After a recent speech I made, some took issue with my comparing the antisemitic threat of anti-Zionist orgs, ie @NationalSJP, to that posed by far-right extremist orgs. In a recent @TimesofIsrael piece, I explain how & why anti-Zionism is #antisemitism. 🧵blogs.timesofisrael.com/you-dont-need-…
To be fair, the threats of the far-left & extreme-right are very different. As @ADL's documented for yrs, far-right extremism is a singularly lethal threat to the Jewish community, other marginalized communities, & to America. But the anti-Zionist far-left is also a major issue.
First, let's define our terms. #Zionism = belief that the Jewish people have the right to self-determination & statehood in their ancestral homeland. The yearning to return to Zion (the biblical term for Israel) has been central to Judaism and Jewish identity for 1000s of years.

@GEICO, by now you've heard a lot of people are upset that you gave a platform to Linda Sarsour. Here's a summary of her long track record of spreading hate:
Sarsour has close ties to the Nation of Islam (NOI), a racist, #antisemitic & homophobic hate group, according to @splcenter. Sarsour pays NOI members to act as her security detail & embraces their hateful leader Louis Farrakhan.

Putin’s false accusation that Ukraine has a Nazi regime is just the latest example of #RussianPropaganda that involves #antisemitism or Holocaust distortion, often in the form of unfounded Nazi comparisons. A thread:
The most famous Russian #antisemitic propaganda is the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a forgery first disseminated in Russia in 1903, which blames a secret cabal of Jews for much of the world’s problems.

Soviet intelligence agents conducted a campaign of covert swastika painting in West Germany in 1959-1960 to support Soviet propaganda that West Germany remained a Nazi state, while the Soviet Union was the true victor over #Nazism.

Here's the statement by the list of the usual #antisemitic leftist suspects & their #ISlamist cohorts like @CAIRNational, once again perpetuating the lie that #ISrael is an #apartheid state. When was the last time any member of this group spoke to the #Islamists in the #Knesset?
1. The same coalition consisting of #MuslimBrotherhood fronts like @CAIRNational and leftist #antisemitic groups, calling on Congress to reject #AbrahamAccords starts its statement with an attack on #Morocco's sovereignty over Sahara & drags in the war in #Yemen. Image
2. #Islamists, #leftists, and pro-#Iran elements are working together not only to undermine #AbrahamAccords, not only to destroy US relationship with #Morocco, not only to undermine the authority of HM King Mohammed VI...

In its #antisemitic 211 page report, @amnesty openly calls for Israel to be dismantled:

"This system of apartheid originated with the creation of Israel in May 1948....Dismantling this cruel system of apartheid is essential for the millions of Palestinians...."
Also worth noting, @amnesty refers to Hamas as a "political party" and barely -- if at all -- mentions Palestinian terror. The word "terror" appears a mere 3 times, and not to refer to Palestinians.
Another gem:

"Almost all of Israel’s institutions are involved in... apartheid against Palestinians... and against Palestinian refugees and their descendants outside the territory"

In other words, any Palestinian living anywhere on the planet also suffers from Israeli apartheid

Thread: How #Qatar rigged the #AbrahamAccords to fail
1. In a previous thread, I raised questions about the stalemate & possible deterioration in #Morocco-#Israel-US relations after what seemed to be a promising start.
2. I posited that a group of greedy, corrupt, and incompetent executors from #Israel & the US and their #Moroccan cronies are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In particular, I pointed to the dubious role of Jared Kushner's group & their counterparts.
3. But there's much more to the story than meets the eye. #AbrahamAccords was a great idea, but when left in the hands of crooks & unscrupulous pawns of foreign regimes, it was designed to fail and ended up being nothing more than a pricey scam attracting chiefly con artists.

Wait. The Oregon father’s name is really SCHMECK? The writers outdid themselves on this episode.
Jared Schmeck's employer appears to be his father's company, Winema Electric in Oregon

1. Telling someone to Go F yourself is not "Christian values"

2. Joking? Jared should tell someone Go F yourself in a bar

3. Has Jared apologized to President Biden?

4. Consequence Culture
"The phrase 'Let’s Go, Brandon' has become a conservative dig at the Democratic president, a code for “F--- Joe Biden”

Jared Schmeck must apologize to President Biden. Actions have consequences.

