"Horrifying footage has emerged showing Sunni insurgents of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) beheading a police officer.

In a shocking piece of footage - too graphic to publish - fighters are seen knocking on the door of a Sunni police major in the dead of night before they blindfold and cuff him.

They then carve off his head with a knife in his own bedroom as religious hymns are played in the background.

After the decapitation, the militants took a picture of the officer's head and posted it on Twitter with the comment: "This is our ball. It's made of skin #WorldCup."

"Death to the Jews" chanted the crowd waving the black flags of the Islamic State, or ISIS as it used to be known. They were looking for new supporters for their cause, the creation of a worldwide caliphate answering to the man who now calls himself Ibrahim: a zealot too radical even for Al Qaeda who has stormed through Syria and Iraq carrying out mass executions, crucifying rivals, beheading enemies. But these marchers were not in Syria or Iraq; they were in The Hague in The Netherlands. And their message was one tailored to the disaffected young descendants of Muslim immigrants in Europe."

No one in their right might would accept that document that you claim has such gravitas, bobad. And the Israelis who foist it upon others are over-representing what it is about.

You have to hunt to find criticisms of that group ("European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia"), but they're out there. The "definition" you clutch to your breast is a document written by a hyper-Israeli special interest group that is not the policy accepted by the European Union (though the name would suggest this illustrates a rhetorical category of false advertising).   

The story of the EU Monitoring Centre's 2005 draft working definition of anti-Semitism, a text so enthusiastically pushed by Israel advocates in California and beyond, is not well known — but it is illuminating.

Central to the emergence of the draft working definition was Ken Stern, anti-Semitism specialist at the American Jewish Committee. According to Stern, he developed the text "along with other experts during the second half of 2004"; his version is largely identical to the one published by the EU Monitoring Centre the following year ("Proposal for a redefinition of antisemitism," the Stephen Roth Institute, July 2005).

There are two other key figures in the backstory to the initiative. Ken Stern has credited Dina Porat, then head of the Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University, for having "first articulated" the idea "for a common definition" ("The Working Definition - A Reappraisal," Tel Aviv University, July 2011 [PDF]).

The other key figure is the American Jewish Committee's Andrew Baker who, according to Stern, had "smartly developed a working relationship" with the EU Monitoring Centre's then director Beate Winkler. Winkler was invited to address the AJC annual meeting in Washington in May 2004, where she told delegates that "the demonization of Israel and the denial of its right to exist are clearly anti-Semitic in our view" ("Confronting Anti-Semitism, Mobilizing Governments," AJC, 9 May 2004).

According to former Director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research and author Antony Lerman, Baker had been in contact with Winkler following controversy about a 2003 report abandoned by the EU Monitoring Centre because of problems that included the definition of anti-Semitism used ("EU Accused of Burying Report on Antisemitism Pointing to Muslim Role," Forward, 28 November 2003).

Baker proposed to Winkler "that she move quickly to convene a meeting of [Jewish leaders, activists and researchers]" to draft a satisfactory definition of anti-Semitism ("The Farcical Attack on the UCU For Voting Against Use of the EUMC 'Working Definition' of Antisemitism,'" antonylerman.com, 2 June 2011).

In Lerman's account, "[Baker] knew that those invited to the meeting would need to be broadly sympathetic to the concept of the 'new anti-Semitism' and … he was able to determine who attended."


Written by special hand-picked zealots, how could it work out any differently? And by the way, the group is no longer called EUMC. Based in Vienna, the center has subsequently been renamed the Fundamental Rights Agency. When you quote their dogma, be sure you name the group correctly.

Since its publication, the definition has been repeatedly cited by pro-Israel advocacy groups to attack Palestine solidarity activism, and used — in the words of Ken Stern himself, in the aforementioned Kantor Center's conference program — "with the subtlety of a mallet."

