Modern Anti-Semitism

Post by DRSB » Sun Dec 02, 2018 6:21 am

--- is looming larger than ever in the last 60 years! Yes, in Manhattan!
Jewish Professor Finds Swastikas Spray-Painted in Office at Columbia

Two swastikas and an anti-Semitic slur were spray-painted Wednesday on the walls of a Jewish professor’s office at Columbia University, the latest in a surge of anti-Semitic incidents in New York this year.

The office belongs to Elizabeth Midlarsky, 77, who has written about the Holocaust and has been a repeated target of anti-Semitic vitriol while working as a psychology and education professor at the university’s Teachers College in Manhattan.

The Police Department said it was investigating the vandalism — the swastikas and the word “Yid” were scrawled in bright red in the entryway to the office — as a hate crime.
...
According to Police Department statistics, there have been 168 reported incidents of anti-Semitic crimes in New York so far this year, up from 136 reports over the same period in 2017. The total number of reported hate crimes in the city has also risen since last year.

That's crazy. It's a student though right? Or was she was targeted by a hate group?

The vandalism comes amid a rise in anti-Semitic crimes that have unsettled a city long at the heart of American Jewish identity. Just weeks ago, a Brooklyn synagogue was defaced with graffiti, including the phrase “Die Jew Rats,” on the same day that two swastikas were found spray-painted on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Days before those incidents, 11 people were killed at a Pittsburgh synagogue by a gunman shouting anti-Semitic slurs.

Graffiti being found inside “somebody’s intimate space like that was very unique,” Mr. Bernstein said, adding that “this is the first that I can recall ‘Yid’ being used in an anti-Semitic vandalism incident.” (The word “Yid” is derived from a Yiddish word for “Jew,” he said, but it is sometimes used as an offensive epithet.)

Law enforcement officials would not comment on whether they had a suspect or how the perpetrator entered Ms. Midlarsky’s office. Buildings on the Teachers College campus require identification for entry, which includes government-issued photo IDs and ID cards provided by affiliated Columbia schools.

Thomas Bailey, the president of the Teachers College, said in a written statement that the school was working with the police to investigate the vandalism.

“We are outraged and horrified by this act of aggression and use of this vile anti-Semitic symbol against a valued member of our community,” he said.

Ms. Midlarsky’s office was also vandalized in 2007, when a swastika was spray-painted on the door. She told The Times then that she had been the target of anti-Semitism three times in less than a month, having also received multiple offensive fliers in her mailbox.

She was also sent an image of a swastika in the mail in 2009, according to a CNN report.

The police said they did not have information about the previous episodes, nor did they know whether they were connected to the graffiti found Wednesday.

I've said this before in other threads, but to me, there are 2 completely different sources of anti-Jewish sentiment. One is traditional European right wing/Nazi, the other is fundamentalist Islam. To me, the irony is that most right wing nationalist groups, tinged with anti-Jewish sentiment, have a significant anti-muslim component. The enemy of my enemy is still my fucking enemy, it appears... :tea:

Perhaps there is a third component - some leftist groups with a strong anti-Zionist, pro-Palestinian ethos have drifted into anti-semitism, almost by accident. Are you listening, British Labor Party?

But the States are not particularly known for fundamentalist Islam and rather for fundamentalist Christianity. 70% of the US population is Christian and half of them are fundamentalists.

Only in the minds of Fundamentalist Extreme Zionists, who see any protest against Israel as being anti-Semitic.

That's true, but it appears that some anti-zionists have edged over a line into real anti-semitism, from what I've read in the past. Perhaps more savvy people could find actual examples...

In Russia, they have a long tradition of discriminating against Jews until they distinguish themselves in some way at which point they become the Great Russian Mathematician or or the Great Russian Constructor.
A funny settling of the scores here, I google-translated it for you. :ab:
Russia is a Orthodox, Christian country. Stop, my dear brothers, short turn away, glorious knights! Let's go on the Hamburg score, in an adult, no offense ...

1. Did you happen to have not recorded Jesus in Russian? It was in Israel. And the Jews lived there. And the Virgin Mary Most Holy was Jewish. And Jesus, the Son of God, according to his mother, was a Jew. Or that someone did not know? John the Baptist, who blessed the first holy baptism, was a Jew. And all four authors of the Gospels were Jews. And all twelve apostles. There is no need to speak at all about King Solomon the wise and his father David the Psalmist.

Have Jews crucified Christ? And they took him down from the cross, and mourned, and carried his teaching around the world, and gave for his life — the eleven apostles of
twelve - who? Chinese? Too the Jews, you know.

The Romans had their own religion, but they did not hear about the Russians then. Strictly speaking, a deeply religious Jew, Jesus conducted a great reformation
By that time, Judasism became stagnant and split. Extremely simplified the rite and opened the reformed form of religion for all comers and aspirants of the soul.

2. The original gods of the Eastern Slavs - Perun, Yarilo, Dazhbog - were canceled and banned after the baptism of Russia by the decision of Kiev
prince of the throne. Like pagan. So the Holy Icons of the Mother of God depict you know who and what nationality. Laws
human psychology is such that if a fact cannot be undone, then the perpetrator of the very fact “something undesirable” you want to beat hard.

