The war on anti-Semitism gains momentum, by Philip Giraldi

It has often been observed how Jewish organizations in the United States and Western Europe exploit their alleged perpetual victim status to excuse their own ethnocentric manipulations while providing cover for Israeli war crimes. What they call the “Holocaust” is, of course, central to the effort, complete with a standard narrative that has more holes in it than a slice of Swiss cheese. To suit their purposes, Jewish suffering has to be unique, which in the past has led to successful efforts to deny the reality of other genocides, including those of Armenia / Turkey in WWI and, more recently, Rwanda. Ironically, the Israelis themselves, without any shame, have engaged in something akin to genocide against the Palestinians, described by the victims as the Nakba, beginning in 1948, followed by the full occupation of Palestinian and Syrian lands after 1967 and the current one. increased efforts to increase Arab suffering and expel them from their homes.

As the number of outspoken Zionists in the Western government and media increases, efforts to use the legal system to silence critics have also become more common. In several European countries, challenging the Holocaust narrative is a crime punishable by punitive fines and even prison terms. Efforts to deviate even slightly from the accepted story of what happened in 1939-45 and its aftermath produce immediate virulent responses from Jewish groups and Israeli officials, as well as representatives of countries that have submitted to the Zionist yoke, including the United States. Poland is currently under pressure because your parliament has passed a statute of limitations on Jewish / Israeli demands for restitution of property transferred or confiscated during the war. As the war ended more than 75 years ago, the Polish desire to end ongoing arbitration would seem reasonable, but it is not so for Israeli and Jewish-American groups who want to keep cash and property flowing for eternity. Some advocates of the immutability of Jewish suffering have actually argued that the damage inflicted on Jews could be heritable, presumably in one’s DNA, requiring ongoing compensation for future generations.

Given the fact that Israel’s recent fierce assault on Gaza visibly changed the perceptions of some ardent supporters of the Jewish state, there has been intense damage control emanating from the Zionists and their friends. Part of the counterattack has consisted of inflating media accounts that previously would not have seen the light of day to remind readers and viewers of Jewish suffering. There is also the impression that movie streaming services have presented a much larger number of films related to the Holocaust and Israel than usual, which is not surprising given the predominant ethnicity of the entertainment industry.

Two recent stories focus on Republican lawmakers who used references to the Holocaust in support to emphasize their opposition to mandatory COVID vaccinations. The media has been criticizing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia for compare vaccine mandates to the holocaust and the so-called “golden stars” that the Jews were supposed to wear. He later apologized after completing his mandatory visit to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC The most recent story involved Washington State Representative Jim Walsh, who sported a yellow Star of David and then explained himself by saying, “It’s an echo of history. In the current context, we are all Jews. “The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) demanded an immediate apology and complained that” During these difficult times of increasing anti-Semitism, elected officials continue to deepen the pain through ignorant analogies of the Holocaust with the COVID-19 health guidelines … “

The history of suffering is inevitably backed up by claims of anti-Semitism to smear opponents, applied as necessary, along with regular reports in the mainstream media to maintain the impression that anti-Semitism is on the rise in the United States and elsewhere. . It is seldom pointed out that criticism of Israel for its behavior often generates hostility towards Jews.

Official Washington is, of course, on the ball when it comes to making things clear how much he loves Israel and all things Jewish. The 21st of JuneS t, the Senate approved by voice vote a bipartisan resolution condemning the recent rise in anti-Semitism in the United States and around the world. The Senate, in fact, now has a bipartisan fight against “anti-Semitism” workgroup It consists of a majority of 56 members and there is a similar organization in the House of Representatives. Senator Jacky Rosen of Nevada, who sponsored the bill, explained how “Recently, we have seen attacks on Jewish communities and Jewish-owned businesses, foreign leaders who have invoked anti-Semitic conspiracies, and elected officials that lessen the horrors that Jews endured during the Holocaust. No problem threatens Jewish communities more than the alarming rise in anti-Semitism and violent extremism. “

Rosen, of course, has never deplored Israeli behavior, even when Jerusalem deliberately attacks and kills dozens of children. But he does see it as growing anti-Semitism when someone on a college campus criticizes Israel or makes a derogatory comment to a Jewish student. All of these incidents contribute to ADL statistics showing the rise in anti-Semitism. The resolution recommends that the White House take steps to “advance accurate Holocaust education and counter Holocaust denial and distortion through the full implementation of the Education Never Again Act, and to ensure the physical safety of Jewish institutions and organizations. “In fact, 19 states currently require Holocaust education, while Jewish institutions already get more than 95% of discretionary funding from the Department of Homeland Security, something that the attractive Mrs. Rosen might not know.

But it is the White House that is taking the lead in protecting both Israel and America’s Jewish “minority” (sic). President Joe Biden met with retirement of Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on June 27th to discuss the Iranian threat and Israel’s defense “needs,” presumably beyond the nearly $ 5 billion it already has in preparation for this year. At the meeting, Biden renewed his commitment to provide unconditional support to the Jewish state, which again asserted that it has the “right to defend itself.” Presumably that includes shooting teenagers throwing rocks.

The White House has also distanced itself from progressive congressmen seeking to soften the relationship between the United States and Israel. Press Secretary Jen Psaki made it very clear that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is comparing the United States and Israel to some suspected terrorist groups how unacceptable. Psaki added that to speak negatively about a “close ally” would be “false and unacceptable,” apparently without knowing that Israel is not, in fact, technically speaking an ally, as that status requires reciprocity.

After another strong exchange with critics, a spokesman for the American Jewish Committee Omar denounced because his “… comments are based on classic anti-Semitic themes about the Jewish clan, the notion that Jews only take care of themselves.” I will let the reader judge that.

Biden also put the icing on the cake on what we might call the problem of anti-Semitism. It approved a decision made by the Donald Trump Administration in 2018 that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Job definition Anti-Semitism, which includes criticism of Israel, is the US government’s “gold standard” for defining the problem. The Office of Legislative Affairs was more expansive on the issue, writing that “The Department agrees that it is crucial that governments and the public are able to recognize anti-Semitism in its many forms, traditional and contemporary, so that we can call hate by his own name and take effective action. “

The Biden Administration also promised not to limit freedom of speech on the issue before launching another zinger: “This, however, does not mean that we let anti-Semitic speech and other forms of hate speech go unchallenged.” That means that any American who criticizes Israel or the political activities of Jewish groups is potentially viewed by the US government as an anti-Semite and a hater who will be “challenged” by the Justice Department. It also implies that he or she could be one of the extremists that the Merrick Garland Justice Department is trying to identify and prosecute under the looming new legislation. I’d bet the new laws will specifically include anti-Semitism as part of the “how to identify an extremist” language, meaning that Biden will have gone beyond even Trump in his reverence for Jewish and Israeli interests. And I’m sure that once the principle is established that there is something particularly important in offending Jews, there will be more to come, possibly much more.
