Mourning The Passing Of Robert Wistrich

The leading scholar of antisemitism has died at the age of 70.

Robert S. Wistrich, one of the world’s foremost scholars of anti-Semitism, died late Tuesday evening after suffering a heart attack in Rome, where he was due to address the Italian Senate about rising anti-Semitism in Europe.

Wistrich, 70, was the Neuburger Professor of European and Jewish history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the head of the University’s Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism.

Over the course of his career, Wistrich edited and published dozens of books about the fate of Jews and their treatment by other nations.

Among his notable works was the 1989 book “The Jews of Vienna in the age of Franz Joseph,” which won the Austrian State Prize in History. Two years later he published “Antisemitism: The Longest Hatred,” which later served as the basis for a three-hour British-American television documentary on anti-Semitism.

His book “A Lethal Obsession: Antisemitism — From Antiquity to the Global Jihad,” published in 2010, was awarded the Best Book of the Year Prize by the New-York based Journal for the Study of Antisemitism.

In 2014, Wistrich authored an exhibition titled “The 3,500 year relationship of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel,” which was scheduled for display at UNESCO headquarters in Paris but was canceled amid pressure from Arab nations.

At the time, Wistrich said that the cancellation “completely destroyed any claim that UNESCO could possibly have to be representing the universal values of toleration, mutual understanding, respect for the other and narratives that are different, engaging with civil society organizations and the importance of education. Because there’s one standard for Jews, and there’s another standard for non-Jews, especially if they’re Arabs, but not only.”

The exhibit eventually reopened six months later after the phrase “Land of Israel” in the title was replaced with “Holy Land.”
[note: I’ve noted that Christians tend to refer to Israel as “the holy land” and assumed that was benign. I know understand the politics behind the phrase. – Aggie]

In July 2014 Wistrich was invited to address an emergency Knesset meeting on rising violent anti-Semitism and anti-Israel activities in Europe, during which he warned that “we have entered a new, very difficult era in all of Europe.”

Wistrich was born in Lenger, in the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic, on April 7, 1945. His parents had fled anti-Semitism in Poland a few years early but were met with similar animosity in the Soviet Union, where his father was twice arrested by the secret police.

After World War II ended, the family returned to Poland but found the lingering hatred of Jews unbearable and so relocated to France and from there to England. At the age of 17 Wistrich won an open scholarship in history to Queens’ College, Cambridge, eventually earning his masters degree in 1969, followed by a doctorate at the University of London in 1974. During his university years he founded a literary and arts magazine.

Between 1974 and 1980, he worked as director of research at the Institute of Contemporary History and the Wiener Library and was then appointed a research fellow of the British Academy. In 1982 he was given tenure at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

This is sad for the Jewish community, and, I suppose for anyone who is interested in history.

Re: Jews In France. Let’s Discuss Jews In Chicago. Oh, And Changes In The NY Times

BTL’s post below got me to go to the Aruz Sheva site, where I noticed an article about the fact that Jews in Chicago are now hiring off-duty cops to protect them from thugs. On the north side of Chicago, by the way, where you don’t expect to find this problem. So, curious as always, I googled: antisemitism Chicago. And came up with this completely fascinating article from the NY Times, an op-ed, written in 1988. What a difference 27 years makes!!

I am reprinting this in full, because it is so surprising on so many levels. As you read, ask yourself these questions: Would the NY Times ever print something like this today? Would they ever call out black antisemitism? And BTL, now we can fully understand why we once considered ourselves to be liberals, why the NY Times was once the go-to paper to understand the world.

CHICAGO— Virulent anti-Semitism has gripped Chicago’s black community. Nobody morally powerful enough to try to combat it, including the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who lives here, has attempted to do so.

It is so poisonous that the Rev. Andrew Greeley, a Roman Catholic priest and writer and a Chicagoan, has said, ”If I were Jewish, I would be terrified.” The Rev. John Egan, a priest who for 40 years has fought for racial and religious equality, said that ”the anguish and anger of Jews” in Chicago is ”real and deep.”

