Have a read of this self-absorbed paranoid psycho-babble. It is time for Jews to do some serious navel gazing and realize they bring their own downfall on themselves.

Jews, Get Out of Europe!

Anti-Semitism in Western Europe is “the worst since World War II”, according to the Jewish Agency. It will only worsen in the future.

Published: Tuesday, March 20, 2012

While the American Jewish intelligentsia discusses the legitimacy of an Israeli strike on Iran, European anti-Semitism raises its head, leaving on the ground three Jewish childrenand a rabbi in Toulouse.

During the Holocaust, Jews were dispatched to the gas chambers (in France the local police did the “dirty work”).

Seventy years later, in a modern, democratic Europe that presumably had shed itself of the legacy of that era, Jews have again come under attack.

Witnesses of the Toulouse killing spree in the Jewish school tell of students hunted by the terrorist inside the building.

The same thing happened forty years ago in Maalot, when Arab terrorists killed twenty Israeli students in a local school.

A year ago, in Toulouse, which was under the pro-Nazi Vichy regime, the words “Israel Nazi” and “Zionist Nazis” appeared again on the Jewish structures.

The terrorist aimed to slay Jews, only because they were Jews.

The school had absolutely nothing to do with “the occupation”, but has everything to do with the Jewish question.

The attack  resembles most that of  Itamar, when a year ago father, mother and three children were slaughtered in their beds by an Arab commando.

The attack in Toulouse is the culmination of a long anti-Semitic campaign. Two weeks ago, Paris’ Interior Ministry released the statistics of the anti-Jewish wave: 389 anti-Semitic attacks - only - in 2011, at least one every day.

In 2006 Ilan Halimi was kidnapped in Paris by a group of young Muslims. He was tortured for four weeks while they read him pages of the Koran, and then thrown into a landfill to die, covered with mortal wounds.

France is not an isolated case. Anti-Semitism in Western Europe is “the worst since World War II”, according to the Jewish Agency. It will only worsen in the future.

Books such as Mein Kampf and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion are prominently displayed bestsellers in Muslim stores on Edgware Road in the heart of London.

In Sweden, a country described by The Guardian as “the greatest success the world has known,” Jews are leaving large cities such as Malmö due to security reasons, in order to escape anti-Semitic attacks.

The Netherlands, which was once the shelter for the Spanish and Portuguese Jews who fled the 15th century Inquisition, is now a realm of fear, intimidation and subjugation.

Jews are fleeing Antwerp, the city once proudly called “the Northern Jerusalem”. 

Jewish life in France and Europe is not under question, it’s already history.

Maalot, Itamar and Toulouse… Always the same target: the Jewish people and the State of Israel, which the late French ambassador Daniel Bernard called “ce petit pays de merde” - that shitty little country.

Jewish life in France and Europe is not under question, it’s already history. For as comfortable as life might be in the arrondissements of Paris, it is time for the Jews of France to come home.

Before it’s too late, they should leave for Israel. The situation will only worsen. 

Anti-Semitism is an eruption of barbarism in our civilization and the Jews have always been a barometer of tolerance. Europe is living its new nightmare and classical anti-Semitism has become a potent and dangerous mix in countries with enormous Muslim populations.

We will not be surprised if one day, under the Eurabianbanner, these new Europeans will try to expel the descendants of the Holocaust from the land of Israel.

It's known as a parallel... where you can run two opposing ideas at the same time and draw comparisons between the two.
It's part of thinking.
Jews are the (preferred) residents of the Jewish State of Israel.

Really?! :D
Are you sure your hasbara masters would be happy that you're equating Jews with Nazis?

:iitm:
You see that's where the Israel has the right to exist disc would come in handy.

You need to start hanging out with hasbara Christian zionist shills from the States. You'd pick it up then. Though from my experience they are pretty shit house at it too.

Most interesting.

