Denouncing Israeli occupation, internment and murder of the Palestinian people in Gaza isnt marching with any religion inspired philosophy, its being human and being shocked by criminality and pogroms.

Some extracts from an article by Melanie Phillips in this week's Spectator ~~ posted simultaneously on the 'Small Hope' & 'Caliphate' threads:

Every time Israel takes military action to prevent further Palestinian attacks, it is falsely presented as the aggressive persecutor of the innocent.
Unless British Jews join this demonisation, they are deemed complicit with Israel's 'war crimes'. As a result, attacks on British Jews always spike during Israel's wars. So much for the supposed distinction between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. [MGM's emphasis]
Anti-Semitism singles out Jews for treatment applied to no other people: the application of double standards, false claims they are committing crimes of which they are instead the victims, and demonic conspiratorial powers. This is precisely the treatment applied to Israel.
But then the left marches side by side with Islamists, who are committed to the persecution of gays and women, while it boycotts Israel, the only place in the Middle East where Muslims enjoy human rights.


I am aware that some, whom I shall not name but we all know who, will denounce this as the ravings of a well-known, & hence ignorable, right-orientated journo; & [probably not in as many words, but implied nonetheless] a fucking yiddie bitch at that.

But some of the human beings who occasionally visit this forum might find some food for a bit of thought.

There are several Middle East wars, all but one nothing to do with Israel.

"The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said about 1,240 soldiers and other Assad loyalists have been killed in the past 10 days in northern Syria.
(TEN DAYS!)

They are among more than 1,800 people killed in the same period — a record number of deaths since the uprising against Assad began in March 2011, according to Rami Abdurrahman, the Observatory's director.

Other activists in Syria confirmed that past weeks have seen a record death toll. Syria's three-year civil war has already killed more than 170,000 people, nearly a third of them civilians, according to activists."

Yousef made it crystal clear that Hamas doesn't just want to destroy the state of Israel, but wants a global caliphate on every inch of land around the world, and he said they will kill as many palestinians as they need to accomplish this goal."

Richard, Time magazine yesterday.

"Fatality figures provided by Hamas and other groups should be viewed with suspicion. Not only do Israeli figures cast doubt on claims that the vast majority of fatalities are non-combatants, but a careful review of Palestinian sources also raises doubts.

Analyses of the casualties listed in the daily reports published by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, a Gaza-based organization operating under Hamas rule, indicate that young males ages 17 to 30 make up a large portion of the fatalities, and a particularly noticeable spike occurs between males ages 21 to 27, a pattern consistent with the age distribution typically found among combatants and military conscripts. Palestinian sources attempt to conceal this discrepancy with their public message by labeling most of these young men as civilians. Only a minority is identified as members of armed groups. As a result, the PCHR calculates civilian fatalities at 82% as of July 26. PCHR provides the most detailed casualty reports of the various Palestinian agencies from Gaza that provide figures to the media and to international organizations like the UN. Its figures closely match those of the Hamas-run Gazan Health Ministry and other groups.

We have seen this before. A similar dispute over casualty figures occurred during Israel's "Operation Cast Lead" in the Gaza Strip in January 2009. The Israelis contended that the majority of the fatalities were combatants; the Palestinians claimed they were civilians. The media and international organizations tended to side with the Palestinians. The UN's own investigatory commission headed by Richard Goldstone, which produced the Goldstone Report, cited PCHR's figures along with other Palestinian groups providing similar figures. Over a year later, after the news media had moved on, Hamas Interior Minister Fathi Hammad enumerated Hamas fatalities at 600 to 700, a figure close to the Israeli estimate of 709 and about three times higher than the figure of 236 combatants provided by PCHR in 2009 and cited in the Goldstone Report.

The fact that Jewish/Israeli groups or persons may helped draft the document does not prima facie invalidate it. Jews and Israelis did not pass the resolution; governments or their committees did were signatories. Finally, interested parties (unions, chambers of commerce, ethnic and racial associations, gender groups) often take part, even lead, in drafting laws and resolutions which affect them, so why should not pro-Jewish groups?

When the world's fourth largest military power, with probably the world's fourth greatest potential for "surgical precision" kills more women and children than combatants, and pretends that combatants in possibly the world's most densely populated area (into which ghetto that power forced the people of those combatants) are hiding behind human shields, one can only be aghast at the inhumanity and indeed the bullying. To say that one is so aghast is precisely to hold Israel to the standards of civilised nations.

"The terrorist group the Islamic State, an al Qaida off shoot that has taken over large swaths of Iraq in recent months, told Christians in the Iraqi city of Mosul they had to convert to Islam by July 18 or they would be killed, according to the Economist. The only other option they were given was to leave Mosul, a city which has had a Christian presence for nearly two millennia. So thousands of Christians have now fled the city in fear for their lives.

Here is that "working definition" .

It does not take a doctorate in philosophy or law to see that some bits of it are manifest nonsense to the extent that it would be sensible to consider them self-serving nonsense.

Quote begins: -

Working definition: "Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities."
In addition, such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for "why things go wrong." It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.
Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:
Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.
Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.
Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
Examples of the ways in which antisemitism manifests itself with regard to the State of Israel taking into account the overall context could include:
Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.
Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.
However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic.
Antisemitic acts are criminal when they are so defined by law (for example, denial of the Holocaust or distribution of antisemitic materials in some countries).
Criminal acts are antisemitic when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property – such as buildings, schools, places of worship and cemeteries – are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Jewish or linked to Jews.
Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries.

Quote ends.

While Richard Bridge may not accept the EUMC's definitions, for his own reasons, the following bodies do not share his opinion:

    The State Department report on Global Antisemitism in 2008 included the following: The EUMC's working definition provides a useful framework for identifying and understanding the problem and is adopted for the purposes of this report

    The Working Definition of Antisemitism was cited by the US State Department's Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism in testimony given to the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (in Helsinki) in 2011, and is currently endorsed on the State Department's 'Monitoring and Combating Antisemitism' page.

    The Working Definition of Antisemitism was endorsed by the London Declaration of the Inter Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Antisemitism in 2009.

    In 2010, the UK All-Party Inquiry into antisemitism recommended that the Working Definition of Antisemitism should be adopted and promoted by the Government and law enforcement agencies.

    The UK National Union of Students renewed their support for the Working Definition of Antisemitism in 2013.

    An official document published by the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) recommends the Working Definition of Antisemitism as a valuable hate crime data collection tool for law enforcement agencies, and for educators.

    The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly has formally recognized the Working Definition of Antisemitism.

    The Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Antisemitism (ICCA) which took place in Ottawa in November, 2010, attended by Parliamentarians and experts from over 50 countries around the globe reaffirmed the EUMC's working definition of Antisemitism.

Since the 15th March 2011 in Syria on the other hand over 251,000 have been killed, perhaps if they were being killed by the IDF the pain and suffering in Syria would be ended that much more rapidly Musket?

As for this bit of nonsense:

"The UN not only tells Israel to stop but asks The USA to stop vetoing the implementation of the sanctions catered for in the many resolutions against Israel"

Ehmmmm Musket it is the resolution that is vetoed not the implementation of it. If the resolution is vetoed it no longer exists, i.e. there is no longer a resolution to implement.

Second time you have tried to push this complete and utter load of bollocks - didn't pass the first time - ain't passing on the second.

By the way who speaking for the UN told the United States of America when and when it could not use its veto powers? Don't sweat too much on that, I am not really expecting an answer.

Simple.

Decent people don't confuse the two, as anti semitism isn't intended. it takes malicious intent to confuse the two.

Thanks for reading this.

Apologies, Richard, if I misattributed a previous post to you. But I think the points I made in my last post still apply, and I should be glad if anyone could attempt an answer to the question I put:-

In absence of confidence in EUMC/FRA Report, has anyone any suggestion as to how to distinguish proper criticism of Israel's conduct from disguised antisemitism?

Richard, you were quick to accuse me of Islamophobia, just because I have criticised Islamist extremists.

Meanwhile, The UN not only tells Israel to stop but asks The USA to stop vetoing the implementation of the sanctions catered for in the many resolutions against Israel.

Of course, Israel responds by stating the sanctions don't technically exist because of the US veto on implementation. Some people see this as mealy mouthed but you can see why they do it. Fools such as the supporters of aggression on this and similar threads fall for it and smugly decry The UN.

One nice thing about democracy is that such idiots don't count. There is enough intelligence in a civilised voting country such as The UK or Canada to moderate such scum.

MtheGM, you surely can read more accurately than that. I neither said nor implied that antisemitism (which does exist) "does frequently masquerade as legitimate criticism of Israel".

The difficulty (in the abstract) of defining antisemitism lies, it seems to me, of distinguishing prejudice on the one hand from learning by experience on the other.

The point is important because of the root meaning of the word "prejudice". It implies pre-judgment.   

This may perhaps be compared to pre-judgments of other kinds. If it is wrong to state of imply that Jews are likely to have characteristic X then it is equally wrong to state or imply that Palestinians are likely to have characteristic Y. The issue becomes more complex when on speaks of religions. To be Jewish may mean two things, and they are not the same. It may mean simply that one is born of a Jewish mother (it is, culturally, matrilineal) or it may mean that one adheres to Judaism as a religion. Only the latter is a matter of choice. When speaking, however, of Muslims there is as far as I know no requirement of birth of a particular lineage.

Over to anyone who wants to discuss the issue rationally (preferably with relation to the probability and consequences of establishment of a Caliphate).

But before I go, one last comment at Poo-bad. FFS, man, go and READ the definition you love so much. Can you not see that it is a muddle, a mess, and fundamentally short on objectively establishable application? Surely you can do better than Goofball (is it Goofball I am thinking of?) and the laughable attempts to bring US medical care within a particular definition of genocide. Read teh words and think about them.

Whatever the rights & wrongs of the authenticity & objectivity of the EUMC/Fundamental Rights Agency definition, my confidence in which I must admit somewhat shaken by SRS's post above, it is surely idle to deny that antisemitism, as even Richard appears above to agree, does nowadays frequently masquerade as legitimate criticism of Israel (for which there is indeed plenty of room with much of their current MO, a great disappointment to those who have striven for its existence and always wished it well, as I have frequently posted). So, absent confidence in EUMC/FRA Report, has anyone any suggestion as to how to distinguish proper criticism of Israel's conduct from disguised antisemitism?

Feeding the aims of the caliphate, Israel is creating a "buffer zone" in Gaza, 40 percent of the territory, confining an already over-crowded populace that includes one million refugees into an even narrower strip.
Bombing hospitals and civilian housing, killing over 1000 Palestinians (only a handful of Israelis killed in return), is turning world opinion against Israel and feeding extremists.

By the way, Boo, the thread topic is the Caliphate. Do you have anything to say about that or are you only fixated on Israel?

From what I gather most of the civilized world accepts the EUMC criteria.

From what you gather FROM WHERE? Your own asshole? Or from other hate-mongering fanatics like yourself?

That is your opinion and, as the saying goes, opinions are like assholes (arseholes to you) everybody has one. From what I gather most of the civilized world accepts the EUMC criteria. The Jew haters of the world obviously do not.

PS. Nobody denies that antisemites do exist. Trying to expand the definition so that in effect it means "anyone I say is an antisemite is an antisemite" actually hinders attempts to reduce discrimination.

I have previously pointed out that the most superficial reading of the DRAFT definition that Poo-bad so loves shows it to be arrant nonsense that simply fails, as a definition, to define at all.