3. Alphabet - from ancient Greek Alpha, Beta - the first two letters of the Greek alphabet. And they, in turn, from the Hebrew Aleph,
Beit - which means: House in Hebrew. You see, when the Jews wrote the first books of the Bible, the Greeks were still illiterate. Creators of the whole
Mediterranean culture they became somewhat later. A letter was taken from the Jews. Such a thing.

Gets the first grader Alphabet - and this is a Zionist sabotage: Yes? And to Russia this infection was brought, as is well known, by Cyril and Methodius. So
that, having read another true and passionate essay of the Grateful Russian patriot about world Jewish divination, send curses to those whose writing you use and which all great Russian literature is written.

4. The Jewish culture is to keep the spirit and the covenant of God, the One, the Most High, and Severe. Hellish and impatient Jewish God, and He does not forgive
weaknesses and retreats to the children of your elect. Make or die. This formula was minted in the best of times by the rulers of the world - the British. Here is the whole essence of Jewish culture is embedded in the same motto from the beginning. Who was in Israel - saw the desert scorched by the sun: the people’s homeland. Here for her one and a half thousand years the Jews fought with all who were there and
who came before the Romans kicked them out, the first fighters of the world ... And there were decades, and rebellions broke out, and refused to surrender
besieged Masada, and in the final assault, the defenders of the fortress smashed each other and themselves with swords, in order to die free men on the last piece of their free land. And the last words of the commander of the fortress were: "In fire and blood Judea died, in fire and blood Judea will be reborn!". This is what happened. You can learn, gentlemen, patriots. But where are you?

5. If Mendelssohn’s march sounded at your wedding - well, so you got married to the music of a Jew. If on May 9 you listen to this Victory Day, smelt gunpowder! .. - well, the author, David Tukhmanov, is not an Aryan. All of this Jewish jazz with Glen Miller, Benny Goodman and Leonid Utesov we will give, and the Dark Night will do without Bernes. But Katyusha! - which the country sang, and the Germans, and allies, and the whole world! Zhidovina Matvey Blanter came up with. There was another Katyusha. The same legendary one, remember all the newsreels, the Guards rocket mortar, it was made: Schwartz, Slopimer, Gantmakher, Levin, Shore — that was the design team doing!
MiG fighters - guess two times, Mikoyan and Gurevich - who is Armenian and who is Jewish. About missiles and atomic bombs we will not.

6. Who was the Treper? The great intelligence officer of the Second World War. Who was Manevich? Etienne, Earth, on demand? The great intelligence officer of the Second World War. And Yankel Chernyak, the prototype of Stirlitz? In December 1994, the Chief of the General Staff and the Chief of the GRU at the bed of Yankel in a coma handed his wife the Golden Star of the Hero of Russia. The legendary intelligence officer never found out about his first and only reward. Who was Arnold Deutsch? The Great Scout, the Cambridge Five is his recruitment. I can still understand that the Jews
Nostradamus and Kirk Douglas. But how did the Hungarian Jew Ditmar Rosenthal for so many years in the USSR have been the chief specialist in Russian
spelling ?!

7. Once a Jewish child finds out that he is Jewish. This means that there is no just salvation from mockery and massacre. He is not Russian.
Justice does not exist for him. And in order to somehow compensate for his irreparable misfortune, one must do something beyond what

expect from everyone. A Jew from early childhood has more reason to be thoughtful. More
obstacles. And the worldview is formed: If you want to achieve something, you have to think about how to get around prohibitions, how to find a solution. You have to work hard, as long as you like, until you reach it. You should do more than others to be allowed to - maybe! - become flush. And there is no one to complain. This is how the world works. If life does not turn a Jew into a lackey - she turns him into a gladiator.
Lackeys many, very many. Slavery begets slaves. But the gladiators - in plain sight, are striking. This is how the components of success are formed: stubbornness, perseverance, diligence, thoughtfulness, patience, ingenuity, cunning and intelligence. Plus, the innate temperament of the southern people, the love of knowledge: after all, for thousands of years in a row the Jews were all the literate and reading people of the Book.
Which of the nations still in world history?
8.… .Life is a good educating officer, and there are many slaughtered Jews. It represents you the tenth. When you envy his success - not
forget to envy humiliation, beatings and stubbornness.

Cunning is the strength of the weak. When both direct force and law and the sympathies of others are not on your side, well, you have to think about
on the sly to achieve his. This is the way combinatorial mind, polyvariant thinking develops.

WHAT AT LESSER FAVORABLE CONDITIONS YOU ARE DELIVERED FROM THE INITIAL - THE MORE YOU
TO GET AT THE END, DEVELOPING THE MIND AND WILL TO OVERCOME OBSTACLES ...

This people should be beaten, chased, restricted, humiliated, that is, put in a permanent solution to the problem of survival and self-preservation.
Thus, among other nations, dispersed Jewry finds itself in the position of man among animals - oh no! I do not put the Jews above
others! and no people do not put below the Jews! I say this only in the sense that ... PUSHING THE JEW - YOU ONLY TRAIN IT. Persecution made the Jews tenacious and intelligent.

