Here we go again! excepts from an article in Ynet. this applies to this board as well! The Jews are to blame Two weeks ago, Henry Kissinger published an article in the Washington Post about America and Iran. The item revealed nothing new: Kissinger has not been revealing anything new for many years now . It wasnt the article that was of interest, but rather, the talkbacks that the newspapers website posted below the item. Its been a while since Ive seen such overabundance of Jew hatred. The respondents, all of them using nicknames, charged the Jewish people with conspiring to entangle the United States in a military operation in Iran in order to make profits and promote the State of Israels dark interests. The Jews control the American administration, lamented the respondents in one talkback after another. They control Congress and the media. The Jews are Americas real enemy. There were always anti-Semites in American. The surprise is that this anti-Semitic garbage is being published by one of the worlds most respected newspapers. The second surprise is that it didnt prompt much reaction. The Jewish community in the US has a powerful and effective organization tasked with fighting any anti-Semitic display. Its called the Anti-Defamation League. The Leagues National Director, Abe Foxman, was in Israel last week. I told him about the talkbacks I read and he shook his head sadly. The League employs seven people in monitoring anti-Semitic statements on the Internet. Yet they cant handle the onslaught. When group members turn to a website and ask to remove a delusional statement, they sometimes get a reply. Other times they are asked to send in a response, and at times they are rejected, on the grounds that the Internet should not be censored. One way or another, the venom has already settled in Google and it shall remain there for eternity This phenomenon has far-reaching implications on the public discourse. In this regrettable case, it means that racist and anti-Semitic doctrines shift from the crazy margins to the center of the spectrum. Everything is legitimate; everything is worthy of being published. Foxman told me about a case he was involved in recently. It was about a Jewish professor from Santa Barbara, California, who compared the IDFs conduct in Gaza to the conduct of the Germans at the Warsaw ghetto, no less. Foxman sent the professor a letter and demanded that he issue an apology. Instead of apologizing, the professor disseminated Foxmans letter via e-mail. My freedom of expression is being undermined, he claimed. The first amendment to the constitution is being violated. What we have here is a thought police that harasses anyone who thinks differently. The media in California was all over the story: Mud-wrestling between Jews is almost as sexy as mud-wrestling between women. And now, Foxman is debating on his next move: Should he continue to fight for the honor of the IDF and of the Warsaw ghetto, or just give up.
