Rabbi Warns of Virulent Anti-Semitism on Campus

By Paul Lungen,

Rabbi Benjamin Blech,
looking extremely worried
at the massive rise of “virulent anti-Semitism” 

LD: Readers, be prepared to shed some tears for this grief-stricken rabbi — and ask yourself what more you could do to sing the praises of Israel, the only peace-loving democracy in the Middle East. The four pictures and captions below are my own commentary on the text.

The Canadian Jewish News, 24 April 2019.  Students at American universities face a barrage of anti-Israel propaganda, anti-Zionist student groups and teachers who try to convince them that the support of Israel they grew up with is wrong, according to Rabbi Benjamin Blech.

“Leftist propaganda is destroying the commitment we American Jews have always had with the only democracy in the Middle East,” Rabbi Blech said. “It’s a disease that’s rampant and this needs to be vaccinated against.”

SHED  SOME  TEARS  FOR  ISRAEL,
“THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE EAST.”

Rabbi Blech, who’s worked as a professor of Talmud at Yeshiva University in New York since 1966, said parents and the broader Jewish community need to do a better job of preparing Jewish children for the onslaught of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic messaging they will be subjected to on campus.

A prolific author and lecturer, Rabbi Blech will deliver the keynote address on  “Losing our youth,” the phenomenon of young Jews turning away from Israel and joining anti-Israel groups, at a symposium on May 5 at Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto Congregation, which is sponsored by Aish Toronto.

How bad is it getting on American campuses?

Rabbi Blech pointed to a conference on the conflict in Gaza that was held from March 22-24 at the University of North Carolina. Rapper Tamer Nafer, who provided the entertainment, told the audience, “This is my anti-Semitic song.”

Video of the conference, which was shot secretly by filmmaker Ami Horowitz and can be found on YouTube, showed the rapper telling the audience, to sounds of laughter, “Don’t think of Rihanna when you sing this, don’t think of Beyonce. Think of Mel Gibson. Go that anti-Semitic.” Asking the audience to participate, Rapper Tamer Nafer said, “I need your help. I cannot be anti-Semitic alone.”

Hafer then sings, and the audience repeats, “Oh, I’m in love with a Jew!”

Horowitz’s video also includes conversations with audience members who made anti-Semitic remarks. For Rabbi Blech, that sort of open and boastful anti-Semitism resembles Nazi Germany.

SHADES  OF  NAZI  GERMANY?

NICE  JEWISH  SETTLERS 
BEING  KIND  TO  A  PALESTINIAN  WOMAN IN OCCUPIED PALESTINE

“It was frightening to watch,” the Rabbi said. “You had an entire audience of young people singing anti-Semitic, hate-Jews songs.” On campuses, what started as purported critiques of Zionism and Israel have morphed into open anti-Semitism, he said.

“Progressives and liberals” were responsible for the attacks on Jews and Israel, Rabbi Blech continued. “Professors across the United States seem to be extremely liberal, anti-Israel and more anti-Jewish, and they make little effort to separate the two.” At the same time, pro-Israel speakers are “shouted down, screamed at” and have been denied access to campus because police say they can’t ensure the safety of the event, he said.

Faced with constant anti-Israel rhetoric, some Jews don’t just abandon their support for Israel, but actively participate in anti-Israel groups.

JEWISH  SETTLERS  IN  PALESTINE,
FRESH FROM CHARM SCHOOL.
Question:
Why are such nice people being subjected to anti-Semitism?

“It is an ancient truth,” Rabbi Blech said. “In former times, Jewish converts to Christianity were more Catholic than the Pope, to prove their newfound conviction.

Looking beyond campuses, Rabbi Blech pointed to disturbing manifestations of anti-Semitism among important policy influencers: politicians feel free to associate with the notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, and  in Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar repeats anti-Semitic stereotypes.

“We have to fight back with knowledge and education,” the Rabbi said. We have to address the issue and prepare youngsters for what they can expect on campus. They have to be educated about the pro-Israel side of the debate and encouraged “not to be meek and not to accept what their professors say. They need to learn the value of activism and speaking out,” he said.

G’D BLESS YOU, ISRAEL!

  1. I was a bit worried about posting this article on our site with its controversial pictures and captions. My initial email to my cousin Lasha Darkmoon on receiving this new submission was: “Sorry Lasha, I can’t publish this. Not with the over-the-top pictures and captions you have supplied. They could get our website shut down.”

    I was awaiting my cousin’s response with trepidation. This is because I am very nervous about censoring LD’s work , which I’ve had to do a few times in the past. Her reply pleased me. “Why not just publish it and stop being some such a fusspot?” she wrote. “Let our readers decide. If they want the article deleted, or the pictures removed, let them say so. Let it be a democratic decision.”