Israel lobbyists have often misrepresented the nature of the text and its contents. The Anti-Defamation League's Richard Barton, an author of the University of California "campus climate" report, has tried to convey the impression that the draft text has an official status by calling it the EU's definition of anti-Semitism ("Protests must not stray into anti-Semitism," San Francisco Chronicle, 23 August 2012).

A working group on "combating Anti-Semitism" at the Israeli government's 2009 Global Forum gathering, chaired by the Community Security Trust's Michael Whine, described the draft definition as "the European Union's own definition of anti-Semitism."

The definition has been invoked in a number of cases in bids to muzzle Palestine solidarity activism and speech, particularly on campus. Israeli Apartheid Week, an annual series of awareness-raising activities in universities throughout the world, has been singled out for special attention. (emphasis mine)

bobad people can be opposed to what Israel does as a nation, what the Israeli government does as a body, and even opposed to what individual jewish individuals do in the name of their religion (such as kidnapping and killing children or building more settlements) without being an anti-semite.

When your case (the one you, bobad, make against others here at mudcat) is so poor that the only answer you have in a dispute is to call the other party names, then you have no argument. Ad hominem attacks mean you're trying to distract by appealing to unrelated arguments (does calling someone "antisemite" mean they have to stop the first discussion and go on the defensive regarding their own attitudes towards jews? No. It doesn't.)

If the only card you have to play is name calling, your argument is bankrupt. Check and mate.

A spot of a difficulty, linguistically.

When an individual Moslem (or a specific group of Moslems) does something that accords with the stereotypical views held by the usual suspects about Moslems, then the usual suspects complain that nothing is done about it because of political correctness.

But when an individual Jew (or a specific group of Jews) does something that accords with a stereotypical view of Jews, then the SAME group of usual suspects cry "antisemite" if the actions of that or those Jews are criticised.

It is all tied together, no tail wagging the dog here. When Israel fights with its next door neighbors it stirs up the anger of the entire region. When Israel picks on Palestinians regional factions look around to see who they can attack as a counter measure. One assumes any jews still in Iraq are buried deep and out of sight, or more likely, left. That makes christians and minority sect muslim residents next in the picking off pecking order.

Israel treats its Palestinian citizens better than any of it's neighbouring Muslim countries do. They themselves say that. They also say that they prefer living in Israel, where they have equal rights as citizens, than in any Muslim country. Palestinian majority villages and towns refuse to become incorporated in the West Bank in a land exchange proposal. Your attempt to demonize Israel with your vicious lies makes you an antisemite.

My congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia was one of the co-sponsors of House Resolution 1765. Frank has been in Congress a long time and he is reported to be the largest recipient of Israel PAC money in the state of Virginia. In his promotional literature Frank brags about what a great family man he is, including pictures of himself with his grandchildren. I wish him and his family no ill, but I would like to make him think of the consequences of how he votes in Congress. Put Frank and his whole family into a burned out shell of a house in Gaza for a few days without food or water, knowing that to stick their heads out invites a round from an Israeli sniper. See how he would like it. What would be his reaction if one of his grandchildren were to become sick only to be denied access to a hospital three hundred yards away because an Israeli border patrol thug is trying to show how tough he is?...

Virginia Republican Rep. Frank Wolf says there is a genocide being perpetrated against the Christians of Iraq and the White House hasn't said a word about it, much less acted to stop it.

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.

"It is genocide. It meets the test of genocide," Wolf said Friday on Hugh Hewitt's radio show, which this writer guest hosted. "The definition of genocide was put together by the UN by a guy named Raphael Lemkin. But it is the eradication of a group of people – race, culture, ethnicity, religion. So this meets the official test of genocide."

Asked if President Barack Obama has spoken out against this atrocity, Wolf said he has not.

"No, the president hasn't said anything, the State Department hasn't said anything," he lamented. "Frankly, nobody is saying anything."

Asked what the United States could do about the situation in Mosul, Wolf listed several options.

"There is a lot we can do," he said. "One, the President of the United States can urge the Kurdish government to continue to guard and protect the Christians."

"Secondly, we can give some of the foreign aid that we are already giving, give it to a group like Catholic Relief or World Vision or a group like that, to provide relief – water, food, clothing," he continued. "Thirdly, we can tell the Maliki government to start protecting the Christian sites and the Christian communities. [Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-]Maliki flew out – all the Shia were flown out of Mosul – and they left the Christians there to die."

"And lastly," Wolf concluded, "every person who is listening should call their congressman and their senator and insist that they insist the White House do something."

"There are 23 pending sanctions through resolutions for The USA to either lift their veto or move to abstention."

Complete and utter bullsh*t Musket

A resolution is drafted and discussed by the Security Council of the United Nations. A final wording is agreed and a vote is taken. Any of the five permanent members can then veto the resolution and if that happens then that particular resolution is dead in the water - it cannot be "resurrected", there could be no lifting of veto or alteration of position - The phrase "That the council remains seized on or fixed on" relates to the possible drafting of new resolutions on the same subject.

You are purposely muddying the waters by differentiating between sanctions in force and sanctions awaiting enforcement. Oh, by the way, your stupid comment about dictatorships getting resolutions through? Members of the security council have a veto on implementation as The USA demonstrates. The sanction is there, the veto is about implementation. The technical term is "resolve to sanction."

The position of a body is the resolution of its highest ratifying assembly. In the case of The UN, that would be the general assembly. (Yes, funnily enough I have checked that. Years ago in fact when fishing for WHO funding for a UNHCR project we got involved with.)

So, first you say The UN don't have resolutions against Israel, then you say nobody listens to them (inadvertently a fact) and then you say the position of The UN isn't decided by The UN.

Am I dreaming or has Keith repeated yet again that Israel is legitimate in bombing children?

He keeps talking of international law yet The UN keeps reiterating that Israel is an aggressor and has no more right than Hamas.

It is this attitude, when repeated by important people rather than armchair soldiers such as Keith, that make situations worse.

On another thread I referred to the vast number of resolutions and sanctions against Israel. I even quoted from Keith's favourite source Wikipedia.

Pathetic.

In the meantime, Bradford City Council are flying the Palestinian flag outside the city hall. Not everybody is taken in by the fodder Keith loves to read and salivate over.

He says my comments are amusing. His make decent people queasy.

BTW ~~ Considering the tedious interminability of the portentous documents you continually see fit to copy/paste here, and appear to expect any human being to plough right thru, I think an accusation of 'hiding behind pieces of paper' somewhat ill becomes you, James!

Regards again

Stop hiding behind bits of paper Mike
The logic of your argument is that if Israel set up gas chambers and herded the Palestinian people into them it would be "Anti-Semitic" to compare them to the Nazis - give us a break!

.,,.

Constantly astounded at the rubbish one of Jim's apparent intelligence can keep on unblushingly coming out with. Time for him to "give us all a break".

Re pt 1: Hardly 'hiding behind a piece of paper' to cite the findings of an official committee set up by a recognised international body for the express purpose of establishing a definition of the topic immediately under consideration.

Pt2 - Let me know when they do, Jim; and I will stop thinking you 'antisemitic' in going on as if they already have -- which, just as a matter of fact, they haven't, you know; or anything remotely approaching it; and only a hostilely motivated fool could even suggest such a contingency. Honestly don't know what in hell you are on about —

-- & don't believe you really do either. You do sometimes get a bit carried away by your own rhetorical verbosity, you know, dear old chappie: and almost invariably make the sort of bloody fool of yourself which anyone with half an iota of sense can see you have done here, with that idiotic invented contingency quoted above.

Best regards as ever

The Israelophobes are driven to hijack threads, any threads, to attack Israel.

Well, it was *supposed* to be about the Caliphate. Now it seems to be an object lesson.

It was already Thursday, but His Lordship's artificial limb could not be found.