I'm not interesting continuing hasbara "debate" which involves circular chaotic discussion on non-points to divert attention away from the actual topic, which is, "Biased ADL survey shows that 25% of world population is 'Anti-Semitic'".

Jews are clearly not liked in some places are they? 69% in Greece .... well, it is Donmeh Jews from Thessalonika that now control Turkey ... the French aren't that fond either, nor the Spanish. Even Germany has 27% (supposedly) of this survey that don't like Jews.

Didn't the MSDAP message sink in???

Why don't they all bugger off and go live in their self-professed promised land? That is the home for the Jewish people (well, at the moment). They aren't liked in Europe, so why don't they do the logical thing and go live there?

So wait... you think Israel is an illegal state & that Jews have no business there.... but they should go & live there.

It is an illegal nation State, created as the Jewish homeland. Jews should all go live there. It still exists.

The illegal state will collapse in time, and Jews will be a minority in the area. But hey ho. They've brought it upon themselves.

If you believe it's illegal why would you encourage people to go there?
It would only enlarge the problem of territory with Palestinians.
Anti-semitism can have varying degrees..... as is well documented throughout history and particularly leading to the nazi party. Anti-semitism was prominent in Germany for a long time as it was throughout most of the Christian world and it would be fair to say it was largely based on distorted generalisations from dominating religious points of views. But many times in history people would harbour anti-semitism yet at the same time hold friends & do business with Jews. It was a large part of accepted and unquestioned culture repeated dogmatically that the omnipotent Jew was the enemy. This has always been a prevailing feature of any form of dictatorship.... there has to be a perceived enemy for their own reign to work to take the attention away from themselves..... and the Jew representing the devil in religious mythologies was a very powerful & persuasive factor for a lot of people because religion prays on unquestionable moral stories portraying good and evil.

I'M ENCOURAGING THEM? The Jewish State encourages them through the so called Right of Return. You really do need to insert the Israel has the right to exist disc.

The rest of your post is just a poor Ziobot generated smear attempt to mask your own ignorance regarding the Jewish Right of Return. That psycho-babble doesn't even warrant acknowledgement.

The Law of Return, granting every Jew in the world the right to settle in Israel, was passed by the Knesset on July 5, 1950, and published in Sefer HaChukkim (Book of Laws) No. 51, p. 159. Two amendments were later added on to the Law of Return - one passed August 23, 1954, and the other passed March 10, 1970.

Right of Aliyah
Every Jew has the right to come to this country as an oleh**.

Oleh's visa
(a) Aliyah shall be by oleh's visa.
(b) An oleh's visa shall be granted to every Jew who has expressed his desire to settle in Israel, unless the Minister of Immigration is satisfied that the applicant:
(1) is engaged in an activity directed against the Jewish people; or
(2) is likely to endanger public health or the security of the State.

Oleh's certificate
(a) A Jew who has come to Israel and subsequent to his arrival has expressed his desire to settle in Israel may, while still in Israel, receive an oleh's certificate.
(b) The restrictions specified in section 2(b) shall apply also to the grant of an oleh's certificate, but a person shall not be regarded as endangering public health on account of an illness contracted after his arrival in Israel.

Residents and persons born in this country
Every Jew who has immigrated into this country before the coming into force of this Law, and every Jew who was born in this country, whether before or after the coming into force of this Law, shall be deemed to be a person who has come to this country as an oleh under this Law.

Implementation and regulations
The Minister of Immigration is charged with the implementation of this Law and may make regulations as to any matter relating to such implementation and also as to the grant of oleh's visas and oleh's certificates to minors up to the age of 18 years.

DAVID BEN-GURION
Prime Minister

MOSHE SHAPIRA
Minister of Immigration

YOSEF SPRINZAK
Acting President of the State
Chairman of the Knesset
www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Politics/Other_Law_Law_of_Return.html

The Jewish State actively encourages ALL Jews to move to Israel. Even US taxpayers funds were used by Israel to help fund a major inward immigration programme of Russian and ex-Soviet State Jews to Israel in the 90s and noughties.