Mr. Jackson rightfully presents himself as a keeper of the nation’s conscience. Why has he remained silent? As he campaigns for Gov. Michael S. Dukakis, what conclusions can Jewish voters in Chicago – indeed, across the nation – draw from that silence?

Chicago’s most prominent black anti-Semite is Steve Cokely, who was dismissed in May as an aide to the acting Mayor, Eugene Sawyer, for astonishing anti-Jewish and anti-Christian speeches.

Mr. Cokely charged that Jews are involved in an international conspiracy to control the world and that ”the AIDS epidemic is a result of doctors, especially Jewish ones, who inject AIDS into blacks.” He has attacked Mr. Jackson, whom he calls ”the nigger,” and the late Mayor Washington for having Jewish advisers.

In addition, Mr. Cokely has asserted that the crucifix is a ”symbol of white supremacy” and that the Illinois law requiring children to remain in school until age 16 exists to promote white control of blacks.

Chicago’s leaders have ominously been silent about Mr. Cokely. Only after local newspapers broke the story did Mayor Sawyer, behaving like a man forced to drink poison in public, dismiss him.

Afterward, charging that he was the object of a plot, Mr. Cokely accepted a job with the Rev. Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, who remarked that Mr. Cokely had offended Jewish leaders only ”because the truth hurts.”

The other day, Mr. Cokely underwent a public rehabilitation when he was invited to appear before the City Council’s health committee, whose chairman is Alderman Allan Streeter, a black. It was Mr. Streeter who, after a controversial painting of Mr. Washington attired in female undergarments was forcibly removed from a student exhibit at the school of the Art Institute in mid-May, charged, erroneously, that ”the fellow who drew that picture is Jewish.”

In the May issue of his newsletter to his constitutents, Mr. Streeter said the Anti-Defamation League has a ”hit list” of ”African-American leaders,” and criticized the ”continued Jewish dominance of the news media.”

To its credit, the overwhelming majority of the black community rejects Mr. Cokely, according to a Chicago Tribune poll. But that has not stopped black leaders from cynically stirring embers of anti-Semitism in the streets like sparks in the stubble of the dried-out Midwestern cornfields.

Many Chicagoans have been upset by the continuing defense of Mr. Cokely by black political activists and other spokesmen of the black community such as the Rev. B. Herbert Martin, who was subsequently named head of the Commission on Human Relations. Earlier, Mr. Martin had said that the black community felt there was ”a ring of truth” in Mr. Cokely’s remarks about a worldwide Jewish conspiracy, although he said he personally did not share this view. He had also said, ”There is a growing opinion among younger blacks, grassroot black people, that Jews are running things, that Jews are unfair, unloving.”

A state Representative, William Shaw, who is black, told The Chicago Defender, a black newspaper, that if the Jews ”target Martin, I will call for a boycott on everything dealing with the Jewish community.” He asserted that he did not want ”black leadership picked off one by one” by Jews, who ”have yet to explain Israel’s selling guns to the South African Government.” And he dismissed the Holocaust by saying, ”We went through our own.”

The Chicago Jewish community’s unrest has been fed in the past year by the defacing of the Holocaust memorial in suburban Skokie and in the vandalizing of several synagogues. It isn’t known who did this dirty work.

Moreover, last November, Mr. Cokely accused North Side Jewish merchants, on the 49th anniversary of ”Crystal Night” – the night the Nazis vandalized Jewish shops, offices and synagogues – of breaking their own windows in order to gain sympathy for themselves.

Black leaders’ failure to repudiate Mr. Cokely has underscored their willingness to tap into what they identify as a current of anti-Jewish feeling in their community.

What’s amazing is that, no matter how wild the charges, they all drop one by one into a void of near-quiet. For example, black politicians complain that Jewish merchants have long gouged blacks. In so doing, they imply that Jews’ enormous contributions to the black civil rights movement have counted for little in comparison to their history of exploiting blacks.

The onslaught of reckless accusations has left the community in general, and the Jewish community in particular, dumbfounded. When Jews have objected to them, they have been accused of trying to impose their will on the black community.