The DGH conspiracy theory that Savarkar was a Nazi seems to be rejected by Israel. Pro Palestine and Kashmiri separatists using blue hooked cross, chanting ethnic cleansing slogans and remaking Hitler as Hindutva has only exposed their #antiSemitic and #Hinduphobic ideology.

A🧵about @MustReadAlaska , Suzanne Downing (@Downing907), and accountability.
I know MRAK regularly allows commentary and dog-whistles containing misinfo, racism (esp against AK Natives), homophobia, survivor blaming, and the like
But today the topic is #Antisemitism
#akleg 1/16
We all know that dozens of anti-mask protesters showed up this week to the Anchorage Assembly wearing Yellow Stars of David. This was the culmination of Antisemitism that has been brewing nationwide for years, but...
#akleg 2/16
...locally has been stoked by "leaders" like @GovDunleavy who at a press conference over a month ago compared Covid mitigation measures to "Europe in the 30s"-- a poorly veiled attempt to analogize health measures to the Holocaust. This is anti-Semitic, just ask @ADL

#REVEALED: Many @dghconference speakers previously promoted #AntiSemitic petition.

@abhashankar1 reports #DGH speakers endorsed a statement saying:
-"Zionist Israel is the only state in the world that is NOT a state of its own citizens"
-Israel is an "inherently racist state"
Patwardhan, Sundar & Krishnan signed petition calling on India to join "socialist" Cuba & Venenzuela in "de-recognizing" & sanctioning Israel, calling it a "Zionist apartheid state."

Krishnan promoted PFLP that US designates a foreign terrorist org (FTO)

Criticism of India & Israel is fair game. But the collapsing of that criticism into grossly #AntiSemitic & #Hinduphobic tropes by radical activists is outrageous and must be condemned.

Instead, #DGH platforms the activists at an event supported by depts at dozens of schools.

More #Hypocrisy: 20+ years of hate and lies from @hrw @KenRoth @goldsteinricky etc targeting #Israel have fueled unprecedented & brutal #antisemitic attacks. Not legitimate criticism, but campaigns to destroy Jewish self-determination, exploiting the facade of #HumanRights
Pretending they did not know that @HRW-led hate campaigns would fuel #antisemitic attacks won't cut after 20+ years. @KenRoth and the fellow Israel eliminationists that he employs know exactly what they are doing.
@hrw @KenRoth and in the process of allying with top #antisemites as they play out personal issues with Jewish self-determination and sovereign equality (Israel), Roth, Goldstein and friends have destroyed the integrity of #HumanRights -- collateral damage.

The WCC @Oikoumene added to the vile antisemitism of the 2001 UN Durban conference -- an anti-racist event hijacked for hate. Will they repeat this immoral behavior at the Durban +20 "commemoration"? @dextervanzile

David Matas on @Oikoumene at Durban 1: "the #WCC proposed the deletion from the text on #antisemitism the paragraph protesting anti-Zionism. [Vote...] without giving the Jewish Caucus, or, indeed, anyone, an opportunity to speak to it.

More 21st century woke #antisemitism insanity... the Philadelphia Israeli food truck incident con't. (BTW, even if an agreement on "balancing" an Israeli and Palestinian trucks actually exists, it would be inherently and blatantly discriminatory.)

THREAD:

@JFedinPhilly, @phillyjcrc and @ADL are deeply disturbed that the #Israeli cuisine food truck Moshava was removed from the A Taste of Home event organized by Eat Up the Borders at Sunflower Philly today.

1/5
We have spoken with the event organizers and expressed that we unequivocally disagree with their decision. We do understand that threats to the organizers were made, and we understand the fear and confusion that comes when your community faces that intimidation.

2/5
The vile #antisemitic rhetoric and threats of violence lobbied at the organizers was utterly despicable.
This event was planned to celebrate diversity, and to see individuals on social media respond with open prejudice and anti-Jewish hate was shameful and deeply upsetting.

The first #Durban conference, with its #Antisemitic anti-Zionist 'Durban Declaration' keeps regenerating itself, like a virus
Sept '21 will see the @UN hosting #DurbanIV, which will double down on its '#Zionism-is-racism' slander, giving oxygen to Antisemitic anti-#Zionists
2/
The original Durban Conference was intended as a conference against racism, but quickly revealed itself as a grotesque farce rife with #Antisemitic anti-#Zionism.

