Anti-Semitism Is Back. Will You Stand By Or Stand up? by Gabriel Groisman, The Huffington Post, June 23, 2016

Suddenly, mainstream culture is finding cover for the age-old hatred of Jews. They’ve figured it out.  So long as the attack is lightly-battered and flash fried in a light coat of anti-Israel sentiment, and as long as you pretend you are fighting for “human rights,” the rise of anti-Semitism is socially acceptable. It shouldn’t be. It’s can’t be. Not again.

This report also documents a continued global increase in anti-Semitism. Holocaust denial and glorification remained troubling themes, and opposition to Israeli policy at times was used to promote or justify blatant anti-Semitism. When political leaders condoned anti-Semitism, it set the tone for its persistence and growth in countries around the world. Of great concern were expressions of anti-Semitism by government officials, by religious leaders, and by the media, particularly in Venezuela, Egypt, and Iran. At times, such statements led to desecration and violence.

“Antisemitism is to be distinguished from mere prejudice or discrimination or intolerance or even hatred.  It is a modern political ideology and/or political movement that organizes politics against the Jews. [.…]  The organization of politics against the Jews is of a different order from all those other forms of prejudice and bias.  [.…]  Anti-Zionism is not only co-extensive with antisemitism, it’s a much more concentrated and expanded form of it.” “Far from undergoing defeat when Nazism was defeated in Europe, antisemitism emerged more powerfully than ever in new and improved form, absorbing into itself the negative imagery of its earlier forms, broadening its base of support in the international arena, forging a whole new anti-democratic, anti-Western, anti-liberal coalition with ‘Death to Israel’ instead of ‘Death to the Jews’ as its rallying cry.”

[T]he West’s ability to ignore the Arab world’s pervasive anti-Semitism means it consistently fails to understand the most basic problem facing Arab countries. [….] Arab anti-Semitism matters so desperately – not because of the threat it poses to Israel, though that is real, but because of the threat it poses to Arab countries’ own development.

The Suicidal Passion: Who is damaged more by anti-Semitism — Jews, or those who organize politics against them? by Ruth R. Wisse, The Weekly Standard, Vol. 17, No. 10, November 21, 2011.

[W]hether aimed at the Jews in their dispersion or in their homeland, anti-Semitism and its offshoot anti-Zionism are about the Jews only in the way that fox hunting is about foxes. Those who organize their hunt around the fox consider it the best animal to hunt. Important as it may be to identify those features in the swift little animal that make it the chosen target of those giving chase, any analysis of fox hunting must concentrate on the hunters—their motivations, strategies, implements, goals, and perceived gains. [….] Anti-Semitism is a political instrument—a strategy, an ideology, sometimes a movement that organizes politics against the Jews.

“Over the 60 years of Israel’s existence, a new strain of anti-Semitism has evolved that targets Israel and Zionism. Virulent attacks on the Jewish state have assumed the trope of a political discourse. This allows such attacks to pass as constitutionally protected and socially-acceptable criticism. In truth, this new form of attack is merely a new adaptation of the age-old virus of anti-Semitism. “

“A new virulent strain of the old anti-Semitism is spreading worldwide. This hate — of a magnitude not seen in more than 70 years — is not just espoused by Iran’s loony president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, or radical jihadists. The latest anti-Semitism is also now mouthed by world leaders and sophisticated politicians and academics. Their loathing often masquerades as “anti-Zionism” or “legitimate” criticism of Israel. But the venom exclusively reserved for the Jewish state betrays existential hatred.”