Mad as the entire series of incidents may be regarded, madder still is the failure of any but the State’s Attorney, Richard M. Daley, and editorial writers and columnists to denounce them.

In a mirror reflection of the opportunistic racism they have criticized in such white leaders as Edward R. Vrdolyak, black politicians cynically fan the anti-Jewish mood in their wards. Disingenuously, some argue that only suspicious and badly intentioned people would consider the charges harmful to Jews.

It all reminds me of the poet Charles Mauras’s defense of the forged documents used against Capt. Alfred Dreyfus in one of history’s most painful anti-Semitic episodes. They were, he wrote, an ”act of patriotic devotion,” done ”for the good and honor of all.”

Chicago is neither Germany of 50 years ago nor France of a century ago. But the anti-Semitism is exactly the same. Its themes of the evil, aggrandizing, ruthless Jew are identical with those that have surfaced wherever and whenever hatred of Jews has been manipulated for political purposes.

”The community is shocked into a catatonic state when it hears such barbarous falsehoods,” said the writer Saul Bellow, a Chicagoan.

In recent decades, we have indicted long-dead leaders of church and state, including prime ministers and popes – as well as American Jews -who failed to condemn the anti-Semitism that seemed to pile up around them while they were influential. We condemn them for not speaking out, imagining that we would be braver and more moral than they in comparable circumstances.

The dismaying fact remains that hardly any Chicagoan of major influence in government, religion, education and business has spoken out strongly, unambiguously and consistently against the anti-Semitism that has infected the city’s life. Everybody, it seems, has a good reason to remain quiet. Today, the loudest thing here is the silence greeting the ugliest experience that the city has suffered in a long time.

Look homeward, Jesse. This is where the ”common ground,” which you spoke about in your inspiring speech in Atlanta, begins.

File this under: Why I Am No Longer A Brain Dead Liberal. I’m not because liberalism died, apparently sometime between 1988 and 2001. It would be fascinating to find the exact moment (which probably doesn’t exist), or perhaps just the general time and change, the reason that the Left went from Liberalism as I knew it to the poisonous Progressivism of today.

Update: I did a bit more sleuthing. The NY Times gives Jesse Jackson a pass in the article I’ve posted. I therefore assumed that Jesse Jackson’s Hymietown remark happened post-1988. Nope He said it to a black Washington Post reporter in 1984.

Rev. Jesse Jackson referred to Jews as “Hymies” and to New York City as “Hymietown” in January 1984 during a conversation with a black Washington Post reporter, Milton Coleman. Jackson had assumed the references would not be printed because of his racial bond with Coleman, but several weeks later Coleman permitted the slurs to be included far down in an article by another Post reporter on Jackson’s rocky relations with American Jews.

A storm of protest erupted, and Jackson at first denied the remarks, then accused Jews of conspiring to defeat him. The Nation of Islam’s radical leader Louis Farrakhan, an aggressive anti-Semite and old Jackson ally, made a difficult situation worse by threatening Coleman in a radio broadcast and issuing a public warning to Jews, made in Jackson’s presence: “If you harm this brother [Jackson], it will be the last one you harm.”

Finally, Jackson doused the fires in late February with an emotional speech admitting guilt and seeking atonement before national Jewish leaders in a Manchester, New Hampshire synagogue. Yet Jackson refused to denounce Farrakhan, and lingering, deeply rooted suspicions have led to an enduring split between Jackson and many Jews. The frenzy also heightened tensions between Jackson and the mostly white establishment press.

Therefore, the NY Times was doing what they always do – shucking’ and jivin’.

Jerusalem Day

Maybe the Pope should listen to Bibi.

Jerusalem has historically only been the capital of the Jewish people, and so it will remain, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared Sunday at the government’s official Jerusalem Day Ceremony at Ammunition Hill.

“We need to tell the truth, without fear,” Netanyahu said. “This is where we began our path as a nation, this is our home, and this is where we will stay.”

Netanyahu, in comments that left no doubt as to whether he would agree to share the capital with a Palestinian state, said Israel will ensure that the city remains an open and tolerant city.

