-old girl last week, calling her "dirty Jew" while kicking her.

At rallies in Germany and the Netherlands over the past two weeks, protesters shouted, "Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the Gas." In Amsterdam,Socialist lawmaker Harry van Bommel and Greta Duisenberg, widow of the first European Central Bank president, marched at the front of one such "peace" demonstration. They didn't join in the background chorus calling for another Holocaust. Instead, they chanted, "Intifada, Intifada, Free Palestine." Mr. Van Bommel later insisted this wasn't a call for Jewish blood but for "civil disobedience" -- a laughable defense given that terrorists during the last intifada murdered more than 1,000 Israelis.

Most of the anti-Jewish violence and protests in Europe come from immigrants. In what may have been a Freudian recognition of the changing face of Europe, CNN two weeks ago used footage of anti-Israeli protesters in London in a report about the growing anger in the "Arab and Muslim world." The mythical Arab Street now reaches deep into Paris, London, Berlin and Madrid.

After a burning car was rammed into a gate outside a synagogue in Toulouse last week, President Nicolas Sarkozy issued a statement that was as morally confused as his judgment of Israel's Gaza offensive. Mr. Sarkozy, who condemned both Hamas terror and Israel's attempt to stop it, also blurred the distinction between the victims and perpetrators of anti-Semitism in. [...]

  1. Jersey Girl loves to blame Israel for this. Apparently the Satmar Rebbe also blamed Israel and the Zionists for anti-Semitism. And if you point out the inconvenient fact that the Holocaust happened before the State was declared, well THAT was caused by the Zionists. And if you point out that the 1929 Hebron massacre happened to one of the oldest Jewish communities in Israel, not to a new Zionist yishuv, well that's the fault of them Zionists too, ain't it.

    And if you mention Chelmnieski, the Crusades, the blood libels, the Inquistion, are the Zionists responsible for that too?

    Jersey Girl and her crowd would like to think that by distancing themselves from the awful Zionists, the world will come to see that there are two types of Jews - sinning Zionists and holy, pure anti-Zionists and they will continue to hate the former and love the latter. And if they come to hate the latter, well they're confusing them with those Zionists again, aren't they.