There you go, my good deed for the day. Educating a ziobot in Israel's Right of Return for ALL Jews to move to the Jewish State.

Too easy? For what? Enabling a hasbara shill to make juvenile points like they're in the playground?

Are you totally ignorant of the Jewish right of return? Seems that way. If your comprehension skills are that poorly developed, which they most certainly appear to be, I'll spoon feed the point to you.

1. Jews are disliked in europe according to ADL survey.
2. The logical thing to do would be for Jews to then leave.
3. Jews have the right of return to Israel.
4. They should then move there because they have the right to do so sanctioned by the Israeli Knesset.

Surely you're not that thick to not understand this? Or are you?

You're making it too easy for me to point out you're talking shit.
I've followed your point very clearly.
You think that because some people don't like Jews then Jews should go and live somewhere you don't think they belong and haven't taken into consideration the implications.
Israel's ethnic cleansing
Perfect logic for somebody trapped in obsessive circular thought..... like I said.... easy pickings.

Hasbara 101 hey? Try and throw ones own shortcomings back on to the more knowledgeable opponent. :)

Android, we KNOW YOU were equating ethnic cleansing in Israel with the Jewish owned press official story of WWII. I pointed out the stupidity in your argument because Germany was wanting to cleanse Europe of the chancous pustule on humanity ... the invading Jews.

However, Israel on the other hand is the invader and wanting to ethnically cleanse the native inhabitants. The reverse scenario to Germany. I pointed out to you that your analogy would be valid if Palestine were cleansing the chancrous pustule on humanity ... the Jews. They are not .... though I'm sure the Jewish press would try and make it out that a few hand made rockets launched against a nuclear power was precisely that.

My argument re Jews returning to Israel had nothing to do with your illogical tripe. I simply pointed out that as the ADL survey has found Jews are deeply unpopular in Europe, they should just exercise their Right of Return and emigrate to Israel.

You though then showed you have no idea what the Right of Return even is.

You really do need to insert the Israel has the right to exist disc .... your Hasbara masters have done a pretty poor job with you. :)

1. The press is not owned by Jews & the press has nothing to do with the 'official story' of ww2. Stop deliberately making yourself sound completely stupid.
2. Jews were not 'invading' Germany.
3. Your idea that they are a 'cancerous pustule' clearly gives credence to the following post I made to which you replied 'are you 14?'
4. There was no stupidity in the comparison because both sides are killing each other based on their race. You have introduced other elements into the comparison to which I did not refer. I don't give a shit if you think it was ok for Germans to kill Jews because they were no longer allowed citizenship - obviously it wasn't - but your ability to completely condemn Jews for behaving in a racist way entirely destroys any modicum of common sense and decency you have, which is just about zilch. You're living in a paradox.

Keep digging.

This wasn't the comparison I was making. You're trying to argue that killing people based on their race is acceptable depending on the circumstances.

No I ignored your waffle about the right to return because it wasn't relevant. I was pointing out YOUR WORDS at what you have illogically concluded (as demonstrated) should happen to Jews even though you think they shouldn't live there.
It's one long cognitive dissonance.

What’s wrong with the ADL survey and how it could be improved

Posted by David Samel

Jackie Mason

There has been a lot of criticism of the ADL’s worldwide survey of anti-Semitism, and many of the obvious flaws in the study already have been discussed (or linked to)here. At the outset, the organization that commissioned the study is hardly a disinterested, unbiased observer. An ADL study on anti-Semitism should be greeted with the same skepticism as a tobacco industry study on the effects of second-hand smoke.

