Merkel Speaks in Berlin Against Antisemitism

“Germany will do all it can to fight Antisemitism”, Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a speech not too long ago, following a surge of abuse against Jews and spreading anti-Israeli sentiment aroused by the Gaza conflict this past summer.
Merkel made her pledge to thousands at a landmark rally protesting a rise in Antisemitism that authorities and Jewish leaders blame mainly on Muslim extremists and young immigrants, saying anyone who attacks Jews is attacking all of Germany.

 

Obama: Unite Against Antisemitism, Hatred & Violence

President Barack Obama made a comment on the apparent hate-crime shootings of Jews in Overland Park, Kansas, in April 2014.

“That this occurred now — as Jews were preparing to celebrate Passover, as Christians were observing Palm Sunday –makes this tragedy all the more painful. And today, as Passover begins, we’re seeing a number of synagogues and Jewish community centers take added security precautions. Nobody should have to worry about their security when gathering with their fellow believers. No one should ever have to fear for their safety when they go to pray.”

 

Ban Ki-moon at the General Assembly Meeting on the Rise of Antisemitism

Secretary-General’s video message for the Informal Meeting of the General Assembly to address concerns of a rise in Antisemitism worldwide

“The fight against anti-Semitism is inseparable from our wider quest for peaceful coexistence and human rights for all. Where anti-Semitism flourishes, other forms of discrimination are sure to be there, too. But when we counter anti-Semitism, we uphold our common humanity. The fight against anti-Semitism is a fight for all of us.”

 

Pope Francis: No to Every Form of Antisemitism

“Humanity needs our joint witness in favour of respect for the dignity of man and woman created in the image and likeness of God, and in favour of peace which is above all God’s gift.” That was the reflection offered by Pope Francis to the delegation of leaders of the “International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations,” whom he received today in the Vatican. In the course of the encounter, the Pope recalled the conciliar document Nostra Aetate, “a key point of reference for relations with the Jewish people,” which, among other things, “also firmly condemned hatred, persecution and all forms of anti-Semitism.” “Due to our common roots,” the Holy Father said, “a Christian cannot be anti-Semtic”.

JewTube Weekly: When Hatred Penetrates

Anti-Semitism on Daily Basis: When Hatred Penetrates Mass Communication

“Shabbat Hunter” – an anti-Semitic Iranian Film

“Shabbat hunter” is a film that became a major hit in Iran. In the center of the highly budgeted film stands a Zionist rabbi, presented with a handful of negative stereotypes, who turns his grandson into a murder whose goal is to kill all gentiles.

Al-Shatat (the Diaspora): “Jews Murder A Christian Child and Use His Blood for Passover Matzos.”

The following is a scene from the Syrian-produced TV series “Al-Shatat.” It was first aired on Hizbullah’s Al-Manar TV during the month of Ramadan 2003, and then on two Iranian channels during Ramadan 2004. Al-Mamnou’ TV, a new Jordanian channel, aired “Al-Shatat” during Ramadan 2005.

 

The Iranian Cinema Weapons – Modern anti-Semitism and Defamation of Israel and the Jewish world.

In recent years, Iranian distributors, in dozens of documentary films, share one purpose: smear and create de-legitimization of the Jewish community and the State of Israel through propaganda-driven documentaries.
These films are sold at fairs, both locally and internationally (to a western audience.)

The Iranians also produce feature films with high budget, starring local celebrities, which are aimed at the domestic or Islamic and Arab broadcast channels on satellite.

The plots of these films often pass the border of similarity in the way described Israelis or Jews. That it is difficult in view descriptions, involving forms Antisemitism and hatred of Jews that were mostly known during the Middle Ages.

Brainwashing of the audience in the Arab world (and the in the West) is a war of modern times. A cruel weapon for shameless propaganda.

 

Anti- Semitic Play on Egyptian TV: Mossad Agents Behind Arab Spring

“The Spy” is an Egyptian play that was performed on 2014 (the days after the revolution against President Hossni Mubark.) It represents the Israeli Mossad with anti-Semitic characteristics and symbols. The plot takes action at the time of the revolutions, showing that the Mossad ridiculously was trying to take advantage of the revolution to take control over the Arab world.

Why Jews Are Awesome?

why jews are awsome כותרת

1. We can celebrate our birthday twice a year: The first time according to the Gregorian calender we all know and use daily, and the second time according to the Hebrew calendar. You don’t have to bring us two gifts. That is, unless you really want to…

2. We eat sufganiyot (like a doughnut but without the hole and with jelly or other cream inside) for 8 whole days during the holiday of Hanukkah, and cannot be judged about it (we just follow tradition, after all.)

 

3. Confessions? Not for us! We have a special day, called Yom Kippur, where we atone our sins from the passing year. During this day, many of us don’t eat or drink or use electricity, and some even spend the entire day at the synagogue. The paved roads are also empty (traditionally, we do’t drive on this day,)  so that children ride their bikes freely and basically no one walks on the pavements.

 

4. We celebrate Valentine’s Day twice! Once on Febuary 14, like the rest of the world, and the second time on “Tu Be’Av” (the fifteenth of the month Av) according to the Hebrew calendar

 

5. We celebrate Purim, which is the non-scary, all fun version of Halloween.We wear costumes and give each other “Mishloach Manot,” which is basucally a package of candies. Best thing about this holiday? You’re never too old for Purim!

 

  1. We have one holiday, called Lag B’Omer, where all you can smell in the air all across the country, is roasted marshmellow (s’mores anyone?) Sure, this holiday has its religious roots and traditions, but fur many of us – it’s all about sitting around bonfires until sunrise.