    I was reassured by this advice.

    The article will be removed (or its pictures and captions deleted) if the majority of our readers strongly recommend this. So it’s up to our readers. Please advise.

    1. Whew! You must be crazy to publish this article with those insulting pictures! You’re asking for trouble. I think Lady Darkmoon needs her head tested. She has no idea how offensive those pictures are to every righteous and peace-loving Jewish person.

      Delete the whole article please, or remove the disgusting pics. That’s my honest advice.

      Give your readers a more positive picture of Israel, okay? And stop feeding the flames of anti-Semitism with this descent into the sewers of Jew hatred.

      1. Modern day so-called “Jews” cannot be, and will never be “Israel”.

        the “Proselytes” to Talmudic Judaism known as “Jews” are in fact Gog & Magog
        converts…”PROSELYTES” to the Synagogue of Satan BAD FAITH {{{JEW}}} “Religion”

        MASS MURDER for FILTHY LUCRE…{{{JEW}}} religion.

      2. If these were pictures of white yobbos there would be applause from the Jewish Lobby.

        I grew up with a a favorable view of Jews, but as I grew older I began to notice the blatant censorship of news about Jews. Any criticism of any Jew is now smeared as antisemitic. Any historical discussion will always blank out unfavorable facts about the role of Jews. The 1917 Russian Revolution was not in fact a Russian Revolution. The Bolsheviks were a bunch of ruthless Jewish killers. The five men who shot and bayoneted the Tsar and his young family were all Jews. You will not see that in the western media. You will not see reports of Jewish dominance and arrogance in 1920s Weimar Germany

        I am not suggesting that today’s Jews are responsible for the terrible crimes of the Russian Bolsheviks but today’s Jews have gained power by presenting themselves as victims, when the reverse is true.

    2. @ Montecristo (Admin)

      The article will be removed (or its pictures and captions deleted) if the majority of our readers strongly recommend this. So it’s up to our readers. Please advise.

      My advice is to keep the whole thing as is: It does not tell much about the Jews, but to an intelligent reader it tells alot about you and your cousin.

  2. Monty –

    I would suggest ya remove the pic of Rabbi Benjamin Blech. It is totally extremely distasteful!!

  3. A perfect illustration of these primitive tribalist settlers is the Anne Barker story – a naive and liberal ABC journalist who got covered in spit because she turned on her tape recorder on the wrong day of the week:

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2009-07-06/reporter-feels-mobs-hate-in-the-holy-city/1343182

    “Spit like rain

    I found myself herded against a brick wall as they kept on spitting – on my face, my hair, my clothes, my arms.

    It was like rain, coming at me from all directions – hitting my recorder, my bag, my shoes, even my glasses.

    Big gobs of spit landed on me like heavy raindrops. I could even smell it as it fell on my face.

    Somewhere behind me – I didn’t see him – a man on a stairway either kicked me in the head or knocked something heavy against me.

    I wasn’t even sure why the mob was angry with me. Was it because I was a journalist? Or a woman? Because I wasn’t Jewish in an Orthodox area? Was I not dressed conservatively enough?

    In fact, I was later told, it was because using a tape-recorder is itself a desecration of the Shabbat even though I’m not Jewish and don’t observe the Sabbath.

    It was lucky that I don’t speak Yiddish. At least I was spared the knowledge of whatever filth they were screaming at me.”

    I for one am glad that the world is encouraging them to move to Israel. We should all chip in and relocate every single Jew to the holy land and then build a 100′ high wall to keep them contained.

      I for one am glad that the world is encouraging them [JEWS] to move to Israel. We should all chip in and relocate every single Jew to the holy land and then build a 100′ high wall to keep them contained.

      Sadly, I cannot agree with you, because your solution to the Jewish problem shows a complete disregard for the Palestinians. If your answer to this is, “To hell with the Palestinians!” then all I can say to you is: You lack a conscience. You lack the basic elements of morality if you’re willing to dump the world’s unwanted Jews on the beleaguered Palestinians. You remind me of a man who gets rid of the poisonous snake in your garden by tossing it over the fence into your neighbor’s garden.

      The rest of your comment is fine. Most enjoyable to read.

    Christopher Hedges, Pulitzer Prize Winning American Journalist, on assignment in Gaza

    This is MILD STUFF for what Israel and its partners in crime have done to advance the interests of the Jewish community.

    Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I can’t help but think that before Israel, we had no enemies in the Middle East. — Fr. John Sheehan, S.J.

