Yes, Anti-Zionism Is Anti-Semitism

All you have to do is look at the words of the "anti-Zionists" as they have protested not Israeli policy or the existence of Israel, but the very existence of the Jewish people.

In the late 1960s, the Austrian Jewish writer and Auschwitz survivor Jean Amery wrote, “Anti-Zionism contains anti-Semitism like a cloud contains a storm.” To put it mildly, Amery’s definition of modern anti-Semitism wasn’t accepted by post-Holocaust Europe as a force to be combated. Anti-Zionism was deemed by many Europeans to be a politically and socially correct world view. In short, they viewed it as a form of legitimate “Israel criticism.”

The calls for the dismantling of Israel and shouts to kill Jews on the streets of London, Paris, Berlin, and Frankfurt, to name some of the major European cities where they’ve occurred, are indicative of a lethal anti-Semitic mass movement. What unifies many European elites, large numbers of Muslims, motley crews of leftists and neo-Nazis is a loathing of the Jewishness of Israel.

The 19th-century anti-Semitic German historian Heinrich von Treitschke infamously said, “The Jews are our misfortune.” For the modern anti-Semite that slogan has been transformed into “Israel is our misfortune.”  

Take a small sample of some of the headlines in the media about what is unfolding in Europe: “Neo Nazis, Islamists Declare ‘You Jews are Beasts’ During Protest of Israeli Operation” in Frankfurt; “Firebombs Fail to Ignite at Toulouse Jewish Center”; “Madrid Jews Vow Legal Action against Author Who Justified Expulsions”; “Jewish Museums in Norway closed for fear of Attacks”; “Well-Known Italian Philosopher: ‘I’d Like to the Shoot Those Bastard Zionists”’
; Pro-Palestinians Throw Molotov Cocktail at Paris Synagogue; It’s Like 1938, Says Israeli Ambassador to Germany”;Anti-Semitic Attacks Scar British Cities.

Germany, yes Germany, seems to be one of the main hubs of some of the most intense anti-Semitism. Protesters in Berlin chanted slogans calling for the gassing of Jews.

And it isn't just Europe -- it is happening in America as well. You know -- places like Miami, Chicago, Boston and elsewhere in the United States.

What we are seeing is not merely condemnation of Israel's policies and actions in defending itself from Hamas terrorism -- as if Israel does not have the right to oppose terrorism every bit as much as the United States does.. We are not just seeing calls for the disestablishment of Israel and the ethnic cleansing of the Promised Land of its Jewish inhabitants -- as if fulfilling the goals of the hard-line opponents of Israel does not constitute a de facto act of genocide. Instead we are hearing more than a few calls to move from the vow of "Never Again" that all people of good will agreed to following the destruction of Nazi Germany to a demand to "finish it now" -- a cry to bring to fruition Hitler's Final Solution to the "Jewish Problem".

Can one legitimately disagree with Israel and its policies? Certainly. But all too often, those who claim to be opposed to Israel's policies have a deeper agenda in mind. One therefore must take care not to give aid and comfort to the hatemongers who demand the destruction of the Jewish state and (either implicitly or explicitly) the destruction of the Jewish people with one's criticism. What's more, one must ask an even more basic question -- when one's criticism of Israel gives aid and comfort to the supporters of genocide, doesn't one have a moral duty to avoid saying that which one knows the Jew-haters will use to justify and sanitize their malignant ideology?

Comments on Yes, Anti-Zionism Is Anti-Semitism

The evil ones who call for the destruction of Israel invite God's wrath. It will be ugly for hamas, and for that matter, the entire islamic world. God's promises to Israel are eternal.

Don't be on the wrong side and against Israel.

We are fast approaching the end times. Look at the state of the world and wake up.