The ADL has multiple interests in exaggerating and even promoting the threat of anti-Semitism. First, ADL perpetually has its hand out for donations, and what better way to motivate donors than a screaming headline that there are one billion anti-Semitic adults on the planet? In fact it wasted no time in doing that here, as ADL’s home page trumpets the frightening results and offers visitors an easy way to “Help ADL Change the World” with a single click. Just have your VISA card ready. It is difficult to imagine that the survey was not planned, at least in part, as a fundraiser, with foreknowledge of a direct relationship between the quantification of the danger and the anticipated revenues.

Second, the ADL enhances its own prestige and even justifies its existence with the looming threat of anti-Semitism. This point was scathingly made a few years ago by an unlikely source, the comedian Jackie Mason, a steadfast pro-Israel voice who has been known to dabble unapologetically in anti-Palestinian racism.  Mason, for reasons of his own,  passionately defendedMel Gibson following his drunken anti-Semitic tirade. Gibson’s detractors were motivated, said Mason, by

jealousy and hate and contempt for a guy who’s doing too good. Also with this guy Abe Foxman, this head of the ADL. Another fake from top to bottom. I don’t talk about people, it’s not my nature, but he’s a total fake. Let’s be honest about it. Anybody who makes a life out of fighting racism in effect has to blow-up racism in order to justify himself and the job he has, otherwise he’d have to go to work. Otherwise he’d have to get up in the morning and get a real job.

Finally, the ADL makes no secret of its own pro-Israel agenda. Israel, like the ADL itself, feeds off the perception of worldwide anti-Semitism, which serves to portray the country as a necessary refuge for Jews from the threat of persecution.

The ADL’s motivation to exaggerate the incidence of anti-Semitism clearly influenced its design of the survey. It used as its cutoff the arbitrary rule that agreement with 6 out of 11 statements regarding Jews makes on an anti-Semite. Several of the statements arguably have little or nothing to do with anti-Semitism, or at least a respondent could easily agree with them without harboring an actual bias against Jews. Take “Jews think they are better than other people.” Is it unreasonable to assume that Jewish doctrinal belief of being chosen by God is equivalent to a feeling of superiority? But even more basically, some might have agreed with that question because they believe that almost every group thinks they are better than other people. Don’t Americans generally feel superior to other people? Certainly most Sean Hannity listeners do. Don’t many people think the French think they are better than other people? What if someone concludes that all groups of people, including Jews, think they’re special? There is plenty of evidence of this universal tendency of self-promotion. Is that anti-Semitic?

Then there is “Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust.” The use of the word “still” strongly implies that at some time in the past, Jews did talk too much about the Holocaust, and the question simply asks if they are continuing to do so.  Such wording is both suggestive and downright weird.  And what about philo-Semitic people who think that Jews should focus more on their glorious present and boundless future, rather than dwell on the catastrophes of the past? Why should they be suspected of anti-Semitism for such views?

At least two of the statements are so similar as to be almost duplicative – “Jews have too much power in the business world.” and “Jews have too much power in international financial markets” – with the expected result that almost every respondent who agreed with one would agree with the other as well.

Perhaps most problematical is the statement “People hate Jews because of the way Jews behave.” Since a large number of respondents reported never having met a Jew, and no doubt many others have had very limited interactions with Jews, it stands to reason that many respondents based their views of Jews on Israeli behavior. Wouldn’t most people’s views of the Russian, Japanese, and Peruvian people depend to a large extent on their views of the behavior of Russia, Japan and Peru? Yet the ADL’s inclusion of this statement as a barometer of anti-Semitism clearly presumes that hostility toward Jews must be unrelated to Israel’s behavior toward Palestinians, and it is irrationally anti-Semitic to believe otherwise. What about a Filipino or Bolivian who identifies Jewish people with Israel, as Israel itself does (!), and blames “Jews” for the acts committed by Israel? In fact, even one who is generally pro-Israel but believes that other people unfairly hate Jews because of Israel’s behavior would agree with the statement as crafted by the ADL! That is not even anti-Israel, much less anti-Jewish.