It has remained so to this day, promulgated by those who simply want a world without its only Jewish state.

The UK pulled out of Durban III in 2011 because of the grotesque Antisemitic-anti-Zionism

The UK is a self-declared friend of Israel 🇮🇱

The UK's @BorisJohnson must stand up for its friend, 🇮🇱, & against the #Jew-hate now synonymous with the #Durban conferences & Declaration

We are being told that we should separate Jewish people from #Jewish state of #Israel. The same people refuse to separate Muslims from Al Quida, ISIS, etc. who refuse to separate #Palestinians from #Hamas, Islamic Jihad, or separate progressive #left from China, Russia, et
> Their argument for the above is, all Muslims have same religion & sympathise with ISIS, Al-Quida objectives. They say #Palestinians elected #Hamas so they're all terrorists. They call left #Antisemitic for supporting #Palestinian struggle & opposing Israeli #apartheid system
> practiced in Israel & occupied territories, siege of #Gaza, continuous encroachment on Palestinian land, houses & religious sites by fundamentalist/ extremist Western #settlers. Furthermore, they dislike Left's opposition to sanctions on #Iran as it hurts ordinary people.

1/8 Hell yeah, let’s redefine #antisemitism in such a way that everything not mentioning explicit #Jews or compares #Israel with the worlds worst atrocities is NOT #antisemitic.

Ripping The Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism (JDA) apart.

2/8 -12: Criticizing or opposing Zionism as a form of nationalism. Sure. Where is the bond between #Judaism & #Zionism? Forgotten and completely whipped of the table. I even suspect that the eternal bond between #Jews and #Israel is completely ignored.
3/8 -13: Racial discrimination. Settler-colonialism. Apartheid.
Nice sum-up. This implies that all 3 occur in #Israel and is an open house for the #Jew hating bunch.

Racial discrimination. Any country where it’s not? Hint – black face a worldwide phenomenon. BLM movement?

1/15 Self-loathing (self-hating) #Jews and the existence of #Israel. After WW2 a lot of #Jewish survivors denied their #Jewishness all together. Converted to Protestantism, became hardcore socialists or even communists. Pretending to by one of the many, instead one of the few.
2/15 Examples in my little family. Another hiding place was to marry non-Jews. Male Jew & non-Jewish woman broke the bloodline. Female #Jew & non-Jewish male was a reason to not follow Jewish traditions. No Brit Milah, no Bar/Bat Mitswah, nada. Also examples in my little family.
3/15 Remember this was in the early 1950/60’s and the man of the house decided most. The deeper thought, no, the huge fear that something like the #Holocaust could happen again was the reason for this. Don’t show the outside world you’re a #Jew, you could be round up next time.

When critiquing Ken Loach for anti-Semitism, please bear in mind:

Stephen Pollard of @JewishChron does not regard anyone in or allied to the Conservative party as an anti-Semite, no matter what they say about Jewish people. /1
Stephen Pollard has never criticised Boris Johnson for denying the traditional peerage to the first Jewish Speaker of the House of Commons. (Johnson also denied the traditional peerage to the first black Archbishop of York.) /2
Neither Stephen Pollard nor @JewishChron ever criticised Jacob Rees-Mogg for referring to Jewish MPs as "members of the Illuminati". (Nor, of course, did Rees-Mogg experience any penalty for this #antiSemitic trope.) /3

In addition to an obsession with #QAnon, @RepMTG promotes concepts of an “unholy alliance of leftists, capitalists and Zionist supremacists.” No matter when she shared the video, this is raw #antisemitism. It has no place in Congress or anywhere else.
Anyone who espouses #antisemitic, hateful views should not be put on Congressional committees. Back in October, I wrote to @SpeakerPelosi & @GOPLeader asking Congress to decline to assign QAnon adherents from Congressional committees.
On Monday, I wrote @GOPLeader again urging him to exclude @mtgreenee from Conference membership & House Committee assignments. Yesterday, he refused. @GOPLeader, you stripped @SteveKingIA of his committee positions, you should do it for @mtgreenee as well.
