Where does Iranâ€™s quest to hurry up the production of uranium centrifuges for its alleged nuclear weapons program and global anti-Semitism meet? Ahh heck, it’s not that much of a brain teaser. Both processes, you see, are propagating at a formidably quick pace, and to our dismay, are not being met by fierce resistance. Days before Israelis observed Yom HaShoah, the Islamic Republic marked its National Nuclear Day. That’s right, they have a holiday dedicated to nuclear energy.
Israeli diplomats in Germany go to lengths to highlight the fact that the Iranian â€œnuclear clockâ€ ticks at a faster rate in Israel because of the Islamic Republicâ€™s seemingly constant outbursts of violent rhetoric aimed at the Jews.
The European reaction to the Holocaust, is not vanishing, but instead turned into a kind of envy. Europeans frequently view Iran’s genocidal threats against the Jewish Country, not as a lesson learned that it is ethical to stop Iranâ€™s deadly mix of anti-Semitism and atomic weaponry
“but as a way to make use of the annihilation of European Jewry during World War II as a catharsis to alleviate their guilt-ridden history”
wrote Benjamin Weinthal in the Jerusalem Post.
Last March, Germans depicted todayâ€™s Muslims as the new persecuted Jews of post-Holocaust Germany at a rally against â€œIslamophobiaâ€ in front of the largest mosque in the country, located in Duisburg. 6,000 protesters from left-liberal political affiliations and organizations such as churches, trade unions, and anti-fascist groups â€“ some donned striped pajamas bearing the Star of David â€“ rallied against right-wing extremists groups.
The link between European leftists and political Islam to promote a hatred of Israel was the subject of the new anti-Semitism study released Sunday by Tel Aviv Universityâ€™s Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism, illustrating a huge spike in anti-Semitic violence in 2009.
The report, which only gauged physical violence and not verbal aggression, stated that the number of attacks increased from 559 in 2008 to 1,129 in 2009. The United Kingdom is currently the main source of anti-Semitic violence, with 374 acts compared to 112 in 2008. Anti-Jewish violence in France reached 195 attacks from 50 in the previous year.
In late March in Germany, two men and a woman were asked if they are Jews and then savagely beaten by what appeared to be Muslims. The Berlin Jewish community issued a statement sounding the
â€œurgent need to fight the roots of anti-Semitism, especially coming from young Turks and Arabs, and to effectively counter it.â€
Swedish Jews have been fleeing the southern city of MalmÃ¶ because of anti-Jewish violence and hostility. The Social Democratic Mayor, Ilmar Reepalu has aligned himself with a contingent of fanatically anti-Semitic Muslims and condemned the Jewish community for deciding â€œto hold a pro-Israel demonstrationâ€ during Operation Cast Lead, last year.
In Norway, it is reported that Jewish students are subjected to violence and harassment linked to Muslim students. Socialist Education Minister Kristin Halvorsenâ€™s verbal attacks against Israel and her efforts to delegitimize the Jewish Country through boycotts, has contributed to an unmistakably anti-Semitic climate in the country.