10. Jews seize the media. Cinema, television, journalism, pop. This observation was made in the nineteenth century. My dears Here is humiliated
child. They are beating him, and a few on one, the fights are dishonest - not a clash, but just a beat. He has long experienced every such injustice and humiliation. And at the same time - alone - utters internal monologues and dialogues! He trains his verbal apparatus, his imagination - yes, how! with passion! on adrenaline! experiencing the recent! at the tender age of maturation, when hormones begin to beat the fountain! And the comfort is calm, lonely entertainment (of former times) - to read a book, to forget with captain Blood.
So - so! - people grow up loving and able to speak, represent, hang up noodles on their ears to people. He is to this, the occupation with all his life is trained and directed - imprisoned for this.

A dreamy boy, timid and weak, in the imagination commands the crowds and makes speeches. Month says, five years says! And from this school of internal self-teaching hatch TV presenters and filmmakers. If a person wants, but he is humiliated, he dreams. And if he dreams, then for some it turns out in life.

11. At the time when the burden of whites was the civilization of the world of savages, and Old England was ruled by the Old Widow Victoria, the son of a petty
of the colonial official and the first poet of the world, Rudyard Kipling, wrote: “And you will appreciate the pride of the Others, - having assessed it completely!”

12. BEATING A LIQUID IS EASIER THAN SAVING RUSSIA.
The enemy is the only justification for their failure. Rate the degree of schizophrenia: nothing that Islamic terrorists kill Russians - but they also kill Jews, but that's good! Already at home in Moscow, blown up, already Arab volunteers among the corpses of Chechen militants have been identified - and our patriots are sending greetings and support to Arab terrorists who are kind to us, wet the Jews.

13. For decades, tiny Israel opposes an Islamic environment.
exceeding it hundreds of times (!) in number and territory. Frankly declaring the purpose of the destruction of Israel - on the map to erase, cut out people, wash everything in the sea with blood! - The Islamic environment lost all wars. The first war began with the attacks of all five Arab states surrounding Israel, on the day
proclaiming it as a state in the UN. The last one today is in 1982 in Lebanon, when the Jews shot down 96 Syrian (?) MiGs,
without losing a single of his "Phantom".

And in 1973, after a detailed Soviet air reconnaissance, Egypt and Syria simultaneously attacked Israel by many times superior forces and a few days later the UN categorically banned Jews from entering Cairo, and the USSR declared that if they approached Damascus, we would land side of Syria.

And we have not been able to deal with tiny Chechnya for ten years, where 120,000 civilians died, of which the majority of Russians are
company Maybe invite to the Caucasus brigade Golani from Israel, which in the 73rd it burned the Syrian armored forces in the amount of
thousands of units and drove the Syrian army?

14. Tiny Israel, standing in a scorched desert, in 3 years accepted 3,000,000 people - doubled its own population! With queues and difficulties - but all the former impoverished Soviet citizens received money for the first six months and for furnishing (up to $ 10,000), some kind of housing, language courses, some kind of work. No one! - did not remain without a roof, without money - immediately! - without things for the first time, without medical
help, without schools for children.

They rested, washed the stairs at the entrances and schools, helped each other, but they all came round and got on their feet. And we threw outside the collapsed
Power twenty-five million of their own! They threw like dogs! And we cry that the Russian nation is dying out! Russia is huge, with its land, with its
resources, with its lack of labor can not take Russian from abroad to their homeland?
Feelings of the people there! And that means no people. And note - no one wants to go to Russia. And the Russians do not go. They know what's what. Bardak, poverty, theft, banditry. zayed

Analysis: Sweden’s ugly ultraliberalism and the Jews

In this century, only one Jewish community in all of western Europe has decided to dissolve itself because of nonstop threats from neo-Nazis: the community in the town of Umea, in northeastern Sweden. Jews in Sweden account for less than 0.2% of the population, but they are the targets of profound hatred. This does not comport very well with Sweden’s image as a near-perfect liberal democracy.

Major anti-Semitic threats to Swedish Jews have come out of parts of the Muslim community. In 2017, a movie was shown on Bavarian television about the visit to Malmö, Sweden’s third-largest city, by the German Jewish author Henryk Broder and the Egyptian writer Hamad Abdel Samad. They met several local Jews, including the town’s American rabbi. He told them the shrinking community had installed bullet-proof windows at the synagogue, but even that precaution didn’t keep them safe.

I lean toward the modern source of anti semitism, anti zionism turning against the Jews in general, like "the Jews have not learned the lesson of what happened to them and have become the new nazis"

Perhaps we are being confused by the term itself. While I'm sure there is still a lot of 'traditional' anti-semitism around it is arguably less common than a generation or two ago. Perhaps we should simply refer to it as 'anti-Israelism' if we are against the behavior of the state of Israel for the sake of clarity.

well, I live next to the Jewish quarter and we haven't had an attack that got noticed in the 20 years I've lived here.

Then again, there's a relatively heavy police presence in the neighbourhood, especially every major jewish festival.