    When the van belonging to the cheering Israelis was stopped by the police, the driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers: ‘We are Israelis. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are your problem.’ — ABC’s program 20/20 covering the involvement of members of Israeli intelligence in the attacks of September 11.

    There’s a Jewish cabal, you know, running through this, working with people like [Federal Reserve Chairman Arthur] Burns and the rest. And they all—they all only talk to Jews. –Richard M Nixon, July 24, 1971

    “I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would RISE UP IN ARMS. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.”
    Thomas H. Moorer (1912 – 2004) Admiral, US Navy & Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff during interview on 24 August 1983

    “The media runs the world. Absolutely. No tanks or planes. The media and the public companies. This is what The Protocols of [the Learned Elders of] Zion [is all about].

    “The Zionists, last century, were persecuted in Europe. So they immigrated to the United States. They had a target. They were united. And they did not permit [statements] critical of Zion. They went all the way to control the world and to control the minds of the people through the media. There’s a lesson to learn from them.

    “They have control of the media here. We know it. They did not do it through tanks or machine guns. They planned of course. They united. Did you see Pat Buchanan’s book [The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization]? He makes sense.”

    Fear not the path of the truth because of the lack of people walking on it.”

  6. Why do I get the feeling that if and when push comes to shove, this will be one time the cops won’t be getting their standard “stand down” orders.
    Instead they’ll be getting orders to squash any violent incidences with extreme prejudice.

    With the current atmosphere one of minorities feeling their oats, we shouldn’t have to wait long to find out.

  7. What are they doing here? Weren’t they given their own country to put an end to this constant bitchery?

    1. Yes, they were given their own country in 1948. But they regard it as a holiday home. 60 per cent of them live abroad, outside Israel.

      Roughly 40% of Jews (6 million) live in Israel and roughly 40 percent (6 million) live in the United States. The other 20 per cent are scattered over the rest of the world.

      More Jews live in North America (US + Canada) than in Israel itself. North America is their New Zion and New York is their New Jerusalem. Los Angeles is their Tel Aviv where most of America’s pornography is produced in the San Fernando Valley, known locally as “Porn Valley”. A huge amount of child porn is produced in this area of California, most of it by Jews.

  8. calling it a democracy sure as hell doesn’t make it one…
    MAYBE it’s a democracy for the jews…
    but the whole world knows it’s apartheid for the palestinians…
    “Leftist propaganda is destroying the commitment we American Jews have always had with the only democracy in the Middle East,” Rabbi Blech said. “It’s a disease that’s rampant and this needs to be vaccinated against.”
    don’t pooh pooh this too fast…
    bill gates said the same thing about vaccinating people against ‘fundamentalism’…
    anybody think he doesn’t mean it?
    yes, fundamentalism is some kind of mental disorder, but any so-called ‘vaccine’ against it would have to work more long the lines of lobotomy…
    you can bet your boots the good rabbi here would gladly lobotomize any so-called ‘antisemites’, those who can’t dig zionsm or any of the rest of the commie globalist bankster super surveillance fascist military dictatorship rabbi state…

    what’s rap music, if not a lot of panderous amoral perverts peddling violence and social unrest, for money….
    and it just so happens the jewish ‘filmmaker’ ami horowitz was in the audience, ready to capture the sensation and jack it onto the internet, as rapper Nafer spells it out clearly… who’s he working for? ask ami horowitz…
    you get the message right? – ANTISEMITISM IS A TERRIBLE PROBLEM…
    people aren’t mad at israel because of its policies..
    it’s only because they’re nazis…

  9. The article is not anti-semitic at all. It makes hardly any mention of the Palestinian people, other than the photo of the youngsters protecting themselves from that ‘lady in black’. But we don’t really know if she’s a Semite or not, do we?

    It does however, show the contempt with which the Israeli state views the Semitic people of Palestine and likely the rest of the world. It would seem they wish to control any discourse in their favor. I view that as propaganda. So in that it’s very enlightening.

  10. What is Antisemitism? Get two opposing lawyers and hear them argue for days without any truthful results.
    Being born in Germany and having lived in a few different countries over the years, with a changed Nationality and meeting a few Jews in business along the way, one born in “Germamya of Edom” is still a “natural born Jew hater and a descendant of murderer” when it comes to any and I mean ANY kind of criticism or opposition relating to THE(special)ONES rules and kingdom. Since WW2 the world has become a German birthright to be antisemitic, a hater of Jews and the ones who cold blooded killed “6 Million innocent Jewish souls”.
    Thou shall not speak – just suffer Germamya! Megillah 6b is a great read to understand the “Anti-german” cause and the tactical side of the war against the beasts. Attack is still the best self defense to keep the lid on the kosher boiling pot. Time has come to remove the lid for good!
