Political Figures

Anti-Semitism Rampant in BDS and "Israel Apartheid Week"

As expressing blunt anti-Semitism has become less and less "politically correct," anti-Semites have found a new way to express their Jew-hatred: through "anti-Zionism." Top anti-Zionist and anti-Israel activists lead widespread protests, boycott campaigns, and more. They claim to only fight Zionism, but these leading activists do not hold back in expressing their violent anti-Semitic views.

Is the New Egypt the New Nazi Germany?

“You are a Jew!” Actor Mahmoud Abd al-Ghaffar screamed at the female talk-show host and pulled her by her hair. “I hate the Jews to death!”

Exposed: The Palestine Solidarity Campaign's Anti-Semitic Agenda

Cliff Hanley believes 9/11 is a Jewish conspiracy; Sammi Ibrahem supports the Holocaust and refers to the Nazis as "martyrs"; Ellie Merton supports Holocaust denial; and Gill Kaffash believes the Holocaust is a lie.

Hamas Charter Preaches Nazi-Like Propaganda and Genocide against Jews

"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews killing the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."

Ingmar Karlsson, retired senior Swedish diplomat, condemns Zionism and calls for “parallel sovereignty” to solve the Israel-Arab conflict

 

Ingmar Karlsson wrote a book titled: “The bride is beautiful, but she is married to another man: Zionism - the ideology at the end of the road?” Karlsson questions the idea of a Jewish State by falsifying the words of Zionist thinkers. Finally, Karlsson proposes a solution to the Arab-Israel conflict by replacing the Jewish State of Israel with two “parallel states” established in the same territory.

The book makes use of such rhetoric as: “The fundamental difference between South African and Zionist colonialism is the former wanted land and people while the latter only wanted land.” The book also states that in Israel -- where Arabic is an official state language -- “Hebrew has a special status, with no consideration” for Arabic as “the area’s original language.”

Palestinian Federation in Chile active in fostering hatred against Israel

Martín Quispe Mayta establishes a Nazi Party in Peru and calls for expulsion of all Jews from the country

 

Martin Quispe Mayta is the founder of a movement called "Andean Peru National Socialism Movement," whose fundamental principle is that Jews are responsible for all misfortunes. In doing this he joins other neo-Nazi organizations [described previously by fighthatred.com] such as the Autonomous National Christian Equality (INCA) headed by Ricardo de Spirito Balbuena who has publicly declared democracy to be “bullshit,” and dresses in Nazi-inspired outfits.

In an interview with British newspaper The Guardian published August 16, 2012, Martín Quispe Mayta frowned imperiously from behind a desk adorned with portraits of Adolf Hitler, a copy of Mein Kampf, and a collection of toy cars. Draped on the wall behind him is a large red, white and black flag bearing a symbol that looks suspiciously like a swastika.

They do this through two groups in which they are active: the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), and the Free Gaza Movement.

Zsolt Barath of the Jobbik party revives the 1882 Hungarian blood libel against the Jews

 

In a speech to the Parliament, Zsolt Barath criticized the verdict in a well-known, 19th-century court case that had found several Jews innocent of murdering a Hungarian peasant girl. That verdict stoked anti-Semitism in Hungary at the time and led to disturbances in cities across the country.

On April 3, 2012, Barath, representative for the Jasz-Szolnok county Metro area since his election in 25/04/2010, and member of the far-right Jobbik party, commemorated the case by claiming the judge had proof of the defendants' guilt but succumbed to pressure to acquit them to avoid seeing Hungary bankrupted by international financiers who he implied were Jewish.

He went on to claim that Hungary is again facing the pressures of such Jewish “international financiers.”

Rifat Odeh Kassis uses his position as president of the “Defence for Children International”(DCI) to delegitimize Israel

 

Rifat Odeh Kassis in 1992 founded the Palestinian section of the international child rights organization, Defence for Children International (DCI). Far from confining itself to the objectives of its mission statement “Promoting and protecting the rights of Palestinian children in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC),” Kassis uses DCI-Pal to advance a radical anti-Israel agenda through its support for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanction campaigns and in lobbying foreign governments and organizations against Israel.

Rae Abileah has found her calling as a professional Jewish activist for CODEPINK against Israel

 

Rae Abileah is the woman who made headlines when she disrupted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speaking engagement at the United States Congress on May 24, 2011. She held a banner that said “Occupying land is indefensible” and shouted “No more occupation, stop Israel war crimes, equal rights for Palestinians, occupation is indefensible.”

Rae Abileah is a national organizer for CODEPINK, an anti-war group composed mainly of women. CODEPINK calls itself a peace and social justice movement (pacifist) that they state is working to end U.S. funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect US resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities.

Richard Falk Apologizes to Animals, Mocks Jews

After first denying that he published an anti-Semitic cartoon on his blog, the United Nation's Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Palestinian territories has admitted he did do so, and has published a mocking apology. The cartoon depicted a Jewish dog (with yarmulke and Star of David) eating a bloody human body. Responding to criticism of the cartoon, Richard Falk states that we should treat animals with respect, making a joke of his apology. Watchog organization UN Watch has called for his removal from a sensitive and influential UN position, but that is highly unlikely to happen.
