Amnesty’s Problem with Antisemitism

I can’t escape the feeling that not many people take antisemitism seriously. Even now while we witness its rise throughout Europe. Even when Jews are shot dead in supermarkets and schools. This was made particularly clear on Tuesday by the decision taken by Amnesty International to reject a motion calling for them to tackle the rise in antisemitic attacks in the UK. According to the Jewish Chronicle it was the only motion to be defeated at their annual conference.

But don’t be under the impression that Amnesty International are the problem. Their decision to ignore antisemitism in the UK simply serves to hi-light the fact that even people who see themselves as anti racism activists can’t bring themselves to take antisemitism seriously.

They can’t bring themselves to admit Jews are targets of a vicious, murderous hatred so insidious it exists in all levels of polite (and impolite) society. They can’t bring themselves to see that Jews now live in fear of the next attack against themselves and their community…

    They don’t take anti-Semitism seriously because Jewish people still vote for progressives seeking votes, who suck up to anti-Semitic Muslim groups. The progressives can have the votes of both groups. No one can help Jewish people much until they decide they want to live strongly enough to quit voting for their enemies.

    Amnesty International has typically been cosy with radical Islamists — and sympathetic to suspected Islamic terrorist everywhere. When Omar Khadr was incarcerated in the United States, AI Canada’s Alex Neve was jet-setting about — wasting AI dollars — posing at news conferences extolling the virtues of the murderous Khadr. It’s no surprise that Neve and his AI cronies are so tolerant of Jew hatred. It is not only in Europe’s streets, it’s within Amnesty International itself.

    The Jews must go to Israel and support God’s original plan. Israel needs them there.

    Sorry but Amnesty International is just another neo-marxist outfit and lost any credibility years ago. This is clear by their stand on all issues, not only anti-Semitism.
