“A good Jew is a dead Jew” signs posted in Argentina.

In the neighborhood of Villa Crespo, which is populated by many Jews in Buenos Aires, the citizens woke up this morning to find the streets covered with signs saying “A good Jew is a dead Jew – Nisman is a good Jew”.
Alberto Nisman is the former prosecutor in the AMIA case, who was found dead in his apartment a couple of weeks ago, after he blamed Argentina’s president and its foreign minister of allegedly reaching a settlement with Iran to end the Argentinian investigation of its terrorist attack in the country on July 18, 1994, in exchange for oil and for Iranian investments in Argentina.

Nisman was found dead hours before his planned arrival to the state’s congress in order to present the findings of his investigation. The first to report on the alleged murder is a Jewish-Argentinian journalist, who quickly fled the country and immigrated to Israel after, according to him, Argentinian intelligence agencies started tracing him.

Charlie Hebdo and Jewish conspiracy theories

On Wednesday, the western world experienced yet again the Islamic terror’s attempts to shut down all forms of freedom of speech. Three Islamist gunmen stormed the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris  and opened fire, killing at least 12 people. France, as well as the rest of the world, vowed to always protect freedom of speech and fight terror, and for a day, we were all Charlie Hebdo.

This moment of unity, however, did not last long, as the anti-Semite conspiracy theories began to surface. International online magazine, “International Business Times” posted a story reporting on conspiracy theorists who allege a link between Israeli intelligence and the Paris shootings. The article attempted to claim that the attack was Israel’s doing, in response to Fracne’s parliament support for the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Several hours later they apologized, stating it  “should never have been published and we have therefore removed it from our site. The story was beneath our standards and we apologize for this basic lapse in judgement.” The article was also taken down, but we all know by now that hatred fuels fast, and this false story had already caused its damage.

Antisemitism reaches levels not seen since World War II

This disaster, which struck the city of Sedani, took the lives of 15,889 people and became one of the greatest disasters Japan has known in modern times..

The Ad was published on a local edition of the newspaper “Senaki Shimbon” on November 26. It promoted the works of Richard Koshimizo, an activist who also accused Israel for being responsible for the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in the United States.

Brazil: A Swastika Found at The Bottom of a Pool

During a helicopter tour conducted as part of an unrelated investigation, Brazilian police found a swastika painted on the bottom of a private pool, in the small town of Santa Catarina.

Despite the anti- Semitic message conveyed in such a symbol, local authorities announced that the homeowners would not be indicted, because it is private property. In addition, authorities told CNN that the owner, whose identity was not revealed, is not promoting Nazism, in spite of the Nazi symbol located at the bottom of his pool in the past 13 years.
