Jim's Post was from 2011. The IHRA "definition" (nicked from a defunct and discarded definition from the EUMC in 2005) wasn't adopted until 2016. It may interest you to know that the original EUMC definition was drawn up by a panel consisting almost exclusively of representatives of pro-Israel lobby groups, one of the reasons it was quietly dropped (never adopted, in fact) by the EU as it was politically toxic. Over the years here I've done this to death several times, so if you don't believe me look it up.

Apropos of criticising the behaviour of the Israeli regime, my view is that equating it with that of the Nazis is made without regard for outcome. In other words, don't do it. Repressive regimes will always show attributes similar to what went on in Nazi Germany, but pointing to them in Israel's case isn't constructive however appropriate you think the comparison is. Aspects of the apartheid regimes in South Africa were definitely similar to what the Nazis got up to and aspects of the Israeli regime's behaviour towards Gazans are definitely comparable to apartheid. You don't get a free pass just by calling yourself a Jewish state. And if you're talking just about Israel you're not obliged to mention similar bad behaviour by other countries at the same time. You might have done that last week or be about to do it next week when you're talking about those countries. Maybe we do need a definition. Sorry, but that definition stinks.

"I rest my case."
No case - a retreat
The standard defintion of antiisemitism is "hatred ot the Jewish People"
You will never have a "case" until you explain why the Israeli regime is co-operating with the very type of people who sent six million Jews to their deaths in the Nazi Death Camps
You have no interest in the Jewish People, many of whom are as appalled as the rest of us at the damage done to them by an extremely right wing regime claiming to act on their behalf
Your interest is in supporting an exctermist right wing policy - period

"Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis is anti-Semitic."
That is a politically manipulated 'definition' that has bneed rawn up to defend Israel
The Israelis themselves continue to breach it (as you have by ignoring the last clause whichh clearly states that "It is antisemitic to associate the actions of the Israeli State with The Jewish People as a whole"
Israell and its supporters do this every time they accuse critics of Israeli Policy of antisemitism
They even breach it by accusing Jews of being "self haters" for criticising the policies of the Israeli regime
This deliberate use of the Jewish People as a human shield against International Prosecution is as antisemitic as you can possibly get
One of the greatest crimes against the Jewish People has been to make the charge of "antisemitism" totally meaningless and indistinguishable from real Jew Hating
That is what you and yours are defending
At least Iains and his lady fried have come out in the open over their hatred of the Irish - you refuse to acknowledge your own
Come back when you dind I ahve denigrated the Jewish People
If you made the same offer as I have, The Clare Cancer Society would not know what to do with your "generous donations"

By te way - exactly the same statement you have quoted was made by one of the six ex-heads of the Israeli Security Service, Mossad buring the making of the documentary 'The Gatekeepers"
Maybe the Israeli Regime is nor employing antisemites to defend Israel

I have claimed that there are comparisons ("echoes" is the word I used) to be drawn between the behaviour of the Nazis towards the Jews, and that of the Israelis towards the Palestinians

Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis is anti-Semitic.

"You know nothing about my "politics""
You are a supporter of an extrmist right wing Israeli regime that is in the process of ethnically cleannsing its country of Muslims - that tells me everything I need to know about your politics
Despite your accusing every critic of Israeli policies as a "Jew hater", you refuse to comment on the collusion between that regime and extremist right wing antisemitic organisations such as that of Orban
You stayed silent when that regime proclaimed that that regime decided to name its new railway station after Trump - an arch misogynist and racist who is drawing support from Americas Antisemires such as the Klan
You personally have put up the largest posing in this forum's history which was nothing more an Arab-hating diatribe
You have now joined your two comrades in arms in attacking the Irish people
Is there anything more I nee to know
You can place your accusations of "racism" alongside those of "antisemitism" - if you can produce one single scrap of proof of either, I will make a generous donation to any charity you care to name
I've waited several years for claims - I really am in no hurry

There are Antisemites everywhere - the British establishment has always been riddled with them

"Is this link to the German anthem a reference to IRA/Irish collaboration with the Nazis during W W II?"
Wheer thy decided "my enemies enemies are my friends, do you mean ?
Ireland used Germany in both wars to gain freedom from Britain - I see nothing wrong with that as long as they did not co-operate with what Germany was doing - which they most decidedly tdid not
Despite Ieland's neutrality, they conitinued to assist British pilots and british fighter planes infringed in Irish air space without hindrance
As far as the progressive Irish were concerned, there was little to choose between Nazi right wing philosophy and that of the British which had oppressed Ireland for eight centuries.
This was borne out by the fact that the British establishment was wquite happy to turn its back on the Nazis - to quote "New Germany will act as a bulwark against the threat of Bolshevism"
Ireland drew support from Germany while the short time KIng of England wast teaching his nephews and neices to give the Nazi Salute, The English Daily Mail was promoting Moseley;s Blackshirts as Britain's hope for the future and the Cabinet were licking "Herr Hitler's" arse
My old man went off to fight fascim in Spain - when he returned, he was given an MI5 record as a 'premature anti fascist' and was blacklisted from getting a job in his home town
