Danish Imam facing criminal charges for allegedly calling for Muslims to “slay the Jews” to bring on Judgement Day

Imam Mundhir Abdallah is facing charges over 2017 comments when he allegedly called on Muslims to “slay the Jews” to bring on Judgement Day.

“Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them” the Imam allegedly said in a video uploaded to Facebook and YouTube.

Imam Abdallah’s Masjid Al-Faruq mosque has previously been linked to Islamic extremism.

Public prosecutor Eva Ronne said “these are serious statements and I think it’s right for the court to now have an opportunity to assess the case,” she said. “It has always been illegal to accept killings of a certain group of people, but it’s new for us to target hate preachers”.

He could face up to three years in prison.

Legal challenge to infamous neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin clears first legal obstacle

A lawsuit against the founder of the neo-Nazi publication the Daily Stormer, Andrew Anglin, a far-right extremist who named the publication after the propaganda paper of the Third Reich, has cleared a major legal hurdle.

Anglin’s lawyers had challenged the US courts’ jurisdiction in the case, claiming he was not “a citizen of any state” and was not resident in the US when the alleged conduct was committed. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch dismissed this, stating that there was clear evidence that Anglin was domiciled in Ohio when the lawsuit was filed.

Tanya Gersh commenced legal action against Anglin last April, alleging that he had intentionally inflicted “emotional distress” against her, in breach of a Montana anti-intimidation law. Gersh claims that Anglin initiated what turned into a barrage of antisemitic abuse directed at her and other Jewish residents of Whitefish, Montana, when he claimed that they were running an “extortion racket” against the mother of Anglin’s fellow neo-Nazi Richard Spencer. Anglin allegedly publicised the personal information of Jewish residents to his neo-Nazi following, which Gersh claims was used to incite the campaign; one of his articles allegedly urged neo-Nazis to “take action” against Gersh and other Jewish residents of Whitefish.

Gersh claims that her family received reams of threatening antisemitic messages, including her 12-year-old son.

Critics have accused Anglin of attempting to evade the lawsuit by concealing his whereabouts, which he claims he has done in response to “credible death threats”. He vacated the United States in 2010, but Gersh’s lawyers successfully proved he had maintained sufficient business, civic and family ties to the US to demonstrate that he was still domiciled there, including maintaining a postal address to receive donations. Speaking from the Bench, Magistrate Lynch said “even assuming Anglin’s statements are true, they are not sufficient to demonstrate that he lost his Ohio domicile by acquiring a new one abroad”.

David Dinielli, representing Gersh from the Southern Poverty Law Center, claimed that the decision was a clear indication that “you can run but you can’t hide” and that “traipsing around the world doesn’t mean you can escape the responsibility for the harm you caused in the U.S., even if that conduct occurred over the internet”.

Whilst the contemporary far right has attempted to re-brand itself into something more palatable, Anglin’s publication is explicitly neo-Nazi, with sections on the “Jewish question” and “race war”. Google and GoDaddy temporarily rendered the site inaccessible after Anglin mocked the victim of a neo-Nazi terrorist in a car ramming attack at Charlottesville.

Anglin’s site is currently describing Gersh and her team as “Jewish terrorists” on a bulletin pictured below.

Canadian law firm receives threatening antisemitic letter calling for “genocide of Jews”

A Toronto law firm specialising in immigration law has received an antisemitic letter which called for genocide of Jews.

The letter, which was received on Wednesday, claimed that Jews were organising a “genocide of the white race”, a common libel made by contemporary antisemites, particularly those on the alt right.

The letter reads “Jewish genocide of the white race via immigration. Time for a genocide of Jews”.

The reverse side shows a mock-up of the film poster for Dawn of the Dead which reads “Dawn of the Dead Jew” with the tagline altered to read “when there’s no more room in HELL the JEW will walk the earth”.

Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center CEO Avi Benlolo wrote that “the language and imagery used in this antisemitic letter are horrendous. This is not an isolated incident, and it’s very concerning that Canadian Jewish businesses and organizations continue to be targeted with such despicable hate mail. I urge police to take all reports seriously and thoroughly investigate who is behind these threatening letters”.

Resurgent far right led to 4 antisemitic crimes per day in Germany in 2017

Police recorded 1453 antisemitic crimes in Germany in 2017, a figure amounting to around 4 each day.

According to the police the vast majority of these crimes came from members of the far right, a fact that is unsurprising. Despite the fact that Jews face antisemitism from the far left and Islamists as well as the far right, Germany is experiencing a troubling resurgence of the far right, a group that is unrepentant and militant in its hatred of Jews, with far right individuals often centring their world view around antisemitism.

The crimes include 32 acts of violence, 160 cases of property damage and 898 cases of antisemitic incitement.

In 1377 cases, 95% of the crimes, the police determined that the far right was responsible.

Despite commentary from abroad often suggesting that immigration is directly responsible for antisemitism in Germany, only 33% of offenders were foreign-born and only 25 cases were “religiously motivated”, amongst which Islamist crimes are included.

The author of the report believes that the majority of antisemitic crimes go unreported, which paints a deeply disturbing picture of the extent of antisemitism in contemporary Germany.

Anti-Israel protesters in Austria chant “slaughter the Jews”

In the latest of a series of incidents of serious antisemitism at anti-Israel protests, open incitement to violence has been caught on film at a protest in Austria.

Footage that shows protesters chanting “slaughter the Jews” has just been brought to our attention.

The protest took place on Friday afternoon, following Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

A page called “BDS Austria” also shared a video in which the same chants were clearly audible.

Protesters in New York have also called for violence against Jews in the past week, and in Sweden chants of “we are going to shoot the Jews” could be heard in a protest that was followed by a disgraceful fire bomb attack on a Synagogue.

Anti-Israel protesters call for violence against Jews in New York rally addressed by Hamas Imam

In yet another display of blatant and open antisemitism in the wake of Trump’s decision to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, anti-Israel protesters in New York have been videoed warning Jews that the “army of Muhammed is coming” and calling for Israel’s destruction.

The protesters congregated on December 8th and were addressed by several speakers.

One speaker, Imam Mohammad Qatanani, shouted to the crowd “Our message to the Palestinian Authority: you have to stop all kinds of peace processes. No peace process and negotiations with the occupation in Palestine. Oslo has to be stopped and to be finished. We have to start a new Intifada. Intifada! Intifada!”

Qatami has faced deportation from the United States for failing to disclose his conviction in Israel for membership of Hamas, a violent terrorist organisation that calls for the slaughter of Jews.

Another speaker, an unidentified woman, hailed the “Palestinian Vanguard, with their incredible courage” who “fight with whatever they can. They fight with rocks, they fight with rockets from Gaza, they fight with guns, their children fight. Every single Palestinian is in it to win it!”

According to the Definition of Antisemitism “calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews” is a form of antisemitism. The use of rockets, in particular, is a form of indiscriminate violence that is used to target Israeli civilians. However, all the forms of violence which this woman has glorified are often used to target Israeli civilians. Beyond the fact that these comments are antisemitic, it is also highly disturbing to see a person glorifying violent acts committed by children.

Another speaker, Nerdeen Kiswani, said “”We should be just as angry that they [The U.S.] have an embassy in Tel Aviv or Jaffa as we are [about] Jerusalem – because every inch of Palestine is Palestinian land”.

She continued: “we are in the final stages of Israel crumbling. Do you know why? Because they are exposing themselves. No one can look at Israel anymore and say: ‘Yes, they want peace.’ Because if they want peace they wouldn’t have done this. Israel is exposing itself every day, with every Palestinian martyr that they kill. With every inch of Palestinian land that they steal, they are exposing themselves, and their time is limited. Their time is up! It is up to all of us here, including everyone in the crowd, to keep this momentum going, if we want to see Israel fall within our lifetime”.

According to the Definition of Antisemitism, both “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination” and “applying double standards by requiring of Israel a behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation”, which of course would include its own dismantlement, are antisemitic.

Kiswani has a long history of supporting violence against Israelis, and has previously involved herself in a protest that disrupted a council event which was dedicated to commemorating the Holocaust. She has also opposed Jewish-Muslim cooperation at US Universities.

Perhaps most shockingly, the crowd chanted with a leader “Oh Jews, the army of Muhammed will return”, a chant heard at several protests across the world.

A video of these disgraceful events can be viewed here.

Czech politician says that Jews, homosexuals and Roma should be gassed

Jaroslav Staník, the secretary of the far right Freedom and Direct Democracy party, has called for Jews and Roma to be gassed.