Most if not all of the ADL’s eleven supposedly anti-Semitic statements are vulnerable to similar criticism. But even if the ADL had the best of intentions to arrive at objectively accurate results, which was certainly not the case, its methodology is suspect. The use of the word “Jews,” without clarifying if it was meant to include all, most, or some Jews, no doubt would have been interpreted very differently by different people. Indeed, there is no general consensus of who is a Jew. I consider myself to be Jewish, though I am an atheist; many Israeli Jews are atheists as well. Yet some might quite reasonably require some actual religious belief to qualify as a Jew. I have no doubt that some religious Jews would scoff at the notion that I am a Jew.

Keep in mind that the ADL did not conduct a single poll with 53,000 respondents, but 101 independent polls in separate countries. Only three – China, India and the US – had a sample size of 1000 respondents, and the remainder had between 500 and 600 respondents. Can the ADL even pretend that it employed rigorous scientific polling methods in each of these countries? The various polling methods employed in different countries yielded head-scratching results. For example, Laos weighed in with a ridiculously low figure of 0.2% anti-Semitism, while nearby Thailand recorded 13% (still low but 65 times Laos’s figure) and Malaysia a whopping 61%. Is there really such a pronounced Laotian affinity for Jews? South Korea weighs in 53% and Japan at 23%; Tanzania at 12 and Kenya at 35. Belgium has a 27% rating, while the Netherlands next door is only 5%.
To make matters worse, the ADL commissioned a similar, though not identical, survey of European countries in 2009. At that time, France had a modest score of 20% while neighboring Spain was more than double at 48%. In the new survey, Spain dropped to 29% while France now exceeds it at 37%. What happened over the last five years to cause these two countries to shift so dramatically in opposite directions?

These improbable discrepancies indicate a large degree of sloppiness, and ADL’s self-serving claim of being accurate within +/- 4.4% is absurd. Yet the ADL extrapolates from these unreliable results of 53,000 respondents that there are 1.09 billion adult anti-Semites in the world, as if that number has the slightest credence.

It’s not that I think that anti-Semitism is a bogus phenomenon unworthy of investigation and analysis. It’s just that the ADL went to great lengths to construct a complicated survey with rather arbitrary rules governing who is and is not an anti-Semite, and the results are wholly unpersuasive. So let me offer a much better and simpler way to quantify the scope of worldwide hatred of Jews. Instead of crafting 11 statements that are vulnerable to different interpretations, many of which are consistent with perfectly innocent rather than truly anti-Semitic views, the ADL could have just gone with one single question:

Do you believe that Jewish and non-Jewish citizens of every country in the world, including yours, should be guaranteed fully equal rights under the law?

Such a poll might not delve into the gray areas the ADL believes may constitute a more subtle form of anti-Semitism, but it would accurately gauge public opinion on the single most important and practical question: Are Jews equal to everyone else?

There are reasons the ADL did not opt for this simple solution. For one, the percentage of anti-Semitism in every polled country (with the exception of Laos – how low could they possibly go?) would decrease if that were the question posed, thereby undermining the ADL’s hope to achieve maximum results.

Much worse would be the results if that question were posed to Israelis as well as the rest of the world. There is no doubt that in Israel, where equality is seen as tantamount to “destruction” and “delegitimization” of the Jewish State, and denial of the Jewish people’s so-called “right to self-determination,” the percentage of “no” votes probably would be the highest in the world. How ironic!

Mate .... stop speaking bullshit. I said nothing of the sort. So don't try and smear me with your hasbara trained bullshit.

You lot always resort to such Talmudic behavior when you've been shown to have made illogical nonsensical and trite posts because you're clueless about the subject matter being discussed.

Don't they ever change your programming at hasbara school?

It's true what others say, you sound like a scratched vinyl disc ....disc....disc....disc....disc....disc....disc ..........................
and I admire those who are still showing loads of patience and willingness to discuss with you
just as if you were a normal forum member.
"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe
