Anti-Semitism

Post by neugierig »

And while I am at it, from yesterday’s (August 18, 2013) Ha’aretz, with the title: “Angela Merkel: Anti-Semitism remains a threat to German democracy”

Here is the short article:

“German Chancellor Angela Merkel says anti-Semitism and racism remain a threat to democracy in Europe almost 70 years after the end of World War II.

Merkel cited the ongoing trial of five alleged neo-Nazis over the killing of 10 people between 2000 and 2007, and the fact that Jewish schools and synagogues still require police protection, as evidence of the problem in Germany.

She says Germany and the rest of Europe need to be vigilant against who seek to spread a distorted account of history.

Merkel's comments came Saturday in a weekly online address three days before a planned visit to the remains of the Nazi concentration camp at Dachau in southern Germany.

Almost six million European Jews were murdered in the Holocaust orchestrated by Germany's Nazi party.”

Shame on you “far-right extremists”, spreading “a distorted account of history”, how can you? But for the first time I see that “Almost six million Jews” were allegedly murdered. Normally it is 6 million, basta.

I am not sure where Ms. Merkel comes from on such a statement? Anti-Semitism as a concept is just downright idiotic, but having hate for a group and equating that to the greatest threat to German democracy seems like as much of a stretch as awarding Hitler a Nobel peace prize.

Weaponising anti-semitism: state department delegitimises human rights groups

BY LARA FRIEDMAN | NOVEMBER 12, 2020

Amidst the hullabaloo around last week’s U.S. elections, most people probably forgot the recent shocking news that the U.S. Department of State plans to label three leading global human rights groups — Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Oxfam — “anti-Semitic”.

At the core of this campaign is the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) “working definition of antisemitism,” which, in a memo explaining the targeting of Amnesty and friends, the State Department contends the groups are violating. The IHRA was established in 1998 to “strengthen, advance and promote Holocaust education, research and remembrance”. Over time, it increasingly focused on anti-Semitism, and today positions itself as the international body with responsibility for fighting — and authoritatively defining — anti-Semitism. Herein lies the controversy.

There appears to be bipartisan support around making the IHRA definition the official U.S. tool for rooting out alleged anti-Semitism.
Traditionally, “anti-Semitism” means hostility and prejudice toward Jews because they are Jews — a scourge that has imperiled Jews throughout history, and is a source of resurgent threats to Jews today. The IHRA definition, in contrast, is explicitly politicized, refocusing the term to encompass not only hatred of Jews, but also hostility toward and criticism of the modern state of Israel. For example, it labels as anti-Semitic “applying double standards” to Israel or requiring of Israel “behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.”
While it notes that “criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic,” in practice this “double standard” language has paved the way for attacking virtually all criticism of Israel as prima facie anti-Semitic, based on the simplistic argument that focusing criticism on Israel, when other nations are guilty of similarly bad behavior, can only reflect animus against Jews.

According to this logic, it is anti-Semitic to challenge Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands — unless one is equally challenging occupation anywhere. Likewise, boycotting or calling to boycott Israel or settlements to protest violations of Palestinian rights is considered anti-Semitic — unless one is similarly boycotting every country guilty of violating the rights of any people, anywhere.

The IHRA definition also stipulates that it is anti-Semitic to deny “the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor” — notwithstanding the fact that other peoples, including Palestinians, are denied self-determination, and other nations have their existence challenged, including, for example, by Israelis who argue that the state of Jordan should be replaced with Palestine. Yet, this line has become the basis for indicting anyone who identifies as anti-Zionist, or who supports boycotts of Israel or settlements, as anti-Semitic, irrespective of their reasoning and absent evidence that their views are grounded in hostility toward not Israel, but Jews.