Stanik exclaimed “Jews, gays and Roma should be gassed” in Parliament, causing a confrontation with other parties. This occurred in a private restaurant that is part of the Parliament complex and which is not accessible to the public.

One eyewitness, Marek Černoch, claims that Stanik said that Jewish and Roma babies should be shot, commenting that he “demanded that all homosexuals, Roma, and Jews should be shot immediately after they have been born. He also verbally attacked the women that were present with gross insults”.

His calls to gas Jews, homosexuals and Roma have been confirmed by several eyewitnesses.

Stanik is reportedly a close ally of the party leader,  Tomio Okamura.

The far right party holds 22 out of 200 seats in the country’s lower house.

Such comments obviously represent some of the worst verbal displays of antisemitism we see in contemporary Europe, a fact made all the more disturbing by the fact that they originate from an elected official. We will report on any action taken against Stanik, either by the authorities or by his own party.

Canadian Jews express dismay as Imam calling for Allah to slaughter Jews and “give victory” to Jihadis faces no criminal charges

B’nai Brith Canada has expressed it shock following reports from Montreal police that Imams who allegedly made antisemitic comments, including allegedly inciting violence against Jews, would face no criminal charges.

B’nai Brith tweeted that it is “outraged that Quebec prosecutors have chosen not”, whilst adding that claims that too much time has elapsed since the alleged incident are “blatantly false”.

The complaints were made in respect of two sermons given by Wael al-Ghitawi and Sayed al-Ghitawi  at the Al-Andalous Islamic Centre in the St-Laurent borough of Montreal in 2014.

A video showed Sayed al-Ghitawi allegedly calling on Allah “to destroy the accursed Jews” and to “give victory to our brothers who engage in jihad in Palestine”, as well as calling for Jihadis to “kill them one by one” and “make their children orphans and their women widows”.

In the Mosque’s “clarification”, they stated that his his comments were referring merely to killing members of the IDF which they claimed was responsible for an ongoing “massacre” in the region.

The second complaint was made in respect of the Mosque’s Imam, Wael al-Ghitawi, who allegedly claimed that the Jews had no lineage to Ancient Israel and no claim on Modern day Israel. He allegedly describes Jews as having been cursed by Allah for having supposedly killed prophets and rejected Jesus.

B’nai Brith Canada have said that they “won’t accept” the lack of action by the police and are expected to challenge the disgraceful decision on the part of the police to abdicate their responsibility to bring antisemites to justice.

Canadian Imam who allegedly called Jews “human demons” finally sought by police after years of antisemitic comments

According to the Montreal Gazette, Montreal police have issued an arrest warrant for Sheikh Muhammad ibn Musa al Nasr, a Palestinian-Jordanian imam who, in a sermon in the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in Montreal in late 2016, allegedly referred to Jews as “the worst among mankind” and “human demons” and said that he looked forward to the end of days when they would be destroyed. The imam also quoted a well-known hadith, the hadith of the Gharqad Tree, in which stones and trees encourage Muslims to come and kill Jews who are hiding behind them. That hadith is quoted in full in the Hamas Charter.

The B’nai Brith of Canada lodged the criminal complaint against al Nasr and were satisfied with the police response. In March last year, after al Nasr’s sermon, the Muslim Council of Montreal called on the mosque to apologise for having invited him. It is not known whether the mosque did so. The Dar al Arqam Mosque is one of the few mosques in Montreal not under the umbrella of the Muslim Council of Montreal, but it seems that the imam’s behaviour constitutes a pattern in Montreal:

In June 2017 a Youtube video was released of Sheikh Wael Al-Ghitawi whose sermon, in November 2014 at the Al Andalous Islamic Centre in Montreal, was against “the people who slayed the prophets, shed their blood, and cursed the Lord …” Also in early June, a video from August 2014 and released on YouTube showed a different imam at the same mosque allegedly calling for the destruction of “the accursed Jews” and that they be killed “one by one.”

In relation this latest incident, the CBC reported the Muslim Montreal Council’s statement which included the following: that “to use the themes of the Prophet to spread hatred is actually something that is disrespectful towards the Prophet himself.”

That may or may not be true, but the statement is is notable more for what it does not say than for what it does: One can speculate about what might be meant by “using the themes of the Prophet to spread hatred” but highly significant is the statement’s emphasis on al Nasr’s sermon showing disrespect towards the Muslim prophet, whilst at the same time it ignores the immense disrespect and hatred that the sermon showed towards Jews or the sense of threat it might have engendered. There is also the matter of the apology required from the mosque for having hosted al Nasr, but notably no such apology was given.

Ukrainian General calls to “destroy” Jews, saying “go to hell K*kes”

Vasily Vovk, a retired general in Ukraine who still holds a senior rank in the security services, has posted a particular virulent antisemitic rant on his Facebook, which has since been deleted.

He wrote that Ukrainian Jews “aren’t Ukrainians and I will destroy you”. He also threatened to “destroy” a senior Jewish lawmaker.

“I’m telling you one more time – go to hell, zhidi [kikes], the Ukrainian people have had it to here with you” he continued.

He also said that “Ukraine must be governed by Ukrainian”.

These represent some of the most ugly antisemitic attitudes imaginable. Not only is him singling out a Ukrainian lawmaker alongside Jews an indication that he believes that Jews have been wielding influence over politics, as well as his statement that Ukrainians “have had it to here with you”, but also his statement that Jews aren’t Ukrainians is reminiscent of both the worst of medieval persecutions, and of Nazism.

We have been at the forefront of documenting the rising antisemitism in Ukraine, which has involved a revival of ultra-Nationalism which reveres many figures who collaborated with the Nazis, attacks upon Jews, Jewish religious sites, and those who defend the rights of Jews, and pressure from nationalists resulting in criminal proceedings being brought against a Jewish war hero who killed Nazis.

Danish Imam: “fight the Jews and kill them” to bring on “Judgement day”

Jewish communal leaders have filed a complaint after a Copenhagen Imam allegedly suggested that Muslims should “kill” Jews in a video.

Imam Mundhir Abdallah, who preaches in Norrebro, Copenhagen, allegedly claimed that “Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them”, quoting a Hadith. The statement was made in Arabic and was translated by MEMRI. He went on to quote the infamous statement about Jews hiding behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees calling out to Muslims that there is a Jew behind them so that they can be slaughtered.

He also spoke of “liberating” Al-Aqsa Mosque from the “filth of the Zionists” and spoke of a Caliphate waging war against the “Jewish”, not “Zionist”, “entity”.

Dan Rosenberg Asmussen, a communal head of the Jewish communities in Denmark, has called on police to open a criminal investigation for incitement, saying “we fear that weak and easily-influenced persons could interpret this kind of preaching as an appeal to visit acts of violence or terror on Jews”. However, reaching such a meaning seems not to require a strained interpretation at all. Instead, this comes across as the Imam calling the murder of Jews a religious duty, and indeed glorifying it.

Neo-Nazi finally faces trial, after 2 year delay, for threatening to massacre Jewish schoolchildren

David Lenio is finally being charged with allegedly threatening to massacre Jewish schoolchildren, after a delay of almost two years.

Lenio, a White Nationalist from Montana, is alleged to have said that he wishes to “execute 30 or more grade school students”, put “two in the head of a Rabbi or Jewish leader”, and said that the “USA needs a Hitler to rise to power”.

He is also alleged to have tweeted:

“I think every jew on the planet deserves to be killed for what kikes have done to our #dollar and cost of living Killing jews > wage #slave”

“I’m not even opposed to shooting up a random school like that sandy hoax stunt only realer, to voice my displeasure with being a wage slave”

“Let’s make national news, I david lenio know israel did 9/11 and I am so poor that I want to shoot up a kalispell Montana public school …”

Lenio appears to have been arrested in 2015, and subsequently released on a plea bargain which saw felony charges for intimidation reduced to a misdemeanour, in a manner which has been called into question.  Despite repeatedly referring to himself as a “wage slave”, Lenio appears to have been released into the custody of his wealthy investment banker father.

As a condition of this release, he was ordered not to use social media, a restriction which he has allegedly consistently breached. Despite him initially being apprehended with several weapons, there does not appear to be any evidence that he was disarmed as a condition of his release.

Fortunately, it appears that Lenio will finally come before a Judge this month to answer felony charges. The fact that it has taken this long, despite him apparently having consistently fetishised violence, particularly against Jews, is a rather worrying failure of the Justice and Security systems in the United States. This is a man who repeatedly threatened to kill Jews, against whom a case was dropped in an apparently clandestine manner, and who appeared to be heavily armed. Indeed, it seems quite miraculous that he did not carry out any of the attacks that he threatened, given that the only engagement he was forced to have with the authorities was to report where he was living if he moved. We can only hope that he finally meets with the full force of the law and that prosecutors are more proactive against bringing similar threats to justice in the future.

