Prosecutors have charged three migrants from Palestine and Syria for attacking a Jewish synagogue in Gothenburg, Sweden last December, following the announcement of the U.S. embassy in Israel’s move to Jerusalem.
Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives are calling on NDP Leader Andrea Horwath to part ways with a candidate in the Toronto area who shared an Adolf Hitler meme on social media several years ago.
At a morning news conference, two PC candidates, Todd Smith and Gila Martow, presented what they say is evidence of antisemitism “festering” in the NDP.
May 22, 2018 – VANCOUVER – A firebrand Vancouver imam recently lauded by B.C. Premier John Horgan has doubled down on his antisemitic and homophobic rhetoric just days after the Premier’s Office refused to withdraw its letter of recognition.
On Sunday, Tarek Ramadan of the Kingsway Mosque publicly posted a video on Facebook which accuses the Jewish Rothschild family of controlling the world’s banks and media, while justifying the Holocaust on the basis that “the Jews sold Germany down the river.” Claims of Jewish control over the media and banks are classic antisemitic conspiracy theories.
Another post by Ramadan, made on Friday, describes Israeli soldiers as “fags,” a homophobic slur.
On April 20, Horgan lauded Ramadan’s “work as a community activist” and extended his “best wishes for [his] continued success,” despite previous antisemitic comments by Ramadan, which were exposed by B’nai Brith. Ramadan understood the Premier’s plaudits as a vindication of his harsh rhetoric, stating that “[G-d] is exalted, and He harnesses His servants as He wishes to defend me and bear witness for me.”
“Premier Horgan’s refusal to disown this man’s antisemitic and homophobic rhetoric is incomprehensible,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada. “We expect the Premier to admit his error and show some leadership.
“Tarek Ramadan is not working ‘to ensure our province is a place of acceptance and vibrancy,’ as the Premier claims. In fact, he is doing exactly the opposite, abusing his position of leadership to fan the flames of hatred and division in society.”
Rather than rescinding its praise of Ramadan, the Premier’s Office has blamed “previous governments” for sending similar certificates to him, and said it was “reviewing the process by which certificates are administered.”
Turkish president tells IOC leaders that Israel must be held accountable for the killing of Palestinians in Gaza Strip.
Salah Bardawil’s confirmation means number of acknowledged members of terror groups who died on Monday and Tuesday is now 53.
On Monday, the virulently anti-Semitic icon of the Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, decided to attack the idea of President Trump as the greatest president for the Jewish people in American history in the most ironic way possible: by sanctimoniously citing someone else’s supposed anti-Semitism.
On Monday and Tuesday, Artema’s audacious “Great March of Return” will face what could be its most formidable and perhaps final test: an attempt by hundreds of thousands of protesters to breach the razor wire fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel.
The leader of the terrorist organization Al Qaida has called for Muslims to wage jihad against the United States. Ayman al-Zawahiri told his followers America’s decision to move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem was evidence that negations and “appeasement” have failed Palestinians. Al-Zawahiri said this in a five-minute video entitled “Tel Aviv is also a land of Muslims”.
According to UNESCO, the Palestinians, and the Muslim States, Israel, and the Jewish People have no right to Jerusalem. It is this fake belief that until Donald Trump became president kept the U.S. from recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Jewish world. Most of the world outside America continues to believe the Palestinian/Muslim propaganda that ignores that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, and even the ancient Muslims, reported Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were the property of the Jewish people.
“We will expand our missile capabilities despite Western pressure … to let Israel know that if it acts foolishly, Tel Aviv and Haifa will brought down in ruins and totally destroyed,” Khatami said in a televised speech at Tehran University.
Return his molecules to a disorganized state.
A spectre that many hoped had all but disappeared has returned to haunt Europe.
The spectre is anti-Semitism, and it has caused great disquiet in the two largest countries of the European Union, Germany and France.
…Steinmeier, a social democratic politician and former foreign minister, met with leaders from the Islamic Association of Shi’ite Congregations in Germany (IGS).
Hamburg’s most recent intelligence report from 2017, which monitors threats to Germany’s democracy, includes a reference to the IGS and a number of its members’ organizations, including the Islamic Center of Hamburg.
The German government classifies the Shi’ite umbrella group as “influenced by extremism,” the intelligence report wrote. Iran’s Blue Mosque, the Islamic Academy and the Islamic Center of Hamburg are widely considered the long-arm institutions in Germany of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
The nation’s recent intake of migrants Muslim states where anti-Semitism is ubiquitous has produced a scary tension—and one that’s not easy to resolve.
…For the plain fact is that most of the migrants who have come (and continue to come) to Europe hail from Muslim-majority countries that long ago expelled their once-vibrant Jewish populations, where anti-Semitism figures prominently in state propaganda, and where belief in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories is widespread. To take just one obvious incongruity between Germany and the migrants it is accepting: Holocaust denial, a crime punishable by prison in Germany, is pervasive across the Muslim and Arab Middle East. Of course, it would be wrong to presume that every Syrian refugee holds the anti-Semitic attitudes of the country’s former defense minister, who published a book repeating the ancient blood libel about Jews killing gentile children to bake matzos for Passover. But it is equally misguided to deny that many have been profoundly influenced by the anti-Semitic environments in which they were raised.
BERLIN – Bullied students. Crude rap lyrics. An ugly confrontation on an upmarket city street.
In another country – one less attuned to the horrors wrought by anti-Semitism – evidence that the scourge is once again growing might have been ignored.
But this is Germany, a nation that nearly annihilated an entire continent’s Jewish population. And after a series of high-profile incidents, the country isn’t waiting to sound the alarm on a pattern of rising hatred toward Jews.