“Only under Israeli rule will there be freedom of worship for all religions in Jerusalem,” he said. “Believers pray at their holy sites not in spite of our rule in the city, but precisely because of it.”

The prime minister, who recalled growing up in a divided Jerusalem and catching a glimpse of the Old City through binoculars from certain vantage points in the capital, said it would never revert again to being “wounded and split.”

“We will forever preserve an undivided Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty,” he said.

“Who opposes our presence in Jerusalem,” he asked. “Those who refuse to recognize our right to exist as a sovereign nation in our own state. They see us as a foreign object that needs to be uprooted.”

So the savages are rioting. Let them.

Speaking Of Death Penalties…

Egypt has condemned former President, Mohammad Morsi, to death, according to NPR news.

I heard this on the radio, but an internet search fails to find it. Is it possible that NPR is wrong? Or that the rest of the media just isn’t interested? Let’s check the Israeli media. Here it is.

I don’t recommend clicking on it, however, because an ad with sound begins.

An Egyptian court on Saturday sought the death penalty for former president Mohamed Morsi and more than 100 other members of the Muslim Brotherhood in connection with a mass jail break in 2011.

Mursi and his fellow defendants, including the Brotherhood’s top leader Mohamed Badie, were convicted for killing and kidnapping policemen, attacking police facilities and breaking out of jail during the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak.

The court, expected to make a final ruling on June 2, also sought capital punishment for Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater and 15 others for conspiring with foreign militant groups against Egypt.

The cases, like all capital sentences, will be referred to Egypt’s top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, for an opinion before any executions can take place.

Morsi can appeal the verdict, although he has said the court is not legitimate, describing all legal proceedings against him as part of what he calls a coup staged by former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in 2013.

Let’s compare Egypt to Israel. Morsi was apparently convicted for releasing terrorists (Muslim Brotherhood, same thing as Hamas) from prison. Who else used to do that? Why Yasser Arafat, of course! He famously had a revolving door, putting people behind bars for the media, and then releasing them within hours or days. Arafat, you may recall, received the Nobel Peace Prize. Did Israel execute Arafat? Nope. Nor did they execute any of the people who planned the suicide attacks, delivered the bombs, strapped them onto the “martyrs”. And today his successor was referred to as an “angel of peace” by the current Pope. Don’t even get me started on church history regarding Jews.

Interesting that in two days we have two examples of death sentences passed down on terrorists. Arguably citizens of either the most “progressive” city in America (or the second most “progressive”, next to San Francisco), decided to kill the tossel-haired youth who admitted to killed four people in Boston/Cambridge. That’s a low yield compared to Nobel Prize Winner, Yasser Arafat. Or Morsi, for that matter. What a cynical world this is.

What Is The Difference Between The Way The World Reacted To The Nazis And The Way The World Is Responding To Iran?

I phrased that title poorly. I should have asked if the Left has learned anything yet. Have academics learned anything? Have church leaders learned anything? Have journalists learned anything? Have academics learned anything? But you see my problem; the whole thing gets too long.

To refresh our memories, Hitler wrote a book, Mein Kampf, (My Struggle), in which he lays out his plans to slaughter all the Jews in the world, as well as other Undermenschen (sub-human people). The Anglican Church in England was a big fan. Harvard and various other universities invited his representatives to be feted on college campuses. Charles Lindburgh, the hero of the era, flew to Germany to shake hands and enjoy camaraderie. Father Coughlin, the big Catholic radio guy loved him and hated Jews, week after week on the airways. The Polite Protestant crowd politely opined that Hitler wasn’t serious. The New Yorker wrote about Hitler’s vegetarianism and bachelorhood but avoided mention of his genocidal Jew hatred. I could go on, but the record of American and European indifference is obvious. Oh, one more, the mainline Protestant magazine, Christian Century, wrote throughout the war that Jews who had managed to escape and who tried to tell the world about the genocide were fabricating. And liberal Jews blamed conservative Jews for making trouble and for embarrassing them with their angry outbursts. That is the record.

Today is so different. Iran has repeatedly said that it plans to wipe Israel off the map, and that this is God’s plan. The Israeli leadership has done everything in its power to make the world aware of the threat. The State Department claims that Iran is just exaggerating. The President ignores the fears, and routinely attacks Jews building apartments in Jerusalem, as if that is the biggest threat to world peace. In academia, Harvard and others invite Iranian pooh-bahs to speak to their students, and treat them with respect. The American Friends (Quakers) threw a big dinner party for Achmedinijiad (so glad we don’t have to spell that name so often anymore) after he spoke at the UN a few years ago. He explained there that there are no gays in Iran. And that they were going to destroy Israel. But on college campuses, Israel is the problem, right? Liberal politicians did not even attend Netanyahu’s address to Congress in March. (Elizabeth, I will NEVER vote for you, take the trade bill and put it where the sun don’t shine, honey. -Aggie) And saddest of all, liberal Jews in both instances, now and in the 40’s, refused to speak up for their brethren in foreign lands.

So, what is the difference? From where I stand (in Massachusetts) not much. But if you are Israeli, you know that you have a competent military and this time there will be a real fight.

Hey BTL! Let’s Give Our Coveted ‘Ya Think?™ Award To The UN!

This is a profound insight

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday he deplores that a UN inquiry found “Israeli actions” killed at least 44 Palestinians and injured some 227 more at UN premises being used as emergency shelters during the 2014 Gaza conflict.

“It is a matter of the utmost gravity that those who looked to them for protection and who sought and were granted shelter there had their hopes and trust denied,” Ban wrote in his cover letter to a UN inquiry report into the incidents.

“I will work with all concerned and spare no effort to ensure that such incidents will never be repeated,” he said. [note to Ban Ki: One way to avoid repeating these problems is to eliminate the terrorists – Aggie]

In his letter Ban also said that Palestinian militant groups had put UN schools in Gaza at risk by hiding weapons in three locations that were not being used as shelters.

“The fact that they were used by those involved in the fighting to store their weaponry and, in two cases, probably to fire from is unacceptable,” Ban said.

Last July, during Operation Protective Edge, the UN said it was investigating how 20 rockets ended up in one of its vacant schools in Gaza, which were closed for summer vacation.

The rockets were found during a regular inspection by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees of its facilities.

On second thought, I cannot issue the award, because the UN is still blaming the victim – Israel. But they are accurate in their assessment that it would be better not to hide weapons in schools. Jeesh.

More Arab Terror In Jerusalem

How to stop Arabs from running over Jews? Take away the keys?

Three Border Police officers were hospitalized after being struck by a car in east Jerusalem’s A-Tur neighborhood Saturday night in what police are deeming a terrorist attack.

According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, one of the officers is in moderate-to-serious condition, while the other two are in light-to-moderate condition. All three were treated at the scene by Magon David Adom paramedics before being rushed to an area hospital, he said.

As of 11 p.m. he said the suspect has not been apprehended.

“Police have blocked off roadways in A-Tur and are actively searching for the suspect,” he said.

Last week a Palestinian from east Jerusalem was arrested for for running over and killing Shalom Yohai Cherki, 25, and seriously injuring a young woman in the capital.

Under investigation the suspect told police that he was intent on “seeking out Jews to murder.”

Prediction: One of these days, someone will figure out how to stop this. And the solution probably won’t win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Pound Sand, Jimmy!

Israeli President, Rivlin, refuses to meet with Jimmy Carter.

President Reuven Rivlin has refused to meet with former US president Jimmy Carter during his upcoming visit to the region, due to his stances over recent years seen as “anti-Israel.”

In recent years, Carter has become one of the most prominent critics of Israel, notably when during last summer’s war with Hamas he denounced the IDF’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza as illegitimate.

An Israeli diplomatic official told The Jerusalem Post’s Hebrew sister publication Ma’ariv that the Foreign Ministry recommended Rivlin not meet with Carter, in order to transmit the message that those who harm Israel will not meet with the president.

Carter is the 2nd worst President in modern American history. I think we all know who the worst is.

The US And Iran Just Can’t Seem To Agree On What They’ve Agreed To…

But this unprecedented agreement will be agreed to soon…

Iran’s military sites will never be open for inspection under a comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers, Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported a senior Iranian commander as saying.

Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Friday that Iranian officials have already announced “clearly and explicitly” their opposition to the inspection of the country’s military and defense facilities, Tasnim reported.

According to the report, Jayazeri dismissed US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter as “lacking in understanding” with regard to his claim that a final deal on Iran’s nuclear program would include inspection of Iran’s military facilities.

My bet is on Iran. Ashton Carter probably is “lacking in understanding” and god knows what else.

Germany Planning To Makes Lots Of Money From Iran Deal

Germany sells its soul from money

BERLIN – German companies are hoping to win billions of euros worth of business from Iran after world powers reached a preliminary nuclear accord with Tehran, and Germany’s engineering body urged banks to revise their business policies towards Iran.

The tentative agreement struck on Thursday opens the way for a settlement to allay Western fears that Iran could build an atomic bomb, with economic sanctions on Tehran being lifted in return. But difficult details still need to be worked out before a self-imposed June deadline.

“German businesses see the agreement as an encouraging sign,” Felix Neugart, a foreign trade expert at Germany’s DIHK Chambers of Commerce and Industry, told Reuters.

I’ll just be they’re encouraged.

State Department, Obama Tried To Throw Israeli Election

and “non-profit” group in charge of interference applied to new tax status as soon as Congress began investigation

We knew this, but here is further proof. The slimes filed for a different tax exempt status as soon as Senator Cruz began asking questions:

The American nonprofit OneVoice Movement – under scrutiny by a U.S. Senate panel over possible links to a campaign to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – quietly filed paperwork that would allow it to engage in political activism after two leading Republican lawmakers questioned its use of government funds, FoxNews.com has learned.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., sent a letter Jan. 29 to Secretary of State John Kerry asking whether the group ­– as a recipient of almost $350,000 in recent grants from the Obama administration’s State Department – had violated its tax-exempt status when it began backing the virulently anti-Netanyahu Victory 15 campaign in Israel earlier that month.

Cruz also publicly asked whether Obama – who’s had a well-documented adversarial relationship with Netanyahu – had “launched a political campaign against” the Israeli leader in the run-up to the election which was held on Tuesday.

“What does it say about the President of the United States when he’s more concerned about undermining and attacking the prime minister of Israel than he is standing up to the mortal threat a nuclear Iran poses?”- Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-Texas)
OneVoice, which until November was headed by a veteran diplomat from the Clinton administration, quickly bushed off claims from critics that its backing of V15 meant it was targeting Netanyahu. Such an effort would be illegal under its tax-exempt status, which falls under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Just five days after the public dispatch of the Cruz-Zeldin letter, a “corporation service company” registered a new funding entity in Delaware called PeaceWorks Action, Inc. under a section of the tax code that still governs nonprofits, but allows them to engage in a limited amount of political activity. Listed under section is 501(c)4 of the tax code, PeaceWorks Action, Inc. is now featured on the OneVoice Website as one of OneVoice’s funders, alongside PeaceWorks Foundation, whose name has long been present, and which holds 501(c)3 status like OneVoice itself.

Critics are likely to see the registration as tacit admission that it had indulged in political activity alongside V15, which itself has been advised by former Obama campaign aides, including his top field organizer, Jeremy Bird.

Critics will see a tacit admission? How about people in possession of a brain will see it as an admission of wrong-doing? How can you not see this?

Arab Terrorists Attack Bus, Injure Israeli Children

Let’s give them a country!

A two-year-old boy and six-year-old girl were lightly wounded by shards of glass during a rock attack on the Egged bus they were traveling in near Pisgat Ze’ev in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

According to spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, as the bus was driving down Route 1 past French Hill at approximately 4:30 p.m., Arab suspects threw several large rocks at it, forcing the driver to pull over and evacuate the passengers.

The two children sustained cuts during the attack and were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics before being transferred to Shaare Zedic Medical Center in Jerusalem, Rosenfeld said. No other injuries were reported. Police are searching the area for the suspects, he said.

Nice, peace-loving people.