Facebook says page accusing “occult Jews” of “sacrificing Christian children” doesn’t violate its community standards

Facebook has refused to remove a page which propagates the most incendiary and unabashed blood libel, claiming that the content does not violate its community standards.

The page is called “Jewish ritual murder” and has as its secondary title “truthaboutjews”

Blood libel is the scurrilous accusation that Jews murder Christian children to bake matzo. It originated in Christian Europe and was historically used to incite violence against Jewish communities, frequently leading to large scale pogroms, individual murders, expulsions, rapes and torture. It is closely linked to similar accusation that Jews poisoned wells. Today there are many equivalents of blood libel, such as the accusation that Israel Jews engage in organ harvesting. As well as this, blood libel has taken a hold in the Muslim world, and similar accusations are made by both the far left and the far right.

Among the accusations on the page is that Andrei Kievski and various other Christian figures were “killed by occult Jews”. It also says that Jews are to be collectively held responsible for various biblical events.

They also reproduced a 1932 article from Der Stürmer, the Nazi tabloid newspaper produced by Julius Streicher, who became a central figure in the Nazi party. The article purports to be a history of “Jewish ritual murders”, and it includes accusations that children were “tortured to death” by Jews. The fact that Facebook found that a page that is quite literally sharing Nazi propaganda, which was instrumental in creating the atmosphere of rampant antisemitism that eventually led to the Holocaust, is deeply concerning.

One of the comments reads “shame on Jews”. The page has clearly been proactive in deleting many comments from its followers, and appears to run a policy of doing so, as having the page deleted for bigoted comments is “what they want to accomplish”.

The page, of course, also attacked Israel, writing that their page is under threat as attacking antisemitic pages “is source of great money as so called jewish state finance whole machinery of internet trolls recruited among jewish students”. This is perhaps the clearest demonstration yet of how traditional antisemitism blends seamlessly into antisemitism disguised as criticism of Israel. The fact that Jewish students are singled out is particularly worrying, as Jewish students at various Universities, including at SOAS in London, have been accused of being agents of the Israeli state, a vicious accusation which is used to bait and harass Jewish students under the guise of attacking what is perceived to be an Israeli policy. 

There are quite literally of dozens of posts containing blood libel, none of which Facebook upon inspection thought violated its community standards. This is not the first time Facebook has failed to enforce its own rules; last year it decided that calling to “gas this shrivelled up Jewish piece of shit” did not violate its rules. Facebook must start enforcing its rules to prevent Nazi propaganda and incitement to violence from being allowed to flourish on its platform.

In the meantime, please take the time to report the page, which can be found here.

Pre-school teacher in Texas suspended for saying “not enough” Jews were killed in the Holocaust

A Muslim pre-school teacher in Texas has been suspended from teaching in light of an investigation into her twitter activities, in which she encouraged her friend and social media followers to “kill some Jews! <3” and to “Kiss the Palestine ground”, promulgating both her anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist stances online.

We previously covered Nancy Salem’s antisemitic comments when we documented several instances of antisemitism among students and alumni of University of Texas, Arlington. However, it has since emerged that Salem has since found employment as a teacher.

Nancy Salem, a teacher at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington, was one of 24 anti-Israel activists exposed by the university of Texas watchdog group Canary Mission for broadcasting such racist and violent thought. Among other sentiments, she posted a series of despicably antisemitic statements, including: “How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough… HAHAHAHA.”

Children look to their teachers as sources of inspiration and knowledge, and it is clear from her radical stances this individual is not fit for that purpose, and as such should be permanently discharged as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this is a case where an individual has been allowed to have their deeply antisemitic views flourish, apparently unchallenged, throughout their University career, and is not unsurprisingly importing these views into the wider world, which sadly in this case has involved contact with children.

Parents at the school are outrage, and some are calling for her immediate dismissal.

Police investigate as Muslim and Anti-Zionist students in Texas call for another Holocaust, spout blood libel

The district attorney’s office in Houston, Texas, in cooperation with the Houston police, is currently trying to determine if antisemitic comments that were posted to Twitter, by thirteen past and current students at the University of Houston (UH), constitutes a hate crime.

The Canary Mission, an anonymous online antisemitic watchdog, collected all of the tweets in their report, Kill All The Jews. Members of the UH chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the Muslim Student Association (MSA), and students associated with the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS), along with unaffiliated individuals, were responsible for the posts, which go back as far as 2012.

Of paramount concern are tweets by UH students that both incite violence and promote violence against Jews:

“I am gonna throw rocks at yahood [Jews] this summer and no one is stopping me.” – Tarek Abdoh, April, 2015

“Yall don’t understand I want to beat a zionist bitch up so bad.” – Noor Radwan, July, 2016

“Hitler should have killed them [the Jews] all” – Amal Tabal, November, 2012

“If you could press one button to kill all zionists, but it would also kill every Jew out there, would you press it? – Noor Radwam, October, 2015

“Palestine will be the 2nd Holocaust for the Yahood [Jews].” – Rawen Saleh, March, 2013

“I mean it when I say I wish Hitler finished them off in the holocaust. I know there’s a difference between Jews and Zionists.” – Mahmoud Eissa, July, 2014

“@HitlerDictator  Versace. Versace. [Italian fashion designer]    F**k bitches bake Jews that’s the life of a Nazi” – Zain Dharani, August, 2013

As was to be expected, the report included a tweet that put forth a classic blood libel. In November, Noor Radwan tweeted: “A Jewish rabbi has admitted to using human child meat as a filler in McDonalds meat. They allegedly drug teens, and kill them for their meat, THE TRUTH ABOUT MCDONALD’S & MISSING CHILDREN.”

When a UH student can actually present such an outrageous blood libel as a fact, then, Houston, you’ve got a problem.

No one would agree more than Kenneth L. Marcus, president and general counsel for the Washington D.C. based Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, According to Marcus: “Whether the university can punish the speech or not, they have an obligation to address the underlying problem”. Marcus told the Jewish-Herald: “The legal restrictions might tell them [the University of Houston] how they can deal with it, but the fact is they need to deal with it and they need [to] deal with it firmly.”

Although the tweets are currently under review by the Dean of  the Student’s Office, it is troubling that tweets that promote violence and bigotry are not automatically in violation of the UH Code of Conduct.

A tweet by Mamoon Hindi in August, 2015 is a typical example:”It’s not music you f****ing fag. Candyass Brit, fish n’ chips motherf****ker. Zionist f***k face douchebag.”

Obviously, it is no surprise that Hitler is the star of so many of the tweets: “Hitler mah n***ga”;”Hitler said he left some Jews alive so the world would know why he killed em”; “Hitler died too soon, really”.

Lee Wunsch, of the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston (JFGH), told The Algemeiner that celebrating the mass murder of Jews with “violent tweets”, the calls for a Third Intifada–murdering Jews as “resistance” against Israel–praise for both Hitler and Hamas terrorists, whose goal is the wholesale slaughter of Israeli Jews–had the organization’s “full attention”.

When the Canary Mission report was released to the public, Rabbi Kenny Weiss, executive director of Houston Hillel, told the Jewish-Herald: “Houston Hillel takes very seriously any inflammatory comments directed at Jews”. As a result, Rabbi Weiss contacted both the UH  campus police, the greater Houston police department, the UH Office of Legal Affairs, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and the Houston office of the Jewish Federation.

Dayan Gross, the ADL Southwest Regional Director told The Algemeiner: “While ADL respects freedom of speech, we reserve the right to make sure people see hateful speech for what it is and counter it”. Gross, who filed a complaint with the Houston police, is closely monitoring the situation.

The UH Legal Affairs office told the Jewish-Herald that “we take any matter involving the safety and welfare of our university community very seriously”. The vice-chancellor of Legal Affairs, Dona Hamilton Cornell, stated: “UH is safe for all students, Jews included.”

However, UH Jewish students have criticized the administration for failing to condemn the students who threatened the personal safety of Jews.

It is a given that if hateful tweets had targeted UH African-American students and the posts had: a) promoted lynchings and physical assaults against blacks  b) celebrated the KKK and slavery, instead of Hitler and the Holocaust, and c) used vile language like, “F***ing N***er”, rather than “Zionist c**t”, then, without question, a national media firestorm would have been ignited. And the University of Houston would have told the press that such toxic behavior will be met with swift punishment.

But when the tweets, in question, called for the beating and stoning of Jews, the University of Houston would only call the tweets, “repugnant” speech.

“I want my university to show that it legitimately cares about its diverse population and not just certain student groups,” Tatiana Uklist, the founder of the UH chapter of Students Supporting Israel, told the Jewish-Herald.

However, vice-chancellor Cornell feels that the university has created a level playing field because it fosters an environment where diverse beliefs are “welcomed”.

And that means welcoming the beliefs of a Palestinian woman named Rasmea Yousef Odeh, who just happens to be a terrorist who was convicted of murdering Jews.

Despite vigorous protest from Jewish students, administrators allowed the UH chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, which, according to Kenneth L. Marcus, is “a hate organization and must be addressed as such”, to hold a spring fundraiser in Odeh’s honor.

UH dismissed complaints from Jewish students that the fundraiser was a safety threat. Instead the administration called it a “speech-related political disagreement”. Odeh was imprisoned in Israel for murdering two Jewish college students, from Hebrew University, in a 1969 supermarket bomb attack in Jerusalem.

Odeh, who came to America, after being released by Israel in a prisoner exchange, is facing deportation due to immigration fraud.

It would, of course, be unthinkable for any college campus in the United States of America to hold a fundraiser for Dylann Roof, who murdered nine African-Americans, while they prayed in a South Carolina church on June 17, 2015.

And it is precisely because the University of Houston has whitewashed the issues surrounding violence and Jews, that many Jewish students now feel that they are subject to a dangerous double standard, which puts them at risk.

But whether or not the Houston District Attorney’s office ultimately labels the tweets an actual hate crime or a non-criminal hate incident is really a moot point. Because labelling the tweets doesn’t alter the original intent of the UH tweets: the demonization and outright hatred of Jews.

Iran’s Supreme leader calls to destroy “cancerous tumour” Israel, seemingly blames Israel for ISIS

Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, has called for a “holy intifada” to destroy the “cancerous tumour” of Israel.

In his opening address to Iran’s sixth international conference in support of the Palestinians, Khamenei described the whole world as being on a collision course with the “Zionist regime”. He said “From the beginning, this cancerous tumor has been developing in several phases until it turned into the current disaster…the cure for this tumor should be developed in phases as well.”

Describing Israel as a “cancerous tumour” is reminiscent of antisemitic language used against Jews, particularly in Nazi Germany, which referred to Jews as vermin or diseases which needed to be eradicated. The idea of Jews as a disease is still very common in far right antisemitism. According to the definition of antisemitism, it is antisemitic to use the “symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism to characterise Israel or Israelis”.

He reportedly blamed Israel for the current upheaval in the wider Middle East. Accusing Israel of founding, organising or funding ISIS is currently a very common antisemitic conspiracy theory which we are increasingly encountering online, and which we have covered instances of several times, including from a prominent anti-Zionist Facebook group and from a London-based Labour party fundraiser.

The Ayatollah said “the people of Palestine have no option other than keeping the flames of fighting alight by relying on Allah the Exalted and by relying on their innate capabilities, as they have genuinely done so until today” and also described the “brutal occupation” of Palestine as the worst case of oppression of a group of people in recorded history.

As an organisation, we have no position with the conflict between Israel, the Palestinians and other Middle Eastern states. However, describing the situation of Palestinians as the worst case of oppression in recorded history is ahistorical to the point of amounting to denial of the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, the Rwandan Genocide and a plethora of other atrocities in human history. It is a statement that is calculated to demonise Jews as the perpetrators of the worst atrocity in human history, which is in turn being used to incite terrorism.

Australia: Man charged with terrorism after making “how to” videos about killing Jews

A man in Australia is being charged with a series of terrorism-related offences after he allegedly produced a series of videos inciting violence against Jews.

The man, 50, was arrested by police in Adelaide on Thursday, and is being charged with four counts of advocating terrorism, each of which carries a potential 5 year sentence.

His lawyer has claimed that her client has mental health difficulties, and his initial hearing took place via telephone from the state infirmary.

Commonwealth Prosecutor, John Clover, said:

“In each video the defendant is depicted advocating with other persons engaged in acts of terrorism via the defendant providing explicit verbal instructions as well as physical demonstrations with weapons as to how to kill Jewish people”.

We applaud the action of the police and prosecution services, who have assured Jewish communities in Australia that there is no heightened risk as a result of the videos.

Tennessee students: “may Allah annihilate the Jewish dogs”, “we need a new Hitler”,

The Canary Mission, a group which monitors antisemitic and other extremist activity on American University campuses, has exposed various Muslim students at Universities in Tennessee as having posted virulent antisemitic statements online.

Canary Mission had previously revealed a “cesspool” of antisemitism at Knoxville, University of Tennessee.

In a new investigation, Dana Swaies, who had previously been an organiser for the Muslim Students Association, and who studies at Middle State University Tennessee, was found to have posted a number of antisemitic statements on his Twitter. One tweet in Arabic read “may Allah annihilate the Jewish dogs”. Responding to a rocket attack on Israeli territory he tweeted “Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dog!!! May Allah annihilate you!”.

Dareen Ahmad, another member of the MSA at Middle State called for a “new Hitler” who he hoped would wipe out Israel.

Following the kidnapping of Israeli’s in 2014, Ahmad wrote “May Allah annihilate them…May Allah defeat them. Dogs,” and “May Allah annihilate you [Jews], Allah willing!”.

He also wrote that the “yahood” (Jews) are stopping Palestinians from returning home.

A freshman at Memphis University, Nadeen Elayan, called Jews “pussies” for mourning the murder of three Jewish boys by terrorists.

Mohamed Khalil, a sophomore at Memphis, wrote “fuck the Jews, may Allah annihilate them”.

Nadine Taha also accused “Zionists” of committing Genocide of Palestinians, directly comparing it to Nazi Germany, which is antisemitic according to the International Definition of Antisemitism.

Comments such as these demonstrate two things all-too-clearly. Firstly, they are indicative of a horrible environment for Jewish students on University campuses, who are being asked to co-exist with people literally and openly calling for their extermination, who often can do so with impunity. Secondly, they illustrate the extent to which anti-Israel discourse has crossed over a line into unambiguous and dangerous antisemitism, much of which amounts to incitement. Such a situation is intolerable for Jewish students, and Universities must start address antisemitism on their campuses before social media barrages like these turn into incidents of physical violence.

These are just a small selection of the comments from Muslim students in Tennessee.

A CPR mannequin with a Star of David and swastika was hung on a bridge in Roßwein, in central Saxony.  The police are investigating this as a hate crime.

The effigy of a Jewish man was spotted by a driver, who initially thought a human was hanging. Obviously this is a shocking public display of antisemitism, which borders on incitement, and we hope that the police are successful with their investigations.

Facebook says “gas this shriveled up Jewish piece shit” doesn’t violate its Community Standards

Facebook has refused to remove a comment from an Alt Right page which called for George Soros to be gassed.

The comment on a page called Disdain for Plebs, which though right wing, is not itself an antisemitic page, reads:

“Gas this shriveled up Jewish piece of shit. If he really misses Uncle Adolf, he would love getting shoved in an oven, and later made into soap”.

85 people (so far) liked the comment.

When the comment was reported, Facebook said that it did not violate its community standards. The comment was made by a man called “John Holloway”, but we know nothing about the individual minus his name.

Soros, who is Jewish, is a controversial figure in the Jewish community for his support of pro-Palestinian causes. Nonetheless, calling for a Jew to be gassed in blatant reference to the Holocaust is antisemitic.

“Gas the Kikes” graffiti and other racist language at Duke University

A local news source has reported that antisemitic and racist graffiti was found on the Duke University campus ahead of an NAACP event.

The graffiti read “Gas the Kikes”. Such a statement is not just merely antisemitic, but could easily be considered an act of incitement. Using the imagery of the Holocaust to target and incite Jews is an unambiguous call for genocide.

Other graffiti included “F*ck N*ggers”.

Alec Greenwald, who works with the Duke chapter of NAACP, told the press “as we were waiting for the other student groups to trickle in, my kids wanted to read some of the messages that were on the tunnel. As we walked through the tunnel, we arrived at 3 derogatory messages targeting various identity groups. After having a conversation with my kids about the messages, I suggested to the student groups that we focus on that portion of the wall to paint over“.

The identity of the perpetrator is currently unknown, but the police are investigating.

A Duke University NAACP Representative commented:

The hate speech covering the graffiti wall was unfortunate, but perhaps more unfortunate was that the existence of the slurs was genuinely unsurprising to many of the students present. Racism and homophobia are not relics of an ancient and forgotten America—or Duke, for that matter—that has since been cleansed of imperfection with time. They are instead inevitable in the experience of many of the students on this campus. Extreme examples such as this only serve to remind us of the work that remains to be done in ensuring that members of our community feel safe during their earned pursuit of academic excellence.”

Trump supporters send death threats to Jewish journalists

Although Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has publicly stated that he has no ties to antisemitic hate groups, that has not stopped Trump’s antisemitic               supporters – neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the alt-right – from making death threats against the press.

Jewish journalists have discovered that for some Trump supporters, demonstrating loyalty to their “Glorious Leader”, the extreme right’s nickname for Trump, has threatened their sense of personal safety.

Jewish Russian-born journalist, Julia Ioffe, infuriated Trump supporters when she wrote an article for the magazine, GQ, that was critical of Trump’s wife, Melania. As a result, Ioffe, filed a report with the Washington D.C. police over  threats “to kidnap or injure a person”.

Flooded with death threats and prank calls, Ioffe, even received a prank call that played a recording of Hitler’s speeches. Another caller said “her face would look good on a lampshade”. Ironically, Ioffe’s family fled Russia because of antisemitism.

Reporter Bethany Mandel, a convert to Judaism, who has an active presence on Twitter, wrote in an article for the Jewish newspaper, the Forward, that after making anti-Trump tweets, she was a victim of “terrifying and profound antisemitism”. But it was receiving actual death threats in her private Facebook mailbox that motivated Mandel, a resident of New Jersey, to file a report with the New Jersey police.

Ultimately, Mandel, who was called a “slimy Jewess” and told that she “deserved the oven”, felt so threatened that she even applied for a gun permit.

Former Breitbart writer, Ben Shapiro, who is an Orthodox Jew, also felt the need to purchase a weapon after being hit “with a number of death threats”. Shapiro told writer Bethany Mandel that “there are an outsized set of Trump supporters who will threaten your safety”. The fact that Jews feel so threatened by supporters of the Trump campaign that they feel like they must own weapons for their own safety indicates just how dire the situation is becoming, with rising far-right activity clearly denting citizen’s faith that the police can protect them.

Shapiro, who is the recipient of hate tweets from David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, left the conservative website, Breitbart, because he was unable to support their pro-Trump editorial stance.

And yet, according to Jewish writer, Bradley Burston, a reporter for the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, it’s just not Trump’s supporters who are dangerous. Trump harms democracy because he “enables and tolerates and excuses and pumps it [antisemitism]”.

Andrew Anglin, the editor of the alt-right (alternative right) white nationalism website, The Daily Stormer, told the Los Angeles Times that “virtually every alt-Nazi I know is volunteering for the Trump campaign”.

Peter Montgomery, who tracks far right groups at People For The American Way, an advocacy group, believes that the extreme right’s involvement in politics will have “damaging, long-term consequences” for America. This fact would not surprise Burston, who criticized Trump for giving “a podium to bigots, an arena stage to hatred”.

Palestine activist implies another Holocaust is coming, spouts blood libel

Mamal Tamimi, a member of the Palestinian  Tamimi family renown for their anti -Israel protests is shown to use social media to express highly inflammatory  anti-semitic messages and images in an article from Israellycool dated 16th September 2016.

“Much has already been written about her support for terror against Israel. But what is perhaps less known is that she is an out-and-out Jew hater”, states Aussie Dave.

His article contains examples of Mamal Tamimi’s postings which demonise Israelis, are wholly offensive against Jews in the context of the Holocaust,  describing Zionists as “zionazis”; contains highly defamatory age-old anti-semitic prejudices  including blood libel and child killings. She is also shown to express denial of Jewish identity against Ashkenazi Jews; and espouses false claims which deny Jewish heritage to Israel and specifically to Temple Mount, and advocates killing Zionists.

One image she shared of the Grand Mufti and Hitler said, regarding the former’s support for the Holocaust, that Netanyahu should “b carful”, implying that another Holocaust is going to happen. She also shared an image which claimed that the “real Holocaust” was happening in Palestine; such a claim borders on Holocaust denial, as the sheer difference in deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict and the Holocaust, and the fact that the Arab-Israeli conflict has been an armed conflict in which Israel has frequently been called upon to defend itself means that no meaningful comparison can be drawn between them.

Another image she shared was a cartoon of a Nazi beating a creature with a whip. The creature was depicted wearing a kippah, with peyot and with stereotypical “Jewish” features.

She has also shared an image purporting to show a quote from Menechem Begin in which he describes the Jews as the “master race”. Claims that Jews believe they are superior to other have been a common theme in antisemitism throughout the ages, yet are used almost entirely to incite hatred against Jewish people and their beliefs.

One picture she shared shows Haredi Jews searching through large dustbins. She captions it “Zionists searching for their history in Palestine”, clearly showing that when she speaks of “Zionists”, she is really just speaking about Jews.

She has written of “vampire Zionists…drinking Palestinian bloods” – a shameless rehashing of age-old blood libel.

Aussie Dave reports that the Tamimi family include teenager Shirley Temper , whose real name is Ahed Tamimi , renown for her anti-Israeli online videos. He claims that Mamal Tamimi is also involved in the Tamimi Press, which he describes as an anti-Israeli propaganda outlet owned by Ahed Tamimi’s father Bassem Tamimi, and  supported by some sections of the mainstream media, and smaller media like AMZ Productions of Oregon. This content demonstrates how easily anti-Zionist rhetoric can feed into pure, unadulterated antisemitism.

A 17-year-old male student in Sunnyvale, California, has been arrested after he was alleged to have sent antisemitic threats to Jewish students.

The student, who has not been identified because of his age, allegedly made the threats to at least two Jewish students at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale and Homestead High School in Cupertino, but it is thought he may have targeted up to 50.

The mother of one of the students took a screenshot of the threat, which was made from an account called “Jewslaughter”.

The message reads “Jews disgust me, I’ll fucking kill you. I got connections to the aryan brotherhood gang. You and the rest of your people are dead”.

DUNCAN, SC (WSPA) – The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating threats made against both Jewish and Muslim students at Byrnes High School.

Some of the threats included photos of the suspect wearing a gas mask, with a Nazi Iron Cross, and holding a swastika knife. They were made over Facebook.

The student who received the threats immediately reported them to the police. He had been communicating with the suspect on Facebook for some time before the latter’s posts suddenly became threatening.

Deputies say they are working to identify the person behind the threats, and Spartanburg County District Five says law enforcement will be patrolling the school throughout the weekend, performing random sweeps of the campus before students return.

The Superintendent of Spartanburg District 5 released a statement aiming to reassure parents and the wider community. He said they were taking these threats extremely seriously and doing everything possible to secure the campuses for the safety of the students and staff.

Facebook allows “kill all Jews” post on wall of Canadian Professor

Facebook has ruled that an image calling explicitly for the genocide of all Jews is acceptable according to its community standard.

An image featuring a white man placing a Charedi Jew in a chokehold, accompanied by an antisemitic tract which incites genocide, was deemed acceptable when it was reported by B’nai Brith Canada.

B’nai Brith Canada reported the image, which was ruled acceptable within two hours, when it was alerted to it having been posted on the Facebook page of Canadian Academic Professor Anthony Hall, who is a Holocaust denier.

The text on the image reads:

“There never was a ‘Holocaust’, but there should have been and, rest assured, there WILL be, as you serpentine kikes richly deserve one. I will not rest until every single filthy, parasitic kike is rounded up and slaughtered like the vermin that they are. The white man has had more than enough of the international Jewry and we are more than prepared to smite the parasite for the millionth time. The greedy, hook-nosed kikes knows that their days are numbered and, unlike in the past, they have nowhere to run. This time there will be no kikes alive  to spread around the planet like cockroaches. We will get them ALL into the oven and their putrid memory will finally be erased from the planet once and for all. Like all parasite, the Jew will continue to reproduce until every single last one has been wiped out. This is why it is crucial that all kikes are ruthlessly and mercilessly butchered for the good of us all. KILL ALL JEWS NOW! EVERY LAST ONE!”

After B’nai Brith Canada’s coverage, the image appears to have been taken down, but it is unclear whether Facebook have changed their minds or whether the author of the post wanted to avoid a public backlash and removed it himself.

The supporters had gathered at a train station prior to a clash with local rivals ŁKS Łódź, a team which is often derisively referred to as having large amounts of Jewish support by rival clubs, in a manner much similar to how Tottenham Hotspur are discussed in the British Premier League.

The Widzew fans burned effigies which appeared to depict caricatures of Orthodox Jews, as well as revealing a banner with the text “1908, today the Jews were named. Let them burn, motherfuckers”, referring to the founding date of the rival club.

Some of the fans also appear to be performing Nazi salutes.

Antisemitic Christian writer hopes Trump will exterminate the Jews

Texe Marrs is a Christian fundamentalist and conspiracy theorist who has rallied behind Donald Trump.

In the past he has authored books with titles such as “Holy Serpent of the Jews: The Rabbis’ Secret Plan for Satan to Crush Their Enemies and Vault the Jews to Global Dominion” and “Conspiracies of the Six Pointed Star”.

On a podcast with another far-right extremist, Mike Rense, Marrs declared that Donald Trump could be an “instrument of God” to destroy the Jews. He had suggested that Stalin had been planning to exterminate the Jews of the Soviet Union, but was assassinated before he could, and that Hitler is unfairly criticised. Whilst he goes on to talk about “Israel” being destroyed, his past writings in which he frequently speaks of “Jewish” conspiracies, which he references in the last paragraph quoted here, as well as the context in which he defends the murder of Jews, demonstrate that Marrs is not talking about political opposition to Israel. He goes on to say:
Israel is going to be destroyed and it is going to happen so fast we’ll all be shocked about it. It’s going to happen and I’ve been wondering if maybe, let me just say something here, could Trump be the instrument of God in this? He doesn’t have to be a Hitler, he doesn’t have to be a Stalin, he can simply be a good guy.”

“He’s going to have to move very fast against these people”

“[Trump] may be so smart though, and intelligent that he outwits them…he’s their friend, he’s their pal, he’s their buddy and then it’s suddenly, wow. He takes the woman, the whore, so to speak, Mystery Babylon the Great and suddenly he destroys her, in one single hour she will be destroyed

“I pray they get what’s coming to them”

“These people who have done such horrible things over the years and who, right now, are plotting such horrible deeds against gentiles and others, I hope they get what they deserve. I hope they do and I hope maybe Trump could be the instrument of it.”

In his other work, he has accused George Bush of attending a Black Mass in the Great Pyramid of Giza and claimed that the Clintons are “deep into Egyptian occultism and Masonic magic”.

Official at Islamic University calls for “final solution”

A senior administrator at the Islamic University in Lecce, Italy, has called for a “final solution”

On his Facebook page, Raphael Villani wrote “there needs to be a final solution for Zionists” and that “the real Jews are the victims of Zionists”.

The Israeli Embassy in Italy discovered the comments, which have since been removed.

Calling for a final solution, the language used by the Nazis to describe the systematic extermination of the European Jewry, is clearly antisemitic, and is also a possibly a case of incitement. His assertion that Zionists are not “real Jews” contradicts many surveys and polls which show that large proportions of religious Jews identify as Zionists. It is thus a tool used to strip Jews who disagree with his position of their voice and their identities, attempting to portray the minority of Jews who agree with his position as “real” Jews, and the rest as not.

Given that in America, as an example, 90% of Orthodox Jews, 88% of Conservative Jews, and 70% of Reform Jews count themselves as Zionists, calling for a “final solution for Zionists” is nothing short of advocating genocide.

Lina Allan, a pro-Palestinian activist based in Michigan, has allegedly uploaded an antisemitic video which defends stabbing “Jews”.

Despite the fact that she claims to be speaking about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Allan never talks about “Israelis”, and instead directly talks about stabbing “Jews”.

She decries those who criticise the stabbing of Jews as trying to be “muftis” and tells them to “go back to watching Turkish Soap operas”.

Finally, she claims that even if it was “haram” to stab Jews, they still wouldn’t have human rights, but would have “at best, animal rights”.

Edinburgh student calls Zionists “sub human”, says they should be subjected to the “worst torture”

A student at the University of Edinburgh and NUS delegate has allegedly posted horrific antisemitic incitement on his Facebook account.

The student described an Israeli footballer, Nir Bitton who plays for Celtic, as “a filthy Zionist rat”. Describing Jews in animalistic terms, particularly describing them as vermin, is a recurring antisemitic trope, and replacing the word ‘Jew’ with the word ‘Zionist’ does not make it any less antisemitic.

He also writes that “Zionists are sub human” and believes that Nir Bitton should in “a jail cell for supporting the apartheid regime”. The use of the term subhuman unambiguously and directly draws upon the terminology used by the Nazis to describe their victims, particularly Jews.

Another commenter replies “gas him”, to which the student replies that it would be “too good for him”, instead suggesting that he should be exposed “to the worst torture” – a direct act of incitement of violence towards a man whose only ‘crime’ is to have been born a Jew in Israel.

The incident has been reported to the police and is being investigated as a hate crime.

The Union of Jewish Students commented:

“We are aware of the offensive and hate-filled social media posts made by a student at the University of Edinburgh. There is no place for such reprehensible comments in society.

Abu Qatada discusses Holocaust and Protocols in antisemitic YouTube broadcast

Notorious Jordanian cleric Abu Qatada has denied the Holocaust, praised the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and spread the blood libel in a video on his YouTube channel.

The Salafi Islamist preacher, who formerly lived in the UK and was imprisoned and then deported to Jordan after being suspected of links to terrorism, discussed the issues last month in the 24th instalment of a series titled “1000 Books Before Death”.

While discussing the Protocols, he began to claim that Jews use gentile blood in matzos, saying: “There are two [issues] that are, in fact, one and the same. The first issue is the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and the second is the Jewish matzos. They both constitute the first issue.

“The second issue is the Holocaust. … In the first three years when we were jailed together with common criminals, they would tell us to come out of our cells. Where are we going? To a big get-together to commemorate the Holocaust… Britain in its entirety commemorates the Holocaust, even the prisoners. The Holocaust is their claim that Hitler killed six million in the gas chambers. This is a worthless lie, of course. Even the burning of Jews did not happen. They would burn the dead. When someone in the Jewish camps died, where could they bury him? They would throw him into the oven. That’s all there was to it. They claimed that six million Jews were killed in the fighting. The number of Jews in Europe before the war was six million. It is a lie, which they blew out of proportion in order to benefit from it.

“A Jewish journalist wrote a book titled The Holocaust Industry. The Jews peddle this. It is an industry. They fabricated it and used it to drain the world.”

Abu Qatada then returned to the programme’s ostensible topic, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

“If anyone talks about The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, they turn him into a laughing stock,” he said. “He is regarded as a lunatic who does not belong to humanity. Who can even mention The Protocols of the Elders of Zion? What is even stranger is [what happens] when someone talks of the matzos of Zion. Do you know about the Jewish matzos, which are eaten on the Jewish holiday? Let me talk a little about the matzos before moving to the Protocols, their history, and the attempts to deny them … there is a text in the Talmud… It says that the matzos eaten by the Jews on their holiday must be consecrated with the blood of a man from among the Gentiles. Usually they take a Christian because they cannot overpower a Muslim. This actually happened, yet they treat it as a mockery. … If you say this in the West they mock you. ‘Who would eat blood?’ they say. But this is the truth.”

He went on to repeat conspiracy theories about Jewish financial and geopolitical influence, stating: “The Jews control the world and that is a fact. The Jews run the global economy, that is a fact. … The West hates the Jews for a reason. They view the Jews as bloodsuckers. They view them as usurers who suck the blood of the people.”

Just before Holocaust Memorial Day, Nazis parade “Hitler was right” banner in centre of Newcastle

A group of neo-Nazis from “National Action” paraded in the centre of Newcastle at the foot of Grey’s Monument with a “Hitler was right” banner on Saturday. Members of the group performed Nazi salutes in the centre of the square. Some local people remonstrated with them but at least one onlooker returned their Nazi salute (see photo below). When a musician in the square attempted to play saxophone music, one of the neo-Nazis violently attacked him. In addition to the assault, the use of the banner and Nazi salutes constitute offences of racially aggravated intentional harassment, alarm and distress under section 4A of the Public Order Act, as well as other possible offences.

The group previously attempted to demonstrate in Liverpool in August and September 2015, causing widespread public disorder and the cancellation of their demonstrations, with the group humiliated in August when they were unable to leave Liverpool Central train station. They then returned unannounced in November 2015 and delivered short speeches outside various public buildings and monuments in Liverpool, including speeches against Jews saying that: “Jews don’t care about me. They don’t care about you. They don’t care about any of us. All they care about is money and power.” Their video of the event contained additional antisemitic graphics and quoted from Adolf Hitler’s antisemitic diatribe, Mein Kampf. There have been no arrests.

In June 2015, “National Action” filmed themselves desecrating a menorah in Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park by spraying graffiti and hanging a Nazi flag from it. There have been no arrests.

National Action’s blog contains 282 references to the word “Jew”, including accusations that Jews:

  • Use the blood of non-Jews in rituals
  • Usurp power through financial and political conspiracies
  • “Terrorise” the non-Jewish population through usury
  • Dilute Aryan races by operating the slave trade, then campaigning for civil rights in order to weaken Aryan races

Jonathan Sacerdoti, Director of Communication at Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “It is very clear that ‘National Action’ is an antisemitic neo-Nazi organisation which is trying to propagate fascist ideology and sees as its role models some of the most hideous figures in history. The group’s purpose is incitement to racial and religious hatred and its activities range from vandalism to violence. Unfurling a banner proclaiming ‘Hitler was right’ and performing Nazi salutes for less than ten minutes in a public square is cowardly and a deliberate effort to provoke disorder. This group is not a dying vestige of British neo-Nazism but a new, young movement and we are pleased that Northumbria Police are taking this incident so seriously. Enough is enough and this brazenly criminal group must be brought to justice. That young British people are openly idolising Adolf Hitler in Britain in the days before Holocaust Memorial Day is a reminder that for us to say ‘Never again’ with any confidence, we must be vigilant and fight antisemitic racism ruthlessly.”

A spokesman for Northumbria Police told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “Northumbria Police is carrying out enquiries into the protest that was held at Monument in Newcastle City centre at 1:55pm on Saturday, January 23. We had no prior warning that the protest was due to take place and city centre officers attended immediately after receiving information that it was happening. Upon officers’ arrival the demonstration had ended and we believe it lasted less than 10 minutes. We have received one report of assault and we are in the process of investigating this along with looking into whether any other offences may have taken place. Detectives are checking CCTV footage from the city centre area and material posted on social media and enquiries are ongoing.”

Czech police investigate extremist party leader over antisemitic incitement

Two nationalist Czech politicians have been accused of leaving an antisemitic text at the grave of a woman whose murder in the 19th century was wrongly blamed on a Jewish man. Adama Bartoše,  the National Democracy (ND) movement’s extra-parliamentary chairman, and ND member Ladislav Zemanek are known to have visited the grave of Anezka Hruzova, murdered in 1899, last Easter on the anniversary of her death.

Bartoše and Zemanek displayed a sign with a photograph of the murdered woman and a text reading: “Her death cemented the Czech nation and it showed the urgent necessity to solve the Jewish question. The Jewish question has not been resolved in a satisfactory manner yet.”

Leopold Hilsner, from the local Jewish ghetto in Polna, was convicted of murdering the 19-year-old Hruzova, a Christian woman, and sentenced to death, a punishment later commuted to life imprisonment. He was pardoned in 1918. The case provoked an outbreak of antisemitism, which included the claim that it was a ritual murder.

Bartoše has previously attracted headlines for suggesting that refugees be housed in the Theresienstadt concentration camp.

Michal Dolezel, Brno’s councillor for the Live Brno political movement, has filed a legal complaint against Bartoše and Zemanek.

Regional police spokeswoman Dana Cirtkova said the police had launched criminal proceedings.

Senior Palestinian official continues attempt to revive mediaeval antisemitic blood libel

Top Palestinian official, Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen, has become the latest Palestinian leader to repeat the modern version of the blood libel. Originating in England in the 1100s and spreading across Europe, the blood libel was the accusation that Jews kidnapped and murdered the Christian children to use their blood as part of their religious rituals. The Palestinian leadership has renovated this vile myth and now claims that Israeli Jews harvest the organs of dead Palestinians.

Speaking on official Palestinian television, Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen said: “There are Israeli testimonies acknowledging that organs are being taken from the bodies of young Martyrs. While the body is with the Israelis, organs are taken according to Israel’s needs, and afterwards they hand over the body with conditions…including not allowing the body to be autopsied, in order to cover it up.”

Every part of the statement is false, other than that Israel really does hand over the bodies of Palestinians, despite the fact that they were usually killed whilst perpetrating a terrorist act against Israelis.

Saudi TV interview begins: “The Jews are today’s plague, a malignant disease,” then just gets worse

A viciously antisemitic television interview in Saudi Arabia has been brought to light by MEMRI. The interview begins with anchor Majed Ababutin declaring: “The Jews are today’s plague, a malignant disease. Their history is black, and their stories are stained with bloodshed.”

The interview with Saudi cleric Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid gets worse from there. Al-Munajid tells viewers: “The Jews are at the top of the list of enemies. The Jews of today are the same as the Jews of yesterday. This does not require any proof. Allah has shown us their traits, and the Prophet Muhammad has told us that our battle with them will continue until the end of time, when they will be led by the Antichrist…Treachery courses through the veins [of the Jews] like blood.”

Ababutin then asks: “Does hatred of the Jews constitute a form of worship in and of itself?” Al-Munajid responds: “The question is: Do they hate us? This is a nation that believes that anyone not of their religion is an impure pig. This appears word for word in their false Torah. The Jews have the right to rape non-Jewish women. It appears in their scriptures. They are arrogant people. They say: ‘We are the beloved sons of God.’ I don’t have anything personal against the Jews. Not at all. Our hatred of them stems from their having cursed Allah. They are polytheists. In their Talmud, they say that the rabbis are the masters of God, and that He must do as they say…They say that for three hours each morning, Allah plays with the king of the fish.”

Continuing his questioning, Ababutin asks: “Many Muslims were put to the test by having to live alongside the Jews, in the West or even in Palestine. To what extent is there coexistence with the Jews? What are the sharia rulings regarding coexistence with the Jews?” Al-Munajid answered: “First of all, we call them to join the belief in Allah. We call every infidel, no matter how much we despise him, to Allah. We would like him to follow the true guidance. Secondly, if there had been dhimma relations between us, and they paid the jizya poll tax and lived under the protection of the Muslims, it would have been impermissible for us to do them an injustice or harm them…The Jews were ostracised. In the Ukraine and some other countries, when they saw what the [Jews] had done, they took them and threw them over the border. They were ostracised. But now that the Islamic caliphate has grown weaker and disintegrated, the Basel Congress was convened, and they implemented the Protocols [of the Elders of Zion], and the Crusaders collaborated with them following Balfour…Their state was established, and we became victims.”

Man charged with fire-bombing Islamic centre reported to hold antisemitic views and idolise far-right terrorist

It has been reported that Carl James Dial, 23, of Palm Desert in California, has been charged with a hate crime offence, arson, maliciously setting a fire and second-degree burglary, after the Islamic Society of Coachella Valley was fire-bombed with a Molotov-cocktail earlier this month.

Dial’s Facebook account is reported to show him making an antisemitic remark about a kosher market and suggests he has a fascination with Norwegian, far-right terrorist Anders Behring Breivik. Behring Breivik killed eight people by setting off a van bomb in Oslo’s government quarter and then murdered 69 participants of a Workers’ Youth League (AUF) summer camp on the island of Utøya in 2011.

In an interview with NBC, Dial’s father, John Dial, appears to blame social media for his son, remarking, “Social media has produced people like my son, without person-to-person contact. I believe he was lacking in social skills.”

Coachella Mayor, Steven Hernandez, describes the fire-bombing as a “cowardly act of vandalism that we [will] not tolerate in our community.”

UK Islamist cell targets young women by glorifying ISIS and accusing “filthy Jews” of killing innocents

A documentary, The British Women Supporters Unveiled, which aired on Channel 4 in the UK, shows how a secret cell of British Islamist women is spreading antisemitic propaganda and encouraging young female Muslims to join ISIS.

The group, who were filmed in a year-long undercover operation, holds highly secretive meetings called Islamic Talks for sisters or Islamic Circles for women. In these meetings, they tell young Muslim women that Britain is waging a war against them and that those who do not support ISIS will be destroyed by Allah.

Some of these meetings are held in Government-funded community centres and take place in front of children.

One of the leading members is a mother of four, Rubana, who lives in London. She is a well-known extremist and has been an instrumental member of several, now-banned organisations, including al-Muhajiroun, which is said to have been behind 50% of UK terror plots, including the 7/7 London bombings and the Lee Rigby murder.

In a two-hour, covertly-filmed lecture, Rubana states that the “good days have already begun [because an Islamic State has been established].”

In a reference to the attacks against ISIS, she adds: “It’s not the first time nations have plotted against the believers. It’s not the first time the alliance has been formed like they have now with this coalition against the Khilafah [Islamic State]. But Allah one by one he will destroy them.”

She goes on to accuse “filthy Jews” of killing innocent Muslim women and children.

Another of the group is Umm Saalihah, has lived at the same address as Mohammed Shamsuddin, who was arrested last year on suspicion of encouraging terrorism and being a member of al-Muhajiroun.

On Twitter, Saalihah has said it is “necessary” to live under the khilafah.

A third woman, under the name Umm Usmaan, has tweeted: “Go to Sham (Syria) for it is the best of Allahs [sic] lands on earth.”

German court fines but does not imprison imam who preached “destroy the Zionist Jews…don’t spare a single one”

Danish imam Sheikh Abu Bilal Ismail has been found guilty of incitement to hatred, after calling for the murder of Jews at a mosque in Berlin in 2014.

A German court fined Abu Bilal Ismail €1,300 for comments he made during a sermon to al-Nur mosque. Situated in Berlin’s Neukölln district, the al-Nur mosque is widely considered a hotbed of radical Islamism.

Ismail told the packed audience to “destroy the Zionist Jews…,” and to “count them and kill them to the very last one. Don’t spare a single one…make them suffer.”

The verdict found that Abu Bilal Ismail had delivered a “hostile and hate-filled view toward Jews as a population in Germany,” and that he considered Jews as “criminals who kill prophets and children,” “worse than wild beasts in the jungle” and that “Allah should kill Jews.”

Ismail defended his speech by insisting the remark “Zionist Jews” was directed at Israeli soldiers fighting in the Gaza Strip last year. He also remarked that he lives peacefully alongside all religious groups in Denmark.

Palestinian UNRWA teachers continue to post incitement to violence against Jews with impunity

UNRWA employees are continuing to post antisemitic images calling for Jews to be stabbed, despite having been reprimanded for doing so by the agency.

A new report from the Geneva-based UN Watch highlights ten recent Facebook and Twitter posts by UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) teachers celebrating the murder of Jews.

One from an UNRWA English teacher, and graduate of the agency’s ethics course, named Suad Khalil Remawi states that “the Zionists and the Jews are sons of monkeys and pigs”. Another teacher called Mazen Abo Hady posted a photo of a Palestinian ripping through an Israeli flag with a blood-soaked knife.

UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer said the report’s purpose was to urge UNRWA to dismiss employees who engage in such incitement, and show the agency’s largest donors – the United States and the European Union – where their annual $1 billion is going.

“UNRWA’s reported temporary suspensions of offenders are clearly not working,” said Neuer. “Giving a slap on the wrist sends the message that it’s business as usual. Instead, those who incite to racism or murder should be fired, under a zero tolerance policy.”

Monday’s was the latest in a series of UN Watch reports on the matter, previous ones having led the UNRWA to state it would “take appropriate action, including disciplinary action, where violations by UNRWA staff members are established”.

UN Watch submitted the report to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, UNRWA chief Pierre Krähenbühl, EU foreign affairs commissioner Federica Mogherini and US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power.

Neuer added: “UNRWA’s strategy of impunity, denial and deflection only enables more incitement and violence. It’s time to put an end to the pattern and practice of UNRWA school principals, teachers and staff members posting antisemitic and terror-inciting images, a recurring theme that suggests a pathology of racism and violence within UNRWA, one that must be rooted out — and not buried, as UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness has attempted to do by calling for boycotts of newspapers or of NGOs that dare to report these incidents of hate.”

London School of Economics condemns exhibition of terrorists who stabbed Jews

The London School of Economics has condemned an exhibition by pro-Palestinian students which glorified Palestinian terrorists who have been stabbing Israeli Jews in a wave of antisemitic terrorism. It is surprising though that in condemning the exhibition, LSE suggested that the students might not have intended to celebrate the terrorists whose photographs were graphically displayed in the exhibition. It seems that the only purpose of the exhibition was to celebrate Palestinian terrorists who had been killed in self-defence by Israelis protecting themselves from attacks being perpetrated by the terrorists against any Jewish civilian they could find.

The full statement from LSE said:

The School was deeply troubled by the exhibition held by the Students’ Union Palestine Society in the Saw Swee Hock building in October 2015.

This is not a matter of free speech within the law, which the School is obliged to uphold across its premises: the law was not broken. Neither is it in itself a concern that offence was caused. The concern is that both the content of the exhibition and the manner in which it was displayed, together with related activities off campus and on social media, caused serious harm to relations between sections of our community on campus. The apparent celebration, even if unintended, of violence and perpetrators of violence caused significant distress to students who identify with victims of that violence.

As a university we are committed to encouraging the free exchange of ideas in an atmosphere of mutual respect. The School asks that all Students’ Union societies act with respect for the views and feelings of all their fellow students.

Hamas leader in Gaza repeats blood libel that Jews eat blood of non-Jewish children

Speaking on Hamas Al-Aqsa Television, Salah Al-Bardawil, a Hamas leader in Gaza, said that Jews had “ancient biblical beliefs, which instructed them to kill children and collect their blood, in order to knead it into the bread that is eaten on Passover.” He continued: “This is the killing of a Palestinian child in order to collect his blood and to knead it into the bread they eat.” The blood libel that Jews kidnap and murder non-Jewish children in order to use their blood for ritual purposes is a major theme in historic European persecution of Jews which is constantly repeated by Palestinian leaders as a means of incitement.

Canadian Islamic website suggests Israel is behind Paris atrocity and ISIS

An article on Crescent International, a Canadian website run by the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought has suggested that Israel was behind the terrorist attacks in Paris. An article titled “Paris attacks: Who done it?” speculates that likely author of the attack is Israel, which the article also claims is behind ISIS: “Who could be behind it? Of all the intelligence agencies, the one that stands out is the Zionist agency, Mossad. It has deep roots in France and has many facilitators in the country. What could be their motive? Simple. The US-Zionist-Saudi-backed takfiri terrorists are being degraded through Russian bombings. It may be a desperate move by the Zionists to force Western regimes to send their troops against the government of President Asad [sic]. His army has recently made gains against the terrorists and has recaptured a number of areas from their control.”

Crescent International usually echoes a pro-Iranian line, according to CIJ News.

Official Palestinian line on Paris terrorist attacks: Israel was behind it

Using classic antisemitic conspiracy theories, the Palestinian Authority has blamed Israel for the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. The official Palestinian Authority daily wrote:

The wise and correct thing is to look for who benefits. In short: They need to search the last place reached by the octopus arms of the Mossad… It is clear that its ‘Mossad’ will burn Beirut and Paris in order to achieve [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s goals. He, who challenged the master of the White House, hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world.

The official Facebook page of the Fatah party (the party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who is about to enter the eleventh year of his four-year term) warned:

As a people who suffer daily aggressions by Israel we understand the suffering of the injured and the families of those who were killed in a cold blood…It is time to end the brutal Israeli occupation which breeds violence in the entire world.

These two extracts are only two of an avalanche of accusation from official Palestinian channels over the weekend.

Antisemitic website results in first online hate crime conviction in almost 10 years in Canadian province

The 68-year-old grandfather who authored has become the first person to be convicted of online hate crime for almost a decade in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Arthur Topham, whose website demonised Jews and promoted antisemitic conspiracy theories will be sentenced early next year. One article on the website described “synagogues of Satan” whilst another “satirically” called for “the extermination of Israel and all Jews” according to the prosecution. Topham’s legal defence was funded by white supremacists. A bizarre detail of the story is that Topham’s wife is apparently Jewish.

Report reveals UNRWA employees’ incitement against Jews

A report into antisemitism among staff at the UN Relief and Works Agency has highlighted a series of disturbing recent posts on Facebook.

Hani Al Ramahi, who describes himself as a “Projects Support Assistant at UNRWA”, posted an image on October 8th in which a keffiyeh-clad man grasps a blood-covered knife bearing the Palestinian colours. The caption reads: “Stab Zionist dogs.”

Two days earlier on October 6th, fellow UNRWA employee Ibrahim Ali, who lives in Hebron, posted a series of videos on his timeline that glorify the shootings and stabbings of Israeli Jews.

Um Karam, who identifies himself as a teacher at UNRWA, posted the widely-distributed video of a sermon in which Sheikh Abu Rajab pulled out a knife and exhorted Palestinians to murder Jews in the name of Islam. And on October 4th an UNRWA employee named Saleh Mohsen celebrated the outbreak of such stabbing attacks against Israelis by calling for a “West Bank Intifada”.

These are only four of numerous similar cases highlighted by the report – for more details click here.
